THE ATTACKS ON TRUMP WILL FAIL

It seems like every day someone comes up with an accusation which they are convinced will destroy Donald Trump.  However, a rogue group within the FBI found out that conspiring against the President backfires.  The media tried to boost their ratings by bashing Trump, only to lose both their ratings and their credibility.

Mueller’s witch-hunt investigation flamed out as a political disaster.   Americans can see the insanity of it.   Here is the head-scratching part of the whole deal:  We have proof that Hillary colluded with the Russians to produce a fake dossier that was used to start an investigation of Russian collusion with Trump that can’t be proven.  Are you still there?

Democrats still want to look for Russian collusion, the way O.J. is looking for “the real killer.”

– Comey claimed his new book would do Trump in.  Instead, it was like shooting spit-balls at a battleship.

– CBS believed it had the silver bullet to kill Trump.  They gleefully believed that a Sunday night interview with a porn star would bring him down.  But, Monday came and they joined a long list of disappointed Trump haters whose weapons did not prosper.

– Michael Avenatti believed he would be the Trump-slayer, but now he is being indicted by a long list of former clients.

– Michael Cohen along with Omarosa Manigault Newman, et al.  The list of names goes on, with some of them claiming to have some damaging tapes.  This too, will fail.

– 400 newspapers have declared war on Trump.  You know what will happen with that…

Trump will not be impeached.  He will not even be censured.  You don’t need to worry about Donald Trump.   Let me give you 7 reasons why all the attacks on Trump will fail.

1. The poll numbers are skewed against him. Scientists have shown that when people have a favorite candidate who is attacked by the press, they go silent. They still support the person, they just won’t tell you.  Many, many more than we hear about still support Trump. Look at the tens of thousands who arrive the night before, to attend his rallies all over the country.

Even so, Democratic pundits are dismayed at the way President Trump survives.  They were counting on a major drop in support after Trump’s meeting with Putin. It just never happened.

2. Americans see how crazy the attacks on Trump are. People see the flagrant, wanton, and disgraceful attacks that the media makes on him, every single day.  The over-the-top attacks and the insane goals of the Democrat Party have actually turned out to be helping Trump.

Uber-liberal director, Rob Reiner, denounced Robert De Niro and other celebrities for their remarks against President Trump, by saying, “Stop! You’re helping Trump!” Reiner is right. They have inadvertently  become the committee to reelect Trump.

3. It’s the economy. Unemployment is at a 16-year low, and the consumer sentiment levels are at near record highs. When all the background noise settles, and voters with good paying jobs, stand before the lever to cast their vote—the thought of returning to failed Democrat economic policies will horrify them.

4. Donald Trump has plenty of time to win back those who have turned against him. Listen to Jake Novak, senior editor at CNBC: “Both party establishments still need a vote-getting leader and President Trump already has the White House leadership role they covet. He has enormous executive power at his fingertips and the ability to win over some doubters with just the passage of time.”

5. The other side still looks far worse. Chuck Schumer annoys his base, let alone the rest of us.  Elizabeth Warren is a shrill-throated hater of the white middle-class worker.  Bernie Sanders’ economic “Plan 9 from Outer Space” plays well, only because pot has been legalized on campus.  Maxine Waters is a walking VOTE FOR TRUMP machine.  Nancy Pelosi is, well, Nancy Pelosi.

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is a gift to Republicans. Even Bill Maher said “”If you want to run a campaign based on reparations and concentration camps, then it’s going to be very hard to win the election.”

6. Millions are praying for our nation. There is no way that the fervent prayer of millions will go unheeded in heaven. Sometimes the early stages of revival look as if things are getting worse before they get better.

I know Satan is writhing in agony right now.  He knows his time is short.  He knows what God is about to do.  He is in a futile rage against the inevitable answer.  He is frantically spewing deception to make the anointed vessels of God think that no answer is coming.

7.This is the big one: Trump is here by divine appointment. Trump will survive.  Not because he’s perfect.  Not because his base is fiercely loyal.  He will survive even though he is hard for some Christians to take.  He is here by divine appointment.  Can you hear all the heads exploding?  Yes, you heard me right—he is here because God set him in the White House.

Today Maxine Waters said that God has raised her up to bring Trump down.  See if you can guess how that is going to turn out.

Donald Trump is here to wreck and dismantle. He is here to apply strong medicine to a self-destructive nation that has turned its back on God.

Nothing else explains why this President is still standing after the cruelest and most unrelenting attack on any leader in American history.  More importantly, nothing else explains why none of this has broken his spirit.   Deal with it.  Someone Who is way bigger than you and me wants him right where he is, doing just what he is doing.

Biden would be Obama’s third term

Lost in all the rhetorical dust is this chilling fact: Biden is Obama’s third term. He is—pure and simple—a return to Obama misery. Joe is a shill for Barack. He is a carnival barker for the return of the most failed political sideshow ever.  His campaign slogan should be “REFILL THE SWAMP.”

Okay, before you read anymore, let me tell you, I take no joy in writing blogs like this.  As I have often said, someone else, far more qualified, was supposed to take this mantle, but they didn’t. I just want to win souls, see the sick healed, and bring revival to churches. But, it is what it is so here goes…

We are watching a masterful use of misdirection. The Democrat Party unleashed its screaming Left-wing fringe for a reason. Presidential candidates Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, and Mayor Pete, are utterly unelectable. They are there to make even a mediocre choice a relief.

Representatives Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Maxine Waters, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are there to gross out the Liberals, and to make them yearn for adult supervision. They are all players in a stunt to rebrand and sanitize Uncle Joe. But no matter what, he remains that unwanted snuggler, and a servant of Obama most high.

That is why you see him rocketing in the polls and why he is suddenly the front-runner. Democrats are supposed to think: JOE BIDEN!−WHAT A RELIEF!

We as Christians need to see through this maze of smoke and mirrors, and face the ugly truth: Obama is trying to come back to power through a surrogate. I knew it when, in a thinly veiled attempt at disguise, Obama said he would not endorse Biden for president and Biden said he would not seek the endorsement. 

In Obama’s mind he never left. He simply put his sleeper cells in place.  He put them in the FBI to get warrants and spy on Donald Trump. He worked the adoring media to make life hell for Trump. He did everything within his power to create chaos and mischief for the new President.

Why is he so callous and bitter? One reason is that he is watching his ‘legacy’ (and, I’m being kind there) being dismantled.  Why is he so bent on staying in power? He hates America, Israel, and the Faith that makes us great.  Am I being harsh? NO! His malice is well documented.

Judge for yourself the number of times Obama acted in direct hostility to the Bible.  https://mariomurilloministries.wordpress.com/2015/08/19/americas-most-biblically-hostile-u-s-president-3/

He takes credit for the Trump economy, even though his policies: failed healthcare, immigration, foreign policy, and Leftist court appointments nearly drove us under. He refers to himself gratuitously in every speech he gives.  He is the first President in our history who bashed his successor in the White House.

The single reason they are pushing for impeachment is that they are convinced President Trump will be reelected. They see no other way to stop him. If there was nothing else but the economy, Trump would have the upper hand, but there is so much more. Biden is the only other thing they can think of.

Obama wants power. He wants Israel brought down. He wants to punish the American church. I pray God helps you see what is really happening here.

Joe Biden will bring back all the convoluted and tangled ideas of Obama. He will operate at the behest of his true boss. He will have zero ideas on how to protect us, bring prosperity, or fix anything. He will be the most powerful hand puppet in the history of the world.

Why should you reject this man? A million reasons flood my mind, but let’s focus on just one: Obama is the architect of the most hare-brained lie in recent history: That Trump colluded with Russia. Two years after the most expensive investigation ever, he still pumps the lie to his lackeys.  But, as this investigation by the newly appointed special counsel gets to the source of the FISA Warrant, Obama’s prints will be all over it.

But there is one final mind-numbing lie you must swallow, if you are to believe Donald Trump colluded with Russia. You must then believe that Russia conspired to rebuild the American economy, the military, and our energy companies—all things that make Russia weaker.  Why would Putin put Trump in office knowing it would jeopardize Russia’s hold on the Middle East, strengthen Israel, and make Europe wake up to their NATO responsibilities?

If you believe all that, then Biden is the candidate for you.

YOU—NOT TRUMP—ARE THE REAL TARGET.

 

If any part of your ministry is based on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or YouTube, you are already in trouble.  It was not until now that the real attack on Christianity in America was revealed. I know that the church is about to be given an ultimatum to either change our beliefs or cease to operate in America;

People love to call me an alarmist. But I know what I am talking about. The radical Left has declared a very unusual kind of war on us—a war that Christian leaders will not admit is happening−and who remain totally unprepared to fight.

The Trump victory inflamed the Left so much that two years later they are still totally rejecting the election and denying the rule of law.  Here are facts you must face:

Fake news: NBC poured 400 million dollars into Buzz Feed.  Buzz Feed released a tsunami of fake news that portrayed Trump as a pervert in Russia.  Only Trump was never there and we now know the entire incident was made up to destroy his reputation. Buzz Feed is only one of thousands of outlets that live to target you. The chilling part is that NBC, a gigantic and enormously powerful corporation was willing to undermine America.

The California revolution: Behaving as if America had been taken over in a coup, California has declared itself a separate state for the resistance.  California Congresswoman Maxine Waters is once again moving for impeachment.   She began this impeachment crusade even before Trump took office! Again, Trump is not the real target.  California is a rogue state bent on changing your way of life.

What you must understand—the thing you must get—is, they are not just going after Trump—they are going after you.  I am talking about 80% of all Evangelicals and 63 million voters…especially young people who voted for Trump.   Young conservative Christians are in the cross hairs on campus for a reason. The media will now begin to attack Trump supporters as never before.

Get this! They are not just calling Trump a racist—they are calling you a racist.  They are not saying Trump hates Gays, Mexicans, and Muslim immigrants—they are saying you do.

According to them, supporting Trump makes you a xenophobic, despicable racist and hater, who must have your rights revoked. They are trying to figure out a way to deny you employment and to deny your children an education.

Their election night 4-alarm Leftist hissy fit is only the opening act.  Expect strikes, violent demonstrations, and a towering litany of acts of “civil disobedience.” As bad as it is now, just wait until the next election begins in earnest. You will witness vileness and venom you never thought possible in America.

Here is what I said on January 18th, 2017:  “Obama is not going away—He will lead the charge.  His true mission to undermine America will kick in now that he is no longer restrained by the presidency.  He will lead a confederation of movie stars, politicians, billionaires, Muslim leaders and minions in the United Nations. Trump legislation will be throttled at every turn.  The media will launch a withering nonstop assault on every word he says.” 

Not only did all of that happen, it is only now we are learning of the blind loyalty to Obama in the deep state and the crimes his toadies in the FBI were willing to perform at his behest. The Democrat Party is feverishly reconstructing America into a land that is hostile toward conservatives and Christians. With Obama’s input they are imagining a post-Christian era. A nation without guns, without the protections of the Constitution, and a nation controlled by a single party−which will be openly Marxist, totalitarian, and atheist.

As I said, they are not going after Trump they are going after you and me.  If this is true, how then should we prepare?  Here are my heartfelt convictions of what we must do NOW. 

1. Don’t let them bully you, learn from history.  It is 1776 all over again.  An oppressive regime has illegitimately claimed power over us.  British rule then is very much like Leftist rulers now.  Loyalists joined British forces in oppressing the colonists, and told them that their elected officials were not valid.  Now they are telling us that Republicans are not valid.

The Leftist elites are not British monarchs or red coats, but they are telling us what we can, and cannot, believe.  They are seizing our rights.  They are seeking to void the Constitution. T.V. Networks and billion dollar companies are working to overrule not just a free and fair election, but to overrule anyone living a God fearing life.

 

The challenge of the church today is the same as it was in 1776.  Revolutionary war Christians understood that they could not sit on the sidelines, as their rights were being destroyed.   Their call was to stand for freedom.

2. We must fight with the weapons of God! Thank God, we are not waging physical war, but we are fighting a spiritual war. To fight, we must pray and speak the Word of God.  We cannot afford to listen to those who say we should not speak out against Islam, immorality, or far Left totalitarianism.

Some ask “won’t this make us look unloving and turn lost souls off to the Gospel?”  On the contrary, when we speak out with the power of the Holy Spirit it will shatter the strong delusion that is pervading our society. The demonic spell that they are under will be broken.

The early colonists knew they were building a nation that would be a lighthouse of the Gospel to the world.  Do we realize what they did? Do you see how the iron curtain that these celebrities and media tyrants are ringing down on us will silence the Gospel, and leave Israel at the mercy of all her enemies?

3. Build on prophecy: If you believe that Trump is a miracle that is a type of King Cyrus, then act like it! Seize this divine opportunity to stand with policies that best reflect our values.  Don’t chicken out now that the heat is on. I can’t believe how many Evangelical leaders have their head in the sand! Just because this evil seems fantastic and unacceptable to your sensibilities, does not make it any less real.

With the very same breath that we call Satan a liar…we must call falsehood out!  Preachers all over America must ring the bell of liberty in their pulpits, and call out the intellectual frauds who are destroying our freedom.

They are not harmless actors and singers, they are agents of a Satan inspired tyranny that are not coming after Trump, they are coming after you. But remember, if God be for you who can be against you?

Let’s shed the artificial niceness. It is nothing more than cowardice. There is too much at stake to be fretting over “how we are perceived.”  We must understand that we have lost elections for all the wrong reasons. Too long we have been the Silent Majority! It is because we didn’t unify…it is because too many preachers have hoodwinked us into apathetic acceptance of this takeover.

The awakened believer must link with other awakened believers. They must dump the religious culture of compromise and huddle with those willing to pay the price to let God use them to transform America back to ‘One Nation Under God.’ There are millions of us!

Oh, how the enemy has lied to the American church. If we find our voice—if we don’t break ranks—this Leftist lie will die an early death. Come on, child of God, what are you waiting for?  Don’t say this isn’t your battle! How is that even possible−when you are the real target?

 

Seven Reasons

Every day someone comes up with a new reason to think Trump is finished.  However, the FBI found out conspiring against the President backfires.  The media went for ratings bashing Trump only to lose ratings and credibility.

Mueller’s witch-hunt investigation is flaming out as political disaster.  Americans can see the insanity of it.   Here it is in a nutshell: We can prove that Hillary colluded with the Russians to produce a fake dossier that was used to start an investigation into Russian collusion with Trump that can’t be proven.  Got it?

-Comey said his new book would do Trump in.  Instead, it was spit balls at a battleship.

-CBS believed it had the silver bullet to kill Trump.  They gleefully believed that a Sunday night interview with a porn star would be the end of Trump.  Monday came, and they joined a long list of disappointed Trump haters whose weapons did not prosper.

-400 newspapers declare war on Trump.  You know what will happen.

-Michael Cohen’s testimony was prematurely celebrated by the left. They though it was a magic bulled for impeachment until they remembered that their star witness is not just a liar…he is a convicted liar. Only 37% of Americans found his testimony to be credible.

Trump will not be impeached.  He will not even be censured.  None of this noise spells doom for Republicans in the mid term elections.  You don’t need to worry about Donald Trump.   Let me give you 7 reasons why all the attacks on Trump will fail.

1.The poll numbers are skewed against him. Scientists have shown that when people have a favorite candidate who is attacked by the press they go silent. They still support the person, they just won’t tell you.  Many, many more than we hear about still support Trump.

Even so, Democratic pundits are dismayed at the way Trump survives.  They were counting on a major drop in support after Trump’s meeting with Putin. It just never happened.

2. Americans have a deep sense of fair play.  They go for the underdog.  People see the flagrant, wanton and disgraceful attacks on Trump by the media.  They are giving him a break for that.  They also understand his rookie mistakes, he is not a politician… we didn’t want a politician, remember?

Uber liberal director Rob Reiner denounced Robert De Niro and other celebrities for their remarks against President Trump, saying it only helps the president. Reiner is right.

Remember when someone destroyed Trump’s star on the Hollywood walk of fame?  Do you think it made more people dislike Trump? Acts like these are why a growing number of independent voters say they are disgusted by the unfair treatment of Trump.

3. It’s the economy. Unemployment is at a 16-year low, and the consumer sentiment levels are at near record highs. When all the background noise settles, and the voter, with a good paying job, stands before the lever to vote—the thought of returning to an Obama economy will horrify.

4. He has plenty of time to win back those who have turned against him. Listen to Jake Novak senior editor at CNBC: “Both party establishments still need a vote-getting leader and President Trump already has the White House leadership role they covet. He has enormous executive power at his fingertips and the ability to win over some doubters with just the passage of time.”

5. The other side still looks way worse. Beto O’Rourke confuses his base, let alone the rest of us.  Elizabeth Warren is a shrill throated hater of the white middle-class worker.  Bernie Sanders’ economy from Mars plays well only because pot has been legalized on campus.  Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has made socialism so unpopular it has 18% approval. Maxine Waters is a VOTE FOR TRUMP machine.  Nancy Pelosi is, well, Nancy Pelosi.

6. Millions are praying for our nation. There is no way that the fervent prayer of millions will go unheeded in heaven. Sometimes the early stages of revival look as if things are getting worse before they get better.

I know Satan is writhing in agony right now.  He knows his time is short.  He knows what God is about to do.  He is in a futile rage against the inevitable answer.  He is spewing deception to make the anointed vessels of God think that no answer is coming.

7. This is the big one: Trump is here by divine appointment. Trump will survive.  Not because he’s perfect.  Not because his base is fiercely loyal.  He will survive even though he is hard for some Christians to take.  He is here by divine appointment.  Can you hear heads exploding?  Yes, you heard me right—he is here because God set him in the White House.

Today Maxine Waters said God has raised her up to bring Trump down.  See if you can guess how that is going to turn out.

He is here to wreck and dismantle. He is here to here to apply strong medicine to a self-destructive nation.

Nothing else explains why he is still standing after the cruelest and most unrelenting attack on any leader in American history.  More importantly, nothing else explains why none of this has broken his spirit.   Deal with it.  Someone way bigger than you and me wants him right where he is doing just what he is doing.

Ruthless and impetuous describes Trump.  Nevertheless, he is here until he fulfills his purpose.

Urgent final remarks:  To all the intercessors who cried out for a national miracle—you got it.  It’s just a much rougher package than you imagined.

He will put another conservative in the Supreme Court.  He is standing with Israel.  He is against abortion.  He is working to stop other nations from abusing and harming us.

Thoughtful believers see past the fog.  They see what I see, they are praying for his protection, for wisdom and for God’s continued favor.

The big question is why is Trump here?  Here comes the chilling answer:  Trump is buying time for the sleeping church to wake up and do her job.  Trump is a divine stop-gap that appeared out of mercy.

Nothing could be worse than for us to waste this miracle.  Nothing could be more grieving to God than for the American church to be ungrateful for a man—a rough customer to be sure—who is taking the hits for standing for all the values that we love.

As I said before, he will not be impeached.  He will not even be censured.  The next four years and more are his.  Hate me, laugh at me, despise my writing…it does not matter, I know it’s true.

I have never been prouder

Mr. President, you caved in on the wall and I have never been prouder of you. The wall must be built. It is immoral not to have the wall.  The wall will be built.  So why am I saying that I am proud of Trump for caving on the wall?

All your enemies are parading right now and you are being ridiculed.  But I know the real story.  You did not lose or fail.

This will be the blog that I will get the most criticism for writing. However, I have never been so certain that I am speaking the truth. Please do not be lazy and judge me before you read this.

Look with me at 1 Kings 3: 16 Now two women who were harlots came to the king, and stood before him. 17 And one woman said, “O my lord, this woman and I dwell in the same house; and I gave birth while she was in the house. 18 Then it happened, the third day after I had given birth, that this woman also gave birth. And we were together; no one was with us in the house, except the two of us in the house. 19 And this woman’s son died in the night, because she lay on him. 20 So she arose in the middle of the night and took my son from my side, while your maidservant slept, and laid him in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom. 21 And when I rose in the morning to nurse my son, there he was, dead. But when I had examined him in the morning, indeed, he was not my son whom I had borne.”

22 Then the other woman said, “No! But the living one is my son, and the dead one is your son.” And the first woman said, “No! But the dead one is your son, and the living one is my son.” Thus they spoke before the king.

23 And the king said, “The one says, ‘This is my son, who lives, and your son is the dead one’; and the other says, ‘No! But your son is the dead one, and my son is the living one.’ ” 24 Then the king said, “Bring me a sword.” So they brought a sword before the king. 25 And the king said, “Divide the living child in two, and give half to one, and half to the other.”

26 Then the woman whose son was living spoke to the king, for she yearned with compassion for her son; and she said, “O my lord, give her the living child, and by no means kill him!”

But the other said, “Let him be neither mine nor yours, but divide him.”

27 So the king answered and said, “Give the first woman the living child, and by no means kill him; she is his mother.”

Look deep into the eyes of Nancy Pelosi and what do you see? A grasping, cold heartless individual. Do you believe for one moment she cares about the government workers who aren’t getting paid? How far would she go to keep the government shut down. She would have kept it going no matter how much harm it did to families. She wouldn’t care if people were devastated.

When the two women stood before Solomon the real mother would not give into the false mother. Not for anything. But that changed when the life of the child was threatened. She was willing to lose. She was willing to be labelled the false mother.

Donald Trump loves American families and especially the American worker. The Democrat party on the other hand, does not—not even a little.

Does Trump care that this made him look weak…when he is actually being strong? Does he care that Nancy will do a victory dance with all the pomp of Jezebel in the Old Testament? No he does not. Neither does God, He knows the real story. Just as He brought justice through Solomon, He will reveal the true villains in this situation.

When it became clear that the damage would escalate to the point of doing great harm to families—when he realized that this was not a real estate deal like the ones he mentions in his bestselling book—when he realized that Pelosi could care less if it lasted a year and completely destroyed people—he, like that mom in the Bible, gave up his right to be right.

To the 800,000 of you who will now get paid remember: It was Donald Trump and not Nancy Pelosi who put you before politics. And by the way…Donald Trump will get the wall.

Mr. President, even some of your own will turn on you now. But I know…more importantly God knows, what is deep in your heart—what you did, and why you did it.  I have never been prouder of you. God bless you.

A Lying Spirit

Mr. President stand your ground. Child of God hold on just a little longer. God is about to judge a lying spirit that is blanketing America.

The Left has moved from lies to outright lies. The left has moved from backing down when they are caught lying, to not caring if they are caught.

Mario, why are so many being fooled right now? Why is light called dark and dark light? Why is evil and hate called good while truth and love are called evil? Is it possible for a lying demon to blind the masses? Is there a time when minds can be manipulated en masse? Yes!  The Bible calls it a lying spirit.

In fact, that spirit can come by the direction of God in order to judge people for their wickedness. 2 Thessalonians 2:11 says, “And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

That lying spirit is seen in Acts 8: 9 “But there was a certain man called Simon, who previously practiced sorcery in the city and astonished the people of Samaria, claiming that he was someone great, 10 to whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, “This man is the great power of God.”

But God stirred me deeply and said that the lying spirit that possesses the left to lie and persecute their enemies—including the president, will be judged.  What will that judgement look like?

God will allow lies to grow to such an extreme that it will soon nauseate Americans. The glorification of perversion, the bullying of children, the parade of insane ideas will fill the vat and sicken America. God will see to this. Not only this, but He will bring high profile liars to an end. He will do this right on time.  Again, child of God hold on! Mr. President stand your ground!

The condition of America at this moment mirrors 1 Kings 22.  Ahab king of Israel wants to talk Jehoshaphat king of Judah into joining him in battle to win back Ramoth Gilead from Syria. Though willing, Jehoshaphat wants to be sure God is in this venture.

Ahab summons 400 prophets. They all say that victory is assured. Jehoshaphat is bothered by the mass agreement and asks if there is one more prophet. Ahab’s response says it all: “There is still one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may inquire of the Lord; but I hate him, because he does not prophesy good concerning me, but evil.”-1 Kings 22:8

They send a man to go get Micaiah.  What this messenger says to the prophet is like holding up a mirror up to current America: “Then the messenger who had gone to call Micaiah spoke to him, saying, “Now listen, the words of the prophets with one accord encourage the king. Please, let your word be like the word of one of them, and speak encouragement.”-1 Kings 22: 13

Right now there is only one message allowed, only one viewpoint can be spoken. Deviate from that and you will labeled a racist, homophobe and an Islamophobe.  They will make things up to discredit those who oppose.

Now witness the man of God giving the proper response to this indecent request: “And Micaiah said, ‘As the Lord lives, whatever the Lord says to me, that I will speak.’” That must be our conviction right now!

Now we come to one of the greatest moments of courage in history. Micaiah walks into a scene of crushing intimidation.  Two kings wearing royal robes sit on thrones staring down at him. One has murder in his eyes. Around him are 400 false prophets who have all given the exact same “word from the Lord.” A vast crowd overflows the royal hall.  A dead silence falls when Ahab orders the prophet to prophesy.

Think about it. Micaiah tells Ahab he will be killed in the battle for Ramoth Gilead. It goes even deeper. He reveals to Ahab that a lying spirit who has put lies in the mouth of all the prophets. This is the judgement of God—to fool Ahab to go to his death.

This deception is so deep that even telling Ahab about it will not stop him. Micaiah says in verse 23, “Therefore look! The Lord has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these prophets of yours, and the Lord has declared disaster against you.” Ahab is seduced by his audience of prophets.  He goes to war.  A random arrow finds a kink in his armor. He dies right on schedule.

Beloved, don’t think for one moment that this web of lies will decide the nation’s fate. The enemies of God looked invincible in 1 Kings 22. The lies looked unstoppable.  Yet, the mighty God acted.  Believe me the lying spirit on our nation will be judged.

Do you think God isn’t feeling the prayers of millions of His own in America?  Pray and you will get confirmation that what I say is true.  Hold on Mr. President. The polls are lying. The threats are lies. The hand of God is about to destroy the lies!

THE CHURCH CAN BE MIGHTY IF

Two dumb ideas used by celebrity preachers as an excuse to remain silent when they should be mustering the army of God to do her duty.   She is losing influence every day because a confused view of her duty.

These ideas are putting the church back into Obama era apathy at the worst possible time.  Think of what is at stake.  The Supreme Court, the economy, national security, and everything we hold dear will be lost.  Everything Trump tried to do will vanish in an instant. The floodgates of immorality will open.

Here are the two bone-headed ideas.  1. All government is from God and we must submit and not mention politics.   2. A candidate must be sinless or we are choosing the lesser of two evils. 

And here are the verses abused to justify those two bone-headed ideas:

Romans 13: 1 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. 4 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.”

It’s dumb to say stay out of politics and submit to government not matter what:  No sane Christian believes Hitler was God’s will for Germany.  God raised up divine retribution on him through the nations of the world.  God works through people to restrain evil.  The church must do her duty to restrain evil.

“The authorities that exist”: This phrase means authority from God, not rogue authority.  Satan is rogue authority.   God has always balanced the threat of tyranny with authorities He raises up: “God’s minister to execute wrath.”

Moreover, it says “No ruling authority from God is a terror to good works.”  They do not persecute God’s people or enact laws to ban the Gospel.  So what do you call authority that is a terror to good works?

German believers abused these same verses to justify their apathy.  Dietrich Bonhoeffer could not open the eyes of the German church about the horrors of Hitler.  His radio addresses warned Germany.  Ironically, he blamed the fad of cheap grace and their blind submission.  They rejected his warnings and the consequence was the bloodiest world war and 6 million Jews annihilated.

Again, the point is that God works through people to stop evil.  The church’s silence in the face of evil is not noble or virtuous, it is itself evil.

Nations can and do pick evil leaders.  Even Israel picked an evil leader: 1 Samuel 8:6 “But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, “Give us a king to judge us.” So Samuel prayed to the Lord. 7 And the Lord said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.”   Obama was never God’s choice for America.   We have a mountainous stockpile of wreckage to prove it.

When evil reigns, God begins a complicated process to reestablish justice. Human history is messy.  God works in that mess.  We want story book endings but humanity is complicated.  Jehovah works like a surgeon skillfully cutting around vital organs to get at the cancer.  Jesus spoke of the wheat and tares having to grow together until the end—otherwise the wheat would also be lost.   We have a Biblical mandate to discern and get involved in the work God is doing to save our nation.

2. It’s dumb to waste your vote because you “refuse to pick the lesser of two evils.”  You must discern where God is working and support it.  God uses flawed people: Daniel was probably shocked to discover that God choose to use Nebuchadnezzar.

Instead of asking who is without sin, we should be asking where is God working?  

Look at what Paul did:  Acts 23:6 “But when Paul perceived that the one part were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question. 7 And when he had so said, there arose a dissension between the Pharisees and the Sadducees: and the multitude was divided. 8 For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit: but the Pharisees confess both. 9 And there arose a great cry: and the scribes that were of the Pharisees’ part arose, and strove, saying, We find no evil in this man: but if a spirit or an angel hath spoken to him, let us not fight against God.”

Jesus said that the Sadducees and Pharisees were both evil.  So was Paul choosing the lesser of two evils by siding with the Pharisees?  Or, was he discerning where God could work?   Right now it is Trump He can work with.  But Trump needs a Congress he can work with.  We had better work with God in this next election. 

Still don’t know what you must do?  From Nancy Pelosi to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democrats have vowed to open borders, seize guns, redistribute wealth, skyrocket taxes, and force the church to “evolve.”  The American church still does not see the danger, and that itself is the danger.

Evil is not hard to spot.  It hates, Israel, Christianity, and Biblical morality, the family, and the unborn.   The Democratic Party wears this badge of hate proudly. What else do you need to know?

These dumb ideas are not scriptural. They will play into the hands of those who would take away our rights and forever change America’s system of government.  It will be impossible to withstand the wave of falsehood and hatred in the next election if we do not repudiate these crippling dumb ideas.

But if we see them for what they are, rebuke them and submit to the Holy Spirit…even a small number can create a mighty transformation.
