Grisham told Diamond the Holy Spirit moved upon him and told him to study about "strongholds" in the Holy Bible. He said he looked up and studied everything in God’s word that concerns pulling down strongholds.
The LoudMouth Prayer minister noted that some people say taking down a stronghold means pulling down or displacing the spiritual demonic principalities and powers so that they would no longer be able to affect a city, region or nation, but he said that the Word of God doesn't mean that.
He mentioned the Book of Daniel in the Old Testament and said the Prophet Daniel never interacted with the principality or the "Prince of Persia" that kept God's angel coming to him for 21 days.
Grisham then moved to the New Testament and said the strongholds that the Apostle Paul was talking to the Corinthians about were mindsets – the wrong thinking and wrong imaginations – that they need to pull down. He added the Lord took him into a vision of the throne of Satan, which has a force field at the bottom.
The reverend from Oklahoma said he knew it was a stronghold, a mindset, a way of thinking that came out of Satan's throne. He related that the Holy Spirit told him it was a stronghold that says Christians should not be in politics and government.
The theologian and "America Unhinged" host agreed with Grisham, saying the mind of America has been detached from reality. Diamond said there are strongholds in America that will not let truth in, and those need to be pulled down. He added that Americans need to take a mental inventory of what they believe and compare it to what God says.

"And if it doesn't compare and line up with what God says, it's a stronghold and it needs to be torn down," Diamond said.
Diamond said that the key to every victory in life for Christians is to take down strongholds in their minds, which he said has been put there by the world, the devil and the Church. He added that people can understand the truth as well as authority.
The theologian and speaker pointed out that Christians need to have the full armor of God and that the most important offensive weapon of a believer is the sword of the Spirit.
Diamond mentioned that the pulpits now are full of people who do not understand warfare and people who don't ever hear that the Church is supposed to be militant.
"The Church is supposed to be on the offensive, pushing back darkness, not with guns, not with planes, not with violence. Christ never did that. But we are also not to retreat. And we're also not to compromise," he explained.
The Brighteon.TV host added that Americans need to be waging war in their cities, especially those cities that have been taken over by the spirit of the antichrist.
Grisham, a fully devoted follower of Christ committed to telling the world about Him, said politics is where the Christians can come in and begin to implement the biblical way that government should be ruling the nation. The LoudMouth Prayer minister said the Lord also showed him more strongholds aside from the governments and educational institutions.
He said the Lord asked him what scripture appears in his mind when it comes to parents raising their children.
The Broken Arrow-based minister mentioned Proverbs 22:6 and stressed that training a child is the responsibility of the parents and not the government.
"And it never said the state or the government knows best, especially one that has taken prayer and the Bible out of schools. And so what happens is the Bible gives us the absolute of what God's thought is concerning education. So the parents are to train their children," Grisham emphasized.
"And then Satan takes that scripture warps it, he twists it and he turns it into the government knows best -- [i.e.,] the state should run the education system and they know better than we do, they know better than the parents do. That is not how this works. The Bible says parents should train up their children."
