THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s: JESUS TO THE AMERICAN CHURCH, MEET THE CONDITIONS AND YOU’LL SEE MY POWER

In December 2001, Sheikh Ahmad al Qataani, a leading Saudi cleric, appeared on a live interview on Al-Jazeera satellite television to confirm that Muslims were turning to Jesus in alarming numbers. “Every hour 667 Muslims become Christians,” Al Qataani stated. “Every day 16,000 Muslims become His followers, and every year 6 million Muslims decide to follow Jesus.”

Amazing! Glory to God! This trend continues throughout nations in the Middle East, in southeast Asia, in North Africa, and a great harvest of souls continues to be reaped in China.

As one of the greatest examples, the nation of Iran, perhaps the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism, despite a crackdown on Christians in the land formerly known as Persia, is experiencing explosive growth and harvest. The growth of house churches and secret meetings is staggering. A few short years ago there were reports of 300,000 believers meeting in secret in Iran, but today it is estimated that there are more than 3,000,000 believers in Iran (at last count and growing daily). There is widespread disenchantment with Islam because in Islam there is no love, and no assurance of salvation, but following Jesus means they are assured we can spend all of eternity with Him in paradise.

AMERICA

What about America? Why aren’t we seeing a move of God and a great harvest like that here? I believe it is because the accountability factor is greater. To whom much is given much is required (Luke 12:48). The nations who are experiencing great signs and wonders, and an unprecedented harvest of souls as in the aforementioned examples, are those who have not been given as much but yet are experiencing great persecution. Meanwhile in America we are drawing back and not walking in the all the light we’ve been given.

Here is a great prophetic excerpt from Stanley Frodsham, a contemporary of Smith Wigglesworth that I have referred to before:

“With great judgments will I plead with the population of this country. Great darkness is coming upon the countries that have heard My gospel but no longer walk in it. My wrath shall come upon them.”

And then he prophesied this:

Before I visit the nations in judgment; I will begin at My house. When I do cause My wrath to come upon the cities of the world, My people shall be separate. I desire a people without spot or wrinkle, and such will be preserved by Me in the time of My wrath, which will be coming upon all iniquity and unrighteousness.”

TRUE DISCIPLES SUFFER PERSECUTION

True disciples don’t draw back during times of persecution, but the compelling love and reality of Jesus Christ keeps them moving forward. In America our materialism keeps us at ease. We must understand, however, that comfort and convenience are not the marks of true disciples and moves of God we see in Scripture, and what we are seeing in other nations. There is a price to pay.

Some might ask, “What then do we do—try and receive persecution?” The Bible tells us that the godly shall suffer persecution (2 Tim. 3:12). If you live right, persecution will come. Our problem is we try to make a good showing in the flesh so that we won’t suffer persecution that comes through the cross of Christ (Gal. 6:12). If more believers in the church in America would simply live godly lives and preach and live the cross, trust me, persecution would manifest.

Listen to the wise words of evangelist Maria-Woodworth Etter, who walked in great power and whose ministry manifested phenomenal signs and wonders right here in America more than a century ago.

“The mistake many of us make is to let the persecutions, and threatening and rage, and the powers of this world scare us and frighten us. We are not prepared to suffer. We don’t trust God and go to Him to vindicate His work for us. We too often draw back or compromise and “use wisdom” of the wrong kind, and are just as well satisfied when the power of God is not manifested so much, and the nice, quiet, imminently respectable modern Christians are not offended. We should be praying and looking for God to work more and manifest His power more, to draw back is not pleasing to God, and therefore, the marvels and miracles, the manifestations of His presence and power are to a great degree, lacking. Let us go forward. Meet the conditions. Come at peace with all the brethren with love for God and man. Come with the desire that Jesus may be glorified. Meet together in one accord.” 

What a word of wisdom for the hour we live in.

The conditions are repentance and prayer, a love for the brethren and all mankind and a desire to see Jesus glorified. Many American believers know they are not living right, not obeying God in fullness, drawing back from a truly consecrated walk, and so their conscience is unclean and defiled. They have no confidence and assurance before God and therefore cannot walk and act in faith. As a result, many prayers go unanswered.

ARE YOU PLEASING GOD?

Enoch of old had this testimony that he pleased God (see Heb. 11:5). Paul also made this his life’s quest. “Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him” (2 Cor. 5:9, NKJV). Jesus did everything to please the Father (John 8:29). Without faith we cannot please Him (Heb. 11:6), but without obedience our faith is dead.

“My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth” (1 John 3:18).

“By this we know that we are of the truth, and shall reassure our hearts before Him. For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart and knows everything. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, then we have confidence before God. And whatever we ask, we will receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight. And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another as He commanded us” (1 John 3:19-23).

As we walk in love and obedience to the light and knowledge we’ve been given, we will have a clean and undefiled conscience. It is then that our confidence and assurance before God will be strengthened. Our faith will then take hold of God and we will begin to see answers to our prayers. His power will flow in you and through you. He will infuse you with fresh courage and boldness, and you will bear witness with signs following of the unmistakable evidence of the resurrection and reality of Jesus Christ. Fear and conviction will fall on the unbelievers.

“Meet the conditions,” says the Lord, “and you will see the increased manifestation of My power.”

BROKEN

Time out from my recent Tumultuous 2020s articles. 

Today is my birthday. I am 61. At this writing my assignment for two weeks is to take care of my precious aging mother while my brother and sister-in-law are taking a well deserved vacation in Portugal. My Momma is now 87 and basically immobile and not able to do the simplest tasks like prepare her own meals and bathe or dress herself. She also has diabetes that requires four daily shots of insulin.

Momma with family and in her happy place sleeping.

Even trips to the bathroom must be often assisted by another as she is not too steady with her walker any more. She is no longer independent, but completely dependent on family to care for her. Her condition sort of reminds me of this scripture.

“When you were young, you were able to do as you liked and go wherever you wanted to; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands and others will direct you and take you where you don’t want to go.” (John 21:18)

Although Jesus was actually prophesying of Peter’s martyrdom and how he would glorify God in his death, the same principle of suffering and death is true as we age or as we apply the cross to our souls and mature in Christ.

Here is a personal word the Spirit of the Lord gave to me in my younger days when I had the impetuous tendencies of a young Peter and was hard:

“Give birth to tenderness. Give birth to weeping. Give birth to the compassion of Jesus. Go into the Holy of Holies. Stand in the place where the Son of man has gone, and feel and be touched with the infirmities of man. Go in there, hard man, and be turned to tenderness. Give place to the things of My Spirit that you’ve been denied. Time and time again you’ve come, but you’ve never gone far enough. Worship Me now and love will transform you.” (Prophetic utterance).

TOUCHED WITH OTHERS’ INFIRMITIES

I’ve been touched with the feelings of my Momma’s infirmities. The above photo with family was a few months ago. The one on the couch is from today. In just a few months the decline in her is very noticeable. Her mind is more detached from this world and her body just won’t obey the brain’s commands any more.

The Lord’s mature servants are touched with the agony of the infirmed, and not just their mothers. Because they live near to the heart of Jesus, they identify deeply with the poor, the hurting, the sick and diseased, and the suffering.

Suffering servants give birth to spirit. The more you deny yourself and suffer in the flesh according to the will of God, the more authority you gain in the Spirit. This is the law of Christ (based on love) which is also the law for every minister. Actually, the deeper you go in God, the more painful it can be. As you draw nearer to the heart of God, it’s only fitting that He not only share His joy with you, but His pain and sorrow as well.

The costly oil that sets men free is the kind that’s bought through suffering. Godly suffering for the sake of the gospel and for the sake of broken humanity gives birth to the glory of God.

Please understand me. I believe in claiming God’s great promises of life and health, but the same Bible verses that contain such promises also tell us that our mortal bodies are perishing or decaying day by day (2 Cor. 4:16). The better news is that our spirits are being  renewed daily, and more of Jesus and heaven should fill our hearts as we near our departure and transition.

YOUTH IS WASTED ON THE YOUNG

When you’re young you think you have something to say. You have strong opinions. I know I did. But you know virtually nothing. You don’t have much wisdom. You haven’t lived long enough yet to acquire it. I know, I know. The Bible says not to despise youth and I don’t. I love them and have mentored many of them. However, they have not yet lived long enough to understand many things that can only be understood by experience. They haven’t raised children yet. Most haven’t suffered bitter disappointments yet. They’ve not been overtaken by sorrows, although in today’s world, due to the neglect and immaturity of adults, many of our children and youth suffer indespicable abuses and tragedies that were not meant for them.

Truly youth is wasted on the young. By the time you know a little something and have enough love and wisdom to really help people it’s time to die. Thank God for eternity and for the ages to come where everything will be redeemed and restored.

NARROWING THE BOUNDARIES OF THE FLESH AND ENLARGING THE SPIRIT’S WAY

The more profound the trying of our faith is in trials, the deeper the plow of the cross or the piercing of the Spirit is in our lives.

The saddest footnote is when aged men become bitter in their trials and stubborn and unteachable in their dogmatism. I have a good friend who knows two men who actually believe they don’t have to die – they are both in their 80’s now, and are aging like any 80+ year old, but they believe we are wholly redeemed, dismissing the parts of Scripture that tells us the outward man is perishing day by day. Both are rather headstrong and very lopsided in their marriages. They’ve never been broken.

A true disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ should be growing in tenderness, brokenness, and deep love. As you age, the way of the flesh should be getting narrower while the way of the spirit should be enlarged. For example, when you’re a young believer God allows for many sins, errors, and missteps. You don’t have much light yet. But as you grow in the knowledge of the Word and more light is given He requires more of you.

When you first get saved it’s sort of like an 8 lane highway with rubber guard rails on both sides. Then as you grow in the Lord and you reach true spiritual fatherhood life is like walking a knife edge ridge in the mountains with a straight 1000 foot drop on  either side.

ENTERING THE FINAL QUARTER OF MY RACE

As I enter the final quarter of the race of my mortality, and approaching four decades as a follower of Jesus I feel in a way I know less and less though I know more. I don’t pray long prayers any more, but spend more time in gratitude, adoration, and awe of God’s overwhelming goodness and mercy to me.

When I sit and reflect on the scriptures now for which I have devoted a larger part of my life to in both formal study and devotion I am often deeply moved and marvel at what God has spoken. When I sing and worship my heart skips and cries and laughs more easily. It’s like I’m watching a movie that portrays the pains and sorrows of some character or family that turns to great triumph in the end. The movie Lion was like that for me when the little boy that was lost in Calcutta, India finds his mother and family many years later. I remember weeping aloud in the movie theater at such a glorious ending.

When I see the innumerable pains, disappointments, injustices, woes, needs, heartaches, losses, chronic adversities, dire circumstances, unanswered prayers, and disparities in the lives of humanity and those I love, I feel great sorrow and weep sometimes. In those moments I become more acquainted with the Man who was very acquainted with griefs and sorrows. If we take on His yoke we will know Him in this manner also. Lovely Jesus.

On the other hand, when I experience innumerable, unexplainable, expansive, and explosive manifestations of the Lord’s  goodness and mercies I am filled with gratitude and joy for all He’s done and means to me. When I take a holy glance at His multi-faceted beauty and love I’m overwhelmed and undone. Belly laughs come. Joyful tears run.

I am looking forward in the years remaining in my Earth walk to knowing the unsurpassable greatness of His love that cannot be intellectually known, and looking into the deep living wells of His eternal eyes when I finish the race He’s called me to run.

Friends, make it your lifelong aim to know Him better and to love better. This will not happen without identifying with His pains, sorrows, and sufferings through your brokenness.

THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s: THE DECADE GOD’S UNDERGROUND CHURCH ARISES IN AMERICA

Someone recently asked me what I see for America and the church’s future. Right now, I am seeing the beginning and mushrooming of an evolution of sorts concerning both the nation and the church. Not everything is as it appears.

Here’s a powerful word from the Spirit of God that I’ve shared before:

“Do not look at the TV and larger media ministries to try to understand what I am doing in my body today. They have a part to play, but they are the visible to the eye veneer of the body that people see. Those who are carnal and immature see the outward appearance and are impressed, thinking that these are the height of ministry and where the Spirit is concentrating today. But they are mistaken.

See what I see, many small churches and ministries investing in relationships, walking in love, pouring their lives into each other; this is where the Spirit is moving today. There is a revolution taking place in my body, a revolution of relationships, discipleship, and love. This will affect whole communities and economies.” —John Fenn, Church Without Walls International

I believe God is giving the church, and subsequently the nation, a few more years of grace before a new season dawns. The church will remain under divine discipline until then as God awaits an earnest and heart-felt response. He is separating the wheat from the chaff. There must be a greater distinction between the world, the false and worldly church, and the true disciples of Jesus Christ through the work of the cross. Both His severity and kindness are manifesting simultaneously (Rom. 11:22) as people choose whom they will serve. A large segment of the church is being upbraided for her worldly ways and worldly thinking and her departure from the real faith.

PREPARATION AND JUDGMENT

God is preparing an underground church and a loving, consecrated people against a greater time of trouble and harvest yet to come. This is a necessary work, and more importantly, a manifestation of God’s mercy to the masses, because when the church is judged and cleansed, that is when we have the greatest impact on the world. Conversely, when there is lack of judgment in the church, it means a widespread judgment to the masses and mercy reserved for only a small righteous remnant.

“For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God, and if it begins first with us, what shall the end be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? And ‘If the righteous one is scarcely saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” (1 Pet. 4:17-18).

As a nation, America will either rise from its original God-design purpose for her or become a byword. Although I believe God is using President Trump in amazing ways, he is not the savior of this nation. Let us not be foolish and misplace our trust. A demonic assault has been unleashed in our land, and it is manifesting in an irrational hatred toward everything that is pure, holy, and right.

Let’s not stop watching and praying because we now have a president who is a friend of the church, and the nation seems to be on an economic upswing. Don’t be fooled. There are many enemies of America and the church who are lurking in darkness and want nothing more than the death and destruction of the Christian values and liberties we hold dear. It is the biggest hurdle to socialism, globalism, humanism, and a one-world order.

MANY OF GOD’S PEOPLE ARE YAWNING

Seducing spirits are speaking lies, and doctrines of demons are rampant. Perilous times keep intensifying. Hurricanes, floods and fires rage, and volcanoes are on the brink of eruption. The frequency of the earth’s tremors and quakes is accelerating, too, as creation groans, but still so many seem unfazed. If it doesn’t affect them personally it seems so far away and unreal. In spite of all these disasters the real spirit of repentance is rare these days. What will it take to wake us up?

“My people are yawning at My intentions and will,” says the Lord.

There are still too many hirelings, misguided pastors and ministers who are still entangled in the spirit of the world, dealing with various forms of immorality, pursuing forms of materialism or flirting with some other darling lust. Some are bored in their callings and lack true communion with God. The absence of the presence of God and His holy fear is glaring in many places, and sheep are starving for the true word of life. Holiness has been replaced by hype. Appearance has been exalted over anointing.

On the other hand, it’s been very encouraging to witness struggling pastors of smaller churches who are laboring in obscurity, pressing into God in the Spirit and taking an uncompromising stand for the Lord—while others are growing increasingly discouraged and compromising for growth, or they’re just giving up and quitting. Meanwhile, many pastors of mega-churches who have a platform and means to make an impact on their community and nation have grown comfortable and self-congratulatory in their false success.

We need so much fire and holiness in the pulpits of America right now, but all we seem to be getting is smoke and noise as men are caught up in their own self-importance and image. We have some of the largest churches we’ve ever had in the history of our nation and yet the greatest departure from the true faith. What a paradox! Many professing Christians don’t have solitude with God, hardly read their Bibles any more, or bear any kind of Christian witness, but seem to only depend on  what their favorite elevated preacher says.

And so the moral landslide continues and antichrist legislation keeps forcing its hand in our land while our more visible superstar preachers and slick televangelists boast of their empty paper exploits while reveling in their creature comforts and raking in their millions. My point is that we are barely making any kind of impact on the culture of sin.

I weep at the deception of it all and the many preachers who are actual enemies of the cross of Christ and bound for destruction and perdition.

TANGIBLE FRUIT OR A NUMBERS GAME?

Where are the testimonies from these celebrity ministers of massive repentance resulting in genuine conversions of lasting fruit, mighty baptisms of the Holy Spirit, and notable deliverances from those who have death-gripping addictions? Instead, most of American Christianity glorifies the hype of noisy conferences, emotionally stimulating popcorn services and hipster preachers who never speak of sin, true holiness, and repentance. God has only a faithful remnant who are seeing beyond the surface and who hear the rumblings of a massive change and shaking that is coming.

It’s all a numbers game that some of these mega ministries and churches are playing, and it’s the money that seems to matter most to these men with mega egos. I’m sure a few of them actually love people, but most of them really have no ground strategy. The small guy that’s making a marked difference at a grass roots level is not esteemed nor fully supported.

I know many of my former students and friends who have such a strong anointing to impact our culture, but many in the body of Christ are duped into supporting the popularity of elevated ministries who teach, teach, teach, but can never provide a quantitative account of transformed lives. They have millions of dollars in support but little fruit to show for it. It’s time to address this farce and inequality and reevaluate our giving and direct it toward those who are most worthy.

I know of sacrificial missionaries who work in gospel-starved areas among the unreached, ministries who are saving young victims of sex trafficking, those who are building hospitals for the sick and elderly and orphanages for the fatherless, and Christian organizations who support the persecuted church and families of martyrs. Most of these ministries operate on such a minimal budget in comparison to others with multimillion-dollar budgets who teach those who’ve already been taught. Let’s be honest with ourselves. We are a teaching-saturated culture with minimal tangible fruit.

And what are we teaching? A sugar-coated, feel-good word that keeps the church self-centered, anemic, and ineffective while thinking they are in revival. The power of redemption has been removed from the gospel, and our nation is paying for it. I’m afraid the fake love and tolerance gospel has come home to roost.

SOUND THE ALARM

Do I sound like an alarmist? Perhaps, but a loud alarm is necessary to wake up the sleepy, yawning church.

The book of Revelation is alarming to me when I read of the death, destruction, and judgment of the nations. The Bible is not all peace and happiness, but full of warnings and casualties. And such an alarm must be sounded in this hour if we are going to give birth to real change.

History remembers mighty moves of God, not megachurches and mega-ministries who are not known in hell. Are there any great mega churches and mega ministries? Perhaps a few, but not many. I’m afraid most of them have only added to the deception, providing an appearance of false success—a facade to hide all that’s wrong with the American church with most having no impact on the culture of sin.

May God’s underground church arise in America.

THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s: NOT ENOUGH HATE YET FOR AMERICAN MINISTERS AND CHURCHES

In recent times in high-profile media interviews, too many celebrity ministers have been guilty of blurring the lines between truth and error, right and wrong, and sin and righteousness. Lately it seems that when put on the spot in a public platform and asked a direct and pointed question concerning the great moral issues of 21st century America, such as homosexuality and abortion, ministers have turned coward and given some yellow-bellied, political response. This constant compromising to avoid controversy is creating much damage, not only to the world, which is looking for a clear sound from preachers, but also to believers who have little discernment or are growing tired of ambiguity.

For example, one very influential and popular minister who has millions of followers was asked if homosexuality was wrong, and his general response was that his views were evolving. Evolving? That’s like saying the Bible is evolving.

Another well-known so-called pastor was asked if abortion was sinful, and he offered this half-baked response: “That’s the kind of conversation we would have finding out your story, where you’re from, what you believe. I mean, God is the judge,” at which point the secular audience broke into raucous applause.

When the world claps for you concerning your definition of abortion, I can tell you it was a bad job. You just gave them a license to continue justifying murder of the most innocent and to practice and promote what’s convenient. You had an opportunity to allow God to use you to bring conviction, and instead, you offered them false comfort. You had a glorious chance to smite their conscience, and instead, you soothed it. You were given a large platform to smash the godless altar of abortion, and instead, you kept it erect.

The truth is, your ratings and popularity were more important to you than speaking the plain truth with wisdom and grace. You were granted an open door to speak the word of God and please the Lord, but instead, you cowered and bowed to the fear of man and pleased the devil. I’m sorry, but this is shameful and gutless for a minister of the gospel.

In a time of darkness and moral confusion in our nation, you could’ve brought light and clarity, but you actually contributed to the darkness. In fact, the light you think is in you is not light at all, but it is the greatest of darkness.

“If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” (Matt. 6:23b).

You received your temporal reward—the smile, and applause and approval of men. But you lost your eternal reward and favor with whom it counts the most, the Lord and Judge of all the earth. You are disqualified from being a steward of the mysteries of God.

THE GODLY SUFFER PERSECUTION

Jesus taught us that if we live godly, we will suffer persecution.

“Yes, and all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution” (2 Tim. 3:12).

Jesus told us we would be hated by the world. Since the world loves you and claps for you, what does that say about you?

“If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own. But because you are not of the world, since I chose you out of the world, the world therefore hates you” (John 15:19).

Jesus, our Lord and Master, was hated (John 15:18). I don’t think many ministers understand that. Read this penetrating and poignant quote by R.C. Sproul that I’ve referred to before:

“Holiness provokes hatred. The greater the holiness, the greater the human hostility toward it. It seems insane. No man was ever more loving than Jesus Christ. Yet even His love made people angry. His love was a perfect love, a transcendent and holy love, but His very love brought trauma to people. This kind of love is so majestic we can’t stand it.”

It’s grievous to the Lord and His angels bristle at such namby-pamby minister masqueraders who will not walk in the Lord’s truth and authority. They make the lukewarm and religious crowd happy but less holy. These types of ministers need to be held accountable by someone in their network or eldership circle for misrepresenting the Word of God and making abominable behavior sound so respectful. Either that, or they need to get out of the ministry and be a politician or find another occupation that fits their slick and flimflam demeanor. In this age of advanced technology, truth travels quickly around the globe but so does error and falsehood. Thus, more accountability is needed.

When “ministers” compromise and cower to prevailing world culture on a major media platform, I repeat, they need to be called out by someone in their network. Biblical church discipline needs to be applied. At least two admonitions should be given for repentance, and if they remain unrepentant and without remorse, they should be rejected or excommunicated according to Scripture, and the entire church world should be made aware of it, until true repentance comes forth followed by a period of restoration. This way, the leaven of their heresy will not spread.

“If a man is a heretic, after the first and second admonition reject him” (Titus 3:10, KJ21).

The majority of the body of Christ has no understanding of this sort of biblical church discipline because it is hardly practiced and sorely lacking in most of today’s professing church.

This lack of accountability and do-nothingness is at the root of many of our problems in the body of Christ because of our failure to understand judgment. As one friend of mine said recently, you do not get to talk like a compromising politician about homosexuality and abortion in front of pagans and then act like Paul the apostle on CBN or TBN. Some of these “Christian” talking heads need to grow a backbone, eat some spinach, or something. Forgive me, but we have far too many cowards and frauds who are grossly misrepresenting the Lord.

It is impossible to find any preacher, prophet, or reformer in the Bible or throughout history who has had any real power with God who was not hated or who did not have enemies. When there is little hate, that usually means there is little impact and little power. 

Jesus said it this way: Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for so did their fathers to the false prophets” (Lk. 6:26).

My point is there is not enough hate for American preachers and prophets right now because of gross compromise. It is one of the greatest indictments against the church in this hour. That has got to change for the moral landscape of our nation to shift and make a serious turn toward righteousness. Lack of persecution usually means lack of power.

The gospel by nature is controversial and offensive. We must stop removing the offense from the cross (The Real Gospel).

THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s: FURTHER PERSECUTION FOR CHRISTIANS AND JEWS

Think about how much our country has changed since the turn of the century (millennium). Think about how much it has changed just since Obama was in office. I got news for you. The rapid changes we have seen in the last few years are not coming to a halt anytime soon. In a word, this rapidity of change will continue to increase and mark these last days before Jesus returns.

At the peak of these changes is the intensity of the persecution of Christians. There is a reason for the great disparity between the recent media coverage on the massacre of Muslims in places like New Zealand and the killing of Christians in places like Nigeria. The writing is on the wall. Christians are hated and that hatred will only increase.

There’s also a reason why the larger percentage of the nations despise the tiny powerful nation of Israel. Jews are also hated and that hatred will continue to increase.

One of the ways persecution will increase in the West is in the form of spying through artificial intelligence. The same way the Chinese government tracks Christians there and keeps a profile on each of them will followed in America and the West. All the pieces are in place for this to escalate in the next few years. Christians will be the most targeted, not only by the government, but by private companies as well.

Organizations like Amazon, Google and Facebook are already tracking your life from the sites you visit to the purchases you make, and their algorithms help companies advertise and market their products and services. They know where you live, and they know your occupation. No harm has been done yet, but that will change as Christians in the West draw the line in the sand between righteousness and wickedness. What has been used for mostly good will now be used for evil as the government will team up with private companies to spy deeper into people’s lives. The truly righteous will be prey in that day.

Watch out for more laws to be established through our Congress that will show partiality and steal Christian liberties. The courts will disregard these liberties and determine more and more what is offensive. Homosexuality, including transgenderism, and Islam will continue to be at the front and center of controversy as leftists seek to clamp down on Christians, churches and true conservatives. When anything goes awry, especially in our economy, true Christians and conservatives will be blamed.

Christian and Jewish persecution will increase even in the West.

LIES

It is obvious that honest journalism is at an all-time low. The media lies. Those who pledge allegiance to Islam lie. Sinners, especially those with their own agenda, will lie and lie. Lying or bearing false witness has been done to God’s people throughout the centuries and was something the religious leaders did to both Jesus (Mark 14:56-59) and Stephen (Acts 6:13). The same shall be done in ever-increasing effectiveness against true Christians in these last days even in the West. The media will take words out of context and pervert what was truly said. Global martyrdom will continue to rise, and we may see it here in the West sooner rather than later, because if you can’t change someone’s faith, you kill them.

Technology now has the ability to transform any video or audio of a person’s words and make it seem as though he is saying words he didn’t even say. The general populace will believe it because they are seeing it and hearing it on video. Christians will be blamed for things they never said or did.

NO NEED TO FEAR

True believers in Jesus who are consecrated to Him need not fear when they witness these things coming to pass in greater measure. Those who seek first God’s kingdom will prosper in this hour and have peace beyond human understanding, while those in darkness shall continue to stumble and be full of fear and great perplexity. Light will dawn on the path of the righteous as darkness and gross darkness fill the land.

These are the days to get your house and priorities in order. These are days of cleansing and consecration. New vows of separation from the things of this world shall be made by many who are presently in darkness. The household of faith will become more and more precious to those who have truly forsaken the love of this world. In that day, our relationship with those of kindred spirits and precious-like faith will be our greatest wealth. There will be great miracles and divine intervention in the lives of believers who place their trust in the Lord. The coming crisis will only minimally affect them.

However, those who put their trust in the systems of this world will have more heartache and trouble, and for some, this is what it will take for true repentance to work in their hearts and surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

To be warned is to be forearmed. May wisdom teach us to build our house on the rock of Jesus Christ. It is only those who prepare for the coming storm and days of adversity and persecution who shall not be shaken.

THE CORRUPTION OF AMERICAN CHRISTIANITY AND THE EVIL AGENDA TO DESTROY AMERICA (PART II)

Much of the information below is taken from the documentary movie Enemies Within The Church, to be released soon. Part 1 was posted two weeks ago.

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light” (Eph. 5:11-13).

True Christians don’t really fit into America’s two party system because it’s too uneven. But we must do all we can to stand for truth, righteousness, and justice in this very evil day where all that is pure and decent is under assault. We must be enlightened to the extremely overt efforts to infiltrate and advance the liberal Leftist antichrist agenda.

The reason their agenda seems to be advancing is because it is happening in what most people consider safe environments and Christian institutions. Their talking points are deceptive because they are dressed with Christian veneer. They are hijacking every aspect of our culture and pushing it toward socialism, but that has never been God’s divine design and purpose for America.

HOW THE LEFT OPERATES

The Left operates through the “peace” movement, the “black lives matter” movement, the women’s movement, the labor movement etc., and they’ve infiltrated the Church by dressing it up with Christian rhetoric for many years. I heard from a reliable source and also read that the Communist-Socialist agenda has been infiltrating the Roman Catholic church and the mainstream Lutheran and Episcopalian churches since the 1920s and 30s. But what is most shocking and disturbing is the heavy penetration into the evangelical churches over the last few years, including southern Baptists, and as I stated  in part 1,  organizations like World Vision have also been co-opted by the Leftist movement. What’s interesting is that the Left wing Maoist press used to hate World Vision with a passion because of their highly conservative stance and evangelical Christian charity, but now they love them and are partnering with them. Hmmm…

Furthermore, within the gospel coalition and southern Baptist convention there have been many findings of George Soros direct-linked funds and ties to people within these organizations. I know it’s hard for some to believe, but doing your own research will prove this out. For example, Jim Wallis is one that is tied to him and has attempted to make homosexuality more acceptable and mainstream—all funded by Soros, an atheist. He is a complete evil menace to true Christianity, and churches should have nothing to do with him.

Of course, true Christians would say that they want nothing to do with Soros, but again what they don’t understand is that the method Soros and his minions use is to utilize people that the Christian community knows, respects, and trusts. Name recognition is a large part of their deception to subvert and co-opt people of faith.

Some professing Christians are interested in global warming, ending white privilege, supporting black lives matter, etc. What they fail to realize is these are all Marxist-type programs and word-construct that they use have nothing to do with the gospel or the kingdom of God. This is how they are gradually moving these Christians and American voters to the Left, which will end up destroying this country as we know it unless this process is reversed. Christians who apply their faith to their politics are the great barrier to the Left, but that seems to be changing as they are now the target.

The aforementioned names in part 1 like Tim Keller, Jim Wallis, and others like Russell Moore and those associated with the gospel coalition are injecting 95% truth into the Christian camp, but it’s the 5% rat poison that is slowly diminishing truth and power in the Church. However, their pace has quickened since President Trump’s election, and it’s easy to see how they’ve ramped up and doubled down on their efforts. They’ve gotten more brazen, too and are getting away with much more, like telling Christians not to be political and that they don’t need to be in a two party system. The more righteous votes they can take away from us the better it will serve their global socialist agenda.

THE BASHING OF TRUE CONSERVATISM

At the same time some of these socialist adherents bash conservative Christians in national newspapers like the NY Times and Washington Post. It’s a Left wing movement that bashes true conservatives, glorifies their own liberal agenda, while encouraging Christians to remain neutral. At this point, however, neutrality is sinful and a traitor to the highest cause of the gospel and the saving of the God-given sovereignty and purpose of our nation.

Dr. Russell Moore leads The Southern Baptist ERLC (Evangelical Religious Liberty Commission) that used to be much more conservative and reliable, but not any more. For example, they conducted a meeting right before the 2018 mid-term elections on how to combat conservatism. People that are connected to Moore have written many anti-conservative articles and have made it cool and hip to be an anti-Christian conservative. Young pastors are coming out of seminary thinking it’s cool to hate America and bash on conservatism. Hundreds of them listen to people like Moore and think he’s great, but the truth is that Moore was actually once a staffer for a Democratic Congressman.

The point of this discussion is not to champion the Republican party for there are many Rinos (republicans in name only) now in office who are not true conservatives nor Christians. It’s not a matter of party but principle, truth, and righteous values. Christians must be enlightened as to the subversive unchristian teaching that is going on to co-opt people into voting for a hidden liberal, global, and socialist agenda or remaining neutral. That is the crime and one of the reasons for this article. Have you noticed how many professional sports teams are choosing not to visit the White House to be honored for their championships? They hate true conservatism and they hate Trump.

EXPOSING THE LIES AND DECEPTION

The Left are quite adept at co-opting and twisting language and terminology to make them mean something different. One of the things they are trying to do now is redefine what pro-life is. They’re now saying that it doesn’t mean you oppose abortion or the protection of the unborn, but that it is equivalent to taking care of the poor. I kid you not. I had a discussion recently on Facebook with a young naive Christian woman that was saying the same thing.

To be pro-life now also means to care about climate change and the world we live in—to be concerned about the environment and so forth. This line of thinking is spreading, and its one of the ways the Christian base is being neutralized. Homosexuality is also being redefined now as same sex attracted Christians and not LBGT. This is another one of the liberal Left efforts to ramp up acceptance of homosexuality in churches.

There’s a religious coup going on in the Southern Baptist ERLC. As I stated, they used to be one of the most conservative organizations but are being co-opted by the Left and swinging that way.

It’s not just the liberals who are doing this but others who are connected to hard core Marxists/Communists like Jim Wallis. You can trace these operations back to the Communist Party USA, and the Democratic Socialists of America, who have people planted in high positions all throughout many theological seminaries. There are also several black pastors who are members of the religious commission of the Communist Party USA.

There are others who are members of the National Council of Churches, and the Russian Orthodox Church, which by the way, is a tool of the KGB. I know for many this might seem difficult to believe because it runs pretty sinister and deep. But this is an organized Marxist program to pervert and corrupt American Christianity to take this nation down from the inside. Wolves have infiltrated Christianity and are baiting and alluring God’s people away from the truth of the gospel in order to destroy them. Preachers are not only to preach the real gospel but courageously and aggressively defend it. And the only way to really do that is by exposing the lies and deception of the liberal Leftist, global, and socialist agenda.

THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s: THE DECADE THE CHURCH GETS OUT OF BED

The reality of a word from the Lord came to my wife in a dream just a couple of years ago. Contained within this dream is a vital word for the body of Christ in this hour—both corrective and encouraging that will bring hope to many.

In the dream, my wife was in bed and couldn’t get up. The same condition was true for the pastors and church we were ministering for, who also couldn’t get out of bed (spiritually speaking). My wife noted that she and these pastors possessed overwhelming strength and only needed to get up.

A large segment of the Charismatic/Pentecostal Church is slumbering right now—under-utilized, under-achieving in the Spirit, not living up to its potential, power, and effectiveness. There’s been a wasting of God’s spiritual resources, and a wasting of His power. But there’s a new birthing coming, not according to the old order or planting, but now there is a new God-birthing that will flow from the inward parts of the belly (man’s spirit).

In the dream my wife was pregnant and the doctors wanted to perform a C-section and cut her open, but someone said she did not have to give birth the old way as before. Instead she could give birth the God way from the inward parts of the belly, signifying in the Spirit. At that moment beginning from her navel there was an expansion of her belly that blossomed out.

Interpretation: We have super strength in the Spirit, but only need to wake up and get up. The Church will give birth to the true works of God in the coming decade. 

SECOND PART OF THE DREAM

The dream then moved to a church service where I was preaching. A group of people sitting in the back of the building were not engaged in what was being preached, but instead were thinking and talking about the outing in a park that had been planned afterwards. They wanted to play, have social time, and were given to entertainment. Their minds were not on the Lord, and what He was saying and doing in the service.

This speaks of the general condition of many in the Church in this hour. The minds of people are swirling with activity like tuning into different channels every few seconds looking for another thrill. It’s the nature of the carnal mind which leads to death, while the spiritual mind leads to life and peace (Rom. 8:6).

This is the reason Paul wrote:

“Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light” (Eph. 5:14).

This verse was written to believers. Apparently as indicated by the verses before (1-13), these believers were walking in immorality, covetousness, idolatry and such, and Paul was admonishing them not to walk in darkness and in spiritual deadness but in the light. Later on he tells them to “be filled with the Spirit” (vv. 18-19) and to “be strong in the Lord” (Eph. 6:10).

IT’S TIME TO WAKE UP AND GET OUT OF BED

It is time to get out of bed and engage in the Lord’s work and agenda. This engaging begins with our communion with God and living a life of praise and thanksgiving, singing/speaking Spirit-inspired songs from the heart. Read Ephesians 5 & 6 in context. The infilling we receive will affect our hearts and our lives, and will lead to healthy marriages (Eph. 5:22-33), healthy parent-child relationships (Eph. 6:1-4), and healthy employer-employee relationships (Eph. 6:5-9). We’ve underestimated the impact of a Spirit-filled life according to Ephesians 5:18-19.

I’m a revivalist by calling, but the revival my heart is longing to see is not one that can be captured on social media—but rather one that is lived out in the daily lives of believers, symbolized by a consecration to the will of God resulting in a life of prayer, fasting, giving, and godly relationships, marriages and families. There is a divine dissatisfaction working in the hearts of God’s true people in this day that are no longer content with the performance and production of professional and sensational ministry, often led by self-appointed apostles and prophets screaming to be heard and bombarding us with yet another headline of a carnally motivated and fleshly embellished prophecy. Social media oozes with such and it actually entertains people and feeds their emotions with yet another ear-tickling yak-and-quack. This has created a vacuum in the hearts of genuine believers for authentic Christianity. This has escalated and is leading us into a current move among the body of Christ for relationship-based Christianity, love, discipleship and the caring one for another.

What good is it to shout, holler, clap, dance and hear another sermon on Sunday morning if our daily lives, relationships, marriages and children are a mess? What good does it do to participate in Christian conferences and events and listen to the latest greatest teaching or revelation or prophecy if we don’t possess a daily life of communion with God in both Word and Spirit? How will our lives count for eternity if we don’t have God’s plan for what we are doing?

Let’s stop fooling ourselves. Let’s wake up and get out of bed and put on the strength of the Lord and start living according to the potential and effectiveness that we possess inwardly in Christ.

THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s: THE DESTRUCTIVE MIND-SET THAT FUELS EVIL

There’s a destructive mind-set in the church today that has fueled the evil in America. It is simply this: God doesn’t care about the Democratic Party or the Republican Party. He doesn’t care about politics.

For this reason, many Christians don’t vote, and many vote for men and women who hold to corrupt values. And I’m sorry, but many are just ignorant of what is going on in our nation and what is at stake.

Let’s make this real easy to understand. How many care about the type of doctor, surgeon or dentist you have? How many care about the person or people who are teaching your children in school, coaching them in sports or babysitting them?

Would you feel confident in a dentist’s chair if you knew the dentist working on you was a secret murderer? Would you feel secure having open-heart surgery performed by a married man who has an affair with a new woman every other week? Would you feel warm and cozy if a pervert or a child molester was teaching or coaching your child?

Why are we so sensitive when it comes to our family and us personally, but not so much when it comes to corrupt politicians whom we endorse and vote for and will run our country amuck and make horrid decisions that affect us personally for many years to come? It has a great trickle-down effect who we vote for, especially in the 21st century where everything is so blatant and in your face now. We reached a breaking point in the last election, and we are in the time of the greatest political and moral crisis our nation has seen. Can you not see and discern that politicians are given power to make decisions that affect us personally and determine our future?

They will not only influence the way our government runs and the state of our economy and our money, but public institutions of learning and church houses are affected, and most importantly, the laws that are legislated that will either exalt righteousness or evil in our nation for many years to come.

Somebody will take your hard-earned money and use it for their ungodly agenda. Someone is already spending it and getting richer. Many who will run for office do not care about our national debt and creating another great depression. They want to give away free American citizenship, free American health care, and free education to everyone who can break through our borders. And they will make sure you pay for it. How can that not stir you to action?

Worst of all, politicians are voting on laws that will use your tax money to indoctrinate your children with homosexuality, transgenderism, socialism, God and religion. How can you continue to be indifferent?

If politicians and their political parties, the media, Hollywood, and academia can convince people on these issues, then they can convince them on anything else, including the rejection of the gospel. This is the reason many youth abandon Jesus and the church after they leave home and go to college.

Did you know, based on the politics of Twitter, Facebook, Google and other liberal and Democrat-run organizations and companies, that it’s “hate speech” if you say Islam is not a peaceful religion or homosexuality is a sin or transgenderism is wrong? But they are perfectly fine with banning Chick- Fil-A at airports or removing a monument cross or a nativity scene at a public place or just harassing Christians. Can you not see that voting for politicians with strong core moral values and truth and righteousness affects you personally, your family, children and grandchildren? But the change is gradual and so subtle, like the proverbial frog in boiling water. What one generation tolerates, the next generation celebrates. We are seeing it all around us.

Politics and politicians continually make decisions that affect these issues. If you love God and you love people, you will be passionately interested in what values and principles are being legislated by our governmental leaders. This is politics, my friends. How can you say God does not care about politics?

As I examine things in the political realm since Donald Trump has become president, here is something I see. In recent attempts from the Democratic Party to unseat president Trump and run him out of office, I have noticed the dominant influence of the dirtiest politics I’ve ever witnessed in my lifetime and how the FBI, the attorney general and FISA court judges all fell under the sway of this extreme avarice for political power.

We have sunk to new levels of “low” evil and the slimiest kind of wickedness and corruption when you add media power to magnify and propagate political power in order to destroy a sitting president. We have moved further and further away from the position of a party that offers to provide the best leadership to truly benefit the people into a political party that is willing to overthrow its own freedom to be in power. God help us!

We need to be praying and looking to the Lord for the best leadership for this country and stop thinking we can do this without Him. This is an early reminder to get engaged in the political process and let the Lord guide you in your vote in 2020. Look carefully at your candidate and make sure that what they stand for politically and personally is what best represents your values and the direction you want for the country.

This is not about domesticating or politicizing Jesus into our perceived “cause.” I am well aware that His kingdom is not of this world, and it is not an either-or polarity. It is a third way. But He loves righteousness and hates iniquity, and we should live the same way.

As a preacher stated recently, don’t fall into the trap of making an artificial divide between spirituality and politics. The devil is intensely spiritual, and he loves to infiltrate and possess media, entertainment, institutions of learning and politics to promote his evil cause and make the broad road to destruction even broader for our nation’s people. Let’s move toward and take the fight to him, and let our salt and light be evident in this most critical midnight hour for our nation.

THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s: IT’S TIME TO END THE LIBERAL LEFTIST MOVEMENT

The Leftists hate our Independence Day July 4th celebrations. Yesterday Facebook and Google censored some pictures of American flags and portraits of American heroes and fallen soldiers. They put the darkest spin possible on these national holidays. They even display anger toward President Trump for wanting to celebrate the 4th of July. My brain freezes on that one.  

The writing is on the wall. We have less than two years to buy up more time for a national miracle and the restoration of America’s destiny. This is not overreach or a hyper-dramatic statement. It is reality.

The Leftists heap disdain on the sacrifice of heroes.  They rail against every iota of the American patriotism. Most of all, they lie about our history, our Founding Fathers, and they deny the role of Christianity in the founding of our nation. They’ve reached the point of desperation and will do anything for votes in 2020.

For example, at this writing we are witnessing a human tragedy at our southern border. Dr. James Dobson made a trip down there recently and said this about it:

This is all happening because politicians have created a system that turns these migrants into political pawns. “This is the system set up by a liberal Congress and judges. It is a well-known fact that President Obama’s administration established many of these unworkable policies, and Congress is steadfastly unwilling to change them. Every effort at reform has been overridden or ignored. It is set in stone. Democrats want massive numbers of immigrants who will someday become voters. Some Republicans support the policies because they want cheap labor for agricultural purposes. The border could be fixed, but there are very few in authority who seem to care. Dobson Tours Borders

Doesn’t that just make your righteous blood boil? South Africa is experiencing a national crisis due to this same kind of idiocy. The idiots are the people who allow it.

In political jargon, “useful idiot” is a term for people perceived as propagandists for a cause whose goals they are not fully aware of, and who are used cynically by the leaders of the cause. The Leftists are successfully brainwashing the “useful idiots” for their globalism cause.

Globalism isn’t just a word. And this border crisis is not just another random event.

Many people do not realize that the primary goal of globalism is the breaking down of strong, sovereign nations, followed by a global catastrophe. A global government can not be established while America, Europe, Russia, China, India, and other countries survive as they are today. The plan is to break things down at the top with Western nations, especially America. 

America is the world’s biggest consumer. As long as our economy is functioning, the rest of the world’s industrial nations also do well. If they break down America, all the other nations will begin to crumble, and the support nations will have nowhere to sell their raw materials.

In many ways, present-day America reminds me of the sinking of the Titanic when musicians played their final song before succumbing to their death. We’ve had so many opportunities to right the ship, but we keep drinking the vile Kool-Aid that our wicked politicians and corrupt and unprincipled media are serving us while puncturing the ship with more holes. Indeed, we’ve become a ship of fools. We’ve had plenty of reasons to do something different, but instead we’ve defiantly said no to righteousness and national sovereignty at nearly every turn. Groaning always increases under the rule of wicked politicians.

President Trump is not our savior but his election victory in 2016 tells me that the people of this country have had enough of the establishment. They are waking up to the global liberal agenda and many don’t want it. For clear evidence look at the large turnouts and great excitement at Trump’s rallies.

“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked rule, the people mourn” (Prov. 29:2).

In 2008 and 2012, millions of professing Christians either voted for Obama or did not vote at all. Professing Christians who voted for such a wicked and evil man (until he is saved that is what he is) still need to repent because it was his administration that opened the door wide to greater filth, evil, hatred, division, violence, and perversion in our our nation.

  • You can’t vote that way anymore without being an ally to Satan and evil.
  • You can no longer wink at sin and endorse wicked politicians.
  • You can’t remain silent while full term baby killing is now made legal.
  • You can’t stick your nose up at God, whom the Democratic National Committee has rejected.
  • You can’t continue to endorse darkness, death, and destruction—open borders, sanctuary cities, abortion, anti-Israel agendas, same-sex marriage, socialism, and globalism.

Stop sowing to the wind if you want to stop reaping the whirlwind.

If you did it ignorantly there is mercy, but if willingly, you’re on the wrong side of God’s righteousness and justice.

LACK OF CHARACTER AND DISCERMENT IS THE ISSUE

The problem is a large segment of professing American Christians lack character and discernment, and they endorse the same.

John Wooden observed, “Your character is what you really are. Your reputation is only what others think you are.” Poor discernment and the failure to see things as they really are is colored by the condition of one’s heart.

Many have a reputation of being someone great in public, but who they are privately and at home is who they really are. Many need to repent because their walk does not match their talk. Hypocrisy is the church’s subtle leaven.

So many of those who profess Jesus Christ continually vote for the Democratic Party. How can you justify that when they are now riding fully with Satan? Today, I dare call them “the demonic party.”

Stop voting for criminals to fill governmental positions in our land. How can so many have such a high tolerance for the corruption and tyranny they represent? It’s pure madness and defies logic.

Godless Hollywood and the snake-oiled media will keep endorsing evil. It’s about time you stop believing their lies.

Why do you even give the time of day to Trump haters and networks like CNN who lie continually and poison you with fake news?

THE ROOT IS HYPOCRISY

Again, the problem is in the church world. We have too many hypocrites who tell us they love Jesus out of one side of their mouth while casting votes for those who represent the devil’s agenda. Please educate yourselves.

When you vote for any politician, be it senator, governor, mayor, congressman or representative who is a baby killer, a God hater, an enemy of Israel and pervert-promoter—among many other evils, you are one giant-sized hypocrite. You are serving  the devil, and not the living God.

When you’re ruled by materialism, you don’t have a moral compass. When you believe the lying media, your judgment is blinded. When you’re a slave to man, God is not your master. When you don’t fear God, you have no discernment. Then the lines become blurred between the holy and the profane, the clean and unclean, and the good and evil.

This is the problem in America. Elections mirror who we are as a nation and identify the lack of a true moral base in our culture and a large majority of the professing church.

When you, as a professing Christian, are swimming with the tide of pop culture and following the most popular TV preachers who cannot call homosexuality a sin, who cannot speak of the cross and the blood, who will never say the word “repent,” who endorsed Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for president, who are motivated by publicity and popularity and earthly gain, you are in the devil’s grip.

Electing wicked and evil politicians for president is nearly equivalent to absolving Satan from his sins and letting him into the White House to rule our nation.

APPEALING TO LOGIC

Why do many African-American professing Christians keep their Democratic party affiliation in spite of the pure evil in it? Have you repented and switched your allegiance? Or will you keep voting for your favorite party and your darling promoters of evil, same sex marriage, and baby killers?

How can you commit such a blasphemous act and vote for the killers of your own race? Unborn black children are being aborted more than any other race, and you vote for it, while at the same time saying, “Black lives matter.” You are the epitome of hypocrites.

If you are black, why did you vote for Hillary in the last election when she admires Margaret Sanger and defends Planned Parenthood who want to abort as many black babies as possible? Do you realize that most of those abortion clinics are in black neighborhoods?

If you are a professing Christian, why do you keep endorsing wicked men who are full of greed, have no love for the truth, and no fear of God (Ex. 18:21)?

Set aside Christian conscience for a moment, and let’s just use a little logic.

  • If you are a veteran, in the military or closely related to a military member, why are you voting for a party whose secretary of state left those men to die in Benghazi and had the nerve to lie about it over and over again? They called for help but the help was told to stand down.
  • If you have a factory job, why are you endorsing a party whose members supported the Trans-Pacific Partnership? Before Trump, factory workers were being laid off because jobs were going overseas. So many unfavorable deals were made with China. Now Democrats are welcoming open borders and illegals to get benefits to be paid with your tax money.
  • If you are poor, why do you endorse the Democratic party, when most of them support Wall Street and all the big banks? Big banks keep poor people poor through destroying the poor man’s credit by allowing medical bills and collections to affect your credit scores so you can pay higher interest rates than the rich—taking much of the little money you earn.
  • If you are a woman, how can you endorse the Democratic Party when scandals of past presidents such as Bill Clinton’s rape victims were swept under the rug, including a little girl who was raped? His wife Hillary, acting as an accomplice, defended the rapist and then laughed about it later, knowing he was guilty. Have you ever thought of how forgiving our nation was of President Clinton’s sexual escapades done in the White House with that intern while being so unforgiving of President Trump’s same type of sins done years ago while out of office? Such hypocrisy!
  • If you carry a gun, or believe in the Constitution, how can you affiliate with a party who wants to eliminate the NRA, take your guns, and abolish the second amendment?
  • If you even breathe, why would you be affiliated and endorse the Democratic party who murder the most innocent?

CIVIL WAR, PERSECUTION IMMINENT UNLESS THINGS CHANGE

And you who say God is still in control, save your speech. They said the same thing in Hitler’s day when he was killing 6 million Jews. God is in control of those who have given Him control. He is in control of those who have submitted to Him. To be silent, passive, and neutral now is to be an enemy of God.

Unless a nation of useful idiots wake up and come to their senses, we are headed for a civil war. There are far too many unreasonable and wicked men within our shores and in positions of authority.

Barring supernatural intervention brought on by earnest prayer, sincere repentance, and the mercy of God, the church may eventually have to go underground, at least in some states. California is now trying to make the Christian counseling of homosexuals and transgenders a crime. If this passes (many believe it won’t, at least this time), the next step would be to make the Bible illegal. But you know what? That may not be such a bad thing, because then curious young people may actually start reading it. And since the fastest-growing church in the world is still the underground church of China and now Iran, where the Bible is condemned, hope remains.

Persecution tends to bring out the best of every church and every Christian. Persecution tends to separate the real Christian from the false, the goats from the sheep, the tares from the wheat, and the good fish from the bad fish. And that’s a good thing. We don’t have much persecution that is testing us yet in our nation. Most believers think it’s bold and fearless just to call abortion and homosexuality a sin. I’m sorry but that is not considered a heroic act. It only proves how wimpy much of the church has become.

So what can the American church start doing now in this season of reprieve and opportunity?

Start preaching a Biblical gospel that actually delivers people from ignorance and evil, and strengthens their foundation of truth and righteousness. Stop all the self-esteem and success-in-life talks. Preach the word with fire in your belly.

Start getting excited about the things that excite Jesus like the actual gospel of the kingdom and His commission to make disciples. Stop getting excited over emotional experiences and stimuli that tickles your soul but is no threat to the kingdom of darkness.

Quit listening to celebrity preachers who tout their titles of Apostle, Prophet, and Bishop and who always seem to have a “word from God” that came from their latest conversation with an angel or a visit to heaven. Who of us is not tired of hearing the latest formula for activating blessings?

Let the uncompromisingly righteous band together and bond together as never before. Be strengthened and be emboldened. Act like it’s now or never to save the Titanic. Brace yourselves. The Democrats will go crazy, and all hell will break loose if Trump wins a second term.

For those who are kingdom-minded and eternity-minded, our best days are still ahead. Let us seize the opportunity of a lifetime. We can save the Church and the nation. But understand that if we finally preach the real gospel and Christians still vote Democrat, then they didn’t really repent.

It is now that the nation’s “useful idiots” may finally awaken when they realize that the Democratic party and the Rinos (Republicans In Name Only) are the ones who are putting holes in the mighty Titanic in their attempts to sink it.

Onward Christian soldiers.

THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s AND ABORTION: SATANIC PRIEST GOVERNORS FILLING UP THE CUP OF JUDGMENT

I’m going to say it. The far-left Democratic party has become Satan’s pawn. When New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law full-term abortion among a gleeful group of other politicians at the beginning of the year, outrage across the nation should have gone through the roof.

Then to add insult to injury, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, represented his evil party well when he basically stated (paraphrased): “If a mother is in labor—the infant would be delivered and would be kept comfortable and would be resuscitated according to the mother’s wishes, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

Outrage in the form of riots and protests should be flowing like waves across America after such blasphemous words from what has become a party of sadistic savages led by Herodian-type governors. This is the final straw. Whatever party you avow your allegiance to (there are many on both sides who are gutless, spineless, and yellow-bellied cowards), you can no longer be neutral.

I do not apologize for my plain speech. To be silent now is to be allied with the murder of the most harmless, defenseless, and innocent among us. If furious and righteous indignation does not fill your soul, I’m sorry, but you are not worth a nickel. Neutrality is now sinful. If leaders, ministers, and pastors who have platforms play this down in soft-toned politically-correct  speech or choose to remain silent, they are to be pitied and should be placed on Satan’s list of prized traitors. They are Judas with a kiss—betrayers of the Son of God and life. They are of the anti-Christ spirit who has called for the release of Barabbas. Their conscience is seared.

Decent Americans and churches of every denomination must do something now and act as a unified voice of condemnation across this land. Killing babies in the womb is murder, but killing them after they’re born is the most wicked, filthy, inhumane, brutal, sadistic, and barbaric act in American history. Do you think for a moment God Almighty will just wink at this and not demonstrate His severity on our nation? Let all those who name Christ’s Name depart from any form of this iniquity and disassociate with those who approve it, for too many who are called by Christ’s Name are pro-abortion.

We will see massive destruction on a scale never heretofore seen in our nation if we roll our heads and turn the other way. When the scales of injustice are tipped so far in Satan’s direction, you can bet heaven will respond. We will see unimaginable disasters and death across our nation. God will bring down what is left of the walls of protection in America.

Consider the recent behavior of this nation just this year:

  • Remove God from everything we do and now even our swearing-in with oaths.
  • Call a border wall immoral, but call killing our most innocent moral and a woman’s right.
  • Refuse to build a border wall or even negotiate. Instead, shut down our government and go on vacation while others suffer for your irresponsible, childlike behavior.
  • Scream for illegal immigration and sanctuary cities so pushers, rapists, thugs and every kind of criminal can have refuge, but use nice, polite speech for allowing delivered babies to die on hospital tables.
  • Gun down our police officers in barbaric, lawless fashion, but praise violence and out-of-control wackos.

Democrats are now the party of death, delusion, and destruction. They continually commit blasphemous acts such as:

  • Take away our guns so school, street, and club shootings can stop, but don’t you dare use Bibles to teach in our schools and universities.
  • Enforce homosexuality, transgenderism, and every kind of perversion, but outlaw counseling that would reverse this curse and minister deliverance, sanity, and freedom to many.
  • Watch Hollywood defame all that is godly and decent while labeling all who oppose as racist, hateful, and bigoted.
  • Bully those who wear MAGA hats to honor our president’s vision for America while screaming like a psycho lunatic—while the law does nothing about it.
  • Praise the Muslims and their Islamic Baal god; praise Buddha and Eastern religions; fill our air waves with New Age gobbledygook; praise witches, warlocks, and satanists; but mock God and His beloved Son and all that is godly, righteous, clean and decent.
  • Keep making attempts to remove every vestige of Christianity, the only hope of all mankind, from our public institutions of learning, commerce, and government.

And this is just scratching the surface.

But when murder of our most innocent is made law, you have a nation on the verge of a death from which it may never recover. Our children and grandchildren will suffer the most.

By all means keep praying. Call or write your representatives. Fill your churches with vision for a godly America. Educate every believer in what is happening to our nation. Call a spade a spade and be plain in your manner of speech. Stop the political correctness. Pastors, stop caring about the lukewarm, tepid, and out-of-touch-with-reality professing Christian and your tax-exempt status.

It is time to judge ourselves concerning these matters and be found on the side of righteousness. We are on the verge of bringing judgment down on America if the righteous and every decent American do not act.
