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According to Amos, the central altar of God had been replaced by rogue altars.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.”
A strange thing has happened to Democrats. They suddenly discovered adultery is a sin. Not only that, they now believe it is grounds for a president to be impeached.
Because he is a billboard for liberal hypocrisy, Bill Clinton is scurrying away hoping you won’t see him. He remembers when Democrats defended him for ongoing adultery (not something that happened 12 years ago.) He remembers when the New York Times screamed that it was no one’s business when consenting adults have sex.
He remembers when (as recently as 2016) feminists thought his rapes were okay. Wonkette feminist writer Rebecca Schoenkopf thinks Bill Clinton probably raped Juanita Broaddrick back in 1978 — but that doesn’t make him a bad person.
In a post published in response to Broaddrick’s recent interview about the alleged attack, Schoenkopf explained Bill probably just didn’t know that forcing himself upon a woman was a no-no — because apparently no one told men not to rape 30 years ago.
“I can absolutely see Bill Clinton doing this (then, not now) and not even thinking of it as rape, but thinking of it as dominant, alpha sex,” Schoenkopf writes. “I can see a LOT of men doing that during that time period, before we started telling them in the ’80s, ‘hey, that is rape, do not do that.’ I can see YOUR NICE GRANDPA doing that, back then.”
How did Democrats go from one extreme to another? How did they go from anything goes to nothing goes—and, there is no statute of limitations on what might have gone on. How did they go from saying rape is okay for Clinton, to falsely accusing Trump of rape? Just when you thought they could not get any richer…
Bill Clinton opposed illegal immigration. Bill Clinton made citizenship a question on the census questionnaire. Democrats howl and sue against all of this now. And now…
The all-time double standard bearers—the supreme practitioners of hypocrisy, call Christians hypocrites for backing Trump.
Let me assure you of something. If Trump said, he was a Christ follower, and he was caught cheating on his wife as president, I would be first in line to rebuke the immorality. That has not happened. There’s as much evidence for that as there is for Russian collusion.
I don’t believe Christians who support Trump will give him a pass if he behaves like, say…Bill Clinton. Let me prove it to you in a way that some will hate me for: look at what happened in Alabama. Even if you believe that Judge Roy Moore was railroaded—and there is evidence of that—many Christians could not vote for him because of the moral shadow cast on him.
Again, the real hypocrites gave a pass to president Bill Clinton who defiled the office while in office, but believe Trump should be impeached for what he did years before he was in office.

WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama paid $112,214 in federal income taxes in 2012 on adjusted gross income of $608,611, an effective rate of 18.4%, the White House said Friday.
The first family’s income declined from the $789,674 in adjusted gross income they reported in 2011. That year they paid total federal taxes of $162,074, an effective rate of 20.5%. Their 2012 income continues a steep decline from 2010 when they reported $1.7 million in adjusted gross income, the bulk of which was royalties from sales from books written by Mr. Obama.
The Obamas paid $29,450 in state income tax to Illinois for 2012.
As in recent years, the Obamas made significant contributions to charity. In 2012, they gave $150,034—or about 24.6% of their adjusted gross income—to 33 different charities. The largest reported gift to charity was $103,871 to the Fisher House Foundation, a group that provides free housing to family members of injured military veterans. The release of the 2012 tax returns comes as the debate over what level of taxes the wealthy should pay shows signs of heating up again as the president makes another push for a “grand bargain” on deficit reduction.

They netted $17,944 of that rental money.
The arrangement under which the vice president charged the Secret Service personnel for staying on his Delaware property was first reported by The Washington Times in 2011.
The 2012 payouts were part of the $385,072 in adjusted gross income the Bidens reported to the IRS in 2012, according to their 2012 tax returns.
They reported paying $87,851 in total federal tax for 2012. The amount was roughly the same as it was the previous two years.
The couple contributed just $7,190 to charity, including $2,400 to the Annual Catholic Appeal for the Diocese of Wilmington, Del., $1,000 to the Westminster Presbyterian Church and $1,000 to the Northern Virginia Community College Education Foundation.
They also donated $2,000 worth of household items to Goodwill and the Ministry of Caring, a Wilmington-based nonprofit serving the poor and homeless.
The Bidens listed donations of clothing, boots, kitchenware, glassware, bicycles, toys, pottery and kitchenware to Goodwill and furniture and exercise equipment to The Ministry of Caring.
