Brothers and sisters in Christ…
The following is a transcript of Todd Starnes’ [Christian radio commentator] radio commentary…heard on hundreds of radio stations around the nation:
Hello Americans. I’m Todd Starnes with news and commentary next. There’s no polite way to say this, folks…but the Establishment wing of the Republican Party has betrayed the American people. Mitch McConnell and the Never Trumpers rolled over and let the Democrats steal the 2020 presidential election as well as the Georgia Senate races.
They were more than willing to sacrifice their leadership positions provided it led to the destruction of the Make America Great Again movement. And the reality is…McConnell and Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and the Swamp…won the day. I know many of you are frustrated. Many of you are discouraged. Ready to throw in the towel. But we can’t do that. Our country needs brave-hearted patriots who are willing to defend freedom. We are about to go through a very bad season in American history. And we have to lead others out of this political darkness that is descending upon our Nation. Just remember. No matter how difficult or dark the coming days may be…just remember that God is still in control. So let not your heart be troubled, America.
Child of the Most High God…I am the Sovereign All-Ruler over all things, over all Creation…Sovereign over the heavens and all that’s in it, Sovereign over the Earth and all that’s on it, Sovereign over the spirit world and all that’s in it, Sovereign over everything that touches your life.
I exercise My Sovereignty perfectly over all things. I exercise My Sovereignty immediately, completely, and continually over all things; I am not a God Who is careless, complacent, or indifferent.
Nothing takes place on the face of this Earth, nothing takes place in the heavens above, nothing takes place in the spirit world, and nothing can touch your life, apart from My having either Personally caused it to happen, or My having specifically, consciously, and deliberately allowed it to happen. And all to accomplish My Own good purpose.
All that I do is necessarily the very best, very kindest, most loving thing that can possibly be. And although oftentimes you may not understand…yet, even so, you can trust in Me with an unwavering child-like trust. For I make all things work together for your good. [Triune God]
I am the Sovereign All-Ruler over all Creation. Before Me, all the nations of the Earth and their inhabitants are but a drop in a bucket…no more than dust on the scales. I accomplish My Own will in dealing with the powers of Heaven and the peoples of the Earth. No one can hold back My hand or question Me concerning What I am doing! [Triune God…Dan 4:35]
I exercise My Sovereignty perfectly over all Creation. Remember the former things, those of long ago. I am God, and there is none other; I am God, and there is none like Me. From the very beginning I had made known the future, and told you beforehand what is yet to come, saying, “My purposes will stand, and I will do all in accordance with My Own will.” [Triune God…Isa 46:9-10]
I exercise My Sovereignty perfectly over all Creation. I Myself have sworn, “Most assuredly…as I have planned, so shall it come to pass; as I have purposed, so shall it stand! I Myself have purposed, and no one can override Me! My hand is stretched out, and no one can turn it back or hinder Me!” [Triune God…Isa 14:24, 27]
Beloved…are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from My knowledge and consent! I know the very number of hairs on your head…not one hair of your head will fall to the ground apart from My will! [Father God…Matt 10:29-30]
At My command the heavens were created, and all their starry host by the breath of My mouth. For I spoke, and it came into existence; I commanded, and it stood fast. I nullify the counsel of the nations; I thwart the thoughts and plans of its peoples! But My Own plans stand firm forever, the purposes of My Sovereign will prevail throughout all generations! [Triune God…Ps 33:6, 9-11]
Are you still unwilling to whole-heartedly trust Me? Concerning things yet to come, do you question Me about what the future holds for My children? Would you dictate to Me what the work of My hands should be? It is I Who made the Earth and created Mankind upon it! My Own hands stretched out the heavens; I alone marshaled their starry hosts! [Triune God…Isa 45:11-12]
Beloved…you are My child, in whom I am well-pleased. I love you with a fathomless love; you are the apple of My eye. I take great pleasure in you,
**__________ **. Come, abide with Me in the shelter of the Most High…here in the Holy of Holies, in My unclouded Presence within the Heavenly Sanctuary, where you will find your home and your resting place in the shadow of the Almighty, sheltered in My loving arms. I am your Refuge and your Fortress, your God and Father, in Whom you may trust with an unwavering child-like trust, and in Whom you may continually be at rest in an unruffled child-like rest. In My loving arms, **________**, you will find rest for your soul; all shall be peaceful and calm, tranquil and unruffled.
Surely, My beloved child, I shall deliver you from the hidden traps and from deadly hazards. I shall cover you with My pinions, and under My wings you shall abide with Me and find refuge. You will be safe in My care; My truth and My faithfulness will protect and defend you. You need not be afraid of any terror of the night, nor the sudden evil attacks of the enemy during the day, nor of any dreaded diseases that stalk in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death of disasters that surprise and lay waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, **________**, and ten thousand at your right hand…but these evils will not touch you! Safe and secure in the secret place of the Most High, you will be only a spectator as you witness the recompense of the wicked.
Because you have made Me your refuge, **________**, and the Most High your dwelling place, there shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your dwelling place. For I give My angels special charge over you, to accompany, defend, and preserve you in all your ways of obedience and service. They will steady you with their hands, and keep you from stumbling against the rocks on the pathway. You can safely meet a lion or step on poisonous snakes; you will walk unharmed among them…yes, even trample them beneath your feet!
Because you have set your love upon Me, **_______ **, therefore will I deliver you. I will set you on high, because you know and understand My Name through our deep and intimate Sacred Covenant relationship. Because you are My beloved child, You shall call upon Me and I will answer you; I will be with you in trouble, I will deliver you and honor you. With long life will I satisfy you and show you My salvation.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…This is where I stand. I don’t know why God has been exhorting me to continually warn the brethren to be prepared with a supply of food and necessities…but I am not giving up my own provisions at this point in time. I am holding on, and I will wait and see what takes place. And so I continue to encourage you…Make provision for the physical sustenance of your family and yourself [refer to https://preservechristianfamily.org/2017/02/26/brace-yourself-prepare/]. A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep on going, and suffer for it. [Proverbs 22:3]
The Lord always warns His holy remnant beforehand, so that they will always be prepared and never taken by surprise like the unbelievers and the lukewarm. Make provision for yourself and your family materially, spiritually, and emotionally NOW for what the Lord is warning will take place so as to not be overwhelmed by a severe scarcity of goods, and thereby spiral into debilitating emotional depression!
You need to be prepared and available as a minister of the Lord to a dying world: Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the Word of life. [Phil 2:14-16] We have been raised up by the Lord for such a time as this!
When God’s judgments come upon the Earth, the people of the world learn righteousness. Even so, though grace is shown to the wicked, still, they do not learn righteousness. Even in a land of uprightness, they keep going on doing evil and regard not the majesty of the LORD.
“Brace yourself, and tell others that I have warned them to brace themselves, for they are about to see even more shocking things. Ready or not, Nation, here it comes! Brace yourself on My Word and on My promises, and do not rely on your own strength. Do not stop bracing yourselves, and don’t look back; the storm will not pass until I, the Lord, stop the storm! Those who refuse to get ready will be wanting in the end.” I still hold to these words of warning from the Holy Spirit.
But if the watchman sees the danger coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people, and the sword comes and takes the life of even one of them, that one will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood. [Ezek 33:6]
Lord God Almighty, as Your watchman I have been solemnly fulfilling the responsibility You have given me in sounding the alarm to warn Your people; there will be no blood on my hands.
Come, My people, enter your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the Lord’s wrath has passed by. For behold, the Lord is coming out of His Heavenly Sanctuary to punish the inhabitants of the Earth for their iniquity. The Earth also will disclose the blood shed upon her, and the ground will no longer hide those who have been murdered…63 million unborn children slaughtered in cold-blooded murder…and conceal her guilt. They will be brought out for all to see. [Isa 26:20-21]
We are encouraged, though, to keep our own integrity in times of common apostasy, that, if we do so, we shall be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.
We are in the Last Days; time is moving very quickly, and we are drawing near! God is calling a holy remnant to Himself…to personal revival…a holy remnant of His children who will not bow down, who will not shrink back, who will not compromise, who will remain steadfast and immovable in their commitment to follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes. God’s holy remnant is called to a life of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial…to walk along the path that Christ Jesus Personally walked and dedicated for us, and to follow in His footsteps as our forerunner. You cannot become part of My holy remnant without being willing to sacrifice your desire for anything and everything you own. Obedience is what characterizes the life of My child…obedience continually and unceasingly day and night. You are called to a life of obedience. Obedience is better than sacrifice; rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness as evil as worshiping idols. [1 Sam 15:22,23]
Friends, brothers and sisters, this is our Lord’s exhortation…
Arise My bride, and prepare to pray:
- Pray to strengthen the backbone of the Church. The current ongoing persecution of the Church and of Christians is going to escalate exponentially; it is going to get MUCH WORSE.
- Pray for the cleansing of the corruption in the Church. God is going to expose and purge corruption within His Church, and separate the wheat from the chaff…separate His True church from the apostate churches that no longer belong to Him. He is going to expose false prophets and teachers, and wolves dressed in sheep clothing pretending to be shepherds.
- Pray for a Great Harvest: It is a call to preach the gospel to everyone, everywhere; God will use His holy remnant to seek and to save the lost. There will be a great harvest of souls in these Last Days. Jesus said to them, “Go throughout the whole world and preach the good news of the Gospel to everyone, everywhere. With My authority, take this message of repentance to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: There is forgiveness of sins for all who turn to Me. [Mark 16:15; Luke 24:47]
And now, Lord God Almighty…bring rains to our drought-stricken lives, so that those who sow in tears, invoking the Lord of the Harvest, will reap with songs of Joy. He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying bountiful sheaves from the harvest with him! [Ps 126:3-6] Hallelujah!
Arise My bride, and prepare for battle. There is going to be severe Satanic, demonic attacks against God’s holy remnant of committed, uncompromising, steadfast Christians, pastors, and leaders [not the lukewarm], and against marriages, families, and children in these coming days! There is going to be severe attacks and intense persecution coming from pretending “Christians” within the church, against pastors who preach the uncompromised Word of God. For the time is coming when people will not tolerate sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching for something self-pleasing and gratifying, they will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. [2 Tim 4:3-5]
Woe to the inhabitants of the Earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short. [Rev 12:12]
Arise My bride, and prepare to see My Face. Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.
“Behold”, says the Lord Jesus in His last warning for the last opportunity offered to mankind to be among His redeemed, “I come for the last time like a thief in the night to gather those who would be among the elect! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, in watchfulness, prayer and readiness for the summons when it comes, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed, eternally without remedy.”
ENDURE TO THE END
I am coming quickly. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will deprive you of your crown. Everyone who overcomes by means of their faith…I will make a pillar in the Sanctuary of My God. Never again will you leave it. I will write on you the name of My God and you will be a citizen in the city of My God…the new Jerusalem…which will come down out of Heaven from My God; I will also write on you My Own new name.
Friends, brothers and sisters…
There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
