PASTOR CHE AHN SUES CALIFORNIA: PARENTS, PASTORS, AND BUSINESSES BEWARE!

Father, we ask that your create a hedge of protection around the U.S. and protect us from our enemies.

“First they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the Socialists and I did not speak out because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.”   –  Martin Niemoller, German Lutheran Pastor arrested and confined to Dachau camp but released in 1945 by the Allies.

When Jesus was asked about the end times and what were some of the signposts, he cited persecution, deception and division at the top of the list (Matt. 24).

Do you love the resources IFA has to offer? Share with your friends!

If the people of God are not prepared amidst the escalation of demonic activity, apostasy and hostility, multitudes will be offended at God. Jesus warned, “Then many will fall away… because iniquity will abound, the love of many will grow cold” (Matt. 24:10;12). Lawlessness leads to lovelessness!

Dr. Che Ahn, senior leader of Harvest Rock Church in Pasadena, California; founder of the Harvest International Ministry (H.I.M.) with churches in 70 nations and 162 churches in California; and, International Chancellor of Wagner University recently faced fierce opposition from Governor Gavin Newsom to prohibit Christians singing in church services and hosting Bible studies and fellowship gatherings in homes! Knowing this has implications for Christians across America, Che prayed, sought counsel and knew it was time to stand up to the former mayor of leftist-leaning San Francisco.As one of my dearest friends for over 45 years, Che sat down recently with me to share the lessons learned during this journey. During four 15-minute “Here’s the Deal” podcasts on the Charisma Podcast Network Che explains in detail what led up to this defining moment as well as its’ implications for Christians across America.

Standing Strong on Biblical Grounds

Che is working with Mat Staver and Liberty Counsel, a Christian ministry protecting believers and their legal rights in disputes that arise such as this. Mat is a brilliant attorney as well as Liberty Counsel’s founder and legal director. Their team and Che will work to confront the governor and the state of California in this horrendous example of overreach and violation of constitutional rights.

Listen how Mat describes what is happening: “All home-based small group Bible studies and private worship among friends and family are illegal for 80% of the California population! The same order that bans religious gatherings in private homes allows and even encourages the insane anarchist riots, blocking highways and destroying city blocks… In California you can stand shoulder to shoulder with Marxists singing about killing cops, but you cannot worship with freedom in your own home. Don’t let America’s churches be driven underground!”

What’s happening in California is a foreshadowing of what is coming the way of Christians in these end times prior to the return of Jesus Christ. Leftist politicians, media, celebrities, educators and heretical religious leaders are all being manipulated by demonic forces to try and thwart advancement of the gospel of the kingdom at the close of the age.

Multitudes of Christians and Christian leaders have been deceived into believing that there is to be a “separation of church and state“ which means we steer clear of any engagement with our culture. Quoting a letter from Thomas Jefferson to inquiring Baptists, the enemy has misled millions down a path of appeasement and retreat from marketplace involvement. Tragically some leaders say, “We’re called to preach the gospel not get involved with ‘political’ issues like gay marriage, abortion the LGBTQ agenda or socialism. They’re too controversial…invite death threats…cause decline in members and giving.”

What is currently unfolding in California is intended by God to inspire Christians to discover the truth on what it means to be “salt” and “light” in our society which prevent societal rot. Christians are not called to be silent bystanders but rather active participants through prayer, lifestyle evangelism, voting and civic engagement.

Lawsuits are Unscriptural?

In my almost 50 years of Christian ministry, I have found myself involved in three lawsuits. Like Che Ahn, I am grateful for clear biblical teaching on this issue which becomes increasingly important for us in our post-Christian, lawsuit-ready culture.

Space does not permit a comprehensive treatment of this topic so I will recommend a classic resource by Christian attorney Ken Sande which has helped people in America and abroad. The book is entitled, “The Peacemaker – A Biblical Guide to Resolving Personal Conflict” and is available on Amazon.

In his book, Ken addresses the subject, “When is it right to go to court?” He dispels the myth that Christians can never resort to a court of law to resolve disputes!

Explaining the scope of 1 Corinthians 6 which addresses lawsuits, Mr. Sande explains the view that the Bible forbids any and all lawsuits between people who profess to be Christians is erroneous. He states that it is “not supported by the express language of the passage, nor is it consistent with the rest of Scripture, which clearly indicates that God has established civil courts and expects his people to respect authority and cooperate with them in appropriate situations” (Appendix D).

Hope for the Hopeless

As an apostolic leader who has traveled extensively throughout the world in leadership training and church planting, Dr. Ahn addresses many relevant topics for Christians in the midst of our turmoil today. In a day in which we need all the encouragement we can get, learn from the lessons of this well-traveled man of God who has been successful in both family and ministry while impacting people on a global stage.

Here’s the Deal: In a day of cataclysmic change, Marxist upheaval and an avalanche of deceptive schemes intended to take down America as a Judeo-Christian nation, God is using extraordinary ambassadors like Dr. Che Ahn to awaken us and advance His kingdom purposes in our day.

  1. A governor of a state is not appointed or given the right to have jurisprudence on spiritual matters which he knows next to nothing. For the governor to enact such a law against spiritual matters is ludicrous, to say the least.

  2. SHO’AH – “MASS SLAUGHTER”

    The past is not past

    But ever present.

    History still points us

    To great lessons unlearned,

    Such as the Holocaust

    (The Sho’ah – “mass slaughter”),

    Where fiery ovens

    Continuously burned.

    Systematic evil,

    State-sponsored evil,

    Mass killing, mass murder

    Without neutrality,

    Discrimination,

    Incarceration,

    Annihilation,

    Inhumanity,

    Intolerance,

    Indifference,

    Great malice,

    Bloody gore.

    The past is not past

    But ever present

    Knocking, knocking

    On the world’s door.

  3. Praise God Pastor Che Ahn for standing. That’s what we are to do. The battle is the Lord’s but we must put our faith into action and action we will in Jesus name. Faith over fear.

Every one needs to get serious about their on walk of Holiness and repent. And everyone needs to speak up and take stand if things are to ever change before all our rights are taken away!! You need to become a warrior for the Lord. The days of pew complacent , go thru the motion church is over.

  5. Bless Dr. Che Ahn and give him Your Favor, Lord. Protect him and cause his message to bring alive the dead hearts in Your Church. Stir us to action, Father. Give us Your holy boldness to fight the enemy and share Your love with the lost, in Jesus Name.

  6. I could really use some understanding here.I’m sure like half of the planet you have heard the statement John MacArthur gave recently which some like myself have found confusing, then in viewing one of your services I noticed people not wearing masks or social distancing so my question is…are we being played, is this virus real or not? Here is my response to what MacArthur said, I would really appreciate a response please!!! The 3 Hebrew children were being asked to bow down and worship a statue, Daniel was was being forbidden to ask counsel of his God. Paul and the apostles were forbidden to teach in the name of Jesus Christ. Now maybe I’m missing something here but I have not heard any government official or health care official forbid any Christian from worshiping or teaching in the name of Christ. Masks, hand washing, safe distancing and limited gatherings are all that I’ve heard asked of not only the church but of other establishments, in fact they have shut down many establishments now why they leave liquor stores open I don’t know, that’s not the issue here. What I’m saying AGAIN is preaching, teaching and the encouraging of the saints and fellowship has not stopped thanks to social media and the cell phone ( oh and neither has giving, you can do that on line too, lol ) and for those who are shut in the churches responsibility is to minister to them. I really think John should save the hard line stance for when the church really comes under attack because we haven’t seen anything yet.

    1. Safe distancing, limited gatherings, and mask wearing were not enforced at all the protests. The virus has spread as a result of all these political protests. Yet, the protest are still allowed to continue with hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of people touching each other. If people are allowed to protest without social distancing, then church should be allowed as well.

    2. Jesus command us to go out and preach good news,baptisting people, laying hands to the sick in His name and casting out demons.Explain how Christians gona fulfill this commands from their master online.The fight is all about shutting Christ mission on earth.We need to open our eyes and fight for freedom of worship

  7. Thank you Pastor Che Ahn for your courage to stand for what you believe in and for the Word. As this crisis in our country continues, we need more pastors and Christians to take a stand and pray against these demonic forces. I’m praying for our churches.

  8. I’m with you Bro Che!… you stand in the gap for many… millions… if we are silent here, there will be silence everywhere. This is not going to happen ‘on our watch’

  9. Father God may we become hedge builders. Ezekiel 22:30 God you stated you are looking for hedge builders. Ecclesiastes 10:8 states “if the hedge is broken a snake will enter and bite”. Psalm 80:12 states “why have you broken down the hedge?” 30 times in the old testament, God altered his action because of what the people did to build the hedge, or stand in the gap. Father we want to be a hedge builder, we want to stand in the gap for our communities, our nation, our families, to turn their eyes towards you and seek your will and do your will. 30 times in the old testament, God altered his action because of what the people did to build the hedge, or stand in the gap. Father we want to be a hedge builder we want to stand in the gap for your will to be done on earth as it is in heaven, I plead the blood of Jesus over our nation, our familie,s our communitie,s our President in Jesus name amen.

  10. For Dr. Che Ahn and the Liberty Team, grace and favor and a mighty outpouring of God’s seven-fold Spirit, “the Spirit of Yahweh shall rest upon (them), the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might (skill), the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Yahweh” (Isaiah‬ ‭11:2‬), and the the Spirit of revelation (Ephesians 1:7) of who God is, His deity and divinity, and His plan for overcoming evil be upon them. ‭Lord guide them to protect our right to assemble and worship You. Expose the manipulation of fear to control the people. Expose the truth about the COVID-19, the waning of its spread, effective treatments, and deceptive “probable” infections and death counts. Expose its source and sinister purpose to bring down America, to stop President Trump from serving a second term. In Jesus’ name I break the evil stronghold, the curse of COVID-19, a virus manipulated as biological warfare. I release our nation and the world from its evil power to deceive and harm us. “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).
    Let there be a worldwide outcry for truth, justice, and the preservation of our liberties and freedom. The freedom to worship and preach the gospel. Lord help Dr Ahn to raise worldwide awareness and repentance from our sins and our need to worship You and love one another. I decree and declare that what the enemy meant for evil, God will use for good to usher in the greatest outpouring of God’s seven-fold Spirit of truth and righteous. Open the eyes, ears, and hearts of all Americans and the world to see Your glory manifested through President Trump, whom You have chosen to successfully serve a second term in order to push down and break the back of the evil atheist and false religion of socialism and its spirit of delusion.
    Lord give President Trump and his administration that seven-fold anointing of Your Spirit to fulfill Your will in America and abroad, to raise up our economy, to heal the harm caused by the virus and to hold all culprits using the pandemic to spread fear to control us fully accountable. Remove all these evil leaders from their positions of influence from the Supreme Court justices to city councilmen and raise up righteous leaders across America to abolish evil laws and establish laws aligned with our Constitution. Also, expose all false religious leaders, wolves in sheep’s cloaking, expose and remove them from every pulpit.
    Let the greatest outpouring of Your Holy Spirit come upon us here in America and abroad. Bless JerUSAlem. We are in this spiritual battle together. Open the eyes of our Jewish siblings to embrace their Messiah so we can bring in the Greatest Harvest of souls into Your Kingdom. In the mighty name of Jesus, Yeshua, our Lord and Savior, Son of GOD, and Mighty Warrior I pray. AMEN!
    A prayer from a fellow Californian.

  11. Thomas Jefferson has been given a bad name by all the ‘separation of Church and State’ crowd. What Jefferson intended as a protection for churches from state encroachment has been turned into an excuse to force feed the doctrine of secular humanism on the culture. Thankfully we still have rights as American Citizens under the rule of law. Paul appealed to Roman laws as a Roman Citizen when agitated opponents and government officials wanted him flogged. He even demanded a public apology for the act, since the flogging was done publicly, and received it! (Acts 16:19 – 39) So it is appropriate that Liberty Counsel and Pastor Che (as well as other pastors being advocated for by LC) appeal for their rights to be honored. I pray the rights of Californians will be restored, but if they are not I pray for more creative solutions to the assembly together. (Maybe even like the one reported by the Gateway Pundit: https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/08/christian-church-decides-meet-walmart-since-government-wouldnt-allow-meet-church-watch-happened/

      1. 🙂 Thank you.. Then I have a feeling you’ll love the creativity of these Christians worshiping in a casino, of all places (and no, this is not the Babylon Bee, though Disrn is connected: Evangelicals for Trump:2020) You’ll need to page down to the Twitter feed, (and you get a brief clip) .

        Praise God for the continuing creativity of his people. Whether you’re a fan of President Trump or not, some respect for the creativity involved here is in order.

  12. Father-please allow Pastor Che favor and wisdom even in the obvious den of lions he’s facing. Protect and guide him through this and let him have amazing victory over it and let him lead the way for others such as himself to do likewise by Your mighty right hand, in Jesus Name amen.
