GOOD NEWS

There is good news that I have been hesitant to bring you because it seemed too good to be true. I wanted to be sure that it was not just a temporary phase. It is time for me to tell you my own wonderful discovery. But first I want to address something on a much wider scale than my own personal experience.

Is the American church going the way of the hula hoop and the lava lamp? Is it just a matter of time until our faith dies out in America? Leftists love to say this, but it turns out it is a total lie.

Glenn T. Stanton wrote in an article entitled New Harvard Research Says U.S. Christianity Is Not Shrinking, But Growing Stronger:

“New research published late last year by scholars at Harvard University and Indiana University Bloomington is just the latest to reveal the myth. This research questioned the “secularization thesis,” which holds that the United States is following most advanced industrial nations in the death of their once vibrant faith culture. Churches becoming mere landmarks, dance halls, boutique hotels, museums, and all that.

“Not only did their examination find no support for this secularization in terms of actual practice and belief, the researchers proclaim that religion continues to enjoy “persistent and exceptional intensity” in America. These researchers hold our nation “remains an exceptional outlier and potential counter example to the secularization thesis.””

 

It seemed too good to be true, but then I started getting the calls—calls from leaders who openly opposed the positions I have been declaring in these blogs. They were offended by my insistence on letting the Holy Spirit move.

They began to tell me how they are seeking God and repenting. They began to tell me how they changed their sermons. What is really stunning is that the power of God is flowing in their services, and the crowds which were there for entertainment are now clamoring for more Bible. Prayer meetings are starting to outdraw church socials.

Where we feel it the most is in our tent crusades. Churches who were in deep division are now joining together. They are dropping their differences in order to win the lost.

I can only report to you what is happening in my corner of the world. I was afraid this was just a passing fancy, but it appears that this change is truly taking hold!

You, our faithful readers, have a real hand in this miracle. I freely admit that I have been stern, but apparently what I have been writing is taking hold in the hearts of leaders. The good news is that hearts are turning back toward God, and it appears to be expanding.

If you think that means I will let up in my intensity in speaking the Word of the Lord—think again. We still have widespread corruption, error, and counterfeits at work in the church.  Let us at least rejoice that leaders are beginning to listen to prophets, teachers, and in some cases, even to me.  All glory to God!

OUR TENT CRUSADE IN PARADISE BEGINS THURSDAY. COME IF YOU CAN. PLEASE PRAY.

 


 

 

 

Donald Trump now

The witch hunt has been destroyed. The lies of CNN, MSNBC, and the cohorts of the now fully discredited left-wing media are cascading down on them.

It all began when they did everything they could to get Clinton elected. But, when Donald Trump won, they were consumed by hate. They turned to the task of removing Trump from office.

Remember this about Hillary Clinton. She colluded with Russians. She obstructed justice.  The deep state embedded in many aspects of government—notably the intelligence community and the Justice Department—deliberately covered up her crimes. But they did not stop there.

In a breathtaking irony, they decided to pin her crimes on Donald Trump. Now it has all blown up in their face. I said it would. Two years ago, I said this, “Trump will not be impeached.  He will not even be censured. You don’t need to worry about Donald Trump.”

But is this cause for celebration? Quite the opposite. You need to see the shameful and criminal abuse of power by all of these people. This is a very dark day for America if we do not bring to justice all who broke the law, including Hillary Clinton.

For two years CNN and MSNBC fed the lie…not merely from hatred of Trump but to save their failing networks. It was all a lie. Not one thing they said about Trump was true.

533,074 articles about Russian collusion were written. Networks gave a whopping 2,284 minutes of air-time to the investigation. $25 million was spent and all the while they knew there was no evidence of any wrongdoing.

What you have witnessed is the darkest abuse of power America has ever seen. People in great positions of power colluded in a way that makes the Watergate scandal look like jaywalking. There needs to be a national outrage that has not been seen since the Boston Tea Party.

The Republican Senate needs to declare war on this desecration of justice, due process, and the rule of law. Average Americans need to wake up to the great evil that has been done to them. For 2 years, Democrats have cared zero about jobs, national security, education, or our crumbling infrastructure—as they chased a fantasy fueled by hate. But why has all of this come to light?

Heaven is involved in this. When widespread evil is exposed, you know God is back of it. This was the answer to prayer for many intercessors.

Not once did I flinch in the face of this attack on Trump. I knew what God would do. And so, I am going to tell you what God will now do with Donald Trump.

To understand what God will do with Trump now, you must first recognize two miracles that brought us here:

-The first miracle was a grace that rested upon Trump and his family. No family and no man could have endured the vile tsunami of lies, insults, and threats, unless they were supernaturally sustained.

-The second, is that this witch hunt was destroyed. Look at who was against him: 400 newspapers. All the late-night talk show hosts. Every major network but Fox. The Moles in the FBI and CIA, the Democrat Party, and on and on it goes. How did they not get what they wanted? Why couldn’t the greatest cadre of power in history bring down one man?

Psalm 41:11 explains it: “By this I know that You are well pleased with me, because my enemy does not triumph over me.” The Mueller investigation was the great hope of the Left. It is why they spent 2 years pouring every last drop of their currency into it.

America came closer to losing freedom and morality than you can know. We were on the very brink of losing our Constitution and seeing the church driven underground. A spell has been broken.

Now Americans will ask: if the Russia Collusion thing was a hoax, what else is a hoax? Then the drowsy acceptance of foolishness is going to go away. Antifa protesters will look even stupider. Insane pronouncements by wacky politicians will now sound insane. Double standards will die.

 

In the next few months Donald Trump will behave like a general, uncovering more corruption, and turning the people of America away from the lies that have poisoned our institutions and campuses. You will see free speech return. It will once again be safe for opposing views to be shared.

Furthermore…Donald Trump has been steadily making it better for me and others to win lost souls. Since he signed the executive order enforcing free speech on campus, it opens the door for us to win students, like never before.

Now Trump will bulldoze the other lies and abuses of power that surround us. But what does that mean to you? It means that the church must seize this miracle. How will we explain it to God if we sit on the sidelines when doors are flying open?

It is silly to worry about what people will think if we stand with Trump. The evil spirit that fuels the Left will hate you and God, with or without Trump. At least with Trump, we have a firewall to let us preach the Gospel and hold on for another miracle.

We can’t be passive! We can’t fear supporting President Trump because things have gotten so heated. We also can’t sit back and abuse the miracle we have received.

The American church must build on the opportunity that Trump is now giving us. We must wake up to our task!  Our disunity is killing our cause. We must shake off the disastrous apathy and complacency that is dulling us to our duty.

There is great hope, because we have gotten a miracle. Miracles have power beyond what we understand. God allowed this blog to get into your hands so that you would pray, and obey. Don’t worry about others…just do the right thing. And rest assured: God will take care of the rest!

 

Will You?

Will you let God use you to save America? Maybe you can see that something radical needs to happen. Maybe you see how Satan has sold so many believers fool’s gold.  Instead of taking up weapons mighty to the tearing down of strongholds, they pursue money, cheap grace, and safe spaces.

Maybe you can see how shallow, flattering, teaching is the perfect greenhouse gas.  Its fumes dull reality. It kills natural urgency.  Taking a stand has become a distant fantasy to many…but what about you?

You see how faith has grown flabby.  You can’t bear to see how many don’t know our weapons.  They don’t know our authority.  They have no marching orders.  They don’t know what to say to this generation.  Most of all, you feel a deep urgency and you are shocked at how ignorant so many are about what is right around the corner.

Peter recognized when government crossed the line.  Acts 4: 19 But Peter and John replied, “Which is right in God’s eyes: to listen to you, or to him? You be the judges! 20 As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”

He also understood what to do when government tries to ban the Gospel: “Acts 5: 28 saying, “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name? And look, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man’s blood on us!” 29 But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.”

They are coming after our freedom.  They will force feed our children the Antichrist agenda. That is…unless we wake up to our purpose and destiny.   I am calling you out for special power in this hour. However, we are to be alert not alarmed. Let the dire consequences light a fire in your soul! Is God selecting you to give a weapons grade faith and boldness?

If you are finally ready to be a part of God’s war to save our nation, then do these things:

1. You must be filled or refilled with the Holy Spirit.  You must have fire, or you must have fresh fire.   The courage to face the onslaught of hatred that will be thrown at you can never be met by human power.  To say what you need to say, to obey when you need to obey can’t come from human motivation.  You must have the same Spirit that fueled world-changing saints in all times. God never meant for anyone to preach or lead without a clear baptism of the Holy Spirit.

2. You must flow in signs and wonders.  Our culture is beyond words.  They must see proof of the power of God.  God means for you to provide that proof.  The authority you need won’t come cheaply or instantly.  (Read my blog on the price of God’s miracle working power https://wp.me/p1vrzp-53e

3. Get ready to do something for God that will boggle your mind.  God is selecting people and working in them for unmatched power to attack evil.  Habakkuk 1: 5 “Look among the nations and watch—Be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days Which you would not believe, though it were told you.”

He is creating people who can turn the tide of wickedness.  He doesn’t care about your age or your education.  He searches for someone who is travailing over the evil and will die without power and purpose.  They want to be in the fight—they want to be in the thick of it.  Isaiah 6: 8 says, “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

4. Prepare to pray in a way you never imagined.  God is pulling you out of the damaged religious crowd into special intimacy with him.  You are not going to pray like you did before.  E.M Bounds said, “To say prayers in a decent, delicate way is not heavy work. But to pray really, to pray till hell feels the ponderous stroke, to pray till the iron gates of difficulty are opened, till the mountains of obstacles are removed, till the mists are exhaled and the clouds are lifted, and the sunshine of a cloudless day brightens-this is hard work, but it is God’s work, and man’s best labor.”

What do all of these things I am asking you to do have in common?  Every one of them involves a leap out of dead religion.  They are a courageous declaration of war on the godless ideologies that are destroying our nation.  They are an irrevocable decision to be in the middle of God’s greatest acts in history.

Frustrating you into greatness

In times of acute spiritual warfare God frustrates those He has chosen for a special work. Maybe you can see that something radical needs to happen. Maybe you see things others don’t .  Your survey the church scene and see how Satan has sold so many believers fool’s gold.  You’re convinced that a feeble generation is not taking up weapons mighty to the tearing down of strongholds. Instead, they pursue money, cheap grace, and safe spaces.

You can see how shallow, flattering, teaching is the perfect greenhouse.  It dulls reality. It kills urgency.  Taking a stand has become a distant fantasy to many…but what about you?

You see how faith has grown flabby.  You can bear to see how many don’t know our weapons.  They don’t know our authority.  They have no marching orders.  They don’t know what to say to this generation.  Most of all, you feel a deep urgency and you are shocked at how ignorant so many are about what is right around the corner.

They are coming after our freedom.  They will force feed our children the Antichrist agenda. That is…unless we wake up to our purpose and destiny.   I am calling you out for special power in this hour. However, we are to be alert not alarmed. Let the dire consequences light a fire in your soul!

You see and feel all of this for a reason: God is frustrating you into greatness. He has delivered you from the mediocre by embedding an insatiable restlessness–a restlessness than can only be quelled by prayer and obedience. Is God selecting you to give a weapons grade faith and boldness?

If you simply can’t stay where you are and you need a breakthrough, then do these things:

1. Be filled or refilled with the Holy Spirit.  You must have fire, or you must have fresh fire.   The courage to face the onslaught of hatred that will be thrown at you can never be met by human power.  To say what you need to say, to obey when you need to obey can’t come from human motivation.  You must have the same Spirit that fueled world-changing saints in all times. God never meant for anyone to preach or lead without a clear baptism of the Holy Spirit.

2. Make room for signs and wonders.  Our culture is beyond words.  They must see proof of the power of God.  God means for you to provide that proof.  The authority you need won’t come cheaply or instantly.  (Read my blog on the price of God’s miracle working power https://wp.me/p1vrzp-53e

A new turn

She sat near the front with no inkling what was about to happen to her. The Holy Spirit revealed the two precise locations of her physical problems. But then the details became so stunning that it hit the audience. By the Spirit’s power, I told her she had been punched in her abdomen and the side of her head. The Holy Spirit said that her assault was covered up but it would be exposed. She was already scheduled to be in court to defend herself.
One of the local pastors very familiar with her entire situation followed up and learned that the damage to her eyesight has now vanished as well as the damage to her stomach. He also knows she will win her case.
Why am I telling you this? Simply because this was only one of a number of healings that happened in the tent on Monday night.  It was because of this, a buzz went out into the community. The result was that tonight was the biggest crowd yet. It was packed.

As I surveyed the crowd, my only concern was the fire marshal. Last week, I was told he was coming on Tuesday night. I assumed our Tuesday night attendance would dip from Sunday and Monday so I felt glad that he had picked Tuesday. Now, I was looking at a crowd that not was not only packed in…I couldn’t figure out how they all got in! This would be the worst night for him to show up.
Then the atmosphere changed into something we had not seen before. Youth were everywhere and God was doing a deep work in them. We thought we knew what God would do. Many had traveled from great distances to be healed. We were told people had flown in from Texas, New Jersey and Washington expecting miracles.
The sensation I am about to describe is not easy because I have never had it before. I could feel souls wanting Jesus. This hunger after God forced our regular program to go out the window.  It knew that as soon as I gave the appeal to come to Christ it would completely take over the meeting. But even then, I still didn’t get it right.
Some told me that over 150 people came to Christ. Others said even more. But, as always say, only God knows the real number. What I do know, is that I had to make an emergency move. We would not take an offering—we would not have a normal healing service—and, we would not ask the converts to go outside. There were just too many of them to move.

I told the people that the need of those who had come forward must take priority. I told them there are too many souls that want Jesus for us to go on with the meeting. I asked all of those who needed healing to put their hand on their heart. We began praying for mass miracles. I exhorted them that because they had sacrificed the regular healing time for the sake of new converts that God would intensify His power to heal them. And indeed, you could feel healing power surging in people’s bodies everywhere in the tent.
Pastor Jim Carpenter and the many well trained workers waded into the massive harvest and began praying for them, counselling them, and making sure they were cared for. The audience had received healing miracles like they had expected but they saw souls transformed in a way they did not expect.
What will happen tonight? Only God knows but it is clear that a youth movement is forming, miracles are falling and a revival spirit is spreading fast! Marysville has take a turn toward a major move of God.
The dream I saw of Highway 99 turning into a raging river of miracles has indeed started.

The Dream

The big question was…were we right to pour everything into California? Did we indeed hear from the Lord? For those who may not remember, five years ago, while preaching in Stockton, I had a vivid dream—the kind where you don’t know if you are awake or asleep.  I saw Highway 99 in California. I saw it from Red Bluff all the way to Southern California. This artery of the great central valley is special to God. In the dream I saw a river—Ezekiel’s river flowing with great healing properties, trees of righteousness on both banks. The voice in my dream said, “This is a corridor of glory.” I did not understand why I was getting this dream. It was hidden in the Spirit until just recently. It portends a miracle of a magnitude I can’t fathom.

Then in December of last year the Holy Spirit told me the dream was a mandate for me to go back to California and take our tent to key cities down this corridor.

We have no idea what kind of a crowd would come out to a tent. It was not just raining it was hailing! The enemy said that I would pay for a sentence I wrote about California—that there was a secret the left didn’t want anyone outside of here to know—that people here are hungry for Christ.

Every lie of the devil was crushed as we drove up. The crowd came early and they were excited. Before starting time we frantically added more chairs, until it was standing room only. The pictures do no show the people outside.

We have never seen an atmosphere more charged or electric. There was never a doubt that miracles would come. The only question was when.

They said Marysville was oppressed. They said that addiction and witchcraft had a firm grip on the people. They said that we would feel a heaviness here unlike anywhere else. They said a breakthrough would be near impossible. They were right about everything except the breakthrough.

Whatever principality blanketed the city with oppression was torn open by the worship team. Whatever demonic activity pervaded here came to a dead stop.

My message was called What you need. Here is a quick summation:

Matthew 4: 16 The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light,
And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death
Light has dawned.” Jesus went to the darkest place. Their story is one of endless misery for centuries.

What happened to them? What did Jesus do?

Luke 4:17 And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed; 19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

What is good news to a poor person? The poorest people I know are rich. What is good news to the brokenhearted? Pills? Robin Williams had everything. What is good news to the captive, probation?  the blind another half-answer, the oppressed methadone?

Matthew 6:8 “Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.” Only God knows what you really need.

Philippians 4:19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

There is no more miserable orphan that those that know they have a father. Luke 15: 17 “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you, 19 and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.”

What you need is to surrender your idea of happiness. You need to hear the knock at the door. Someone is trying to get in. Revelation 3: 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

This time let’s do it right. I want the real Christianity. I want the real miracle. I want to let it happen to me. Romans 12: I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

At this, I told them to come and surrender to Christ. They came instantly. They came passionately. Leaders told me at least one hundred souls, others said way more.  The picture shows only half of those who came to Christ. Only God knows the actual number.

The night was crowned with undeniable healing miracles too numerous to do justice in this report. Again, only God knows how many miracles flowed under the tent. What we do know is that the Dream is now a reality.  We have heard from God and California will be visited!

P.S. Last night was not designated as a miracle service. That is tonight. That begs a question: If last night with all of its power was not the actual miracle service what is tonight going to be like?! MM

The Backfire

Today, in a closely watched case a pastor who was arrested for preaching the Gospel went before a judge. The Judge dropped all charges.  That is great but the outrage  among many unchurched people and the unity that this case ignited is the real story.

Right after the midterms the left decided to spike their persecution of Christians. It was a big mistake. Drudge reported that attacks were getting violent by the left not only on Christians but on everyone they hate. Now I want to tell you that this spike in persecution will now backfire. This is just the next step in God’s dealings with America. Just as the lying spirit was exposed, so now the attack on the church will backfire. Read why:

A moment like this is recorded in the Book of Acts: Acts 12:1-3, “Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. 2 Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3 And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter also.”

As I prayed, I experienced colliding emotions of dread and excitement. The Holy Spirit made it clear that persecution against Christians was going to spike in the United States in the next few months.  He also made it clear that this would touch off a towering flow of miracles of healing. That begins now!

Satan wants America destroyed.   It is the grand prize.  With America gone, the devil can unleash worldwide devastation.   But the global tyranny that he craves cannot happen until the American firewall is removed.

He also knows that he can only destroy America from within.  Somehow, he must pit us against each other. 

The only deterrent to civil war at this point is Christianity.  Notice that I do not say the church, I say Christianity.  The church is sidelined by equal parts division and denial.  The Christianity seeping out despite religion is the only thing protecting us.

The devil’s weapon of choice is hate.  He must foment hate.  Today, that hate is coming from the very people claiming to be fighting hate: secular progressives, and social justice warriors.  You have seen how the things that were once loving, moral and trustworthy, including marriage, manhood, military service, freedom of speech, witnessing, the Bible and, yes, freedom itself, are now hateful.

 

God has been lovingly warning the American Church.  He has repeatedly ordered the church to stand as one against immorality, but she has flatly refused.  God now reserved the right to use persecution to wake up the church and spare the nation. This is happening!

There is much good news, but only for a certain group.  The core of Christians who refuse to side with the compromised church, and who are seeking Jesus, will be protected and used mightily.  Persecution will backfire!

The boomerang effect is seen in ancient Israel.  Exodus 1:12 says “But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites.”

After Herod arrested Peter, an angel appeared and brought him out.  This miracle ignited the church.  I am telling you what the Holy Spirit has told me.  Every vessel that seeks God right now will receive greater power and greater miracles.

Call it legend, call me crazy, but I know that this wave of persecution is backfiring.  We can turn it all around.  We can regain lost ground.  Those who disobey God cannot escape this misery and those who obey God will granted special grace and increased supernatural power.

Paul wrote to a worried Philippian church to tell them about the shock outcome of his imprisonment.  It serves as a promise to us of what is about to happen as a result of persecution in America.

Philippians 1:12 “And I want you to know this, dear brothers: Everything that has happened to me here has been a great boost in getting out the Good News concerning Christ. 13 For everyone around here, including all the soldiers over at the barracks, knows that I am in chains simply because I am a Christian. 14 And because of my imprisonment, many of the Christians here seem to have lost their fear of chains! Somehow my patience has encouraged them, and they have become more and more bold in telling others about Christ.”

Writing about the book of Acts Church Matthew Henry said this:  “The persecution that was designed to extirpate the church was by the overruling providence of God made an occasion of the enlargement of it. Christ had said, I am come to send fire on the earth; and they thought, by scattering those who were kindled with that fire, to have put it out, but instead of this they did but help to spread it.” Amen!

P.S. I hesitated to use the word persecution because—compared to the suffering of the underground churches worldwide—ours is but a “light affliction.” The word persecution should be reserved for them. Around the world, Christians are being killed for their faith. Their homes have been plundered and their children taken from them. Their horrors should cause us to pray fervently! Our government is not doing nearly enough against the heinous crimes against the Body of Christ worldwide. God help us to never forget the persecuted church. MM
