The Religious Spirit in America

Donald Trump for President_taylor

I have waited for several months to write this post. I understand the repercussions, the potential misunderstandings, and the offense that this post will bring. I have counted the cost, and I cannot be silent any longer. I have clearly seen and heard some things from the Lord that I want to share with anyone who’s willing to listen. Please read slowly and prayerfully and with as much humility as you can muster.

The Lord showed me last year in 2015 that He was going to confront and expose the Politically Correct spirit in America. As we look back, it is easy to see that this deceptive spirit was dealt a mighty blow and has lost much of its stranglehold on our nation. Thank God! He then showed me that He was going to confront and expose the Religiously Correct spirit in America in 2016. It’s only February, and it has already begun in full force.

The demonic stronghold of the liberal left is the Politically Correct spirit.
The demonic stronghold of the conservative right is the Religiously Correct spirit.

Both sides of this coin are extremely dangerous and deceptive and detrimental to the health and prosperity of the United States.

If he dropped out of the race today, Donald Trump has already been used by the Lord (yes, I said used by the Lord) to wreak havoc on both of these strongholds in America. I don’t think anyone else has ever done that. I don’t think he even knows that he’s done it either. He seems to have some unexplainable anointing on him right now to demolish both of these strongholds. It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen. Trump has become the most polarizing figure in modern times. There is no middle ground. People either love him or hate him, which is true of every great leader in history, including God’s own son.

Please read what I am about to say carefully so you don’t misunderstand me…
I heard this directly from the Lord:
“Not everyone who hates Trump has a religious spirit, but everyone who has a religious spirit hates Trump.”
You may have to think about that one for a while.

The religious spirit is the meanest, most hateful, critical, cruel, and even murderous spirit on the planet. In fact, it is the religious spirit that was responsible for the murder of Jesus. I am in no way trying to compare Donald Trump to Jesus, but if you listen carefully, you can hear the religious right screaming to the top of their lungs, “Crucify him! Crucify him!”

Donald Trump is going to force the American Church in 2016 to face their own demons. I can promise you this, it’s going to be ugly. Good upstanding moral Christians are going to be faced with their own hate, judgment, pride, hypocrisy, and murderous thoughts. I know this is heavy, but I have never heard something so clearly from the Lord.

So, what do we do now? I can tell you what I’m doing. I’m humbling myself before the Lord daily and asking Him to deliver me from any and all control and influence of the religious spirit. The fact is we all deal with this spirit to some measure or degree. God is gracious. God is merciful. And He is always willing to deliver us if we will humble ourselves, confess our sins, and repent. May the church take a hard look in the mirror this year and be cleansed from the religious spirit. Amen.

    The Lord gave me this vision and word two weeks ago on 3/7/16 Exposing The Religious Spirit of Python Strangling America by JoBeth Kested
    During a time of prayer, I heard the Lord say, “I am coming to expose and to deal with the spirit of political correctness in America and the religious legalism in My church.” I began to pray asking the Lord for clarity as I tried to discern something that was so oppressive and strong; that was arrogant, controlling, smothering, constricting, oppressive and deadly. Then I saw in the spirit, a huge, massive, two headed Python with its heads held high; with cold, penetrating eyes and tightly coiled body behind it.
    I gasped and cringed at the horrible realization that both these spirits of political correctness and religious legalism, were of the same religious spirit! The Python snakes name is PRIDE. I knew the coils were squeezing the life out of the America but, I asked the Lord to show me what was held captive in the coils.

    Then I could see from a side view that it was Uncle Sam, dressed like he is often portrayed in a suit of red, white and blue with the Stars and Stripes of the flag, and he was held tightly In the snakes coils from his feet up to his chest under his arms. On his head was a white top hat with a wide red band wrapped around the base and a white label on the front that had the word FREEDOM written on it in large black capital letters. I saw that Uncle Sam was holding something in His hands which were unrestricted. Then he raised his arms above his head and a white flag unfurled with a green spruce tree in the middle and in large black letters written across the top that said AN APPEAL TO HEAVEN. I felt so stunned and almost overwhelmed with grief in what I was grasping.

    The Lord showed me one of the powerful reasons why His hand is upon Donald Trump is because he is exposing both the heads of this two headed religious spirit of Python in America. Trump has denounced the liberals controlling restrictions of political correctness numerous times. Since Trump’s bold public declaration of being a Christian and proud of it, there has been a flood of Christian leaders denouncing him and renouncing his qualifications for President. This exposes the legalistic restrictions of the religious spirit too prevalent amongst Evangelical Christianity in America.

    “Remember that judgement starts first with those in My house. Remember that II Chronicles 7:14 begins by stating that “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, pray and seek my face, turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” I am removing the blinders from your eyes to expose the suffocating spirit of religion that holds onto the right to judge, criticize, reject, and condemn; even for character assassination and destruction; which is no different from the world’s spirit of correctness that spews such hatred and death wishes for all who disagree and oppose it.

    Mr. Chris,

    GOD bless you SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much for speaking the truth. I have agreed with this right from the beginning. God has released several prophetic words, dreams and visions letting us know ahead of time and even showed and named Trump. Lance Wallnau is calling him God’s wrecking ball to this nation. And also says that he has a Cyrus Anointing on him…I agree. I am praying continuously for Trump’s protection, I have even asked for Angels to surround him and his family. I am thankful for ALL GOD is doing in the earth at this time. While we see chaos everywhere we are also seeing powerful moves of GOD begin to happen in our country. God bless you for sharing this. Thank you! Marggee

    Chris, this:

    “Not everyone who hates Trump has a religious spirit, but everyone who has a religious spirit hates Trump.”

    Is fantastic! The third time I read it, it hit me like… KAPOW! Then a bunch more pieces of the puzzle suddenly fit together! I am so glad you shared this!

    You are spot on about the religous spirit, brother. Spot on. And you are doing what we all need to do. Humbling yourself and praying.

    2 Chronicles 7:14 says:
    If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

    His Spirit will come through repentance, not the “fire and glory” move of god.

    So right on … Thank you for sharing.. I agree with all that you’ve said .. God has had me praying for 8 yrs that Donald Trump would run for Presidebtv. When he took that ride down the escalator and announced he was running I knew I had heard Gods voice and his heart. I believe Gods anointing is very evident on his life for the job..

    Chris, Very interesting thoughts. I do believe that the Lord is using Trump to expose and shake things up politically. However, I believe this can be said of the other Republican leader in this election cycle. There is a stark contrast between the two leaders in the Republican race. One refuses to bow down to political correctness just to be admitted to the crony club. There is no doubt where he stands in regard to his relationship with God. On the contrary, with Trump, he admits that he’s never asked anyone for forgiveness including the Lord. That says to me that perhaps he isn’t as Christian as he believes he is. Or maybe he’s not as Christian as he wants us to THINK he is.

    I have come face to face witht the spirit of religion. I have struggled under its control and hatred. I’ve watched it as it destroyed homes, lives, livlihoods and dreams. I believe it’s one of the ugliest presences in our world because it diguises itself as Christian. It makes what should be one the safest places on Earth, your church, a battlefield complete with hidden landmines. I understand its ungodliness. It disguises itself as church doctrine. It gives itself the names of righteous judgement and accountability, when it is the exact opposite. It’s an outsider who has infiltrated the family and operates freely under the skirts of Christianity.

    If we think of Christianity as a wide road, what the Lord permits us to do on that road is pretty wide. We’re allowed to worship in almost any manner – quietly, dancing, shouting, prayerfully, openly, in solitude. The perimeters He gives us are pretty wide. However, on the edge of His roads are ditches. If you’re on the road, He allows a lot of freedom. But, there is a fine line where the godly becomes ungodly. Just one single step too far off either side of the road and you fall into one of those ditches.There is a fine line where the godly becomes ungodly.

    For instance, a spirit of excellence (Christlike and kingdom minded); if you take one step too far it becomes a spirit of perfection (slavery and opression). The same is true with a spirit of righteousness. There are many ways righteousness is shown. But, the ditches on the road of righteousness are there. The ditch on one side of righteousness is a spirit of religion. As for the ditch on the opposite side of the road of righteousness, you might think it’s the spirit of anti-Christ. But, I’m convinced that it’s not. I’m convinced that the opposite ditch of lawlessness is a spirit of tolerance.

    Speaking ONLY of the confines of Christianity, how much are we supposed tolerate? Complete tolerance of all religions, ideologies, even actions leads to NO Christianity. Even in today’s recent news, Trump has said he has never asked God’s forgiveness for anything. He says,”I am not sure I have. I don’t like to have to ask for forgiveness. And I am good. I don’t do a lot of things that are bad. I try to do nothing that is bad. I think if I do something wrong, I think, I just try and make it right. I don’t bring God into that picture. I don’t.” Did you catch that? He’s not sure he’s asked for forgiveness….EVER!

    This is a far cry from the Bible states is a step of faith and for being a Christian. Asking for forgiveness is THE basis for becoming a Christian. Judging statement? You bet. We’re told to judge righteousely (John 7:24). 1 John 4:1 – “…test the spirits to see whether they are from God…” 1 Cornithians 2:15 – “The spiritual person judges all things…” Galatians 6:1 says, “Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression…” If we don’t judge how are we to be able to determine whether a brother/sister is caught in a transgression?

    It seems that it’s become religiously incorrect to take a stand against ungodly actions, thoughts or words. The religiously “correct” thing to do has become to stand back, allow any and all kinds of behavior to take place in and out of the church. God forbid you should call a brother or sister to account for any of their un-Christian actions or behaviors. While I might agree with you about the use of Trump as a wakeup call, I refuse to stand back and do nothing and participate in the spirit of ungodly tolerance invading the Body of Christ.

    I have an unending uneasy feeling about the rich buying the top leadership of a country. I do believe God wants nations to change for the better and it will only be done in Him and through Him. As a Canadian First Nation I have watched and prayed for our nations and will continue to do so but I am not sure if Trump is the right man to lead America and I don’t think Clinton should be the leader either. America politics is hard to follow.

    One thing is certain, there are ancient boundaries that need to be addressed. God is a God of order.

    Yes. For those religious people including myself that think he is on a power trip! I agree being an evangelical in the U.S. The man is popular because he says what most people will not. That is what makes him who he is. No! He is not Jesus but God does not bless a man unless He knows the man will use the resources to bring about change. Seems to be right in line with Mr Trump. He is tenacious and fighting the good fight. I love his resolve to maintain an attitude to lead. I would love to meet him one day. City boy from the east coast with no political bent. Have actually turned it off so my heart doesn’t get pulled into the rhetoric. Say what you will but my attitude has changed. I would probably vote for him. Honestly do not see anyone else worthy of the leadership skills to run a nation.
    God bless you friend. Health. Long life and many votes.

    Well said. I am seeing these forces, too, and God bless you for standing up to the seemingly overwhelming wave of disparagement, snideness, and arrogance that has infiltrated this great nation, a spirit that so often claims 1. That God doesn’t exist /or/ 2. That there is some limit on whom God can use to exercise His will.
