WHY THE FIREPOWER MASTER CLASS CANNOT BE LIVE STREAMED.

Announcement: We have decided not to live-stream the upcoming FIREPOWER Master Class. Not only that, there will be only one authorized video recording. Those in the class will even be required to turn off their phones. No unauthorized recording will be allowed.

Some have told us that they hoped these sessions would be live streamed, in order to save them from having to travel to Fresno, CA. I beg you to reconsider—if traveling distance should be the factor in your decision.

Why am I going to these extremes? The short answer is that we are in a war. America is under the domination of an anti-Christian power-structure. The threats are real. Their tactics are insidious. They want to use anything they can to discredit Christianity.

They are not the only problem. Lukewarm and counterfeit Christians are also a threat to revival. You cannot imagine how some of them are offended by songs about the Blood of Christ. Still others are in their pulpits pressuring believers to just submit quietly to laws that may silence the Church in America permanently.

Even many of the Christians you and I see as harmless, are a potential threat. They are giddy, relying on entertainment and concerts to push back the enemy. They have an immature picture of evil and also of God’s authority. They believe they can flirt with evil. They believe they can fight, but only lightly, and fairly.

God has given me a true profile of the kind of believer it will take to save our freedom and win back this nation. I must have the freedom to speak forcefully—and in some cases bluntly—to the devastating division and ignorance of many believers.

For an example, I deeply respect Franklin Graham, but I believe he is ill-advised to say that we should accept the results of the last election and just pray for the Biden administration. He is a highly visible Christian leader who likely does not understand that to mollify the Left with such policies sets us up to accept fraudulent elections in the future.

Not only that, but there are many bills that have passed the House that are nothing short of evil. These bills, if they ever become law, are designed to destroy our Constitution—the last firewall against Democrat tyranny. That threat can never be adequately met with ‘Christianity-lite’.

I must be free to instruct, rebuke, and inform to the degree that this national crisis demands. That is simply a conversation which is too private to leave open to everyone.

Finally, in-person sessions are especially essential for FIREPOWER. I am going to pray for you. I am going to ask for the fire of God to fall on you. What if there is such a drenching of God, and transforming of those who attend, that we need more than just the normal session to make room for it?

One of my heroes and a personal mentor, was David Wilkerson. He had gatherings with pastors that were legendary for the depth of God’s dealing with those who attended. It is what we need today, as the curtain of freedom is coming down on us. God wants to make warriors who are equipped for this ongoing threat.

I cannot implore you enough to make time for this event. If you simply cannot attend, then be assured that we will review the footage and release what the Holy Spirit says to release.

I urge you—do not hesitate to secure your place at FIREPOWER!

Description:

I am so excited to be able to offer this Master Class on Warfare and FirePower. I have always yearned to train the remnant on firepower—the power that damages the enemy and moves the army of God to meaningful breakthroughs against sickness, and demonic strongholds.

This weekend of classes will skip the fluff. You will find the weapons that tear down strongholds. I am reallly excited to be teaching all the classes with you.

We do not just need an army—we need an army that can defeat the new threats and win a nation back to God.

Again, the class is Free but you must register. Register now. https://warfareandfirepower.eventbrite.com

PROGRAMMING BELIEVERS TO BACKSLIDE

A man of God and his wife who are dear friends of mine were placed in an awkward but all too familiar situation. They were with other spiritual leaders when hard liquor was offered to them. They politely refused and slowly excused themselves from the reception trying hard to mask their shock.

That is not the end of it. A “prophet” later confronted them and told them that they were legalistic for not drinking. He went so far as to say that unless they got in line with the new “revelation” of freedom their church would not grow.

This is no longer a case of just saying drinking is okay. Now they are saying you should be drinking if you want to be in the flow. That “flow” is part of a machinery for growth that compromises in many other areas of Christian life—and programs believers to backslide. The Bible predicted this deception…

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.” Some pastors today are preying on church members who seek to be holy…accusing them of a religious spirit.

Have we really come to the point where believers are making themselves a target by pursuing holiness?  The answer is a loud YES! A machine is churning out converts who are being programmed to backslide. And don’t fool yourself, this machine is in spirit-filled churches…even in so-called revival churches.

Holiness is now rejected and called a religious spirit. Satan rejoices at this because it has created the greatest display of false success in the history of the church. Many churches are now conveyor belts that attract people in but then they rapidly fall off at the end of the belt.

In fact, the ones who fall off may be the fortunate ones. There’s at least a chance that they will crash and burn and come to their senses in true repentance. But woe, to those who are backslidden in church but don’t know it because they are taught, they can never backslide.

The growth we celebrate today is a grand illusion that hides the greatest turnover ratio ever.

Doesn’t this explain why so many believers have been bulldozed and reclaimed by the enemy? Doesn’t this point out the reason the church has no authority to push back against the flood of evil in our nation? How can we field an army of warriors when our system sets them up to fail?  Forgive me but I am about to get passionate about this!

How can it be that the very vessels chosen of God to equip the saints instead conspired to create a system that rewards carnality and shames holiness?

Listen to most sermons today. They give the impression the church has exhausted herself trying to serve God, or that she has overdone sacrifice—that now she needs vast portions of comfort food.  That’s the way it sounds when ministers keep telling them to relax, and quit trying so hard, because Daddy is so pleased with them.

Even after there’s proof that a congregation has become a listless, flabby, biblically illiterate, club of moody consumers—preachers will still heap on them one more message of pampered entitlement.  Forgive me for being crude…but it’s kind of like handing a diabetic a case of Snickers bars.

Sundays are too often a celebration of how much God lets you get away with and soothing guarantees that confuse God’s love versus His approval.

1 John 5:4 says “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.”  There are two things to take away from this promise: the first is that a major goal of the child of God is to overcome the world. That goal is largely missing in modern preaching—preaching that sees the world as a quasi-friend not as a mortal enemy.  Secondly, it shows us the desperately urgent place of faith—faith that overcomes! That is also missing.

We program failure when it is not clear at the moment of conversion that Christ must become lord of their existence. That is an ultimatum that cannot be postponed. Without it, you are lying to the new convert about the power they will have over evil or any hope of growing in faith. You are also robbing them of the joy of the Lord.

Repentance, spiritual warfare, the authority of the believer are all subjects that would protect the child of God and help them to stand against the enemy. But these preachers never get around to these truths because it will stop the influx of people. Think of that!

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.

But the final nail in the coffin of this deception is this: It is utterly unnecessary to compromise to get a crowd. Jesus never had trouble getting a crowd. That is why He focused on changing the crowd. Go ahead and boast about growth but you must do it at the expense of truth—the truth that while churches grow, the nation is dying—and the very people tasked by God to save America are having zero impact.

The greatest gift God can send a church is a holy child of God.  Their heart is for 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.”

Thank God that at this critical hour the Holy Spirit is separating a core to Himself. These are pastors, and regular Christians who are praying to go deeper. They are busy saying to each other, “this side show is not God, there’s more! No way can Satan win if we take our stand on the authority of the cross!”

He is imbuing them with boldness, wisdom, signs and wonders and most of all…a blazing passion for holiness. “Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.” – Hebrews 12:14
