It’s no secret now, President Donald Trump is the fourth president to be charged with articles of impeachment. As he is supported by the Evangelical body of ministers and believers in the United States, it’s interesting to note the spiritual significance of the number 4.
On the fourth day of creation week, the Lord completed the material creation with the sun, moon, and stars ordained for signs, seasons, days, and years. Four is the number for the world. Spiritually speaking, we can consider this impeachment proceeding as an attack of the world against an American President elected with the support of God’s spiritual ministers of the day. We are witnessing a true spiritual battle unfolding before our eyes. But as long as we consider only the “evidence” and “testimony” of the hearings, we are only looking at the proceedings by the eyes of the flesh.
Our country is truly divided at this point in history and the majority party in Congress is motivated by the hard line rhetoric of their top leaders. Searching for truth is qualified by the “truth” they support, not the full truth. If President Trump were trying to get the President of Ukraine to open an investigation to uncover corruption on the part of the Biden’s, wouldn’t our government want to know the truth? If Congress were trying to hide corrupt actions sanctioned by our government, they are only deflecting the fault by hiding the truth behind the impeachment. If President Trump were trying to influence the 2020 election, wouldn’t this impeachment orchestrated by the Democrats be a greater influence? If you want to know the truth, only God can reveal it at this point in time. There is not enough evidence, and the Republicans have repeated this all along.
So what is the spiritual battle? The President elected by a majority of God fearing, God believing people is being maligned and harassed incessantly from the moment of his election. His entire term of office has been marked by continuous investigations and accusations against him originating from the Justice Dept., the Democratic Party in Congress, and Liberals. If we only look at the people, we can easily see that the status quo that is being protected is the status quo set by a Godless culture that developed over the last 80 years.
Liberals in every branch of government and culture that have rejected the Gospel of Jesus Christ have become the leaders of our society. They have until now, tolerated Conservative rhetoric. But lately, they have become antagonistic against Conservatives and vehemently hateful against Christians. President Trump’s victory against the Liberal’s golden girl was a shock to them and they vowed to disrupt his Presidency from the very start. He had no chance to form a working coalition with the Liberals in the Democratic Party. Unfortunately, he is not a Washington insider and won on a platform that made many enemies of Liberal Republicans as well. President Trump’s support base is entirely Evangelical, popular, and Conservative, he has very little support within the established structure of the government he was about to lead. Liberals in every branch of government and even within his own party despise him. He represents a social structure that they have worked successfully for 80 years to overthrow. They knew he will work to reverse all that they have accomplished because his platform and constituency wanted nothing less.
With over 90% of the shadow government in favor of Liberal policies, the majority of the Democratic Party in favor of Liberal policies, a Liberal mass media, and a politically divided country that is nearly 50/50 in favor of Liberal policies, this impeachment is an important test of Liberal solidarity. If President Trump wins in 2020, it will be nothing less than a miracle of God to the Conservative cause of national moral restoration.
But Conservatives like me need to realize one important thing. Political power is always temporary. Even if President Trump were to stay in office for the full 8 years of two terms, without a succeeding Conservative President, everything he accomplishes can be reversed by a Liberal majority later. If we really want to change the moral climate of our nation, we need to demonstrate the reality of God’s delivering power in our lives. Not just in His impact in our personal life, but in our ability to demonstrate His power at work through us, in other people’s lives. We need to build our faith by trusting Him at His Word when He tells us how to love our Liberal friends and families. Christianity is not a closed club for Christians alone, but a family that grows when we are bold enough to demonstrate God’s miraculous power in someone else’s life, someone who is not Christian. We need to rise up and really demonstrate Jesus’ love and power through our genuine concern and love for others. We need to show that true Christianity is powerfully different from every other belief system on earth because we have not only a connection with God, but can appropriate the power of God to deliver.
If you are Conservative in any way, worshiping God in any religion besides Christianity, you have an obligation before your God to demonstrate your faith as well. Only the genuine heart of love at work in our lives will touch another person’s heart. If you believe that your God can work a miracle through you in another person’s life, then be bold enough to work that miracle of love.
Will we be perfect? No. Will we make mistakes along the way? Yes. But the Word promises that love covers a multitude of sins. If we want to restore morals in our culture, we have to start doing something that is different from what we are doing now. Religion alone is a failure. The fact that we have to do this discussion at all proves that religion alone has lost our culture of moral responsibility and Godly reverence. Humanism and Scientific Atheism exist without any morals or responsibility with one another, but to individual desires alone. There is no room for love in a “Dog eat dog” society, it’s war at any cost, and survival of the fittest. This is not the Christian way, the Godly way, the moral way, or the way of responsible humanity.
If you are a Christian like me, then we have to cast off our fear of failure and learn how to listen to God’s direct revelation Word in our hearts. The Bible promises that the Holy Spirit never lies to us. It is called the Spirit of Truth, the Power of God, the Comforter, God dwelling in our hearts, and Christ in us. Jesus told his disciples that when He sends the Comforter, he would always be with them. It is a radical thing to walk by the Spirit. Radical Christianity is Christianity built upon a faith/trust relationship with God upon both His written and revelation Word. The end goal of Radical Christianity is to walk in power just as Jesus walked, to build our personal faith in God to the same level as Peter, Paul, and John in their walks.
The written Word says in 1 John 4: 17, “Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.” This is the walk every child of God is called to demonstrate. If you are walking just as Jesus did, then you are demonstrating God’s miracle working power in your life and seek to deliver others from their afflictions. Any deliverance is better than none at all. If we all build our personal faith to the level of miracle working power through our prayers for others, then we will be proving God’s reality, Jesus’ resurrection, and the fallacy of godless Atheism all at the same time. (It won’t matter what brand of Christian church you follow.) You will be as Jesus to the world. This is why “Rules for Radical Christianity” was written. This book reveals the process for any Christian to build their personal faith in God. Why wouldn’t you want that for your life?
It worked to change the pagan culture of the Romans. As long as the Word of God is true, it will work to change the Atheist culture of today and God will get the glory because of your walk in love. This book shows the process, step by step, to overcome Liberal lies in your personal life so you can demonstrate God’s power to others. The number four is the number for the world and the world is at war against God. We need to get into the battle by becoming Radical Christians and fight spiritually against godless Atheism.
