The lesson we learn from Trump’s dismantling of Iran’s blackmail is in a simple phrase: Peace through victory.
Look at his critics. They falsely accuse him of making the world more dangerous. The truth is, Obama—with his foreign policy of weakness and capitulation—made the word dangerous.
Obama continually gave things away, got nothing in return, and increased contempt for America.
By refusing to accept nothing less than victory, Trump brought North Korea and South Korea together. Trump offered nothing to North Korea to get this peace.
Arthur Matthews saw the future. It is almost as if he saw Obama. Look at what he wrote and pay special attention to a question he asks the church:
“Old Testament examples of prayer at work portray most dramatically for us the believer’s authority over all the power of God’s enemies. There is a finality that will not be gainsaid in the way the superior strength of alien armies is disposed of as God’s servants.
This finality is not seen in the political bargaining that characterizes our day. Compromises are made, peace treaties are signed, and the peacemakers move to other danger spots; but the fighting still goes on. Are we allowing our disillusionment with the world’s acclaimed peacemakers to influence our thinking on spiritual warfare? Are we really convinced our call is to spiritual welfare and peace through victory?”
Obama’s weak approach is the legacy of liberal thinking. Victory is not possible. The best we can hope for is a tenuous treaty. Nothing is settled. The undercurrent of defeatism is in many liberal policies. Liberalism seeks the half-cure for everything.
Christian leaders need to examine themselves for hypocrisy. While condemning leftist ideology they unwittingly agree to its defeatism.
Have we allowed Obama style defeatism to influence our approach to spiritual warfare?
Let’s look at examples in prayer and revival. We don’t really believe they are forces that can change our world. It shows in what we are saying and doing. We really don’t lead prayer as if it had power to change society. We don’t preach revival because we can’t image our people really being willing to pay the price.
Peace through victory always means calling someone’s bluff. Trump did that to Iran. Christians leaders must learn to do that to Satan. Call his bluff. Tell him he’s the defeated one! Behave like Jesus won on the Cross.
Listen again to Arthur Matthews: “In any situation where Satan dominates and threatens, God looks for a man through whom he may declare war on the enemy. He purposes that through this man Satan be served notice to back up, pack up, and clear out.”
The two greatest enemies of prayer and revival are the preachers who express their unbelief in one of two extremes:
-They are soft on sin because they don’t believe in the power of God to change sinners. Their gospel is diluted down to the level they believe people will accept.
-They preach gloom and doom—not because they see it in the Book of Revelation—but because they can’t imagine a great revival in the last days.
Peace through victory calls the devil’s bluff on the biggest level. It declares that the Earth can still be enveloped by a massive act of God.
By holding to a policy of peace through victory, Trump has already seen results no one could have imagined. It is time for Christian leaders to repent of their defeatism and embrace the power of prayer to make tangible changes in the hearts of men and women and to impact world events.
Once again, Arthur Matthews: “It is the man who prays who exercises supremacy even over international situations. Men are going to have to acknowledge the peace will not be brought through politicians, but through the intercessor who has learned to wage spiritual warfare and wins peace over the principalities and powers in high places.”
Except for a few Republicans with convictions, there really is no difference between Democrats and Republicans in Congress.
You saw Republicans pass an obscene budget—fully funding Planned Parenthood. They gave Democrats almost everything they wanted, punishing Trump in the process. There are Republicans in the deep state. And the deep state is not so deep.
Washington looks like there are two distinct world views colliding. But conservative and liberal are mostly labels for show. There is something deeper going one here.
Why is Trump so hated by both parties? They don’t hate him because of Stormy Daniels, or because they think he is a racist, or because of his tweets. It is a much darker motivation.
God used my devotions and reading of John 11—the story of Lazarus—to fully open my eyes. When this understanding came to me, my burden for our president intensified. I knew I had to write this to you so that we could agree together for his safety and for this evil to be exposed.
See if you see anything illuminating in these verses:
John 11: 45 Then many of the Jews who had come to Mary, and had seen the things Jesus did, believed in Him. 46 But some of them went away to the Pharisees and told them the things Jesus did. 47 Then the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered a council and said, “What shall we do? For this Man works many signs. 48 If we let Him alone like this, everyone will believe in Him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and nation.” Do you see it?
Notice this phrase: “the Romans will come and take away both our place and nation.” Their first concern was for their place, not the nation. That is exactly what is happening in Washington. They are more concerned about keeping their place than helping the nation.
That dear friend, is what both Democrats and Republicans are doing—they are fighting to keep their place. Not just in Congress but at the FBI, IRS and many other power centers. All of these groups wanted Hillary to win, because she was the queen of the swamp.
Right now you have the proof. Jeff Sessions has the power to end the witch hunt against Trump but he won’t. Mueller’s abuse of power could be called into account but he won’t be. Hillary should be in jail. Obama and his cohorts should be indicted. None of it happens because the politicians must keep their place.
Trump wants to do what works and what is best for America regardless of what side it offends and threatens. It’s called pragmatism. What enrages them is that it’s working. He is winning, and winning, and they are sick of his winning.
Once upon a time, a famous preacher and a famous atheist agreed to hold debates across the country. They didn’t tell the audience it was just a money making scheme. They publicly attacked each—took offerings for their causes—and at the end of the night they split the take. That is also what is happening in Washington.
-Barack Obama was given the Nobel Peace Prize for no reason. Now Trump has brought North and South Korea together. Do you think he will get the Nobel Prize for brokering the most amazing peace since Teddy Roosevelt? Never. Not even his own party will campaign for that.
Unemployment is at 3.9%. It is the lowest among blacks and Latinos in recent memory. His approval among likely voters is 51%. Do you think Trump will be praised? Never.
If you as a Christian can’t see the victories Trump is handing the church to have our voices heard, then you are blind. The next miracle is to get our government back and and see true revival. Trump is a bridge to all of that. The hand of God is upon him.
It is time to bombard heaven for the deep state to be exposed. We need to seek God like never before for special protection on Trump, Melania, the children, and the faithful few left in our government. Ask big. Ask now
Ephesians 3: 20 “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
Destroying America is one of Satan’s highest priorities. The thought of a post-American world makes him giddy with delight. He can’t plunge the earth into utter darkness while the United States is a world power. That’s why he’s labored so tediously, and forcefully to bring down our nation.
His great obstacle is the praying church. They stop him dead in his tracks.
His only hope is to fool the the church into defeating itself. Satan has studied the Bible and the church for millennia. He knows our Achilles heel. He finally found the right tactic: bury the doctrine of repentance. He used cheap grace to do it.
The following are two quotes on cheap grace. One is from Joseph Prince and the other is from Detrick Bonhoeffer. They are direct quotes. They reveal a startling contrast.
Joseph Prince said, “His grace is cheapened when you think that He has only forgiven you of your sins up to the time you got saved, and after that point, you have to depend on your confession of sins to be forgiven. God’s forgiveness is not given in installments.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “cheap grace is the grace we bestow on ourselves. Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, Communion without confession…Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate.”
The first is saying we cheapen grace by repenting. The second is saying we cheapen grace by not repenting.
Which one do you believe? I believe Bonhoeffer who—by the Grace of God—faced down Hitler. Actually, there’s no choice…Jesus not only taught us to repent, He taught us to do it daily.
In Luke 11, Jesus said, “when you pray.” How often are we supposed to pray? Everyday. What is in that prayer? : “forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.” That is repentance.
The war on repentance—and the cheap grace that started the war—is vividly portrayed in 1 Corinthians 5. A sin in the church was so outrageous, even the pagans had never heard of it: A man had taken his mother as his wife.
Even though it brought shame on the church, the leaders did not want to correct this man. They declared war on repentance.
Was it because he was a popular personality?
Matthew Henry said, “He might be a man of great eloquence, of deep science, and for this reason very greatly esteemed, and followed, and cried up, by many among them. They were proud that they had such a leader. Instead of mourning for his fall, and their own reproach upon his account, and renouncing him and removing him from the society, they continued to applaud him and pride themselves in him.”
Do you really think the American Church is any less guilty of covering sin in order to protect a celebrity? Who among us has not heard of rampant immorality? Who among us has not seen popular leaders caught in gross sin, given a slap in the wrist and quickly returned to their pulpit? The justification is a mantra that has become so tiresome: “grace covers all of this, I don’t need to repent.”
There are many godly men and women in ministry in America. But there is also a club of leaders who cover for one another’s sins. They trade pulpits, they live in regal splendor, and they protect their people from the rightful demands of God.
Paul was horrified by the wicked behavior of the leaders in Corinth. It had trashed their reputation in the city. Paul was so grieved that he ordered them to turn the man over to Satan for the destruction of his flesh so that his soul might be saved.
Where are the men and women of God today who are horrified by unfettered carnality? Where is the pastor who is responsible for the young man who currently preaches using liberal portions of obscene language boasting of his deliverance from “Evangelical Christianity?”
Paul brought such swift and supernatural correction that it produced godly sorrow. And you know what… he was glad, for their sorrow produced life. In 2 Corinthians 7:9 he said, “Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that your sorrow led to repentance.” How can anyone read that and say we never need to repent?
Their war on repentance is more evil and dangerous than you know. They have disarmed a truth that is central to saving our nation. They have done it to control people and hold on to power that all rightfully belongs to Jesus. It is so dangerous that God’s hand must expose this falsehood. He must bring down strongholds of counterfeit Christianity, and restore biblical authority.
But something good will come of it. Look for nobodies to step up in awesome power like Paul. They will rebuke this insane foolishness and release the soldiers of Christ to true authority and levels of power we have not seen.
Small churches will be chosen to turn the tide. Vessels too humble to image promotion will indeed be promoted.
Nevertheless, God has stopped winking at the war on repentance. He will punish those who kept the church from “turning from their wicked ways.” The sword is even laid at the root. God will not let America die at the hands of those who are fighting to keep us from repentance.
Let’s be honest. The modern church is not exhausting itself on devotion and sacrifice. But you’d sure think so by the way some ministers keep telling them to relax, and quit trying so hard, because Daddy is so pleased with them.
Even when a congregation is a listless, flabby, biblically illiterate, club of moody consumers—preachers will heap on them yet one more message of pampered entitlement. Kind of like handing a diabetic a case of Snickers bars.
It has gotten so bad that Sundays are a celebration of how much God lets you get away with.
They seem so easy going. And why wouldn’t they be, after all the soothing guarantees of God’s unconditional approval. But don’t be fooled. All that veneer of serenity explodes when they come into contact with holiness. They must attack it on sight.
Gently suggest the church could go deeper—call for more prayer meetings—voice concern about inappropriately dressed women—tell them you don’t want to party with them, and they will scream, “YOU HAVE A RELIGIOUS SPIRIT!”
What was once normal discipleship, is now legalistic. Anything that dampens their festivities is judgmental.
What have we done? We have unleashed a counterfeit liberty. These are not the features of a Spirit-led people. These are the clear symptoms of people with sick souls deceived, and careening toward disaster.
Here is a chilling scripture that speaks to the evil that is twisting the church. Isaiah 59:15 says, “So truth fails, And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him That there was no justice.”
How can it be that vessels chosen to uplift the righteous and equip the saints instead conspired to create a system that rewards carnality and shames holiness. How dare you punish a heart for wanting purity?
The greatest gift God can send a church is a holy child of God. Their heart is revival. They want the fire, glory and power of God to electrify the church. Make them your enemy and you have also made an enemy out of God.
Woe is you if you have ever called holiness a religious spirit. God bless you if you love holiness and understand what a treasure it is. “1 Timothy 6: 6 Now godliness with contentment is great gain.”
I was minding my own business winning gang members, addicts, and college students to Christ. I loved my life. There was no way I wanted to get in this fray. God ordered me to warn the churches of impending disaster. It meant rebuking their violations of scripture, rampant immorality, and political heresy.
No way I wanted to do this. That’s why the life of Amos the prophet was a comfort to me. He said “I’m not a prophet nor the son of a prophet.” He was content in what he was doing. He was a successful herdsman. He was from Judah and the sins of a separate Kingdom didn’t matter to him.
He didn’t care about the conditions in Israel—he was from Judah. God recruited him for the larger war where disaster was looming. He didn’t pick the fight. God brought the fight to Amos.
God is warning us from the book of Amos. Here is where carnal preachers will point out that we don’t need the Old Testament. Yet, Paul said to Timothy, “Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching.” -1 Timothy 4:13. Since there was no New Testament, he could only have meant the Old Testament.
According to Amos, the central altar of God had been replaced by rogue altars. At these altars, pagan superstition mingled with Jewish tradition. They left the Bible out of their worship. God’s warning was clear: “tear them down or I will.”
Today, churches have built rogue altars. Worship leaders prance church stages in stripper outfits. They see nothing wrong with it. They even teach that the body is a beautiful thing and if you have bad thoughts, it’s in your mind. The Bible disagrees. Proverbs 7: 10 Says, “And there a woman met him, With the attire of a harlot, and a crafty heart.” The NIV says, “clothes of a prostitute.” The Word is saying if you wear the uniform, there’s got to be a reason.
We have pastors getting drunk with their staff after church. They began by justifying wine and then moved on to hard liquor. They justify it with grace teaching from beyond the Bible.
Both acts come from the same wickedness—abandoning the Bible. The Bible is gone as a standard. It is no longer regarded as the word of God.
Now, if you ever listened to anything I have ever said then get this: You are watching a moral civil war. A great army has come against us. They are not Russians. They are not Iranian. They are Americans.
They are a confederation of teachers who want to teach your child how to use sex toys—who want to get them to experiment with gender. They are politicians who believe the family must be removed to make way for a socialist society. They are actors, professors, authors, news casters, and a litany of anti-God/anti-American ideals.
They have already systemically changed California into a separate nation, and without a miracle will spread like cancer to the rest of the United States.
Why am I engaged in this fight? Because soul winning in America will be virtually impossible if our freedoms are destroyed.
The ideas and values that created America are under heavy attack. It is not just a physical war it is in the spirit world. Demonic engines drive this agenda. That makes the carnal church and her leaders special villains in the eyes of God.
Scantily clad women on stage and inebriated ministers are no longer just a matter of hypocrisy and carnality…it is blasphemy. When they—who are supposed to be leading the charge against darkness—instead, help advance the darkness, they are traitors. But doing it when it helps destroy our freedoms makes it high treason.
No one is better equipped to break the curse than the church. Conservatives can only do so much. Your favorite commentator can only do so much. Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson can only accomplish a part of what we need.
It is left to the Apostles, Prophets, Teachers, Pastors and Evangelists to take up the mantle for this hour. But, to our great horror…instead of purifying themselves for the battle of their life—instead of seeking holy fire to combat the evil—many are gorging on cheap grace, testing the limits of decency, and falling into dangerous addictions.
Hear the word of the Lord: Amos 3:13 Hear and testify against the house of Jacob,” Says the Lord God, the God of hosts, 14 “That in the day I punish Israel for their transgressions, I will also visit destruction on the altars of Bethel; And the horns of the altar shall be cut off And fall to the ground. 15 I will destroy the winter house along with the summer house; The houses of ivory shall perish, And the great houses shall have an end, Says the Lord.” Can this mean that lavish centers of worship can suddenly go missing? Can we afford to assume they cannot?
Two years later, an earthquake destroyed everything Amos targeted. This does not just apply to California, but to every church in America that has built idolatrous altars.
You are helping destroy the miracle of liberty that came from our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution.
But Isaiah said, “tell the righteous it shall be well with them.” This is the hour for the remnant who love God and seek His face to feel comfort. You will be spared.
In fact, at this moment, heaven is releasing power for miracles, words of prophetic might, and great resources to do the work of God. Those who have kept their integrity–and perhaps labored in obscurity not seeing results—will receive great power and multiplication.
For the rest there remains an ominous warning: In your carnality, you are one the greatest threats to freedom. Again, you are aiding and abetting the destruction of a great miracle—the miracle of liberty that came from our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution.
If the church will not rise up and speak…God will turn even nature against us to spare America. Matthew Henry said something chilling in his commentary on Amos: “If men will not destroy idolatrous altars, God will, and those with them that had them in veneration.”
God is warning us in advance. He wants us to lose our denial. Don’t look at your red state, or your on fire church, and laugh off the threat. It is a real and present. The Holy Spirit is calling for immediate action. He has a plan to stop the California agenda.
Don’t forget, there was a day not long ago when believers in California could not imagine the laws that have just passed here—laws that will lead to banning Bibles and shutting down Christian services.
Can this agenda really spread to the other states of America? It’s already there. Here is how it got there and why it will spread even further:
Teachers unions: The National Education Association is the largest interest group in the United States. That means the roots of radical indoctrination on gender are already in your child’s classroom. This union is waiting for the events in California to unfold and gain wider acceptance before they make their move.
The Democratic Party: This November, you will see these elements of California’s agenda slipped into their political platform.
Universities: The local university your child attends already includes these tenets as a part of education. Students will earn their grades based on agreeing with these values.
Hollywood celebrities: They are getting bolder and bolder about sexual immorality. They are pushing the idea that young people who don’t agree are already labeled intolerant and ignorant.
Social media: In a speech at Google headquarters, LGBT activist Samuel Brinton promised to “figure out” how to stop “pastors…” “I may not be able to find every little camp … every pastor, but I can make it something that is culturally unacceptable,” he said.”
The captains of social media—Bay area based, Twitter, Facebook, Youtube—want this agenda to take over of America. Every American young person has at least one of these accounts.
Lukewarm Churches: They are the biggest reason this radical agenda will spread. The combination of leftist radicals and lukewarm churches created the perfect storm in California. That weather pattern is now all over America now.
There is a glaring example in deep red Texas—Houston is a contradiction of mega churches and radical city government.
Beloved, I don’t care if you are in New York State or Alabama…this hideous agenda is at festering and God wants us to take action now. I believe we can reverse this curse and see nationwide revival. Do these things:
Pray in a way you have never prayed before: It is time to call together a unified company of intercessors. It is time to divert them away from separate issues and focus prayer on a specific target.
I said this before: Stand between heaven and earth as a true intercessor. Invoke the Name above all Names to get to the very Throne of God with your petition. Do what Moses did who raised the rod of Aaron over the battle. When you pray, pray violently, pray exactingly, detailing the damage you want done and where you want it done. By the Spirit, speak directly to evil powers. Call them out and cast them down. Cut their power over America.
Get out of the lukewarm churches. Stop supporting them. Stop kidding yourself that you are there to minister to people. We no longer have that luxury. If you are not hearing the Bible preached, and you are not seeing the Holy Spirit move, get out.
Never mind all of the perks. Consider the word of God which says, “Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud. –Proverbs 16:19
Even more direct are the words of Paul: “having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” -2 Timothy 3:5
I promise you there is a man or woman of God not far from you who is staying true and fighting the battle of their life. They are getting it from both sides: A godless generation and seeker church models that mock their integrity. Join them! Watch the Holy Spirit raise up an army.

Become an informed witness. I have written to you about stolen thunder How Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson reach millions because the expose lies. Follow this link to read the article Stolen Thunder https://wp.me/p1vrzp-5oR
Christians have an even greater capacity to expose lies and oppose bad government. Proverbs 28: 2 says, “Because of the transgression of a land, many are its princes; But by a man of understanding and knowledge Right will be prolonged.”
Even more powerful is this promise from Jesus: Luke 21:13 “But it will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony. 14 Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will answer; 15 for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.”
Someone reading this is not supposed to be a preacher. You are supposed to be in government and in journalism…perhaps even television news. The point is that if Christians would just stop hiding and let the Holy Spirit train them and embolden them we would be able to disrupt Satan’s plans for America.
At the very least, we need to go to our children’s schools armed with an understanding of parental rights and a firm knowledge of our convictions. We can stop radical teachers and politicians if we obey the Holy Spirit.
It is not too late for any state in America…it is not even too late for California. We just need to be bold and obedient. However, we are running out of time.
Finally, I must say what I have said to you before: When God sees someone take up the mighty weapons of God—in the Name of Jesus—and attempt the impossible—God will muster all of the resources of heaven to bring that someone total victory.
