PUT AWAY YOUR TOYS AND TAKE UP THE MIGHTY WEAPONS OF GOD

Future generations of Christians—if there be any—will be profoundly baffled by us.  They will ask why—why did we let trivial and foolish matters eat up so much time?  They will agonize over our shallowness.  They will cringe at our amusements.

But above all, they will be horrified that we played all these foolish games against the backdrop of madness and perversion.  In a time of raging wickedness—while we still had the chance—why didn’t we rise in the power of the Holy Spirit?  Why didn’t we deliver an effective challenge to the lies, addictions, and brainwashing of our time?

Not everyone can bear what I am about to say.  The fair-weather Christian and the make believer will shrink before the high calling I am about to describe.  But those who heed this call, and awaken to do their duty, deserve the love and thanks of every true child of God in America.

Paul said, “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” -1 Corinthians 13:11

It is childish to linger in stupefying religious echo chambers.  It is childish to mingle with delicate, debilitated, and depleted believers.  It is childish to hide behind the towering lie that our God is unable to build mighty warriors.

I am looking you right in the eye, with a long and steady gaze.  I am mustering all the conviction in my soul.  I am begging you…PUT AWAY YOUR TOYS AND TAKE UP THE MIGHTY WEAPONS OF GOD.

 

Tyranny, like hell will not loosen its grip easily.  But you have this great comfort—the greater the conflict the more glorious the final victory.  You will be granted the honor and thrill of front line participation in the greatest thing God has ever done in the earth.

It is time to pay the price.  Things gotten cheaply are lightly esteemed.  The gold you seek is worth every drop of sweat—every mournful tear—every sacrifice.

Satan trembles at your advance to this higher calling.  Evil quakes at your deliverance from compromise and cowardice.  Hell asks “will they actually take up their rightful weapons and do us great harm?   Let your soul roar an eternal YES!

What can we do about the demons that are strangling America?  Can we dismantle their ramparts?  They have brought bitter division, mass addiction, and total deception.  Can we stop them?  Not only can we, it is our sworn duty to tear them down.

The Bible says “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God…2 Corinthians 10:4,5

If we can’t tear down strongholds, God is guilty of child abuse of the highest order.  If our weapons are not mighty, He is guilty of letting Paul awaken a deep hope that can never be fulfilled.  The whole point of 2 Corinthians 10: 4 and 5 was to provoke the church to destroy fortresses of Satan by taking up the mighty weapons of God.

The Bible says, “cast down every high thing.”  The traitorous preaching and teaching of today says there is very little we can do.  So many preachers today remind us, “it’s all in God’s hands.” That may seem a comforting thought, but it is wrong—it creates passivity.  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…”

God has chosen to act in answer to prayer.  He waits until His people rise and take their rightful place in the arena of battle.  Young David saw the stalemate.  No one challenged Goliath.  David couldn’t stand it. He offered himself to God.

God is looking for someone like that today—someone who can’t live with evil, who can’t stomach the perversion, and is enraged to see God dishonored.  Someone God can use to turn the tide of America.

If there is one question this blog asks it is this:  Are you so filled with holy rage that you are willing to lay down every impediment to provide God with an opportunity to vindicate His name before this blasphemous generation?  Will you put away your toys?

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

  1. big amen Preach it, tell it like it is, he called us as mighty warrior’s who can stop all this crazy mess going on, They say God is in control and they do nothing, well in my bible Jesus said he left us power and auth0ority to tread upon scorpion’s and snake’s and all the power of the enemy, my question is WHY DID HE LEAVE US POWER AND AUTHORITY IF WE ARE TO DO NOTHING, HE LEFT US POWER AND AUTHORITY TO STOP THESE DEVIL’S, we just got lazy, BUT THE TRUTH IS HE LEFT US IN CHARGE DOWN HERE AND HE WILL NOT DO ANYTHING UNTIL WE DO WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSE TO DO, Jesus died on that cross and he told us to pick up our cross deny our selve’s and follow him, in other word’s now you do what I did, I leave you power to defeat the enemy as I did, but you must stand and fight, or he will take back everything I and the Apostle’s died to give you, FREEDOM ISN’T FREE, it cost every generation or we shame the one’s who died before us to give us freedom, we need soldier’s and warrior’s who will fight and do battle as the Apostle’s did, people who don’t love this life and this world more than any thing, people who don’t care to ruffle feather’s when some one is going against the word of God, and trying to force this perversion on our children and our grandchildren, that is a disgrace that should make every Christian madder than a old wet setting hen, if you can sit by and allow this you need go to the altar again, we have allowed all this mess under a passive church and Dems, and I am going to say this plain, if you stand for them evil devil’s you will be held accountable, and also take part in there evil, good does not mix with evil, and they will be held accountable for it, good is good and bad is bad, no matter what color your shin is, there’s people I can’t even thank because they try to encourage me, because the prophet’s of baal and Jezebel[ the church mofia ] attack them and one is sick, but they listen and spy on what I say, and there little messenger’s of satan tell them, and they threaten them, for trying to encourage me, That how far part of the church has gotten away from God, these sorcerer’s and fortune teller’s have come in and we don’t have enough of God to know it, we need discerning of spirit’s back among the body, IT’S PAST TIME WE BEOME THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD YAHWEH I am sick of the lie Jesus did it all and we don’t have to do any thing, that’s the whole problem we don’t do any thing, and we need to do our Job, some people don’t need to be preaching. God Bless you for preaching the truth. brother Mario.

    This gave me pause, mostly because, while not the focus, it leaves the impression that we are to abdicate our roles as men and women of faith who are called to encourage and disciple one another.

    I hear this all the time, in a different light, about being around negative people or people who are down all the time.

    Here’s the deal…

    If we are not strong enough to lift others up, then we need to hear Jesus’ call to come to His side watch and pray and gain strength for the battle.

    “Come away my beloved” is not a call to walk away from the battle, but to return to “base camp”, get additional training and then rejoin the fight.

    We need to go to Him who is able to purify our salt, so that we may in turn build up, strengthen and encourage others to do likewise.

    There are many military allegories in the Bible…

    The question I have to ask is what kind of Army are we…

    Leave no man behind, or shoot our own wounded…

    1. I think he is referring to those having a form of godliness but denying the power. 2 Tim 3:5
      and from my experience 2 Tim 3:7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Christians that never grow up. I see it all the time.
      And those teaching a watered down gospel. Paul said in 1Cor. 1:17
      For Christ did not send me to babtize, but to preach the gospel, not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.
      We cannot baby people. We have to speak truth. That’s why hearing the Holy Spirit is so important. He knows what people need to hear. We cannot speak from our soul or our perspective it must be from Him. The Lord told me one time. “ I am the Truth, why would I speak anything else? It’s Truth that sets us free.”
      When Truth is presented people will either choose to hold on to whatever their issue is or embrace it repent and be healed.

    2. We will never move forward expanding the Kingdom with those whose hearts are not fully committed to the task, free from selfcenterdness , fearing nothing but the Living God. That being said we are to disciple others toward becoming warriors fit for the battle. Having helped disciple thousands for the cause of missions around the world you need both things at the same time. Many never make it to the point of becoming effective , mature warriors because they refuse to pay the price. As scripture shows many will get caught up in the things of this world because they don’t consider Jesus worth everything. If you are going to war you will never have victory with delicate, debilitated, depleted believers, many will choose to not pay the price for the victory, some need more training to get ready. Those without any committment to advancing will never make it. Jesus didnt spend time with those that were unwilling to follow, but He gave 3 1/2 years of His life 24/7 to those who gave it all.

  4. Reblogged this on The Warrior Anointing and commented:
    Amen and Amen! We must stand now or we will be slaves to all we abhor! We must not ever allow the left to take power again. We must stand and fight now like never before! How do we fight? On our knees in prayer and by our daily uncompromising walk!

  5. Mario once again you’ve preached profoundly the Truth among us.
    The 2 Corinthians 10: scripture is without a doubt my personal original favorite, I memorized it early on in my Christian journey’s warfare battles…particularly this is the hard part…”and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ…“
    Today it seems increasingly obvious that satan’s strategy is the battlefield of the self exalted mind! This includes but is not limited to the so-called “lofty” thinkers who have the notion that what they think & say is equivalent to profundity?! So they think they are another sexual identity other than how they were born into this earthen existence and so they say they are what they say they think they are in their “lofty” opinion. Then the civil government makes agreement with it?…WOW, what temerity of the mind. Some think to themselves they have Grace and so their opioid drug addiction is merely a bad habit and they say but God forgives them in advance of it, and they keep using. Then there’s the religious spirited, they think they’re not sinners like the ‘rest’ of those who don’t go to their particular local church favorite, and by so saying and thinking that way, they exercise blanket incredulity as to the reason, purpose and valid doctrine of God’s Grace. I like the way the Holman Christian Standard Bible Version records “the pulling down of strongholds,” it calls it the DEMOLITION of strongholds and arguments. Amen!

  6. FAR too many Christians CAN’T heed that call because they’re stuck in churches across that land that are filled with Paganism – and few are even away of it! They’re STUCK because of it and deny that there is any Paganism IN their church, when it’s CLEAR there is – they cling to Easter & Christmas as if they’ll drown without those Pagan holidays!

    God said “COME OUT OF HER!” He knows Paganism is choking today’s churches and it has been ever since the 3rd century when Constantine created a new religion in Rome, to be inclusive of all the Pagans there!

    The first followers of the Messiah were called “The Way” and they were mostly Jews, with a few Gentiles and they ALL kept Torah! WHY? Because Yeshua lived and taught Torah to show US how to live it!

    We keep the Lord’s Feasts and Sabbaths because we want to show our love for Him and because He gave us Salvation! We don’t do it FOR Salvation, but BECAUSE of Salvation!

    Come OUT of the Pagan church and pick up your sword and FOLLOW Him!!

  7. This is why God has raised up Mario! A prophet to our generation. The things that are going on in the world, point to the coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Pray for this President he has been anointed by the Lord and chosen to lead our country back to it’s roots. We are a Judeo-Christian Nation and our God is Jesus Himself. There is no other! The Word is clear, there is no other name, except the Name of Jesus where a man can be saved. Country! Wake Up! Are you on God’s side or Man’s (The World) side! You better choose before it’s to late. May The Lord be with the body of Christ and bless us with wisdom and the power of The Holy Spirit. PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME!

  8. I will throw my two cents worth into this debate. I pastored many years, and for the last 11 years have had a travelling ministry. Too many churches remind me of being in “The Night of the Living Dead.” People are dead spiritually, or at least sound asleep. Pastors are frustrated at the lack of life or of zeal. I am convinced that in some churches, demonic strongholds rule the church, and not the Holy Spirit. Many churches should put a sign out for evangelists who come, “DO NOT DISTURB.” I burn inside when I see lukewarmness instead of Fire in churches. Mario hit the nail on the head. Some won’t like it. Some say, well that’s just the way it is, so they settle into a rut, and the just exist there. I see pastors who have surrendered because they are worn out from trying to light a Spirit fire in their people. This nation and world desperately needs only one thing: Holy Ghost Fire. And few are seeking it, and many simple don’t want it anymore. But it is the only hope.
