EXPLAINING THE SHOCKING RESULTS IN MODESTO

The unfolding events in Modesto read like something from a bygone era. A full 2 hours before the start, the tent was half full and we moved up the worship start to 5:45 P.M.

This is California. California, where supposedly, people do not want God. And even hate God. California where they are overscheduled and underwhelmed with the idea of having to show up early for anything. Right?

We rented 500 extra chairs, but almost immediately, they were filled. We used a tent much larger than our old tent, and still the overflow was larger than any previous tent crusade. Thousands came.

The only draw is singing, preaching, and Jesus. That is all. No bells, no whistles, no extravaganza. This in itself is a sermon. How far have we strayed from realizing the power of the presence of God to draw people? The presence that touches the human heart as nothing else can. The presence of God that Moses said would distinguish us from all the peoples of the earth (Exodus 33:16).

Why are they here? It is not just the presence of God, but they have been driven here because Satan and the Left have gone too far. The vision of the Left for California is an unmitigated disaster. It is misery for everyone, from the cradle to the grave.

Going ‘woke’, drains the color and enjoyment out of everything. It means living in a perpetual state of offense and paranoia. It turns otherwise rational people into people obsessed with racism.

They did not sit through just one sermon, but I preached two sermons. The first for lost souls, and the second, for revival.

It has been assumed by most, that Californians cannot sit through a full sermon, let alone two. That is just one of the sacred cows and false assumptions this blog has been targeting―but there is a simple reason: we are losing the war for America―and for all the wrong reasons.

Not only that, but my first sermon left in all of the items you are supposed to leave out. I preached against sin. I mentioned hell, often. I centered on the Cross and the Blood. I told them to repent.

When will we learn to preach what the Holy Spirit wants?

Then the Holy Spirit removed the protection and the resistance of sinners. They instantly left all, to follow Jesus. They tell me that 500 people came to Christ last night. But as always, only God knows the actual number.

The next sermon I preached centered on revival. I told the audience that we did not just want a great meeting. We do not want great pictures and memories of an event that came and went. “I want Satan to pack up and get out of town!”

To that end I made the following points:

1. Who knows when it will ever be like this again? What if this is the last time the door to revival will be open to California?

Esther 4:13-14, “And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

2. Understand what is at stake: We are fighting for our families! Nehemiah 4:14, “And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses.””

3. Make room for revival.  Jesus said to let down the nets, but they only let down one net.

Luke 5:4-7, “When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless, at Your word I will let down the net.” And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. So, they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. 

4. We need the outpouring of Fresh Fire in order that we may be turned into the people of this hour.

1 Samuel 10:6-7, “Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.”

Acts 4:29-31, “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.”

After the Word of the Lord was delivered last night, the fire fell, and thousands of people vowed to be lions of righteousness. They were sent out into the night to bring the sick to the great miracle service that will take place in the tent tonight. Join with us in prayer, and if you are coming―get there early!

TONIGHT AT 6 ;30 PM TENT OPENS AT 5 PM COME EARLY!

IS THE PROPHETIC MOVEMENT FUMBLING THE BALL AT THE GOAL LINE?

Because of the pandemic, the prophetic movement woke up to its true calling after years of living in a bubble. The pandemic was sobering, and the leftist takeover of America was a rude awakening. But the good thing was that prophets began to actually be prophets—speaking truth to power; calling the church to repent; and confronting evil government in a unified resistance.

Leaders of churches rightfully sued the government for banning worship services. Intercessors and seers rightfully instructed the church that their political neutrality and political ignorance led to the stealing of an election and the ongoing dismantling of our freedoms.

We began to understand how to contact our congressmen and how to expose the stream of lies from the media. We started praying and obeying. We did not just sing, “There’s an army rising up,” we became that army.

Most of all, the prophetic movement began to realize that they were raised up for this very moment—not to use prophecy as entertainment but as a weapon to expose devils, tear down strongholds and rebuke the politicians, professors, and celebrities who were plunging America into immorality.

In the bubble of the good times the prophetic movement got away with indulgences. Too many “words from the Lord” were simple flattery. Teachers relating stories that were nothing short of out-of-Bible experiences. A virtual reality dominated our terminology and our conferences. Artificial weapons and tactics replaced Biblical doctrine. We saw the prophetic beginning to fire blanks.

 Now, that the nation is starting to reopen, the prophetic movement is being tempted back into those powerless old ways. In fact, I believe that religious spirits are preying on our nostalgic yearning for the good old day—days that we now know were a fantasy.

Voices are dusting off the old, tired platitude that we should not be involved in politics. We are starting to hear the worn-out message of how entitled we are to God’s protection. Just when we were finally ready to do the right thing, the enemy is trying to intimidate us, and lure us off the frontline.

But if we relapse, the movement will become worse than ever. Because this time we will indulge in compromise and imbalance with our eyes wide open, fully conscious of our mistake.

It is not by accident that the enemy is doing this now. Because today wokeness reached critical mass. When Major League Baseball, Coca Cola, and American Airlines asserted that requiring identification to vote is racist, removed any excuse for neutrality. They have fully declared war on this nation, you, your children, your church, and your God.

As Andrew McCarthy so efficiently put it: “The Left ruins everything. Sports, entertainment, toys, snack cakes, you name it. Their wokeness is a cancer, and it’s taking every enjoyable, unifying, non-political piece of American life and destroying it. In Georgia, their crusade against the state’s election law is built on a house of lies.” 

We must fight off the religious spirit that wants to believe the storm has passed when the real storm has just arrived.

What does God want? I am convinced that we are to engage our time and energy on two imperatives:

1. Political and moral action: To organize and educate ourselves on how to terrify national Democrat leaders, how to win local elections, and train our people to know why they believe what they believe, and why they believe it. This means that the pulpit must take on abortion, gay marriage, transgender indoctrination of our children, and yes, racism—the racism of the Left that is turning minorities into victims.

2. Win souls with signs and wonders. Our California crusades have already proven that millions want Jesus. God has also demonstrated that He will heal the sick and give us notable miracles. Converting Americans is the surest way to transform the moral and political darkness in America.

This is our greatest hour. This movement can become the lightning America needs right now. We must not become weary in well doing. Let us not fumble the ball at the one-yard line!

PRAY FOR THE MODESTO CRUSADE!

THIS IS WHAT A MORALLY BANKRUPT PARTY LOOKS LIKE

We get it. You hate Donald Trump. But what happened to all your ideals? What about diversity? What about your hatred of Wall Street and capitalism?

You started with a gay man, women, and minority candidates. This is your final answer? Let’s replace one white New York City billionaire with another? You dumped the candidate who really did put illegal pressure on the Ukraine for a quid pro quo, and then you turned around and picked Hillary for Mike’s VP—the one who really did collude with the Russians to rig an election!

This must be your rationale: ‘Okay, so Bloomberg has racist tweets. He said that blacks and Latino men don’t know how to behave. So what? He may have made extremely vile and sexist remarks verbally and in print (he did: https://www.pressdemocrat.com/news/10713950-181/bloomberg-for-years-has-battled?sba=AAS), but at least he’s our candidate. He may have put farmers in a new “basket of deplorables” by calling them dumb, but hey, at least he is our guy.’

We believe you now. You hate Trump more than you value diversity, equality and truth. If it means winning against Trump, you will violate every conviction you ever cherished just to get back into power. You have truly sold your soul to the highest bidder.

This is what a morally and ideologically bankrupt political party looks like. This is what a cynical crime family, who has abandoned their high sounding platitudes, looks like. This is what liars and despots act like when they have zero ideas and zero concern for the American people.

Every Bernie follower must be seething right now. Even if he gets the most votes, they are going to derail him because the establishment knows he is too extreme to beat Trump. ‘Berners’ know that the greedy and cold blooded Democrat establishment can’t resist Mike Bloomberg’s money. Look at them—the aged overseers of the swamp.

They remind me of an aging actress still trying to get free dinners on her looks. How you have cheapened yourself. How degraded, salacious, and contaminated you have become. Your entire party and its legacy is forever slimed by the utter depravity of your attempts to strike a blow against Trump.

My kindly, hard-working, law abiding fellow Americans: behold the monster. No ideals, no morals, no plans, nothing noble or compelling to hold to. They are a blob of hate and ambition that demands utter repudiation. They have become the epitome of what Proverbs 4:16 describes, “…evil people can’t sleep until they’ve done their evil deed for the day. They can’t rest until they have caused someone to fall.”

What are they going to say against Trump, now that they are everything they accuse him of being? Every time they slander him, it will be nothing but a self-portrait.

They became the party of atheism and death when it suits them. In Proverbs 8:36, God defines them: “All those who hate Me, love death.”

We as Americans have the power to drain the swamp. Don’t wait for Donald Trump to do it for you. It is up to us to stand for righteousness and vote these cold-blooded scoundrels out of office!

Maybe now millennials will see how they have been played. Maybe now, at last, you will face the fact that they are corrupt to the core.

Leo Tolstoy said of Napoleon, “He lost the power to think a decent thought.”  So has the soulless Democrat Party Establishment.
