I guess I sort of consider myself a “visionary.” No, I don’t mean I see “visions” or am I any sort of “prophet.” But I can see things as they are and envision what could be. I can look at a broken-down, ramshackle house or car and see how it can be brought back to life. I can see a yard with badly neglected landscaping and lawn and see the beauty that it could be. In the 1990s, I envisioned a Christian newspaper for Wisconsin — a virtually impossible feat to pull off, but the Lord God Himself told me to start one, and now our newspaper, Wisconsin Christian News is putting out more copies than ever before and it’s distributed nationally — not just for Wisconsin anymore. And I can also look upon a lost soul, consumed and deceived by worldly enticements and see a new creation in Christ, if only they’ll seek Him in humble repentance and faith.
In my life, I’ve also had some great ideas for things long before they existed. For example, I envisioned self-adhesive postage stamps at least ten years before they came out with them. The idea of satellite radio also came to me at least ten years before it was launched. Lately, I had another great idea that somebody, eventually, will make millions of dollars with. You know, they have landscaping mulch that’s infused with insect repellant. Why don’t they have mulch that’s infused with deer and rabbit repellant, so the animals don’t eat your flowers or your garden? Just remember, when it comes out, you heard it here first!
But there are also plenty of things I got wrong. When the beverage industry started marketing bottled water, I thought it was the craziest idea I ever heard of. Who, in their right mind, would want to buy bottled water? Water is free. But now, there are dozens upon dozens of brands of bottled water readily available from your local grocery or convenience store. They even have a brand called “Smart Water” — and you can get two bottles of that for only $4 dollars now. People are paying for it and drinking it. But apparently, not getting any smarter.
Speaking of “vision,” that’s really what it’s all about, isn’t it? Seeing what could be…if only… In 2020, we held our annual Wisconsin Christian News Conference and the theme that year was “2020 Vision.” My vision for that year was of a renewed, revitalized courageous Christian Church here in America — ready and willing to render their reasonable service as warriors in the spiritual battle that was raging against us all, especially our children and young people.
Boy, did I get that one wrong. During the 1990s and into the new century, the modern American Church began to rapidly descend down the drain to depravity. We had the “Purpose Driven” Church, then the “seeker friendly” Church, then the “Emergent” Church, then the “Social Justice” Church. All of these things were born of people with vision, but their vision was not inspired by the Holy Spirit, but rather by the enemy of our souls. Matthew 24:24, “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”
Yes, even long-time churchgoers jumped on the “love, love, love” bandwagon and began accepting all forms of ungodly stuff — in order to appear “loving,” “tolerant,” “accepting.” We were told that Jesus loves everyone, just as they are…a sprinkle of truth mixed in with a pound of lies. What we’ve ended up with is a Socialist Church, or dare I say even a Communist Church. The Holy Spirit has now, sadly, departed from most of these places. It’s very, very difficult to find a real Bible-believing, truth-teaching assembly of believers where the Holy Spirit really does dwell.
Instead, we have a carnival atmosphere. Sermons designed to tickle the itching ears of unrepentant and unsaved sinners as they’re told nothing about true salvation, nothing about the blood of the Lamb, shed for our redemption, nothing about being transformed by the renewing of our minds. Instead, the pulpiteers have been brainwashing the minds of the clueless victims they preach to with a “different Gospel” that Scripture tells us to flee from.
It was in the late ‘90s and early 2000s that the monstrosity that has become the modern LGBTQP+ movement “came out of the closet” and got right in all of our faces, demanding we not just accept sodomy as natural and normal, but we must also celebrate it, we must also teach it to our young children. We must embrace it. Because, after all, as many modern preachers will tell you, “Love is love.” And as that demonic sodomite monster came out of the closet in earnest, the American Church meekly retreated into that very same closet.
We warned of a “slippery slope” of the many false teachings and the paths the churches were taking. But in 2020, I really thought enough people were waking up to the reality of the errors of their ways and God’s remnant Church would rise up, reject the lies and deception, and join the spiritual battle against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
I was wrong. Our “2020 Vision” Conference was held on “lockdown weekend,” and it was the last large public gathering of any kind that entire year and beyond anywhere in the country. That was the weekend the big announcement came: “Just two weeks to flatten the curve.” Non-essential businesses — like Churches — were forced by the government to close their doors. No meetings or gatherings, not even in our own homes. Wear the masks. Wear rubber gloves, stay six feet apart from others. Follow the arrows on the floor when you go to “essential” businesses like Walmart and Target. Bow down to Big Pharma. Worship the “science” of Fauci and company.
My “vision” for 2020 was so different — and things could have gone so differently — IF the Church had risen up. IF the Church had done the job of the Church and the work of the ministry. IF the pastors had even an ounce of courage. Only a very few did, and they were severely persecuted. Just like the many doctors, nurses and scientists who dared to speak the truth and say, “wait a minute. Something’s not right here. We’re being lied to.” But most Americans and people around the world complied out of cowardice.
I remember people who refused to wear the masks and live in fear being confronted — sometimes violently — by law enforcement or even store employees. At one home improvement store chain, they actually hired armed guards to ensure no one enter the store without a face mask. If you didn’t have one, they would sell you one. If you didn’t comply, you were arrested by police and charged with trespassing.
I remember some pastors trying to appease the government and health officials, yet still hold services. They’d stand at the doorway of their church buildings and preach to people in their cars, the cars parked six feet apart. Those pastors were arrested and the people in the cars were given stiff fines just for being there. I remember people walking on deserted beaches in the summertime and being arrested for not wearing their masks — again, on deserted beaches, on sunny days in 90-degree heat. I never envisioned such things could be possible in the so-called “land of the free and home of the brave.” But of course, America was no longer free and our people no longer brave. People were cowering in fear that someone would verbally or physically attack them if they went anywhere without a mask.
For some, hindsight is 20/20, but for many, it’s too late. Despite desperate warnings from credible scientists and doctors, who risked everything — and many lost everything — millions took the “jab.” And now, just as they — and we — told you, millions are dying suddenly from this “injecticide” that most of the world’s population lined up to take and take again and then get “boosted” with again, just to be sure.
But from the start, it was all about our vision. It was all about what we saw with our eyes. All about the optics. It began about December of 2019, when images of people falling over dead in the streets of China from this horrific, deadly virus known as ‘COVID.’ Anyone with common sense knows that a country like China, that censors virtually everything, would never allow any negative video footage like this to be released — unless they wanted it released. It was purposely released to scare people to death, and those images continued to be broadcast by their comrades in the mainstream media around the world until the appointed time in March of 2020, and then people were prepped, primed and ready to follow any and all orders imposed upon them.
Anyone who dared question the so-called “science” was vilified in the press, censored from the internet, ostracized from friends and family, and some were even jailed for speaking truth. And so speaking truth actually became a crime and those who believed the truth became “crazy conspiracy nuts.” That’s still going on today, and people are still wearing their masks today, believe it or not.
But it was all about the optics. It was all a big theater show and we were the guinea pigs for this globalist experiment. The masks were simply a visual reminder to us that we needed to remember to be afraid. And that’s the only purpose they ever served. And the sad part is, the experiment continues, with the WHO now warning that a much more deadly pestilence will be popping up in the months ahead so we must continue to remain fearful and we must all be ready to obediently comply with whatever nonsense they decide to force upon us.
Friends, we need to understand that just about everything we hear from the government and media is a lie. It’s all just a big theater show. Isaiah 59:14, “Justice is driven back, and righteousness stands at a distance. Truth has fallen in the streets and honesty cannot enter.” There you have it.
Today, we have no justice in this country. Just ask anyone who was in Washington DC on January 6 of 2021…. or the citizens of East Palestine, Ohio. Or any of the owners of the hundreds of food processing plants that have been tactically (and mysteriously) destroyed in the last couple years. And as Deuteronomy 28:43 tells us, “The foreigners among you will rise above you higher and higher, but you will sink lower and lower.”
Even well-meaning Christ-followers are timid now, too afraid for their lives to dare speak truth and wisdom, and so righteousness stands at a distance. Nothing you hear on the so-called “news” can be trusted and if you don’t toe the party line you’re not allowed to speak. Ask any conservative speaker who’s attempted to give a lecture at any university or college about the natural biology of “male” and “female.” Honesty is not allowed to enter. In fact, if honesty does try to enter a college or high school campus, it’s shouted down, physically attacked, and driven out by hordes of useful Leftist idiots.
We’ve been warning of the border crisis, and the millions of single, military-age Chinese men entering at our southern border and then being resettled throughout our nation. In many of those areas, video footage is not allowed to be taken. Our Communist government forbids you to see what’s going on. We only see what they want us to see. We only “know” what they want us to know. So most only believe what our so-called “leaders” want us to believe.
Let me finish with this: when I was about 16 years old, I had a series of dreams for about two weeks in a row. The dreams were not all exactly alike, but all were similar. The one consistent element of those dreams was the sight of Chinese tanks rolling down the main street of the small town I grew up in. Maybe those were just dreams. Maybe they meant nothing. Or maybe they really were visions as God showed me what yet to come in my lifetime. I don’t know, but now that I’m old and things are playing out as they are, those dreams I had as a teenager are starting to haunt me.
