THAT GOLDEN MOMENT

Maybe it will be this Sunday morning. That golden event that many experts, even those on the Left, say would almost certainly guarantee Trump’s reelection by a landslide. It is a moment that should have come a long time ago. I would rank it at the top of the list of long overdue justice.

What is that Golden Moment? It is that bright Sunday morning when—with one voice and one heart—tens of thousands of Christian leaders stand in their pulpit and endorse Donald Trump for President, and insist that their congregations register to vote. Such a moment would spell certain doom for the Socialist agenda.

How is possible that this has not yet happened?  You see Franklin Graham openly endorsing Trump. You hear Pastor John MacArthur going so far as to say you are probably not a true Christian if you do not vote for Trump.

Yet, and still, that Golden Moment has not come. The counterfeit, however, has come. A few hundred ministers came out today in favor of Biden. Their ludicrous explanation was that we need moral leadership. I am sorry, but making Biden and the Democrats the moral leaders of America is like asking a weasel to guard the chicken coop.

Talk about moral leadership dysphoria! No one embodies it more than Biden-supporter, Rev. Raphael Warnock, pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. The church that was pastored by both Martin Luther King, Sr. and Jr.

Warnock claims to be a Christian Pastor, but he believes that abortion is a “human right” and that it is “something that the richest nation in the world provides for its citizens.” Warnock added: “I think that human agency and freedom is consistent with my view as a minister.” In other words, abortions are Christian.

Warnock’s comment drew the ire of at least one prominent African-American Christian: “I’d like to know what book the candidate uses as their foundation for truth and their guiding principles?” Tony Dungy, a hall-of-fame National Football League coach, wrote in a tweet, “It couldn’t be the Bible.”

“Read Psalm 139.” Dungy added. “If you believe the Bible is the word of God, you can’t read this and conclude that God doesn’t view a baby in the womb as a life.”

Why are the Warnocks of the church world speaking absurdity, while voices of reason remain silent?  Why haven’t those who vowed to serve Christ faithfully, stood in their pulpits and declared the most inescapable duty of the Body of Christ in this dire moment? And beyond that, how is it even possible that they are not instructing their congregations to register and to vote?

I could venture to make some explanations—including the decades of compromise, worship of church attendance, and the pressure to look ‘woke’. But the hour is too late and the situation is too grave to delve into recriminations. What we need is action!

Never have the battle lines been more clearly drawn. Never has the shameless flagrant intention of the Democrat Party been clearer. Never has the threat been greater. Never has there been more at stake than in this election.

With only 64 days left before the most critical election in American history, we must put aside both anger, pride, and false humility. With only a handful of Sundays left, I must implore you: the opportunity for that Golden Moment of the American church speaking with one voice to affirm truth and repudiate Socialism will soon be gone forever.

And you must live the rest of your life with the fact that you remained silent. You will have betrayed all the men and women who died to keep this nation free. You will have destroyed the future of your children and grandchildren. You will have made it possible for millions of babies to die a horrible death.

And you will have to give an account to God for your dereliction of duty to your nation and to your congregation, and your failure to stand against evil.

Millions of Christians are watching and waiting for the one last miracle that will end the nation-killing plans of the Democrat Party. Perhaps you think that those Christians who yearned for you to speak out will forget your silence. Trust me, they will not forget. 

Martin Luther King Junior said, “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

TRYING TO WAKE UP THE CHURCH

For many, it is their familiar nightmare. The house is on fire and as they rush to warn the family, something makes their legs move in slow motion.  They shout, but their voice is muffled. Reaching the bedrooms, they face a new horror. They shake people in their beds but, no matter what they do, they can’t wake them up. Smoke overwhelms the room and then flames engulf the house.  The dreamer wakes up shouting.

That is the feeling many preachers, prophets, and Christians who have had their eyes opened by the Holy Spirit are experiencing right now. They are trying to wake up the church, but they find themselves in a living nightmare. They discover that the majority of believers in America seem to be fast asleep.

It was a painful video for me to watch. A well-known pastor was interviewing his respected guest. That guest travels across our nation trying to take the pulse of the American church. To do this he visits a different church every Sunday.

Speaking emphatically, on the brink of tears, he said that there is no urgency coming from pulpits. He didn’t find a single church where the people were being warned. He saw few calls for repentance and even fewer pastors urging congregants to vote, and no alerting people from the pulpit to the reality of America’s imminent destruction.

What the majority of the church is listening to ignores reality completely.  Even worse, we punish vessels of God for warning us. The voices that are moved by the Holy Spirit to wake up the church are living out the nightmare of the burning house.

Using the story of David and Goliath, I want to show you how we shame voices that call us to repent.

David brought lunch to his brothers, but he couldn’t believe what he was seeing and hearing. Goliath was insulting the armies of God. Then David’s older brother, Eliab, shamed him for the look of outrage on his face. “…Eliab’s anger was aroused against David, and he said, “Why did you come down here? And with whom have you left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know your pride and the insolence of your heart, for you have come down to see the battle”” (1 Samuel 17: 28).

A Christian who is under conviction must discredit the voice calling for repentance. He will accuse those voices that warn the church of pride, insolence, and a morbid mind, saying, “You are just condemning us. Things aren’t as bad as you say. You are just obsessed with negative things.”

Eliab totally misread his kid brother. David had a completely righteous reaction to a disgusting lack of urgency and a cowardly betrayal of the Word of God. Israel stood paralyzed before a foul-mouthed God- hater who needed to be dispatched with haste.

David’s outrage was also directed at how passive and compliant Israel was. Nobody wanted to step up. I have got to say that I too am disgusted at how sheepish preachers are in America.

David’s anger was further fueled because he knew the Lord his God. He knew that all God needed was one man, one truly willing vessel to turn this tragedy into triumph. He could not believe that Israel was allowing this outrage to go on this long and this far.

American Christians have also let it go too far for too long, and now they face the prospect of paying for their apathy with their very lives. The world that Obama, Soros and other enemies of freedom are attempting to manipulate into existence would have, long before now, caused our early settlers to roar out in anger, “I would rather die on my feet, than live on my knees!”

We are shaming the very voices we need to hear. We are rewarding the preachers who are killing us. We are punishing people for obeying God, and doing that puts you in direct opposition to God.

Trump can still lose.

There, I said it. Those who are relying on promises of his reelection, but are taking no drastic action to wake up the rest of the church, are no better than the masses of believers who are fast asleep.

But, enough talk. It is time for action.

To those of you who are punishing the voices that have been sent from God, I issue this solemn warning: You are standing in the way of an aggressive God Who has rolled up His sleeves, and is working to spare America. It is far safer for you to take a nap on the tracks in front of a speeding locomotive.

To all of my fellow warriors who are awake: You have the same heart for America that David had for Israel. You are giant killers. You exist in numbers that are more than enough to undo the damage caused by leftist atheists. You are so much more than enough, that, like David, you don’t need to wait for anyone.

Let’s go get these devils!

THIS NOVEMBER

In November, you will begin to see the judgment of God fall on America. Strangely, it will be a surgical strike that will devastate some, but will pass over others. There are many voices making similar predictions, but my message to you is about what you should do to prepare for the convulsive events that are nearly upon us. My message to you contains both sobering truth and rock-solid encouragement.

Let’s begin with the most important thing to understand about the impending judgment coming in November: It is because of God’s fierce and firm decision to spare America, and because He has decided to save our nation.

It is a fearful truth, however. Shock waves are required to correct our course. Violent upheavals are a part of His rescue mission.

Who are the targets of God’s judgment? False pastors, politicians, celebrities, and cultural influencers. Why are they to be targeted? Because they are the ones responsible for calling down the destruction of our nation. They have shaken their fists at God and boasted that they are going to build an America that hates our Judeo-Christian roots.

Jehovah who has, in the past, winked at their debauchery, has now fixed a deadline for the end of their activities.

A forerunner to this judgment is Donald Trump. While he has been a blessing to the righteous, he has been a scourge to the God-haters. They cannot explain his effectiveness. They cannot understand why they cannot stop him. They are baffled that every attempt to destroy him has backfired.

The architects of a godless America will now see the same force that has kept President Trump from being destroyed, descending in judgment on their empires. Dismiss me if you will, but consider this: What if you see false preachers taken, even while they are speaking their pernicious doctrines? What if billionaires who are seemingly impervious to bankruptcy, are suddenly wiped out? What if nations that are the avowed enemy of America and Israel, suddenly implode economically or by convulsions in nature?

The pandemic and the mass rioting are but the initial birth pangs of this occasion.

Convulsions are indeed coming, but God wants you, the righteous core who are His beloved, to not only endure, but to thrive as a result of this event.

What should you do to be ready for November?

1. Don’t be deceived. As Jesus watched the Twelve admiring the buildings in Jerusalem, He told them that they would all be destroyed, until not one brick would be left on top of another.

So, they asked when this would happen. Matthew 24:3, “Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be?”” They wanted Jesus to give them a date, so they could be prepared. They were only thinking in the natural, and that is the wrong way to prepare.

The question they should have asked is, “How should I prepare?” Jesus’ answer is very telling. He said, “Take heed that no one deceives you” (Mt. 24:4).

The most important gift in this hour is discernment. Satan is bombarding the church with conflicting opinions that range from apathy to outright terror. Neither extreme is the truth! This downpour of opinions is designed by hell to destroy God’s people. 

 

The overuse of hyper-grace and prophetic “words” is by design. The omitting of the Bible and sound teaching is by design. They have come to deceive and render the people of God powerless, prior to the coming storm. Therefore, we must love truth—not foolishness!

 

2. Prepare, but do not panic. God knew this was coming. He is not surprised and He is never fooled. The child of God must remember that their greatest safety is in being right with God. Those who would make you panic, have not been sent from the Lord.

It is important to understand that if you have been seeking God all along, that is, if you are pressing in to know Him and please Him, you have been preparing, even without realizing it. Your safety is already in place.  Matthew 24:6, “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”

3. The righteous will be spared this November by a special intimacy with the Lord, a special clarity of His voice that will lead to special instructions and a special refuge from the coming judgment.

Isaiah 26:20-21, “Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, until the indignation is past. For behold, the Lord comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; the earth will also disclose her blood, and will no more cover her slain.”

 

This verse is so rich, that I will end this message by unpacking some of its treasure.

-Entering into your chambers is not just a room, a bomb shelter or the cabin in the mountains. It is a place in God—a place that makes you disaster-proof, as David wrote in Psalm 41:1, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

-Closing the door behind you means you shut out all of the toxins of this age. It means you slam the door on fear and confusion and every person or vile thing that tries to undermine your relationship with Jesus. When you hear that door slam, a genuine peace and power will clothe you.

-“Hide yourself” is both literal and figurative. God will instruct you on what to buy to be ready and what not to waste your money on. You will hide wisely. Proverbs 22:3, “A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.”

Indeed, God is coming out of His place to punish, but from the spiritual and physical fortress God will make with you, you will hear and maybe even see it, but judgment will pass over you. Just as in the judgment on Egypt, there was darkness where the Egyptians were, but it was light in Goshen where the people of God were living (see Exodus 10:22-23).

Always rest in this promise, “A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you behold, and see the reward of the wicked” (Psalm 91:7-8).

THE BIBLE DOES NOT TELL YOU TO OBEY EVIL LAWS

It’s time  to wake up to the sad truth that Democrat Mayors and Governors have declared war. No only on the church but on innocent citizens. This war compels believers to look again at what the Bible says about evil laws and evil leaders.

Democrats, after using the “Pandemic” as an excuse to illegally lockdown the church, have graduated to condoning riots, looting, and now murder in the name of racial justice. At first, I thought they were testing to see how the public reacts. This no longer explains it. Biden’s poll numbers are dropping because Democrat leaders refuse to take action against the domestic terrorism of Black Lives Matter and Antifa. What we have now is a simple case of stubborn madness.

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, before we sit back and let our nation be destroyed.

Christians during the American Revolution understood that the Bible does not teach us to obey evil laws or leaders. There would be no America if Christian Colonists believed they should obey the evil laws of England.

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).

THE GOLDEN MOMENT

Maybe it will be this Sunday morning. That golden event that many experts, even those on the Left, say would almost certainly guarantee Trump’s reelection by a landslide. It is a moment that should have come a long time ago. I would rank it at the top of the list of long overdue justice.

What is that Golden Moment? It is that bright Sunday morning when—with one voice and one heart—tens of thousands of Christian leaders stand in their pulpit and endorse Donald Trump for President, and insist that their congregations register to vote. Such a moment would spell certain doom for the Socialist agenda.

How is possible that this has not yet happened?  You see Franklin Graham openly endorsing Trump. You hear Pastor John MacArthur going so far as to say you are probably not a true Christian if you do not vote for Trump.

Yet, and still, that Golden Moment has not come. The counterfeit, however, has come. A few hundred ministers came out today in favor of Biden. Their ludicrous explanation was that we need moral leadership. I am sorry, but making Biden and the Democrats the moral leaders of America is like asking a weasel to guard the chicken coop.

Talk about moral leadership dysphoria! No one embodies it more than Biden-supporter, Rev. Raphael Warnock, pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. The church that was pastored by both Martin Luther King, Sr. and Jr.

Warnock claims to be a Christian Pastor, but he believes that abortion is a “human right” and that it is “something that the richest nation in the world provides for its citizens.” Warnock added: “I think that human agency and freedom is consistent with my view as a minister.” In other words, abortions are Christian.

Warnock’s comment drew the ire of at least one prominent African-American Christian: “I’d like to know what book the candidate uses as their foundation for truth and their guiding principles?” Tony Dungy, a hall-of-fame National Football League coach, wrote in a tweet, “It couldn’t be the Bible.”

“Read Psalm 139.” Dungy added. “If you believe the Bible is the word of God, you can’t read this and conclude that God doesn’t view a baby in the womb as a life.”

Why are the Warnocks of the church world speaking absurdity, while voices of reason remain silent?  Why haven’t those who vowed to serve Christ faithfully, stood in their pulpits and declared the most inescapable duty of the Body of Christ in this dire moment? And beyond that, how is it even possible that they are not instructing their congregations to register and to vote?

I could venture to make some explanations—including the decades of compromise, worship of church attendance, and the pressure to look ‘woke’. But the hour is too late and the situation is too grave to delve into recriminations. What we need is action!

Never have the battle lines been more clearly drawn. Never has the shameless flagrant intention of the Democrat Party been clearer. Never has the threat been greater. Never has there been more at stake than in this election.

With only 64 days left before the most critical election in American history, we must put aside both anger, pride, and false humility. With only a handful of Sundays left, I must implore you: the opportunity for that Golden Moment of the American church speaking with one voice to affirm truth and repudiate Socialism will soon be gone forever.

And you must live the rest of your life with the fact that you remained silent. You will have betrayed all the men and women who died to keep this nation free. You will have destroyed the future of your children and grandchildren. You will have made it possible for millions of babies to die a horrible death.

And you will have to give an account to God for your dereliction of duty to your nation and to your congregation, and your failure to stand against evil.

Millions of Christians are watching and waiting for the one last miracle that will end the nation-killing plans of the Democrat Party. Perhaps you think that those Christians who yearned for you to speak out will forget your silence. Trust me, they will not forget. 

Martin Luther King Junior said, “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

SHAMING THOSE WHO ARE TRYING TO WAKE UP THE CHURCH

For many, it is their familiar nightmare. The house is on fire and as they rush to warn the family, something makes their legs move in slow motion.  They shout, but their voice is muffled. Reaching the bedrooms, they face a new horror. They shake people in their beds but, no matter what they do, they can’t wake them up. Smoke overwhelms the room and then flames engulf the house.  The dreamer wakes up shouting.

That is the feeling many preachers, prophets, and Christians who have had their eyes opened by the Holy Spirit are experiencing right now. They are trying to wake up the church, but they find themselves in a living nightmare. They discover that the majority of believers in America seem to be fast asleep.

It was a painful video for me to watch. A well-known pastor was interviewing his respected guest. That guest travels across our nation trying to take the pulse of the American church. To do this he visits a different church every Sunday.

Speaking emphatically, on the brink of tears, he said that there is no urgency coming from pulpits. He didn’t find a single church where the people were being warned. He saw few calls for repentance and even fewer pastors urging congregants to vote, and no alerting people from the pulpit to the reality of America’s imminent destruction.

What the majority of the church is listening to ignores reality completely.  Even worse, we punish vessels of God for warning us. The voices that are moved by the Holy Spirit to wake up the church are living out the nightmare of the burning house.

Using the story of David and Goliath, I want to show you how we shame voices that call us to repent.

David brought lunch to his brothers, but he couldn’t believe what he was seeing and hearing. Goliath was insulting the armies of God. Then David’s older brother, Eliab, shamed him for the look of outrage on his face. “…Eliab’s anger was aroused against David, and he said, “Why did you come down here? And with whom have you left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know your pride and the insolence of your heart, for you have come down to see the battle”” (1 Samuel 17: 28).

A Christian who is under conviction must discredit the voice calling for repentance. He will accuse those voices that warn the church of pride, insolence, and a morbid mind, saying, “You are just condemning us. Things aren’t as bad as you say. You are just obsessed with negative things.”

Eliab totally misread his kid brother. David had a completely righteous reaction to a disgusting lack of urgency and a cowardly betrayal of the Word of God. Israel stood paralyzed before a foul-mouthed God- hater who needed to be dispatched with haste.

David’s outrage was also directed at how passive and compliant Israel was. Nobody wanted to step up. I have got to say that I too am disgusted at how sheepish preachers are in America.

David’s anger was further fueled because he knew the Lord his God. He knew that all God needed was one man, one truly willing vessel to turn this tragedy into triumph. He could not believe that Israel was allowing this outrage to go on this long and this far.

American Christians have also let it go too far for too long, and now they face the prospect of paying for their apathy with their very lives. The world that Obama, Soros and other enemies of freedom are attempting to manipulate into existence would have, long before now, caused our early settlers to roar out in anger, “I would rather die on my feet, than live on my knees!”

We are shaming the very voices we need to hear. We are rewarding the preachers who are killing us. We are punishing people for obeying God, and doing that puts you in direct opposition to God.

Trump can still lose.

There, I said it. Those who are relying on promises of his reelection, but are taking no drastic action to wake up the rest of the church, are no better than the masses of believers who are fast asleep.

But, enough talk. It is time for action.

To those of you who are punishing the voices that have been sent from God, I issue this solemn warning: You are standing in the way of an aggressive God Who has rolled up His sleeves, and is working to spare America. It is far safer for you to take a nap on the tracks in front of a speeding locomotive.

To all of my fellow warriors who are awake: You have the same heart for America that David had for Israel. You are giant killers. You exist in numbers that are more than enough to undo the damage caused by leftist atheists. You are so much more than enough, that, like David, you don’t need to wait for anyone.

Let’s go get these devils!

 

 

 

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

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

WHY 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. And By the Way,  please view this video from Pastor Jack Hibbs.

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!

Why are you praying for protection if you won’t take a stand?

The Sheriff of Douglas County, Nevada, Dan Coverley, has a message for his county’s library: “Due to your support of Black Lives Matter and the obvious lack of support or trust with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, please do not feel the need to call 9-1-1 for help,” Coverley wrote. “I wish you good luck with disturbances and lewd behavior, since those are just some of the recent calls my office has assisted you with in the past.”

I fully relate to this Sheriff’s frustration. And yet, aren’t ‘woke’ American Christians doing the very same thing to God? They support Black Lives Matter—a Marxist/atheist movement. They use the terminology of the Left to appear inclusive, not realizing they are excluding God by their fellowship with darkness. These lukewarm believers are not only soft on abortion and sexual immorality, they also have no regard for the Word of God.

Millions of these ‘woke’ Christians are nervous and anxious about tomorrow. They see the storm we are sailing into. They even pray for protection for themselves and the ones they love—but they won’t take a stand, and they don’t agree with God’s means of saving us. Hypocrites! You want God to save you from the very evil you refuse to stand against!

Wake up! The revolution on our streets is not about black lives or even about hating Trump. The goal is an America without God. This revolution is driven by atheism. Its goal is to get America to turn her back on God.

And remember this: The war on God extends to the giants of media and commerce: Facebook, Google, Amazon, Apple, and Twitter are not neutral. They are actively working toward a world without God. That is why they censor Conservative Christians.

These five God-hating companies have a combined net worth of over $6 Trillion, and unfettered access to the largest audience in human history. That is not even the full extent of it: NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, and hundreds of newspapers also beat the drum for a Godless America.

That is why they tacitly approve of the mayhem on our streets. That is why you see the unravelling of morality and the vilest perversion paraded before our children. You are watching destruction by design. Evil men skew poll numbers and virus statistics in order to take control and drive the church underground.

Israel was guilty of rebelling against God’s law while demanding His protection. They felt entitled to be protected because they kept a form of Godliness. They even fasted. Still, they wondered why God wasn’t hearing their prayers of protection.

Israel cried out to God. “Why have we fasted,” they say, “and You have not seen? Why have we afflicted our souls, and You take no notice?” (Isaiah 58:3)

In the same way, many American Christians wonder why they are empty inside and full of dread. Preachers who refuse to take a stand, wonder why their mouth is full of straw and not revelation from God.

God answered Israel, saying, in essence: ‘Do you want to know why your prayer for protection and inner peace is rejected? Why God doesn’t listen to you anymore?’

The following verses are just as much for woke American Christians today as they were for Israel then: “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy, that it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered perversity. No one calls for justice, nor does any plead for truth. They trust in empty words and speak lies; they conceive evil and bring forth iniquity” (Isaiah 59:1-4).

Ask yourself: Have you called for a truce with evil? Is there blood on your hands because you will not oppose abortion? Are you guilty of not calling for justice and truth?

Are you guilty of using empty lying phrases like, “Black Lives Matter,” and “White silence is violence?”  You know these are falsehoods. You know these violent protestors hate God.

Are you consorting with the avowed enemies of God and asking for God to keep you safe from their agenda?

Worst of all, do you reject Donald Trump? He is the strong medicine America needs. Of course, you would have chosen someone else. Of course, you wanted a smooth voice and a polite enabler. But that is not what this hour calls for! Why do you pray for protection, but refuse to vote for him?

On the other hand, there is a word of protection and joy to the remnant of God. You aren’t meant to be a ‘lone ranger.’ You need to be in a church where the leader is pressing into God, and seeking revival. Find a church with a godly leader who is neither your ‘theological teddy bear,’ nor your ‘pulpit impresario.’

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 two 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 coming 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.

But, woe to those of you who pray for protection, but refuse to take a stand.

In God, there is safety in taking a stand:

And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for just such a time as this?” (Esther 4:13-14)

WHY IS TRUMP DIVISIVE? BECAUSE 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!

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

There would be no America if Christian Colonists believed they should obey the evil laws of England. Similarly, California Governor Gavin Newsom has ordered churches not to sing and worship. I can’t think of a worse idea than to stop praise and worship because Gavin Newsom, or any other Governor told you to. It’s time  to wake up to the sad truth that Democrat Governors have declared war on the church. They were aggressively oppressing Christians 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).

 

 

 

 

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

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