A NEW WARNING AND PROMISE FROM THE LORD

From about November of 2019, until February of 2020, many were prophesying what 2020 would be like. 90% of the predictions tagged 2020 as a year of amazing prosperity, breakthrough, and revival.

You may remember how—based on a decades-old ‘prophetic word’—national revival was supposed to come on the heels of the Kansas City Chiefs winning the Super Bowl.  Instead of revival, we got a pandemic. Instead of prosperity, we got massive unemployment and the fastest destruction of an economy in history. Instead of a breakthrough, we got a lockdown. Instead of churches thriving, they were totally empty. Instead of righteousness flowing like a river, the worst demonstrations since the 1960s tore our nation apart, after a heinous murder ignited rage, fear, and deep division.

Here is an excerpt from a blog I wrote on November 9th, 2019, entitled THE OUTWARDLY SUCCESSFUL CHURCH ISN’T STOPPING OUR IMPENDING NATIONAL DISASTER: “Why does the American Church think she is successful?  Her outward success hasn’t even tapped the brakes of our impending national disaster.  I wish I could say we had stopped the flood of filth and addiction.  I’d even be happy if I could say we had slowed the flood.  But no, as the flood rises, we take pride in how well we can keep people safe and dry in artificial arks of glass and stainless steel.  We celebrate things that are utterly irrelevant in the disaster that is even now at the door.” You can read the rest of that blog here:

The first cases of coronavirus began only weeks after the Holy Spirit ordered me to predict national disaster. But those who rebuked the church, including myself, were rejected for not joining the chorus with those who were singing the praises of 2020.

Don’t you wish you had heard something from your pulpit that could have warned and prepared you for what we are facing right now? Those voices were drowned out by a spirit in the Body of Christ that—even after all we have been through for 6 months now—still wants to hear a giddy message of false hope.

Jeremiah called out the false prophets who refused to believe Babylon would invade Judah. They were prophesying that Babylon, not Judah, would fall, and in less than two years, but Jeremiah declared that Judah would fall and enter a 70 year-long captivity. That captivity came, and some of those false prophets were taken to Babylon. And you know what?  Fantastically, even in chains, they insisted on saying that it would soon be over. They continued to lie, even in the face of the absolute proof they were liars.

Even now, preachers in America are saying the exact same thing as last year—as if none of this has happened, and no real danger lies ahead. Once again, you are being set up for another crushing disappointment, because you are listening to men who are hopelessly addicted to a false message.

Read Jeremiah 38 and you will see something chilling. There was one clear difference between the true prophet and the false ones: The false prophets never called for repentance. That is how you can tell the real from the false preachers right now—if they are not proclaiming national repentance, run the other way!

I said all that, because once again, I must make a prediction and issue a warning.  Some will be offended by what I am going to say next: The worst part of the storm is almost upon us. In the next few weeks, you will see a tidal wave of rioting, persecution, censorship, and crime. The evil that is going to be spoken and done against Christians, President Trump, the forces of law and order, and any patriot who dares to take a stand for America, will be unlike anything you have seen so far. Hell itself will be unleashed, in order to crush freedom in our nation.

You will hear virulent things said against our President that will horrify and sicken you. You will hear politicians call for legislation that sounds like it came out of North Korea. You will hear loud voices even begin to worship abortions and perversion. You will see an election vandalized, with massive censorship of any pro-Trump ad. You will see leftist news personalities calling for his imprisonment and even his death.  All pretense of decency will be cast aside.

The next few weeks will embody 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!”

The church should have been called to massive prayer meetings, seeking mercy and repentance. Instead, we are seeing pastors calling for ‘cute’ ways for churches to handle the shutdown. Christian leaders will continue to remain neutral and passive, when they should be rallying the Body of Christ.

Here is my warning from the Lord: The church must be the first to turn from her wicked ways. The church must preach repentance, the Cross, the Blood and passionately seek a fresh out-pouring of the Holy Spirit. Preachers must cast off all pretense of trying to save their jobs. They must preach with such force that they pierce hearts and drive home the gravity of the situation, and clearly proclaim what the true stakes of this moment are.

 

Someone asked me if the Lord had shown me that Trump would win a second term. I told them, “No, He has not.” I told them what I am telling you now, that the single greatest threat to Trump’s reelection is the hesitancy of preachers to rally their people to vote. It boggles my mind that this is still possible! But it is symptomatic of the deep deception that characterizes this hour.

Just as dark and impossible as it may seem, just as vile as this moment appears, there is still a miracle waiting in the wings. Our God—our awesome God—our God Who comes out of nowhere, is sending a clear and undeniable signal to a remnant. They have already been tried in the fire, and now they will come forth like gold. Look for nobodies to get battlefield promotions and raise up armies of righteousness.

At this moment Satan is trembling with fear at the thought of their appearing. At this hour the devil shivers before the inevitable return of new lions—warriors with tongues of fire, healing in their hands and irresistible words of Life. They are coming. Oh, yes, they are!

As Nehemiah recalled: “Therefore You delivered them into the hand of their oppressors who oppressed them, but when they cried to You in the time of their distress, You heard from heaven, and according to Your great compassion You gave them deliverers who delivered them from the hand of their oppressors.” (Nehemiah 9:27)

Let the lukewarm believer collapse before God in conviction. Let the hidden warrior take heart that God is about to force the situation in your favor. The difference between true vessels of God and hirelings is about to become extremely clear and undeniable.

I beseech you, before God: heed this warning and believe the promises!

ABUSING THE WARNINGS OF DAVID WILKERSON

David Wilkerson was a true prophet. The following prophecy has been attributed to him: “I see a plague coming on the world, and the bars, churches and government will be shut down. The plague will hit New York City and shake it like it has never been shaken. The plague is going to force prayerless believers into radical prayer and into their Bibles, and repentance will be the cry from the man of God in the pulpit. And out of it will come a third Great Awakening that will sweep America and the world.”

The thing is, no one close to David Wilkerson from his family, staff or from the congregation of his church ever heard him say this quote. It does not exist in any of his recorded messages or writings, so I cannot confirm nor deny the validity of this quote.

But it doesn’t really matter when you consider what can be confirmed. David Wilkerson spent years warning America that a storm was coming. Here is what we know he said about New York City, “In one hour everything is going to change.”

Then he said, “I believe that when the coming storm hits with full fury, and the nation is reeling with panic and fear, people will flee all false gospels and feel-good churches. Christians will forget about gospel entertainment and Christian TV, and they’ll start demanding hard truth. They’ll flock to hear godly pastors, demanding the true word of God. Their cry will be, “Who will preach to us a prophetic, life-changing word?”

What I can also confirm is a destructive hypocrisy in the Body of Christ toward David Wilkerson.  Jesus said, “Yes, woe to you, Pharisees, and you religious leaders—hypocrites! For you build monuments to the prophets killed by your fathers and lay flowers on the graves of the godly men they destroyed, and say, ‘We certainly would never have acted as our fathers did.’ “In saying that, you are accusing yourselves of being the sons of those who killed the prophets, and you are following in their steps, filling up the full measure of their evil” (Matthew 23:29-32).

Many—especially preachers—condemned David Wilkerson while he was alive, but now those same people are laying verbal flowers at the shrine of his memory, because of a single tantalizing quote. That confirms that even in the midst of a pandemic, there is a more of a tendency toward entertainment, than toward conviction.

Long after many of the prophets died, their predictions came true. Many of the sons of those who killed these vessels of God stood in awe of the accuracy of the prophecies, but did not repent of the evil the prophecies warned about. That is what is happening right now

In reference to the words of David Wilkerson, we are straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel. We are missing the point entirely. All things taken together, if we truly do revere David’s gift, we have to make several confessions.

We must confess that the virus we are fighting is the result of national sin, because David Wilkerson said the storm was a judgment.  If you do not accept David’s rebuke and warning, then you are laying flowers at a tomb, while rejecting the prophet.

David Wilkerson told us why America’s idols would be toppled: “What is the reason for this judgment? It will come as God’s wrath upon a nation that has shed rivers of innocent blood!” David Wilkerson pointed to abortion and to children who were being sold into sexual slavery as the reason America would suffer a storm.

But he also warned the church about carnality and said it was a major factor in the judgment of God on America. As far back as 1998, David Wilkerson solemnly warned the compromised American church and instructed those with a heart for God to get out of their dead churches. He also instructed them to seek God’s comfort and protection from what was about to come upon America. He said:

“The majority of churchgoers today soundly reject all prophetic warnings of a coming storm. Indeed, the American church today is the most blatant “feel good” church in all of history. But, like Israel, we’re only experiencing the calm before the storm!

“Likewise today, Christians by the multiple thousands are casting off the yoke of Christ, tossing aside all limits and restrictions. This attitude is prevalent in many of the books and magazines you find in Christian bookstores. It’s almost as if our leaders are saying, “Relax! God isn’t hard. He’s our Daddy, we’re all his kids, and we’re meant to have a good time. Don’t let anyone disturb your fun!””

Many are still having fun. Many think this pandemic will soon be behind us and the future will return undisturbed. It is disastrous to have fun cherry-picking the prophecies that are tasty morsels, but rejecting the repentance that they demand. Many are doing that right now—even in the face of total confirmation of why God did this—and what we need to do.

But the most chilling question we must ask is what will happen if we do not repent. Will we force the hand of God to act yet again to try and save us?

Is there hope? There is great hope! David Wilkerson not only predicted this storm, he gave amazing counsel for enduring it: “Beloved, if we’re going to face the coming storm, then we need to be prepared so that nothing disturbs our spirit. And the only way to do that is to spend time in the Father’s presence, beholding His face. We have to be shut in with Him, on our knees, until we’re thoroughly persuaded He’s at our right hand!”

“God is clearly telling us, “Don’t be moved or agitated by anything you see. Keep your eyes focused on Me, and you will retain your joy!”

“You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of joy in Your presence” (Acts 2:28).

We always have to keep in mind that God’s only purpose in lovingly calling us back to Himself is to protect us in such times of storm!

And finally, these soul searching questions: Are you acting on the warnings of David Wilkerson? Are you done with carnal churches? Are you repenting of the sins that God is grieved by? And finally, preacher—are you telling America she must repent, or will you keep flattering those who are calling down destruction upon us?

 

Let us place a new weapon in your hand. Mario’s new book that saw this coming and gives the instructions for those would let God forge them into a nation-saving weapon.

PREACHERS WHO LOVE THE SIN BUT HATE THE SINNER

There are preachers who drink to the point of drunkenness, but want nothing to do with evangelism. There are pastors addicted to porn who oppose soul winning. There are preachers cheating on their spouse, who at the same time, refuse to preach the Gospel.

Matthew Henry wrote this, concerning the Pharisees: “They were very strict in avoiding sinners, but not in avoiding sin; none greater zealots than they for the form of godliness, nor greater enemies to the power of it.”

“Hate the sin, but love the sinner,” is a popular quote. These ministers reverse it. They love the sin, but hate the sinner.

It is easy to be outraged by immoral pastors. But the sin of ‘loving sin and hating the sinner’ can be more subtle than booze, porn, or adultery—more subtle, but no less evil.

The Pharisees were not drunks, nor were they sexually immoral, yet, they were guilty of reversing their calling.  They loved power and popularity while disdaining the poor and the lost. They even attacked Christ for being around sinners.

The modern preachers who love adoring crowds and obscene wealth; the trendy pastor who deliberately takes the Bible out of context to advance a seductive message; the celebrity minister who is silent when interviewed by the secular media about hell, the Cross, sexual sin, and the need to repent: are all as guilty as Pharisees, and immoral ministers. They also ‘love the sin, but hate the sinner.’

Hating a sinner means you know your message won’t help them, but you preach it anyway. Hating the lost means you love other things more than seeing men and women delivered from the power of Satan.

Lost souls are going to hell, yet that never occurs to these modern preachers. Their obsession with numbers, prestige, and remaining acceptable by the outside world, has deafened them.

Modern preaching stopped being focused on winning souls, and not winning souls has done more damage than anything else to our nation. If America finally does degrade into a socialist dictatorship—under the wholly corrupt Democrat Party—it will be the fault of the pulpit.

Charles Finney said, “If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the public press lacks moral discrimination, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the world loses its interest in religion, the pulpit is responsible for it. If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it. Let us not ignore this fact, my dear brethren; but let us lay it to heart, and be thoroughly awake to our responsibility in respect to the morals of this nation.”

How evil is it when the very ones who are called to save a nation, instead, advance her destruction because of their vanity? The rampant sin of corrupt preaching is the mastodon in the room. We don’t want to talk about it. It is breaking a taboo to expose it. But, it is a towering iniquity that must be rebuked and rebuked fervently!

Sermons that garner the highest adulation may have been born in the lowest hell. Voices that receive wild acceptance from the world can be Satan’s greatest tool.

The greatest attack on the Body of Christ will not come from without, but from within. Again, Matthew Henry wrote, “Seducers are more dangerous enemies to the church than persecutors.”

False ministers are a trophy of Satan. It only takes a few of them to do horrendous harm. On the other hand, a small number of truly consecrated men and women can do astounding good even at this hour.

The dividing and separating has begun. The coronavirus was the deadline. The Lord has waited patiently, but now He will judge false ministers. Watch, the correction will be swift and fierce.

The voice of God is calling the righteous core to His side. He means to equip them with nation-saving skills.

At the same time, carnal ministers are on social media, vainly trying to save their empire. Even now, they insist on preaching their hollow lies, as if nothing has happened to justify repentance.

But you, vessel of God: ignore them. You have fresh orders. God is seizing you and He is seizing the moment to build you into a mighty vessel of love, truth, and supernatural power. Here is your mandate from the Bible:  “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work” (2 Timothy 2:20-21).

Cleanse yourself from the corrupt ‘Christianity incorporated’ that has bitterly failed America. Embrace robes of righteousness. Submit to the refiner’s fire, and you will come forth as gold.

Instead of using the degrading tactics of human marketing, we must take up the weapons of God!

“The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).

That is the picture of a new breed of preacher. Gifts of miracles will tear down demonic strongholds. Words from the Holy Spirit will destroy the most sophisticated arguments against the Gospel of Christ. Messages will be preached. Souls will be saved. Disciples will be created. And America will be delivered. Hallelujah!

TIME TO GET OUT OF THE CARNAL MEGA CHURCHES

This morning the Holy Spirit gave me a chilling warning: “Now that a glimmer of hope has appeared that America may be reopening, carnal mega-churches will not only revert to their old ways—they will get worse.” This will make them one of the most dangerous places for you to be.

These mega-church pastors have not repented of their carnal gospel, and therefore their people have not repented of their carnal ways. The contaminated crowd will put pressure on pastors to continue where they left off, and once again demand, “Preach what I want to hear!”

Before you reject me for raising this issue and accuse me of attacking them, consider this: they are attacking us. They are attacking the Word of God. They are attacking revival and the counsel of God for this crisis. They are endangering America.

This is what you will soon see in these churches:

  • Evangelical and Spirit-filled pastors performing same-sex-marriage ceremonies.
  • Intensified focus on material wealth, entitlement, and grace-licenses for greater immorality.
  • Churches will become even more like nightclubs than they are now.
  • Open opposition to Donald Trump will include false charges of racism, because compromised pastors and their “woke” audience care more for those who come here illegally than for those who are killed by illegals.
  • They will send money to programs that either support or perform abortions.

What should you do?

Get out! Separate yourselves from these carnal mega-churches. Staying in them puts you in harm’s way for the next judgment God is about to bring, in order to cleanse our nation.

Get out of these false churches, because their ways will infect you and your children. Get out because you are helping to finance something that God hates. In God’s eyes, false houses of worship carry the same threat level as atheism, drug addiction, and radical Islam.

But the primary reason to get out is stated clearly in 2 Timothy 2: 20-21, “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.”

In the Body of Christ, which is the ‘great house’ Paul was referring to, there are both vessels of honor and dishonor. He is challenging you to think about what your calling and destiny mean to you. What does it mean to you to be anointed, strong in gifts of power, and to carry out great exploits for Christ?

Paul is plainly telling you, you can’t do that, unless you separate from them.  The words he uses are “separate yourself from these.” Who do you think “these” are? They are the dishonorable carnal and false vessels that give Christianity a bad rep—a version of our faith that is responsible, to a great degree, for our national disasters.

It’s as clear as it can be: either get away from the fleshy, flashy, and fake, or forget about having any power with God.

Now, get in! After you get out, you have to get in. You aren’t a lone ranger. You need to be in a church where the leader is pressing into God, seeking revival. Find a church with a godly leader who is neither your ‘theological teddy bear,’ nor your ‘pulpit impresario.’ Find a man or woman of God who is paying the price to worship in Spirit and in Truth—find a leader who is an equipper, not an enabler. Go where the fire is falling. Don’t pick a house that titillates you; find the one that the Lord assigns you to.

The nation is filled with houses of God that will be ground zero for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. True prophets like David Wilkerson foretold of twin events—a calamity that would shut down America in an instant, followed by a fresh wave—a reformation of the Holy Fire of God, leading to a massive harvest.

Hold on! Another Azusa St. or Jesus Movement-type of event is in store for the people who know their God, and for the houses that have stayed faithful to their Lord.

On the other hand, there is no doubt that America has filled up God’s cup of wrath. Though we have passed through one storm—it won’t be the last. If we don’t learn the lesson, and repent, the wrath of God will again come down upon wickedness, because He means to purify the church and save our nation from itself.

The carnal mega-church is reading the message that relief is just around the corner, all wrong. It may be that God is allowing them to reap the full and vile consequences that their deception has earned—so that they will never again make such monstrous choices.

As shocking as the judgement will be so shall be the protection and prosperity of the righteous. The contrast will be as great as light and dark.

Get out! Then, get in!

“(Peter was preaching, and) went on in this vein for a long time, urging them over and over, “Get out while you can; get out of this sick and stupid culture!” (Acts 2:40, The Message)

How and why you pray for California

You may be sitting on the beach in Florida. You may be prepping your property for winter in Maine. You may be fighting traffic in Chicago. The furthest thing from your mind is to pray for California.

Nevertheless, California looms over you and those you love like the sword of Damocles. The seething progressives who run this state zealously seek to overthrow the United States and the Judeo-Christian ethic. Doubt this to your own peril.

And make no mistake about their power to overthrow our nation. Modern times have never seen anything like California. It is the fifth largest economy in the world.  It has only one political party. It is dominated by a handful of billionaires who bitterly despise your values. They are demonically unified. They have a plan to force their agenda on you, and the means to carry it out.

Don’t believe the blather about California wanting to secede from the United States. It’s quite the opposite. They want to become the pattern for all the other United States. Those in power plan to export their brand of socialism, green planet, climate change theory, anti-family, gender confused, progressive social justice, anti-Christian, pro-abortion ideology to the other 49 states.  They want to be the engine that drives our way of life. They don’t want to go off and do their own thing. They want to barge into your life and dictate every iota of your existence.

The trifecta of technology, entertainment, and education guarantees that California will have an outsized influence on your life—like it or not. What they have done so far is nothing compared to what they want to do, and how they plan to do it. That is why we need to pray!

Praying for California to have a revival and praying against the California satanic agenda is praying for your freedom and your children’s future.

Now let’s talk about how to pray for California. Let me tell you the story of how I learned to pray.

I was saved on October 4th 1964 in a small Free Methodist Church located at 3811 Mission St, San Francisco. The pastor, George Norsworthy began a 30 day fast the night I was born again. He discerned something.

God used him to forge the way I pray. The way he prayed made me want to pray the same way. I am certain that the way Jesus prayed overwhelmed the disciples until they blurted out, “Teach us to pray.” His answer is what we know as the Lord’s Prayer.

But two truths have guided my prayer life like no others.  The first one is found in Mark 11:24, “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”

The second one is in Luke 18:1, “Now Jesus was telling the disciples a parable to make the point that at all times they ought to pray and not give up and lose heart.”

The essence of prayer is this: You must believe absolutely that you will get what you ask, and you must keep asking no matter what happens. Everything else is just a superficial attempt. Combine these two forces in prayer and you will see miracles happen.

So here is what we are going to do. We are going to believe absolutely and irrevocably for a miracle in California, and we are never going to stop until that miracle comes. That is what I am doing, so thank you in advance for praying with me!  I know that if we all pray intensely for California, God will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.

Remember: “The Lord does not delay and is not slow about what He promises…but He is extraordinarily patient toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn and repent.” (2 Peter 3:9)

P.S. I want to thank you for praying for these 2 events:

A TRUMP VICTORY IS NOT GUARANTEED

A Democrat can win the Presidency simply because you are assuming they can’t win. Trump can lose simply because you believe his victory is guaranteed.

Back in November of 2018 many voices were guaranteeing a Republican victory that would see a majority in the House of Representatives. We were hearing prophetic words. We were told that the momentum of Trump’s victory would ensure a Republican victory in the midterm elections. There was a giddy air of overconfidence, but I had a sinking feeling.

Here is what I wrote on October 30th  :“75% of pastors have not taken a stand in their pulpits on the midterm elections. Think of that.  With the highest stakes ever—and the Christian vote essential for victory—they have not talked about this election. It will take a miracle for Republicans to keep the House of Representatives.  It should never have come to this.  The Christian bloc should have won easily.  Tens of millions of Christians had the power to vote the Left out of office.”

Then I said this, “If Nancy Pelosi returns, as they predict she will, the Democrats will instantly seize the Russia investigation.  They will move to impeach Trump and will even go after Kavanaugh.  Expect a torrent of subpoenas and gridlock.” 

I even posted this picture with the blog.

I took a lot of heat back then for going against the grain. But it was not hard to see the overconfidence. Back in 2018, we forgot several important factors and, apparently, we are forgetting those factors once again. Pastors are still not saying nearly enough from the pulpit. The church is too divided to properly rally for this election.

Factor number one: Bible illiteracy. American Christians simply do not know the Word of God. It has been absent from the pulpits of our most popular churches. We are paying a steep price for betraying the Holy Spirit in favor of human marketing. Prominent voices have been telling young preachers to avoid teaching the Biblical truths of one-man-one-woman marriage and the sanctity of human life.

You would be stunned if you knew how many Christians see nothing wrong with abortion, same sex marriage, or socialism. Many Christians have believed the lie that Jesus was a socialist!

This is why millions of people—who claimed to be Christians—voted for Democrats in the midterm elections. In some urban centers as many as 90% of so-called Christians voted for a Democrat, even though the platform of the Democrat Party embraces atheism and abortion.

The young people in our churches are the most deeply affected by ignorance of the Bible. Maybe it’s a lethal combination of wanting to be liked by their peers and the brutal ‘cancel-culture’ that is prevalent among youth, whereby anyone who disagrees with the Left is permanently boycotted.

Factor number two: Passive responses to prophecies. If you get angry because I call for unity and action, what does that say about you? What could possibly be wrong with sounding the alarm over church-wide apathy?  It says you are abusing the promise of God. Let me explain.

All prophecies require action. All words from God carry a counter-balancing act of obedience. Even the promise to “heal their land” contains several conditions: “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

When Daniel counted the years mentioned in the Book of Jeremiah, he saw it was time for Jeremiah’s prophecy to be fulfilled. Daniel knew that God would be faithful to His word, and that the children of Israel would be leaving their exile in Babylon and returning to their homes. His immediate reaction was to give up food, pray, and repent.

“In the first year of (the) reign (of Darius), I Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the Lord through Jeremiah the prophet, that He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes. And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession…” (Daniel 9:2-4) Daniel understood that promises carry conditions.

So, what is the proper course of action right now?  Do not underestimate the power of Satan to use a Democrat to fool America right out of existence. Do not insult the miracle God has provided, by assuming that all Trump needs to do is bide his time and he will automatically win.

These blogs were never my idea! I am under an edict from God, and I have felt a spike in my urgency in just the last few hours. Some have accused me of always issuing warnings. But here is what Paul said, “Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.” (Acts 20:31)

We must repent of assuming we don’t have hard work ahead of us. We must repent of foolishly ignoring signs of coming deception and criminal acts against us from the Left. We must repent of preaching that does not marshal unity and resolve.

The infighting and opposing camps of the American body of Christ are a grave threat to freedom. Every pastor must roar from the pulpit and call on the millions of Americans to realize that this goes way beyond Donald Trump—that many Democrats, especially Bernie and his followers have demonstrated a willingness to start violent revolution. We must realize that in the face of their hatred and demonic agenda, we are simply not ready to take the appropriate action. We are in a spiritual war, facing a determined enemy, yet many believers are acting as if we cannot possibly lose. Some even criticize those who say it is possible for Trump to lose, as if that takes away from God’s promise. That’s crazy!

Of course we need to vote, but this goes much, much deeper. We need to hear from God and present to America a compelling case for our Constitution, the rule of law, and the tradition of Faith in Christ.

If you don’t know your Bible, it is no wonder you don’t know what to do. If you are assuming prophetic promises are fulfilled without good old fashioned hard work and boldness, you are wrong. Pray about it. And then obey the Holy Spirit. We must be united if we are to save this nation!

 

 

 

 

 

How and why you pray for California

You may be sitting on the beach in Florida. You may be prepping your property for winter in Maine. You may be fighting traffic in Chicago. The furthest thing from your mind is to pray for California.

Nevertheless, California looms over you and those you love like the sword of Damocles. The seething progressives who run this state zealously seek to overthrow the United States and the Judeo-Christian ethic. Doubt this to your own peril.

And make no mistake about their power to overthrow our nation. Modern times have never seen anything like California. It is the fifth largest economy in the world.  It has only one political party. It is dominated by a handful of billionaires who bitterly despise your values. They are demonically unified. They have a plan to force their agenda on you, and the means to carry it out.

Don’t believe the blather about California wanting to secede from the United States. It’s quite the opposite. They want to become the pattern for all the other United States. Those in power plan to export their brand of socialism, green planet, climate change theory, anti-family, gender confused, progressive social justice, anti-Christian, pro-abortion ideology to the other 49 states.  They want to be the engine that drives our way of life. They don’t want to go off and do their own thing. They want to barge into your life and dictate every iota of your existence.

The trifecta of technology, entertainment, and education guarantees that California will have an outsized influence on your life—like it or not. What they have done so far is nothing compared to what they want to do, and how they plan to do it. That is why we need to pray!

Praying for California to have a revival and praying against the California satanic agenda is praying for your freedom and your children’s future.

 

Now let’s talk about how to pray for California. Let me tell you the story of how I learned to pray.

I was saved on October 4th 1964 in a small Free Methodist Church located at 3811 Mission St, San Francisco. The pastor, George Norsworthy began a 30 day fast the night I was born again. He discerned something.

God used him to forge the way I pray. The way he prayed made me want to pray the same way. I am certain that the way Jesus prayed overwhelmed the disciples until they blurted out, “Teach us to pray.” His answer is what we know as the Lord’s Prayer.

But two truths have guided my prayer life like no others.  The first one is found in Mark 11:24, “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”

The second one is in Luke 18:1, “Now Jesus was telling the disciples a parable to make the point that at all times they ought to pray and not give up and lose heart.”

The essence of prayer is this: You must believe absolutely that you will get what you ask, and you must keep asking no matter what happens. Everything else is just a superficial attempt. Combine these two forces in prayer and you will see miracles happen.

So here is what we are going to do. We are going to believe absolutely and irrevocably for a miracle in California, and we are never going to stop until that miracle comes. That is what I am doing, so thank you in advance for praying with me!  I know that if we all pray intensely for California, God will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.

Remember: “The Lord does not delay and is not slow about what He promises…but He is extraordinarily patient toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn and repent.” (2 Peter 3:9)

P.S. I want to especially thank you for praying for our 6 tent crusades in California

NUMBER ONE REASON

It threatens the church more than drugs, pornography, Islamic terror, fake news or any impending world calamity.  Left unchecked, it can’t be overstated how much damage it will do.  Yet, as dangerous as it is—and this is the maddening part—it is utterly curable and preventable.  But, tragically, we may not have the heart or the stomach to solve this crisis.

So, who or what is the culprit?  It’s not a situation it is a person. A person we cater to in all our programs.  Let me ask you: Who is using up vital resources? Who is driving pastors into deadly compromise—or out of the ministry entirely?  Who is responsible for shutting down, derailing, and destroying the things that matter to the Christian faith?  The answer is painful…are you even sure you want to know?

The villain is a monster of our own making.  University professors may have invented the easily triggered, woefully self-righteous, self-centered snow flake, quivering in their safe place, but we have concocted something much worse.  We have created the Low Impact-High Maintenance Believer, or the LIHMB.  They are a monstrosity that has been created by the church-growth-by-any-means-necessary-movement.

They have created the perfect storm.

How do I explain them to you? Think of the Intensive Care Unit.  There is a tube up the nose.  There is an I.V. in the arm pumping fluids, or painkillers.  There is a heart monitor, and a breathing machine.  They all serve the same purpose.  They keep the patient alive…artificially.  Many church programs today are doing the same thing.

The difference between hospital care and church care is that machines in the hospital are for those who can’t do anything for themselves…in the church, they are for those who won’t do anything for themselves.  They are why money for soul winning and giving to the poor is (pardon my pun) going down the tubes.  They consume all the time and resources of the church staff.

Because they are fickle, they have started a price war between churches—discounted discipleship.  Pastors compete to have the shortest service, the most convenient parking, the best coffee, and the least offensive sermon—and suddenly church has become speed-dating.

We now have an odd irony.  Church used to be about getting people to God. Now it seems to be about protecting them from God.

The Bible prophesied LIHMBs in 2 Timothy 4:3: “For the time will come when people will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.”

They can’t handle life.  They can’t fathom the concept of self-denial.  They hold preachers hostage to all-consuming programs and sermons they hate preaching. Where there used to be a room full of disciples eager to participate, now there is merely an audience.

LIHMBs are the reason many godly people have given up on Sunday mornings.  But LIHMBs do even more damage.  They create a special kind of discouragement.  Think of the man or woman of God who pastors by the Book.  They see the church across the street use the latest stunts and explode overnight.  An immature believer says, “I am leaving, you don’t have what I need.”   A heartsick vessel of God wonders, “Am I a fool for sticking to my convictions?  Is it true that the pure Gospel, anointed by the Holy Spirit, cannot grow a church today without gimmicks?”

Daniel 11:32 says, “The people who know their God will be strong and carry out great exploits.”  The LIHMB Version should read, “The people who think they know God will be weak and carry out nothing.”

The solution is simple, dear leader:

-REPENT! 

-Meet with your deacon-possessed leaders and drop the gauntlet: “We are going to return the control of this Church to the Holy Spirit. We are going to center it on Christ, and let the chips fall where they may.”

-Expect many to leave.  Expect the presence of God to return.  Expect a whole new crop of true disciples to arrive, ready to serve.  Expect turn-away crowds that arrive early, for the right reasons.

Is it true that the “pure Gospel, anointed by the Holy Spirit, can’t grow a church today without gimmicks?”  Tens of millions of Pentecostals in emerging nations, who regularly see miracles and multitudes filled with the Holy Spirit, prove that to be a silly lie.

There are two massive reasons for us to have hope for real disciples, real revival, and real impact on our culture:  The Holy Spirit and Jesus.

The Holy Spirit is tasked with giving us power, strategy, and a mouth and wisdom that our adversaries cannot contradict or resist.  The Holy Spirit was sent to grow the Christian movement.  The most talented church marketer pales as a pathetic substitute for the wisdom and power of the Holy Spirit.

The Church offers the most irresistible attraction of the universe:  Jesus Himself!

Charles Spurgeon wrote: “King of kings, and Lord of lords, the “Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father. The Prince of Peace.” “Yea, he is altogether lovely.” There are no flaws in Him. Jesus is lovely in the highest degree. Jesus is as lovely to my heart as to my head, as dear as He is good. He is lovely to my hopes: are they not all in Him? Is not this my expectation—to see Him as He is? But He is lovely to my memory too: did He not pluck me out of the net? As David puts it, “My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God”—the whole of the man seeking after the whole of the Savior; the whole Savior sweet and inexpressibly precious to the man’s entire being. May it be so with you and with me. Oh, to love Him wholly, and to love Him only, so that we have no eyes for other beauty, no heart for other loveliness since He fills our souls, and is to us “altogether lovely.”

Amen!

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)
