THE LEFT

Global warming, Russian collusion, White Supremacy/Racism—the trifecta of the Left—the constant drum beat of the “woke.” Always screamed about very loudly, but never defended by rational conversation or facts. Their endless plaintive cry, body language, and screeching confirm the sad, sad truth that emotion rules over substance and logical reason.

Global warming.  The myth of Climate Change took a hit today from an unlikely source: Joel N. Myers, Founder and CEO of AccuWeather.com.  He stated, “There is no evidence so far that extreme heat waves are becoming more common because of climate change, especially when you consider how many heat waves occurred historically compared to recent history.”

Hysterics are the order of the day for the Left, prompting Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to say that the world will end in 12 years.  Yet, the Loony Left wants to prosecute anyone who doubts their weather claims. They want oppressive policies that would limit freedom and even imprison detractors of their theories. They are not trying to fix anything, they are trying to take total control through myths.

They will fly their polluting jets to conferences that conclude that you are a vile person for not changing your lifestyle and limiting your carbon footprint.

Russia collusion. The people who live in the districts that Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, and Gerrold Nadler represent must not need better schools, more jobs, clean water, stronger law enforcement or anything you normally elect someone to work for. These political hacks are literally doing nothing but chasing a hoax. They are deranged in their wish for Trump to be impeached. How the people in these districts can tolerate this is truly dumbfounding. I say again, they are doing nothing for you, while they chase a crime that simply doesn’t exist.  25 months and 25 million dollars later, there is no collusion. Yet, these three demand further investigations.

White Supremacy: They say White Supremacy fuels the mass shootings.  Let’s look at what the media will not tell you. Connor Betts gunned down nine people and injured dozens more in Dayton, Ohio, on Sunday, and this warped loner declares himself, in his notebook, to be a servant of ‘evil incarnate’ and rants about everything from schizophrenia to satanic rituals and massacres.

The pages read, in part: “I am the servant of the serpent evil incarnate, flesh consumer, light destroyer, fueled by hate, rage (is) my strength, distrust (is) my shield.”

But, this mass murderer also supported Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and ANTIFA. The media buries the news of a left-wing mass shooter because it doesn’t advance the narrative of White Supremacy and who Trump supporters really are.

Then, the Left cites economic injustice and poverty in the inner city as proof of White Supremacy. The only problem is, they have been in charge of these neighborhoods—they have spent the money—they have controlled the people. If this is their evidence, then White Supremacy either doesn’t exist or they are the White Supremacists.

Show me a major U.S. city run by Democrats for decades, and I will show you a city in decay, filled with crime, murder, drugs, and poverty. Example: Cities such as Chicago, St. Louis, and Baltimore, where every week there are mass shootings that dwarf the mass shootings in Gilroy, El Paso, and Dayton.  Yet, the national news outlets never report them.  Currently, in Democrat run Chicago, there are 51 criminals who have been charged with first degree murder, who have been put under “house arrest.”  The message: Murder someone, and the worst that can happen to you is: you will be sent to your room.

CHICAGO, IL – DECEMBER 31: Residents, activists, and friends and family members of victims of gun violence march down Michigan Avenue carrying nearly 800 wooden crosses bearing the names of people murdered in the city in 2016 on December 31, 2016 in Chicago, Illinois. Nearly 800 people have been murdered in the city this year and more than 4000 shot as the city copes with its most violent year in two decades. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)

Is the Left trying to fix any problem that actually exists? The answer is a deafening, NO. They are far too busy creating problems. Their victims so far are:

 The nuclear family: A source of social stability and well-being for thousands of years. They shattered it with everything from shaming moms who wanted to stay home, redefining marriage, gender fluidity, drag queen story hours, gender-free bathroom crusades, and the oppression of churches. The list could go on and on.

Economic opportunity: The Left has never met a tax or a new regulation they didn’t like. Bloating government to strangle small business is their stock-in-trade. Given a free hand, their economic policies have always led to recession.

The human spirit: Convincing minority youth that they are victims destroys hope and incentive. The Left has turned self-pity into an art form. It was inevitable that they would worship Socialism. Socialism at its heart is for those who believe they can’t make it on their own without food stamps, free cell phones, and the bottomless government grab bag. They have been convinced they will not survive without these programs.

Is the Left trying to eradicate poverty? About as much as the drug dealer is trying to eradicate addiction. It is only by inducing fear, self-pity, and entitlement, that they maintain control.

America has been taken over by a Leftist spirit that is the antithesis of everything America was founded on. We are not engaged in a debate between the ideologies of the Right or the Left—we are in a war between addiction, degradation and atheism versus  liberty, decency, and a future.

Look at them. Do you see solutions, inspiration, openness, or compassion?  No you do not. You see a Party of delusional Don Quixotes who are tilting at windmills, while they trample honor, truth, and decency in their quest for a nonexistent cause.

Yet, in this fog of delusion, there are some hopeful signs of life.  Roughly 400 pastors and faith leaders will descend on Lynchburg, Virginia later this week as two major evangelical forces unite together in the beginning efforts of a 2020 national ground game aimed at restoring Judeo-Christian principles across the country and mobilizing an evangelical army of pastors to lead the way.

The closed-door, two-day event will be held at Liberty University, one of the largest evangelical universities in the country and is organized by the American Renewal Project, led by influential political mechanic David Lane. They’re bringing in the pastors for the affair, many of whom are expected to take part in a political training session as they mull over whether to run for local or statewide office.

Pray for an awakening like this to spread to churches all over America!

Pray like you know what is at stake!

 

 

FREEDOM

When the racists call everyone else racist—when the fascists call everyone else fascists—when those who are full of hate—call everyone else haters, and society listens, then freedom is, truly, just a candle in the wind.

When the Left says that words can be the same as violence, and then they are found to be guilty by their own inflammatory words and actions, then freedom is a candle in the wind.

As John Daniel Davidson said, “Is it not divisive and inflammatory for Democrats to refuse to enforce our borders while promising to give taxpayer-paid health care to illegal immigrants? Is it not divisive and inflammatory for sports stars and corporations to denounce the Betsy Ross flag and the national anthem as racist? Doesn’t that exacerbate a feeling of helplessness and dispossession, and fuel a whole spectrum of responses—from ordinary patriotism to outright xenophobia and racism?”

When thugs don masks and beat innocent people in MAGA hats and these terrorists are coddled by Democrats and leftist media, then freedom is a candle in the wind.

Elizabeth Warren—who is still uncertain of her own race—blamed Donald Trump for “advancing racism and white supremacy.” She and the others on the Left are all but calling for a race war. When war is declared and the side that does not want war is blamed for the war, then freedom is a candle in the wind.

Worst of all, we see how evil they are, that they can immediately politicize a massacre.  They don’t care about the victims of the shootings. Bullets tore into the bodies of innocent people. Did any of the voices of manufactured outrage care anything for the families who lost everything in an instant? The shattered lives do not matter to them. The incurable sorrow will get no compassion from them.  To them, these families are just a photo opportunity—a prop to be used to alarm a nation into voting for them.

Instantly, Beto O’Rourke said that President Trump was a “racist” and had “a lot to do with what happened in El Paso yesterday.” Sen. Cory Booker was even more blunt, saying, “Donald Trump is responsible for this.” When masses of people can’t see how evil this is, then freedom is a candle in the wind. 

Most sane people reject the Right Wing conspiracy theory that says international corporate and political elites in the West are intentionally replacing their native populations with immigrants, in order to enrich themselves.

However, the Left isn’t trying to deny this.  The New York Times ran a Michelle Goldberg column under the headline, “We Can Replace Them,” which closed with this line: “In a week, American voters can do to white nationalists what they fear most. Show them they’re being replaced.”

Again John Daniel Davidson says, “This isn’t a new idea on the Left, and it isn’t relegated to the fringe. Back in 2002, Ruy Teixeira and John Judis came out with “The Emerging Democratic Majority,” which popularized and mainstreamed the idea that white Americans would be replaced by a permanent majority coalition of non-white voters. Ten years later, after President Obama’s reelection, Teixeira took to the the pages of The Atlantic to argue that things were playing out just as he had predicted, and that if Democrats could keep giving Americans what they truly wanted—more welfare, more regulation, more government control over daily life—then “the emerging Democratic majority could be here to stay.”

More recently, turning the white nationalists’ “replacement” rhetoric on its head has become commonplace among Antifa protestors chanting “we will replace you,” a sentiment powerfully reinforced by the anti-Immigration and Customs Enforcement protestors who recently tore down an American flag outside an ICE facility and replaced it with the Mexican flag.”

When such utter tyranny can advance unchecked, and is protected by a news media that is corrupt to the core, then freedom is a candle in the wind.

However, freedom’s greatest enemy does not reside in the camp of leftists, but in the pews of churches. A soundly sleeping generation of believers is our greatest enemy. Their apathy is our deepest danger.

But all is not lost.

History shows us that God does not wait for the lukewarm to rise to their duty. Our God is a consuming fire.  Do you wonder, why God doesn’t do something? You see America being torn apart, battered into submission, and molded into some ugly weak version of her former self. All in the name of progress. When those who are the moral bottom of society become the loudest voices of influence, shouldn’t God act?

I believe He is acting. But it is happening in a wholly unexpected way. He is at war to save our nation. The real question is, “Are you ready to understand what your assignment is in His war to save America?”

In a last-ditch effort to save America, God will pour out His Spirit. It will not be within the “system” but outside celebrated circles. It will restore much of Spirit-filled Pentecostal churches from business-model-entertainment-centers back to a movement.  Many small churches will become ground zero for the Glory of God.

This event will not be painless. Wicked agendas will topple. False doctrine will die an early death due to the healthy appetite of young converts. Church empires will be given the ultimatum to return to dependency on the Holy Spirit or be brushed aside, and suffer total loss.

God’s miracle will be a great boon to some, but a horrendous event for others. It will be a day of rejoicing and a day of mourning. It will be a complete display of extremes. God will do what He has to do to save this nation.

In this hour, it is not enough to be saved and filled with the Holy Spirit—not nearly enough. Every soldier of God must know what God is doing in their time. The New Testament begins and ends with the drama of willing vessels having their lives interrupted, ruined for mortal pursuits, commissioned for great exploits, and then launched into an amazing adventure.

STAND!

Evangelical leaders hailed Trump as a type of King Cyrus.  Now they are bailing on him because they can’t take the heat.   Just when he needs the church the most they abandon ship.

Fellow preachers, do we need to be reminded about the miracle we saw on election night?  For weeks, we were told he had no chance to win.  Have you forgotten how close we came to a nuclear winter called Hillary?

Do we need to be reintroduced to the obvious?  Look at who hates him, and you will find every reason to stand with him.  The same people that hate Israel, hate Trump.  The same people who want to kill Trump, want to kill the unborn.  The same people that want to silence Trump, want to silence the church.

Pastor, his enemies are your enemies.  Those who want to stop his policies, also want to stop your vision.

He tweets.  Get over it!  When virtually every news outlet lies about him…how else will he get the truth out?

He is rough and crude.  So, what?  Draining the swamp in Washington is not the job for your breathy voiced yoga instructor.   Trump is the strong medicine God chose.

He has enraged all the usual suspects:  Teacher’s unions, socialist hippies, gas bag college professors, and all the cuckoo caucuses infesting our halls of government.

I want to remind my esteemed yet timid colleagues our children are getting a nutty education.  Life doesn’t hand out participation trophies.  Life won’t let you retreat to your safe place.  Do you honestly believe that the drivel doled by leftists in the name of “education” will teach hard work, perseverance, and character?

Trump’s determination to make us strong in a hostile world is condemned as “nationalism.”  His campaign to make education rational is condemned as “out of date.”  Only drug addled moonbeams can find fault with common sense.

Our morally bankrupt leaders don’t know how to solve problems.  My generation put a man on the moon—this generation put a man in the girl’s bathroom.   I am not attacking transgender people. I am illustrating how—when it comes to priorities—liberalism rots the brain.  With the life-threatening problems we face they focus on this?

In the next 90 days we will see the most blatant attack—in our history—on everything we value as believers.

The last thing President Trump should feel right now is that he is alone.  He must feel the fervent prayers of the Body of Christ.  He must hear your voice supporting his valiant moves to unwind the snake Obama wrapped around the throat of our democracy.

Dear preacher did you support Trump because of a fad fever?  Are you silent because of the backlash?  If you believe Trump is a miracle, and a type of King Cyrus, then act like it!  Seize this divine opportunity to stand with policies that best reflect our values.  Don’t chicken out now that the heat is on.

I never voted for Trump because I heard some goose-bump prophecy.  I came to my decision in prayer.  I studied history.  I saw us sinking into the same quicksand that ended prior nations.  I looked at our choices and it was crystal clear that Trump was not just the best choice—he was the only choice.  He still is.

EVEN FOR DEMOCRATS

The Debate Last night proved once and for all that a Democrat win would be a disaster even for Democrats. Leftists dream of a Trump loss, not realizing how horrendously they would reap what they have sown. The Left has poisoned the well so completely that it will be impossible for a Democrat to govern. A Trump loss would absolutely push millions over the edge, and only God knows what that would look like.

Here are the 3 reasons why it would be a nightmare for Democrats as well as for the rest of us, if Trump were to be defeated:

1. Americans, by the tens of millions will believe the election was rigged.  And, they will adamantly reject the results and force legal action.  Even those who are not currently Trump supporters believe that an elite group of leftists are in control of the social and news media platforms.  We know that they manipulate and censor information.  We know this elite group is fiercely anti-Trump. We know this cadre has the power to rig an election. Google has been caught in a scheme to add millions of votes to the Democrat candidate.  Facebook has leaked the fact that they will choke off Trump ads and shadow ban any post that asks people to vote for Trump.  We already know that CNN, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, and CBS will saturate America with anti-Trump propaganda.

 2. The economy would instantly plunge downward. Does a Democrat really want to oversee the greatest collapse of jobs and wealth since the great depression?  The nation will blame the Democrat Party.

It is one of history’s greatest miscalculations to believe that veering left is what Americans want. Yet, all of the Democrat candidates are falling over each other to be as far left as possible.  The Socialist/LGBTQ/Anti-Israel rants play well to the oxygen deprived audiences of Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, and Bernie Sanders. However, they scare the liver out of the majority of Americans.

If the day were to come when a Democrat takes the oath of office, all that will be seen by millions of Americans, is impending economic disaster.

3. Millions of people will make it their aim to be as rude and unfair to both the Democrat President and their followers, as the Left was to Trump and his supporters. I am in no way condoning this—I am merely predicting what would take place.  It  tragic that the Left destroyed civil discourse. 

A Democrat win would mean open season to say, print, or publish whatever vile slur comes to mind, because that is the model that has been created by the Democrat Party. A vast segment of the population would remember that Trump was the most unfairly, falsely, and cruelly treated President since Abraham Lincoln.

The backlash for all that the Left has been doing, such as: assaulting people in MAGA hats, spitting on them in restaurants, their elected officials calling for harassment and for chasing down Trump supporters, and for all the violence committed by Antifa, has set the tone for the new President.

In Red States, masses would push their representatives to block everything the new Democrat President tried to do, and would take out their rage on any and every Democrat politician in their home State. Forget about any new appointments to the Supreme Court.

You may ask, “Mario, are you saying I should vote for Trump even though I violently disagree with him?” No, I am not. What I am saying is that you, who are leftists, have done a great evil to America. I am saying that defeating Trump will not bring the elation you fantasize about—it will bring even more misery.  And, why not? It is only fair that you should suffer along with the rest of us.

However, Trump is going to win. And, if you only realized what that means for the future of America, you would be relieved to know that it is true.

The Grace Period is over

The grace period is over for false and carnal preachers because there is too much at stake. It’s over, because protecting you from shame is not nearly as important as saving a nation from destruction.

The Left has declared total war on decency, and you are in God’s line of fire.

Ask yourself. Why were Ananias and Sapphira struck dead at the feet of Peter in Acts chapter 5? It was not just for what they did, it was also because of when they did it. They did it at an explosive moment for the church. Satan was going about like a roaring lion, trying to destroy the church, and God was doing extraordinary miracles by the hands of the Apostles. Ananias and Sapphira chose to lie to the Holy Spirit at a strategic time when the church needed to be reminded that they served a holy God.

You will either be purified or replaced.  The time when God winked at your compromise is over.  You thought God didn’t see. “And they say, “How does God know? And is there knowledge in the Most High?””  (Psalm 73:11).

Worse yet, you thought because He has delayed your discipline, He has somehow given you license to continue in your lifestyle of drunkenness and materialism.

Public confession of sin is coming.  Malachi 3:3 says, “He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord an offering in righteousness.” Remember—not everyone who is disciplined by God will make the cut.

Look for tragic downfalls—you who have fattened yourselves at the expense of the sheep and left them weak and unprotected.  (see Ezekiel 34) God told you to resist the wicked winds of political change.  Instead, you hid behind a lame excuse that you didn’t want to be political.

The wicked devices of the Left that have wrecked marriage, and continue to kill the unborn, are but a few of the evils it was your duty to oppose.  Instead, you self-righteously said you were above politics.

 

Meanwhile, those political policies have oppressed the sheep of God. Godless laws got them fired for being Christian.  You said nothing. Political correctness got their children suspended from school. You looked the other way.   Godless laws bankrupted bakers, florists, and other Christian small businesses.  And still, you were silent.

In your silence, you are taking other people down with you.   You are damaging your audience by only saying what they want to hear. You have not led them forward; you have not removed them from danger.  Worse yet, when you finally speak out, it is misguided.

You were silent when Obama worked his destruction.  But now you oppose a President who is doing more for the sheep of God than you are.  Man of God: Tell the truth.

I was awakened out of a dead sleep, and God said, “It is time to fulfill My promise.” Then He showed me Jeremiah 3:15, “And I will give you shepherds according to My heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.”

Satan is not impressed with your billion-dollar empire. He mocks it.  It has no power where it matters.  R. A. Torrey said, “The Devil is perfectly willing that the church should multiply its organizations and its deftly contrived machinery for the conquest of the world for Christ, if it will only give up praying…The Devil is not afraid of machinery; he is only afraid of God. And machinery without prayer is machinery without God.”

Then God told me how He has come to despise the word, ‘Activate.’  He is rebuking the signs-and- wonders-crowd who are cheapening the gifts of the Spirit by promising instant activation of gifts and  turning God into some kind of vending machine.  God is opposed to the message that promises gifts without a relationship to the Heart of the Father.  God will only grant gifts to those who surrender to intimacy with Christ.  It is not an overnight deal—it is a grueling journey, it is the furnace of affliction, and a season of preparation.

‘Instant-ism’ is bringing the prophetic movement down.  Repent or you will soon find your movement in the museum of failed revivals.  The enterprise of doling out daily words of prophecy grieves God.  He deems it to be the same as horoscope reading.  Worst of all, it has driven the sheep away from the Bible.  All of this prophesying has failed to lead to a spiritual awakening in America. 

Consider:  “I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran. I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.  But if they had stood in My counsel, and had caused My people to hear My words, then they would have turned them from their evil way and from the evil of their doings.” (Jeremiah 23: 21,22)

We are on the cusp of a golden era of soul winning.  God sees the harvest is ripe.  Beware of the anger of God most when He sees the lost searching for Him.  That is when He cleans house. That is when He says, “I am going to save the lost—either let me purify you for service, or get out of My way.”

It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of an angry God. (Hebrews 10:31)

The Secret

Let’s get to the heart of this blog.  Why do they hate him?  Since there is no evidence of white supremacy, racism, collusion, or any of the other canards they use to hate him what is the real reason?  And I don’t just mean leftists…I also mean Republicans.  The secret to this hatred is found—in of all places—the story of Lazarus.

Except for a few Republicans with convictions, there really is no difference between Democrats and Republicans in Congress.  You can see it in the ongoing reluctance of Republicans to defend Trump.

Washington looks like there are two distinct world views colliding.  But conservative and liberal are mostly labels for show.  There is something deeper going on here.

Why is Trump so hated?  They don’t hate him because of Stormy Daniels, Omarosa, 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.  Mueller’s abuse of power should be called into account but it 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.

Unless there was betrayal on both sides the FBI could not have been weaponized to fight to prevent Trump’s election and, upon failing at that, creating the Russian collusion myth.

Finally, it’s because Trump is a threat to their “place” nothing Trump will ever do will change their mind.

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.”

 

Still thinks its a game

The Democrats have made it plain: free healthcare for illegals paid for by you. They are not hiding anything. They want the right to kill newborns. They will force the church to stop teaching God’s word on sexual immorality. They will remake America. We see their true colors. They couldn’t be any clearer.

What I don’t get, is how the American church can still think this is all a game.

Because of man, and nature—planet Earth is ready to explode—not from global warming but from moral cooling.  Matthew 24:12 “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.”

Meanwhile, the church—like passengers partying on the deck of the Titanic—pats herself on the back for what she considers her ‘big events.’

Nothing has stopped America’s headlong depravity. Nothing has even slowed it down. We have spent more money, more time, and more talent than ever—yet the church never asks, “Why do we keep doing things that don’t work?” Why can’t we impact culture?”

When the church:           

-Feeds a powerless Gospel to a sick nation, a Gospel that does not deliver us from evil, but even worse, makes those who have already been converted still weaker, the church must think it is a game.

-When the church no longer views the works of Satan as the enemy, but believes the worst thing that can happen is to have an unsuccessful life—the church is just playing a game.  The only solution is a return to the Bible.  The Bible needs to set fire to our sermons.

Sadly, even 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 excite Charismatics today.

Witness the games:

-Titles like Prophet, Bishop, 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, telling us that they are the ‘vessel of the hour’?

– Conferences promise that you will get “a word from God” if you pay a fee…as if the Holy Spirit was some kind of On Demand Movie Channel.  Or they offer formulas to “activate” blessings.  This is New Age philosophy.  God is not a force to be manipulated—He is an awesome person to be adored and obeyed.  God is not your shield and butler! Gifts arrive, as the Spirit wills, to those whose hearts are broken and those who are emptied of self. His gifts are 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’ rather than 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 war, and not into emotionally comfortable 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 tearing down any kind of strongholds—because we think it’s a game. We insulate the supernatural from the ones who need it most. We are role playing. We are doing our own version of dungeons and dragons. 

Beloved, this is not a game.  When Christians toy with materialism, celebrity, alcohol, compromise, and carnalityit spells doom for America.   Right now, giant media sources such as Google, Facebook, Apple, YouTube, and the rest of Silicon Valley, are threatening to pull the plug on Christians, Christian Schools, and churches.  Pinterest has already been caught deleting posts containing scripture. Every day they inch closer to full censorship.  Will your zany videos matter, when they are immediately taken down and no one can see them?

Our preaching ricochets off a culture careening into indescribable debauchery.  Soon it will be illegal to preach the doctrines you are now ignoring.  What a horror!  Pastor, you will wake up one day feeling remorse over the truths you ignored, because now it’s too late—they have been banned.

I am often asked, “Mario is there any hope?”

The answer is, “Yes! Because my hope is founded on God’s fierce love for America!  He will not let this nation go, without a fierce fight.  My hope is also in some of the last people you would expect.

My hope is in the discouraged preacher.  They are the honest-to-God preachers, who feel like fools when they see the runaway success of those who have compromised their ministries.

Psalm 73:12 “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 Christ-centered, Bible-based-truth from your pulpit?   God sees you! Hold on just a little longer.  Fire is coming that will cause such a stampede that 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! They are about to break out, right where you live!

The hour is so dangerous that God must bring down religious empires, while promoting others to great power and influence.  Satan is also playing games.

I believe that God is not playing games. Using the last people we would expect, He is about to teach Satan what war really looks like!
