THE CONDITIONS ARE RIPE FOR A SPIRITUAL HURRICANE

There were 400 years of near silence from the days of the prophet Malachi until John the Baptist and Jesus came on the scene. No prophet had spoken. We don’t have Biblical record of any prophetic vision or revelation. There was a famine of the true word of the Lord.

The old man Simeon and the old prophetess Anna were two of the faithful remnant who held on to the delayed promise of the coming Messiah and the consolation of Israel (Lk. 2:25-38). The ceremonial priestly sacrifices, the temple offerings, and the Sabbath rituals without the prophets speaking had created a great, lifeless vacuum among the Jewish people.

But in spite of outward circumstances and centuries of a divine pause, God’s plan was still in motion and so much greater than they ever imagined. It not only included redemption for Israel but for the Gentile nations as well. The vacuum of the human heart would be filled to overflowing with new light and new life. The glory of God was on the horizon.

“In Him was life, and the life was the light of men” (John 1:4).

PRINCIPLE OF THE VACUUM

Herein we must understand what I call the principle of the vacuum. When a people are denied and deprived of the life-giving word and power of God for so long, it feeds the desire and hunger for it all the more. When the reality of God is taken from a people, the craving and panting in their hearts increases. When a society infiltrates our educational system from kindergarten to our universities with humanistic ideologies, with marxist socialism, with anti-Christ and anti-Semitic literature, with hatred, violence, and sexual perversion, the human heart begins to long for a purity from a more innocent time. The glory of Christ becomes the end of their search.

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory…” (John 1:14).

Though Christ came 2000 years ago, there are still many nations who’ve been deprived of His gospel and His glory. Anti-Christ governments and religious regimes block the flow of God’s blessings to a nation. They shut off the spigot, so that the water of life cannot get to the people.

But how do you shut off the hunger of a human heart? The potential of life flow into that vacuum is enormous. Here is the principle:

“But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more…” (Rom. 5:20b).

This principle is evidenced when scientists and meteorologists gauge the force of hurricane winds and water surges by the low-pressure systems that form over the ocean of a developing storm. There’s a vacuum effect created that determines the violence of the winds. Such is the mystery of a human heart and a society that has been denied true spiritual light and life for so long.

GREATEST MOVE OF GOD ON THE HORIZON

Take the example of the church in China. In spite of an evil communist regime suppressing the people under an atheistic form of government, the Chinese church is flourishing. I’ll never forget the image I saw not too long ago of a container of Bibles being opened and the Chinese recipients of those Bibles weeping with joy and scrambling to get their copy. The nation’s outlawing of the Bible created a great vacuum in the heart of the people and produced a ravenous hunger for the written Word of God.

Iran, as a nation, is another recent glaring example. The Islamic regime there has starved their people of the gospel and reality of Jesus Christ for a long time. Yet now within that nation is one of the fastest-growing underground churches in the world. What happened? When you saturate a people with enough hate, strife, violence, and a dead, joyless religion devoid of God’s love that produces no true peace, because it contains no assurance of salvation, then you create a great vacuum and a hunger in the human heart to be filled with the reality of the true and living God.

When secularists attempt to create a post-Christian America, they actually create a hunger in people for sacredness. When atheistic university professors seek to erase our Judeo-Christian heritage, they actually create space for a new script of faith in God to be written in the human heart. What they are ignorantly doing is playing right into the devil’s hand.

Satan has been overplaying his hand since Calvary. What he thought was the ultimate defeat turned into the greatest victory in the history of the human race. He is repeating this strategy in his plans to destroy America. All he is doing is adding to the increase of the groaning of creation to be delivered from the bondage of corruption.

The deeper our society sinks into hopelessness and despair, the greater the cry is for a living hope and eternal joy. The deeper the bondage of sin, and addiction to drugs, and sexual perversion, the greater the cry is for deliverance and freedom. This effect is happening in America right now, and globally as well. The earth is groaning for the manifestation of the sons of God (Rom. 8:22).

I propose to you that we are on the precipice of the greatest move of God and awakening that America and the nations have ever seen. I propose to you that, since the time of Christ and the early Church, we’ve not seen a move of God that comes close to the finale of what has been in God’s heart from the beginning.

SAVING AMERICA

This is the rough draft preface to my new book. I never thought I’d be writing a book on this topic so shortly after just releasing a new one, but the burden has intensified. I’ve noticed the passions of other authors are also moving in this direction. They understand that America is on the brink of destruction, but there is still hope if we will pray and act. I’d like to survey our readers. For many Christians a book of this nature is too political for them, but we need to trash that deceptive philosophy. It’s a trick of the devil.  Please let me know from this preface if you’d be interested in reading such a book.

God has ordained the United States Of America to be the most powerful nation in the world. Its military power and its economic superiority actually holds the world together. If the U.S. crumbled or imploded, China would take over the whole of the Far East. Pakistan and India would more than likely break out in war as both possess nuclear weapons. Iran would cause unlimited chaos and madness in the Middle East. Those are just a few examples.

But slowly and gradually in recent years, America’s moral high ground, which caused God to mercifully protect this land, has begun a downward sliding. Then in this last decade, the nation began to spiral into an abyss. Her enemies within sprang up in our marketplaces, court systems, universities, in the high and low places of our government, and of course, in the unprincipled, mad, lying media.

You will be greatly enlightened from my findings in chapter 5 of this book that there are also now many enemies within various branches and large segments of the Church itself. An all-out hellish assault has been doubly unleashed to lull the Church to sleep and to destroy and crush our nation.

Islamists, atheists, LGBT, Planned Parenthood, activist judges and a president who embraced an anti-biblical, one world ideology dominated American culture in the last decade. Hollywood also spearheaded this evil, violence, and corruption throughout the world.

During these turbulent times born again Christians and Messianic Jews began to pray. Thank God that across the nation there were enough saints who saw what was happening and began to cry out to God. Prayer movements for true revival and awakening intensified among the remnant people of God.

God’s response was to miraculously allow an unlikely businessman, Donald J. Trump, to be elected to the presidency of the United States Of America. God foresaw that this hot blooded and temperamental man would have the backbone and character to stand up against the hordes of demonic forces that were intent on destroying our nation. Now these forces working through unregenerate, wicked, and unreasonable men are moving in chaotic desperation as they witness President Donald Trump undoing the work of the last president and gaining momentum for a second term run.

Contrariwise, some of Obama’s last acts as he left the presidency were (1) to free a homosexual spy from prison, (2) to allow his Department of Justice and the FBI to spy on the opposing presidential candidate, and (3) to purposely refuse to use his veto power in the Security Council, leaving Israel with a UN resolution that states that Israeli towns and communities in Judea and Samaria are in “flagrant violation” of international law.

This resolution has given a great boost to the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement with the goal to destroy Israel’s economy. This resolution also means that the Old City of Jerusalem and the Mount of Olives does not belong to Israel, as far as the UN was concerned (see below).

Today President Trump is working to protect Christians whose faith is being attacked by atheistic judges. He is working against a One World open border, which the Democrats dream of allowing literally millions of foreigners into America, and to carry out unlawful deeds such as granting illegal immigrants free medical services, free schooling, and free housing, as well as voter rights to everyone with no citizenship or even identification.

And certainly one of President Trump’s greatest achievements has been to confirm 150 new conservative judges in our nation.

I must honestly say: I cannot imagine how any true Christian or Messianic Jew can be a Democrat today. It is quickly morphing into a Marxist, socialist, violently atheistic party with great greed for power. One cannot read his Bible and be a leftist liberal democrat. You have to go to humanistic schools to be one.

As for Israel, right now God is using President Trump and his close associates as a huge shield to the nation of Israel. He has done more for Israel in such a short time than anyone could have imagined. According to polls, he is more popular in Israel than any other nation in the world. Right now he is also moving quickly to protect the Christians in America and in other nations as well.

The Democrats will do everything in their power to defeat the president and vote in a 2020 president who will free up Planned Parenthood and continue to increase the murder of the unborn, and fully restore the forced brainwashing of nursery and school children to believe and accept the false joys of being a transgender and to get used to seeing men in the girls’ bathroom. These are the facts.

Some of you may not know it, but Israel copies America. Lots of nations follow America. But we also cannot forget for one minute that God has promised that all of Israel shall be saved, and He has promised to pour out His Spirit on all flesh.

Finally, God has allowed a great divide between the right and the left wings of our government. No one who says he serves Jesus Christ and who reads his Bible will have any excuse for not knowing what is good and righteous and what is evil and wicked in this hour. It is becoming increasingly clear in these tumultuous times what is light and what is darkness, and what is Biblical morality and what is violent, intolerant Marxist socialism.

So if we care about this land from sea to shining sea, we will pray and pray that in our lifetime and the lifetimes of our children and grandchildren and future generations, God will keep godly men and women in office, so that America can continue to be a shining light to the world, and that the works of Satan will be defeated in this next election.

“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Tim. 2:1-4).

Notice the connection between praying for governmental leaders and the salvation of men’s souls. When a nation legislates and restricts the propagation of the gospel, it becomes more difficult for the people of that nation to be saved. In America we not only have enjoyed these liberties but the gospel has been carried from this nation to the entire world. This is probably the biggest reason and God’s greatest purpose in keeping America free from its antichrist enemies and saving her “one nation under God” sovereignty.

PRAYER: Lord, we pray continually, that You will hear our prayers, and that You will grant mercy for America. We pray that You will pour out Your Spirit on Your mighty remnant who are advancing Your kingdom and fighting the good fight of faith for the salvation of souls and for the saving and sovereignty of our nation. Amen.

***According to Wikipedia, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (also known as BDS) is a Palestinian-led campaign promoting various forms of boycott against Israel until it meets what the campaign describes as Israel’s obligations under international law defined as withdrawal from the occupied territories, removal of the separation barrier in the West Bank, full equality for Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel, and “respecting, protecting, and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties.” The campaign is organized and coordinated by the Palestinian BDS National Committee.

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.

THE MODIFICATION OF THE GOSPEL HAS GREATLY WEAKENED THE CHURCH

“When backsliders, hypocrites, and the half-hearted seeker among us are made to feel comfortable instead of convicted, soothed instead of smitten, pampered instead of pricked, then something is terribly wrong. The holy fire of God is to burn so brightly in the Church that it allows no room for indifference so that hypocrites will not be able to stay and the true seekers will not remain unchanged.” Bert Farias

“I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed” (Gal 1:6-9).

These are the strongest of words penned by the apostle Paul through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to the Galatian Christians. Twice Paul declares a terrible curse on those who pervert the real gospel of Jesus Christ.

One of the great tragedies of the modern Western gospel has been the accentuation of the blessings and benefits of salvation at the exclusion of other components of the cross. There is a very large movement that is sweeping through many churches today that majors on life-enhancement, self-help, and self-esteem without hardly ever confronting sin and the works of the flesh. Sadly lacking from this sugar-coated gospel are heart-repentance, holiness, and the empowering grace of God to live in obedience to His demands.

Prophet Jeremiah Johnson called this false gospel the gospel of accommodation.

“There is a very real war in the spirit realm over the true gospel, the gospel of self-denial, and this false gospel, the gospel of accommodation that is seeking to overtake the American Church. The gospel of accommodation encourages American Christians to fit Jesus into their life, rather than making Him their life. This false gospel requires no sacrifice, no commitment, and no death to self. It is dangerous, deceptive, and we are going to witness God beginning to highlight preachers and churches who preach this false gospel of accommodation.”

The preachers of this smooth, soft gospel may frequently speak of forgiveness, but rarely do we hear a clear and definitive call for surrender in true repentance. They may even speak of the blood of Christ to cleanse us from our sins, but rarely do we hear of the necessity of that same holy blood to appease the wrath of God against sinners. Frequently we may hear of how Jesus died to make us righteous, but rarely do we use God’s holy Law to strip the sinner of his self-righteousness. We may often hear of the need to gain the glories of heaven, but rarely of the need to shun the horrors of hell. At times we may hear of the resurrection of His power (although in many circles that is rare, too), but rarely do we hear of the fellowship of His sufferings. Frequently we hear of the good life we can have now, but rarely do we hear warnings of the judgment to come. And why don’t we hear more of the latter? Because we don’t want to offend anyone.

The offense of the cross has been virtually removed from our gospel.

What Salvation Army founder William Booth prophesied more than a century ago is increasing at an alarming rate in our day:

“The chief danger of the twentieth century will be,
Religion without the Holy Ghost,
Christianity without Christ,
Forgiveness without repentance,
Salvation without regeneration,
Heaven without hell,
And politics without God.”

The twentieth century has already passed, and things don’t seem to be improving at all in the twenty-first century.

A new gospel has been produced from the ruling philosophy of the day that says, “If it works, it must be better. If our message adds to our number, if it comforts the people instead of offending them, if it makes them happy, if it keeps them coming to our meetings, and keeps them giving to our causes, then it must be good.” The results are what count. This dominating school of thought regards anyone successful as long as they get the job done and accomplish the goals; in this case, growing the church and adding to its membership.

The proponents of this other gospel reason, “More people and more money equal success.” It doesn’t really matter how they accomplish their goals as long as they do. In this philosophy God becomes a means to an end; a useful God to help them attain the desired success. Others, to sound even more persuasive, may say, “More people means more salvations”, but are they really getting saved? Or “More money means a greater propagation of the gospel”, but is it the real gospel?

The rich man that went away sorrowfully after Jesus told him to sell his possessions and give the money to the poor (Mk. 10:17-22) would’ve still been with us today had he heard the modern gospel of goodness, acceptance, and prosperity. Many a popular preacher would’ve gone after him and negotiated a deal. Instead of a clear call to renounce his materialism, perhaps he could’ve been more easily convinced to just believe that Jesus was not merely a good teacher, but actually the Son of God. A simple little prayer would’ve got him in.

Maybe this rich young man could’ve been persuaded to give a tithe of his possessions to the ministry instead of selling it all and giving the proceeds to the poor. That would’ve been much more reasonable and much less offensive to him, and that tithe would really help the church. After all, he had worked hard for his money. Or another popular method employed today would’ve been to make him an elder and offer him a position in the church and then perhaps his sorrow would be eased and his happiness would return.

This is what we’ve done with the glorious gospel of our Lord. We’ve modified it; we’ve added to it and taken away from it; we’ve altered it, diluted it, and adapted it to fit the spirit of the age.

Now we are reaping the rotten seeds of a very faulty sowing of the preaching of this false gospel in days gone by. This is greatly weakening the Church and putting her to sleep while helping to destroy a  nation that is intent in rushing headlong into an antichrist abyss. It’s the perfect storm, one that we could stop if we would just shake ourselves from our lethargy and denial and wake up.

It is time to make these crooked paths straight and prepare the way of the Lord.

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 Revival are especially strategic in trumping the many falsehoods spreading in the modern day Church.
