"I, along with many others, believe God raised America for a special purpose. The fact is, most American citizens don't believe that. Only 20% of Americans believe and put their faith in biblical values. I used to love to go to Donald Trump rallies. When you were in the arena, the morale was high and filled with excitement for the future of the country. But, a lot of Americans didn't feel that way. When you are in a certain sphere of influence you are impacted and encouraged by those like-minded people around you." - Stephen Strang
Can you blame the lost for not placing their faith in the false gods Strang offers them? Donald Trump? For years now we have watched Strang and his compatriots liken Trump to the second coming of King Cyrus with a Deborah mantle and an Elijah calling - all true stories. Why is it that only 35% of the people felt this fantastic excitement? Perhaps because they see Trump more honestly than Strang. A failed businessman, who bankrupted multiple businesses. A failed husband who cheated on all three of his wives. A man who cheated on a pregnant Melania with a porno star and then tried to cover it up with hush money. Because you know, Jesus. This is your "Christian" idol. The hypocrisy was not lost on the lost for while the things of God are foolishness to them - carnal hypocrisy is not.
"Barry Meguiar made a point that I think is important for everyone to recognize: "The reelection of Trump's agenda to 'Make America Great Again' would have been out of step with God's judgment on America and End Times prophecies." He notes that America isn't even mentioned in last day prophecies. It is clear the eternal judgment of God is upon this nation. Something is building toward the end of time and Meguiar says America has earned God's judgement a thousand times over. "In two short years, America has lost the world's respect and our nation's confidence," he says." - Stephen Strang
When they had reached the bottom they just kept on digging. The Trump MAGA agenda is now deemed to be in step with the will of God Almighty. Wow again. You know, the folks who stormed the Capital, defecated in the well of the Senate, killed police officers and then stopped to pray thanks to Jesus. It is true that God's judgement upon this land will come, as it will for every nation. The problem with Strang and Meguiar is that they only blame the "other" side. You can easily tell how slanted this view is by the lies here about America, which has regained the world's respect over the past two years after watching Donald Trump erode it for four years. Unless Strang considers Vladimir Putin our ally and NATO our enemies. At least our current president doesn't push the leader of Montenegro out of the way for photo ops. That is not to defend one side over the other but to show how utterly deceitful it is to pretend that your guy is everything good and the other guy is everything bad.
"Despite that stark reality, have hope that we serve the eternal God. We need to be encouraged. It looks like it's getting really bad, but the truth is, we are a people who believe that following the grim future is the 1,000 year reign of Jesus on earth. We don't talk about this very much in church anymore. The world is not ending because the midterms did not go as planned. God is on the throne. Hebrews 11 talks about the heroes of the faith and how many died without seeing the promise fulfilled in their day. The key is that they died in faith and scripture says "having seen them from afar, were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth." The chapter tells us that anyone who thinks of the country out of which they came, would have the opportunity to return. The heroes of the faith weren't meditating on the state of the world but they had a heavenly perspective. They recognized they were just pilgrims on earth and they desired a heavenly homeland. They lived in the reality that God was preparing a place for them and that is where their hope rested." - Stephen Strang
Yes! This is the entire point which is completely contradictory to the rest of this article and Strang's overall body of work! We are but pilgrims on this earth! Our homeland is heaven! God does not allow dual citizenship! The reason we do not talk about this in church anymore is because Strang doesn't use his platform to pursue the things of God! The apostate church is dominionist because of Charisma. Because of Strang. The eternally sad thing is that Strang fails to see that when he stands before Christ he will answer. He will answer for the souls he led astray to worship the political idols of this world. Paragraphs like this only prove that he knows better.
"We have a responsibility as believers to vote, run for office and encourage those who are in politics. With that in mind, we need to look beyond politics. These problems our nation is facing are going to continue despite what happened in the midterms. Set your gaze upon Jesus and the reality that He has paid it all. We will be joined together with Him one day for all eternity. There is nothing more joyful than that." - Stephen Strang
It is so frustrating to watch someone go from pilgrims and sojourners to thinking it is our Christian responsibility to vote. Beloved it is not. You can argue it is a civic responsibility but then you should just realize that your citizenship is not here. The world always gives you two evil choices the best you can ever do is try and discern the lesser evil but than ask yourself how it is your Christian responsibility to vote for evil, no matter how "lesser" you may perceive it. Strang takes it further in that he absolves his lesser evil from being evil at all! Instead he confers upon them a righteousness they do not deserve. Instead he claims they are God's choice and now if you disagree you are disagreeing with God! Now if you disagree with him you become reprobate and hell bound. That is what the evils of dominionism do to you. One day those who have faith in Christ will be joined with Him. But not those who spent their days selling a false Christ and preaching a false gospel. Not those who spent their days shipwrecking the faith of others on the shores of their political idols.
