RT Kendall: Kavanaugh Attack Is From Satanic World

by | Oct 1, 2018 | Blogs, The Strang Report

As controversy continues to swirl around Brett Kavanaugh since his hearing, several prominent charismatic leaders have spoken up in his defense, including Tim Hill, Samuel Rodriguez and Paula White-Cain. They see the sexual-assault accusations against Kavanaugh as fierce spiritual warfare that Christians must combat with intercession.

“We need to remember that we are battling the powers of wickedness that are the same as the ones that fed off of the shedding of innocent blood during the days of Jezebel,” prophetic voice Cindy Jacobs says. “Spirits such as Molech and Jezebel are still at work to influence the political process.”

Best-selling author and well-respected theologian R.T. Kendall shared with me in an interview his spiritual insight into the situation.

“I just pray that Judge Kavanaugh does get endorsed,” Kendall told me. “I think he’s a brilliant choice by President Trump. And what is going on at the moment to derail him, to me, is from the satanic world. Satan doesn’t want anybody like that in the Supreme Court. And it would give a great advantage to the views that are most closely akin to Scripture.”

I find Kendall’s insight compelling, especially since he is not only a good friend but also perhaps my favorite Bible teacher. He received his doctorate at Oxford University. And although that was his primary reason for moving to London many years ago, God opened up a surprise opportunity for him there to pastor Westminster Chapel for 25 years. I’ve been blessed to attend several services there.

But Kendall is not only a phenomenal preacher; he’s a prolific writer as well. When I asked him how many books he’s written, he wouldn’t answer but said instead, “That’s like the sin of David numbering the people.” Suffice it to say, he’s written many books, though I think the one that has impacted me the most is Total Forgiveness. Many have read that book and seen their lives transformed by Kendall’s teaching.

I’m pleased to say Charisma House has published several of his books, including The Presence of God, Whatever Happened to the Gospel and his latest, Popular in Heaven, Famous in Hell.

Kendall says the idea for his latest book started several years ago when he was invited to preach in a particular church. He crafted a sermon he felt the congregation needed to hear, but he was concerned the congregation would not appreciate it. He called one of his friends, John Paul Jackson—who is now in heaven—and expressed his concern.

“And John Paul said, ‘I always ask, “Will it be popular in heaven?”‘” Kendall says. “… And I was gripped by that phrase: ‘Will it be popular in heaven?’ And I realized we should make decisions that make the angels smile, the sainted dead rejoice.”

The second half of his book title came years before when one of his mentors, Rolfe Barnard, preached a sermon called “A Man Who Was Known in Hell.” The sermon comes from Acts 19, when the sons of Sceva started casting out demons as if it were a game. When they rebuked one particular demon in the name of Jesus, that evil spirit replied, “Jesus I know, and I know Paul, but who are you?” and proceeded to beat the men.

“We’re not known in hell because we don’t disturb the devil,” Kendall says. “We don’t do anything that terrifies Satan. … I cannot think of anything more wonderful than to be a threat to the devil and that I would be famous in hell. And that has been my goal. I would rather be famous in hell than famous on the earth.”

If more believers had that mindset, imagine how much more God’s kingdom would expand! We don’t have to sit back and watch the news unfold, including the Kavanaugh hearing.

Unfortunately, many Christians refuse to get involved in politics and instead hide within their prayer groups, waiting for Jesus to return. But, in my opinion, that worldview is completely unbiblical. In fact, that’s one of the reasons I wrote God and Donald Trump and now its sequel, Trump Aftershock. I wanted to share the untold story of God’s hand in Trump’s election and what our president has accomplished since then.

My main point in Trump Aftershock is that if Trump’s election was an earthquake, then all his pro-Christian decisions since then are the aftershocks. The book releases Nov. 6, but you can click here to pre-order it now on Amazon. In the meantime, visit trumpaftershock.com to read sample of the book free!

I hope that as believers read Trump Aftershock, they see just how important it is to intercede for our nation and vote for biblical values. If every Christian did that, just think what we could accomplish in the spiritual realm. Listen to my interview with R.T. Kendall below and learn how you can live a life that makes heaven applaud and the devil tremble.
