These 5 Things

Things are going to get even crazier. Yes, there is little doubt that we are going to see a scorched earth political campaign from the Left.  They will be carpet bombing the nation with propaganda.  The flood of fake news, character assassination, and criminal activity during the election season will be worse than anything you have ever seen before.  At a certain point, it may look impossible for our side to win.  However, I know we can—because I know God wants to do a miracle.

I have sought the Lord.  I have spent much time praying, studying, thinking, and writing.  Last night it hit me.  There are 5 things we can do, and if we do them I know Trump will be reelected. Here they are:

1. Realize that there are more of us than you know. There are millions who love Jesus and who also love America and who support our President.  It is not necessary for you to engage in endless debates or try to change anyone’s mind—all you have to do is to get those who are already like-minded to become active.

Activate them by telling them what is at stake.  They must know that the Democrat agenda for America is the Spirit of Antichrist, pure and simple. It is the instrument by which virtue, freedom, and justice will be removed and our cities turned into institutional hell holes.

Ask if they are registered to vote.  Ask what they plan to do, and make sure they vote.  Talk to them about studying a sample ballot so that they will be prepared to vote correctly.  Talk to them about early voting.  Make sure they know where to vote.

2. Talk to your pastor. Make sure you don’t threaten to leave the church if you don’t get your way! Just gently ask if he or she would consider instructing the Body on what is at stake.  One fact should outweigh everything else:  THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS DECLARED WAR ON CHRISTIANITY.  You are not lying or exaggerating when you tell that to your church leader.

Spiritual leaders need to know they are not ‘getting political’ by being vocal about the election.   It’s the Democrats who have gotten anti-God.  It is a natural extension of a preacher’s calling to destroy the works of Satan which, in this case, is the Left’s plan to drive the church underground.

3. Educate yourself on the issues and take public stands. No, I don’t want you glued to cable news, but you should be able to defend the reasons why you are pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, and why you support the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Yes, you can win debates and change minds.  When your child comes home from school a victim of leftist encroachment, you should know your parental rights.  I have found that many of the ideas of the Left are easily defeated by the Truth. Young minds often believe the silliness liberal teachers are spouting because they have never heard an opposing view.

Write letters to editors.  Call in to radio shows.  You’ll be amazed at how much noise you can make, and how many minds you can change.

4.Know that by taking stands against delusional leftists you are not being unloving.  Paul knew when to stand up for his civil rights: Acts 16:36: “So the keeper of the prison reported these words to Paul, saying, “The magistrates have sent to let you go. Now therefore depart, and go in peace.” 37 But Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out.” 38 And the officers told these words to the magistrates, and they were afraid when they heard that they were Romans.”

Paul knew his rights, and he wasn’t concerned that he might appear to be unloving.  He forced a political change in that city.

5.Understand warfare intercession. Prayer can’t be polite in this election cycle. It must be intense.  It must be targeted.  It must be deliberate and very specific. It must discern what is happening.  Arthur Matthews wrote, “Principalities and powers in heavenly places have mustered their unseen array, rigged their Trojan horse, infiltrated society and opened the gates for a flood of evil to take over.”

Once they have been alerted to that inescapable fact, the soldiers of Jesus must set themselves to unleash heaven upon the powers of evil.  Tragically, most believers are ignorant of the invisible battle.  Edith Schaeffer said that “there is a deadness, a blindness, an insensitivity among many Christians, for they refuse to recognize the war in which they are involved.”

The good news is that Jehovah only needs a handful of true intercessors to thwart Satan’s plans in this coming election.  However, it is imperative for you to understand your duty and your authority.  Again, Arthur Matthews wrote, “Barriers are not moved by God’s omnipotence until the believer takes the initiative and stands his ground in the heavenly places to engage the powers of evil that are directly the cause of the ground-level troubles, and resists them in the name of the Victor of Calvary.”

When the enemy came to steal Israel’s water, Moses took action to cut off demonic power at the source:  Exodus 17:8: “Now Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim. 9 And Moses said to Joshua, “Choose us some men and go out, fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand.””

So long as Moses held up the rod over the battle, the Amalekites were defeated.  You know the rest, Aaron and Hur held up his hands until victory came.

Hold up the standard of God in prayer.  Hold it over the demons that are driving the Left to their insane extremes.  Let your intercession disrupt them.  Watch as God divides, confuses, and neutralizes the strategies of devils!  Watch as He pours out His Spirit upon America in a Great Awakening—and we will see a miracle in November 2020!  Hallelujah!

 

 

 

LET’S STOP THE AGENDA OF EVIL

As I was standing in front of the U. S. Capital Building, it suddenly hit me: The Body of Christ is to have a mighty influence on America.  From the get-go, our founding fathers realized that morality and love of truth would breathe life into the Constitution.  They believed in liberty, not license.  They believed in freedom, not anarchy. They understood that the system of government they had created must work in concert with God fearing, hardworking, freedom loving citizens.

The church refuses to face the truth today, which is why we are powerless in the face of our ongoing national destruction.  We must face the facts.  We must see that the Loony Left is a weapon of Socialist tyranny that is about to kill America. We already see their death in the disastrous programs meant to help the poor.

Ben Franklin said, “I am for doing good to the poor, but…I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed…that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”

Right now, 49.2 percent of all Americans are receiving benefits from at least one government program, and the U.S. government has spent an astounding 3.7 trillion dollars on welfare programs over the past five years.

The leftists believe they are the only ones who care about poverty, racism and injustice.  Secular progressives will say they love the poor.  If so, then they have loved Detroit to death.  After 61 years, and after receiving nearly a trillion dollars in Federal aid, Detroit has been reduced to a pile of rubble by liberal policies. The city is a horror show of abandoned factories, illiteracy, prostitution, gangs, and homeless camps.  The same damage can be seen in any urban area where these programs dominate. It is an agenda of evil.

Michael Snyder said, “In 1960, the city of Detroit was the greatest manufacturing city that the world had ever seen.  Nearly two million people lived there, and it had the highest per capita income in the United States.  That may be hard to believe, because today it actually has one of the lowest per capita incomes of all of our major cities.  Over the decades more than a million people have left the city, and thousands of abandoned homes have been torn down.

It has become known as a mecca of violent crime and poverty, and now a viral video is giving an unpleasant view of Detroit after dark.

The clip, called Driving through Detroit at night, was filmed by a woman who was a passenger in a car going around the Motor City and was posted to Twitter at the weekend.

It shows terrifying scenes of gangs gathered on the sidewalk, prostitutes lifting up their skirts and dancing, and even a man being run over by a car on purpose.

Many people openly wonder what happened to Detroit, but it really isn’t much of a mystery at all.”

We poured untold billions into Detroit, but corrupt Democrat Leaders gutted this city. Now they will gut America.

The Democrat agenda for America is the Spirit of Antichrist pure and simple. It is the instrument by which virtue, freedom, and justice will be removed and our cities turned into institutional hell holes.

I challenge you: name a single city that has been run by Democrats for decades that is not a city corrupt to the walls, leading the nation in rampant crime, awash in drugs and perversion, and looking like a third world country. Having learned nothing, they have made the Squad with their extremist policies, the face of the Democrat Party.

Leftist ideology appeals to three kinds of people:

1. Those who do not want to work.

2. Those who want to gain power by posing as champions for the poor.

3. Those who feel self-loathing and guilt for the sins of their ancestors.

Social progressives will accuse me of blaming the victim.  I am not blaming the victim—I am naming the villain. 

The church should be a great force for saving America, but we have been neutralized. The media changed the rules about how Christians and government relate.  On the one hand, they made it fashionable to bash the church, the Bible, and Israel.  On the other hand, they made it wrong for the church to speak out, and have directly attacked our freedom to preach the Gospel.

The Left’s tactics are trying to make the church look hateful just for having an opposing view.  Many famous pastors have let this slide because they did not want to appear racist.  Still others feared the IRS would remove their tax-free status.  Now we know we were wrong to be silent.

Another example is the Chicago area which has a larger number of shooting victims every week than were killed at Parkland. And people are fleeing in record numbers. Chicago, the county seat of Cook County, has had a huge population loss—the largest of any county in the country. Between 2015 and 2016 Cook County experienced a domestic migration loss of more than 66,000 people, “a staggering number of people to lose in a single year.” (Michael Snyder, Economist)

I believe that evil politicians should fear us.  Paul did not believe that his gospel integrity would be ruined by speaking out against evil leadership. Nor do I believe that my outspoken opposition to the pro-death Democrat Party is in any way inconsistent with love or truth.  For that matter, Christ did not worry that turning over tables and evicting the money changers would ruin His image of love and compassion.

Our silence has stemmed from another root: our decreased faith in the Gospel.  We have forgotten its surpassing power.  We do not remember the history of how the church has stemmed corruption in America in the past. We have forgotten the record of how men and women in the Bible have turned the tide of evil government. We have forgotten how effective the Gospel is in situations just like this.

We have forgotten that the Gospel is supernatural.

We must embrace the simple truth that government is a crippling counterfeit of the Gospel. And we must allow God to explode a fresh passion for the Gospel, the greatest of all messages. Then we will proclaim its truth with a powerful roar, and without apology!  Should we not have a bold and fiery national declaration of Christ, I shudder to think what will happen!

Please, ponder the words of John Adams written in 1798:

“While (America) remains untainted with the principles and manners which are now producing desolation in so many parts of the world: while she continues to be sincere and incapable of insidious and impious policy (practices): we shall have the strongest reason to rejoice in the local destination assigned us by Providence. But should the people of America once become capable of that deep (hypocrisy) towards one another and towards foreign nations which assumes the language of justice and moderation while it is practicing iniquity and extravagance, and displays in the most captivating manner the charming picture of…sincerity while it is rioting in (greed) and insolence—this country will be the most miserable habitation in the world: because we have no Government armed with power capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or (bravado) would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate (for the governing) of any other.”

Heed my warning: unless there is a Great Awakening in America, unless there is a new baptism of the Holy Spirit, and unless fresh fire falls upon the church, neither our Constitution nor any of the thousands of laws currently on the books will prevent the chaos that will surely bring about the collapse of the United States.

As God’s people we must quit showing tolerance for policies that are destroying America. We must shake off any and all embarrassment of the Gospel.  Yes, there have been abuses, but as Woodrow Wilson said, “The proof that the Gospel is divine is the preaching it has survived.” Even a small determined group of spirit-filled warriors preaching with unbridled boldness and total obedience is enough to stop this Democrat agenda of evil.

 

Your Power

Mass murder, debauchery, and the stress of nations—these things press on us daily.  We can feel the crushing weight of inadequacy. We ask:  Can we stay sane?  Is the moral situation so far gone that we must withdraw into our ‘faith cocoons’ and just endure, hoping we outlast the madness?

Ephesians 6:10 says, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.’  But, how do we apply all that power and might to this flood of evil and stress that is bombarding us every day?

Not only can we apply it, we are expressly called—and uniquely equipped—to express the power of God.  The legacy of our faith demands it. The nature of the Holy Spirit—and the Word of God demand it.  There is no holding-pattern for us.  God only leads forward.

The religions of the world teach escape.  They deem the world to be too dangerous for their devotees.  Whether it is a Buddhist Monastery or a Muslim Caliphate, the message is clear: They can’t coexist with secular culture.  They require physical separation, cleansing rituals, strict diets, or the total subjugation of infidels.

With just a few simple words, Jesus revealed the vast superiority of our victory compared to all the religions of the world.   He prayed to the Father, “I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.” (John 17:15)

Supernatural peace can quell the deep frustration from hearing the insane ideas and words of politicians. 

When Jesus prayed that prayer, He was praying for us, His flock, to remain in the culture. We are to be warriors. We are to be salt and light. These are not just fighting words—they are an in-your-face smack down of evil.

While cultural contact withers the faith of false religions, it enhances the Christian—it sharpens their faith, brightens their light, and deepens their authority.

You must understand why you are here.  You must see the astounding picture of the army you belong to.  Our very presence on earth is God’s way of saying, victory is available.  He keeps us here because we can win!

Think of soldiers in an army who are only aware of the battle they are fighting in their own little sector. They are being hard-pressed, and things are going against them. If, for one moment, they think it is just their fight, they will soon be defeated. But when they remember they are only a part of a great and mighty army, and that the Captain, their Leader, the God of the Armies of Heaven is directing it, immediately the situation is transformed. In other words, we have got to realize God is involved in this battle with us. We are only here because of God.

The 3 steps I am about to declare will bring victory over the present evil and stress.  They hit me, when I saw two groups of people. They were hundreds of years apart and in totally different circumstances, but they took these identical 3 steps to victory.

One was a prophecy by Daniel around 600 B.C. The other, occurred in 31 AD.

In his prophecy, Daniel described how the Maccabean revolt would triumph in 167 BC.  The second instance happened when the people in the land of Gennesaret welcomed Jesus.  The former liberated Israel—the latter wiped out sickness and disease.  Again, they both took the same 3 steps.  Here are the scriptures:

Daniel 11:32 “Those who do wickedly against the covenant, he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits.”

Mark 6:53-56: “When they had crossed over (the Sea of Galilee), they came to the land of Gennesaret and anchored there. And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him, ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was. Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.”

Here are the 3 key words in both these victories: KNOW, STRONG, CARRY.  The first group knew God. They were strong. And they carried out exploits.  The second group did those same 3 things.  They recognized (knew Jesus).  They ran (showed strength).  They carried others who received miracles (exploits).

Take these 3 steps to defeat today’s stress and evil:

1. Obey God’s pull. He is pulling you to know Him in deep intimacy: Psalm 27:8 says “When You said, “Seek My face,” My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”  What is your reaction to God’s call? He wants to do a secret work in you.  Are you saying, “Yes”?

I believe Jesus is using this message from me to draw you into special closeness with Him.  If you say, “Yes,” special things will begin to happen.  You will instantly conquer fear and worry.  Isaiah 26:3 says, “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. “

Your faith for mighty things will multiply.  Jesus said,” If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.” (John 15:7)

God not only knew that the insanity of today was coming—He took steps to prepare a special relationship that would produce special powers for His children.  We can blame no one but ourselves if we neglect this astonishing invitation.

2. Become strong. What did Isaiah say would happen to those who heeded the call to wait on God? “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)

Your new-found and deep connection to God the Father will create strength.  Note once again, the amazing parallel between the phrases, “they shall run and not be weary,” and “they recognized Him and ran.”

‘Touchy-feely’ faith is out.  This is the era of strong Christians.  Tomorrow belongs to Christians who are stronger than any headline—stronger than threats—stronger than anything unfolding on the earth.

3. Accept your mission: You have a mission, you have an ordained exploit. It is ironic that the true cure for today’s fear and stress is: to think big and take on massive vision.  Fresh vision always chases away depression.

An exploit that summons up all your talent and every drop of your courage and combines it with His limitless resources, is comfort food for the Spirit-empowered believer.

The bottom line:  We are subjective creatures. We live in this unhealthy psychological generation that starts with man and ends with man. Most of our troubles are due to that. We are full of self-pity. We are always looking inward and feeling sorry for ourselves. We are always looking for something to help us. Get rid of those things! Forget about yourself for a moment, and realize that the battle belongs to the Lord!

You can know Him. You can become strong.  And you will accomplish amazing things in Him!  

 

 

 

 

Biden Caves

The mob now controls the Democrat Party. Joe Biden just proved it to us. On Wednesday, he blamed President Trump for the mass shootings in the U.S., accusing the President of inspiring deadly hate crimes by embracing white nationalist extremism.
Speaking to a group of supporters in Burlington, Iowa, Biden lashed out at the President in his most pointed remarks to date, accusing Trump of unleashing “the deepest, darkest forces in this nation.”
“We have a problem with this rising tide of white supremacy in America and we have a President who encourages it and emboldens it,” Biden, the 2020 Democrat frontrunner, said.
“Indeed, we have a President with a toxic tongue who has publicly and unapologetically embraced the political strategy of hate, racism and division,” he added.
How much evidence did he offer for this? Zero. What facts did he present? Zilch. What Trump quote did Biden cite to back his inflammatory accusation of hate, racism and division? Nothing. This is because the Socialist Party (formerly known as the Democrat Party) is now the Party of Zero, Zilch, and Nothing.

Biden knew he was lying. But he was also telegraphing something else to us, and that is the real story: it is that he has capitulated to the mob—those who want to bring chaos to America so they can step into the vacuum and take control.  More than that, he is admitting that the extreme Left has overcome and defeated moderate Democrats. He has concluded that, in order to win the nomination, he must now support the extreme positions of the Squad.
The “deepest, darkest forces in this nation” that he mentioned have nothing to do with Donald Trump—those ‘forces’ are to be found in the mob that ‘forced’ Biden to speak the lies he told today. He is telling us that both his bid, and Nancy Pelosi’s bid, to pull the Party away from the extreme Left has failed. It’s game over.
This is a first in American history. Masked marauders and club toting thugs will ultimately decide the platform of a Party that has utterly lost its way.
The truth of their collapse is unavoidable. The Mueller report was a hoax. It too, was based on a lie. Russian collusion anyone? It’s a hoax. White Supremacy?  In a nation that elected Barack Obama? Twice. You’re joking, right?

Today, they revealed their true identity. What is the Democrat Party? “We are the Party of masks, torches, bats, and knives. We are Antifa. We take our children to Senators’ houses and scream that they need to be stabbed in the heart. We are the Party that will hack your private information and destroy your property if you support Trump. Our members have produced a movie that advocates the murder of anyone wearing a MAGA hat.”
Mealy-mouthed Biden read a prepared statement written by rabble, rioters, and haters.  Today, though Joe doesn’t realize it, he has called out all of the real God-fearing people and lovers of freedom.  By embracing anarchy, he made it plain that those who value decency, morality, and faith, must work to remove this Party from power.

IS THE SQUAD A GIFT FROM GOD?

By attacking ‘the Squad of Four,’ Trump has forced Pelosi to defend them. By defending them, Nancy fell into Trump’s trap. His goal was to make the Squad the face of the Democrat Party, and it worked!

Trump is not wasting any time attacking Biden or any other potential Democrat candidate for President. He knows—with wisdom from beyond this world—that he has found the key to his reelection.

The Squad hates America. The Squad hates Israel. The Squad has no vision for America, except to destroy it. That is toxic baggage for the Democrat Party.

Remember when Nancy said these words about the Squad? “All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many [congressional] votes they got.” She said it because she knows how much they will damage her party’s chances in 2020.

Then in a chess move worthy of a grand master, Trump lobs his grenade-Tweet. It wasn’t racist, and everyone except those who hate Trump knows that. Nancy had no choice but to stand up for her radical colleagues or incur the wrath of the majority progressive wing of her party.

Independent voters are horrified by this deranged ‘Gang of Four.’ Americans understand how our system works. They know the difference between dissent and hatred.  Disagreeing with government is patriotic. Hating it, and wanting it destroyed, is something totally different.

Nancy’s panic is not over these beliefs—she and her wacko friends in the San Francisco Bay Area agree with almost all of this. Give me a break—the Berkeley City Council just voted to stop referring to manholes as manholes because of the word ‘man’!

No, Nancy is panicking because the ‘Gang of Four’ are coming out and saying what their agenda really is, in plain words. This has forced Democrats to come clean.

The platform of the Democrat Party is based on the lie that America was founded upon and embedded with racism, sexism, and white supremacy, and they believe only a revolution can deliver national salvation. That means the end of America as we know it.  Ocasio and company are openly saying all of this.   The Squad has forced the Democrat Party to come clean and admit they agree.  Revolution, violent if necessary, is their true intention—this will horrify Americans.

This reminds me of a preacher I knew who was teaching a certain heresy, but he did it with subtly and wordsmithing. His young disciples, however, lacking his way with words, just bluntly stated the doctrine. The heretic was exposed by his young adherents.  The same has happened to the Democrat Party.  They now own the radical and hateful rants of the Squad, because it is essentially what they believe…they just didn’t want America to find out this way.

Here’s the genius of Trump’s move: If Nancy sticks with her gang of four she loses the independent vote. If she exiles them she will split the party. Either way Trump wins.

Ilhan Omar said ““We are going to continue to be a nightmare to this president because his policies are a nightmare to us. We are not deterred. We are not frightened,” Little does she know that Trump is hoping for and on counting her delusional rants to continue.  She is no nightmare to Trump, she’s a nightmare to Pelosi.

These four women are blatantly radical and unapologetically hate America. They don’t even mask their malice like savvy leftists should.  Is their hateful meltdown a result of  intercessors and the godly core praying and standing in the gap for America? Sometimes Gods’ gifts come in strange packages.

Trump is going to drive the point home that this election is about saving America from leftist, socialist, anti-Semitic radicals, who are bent on killing prosperity, freedom, and Christianity.  He is going to ride that white horse all the way until November of 2020.
If we as Christians will all vote and use the time wisely, we will have four more years in which to evangelize America. The alternative is beyond unthinkable…
