BLACK ROBED REGIMENT ARISE!
by Dr. Scott Lively
In the Revolutionary War, pastors who joined the Continental Army were called the Black Robed Regiment, and there were many because they understood the need for Godly Leadership to defeat tyranny. Without them we would not have become the first and greatest Constitutional Republic in the history of the world: a nation founded upon the Bible and a Covenental Oath called the Declaration of Independence.
Today, America faces a comparable test. President Trump’s miraculous victory in 2016 saved us from subjection to the Clinton Crime Family and provided a window of reprieve in which to take back our country from the predatory leftist elites of the deep state, an adversary far more insidious than King George.
Under the banner of “Resistance,” all the powers and principalities of the hard left, deploying all their fascist tactics, are waging a massive political offensive and massing for the Great Election War of 2018. Their goal is to crush our rebellion, oust our president, and finish their task of subsuming Christian America under global socialist control.
Today we face a critical test of Christian courage and resolve. The Black Robed Regiment MUST rise again and provide Godly leadership on America’s political battlefield.
As a proud member of that regiment, I issue a challenge to every Bible-believing pastor: ARISE BROTHERS! Enter the fray at this critical juncture! Run for political office wherever you are, but especially in places where the Godless Left has the tightest stranglehold. Run to win! But even where that end is unlikely, run sacrificially, willing to govern if God grants the victory, but forcing the adversary to expend resources defending ground they thought was secure. Shun political “norms” and expectations, using your platform to boldly shine the light of the Gospel and Biblical truth into the darkness of the political realm. Bravely defy media mockery and intimidation to give hope and encouragement to every believer, seeker and conservative ally under the yoke of liberal oppression.
In this I am leading by example, running aggressively as a pro-life, pro-constitution conservative against the most popular governor in America (a pro-abortion, anti-family, pork-shoveling Republican) – in ultra-liberal Massachusetts.
In God’s eyes we win just by standing up to speak plain truth without apology or equivocation. So, for the Love of God, our Families, and our Fellow Americans, BLACK ROBED REGIMENT: ARISE!
