D. JAMES KENNEDY
MINISTRIES PRESENTS: TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM TODAY ON TRUTHS THAT
TRANSFORM, WE TAKE A LOOK AT 2020. AS WE LOOK AT THE NATION
IN 2020 WE HAVE TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT THE
SPIRITUAL STATE OF OUR COUNTRY. WHAT DOES THIS NEW YEAR
HOLD FOR US, AND FOR OUR NATION? AND WHAT SHOULD BE OUR
PLAN AS CHRISTIANS? TO GO BRAVELY AND
TRUSTINGLY FORWARD LEAVING THE CONSEQUENCES TO GOD WE’LL LOOK WHAT LIES AHEAD
IN AN ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL YEAR, TODAY ON TRUTHS
THAT TRANSFORM. ♪ HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU, AND
WELCOME TO TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM, A PRODUCTION
OF D. JAMES KENNEDY MINISTRIES, WHERE WE ARE
STANDING FOR TRUTH AND DEFENDING YOUR FREEDOM. WHAT WILL 2020 HOLD
FOR OUR NATION? AS WE BEGIN THIS NEW
YEAR, IT PROMISES TO BE A WATERSHED YEAR,
DETERMINING OUR FUTURE COURSE FOR A GENERATION-
OR MORE- TO COME. ON TODAY’S PROGRAM, WE
WILL LOOK AT SOME OF THE CHALLENGES POSED BY THE
COMING YEAR, AND WE’LL GIVE YOU A BLUEPRINT FOR
HEADING INTO IT WITH HOPE AND CONFIDENCE. AND WE’LL GIVE YOU AN
OPPORTUNITY TO TELL US WHAT YOU THINK ARE THE
MOST VITAL PRIORITIES FOR US TO TAKE ON IN 2020. WE BEGIN WITH A LOOK AT
THE CURRENT SPIRITUAL STATE OF THE NATION. OUR OWN DAVID WRIGHT
BRINGS US THIS SPECIAL REPORT. AS WE LOOK AT THE NATION
IN 2020 WE HAVE TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT THE
SPIRITUAL STATE OF OUR COUNTRY. THERE’S A NUMBER OF
AREAS YOU CAN LOOK AT. WE’RE TELLING OUR YOUNG
PEOPLE YOU KNOW WHAT, YOU CAN BE WHATEVER YOU WANT,
YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR GENDER, YOU CAN CHANGE
YOUR SEXUALITY, YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR FLUIDITY. WE’RE IN A CULTURE NOW
WHERE WE’RE IN A SENSE SAYING EVERYONE IS THEIR
OWN STANDARD, THE PROBLEM WITH THAT IS THAT’S WHERE
SOME VERY DANGEROUS THINGS CAN COME IN. THAT’S WHERE YOU CAN SEE
PEOPLE THAT WOULD ESPOUSE HATE OR VIOLENCE OR DEATH
AND YOU BEGIN TO SEE ANARCHY WHEN YOU MOVE
A NATION AWAY FROM A STANDARD, YOU PUT YOURSELF
ON A JOURNEY THAT CAN BE FLAT SCARY. 2020 IS A MAJOR
ELECTION YEAR. AND WHILE THERE ARE MANY
POLITICAL CONFLICTS IN OUR NATION TODAY, THIS IS
ULTIMATELY A SPIRITUAL BATTLE. ELECTIONS HAVE
CONSEQUENCES AND THOSE THAT WERE PUT IN POWER,
PASS THE LAWS AND MAKE DECISIONS THAT
AFFECT OUR COUNTRY. PART OF THESE LAWS WERE
THE REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT ACT AND THIS IS EXACTLY
HOW WE ENDED UP WITH ILHAN OMAR IN MINNESOTA FOR
EXAMPLE, WHO CAME INTO THIS COUNTRY WHEN WE
STARTED ACCEPTING A WAVE OF SOMALI REFUGEES. SO HERE WE BRING PEOPLE
LIKE ILHAN OMAR, WHO COMES TO OUR COUNTRY, PAID
FOR BY OUR TAX DOLLARS, EDUCATED IN AMERICAN
SCHOOLS, PAID FOR BY OUR TAX DOLLARS, ENDS UP
BECOMING A MEMBER OF CONGRESS, ELECTED BY
AMERICAN CITIZENS AND HERE WE HAVE A MEMBER OF
CONGRESS WHO IS UNGRATEFUL FOR THIS COUNTRY, WHO DOES
NOT BELIEVE AMERICA IS EXCEPTIONAL, WHO TALKS
ABOUT 9/11 AS OH SOME PEOPLE DID SOMETHING, AS
IF COMPLETELY REMOVED, AS IF SOMETHING COMPLETELY
BRUSHED AWAY THAT MEANT NOTHING TO HER. ELECTION 2020 IS GOING TO
HAVE HUGE IMPACT FOR THE FUTURE OF OUR NATION,
FOR THE COURTS, FOR THE LEADERSHIP OF OUR
MILITARY, FOR OUR GOVERNMENT AND I THINK
IT’S VERY IMPORTANT FOR CHRISTIANS TO
RECOGNIZE A FEW THINGS. NUMBER ONE, WE NEED TO
REGISTER TO VOTE, NUMBER TWO, WE ACTUALLY NEED
TO VOTE AND BY THE WAY CHURCHES, NON-PROFIT
ORGANIZATIONS CAN DO BOTH OF THOSE, YOU CAN REGISTER
PEOPLE, YOU CAN DRIVE PEOPLE TO THE POLLS,
YOU CAN ORGANIZE YOUR COMMUNITIES. BUT THEN I CHALLENGE
TO MAKE SURE YOU VOTE INTELLIGENTLY. THE NUMBERS ARE CLEAR THAT
THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN AMERICA THAT IDENTIFY AS
CHRISTIANS IS A MAJORITY OF THE COUNTRY, IF THEY
JUST SHOWED UP AND VOTED, THEY COULD WIN
EVERY ELECTION. THERE WAS A CASE SEVERAL
YEARS BACK WHERE THE FIRST OPEN LESBIAN MAYOR OF
HOUSTON WANTED TO CENSOR ALL THE SERMONS OF ALL
THE PASTORS IN HOUSTON. WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT, THE
COMBINED MEMBERSHIP OF THOSE CHURCHES IN HOUSTON
IS MULTIPLE TIMES MORE THAN WHAT THE VOTE COUNT
WAS THAT GOT THIS MAYOR ELECTED IN THE
FIRST PLACE. IF THEY WOULD JUST SHOW
UP AND VOTE AND I BELIEVE THAT THE GOOD LORD IS
WATCHING EACH ONE OF US. A BIG ISSUE AT THE
FOREFRONT OF ELECTION 2020 IS ECONOMIC POLICY. THERE IS AN ASTONISHING
GROWTH IN THE POPULARITY OF SOCIALISM, ESPECIALLY
AMONG YOUNG PEOPLE, DESPITE SOCIALISM’S
TRACK RECORD. I THINK ALL OF US HAS BEEN
DISTURBED BY POLLING DATA THAT SHOWS THAT YOUNG
AMERICANS PARTICULARLY SEEM TO BE VERY OPEN
IF NOT OUTWARDLY AND COMPLETELY SUPPORTIVE OF
SOCIALISM, WHEN IN FACT ALL OVER THE WORLD AND
THROUGHOUT HISTORY, IF YOUNG PEOPLE WERE JUST
BEING TAUGHT REALITY, THEY WOULD KNOW THAT
SOCIALISM NEVER WORKS. SADLY PEOPLE IN FREE
COUNTRIES WILL SOMETIMES VOTE, VOLUNTARILY VOTE, TO
ADOPT SOCIALISM, BUT THEY ALMOST NEVER GET A CHANCE
TO VOTE THEIR WAY OUT OF SOCIALISM, ALMOST ALWAYS
WHEN PEOPLE REALIZE HOW BAD IT IS, THEY END UP
HAVING TO SHOOT THEIR WAY OUT OF SOCIALISM. YOU HAVE A WHOLE NEW
GENERATION OF AMERICANS RIGHT NOW WHO BELIEVE
SOCIALISM IS GREAT, THEY WANT US TO BE A
SOCIALIST COUNTRY. IT IS IRONIC THAT OUR
PEOPLE, OUR CHILDREN ARE MARCHING IN THE STREET
DEMANDING SOCIALISM AND WATCHING WHAT’S HAPPENING
IN CHINA RIGHT NOW WHERE THEIR PEOPLE ARE MARCHING
IN THE STREETS WAVING THE AMERICAN FLAGS AND
DEMANDING THAT CHINA BE LIKE THE UNITED
STATES OF AMERICA. BUT THIS IS A PROBLEM
BECAUSE IN THE LAST ELECTION OVER 40 MEMBERS
OF CONGRESS RAN AS SOCIALISTS. PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE
THAT, SO IT HAS BECOME FASHIONABLE RIGHT NOW,
BECAUSE IT HAD BECOME FASHIONABLE ON COLLEGE
CAMPUSES TO BE A SOCIALIST. VENEZUELA, IN A MATTER OF
13 YEARS, WENT FROM ONE OF THE MOST PROSPEROUS
COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD, TO TODAY A TOTAL SOCIALIST
COUNTRY WHERE PEOPLE ARE STARVING, THEY ARE
RATIONING FOODS, ONE MEAL A DAY, PEOPLE ARE LOSING
WEIGHT, THE WHOLE COUNTRY IS FALLING APART. IT TOOK 13 YEARS TO
TRANSFORM VENEZUELA AND THE SAME THING CAN HAPPEN
TO AMERICA AND WE CANNOT ALLOW THAT TO HAPPEN. ANOTHER AREA OF CONCERN
IN MODERN AMERICA IS THE GENDER ISSUE. GOD’S WORD CLEARLY SAYS
THAT HE MADE TWO SEXES- MALE AND FEMALE. BUT OUR CULTURE
SAYS OTHERWISE. THERE ARE 3 COMPANION
CASES CURRENTLY BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT AND IT DEALS
WITH THE REDEFINITION UNDER THE TERM “SEX”
WITHIN TITLE 7 WHICH HISTORICALLY AND
CONGRESSIONALLY, LEGISLATIVELY, ONLY MEANT
TO PROTECT THE BIOLOGICAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
MALE AND FEMALE. IT IS MEANT TO PROTECT THE
FEMALE GENDER AND SEX, BUT WHAT IS BEING CONTEMPLATED
NOW IS AN END RUN AROUND THE LEGISLATURE TO EXPAND
THAT DEFINITION TO INCLUDE SOGI LANGUAGE, WHICH MEANS
SEXUAL ORIENTATION AND GENDER IDENTITY. SO WHAT IS A STAKE HERE
IS NOT ONLY THE RIGHTS OF WOMEN, AND MAKING SURE
THAT WE ARE ACTUALLY PROTECTED HOW WE SHOULD
BE CONSTITUTIONALLY AND LEGISLATIVELY, BUT THIS
WOULD HAVE AN IMPACT ON CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES, ON
SMALL BUSINESSES, AND SO NOT ONLY ARE THESE CASES
MAKING AN END RUN AROUND THE LEGISLATURE, BUT THIS
IS NOT FOR THE JUDICIAL BRANCH TO SAY THAT SEX
AS A DEFINITION CAN BE EXPANDED TO INCLUDE SEXUAL
ORIENTATION AND GENDER IDENTITY, THAT WOULD BE
FOR THE LEGISLATURE TO CONTEMPLATE. THE PROGRESSIVE LEFT HAS
TRIED TO EXPAND THAT DEFINITION THROUGH
LEGISLATION, EQUALITY ACT AND SO FORTH THAT HAS
NEVER PASSED LEGISLATIVELY SO NOW THEY ARE TRYING
TO PUSH IT THROUGH THE COURTS. THERE IS ALSO AN ONGOING
CONFLICT BETWEEN THE SANCTITY OF LIFE ETHIC AND
THE QUALITY OF LIFE ETHIC. HUMAN LIFE IS SACRED. BUT NOT ACCORDING TO MANY
IN OUR COUNTRY TODAY. YOU KNOW, IT WAS ONE THING
WHEN WOMEN HAD ABORTIONS AND ULTRASOUND TECHNOLOGY
REALLY WASN’T AVAILABLE OR IT WASN’T PREVALENT AND
WOMEN WERE TRULY BELIEVING THEIR DOCTORS WHEN THEY
WERE TOLD THAT IT’S JUST A JUST A MASS OF TISSUE,
IT’S JUST A CLUMP OF CELLS, IT’S YOU KNOW WOMEN
CHOSE ABORTION IN TRUE IGNORANCE OF WHAT THEY
WERE DOING BUT NOW WE HAVE ALL THESE ADVANCES IN
MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY. UPWARD OF 90% OF
ABORTIONS TAKE PLACE FOR PSYCHO-SOCIAL
REASONS, RIGHT. SO CONCERNS ABOUT
FINANCES, EDUCATION, STABLE EMPLOYMENT, BEING
REJECTED BY FAMILY, HUSBAND, BOYFRIEND, FACING
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, RIGHT, THE MAJORITY OF ABORTIONS
DO TAKE PLACE FOR THOSE KIND OF REASONS. BUT THE OTHER THING WE
HAVE TO RECOGNIZE TOO IS COERCION AND FORCE, HAVE
A HUGE ROLL TO PLAY. SO THE ELLIOT INSTITUTE
PUTS OUT SOME GREAT STATISTICS ON THIS AND I
THINK IT IS ABOUT 64% OF WOMEN REPORT FEELING
PRESSURED INTO THEIR ABORTION DECISION. THE SPIRITUAL STATE OF THE
NATION IN 2020 SHOWS THAT AS A NATION, WE ARE RIPE
FOR SPIRITUAL REVIVAL AND TRUE CHANGE FROM WITHIN. AS WE LOOK AT 2020, THE
ANSWER FOR AMERICA REMAINS THE SAME, IF YOU LOOK TO 2
CHRONICLES 7, IT DOESN’T SAY IF THE JUDGES, IF THE
POLITICIANS, IF THE MEDIA, IF THE LIBERALS, IF THE
UNGODLY DO ANYTHING, IT SAYS IF MY PEOPLE. AND SADLY WHILE MANY
GROUPS ARE OUT OF THE CLOSET, MOST CHRISTIANS
I KNOW ARE FIRMLY IN THE CLOSET. THEY WANT TO GO TO HEAVEN
WHEN THEY DIE BUT THEY JUST DON’T WANT TO TALK
ABOUT JESUS DOWN HERE. IF WE DON’T GET OUT OF THE
CLOSET THESE OTHER VOICES ARE GOING TO CONTINUE
TO FILL THE VACUUM. AS YOU HAVE JUST SEEN, WE
FACE MANY CHALLENGES AT THE OUTSET OF 2020, AND
THEY AREN’T EASILY SOLVED. YET WITH GOD, ALL
THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. WE WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU
THINK IS IMPORTANT THIS YEAR. SO PLEASE CONTACT US RIGHT
AWAY TO GET OUR SPIRITUAL STATE OF THE
NATION SURVEY. THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY
TO WEIGH IN ON THE ISSUES THAT YOU WANT TO SEE
ADDRESSED THIS YEAR. IT WILL HELP GUIDE US
IN OUR PROJECTS AND PROGRAMMING, AND WE WILL
ALSO SHARE THE RESULTS OF THIS SURVEY WITH KEY
POLITICAL LEADERS, SO THEY UNDERSTAND YOUR
THINKING AS WELL. GET YOUR SPIRITUAL STATE
OF THE NATION SURVEY, FILL IT OUT, AND SEND IT BACK
TO US AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, AND MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD ON
THE KEY ISSUES OF OUR DAY. SIMPLY WRITE TO US AT: OR CALL TOLL FREE: OR GO ONLINE TO: WE UNQUESTIONABLY FACE
DIFFICULTIES IN THIS NEW YEAR. SOMETIMES THE ISSUES MAY
SEEM SO GREAT THAT THEY OVERWHELM US. BUT THAT NEED
NOT BE THE CASE. GOD’S WORD REMINDS US THAT
“AS YOUR DAYS ARE, SO SHALL YOUR STRENGTH BE.” DR. D. JAMES KENNEDY
ENCOURAGES US TODAY TO CONTINUE FORWARD, NO
MATTER THE OBSTACLES IN THIS PORTION OF HIS
SERMON, SPIRITUAL ADVANCE. TRAPPED. BOXED IN. NO WAY OF ESCAPE. NO PLACE TO TURN. NO PLACE TO HIDE. HAVE YOU EVER BEEN THERE
IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF LIFE? IT IS A TERRIBLE
AND AWFUL FEELING. THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL
FOUND THEMSELVES PRECISELY RIGHT THERE AND, INDEED,
THEY WERE RIGHT THERE BECAUSE THAT IS EXACTLY
WHERE THE LORD HAD LED THEM. THEY HAD LEFT THE CITIES
OF EGYPT AND WERE ON THEIR WAY TO FREEDOM ONLY TO
SUDDENLY FIND THEMSELVES FACING THE ROLLING BLACK
WATERS OF THE RED SEA. BEHIND THEM, THE DUST OF
PHARAOH’S CHARIOTS, AS THE ARMY OF PHARAOH
CLOSED IN UPON THEM. THEY WERE FILLED
WITH FEAR. THEY WERE LIKE SHEEP
LOOKING UP AT A PACK OF SALIVATING WOLVES WITH
EYES RED LIKE COALS FROM HELL. THEY WERE UTTERLY
ABANDONED UNTO TERROR. AND THEN A VOICE RANG OUT
THROUGH THEIR TREMBLING RANKS. “FORWARD. GO FORWARD.” THAT DAY THE CHILDREN OF
ISRAEL LEARNED A LESSON FOR THE WHOLE WORLD, THAT
IN ALL SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES OF LIFE THAT WE ARE
BRAVELY AND TRUSTINGLY TO GO FORWARD AND LEAVE
THE RESULTS TO GOD. THAT IS A VITAL LESSON
WHICH EVERY PERSON NEEDS TO LEARN IF THEY ARE
GOING TO LIVE THEIR LIVES VICTORIOUSLY. NOW, I DON’T KNOW WHAT
YOUR PARTICULAR RED SEA IS, BUT YOU DO. SOME OF YOU HAVE BEEN UP
AGAINST IT FOR YEARS. YOU’VE TRIED TO FIND
A WAY AROUND IT. YOU’VE TRIED TO
TUNNEL UNDER IT. YOU’VE TRIED TO TURN BACK
FROM IT, BUT YOU JUST FIND NO WAY OUT. YOU ARE TRAPPED. WELL, WHATEVER THAT RED
SEA EXPERIENCE IS THAT YOU ARE FACING, HAVE FACED AND
CERTAINLY WILL FACE, THE WORD OF GOD IS, ACCORDING
TO HIS COMMANDMENT, ACCORDING TO HIS WILL, IN
HIS WAY AND HIS DIRECTION IS “FORWARD!” GO FORWARD BRAVELY
TRUSTING THE OUTCOME TO GOD. OBEY HIM AND GIVE HIM THE
OPPORTUNITY OF BEARING HIS MIGHTY ARM AND SHOWING
HIS DELIVERANCE. SO, IT IS TRUE IN THE
KINGDOM OF GOD THAT EVERYONE IS EITHER GOING
FORWARD, OR THEY ARE SLIDING BACK. THE REASON FOR THAT IS
THAT WE ARE NOT ON LEVEL GROUND; WE ARE
CLIMBING THE HILL. IT’S UPWARD IN THE
SPIRITUAL LIFE. IT’S A BATTLE ONWARD AND
UPWARD TO THE CITY OF GOD. AS SOON AS WE STOP GOING
FORWARD, WE START SLIDING BACK. ARE YOU A BACKSLIDER,
DEAR CHRISTIAN? HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE YOU
LED TO CHRIST IN THE PAST YEAR, OR HAVE YOU
WITNESSED TO? HOW MANY DAYS OR HOURS
HAVE YOU GIVEN IN THE SERVICE OF CHRIST
IN ANY WAY? AH, I FEAR, DEAR FRIENDS,
THAT THERE MAY BE MANY HERE WHO ARE BACKSLIDERS. BACKSLIDING AWAY. BACKWARD, HO, BECAUSE
THERE IS NO PLACE TO REMAIN STILL IN
GOD’S KINGDOM. AH, DEAR FRIENDS, WE AS A
CHURCH NEED TO DETERMINE IN THIS COMING YEAR THAT
WE ARE GOING TO SERVE CHRIST AS WE HAVE NEVER
SERVED HIM BEFORE, TO KNOW HIM, TO GIVE OURSELVES TO
PRAYER AND TO THE STUDY OF HIS WORD AND TO MAKE HIM
KNOWN SHOULD BE THE GREAT DESIRE OF OUR HEART. WHAT IS YOUR GREAT
GOAL FOR THIS YEAR? AT THE TOP OF THAT LIST
SHOULD BE THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE KINGDOM
OF JESUS CHRIST. AGAIN, AS SPURGEON
SAID, AND I’LL CONTINUE REPEATING UNTIL I DIE:
“CHRIST NEVER TOLD US TO SEEK THE KINGDOM OF GOD;
HE TOLD US TO SEEK IT FIRST”. IS THAT AT THE TOP OF YOUR
LIST OF YOUR PRIORITIES? IF SO, THE WAY WE SEEK
THAT IS BY GOING FORWARD. WE NEED MEN AND WOMEN WHO
WILL LEARN TO SAY, “I AM DETERMINED. I AM GOING TO BE A
FAITHFUL WITNESS FOR JESUS CHRIST. I AM GOING TO BE A
FOLLOWER OF THE LAMB, A SOLDIER OF THE CROSS”. IS THAT YOUR HEART’S
DETERMINATION TODAY? AH, DEAR FRIENDS, PERHAPS
OF LATE THE SPIRIT OF GOD HAS BEEN WORKING IN YOUR
LIFE AND YOU HAVE BECOME CONVICTED ABOUT YOUR SINS,
AND YOU REALIZE THAT THIS LIFE IS SHORT AND THE
GRAVE HOLDS FOR YOU MANY TERRORS, AND BEYOND THAT,
YOU DON’T EVEN LIKE TO THINK, BUT YOU HAVE NO
ASSURANCE OF LIFE ETERNAL AND YOU WANT TO
BE A CHRISTIAN. PERHAPS YOU HAVE TRIED TO
TURN FROM YOUR SINS AND YET, LIKE THE ISRAELITES,
WHO HAVE TRIED TO GET AWAY FROM THEIR TASKMASTERS,
WHO REPRESENT SATAN AND HIS DOMINIONS, AND NOW
THEY WERE CHARGING DOWN UPON THEM TO RECAPTURE
THEM, TO BRING THEM BACK INTO BONDAGE, TO BRING
THEM BACK INTO THRALLDOM AGAIN, EVEN AS SATAN DOES
TO THOSE WHO TRY TO ESCAPE FROM THEIR OWN SINS BY
THEMSELVES IN THEIR OWN POWER. AH, MY FRIEND, YOU MAY
HAVE TURNED YOUR BACK UPON THE WORLD WHICH EGYPT
REPRESENTS, BUT NOW YOU FIND YOURSELF FACING THIS
DARK SEA AND THERE IS NO WAY ACROSS. THE WORD OF GOD IS
CLEAR, “FORWARD”. AND CHRIST, OUR GREAT
CAPTAIN, HAS GONE THROUGH THAT SEA WHICH REPRESENTS
DEATH AND THE WRATH OF GOD. HE HAS TAKEN IT ALL UPON
HIMSELF, AND HE HAS OPENED AN EVERLASTING WAY
THROUGH THAT SEA. IT IS, “FORWARD”, TO THE
CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST AND ONLY THERE WILL YOU FIND
FORGIVENESS, AS YOU INVITE HIM INTO YOUR LIFE, AS
YOU TRUST IN HIS ATONING DEATH, AS YOU EXPERIENCE
THE WONDER OF HIS GRACE AND THE NEW LIFE THAT
HE ALONE CAN GIVE. HIS WORD TO YOU IS,
“FORWARD, ONWARD”, TO THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST. I BID YOU HEAR THAT WORD
AND HEED THAT WORD TODAY, TO COME TO HIM WHO
IS WAITING FOR YOU. AH, MY FRIEND, THIS,
WHOEVER YOU ARE, IS ONE OF THE GREATEST LESSONS THAT
WE WILL EVER LEARN IN THIS WORLD. AND IF YOU WOULD BE
VICTORIOUS IN LIFE – IN WHATEVER AREA OF LIFE, YOU
NEED TO LEARN THE LESSON OF THE RED SEA, TO GO
BRAVELY AND TRUSTINGLY FORWARD, LEAVING THE
CONSEQUENCES TO GOD. AS YOU’VE JUST HEARD FROM
DR. KENNEDY, THE LORD’S WILL FOR US IS,
“FORWARD, ONWARD!” WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT 2020
AND THE OPPORTUNITY WE HAVE TO IMPACT OUR
NATION FOR JESUS CHRIST. THIS WILL BE A PIVOTAL
ELECTION YEAR, AND WE WILL BE PROCLAIMING BRACING,
BIBLICAL TRUTH ON THE NATIONAL AIRWAVES, IN
A COUNTRY THAT’S IN DESPERATE NEED OF IT. SO THAT WE CAN BETTER HONE
IN ON THE ISSUES MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU, AS WELL
AS SO WE CAN SHARE IT WITH KEY LEADERS, I WANT TO
ASK YOU TO GET OUR 2020 SPIRITUAL STATE OF THE
NATION SURVEY, FILL IT OUT, AND RETURN IT TO US

LEADERS- NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU ON THE MOST URGENT
ISSUES FACING AMERICA. SIMPLY WRITE TO US AT: OR CALL TOLL FREE: OR GO ONLINE TO: WELL, 2019 IS NOW BEHIND
US- WITH MUCH OF ITS WANING DAYS DOMINATED
BY TALK OF IMPEACHMENT. SO, HERE IS A QUESTION. DOES THE BIBLE HAVE
ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT IMPEACHMENT? WELL, AS A MATTER
OF FACT IT DOES. OUR REPUBLICAN FORM
OF GOVERNMENT- THAT’S REPUBLICAN WITH A SMALL R-
IS ONE IN WHICH THE PEOPLE ELECT THEIR OWN LEADERS. AT AMERICA’S BIRTH, NEARLY
244 YEARS AGO, AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN RECORDED
HISTORY, A NATION WAS BORN GIVING THE PEOPLE THE
RIGHT TO CHOOSE WHO GOVERNS THEM. IT IS TRUE THAT BOTH
ANCIENT ISRAEL AND ANCIENT ROME HAD FORMS OF
REPUBLICAN GOVERNMENT- BUT NOT ONE WHERE THE ORDINARY
CITIZEN PARTICIPATED IN ELECTIONS. IN DEUTERONOMY CHAPTER
ONE, THE LORD HIMSELF SETS THE STANDARD FOR LEADERS
WHEN HE SAID: “CHOOSE FOR YOUR TRIBES WISE,
UNDERSTANDING, AND EXPERIENCED MEN, AND I
WILL APPOINT THEM AS YOUR HEADS.” BUT WHAT ABOUT
IMPEACHMENT? WELL, THE FRAMERS OF
OUR CONSTITUTION WISELY INCLUDED IMPEACHMENT TO
REMOVE A PRESIDENT- BUT ONLY IF FOUND GUILTY
OF “HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS.” WORTH NOTING IS THE VERY
HIGH BAR THAT MUCH BE REACHED FOR SUCH AN
IMPEACHMENT TO BE CONSIDERED LEGITIMATE. THE CHARGES MUST BE FULLY
VETTED AND APPROVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
AND THE ACTUAL HEARING AND RULING ON THE ALLEGATIONS
MUST BE CONDUCTED BY THE SENATE- WITH THE CHIEF
JUSTICE OF THE US SUPREME COURT PRESIDING. BOTH THE HIGH STANDARD
FOR CHARGES AND THE DELIBERATIVE IMPEACHMENT
PROCESS ARE DESIGNED TO WINNOW OUT THOSE
ACCUSATIONS THAT ARE SOLELY PARTISAN IN NATURE. BUT WHAT IF A
POLITICALLY-MOTIVATED IMPEACHMENT EFFORT
PROCEEDS ANYWAY? WELL, HERE ALSO THE
FRAMERS GAVE US A POWERFUL CORRECTIVE-
THE BALLOT BOX. IN THE END, GOVERNMENT OF,
BY, AND FOR THE PEOPLE IS SUSTAINED BY CITIZENS
APPLYING THE APPROPRIATE REMEDIAL RESPONSE
ON ELECTION DAY. THE BIBLICAL CORRECTIVE
IS TO CHOOSE YOUR LEADERS CAREFULLY. I HOPE YOU WILL MAKE UP
YOUR MIND NOW, TO FULFILL THAT SACRED OBLIGATION ON
ELECTION DAY IN NOVEMBER. D. JAMES KENNEDY MINISTRIES
IS STANDING FOR TRUTH AND DEFENDING YOUR FREEDOM. THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR
THIS EDITION OF TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM. I’M FRANK WRIGHT. WE’LL SEE YOU NEXT TIME. NEXT WEEK ON TRUTHS
THAT TRANSFORM. GOD DETERMINED TO
ESTABLISH HERE A CHRISTIAN NATION. HOW DO I KNOW THAT? BECAUSE WE HAVE ONE, AND
IF HE HAD NOT DETERMINED TO DO THAT, WE
WOULD NOT HAVE SUCH. MIRACLES IN AMERICAN
HISTORY VOLUME 2, THE FAITH THAT SHAPED THE
NATION, BRINGS OUT HOW IN TIMES OF CRISES PEOPLE
TURN TO CHRIST AND IT’S IN TIMES OF CRISES THAT
GOD RAISES UP LEADERS. THAT’S NEXT WEEK TODAY’S PROGRAM IS
