SOLD OUT MINISTERS NEED TO STEP TO THE FOREFRONT AND START A SPIRITUAL REVOLUTION

“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.

  1. You lost me when you said the media has been promoting Trump. If you read CNN online (I don’t watch TV) and all the other media outlets – they have been anti-Trump from the get go. I watched Trump at one of his meetings tell the press cameras to turn their focus and take a picture of the crowds that had attended, and not one did.

    Fox is unashamedly a GOP establishment tool – first promoting Jeb, then Rubio and now Kasich.

    The only reason Trump gets media attention is because he says things that sound “outlandish” and they get ratings. To them ratings translate into money from advertisers.

    My heart is that the corruption of the chattering class and the establishment strategies to impose their favored “bought and paid for by Wall Street and big money donor” candidate, will be defeated.

    Cruz has his connections to Wall Street,most interestingly his wife holds a high position (director) at Goldman Sachs, and he forgot to list those low interest loans on financial disclosure forms, for a million dollars he got from Goldman Sachs and Citi. Cruz is considered an outstanding lawyer and I find such omissions hard to believe as I am an attorney myself. Our minds are trained to observe detail especially in disclosure forms.

    Cruz also has a super pac supporting him. He will be beholden to them. Trump is not not being financially supported by those who can demand favors, and we can regard him as being the most independent of all the candidates.

    Regarding our Faith – I see Trump as a sign in the natural that political correctness in the church is destroyed. Church political correctness has destroyed the faith of many. We have created doctrines and protected leaders when the LORD tells us that we will fall with errant leaders if we follow them. We are to follow them as they follow the LORD. How many leaders preach that? do they tell people not to follow them, if the people do not see the LORD’s fruits in them? The roman catholic system imposes rules of infallibility – the leader can never be wrong. It has infiltrated the church and stolen the ability of each person to learn from the LORD – Matthew 23:8-10, Jeremiah 31:33, Hebrews 8:10.

  2. I know I share the blame for our situation. I am a pastor. I’ve let my love grow cold, and tired, and need a restoring revival more than ever. I’m concerned too because so many of my Christian friends are wanting the kind of change that Bernie is promising. Crisis and chaos continue to mount, so all that I can do is prostrate myself and cry to God for mercy

  3. I thought of one of your posts that was an encouragement to “stay in the spirit”–not to get off track because of things going on around us….I’d say the election campaigns apply here! I appreciate that you direct us to live out our faith in how we’re involved, and vote. Could i ask if you believe Christians should always vote for a professing believer if one is running (now we have 4 left that say they’re born again); or should we look carefully at each candidate? I’ve seen the necessity of voting for a believer to turn into a guilt trip, which isn’t of God. Honestly, with the one of the believing candidates, I still have a major problem, because of obvious, and on-going dishonesty, and manipulative tactics…and even backing off on opposition to same sex marriage (he’s quoted at a N.Y. meeting with gay donors, answering one of them…”What Ted Cruz Said Behind Closed Doors.” 12/23/15.) An informative Youtube video highlights this as well, and impt. info on Hilliary too…”Ted Cruz’s Flip Flop on Gay Marriage, N.Y. Money, and Hilliary Clinton’s Laugh”). I realize it may be hard to ask questions, and diligently try to understand this candidate, and his campaign; because he’s perceived (by some) as especially chosen by God (an add has light behind his head, like a halo effect). But I’d say, we as believers should be responsible to be the first to check into something, if things don’t look right!

    • Most of what I’ve read about Ted Cruz are lies and twisted information. He is strongly opposed to gay marriage. His record speaks for itself. He is a high character man and very competent and smart. The closest kind of conservative to Ronald Reagan in my lifetime.

      I don’t trust Trump at all. He I not presidential. Christians need discernment.

      Yes, I believe in voting for righteousness. I believe solid tested character comes first. Nearly every candidate will tell us he’s born again during election time. Most are liars and the lack of born again fruit exposes them easily.

      Ted Cruz has my endorsement for president.
