NO. THE BIBLE DOES NOT TELL YOU TO OBEY BAD LAWS

Gavin Newsom ordered churches not to sing and worship. I can’t think of a worse idea than to stop praise and worship because Gavin Newsom told you to. It’s time  to wake up to the sad truth that California has declared war on the church. They were aggressively oppressing Christians in California long before Covid 19.

This latest travesty is just using the Pandemic as an excuse. This is just a test to see how the public reacts to Christian persecution. If we do not vehemently reject this tyranny, it will embolden Democrat leaders in other states to do the same thing. It is time to resist.

Doesn’t the Bible tell us to obey them no matter what? Absolutely not. And it is shocking how many believers do not know their Bible or have been given false teaching.

There is no verse in the Bible that tells you to obey evil government or laws. And again, if we don’t realize that now, it will soon be too late.

Let me prove to you beyond any doubt that the Bible tells us what we must do in the face of wicked government and laws.

First, I will expose a pathetic heresy that many believers commonly accept as truth. This is a widespread excuse for submitting when we should disobey.

Here is an example of someone who wrote me while under the influence of this false teaching:

“Out of curiosity, how do you justify your argument against obeying the government when you read Romans 13:1-7. The government Paul was talking about was even more oppressive than anything we can imagine. You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government. And, what was Paul’s response? Did he call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above, he said, in the face of a brutal government, to obey. He didn’t say obey if your rights are recognized, he said obey. The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.”

 

This defense of submission to evil government is riddled with error and falsehoods. Here are my responses to selected quotes:

1.You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government.” First the writer tells us to obey evil laws, but then mentions martyrs. They never would have been martyred had they not broken the law by being Christians.

2. Then he asks, “Did (Paul) call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above…” The truth is, Paul did all of the above. “Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out” (Acts 16:37).

3. And finally, the zinger—the heresy that has sidelined the Body of Christ in the hour when we are most needed: “The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.” Totally untrue. William Wilberforce was a Christian who used his faith in Jesus to abolish slavery in England. In fact, believers throughout history have created child labor laws, health regulations, and have exposed injustice, and corruption. It is safe to say that Christians are more responsible for influencing government, bringing about reform by forcing laws to be changed, and standing up for justice, than any other group in history.

So how did this writer get it so wrong? By doing what so many do. Isolating one set of verses, taking them out of context, and arriving at a conclusion that looks holy, but is in fact, pure and simple fear.

Let’s look at the verses that have been violated:

“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore, you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor (Romans 13:1-7).

It seems to say that we are to honor government in every form, right? Wrong. To demonstrate what Paul is saying I offer this example. Say some parents leave the house, and leave the oldest child in charge. The child is given strict instructions not to open the door for anyone, except for a postal messenger whom they are expecting to deliver an important package that day.

The parents tell the child, “He will have blonde hair. He is wearing blue jeans and a white shirt. Don’t let anyone else in.” So later, a man with black hair, a blue shirt, and black slacks knocks on the door claiming to be the messenger with the package. Do they let him in? Of course not.

Lost in all the quoting of this verse on submission to government is the most important part: The description of the ruling authority. The Bible tells us what they are wearing! Look at the description:

1.They are not a terror to good works. Any government that terrorizes the innocent is not of God. How can you say that Hitler was God’s will for Germany? Hitler and other tyrants are in fact the ones being warned that there were God appointed governments who would destroy them: “But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.”  That is why the just powers of the world rose up and destroyed the Nazis.

2. They praise good works. Authorities that are endorsed by God do not hate or oppose Christian activity. They are the ones who—even if they are not Christian themselves—do not insult soul winning or fight the work of God. They are the cops, teachers, politicians who are glad that children are getting out of gangs and off of drugs.

3. You must be subject for the sake of conscience. When it becomes tricky, is when government is a mixture of right and wrong. Jesus said of the Pharisees, “Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, but do not do” (Matthew 23:3).

Do what they say, but don’t partake of their hypocrisy. Watch them for that moment when they cross the line and come between you and your God.  Just as our conscience should drive us to obey the law, we should also know when our conscience tells us not to obey an evil law.

Here’s when Peter reached that tipping point, speaking to those very same Pharisees: “So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:18-20).

And again, in Acts 5:29, “Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.””

God not only does not endorse evil government: He will have no part in it. “Can a corrupt throne be allied with you—a throne that brings on misery by its decrees? The wicked band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death” (Psalm 94:20). There is your answer. A corrupt throne (government) cannot be allied with God.

The Amplified Bible (1974) puts it this way: “Can a throne of destruction be allied with You, one which frames and devises mischief by decree [under the sacred name of law]?”  How much clearer can it be than this?  It proves that laws can be evil and cannot be allied with God.

In fact, evil laws are the worst form of sin. They provide legitimacy to evil.  Matthew Henry said, “Iniquity is daring enough even when human laws are against it, which often prove too weak to give an effectual check to it; but how insolent, how mischievous, is it when it is backed by a law! Iniquity is not the better, but much the worse, for being enacted by law; nor will it excuse those that practice it to say that they did but do as they were bidden.”

Notice how at the end, Henry says we can’t use the excuse that we were just obeying the law.  That is why Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

The laws being created by Democrats, using the coronavirus as an excuse, are far worse than the virus itself because, unlike the virus, those new laws become permanent.  It is time for the church to wake up and take action, beginning with voting the evildoers out of office and quit calling our submission a godly thing, when it is just a cowardly thing.

“WHO WILL RISE UP FOR ME AGAINST THE EVILDOERS? WHO WILL STAND UP FOR ME AGAINST THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY?” (Psalm 94:16).

This Will Turn

While leftists are saying, “Christianity is done in America,”  I say, “At the end of this lockdown, an amazing ingathering of young souls will begin.” To try to prove me wrong, the Left drags out the usual suspects—trends and statistics (including the coronavirus) — in an attempt to validate their argument.

My first response is, “Are you done? Because your arguments just fell like an egg from a tall chicken.” Not only is Christianity not finished in America, but you and all your “woke folk” have inadvertently sown the seeds for the next Christian resurgence. Your ideology has carved out a Jesus-shaped crater in the young souls of our nation.

The wreckage caused by the bankrupt values of the God-haters is everywhere. It was always there, but many didn’t have the time to see it.  The Left has drained the beauty out of childhood, romance, laughter, innocence, friendship, and nature. Those who are stuck at home, now have the time to sit and think about why in the world they ever believed such inane ideas, ideas that have led to such emptiness.

 

Three verses from the Bible have ignited in me. They have to do with outcomes in the midst of impossible crises, such as Luke 21:12-15 where Jesus said, “But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and rulers for My name’s sake. But this will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony. Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will answer; for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.”

The ‘occasion for testimony’ is upon America. We have never seen the nation shut down like this. We have never seen idols toppled in such a sudden and complete way.

While it is very good news for some in the church, it is terrible news for others. God is separating two groups in the church. He will not have carnal voices in this next testimony. He will give voice to chosen ones and grant them astounding defenses of the truth, and power to speak with devastating effectiveness.

He is chasing the hirelings out of His presence. Right now, all over the world believers are headed in vastly opposite directions. Their emotions are opposite. Their viewpoints are opposite. Their destinations are opposite. Some are headed toward a visitation of God. Others are being herded out of the way to make room for a new and glorious work of the Holy Spirit.

Flashy, fleshly preachers were repeatedly warned—but now it is too late. This virus was the deadline. How could they remain carnal and self-important in the face of this crisis? How could they still resist God even in this calamity?

Well known leaders, who at this hour bask in popularity, are totally oblivious to their impending demotion. God is about to sideline them.

On the other hand, totally unknown churches and leaders are about to rise. God will have a witness! It will be pure. It will be free of carnal agendas. It will demonstrate signs and wonders from a holy and loving innocence, and these witnesses will not take the glory.

Remember when I told you this. The coronavirus epidemic will give way to the most explosive opportunity for soul winning in our lifetime. But many believers are going to be left out—receiving in their souls the fruits of their rebellion and the rejection due them for years of resisting the dealings of the Holy Spirit.

Today church buildings lie dormant. Today we wrestle with uncertainty about how long it will last and how bad it will get. But the Holy Spirit bears witness that it will end as suddenly as it came. Many Christians and preachers will emerge with a false sense of security and have no clue as to why they have been demoted.

God has deadlines!  Luke 19:41-42, “Now when Jesus approached and saw the city, He wept over it, saying, “If you had only known on this day, even you, the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes.”

Preachers in America have crossed a deadline, and now God’s next move will be hidden from their eyes.

On the other hand, there are humble servants who are grieving over America. It looks impossible, but this will turn! It looks like the door is closing, but this will turn! It seems that our enemies are too powerful and too great to ever allow a true revival, but this will turn!

Believers who will soon be revealed to be secret weapons, are waiting on God at this very moment. Broken hearts are the birthplace of the impossible. Many don’t know what’s happening to them. They can’t explain the birth pangs.

You know who you are. You are not wasting time fretting with vain imaginations. You are following hard after God. You feel strange rumblings, as deep calls unto deep. What will these Vessels of Fire and Glory look like? They will be irresistible. They will be unstoppable. These vessels will set the stereotype of what a Christian is, on its ear, in America.

What will it be like when it starts to turn and God-starved people meet God-filled people?  Matthew 11:12 says, “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.”

This will turn out for you, as an occasion for testimony!

IF DEMOCRATS CAMPAIGN THAT TRUMP WRECKED THE ECONOMY

I am not writing this to be negative. I am writing this to provoke you because you have the power to make a difference. There is still time to prevent the destruction of America. There is still time for you to do the right thing.

But sometimes doing the right thing means you have to come to a conclusion that is disturbing, repugnant, and perhaps too horrible to admit. To do the right thing means that you have to face truth no matter how terrifying and enraging it may be. Then and only then, will we muster the right level of outrage and take the drastic action that is justified.

I thought I understood evil. Then one day I reread the following verses recorded in Mark 3:5-6: “And when (Jesus) had looked around at them with anger, being grieved by the hardness of their hearts, He said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored as whole as the other. Then the Pharisees went out and immediately plotted with the Herodians against Him, how they might destroy Him.”

Consider this: the Pharisees are watching a withered hand transformed back to normal right in front of their eyes. Such a wonder will overwhelm the heart of even blatant sinners, but to the special evil that resides in the heart of men in a position of political power, it was cause for rage and murder.

I am not comparing Trump to Jesus, but I am comparing certain Democrat leaders to those Pharisees. Nothing is wonderful enough to change their mind about Trump, nor is anything too evil to use to destroy him. Destroying the hopes of millions of people and even causing unnecessary deaths is not off limits to them.

100,000 small businesses have been permanently destroyed. We will never know the number of lives that have been lost to despair and addiction. The Pharisees destroyed people in the name of serving God. In true pharisaic form, Democrat leaders claim they are doing “good” with their criminal use of panic and despotism.

Gavin Newsom showed us what Democrat evil looks like: “Grandstanding Calif. Gov. Gavin Newsom reportedly wants to close a 200-resident veterans nursing home in a budget-cutting measure while at the same time enthusiastically handing out about $75 million in direct cash benefits to illegal aliens living in the state.” –Business and Politics Review.

If, as we approach November, we see Democrats campaigning with claims that Trump wrecked the economy—it just proves they are wrecking the economy to get Trump. That is a simple fact. And it is the modus operandi of Democrat leaders.

One of the high crimes Jesus levelled at the Pharisees was hypocrisy. Simply stated, they did the very thing they accused others of doing. Democrat leaders take hypocrisy to another level. Not only do they accuse others of their own sins—they do it to innocent people.

We are trying to wrap our minds around the fact that Obama ran a spy ring at the FBI, but rather than face their wicked lawlessness, they accuse others of spying. General Michael Flynn has been proven innocent, but his ordeal continues because a judge loyal to Obama is persecuting him illegally.

Hillary Clinton bought and paid for a dossier from the Russians and she and her cohorts used it first to try and stop Trump’s election. Having failed at that, they moved on to using it in the bogus Mueller investigation and finally in the hopelessly disgraceful impeachment attempt.

I wonder if Adam Schiff could watch Jesus miraculously heal a withered hand and still go after Him if it threatened his Party? Schiff knew Biden is guilty of withholding money from the Ukraine in order to pressure them into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company Joe’s son, Hunter, was making huge profits from. That was precisely the false charge they brought against Trump when they impeached him.

Now we come to the most hideous behavior of all. Are Democrats deliberately keeping the economy closed: destroying businesses, small churches, and people’s lives, just to create a campaign talking point to use against Trump in the upcoming election?

Georgia and Florida reopened amid a firestorm of criticism from Democrat leaders. They faked outrage. They were only concerned that their cover had been blown—that there would be no new outbreak, and it would expose their ‘monkey science.’

The clear evidence that we can open safely has not stopped Democrat governors from crushing people. The State of Oregon sent Child Protective Services to the home of a woman who opened her hair salon in order to survive. They forced her out of the room in order to interrogate her 6-year-old daughter.

If Democrats campaign on the lie that Trump wrecked the economy—it proves they are wrecking the economy to get Trump. That is a simple fact. But you can’t wait to act until they do this.

It is now beyond question what our duty is. The Democrat Party must be stopped. Their crimes against the Constitution, our way of life, our freedoms of religion and free speech are all being trampled. There was a time when ministers should not talk the way I am talking now. But now is the time when ministers should only be talking the way I am talking now.

Unless we obey God and rally every believer in America to the unquestioned cause of righteousness and freedom, a moral winter is coming to America that will make the coronavirus look like a mild cold.

Psalm 94:16: “Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?”

A NEW WARNING AND PROMISE FROM THE LORD

From about November of 2019, until February of 2020, many were prophesying what 2020 would be like. 90% of the predictions tagged 2020 as a year of amazing prosperity, breakthrough, and revival.

You may remember how—based on a decades-old ‘prophetic word’—national revival was supposed to come on the heels of the Kansas City Chiefs winning the Super Bowl.  Instead of revival, we got a pandemic. Instead of prosperity, we got massive unemployment and the fastest destruction of an economy in history. Instead of a breakthrough, we got a lockdown. Instead of churches thriving, they were totally empty. Instead of righteousness flowing like a river, the worst demonstrations since the 1960s tore our nation apart, after a heinous murder ignited rage, fear, and deep division.

Here is an excerpt from a blog I wrote on November 9th, 2019, entitled THE OUTWARDLY SUCCESSFUL CHURCH ISN’T STOPPING OUR IMPENDING NATIONAL DISASTER: “Why does the American Church think she is successful?  Her outward success hasn’t even tapped the brakes of our impending national disaster.  I wish I could say we had stopped the flood of filth and addiction.  I’d even be happy if I could say we had slowed the flood.  But no, as the flood rises, we take pride in how well we can keep people safe and dry in artificial arks of glass and stainless steel.  We celebrate things that are utterly irrelevant in the disaster that is even now at the door.” You can read the rest of that blog here:

https://wp.me/p1vrzp-6JF

The first cases of coronavirus began only weeks after the Holy Spirit ordered me to predict national disaster. But those who rebuked the church, including myself, were rejected for not joining the chorus with those who were singing the praises of 2020.

Don’t you wish you had heard something from your pulpit that could have warned and prepared you for what we are facing right now? Those voices were drowned out by a spirit in the Body of Christ that—even after all we have been through for 6 months now—still wants to hear a giddy message of false hope.

Jeremiah called out the false prophets who refused to believe Babylon would invade Judah. They were prophesying that Babylon, not Judah, would fall, and in less than two years, but Jeremiah declared that Judah would fall and enter a 70 year-long captivity. That captivity came, and some of those false prophets were taken to Babylon. And you know what?  Fantastically, even in chains, they insisted on saying that it would soon be over. They continued to lie, even in the face of the absolute proof they were liars.

Even now, preachers in America are saying the exact same thing as last year—as if none of this has happened, and no real danger lies ahead. Once again, you are being set up for another crushing disappointment, because you are listening to men who are hopelessly addicted to a false message.

Read Jeremiah 38 and you will see something chilling. There was one clear difference between the true prophet and the false ones: The false prophets never called for repentance. That is how you can tell the real from the false preachers right now—if they are not proclaiming national repentance, run the other way!

I said all that, because once again, I must make a prediction and issue a warning.  Some will be offended by what I am going to say next: The worst part of the storm is almost upon us. In the next few weeks, you will see a tidal wave of rioting, persecution, censorship, and crime. The evil that is going to be spoken and done against Christians, President Trump, the forces of law and order, and any patriot who dares to take a stand for America, will be unlike anything you have seen so far. Hell itself will be unleashed, in order to crush freedom in our nation.

You will hear virulent things said against our President that will horrify and sicken you. You will hear politicians call for legislation that sounds like it came out of North Korea. You will hear loud voices even begin to worship abortions and perversion. You will see an election vandalized, with massive censorship of any pro-Trump ad. You will see leftist news personalities calling for his imprisonment and even his death.  All pretense of decency will be cast aside.

The next few weeks will embody 2 Timothy 3:1-5, “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!”

The church should have been called to massive prayer meetings, seeking mercy and repentance. Instead, we are seeing pastors calling for ‘cute’ ways for churches to handle the shutdown. Christian leaders will continue to remain neutral and passive, when they should be rallying the Body of Christ.

Here is my warning from the Lord: The church must be the first to turn from her wicked ways. The church must preach repentance, the Cross, the Blood and passionately seek a fresh out-pouring of the Holy Spirit. Preachers must cast off all pretense of trying to save their jobs. They must preach with such force that they pierce hearts and drive home the gravity of the situation, and clearly proclaim what the true stakes of this moment are.

 

Someone asked me if the Lord had shown me that Trump would win a second term. I told them, “No, He has not.” I told them what I am telling you now, that the single greatest threat to Trump’s reelection is the hesitancy of preachers to rally their people to vote. It boggles my mind that this is still possible! But it is symptomatic of the deep deception that characterizes this hour.

Just as dark and impossible as it may seem, just as vile as this moment appears, there is still a miracle waiting in the wings. Our God—our awesome God—our God Who comes out of nowhere, is sending a clear and undeniable signal to a remnant. They have already been tried in the fire, and now they will come forth like gold. Look for nobodies to get battlefield promotions and raise up armies of righteousness.

At this moment Satan is trembling with fear at the thought of their appearing. At this hour the devil shivers before the inevitable return of new lions—warriors with tongues of fire, healing in their hands and irresistible words of Life. They are coming. Oh, yes, they are!

As Nehemiah recalled: “Therefore You delivered them into the hand of their oppressors who oppressed them, but when they cried to You in the time of their distress, You heard from heaven, and according to Your great compassion You gave them deliverers who delivered them from the hand of their oppressors.” (Nehemiah 9:27)

Let the lukewarm believer collapse before God in conviction. Let the hidden warrior take heart that God is about to force the situation in your favor. The difference between true vessels of God and hirelings is about to become extremely clear and undeniable.

I beseech you, before God: heed this warning and believe the promises!

From Sesame Street back to Azusa Street

The cry of my heart is that men and women of God, who are cooped up, will get fed up. My hope is that vessels of God, who are locked down, will get fired up. I am asking God to ruin them for anything other than His work!

I am hoping that God will hit them with a combination punch.  A straight jab that will awaken anger over the spirit of death and despair that is suffocating the greatest nation on earth. Followed by a right hook that will disgust them into admitting they have been living in fear of what people think.

I want you to see Satan yelling, “Yo’ Mamma!” right at you. Pastors, I want you to burn all your books on church growth, and start praying against the sorry guru who suckered you into using their putrefying programs.

Get sick! Not with a virus, but with yourself. Sick for letting boards and deacons scare you. Sick because you continually fretted over who might get offended. Sick because you stare out at the parking lot, counting cars, instead of looking up to heaven. And sick of the sermons that seem as if they were designed for Big Bird and the Cookie Monster.

Yeah, I’ll say it: My cry is that when the doors of Spirit-filled churches reopen, they will leave Sesame Street and run back to Azusa Street.

Nothing in this blog is radical. Nothing in this blog is negative or divisive. The problem with me is that I have been around too long and have seen too much. There is nothing more dangerous than an individual who understands why they are a Pentecostal. There is no one more unstoppable than the person who has been baptized in the Holy Spirit and who has experienced the tongues of fire.

I want you to rage against limp-wristed preaching, fog machines, romantic lighting, and that atmosphere that’s about as life giving as the waiting room at a DMV.

A scourge from hell has attacked our nation! That is why we need heroes! Thank God for the first responders, the courageous nurses, and the doctors. Thank God for our President who has been valiantly battling the swamp creatures.  But it is time for a new group of heroes to appear: Christians who are full of the fire of God!

The testimony of Azusa Street needs to hit us like a Mack Truck.  William Seymour, who oversaw the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at the turn of the century, had none of our advantages, but we have none of his results. The glory and presence of God turned a rundown hall into a magnet for the entire world.  Today, that movement is 650 million strong.

Modern experts have tried to teach us how to trick people into coming to church, but at Azusa Street, they stampeded to the altar, drawn by God alone—without any tricks. Brother Seymour began the most powerful outpouring of the Holy Spirit in modern history in an old rented building that was once a stable. It was so primitive that many times he would pray with his head hidden between two wooden milk crates that served as his pulpit. Then heaven would burst open and the presence of God would fall on those present. It wasn’t a choreographed meeting. It wasn’t a slick presentation. It was raw glory.

Don’t be the fool who says modern society is too sophisticated for Pentecost. “The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ…” (2 Corinthians 10:4,5 AMPLIFIED, 1974 ed.)

I love that translation! Destroying sophisticated arguments! Nothing new has come down the pike that can withstand the conviction of the Holy Spirit. The devil can’t form a weapon that will prosper against a truly Spirit-filled army.

Oh God, let it be! Let frustration build like magma in a volcano! Let the silliness of our human designs task us. Let our old sermon notes torture us. Awaken, O Lord, the greatest sleeping giant in the world—The American Spirit-filled church of Jesus Christ!

HOW CAN YOU CALL YOURSELF A CHRISTIAN?

We had a pandemic that should have ignited the fear of God in most Christians. But it didn’t. We’ve had undeniable evidence of the severe cognitive decline in Joe Biden: the man can’t finish a sentence, he is rude, angry, gives unwanted attention to females, looks confused, and has embraced all that is evil in the Democrat platform. Yet there are many so-called Christians who will vote for him.

There is growing evidence that China is behind this pandemic and has tried to destroy us. But Joe Biden has made a career of giving in to the Chinese government, and is the absolute worst choice for a leader who will stand up against them.

Biden is so desperate to become President that he has vowed to veer left and rally those who support the agendas of Planned Parenthood, the LGBTQ activists, and socialism. He has even made a deal with the other devil, Bernie Sanders.

Joe Biden is the consort of Barack Obama, who has consistently been the most hostile President in history toward the Bible.

How can you call yourself a Christian and vote for Joe Biden? He is weak. He is declining. He will serve at the behest of the worst enemies of both America and the church. He will unravel everything of value you claim to stand for.

Then there are the “Christians” who think that by either not voting, or by voting for a third candidate they are innocent and are ‘voting their conscience.’

It is clear what Joe Biden will do—his every move will be anti-Christian—so how can you believe you are innocent and not do everything in your power to stop him?  The only way to stop Biden is to vote for Trump. No one else, no matter how saintly you esteem them to be, has any chance of winning. And if Trump loses, America will belong to the enemies of God.

Back to the issue of cognitive decline. Below are his actual words as he addressed the coronavirus. Teleprompter and all.

This pandemic has shut down the American economy. How can you call yourself a Christian and vote to elect a cure that is worse than the disease? Should the economy be in the hands of Biden?

Many liberal governors will do all they can to keep churches shut down long after the virus has subsided. How can you call yourself a Christian and allow an enemy of the church and an ally to these governors to put the finishing touches on an already dangerous situation?

Come on—ask yourself, do you seriously believe Biden will be able to rebuild America after all the damage this pandemic has done?  Trump alone possesses the skill and the will to bring us back from disaster. China fears Donald Trump but their mouth waters at the thought of a Biden presidency and a Democrat-run Congress.

Here is my question: How can they call themselves Christians and do such an anti-Christian act as voting for Biden? The answer is simple: modern preaching. Modern preaching has produced the most Biblically illiterate generation of church-goers ever.

Because of modern preaching, Christians don’t know what they believe beyond their false vision of a loving, tolerant and generous God who caters to their every whim. A God to overlook their carnal lifestyle.

Because of modern preaching a moral choice is not as important as ‘feeling loved.’

Because of modern preaching, many who call themselves Christians cannot handle persecution. And this is a critical point. Why? Because the platform that Biden is running on is hatred for Trump. And the hatred of Trump coming from the media and Hollywood makes it uncomfortable for an ambivalent believer to take a stand. They want to be accepted…the same motivation that drives their celebrity pastor. Acceptance!

This corona virus is the warning shot across the bow to a nation that has filled up the cup of iniquity with the wrath of God. So far, many in the church are still drowsy, indifferent and ignorant of the two most important facts that exist in this hour.

1. America must repent or be diminished. We have shoved God away. It grieves God that lost souls go after depravity, but it also grieves God that so-called Christians still don’t get the urgency of this hour and the utter necessity of radical repentance.

2. We must appreciate that Donald Trump is an act of mercy. He is a rough and tumble deliverer. Certainly, many have wished for a smoother, less combative President. The fact is that America, in her sin, has made it necessary for God to use strong medicine. We must appreciate that Trump was sent by God or suffer unspeakable consequences.

“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Ps. 11:3)

The foundations are being destroyed, so how can you call yourself a Christian and vote for Biden?

NO. THERE IS NO VERSE IN THE BIBLE THAT TELLS YOU TO OBEY EVIL GOVERNMENT OR LAWS.

No. There is no verse in the Bible that tells you to obey evil government or laws. If we don’t realize that now, it will soon be too late. I want to prove to you beyond any doubt that the Bible tells us what we must do in the face of wicked government and laws.

First, I want to show you the weak and pathetic heresy that many believers have come to accept as truth. I want you to see the widespread excuse that is being used for submitting when we should disobey.

Here is an example.  Someone commented to me:

“Out of curiosity, how do you justify your argument against obeying the government when you read Romans 13:1-7. The government Paul was talking about was even more oppressive than anything we can imagine. You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government. And, what was Paul’s response? Did he call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above, he said, in the face of a brutal government, to obey. He didn’t say obey if your rights are recognized, he said obey. The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.”

 

This defense of submission to evil government is riddled with error and falsehoods. Here are my responses to selected quotes:

1.You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government.” First the writer tells us to obey evil laws, but then mentions martyrs. They never would have been martyred had they not broken the law by being Christians.

2. Then he asks, “Did (Paul) call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above…” The truth is, Paul did all of the above. “Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out” (Acts 16:37).

3. And finally, the zinger—the heresy that has sidelined the Body of Christ in the hour when we are most needed: “The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.” Totally untrue. William Wilberforce was a Christian who used his faith in Jesus to abolish slavery in England. In fact, believers throughout history have created child labor laws, health regulations, and have exposed injustice, and corruption. It is safe to say that Christians are more responsible for influencing government, bringing about reform by forcing laws to be changed, and standing up for justice, than any other group in history.

So how did this writer get it so wrong? By doing what so many do. Isolating one set of verses, taking them out of context, and arriving at a conclusion that looks holy, but is in fact, pure and simple fear.

Let’s look at the verses that have been violated:

“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore, you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor (Romans 13:1-7).

It seems to say that we are to honor government in every form, right? Wrong. To demonstrate what Paul is saying I offer this example. Say some parents leave the house, and leave the oldest child in charge. The child is given strict instructions not to open the door for anyone, except for a postal messenger whom they are expecting to deliver an important package that day.

The parents tell the child, “He will have blonde hair. He is wearing blue jeans and a white shirt. Don’t let anyone else in.” So later, a man with black hair, a blue shirt, and black slacks knocks on the door claiming to be the messenger with the package. Do they let him in? Of course not.

Lost in all the quoting of this verse on submission to government is the most important part: The description of the ruling authority. The Bible tells us what they are wearing! Look at the description:

1.They are not a terror to good works. Any government that terrorizes the innocent is not of God. How can you say that Hitler was God’s will for Germany? Hitler and other tyrants are in fact the ones being warned that there were God appointed governments who would destroy them: “But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.”  That is why the just powers of the world rose up and destroyed the Nazis.

2. They praise good works. Authorities that are endorsed by God do not hate or oppose Christian activity. They are the ones who—even if they are not Christian themselves—do not insult soul winning or fight the work of God. They are the cops, teachers, politicians who are glad that children are getting out of gangs and off of drugs.

3. You must be subject for the sake of conscience. When it becomes tricky, is when government is a mixture of right and wrong. Jesus said of the Pharisees, “Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, but do not do” (Matthew 23:3).

Do what they say, but don’t partake of their hypocrisy. Watch them for that moment when they cross the line and come between you and your God.  Just as our conscience should drive us to obey the law, we should also know when our conscience tells us not to obey an evil law.

Here’s when Peter reached that tipping point, speaking to those very same Pharisees: “So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:18-20).

And again, in Acts 5:29, “Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.””

God not only does not endorse evil government: He will have no part in it. “Can a corrupt throne be allied with you—a throne that brings on misery by its decrees? The wicked band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death” (Psalm 94:20). There is your answer. A corrupt throne (government) cannot be allied with God.

The Amplified Bible (1974) puts it this way: “Can a throne of destruction be allied with You, one which frames and devises mischief by decree [under the sacred name of law]?”  How much clearer can it be than this?  It proves that laws can be evil and cannot be allied with God.

In fact, evil laws are the worst form of sin. They provide legitimacy to evil.  Matthew Henry said, “Iniquity is daring enough even when human laws are against it, which often prove too weak to give an effectual check to it; but how insolent, how mischievous, is it when it is backed by a law! Iniquity is not the better, but much the worse, for being enacted by law; nor will it excuse those that practice it to say that they did but do as they were bidden.”

Notice how at the end, Henry says we can’t use the excuse that we were just obeying the law.  That is why Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

The laws being created by Democrats, using the coronavirus as an excuse, are far worse than the virus itself because, unlike the virus, those new laws become permanent.  It is time for the church to wake up and take action, beginning with voting the evildoers out of office and quit calling our submission a godly thing, when it is just a cowardly thing.

“WHO WILL RISE UP FOR ME AGAINST THE EVILDOERS? WHO WILL STAND UP FOR ME AGAINST THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY?” (Psalm 94:16).

THEY TRIED TO WARN US


 

Oral Roberts heard the voice of God in a vision speaking to the lukewarm American church. God told him,

“THERE IS A WASTING OF MY POWER, THERE IS A FAILURE TO GRASP THE END TIME. AND THE CHURCH: THEY ARE COMING TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY MORNING, MOSTLY FOR THEMSELVES. AND THE PREACHERS, FOR THE MOST PART, ARE NOT REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH.

“THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE LITTLE GROUP THAT IS THERE. AND THEY SING THEIR SONGS AND THEY GET UP AND PREACH.  WHEN 9-11 STRUCK, THERE WAS A FEAR THAT CAME INTO THE HEARTS OF EVEN MY PEOPLE OF THE CHURCH, AND OF THE PEOPLE OUTSIDE THE CHURCH. AND MILLIONS, THE FOLLOWING SUNDAY OR TWO, RUSHED TO GO TO CHURCH.

“WHEN THOSE PLANES OF THE TERRORISTS STRUCK THE TWIN TOWERS IN NEW YORK CITY, AND THEY GRADUALLY CAME TUMBLING DOWN, IT WAS SOMETHING BIGGER THAN PEOPLE HAD EVER SEEN, BUT IT IS NOTHING IN COMPARISON TO WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE SECOND COMING OF MY SON.

“MY CHURCH WAS NOT PREPARED TO DEAL WITH THAT, AND PEOPLE CAME TO CHURCH AND THEN NOTHING MUCH HAPPENED, AND THEY DROPPED BACK.  AND MANY OF THEM WENT BACK TO THEIR BARS…

“BUT THE PREACHERS WERE NOT PREPARED, AND MOST OF THEM DIDN’T EVEN PREACH ON IT, AND DID NOT EVEN TALK ABOUT IT BEING THE SIGN OF SOMETHING THAT IS COMING−HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TIMES BIGGER.”

“NOW, THERE’S GOT TO BE PREACHING WITH FIRE IN THE BELLY!  THERE HAS GOT TO BE AN ANOINTING OF THE HOLY GHOST. MY CHURCH HAS TO WAKE UP−BECAUSE OF WHAT I’M REVEALING IN THIS SIGN, THAT “EVERY” EYE IS GOING TO SEE, “EVERY” EAR IS GOING TO HEAR. THEY’LL SEE THIS THING. THEY WILL NOT NECESSARILY KNOW WHAT IT IS, BUT IT IS A WAKE UP CALL ABOUT THE SECOND COMING OF MY SON!”

David Wilkerson saw a coming storm of persecution and violence.  He saw devastation in New York with fire and massive death and rampant immorality. Few believed him, because at that time unemployment was less than 5%, and because Disney had just taken over the seedy areas of Times Square and had made it family oriented.  All of his words have come to pass.

In 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.

“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!””

However, David also said that God gives advance warning and provides protection:

 “Moreover, God is faithful to speak in times of prosperity, just before the fury of His judgment strikes. While the storm clouds are still gathering, He raises up prophetic voices all over the land. And, according to Scripture, whenever a sinful nation was prosperous and at peace, God told His prophets to warn that the good times soon would end: “…the Lord hath cried by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity…” (Zechariah 7:7).

“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’ll retain your joy!” and  “…Thou shalt make me full of joy with Thy countenance” (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. Yet often in Biblical history, when He gave these warnings, the people refused to listen: “He sent prophets to them, to bring them again unto the Lord; and they testified against them, but they would not give ear.” (2 Chronicles 24:19)

“Almost always, God’s people grew weary of these warnings. This was especially true if a prophet cried out about a coming storm over a period of years: the society ignored the warning and just continued to be prosperous and at peace. Over time, the people simply switched off the prophet’s voice. They simply didn’t want to hear it anymore.”

 Steve Hill saw a vision of a coming storm that had the potential to destroy millions of Christians because of false teachings that are rampant throughout the church.

“The Lord began to speak. I trembled. The fresh, new snow represented the false teaching that is steadily falling on the ears of the body of Christ. It has been, and is, a heavy snowfall. The skiers represented believers and non-believers, trusting the resort for a safe and memorable experience. As Christians, we have been warned to be sober and vigilant (1 Peter 5:8). However, the present ‘awe-inspiring’ teachings have lulled many into a deeper sleep.

“The layers upon layers of snow have been steadily covering the solid traditional Truth of Christ. The truth is that foolish teaching in these last days will become so fashionable even the most dedicated believer could become deceived (Matt. 24:24). It’s happening before our eyes. One spiritual leader said the other day: “You guys are old-fashioned ‘holiness,’ we are modern day ‘grace.’ You live in bondage, while we can do anything we want.”

“Pastors and teachers worldwide have succumbed to heretical teachings including universal reconciliation, the deification of man, challenging the validity of the Word of God− including His judgments, and even lifting any boundaries, claiming His amazing grace is actually “amazing freedom.” The message seems to be, “You are free to live according to your own desires.” Sound familiar? “They had no king and did what was right in their own eyes.” (Judges 17:6) These popular self-proclaimed ministers of the gospel are covering the “slopes” and will be held accountable for the spiritual death of millions.”

 

 America’s Last Call 

 Kenneth Hagin:

“I looked at the scroll again, and again I looked to see what I had read about. I saw the skyline of a large city. Looking closer, I saw the skyscrapers were burned-out hulls. Portions of the city lay in ruins. It was not written that just one city would be destroyed, burned, and in ruins, but that there would be many such cities.

“The scroll was written in the first person, and seemed as if Jesus Himself were speaking. I read, “America is receiving her last call. Some nations already have received their last call, and never will receive another.”

“Then, in larger print it said, “THE TIME OF THE END OF ALL THINGS IS AT HAND.” This statement was repeated four or five times. Jesus also said this was the last great revival. He went on to say, “All the gifts of the Spirit will be in operation in the Church in these last days, and the Church will do greater things than even the Early Church did. It will have greater power, signs, and wonders than were recorded in the Acts of the Apostles.””

 Smith Wigglesworth:

“We have to see that these days have to come, before the Lord can come. There has to be a falling away.  I want to speak to you very exactly. All the people which are pressing into and getting ready for this glorious attained place, where they shall not be found naked, where they shall be blameless, where they shall be immovable, where they shall be purified by the power of the Word of God, have within them a consciousness of the very presence of God within, changing their very nature, preparing them for a greater thing, and causing them to be ready for translation.

“This is the day of purifying. This is the day of holiness. This is the day of separation. This is the day of waking. O God, let us wake today! Let the inner spirit wake into consciousness that God is calling us.

“There are in the world two classes of believers. There are believers that are disobedient, (or I ought to say there are children that are saved by the power of God, but are disobedient children), and there are children that are, just the same, saved by the power of God, who all the time are longing to be more obedient.

“Up to this present time the Lord’s word is for us, “Hitherto, ye have asked nothing.” Surely you people, who have been asking great things from God for a long time, would be amazed if you entered into it with clear knowledge that it is the Master, it is Jesus, Who has such knowledge of the mightiness of the power of the Father, of the joint union with Him, that nothing is impossible for you to ask. Surely it is He alone Who could say “Hitherto, you have asked nothing.”

 SUMMARY

 Oral Roberts was warning us about people who go to church only for themselves, and of preachers who care nothing about reaching the world for Christ.   How can we deny that this is true?  We have reached the point where so many Christians are unteachable and Pastors are oblivious to the Great Commission.

 David Wilkerson was trying to teach us that as God’s remnant in a storm of deception, violence, and persecution, we can be safe. We can even thrive.

 Steve Hill placed a great deal of emphasis on the massive amount of false teaching that would rob the church of her preparation, blind her to the right choices she should make, and leave her vulnerable so that she is destroyed along with the world. But he also provided the hope that repentance and true submission to God would provide a shelter from the storm.

 Kenneth Hagin was warning us that America had a final call.  I believe we are at that call right now.  He saw buildings burning and cities inundated by the judgment of God. However, he also offered great hope that the people of God would do even greater things than the apostles did in the Book of Acts.

 Smith Wigglesworth emphasized the need for purifying, holiness, and separation in the church. He urged us to wake up, ask for the mighty power of God, and then nothing would be impossible to us.

Now, listen with all of your heart, with all of your might, and with zero distractions. This storm will damage every compromised carnal Christian.   Jesus told us that the foolish man who built his house on the sand was someone who had heard the words of Christ but would not do them. And the house fell, and great was its fall. That is the key right now. All of these warnings are for Christians.

So what do we do to prepare for this storm?  What steps do we take to obey the words of warning that come to us first from the Bible, and then from God’s prophets?   Distilling the common threads that run through these five men’s prophecies, I found these steps:

1. Stop following preachers that are weakening you, using you, and deny that there is a storm coming. Get out of the churches that look like nightclubs. Get away from the seductive teaching that denies hell, the blood of Christ, the inerrancy of the Bible, and the urgency of the Great Commission.  Don’t follow their teaching.  For heaven’s sake, do not give them any money.   Do not fellowship with believers who condone drunkenness or immorality.   This compromised Christianity is precisely the house built on the sand that the storm will destroy.

2. Press into God. The common thread that runs through the messages of these five prophets is a call to intimacy with God. The result of that intimacy would be a special grace and power to live through anything that is coming in these last days.

Each one of them referenced a secret place in God that was available to us, and would create a force field of peace and joy and boldness that would deflect every lie, every threat, and every attack.  All of these men spoke of a level of power that would be revealed to the last generation of Christians on the earth.  They describe a time of great extremes where wickedness and righteousness would ripen together.

Those who choose to press into God will embody a faith that cannot be shaken by any threat or headline.  They will have a presence of God continually upon their life.  Not just some of the time, but all of the time.   Disasters will go on around them, and regardless of how cataclysmic the events in the world become, they will be conveyed safely into the presence of God.

3. Enter the era of ‘extravagant asking.’ Wigglesworth’s reference to ‘extravagant asking’ is a key to the final revival in the history of the world. He quoted Jesus, Who said “Hitherto, you have asked nothing, ask what you will and My Father will give it to you, that your joy may be full.” All five of these prophets hold out a hope for America.   They are trying to sober us up so that we can ask God to spare our nation. We do not have to have fires, riots, and God’s judgment upon America, even though they are well deserved.

We can ask and receive resources beyond anything we’ve ever seen before.  We can preach with devastating conviction that can pierce hearts, and break the chains of the most heinous sins of our time.  We can ask and receive signs and wonders that exceed what the apostles saw.   We can watch God fill the coffers of anointed ministries beyond anything we can imagine or have ever seen before.

Finally: Truly God’s word is this, “I set before you life and death.” You can walk away from this message and continue the denial that pervades the church, but I promise you, this storm is coming. You can choose life−not just any life−but the greatest life that God has offered any generation!

Vessels of Fire and Glory

Vessels of Fire and Glory is Mario’s newest book. It reached number one on Amazon among all Spirit-filled books. John Kilpatrick who led the Pensacola Revival said this after he read Vessels of Fire and Glory: “As I read the manuscript for Mario Murillo’s new book, Vessels of Fire and Glory, I said to myself, “Finally!” Mario has measured the church and the nation in this season and did not hold anything back. His honesty is like the sun rising inside a dark cave. This release is a paradox—it is sobering and refreshing; it is symptoms and the cure. I believe this revivalist has penned a treatise that should be in the hands of all who lead the work of God.”

 Edgewise

Here is a book about the end times with a totally different approach. It does not focus on how the world will end but on how to live as the curtain comes down on humanity. Powerful, practical, and encouraging.

Critical Mass

Critical Mass is the best-selling book Mario Murillo has ever written. It has been acclaimed as a classic on how to pray for, surrender to, and sustain revival. It is required reading in many colleges and training centers.

IF DEMOCRATS CAMPAIGN THAT TRUMP WRECKED THE ECONOMY

I am not writing this to be negative. I am writing this to provoke you because you have the power to make a difference. There is still time to prevent the destruction of America. There is still time for you to do the right thing.

But sometimes doing the right thing means you have to come to a conclusion that is disturbing, repugnant, and perhaps too horrible to admit. To do the right thing means that you have to face truth no matter how terrifying and enraging it may be. Then and only then, will we muster the right level of outrage and take the drastic action that is justified.

I thought I understood evil. Then one day I reread the following verses recorded in Mark 3:5-6: “And when (Jesus) had looked around at them with anger, being grieved by the hardness of their hearts, He said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored as whole as the other. Then the Pharisees went out and immediately plotted with the Herodians against Him, how they might destroy Him.”

Consider this: the Pharisees are watching a withered hand transformed back to normal right in front of their eyes. Such a wonder will overwhelm the heart of even blatant sinners, but to the special evil that resides in the heart of men in a position of political power, it was cause for rage and murder.

I am not comparing Trump to Jesus, but I am comparing certain Democrat leaders to those Pharisees. Nothing is wonderful enough to change their mind about Trump, nor is anything too evil to use to destroy him. Destroying the hopes of millions of people and even causing unnecessary deaths is not off limits to them.

100,000 small businesses have been permanently destroyed. We will never know the number of lives that have been lost to despair and addiction. The Pharisees destroyed people in the name of serving God. In true pharisaic form, Democrat leaders claim they are doing “good” with their criminal use of panic and despotism.

Gavin Newsom showed us what Democrat evil looks like: “Grandstanding Calif. Gov. Gavin Newsom reportedly wants to close a 200-resident veterans nursing home in a budget-cutting measure while at the same time enthusiastically handing out about $75 million in direct cash benefits to illegal aliens living in the state.” –Business and Politics Review.

If, as we approach November, we see Democrats campaigning with claims that Trump wrecked the economy—it just proves they are wrecking the economy to get Trump. That is a simple fact. And it is the modus operandi of Democrat leaders.

One of the high crimes Jesus levelled at the Pharisees was hypocrisy. Simply stated, they did the very thing they accused others of doing. Democrat leaders take hypocrisy to another level. Not only do they accuse others of their own sins—they do it to innocent people.

We are trying to wrap our minds around the fact that Obama ran a spy ring at the FBI, but rather than face their wicked lawlessness, they accuse others of spying. General Michael Flynn has been proven innocent, but his ordeal continues because a judge loyal to Obama is persecuting him illegally.

Hillary Clinton bought and paid for a dossier from the Russians and she and her cohorts used it first to try and stop Trump’s election. Having failed at that, they moved on to using it in the bogus Mueller investigation and finally in the hopelessly disgraceful impeachment attempt.

I wonder if Adam Schiff could watch Jesus miraculously heal a withered hand and still go after Him if it threatened his Party? Schiff knew Biden is guilty of withholding money from the Ukraine in order to pressure them into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company Joe’s son, Hunter, was making huge profits from. That was precisely the false charge they brought against Trump when they impeached him.

Now we come to the most hideous behavior of all. Are Democrats deliberately keeping the economy closed: destroying businesses, small churches, and people’s lives, just to create a campaign talking point to use against Trump in the upcoming election?

Georgia and Florida reopened amid a firestorm of criticism from Democrat leaders. They faked outrage. They were only concerned that their cover had been blown—that there would be no new outbreak, and it would expose their ‘monkey science.’

The clear evidence that we can open safely has not stopped Democrat governors from crushing people. The State of Oregon sent Child Protective Services to the home of a woman who opened her hair salon in order to survive. They forced her out of the room in order to interrogate her 6-year-old daughter.

If Democrats campaign on the lie that Trump wrecked the economy—it proves they are wrecking the economy to get Trump. That is a simple fact. But you can’t wait to act until they do this.

It is now beyond question what our duty is. The Democrat Party must be stopped. Their crimes against the Constitution, our way of life, our freedoms of religion and free speech are all being trampled. There was a time when ministers should not talk the way I am talking now. But now is the time when ministers should only be talking the way I am talking now.

Unless we obey God and rally every believer in America to the unquestioned cause of righteousness and freedom, a moral winter is coming to America that will make the coronavirus look like a mild cold.

Psalm 94:16: “Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?”

 

DO NOT THROW TOMORROW AWAY

Can you recall any of the superficial sermons that were preached by celebrity preachers just a few weeks ago? If so, you must realize that preaching that stuff now would come off as banal and inappropriate enough to cause you to cringe. Back then, under the influence of that type of preaching, many believed life was just a bowl of cherries, and their toughest test was wondering how long it would take God to refill the bowl. Now they are believing for toilet paper.

Those warm and fuzzy sermonettes became useless for life during a pandemic.

Many are jobless. Many have loved ones who are sick. Their children are home from school and falling behind. The eateries, stores, and coffee shops they took for granted are now either closed or will only hand you stuff through the door. And the churches they used to attend are worshiping online.

They stare out the window at a strange new world with no idea how bad it’s going to get, and if or when things will return to normal.  Coronavirus has destroyed their theological innocence.

Many are not only done with those motivational pep talks, they have thrown the baby out with the bath water. They are turning away from their faith and trust in a loving God.

The other extreme this outbreak has led to is the number of believers who now hate the faith-prosperity message. They hate it so much that they are rooting for this virus to cause that message to become extinct. And they are every bit as dangerous as the New Age celebrity pastors.

The Holy Spirit has given me a warning to pass on to every child of God. You had a dream. You had a vision. You were just about to start college, start a business, get married, start a family, write a book, build a building, get a patent on a new invention, or launch out in vibrant ministry for Christ. Then the world seemed to come to an end.

The Bible, and your God-given vision and dream are not beholden to human circumstances. The Book that contains the accounts of people who stopped plagues, raised the dead, and blinded armies isn’t going to cut you any slack. DO NOT THROW TOMORROW AWAY.

Now, the present reality is screaming at you that none of those dreams will ever come true. They say you must downgrade your hopes and dreams to a “new normal.” You must adapt to a shadow existence. That is a lethal lie from the pit of hell! I want this blog to be the electrode paddles that will kick-start your visionary heart once again.

GOD IS COMMANDING YOU—DO NOT THROW TOMORROW AWAY!

Do you honestly think that God didn’t know this was coming when He gave you that vision, idea, commission, or calling?  God didn’t just sit down and say, “Oh well, My child, I guess I won’t be able to do what I called you to do. I never factored in this virus thing.”

Furthermore, just because some have abused the truths of Faith and Provision, that does not change the truth about Faith and Provision. Romans 3:3 asks a burning question, “What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God?”

Giving up on faith because of the virus is like losing faith in your gun because a burglar got in your house. This crisis doesn’t mean our faith doesn’t work—this is what our faith is for!

Kenneth Hagin did not get his revelation of the faith message during an economic boom. He got it in the depths of the Great Depression. Hagin saw faith intervene in a time of grinding poverty.

Alexander Dowie didn’t launch his healing ministry when divine healing was all the rage. He did it after the bubonic plague killed 40 members of his church. After he launched his healing ministry, no one else died in his church, and an international ministry was born.

I remember when circumstances and outward appearances caused a great evangelist I knew to back off from an important part of his message. Over dinner he told me, “Mario, the poverty was so great in the Philippines that I couldn’t preach prosperity.” I corrected him by asking, “Would you also not preach healing because they were too sick?”

Don’t you dare throw tomorrow away! Joshua 3:5 is your verse: “Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will work wonders among you.”

What does ‘sanctify’ mean? It means clean up your act! This is not a time to be stunned by events. It’s time to train, prepare, pray, study and write the vision plainly so you can run with it. Fan the fading embers back into a roaring flame.

This crisis will go away. What will never go away is the regret of what you might have done for God if you hadn’t thrown it away. DO NOT THROW AWAY TOMORROW!
