Paradigm Shift 2016: Brexit Times 50

Tank Man is the nickname of an unidentified man who stood in front of a column of tanks on June 5, 1989, the morning after the Chinese military had suppressed the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 by force. As the lead tank maneuvered to pass by the man, he repeatedly shifted his position in order to obstruct the tank’s attempted path around him. The incident was filmed and seen worldwide. More than 25 years after the incident, there is no reliable information about the identity or fate of the man.

11/8/16 began a new era in western history.

That date will live in notoriety similar to 9/11/2001 — the fall of the Berlin Wall and Tiananmen Square in 1989 — 11/22/63 — 12/7/41.

And so on.

Donald Trump predicted the 2016 election would be “Brexit times ten.”

I agree with that. Only this national populist phenomenon ought to be called, “Brexit times 50.”

These paradigm shifts take place exactly when they are meant to happen. It’s part of God’s plan for the progress of the Gospel in history. God brings the actual collapse of an order often with the destruction of a symbol in order to pave the way for His kingdom.

Think of the Handwriting on the Wall in Babylon 539 BC, the destruction of the Jewish Temple in AD 70, the Fall of the Roman Empire in AD 476, Luther’s 95 Theses in 1517. This shift might not seem as dramatic as any of those, but the 2016 election represents a destruction of a worldview that is the foundation of a political order. The overthrow of this worldview is still unfolding, but it is inevitable.

No one saw President Trump coming a year ago. No one foresaw the Twin Towers’ bombing, the Berlin Wall collapsing, the JFK assassination, Pearl Harbor … and on and on.

But it’s not Trump’s revolution. He was just the harbinger of judgment. The anger on the left is the same as the anger on the right. Feel the Bern? Sanders might have beaten Trump in the general election if the DNC had not fixed the primaries.

What’s the paradigm shift in 2016?

It’s no longer a divide between left and right. It’s now populism vs. the establishment.

Trump is the symbol.

If you know me at all, you know I am not a Trump supporter. But I do support what Trump symbolizes to a lot of people.

What does Trump symbolize and what is collapsing?

Western egalitarian humanism became the new religion of Europe and America in the past 30 years. It is now collapsing. Trump is the antithesis of that. Think about it.

Trump is Tank Man.

He had the audacity to stand up to both the Republican and Democrat machines. He foiled the experts by doing the opposite of how everyone around him thought a campaign should be run. But it could have been Sanders or any symbol of the populist rage against the establishment. In fact, the anti-Trump riots occurring in the wake of the election are a mirror image of the rage that got Trump elected.

I subscribe to the emails of several pro-abortion advocacy groups. A few weeks before the election they were saying that the Republicans might keep the Senate unless people donated to their organization. Trump was not even on their radar. They had no idea. Now Cecile Richards and all of the witches and pro-aborts are freaking out.

It doesn’t mean that we are going to end abortion in the next election cycle or even two. However, their religion is collapsing. Western collectivism is the foundation for the modern version of the ritual of human sacrifice. The individual is sacrificed for the collective. I believe it is a demonic force that hates the image of God in the Person in the womb, the weak and the elderly. And most of all, it hates the individuality that expresses the unique gifts, the light and truth of God in human beings.

When communism first entered Europe in 1917, one of the first laws that was passed was to liberalize abortion in the Soviet Union. Ever since then, socialism and communism has led to not only hundreds of millions of abortions but also the genocide of whole people groups and the oppression of Christians or anyone who would recognize a God who is greater than the state.

Soviet communism’s twin cousin is western egalitarian humanism. It is collapsing. The riots and hysteria you will see in the streets over the next few days, weeks and months is the evidence of that. God has robbed their faith. All they have ever had is their religious faith and it has been broken.

Into such unlikely upheavals, Revival and Spiritual Awakening takes place.

The Four Keys to the Millennium (Book)

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology

By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.

All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?

These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

Who is the Real Jesus?

Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.

Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.

The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.

Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!

Running Time: 130 minutes

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.
