If you are looking for me to give you an easy answer, forget it. But, if you want a rock to build on—if you want a truth that will stiffen your resolve and give you a backbone—if you want to hear some reasons for fighting, then read on.

Here are the two things you must do first:

-You must never let go of your faith in an American miracle. No matter how this looks. No matter how impossible it may seem. You must never let go of your faith in that miracle.

-You must face the facts of your current situation, no matter how brutal they seem.

Here’s why those two things are so urgent. This election is a test. It is a bitter test. It is a trial that goes to the very core of your soul. To pass this test, you must never give up. God and Satan have dramatically opposite purposes for this test.

God wants to use it to forever settle it in your life that it was God, and only God, Who got us out of this mess. God wants to use it to place you in the middle of the victory, and the celebration of that victory.

On the other hand, Satan wants to use it to permanently destroy your faith in miracles. He wants to humiliate your intercession, as well as your stand against abortion and immorality.

But, the most important thing the devil wants to do is to make sure you miss the victory celebration. Only those who stand against the storm—the vicious lies—and remain at their post, even after we have passed all the human deadlines, will feel the joy of our final victory. Proverbs 14:10 says, “The heart knows its own bitterness, and a stranger does not share its joy.” Only those who suffer now, can celebrate then.

Now read this…

Once during a lady’s luncheon at a large church, some women were gossiping about the pastor. They had no idea that his wife was seated at the table behind them. One of the women claimed that the pastor had said something he should not have said. The wife spun around and said, “He never said that.” The lady who made the accusation retorted, “How do you know he didn’t say it? You weren’t even there.” The response of the pastor’s wife is the soul of this blog. She said, “I know him. He is incapable of making a statement like that.”

In this horrendous time—in this crime that stole an election—in this fearsome discovery of what Communist China is trying to do to us, I have a great hope. But my hope is not in prophets, prophecies, or even in Trump. My greatest hope is in the character of God. I know Him, and I know what He does in situations like this.

I know God. I know His character.  Those who know God and trust His character, are the ones that Daniel said would thrive in the evil of the last days. “…but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits” (Daniel 11:32). Those who will soon exploit this present darkness, know God Himself. They know Him even better than they know His prophecies. They know He always keeps His promises. They know He never fails!

For the last several weeks, many have been quoting this portion of 2 Chronicles 20:20, “Believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.” This is found in the story of the great miracle victory that God gave to Judah and King Jehoshaphat.

I can’t tell you the number of times I have read 2 Chronicles 20. That is why it shocked me that I had never seen this before. Then I saw that the king’s hope for victory was in something deeper than the prophecy.

Read this portion of the chapter. See if you see it in Jehoshaphat’s prayer:

“10 And now, here are the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir—whom You would not let Israel invade when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them and did not destroy them— 11 here they are, rewarding us by coming to throw us out of Your possession which You have given us to inherit. 12 O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.”

Just as the pastor’s wife knew what her husband was capable of, so the king knew what God would do in a situation where Judah was helpless before a wicked enemy bent on destroying an innocent people.  Jehoshaphat prayed, ‘Will you not judge them? Because we are helpless and they are utterly wrong.’

Do you understand that the prophecy Judah received was merely instructions about how to see victory? The king already assumed victory was coming—because of the character of God.

Joe Biden is a puppet, bought and paid for by Communist China. We have a flurry of despicable villains. From Democrats, to social media, to Hollywood, to name just a few. Now let’s look at what they have done. They have deceived. They have censored. They have committed great crimes.

Like Jehoshaphat, we have arrived at the same conclusion—a conclusion infinitely greater than any prophecy. Here’s the situation: We are being stripped of our freedom. We are hated because we have opposed the unspeakable horror of abortion. We are being forced to shut down, be vaccinated, and toe the line of socialism.

Say it with Jehoshaphat: “Will you not judge them? We have no might against this great host…but our eyes are on You.” Do not give up. Man does not decide the deadline, only God does.

David wrote, “O love the Lord, all you His saints! The Lord preserves the faithful, and plentifully pays back those who deal arrogantly. Be strong and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for, trust in, and expect the Lord! (Psalm 31:23-24 AMP)

    Such a encouraging word. On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.
    I hear the shouts of victory.

    • C. Jones

      Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His Glory and Grace! God has His way in the whirlwind and the storm. I’m leaning on what God can’t do…He cannot lie! His faithfulness is GREAT!

      • C. Jones

        When darkness veils His lovely face, I rest on His unchanging grace; In EVERY high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the veil! His oath, His covenant, His blood support me in the whelming flood; When ALL AROUND my soul gives way, He THEN is ALL my hope and stay!

    ?Philippians 1:19-26??
    To Live Is Christ
    19 For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, 20 according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. 21 For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. 22 But if I live on in the flesh, this will mean fruit from my labor; yet what I shall choose I [d]cannot tell. 23 [e]For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. 24 Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you. 25 And being confident of this, I know that I shall remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy of faith, 26 that your rejoicing for me may be more abundant in Jesus Christ by my coming to you again.

  10. Dennis Conner

    The prophecy that says, believe his prophets and prosper, does say that. Paul also taught in New Testament preach the word, other scriptures also teach, prove all things. The same Bible says God was upset with prophets speaking out of their own imaginations. Jesus even corrected his disciples telling them, they did not know what spirit they were being motivated by. If Paul could withstand Peter to his face, in New Testament times. Let him know he was wrong, does that mean Paul was bitter? Absolutely not. Likewise May their be maturity and humility to receive correction to whoever may be wrong. Because someone is wrong and someone is right, time will tell.

    • Hilda Winzeler (@hwinzeler)

      people who don’t STUDY scripture can’t know prophets and prophecies or the 5 fold ministry. Faith has to be renewed with daily scripture reading and listening to true ministers who teach the Word of Faith

      • Hilda Winzeler (@hwinzeler)

        Mark 9:23
        23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

      • C. Jones

        To know the GOD of the prophets is more important than knowing the prophets of God. John the Baptist said, The Messiah MUST increase, and I MUST decrease! The eclipse of Christ! Keep your eyes on the Lord at all times. See John 3:30

    • Sam

      Good points, Dennis. The verse about believing in the prophets and prospering is from the Old Testament, though. The nature of prophecy has fundamentally changed since then—New Testament prophecy no longer carries “Scripture quality” revelation, as this article explains:–scripture-quality–revelatory-words–a-response-to-the-most-frequently-cited-cessationist-argument-against-the-contemporary-validity-of-spiritual-gifts-
      So, as you also mentioned, we are commanded to test all things. To my knowledge, nowhere in the New Testament are prophets ever given a free pass. Everything they say is to be tested—and if we feel that their message doesn’t pass muster, then we are perfectly free to reject it.
      In other words, all prophets are to be held accountable. In fact, I believe that even the apostle Paul was always accountable to a local church. On the other hand, who are all these “YouTube” prophets accountable to? If you have a prophet who isn’t accountable for his or her prophecies, that’s a huge red flag right there.

      • C. jones

        Paul said this to the Corinthian Church: “ I speak as unto wise men, judge ye what I say”. He appealed to their maturity rather than his authority. He gladly made himself accountable. He had nothing to hide. See 1 Cor. 10:15

      • C. Jones

        I agree. Jesus said the scripture is the final authority.

      • Sam

        Thanks for the helpful verse, C. Jones. Yes, it definitely illustrates Paul’s humility and accountability, doesn’t it? A fine model for us all to follow. ?

    Mario, I follow what you are saying but what if the judgement of God falling on this nation because of abortion, Drugs and many other obvious sins? I’m not sure what is happening. It’s not logical in an obvious way but can you see that God could give a nation over to the sins it wants? Dave Please pray for 2 people in my family.

    Biden is not just a puppet to the Chinese he is a puppet to Pelosi, Hillary and Obama. They are calling the shots. Pelosi was responsible for the 1/6th chaos. The Lord showed me in a dream. It all has to come out in the open. Reveal the truth Lord don’t let them wash this under the bridge.

    America’s first President agrees with Mario. Listen to his words. “While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion.

      …a judgement is decreed upon the people in the USA because the people allowed the ruling elite to commit atrocities against others without holding them accountable for their corruption of truth. Therefore, the people are judged as accomplices in the criminal act of deception for personal gain while imposing servitude and poverty on the poorest of the poor. What President Trump discovered was greater than the fraud, in the three branches of government, it is linked to the Vatican that governs a greater amount of people worldwide and will not relinquish their authority to a lesser non-religious form of controlling the masses. Until the truth comes out, people are living a lie. Beware of the inquisition and dark ages being revived. Only the Lord can stop the madness unleashed by the antichrist that has replaced a follower of Christ and was mercilessly attacked for his love of truth…

    I don’t see it happening. For now, I am going to do what God’s Word tells me to, and that is to share it with those who are hungering and thirsting after it. That’s my responsibility.

    • C. Jones

      Penwright, I see that brown wooden gavel of justice coming down and reverberating throughout our government! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right? To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice. See Proverbs 21:3

    Even as I believe there are more battles to come in this pivotal time that will continue to shake and yes, even shock our souls, let’s not allow our hearts to fail by what we see and hear. Because when the Lion roars in the exact moment He already knows He will, it will be INCREDIBLE.
    I will never forget when the Holy Spirit started opening my eyes to His power and Presence. I’d been saved about 15 years. Each taste and each Encounter left me in a state of, HOW COME I NEVER HEARD ABOUT THIS??!! I later turned to a friend and gasped, “What have we been doing all this time?!?” meaning the time spent on “nice”, powerless, unanointed Christianity.
    I believe we’re headed into a Holy Crashing In of God that will ignite every house on fire. CRASH IN, OH GOD!!!!!! CRASH IN!!!!!
    So many of us will gasp, “Is THIS what it’s really supposed to have been all along?! What have we been doing, wasting time with that which is NOTHING compared to this???!!!” We’ll be like Job, in Ch 42:5 “I had only heard about You before, but now I have seen You with my own eyes.”
    Bro. Mario, you talking about the GROANS in your tent in Bakersfield….I keep thinking of that.
    Please keep sharing because your words are like matchsticks to dry wood and like swords to the flesh and the lies. You are His instrument to speak words that give us not a false hope, but point us to our Hope, Jesus.

    I follow your posts every day and have not lost my faith and love for God and never will. God has been there for me during both times when I lost my two sons, one to an explosion and one to cancer. His Angels have protected me from injury in two (would have been fatal) accidents. He has given me the gift of knowing since I was a small child. God is my rock on solid ground.

    Jesus said “He who endures to the end will be saved.”
    What if we are in a moment where God is calling his church to repentance and He is using evil rulers to force us to our knees in worship and prayer? His Kingdom is not of this world. Our hope is in the death and resurrection of Jesus. What if God is allowing evil to prosper so that unregenerate men will repent? The greed and gluttony of Americans is well documented. It’s every man and woman for himself! Maybe they will start to see how hopeless and helpless they are. This is when Christians need to stand and speak the gospel to give them hope.
    We should take heart. Jesus has overcome the world. Death is dead! Regardless of who holds political power, God is the sovereign ruler of the universe. Let us fill his golden cups with prayers and praise. He is coming and will not delay.

    I believe that we are going to see the biggest move of God ,brought about solely by God.No flesh will receive glory.Rivers of glory overflowing their banks and flowing thru out this nation and the world. We are going to see what our heroes of faith fervently prayed for,wrote about and longed to see.The knowledge of his glory will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea.

    Thank you for the encouraging word. I understand the value of staying committed to trusting God for His good outcome of this current situation in our country.

  50. Stephen

    For God’s will to be accomplished going back to Adam and Eve, man has always had responsibility to obey God, and keep God’s Word; laws, commandments, statutes as clearly expressed in Deut 28 and in the Garden where God said:
    Gen 3:3 “… ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’”
    They disobeyed God and God cursed them. What does this mean? Man has the responsibility to either support God in the accomplishment of His Will, or conversely thwart God in accomplishing His Will.
    In other words, it is actually up to man whether God’s Will is accomplished on earth as it is in heaven. God can not do it by Himself, obviously.
    This is the point that Christians need to understand. God can plan, predestine, call, guide, educate, but at the end of the day, man must step up and do his part in order for God’s Will to be accomplished.
    If Adam and Eve had have obeyed God, then already the Kingdom of God would be on earth. As we read the Old Testament we continually read of the failure of God’s people to obey God, which does what? It prolongs the Providence of Salvation and the suffering of the people, all people.
    The purpose of having faith is so that we will match that faith with right action, not just sit around expecting God to do everything and fix our problems. It will never happen. If we don’t act in faith, then bloodshed is required as an atonement for our lack of faith and action.
    Had Adam obeyed God would there have been any need for burnt offerings? No of course not. God desires obedience not sacrifice.
    1 Sam 15:22 “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,
    as in obeying the voice of the Lord?
    Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,
    and to hearken than the fat of rams”.
    This is why there were dual prophecies concerning the coming of Jesus. As the Lord of Glory or the Lord of Suffering, because again, man determines the outcome of God’s Will.
    Similarly, whether to obey God or disobey God in the Garden. In other words God prophesied in the Garden, “If you obey my words you will have life, if you disobey my words you will die”. Adam and Eve chose to disobey God and they died spiritually.
    Similarly if the people had chosen to obey God’s son Jesus, they would have had life and God’s Blessing, but they chose to disobey Jesus and they too ‘died’.
    What happened? They crucified Jesus, fulfilling the Lord of Suffering prophecy, and so Israel was not blessed, she was cursed and got smashed. Once again they did not keep God’s Word, which Jesus was the embodiment of. He was the Word in Substance. The Commandment now realised in the flesh, not just words on stone or parchment. They just had to welcome and accept Jesus for God’s Will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
    Jn 6:28 “Then they said to him, “What must we do, to be doing the works of God?” 29 Jesus answered them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.”
    Believe in him, not kill him.
    Due to their faithlessness, the Jewish people suffered terribly from that day on as also Jesus prophesied:
    Lk 19:41 “And when he drew near and saw the city he wept over it, 42 saying, “Would that even today you knew the things that make for peace! But now they are hid from your eyes. 43 For the days shall come upon you, when your enemies will cast up a bank about you and surround you, and hem you in on every side, 44 and dash you to the ground, you and your children within you, and they will not leave one stone upon another in you; because you did not know the time of ‘your visitation’.”
    Lk 23:27 “And there followed him a great multitude of the people, and of women who bewailed and lamented him. 28 But Jesus turning to them said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. 29 For behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never gave suck!’ 30 Then they will begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us’; and to the hills, ‘Cover us.’ 31 For if they do this when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?”
    The Parable of the Wicked Tenants:
    Mt 21:40 “When therefore the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?” 41 They said to him, “He will put those wretches to a miserable death, and let out the vineyard to other tenants who will give him the fruits in their seasons.”
    Clearly the Jewish people did not obey God and keep His Word. How could they have when they murdered the long awaited Messiah? 2,000 years of preparation, blood, sweat and tears to do what? Kill the very person who came to save the world both physically and spiritually and establish God’s Kingdom in his lifetime.
    Lk 1:31 “And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.
    32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High;
    and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David,
    33 and he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever;
    and of his kingdom there will be no end.”
    Just as Adam should have been the first king of God’s Kingdom, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”.
    The problem is the earth, not Heaven, this is where the problem needs to be fixed. We didn’t need Jesus to go back to heaven for a problem that is on earth.
    Do you get rid of the plumber when he comes to fix your burst waterpipe and see it as a good thing, and then say, “Its ok, we will just wait for the ‘second coming’ of the plumber”, in the meantime your house floods and you die, as what happened to Israel.
    This is folly, and man’s inability to see from God’s viewpoint and what He is wanting to accomplish. That is why Jesus asks, “Will he find faith on earth when he returns”. What? The faith to be able to recognise him and accept the new truth he brings when it won’t be the Jesus Christ of Nazareth, but another person coming to complete the role of Christ, as God’s anointed person.
    Christians will be in the same boat as the Jews, because he won’t come as they expect, and be the person they expect. Let’s look at these bible verses for clarification:
    John 16:12-13 :“I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.
    Rev 19:12 “His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems; and he has a name inscribed which no one knows but himself”. – Everyone knows the name of Jesus.
    Rev 2:17 “To him who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a ‘new name’ written on the stone which no one knows except him who receives it.”
    Acts 1:11 “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.”
    Rev 12:5 “She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron sceptre.” And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne”.
    Lk 18:8 “I tell you, he will vindicate them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of man comes, will he find faith on earth?”
    Lk 17:24 “For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of man be in his day. 25 But first ‘he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation’. 26 As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of man. 27 They ate, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise as it was in the days of Lot—they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built, 29 but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom fire and sulphur rained from heaven and destroyed them all— 30 so will it be on the day when the Son of man is revealed”.
    Lk 17:20 “Being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was coming, he answered them, “The kingdom of God is ‘not coming with signs to be observed’; 21 nor will they say, ‘Lo, here it is!’ or ‘There!’ for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you.”
    Lk 17:22 “And he said to the disciples, “The days are coming when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and you will not see it”.
    Rev 1:7 “Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, every one who pierced (persecuted) him; and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen”.
    What are clouds? Evaporated water, therefore, those who have purified themselves from the fallen world where the harlot is seated by the waters (adulterated waters):
    Rev 17:15 And he said to me, “The waters that you saw, where the harlot is seated, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues”.
    And also in a ‘cloud of witnesses’:
    Heb 12:1 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off ‘everything that hinders and the sin’ that so easily entangles”.
    Jesus warned of this and gave many parables, as in the Wedding Feast, the Ten Virgins and their lamps.
    His words and teachings are also the very means for us to prepare ourselves for the Second Coming. If we don’t embody the Word as Jesus taught us, then we won’t be able to recognise Christ when he returns, because we will not have a common base of resemblance with him to ‘see’ him’, though you may ‘pierce’ him.
    The trained eye of a doctor or a forensic scientist can see what the lay person can’t see. If we haven’t trained and disciplined ourselves with Jesus’ words, then we too won’t be able to see ‘one of the days of the Son of man’.
    “The days are coming when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and you will not see it”.
    Do not think because you are Christian that you will automatically recognise the Lord of the Second Advent. It isn’t that easy, hence Jesus also saying:
    Mt 7:13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. 14 For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few”.
    Christians have to now step up and take responsibility for God’s House and their own temple, aligning it with God’s Will and God’s Word as expressed by Jesus.
    “I believe in Jesus!”, just doesn’t cut it.
    America is failing and falling because it lacks substance, substance that comes from embodying the Word, not just ‘believing’ in it, nebulously.
    You can’t eat processed and take out food all your life and wonder why you get sick and have serious health problems. You become the embodiment of what you have eaten. So to be healthy spiritually, we must become the embodiment of the Word.
    We can’t just cram in a spiritual life after a lifetime of bad habits and practice.
    Christians must save America as God’s House, and provide leadership and governance across the ‘Seven Mountains’ as God expects us to:
    “Seek ‘first’ God’s Kingdom and His Righteousness”. “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”.
    That is our first and foremost responsibility.

    I have never even given it a thought to give up on a miracle from God for our country. Satan trying his hardest to destroy America and the people who voted for good (Trump). Those who voted for evil (Biden)
    the fake President will be sorry for what they have done. God Reigns!

    When I was younger I did not like you. That was 40 years ago. This post really spock volumes to me. I have been lost dazed and confused for a long time over this mess in this country. This has given me more to hang onto then many of the prophesies that I have heard. I have been reminded by God that He is a jealous God very jealous. This has been very encouraging. Yours In Christ Ken Ehret.

    My heart waits on the Lord. The one true God. There is no other like you O Lord of Hosts. Great and mighty is our God above all Gods. Great and mighty is he who rides on the clouds and laughs at the mighty of the earth. He is Lord and there is no other like him. Stand and see his salvation. Stand and see the salvation of our God. For he is Lord forever. There is no one like him. Amen and amen.
