THE AMERICAN CHURCH IS STANDING AT THE RED SEA

While millions were watching on their TVs and devices, the host asked me, “What moment are we at in this country?” I answered, “The American church is at the Red Sea.”

Much of the American church believes this is a time of fear, despair, and profound disappointment. It is a time of dreadful uncertainty. It seems that the promises given to us by preachers have popped like so many balloons. Many regret standing with Trump. Others are abandoning their convictions in order to please a fallen culture. Still others are stunned and confused by the bizarre events unfolding every day.

Divisions spread like earthquake faults. Many are pointing fingers. It would seem that we need someone to arise and bring us a soothing balm. Someone to console us. But the fact is, we need a swift kick.

The Israelites were backed up against an impenetrable sea. A vast army, blind with revenge, was bearing down on them.  Were they right to fear and be dismayed? Were they right to rail against Moses and remind him that they never wanted this adventure? “Is this not the word that we told you in Egypt, saying, ‘Let us alone that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than that we should die in the wilderness” (Exodus 14:12).

Isn’t this what we are hearing right now? Some are saying, “It’s better for us to serve Biden than to hold on to this embarrassing hope.”

Moses tried to rally the people: “And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace”” (Exodus 14:13-14).

But God found fault with Moses’ behavior. It was not a time to console, but to command: “And the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward”” (vs. 15).

Why is God taking a harsh tone with Moses? It is because their fear made no sense. It is because their statement that slavery was better, is blasphemy.

These people had witnessed 9 astounding miracles in Egypt. The simple progression of God’s acts should have been more than enough proof that another miracle was inevitable.

Do you mean to tell me you have forgotten the progression of miracles that have brought us to this point? Cyrus came to the White House. The collusion attack failed. The Obama-led FBI failed to run Trump out of office. The economy boomed despite the attempts of every Democrat, every media, and Big Tech undermining him. Victory upon victory led us to a golden age for the middle class and the church. And what? God has abandoned us now? Why would that be?

Now we are at the Red Sea. And, just as the Israelites should have expected a miracle, so should we.

The uncovering of the vast corruption, evil and manipulation perpetrated by Biden and the Democrat-controlled States, would never have happened unless God was behind it. The Lord revealed a threat to our freedom that was lodged in our foundation like a time bomb.

Wake up, Church! This is a test. The images of dread and fear are a test. The feeling that immorality will swallow our nation whole is a test. The draining depression brought on by the election is a test.

Think back to the time when King Jehoshaphat turned a hopeless situation into proof that a miracle was coming. Read carefully what he said: “And now, here are the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir—whom You would not let Israel invade when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them and did not destroy them; here they are, rewarding us by coming to throw us out of Your possession which You have given us to inherit. O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You” (2 Chronicles 20: 10-12). 

Let’s look at the lessons in these words for us right now. Jehoshaphat reminded God: A great army is coming to take away something You gave us. Then the king reminded the enemy: How is that going to work? Do you really want to mess with land that God gave to us Jews?

In the same way, America is a miracle. We did not come about by our own wits or our own greatness. Do you believe that voting machines from Venezuela or China are going to dislodge the home of the brave and the land of the free without God stepping in?

Next, the king said to Jehovah, “Will You not judge them?” Great evil will not go unpunished. Of course not!

Finally, Jehoshaphat said to God, “We have no wisdom for this and we have no might against them, but we are looking to You.” Similarly, this is also a test! God wants the glory. God will bring this wickedness down by His own hand.

We found out that too many American Christians are flat out wimps. Wimpy worship, wimpy convictions, wimpy prayers, and wimpy loyalty to God. But the remnant found out something different.

Their hope is in God and nothing else. They are ready to obey their marching orders. Preachers should not be cowards and traitors. They need to tell the people to move forward. We should be outraged that our election was stolen and our votes were nullified. Don’t you get it? We are not Venezuela—we are America!

We should be moving forward. We should not be debating how much we can do—we should be doing all we can. Get rid of that lie that we should appear polite and compliant in the face of this vile coup. We need to file every lawsuit necessary to expose every villain involved in this crime—even if they are Republicans.

It is not wrong to reject Biden. It is not wrong to exhaust every legal option. It is not wrong to make all the noise we need to make in order to take down this monster. God wants to open the Red Sea before us. He just wants us to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and move forward into our miracle!

This is a message to those who support Mario Murillo’s message to America.

FRESNO CONTINUES TO AMAZE

We have done tent crusades where many have been saved. We have done tent crusades where glorious healings have taken place. We have done tent meetings that have had great impact on the community. But what is amazing about this one, is that it is all of those things combined, and more.

The message tonight focused on these verses: 2 Timothy 3:1-5, “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!”

My sermon exposes how demonic power is perverting people and creating all the pain and misery of these last days. I drive home the point that so much of the torment that people are facing is caused by satanic power. This simple and raw sermon has a deep impact on the audience. All of us are stunned by how deeply sinners are convicted by the Holy Spirit.

The message is not a soothing sales-job that tickles ears. But that does not matter to these precious souls. They do not hesitate to repent.
I opened the altar for lost souls to come to Jesus. They start coming from everywhere to give themselves to the King of Kings. Those who look on rejoice with extraordinary joy. They know this is a sign that God is visiting their city.
The newly saved are led outside the tent. A special grace comes on our 200 volunteers who are out there praying and counseling each life that is being transformed. Then, to my great delight, they are coming back in the tent to experience their first miracle service.
Now our cameras catch the moment a man on the front row hears a word of knowledge about the three life-threatening sicknesses in his body. He is feeling cancer, lung, and heart disease leave his body. The power of God is so great he collapses to his knees. He is sobbing out of sheer gratitude.

Another man in the back receives the word of the Spirit regarding the diabetes, heart disease, and spine disorder he has suffered from. He too falls to his knees beneath the weight of glory.

These two healings are all it takes to touch off a storm of miracles across the tent. Only God knows how many were healed.

Why are all these things amazing? Because: It is an overflow crowd on a Tuesday night. It is old-time preaching on sin and hell in a time when we always hear that this kind of preaching will not work.  It is amazing because these confirmed signs and wonders are happening in a time of quarantines.

By the end of the evening I am looking out at an army—a great army, with a zeal to obey God that I have not seen. I feel caution about what I am about to ask them to do, for I know they will do it. “Get your friends and loved ones and bring them tomorrow night. We will have time to rest after this week. For now, we must pull out all the stops and run with this revival.” 

I know they will do it. I know this is a true move of God. I know that Fresno will continue to amaze.

All glory to God!

CHRISTIAN APATHY USED TO BE HARMLESS NOT ANYMORE. TODAY, IT IS A TOTAL DISASTER

The Democrat Party has made America miserable. They have done it with a misery unknown and unequalled in our history. They have caused great misery, both to our institutions and to our people.  They have made everyday life miserable. They have made all the races miserable. They have made professional sports miserable. They have made education miserable. They have made relationships miserable. They have made the elderly, the middle aged, the young, and even children miserable.

Once anything of beauty is touched by the “woke” and the progressive, it is instantly drained of color. Words like honesty, decency, love and virtue have been beaten to a pulp by people who are always offended and who literally see everything as racist.

They have destroyed Minneapolis, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, New York City —and Gavin Newsom is doing one better by working to destroy an entire state. Antifa is the armed militia of the Democrat Party.

Every solution they have forced on us is worse than the problem it was meant to solve. Every word out of their mouth is a euphemism that masks a dark agenda and the next debacle they are planning.

They have even found a way to out-kill the virus. Their shutdown has created an epidemic of suicide, drug addiction and depression. Their war on the police has unleashed a crime wave that is turning urban areas into murder capitols and uninhabitable torture chambers.

Democrats are masters of evading responsibility. They could crawl through a barrel of pretzels and not touch a single one. They blame Trump for the deplorable conditions that exist in cities they utterly control and have always controlled.

The Democrat Party has left us with no choice but to absolutely repudiate them. There is no doubt about this. This is an inescapable fact to all moral and sensible people, but, somehow, Christians are in denial of all these obvious facts.

Many Christians struggle to admit evil. Not only that, they can’t see their natural duty to stop America’s destruction. If what the Left is now doing does not shake you out of complacency, I doubt anything will.

Perhaps you don’t want to get involved. Perhaps you are using tired religious excuses, such as hiding behind a false interpretation of Romans 13. Maybe you are convinced that this maelstrom of evil will simply go away on its own if you pretend it doesn’t exist and just sing louder.

You are a pastor who is torn about taking a stand in this war because you may lose your church. But if you don’t act, there won’t be any church left for you to save. There is no viable excuse for staying out of this battle. There is nothing heroic about avoiding your sacred duty in this time of national destruction.

In Psalm 11:3 there is a verse that some translations render, “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Which makes it sound like: ‘The foundations have been destroyed, so the righteous might as well give up, there is nothing they can do.’ But the Hebrew, according to several commentaries, says something different: “If the foundations be destroyed, what will become of the building/structure?”

In this current crisis, the foundations that are being destroyed are the American system of government, law and order, Capitalism, and the Constitutional protection of the freedom of religion. The Psalmist is saying to us in our day, “When those foundations are gone, what will be the end of the entire structure?”

The structure is America. Surely this nation is worth fighting for. Many have bled and died for our freedoms. There may have been a day when American Christians could comfortably live in apathy—an apathy that seemed harmless—but not anymore. Today, it is a formula for guaranteed disaster.

GAVIN AND DEMS CLOSE CHURCHES BUT LEAVE OPEN A BIG CAUSE OF THE SPIKE

This closure of churches is pure politics. Let me say—for all those who need to hear it—I certainly do not wish to spread the coronavirus. I am in favor of all rational and reasonable measures to keep people safe—but there is no evidence that closing churches will keep people safe. In fact, keeping churches closed is both foolish and dangerous.

On the other hand, there is evidence that allowing masses of people to march for BLM, shoulder to shoulder in the streets is dangerous and has spread the virus far more than people worshiping in church. Common sense tells you that. Millions on a rampage, compared to handfuls in worship? Tightly packed crowds shouting, with many not wearing masks? Give me a break.

Pictured below is a rally in California. This rally didn’t infect anyone? Why are these rallies still legal and church is illegal?

Isn’t it funny how those who want churches closed are the same people who hated churches way before all of this?

In her article for The Federalist, entitled, NYT: Blame Churches, Not Riots, For Rise In Positive Covid-19 Tests, Holly Scheer wrote,It’s disingenuous to pin the caseloads of these states on churches, ignoring that contact tracing connects dozens of cases in Texas to churches, for example, out of their 230,000 and counting total cases. It is divisive. It’s fake news. A tiny fraction of a percent can’t responsibly or seriously be described as a “major source” of transmission. And it’s a total distraction from what drives the predominance of coronavirus infections.”

The New York Times said that churches are a major source of COVID, but how bad is it really? Here’s their quote: “More than 650 coronavirus cases have been linked to nearly 40 churches and religious events across the United States since the beginning of the pandemic, with many of them erupting over the last month as Americans resumed their pre-pandemic activities, according to a New York Times database.”

They said there were, “Over 650 cases.” Where? In New York? No, 650 in the entire nation, since the beginning of the pandemic! But that is fewer than half the cases in just Florida alone that have been linked directly to travel from New York to Florida.

 

On the other hand, the New York Times is not reporting word one—nothing, zero, zilch—on how many got sick at the protest marches that included millions of people. We also are told not to ask about infection rate spikes in Border States that are coming from Mexico.

The protests, looting, and desecration of monuments is a protected class of the Trump-hating Left. The reason church is singled out is even clearer. Evangelicals are more likely to vote for Trump. That’s why we are being singled out. But it gets darker than that.

Isn’t it obvious to you that the same people who want churches closed, have hated churches all along? They hated church before Trump was on the radar. It is what health insurance companies call a “preexisting condition.”

The final thing they refuse to talk about is how many people are dying from suicide, addiction, and despair due to this pandemic. It is completely dishonest for them to claim they are trying to save lives, while at the same time, they kill hope and ban faith. Neighborhoods are being decimated because of lawlessness. Closing churches adds to the lawlessness. Evil goes unchallenged in neighborhoods because churches are closed. People are dying because churches are closed.

Bars, health clubs, and malls do not impact people in any manner similar to the way churches do. The fellowship, the comfort, the Word of God, and the worship are essential in this hour.

Do you know what New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said when confronted with the double standard of church versus marches? He said the marches were “too important to stop.” Get that? He thinks it is okay for people to risk getting sick at an “important” event like a BLM march, but not okay to risk getting sick by worshiping together in church—even though the risk is much, much greater for the protesters!

California needs to hear the Gospel—needs to feel the presence of God—hear anointed worship and preaching.

The only hope for America is for God and believers to convince our leaders that the danger of going to church is nothing compared to the ruthless, wicked, agenda of the Marxists, ANTIFA, and the Democrat Party. It is time for the silent majority to make our voices heard!

 

 

 

 

P.S. A Special message to all of our friends from Mario Murillo Ministries

Why do we offer you books? It is certainly not to blunt the impact of the message you just read. In fact, these books reinforce the message we are trying to spread. More on that in a moment.  So, why do we offer them to you?
When the pandemic closed our tent crusades, church meetings and rallies, the Holy Spirit commanded Mario to keep our staff on at full salary, and trust Him. He obeyed and God has provided. But another thing the Holy Spirit grants are wise ideas. And we needed one. That is when the War Chest Collection was born.
If you look at the page you will see no advertising. And there never will be. And if you get our newsletter you will see that we have stopped raising money for projects we can’t do right now. But even that was not good enough for us.
In this pandemic we needed something that was truly a win-win situation. We prayed for something that would help the people, and us, that was not a garish fund raiser.
Then, we remembered how John Wesley taught his young preachers to always bring books with them that would help the people. Why not then, at a time when people have time to read, offer them something that will empower them and at the same time keep us strong and ready to go as soon as the door reopens?  
We are amazed at the impact of Vessels of Fire and Glory. That book is not just blessing people—it has started a movement! Critical Mass remains required reading in many Christian schools and has never stopped influencing people who pray for revival. Edgewise offers wisdom for living in the last days. Together they provide you with solid, hard-hitting and encouraging truth. Not a bad thing just now.
The War Chest Collection has handed the enemy a double defeat by empowering God’s people and keeping us strong and ready.
Thank you for listening and get your War Chest Collection today. Turn your summer read into equipping, encouragement, and fire! We are all going to come out of this mightier than ever!   -Mario Murillo Ministries

The War Chest Collection. This is now the bestselling compilation in our entire history! You get a signed copy of Mario’s newest book Vessels of Fire and Glory, plus the acclaimed classic on revival Critical Mass, and Mario’s book about living in the last days Edgewise.

Today this blog reached a lifetime total of 10 Million views

Today, Mario Murillo’s blog reached a lifetime total of 10 million views. That is huge by any standard, but the real story is much bigger. And the only reason we are telling you about this, is to give God all the glory for what is being accomplished through this humble little blog.
To begin with, no one knows exactly how many have read the blog. Ten million is the number that the left-leaning social media has reported to have read the blog. The real number is doubtless far greater.
We know that certain subjects are routinely and hilariously shadow-banned. Shadow-banning is the act of blocking or partially blocking a user or their content from an online community, such that it will not be readily apparent to the user that they have been banned.
Another form of banning is to throttle the number of views. We don’t know how this is done or who is doing it. The way we notice it is this: We see on Facebook that our blog has been shared 1,000 times, but it shows up on our site as if only 700 people read it. Hilarious!
Only God knows how many have read the blog or would have read it without these restraints.  If you have tried to share this blog, then you know the games that social media plays with it, all the time.
 This blog began under the Obama administration. At that time, it was taboo for preachers to rebuke and declare the Word of God to politicians. In fact, many churches closed their doors to Mario because of his daily exposure of the overt wickedness of the Left, and his continual warnings about the silence of the church.
Fast forward to today and you can see the shift. Preachers are openly declaring righteousness and taking stands against leftist socialism. We believe this blog has played a part in that shift.  Paul said, “And most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much bolder to speak the word without fear” (Philippians 1:14).
From here, we will move on to even greater breakthroughs. This blog will not be tamed and we have certainly seen God unchain it, again and again. His counsel will go forth to the nations!
Register to get the blog sent directly to your email. We expect social media to start blocking it again as the election gets closer.
Finally, we thank God for all of you who have borne the battle with us and helped make this blog the amazing force it is today. By His grace, our blog will continue to be a powerful voice for the kingdom of God, until the day Jesus returns.
THANK YOU!

CHRISTIANS WHO BLINDLY PUT THEIR TRUST IN STATE OFFICIALS ARE GOING TO GET BURNED

The time is soon coming when you must decide: should you open your church or business? To settle the question in your heart, you must peel back the layers of lies. There are wrong reasons for reopening, and wrong reasons for remaining closed. But if either reason is based on the “wisdom” of the officials in your State, you are going to get burned.

God can speak to a pastor to keep his church closed, but it had better be God speaking and not just the fear of man. We see ministers every day, soothingly expounding online how they ‘don’t want to offend.’  They tell you in super-spiritual terms that they ‘want to send the right signal to Governors’—but, if that’s their goal, they need to wake up.

People like California Governor Gavin Newsom are unmoved by your gesture. Their malice toward you predated the shutdown, and it will continue long after the shutdown. Compliant churches will have no effect on either the attitude or the plans of leftist Governors. You will get zero, zilch, nada, from them for being compliant, and staying closed.

If pleasing your State government—and not God—is your reason for staying closed, you’re wasting your time. Your reason must be God, and only God.

And, just as importantly, if your motive for reopening a church or business is to thumb your nose at politicians just to prove a point, you will also be burned. You must reopen because your conscience, convictions, and your God have moved you to action. My hope is that after you read my message, it will be clearer to you what action you should take.

Here are things that must not factor into your decision:

The state knows best:

 They lied about their goals. They told us they would reopen when the infection rate flattened. Now, without any rational explanation, they moved the goal post and ordered us to stay closed until there is a cure. Look at me: as is true for so many other diseases, we may never find a cure. For instance, there is no “cure” for the flu, and it kills 40,000 people every year. So, does that mean churches, businesses and schools will stay closed forever? State officials are showing you proof positive that they are making this up as they go along. They are in no position to tell us what we must do.

Exaggeration:

Most of what we hear from the panic-stricken Left—to put it kindly—is an exaggeration. When the State of Georgia reopened, the Left flew into a rage, promising us that thousands would die in a fresh infection. Several days later, we have seen that their claims never transpired and Georgia was right to take a realistic view of the coronavirus. And today, New York’s Governor Cuomo dropped a hint that schools ‘may not be able to open in September,’ which looks very much like a kind of ‘toe in the water’ to test public outrage.

Our witness:

Another argument some pastors make in defense of staying closed, is that it is a bad witness to the community. Once again, they are short-sighted. Millions of Americans, and an increasing number every day, are convinced that we are now a police state. They see the virus as an excuse for a leftist, socialist dictatorship to take over and destroy their livelihood.  So, let me ask you something? How do you think the churches who facilitated state sponsored destruction of their freedoms now appear to their neighbors?  How will they look to people who lost everything they have worked for to this tyranny?

The courts:

The next fact that should show you the truth, is what the courts are doing. They are striking down some of the shutdown orders of certain States, and several Federal Courts agree that States have seized power over churches and businesses illegally. What is most important to you, is not just that the courts correctly sided with the Constitution, but that they also factored in the best medical information available to weigh the risks.

Hatred of Trump:

Here’s the litmus test for reopening or not reopening: Find me one single avid fan of America remaining closed who does not also hate Trump. Everyone knows that these Governors want to destroy Trump and if that means they have to destroy the economy, so be it.

Think of that for a moment. We have people in State Houses who would rather see thousands of people die than have Trump reelected…and you are trying to curry their favor by agreeing to kill your business or permanently damage your congregation? Sorry, there’s no way God is in that—and you are going to get burned.

Why would you trust state officials that the courts, and a growing majority of Americans, consider criminals? The church is the last hope of America, and we must not give in to the plans of those who hate us.

“Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law, have fellowship with You? They gather together against the life of the righteous, and condemn innocent blood. But the Lord has been my defense, and my God is the rock of my refuge. He has brought upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; the Lord our God shall cut them off” (Psalm 94:20).

THE BIG STORY

Today, Mario Murillo’s blog reached a lifetime total of 9 million views. That is huge by any standard, but the real story is much bigger. And the only reason we are telling you about this, is to give God all the glory for what is being accomplished through this humble little blog.

ABORTION CLINICS ARE OPEN WHILE CHURCHES ARE CLOSED

I know where to find thousands of doctors to help with the pandemic: shut down all the abortion clinics. Close Planned Parenthood’s death rooms. Ask the physicians to save lives, instead of taking them. Tell them to report for duty at the hospitals that are overwhelmed.
If that seems sickeningly obvious, it’s because a pandemic not only exposes national decadence, it displays it with shocking clarity.
Speaking of decadence, consider the argument Planned Parenthood made for staying open. To defend staying open, they said that abortions are ‘not elective surgery.’ Wait. What? Abortions are an involuntary procedure? What Planned Parenthood is saying is that now, they are beyond pro-choice. They are now, no choice.
What was truly shameful was the federal court’s opinion. By letting Planned Parenthood stay open, they made a shameful value judgment. They defended the constitutional rights of one group, but overruled the constitutional rights of another.
They did it by highlighting another national sin: America values abortion over faith.
The court knew very well that the government had no right to close churches. They decided to rule that public safety nullifies constitutional rights. Because of their bias—and not because of justice—they overstated the danger open churches pose to congregants, and downplayed the danger that open abortion clinics pose to the unborn.
Can churches be open safely? Not when the pastor does it to tempt God, in a presumptuous manner, like snake handling. But if they carefully abide by every health guideline, the way Walmart and many stores are doing it, then, yes, they can and should be open.
Texas among other states came to this realization. Churches are essential to a community.  Churches provide a necessary healing gift. They stop suicides. They deliver people from addictions. Ministries rescue people from dying every day. Only God knows how many have died since drug programs and outreach ministries have been shut down.
Doctor, you took an oath to ‘do no harm.’  I can’t imagine a more obvious harm than to perform abortions. But especially, during a pandemic, when thousands are screaming for medical help. May God forgive us!
Is it possible this scourge will not end until we repent according 2 Chronicles 7: 14?  Do we dare assume otherwise? When we who are called by His name, not only humble ourselves and pray, but turn from our wicked ways, then the Lord will hear from heaven and heal our land.  Join us, as we pray and repent for the sins of America!

A terrifying collision with the Glory of God

Many who were once vibrant soldiers, today languish in a shadow existence.  They are out of church, disconnected from their former passion and sick in body and soul.  The ongoing political debate and demonstrations have only added to the crisis. The conflicting opinions of church leaders leave the army of God baffled and vulnerable.

The problem is, with all the anger, division, loud perversion, and persecution, Christian teachers find their instructive messages woefully inadequate.  What happened?  The answer is…life.   Life happened, and it is gripping believers with fear.  This is a new kind of fear coming from the screaming villains, who now have an out-sized influence.

The church in America needs a terrifying collision with the Glory of God.  But right now we are awash in ‘advisory sermons.’ The titles are similar and predictable: “How to handle fear, uncertainty, finances, relationships, marriage, and children.”   We are drowning in whiteboards, blackboards, statistics, PowerPoint Presentations, props, and illustrations.

We’ve been taught to death. We need to pour gasoline on what we’ve been taught and light it on fire.

Happy-face sermons do not give believers the power they need to overcome in a time like this.   What is happening now runs clear off the over-optimistic maps drawn in pulpits. Tragedies can uproot neat formulas like a palm tree in a hurricane.   Hip theories will collapse like a brick house in an earthquake.

Leaders have brought a lot of this on themselves.  The culture has changed dramatically in the last few months—but the American pulpit has not.

Why are we surprised that modern believers suddenly need more?  The power that could answer a thousand questions and extinguish a myriad of personality ills has been ushered out of church.

Closing the altars, ordering people to tone it down, and focusing on recovery programs indeed brought in a crowd.  However, what is the end game if the crowd leaves as weak as they came—and in some cases weaker—without power to face the culture of a nation gone berserk?

Paul’s cure was simple: an undeniable encounter with the fire of God…”that your faith should not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. (1 Corinthians 2:5).

The answer for conquering fear today is to burn it out!  Just for shock value, I’ll use this phrase…perfect love casts out fear but so does perfect fear.  No doubt many will think it is crazy to take a wonderful verse like 1 John 4:18: “perfect love casts out fear” and mess it up.  But I am not messing it up I am fulfilling it!

PERFECT FEAR DOES INDEED CAST OUT FEAR!  We have downplayed and even banned something that Christians desperately need…A TERRIFYING COLLISION WITH THE GLORY OF GOD.

Go back with me to 758 B.C.  Isaiah the prophet enters the Temple in fear for his life.  The tide of public opinion has turned against him.  The death of his friend and protector King Uzziah has put the finishing touch on 5 years of ministry that seemingly had no impact on Israel, and Isaiah felt like he had just been treading water.  His despair is now complete. He enters the Temple looking for comfort from God.

He kneels in prayer, resting his elbows on the altar seeking solace from the storm. Instead, the building starts quaking, knocking his elbows so that he is now punching himself in the face.

He looks up and sees Seraphim:  Angels of fire, fire that burns hotter and brighter than any sun. They tower over him from either end of the altar.

Their voices roar, vibrate, boom and dislodge the mighty beams of the Temple!  “HOLY, HOLY, HOLY, IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.  THE WHOLE EARTH IS FILLED WITH HIS GLORY!”  Back and forth, again and again, they blast this mighty proclamation until Isaiah could not bear the fright!

The mighty God Himself stands before Isaiah unfurling the indescribable train of His Glory!  The prophet convulses beneath the weight of glory.  From the very core of his being came an all-consuming cry… “WOE IS ME!”

The startling effect of the Glory of God—a wonder-working fear—overrules human fear.

No threat matters now.   This demonstration of Glory conquered his suffering.   Isn’t this exactly what Paul meant?: “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us” (Romans 8:18).   Of course, Paul is speaking of the final GLORY…but it is a part of our birthright to have earthly collisions of glory: “But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all” (1 Corinthians 12:7).  An overarching, fear-destroying encounter is the legacy of every child of God.

“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all.”

The twelve disciples were in a boat out on the Sea of Galilee, gripped by fear of the storm.  But when Jesus rebuked the storm their fear of drowning was replaced with an awestruck wonder. They exclaimed: “what manner of man is this that even the wind and the sea obey Him!?”

We are told that General Patton won battles because his men were more afraid of him than the Germans.   Again, ours is not a negative fear, but the holy awe born from the manifestation of God’s glory.

This truth reinforces the fact that “Perfect love casts out Fear” because love disciplines, love gives us what we need… and what we need today is not a subtle pat on the head.   We need a fear-killing encounter!  Solomon said in Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.”

Why are we blocking people from experiencing the fire of God?  Why would we keep this miracle from people?   I am talking about fire—fire that keeps them from the evil one—fire that forges a reverence, and turns them into your best soldiers

We should have made room and time for people to be so filled to overflowing with the Holy Spirit and fire that they are equipped to prevail against all enemies.  If we had, we would not be nursing hordes of Christians on life support. We would have an unstoppable army!

There is still time to reverse course.  If you have never been drenched by God then obey Him and seek to be overcome by His Glory.  If you have received a filling of the Holy Spirit in the past, now is the time to receive FRESH FIRE!

JUST TO STOP HIS REELECTION

Jesus compared the generation of men who hated Him, to children playing in the streets:

“But to what shall I liken this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to their companions, and saying:

‘We played the flute for you, but you did not dance;
We mourned to you, but you did not lament.’

“For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’ The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Behold, a glutton and a wine-drinker, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’” (Matthew 11:16-20)

Jesus accused them of manipulating facts, because their attitude was: ‘We will tell you what is real. If you don’t eat or drink you have a demon. If you do, you are a glutton and a drunk. We are always right and you are always wrong.’

When the nation should be rallying together, setting aside politics, and backing the President, the hate- filled Left can’t help itself.  They want us to dance when they say dance and to mourn when they say mourn. Their knee-jerk reaction is to say Trump is wrong, no matter what he does. Perhaps there is no greater oxymoronic phrase than ‘leftist-logic’, but here goes.

The ‘Leftist logic’ of Comey and Mueller says: Russia manipulated an election with only 150 thousand dollars worth of Facebook ads, while Mike Bloomberg couldn’t do it with spending just under one billion dollars!

Now, for some even crazier ‘leftist logic’: According to Christina Wilkie, who writes for CNBC, “In just over a month, three pillars underpinning (Trump’s) argument for reelection have all collapsed”: https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/19/coronavirus-crisis-trumps-argument-for-reelection-is-collapsing.html

Her first ‘pillar’:

“President Trump’s re-election campaign was designed under the premise that the economy would be strong through November, but that’s not true anymore.” -CW

Wow. When I read that, I thought, “How much of the loony-left-Kool-Aid must one drink in order to make such a statement, let alone publish it?” Wilkie apparently has a crystal ball, and can see into the future, all the way to November, and knows what the economy will be like then!

The Left never gives Trump credit for the economy. When it is doing great, they believe he has nothing to do with it. But if it goes bad—for any reason, even the most insane reason—it is his fault. They believe America will punish Trump for what the coronavirus alone did, and forget everything else he has done.

Sorry, Christina! But no fair-minded person can possibly blame Trump for coronavirus damage to the economy.  That is just plain nuts. There is a case to be made for blaming a former President, but we will get to that later. The worst part is what Wilkie is saying about Americans. She is degrading Americans by saying they are so unfair and ignorant that they would change their mind about Trump because coronavirus hit our economy.  If an asteroid hit the earth, Christina would blame Trump for it.

Second ‘pillar’:

“Trump also planned to make socialism a central focus of his attacks. But without Bernie Sanders to run against, this argument becomes a lot less potent.” – CW

This jaw-dropping claim makes it difficult to know where to begin.

At least, Bernie is able to frame and finish a sentence. And unlike Joe Biden, Bernie does not say things like, “150 million Americans died from gun violence since 2009” or, “We must re-elect Trump” or, “When I am elected in 2 years” or scream, “You’re full of s***!”

Christina is wrong. Socialism is still in play. Biden has already veered left and will take up the socialist mantra to try and win Bernie voters. In a debate with Bernie Sanders, Trump would have had to combat a true socialist and make the case for capitalism.  With Biden, all Trump has to do is let Joe talk about it.

There is no doubt that Biden is going to be the nominee, because when the Democrat clown car careened out of control, he was the only one who didn’t fly out. Not only that, but it doesn’t look like veering Left will work for Biden, because ‘Berners’ have said they are so angry, they would rather vote for Trump than Biden. We can only hope…

And thirdly, according to Christina:

“Trump campaigned on “draining the swamp” of big government. Now he wants Americans to trust in big government to fight coronavirus and save the economy.” –CW

Listen to that! If Trump didn’t bail out hard-working Americans, the Left would use it against him in the election. Now they want to use it against him that he did help them! Do you see how that works?

And finally, there’s the idea that Trump didn’t act on the coronavirus crisis soon enough. Really? The fact is that Trump started on the prevention of this virus when he was running for office in 2016. He told us China, not Russia, was the greatest threat. He told us that we were too dependent on China. He wanted to slam the door on their influence over us.

Here’s the Left again: “You didn’t act soon enough to stop the virus. And stop picking on China.” Again, do you see how that works?  They still want it both ways

 

Then they called Trump a racist for calling it the ‘Chinese Virus.’ How hypocritical is it for the Left to defend the most racist nation on earth by accusing Trump of being racist when he makes a totally scientific observation: The virus came from China. Many of the leftist news outlets were calling it the ‘China Virus’ months ago, and it was apparently ok then, and wasn’t racist—until Donald Trump started calling it that… See how it works?

It was Obama who defended China and expanded our reliance on China. The Obama administration is why we are at the mercy of China for our pharmaceutical and medical supplies. Want to know why we are short on tests and masks? Hello!

Biden is defending China right now!  China! The nation that got so mad at us for stating the obvious fact that this pandemic started there, that they threatened to kill Americans by cutting off medicine to us.

While America is trying to come together to fight a common enemy, the Left hates Trump too much to try and help him. Please, help him, by draining the swamp in November! Take back the House, make conservatives a strong majority in the Senate, turn blue States red, and re-elect the President that God gave us for just such a time as this!
