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.

One phrase can change your entire reaction to these end times

 one phrase

ONE PHRASE CAN CHANGE YOUR ENTIRE REACTION TO THESE END TIMES

By Mario Murillo

To fully grasp the phrase and the power it unleashes we must first admit that we have entered a season in American life that is the worst that Christians have ever known.  There are forces crashing against our spirit that are unheard of by prior generations.

There are things that are about to hit all Americans and it is a fact that hardly anyone is ready for these things. Here is but a short list of impending crisis:

The persecution of American believers will accelerate: The enemies of the faith have redefined classic moral values to make them look like hatred.  Political Correctness has morphed into Enforced Correctness.  The church is no longer allowed to disagree and Christians are told by a government and the media that they must comply or face criminal charges.

 Extended age and pension pressure means the collapse of welfare:  Most will not be able to stop working and spend their old age eking out an existence.  This one is a double whammy to many who are retiring right now.  Their savings, 401Ks, IRAs and pensions have shrunk while the number of years that they will need to finance has increased.  Suddenly, long life feels like a curse!

Health care is going to get much, much worse.  The quality is going to get miserable, doctors will refuse to work with insurance companies and costs for medicine and care will skyrocket.  This could not be happening at a worse time!   New diseases, viruses and emotional traumas will soon overtake society.

Political division guarantees that real solutions to America’s problems will not be found. Don’t look for common sense to come to Washington from either party.  They are too divided to act in the best interest of the people.

Unless there is drastic action, we will see the worst decline of the church in our nation’s history. Vast amounts of America were given away by a generation that did not know its Bible or what God has done in our history.

However there is one phrase and one attitude that will not only save your life but give you power that you never imagined.  There is one phrase that will make all of the difference in the world to your health physically and mentally.  There is one declaration that will pave the way for you to conquer anything that the future holds.

So what is the phrase that if it came roaring out of our spirit would give us the upper hand over all of the insanity of this time?  It begins with a very special kind of leverage.   Read on:

Archimedes, genius of antiquity discovered the laws of the lever.  He once wrote to King Hiero of Syracuse, whose kinsman and friend he was, that this force could be used to move any weight. He said, “Give me a place to stand and I will move the earth!”

King Hiero, who was absolutely astonished by the statement, asked him to prove it. In the harbor was a ship that had proved impossible to launch even by the combined efforts of all the men of Syracuse. Archimedes, who had been examining the properties of levers and pulleys, built a machine that allowed him to single-handedly move the ship from a distance away.

Thousands of years later man still conquers immovable objects with the science of levers and pulleys.

Now apply that principle to the work of the Holy Spirit.  He whom Jesus sent has come along side us to apply simple but irresistible force on all of our trials and tribulations.  It begins with this phrase that hit me like a lightning bolt:

THE END TIMES ARE NOT HAPPENING TO ME.  I AM HAPPENING TO THE END TIMES.

Is this an arrogant boast or worse a delusional boast?   Absolutely not.  Archimedes could never have imagined the pulleys and levers of divine destiny!  He took a stand and you must take a stand.  You must take your position in the heavenlies.

You are declaring that you are happening to the end times when you do these things:

1. Become catalytic.  A catalyst is any substance that causes or speeds up a chemical reaction without itself being changed or consumed. The hellish events of today cannot change you or consume you.

Now take a look at God.  He gives special grace for these last days.  Grace is not just favor.  It is not just forgiveness.  It is the combined power of the resurrection and the righteousness of Jesus Himself.

We hear Daniel 11:32 “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”  We hear that verse quoted quite often but we may be failing to see the real good news in that promise and its direct bearing on what you are going through right now.

Because you know God you are protected from the corruption of this time.  Because you know God you will be stronger than these times.   Because you know God you will not merely survive these times, you will exploit them.

2.  Declare God’s power over your physical health.  He will restore your energy, He will oversee your immune system.  He will guard your heart so that your resistance to disease will be awesome.  Obamacare cannot begin to match the benefits of what Christ offers you now.

Psalm103:1 Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: 3 Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases, 4 Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, 5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Isaiah 40: 31 But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.

James 5:14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

You do not have to dread long lines at an emergency room when you claim Christ as your doctor and the guardian of your health!

3. Supernatural emotions will remove your fear of bad news, headlines and threats.

It is time for the people who quote, “Greater is He who is in me than he that is in the world, to also confess “greater is He who is in me than what is happening in the world.”

Psalm 112:7-8 “He will not be afraid of evil tidings; His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.”

God wants to give us supernatural emotions.  Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.”

John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

God wants you to walk in the knowledge of His supernatural protection.  John 17:15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.

Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

The Lord God Almighty wants to be your supernatural provider and protector.

The NSA has been spying on Americans.  This has many believers up in arms.   Consider this: Satan already knew everything about you: Social Security Number, cell phone, driver’s license, and bank account numbers and your home address and because of Jesus’ prayer the devil is helpless to use it against you.  You are protected!

You are here for a big reason.  You are not the victim you are the victor. Here is a before and after snapshot for you in these two final verses:

Judges 6:13Gideon said to Him, “O my lord, if the Lord is with us, why then has all this happened to us?  This a man before his transformation and life is happening to him.

Romans 8: 31 “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” This is Paul asking the church a question about reacting to life when you know that God is for you.

So now I am asking you the question: What shall we say to these terrible, evil, stressful things?  We shall say: THE END TIMES ARE NOT HAPPENING TO ME. I AM HAPPENING TO THE END TIMES!

END TIME VALUES

END TIME VALUES

By David Wilkerson

God is doing a secret work in our day. He is raising up a hungry people who are growing more and more dissatisfied with the fleshly, worldly system as it now exists — even in the church.

These God-hungry people are saying among themselves, “This is not it. There is something more. The bigness and the sensationalism of it all has left us empty and dry. We want more. More than entertainment. More than big, showy buildings. More than a shallow celebrity gospel. We want deeper values. We want to see Jesus. We want spotless robes of righteousness. We want to go back to doing things in total dependence on God.”

I see it all over the nation today — disillusioned Christians searching for reality. The people in the pew are beginning to fast and pray. They are the ones who now weep between the porch and the altar. And, they are crying out for more depth and more of eternal values from the pulpit. If the minister of their church goes on in some egocentric way, pursuing expensive dreams, they will go out looking for a place where their deepest spiritual needs will be met.

I know it to be a fact that numerous ministers share my own desperate hunger for a deeper work of God in the church and ministry today. There seems to be a secret underground network of men of God who are stripping themselves down, humbling themselves, and getting back into the secret closet of prayer. Recently I have met a number of ministers, of various denominations, who are praying up to 6 and 8 hours a day. They are fasting. Some of these dear men of God grieve over conditions in the church today. God is revealing to all praying people that a glorious new work of the Spirit is about to break forth. God is going to shake everything that can be shaken. He will tear down the old political, backslidden, ecclesiastical system. He will disown the formal, super-church structure. He will chase out of His presence all who are engaging in self-promoting ministries.

Be honest, saints of God. Are you really satisfied with the religious system today, and especially in your church? Some are. But most are not getting their needs met. I believe we have gotten off the track of true spirituality. The spiritual leanness of so many Christians today is a direct result of getting into the flesh — trying to do kingdom work in our own power, with worldly methods. Our values are becoming perverted.

Shame on us! We are substituting temporal values for eternal ones. We have evangelists and teachers who specialize in telling believers how much God owes them. Material blessings are magnified, spiritual ones minimized. According to some, it is our right to be rich, successful, and immune to all pain.

These teachers point to themselves as examples of prosperity. “Look at me,” it is said, “I have proved the promises. I live well. I am never sick — I have no unpaid bills. I drive the best cars. I live in the finest home. It works for me, so believe as I do and you can have what I have.”

Eyes As a Flame of Fire

Beloved, how much of that teaching will stand up before the judgment seat of Christ? There is a growing inner knowledge in me that most of our modern, self-centered teaching is going to be consumed before the flaming eyes of the Son of God.

John, in his vision of the Son of God, saw an awesome sight.

“…his head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire…” (Rev. 1:14).

John goes on to say,

“…I fell at his feet as dead…” (v.17).

Will any of us, as teachers and evangelists, be able to stand before those piercing eyes of flaming fire? Can any Christian look Him in the eyes? No ego can withstand His gaze. No self-centered dreams can go unexposed. All secret sin will be exposed as a terrible abomination in His sight.

All the things we have accumulated will burn. All the great works we have done for Him, with such zeal and sweat, will they also burn?

How important is what you are doing to God’s kingdom? God can give you the desire of your heart, but send leanness to your soul. God assisted Israel in their desire to have a king. But He later disciplined them for their selfish motives.

Are you in some kind of competitive race? Are you doing things for God just to keep up with others? In eternity, looking back — how really necessary will it all be then?

Children of God, what is the good of what you and I are doing? Do we have motives based on eternal values? If we truly believe the end of all things is upon us, what should we be doing about purging our values? What is it going to take to wake us up and get us out of the drift toward ease and comfort?

I confess to you that it has taken years for me to live only for eternal values. I grieve when I think back of the time and money I wasted trying to build something tangible for God. I wanted something people could see. How important I thought those buildings were to God’s kingdom. I convinced myself, “God deserves the best.” He does-but not in bricks, mortar, and steel. He deserves the best of our time and yieldedness. Thank God for the day the Spirit revealed to me how shallow my values were! I spent 20 years planning programs, building buildings, running all over the world trying to show God how important to His kingdom I was. All the while my reputation grew as a minister of faith and vision. Yet, after each new project, I felt a letdown. No sooner was one building finished, and I was already planning another. I was an idea-man for God. I had more ideas than any preacher in America. Ideas on how to evangelize. How to organize New Testament programs. The programs and ideas were successful enough to entrap me and keep me on the treadmill of busy-ness.

But all along my heart yearned for more. I knew the blessing was not in building. Not in some well-planned scheme to reach the lost. Not in bigness, and not in activity. I discovered the hard way, that the glory of God, the peace and joy of the Spirit, was in being stripped down, emptied, and made totally weak. God had to expose all my values. He turned His flaming eyes on my soul and showed me I had better reject my old way of doing things, or be lost in a maze of self-imposed activity.

Now, my greatest joy is waiting upon Him for direction. I have made time to be alone with Him, and have prepared my soul to abide in His quiet presence. He is letting me sense what the Spirit is saying to this generation. The more He empties me, the more He fills me with a desire to depend only on Him for everything. I see now that all along the Lord was waiting for me to lay down all my plans, all my ambitions, and be given over to Him as a bondslave. The sweat is now gone – the pressure is off. He is recreating all my values.

The Final Shaking

What will happen when God begins to shake everything that can be shaken? When all false values tumble and earthly dreams and plans lose their meaning?

Sadly, many of God’s children are going to end up bewildered and confused. As the world moves into the era of economic collapse – when persecution falls even upon civilized nations – when governments are convulsing and tottering on the brink of total collapse — how many Christians will survive the test?

A lot of God’s people are going to wonder where they are. Ministers who are caught up in the trap of human vision will leave the ministry confused, all their work to no avail. Multitudes will be asking, “What’s it all about? What’s happening? What does the future hold? Where are we? Who can tell us the mind of God?”

We are now moving swiftly into what we know as the end time. We had better be in possession of a heavenly vision of holiness and humility. The testing time is coming down upon us with lightning speed. It is going to take more than a doctrine or a particular teaching to see us through. We are going to have to really know the Lord in His fullness. We had better have our eyes on eternal values. Only spiritual things are going to remain. Only spiritual people will understand what is happening and not faint. We must be linked up with the mind of the Spirit so we will not be thrown by the radical changes that are coming. We must bring ourselves, to the place we have nothing to lose. We need to walk away from all the junk in our lives — we are going to lose it all anyhow.

How much of God do you possess in this final hour of disintegration and fear? How earthly are you? How transitory are your desires? Have your values been sifted and purged by the Spirit of almighty God? How much of the world interests you — how much time is consumed in chasing after things that don’t matter now?

End-Time Restlessness

You will know when the Spirit is calling you out of the shallow Christianity about you. You will know when the Lord is wanting to touch you in a supernatural way. You will know when He is calling you out of the ordinary. He will stir your nest. An unexplainable divine restlessness will come upon you. You will become disinterested in what you have been doing. All your successes will leave you feeling empty and unfulfilled. Nothing that you have or do will meet the need in you for reality. You will sense that a very deep need in you has not yet been met — questions that have never been answered. A shadow of dissatisfaction will be cast over your entire life.

That is a mark of God’s dealing with you in a supernatural way, trying to get you to turn loose of all that you hold dear. It is His way of showing you that your needs are really spiritual and not physical.

You will feel His magnetic pull back to prayer — back to spiritual hunger, to broken-ness and self-emptying. Soon, you will be touching those satisfying eternal values and your soul will cry out, “This is what I’ve been wanting all along. He has taken away the earthly and replaced it with the spiritual.”

Saints, the key word is hunger. He has promised to fill the hungry heart. I have never been so hungry for God. That hunger almost overwhelms me at times. Every waking hour my heart reaches out to Him. Because His thoughts are always on my mind, the things of the world have lost their value. I see things as Paul did — nothing but the dung of this world. I am becoming a nobody — it feels so good.

Do you also sense this call to a deeper walk with God? Is your soul hungry for more of the Spirit in your life? If so, end the civil war in you — by yielding everything you have to the Master. The misery goes the very moment you surrender all to Him. You can know true peace and happiness the moment you quit trying to be somebody. Want nothing but Jesus, and your life will take on a new meaning.

Don’t Waste Another Hour

My greatest grief is that it took so long for me to get out of God’s way. I wasted years doing things simply out of compassion. I was spiritually blind, not knowing that God must clearly direct every step I take. I had an international pulpit — preaching to thousands — with crowded altars. Thank God He showed me there was much more. The numbers and the crowds meant nothing. I wanted to see people get deeper into the Lord. I wanted nothing more to do with shallow decisions. God had to totally change my way of thinking, and now, like Gideon, I know that big is not always best.

Don’t let it happen to you. Take stock of your life and values. Shut yourself up with God alone in the secret closet. Pray diligently for spiritual hunger. Ask God to give you a spirit of sorrow for wasting so much time. Pray for a greater desire for His Word. Pray for a broken heart. Pray for a purging and a purifying work in your life. Then get ready to be cast into the fire of testing.

“…I will purge the sons of Levi…” (Mal. 3:3)

I can tell you it’s worth it! The purging will not seem joyous, but rather grievous. But you will soon glorify the Lord for the results in your life. All the anxiety will be gone. All worldly ambition will die. Your spiritual eyes will be opened to truth. The Spirit will give you revelation knowledge. You will exchange the riches of this world for the true riches of Christ Jesus. You will wake up each morning with an over-flowing joy. Your soul will cry out “I found what my soul has been longing for. Rest — beautiful rest in my Lord.”

You can then say with David, the Psalmist — “In his presence is there is fullness of joy; at his right hand there are pleasures forevermore…” (Ps.16:11).

Proof Scriptures

“…for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ So then everyone of us shall give an account of himself to God…”(Rom. 14:10-12).

“…The end of all things is at hand; be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer…” (I Pet. 4:7).

“… The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light…” (Rom. 13:12).

“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build, upon this foundation gold stones, wood, hay, stubble; every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire…” (I Cor. 3: 11-15).

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.”

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.

hillary vicious

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.

WHEN PASTORS TRADE FLEETING GLORY FOR TRUE RICHES

WHEN PASTORS TRADE FLEETING GLORY FOR TRUE RICHES

By Mario Murillo

“For over a thousand years Roman conquerors returning from the wars enjoyed the honor of triumph, a tumultuous parade. The conqueror rode in a triumphal chariot, the dazed prisoners walking in chains before him. And a slave stood behind the conqueror holding a golden crown and whispering in his ear a warning: that all glory is fleeting.”      -Epilogue from the movie Patton.

If only we could hire that slave to stand in the pulpits beside celebrity pastors and whisper, “The glory of a big, powerless church is fleeting. It is vanity to win first prize for fastest growing church and lose a nation in the process.”

While churches tickle the ears of the crowd, our government grinds away at freedom of speech and freedom of religion.  Talk about fleeting glory…what will you do with your mega ministry when it is banned?

The miracle in Yuba City happened because two churches, realizing the utter urgency of a moral awakening in this hour, joined forces.  That is the simple truth!

Yuba 14

The Bridge of Yuba City led by Jim and Kristine Carpenter and Church of Glad Tidings led by Dave and Cheryl Bryan rejected conventional wisdom and acted according to the Kingdom of God.

Have you ever heard of two churches cancelling their Sunday Morning services in order to make a public stand for Christ?  That kind of unselfish love breaks the power of Satan over a region.  However, today, it is roundly rejected as foolishness.

When Pastors Dave and Cheryl Bryan chose to do this, it was a major sacrifice. It takes every last drop of faith to keep a church strong in the Yuba City/Marysville area. They did not make this decision because it was convenient or even practical.  It was a sacrifice based on a passion for God to heal our land.

When Jim and Kristine Carpenter turned their church into an army of workers for Living Proof, there was not a thought toward gaining new members.  They wanted to take new ground for the Kingdom of God.

Let me open my heart wide on the subject of true pastors.  A true pastor pours blood, sweat and tears into a work for God.   Today an honest work for the Lord is often battered, broken and diminished.

Local government diminishes them. The community leaders tell them that schools are off limits.  They want to know your stand on gay marriage.  They hint that you will be penalized for your stand.  Suddenly use permits are hard to get and neighborhoods want you to stay away.

Then, like adding salt to a wound, it stings a true man and woman of God to see large crowds and big money pour effortlessly into religious businesses that hide the Gospel.

It breaks the heart of a true pastor to watch sheep drawn away into a spiritual country club that dumbs down believers and condones immorality.

A vessel of God can feel punished for keeping their integrity.  King David said, “Surely I have cleansed my heart in vain, And washed my hands in innocence. For all day long I have been plagued, and chastened every morning.” Psalm 73:13, 14.

YUba 8

The crowds and the signs and wonders appearing in Yuba City are Living Proof that you get true riches when you hold on to your integrity.

There is one amazing thing that is about to happen.  Pastors will soon see that by seeking to please God rather than man they will gain a massive army that is low maintenance and high impact.

One day God asked Solomon what he wanted.  Solomon asked for wisdom instead of wealth and power.  1 Kings 1:10, “The speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing. 11 Then God said to him: ‘Because you have asked this thing, and have not asked long life for yourself, nor have asked riches for yourself, nor have asked the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern justice, 12 behold, I have done according to your words; see, I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so that there has not been anyone like you before you, nor shall any like you arise after you. 13 And I have also given you what you have not asked: both riches and honor, so that there shall not be anyone like you among the kings all your days. 14 So if you walk in My ways, to keep My statutes and My commandments, as your father David walked, then I will lengthen your days.’”

Pastors Dave and Cheryl Bryan and Jim and Kristine Carpenter have asked for true riches, not fleeting glory.  And God is going to give them everything else besides.

THE PEOPLE WHO WALKED IN DARKNESS HAVE SEEN A GREAT LIGHT

Yuba blog 1

News flash!

This morning at 10 AM something is happening that never happens…churches are coming together for a community wide miracle service.  But that is not all…because of the historic harvest we are adding one more service tonight at 7 PM…and even that is not all…we are laying plans today to extend Living Proof beyond today.  Stay posted for updates later today!

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light.

By Mario Murillo

The city that leads California in so many categories of misery is seeing a great light.  Living Proof was just the name of an outreach until God jumped in and made it a fact to Yuba City.

Churches cancelled services to join together at the tent.  They rounded up those who needed Christ or a healing miracle.

They converged on the tent at the Fairgrounds.  Yuba City Mayor John Dukes opened with a mighty prayer and introduced me to the crowd.  A mayor and an evangelist standing together to bring life to a city—think of that!

I opened my Bible and began to preach a message entitled The Grudge.

“Everything from a demonic Indian chief named Two Feathers, Gold rush greed, werewolves and witches, Anton Lavey, to a Chinese parade has been blamed for a curse on Sutter County/ Yuba County.

It is easy to believe there is a curse!  Sutter County tops the list in some terrible categories: School suspensions, child abuse.   Yuba City had the worst school bus accident. Marysville had the worst serial killer.  This county boasts the first major school shooting in America. 

 This is not a curse, it is a grudge.   Satan has a grudge against Sutter County.  Grudge definition: a persistent feeling of ill will or resentment resulting from a past insult or injury.

A curse is defined as a solemn utterance intended to invoke a supernatural power to inflict harm or punishment on someone or something.

What is the grudge that Satan bears against Sutter and Yuba Counties? Satan wants your children!   He wants to rob your life at a young age. He wants youth to believe there is nothing here for them.

Jesus began His ministry in an area where there was a grudge—in Capernaum. The people of that area were looked down on.  When Israel and Judah split, Jeroboam set up a rival religion, forbidding his adherents from going to the temple. Even when the nation was united, the farther one got from Jerusalem, the harder it was to keep the temple practices, and the quicker they went astray. Thus it was an area of spiritual darkness. Their sin made it even darker. The region was infiltrated with gentiles who had come to the fertile ground during and after the exile to grow crops and engage in industry. Thus, the Jews lived alongside the gentiles, which made them second class citizens in the eyes of their Judean brothers, who saw themselves as purer because they were close to the holy city.

These were the reasons in the natural for the grudge but the real reason was that it was a land of promise.  This is where the Messiah would start His miracle ministry.

Isaiah 9:1 “Nevertheless the gloom will not be upon her who is distressed, As when at first He lightly esteemed The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, And afterward more heavily oppressed her,
By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, In Galilee of the Gentiles. 2 The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death,
Upon them a light has shined.”

When our Lord Jesus began to appear as a prophet, and to preach the gospel in the land of Zebulun and Naphtali, and in Galilee of the Gentiles this promise was fulfilled.  Satan had a grudge against their destiny.  That is why Satan has a grudge against Yuba City and Marysville.  He fears the prophecies of revival that will be fulfilled here.”

I had to stop. The people were ready to be saved. When I asked them to come to Christ the response was immediate and effortless.

The first harvest filled the front.  We had no way of knowing that each night the harvest was going to multiply. The harvest in Yuba City is a resounding slap in the face to experts who say American Youth want nothing to do with Christianity. 

In this tent cliches die and pundits are proven wrong. Modern humanity is not different than the crowds that were by the shores of Galilee.   Seeing the miracles cut them to the heart.  People of all ages pour forward to be saved.

Many scoffed at the idea that we would prove God was real.  God was not intimidated.  He enveloped me in His anointing and directed me to a young man on my right.  My orders were to tell him the following: “You have suffered a devastating loss.  It shattered your faith in God.  It made you physically ill and has placed a dark cloud over your life.”  The young man broke before God and received his miracle.  This young man had been in a terrible accident that killed his girlfriend.

Friday night! The temperature at 7 PM is 106 degrees and we are in a tent. So many thought that the scorching heat would kill our attendance and instead it is the biggest night and the greatest harvest.

What healings have been reported so far?  You name it.  Cancer, diabetes, emphysema, and a host of life threatening diseases have vanished before the mighty hand of God. Stay tuned for more!

Why you should come to these nights

Why you  should come to these nights 

By Mario Murillo

Here is urgent news!  I want you to join me for 5 unforgettable nights of healing miracles.  Let me explain more.

My experience with the power of Christ to heal began in the most unlikely place and at the most unpromising time.   This was not a backwater encounter among the uneducated.   It was in the light of day on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley during the free speech movement.

Jesus himself said, “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.   Those words haunted me and challenged me to answer one of the greatest questions I would ever ask myself:  How do I reach this campus?

What happened to me next did not just breakthrough on campus, but it ended up taking me around the world declaring the greatest news that mankind has ever heard.  There is not enough room here to give you a detailed account of how the healings began.

What matters right now is that you can receive healing and you can satisfy your soul about the reality of God.

I am not asking you to embrace dead religion or a cult.  Reality does not need hype or manipulation.  I am asking you to trade just one night of your life to open your heart to God and let Him give you a miracle inside and out.

 Not only will Living Proof amaze and liberate you but it will be the best thing possible for someone you care about who battling not just sickness but life itself.  Bring someone to this night!  Why not? If someone you love is suffering for any reason, bring them and let us pray for them to receive a miracle.  Think of all that they have endured to try to get well.  Instead of waiting for hours in a cold atmosphere let them experience a loving, joyous, faith-filled atmosphere.

If someone you know is unchurched and is honestly seeking to know that God is real, bring them.  My message each night will not just touch the needs of the body but also of the soul.  This is a perfect opportunity for them to receive a miracle in their soul.

You should come if you are a Christian who yearns for revival in Northern California.  The impact of these nights will not end with just healing miracles.  An army of love and light is forming from many churches in this region who are seeking an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  It is our deepest wish and expectation that the power of this night will flow out to the entire North Valley area.

IT ALL ADDS UP TO A SIMPLE FACT:  THESE ARE NIGHTS YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS AND YOU WILL BE THANKFUL FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE THAT YOU MADE THE EFFORT TO EXPERIENCE.

The Bruce Gender: How this wild acceptance of mentally ill behavior confirms Christianity.

The Bruce Gender:  How this wild acceptance of mentally ill behavior confirms Christianity.

By Mario Murillo

A well known blogger said, “The former top psychiatrist at John’s Hopkins, Dr. Chapman, penned a Wall Street journal article several months ago, making it clear that “transgenders” are mentally disordered. Boldly affirming the indisputable findings of every credible biologist who’s ever existed, Dr. Chapman reported that sex change is biologically impossible, and to tell a transgender he can be “reassigned” or “transitioned” from one gender to the other is to “promote and collaborate with mental illness.

As the doctor points out, “transgenders” have a suicide rate 20 times higher than the general population —after surgery.”

There is no version of Bruce becoming Katlin where he is either heroic or a role model.  In the quiet recesses of your common sense, you know that.   (I will use quotes from authors whom I will not name in order to protect them from the Nazism of the present media.   (Pardon their unusually graphic nature.)

“On Friday night, a mentally ill cross-dresser named Bruce Jenner was interviewed for two hours during prime time about his plan to gruesomely mutilate his genitals in a macabre pseudo-medical ritual often erroneously described as a ‘sex change.’ He concluded that the next best course of action is to castrate himself and live the rest of his life pretending to be a girl. He’s already undergone extensive cosmetic surgery, including shaving down his trachea (which is a thing that doctors will actually do, apparently) in pursuit of some perverse, bastardized notion of synthetic femininity.”

And if we are going to celebrate this illness, why not celebrate Apotemnophilia?  “Apotemnophilia is a fetish in which people wish to become an amputee. They find sexual satisfaction and ultimately, happiness, through the act of the removal of limbs or simulating the removal of limbs. There are websites, message boards and get-togethers devoted exclusively to the activity. As a general rule, society doesn’t consider this to be healthful. Some of us may accept it, ignore it and move on with our lives, but we don’t praise it or trot apotemnopheliacs out as heroes. And let’s be honest… most of us think it’s pretty d___ weird.”

“Now, change that limb to the male organ. If you don’t accept it, even worse, if you don’t praise it, you’re deemed hateful. The politically correct lobbyists of the day will take great care in avoiding the staggeringly high suicide rate of transgenders, they will ignore the medical reality that sex change operations and hormone replacement therapies come with a litany of very serious health problems, heck, they’ll ignore overall science.”

“Bruce Jenner is not a hero.  A hero is someone who has done something brave or noble, who has sacrificed for others.  Bruce Jenner has done none of these things.  He is a man who has posed in women’s clothing on the cover of a magazine, garnering excessive media attention.  What’s more he has waited to do so until the optimum moment when he was most sure to receive praise and acceptance.  Heroes risk much and gain little.  Bruce Jenner has risked little and gained much.”

The celebration of Bruce Jenner has nothing to do with reality, morality, courage, honesty or love. It is driven by a force that the Bible said would dominate mankind.  Ignoring science, bending reality, calling all who disagree “hateful” is the spirit of this time.  But it also confirms Christianity.   With more vivid detail than any other book, the Bible said there would be days like these.

1. The Bible predicted that people would do harm to their own bodies based on fantasies. Jude 1: 8 “In the very same way, on the strength of their dreams these ungodly people pollute their own bodies, reject authority and heap abuse on celestial beings.”

2. The Bible predicted that many who were Christian would lose their faith and join the charge of immorality and perversion. It would become nearly impossible to tell the natural from the unnatural and truth from falsehood.

Bruce 3

“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.” – 2 Thessalonians 2:3-7

3. The Bible predicted that the love of money would become all consuming, leading to hatred of God, blind ambition and violence. “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.” -2 Timothy 3:1-4

Bruce Jenner is doing this for money; the networks and magazines are celebrating him for money.  As another author said, “It’s worth noting, too, that it doesn’t generally require ‘courage’ or ‘bravery’ or ‘strength’ to do something that is sure to result in television deals and roaring applause from a sea of adoring fans. Usually, courage is not defined as ‘the willingness to endure immense popularity, esteem, fame, and profit.’”   All that Bruce Jenner is doing is what he has always done; he is keeping up with the Kardashians.   We just never imagined how far someone would go for money, but the Bible did.

Bruce 4

Not to mention the doctors who perform procedures that of those who want limbs removed.  It is only about money?  What of ESPN?  Will they give Bruce/Kaitlin the Arthur Ashe Courage Award for courage or for ratings?

The Bible is issuing a solemn warning: “And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, ‘Be saved from this perverse generation.’” -Acts 2:40    Peter said that on the day of Pentecost and it is truer now than ever.   Turning mutilation into a miracle is just the beginning of the dark days ahead for those who do not heed the warning.

You can still get out of all the addiction, perversion and the pain.  The promise of a new, free life is greater than ever because the Bible says, “Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.” – Romans 5:20. That is my prayer for Bruce Jenner.  As one author said, “He is not a hero and he is not a woman.  He is what we all are: lost, sinful, and desperately in need of Jesus. I pray he finds Him.”

A Christian Convention for these dark times

A Christian Convention for these dark times

By Mario Murillo

The odds are that this year you will attend a seminar, a conference or a convention. The question is why are you going?  Is it to receive power, guidance, vital information, or to fellowship with friends and people of like mind?

The times we are living in demand something much deeper.  We are facing a threat to our freedoms, our loved ones, our ministries and our souls like never before. We are at a spiritual point of no return.

You do not have time to sit in sessions that do not deal with your actual life. You seek a new level in God.  You want something that lasts, something that addresses this dark time.

Recently, someone asked me why the early Pentecostal movement spread so fast.  I found that question to be profound and insightful.  The asker was assuming that its growth had slowed down.  And he is correct.  For example, under Reinhardt Bonke, Nigeria became Pentecostal but today it is drowning in radical Islam.

I fear that one reason for this reversal is that the lukewarm mutation created by American Christians spread to the rest of the world.

Spirit-filled Christianity here at home, even as recently as the 1990’s, was focused on winning souls and living pure lives.  Since then, sadly, North American Christians have come to fulfill 2 Timothy 3:5 “having a form of godliness but denying its power.”

Spirit-filled preachers leave out vital doctrines from their sermons and caved in on moral issues such as same-sex marriage and abortion. The occasional mega church does not change the fact that we are losing the battle to our culture and that is the only thing that matters.

Others leaders go to the opposite extreme delving into exotic emotional binges.

Many lament the fact that our movement has polarized into both the frozen and the freaky.  We now have to choose between churches with either no fire or strange fire.

The answer to our early movement spread because it was real.  The fire of God was real.  The miracles were real.  By trying to “improve the Gospel” we made it unreal.  By taking self out of the Gospel preachers can again have great power.

Back to my original point: The odds are that this year you will attend a seminar, a conference or a convention. The question is why are you going?

I am asking you to join me in the mountains receive fresh fire, clear direction and LIVING PROOF

Before you give up and quit listen to this

final world convention facebook shot

The church in America has been struck by an iceberg.  Over one thousand preachers a month are leaving the ministry defeated by the open hostility of our culture and the draining effect of lukewarm believers.  We cannot go on this way.  There must be an answer.

What if we had a convention designed to confront the threat against the American Church?  What if we had a convention that brushed aside all of the frills and distractions and instead focused on receiving power and fresh direction?

The American Church will not be turned around by supermen but by supernatural men. We do not need better equipment, new organizations, novel methods, but vessels that the Holy Ghost can use—vessels who pray with prevailing might.  God does not flow through religious machinery but through human beings, he does not anoint plans, but people—people of prayer.

It is our conviction that there is a life available, set apart in prayer that only goes out to serve at the direct command of God.  That life can accomplish truly mighty things, things mighty enough to change the course of America.

Do not sit back and watch dark clouds gather.  Sweep away the cobwebs, underbrush and weeds of despair and take action!  It is high time for you to operate in gifts of power.

This prayer of Peter embodies this convention:  Acts 4: 29  Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” 31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.

As important as the day of Pentecost was to the Book of Acts Church, the outpouring that happened two chapters later was equally crucial.  Pentecost proved that God could pour out His Spirit on the Earth.  The miracle in Acts 4 proved God could do it again.

Join us in the mountains with the firm conviction that God can and will do it again.
