IS THERE A WORD FROM THE LORD FOR THIS HOUR?

AMERICA IS PAST HOPE AND WILL BE DESTROYED?  AMERICA IS FAVORED AND WILL NEVER BE DESTROYED?  Almost all prophetic words today shout one of those two headlines   Facebook oozes with voices claiming to be prophets or mouthpieces for God.   The internet teems with self-appointed prophets who scream to be heard, bombarding us with “prophetic words.”

So, is there a word of the Lord in this hour?  All I can tell you is I walk in the fear of the Lord and the constant remembrance that one day I will stand before God and give an account for every word I have spoken.  Yet, for all that reverential fear my bones burn with a word for this hour.    

My Spirit can’t hold it back:

That to autonomously pronounce judgement is to play God.  Doomsdayers are calling off the attack against evil when God has not.  They are sounding a false retreat.  They are making evangelism futile.  They are helping put souls in hell by discouraging soul-winners.

Don’t lie to yourself.  Don’t make up prophecies of judgement just because you are mad at the church.  Face it!  Your righteous indignation may be nothing more than a personal grudge that your ministry was rejected by the church.

However, the great danger is not an abundance of prophets of doom.  It is the false prophets of grace and entitlement who are most dangerous.

In a wonderful book entitled The American Miracle written by Michael Medved, we see astounding and undeniable examples of God stepping in when America seemed beyond hope.  However, these examples are not proof that judgement won’t come.  To assume this is sheer madness.

I want to use George Washington as an example of something that desperately needs to be said to the American church.  Washington died because of medical malpractice.  Back then doctors believed in bleeding sick patients.  Washington was already weak from his sickness—by taking blood out, the doctors made him weaker and finally killed him.  It was the worst thing they could have done.

Listen church!  Cheap grace is bleeding an already weakened church.   It helps set us up for national destruction.   For Satan, this the perfect theology.   Instead of a life-giving conviction and a robust will to fight—this perversion induces drowsiness and apathy.

Why do you think so any of our pastors are closet alcoholics and addicted to porn?  And what can you expect a poisoned vessel to preach on Sunday morning?

Past miracles don’t guarantee future mercy.  They should awaken urgency, overpowering gratitude, humility, and profound soul searching.  Throwing ourselves off the cliff of morality to prove the power of Grace tempts God and provokes wrath.

God is trying to show us the times and what to do: 1 Chronicles 12: 32 “of the sons of Issachar who understood the times, to know what Israel ought to do.” The entire chapter lists the military talent of each tribe of Israel.  This gift was Issachar’s weapon

Next, “prophets” who say America will be destroyed or who say America cannot be destroyed are dead wrong.  We are neither pardoned nor condemned.  Our fate has not yet been decided.

We are living in a moment of mercy: HOW SOON WE FORGET!  We were spared the horror of Hillary—the finishing touch of Obama’s death spiral—a permanently enslaving national debt—A Supreme Court chaining us to anti-God laws, freedom-killing environmentalism—open borders bringing perpetual Democratic control, crime and terrorism.

Trump’s election was a miracle meant to ignite the church.  His time is Washington will be short, ineffective and we will end up worse off than ever if the church fails to obey God. 

Trump has had missteps as president.  This does not mean he was the wrong choice.  Would we dare abandon him so soon?   He needs our prayers.  He needs our support.

Here are the precise verses for this hour:  Ezra 9:  8 “And now for a little while grace has been shown from the Lord our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a peg in His holy place, that our God may enlighten our eyes and give us a measure of revival in our bondage. 9 For we were slaves. Yet our God did not forsake us in our bondage; but He extended mercy to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to revive us, to repair the house of our God, to rebuild its ruins, and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem.”

 

If, after all the mercy God has demonstrated—in a miraculous election—we fail to repent, rise and take our rightful place in America’s future…we can be destroyed. 

Listen again to Ezra:

Ezra 9:13 “And after all that has come upon us for our evil deeds and for our great guilt, since You our God have punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and have given us such deliverance as this, 14 should we again break Your commandments, and join in marriage with the people committing these abominations? Would You not be angry with us until You had consumed us, so that there would be no remnant or survivor?”

Wrath comes when you do not properly respond to mercy:  2 Chronicles 32: 25 “But Hezekiah did not repay according to the favor shown him, for his heart was lifted up; therefore, wrath was looming over him and over Judah and Jerusalem.”

Look again at Ezra’s words: but He extended mercy to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to revive us, to repair the house of our God, to rebuild its ruins, and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem.”

Trump is a temporary reprieve.  Now we must do our part.  We must act on the mercy we have been shown.  He extended mercy so that we would do three things: Revive, Repair and Rebuild. 

Revive: God commands us to seek a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  We dare not have church without it!  We dare not utter another word in the pulpit that denies it!  The word of the Lord for this hour is: cry out to God with heart of gratitude for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

Here is the key promise if we do: 1 Samuel 10: 6 Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. 7 And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.

Repair:  The pulpit and our moral compass is broken.  They must be repaired!  Our wiring, plumbing and foundations are damaged.  Abortion and marriage are issues we lost because our leadership was broken.  We abandoned the Bible and did not arm ourselves or the congregation with convictions.

 

America needs Lions who roar from a righteous heart.  Away with secret sin and lukewarm grace.  Prayer will repair.  The voice that shakes hell and frees men and women from bondage is forged only in fervent prayer.  Satan does not respect your stage presence, education or tactics.  He knows a prayerless poser.  He only retreats before men and women who have been to Gethsemane.

Rebuild: We must come home to the Glorious Gospel.  We must dismantle all the silly things we have tried to say to this generation.  Forget about rebranding!  We need to rebuild our sermons from the ground up.  Let them be replete with Bible Verses.  Let them talk of the mighty God.  Fill them with content the Holy Spirit can use on lost souls!  The Good News must once again roll off our tongue in the office, on campus and at the mall.

The consequences of cheapening God’s mercy are too terrible to imagine.  The opportunity this miracle has opened is too wonderful to ignore.  That is the word of the Lord for this hour.

  1. Thank You!

    We went through near and dear times in the 70’s with basically the same “prophetic voices”…

    IMHO Jehovah’s answer was, when the main stream churches didn’t get the message, The Jesus People Movement.

    But, with the current performance/concert oriented youth I am not sure where or who Jehovah will find this time!

    And, us “old folks” are just too worn out…

    But, as Ezekiel was asked, Can these dry bones live?

    Now we have similar “prophetic voices” saying basically the same thing…

    But, a true prophet doesn’t prognosticate, a true prophet calls Jehovah’s People to Repentance and Revival!

    And, I am tired of folks who all they want to pummel me with is what this “prophet” or that “prophet” said…

    Our Father is looking for True Worshipers, those who do not perform but Worship in Spirit and in Truth…

    At times Militant in Praise, at times Fervently Passionate in Worship. But, at all times Honest and Open before Him who is Life itself….

  2. YES, Brother. The window God has graciously given us may be closing quickly. Father please help us all to see that clearly and act accordingly all across our nation and beyond. President Trump and those in his administration who still believe they have a higher purpose and are loyal to him and our Republic.

  3. Blessings. May I copy this word and post it on my Facebook? Do not want to do anything wrong here.

    Thank you and be blessed.

  4. What an excellent post I fully witness with this as God has had me praying With our group in the U.K. since August 2017 when one morning God gave me the following: God said the following to Young Jeremiah in Jeremiah chapter 1 “Behold (hear Me), I have put My words in your mouth. 10 “See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, To uproot and break down, To destroy and to overthrow, To build and to plant.”

    God showed me something today as I read these words and I would like to share it as it I believe it is Gods perspective on what is happening in societies today. As I sat He spoke to me about a garden where there had been no Gardner for years and the garden was all full of weeds, plants that had grown to suckers ( with no beauty left in them) and a place where all sorts of dangerous creatures could hide without being seen. It looked absolutely horrendous and impossible to change and cultivate it again. I believe we need to see how bad things have become before we understand what is really happening. Society has become like that overgrown with weeds and poisonous plants that seem to have choked all of the beauty out of it like that garden. However as a Christian God is saying to us it is never too late to bring restoration and cultivate a beautiful healthy garden producing seed bearing plants and trees and shrubs which if tended with love and care will blossom again. In order to begin that restoration we have to uproot all the weeds and overgrown plants and break down all the poisonous plants to destroy them and overthrow them by digging them up and burning them and clearing the ground of all of the roots and stones etc we expose all the dangerous creatures that lurk there and so they leave as they no longer can hide. Only then can we begin to build and to plant to restore the garden, to water it and feed the plants with healthy nutrients to allow strong beautiful healthy trees and plants that produce good seeds and good fruit. This is Gods picture of what has happened in our society and He is exposing all of the things that are making our society so dangerous. All the those things that deny the Truth all those things that are destroying moral values all those deceptions that are allowing people to believe lies about life and about themselves. The eroding and breakdown of family life and the arrogance and lawlessness and destructive heresies and ungodly ideologies that are murdering and destroying life. It is a wake up call to all of us who see this. In order to bring the change and restoration we need to seek God and humble ourselves and pray and ask God to hear our cry and come and heal our land. As we do that then we will see the uprooting and pulling down of everything that is wrong as God pours out His Spirit on our country once again. We are already beginning to see the green roots appearing as people are standing for the Truth once again and speaking the truth into situations where there has been lies promoted. It is happening on all of the social media and we are see a backlash of ungodly crude and derogatory words against those who speak out bringing truth to expose the lies. I believe God is saying keep praying against it, keep speaking the Truth, keep loving people and praying for them as we wrestle in prayer against the evil and wickedness that is behind all of this. It may look impossible but if we stand against this tide of evil and destructive heresies in prayer God will shake their foundations and their plans will come to nothing. I would therefore encourage all of us who trust God to begin to pray and whenever possible speak out for truth and justice as God leads us.

    1. Maureen, I am hearing the same from the Lord. I’m praying that believers hearts will be awakened and ignited by Holy Spirit to intercede, live and speak truth, and catch the vision God has for us. Thank you for your message.

  5. been praying like I’ve never prayed before, but the churches don’t want to “touch” politics, their service prayers last 30 seconds here and there, they are useless and weak.They are good people with good hearts that are very poor leaders. Never feel the Spirit move there so I stopped going. Hoping that so many like us have been taking matters into our own hands- straight to God. Even many of the good Christian leaders taking the message online are woefully neglecting leading us with our most POWERFUL weapon against the evil- PRAYER.

    We must NOT give up hope and continue petitioning and repenting to God. It is easy to get lured into depression and hopelessness (and I’ve seen many usually strong Christian leaders online get sucked into that trap) due to the iron clad control satan has over the media, feeding us lies and deceit non-stop. It’s building the illusion of being up against giants. In reality I think we are the silent MAJORITY that is growing every day, waking new people up every day. You can see more and more hearts turning to God and turning away from Babylon- walking away from their tools of control! With every single new exposure of the truth and the true nature of the people in control and even around our every day lives, God is showing us the hidden, uncloaking evil! We must pray for this to continue and to result in people choosing His Kingdom!

  6. Mario is back from what must have been an astounding victory for the gospel of Christ in Houston through Mario’s preaching!…and so relevant, Mario your words are definitely the word for today.
    Heather also has some acute insights…that’s the way to extrapolate Heather!
    I’m trying to SPREAD the good news of the Gospel of The Kingdom due to the reality that far too many people in general (and even in the Household of Faithful Believers) don’t have enough information regarding modern human governments and how they operate, too many people today have no frame of reference to what being a “member citizen of a kingdom” would be like, let alone understanding & desiring The Kingdom Of Christ.
    Hope this helps:

  7. I will be 76 years old in September. While many Pastors my age may be thinking, “retirement” I am thinking I am about to experience the most vital years of my life. I am finally seeing past my flesh and realizing this life is not about winding down, it’s about winding up to the point of release of power from God that only comes through seasoning through failure, pain, persistence and seeking. Your message is encouraging, enlightening and deep water. Thank You. You spoke a word over me back in the late 70’s at a college in Oakland, CA., picked me out of the audience. I was there to hear an old friend, Chuck Girard who I sang with in high school. Don’t remember the specific word, but I do remember the power.

    1. Thank you Laude Hays for you comment. You’re right in saying this is the most vital years of my life. I feel this in my spirit also. I do get frustrated sometimes with myself but, as you also stated, “persistence and seeking”, is the key. THank you

  8. You are speaking truth. I will intercede for the leaders, the whole body of Christ, and our nation to come to radical repentance before the Lord. We must choose truth. We must follow Jesus and pick up our cross. We must be salt and light in this world. Thank you for your words.❤️

  9. PLEASE UNDERSTAND! PRESIDENT TRUMP IS THE CYRUS OF OUR DAY, FOUND IN THE BOOK OF ISAIAH, CHAPTER 45 – 47. YOU WILL ALSO FIND HILARY CLINTON AND THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IN CHAPTER 47. GOD IS IN CONTROL.
    THE CHURCH IS IN CONTROL THROUGH PRAYER, AND GOD WANTS TWO THINGS FROM A BELIEVER.
    1. SELL OUT TO JESUS AND 2. LOVE EVERYONE AS YOURSELF. MARIO, IF YOU WANT ME TO COME AND PREACH THIS, I WILL, UNDER THE ANOINTING.
    LOVE IN CHRIST,
    RUBEN DOMINGUEZ.
    831-809-9494

  10. MARIO,
    I BELIEVE WITH MY BOLDNESS, FAITH AND LOVE OF GOD. YOU AND I COULD BECOME A TAG TEAM, “SONS OF THUNDER” FOR THE LORD. I DON’T KNOW HOW IT COULD HAPPEN, HOWEVER TWO PUT 10,000 TO FLIGHT AND 1 JUST PUTS 1000 TO FLIGHT. YOUR MINISTRY COULD HAVE 10 TIMES THE EFFECT ON THIS GENERATION. I OWN AND OPERATE A SUCCESSFUL REAL ESTATE COMPANY, HOWEVER I WOULD BE WILLING TO GIVE UP TO SERVE THE LORD FULL TIME. YOU PRAY ABOUT THIS, I AM THROWING THIS THOUGHT OUT THERE, IF GODS IN IT, IT WILL HAPPEN, IF NOT. THEN KEEP ON KEEPING ON AND I WILL CONTINUE TO WIN SOULS ONE ON ONE AND SELL REAL ESTATE. LOVE YOU BROTHER AND AM GRATEFUL TO THE LORD WHO HAS USED YOU SO MANY TIMES IN MY LIFE. TWO MAJOR HEALING’S, CANCER AND A HEART CONDITION AND TWO PROPHECIES.
    THE LORD CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU.
    RUBEN DOMINGUEZ

  11. I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before Me in the gap on behalf of the land so that I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one.
