God is raising up the wild ones to invade the political mountain of influence. The wild ones come with a righteous boldness and unshakable truth.
He clearly has shown me hundreds of bold lions He has been conditioning in desert places. They have been hidden from the platforms and kept pure from the demonic idolatry of man-made, governmental kingmakers.
He is now taking the lions from the church house to the White House. These lions will release the kingdom of God and the Spirit of revival through this nation. The lions are crowding out the darkness with the pure light of the living God.
Driving Out the Darkness
Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that."
This reflects a truth found in Scripture: "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it" (John 1:5).
And Edmund Burke said, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
Now we know that evil can never triumph over the eternal kingdom of our God. We will always have victory in the Lord, but our passivity toward current and future cultural and social dynamics can, and will, dictate the world that we live in here and now. We also know from Scripture that this is not our home, and we are simply passing through. However, as a house guest in this land, and your children's, children's children being house guests in this land, do you want them to live in a violent, communistic environment? I do not want my kids and grandkids to grow up in a world where they have to hide their faith because of being labeled a "hate group" or "radical" because of our insistence on standing for truth.
Now is the time because if not now, when? If not us, then who? The Big Tech overlords, the radical left and the demonic powers in high places are pressing in hard on us, but now is the time to press back. We are not advocating violence; we are calling for bold lions to stand up and run for office.
Blessed Are the Peacemakers
Jesus said, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God." We can't be peacemakers without running into the storm to command it to be still. Your local state and federal offices will be flooded with godly men and women who fear God more than man, who speak the truth and will not be bought by demonic powers, Big Tech, big business or 30 pieces of silver. The peacemakers are coming!
Will You Make a Stand?
As I was in Washington, D.C., with a team of "bold lions," I collapsed on the steps of the Capitol building. I cried with compassion for those hurting, and I wept with pride as I could feel the boldness rising. The Lord began to speak to me that it was a lack of leadership and misguided passion that had led to the overreaction. Our forefathers pursued every diplomatic avenue before they declared war. We must pursue these positions of authority to diplomatically change our nation.
In tears, on those steps, is when God confirmed to me that I was to run for U.S. Congress. It will be a long road, and the enemy will come hard—but God will raise up a standard to protect us. Will you make a stand and help take back the political mountain of influence? Is God calling you to run for office?
Let's work together. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
