I stand amazed as I am sure you do as I look at the present day culture of America and the world. I am daily hearing the words of the Prophet Isaiah:

Isaiah  5:20-24

20 Woe to those who call evil good , and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, And prudent in their own sight! 

22 Woe to men mighty at drinking wine, Woe to men valiant for mixing intoxicating drink,

23 Who justify the wicked for a bribe, And take away justice from the righteous man! 

24 Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble, And the flame consumes the chaff, So their root will be as rottenness, And their blossom will ascend like dust; Because they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts, And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.  NKJV

For a lifetime I have watched the church fall deeper and deeper into a spiritual slumber that many will not awaken from. Thousands of churches remain dark as fear driven leaders hold their flocks captive to the narrative of the crazed politicians and media!

The so called “grace message leaders have now manifested what they really are; fearful and faithless. They went from fear of man and fear of not being politically correct to fear of sickness and death!

Half the people who call themselves Christian won’t even vote or vote for the Democratic party whose entire platform is anti-Christ. I keep seeing a picture of the late Justice Ginsburg standing before the judgment seat of Christ, with millions of spirits of aborted children bearing witness against her.

I would imagine a woman’s right to choose has a different outcome in the high court of Heaven! Who would have imagined it would take a “Donald Trump” to have ten times the boldness against evil than the average American Pastor?

Who would have imagined that it would take Donald Trump to appoint three conservative Supreme Court Justices and fill 300 Federal judgeships in
the Federal Government with conservatives.  Jesus said it best “a tree is known by its fruit”, not its narrative or talking points!

I remember nearly four years ago now when Trump first took office, my Pastor called me and told me he had just gotten off the phone with one of the Pastors who had been summoned to the oval office to meet and pray for the President. He told me that the POTUS said this to them. “Gentlemen make no mistake about this, this is not a fight between political parties, this is a fight between good and evil!”

According to a recent poll on Fox News last night 54% of Americans still believe abortion on demand should be outlawed except in extreme circumstances. So where are they on election day? I know where I will be and I hope you will be, at the polls “making America accountable before God again!”

Hebrews 10:32-11:1

32 But recall the former days in which, after you were illuminated, you endured a great struggle with sufferings: 33 partly while you were made a spectacle both by reproaches and tribulations, and partly while you became companions of those who were so treated; 

34 for you had compassion on me in my chains, and joyfully accepted the plundering of your goods, knowing that you have a better and an enduring possession for yourselves in heaven. 

35 Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.

36 For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:

37 “For yet a little while, And He who is coming will come and will not tarry. 

38 Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.”  

39 But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul. NKJV

We vote in heaven with our prayers, and then vote on earth with our authority at the polls.  We must elect men and women who will uphold biblical standards, and we must see this through in prayer.

Be Blessed,

Pastor Dave

PS – From now until the election and maybe after, Gary Nangle is leading people in prayer for our nation every Sunday AM from 8:50 to 9:30 in the Youth Room.  Let’s join our faith and release our faith as we pray for our nation to turn back to God!

1 John 2 1:6 TPT
You are my dear children, and I write these things to you so that you won’t sin. But if anyone does sin, we continually have a forgiving Redeemer who is face-to-face with the Father: Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.

The New Commandment

Here’s how we can be sure that we’ve truly come to know God: if we keep his commands. If someone claims, “I have come to know God by experience,” yet doesn’t keep God’s commands, he is a phony and the truth finds no place in him. But the love of God will be perfected within the one who obeys God’s Word. We can be sure that we’ve truly come to live in intimacy with God, not just by saying, “I am intimate with God,” but by walking in the footsteps of Jesus.

Today we are seeing the reality of deception on a culture like we have not seen in my lifetime. Darkness is manifesting not because it is more powerful than light but because the light has been turned off for the majority of people in our land. I would venture to say right now that 90% of children are being raised in America without a Biblical worldview being taught to them.

Now even fewer people are attending church where they should be learning the truths of the Kingdom of God and they sure are not watching online! It is really a testimony to the power of light to see any morality at all still existing in our land. With just a remnant of the nation still actually serving God there is still some light in the land.

This November, we are once again going to cast our vote towards light or darkness.There are three sins the Bible specifically declares will bring absolute judgment in the land, killing of the unborn or children, homosexuality, and bestiality. You will vote for two of the three this November! Although we know bestiality exist in our land it has not yet become a platform for a political party like the other two have. If you vote Democratic, you vote for God to judge our land as you have joined the deviates who have overturned God’s moral law in their wills.

Despite all his imperfections President Trump has supported the cause of Christ in our Nation more than any other President in my lifetime including Reagan and the Bushes! As a leader in the Church I will continue to warn and shine the light into the darkness of this political agenda for same-sex marriage and abortion. The leaders of the same-sex movement having openly disclosed there true agenda is to eliminate all gender predispositions and have become so perverted in their agenda that they want every boy and girl to choose their gender and then have the government with your tax dollars pay for the sex change drugs and operations!

As a believer you will give an account before God on which agenda you support by casting your vote!

Lord, I pray today that you awaken your body to the righteous cause of protecting the unborn and now newborn and the sanctity of marriage!

It is a sad day when the republican convention has more about following the law of God than most churches, and the republican leaders are bolder for God than the pulpits of the American church!

Vote righteousness!

John 8:42-47
42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. 43 Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. 46 Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? 47 He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.” NKJV

The normal conversations I am having with so many believers today usually ends up with a phrase something like this; “why can’t people see that this is wrong”? “How can people be so deceived”? Well, Jesus answered that for us, even though I hate hearing this truth about so many, as I am sure you do as well.

I was watching a clip of a message from Joel Osteen the other day and he said “I believe that 99.9% of people are really good people with good hearts who have just made some wrong choices in life”. Thousands of his followers nodded in agreement instead of refuting the lie he just propagated which continues to keep people in darkness.

What does the light of the world, Jesus, the way the truth and the life say about the majority of humanity? He says “they do not hear, because they are not of God”. He doesn’t ever, in any way, shape, or form, even come close to saying 99.9% of people are good with good hearts. That is living at such a state of spiritual denial it isn’t even close to the truth!

Talk about falsely securing someone in their self-righteousness!

What does the word say?

Gal 3:24
24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. KJV

And what exactly does the law do? It condemns us all as depraved sinners! It teaches us that we cannot save ourselves by our own goodness and that we will likewise perish under its condemnation, if we do not embrace the grace of God through a new birth in Jesus Christ!

Jer 17:9
9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it? NKJV

Rom 3:9-20
9 What then? Are we better than they? Not at all. For we have previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin. 10 As it is written: “There is none righteous , no, not one; 11 There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God. 12 They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one.” 13 “Their throat is an open tomb; With their tongues they have practiced deceit”; “The poison of asps is under their lips”; 14 “Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.” 15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood; 16 Destruction and misery are in their ways; 17 And the way of peace they have not known.” 18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” 19 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 20 Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin. NKJV

A biblical worldview does not ever see 99.9% of people as good with good hearts. It sees 100% of people wicked, lost, and forever doomed without Christ! When I hear about believers voting democrat, knowing full well its main platform is immoral, including the abominations of, abortion, same sex marriage, and now Marxism, and then justifying it by saying well republicans are racists, I am stunned! It is not about the color of skin but it is about the practice of sin!

I challenge you to ask people who you know are not sold out blood bought followers of Christ this question. “If you died right now why should God admit you to heaven? Most will respond, I believe I am a good person, or something along that line. That is the epitomy of self-righteousness. There is no other answer than the blood of Jesus and then there is the qualifier of works that are the fruit of true faith.

All through this time of epidemic I have heard over and over in my heart:

Jer 12:5 “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 floodplain of the Jordan? NKJV

Faith is being tested right now in the land of covid, but the anti-christ is coming and woe to the ones who must face him! Normal, healthy, young believers have given up their service in corporate worship, with little to no risk to their physical lives. I fully relate and understand those who have a real legitimate threat being extra cautious, but it seems many have just taken this opportunity to forsake the body of Christ, to become self-centered, self-serving lovers of the world.

We have watched two more international stars put on church discipline these last two weeks. Jerry Falwell Jr., and Perry Stone. If they could get far enough away from Jesus while in full time service; to become enticed by the lust of the flesh, so can any of us! Stay in prayer, the word and FELLOWSHIP! Fellowship keeps us accountable to one another and helps reveal our self-deceptions!

Let’s keep fighting the good fight of faith! – TOGETHER!
