A NEW KIND OF CHRISTIAN LEADER

Remember when I told you this…a new kind of Christian leader will soon appear on the American stage. They will not fit any present mold. They will be the catalysts. They will usher in the next great awakening. They will appear because conditions will demand their appearance. Consider how the coronavirus can be the pretext to change the very way churches and ministries operate. Even to the point of banning public gatherings. In the next few years, you will likely see social media virtually remove all preaching. Not only that, but there will be a concerted effort to marginalize the church in ways you never imagined. Does that mean that Bible-based Christianity is over in America? Absolutely not!

You watch: God will come out of nowhere to meet this threat. A big difference you will see in the coming leaders is where they serve. A few of them will be in pulpits. More of them will be in politics, business, science, law, entertainment, music, or a thousand other fields of endeavor.  They will not introduce subjects—they will introduce eras.    No one will be able to buy them off or get them to change the subject. They will operate on a disquieting plane of holiness and consecration. I believe A. W. Tozer was describing them when he said, “They serve God and mankind from motives too high to be understood by the rank and file of religious retainers who today shuttle in and out of the sanctuary.”

Today they suffer. Their agony is what happens when worlds collide. They see their destiny. It’s big and dangerous. A part of them glories in the potential to know God intimately and represent Him bravely. They see themselves rebuking kings, tyrants, and warmongers. They see themselves commanding the transfer of the wealth of the wicked into the control of the righteous. (Is. 60:5)  

God is warring to save America. You must find your assignment in that war. But how can we know our assignment? The secret to finding your assignment is your heart. God speaks to the heart and then the heart must control the mind. Today, many spirit-filled believers are unwittingly involved in New Age practices. They relate to God as if He were some kind of ‘force’ rather than a Person. They think that audacity and confidence will unlock gifts, authority, and direction. They speak of “activating gifts” as if there was a formula to supernatural manifestations. My friend, it comes through brokenness, not arrogance. The ‘force’ is a farce. The gifts and anointing of the Holy Spirit always come through relationship. Sorry, but Christianity has always been, and always will be, family owned and operated. So then how can we know our assignment?

Your assignment in the Army of God is your individual expression and extension of Christ’s destruction of the works of the devil. You are a destroyer of the works of the devil. God will give you a way to do it that is unique to you. Until that gets through to you—until you admit and agree to those terms—God will remain silent about your assignment. Because the situation today in America is an impossible one, only one kind of person will make a difference now. They must be armed with divine certainty. They must own an unshakable, bone-deep conviction that they have been chosen for this task. Without this, we have zero hope of removing the bloody talons of Satan from the throat of our nation. Without it, we are doomed to another embarrassing misfire, pawned off as revival.

Next, you must face the fact that very few believers are supposed to be teachers, preachers, or pastors (see James 3:1). For too long, we have listened to the voice of God through a filter. In the past, whenever God has moved someone to serve Him, we have assumed it meant ‘ministry.’ This assumption of ministry has sent many Christians to Bible College who didn’t belong there. Worse yet, it has filled pulpits with people who should have never been ordained. This reminds me of why President Woodrow Wilson once said, “One of the proofs of the divinity of the Gospel is the preaching it has survived.”

This filtered view of service is one big reason the church lost influence in our nation. God tried to send people into education, law, medicine, business, art, media, and yes, even politics−but instead, we herded them into “Christian service.” You see it in the Bible. You see it in the stories of heroes of faith throughout history who altered the course of their generation. At the dawn of their mission, God infused them with incontestable certainty. This certainty plays a critical role in their survival.

Think of it like the escape velocity of a rocket. Escape velocity is one of the biggest challenges of space travel. In order for a rocket to break free of the Earth’s gravitational force it must reach a speed of seven miles per second. That’s 25,000 miles per hour! Evil convulses at the approach of a new vessel of God. Hell instantly puts chosen ones on a hit list. The child of God must be blasted by divine certainty into a trajectory that will escape the pull of devils, the seduction of fame, withering criticism, and the dark night of the soul that comes to all who are called of God. From his death bed, John Wesley wrote his last letter to William Wilberforce to encourage him as he fought in Parliament to abolish slavery in England. In this letter, Wesley confirms the urgency of divine certainty: “Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be worn out by the opposition of men and devils. But if God be for you, who can be against you?  Are all of them together stronger than God? O be not weary of well doing!

Go on, in the name of God and in the power of his might…” Understand this child of God! The same Spirit that is awakening a passion and direction in you is doing the same thing to millions more. Soon an army will emerge that will invade every area of our culture. Today it is sporadic fire, here and there, but soon the prophetic core of God will obey and embrace their assignment. They will come together in a chorus of victory that will be unlike anything we have ever seen. Never forget, Christianity will survive without America−but America will not survive without Christianity.

    1. I sat with solid Christian friends Wednesday evening for dinner. This is almost exactly what we talked about. We consider Wednesday night as our “ church” because we cannot stomach much of the Local churches. We are not perfect but we do seek where we belong on a daily basis and our desire is to be used by Him in each days walk.
      Thank you Mario for your words of direction and encouragement.

  2. Great Mario! That puts steel into my soul. You speak of America, but it’s true for every nation, definitely here in UK. God had been revealing my assignment and the certainty of it grips me SO tightly some days I can hardly breathe. I “hear the sound of rustling in the tops of the trees”, God’s strategy is almost ready for release. Let His army arise!

  3. Hi Mario

    Merry Christmas to all in the US from
    Brisbane Australia

    I loved this post today Mario as it is something God has been awakening in me much of this year, it has been like a missing piece revelation to me.

    I have been challenged to step into the assignment that God put me on earth for and feel the urgency of the hour now is perfectly matched to me stepping into this assignment. 2021 is the time for me to listen to the Holy Spirit and be tunnel vision focused on the assignment he has designated. Aside from that, regular intimacy with the Lord is my main overarching priority.

    I’m excited to see the clear call of assignment on millions more at this hour.

    Andy

  4. My Bible calls David’s men “Warrior Heroes.” My prayer this morning: L-rd, I call for your Warrior Heroes in all 50 states, to rise up and take their place in the earth. Men and women who can’t be bought, or bribed, who hunger for righteous and holiness, and to serve you Most High in spirit and truth. In the name of Jesus/Yeshua whom I serve in prayer.

  5. Big amen sir, There is a driving that is unexplainable, its like sitting on a thorn, you can’t just sit still while it sticks you, it drive’s you forward pushes you into what is evil and unGodly to stop it, its a call that will not allow you to sit still, evil is supposed to upset us but sadly most today are more upset about a bad word, than a corrupt congress trying to take this Nation down, the preachers tell us to be calm, be nice quite down, thats the problem we been nice to what we should have cast out, and not stood for God and whats right, we are to change the world, not conform to the evil, they tell us get in our little corner, or box, and don’t ruffle any feathers, or offend, if you do not ruffle any feathers or offend any people your not preaching the word, and you sure are not changing the world, we have many word changers today, but very few world changer’s, which is why we have what we have right now, an Army that does not fight isn’t an army but a glorified cub scout troop, and we are in a war and need the mighty army of God, to many are affraid they will hurt some ones feelings, if these devil dogs take over, they are going to hurt more than our feelings, they will be hunting us down and killing us, we don’t understand today what it takes to win a war, and keep our freedoms our fore fathers did, Arlington Cemetery is full of them, but they were willing to die to keep this nation free, even Jesus didn’t just die to save us but to free us from the bondage of satan, and we will not fight and do the same, there is no freedom out side of Christ, and if this evil takes over the Church will have to go under ground and many Nation depend on the Church for survival, so many have begged for help these holidays, from what these evil dogs have done to this nation and the world, I helped all I could but theres just so many, and if they take over America it will destroy the whole world, even our preaching affect them, sadly they been swamped with compromised aching to, and we need Holy Spirit Fire filled preacher’s in the Pulpit to preach with Fire and fill the people with the Holy Spirit again, because he has been offended greatly in this Nation and the Church by allowing evil and sin, and we must ask for forgiveness and get him back in Control of the Church and our lives, we are trying to do a supernatural work in the natural, and men are in control, they want and demand you submit to them, while submitting to God is what they will not do, SELF HAS EXALTED IN THE PULPIT AND THE CHURCH AND THE WORLD ALONG WITH POWER OF MAN, NOT GODS, AND WE BETTER BE GETTING THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT BACK IN THE CHURCH AND STAND FOR GOD AND WHATS RIGHT BEFORE WE LOSE THE CHURCH AND THIS NATION, Get involved in all aspects of life Jesus called lawyers, Doctors, politicians, tax collectors, fisherman showing it takes people in every walk of life to change the world, people who are willing to die for the truth of the Gospel and nation if need be, Jesus died, Stephen died Act 7, the Apostles died, men like William Tyndal burned at the stake, all to preach and get the word in english to every one where they could read, and we don’t want to get unfollowed by any one or talked about, what abut they loved not there lives unto death, they tell us don’t show any emotion, don’t get upset, our emotions are what move’s us to help people, righteous anger is what cause’s us to stop evil, and they preaxh today to not let these emotions show, well Jesus did, he wept, he made awhip and whipped out the money changers, the wrong going on, we have let them twist the word and make Jesus into a sixties hippie peace love man, and the sleep with every thing and harbor hate so bad some send evil spirits to try and kill at night, and they took the fight out of the Church along with the power and presence of the Holy Spirit, we need a rebirth of the Holy Spirit back in the church, because we have offended greatly and put men in his place, coaches and other who analyze and profile, so we can appear to know whats going on in a persons life by natural means, and Christ work is a Supernatural work of the Holy Spirit, and we better get him back where he belongs, or all we have is a form of Godliness denying the power there of, from such turn away, for the most part the Church has been made into a social club, and its time, THE TRUE CALLED OF GOD STOOD UP AND PUT THE HOLY SPIRIT BACK WHERE HE BELONGS WE NEED HIM REBIRTHED BACK IN THE CHURCH, THE CHURCH SAYS THERE ALL RIGHT EVEN THOUGH GOD TOOK ME TO HEAVEN AND GAVE 2 COR. 12 :20-21 AND SAID THERE NOT READY, THEY SAY ITS ME WHO IS NOT READY, WHILE satan TAKES THE CHURCH PRISONER, STILL ON THE CRUISE SHIP MOST OF THEM JUST RELAXING WHILE THE BOAT SINKS, WHEN WE SHOULD BE MANNING OUR BATTLE STATIONS, BECAUSE THEY ARE BLIND GUIDES, MAKING PEOPLE TWO FOLD MORE THE CHILD OF HELL THAN THEM, MAT 23:15, TO MANY MAMA CALLED AND DADDY SENT, AND ITS GOING TO TAKE THE GOD CALLED AND HOLY SPIRIT AND FIRE FILLED TO SAVE THIS NATION AND THE CHURCH, I GAVE A WORD BEFORE THIS STARTED IF THE MEGA CHURCHES DIDN’T REPENT AND TURN TO GOD THEY WERE GOING TO BE DESTROYED, I THINK IF WE LOOK AROUND THATS HAPPENING, TIME TO AWAKEN AND LET THOSE GODLY EMOTIONS AND RIGHTEOUS ANGER ARISE IN THE BODY AND CHANGE THE WORLD, BE WORLD CHANGERS, NOT WORD CHANGERS, AND GET TOUGH LIKE REAL MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD SHOULD BE, FOR THEY ARE NOT WIMPS BUT MIGHTY WARRIORS AND THEY DO NOT BACK DOWN TO DEVILS, DEVILS BOW AND FLEE AT THE NAME OF JESUS WITH MEN AND WOMEN OF POWER AND ANOINTING. GOOD WORD SIR. BE BLESSED

      1. Clark, YES, Roger is giving the devil a headache we need armies of those. Was thinking years ago read a Prophetic Bulletin where the Angel(s) standing over Church Building and shaking it to Rubble as it was the stronghold over the City as so many dead men in the pulpit serving up their dead gospel, intimidation, manipulation and control all equals witchcraft. “Diabolical Narcissism” is in our Homes and Churches. Thinking of all the “sent ones” that weren’t heeded and now here we are as a Nation. Encourage everyone to read their Bibles from cover to cover. NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER SURRENDER; NEVER SAY DIE (as we are going to live forever), FIGHT LIKE YOUR LIFE and the Nation/World depends on it. Fast, PRAY, REPENT, Worship, Pray/Speak the Word and in heavenly language.
        Total Spiritual Holy Awakening by Almighty God the Father and what it will take!
        Keep praying your face off. Matthew 11:12; Ephesians 6:13.

      2. amen sir and our lives do depend on it, these people are evil and proved they do not care who they kill, or mutilate or castrate as they do their teens with Transgender, they lock the elderly in nursing homes to die alone, and starve the people of this nation while they give billions to other countries, now Gates is trying to cut us off from the suns rays, these are seeds of satan the wheat and the tares an enemy has done this goes back to Gen 6, spirits and off spring of a once heavenly beings, and we have to make mighty warriors and get the Fire of the Holy Ghost back in the church with the power and presence, we need God called men and women, Holy Spirit filled, full of the fire for that is what defeats devils, we have petted them way to long, time to put them in their place, in the name of Jesus Christ, they must bow, we must quit being afraid of hurting their feelings, for they will hurt far more than our feelings, they will kill as many of us as possible, for they hate the church and have infiltrated so much of it, so many leaders now are of baal and fallen angels and the power of the Holy Spirit is the only answer. be blessed sir

  6. This is boot camp time for the church to prepare to walk in a glory unknown to previous generations. It is imperative that believers take the time to read, study and act on the Word of God. That is a primary step. Total repentance and walking with the Holy Spirit is involved. President Trump will serve a second term and he will need our help. Only believers with the glory of the Word and the Holy Spirit will be able to minister deliverance and restoration to the unsaved. Here is a Dec 23, 2020 message from Pastor Kent Christmas. He describes what is needed to face the challenges of today. What he said is absolute truth and really nothing else needs to be said. Here is the link (18 minutes) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TdA-5PsrLE
    Please take the time to encourage President Trump. He is surrounded by betrayers even in the White House. His chief of Staff is pressuring him to concede. The China connection has infiltrated EVERY ASPECT AND LEVEL OF THE AMERICAN POLITICAL SYSTEM. In China’s mind, they have accomplised a successful coup. I believe God wants to uncover all the subversive activity. Who can the President trust?

  7. Good observation: “Today, many spirit-filled believers are unwittingly involved in New Age practices. They relate to God as if He were some kind of ‘force’ rather than a Person.”

    I need to speak to Him in vocalized words, not merely thoughts, to make sure I interact with Him as a Person.

  8. I believe if I had not gone to Rhema Bible College, I would have not know how to interpret scripture since most pastors are not teaching scripture. God says to study to show yourself approved unto God. Most people who think they are Christian do not do this.

  9. this stabs at the very heart of where Gob currently has me. New horizons of ministry and after 32 years of pulpit ministry God is calling for the unconventional directions.

  10. Yes, amen Mario

    We are here as part of the Army of God, we will never give in to the world’s system.
    Don’t let the world system dictate your life!
    Our church has never closed in rural Mississippi outside Tupelo…but also offer streaming to those who are
    old and prone to disease… the survival rate from Covid is like 99.7%. I think these churches that only do social media and people who are afraid to go out need not fear unless they have a health problem, but for others, there is no excuse, find an open spirit-filled Church and go.
    Social media is not the same as in-person worship, we don’t need to fear the Covid farce (Scamdemic) Can’t act like wimps. We need to gather together in corporate worship if possible. God is our source.

  11. Right-On! Louder, louder, louder until the walls start to crack and crumble. The Voice of God WILL not be stopped. Nothing can stop what God is doing even if we don’t understand why or how He is doing it. His Word spoken in scripture, through the Prophets, and to our spirits WILL be done. Every single syllable.

    Blessings, be empowered to prosper in your assignment. Know that all things work better when we are in alignment with our assignment.

  12. I asked the Lord for confirmation of my assignment as I got up this morning and then I read this.
    Thanks Mario for the good word.

  13. THANK YOU! I really need that! By the way, funny but your paragraph in yellow font on black starting with “Evil convulses” brought to my mind the term chiastic structure.

    1. Hi bonnie621 your comment gladdens my heart! I too rejoice to be alive and be apart of this moment! In Sept 2014 I was attacked by septicemia in my womb, almost killed me except Jesus intervened and granted me my life back. Turned me around from backsliding on the spot! This election “thing” is like a cancer that we didn’t realise was so huge. But God is greater. Amen

  14. Mario, none of us will survive without Christianity. No not one. I am praying daily for my destiny to be clear! I began work as a teacher for 12 years. A retailer and store owner fir 40 years and now retired and at the age of 70 I just want to do what He wants me to do! Oh if only I can see clearly what that is! I know He is preparing me for something. Whether it be big or small I want to make the right choice……

  15. Jesus instructions to us

    Matthew 28:19-20 NASB
    [19] Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, [20] teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

    We have to always keep in mind that God has given us the commission to preach the good news about His kingdom and to teach his commandments.

    I was blessed to be able to be on a mission trip almost two years ago and the person coordinating the street evangelism said something that really hit home and I will share it with you now. He stated a couple of facts, one we are to go out and make disciples, two we are to teach them to observe all that I commanded you. This becomes the great commission. As the body of Christ in whole, we don’t do this and two even if are doing this and telling others about the love of God….we and or our woke pastors are not teaching truth as it relates to God’s Word. Therefore these new potential believers have no solid ground to stand on and that describes a lot of our churches today. Pastors are teaching tradition of men and myths that Jesus and his apostles have warned us about over and over again in the scriptures.

    There are many reasons why we have become more like the world (compromised) instead of the world becoming more like the true church. We have our proprieties way out of line with the scriptures.
    We don’t tell others about repenting and turning back to God because:

    1. Fear….we don’t know the gospel ourselves well enough to share it. Paul tells us 2 Timothy 2:24-25 The Lord’s bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged, [25] with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth. We fear what we don’t know and if we are not equipped and know His Word, then we hold back even knowing what we should be doing as Jesus instructed.
    2. Compromise in our own life will keep one from sharing the love of God. How can we share the gospel at work with the girl in the break room if we have been flirtatious with her and she knows you are a married man and supposedly a Christian. In addition if the doctrine of scripture is watered down and not the truth, we will not be teaching the commandments of our Lord Jesus. This is just an illustration of one kind of compromise. If we compromise with the world and it’s lawless ways, we can’t represent Christ. You cannot be at the table of the Lord and that of demons.
    3. Disunity in the body of Christ will keep us from proclaiming the good news about the Kingdom of God. We need to be guided by the Holy Spirit just like in Pentecost, the early church was doing all things in unity, selling their belongings and giving of themselves to their fellow brothers and sisters. Today we are so myopic and we think only about ourselves, how can God bless my desires today. We must pray for the Holy Spirit to lead us to those in our paths whose hearts are ready for God to grant them repentance that leads them to truth.
    We must repent and ask God to help us become soldiers for Christ and quit this wanting to be a friend of the world. God’s plan has not changed, He wants to use us to carry out his purpose.

    1. Yeah bdk11
      The joy of sharing the GOOD NEWS to the lost is such an intense joy for both, the lost one & the former lost one. Humility never forgets our own deliverance. I never tell the doomed & damned that they are lost forever; they usually tell me of their hopelessness.
      You better believe I freely give them what I freely received of our Savior.
      When they receive the Lord into their hearts, they acknowledge their sin, their need for the Savior, which is all that’s needed, “the sinner’s prayer”.
      Usually, when asked if they desire help to LIVE the life Christ has for them, they eagerly ask for The Infilling of the Holy Spirit, for power & direction. On the spot.
      I think many forget to introduce the new convert to the resurrection power of God’s Holy Spirit, Who raised Jesus from the grave! Discipleship will begin.
      We soldier on!
      Blessings to you-

  16. I believe these are the 7 shepherds and the 8 leaders of men in Micah 5. See Bride’s Heart Ministry on Youtube and the 7 shepherds and 8 Leaders series to find out what these leaders will be like.

    1. If one looks around you will notice this call to come together, isn’t from man it’s from God. We’re hearing the same word in the high ways and byways. This is the Lord Jesus Christ calling His body to come together. functioning as one as He is the head. As Mario has been saying all along find your place (anointing) in His body. By humbling yourself before Him, you will hear and feel the gifts He has given you raise up and manifest to all in your sphere of influence.

  18. Thank you Mario for your ministry of God and to share the truth of faith, justice and purity of heart to Christians that have to become warriors for God, fully armoured for battle against the wickedness and the snares of the devil.

    It is painfully obvious that at every level, greed and corruption, big money payoffs have turned people into soldiers for satan. Abortionists and the abortion industry is the work of satan.
    Socialism/communism wants to rid our society of faith, family and church. The masses of people that have abandoned their faith to lies, materialism, and every vice of instantaneous pleasure and gratification. Unless they repent and turn away from their sins, they will perish in the fires of hell.

    I am a warrior for Jesus Christ. I am a warrior for democracy, fairness, justice and truth. I am an enemy of satan, and with God on my side, we will crush the head of the serpent.

  19. wow! so true! “Christianity will survive without America but America will not survive without Christianity” the answer is Jesus! the solution is already revealed in Christ and Christ in us!

  20. How I love this message…..it speaks to me as deep calls out to deep….In the 1970’s, I was a young woman divorced with a 3 year old child….I was raised in the Church growing up and I loved it—although it had its “flaws” way back then…I had taught Sunday School and Vacation Bible School for years, even though my husband would not attend church with our daughter and me…..then my heart was broken into tiny pieces by a terrible divorce that left me almost just a shell of a young woman……beautiful and broken.

    I write this today, because I am sure many young divorced women stepped out in the world of divorce, and found that many churches wanted no part of a divorced woman…..the women in the church all thought they were after their husbands—SO NOT TRUE! We just wanted help from the LORD and we thought the church was where we could get it……But we found only MORE HURT AND BROKENNESS….

    These experiences that many of us endured caused many of us to turn and walk away for a season or seasons…..MANY NEVER CAME BACK—–But I had a Godly praying mother holding me up so I would not crash and burn completely…..I ALMOST DID—-BUT HER PRAYERS PROTECTED ME.

    Those of us who survived, have our stories—and we finally RAN TO JESUS OUT OF SHEER DESPERATION AND SURVIVAL…..What we found was a Loving Savior who did not turn and walk away—-HE directed our paths as we cried out to HIM, and WE BECAME STRONG WOMEN OF GOD…..

    My story is one of millions, but I came to know the LORD in a most Special Way and I have never turned back……When I said: “LORD, I will Never turn and walk away from YOU again—no matter what happens…..IT CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER.

    I have said all of this is say: Women like us UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING—WE ARE NOT JUDGMENTAL BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN THERE….However GOD chooses to use us….we are more than willing, because we had no one way back in the 1960’s, 1970’s and forward who cared whether we made it or not……

    Marsha Carol Watson Gandy

    1. Amen, Marsha. My story was similar to yours. There simply was no place in the church for a woman attending without her husband, whether divorced, widowed, or simply married to an unsaved man. But, I knew God sent me there, and I was there for Him, not for anyone else. The Enemy tried to get me to be offended time and time again. I ignored him and continued going. God Bless.

  21. Thank you for the reminder. This is right on exactly what God has shown me since I was a small child. The determination mentioned will shake the church.
    Again thank you for encouraging me to stay focused on what God has put me here for.

  22. We need more of our people, young and old, to become college professors, journalists, Hollywood producers. We are going to see half of our workforce retire over the next five years (by 2025). There is no one in the pipeline to replace them.

    As for journalism, we can create our own news agencies. it does not take a newspaper press or a TV station. Just a blog of local news and events. Most things are never reported. A group could do this. I send out a weekly newsletter for one of my hobbies that reaches 200 individuals.

    We need people in entertainment. Science. What is your goals once you retire?

  23. Amen and I believe this GOD is calling warriors and everyone just does not get it but then everyone does not have discernment and trued to rely on prophets without praying to the Father that their word is from Him! Thank You for your stand, you will receive a great reward at that day! I stand with you and for the Father and declare His sovereignty!
