The Silent Majority Needs to Stop Being Silent

For years we have heard about the silent majority and I have wondered as of late why must they remain silent. It’s reported that President Nixon first used the term back in the sixties. Then another popular term arose ten years later called the moral majority, which I might add, has also remained silent. On the other hand, it is the fringe groups of heathenisms that we hear the most about, leading many to think that they are the majority. Well, they are not! So, it’s past time! The silent majority needs to stop being silent. A very wise person once said, “It’s far easier to kill a terrorist than to slay an ideology …”. What we are fighting and need to raise our voice about is education, because an ideology is built and maintained with education. This has been proved time and again by teaching young children to hate the enemies of the host country, allowing the cycle of hatred to continue for years. What can we do to let our voices be heard above the crowd? More importantly, can our voices bring about change before it’s too late? With God’s guidance we will attempt to answer these two questions.

Liking, commenting, and sharing amongst ourselves simply won’t be enough to change anything. Moreover, if our only influence is on Facebook, we will never change the ideology in this country and the world. We must change public education and the entertainment industry. We must take back our children or all will be lost. God told His people the importance of raising our children correctly. The Bible says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). The problem is we no longer raise our children in the way they should go. What we have done is to turn them over to the State allowing the State to raise them. When the State is not raising them then we have allowed them to sit in front of the TV set allowing the entertainment industry to continue raising them. There is no wonder that this country is in such a mess. They have indoctrinated our children from the cradle to adulthood while we sat idly by doing nothing to stop it. What this has created is a whole population of mindless automatons. Let me explain.

I have had face to face conversations with these people raised by the State. On the surface they appear very intelligent. They have memorized most of what they have learned and can quote it verbatim. However, I soon discovered they had no real depth or understanding on what they were quoting. They simply were parroting what their professors had said. In response, we must speak loudly and close our eyes and ears to their canned rhetoric and propaganda. Stop listening. Stop your ears. Why do you post or repeat their nonsense? Why do you read it? Have you tricked your mind into believing that you must understand the secret powers of darkness? Be careful otherwise you will be led astray by assimilating what you think makes sense. No wonder so many so-called Christians have such a mixed bag of theology. Believe me there is enough to keep you busy for two life time’s just understanding the depth of God’s truth with no mixture of error. There is enough to keep you busy applying that truth to your life so that you can be all that God wants you to be. Growing from one degree of glory to another will keep you busy for the rest of your life.

Let me ask you a question. How are your children and grandchildren doing? You noticed I did not ask you how’s their relationship with the church and its activities. I did not ask you how well they are doing with their secular studies. I did not ask you how they are doing with keeping their room clean and their obedience to you. No, what I am asking you is, how is their Spiritual growth coming along? This Spiritual growth MUST start at the earliest age possible. Yes, they too can learn how to speak to God and how to listen to His voice through the Spirit. They can learn early on what pleases God and how not to grieve the Holy Spirit. Their Spiritual upbringing will give them a completely different world view. It will teach them what God expects. It will teach them why obedience to His commands will keep them safe and allow them to live life to its fullest. They will soon discover that God has truly given them EVERYTHING they need for life and godliness.

Believe me they will never learn these things in the world. In fact, the world will teach them if they hear the voice of God they will need psychological counsel and drugs to cure their problem. The world fears what it does not understand. Instead of allowing a person to become a new creature truly transformed by the indwelling Spirit they will do everything in their power to stop the transformation. They will offer your children different alternatives. They will be taught that they can change their sex if they don’t like who they are, thus condoning the transgender lifestyle. They teach them that it is acceptable to have two daddies’ or two mommies’ thus condoning homosexuality. They teach them that their ultimate authority is the State and if they feel uncomfortable they can stop listening to their biological parents. They teach them that it’s ok to choose whatever religion that most interest them. They will even allow them to experiment by learning about the religion of Islam. In fact, they can become whatever they want as long as it conforms to the social norms. Friends, we must redeem our children and grandchildren before it’s too late. Believe me this will only get worse if we remain silent. It is time: the silent majority needs to stop being silent. I will take it a step further it’s time to boycott public education and everything coming out of Hollywood. God give us strength to stand firm.

The Last War to be Waged on Earth

As the battle lines are drawn between North Korea and the United States there is a greater battle to be waged. As the battle lines are drawn between the liberals and conservatives there is a greater battle to be waged. As the battle lines are drawn between those who want to make Jerusalem the capital of Israel and those who don’t there is a greater battle to be waged. A battle of all battles that will end life on earth as we now know it. This last war to be waged on earth is between the children of Light and the sons of darkness. This will not be your typical battle. Nuclear and biological weapons will not suffice. Protests and marches will have no effect. Even putting together a digital army in the millions, will not change the outcome. The last war to be waged on earth will be directed by God, our true Commander in Chief. A war that will truly defeat the enemy and scuttle the sons of darkness. God is doing and will continue to do His part. He is calling His children, the children of Light, to do their part.

We will discuss our part first, then God’s part. Believe me, the saying is true you will either be for us or against us, there will be no sitting on the fence. Fence sitting is reserved for the lukewarm church and believe me you do not want to be a part of that group! The Bible says concerning the lukewarm church, “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth” (Revelation 3:16). To be cast out as unbelievers into utter darkness. To experience the horrible consequences of pure evil, a filth that cannot be easily washed off. The good news however is that even this last representative church on earth has a chance to repent. The Bible says, “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; If any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me” (Revelation 3:19-20). To do so will allow you to become a true child of Light and join Him in the last battle here on earth.

Yes, we still have a chance to become true children of Light and join Jesus Christ in the battle. Amen. To be a true child of Light there must not be any darkness at all. The Bible says, “For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light” (Ephesians 5:8). So, to walk as children of Light we must get rid of, turn from, all evil. To not look on it or embrace it. Of course, the Bible tells the new believers how to do it. To put off the old sin filled life and in the place of it put on the new life modeled after Christ. Embrace and model the new Christian attributes, the fruit of the Spirit, which is, love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance (See Galatians 5:22-23). To do so in time will see a full harvest of this Spiritual fruit. It will not be long before you realize all that’s in the world, everything taught and practiced, is opposed to your Christian faith. For now we are children of Light and can no longer walk in darkness.

So, how do we join the battle? The Bible says, “The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light” (Romans 13:12). Putting on the armor of Light clearly indicates that we have cast off the works of darkness, which means we are no longer participating in the works of darkness. We no longer listen to their teachings or entertainment that mock God. No longer do we allow our children or grandchildren to listen to their teachings or entertainment that mock God. To teach evolution in their schools or in their entertainment mocks God. It’s also a mockery to teach and accept their other lifestyles of homosexuality and the transgender, the killing of unborn children, and their other so-called gods. Trust me, the Muslims are not the Klingons and their religion does not deserve our respect. We simply can no longer listen to the lies of this age. To do so is a mockery and clearly dims our Light and puts us on the fence with the lukewarm church. If we are not with Him, then we are truly against Him in the battle being waged against the powers of darkness.

To put on the armor of Light projects the Light of God. The Light of God is His holiness for all to see. To project this Light is to project everything good and decent. Everything that He has done and doing for His beloved children. To just say that God has saved us misses all the beauty of that salvation. He has saved us from the powers of the enemy. We are no longer held captive by his lies. We have been set free to live a brand-new life in Christ. The Bible says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (II Corinthians 5:17). To believe the lies of the enemy, that you still need to grapple with your old life, calls God a liar. God said if you are in Christ (a believer) then you are a new creation; the old has gone. To believe the lies of the enemy, that you need the world’s counsel, is to call God a liar, because He said that He has given us everything we need for life and godliness. To be a child of Light and join Him in the battle we must believe His teachings and not the world’s. Furthermore, we have the Gift of the Holy Spirit who comes bearing Spiritual Gifts to protect, encourage and lead us, His children, to victory over the enemy and his lies. Beyond the physical realm there is the Spiritual where we must also take the battle, which I have written extensively about in my book Stand Firm, but beyond the scope of this article. We soon discover that the enemy is powerless to overcome the Gospel message proclaimed boldly by all His children, children of the Light.

Now for God’s part. We must come out from among them. The Bible says, “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4). The good news is, if we heed the angel’s voice and truly come out as stated above, proving ourselves to be children of Light, then we will not receive of her plagues (See also I Thessalonians 5:9). On the other hand, if we don’t heed the angel’s voice and continue living in darkness, we will experience the full measure of God’s wrath along with the rest of fallen humanity. Take a moment and read through the book of Revelation or listen to it on Tribulation Radio every night. Friends, God’s wrath is serious and should give everyone a wake-up call. Let me be clear that God’s wrath is not meant to punish, that will come later, but to open the eyes of the unbelievers. Our job as the children of Light is to let the world know what’s happening, to encourage them to accept the truth claims of the Gospel. We must work hand in hand with God, in this last war to be waged on earth. Amen

Christian Soldiers It’s Time to Fight Back

Evil has gone unchecked for way too long in this country and around the world. It’s time. Christian soldiers it’s time to fight back. If we don’t all will be lost. It’s not the Muslims we should fear. It’s not North Korea or Iran. It is the evil one who is waging war against the hearts of men and women, and winning the war. Step by step he is taking the entire world captive to perform every evil intention of their mind. To strip them of all morality and the sense of right and wrong. To lead them into every manner of perversion and wickedness. To give them the illusion that they can help themselves with the latest counseling of humanistic psychiatry and their taking of prescription drugs. Stand up Christian soldiers it’s time to fight back.

This is a real war with casualties on both sides. We can no longer sit back and allow evil to destroy this country and the world. New and improved legislation will not put evil in check. It will not change the heart of man. It will not stop the mass shootings or the senseless killings. As God’s children we are the only hope for humanity. As soldiers of the Cross we are the only ones who can really put evil in check. We are the only ones who can overcome the enemy. How long will we sit in our churches or on the mountain top and do nothing? Casualties are mounting on both sides. Have you not noticed that the mass killings are getting closer together now? That everyone is at a loss as to the motive. The real motive for the killings. The world does not have the answer. The government does not have the answer. The man on the street does not have the answer. The other world religions do not have the answer. Dear friends and fellow soldiers we are the only ones who have the answer. We must fight back, or all will be lost.

So how does the Christian fight back? How can we wage war against the enemy? Is it possible to turn back the tide of evil in this country and around the world? Yes, it is possible. As God’s soldiers we can turn back the tide of evil. We can render a fatal blow to the enemy. You might be saying, “I can’t do that!” I would agree, you can’t but He can. God working through His soldiers will not only turn back the evil, but He will ultimately destroy it. Although the battle belongs to the Lord, He chooses to do this work through His soldiers, soldiers of the Cross.1  Although God will continue to pour out His wrath on all ungodliness, He will still do His greatest work through His soldiers, soldiers of the Cross.2 All the power of the universe is put at our disposal to be used in our fight against the enemy. This is the same power that created the world. This is the same power that raised Christ from the grave. This is the same power that made you into a new creation. All this and much more is available to the Christian soldier if he is willing to put on the full armor of God and join Him in the fight. Christian do you want to learn how to wage war against the enemy or do you want to just sit back and watch the casualties mount up on both sides?

If you say, yes, I want to fight back, then the first step is to ensure that you are a true follower of Christ. That you believe that God has made you into a new creation and old things are passing away. 3You believe that God has forgiven you of all your sins as well as the guilt. 4You believe that the Holy Spirit resides in you.5  Giving you your own unique Spiritual Gifts and helping you to become all that Christ wants you to be by producing all the Spiritual fruits in their season.6 You believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God who came as all man and all God to die on the Cross and be raised to life on the third day, and sits on His throne in Heaven next to the Father.7 You believe in the Gospel message that we are saved by grace and not by works, lest any man should boast.8 Finally, along with many other things, you believe that God is growing you from one degree of glory to another.9 If you believe these things you have taken your first step in becoming a soldier of the Cross. Ready to fight back.

Secondly, it’s time to put on the full armor of God.10 Without it my friend you will not stand against the enemy. You will not be able to repel the flaming arrows of the evil one. You will end up as a Christian casualty. So, let’s put on the full armor of God. One piece at a time. The helmet of salvation.11 You must be truly saved in the Lord. Then we put on the belt of truth.12  Knowing and believing that God has made you into a new creation where old things are truly passing away.13 This is key to fighting our fight against the enemy who has convinced the unbelieving world that they are still in bondage to the old life. That they are in need of worldly counselors and psychiatric drugs to deal with their incurable condition. It is these drugs that have opened Pandora’s Box allowing the enemy to enter into their hearts and minds. To lead them to do the most horrific crimes against humanity. To practice every form of perversion and wickedness. Although the belt of truth encompasses all the truth claims of the Bible and the proclamation of that truth to fallen humanity, it must encompass the truth that we are new creations growing spiritually from one degree of glory to another.14

Now we are ready for the breastplate of righteousness.15 Without this you will be soundly defeated by the enemy the moment you take the field. You cannot fight evil with evil. You cannot fight hate with hate. You cannot fight anger with anger. Our success in the field, in our fight against the enemy is measured by how diametrically opposite we are of evil. As we become more obedient to the laws of Christ and producing every Spiritual fruit we begin to realize our profound strength in Christ to overcome the enemy. We are not stationary soldiers.16 We don’t simply sit in the church building, but we are quite mobile and must be, if we are going to engage the enemy. The enemy is whispering in one ear, we must be there speaking in the other. We must allow our feet to take us to the people who are being ravished by the enemy. They need to hear the gospel of peace when their lives are filled with turmoil, confusion, and anxiety. For everyone released from captivity renders a blow to the enemy and puts him to flight.

Of course, Christian soldier, you are not going to get very far without faith. So, when we take up the shield of faith it will extinguish the flaming arrows of the evil one.17 The enemy knows without faith we are useless in the field of battle. Without faith our many and varied Spiritual Gifts are useless. Without faith we have no access to the power of heaven. Dear soldier, we must have faith. Trust me the enemy can be ruthless and the first thing he will attack is your faith telling you that you have no power to stand against him. Telling you that this job is for the more experienced. That this job is for the pastor, who do you think you are trying to rescue those who have been taken captive by me, the devil says. But the Lord says, Pick up your shield of faith. Then pick up the sword of the Spirit to render a blow against the enemy.18 Dear soldier, you need to have God’s Word written on your heart and ready to be flung at the enemy when we are led by the indwelling Spirit. Just try to minister to that antagonistic neighbor. Just try to tell him that God’s has all the answers to his problems and the enemy will try to trip you up, but you have the most powerful weapon in your arsenal. The sword of the Spirit. So, use it dear soldier and free another captive and render a blow to the enemy.

Christian soldiers it’s time to fight back. If we don’t, casualties will continue to mount up on both sides. The war is raging. The wrath of God is being poured out.19 It’s time to fight back. Every time you release someone from captivity you will render a blow to the enemy. Amen

Commonality of the Lukewarm Church and Catastrophes

To use the lukewarm church and catastrophes in the same sentence unveils what most would like to escape, the Great Tribulation. There appears to be a commonality between the lukewarm church and the increase in catastrophes worldwide driving most to seek additional signs. For two thousand years prophets and seers have foretold the end of all things as we know it. Even the Bible is replete with detailed scenarios of the end time events spawning numerous interpretations most in rock solid cement. What if. What if the time has finally come. No matter what your interpretation, you feel compelled to do something. Going to a mountain top, sitting down and waiting for Christ to come is not an option. As world events get worse and the Church slips deeper into lukewarmness we can argue how close the Great Tribulation is or we can prepare to stand firm in the day in which we live.

If we say, don’t talk to me about the Tribulation, because I know that Christ is coming any minute now to rapture me, before it gets too bad. Moreover, we know our Bible says we are not destined for wrath. I would be the first one to agree, but can we talk back to God? Are we going to tell God that He is not permitted to pour out his wrath on an unrepentant world? On a world that’s worse, in many respects, than Sodom and Gomorrah. Well, the good news is we don’t need to talk back to God. We can allow His wrath to be poured out, because we are standing on His promise that His wrath will not touch us. The Bible says, “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ” (I Thessalonians 5:9). Therefore, if we see the pagan swept away in the flood of God’s divine wrath and we are left behind to strengthen what remains then we will thank our God. We thank Him that we have obtained salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ. On the other hand, if we too are killed by some great catastrophe then we have the assurance that it was not caused by God’s wrath. No, it’s cause was the Providence of God. It is simply our time to die, our time to be raptured away into the glories of Heaven. Praise God.

Indeed, these are most amazing times when one home is consumed with a raging fire and the one next to it is left without a touch, not even the smell of smoke, or one person is swept away by flood waters and the other person by some great miracle was never harmed. We have seen this in every so called natural disaster to descend upon the planet. One will be taken in sudden death and the other one will be left completely unharmed. Both are reminiscent of the biblical account. The Bible says, “Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left” (Matthew 24:40-41). We cannot explain how one can be taken and the other left no more than we can explain why one person dies at a very young age and the other lives beyond a hundred. The whole point that Christ makes, is we should be ready at any time to go and be with the Lord or be left in this world to endure more hardships or persecutions caused by an unbelieving world. He makes this very clear in the next verse that says, “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come” (Matthew 24:42). We do not know what hour He comes for us, nor do we know what hour He will come in the clouds for everyone. At His coming some will have the great privilege to stay and build His Kingdom here on earth while others will be swept away into everlasting punishment.

Night is approaching for every man, when he cannot work. Let us work while it is still day. The Bible says, “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world” (John 9:4-5). The meaning is the night of death, and of the grave, and suggesting His own death. The night of death is a time when nothing can be done. The Bible also says, “There is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom in the grave” (Ecclesiastes 9:10). While Jesus was alive, before His death on the Cross, He would do His great work. He was the light of the world. So, until Christ comes at the end of the age or at the end of our life, we need to be working, while its still day. While it is still light. While we are still alive. So, if the rapture, His coming in the clouds where every eye will see, never comes until after the Great Tribulation then so be it. Let us roll up our sleeves and get to work

We simply cannot go up to the mountain top, sit down and wait for His coming in the clouds. It so sad that so many in our day are doing that. They will spend all their time looking at the signs (sitting on the mountain top) and not doing the Kingdom work. They will spend all their time discussing their take on eschatology (sitting on the mountain top) and not doing the Kingdom work. Or they will spend all their time playing games, going to pot lucks, movies, surfing the net or posting on Social Media (sitting on the mountain top) and not doing the Kingdom work. The Kingdom work is hard, but we are all called to it. Not just a select few, but all of us who are saved and followers of Jesus Christ. Until Jesus Christ comes in the clouds at the end of the age or until he comes for you at the end of your life then we need to stay busy doing the Kingdom work. And there is much work to be done. Encouraging the faint hearted, strengthening the weak minded, and above all lighting a fire under the lukewarm church.

So, how do we light a fire under the lukewarm church? They say that most learning is caught and not taught. I sincerely believe there is truth in this statement. Especially, when I look at the life of Jesus Christ and His Holy Apostles. They all were perfect examples of living out the life that they were teaching. Yes, they modeled Christianity. The new life in Christ. So, do we really want to make a change in the lukewarm church then we first must make a change in our own lives. Are we really modeling the new life in Christ? Are we really on fire for Christ. Are we truly excited about this new life? Are we so excited that we can’t stop telling others about it? Are we truly growing from one degree of glory to another? Are we demonstrating all the fruits of the Spirit? Are we using our Spiritual Gifts to the glory of God? When we can answer yes to all these questions then we are lighting a fire under the lukewarm church. Dear children, let me implore you to come down from the mountain top, roll up your sleeves and start working in the Kingdom by demonstrating the new life in Christ.

So, what is the commonality between the increase in catastrophes and the lukewarm church? When the Christian churches are no longer viable in stopping the increase in lawlessness or every manner of perversion then it invites God to pour out His wrath upon an unrepentant world. There is a great deal of similarities between the trumpets of God’s judgments and the Bowels of His wrath with the increase in catastrophes. If this continues without true repentance from the lukewarm church then every follower of Christ in every country will be persecuted. Let me leave you with these words from God’s Word, “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men” (Matthew 5:13). Friends, it’s time to raise our voices for truth and righteousness to be heard around the world and being unafraid to model our new life in Christ or suffer the consequences of being trodden underfoot by men.
