TODAY IS NOT A REFERENDUM ON TRUMP

Don’t believe a single word from those who are calling today’s election a referendum of President Trump.  Today is not a verdict on Donald Trump.  This is not about the left seizing the perceived hatred of Trump.  This is something else altogether.
Some Republicans in the House did not jump on the Trump train soon enough to benefit from his wins.  Let’s not forget how, early on, the leadership of the Republican Party fought Trump.  They even maneuvered to prevent him from running for President.  He had to overcome obstacles on both sides of the aisle.
If the Republican Party had seized two issues, they would be seeing a Red Wave today instead biting their nails.  Immigration and the economy are the two things an overwhelming number of Americans care about.  They want jobs and they don’t want their neighborhoods invaded.  Establishment Republicans were to slow to understand that.  They still feared the media.
Even during this election cycle, many House Republicans were slow to understand the groundswell of grassroots support for Trump.  Look at candidates whose hide is being saved because, just in time, they wisely identified with Trump.

Moreover, House elections are local not national.  What the left is grabbing hold of is the frustration of a do-nothing congress.  Candidates are vulnerable because of their local, lackadaisical leadership—their clinging to establishment ways—and for doing nothing while they had the chance.  None of which is Trump’s fault.
That is not to say the Left’s answer is any good. Their cure is far worse than the disease.
The Left has good reason to try to pin their nonexistent blue wave on Trump.  They want to weaken him.  However, the weakness came from Paul Ryan’s brand of “sort of say something, and sort of do something.”  Republican tabling, delaying, snide remarks against Trump tweets, and trying to appear to be getting things done, is coming home to haunt them.
Look at today this way: Your football team was down 28-0 at the two-minute warning and you finally put the right quarterback in.  He is miraculously driving up and down the field and may have enough time to pull out a win.  Trump has frantically rallied in so many places in the last few weeks that it makes me dizzy.  If God can use anyone to pull out a miracle it is Donald Trump.
But if the gun sounds before he can save the house…don’t blame him, it is totally not his fault.  If he does pull out a win the Republican Party better give credit where credit is due.

75% of pastors have not taken a stand

 

75% of pastors have not taken a stand in their pulpits on the midterm elections. Think of that.  With the highest stakes ever—and the Christian vote essential for victory—they have not talked about this election.

Do you doubt it?  Go by your own experience.  You will not only know it’s true, but it may be more than 75%.  Did you hear anything last Sunday?  Are you being instructed on the issues and who to vote for?  Are you hearing excuses instead of conviction?

If the polls are right, it will take a miracle for Republicans to keep the House of Representatives.  It should never have come to this.  The Christian bloc should have won easily.  Tens of millions of Christians had the power to vote the left out of office.  So far, they haven’t.

If Nancy Pelosi returns as they predict she will, the Democrats will instantly seize the Russia investigation.  They will move to impeach Trump and will even go after Kavanaugh.  Expect a torrent of subpoenas and gridlock. Expect a recession.  She’ll be back because pulpits are afraid.

I am an advocate for pastors.  They have an impossible task today.  There are many great men and women of God in America.  That is what makes this virtual blackout on the midterms so bewildering.

Think of it.  If a pastor is anything…they are a watchman.   Do they understand how the sheep will suffer in a world of anti-God laws, hateful leaders, a trashed economy, and nation that will be far more divided that it is now?  No matter how high-sounding their words—if they failed to protect the sheep from the one thing that will cause them suffering—they failed their most basic duty.

One of them said, “I will not allow divisive politics into the Kingdom of God.”  My, doesn’t that sound right.  However, it’s the pastors who refuse to speak up are the ones bringing “divisive politics” into the Kingdom of God.  We who speak out are bringing the Kingdom of God to evil.  Let me explain.

One of these silent pastors came up to me and said, “Mario, you are too political.” I thought “I’m the one who’s political?” I asked them “why aren’t you warning the church to vote against the evil of the left against the church?”  His answer was “it would divide my church and effect my finances.”  So, I said, “you mean it would cost you votes, and campaign funds?  You’re the politician not me.”

This evil began as politics but has darkened into something that hates America and what we stand for.  What we are trying to stop is not politics—it transcends politics.  It is a Satanic agenda we are attacking.  Ever since Obama, it stopped being politics and it became spiritual warfare.

The decision to seek self-preservation above the good of the people and the nation is the kind of politics that would make a leftist senator proud.

But there is another villain in this situation and I am calling you out.  If you threatened your pastor—by removing your money or your influence—if they were taking a stand for the Republicans in this election,  

I don’t care how right to be a Never Trumper or a pro Democrat Christian you think you are.  Boycotting your church and intimidating your pastor is wrong—you should be ashamed.

If you don’t know what is at stake—if you don’t feel it is a natural extension of your faith in Christ to oppose abortion, legislation of immorality, and censorship of the church—if you attend church regularly and didn’t know how  much we stand to lose by sitting this one out…blame your pulpit.

BUT NO MATTER WHAT VOTE!!  Vote against the destruction of our freedom and our values.  Even though it appears likely Nancy Pelosi will the Speaker and Maxine Waters will be on the finance committee—vote!  Vote! Even though the experts are saying it is too late for Trump’s last-minute campaigning for beleaguered Republican candidates.  There is still time for a miracle.

 

You don’t hand matches to an arsonist

The victory of Brett Kavanaugh faded quickly in my spirit.  It was something President Trump asked the crowd in Kansas.  “If they act this way trying to get power what do you think they will be like if they get the power?”

Then he said, “you don’t hand matches to an arsonist.”

Diane Feinstein will slander an innocent man—hold back that slander till it has the most sadistic impact on a godly family—just to win an election.  If she does that now, what would she do with a Senate majority?

The left believes men should be guilty until proven guilty.  They want carte blanche to investigate until the lies suffocate the truth. 

And what if Kavanaugh had quit?  What if that towering miscarriage of justice had carried the day? The war on men would have reached critical mass.

As it stands, all we have won is a battle.  The war goes on.  We will still see this ideology canonized in the courts if the left gains control.

Oh, they won’t go after every man…just your man.  They won’t investigate Bill Clinton for rape or Keith Ellison for beating a woman senseless.  They only want to stop men who oppose their agenda.  What do you think they’d do to your Christian, conservative son, brother, husband, father, if they get in the way?

What about the street thugs of the left?  With a Democratic majority they will be emboldened to expand and deepen their disruption and violence.  The streets can become their reign of terror, destroying property and reputations.  They will operate with impunity shielded by a Congress sympathetic to their cause.

Whatever restraint Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and all the social media platforms are showing now will go away.  Instead of shadow banning there will just be banning.

Hollywood, and all the media voices of the left would churn out complete propaganda, drowning out all opposing views.  Look at this tweet:

The writer of this vile tweet is a writer on the Stephen Colbert show, and has nearly 40,000 followers on Twitter. As the Senate confirmation vote was gearing up, she wanted everyone to know that “whatever happens” she is “just” glad she ruined a man’s life. Never mind if he was innocent, never mind any of the facts or corroborations or shifting stories of his accuser. The important thing to her was ruining his life. That was what mattered.

We have entered a moment unlike any in history.  They only time it reminds me of is in Luke 4: 13 “When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time.”

The left is a bloodied beast regrouping.  Their vile behavior against Kavanaugh was just a dress rehearsal. Starting today, they will unleash deceit, intimidation and yes, violence.  Dark money will fuel their dirty commercials.  A tsunami of leftist sewage is about to crash into the nation.

Mario, I don’t believe you, this can’t happen.  Yeah and did you ever think something like these depraved confirmation hearings could happen?

The stakes for November are beyond calculation.  I have never seen, nor will I ever see a closer tie between my faith and my vote.  They have become virtually inseparable.  One is now an extension of the other.  Every believer must storm heaven in prayer!  Every believer must go and vote.  If your pastor is not rallying you to pray and vote why are you still listening to them?

You don’t hand matches to an arsonist.  However, if you think you are spiritual by not voting you need to realize this:  while you aren’t handing an arsonist matches, you are leaving them out on the table.

Trump will win by a landslide in 2020. Liberals are the ones saying this, and that explains everything. 

The bombshell admission came last week on MSNBC.  New York uber-liberal Donny Deutsch said, “Trump will be re-elected in 2020 by a landslide.”  That—while amazing—is not the bomb.  It’s what he said next: “That’s why Trump must be removed from office now.” 

As Wayne Allyn Root put it: “Donny revealed what liberals are all thinking, deep down. Trump is a lock for re-election by a wide margin. As Deutsch admitted, that’s why he must be stopped now.

Crazed liberals scream for his removal … impeachment … even assassination. Because they know Trump is succeeding. He is effective, he is erasing Barack Obama and he is fundamentally changing America back to a conservative, capitalist nation. They know they can’t stop him at the ballot box, so they have decided they have to stop him any other way they can — even resorting to violence, conspiracy and sedition.”

Did you see the words, violence, conspiracy, sedition…even assassination?

This explains everything.  It explains why CNN sent reporters to Thailand to interview prostitutes who “may have dirt on Trump.”  It explains why Hillary is not being investigated for Russian collusion.  It shows why the left will stop at nothing to get him out now.

Last December my spirit was deeply disturbed.  I sought relief in intercession.  My thoughts turned toward the President.  I wrote this to our partners in late December: “A massive disruption, is planned within the next 90 days.  There will be a major move against the president by both Democrats and Republicans.  In short, you will see the most vicious assaults—on our freedoms, our faith, and our children—you have ever seen.”  Those 90 days are up March 24th—the day of a massive march for gun control.

What I didn’t know is why the left lost its mind.  Now I do.  It is the certain reelection of Donald Trump.  It is hideous to think what they might do.  It is disgusting that they don’t care if Trump makes life better for Americans—that’s how deranged they truly are.  But there is a positive to this.

Gideon asked God for one last sign he would defeat the Midianites. It came from the last source he expected: The enemy.  God told Gideon to sneak into the camp of the Midianites—an army as many as the sand of the seashore in number.  He arrived at the right tent in time to hear this: Judges 7: 13 “Gideon crept up to one of the tents just as a man inside had wakened from a nightmare and was telling his tent-mate about it.

“I had this strange dream,” he was saying, “and there was this huge loaf of barley bread that came tumbling down into our camp. It hit our tent and knocked it flat!” 14 The other soldier replied, “Your dream can mean only one thing! Gideon, the son of Joash, the Israeli, is going to come and massacre all the allied forces of Midian!” 15 When Gideon heard the dream and the interpretation, all he could do was just stand there worshiping God! Then he returned to his men and shouted, ‘Get up! For the Lord is going to use you to conquer all the vast armies of Midian!’”

Beloved, the enemy is admitting reelection.  We should rejoice but we should also be interceding for our president to be protected form whatever is coming.  Now you know what is going on and how to pray.

TRUMP’S VISION FOR AMERICA

By Peggy Noonan

Trump believes that America should not intervene militarily in other country’s problems without being compensated for doing so. If America is going to risk the lives of our soldiers and incur the expense of going to war, then the nations we help must be willing to pay for our help. Using the Iraq War as an example, he cites the huge monetary expense to American taxpayers (over $1. 5 trillion, and possibly much more depending on what sources are used to determine the cost) in addition to the cost in human life. He suggests that Iraq should have been required to give us enough of their oil to pay for the expenses we incurred. He includes in those expenses the medical costs for our military and $5 million for each family that lost a loved one in the war and $2 million for each family of soldiers who received severe injuries.

Trump wants America to have a strong military again. He believes the single most important function of the federal government is national defense. He has said he wants to find the General Patton or General MacArthur who could lead our military buildup back to the strength it needs to be. While he hasn’t said it directly that I know of, Trump’s attitude about America and about winning tells me he’d most likely be quick to eliminate rules of engagement that handicap our military in battle. Clearly Trump is a “win at all costs” kind of guy, and I’m sure that would apply to our national defense and security, too.

peggy_noonan-copy

Trump wants a strong foreign policy and believes that it must include 7 core principles: A) American interests come first. Always. No apologies. 😎 Maximum firepower and military preparedness. C) Only go to war to win. D) Stay loyal to your friends and suspicious of your enemies. E) Keep the technological sword razor sharp. F) See the unseen Prepare for threats before they materialize. G) Respect and support our present and past warriors.

Trump believes that terrorists who are captured should be treated as military combatants, not as criminals like the Obama administration treats them.

Trump makes the point that China ‘s manipulation of their currency has given them unfair advantage in our trade dealings with them. He says we must tax their imports to offset their currency manipulation, which will cause American companies to be competitive again and drive manufacturing back to America and create jobs here. Although he sees China as the biggest offender, he believes that America should protect itself from all foreign efforts to take our jobs and manufacturing. For example, Ford is building a plant in Mexico and Trump suggests that every part or vehicle Ford makes in Mexico be taxed 35% if they want to bring it into the U.S., which would cause companies like Ford to no longer be competitive using their Mexican operations and move manufacturing back to the U. S. , once again creating jobs here.

Trump wants passage of NOPEC legislation (No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act – NOPEC – S. 394), which would allow the government to sue OPEC for violating antitrust laws. According to Trump, that would break up the cartel. He also wants to unleash our energy companies to drill domestically (sound like Sarah Palin’s drill baby, drill?) thereby increasing domestic production creating jobs and driving domestic costs of oil and gas down while reducing dependence on foreign oil.

Trump believes a secure border is critical for both security and prosperity in America . He wants to build a wall to stop illegals from entering and put controls on immigration. (And he says he’ll get Mexico to pay for the wall, which many have scoffed at, but given his business successes I wouldn’t put it past him.) He also wants to enforce our immigration laws and provide no path to citizenship for those who are here illegally.

Trump wants a radical change to the tax system to not only make it better for average Americans, but also to encourage businesses to stay here and foreign businesses to move here. The resulting influx of money to our nation would do wonders for our economy. He wants to make America the place to do business. He also wants to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. This would put more than $1. 6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1. 5 million jobs we’ve lost to the current tax system. He also wants to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax, but for those willing to move jobs back to America they would not be taxed. And for citizens he has a tax plan that would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth. He wants to change the personal income tax to: Up to $30,000 taxed at 1%. From $30,000 to $100,000 taxed at 5%. >From $100,000 to $1,000,000 taxed at 10%. $1,000,000 and above taxed at 15%.

Trump wants Obamacare repealed. He says it’s a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity” that “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed”. He believes in allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace to allow competition to drive prices down. He also believes in tort reform to get rid of defensive medicine and lower costs.

Trump wants spending reforms in Washington, acknowledging that America spends far more than it receives in revenue. He has said he believes that if we don’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion it will be impossible to save this country.

Even though he says we need to cut spending, he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. He believes that the citizens have faithfully paid in to the system to have these services available and that the American government has an obligation to fulfill its end of the bargain and provide those benefits. Therefore, he wants to build the economy up so that we have the revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients. He disagrees with Democrats who think raising taxes is the answer and says that when you do that you stifle the economy. On the other hand, when you lower taxes and create an environment to help businesses they will grow, hire more workers, and those new workers will be paying taxes that become more tax revenue for the government.

Trump also wants reform of the welfare state saying that America needs “a safety net, not a hammock. “ He believes in a welfare to work program that would help reduce the welfare rolls and encourage people to get back to work. And he wants a crackdown on entitlement fraud.

Trump believes climate change is a hoax.

Trump opposes Common Core.

Trump is pro-life, although he allows for an exception due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother.

Trump is pro 2nd Amendment rights.

Trump’s view on same-sex marriage is that marriage is between a man and a woman, but he also believes that this is a state’s rights issue, not a federal issue.

Trump supports the death penalty.

Trump believes that there is a lack of common sense, innovative thinking in Washington (Hmmm. . . looks like he believes in horse sense! ). He says it’s about seeing the unseen and that’s the kind of thinking we need to turn this country around. He tells a personal story to illustrate the point: “When I opened Trump National Golf Club at Rancho Palos Verdes in Los Angeles , I was immediately told that I would need to build a new and costly ballroom. The current ballroom was gorgeous, but it only sat 200 people and we were losing business because people needed a larger space for their events. Building a new ballroom would take years to get approval and permits (since it’s on the Pacific Ocean ), and cost about $5 million. I took one look at the ballroom and saw immediately what needed to be done. The problem wasn’t the size of the room, it was the size of the chairs. They were huge, heavy, and unwieldy. We didn’t need a bigger ballroom, we needed smaller chairs! So I had them replaced with high-end, smaller chairs. I then had our people sell the old chairs and got more money for them than the cost of the new chairs. In the end, the ballroom went from seating 200 people to seating 320 people. Our visitors got the space they desired, and I spared everyone the hassle of years of construction and $5 million of expense. It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a little common sense. On top of his saving years of construction and $5 million in expenses, he also was able to keep the ballroom open for business during the time it would have been under remodeling, which allowed him to continue to make money on the space instead of losing that revenue during construction time.

Donald Trump’s entire life has been made up of success and winning. He’s been accused of bankruptcies, but that’s not true. He’s never filed personal bankruptcy. He’s bought companies and legally used bankruptcy laws to restructure their debt, just as businesses do all the time. But he’s never been bankrupt personally.

He’s a fighter that clearly loves America and would fight for our nation. Earlier I quoted Trump saying, “I love America . And when you love something, you protect it passionately – fiercely, even.”

8 Reasons Democrats Hate Traditional Marriage

Democrats are ruining marriage

8 Reasons Democrats Hate Traditional Marriage

By GINA LOUDON

Have you ever wondered what it is about traditional marriage that is so offensive to Democrats?

1) Married people overwhelmingly vote Republican

For the last several elections, traditionally married people have overwhelmingly voted Republican. Married men and women supported Romney by 14 percent. Married women alone supported Romney by seven points. If only married people were allowed to vote, the GOP couldn’t lose no matter how hard it tried – no matter how spineless and worthless its candidates. The inverse is also true. If Democrats can cause fewer people to get married and fewer people to value traditional marriage, Democrats can destroy the GOP’s advantage among that group of voters.

2) Married people are physically healthier

Studies throughout the years have all agreed that in almost every way, married couples are physically healthier. Married people live longer, are less likely to develop cancer and heart disease, and are healthier in more ways than can be listed here.

You may wonder why Democrats are opposed to people being healthy.

Simply put, when people are healthy, they don’t need help from the government. Of course, no matter how healthy one may be, we are all now forced to purchase health insurance.

3) Married people are mentally healthier

Married people are less likely to suffer depression, develop dementia, commit suicide and are protected from a host of other disorders. Married people are also more likely to describe themselves as happy.

But why would Democrats be opposed to people being mentally healthier?

All it takes is one mentally deranged person to act out violently for Democrats to rush to a TV camera to call for more gun control and government surveillance. If only government agents were able to snoop on everyone (conservatives) 24/7, they could prevent violent outbursts. Also, they claim that if all guns were banned (except from men who guard the president and leftist politicians), there would be no more gun violence.

4) Married people are wealthier

Research done by Ohio State University found that married people individually are almost twice as wealthy (93 percent wealthier) than single people.

To a Democrat, that screams income inequality. It is unfair in the mind of a progressive for married people to have more money than unmarried people. Besides, what did those evil married people do to steal that money from everyone else? Don’t worry. Democrats will turn those tax credits for married couples into taxes levied against married couples. If only those pesky right-wing extremists would get out of the way, they could tax traditional marriage out of existence. That hasn’t been formally proposed yet, but don’t think that hasn’t crossed the minds of Democrats in D.C.

5) Marriage celebrates the differences between men and women

Feminist Democrats have been complaining for decades about being on unequal footing with men. Married people come together to combine the strengths that are inherent in males and females. Married people recognize the differences between the genders. They understand these differences are natural. Traditional marriage is disgusting to the militant feminist, and they’ve joined forces with Democrats to make sure that gender differences are blurred and that marriage is destroyed.

6) “Big Daddy Government” wants to replace the support of a spouse

Democrats love when people are dependent on D.C. Once Democrats can end the ability of churches to charitably help people and end the ability of spouses to help each other, the only place to turn will be a politician or a bureaucrat. More government employees means more voters who support big-government Democrats.

7) Marriage promotes accountability

Single people can make bad decisions without reproach. Men are better at making some decisions than women and vice versa. Whether it is a financial decision, a health-related matter or anything in between, married people usually talk things over before decisions are made and make better decisions from the start.

The government doesn’t need to restrict menu items at the fast-food restaurant to make a man quit his junk-food eating binges. The wife will handle that! The government doesn’t need to handle people’s finances or make sure they are planning for retirement. The husband will handle that.

When bad decisions are made or about to be made, one spouse will often warn of possible negative outcomes, or dissuade the poor decision. Democrats are dependent on people being dependent. If more Americans make solid decisions, and are held accountable by those who love them, then they need less government in their lives.

8) Marriage promotes children

Organizations like ZPG (Zero Population Growth), Planned Parenthood and even animal rights groups flourish when fewer children are born, or when having fewer children is the goal. All of those organizations are arms of the Democratic Party, so when they flourish, so does the cash in the coffers of the Democratic Party.

Should the government just stay out of marriage? No!

Democrats flourish when marriage is diminished, but many on the right side of the political spectrum still refuse to take a stand on the issue. They have fallen for the lie of the left that conservatives should be neutral on the issue. The idea that the government should “stay out of marriage” is exactly what the left would love the right to believe. If Democrats and their allies actively push to destroy marriage, and Republicans can be convinced that they should be neutral on the issue, then Democrats will win this one easily and traditional marriage will be something we will soon read about in history books.

There are few things the government can do to make a society safer, healthier and wealthier. Promoting traditional marriage is the biggest and easiest one of all. This is an easy sell to the American people if the GOP will just grow a backbone. Anyone who believes in a stronger America should make it their main issue in upcoming elections to defend and promote traditional marriage.

Who could possibly be against a stronger America? The answer: Democrats.

Strong Delusion

strong delusion

Strong Delusion

America, you are under a strong delusion. The terrifying part is who may be doing it.

by Mario Murillo

No one can explain why.  Why would America veer into this mindless frenzy to pull her own greatness out by the roots?

-Why would a generation reelect a man that plunged them into poverty, violence and chaos?

-Why would a generation of black pastors trade in their Bibles to stand with the most blatantly anti-church agenda in American history?

-How can you explain a populace that gleefully opens their border to welcome murderers, rapists and drug dealers to come and ravage innocent citizens?

-Why would you aging hippies and 70’s protesters stand with a president who embodies all of the tyranny you fought against?   How bizarre to end up being the anti-free speech movement.

why

Why, America, are you okay with a state owned media that will not investigate the crimes of Benghazi, the IRS, the Justice Department, and the NSA?

What is up when a man can steal your credit card–in history’s greatest case of identity theft– run up a $19 trillion national debt, and you still smile at him?

Why has science allowed itself to become a tool of the state?  Scientists will not level with us on anything that will challenge the agenda.   What will legalization of every form of sexual perversion do to children?  We won’t know because it is “hateful” to ask.

What is really going on with the weather and why do you want to spend vast amounts of our hard earned money to enforce a pact with all the nations of the world?  “Trust us,” they say, “we know best.”

What is this insane celebration of sexual deviance that blasphemes the civil rights movement?

benghazi copy

Jonathan Cahn, Rabbi, Pastor, Bible teacher and author of “The Harbinger” and “The Mystery of the Shemitah,” says the June 26 Supreme Court ruling that legalized gay marriage in all 50 states marks the formal end to Christian America. Barring a “miracle of God,” he says in the 4th of July message, “the die has been cast.”

What drug was the Supreme Court on when it violated every oath it had ever taken to ramrod Gay Marriage on all Americans?   They created a law even though the constitution declares that they do not have that power.  They even admitted that they created a precedent that will bring polygamy and adult/child marriage to the court.

Why would we declare war on Jesus Christ and protect the images of Mohammed?  What form of mad double-mindedness denounces the church as hateful while it protects Islamic extremists?

There is only one explanation: America, you are under a strong mass delusion.  No nation willfully abandons its greatness in exchange for perversion, poverty and misery unless there has been a spirit of delusion unleashed in the land.

Obama-angry-10

Stella Morabito said, “In fact, many newly propagandized ideas seem to have taken America by storm just in the past decade or so. Same-sex marriage is only one of those ideas. Transgenderism is now eclipsing that notion, and its propaganda techniques—wrapped in the language of civil rights—are getting Americans on board with the idea of erasing all sex distinctions in law, including their own. It’s as though Americans are buying into a fast-talking sales pitch without being allowed to read the print, whether it’s large print or small.”

But it is even worse than she says.  Not only are Americans deluded, they disconnect from their own suffering in order to keep the lie alive.  I give money to the homeless a lot.  Try this… ask the next panhandler who they voted for in the last two elections.   See if they remember having to beg before this presidency.   Ask them if there is any regret.  The befuddled look you get will say it all.

There are ways to measure a generation’s decline.  Peter Marshall, the legendary Chaplain of the United States Senate, once drew a comparison between the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 and the sinking of the Athenia in 1939.

As the Titanic sank, the men on board sang the hymn Nearer my God to Thee.  The men on board the Athenia sang Roll out the barrel, we’ll have a barrel of fun.   Peter Marshall said, “You can see what has happened to a nation’s faith – you can see what has happened to the faith of people in thirty years, can’t you? Facing eternity, to the strains of the beer-barrel polka, what a commentary, upon the faith, of immortal souls.”

generation copy

THE MEN ON THE TITANIC SANG THE HYMN “NEARER MY GOD TO THEE”  WHILE THE MEN ON THE ATHENIA SANG “THE BEER BARREL POLKA”

But what would Peter Marshall think of us now?  What would he say about this comparison?  In 1976, a generation declares Bruce Jenner a national hero for winning the Olympic Decathlon.  “Jenner is twirling the nation like a baton; he and his wife, Chrystie, are so high up on the pedestal of American heroism, it would take a crane to get them down,” wrote Tony Kornheiser in The New York Times in 1977.

Now we contrast that with 39 years later.  A generation hails him as a hero for becoming a woman.  Our president leads the cheer saying, “It takes courage.”  This is our new definition of courage…this is our new heroism.

Jenner copy

2 Thessalonians 2:11,12 declares,  “And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

There is one very big question to answer.  Is our mass delusion leading to the judgment of God or is the mass delusion judgment in itself?   It is chilling to consider.  We have always assumed that America’s plunge into moral insanity was the work of the devil.

If you think that Satan can send delusion, think about what God can do to delude minds into destroying themselves.  Is this the first stage of our judgment?

What if God has turned America over to a strong delusion in order to get her to believe a lie?  Masses of Americans have come to believe that the most absurd, destructive and mindless way to live is okay with them.  How could they do this without a spirit of delusion?  How could they keep going unless they were catatonic zombies marching to the beat of a national hallucination?

hallucination

What if that delusion extends to the church?  Is mass delusion the reason for the apathy and silence of American Christians?  Doesn’t delusion explain how we can have giddy Christian gatherings in the face of certain national doom?

Why is your pastor not crying out to the nation to repent?  Why is there no chorus of prayer asking for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit?  How can any voice enter a pulpit at this time without a sense of urgency?  Is it because a spirit is on them that holds them in denial?

We have every reason to believe that prior generations of Christians would be staging mass rallies, crying out with fasting and prayer.  If you announce such a thing today, believers will not show up.

American Christians binge on flattering sermons and exotic emotionalism.  Some are even getting drunk and carousing while the nation burns.  How can they do that without a strong delusion?

America, it feels intelligent to bask in this new agenda.  You can feel hip legalizing everything while making God illegal. Take a closer look.  Your heart, mind and emotions are deteriorating under the influence of the culture.  You are losing your children, your free time, independent thought and even logic to this horrific lie.

You know that when you invited God out, you invited misery in.   You know that One Nation under God was not just a motto; it was a catalyst to prosperity, justice and happiness. That is what getting right with God does.

Yet, the delusion runs so deep that we cannot see the next step in our destruction is Hillary Clinton.  She has already screamed at us that Benghazi does not matter.  She has already surpassed Obama avoiding questions and hiding her true intentions.

Peter stood before Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost and cried out, “Save yourself from this perverse generation (Act 2:40).” It was a call to escape mass delusion.

There may be a thread of mercy in all of this. Like the father, wanting to make his son stop smoking, made him smoke a whole pack of cigarettes until the boy threw up.  Maybe God is letting us overdose in this swamp in the hopes that we will vomit out this insanity before it is too late.

On the other hand…what if we are under judgment and have been turned over to mass delusion for our destruction?    In either case, why would you read this, walk away and not repent?  Isn’t that proof of delusion?  Right now, kneel and pray and tell God that you choose life.

Three words I am forbidden to use to describe Hillary Clinton

Three words I am forbidden to use to describe Hillary Clinton

By Mario Murillo

Are Christians going to vote for Hillary Clinton?  Of course they are.  The Orwellian propaganda machine is in full vigor.  The same pastors who bury their Bible and their convictions when it comes to the Democratic Party Platform will do so again.

The same crime family that brought us Obama has anointed Hillary as the heir apparent.

None of this will stop me from speaking out to the church.  None of this will stop me from believing that America can experience a supernatural rescue from the scaly hands that pull the strings of the anti-God/ anti-America movement.

Let me make my position clear.  I believe that Barack Obama is the frying pan and Hillary Clinton is the fire.  She is not simply going to be the third term of Obama.  She will be worse.  Whatever pulse is left in America after Obama leaves, she will try to snuff out.  Are these harsh words?   Maybe but facts are a stubborn thing.

Believers who voted for Obama in his first election did so from misguided optimism.  With Hillary they will have to get Christians to elevate their vote to blind stupidity.

Even the people who are working to get Hillary elected president know she is not qualified and I believe that that they know she should not be president.  The problem is that they want her to be elected.  She would bring a disastrous presidency at the worst possible time.

The Clinton campaign must generate a tidal wave of self-loathing and create an electorate in the grip of battered wife syndrome.  How else can you tell people to sign up for an accelerated version of the misery of the last 8 years?

Hillary-Allah

 

Welcome to the gender card: Anything you say against Hillary is now solely because she is a woman

So what will they do to get her elected or at least make it look like she was elected?  Here is the answer: Remember when Barack Obama was running for President, and suddenly racism was around every corner? Every single criticism of Obama was scrutinized for racial “dog whistles” and code words. Oh wait—that’s still happening.

However, the age of racism is now lapsing into the age of sexism, as many conservatives predicted it would should Hillary Clinton make a run for the White House.

A group that’s referring to itself as Hillary Clinton’s “Super Volunteers” has promised to track when the media uses “coded” sexist words — such as “ambitious” and “insincere” — to describe her, according to New York Times political reporter Amy Chozick. The other forbidden words and phrases are “polarizing,” “calculating,” “disingenuous,” “insincere,” “ambitious,” “inevitable,” “entitled,” “over-confident,” “secretive,” “will do anything to win,”

Yours truly has been warned of three of these forbidden words when writing about Hillary:  Secretive, Ambitious, and Entitled.

So here goes:

Secretive:  This is mild compared to what she really is.  She steadfastly lives by a secret code.  That has been her MO since the beginning.    Carly Fiorina  said “After the famous reset with Russia, Russia is now a more powerful adversary than it was when she became secretary of state. Our relationship with Israel has deteriorated dramatically. The Middle East is in flames. And of course she has not been transparent. She told us for weeks after the purposeful terrorist attack in Benghazi that this was the result of an American video in a demonstration gone bad, and now we learn that she has used a private email server and a private email system for the most sensitive of communications while she was secretary of state. She doesn’t have a track record of leadership or trustworthiness. She’s not the woman for the White House.

hillary vicious

Ambitious:   Viciously ambitious is more like it.  He has been an “end justifies the means” practitioner from the beginning.  Hillary was fired for her work during the Watergate investigation. As her supervisor at the time put it, “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

Former Secret Service agent Dan Emmett has recently come forward with his claims that Senator Hillary Clinton is allegedly “vicious”. Emmett has made claims that Hillary treats most of her security guards as hired services, using profanity and derogatory words when working with them.

Emmett was frequently told by Hillary to “get the f*ck away from [her]” when working with one another. Dan Emmett has worked with President George W. Bush, George H.W along with Bill Clinton himself, giving him decades of experience and merit throughout Washington D.C. Because of Emmett’s credibility and history, the backlash is finding itself in numerous headlines nationally. Emmett is currently working towards writing and releasing a tell-all book on his personal and professional stories related to Hillary Clinton.

Think of the Many of the Clinton era scandals in the 90’s – including the opening up of 900 confidential FBI files of political opponents – cast Hillary in a suspicious light. Nothing was proven, but you know how that goes.

Entitlement: Under her reign as Secretary of State Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were murdered when terrorists stormed the American compound in Benghazi, Libya. When she was questioned about the Obama Administration’s initial story that the attack was provoked by an anti-Islam YouTube video, Clinton callously blurted, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” Really!?

I will continue to speak out and not let up.  So if the radical feminist left has anymore words of inspiration regarding Hillary please keep me supplied.

THE BEST DAYS OF YOUR LIFE

final best days

Millions have left the church.  This is the reality that Christian leaders do not want to talk about.  However, facts do not go away.  The facts are these: an entire generation has virtually discarded the faith of their parents.

Not only this, but many who were on fire for God and even effective vessels have fallen and have abandoned their faith in Jesus.  A famous Christian singer announces that he is now an atheist.  Is that shocking? The real shock is that the church is not shocked because this kind of recanting of faith is now common.

Maybe you were wounded on the battlefield and did not get up again.  The reasons are as varied as the people themselves are.  It may have been an abusive church.  It may have been an old habit that raged its way back in control.  It may have been a divorce, a false teaching that weakened you, or the gravitational force of unbelief and skepticism of this age.

The most common cause is sudden tragedy.  Something horrendous happened that ran off of your theological map.  You felt that you had no choice but to abandon your faith.  You may be angry with God.  You are not alone.  There are millions in this condition.iStock_000003894799Medium[1]

The Holy Spirit has burned a message into my soul that I cannot contain. I want this message to get into the hands of as many people as possible.  I have never felt as great an urgency to open my heart to you.  Millions have left the church.

Let me be frank, I believe that God is turning your heart back to Him.  He is doing this on a massive scale.

He has done this before.  Right before the fire fell on Mount Carmel, Elijah prayed these words, “Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that You are the Lord God, and that You have turned their hearts back to You again (1 Kings 18:37).”

He is doing this not just because He loves you but because He is trying to spare America: “and he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse (Malachi 4:6).”

You are most likely a casualty of the lukewarm American church.  Widespread compromise left her unprotected.  The active ingredient was left out of preaching; that ingredient is surrender.  The power of God to stand against tragedy and evil never kicked in for this very reason.

The Holy Spirit is intensifying His voice to the fallen, the wounded and the forgotten.  While His wooing is loving and hopeful, it does not mask the truth.

In America entire churches are backslidden!  And it is not unprecedented.  Look at these verses: “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me (Revelations 3:15).”

Best days insert

Okay, you may have been caught in the cultural crossfire of the compromised church, the toxic church and even the false church, but why lose your soul to get back at false ministers and sick churches?

This is about you and Jesus.  This is about a destiny that God still keeps for you.  There is one thing that Satan does not want you to remember.  It is the one thing that can break the chains of lies and heartbreak.

What Satan does not want you to think about is this: if you brush away the cobwebs of church politics, hypocrites, and unexpected tragedy you will admit that the best days of your life were when you walked with God in fervent commitment.  Those were the days of peace and joy. 

The best days were the days before anybody and anything came between you and Jesus.  You prayed and sensed that no matter what everything would come out alright.  Even your questions were harnessed by a total trust in the character of God!

You have never felt anything like His presence.  Those were the best days.  Those days can come again.  Jesus is knocking and wants to have dinner with you alone.  “I will sup with him” Jesus promised.

I will admit that I am speaking a divine desperation to come over you.  I want you to break, I want you to yearn to come home to your best life, your only life.  There is an army rising up, made of people that Satan thought he had but is about to lose on a grand scale.  Welcome back to the war!

A TIME TO STAND


A Time to Stand July 4th 2016,  By Mario Murillo

They had money, education and prestige so why would they sign a letter that promised to turn them into hunted animals for the rest of their lives? Five of them were captured and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.  Two lost their sons in the war; another two had sons captured. Nine died from wounds in battle.

I am talking about the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence. They signed it because, while they valued their homes, their businesses and their prestige, they valued liberty even more. But did you know that nearly half of the pastors in America today would not have supported the Declaration of Independence?  Think of it, if it had rested with these modern preachers there would be no United States today.  Wait until you hear why.

This letter has two burning goals.  The first is to clear the air about why I speak out against our president and our congress and the second is to call for a general resistance by the preachers in America to the policies that are destroying the nation.

These 56 were godly, successful, and wise men were driven to an inescapable conclusion and it is urgent that we realize that history is repeating itself.  “When in the Course of human events” The word WHEN is the key word in the opening phrase of the Declaration of Independence. The entire document rests on that single word.  It means that something changed so drastically that they broke with deep connections and long standing traditions.  It means that after agonizing prayer and deliberation their course of action became undeniable and inescapable.

The Church in America has just had her WHEN moment:

-When the president becomes lawless and the Congress becomes clueless, when unstoppable crime and poverty are the direct result of government gridlock, when the church and law-abiding citizens are targeted by the FBI, the IRS and the NSA for their religious or political beliefs.

-When Americans owe 60 trillion dollars in personal debt which means we are literally living on borrowed time. When the middle class is 25% of what it was in the 1950s, and about to vanish. When even youth, Obama’s last bastion of support have awakened to him and rejected him. 

-When they are calling him out for his disastrous plunge into socialism and removing their medical rights, violating their privacy and stealing their future.

-When our borders are broken down and when the world has become dangerous because our foreign policy is in shambles and when the destruction of the Republic is at hand, then it is time for the Church to intervene and stand with the Bible first and then the Constitution.

Listen to further words from the Declaration: “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

This is exactly where we are right now.   Half of all of our pastors would not have supported the Declaration of Independence? How is this possible?  It is possible because a noxious wind of doctrine is blowing through the church that cheapens words like Grace, Honor and Love and engenders complacency.  Many leaders even now openly teach that repentance is unnecessary and that confronting government is never right.

thomas-jefferson quote copy

We have seen this all before. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the great German pastor and theologian was asked in 1943 how it was possible for the church to sit back and let Hitler seize absolute power.  His answer was very direct; he said “it was the teaching of cheap grace.”

Is it just a coincidence that the same spiritual emphasis that lulled Lutherans to sleep has reappeared at the time when our freedom is in mortal danger?  No it is not a coincidence, it is Satan. For the devil, this doctrine of passivity could not have come at a better time.

Consider what a satanic masterstroke it is to prevent us from doing two things:

1. Provoke us to silence at the very moment that the nation needs to hear righteous voices.              

2. Downplay the need for repentance when repentance is most urgently required.

When asked why pastors don’t speak out Dr. Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Church Dallas said,  “I think one reason is a lot of Christian leaders have the wrong idea about Jesus,” Jeffress replied “They see Jesus as this little, wimpy guy who walked around plucking daisies and eating birdseed and saying nice things, but never doing anything controversial. The fact is, Jesus did confront his culture with truth — and he ended up being crucified because of it.”  “I believe it’s time for pastors to say, you know, I don’t care about controversy, I don’t care whether I’m going to lose church members, I don’t care about building a big church. I’m going to stand for truth regardless of what happens.”

quote 1

Here are the two portions of scripture that are often misused to silence the church:

 1. Matthew 7: 1 “Judge not, that you be not judged.”

2. 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.    2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers are not terrors to good works, but to evil.”

The signers of the Declaration of Independence knew the Bible better than 90% of our ordained ministers today.  They grappled with the same issues we face today and asked the same questions we ask today.  Twenty four of them were lawyers and jurists and almost half had been to Bible school or seminary.  In the process, they must have confronted those two portions of scripture. They also prayed fervently and believed that they had heard from God.  Years later Benjamin Franklin when they were working on the Constitution reminded them of their daily prayer for wisdom on the Declaration: “In the beginning of the Contest with Great Britain, when we were sensible of danger we had daily prayer in this room for the divine protection. Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered.”

Declaration_independence

This is what I believe they concluded:

1. Matthew 7: 1   When Jesus condemned judging, he wasn’t at all implying we should never make judgments about anyone. After all, a few verses later, Jesus himself calls certain people “pigs” and “dogs” (Matt 7:6) and “wolves in sheep’s clothing” (7:15). … What Jesus condemns is a critical and judgmental spirit, an unholy sense of superiority. Jesus commanded us to examine ourselves first for the problems we so easily see in others. Only then can we help remove the speck in another’s eye – which, incidentally, assumes that a problem exists and must be confronted.

2. Romans 13:1-2 Many Christians interpret this passage of Scripture to mean that we should offer unquestioning obedience to government, even if it’s an evil and corrupt government.  This is simply not true.  Most people fail to consider verse 3, “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil.”  Clearly, God is speaking about GOOD government in Romans 13… Because they are a terror to evil works, i.e., crimes.

But these 56 men are also proof of the power of God to help us right now! I am speaking out because I know that we still have time for a miracle.  Here is my 5 declarations to you:

1.  We must rise up as an outspoken unified, cross denominational firewall against the destruction of America. Whether you believe in tongues or not; whether you believe in total immersion baptism or spot removing, regardless of your view of how the world will end we must find common ground at the foot of the Cross.  When it comes to the preservation of our liberty our doctrinal nuances must take a backseat to unified action.

2. We must not think that telling the truth is unloving.  Paul said, “Love does not rejoice in iniquity but rejoices in the truth.”  We must sacrifice short-term acceptance for long-term results.  In the long run, when the nation is spared the masses will see that repentance and prayer saved the day… and that my friend is real love.  Politicians must feel the force of our convictions. We must, in no uncertain terms, remind the denizens on both sides of the aisle of the Washington swamp that they work for us or we will fire them.

3. Let your convictions rule you and not theological trends.  Find your assignment and vow to execute it. Listen to me! Servant of God:your best friend is your destiny and your mortal enemy is the intoxication of prevailing opinion.

4. Preach Bible truth from the pulpit.  Let me put it to you plainly: It all starts with the preaching.  If American preaching returns to the Bible and our sermons are thundered from burning hearts full of the Holy Spirit we have more than a good chance to save America. If preaching stays as is, there is no chance…period. Pastors were dispensing new age goobly gook when they should have been training the people in biblical morality.  This is one big reason that 6 million Christians voted for their pocketbooks instead their convictions. Remember the words of Dr. Jeffress “I’m going to lose church members; I don’t care about building a big church. I’m going to stand for truth regardless of what happens.”

5. Let us pray!  Call that fellow minister that you haven’t spoken to in 20 years.  Meet for prayer, not mystical prayer, not tepid prayer, and not complicated prayer just heart felt prayer.  Pray like those 56 men prayed in Independence Hall.  Pray Psalm 119:126 “It is time for You oh God to act for they have nullified Your law.”

We will never speak out against the government unless the Holy Spirit prompts us.  And it will never be something we do instead of the Gospel but because of it.  Those who believe we should remain silent will get a lot more silence than they bargained for if we lose our freedom of speech. To say that will never happen is to forget all of the things that have happened in 6 years that we never thought could happen. Moreover, we’ve always had a prophetic calling to warn the nation.

It only seems like we have changed but it is the White House that has changed. It actively opposes the Gospel.  One of the campaign officials even boasted that in winning the election, “we defeated Christianity.” Let me ask you one final question: If not now, at what point will it feel right for the ministers of America to drop their petty disagreements and provide a unified opposition to the destruction of our Constitution, our Judeo Christian traditions, marriage and the future of our children? Many ministers lash out at those who out speak against the president.

This is so strange!  No pastors ever questioned us when were outspoken about the damage that heroin, crack cocaine or gang violence did to inner city neighborhoods.  But now that the government has become the most dangerous gang in the hood and government dependency has become the most addictive drug we supposed to remain silent? However, I am overcome by hope for America and here is why:

It was 1972. I stood in the rain outside Pauley Ballroom on the Berkeley Campus. Inside, Jane Fonda led a loud chorus of obscenities.  A thousand students were cursing God and America. Instinctively, I raised my Bible it pointed it at the hall.  I confessed that one day I would lead a bigger and louder crowd in shouts of praise to God and blessing to America.  That miracle came to pass in vivid detail in less than three years.  1,200 students raised a deafening shout of praise to God and blessing to America and as a part of the larger Jesus Movement it changed the mood of the nation.

I stand in awe of the towering miracle that is the Declaration of Independence. I weep because I know that I am not worthy of its courage and truth.  It haunts me. It stalks me. It exposes me, and it comforts me. It is the quintessential moral compass of a nation that has lost its way. I feel my knees buckling beneath me in prayer for I feel that evil has touched something precious to Jesus.  This grand document proves God’s amazing ways and that He is waiting in the wings to answer prayer and heal the land.  Admit it!  We don’t know what to do but we know who does know what to do.  If they could, those 56 men would say it with all of their strength: A MIRACLE IS COMING IF WE PRAY AND THEN OBEY.

P.S.

It would be a thrill for me to hear from those of you who are taking a stand with us against the demise of our nation and believe  ministers should not be silent as America is destroyed.  I value your comments and support.
