Revival or Civil War?

Trump is being investigated.  They claim he colluded with the Russians.  They claim he rigged an election.  Here is the hair pulling part of this:  We now know—without an investigation—Hillary did both of those things.

Revival or Civil War?

By Mario Murillo

After months of digging, the special prosecutor has turned up nothing linking Trump to any Russian, to any rigging, to any…anything.   Yet, investigators continue to claim they are about to find something.

Meanwhile, a gigantic something—the mastodon in the room—is ignored.  They simply refuse to investigate Hillary Clinton.  Hillary is so smug, that to this hour, she continues to accuse Trump collusion and rigging.

What has possessed the political elite to alter reality?  What mental defect has gripped the fake new media that they can do this without any pang of conscience?  How can they disregard the destruction they are heaping on America?  The focus of this blog is not Hillary but how the treatment of this situation highlights our moral disaster.  The Bible tells us how we got to this point.

Jesus said, “they strain at a gnat and swallow a camel.”  But another Bible verse hits even closer to home.  Isaiah 5:20 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

I bring up Hillary because she is symptomatic of what is killing the American soul.  It is a madness that is bringing us to the brink of civil war.  Indeed, Isaiah was warning those who call evil good and good evil of something very perilous: After you sin long enough, God judges you with a mind that reverses right and wrong, good and evil and yes, sanity and insanity.

You need to read all of Isaiah Chapter 5.  It is an eerie parallel to America right now.  Matthew Henry said about Isaiah 5, “In this chapter the prophet, in God’s name, shows the people of God their transgressions, even the house of Jacob their sins, and the judgments which were likely to be brought upon them for their sins…Covetousness, and greediness of worldly wealth, which shall be punished with famine (v. 8-10) 2. Rioting, revelling, and drunkenness (v. 11v. 12v. 22v. 23), which shall be punished with captivity and all the miseries that attend it (v. 13-17). Presumption in sin, and defying the justice of God (v. 18v. 19). Confounding the distinctions between virtue and vice, and so undermining the principles of religion (v. 20). Self-conceit (v. 21). Perverting justice, for which, and the other instances of reigning wickedness among them, a great and general desolation in threatened, which should lay all waste (v. 24v. 25), and which should be effected by a foreign invasion.”

I am convinced that America is down to 2 options:  Revival or Civil war.  Yes, you heard me right.  Millions of Americans staunchly support Trump—though they have been beaten into silence they are fervent in their commitment to our president.

They see injustice not only directed at Trump, but at their faith, their values, freedoms and their loved ones.  They understand political correctness to be the cancer of our times.

They see a small, vocal, activist cadre controlling most of what we see and hear.  They see free speech fading—they see morals vanishing—they see tyranny as Antifa is declaring violent warfare on American citizens.

With all my might, in this explosive hour, I am compelling everyone who will listen that revival is something that should be uniting every Christian.  The urgency of national repentance cannot be over stated—neither can the power of God.

What I am trying to say, in this blog, is that the mindset, that reverses light and darkness, good and evil has overtaken us because of our wickedness.

If we do not harness the anger of millions fed up with all of the perversion of truth—if we do not channel it into a moral awakening—it will lead to civil disruption on a scale too terrible to describe.

Let us drop all of our foolish distractions and provoke fervent prayer—church gatherings full of fire and love, pulpits peopled by preachers who thunder unvarnished truth and let the chips fall where they may.

Time is almost up.  A fuse is about to be lit.  God help us to light the right one.

It’s just not right

There is no version of kneeling during the national anthem that is right.  Of course, you have the right to do it, but it is just not right.  I raised my son to know the difference between civil and moral law—to know what you have a right to do—and the right thing to do.

It’s just not right

By Mario Murillo

There is no version of kneeling during the national anthem that is right.  Of course, you have the right to do it, but it is just not right.  I raised my son to know the difference between civil and moral law—to know what you have a right to do—and the right thing to do.

Men, you have the right to leave your wife of 30 years, hook up with a bimbo and ignore your children for the rest of your life.  It’s just not right.  You have the right to look at porn but it’s just not right.  You have the right to drop F bombs in front of women, cut in line, and pass gas in an elevator.  It’s just not right.

You kneelers, in the NFL are clueless about how you look.  You have no idea how deeply you have offended tens of millions of Americans of all races.  You can’t image how impossible it is—for any reasonable, hard-working American—to see you coddled, multi-millionaires, as oppressed victims.

But Mario, I am trying to bring attention to injustice and racism.  For real?  By attacking the very symbol of our fight against those things?  By doing it in front the families whose loved ones  paid with their lives to defend the flag?

You have have not shown how, such a mindless offensive act, advances the cause of racial justice.  The only conversation you have started is about boorish behavior.  Of course, the usual suspects on the left will hail your tantrums.  They want chaos no matter what package it arrives in. 

And of course, you are darlings of the entertainment industry who are so delirious with Trump derangement syndrome that any shot at the president is welcomed. 

Don’t let the current fever fool you.  When it all settles, and God-fearing, patriotic Americans get their say, and reason prevails, you, the cheese will stand alone.  So let me ask you:

-If it is police brutality you are targeting why not kneel in front a police station? 

-If lives are what you care about, how about kneeling in front of a crack house?

-If lives matter then kneel to the reality of devastating black on black violence.

Even the near-sighted can see how many of you “protest” in the bubble of celebrity, and then escape in fine cars to your mansions.

Yes, I give Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys half credit—but his act of kneeling with the players before the anthem is like the parent that says, “I know you are going to smoke, so let’s smoke together on the porch.”

Senator Dan Quayle once compared himself to John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States during a debate with Senator Lloyd Bentsen.  Bentsen replied, “Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy. I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you’re no Jack Kennedy.

I lived in Berkeley in the 70’s I saw true protesters with true courage force the nation to face issues.  They sacrificed.  I knew these protesters and you kneelers…are not those protesters.

The violence is coming from only one side

The violence is coming from only one side.  The shooting of a Republican politician is a horrifying development but not surprising.  The call to tone down the rhetoric on both sides sounds rational but it is wholly misguided because it assumes there is equal blame on the right and left.

Here is the news:

  James Hodgkinson, 66, died in hospital after being shot by Capitol Police at the baseball field in Virginia 

  He was a staunch Democrat who documented his hatred for President Trump on social media pages

  Hodgkinson moved from his home in Illinois to Virginia two months ago and had been living out of his car

  He has a long criminal history which includes punching a woman in the face in 2006 and disrupting police 

  Steve Scalise, the House Majority Whip, is in a critical condition after being shot by the gunman at 7am

  He was taking part in a GOP practice session with other politicians when Hodgkinson opened fire on them 

  Two Capitol Police officers who were there to protect Scalise bravely returned fire on the gunman 

  They were injured along with lobbyist Matt Mika and congressional staffer Zachary Barth but all are expected to recover

I ask you…are conservatives rioting, burning threatening or shooting Democratic politicians?  Do you see widespread civil unrest fomenting among Trump supporters?  Do conservative comedians hold up bloody heads of Hillary or cheer plays that depict the assassination of Obama?
The left wants to destroy civil discourse.  Democratic leaders use F-bombs in their speeches help win voters.  What kind of mind are you appealing to?  “Hey, I want to vote for that party, they cuss.”
The main reason conservatives don’t cuss or make violent remarks is because of their convictions.  The other big reason is that, unlike the left, they will not get away with anything.  The media runs cover for all incendiary speech from the left.
A liberal can say or do almost anything—and they have.  Madonna said she wants to blow up the White House.  Not one liberal leader condemned her.  Violence, rioting and hate speech is the domain of the left.
Yet, the most innocent remark from a conservative is dissected, reformulated and reworded to be racist, homophobic, islamophobic and all the other labels we are sick of hearing.
To suggest that the shooting was the result of rhetoric on both sides is like telling a rape victim, “you shouldn’t have dressed provocatively.”   Unless we admit that one side is being unfairly targeted, censored and persecuted there will be no justice and violence will escalate.
Look righteously at the situation:  One side can say and do almost anything they want because movies stars, the media, and celebrities don’t like the beliefs of the other side.  That’s not the America our founders had in mind.
The media—if it still had the capacity—should be ashamed.  You don’t exercise a freedom to destroy another freedom.  Freedom of the press is not a club to destroy freedom of speech.  The Democratic party and the media’s tacit approval of dictatorial colleges, riots, and threats of violence is causing this escalation.
Our president is being crucified for things for which there is zero evidence of wrong doing.  The left does not care about the harm it is doing to freedom—the end justifies their means.  All God-fearing people should speak out and be in fervent prayer for this monster to be exposed.

THE AMERICAN MIRACLE: ARE YOU FINALLY READY?

So what if some think I am crazy?  So what if saying “an American miracle”  makes even some Christian leaders mad? I am asked all the time what it would take…so if you are finally ready—if you are willing to leave the turkeys and fly with the eagles—here is what you do…

If you are finally ready

By Mario Murillo

“I wish you would give us an answer for America.”  I hear that a lot!   Oh the answer is out there alright, but you have to be ready.  Many believe that they are ready but they are not.

To be ready means an unshakable passion for change.  The sorcerer tried to buy from Peter the power to impart the Holy Spirit.  Peter said, “You have neither part nor portion in this matter, for your heart is not right in the sight of God” – Acts 8:21. The daily behavior of millions of Christians and pastors prove they are not ready.

If you are playing games you are not ready.  Seeker churches are playing a marketing game.  They will never be a force for change in our culture; unless of course, someone invents a way to have moral awakening without repentance.

The hyper-emotional churches are not ready either.  They are also playing games.  Fire tunnels and prophetic conferences can–if not balanced into actual soul-sinning–easily degenerate a version of Dungeons and Dragons.  Those who chase blessings and “words” are worse than unready, they are immobilized.  They are play-acting at revival.

Do lost souls, national sin, and the loss of our constitution deeply matter to you?   If they do not, God will not enroll you to save America.  How could He?  If you shy away from reality and say silly things like, “I don’t want to know what is going on, it is too depressing,” then you have no part in the solution.

Here are the people who are ready: Pastors who want to influence the culture more than they want a big church are ready.  Pastors who are passionate for the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and cannot live without winning the lost, are ready.   Christians, who are clear that America will soon die without revival, are ready. What is the most urgent sign that you are ready?  The answer is an unambiguous conviction to pursue revival even if no one else joins you.  God is not waiting for the church.  He will start without them.   All He needs is one willing vessel.

The one willing vessel will unlock awesome power by confessing, “I will do whatever it takes for however long it takes.”  What makes this idea come alive is something called the Stockdale Paradox.  Here is an excerpt from Good to Great written by Jim Collins: The name refers to Admiral Jim Stockdale, who was the highest ranking United States military officer in the “Hanoi  

Hilton” prisoner-of-war camp during the height of the Vietnam War. Tortured over 20 times during his eight-year imprisonment from 1965 to 1973,

Stockdale lived out the war without any prisoner’s rights, no set release date, and no certainty as to whether he would even survive to see his family again. “Here I am sitting in my warm and comfortable office, looking out over the beautiful Stanford campus on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. I’m getting depressed reading this, and I know the end of the story! I know that he gets out, reunites with his family, becomes a national hero, and gets to spend the later years of his life studying philosophy on this same beautiful campus.

afternoon. I’m getting depressed reading this, and I know the end of the story! I know that he gets out, reunites with his family, becomes a national hero, and gets to spend the later years of his life studying philosophy on this same beautiful campus.

If it feels depressing for me, how on earth did he deal with it when he was actually there and did not know the end of the story?” “I never lost faith in the end of the story,” he said, when I asked him. “I never doubted not only that I would get out, but also that I would prevail in the end and turn the experience into the defining event of my life, which, in retrospect, I would not trade.”

I didn’t say anything for many minutes, and we continued the slow walk toward the faculty club, Stockdale limping and arc-swinging his stiff leg that had never fully recovered from repeated torture. Finally, after about a hundred meters of silence, I asked, “Who didn’t make it out?” “Oh, that’s easy,” he said. “The optimists.” “The optimists? I don’t understand,” I said, now completely confused, given what he’d said a hundred meters earlier. “The optimists. Oh, they were the ones who said, ‘We’re going to be out by Christmas.’ And Christmas would come, and Christmas would go. Then they’d say, ‘We’re going to be out by Easter.’ And Easter would come, and Easter would go. And then Thanksgiving, and then it would be Christmas again. And they died of a broken heart.”

Another long pause, and more walking. Then he turned to me and said, “This is a very important lesson. You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end—which you can never afford to lose—with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.”Blog 3Why is this Paradox so important to the American church right now?  The answer is the last several years.  These are years that shattered Pollyanna doctrines and fluff faith.  We never dreamed it could get this bad this fast. Our version of optimists has left the church.  They have fallen away because of persecution.

The remnant is ready for untold power if it heeds this lesson: Things are bad, really bad; deal with it.  But never, ever lose faith in the arrival of revival.  Embrace the facts no matter how brutal they seem and at the same time believe with all of your might that everything you are doing to see the power of God released on America will be rewarded. When you pray, God will hear.  When you speak out people will listen.  No matter how unpromising your action feels now, keep going because “there is no restraint with God to save by few or to save by many!”  Hallelujah!

 

 

MR PRESIDENT, JUST STOP TALKING TO THE PRESS

 

Take it from a preacher—you need to stop talking to the press.  They have sold themselves to toppling you.  They are as far from journalism as the east is from the west.
Consider this verse from the Bible the next time you are tempted to answer one of their stupid questions: “Do not answer a fool according to his folly, lest you also be like him. – Proverbs 26:4
I write this to you because I have heard from people I trust that you love Jesus.  I also believe you love America.  It’s as a brother that I write this.
You have more important things to do!  Media banalities throw you off your game.  They try to use your competitive nature against you.   Let me invoke some New York City wisdom: fuhgeddaboudit.
Just keep on making America great again.  The people that matter—the American people—will see the results and support you.
Mr. President, the same constitution which guarantees freedom of the press, guarantees freedom from the press—especially when it is no longer the press.
You already know this: North Eastern colleges spew out 89% of our “journalists”.  It was in these hallowed halls that accurate reporting was chloroformed.  Truth, accuracy, fairness and honesty were all sacrificed on the altar of “secular progressivism.”

In this cult, the global order must come no matter what the cost.  America must be diminished by open borders, the destruction of the family, and the eradication of our Judaeo/Christian values.  You, dear president, stand in the way of all of this.
I am trying to Mirandize you against the press: anything you do say, can and will be used against you.
Please read what Jesus said to understand the media: “Luke 7: 31 And the Lord said, “To what then shall I liken the men of this generation, and what are they like? 32 They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another, saying:  ‘We played the flute for you, And you did not dance; We mourned to you, And you did not weep.’
33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon.’ 34 The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’
Do you see the comparison?  The liberal media wanted James Comey fired.  Every Democratic leader called for his head.  Firing James Comey was noble and right…until you did it.
Until accurate reporting makes a comeback, nothing you say or do will be right.  Ignore them.

Is Donald Trump mentally ill?

Is Donald Trump mentally ill? Is he a malignant narcissist…like Hitler was?  Hundreds of mental health professionals put together an organization called Duty To Warn.  Psychologist John Gartner, the founder of Duty To Warn said: “If you take President Trump’s words literally, you have no choice but to conclude that he is psychotic.”  Imagine what the media would do if anyone said that about Obama?

Let me me clear the air on my opinion.  Not only is President Trump sane–he is the sanity that we have been waiting for.   He is crazy like a fox.

What is going on here should enrage you.  It is something born out of total desperation. It is a  much darker and vicious threat to our freedom than you know.  More on that later.

Gartner goes on to say, “We believe that just as we are ethically and legally obligated to break confidentiality to warn a potential victim of violence, our duty to warn the public trumps all other considerations.”

Here is their diagnosis of our president: “His narcissism is evident in his “grandiose sense of self-importance … without commensurate achievements.” From viewing cable news, he knows “more about ISIS than the generals” and believes that among all human beings on the planet, “I alone can fix it.” His “repeated lying,” “disregard for and violation of the rights of others” (Trump University fraud and multiple sexual assault allegations) and “lack of remorse” meet the clinical criteria for anti-social personality. His bizarre conspiracy theories, false sense of victimization, and demonization of the press, minorities and anyone who opposes him are textbook paranoia. Like most sadists, Trump has been a bully since childhood, and his thousands of vicious tweets make him perhaps the most prolific cyber bully in history.”

Here is their goal: “Trump should be removed under the 25th Amendment because he is too mentally ill to competently serve.”  To this end, they will stage a nationwide march on October 7th.

Look closely at their final warning: psychiatrist Robert Jay Lifton warned against creeping “malignant normality.” Under a malignantly narcissistic leader, alternate facts, conspiracy theories, racism, science denial and delegitimization of the press become not only acceptable but also the new normal. If we do not confront this evil, it will consume us.”  Their multicity March for Sanity on Oct. 7 to “make America sane again.” “Hope to see you there, he says, “assuming we’re all still here.”

If Trump stays in office we will not know truth from falsehood?  We will deny science?  The Press will be delegitimized?  The world will end?  Okay, I ask you, who are the real psychotics?  And where was their mental health integrity during Obama’s reign of terror?

Narcissist?  Obama said of his presidency “this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”

Alternate facts?  In Beaverton Oregon, Obama said he visited all 57 states.

Bully?  When Obama knew that Americans were being tortured and killed in Benghazi, he and Hillary hatched a lie to protect his reelection.  Then he went to bed and slept soundly.

Psychotic anti-social behavior?  In the United Nations General Assembly on 25 September 2012 Obama said, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”  What makes this sick is the way liberals defend that statement.  They say it was among a list of other things that should also have no future.  One of the things on that list is the killing of Coptic Christians.   Obama conflates words against Mohammed to murder.  This is pure Sharia.

It should be no surprise that is also the credo of the antifascists who are destroying free speech on campus: “your viewpoint equals violence, so I am right to riot.”

Conspiracy theories?  The Russians hacked and won the presidency for Trump.  Where’s the evidence?

Global warming of the brain: When noted meteorologist Anthony J. Sadar suggested this:Attacks on skeptics do a disservice to scientists and their profession.”  We was met by a truly unscientific and psychotic firestorm.

The press destroyed themselves.  It wasn’t Trump.  Long before anyone knew who the Republican candidate for president would be they were busy colluding to elect Hillary Clinton, tossing all journalistic integrity out the window.

Of course Trump Tweets.  When 89% of the press has sworn to run you out of office by lying, cheating and slandering…how else do you tell your side of the story?

The real mental condition of today: Trump derangement syndrome: A irrational hatred that negates facts, rational thinking, and emotional balance.  It must become lewd (Stephen Colbert).  It must become delusional—“I lost because of the FBI and misogyny.” -Hillary Clinton.  It must become violent, “I have thought about blowing up the White House”-Madonna.

Now in an act of total desperation a group of mental health workers take it to the next and most dangerous level.  Here it is unvarnished:  If Donald Trump is mentally ill because he opposes our politics.  Conflating mental illness with disagreeing on policy is the stuff of Nazism…the very thing they claim to be against.

The most chilling phrase is “you have no choice but to conclude.”  You must agree with us or you are nuts.  They are taking us down the road to a day when mental illness is simply disagreeing with them.  God help us if the government ever gets behind this.

Remember, this is desperation.  The left is running out of options.  By any means necessary they must get Trump out of office.  It’s like the argument in the school yard.  When the one guy had no more ammunition he would just say, ‘aw, you’re crazy.”

No matter how you cut it.  These “workers” ignore psychosis when it advances their cause.  And who are these people anyway?  Every one of these shrinks are loyal Democrats.  The article was printed in USA Today—a mouthpiece of the Hillary Campaign.  Enough said.

YOU’VE LOST ME

“You’ve lost me.”  That’s the despairing voice of millions of our children. “I don’t get your anger.  I don’t get what you are trying to tell me.  I can’t understand the things you say are important—you’ve lost me.”  What will become of them?  What nameless horror awaits them in the future?  They know that are not valued.  They know they don’t really matter to America anymore.

They are trying to tell us, “You’ve lost me because you do not care about me.”  Tragically, the majority of people who are in their lives, on any given day, do not care about them.   In fact, these activists do not care about anybody’s children—not even their own.

The left really doesn’t even want children.  Seattle and San Francisco have more dogs than children.

In all the noise “progressive” education is making about sex education, diversity and human rights one thing is painfully clear: none of it is about the child.  The noise is for a minuscule number of grown ups–not the children–that liberals see as oppressed.  For Social Justice Warriors there is no tomorrow.

In a telling moment on Fox News Tucker Carlson asked Bruce/Kaitlin Jenner the reason for his/her activism.   The answer was illuminating: “so the next generation will be tolerant of those like me.”  It’s not about what children are going through—it’s not about building a future for them…no, it’s about the cause—the forced transformation of how children should think.  It’s about bulldozing over our current values, no matter what the cost or who it hurts.

Teachers unions make sure the damage begins early.   Most grammar school classrooms are echo chambers of indoctrination.  Your little girl is shamed for not accepting her duty to bring down the patriarchal system.  Your little boy is shamed for, well, being a boy.  Your child is taught to hate America and everything it stands for.

Of course, these lefties have no solutions.   They only have grievances.  They know what they want to tear down.  Then there are the universities.

The welfare of the next generation also means nothing to modern universities where, inflammatory rhetoric trumps reading, writing and math.   Campuses are churning out automatons who can’t think logically, defend their rage, or read their own diplomas.

Look closely into the eyes of protesting students—especially the younger ones.  You will see half-baked convictions.  You will see hysterical behavior from an unsure devotee.  They don’t know if it’s right but they do it anyway out a dysfunctional need for the approval of pseudo-intellectual tyrants.  They want academic approval—chanting and screaming, then like battered children, they’ll glance over at the abusive parent and ask, “is this what you want me to do?!”

And what these professorial bullies want them to do is believe something utterly stupid: i.e. “Your words are like physical violence to me, so I must use violence to silence you.”  Many student protesters can’t explain their protest—heck, they can’t even spell it.  Check out a few of their protest signs!

That brings me to my most important question:  How will they be able to feed themselves with this bogus education?  How will they survive?  Most importantly how will they value freedom enough to protect it?

They are urged to explore their urges—to operate on free-floating anger.  But they cannot persevere.  They possess no marketable skill—nor the will to gain such skills.

Why on earth are we giving these villains destroying our children quarter.  Here’s something all sane people laugh at:  federal funding for institutions who want to overthrow the federal government.  Liberal education is turning into the crime of the century.  They have disgraced themselves.

“You’ve lost me.”  That phrase should awaken a fire in your soul.  Begin with your own child!  Hold them like you never held them before.  Give them the weapons to defeat destructive emotions and dastardly ideas.  Remember how we made fun of home-schoolers…not so much now huh?

I once sat at a round table discussion with other media ministries.  They were talking about future vision and what their ministries would look like in 5 years.  There were a lot of lofty projects in the works.

When it came my turn—they were not prepared for my answer.  I told them I was re-calibrating everything to go after the young.  I told them I was in the throes of fresh surrender to the Holy Spirit.  I told them that we hear the cry of a tortured generation.

I told them the young need meetings where supernatural power gives them proof of Christ.  They need events where the preaching fills them with direction—where God puts the Holy Ghost on them to make them mighty souls the gates of hell cannot defeat.  We need to do way, way more but this is a start.

We have only just begun to fight for them.  I hope you’ll join me in this fight.  At least I hope you will answer the call of God.

One thing I know beyond all knowing—when this generation of children says to me “you’ve lost me,” I will roar back—there is no way we will ever lose you!
