” ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.” -Zechariah 4:6
The gnarly giants in the land are about to fall. Just as David stood before Goliath and took him down with a sling and a stone in the name of Almighty God, believers in Jesus are facing modern giants in every area of our society. As we stand firmly in faith, we are about to watch these giants topple over, making way for the children of God to take back the areas of influence and reclaim our promised lands. At this moment, the giants are towering over us. They are mocking, gloating and threatening believers. Those who are weak in faith are fleeing the scene, like Saul’s army. We must stand fearlessly like David did, declaring in faith, “All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands” (1 Samuel 17:47). For though it currently looks impossible, we are about to see these giants fall before our very eyes. In fact, we are starting to see this now, for those of us who have eyes to see and ears to hear. Giants are beginning to fall all across this land. It will not be accomplished by might nor by power, but by the Holy Spirit (Zechariah 4:6). Can you see it?
Though I could focus on any number of areas where this is taking place, let’s look at the Giants of Big Tech. We all know who they are, but Twitter and Facebook are particularly on thin ice. Their outright and blatant censorship of Christians and conservatives is at an all time high. Twitter has purged its platform of thousands of accounts since early January, which has initiated a mass exodus from its platform. Facebook is a little more sneaky. They create algorithms to deboost posts containing Christian content or anything that has to do with conservative politics. These platforms have become notorious for shadow banning people. This causes people to simply think that no one is interested in interacting with their posts, when in reality, no one is seeing their posts. Let’s also not forget about Facebook “jail” and their beloved “Fact Checkers,” which aim to keep people in line. I have personally observed prophecies being fact checked by Facebook, claiming they are false. For Christians everywhere, this is both laughable and concerning at the same time. How can unbelievers tell us the Holy Spirit is lying? Unbelievers are under the power of Satan and all he does is lie (John 8:44). Believers in Jesus know the truth and should not rely on worldly “Fact Checkers” to tell them what “truth” is. Jesus is “the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6). Instead, we must stand our ground without apology and shine brightly with the goodness of God.
On the morning of January 14, 2021, the Holy Spirit spoke to me about the Big Tech Giants. Moments before I woke up, I heard in my spirit, “I did it. It was me. I did it.” When I heard this, I saw a picture of the Tower of Babel. All the people were working together to build a tower to heaven. God caused a confusion to their language and he scattered them over the face of the earth because they were succeeding in their pride (Genesis 11:1-9). I was a little confused when I woke up, but I knew almost immediately this word was about the Big Tech platforms of Facebook and Twitter. It has been difficult to discern the truth from lies online for a long time now, but on January 6th, this became nearly impossible. Everyone seemed to be totally confused by what was really happening in Washington, DC. This confusion was running rampant especially on these social media platforms. As Twitter and Facebook began to ban accounts, people started scattering to smaller tech platforms like Parler, MeWe, Gab, CloutHub, Telegram and Signal. The Big Tech Giants have become like the modern day Tower of Babel. You can basically find all of your friends and family in one place online. However, since January 6th, our “language” is being confused and a scattering to other platforms to find free speech and share the truth openly has begun. The pride of Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey and those at the top of these companies, is leading to this downfall. They are trying to play God. By working to shut down, silence, censor and ban the voices of God’s people, they are finding themselves trying to silence God himself. God will not be silenced! These Tech Giants are being humbled by God at this time. They are falling from their places of control and prominence. This is giving way to the rise of many of these smaller social media platforms. The people will no longer tolerate silencing of the truth. The Silent Majority has now become the Loud Majority, and they are roaring back with action.
What does this mean? What action can we take? It’s time to build the kingdom of God on earth (Matthew 6:10). Let’s support other Christians who are truthful and building the kingdom as well. Support Christian businesses and politicians. Launch your own creative ventures that God had called you to. Spend some time looking for social media platforms that support free speech and join them to connect with other believers. Gab, DingDash and United Hive are social media platforms which have all been created by Christians. My husband, Gabriel Jackson, launched the United Hive social media platform a couple of years ago, which focuses on uniting the Body of Christ around the world through evangelism (www.unitedhive.com). DingDash was created by one of our friends as a secure platform for persecuted Christians. Gab was created by Andrew Torba, a strong and outspoken Christian, who is dedicated to protecting free speech on his platform. You may eventually need to leave the larger platforms. It may be a good idea to save all your data now. We can also subscribe to people’s websites, podcasts, e-mail lists and blogs directly. Please feel free to follow my blog now if you have not already. We can overcome this time of censorship by intentionally connecting with like-minded believers and standing on the truth together. God is with us. We will not fall. These Giants are coming down… not by our own strength or might, but by the Spirit of God. Let’s rejoice! Our victory is near!
