Dave Kistler: Well, ladies and gentlemen, one week ago today, Monday, August the 8th, America changed forever. How? Well, the home of a private citizen who also happened to be the 45th President of the United States of America was raided by the FBI. This was done in a heavy handed over the top, and personally, I believe unconstitutional manner, in a fashion that has never been seen like this in the United States of America before. And ladies and gentlemen, I believe this is nothing less than the weaponization of a governmental agency in the form of the FBI against an American citizen and political opponent. And what you need to understand is this, if this can be done to Donald J. Trump, it can be done to you and will be done using the 87,000 new IRS agents that will be paid for by your tax dollars to further harass the American people.
Well, one man sees this for exactly what it is and is speaking up about it and speaking up loudly. His name is Jason Rapert. He’s an ordained minister of the gospel. He’s also a sitting Arkansas State Senator, and he is the founder and president of the National Association of Christian Lawmakers. And here’s what Jason had to say this past Monday evening as soon as he heard what was going on at Mar-a-Lago when he took to Facebook to express his sentiments. Tim, let’s listen.
Jason Rapert: Well, good evening, America, what’s left of it. I’m out here on my farm just working some this evening, getting ready for the Arkansas special legislative session. And I start having my phone blowing up with people telling me that the FBI is raiding former President Donald Trump’s house in Mar-a-Lago. I’m going to tell you something, I don’t know what you Democrats think you’re doing, but you just threw the fire on top of an absolute inferno on this country is what you’ve done. Because we are absolutely sick and tired of these tyrannical monsters called the Democrats in office in this nation.
And I’m going to tell you something, I’m an ordained minister of the gospel. I’m a sitting State Senator right now, and I am an American patriot that believes in this country. I’ve done everything I can to talk nice about this situation to people, but if you’re like me folks out there right now, you have had enough of this absolute monstrosity that we have sitting in the White House, nothing but a usurper, you are sitting there illegitimately. Joe Biden didn’t any more win this election than a man on the moon. That’s what I believe. You don’t use the FBI to raid the house of a former president of the United States and think that you’re there legitimately. Let me tell you that for sure. You got me? And I hope every one of you share this. I hope you share it with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and send it right into the heart of the Democrat party.
And I’m going to tell you something, I am upset about it, and I’m talking straight personal as an American. You can take every title I’ve got and lay it aside. You can lay it all on the side, but I’m telling you right now people, the 87,000 new IRS agents that they just pushed through… Well, get ready, buddy, because this is their training video, because they’re going to come knocking on your door, they’re going to come knocking on your business. They didn’t do this for the 780 something billionaires in America. They did it for the American middle class, the same middle class that they actually shut down during this COVID plandemic that they’ve done. Yeah, I’m mad about it. And folks, you ought to be mad about it too.
Dave Kistler: Well, ladies and gentlemen, I don’t know about you, but I love it when a man, and I’m talking about a man’s man, especially a preacher, has what I’m just going to call the old fashioned guts to simply tell it like it is. Well, as soon as I heard Jason’s direct honest and I’m going to say beyond refreshing comments that you just heard, I thought, “Man, I’ve got to get him on radio.” And at the time I didn’t know we had some mutual friends, but we do. And I’m thrilled to tell you that we have Jason on the program today. He’s going to join us, me and Pastor Joe Green who’s going to be cohost today on the program. We’re going to discuss this topic When It’s Right to be Angry, There is Such a Thing as Righteous Indignation. And here to help us again with the discussion is evangelist and Arkansas State Senator Jason Rapert. He is also the founder and president of the National Association of Christian Lawmakers. Jason, it is a delight to have you on the program. Welcome to Stand in the Gap Today.
Jason Rapert: Well, thank you so much for having me here. It’s truly an honor to be with you. I appreciate the fact that God is bringing together people like us who love this country and who love the Lord and know that we have to stand up for what we believe in.
Dave Kistler: Well, I couldn’t agree with you more. And Jason, the entire 14 minute video from which I played the brief clip that everyone heard just moments ago has now been seen over, well over 1 million times since Monday evening, a week ago. I know you had no idea that was going to happen, but your comments and your courageous stand has resonated with the American people. I’m just curious if you could share with our listeners today why you believe that what you had to say is being so well received?
Jason Rapert: Well, it’s a great question. And I will just tell you, we’ve talked about it before on the program. I do a daily program called Save the Nation with Jason Rapert. It gets viewership it’s on radio and on internet, television. But it was interesting that this 15-minute video or so that I did on my farm, and by the way, I just have to say, David, I loved that you could hear my little black creek beagle. I named him [inaudible 00:06:05], running a rabbit in the background. It was a great analogy for the fact that we’re on the scent in this country. The hounds are beginning to bark.
And that’s why I think people are responding, because we know when we know that we know that something is amiss. What happened when you suddenly see the FBI weaponized against a former president of the United States, those that know history… Remember David, I don’t want to get us too far off base here. We may come back to it later, but there is a record of the 45 communist goals to take over America that was read into the congressional record in 1963 by Congressman Herlong of Florida. One of those points was discredit the FBI. Well, what have we seen over the last few years in this country? You had FBI special agents trying to interrupt an election of a president of the United States, which happens to be the same one that they went in and raided the other day.
What we’ve seen is that the Democrats weaponizing the FBI and other agencies of the government, like the IRS a few years ago when they kept trying to keep Patriot groups and conservative groups from getting their 501(c)(3) designations. And then we see them now. You go in and you raid the president over boxes of material. And by the way, everybody in America knows the man was president of the United States. He had access to everything. Those boxes that were in Mar-a-Lago down there, those boxes, people knew that those records got boxed up. There was nobody trying to do anything nefarious. The thing that would’ve been nefarious David is if they went in there and there were no boxes. Where are the boxes?
Dave Kistler: Absolutely.
Jason Rapert: What happened to them?
Dave Kistler: Absolutely. Absolutely, Jason. And I hate to interrupt. Folks, we’re going to come back to this in segment two. We’re just getting started. And when we come back, we’re going to get into the specifics of what happened at Mar-a-Lago with our guest pastor, or excuse me, evangelist and Arkansas State Senator Jason Rapert. Our topic is When It’s Right to be Angry, There is Such a Thing as Righteous Indignation. More on that right after this very brief timeout.
Dave Kistler: Well, ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to Stand in the Gap Today. I’m Dave Kistler, joined today by co-host Pastor Joe Green. And our very special guest is Arkansas State Senator Jason Rapert. But here’s what’s neat about Jason. He’s also an evangelist and has been for over 20 years. He’s traveled the world as have I, preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, winning people to Christ. His burden is not just for the United States of America, but it’s also for the world. But like me, he has a passion as many of you do for the United States of America for where we are right now and for what is happening in our country. And so it’s a delight to have him on the program. He is also the founder and president of the National Association of Christian Lawmakers. I want to encourage you to Google that, National Association of Christian Lawmakers. Find out more about that outstanding organization and how you can become a part of it as well.
But we’re discussing this topic today When It’s Right to be Angry, There is Such a Thing as Righteous Indignation. And indeed ladies and gentlemen, there is. And as my dad used to say years ago, “I wouldn’t give you two cents for someone who couldn’t get angry about the right thing.” And so that’s why I’ve chosen this topic today.
Jason, again, I’ve watched your 14 minute video that went viral on the evening of August 8th. I’ve watched it several times. And you were angry. Those that were with us for the first segment could tell that in your voice. You stated that all liberty loving people should be the same. They should be angry as well. But we live in a woke culture where some are advocating that it’s never right for a Christian to be angry about anything. Now, I know you disagree with that. I disagree with that. But what I’d love for you to do, if you could, is take just a couple of minutes and share with our listeners today why it is completely false to adopt this idea that a Christian should never be angry about anything.
Jason Rapert: It’s false because even in the Scripture, our Lord Jesus is an example for us. When you go to John and go to chapter 2 and read through the cleansing of the temple, he made a whip of chords, okay? He made an actual whip and he drove them all out of the temple, the money changers. And he said to those who were selling doves, “Take these things away. Do not make my Father’s house a house of merchandise.” And he cleansed the temple. That was definitely an example there. You go look at Matthew chapter 16, verse 23, “He turned to Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan. You’re a stumbling block to me because you’re not setting your mind on God’s interest, but on man’s interest.” And then you go look at Mark chapter 3, verse 5 and he looked around at the Pharisees, grieved by their hardness of hearts and he said, “Stretch out your hand.” He healed the man, but he was angry. It says he would looked at them in anger, grieved by the hardness of the Pharisees.
And what I see happening gentlemen, and to all of you American patriots that are listening to us out there, and especially my Christian friends, think of what Thomas Aquinas… I had a lady sent me a wonderful quote. There’s so much history out there. And what they said to me, David, he said, “He who is not angry when there is just cause for anger is immoral. Why? Because anger looks to the good of justice. And if you can live amid injustice without anger, you are immoral as well as unjust.” That was Thomas Aquinas. And then you think about the scripture says to be angry and sin not, yes. If I had planned what I was going to say, I might not have been so passionate about it,.
But here’s what I’ve learned, David. Those that love you and know that you’re speaking the truth, say, “Jason, we love your passion.” Those that aren’t of God and dislike you said, “Man, how arrogant and mean spirited.” Well, I just want to ask all of you Americans, what’s better? A preacher that is also a politician, by the way, elected four times to the Arkansas Senate, getting up and telling you the truth and not letting all of this craziness keep me from saying it just like it needs to be said, or somebody putting on a black hood and a black mask and walking through the streets of our cities, burning buildings and beating cars and assaulting people? You see, that’s what the ungodly have been doing for years in this country. They’ve destroyed billions and billions of dollars of property. They’ve assaulted their own people. And the government has done nothing to them. But then they turn around and have people jailed right now who were standing on sidewalks on January the 6th, doing nothing but just happened to be present.
When people breached barricades, should they have breached barricades? No, they should not. But that wasn’t any more an insurrection than a man on the moon that we had on January the 6th. And then they turned the FBI onto the president of the United States, raid his house when his attorneys are actually working with him while they let thugs come in through our borders doing nothing down there on the border. And the Democrats have the audacity to put in a request for 87,000 new IRS agents to come after, guess who? The conservatives in America.
So let me ask you. It’s okay for the criminals to come across, by the way, unvaccinated and with disease and with criminal records, to come across the border pouring across the border, but yet they hire 87,000 IRS agents to come after the American people that are living right, doing right and paying the taxes while they let the people that are not citizens come through and take advantage of us?
There’s so much to talk about David, where do you start and stop? And what’s happening is that we see them. They are afraid that Donald Trump is going to run for president of the United States again. And I’ve had thousands of people say, “You know what? I was ready to move on and let’s vote for somebody else, but after seeing what they’ve done to president Donald Trump, now I’m ready for him to run again.” You see folks, you don’t have to go after people like this and destroy them when you legitimately defeated them. You just move on. What’s happening in America is the Democrats are continuing a lie that they have built, a narrative. And they have turned in one demonstration on January the 6th into an insurrection while they declared war on God and the Bible and Christians and conservatives in this country. And you can prove it through statistics.
They have done everything they can to come against what I believe is really the core word of God in this country, whether it’s coming after us in 1962, they went after prayer in the federal courts. ’63, they went after the Bible. ’73, they legalized killing millions of little babies, tearing them apart limb by limb from their mother’s womb, which is totally against God’s word. God says in Proverbs chapter 6, verse 16, that he hates six things, yea, seven are an abomination as one are hands that shed innocent blood. Then they went after the 10 commandments in the ’80s. And in 2015, what have they done? They legalized sodomy in this country. If you look in the Bible, God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for their sin. Romans chapter 1.
Brother David, I just met a transgender woman last week here in Little Rock, Arkansas. She came to know the freedom of surrendering to God in her life and has changed her whole life. Guess what? That woman was a Presbyterian pastor. She met Jesus and realized that “I’m living a lie.” And she’s turned her whole life around, David. And this country knows that whether it’s coming against Donald Trump or whether it’s coming against your kids in school trying to convince Johnny that he’s little Bonnie by next week, these people have lost their minds. And I am begging the Christians and the pastors, you must stand up. For those who know to do right and not do it, David, it is sin. And for those of you that know that this is a lie and you know that they’re hurting our country and you don’t stand up to do something, you will be held accountable for this and your life just like any other man or woman is held accountable in their life.
In Genesis 1:26-28, first chapter, first book of the Bible, God said, “You go out and multiply, replenish and fill the earth and take authority and dominion over everything in this earth.” And in America, the church has been lulled to sleep. Pastors have been not addressing these things in their pulpits. And America’s headed to hell in a hand basket if we don’t stand up and do something. I’m telling you that the country’s been on fire and I’ve got a bucket of water and I’m trying to put it out and save the nation. And I know people like you are too. We just need more of you to help.
Joe Green: Jason, those are some great points and we appreciate. Everything you said is great perspective and it’s important for us as the body of Christ, especially to understand what is happening and to be able to discern the times. I want to go back to our original topic. Let’s talk about what actually happened at Mar-a-Lago and why this is so disturbing. What in your opinion was so egregious about the actions of the Attorney General Merrick Garland and the FBI?
Jason Rapert: Well, the point is here is that by all accounts, they have been toying with president Trump for now. It’s been unrelenting. They’re constantly… He has been dealing with them. He has tons of attorneys that are working on this issue. And from what I’ve read and seen, they already have been talking about these documents. We’ve seen former prosecutors and Department of Justice officials say, “This is beyond the pale. There had to be some really good reason for you to do this.” The other thing is that I’m told that when you’ve got these warrants, the people that have been involved in them in the Department of Justice, they have to detail out what they’re going for.
And for instance, one even used an analogy. If you’re going for a document, then you don’t go diving through drawers in the person’s household where that document could not be, if you understand. You don’t go through a jewelry box if it’s not going to be big enough to hold a document that you actually have the warrant to be looking for. We’re told that they ran everybody out. Why could not an attorney or a family member be present while they go through their materials in their household? You bring suspicion when you are doing something you don’t want anybody else to see. That’s a problem. And I’m told they even cracked his safe or they broke into his safe for this.
Dave Kistler: Yeah. Jason, hold that thought right there just a second.
Jason Rapert: Yeah.
Dave Kistler: I apologize to jumping on you, but we’ve got a break that we’ve got to go to. But ladies and gentlemen, what Jason is saying is exactly right. I have been to Mar-a-Lago. I’ve visited there. I’m not sure if Jason has. But there were parts of that home that had no relation whatsoever to the documents the FBI claimed they were looking for, and yet they raided every aspect of that property which was absolutely wrong. Well, ladies and gentlemen, after the timeout, we’re going to come back with a lot more with our special guest, Jason Rapert. I don’t want you to miss it, When It’s Right to be Angry. That’s our topic on Stand in the Gap Today. We’ll be right back.
James Comey: From the group of 30,000 emails returned to the State Department in 2014, 110 emails in 52 email chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was top secret at the time they were sent, 36 of those chains contained secret information at the time, and eight contained confidential information at the time. That’s the lowest level of classification.
Dave Kistler: Well, ladies and gentlemen, what you were just listening to was the voice of former and now disgraced FBI Director, James Comey. His comments came on July 5th, 2016 when he reported on Hillary Clinton’s, shall we call it email fiasco? Something which he as FBI director determined without the authority to do so was not prosecutable. Now, you may remember he listed the things you just heard and a whole lot more, but at the end of all of that said, that there’s no reasonable individual that would prosecute her for these offenses. Well, my question as I was screaming at the television on that day, “Why not?” Of course these are prosecutable. She was the person responsible for keeping US secrets. She was responsible to have a government email server. She had none of that. She had her own private server. And so she was as guilty as she could possibly be and deserved to be prosecuted for crimes, but yet she was not.
And now we have the 45th President of the United States of America working with the FBI, working with officials to get information contained in 15, 20 boxes to them if they deserved it, if it was theirs and their right to have it. He was working with them and yet his home was raided in this heavy handed fashion. Merely, I believe because of political expediency and an attempt to try to keep him from running for president of the United States again in 2024.
Dave Kistler: Well, with all of that, I want to welcome you back to Stand in the Gap Today. I’m Dave Kistler along with cohost Joe Green and our special guest, Jason Rapert. Jason again is an Arkansas state senator, a sitting senator. He is also a full-time evangelist. He is founder and president of the National Association of Christian Lawmakers. And I will tell you this, I am just being inundated with comments coming in from listeners as to how much they appreciate what Jason is saying today. He’s speaking truth. He’s speaking it passionately, which is exactly what we need right now in the United States of America.
Jason, I want to go here again. Thank you for being on the program, but we are in deep trouble in this nation. We’re in uncharted waters. That’s so because of the results of what happened at the Mar-a-Lago raid, but a whole lot more that has been going on and is continuing to go on in the United States of America. I want to ask you this question because I’m seeing something, I’m not going to say what I’m seeing, I want to get your perspective, but I’m seeing a particular thing in our country right now. I’m just wondering if from your vantage point, are Americans as a whole sensing and seeing that we are in an incredibly dangerous time? Or do you see the American people as still being oblivious to the times in which we’re in?
Jason Rapert: I think we’re at a time when both is happening simultaneously. There is absolutely danger with apathy and lethargy and ignorance that is allowing this people to take advantage in our country. This is what they want. They are the dangers that we see. I see spiritual decline, moral decline, and irresponsibility for people to stand up. I think that you see both happening. It just happens to be this moment. While at the same time, there are millions of people finally realizing, “My goodness. This is out of control.” And some people say, “Well, you’re overemphasizing, you’re exaggerating.” But I’m telling you, all you got to go do is back and look at history. This is the same thing that people try to do and have tried to do in every country or nation where they try to take over by force.
Remember, Adolph Hitler was elected by the German people. He then began to use force against the people of Germany and slowly took over and turned that into an evil war machine that ended up killing millions of people across the continent of Europe and beyond because World War II being unleashed. And I’m telling you, for all of the fascist comments that trying to call conservatives fascists, et cetera, these people truly have the mark of fascists and Marxists and socialists. We’ve been trying to proclaim this to people and tell them to wake up. Brother David, they’ve got to wake up to the fact that this has gone too far.
And you played that clip on Comey. I got to say, as I close my comment on this, the hypocrisy is so revealing here, double standards beyond double standards. And this is why that we now have a situation, and I’m begging, there are 7,383 state legislators in America in all of our 50 capitals. That 7,300 needs to come alive and stand up against an out of control federal government in the hands of the Democrat Marxists that have it now, Joe Biden and Kami Harris, and I apologize, but that’s the way I feel about Kamala, Joe Biden and Kami Harris are doing everything they can to undermine the spirit of freedom in the country. I got a lot more to say about it, but I don’t want to take up too many question times here.
Joe Green: Well, we appreciate it, Jason. All your comments are so spot on. I always think about Saul Alinsky and his rules for radicals. One of the strategies they use is accuse your opponent of doing what you’re actually doing. And it seems like that’s very much prevalent in the political realm today. But Jason, what are the areas of chief concern to you as a pastor legislator and patriotic American? We had a deeply troubling election in 2020. We had abuse of executive power by Joe Biden, his administration. We’ve seen parents viciously attacked by this administration for their speaking up on behalf of their children. We’ve seen absolute insanity embraced in the form of our sports programs and allowing biological men to compete against women. Are these the things that you’re most concerned with? Or is there something else that is most deeply concerning to you in this environment that we’re in right now?
Jason Rapert: Well, everything that you’re talking about are symptoms of ungodliness we have allowed in this country by apathy of the church because we haven’t stood up and taken authority. You’ve got too many ungodly leaders passing ungodly laws leading to ungodly results. This is why we formed the first National Association of Christian Lawmakers in the history of the entire country they tell us. Historians, we never had had one before. And we have Christians that we’ve knitted together, serving in local state and federal officer that are trying to take a stand. And let me just tell you what Charles Finney said. “The time has come that Christians must vote for honest men and take consistent ground in politics. God cannot sustain this free and blessed country, which we love and pray for unless the church will take right ground.” And here’s the key. It seems sometimes as if the foundations of the nation are becoming rotten and Christians seem to act as if they think God does not see what they do in politics.”
And I tell people when I’m preaching, and by the way, you said people are commenting. We probably just need to hit the road gentlemen and have an old fashioned revival of spirit and truth in this country because people are searching for it. They’re crying out for it. And when they hear it, it resonates with them. And what Charles Finney was saying right there, and I’ve told them in churches, “Don’t come in here and grab this altar and come down to the front and cry and say, ‘You love Jesus’ and then go out and vote on Tuesday for people that are killing little babies and turning this country into modern day Sodom and Gomorrah.” See, the Democrats have lifted up Sodom and Gomorrah like it’s a goal to be achieved rather than a sin to be shunned. It’s destroying children. It’s destroying families. We have to stand up and fight back for what is right like it’s truly the end of time, because for some people it is, David. And pastors have got to stand up and preach the truth.
Dave Kistler: You know, Jason, you’re 100% correct. The reason we’re getting such an overwhelming response today is because you’re just speaking that which is truthful, you’re speaking that which is right, you’re speaking that which people want to hear coming across their pulpit. But tragically, across the length and breadth of the United States of America, pastors, preachers, evangelists, God help them, will not stand up and involve themselves in that, which is deemed “political.” I believe as a preacher of the gospel, as an evangelist, I have a divine obligation to address those things that are deemed “political,” because they’re really moral. They’re biblical issues. The life and death of the unborn is not a political issue. It is a moral issue. It’s a Bible issue. And so the fact that people are responding so well today is because they understand what you’re saying is true.
Jason, I’ve got one more question to get in before we have to take a break and then go into our final segment. And man, it is a delight. It’s like inhaling pure oxygen to have you on the program today. Not just for us as hosts, but for those that are listening as well. But I do need to ask you this question. I know over a million people have viewed your video from Monday a week ago. Most of it, in fact, the vast majority of it has been overwhelmingly positive, but I know you’ve had to have some attack come your way because of what you said in that video and because of your stand down through all these years. What has been the negative response and how have you chosen to deal with that?
Jason Rapert: I have been able to withstand by the power of the Holy Ghost. That’s the name of our ministry, David, is Holy Ghost Ministries. And you can find that online. Here’s what I want to tell you on this. You don’t even know all this, I don’t think. But I passed the nation’s first heartbeat bill in the country on March the 6th of 2013, and now look what happened now that Texas passed it. The 14th one saving thousands of baby. And when I passed that bill is when I got a taste of real threat. I’ve literally had the left, the anti-God people in this country, they’ve threatened to rape my daughters, rape my wife, burn my house, drive here and consume me alive. They’ve threatened all these things. They’ve literally called me everything, accused me of everything, attacked our business, attacked our ministry. I am the only state legislator in America today being sued by the American Atheists in federal court, been suing me for five years. I also passed the 10 Commandments monument, Brother Davis.
Dave Kistler: Jason, holds your thought right there if you can hold your thought. I want to go further into that. But ladies and gentlemen, again, my phone is blowing up with people commenting about how much they love the conversation today with Jason Rapert. Folks, when we come back in just a couple of minutes, we’re going to go into our Solution Segment and we’re going to be discussing with Jason where do we go from here. You’re not going to want to miss this coming right up right after this very brief time out.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, again, welcome back to Stand in the Gap Today. This is Dave Kistler, joined by co-host pastor Joe Green. Today’s program has been absolutely a delight. Our special guest is Jason Rapert. He is an evangelist, has been for over 20 years. He is a sitting senator in the Arkansas State Senate. He’s also the founder and the president of the National Association of Christian Lawmakers. He has an evangelistic ministry called Holy Ghost Ministries. I encourage you to Google these things and look them up and find out more about our guest today, Jason Rapert.
And I do have to say this folks, this never happens when I’m hosting a program, but it’s happening today. My phone is literally lighting up with regular listeners who are commenting. I just want to read one of these comments that just came in. He said, “This brother is like you, Dave. I’m loving every word of it. I’ve got to find out where he preaches because I would move to attend his church.” And Jason, that’s a gentleman who lives in the state of Pennsylvania.
But what’s happening, folks, is this. People are appreciating a man who knows what he believes. He stands where God stands. He speaks with common sense. He speaks with fortitude. He speaks with courage. He’s not afraid to address the issues of our day and do so unapologetically for too long in the United States of America. Men who’ve stood in the pulpit have been passive, passive when they should be speaking in black and white. And what I have loved since I was first introduced about a week and a day ago to Jason Rapert, I’ve loved the fact that he just tells it like it is. In many ways, he’s a modern day Elijah, a modern day John the Baptist, just calling it out, speaking truth to power and doing it as a sitting member of the Arkansas State Senate, as well as being an evangelist.
Jason, again, what a delight to have you on the program. There’s two questions we want to get to. I’m going to pose one. My friend, Joe Green, is going to pose the other. But I want to go right to this because we call segment four our Solution Segment. What can and must the American people be doing right now in light of the thuggish actions and out of control federal government has been perpetrating and the Biden, I’m going to put it in quotation marks, I believe that’s an “illegitimate” administration, but the Biden administration has been doing as well? What must the American people be doing right now to save our country?
Jason Rapert: Yes, sir. What we can do to save our nation. I want to say to you as well, thanks for sharing those comments. I actually have tears in my eyes, David, because I love this nation and I love this country and I wanted to be here for our children and our grandchildren. It’s encouraging to me to know that there are men like you that are putting voices like mine out here to people because we have to unite.
So here’s some things we need to be doing. Number one, you need to unite with people like Stand in the Gap Radio and be listening to this radio program every day that you can as they’re giving you information that you probably won’t hear anywhere else. So you’ve got to stay plugged into people that are speaking the truth in love. And that doesn’t mean that the truth is going to be nice. Sometimes the truth is going to be rough, but you’ve got to hear the truth. The truth will set you free. And so you’ve got to stay connected, number one.
Number two, please, pastors, tell your people to go register and to vote. They claim statistically that some 80 million evangelical Christians, they claim in America, only half of them, David, are registered to vote and only half of those actually go vote. This is telling you friend that only a quarter of the church is actually using their right, and I think their duty, the privilege and responsibility of voting, to get out and make that difference. To compensate for the cheat that’s trying to happen in the blue cities across this country, we’ve got to come out in numbers they’ve never seen before. If the church would stand up and all go vote, you would change Congress in one cycle and you could elect people up and down the ballots all across America. And we are training them to do that. All they got to do is go to christianlawmakers.com to connect for that.
But you also have to raise your voice right now in defense of the innocent. As I mentioned before the break, I literally have had to come in and be… I was subpoenaed to give a deposition by five groups at one time in an eight and a half hour deposition. Here they were, the American Atheists, the American Humanist, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, the ACLU and the Satanic Temple all at the same time, these people are not out just to get Donald Trump. The reason they’re after Donald Trump is because he is representing the people of God in the country.
Now, he is not a saint, but he has been used by God. We chose the most pro-life president we ever had in the United States. If it weren’t for him appointing those three justices, abortion would still be running across this country. And I will tell you, abortion is one of the strongest false gods ever raised up in this country. And I’m proud that I passed the trigger bill in Arkansas and 14 other states have done the same. That’s ended abortion virtually in all of our states right now. But we’ve got some states that are killing them up to birth, brother. So you’ve got to be connected with fellow believers. You got to be united, not only on social media, but directly with your websites because the cancel culture is trying to squelch their voice.
Number two, get out and register and go vote. You got a chance in November to make the difference. By the way, the first speaker of the United States House of Representatives was Speaker Muhlenberg, a pastor and a politician. Folks, they have told you a lie. Just I challenge you. This is what my brother, Bob McEwen, former Congressman said, “Name me one book out of the 66 books in the Bible that’s not either written by a politician, to a politician, or about a politician.” Who do they think Moses was? He went into Pharaoh and said, “Let my people go.” They have lied to you and tried to convince you that we cannot be people of God and be involved in politics. Well, I’m going to tell you something. The Founding Fathers based every right we have in the country on rights that were given to us by our Creator. You’ve got to raise your voice. You’ve got to go vote.
Now, let me tell you something. When you can’t make them see the light, you need to let them feel the heat. And right now the 535 in Washington, I’m talking about the 100 US senators and the 435 in the House, they need to feel your heat. You need to email them. You need to wear their staff out. Let me tell you something. You wear them out for a solid week, they feel worn out. You need to clog those lines up and say, “Stand up for truth in this country.” Stop the insanity in this country. Melt down those phone lines in Washington, DC. Take over the internet and speak the truth to them.
I know we’re running out of time, Brother David, but I’m going to tell you something. What we’ve done here today, God willing it gets spread around this country. I’ve committed myself full time to standing up for what God says in trying to save the country. Any place where there’s a willing body, a willing pulpit and a willing group of people that says we’re willing to stand up and do what we can to save the nation, I know that you and me and Pastor Joe and everybody that’s been on this program, we will do it for you, because now is the time to stand up and be salt and light in our nation. If we don’t stand against these two major false gods of abortion and homosexuality, America won’t survive it. We’ve got to do it.
Dave Kistler: You are exactly right. You are exactly right, Jason. And ladies and gentlemen, I want to jump in. Man, I wish we had two more hours to go to continue speaking with Jason Rapert. He is a sitting Arkansas State Senator. He is a full-time evangelist, has been for 20 years. He is the founder and the president of the National Association of Christian Lawmakers. I want to give you a couple of websites to check out before we exit the program today. Go to christianlawmakers.com, christianlawmakers.com. You can find out about the National Association of Christian Lawmakers there. And how you can be a part, go to holyghostministries.org, holyghostministries.org, and find out about Jason’s evangelistic ministry and his travels literally around the globe. And then to this third website that we haven’t even had a chance to touch on, and that’s americanhistoryandheritage.org, americanhistoryandheritage.org. That is another organization that Jason has founded that deals with American history.
Listen, ladies and gentlemen, this is our moment. This is our moment. You’ve heard a clarion call today to stand up, speak out, let your voice be heard, or we stand to lose everything in this country. If we speak up in the power of God’s Holy Spirit, all of this can be turned around for the glory of God and we can experience what America desperately needs, and that’s another great awakening. Let’s labor to that end for the glory of God. Join us tomorrow 23 hours from now for next installment of Stand in the Gap Today. Till then, stand up for truth where you are.
