Dark Winter: The Lord Is with You Mighty Warrior

As puppet Biden and the media machine systematically destroys our nation through executive orders and lies, the world can only conclude that the enemy is no longer at our gates but inside our most powerful institutions—ironically using our own National Guard to protect them.

Like many other patriots, I am distressed that the megalomaniacs who are holding the stolen reigns of power and are destroying what we love and hold dear—our freedom and our nation.

And like many other patriots, I have been praying for our nation and for God to intervene. It was during my morning prayer time with the Lord that He reminded me of the story of Gideon, who the angel of the Lord greeted with, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.”

Gideon’s response? “But sir, if the Lord is with us why has all this happened to us? Where all his wonders that our father told us about when they said, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and put us into the hand of the Median.”

It certainly feels that way. The illegally installed Biden administration has now ordered that the National Guard remain in Washington through mid-March and that a permanent wall be erected around the Capitol.

The heat on the pot is being turned up and the frog is beginning to boil, yet they are afraid of the American people. People like you and me.

The story of Gideon can be found in Judges 6. Like most of God’s inspired word, there are so many levels of meaning within the story, such as Gideon’s doubt and the nation’s sin, it would be impossible to cover them all in one article.

Rather, I thought it beneficial to look at two meaningful arcs in the story and how very appropriate they are in our current situation–and how we can be encouraged.

Today, patriots who attended the Capitol demonstration on January 6 are being hunted liked dogs. They are told by both the media and the Democrats they are white supremacists and domestic terrorists and they are using the power of an illegal state to track, interrogate, and indict true Patriots who were not a part of the violence or its planning.

In the story of Gideon, we are told that the Midianites had been oppressing the nation of Israel so much that they prepared shelters for themselves in mountain clefts, caves, and strongholds. We are close but not quite there yet.

Whenever the Israelites planted their crops, the Midianites, Amalekites, and other eastern peoples invaded the country. They destroyed all their crops and livestock. They invaded Israel solely for the purpose to ravage it. And their own “Republicans” helped them. Sound familiar?

Whenever patriots build something, the Democrats set out to ravage it. They have destroyed our educational system, entertainment industry, sports industry, our economy, our Constitution, and our religious institutions.

They tried for four years to destroy President Trump and are continuing to oppress and attack him today.

Powerful tech companies are deplatforming and censoring and silencing us. They are burning what we have planted. We are under siege.

And while our global enemies such as China seek to conquer and destroy us, the Republicans are aiding and abetting them by supporting the Democrats policies and in publicly persecuting patriots for their support of President Trump.

It is no wonder we are feeling downtrodden, but take heart in this: God says He is the same yesterday as He is today, and we see example after example through His word that He listens to the prayers of His people.

“When the Israelites cried to the Lord because of Midian, he sent them a prophet, who said: I brought you up out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. I snatched you from the power of Egypt and from the hand of all your oppressors. I drove them from before you and gave you their land, I said to you. I am the Lord your God; do not worship the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you live. But you have not listened to me.”

Nevertheless, God showed his mercy to the people of Israel and He will be merciful to us. We are told in the story of Gideon that it was God who gave them over to their enemies for a time, even setting the length of the oppression—seven years.

Gideon questioned why God would choose him as a vessel to free his nation from the oppression of the Midianites, even telling God–as if He didn’t know–that he was from a small and insignificant clan.

And there are thousands of patriots today doing the same. They are feeling powerless, unable to overcome such an enemy as the global world order and questioning God on what they can do to save this great nation.

God answered Gideon’s doubt by simply telling him: “I will be with you, and you will strike down all the Midianites together.”

God is not going to ignore the 73 million or more Americans who voted to save our nation, to return to our values, to put God back in our government and in our schools, to end abortion, and to do what is right. We are assured that God hears the prayers of the righteous and He hears our pleas for deliverance and justice.

And God will not allow these wicked Democrats, who just sanctioned and bankrolled abortion on foreign soil with a stroke of a pen, to continue forever. There is always a limit to what God will allow.

After Gideon’s encounter with God, he set out to do what God had commanded him. First, he was told to destroy the monuments to Baal and the Asherah pole beside it—the false gods that had been erected in a nation that was meant to honor and serve God.

The situation in Israel had gotten so bad that Gideon was deathly afraid not only of Israel’s enemies but the men in his own nation who were in power. We are told that when he tore down the altars erected to the false gods, he did so at night out of fear of them—not the enemy.

When an inquiry was commissioned to find out who destroyed the altar, the men of his own nation turned on him, even demanding his death.

Sounds a lot like how Democrats are hunting down patriots and attacking their safety and livelihoods as the neocon Republicans try to save themselves and placate the left by throwing patriots under the bus.

The turncoat Republicans are no better that the Midianites, but here is what Gideon told the hostile crowd of “neocons” around him, “Are you trying to plead Baal’s cause? Are you trying to save him? If Baal really is a god, he can defend himself when someone breaks down his altar.”

Let the Democrats and liver-lily Republicans defend their own wickedness. We are going to take down their altars.

We are going to stand up to the tyrants in the Republican party who are not for the American people, who vote to award our jobs to immigrants, leave our borders open, silence our voices, and sanction our persecution.

The time for pacification is over. Perhaps Trump was our modern-day prophet–flaws and all–sent to rally the few to not only route out the wicked but to defeat them. God’s word tells us that He sets up kings and He deposes them and we know that God often uses extremely flawed people.

It is no less a daunting task for us to take back our nation from the enemy than it was for Gideon to do the same. And like many of my fellow patriots, I get discouraged, even a little depressed, at the onslaught and visciousness of the attack.

While many patriots and conservatives are eviscerating QAnon followers, I honestly feel for them. They are almost all good people who longed for a plan, but really what they were longing for was deliverance and hope.

We were a virtual Trump army and we were poised to take back our nation and to taste the sweetness of victory.

But God will never allow His glory to be given to another. In Judges, Gideon raises an army of men to attack the Midianites, but God told him, “You have too many men for me to deliver Midian into their hands.”

In order that Israel would not boast against the Lord that it was their own strength that saved them, God winnows the men down to a mere 300 hundred.

And when the chaos on the Capitol occurred on January 6, we were shown who was standing for righteousness and who would not stand. The ranks are being winnowed to a few good men and women. And this is what we need. We must take out the trash.

God ultimately destroys the Midianites through his imperfect chosen man Gideon, and he did it in a most fascinating way. He turned the enemy upon themselves. “The Lord caused the men [the Midianites] throughout the camp to turn on each other with their own swords.”

God has a way of repaying his enemies by turning their wicked deeds back into their own laps. The story of Hamas in Esther and what happened to the generals, priests, and other men who plotted a coup against King David should remind us all that we serve a mighty God.

I love President Trump, but he is not who we look to for our deliverance. When Gideon had destroyed Israel’s enemies, the people said to him, “Rule over us—you, your son and your grandson—because you saved us out of the hand of the Midian.”

God certainly used President Trump and we must always be grateful for that and to continue to pray for him, but we must be like Gideon, who told the people: “I will not rule over you, nor will my son rule over you. The Lord will rule over you.”

That being said, I don’t rule out another Trump run should he not be impeached or that God is yet through with him. In the meantime, let us look to God for our deliverance and remember, the Lord is with you, mighty warrior. God bless you my friends and may you #Reignwell.
