So how is this social media suppression going for you?

For us conservatives and prolifers, not so good. Suppression is pretty thick right now. On a recent post on one our Facebook pages:

Dear #Prolife Friends: Many conservative influencers are being kept from commenting on political posts, and on this media platform, includes prolife articles and events. MANY prolifers are not allowed to create groups and events OR comment on them OR share them. All of this at inauguration time. Our influence is being limited and shut down. And we have to wonder why our opinions are so important after the media chose their president. The election is over, right? So post and comment as much as you can WHILE you can. People need to know the truth.

Even so, regardless of what you think about the election, we are being shut down until AFTER the ‘inauguration’. Our media platforms are being erased as if we never existed. I get it. Influencing people is scary for a biased media.

Free thought, free speech, all being shut down in the public square. DC has put up 8′ metal walls with razor wire. Suddenly they’re okay with the police and walls. Got it.

How do you prepare for a social media blackout? Email services, alternative platforms, start a blog or two, podcasting [which we are working on] – but more importantly, as I mentioned above, comment on every political story on social media you can get your hands on. It has never been more important at this time to influence everyone you possibly can. We will not go away quietly.

Because a changed mind is a terrible thing to waste.

The Days of Noah

And there it is. We have entered into a new realm of pseudo reality. Simply, our freedoms been purchased for 30 pieces of silver [Zech 11]. We have been cheated out of our Constitutional rights and freedoms, taxes, unborn lives lost, masked up for an undetermined amount of time. All of it. Literally.

Before the elections, the prophets spoke, evangelists reached out, God had a word.

Much has been debated about the prophecies regarding the election. We should explain how the prophetic works: Quite simply, when a prophecy is given, there is no expiration date. Old Testament prophets spoke of Christ hundreds of years before He was born, notably Isaiah 9:6, and others. That being said, prophets are not told when these things will happen, only that they will. So when the election happened, everyone rallied with “FALSE PROPHET”.

Timing is everything. And I have also considered the timing of prophecies, whether they can change because people can change in the interim [Rev 2:20-23]. God is providential, He can forget our sin, His prophets speak what He gives them. It is up to us to heed them.

Don’t shoot the messenger – this is Obama’s promised third term. Many of us saw this ten years ago. Obviously he termed out so what about these prophecies people were talking about back then? And, there it is. He couldn’t get Biden elected in 2016, but as I said, here we are.

People say this is an unprecedented time, but is it really? Is this a great big surprise to God and the prophets? Not at all: “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” [Numbers 23:19]

Churches have been shuttered for months keeping Christians away from fellowship and study. It all seems so…seamless. Just because we’ve been absent doesn’t mean we won’t be held accountable. Judgement is coming, the church is guilty. The enemy has played us during this ‘pandemic’. We have been put in a state of fear for a virus that has a 98% survival rate. We made it ‘god’. And now we will pay for an election that was fraught with out loud fraud, Obama’s third term.

This will cost us four years in the natural. But this isn’t over. The Church is strengthening. We will get stronger. The spirit realm is quite awake. The prophets are busy.

“But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be,” [Matthew 24:37].

Never Forget.

One source says 2,966 Americans died in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on American soil. Another says 3,497. One was too many.

New York Magazine says (in part):

  • Total number killed in attacks (official figure as of 9/5/02): 2,819
  • Number of firefighters and paramedics killed: 343
  • Number of NYPD officers: 23
  • Number of Port Authority police officers: 37
  • Number of WTC companies that lost people: 60
  • Number of employees who died in Tower One: 1,402
  • Number of employees who died in Tower Two: 614
  • Number of employees lost at Cantor Fitzgerald: 658
  • Number of U.S. troops killed in Operation Enduring Freedom: 22
  • Number of nations whose citizens were killed in attacks: 115
  • Ratio of men to women who died: 3:1
  • Age of the greatest number who died: between 35 and 39
  • Bodies found “intact”: 289
  • Body parts found: 19,858
  • Number of families who got no remains: 1,717 [as of 9/11/2010]

On Tuesday, September 11, 2001 nearly 3500 people died from terrorism. No one knew that September 10th would be the last day they would spend with their families and loved ones.

On the very same day and every day since 1973, over 3500 others lost their lives to domestic terrorism, a loss that is not memorialized or even considered. Their lives were LIVES, innocent lives, lost to a terror regime held high and provided by Democrats for decades.

“And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” [Rev 6:10]

HOW LONG?

Over SIXTY FIVE MILLION people have been murdered on American soil since 1973. That we will can NEVER FORGET.

A Political Conversation

A POLITICAL CONVERSATIONby Jeremiah Johnson Ministries

Is it unreasonable to ask Christians to simply vote for the candidate they feel best represents biblical values?

I openly confess that I have NEVER understood the wars surrounding politics. Here is my process:

Every election year, I blot out Democrat or Republican and I also blot out the candidates names. I then check whatever boxes best represent biblical values.

✅ Pro Life
✅ Pro Israel
✅ Pro Religious Liberty

And on and on…

Image may contain: 2 people

The candidate and party that has the most checked boxes is who I vote for. Period. White, black, hispanic, male, female, etc. If any Democrat or any other party had the most checked boxes, I would vote for them in a heartbeat. Period.

For example, in the 2016 Florida Primaries, I voted for Tedd Cruz over Donald Trump. Why? Because I believed he more rightly represented biblical values.

In November when the election became Donald Trump versus Hillary Clinton, I again, blotted out the political parties and names and simply checked the boxes. I then had no other option but to vote for Trump.

When Christians start bashing Joe Biden or Donald Trump for their demeanor, competency, decisions etc, I personally do not understand. Put the men and political parties aside and just check boxes based off biblical values. Why is this so hard?

I look at the 2020 election and don’t even begin to understand what the debate is among Christians as to who to vote for. Without tearing down either man, can we just look at the Bible to determine our vote? Can someone help me understand what I’m missing?

Should Christians Get Involved in Politics?

by Pastor Bob Cornell of Cornell Ministries

With the November 3rd presidential election quickly coming upon us, the question given in the title of this article has been stirring in my spirit. The majority of those who identify themselves as evangelical (gospel believing) Christians in the USA, no matter what race, believe in the voting process. But yet there is a large portion of Christianity that does not vote, even if they would verbally ascribe to it. The arguments against believers getting involved in politics are such as, “The Bible does not state clearly that we should involve ourselves in secular politics or voting,” or “The church is not called to vote, we are called to preach the gospel,” or “Christians are ONLY to pray for, honor, and obey governmental leaders and civil authorities, along with paying taxes”Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, people standing, sky, beard and outdoor (Rom. 13:1-7; 1 Tim. 2:1-4; 2 Pet. 3:13-17). It is true that there are no verses in the Bible that state specifically “Thou shall vote” or “Thou shall strive to become governmental leaders.” To some, it seems clear that Christians should not involve themselves in politics at all or just in the realm of voting and that’s it. To others, the whole Bible should be considered and not just those passages that specifically mention governmental leaders and the church. The following is just a few examples of what the Bible states about believers and politics.

First of all, it should be understood what is meant by the word “politics.” The English word “politics” comes from the Greek word for “city”, polis, and “citizen”, polites. Politics and being a citizen are closely connected. Politics is the art of managing or influencing government policies. Being a citizen is one who has the right to be a member of the social politic (management and influence) of a country. In other words, citizens are the ones who manage, influence, and use the rights of the politics of a country. Of course, in a cruel dictatorship or communism, the role of a citizen in politics is different.

In Acts 22:25-29 Paul used his Roman citizenship for the advancement of God’s will for his life, and ultimately for the Gospel’s sake. The Jewish Sanhedrin was demanding that the Roman authorities scourge Paul which would have most possibly ended Paul’s life. But Paul used his rights as a Roman citizen to stop it. Paul said to the centurion “Is it lawful for you to scourge a man who is a Roman, and uncondemned?” (vs. 25). All of Acts 25 is about Paul’s continual appeal before Roman authorities to Roman law. In vs. 11 he even said “I appeal to Caesar.” Paul knew that it was God’s will for him to go to Rome. He also realized the only way that was possible was for him to use politics as a citizen of Rome. He would eventually be martyred by Nero, the Roman Emperor, but before that happened he wrote the “prison epistles,” and saw many Roman soldiers and common people won to Christ in Rome. Rome did not have a voting system like we do in the USA, but his appeal to Caesar was essentially his “vote” to use his rights as a Roman citizen. His “vote” would eventually end his life, but it also influenced the world from that point in time to the present. In Phil. 3:20 Paul wrote that “our citizenship is in heaven…” As children of God, we have dual citizenship, in heaven and on earth.

What do we take away from this example God gave us through Paul? A book could be written, but here are three important points:

1. Use our rights as a citizen to spread the Gospel to as many people as we can.
•We have the freedom & rights in the USA to spread the Gospel, so use that freedom & rights for the glory of God.
2. Use all the freedoms given to us as citizens to influence society with the Gospel and biblical morality & righteousness.
•Paul’s life is a snapshot of this. When he preached the Gospel in Jewish synagogues, he did so because he showed up and would have been invited by the ruling rabbi of that synagogue. We need to use our rights to at least show up to give the Gospel, even at places where we know we’ll be rejected.
•The Gospel brought God’s righteousness and morality everywhere Paul preached it. It does the same today in our society.
3. Paul used the rights given to him, so as citizens of the USA, we have the right and responsibility to use our vote to vote in leaders that will allow the church to continue to spread the Gospel freely.

We have several examples in the Old Testament in which God placed His people in influential positions in secular governments. It was God’s will for Joseph to be second in command to Pharaoh in Egypt in order to provide for and protect his family (Gen. 41:37-57). God placed Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego in very influential positions in Babylon (Dan. 1-4). Nebuchadnezzar, the evil king of Babylon, had a life changing experience and he gave his life to God (Dan. 4). Daniel eventually was second in command to Darius in the Persian government in Daniel 6. He was a prophet and politician in a secular government. Esther became the queen of Persia in order to keep the Jewish people alive. God even used Cyrus, the heathen king of Persia, to provide for God’s people to rebuild the temple (Ezra 4:5). God used Cyrus so much that He even referred to Cyrus as His “anointed (one)” in Isaiah 45:1.

What do we take away from these examples?

1. At times, God will place a calling on a believer to be a political leader in some capacity.
•This does not mean that God has called the church to take over secular society through politics. This does mean that God can and will call His people to be in governmental positions, ultimately to uphold or be an example of biblical righteousness and morality in the country.
2. At times, God will even use unsaved governmental leaders for His purpose and glory.
