I just had the privilege to hear from Jack Hibbs, Paula White, Jentezen Franklin, Bishop Harry Jackson, Charlie Kirk and others at Evangelicals for Trump in Las Vegas. Here are some key takeaways from the event.
1. Silence is not an option. We can no longer hide behind the excuse, “I don’t want to get involved.” As citizens, we are given the privilege, for now, to place people in positions of leadership. Whether we like it or not, we are involved. Millions are not registered to vote, and millions of registered voters stay at home. We’ll stand in line to see a movie, but we won’t stand in line to vote and elect leaders who will affect the direction of our country. This makes a statement about what we value—and isn’t it sad?
2. Now is not the time for hand-wringing and second-guessing ourselves. Many things we’ve been praying for to happen in our nation are finally happening. So, at this stage, many of us will not apologize for backing the president, nor will we be intimidated. Unless millions of Americans and I, who are praying and truly seeking the will of the Father, are missing it, we will keep contending: “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Ps. 11:3). We are not following a man, we are revitalizing a movement—a movement back to God. I’m more concerned with our nation’s national character than I am with the president’s tweets.
3. Share the facts as often as possible. Let this sink in: Innocent children are being protected, godly counsel is surrounding President Trump, terror is being restrained, good judges are being selected, socialism is being resisted, families are being encouraged via employment (Black employment is at an all-time high), prayer is being brought back in schools, God’s wisdom is being sought, and on and on it goes, but the mainstream media are doing their best to hide all of this. We must do our best to promote it.
