TAKING OUT THE TRASH

This is a deeply frustrating moment for me. The Reason? It is because I see two forces in the process of colliding. One is wonderful beyond words, and the other is inexplicably tragic.

The American church is being handed the opportunity of a lifetime, but she has not seized it. Right now, a great number of Americans want to be born again. I have never seen so many—not even during the Jesus Movement.

I know what the media wants you to believe about Americans. They want you to believe that the message of the Gospel is grossly unpopular—but that is a lie! And the paradox is that the only way to prove that it is a lie, is by shaking the church out of the very tragedy I am trying to explain.

What is holding us back? It seems we are drained from taking out the trash. What in the world do I mean by that?

Nehemiah 4:10, “Then Judah said, ‘The strength of the laborers is failing, and there is so much rubbish that we are not able to build the wall.’”

Think of that! One of the most glorious and urgent projects in history was held up for the strangest of reasons.  Nehemiah’s workers faced ridicule from their enemies. They faced terrorism from surrounding tribes. But it was taking out the garbage and removing all the rubble from the past that sapped their will to build.

Do you realize what Democrat leaders have done? They have made Americans utterly miserable. Even Biden’s avid fans (if there are any) are in agony because of his leadership. Democrat Governors like Newsom and Cuomo are being assailed for destroying lives. Millions are groping in darkness, in a despair that has been created by the Democrat Party, which is why they are ripe for the Gospel.

That is why our tent overflows with unchurched people who are yearning for the preaching of the Word of God. They want to know Jesus.

Here is what I mean by the American church taking out the trash. You have been sidetracked into taking out the garbage if you are attacking prophets who predicted a Trump victory, and cannot let it go to win souls. You are taking out the garbage if you are attacking those who attack the prophets, if it has caused you to have stopped winning souls. You are taking out the trash if you attack Trump supporters continually, so that you cannot win souls. You are taking out the trash if you are speculating about conspiracy theories, and have nothing left over for lost souls. You are taking out the garbage if you are a prophet and are over-apologizing, instead of winning the lost.

God wants the American church to rebuild our message to America about Christ. What is slowing us down is all of the trash we keep carrying out.

Let me make some things very clear. I believe that the Democrat Party agenda is anti-Christian and destructive to America. I will keep writing and exposing that. I believe that the election was stolen and I am prepared to fight, in blogs and in pulpits, for that to be exposed. I believe in, and stand with Donald Trump’s destiny in our nation. I still expect a Trump miracle.

But I believe God is calling for us to counterbalance the fixation to use social media to analyze, divide, constantly speculate, debate, and attack, by being the miracles we are, in God’s hand. And yes, we should speak loudly against political evil, when God orders it, but not at the expense of winning the lost.

Anything that would keep us from seizing the greatest harvest in our lifetime is of Satan, no matter how compelling it seems.

To the everyday believer I say, relive and rewrite your testimony, because friends, family, neighbors and acquaintances are open to your witness. Believe me, the misery Democrats have created transcends politics. Even those who may disagree with you about Trump will be open to prayer and to your witness.

To pastors I say, reopen your church now!  Prepare Gospel sermons. Give altar calls. You will find that outsiders are returning to church. A vast blanket of conviction has settled on our weary nation.

To all I say this: Mario Murillo Ministries is about to launch the largest and deepest soul winning campaigns we have ever done—and I believe they will also be the greatest California has seen in decades.

Yes, there will always be trash that should be taken out. I will blog against false doctrine. I will blog against the lie that the church should stay out of politics. I will continue to tell the truth as God gives me strength. But something has come that I cannot neglect . Millions are ready to surrender to Jesus.

Matthew 9:36-38, “But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore, pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.””

A special message to Pastors in California—especially those in the Central Valley.  Please join me for a strategic luncheon on Thursday March 4th at noon. We will March Forth on March the 4th! The lunch is in the main sanctuary of CWC LIFE. CWC LIFE is located at 786 Button Ave Manteca CA  95336

I will be bringing a message that the Holy Spirit is burning in my heart. I believe that God is calling us to take back California in a true awakening of repentance, soul winning, signs, wonders and an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. I am convinced that God wants to lead us into multiple victories in our cities and local churches.

I will also be announcing our next tent crusade on Highway 99. I have never been this excited about a luncheon in my life! It is free but you must register. Please use the link to register and print out your ticket. Do it right away so you will not be disappointed. See you there!

I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT PRAYING FOR THE ANOINTING TO SHAKE AMERICA.

I’d like to talk about prayer. People make two statements. One is, “I have a prayer life.” And there is what the saints of old said, the world changers: “I have a life of prayer.”

The person who has a prayer life designates a certain part of their busy day to go and pray. A person with a life of prayer, designates a portion of their busy time of prayer to do life…

When Paul said, “Pray without ceasing” I am certain he understood that we had to sleep at night,  that we had to have jobs. What he was talking about is that we must get to the point where life is interrupting our prayer time, and NOT that our prayer time is interrupting our life. Meaning, I am in an attitude and state of prayer, all the time.

No matter how much I can plan, sometimes a jet is late. Sometimes a flight will be cancelled, and I arrive at the church where I am to preach, only moments before I am supposed to preach. I can’t rely on an afternoon where I was alone with God. What I rely on is the fact that I never broke that communion at all. Just as Paul told Timothy, “Be instant in season and out of season.”

That is what needs to happen. We need to rediscover prayer to the point where, I think, “I don’t want to leave this room to go do life, because I’m not ready yet.

That’s what Martin Luther said. He said, “I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.” https://www.goodreads.com/author/quotes/29874.Martin_Luther

As much as I love my brothers and sisters in the Lord, and I certainly don’t want to sound like I am anti-pastor. I’m not. I think there are a handful of men and women that have been real traitors, but by in large, the pulpits in America are God-fearing, sacrificing men and women who love their people and would do anything for them.

Men and women who didn’t buy into the big screens, skinny jeans and fog machine version. And they paid a desperate price for it. Some of them have lost church members. But I have a word of encouragement for them: It is going to turn, because America’s appetite is turning. And the person who is in search of a good cup of coffee and a 12-minute sermon with valet parking, is a dinosaur.

They are going to be replaced by, “I don’t need coffee because I’m wide awake. I don’t care how long you preach, Pastor, because you are turning me from a confused person, into a soldier, fit for war. Pastor you are making me armed and dangerous, to fight for my community, and against the works of the devil.

The appetite is changing. So, I would tell every Pastor, hold on just a little longer. Don’t compromise the blood, the cross, the second coming of Christ. Don’t sacrifice the baptism in the Holy Spirit or signs, wonders and miracles done according to the Spirit of God. And most of all, preach holiness, “without which, no one will see God” (Hebrews 12:14).

God has placed a tremendous burden on me for this hour, to speak what He says, when I hear it.

Scientists discovered, some years ago, that the electricity that runs through your house is far more powerful than we ever imagined. An electric current, at a certain temperature, far below zero, begins to superconduct. This means that at room temperature there is a drag on electric current.

Now, if you use that as an analogy for the anointing: when a vessel of God dies to self, they remove the drag that is on the anointing. When we witness in history a woman like Kathryn Kuhlman, or a man like Oral Roberts, healing evangelists, we wonder why they operated on such a seemingly different plane of power than others. The secret is that they learned to superconduct, and not allow the anointing to be dragged by anything. They had no axe to grind in the pulpit, a personal viewpoint, a hidden agenda to make money, or to be famous. They simply wanted to please the Holy Spirit. And, in that obsession, they superconducted and the anointing flowed freely.

That is also my obsession. When I get in the tent and I begin to preach to lost souls, and I hear that a parent brought a child who is dying of leukemia, or that a man with children has had multiple heart attacks and maybe won’t live through the next few months, and, instead of relying solely on doctors, they come to my tent. That places an awesome responsibility on me. Not to believe that I can heal them, but to believe that I can get out of God’s way.

When I wrote the book, VESSELS OF FIRE AND GLORY, at a certain part of the book I felt a certain grief. I grieved over the Holy Spirit. Because the Bible says, “Do not quench the Spirit. Do not grieve the Spirit. And that word grieve means, don’t hurt Him. We have broken His heart. I began to see how He was insulted, marginalized, misrepresented and reduced to some New Age ‘force.’ This member of the Godhead, the Holy Spirit was wounded and hurt by our behavior. Because Jesus emphatically stated that it is to our advantage that I leave. It is for our sake I must go away, because otherwise the Helper cannot come. And we have rejected that help. We thought we knew how to preach better.

Billy Graham said that it amazed him how the preaching of the simple Gospel, and the truth of it, that the Spirit of God would drive it into the hearts of men everywhere he went. We have got to let the Holy Spirit take over again. He knows how to handle the virus. He knows how to handle the government. He knows what we ought to be saying.

When I began writing my blog, and writing this book, and speaking out, I said, “Lord, You can’t anoint me to do that! You can anoint me to do ministry, and He is, but why?” The answer was found in 1 Samuel 10:6, “Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you mightily, and you will show yourself to be a prophet with them; and you will be turned into another man. And when these signs meet you, do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.”

The kind of things I am saying in this hour would have been inappropriate, even ten years ago. But this is what the occasion demands. And that is why, Pastor! Let the anointing have its way. Begin to speak the message that may not be the line of your denomination. It may not be the tradition that you are used to. It is from the word of God, but it is a focus on exposing the evil of the swamp and the power of God to overcome that evil, and bring America back to God.

I want to pray for every Christian that loves America. Do you love this country – the home of the brave, the land of the free? The land of opportunity created and forged out of a wilderness by a miracle from God. We can’t lose it. We can’t lose this gift. And the stupidest reason ever to cripple our children with socialism, would be because they were too afraid that they couldn’t succeed without the government being their nursemaid.

God, I pray for an awakening. I pray an anointing for common house cats will turn back into lions. I pray that a fire will be ignited in the heart of everyone listening. Those who have been called by You to preach your Gospel in a pulpit, as a Pastor, help them to see their duty. Help them to understand that safety is in obedience and not in escape.

If we’re in rebellion against God, if God has told us to speak out, there will be nowhere to run and nowhere to hide, unless we obey the Lord. Jonah discovered that, when he was told to go to Nineveh, but refused, and went in the opposite direction. God, let us run toward the truth, and not away from it. Give us the courage to speak out in an hour when thieves are robbing us of our rights and our freedoms. Lord, let us be turned into a new vessel of God, and do what the occasion demands. In the Name of Jesus. Amen.

GOD HAS NOT CHANGED HIS MIND

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I AM STANDING AGAINST THE DEMONIC POWER OVER CALIFORNIA

Under our Tent in Fresno, bodies will be healed of sickness. The power of depression will be broken. We know this because it has happened, again and again. A miracle can happen to you or to someone you love.

Acts 14:3 says, “Nevertheless, they stayed there a long time, preaching boldly, and the Lord proved their message was from Him by giving them power to do great miracles.”

That verse says it all. We welcome anyone to come and to see the proof that the message of Jesus is for every soul—no matter how sick, addicted or hopeless they may feel.

Here is our message to California: In our Tent, Jesus will break the chains of sickness, addiction, and despair. In our Tent, the rules of the street die. In our Tent, you will find the Life you were born to live.

An army of prayer warriors is already locked in targeted intercession to break the power of Satan in California. Christians are in training to put boots on the ground. These prayer-covered workers will soon touch California’s most forsaken: from homeless camps to crack-houses. Everyone, from the down-and-out to the up-and-in will receive our witness.  Our workers will not bring just food and clothing—they will bring the anointing to heal and to set captives free.

While I was in the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, NC, the exhibit of Billy preaching in the Eastern Bloc countries brought me to tears. Not long after Billy preached there, Communism fell in these nations. Not only that, but it fell in the exact same order of Billy’s visits. I thought, “What an amazing miracle!”

Then I thought, “Why not such a miracle for California?” Los Angeles has a great store of the buried treasure of past revivals. From L.A. the greatest outpouring since the Book of Acts emerged, the miracle on Azusa Street. The greatest evangelists of the 20th Century have held meetings there: from Aimee McPherson to Billy Graham. There, the greatest youth revival in American history was born—the Jesus People Movement.

Highway 99 is our assignment, for a reason. Millions who live along this corridor are suffering, and their quality of life has dropped drastically because of the lockdown. But the big difference is that Central Valley families think differently, and something is stirring there!

I hear the rumble in this valley of millions who are sick to death of the whole mess. They don’t want what their kids are being taught in the schools. They don’t want drag queens reading to their children. They do not want Black Lives Matter or Antifa burning down their city. They don’t want any part of the medicated, mentally dulled elites who compose the government of California. They don’t want this disaster to continue. They yearn for hope!

You are the heart of the mass crusade we are holding in Fresno. Your prayers, support and love have taken on muscle. You will be able to feel the impact of your faith. The diseases that are oppressing many are going to be healed, because of your faith.

Can you feel the urgency of this tent crusade in Fresno?  Let God fill you with expectation and a spirit of prayer!

Let God speak to your heart! There is a place in these meetings for you. There is a miracle waiting there for you. You will see God use you in a way you have never imagined. No matter what the level of power of your gift is currently, let me tell you, it will go to a new level.  Do you fear witnessing? I assure you that an inner fire will make you as bold as a lion. Not only that, you will return rejoicing over the lives God has used you to bring to salvation. Come along, stand beside me, and become the Christian warrior you never imagined you could be.

I can’t overstate the urgency of prayer. Please, won’t you begin praying for us right now? In the coming days you will be able to volunteer to help in this historic tent crusade.

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

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

The War Chest Collection: three powerful books by Mario Murillo for only $27. This amazing offer includes free shipping and a signed copy of Vessels of Fire and Glory. The war chest is an army’s first order for victory. The doors will soon open for tent crusades and we must replenish our war chest. This is a true win-win situation. Not only will you get three excellent books for only $27 but your money will go toward winning souls.

WE ARE THE RESISTANCE

Casting social distancing to the wind, protesters march across America. Suddenly the virus is not dangerous. The very same media that screamed bloody murder when a handful of people worshipped in church, are rooting for thousands to stand shoulder to shoulder, as they riot in every major city.

Why? Because they are the resistance! They are the voices of reason and truth. They alone know what justice for George Floyd should look like. They are the newly anointed keepers of the flame. The virus can’t kill the vanguards of truth. They hold the key to America’s emergence from the dark ages.

Sadly, their movement is already falling apart. Not because the crime that catalyzed it wasn’t evil enough. The killing of George Floyd should horrify and outrage all of us. No, the problem is not their idealism, it’s the irresistible pull of human nature on the resistance—it’s the core absence of the one element that brings justice.

That is why sincere protesters will be drowned out by violent thugs who are spoiling for a fight. You will not hear the call for change above the din of smashed cars and burning buildings. The speakers will be upstaged by the looters as they pass by carrying stolen televisions.

Like so many times before, a noble venture has degenerated into mob mentality. They will scream the screams we have heard so many times before. Their bullhorns will cry out the same tired slogans. And like so many times before, their anger will not turn back the tide of wickedness in America. Their voices, like so many times before, will flicker and die.

Meanwhile, the true resistance—with the exception of a prophetic core— is asleep at the wheel. The army that holds the only answer to racial injustice—for the most part—doesn’t know who they are. They took the gold out of their message and replaced it with powerless sermons made of tin.

Had there been more of the fire of God in the church, there would be less fires in the streets. If there was more of hell preached in the pulpit, there would be less hell being lived out in the inner city. The people with the solution and something relevant to say, are apologizing instead of evangelizing. The people with the bankrupt human remedy who have nothing to say, are declaring it with conviction.

No movement that lacks authority over Satan will ever break the vicious cycle of history. The Who had it right when they sang, “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.” There will be no peace. There will be no justice, until the power of Satan is broken. The devil merely allows one regime to replace another. And soon, the new regime practices the same abuses as the old one, and so, on it goes.

 

That is, until reformation arrives through a revived church! It all begins with this realization: WE ARE THE RESISTANCE! Why? Because the Word of God says: “Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you” (James 4:7).

We carry the cure. We own the real power to bring about the end of evil. We are the resistance! On this Sunday, two thousand years ago, 120 people who didn’t know what they were destined to be, waited in an upper room. They had no inkling of the role God had saved for them. They had no seat at the table of human progress. They were not the voice proclaiming the solutions to the wicked misery of mankind.

Then something happened to change all of that! The sound of a might rushing wind. Divided tongues of fire rested on each of them. A dam burst. Languages roared out. They left the safe zone of the upper room to introduce the world to the resistance!

The outpouring of many tongues stripped the thousands who heard them of their protection against God. At the crescendo, when the crowd had been convicted to the heart, Peter stood to make the bravest declaration in history:

“THIS IS THAT WHICH WAS SPOKEN BY THE PROPHET JOEL!”

Today is the day for us to submit to God and resist the devil. Resist what Satan told the government to do to your church. Resist the cowardly Christians who assail you for doing church today. Resist your own fears and the need for “community acceptance.”

There is a greater victory to be won. There is a glorious and mighty God ready to arm His church with words, gifts of power, miracles, and authority over the devil and all of his byproducts of suicide, addiction, fear, hatred, and prejudice. Shout it from the highest mountain…we are the resistance and our mighty God is proclaiming liberty throughout the land! Preach it, vessel of God! Preach it!

“And it shall come to pass afterward
That I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.
And also, on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.

And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth:
Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.
The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.
And it shall come to pass
That whoever calls on the name of the Lord
Shall be saved.
For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem,

There shall be deliverance as the Lord has said,
Among the remnant whom the Lord calls” (Joel 2:28-32).

But, what did it mean for Joel’s words to be fulfilled? It meant that injustice, tyranny, and perversion would be challenged by the Cross. The defeat of Satan was now being enforced by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The teachings of a gentle Carpenter would soon topple the Roman Empire. A movement had arrived that would not be silent, but would resist the devil, until our Lord returns!

Vessels of Fire and Glory

Vessels of Fire and Glory is Mario’s newest book. It reached number one on Amazon among all Spirit-filled books. John Kilpatrick who led the Pensacola Revival said this after he read Vessels of Fire and Glory: “As I read the manuscript for Mario Murillo’s new book, Vessels of Fire and Glory, I said to myself, “Finally!” Mario has measured the church and the nation in this season and did not hold anything back. His honesty is like the sun rising inside a dark cave. This release is a paradox—it is sobering and refreshing; it is symptoms and the cure. I believe this revivalist has penned a treatise that should be in the hands of all who lead the work of God.”

 Edgewise

Here is a book about the end times with a totally different approach. It does not focus on how the world will end but on how to live as the curtain comes down on humanity. Powerful, practical, and encouraging.

Critical Mass

Critical Mass is the best-selling book Mario Murillo has ever written. It has been acclaimed as a classic on how to pray for, surrender to, and sustain revival. It is required reading in many colleges and training centers.

DO NOT THROW TOMORROW AWAY

Can you recall any of the superficial sermons that were preached by celebrity preachers just a few weeks ago? If so, you must realize that preaching that stuff now would come off as banal and inappropriate enough to cause you to cringe. Back then, under the influence of that type of preaching, many believed life was just a bowl of cherries, and their toughest test was wondering how long it would take God to refill the bowl. Now they are believing for toilet paper.

Those warm and fuzzy sermonettes became useless for life during a pandemic.

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

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

Many are not only done with those motivational pep talks, they have thrown the baby out with the bath water. They are turning away from their faith and trust in a loving God.

The other extreme this outbreak has led to is the number of believers who now hate the faith-prosperity message. They hate it so much that they are rooting for this virus to cause that message to become extinct. And they are every bit as dangerous as the New Age celebrity pastors.

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

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

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

GOD IS COMMANDING YOU—DO NOT THROW TOMORROW AWAY!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This crisis will go away. What will never go away is the regret of what you might have done for God if you hadn’t thrown it away. DO NOT THROW AWAY TOMORROW!

THIS IS AN HOUR FOR BOLDNESS, NOT FEAR AND TIMIDITY.

The shutdown can easily turn into an easy way to weaken and even close down churches. It is hard to convince many Christians that they are rapidly losing their First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and freedom of religion.  They either don’t believe it is happening, or they chalk it up to ‘fake news’ or ‘politics.’  But the erosion of liberty is not only real—it is the greatest threat American Christians have ever faced.

If I listed everything the church was allowed to say ten years ago that she can’t say today, you would be horrified.  Without a miracle, your children and grandchildren will have to survive in a world that will totally ban their faith—and what is even scarier: they will have to face it without you.

The doctrines of our faith that offend are: the Cross, the Blood of Jesus, the reality of Hell, sexual purity, and marriage.  Preachers who feel the heat from government censorship are already deleting these doctrines from their sermons.  They’ll tell you it’s to reach a bigger audience—but, trust me, it’s the heat.

What can we do to stop the church from being driven underground?   No one who is truly a man or woman of God can seriously entertain the idea that we should stop preaching these truths.  That is not even an option.  What then can we do to reverse this pernicious loss of liberty?

An even better question is: What does God do when a nation tries to silence His church?  The answer came to me suddenly.   Hear me out, it is not what you think.  It is way beyond petitions, or elections.  The revelation I am about to relate to you, struck me with paralyzing clarity. I am amazed I never saw it before.

However, nothing I am about to say will help you, not one point I am making will have its intended impact, unless you have a heart for it.  If you are still in denial about what is happening, I can’t help you—this message can’t help you.  If you think I am dispensing alarmist extremism, then you are just another part of the threat.

But, if you want to hear God’s heart on this crisis—if you hunger for more than half-answers, then you have come to the right place.  You can ask the Holy Spirit the most important question you could ever ask: “What do You do when a nation tries to silence Your church?”

Here it comes:

When the leaders of Jerusalem arrested Peter, they didn’t know what to charge him with or how to punish him.  They knew they had to silence the church.  There was no doubt about their intention.  They were prepared to do anything to stop the Gospel—so what was stopping them?  Answer that, and you will know what the exact marching orders are, that the church needs today.

What was hindering the council members was the glaring presence of the man who came with Peter and John.  This was the crippled beggar who used to sit at the Gate Beautiful.  A spectacular miracle had occurred!  He had occupied the most visible and lucrative begging station in Jerusalem.  Everyone knew him.  Word of his miraculous healing filled Jerusalem, and a mad chorus of praise was rising over the Eternal City.

Their deep consternation is vividly described in these verses: Acts 4:14 “And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. 15 But when they had commanded (Peter and John) to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, 16 saying, “What shall we do to these men? For, indeed, that a notable miracle has been done through them is evident to all who dwell in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it.””

Their profound dilemma was not lost on Peter.  The Holy Spirit had revealed to him the divine solution to government censorship.  Peter had clearly settled on a course of action—the very action we need to take today. It is the action we take in our tent. He left with a battle plan. He was armed with critical information.

He gathered the people of God, and ordered them to pray.  He was about to pray a prayer that is the precise model for our crisis. He faced the same threat we face.  Remember that word: “threat.”

You will recall I told you that nothing good can come to you from my message, unless you see how urgent the hour has become?  Peter began his prayer by calling the situation ‘a threat.’  We must do this, also.

In Acts chapter 4, Peter prayed: 29 “Now, Lord, look upon 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.”

Peter is showing us that boldness is essential.  Only boldness will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Not only this, he is forever settling the question of preaching.  Preaching must not leave anything out.  It is by sharing the whole counsel of God, that the church is protected, and able to continue her work.

Next, Peter is admitting that the vehicle for that boldness is signs and wonders.  God must stretch His hand over an angry culture, perform supernatural healings, and overrule the agenda of man.  Such is the case today.  Look at how God answered:

Acts 4:31 “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.”

Not only were they filled with the Holy Spirit and boldness, but God answered their prayer for miracles.  In the next chapter, the very shadow of Peter was healing the masses. (Acts 5:15-16)

 

Ignore those who aren’t willing.  Set the time and place to go to homes, houses of worship, schools, offices—anywhere where true prayer can be raised up to God.  Prove this promise and see: the Spirit will fall; you will receive a tongue of fire, and miracles will come.  I am not talking about self-absorbed emotional light touches.  I am talking about undeniable, medically verified, city-shaking divine healings.

And you will see that now, as in that day, no law, no argument, and no politician will be able to silence the church!
