Yes, we are going to see a scorched earth political campaign from the left. They will be carpet bombing the nation with propaganda. The flood of fake news, character assassination, and criminal activity during the election season will be worse than anything you have ever seen. At a certain point, it will look impossible for our side to win. However, I know we can—I know God wants to do a miracle.
I have sought the Lord. These days of my slow recovery do have a downside for Satan. I have time to pray, study, think, and write. Last night it hit me. There are 5 clear and notable steps to a miracle in November. Here they come:
1. Activate: Realize that there are more of us than you know. There are millions who love Jesus, America, and support our president. You don’t need to engage in endless debates and change someone’s mind—all you have to do is activate those of like mind.
Activate them by telling them what is at stake. By taking the House and the Senate, the left can do as much damage as having Hillary in the White House. The first thing they will do is impeach Donald Trump. While it will take more than impeachment to remove him from office—they will move to do that next.
Ask if they are registered to vote. Ask what their plan is to make sure they vote. Talk to them about studying a sample ballot so that they will prepared to vote correctly. Talk to them about early voting. Make sure they know where to vote.
2. Talk to your pastor. Make sure you do not threaten to leave if you don’t get your way. Gently ask if he or she would consider instructing the Body on what is at stake. One fact should outweigh everything else: THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS DECLARED WAR ON CHRISTIANITY. You are not lying or exaggerating when you tell that to leader.
Spiritual leaders need to know they are not getting political by being vocal about the election. It’s the Democrats who have gotten anti-God. It is a natural extension of a preacher’s calling to destroy the works of Satan, which in this case, is the left’s plan to drive the church underground.
3. Educate yourself on the issues and take public stands. No, I don’t want you glued to cable news, but you should understand your why you are pro-life, pro second amendment, and why you support the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Yes, you can win debates and change minds. When your child comes home from school a victim of leftist encroachment, you should know your parental rights. I have found that many ideas of the left are easily defeated, and young minds believe silliness because they have never heard an opposing view.
Write letters to editors. Call into radio shows. You’ll be amazed at how much noise you can make, and how many minds you can change.
4. Understand that by taking stands against leftists you are not being unloving. Paul knew when to stand up for his civil rights: Acts 16: 36 “So the keeper of the prison reported these words to Paul, saying, “The magistrates have sent to let you go. Now therefore depart, and go in peace.” 37 But Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out. 38 And the officers told these words to the magistrates, and they were afraid when they heard that they were Romans.” Paul knew his rights. He didn’t worry that he was unloving. He forced a political change in that city.
5.Understand warfare intercession. Prayer can’t be polite in this election cycle. It must be intense. It must be targeted. It must be deliberate. It must discern what is happening. Arthur Matthews said, “principalities and powers in heavenly places have mustered their unseen array rigged their Trojan horse infiltrated society and opened the gates for a flood of evil to take over.”
Once alerted to that inescapable fact the soldier of Jesus must set themselves to unleash heaven of the powers of evil. Tragically, most believers are ignorant of the invisible battle. Edith Schaeffer says that “there is a deadness, a blindness, an insensitivity among many Christians, for they refuse to recognize the war in which they are involved.”
The good news is that Jehovah only needs a handful of true intercessors to thwart Satan’s plans in this coming election. You must understand however, your duty, and your authority. Again, Arthur Matthews says, “Barriers are not moved by God’s omnipotence until the believer takes the initiative and stands his ground in the heavenly places to engage the powers of evil that are directly the cause of the ground-level troubles, and resists them in the name of the Victor of Calvary.”
When the enemy came to steal Israel’s water Moses took action to cut off demonic power at the source: Exodus 17: 8 Now Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim. 9 And Moses said to Joshua, “Choose us some men and go out, fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand.”
So long as Moses held up the rod over the battle the Amalekites were defeated. You know the rest, Aaron and Hur held up his arm until victory came.
Hold up the standard of God in prayer. Hold it over the demons who drive the left to their insane extremes. Let your intercession disrupt them. Watch as God divides, confuses, and neutralizes the strategies of devils until we see a miracle in November. Hallelujah!
Tens of thousands of high school students protesting nationwide spell doom for Trump as the nation veers left. A Democrat wins in Pennsylvania district that Trump took by 20 points, means a blue wave is coming in the midterm elections. The 60 Minutes interview with Stormy Daniels will bring Donald Trump down in scandal. Trump’s economy is called a fizzle as first quarter GDP projection drops. Christian influence will disintegrate in a post Billy Graham world.
It’s all a smoke screen! Don’t panic and don’t believe it. Let me give you the truth.
- Let me begin with the gun protests. Mass protests tend to fizzle when the dust settles and America gets a chance to think. Remember Madonna? “I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.” A chorus of cheers led gave way to some soul-searching and then the stupidity of it all surfaced.
The gun protests, where the Democratic Party used thousands of class-cutting high school students as body shields will not change facts. In fact, the protest itself provided its own best argument against it. Who can forget the visual of hypocritical Democratic leaders marching to the podium to protest guns escorted by armed guards.
Americans won’t buy the histrionics. Passing new gun control measures would blame good, honest people for the acts of murderers. Passing new gun control laws won’t protect our kids, because criminals willing to commit murder will never obey the law.
2. The election of a Democrat in Pennsylvania is meaningless. Because of redistricting this district will not even exist. Both Saccone and Lamb may end up running in November in different districts, and both may win their races if they do. Forget the special election being predictive on a national basis; it may not even be predictive for Pennsylvania.
3. This doesn’t spell doom for the Republicans in the midterm elections: Heading into November, Republicans have a distinct edge in resources and infrastructure. The party committees dedicated to the Senate and House have remained competitive with each other, but the RNC has outperformed the DNC by a wide margin. The RNC has over $40 million cash-on-hand after setting a new record for off-year donations, while the DNC barely has enough cash (a little over $6 million) to cover its existing debt.
4. Stormy Daniels interview on 60 minutes will bring Donald Trump down. Wait. Didn’t this porn star just tell Jimmy Kimmel that she absolutely never had an affair with Donald Trump? Enough said.
5. First quarter GDP projection drops. Trump’s tax cut failed? The Conference Board, a global, independent business membership and research association, said this about the first quarter drop yesterday: “ “2018 has started with a small slowdown in consumption and investment numbers, and our GDP forecast for the first quarter has been revised downward from 3.3 to 2.6 percent. But this pullback doesn’t detract from a strong 2018 outlook. The business environment for this year and next still looks bright, especially because the labor market created more than 200,000 jobs per month over the past six months.”

6. Finally, their threat and hope that the church will fade and falter defies history. In times of moral confusion, the hearts of people turn back to core values. Already, that trend is growing. Yes, Billy Graham is in heaven. All that means is others will be raised up. The leftist media will ignore moral awakening because it is a threat to their agenda.
It also defies the Word of God: Jesus said in Matthew 16:18 “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.”
Yes, we have a lot work ahead of us to transform America but this is just a smokescreen—don’t let these lies unsettle your spirit.
The leftist media is irrelevant to America. Let me prove it to you. More than that, let me show you why it matters to you. The proof is glaring, and the left can no longer run from it. Here’s the proof:
CBS, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times, along with the not so subtle help of Youtube, Google, Facebook, Yahoo, every late night talk show host, backed Obama. They were praising, pumping, and drooling. They called anyone racist who didn’t support him. Yet, at this point in his presidency—he had a 43% approval rating among likely voters. With all that firepower they simply could move the needle above 43%.
Now the wrath of that entire media cabal is being poured out 24 hours a day on Trump and his supporters. Yet, Trump’s approval is at least 5 to 6 points higher than Obama at the same point. What does that mean? It means they are irrelevant—and they have been for years. They have a hardcore following but things are getting worse.
Reality came on election night. Crestfallen and dismayed they wailed, cried, and sank horrified. Not just because Trump won but because they were repudiated. They petulantly signed off telling us it was the end of the world. That didn’t happen either.
On the other hand, Fox News continued to dominate ratings—commanding an audience that is larger than many leftist medias combined. Most damaging to the left is the fact that conservative outlets tend to change minds. There’s a reason.
The left rants and spouts slogans but rarely makes a common sense case. Conservatives ask disturbing questions. Here’s an admittedly oversimplified example: Left leaning broadcast: “You are racist!” Conservative site: “Chicago has the strictest gun laws in America and a high murder rate. Why?”
But nothing is costing the left more than the Mueller investigation i.e. witch hunt. The left’s towering hypocrisy is front and center for all to see. They decry foreign influence on our election while they are fighting to let illegals vote.
Here are other signs that the left leaning media is running out of gas:
-Tonight Jimmy Kimmel said he will tone down the Trump bashing as he hosts the Academy Awards.
-The NFL, The Olympics and every other sport hijacked for the left is suffering ratings collapse.
-Even the L.A. Times, printed an article yesterday saying California should not be obstructing federal law when it comes to illegal immigration.
-Abortion is becoming abhorrent to many young people. Planned Parenthood is panicking and dropping tens of millions of dollars to elect democrats.
What does this mean? It means there is a growing audience for moral absolutes and a message of personal responsibility.
What does that mean to you? It means that the church has preached a muted Gospel for no good reason. It means, the idea that the public didn’t want a message of love and repentance was a myth.
It means that throughout history, the church has never looked worse than when she tried to reflect cultural thought. And, she never looked better than when she shined the unfiltered light of the Gospel. We just laid to rest living proof of this fact: Billy Graham.
It means most of all that there is great opening for us. We don’t know how long it will last so we better jump on it. My final statement can make the devil pull a muscle in his head:
God is looking for people—maybe you. He is not looking for better technology or methods. He doesn’t pour out His Spirit on technology or methods…but on people. People who will pray for fire, wisdom, courage and opportunity. If God has heard of you, who cares if anyone else has?
Today, a voice filled with love, truth and the Holy Spirit will cut through this culture like a hot knife through butter. The Gospel is not just relevant—it is timeless. It can answer the evil of today and also what is to come. Amen.
Dear Christian Save Yourself from the Democratic Party. Yes, you heard me right—get out while you can. The Democratic Party’s last shred of credibility died during Trump’s State of the Union address. While 75% of Americans approved of Trump’s speech, the scowling, aging waxworks of the DP’s leadership sat like barnacles on a corroding ship.
They could not even cheer for our military veterans. They frowned at the American Flag and the National Anthem. Their bitter faces found no compassion for a couple whose daughters were murdered by illegal alien members of the MS-13 gang.
Do a snap comparison.
The Republican platform: The Trump/Republican platform has created the lowest jobless rate for blacks in history. The Stock Market has set more records in less time than ever. Trump’s tax break has Disney, Home Depot, and many other corporations giving out thousand dollar bonuses to entire work forces. (Nancy Pelosi called this crumbs.)
Money is coming back to America from overseas just as Trump predicted. Even at the hostile World Economic Summit in Davos, Switzerland, European companies said they would invest in America.
The Democratic Platform: Hate Trump.
(Oh yeah…and hate Christians). They are deranged to the point of thinking, speaking, breathing, and spewing nothing but Trump hate.
Their breathtaking arrogance alone, should make you abandon them—like nuclear waste! They take their base completely for granted. They live in an alternate reality. They believe they can say or do anything and their base will blindly follow them.
If you are a believer get out. You should get out because they told you to get out. They pulled the welcome mat out from under you, years ago. Democrats have screamed WE DON’T WANT YOU at Christians for decades. They deem the Bible to be a hateful, obsolete tome. They find everything you believe to be racist, sexist, homophobic, and every other phobia.
A Christian Democrat in California makes as much sense as a screen door on a submarine. The Democratic Party is the reason Christians are fired in Silicon Valley for sharing their faith. Sacramento is a seething nest of anti-Christian sentiment.
Whatever pulse of decency they had as a national party stopped last night in that hallowed hall. Their deranged hearts and minds were on full display for the world to see: they hate everything you hold dear.
For the love of God—and, I mean that literally—save yourself.
There are reasons the original 12 were so bold. There are reasons they preached letting the chips fall where they may. They understood that at some point, they must offend. They disregarded their personal safety—and for good reasons. Those reasons escape today’s motivational-speaker-preachers who live not to offend. They just don’t get it.
At some point, we must offend
By Mario Murillo
There are reasons the original 12 were so bold. There are reasons they preached letting the chips fall where they may. They understood that at some point, they must offend. They disregarded their personal safety—and for good reasons. Those reasons escape today’s motivational-speaker-preachers who live not to offend. They just don’t get it. Here is how A.W. Tozer described the true preacher, “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.”
Before some lazy reader jumps to a wrong conclusion let me say—we are not to try to offend. We are not to give offense. My point is that leaving truth out to avoid offending is a disaster—when it is wildly successful, it is an even greater disaster. Spurgeon said, “It is a very ill omen to hear a wicked world clap its hands and shout ‘Well done’ to a Christian man.”
It is a great evil when congregations reward you, yea enrich you, and raise you to superstar status because you keep God’s rightful demands off them.
When you take aim at a vastly successful far-flung enterprise, you are easily rejected because how can you deny its effectiveness? How can you keep from sounding petty and jealous?
The reason it is hard to see why it is valid to criticize attraction churches is because we don’t know what might have been. We don’t know how America would look like today had we obeyed the Holy Spirit instead of the laws of marketing.
They did not offend and they also did not stop the moral avalanche. On their watch, we lost marriage—we lost millions of unborn—we lost so much that we cannot even recognize America. And most ironically, after all the efforts to avoid offending, the public hates the church more than ever.
Here are the reasons we must offend:
Preaching the entire Gospel releases power. 1 Corinthians 1:18 “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
Romans 1: 16 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes…”
Why is the phrase power of God in two verses that deal with the offense of the Gospel? Why would Paul even use the qualifier “I am not ashamed?” Because, as a top-flight intellectual, he was keenly aware of the parts of the Gospel that tweak the human brain, and offend “proper society.” He welcomes the tweak because it releases great power.
The American Church has a day of reckoning with American culture. The clash is inevitable because our society has become an open sewer, a bastion of banality where madness has the microphone. We have the one message that should not be hidden or redacted.
When the suffering soul tastes peace that passes understanding, and joy unspeakable—when marriages are healed—when suicidal teenagers are filled with a will to live—when the lame walk, the blind see, cancers vanish and addictions break in one-step instead of 12, then the Cross, the Blood, and repentance become—what they truly are: the best thing humanity has ever heard. We must offend in order to heal.
When Journalists took sides in the election and let Hillary Clinton dictate their campaign coverage they began to self-destruct. Here’s why their war on fake news will finish them off.
In a piece for Market Watch by Darrell Delamaide, just days before the election predicted their implosion: “Newspapers have long since been doomed by the digital revolution and the collapse of their economic model. New waves of buyouts and layoffs recently announced by the New York Times, USA Today and the Wall Street Journal mark another step by print media toward extinction.
Broadcast networks, too, face severe difficulties as new technologies and changes in viewing habits transform the television industry and bring new challenges to news operations.
But it is the bias of the establishment media so blatantly in favor of the establishment candidate, Hillary Clinton, that may strip these news organizations of their last claim to value — as an objective and authoritative source of information — and hasten their demise.”
You would think when the media was outed as biased and dishonest they would changed their ways. As Frank Luntz said, “After Election Day, the media promised to improve substantive reporting and focus on real issues. They have learned nothing.”
Their mental disconnect is stunning. Derek Hunter said, “You hear it all the time – MSNBC and CNN hosts and pundits can’t fathom the concept of their policies being unwanted any more than they can accept that they don’t work. Their losses have to be caused by other factors.
Since the election, Democrats have blamed everything but a comet, a plague and the death of Prince for the GOP winning the White House and holding Congress. A couple more appearances by Howard Dean on TV, and you probably will start to hear about comets and plagues.”
If being in the tank for Hillary began their doom…here is what will seal it: THEIR WAR AGAINST “FAKE NEWS.” Back in October, Obama—flush with overconfidence that Hillary would win—said “there is no way to rig the election.” Now he believes the election has been rigged. The media agrees and they are pushing the fake news narrative.
What they are purporting boggles the mind: Wikileaks was more powerful than all the liberal media!
Think about it…the left just levelled the greatest insult ever to NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and all the other legacy news media. How weak are you when your combined influence is less than one lonely website? But it gets even more mind-numbing.
The Gallup poll says 68% of all Americans say the liberal media fakes the news, yet they have started a crusade against fake news. Hypocrisy does not begin to cover this. This is irrational.
Irrational people will not listen to reason. They don’t care about rational explanations. They want to fulfill a need right away. The media will behave irrationally until that need is fulfilled. The media needs to be right but America says they are wrong. America is telling them that if you do not want to tell the truth we will not buy your product.
A sane person or company would heed that warning. The fact that the media is pushing the fake news narrative—which is astoundingly embarrassing and without merit—proves they would rather die than admit they are wrong. Sadly, they will get their wish.
However, this opens a gigantic door for the Gospel in America. This is because the message of Jesus was a prime target of the media. Being the mouthpiece of secular progressives and Hillary meant they had to discredit and lie about Christianity.
The media called the Gospel sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic, anti-science, anti-immigrant and on and on. Christian values became the all-purpose thing to be offended by. It was the last legal prejudice. But something has changed!
I tested this fact by saying deliberately saying Merry Christmas to someone I knew didn’t like it. At first, they gave me a scowl. Then they caught themselves. I could see it in their eyes. That moment of recognition. Thinking this wonderful gesture is a symbol of oppression is a silly thing of the past.
But it goes much deeper than that. People tried to protest churches for supporting Trump. That is gone. The insults have gone. The late-night comedians feel the fatigue of a public that is sick of leftist rants. It is not funny anymore. Teachers don’t get away with class rants against God and America anymore.
College students—millennial snowflakes who whimper, cry foul at anything Christian and run to safe spaces look real pathetic to the public. Something has changed. The shift is unmistakable.
A door to share the love and power of Jesus has opened. But it will not stay open long. We have this golden moment of opportunity for a handful of years.
The left will come back like a rash. They will regroup and once again try to control the nation. They cannot help themselves. In the meantime, we must preach the Good News without apology or hesitation. Revival–heaven sent true revival–will build a new nation under God that will stand the test of time.
