“I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive”. (John 5:43)
It is difficult not to come to the conclusion that the Church in America has abdicated its authority to political usurpers who feed on it for political gain; like leaches in a fish pond. Solomon was absolutely right when he said “there is nothing new under the sun” (Eccl 1:9). As far back as we have written history, the paradigm of the usurper has been the same. Jesus called it out during his earthly ministry, saying “from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffer violence, and the violent take it by force” (Matt 11:12).
The enemy has been storming the gates of the righteous from the day God created man and the only thing that has changed is the tools with which he does it. The church in America suffers from its own unspoken “covenant” with political parties; actually one political party!
