WE NEED A COURSE CORRECTION

I wrote much of the following article 20 years ago. How much more true is this today?

I just now understand some things that I couldn’t years ago. Then I remember trying to share my heart for holiness with some Christian friends. I’d preach strong raw messages in churches without ever smiling. It was like trying to drive an armored truck over a stick bridge. People accused me of being too hard and too heavy. Their bewildered look would be best described by the robot that appeared years ago on the show “Lost in Space” who would often say, “This does not compute!” But I voiced the robot’s other notorious cry, “Danger, danger!”

They didn’t really believe the state of affairs in the Church was that bad, or at least not as bad as I was saying. Of course, in my immaturity my approach was not the best. But what I didn’t understand back then was that it was really much worse. With hindsight it is obvious to see now how a careless and casual sowing in years gone by, has in many places, resulted in the reaping of some pretty rotten fruit. I think time and history have borne witness to this fact: In times of prosperity and well being, the general populace including the complacent Christian, will hardly believe warnings of impending danger. Similarly, trouble across the ocean seems so far away. We muse and rationalize saying, “It could never happen here.”

Take the example of the Titanic. Who would’ve believed the unsinkable to sink? The impending danger was infinitely greater than any of the passengers could’ve ever imagined. Even after it smashed into the infamous iceberg, some still disbelieved the mighty Titanic was really sinking. The unwise captain failed to heed sound judgment. Other captains from other passing ships also failed to respond to signal calls for help. The entire tragedy could’ve been avoided. All that was needed was a simple course correction.

In many ways, America, among the nations, has been like the mighty Titanic. For a long time now we’ve needed a serious course correction. Does God hold the Church accountable? When a nation sinks into the deep icy waters of decadent sin and immorality? When its own president and many leaders symbolize such? Are we accurate in our reasoning to say that an earlier course correction in the Church would’ve perhaps and maybe undoubtedly avoided the imminent danger our nation now faces? If captains of gospel ships we call churches and ministries would’ve heeded the warnings of scripture and lessons of history, course corrections could’ve been made.

Ah! But where were the trumpet voices of the prophets? Where were the sounds of alarm and war? Who was calling the Church to arms? Ah! But we were on the mighty Titanic and the Christian life for many was one big happy party! And what of our mighty trusted captains? Many were just happy to have us on board. Perhaps only a small remnant that were at the helm even detected that a real course correction was necessary.

In good times, fat hearts (the conscience) tend to become hardened and develop a false sense of immunity to anything that upsets their earthly security and cozy existence.

This hardness and insensitivity is usually sure proof of their idolatry. Israel was notorious for disbelieving and persecuting the prophets.

“But the Church is in revival now,” some would say. A few may be in revival, but can you count the ones that aren’t? A few are holy and passionately in love with Jesus, but can you count the ones that aren’t? A few are ready for hard times and the judgments of God upon the Church and the nation, but can you count the ones that aren’t?

SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE

At critical points in history great course corrections have been called for. We call them revivals which God has ordained to reverse the process of moral decline and degradation. With great momentum, revivals can turn into mighty awakenings which change the course of history by altering the course of nations. The Church has always been one generation away from extinction. If not for these merciful and mighty moral course corrections, the Church would undoubtedly fade into oblivion. The next few years in America may determine her ultimate destiny. An awakening or anarchy (or both) will be her fate. One thing is for sure; something has to change.

I know that there are some who will staunchly come to America’s defense and question God’s displeasure with her. “After all,” they will say, “there are millions of Christians in this nation.” That is exactly my point. With these supposed millions of Christians, why I ask you have we not made a definite, resounding impact in turning our nation around. A strong Church will have a phenomenal affect on any nation. There are even some among us who still insist on calling America a “Christian nation. They are greatly deceived.

When Howard Stern and Jerry Springer share the most popular radio and TV talk show ratings in this country, no one can claim she is Christian (remember this is 1998). When in the midst of a sex scandal and lies, our President’s approval ratings go up (Bill Clinton at this writing) or stay up, no one can call her (America) Christian. When a righteous prosecutor is despised by his own nation’s people for upholding justice and enforcing the law, she is far from being a Christian nation. The line is blurred; justice is turned back, truth is fallen in the streets (Isa 59: 4, 14-15,) because the Church has not lifted up the standard. And when she has tried to she has failed, because the world does not respect her. A lack of character, wisdom, fire, and power has made us blend and bland. All we do different than the world is talk.

By now you ought to be able to tell that God has inflicted me with a disease. No, it’s not pessimism and skepticism. It’s divine dissatisfaction. In order for the Church to really arise I believe she needs to first be aroused. Before a war becomes physical it is always spiritual. Those who are casual in war time irk and disturb those who are vigilant. Indifference in life and death situations is all the enemy needs to advance. We need to regain the battle mentality and fighting spirit that is so depictive of the Christian life.

But how can we fight if we don’t believe enough in the cause for which we are fighting. Fun, food, and fellowship is the only brand of Christianity some believers have ever known. There is even a subtle cloud of self deception floating around out there that says; “I really want to do something for God, but I don’t know how.” Or how about this one: “You know my family and my work come first. And my children are in football league now.” Or, “There‘s just no time in my schedule.” On and on we make our excuses. But the real problem is our love is not strong enough. A drug addict will find a way to get his drug. Strong love will find a way to reach its needy subjects. Jesus was moved with compassion (Mat 9:36).

SOME CHURCHES NEED TO REINVENT THEMSELVES

Some churches need to reinvent themselves. Never have I seen less evangelism and less effective discipleship than in the churches who pride themselves in being a New Testament church. We have among us many doctors of doctrine but few preachers of power. We have much monotone but little fire. We have many equippers but so few evangelists. We many teachers but few true fathers. We have many meetings where we laugh, but so few where we cry. Whatever happened to having faith for lost souls which works by love? Real faith has humans as the object of its love.

More fun, more food, and more fellowship is not what many of us need right now, unless of course, it is somehow linked to winning the lost. We don’t need fads that come and go. We need fruit that remains. More teaching will only help the doer and not the hearer. More fire, more focus, and more fruit are what we need.

Many churches need a course correction. Please allow the grace of God in me to speak to you right now. Here are a few proposals I would like to make to leaders, ministers, and all saints:

1. Don’t get good at what you’re not supposed to be doing.

Too many of us are a hundred miles wide and one inch deep. We do a lot of things good but not many excellently. It’s time to do some serious evaluation. How many new converts are being added to the kingdom? Who are you currently believing, praying, fasting, travailing for, and lovingly witnessing to? How many people are really being discipled and not just taught? Who are you currently discipling?

Here is the course many must now take if they are to see more fire and more fruit. Convert more church events into opportunities for evangelism. Convert more doctrine into discipleship. Teach them to observe what Jesus taught (Mat 28:19). Go back to the gospels. Constantly evaluate everything you do by the great commission; evangelism and discipleship.

2. Water seeds, not weeds.

Weeds are things that don’t work or don’t matter. We’ve all heard the saying. “Don’t sweat the small stuff.” Don’t let activity and schedule determine your strategy. Don’t immerse yourself into things that rob you of your time with God and with your disciples. Guard your rest, energy, and creativity. Weeds are things God never told you to do which rob you of rest, erase your energy, and kill your creativity. On the other hand, seeds are things which are stamped with eternity. They focus more on people rather than programs. Get rid of everything that hinders true kingdom increase.

3. Develop a passion for prayer and for souls.

This should’ve been listed first. You won’t do much without passion. If you’re not burning up with a vision for souls you will affect very few people dramatically and permanently. This is the real reason why men falter and fail. Instead of burning up, they’re burning out. Instead of getting fired up, they’re getting tired out. Instead of moving on and moving up, they’re moving down and moving out.

Find things which ignite and feed your passion for prayer and lost souls. Read a good biography of a man of God who helped many find Christ. Read good books on holiness, prayer, and revival. Feed constantly on the gospels and the book of Acts. Read the Bible on your knees, and ask God to break your heart with the things that break the heart of Jesus. Go find somebody in pain and bring healing to them. Find the hurting and encourage them. Seek out the last, the least, and the lost and make their day. It’s in the going as in “go ye” that your passion will always be preserved. The way you keep it is by giving it out.

4. Don’t separate but incorporate soul winning into church events.

Pastors, cater some of your services just for the lost. I think it would help many churches to have an extra special salvation Sunday once a month, or at least once a quarter. Teach your people constantly to love the lost and to reach them. Within the confines of their own personality, encourage every believer, young and old, to befriend sinners and win them to Christ. Instead of posting up a barometer to gauge building fund giving, put one up to gauge the number of souls won to Christ. Encourage and disciple believers by precept and example in the art of intercession and travail, and winning the lost. Make the lost your special guests at church functions such as picnics, holiday events like Easter and Christmas, and men’s and women’s night out. This is the real reason why we have fun, food, and fellowship.

5. Lastly, scout out a good evangelist who can help you.

Find one whom you know and can trust that is not just interested in promoting his ministry or getting an offering, but who really has a passion and a faith for seeing lost souls saved. Personally, I can recommend several good ones. Remember also, that winning the lost is not the only function of the evangelist. Contrary to modern church thought, the primary function of every evangelist is to produce other evangelists and a spirit of evangelism in the church.

We are past the half way point of 2019. The mighty Titanic, symbolic of our nation, is sinking quickly. Let us save as many as we can who are drowning in these turbulent icy waters. Soon the devil may make it a crime to do so.

May God bless you with a broken heart for the lost, and may He give you true kingdom increase.

THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s: THE LEFTIST NARRATIVE, DIVORCE CHRISTIANITY FROM THE BIBLE

Secularized America is steeped deeply in gross darkness. Our youth are Satan’s prized trophy. Without effectual fervent intercession and a compassionate convicting message confirmed with miracles, most don’t stand a chance to ever experience true conversion and receive the life of God.

The lies of the fake media are shaping the minds of Americans, especially our youth. They’ve been lied to about their identity and who they are. They’ve been lied to about history, politics, racism and socialism. They’ve been lied to about creation, God and religion—brainwashed into seeing Christianity and Judaism in a bad light while taught Islam and other Eastern religions are good.

I have friends who work in the secular field, and they tell me that more and more young people they work with have completely lost their identity and are yielding to homosexuality, lesbianism, and transgenderism. One man told me that every other student in his drivers education class is a transgender.

AMERICA IS SICKER THAN YOU THINK

This unclean spirit has disconnected many of our youth (although it has affected all ages) to their natural instincts and connected them to confusion as they cling to another of like gender, hoping to fill the gaping hole of emptiness in their hearts. Tampering with your DNA and who your Creator made you is simply spiritual rebellion that stems from entertaining these unclean spirits, which the lies and ideologies in our culture have unleashed.

You can talk about the abuse they’ve experienced or the pain, the neglect and the emptiness they feel, and sincere believers can’t help to be moved with compassion, but we didn’t have this sort of confusion and highly visible perversion a generation ago. In fact, we’d be appalled back then if we could foresee what would be so prevalent in America today. Do we even understand that all these things signify one of the last stages of the death of a culture? Read Romans 1.

People might say that homosexuality has been around for thousands of years, but what about gay marriage and transgenderism?

This is a part of a much larger picture and grand Satanic strategy to continue to infect and further break down the moral base of our society, harass and weaken the church, and separate more of America from the moral absolutes of the Bible and what this nation was founded upon. Our first president, George Washington, said that the issues of virtue and morality are indispensable. Satan is no longer hiding his cards.

In case you haven’t noticed, this is America today: Drag queens in our schools. Pedophiles in our Boys Scouts. Increased and intensified discrimination against true Christianity. Students wear satanic T-shirts to school but cannot pray in the name of Jesus. Teachers won’t read or discuss the Scriptures with students for fear of parental prosecution. Counseling transgenders or gays is forbidden. Teenagers can get abortions on demand without parental permission. In my area, witches are cursing churches and now incanting the queer spirit over our region while many lukewarm Christians sleep and slumber through it all.

Things that were shameful and kept hidden not too long ago are now flaunted and paraded in the open. If not for a holy praying remnant that serve as the final firewall and salt and light in our nation it would be hopeless. Neither Republicans nor Democrats nor Independents nor socialists can deliver the soul of this nation.

Satan is the god of this world (see 2 Cor. 4:4), and the prince of the power of the air.

“Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this world’s darkness, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Eph. 6:12).

Still too many believers have become desensitized and dulled to the madness of this antichrist spirit, and too many pastors and church leaders remain silent or have yielded to gross compromise. The battle for believers is now for a unified kingdom and a church that will stand as one.

TWO SIDES

There are two sides to this matter. One side is exemplified by the recent remarks of the gay mayor from Indiana named Pete Buttigieg who proclaims unashamedly that his Creator made him gay, and if anyone has an issue with that, they should take it up with him. And now he wants to have a national discussion on what is a scriptural Christian. We should take him up on that one, although it might be a trap.

The liberal left is now making this a religious thing. It’s a new attack. Just watch. The plan going forward is to divorce Christianity from the Bible. They won’t tell you that now, but that is their strategy, especially as we get closer to the next election.

The leftists are desperate and in a frenzy because they can’t stand the thought of President Trump being elected for another four years. Look for another false narrative they’ll serve up to the American people about Trump’s connection to Bible-believing Christians. Their true colors are now being seen by many Americans, and their strategy will backfire and fail.

Here’s the other side on this matter: If you stand up to the LGBT agenda, society will ask for your head a la John the Baptist. Most recent case in point is the young Australian rugby player who was fired for essentially quoting Galatians 5:19-21, and saying that sinners, including homosexuals, are headed toward hell if they don’t repent. To add insult to the injury of being fired, instead of defending him, the most visible charismatic leader in Australia published an article condemning the brother for being unloving. This is so typical of our day, and one of the reasons the church has little power and authority. How can the church stand when we are so divided on the most basic scriptural issues of sin and repentance?

TIME FOR HOLY ZEAL

Shouldn’t we all be rallying behind our fearless brother in support of his statements? Shouldn’t we applaud him for boldly voicing his faith? Shouldn’t we proclaim with him the Word of God and tell the world that our God, who made us male and female, is deserving of all our loyalty and worship? Instead, too many professing Christians, even in so called Pentecostal/Charismatic camps, promote a false Christ and persecute those who proclaim the one true God.

This is the antichrist spirit that separates Christianity from the Bible and has opened the door to seducing spirits who are deceiving multitudes.

All professing Christians need to wake up and come out from this Babylonian system, and stand in solidarity when such condemnation is heaped on our brothers and sisters who are standing for truth, morality, and righteousness. The world expresses outrage at our stand for righteousness, and many in the church find fault with the righteous and accuse them of being unloving, condemning, and even homophobic. This should not be.

Where is the honor and the zeal for God’s house and God’s holiness? Where are those who are jealous for God’s name? Where is the spirit of the early apostles who in the midst of intense persecution proclaimed, “It is better to obey God than man?”

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 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 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.

PREPARING FOR THE TUMULTUOUS 20s: SAVE THE CHURCH, SAVE THE NATION (Part 3)

Dutch Sheets said this in a recent article:

“A demonic tide of destruction has been unleashed upon our nation, and is taking ground at an increasingly rapid rate. Politically, economically and humanistically, there is an agenda to make this nation never again look the way it has looked before. Yet, God has not given up on America! He has great a plan and a purpose for this nation and He is calling on us to partner with His heart and His strategy in this critical hour.”

Sheets went on to compare the days we are living in to the days of Ezra, and how in response to people’s hunger and desperation  God raised up a company of leaders, among them, Haggai and Zecharias, two prophets, along with Joshua the high priest (representing God’s government), Zerubbabel the governor (representing civil government), and how they joined together to lead the people into reformation. All of them worked in agreement to move God’s people toward repentance and the restoration of the temple (see my new book, Cleansing The Temple, to discover the depth of purification and consecration that must happen to restore the glory of the Lord in His people). This is exactly where we are as a Church and a nation going into the 2020s.

The most exciting part of this account in Ezra is that in response to their obedience and righteous partnership, the Lord blessed them by decreeing that the glory of the latter house would be greater than the former (Hag. 2:9). This is my hope for the Church and the nation.

Refer to his article and be encouraged. God Is Not Done With America

Notice how the prophets, the high priest, and the governor worked together to lead the people into reformation (Hag. 1:1). This pattern is seen throughout the Old Testament. In God’s kingdom there is no separation of Church and state. We are to take the kingdom into every facet of society. When bad things happen in our country often the Church is to blame. Lack of watchfulness, prayerfulness, and obedience to God creates a vacuum for Satan to fill. When Obama, an enemy of the State in my opinion, was elected president, the Church was to blame. I know that statement will not win me more friends, but I will keep saying it. Millions of “Christians” voted for the most anti-Biblical president in American history.

We are in the mess we’re in now because too many professing Christians voted foolishly or didn’t vote at all. Hilton Sutton, the prophecy teacher, who is now with the Lord, conducted altar calls of repentance for Christians who voted for Obama. Even now, so many “Christians” have sided in with the corrupt ungodly media and have been brainwashed to hate President Trump, who has helped the Church’s cause perhaps more than any president in American history. Either discern and vote for righteousness or quit calling yourself a Christian.

You just watch. All hell will break loose in the next election. Refer to the conspiracy essay against Trump before his presidency that I wrote two blogs ago. Expect much more of that.

VERY SERIOUS TIMES

I must say this again. We are in a very serious time of judgment and cleansing right now. There are two cleansings in the ministry of Jesus. He cleansed the temple at the beginning (Jn. 2) and at the end of His public ministry (Mt. 21, Mk. 11, Lk. 19). In the end, this cleansing prepared the way for a new order that His resurrection and ascension would bring.

The Church is coming into a new order and will look vastly different than it has in recent times. Church leaders and ministers must be open to this change that is coming with both new wine and a new wineskin that will foreseeably evolve in times of persecution. There must be a cleansing so that the Lord’s glory can be restored in His people before the worst shall come. America is on the edge of judgment, and we must judge ourselves so that when judgment falls on the world, the Church will be separate, and her impact will be greater. I don’t know about you, but as a minister, I’m making heart-felt adjustments and changes in my own life.

We need to heed Stanley Frodsham’s prophetic words for we are nearer to their fulfillment than when he spoke them in 1965.

“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.”

THE TIME OF PLAYING CHURCH IS OVER

For the last five years on Charisma magazine and on my personal blog I along with a number of other voices have shared much on the dire state of things in our nation and the Church. Some have heeded these messages, but others continue to mock and scoff and resist truth on fire. Sadly, many of them will not survive the coming storm.

The time of playing church and being as little children and looking under the heavenly Christmas tree for the next gift is over, and we’ve entered into a time where we must put away childish things and become serious followers of our Master and understand that the war we are in is about to intensify.

Bittersweet times are ahead. We will choose our own way. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken as we enter into the times of the fear of the Lord. It is time to awaken from our slumber. You can be awakened with a kiss of kindness or shaken with the Lord’s severity. You must choose whom you will serve, for the Lord will distinguish again the righteous from the unrighteous, the holy from the profane, and the serious follower from the fan of Jesus.

Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore, if anyone CLEANSES HIMSELF from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.” (2 Tim. 2:19-21)

He that has ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit of God is saying to the Church.

PREPARING THE CHURCH FOR THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s (Part 2)

The great American revivalist Charles Finney once said that the character of the age is changing and the Church and its preachers must adapt. Many of our church leaders have recognized this – specifically that 21st century living is complex and more demanding, with most people’s lives being a constant whirlwind of activity, their minds bombarded with technology and information, their spirits numbed by social media and the many distractions. Because many are incapable of properly managing and balancing their lives they grow tired, exhausted, and in many ways feel isolated and craving genuine relationships.

Strong preaching and the demands of the gospel are like fingernails on a chalkboard to some. Has the Church adapted? Yes, but the problem has been that the adaptation that many preachers and churches have made has come with many unhealthy compromises.

So to get converts and church members we’ve toned down on the requirements of discipleship, and sound doctrine, and offered people a greasy grace and sloppy love gospel while almost nullifying the necessity of the demonstration of the Spirit and power of God. Thus, the so called progressive church was birthed. Their hybrid twin, the seeker-friendly church, was also birthed. This church model has done more damage and highjacked more truth in a short amount of time than any other in American history. That’s why I agree with the following quote:

“The American church is guilty of great crimes against the Holy Spirit. We told Him to leave and let us grow Christianity incorporated – the worst thing we could have done. It was a mistake – a terrible, incalculable, ongoing mistake – derailing more truth in less time than any moral plague in history.” – Mario Murillo

Not only have we told the Holy Spirit to leave, but as I said the Word of God has been greatly compromised and even corrupted. It has been my observation in these progressive churches that not only has there been a diminished respect for the Bible, but even foundational Christian doctrine is questioned and challenged. The erosion of the most basic tenets of the faith is appalling in some denominational and mainline churches. For example, some no longer even believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation, but that there are many ways and religions that lead to God. No joke. Some no longer believe that the Bible is the fully inspired word of God, but rather a book written or tampered by men (see my book The Real Salvation)(Barna survey).

I know this sounds extreme and hard to believe for us P/C (Pentecostal/Charismatic) people, but we  must understand that the term “Christian” no longer encompasses what is basic foundational Christian doctrine. To be a “Christian” in America has a much broader scope of meaning among the hundreds of thousands of churches that dot our landscape. Even globally that is so. “Disciple” or serious “follower of Jesus” should be the new word to describe a real 21st century Christian.

THE UNHOLY MIXTURE

This girl followed Paul and us, and cried out, saying, “These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation.” (Acts 16:17)

In the above verse when Satan used a slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination to identify herself and her fortune telling with Paul’s team, it was his master plan to defile the church of God with other mixtures. He has done this successfully throughout the ages. It’s always been his lethal stroke. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em is the devil’s mode of operation. Throughout history and increasingly so today, Christianity is a myriad of traditions, doctrines of demons, witchcraft, and now New Age gobbledygook. Unfortunately, some of this mixture has also infiltrated into the P/C camp.

Listen carefully to some of today’s most popular teachers. They are popular because most of what they teach is pleasant, affirming, and non-confrontive. For the most part, it’s a happiness prosperity gospel. It certainly does not contain any power to get you beaten and thrown in jail. The whole counsel of God is missing from their presentation. In many cases, opinions and feelings are emphasized more than the Scriptures. These teachers and pastors are a part of what I call “progressive” and “seeker-friendly” churches that really are digressive. In many of them sin and redemption have been exchanged for social justice and doing good.

Multitudes of people have hidden themselves behind these fig-leaf churches. They are content in being religious. The fig leafs are their self-righteous works and the natural goodness of a person, but according to Finney, they are useless for revival.

“There is a certain type of Christian that although being constructively involved in the church and pass off as being very good Christians are useless in revival. I do not mean that they are wicked, but they have a form of piety which has no fire and efficiency and actually repels new believers, and wards off the truth.”

WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE

The social and economic pressure in our Western culture is greater than its ever been. The decade of the 2020s will be filled with increasingly stressful situations in our nation, more natural disasters, some that may greatly alter the socio-economic structure of the nation, and the pace of life will not get any slower. The seeds of socialism and atheistic communism have been sown in America and word is still out as to what kind of harvest they will produce. The indoctrination of an antichrist agenda has gained momentum in the last generation. But GOD!

All of these characteristics of a humanistic new age will result in more and more people connecting with the emptiness of their own hearts and they will sense their need for the reality of the living God and the peace and joy that comes from Jesus, even in the midst of chaos, hatred, and unrest. There is a harvest of souls coming and we better be ready. What must we do to be ready?
