LEFT-WING THUGS ARE ONLY TRYING TO BURN DOWN LEFT-WING CITIES

Portland, Oregon is a left-wing city. Far left-wing—you can’t get any ‘woker’. So, why are the thugs from Antifa and BLM attacking it? What are they demanding from Portland that they don’t already have?

Let’s review: The mayor and the Governor of Oregon have declared war on Trump. Check. The police, while not yet defunded, are certainly defanged. Check. No matter how much damage a protester does, they are bailed out almost immediately. Check.

Republicans are not allowed to speak and churches are not allowed to worship. Check. Portland has drag-queen story hours at their public libraries. They have indoctrinated children in their public schools and taught them to hate the Founding Fathers. Check. Check. And from what I can tell, there are no more statues left to topple—even statues of leftists.

They are also doing this in Seattle, which is possibly the only city further left than Portland!  Chicago, New York City, Saint Louis, Detroit, Los Angeles, Oakland, and Berkeley also sponsor free-for-alls. These riots are theater. They are exercises in futility, chaperoned by Democrat leaders.

These mayors may be ambivalent about people being killed and innocent people losing their life savings, but they are too ideologically horsewhipped to intervene. The mayor of Seattle only stopped them because they came to her house. I can only guess what they chanted at her in her home, my guess is: “You are far left, why aren’t you extreme left?!”

 

They do it because they can do it. You and I both know they wouldn’t dare do any of this in cities where the police, church, and businesses are respected and government is pro-American. (It is terribly sad that we have to qualify an American city as being “pro-American.”) They can’t shut down a city that would rise up against them.

They are like an F-Troop that marched off to war and then suddenly realized the enemy was too strong for them, so they turned around and burned down their own barracks. That is a pretty anemic revolution.

But here is the real issue:

Democrats want to run the country, but why would anyone let them? They destroy cities and states. Look at the statistics and you will come to an unavoidable conclusion: Crime, rioting, looting, and fires are almost the exclusive domain of Democrat controlled cities.

But that is not the most alarming part. They will not stop the thugs who are posing as revolutionaries from destroying private property and even killing innocent Americans. When asked about the rioting and the killing, Nancy Pelosi said, “Well. People will do what they will do.” In other words, if people don’t want it, it shouldn’t be there.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/pelosi-on-christopher-columbus-statue-destruction-people-will-do-what-they-do

Innocent Americans have lost their lives, trapped in these fires, riots and lootings. Trump wants to protect them, but the Democrats accuse him of being a dictator, because he wants to rescue them.

If you or your property stands in the way of a Democrat agenda, they will not intervene to protect you. Joe Biden is on record supporting nonintervention.

The only reason these thugs don’t burn down Red State cities is because they know they can’t. If Joe Biden is elected, they will know they can, and there will be no stopping them.

Nothing is more infuriating in this hour, than Christians who cannot figure out their glaringly obvious duty in this crisis. Reelecting Trump is no longer a political choice, it is a survival choice. I thank God for all of those believers who are wise enough to understand this, and brave enough to speak out.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TRUMP MUST DO AT THIS MOMENT

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

MOUNT RUSHMORE AND WHITE SUPREMACY

Democrats say that celebrating the 4th of July at Mount Rushmore glorifies White Supremacy. Well they finally did it. Democrats have reached racial critical mass—chain reaction racism—total racism. That is because Democrats see racism is everywhere, in everything, and in everybody.

Democrats can now tarnish any American tradition no matter how sacred or innocent by labeling it as racist.

The following is a tweet from the Democrat Party that appeared briefly and then was taken down, because even they realized how absurd it is:

“Trump has disrespected Native communities time and again. He’s attempted to limit their voting rights and blocked critical pandemic relief. Now he’s holding a rally glorifying White Supremacy at Mount Rushmore — a region once sacred to tribal communities.”

To begin with, Trump is not the one who has disrespected America, attempted to limit voting rights, or blocked pandemic relief. That is fake news. But that is what we have come to expect from Democrats. We expect lies and hoaxes such as the Russia collusion, the ridiculous Impeachment, and now: White Supremacy.

White supremacy is the latest hoax. The latest fake label. The evil Left is attempting to ram it down our throats and threatening anyone who doesn’t jump on the bandwagon.

Let me ask you:

When multibillion-dollar corporation Quaker Oats quakes and changes the name of their pancake syrup; when a cosmetic colossus like L’Oréal removes the word ‘whitening’ from their products; when Disney changes all reference to their movie The Song of the South from their ride out of fear; when Verizon, Coca Cola and others combine to cut $7 Billion in advertising in order to force “racial justice” because Facebook ran a pro-Trump ad; when the NFL, without even being asked, volunteers to replace the National Anthem with the Black National Anthem; when governments squash churches, but allow mass demonstrations; when police are told to stand down, while buildings are burning, statues of historic figures are torn down, and small businesses are looted; when students campaign to cancel Abraham Lincoln because they say he ‘didn’t love black people’: what do you have?

No. I mean besides insanity, and beyond hypocrisy— what do you have? Besides intellectual bedlam, and historical revisionism, I mean. What do you have?  I will tell you the one thing you absolutely do not have: White Supremacy. None of these things could ever happen in a white supremacist nation. 

In a racist nation, you would not be daily scolded by Whole Foods: “Racism has no place here. Racism and discrimination of any kind have no place at Whole Foods Market. We support the Black community and meaningful change in the world.” Or Delta Airlines, declaring that “systemic racism is present in all functions of our society.” Corporations are falling all over each other to win the “woke” contest. Who knew that equality could be so profitable in a ‘racist’ nation?

Then there’s Joe Biden.  His lies actually rise to the level of science fiction. He said that 120 million people worldwide have died of coronavirus, and 150 million Americans were killed by guns. OH, NO! THAT MEANS ONLY A FRACTION OF AMERICA IS STILL ALIVE!!

Can he top that? Well, of course he can.

Last August, while on the campaign trail, Biden claimed that, “Everything the President says and has done encourages White Supremacy.” Let’s unpack that statement. Everything Donald Trump says and does encourages White Supremacy. When he sleeps, he encourages White Supremacy. When he eats he encourages White Supremacy. Everything he does consciously and unconsciously promotes White Supremacy.

Except of course, when he made life better for minorities than any President in modern history.

How far will this madness go? That depends on the church. But many are asleep. None more so than the pastors who believe they are ‘woke.’ They dutifully intone the ‘black lives matter’ mantra, and foolishly march in lockstep with truly bad people—people who do not care anything about black lives. People who admit they are “trained Marxists.” Marxism has killed 100 million people. That’s not a Joe Biden statistic…that is a fact. These preachers have been duped—taken in by their own need for acceptance, intimidated by their own fears.

Think about it! Those they are rooting for are atheist Marxists—the avowed enemies of Jesus Christ. BLM and Antifa are laughing at them behind their backs.

This is where we must draw the line. We simply cannot permit a desecration of the 4th of July and Mount Rushmore.  This is where the church must wake up to her rightful duty to oppose this destruction of our freedom.

Jesus once rebuked a generation for refusing to see the signs of the times:

“He also said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you immediately say, ‘It is going to rain,’ and that is how it turns out. And when [you see that] a south wind is blowing, you say, ‘It will be a hot day,’ and it happens. You hypocrites (play-actors, pretenders)! You know how to analyze and intelligently interpret the appearance of the earth and sky [to forecast the weather], but why do you not intelligently interpret this present time? “And why do you not even on your own initiative judge what is right?” (Luke 12:54-57).

Jesus is asking the American church to see what Satan is plainly doing to America. Today they are focused on racism, tomorrow it will be on whatever they need it to be.

No matter how righteously they package it, this is a takeover. Bob Dylan said, “The enemy I see, wears a cloak of decency.” You should never admit to white supremacy that doesn’t exist, to live peaceably as a slave in a tyranny that does exist.

The word of the Lord for this hour is that you have no excuse if you ignore the weather pattern. The coming storm is unmistakable.

You say, “Mario, give me hope!” My hope is anchored in Truth. We must deny the racist label and refuse to be silent just because we are afraid of being called racists. You and God know the truth.

My prayer is that Trump’s rally at Mount Rushmore will be the electrode paddles that restart the American heart and soul. If you want hope…discern the times, refuse to join in the deception, and obey the voice of the Lord, no matter the cost—America is at stake!

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.

THEY’VE GOT NOTHING

With the level of scrutiny and manipulation that is being used on President Trump, Mr. Rogers could be impeached.  Trump has done nothing to deserve impeachment—nothing to deserve censure—nothing to be indicted for.  Literally: They have nothing. SADLY, THE HOUSE IS GOING TO VOTE TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT.

As the evidence gets thinner, Adam Schiff gets louder and screechier.

World powers greater than you can imagine are salivating at the prospect of removing Trump from office. Their greatest frustration is that, although they have all the money on earth with which to find it, they have not been able to pin any crime on Trump.

Franklin Graham is right to say that the war against Trump is demonic. Hell is convulsing to get Trump.

Why must they remove him? The answer is that a free and powerful America is a firewall against their dreams of global domination. But they have carefully repackaged it as a noble cause.

At this moment the youth of America are being duped on a scale unprecedented in history. Hitler told the youth of Germany that he was their real father and in order to have the new world that he promised, they must be willing to betray their parents to the Gestapo.

The mind manipulation that is being practiced on the youth of America is even beyond that. If it weren’t so tragic, it would be hilarious to watch university students who hate capitalism find out that they are the pawns of the worst capitalists ever. In the Bernie-bin, Socialism can sound feasible. In the wacky world of AOC, you feel the lure of socialism. None of them have seen how gazillionaires who hate American exceptionalism are pulling the strings of their idealism.

Dear young people: they are using your noble heart for very, very dark and selfish ends. Socialism is the ultimate Ponzi scheme. It’s where the poor gleefully accept government assistance, never realizing that it is only available while supplies last. In the end, it always elevates a small group of elite leaders to a position of power and wealth that cannot be brought down or even questioned.  

 

Is it just me, or is George Soros’ appearance morphing into that of Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars?  It makes sense to me.

True capitalism is economic justice, in that it fairly rewards hard work with prosperity. Trump was the first to directly threaten the deep state agenda to bring America into line with all the rest of the client states of the globalists. That is the only crime Trump has committed: He interrupted their tyranny.

In order to prove my next point, I am very tempted to allow you to see all the insane comments that are going to be generated by this blog. Remember I told you: they have nothing on Trump. So how do you advance from nothing, to impeachment? You appeal to a kind of emotional group-think so completely that a rational argument is no longer required.

The current mindset of the Left is to utterly abandon reason and give themselves over to Trump Derangement Syndrome. The mongers of domination are behind this. They want to stir emotions into a roaring flame of mindless hatred where facts no longer count. Their viewpoint is total emotion.

As I said, that is why I am tempted to post the comments a blog like this will generate. They will blast Trump, but make no point. They will drop F-bombs, unaided by logic or truth. They will kick up enough dust to disguise their Marxist revolution agenda. They will rant and rave, but they are incapable of a solitary salient point.

Thomas Paine said, “To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead, or endeavoring to convert an atheist by scripture.”

In their alternate universe, they can be guilty of a complete lack of logic.  They can make arguments that completely contradict what they just said a moment ago.  A single example is when you hear the leftist fake news pundits scream about how Trump’s behavior is unconstitutional (it’s not) and then they will blast the constitution as a flawed document written by old white men who were slave owners.

It is a miracle that Trump has done nothing to give them grounds to remove him. Let me say that again…he has broken no law, and done nothing that is unconstitutional. But they will vote to impeach him. Not because Trump has done anything wrong but because they have been paid to impeach him.

No weapon formed against him will prosper, and those who have set snares to destroy him, will be caught in the very snares they have set for him.

And, because God has placed Donald Trump in the Oval Office, the Democrats have set themselves up for the ultimate embarrassment.

 

P.S. Announcement! Mario Murillo has not written a book in 25 years.  But, with the nation at stake, God has given him a breakthrough book. And we have it for you!Listen to what Pastor John Kilpatrick, who led the Pensacola Revival, said about Mario’s new book:

 

“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.”

NOW THAT

Truth is the new hate speech.  Light has become darkness, lies have become truth, villains have become heroes, and love is now hate.  What do we do, especially now that the teachings of Jesus Christ are being intricately and essentially banned in the United States?  This censorship is designed to weaken the nation, centralize control, and bring down America.  Many believe it is already too late.

What is even worse is that much modern preaching is setting believers up to crash and burn when they face persecution.  Instead of arming the church to push back on the onslaught of censorship, some sermons are actually weakening the resistance of Christians.

I do not often drop the God card.  I never claim to hear from the Holy Spirit unless I have heard from Him in a clear and undeniable way.  Today, I heard from Him!  My spirit jumped at what He revealed about the very hour we are living in.   To begin with, I felt deep hope and a high sense of urgency.

I believe that the Lord is telling me to say, “It is not too late—but there is work to do.” This was reinforced by the verse He gave me, “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day;  the night is coming when no one can work.” (John 9:4)

Immediately after that, these next verses were branded into my soul:

Acts 14: 2 “But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brethren. 3 Therefore they stayed there a long time, speaking boldly with reliance upon the Lord, who was testifying to the word of His grace, granting that signs and wonders be done by their hands.”

I am going to offer four specific steps derived from these verses.  I believe that they hold a powerful key to understanding the moment we are in and the exact direction we must take.  Read it with great openness.  Let the lukewarm Christian take heed.  Let leaders and preachers give serious heed to these words of direction.  I do not believe they are my words.

1. Ask God to show you by the Holy Spirit what you are doing—and then abandon everything you are doing by your own power—no matter how ‘sacred’ it seems.  

Let us begin by repenting of our greatest mistake.  Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to run the Church and grow the Church.  He was sent to make us effective and relevant to the culture.

We are guilty of taking away His authority and running the church by our own wits, and by the methods of the world.  We have failed miserably.  Sadly, even failure has not stopped men from controlling the things of God.

In every generation hell belches out a new weapon of mass destruction.  But heaven is neither passive nor taken by surprise.  God creates a weapon of choice by the anointing.  Then He seeks for the person who will take up that weapon in the Name of Jesus and thrust it into the heart of darkness.

The American death-march does not surprise the Holy Spirit.  He already foresaw it, and He is driving us to our knees in prayer to seek His effective counter-attack.

It is all summed up in the words Samuel spoke to Saul: 1 Samuel 10: 6 “Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. 7 And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands, for God is with you.”

Waiting on God for power is the highest duty of a preacher.  Prayer must saturate us before we go forth. Those who believe that God must instantly honor our prayers are deluded by modern church entitlement.   We must seek—being utterly convinced that power is coming—but at the same time we must be fervently committed to wait as long as it takes.

This first step will cost you friends and church members, and it will impact your lifestyle.  But this is nothing compared to the disaster you will avoid.

2.Do not abuse prayer! In Numbers 22 it says, 18 “Then Balaam answered and said to the servants of Balak, ‘Though Balak were to give me his house full of silver and gold, I could not go beyond the word of the Lord my God, to do less or more. 19 Now therefore, please, you also stay here tonight, that I may know what more the Lord will say to me.’”

Balaam sounded noble, yet greed was in his heart.  He totally contradicted himself.  First he says, “Keep your money. God said, No.”  Then he asks the money people to spend the night to see if God might change His mind.

The classic reaction to my blogs on America’s disaster is, “All we need to do is pray.”  Nobody believes in the power of prayer more than I do.  However, there is a widespread abuse of prayer.  Prayer is being used as an excuse for delaying, remaining silent and escaping responsibility.

The key to the Lord’s Prayer is, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”  Prayer is going to give you direction.  But, if you pray until you get the direction you like, you have the spirit of Balaam.

This abuse of prayer even hit Moses.  He knew that he was supposed to lead the people through the Red Sea.  Yet he hesitated, and God got angry!  Exodus 14:15 “Then the LORD said to Moses, ‘Why are you crying out to me? Tell the people to get moving!’”

Disobedience is a prime reason we have lost this generation.   Many were told what to do about the nation and simply ignored it.  True intercession will never become a substitute for soul-winning.

God has been offering wisdom, direction, and power during the entire Obama regime.  We are at the point of destruction because few leaders have listened and obeyed.

If God sees that you want no part of the warfare, that you refuse to touch the unlovely, and you simply do not want to deal with your local human tragedy, then He will skip over you and find someone else.  Mordecai warned Esther about remaining silent:  14 “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14)

 3. Ignore the accusations of hate. When Christians address gay marriage, they often begin with a disclaimer: “I am not trying to be hateful.” Quit wasting time with misnomers. There is no widespread hatred of gays in the church. The hate is not coming from us; it is coming at us! The slander, smearing, obscene language, and death threats are spewing out of radical feminists, gay activists, and radical Islamists, not the Christians.

Simply speak the truth in love.  Do not apologize or condemn.  Offending people is unavoidable.  Save your energy, tell the truth, and leave the results in God’s hands.

4: We must make way for signs and wonders and supernatural acts of God like never before.   Jesus knows they are the only way we will get our message across in this toxic atmosphere. The miracles of Jesus not only continue today, they will accelerate more and more.  The phrase, “speaking boldly with reliance upon the Lord, who was testifying to the word of His grace, granting that signs and wonders be done by their hands” (Acts 14:3) speaks loud and clear to our time.

History teaches us something important: When the Word of God is summarily rejected and immorality has spiked, the Holy Spirit has more than met the challenge with increased power to preach, and towering miracles to confirm the message.

Finally, all four of these actions are summed up in the reality that we are at war.  We did not pick this fight but, with God, we are going to finish it!

 

 

 

IT’S NOT ABOUT JUSTICE AND EQUALITY

 

As you know, there is a lot of talk about paying for the sins of slavery and racism. On the face of it, reparations sound right, until you dig a little deeper and find out the true beliefs of those who are calling for reparations. You will see it is not about justice—it is about the total eradication of America as we know it.

Ta-Nehisi Coates is a journalist who is one of the primary voices pushing for reparations.  He just appeared before Congress to demand them. The trouble is he believes America is irredeemable.

In his article entitled, The Call For Reparations Isn’t About Justice, It’s About Power, John Daniel Davidson helps us see the true nature of Mr. Coates proposals:  “Ta-Nehisi Coates Believes America Is Irredeemable. To him, America was from the beginning a regime based on injustice and theft and violence. His 2014 Atlantic cover story on reparations is not so much an argument for reparations as an argument against America.”

Then Davidson quotes Coates: “America begins in black plunder and white democracy, two features that are not contradictory but complementary.”

Davidson concludes, “Another way of expressing this is to say that America is irredeemable, and that in order for justice to prevail, the regime itself must be destroyed—violently, if necessary.”

Ta-Nehishi Coates’ violent solution was confirmed in a 2017 podcast. The host, Ezra Klein asked Coates what he thought justice would look like for black Americans. Klein wrote: “When he (Coates) tries to describe the events that would erase America’s wealth gap that would see the end of white supremacy, his thoughts flicker to the French Revolution, to the executions and the terror.”

Coates told him, “It’s very easy for me to see myself being contemporary with processes that might make for an equal world, more equality, and maybe the complete abolition of race as a construct, and being horrified by the process, maybe even attacking the process. I think these things don’t tend to happen peacefully.”

In other words, justice would come with blood.

Reparations are about seizing power. They are not suing for damages; they are hoping to topple a way of life. The same thing goes for all the progressives. Each policy is a stepping stone toward erasing America. Flood the population, censor patriots, and assassinate character. By all means possible, attack and chip away at freedom.

A combination of equality and justice is the Trojan horse that their violent intentions rode in on.

Keep a bottle of Pepto handy when you watch the first Democratic debate. The candidates will try to out-left each other. They will compete to point out everything that is wrong with America. They won’t admit that they believe we need to set aside the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution—they won’t admit that they believe America is irredeemable—but nothing else explains the rhetoric they spew. All of them believe America must be removed.

How else can Democrat candidates get away with having zero ideas, zero solutions, and zero plans? It is because they appeal to those who hate America. Why waste time repairing something you believe can’t be fixed and must be done away with? Why not just keep feeding the blood lust of your base?

Do you seriously believe they hate Trump for his past or for his viewpoints? He is guilty of finding America fixable. “Make America Great Again” is a declaration of war to a Left that wants an America they believe to be irredeemable, to go away.

My greatest frustration with modern Christians is that against the backdrop of history, they are too slow to understand the approach of danger. They don’t have the stomach to finally grasp what the Left has now become—insurgents and revolutionaries. And they must be regarded as such.

Sherlock Holmes said, “Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.” It is impossible for so much venom and hatred for America to be a matter of mere political opinion. It is impossible for social media to ban anyone with opposing opinions so blatantly. It is impossible for the Democrat candidates to spout so many crazy ideas, unless they are appealing to a mindset that hates America.  No matter how improbable you may find their desire to eradicate your freedom—their actions and proposals for the future of America have eliminated all doubt, and it must be the truth.

 

 

 

 

THE CHURCH CAN BE MIGHTY IF

Two dumb ideas used by celebrity preachers as an excuse to remain silent when they should be mustering the army of God to do her duty.   She is losing influence every day because a confused view of her duty.

These ideas are putting the church back into Obama era apathy at the worst possible time.  Think of what is at stake.  The Supreme Court, the economy, national security, and everything we hold dear will be lost.  Everything Trump tried to do will vanish in an instant. The floodgates of immorality will open.

Here are the two bone-headed ideas.  1. All government is from God and we must submit and not mention politics.   2. A candidate must be sinless or we are choosing the lesser of two evils. 

And here are the verses abused to justify those two bone-headed ideas:

Romans 13: 1 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.  “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. 4 For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.”

1. It’s dumb to say stay out of politics and submit to government not matter what:  No sane Christian believes Hitler was God’s will for Germany.  God raised up divine retribution on him through the nations of the world.  God works through people to restrain evil.  The church must do her duty to restrain evil.

“The authorities that exist”: This phrase means authority from God, not rogue authority.  Satan is rogue authority.   God has always balanced the threat of tyranny with authorities He raises up: “God’s minister to execute wrath.”

Moreover, it says “No ruling authority from God is a terror to good works.”  They do not persecute God’s people or enact laws to ban the Gospel.  So what do you call authority that is a terror to good works?

German believers abused these same verses to justify their apathy.  Dietrich Bonhoeffer could not open the eyes of the German church about the horrors of Hitler.  His radio addresses warned Germany.  Ironically, he blamed the fad of cheap grace and their blind submission.  They rejected his warnings and the consequence was the bloodiest world war and 6 million Jews annihilated.

Again, the point is that God works through people to stop evil.  The church’s silence in the face of evil is not noble or virtuous, it is itself evil.

Nations can and do pick evil leaders.  Even Israel picked an evil leader: 1 Samuel 8:6 “But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, “Give us a king to judge us.” So Samuel prayed to the Lord. 7 And the Lord said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.”   Obama was never God’s choice for America.   We have a mountainous stockpile of wreckage to prove it.  

charade

When evil reigns, God begins a complicated process to reestablish justice. Human history is messy.  God works in that mess.  We want story book endings but humanity is complicated.  Jehovah works like a surgeon skillfully cutting around vital organs to get at the cancer.  Jesus spoke of the wheat and tares having to grow together until the end—otherwise the wheat would also be lost.   We have a Biblical mandate to discern and get involved in the work God is doing to save our nation.

Jehovah

2. It’s dumb to waste your vote because you “refuse to pick the lesser of two evils.”  You must discern where God is working and support it.  God uses flawed people: Daniel was probably shocked to discover that God choose to use Nebuchadnezzar.

Daniel

Instead of asking who is without sin, we should be asking where is God working?  

Look at what Paul did:  Acts 23:6 “But when Paul perceived that the one part were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question. 7 And when he had so said, there arose a dissension between the Pharisees and the Sadducees: and the multitude was divided. 8 For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit: but the Pharisees confess both. 9 And there arose a great cry: and the scribes that were of the Pharisees’ part arose, and strove, saying, We find no evil in this man: but if a spirit or an angel hath spoken to him, let us not fight against God.”

Jesus said that the Sadducees and Pharisees were both evil.  So was Paul choosing the lesser of two evils by siding with the Pharisees?  Or, was he discerning where God could work?   Right now it is Trump He can work with.  But Trump needs a Congress he can work with.  We had better work with God in this next election. 

Still don’t know what you must do?  From Nancy Pelosi to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democrats have vowed to open borders, seize guns, redistribute wealth, skyrocket taxes, and force the church to “evolve.”  The American church still does not see the danger, and that itself is the danger.

Evil is not hard to spot.  It hates, Israel, Christianity, and Biblical morality, the family, and the unborn.   The Democratic Party wears this badge of hate proudly. What else do you need to know?

These dumb ideas are not scriptural. They will play into the hands of those who would take away our rights and forever change America’s system of government.  It will be impossible to withstand the wave of falsehood and hatred in the next election if we do not repudiate these crippling dumb ideas.

But if we see them for what they are, rebuke them and submit to the Holy Spirit…even a small number can create a mighty transformation.

 

WHY WE HAVE HOPE FOR AMERICA

Let us tell you why we have hope for America.  As ministers of the Gospel we must take stands that are not popular.  Often, we must warn, correct, and give out bad news.  There is no way around the fact that many things threaten our faith and our freedom.  But there is also hope—hope for America.

We see the mighty hand of God working in wondrous ways—even in this dark time.  When we pray, we feel the fierce love of God for America.  We can hear Him saying, “hold on, I have not yet begun to fight for America.”  We see signs that encourage our faith.  We refuse to let anything steal our joy as we travel this great nation for Christ.  Let us give you the reasons for our hope.

Something supernatural is in our soil.  Michael Medved has identified 16 times America should have been destroyed but was spared at the last moment.  However, it is the way America was saved that is mind-boggling.  Relief literally came out of nowhere.Our hope is that God finishes what He starts.  He established this nation with an impossible victory over Britain.  He has repeated His acts of sovereign mercy again, and again.  Even when things looked much worse than today—and we didn’t deserve it—God turned circumstances in our favor and turned our hearts back to Him.  That is our hope.

Millions are praying for revival.  If Abraham’s math is correct, God would have saved Sodom and Gomorrah if just 12 righteous were found.  Despite the widespread number of lukewarm believers and watered-down preaching—there is a vibrant core of Christians who are claiming our nation through fervent intercession.  In fact, Daniel stood alone in prayer and fasting and forced the heart of King Cyrus to release Israel.  Millions are praying.  That corporate cry is not being ignored.

Extremes in the media and other anti-God agencies are backfiring.  The bias against God has been in the media for decades. The difference now is the towering overreach—the blatant bias—the deranged hatred is so intense they can’t hide it.  Time was, they could shape public opinion and call it news.  In their current melt down, they report banalities and keep reporting them even after they are proven false.  The audience looks on with shock and pity and asks, “where is the truth?”

The young are turning to Christ. The great vacuum created by leftist ideology leaves young souls groping for new life.  We see young souls coming forward from all over the tent.  They come quickly, they come forcefully, they come for nothing less than Jesus.   They dispel the lies Satan is saying about this generation.  When it comes to young people, it doesn’t take long for a small fire to grow into a widespread movement.

Signs, wonders and miracles are appearing in convincing scriptural order.  Miracles are not new.  Healings have been with us all along.  The difference now is they are being demonstrated in greater measure and with stronger Bible based preaching.  This makes them more contagious to the lost and more devastating to the enemy.

There you have it…our great hope for America.  There is no denying it will be a hard battle.  But if God be for us who can be against us?  God bless you, Mario and Mechelle Murillo

Hope for our battered president

There is no disrespect intended in the title.  No one can deny he is being battered.  We begin by facing facts: Trump’s statement about Haiti and Africa have unleashed a firestorm.   I am not here to examine what he said or shouldn’t have said.  That is for another blog. This is about you and me.  This is about keeping our perspective, our cool, and our discernment.This is about why there is hope for our president.

But, true hope is anchored in truth.  There’ll be no Pollyanna pep rally here.  It looks bad, real bad.  There will now be a massive effort to remove him from office by proving his is mentally unfit and invoke the 25th Amendment. Even some of his ardent supporters fear this will sink his presidency.  But before you lose heart remember what we know.

 

-We know that Obama and Hillary loyalists—deeply embedded in Washington—are working feverishly to destroy president Trump.  They are using their dark arts, not just on him, but on you.

-We know that a soulless media has discarded all pretense of objectivity.  They are minions of a mindless coup.  They are no longer capable of even thinking a decent thought toward Trump.

-We know that Trump is struggling to drain the swamp because some Republican Congressmen have stuck a hose back in it, recycling the swamp water.

-We know that Trump make-believers who once supported him abandoned ship at the first sign of trouble.

-We know that the forces behind Mueller and Comey will witch hunt Trump for concocted crimes while refusing to hold Hillary  accountable for terrible crimes.

-We also know that during this overthrow of freedom much of the Church naps under the influence of frightened ministers.

-But the most important thing to remember is why there is hope.  Yes, there is great hope for our president.  I am shouting this question in your ear: HAVE WE FORGOTTEN THAT POWERFUL FRIEND?

Once before evil rose, with its bloody talons on the throat of America, and relief came from an unexpected source: This plea from Benjamin Franklin:

In the beginning of the contest with Great Britain, when we were sensible of danger, we had daily prayers in this room for divine protection. Our prayers, sir, were heard; and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in this struggle must have observed frequent instances of a superintending Providence in our favor. To that kind Providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful Friend?

Here is our powerful friend: Prayer, real prayer, sincere prayer, fervent prayer, unceasing prayer.  Prayer will expose the lies.  Prayer will defeat the traps laid before Trump.  Prayer will shut the mouth of the lion, topple the Washington walls of Jericho, split the Red Sea of fake news, and raise the Lazarus church from the dead.

Our powerful friend is waiting to bring unimaginable help and shocking breakthroughs.

Can I reintroduce you to our powerful friend?  Consider these points:

1. Even if you are the only one praying, it can change everything.  “Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”  James 5:16

When Israel languished in Babylon under the lash of Nebuchadnezzar only Daniel engaged that powerful friend.  He set himself to pray and fast.  His prayer, his solitary prayer, moved Cyrus to fulfill the prophecy of Jeremiah and release the Jews after 70 years of slavery.

The angel told Daniel it was his prayer that did it.  Daniel 10:12 “Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words.”

In the New Testament, one man’s prayer brought the Holy Spirit to the gentiles.  Acts 10: 1 “There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian Regiment, 2 a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always. 3 About the ninth hour of the day he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God coming in and saying to him, ‘Cornelius!’ 4 And when he observed him, he was afraid, and said, ‘What is it, lord?’ So he said to him, ‘Your prayers and your alms have come up for a memorial before God.'”

2. Even if you do not know how to ask, the Holy Spirit will pray through you.  Romans 8: 26, “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”

Think of that!  We don’t know how to pray for this national disaster, but the Holy Spirit does.  Our prayer language carries untold power to interrupt, and alter the affairs of man.  He, the Holy Spirit carries all power and wisdom.  He possesses the precision of prayer that totally escapes us.  He will commandeer our requests to the very throne of God.

3. My final point is the most powerful and encouraging: God told us to pray for our leaders.  1 Timothy 2: 1 “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.”

Why would we expend energy on worry when we can pray?  Why would we sit paralyzed watching the news instead of utilizing prayer to make news?  You, by yourself, have the power to ask and receive, why would you delay praying?  God told us that He is pleased when we pray for our leaders.  Isn’t that the most powerful motivation of all.  Remember our powerful friend.
