I have a word from the Lord for you! I know that because even as I am writing this to you my hand is shaking from the current of His power. I am sitting here preparing to preach tonight in Martinez California. Then it hit me that I was supposed to get this out to you right away.
Here is the fire that is overtaking my spirit. Here is the word of the Lord to you. Push away doubt, fear and apology. Reject limits, lies and threats. Today God will reveal your place in Saving America. Jesus has targeted you for special ops!
I am sitting here staring at the title for my message tonight: Your place in saving America.
It begins with specific questions. What would a revival in the San Francisco Bay Area look like? In this bastion of liberalism, in this matrix of technology and social networking how would God do it?
These are the questions I will ask and answer tonight! However, these truths apply no matter where you live!
1. Prophecy trumps policy: The most urgent step you can take right now is to review the prophetic promises God has made to you. Caesar Augustus felt powerful but he was manipulated by the prophetic when he ordered the world to register in their hometowns. He had an echo of power because the real power was using him to get Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem.
Our Caesar Augustus is Barrack Obama. Sorry if it offends but he is a tyrant on a binge to reshape America. He is punishing what he perceives is the arrogance and greed of our nation. He wants to erode everything that makes us exceptional and get us to fall into line with the other nations of the world. His agenda beyond that is shrouded in mystery and darkness.
How could Augustus have known that one day his throne in Rome would fall to the Nazarene? In the same way let every anti-God agent in America heed my warning. Not only is God not done with the Church and our nation, He has not yet begun to fight!
The prophecies about you are greater than the policies that try to control you! Tonight it will be my thrill to stand and remind those in Northern California of the prophecy that was given to me by none other than Bob Dylan the folk and rock legend himself! Moments before he called me on the phone God said, “I will pour out of my Spirit on San Francisco.” Minutes later Bob is on the phone to me and he asks, “Did God tell you He was going to pour out His Spirit on San Francisco Mario? Well, He is.” There are no words to describe the power I felt. Since then amazing miracles have happened by seizing that promise but the best is yet to come!
2. Relevant, essential and supernatural: 1 Corinthians 14: 24 “But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all. 25 And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you.” Paul asks us, “What kind of impact to you want to have on the outside world? We think that we are a universe away from revival but in fact, as dark as it may seem and as entrenched as evil looks, Satan’s hold is fragile and tenuous.
Relevant essential miracles overtake the narrative. No matter how angry people are about rights, policies, liberal and conservative issues, the arrival of miracles stops debate. It changes the conversation from race, drugs, guns and every other hot button issue to one about the Grace, Mercy, Goodness and Power of Jesus Christ.
God can instantly create things that were not there before and suddenly make the Church essential to those who wanted nothing to do with God! God instantly created a hunger on the day of Pentecost! The men in the crowd cried out to Peter, “what should we do?! He can write new songs that will pierce a jagged generation! He can impart new methods that
You may feel out of place with much of the religious world right now. All that means is that you are meant for another place of service altogether. If you have tried on the armor of Church tradition and it does not fit is because you are a new breed. You are strangely normal and supernaturally appropriate to this moment when God breaks out in a shocking and irresistible way!
