Providential Power, Not Politics

Radio talk show host Dan Bongino was telling his audience last Tuesday that the evil taking place has changed America—greatly diminished the nation’s greatness. He concluded that those of patriotic determination must resolve to fight with all political might to counter the wickedness.

Bongino said in effect that it isn’t any longer just disagreement within various governing issues, or even constitutional issues, that’s the problem—although those things concerning how to properly govern in a constitutional republic are critical. Those are important and must be vigorously defended against the progressive attempts to bring down our orderly and lawfully governed way of life.

He then played a clip of two women conversing on, I presume, a progressive podcast or broadcast program. Bongino said this is the kind of evil we as a nation are up against.

The women, obviously ultra-progressive, were talking about how the transsexual agenda is all-important and must win out over influences such as Christians and their challenges to true progress in the area of transsexuality and children.

The argument one of the women made was that those who oppose the sexual/gender changes taking place in regard to the trans movement say boys have penises and girls have vulvas, and that’s the way it is. They can’t change that as part of being born humans. The woman then said, “Why not? Why can’t people who sense or know they are other than what they were born with change if they want to change?”

In effect, she said it is each person’s right to choose which sex they want to be, and no one should be allowed to restrict that right.

This was serious-sounding discussion—grown women, very well spoken—declaring that individual human beings should choose the gender as their realization of which sex they are comes forth. They were talking about children as young as kindergartners.

Bongino then said, after playing the clip, that this sort of thing is what will destroy this nation; it is pure wickedness—evil—that is setting up to totally turn America into something other than what the country has been.

He said next that we have to fight this evil now. It has gone far beyond what formerly were merely issues of political importance. It is up to us—true patriots—to concentrate on dealing with—fighting with all we have—this demonic insanity.

Of course he is absolutely correct. It is insanity. It is the reprobate mindset of Romans 1:28. Things are not “normal.” Things we see now—every hour of every day—are more and more evil being unleashed through end-times portals into society and culture.

However, Bongino is dead wrong about how to fight it. The only armor with which to oppose this wickedness spawned by the devil and his minions (including his human minions) is to turn to the Lord Jesus Christ for heavenly assistance.

Again, Paul has told us the problem humanity faces. We see this in Scripture surrounding Ephesians 6:12.

Paul said evil men and seducers will grow worse and worse the closer the end of the age comes. Only the weapons God gives to believers can prevail against such wickedness. Things will eventuate, Jesus foretold, in conditions being just like they were in the days of Lot when He will next catastrophically intervene in the evil affairs of humankind. God’s judgment and wrath will then rain down on incorrigibly rebellious earth-dwellers.

This is why I no longer look to the political process to correct the nation’s course—to make America great. Do I mean I don’t vote any longer or do what I can to work within society to fight evil legislation and even illegal, anti-American activity? No. Of course not. But now I view all political action as all but totally useless in changing things for the better. The best such action can yield is that of helping delay the inevitable. The world and our beloved nation are headed for God’s judgment and His holy wrath.

This course of devolving into prophetic oblivion is inalterable from the standpoint of our politicians and their schemes being ineffective at best and destructive at worse. Now, with the very end of the Age of Grace (Church Age) directly in front of us on the prophetic horizon, it is time—individually, as God’s royal ambassadors—to put on that machinery of waging holy war.

And, lest we be accused of calling for physical, kinetic, violent warfare, I’m referring again to the weaponry issued by the armory of Heaven to each and every believer. Weaponry to fight a spiritual battle against the evil assaulting humanity each and every hour of each and every day…wickedness like we find within the conversation of the “progressive” women mentioned above.

But what can mere spiritual armor do to prevail against the mounting evil? God sometimes seems so far distant as we face these literal circumstances that assault.

It is a certainty that, the more the wicked one and his force ramps up the assaults, the Lord will provide his Church with the arsenal to oppose Satan and his minions.

Jesus said that the gates of Hell, the forces of evil, will not prevail against the Church. We are God’s force, indwelt by God the Holy Spirit. We will be used by the Lord of hosts to restrain this onset of evil until we are suddenly removed from the battlefield.

Here again is the arsenal each of us who name the name of Christ have been issued for battle until that marvelous moment of Rapture:

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints. (Ephesians 6:13–18)

    Any Believer who is reading the Bible and understands God’s plan for mankind know that every word you’ve spoken here is truth Terry. But the largest percentage of Christians don’t even believe in the Rapture so how will they understand that “fighting the coming changes” is futile.

    The only difference between now and previous generations is that we are being shown irrefutably that there is one escape from judgment and that is by placing our faith and trust in Jesus as the Son of God, the only propitiation for our sin, and His promises to come for those who love and believe in Him. THIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN SO! Nothing has changed except that now it’s almost impossible to deny or ignore it!

    Like most people, I have days where I am “dazed”. My mind wants to push away the evil, to hope that (the illusion of) sanity will return. But like the proverbial ringing of the bell, it cannot be un-rung. I don’t really want things to go back to the way they were; we have been living in a world of literal deception for millennia and now see clearly that God is soon bringing an end to sin…hallelujah! Of course it is going to be awful, of course it is going to be a mess, of course it is going to be Hell on Earth. How else can Satan and sin be stopped?! Corruption has soaked into every molecule of the Universe.

    Last night I woke up at 2:15 am as I often do these days. My teenage granddaughter is almost 15 and she went to church with me yesterday. She is not being raised in a godly home and the childlike love she used to have for Jesus is rapidly fading; I see it underway and it grieves me deeply. There aren’t many Believers in my circle outside of my “Faith Family” because I was only saved 5 years ago. (Praise the Lord, I am so grateful He brought me to Him before the Tribulation, such grace and love He has for me!)

    Anyway I awoke from sleep because I dreamed that women would be drafted into all the wars during those coming 7 years. We know Satan especially hates women, and will love to see them murdered on the battlefields. In the name of “equality” he will convince the warlords that this should be done, and our girls, and young women, who should be preparing for families and motherhood, will instead be destroyed. I’m certain this will come. I woke up in deep grief, it was hard to go back to sleep.

    Acceptance of their choices is the only course of action for those who have been given the gospel but still do not have eyes to see, nor ears to hear. I pray every day for the as yet unredeemed multitude of Saints who will be saved during the Tribulation. Better to “arrive late” to Heaven than never.

    It’s comforting to know that the day of the Rapture will look just like today. Maranatha!

      Hi, Robin.
      I’m an “evidence” guy. Does this mean I am unaffected by those times I felt that God was close? Certainly not, but I look for evidence, too. Not “proof,” because to me proof means there is no other answer, such as 2 + 2 = 4. No other possibility with that.

      When it comes to the existence of God, who Jesus was, and all the things he said of himself, I rely on the historical evidence because no direct evidence is possible. No audio-video technology back then – and that itself is capable of manipulation, anyway. The Bible, mainly, and extra-biblical sources such as Josephus provide enough of that for me to accept that Jesus is who he says he was.

      Here are some more points you might like to bring up with your granddaughter:

      1) Read together the Olivet Discourse (Mark 13, Matthew 24 & 25, Luke 21) and ask her if much of it already sounds awfully familiar and then ask her how Jesus could possibly be so accurate almost 2000 years ago if he wasn’t who he said he was. (By the way, the opening verses about the temple being destroyed were fulfilled exactly as he described about 37 years after Jesus said it would happen.)

      How about Romans 1? Does what Paul said about what society would become sound a lot like it is now?

      2) The religious and governmental authorities wanted to put a stop to this “Resurrection” claim Jesus’ disciples were proclaiming. Easiest way would have been to “trot out the body.” Joseph of Arimathea got the body from Pilate, Pilate knew where it was buried, sealed the tomb at the request of the religious leaders, and set guards in place. So, if the body was still there, it would have been an easy thing to do. That they didn’t sure suggests strongly that it was no longer there. (Bear in mind that if the guards had been remiss and let it get stolen, the penalty for this failure would have been their deaths.)

      Along these lines, all the apostles except John were killed for their testimony about Jesus, and he was imprisoned on Patmos for it when he was an old man. It is pretty much a given that no one will die for something they know is a lie – but people will and have died so for something they believe to be the truth. Therefore, all of them must have absolutely believed Jesus was God Incarnate and that he did indeed rise from the dead, right?

      3) How do you explain the re-establishment of Israel in its homeland despite the Jews being conquered and persecuted for thousands of years? Why didn’t they they totally assimilate and fade into the local populations of all the places they were dispersed to over all this time?

      Well, these are just some places to start a discussion.

      I hope this helps!
