THE CALIFORNIA AGENDA: COMING SOON TO YOUR STATE

God is warning us in advance.  He wants us to lose our denial.  Don’t look at your red state, or your on fire church, and laugh off the threat.  It is a real and present.  The Holy Spirit is calling for immediate action.  He has a plan to stop the California agenda.

Don’t forget, there was a day not long ago when believers in California could not imagine the laws that have just passed here—laws that will lead to banning Bibles and shutting down Christian services.

Can this agenda really spread to the other states of America? It’s already there. Here is how it got there and why it will spread even further:

Teachers unions:  The National Education Association is the largest interest group in the United States.  That means the roots of radical indoctrination on gender are already in your child’s classroom.  This union is waiting for the events in California to unfold and gain wider acceptance before they make their move.

The Democratic Party: This November, you will see these elements of California’s agenda slipped into their political platform.

Universities:  The local university your child attends already includes these tenets as a part of education.  Students will earn their grades based on agreeing with these values.

Hollywood celebrities: They are getting bolder and bolder about sexual immorality.  They are pushing the idea that young people who don’t agree are already labeled intolerant and ignorant.

Social media: In a speech at Google headquarters, LGBT activist Samuel Brinton promised to “figure out” how to stop “pastors…” “I may not be able to find every little camp … every pastor, but I can make it something that is culturally unacceptable,” he said.”

The captains of social media—Bay area based, Twitter, Facebook, Youtube—want this agenda to take over of America.  Every American young person has at least one of these accounts.

Lukewarm Churches: They are the biggest reason this radical agenda will spread.  The combination of leftist radicals and lukewarm churches created the perfect storm in California.  That weather pattern is now all over America now.

There is a glaring example in deep red Texas—Houston is a contradiction of mega churches and radical city government.

Beloved, I don’t care if you are in New York State or Alabama…this hideous agenda is at festering and God wants us to take action now.  I believe we can reverse this curse and see nationwide revival.  Do these things:

Pray in a way you have never prayed before:  It is time to call together a unified company of intercessors. It is time to divert them away from separate issues and focus prayer on a specific target.

I said this before: Stand between heaven and earth as a true intercessor.  Invoke the Name above all Names to get to the very Throne of God with your petition.  Do what Moses did who raised the rod of Aaron over the battle. When you pray, pray violently, pray exactingly, detailing the damage you want done and where you want it done. By the Spirit, speak directly to evil powers. Call them out and cast them down.  Cut their power over America.

Get out of the lukewarm churches.  Stop supporting them.  Stop kidding yourself that you are there to minister to people.  We no longer have that luxury.  If you are not hearing the Bible preached, and you are not seeing the Holy Spirit move, get out.

Never mind all of the perks.  Consider the word of God which says, “Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud. –Proverbs 16:19

Even more direct are the words of Paul: “having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” -2 Timothy 3:5

I promise you there is a man or woman of God not far from you who is staying true and fighting the battle of their life.  They are getting it from both sides:  A godless generation and seeker church models that mock their integrity.  Join them!  Watch the Holy Spirit raise up an army.   Follow this link to read about these right churches  https://wp.me/p1vrzp-5rP

Become an informed witness.  I have written to you about stolen thunder How Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson reach millions because the expose lies.   Follow this link to read the article Stolen Thunder  https://wp.me/p1vrzp-5oR

Christians have an even greater capacity to expose lies and oppose bad government.  Proverbs 28: 2 says, “Because of the transgression of a land, many are its princes; But by a man of understanding and knowledge Right will be prolonged.”

Even more powerful is this promise from Jesus: Luke 21:13 “But it will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony. 14 Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will answer; 15 for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.”

Someone reading this is not supposed to be a preacher.  You are supposed to be in government and in journalism…perhaps even television news.  The point is that if Christians would just stop hiding and let the Holy Spirit train them and embolden them we would be able to disrupt Satan’s plans for America.

At the very least, we need to go to our children’s schools armed with an understanding of parental rights and a firm knowledge of our convictions.  We can stop radical teachers and politicians if we obey the Holy Spirit.

It is not too late for any state in America…it is not even too late for California.  We just need to be bold and obedient.  However, we are running out of time.

Finally, I must say what I have said to you before: When God sees someone take up the mighty weapons of God—in the Name of Jesus—and attempt the impossible—God will muster all of the resources of heaven to bring that someone total victory.

Activist viewpoint caught on video. AB 2943 will target the Bible. Snopes is wrong.

See Video.  In what could be a huge embarrassment for the online “fact-checker” Snopes, both a lawmaker and an LGBT activist have admitted a California state bill targets “pastors” and members of the “faith community” who insist a man is a man, not a woman, and vice versa.

BY  BOB UNRUH  AT WMD

The controversy is over a bill that critics have charged effectively would ban the sale of Bibles, because it regards as “consumer fraud” any commercial transaction that affirms Christian beliefs about the nature of the two genders and homosexual behavior.

WND reported Monday Snopes blasted the charge that the bill would ban Bibles as “False” in huge red lettering.

Snopes admits the bill relates to “gay conversion therapy” but states the legislation “does not mention the Bible, Christianity, or religion at all.”

It acknowledges analysts were “not clear whether the text of A.B. 2943 would amount to a blanket prohibition on any and all [Sexual Orientation Change Efforts]” and quotes the homosexual sponsor of the bill saying the Bible itself is not a “gay conversation therapy” manual.

Now, a video has been revealed of California state Assembly member Al Muratsuchi admitting that he wants to target people of faith.

The lawmaker argued the First Amendment “does not prohibit banning fraudulent conduct.”

“The faith community, like anyone else, needs to evolve with the times,” he charged.

He claimed the “science is clear” on the issue, since the California Medical Association, California Psychological Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics all advocate laws establishing special rights for transgendered individuals.

He didn’t mention that other respected organizations take the opposite view.

Muratsuchi said the notion that the First Amendment “can be used as a defense for promoting fraudulent conduct is a fallacious argument.”

Liberty Counsel, one of the first to raise concerns about the bill, explained it is so broad it “bans books, printed materials and advertisements that provide information that a person facing unwanted same-sex attractions or gender confusion can change.”

 

 

And further, in a speech at Google headquarters, LGBT activist Samuel Brinton promised to “figure out” how to stop “pastors” and churches from offering such counseling.

“I may not be able to find every little camp … every pastor, but I can make it something that is culturally unacceptable,” he said. “Yes, it’s directly affecting mental health professionals, but by proxy, it’s affecting everyone else.”

Liberty Counsel noted the Bible specifically refers to homosexuality in 1 Corinthians 6:9 then states in verse 11: “And such were some of you.”

Publishing such a passage — which indicates that “through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, people with same-sex attractions or who engaged in same-sex behavior can change” — would “be considered fraudulent business practices under this bill,” Liberty Counsel argues.

Mat Staver, Liberty Counsel’s founder and chief counsel, said his organization is prepared to sue “to stop this outrageous attack on the First Amendment.”

He explained the Bible specifically counsels against same-sex relationships, and citing that verse in any number of ways could be interpreted by California as fraudulent activity.

Staver called it a “dangerous bill that would punish people for their biblical beliefs about marriage, gender and human sexuality.”

“This law is stunning in its breadth. The mask of those supporting this oppressive bill has been removed,” he said. “Their goal is to crush Christianity and any viewpoint that does not align with the state. We stand ready to file suit to stop this assault on freedom if this bill is signed into law.”

Snopes ‘sneaky liar’

Snopes is playing with words, contends a longtime professor of New Testament at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, Robert A.J. Gagnon, the author of “The Bible and Homosexual Practice.”

His column at The Federalist was titled “Snopes is a Sneaky Liar about California’s Bill to Ban Christian LGBT Talk.”

“If you haven’t already lost significant respect for Snopes as an impartial fact-checker, its analysis of a bill that bans all transactions involved in stating Christian beliefs about homosexual behavior should,” he said.

“That bill passed 50-18 on April 19 and is being considered in the state senate. Snopes’ insistence that California Assembly Bill 2943 would not result in the Bible being banned in California is akin to Snopes calling ‘demonstrably and clearly false’ the claim that Joseph Stalin killed everyone around him,” wrote Gagnon.

“Indeed, so far as we know he never personally killed anyone. But he did have a great many people killed (estimates indicate that he was responsible for the deaths of 20 to 25 million people), sent many others to the Gulag, and generally terrorized both his own country and Eastern Europe for decades.”

Gagnon explained the bill poses legal jeopardy for a “Bible study or house church leader, member of a parachurch organization working to help people afflicted by same-sex attractions, or indeed anybody who attempts change if goods or services involve an exchange of funds.”

“Read the bill. There is no religious exemption. There is no restriction to mental health professionals. There is not even a restriction to claims about changing a person’s sexual orientation or transgender feelings in whole or part. The bill is quite clear that any ‘efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions’ are included in the ban on attempts to change a person’s ‘sexual orientation,’” he said.

He continued: “So you would be violating the law if you advertise that Christ can empower people not to engage in homosexual practice or not to identify as ‘gay’ or ‘transgender’ because such behaviors and self-identities are morally wrong, or if you offer to engage or actually engage in efforts to persuade people of Christ’s power to transform in this area, you will be in violation of California AB 2943, at least so long as your advertising or efforts involved in any way an exchange of money for goods or services.”

Violations of A.B. 2943 could, he said, include “selling religious or secular books (pamphlets, videos, audios, etc.), holding conferences, teaching courses in a college or seminary where tuition is paid, giving a speech at a paid venue, counseling people for a fee, or perhaps even posting online articles in a site that requires a paid subscription, in which it is asserted (in whole or part) that it is morally wrong for people to engage in homosexual practice or identify as ‘gay’ or ‘transgender.’”

He quoted religious liberties lawyer David French, who agreed, stating it is “a bill that would actually – among other things – ban the sale of books expressing orthodox Christian beliefs about sexual morality.”

Joining him was Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Matt Sharp: “It would be a violation if a pastor encourages a congregant to visit the church book store to purchase books that help people address sexual issues, perhaps including the Bible itself, which teaches about the importance of sexual purity within the confines of marriage between a man and a woman.”

In WND’s previous report, Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, a leading pro-family group, also criticized the bill.

“How can any legislator voting for this call themselves pro-choice when they’ve voted to wipe out a person’s own choice of a counselor?” Thomasson asked.

“How can any legislator voting for AB 2943 say they support religious freedom when they’ve just threatened church bookstores that sell self-help books about overcoming unwanted same-sex desires? AB 2943 is anti-free-speech, anti-religious-freedom, anti-free-choice, and has no place in a free society. This intolerant bill contains no exemption and no protection at all for religious entities.”

It’s time for the Body of Christ in California to do some deep soul searching. 

Business as usual has proven to be a colossal failure. The massive mega churches in the Golden State—with their tens of millions of dollars—have not made a dent in the greatest moral meltdown in California’s history.

California is just 24 hours away from a law—California Assembly Bill 2943—that can forever change how Christians will be treated in this state. It could also, easily lead to banning Bibles.

Have you seen any organized protest?  Do you hear many mega church pastor call for action on the final Sunday before the Senators vote?  My guess is not much.   I did get wind of a common theme: We don’t need to do anything because the gates of hell would not prevail against us.”

Such arrogance has taken its toll on believers.   One lady—influenced by this thinking—said this on our Facebook page: “the Church is awake and powerful in California.”  A brother responded, “Then why is California going to hell in a hand basket?”

Which begs a bigger question: why did the gates of hell prevail in so many places…even inside some churches?  Look at these verses again to see why:

Matthew 16:18 “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Jesus said: “I will build.”  There are two kinds of churches: The one He is building, and the one man is building.  Can anyone deny California is overrun by man made religious empires?

Yes, they look right on the outside, and they are Christian, but they are disconnected from the life of Christ.  Jesus said, “I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.  If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.” -John 15: 5,6

Christ will build something through the preacher who abides in Him. But relying on a fad growth model cuts them off of from the life of God.  Cut branches don’t dry up instantly—man made churches can thrive for a season on leadership skills and marketing talent. Human powered religious centers are sustainable until the right crisis arrives.

There is a devastating cost to these manufactured churches—and they anger God.  He is angry that they have dulled the Body’s natural ability to sense danger.  He is enraged that they kept his sheep from preparing for the moral landslide in California.

It grieves the Holy Spirit that they not only remained silent about wickedness, they actually opposed those who tried to obey God.  Heaven is screaming at their guilt!  Just when they needed to drive back demonic power, and catalyze moral awakening…they instead, tacitly approved of the wickedness.

The guilty know who they are.  They knew it the first time they told a saint they couldn’t raise their hands in worship.  They knew it when they began banning gifts of power, living by the clock, and leaving out Bible turths.

Now the Lord is signaling that a storm is coming.  To set the record straight and to bring revival, God must expose their false foundations.  This breaks my heart.  It makes me weep.

Jesus warned about these storms: “But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”- Matthew 7: 26,27

Think of it as mercy if God brings your house down.  At least your folly is revealed and you can repent before you stand before God.

If God turns you over and allows your charade to go on, that would be the worst.  In this case, your empire becomes a trophy of hell.  Millions of dollars are nothing to Satan to subsidize a factory of false faith and synthetic Christians.  At that point, God will see no difference between you, Hollywood, Godless liberals, or even the porn industry.  To Him you’re doing equal damage.

My prayer is that this gets to compromised preachers in time.  I know some of them.  They know what they are doing is not right…that’s why they suffer greatly.  They harbor tremendous guilt, loneliness, and emptiness.

Frances Chan is an example of a man who would not compromise—he pastored a mega church in Simi Valley.  Something profound gripped him. To the utter shock of almost everyone, he left all to begin a highly effective discipleship work in the Tenderloin area of San Francisco (an area I know well from ministering on those streets.)  God filled his hunger for the life of Jesus to flow through him.

I am not saying every pastor has to leave their church.  I am saying that worshiping size, prestige, and celebrity above the moving of the Holy Spirit has been total disaster for California.  God has declared an end because there is too much at stake.

Now that Sacramento is out of the closet and is declaring war on His Church…God will not wait for you any longer.  This could be a final warning.  God is directing these scriptures to lukewarm leaders and lukewarm churches in California:

Revelations 3: 4 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write,

‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”  Amen.

Apathy has come at the worst possible time

On the eve of the most dangerous law ever written against California believers—shocking silence has fallen on the church here.  Look on Facebook.  They are not even talking about it.  Do you see a groundswell of action?  Are state senators being flooded with calls and emails?  Did your mega church even say anything about it yesterday?  I am guessing nothing was said.

Don’t tell me I am writing too many warnings about this.  Paul said in Acts 21: 31 “Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.”  Like Paul, I am not going to stop warning you.

Others claim I am overstating the threat.  If anything, I am understating the danger.  Those who are not alarmed have either not read the law or they refuse to believe their eyes.  So here goes again:

California Assembly Bill 2943 passed and has been sent to the State Senate for final approval.  Jerry Brown has already said he would sign it into law if the Senate approves it.  If he does it will be a point of no return.

Here is what the new law would do:  It will prohibit resources concerning treatment or ministry in order to reduce or eliminate same sex attraction or gender dysphoria. Essentially, conferences, counseling, teaching, books, or publications, where money is exchanged for the resource, would be prohibited.  This is dangerous.

Fully enforced, this law would ban the sale of Bibles in California.  Moreover, this law is a gateway law—it will lead to even more laws that persecute Christian faith.

The Body of Christ, in the Golden State is in a do or die situation.  Please don’t bend Bible verses out of context so you can bury your head in the sand.  If you believe it can’t happen here, you are not only part of the problem, you are denying what Christians in other countries suffer.  Other nations have had moments when the simple use of democracy would have prevented the loss of their freedoms.

Is there still hope to turn this crisis around?  The answer is clear:  there is only hope if we take action.  Here is what I am asking you to do right now.

Understand the danger of this law and why you oppose it.  This is vital so you can make sense to State Senators.  You already see how California flouted the Constitution with their sanctuary law.  This new law openly violates freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

Use social media to get Christians in California to email and call their state senator.  Even if you don’t live in California you can still contact those you do know. And you can pray.  At the end of this blog you will see a link to contact the State Senate.   Again, use your social media accounts to broadcast this urgent threat to the church.  Share this blog with as many as possible.

My final words are to all voting age Christians in California: it is time to put aside every excuse.  Don’t delay!  I am not exaggerating…Assembly Bill 2943 that will lead to banning the Bible in California.  WE MUST ACT BEFORE THURSDAY.

Again, when you email or call your Senator be firm but polite. Tell them you will be voting in the next election and that you will be campaigning for politicians who reflect your values.

TAKING AUTHORITY OVER WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES

What do you call it when politicians ram through legislation without informing the public? What do you call it when they attack those with honest questions?  What do you call it when politicians say their new laws protect small groups when in fact they only punish their political enemies?

What should we call it when Senators manipulate language to vilify anyone who disagrees with their agenda?  And finally, what should we call it when the real goal is not equality, justice, or truth, but an attempt to control the people?  You call it war.

The sooner you realize they have declared war on you and those you love; the sooner you can take appropriate action.  Many Christians have never been taught spiritual warfare.  In this user friendly era the language of war is scarce and  unwelcome.

Now that we are losing our freedoms—now that the vile behavior of the back alley is on main street—now that families see the culture absorbing the faith of their children—believers are open to studying authority over Satan.

Ephesians 6: 10-13 says “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.   For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

See where it says “wiles of the devil?” That is what is happening in Sacramento.  The tangled web of deceit and bias is clearly the wile of the devil.  See where it says “withstand in the evil day?”  That day has come to California.   This is the day for you—the willing warrior to be used by God.  Today, you put on all the armor of God.

It is obvious why believers in California should be interested in the damage Sacramento is doing but why should those of you not from California be alarmed?

A major article came out that said America should be ruled by one party—the Democratic Party.  At any other time, we could ignore such babbling but…Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey called the article “a great read.”  The captains of social media lean far left and wholeheartedly believe in this takeover of America.  Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and most social media have been censoring Conservatives and Christians for years even though they deny it.  Now, the voices of Christian Conservatives are being purged from all media.  All of this is pouring out of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Way too many ministers taught easy believism and made Christians apathetic when they needed to take action.   Too many preachers today remind us, “it’s all in God’s hands.” While that is a comforting truth it is not the one we need right now.  That’s been an excuse to be passive and missing in action.

But everywhere you look in the Bible it is against passivity and advocates action: “fight the good fight of faith…” “Endure hardness as a good soldier…” “Resist the devil…” “Take the sword of the Spirit…”

It is urgent that we pray in a way we have never prayed before.  Stand between heaven and earth as a true intercessor.  Invoke the Name above all Names to get to the very Throne of God with your petition.  Do what Moses did when he raised the rod of Aaron over the battle. When you pray, pray violently, pray exactingly, detailing the damage you want done and where you want it done. By the Spirit, speak directly to evil powers. Call them out and cast them down.  Cut their power over California.

Here is the great promise: When God sees someone take up the mighty weapons of God—in the Name of Jesus—and attempt the impossible—God will muster all of the resources of heaven to bring that someone total victory.

It is time to preach with more boldness and miracles than ever before.  At the first attempt to silence the church Peter prayed this prayer:  Acts 4:29,30 says, “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your Holy Servant Jesus.”

We cannot escape the urgency of revival in California.  California in its current condition can pull the nation down with it…but  revivals here have always overflowed America.

My last words are to all voting age Christians in California: it is time to call your State Senator on Monday and at least before Thursday when they vote on California Assembly Bill 2943 that will lead to banning the Bible in California.  WE MUST ACT BEFORE THURSDAY.

When you email or call your Senator be firm but polite. Tell them you will be voting in the next election and that you will be campaigning for politicians who reflect your values.

STAND AND FIGHT FOR CALIFORNIA

It does not matter if you live in California or not.  They have brought the fight to us and we can’t run from it.  In this message I am going to explain exactly what is going on and the direct action we must take.

For those who don’t know yet, California Assembly Bill 2943 passed and has been sent to the State Senate for final approval.  Jerry Brown has already said he would sign it into law if the Senate approves it.

This is a terrible law.  First it is designed to punish those who believe the Bible’s teaching on sexual sins. The advocates of anti-Christian policies worded this bill as harmlessly as possible but its punitive nature came through loud and clear.  Read the wording:

It will prohibit resources concerning treatment or ministry in order to reduce or eliminate same sex attraction or gender dysphoria. Essentially, conferences, counseling, teaching, books, or publications, where money is exchanged for the resource, would be prohibited.

There is no way around the intention here. I said this in as an earlier post: “No exchange of money can be allowed for a book that suggests recovery from same sex attraction or gender dysphoria?  No conference can do so either?  Oh wait, the Bible does that.  And oh, yeah a Bible Conference will do that.  This is no slippery slope.  This is the cliff.”

The immediate impact would be on any event where money is exchanged that teaches deliverance from sexual sin.  But it gets worse.

It is a threshold law.  That means it opens the door to further laws that seek to shut down the Christian moral opinion altogether.  Herod used this method.  In Acts 12:1,2 it says, “Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3 And because he saw that it pleased the Jews. he proceeded further to seize Peter also. ”

Do you see what’s happening here? California legislators are testing the pulse of the public.  They want to see, to what degree, they can inject their radical anti-Christian and yes, anti-American views into law.

Sacramento knows full well their new law violates the constitution.  They already broke federal law and violated the constitution with their sanctuary policy.  California state government sees itself as a separate nation not beholden to the Constitution.

The next logical step is to make a viewpoint illegal.  It would be against the law to teach or sell Bibles. Churches that held to Biblical morality could be closed.  Christians who stated their convictions would be fired, marginalized and even jailed.  What we have here is the dawn of state-sponsored persecution of Christians.  But it gets even worse than that.

What we have here is the dawn of American state-sponsored persecution of Christians.

Radical political activists and politicians across America are watching CA/B 2943 very closely.  When I said it is a threshold law, I also mean it is a model for similar laws across America.

To say we need to nip this in the bud is the understatement of the century.  How do we do this?  We begin by standing and fighting for California.  It means we must be willing to face a firestorm of criticism.  That is a small price to pay for protecting our children, grandchildren and our constitution.  But we must find the will to fight.

That will to fight must first be found in the prophetic.  Let me explain.  Today I read that Yellowstone Park sits on a super volcano that is 44 miles across. If it erupted, it would be thousands of times larger than Mt Saint Helens.  Ash would cover the entire U.S.

California, and Los Angeles specially sit on top of a spiritual super volcano.  It is breathtaking to list the ministries that have been born in Los Angeles.  Here is but a short list: Azusa Street, Billy Graham, Aimee Semple Mcpherson, Kathryn Kuhlman, Calvary Chapel, Youth with a Mission, Full Gospel Businessmen, TBN, and Melodyland where I was ordained.  Movement upon movement has ignited here and touched the world.

If the super volcano of the legacy of revival in California were to erupt it would cover the nation.

All over California outbreaks of holy fire are beginning to be seen.  Thousands of pastors and preachers have not bowed the knee to Baal.

What is needed now is anointing for political activism.  Not politics as usual but a spirit like Daniel to bring wisdom, conviction and influence to pagan culture.  Consider how immoral Babylon was.  Consider that Daniel began as a slave and was used by God to bring legislation and godly counsel to Babylon.  California is no worse than Babylon.

Let’s cry out to God for a spiritual eruption—for the will to fight—for a national flood of prayer for California. Amen.

One false move would be devastating. But I had to take this step of faith

By Mario Murillo.  I have not preached since January 29th.   I could easily re-injure my spine and be out for several more months.  All I have to do is trip once.  Any slip, or fall, would throw me back to square one…or worse.   All this ran through my mind.
I could not fly on a jet.  I would have to lay across the back seat of a car for 439 miles to Las Vegas and another 439 miles back. 16 hours!  I must watch every move I made.  I would feel anxiety anytime we’d hit a bump or the car jerked.
Every moment I was away from home was a risk.  It had to be God.  Mechelle and I had to have a clear word from God to go.
There was a deep fire in me to go.  First of all, Satan had attacked me because we are  bringing the Gospel with signs and wonders to Las Vegas.
I knew that without a core of leaders backing us, we could not hope to do this outreach.  Not only this, but we had cancelled on them twice and I couldn’t bring myself to make them wait any longer.
Then that voice that has been unmistakable since the day I was called to preach said “go.”

We’ve all prayed prayers for travelling mercies before a trip.  You can imagine what ours was like.  I will not bore you with the details of the road.  I will only tell you that a palpable protection covered our trip.
Although, at one point the enemy tried to torture my mind.  He reminded me that many leaders might not show up because they weren’t sure I was even coming. “You’re putting your life in your hands to talk to a handful of people. You don’t even know how long you can minister.”
The day finally ended.  Safe in our hotel in Las Vegas I now prepared my heart to speak to whoever shows up.  What an amazing feeling the next day when they told me that over 90 pastors and leaders were ready to hear the Word of God.
They were beyond ready.  The pulled on the anointing.  I knelt on the floor.  I paced the room.  I sat in a chair on stage.  The point is that I was able to passionately cast the vision for Living Proof Las Vegas.  I ministered for over an hour!  A fired up army is born!
I got home safely.  I had no damage to my spine.  Now I know I will be ready for the tent when we begin a mighty crusade on Sunday Mother’s day May 13th until Friday the 18th.
Please pray for this crusade.  Please pray for the Mother’s day outreach especially.  We are using a new tactic.  Door to door in the inner city, we are giving away roses to every mom.  We are asking them to order their sons and daughters to come to the tent as their gift for Mother’s day.
All I can tell you is that the enemy suffered a great defeat.  Unity, faith and joy drenched us all in this meeting.  I would go so far as to say that I have never had a more powerful luncheon with leaders in 50 years of ministry.

Their war is against us not Trump

Comey and Mueller are the tip of the iceberg.  They are small fish in a much bigger tank.  Before we get to that, here’s a quick refresher on what brought us to this point:

Comey breaks the law to save Hillary.  Realizing his cover is blown—at the last minute—he reopens the investigation.  Trump wins.  Comey, Mueller and the deep state—who worked to prevent Trump’s election—pivot to run Trump out of office.

Comey is fired.  Both sides agreed he needed to be fired until Trump did it.  Comey takes the next step in the game plan.  He leaks lies about Trump to the media so that the prechosen Mueller—his friend, and fellow Trump hater—gets in as special prosecutor.  The needed witch hunt begins.  The Russian collusion fairy tales lives on without accountability.  This soap opera is wearing thin on Americans.

The multi-headed monster brainwashes a majority of millennials to believe the values we have honored for thousands of years suddenly are racist, sexist, and must be eradicated.

Mobs scream at conservatives.  Professors invent micro-aggressions, cultural appropriation, and safe places.  Suddenly, victims are everywhere and statutes must be torn down, careers destroyed, insane boycotts enforced, and every crisis must be seized to advance the lie.

They doctor research to create pseudo-sciences about gender, weather, and equality.  Borders are destroyed to fatten the voter rolls of the left.  Because the end justifies the means, the collateral damage doesn’t matter.  Only, now, this cynical viewpoint is losing its hold.

This is war. They don’t have to tell the truth, they can ruin lives with lies, they can even justify the murder of innocent Americans.  This too is becoming outrageous to many who were on the fence.

Social media, news media, and the Democratic Party are only some of the arms of this monster.

The goal to wipe out Judeo-Christian influence in America is now painfully clear to more Americans.  The left is desperate to remove the last firewall against their revolution.  Marriage, parental rights, guns, and civil discourse all must go or they have no hope of winning.

But things are not going according to their plan.  Something unexpected has happened. They are forced to expose their true colors and their true target before they were ready.  Satan is overplaying his hand.  Conservatives and Christians are no longer the only ones who are disgusted.

Here is an example: Jimmy Kimmel asked Roseanne Barr, who now supports Trump, why she had changed.  She said, “I haven’t changed, it’s all of you who have gone wacko left.”  Oops there it is.

A city worker walks into a Motorcycle shop and fines it for flying military flags.  A veteran who was shot three times in combat protested.  The city worker looked at the veteran and said, “you did nothing for our country.”  The video went viral and the city totally backed down and rejected the worker.

Another thing that wasn’t supposed to happen was a creative writing professor at California State University at Fresno who said this about Barbara Bush right after her death:

“Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal,” When people were outraged she said, “this is what it’s like to be an Arab American Muslim American woman with some clout online expressing an opinion. Look at the racists going crazy in my mentions right now,” she tweeted.

The writer taunted those attacking her, said she was a tenured professor who makes $100,000 a year.  “I will never be fired,” she tweeted.  The university said, “oh yes we can.” I don’t believe this woman meant to melt down and manifest this demon.  I believe this extremism is a sign that evil is being driven to extremes.

The left quickly disavowed her but it’s too late. The all too common hatred of the left is out of the bag.  The backlash against her was swift and overwhelming.

We who are filled with the Holy Spirit have a unique advantage and responsibility.  We understand demonic activity.  The entire strategy against our freedom is demonic.  These cracks in the armor of the monster are a sign of answered prayer.  It shows us that our stand against the powers of darkness is working.

The masters of the left don’t want you to realize why Trump is still so popular.  And why Obama, Hillary Clinton, Jerry Brown, and CNN look more and more crazy every day.

We are seeking God for revival.  That is forcing the left to be more extreme and obvious than they want to be.  I am not saying this is going to be an easy battle or that it won’t get worse.  What I am saying is this rush to extremism is a sign we can’t ignore.

Time for us to come into unity.  Time for us to increase our prayers.  Time to expect a gigantic implosion of the war against our freedom.  The war is against us…but if God be for us who can be against us?

 

 

 

Burning down our house

I don’t mention any names in this blog.  I wanted you to see—if you get to see—how extreme things have gotten.  Censorship is no longer just about what you say, it is about what they think you are saying.  Soon they will censor what they think you are thinking.  Consider yourself fortunate if this information is not blocked—or if you got to it before it was. 
I am about to talk to you villains who are burning down our house.  They are using lies and bankrupt ideas to set their fires.  I will use another vehicle that is new to me: I am going to direct this blog directly to the guilty.  I am going to rebuke them.  You may think that is unloving…maybe even unchristian.  That hits on why we have lost so many moral battles. 
To win them—we were told—we must be nice.  We couldn’t have been nicer.  We didn’t win them.  In fact, our niceness made them hate us more.  Love sometimes delivers a “thanks I needed that” message.  Occasionally, the truth should hurt…especially when a nation is at stake.
Wicked people have torched the truth and it’s your children’s future that’s on fire.  It’s time you realized that something truly dark is looming on the horizon. 
Is there hope?  There is great hope.  In fact, it was at a low ebb of faith like this that the Jesus movement exploded.

BURNING DOWN OUR HOUSE

You doused America with flammable lies.  Every room, every stairway, every doorway soaked in combustible falsehoods.  Then you struck the match.  Now the house is burning down.  A five-alarm fire.
Like crazed villagers, you scream “it is for the greater good” as you torch everything in your path.  History chases you pleading: “this has never worked, and it will never work.”  But do you listen?  Reason hunts you down and cries, “you will make the world worse than it was before.” But it doesn’t matter.

You’ll will enforce truth by lying?  You’ll conquer hate with what, new hate?
You’re attacking evil?  Please explain:  After you tell every lie, break every law—and evil not only survives but turns back on you—what truth or law will be left to protect you?  What love, justice, and mercy will be left to build that better world?
I hear some teens declare, “My parents are idiots so ban all the guns.”  Or, “if I can get an AR 15, what’s to stop me from getting a nuclear weapon?”  The entire military maybe?  All this money and attention is being thrown at you because you’re a pawn.  To them you’re no timeless warrior.  To them you’re the flavor of the month.  To them you’re 15 minutes are almost up.
Then there’s the older protesters. The revolution is going to usher in the better world?  Your claim to be “woke” feels more like a joke.  You are flush with hate.  Will you magically be fair—with justice for all—once you have the power?  Face it, you don’t want to end oppression.  You want to be the new oppressor.
You scream “by any means necessary!”  But do you know what is necessary?  Truth, justice, equality, and prosperity come from God—from honoring His Word.  We’ve reaffirmed it for thousands of years.  The only time it has ever gone right for America is when we’ve honored these self-evident truths.  But, does history matter to a mind high on mythical ideology or pot?
You claim science is on your side.  But it is science that refutes you. It is science that knows you falsified your research on gender, weather, and so many things in order to sell your agenda.
Insanity is when you keep doing the same thing over and over again hoping for a new result.  Hate is when you keep the same thing over and over again—even though you know it doesn’t work—because it hurts the right people.
You see nothing wrong with censorship.  You’re fine with rioters shutting down free speech.  You’re okay with sanitizing a religion of hate and twisting the golden words of the Carpenter of Nazareth into hate.
Then there are the sophisticated arsonists.  Governors, special counsels, media CEOs, late night comedians, Senators, all spouting the party line in robotic unison.  You spew the same mantras.  You claim the same sanctimonious ramparts.
“We must make America like California!”  Have you tried to educate a Christian child there?  Have you tried to run a small business there?  Have you tried to eat, sleep, breathe, or find shelter there?  Have you tried to get over the murder of your son, or daughter by someone who wasn’t supposed to be there?  Why would you wish California on the rest of America?

Next is the fire starter who got fired and decided to write a book.  It’s no revelation, it’s a pouty, whiny, rag filled with self-congratulation, half-truths and hate.  A thousand chimps on a thousand typewriters given eons of time could not create such a tower of self-pity and victimhood.
Then there’s you—the sore loser playing with matches.  The crashing bore who stayed at the party too long.  You would rather contaminate the narrative with your delusional entitlement, than let the nation move on.
Finally, there’s the arsonist who couldn’t leave power gracefully.  You were afforded the highest honor and you turned it into a tool to dismantle a nation.  You’re the angry tenant who trashes the apartment.  Only you go one better…you leave toadies in governmental sleeper cells to do your bidding.  You started all the fires you could to keep bringing down the nation.
To all of you comes a solemn warning.  America is not just a country.  There’s something deep in our soil. Something too deep for a Marxist to understand.  And if your hopes and dreams rest in bringing this nation down you just might end up fighting God Himself.  There are millions of people praying at this hour.  They don’t want your brand of country.  They don’t want angry values and hollow promises.  They want freedom.  They fear the Lord…and He watches over them.  You are trying to burn down our house just remember, its not just our house…it’s His.

Preach as if they are stealing your country

Are you preaching to what your people actually face?  Their faith is costing them their jobs.  Their children are being persecuted at school.  Their college is banning their Christian clubs.
When they tell us they want to silence the church—when they tell us their opinion is the only one allowed—when disagreeing will cost you your rights, your job, and even your life—when they burn buildings, protect killers, and convict innocent people—the church should have no response?  Do we sit back and just give away our freedom of religion and speech?
Liberals want a New American Civil War.  They want one party rule.  They say the Republican Party, and Evangelical Christians must be stripped of power.  They want to make America into California.
Peter Leyden, CEO of new media startup Reinvent, and Ruy Teixeira, Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, said this in an article entitled The Great Lesson of California in America’s New Civil War.
They say, “What about the need for checks and balances?  Many Americans might be wary of trusting a political environment where one party has complete control of political power.”
They insist that one party rule is an utter necessity: “America can’t afford more political paralysis. One side or the other must win. This is a civil war that can be won without firing a shot. But it is a fundamental conflict between two worldviews that must be resolved in short order.”  Are these wacko ideas from the fringe?  No, they are mainstream leftist ideology.  We are in a moral civil war.  How shall we preach in moral civil war?
There is a story of tyranny that is our model for this moment.  Terrorists took control of a city and demanded that the entire city become slaves or face death.  It gets worse.  Just to stay alive every man, woman, and child had to agree to have their right eye removed.
The elders of the city begged for them to hold off 7 days so they could send messengers to get help.  Since the terrorists were spoiling for a fight they agreed.
1 Samuel 11:3 is one of the most chilling verses in scripture because it shows the unimaginable horror the people felt: “Then the elders of Jabesh said to him, ‘Hold off for seven days, that we may send messengers to all the territory of Israel.  And then, if there is no one to save us, we will come out to you.’”
Put yourself in the place of those men facing the disfigurement of their wives and children.  If you were one of those elders tasked with choosing messengers—what kind of messengers would you choose?  Who would you choose to go get help?
You would not pick smooth talking salesmen.  You would not want a wordsmith or an entertainer.  You dare not send a psychologist or a life coach.
They had to go get an army.  They had to make people cry and get angry.  They had to convince people—who might believe this was not their fight—to take a stand.
The Bible says they went to Gibeah where King Saul was, and everyone who heard them began to weep.  King Saul was filled with holy rage and galvanized the nation to save the people of Jabesh Gilead in a mighty victory.
Who will save us from the disfigurement of America, and the church, by the left?  What kind of preaching shall we choose to loosen the grip of tyranny and regain our freedom?  The same kind of messengers the elders of Jabesh Gilead choose.
The Holy Spirit is leading preachers to adjust to the new, real world.  He is sending out an urgent appeal: Preach as if they are stealing your country…because they are.  Preach as if your people are suffering under persecution because they are.  If you have the heart, God will give you the words.  Time is running out.
