4 QUESTIONS YOU MUST ASK BEFORE TONIGHT’S PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE

1. Will Biden show up? His campaign knows what a weak candidate he is, so they have practiced avoidance—by hiding him in his basement—and refusing to let him say anything with substance. Even so, Biden has been a gaffe-machine; he recently accused Trump of killing “200 million Americans;” said that guns “have killed 150 million;” and that he (Biden) “got to the Senate 180 years ago.”

Yesterday, Kamala Harris blasted Trump for rushing to fill the now vacant Supreme Court seat. Then, she refused to answer any questions. That too, is their strategy.

Democrat handlers are relying on one thing: Leftist hatred of Trump. Their plan is to run out the clock, play in a manner so as not to lose, and keep their candidates from actually campaigning or saying anything. That is why it is possible for a last-minute no-show by Biden. It is quite possible that they see only a downside to a debate and will be desperate enough to invent another China Virus excuse in order to keep Joe in the basement. Democrats are not above the most absurd shenanigans in situations like this.

2.How will they feed Joe his answers and coach him during the debate? Technology offers some fancy gizmos for Biden. I have no idea how they will do it. No doubt consulting with Las Vegas magicians and mentalists. However, this tactic has a great chance of backfiring, since it is very obvious when Joe is mouthing words from his handlers. Still, you can bet that the same party that fed Hillary the questions from Donna Brazile ahead of the debate in 2016, can find some kind of feeding tube for  Biden.

This just in: Debra Heine  Writing for American Greatness today confirmed. The Biden campaign is refusing President Trump’s reasonable request to allow a third party to inspect the ears of the candidates for electronic devices or transmitters ahead of the first presidential debate Tuesday night, according to Fox News. 

In addition to refusing to have Biden’s ears inspected, his campaign has also declined Trump’s demand that the candidates take a drug test prior to the Fox News debate. The showdown begins at 9 p.m. ET Tuesday and will be moderated by “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace.

 

3. Will Chris Wallace show his bias against Trump? The choice of Chris Wallace is a stroke of genius by Democrats. If they had chosen a talking head from CNN, MSNBC, or any of the legacy networks, millions would cry foul. But to find a guy from FOX News who doesn’t like Trump, is a coup. So, don’t be surprised if Wallace starts debating Trump and downplaying Biden’s fumbles.

4. Is Biden faking his mental lapses to lower expectations? Think of the movie Rocky 2. Rocky’s manager Mickey Goldmill ordered Rocky to begin his rematch with Apollo Creed by fighting right-handed. Then at the right moment he was to switch back and fight left-handed, and catch his opponent flat-footed.

Trump would do well to disregard everything he has seen from Biden recently—even the Democrat presidential debates. Trump must be ready to face a pit-bull, even if it turns out to be an aged porch-hound. I remember when, back in the day, Biden debated Paul Ryan in the Vice-Presidential debates. Biden destroyed Ryan. It wasn’t even close. I hope Trump’s people have reviewed the video of that debate, with due diligence.  Then again, Trump would have been a lot different than Paul Ryan even when Joe was in his prime.

The bottom line is this: If Biden even shows up, if Biden fumbles his ear-piece, if Chris Wallace is even marginally objective, if ‘Sleepy Joe’ Biden shows up, this election could very well be decided tonight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

P.S. A Special message to those who support Mario Murillo’s message to America

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

IT WAS NOT UNTIL WE HIT THE STREETS OF FRESNO

It was not until we hit the streets of Fresno, it was not until we met the voracious hunger for God in the people, and only after the number of people being saved and healed exceeded anything we had seen before—it was only after all that, that it hit us: How evil! How wrong! How devastatingly misguided it was, to close the churches.

Monique Hernandez is praying with a woman. The photograph says it all. You can feel the love of God. You can feel the desperation and cry of that new-found daughter of God. I do not know her back story, but I know her future is glorious.

The street-level miracles almost seem to make the crusade tent unnecessary. On the other hand, if this is what is happening before the tent goes up, and before the lights, chairs and PA system are set—what will God do in the tent itself? What will happen when the hurting and lost come for miracles?

For weeks now, our team from Inner City Action Stockton, led by Frank Saldana, has shared the Gospel in Fresno under an open heaven. They have invaded homeless camps. They have undertaken a massive door to door campaign. They have given away nearly a thousand large boxes of food and prayed unapologetic prayer over countless families. Again, and again, they find open hearts. The neighborhoods greet them as if they knew the Bible verse that says, “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things” (Isaiah 52:7).

This report is both a blessing and a rebuke. The church should have never surrendered her First Amendment right to freedom of religion. However, what Satan meant for evil, God is using for good.

You must clearly understand what we are doing in Fresno, and why. Something will be attempted here that effects all of us, no matter where we live. This will not be a peaceful protest. This will not be an outdoor worship rally in protest of the lockdown. This will not be a friendly and light-hearted community event. It must be clearly understood that we are bringing a full-blown soul winning miracle crusade to Fresno.

We don’t care about reputation. We are not trying to be liked. We are in battle mode. We are marching to the orders and promise of 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…”

I know how Satan works. It may appear that we have unchallenged access to Fresno, but I know better. I know that it can be a trap! I am bracing for an October surprise from the enemy. It may come from the rabble who control certain neighborhoods. It may be demented protestors. It might be Sacramento stepping in to shut us down at the very last moment. It may even be local politicians.

But God has His people here, too! God gave me this promise: Acts 18:9-11, “Now the Lord spoke to Paul in the night by a vision, “Do not be afraid, but speak, and do not keep silent; for I am with you, and no one will attack you to hurt you; for I have many people in this city.” And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.”

In this blog I am asking for prayer for Mechelle and me, because, as a couple, we have made a firm resolve to resist the enemy in whatever form he takes. We are utterly convinced that we are in the right, and, most importantly, that we are in the will of God.

If you would like to volunteer to be a part of this miracle in Fresno please use this link  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdPkEJaMO2-62_WGHWqycedQ1KD_eEhqi7wgGXLnHvyrOIn3w/viewform?fbclid=IwAR1hCBOx3_H-QeLMyZCzb0DBgtG6v4lG1-2-pwGz_k6lCvpnC2WzP5Hee40

I am sure of these things: The day the leftist overlords of California announce that all the churches can reopen, will never arrive. They will put it off and continue to put it off, so long as the church allows them to do it. We are not in rebellion—they are. They have invented restrictions that no longer make sense, and that were never legal in the first place. They have done this out of their antipathy toward Christianity.

The other fact I am certain of, is that we must civilly disobey those who tell us not to preach the Gospel. I believe what God said. He has many people in high levels of authority here who understand that cities in California desperately need soul winning miracle crusades. And that, by the Grace of God, is what we are going to do in Fresno.

THE CHRISTIANS WHO ARE GOING TO VOTE FOR BIDEN ANYWAY

I will hammer away at church hypocrisy as much as I can until election day. In this updated post I go after the root cause of the moral delusion that allows Christians to believe they can vote for Biden…and worse, that they don’t need to vote for Trump.

We had a pandemic that should have ignited reverence and repentance in Christians. But it didn’t. The big reason is modern preaching. That widespread moral confusion spills over into Christian sentiment about Biden.

Here is my question: How can they call themselves Christians and do such an anti-Christian act as voting for Biden? The answer is simple: modern preaching. Modern preaching has produced the most Biblically illiterate generation of church-goers ever.

Because of modern preaching, Christians don’t know what they believe beyond their false vision of a loving, tolerant and generous God who caters to their every whim. A God to overlook their carnal lifestyle.

Because of modern preaching a moral choice is not as important as ‘feeling loved.’

Because of modern preaching, many who call themselves Christians cannot handle persecution. And this is a critical point. Why? Because the platform that Biden is running on is hatred for Trump. And the hatred of Trump coming from the media and Hollywood makes it uncomfortable for an ambivalent believer to take a stand. They want to be accepted…the same motivation that drives their celebrity pastor. Acceptance!

Certain Christians want him because he is not Trump. But this is not a conviction but a concession like the concessions Christians have made in other areas of morality. Again because of modern preaching.

It is true that Biden is not Trump thank God, but believers need to be clear about what their vote for Biden will do to the world and what it says about them. I beg you to open your heart and mind to facts.

Again, these are facts not opinions:

There’s undeniable evidence of cognitive decline in Joe Biden. He often looks confused, the man can’t finish a sentence. He has the rude angry outbursts that accompany this form of decline.  He continued to give unwanted attention to females long after being warned. It’s almost as if he forgot to stop.

Back to the issue of cognitive decline. Below are his actual words as he addressed the coronavirus. Teleprompter and all.

He has embraced the full compliment of socialist evil embedded in the Democrat platform. He wants Beto O’Rourke to take away our guns. He wants to reinstate laws that oppress Christian bakers and businesses. Not opinion. Things he has just said. He is so desperate to become President that he has vowed to veer left and rally those who support the agendas of Planned Parenthood, the LGBTQ activists, and socialism. He has even made a deal with the other devil, Bernie Sanders.

China lied about Covid 19. That was a devastating attack on the United States. Joe Biden has made a career of giving in to the Chinese government. He even sided with them after the pandemic started accusing Trump of racism for stopping flights from China. Attacks from China are only beginning. That of itself makes Biden a disaster and the absolute worst choice.

Joe Biden is the consort of Barack Obama, who has consistently been the most hostile President in history toward the Bible. How can you call yourself a Christian and vote for Joe Biden? He is too weak to resist Obama’s war on the church. He will serve at the behest of the worst enemies of both the church and the nation. He will go after every value Christianity stands for.

It is clear what Joe Biden will do—his every move will be anti-Christian—so how can you believe you are innocent and not do everything in your power to stop him?  The only way to stop Biden is to vote for Trump. No one else, no matter how saintly you esteem them to be, has any chance of winning. And if Trump loses, America will belong to the enemies of God.

This pandemic has shut down the American economy. How can you call yourself a Christian and vote to elect a cure that is worse than the disease? Should the economy be in the hands of Biden?

Many liberal governors will do all they can to keep churches shut down long after the virus has subsided. How can you call yourself a Christian and allow an enemy of the church and an ally to these governors to put the finishing touches on an already dangerous situation?

Come on—ask yourself, do you seriously believe Biden will be able to rebuild America after all the damage this pandemic has done?  Trump alone possesses the skill and the will to bring us back from disaster. China fears Donald Trump but their mouth waters at the thought of a Biden presidency and a Democrat-run Congress.

 

This corona virus is the warning shot across the bow to a nation that has filled up the cup of iniquity with the wrath of God. So far, many in the church are still drowsy, indifferent and ignorant of the two most important facts that exist in this hour.

1. America must repent or be diminished. We have shoved God away. It grieves God that lost souls go after depravity, but it also grieves God that so-called Christians still don’t get the urgency of this hour and the utter necessity of radical repentance.

2. We must appreciate that Donald Trump is an act of mercy. He is a rough and tumble deliverer. Certainly, many have wished for a smoother, less combative President. The fact is that America, in her sin, has made it necessary for God to use strong medicine. We must appreciate that Trump was sent by God or suffer unspeakable consequences.

“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Ps. 11:3)

The foundations are being destroyed, and it is clear who the destroyers are…so how can you call yourself a Christian and vote for Biden?

THE BIBLE DOES NOT TELL YOU TO OBEY EVIL LAWS

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

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

Doesn’t the Bible tell us to obey them no matter what? Absolutely not. And it is shocking how many believers do not know their Bible or have been given false teaching.There is no verse in the Bible that tells you to obey evil government or laws. And again, if we don’t realize that now, before we sit back and let our nation be destroyed.

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

GOD HAS NOT CHANGED HIS MIND

Many are jobless. Many have loved ones who are sick. Their children are home from school and falling behind. The eateries, stores, and coffee shops they took for granted are now either closed or will only hand you stuff through the door. And the churches they used to attend are worshiping online.

They stare out the window at a strange new world with no idea how bad it’s going to get, and if or when things will return to normal.  Coronavirus has destroyed their theological innocence.

The Holy Spirit has given me a warning to pass on to every child of God. You had a dream. You had a vision. You were just about to start college, start a business, get married, start a family, write a book, build a building, get a patent on a new invention, or launch out in vibrant ministry for Christ. Then the world seemed to come to an end.

The Bible, and your God-given vision and dream are not beholden to human circumstances. The Book that contains the accounts of people who stopped plagues, raised the dead, and blinded armies isn’t going to cut you any slack. DO NOT THROW TOMORROW AWAY.

Now, the present reality is screaming at you that none of those dreams will ever come true. They say you must downgrade your hopes and dreams to a “new normal.” You must adapt to a shadow existence. That is a lethal lie from the pit of hell! I want this blog to be the electrode paddles that will kick-start your visionary heart once again.

GOD IS COMMANDING YOU—DO NOT THROW TOMORROW AWAY! GOD HAS NEVER CHANGED HIS MIND ABOUT YOUR FUTURE!

Do you honestly think that God didn’t know this was coming when He gave you that vision, idea, commission, or calling?  God didn’t just sit down and say, “Oh well, My child, I guess I won’t be able to do what I called you to do. I never factored in this virus thing.”

Furthermore, just because some have abused the truths of Faith and Provision, that does not change the truth about Faith and Provision. Romans 3:3 asks a burning question, “What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God?”

 

Giving up on faith because of the virus is like losing faith in your gun because a burglar got in your house. This crisis doesn’t mean our faith doesn’t work—this is what our faith is for!

Kenneth Hagin did not get his revelation of the faith message during an economic boom. He got it in the depths of the Great Depression. Hagin saw faith intervene in a time of grinding poverty.

Alexander Dowie didn’t launch his healing ministry when divine healing was all the rage. He did it after the bubonic plague killed 40 members of his church. After he launched his healing ministry, no one else died in his church, and an international ministry was born.

I remember when circumstances and outward appearances caused a great evangelist I knew to back off from an important part of his message. Over dinner he told me, “Mario, the poverty was so great in the Philippines that I couldn’t preach prosperity.” I corrected him by asking, “Would you also not preach healing because they were too sick?”

Don’t you dare throw tomorrow away! Joshua 3:5 is your verse: “Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will work wonders among you.”

What does ‘sanctify’ mean? It means clean up your act! This is not a time to be stunned by events. It’s time to train, prepare, pray, study and write the vision plainly so you can run with it. Fan the fading embers back into a roaring flame.

This crisis will go away. What will never go away is the regret of what you might have done for God if you hadn’t thrown it away. GOD  HAS NEVER CHANGED HIS MIND ABOUT YOUR FUTURE!

WHAT IT REALLY MEANS TO VOTE YOUR CONSCIENCE

“I am going to vote my conscience.” More often than not, the person who says that, actually means the opposite. They really mean, “I am going to do what gets me off the hook.” They are appeasing the secular culture that hates Trump.

This need to appease the culture, has created strange hypocrisies. Many American believers now accept same-sex marriage. They know what the Word of God says about sexual immorality, but they also know the price they will pay for openly opposing gay marriage, so they ‘virtue-signal.’ They say all kinds of ethereal sounding words, like being ‘compassionate’ and ‘tolerant,’ so as to look righteous and avoid persecution. Its pure double-talk.

When it comes to Trump, their hypocrisy swings to the other extreme. They go from a lax moral standard, to one that is not just strict—it is impossible. They want a sinless candidate. Sadly, Jesus is not running for office. However, as soon as these hypocrites saw the winds of culture turn against Jesus, they would not even vote for Him.

Isn’t it funny how this sinless standard was never a part of Christian circles until people started hating Trump? All candidates are imperfect, and yet Christians voted for them.

So, what is the honest definition of ‘voting your conscience’? Voting your conscience means to do the right thing. James 4:17 says, “Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.” This is why many who claim to vote their conscience are actually violating their conscience.

The Democrat Party has left no doubt about the evil they mean to do. They want a godless America. They want to kill babies at, and even after, the point of natural birth. They condone riots, looting, and even murder. Every city that Democrats control is a smoldering wreck. Do you want them to control the nation? How can you deny the apocalyptic devastation that would ensue if Joe Biden ever won the presidency?

At this point, if you deny these facts, you are practicing evil—you are an accomplice to evil. To use spiritual camouflage while doing this, only deepens your betrayal of God’s kingdom. It is wickedness.

And don’t forget their radical agenda for your church. It was not a virus, but their venom that shut down your church. They declared war on all churches, long before the pandemic. They are lying about their motives. That’s why churches are closed while big-box stores, casinos, thugs and looters are open for business. They have singled out the church. Do you see what are you doing to your own church by letting them win?

What does it mean to do the right thing? I mean the right thing not only for your church, but for your children and grandchildren? What is the right thing to do? Stop Joe Biden from becoming president.

How do we stop him? There is simply no option, but to pray, and then, vote for Trump. That is the only way you can stop Biden. Voting for some obscure “pure” third candidate is, in reality, a vote for Biden. There is simply no way around it. Yes, you are helping Joe Biden win by not voting for Donald Trump.

Every Pastor who reads this, needs to face their own hypocrisy. You need to do the right thing. You need to stand in your pulpit and instruct the people to register to vote and to cast their vote for Donald Trump.

Please quit hiding behind the discredited notion that you want to keep politics out of the pulpit. This election left the political arena when Democrats veered left and sold themselves to work wickedness.

Not voting, when you can vote, is also evil. Sitting this out is to side with the evildoers. Again, the right thing to do is to stop Joe Biden and the avalanche of socialism that he will bring with him. The only way to stop him is to vote for Donald Trump. It is the right thing to do. Not doing it, is wrong.

Detrick Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Now that you know what it truly means to “Vote your conscience,” you know what you must do.

YES,IT IS TIME FOR THE EAGLES TO LEAVE THE TURKEY YARD

It is clear that, as the madness spreads and the church just wrings its hands, it is time for the eagles to leave the turkey-yard.  You know who you are, you who are an eagle.  There’s a fire inside you that you can’t put out.  You are ruined for ‘Church-As-Usual-Incorporated.’

For too long you’ve been told to be a good little birdie.  “Don’t ruffle any feathers!” But you just can’t stomach the stale kernels they toss to you.  You must have fresh meat.  All around you, the turkeys peck at the ground.  But all you can see are the clouds and the sky, where you know you belong.

You long to be home, where the glory is.  Your place is alongside the heroes of faith that changed the course of nations.  “Survival-mode” teaching sickens you.  The idea that tepid happiness is the goal enrages you.

You made the mistake of looking at old youtube.com videos.  You saw Oral Roberts.  You saw Kathryn Kuhlman.  You saw Smith Wigglesworth.  You jumped up and screamed, “But, where are the miracles today!?”

(check out my blog, The Price of God’s Miracle Working Power:  https://wp.me/p1vrzp-53e   )

You made the mistake of listening to old preaching tapes, where you heard men and women preaching holy fire!  They didn’t do monologues. They didn’t do stand-up comedy. They pulled the pin out of Bible verses, and flung them like a grenade to explode into the souls of their audience.  You heard people sobbing at the altars.  You heard them linger until something real and lasting transformed them.

Then something really painful happened to you…you looked at your generation. You saw the national cancer of wickedness.  You saw the insane brainwashing.  You saw the limp-wristed tactics of the church.

You became like David as he stared at the paralyzed army of Israel, cowering before a defiant Goliath.

You cried, “WHY DOESN’T SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING?” 

So, now that you realize that the ‘SOMEBODY’ IS YOU, it is too late for you. The die is cast.  You’ve gone too far to turn back.  You now know too much.  You feel like you should leave before you hurt someone…

You remember the verse, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles.” (Isaiah 40:31).

Prayer is your escape from the prison yard of compromise and mediocrity. We’re not talking about the ‘gobble-gobble prayers’ you heard in the yard—we’re talking about falling before God and waiting upon Him until you come forth as pure gold.

What are we talking about?  We are talking about prayer that heaven can’t resist, and hell can’t stand. The kind of prayer that breaks the grip of ancient demonic strongholds.  Prayer that causes students begin to weep on campus, even though they do not know why.  Prayer that fills people with the Holy Spirit. Prayer that removes fear, and installs unshakable courage to tell a generation the genuine Good News: the mighty Gospel—which is the unapologetic, undeniable, unstoppable power of God!

Eagles dare while turkeys stare!

Eagles are born out of prayer. They spring forth from the hand of God, fully convinced of their destiny and their goal.  Let mistaken millennials protest against the AR-15.  You take hold of John 17:15, “My prayer is not that you take them out of the world, but that you protect them from the evil one.”  That is your battle cry!  You don’t want out.  You know the Lord Jesus will keep you from the evil one! You are ready to soar into any nest of evil and destroy the works of the devil.

Where eagles gather, power is present.  Where eagles gather, the deep purposes of Almighty God are revealed.  Where eagles gather, there’s no self-pity, no encounter sessions, and no hiding in your ‘safe-space.’  When turkeys are transformed into eagles, they are equipped, they are ignited, and they are fitted for war.

Eagles must have a challenge.  They yearn for a cause that will summon up all of their strength, talent, and time.  They want something they can easily imagine doing for the rest of their lives.

 

It’s time for you to fly out of the turkey yard, and never look back!

THESE CHRISTIANS ARE GOING TO VOTE FOR BIDEN ANYWAY

We had a pandemic that should have ignited reverence and repentance in Christians. But it didn’t. The big reason is modern preaching. That widespread moral confusion spills over into Christian sentiment about Biden.

Here is my question: How can they call themselves Christians and do such an anti-Christian act as voting for Biden? The answer is simple: modern preaching. Modern preaching has produced the most Biblically illiterate generation of church-goers ever.

Because of modern preaching, Christians don’t know what they believe beyond their false vision of a loving, tolerant and generous God who caters to their every whim. A God to overlook their carnal lifestyle.

Because of modern preaching a moral choice is not as important as ‘feeling loved.’

Because of modern preaching, many who call themselves Christians cannot handle persecution. And this is a critical point. Why? Because the platform that Biden is running on is hatred for Trump. And the hatred of Trump coming from the media and Hollywood makes it uncomfortable for an ambivalent believer to take a stand. They want to be accepted…the same motivation that drives their celebrity pastor. Acceptance!

Certain Christians want him because he is not Trump. But this is not a conviction but a concession like the concessions Christians have made in other areas of morality. Again because of modern preaching.

It is true that Biden is not Trump thank God, but believers need to be clear about what their vote for Biden will do to the world and what it says about them. I beg you to open your heart and mind to facts.

Again, these are facts not opinions:

There’s undeniable evidence of cognitive decline in Joe Biden. He often looks confused, the man can’t finish a sentence. He has the rude angry outbursts that accompany this form of decline.  He continued to give unwanted attention to females long after being warned. It’s almost as if he forgot to stop.

Back to the issue of cognitive decline. Below are his actual words as he addressed the coronavirus. Teleprompter and all.

He has embraced the full compliment of socialist evil embedded in the Democrat platform. He wants Beto O’Rourke to take away our guns. He wants to reinstate laws that oppress Christian bakers and businesses. Not opinion. Things he has just said. He is so desperate to become President that he has vowed to veer left and rally those who support the agendas of Planned Parenthood, the LGBTQ activists, and socialism. He has even made a deal with the other devil, Bernie Sanders.

China lied about Covid 19. That was a devastating attack on the United States. Joe Biden has made a career of giving in to the Chinese government. He even sided with them after the pandemic started accusing Trump of racism for stopping flights from China. Attacks from China are only beginning. That of itself makes Biden a disaster and the absolute worst choice.

Joe Biden is the consort of Barack Obama, who has consistently been the most hostile President in history toward the Bible. How can you call yourself a Christian and vote for Joe Biden? He is too weak to resist Obama’s war on the church. He will serve at the behest of the worst enemies of both the church and the nation. He will go after every value Christianity stands for.

It is clear what Joe Biden will do—his every move will be anti-Christian—so how can you believe you are innocent and not do everything in your power to stop him?  The only way to stop Biden is to vote for Trump. No one else, no matter how saintly you esteem them to be, has any chance of winning. And if Trump loses, America will belong to the enemies of God.

This pandemic has shut down the American economy. How can you call yourself a Christian and vote to elect a cure that is worse than the disease? Should the economy be in the hands of Biden?

Many liberal governors will do all they can to keep churches shut down long after the virus has subsided. How can you call yourself a Christian and allow an enemy of the church and an ally to these governors to put the finishing touches on an already dangerous situation?

Come on—ask yourself, do you seriously believe Biden will be able to rebuild America after all the damage this pandemic has done?  Trump alone possesses the skill and the will to bring us back from disaster. China fears Donald Trump but their mouth waters at the thought of a Biden presidency and a Democrat-run Congress.

 

This corona virus is the warning shot across the bow to a nation that has filled up the cup of iniquity with the wrath of God. So far, many in the church are still drowsy, indifferent and ignorant of the two most important facts that exist in this hour.

1. America must repent or be diminished. We have shoved God away. It grieves God that lost souls go after depravity, but it also grieves God that so-called Christians still don’t get the urgency of this hour and the utter necessity of radical repentance.

2. We must appreciate that Donald Trump is an act of mercy. He is a rough and tumble deliverer. Certainly, many have wished for a smoother, less combative President. The fact is that America, in her sin, has made it necessary for God to use strong medicine. We must appreciate that Trump was sent by God or suffer unspeakable consequences.

“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Ps. 11:3)

The foundations are being destroyed, and it is clear who the destroyers are…so how can you call yourself a Christian and vote for Biden?

P.S. A Special message to those who support Mario Murillo’s message to America

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

CHRISTIAN APATHY USED TO BE HARMLESS NOT ANYMORE. TODAY, IT IS A TOTAL DISASTER

The Democrat Party has made America miserable. They have done it with a misery unknown and unequalled in our history. They have caused great misery, both to our institutions and to our people.  They have made everyday life miserable. They have made all the races miserable. They have made professional sports miserable. They have made education miserable. They have made relationships miserable. They have made the elderly, the middle aged, the young, and even children miserable.

Once anything of beauty is touched by the “woke” and the progressive, it is instantly drained of color. Words like honesty, decency, love and virtue have been beaten to a pulp by people who are always offended and who literally see everything as racist.

They have destroyed Minneapolis, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, New York City —and Gavin Newsom is doing one better by working to destroy an entire state. Antifa is the armed militia of the Democrat Party.

Every solution they have forced on us is worse than the problem it was meant to solve. Every word out of their mouth is a euphemism that masks a dark agenda and the next debacle they are planning.

They have even found a way to out-kill the virus. Their shutdown has created an epidemic of suicide, drug addiction and depression. Their war on the police has unleashed a crime wave that is turning urban areas into murder capitols and uninhabitable torture chambers.

Democrats are masters of evading responsibility. They could crawl through a barrel of pretzels and not touch a single one. They blame Trump for the deplorable conditions that exist in cities they utterly control and have always controlled.

The Democrat Party has left us with no choice but to absolutely repudiate them. There is no doubt about this. This is an inescapable fact to all moral and sensible people, but, somehow, Christians are in denial of all these obvious facts.

Many Christians struggle to admit evil. Not only that, they can’t see their natural duty to stop America’s destruction. If what the Left is now doing does not shake you out of complacency, I doubt anything will.

Perhaps you don’t want to get involved. Perhaps you are using tired religious excuses, such as hiding behind a false interpretation of Romans 13. Maybe you are convinced that this maelstrom of evil will simply go away on its own if you pretend it doesn’t exist and just sing louder.

You are a pastor who is torn about taking a stand in this war because you may lose your church. But if you don’t act, there won’t be any church left for you to save. There is no viable excuse for staying out of this battle. There is nothing heroic about avoiding your sacred duty in this time of national destruction.

In Psalm 11:3 there is a verse that some translations render, “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Which makes it sound like: ‘The foundations have been destroyed, so the righteous might as well give up, there is nothing they can do.’ But the Hebrew, according to several commentaries, says something different: “If the foundations be destroyed, what will become of the building/structure?”

In this current crisis, the foundations that are being destroyed are the American system of government, law and order, Capitalism, and the Constitutional protection of the freedom of religion. The Psalmist is saying to us in our day, “When those foundations are gone, what will be the end of the entire structure?”

The structure is America. Surely this nation is worth fighting for. Many have bled and died for our freedoms. There may have been a day when American Christians could comfortably live in apathy—an apathy that seemed harmless—but not anymore. Today, it is a formula for guaranteed disaster.

WANTED: MISFITS, REBELS, AND TRUE WARRIORS

Wanted: Misfits, rebels and true warriors. I am looking for those who aren’t waiting for permission to save a nation from destruction.

Today, I write about violence. Today, I write to the violent. There is no point in talking to those who are afraid of their own shadow, or those who can’t wait for a return to the same old harmless lukewarm religion as before, when America reopens. This blog is not for those who practice ‘cuddly-Christianity.’

Matthew 11:12, “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.”

The Left says, “Be a good little Christian, we got this.”  They warn pastors, “Just because the pandemic is winding down, that doesn’t mean we won’t stop telling you when you can meet and what you can preach.  They say, “Get used to less privacy, less rights, and less money.” They used that cursed phrase, “new normal.”

So are you going to bend or stand? If you answer, “Stand,” then read on.

I am on the hunt for misfits! I am looking for those rare hearts who defy the lie. Those who confess with conviction that every dream—every vision—every strategy that God gave us is unchanged by the virus.

What are you doing during this shutdown, warrior? My guess is, instead of downgrading your dream, you downloaded defiance.  You didn’t relax, you reloaded. You aren’t whimpering and whining, but forging and shining.  You aren’t mooing with the cattle, you are yearning for battle.

Remember: Even before all of this happened, you withdrew from the religious rec-hall, so that you could go after God. Never forget how sick and empty you felt during those church performances of flesh, flash, and foolishness.

2 timothy 4:4-5, “And they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”

Then there was that day when you read these words: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father” (John 14:12).

The hunger to see signs and wonders body-slammed you. You wanted the real. You wanted the true miracles of Jesus and not those sad, commercialized parlor tricks that were so popular before the shutdown. In fact, the virus didn’t shake our faith in miracles—it intensified our passion to see more! More power! More fire! More miracles!

Pacing like a lion in my prayer room, I announced to the powers of hell that I won’t back down. I know what the devil is doing. He is fanning hatred toward the Gospel. He is using the virus as a pretext for persecution. So, what does that mean? It means something to the warrior that it can’t mean to the make-believer. It means we won’t back down. We won’t stop. We won’t dilute our message or lower our voice.

2 Corinthians 4:2, “But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.”

It also means the soldier of revival is facing a two-headed monster. One head is leftist state officials. Man of God, they want to shut you up. Woman of God, they want to dash your hopes and dreams.

The other head is the Laodicean church of America. The tepid, compromised, confused and cowardly hordes that refuse to buck the system—even if the system is after our freedoms and values. They won’t help. They won’t stand. You are grasping at straws when you try to get them to take a stand.

No, my friend, you must be prepared for a gallant fight. And on your side, are only you, and God. But that is always a majority! 

Are you going to back down now? Are you going to allow God-hating devils to decide the size of your future? Did the devil close doors for you?  God will rip them open again with His own bare hands. This virus and the fearful policies that are growing out of it did not, and cannot, kill the promises of God.

But you have to stand! Even against the gates of Hell! Forget about what others are going to do when this is over. You, prepare for total war.

Are you that pastor who woke up to your compromise and failure during the shutdown?  Are you in agony, trying to figure out how to tell the people that you are now pursuing fire, revival, and miracles? Are you obsessing over how many will leave the church? Stand!

Yes, they will leave. But for every one of these detractors who leave, ten true disciples will rise up. Your obedience will bring in lost souls. Your preaching will be crowned with divine healing miracles.

Do you own a business?  Stand against the tide of fake news about the economy.  God will protect your company. You may be in politics. Forget about votes!  Declare truth no matter who it offends, and then watch as God grants unusual favor.

You and I have no time to waste on the timid cold souls in the bleachers. We have work to do—God’s work! So what if it looks impossible. So what if there seems to be a million of them and just two of us. Today is your victory cry. The moment is yours to command!

The greatest thrill of life and the greatest honor is following God into dark and impossible situations. Don’t let go of this, you may never have another opportunity to prove the might of Jehovah Sabaoth, the Lord of the Armies of Heaven!

1 Samuel 14: 6, “Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few.””

Finally, don’t you dare act like this is too hard for you. Don’t flinch, wondering why this has happened to you. This is what your Christianity is for. This is what your faith is for.

Don’t you dare feel inadequate or shocked! Believe it or not, you have been training for this all of your life. Long before this virus, God separated you for special training. Long before this shutdown, the Lord shaped the circumstances of your life, to give you the heart and the skills for saving a nation.

“Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil; for we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” (Ephesians 6:11-13)

The gates of hell cannot prevail against that which heaven has put in you! Stand!
