On November the 9th there will be a big change at Mario Murillo Ministries. This announcement has been in the planning stages for years but Mario feels that now is the right time to go public.
We have reached a historic milestone: 2 million people have now read Mario Murillo’s blog.
This does not include videos—this is people sitting down to read. The fact that reading is dying—especially on social media which is overrun by video blogs—makes this achievement even more amazing.
We also know that the blog has been quietly censored…even throttled. This means that our actual readership is probably much higher.
This blog was one of the very first Christian blogs to openly oppose Barack Obama. At the time, Obama had a 68% approval rating and it was uncool to criticize him.
Some pastors told Mario he was no longer welcomed in their pulpits.
A large Christian network took him off the air because of his oppositional papers on Obama, Islam and same sex marriage…yes, same sex marriage.
Mario’s blog was one of the very first to publicly support Trump for president—another unpopular stance. He did not call it prophetic…just common sense. Once again, the blog endured critical headwinds…but readers kept coming back and the audience kept growing.
Astoundingly, the blog has been read in 174 of the 176 nations of the world. (Why embarrass the two tiny nations that have not read the blog).
Now Mario is making another ground breaking announcement. He says that the mantle for his political commentary is being lifted by the Holy Spirit. He even has a date for the blog’s transformation: November 9th.
It’s not that his writings will never again rebuke government it’s just that he feels something will change drastically on November 9th.
When pressed he could only speculate on why the Holy Spirit will lift this mantle of warning, correcting and exposing the corruption of Washington:
“I believe God had me speak out because America was on the brink of an unalterable disaster. On November 8th, we will either be rescued by Trump or driven into the ground by Hillary.
If we are rescued, then my work in this arena is done. I must leave this kind of commentary to others.
If Hillary wins, we must assume we will become the underground church. Her appointments to the Supreme court will be the finishing touch to the already contaminated IRS, FBI and Justice Department. How can anyone suppose that freedom of speech or freedom of religion will survive her? How can anyone think this is not our last free election if she comes to power?
Her unholy alliance with Google, Facebook, Apple, Youtube, Twitter and Hollywood will guarantee that any opposing thought will be smothered. They will be the propaganda machine to justify criminalizing Christianity.
In such a case, I must proceed as if I am in Russia, China or even North Korea. I must weigh my writings for the impact they will have on the church under a government that will openly punish citizens for reading ‘subversive material.’
When she refers to us as ‘deplorables that cannot be redeemed’ how do you think she will treat us when she has the power?”
So what does he think he will write after November 9th? “I will occasionally rebuke government. However, I must declare signs, wonders and miracles more than ever. I must speak fire and faith to the soldiers of God who may, by then, suffer beneath the lash of a hostile government.”
In either case…November 9th is the start of a whole new kind of blog from Mario Murillo. Stay tuned!
