The Word of The Lord for this Hour

By Mario Murillo

Facebook oozes with voices claiming to be prophets or mouthpieces for God.   The internet teems with self-appointed prophets who scream to be heard, bombarding us with “prophetic words.”  Almost all these prophecies shout one of two headlines: AMERICA IS PAST HOPE AND WILL BE DESTROYED.  AMERICA IS FAVORED AND WILL NEVER BE DESTROYED.

So, what is the word of the Lord for this hour?  Now hear the word of the Lord!

To autonomously pronounce judgement is to play God.  Doomsdayers are calling off the attack against evil when God has not.  They are sounding a false retreat.  They are making evangelism futile.  They are helping put souls in hell by discouraging soul-winners.

Don’t lie to yourself.  Don’t make up prophecies of judgement just because you are mad at the church.  Face it!  Your righteous indignation may be nothing more than a personal grudge that your ministry was rejected by the church.

However, the great danger is not an abundance of prophets of doom.  It is the false prophets of grace and entitlement who are most dangerous.

In a wonderful book entitled The American Miracle written by Michael Medved, we see astounding and undeniable examples of God stepping in when America seemed beyond hope.  However, these examples are not proof that judgement won’t come.  To assume this is sheer madness.

I want to use George Washington as an example of something that desperately needs to be said to the American church.  Washington died because of medical malpractice.  Back then doctors believed in bleeding sick patients.  Washington was already weak from his sickness—by taking blood out, the doctors made him weaker and finally killed him.  It was the worst thing they could have done.

Listen church!  Cheap grace is bleeding an already weakened church.   It helps set us up for national destruction.   For Satan, this the perfect theology.   Instead of a life-giving conviction and a robust will to fight—this perversion induces drowsiness and apathy.

Why do you think so any of our pastors are closet alcoholics and addicted to porn?  And what can you expect a poisoned vessel to preach on Sunday morning?

Past miracles don’t guarantee future mercy.  They should awaken urgency, overpowering gratitude, humility, and profound soul searching.  Throwing ourselves off the cliff of morality to prove the power of Grace tempts God and provokes wrath.

God is trying to show us the times and what to do: 1 Chronicles 12: 32 “of the sons of Issachar who understood the times, to know what Israel ought to do.” The entire chapter lists the military talent of each tribe of Israel.  This gift was Issachar’s weapon

Next, “prophets” who say America will be destroyed or who say America cannot be destroyed are dead wrong.  We are neither pardoned nor condemned.  Our fate has not yet been decided.

We are living in a moment of mercy: HOW SOON WE FORGET!  We were spared the horror of Hillary—the finishing touch of Obama’s death spiral—a permanently enslaving national debt—A Supreme Court chaining us to anti-God laws, freedom-killing environmentalism—open borders bringing perpetual Democratic control, crime and terrorism.

Trump’s election was a miracle meant to ignite the church.  His time is Washington will be short, ineffective and we will end up worse off than ever if the church fails to obey God.

Trump has had missteps as president.  This does not mean he was not the right choice.  We dare abandon him so soon!  He needs our prayers.  He needs our support.

Here are the precise verses for this hour:  Ezra 9:  8 “And now for a little while grace has been shown from the Lord our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a peg in His holy place, that our God may enlighten our eyes and give us a measure of revival in our bondage. 9 For we were slaves. Yet our God did not forsake us in our bondage; but He extended mercy to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to revive us, to repair the house of our God, to rebuild its ruins, and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem.”

If, after all the mercy God has demonstrated—in a miraculous election—we fail to repent, rise and take our rightful place in America’s future…we can be destroyed.  Listen again to Ezra:

Ezra 9:13 “And after all that has come upon us for our evil deeds and for our great guilt, since You our God have punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and have given us such deliverance as this, 14 should we again break Your commandments, and join in marriage with the people committing these abominations? Would You not be angry with us until You had consumed us, so that there would be no remnant or survivor?”

Wrath comes when you do not properly respond to mercy:  2 Chronicles 32: 25 “But Hezekiah did not repay according to the favor shown him, for his heart was lifted up; therefore, wrath was looming over him and over Judah and Jerusalem.”

Look again at Ezra’s words: but He extended mercy to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to revive us, to repair the house of our God, to rebuild its ruins, and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem.”

Trump is a temporary reprieve.  Now we must do our part.  We must act on the mercy we have been shown.  He extended mercy so that we would do three things: Revive, Repair and Rebuild. 

Revive: God commands us to seek a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  We dare not have church without it!  We dare not utter another word in the pulpit that denies it!  The word of the Lord for this hour is: cry out to God with heart of gratitude for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

Here is the key promise if we do: 1 Samuel 10: 6 Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. 7 And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.

Repair:  The pulpit and our moral compass is broken.  They must be repaired!  Our wiring, plumbing and foundations are damaged.  Abortion and marriage are issues we lost because our leadership was broken.  We abandoned the Bible and did not arm ourselves or the congregation with convictions.

America need Lions who roar from a righteous heart.  Away with secret sin and lukewarm grace.  Prayer will repair.  The voice that shakes hell and frees men and women from bondage is forged only in fervent prayer.  Satan does not respect your stage presence, education or tactics.  He knows a prayless poser.  He only retreats before men and women who have been to Gethsemane.

Rebuild: We must come home to the Glorious Gospel.  We must dismantle all the silly things we have tried to say to this generation.  Forget about rebranding!  We need to rebuild our sermons from the ground up.  Let them be replete with Bible Verses.  Let them talk of the mighty God.  Fill them with content the Holy Spirit can use on lost souls!  The Good News must once again roll off our tongue in the office, on campus and at the mall.

The consequences of cheapening God’s mercy are too terrible to imagine.  The opportunity this miracle has opened is too wonderful to ignore.  That is the word of the Lord for this hour.

 

 

OBAMA OPERATIVE HINTS AT MILITARY COUP

“A former Defense Department official under the Obama administration has raised the specter of a military coup to remove President Donald Trump from power.

OBAMA OPERATIVE HINTS AT MILITARY COUP

“A former Defense Department official under the Obama administration has raised the specter of a military coup to remove President Donald Trump from power.   In an editorial penned for Foreign Policy, senior Pentagon policy official Rosa Brooks publicly suggested a military insurrection against the Trump administration may be the only option to oust one of the most divisive presidents in American history.

“Donald Trump’s first week as president has made it all too clear: Yes, he is as crazy as everyone feared,” Ms. Brooks wrote. “[One] possibility is one that until recently I would have said was unthinkable in the United States of America: a military coup, or at least a refusal by military leaders to obey certain orders.”

For the first time in her career in public service, including three years as senior counselor to the Pentagon’s policy chief from 2009 to 2011, “I can imagine plausible scenarios in which senior military officials might simply tell the president: ‘No, sir. We’re not doing that.’” -Carlo Muñoz – The Washington Times – Thursday, February 2, 2017

In my vigilant effort to keep you informed—not with hysteria or extremism but facts—I submit this crucial information to you.  We are witnessing a joint effort by the left to overrule your vote and topple our government.

The riots are not by accident.  The incessant railings from Movie Stars, Pop Stars are scripted for maximum impact.  We are watching a concerted effort to take down of the Constitution of the United States.

Anarchy is a part of the plan.  Democrats staying away from committee meetings to stop Trump appointments is part of the plan.  Placing operatives to leak information from the White House are a part of the plan.

Even the Super Bowl is not safe…Lady Gaga will use her half time performance at the Super Bowl to rail against our values, against you, me, and our newly elected president.

Look for rioters to take to the streets—burning and looting their way across America—with the tacit approval of the Democratic Party.  In the name of equality, they will go after our rights.  In the name of justice, they will practice total lawlessness.

How poignant is it that the rioters in Berkeley who snuffed out free speech were holding signs that said “Hate free Zone?”   They also did something prophetic: They screamed against fascism by practicing fascism.  No one can verify the origin of this statement but it certainly fits the current situation: “The fascists of the future will call themselves anti-fascists.”  (For some reason the left truly hates that quote and tries to call it right wing extremism).

fascists

The left understands that if the Supreme Court is balanced by Conservatives, the left will lose power for at least a generation.  Their goal is clear: Discredit Trump and force their way to power.

If ever you prayed for our president, pray for him now.  Think of this…there have been 12,000 tweets in the last 24 hours calling for his assassination.   How is that possible without advance planning?

What I am about to say will never appear in a Christian Magazine.  You will never hear this in a mega Church pulpit.  I will—once again—be accused of abandoning my calling.   Many leaders will totally shy away from the words I am about to speak:

THE AMERICAN CHURCH HAS BEEN CALLED OUT AND SHE FALLING BACK ASLEEP.  It has only been days since God granted a reprieve from certain destruction and already pastors have fallen back into passivity and lukewarm ministry.  Never forget, it was the people in the pew that put Trump in office.  This movement was not led by a majority of pastors.  Most sat it out and only complimented Trump only after they saw the ground swell of support.  Now that the heat is on, they are scurrying back to their safe place.

We are faced with the greatest threat to freedom of our lifetime.  How will we explain to our children and grandchildren—who will live under this tyranny—that we did nothing?

So, who am I to say anything?  I am not the famous leader of a denomination or a Christian movement.  I am just a simple man with a simple voice.

Unlike some of your favorites, I am a preacher beholden to no one but Jesus.  I do not have the clout of others, but I do have the courage.   It is time for Christian leaders to condemn this anarchy with one voice.   It is time for true awakening.  It is time for reformation.  It is time for the Word of God to be loudly and majestically declared to a sick and confused generation.

THE DEMOCRATS ARE DIGGING THEIR OWN GRAVE

My prediction is that Dems are digging their own grave and their revolt against his legitimacy will, in the short term at least, boost Trump’s popularity. Most Americans will conclude he is honestly trying to fulfill the mandate he won and that the fevered rush to destroy him is neither principled nor patriotic.

THE DEMOCRATS ARE DIGGING THEIR OWN GRAVE

By Michael Goodwin

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, the top Dems in Congress, led a raucous demonstration Monday night, as if they are community organizers. And Obama couldn’t bear the irrelevance after eight days out of office and felt compelled to encourage disruptions.

This is Third World behavior and it’s now the M.O. of one of America’s two political parties.

Then there’s California, the epicenter of Dem strength. Radicals there, spurred on by pro-Mexico immigrants, are ginning up an effort to split from the United States and they might get a proposal on the ballot. I say we take their wine and let them go.

If California secedes and its 55 electoral votes come off the board, Dems will never win another American election. On the other hand, Hillary Clinton could become president of the breakaway state and the rest of us would be free of the Clinton stain.

Secession is one way the swamp could drain itself. Sally Yates’ way is another.

The acting attorney general was rightfully sacked the instant after she climbed a soapbox and refused to defend Trump’s executive order in court. It would have been a more admirable gesture if she had the decency to resign. Instead, she thought she could defy the president and keep the job.

Her choice was not a minor act of insubordination. It was a public challenge to the constitutional authority of the president, a power left to Congress and the judiciary.

As a result, she was shunned and hid in disgrace. Oh, wait, that’s what would happen in a better world.

In this one, Democrats hailed her as a “patriot” amid predictions a political star is born.

My prediction is that Dems are digging their own grave and their revolt against his legitimacy will, in the short term at least, boost Trump’s popularity. Most Americans will conclude he is honestly trying to fulfill the mandate he won and that the fevered rush to destroy him is neither principled nor patriotic.

There is a catch: Our cultural impatience won’t give Trump endless time or big room for error. He must pick his fights with discretion and wage them with smart, methodical moves that bring clear results.

Equally key, he can’t become a prisoner of Washington. While social media is important, he must get out of town regularly to meet people where they live and remind them that he’s fighting their fights.

He should continue to court core Democrats, especially members of manufacturing unions and open-minded black and Latino voters.

If he does all that, and if he’s lucky, America will be great again. That’s what matters.

Donald Trump: Working to improve the lives of people who hate him

Donald Trump is working to improve the lives of those who hate him.  He is working to make life better for every demographic group that is calling for his removal and even his death.

Donald Trump: Working to improve the lives of people who hate him

Donald Trump is working to improve the lives of those who hate him.  He is working to make life better for every demographic group that is calling for his removal and even his death.

Even though only 8% of blacks voted for him and many black leaders vilify him, he is working to reduce crime, fix crumbling streets and buildings and bring real jobs and real hope to the inner city…I can see why you hate him.

He is working to improve the lives of women.  He built a multi-billion-dollar empire on a system of merit that promoted men and women equally.  He wants to make the workplace family friendly with maternity leaves that are stronger than our current federal law.

He wants to get government off the back of small business—women are the fastest growing group of small business owners.  I can see why women don stupid hats and cuss him out and call him Hitler.

Donald Trump is working for the native people of America.  No, the pipeline from Canada will not go through your burial grounds.  The president wants to make us energy independent so our enemies cannot turn our nation into a burial ground.

The President is working for the environmentalists who hate him.  Everyone knows the future is in renewable energy but we need a bridge to that future.  They remind me of the new-age midwives who want women to give birth cold-turkey just to feel all the pain. Environmentalists want to shut down all fossil fuels and create calamity for the rest of us—especially poor people.

These elitist environmentalists don’t have to drive a semi to feed their family.  They will fly around in private jets polluting the air while they lecture they poor fighting to get to work in the only car they can afford.  Refusing to build this bridge to renewable energy is a great way to kill the mother and the baby.

He is working for the poor by securing our borders.  When a criminal or a terrorist enters our country where do they go?  They immediately set up shop in the inner city.  They take the jobs from those who need them most—they plan their mischief in the ghetto.  I can see why Americans hate Trump…he is putting them first.

When will you wake up from your liberal media induced coma?  Obama had eight years to make black lives matter in Chicago.  He could have sent in the national guard and stopped the killing.  He was more concerned about Syrian refugees than you—I can see why you love him.

To the overwhelming number of millennials who live in your parent’s basement: I can see why you love Obama, he was more militant about putting men in women’s restrooms that he was about putting you in a real career.

And finally, to all of you celebrity Pastors still afraid of support Trump because he is not “pastor” material, let me say this: Would you stay in a church where half of the people lied about you every day and wanted you out.  Would you—knowing there were greener pastures, a bigger church with a higher salary and more adulation—stay and serve?

Government work?  Trump didn’t need it.  But tell me, where else could Obama have gone?  Can you see Barack trying to build a business in New York City?  He couldn’t do anything but government…and, in my opinion, he was deplorable in government—buttressed by the fantasies of the liberal left.

With all bias against him and the massive unfairness heaped on him…Trump still wants to make America great.  How easily—Mr. celebrity pastor—could Trump say, “the heck with all this, I don’t need this for me and my family.

There are many areas Donald Trump needs to grow spiritually but in one area he has zoomed ahead of most preachers: Matthew 5: 44 “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you…”

An inauguration followed by a regurgitation

Imagine what would happen to a conservative actor standing before 200,000 people and saying that Obama had wet dreams about his daughter and that she was his object of lust.  Imagine this same conservative calling Obama, Adolf Hitler.

An inauguration followed by a regurgitation

By Mario Murillo

Imagine what would happen to a conservative actor standing before 200,000 people and saying that Obama had wet dreams about his daughter and that she was his object of lust.  Imagine this same conservative calling Obama, Adolf Hitler.

The ensuing firestorm would engulf every media outlet.  People would line up to kill that person and it would probably be legal to do it in California.  That actor would not only never work in Hollywood again—he or she and their entire family would have to enter a witness protection program.

Nasty woman Ashley Judd spewed all of this out about Trump and it will enhance her career.  She will not be persecuted, she will not have to worry about backlash. She is a beneficiary of the most elaborate and dishonest double standard in American history.

On Friday, January 20, 2017, we had an inauguration.  Millions were inspired and encouraged by the beauty, pageantry, patriotism and moral conviction of the day long events.  We went to bed with a hope that the years of stagnation were giving way to renewed greatness.

Saturday, January 21, 2017, we had a mass regurgitation.  With apologies to bulimics everywhere, I say, nasty women—shoved their collective fingers down their throat and—upchucked the most putrid attitudes and nonsensical bile ever to contaminate the National Mall.

I refer to it as regurgitation because all the issues brought up in their vacuous screeching were digested and settled during the election—the people spoke—women voted for Trump in record numbers.  The election is over.

170121133750-12-womens-march-dc-super-169

This is not a blanket condemnation of these protestors. I am certain are many sincere and responsible women who came with an honest beef about America—who wanted Hillary to win.

What I am highlighting is the villains who hijacked the movement.  The same thing that happened to Black Lives Matter happened again today.   Nasty women led the demonstrations in obscene and silly rants. They are poisoned with arrogance, ignorance, and hate.

Arrogance because they insist that all women believe what they say simply because they said it.   It is arrogance to say that no women should be pro-life.  It is arrogance to say that the election was rigged simply because we say it is rigged.  It is arrogance to want martial law to force Trump out of office.

They raged about Russian hacking which was a mouse compared to the elephant in the room: Mainstream media bias for Clinton.

Ignorance in that they do not understand how the Constitution works (nor do they seem to care.)  Speaker after speaker vilified the electoral college—yea, they cursed the electoral college.  They accused people—who did their duty by honoring the votes of their respective states—of being traitors.

They are filled with hate.  Madonna hurling the mandatory F-bombs said she wanted to bomb the White House because Trump is Hitler.  Ashley, Madonna and so many other speakers competed to find new lows of obscene insults and mindless rage.

Leo Tolstoy observed that the way to tell how civilized a society is by what they consider laughable.  Today, what these women thought was funny, was horrifying.  And it is terrifying to think of the millions they influence.

But there is a great hope in this situation.  When you look at the pattern set by so many radicals on the left.  They seem to be powerful and flaring up in power.  But looks are deceiving.  Just before a star dies it becomes a supernova.  It’s like a last screaming hurrah before it expires.

As I said Black Lives Matters flared up and lost credibility.  So, will 68 Democratic leaders who boycotted the inauguration.  As so will these nasty women because they live in a bubble.  They don’t know that even close friends are queasy with their extremes.   Once you set a course of crudeness and ranting there is nowhere to go but down.NEW YORK - MAY 10: Donald Trump attends "The Celebrity Apprentice" season finale at the at American Museum of Natural History on May 10, 2009 in New York City.

A final sense of hope that I feel—and it will make the left rage more than anything else I can say—is the hand pf providence.   Hillary had everything.  She had Obama.  She had $1.2 billion to spend on her campaign.  She had every major news agency acting like a mouthpiece of her campaign…and yet she lost.

Trump, on the other hand, seemed to have the whole world against him.  And the endless number of opponents stepped to the plate to destroy him.  For reasons that escape human wisdom, he stayed alive.  He moved on and his enemies fell by the wayside.

When I would watch Kung Fu movies I always wondered about something:  After the hero had just whipped 50 men without breaking a sweat why did the others keep coming.   Did they think they could win?

To listen to these nasty women today you would think that Trump was a paper tiger.  I was like they knew nothing of what has happened in the last 18 months.  He’s been called these names before, none of their insults were new or eloquent.  They would be wise to survey the damage and carefully assess the situation.  They should see if their extreme vileness is only entertaining a shrinking core.

Patriotic Christians must be wise and vigilant too!   What happened today is the real state of affairs in this country.  I say this to wake you up!  Trump’s election did not erase leftist debauchery…it merely turned over the rock and allowed the vileness to scurry everywhere.  We cannot think t Trump’s election is the end of leftist insanity.  We can stare at a miracle and fall into apathy.  If anything, today’s regurgitation should make us resolved to build what has started.  It is time for us to be brave.  To bear insults and persecution and stand for righteousness at all cost.

 

Here’s a list of what Trump did in just 60 minutes as president

In case you are wondering if Trump will keep his promises…

 

In the first hour as president he did the following:

He rolled back an 11th-hour Obama administration rule that lowered home borrowers’ mortgage insurance costs.

The Federal Housing Authority uses that money to underwrite banks when low-income – and therefore high-risk – borrowers default on their loans.

Republicans argue that unless the FHA has significant cash reserves, all taxpayers including those with no stake in the housing market would be forced to pay for bailouts.

This happened in 2013, when the FHA required a $1.7 billion taxpayer cash infusion to keep going.

Back at the White House before a string of three inaugural balls, the new president inked formal commissions for a pair of retired Marine Corps general whom the U.S. Senate confirmed in their new cabinet roles.

Vice President Mike Pence swore them both in immediately.

Retired Gen. James Mattis is now the U.S. secretary of Defense. Retired Gen. John Kelly is secretary of Homeland Security.

Just as consequential were a pair of orders marking the Trump administration’s first firepower volley against Obamacare and signaling a massive, government-wide regulatory freeze.

The Obamacare executive order directs government departments and administrators to limit the cost of complying with the Affordable Care Act in every way possible while preparing for a Republican-dominated Congress to repeal and replace the law.

The regulatory memo, in the form of a memorandum from White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, orders federal agencies to cancel new regulations that haven’t yet been officially published and to delay for 60 days all those that are in place but haven’t yet taken effect.

It also orders bureaucrats to stop submitting most new regulations without first seeking White House approval.

Trump pledged during his campaign that he would pare back the American regulatory state in order to liberate the financial, energy and manufacturing sectors.

He also vowed to eliminate two federal regulations for every new one that takes effect.

 

LOOK AT WHAT TRUMP HAS JUST DONE ABOUT OBAMACARE

President Donald Trump directed government agencies on Friday to freeze regulations and take steps to weaken Obamacare, using his first hours in the White House to make good on a campaign promise to start dismantling his predecessor’s healthcare law.

By Jeff Mason and Roberta Rampton | WASHINGTON

President Donald Trump directed government agencies on Friday to freeze regulations and take steps to weaken Obamacare, using his first hours in the White House to make good on a campaign promise to start dismantling his predecessor’s healthcare law.

Heading into the Oval Office shortly after the conclusion of his inaugural parade, Trump signed an order on the Affordable Care Act that urged government departments to “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation” of provisions that imposed fiscal burdens on states, companies or individuals.

It also called for efforts to give states greater flexibility in implementing healthcare programs while developing “a free and open market in interstate commerce for the offering of healthcare services and health insurance.”

Health experts had speculated that Trump could expand exemptions from the so-called individual mandate, which requires Americans to carry insurance or face a penalty, or the requirement that employers offer coverage.

Experts also believe the administration could try to reduce the “essential benefits,” such as maternity care and mental health services, that insurance plans must cover.

The White House did not provide further details about the executive order.

Trump’s spokesman Sean Spicer said the White House also directed an immediate regulatory freeze for all government agencies in a memo from Trump’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus. He did not offer details.

Repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, one of former President Barack Obama’s signature laws, was a central pledge for Trump during the presidential election campaign. Republicans in the U.S. Congress have not yet laid out a plan to recast the insurance program.

In a hastily arranged ceremony, surrounded by some of his aides, Trump sat behind the presidential Resolute Desk and signed the order. He also signed commissions for his newly confirmed defense secretary, James Mattis, and his homeland security secretary, John Kelly.

Trump spoke briefly about his day with reporters. “It was busy, but good. It was a beautiful day,” he said.
