Don't let this statement throw you, but hear me out. America is now known as a homosexual nation. It is run and dominated by a homosexual agenda and now even a transgender agenda. And yet homosexuals are only 2% of our population. They control the cultural conversation, our media, our educational system and language. You can no longer counsel gays or transgenders without backlash and persecution. You can no longer talk about family values because it offends them.
The homosexual agenda controls our movies and television. Homosexuals control aspects of our government and our laws. Never did I think this could ever be in America. Our forefathers are rolling over in their graves.
But guess what? Of course the majority of our nation are not homosexuals. It's just that the 2% have been resolute and demonstrated resolve and dominated the majority who are indifferent. They lie better than the church tells the truth. The radicality that the church should have been demonstrating for righteousness, the homosexuals have demonstrated for evil. Shame on us.
History teaches us that in the American Revolution, only one-third of the people in the young colonies were truly patriots seeking independence from Britain's tyrannical government. Another third were loyalists to the king, while the remaining 33-40% were indifferent and didn't care one way or the other. That is how it is today.
Those old patriots had a depth of conviction and were unflinching in their resolve. They were committed to their freedom and liberty. "Give me liberty or give me death" was their desperate cry. They had great courage for a cause that would extend to their children and grandchildren and future generations. Sacrifice and suffering were embraced as virtues. They defined their moment. It's time for some real spiritual patriots to arise who won't give up until there's reformation and revival in our land and the world.
God only needs a small consecrated company. It's actually a consistent theme in the Scriptures that a minority is what He prefers. Gideon's 300 were enough, and they recaptured seven years of a lost harvest from thousands of the enemies of God. The 120 in the upper room were enough. They were a threat to the Roman Empire who shook their world and turned it upside down for Christ. God has a mighty remnant who have not bowed their knee to Baal, and they can change this nation and the world.
As I heard someone say recently, we are in a defining moment in history, when what is done in that moment will affect the future. A defining moment is a moment that puts a nation, a culture, and a church on a different path. A defining moment is a moment when conformity to society and the status quo is challenged. It's a pushback moment when the church rises up in defiance against the rule and political correctness of the culture. A defining moment boldly proclaims to Satanic forces, "Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?" (1 Sam. 17:26b).
Someone once said: Fear and anxiety typically coral us into formatted behavior, as Israel and young David's brothers displayed toward Goliath, rather than insight and revelation, which David possessed and that offer a better way. God's way is a better way.
Defining moments are those when someone takes the pen and with decisive authorship writes the script for a new play. It's time to write a different ending to the play the world has written, and it's time to write it in accordance to God's Word.
We are moving into a defining and tipping-point moment. Defining moments are not defined by governments or politicians. They are defined by a righteous radical remnant who refuse to let anti-Christian people with corrupt agendas define the moment. God gives us courage and authority to define moments. He expects us to be good soldiers. Throughout history, it's been the radicals in the church who define pivotal times and crisis in culture.
Karl Marx was wrong about many things, but he was right about this: Two percent who are passionate dominate the 98% who are indifferent. Indifference and passivity always lose. We need to end the delusional thinking that it takes the majority to bring forth radical change. If God be for us, the odds will always be in our favor.
"What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?" (Rom. 8:31).
In the kingdom of God, numbers never determine victories. God and His heavenly host are for radical righteousness. Heaven's cloud of witnesses are cheering us on in this final hour. All we need is a resolute minority anointed by the Spirit with some iron resolve to accomplish God's purposes and make history.
May You, oh Lord, infuse iron resolve into our souls for Your great glory. In Jesus' name. Amen.
