As America descends into a depraved police state led by those who walk according to the dictates of the prince of the power of the air, fulfilling the unbridled lusts of the flesh and of the mind, serving the spirit that now works in the sons of disobedience, there remains hope.
I admit the flame of hope seems to be flickering at the moment, as perversion is celebrated, its acceptance mandated, and Lady Justice now wears the attire of a harlot, blindfold removed, and freely giving perverse favors to those (knowingly or not) serving the prince of the power of the air.
Many Christians are begging the Lord to return, to get us out of here before all is lost, before the dreaded “antichrist” comes for them. But Jesus didn’t come to Earth and shed His blood, only to have his bride taken out in some humiliating “Afghanistan like” defeat some 2,000 years later.
If you don’t like the condition of the world we’re in, look in the mirror. That’s on us. We are the church of Jesus Christ, seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, with the indwelling presence of God pulsing through our bodies.
Or did we forget?
Instead of praying to the Lord to come back now so you don’t have to deal with the mess we corporately have allowed to happen, try saying, “Send me Lord! Put me in the fight!”
If nothing else, you can fight on your knees. We see Donald J. Trump, a former president of the United States of America, being indicted by political enemies for the purpose of humiliation and with the intention of imprisonment to shut down his voice and keep him away from ever becoming president again. Was that brought up for prayer in your church yesterday?
You can learn a lot about a man you don’t know personally, simply by observing his enemies. Why do you think they are trying so desperately to keep him out of office? Do you really think it has anything to do with questionable payments?
It’s not about Donald Trump. It’s much bigger than that.
There’s an agenda unfolding at record speed. This agenda shut down our own energy supply and made us once again dependent on foreign governments. Who would do such a deliberately crippling thing?
This agenda, fully armed an enemy we were fighting, with the most modern and expensive military equipment in the world, to the tune of some $85 billion. That’s not stupidity. That’s much worse.
This agenda allowed China to fully surveil our country’s most sensitive military bases with a balloon completely unfettered, and then, as usual, lied to us about it. Who would let an enemy do that, except another enemy within our gates?
This agenda then proceeded to further hobble our once great nation by taking the strongest economy in decades and in less than 3 years, tripled the inflation rate, and more than doubled interest rates all while our country experienced the largest rash of mysterious food processing plants being destroyed in our history.
Have you noticed the intermittent food shortages? Sometimes I can’t get eggs. Sometimes, there’s no cream. Other items are in short supply. I see entire shelves completely bare from time to time.
On top of that, we are the world’s reserve currency, but in recent weeks, we’ve seen that erode with the world’s leading emerging market economies (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) taking active measures to replace us with the Chinese Yuan.
If that succeeds, and it’s already underway, you will still owe your mortgage, credit card debt, car loan, etc., but the dollar will only be worth pennies, making it ten times harder to financially survive.
China will be fine though - in case you were worried about them.
Has anyone noticed the rash of train derailments lately? It’s a picture of what’s coming if we don’t stand in the gap, pray, and intercede and then step into the fray, resist the works of the devil forcing him to flee.
Our economy is weakened, our military is depleting, and we’ve sold off almost all our emergency oil reserves. Don’t blame that on stupidity. It’s no accident!
Our people have been suffering both psychological and physical impacts from mandated experimental “health” treatments administered with an injection. According to the government’s own figures, as of today, there have been nearly 200,000 hospitalizations and almost 35,000 deaths attributed to this forced social behavior.
Our society is melting down. Biological men are winning “Woman of the Year” awards, not to mention swimming and other athletic competitions against biological women.
But we can – indeed we must – do something about this. We must stand up and be heard. That might be at the school board level or city hall. There are many other forums where your voice can be heard.
Here’s why that’s important...
The masses (as Emerson said) are silently begging to be led. Will someone stand up and say what the majority of us are thinking? Sometimes it helps to realize we are not alone. We are not crazy. We are in fact, the sane ones! We are also the majority!
I hear people say that “America is not mentioned anywhere in the Bible”, with the clear inference that America will cease to exist. Using that logic, you might as well cross off Paraguay, Thailand, Australia, Zambia and about 150 other nations not mentioned in the Bible. To quote the most cogent statement our current president has ever said,... “C’mon man!”
America is not lost.
Her destiny still lays in front of her. Don’t count her out! I know it looks dark, and it looks like storm clouds are adding to this present darkness, but like all storms, this too shall pass.
I fully expect to see some fireworks before the new dawn arises, but you won’t find me cowering in silence, and I pray it doesn’t find you that way either.
As Christians, we are after all, the light of the world. The day awaits us. The storm will recede when we take hold of courage and resist it for the devil it is. Jesus raised His voice, spoke to the storm and it receded. We must also raise our voices, speak to the storm and those steering it, declaring its end. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. (Heb 10:23)
There’s something powerful about speaking up, about confessing words with your mouth. The devil knows that, which is why evil men have always tried to make their enemies confess their allegiance to them or lose their life. There’s power in the spoken word and the devil knows it.
But do you?
Let us awaken the dawn and spread the glorious light of His truth and love to a nation gone astray. Let’s speak up and show up in the public square. Let it be known that all is not lost, that it may take a few more shocks to get her back on track, but her greatest days are still ahead.
The Great American Comeback is not just a dream. It’s a reality and it will happen! It must happen, but it can’t and won’t happen until and unless America returns to her roots, to her God and to her love of country and fellow man.
Will you be part of this comeback, a third great awakening? You are needed... in the prayer closet raising our petitions to God. You are needed in the marketplace, succeeding, taking territory and being a witness to a fearful and perverse generation.
We truly live in a most exciting time. I was born for this. So were you.
Let’s get to it!
We need God’s help, His wisdom, His Word and His ways, and they are promised to us. You can learn a lot of that right here in what Peter J. Daniels said, “has no equal!”.
Regardless my friend, let’s join together in unity, and advance God’s agenda that has never changed since the beginning. More to share as the week unfolds.
God bless you and God bless America – land that I love!
Absolutely spot on and beautifully written!!
Thank you for commenting and for the positive support Belinda!
Agree 1000% and am praying now!!!Our God is a MIGHTY God!!!!
Thank you Glenn! Appreciate you taking the time to comment!
I like your post. God can heal our land. I believe it all starts with prioritizing prayer;
(1)…“humbling ourselves and (2)-praying. 2 Chron.7:14.
I agree that it should start with prayer, especially with the intent of hearing God and getting His instructions vs telling God what your plan is. Thank you for sharing!
Well said Michael. In agreement with your message. I stand with you and I am doing my part at the marketplace, both, bringing the marketplace to the church and bringing His kingdom to the marketplace.
Thank you Ana Maria. So glad to know so many that are aligned and doing their part in the marketplace! Blessings, Michael
Brilliant analysis of the dangerous times we live in! BUT GOD! America 🇺🇸 will arise from the ashes. She now finds herself with fraudulent jackass at the helm! GOD BLESS AMERICA!
Agreed Lorraine. God will raise us again. Blessings, Michael
It’s a shake up for the church wake up!
Thank you Laurel! Blessings!
Yes! Amen! “A letter to the American church” (book) has this same battle cry! So does Jonathan Cahn and many others! Many of us have been being prepared for this and we agree!!!! Our eyes are being opened! Thank you for speaking this truth! We say “Come Lord Jesus” (not to deliver us from this moment in history) but to lead us in this Victory!!!! “Let this cup pass from us but nevertheless….not as we will, but as you do Father!”
Well said Tammy! Thank you for adding your valuable perspective. Much appreciated!
Yes God is never out done. The bride of Christ is going to the wedding with our Bridegroom without spot or wrinkle. And she will have power and might also!
Spot on Deborah! Well said!
Sounds about right to me
Hi Mark! So good to see your name again. Blessings to and Jenny!
Michael, you are directly on target and on fire. You have once again outdone yourself.
Thank you my brother! So appreciate you!
I agree with you 100 percent. The prophets will be proven right, and God will save
America, and Trump will come back and make America great Again. Amen.
Thank you for commenting and sharing this Elaine! Blessings, Michael
I totally agree with you. I know what God says. He says we need to stand and decree what He is doing which is cleaning the swamp and reinstating Trump. He says He is God Almighty and He doesn’t need an election to put Trump back in charge. He promised that it will grow dark but when He flips the switch it will be swift and sudden. It is coming quickly now. I stand with God and the prophets. I pray thanking Him for what He is doing and I decree and declare what he had said. I stand up for His word every chance I get. We must be bold for we are honored to serve the only Living God.
God bless you for speaking truth
Thank you for commenting Juliet. Like you, I stand up for God’s Word (whose name is Jesus) every chance I get! Blessings, Michael
Hi Susan… Thank you for commenting!
Thank you for the encouraging words and the prompting to DO MORE. We need not have an escape mentality.
Hi Annette… So glad you’re prompted to do more. Thanks for posting a comment! Blessings, Michael
You are so correct. Thank you Michael for your comments. The people of God must come together in unity and get back to living according to our Lord’s Word. John chapter 17.
Well said Gloria! Thank you for commenting!
Amen! I’m working on my book again.
Proud of you Helene! Go for it!
I completely agree Michael. As TD Jakes says “get ready, get ready, get ready, get ready, get ready”! Together we will take our country back from the hoards of hell. I won’t give, give in or give out until it’s done in the mighty name of our King, Jesus the Christ!!
Love your attitude Vince! Thanks for posting!
You’ve said nothing that isn’t true. God’s preparing us for what’s up ahead. He’s wanting us to honor Him and help as many people as possible find Him. We’re on the winning team, so we need to engage the enemy with the Word in our mouths and hearts, knowing His promises are yea and amen in Christ.
Well said James! Thank you for posting!
Agree!!! WE watch and go to the River at Tampa Bay, Pastor Rodney Browne, says it right exactly as you have described! The Glory of God is all over that place, and every week the mighty outreach ministries out of The River, lead on average 500 salvations per week, plus lots of healings and miracles, Remember, he is the one that did not back down and let them shut down the Church, but instead started the Stand now over 1000 straight nights!!! Keep up the great work!
WOW… That’s great that you’re going to the River. We are friends with Eric and Jennifer Gonyon. Thanks so much for posting your comment!
Amen to all you’ve written!!! We WILL be hearing an EMERGENCY BROADCAST SYSTEM VERY SOON- hopefully within the week!! The entire world will be seeing and hearing only one broadcast of nothing but documentaries revealing all the evil that’s been controlling us for years – and showing us – I like to say – God’s Truth- showing all the proof – especially of fraudulent elections and so much more. I’ve loved keeping up with the info on what’s coming at:
This is my way of helping to inform others. I hope it’s ok to post here.
I appreciate you taking the time to post your comment Kathy. Appreciate you sharing your heart and passion!
My God! Thank you for these words of power and authority! I am with you. I take every opportunity to cry aloud and spare not!
Bless you Doanita. Thank you so much for your support!
Totally in agreement! God has blessed America so much throughout history, but as I wrote in a song He gave me years ago, “It’s time for America to turn things around. America! America! Bless God!”
Love that lyric Priscilla! Thank you for sharing!
Amen! Amen! Amen! RIGHT ON! Shout it from the house tops, Michael! Yes! Yes! Yes! On earth as it is in heaven-GIVE US THIS DAY!
Thank you Catrina! We will shout it from the rooftops!
Michael, thank you for all the years you have inspired, led, instructed and provoked us by the Word and His Spirit in and through you. True words from a man who serves the One named Faithful and True. May we see Ps 45, 91, 23, Ps 110 and Ps 2, 37, and Ps 35 prayed, proclaimed and come to pass on Earth as it is in heaven. May we stand tall on our knees and pray liquid prayers of weeping, in repentance for our part in agreement with darkness and our broken agreement with statutes of God that brings light to our souls and revival to our hearts. God bless you and keep you brother. He truly has saved His best wine for last!
Such encouraging words! Thank you Michael. Keep on being that brilliant light in the lives of the executives you coach my friend!
While I agree with your analysis of the American problem and share your frustration and anger at the creeping decadence and lawlessness in American politics, I do not agree with your proposed solution to the problem. I believe that the proper response of the Church to these social challenges should be spiritual and not political. Our calling as Christians is to preach the good news. We are not called to right every wrong in society through polical activism. Rather, we are called to change the world through the power prayer and preaching. The early Church which ministered under very harsh conditions imposed by the brutal oppressive Roman Empire seemed to understand this principle well and deliberately avoided any form resistance or political activism even when subjected to persecution. I suppose we could learn a lesson or two from their example.
Thank you Noel for your perspective. I hope you noticed the emphasis on prayer in my blog post. Beyond that, I am encouraging folks to be salt and light, which means involvement in society and participating in the process, raising up a voice of reason, sanity and righteousness. It means leading in the gates of the city, not being passively silent or only preaching church like sermons for example. It means bringing wisdom to the marketplace, to government and to every sphere of society. When we abdicate being a voice and a witness, even in the political arena, we are leaving it to the darkness to have its way. I am not advocating for protesting with signs, but that did seem to have a positive impact in the abortion debate. Those righteous voices that gathered yearly for 50 years, did no violence but kept raising the cry of the unborn to the ears of those, even in the church, who preferred not to hear about it. So in conclusion Noel, to my way of thinking, it is not a political solution, nor will abstaining from the debate be best. It is both.
Back in the time of Christ, there was a much different system of government. Caesar’s were supreme. But guess what”? Do you know why Christians were murdered by the thousands? Do you know why they were fed to the lions and other beasts of the day? It wasn’t because they said that “Jesus loves you”. It wasn’t because they preached that their sins could be forgiven, or that Jesus still could heal them. Rome was a polytheistic society. They didn’t care how many gods you believed in. Have as many as you want. Worship them if you care to. That was not a threat.
The reason they were slaughtered was because of a political statement. You see, citizens were required to make a political oath or affirmation. It was akin to saying Heil Hitler. That statement was, “Caesar is Lord”. But Christians were saying, NO… There is another king… His name is Jesus and JESUS IS LORD. That confession got you thrown to the lions. But Christians did then what I am encouraging believers to do now. Raise your voice boldly. Let our leaders know there is another king, a real king and HE IS LORD.
You might remember the story of Telemachus, the monk who ended the Roman gladiator games. He was a devout follower of Jesus Christ and abhorred these murderous games put on for entertainment. But instead of ignoring this hideous practice, he spoke up. And he did it by entering the colosseum, and imploring the gladiators to stop. He was thrust through with a sword, but got up and once again implored them in the name of love, to stop this practice. He was thrust through a second time and died on the spot.
The crowd walked out in stunned silence and there was never another gladiator game. So while he no doubt preached the gospel, he was also a man who spoke up in the public arena. It cost him his life, but changed culture which undoubtedly saved many more lives.
Thank you for your comment. You have given me the inspiration for today’s blog. Bless you Noel. Appreciate you caring enough to post a thoughtful comment!
Thank you Michael for giving me the courtesy of making such a long and comprehensive response to my concerns. You raised many new and interesting points and appreciate the power and logic of your arguments and am almost (but not entirely) won over to your side. Thank you, once again, for indulging me in this debate.
Thank you Noel… You will see more of my thoughts in the blog I am about to post and mail out. Thank you again for your inspiration!
The Roman Empire was not a constitutional republic as we have in the United States. Even with that Paul had rights as a Roman Citizen and demanded his rights.
28 The commander answered, “With a large sum I obtained this citizenship.”
And Paul said, “But I was born a citizen.”
29 Then immediately those who were about to examine him withdrew from him; and the commander was also afraid after he found out that he was a Roman, and because he had bound him.
The Black Robe Regiment played a significant role in the American Revolution by providing spiritual and moral guidance to the soldiers and the people of the colonies. They helped to galvanize support for the cause of independence, and many of them actively participated in the war effort.
Some notable members of the Black Robe Regiment include John Peter Muhlenberg, a Lutheran pastor who preached a sermon on Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 in 1776, which famously concluded with him removing his clerical robes to reveal a military uniform and enlisting in the Continental Army; and Jonas Clark, a Congregationalist minister who hosted the Battle of Lexington and Concord in his church.
The Black Robe Regiment also played a significant role in shaping the political philosophy of the United States. They were strong advocates of individual liberty, limited government, and the separation of powers. Their influence can be seen in the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.
Bravo Helene… The black regiment is a great example, and so was Samuel West’s sermon “On The Right to Rebel” based on Romans 13! We’ve lost a lot but we shall recover. Thanks for sharing! BTW… Patriots Handbook by Dr. George Grant is an excellent source you would greatly enjoy reading from!
Thanks, for the info on West’s sermon and Patriots Handbook. Book #2 will be Godly Governance… after I publish Godly Capitalism. 😀
Love it Helene! Proud of you!
Thank you Helene for your insightful remarks. I found your reference to the Apostle Paul particularly relevant and instructive.
Let the TRUTH be told! I stand with you, Michael Pink! I’m a Canadian, and I see this stuff happening in my country, too. It’s terrible! And we do need to rise up and start fighting for righteousness and justice in our countries. We’ve gotten too comfortable. We’ve let down our guard and the people of our nations by surrendering to complacency. But! We can rise up again and fight the good fight! May we be the ones who stand in the gap declaring, “GOD KEEP OUR LAND GLORIOUS AND FREE” and “WE WILL STAND ON GUARD FOR THEE” for all generations! AMEN!
Hi Karen… Having grown up in Canada (Ontario and B.C.) and seeing what is now transpiring there, I am so encouraged to hear your fighting spirit. Thank you for not caving in and also for posting your comment!
Christians must stand for God’s righteous standards. We are the Light of the world.
Well said! You’ve raised the divine urgency bell indeed. Thanks!
Thank you Hazel!
WOW LINDA! What a powerful passage. I love that psalm. Thank you for sharing!
May Yehovah G-d bless & keep you as you help sound alarm for those of us asleep / afraid @ wheel…
Thank you for this & I will definitely be sharing it.
Keep strong brother!
Thank you Barbara! Please share far and wide!
AMEN! Let’s all be in prayer for President Trump and for our great nation. We are called to duty. We have a mandate from the Lord. Let’s rise and shine!
Yes Rana! Thank you for being one of the voices echoing in heaven and earth today!
That was excellently written. Truth spoken. We are a nation in decline and we have two levels of justice. One for the hard working citizens and the other for the elites that have been lying to us and robbing from us. I believe it is soon over for them. God will not be mocked. Thank you Michael for speaking truth.
Thank you Regina! Appreciate your perspective and for sharing it in this forum!
I stand in agreement with you Michael. We declare the counsel of the Lord concerning our nations shl stand !!!!
Thank you Myky! Keep declaring and make His voice through you, known!
Appreciate your steadfastness in the Word, which forms your worldview and in turn allows the wisdom of Jesus to shine through in your words. Judging from the enemy’s blowback against you… he’s feeling the effect of the Awakening that’s happening. Blessings.
Thank you Joan! I appreciate the steadfastness you have also shown in your pursuit of the Lord, His kingdom and His righteousness! Thanks for posting!
Agree. Brave heart. Your words are the boldest I’ve seen from those who influence culture at any level. But particularly from your perspective and reputation.
Praying for you, your strength. As you stand against the culturally deranged darkness. Shining the Light of truth. Freeing us from the dominion of darkness. Exposing the deceptive deeds of lawlessness.
It is Not going where the deceived ones think it is going. The gates of hell will NOT prevail. Heaven’s victory has already been won.
We must stand firm together. In the Way. The Truth. The Life. Advancing His Kingdom. On earth. As it is in heaven. To all nations.
1 John 1:9; 2:6; 3:8; 4:4; 5:4
Do not fear.
God is able.
Love what you shared Don! Thank you for your prayers and for your comments!
Keep pressing on my brother!
Silence in the face of evil is evil . Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Well put Michael many patriots are working together. How and who do you recommend we connect with the ones that are not just trying to raise $ for themselves? Love you heart bro!
Love the quote from Dietrich Bonhoeffer Robert! Thank you for being such a valiant warrior yourself, along with the mighty woman of God who wars alongside of you, an equal threat to the powers of darkness. Love you both!
Good morning Bro. Michael;
I think that this is the most important blog you have written to date. I have to remind myself to fear not and that we are here for a reason. I refuse to look for an escape hatch but will continue to pray for FATHER’S leading in how I can be used for HIS purposes. Let us all stand firm and live from HIS indwelling strength as we live moment by moment which is CHRIST’S only way.
So proud of you Ken!!! Thank you for posting and for standing in the gap for our nation!
I’m in full and complete agreement!
I have learned to agree with truth and not people. As a “why” person, I often enquire of the LORD when things are happening, why are they happening.🤔When the LORD reminded me HE has used an ass in the past, it gave me peace to know HE can still use asses today.😂🤣😂 As long as JESUS CHRIST continues to have the government on HIS shoulders, I will continue to sing “It is Well With My Soul” and do whatever the HOLY SPIRIT leads me to say or do. It has cost me relationships and yet I continue to move in obedience to GOD. Whatever GOD’s agenda is – that is the one I will be carrying out. Selah.
Well said Crystal… I agree that it is always best to side with truth (Truth) rather than a person or personality.
Michael, God has been speaking for quite a while to the “truthers”and whistleblowers and said it is time to speak up. You are doing so. Fear not. God’s Got You and I agree with everything you said about what’s happening in our country. I will not shrink back. I am doing my part and going forward. It is not time for Jesus to return as we need a Billion Soul Harvest as many prophets/ teachers/ evangelists have been speaking!
Hi Cynthia… So glad you took the time to comment and encourage us! Love your stand for righteousness!
100%. Thank you for saying it.
Think you for commenting my friend!
Pray without ceasing. Only thing that can save America now!!!
Watch and pray as Jesus told us in Luke 21:36. And as James said, “Faith without works is dead.”
Bless you Charlie! Thanks for posting a comment!
Brother Pink thank you so much for being empowered by the Holy Ghost to speak what is and was needed to be said
Thank you Michael Lewis! Appreciate you my brother!
I am 100% with you on this and have been for many years. We definitely can do more when we work together. I would like to share your blog post with my community (as soon as your website comes back up). I work with parents who are making a mass exodus out of public schools right now by helping them start home schooling. We know they’ll come after that too, but right now we need to teach our own children rather than allow the government to keep indoctrinating them. Here’s my website and let me know how I can support what you do. https://fetchthegoodness.com
Love your website and work Kellie! KUDOS!
We are setting up an affiliate arrangement for the Jesus School of Business and perhaps that would be something you could support?
I will be inviting folks to learn about that when it is complete and set up. Thank you so much for commenting!
Homeschooled for 25+ years – this makes my heart happy!!! Thanks Kellie 🙂
I’v been saying this for awhile now only not nearly as well as you have! Battling the crazy conspiracy theorist mental mind games. Like you I just cannot not see and not name what I see.There is a righteous fire in all this. What boggles my mind is you can say ‘look see that’ and they are so unwilling to see that it makes you think you are crazy or missing something. Thank you for doing this.
We stand with you,
Thank You. Right on!!!
Thank you Jane! God bless you and we appreciate you sharing this!
I agree with you entirely. We His church need to rise up and pray for the changes. The spirit of deceit runs rapid, need to send to the abyss. Let the spirit of truth come from the top down to schools, media, corporations. We need to pray for righteousness and justice to come back to America.
We need to pray for all wickedness to be exposed and expelled
We need to pray for President Trump, my heart breaks at the humiliation he is going through by people who are wicked. Thank you for saying this.
Thank you for lending your voice to this discussion Yolanda! So appreciated!
My son and I were at a Benham Brothers Expert Ownership conference in Charlotte, in Oct 2021 I believe – this is where we heard you for the first time. Been getting your emails ever since!
This blog hits it dead on the head – sharing the link –
I for one will read MORE of your emails and blogs bc of it, not delete you!! I will be bold as well, in the home front and in our business! We should NOT be shrinking back in these dark times to stand for Christ – and goodness knows none of God’s people should ever have an escapist mindset – that’s the LAST thing we need to do!
Likened to the battles that inevitably go on in a war, we are now in pockets of unbelievably heavy artillery raining down by the enemy. In a war, anyone found trying to escape was labeled a coward. Those who are just sitting idle in the trenches are almost as bad – speaking to myself as well!!
Oh, let it not be so among us who took up our cross for Christ when we were saved, and so became one who is commanded by Jesus to take the Gospel to the whole world (Mark 16:15)! Jesus never mentioned any stipulations on that, that there would ever be any time or circumstances that would make it ok to back down from that mission. We must fight!
Thank you thank you brother for publicly declaring God’s truths.
Thank you Devica!!! So appreciate what you shared and thanks for mentioning our meeting in Charlotte! I’ve got another firebrand of a blog being posted and mailed out shortly. Hope you will see it and share it far and wide.
Great post, Michael! We need to stand strong in the power of God and obediently follow Him! I don’t think enough churches are teaching about the spiritual warfare that you spoke about. I don’t think enough people know that DC is under the control of evil, just like the evil that tried to stop Gabriel from reaching Daniel with a word from God. The Holy Spirit provides wisdom, strength, power and endurance to do God’s will! We are called to be exemplary followers of Christ and as we follow Him through the power of the Holy Spirit we are called to be exemplary leaders for Christ. We are His ambassadors here on earth, and the King will only remove His ambassadors before His full assault on the evil in the world. As ambassadors and soldiers under the command of Christ, we need to be putting on our armor daily and listening to our General’s orders each day. May God give you the continued boldness in your teaching and call to spiritual arms! May God use His Church in America to shine brightly in our darkened country!
Thank you Gordon for your insightful comment my brother!
This is an incredibly convicting and inspiring commentary! I will be down on my knees (figuratively, following last month’s knee surgery!) imploring God for His divine intervention in our society, and praying for our nation to seek Him. And on the “where the rubber meets the road” front, reminding myself of the date & time to testify in the upcoming legislative hearing on the bill to protect women and girls from males in locker rooms and sports. Thank you Michael for speaking as Paul would if he were in our midst today!
Hi Suzy… Thank you for weighing in on this. Proud of you for making the time to testify in the upcoming legislative hearing on the bill to protect women and girls from males in locker rooms and sports!
This world is the way it is because we Christian got comfortable. We chose to compete in ministry. Wanted to make impressions and we forgot where the Lord found us. He saved us, healed our wounds, lifted us but with purpose. To be Ambassadors of Heaven on earth. Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. He called us out of darkness into the light to be witnesses. We forgot. We enjoyed the prophesies, jumped and felt the goosebumps but we forgot Gods purposes in our lives. Let’s change this. Let’s go into all the world and be a voice. Let take our authority and dominion back and be like Moses. Let my people go. Like Joshua, like Joseph. It’s time.
Good observation Edith. Thanks for posting your comment!
So glad to hear another voice encouraging the church in this vein. We were redeemed for action, not ease/comfort. Our identity is “warriors” leading (our Father) the King’s armies against the powers of darkness to advance his Kingdom. It’s time we step into our role and fulfill our purpose.
Thanks for posting your comment!
Well said Michael. Thanks for standing strong.
Thank you Mark! God bless you my brother!
I’m not American, but learned a lot by some of them. Jesus can’t return yet, the gospel hasn’t been preached to all the world, let alone making disciples. It’s up to the BOC (body of Christ). There’s always hope, what the enemy means for evil the Lord can turn it around. Genesis 50:20. We have to realize that the antichrist cannot have a seat while the BOC prays! Apparently he grooms one for every generation, but we hold him back by praying in unity. Just like he couldn’t get Jesus killed, but Jesus died at the right time. Notice, how we can’t seem to unite, (the enemy makes sure of that) yet Jesus prayed for us in John 17:9, 11, 14-18. Just to mention a few verses. It doesn’t take a lot of people to agree, just two or three, as Matthew 18:18-20 says. I’ve noticed that people don’t want to pray, probably because they think you have to do it for hours, which isn’t true to begin with. (Don’t get me wrong, interceding can take hours) How long does it take to agree with someone about something? Genesis 11: 6-9 relates the story of babel, where the Lord intervened. This is so powerful, because this was an evil intent. The Hebrew “zamam” describes this when you go to the root. It’s not just the imagination, it didn’t stay just in their head, they discussed it and took action. We are living in the decade of the mouth, how much do you think the enemy want us to shut up? Or be preoccupied with all the missiles he’s throwing at us? We have to be as shrewd as snakes and harmless as doves. Matthew 10:16 we are sent not went, which means we have Heaven behind us. As for me, I ask the Lord to put me together with the right fiery person so that we can accomplish His will. The last time this happened was last December and as a result I went to Switzerland to a place I haven’t been before. We were able to pray, share, intercede and reach out to the people in the area. Looking back, I know part of this was because I spend hours at the airport praying, due to some problems a few years before. If we would only understand, that if everybody did their bit, somebody else also can, if I don’t, somebody else has to come in my place. Which may take up more precious time. There are lots of examples out there from men and women that weren’t God’s first choice, but they obeyed God. A wise person taught me that obeying God equals loving Him, i.o.w. there is a corresponding action. If I love Him, I obey Him instead of saying it all the time like it’s an emotional thing. So, BOC of America, unite all your states and let’s stand in agreement that the evil powers will be exposed, and they only have one choice: repent, or the Lord will deal with them because He is the righteous JUDGE!
