A Word For This Season

This week I’ve seen Alex Jones being pulled off the air, five out of six Trump backed candidates win their key elections, and seven out of seven extreme left, Sanders people losing theirs!

I feel the Lord say ‘The season is ending’. Next week I’m running a sold out conference at the Trump Hotel where I’ll spend some time talking about these changing seasons and what the Lord wants you to hear in your next season. You can get in on that at: lancewallnau.com/livestream

  1. Lance,

    I really enjoy your messages and this is one of your best. I actually find myself more bothered by “Christian” culture than I am about secular culture since I find myself seeing most of Christian culture as secular culture with a few Christian buzzwords thrown in about salvation, atonement, healing, prosperity, etc. I will try to illustrate my point from my own experience and hope that people take it in the right spirit. I have a Ph.D. in Comparative literature from a major university, an accomplishment that, from my experience in the Christian community, is viewed more as an oddity than as a resource or an achievement that young people should emulate. My doctoral dissertation dealt with translation theory, not how to translate but an attempt to understand the underlying meaning and significance of translation. A major portion of it dealt with Bible translation including Greek, Latin and Hebrew (modern and classical) and other languages as well. There was one major problem with my dissertation, however, which prevented my jurors, half of whom were Christians, from really understanding what I was saying and that was that I believe that the story of the tower of Babel is literally true, not just metaphorical. Translation did not exist before the tower of Babel and there is a reason that God needed to create translation. Since I was a white, middle-aged man when I graduated, it was virtually impossible to find an academic job, whether in a Christian or secular university, although I was able to do some teaching. My biggest problem as a teacher in a university, however, was that I was always attempting to get my students to read classic literature through something other than the lens of modern feminism or political correctness in general. This was virtually impossible with most students, Christian or not, because they had already been taught how a text was supposed to be read. Example: Plato’s Symposium. Academics love this book because it show how much ancient Greeks embraced homosexuality. On the other hand, if you read this text within historical context, Plato is saying the exact opposite. This attitude on my part, however, did not help me to retain a job in a well known Christian university. I am saying these things not to promote myself or alleviate bitterness – it is simply reality and I choose to live in the present. I think it would be great for more Christians to take their place in modern culture but if they continue to think like the world, nothing will really change. When churches begin valuing intellectual achievement among their young people as much or more than musical talent and sports awards, or when Christians start encouraging their children to become professors of literature and humanities, I will begin to believe that a real change is taking place. I still remember with embarassment the aspiring pastor in my beginning classical Greek course who dropped out with the excuse that all he wanted was to know koine Greek and it would be easier to take it in seminary. There was once a time when the leading scholars of both classical and New Testament Greek were Christian leaders but not any more. What will it take for Christians to understand that all these concepts that undergird political correctness such as feminism, white privilege, queer theory, and on and on, originated in English departments, in courses which everyone is required to take, not philosoply or sociology or anthropology. Let’s start attacking the real strongholds.

    Hello and God Bless you!

    Your kind consideration of this message is appreciated. You and many people have expressed, … “where is an alternative platform to Facebook?” The answer is …
    Day 7 Corporation – Austin, TX

    Day 7 has developed an open social media platform which has the same and more resources, features, benefits, and data as Facebook. However, it is a constationally conservative platform with Divine Order community standards. Especially the standard which eliminates and prevents indiscriminate censorship.

    The company has several operational partners including: Oracle, Pivotal (IT development company for over 60% of the Fortune 500), Mighty (design and development), BSG (Banking Solutions Group – funding & financial),
    Giles Parscale (Trump’s Marketing Agency and data team), DeMoss (Franklin Graham’s PR company).

    The company is in a unique position now where many of the tech disciplines are being tailored to fit the current needs of all people, the U.S. constationally conservative citizens, the Judeo – Christian society in the U.S., and will be edited to suit the cultures Day 7 will serve globally.

    If you wish further info, clarity and validity, it would be best for you to contact our brother Carter Hill, founder of Day 7 ; Cell 949 929 7081. He can connect you with the right principals in each of Day 7’s supporting member groups, supporting partners, and partner companies for answers to your specific questions.

    I trust this helps you. I also hope you will seek to find out how and where you can help Day 7. Your only risk is not doing anything, thereby leaving the social media realm to the un-Godly group who now controls it.

    Sincerely,

  3. Hello Lance,

    Dr. Michael Heisner (doctorates in Ancient Languages, Hebrew, Greek for Biblical studying…).

    On Jim Bakker show’s YouTube you can bring up a 6 min piece of Dr Heiner explaining:
    “Upon this rock I will build MY CHURCH.
    And the Gates of Hell will not
    (Heiner true translation of the Greek word, used here)
    be able to WITHSTAND IT.

    [In other words the church is not trying to hold off against Satan and minions. No, the Church is administering the beating of Satan and his crew of principalities and powers.

    Dr. Heisner says with this correct translation of WITHSTAND instead of PREVAIL, one gets a better picture of what Jesus was saying to Peter.

    This lines up with ALL the things Jesus says of his CHURCH.

    I like Heisner’s point. And use it everyday to get stronger.

    What think you?
