THE WAY THEY HAVE THE CHURCH LOCKED DOWN

The left hates the church. This is fact and not fiction. You can count on them to use the coronavirus in an attempt to damage Christianity. Their ultimate goal is to sell preachers on a future church with a vastly decreased influence on the nation.

They proved both their hatred and their future plans by the way they closed the churches during this pandemic. They should have found a way to keep churches open, and they could have done so, easily: they found a way to keep “necessary businesses” like Planned Parenthood open.

But by not even trying to find a way, they made a very dangerous statement. The First Amendment to the Constitution states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”

It is illegal to prevent worship. If there was any way possible to allow churches to remain open safely, they were duty bound to find it.

If it is in the Constitution that you can’t create a law which prevents American citizens from meeting for worship in churches, why did they do it? California’s Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) will tell you that it is necessary to close churches for the safety of the public. That is a bald-faced lie. California found a way to keep Walmart, Costco, and liquor stores open, as well as the Planned Parenthood death mills.

But when it came to churches, they didn’t even try. They didn’t even bother to consult pastors about what could be done. California is the epicenter of technology, and they couldn’t find a solution for safe worship? Why would they do this? Could it be they couldn’t find a way to keep churches open for the same reason a burglar can’t find a policeman?

The preexisting hatred for the church emboldened them to ignore their Constitutional priority to allow freedom of religion. This hatred is so blatant and open that Governor Northam of Virginia hideously overruled freedom of religion by passing a law that forces churches to allow men to use the ladies room.

Ever notice how the Left uses the phrase “freedom of worship” rather than “freedom of religion”? They do that on purpose. They use it to justify their bans on churches. They say, “You can worship God in nature, in your car, or in your house.” But “freedom of religion” means something else, entirely. Freedom of religion refers to houses of worship, doctrines, creeds and traditions.

Freedom of religion means you cannot write a law that overrules a religious conviction, but that is precisely what Northam did. He is saying, in essence, “I don’t care what your Bible says, I order you to violate your faith.” Using that logic, they could force Rabbis to eat ham sandwiches…

So why did they do all these things? This, my friend, was merely a dress rehearsal. They flexed their muscles to prove they could close down every church and keep them closed for as long as they wanted. If you think they won’t do it again—and next time, do it with far less justification—you are naïve.

The purpose of the test was to see how America would react. Look carefully at these verses:

Acts 12:1-3, “Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword. And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter, also.” Are you seeing a pattern here?

When Herod saw how murdering Christian leaders pleased the anti-Christian crowd, it emboldened him to arrest Peter. Bingo! That is what California and other States are doing. Testing to see how it plays with their base when they persecute the church.

Here is the tragic fact we must face. Millions were okay with the church shutdown because they hate President Trump and they see the church as his ally.

Long after the virus is no longer a viable threat, every State under Democrat rule will keep churches closed as long as possible. And even after they allow us to open, there will be permanent irrational limitations placed on us. Here in Reno, they opened the marijuana dispensaries today, but churches are still forced to remain closed indefinitely. Go figure.

I hate the term ‘wakeup call’ because it is vastly over-used. But, this really is a wakeup call. Just as Paul indicted the Philippian politicos for their gross violation of Roman law in Acts 16, we must take legal action against all the governors who illegally violated the Constitution, and who oppressed the church.

If we fail to come together in unity and act against this tyranny, we will be bitterly failing our children and future generations.

It’s a hard truth, but when it comes to defending freedom of religion, at this point, we can only look to God and ourselves. But if God be for us, who can be against us?

ABUSING THE WARNINGS OF DAVID WILKERSON

David Wilkerson was a true prophet. The following prophecy has been attributed to him: “I see a plague coming on the world, and the bars, churches and government will be shut down. The plague will hit New York City and shake it like it has never been shaken. The plague is going to force prayerless believers into radical prayer and into their Bibles, and repentance will be the cry from the man of God in the pulpit. And out of it will come a third Great Awakening that will sweep America and the world.”

The thing is, no one close to David Wilkerson from his family, staff or from the congregation of his church ever heard him say this quote. It does not exist in any of his recorded messages or writings, so I cannot confirm nor deny the validity of this quote.

But it doesn’t really matter when you consider what can be confirmed. David Wilkerson spent years warning America that a storm was coming. Here is what we know he said about New York City, “In one hour everything is going to change.”

Then he said, “I believe that when the coming storm hits with full fury, and the nation is reeling with panic and fear, people will flee all false gospels and feel-good churches. Christians will forget about gospel entertainment and Christian TV, and they’ll start demanding hard truth. They’ll flock to hear godly pastors, demanding the true word of God. Their cry will be, “Who will preach to us a prophetic, life-changing word?”

What I can also confirm is a destructive hypocrisy in the Body of Christ toward David Wilkerson.  Jesus said, “Yes, woe to you, Pharisees, and you religious leaders—hypocrites! For you build monuments to the prophets killed by your fathers and lay flowers on the graves of the godly men they destroyed, and say, ‘We certainly would never have acted as our fathers did.’ “In saying that, you are accusing yourselves of being the sons of those who killed the prophets, and you are following in their steps, filling up the full measure of their evil” (Matthew 23:29-32).

Many—especially preachers—condemned David Wilkerson while he was alive, but now those same people are laying verbal flowers at the shrine of his memory, because of a single tantalizing quote. That confirms that even in the midst of a pandemic, there is a more of a tendency toward entertainment, than toward conviction.

Long after many of the prophets died, their predictions came true. Many of the sons of those who killed these vessels of God stood in awe of the accuracy of the prophecies, but did not repent of the evil the prophecies warned about. That is what is happening right now

In reference to the words of David Wilkerson, we are straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel. We are missing the point entirely. All things taken together, if we truly do revere David’s gift, we have to make several confessions.

We must confess that the virus we are fighting is the result of national sin, because David Wilkerson said the storm was a judgment.  If you do not accept David’s rebuke and warning, then you are laying flowers at a tomb, while rejecting the prophet.

David Wilkerson told us why America’s idols would be toppled: “What is the reason for this judgment? It will come as God’s wrath upon a nation that has shed rivers of innocent blood!” David Wilkerson pointed to abortion and to children who were being sold into sexual slavery as the reason America would suffer a storm.

But he also warned the church about carnality and said it was a major factor in the judgment of God on America. As far back as 1998, David Wilkerson solemnly warned the compromised American church and instructed those with a heart for God to get out of their dead churches. He also instructed them to seek God’s comfort and protection from what was about to come upon America. He said:

“The majority of churchgoers today soundly reject all prophetic warnings of a coming storm. Indeed, the American church today is the most blatant “feel good” church in all of history. But, like Israel, we’re only experiencing the calm before the storm!

“Likewise today, Christians by the multiple thousands are casting off the yoke of Christ, tossing aside all limits and restrictions. This attitude is prevalent in many of the books and magazines you find in Christian bookstores. It’s almost as if our leaders are saying, “Relax! God isn’t hard. He’s our Daddy, we’re all his kids, and we’re meant to have a good time. Don’t let anyone disturb your fun!””

Many are still having fun. Many think this pandemic will soon be behind us and the future will return undisturbed. It is disastrous to have fun cherry-picking the prophecies that are tasty morsels, but rejecting the repentance that they demand. Many are doing that right now—even in the face of total confirmation of why God did this—and what we need to do.

But the most chilling question we must ask is what will happen if we do not repent. Will we force the hand of God to act yet again to try and save us?

Is there hope? There is great hope! David Wilkerson not only predicted this storm, he gave amazing counsel for enduring it: “Beloved, if we’re going to face the coming storm, then we need to be prepared so that nothing disturbs our spirit. And the only way to do that is to spend time in the Father’s presence, beholding His face. We have to be shut in with Him, on our knees, until we’re thoroughly persuaded He’s at our right hand!”

“God is clearly telling us, “Don’t be moved or agitated by anything you see. Keep your eyes focused on Me, and you will retain your joy!”

“You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of joy in Your presence” (Acts 2:28).

We always have to keep in mind that God’s only purpose in lovingly calling us back to Himself is to protect us in such times of storm!

And finally, these soul searching questions: Are you acting on the warnings of David Wilkerson? Are you done with carnal churches? Are you repenting of the sins that God is grieved by? And finally, preacher—are you telling America she must repent, or will you keep flattering those who are calling down destruction upon us?

TIME TO GET OUT OF THE CARNAL MEGA CHURCHES

This morning the Holy Spirit gave me a chilling warning: “Now that a glimmer of hope has appeared that America may be reopening, carnal mega-churches will not only revert to their old ways—they will get worse.” This will make them one of the most dangerous places for you to be.

These mega-church pastors have not repented of their carnal gospel, and therefore their people have not repented of their carnal ways. The contaminated crowd will put pressure on pastors to continue where they left off, and once again demand, “Preach what I want to hear!”

Before you reject me for raising this issue and accuse me of attacking them, consider this: they are attacking us. They are attacking the Word of God. They are attacking revival and the counsel of God for this crisis. They are endangering America.

This is what you will soon see in these churches:

  • Evangelical and Spirit-filled pastors performing same-sex-marriage ceremonies.
  • Intensified focus on material wealth, entitlement, and grace-licenses for greater immorality.
  • Churches will become even more like nightclubs than they are now.
  • Open opposition to Donald Trump will include false charges of racism, because compromised pastors and their “woke” audience care more for those who come here illegally than for those who are killed by illegals.
  • They will send money to programs that either support or perform abortions.

What should you do?

Get out! Separate yourselves from these carnal mega-churches. Staying in them puts you in harm’s way for the next judgment God is about to bring, in order to cleanse our nation.

Get out of these false churches, because their ways will infect you and your children. Get out because you are helping to finance something that God hates. In God’s eyes, false houses of worship carry the same threat level as atheism, drug addiction, and radical Islam.

But the primary reason to get out is stated clearly in 2 Timothy 2: 20-21, “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.”

In the Body of Christ, which is the ‘great house’ Paul was referring to, there are both vessels of honor and dishonor. He is challenging you to think about what your calling and destiny mean to you. What does it mean to you to be anointed, strong in gifts of power, and to carry out great exploits for Christ?

Paul is plainly telling you, you can’t do that, unless you separate from them.  The words he uses are “separate yourself from these.” Who do you think “these” are? They are the dishonorable carnal and false vessels that give Christianity a bad rep—a version of our faith that is responsible, to a great degree, for our national disasters.

It’s as clear as it can be: either get away from the fleshy, flashy, and fake, or forget about having any power with God.

Now, get in! After you get out, you have to get in. You aren’t a lone ranger. You need to be in a church where the leader is pressing into God, seeking revival. Find a church with a godly leader who is neither your ‘theological teddy bear,’ nor your ‘pulpit impresario.’ Find a man or woman of God who is paying the price to worship in Spirit and in Truth—find a leader who is an equipper, not an enabler. Go where the fire is falling. Don’t pick a house that titillates you; find the one that the Lord assigns you to.

The nation is filled with houses of God that will be ground zero for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. True prophets like David Wilkerson foretold of twin events—a calamity that would shut down America in an instant, followed by a fresh wave—a reformation of the Holy Fire of God, leading to a massive harvest.

Hold on! Another Azusa St. or Jesus Movement-type of event is in store for the people who know their God, and for the houses that have stayed faithful to their Lord.

On the other hand, there is no doubt that America has filled up God’s cup of wrath. Though we have passed through one storm—it won’t be the last. If we don’t learn the lesson, and repent, the wrath of God will again come down upon wickedness, because He means to purify the church and save our nation from itself.

The carnal mega-church is reading the message that relief is just around the corner, all wrong. It may be that God is allowing them to reap the full and vile consequences that their deception has earned—so that they will never again make such monstrous choices.

As shocking as the judgement will be so shall be the protection and prosperity of the righteous. The contrast will be as great as light and dark.

Get out! Then, get in!

“(Peter was preaching, and) went on in this vein for a long time, urging them over and over, “Get out while you can; get out of this sick and stupid culture!” (Acts 2:40, The Message)
