Never have I been more solemn about anything I have ever written. Never have I felt the need to risk whatever credibility I may have with you. I am going against the grain of most, if not all, of the predictions about 2021.
Social media is flooded with preachers predicting the events of 2021. Many are not of God. They are driven by the desperate need to console the weary American Church. They are telling you the worst is over. They are telling you that we are about to be relieved and no longer on a war-footing. They are saying that we can now return to a peacetime church culture.
Not only are they horribly wrong—their message will leave you open to the attack of the enemy. Their words may be sweet to the taste, but in the end, they will be bitter in your stomach. (Rev. 10:9)
So then, how do we prepare for 2021?
From now on, we as American Christians and Patriots must become a united army in a desperate battle. The most important thing to impress upon an army is the reality of the threat. There is no way around it. Army of God! You must have it drilled into you that we are facing a long and hard road ahead.
We as the American church no longer need to have our ego stroked. We need someone to raise our morale as we prepare for war.
Winston Churchill faced this very task. On May 10th, 1940, Germany invaded France and the Netherlands. That same day in England, Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain stepped down from his post, and King George VI tapped Winston Churchill to replace him. World War II was on, and Britain needed the right leader to guide the nation into the gathering storm which had begun to rage across Europe. Unlike Chamberlain and Lord Halifax, politicians who sought peace treaties and truces with Germany, Churchill recognized the necessity of war. Peace, he thought, meant submission―and submission meant death. On May 13th, Churchill gathered his war cabinet and went to address Parliament. The speech he delivered that afternoon—“Blood, Toil, Tears, and Sweat”—has become known as one of the most rousing speeches in British history. Churchill’s message was simple but powerful: Britain must fight―and Britain must win.
Churchill said these immortal words:
“I say to the House as I said to ministers who have joined this government, I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many months of struggle and suffering.
“You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalog of human crime. That is our policy.
“You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs – Victory in spite of all terrors – Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.”
China, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, CNN, Hollywood, and the Democrat Party have woven the most insidious and vile web of deceit in American history. The rigged election is, for all real Americans, our version of “a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalog of human crime.”
Thousands of pulpits, at this hour, believe the message of consolation is the message of the hour. No! It is not! We do not need comfort. We need outrage. We need the white-hot rage of a people who will not go gentle into that dark night of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Our final answer to them is, ‘No! We do not accept the bitter bread of surrender and capitulation! No! You will not educate our children by wading them into a godless swamp. No! You will not steal our small businesses and our churches. No! You will not offer us as a living sacrifice to Communist China. We will not bow. We will not surrender. Not ever!’
2021 is not a year of soothing lambs, but of igniting lions. It is a year where we say to Satan, “We have not even begun to fight.” Beyond January 6—beyond January 20—beyond whatever human deadline has been declared. We are not going to stop. We are not going to slow down. Our ranks are closing. Our numbers are growing. Our fortitude and resolve is intensifying.
Our struggle for America is not ending…it is just beginning. The enemy needs to know we are never going away.
Again, to quote Churchill, “This is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never, in nothing, great or small, large or petty…Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
I know I have been given this mandate about 2021: Forget predictions about what will happen. Instead, go after God and make something happen!
