The Bravest Christians

To pursue something that Satan hates above all else is brave. To seek something millions of lukewarm Christians deem impossible is the essence of bravery.

Why do they choose to be on this dangerous path? What are they chasing? What started them on this mad pursuit?

They were ruined when they read or heard about something God did in history and they can’t shake the conviction, passion and electric expectation for God to do it again.

They seek a true revival—a moral awakening—a reformation on their nation.

Maybe you are one of them.  You walk around with an unearthly frustration. You hear the cry of some wonderful, invisible event that wants to be born. Other Christians think you are odd or in need of help.

Let’s face it! The thought of a nationwide penetration of righteousness, of a true revival, seems so unreal.  We can’t even remember the last time the roar of God was heard in the land.

We can’t remember the times in American history when mayors or major cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Denver, and Portland proclaimed revival, and closed city offices and business to go to churches and pray.

The sheer magnitude of what past revivalists report is so amazing it leaves many in stunned disbelief.  How could God overtake entire cities in America and reverse the course of our nation?

Many who don’t believe it, or don’t want to believe it, dismiss these historical facts as exaggeration. They look at the evil of our time and the hard hearts of our generation.  They see the rampant lawlessness.  They witness the intense hatred toward godliness.  They also see the vicious storm that most churches are facing right now.  They see the riots, demonstrations, perversion, and wonder how could God ever work in America again?

I am writing this to you to ask you to have a special kind of courage. I want you to begin praying in a way you never thought possible. I want you to join me in confessing that God can do what He did in the past and I want you to demonstrate that you believe it by making room for something big to happen.

I want to see in you the kind of courage that says “it must happen, it will happen and it will not stop.”

First, confess that revival has come before.  That those amazing awakenings did happen. Psalm 44: 1 We have heard with our ears, O God, Our fathers have told us, The deeds You did in their days, In days of old: 2 You drove out the nations with Your hand, But them You planted; You afflicted the peoples, and cast them out. 3 For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, Nor did their own arm save them; But it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, because You favored them.”  Celebrate the awesome history of revivals and admit that it was only God that made America great.

Go ahead and ask for a new act of God on America.  Habakkuk 3:2 “O Lord, I have heard Your speech and was afraid; O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years! In the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy.”

And finally, sign up for danger: When King Nebuchadnezzar commanded the wise men of Babylon tell him his nightmare and its meaning in order stay alive, Daniel endangered himself. Now he was in the cross hairs because the desperate king was expecting Daniel to bring an answer.  Christians must offer themselves for revival—to interpret the nightmare of this generation

Daniel 2:16 “So Daniel went in and asked the king to give him time, that he might tell the king the interpretation. 17 Then Daniel went to his house, and made the decision known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions, 18 that they might seek mercies from the God of heaven concerning this secret, so that Daniel and his companions might not perish with the rest of them wisemen of Babylon.”

Daniel hung his life on the belief that God would have mercy on him and his friends.  Now fast forward to you today.  You must not see revival as a nice thing or even a desired thing but the only thing.  Nothing will save America now but revival.  Your quest for awakening must be so irrevocable that you act as if it is already here.

  2. Bless God! The cry of my heart! I am constantly seeking God’s face with great expectation of what I believe is about to happen here!
    Thank you so much for this!

  3. I believe even now that revival is rumbling in the heavens to be cast upon the earth that we may receive, turn from our wicked ways and see our land healed. I believe many will be saved and great miracles will take place and Jesus will be lifted up that all men may be drawn unto him. Even so come quickly Lord Jesus.

  4. It is a word in a timely manner. The frustration is high, the burning in our hearts is consuming. Let us bow low and surrender all that we may serve our King with utter abandonment. It’s time to take back what the enemy stolen.

  5. Praise God; We need to remember to “Put on the WHOLE armor of God that we may stand against the wiles of the devil”. Preach it Mario

  6. With out God there is no good, basicly what we are seeing now, under the last o. God was basicly told we don’t want you in America, we must repent for ever letting himin office, and now we must pray and back the evil T.S. out from this nation, and all evil and perverted spirit’s, passive spirit’s, controling spirits, and return to the living God, We are the key do we want Revival to come, do we want God back do we want change for the better, do we want to see souls saved, are we ready to get off our lazy backsides, and fast and pray and vote as we should, to put the right people in office, THE ONES GOD SAY’S, not us we don’t know there heart, WE MUST PRAY, THEM=N PUT OUR PRAYERS IN ACTION, BY DOING WHAT IS REQUIRED, get this oh God is in control, if he want’s us to have revival we will, GOD CAN DO ANYTHING HE WANTS, BUT HE DON’T BACK LAZY, THE PEOPLE WHO HAD GREAT AWAKENINGS DID THERE JOB, THEY FAUGHT AGAINST T.S. ALL EVIL SPIRITS IN THERE REGION, WE NEED TO FIND OUT WHAT SPIRITS ARE STRONGEST IN THE AREA AND SEND WARRIOR ANGELS TO DRIVE THEM BACK, FAR OUT INTO THE SEA, IS WHAT THE LORD TOLD ME TO DO ABOUT THEM, AND DON’T SAY IT ONE’S OR TWICE GET LOUD,AND JUST START SAYING DRIVE THEM BACK, DRIVE THEM BACK DRIVE THEM BACK, I HAVE DONE THIS FOR OUR’S, AND PULL DOWN, PULL DOWN, PULL DOWN THE STRONG HOLDS IN THAT AREA, BUT YOU JUST CAME FROM A REVIVAL WHERE THE LORD TOLD ME THIS WAS THERE ANY DIFFERANCE, [ I AM JUST ASKING, I WANT TO MAKE SURE I AM PRAYING RIGHT] I PRAY AS HE LEADS, JUST SAYING SOMETHING ONCE OR TWICE WILL NOT INTIMIDATE THE ENEMY HE IS STUBBORN, AND HARD HEADED AND A BULLY, AND YOU HAVE TO GET ROUGH WITH HIM, IT’S TIME WE STOP WHISPERING AT THE ENEMY AND START SHOUTING AND ROARING LIKE A LION, But we have to as the other’s did who ushered in great awakenings, as warriors of the living God, and HIS WORD THROUGH OUR MOUTH, SPOKEN CHANGES EVERYTHING, PRAY SEND NOW, NOT IN THE FUTURESEND NOW AS WE CRY OUT TO HIM, and I know some will say I am bragging, let them say what they want, I want to pry to make if I am not making a difference I want to try something that is making a differance, I want to ne effective for the Kingdom of God, to make a change for the better here. Be Blessed Bro. Mario

    1. Roger I want to read what you write, but it’s hard to when you type in CAPS majority of the time, hard on the eyes.

  7. Yes Yes Yes! our most precious lord Jesus America needs RIVAL! It’s already here! Let it break out in the public places! In streets! Let your power flow in America! Show the world we our one nation under GOD! In Jesus holy name! Amen!

  8. A powerful word!! Lord help me to do my part in you’re great army of believers! I shared with Apostolos on prayer call out of Dearborn MI. last night. He’s a real prayer warrior, has witnessed to muslims. And we all prayed over this revival! But in the morning, throughout the day, at night I pray. I just have better vision of how to pray now. Thank you Mario.

  9. Saturday night during a home meeting I say Mario walking behind a plow going South towards LA. I heard the Lord say, ” Mario is opening up the wells of living water covered over by evil”. California had Azusa street, Aimee Semple McPherson, Oral Roberts, Billy Graham, Kathryn Kuhlman and many others saw the power of God. We are going to see the biggest outpouring of God’s power that the world has ever seen.

  10. Already praying and crying out to God for souls. The burden is enormous. Felt it especially strong today for some reason. The darkness is overwhelming in our nation. But Isaiah 9:2 says, “On those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.” Many are feeling an increased burden of prayer for revival. God, let it be so. God bless the work in California!

  11. HAB. 3:2 NIV LORD, I HAVE HEARD OF YOUR FAME, I STAND IN AWE OF YOUR DEEDS, O LORD, RENEW THEM IN OUR DAY, IN OUR TIME MAKE THEM KNOWN; IN WRATH REMEMBER MERCY.

    IN OTHER WORDS – LORD DO IT AGAIN !!!

  12. I agree with every word, Pastor Mario. A massive move of God is the only thing that can save this country. Pray for America, pray for President Trump to have the wisdom of God and for the Holy Spirit to touch and to fill him and for him to give God the Glory, pray for the churches to allow the Spirit to move and to smash legalism.
