Gen. Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump's former national security adviser, has broken his silence following his presidential pardon and said that he believes the country is in a "war against the forces of evil."

In a remarks published in the Western Journal, Flynn insisted that the country must band together and refuse to "go to the funeral of our independence."

His remarks come as the president and his supporters challenge the 2020 presidential election results in several states.

What are the details?

In his remarks, which were delivered on Saturday, Flynn said, "The battle we are engaged in cannot be fought with only human weapons: It requires the intervention of God because in a war against the forces of evil, only the Lord can obtain the victory."

"[A]s American citizens, we must refuse to go to the funeral of our own independence," he added. "We the people are proud to proclaim that the United States of America is 'One Nation under God.'"

"In this public profession of faith in God, we recognize his Lordship over our country, and we proudly stand beneath the banner of Christ and our flag, in which millions have sacrificed their very lives for," Flynn continued.

Flynn made the remarks from the steps of the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., as thousands of demonstrators gathered and held pro-Trump signs in support of an ongoing challenge of the 2020 presidential election results.

Citing scripture, he pointed out that the Lord also said, "'Whoever is not with me is against me.'"

"We do not want a world governed by tyrants whom no one has elected and who want to have power in order to destroy us," he said. "We understand what their plan is: to eliminate dissent, subdue any criticism and outlaw those who do not submit unconditionally to the dictatorship of the 'new world order.'"

"In this crucible moment of our time, we have to pray that truth triumphs over lies, justice triumphs over abuse and fraud, honesty triumphs over corruption," the former national security adviser later added. "Our sacred honor triumphs over infamy."

He also insisted that there are "still avenues" to secure a Trump re-election.

"[W]e're fighting with faith, and we're fighting with courage," Flynn added.

Trump pardoned Flynn in November after Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about contacts with a Russian envoy.

He later added, "The courts aren't going to decide who the next president of the United States is going to be. 'We the people' decide."

"[W]e're only asking to show us a little transparency," Flynn continued. "Why not recount? Why not look at the signatures? Why not look inside these [voting] machines? Why not? What are they afraid of? What are they hiding from? They're hiding from something."

Outright stating that fraud took place during the 2020 presidential election, Flynn insisted, "Our protest, our denunciation of electoral fraud is not only motivated by the fact that we are supporting Donald J. Trump as a candidate. It is above all a battle for justice and truth, which goes far beyond membership in a party or voting for a candidate."

"Pray now that when the light shines in the coming days, it reveals the truth along with a new era of American patriotism," he concluded.

The Electoral College is set to vote Monday on the results of the 2020 presidential election.
