The Idolatry of the Right

I wrote a blog previously by the same name. However, today, I want to talk about something different. As you have seen previously, I have posted prophetic words, the majority of which say, “Keep the faith. Praise your way through this storm and God will fight for you,” of course talking about the elections.

I believe that these prophecies are somewhat from the Lord, but like R. Loren Sandford says, if we aren’t careful, we could tap into the wrong source, thinking it is God. He mentions that the prophets of the Bible–their primary calling is to “call out the idolatry in the people of God,” and that “they are more rejected than applauded.” Of course, I am paraphrasing.

I have even been guilty of sharing posts on Facebook by people who have written an open letter to Beth Moore who speaks against Trumpism. For that, I publically appologize and renounce such actions (for those that read this blog on Facebook).

I want to post this article where Dr. Michael L. Brown of Ask Dr. Brown and In The Line Of Fire tells us why certain people decry “Trumpism.” He says, “It isn’t so much that we compromise our message, but because of our love for America. I am a preacher of the gospel first, a political commentator second.” Of course, I am paraphrasing. I don’t care if you have been pro-choice in the past and are now pro-life and your pro-life stance fuels your “love for country.” You are obligated to search your heart. Ask the Lord this question: “Am I idolizing Trump?” We must address this. I don’t care if you feel like God Himself has called you to exclusively start a ministry exclusively devoted to the pro-life cause. I. Don’t. Care! Our kingdom is not of this world. As Jonathan Cahn says, the people that say that the Church should not by any means be in politics, and those that go to the other extreme, insisting that the government is the only way–both are wrong! I am still not conceding that Trump lost. There is election fraud and I will always most emphatically stand by the truth, especially considering that the Spirit bore witness in my own heart. However, I am going to have to go into a “spring cleaning mode,” as we all should, including ANY prolife leader reading this, and see if we aren’t idolizing the President. As Jennifer LeClaire writes in this November 5th article, the President himself may need to repent. She also mentions, like Sandford, that we are committing idolatry–that our behavior is “cultish,” as is stated by R. Loren Sandford. Even if we have to stop listening to such voices as Sid Roth, Hank Kunneman, etc. you get the point, we are going to have to stop rejecting the watchmen’s voices. In Ezekiel 33, God tells Ezekiel that it is his duty to proclaim the warning–to “sound the alarm when danger comes,” and if he doesn’t and the people perish in their sins, their blood will be on his hands, but if he warns them and they perish, he is free from guilt, and their blood is on their own heads. It is the same today with R. Loren Sandford and Jennifer LeClaire–other voices such as these. They have now sounded the alarm and I’m sure continue to sound the alarm, but if we perish in our sins, these voices will not be held accountable because we were the ones that made the decision to continue down our idolatrous path. I will not name names in this discourse. You know who you are. We’rathere all guilty. I have an admonition for us to ponder as we look at this:

Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own oppinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make. Become intimate with him in whatever you do, and he will lead you wherever you go. Don’t think for a moment that you know it all, for wisdom comes when you adore him with undivided devotion and avoid everything that’s wrong. Then you will find the healing refreshment your body and spirit long for (Proverbs 3:5-8, TPT).

Beloved, I am preaching to the choir in this respect. We need to get a Spirit-inspired faith, not a prophet-inspired faith. Understood? God bless!
