Wanted: Misfits, rebels and true warriors. I am looking for those who aren’t waiting for permission to save a nation from destruction.

Today, I write about violence. Today, I write to the violent. There is no point in talking to those who are afraid of their own shadow, or those who can’t wait for a return to the same old harmless lukewarm religion as before, when America reopens. This blog is not for those who practice ‘cuddly-Christianity.’

Matthew 11:12, “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.”

The Left says, “Be a good little Christian, we got this.”  They warn pastors, “Just because the pandemic is winding down, that doesn’t mean we won’t stop telling you when you can meet and what you can preach.  They say, “Get used to less privacy, less rights, and less money.” They used that cursed phrase, “new normal.”

So are you going to bend or stand? If you answer, “Stand,” then read on.

I am on the hunt for misfits! I am looking for those rare hearts who defy the lie. Those who confess with conviction that every dream—every vision—every strategy that God gave us is unchanged by the virus.

What are you doing during this shutdown, warrior? My guess is, instead of downgrading your dream, you downloaded defiance.  You didn’t relax, you reloaded. You aren’t whimpering and whining, but forging and shining.  You aren’t mooing with the cattle, you are yearning for battle.

Remember: Even before all of this happened, you withdrew from the religious rec-hall, so that you could go after God. Never forget how sick and empty you felt during those church performances of flesh, flash, and foolishness.

2 timothy 4:4-5, “And they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”

Then there was that day when you read these words: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father” (John 14:12).

The hunger to see signs and wonders body-slammed you. You wanted the real. You wanted the true miracles of Jesus and not those sad, commercialized parlor tricks that were so popular before the shutdown. In fact, the virus didn’t shake our faith in miracles—it intensified our passion to see more! More power! More fire! More miracles!

Pacing like a lion in my prayer room, I announced to the powers of hell that I won’t back down. I know what the devil is doing. He is fanning hatred toward the Gospel. He is using the virus as a pretext for persecution. So, what does that mean? It means something to the warrior that it can’t mean to the make-believer. It means we won’t back down. We won’t stop. We won’t dilute our message or lower our voice.

2 Corinthians 4:2, “But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.”

It also means the soldier of revival is facing a two-headed monster. One head is leftist state officials. Man of God, they want to shut you up. Woman of God, they want to dash your hopes and dreams.

The other head is the Laodicean church of America. The tepid, compromised, confused and cowardly hordes that refuse to buck the system—even if the system is after our freedoms and values. They won’t help. They won’t stand. You are grasping at straws when you try to get them to take a stand.

No, my friend, you must be prepared for a gallant fight. And on your side, are only you, and God. But that is always a majority! 

Are you going to back down now? Are you going to allow God-hating devils to decide the size of your future? Did the devil close doors for you?  God will rip them open again with His own bare hands. This virus and the fearful policies that are growing out of it did not, and cannot, kill the promises of God.

But you have to stand! Even against the gates of Hell! Forget about what others are going to do when this is over. You, prepare for total war.

Are you that pastor who woke up to your compromise and failure during the shutdown?  Are you in agony, trying to figure out how to tell the people that you are now pursuing fire, revival, and miracles? Are you obsessing over how many will leave the church? Stand!

Yes, they will leave. But for every one of these detractors who leave, ten true disciples will rise up. Your obedience will bring in lost souls. Your preaching will be crowned with divine healing miracles.

Do you own a business?  Stand against the tide of fake news about the economy.  God will protect your company. You may be in politics. Forget about votes!  Declare truth no matter who it offends, and then watch as God grants unusual favor.

You and I have no time to waste on the timid cold souls in the bleachers. We have work to do—God’s work! So what if it looks impossible. So what if there seems to be a million of them and just two of us. Today is your victory cry. The moment is yours to command!

The greatest thrill of life and the greatest honor is following God into dark and impossible situations. Don’t let go of this, you may never have another opportunity to prove the might of Jehovah Sabaoth, the Lord of the Armies of Heaven!

1 Samuel 14: 6, “Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few.””

Finally, don’t you dare act like this is too hard for you. Don’t flinch, wondering why this has happened to you. This is what your Christianity is for. This is what your faith is for.

Don’t you dare feel inadequate or shocked! Believe it or not, you have been training for this all of your life. Long before this virus, God separated you for special training. Long before this shutdown, the Lord shaped the circumstances of your life, to give you the heart and the skills for saving a nation.

“Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil; for we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” (Ephesians 6:11-13)

The gates of hell cannot prevail against that which heaven has put in you! Stand!


  1. Amen, Mario. Saw you preach for the first time this evening – absolutely brilliant message, wonderful delivery. I only hope some of those weak-kneed pastors see it, and that the Holy Spirit convicts them right powerfully! They need to deliver the message of fire and revival, for the good of their flocks: and if some leave, so be it – they were never committed to the truth anyway. Hallelujah for God’s army! He will weed out the tares from the wheat, and that is HIS job. I believe it is the pastor’s job to set the stage for that by preaching the gospel of TRUTH.

  2. Thank you from a devoted layperson retired from 30 years in nursing. Arthritis has destroyed my knees and back, from all the years of following my blessed calling from God. I desperately long to be back out doing what I love, caring for those who are sick. But your words have inspired me to dig in and pray, stand in the gap like never before!! It’s my new mission and calling from the King, The Lion of Judah!
    Thank you for your words of enlightenment and encouragement to stand strong in the Spirit from the confines of my home.
    God Bless you Pastor Mario!

    1. Not take a stand after all this training? Shut up now when people are afraid to show their own mouths and noses? Gotta stand. Must speak. Jesus is leading, must follow, not back down now. Thank you for the rallying cry to the troops. God bless you, as Donald Trump would say, “Bigly!”

  3. Thank you for standing for the truth. Here in Ind. we have been open for a number of months. Our pastors says no more shut downs, he is preaching the word with greater boldness. We have to stand up against this wickedness, that wants to control us, and stand for the truth.

  4. GOD is my strength and no weapon formed against me shall prosper in the name of my great and winner Jesus Christ.

  5. Jesus, Lion of Judah, break forth and pour out Your Revival Fire upon California, this Nation and the World. Last night was the birthing of Revival — Mario, David Wilkerson is cheering along side of Jesus!

  6. Fasting and praying a few months ago, God took me from “well, the Bible says these things would happen in the last days” to “NO you don’t, devil!!!” The fight is on!

  7. I am with you. I have the spirit of John the Baptist speaking out truth and questioning those around me. I have been told to be careful what I say my family could he black balled.
    God bless you I have been praying for our ministers all around America to return to their First Love.

  8. this message is exactly what is in my heart and I have felt it, spoken it to a pastor who backed away from the truth and went on his mundane mamby pamby way. I have been so adamant about speaking the truth of the word that people shun me, I don’t mind, they needed to hear it. But now I’m almost 69, live in a small rural town can’t travel or I’d be right there with you in this. But I can pray for you and all the others bold enough to stand . God Bless you for preaching truth and I pray you storm the gates of hell and with God all this will be what He wants for His church. I pray for the cowardly christians to wake up and stand with you. Love your sister in Christ, Janet Reeves

  9. I say yes to this call. Also in Isaiah 59:17 it mentions the armor and “wrapped Himself with zeal as a mantle.” God will strengthen our resolve.

  10. I preached Sunday morning at a church that has been through a great trial and disaster in recent months. This church had a history of great exploits for the Kingdom for decades. Many will be in heaven from around the world because of their missions ministry. The Holy Spirit led me to preach on the 4 “P” ‘s that Satan wants to silence in true Pentecostal churches. He wants to stop Pentecostal Preaching, Pentecostal Praise, Pentecostal Prayer, and Pentecostal Power. And a hindering demon spirit stronghold that had found a place in the church through their pain, doubts, and self condemnation over their recent issues was revealed, disarmed, and cast out of their midst. How we need the Holy Spirit today! Way too many Sauls, secular men from whom the Spirit is departed, are trying to run the Church of the Living God. And not near enough Spirit filled Davids, whose faith is absolutely in God alone and not in themselves, and who know how to be led by the Holy Spirit to victory over their enemies. Let God arise, His enemies be scattered!

    1. Pentecostal Purging. He will be like a blazing fire that purifies silver, and like strong soap that bleaches clothes! Malachi 3:2

  13. You are right on target man of GOD! I will not back down to the attacks of the enemy but I will call on the forces of heaven to intervene on my behalf and for my off spring. We are on the winning side and the forces of hell can not prevail against it! They have attacked but they have not caused injury or fear! I stand firm on the WORD and in the SPIRIT! Thou they slay me I will not bow, I will not bend and I will not burn!

  14. Big amen good word: I wrote a little on Twitter they have preached the favor and blessings, and the part that makes them happy, but they didn’t preach how the Apostle’s were beaten, stoned, put in prison, and put to death, because they stood for God and what was right, they were persecuted, the bad part is most of the church today don’t do anything to upset satan, he dosen’t care if they preach prosperity and blessings, or a real good feel good message, but you start preaching the full gospel teach them to build on Jesus Christ the solid rock foundation, and build up your house on the Apostles teaching, teach them how to fight and stand for God and whats right, and you might just get a soning party like Stephen got, when you make warrior’s out of them and not wimps, and soldiers out of them and not passivist, most in America do not preach or teach anything to upset satan, thats why we seem so protected here, while others in other countries are getting beheaded, and put in prison, we have been neutered down, for the most part, and we need fired back up, but some will not doing it, they still scream why don’t you shut up, so and so of old said just preach Jesus and nothing else, well we have the mews and social media feeding all the people a bunch of communist lie’s, and if we don’t tell them the truth they will never hear it, and will fall for these lie’s being pushed and vote for a devil, and I will not be quite and allow that to happen, because our nation is at stake, but I don’t believe the one’s in the church will wake up now, I think they have chosen so it just to try and wake some other’s up, when you choose to back Biden you have chose the antichrist spirit, and 2700 Evangelicals have done that, deception at its greatest level, they believed a lie and were damned, condoning what God condemns. Lord help us, and the only way we will win this one is by the grace of God and the one’s who stood and spoke out and fought, in spiritual warfare and social media, while they run us down and removed our post, time we became like the Apostle’s who suffered for God and what they stood for, under the power and might of the Holy Spirit. be blessed sir

  15. I was able to find the link to your live stream last night, even though I am not on facebook. I was thrilled and sent it to my list and posted it on Xapit. I missed the first of it, but it was a thrilling service! I feel blessed to be able to support your ministry with prayer and donations. Go forward, Godly man!

  16. How do the people who are responsible for the destruction of our economy, the deterioration of mental and emotional health, for the suicides of young people who lost their hope for the future, for families who did not get to visit their senior members or have funerals, for couples/families who could not hold weddings, for all the lost businesses that will never recover, lost jobs, hungry children, closed schools, Christians/pastors arrested for holding church.. .. etc, etc,….HOW do these people stand to look at themselves in the mirror and say, “Oops..oh well…” and continue on like nothing has happened? Who do we hold accountable for all the lies and destruction that has been done to America? https://amazinghealthadvances.net/lockdowns-are-a-big-mistake-6888

  17. You did it again Mario! You “ hit it dead on”! Wow what a message, what encouragement, what powerful words to move us “fighters” forward into the battle ! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Sending this to several “warrior” friends! God bless you, keep your powerful anointed blogs coming!


  19. Wow, Just wow!!! Exactly what I needed to hear. God has lead me to this, Now I truly know that what I am doing was definitely from Him. I will stay strong in his word and will put on the full armor. With God all things are possible. He is our strength our hope our joy. Thank you

  20. Hi brother Mario,
    Here are some scriptures concerning God’s Mighty army that He is raising up.
    (Obadiah 1:21) = “The saviors [deliverers] will ascend Mount Zion to
    judge the mountain of Esau, and the kingdom will be the LORD’s.”
    (Nehemiah 9:27) = “Thou didst give them deliverers who ‘delivered’ them from the hand of their oppressors.”
    (Judges 3:9) “And when the sons of Israel cried to the Lord, the Lord raised up a deliverer for the sons of Israel to deliver them, Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb’s younger brother.”
    Our church & I are praying & agreeing that the Lord will give and pour out the Spirit of awakening on the churches. We are out there every week seeing people on the streets get healed, delivered from satans grips, saved & filled with the Holy Spirit.
    We are praying for the Church world out there to wake up and “go to war” in Jesus’ name!
    Bless you & yours brother Mario!

  21. I’m out here in Massachusetts Mario. Tough leftist territory, but I want you to know there are some of us rebels for Christ out here too. I so appreciate your boldness to speak the truth. God bless you abundantly with every blessing in heaven! Diana

  22. Yes yes yes

  23. How can I thank you? I’m here in my home praying in tongues alone. I get these messages from God that blow me away. Listening to you, I am not alone. We know those who trust in the Holy One. We beat ourselves against the gates of heaven begging for mercy. God have mercy on this nation. Do Your Good work here Father!

  24. I am a misfit. I will take a step of faith. I’m tired of the churches hiding or continuing with compliance in California. Fear has captured the body. God is in control but he wants His church to stand up for themselves and make a difference. The problems we are having today is because we are under judgement and the churches are preaching rapture instead of repentance. We the church cannot function in our communities unless we are face down before Jesus and get into the bread and quit sucking milk. The Christians today, attending church on Sunday and Wednesday nights is enough. The rest of the week they blend in. Are we not to be the light in the darkness? Yes we need to reach out to the community but first we must save those who say I did this for you and I worked in this way for the church and yet He says I know you not. That is what I’m doing for me now. I was one who thought going to church was going to keep me on track. Faith without works is nothing. I say works without faith He will say he doesn’t know you. Oh church wake up. The church community is so lukewarm I pray Rauch put a fire back into your body. Church read the word and get meat. Quit judging and start loving the unloveable and take off the mask and let people see everything good or bad. If man doesn’t see it God can. So who are you fooling? Prayer warrior for now and learning what He wants for me. I ask for forgiveness and His mercies. Amen.

  25. Mario,

    Thank you so much for holding the line and raising up the blood stained banner over this nation! Many of us odd balls that have been sidelined, ignored, and ridiculed for our “radical lifestyles” of prayer, intimacy with God and righteousness; are now going to be vindicated from heaven as the Lord pours out His Spirit on the ones He has been preparing in the hidden places of the earth, for this hour in history.

    Your video’s with Robby, this blog and the other interviews you have been doing with others has been a real encouragement to many people, myself included. So much confirmation of what we are feeling and seeing from the Lord, you are declaring from this place of influence that the Lord has given you. Please take a moment and look at some of the things I have been hearing since this scourge hit our land. https://haybark.wordpress.com/

  26. I choose to stand and I am with you. And more importantly, I know that we are standing in the might of God together for oir narion and the rest of the world. Excited to see His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the goodness that it will bring as a result! We were born for such a time as this.
