I don’t mention any names in this blog. I wanted you to see—if you get to see—how extreme things have gotten. Censorship is no longer just about what you say, it is about what they think you are saying. Soon they will censor what they think you are thinking. Consider yourself fortunate if this information is not blocked—or if you got to it before it was.
I am about to talk to you villains who are burning down our house. They are using lies and bankrupt ideas to set their fires. I will use another vehicle that is new to me: I am going to direct this blog directly to the guilty. I am going to rebuke them. You may think that is unloving…maybe even unchristian. That hits on why we have lost so many moral battles.
To win them—we were told—we must be nice. We couldn’t have been nicer. We didn’t win them. In fact, our niceness made them hate us more. Love sometimes delivers a “thanks I needed that” message. Occasionally, the truth should hurt…especially when a nation is at stake.
Wicked people have torched the truth and it’s your children’s future that’s on fire. It’s time you realized that something truly dark is looming on the horizon.
Is there hope? There is great hope. In fact, it was at a low ebb of faith like this that the Jesus movement exploded.
BURNING DOWN OUR HOUSE
You doused America with flammable lies. Every room, every stairway, every doorway soaked in combustible falsehoods. Then you struck the match. Now the house is burning down. A five-alarm fire.
Like crazed villagers, you scream “it is for the greater good” as you torch everything in your path. History chases you pleading: “this has never worked, and it will never work.” But do you listen? Reason hunts you down and cries, “you will make the world worse than it was before.” But it doesn’t matter.
You’ll will enforce truth by lying? You’ll conquer hate with what, new hate?
You’re attacking evil? Please explain: After you tell every lie, break every law—and evil not only survives but turns back on you—what truth or law will be left to protect you? What love, justice, and mercy will be left to build that better world?
I hear some teens declare, “My parents are idiots so ban all the guns.” Or, “if I can get an AR 15, what’s to stop me from getting a nuclear weapon?” The entire military maybe? All this money and attention is being thrown at you because you’re a pawn. To them you’re no timeless warrior. To them you’re the flavor of the month. To them you’re 15 minutes are almost up.
Then there’s the older protesters. The revolution is going to usher in the better world? Your claim to be “woke” feels more like a joke. You are flush with hate. Will you magically be fair—with justice for all—once you have the power? Face it, you don’t want to end oppression. You want to be the new oppressor.
You scream “by any means necessary!” But do you know what is necessary? Truth, justice, equality, and prosperity come from God—from honoring His Word. We’ve reaffirmed it for thousands of years. The only time it has ever gone right for America is when we’ve honored these self-evident truths. But, does history matter to a mind high on mythical ideology or pot?
You claim science is on your side. But it is science that refutes you. It is science that knows you falsified your research on gender, weather, and so many things in order to sell your agenda.
Insanity is when you keep doing the same thing over and over again hoping for a new result. Hate is when you keep the same thing over and over again—even though you know it doesn’t work—because it hurts the right people.
You see nothing wrong with censorship. You’re fine with rioters shutting down free speech. You’re okay with sanitizing a religion of hate and twisting the golden words of the Carpenter of Nazareth into hate.
Then there are the sophisticated arsonists. Governors, special counsels, media CEOs, late night comedians, Senators, all spouting the party line in robotic unison. You spew the same mantras. You claim the same sanctimonious ramparts.
“We must make America like California!” Have you tried to educate a Christian child there? Have you tried to run a small business there? Have you tried to eat, sleep, breathe, or find shelter there? Have you tried to get over the murder of your son, or daughter by someone who wasn’t supposed to be there? Why would you wish California on the rest of America?
Next is the fire starter who got fired and decided to write a book. It’s no revelation, it’s a pouty, whiny, rag filled with self-congratulation, half-truths and hate. A thousand chimps on a thousand typewriters given eons of time could not create such a tower of self-pity and victimhood.
Then there’s you—the sore loser playing with matches. The crashing bore who stayed at the party too long. You would rather contaminate the narrative with your delusional entitlement, than let the nation move on.
Finally, there’s the arsonist who couldn’t leave power gracefully. You were afforded the highest honor and you turned it into a tool to dismantle a nation. You’re the angry tenant who trashes the apartment. Only you go one better…you leave toadies in governmental sleeper cells to do your bidding. You started all the fires you could to keep bringing down the nation.
To all of you comes a solemn warning. America is not just a country. There’s something deep in our soil. Something too deep for a Marxist to understand. And if your hopes and dreams rest in bringing this nation down you just might end up fighting God Himself. There are millions of people praying at this hour. They don’t want your brand of country. They don’t want angry values and hollow promises. They want freedom. They fear the Lord…and He watches over them. You are trying to burn down our house just remember, its not just our house…it’s His.
Remember the horror you felt when you thought Hillary might be president? Save that feeling, you’ll likely need it this November. Up until today I could say Republicans had an edge for the midterms because of money and the victories Trump has won. Now, I can’t say that.
An old familiar virus is infecting the church. It is removing the sense of urgency that got Trump Elected. It is bringing back failed ideas that sidelined the church in two disastrous presidential elections.
In 2008 we were warned what Barack Obama would do. Pastors didn’t think it was right to get involved in politics. On top of that, millions of Christians, with a murky understanding of the Bible voted for him. Those fallacies are back in the church.
Obama ended up being far worse than we could have imagined. The vast machinery of the left that he set in place is still dismantling our freedom. How soon we forget the price of apathy.
By taking the House and the Senate, the left can do as much damage as having Hillary in the White House. The first thing they will do is impeach Donald Trump. While it will take more than impeachment to remove him from office—they will move to do that next.
Before you write me off as an alarmist let me ask some simple questions?
Do you see Christian Leaders trying to rally the church to stop leftist candidates? Think about what everyone is preaching right now. Do you hear anything about the looming threat to our freedom and our children’s? My guess is that you don’t.
Do you notice how many in the church are apathetic because they think that Trump’s victory is the only real victory we need? They are blissfully ignorant of the need for a whole new effort to organize and defeat the coming threat.
Do you realize that there is only one thing you need to know to vote in the midterm election? It goes beyond the fact that they want to take away the second amendment, they would to return to the deficits and government regulations that were strangling our economy and they would go back to the foreign policy that endangered us.
Here is the one thing you must remember: The Democratic Party has declared war on Christianity. Think about it…
Who bankrupted Christian bakers? Who devastated the Little Sisters of the Poor? Who told our chaplains not to mention Christ to our soldiers? Who told pastors they would lose their tax exemption if they told their congregations how to vote? Who put Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s nonprofit status in suspense for telling voters to vote their conscience? Who booed God and Israel at their convention? Who changed marriage? Who made your children go to schools with transgender bathrooms?

You are about to see the vilest campaign in American history. The left will divest itself of all decency. There will be a billion dollars burned on a propaganda campaign to label anyone who supports Trump or Republicans as racist, sexist, homophobic, and mentally challenged.
Christians are just not prepared—at least not yet—to stand against this wicked assault.At this moment, an old lie is resurfacing—it is the idea that to be sweet Christians we must not take stands that make us look bad.
The other lie is the one that says since God is sovereign and omnipotent we should just trust the outcome of November.
The Word of God shows us that God has chosen to use prayer, repentance, and obedience. 2 Chronicles 7:14 begins with “if my people.” That proves it is on us.
Between now and November I will be doing everything God tells me to warn and provoke the church to action.
Tens of thousands of high school students protesting nationwide spell doom for Trump as the nation veers left. A Democrat wins in Pennsylvania district that Trump took by 20 points, means a blue wave is coming in the midterm elections. The 60 Minutes interview with Stormy Daniels will bring Donald Trump down in scandal. Trump’s economy is called a fizzle as first quarter GDP projection drops. Christian influence will disintegrate in a post Billy Graham world.
It’s all a smoke screen! Don’t panic and don’t believe it. Let me give you the truth.
- Let me begin with the gun protests. Mass protests tend to fizzle when the dust settles and America gets a chance to think. Remember Madonna? “I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.” A chorus of cheers led gave way to some soul-searching and then the stupidity of it all surfaced.
The gun protests, where the Democratic Party used thousands of class-cutting high school students as body shields will not change facts. In fact, the protest itself provided its own best argument against it. Who can forget the visual of hypocritical Democratic leaders marching to the podium to protest guns escorted by armed guards.
Americans won’t buy the histrionics. Passing new gun control measures would blame good, honest people for the acts of murderers. Passing new gun control laws won’t protect our kids, because criminals willing to commit murder will never obey the law.
2. The election of a Democrat in Pennsylvania is meaningless. Because of redistricting this district will not even exist. Both Saccone and Lamb may end up running in November in different districts, and both may win their races if they do. Forget the special election being predictive on a national basis; it may not even be predictive for Pennsylvania.
3. This doesn’t spell doom for the Republicans in the midterm elections: Heading into November, Republicans have a distinct edge in resources and infrastructure. The party committees dedicated to the Senate and House have remained competitive with each other, but the RNC has outperformed the DNC by a wide margin. The RNC has over $40 million cash-on-hand after setting a new record for off-year donations, while the DNC barely has enough cash (a little over $6 million) to cover its existing debt.
4. Stormy Daniels interview on 60 minutes will bring Donald Trump down. Wait. Didn’t this porn star just tell Jimmy Kimmel that she absolutely never had an affair with Donald Trump? Enough said.
5. First quarter GDP projection drops. Trump’s tax cut failed? The Conference Board, a global, independent business membership and research association, said this about the first quarter drop yesterday: “ “2018 has started with a small slowdown in consumption and investment numbers, and our GDP forecast for the first quarter has been revised downward from 3.3 to 2.6 percent. But this pullback doesn’t detract from a strong 2018 outlook. The business environment for this year and next still looks bright, especially because the labor market created more than 200,000 jobs per month over the past six months.”

6. Finally, their threat and hope that the church will fade and falter defies history. In times of moral confusion, the hearts of people turn back to core values. Already, that trend is growing. Yes, Billy Graham is in heaven. All that means is others will be raised up. The leftist media will ignore moral awakening because it is a threat to their agenda.
It also defies the Word of God: Jesus said in Matthew 16:18 “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.”
Yes, we have a lot work ahead of us to transform America but this is just a smokescreen—don’t let these lies unsettle your spirit.
Why does the left drown out opposing views? Why do they curse, chant, spout catch phrases, and call people racists instead of calmly making their case? Because they have no case.
Here is a simple summary of the left: We want to force you to do something that has never worked. Sanctuary cities, marijuana, needle programs, socialized medicine, socialized anything, transgender bathrooms, have all created more chaos than they have solved. They say it is chaos for the greater good—a greater good that has never materialized. Never ever.
The left always finds a cure worse than the disease. They trade one form of racism for another. They create new injustice to replace the old injustice.
The young are easy prey for the left. If you claim an ideal they will listen. Many do not have enough life experience to understand why something just won’t work. Bernie Sanders—who was once kicked out a commune for refusing to work—tells them: “I will make the government give you free stuff.” Listen dear college student…anything the government gives you was taken from someone else. Wait till it’s your turn to be taken.
Marxism—the matrix of leftist thought—has slaughtered over one hundred million people. Yet and still, the Marxist will tell you those dictators weren’t real Marxists. However, Marxism has never taken root in a nation without genocide. Every leftist revolution has resorted to tyranny.
Packaging is everything when your product doesn’t work. Slick versions of Marxism abound. Make it trendy so Hollywood actors and late night comedians—those bastions of clear thinking—will want to identify with it. Replace sound arguments with punchlines and dim witty academy award acceptance speeches. Noise is essential to the survival of a lie.
The worst message is being presented in the best way, while the best message is being presented in the worst way. Leftists proudly scream lies while believers mumble the truth.
How should the Gospel of Jesus Christ be preached in modern sophisticated society? Here’s a better question: Why is the Gospel exploding in the developing world while it languishes here? I will tell you why, and when I do, most will say “that will never work here.” Here is what they do:
-They preach with accompanying signs and wonders.
-They demand total repentance and allegiance to Christ.
-They insist new disciples should be baptized in the Holy Spirit.
-They lead converts into church families that are more a movement than a congregation.
Most of our preachers are so insecure about saying what Jesus said, they present the most diluted homily that could be still called Christian. They are terrified to declare the parts of the Gospel that deliver the soul and liberate the heart.
Those preachers who lead revivals in jungles and wastelands believe they are declaring the best message mankind has ever heard.
Still, people say it will never work here. I say, let’s find out! Why not have meetings full of fire, raw preaching and real miracles? Why not tell the snowflakes, cupcakes, hipsters and wannabe revolutionaries about the real Jesus with real power? It won’t work? Let’s find out!
Corinth must have seemed a place that demanded a stylish and intellectual Gospel. Why else would Paul admit he overcame the temptation to “come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God.” Instead, he said, “my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.”
It is time for the American Church—along with the Churches in Europe, Australia, Japan, and every other developed nation being targeted by the leftist delusion—to shed the timid Gospel and roar righteousness.
The full Gospel is not just for poor villages and uneducated people groups. The message that works in Nigeria will work in New York. The Gospel that works in the Philippines will work in San Francisco, Tokyo, London, and Paris.
Paul wrote a book named for the most cultured, educated, and powerful city on earth—Rome. It was to the saints of that legendary city that he wrote: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.”
We denied the devil existed. What happens when you deny the existence of Satan? You wipe out the meaning of the armor of God and the sword of the Spirit. You lose your identity as a soldier of Christ. The gifts of the Spirit— “mighty to the tearing down of strongholds”—lose all meaning.
I wondered why leading pastors never confronted the evil Obama did to the church. I assumed they felt it wrong for preachers to entangle themselves in partisan politics. Today I know better.
Their issue is with confrontation itself. They hate confrontation. They refuse to believe we locked in a battle with evil. It oozes out of everything they preach.
For them, the enemy is low self-esteem not Satan. They focus on happiness and career satisfaction. Mario, what is wrong with that? Nothing, except it cuts against the grain of everything Jesus taught.
He said “but seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.” –Matthew 6:33. The unmistakable mantra of the stylish American Church is to “seek all these things.”
When the top selling Christian books of the last several years don’t mention Satan it exposes the appetites of this generation of Christians. It explains how we lost more ground to Satan, in less time, than at any other Christians in history.
And with all due respect, the teachings of these pastors actually make a purpose driven life impossible. 1 John 3:8 says, “for this purpose was the Son of God revealed, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” If you are not engaged in war against evil, you are denying Christ’s purpose. If you deny His purpose, how can you say you found yours?
Denying we are soldiers in a war destroys our capacity for sacrifice and obedience. We try to create heaven on earth and have our reward here. Instead of being in warfare, Christians are on welfare. They believe there is no work to be done, or struggle to endure, or enemy to resist. We didn’t just lose the war for our nation’s soul, we forfeited. We never even showed up.
How do we reverse this curse?
You have to separate yourself from the Christian happy hour. Explode the myth that there’s a happy life for those who deny we are in a war. What you will not read in any of those books is the disasters of so many who tried Disneyland Christianity.
Believing you can leave Satan alone and he will leave you alone, is like believing the bull will not charge because you are a vegetarian. Accepting Christ made you a target. Satan hates you and means you great harm. Ready or not…here he comes.
You must pick up a weapon. Gun control is not just a liberal cause. There is spiritual gun control in the church. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 12: 1 “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant.” The soldier who is not firing at the enemy is taken out first. All nine gifts are weapons.
Remember, you have the only faith designed for living behind enemy lines. Every other religion in the world makes allowance for escape. Not so the Christian faith. Jesus said in 17:15 I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.”
Safety is not in denying war but in fully embracing it. Jesus is called the Captain of our salvation. He leads only to victory. When you—through Christ—declare war on the devil, you instantly gain the backing of all of heaven. On the other hand, when you live the Christian life for yourself, you also live it by yourself.
Don’t disrespect Satan by fighting him on your own initiative: Spirit-filled Christians especially are guilty of downplaying the devil’s power. The insult him and trash talk him not realizing they are not protected from shenanigans. Jude 1:9 says, “Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, “The Lord rebuke you!”
Driving back the forces of the enemy in our culture will require more than hot flashes, cold chills, or the brush of angel’s wings. We can’t win unless our warfare is born in God, led by the Holy Spirit, and Bible based.
Arthur Matthews said, “Victories over the devil are not won by having a Bible and knowing some of it. Nor are they won by resolutions and good intent. It takes the Sword of the Spirit, God’s specific utterance, thrust at the enemy in the power of the controlling Holy Spirit with an unashamed “It is written” and “Thus saith the Lord.”
I say this last part out of a broken heart and with tears: God help you ministers who weakened millions Christians off the battlefield at America’s darkest hour. You hastened the spread of evil in America. You stood there basking in the adulation. You could have fielded an army but chose instead to send the sheep home grinning under the glow of false hope and undetected apathy. You had two messages. Your heart told you which was God, and your mind said which one would bring success—success that will mean nothing if the church in America is driven underground.
The good news is that God is looking for a few good men and women. He can take a nation back with a handful of sold out, rightly fitted soldiers. Time to sing “there’s an army rising up—not with wispy emotion—but life and death conviction.
