THE RELIGIOUS SPIRIT

A religious spirit has been unleashed. This devil is beating church leaders down to a docile lump. Preachers who once stood against sin and persecution, are letting the Bride of Christ turn into the battered wife of the State.

The ban on singing in church is both wholly illegal and unenforceable. Disobeying it is a no-brainer. But many preachers can’t even draw the line here. Read this giddy and submissive letter to church members from a Spirit-filled denomination that has over 1,300 churches in California:

“We will worship this Sunday without singing our praise to God. We were strongly encouraged by our ____________ denominational head to follow the strictest guidelines which in California has a ban on singing. Thank you for your understanding. We trust we will be able to sing in worship to God soon.”

Several reactions come to mind. First, who are they trusting to allow them to worship God soon? Second, Daniel prayed anyway, despite the decree of authority. Peter preached anyway, after being ordered to be silent. But we can’t bring ourselves to sing, anyway?

How have we fallen for such a ridiculous attack? Because, the religious spirit is the most powerful in Satan’s army. The religious spirit is the worst—the vilest—the most potent of devils. Why? Because its assignment is not the world, but the church itself.

Demons are working the streets to foment riots, killing, and chaos. The religious spirit works on the inside of the church, particularly among preachers, to permanently render them powerless. It is this demon of religion that blinds us to the towering injustice being levelled at us. This ban is the most insane double-standard ever.

Democrat Governors and Mayors encourage BLM marches and demonstrations, but church singing is banned because it supposedly spreads viral vapors. But aren’t vapors present when BLM marchers are shouting things like “kill the cops” at the top of their lungs, as they march shoulder to shoulder?

Bill de Blasio has this explanation for the madness, “Calls for social justice (by which he means marches) were too important to stop.” The message here is that the church, worshiping God, is not important. They are sending the message, “Don’t sing. We can tell you to do whatever we want.”  But, if we, as the church, can’t draw a line in the sand now, when will we? How far are we going to let them go?

It is this religious devil that makes preachers comply. It is working hard to make traitors out of preachers. Matthew Henry predicted it when he wrote concerning those who were “settled teachers in the church, and had gained reputations as such, but afterward betrayed the truth they had taught, and revolted (turned back) to error…”

He goes on to explain why such a preacher is a prize: “and from such the danger is the greater, because least suspected. One false traitor in the garrison may do more mischief than a thousand avowed enemies (outside).” The damage a preacher can do in this condition is frightening.

There are 3 things a religious spirit brings.

  1. A Hypocritical Spirit. “There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him”” (John 3:1-2).

Nicodemus admitted the miracles of Jesus were undeniable. He and all the Jewish leaders knew who Jesus was. Yet, he came to Christ under the cover of night. Neither he nor the other leaders would take a stand for the truth. They knew the rejection and ridicule they would face. Likewise, a devil whispers in the ear of preachers that they must comply with stupid laws, rather than risk ridicule.

  1. A Territorial Spirit. They must hold onto their place (position). The religious devil drives ministers to protect their place, and their turf. After the resurrection of Lazarus, the religious leaders did not see it as an astounding miracle, only a political threat.

“Then the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered a council and said, “What shall we do? For this Man works many signs. If we let Him alone like this, everyone will believe in Him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place (position) and our nation.” Notice the first thing they worried about was their place, not the nation (John 11:47-48).

This demon makes a man think about his salary, prestige, and his control of people. His first love is gone. His priority is self-preservation. They will not oppose the ban on singing, because they are afraid of losing their place.

“When the profession of Christianity begins to cost men dear, then shall many be offended…” -Matthew Henry. 

  1. Hatred against their own roots. Then He said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched it out, and it was restored as whole as the other. Then the Pharisees went out and plotted against Him, how they might destroy Him.” Everyone was rejoicing, except the leaders. Their Jewish heritage is one of miracle after miracle, but not only were they not rejoicing over this miracle, they wanted to kill Jesus! (Matthew 12:13)

A religious demon drives a minister to hate what he used to love, even to oppose his first love. A religious spirit can actually make a man who once loved the move of God become boiling mad at people who are obeying God, or pressing toward revival.

We all know that 2020 is the year that Satan launched the highest tide of evil in American history. Wave after wave has struck our nation, with the intention of destroying us. Now, the greatest devil of all is at work—the religious spirit among leaders. This devil has come to destroy the people of God from within.

There is nothing worse than to see devils controlling a man that God once used.  And there is nothing more glorious than seeing men and women of God rise up in the Name of Jesus and send this religious devil back to the pit of hell.

It is time for the church of Jesus Christ to sing louder!

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.

HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE DIVISIVE

Donald Trump is divisive. He has to be. He is divisive in the way that a surgeon ‘divides’ a cancer from a patient. He is divisive in the way that a cop ‘divides’ an innocent woman from her attacker. He has been placed in the White House to create a division between us and certain disaster.

He is uncompromising because the other side wants to destroy the United States. The Democrat Party has erased any possibility of compromise because everything America stands for will simply not survive what they will do to us if they are not stopped.

Yes, it is true, that fuzzy-thinking Christians want Trump to be more conciliatory toward his opponents. But it is his opponents, and not Trump, who have made that impossible.  Under the current conditions, a good leader must be divisive.

Jesus talked about being divisive: “Do not think that I have come to bring peace on the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword [of division between belief and unbelief]. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man’s enemies will be the members of his [own] household [when one believes, and another does not]” (Matthew 10:34-36).

Jesus divided truth and error, light and darkness, slavery and liberty. The modern church has so blatantly neglected her duty to American culture up until now, that we have no choice. We must openly speak out against the agenda of the Democrat Party because they have forced our hand, and, more importantly, the hand of God.

Trump is divisive! But let’s take a look at what he is trying to divide us from:

Trump must divide the nation from the Democrat Party’s deadly anti-American mindset: Gabrielle Bruney confirms this mindset. Writing for Esquire Magazine she said, “Trump’s Mount Rushmore Speech was just as terrifyingly bonkers as you’d expect. The President rejected Independence Day weekend unity in favor of fomenting hysteria about “far-left fascism.””

According to Gabrielle, we are only imagining the looting, burning and killings that have been running rampant in dozens of major cities. According to her, there is no nationwide crime wave. There are no leftist hordes wreaking havoc across America—there is no unhinged media propaganda campaign to smear our history—there is no educational brainwashing against American values. It is all in our minds. The worst part is that she believes that because he refuses to deny the existence of the ongoing leftist rampage, Trump is being divisive. Wow…

It is imperative for Trump to divide us from the Democrat Party’s campaign to poison our history: One of Joe’s Biden’s potential picks for running mate is Tammy Duckworth.  Here is what she said on CNN about President Trump’s speech at Mount Rushmore: “He spent all of his time talking about dead traitors.”

The woman who called George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln “dead traitors” is Biden’s idea of a potential Vice President? That tells you everything you need to know about where the Democrat Party stands. They hate America, the Constitution, and those who founded and preserved this nation.

Here’s the key point: Trump’s speech at Mount Rushmore wasn’t hysteria. It wasn’t tyrannical. It was American. That’s why they hated it.

Another thing I am proud that President Trump is dividing us from is the wave of murders, violence, and destruction that is growing daily on every street in America.  Tucker Carlson rightly labelled the masses of violent protesters the “armed militia of the Democrat Party.” That is exactly what they are. The top officials of the Democrat Party are more than sanctioning the fires, looting and killing going on in the streets.

For Christians to be squeamish about Trump’s rightful divisiveness is tragic. I thank God that Donald Trump is wielding a sword. I thank God he is weathering both the insane onslaught of hatred from the Left and the apathy and outright antagonism coming from lukewarm Christians. Believe me, they are both equally painful to him.

 

Finally, imagine a Christian from China who has been imprisoned for his faith. After being set free and being brought to America, what is his first impression of the American church? Most people would guess that he would marvel at our religious freedom. But they would be wrong. No, his reaction would be just the opposite.

He would be horrified that we are blind to what is happening to our country. He would be dumbfounded to see us heading down the exact same road that China took when its people fell into lockstep with the anti-Christ Marxists who came down from the hills looting, burning and pulling down statues. He would be outraged at our apathy toward the chaos and tyranny. And he would be dumbfounded at our hesitation to oppose their godless agenda.

Most of all, that man would be the first to praise the forceful way in which Trump is combating this evil. Yes, Trump is divisive. And thank God he is!

TO THE CHILDREN OF GOD AND THE ENEMIES OF GOD IN AMERICA

America did not just happen. From the first flickering flame in the first heart that yearned to breathe free…God was in the mix. He set the wheels in motion for a band of farmers to unseat the greatest military power in the world. He, not we, are the source of our nation’s greatness.

At this moment blood is running in our streets, and madness reigns in our media, universities and much of the seats of political power. They are desecrating statues and paintings, renaming products, censoring people who won’t surrender to them. They are reeling in the fever of a false righteous indignation.

To the God-haters of America: there will be no peace, truth or justice at the end of your rampage. You are not erasing the blood of the past. You are smearing a fresh coat of it with your own bloody brush. You are adding new shame to the old shame. One tyranny intends to erase the other. One racial prejudice is being replaced with another.

Aiding and abetting you, are religious leaders—the very ones who should be standing up to you. Men who parade their cowardice as if it were purity. They kowtow to villains in order to appear holy. Trampling on all the vows they made to God, in exchange for an unholy truce.

Google, Facebook and Twitter abuse their power to silence millions—especially the work of God. Will it succeed?

BEWARE! He who guards America’s destiny does not sleep or slumber. He is laughing at your plans. He knows who has hijacked the ideals and innocence of the young and made them pawns in a wicked scheme. The Holy One knows you lust for a weakened America so that you can enforce your dream of world domination.

But God holds a surprise. A surprise for His children and a surprise for His enemies. His plan cannot be resisted. It cannot be defeated. Any and all sophisticated arguments against it will disintegrate. No counsel formed against the Lord will succeed. America’s supernatural origin guarantees there will be an intervention.

Gamaliel’s warning, found in Acts 5:38-39, holds true for the enemies of God in America: “And now I say to you, keep away from these men and let them alone; for if this plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing; but if it is of God, you cannot overthrow it—lest you even be found to fight against God.”

I solemnly warn you. Take your hands of the church. Take your hands off the Bill of Rights. So far you have contended with fearful politicians and confused preachers, but the Holy God of heaven is stirring Himself. He will not let America go down without a fight. And Gamaliel was correct—you will find yourself fighting against God Himself.

To the discouraged child of God, to the disheartened preacher, and to the remnant of God in America, O you His little ones, He intends to give you the Kingdom.  At this hour, God is separating, training, emboldening, infusing, indwelling, empowering, and instructing the special weapons of love that are uniquely equipped for this battle for the soul of America.

God has sent His signal. Let all who Name His Name depart from evil and prepare for battle. We have no option. Spurgeon wrote, “We must never dream of terms or truce with evil. To suppose that we can let him alone, and all will be well, is a deadly error. We must fight or perish: evil will slay us if we do not slay it. Our only safety will lie in a determined, vigorous opposition to sin, whatever shape it assumes, whatever it may threaten, whatever it may promise. The Holy Ghost alone can maintain in us this enmity to sin.”

The Holy Spirit is roaring out to every soldier of Christ who dwells in America: Take courage! Do not be dismayed. Nothing about this rain of evil that has fallen since the day Trump became President is a surprise to God—or a threat to God.

The Body of Christ in America is like Paul the Apostle on the island of Miletus. A viper sank its fangs and injected lethal venom into Paul. The islanders thought he must be a criminal who justice had caught up with, and that he would die. But Paul merely shook the serpent off into the fire.

Child of God! Shake off your fears into the fire. Shake off your discouragement into the fire. Shake off every last lie that exalts itself against your destiny. The American Church of Jesus Christ—the real church: Wake up! Behold, there are infinitely more on our side than there are on their side.

The Gospel shall yet be honored in America. Miracles will flow like a river. The fact that Satan is screaming just the opposite in your ear—that is proof that what I am telling you is true.

Now, I want you to get up on your feet. I want you to raise holy hands to God and give Him your doubt. Give Him your fear. The mighty God—the awesome God—the everlasting God is about to give you the very miracle that He has given to chosen vessels throughout history. He is about to turn you into a warrior—a warrior who will cause demons not only to tremble but to let loose of lost souls and remove their grip from a dying nation!

Vessels of Fire and Glory

Vessels of Fire and Glory is Mario’s newest book. It reached number one on Amazon among all Spirit-filled books. John Kilpatrick who led the Pensacola Revival said this after he read Vessels of Fire and Glory: “As I read the manuscript for Mario Murillo’s new book, Vessels of Fire and Glory, I said to myself, “Finally!” Mario has measured the church and the nation in this season and did not hold anything back. His honesty is like the sun rising inside a dark cave. This release is a paradox—it is sobering and refreshing; it is symptoms and the cure. I believe this revivalist has penned a treatise that should be in the hands of all who lead the work of God.”

 Edgewise

Here is a book about the end times with a totally different approach. It does not focus on how the world will end but on how to live as the curtain comes down on humanity. Powerful, practical, and encouraging.

NO. THE BIBLE DOES NOT TELL YOU TO OBEY BAD LAWS

Gavin Newsom ordered churches not to sing and worship. I can’t think of a worse idea than to stop praise and worship because Gavin Newsom told you to. It’s time  to wake up to the sad truth that California has declared war on the church. They were aggressively oppressing Christians in California long before Covid 19.

This latest travesty is just using the Pandemic as an excuse. This is just a test to see how the public reacts to Christian persecution. If we do not vehemently reject this tyranny, it will embolden Democrat leaders in other states to do the same thing. It is time to resist.

Doesn’t the Bible tell us to obey them no matter what? Absolutely not. And it is shocking how many believers do not know their Bible or have been given false teaching.

There is no verse in the Bible that tells you to obey evil government or laws. And again, if we don’t realize that now, it will soon be too late.

Let me prove to you beyond any doubt that the Bible tells us what we must do in the face of wicked government and laws.

First, I will expose a pathetic heresy that many believers commonly accept as truth. This is a widespread excuse for submitting when we should disobey.

Here is an example of someone who wrote me while under the influence of this false teaching:

“Out of curiosity, how do you justify your argument against obeying the government when you read Romans 13:1-7. The government Paul was talking about was even more oppressive than anything we can imagine. You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government. And, what was Paul’s response? Did he call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above, he said, in the face of a brutal government, to obey. He didn’t say obey if your rights are recognized, he said obey. The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.”

 

This defense of submission to evil government is riddled with error and falsehoods. Here are my responses to selected quotes:

1.You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government.” First the writer tells us to obey evil laws, but then mentions martyrs. They never would have been martyred had they not broken the law by being Christians.

2. Then he asks, “Did (Paul) call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above…” The truth is, Paul did all of the above. “Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out” (Acts 16:37).

3. And finally, the zinger—the heresy that has sidelined the Body of Christ in the hour when we are most needed: “The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.” Totally untrue. William Wilberforce was a Christian who used his faith in Jesus to abolish slavery in England. In fact, believers throughout history have created child labor laws, health regulations, and have exposed injustice, and corruption. It is safe to say that Christians are more responsible for influencing government, bringing about reform by forcing laws to be changed, and standing up for justice, than any other group in history.

So how did this writer get it so wrong? By doing what so many do. Isolating one set of verses, taking them out of context, and arriving at a conclusion that looks holy, but is in fact, pure and simple fear.

Let’s look at the verses that have been violated:

“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore, you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor (Romans 13:1-7).

It seems to say that we are to honor government in every form, right? Wrong. To demonstrate what Paul is saying I offer this example. Say some parents leave the house, and leave the oldest child in charge. The child is given strict instructions not to open the door for anyone, except for a postal messenger whom they are expecting to deliver an important package that day.

The parents tell the child, “He will have blonde hair. He is wearing blue jeans and a white shirt. Don’t let anyone else in.” So later, a man with black hair, a blue shirt, and black slacks knocks on the door claiming to be the messenger with the package. Do they let him in? Of course not.

Lost in all the quoting of this verse on submission to government is the most important part: The description of the ruling authority. The Bible tells us what they are wearing! Look at the description:

1.They are not a terror to good works. Any government that terrorizes the innocent is not of God. How can you say that Hitler was God’s will for Germany? Hitler and other tyrants are in fact the ones being warned that there were God appointed governments who would destroy them: “But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.”  That is why the just powers of the world rose up and destroyed the Nazis.

2. They praise good works. Authorities that are endorsed by God do not hate or oppose Christian activity. They are the ones who—even if they are not Christian themselves—do not insult soul winning or fight the work of God. They are the cops, teachers, politicians who are glad that children are getting out of gangs and off of drugs.

3. You must be subject for the sake of conscience. When it becomes tricky, is when government is a mixture of right and wrong. Jesus said of the Pharisees, “Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, but do not do” (Matthew 23:3).

Do what they say, but don’t partake of their hypocrisy. Watch them for that moment when they cross the line and come between you and your God.  Just as our conscience should drive us to obey the law, we should also know when our conscience tells us not to obey an evil law.

Here’s when Peter reached that tipping point, speaking to those very same Pharisees: “So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:18-20).

And again, in Acts 5:29, “Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.””

God not only does not endorse evil government: He will have no part in it. “Can a corrupt throne be allied with you—a throne that brings on misery by its decrees? The wicked band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death” (Psalm 94:20). There is your answer. A corrupt throne (government) cannot be allied with God.

The Amplified Bible (1974) puts it this way: “Can a throne of destruction be allied with You, one which frames and devises mischief by decree [under the sacred name of law]?”  How much clearer can it be than this?  It proves that laws can be evil and cannot be allied with God.

In fact, evil laws are the worst form of sin. They provide legitimacy to evil.  Matthew Henry said, “Iniquity is daring enough even when human laws are against it, which often prove too weak to give an effectual check to it; but how insolent, how mischievous, is it when it is backed by a law! Iniquity is not the better, but much the worse, for being enacted by law; nor will it excuse those that practice it to say that they did but do as they were bidden.”

Notice how at the end, Henry says we can’t use the excuse that we were just obeying the law.  That is why Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

The laws being created by Democrats, using the coronavirus as an excuse, are far worse than the virus itself because, unlike the virus, those new laws become permanent.  It is time for the church to wake up and take action, beginning with voting the evildoers out of office and quit calling our submission a godly thing, when it is just a cowardly thing.

“WHO WILL RISE UP FOR ME AGAINST THE EVILDOERS? WHO WILL STAND UP FOR ME AGAINST THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY?” (Psalm 94:16).

MOUNT RUSHMORE AND WHITE SUPREMACY

Democrats say that celebrating the 4th of July at Mount Rushmore glorifies White Supremacy. Well they finally did it. Democrats have reached racial critical mass—chain reaction racism—total racism. That is because Democrats see racism is everywhere, in everything, and in everybody.

Democrats can now tarnish any American tradition no matter how sacred or innocent by labeling it as racist.

The following is a tweet from the Democrat Party that appeared briefly and then was taken down, because even they realized how absurd it is:

“Trump has disrespected Native communities time and again. He’s attempted to limit their voting rights and blocked critical pandemic relief. Now he’s holding a rally glorifying White Supremacy at Mount Rushmore — a region once sacred to tribal communities.”

To begin with, Trump is not the one who has disrespected America, attempted to limit voting rights, or blocked pandemic relief. That is fake news. But that is what we have come to expect from Democrats. We expect lies and hoaxes such as the Russia collusion, the ridiculous Impeachment, and now: White Supremacy.

White supremacy is the latest hoax. The latest fake label. The evil Left is attempting to ram it down our throats and threatening anyone who doesn’t jump on the bandwagon.

Let me ask you:

When multibillion-dollar corporation Quaker Oats quakes and changes the name of their pancake syrup; when a cosmetic colossus like L’Oréal removes the word ‘whitening’ from their products; when Disney changes all reference to their movie The Song of the South from their ride out of fear; when Verizon, Coca Cola and others combine to cut $7 Billion in advertising in order to force “racial justice” because Facebook ran a pro-Trump ad; when the NFL, without even being asked, volunteers to replace the National Anthem with the Black National Anthem; when governments squash churches, but allow mass demonstrations; when police are told to stand down, while buildings are burning, statues of historic figures are torn down, and small businesses are looted; when students campaign to cancel Abraham Lincoln because they say he ‘didn’t love black people’: what do you have?

No. I mean besides insanity, and beyond hypocrisy— what do you have? Besides intellectual bedlam, and historical revisionism, I mean. What do you have?  I will tell you the one thing you absolutely do not have: White Supremacy. None of these things could ever happen in a white supremacist nation. 

In a racist nation, you would not be daily scolded by Whole Foods: “Racism has no place here. Racism and discrimination of any kind have no place at Whole Foods Market. We support the Black community and meaningful change in the world.” Or Delta Airlines, declaring that “systemic racism is present in all functions of our society.” Corporations are falling all over each other to win the “woke” contest. Who knew that equality could be so profitable in a ‘racist’ nation?

Then there’s Joe Biden.  His lies actually rise to the level of science fiction. He said that 120 million people worldwide have died of coronavirus, and 150 million Americans were killed by guns. OH, NO! THAT MEANS ONLY A FRACTION OF AMERICA IS STILL ALIVE!!

Can he top that? Well, of course he can.

Last August, while on the campaign trail, Biden claimed that, “Everything the President says and has done encourages White Supremacy.” Let’s unpack that statement. Everything Donald Trump says and does encourages White Supremacy. When he sleeps, he encourages White Supremacy. When he eats he encourages White Supremacy. Everything he does consciously and unconsciously promotes White Supremacy.

Except of course, when he made life better for minorities than any President in modern history.

How far will this madness go? That depends on the church. But many are asleep. None more so than the pastors who believe they are ‘woke.’ They dutifully intone the ‘black lives matter’ mantra, and foolishly march in lockstep with truly bad people—people who do not care anything about black lives. People who admit they are “trained Marxists.” Marxism has killed 100 million people. That’s not a Joe Biden statistic…that is a fact. These preachers have been duped—taken in by their own need for acceptance, intimidated by their own fears.

Think about it! Those they are rooting for are atheist Marxists—the avowed enemies of Jesus Christ. BLM and Antifa are laughing at them behind their backs.

This is where we must draw the line. We simply cannot permit a desecration of the 4th of July and Mount Rushmore.  This is where the church must wake up to her rightful duty to oppose this destruction of our freedom.

Jesus once rebuked a generation for refusing to see the signs of the times:

“He also said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you immediately say, ‘It is going to rain,’ and that is how it turns out. And when [you see that] a south wind is blowing, you say, ‘It will be a hot day,’ and it happens. You hypocrites (play-actors, pretenders)! You know how to analyze and intelligently interpret the appearance of the earth and sky [to forecast the weather], but why do you not intelligently interpret this present time? “And why do you not even on your own initiative judge what is right?” (Luke 12:54-57).

Jesus is asking the American church to see what Satan is plainly doing to America. Today they are focused on racism, tomorrow it will be on whatever they need it to be.

No matter how righteously they package it, this is a takeover. Bob Dylan said, “The enemy I see, wears a cloak of decency.” You should never admit to white supremacy that doesn’t exist, to live peaceably as a slave in a tyranny that does exist.

The word of the Lord for this hour is that you have no excuse if you ignore the weather pattern. The coming storm is unmistakable.

You say, “Mario, give me hope!” My hope is anchored in Truth. We must deny the racist label and refuse to be silent just because we are afraid of being called racists. You and God know the truth.

My prayer is that Trump’s rally at Mount Rushmore will be the electrode paddles that restart the American heart and soul. If you want hope…discern the times, refuse to join in the deception, and obey the voice of the Lord, no matter the cost—America is at stake!

THE FEEBLE RESPONSE OF CHRISTIAN LEADERS

It is just about the most disheartening thing I can think of. An army ready to fight, being held back by a reluctant general. Yet, that is precisely what we are watching happen to millions of American Christians. We are ready, but our leaders are not. So many believers just can’t fathom why celebrity pastors are not pushing back against the destruction of the United States.

What is unfolding on our streets is a direct parallel to the early stages of the Reign of Terror during the French revolution.  The Committee of Public Safety was set up on April 6, 1793. What a perfect name, right? A series of massacres and numerous public executions took place in response to revolutionary fervor, anti-clerical sentiment, and spurious accusations of treason by the bloodthirsty Maximilien Robespierre.

These preachers are condoning a movement where only certain black lives matter—revolutionaries who ignore the vast numbers of blacks who are being killed on the streets of Democrat-run cities, each and every day.

Here is what these preachers are giving credibility to: Democrats behaving like plantation owners, staging a mock revolution that is designed to numb their victims back into chains. They have no intention of setting their ‘property’ free.

They hate Trump because the economy boomed and offered minorities a way out. Suddenly, blacks could exit the cycle of poverty that the Left had designed to hold them in their “place.” Not only out of poverty, but out of victimhood, and out of the Democrat Party. That is why you see Black Conservatives like Candace Owens and David Harris being vilified.

Nothing new here. They did it to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. In 1991 he said to the Democrat controlled Senate, “And from my standpoint, as a black American, as far as I’m concerned it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you.”

From toppling statues to sanctifying pancake syrup, the mobs on our streets and the mobs in our corporate penthouses, are repeating the madness of The Committee of Public Safety. The early accusations of racism are expanding into schizophrenic delusions. A vortex of hatred is dragging reason, decency, and civilization itself, into the abyss.

Nancy Pelosi who, through the alchemy of science, is actually becoming a statue herself, silently approves of the toppling, the defacing, the burning, the desecration, and the madness on our streets. That, my friend, is to be expected. But the behavior of Christian Leaders is shocking. How can they be silent? How can they be in agreement with extremists and timidly repeat the lies of the Left?

I am going to offer three reasons why they are not doing their duty.

1. Preachers are virtue-signaling. Virtue-signaling is the popular modern habit of indicating that one has virtue by merely expressing disgust or favor for certain political ideas or cultural happenings. They will chant Black Lives Matter without any regard to the insipid and dishonest use of that term. It is a cheap way of gaining acceptance, but it puts their congregation and the freedom of the nation at risk.

One spirit-filled pastor explained his involvement with Black Lives Matter by saying, “Fighting racism is an extension of the Kingdom of God.” Only he isn’t fighting racism. As I already showed you, the BLM movement is advancing racism, and perpetuating the despair and victim-hood in the Black Community.

But this pastor doesn’t want to think that far ahead. He is only doing what the Pharisees did, as Jesus spoke to one of them: “Then the Lord said to him, “Now you Pharisees make the outside of the cup and dish clean, but your inward part is full of greed and wickedness” (Luke 11:39). In the same way, you preachers refuse to look beyond the outward appearance of righteousness to see the real wickedness.

2. These preachers are silent because they want to preserve their empires. How shocking is that! They can work with Democrats because they understand the need to numb their consciences and cast out convictions in order to preserve the status quo. Their Bible is tossed out. Their calling is tossed out. Their idol is the magnificent campus they have built.

One of these leaders—a spirit-filled pastor said, “Mario Murillo is hurting the Body of Christ by supporting Donald Trump.”  That statement is pure deflection, and he knows it. He said that, in order to clear himself of his own failure, and his own responsibility and knowledge that it is not the Body of Christ I am hurting, it is his empire.

This man knows nothing about what is hurting the Body of Christ. Worst of all, he doesn’t have a clue about the big hurt that is coming to the Body of Christ if Donald Trump is not reelected.

I would love to hear his take on the only alternative, Joe Biden—a hand puppet for the most dangerous people on earth.

3. A lack of courage. In one city, the pastor of a large church told me that they would not back our tent crusade if I mentioned Donald Trump. After several minutes of treating me like a mushroom—that is, keeping me in the dark and putting fertilizer over me—he admitted the truth. There were liberals in his church with money and they would stop tithing if he ever mentioned Trump.

The fear of many pastors appears in their silence, in their reluctance to respond to those who want to fervently pray and speak out for freedom while there is still time. Instead, they will dodge all questions. They will not ask you to vote. They will spiritualize their cowardice in a thousand words of obfuscation. But the bottom line is that the fear of man has them in its snare.

They will say that by speaking out, the government will silence them and they might lose their church. Two things blow that lie out of the water. First, Sir, you are already silenced. You are already muzzled from speaking truth, not by government, but by your own fear. Second, the fastest way for you to lose your church is to allow this growing tyranny to go unchecked.

There can be no doubt that Christian Leaders must unify now. They must unify behind a God-given plan

And finally, to all our readers. This hour calls for fervent, unrelenting prayer. And having prayed we must act. It is a sad, dangerous, and decisive day we are witnessing. It is time for us to lovingly confront those believers and leaders who are remaining silent, and having done so, to act in honest courage. Why are you sitting under a ministry that refuses to do its duty? Why do you continue to support, with your precious seed, a ministry that is aiding and abetting the destruction of America?

Because our nation is at stake, God will now separate the sheep from the goats, and the shepherds from the hirelings. He is going to elevate the believers and preachers who will rise up and obey His call, while at the same time, He will put down the make-believers. To God be the glory!

A MESSAGE TO THE CHILDREN OF GOD AND THE ENEMIES OF GOD IN AMERICA

America did not just happen. From the first flickering flame in the first heart that yearned to breathe free…God was in the mix. He set the wheels in motion for a band of farmers to unseat the greatest military power in the world. He, not we, are the source of our nation’s greatness.

At this moment blood is running in our streets, and madness reigns in our media, universities and much of the seats of political power. They are desecrating statues and paintings, renaming products, censoring people who won’t surrender to them. They are reeling in the fever of a false righteous indignation.

To the God-haters of America: there will be no peace, truth or justice at the end of your rampage. You are not erasing the blood of the past. You are smearing a fresh coat of it with your own bloody brush. You are adding new shame to the old shame. One tyranny intends to erase the other. One racial prejudice is being replaced with another.

Aiding and abetting you, are religious leaders—the very ones who should be standing up to you. Men who parade their cowardice as if it were purity. They kowtow to villains in order to appear holy. Trampling on all the vows they made to God, in exchange for an unholy truce.

Google, Facebook and Twitter abuse their power to silence millions—especially the work of God. Will it succeed?

BEWARE! He who guards America’s destiny does not sleep or slumber. He is laughing at your plans. He knows who has hijacked the ideals and innocence of the young and made them pawns in a wicked scheme. The Holy One knows you lust for a weakened America so that you can enforce your dream of world domination.

But God holds a surprise. A surprise for His children and a surprise for His enemies. His plan cannot be resisted. It cannot be defeated. Any and all sophisticated arguments against it will disintegrate. No counsel formed against the Lord will succeed. America’s supernatural origin guarantees there will be an intervention.

Gamaliel’s warning, found in Acts 5:38-39, holds true for the enemies of God in America: “And now I say to you, keep away from these men and let them alone; for if this plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing; but if it is of God, you cannot overthrow it—lest you even be found to fight against God.”

I solemnly warn you. Take your hands of the church. Take your hands off the Bill of Rights. So far you have contended with fearful politicians and confused preachers, but the Holy God of heaven is stirring Himself. He will not let America go down without a fight. And Gamaliel was correct—you will find yourself fighting against God Himself.

To the discouraged child of God, to the disheartened preacher, and to the remnant of God in America, O you His little ones, He intends to give you the Kingdom.  At this hour, God is separating, training, emboldening, infusing, indwelling, empowering, and instructing the special weapons of love that are uniquely equipped for this battle for the soul of America.

God has sent His signal. Let all who Name His Name depart from evil and prepare for battle. We have no option. Spurgeon wrote, “We must never dream of terms or truce with evil. To suppose that we can let him alone, and all will be well, is a deadly error. We must fight or perish: evil will slay us if we do not slay it. Our only safety will lie in a determined, vigorous opposition to sin, whatever shape it assumes, whatever it may threaten, whatever it may promise. The Holy Ghost alone can maintain in us this enmity to sin.”

The Holy Spirit is roaring out to every soldier of Christ who dwells in America: Take courage! Do not be dismayed. Nothing about this rain of evil that has fallen since the day Trump became President is a surprise to God—or a threat to God.

The Body of Christ in America is like Paul the Apostle on the island of Miletus. A viper sank its fangs and injected lethal venom into Paul. The islanders thought he must be a criminal who justice had caught up with, and that he would die. But Paul merely shook the serpent off into the fire.

Child of God! Shake off your fears into the fire. Shake off your discouragement into the fire. Shake off every last lie that exalts itself against your destiny. The American Church of Jesus Christ—the real church: Wake up! Behold, there are infinitely more on our side than there are on their side.

The Gospel shall yet be honored in America. Miracles will flow like a river. The fact that Satan is screaming just the opposite in your ear—that is proof that what I am telling you is true.

Now, I want you to get up on your feet. I want you to raise holy hands to God and give Him your doubt. Give Him your fear. The mighty God—the awesome God—the everlasting God is about to give you the very miracle that He has given to chosen vessels throughout history. He is about to turn you into a warrior—a warrior who will cause demons not only to tremble but to let loose of lost souls and remove their grip from a dying nation!

From Sesame Street back to Azusa Street

The cry of my heart is that men and women of God, who are cooped up, will get fed up. My hope is that vessels of God, who are locked down, will get fired up. I am asking God to ruin them for anything other than His work!

I am hoping that God will hit them with a combination punch.  A straight jab that will awaken anger over the spirit of death and despair that is suffocating the greatest nation on earth. Followed by a right hook that will disgust them into admitting they have been living in fear of what people think.

I want you to see Satan yelling, “Yo’ Mamma!” right at you. Pastors, I want you to burn all your books on church growth, and start praying against the sorry guru who suckered you into using their putrefying programs.

Get sick! Not with a virus, but with yourself. Sick for letting boards and deacons scare you. Sick because you continually fretted over who might get offended. Sick because you stare out at the parking lot, counting cars, instead of looking up to heaven. And sick of the sermons that seem as if they were designed for Big Bird and the Cookie Monster.

Yeah, I’ll say it: My cry is that when the doors of Spirit-filled churches reopen, they will leave Sesame Street and run back to Azusa Street.

Nothing in this blog is radical. Nothing in this blog is negative or divisive. The problem with me is that I have been around too long and have seen too much. There is nothing more dangerous than an individual who understands why they are a Pentecostal. There is no one more unstoppable than the person who has been baptized in the Holy Spirit and who has experienced the tongues of fire.

I want you to rage against limp-wristed preaching, fog machines, romantic lighting, and that atmosphere that’s about as life giving as the waiting room at a DMV.

A scourge from hell has attacked our nation! That is why we need heroes! Thank God for the first responders, the courageous nurses, and the doctors. Thank God for our President who has been valiantly battling the swamp creatures.  But it is time for a new group of heroes to appear: Christians who are full of the fire of God!

The testimony of Azusa Street needs to hit us like a Mack Truck.  William Seymour, who oversaw the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at the turn of the century, had none of our advantages, but we have none of his results. The glory and presence of God turned a rundown hall into a magnet for the entire world.  Today, that movement is 650 million strong.

Modern experts have tried to teach us how to trick people into coming to church, but at Azusa Street, they stampeded to the altar, drawn by God alone—without any tricks. Brother Seymour began the most powerful outpouring of the Holy Spirit in modern history in an old rented building that was once a stable. It was so primitive that many times he would pray with his head hidden between two wooden milk crates that served as his pulpit. Then heaven would burst open and the presence of God would fall on those present. It wasn’t a choreographed meeting. It wasn’t a slick presentation. It was raw glory.

Don’t be the fool who says modern society is too sophisticated for Pentecost. “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 AMPLIFIED, 1974 ed.)

I love that translation! Destroying sophisticated arguments! Nothing new has come down the pike that can withstand the conviction of the Holy Spirit. The devil can’t form a weapon that will prosper against a truly Spirit-filled army.

Oh God, let it be! Let frustration build like magma in a volcano! Let the silliness of our human designs task us. Let our old sermon notes torture us. Awaken, O Lord, the greatest sleeping giant in the world—The American Spirit-filled church of Jesus Christ!

THE CHURCH IS WASTING THE GREATEST OPEN DOOR I HAVE EVER SEEN

Demonstrators are about to hold a massive rally in Washington D.C. Maybe one million people. This gathering will flagrantly violate the current pandemic orders. You can count on it, the protest will take place, but there will not be a single arrest made.

Meanwhile, the church stays virtually out of sight, in order to comply with rules that are nothing but a farce, pure and simple. I have never seen so many American Christians being slapped around like this.

Yet, in spite of all of this madness—and as impossible as it may seem—there is a door that has opened. There is, in fact, something earth-shaking that we can do. We are sitting on an opportunity so astounding that it could define the church in a way we have not seen since the Jesus Movement.

What we need to do is stage a rally—a rally with at least 100,000 believers. What a statement we could make! The most amazing part about this idea is how completely doable it is.

I know of just 10 ministries who, with a little backbone, and just a few phone calls, could put together such a rally within a few weeks.

And, ahem, what about you wealthy Christian artists who have taken home a boatload of money from concerts? Why not give something back? Why not use the fame God has given you to muster legions of believers to a righteous cause? Not only can we do this rally, I believe it is a matter of life and death that we do it. Evil has made it’s statement. What about us?

Sadly, even as I propose this, I am convinced these ministries will never listen to me. I am just that ‘crazy evangelist.’ But I didn’t write this because I thought they would listen—I wrote this because God told me to write it. I will leave the outcome in His hands, trusting Him to let this fall into the right hands.

Let me answer all detractors.

-If you say we shouldn’t stage this event because it is against the law: It is the shutdown of the church that was against the law, in spite of what Chief Justice John Roberts said. Anyway, at this point, with all the protests, the rules that define all the hoops churches must jump through, just to meet on Sunday, are ludicrous.

The recent demonstrations taking place all over the nation prove the shutdown was bogus. Now, we, the church, must let go of fear—we must challenge this double- standard with a rally of our own. Let’s invoke the Constitution, not the criminal edicts of rogue governors in blue states.

God has people everywhere, even in the highest level of State Governments. Surely, someone reading this is in government, and has the clout to get this rally off the ground.

-If you say that our actions will be misunderstood, then you are not thinking it through: No matter what the church does, or has ever done, misunderstanding is unavoidable. Later in this blog, I will lay out what I believe needs to be said at the rally. We need to have a different message than the one everyone else is chanting.

-The government will shut us down, and some of us might get arrested. Yeah, and how would that look?  MAYBE IT’S WHAT AMERICA NEEDS TO SEE! That would be the visual the leftists can’t risk playing out on the evening news. That is why I know we will not be arrested and we will not be stopped.

Deal with it! It is not the government, the media or even the devil that is holding the church back, at this point—it is our own fears.  We didn’t used to scare this easy. We have an American legacy for rallies. Below is the picture of Billy Graham speaking to well over 150,000 people in Times Square New York City.

So, what shall we say at the rally? First, I will tell you what we should never say:

We should not waste time repenting of ‘white privilege.’ Leaders who do that, look ridiculous. Leave that repentance to those who are truly racist. If we take the race route, we will just become background noise. We need to tell America something they don’t already know.

A vast number of rational people believe that “white privilege” is itself a racist term. Those who avidly believe in white privilege will never accept your apology, anyway. To conservatives, you’ll come off like a grandstanding buffoon. To the Left, you are just feeding them a sound-bite that will be used against you, later.

We should not pontificate about our nation’s historical sins.  This is not a time to impress America with how “woke” you are, neither about history nor the evils that have been done by our ancestors. Again, that is just tedious droning.

We should not offer the tired platitude that: “while we hate the sin, we love the sinner.” Why squander valuable time reassuring people that we are nice?

And what is the big reason we should avoid all of these subjects?  It is that they are merely attempts at making us look good. They do not glorify God.

What then should we say at this rally?

1. A prayer. We should offer a prayer of repentance to God and not to man. The church with one voice should cry out to God for mercy. We should ask the Lord to hear our cry above the noise of the wickedness of violence, perversion, atheism, the betrayal of lukewarm believers, and the division that exists among denominations.

2. A declaration. One that says “justice can only come through the love of God.” We should declare the words of Martin Luther King: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

And that takes us directly to the final message.

3. We need to tell them that Jesus died on the Cross for them. Ever since we quit mentioning the Cross, we have lost power and influence among Americans. The message that Christ died for us all, softens the hearts of many who are argumentative about God. The devil has convinced us that we dare not mention the Cross. What a lie! It is the Cross that touches hearts. It is the Cross that proves Black Lives Matter.

Spurgeon said this: “Men stand out against the law of God, and defy the vengeance of God; but the love of God in Christ Jesus disarms them. The Holy Spirit causes men to yield through the softening influence of the Cross. A bleeding Savior makes men throw down their weapons of rebellion. ‘If he loves me so,’ they say, ‘I cannot do other than love him in return.’”

If we could resist the temptation to wander into the swamp of guilt and liberalism, we could simply make the case for God’s power. We would then overcome the enemy by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of our testimony.

Time is running out. If the church does nothing, we are on a slippery slope from which there is no recovery. Somebody who has the chops to do this: please obey God, before it is too late. As John Adams once said, “Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.”

NO. THERE IS NO VERSE IN THE BIBLE THAT TELLS YOU TO OBEY EVIL GOVERNMENT OR LAWS.

No. There is no verse in the Bible that tells you to obey evil government or laws. If we don’t realize that now, it will soon be too late. I want to prove to you beyond any doubt that the Bible tells us what we must do in the face of wicked government and laws.

First, I want to show you the weak and pathetic heresy that many believers have come to accept as truth. I want you to see the widespread excuse that is being used for submitting when we should disobey.

Here is an example.  Someone commented to me:

“Out of curiosity, how do you justify your argument against obeying the government when you read Romans 13:1-7. The government Paul was talking about was even more oppressive than anything we can imagine. You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government. And, what was Paul’s response? Did he call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above, he said, in the face of a brutal government, to obey. He didn’t say obey if your rights are recognized, he said obey. The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.”

 

This defense of submission to evil government is riddled with error and falsehoods. Here are my responses to selected quotes:

1.You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government.” First the writer tells us to obey evil laws, but then mentions martyrs. They never would have been martyred had they not broken the law by being Christians.

2. Then he asks, “Did (Paul) call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above…” The truth is, Paul did all of the above. “Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out” (Acts 16:37).

3. And finally, the zinger—the heresy that has sidelined the Body of Christ in the hour when we are most needed: “The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.” Totally untrue. William Wilberforce was a Christian who used his faith in Jesus to abolish slavery in England. In fact, believers throughout history have created child labor laws, health regulations, and have exposed injustice, and corruption. It is safe to say that Christians are more responsible for influencing government, bringing about reform by forcing laws to be changed, and standing up for justice, than any other group in history.

So how did this writer get it so wrong? By doing what so many do. Isolating one set of verses, taking them out of context, and arriving at a conclusion that looks holy, but is in fact, pure and simple fear.

Let’s look at the verses that have been violated:

“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore, you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor (Romans 13:1-7).

It seems to say that we are to honor government in every form, right? Wrong. To demonstrate what Paul is saying I offer this example. Say some parents leave the house, and leave the oldest child in charge. The child is given strict instructions not to open the door for anyone, except for a postal messenger whom they are expecting to deliver an important package that day.

The parents tell the child, “He will have blonde hair. He is wearing blue jeans and a white shirt. Don’t let anyone else in.” So later, a man with black hair, a blue shirt, and black slacks knocks on the door claiming to be the messenger with the package. Do they let him in? Of course not.

Lost in all the quoting of this verse on submission to government is the most important part: The description of the ruling authority. The Bible tells us what they are wearing! Look at the description:

1.They are not a terror to good works. Any government that terrorizes the innocent is not of God. How can you say that Hitler was God’s will for Germany? Hitler and other tyrants are in fact the ones being warned that there were God appointed governments who would destroy them: “But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.”  That is why the just powers of the world rose up and destroyed the Nazis.

2. They praise good works. Authorities that are endorsed by God do not hate or oppose Christian activity. They are the ones who—even if they are not Christian themselves—do not insult soul winning or fight the work of God. They are the cops, teachers, politicians who are glad that children are getting out of gangs and off of drugs.

3. You must be subject for the sake of conscience. When it becomes tricky, is when government is a mixture of right and wrong. Jesus said of the Pharisees, “Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, but do not do” (Matthew 23:3).

Do what they say, but don’t partake of their hypocrisy. Watch them for that moment when they cross the line and come between you and your God.  Just as our conscience should drive us to obey the law, we should also know when our conscience tells us not to obey an evil law.

Here’s when Peter reached that tipping point, speaking to those very same Pharisees: “So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:18-20).

And again, in Acts 5:29, “Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.””

God not only does not endorse evil government: He will have no part in it. “Can a corrupt throne be allied with you—a throne that brings on misery by its decrees? The wicked band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death” (Psalm 94:20). There is your answer. A corrupt throne (government) cannot be allied with God.

The Amplified Bible (1974) puts it this way: “Can a throne of destruction be allied with You, one which frames and devises mischief by decree [under the sacred name of law]?”  How much clearer can it be than this?  It proves that laws can be evil and cannot be allied with God.

In fact, evil laws are the worst form of sin. They provide legitimacy to evil.  Matthew Henry said, “Iniquity is daring enough even when human laws are against it, which often prove too weak to give an effectual check to it; but how insolent, how mischievous, is it when it is backed by a law! Iniquity is not the better, but much the worse, for being enacted by law; nor will it excuse those that practice it to say that they did but do as they were bidden.”

Notice how at the end, Henry says we can’t use the excuse that we were just obeying the law.  That is why Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

The laws being created by Democrats, using the coronavirus as an excuse, are far worse than the virus itself because, unlike the virus, those new laws become permanent.  It is time for the church to wake up and take action, beginning with voting the evildoers out of office and quit calling our submission a godly thing, when it is just a cowardly thing.

“WHO WILL RISE UP FOR ME AGAINST THE EVILDOERS? WHO WILL STAND UP FOR ME AGAINST THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY?” (Psalm 94:16).

Vessels of Fire and Glory

Vessels of Fire and Glory is Mario’s newest book. It reached number one on Amazon among all Spirit-filled books. John Kilpatrick who led the Pensacola Revival said this after he read Vessels of Fire and Glory: “As I read the manuscript for Mario Murillo’s new book, Vessels of Fire and Glory, I said to myself, “Finally!” Mario has measured the church and the nation in this season and did not hold anything back. His honesty is like the sun rising inside a dark cave. This release is a paradox—it is sobering and refreshing; it is symptoms and the cure. I believe this revivalist has penned a treatise that should be in the hands of all who lead the work of God.”

 Edgewise

Here is a book about the end times with a totally different approach. It does not focus on how the world will end but on how to live as the curtain comes down on humanity. Powerful, practical, and encouraging.
