While listening to the Rush Limbaugh show on Tuesday the 11th of April, Rush talked about a news article from PJ Media about Millennials. The article was titled “Millennial Men Prefer to Be Family Breadwinners, Have Stay-at-Home Wives”.
When I heard it, I immediately thought that that’s not something the Left, particularly feminists, would be happy to read. But it makes sense. Personally, I want to be the breadwinner for my family and for my wife to take care of the house and children. That’s not to say I wouldn’t help, but that’s the roles I want for my family.
And, according to this article, most millennial men want the same.
Rush also stated a survey run on the dating website “Plenty of Fish”. According to the survey results, “22% of women refused to date a man that earned less money than they do.” And that by comparison, “4% of men and 11% of single individuals overall claimed that they refuse to be the breadwinner in a relationship.” The wording might trip you up a bit, it certainly confused Rush for a moment, but this is certainly good news. This means that 96% of men in that survey said they wanted to be the breadwinner.
When I heard all of this, it made complete sense. But more than that, it made me think about the trend in the world. The Left is trying to fundamentally change the U.S. They want civilization and people to be so incredibly confused and frustrated that they need government intervention to help sort things out, and that means Democrats getting elected. But what these things tell me is that the Left is not succeeding anywhere near as much as they would want us to believe.
They have the mainstream media and Hollywood to shout the things they believe and shove them down people’s throats, but that’s just it: they’re loud, not plentiful. Most people don’t want what they’re selling.
That article told me that millennial men want to embrace the role that God Himself ordered on man. And that they want a woman who will embrace the role God Himself ordered on woman. Telling this to a liberal feminist will undoubtedly infuriate them to the core. And that just makes me smile. This tells me that the Left isn’t succeeding as much as they want me to believe or even as they may believe themselves.
Furthermore, the evidence that they aren’t as successful as they claim to be is in the 2016 electoral map by county. When you look at that, you see a massive sea of red, even in California, Oregon and Washington. That’s something I’ve told you about in previous articles, but it is reinforced by the aforementioned article and survey.
MOST PEOPLE WANT A NORMAL LIFE.
MOST MEN WANT TO BE MEN.
MOST WOMEN WANT TO BE WOMEN.
Most people want to embrace the role God gave them. And that makes God smile. God didn’t create man so that he can lazy around doing whatever he wanted whenever he wanted with and to whomever he wanted. He didn’t create woman to do the same things man did. He created man to protect and care for woman and He created woman to accompany man by his side.
Leftists might say that that’s damaging to women, calling people that want that ‘sexist’. But here’s the thing: God created Eve from Adam’s rib. He didn’t take a part of Adam’s foot so that he may be above her, or from his head so that she may be above him. He took part of Adam’s rib so that woman may be equal to man, formed of his side to be by his side.
Men are to love their wives as Christ loved the church and women are to love and submit to their husbands as the church loves and submits to Christ.
When the husband is a man of God, righteousness fills his heart and refuses the desire to do evil, such as harm his wife. That’s just common sense. As Christ is the head of the church, so is husband the head of the family, which is why Ephesians 5:22-24 says to women that they should submit. “Wives, submit to your husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit everything to their husbands.”
This verse talks about a husband who is a man of God. God obviously doesn’t want women to submit to an abusive, sinful, evil man. But if a man is right with God and follows Christ, his heart won’t allow him to sin and feel good about it. He has the right heart and so the wife should follow him who follows Christ.
“Wives, submit to your husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit everything to their husbands.
Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her, that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word, so that He might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of His body. ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’”

This past week has been all about Assad’s chemical attack against his own citizens and Trump’s retaliation against Assad with an airstrike on one of his bases. So it’s understandable that people aren’t really talking about the supposed Russian hack of the 2016 presidential election. But here’s the kicker: the Left has less ammo on the subject than they did before.
What I mean by that is that, since Syria is an ally of Russia, Trump’s attack on Syria might’ve ticked off the Russian Bear. And if Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election from Hillary, as the mainstream media will want you to believe, then why would he do something that could potentially annoy his most trusted friend? I have no doubt that the left will come up with something along the lines of: “Trump is so stupid that he betrayed his very best friend, Putin, the one who won the election for him.” The left never shuts up and will always come up with something to say, regardless of how insanely stupid it may be.
But until they figure out what their new narrative on the subject will be, they will remain silent on the issue. And since they won’t ever be able to come up with actual evidence of hacking, they will be at a complete loss for a while.
We all know that the Russia hack story is simply fake news fabricated by the left. As such, there will never be any evidence of Trump colluding with Russia to win the election. That, in and of itself renders the left’s argument moot. The attack on Syria further proves that Trump didn’t make any sort of deal with Russia. Because here’s the thing: it’s the left that’s always making deals with foreign nations.
Hillary was accepting large donations from Middle Eastern countries during the campaign, undoubtedly so that she would allow them to do whatever their evil little hearts desired without American intervention. Obama and John Kerry made a deal with Iran to essentially allow one of the largest aides of terror in the world armament of nuclear weapons in exchange for 4 Americans held captive. Obama had told Dmitri Medvedev that “after the election, I’ll have more flexibility." (Discussing missile defense issues.)
The left is always the one that makes deals with foreign nations in order to benefit themselves greatly, and with the case of Obama, to weaken the United States as much as he possibly could. Trump said he would be willing to make deals with the Democrats. He has made deals nearly all of his life. He’s a dealmaker. But he doesn’t make one-sided deals that completely leave him to ruin while the other party gets every possible benefit. Beyond all of that, he doesn’t make deals that are very plainly illegal, such as the left is trying to portray.
Like I’ve said in the past, God chose Trump to become president so that we don’t have to go through the exact same thing we’ve had to endure with Obama over the last 8 years. He has chosen someone that won’t flat out destroy one of the countries that wholeheartedly trusts in God, as is said in the dollar bill. Someone that won’t abandon God’s chosen people, the nation of Israel, by making deals with its enemies. God had had enough of the American left doing what every other super power in the history of the world has done to the people of Israel. The left was ordained to lose in 2016, and that’s something to be eternally grateful for.
And so we’ll see where the left takes that story in the coming weeks, when they predictably return to it with the same message like a broken record. I’m interested to see what kind of b.s. they manage to concoct and spew out.
In the meantime, we can enjoy the few moments of peace we have from the constant annoying sound of a liberal media saying the exact same thing like a parrot. These moments are few and far between, so we must enjoy them to the max.

Last week’s confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court is undoubtedly a win for the pro-life movement. It’s also a moment of despair and agony for pro-choice advocates. But it doesn’t have to be.
You see, the idea that pro-choice advocates don’t believe that a fetus is a human being is ridiculous. They know perfectly well that a baby is a human being and he or she deserves protection from the government and from the rest of us. So if you’re a pro-choice supporter, please save your arguments of ‘women’s choice’ or ‘women’s health’. Nobody in their right mind would take such argument seriously.
But what if I told you that pro-choice supporters don’t have to pretend anymore? That they don’t have to pretend to defend ‘women’s health’ by applauding the mass murder of millions and millions of unborn human beings?
It’s very obvious that the reason young women would even consider abortion is fear.
And it’s also very obvious that the reason men would want women to abort their babies is so that they can have sex with women without committing to them – it’s about FUN for him.
So all young women need to do is WISE UP and stop allowing men to use them as sex toys.
And all men need to do is GROW UP and stop being selfish and commit to taking good care of their girlfriends and wives.
But my message is more profound than this. These two suggestions above, while practical, are nowhere near where I need to go with this article.
Let me explain.
All of us need to understand this principle:
God LOVES us. All of us.
When women begin loving themselves as much as God loves them, they will NEVER consider being used by selfish men again.
And when men begin loving women as much as they love themselves, they will never consider using women for pleasure again.
And neither one will ever HAVE to consider ABORTION.
If you understand the simplicity of my three statements above, you will also understand that there’s a better way to live your life. Whatever your situation is today, please know that you can come to Christ.
You may not be aware of this but 500 years ago the Protestant Reformation was born. This was a VERY CRITICAL point in time for EVERY HUMAN BEING on earth. Please keep reading because it’s important.
Martin Luther realized that scripture is CRYSTAL CLEAR that in order to be saved we just need to believe in Jesus Christ. We’re saved by FAITH ALONE, which is another way of saying we’re saved…
…BY CHRIST ALONE.
We know most pro-abortion supporters are atheists. And we also know that atheists are not certain that there is no God. They’re just angry at God because most of us have an allergic reaction to the idea of absolute power – the idea of a sovereign King. But what we need to understand is that this particular sovereign King is a JUST King, who gave his only begotten son so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. That, my dear friend, is how much God loves us.
If you believe in Jesus you will have eternal life.
And if you believe in Jesus you will love yourself as much as He loves you and you will love others as much as God loves them. And you will NOT want to kill another human being, or sin in any other way.
Now, being a Christian doesn’t mean Christians don’t sin. It means Christians don’t WANT to sin because we know sinning is displeasing to God. When we do sin, we repent and correct our behavior. The more we know God the more we want to be like Him …and the more joy we have in our lives.
Pro-choice advocates shouldn’t be upset about Gorsuch’s confirmation. They should be WORRIED about WHERE THEY’RE GOING TO SPEND ETERNITY.
God is giving us an opportunity to live in heaven. Why would anybody risk burning in hell for an eternity when heaven’s door is wide open to anyone who simply believes? Why rebel against God knowing that you’ll lose in the end? Why not make peace with God once and for all?
I’m praying that God opens the eyes of those who feel comfortable with the murder of the most vulnerable among us – unborn children.
Remember, all you have to do is accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. If you had to ‘work’ for your salvation, you wouldn’t make it. You can’t rely on yourself for your salvation – nothing that you do will save you. Not being a good person, not being a wealthy person, not feeding the poor. Nothing. Only your faith in Jesus Christ can save you because left alone, none of us are good enough in the eyes of God.
Then what becomes of our boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith. For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law. Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, since God is one—who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith.
One of the largest news pieces this past week has been the bombing of one of Assad’s military bases in Syria. As such, the mainstream media felt compelled to bring in a survivor of a similar attack Assad carried out in 2013.
Kassem Eid, the aforementioned survivor, was interviewed by Brook Baldwin on CNN. During the interview, Baldwin clearly tried to get Eid to bash Trump for his strike on Syria, but what he did next was unbelievable…
Mr. Kassem Eid went out of his way to THANK the president for his action against Assad. To quote the man: “… I cried out of joy… I thank God... We’ve been asking for protection… for more than 6 years… For the first time, we see Assad held accountable… I felt grateful for President Trump. I felt grateful for the United States.” To her credit, Baldwin managed to maintain a straight face through all this, but this is clearly not the way this interview should’ve gone.
There was no way Mr. Eid should’ve felt grateful to Trump in the LEAST, evidenced by her follow up question: ”… This is a man who doesn’t want Syrians to come into this country with this refugee ban.” And proceeds to play a clip of Crooked Hillary saying that “we can’t in one breath speak of protecting Syrian babies and in the next, close America’s doors to them.” Baldwin then asked, with a small smirk that’s noticeable for a second, how Mr. Eid sees that.
But then, that’s where things turned for the worst for CNN. Because he actually went out of his way to BASH Obama for his inaction against Assad and bashed the media for being HYPOCRITES.
The quote: “With all due respect… I didn’t see each and every person who was demonstrating after the travel ban, I didn’t see you (CNN) three days ago when people were gassed to death. I didn’t see you in 2013… I didn’t see you raising your voice against President Obama’s inaction in Syria… that made us refugees get kicked out of Syria. If you really care about refugees, if you really care about helping us, please help us stay in our country. We don’t want to come to the United States… we want to stay in our country. With all due respect this is hypocrisy, if you really care, help us stay in our country. We don’t want to become refugees… help us establish safe zones… help us stay in our country…” It was at this point that Baldwin had had enough and wanted to end the interview very quickly.
Mr. Eid asked for a couple more seconds to once again thank Trump, saying that what Trump did was “amazing” and that the attack was “a powerful message for hope”, he asked the president to “Please don’t stop… Please continue to take out more of Assad’s air forces.” Those are some amazing words coming from someone that the Left didn’t expect to say. In their minds, Mr. Eid was going to bash Trump for attacking the base, they themselves were doing it. But this man comes in and does the PRECISE OPPOSITE of what they were expecting. He starts praising Trump and thanking him. He starts saying how Obama’s inaction in Syria caused this turmoil and refugee crisis. How the left wasn’t there to ask them about the chemical attacks. Or how they weren’t raising their voice in concern over Obama’s inaction. And finally, saying how if they really cared (which they don’t), they would help the refugees to NOT be refugees in the first place and help them return and stay home.
In this man’s eye, Trump in one day did more for the people of Syria than Obama did in the last 6 years of his presidency.
Mr. Eid had every right to thank God for Mr. Trump and his action against Assad. I thank God for that as well. A few days ago, I wrote an article on what the big deal was about Trump bombing the base and why supposed Trump ‘supporters’ were disappointed with the president. Well, Mr. Eid made the attack a big deal, proving my title wrong in that sense, as it was a big deal for him, and made it known to the world that what Trump did was a good thing that they had been waiting for for 6 years, that they never got with Obama.
You see, God has ways of making things work out. For the Trump ‘supporters’ who believed doing that was a mistake, now you have a different perspective to look at the strike and see that it was good. God placed a man in the White House who wasn’t going to stand by and watch, and even LIE to people, as civilians are massacred in one of the most inhumane ways possible.

On April 6th, 2017, the U.S. bombed a Syrian target; a military airfield, in retaliation for Syria’s inhumane use of chemical weapons against its own civilians.
Knowing that Syria did that earlier in the week, I would think that the U.S. responded accordingly. So why in the world are people against it? Well, we know why the left is against it. But why are some of Trump supporters against it?
I know what you’re going to say. Trump had tweeted multiple times that it would be a bad idea to attack Syria. That it would make more sense to just focus on trying to fix “broken U.S.”. And NPR made sure that we all got to read all of those tweets. Here’s the thing, though: those tweets were sent in late 2013. It’s been over 3 years since then and the conflict in Syria seems no closer to a climax than it did back then.
I remember seeing a FB post on one of the pro-Trump pages I follow of a man saying “Shame on you Trump…” That he’s “done what every other USA president would’ve done.” I ask, is that a bad thing? In the general scheme of things, we don’t want Trump to be like other presidents. We don’t want him to break campaign promises and be soft on the opposition. But in other instances, we want him to be the very thing we elected him to be: a U.S. president. A commander-in-chief.
I understand that the priority is to Make America Great Again. But we must also understand that the rest of the world doesn’t just stop what it’s doing so that we can have time to recover. ISIS will continue to attack innocent people. Syria will continue to be at war with itself. They’re not gonna give us time to recover and catch our breath. They’ll continue to do these things, and we must act accordingly when attacks on innocent lives occur.
I’m sure you know that eventually, Trump will send troops back to the Middle East to take out ISIS posts and strongholds. We’ll be going back to war with them. This strike will undoubtedly not be the last. Particularly if Syria continues to use chemical weapons against its own citizens in an attempt to flush out rebels.
Trump tweeted in 2013 that: “… the ‘rebels’ are just as bad as the current regime.” He was right. The rebels are indeed just as bad as the current regime. No matter who wins the war, Syria as a whole will come out the loser. There’s no good side in this war. It’s evil vs. evil. But as they are evil, they will do evil things. The Syrian government using chemical weapons against its own citizens in the hopes of getting at least some rebels or even some rebel sympathizers counts as doing an evil deed. We recognize such evil and act against such evil by retaliating against the aggressors.
The left has always whined about the U.S. being the “world police”, saying that we shouldn’t be. Well, when the rest of the world is run by evil, there’s not much we can do. As man is evil by nature, so will be the governments he runs. And since the only non-evil and strong government in the world is the U.S., it’s up to us to put evil in its place. In general, we won’t get involved in other country’s affairs. I don’t think we’ll be siding with the Syrian government or the rebels at any point. But when one side or the other involves the civilians and causes casualties, particularly from such an inhumane measure as chemical weapons, then we’ll do something about it, such as bombing a Syrian military airfield.
Let’s look at Romans 13:4 “For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.” Let’s look particularly at the last two sentences. “If you do wrong, be afraid… an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.” Would you not say that it befits the president and his actions? The Syrian government did something wrong. And God’s wrath was carried out on them. They had that coming and had quite literally a hell of a lot more coming. So it makes no sense to be angry at what the president did, since it’s what any other president would’ve done and should’ve done.
“For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.”

For the longest time, the Democrat party was the one in control. They owned the White House and could get anything they wanted in Congress with little opposition from the Republicans. They own the media and let people know what they want people to know and work to eliminate any piece of news that contradicts or opposes their narrative. And with that, they’ve come to believe that most people agree with them and most people want them.
If people truly wanted them, they would’ve won every election since 2008 with landslide after landslide. Republicans would never have had a prayer to own Congress in 2010 and 2014 and would never have been successful in 2016. And still, with all the loss after loss the Democrats experience, they still believe that the majority of Americans want them, trust them and want to vote for them.
That’s what explains them whining so much about the 2016 election results. They can’t accept the fact that America voted to get Democrats out of the White House and to keep Republicans in power in Congress. They can’t accept that fact because it doesn’t make sense in their minds. If the majority of people love and want you, why would they go to someone else? They fail to understand that the people that tell Democrats like Hillary that they’re wanted are the only people that actually do. Outside of the media, most people still wanted Trump, or even Obama, over Hillary.
They can’t get over the fact that they were UTTERLY REJECTED and so created a flimsy excuse with absolutely no evidence to make themselves feel better. They didn’t believe they were rejected. Still don’t. They refuse to accept the fact that they can no longer bs their way to Washington. The American people have awoken to the smell of their bs and got tired of it. The media believed America and the world was living under utopia or near utopia thanks to their leader Barack Obama. They refused to see the destruction Obama was causing, or simply didn’t care (or were rooting for it, you choose) to the country and forgot that Americans can vote them out of office.
They thought they had the American public in the palm of their hands, to do with as they pleased. Like sheep leading them to the slaughterhouse that is the ballot boxes when voting Democrat. They didn’t think the American people were smart enough to realize they were being deceived. They found out the hard way that Americans aren’t as stupid as they think they are.
God has caused the majority of the American public to awaken to the destruction that was occurring around them. They saw that what Obama was doing wasn’t working. They found out that the mainstream media was lying to them about how good things were and how happy they were. God opened their eyes so that they may see what path they were going down on should they continue to vote for evil.
Clearly, God still has plans for America and doesn’t want His nation, the nation of Israel, to be alone in the world once again. Much like He has a plan for each of us individually, He has a plan for this entire country. What that plan is, we’ve yet to see.. But I know that it is God whom we must thank for veering us off the course of evil we were going on with Democrats. Now, we must pray and continue to pray that God will help this newly elected president to do right by Him. And that He won’t allow evil back in the White House any time soon.
He’s in control and He gets to decide who wins elections and who influences the world.

While listening to the Rush Limbaugh program, I heard a caller having doubts about Trump, saying that he’s a “puppet” and that he’s become a part of the “swamp”. Let me tell you, I both laughed and got annoyed by the caller’s comments.
Let’s look at this from a logical point of view. Today’s date is April 5th, 2017. Trump was inaugurated just over a month ago. How can anyone possibly expect him to be able to accomplish so much in such a short amount of time? Did any of you expect America to have been made great by now? That’s a pipe dream. It would be realistic if the Left wasn’t so adamant about making sure Trump failed.
Let’s not forget that Trump faces opposition that bends and breaks rules on a daily basis. Technically speaking, what the judge in Hawaii did in stopping the Muslim ban bill was not within his power. What he did was commit treason, but obviously not many people know this since the mainstream media doesn’t cover it as that. Speaking of the devil, they are part of the reason Trump doesn’t seem to be very successful. Back in the days of Obama, they would consider the president to be successful if he just lifted a pencil. They worshipped Obama, but he’s gone now. Now, they have to cover a man that they despise with all their beings, and as such, they will bitterly negate any success the president has and consider them failures.
Furthermore, back to the fact that Trump’s only been president for a little over a month, you have to consider the fact that he’s a true outsider. He has had to learn the way things work within the government, as he has had no previous experience in managing any form of government. As much as he wants to run the country as a business, he can only do so much and go so far with that concept. He’s having to learn to do new things in a vastly new way and he’s only been at it for just over a month.
The caller seemed to have been worried about the future of the presidency, but I’m not worried in the least. He’s doing something very few people know how to do: run an entire super power nation. He’s 70 years old. All his life he’s run businesses. He knows how to do that, but now he’s had to learn to run a country. I can’t imagine he ever had to deal with a lower level worker stopping him from venturing in business deals before. For the first time in his life, he’s experiencing the power of political opposition. And he’ll have to learn that in order to Make America Great Again, you have to look at what made America so sucky in the first place: the Democrat Party and its co-conspirators.
Rush often says that Trump isn’t an ideologue. And that might be true, but he’ll have to learn quickly that the Left isn’t a force that one can simply reason with.
I’m reminded of something that Trump tweeted once on making deals: That the best deals are the ones you walk away from and return to on better terms. The Left by design is not someone you can make a sensible deal with. They can’t stand the idea of losing anything, as evidenced by their constant whining about this latest election. You can’t deal with the Left logically, you have to defeat them at every turn.
He needs to recognize that the very people he wishes to make deals with are the very people that very nearly changed this nation into something unrecognizable from its foundation. The Left isn’t looking to make fair deals. They want to make deals that will benefit them entirely and leave little to nothing for Trump.
Trump is a brilliant man. He has been successful for much of his life. He’s come back from bankruptcy to become one of the wealthiest people on Earth. Not many people have had such success after declaring bankruptcy. I believe he’ll figure out what he needs to do to fulfill his main campaign promise. God gave him a good brain. And as long as Trump continues to pray and continues to look to God for answers, he will be a successful president.
God put Trump in the White House so that he may succeed there. And God will grant him such success as long as he continues to trust in Him and continues doing right by Him.

As it was mentioned in my previous article on California’s foundation on greed, there was a religious revival in the 70’s called the “Jesus Movement” that originated from said state.
In his book titled: “Is This The End?” Dr. David Jeremiah talks about the need for a Christian revival in the country. He lists the documented Christian revivals through this land’s history.
First, comes the first revival called The Great Awakening (1720s through 1740s). Just prior to this revival, the land was not too different from what it is today, with less and less people being converted and proclaiming their fellowship to Christ. This revival began with a simple gospel message of the need to be born again, which resonated with younger audiences and gave them hope. Johnathan Edwards, during this time, warned unconverted men and women of the danger that lies ahead of them should they fail to come to Christ. And John Wesley used his powerful voice, in the literal sense, to evangelize sinners for a mile without the use of amplification systems.
This revival is immensely important, as it's what led our founding fathers to fight for our freedoms.
The Second Great Awakening started sometime in the early 1800s. During this time, as people were preoccupied with the task of building a new nation, their spiritual well-beings began to deteriorate. During the time of the Great Awakening, 40 to 50 percent of the population attended church. By the 1790s, however, that number dropped down to 5 to 10 percent.
Christianity in America was under threat of extinction.
But in a college in Virginia, some students locked themselves in a room in fear of fellow classmates and began praying for revival. The college president investigated the situation and when the students were invited to his office, they prayed alongside the college president. In short time, half of the student body had come to the Lord.
The Third Great Awakening came during the 1850s and 1860s. After sometime, the passion and fire of the Second had died down. But thanks to one Jeremiah Lanphier, the Third Great Awakening began. He had announced a prayer meeting for September 23, 1857. In that first meeting, almost no one showed up. But as months went by, more and more people would show up. More than 50,000 people a day would show up to pray in New York, and this revival spread to other major cities around the area.
Then came a larger scale revival: The Global Revival (Dated sometime early 1900s) This one actually started in Wales, where a young man by the name of Evan Roberts began to preach a simple message: confess your sins to God, do your best to not continue sinning, obey the Holy Spirit promptly, and confess your faith in Christ openly. This simple message stirred incredible amounts of emotion from people in Wales, then England, then the rest of Europe, America and much of the known world.
Lastly was the aforementioned revival: The Jesus Movement (1970s). During this time, an entire generation of people became known as the “hippie” generation. This generation was known as the most screwed up generation in American history, with drug usage rising, and Indian transcendental meditation becoming the most popular form of spirituality there was. However in 1968, a Christian couple opened an evangelistic coffeehouse in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury (Hashbury, as nicknamed by the hippies) district. This one coffeehouse spawned a myriad of other Christian coffeehouses in the West Coast. And that led to ministries starting and people’s souls to be saved. This even caused thousands of hippies to become baptized.
We can see that there’s a pattern in our nation’s history, much like in our world’s history. The number of people who believe in Christ shifts over time. Sometimes that number goes up, and sometimes that number goes down. As I look at the state of the world today, I see that the trend is a massive down. What with the legalization of marijuana, gay marriage and unapologetic promotion of abortion, we see that the passion for the last revival is very clearly in the past.
But you have to ask yourself: are we due for another Christian revival? The answer to that can be a yes or a no. What do I mean by that? I mean that God is the one who decides who He saves. If He wants another religious revival to occur in the U.S. and the world, He will cause it to happen. He’s the Master of the Universe and gets to decide whom will enter His kingdom. That’s not to say that I don’t want another revival. I most certainly do. But if the Jesus Movement was ordained to be the last one, who are we to argue? Those of us who are saved will not suffer death… that is spiritual death. I’d be more than happy with another revival, but I have no right to complain if it doesn’t come. And those who are saved needn’t worry about the future, as it is all in the hands of the Lord.
This is why we are encouraged to evangelize people. We want to help bring as many people to Christ as we possibly can, regardless of the trend in faith in the country or the world.

When you think about the creation of this country, we often think about the first settlers and the Revolutionary War. But we often overlook the fact that people had to travel and expand in order to found what would now be the rest of the United States.
These people expanded south to push back against the Conquistadors of Spain and expanded West to beat out everyone else. The Louisiana territory belonged to France until 1803 when it was purchased by the established nation of the United States. As a result, America began to expand westward, while continuing to fight the Spaniards as well.
California was founded after being seceded to the U.S. from Mexico in 1848. And was made into a state in 1850 mostly because of the Gold Rush (1848-1855).
So as you can see, California’s very foundational origin is that of GREED.
California is perhaps the most liberal state in the entire country. I say perhaps because Hawaii is also incredibly liberal, but California often makes the most noise due to the fact that they have Hollywood. And since it’s arguably the most liberal state of all, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that its very origin is that of one of the seven deadly sins.
Now, California has had some good times in the eyes of the Lord. The latest documented religious revival in America actually originates from San Francisco, one of the most liberal cities in the country.
That’s where the “Jesus Movement” originated as a result to the hippie era that was flooding the country. (I just hope we’ll have something similar to respond to the millennial era.)
California was also Ronald Reagan’s state as governor, and thus helped him win both elections (1980 and 1984).
So it’s clear that California has done right in the eyes of God, but that is well in the past. Today’s California is very nearly the exact opposite of Yesterday’s California. San Francisco, the birthplace of the Jesus Movement, is largely known for being the city with the largest gay population in the country as of 2015, with 6.2% of the population of the San Francisco Metro area identifying as gay. Homosexuality and, generally speaking fornication, are sins. If you don't like this truth, don't tell me, take it to God...
And let’s not forget the damage Hollywood often does. What with having two Disney movies in the last two years having a gay character. (Finding Dory: had a lesbian couple. Beauty and the Beast: Gaston’s sidekick is gay - although there’s only one scene just before the credits roll that shows him dancing with another man).
That’s tame compared to what other filmmakers are doing, what with whole movies being promoted for including a gay black man plot. (Moonlight (2016)).
Let’s look at California as a whole. In 2012, 43.7% of registered voters were Democrats and 29.4% were Republicans. This means that nearly half of an entire state was Democrat in 2012. I’m also accounting for the fact that there are people that are not registered to vote either because of age or because they’re foreigners or because they just don’t want to register to vote.
Now, the thing is that, when looking at the 2016 electoral map, we see that California is flooded with red counties, but the most populated places (the coastal cities for the most part) are blue. These are the Los Angeles, San Francisco cities of the state. So even though it’s still largely red, since it’s run by Democrats and the largest places are run by Democrats in and out of office, this state wound up voting for Hillary.
2012 was no different. Most counties in California voted for Romney, but the state went to Obama. Same with 2004. Most of the state was painted red, but the state went to John Kerry. So due to the fact that most of the population lives in the blue areas of the state and that population is largely liberal, a seemingly red state often goes to the Democrat party.
With all of these Democrats, it’s no wonder the state is as insane as it is. It was founded on greed and has moved on to the other deadly sins, mainly lust and pride.
The state was founded on one of the icons of evil in the eyes of God, so it’s no surprise it is so far from God as it is.
And unless there’s a RADICAL change in its political system or there’s another religious revival, this state will continue to go further down into sin.

The Conference Board reported last week its consumer confidence index skyrocketed to 125.6 in March, up from 116.1 in February. Fake News economists were expecting a decline to 114.1.
Ever since the election last November, consumer and business confidence levels have continued to defy ‘experts’ by climbing higher and higher each month.
Well, that tells you a lot about these so called ‘experts’, and even more about people…
What can I say?
It’s FANTASTIC news!
Not just the fact that confidence levels are climbing – but the fact that I think for the first time in a long time we can safely say that…
…PEOPLE ARE IGNORING THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA!
Think about it – the MSM is bombarding us day in and day out with news of how ‘racist’ and ‘chauvinist’ and ‘illegitimate’ and ‘incompetent’ Trump is. How the GOP is in ‘complete disarray’. How Trump will have to decide if he wants to ‘resign, be impeached or get assassinated’, as NTY’s David Brooks so clearly put it after Trump’s victory.
And yet, people’s confidence in the Trump Administration and in their future is increasing. How refreshing!
The MSM is becoming less and less relevant. So much so that they cannot even influence the direction of a metric, such as the confidence index, in spite of the massive amount of effort they’re putting in destroying Trump!
This is great news, my friend. People are waking up. The MSM cannot control people’s minds and thoughts any more. It’s a great sign.
So what do we, the ones who have ‘converted’ to conservatism, need to do?
We need to continue PREACHING.
We have a strong enemy before us – the deep state. They own
They’re POWERFUL. They’re LOADED with money. And they’re DETERMINED to hold on to their PRIVILEGES at OUR expense.
The rest of us, middle and lower class mortals of every race and religion, need to UNITE and DEFEAT the deep state. We have a President who’s literally putting HIS LIFE ON THE LINE every single day so that WE can have a better life.
Trump’s life was marvelous before he ran for president. Ours was terrible – and we didn’t have any hope of keeping our freedoms, our religions or our money. The president is a man who selflessly gave up his life of semi-privacy JUST to make sure he did something GOOD for us, the ‘deplorables’. Let’s make sure we thank him for that. Let’s make sure we thank GOD for the opportunity. But let’s also make sure we continue preaching and teaching.
The only reason I went from liberal 15 years ago to conservative today is people like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity – they’re the preachers who convinced me the real enemy is big government… the deep state.
And as we preach conservatism, let’s not forget who is in control: GOD. Let’s not forget that the only reason we even have a free country is because God has ordained it.
God is sovereign – He chose Trump and He allowed Obama. Nothing happens without God ordaining it.
If you’re a Christian you know that God is sovereign. You know that nothing is a surprise to God. This is a difficult concept to digest because some people wonder if God is Sovereign, how can there be evil? Is God not as merciful as the Bible says or is He not as sovereign that He can’t stop evil?
Before I answer the questions above, let me say this: God is SOVEREIGN and GOD IS JUST.
As far as God being merciful, let me explain this principle: if God were to impart justice on all of us, we’d all go to hell, because we’ve all sinned. And don’t tell me you’ve never sinned – you may not have stolen anything or killed anyone, but if you’ve ever lied or even had sinful THOUGHTS, then, my dear friend, YOU’VE SINNED.
But thanks to His GRACE, He has decided to show us mercy by saving some of us - those of us who BELIEVE in Jesus Christ. God is just always.
OK, so if God is merciful and bad things still do happen to us, believers, is he not fully sovereign, then?
The answer is: God is sovereign too.
He ALLOWS for bad things to happen for a PURPOSE. We may not know what that purpose is, but we are really in no position to challenge Him simply because God is God. You don’t challenge God. He gave you life and He can take it away if so He wishes. He gave his only begotten son, Jesus, so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. God LOVES you – but you have to TRUST Him.
God allowed Obama, the Clintons, Pelosi and all the rest of the globalists to make our lives miserable… at least for a while. Why? I don’t know but I can tell you this: Obama and Pelosi brought me a lot closer to God than Trump did. In fact, Trump has had no impact on my relationship with God whatsoever. But thanks to Obama and Hillary I PRAYED MORE during election night 2016 than in any other election before.
Evil people or difficult situations tend to have that effect – in search for answers, you draw closer to God. So be grateful for those nasty people and situations in your life.
So preach, my friend. Preach about the goodness of conservatism. Preach about the opportunity – perhaps the last one – we have now with Trump in the White House. And preach about God – the Creator of the Universe! Pray that He gives us another chance to be more holy…
Whatever the LORD pleases, He does, in heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps.
