Dave Kistler:                      Well, ladies and gentlemen, as many of you know, this past Thursday, Joe Biden conducted a press event at which he stated that he was issuing an executive order, authorizing the Department of Labor to require businesses that employ a hundred people or more to mandate that their employees either be fully vaccinated or submit to weekly testing. And I don’t know about you, but I was appalled, I was angered by what I witnessed as he has absolutely no authority, no constitutional authority whatsoever, to do what he was doing.

Nowhere. Again, I repeat, nowhere in the constitution is the federal government, much less the executive branch, authorized or allowed to make that kind of decision. And this was in my estimation, the most egregiously unconstitutional action by a president in our lifetime. Think about it. The illegitimate leader of our country bestows upon a bureaucratic agency, the Department of Labor, no one there was elected by the people. It’s a bureaucratic agency. The epitome of it. But yet, he bestows upon them the authority to coerce private enterprise or companies to require vaccinations or be penalized in the form of thousands of dollars per employee, if they don’t comply well.

I’m going to say it this way. The founders of our country, the founders of our constitution would literally roll over in their graves if they knew what Joe Biden did this past Thursday. As well, friends, we have the recall election today in the State of California.

You have Gavin Newsom, a disaster really from the State of California, is being challenged primarily by Larry Elder, a man who has his head certainly screwed on straight and would govern in a way that would be completely antithetical to the failed policies of the Newsom administration, but in a Trump-esque way for the betterment of the people of the state. And yet, Larry Elder’s being demeaned and criticized, and he’s been called a black Donald Trump and all kinds of other lies have been told about him in the days leading up to today’s recall election.

And then we have the disastrous, but deliberate, Afghan exit debacle about which we now know that in addition to leaving behind $90 billion worth of military hardware and military equipment, we also left behind pallets of cash. And we left it to the Taliban. Think about that. Not to mention the abandonment of our citizens in that war-torn country. Effectively now we have made the hostages there exactly that: hostages to the heartless Taliban government.

And friends, I don’t know if you remember this, because our memories tends to be short, but Barack Obama did something very similar to this in 2010, when he sent pallets of cash to the tune of about 1.7 billion to the country of Iran. My question is this, what gives with these anti-American Islamic-friendly terror-supporting decisions? And again, you do know that the same people who worked for the Obama administration and assisted in the facilitating of his mission within his administration are the same individuals who now occupy positions of leadership within the illegitimate Biden administration.

All of this has created an enormous sense of urgency and unease within the hearts of the American citizenry. So, that’s going to be our topic today: Urgency: Understanding the Times and How We Should Respond.

And with all of that, I want to welcome you to Stand in the Gap today. I am Dave Kistler, joined today by Dr. Gary Dull, and a very special guest who has written a book just released called Urgency, and that is our friend evangelist, Frank Shelton. Frank, I want to welcome you to the program today, my friend. I can’t think of anyone I’d rather have on to talk about this topic than you.

Frank Shelton:                   Well, that means more than you know, Dave and God bless you and Gary, and thank you for the high honor to be with you and your listeners. It’s going to be an amazing time today, and thank you so much.

Dave Kistler:                      Frank, again, it’s our delight to have you aboard. All of that I’ve just described just underscores the title of your book and illustrates, I think, powerfully the urgent times in which we live.

What I want to do, Frank, here right out of the shoot is get your perspective on what is happening around us. And then we’re going to come to your book a little bit in the next segment, but please feel free to share anything from your book, because obviously you’ve been observing what we’ve been observing, and it just puts an exclamation point on the title of your book.

Frank Shelton:                   Well, thank you. And we’ll unpack that later on, but the cover of the book is an hourglass and the sands of time are about to slip through. And God gave me a word some time ago, “Ministry minus urgency equals catastrophe.” And if we’ve learned anything from the pandemic that was planned, we don’t have forever. Tomorrow’s not guaranteed. Jesus said, “Today is the day of salvation.”

And even when you talk about… I don’t know if I say the president or the one who’s the resident there, but the bottom line is Biden is now alleging that it’s mandatory that any times over a crowd or a company with a hundred, they’re forcing these godawful vaccinations, that according to the definition is not even a vaccination. And the interesting thing is, Congress has said that they’re exempt from this.

You know The Hill better than anyone with 535 members of Congress, counting both the House and the Senate, if they’re over a hundred and they don’t need to participate, they’re already hinting that’s 600,000 of the US postal service very well may not get it either. It’s just not only insane. It’s un-American and it’s unconstitutional.

And then when you look at Afghanistan, when we have political leaders who don’t even fight for the unborn, it shouldn’t surprise us that they’re going to leave our own behind, who are already alive and standing and walking. They’ve not only failed America. There’s actually some good folks in Afghanistan, that were longing for liberty, fighting for freedom, and they were left behind. In America public schools, we preach, “Leave no child behind.” But my God, we failed many good citizens behind and they’ve died. So, we need leadership. We need it now. And I’m praying that Biden would get in the Bible because we all need it.

Dave Kistler:                      Well, Frank, very well said. Gary, I don’t know if you’ve had the opportunity today to watch any of Antony Blinken’s ongoing testimony. He testified before a House Committee yesterday, today it’s Senate Committee. And he was grilled yesterday by one of our good friends, Congressman Brian Mast from the State of Florida.

But Gary, all of this factors into what we’re talking about. It creates an enormous sense of urgency. We’ve never really been where we are right now. And you as a pastor, you’ve witnessed all of this, especially what’s happened in the last three weeks. And I’d love, as we wrap up this segment, just to get your perspective on what’s going on.

Gary Dull:                           You know, brother, Dave, certainly we are living in a time of urgency and I appreciate this book that brother Frank has written, and that we’re going to be talking about today. I think it’s time for Christians to wake up. A couple of times in the New Testament, the Bible tells us to wake up. Why? Simply because of the fact that things around us are getting worse and worse and will continue to get worse and worse until the return of the Lord, Jesus Christ.

But on the other hand, those of us who are Christians, have the power of the gospel in our hands. And it’s the power of the gospel that changes lives. And I think that if there’s one thing that we should wake up to as Christians is to get out the word of God. People need a change of life. People need to come to the saving knowledge of the Lord, Jesus Christ. And one of the things that I’ve been thinking about continuously as I’ve been watching what’s going on in the world around us in these past couple of weeks is, “My oh my, we’ve got the answer to the needs of the world and that’s Jesus Christ. And it’s important that we get out that message.”

Dave Kistler:                      Well, ladies and gentlemen, Romans 13:11 says, “And that knowing the time that it is high time to awake out of sleep, for now is our salvation nearer than when we believe.” Well, when we come back from this break, we’re going to talk further with our guests about his new book and why the title Urgency was chosen. Don’t you go anywhere. Great program coming up in Stand in the Gap today.



Dave Kistler:                      Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to Stand in the Gap today. I’m Dave Kistler, accompanied today by my dear friend, Dr. Gary Dull, and a very special guest named Frank Shelton. Frank is the author of a new book entitled Urgency. And that’s what we’re discussing and that’s actually framed our topic for today. Urgency: Understanding the Times and How We Should Respond to them. What you need to know about Frank Shelton is he’s an international evangelist. He worked for years with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. And prior to that, he was actually an employee up on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC working as a staffer.

But Frank comes from a long line of Capitol Hill police officers, going all the way back to the days of our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln. His dad was a Capitol Hill police officer, so he has a rich history and had a promising, beyond promising, career on Capitol Hill. But God called him into the ministry. He gave up all of that career and went into the ministry of evangelism, but still to this day really has the best of both worlds.

He ministers in Washington, DC, but well beyond DC, around the world, preaching the gospel on large events in churches as well. And he’s got some upcoming things in the State of Maryland that we may have him share with you toward the end of the program. But his new book, again is forming the basis for our topic today. Again, it’s Urgency: Understanding the Times and How We Should Respond.

Frank, could I ask you to do this? My friend, again, it’s a delight to have you aboard. I’d love for you to share a little bit about how your family goes all the way back to the days of Abraham Lincoln, as far as their involvement with the Capitol Hill police. But also if you would, after sharing that, answer this question, why this book? Why now and why the title?

Frank Shelton:                   Wow. What a great question, Dave. And thank you, brother. And by the way, thank you for endorsing the book. And we just found out it was the number one new release on Amazon for all of Christianity and evangelism. So, God gets the glory and I want to thank you personally.

But yeah, our family are a five generation consecutive DC police. Mary Todd Lincoln, handpicked my ancestor off the Civil War, Joseph Gail Shelton, to be stationed three years at the White House, became close friends with President Lincoln. Lincoln had an African-American Butler that he picked. If you watch fake news, it would look like that the Republicans don’t like African-Americans. It’s the furthest from the truth. It was the white Republican that put an African American in that prestigious position in the executive mansion. And every time Lincoln saw the Butler, he would tip his hat and say, “Hello.”

The night they walked to Ford’s Theater, Dave, with my ancestor over his shoulder, he tipped his hat, looked at the African-American and said, “Goodbye.” And then he was shot and killed just hours later. The butler said later, “In all my years dealing with the president, it was always, ‘Hello, good day. See you later.’ But on that Good Friday, it was, ‘Goodbye.'” That’s the premise of my book.

I’m convinced Lincoln knew his time was up and the greats know what time it is. And it was my ancestor, a Shelton, that hand-carried Abraham Lincoln across the street from Ford’s Theater, Good Friday [inaudible 00:11:41] of 1865. And then my ancestors went on to be DC police, US park police. My grandfather was captain with metropolitan DC police. My uncle Charlie was a Lieutenant with Capitol Police in charge of the canine. And my father retired as acting assistant chief of the entire department.

So, out of 3000, my dad was number two in command when he retired. So, our family was paid to protect others, from custodians to commanders-in-chief, I was with the US Capitol police for two years. Also had an interview with the US Secret Service, the special agent in charge of the Baltimore field office, said, “Frank, you would make one hell of a special agent.”

And I actually got injured in training. I prayed that, “Lord, if you don’t want me to do this, shut the door.” Three hours later, I’m in the back of an ambulance. I tore my side, my kidneys crashed. For 13 days, I was in the hospital, and it was obvious that the Lord was calling me to leave the government and step out into full-time ministry.

But just where my family protected presidents in the congressional committee, writing this book, Dave, I felt like the Lord said maybe I’m to protect the general audience. We’re so late in the game. And you went with me to the United Nations. I went with you to meetings with members of Congress. And those relationships on Capitol Hill, at the UN with the Hollywood industry, I was able to piece the dots. Some people actually showed me, told me, the agenda that was coming down the pike.

And a lot of people think Gary, and Dave, that we as pastors should just preach love, love, love. Well, we have to preach the full gospel. We need to talk about love. We need to talk about the law and there’s the Lord. He fulfilled the law. Yes, his middle name probably could be love, but I’m also, as an evangelist pastor shepherd, just like you, if I know the bridge around the corner is out, I wouldn’t be much of a friend, much less clergy, to tickle ears and just preach love and everything’s fine.

And I know that I know that the walls have been closing. The sand has slipped through the hourglass. If we’re not in the bottom of the ninth, we’re in the top of the ninth, Jesus is coming soon. He’s coming quickly. And ready or not, here he comes. And that’s why I wrote the book. I was booking 10 countries in 12 months last year, I was boarding a plane to fly by myself to Afghanistan, March 9th and you and two other accountability partners said, “Frank, I don’t think you’re supposed to get on that plane.”

It was the only second time in my life I missed a flight. I was flying to preach to 150,000 Muslims, 10 miles from where they killed Osama bin Laden. And they told me, Dave, “You’re speaking about Afghanistan.” They told me, “You can come, but you probably won’t come home.” They told me the Taliban was going to be on the rooftops when I preached. And you say, “Why in the world would you go last year to preach to that crowd, those Muslims with the Taliban?”

Two things. I’m an evangelist, and we go after souls. And two, I knew the urgency, time was running out, and I didn’t get on the plane. And within 24 hours that COVID hit, the president suspended travel from the East and the crusade never happened. And I would’ve been stuck in an airport in the Middle East. Everyone said, “Man, write a book, write a book.” And then five weeks I typed 235 pages in five weeks.

And then the bottom fell out. And three Saturdays, my car died on top of the bridge. I got bit by a snake, and Microsoft Edge deleted my 235-page manuscript right before we went to print. In three weeks, a dead car, a dead book, and either a dead snake or a dead author. I went through hell to write this book, and it finally came out.

And man, God is all over it, but there’s a chapter called Pandemic or Plandemic. One chapter, “Stand,” Jesus’ said, “Having done all, stand.” The last chapter is called Occupied. Jesus said, “Occupy till I come.” And I even got a chapter in there about secret societies.

Abraham Lincoln was not a 33-degree free Mason, but darn if John Wilkes Booth, who shot him in the back of the head once. And we are living in a culture of death. And more than ever, I just want to encourage folks. We need to get into not only the book, the Bible, but I would encourage them to buy this book, Urgency, because it will piece the puzzle of where are we at this late in the game.

Gary Dull:                           Frank, I appreciate you explaining all of that to us. And I thank the Lord that you didn’t go to Afghanistan and you’re still being used by the Lord in evangelism. I’m thinking of the Old Testament scripture that tells us that it is God who directs our paths, and I’m so thankful that he’s directed your paths accordingly.

But as it relates to your book, I love that title, Urgency: Understanding the Times and How We Should Respond. Back in the Old Testament, it speaks to the sons of Issachar who understood the times. Can you ingest a moment or two that we have left in this particular segment? Explain to our audience what your contention is in the book that you’ve read them as it relates to what do the times bring us today? And really, if there’s one or two things we should do to respond biblically, what should those one or two things be?

Frank Shelton:                   Amen. Well, Jesus said we need to redeem the time. A lot of people waste time, but we need to redeem the time. We need to get our house in order. We need to get our hearts in order. And what breaks my heart is, I think you both would agree, most of us don’t have a clue of how late in the game we really are. We have been told and spoonfed the lie of, “Trust the science.”

There’s 38,000 verses in the Bible, and the dead center verse of God’s holy word is Psalm 1:18-8, “Better to put your trust in God than put your trust in men.” And we’re told to trust a science when I’ve done some investigation. There’s scientists at the press conference who don’t even believe in the savior. So, how are you going to trust the science when we have scientists who aren’t even adhering to God’s word?

And respectfully, Dr. Fauci, he needs forgiveness. Gates needs God. And the government, Reagan said it succinctly, “The scariest words ever strung together is, ‘I’m from the government. And I’m here to help.'” We need a salvation, not a vaccination. And while the globalists push for a reset, I think the Lord is wanting one more revival. And presidents come and go, but the king is on his way.

Dave Kistler:                      Ladies and gentlemen, let me follow up on what Frank just said. It’s a powerful statement. Right in the middle of the sacred scriptures is Psalm 118:8-9. And verse eight says, “It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in men.” That’s the part that Frank quoted. Verse nine says, “It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.”

And ladies and gentlemen, princes are basically what we would say today politicians. So much confidence has been placed in those in high places of leadership in our country. And those people have absolutely betrayed us. I want to say this to you unequivocally: there is one who will never betray you and his name is Jesus Christ. And if you don’t know him as savior, the whole point of this program today is to try to compel you, to urge you, to plead with you, to stop dead in your tracks, stop pursuing the pleasures of this world. Call out to Jesus Christ, the greatest friend you will ever have. Ask him to forgive your sin, come into your heart and life and save you, be your Redeemer, and assure you of an eternity with him.

Dave Kistler:                      Ladies and gentlemen, we’re talking today with Frank Shelton, my dear friend, and a book that he’s written. And after the break, we’re going to come back and talk about that, but a lot more. We’re going to be talking about the Biden mandates and where they are taking us, both politically, far more importantly, where they’re taking us prophetically. Don’t you go anywhere. This and more, coming up.

Dave Kistler:                      Ladies and Gentlemen, again, welcome back to Stand in the Gap today. This is Dave Kistler, joined today by two wonderful friends and two great servants of our Lord: Dr. Gary Dull and Dr. Frank Shelton. And it’s a privilege to have both of them on the program today.

We’re talking about this topic, Urgency: Understanding the Times and How We Should Respond. I want to back up to the year 1765, and just sort of relay to you some information that you may remember from your high school history class, you may not, but in 1765, as a result of the stamp act, Patrick Henry delivered a speech to the Virginia House of Burgesses in which he made the following statement.

He said, “Caesar had his Brutus, Charles I, his Cromwell, and George III may well profit by their example.” Well, ladies and gentlemen, before he was able even to finish that statement, cries of treason were heard from the attendees. And the reason that was the case is because Caesar was assassinated by Brutus. Charles I by Cromwell. And then of course, George III from whom we ultimately declared independence from England. And he was the king at the time. People knew where Patrick Henry was going with that statement.

Well, initially accused of treason for his comment, the courageous Patrick Henry, with that speech, started a movement that resulted later in the most recognized speech he ever gave and ultimately resulted in the war for American independence. It was 10 years later in March. In fact, March 16th of 1775, at the Virginia Convention, Henry urged the need, powerfully communicated the need, to form armed militias in Virginia, just in case the British troops attempted to control that area.

And as you can well imagine, there was opposition in Virginia to any form of organization against the crown. But the persuasive Patrick Henry, from accounts that I’ve read given by people at the meetings, ended his convention speech with this very emotional plea, you will recognize it. “Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.” And of course, we know now what followed was the war for independence.

Frank, I want to use that as a springboard to talk to you just for a minute. There’s a lot going on in our world, and certainly in our nation, that we’ve never faced before. And your book, Urgency, is appropriate for this time. That’s the topic for today. Urgency: Understanding the Times and How We Should Respond.

And I want to ask you this, Frank, if I could go here right now. The mandating of mass throughout the last year and a half, approaching actually two years, and now this vaccine coercion that may ultimately result in a nationwide mandate, Biden pushing private companies to do something that, again, our founders would absolutely be standing in disbelief if they knew what he was doing. Where is all of this, in your estimation, taking us prophetically? Because I believe there’s a prophetic component to all of this.

Frank Shelton:                   The first page of my book actually says a Bible verse because I want it to be God’s word, not just my own, but that famous scripture, “We don’t wrestle with flesh and blood, but principalities, powers of darkness.”

I learned a long time ago you’re either used by the Lord or you’re going to be used by the world. And if you’re used by the world, you’re with the beast system and the devil, and these guys and gals are pawns on the devil’s chessboard. And that’s why we need to pray for those leaders. And that’s why I tip my hat to you. You and your son, and the amazing ministry on the Hill. The church has been great going after the poor, but we didn’t always go after the powerful and prominent. And we’ve also done our best as well. People need the Lord.

I said last March, during the two weeks [inaudible 00:23:56], “Mark my words, the mask today will lead to the mark tomorrow.” And if you weren’t allowed to go into the store without a mask, there would be a day, and we’re there now, that you may not be able to buy from the same store in the near future. In my book, I unpacked the mask. I found a picture, Dave and Gary, of an African slave 350 years ago, who was wearing the mask.

And it did three things. It stole their identity, it stopped their voice, and it showed submission to their master on the plantation. And I can tell you, when you see a person driving in the car with no one in it, put the windows up and the mask on, I know right there where politically they are and what news network they watch. They have been watching the fake news. They’ve been spoon fed lies, and I want to share in love, especially to my African-American friends, we’ve celebrated with you your freedom, and you have now handcuffed yourselves all over again.

The plantation, the white man in the past, it was wrong then, it’s wrong now. But the difference is a globalist, the Rothschilds, the Rockefeller, the Gates. They’re the ones trying to call the shots literally, and force you with the demonic shot.

Revelation 18 says, “In the last days, a sorcery will deceive the globe.” The Greek word for sorcery is pharmakeia, where we get the word pharmaceutical or pharmacy. I’m convinced that the COVID-19 alleged vaccine is the thing that is deceiving the globe. And when you realize what they’re pushing, when you realize what they’re desiring, it’s about dollars and de-population, and they want to dominate. And the greatest quote I’ve heard the past year was this, “The vaccine was not created for COVID-19. COVID-19 was created to usher in the vaccine.”

The vaccine is the Trojan horse to usher in the new world order, the beast system, and that’s how late in the game we are. It is not about your health. It’s about redistribution of wealth. And they literally believe people like you and I don’t deserve to breathe the air they breathe.

See, if you are not a Christian, this is the only Heaven you’ll ever get. But those of us who are born again and sealed by the blood, this is the only hell we’re going to go through. And they are trying to demand a utopia, but I’m telling you, Jesus is coming soon. And it’s a battle of the blood. This vaccine has not only been proven to alter your DNA, but it will taint your blood.

Jesus said, “If you’re trying to find your life, you’ll lose it. If you’re willing to lose your life, you’ll find it.” I got two calls this week. People who just got a double jab with the vaccine. One died within 48 hours. The other cannot even stand without a walker.

Last week, I got a call from North Carolina, a 49-year-old public school teacher, perfect health, 36 hours of taking a second jab, dies on the gym floor of a public school. We are up against an agenda of death. Without naming names, when religious leaders are saying, “Jesus himself would take the vaccine.” I’m like, “Jesus would touch the lepers.” We need to just cling to the cross. We need to look to Christ, and I’m going to trust the savior while others trust the science.

Dave Kistler:                      Wow. Frank. Yeah, Gary. Frank, Gary and I are communicating behind the scenes. This is great stuff.

Gary Dull:                           This is great stuff. And folks, I want to encourage you to do what you can today to go out and get that book, Urgency. You can get it on Amazon. And Frank, what you just said is tremendous. I like that phrase that you used, “The mask today will lead to the mark tomorrow.”

I can remember years ago when I was growing up wondering how all of this was going to come together as it related to the mark of the beast, but we’re seeing it every day in front of us today, as it relates to the mask or the vaccine or other things taking place around us as well. Well, you answered the question from the perspective of how all of this is working out prophetically, but where’s this taking us politically? If you don’t mind answering that question, Frank, I’d appreciate it very much your thoughts.

Frank Shelton:                   Yeah. Well, politically, and I literally was born on Capitol Hill. It’s been an honor to serve both sides. We pray for them. I really believe the Lord promotes life and liberty. And I just want to free those to those listening.

If you’re aligned to an agenda that’s death to babies, death to the constitution, death to the family, death to the church, death to small business, death to entrepreneurial, and yes, death to America, I have to ask the humble question, why so much death? The devil delights in death and destruction. The Lord is life, love and liberty.

And even back to the mask, the first thing when Jesus arose Lazarus from the dead, the first thing he said was, “Unbound him. Unloose him.” I found, Gary, that those who enjoy the mask on the mouth, if you did an x-ray, it would show their heart is handcuffed. The Lord loves liberty. And politically, when you look at the irony of irony is they put us on house arrest last year, but they let prisoners go free.

The wall that Trump built is no longer, and they project two million folks are coming through unvetted, unvaccinated, and they’re going to be registering for the left. If they have it their way, they will never lose an election again. Gavin Newsom should lose the election, the recall today. But if they’re going to do what they did in November, and they alleged that Biden in his basement had 80 million votes. They are saying he had more votes than Barack Obama.

And bless his heart, I’ve been up those steps aboard Air Force One, and I’m not making fun of them, but he can’t even get up the steps of Air Force One. The catch is, that’s why we need to get our hearts in order, our homes in order. Some of us need a checkup with the neck up because they’re not playing fair.

Dave Kistler:                      Ladies and gentlemen, you’re listening to Frank Shelton. Unvetted, unvaccinated, but they’re going to vote. Wow. That’s a powerful statement. We’re going to talk more about this after the break.

Dave Kistler:                      Well, ladies and gentlemen, again, welcome to Stand in the Gap today. This is Dave Kistler joined today by Dr. Gary Dull, Dr. Frank Shelton. And I’m looking at my clock and wondering, “Where did the time go today?” This program has gone by so quickly, but I want to say to both Gary and Frank, there’s not any other two men in the entire country that I enjoy spending time with more than the two of you. We’re sheer kinship and are kindred spirits in every way. And I’m just so thankful to have both of you on the program today.

Again, ladies and gentlemen, our topic has been Urgency: Understanding the Times and How We Should Respond. And we’re basing that topic on the title of Frank Shelton’s new book, it’s called Urgency. I want to encourage you to go out and purchase the book. It’s available on Amazon. It’s available where books are sold, just about everywhere. And Frank, before you exit the program today, I want you to take a few minutes and just… or few seconds will probably be all we have, but you just tell where the people can procure your book.

But I want to ask this question of you. And if we have time, Gary, I want to get your response to it as well. We are watching, over the last three weeks, what appears to be nothing short of something that was absolutely done deliberately. I’ve heard the word inept used to describe Joe Biden, Anthony Blinken, Mark Milley, the chairman of the joint chiefs, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. That word, inept, has been used repeatedly in the media with respect to all of the names I just mentioned, but guys, I want to say this.

About three weeks ago, I began to realize, I don’t think this is ineptness at all. This is deliberate. You do not go into a country like Afghanistan, stay there 20 years, and then on your exit from that country, take your military out first, leave all your citizens behind. Those translators and brave Afghan people that have helped you. You leave them behind as well and get your soldiers out first. That’s not the way it works. You get your people out first, you get your helpers and your friends out second, then you take your military out last.

Well, what’s been done under Joe Biden’s “administration” has been the opposite of that. This has to be planned. And now we’re learning that pallets of cash were left behind. Today, I was watching earlier, just a few minutes of Lincoln’s testimony before a Senate Committee. I’m sorry, ladies and gentlemen, the lies that have been told, that are being told, that were told today are egregious. I’ve never seen anything like it. So, they’re covering for something that was done deliberately. Frank, I want to go to you. What is going on?

Frank Shelton:                   Well, first of all, we’re finding not everyone loves God and country, and we are either going to stand for Christ in the constitution, or we’ve already caved and coward to China and communism.

A couple of years ago, the Lord told me they’re not coming after the Confederate flag. It’s a diversion. They’re coming after the red, white and blue. Reagan basically called America the last great hope on Earth, and we are like dominoes, and I’m not talking pizza. If America goes, it’s over. There’s a disrespect for authority. We don’t like our parents. We don’t like the police. We don’t like preachers. We don’t like the president because, deep inside, we haven’t recognized the prince of peace. Until we honor his authority, we can’t respect earthly authority.

So, this was orchestrated, it was intentional, it was deliberate. And these are not a bunch of Keystone cops. Biden and his cabinet, the same folks are the ones who wanted to defund the police. And it’s a travesty, it’s atrocious. And it was premeditated. I mean, it was during the Obama White House that they gave Fauci 3.7 million to play with. In writing the book, he actually went to UNC Chapel Hill first, and they would not allow him in the Tar Heel State to play with that.

So, they go to Wuhan. And the interesting thing is, Gary and Dave, that when the first patient zero landed on American soil in January, 2020 in Washington State, the same day is when Nancy Pelosi and the other Washington took out articles of impeachment against the president of the United States. And I was, fast forward the next month, February, 2020, I’m in Orange County, California, and I’m reading the front page of the paper in town preaching revival, and the top left corner said, “Kobe Bryant dies in helicopter. Funeral services today at the Staple Center.” The right column said, “Coronavirus, sweeping across America, looking for a cure.”

The Holy Spirit said, “I wonder if there’s a connection or symbolism between Kobe’s death and the Coronavirus.” Dave, I’ve been told the word Kobe, K-O-B-E, in Greek translated back to English on Google Translate, spells COVID, C-O-V-I-D. And if you Google, your listeners right now, where Kobe Bryant is buried, he’s in Corona, California. Corona Del Rey, California is where he’s buried.

And I felt like we’re dealing with blood sacrifice. They believe the bigger the star, the bigger the sacrifice, could Kobe’s death resemble the millions of death that would die to Corona? And I’m just throwing that out there. The catch is, I really believe they were trying to remove the president. And when Nancy Pelosi shredded the speech, it was symbolically shredding the constitution.

In the last days, good will be called evil. And there’s Christians and conservatives like us and clergy who are on the watch list, as if we’re terrorists. All we want to do is love God, love others and honor America, but that could give some of us a prison sentence in the near future.

Dave Kistler:                      Gary, some powerful stuff Frank is communicating, not just in this segment, but in the entirety of the program. I want you to tie it all together, my friend. What do we do?

We understand the times. I think we understand the sense of urgency we need to have because we’re living in times in which we’ve never resided before. What do we do? How do we respond? And once you make that statement, I want you to lead us in prayer, if you would, to close out the program.

Gary Dull:                           Well, brother, Dave, I don’t know about you, but I think I’m ready to preach. I really do appreciate what Frank has been sharing. But two passages of scripture come to my mind. We need to understand what is going on. And Ephesians 6:12 tells us that, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

We are fighting Satan and all of his minions, and we need to understand that. Therefore, we need to put on the whole armor of God, but also 1 Corinthians 15:18 is an encouraging verse for every one of as believers to obey and to practice, “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord for as much as you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” Let us understand that we are fighting the forces of evil, the devil himself, and the only way we can overcome that is through the blood of the lamb, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the word of God.

And so it’s important, ladies and gentlemen, that we are in the word of God and that we proclaim the word of God. Don’t give up. Don’t quit. Keep on abounding in the work of the Lord and watch God work. Father, I pray that you’ll give us the wisdom and the strength to truly understand what the battle is that we’re facing. It’s a spiritual battle, but I’m thankful for within you, you are the one who fights our battles for us. Give us the strength, Lord, give us the wisdom. Give us the understanding to stand fast always and be about your work, and use us all for your glory in seeing soul saved, and your name exalted. And we’ll give you the praise for it. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Dave Kistler:                      Amen. Frank Shelton, tell us where your book can be found and how those that are listening today can procure a copy of it.

Frank Shelton:                   Yes, sir. The best thing to do is just go to Amazon, type in Urgency, Frank Shelton. And again, I hear it’s the number one new release for Christianity and evangelism. Thank you again, Dave, for the endorsement. And they can go to to also read more. But I just want to tell you, I honor you both. Thank you for standing tall for truth, because time is short.

Dave Kistler:                      Ladies and gentlemen, you’ve been listening to Stand in the Gap today. I want to encourage you to do this. Stand up for truth where you are, just like Frank Shelton is doing, just like we’re trying to do. And above all, keep looking up. The best is indeed yet to come.
