Because I support Trump, they stopped helping us win souls. Funds for winning souls pulled? Because I stand for Trump? Won’t get involved in a soul winning crusade because of Trump? That’s an ugly truth. In some cases, they have allowed their hatred of Trump to trump their love for lost souls.
We got nothing but support in Texas. But, resistance from other places drained and distracted us, forcing Houston and San Antonio to be cancelled.
Some who promised help, and have helped for years, have stopped. Others falsely accused me of talking about Trump all the time. Did you know that only 5% of my blogs have featured Trump? Most of my posts deal with spiritual warfare, sound doctrine, revival, and reports of our work.
Leaders have said they can’t be a part of rallies that are political. This shows me they have not been to any of our outreaches. In the tent, I rarely, if ever mention Trump. Not because I am afraid, but because I am consumed by the message of Christ for lost souls and miracles for those who need healing. In a tent full of hurting people there’s no time for anything else.
And by the way, shame on you if that is why you didn’t get involved.
Others claim youth are turned off by my message. The notion that youth stay away because I support our President is totally false. They are not staying away. If fact, we have a crisis of opportunity. Our youth are hungry for God. What we do have is a critical shortage of workers.
There are thousands of millennials out there connecting with what I am saying. Here’s just one sample of emails I receive:
“Every word you speak always touches my soul and spirit in a way I cannot explain. I’m a millennial head over heels in love with Jesus and laying low like how you speak about. I don’t comment on these things, but I have to tell you that us young ones are the Joshua generation! We have been sick of our parents and whomever, sinning and lying and complaining and leading us away from the truth…from God…from Jesus. We’ve had enough, and we are here to serve the Lord in love and be nothing like our ancestors. The separation has begun. I look forward to every post you write!” -Love and prayers from fellow brothers and sisters in FL
Now here is a comment from a “Christian” with the mindset that opposes our soul winning. He calls my support for Trump “the greatest blasphemy.” He even issues his condemnation in the form of a prayer! “And here before you, my Lord, are the ones who have engraved their names in testimony to their blasphemies; their turning away from and against defense of the meek, the powerless, the peaceful, those who love others of your flock regardless of their name or color or race or gender. Mine is not to judge; it is only to weep for them. For they follow a false prophet, and I am saddened they have been steered from your path and then evangelize it as if it was your gospel. It is the greatest of blasphemies.”-John
If these timid souls really cared about the poor and the defenseless, they join us in the inner city feeding and clothing the poor instead of pontificating from the bleachers.
We speak out because we understand why America must remain strong, free and under the rule of law. This pseudo-pacifism—that would make a hippie blush—is what got in this mess in the first place. It was the church’s silence that brought us to the brink.
So, I went to the Lord and He gave me Proverbs 20:3 “A man of honor withdraws his foot from strife.” And that is exactly what I doing…I am withdrawing. Because I am withdrawing from strife, I will not mention any names, so please don’t bother asking. Because I am withdrawing you will never hear me talk about this again. I am only telling you because people deserve to know what happened.
This cancellation is especially frustrating because there are many who do support us and would have stepped up instantly. We just got side swiped on this one. I take much of the responsibility for failing to see the trap sooner. The Holy Spirit showed me my failings in this situation. I should never have allowed this to happen.
-The most important thing is that He is training us for power, wisdom, discernment, and love to move to a new level of freedom to reach masses of youth and not be held back.
– We will also not back down. We will continue to warn America and the church about the demonic agenda of the left. But never at the expense of preaching the Gospel!
–Because we are innocent, God will provide abundantly. We have learned a big lesson and the enemy will pay for what he has done.
This is just a speed bump. Momentum is strong at Mario Murillo Ministries. We have cities lined up for tent crusades. And we are going back to the two we missed. This was a gigantic fluke I am certain will never happen again.
