A WAVE OF PERSECUTION IS UPON US BUT IT WILL BACKFIRE

 

The mood—the one that pleases people when Christians are harassed and blamed, is upon us.  I am warning you it’s about to spike, and the mindless ferocity of it will surprise you.

I was led to a specific moment like this recorded in the Book of Acts: Acts 12:1-3, “Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. 2 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.”

As I prayed, I experienced colliding emotions of dread and excitement.  The Holy Spirit made it clear that persecution against Christians is going to spike in the United States in the next few months.  He also made it clear that this would touch off a towering flow of miracles of healing.

Satan wants America destroyed.   It is the grand prize.  With America gone, the devil can unleash worldwide devastation.   But the global tyranny that he craves cannot happen until the American firewall is removed.

He also knows that he can only destroy America from within.  Somehow, he must pit us against each other. 

The only deterrent to civil war at this point is Christianity.  Notice that I do not say the church, I say Christianity.  The church is sidelined by equal parts division and denial.  The Christianity seeping out despite religion is the only thing protecting us.

The devil’s weapon of choice is hate.  He must foment hate.  Today, that hate is coming from the very people claiming to be fighting hate: secular progressives, and social justice warriors.  You have seen how the things that were once loving, moral and trustworthy, including marriage, manhood, military service, freedom of speech, witnessing, the Bible and, yes, freedom itself, are now hateful.

 

God has been lovingly warning the American Church.  He has repeatedly ordered the church to stand as one against immorality, but she has flatly refused.  God now reserves the right to use persecution to wake up the church and spare the nation.

Is there any good news in this?  There is much good news, but only for a certain group.  The core of Christians who refuse to side with the compromised church, and who are seeking Jesus, will be protected and used mightily.  Persecution will backfire!

The boomerang effect is seen in ancient Israel.  Exodus 1:12 says “But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites.”

After Herod arrested Peter, an angel appeared and brought him out.  This miracle ignited the church.  I am telling you what the Holy Spirit has told me.  Every vessel that seeks God right now will receive greater power and greater miracles.

Call it legend, call me crazy, but I know that this wave of persecution is here.  We can turn it all around.  We can regain lost ground.  Those who disobey God cannot escape this misery and those who obey God will granted special grace and increased supernatural power.

Paul wrote to a worried Philippian church to tell them about the shock outcome of his imprisonment.  It serves as a promise to us of what is about to happen as a result of persecution in America.

Philippians 1:12 “And I want you to know this, dear brothers: Everything that has happened to me here has been a great boost in getting out the Good News concerning Christ. 13 For everyone around here, including all the soldiers over at the barracks, knows that I am in chains simply because I am a Christian. 14 And because of my imprisonment, many of the Christians here seem to have lost their fear of chains! Somehow my patience has encouraged them, and they have become more and more bold in telling others about Christ.”

  1. amen brother thank’s, we are in prison and in chain’s from sickness, but I believe God is about to set us free. I never dreamed the church was so bound, and infiltrated by evil. She hate’s the truth of the word of God, she stopped seeking his face and started seeking thing’s, and all this evil has come in a corrupted there spirit and soul. God Bless brother good word

  2. The Holy Spirit spoke to me from the story where Peter and the Church is being threatened and they pray and say Lord see their threats against us and they gather to worship and ask God to grant them power to do mighty signs and miracles in your name. That is exactly what the Lord did and this stopped the threats and many were added to the church. This is exactly the scenario you are speaking of Mario. I pray in agreement with you for this to happen again. God bless you. 🙏🙌🏻🔥

  3. Yes Mario, there is a ‘strange & unusual punishment’ for believing and belonging to Christ Jesus The King, that has been leveled against the Beloved of God and is increasing.
    Yet we who belong to The LORD, always Triumph in Christ to the Glory of God The Father. Amen. ⚜️🔔♚🤴🏼

  4. I am hearing “ Come out!” I am seeing and hearing Come out of Babylon.” The system of the compromised, seeker friendly, self serving system of Baal.
    James 4:4-10
    Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
    Or do you think that the scripture says in vain, The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealousy?
    But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.
    Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
    Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double minded.
    Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom.
    Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.

  5. Rev Murrilo . . . . My spirit and the Holy Spirit living in me leap with excitement when I read your articles. My spirit is edified and absorbs them like a sponge. It is not enough to just say thank you for your dedication and discipline to hear and communicate what the Lord is saying at this time. It is a job we all have as well. This is really a small thing, but something happened yesterday while I was working . . . I’ve been a cashier for 2 years in a small retail store since I was 60 and needed a job to supplement our income mostly due to Obama’s destructive policies that led to our business of 30 years closing and subsequently filing bankruptcy in 2016. For 2 years I’ve seen all types of people. Cashiers usually do. But, this is the first time I’ve seen this T-Shirt, “Jesus Sucks” and if I read it correctly it said under it “Satan Rocks” or something about Satan. I saw “Satan” under the first part clearly but there was another word I couldn’t read in those few moments while she was standing there. I first noticed her in my line with her black hair, white face, earrings that resembled the “nails” a several piercings, a couple of tattoos that I think we’re of an unholy nature but I couldn’t stare at them long enough to know for sure. She was buying black artificial roses, and 3 pillar candles in glass like the type in stores that Catholics buy, but these had black wax and were from our Halloween section. As a cashier, I represent the company I work for, but sometimes there are things I just have to speak out. Many times I say nice, I controversial things to people when I sense a sweet spirit from them. You can tell instantly. Other times I hold my tongue trying to use wisdom. But yesterday before she got away, I said, “your T-Shirt says, Jesus Sucks, do you really believe that?” In her best monotone, millinial voice, she said, “It’s just a T-Shirt, I don’t believe anything.” These kinds of people, and there are millions of them, are a blank slate for what is being hurled at them by the media, social media and the progressives. In the future, I just might lose my job for saying something like that but that girl allows it, the Holy Spirit might be able to break through to her spirit that is so smothered by the god of this world.

  6. Dear Brother Mario, Hi, my name is Kevin Skaggs, and I live in Killeen, TX.  I’ve been reading your commentaries for the past two months or so.  I like your preaching very much, and I would ask a small favor for prayer.  I’m not in great shape spiritually, but am praying for healing by the Lord.  Since my life hasn’t been what it should have been, I was told not to preach, but I was told to tell others about Jesus Himself.  I wear Christian T-shirts out in public and some times people ask me about them.  I don’t often know what to tell people who are not saved.  I often feel that I handle it wrong.  Beyond wearing these shirts, I’m not sure what to do.  Perhaps you could say a prayer for me that the Lord will talk to me about everything and let me know what to do and say?  I would surely appreciate it!  I’m sure that you are very busy, and I’ll keep this note short.  Thank you for your time brother!  Sincerely, Your brother in Christ, Jon Kevin Skaggs
