“In your name they rejoice all day long, and in Your righteousness they are exalted” (Ps. 89:16).
“For the Lord is righteous, He loves righteousness; His countenance beholds the upright” (Ps. 11:7).
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach (shame or disgrace) to any people” (Pr. 14:34).
The devil has overplayed his hand. Beginning with the re-election of Obama it became clear to more of us that we are in a serious spiritual war. As I’ve observed the countenance of this President over the now 7+ years he’s been in office I see a distortion. He is ruled and possessed by a principality. He is the devil’s puppet.
As for those who voted for him, which includes many professing Christians, they are even bigger puppets, and hopefully by now many have repented over their most foolish decision.
This president that so many professing Christians voted for has mocked our faith. He has kicked the living God out of the White House and invited the gods of the Philistines in. He has made it common to bash what is sacred to us. He has clearly shown his dark hand. Who knows, maybe there is worst to come. It is common knowledge now that he is the most anti-biblical and anti-Christ president in American history. I should add anti-American.
How does that last one sound to you? An American president that is anti-American. How do the high level forces, movers and shakers of this world, and other government officials put up with that? What dark sinister plan is at work? What kind of conspiracy to hijack an entire nation of people is lurking in the shadows of evil? How many have been paid off to keep from making waves and the boat from rocking?
These are questions I’ve asked myself. I’ve even had the thought of, if Trump wins the Republican candidacy, he’ll hand over the presidency to Hillary and she will make him Vice President. Sounds preposterous I know, but you can’t trust this unrighteous bunch nor the unscrupulous media that promotes them. They are all big fat liars.
But I praise God because the Church is finally waking up and smelling the horrible coffee that the Obama administration has been brewing these past 7 years. One sip of it could inoculate you against all sensibility and reason and make you one of his adoring fans and even jump on the Trump train now. If our sudden stirring now can lead us to action, perhaps many more of us will hit the voting booths and vote for righteousness.
The last straw for many of us was the nightmare SCOTUS ruling on same sex marriage. By now we should be realizing that this decision was not about equality, but it was about religious liberties gradually being taking from us.
That abominable decision is not even listed as one of the enumerative powers given to Congress. Therefore, neither the federal government nor the SCOTUS had any jurisdiction to rule on it. What they did was plainly unconstitutional. Doesn’t that just make your righteous blood boil?
But there’s a silver lining to all this. This President has actually been used to catalyze the Church as more and more of us are being filled with righteous indignation over this man’s policies. If you’re not, something needs to be made right in you.
Ladies and gentlemen, my fellow laborers in the gospel, it is time to arise! It is time we draw a line in the sand and say, “No more! No more! We’ve had enough! We won’t take this anymore!”
But first let us all repent.
You see, much of this is our fault. We’ve been passive. We’ve kept silent for too long. We haven’t educated our churches and our people on true righteousness and morality. We haven’t made enough serious disciples. Too much indulgence of the world and too little of true communion with God has made us dull and compromising. Evil has advanced because we did nothing and said nothing.
Bonhoeffor said it best: “Silence in the face of evil is evil itself. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”
Now listen to Charles Finney expound on the heavy responsibilities of our pulpits:
“If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it. Let us not ignore this fact, my dear brethren; but let us lay it to heart, and be thoroughly awakened to our responsibility in respect to the morals of this nation.”
As I stated in another recent article, pastors have been silent and that silence has allowed the enemy to gain ground. Many pastors have thought, “I don’t want to be involved in dirty politics. My job is to preach the gospel and stay out of politics. There must be a separation of Church and State…blah, blah, blah.” By now I hope you have seen by what I have previously written that this is wrong irresponsible thinking.
“If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Ps. 11:3)
Let us repent and renounce our silence, timidity, and inactivity. It’s time to fight and rally to a cause that is greater than any cause – the cause for righteousness! Let our pulpits be set on fire with what thus saith the Lord. Let our mouths be loosed with Spirit-inspired utterance from flaming tongues. Let us be men that can never be bought.
Let more of Finney’s words urge us on:
“Brethren, our preaching will bear its legitimate fruits. If immorality prevails in the land, the fault is ours in a great degree.”
So let us turn back the tide of immorality.
“If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it.”
So let us put a halt to the decay of conscience.
“If the public press lacks moral discrimination, the pulpit is responsible for it.”
Therefore, let us hold them accountable and put their fat to the fire.
“If the church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it.”
Therefore, let us preach regeneration for holiness loud and strong.
“If the world loses its interest in religion, the pulpit is responsible for it.”
Therefore, let us fan the flames of white hot revival until Jesus is seen and heard.
We are on the winning side, ladies and gentlemen. The Lord is with us and always favors the cause of His righteous ones.
Let us unite!
All for one and one for all.
All for Jesus.
All for the gospel.
All for eternity.
