Christian Leader: Do you really care about your people?

Some of you Christian leaders won’t mention politics from your pulpit. You don’t take public stands on abortion, same sex marriage, or the leftist takeover of America. I am talking to those of you who won’t support Donald Trump. You who believe all these subjects are divisive and outside the jurisdiction of your pulpit.

Here’s the thing—by doing this you are hurting the people, and hurting them badly. You are hurting them in ways you never imagined.

Not only that, but hurting the people is more dangerous than you might think. You will give an account before God for withholding truth, care, protection and guidance. Hebrews 13:17 is a warning to believers to “obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.”

You know what’s even more chilling about those verses? They tell the people that they should put their trust in you because you realize you must give an account to God.

I did an experiment when preaching recently in Fresno. I asked a packed house some questions.

“How many of you have been threatened at work for witnessing?” Hands went up.

“How many of you have had a child sent home for wearing a Christian T-shirt?” Hands went up.

“How many of you have been fired because of what you said about your beliefs on social media?” Hands went up again.

Then I turned to all the pastors and leaders and asked them, “Are you preaching comfort to these sheep? Are you training them to give an answer? Are you taking action against persecution in your area by confronting politicians and government about religious freedom?”

These and many other kinds of things that the Left does are inflicting pain on your people. They should not be forced to be silent or suffer because they are not properly trained to push back on leftist bullies. Neither should their children have to suffer.

In my book Vessels of Fire and Glory I wrote: “Pastors who refuse to clarify their political positions are ignoring hazards their people face every day. Politics hurt. Its costs Christian bakers their business, it costs believers being fired from their jobs, students getting expelled. It’s why men in bizarre women’s clothes and make up are reading to children in public Libraries. Politics is why you and I are accused of hate speech. Politics is why many Christian outlets have stopped performing marriages. Politics is why your tax dollars fund the cost of abortion. You did not leave the Democrat party, it left you. They told God to get out. They booed God and Israel at their convention. They champion everything your Bible condemns. They are now controlled by the radical wing of their party, a wing that will gladly finance terror and give illegal criminals Constitutional rights. What part of that is still unclear to you? THIS IS NOT ABOUT LEGISLATING MORALITY…IT’S ABOUT STOPPING THE LEGISLATION OF IMMORTALITY.”

Peter told the Sanhedrin officials he would not obey their commands if it contradicted God’s word. Acts 4:19 “But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge, 20 for we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”

Then he did something else—something every loving leader should do: Verse 23 “And being let go, they went to their own companions and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said to them.” Peter told them, because the threat affected them as well.

The solution was a prayer for boldness to tell the truth and for miracles to confirm the Gospel. Verse 29: “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.”

How can you ask God to look at a threat that you refuse to admit is a threat?

My last question is about the debacle of Trump’s impeachment. Is it just because it’s Trump that you can’t see the catastrophe? Is it because it is just easier avoid confrontation? Are you aware that your silence comes at a price you can never repay?

We will all pay with our children’s future if we do not openly rebuke this miscarriage of justice. Democrats have invented a crime. Then they invented a way to prosecute that crime. Then they told you that they would use their invented power to destroy anyone who gets in their way.

If they can do this to Trump they can do this to you, and worst of all, they can do it to the souls God told you to take care of. If you love them—inform them—train them—encourage them—and empower them, to walk in the truth, and in the might of God.

Acts 20: 26 “Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men. 27 For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God.”

 

 

WHY THIS WILL BACKFIRE

Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler are officially delusional. And I say that as a Christian who prays for his enemies and blesses those who curse me. I have been doing a lot of praying and blessing lately…

With a grin that is both giddy and sardonic, Nancy handed the Senate a document that might as well have been a ‘how-to’ manual on the care and feeding of unicorns.

Hate is a funny thing. Consider Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner. No matter how many Acme anvils fall from the sky—no matter how many bombs blow up in his face—no matter how many times he falls to earth leaving coyote-shaped craters, he never learns, and the chase must go on.

Consider Lev Parnas—the October surprise that came in January, a witness who evokes all the sympathy and excitement that the second Darrin did on Bewitched. It was so, so typical. We’ll wait until the last minute and drop this on them! Step right up ladies and gentlemen—we finally have the smoking gun; we have the proof we yearned for. Will it finally stick this time? Will we catch our prey? (Cue the anvil).

What keeps them going? We know it can’t be facts. This is the Democrat version of the movie Cats.  Audiences kept waiting for the movie to make sense, instead it just got cringier and cringier.

Then there was the week that the impeachment investigation ended. The gleeful ‘gang of three’ skipped joyfully in the halls, only to be told Trump’s approval rating had risen. They were crestfallen, but then the opiate of hate kicked in again. And their collective delusional grins returned.

But you say, “Mario haven’t you heard the things that CNN, Rachel Maddow, NBC and a galaxy of other experts are saying? Yes. I have. But can you find a single person, one who doesn’t hate Trump, who is neutral, and who is saying that this fake news propaganda is any kind of a threat to Trump?

Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler are taken in by their own arrogance. They still believe they have something on Trump. They still believe that this impeachment hoax is going to stop him. What they have encountered instead, is a law of physics: Every action has an equal reaction. The nastier they get, the greater the blow-back is going to be.  Because they’ve got nothing.

 

Something I discovered about Satan by reading the Bible. You can tell the devil about the lake of fire. You can tell him to his face that all his schemes will ultimately fail on a grand scale, but he will never believe you. The Democrats who are in his company need to beware, because they have fallen prey to the same kind of denial.

The stage is set for another big backfire. Don’t you dare fret over reports that say, “Irreparable damage has been done to the President.” That hollow statement is right up there with, “Socialism works.”

Here is the real outcome: America will get sick of the unfairness and the nonsense. The President will not be removed from office. His base will become more hardcore. The nation will give the Left the same scolding that Ricky Gervais gave at the Golden Globes “Nobody cares what you think. You have no right to tell anyone about anything.”

Instead of strengthening their position, Nancy, Adam and Jerry are about to evoke the last emotions you ever want to get from the American voter: Pity and scorn. God bless America!

Will Supporting Trump Ruin my Witness?

One of the arguments made by the editor of Christianity Today Magazine was that supporting Trump ruined our witness to America. No one yearns to win souls more than I do, therefore, I will tackle this argument, beginning with a story that seems to be analogous.

After the United States Army liberated the German concentration camps, General Eisenhower viewed the incomprehensible horror. His reaction was to make every soldier in the area come and see it for themselves.

When he was asked why he had subjected these men to such savagery and why he forced them to view images which they could never wash from their minds, he said this, “We are told that the American soldier does not know what he was fighting for. Now, at least he will know what he is fighting against.”

Millions of Christians look at Trump and see a man who is not perfect. He is not their model of a true believer. They reject him because they know what they are striving for: gentleness, civility and increased church attendance. What they do not know is what they are fighting against.

I know this, because whenever they attack Trump they offer no alternative for the office of President. They can’t tell you who else they would rather vote for. Or they assume it doesn’t matter if Democrats win. They only know they are offended by Trump’s behavior. But how does his behavior appear when compared to the horror of what the Left will do to this nation?

No doubt American soldiers had heard of the atrocities committed by Hitler and the Nazis, but they had not witnessed it first-hand. That is, not until they saw with their own eyes the ovens, the mountains of bones, and hundreds of rotting corpses.

Likewise, it is one thing to see leftists selling candles that say “Abortions are magical” and quite another to witness a baby being dismembered in an abortion clinic.  Or to see a baby survive an abortion and then overhear an impossibly inhuman conversation, such as, “We’ll keep it comfortable until the doctor and the mother can decide what to do next.”  How worried are you now, about how ‘rude’ Trump appears?

Does it ruin my altar calls in the tent when I support President Trump? Please, don’t reveal your ignorance if you don’t realize what an inner city is actually like. It is a cruel, disgraceful, soul-crushing place. And it’s the total property and legacy of the Left. They have crushed all decency in every city they control.  Hopes and dreams die daily on an unprecedented scale.

California’s inner cities scream of injustice and abhorrent abuse. Not only is the machinery of government not stopping homelessness—they are actually causing it!

When I stand in the tent and proclaim the miracle of new life in Jesus, I declare the hope, the power, and the love that awaits them. I challenge them to break free. Of course, they need to be freed from sin. They need to be freed from addictions. But they also must be set free from something else.

It’s a funny thing that no one in the church attacked me when I preached against heroin. No one criticized my messages against violent gangs. But when, by the Holy Spirit, I identified a drug worse than meth, which is socialism, and a gang worse than MS-13, the baby slaughtering, corrupt, Left, suddenly I was surrounded by timid souls who tried to hide behind empty platitudes.

Will supporting Trump ruin my witness? Not for the masses who crowd our altars for Jesus. They couldn’t care less about political correctness.

Wake up Christian! Don’t be like those reluctant recruits who served under Patton and hated him because they thought him a crude and nasty leader but they  forgot the monster he was trying to kill. Be honest! Do you not see the blatant abuse of power? Do you not see how power is being centralized under tyrants who hate God, who hate freedom, hate your faith, and want to dominate your children’s future?  Can you not see how vicious they are, how deviant they are and how determined they are to manipulate every aspect of American life?

I never neglect to preach a scripture-laden message to lost souls. They understand what I mean when I tell them to get off drugs. But, I also tell them they need to get out of the mental-slave-plantation of the Left. It’s lukewarm Christians who don’t get it.  Is it because they don’t want to?

You may know what you are fighting for, but I am for Trump because he knows, like I know, what we are all fighting against, and what the stakes are if we lose America.

What Every Christian Must Understand

What you are watching unfold in the House of Representatives is not simple hatred, it is something deeper. It is total desperation. The Democrat elite are feverishly conducting a sham trial because they don’t know what else to do. However, this impeachment is simply one more of the same tactics they have been using all along.

It all began the night Hillary lost. They never imagined Trump would win. They had no contingency plan in case Trump won. Not even the hare when he was racing the tortoise was this overconfident. They were caught flat-footed. That November night in 2016, they became the party with no plan.

Then their worst nightmare began to materialize. Trump began making America great again. They became so desperate that they rooted for the economy to fail. They actually wanted poverty to increase. But most of all, they began to lie—and lie big.

Their next act was straight out of Hitler’s propaganda minister’s playbook.  Joseph Goebbels said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it, and you will come to believe it yourself. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Today, truth is the enemy of the Democrat Party.

Let’s examine the similarities in Goebbels tactics on behalf of the National Socialist Party and the American Socialist Party.

1. How is it possible for something like the Russian collusion hoax—which has been so utterly discredited—to still have so many who believe in it? Simple: Democrats told the lie often enough for people to believe it.

2. How is it possible that some of the Democrat elite believe it themselves? Goebbels was right, eventually you will come to believe it yourself.

3. The Democrat Party has shut down free speech. They work to destroy witnesses who oppose them. They called for a total information blackout to bury the consequences of their failures in those big cities where they are in power. Their failed policies have bankrupted those cities and turned them into hell holes. To maintain the lie, they summoned their cronies in the media, entertainment, and education to declare war on free speech.

But, when you have the truth you don’t shut down debate. You welcome opposing views. But they can’t, because any scrutiny reveals their monstrous failure.

4. From the moment Trump entered the White House they began their campaign of terror. They have used endless bogus investigations to deflect attention from their abysmal failures. Their tactic of misdirection has kept you and their constituents from seeing that they were doing absolutely nothing for the American people.

How did they get away with doing nothing?  Again, it’s simple: from their perches of power, leftists buttressed the ‘do-nothing congress.’  And their allies in the Fake News were silent. Hollywood celebrities glorified anything that was done to stop Trump. Democrats took an oath to serve the American people, and then lied through their teeth.

How right was Goebbels? “The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.”

5. They began to ask born again Christians to get out of the way. They celebrate abortions, calling them ‘magical.’ They attack the church at every turn. They check off every box of immorality. They have embraced atheism as they have made it crystal clear that believers are their enemy.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/12/09/abortion-funders-christmas-theme-abortions-are-magical/

6. And finally, there is the impeachment debacle. When you look into Nancy Pelosi’s eyes you see perplexity. She knows it is all smoke and mirrors. She can barely read the charges against Trump with a straight face. Democrats are starting to show liar fatigue…

So why do they keep going? For the same huge reason they started down this road to perdition: they fear Trump will be reelected.  They know they have a clown car full of candidates. Even Michael Bloomberg believes it. He said, “Trump will eat them alive.”

Here’s what truly terrifies them: If Trump can get this much done even with the total war Democrats have waged on him…what could he do in a second term with a mandate the Democrats can’t stop, and they face the specter of losing power in the House and Senate.

Why do they keep going? Why are they risking a tsunami of a backlash from the American people? Why persist in doing something that is so disastrous?

For the answer to that, we can turn to Macbeth. In the play, Macbeth kills King Duncan, Banquo, and Macduff’s family in response to the prophesies of the witches. He killed Duncan to make the first of the prophesies come true. Then he killed Banquo and Macduff in a vain attempt to PREVENT the other prophesies from coming true.

After these murders, he dreams he is in a river of blood. What he says next explains the Democrat Party’s descent into total self-destruction: “I am in blood stepped in so far that should I wade no more, returning were as tedious as go o’er.” Democrats feel that. They are in so deep that they feel they have no choice but to go through with it.

So once again, they must lie, break the law, cast aside rules and abandon all reason, because backing down now will be as tedious as going through with it.

You are watching spiritual warfare in its purist form. Every Christian must understand this or they cannot take the proper stand against it.

Let every believer learn a lesson. You may be able to defeat the prophecies of witches…but you cannot defeat the prophecies of God.

“Many are the plans of man, but it is God’s plans that will stand.” (Proverbs 19:21)

Trump is not impeached

Trump is not impeached here’s why: Let me quote from the National Review: “A Harvard law professor who was a pro-impeachment witness called by Democrats now says that President Trump might not technically be impeached if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declines to send the articles to the Senate.

“The Constitution doesn’t say how fast the articles must go to the Senate. Some modest delay is not inconsistent with the Constitution, or how both chambers usually work,” Noah Feldman wrote in a newspaper column.

But, he added, the speaker has to eventually forward them to the Senate for the proceedings to be legitimate.

“Both parts are necessary to make an impeachment under the Constitution: The House must actually send the articles and send managers to the Senate to prosecute the impeachment. And the Senate must actually hold a trial,” he continued.

“If the House does not communicate its impeachment to the Senate, it hasn’t actually impeached the President. If the articles are not transmitted, Trump could legitimately say he wasn’t truly impeached at all.”

Pelosi is hilarious!  She wants guarantees that the Senate will be fair after pulling off the most unfair trial in recent memory.

She needn’t worry about fairness. The Senate will be fair for reasons that escape the leftist mind. Rational people understand when you have done nothing wrong you don’t fear facts.  You don’t mind opposing views. This is why Trump said he was glad to have a trial.

The intention of the Democrat controlled House was to feed a lie, while the Senate will seek to find the truth. What they will find, among other things, is that Adam Schiff conducted a witch hunt to advance his own career.

There is only a delay because they are choosing between death by hanging or by firing squad. There is no pleasant outcome for Democrats. Should Pelosi hold back the Articles (hanging), this will all go down as a pathetic piece of unfinished business.  If she delivers that hot mess to the Senate (firing squad) it will be examined in the light of day and shot full of holes.

In the end, Democrats got nothing they wanted and everything they feared. Trump’s approval jumped 6 points. The economy is booming. Trump’s base is not just fired up, they are now filled with a holy resolve.

Right now it looks like we will finish this year with a President who is not the third president to be impeached. So let’s focus on Christmas!

Something I will now begin to write about from now, until that glorious day, celebrating the birth of Jesus!

NOW WE HAVE THE PROOF

Nancy is proving to you that this has just been a smear campaign all along by, at least thus far, refusing to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate.  And she probably will never send them for that very reason.

She has nothing with which to justify impeaching Donald Trump, and she knows it.

Jerry Nadler presided over the most embarrassing display of lopsided justice in modern history. At times he reminded me of Kim Jong-un. His dictatorial banging of the gavel and utter disregard for the rules of Congressional hearings would be comical if they weren’t so dangerous.

And Adam Schiff is the winner of the Joe McCarthy Award for conducting a witch hunt for his own political gain.

They put on a circus of horrors. If they said a thing was true, in their minds, it became true.

Think about it. Didn’t Nancy Pelosi guarantee it would be a bipartisan vote to impeach?  She knew it would never happen.

Not a single Republican member of the House of Representatives voted to impeach. The only bipartisan votes that were cast were cast by Republicans and Democrats who voted ‘no’.

And remember how Nancy said, “We’ve got to get this over with as fast as possible!” But now, suddenly, she has all the time in the world. Why? Because all she wanted was a photo-op impeachment. Or maybe she is desperately trying to buy time so she can find some kind of charge that will stick, or any real proof of Presidential misconduct.

To get the optic they wanted, they broke every rule they needed to break. It was the Kavanaugh confirmation all over again. And now you can declare someone guilty by accusation not evidence.  They have flipped American jurisprudence upside down so that someone can be found guilty until proven innocent. They will even shut down the process if there’s even a chance the other side might prove to be innocent.

Nancy has many reasons for keeping these bogus articles out of the Senate. A photo-op moment is all she is going to get. She must have known that from the start. She doesn’t dare let this go before the Senate because she knows they would eviscerate this ‘dog and pony show.’ The missing whistle-blower, the lack of evidence, the blatant lies and the hearsay testimony that falls so far short of any quid pro quo would instantly self-destruct. All the “witnesses” will be found to be mere phantoms.

Her only hope now is to continue the campaign to stoke up enough hatred for Donald Trump that mere facts no longer count.

As we now know, this savage viciousness was planned before Trump entered the White House. Nancy started the ground work for this circus of horrors 22 months ago. It was broadcast on CNN and MSNBC that if Trump won they would move to impeach. This had nothing to do with the Ukraine anymore than the Mueller investigation had anything to do with Russia.

Listen to me with your whole soul. I have never made a more important political observation than the one I am about to make:

The most dangerous person in America is not Nancy Pelosi—it is you if you don’t see or care about what they are doing to your country. No President should have been treated this way and no American should look the other way. They are doing this to all of us.

Now that we know this was nothing but a smear campaign, we also know why it is up to us to stop them.
