TO SAVE AMERICA WE MUST STOP PLAYING CHURCH

by | Jul 6, 2021 | Revival in America | 8 comments

Something is desperately missing. American Christianity is constantly losing ground to the enemy. You have felt it in church. It is like the scene in so many sci-fi movies where humans face a new enemy and throw everything at them. A frustrated commander yells, “We are not doing enough damage!”

This blog is about the missing pieces of effectiveness—the missing parts that enhance our ability to drive back evil, and we will never acquire those missing parts unless we stop playing games.

It is shocking how fast the church has reverted to programs and entertainment. I see many Christian events that are just harmless therapy sessions and glorified concerts. I have seen hyper-mystical fantasy wars, where warriors in cardboard armor rebuke imaginary hordes of regional principalities. Some churches have just become compromised clubs.

To save our nation, we need to do the following:

First, we must find the right level of urgency. How can any Christian not feel urgency right now? The right course of action is only possible with the right level of urgency. Do we get what is truly at stake in America? Many institutions are on the brink of destruction.

Our government has unleashed policies on us that are raw tyranny.

The voting act would enshrine the fraud of the last presidential election and guarantee that elections will no longer be free or fair.

The Democrat Party is leading the charge to teach our children to hate America through the racist teachings of Critical Race Theory.

The Equality Act puts males in the girl’s bathroom in grammar schools and in churches. It will also make it a hate crime to preach Biblical Christianity.

Vaccinations are being handled like an early version of the Mark of the Beast. Vaccination passports will be needed to buy, sell, travel, and make a living, just like in Revelation 13.  Biden has spoken, “The rule is simple. Get vaccinated or wear a mask before you do.”

Second, we must not deceive ourselves into thinking that action against political evil is unchristian. We did not start this fight. We did not become political. They became ‘spiritual’ by creating their own false religion and, thus, they jumped into our yard.

Not only that, but we must all become warriors. No one is exempt from the war. No one is too old, too young, too poor, uneducated or untalented. Everyone has a place in God’s plan to retake America.

Christian civil disobedience: Romans 13:1-4 is often quoted to justify obeying evil leaders. It says, “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.”

Here is what legitimate government looks like:

-They are not a terror to good works. Any government that terrorizes the innocent is not of God. How can you say that Hitler was God’s will for Germany? Hitler and other tyrants are in fact the ones being warned that God has appointed legitimate governments who would destroy them: “But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.”  That is why the just powers of the world rose up and destroyed the Nazis.

-They praise good works. Authorities that are endorsed by God do not hate or oppose Christian activity. They are the ones who—even if they are not Christian themselves—do not insult soulwinning or fight the work of God. They are law enforcement, teachers, and politicians who love when children get out of gangs and off of drugs.

Third, staying out of the fight puts you in the greater danger. Esther 4:13-14, And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

Believing you can be safe by refusing to take a stand is like believing the bull will not charge you because you are a vegetarian.

Esther replied in verse 16, “Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast, likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!”

In Rev. 12, it says that the devil has come down having great wrath, knowing he (only) has a short season. We must prepare for it, and rise up as the Army of God.

What does it meant to stop playing church? It means a baptism of brutal honesty, where the church abandons Sesame Street and hightails it back to Azusa Street.

    I read this and to me it is verification. It is what I have told many of my friends if they feel they are just to turn the other cheek. I have always thought a lie is a lie and God does not love liars. Many if not most of these leaders are liars. Satan comes to lie ,to steal and confuse and takes well intended people who are Christian and confuses them. If we hadn’t been lied to these leaders would not have been in office to begin with. We are going to have to stand in unison. I don’t go to church to be entertained, but to learn how to navigate this world and be pleasing to Christ. I go so I am armed with the Armor of God and to hear the word of God. I am always greatful for the great music becsuse it can inspire different groups of people snd open hearts that might not have been opened to the message without it.

    The time is now to pick up our sword (The Bible) and begin to fight with the Word! But so many don’t realize how to fight this enemy, so we go on hoping that something will change. People who still love their sin and not willing to take our concerns to the government, protesting our leaders and praying about governments actions, fasting hearing from God! And we need to call out our brothers and sisters who believe that abortion, LGBT is not a sin, but a right. Rise up Church rise up! If we fail to fight and pray, and continue with our lives hoping to my personal life will be OK, then we have missed it! Cause right now this tyrannical in DC is just beginning, and will only get worse till we are all consumed with hate, for each other, and for our God Jesus! Wake up people ????

    This letter to the saints should be read at the beginning of every church service in America.

    This is absolutely what I am sensing in my area. People are only partly awake, and a sense of urgency is sorely needed. That is something I will have to help communicate, because I can’t hide under a rock because they do.

      I agree about fasting, let’s show God we are serious and call the believers to fast and pray and cry out to God for this nation

    You have told it right on. The church has played church too long. As you said we need to step and show is the real God. Too many Christians are scared of what they might lose instead of trusting God.

    Someone recently noted that our ruling authority is our Constitution and that all of our elected officials are governed by the Constitution. It’s a mistake to convey ruling power and moral authority to the president and administration. Reading that helped me to understand Romans 13:1-4.
