Is it too late for America?
By Mario Murillo
You do not need a stock answer to this question. This is an explosive question that deserves a considered opinion. In the next few minutes I wish to respond to this question and I ask that you reserve judgment until you read what I have to say in its entirety.
Let me begin by asking you a question. What if a rational Christian told you that they believed it was too late for America? How would you react? Would you react by being angry or dismissive? If so, then you my friend are part of the problem. Those who say that it is too late for America have a strong case and we are wise, if we want to have any hope at all, to soberly listen.
This is when they say that a nation is finished:
When a nation owes a debt that it cannot pay: If, as the Bible says, the borrower is servant to the lender, then we already belong to China.
When the nation’s leader shakes his fist at God: Some Christians hold to the fantasy that we have a president. We do not. We have an activist in the White House. Obama is shaking his fist at God. He feels no accountability to our constitution. He stands with Islam and not Christianity or Judaism. He is reshaping America. He is dismantling our greatness because he despises the America that was once one nation under God.
Many Christians dismiss any indictment of Obama as politics, racism or unchristian because the reality that we have a renegade president is frightening. However, facts are facts. They are neither racist nor political.
When God sends prophets and their warnings are ignored or rejected: 2 Chronicles 36:15, “And the LORD God of their fathers sent warnings to them by His messengers, rising up early and sending them, because He had compassion on His people and on His dwelling place. 16 But they mocked the messengers of God, despised His words, and scoffed at His prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against His people, till there was no remedy”
While they were alive, David Wilkerson, Kenneth Hagin and Steve Hill enjoyed wide acceptance as great men of God. In the last two days I have posted the final warnings that came from these notable vessels. It was amazing to me how many “fans” of these men never knew about these warnings. How is this possible? It is possible because we are being taught to ignore warnings and only listen for blessings.
We are beyond the place where Pastors merely leave truth out. Today they mock truth and brand voices from God as radicals. We see religious empires built entirely out of human wisdom and defended like a crime family.
The church is feverish with 7 deadly sins: Denial, Arrogance, Entitlement, Deception, Sensuality, Rebellion and Materialism. For this and many other reasons, America hangs precariously in the balance.
So let me answer the question directly…No it is not too late for America but we must shed many things that we are doing right now and we must shed them with intense zeal… is if they were radioactive waste…or, very, very soon it will be too late.
What must we do to save America? That is what comes next! Look for the concluding part of this message in a few hours.
The church in America has been struck by an iceberg. Over one thousand preachers a month are leaving the ministry defeated by the open hostility of our culture and the draining effect of lukewarm believers. We cannot go on this way. There must be an answer.
What if we had a convention designed to confront the threat against the American Church? What if we had a convention that brushed aside all of the frills and distractions and instead focused on receiving power and fresh direction?
The American Church will not be turned around by supermen but by supernatural men. We do not need better equipment, new organizations, novel methods, but vessels that the Holy Ghost can use—vessels who pray with prevailing might. God does not flow through religious machinery but through human beings, he does not anoint plans, but people—people of prayer.
It is our conviction that there is a life available, set apart in prayer that only goes out to serve at the direct command of God. That life can accomplish truly mighty things, things mighty enough to change the course of America.
Do not sit back and watch dark clouds gather. Sweep away the cobwebs, underbrush and weeds of despair and take action! It is high time for you to operate in gifts of power.
This prayer of Peter embodies this convention: Acts 4: 29 Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” 31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.
As important as the day of Pentecost was to the Book of Acts Church, the outpouring that happened two chapters later was equally crucial. Pentecost proved that God could pour out His Spirit on the Earth. The miracle in Acts 4 proved God could do it again.
Join us in the mountains with the firm conviction that God can and will do it again.
