Immediately, Trump fans may be put off by the title. I am not saying don’t love Donald Trump. I love my brother. I pray for him. I am outraged by the vileness of the left toward—not just our president—but his wife and children. We need to extend love and respect to the man.
When I say utilize, I am not speaking of Donald Trump the man—I am speaking of the presidency of Donald Trump. I am talking about seizing this moment when power is being used for the good of the nation, and gives the church new freedom to preach the Gospel.
Utilize means: use, make use of, put to use, employ, avail oneself of, bring/press into service, bring into play, deploy, draw on, exploit, harness. My question to the American church is simple: Are we utilizing his presidency?
The enemies of the church utilized Obama’s time in power to greatly expand their operations…and most notably, create a widespread cultural shaming of Christians. Under Obama there was outright hostility toward the church’s freedom of speech and religion. Schools shut down Christians groups. Prayer was wiped out in many public events. An amazing amount was done that goes against our basic beliefs.
Some believers dislike Trump because they believe he limits the Gospel. In fact, the opposite may be true. Military chaplains can again talk about Christ, Christian clubs can again meet on campus, permits for Christian events are easier to obtain, and even social media has begun to remove the muzzle on Christians.
The newfound hatred for the Gospel blossomed under Obama not Trump. The railing you hearing right now is because the open season on the church is over.
But what are we as Christians doing with the fact that jobs are coming back—are we investing in soul winning? Now that we have more freedom to witness are we reaching out? Now that the oppressive restraints are being successfully challenged in court, and the tide is turning toward more religious freedom, are we harnessing the moment?
On the other hand, we must not idolize Trump. He is not our provider—God is. We cannot devolve into a cult following where Trump can do no wrong. We can’t be entertained by his gotcha tweets (a personal weakness of mine) and bravado. We have to see the big picture. Respect him, admire him but never forget the urgency of the time. You have work to do.
True prophets speak truth to power. If our president reverses course and becomes an enemy of the Gospel I will openly oppose him. How can I not?
At best, Trump will be in office another 7 years. That’s not a long time. In fact, it could only be 3 more years. In that time, we must discredit the virus the nation contracted from God-hating leftist elites. If we do not, then brace yourself for the most vicious leftist backlash we have ever known.
The Christians who detest Trump and those who idolize him share this danger—missing the hour of our visitation. You can miss it by being so prideful you can’t accept the fact that God is working through Trump. Or, you can miss it by sitting around being enamored by his every move instead of getting to work.
You can sum up the books of Ezra and Nehemiah very simply: God has opened an amazing door to restore Israel but too many Israelites couldn’t see it. Jesus said, “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.”-John 9:4.
The therapist walked to the blackboard and drew a horizontal straight line. He asked the patient “what does that make you think of?” “Sex,” he replied. Then the therapist drew a vertical straight line and asked again, “what does this make you think of?” Again, the patient answers, “sex.” Finally, the therapist draws a circle and asks, “okay what about now?” Once again, the answer was sex.
“I don’t need to go any further” said the therapist, “you’re obsessed with sex.” Incensed, the patient replies, “Me?” “You’re the one drawing all the dirty pictures!”
It was interesting how many thought I was drawing dirty pictures—claiming I said any Christian who disagrees with Trump hates him. I never said that.
It was equally remarkable to see how angry they got—how they took it so personally.
Some of the comments were hilarious. “I am a believer, I don’t hate him. Even though he is a pathological liar, and a wolf.” Other Christians cited the audio of Trump from 12 years ago as proof that he is evil. Not even considering he might have changed. Again, they add the disclaimer, “but I don’t hate him.”
But my favorite criticisms came from those who said:
-This is why young people won’t listen to us.
-The article is divisive to the Body of Christ.
-Stay out of politics. No politician or party can be used of God.
Thank God they’re wrong about young people. I hold nothing back and it just makes more of them show up. I give them direct appeals and they come to Jesus. It’s a canard to say youth don’t want to hear this.
What is divisive to one looks like God separating the sheep and the goats to another. A core of believers is rising that is finished with the lukewarm church. Lukewarm-ness is a good thing to be divided from.
If you think God can’t work through a political leader think again. If you think politics has no place in spiritual warfare think again. When the hard left took possession of the Democratic Party, the first thing they did was throw the church out.
Who changed traditional marriage? Who champions—not only abortion—late-term abortion? Who puts Christian bakers out of business? Who is ignores MS-13 because they are immigrants? Who espouses bans on prayer, conservative speakers on campus, confiscation of guns, makes “F—Trump! a mantra” a statement, one Democratic columnist said, “was worthy of the Pulitzer Prize.”
We have never faced such a hate-filled mob of media elites, Hollywood hypocrites, and God-hating extremists—hell-bent on crushing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in America.
Stop living in the past. The day of civil discourse from the left is long gone. Journalism is dead.
I know saying this will make heads explode: but in all this madness of globalism, and George Soros-funded tyranny, Trump is a momentary reprieve from God—an imperfect vessel notwithstanding. He is a stop-gap buying time for the church to act. And it’s disastrous for the church to ignore it. If nothing else, he defeated Hillary Clinton.
Never mind the dinky stuff. Look at the policies and the laws he is undoing and the ones he prevents—laws and policies that would muzzle the church and will build a godless nation for your children and grandchildren. Trump is a firewall.
When you say that God can’t use politicians you are saying only the devil can.
God’s catalysts can come in strange packages…ranging from the bizarre, to the coarse. Samson, Saul of Tarsus, and even General Patton come to mind. Often, they offended sensibilities, barged in where others feared to go.
The devil has the American church groggy on the goodness of God without the needed balance of the holiness of God—holiness that leads to authority—authority to rise and tear down cultural strongholds of Satan through moral awakening.
Trumps is buying us time. Seizing the time? Well, that’s our job.
Dear Christian Save Yourself from the Democratic Party. Yes, you heard me right—get out while you can.
The modern Democratic Party is the greatest threat to the free exercise of religion in America’s history. In their attempt to limit religious freedom, they are attacking the foundation of America’s goodness.
Never has a major party sought to shove the practice and influence of religion out of the public square like today’s Democrats.
The Democratic Party’s last shred of credibility died during Trump’s State of the Union address. While 75% of Americans approved of Trump’s speech, the scowling, aging waxworks of the DP’s leadership sat like barnacles on a corroding ship.
They could not even cheer for our military veterans. They frowned at the American Flag and the National Anthem. Their bitter faces found no compassion for a couple whose daughters were murdered by illegal alien members of the MS-13 gang.
Do a snap comparison.
The Republican platform: The Trump/Republican platform has created the lowest jobless rate for blacks in history. The Stock Market has set more records in less time than ever. Trump’s tax break has Disney, Home Depot, and many other corporations giving out thousand dollar bonuses to entire work forces. (Nancy Pelosi called this crumbs.)
Money is coming back to America from overseas just as Trump predicted. Even at the hostile World Economic Summit in Davos, Switzerland, European companies said they would invest in America.
The Democratic Platform: Hate Trump.
(Oh yeah…and hate Christians). They are deranged to the point of thinking, speaking, breathing, and spewing nothing but Trump hate.
Their breathtaking arrogance alone, should make you abandon them—like nuclear waste! They take their base completely for granted. They live in an alternate reality. They believe they can say or do anything and their base will blindly follow them.
If you are a believer get out. You should get out because they told you to get out. They pulled the welcome mat out from under you, years ago. Democrats have screamed WE DON’T WANT YOU at Christians for decades. They deem the Bible to be a hateful, obsolete tome. They find everything you believe to be racist, sexist, homophobic, and every other phobia.
A Christian Democrat in California makes as much sense as a screen door on a submarine. The Democratic Party is the reason Christians are fired in Silicon Valley for sharing their faith. Sacramento is a seething nest of anti-Christian sentiment.
Whatever pulse of decency they had as a national party stopped last night in that hallowed hall. Their deranged hearts and minds were on full display for the world to see: they hate everything you hold dear.
For the love of God—and, I mean that literally—save yourself.
Maybe I shouldn’t be telling you this…it might just help your failing agenda. The fact is, your obsessions are shrinking your audience. There’s no vision, inspiration, or solutions in your rants.
Let’s begin with racism. It’s simple: blaming the white man for everything ignores reality. Many factors create poverty in the inner city. Blaming the white male, all of the time, distracts from the hard choices anyone—especially minorities—need to make to build a future. Anger, self-pity, and denial, lead to disaster.
You have no workable solutions for young minorities. You call them victims and tell them they need to get mad. Okay, now they feel like victims and they’re mad what’s next? (crickets).
Kanye West woke up to this fact. So did Lil Wayne and a growing number of artists in the hip hop community. So much so, that Obama begged major artists to stop more big names from coming over to Kanye’s view of personal responsibility. You even call people of color who support Trump racists…against their own race!
But people know real racism when they see it. White privilege is a racist term and fair-minded people of all colors wince every time you say it.
A leftist celebrity can say anything they want and keep their job: Rosanne said despicable things, but so did Joy Reid, Bill Maher, Jimmy Kimmel, Keith Olbermann, the women of the view, and many others on the left. There’s no bottom to the venom they can spew and keep their jobs. To millions of viewers this is not just a double standard…it is tyranny.
The Trump derangement syndrome: You have gotten pathetically hilarious. The entire platform for the coming midterm elections of the Democratic party is “hate Trump, and say bad things about him!”
92% of all news reporting is negative toward President Trump. This breathtaking bias of the news media is not lost on Americans.
They remember how you festooned Obama’s inaction with spin and made it look like he was actually getting things done. Now, you take even the most amazing wins by Trump—and there have been a lot of them—and redact them into failure. Only Trump haters enjoy that. Only haters can possibly consider it journalism. The rest of us know it for what it is: Fake news.
Your hatred of Trump is more important to you than finding real solutions to problems Americans face every day. Simply put…you got nothing. Nothing to offer, and nothing to rally around. You are so obsessed with hate you can’t hear the sound of voters leaving the room.
You’re obsessed with illegal immigrants. Americans believe you care more for illegal immigrants than you care for Americans. And you gratuitously lie to protect them. Voters are not stupid. Check this:
-You accused Trump of calling illegal immigrants “animals.” You knew all the while he was only referring to the vicious MS-13 gang members. Ironically, a member of this gang recently convicted of murder and rape recently was named “Animal.”
-Embarrassment for New York Times. New York Times Magazine editor-in-chief Jake Silverstein incorrectly shared Obama-era pictures of children sleeping in enclosed cages to take a swipe at the Trump administration – and that was only one of several Twitter stumbles by anti-Trump public figures over the holiday weekend.
There you have it. Your “if I want your opinion I will give it to you, and if you disagree you’re racist” approach is wearing thin.
Many pundits are predicting a “blue wave” in this November’s midterms, with Democrats possibly gaining a majority in the House and the Senate.
Those predictions, however, might be a little premature, according to Ben Shapiro. Shapiro points out that Democrats’ lead in the generic ballot has shrunk from approximately 13 points to just three.
He said that’s because Democrats don’t have a message or an agenda other than attacking President Trump and pushing “intersectional identity politics.”
Yeah your obsessions are shrinking your audience for all these reasons and one more…PRAYER.
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.”
Comey and Mueller are the tip of the iceberg. They are small fish in a much bigger tank. Before we get to that, here’s a quick refresher on what brought us to this point:
Comey breaks the law to save Hillary. Realizing his cover is blown—at the last minute—he reopens the investigation. Trump wins. Comey, Mueller and the deep state—who worked to prevent Trump’s election—pivot to run Trump out of office.
Comey is fired. Both sides agreed he needed to be fired until Trump did it. Comey takes the next step in the game plan. He leaks lies about Trump to the media so that the prechosen Mueller—his friend, and fellow Trump hater—gets in as special prosecutor. The needed witch hunt begins. The Russian collusion fairy tales lives on without accountability. This soap opera is wearing thin on Americans.
The multi-headed monster brainwashes a majority of millennials to believe the values we have honored for thousands of years suddenly are racist, sexist, and must be eradicated.
Mobs scream at conservatives. Professors invent micro-aggressions, cultural appropriation, and safe places. Suddenly, victims are everywhere and statutes must be torn down, careers destroyed, insane boycotts enforced, and every crisis must be seized to advance the lie.
They doctor research to create pseudo-sciences about gender, weather, and equality. Borders are destroyed to fatten the voter rolls of the left. Because the end justifies the means, the collateral damage doesn’t matter. Only, now, this cynical viewpoint is losing its hold.
This is war. They don’t have to tell the truth, they can ruin lives with lies, they can even justify the murder of innocent Americans. This too is becoming outrageous to many who were on the fence.
Social media, news media, and the Democratic Party are only some of the arms of this monster.
The goal to wipe out Judeo-Christian influence in America is now painfully clear to more Americans. The left is desperate to remove the last firewall against their revolution. Marriage, parental rights, guns, and civil discourse all must go or they have no hope of winning.
But things are not going according to their plan. Something unexpected has happened. They are forced to expose their true colors and their true target before they were ready. Satan is overplaying his hand. Conservatives and Christians are no longer the only ones who are disgusted.
Here is an example: Jimmy Kimmel asked Roseanne Barr, who now supports Trump, why she had changed. She said, “I haven’t changed, it’s all of you who have gone wacko left.” Oops there it is.
A city worker walks into a Motorcycle shop and fines it for flying military flags. A veteran who was shot three times in combat protested. The city worker looked at the veteran and said, “you did nothing for our country.” The video went viral and the city totally backed down and rejected the worker.
Another thing that wasn’t supposed to happen was a creative writing professor at California State University at Fresno who said this about Barbara Bush right after her death:
“Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal,” When people were outraged she said, “this is what it’s like to be an Arab American Muslim American woman with some clout online expressing an opinion. Look at the racists going crazy in my mentions right now,” she tweeted.
The writer taunted those attacking her, said she was a tenured professor who makes $100,000 a year. “I will never be fired,” she tweeted. The university said, “oh yes we can.” I don’t believe this woman meant to melt down and manifest this demon. I believe this extremism is a sign that evil is being driven to extremes.
The left quickly disavowed her but it’s too late. The all too common hatred of the left is out of the bag. The backlash against her was swift and overwhelming.
We who are filled with the Holy Spirit have a unique advantage and responsibility. We understand demonic activity. The entire strategy against our freedom is demonic. These cracks in the armor of the monster are a sign of answered prayer. It shows us that our stand against the powers of darkness is working.
The masters of the left don’t want you to realize why Trump is still so popular. And why Obama, Hillary Clinton, Jerry Brown, and CNN look more and more crazy every day.
We are seeking God for revival. That is forcing the left to be more extreme and obvious than they want to be. I am not saying this is going to be an easy battle or that it won’t get worse. What I am saying is this rush to extremism is a sign we can’t ignore.
Time for us to come into unity. Time for us to increase our prayers. Time to expect a gigantic implosion of the war against our freedom. The war is against us…but if God be for us who can be against us?
