How Can the American Church be at Peace with a Country that is at War with God?

The early church was married to poverty, prisons and persecutions. Today, the church is married to prosperity, personality, and popularity.”  Leonard Ravenhill

It is about 5:40 in the am and I cannot sleep. What keeps running through me at this early hour? How can the American Church be at peace with a country that is at war with God? (Psalm 120:7)  It's a world where the wicked within, those that know what they do, want to try again, doing things there own godless ways (Proverbs 14:12).

I remember when I first got saved, I mean really saved (John 3:3), when The Lord was breaking me down to nothing to show me who I was only to reveal to me as to who He is (Psalm 51:17).  In the process, I began only to hunger for the things of God (Matthew 5:6) and wanted nothing but His will to be lived out in the life that I had yet to live (John 21:18).

When I actually began applying the Word, rather then the relying on the modern day “people pleasing” self-appointed hirelings in the pulpits, I began to emulate the Christ in obedience to His Word where I lost my life to self at the cross, and found my life in Christ, and Him alone (Matthew 16:25: 1 John 5:12).

When I began to obey from the heart (Romans 6:17), I was then called into question by those who claimed to be Christians.  Yet, I also noticed that there was no difference between them and the world (Amos 3:3) and that they were mere hypocrites, which the Bible also continuously exposes (Matthew 23:3).  How could the blind lead the way? (Matthew 15:14)

The more that I took heed to the Word of God, and meeting the Lord on His terms (Acts 5:32), the more I noticed the power of God bearing witness on my behalf in service to those to whom I was called to go (Matthew 20:28).

I also noticed that a new level of warfare came into my ministry the more that I did so (1 Thessalonians 1:6).

It is funny you know, that when I was in the rock n roll world living a sinful lifestyle, no one had a problem with me, nor did any have anything to say that is until I started Obeying the Lord, not only in word, but also in action (Ephesians 6:12; 1 John 3:18).

Now when I first got into the Church, I was invited to a youth group meeting and I noticed that this youth pastor liked to talk much and do very little. The road of talk without action is not in my spiritual DNA and it was not a road that I was willing to get on. Talk, talk, talk, exaggerative and embellished talk which never went any further.  He was simply playing it safe in the church building (Matthew 23:3).

He talked about how he was going to do high school assemblies week after week, month after month until I could no longer listen to him.

Once I started to speak at high school assemblies, which are in the hundreds of them to date, I never could believe the trouble that I was going to be used to stir up (1 Kings 18:17).

I am, and have been, literally accused of everything that I am not guilty of, except that of which I am guilty (Matthew 26:62).  I was doing the right things, not the wrong things. Just ask The CIA-controlled media (MSNBC, CNN, New York Times, Huffington Post etc…) how they attack Christians when uncovering them for who and what they are (John 15:22).

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:10-12

I even had over 2000 outlets attack me 10 minutes after I gave a prayer at the capital in the state of Minnesota.

Friends, I cannot even get our tour bus stuck on the street without it being on the front page of the local paper. All of this is for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Matthew 3:2).

Yet, today, when professors see that trouble comes with preaching The Word faithfully, that is to set men free from sins (Proverbs 14:25), this is as foreign to them as Paul’s trials and tribulations.

 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.

Of the Jews, five times received I forty stripes save one. Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches. Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not? If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities. -2 Corinthians 11: 23-30

The founder of the Salvation Army, William Booth, was right when he said:

If you want to change the future, you are going to have to trouble the present.”

How foreign this is to the American, professed Christians today.  It was enough for the patriarchs, Apostles and Prophets to serve their generations, but somehow, in the present day, the professors have cast away all responsibility from themselves to their own demise because they feel that it is not theirs to fight the good fight of faith (1 Timothy 6:12).

Somehow, this has changed with them, but I am here to tell you that it is not the Lord that has changed (Hebrews 13:8).  Maybe they should take the time to read the pronouncements of the Lord when they make excuses as to why they do not respond (Matthew 25:14-30; Luke 4:18-27).

How can the American Church be at peace with a country that is at war with God?

The false prophets, effeminate ones at that, lead the congregants astray, and continually say "peace, peace" when there is no peace.  These have taught the sheep (John 10:11) to follow other gods (Deuteronomy 13).

These false prophets have even taught from the pulpits to trust in the arm of the flesh (government), rather than to trust in the Lord (Isaiah 30; Jeremiah 17:5).

Biblical Illiterates Reverse Romans 13: Teach Submit to Tyranny!

These are making war against God and His genuine Church, friends (Micah 3:5).

These false prophets have taught a false grace and the message, “God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life,” which contradicts the message that Jesus commanded to preach: “Repent for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand" (Matthew 3:3).

No wonder why so many are confused and believe that God will overlook their graceless life choices and let them into Heaven (Exodus 34:7; Deuteronomy 30;19; Matthew 7:13).

How can the American Church be at peace with a country that is at war with God?

Today, pastors and priests in America are advocating what God condemns.  Not only are they doing it in word, but also in their lawless actions! Their reprobate faith is at work (Titus 1:16; Jude 3-4).  Instead of them protesting sodomy, they are actively engaged in advocating it.  In fact, they are doing so as to fly their “Pride” flags outside of their churches in complete contrast and mockery of the Scriptures (Jude 1:7).

Welcoming in Muslims into their churches and into their communities not knowing that they are at length entertaining their own executioners.

Speaking of executioners, these are the same churches (300,000) in America that fail to stand up in protest, which makes them cowards, against those who murder the innocent in the womb, which without a doubt, will be those who go down in history as nothing less than accomplices in the sight of God and man for the crimes committed against the innocent (Proverbs 6:17).

How Can the American Church be at Peace with a Country that is at War with God?

Because they are enemies of the cross of Christ (Philippians 3:18).  They know not the power of God unto salvation (Romans 1:16)

Furthermore, they fear the face of men (Proverbs 29:25) and not the Lord!

The Bible says that the “Righteous are bold as a lion” (Proverb 28:1) and that,

The fear of The Lord is strong confidence.” -Proverb 1:26

How Can the American Church be at Peace with a Country that is at War with God?

Because the PEOPLE would have it so.

The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?” Jeremiah 5:31

Notice that this Scripture addresses the false prophets and the priests.  Also notice that it was the people that would have it so. Who put up the false prophets and priests? The people did.

Professing Christians (1 John 2:4) in this country act as if it is the responsibility of the “overseer” to work out their salvation for them.  It is not, the people must respond (John 7:17; Philippians 2:12).

There is enough dust on some of your Bibles to write damnation with your fingers.”-Charles Haddon Spurgeon

I ask, how can Christians be at Peace with a Country that is at War with God?

They CANNOT and Will not be at peace with a country that is at war with God! (John 14:21; 16:33)
