WHAT ON EARTH JUST HAPPENED IN CALIFORNIA?

In less than six days we have had 700 Pastors sign up for a sold-out luncheon in California!

All glory to God!

What is the draw? That is the miracle! We are giving a straightforward message about reopening the churches, about releasing the fire of God on the people, and about pushing back the leftist agenda of politicians.

There will be no bells or whistles, no big screens, skinny jeans, and fog machines. No flattery or flowery speeches. There will be no pep talks about church growth.

And who are these pastors? I think I can speak for them. Most are from California and they are hungry for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. They are ready to pull down demonic strongholds. They are the faithful core who have borne the heat of the lockdown over the past 10 months. Some are from other parts of America. They are coming to sow into California, so that they may reap in their own churches.

They seek reformation not information. They have abandoned the carnal syllabus-driven-megachurch-building machinery. They seek God’s weapon-forging refinery. They want the anointing to evict devils. They are determined to reopen the wells of Azusa Street and the Jesus Movement that lie deep in California’s spiritual soil.

But they expect something bigger than those past movements, because this present darkness is bigger. They expect greater miracles, because the doubt and despair are greater.

But the greatest threat Satan faces with these pastors, is the souls they are going to win! These men and women believe that the harvest is great and the workers are few. They know as I know—the people of California are wide open to the Gospel. And they know why they are so open.

Gavin Newsom, and the other demagogues of California’s rogue government, have heaped untold misery on the masses. This misery has backfired dramatically. It has provoked a generation that is in agony into the arms of God, and has kindled a renewed love for America.

What does this all mean? It means that our long wait is finally coming to an end.  It means you will see a vast number of churches reopen. The word of God will be declared over California, and a new generation of Christians are about be born in the Golden State.

This is only one luncheon. But this luncheon will—without a doubt—be the catalyst for greater victories.

A massive tent Crusade is next. Truly the Modesto, Manteca, Stockton area will be invaded, because the largest army we have ever assembled will be on the streets. It means that once again the tent will radiate with the power and presence of God. But it also means something else.

Wouldn’t it be just like God to deliver the greatest shock to America? Just as the Left has spiked the ball. Just as leftist progressives are celebrating the complete takeover of Washington D.C. Just as the rabble are shouting with glee, something shocking happens and the power of God falls upon America.

Get ready, America, Jesus is about to invade!

 “Therefore, you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect” (Matthew 24:44).

California, that deepest blue of blue states. That reliably leftist bastion. That land of unfettered hatred to all things Christian and American, could be about to become a conduit of Christianity and flip red in the next election.

Wouldn’t that be just like God to do a thing like that?

WHAT IF THE AMERICAN CHURCH DOES NOT REPENT?

AND WHAT IF THE AMERICAN CHURCH DOES NOT REPENT?

What do you call it, when States want 8-year-olds to have the option to postpone puberty by providing them with pills? When the cities with the most murder, want the least police? When a protester argues in court that he has a First Amendment right to throw a fire bomb? When every major university is a ‘hate America’ factory. When every last one of the major news outlets black out opposing views? When the Democrat candidate for President wants radical abortion, radical socialism, and is an empty vessel whose campaign consists of saying that we should vote for him, because he is not Trump…

What do you call it when the American Church is largely unfazed by these alarming facts?  When high profile pastors are on the wrong side of these issues. What’s worse, they can’t even take a stand, either to leave their church doors open or to sing worship songs.

Sorry, but the virtual church will never match a live and in-person church service. The most powerful videos are always the ones taken from a live service with fiery preaching and documented signs and wonders.

I know that I will get blasted for what I am about to say, but I can’t hold back the fire in my bones. Listen to how Andy Stanley justified his decision to keep his church closed until January 1, 2021:

“One of the things that I love about our churches is that we attract all kinds of people with all kinds of opinions and persuasions,” he said. “So, for some of you, this makes perfect sense and you may even be relieved. For others of you, this seems like an unnecessary precaution, perhaps a lack of faith on my part. You might even interpret this decision through a political filter. And honestly, I get all of that.”

Well, no, he doesn’t get it at all.

I am certain that his announcement plays well to the ‘woke’ crowd, but it is not consistent with the facts. First of all, people are dying because the churches are closed. And a wrecked economy is killing more people than the virus, by far. Lives depend on economic activity. When you stop that, you kill people. Suicide has reached record levels. So has addiction, despair and rage. Closed churches allow the devil free rein. The mental health epidemic of loneliness is the greatest in our history. The welcoming open door of a church is more of an essential lifeline now, than ever.

I am all for taking every precaution to prevent infections, but I will never agree to Democrat governors and mayors demanding that churches remain closed, while allowing thousands to mingle in public protest. Furthermore, there is no such thing as a public gathering that is 100% risk-free, and there never will be. 

What if the conditions next year are the same as now? Will Stanley’s church remain closed permanently? The leftist media will do everything they can to give us that impression. Unless of course Biden wins, in which case, I guess the virus will just suddenly vanish.

Furthermore, many of the so-called ‘spikes’ are the result of dubious tests. At some test sites in Florida, 100% of those tested came back positive for the virus. Give me a break! Real Christians can recognize demonic deception. Real believers understand when a lie is killing their freedom.

And isn’t it odd how the same churches that don’t mind being closed, are the same ones that won’t endorse Trump or oppose the impending disaster of a Joe Biden presidency?

Not only is the lifesaving repentance ignored—it is dismissed and even ridiculed by some of these leaders. By postponing the national repentance that is so desperately needed, they are helping sign America’s death warrant.

So, what will happen if the American Church continues to refuse to repent? That is a horror I do not even want to describe to you.

Isaiah wrote about a similar crisis that parallels what is happening in our streets: “Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways…” (Isaiah 59:7-8)

The current looting, fires and destruction are not the product of a civil rights movement. There is zero justice coming out of their rampage.

The Bible then describes how bad things became because of the God-haters: “Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. So, truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey” (Isaiah 59:14-15a).

Beloved, this is what we are seeing today! Antifa, social-media-cancel-culture, and the oppression of believers who dare to speak out are clearly shown in these verses. The righteous even make themselves a prey in the ‘modern’ church!

So how did God react? Isaiah 59:15b-16a tells us, “…Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor.”

The Lord was stunned that no one rose up to speak truth! God is as shocked today as He was then. Shocked that the very leaders He raised up to call America back to Himself, refuse to do it!

But, Mario, is there hope? The greatest hope is that you will see what God is about to do! “Therefore, His own arm brought salvation for Him; and His own righteousness sustained Him. For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation upon His head; He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak. According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay, fury to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; the coastlands He will fully repay. So, shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him” (Isaiah 59:16b-19).

God is not waiting for the ‘woke’ pastors to wake up! He has decided that when it comes to America, He will take matters into His own hands—He is looking at you, you who are His body on earth. He is rising up within a remnant. Special power, special words, special miracles and special courage. We need to become the prayer of repentance, the voice of repentance, and the force of God against the flood of evil before it is too late!

DEMOCRATS HAVE NO INTENTION OF EVER REOPENING CHURCHES

 

If you believe the day is coming when Democrats will officially allow churches to reopen, you are fooling yourself.  That day is never going to come.  If your church is in a city or state governed by Democrats, they will never, ever declare that is okay for churches to reopen.

The only way churches will reopen is if they do it on their own.  At this moment Democrats are looking for a way to keep churches closed that goes beyond The China Virus. 

If you are counting on the day when your Democrat mayor or governor will tell you that you are free to have open church services wake up! That day is never coming. 

The lock down had little or nothing to do with the China Virus, it just provided the excuse they have been wanting for a long time. They wanted to see what pastors would do if they were ordered to shut down. They sure found out!  Their illegal order worked beyond their fondest dreams. Christian leader after Christian leader rolled over like a puppy who hears a newspaper being rolled up, with extraordinarily little resistance.

 

This was also a way to bankrupt churches—churches that were too weak to survive months of being closed. And they were right again, because many of these churches did not survive. They are gone forever.

The only way that churches will ever reopen is for them to take matters into their own hands and test the criminal behavior of Democrat leaders. Though they were extremely clear about when we needed to close, they will be vague at best and totally silent at worst.

Here are three reasons why the Democrats will never reopen the churches.

1. The closure had more to do with our Christianity than with the virus. The proof is their long history of trying to shut down the church. After the virus, they will try something else.

The most glaring example of their past efforts to persecute Christianity was California Assembly Bill 2943.  This is no exaggeration.  It is not the overreaction of an overly emotional preacher.  I challenge you to come up with a different conclusion than I have concerning this proposed law that would have passed had it not been stopped at the last minute:

This bill would have declared all forms of sexual orientation change efforts, or SOCE (sometimes referred to as “conversion therapy”) to be a form of “consumer fraud” if performed for a fee. Such counseling or therapy is designed to assist people who experience unwanted same-sex attractions to achieve their own self-chosen goal of overcoming those attractions or abstaining from same-sex conduct.

In fact, because the “consumer fraud” statute applies to any sale of “goods or services,” AB 2943 could potentially have banned not just therapy but even the sale of books. And because “sexual orientation change” was defined to include changes in “behaviors” (not just attractions), the sale of any book promoting a Christian sexual ethic could have been banned—potentially including the Bible itself.

https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/ab-2943-therapy-ban-that-attacked-freedom-of-speech-and-religion-dies-in-california-family-research-council-says-300705551.html

No exchange of money can be allowed for a book that suggests recovery from same sex attraction or gender dysphoria?  No conference can do so either?  Oh wait, the Bible does that.  And oh, yeah, a Bible Conference will do that.

This frontal assault on the Christian faith is a giant step toward outlawing Gospel preaching as hate speech.  What will stop them from removing tax exemptions?  What will stop them from removing the right to assemble?  What will stop them from shutting down any group that does not fall in line with their gender values?

2. They are ignoring the decisions of federal judges who have ordered them to reopen churches. Does that tell you anything? The Justice Department has opened investigations threatening Mayors and Governors. Has that had any impact? Of course not. The Democrats know what they are doing is illegal. If they are already flouting the law to force churches to stay closed, what makes you think they will ever give in and announce our reopening?

  1. They are only buying time to come up with the next reason to ban churches. This was a dress rehearsal. Think about how nutty Nancy Pelosi is to suggest a second impeachment of Trump because he nominated Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court? What makes you think they will not invent some absurd reason to close churches again?

Here is the conclusion of this matter. The real enemy is fear. I call it Covid-20. It is the virus that makes people afraid to go back to their church. It is the fear that makes a pastor reluctant to open en masse to force Democrat governors to face the futility of keeping us closed.

If the church in America is ever to reopen, she must do it on her own.

If ever we needed to heed to the example given by Peter in Acts 5:28-29. When the Apostles were ordered by the governing officials in Jerusalem to shut down: “saying, “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this Name? And look, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man’s blood on us!” But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.” 

After being warned, the Church in the 1st century did the exact opposite. They rose up and became even more bold to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, accompanied by signs and wonders. And that is what the Church in the 21st century must do, during this hour of persecution!

2. They are ignoring the decisions of federal judges who have ordered them to reopen churches. Does that tell you anything? The Justice Department has opened investigations threatening Mayors and Governors. Has that had any impact? Of course not. The Democrats know what they are doing is illegal. If they are already flouting the law to force churches to stay closed, what makes you think they will ever give in and announce our reopening?

  1. They are only buying time to come up with the next reason to ban churches. This was a dress rehearsal. Think about how nutty Nancy Pelosi is to suggest a second impeachment of Trump because he nominated Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court? What makes you think they will not invent some absurd reason to close churches again?

Here is the conclusion of this matter. The real enemy is fear. I call it Covid-20. It is the virus that makes people afraid to go back to their church. It is the fear that makes a pastor reluctant to open en masse to force Democrat governors to face the futility of keeping us closed.

If the church in America is ever to reopen, she must do it on her own.

If ever we needed to heed to the example given by Peter in Acts 5:28-29. When the Apostles were ordered by the governing officials in Jerusalem to shut down: “saying, “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this Name? And look, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man’s blood on us!” But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.” 

After being warned, the Church in the 1st century did the exact opposite. They rose up and became even more bold to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, accompanied by signs and wonders. And that is what the Church in the 21st century must do, during this hour of persecution!

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TRUMP MUST DO AT THIS MOMENT

Alert! Facebook is banning this blog. We need your help to get this message out. Apparently, they see it as a threat to Biden’s election.

What a week! China is poised to hit us again. The shutdown continues to destroy lives, businesses, and churches. Revelations about the FBI are devastating. On the streets of Portland, Oregon, left-wing rioters keep burning down the most left-wing city in America. Meanwhile, the nation suffers through a most excruciating, stomach-churning pack of lies and propaganda: The Democratic Convention.

These are only the highlights of what President Donald Trump faces. On top of all of that, he must lead a reelection campaign in a system so rigged against him it boggles the mind.

Antifa and Black Lives Matter were caused by the Democrat Party, and they are in full rebellion against everything American. The Bible says clearly that “rebellion is like the sin of witchcraft” (1 Samuel 15:23), and we are seeing the full-blown rebellion, demonic hatred, violence and anarchy that they have summoned from hell.

Deciding what is the most important thing the President must do at this moment is really hard—but I believe I know what it is. Not only that, but I am also persuaded what the second thing is that he must do, if the first one fails.

Donald Trump and every decent American must do everything in their power right now to prevent a mail-in election. People must go to the polls and vote in person. Absentee ballots are one thing, but a massive vote-by-mail election guarantees tampering and corruption—a corruption Democrats are counting on. It will be impossible for Trump to get a fair count.

Leftist operatives man battle stations throughout the system that will count the votes. I will go so far as to say that mail-in ballots are Joe Biden’s only hope of winning. But the horror extends beyond that. All the votes for the Senate and the House and local elections will also be gamed by this racket.  I have no doubt that the fix is already in, and the only way to stop it is to demand that the courts enforce in-person voting.

The virus is just an excuse for this despicable deception. The church shutdown proves it. If they truly believe that the virus is as dangerous as they say it is, they would not have singled out the church for shutdown and have left big-box stores, bars, casinos, and marijuana outlets open. They used a big fat lie to close down our churches. Why? Because they hate the church.

Now, we see the same lie being used to unleash the most heinous sabotage of our freedoms in American history. The argument that people shouldn’t go to polling places is destroyed by their actions. It’s the ultimate hypocrisy of the Left: leftist protesters—in person on the streets—protesting against in-person voting. How rich is that? 

Think voter fraud is not being planned on a massive scale consider 20,000 fake driver’s licenses…


Mr. President you must combine all of your influence and all of your moral rage to focus on stopping this disaster. Shut it down before it happens with an executive order, and call out the National Guard to oversee the voting process. Everyone who loves America and loves freedom must treat the mail-in election as treason, and consider it as lethal as an armed invasion by a foreign army.

We must fight it in the courts. We must exhaust every avenue to influence rational Americans against this travesty. And if that fails…

But what if ‘that’ does fail and we have a corrupted election? Then we must—all of us—on a scale unknown in world history—repudiate the results and reject the election. Patriotic and God-fearing people—by the millions, must take to the streets if necessary and revolt against the calculated, despotic, banana-republic sham of a mail-in election. Otherwise, America will be lost forever.

Mr. President, do all that is in your heart to do, we are with you in this holy crusade.

AND WHAT IF THE AMERICAN CHURCH DOES NOT REPENT?

AND WHAT IF THE AMERICAN CHURCH DOES NOT REPENT?

What do you call it, when States want 8-year-olds to have the option to postpone puberty by providing them with pills? When the cities with the most murder, want the least police? When a protester argues in court that he has a First Amendment right to throw a fire bomb? When every major university is a ‘hate America’ factory. When every last one of the major news outlets black out opposing views? When the Democrat candidate for President wants radical abortion, radical socialism, and is an empty vessel whose campaign consists of saying that we should vote for him, because he is not Trump…

What do you call it when the American Church is largely unfazed by these alarming facts? When its leaders can’t even call for national prayer and repentance? When high profile pastors are on the wrong side of these issues. What’s worse, they can’t even take a stand, either to leave their church doors open or to sing worship songs.

 

Sorry, but the virtual church will never match a live and in-person church service. The most powerful videos are always the ones taken from a live service with fiery preaching and documented signs and wonders.

I know that I will get blasted for what I am about to say, but I can’t hold back the fire in my bones. Listen to how Andy Stanley justified his decision to keep his church closed until January 1, 2021:

“One of the things that I love about our churches is that we attract all kinds of people with all kinds of opinions and persuasions,” he said. “So, for some of you, this makes perfect sense and you may even be relieved. For others of you, this seems like an unnecessary precaution, perhaps a lack of faith on my part. You might even interpret this decision through a political filter. And honestly, I get all of that.”

Well, no, he doesn’t get it at all.

I am certain that his announcement plays well to the ‘woke’ crowd, but it is not consistent with the facts. First of all, people are dying because the churches are closed. And a wrecked economy is killing more people than the virus, by far. Lives depend on economic activity. When you stop that, you kill people. Suicide has reached record levels. So has addiction, despair and rage. Closed churches allow the devil free rein. The mental health epidemic of loneliness is the greatest in our history. The welcoming open door of a church is more of an essential lifeline now, than ever.

I am all for taking every precaution to prevent infections, but I will never agree to Democrat governors and mayors demanding that churches remain closed, while allowing thousands to mingle in public protest. Furthermore, there is no such thing as a public gathering that is 100% risk-free, and there never will be. 

What if the conditions next year are the same as now? Will Stanley’s church remain closed permanently? The leftist media will do everything they can to give us that impression. Unless of course Biden wins, in which case, I guess the virus will just suddenly vanish.

Furthermore, many of the so-called ‘spikes’ are the result of dubious tests. At some test sites in Florida, 100% of those tested came back positive for the virus. Give me a break! Real Christians can recognize demonic deception. Real believers understand when a lie is killing their freedom.

The half cures, the compromises and head-scratching conclusions reached by Pastor Stanley remind me of someone else: Beto O’Rourke.

I was once advised never to attack someone who has not first attacked me, but the sentiment of Stanley and other ‘woke’ pastors is a direct attack on you and me. By preaching around the issues and avoiding the repentance that God requires, they leave the sheep unprotected. By denying the real danger that is greater than the danger from the virus, they attempt to dilute the urgency of the Holy Spirit.

And isn’t it odd how the same churches that don’t mind being closed, are the same ones that won’t endorse Trump or oppose the impending disaster of a Joe Biden presidency?

Not only is the lifesaving repentance ignored—it is dismissed and even ridiculed by some of these leaders. By postponing the national repentance that is so desperately needed, they are helping sign America’s death warrant.

So, what will happen if the American Church continues to refuse to repent? That is a horror I do not even want to describe to you.

Isaiah wrote about a similar crisis that parallels what is happening in our streets: “Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways…” (Isaiah 59:7-8)

The current looting, fires and destruction are not the product of a civil rights movement. There is zero justice coming out of their rampage.

The Bible then describes how bad things became because of the God-haters: “Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. So, truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey” (Isaiah 59:14-15a).

Beloved, this is what we are seeing today! Antifa, social-media-cancel-culture, and the oppression of believers who dare to speak out are clearly shown in these verses. The righteous even make themselves a prey in the ‘modern’ church!

So how did God react? Isaiah 59:15b-16a tells us, “…Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor.”

The Lord was stunned that no one rose up to speak truth! God is as shocked today as He was then. Shocked that the very leaders He raised up to call America back to Himself, refuse to do it!

But, Mario, is there hope? The greatest hope is that you will see what God is about to do! “Therefore, His own arm brought salvation for Him; and His own righteousness sustained Him. For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation upon His head; He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak. According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay, fury to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; the coastlands He will fully repay. So, shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him” (Isaiah 59:16b-19).

God is not waiting for the ‘woke’ pastors to wake up! He has decided that when it comes to America, He will take matters into His own hands—He is looking at you, you who are His body on earth. He is rising up within a remnant. Special power, special words, special miracles and special courage. We need to become the prayer of repentance, the voice of repentance, and the force of God against the flood of evil before it is too late!

 

 

 

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

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