When the racists call everyone else racist—when the fascists call everyone else fascists—when those who are full of hate—call everyone else haters, and society listens, then freedom is, truly, just a candle in the wind.
When the Left says that words can be the same as violence, and then they are found to be guilty by their own inflammatory words and actions, then freedom is a candle in the wind.
As John Daniel Davidson said, “Is it not divisive and inflammatory for Democrats to refuse to enforce our borders while promising to give taxpayer-paid health care to illegal immigrants? Is it not divisive and inflammatory for sports stars and corporations to denounce the Betsy Ross flag and the national anthem as racist? Doesn’t that exacerbate a feeling of helplessness and dispossession, and fuel a whole spectrum of responses—from ordinary patriotism to outright xenophobia and racism?”
When thugs don masks and beat innocent people in MAGA hats and these terrorists are coddled by Democrats and leftist media, then freedom is a candle in the wind.
Elizabeth Warren—who is still uncertain of her own race—blamed Donald Trump for “advancing racism and white supremacy.” She and the others on the Left are all but calling for a race war. When war is declared and the side that does not want war is blamed for the war, then freedom is a candle in the wind.
Worst of all, we see how evil they are, that they can immediately politicize a massacre. They don’t care about the victims of the shootings. Bullets tore into the bodies of innocent people. Did any of the voices of manufactured outrage care anything for the families who lost everything in an instant? The shattered lives do not matter to them. The incurable sorrow will get no compassion from them. To them, these families are just a photo opportunity—a prop to be used to alarm a nation into voting for them.
Instantly, Beto O’Rourke said that President Trump was a “racist” and had “a lot to do with what happened in El Paso yesterday.” Sen. Cory Booker was even more blunt, saying, “Donald Trump is responsible for this.” When masses of people can’t see how evil this is, then freedom is a candle in the wind.
Most sane people reject the Right Wing conspiracy theory that says international corporate and political elites in the West are intentionally replacing their native populations with immigrants, in order to enrich themselves.
However, the Left isn’t trying to deny this. The New York Times ran a Michelle Goldberg column under the headline, “We Can Replace Them,” which closed with this line: “In a week, American voters can do to white nationalists what they fear most. Show them they’re being replaced.”
Again John Daniel Davidson says, “This isn’t a new idea on the Left, and it isn’t relegated to the fringe. Back in 2002, Ruy Teixeira and John Judis came out with “The Emerging Democratic Majority,” which popularized and mainstreamed the idea that white Americans would be replaced by a permanent majority coalition of non-white voters. Ten years later, after President Obama’s reelection, Teixeira took to the the pages of The Atlantic to argue that things were playing out just as he had predicted, and that if Democrats could keep giving Americans what they truly wanted—more welfare, more regulation, more government control over daily life—then “the emerging Democratic majority could be here to stay.”
More recently, turning the white nationalists’ “replacement” rhetoric on its head has become commonplace among Antifa protestors chanting “we will replace you,” a sentiment powerfully reinforced by the anti-Immigration and Customs Enforcement protestors who recently tore down an American flag outside an ICE facility and replaced it with the Mexican flag.”
When such utter tyranny can advance unchecked, and is protected by a news media that is corrupt to the core, then freedom is a candle in the wind.
However, freedom’s greatest enemy does not reside in the camp of leftists, but in the pews of churches. A soundly sleeping generation of believers is our greatest enemy. Their apathy is our deepest danger.
But all is not lost.
History shows us that God does not wait for the lukewarm to rise to their duty. Our God is a consuming fire. Do you wonder, why God doesn’t do something? You see America being torn apart, battered into submission, and molded into some ugly weak version of her former self. All in the name of progress. When those who are the moral bottom of society become the loudest voices of influence, shouldn’t God act?
I believe He is acting. But it is happening in a wholly unexpected way. He is at war to save our nation. The real question is, “Are you ready to understand what your assignment is in His war to save America?”
In a last-ditch effort to save America, God will pour out His Spirit. It will not be within the “system” but outside celebrated circles. It will restore much of Spirit-filled Pentecostal churches from business-model-entertainment-centers back to a movement. Many small churches will become ground zero for the Glory of God.
This event will not be painless. Wicked agendas will topple. False doctrine will die an early death due to the healthy appetite of young converts. Church empires will be given the ultimatum to return to dependency on the Holy Spirit or be brushed aside, and suffer total loss.
God’s miracle will be a great boon to some, but a horrendous event for others. It will be a day of rejoicing and a day of mourning. It will be a complete display of extremes. God will do what He has to do to save this nation.
In this hour, it is not enough to be saved and filled with the Holy Spirit—not nearly enough. Every soldier of God must know what God is doing in their time. The New Testament begins and ends with the drama of willing vessels having their lives interrupted, ruined for mortal pursuits, commissioned for great exploits, and then launched into an amazing adventure.
The Debate Last night proved once and for all that a Democrat win would be a disaster even for Democrats. Leftists dream of a Trump loss, not realizing how horrendously they would reap what they have sown. The Left has poisoned the well so completely that it will be impossible for a Democrat to govern. A Trump loss would absolutely push millions over the edge, and only God knows what that would look like.
Here are the 3 reasons why it would be a nightmare for Democrats as well as for the rest of us, if Trump were to be defeated:
1. Americans, by the tens of millions will believe the election was rigged. And, they will adamantly reject the results and force legal action. Even those who are not currently Trump supporters believe that an elite group of leftists are in control of the social and news media platforms. We know that they manipulate and censor information. We know this elite group is fiercely anti-Trump. We know this cadre has the power to rig an election. Google has been caught in a scheme to add millions of votes to the Democrat candidate. Facebook has leaked the fact that they will choke off Trump ads and shadow ban any post that asks people to vote for Trump. We already know that CNN, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, and CBS will saturate America with anti-Trump propaganda.
2. The economy would instantly plunge downward. Does a Democrat really want to oversee the greatest collapse of jobs and wealth since the great depression? The nation will blame the Democrat Party.
It is one of history’s greatest miscalculations to believe that veering left is what Americans want. Yet, all of the Democrat candidates are falling over each other to be as far left as possible. The Socialist/LGBTQ/Anti-Israel rants play well to the oxygen deprived audiences of Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, and Bernie Sanders. However, they scare the liver out of the majority of Americans.
If the day were to come when a Democrat takes the oath of office, all that will be seen by millions of Americans, is impending economic disaster.
3. Millions of people will make it their aim to be as rude and unfair to both the Democrat President and their followers, as the Left was to Trump and his supporters. I am in no way condoning this—I am merely predicting what would take place. It tragic that the Left destroyed civil discourse.
A Democrat win would mean open season to say, print, or publish whatever vile slur comes to mind, because that is the model that has been created by the Democrat Party. A vast segment of the population would remember that Trump was the most unfairly, falsely, and cruelly treated President since Abraham Lincoln.
The backlash for all that the Left has been doing, such as: assaulting people in MAGA hats, spitting on them in restaurants, their elected officials calling for harassment and for chasing down Trump supporters, and for all the violence committed by Antifa, has set the tone for the new President.
In Red States, masses would push their representatives to block everything the new Democrat President tried to do, and would take out their rage on any and every Democrat politician in their home State. Forget about any new appointments to the Supreme Court.
You may ask, “Mario, are you saying I should vote for Trump even though I violently disagree with him?” No, I am not. What I am saying is that you, who are leftists, have done a great evil to America. I am saying that defeating Trump will not bring the elation you fantasize about—it will bring even more misery. And, why not? It is only fair that you should suffer along with the rest of us.
However, Trump is going to win. And, if you only realized what that means for the future of America, you would be relieved to know that it is true.
A Trump loss the next election is too terrible to imagine. But even if he wins, we will desperately need a true revival in America. Tragically, the church doesn’t know the difference between true and false revival.
Many of the things the church does today simply do not matter. They don’t point in the trajectory of revival. In fact they point in the opposite direction. Many things done by churches are impressive, even successful—I am saying they will not save America
We know the times are evil. But what can we do about it? That’s the number one question I am asked. My answer is, “We need to stop toying, speculating, and paying lip service to revival. We need to seize a true revival.”
The real culprit today is false revival. There is untold damage done when we take a good meeting and market it as revival. To characterize a good meeting as revival is like filling a bath tub with salt water, and calling it the Pacific Ocean.
I am not telling you that your ‘good meeting’ is not true revival—because history and our culture are both telling you it is not. History says revival overflows church walls and makes deep impacts on society, which is not happening. And when our culture swats away our church meetings and continues to careen into deeper wickedness—it is telling us we are not in revival.
There is one thing—above all others—that is stopping true revival: We don’t have a pure motive. We want it for all the wrong reasons. If revival is our ticket to getting church growth, emotional experiences, self-promotion, formulas, and wealth, our prayers are like nuclear waste to God.
The most well known verse on revival begins with a huge ‘IF’: 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
IF you truly yearn for the miracle that would stop America’s slide into oblivion—IF you wish for an act of the Holy Spirit so real and widespread that it impacts crime, injustice, addiction, and despair—then listen to this lesson from history:
In 1904, American leaders were enthralled by the revival that was then taking place in Wales. Hundreds of thousands were converted, and the morals of the nation were transformed. American church leaders wanted a revival like that here. But they tried to buy it.
These enterprising pastors and businessmen invested in massive campaigns. They were dismal failures. So much so, that the very concept of revival fell into disfavor.
Two years later, they realized their mistake. When widespread brokenness gripped the leaders, aided by a pure motive, they cried out and heaven heard them. One of the catalysts to this awakening was a man named James Burns.
James Burns wrote a powerful book entitled “Revivals, Their Laws and Leaders.” In 1909 he wrote, “To the church, a revival means humiliation, a bitter knowledge of unworthiness and an open and humiliating confession of sin on the part of her ministers and people. It is not the easy and glorious thing many think it to be, who imagine it fills pews and reinstates the church in power and authority.
“It comes to scorch before it heals; it comes to condemn ministers and people for their unfaithful witness, for their selfish living, for their neglect of the cross, and to call them to daily renunciation, to an evangelical poverty and to a deep and daily consecration. That is why a revival has ever been unpopular with large numbers within the church. Because it says nothing to them of power such as they have learned to love, or of ease, or of success; it accuses them of sin, it tells them they are dead, it calls them to awake, to renounce the world and to follow Christ.”
America, at last, had found a pure motive for revival. New York, Chicago, Los Angeles (at Azusa Street), and many other cities saw amazing things. Denver, Colorado, and Portland, Oregon, which are currently bastions of marijuana, atheism, and rampant liberalism, shut down businesses at noon so everyone could go and pray. Crime dropped to virtually nothing. Bars sat empty, and millions went to prayer everyday across America.
Until our knees buckle beneath the horror of our nation’s sin and the blasphemy of our cheap grace fades away, our request for revival will be denied.
But I still feel faith for the church in America to turn around. More importantly, God holds out great hope to us. Let me share two things that forever killed my doubts about revival. One was a scripture, Matthew 12:20: “A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench, till He sends forth justice to victory.”
Jesus will not snuff out the least flicker of revival. When anyone asks for revival from a pure heart, God says, “Yes,” and begins the process. He takes you at your word.
The other thing that occurred was a revelation I received as I was standing at the beach and the gentle foam of the ocean lapped over my toes. The voice of the Lord said, “This gentle wave is the cousin of the tsunami.”
The smallest flame in the smallest church will not be quenched by Jesus. Given the proper opportunity, the Spirit of God will fan it into a raging fire of righteousness. The gentlest wave can grow into a tidal wave when anyone hosts within them the presence of God. But they must obey His step-by-step orders, and they must refuse to exploit what God is doing among them.
These two truths are resonating powerfully within me now. I want them to blow up in your spirit as well! Do you truly want revival? Then what are you waiting for?
You will seek Me and find Me, when you seek Me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:13)
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! JOIN US IF FRESNO
If I listed everything the church was allowed to say ten years ago that she can’t say today, you would be horrified. Without a miracle, your children and grandchildren will have to survive in a world that will totally ban their faith—and what is even scarier: they will have to face it without you.
It is hard to convince many Christians that they are rapidly losing their First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and freedom of religion. They either don’t believe it is happening, or they chalk it up to ‘fake news’ or ‘politics.’ But the erosion of liberty is not only real—it is the greatest threat American Christians have ever faced.
The doctrines of our faith that offend are: the Cross, the Blood of Jesus, the reality of Hell, sexual purity, and marriage. Preachers who feel the heat from government censorship are already deleting these doctrines from their sermons. They’ll tell you it’s to reach a bigger audience—but, trust me, it’s the heat.
What can we do to stop the church from being driven underground? No one who is truly a man or woman of God can seriously entertain the idea that we should stop preaching these truths. That is not even an option. What then can we do to reverse this pernicious loss of liberty?
An even better question is: What does God do when a nation tries to silence His church? The answer came to me suddenly. Hear me out, it is not what you think. It is way beyond petitions, or elections. The revelation I am about to relate to you, struck me with paralyzing clarity. I am amazed I never saw it before.
However, nothing I am about to say will help you, not one point I am making will have its intended impact, unless you have a heart for it. If you are still in denial about what is happening, I can’t help you—this message can’t help you. If you think I am dispensing alarmist extremism, then you are just another part of the threat.
But, if you want to hear God’s heart on this crisis—if you hunger for more than half-answers, then you have come to the right place. You can ask the Holy Spirit the most important question you could ever ask: “What do You do when a nation tries to silence Your church?”
Here it comes:
When the leaders of Jerusalem arrested Peter, they didn’t know what to charge him with or how to punish him. They knew they had to silence the church. There was no doubt about their intention. They were prepared to do anything to stop the Gospel—so what was stopping them? Answer that, and you will know what the exact marching orders are, that the church needs today.
What was hindering the council members was the glaring presence of the man who came with Peter and John. This was the crippled beggar who used to sit at the Gate Beautiful. A spectacular miracle had occurred! He had occupied the most visible and lucrative begging station in Jerusalem. Everyone knew him. Word of his miraculous healing filled Jerusalem, and a mad chorus of praise was rising over the Eternal City.
Their deep consternation is vividly described in these verses: Acts 4:14 “And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. 15 But when they had commanded (Peter and John) to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, 16 saying, “What shall we do to these men? For, indeed, that a notable miracle has been done through them is evident to all who dwell in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it.””
Their profound dilemma was not lost on Peter. The Holy Spirit had revealed to him the divine solution to government censorship. Peter had clearly settled on a course of action—the very action we need to take today. It is the action we take in our tent. He left with a battle plan. He was armed with critical information.
He gathered the people of God, and ordered them to pray. He was about to pray a prayer that is the precise model for our crisis. He faced the same threat we face. Remember that word: “threat.”
You will recall I told you that nothing good can come to you from my message, unless you see how urgent the hour has become? Peter began his prayer by calling the situation ‘a threat.’ We must do this, also.
In Acts chapter 4, Peter prayed: 29 “Now, Lord, look upon their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your Holy Servant Jesus.”
Peter is showing us that boldness is essential. Only boldness will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
Not only this, he is forever settling the question of preaching. Preaching must not leave anything out. It is by sharing the whole counsel of God, that the church is protected, and able to continue her work.
Next, Peter is admitting that the vehicle for that boldness is signs and wonders. God must stretch His hand over an angry culture, perform supernatural healings, and overrule the agenda of man. Such is the case today. Look at how God answered:
Acts 4:31 “And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.”
Not only were they filled with the Holy Spirit and boldness, but God answered their prayer for miracles. In the next chapter, the very shadow of Peter was healing the masses. (Acts 5:15-16)
Ignore those who aren’t willing. Set the time and place to go to homes, houses of worship, schools, offices—anywhere where true prayer can be raised up to God. Prove this promise and see: the Spirit will fall; you will receive a tongue of fire, and miracles will come. I am not talking about self-absorbed emotional light touches. I am talking about undeniable, medically verified, city-shaking divine healings.
And you will see that now, as in that day, no law, no argument, and no politician will be able to silence the church!
COME AND BRING THOSE WHO NEED A MIRACLE TO THIS OPEN DECLARATION AND DEMONSTRATION OF THE POWER OF CHRIST IN FRESNO
The Democrats have made it plain: free healthcare for illegals paid for by you. They are not hiding anything. They want the right to kill newborns. They will force the church to stop teaching God’s word on sexual immorality. They will remake America. We see their true colors. They couldn’t be any clearer.
What I don’t get, is how the American church can still think this is all a game.
Because of man, and nature—planet Earth is ready to explode—not from global warming but from moral cooling. Matthew 24:12 “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.”
Meanwhile, the church—like passengers partying on the deck of the Titanic—pats herself on the back for what she considers her ‘big events.’
Nothing has stopped America’s headlong depravity. Nothing has even slowed it down. We have spent more money, more time, and more talent than ever—yet the church never asks, “Why do we keep doing things that don’t work?” Why can’t we impact culture?”
When the church:
-Feeds a powerless Gospel to a sick nation, a Gospel that does not deliver us from evil, but even worse, makes those who have already been converted still weaker, the church must think it is a game.
-When the church no longer views the works of Satan as the enemy, but believes the worst thing that can happen is to have an unsuccessful life—the church is just playing a game. The only solution is a return to the Bible. The Bible needs to set fire to our sermons.
Sadly, even many of my Spirit-filled acquaintances are also playing games. Facebook is like a Petri dish for Pentecostals. In one compressed medium you witness the banal bacteria that excite Charismatics today.
Witness the games:
-Titles like Prophet, Bishop, and Apostle are flung around indiscriminately. Every garish emotional experience is hawked as being from God. One “prophet” says he went back in time and visited Moses. Who of us has not scratched our heads at preachers in ill-fitting jeans, live-streaming from a near-empty church, telling us that they are the ‘vessel of the hour’?
– Conferences promise that you will get “a word from God” if you pay a fee…as if the Holy Spirit was some kind of On Demand Movie Channel. Or they offer formulas to “activate” blessings. This is New Age philosophy. God is not a force to be manipulated—He is an awesome person to be adored and obeyed. God is not your shield and butler! Gifts arrive, as the Spirit wills, to those whose hearts are broken and those who are emptied of self. His gifts are for the lost, the poor, and the forsaken.
-Everything seems based on angelic visitations, dreams, visions, and trips to heaven. Most of our time is spent on these ‘experiences’ rather than on rock-solid instruction from the Word of God.
I believe in dreams, prophecy, healing, angels, and visions—but if they are from God, they will drive us to the front line of the culture war, and not into emotionally comfortable safe-zones.
“The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty to the tearing down of strongholds.” (2 Corinthians 10:4)
We are nowhere near tearing down any kind of strongholds—because we think it’s a game. We insulate the supernatural from the ones who need it most. We are role playing. We are doing our own version of dungeons and dragons.
Beloved, this is not a game. When Christians toy with materialism, celebrity, alcohol, compromise, and carnality—it spells doom for America. Right now, giant media sources such as Google, Facebook, Apple, YouTube, and the rest of Silicon Valley, are threatening to pull the plug on Christians, Christian Schools, and churches. Pinterest has already been caught deleting posts containing scripture. Every day they inch closer to full censorship. Will your zany videos matter, when they are immediately taken down and no one can see them?
Our preaching ricochets off a culture careening into indescribable debauchery. Soon it will be illegal to preach the doctrines you are now ignoring. What a horror! Pastor, you will wake up one day feeling remorse over the truths you ignored, because now it’s too late—they have been banned.
I am often asked, “Mario is there any hope?”
The answer is, “Yes! Because my hope is founded on God’s fierce love for America! He will not let this nation go, without a fierce fight. My hope is also in some of the last people you would expect.
My hope is in the discouraged preacher. They are the honest-to-God preachers, who feel like fools when they see the runaway success of those who have compromised their ministries.
Psalm 73:12 “Behold, these are the ungodly who are always at ease; they increase in riches. 13 Surely, I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocence. 14 For all day long I have been plagued, and chastened every morning.”
My hope is in those who chose to fail honestly, rather than succeed artificially.
Are you struggling with decreasing numbers and falling finances, even as you present Christ-centered, Bible-based-truth from your pulpit? God sees you! Hold on just a little longer. Fire is coming that will cause such a stampede that you won’t know where to put the crowds.
My hope is in the Christian nobodies. Have you failed? Did man take away your pulpit? Get ready…your brokenness is a key to the fire of God in this hour. A nationwide hunger for reality is about to make shallowness obsolete.
Are you a teacher, business person, police officer, or stay at home mom? Do you burn with a passion for your community?
Get ready for vision and anointing! They are about to break out, right where you live!
The hour is so dangerous that God must bring down religious empires, while promoting others to great power and influence. Satan is also playing games.
I believe that God is not playing games. Using the last people we would expect, He is about to teach Satan what war really looks like!
No, I am not a prophet. I am something else. God ordered me to warn the American churches of an impending disaster—to rebuke rampant immorality, the sin of abandoning the Word of God, and political hypocrisy. God ordered me to expose the tyranny of the Left and wake up as many drowsy Christians as possible.
Ironically, few criticized me when I preached against gang violence, poverty, heroin, and crystal meth. But they attack me for exposing the worst gang and the most addictive narcotic: Leftist Socialism.
But I am not a prophet! Amos said, “I am not really one of the prophets. I do not come from a family of prophets. I am just a herdsman and a fruit picker. But the Lord took me from caring for the flocks and told me, “Go and prophesy to my people Israel.”” -Amos 7:14
I was just minding my own business, winning souls. Leading addicts, gang bangers, and students to Jesus is my life. Only my wife and a few very near to me know the price I’ve paid. I have lost friends. I have been banned from some churches. And no wonder!
This blog put a spotlight on a hideous, hidden condition. Churches were tacitly approving abortion, same sex marriage, and many other leftist Democrat views in order to hold on to their members.
When you consider the content of the blog, it is a miracle that it has spread to six million readers. It preaches a message that few ever get in church anymore. It breaks every axiom of social media. Instead of using video—a far more effective means of attracting an audience—I was limited to the written word. There is no natural way to explain its expanding influence, except God. However, it is here to warn!
If I am not a prophet, then what is my office and my gift? I am an Evangelist! That is all I want to do−to see mass revival, with signs and wonders. I have never stopped winning souls! I will never stop winning souls!
Someone else was supposed to take this mantle that weighs so heavily on me. They were supposed to prophesy against the evil threatening our nation. The Lord revealed to me that He had called another minister to do this job, but that individual was unwilling to lose their reputation and to stand in the gap for America. I was not God’s first choice for this!
Now I must issue a fresh warning.
Because of the wide-spread sickness in the American church, that was demonstrated in the mid-term elections, pastors who were nothing more that hired guns (bought and paid for by the likes of George Soros) are bringing down the judgment of God. Because millions of so-called Christians voted for the Democrat Party, because they sat in churches, hearing murky messages urging them to vote for leftists, we almost saw Hillary Clinton come to power. These pastors are the proverbial wolves in sheep’s clothing.
Those false ministers who form covenants with darkness are muzzled by the fear of not being ‘politically correct.’ They can’t condemn abortion or the destruction of marriage. They are silent concerning the threat posed by radical Islam and the anti-God violence in America. As a consequence they are facing an even more grave danger—they have grieved the Holy Spirit.
The ideas and values that created America are almost gone. That makes the carnal church special villains in the eyes of God. Ananias and Sapphira were not struck dead simply because of their crime—it was also because of when they committed it. They did it in a strategic time when many miracles were taking place and the church needed to be reminded that they served a holy God.
Amos was not a prophet, per se, but he was recruited by the Lord to expose the rogue altars that corrupt priests had built to replace the altar God had told Moses to erect. They introduced superstitions that were outside the word of God. Amos told them “tear them down, or God will!”
Amos 3:13 says, “Hear and testify against the house of Jacob,” says the Lord God, the God of hosts, 14 “that in the day I punish Israel for their transgressions, I will also visit destruction on the altars of Bethel; and the horns of the altar shall be cut off and fall to the ground. 15 I will destroy the winter house along with the summer house; the houses of ivory shall perish, and the great houses shall have an end, says the Lord.”
Can this mean that lavish centers of worship can suddenly disappear? Can we afford to assume they cannot? Two years after Amos prophesied concerning the sin of Israel, an earthquake destroyed everything the prophecy of Amos had targeted.
But Isaiah said, “Tell the righteous it shall be well with them.” This is the hour for the remnant who love God, and who seek His face, to feel comforted. You will be spared.
In fact, at this moment, heaven is releasing power for miracles, words of prophetic might, and great resources to do the work of God. Those who have kept their integrity and who have perhaps labored in obscurity, not seeing any results, will receive great power and see great numbers of converts.
For the rest, there remains an ominous warning: In your carnality, you are one of the greatest threats to freedom. You are aiding and abetting the destruction of a great miracle—the miracle of liberty that came from our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution.
Someday soon, all I say will be confirmed. I will then be released from this prophetic mandate, because I am not a prophet. I am an Evangelist.
But know this, that if the church will not rise up and speak, God will bring natural disasters against us in judgment. Disasters such as we are seeing, even now: flood, fire, plague, earthquakes, famine, and rampant crime, in order to wake us up and turn us back to Him. It is His gracious mercy. God wants to spare America from self-destruction.
Matthew Henry said something chilling in his commentary on Amos: “If men will not destroy idolatrous altars, God will, and those with them that had them in veneration.”
