Godspeak Pastor Rob McCoy: Remembering our roots—Celebrating Thanksgiving

By Michael Hernandez

NEWBURY PARK—”We are finished with (this) tyranny. We are going to enjoy Thanksgiving and worship our God,” said Godspeak Calvary Pastor Rob McCoy at Sunday’s in-person service. “I can’t wait to have a wonderful big (Thanksgiving) party that is going to go beyond 10 p.m.

“We are still standing because men and women have a spine and continue to push back. If we fold, we’re going to have to explain to the generation to come, that on our watch, we surrendered the greatest nation to tyranny. 

“If you say, ‘I comply with the tyranny, in order to preach the gospel,’ then I really wonder what gospel you are preaching? Because, while you comply with the tyranny, your neighbors are being destroyed and babies are being murdered.

“Discipleship is understanding how to contend. We are to contend in the public square for every one of these issues: on behalf of our children, our businesses, and our livelihood. We don’t appreciate liberty until we have lost it.

“Man seeks to enslave others and destroy what has been created in the image of God. We sacrifice our children on the altar of Molech for financial gain or convenience. God will grant mercy when we are honest. My own family has been affected by abortion. Just because you participated in it, doesn’t mean you now have to buy into the lie and continue this atrocious act. 

“The fasted growing populace for the pro-life movement is young people. My generation gave up on (being pro-life). It was too controversial to talk about in church, even though we kill over 300,000 Black children a year. It is the number one cause of death in the Black community; but we don’t talk about that.

“Our founders said: “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness’ because Liberty and Happiness are of scarce value, if you have been torn apart in the womb of your mother (which was supposed to be the safest place in America).

“Our birth rate is plummeting, our churches are silent, and now we are coming into Thanksgiving and I really do believe that God is causing an awakening in the hearts of America. (This issue) has far exceeded the atrocity of slavery in America. It is the holocaust in the Black community. Eugenicists like Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood wanted to remove the undesirable races in the inner city.

“Why does less than four percent of the nation’s population who are Black females of childbearing age are responsible for almost 40 percent of the abortions in America?

“BLM and Planned Parenthood work arm-in-arm to burn our inner cities, destroy our children, and use them as political pawns.”

Pastor Rob McCoy using 2 Kings 22:1-13 as his scriptural text for his message said: “We can learn from an 18-year-old King Josiah.” When the recently found Book of the Law was read to King Josiah, he said: “Go, inquire of the Lord for me, for the people and for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that has been found; for great is the wrath of the LORD that is aroused against us, because our fathers have not obeyed the words of this book, to do according to all that is written concerning us.”

“First, there is an awakening; then revival. Revival is like Judgment Day; when we awaken to God’s laws. Revisionists have taken away Thanksgiving. They don’t know the history of the Pilgrims who came seeking religious freedom and got here in 1620. The Pilgrims came to create a form of government that was the first Western Biblical government through the Mayflower Compact signed in November, 1620.

“The winter was harsh and less than 50 of the 100 who landed, survived and only six were healthy enough to care (for the sick). When 1621 came; no supplies came. This is the story of God’s hand that we have stopped telling our children.

“We have allowed our schools to no longer talk about America and the providential hand that God has had upon us. We don’t let our children understand the significance of what God did in and through the founding of this nation.

But the Miracle of Thanksgiving was of the Indian named Squanto (who had been kidnapped and sold into slavery and taken back to Europe but was taught how to read and speak English) and when he came back to the New World was able to teach the Pilgrims about seed and fishing.

“We don’t let our children understand the significance of what God did through the founding of this nation. We have to revisit this. We say: ‘I have got stuff to do; and I really don’t need to be educating my children.’ But you are the steward of your child—the state isn’t. You are going to have to give an accounting to God for the children that He has entrusted into your care. ‘Raise them in the ways they should go, so that when they are old, they will not depart thereof.’

“We are awakened and then we are revived. This week you have four days to come and say ‘Thank you’ God for awakening me, for reviving me. I am so thankful to be your child, to be your instrument and to be used by you.’

“God awakens us to have liberty; but we lost (liberty), because we put everything ahead of Him. Come home, we are all guilty. If you confess your sins, He is faithful and just; to cleanse you to be an instrument to establish liberty and set captives free; or you can let the government be your God.

“The Lord has come to set the captives free.”

Pastor Rob McCoy said, “BLM and Planned Parenthood work arm-in-arm to burn our inner cities, destroy our children, and use them as political pawns.”

Which helps explain why there’s no political solution to America’s problem.

However the public government school system first destroys children (often using them as political pawns arm-in-arm with Marxist-Leninist teachers unions), before they ‘graduate’ into groups like BLM and PP.

McCoy is just a political hack using religion to push his personal agenda.
