THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s: THREE MODERN DAY FALLACIES DEFILING THE CHURCH

I heard a popular television preacher recently say this: “If God judges America He’s going to have to apologize to Jesus.”

But the Word says: “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayers; but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil” (1 Pet. 3:12).

And this:

“The Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trial, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the Day of Judgment” (2 Pet. 2:9).

The first fallacy in today’s visible mainstream church world is ignorance concerning God’s judgments and even wrath.

FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND GOD’S JUDGMENTS

The aforementioned preacher’s understanding lacks balance and the whole counsel of God. He says that Jesus bore our judgment and therefore God will not judge America or anyone for that matter. Honestly, this belief system is the edge of universalism.

It says Jesus bore everyone’s judgment on the cross, so no one will be judged. Everyone is okay. Everyone will be saved in the end. Actually, it is this popular view that has opened a large door to so much deception in the church. It breeds a lackadaisical spirit and an absence of holy fear in most Christians. It emphasizes a positional truth at the expense of an experiential truth.

In fact, Romans 1 offers specific proof that America is already under the judgment of God.

“The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth through unrighteousness” (Rom. 1:18).

God’s wrath is already being revealed. Present tense. In other words, we don’t need to wait until the Day of Judgment to see God’s wrath. It is being demonstrated now. You need to read the rest of the verses that follow this verse to see this.

“Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness” (Rom. 1:24a).

“For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions” (Rom. 1:26a).

God gave them over to a debased mind” (Rom. 1:28b).

These verses are talking about sexual immorality, specifically the sin of homosexuality and lesbianism. The entire so-called sexual revolution is a product of God’s wrath. America has been under the judgment of God for decades! We’ve praised AIDS victims as if they are heroes, but in actuality, it is the penalty of their sin that they have received (Rom. 1:27).

In fact, when those who practice such things that are deserving of death, also approve of others who practice them (v. 32) it is one of God’s final signs of His wrath on a society.

HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF THE PRESENT JUDGMENT OF GOD UNDER THE NEW COVENANT

This list does not include the promised future judgments of God that are also found throughout the New Testament.

1.  The wrath of God is currently and continually abiding upon all those who reject Jesus Christ as the Son of God (John 3:36).

2.  Ananias and Sapphira (believers) are struck down dead for lying to the Holy Spirit (Acts 5:1-10).

3.  King Herod is struck dead by an angel of the Lord for not giving God glory (Acts 12:20-23).

4.  Elymas the magician is struck blind “by the hand of the Lord” for being a fraud and son of the devil (Acts 13:8-12).

5.  The immoral brother is judged and handed over to Satan for the destruction of his flesh (1 Cor 5).

6.  Believers are judged and become sick, some even die, for not judging themselves before partaking of the Lord’s supper (1 Cor 11:27-32). 

When you take away the present wrath and judgment of God from the New Covenant you are changing the word of God and removing your name from the book of life and the holy city (Rev. 22:19). You are guilty of creating a god made in your own image and participating in an antichrist agenda.

Wake up, church! What are some of these preachers saying? God’s judgment and wrath are already here! Can they escape? Yes, if they turn to God in sincere repentance, they can still receive His mercy and be saved and delivered. But many will not do so.

CROOKED VIEW OF HOLINESS

The second fallacy in much of the church world today is a total misunderstanding of true holiness. In fact, the Lord told me that there’s been a diabolical silence on it. I believe that restoring the beauty of biblical holiness in the Church is a critical ingredient to healing the moral confusion in our culture. As the Church goes, so goes the world. Our disproportionate view of holiness is one of the big reasons there is so much of the spirit of the world in the Church.

True holiness has gotten such a bad rap and is looked upon with a sort of disdain, as being primitive, outdated, and just not culturally relevant. We need to realize, however, that negative experiences or unsound teaching does not nullify the real meaning, necessity, and beauty of God’s holiness.

One of my favorite definitions of holiness as it applies to believers is that it is a moral dedication and a life committed to purity of thought, word, motive, and deed. At the center of that definition is the fact of being set apart or consecrated to God’s purposes. in other words, we are not to be conformed to the world’s ideals, patterns, or standards, but to God’s nature and will.

But even more importantly, holiness has more to do with whom we belong to. To whom do we give our loyalty, love, and allegiance to? To be holy means that all we are and all we have belongs to God, not ourselves, and is set apart for His purposes. This is the theme of the apostolic letters to the early churches. How are some believers, even preachers, missing that today?

“Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God (2 Cor. 7:1)

Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord…” (Heb. 12:14).

A distorted view of holiness, or simply the ignorance of it, is clouding our understanding of God’s true love. When God is seen as a loving, non-demanding pushover whose love overrides His holiness, whose grace no longer teaches us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts then people will live in accordance with that belief and come under the judgment of God. Permissiveness and promiscuity will be prevalent.

This brings me to the third big fallacy I see in the church today and that is the false concept of the love of God.

WRONG CONCEPT OF THE TRUE LOVE OF GOD

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

There’s a sentimental mushy kind of love expressed in the church and lives of so-called Christians today that falls so short of the real God-kind of love. It is a love not based on truth and deeds.

For example, one of the hot controversial topics today is that of the aforementioned homosexuality. More and more people in the church world are accepting it and now celebrating it. Entire denominations are now ordaining gay clergy. This is being done all in the name of love. But it is so clear from the Word of God that this is a complete abomination that should have no place whatsoever in the church. There are churches and entire denominations turning into “synagogues of Satan” “where his throne is” (Rev. 2:9,13). Doctrines like this are the “depths of Satan” (Rev. 2:24).

Does this mean we stop loving gay people? Of course not; we should love them all the more because they are in grave danger, but we must do so in all kindness, wisdom, and love, speaking the truth to them. But most people will hate you for it as they did Jesus.

“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.” (R.C. Sproul, The Holiness of God).

You see, love must be mixed with truth and holiness for it to pass the biblical test. As I said, today we are altering the Scriptures because we don’t like certain verses that contradict the lifestyle that we or our friends may be living. Many have removed God’s judgments and wrath, holiness, and hell, right out of the Bible. It’s one of the signs of these evil last days we are living in.

We may criticize what is happening in the world all we want, but judgment must begin in the house of God if we desire to see His glory and the awakening that many of us have been praying for. Let us remove the evil from us. Let not any form of sexual  immorality be even named among us (Eph. 5:3).

“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?” (1 Pet. 4:17).

THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s: A TIME FOR WIMPY CHRISTIANS TO BECOME COURAGEOUS

No Christian in this country is under the threat of death or imprisonment for preaching the gospel. No one’s life is in danger. No one is being beaten, flogged, or hardly even threatened. Yeah I know, a baker and florist among others had their day in court in a battle over first amendment rights concerning serving gay couples, and I’m still not sure how that was all settled. But no one is suffering for the sake of the name of Jesus in the same way the early disciples did. Why then is there such a passive posture and a cowardice in the church when it comes to standing for truth, righteousness, and morality in our culture? Why are there so few who are rocking the boat of our sinful, wicked, immoral culture?

Jeremiah said it this way:

“If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace in which you trusted, they wearied you, then how will you do in the thicket of the Jordan?” (Jer. 12:5).

America is still virtually a land of peace, but Christians are slumbering and weary with the weights and cares of the world and such indifference. What would happen if overnight we were raided by radical terrorists who demanded we deny Jesus and join their religion and cause or be executed? What if there was a foreign invasion or military coup from insiders, and our government was suddenly taken over, and a new antichrist government was established—and all our freedoms were taken away? It’s unlikely at this point, but what if?

C’mon folks, let’s be real. Our brand of Christianity here in the West is soft, weak, anemic and nearly good for nothing.

We resemble the church of Laodicea who boasted in its supposed blessedness and wealth when Jesus called it wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked.

“For you say, ‘I am rich, and have stored up goods, and have need of nothing,’ yet do not realize that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked” (Rev. 3:17).

Many Christians are terrified to stand against the sins of our culture and just tell others it is wrong. In fact, some professing Christians will actually celebrate those sins with the world. They will march in gay pride parades because they say God is love. They will rally for women’s rights to abortion because after all, their bodies are their own. They will say that fornication, adultery, and every form of sexual immorality are none of our business, and that we shouldn’t judge and yada, yada, yada … .

Adding to their moral cowardice and complete ignorance of biblical standards, these passive “Christians” will defend their “personal” Jesus and tell others He loves them and understands them. How despicably immoral that is in itself. How grossly deceived they are! How spineless and yellow-bellied these professing Christians have become! They’ve been conformed to the culture and a Jesus they’ve created in their own image (The Real Jesus) instead of being conformed to the biblical Christ. This makes them twice as much a child of hell as the sinners who commit such sins. Oh, I know that’s hard to hear, but it’s the truth. Jesus was most angry and displeased with the religionists of His day who professed religion but denied Him and His works.

I am not saying our primary responsibility as Christians is to attack the sins of our culture, but where in our society are Christians standing against sin and immorality? The world holds up its poster child of sin, and we applaud or remain silent. Antichrist laws are legislated, but where is the outrage and the opposition? Where is the strong resistance and defense of the truth? Where is the resolute stand for righteousness and morality? Where is the voice of the shepherds and the Church across this land?

I am also not saying that our refusal to denounce sin is our greatest problem, but how long will morality and truth continue to give way to an ungodly and evil agenda in our nation? Our faith is either being kicked to the curb, placed in the corners and fringes of society, or just being denied by so many who remain passive and neutral. We’ve allowed our faith to be cut off from normal life and relegated to our church sanctuaries. In a word, we’ve been silenced in the public arena. There are a large consensus of Christians who are actually helping our culture build an atheistic society. And we use the secularism in our culture to be secular ourselves. In many ways they have influenced us far more than we have influenced them.

There is very little evidence of true Christianity in our American culture, and it’s our fault. It is time to heed the Lord’s admonition to Joshua.

“Be strong and courageous” (Josh. 1:6a) …

“Be strong and very courageous” (v. 7a).

“This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go (v. 9)”

Because of our lack of backbone and courage American Christianity is falling off the cliff. We are going the way of the dinosaur if Christians do not become stronger and more courageous in their faith and convictions. We are living in a very pagan culture right now in our nation. Things are so much worse than they seem. The vices, the bondages, and vile filth are expanding at an overwhelming pace. The church is to be the conscience of the nation, but the conscience of so many professing Christians is seared right now.

Our brand of Christianity is lame. It is seen as a nice religion of nice people. A wholesome fanaticism is missing. A life and a vibrancy is lacking. We are too passive and too wimpy. If we want to change our culture, we must come out of our closet of fear and intimidation. Many need to understand that we can be loving and yet fearless and courageous at the same time.

Honestly, we have no need to be fearful and intimidated. As I said, no one is being threatened with their life. No one is being killed for their faith. So what are we afraid of? The rejection of men? Who cares? Is that really going to matter in the end? There are plenty of others who will applaud you and wax courageous because of your example to stand for truth, righteousness and morality, and share the gospel of Jesus Christ. And God will give you wisdom and grace to love even your enemies.

Let the change begin with you. A little courage will go a long way. And if enough of us wax strong in the Lord and stand tall and courageous, we will, in time, see the change our hearts are longing for.

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: 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.

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?

AMERICA IS NOW A HOMOSEXUAL NATION

Don’t let this statement throw you but hear me out. America is now known as a homosexual nation. It is run and dominated by a homosexual agenda and now even a transgender agenda. And yet homosexuals are only 2% of our population. They control the cultural conversation, our media, our education system, and the language. You can no longer counsel gays or transgenders without backlash and persecution. You can no longer talk about family values because it offends them.

The homosexual agenda controls our movies and television. They control aspects of our government and our laws. Never did I think this could ever be in America. Our forefathers are rolling over in their graves. But guess what? This is not who the majority are in our nation. It’s just that the 2% have been resolute and demonstrated resolve and dominated the majority who are indifferent. They lie better than the Church tells the truth. The radicality that the Church should’ve been demonstrating for righteousness the homosexuals have demonstrated for evil. Shame on us.

In the American revolution history teaches us that only one-third of the people in the young colonies were truly patriots seeking independence from Britain’s tyrannical government. Another one third were loyalists to the king while the remaining 33-40% were indifferent and didn’t care one way or the other. That is how it is today.

Those old patriots had a depth of conviction and were unflinching in their resolve. They were committed to their freedom and liberty. They had great courage for a cause that would extend to their children and grandchildren and future generations. Sacrifice and suffering were embraced as a virtue. They defined their moment. It’s time for some real spiritual patriots to arise who won’t give up until there’s reformation and revival everywhere.

God only needs a consecrated minority. It’s actually a consistent theme in the Scriptures that a minority is what He prefers. Gideon’s 300 were enough and they recaptured 7 years of a lost harvest from thousands of the enemies of God. The 120 in the upper room were enough. They were a threat to the Roman empire and shook their world and turned it upside down for Christ. God has a mighty remnant that have not bowed their knees unto Baal and they can change this nation and the world.

As I heard someone say recently, we are in a defining moment in history. A defining moment is a moment that what is done in that moment will affect the future. A defining moment is a moment that puts a nation, a culture, and a church on a different path. A defining moment is a moment when conformity to society and the status quo is challenged. It’s a pushback moment when the Church rises up in defiance against the rule and political correctness of the culture.

Someone once said: Fear and anxiety typically coral us into formatted behavior rather than insight and revelation that offers a better way. God’s way is a better way.

Defining moments are moments when someone takes the pen and with decisive authorship writes the script for a new play. It’s time to write a different ending to the play the world has written, and it’s time to write it in accordance to God’s word.

We are moving into a defining and tipping point moment. Defining moments are not defined by governments or politicians. They are defined by a righteous radical remnant who refuse to let antichrist people with corrupt agendas define the moment. God gives us courage and authority to define moments. He expects us to be good soldiers. Throughout history it’s been the radicals in the Church that define pivotal times and crisis in culture.

Karl Marx was wrong about many things but he was right about this: Two percent who are passionate dominate the 98% who are indifferent. Indifference and passivity always loses. We need to end the delusional thinking that it takes the majority to bring forth radical change. If God be for us the odds will always be in our favor.

In the kingdom of God numbers never determine victories. God and His angels are for radical righteousness. All we need is a resolute minority anointed by the Spirit with some iron resolve to accomplish God’s purposes and make history.

May You, oh Lord, infuse iron resolve into our souls for Your great glory. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Our books are forerunners to personal holiness, the move of God, and the return of the Lord. They also combat the departure from the faith and the turning away from the truth we are seeing in our day. The Real Gospel, The Real Jesus, The Real Salvation, and  The Real Spirit Of Revivalare especially strategic in trumping the many falsehoods spreading in the modern day Church. Cleansing The Temple is flying off the shelves right now as the message is resonating with many in this hour.

THE END OF ALL THINGS IS AT HAND

This is a compilation of several major visions and prophecies of last days events leading up to the coming of the Lord. I’ve shared them individually this week in their entirety, but now here I highlight excerpts from each one. 

WIGGLESWORTH – 1927

There must be special preparation for the return of Christ and at least half of all believers will be totally unprepared. We have to see that these days have to come before the Lord can come. There has to be a falling away. I want to speak to you very exactly. All the people which are pressing into and getting ready for this glorious attained place where they shall not be found naked, where they shall be blameless, where they shall be immovable, where they shall be purified by the power of the Word of God, have within them a consciousness of the very presence of God within, changing their very nature and preparing them for a greater thing, and causing them to be ready for translation.

This is the day of purifying. This is the day of holiness. This is the day of separation. This is the day of waking. O God, let us wake today! Let the inner spirit wake into consciousness that God is calling us.

HAGIN – 1950

I was struck dumb. He laid his right hand on my head and said, “Read, in the Name of Jesus Christ!”

I began to read what was written on the paper, and as the words instructed me, I looked and saw what I had just read about. First I read about thousands upon thousands of men in uniform. Then I looked and saw these men marching, wave after wave of soldiers marching as to war. I looked in the direction they were going, and as far as I could see there were thousands of men marching.

I turned to read the scroll again, and then looked and saw what I had just read about. I saw many women—old women with snowy white hair, middle-aged women, young women and teenagers. Some of the younger ones held babies in their arms. All of the women were bowed together in sorrow and were weeping profusely. Those who did not carry babies held their hands on their stomachs as they bowed over and wept. Tears flowed from their eyes like water.

I looked at the scroll again, and again I looked to see what I had read about. I saw the skyline of a large city. Looking closer, I saw the skyscrapers were burned-out hulls. Portions of the city lay in ruins. It was not written that just one city would be destroyed, burned and in ruins, but that there would be many such cities.

The scroll was written in the first person, and seemed as if Jesus Himself were speaking. I read: “America is receiving her last call. Some nations already have received their last call and never will receive another.”

…”More and more miracles will be performed in the last days which are just ahead, for it is time for the gift of the working of miracles to be more in prominence. We now have entered into the era of the miraculous.

Many of my own people will not accept the moving of my Spirit, and will turn back and will not be ready to meet Me at my coming. Many will be deceived by false prophets and miracles of satanic origin. But follow the Word of God, the Spirit of God and Me, and you will not be deceived. I am gathering my own together and am preparing them, for the time is short.”

…”So today I am speaking and giving America her last warning and call to repentance, and the time that is left is comparable to the last seven days of Noah’s time” (Gen. 7:4).

“Judgment is coming. Warn this generation, as did Noah his generation, for judgment is about to fall. And these sayings shall be fulfilled shortly, for I am coming soon.”

Jesus repeated, “This is the last revival. I am preparing my people for my coming. Judgment is coming, but I will call my people away, even unto Myself, before the worst shall come. But be thou faithful; watch and pray, for the time of the end of all things is at hand.”

HAGIN – 1963

For there came a dark hand up out of the ocean from the east, even from the Atlantic Ocean. It came up out of the sea as a hand and as it rose up into the air it became a dark cloud and it filled the whole atmosphere. Yea, and it swept in like a storm at sea. And I said, “Oh Lord! Oh Lord! Oh Lord! What’s the meaning of this?” And He spake unto me and said,

“Son, that is the darkness of atheistic communism that is sweeping across the nation—even in the minds of men in high places and politicians with great power. And this nation shall not grow more strong and you shall not have more liberty than you have now, but liberties that you’ve known and you’ve seen shall be seized and taken from you.”

And I looked again, and I could see upon the mountain a blotch, as though a bottle of ink had been spilled and spread out over several states in the south and east. And then I looked and I could see spots splotched all over the map and I said, “Lord, what meaneth this?”

And He said,

“Communistic inspired hatred among races shall cause greater turmoil than your nation has seen heretofore. Yea, it is not the will of God but men’s hearts are perverse and they walk without the love of God and seek to have their own way. And so it shall be worse than you have seen.”

And I said, “Oh Lord! Oh Lord! Is there a remedy? Is there a remedy? What shall the answer be?”

And He said,

“Evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceived and being deceived.”

And then I said, “Oh, Lord! Do we have nothing to look forward to in the future except the darkness, the blackness, war, destruction and evil?”

And so then I looked into the spirit realm and I saw falling upon that mountain a ball of fire from heaven. The closer to the Earth, the bigger it got, and then when it came to the Earth it divided into small balls or sparks of fire, and it fell upon men. And I saw an army of men rise up, and it seemed as though their hands were fire. And there sat upon their heads a tongue of fire. (When I first saw it, it seemed like their whole heads were on fire but it was tongues of fire leaping.) And I said, “What meaneth this?”

And He said,

“Before the worst shall come and the day of darkness encompasses there will be those who shall go and who shall carry the fullness of My truth and the fire, not only to the states of this nation but to many other places. For there is a work that must be done, first spiritually, before the Lord shall come.

“Now prepare ye your hearts, for the time is at hand and the beginning is now; and ye shall see and ye shall know for the hand of the Lord is upon you and many of you shall be used in these last days and the work shall progress.”

FRODSHAM – 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. The darkness shall be so great and the anguish so sore that men shall cry out for death and shall not find it. There shall be a lingering death, famine and great catastrophes.

My wrath shall be manifested against all ungodliness. It shall come with great intensity. You have known my love but have not experienced My wrath or My severity. My judgments are literal and not a thing to be passed over lightly.

Realize the severity of My judgments and My intense anger against the sin in My household. My judgments shall begin in My house, for I will cleanse My house that it be not a partaker of My wrath against the iniquities of the cities. 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.

I am going to prepare you for the coming days by a hard path that will cause many to cry out continually unto Me. For when the going is easy, men do not seek Me but rejoice in a temporary blessing. And when that blessing is removed, they so often turn this way and that way but do not come to Me. I am showing you these things in order that you may seek Me continually and with great diligence. As you seek Me, I will open up truths to you that you have not seen before, and these very truths will be such that will enable you to stand in these last days. As you are persecuted, reviled and rejected by your brethren, then you will turn unto Me with all your heart and seek Me for that spiritual life that you need so that when the tribulation comes, you will have that which will enable you to stand for many will be tossed to and fro. Men’s hearts shall fail them because of trouble on every hand. These days shall be very terrible, the likes of which have never been seen before.

NAMELESS OLD 90 YEAR OLD NORWEGIAN WOMAN – 1968

“A lukewarmness without parallel will take hold of the Christians, a falling away from true, living Christianity. Christians will not be open for penetrating preaching. They will not, like in earlier times, want to hear of sin and grace, law and gospel, repentance and restoration. There will come a substitute instead: prosperity (happiness) Christianity.

“The important thing will be to have success, to be something; to have material things, things that God never promised us in this way. Churches and prayer houses will be emptier and emptier. Instead of the preaching we have been used to for generations -like, to take your cross up and follow Jesus, – entertainment, art and culture will invade the churches where there should have been gatherings for repentance and revival. This will increase markedly just before the return of Jesus.

ORAL ROBERTS – 2004

Suddenly, in the clouds in the skies above New York City and the east part of the United States, and which hung there for quite sometime and then spread out across America, without touching the ground, and then God diffused it away from America and sent it out to the nations of the earth. And I saw and I heard. What did I see? I saw something coming down from above: Smoke and vapor and blood, or it looked like that to my eyes, to my spiritual eyes.

There it was hanging so huge until it almost blotted out the sky.

…And then I heard God’s voice. He said: “I’m making a sign.”

This is a sign according to the second chapter of Acts, where the apostle Peter, upon the giving of the Holy Spirit, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, said there’ll be signs in the skies.”

He said, “This is one of the signs of the end time because the world is not ready for the second coming of my Son.” He said, “My church is not ready for the second coming of my Son.”

He said, “The Jews, with whom I’ve had the covenant for thousands of years, they’re not ready for the second coming of my Son.” He said, “The nations of the earth are not ready for the second coming of my Son.”

…And He said to me, “You remember that I said in My Bible to my disciples 2,000 years ago, ‘Go into all the world and teach all nations, and when that teaching has reached the nations then shall the end come.'” And then he startled me. He said, “With all of the widespread force of my church in the world, but particularly in the United States, which is the source of most of the gospel that’s being preached in all the world,”

He said, “There is a wasting of My power, there is a failure to grasp the end time. And the church, they are coming to church on Sunday morning mostly for themselves. And the preachers, for the most part, are not really concerned about the nations of the earth.”

“They’re concerned about the little group that is there, and they sing their songs and they get up and preach.” And He said, “When 9/11 struck, there was a fear that came into the hearts, even of My people of the church and of the people outside the church. And millions the following Sunday or two rushed to go to church.”

“But the preachers were not prepared, and most of them didn’t even preach on it and didn’t even talk about it being the sign of something that’s coming hundreds of thousands of times bigger.”

…Now, there’s got to be preaching with fire in the belly!

There’s got to be an anointing of the Holy Ghost. My church has to wake up because what I’m revealing in this sign that “every” eye is going to see, “every” ear is going to hear. They’ll see this thing. They will not necessarily know what it is, but it’s a wake-up call about the Second Coming of my son!

It’s not going to come and touch the earth. It’s going to be seen, it’s going to be heard, and people are going to become aware of the drama of the end time, of the Second Coming of Christ. When He splits the skies and comes back with His bride and takes over the reign of the earth and He destroys the Antichrist, who will arise at that time. He will destroy the followers of Antichrist and He’ll establish His kingdom upon the earth. And He said, “I cannot let anybody live and die without knowledge that my Son is coming back the second time.”

Before Jesus comes there must be a final Cleansing Of The Temple to prepare His Church for the greater glory and the  terrible judgment yet to come.  

HAGIN 1963 VISION OF COMMUNISTIC INSPIRED HATRED IN AMERICA

Yea, the hand of the Lord was upon me … the Spirit of God moved upon me … the voice of God spoke unto me and said, “Come up, come up hither son of man.”

I went, as it were, up into the air and stood with Him, the Head of the church, even the Lord Jesus Christ…in the air. And as I looked down upon the ground I could see as a map laid out before me the entire nation—all the states of the continental United States. And as I looked He said,

“Behold son, and I shall show you that which shall come to pass, and that which the eyes of many shall see. And they shall remember that their ears heard that it shall come to pass.”

For there came a dark hand up out of the ocean from the east, even from the Atlantic Ocean. It came up out of the sea as a hand and as it rose up into the air it became a dark cloud and it filled the whole atmosphere. Yea, and it swept in like a storm at sea. And I said, “Oh Lord! Oh Lord! Oh Lord! What’s the meaning of this?” And He spake unto me and said,

“Son, that is the darkness of atheistic communism that is sweeping across the nation—even in the minds of men in high places and politicians with great power. And this nation shall not grow more strong and you shall not have more liberty than you have now, but liberties that you’ve known and you’ve seen shall be seized and taken from you.”

And I looked again, and I could see upon the mountain a blotch, as though a bottle of ink had been spilled and spread out over several states in the south and east. And then I looked and I could see spots splotched all over the map and I said, “Lord, what meaneth this?”

And He said,

“Communistic inspired hatred among races shall cause greater turmoil than your nation has seen heretofore. Yea, it is not the will of God but men’s hearts are perverse and they walk without the love of God and seek to have their own way. And so it shall be worse than you have seen.”

And I said, “Oh Lord! Oh Lord! Is there a remedy? Is there a remedy? What shall the answer be?”

And He said,

“Evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceived and being deceived.”

And then I said, “Oh, Lord! Do we have nothing to look forward to in the future except the darkness, the blackness, war, destruction and evil?”

And He said,

“Son of man, forget not your text for you look at the things not seen (the title of his message was, Looking At Things Unseen).”

And so then I looked into the spirit realm and I saw falling upon that mountain a ball of fire from heaven. The closer to the Earth, the bigger it got, and then when it came to the Earth it divided into small balls or sparks of fire, and it fell upon men. And I saw an army of men rise up, and it seemed as though their hands were fire. And there sat upon their heads a tongue of fire. (When I first saw it, it seemed like their whole heads were on fire but it was tongues of fire leaping.) And I said, “What meaneth this?”

And He said,

“Before the worst shall come and the day of darkness encompasses there will be those who shall go and who shall carry the fullness of My truth and the fire, not only to the states of this nation but to many other places. For there is a work that must be done, first spiritually, before the Lord shall come.

“Now prepare ye your hearts, for the time is at hand and the beginning is now; and ye shall see and ye shall know for the hand of the Lord is upon you and many of you shall be used in these last days and the work shall progress.”

Hallelujah to Jesus! Hallelujah to Jesus!

And I said to Him, “Oh Lord! May I have a small place to work?” And He said, “I shall cause thy tent to be enlarged. Yea, thou shalt have an enlarged ministry and thou shalt minister to many where you ministered to a few. Therefore, go ye back to the Earth and be thou faithful and give forth that which I tell you to give for you have been reluctant in days gone by to tell it. Now tell it boldly and speak it true for now is the day that it shall be so.”

Oh hallelujah! Oh hallelujah! Praise God! Praise God! Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!

For the word of the Lord came unto me saying,

“The prophetic vision shall be restored unto the church, for even in the days of old under the old covenant the prophet would see by vision and prophesy, and so the prophetic vision shall be restored unto the church. And this is the time, and this is the hour, and this is the place.”

Praise God! Hallelujah! Thank you Jesus! Praise God, praise God!

When I spoke up I saw this very night. I saw the vision. I was lifted up to that place. Oh men and women, thank God for His goodness to man.

We are now in a very serious time of judgment and cleansing. 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. Cleansing The Temple is the time we are now in, 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 when judgment falls, the Church will be separate, and her impact will be greater.

Also, this ministry is sustained by the freewill offerings of those who believe in the mandate and message of revival that this ministry carries.
