Ministers who do not love America
By Mario Murillo
Matthew Henry said, “Great pretenders to sanctity are commonly the worst enemies to those who are really sanctified.”
I collided with a false minister. He attacked me and said, “you have become a politician,” (I could see right through him). I asked him “what is a politician?” He set a trap for himself by his own words.
So, then I asked him why he wasn’t speaking out against the destruction of America. He told me that it would split his church. I said, “you have just told me that a politician is someone who will say and do anything to stay in power. I am not the politician you are!”
Amos 7: 12-15 says, “Then Amaziah sent orders to Amos, “Get out of here, you prophet, you! Flee to the land of Judah and do your prophesying there! 13 Don’t bother us here with your visions, not here in the capital where the king’s chapel is!” 14 But Amos replied, “I am not really one of the prophets. I do not come from a family of prophets. I am just a herdsman and fruit picker. 15 But the Lord took me from caring for the flocks and told me, ‘Go and prophesy to my people Israel.”
Amaziah was a false priest who led Israel to worship Golden Calves. He should never have interfered with the prophetic message of God. Amos told him,“Hey, I didn’t ask for this job, God put me in this.” Then God said this to Amaziah: “Now, therefore, listen to this message to you from the Lord. You say, ‘Don’t prophesy against Israel.’ The Lord’s reply is this: ‘Because of your interference, your wife will become a prostitute in this city, your sons and daughters will be killed, and your land divided up. You yourself will die in a heathen land, and the people of Israel will certainly become slaves in exile, far from their land.’” -Amos 7: 16-17
Like Amos, I had to be dragged into the political fray by the Holy Spirit. I knew going in that it would touch off a firestorm of criticism. But I had no choice.
It’s strange how few criticized me when I railed against gang violence, poverty, heroin and crystal meth, and how many attack me for exposing the worst gang and the most addictive narcotic in the ghetto: liberal government.
The left sells a drug cocktail of atheism, Islam and the destruction of the family. Not only this, but they viciously attack free speech—only their viewpoint is allowed.
I didn’t leave my calling—I am fulfilling it. We are more active in inner city soul winning than ever—only now, we are getting to the root of the problem.
First and foremost—we preach Jesus to youth. We make way for miraculous healings. But we also train them on what made America great. We honor the truths that made us blessed and we expose the lies that are destroying our nation.
Saving America should be a passion for all ministers. Tell me what is wrong with that? What is wrong with pointing out the fact that our greatness is tied to Christ? I do not want a theocracy—to have “Christians run the country.” I do not seek a sanctified sharia. But who can deny the power, protection and prosperity we enjoyed when the teachings of Jesus were honored in the halls of our government?
Those who are called to preach to America should love the nation more than their financial security and reputation.
Those false ministers—who form covenants with darkness—who are muzzled by politics and can’t condemn abortion, the destruction of marriage, Islam and the anti-God violence and rebellion face special danger. And I must ask all ministers a question: DO YOU THINK YOU WILL ESCAPE?
“This was Mordecai’s reply to Esther: “Do you think you will escape there in the palace when all other Jews are killed? 14 If you keep quiet at a time like this, God will deliver the Jews from some other source, but you and your relatives will die; what’s more, who can say but that God has brought you into the palace for just such a time as this?” Esther 4: 13-14
Like Amos said to Amaziah—don’t interfere with God’s message of repentance or the wrath of God will fall on you! The very disaster you are trying to escape by compromising will overtake you! But those who faithfully preach the counsel of God will be spared from all destruction and thrive supernaturally.
