Thank you. This is What's Right, What's Left with Pastor Ernie Sanders. Good evening and welcome to another edition of What's Right, What's Left on this 24th day of January 2023. And tonight we have courageous Craig it to hell ends with style you might say. And say hello fellas.
Hello. Is courageous there too? He's not. He's out about. He abandoned his post. He had to hit the town.
Oh okay. I'll tell you who would never ever abandon his post. Neither in his chopper or on his farm. Whether it was the helicopter or the tractor. Pastor Joe Larson, the parson Larson would never abandon his post.
Hey Joe. I'm still here. Good Lord willing.
No. Craig would never abandon his post. Probably doing something to keep you up. He's out there. He's keeping an eye on the enemy. That's what he's doing.
That's what he's doing. Anyhow Joe, we need to stay. We're starting a prayer tonight to make sure we can try to stay on the air. Okay.
So why don't you do that again and then I'm going to tell the folks how those folks in Denver, Portland, Little Rock, Atlanta, Orlando and Tampa, how they can still listen to us even though we go off the radio. Now I'm not sure if tonight's our last night there or if it's tomorrow night. This is the last night. I think it's tomorrow night. I'm not positive.
But I looked at my notes on Wednesday night as my notes say it's the last night. Alrighty. And were you in the prayer request, were you referring to the problem the station was having last night, the callers couldn't hear on that? Yeah, I'm referring to the problems that only occur when we're on the air.
They only occur, and I've heard that by more of the people that the board operator is saying, we run good all day long, never a problem until you come on the air. Okay. And, well, that's what we expect, but we know what our job is. And the Bible says we're to be the watchmen, we're to warn the righteous and the wicked, and that's what we're here to do and to educate, to inform, and to bring them the Word of God and the salvation message. No word did God say that everybody was going to be happy with us, right?
Right. Well, you know you're over the target when you're getting the flak, right? Flak, amen. And I'd be happy to pray. And folks, you loyal listeners out there, join me in prayer.
There's much, much power when many voices are raised to the Lord. Dear Heavenly Father, you've heard Pastor Ernie explain the situation quite well. All day things seem to work well at the station, we're on the air, and there are also all kinds of problems crop up, and stations go dark, and there's scrabbling in the air.
We have, I can't even think of the technical terms, but too many things go wrong that's coincidence. And we know the enemy would like to see us silenced, and we would just ask you to give us that hedge of protection that we wouldn't have any stations go down, that your message would be delivered loud and clear, Lord, and that Pastor Ernie and I would do Thy will and speak and teach that which you would have us do. And we just ask you to watch over everyone there at the studio at the station, and enable them to do what they're supposed to do. And we just ask this in Jesus' name. Amen. Thanks, Joe. All right, we got to get right into the Scripture.
We have so much to cover tonight, and we got to get after it. So tonight, remember the title was, well, Sunday, Joe, was America's was 50 years to the very day last Sunday, the 22nd of January, was America's darkest, darkest hour. It was America's darkest hour. That's when some wicked, ungodly, evil men proclaimed themselves to be God, and they said, we will take what God has made unlawful, and that is the transgression of His dominion, and we will make it legal by license, if you purchase a license with mammon. That's what these wicked, evil, ungodly men did.
And you had a wicked, evil, ungodly media that was pushing it, and they pushed for, and you had such things as the whoredom of feminism, another one of the most wicked, evil things that ever happened to America, and so brought so many curses on this country because of what these wicked people have done. And so that's what the title of the message was, and we're going to pick it up because that's what we're preaching on in Proverbs. And we know that that comes from Genesis 1 and verse 26, and God said, Let us, that's Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, make man in our image, after our likeness. And we know that Satan is out to what? Destroy the image of God, right?
Absolutely, and we're, as we go through this, And all these other things do, is they kill that image of God. Well, when we go through, we'll take a look and we finish with the divine institution of human government, what God gave us, and we see what God's judgment is on what they did. And so right now, see there's a mindset right now, all of these women that are taking the kill pill, there's a mindset that they're not really guilty because the baby is not really, is still very, very young, and therefore, you know, everybody's doing it, therefore it's legal.
Well, guess what, Joe? Those women, according to the word of God, those women that take that kill pill, the RU 486 or the other one, according to God's word, they deserve to die. According to the word of God, they deserve to die. Now, a lot of them will, a lot of them will take that pill and they will die from it, but according, but they've got no reason to complain, because according to God, now their argument's not with you and I, okay, but according to the word of God, what they're doing. Now, if only the pastors in this country had the guts, only if you do, only if you do, to stand up and really boldly and warn these women, don't you understand what you're doing here?
You know what, they wouldn't do so many. I had a Presbyterian preacher one time tell me, he said, Brother Sanders, I, I agree with everything you're preaching. I listen to you all the time on the radio and I agree with what you're doing.
You know, you have to understand something. I could not preach that way in my church. I could not preach that message.
I have so many women in my church that have had abortions, that if I were to preach that message, I would offend them. And I asked him, I said, let me ask you something. If you had been preaching against this horrible, horrible sin, do you think maybe you wouldn't have so many women in your church that had committed that horrible sin? And he paused for a minute and he had this strange look on his face and he says, I never thought, I never thought of it that way.
He said, you're right. More than that, he needed to go right to that church and preach that message. And then immediately after preaching that message, say, there is one way to escape your death sentence. And that is to go to the Lord and repent of your sin. Understand what you've done. Understand what the Lord thinks of what you did and truly repent and ask and beg for forgiveness. And if he truly loved his congregation, he would want them to be first convicted that they are sinners and then convict him that they need Jesus more than ever, that they need to be saved and only he can forgive those sins. That was his second big mistake is not seeing the opportunity to save a large portion of his congregation from going to hell. Right.
Absolutely. And you know, I actually had mistakes here in northeast Ohio, here in northeast Ohio some years ago. And what is called the Baptist Church, what is referred to as the Baptist Church, Joe, I was actually asked by the pastor if I would come and preach a message on abortion. And he said, Pastor Sanders, I'm sorry, forgive me, I just don't have the courage to do it. He said that the church is filled with Democrats and I'm sorry, but he said if you would do it, they need to hear that message that you preach and I'm sorry, but I just don't have the courage. And I said, don't apologize to me, it's God you're offending.
It's God. And I did. I went out there. And Joe, when I went out there, I was met by their two deacons at the door to tell me, we just wanted to let you know that we're all Democrats in here. And we know, we've heard you on the radio. I told them, I said, boy, am I glad you told me that, you know. I let them have it. Heaven's sweet, hell hot on the sin, the murder of children.
And Joe. I thought that warning would back you off, right? Well, what happened, one of those deacons that warned me that they were all Democrats, when I was preaching that message on the fires of hell and right from the word of God, we turned it right to the word of God and one of those deacons actually fell out into the aisle crying. And so it wasn't me, it was God's word.
It's God's word that does the convicting. We're just the messengers. That's all we are is the messengers.
Don't ever give yourself more credit than you deserve. It's God's word that doesn't return void. Not us, but our job is.
Scripture makes it clear, without the Holy Spirit, we can do without God, we can do nothing. Absolutely. Well, we better pick, we better get into the message. And we're starting tonight in Proverbs 28 verses 1 and 2.
Okay. The wicked flee when no man pursueth, but the righteous are bold as a lion. For the transgression of the land are many are the princes thereof, but by a man of understanding and knowledge, the state thereof shall be prolonged. Okay, let me ask you a question. What is a very, very good example in the word of God where we see the wicked fleeing when no man was pursuing?
It's a classic story. It's Gideon. When Gideon and his, and it's 300, when Gideon is 300, when they went up against thousands, I mean tens of thousands, I believe if I remember right it was almost 50,000. Yeah, it was something like 46, 48.
Yeah, it was a huge number. Right. And what they did is they just did what God told them to do, and you only had 300 men, and they sent them, what they did is they got up on the ridge where the enemy had camped in the valley, and at night time they all had a lantern, and they had a clay pot, a clay pitcher, and when they were given the signal, they would hold their lanterns up, and when they gave the signal, they broke the clay pitcher, and what was the significance of that?
I remember I was thinking they also yelled something, the sword of the Lord. Yeah. All right, Joe, back in those days, for every lantern, when they marched, when they went to war at night, a lantern, you usually had one lantern for either a platoon or sometimes a company of men, one lantern. Oh, okay. So when they saw these 300 lanterns, they didn't think of 300 men, they thought more of 300 platoons of men, right? Yeah. And the breaking, the breaking of the clay pitchers sounded like the clanging of armor. Oh. And so, so now you picture that the enemies down there, you know, 40 something thousand, they look up and they see they're surrounded here, these lanterns, they're not thinking of 300 men, they're thinking more of 30,000 men, and so the ones taken by surprise, and then they hear the breaking of the noise, and that noise puts them in confusion.
And so those, the enemies that were on that end of the valley, they ran away from the lanterns, and same with the enemies on the other end of the valley, they ran towards the middle of the camp, and in their confusion, they ran into each other and fought each other. And so, God's pretty wise, isn't he? Extremely. All he knows are every weakness. And so here now, when it says, for the transgression of the land are many, are the princes. The word princes there, Joe, is the same as what we call legislators. Legislators. Do you think, do you think the legislators we have in our government have made many, many, many transgressions?
Oh, yes, and they keep doing worse all the time. I just, I remember Gerald, oh, the Congressman, I'm having one of my senior moments right now, the one that said that God has no voice in Congress, Nadler, Jared Nadler, Jerry Nadler, yeah, Jerry Nadler, he said, God has no voice here in the halls of Congress. You think God may take issue with that?
I think God just laughs. And so here, it says this, but it says here, many are, for the transgressions of the land are many, are the princes thereof, but, now listen to this, but, by a man of understanding and knowledge, the state thereof shall be prolonged. Did we have a man of understanding and knowledge in office until the deep state, until the very, very corrupt, and I mean extremely and completely and totally corrupt, anti-Christ deep state brought him out?
Well, he sure did. And so here, the name was Donald J. Trump, that's why they had to get rid of him, because he was that man. And now, we have, we still have today in Congress, we have people like Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, et cetera, they're good examples of men of understanding and knowledge, are they not?
They are. All right, let's go over to Psalm 9. Let's go over to Psalm 9, and in Psalm 9, read me verses 16 and 17. The Lord is known by the judgment which he executed, the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.
Begin, sala, the wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. Well, you think America, since that dark day, since that dark day, January 22nd, 1973, since that dark day, has America been going, being reduced more and more and falling more and more every day? Yes, because every day that number of children go up, euthanages go up, and more lives have been taken by abortion than all the wars and conflicts this nation's been in. That was even, you know, from Roe v. Wade on. Okay, well, let me ask you this. Do you remember what happened in 2012 at the Democratic, the convention, when they voted God out by a voice vote?
They voted him out by a voice vote. And so here. They got in the way of all the stuff they wanted to do, you know?
Yeah. The ungodliness, I mean, the Democratic party is completely corrupt. There's nothing about it, nothing, not a thing about it, and no Democrats left within it that are not corrupted. And so here, he goes here, the wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. What do you think the fools at the World Economic Forum have in that big party where they're bringing in, they're having that meeting over there on climate, and they're importing in world-class prostitutes, world-class prostitutes to come in there for their entertainment? Do you think, now these are the very same people that just recently come out and said, there is no God in heaven, and no Jesus living above the clouds is going to come back to earth. There is no God. Man will be God, okay? Now would you consider those people to be fools?
Extreme fools, and one day they will be, they'd use the term shock and awe, they will experience what that really truly means when they realize how wrong they were. Every single day in this country, in this world, fools die. Every single day in this country, fools die and go to hell. But God lives forever, doesn't he? Forever and ever and ever.
There is no end. Was there any skeleton in Jesus' closet? No sin. Nope. And so America has forgotten and forsaken her God, expelled him from the public school system. Do you remember that? Oh yes, they kicked him out a long time ago. In fact, it was, it just reminds me of Alexander Solzhenitsyn when they asked him what happened in his beloved Russia, and he said, well, all the old-timers have a saying, this nation has forgotten God. That's why this has happened.
Absolutely. It's happened before to other countries, other nations, and the answer was they forgot God, and that's what's wrong with America today. There's a nation that's forgotten its God, and it's going downhill because of it. Well, why don't you turn over to Psalm 33 and read me verses 12 through 15. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. The Lord looketh from heaven. He beholdeth all the sons of men. From the place of his habitation, he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth. He fashioned their hearts alike. He considerth all their works. There is no king saved by the multitude of a host. A mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
Okay, I think you got the wrong one. That's Psalm 33 verses 12 through 15. Psalm 33. Yeah. Okay. Psalm 33. Yeah.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. Alrighty. Okay. Somewhere I was hearing something different.
Okay. So blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. And so who are they? Who are the people that God has chosen for his own inheritance? All those who become his children, those born-again believers.
Alright. The Lord looketh from heaven. Beholdeth all the sons of men.
From the place of habitation, he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth. Now, this nation was born of God. Was this nation blessed in so many ways? Oh, was it ever blessed. It was blessed like Israel was blessed with a promised land. We were given a promised land and those who settle it came with seeking freedom to worship God.
And so Joe. This became the Christian holy land. When the nation fought for its independence, remember George Washington had an army of five hundred men to begin with going up against an army of fifty-five thousand. The British army that they were bringing.
Fifty-five thousand. Now, here and yet God blessed them in so many different ways and he had blessed the spirit of the American people. Were they, who led that war for independence?
Who was it? That would have been the Lord, really. Well, it was called the Black Robe Regiment. Yeah, he used the, you know, because most of the commanders of the militias were pastors of the Black Robe Regiment. They absolutely were because they understood that God's word the Bible taught from Genesis to Revelation that the resistance to tyranny was obedience to God, huh? Right, exactly. And so the tyranny, especially when it came down that the king wanted to tell them what they could preach and what they couldn't and that was when the pastors really rebelled because no one tells God, you know, they were to tell, give God's message loud and clear and not listen to the laws of man.
Absolutely. But today, because America has forsaken her God, she is cursed in so many ways. Abortion, adultery, pornography, divorce, pedophilia, rape, murder, sodomy, corrupt government, election fraud, feminism, transgression, gender perversion, wokeness, BLM, Planned Parenthood, antifa, and murder in the streets because America... And the first of it is who is really taking the blunt, the brunt of all of this is the children and I can't remember the chapter and verse but God said I'll not only forget thee but I will forget thy children.
The children are the ones and the parents watching their children and grandchildren suffer is some of the worst punishment you can have. Yep, Hosea 4-6 is the verse you're thinking of. Alright, we'll be back right after this. He was born of Elizabeth, the son of Zachariah, sent by God the Father to proclaim the Messiah. He was as bold as a lion, he knew no fear.
An awesome man, a coat of camel hair. Big Baptist John. In the wilderness of Judea you could hear him there, he was preaching repentance, it was very loud and clear.
O generation of vipers who have warned you to flee from the wrath to come, better listen Pharisee. He preached to the sinner, the thief and the liar, only one way out of that burning lake of fire, the truth thundered forth from this righteous man and those that believed found the promised land. Big Baptist John. Chosen by the Father to baptize the Son, it was there in the Jordan, this awesome thing was done. The Holy Ghost ascended as if it were a dove, a mighty voice thundered from heaven above.
This is my son in whom I am well pleased. John his friend, none greater than he, he told all the people about God the Son, he never quit preaching till the job was done. Big Baptist John.
Now 2,000 years later the story is still being told, how he was thrown into prison for being so bold, he was martyred for God, to him it was an honor, he earned himself a mansion, heaven way out yonder. Big John. Now John's enemies they perished in the shame, but John took his place in the Saint's Hall of Fame. Now in heaven above the angels understood, when John preached repentance, he sure did it good, Baptist John.
Now there's one thing John wants you to know, it's a fearful matter to lose your own soul, to call upon the Lord while you still can, and better take the advice of this mighty righteous man. Big John. Big John. Big Baptist John. Big John. Big Baptist John. Big John. Big Baptist John. Big Baptist John. Alright we're back and you know it seemed like it was, you know it shows you how fast time is passing Joe, it seemed like it was just yesterday I wrote and recorded that song and yet it's probably been over 20 years.
In fact I think it's been 23 or 24 years ago, I'm not sure, but anyhow, folks for you folks whether or not this is the last night or tomorrow is the last night, let me just tell you some of the things you can do. One, get the newsletter. If you haven't got the newsletter, write for the newsletter, call whatever you have to, but get the newsletter, and Joe give them the address. That address is WRWL, that's all you need, 14781 14781 Sperry Road, S-P-E-R-R-Y Road, Newberry, N-E-W-B-U-R-Y, Ohio, 44065.
WRWL Ministries, 14781 Sperry Road, Newberry, Ohio, 44065, and if you're driving down the road and you can't get that written down, just go to the website WRWL.org, WRWL.org, and it will be there for you. And if you're not on the internet, just call 440-338-1367. Try to remember that if you are driving down the road, 440-338-1367, and get the newsletter. Now here's why. First of all, we'll keep you informed. We send out things, and you folks who get the newsletter know that the articles and the information we send you is exactly what the Deep State does not want you to know.
And so you'll know that. And number two, you'll have a return envelope. All you folks in the Denver, the Portland, the Little Rock, the Atlanta, the Orlando, the Tampa, all of you folks out there, it will make it easier for you to get us back on. Our goal is to be back on in your area by May 1st. And if you get that and you help and maybe encourage some of the churches in your area, we do get support from a number of churches to help us. The more money comes in from your area, the quicker we'll be back on.
Our goal is to try to be back on in your area by May 1st, hopefully. Now, other ways you can still listen to us, you can go to thewordcleveland.com, or you can get an app if you have a smartphone. That's the podcast, yeah, thewordcleveland.com. You can hear the program.
I think, what, they archive it for seven days, I believe. Or you can go to, you can get, if you have a smartphone, you can get an app, WHKW1220 or 96.9 FM, that's WHK1220, WHKW1220 or WHKW96.9 FM. Or you can go to iHeartRadio, you can go to TuneInRadio or Audacy, that's Audacy, A-U-D-A-C-Y, or those are several other ways you can still listen to us.
And so, or, one other way, too, is we have a number of stations that cross each other, and so they cross several states because we're on a number of 50,000 watt stations, and sometimes they'll cover many states, and you can just go on the dial and tune and try to find out whatever state, you know, is coming into your area. Those are the ways, and I'm hoping that we can, we really never wanted to go out. We did everything we can, Joe, didn't we do all that we could to keep from going off on those stations? Stuck our neck out a half a mile, yes.
Yeah, we did. And so, anyhow, folks, there you go with that. Joe, I'm going to do a little clip here. On January 10th, really, Joe-bama Biden, the fellow who's working for his boss, the Chinese Communist Party, he did a really evil, wicked thing to America, you know, just one of the many that he's done. And so, go ahead and play that clip. This will probably be one of the most important videos I've ever put out. Did you know that the United States of America as you know it no longer exists?
And I don't mean this theoretically. I mean this as in on January 10th, 2023, while no one was paying attention, Joe Biden signed away our sovereignty as a nation when he met with President of Mexico, Manuel Lopez Obrador, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Mexico City to sign the Declaration of North America. You can find the release on the White House website, wh.gov, which ironically right now has a photo on the front page of these three individuals I just mentioned. I'm sure once this goes out to the masses, they will reconsider being so obvious and bragging about what they've done. They've completed what their plan has always been, the North American Union, a declaration separate and outside of the Constitution. Their intentions have been to further give away American interests to organizations like the World Health Organization.
It is what some people call globalism, a single market, a single regulator, a single currency, a one world government. It is critical that people in uniform, including law enforcement and military, understand that they are no longer employed by the United States of America. They're becoming mercenaries, working for a non-sovereign who is paying them to control us and stop us from securing our rights, freedoms, and borders. Unfortunately, they know that only a small number of Americans will read the Declaration, yet it spells out their intent of the role of government in all of our lives.
Maybe I will read it to you in a future video, but here are some things that you need to consider. One, if you have no country, what rights do you have and how does one assert them? Two, what does the oath of office mean if your country no longer exists? Three, if you're fighting for your country and your country no longer exists, who are you fighting for? Four, if selected, non-elected people are making policy that destroys our country, then how and why are we supporting their efforts?
Five, who are we paying taxes to and why? Six, if you're abiding laws that never went through the legitimate process of lawmaking like this Declaration, then what are you really doing? Seven, if there are people that can take our livelihood through arbitrary rule like COVID lockdowns, then what else can they take from us? Eight, if you were coerced, fooled, or forced to take the genuitating agents, what rights did you have? Nine, what rights do we have now and moving forward? Ten, what are we going to do about it?
I can assure you that if you succumb to and abide by the replacement of a highly portable and recognized medium of exchange, i.e. cash, with central bank issued digital currency, then you will lose any ability whatsoever to control any single facet of life other than its end. How do we protect ourselves, our families, humanity, and its future from what is to come? The next plandemic is already in the works.
How will you respond? Their motto is order from chaos. Please think carefully about not falling into the trap they've set awaiting prey.
This is extremely troubling and there is no help on the way. We must work together to save ourselves. We must work together to safeguard the American dream, the constitution, our freedoms, and our future by ensuring the resilience and security of our republic.
We must leverage us, the American people, our involvement, experience, expertise, our community leaders, governors, and elected and non-elected public servants. We can no longer ignore social, moral, and political collapse occurring right in front of us. Believe what you see, not what you hear. We must move our political discourse from the emotional to the logical and practical to resolve the subversion of our republic via our own systems, education, governance, justice, and national security. I will continue to put out more information about this, but keep seeking truth. Don't get distracted.
Nothing else will matter if they take everything away from us. Keep being vocal. We've been silent for way too long. We must work together to help restore America.
Thanks for listening. Joe, I had one, one lady in particular that got so upset at what you just heard that she got so upset and she started going into kind of a rage telling me what we have to do this. We have to, in other words, like, it was almost like it was my fault or that Biden is selling us out.
And she said, why, why, why aren't you upset about this? And here's why, Joe, I don't, I don't give them any legitimacy. I, I, I have, I do not recognize Joe Biden as being at holding any legitimate office. I don't recognize the deep state.
I do. I no longer recognize the FBI as being a legitimate intelligence agency. They have lost the trust. Uh, they, they have broken, they have broken the contract, they've broken with the people. And so I don't recognize them.
I don't have no intentions and abiding by any of the legislation or whatever they pass because they are, they have no legitimacy anymore. And so here, uh, that's why I didn't get all excited. Like this lady who's jumping up and down and always telling me what, you know, the whole idea is every time they say we have to do this, we have to do that. They're always meaning me.
You see the two, uh, I spell we, w e, they spell we m e me. Okay. In other words, they always bring these things and say, you know, what are you going to do about it? You say, no, no, there's an old saying, whatever I can do, I should do.
What does it say? James one 22 be you a doer of the word, not a hearer only. Right. And so somehow this idea is that, uh, the, the few of us out there that are doing things, the few of us, you know, somehow all, everything's our responsibility and it's not all our responsibility.
Everybody needs to do their share. Don't they, Joe? Joe, are you there?
Did we lose Joe? Hello. Okay. I guess.
I don't know if we're still in the air or not. Okay. Okay. So we are. Okay.
You don't know. Well, anyhow, it looks like we lost Joe. I'm going to go, uh, see if we can, if he, I wonder if he realizes he's disconnected.
I would imagine he did. Okay. He's calling back.
Let me see what he'll be coming back in these things. Okay. You're back. All right.
You probably missed all of our lines, phone lines out here are all down. Okay. All right.
So, but, uh, but we're not done around the country as far as then we're still up on the air everywhere. Yeah. Yeah.
He says we're still good. Okay. Now I'm going to be, uh, reading an article here. You probably missed, did you miss the whole, that, that whole, uh, clip that we just played? Yeah. I didn't hear anything.
Okay. Well, we're going to go, I'm going to go to an article here and it's called losing their religion while U S churches are on the decline. And it's an article by Adam Gabbitt and it says, churches are closing rapidly in numbers in the U S research to see as congregations dwindle across the country, the younger generation of America abandoned Christianity altogether, even as faith continues to dominate American politics as the U S adjust to an increasingly non-religious population. Thousands of churches are closing each year in the country.
A figure that experts may believe have accelerated since the COVID-19 pandemic. You don't suppose that was all planned to you, Joe. Uh, we know it was planned.
Well, it was, uh, an attack. I, you know, the situation means that some hard decisions for pastors who have to decide when a dwindling congregation is no longer sustainable, but it also created a boom market for those wanting to buy churches with former houses of worship. Now finding a new life about 4,500 Protestant churches closed in 2019. Uh, that last year data is available with about 3000 new churches opening. Now, as far as I know, hardly any Baptist churches and see Baptists are not Protestant.
People don't understand. Uh, there's a, there's a major different Baptist, actual Baptist, probably 90% of what have Baptist in their name are not Baptist at all. They're Protestant, but actual bad.
Yeah. Uh, and Michael Luther made the great reformation. He was trying to get the unregistered Baptist to join him and they said, why we've never been part of the great or the Roman Catholic church. We don't have to depart from it because we were never part of it.
And he was kind of a little flustered by that, but, uh, that goes back a long way. The true Baptists were never part, never joined the Catholic church at all. They go all the way back to John, the Baptist. Well, in fact, it was the opposite. They came out from us. This is, it's what it tells you over there for Genesis. They came out from us, but they were never part of us. Had they been part of it, they would have stayed with us.
Okay. And so here, and we're talking about actual true Baptist is not a denomination. It's actually a doctrine, Hebrews five and six anyhow. So he goes on and he says here, uh, it was the first time in a number of churches in the U S hadn't grown since the, uh, evangelical firms started studying the topic with the pandemic speeding up a broader trend of Americans turning away from Christianity. Researchers say the closures will only have accelerated. Now the closures, even for a temporary period of time impacted a lot of churches. People breaking the habit of attending churches means a lot of churches had to work hard to get people back to attending again, said Scott McConnell. Now, Joe, why was it Joe? Why was it that when they closed these churches down and then they went to reopen them, uh, people didn't come back. Well, why was that?
I tell you why. Some were, some were out of habit. Some, uh, found other things to do with their Sunday morning. They filled their times with things that weren't, uh, scriptural weren't godly and, uh, they're just easier falling away.
Well, I'll tell you what you do. The Bible explains it very clearly. Go to job 38 and read me verses 19 and 20 job 38 verses 19 to 20 20. Where is the way where light dwell it? And as for darkness, where is the place thereof? That thou shouldst take it to the bound thereof and that thou shouldst know the paths to the house thereof. All right. To the house of light.
All right. So what is the house? The house of the house of God is what it's referring to there.
The house of God. Okay. Uh, in the early, uh, in the early said, do not forsake the gathering together. Right. Okay. In the early, in the early church, they called them church houses.
That's where people met in houses and they call them the church house. Okay. But, uh, go over here then and read Hebrews 10 25. Yeah. Together as the manner of some is that exhorting one another and so much the more as you see the day approaching. All right.
Keep waiting. For if we sin willfully, after knowing we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins. Okay.
Uh, let me see. I may have given you the wrong verse. Hebrews 10 25 is maybe my memory is not the best, but I believe in Hebrews 10 25 and that's not forsaking the assembly. Yeah.
It means we're supposed to come together no matter what. Yeah. Yeah. That part is right.
Maybe the next verse is the one year. Yeah. Uh, let me see.
Go read the, read the next verse that maybe I got off by versa. Let's start a certain. Okay. Here you go. Here.
Hebrews Hebrews 10 25 not forsaking the assembly of ourselves together as the manner of some is, but exhorting one another and so much the more as you see the day approaching. Okay. So that's what I read. Okay. I'm telling you something very strange is happening tonight because I don't know. It's, I'm not getting, I'm getting something else here. Uh, you're hearing something. I'm not reading.
I'm reading what you tell me and you're hearing something else. Yeah. Well, we're up against powers and principalities, aren't we?
But, um, anyhow, so first time, so stay with us. Yeah. Not forsaking the assembly of yourselves together. So now here, all of the UBF churches, all of the, uh, UBF churches, they stayed open. Okay. See, we, we obeyed God rather than man. We always say, man said, the state said, close down. God says, no, not forsaking the assembly. Don't close down.
Okay. And Job, he talks about keeping the boundaries and meaning going to the house of light. And so here, so we stayed open.
We never closed on that day. The world went dark. Where was the light in the churches? That's where the light was. That's exactly right. And, uh, of course in Canada and even in this country, we had a number of churches that came under attack because they refused to obey the corrupt state.
Many of those churches, so-called churches that wanted to, they wanted to obey Caesar, obey man rather than God. So they closed their doors and many of them never reopened. Okay. Because of that, because, uh, all the light left there, huh? Yeah.
When you're away from the light, what is there left? That will take over, right? Absolutely. And so anyhow, there you go. God's word does not return void. Does it?
No, it doesn't. Then the second thing in this article, it talked about a lot of the young people, uh, a quarter of the young people that dropped out. So the church disagreed. They disagreed to their church's stance on political and social issues. Well, people sent their children to the public full system. And the first thing the public full system did is turn them away from God. You know, that religion is a myth and all the mythological stories of Adam and Eve, you know, and all that. And then they start feeding them the anti-Christ system, the communist ideology, Marxism.
And then, uh, the parents seem so shocked when the children leave the church and don't come back. You're absolutely right. And I praise the good Lord that in Florida, governor DeSantis is doing something about that. And we need every single state needs to do what he's doing in Florida there. And this is why I gave out the numbers of the, your Congressman and senators yesterday to call them folks and just say, look, we want the same. We want our state to pass the same legislation that governor DeSantis is passing to Florida. He's going after the stinking teachers union, the corrupt, corrupt, corrupt, corrupt, corrupt teachers union. He's going after them.
He's, he's pulling that critical race theory. Uh, that's, that's going to be a crime to teach that in Florida. Here in Ohio recently, uh, we, I played a clip of some of these teachers that didn't realize who they were talking to. And we're talking about how they, they're just going to trick. We have our little tricks and we're going to trick the people in Ohio. They're not going to know that we're teaching their children critical race theory.
Okay. Uh, for years you and I have been warning people about the education system and they'd been using those little tricks going way back to starting in the seventies. But there's somebody else we need to add there with, uh, the good governor. And that's the governor, uh, Kim Reynolds in Iowa. In fact, today she signed a historic school choice bill. We will fund students, not systems. It's the third state pass school choice that it goes to every child. The money goes to the child.
The parents can decide where they want to take the money and put the child, whether it's a private school, Christian school, whatever the money goes with the child, not to the government school. All right, Joe, we're coming up to a break. Then when we come back from the break, I'm going to play a little clip from, uh, Steve Bannon and cash Patel on Biden's docs. And this could be a very interesting, so we'll be back right after this. Don't go away.
