California is now beyond words. The insanity coming out of their state government boggles the mind and it can be totally disheartening to the believers who live here.
It is never safe to make sweeping statements or try to gauge the mood of all Californians. No matter how hard you try, you will generalize. But no one can deny that California is pagan, addicted, digitally distracted, angry, skeptical, depressed, and demonically oppressed.
California has for decades been paganized by a media tsunami of filth, the tyranny of secular progressives, and the silence of the Shepherds.
-Poverty is spreading rapidly there and many are victimized by the greatest income inequality in America. California is now dead last among the 50 states.
-California is the magnet that is pulling the popular votes of fifteen states and the District of Columbia into the Nation Popular Vote Interstate Compact. This movement is an attempt to make an end-run around the Constitutional Electoral College. The purpose of the NPVC is to make the Left-wing politics of the largest population centers the law of the land, and disenfranchise the smaller states and rural communities.
-Californians are over-medicated by misguided doctors and laser-focused drug dealers.
-Californians are bitterly divided by politics. There are the large blue cities which are dominated by Socialist-Democrat politicians and there are the smaller rural communities that are bright red, Republican, pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, who are disgusted by the insane laws pouring out of their state Legislature.
Take a look at some of the demonic insanity taking place in California:
-California Senate Passes Resolution Telling Pastors to Embrace LGBTQ Beliefs. Not content with drag queen story time in public libraries and forced instruction on gay lifestyles in public schools, legislators are going even further and violating the First Amendment by making it a crime for the clergy to state from the pulpit what the Bible clearly says, that God will punish all sexual sin.
–CA Lawmakers Pass Bill Allowing ‘Free’ Chemical Abortions For College Students Students for Life of America (SFLA) President Kristan Hawkins said,” California legislators are recklessly experimenting with students’ lives and health by advancing a plan to force school health centers to become abortion vendors, pushing chemical abortion pills to force an intentional miscarriage. These Toilet Bowl Abortions would create havoc on campuses, as girls are sent to their dorm bathrooms to bleed and pass an aborted infant in a toilet, without medical supervision or assistance,” Hawkins added.”
-California has decided to effectively separate their state from the rest of America, declaring themselves to be a sanctuary for illegal aliens, protecting them from ICE raids.
-The prison system is a revolving door for dangerous criminals and pedophiles. Currently, there are 100,000 sex offenders registered in the state. This means that 1 in 400 Californians are on the list, living near schools, and mostly unmonitored. California passed a bill that will go into effect in 2021 that will allow most sex offenders to petition to be removed from registries, as long as they have not committed another serious or violent felony or sex crime, allowing them to go undetected and unsupervised.
-California is anti-Second Amendment. They have banned nearly every firearm and any magazine over 10 rounds, blocked citizens from obtaining carry permits, prosecuted those who have defended their families, and added an expensive background check that is required when anyone buys ammunition.
-Worst of all, many feel no hope for the future and are taking their own lives in record numbers. In short, California is in a condition that is beyond words.
-Many more Californians than you realize are saddened by the general defeatism coming from Sacramento. They are fed up with the fake news media, and appalled at the demented teaching being employed by a sick university system.
While that description sounds like I cannot find much good in Californians the opposite is the case. There is much good left here. In fact, I believe this state conceals a vast number of warriors of faith, generosity, and courage.
When I say California is beyond words, I mean California can no longer be reached by mere words. We must have something new…or, something so old it is new.
What do we do now? There is a clue in something Billy Graham once said. When a reporter accused him of setting the Church back 50 years, Billy said, “I was trying to set it back 2,000 years!” In the third decade of the first century A.D., the world lived in a similar swampland of despair, perversion and anger. Christianity emerged from that morass. But how did she do it?
The church verified the resurrection of Christ with signs, wonders, and miracles. The church infused the gospel with their infectious joy, their irresistible love for one another, and their golden service to the poor and the forgotten of society. These things provided the Christian clout. This is why Saint Francis—for whom San Francisco is named, by the way—ministered to the poor and operated in the gifts of divine healing, said, “By all means preach the Gospel, and if necessary, use words.”
What Californians need is what I call The Blatant Attempt. The Blatant Attempt is drawing a line in the sand that alerts the public and defies Satan. It consists of four clear steps.
1. A highly public and powerful invitation:We have been guilty of asking people to attend meetings and conferences that are not compelling and do not stir the heart. Moreover, we have been afraid to make that invitation a matter of public knowledge. We must be brutally honest as to exactly what the purpose of the meeting is: to encounter the living God, the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
2. Thus, we must invite them to encounter the power of God in California. We must spell out that God cares for people and has healing power for those who suffer. Think about it! Don’t you believe that when people brought the lame, the blind and the lepers to Christ there must have been a conversation about what could happen if they came to the event! That kind of expectation is a must if The Blatant Attempt is to be effective.
3. We must alter the service to meet the challenge. Nothing is worse than selfish Christians. Dismantling and rebuilding our meetings so that they are an event where compassionate Christians lead those who are sick and hurting to a miracle. It should not be another tired event where over-fed, bored saints are further lulled to sleep. If we can still cling to ‘business as usual’ in this dark and desperate hour, it proves how misguided and deceived we truly are. These powerful and anointed new meetings must include fasting and intercession. The format of these new meetings must be based on surrender to the Holy Spirit.
4. We must contend to make revival permanent. When the Glory blasts through, keep going! There should be no return to normal, this should be the new normal. Trust God to give you strategies to host His presence from now on! Maintain the fire, and channel the fire into a sustainable way of life.
This is my exhortation to every ministry in the State. I would love to work with you, but whether we work together or not these truths are for all Spirit-filled leaders in California. But what I have just described to you is what we will continue to do, until the raging river of God’s Glory floods the Central Valley!
P.S. Our tent crusades are a blatant attempt to declare the Gospel that is beyond words. I have an absolute assurance in my spirit that we are about to see the greatest demonstrations of healing power California has ever witnessed!
