Donald Trump is working to improve the lives of those who hate him. He just kept his promise to put Brett Kanvanaugh on the Supreme Court and he is being hated for it. Ironically, this will make life better for women even though many on the left refuse to see it. He risks being hated, embraces the hate and keeps working for those who despise him. He is working to make life better for every demographic group that is calling for his removal and even his death.
Now humor me as I engage is some sarcasm:
-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. Because of him, the workplace is becoming family friendly with maternity leaves. Companies are giving women bonuses because of the strong economy. I can see why you hate him.
He got 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.
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. Environmentalists want to shut down all fossil fuels and create calamity for the rest of us—especially poor people. They remind me of the new-age midwives who want women to give birth cold-turkey just to feel all the pain.
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. I can see why you hate him.
He is working for poor Americans 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 inner-city 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 American refugees from violence—I can see why you loved Obama.
An overwhelming number of millennials lived in your parent’s basement under Obama. Now you don’t. He put way more energy into putting a man in the women’s restrooms than to 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? Yeah I see why you look down on Trump.
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. Again, I can see why you credit Obama for our current economic boom and you hate Trump.
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…”
When I began this blog, I could not see how it would succeed. It was so far ahead of the curb it terrified me. Total readership reached 4 million today.
My nerves were frazzled the first time I sat down to write something called a blog. I argued with God. I could not see how it would succeed. I knew there would be a firestorm over the things I was compelled to say. I was so right about the firestorm.
Now millions read the blog in virtually every nation of the world. Every day we are amazed at the impact of this little blog.
“Let me be the first to tell you”…that seems to be the theme of this little blog that could.
Check out this excerpt from the first time we spoke out years ago:
“The America we once knew has been taken away. It happened overnight. Because America has changed ministries must change the way that they relate to this new nation.” Today, that is a common theme but when I first said it friends backed off, doors closed, and we were told that youth would abandon our meetings. Instead, just the opposite happened–I mean about the youth.
When pastors were scared to death to speak…we did. Now we see many starting to confront these issues. In part, I know God used this blog to wake them up. Paul said, “and most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.” -Philippians 1: 14
This blog was one of the first to declare this among Spirit-filled people: “Government has become our national God and that race now means more to some Christians than their Bible beliefs. This new God is waging an incremental war on the Constitution. The New York Times once referred to the U.S. Constitution an evil document that we should give up on.”
This blog was one of the first to attack Obamacare as an assault on freedom of religion. “It forces Christian Institutions to violate their religious convictions. Cardinal Dolan the spiritual leader of the Archdiocese of New York calls it “an unwarranted, unprecedented radical intrusion. The Obama White House met with Cardinal Dolan and several Bishops met with the White House to talk. He said he was told to shut up and accept the mandate.'”
This blog was among the first to preach it is time for the people of God to speak out on the danger of gun control. 5 years before David Hogg we said, “Mass shootings have become the excuse to take away our guns. Obama wants absolute power. Mahatma Gandhi the great pacifist said, ‘Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.’ Thomas Jefferson and James Madison believed that the greatest threat to liberty was not foreign invasion or domestic unrest but rather a standing army and a militarized police force that had no fear of inflicting tyranny upon the people.”‘
Then we had the audacity to attack Hollywood when many celebrity pastors were schmoozing with Hollywood. “If Government is our new God, Hollywood celebrities are our new pastors. Ben Stein asked, ‘Where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren’t allowed to worship God? There are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.’ Hollywood is the most powerful propaganda machine in history and it has declared war on our faith.”
Then we said, “Ministries must change how they relate to America.” 1 Samuel 10: 6 Says, “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.
Then we took a position so radical we couldn’t see church pastors in the rear view mirror:
“Here is what I believe the occasion demands: The Holy Spirit is saying we can publicly oppose government tyranny while still maintaining a loving witness. Acts 16: 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.” Paul had just led a jailer and several prisoners to Christ and now he turns around and exposes politicians who have broken the Roman Bill of Rights.”
“We must accept the fact that there is a new generation that has no Christian orientation. “And also all that generation was gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, who knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel.” Judges 2:10 “We must lay a new foundation of faith in America. We must preach the central doctrines of our faith. The Bible needs to set fire to our sermons.”
Then we said, “The big question now is what does the church do if Trump is president? In the next few blogs I will open my heart to you about the radical steps the church must take to seize this greatest soul winning opportunity in our lifetime. Once again, we must change the way we relate to government. I know we need fresh fire. Prayer, repentance and waiting for new orders are the keys for the American church…”
Now we reached 4 million readers and everyday our audience expands. Here’s my promise…no success will tame this blog. We will still be the first to tell you many things…including the fact that censorship is going to intensify so you should register to get this blog.

Soul-sucking disaster upon disaster, and yet America does not pray. But, I get why. The word of God says, “the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God…”1 Corinthians 2: 14. What I don’t get is how the American church can still think this is a game.
The world is on fire. Because of man, and nature—Earth is ready to explode. Meanwhile the church—like a party on the deck of the Titanic—pats herself on the back for her “big events.”
Nothing has stopped—or even slowed down—America’s depravity. We have spent more money, time, and talent than ever—yet the church never asks, why we keep doing things that don’t work?
When the church
-Feeds a sick nation, a sick gospel, that does not deliver from evil, and worse, makes the already converted weaker, we must think it is a game.
-When the enemy is no longer the works of Satan, but the unsuccessful life—we are playing a game. We must return to the Bible. The Bible needs to set fire to our sermons.
Many of my Spirit-filled acquaintances are also playing games. Facebook is like a Petri dish for Pentecostals. In one compressed medium, you witness the banal bacteria that excites Charismatics today. Witness the games:
-Titles like Prophet and Apostle are flung around indiscriminately. Every garish emotional experience is hawked as being from God. One “prophet” says he went back in time and visited Moses. Who of us has not scratched our heads at preachers, in ill-fitting jeans, live-streaming from a near-empty church, that they are the vessel of the hour?
– “conferences promise that you will get “a word from God” for a fee… as if the Holy Spirit was On Demand. Or they offer formulas to “activate” blessings. This is New Age philosophy. God is not a force to manipulate—He is an awesome person to be adored and obeyed. Gift arrive, as the Spirit wills, to hearts broken—emptied of self—for the lost, the poor, and the forsaken.
-Everything seems based on angelic visitations, dreams, visions and trips to heaven. Most of our time is spent on these “experiences” and not on rock-solid instruction from the Word of God.
I believe in dreams, prophecy, healing, angels and visions. But if they are from God they will drive us to the front line of the culture and not into emotional safe zones. “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty to the tearing down of strongholds.” -2 Corinthians 10:4 We are nowhere near strongholds because we think it’s a game.
Beloved, this is not a game. Christians toying with materialism, celebrity, alcohol, compromise and carnality spell doom for America. Google, Facebook, Apple, YouTube and the rest of Silicon Valley threaten to pull the plug on churches. Every day they inch closer to censorship. Will your zany videos matter if no one can see them?
Our preaching ricochets off a culture careening into indescribable debauchery. Soon it will illegal to preach the doctrines you are now ignoring. What a horror! Pastor you wake up one day with remorse over the truths you ignored—but now they’re banned.
Mario is there any hope? My hope in God’s fierce love for America. He will not let this nation go without a fierce fight. My hope is in some of the last people you’d expect.
My hope is in the discouraged preacher. Honest-to-God preachers who feel like fools when they see the runaway success of compromise. Psalm 73:12 says, “Behold, these are the ungodly, who are always at ease; They increase in riches. 13 Surely, I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocence. 14 For all day long I have been plagued, and chastened every morning.”
My hope is in those who chose to fail honestly rather than succeed artificially.
Are you struggling with decreasing numbers and falling finances, even as you present a Christ-centered, Bible based pulpit? God sees you! Hold on just a little longer. Fire is coming that will cause a stampede and you won’t know where to put the crowds.
My hope is in the Christian nobodies. Have you failed? Did man take away your pulpit? Get ready…your brokenness is a key to the fire of God in this hour. A nationwide hunger for reality is about to make shallowness obsolete.
Are you a teacher, business person, police officer or stay at home mom? Do you burn with a passion for your community? Get ready for vision and anointing right where you live!
The hour is so dangerous that God must bring down religious empires and promote others to great power and influence. Satan is also playing games. I believe that God—through the last people we expect—is about to teach Satan what war really looks like.
Mentioning God or giving Jesus credit for one’s success in a graduation speech does not violate the establishment clause. However, banning such speech clearly violates the constitution. Enough is enough! It is time to pay the price to end this madness.
It is insane that one or two people who claim to be offended can ban words from a speech. It is crazy that Christian clubs are forced to either disband or elect non-Christian officers. Someone’s hare-brained idea of “inclusivity” does not overrule the Bill of Rights.
But it is crazier than that. Campuses are drowning in double standards. Atheist clubs are not forced to elect Christian officers. And do you think for one moment a speech would be banned or a club ostracized if Christian students claimed to be offended?
The fact is, the overwhelming majority of speech and practice restrictions target Christians and conservatives. Even illegal immigrants have more rights on campus.
However, the most mind-boggling thing are the excuses Christian leaders use to justify their silence and inaction against something that is punishing the children in their congregations.
Timid leaders claim lawsuits would be a bad witness.
If defending your civil rights is a bad witness, then Paul the Apostle was the worst. Look carefully at these verses:
Acts 16: 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. 39 Then they came and pleaded with them and brought them out, and asked them to depart from the city.
Paul understood that these men were wrong and they needed to know they were wrong. Isn’t that precisely what Gospel preaching should do? Moreover, Paul knew the welfare of the Philippian church was involved. Pastors need to have the heart of Paul for the modern church.
We also need to understand that such bold confrontation is not only right—it is necessary. School administrators need to feel the heat of their illegal actions—that heat needs to be hotter than the hissy fits of a few atheists and God haters.
Not only this, but I am convinced God wants us to take up this cause. Detrick Bonhoeffer said “silence in the face of evil, is itself evil.”
The final excuse is the money. How can we afford this?
Legal fees for such massive action will be exorbitant. This is a hair-pulling excuse. Parents are shelling out over $50,000 a year on tuition. Multiply that times the number of Christian students are on campus and legal fees are a drop in the bucket.
And what about faith in our awesome heavenly Father? He will supply all of our needs!
Besides, all we need are key victories that set precedents in the courts.
The real question is not what is the cost of taking action…the question is what is the cost of remaining silent?
Except for a few Republicans with convictions, there really is no difference between Democrats and Republicans in Congress.
You saw Republicans pass an obscene budget—fully funding Planned Parenthood. They gave Democrats almost everything they wanted, punishing Trump in the process. There are Republicans in the deep state. And the deep state is not so deep.
Washington looks like there are two distinct world views colliding. But conservative and liberal are mostly labels for show. There is something deeper going one here.
Why is Trump so hated by both parties? They don’t hate him because of Stormy Daniels, or because they think he is a racist, or because of his tweets. It is a much darker motivation.
God used my devotions and reading of John 11—the story of Lazarus—to fully open my eyes. When this understanding came to me, my burden for our president intensified. I knew I had to write this to you so that we could agree together for his safety and for this evil to be exposed.
See if you see anything illuminating in these verses:
John 11: 45 Then many of the Jews who had come to Mary, and had seen the things Jesus did, believed in Him. 46 But some of them went away to the Pharisees and told them the things Jesus did. 47 Then the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered a council and said, “What shall we do? For this Man works many signs. 48 If we let Him alone like this, everyone will believe in Him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and nation.” Do you see it?
Notice this phrase: “the Romans will come and take away both our place and nation.” Their first concern was for their place, not the nation. That is exactly what is happening in Washington. They are more concerned about keeping their place than helping the nation.
That dear friend, is what both Democrats and Republicans are doing—they are fighting to keep their place. Not just in Congress but at the FBI, IRS and many other power centers. All of these groups wanted Hillary to win, because she was the queen of the swamp.
Right now you have the proof. Jeff Sessions has the power to end the witch hunt against Trump but he won’t. Mueller’s abuse of power could be called into account but he won’t be. Hillary should be in jail. Obama and his cohorts should be indicted. None of it happens because the politicians must keep their place.
Trump wants to do what works and what is best for America regardless of what side it offends and threatens. It’s called pragmatism. What enrages them is that it’s working. He is winning, and winning, and they are sick of his winning.
Once upon a time, a famous preacher and a famous atheist agreed to hold debates across the country. They didn’t tell the audience it was just a money making scheme. They publicly attacked each—took offerings for their causes—and at the end of the night they split the take. That is also what is happening in Washington.
-Barack Obama was given the Nobel Peace Prize for no reason. Now Trump has brought North and South Korea together. Do you think he will get the Nobel Prize for brokering the most amazing peace since Teddy Roosevelt? Never. Not even his own party will campaign for that.
Unemployment is at 3.9%. It is the lowest among blacks and Latinos in recent memory. His approval among likely voters is 51%. Do you think Trump will be praised? Never.
If you as a Christian can’t see the victories Trump is handing the church to have our voices heard, then you are blind. The next miracle is to get our government back and and see true revival. Trump is a bridge to all of that. The hand of God is upon him.
It is time to bombard heaven for the deep state to be exposed. We need to seek God like never before for special protection on Trump, Melania, the children, and the faithful few left in our government. Ask big. Ask now
Ephesians 3: 20 “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
I was minding my own business winning gang members, addicts, and college students to Christ. I loved my life. There was no way I wanted to get in this fray. God ordered me to warn the churches of impending disaster. It meant rebuking their violations of scripture, rampant immorality, and political heresy.
No way I wanted to do this. That’s why the life of Amos the prophet was a comfort to me. He said “I’m not a prophet nor the son of a prophet.” He was content in what he was doing. He was a successful herdsman. He was from Judah and the sins of a separate Kingdom didn’t matter to him.
He didn’t care about the conditions in Israel—he was from Judah. God recruited him for the larger war where disaster was looming. He didn’t pick the fight. God brought the fight to Amos.
God is warning us from the book of Amos. Here is where carnal preachers will point out that we don’t need the Old Testament. Yet, Paul said to Timothy, “Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching.” -1 Timothy 4:13. Since there was no New Testament, he could only have meant the Old Testament.
According to Amos, the central altar of God had been replaced by rogue altars. At these altars, pagan superstition mingled with Jewish tradition. They left the Bible out of their worship. God’s warning was clear: “tear them down or I will.”
Today, churches have built rogue altars. Worship leaders prance church stages in stripper outfits. They see nothing wrong with it. They even teach that the body is a beautiful thing and if you have bad thoughts, it’s in your mind. The Bible disagrees. Proverbs 7: 10 Says, “And there a woman met him, With the attire of a harlot, and a crafty heart.” The NIV says, “clothes of a prostitute.” The Word is saying if you wear the uniform, there’s got to be a reason.
We have pastors getting drunk with their staff after church. They began by justifying wine and then moved on to hard liquor. They justify it with grace teaching from beyond the Bible.
Both acts come from the same wickedness—abandoning the Bible. The Bible is gone as a standard. It is no longer regarded as the word of God.
Now, if you ever listened to anything I have ever said then get this: You are watching a moral civil war. A great army has come against us. They are not Russians. They are not Iranian. They are Americans.
They are a confederation of teachers who want to teach your child how to use sex toys—who want to get them to experiment with gender. They are politicians who believe the family must be removed to make way for a socialist society. They are actors, professors, authors, news casters, and a litany of anti-God/anti-American ideals.
They have already systemically changed California into a separate nation, and without a miracle will spread like cancer to the rest of the United States.
Why am I engaged in this fight? Because soul winning in America will be virtually impossible if our freedoms are destroyed.
The ideas and values that created America are under heavy attack. It is not just a physical war it is in the spirit world. Demonic engines drive this agenda. That makes the carnal church and her leaders special villains in the eyes of God.
Scantily clad women on stage and inebriated ministers are no longer just a matter of hypocrisy and carnality…it is blasphemy. When they—who are supposed to be leading the charge against darkness—instead, help advance the darkness, they are traitors. But doing it when it helps destroy our freedoms makes it high treason.
No one is better equipped to break the curse than the church. Conservatives can only do so much. Your favorite commentator can only do so much. Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson can only accomplish a part of what we need.
It is left to the Apostles, Prophets, Teachers, Pastors and Evangelists to take up the mantle for this hour. But, to our great horror…instead of purifying themselves for the battle of their life—instead of seeking holy fire to combat the evil—many are gorging on cheap grace, testing the limits of decency, and falling into dangerous addictions.
Hear the word of the Lord: Amos 3:13 Hear and testify against the house of Jacob,” Says the Lord God, the God of hosts, 14 “That in the day I punish Israel for their transgressions, I will also visit destruction on the altars of Bethel; And the horns of the altar shall be cut off And fall to the ground. 15 I will destroy the winter house along with the summer house; The houses of ivory shall perish, And the great houses shall have an end, Says the Lord.” Can this mean that lavish centers of worship can suddenly go missing? Can we afford to assume they cannot?
Two years later, an earthquake destroyed everything Amos targeted. This does not just apply to California, but to every church in America that has built idolatrous altars.
You are helping destroy the miracle of liberty that came from our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution.
But Isaiah said, “tell the righteous it shall be well with them.” This is the hour for the remnant who love God and seek His face to feel comfort. You will be spared.
In fact, at this moment, heaven is releasing power for miracles, words of prophetic might, and great resources to do the work of God. Those who have kept their integrity–and perhaps labored in obscurity not seeing results—will receive great power and multiplication.
For the rest there remains an ominous warning: In your carnality, you are one the greatest threats to freedom. Again, you are aiding and abetting the destruction of a great miracle—the miracle of liberty that came from our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution.
If the church will not rise up and speak…God will turn even nature against us to spare America. Matthew Henry said something chilling in his commentary on Amos: “If men will not destroy idolatrous altars, God will, and those with them that had them in veneration.”
