YOU BETTER THANK GOD TRUMP IS PRESIDENT

Today, as I prayed, a strange and unexpected phrase leapt into my spirit, “Trump is about to have his Winston Churchill moment.” It stunned me because it seemed so inappropriate in the light of current events. This is no time for cheerleading or political grandstanding. We are in lockdown!

Yes, we are in lockdown. Across America, store shelves are as empty as if we were a socialist nation. The empty streets are even eerier than the empty shelves. My hometown of San Francisco will close at midnight tonight and will not open again until April 7th. Citizens are ordered to shelter in place—which is just a frightening euphemism for martial law.

Why should you thank God that Trump is President? How can I go so totally against the grain of political correctness in the face of a viral pandemic? When everyone is clamoring to say we need to stop fighting each other and come together against a common enemy, why would I write something as incendiary as being positive about Trump?

Why? Because I believe something is about to come out of Trump that even his closest friends will find stunning. And, what is that?  Let’s start with the ingredients that will build toward the coming Churchill moment.

He is a New Yorker. I have always loved New Yorkers. My favorite area to preach has always been New York. My preaching doesn’t scare them there. The New York side of Trump is about to make an appearance. That thing that’s in the water that makes the pizza so great, is also in Donald Trump. You want to get something done? Tell a New Yorker it’s impossible.

I am not talking about the reptilian Mayor De Blasio or the demonic Governor Cuomo. I am talking about New Yorkers from the former glory days.

Trump is about to go ‘New York’ in a good way—the old way! He is going to suggest (read: demand) some radical action to get America back on its feet in the shortest amount of time.

During WWII, Winston Churchill was hated by Parliament because he actually taunted them. Heck, he ridiculed them. London was bombed every night and Churchill went around behind the back of Parliament to get the things done that were necessary to stop Hitler and comfort the people of Great Britain. He relied on nothing but his own convictions to rally the nation to have courage and to exhibit resolve.  Do you hear me Mr. President? The moxie you had in Manhattan, you need right now!

I believe you will see Donald Trump act in many ways that the Left will squeal are ‘reckless.’ Because he loves America and Americans, he will ignore the critics who don’t count, and do what needs to be done.

Teddy Roosevelt described the Trump we are about to see:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

I am waiting for the words, “SO WHAT?” to come barreling up out of Trump. That whatever-it-is that says, “I don’t even care if I’m re-elected anymore! I am going to do whatever it takes and I don’t care who doesn’t like it.”

Mr. President, they will call you a despot—but you must ignore the soy milk-induced wrangling of the spineless politicians on the Hill.

Trump loves America and Americans even more than he loves being President. Because of that, I know he is about to rise to a previously unseen level of courage.  Washington D.C. is a corrupt city full of rodents in suits who really don’t care how many of its citizens this virus kills or how long it takes to do it. These sniveling rats only care about staying in power. They will continue their usual compliant and cowardly approach to leadership. They will say and do whatever it takes to create fear and weakness.

I think of Peter Strozk the weasel from the FBI. Remember the nuclear smugness and robotic aloofness of his appearance before Congress? That’s what I think of when I think of D.C.

Last of all, I believe that right now, as he is alone with his private thoughts, a fire is building up in our President. And that fire is from God. He was chosen for this crisis. He is right where he needs to be, right when we need him most to be there.  Can you imagine how badly Hillary would have handled this mess?

The fire in President Trump is going to find the words to rally the American Spirit. Our Commander in Chief is going to stir up the American eagle and it is going to soar. He will remind us that we never used to scare this easily. He will speak to the noblest part of our national character and he will convince us that, together, we can do this! We can and we will lick this virus.

He will inspire us to pay the price. So what if we have to sit at home and wait it out? So what if we have to risk our economy in order to defeat this menace? The fear is unwarranted. But the sacrifice is doable.

The airlines—the economy—our healthcare system—our churches, are all going to come roaring back and we will chase this Coronavirus back to the Petri dish where it belongs.

From the Spirit of 1776 in Philadelphia, to the generation that knocked out the Third Reich, to the voice on the moon that gave a giant leap to mankind—Americans have always conquered their fears, and then they have conquered their enemies.

Yeah, look out for Trump to go into Presidential beast mode. Millions will hate him for the bold decisiveness and the clarity he is about to show.  But you and I and millions more, are going to love him for it.

I would like to think that great heroes like Winston Churchill are looking down from above, and seeing a familiar metamorphosis taking place in Donald Trump, Winston is smiling.

DEVIL, YOU DID YOUR WORST, NOW WE WILL DO OUR BEST

Stayed tuned!  A truth is about to revolutionize you.  This blog is no light thing.  It does not bear a hollow threat.  It is not fluff, fanfare, or hype.  It is—for the devil—the things that nightmares are made of. Read on.

Now I can tell you, for the first time, how bad the attack was. It was more vicious, cruel, and strategic than any previous attack. It was designed to wipe out our outreach and break my spirit.  Psalm 69: 1-3 was my prayer:

“Save me, O God! For the waters have come up to my neck. 2 I sink in deep mire, Where there is no standing; I have come into deep waters, Where the floods overflow me. 3 I am weary with my crying; My throat is dry; My eyes fail while I wait for my God.”

Matthew Henry commented on these verses: “David complains of the deep impressions that his troubles made upon his spirit.  The waters of affliction, those bitter waters, have come unto my soul, not only threaten my life, but disquiet my mind; they fill my head with perplexing cares and my heart with oppressive grief, so that I cannot enjoy God and myself as I used to do.

The considerations that used to support and encourage him now failed him, or were out of the way, and he was ready to give himself up for gone. He sought for something to comfort himself with, but found himself in deep waters that overflowed him, overwhelmed him; he was like a sinking drowning man, in such confusion and consternation.”  That was me.

At one point, the pain threw me to the floor.  I saw a sorrow in my wife’s eye I never want to see again.  I knew then, I could not tell her what was really happening inside me.

I would never walk again, let alone preach.  The ministry is finished.  I am used to his lies.  This time it felt different.  It felt like he was stabbing me my spine and hip with a knife—while he lied.

Then my miracle came.  It may not sound like much to you but the pain subsided 80% and I could walk.  The devastation to my nervous system was so great, that to this day, I can only walk for about 3 minutes before I must lie down again.  Believe me, compared to before, that is a miracle.

I know I will be totally restored soon.  No one will ever convince me my recovery isn’t supernatural.  The truth is, God has seized this recovery time to transform me. The lessons learned in the Valley of the Shadow of death will fill a lifetime.

I learned never to accuse God.  I learned what people suffer at the hands of some doctors.  I learned to pray for others while I suffered most.  I learned to let God’s Word be more real than any feeling or circumstance. 

The despair of ever preaching again has turned to an unquenchable fire to preach.  The idea that I would never walk has become a passion to add cities for our tent crusades.  If there is a Biblical beast mode…I have found it.

Here is the most important lesson I learned:  You must make the devil pay for attacking you.  That is the only language he understands—divine retribution.  Satan must be convinced there is a consequence to attacking you.

The sister lesson is this: Something you were about to do triggered the enemy.  It must be important.  It must be a threat.  Therefore you must determine to do that thing.

Winston Churchill had a standing order: Anytime Hitler bombed London, the Royal Air force was to take off and bomb Germany.  Hitler would bomb civilians.  Churchill targeted military installations.

Churchill also had a lethal command of language. He used it to taunt Hitler.  Hitler’s yawning inferiority complex made him read anything Churchill sent him.  Adolf opened one message that read, “You have done your worst, now we will do our best.”

Historians wonder why Hitler—with victory over Britain all but guaranteed—turned his armies toward Russia.  I know why.  He realized Churchill would never give up.  The devil must know that about you.

We are going to Las Vegas to win the lost and heal the sick on a larger scale than we have ever known.  We are going where gangs operate.  We are going where addicts languish.  We are going where the homeless sit in despair.

We are coming fully charged with the power of God.  We have boots on the ground!  Soldiers are coming to our side.  This Living Proof Tent Crusade will feature the widest range of ministries to touch human need we have ever seen.

We will open the flood gates of heaven in the abyss of human suffering in this city.  Never—and I mean never—has the fire for winning souls burned so hot within me.  Devil, you did your worst, now…in Las Vegas, we will do our best.

 

 

Falwell Hails Trump as the ‘Churchillian’ Leader the United States Needs

Falwell Hails Trump as the ‘Churchillian’ Leader the United States Needs

By Sandy Fitzgerald | Saturday, 20 Aug 2016 09:37 AM

Donald Trump is the “Churchillian” leader the United States needs, and is the clear choice in a “historic” presidential race that does not pit an establishment Republican against a liberal Democrat, Jerry Falwell Jr., one of Donald Trump’s early presidential race endorsers writes in an opinion piece for The Washington Post.

“We are at a crossroads where our first priority must be saving our nation,” writes Falwell, the president of Liberty University. “We need a leader with qualities that resemble those of Winston Churchill, and I believe that leader is Donald Trump. As Churchill did, Trump possesses the resolve to put his country first and to never give up in a world that is increasingly hostile to our values.”

President Barack Obama and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, his one-term secretary of State, remind Falwell of another historical character: Neville Chamberlain, the British Conservative prime minister who is is best known for signing the Munich Agreement in 1938, relinquishing a region of Czechoslovakia to Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime.

 

And, he writes, the nation’s $150 billion nuclear deal with Iran will clear the way for that country, “the leading state sponsor of terrorism in the world and a nation committed to the destruction of Israel,” to become a nuclear power. The deal reminds Falwell of Chamberlain’s deal with Hitler.

Falwell points out in his opinion piece that Americans were “forced to choose” between a liberal Democrat [Barack Obama] and “weak establishment Republicans” [John McCain and Mitt Romney] in 2008 and 2012. After Obama won, Americans in the 2010 and 2014 midterms put Republicans in control of Congress, but “still nothing changed,” Falwell writes.

In addition, he says, the policies of Obama and Clinton had the “intended or unintended” effect of breathing life into the Islamic State, and the “feckless establishment” GOP-led Congress enabled them.

Obama and Clinton also pushed the nation’s debt to $19 trillion, and law enforcement has been “demonized” by them, he continues.

Falwell warns in his article there will be “dire consequences” if Americans don’t unite between Trump and his running mate, Indiana Gov Mike Pence.

“If Clinton appoints the next few Supreme Court justices, not only will the Second Amendment right to bear arms be effectively lost, but also activist judges will rewrite our Constitution in ways that would make it unrecognizable to our founders,” said Falwell.

 

Messages to Hitler: You have done your worst now we will do our best!

INF3-67_Winston_Churchill

It is a forgotten but important part of history.  Winston Churchill would sent insults to Hitler.  Churchill understood that Adolf Hitler could not resist reading any message he got from Churchill.    One night after an especially terrible bombing on London, Churchill  sent this message to Hitler: “You have done your worst, now we will do our best.”   Mr. Churchill’s taunts were also widely known to the British people and it ignited a will to fight.

Beloved, we need to learn a secret from this legendary leader.   2012 was a year that Satan did his worst.  Now let’s make 2013 that year that God does His best through us!

Yes, Modern problems are now supernatural. To hold a family together today requires supernatural help.  To keep one’s sanity in the dizzying pace of today demands an emotional foundation that is superhuman.  Some will think that their problems are so deep that they have run off the map of the Bible.

Now for the defiant news: This can be the greatest year of your life.  Despite all the bad news and the threatening conditions you can do things this year that you never thought were possible. This is no hollow boast. My bold confession is based on a spiritual law!  When evil does its worst, God will do His best.  Let me demonstrate: When Pharaoh raged Moses appeared. When Goliath roared David came forth.  When the world seemed hopelessly locked in the grip of Nebuchadnezzar, Daniel leveled him with prophetic authority. Ruth and Boaz, the greatest love story of the Old Testament came in the darkness of the time of the Judges. Isaac obtained a hundredfold harvest in the midst of a grinding drought.  When the New Testament Church seemed doomed, their chief persecutor, Saul of Tarsus became Paul the Apostle.

 God will make special grace, power and miracles available at this time.   Here is your promise: Isaiah 60:1-5, “Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. 2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. 3 The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising. 4 “ Lift up your eyes all around, and see: They all gather together, they come to you; Your sons shall come from afar, And your daughters shall be nursed at your side. 5 Then you shall see and become radiant, And your heart shall swell with joy; Because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you.”

The real threat is that you would be deceived into small plans when you are supposed to have big ones.  We always enlarge the threat of failure and diminish the damage of not trying.  Regret is the real cancer of life.  When you look back on your life, you hardly ever regret trying something that was seemingly impossible.  What brings us pain are those memories of lost opportunity and the gnawing feeling of what might have been if we had just tried one more time.

Heaven wants expression.  Our heart must not just mouth the words, “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven,” our life must match it with plans that are born from prayer and we must act on those plans with fierce boldness!
