Why are you praying for protection if you won’t take a stand?

The Sheriff of Douglas County, Nevada, Dan Coverley, has a message for his county’s library: “Due to your support of Black Lives Matter and the obvious lack of support or trust with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, please do not feel the need to call 9-1-1 for help,” Coverley wrote. “I wish you good luck with disturbances and lewd behavior, since those are just some of the recent calls my office has assisted you with in the past.”

I fully relate to this Sheriff’s frustration. And yet, aren’t ‘woke’ American Christians doing the very same thing to God? They support Black Lives Matter—a Marxist/atheist movement. They use the terminology of the Left to appear inclusive, not realizing they are excluding God by their fellowship with darkness. These lukewarm believers are not only soft on abortion and sexual immorality, they also have no regard for the Word of God.

Millions of these ‘woke’ Christians are nervous and anxious about tomorrow. They see the storm we are sailing into. They even pray for protection for themselves and the ones they love—but they won’t take a stand, and they don’t agree with God’s means of saving us. Hypocrites! You want God to save you from the very evil you refuse to stand against!

Wake up! The revolution on our streets is not about black lives or even about hating Trump. The goal is an America without God. This revolution is driven by atheism. Its goal is to get America to turn her back on God.

And remember this: The war on God extends to the giants of media and commerce: Facebook, Google, Amazon, Apple, and Twitter are not neutral. They are actively working toward a world without God. That is why they censor Conservative Christians.

These five God-hating companies have a combined net worth of over $6 Trillion, and unfettered access to the largest audience in human history. That is not even the full extent of it: NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, and hundreds of newspapers also beat the drum for a Godless America.

That is why they tacitly approve of the mayhem on our streets. That is why you see the unravelling of morality and the vilest perversion paraded before our children. You are watching destruction by design. Evil men skew poll numbers and virus statistics in order to take control and drive the church underground.

Israel was guilty of rebelling against God’s law while demanding His protection. They felt entitled to be protected because they kept a form of Godliness. They even fasted. Still, they wondered why God wasn’t hearing their prayers of protection.

Israel cried out to God. “Why have we fasted,” they say, “and You have not seen? Why have we afflicted our souls, and You take no notice?” (Isaiah 58:3)

In the same way, many American Christians wonder why they are empty inside and full of dread. Preachers who refuse to take a stand, wonder why their mouth is full of straw and not revelation from God.

God answered Israel, saying, in essence: ‘Do you want to know why your prayer for protection and inner peace is rejected? Why God doesn’t listen to you anymore?’

The following verses are just as much for woke American Christians today as they were for Israel then: “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy, that it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered perversity. No one calls for justice, nor does any plead for truth. They trust in empty words and speak lies; they conceive evil and bring forth iniquity” (Isaiah 59:1-4).

Ask yourself: Have you called for a truce with evil? Is there blood on your hands because you will not oppose abortion? Are you guilty of not calling for justice and truth?

Are you guilty of using empty lying phrases like, “Black Lives Matter,” and “White silence is violence?”  You know these are falsehoods. You know these violent protestors hate God.

Are you consorting with the avowed enemies of God and asking for God to keep you safe from their agenda?

Worst of all, do you reject Donald Trump? He is the strong medicine America needs. Of course, you would have chosen someone else. Of course, you wanted a smooth voice and a polite enabler. But that is not what this hour calls for! Why do you pray for protection, but refuse to vote for him?

On the other hand, there is a word of protection and joy to the remnant of God. You aren’t meant to be a ‘lone ranger.’ You need to be in a church where the leader is pressing into God, and seeking revival. Find a church with a godly leader who is neither your ‘theological teddy bear,’ nor your ‘pulpit impresario.’

The nation is filled with houses of God that will be ground zero for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. True prophets like David Wilkerson foretold two events—a calamity that would shut down America in an instant, followed by a fresh wave—a reformation of the Holy Fire of God, leading to a massive harvest.

Hold on! Another Azusa St. or Jesus Movement-type of event is coming for the people who know their God, and for the houses that have stayed faithful to their Lord.

 

On the other hand, there is no doubt that America has filled up God’s cup of wrath. Though we have passed through one storm—it won’t be the last. If we don’t learn the lesson, and repent, the wrath of God will again come down upon wickedness, because He means to purify the church and save our nation from itself.

But, woe to those of you who pray for protection, but refuse to take a stand.

In God, there is safety in taking a stand:

And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for just such a time as this?” (Esther 4:13-14)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

ENTITLEMENT AND ESCAPISM

Something is coming and the church is not ready. In recent days God has been trying to warn the American church about what is coming, but, what have we done with these warnings?

I heard one preacher exclaim, “Teaching that anything bad is coming, is defeatism.” He refused to give his children a defeatist world view. What he thinks is love is the ultimate abuse. His children will not be ready.

It’s not as if God hasn’t warned the American church that perilous times are coming. One choice instrument was David Wilkerson. Many listened to his predictions, but many others wrote him off as an angry prophet.

I dare you to reread his words, go back and watch his videos, they are still on YouTube. David will come across completely different to you now. Now that libraries are bringing in drag queens to read to children. Now that abortion is no longer just a ‘right,’ but a cause for celebration. Now that our halls of power are sewers of falsehood, betrayal, ambition, greed, and lust, and now that the very fabric of civilized society is unraveling.

I dare you to call him legalistic, now that you can see that exactly what he predicted is happening.  Now that you see churches have abandoned the Bible.  Now that every day you hear of one more minister condoning materialism and promoting a ‘cheap grace’ that covers lust. Disdaining holiness and denying the existence of Hell. Just as he predicted, there is an epidemic of preachers who are addicted to drugs, alcohol, and pornography.

Our young daughters have unwelcome transgender visitors in the girl’s restroom at school.  We are a nation of drug addicts. Tens of thousands die every year from opioids.

The bane of Modern Christianity can be summed up in just 2 words: Entitlement and Escapism.

Go back with me to a time before all this madness, and see when a sense of entitlement began to infect the church.

No one got saved in the early church because they were promised a lavish life. Each convert knew from the jump they would pay a price for following Jesus. They embraced Christ because something real happened to them. They knew—beyond knowing—that He was the Truth and the Life.  Knowing Him was infinitely worth the cost. All they wanted was Jesus.

It is ironic that we tend to feel sorry for them, when in fact they would pity us! Yes, they were persecuted, but God was real in them. Their clarity unlocked something most of us do not have: inexpressible peace and joy.

Entitlement rolled into church like a Trojan horse. Certain preachers, like all good marketers, considered true discipleship a hard sell, so they replaced it with perks, inducements and flattery. Church became one giant participation trophy. The unspoken boast was, “What have we to do with self-denial? What have we to prepare for?” We as American Christians became too good for suffering. That was for other people, in other nations.

What edge did believers in the first century have over us? A massive one. They could survive anything that they encountered, whereas many today will be taken out the moment something happens that their pastor said God would never let happen.

Since ancient Christians expected to suffer, suffering never threw them for a loop. It never dawned on them that they would escape trials and tribulations. Because of that, they had a singular power that we don’t: the power to glory and thrive in evil times.  Compare that with today’s Christian whose idea of spiritual warfare is claiming a parking space.

This is the person Jesus warned us about in Matthew 13:20, “But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; 21 yet he has no root in himself, but endures only for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles.”

The shocking thing will not just be how many entitled believers will stumble, but how little it will take to make them stumble.

Now let’s talk about escapism. The world that vessels like Billy Graham, Oral Roberts, Kenneth Hagin, Steve Hill, and yes, David Wilkerson warned us about is here. The world that your favorite pulpit babysitter promised would never come—came anyway.

We didn’t escape. We have already witnessed this mass tragedy. Life has taken a turn in these United States that many churchgoers never believed could or would happen. There has been a falling away: because so many were ignorant, so many were offended.

Even many of the Christians who remained faithful, express their escapist denial in many ways. Instead of searching the scriptures for truth, they delve even deeper into teachings that now look silly. They want more materialism; they want more entitlement; they plunge into more false teachings and false ways. They go heavier into emotionalism. Their escapism is expressed in a sanctimonious tone, and then they lie about their reasons for believing they will escape all suffering.  They say we must stay out of politics and not choose sides, even as it has become undeniable that we must take a stand. Instead, they bury their head in the sand and are oblivious as evil takes away our freedom and our children’s future.

Escapism is what gives them a form of godliness, but they deny the power thereof. Denial is why they imitate New Age teachings and make prophecy into a kind of game.But David Wilkerson also saw something else: A fresh and mighty move of the Spirit. He saw Jesus pulling people aside to enter into a close relationship with Him, and to instill in them the power needed to save this nation.  He said, “God is revealing to all praying people that a glorious new work of the Spirit is about to break forth. God is going to shake everything that can be shaken. He will tear down the old political, backslidden, ecclesiastical system. He will disown the formal, super-church structure. He will chase out of His presence all those who are engaging in self-promoting ministries.”

Many will fall, but many will rise to levels of power and usefulness that are astounding. God not only knew the insanity of today was coming—He took steps to prepare a special relationship that would produce special powers in His Children.  You already know who you are.

God is taking you aside to give you nation-saving power and skills. All glory to His Name!

 

Still can’t support Trump?

You’re a Christian who still can’t support Trump? Let me share this fact with you: The people who hate Trump also hate you. They hate your faith. They hate your Bible. They hate your values. They hate Israel. They hate the Constitution and truth be told, they hate America. They hate you even if you don’t support Trump. They will hate you after Trump is gone.

They hated these things all along, only you weren’t supposed to know. You were supposed to be introduced to their radical agenda on the installment plan. But now they are in a frenzy and are throwing their gradual timetable to the wind and rushing everything. They are rushing: drag queens into story hours, gender bending subject matter into grammar schools, radical abortion policies, gun control and censorship. So, what’s their hurry? They are in a rage—such a rage, that they will openly refuse to stand up for the National Anthem and even chant their hatred against the highest office in the land at baseball games.

Two things happened that blew their cover.  Obama failed and Trump succeeded. None of that was supposed to happen. This is because the true socialist believes the only reason socialism has always failed is because “real socialism” has never been tried correctly. Every time it fails, they regroup and try again. They refuse to see that Socialism has imploded because it is a terrible system responsible for killing 100 million people in the last 100 years.

When Obama’s socialism failed, they put Hillary forward, hoping she would do the job. Trump was not supposed to win. His victory destroyed their plans. His presidency enraged them so deeply, they flew into a rage and started saying everything out loud that they had tried to keep a secret. They were forced into springing their trap early.

Again, they didn’t just start hating you when Trump won. They have hated you all along. You just weren’t supposed to find out so soon. It wasn’t their first choice to start censoring blogs, books, and speakers, but after Trump blew their cover, he drove them into a frenzy. Now they are out of control, spewing venom like a spitting cobra on drugs. The demented members of the ‘party of death’ are breaking every rule of free speech and tolerance. And they must be stopped.

I am amazed at how many Christians still do not stand with Trump. I hear the strangest excuses every day. I am curious to know how Trump can ‘hurt their feelings,’ while at the same time the hatred for God, tyranny, lies, and outrageous lawlessness of the Left doesn’t seem to bother them.

We must never spiritualize cowardice. We must never be confused about our duty. Our duty is to stop evil. “For this purpose was the Son of God manifest, to destroy the works of the evil one.”  And if there ever was a party of evil, it is the Socialist Party, formerly known as the Democratic Party.  God has placed Donald Trump in the Oval Office to be a wrecking ball, but he is not the one who is trying to wreck the church, Israel, freedom, marriage, or morality.

Believers who tell me they can’t support him whine, complain, and get holier-than-thou but never offer an alternative. Why? Because there is no alternative. When you tell me, “I am not going to vote for the lesser of two evils”, you are deflecting. Your non-vote is helping to assure that evil will prevail.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Not to vote for Trump empowers the people who hate you and your children. If they ever succeed in all their plans to change our precious land of the free into a socialist state, it is game-over for the last truly free country on earth. Stand up for liberty, pray for those in Washington, and vote for those who love America. We as believers can and must turn this nation back to God!

THIS MAN IS INSULTING YOUR INTELLIGENCE

This man is insulting your intelligence

There are times when Christians especially need to use their brains. Now is one of those times, because Pete Buttigieg is insulting your intelligence.

He wants you to be tolerant. He wants you to be accepting. He wants you to overlook, dismiss and deny what is plainly set before you. He doesn’t want you to believe your eyes. He is the embodiment of ‘what you see is what you will not get.’

Here are three ways he is treating you as if you are stupid.

  1. He believes you are too stupid to remember the disaster of electing someone who has never accomplished a thing. In other words, he wants you to forget Barack Obama. Obama is why we should not vote for Buttigieg. We already tried this. We’ve already had a President with no proven leadership skills.

We’ve already had the mouthful of high sounding platitudes with nothing to back them up. We’ve already tried the ‘Hopey, Changey’ lie. Remember how Obama promised to restore the oceans and heal the earth?

We fell for the warm and fuzzy feeling. We’ve already tried the new that made us look hip and open minded. We’ve already suffered through the messianic community organizer—why would we endure the robot mayor of Westworld?

Mayor Pete is more algorithm than human. He is the carefully worded non-statement, non-position— except for the go-to, catch-all statement of every candidate on the Left: “I am running to defeat Trump.”

We have no idea what he believes. His only conviction, is to have no convictions.

  1. He thinks you are too stupid to see he is a walking contradiction. He claims to be a Christian, and yet condones two things that the Bible deems abhorrent. I will confront one of them: He has a radical view of abortion. He believes a fetus is not a human being, until it breathes. He believes he can prove this from the Bible. Think of it… a child can be murdered, until it takes its first breath!

Here are five passages from the Bible that describe babies in their mother’s womb:

“Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, and the One who formed you from the womb, ‘I, the LORD, am the maker of all things, stretching out the heavens by Myself, and spreading out the earth all alone . . .’” (Isaiah 44:24).

David wrote: “You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works and that, my soul knows well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret and skillfully wrought in the dark of the womb. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed, and in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them” (Psalm 139:13-16).

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations” (Jeremiah 1:5).

But when He who had set me apart before I was born, and had called me through His grace . . .” (Galatians 1:15).

“Behold, children are a gift of the LORD; they are a reward from Him” (Psalm 127:3).

  1. He thinks you are too stupid to see that he is not a moderate—when he is, in fact, a radical. Pete Buttigieg is trying to be the cure for Bernie Sanders. He is telling us that he is the moderate Democrat who will appeal to the center. This is a total lie.

As Mike Huckabee observed, “Buttigieg is even more radical when it comes to criminal justice reform, pledging to “ensure more people are free, by significantly reducing the number of people incarcerated in the United States at both the federal and state level by 50%.”

Huckabee went on, “Between jails and prisons, that would mean about 1.1 million convicted criminals released into American communities. They wouldn’t all be “non-violent drug offenders,” either – though Buttigieg is saying that as President he would decriminalize possession of all drugs, including meth and heroin.” https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/mike-huckabee-pete-buttigieg-is-no-moderate-all-dem-presidential-candidates-embrace-radical-policies

HE WOULD MAKE HEROIN LEGAL.

What else is Buttigieg hiding? Mayor Pete not only embraces unfettered illegal immigration, but actually wants to encourage more of it.

He wants amnesty for all 11 million illegal immigrants. He wants you to pay for their healthcare. He is for decriminalizing illegal immigration altogether.

Buttigieg even wants to create a new “community renewal visa” to funnel cheap foreign labor right into the areas where American citizens are struggling most for jobs and higher wages.

Pete is trying to con you. He thinks you’re too dumb to see it. But he is wrong…

Still can’t support Trump?

You’re a Christian who still can’t support Trump? Let me share this fact with you: The people who hate Trump also hate you. They hate your faith. They hate your Bible. They hate your values. They hate Israel. They hate the Constitution and truth be told, they hate America. They hate you even if you don’t support Trump. They will hate you after Trump is gone.

I dare you to reread his words, go back and watch his videos, they are still on YouTube. David will come across completely different to you now. Now that libraries are bringing in drag queens to read to children. Now that abortion is no longer just a ‘right,’ but a cause for celebration. Now that our halls of power are sewers of falsehood, betrayal, ambition, greed, and lust, and now that the very fabric of civilized society is unraveling.

I dare you to call him legalistic, now that you can see that exactly what he predicted is happening.  Now that you see churches have abandoned the Bible.  Now that every day you hear of one more minister condoning materialism and promoting a ‘cheap grace’ that covers lust. Disdaining holiness and denying the existence of Hell. Just as he predicted, there is an epidemic of preachers who are addicted to drugs, alcohol, and pornography.

Our young daughters have unwelcome transgender visitors in the girl’s restroom at school.  We are a nation of drug addicts. Tens of thousands die every year from opioids.

The bane of Modern Christianity can be summed up in just 2 words: Entitlement and Escapism.

Go back with me to a time before all this madness, and see when a sense of entitlement began to infect the church.

No one got saved in the early church because they were promised a lavish life. Each convert knew from the jump they would pay a price for following Jesus. They embraced Christ because something real happened to them. They knew—beyond knowing—that He was the Truth and the Life.  Knowing Him was infinitely worth the cost. All they wanted was Jesus.

It is ironic that we tend to feel sorry for them, when in fact they would pity us! Yes, they were persecuted, but God was real in them. Their clarity unlocked something most of us do not have: inexpressible peace and joy.

Entitlement rolled into church like a Trojan horse. Certain preachers, like all good marketers, considered true discipleship a hard sell, so they replaced it with perks, inducements and flattery. Church became one giant participation trophy. The unspoken boast was, “What have we to do with self-denial? What have we to prepare for?” We as American Christians became too good for suffering. That was for other people, in other nations.

What edge did believers in the first century have over us? A massive one. They could survive anything that they encountered, whereas many today will be taken out the moment something happens that their pastor said God would never let happen.

Since ancient Christians expected to suffer, suffering never threw them for a loop. It never dawned on them that they would escape trials and tribulations. Because of that, they had a singular power that we don’t: the power to glory and thrive in evil times.  Compare that with today’s Christian whose idea of spiritual warfare is claiming a parking space.

This is the person Jesus warned us about in Matthew 13:20, “But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; 21 yet he has no root in himself, but endures only for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles.”

The shocking thing will not just be how many entitled believers will stumble, but how little it will take to make them stumble.

Now let’s talk about escapism. The world that vessels like Billy Graham, Oral Roberts, Kenneth Hagin, Steve Hill, and yes, David Wilkerson warned us about is here. The world that your favorite pulpit babysitter promised would never come—came anyway.

We didn’t escape. We have already witnessed this mass tragedy. Life has taken a turn in these United States that many churchgoers never believed could or would happen. There has been a falling away: because so many were ignorant, so many were offended.

Even many of the Christians who remained faithful, express their escapist denial in many ways. Instead of searching the scriptures for truth, they delve even deeper into teachings that now look silly. They want more materialism; they want more entitlement; they plunge into more false teachings and false ways. They go heavier into emotionalism. Their escapism is expressed in a sanctimonious tone, and then they lie about their reasons for believing they will escape all suffering.  They say we must stay out of politics and not choose sides, even as it has become undeniable that we must take a stand. Instead, they bury their head in the sand and are oblivious as evil takes away our freedom and our children’s future.

Escapism is what gives them a form of godliness, but they deny the power thereof. Denial is why they imitate New Age teachings and make prophecy into a kind of game.But David Wilkerson also saw something else: A fresh and mighty move of the Spirit. He saw Jesus pulling people aside to enter into a close relationship with Him, and to instill in them the power needed to save this nation.  He said, “God is revealing to all praying people that a glorious new work of the Spirit is about to break forth. God is going to shake everything that can be shaken. He will tear down the old political, backslidden, ecclesiastical system. He will disown the formal, super-church structure. He will chase out of His presence all those who are engaging in self-promoting ministries.”

Many will fall, but many will rise to levels of power and usefulness that are astounding. God not only knew the insanity of today was coming—He took steps to prepare a special relationship that would produce special powers in His Children.  You already know who you are.

God is taking you aside to give you nation-saving power and skills. All glory to His Name!

 

The best thing I ever heard about Christmas

What is the best thing I ever heard about Christmas, you ask?  How can anyone adequately answer that question?  The best music ever written was written for Christmas.  The finest art ever created pays homage to that holy night.

It has moved writers…or rather, it has seized them.  Billions of words have been dedicated to it.  When reason screams, “Don’t write anymore!” Christmas moves the foolhardy to try again and find some fresh meaning contained in the most often told story in history.

The power of Christmas turns children into righteous grownups.  Then it turns righteous grownups back into children.

A testament to its glory is the cosmic grudge Satan bears against Christmas.  He never leaves it alone.  He must commercialize it.  And, in one instance he grew so desperate to harm it that he used some misguided ministers to ban it in England, because they thought Christmas was carnal!  The London Times didn’t mention Christmas for 10 years!

Then in 1843, Charles Dickens wrote the story of Scrooge, and Christmas was back.  Here, is a passage from A Christmas Carol. It is one of the best descriptions of Christmas ever penned:

“But I am sure I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round — apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from thatas a good time: a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time: the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.”

However, no musician, no orator, and no artist, no writer (including Dickens), can touch the best thing I ever heard about Christmas.

The reason is that the words were forged in heaven by God Himself.  It was a note sent on ahead to explain what He meant by sending His Son to earth.

He tenderly crafted what should be said.  Then God did what every good writer must do—He made it concise.  He compressed an eternity of meaning into short, simple phrases.

Then he chose messengers whom He solemnly charged to speak these matchless words.  Relive with me that night when the best words ever spoken about Christmas were given to man.

Luke 2:8, “Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: you will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:  14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!””

Christmas says, “Do not be afraid of the supernatural!”   The angels knew humans are terrified when they appear.  Note that they often preface their message with, “Fear not!” God wants us to know that it is a normal part of the life of the righteous to see signs and wonders.  Don’t be afraid of needing miracles.  Don’t be startled by the way God answers your prayers.

Don’t let the package fool you.  Don’t let the fierceness of evil discourage you.  The mission will not be thwarted.

Not only is the supernatural normal—it is good news!  When the Holy Spirit begins to move in a sedate church, the pastor should recognize that it is not an emotional thing, or a heretical thing, but a glorious thing!  It is a heavenly takeover that will impel the work of God forward.  Miracles are not a menace.  They are the perfect solution.

“This will be to all people.”  Christmas will not stop until it has achieved its goal. Nothing can stop the conquering march of the Son of God.  Don’t let the package fool you.  Don’t let the fierceness of evil discourage you.  The mission will not be thwarted.  The kingdom of this world will become the Kingdom of our God and of His Christ.  And He shall reign forever and ever!

“Christmas has never been convenient.  It never asks for an appointment.  It barges in and pulls you into the dance.  It grabs you by the soul and sets it to singing.” 

This Holy Child is the perfect gift from God to you.  God has given you His best.  He has come because of your need.   Here is the absolute answer to mankind’s curse.  And this cure has no side effects!  This solution does not miss the mark.  It is for you, and it is from Someone Who knows everything about you.

Break out in Joy! Use joy as a weapon. Use joy for renewed strength.  Let joy do its job.  Don’t restrain joy because of the evil around you.  Release joy because of the evil around you!

Christmas has never been convenient.  It never asks for an appointment.  It barges in and pulls you into the dance.  It grabs you by the soul and sets it to singing.  It is not that you can’t fight Christmas…it’s that you shouldn’t!  And that is the best thing I ever heard about Christmas.   Merry Christmas!

THIS WILL KILL YOUR FEAR

Today you find yourself facing threats that were unimaginable just 10 years ago.  Changes are dizzying. Political and moral evil is on the march. The child of God navigates a world that is explosive.

Do you have children and grandchildren who depend on you?  That makes it all the more difficult. You wonder what will happen to them.  You pray, “Lord, how can I protect them in such a violent time?”

Our souls are vexed by the parading of evil, perversion, and bloodshed. What was once in the back alleys is now front and center for all to see.

For this and many other reasons, we need something fresh and unshakable.  We need whatever it was Daniel had in the lion’s den.  We need authority to open prison doors.  We need courage that conquers the future even before we get there.  We must walk a walk that conquers sickness, dwindling resources, and any sudden attack on our soul.

We also need to see the tactics of Satan. He knows his time is short, he is racing to take as many down with him as he can.

Powerful preaching will only take us so far.  Worship music may quell dismaying emotions temporarily, but we need something more—something unshakable in the core of our being.  We need an anchor that holds us, no matter what.

What do we need? What fear-killing insight should burn in our soul?

It’s this: Imagine if you could hear Jesus praying for you. Imagine what that would mean to you. Imagine how that can kill your fear of any shocking attacks that come?  Imagine being transported in a vision, and beholding Jesus mentioning your name. Imagine hearing Him taking your needs, your burdens, and your cares directly to the Father.

Stop right now.  Open your heart wide. Let me give you the fear-killing facts about  Jesus praying for you:

Jesus started praying for you the instant you got saved.  The world can’t enjoy the benefit of His prayers, but we as believers can.  John17:9, “I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.”

Jesus will never stop praying for you. Hebrews 7:25, “Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”

Can you see Him? Right now He is lifting your situation before the Father in unending prayer.

Jesus is asking the Father to protect you from Satan.  John 17:15, “I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.”

Jesus has prayed in advance of your greatest hour of testing, just as He did for Peter.  Luke 22:32, “But I have prayed for you (Peter), that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”

Here is the most important fact about Jesus’ praying for you: He says you are His child.  Let’s take a closer look at what that means.

His love for you is not just tender—it’s fierce.

Consider the momma grizzly as she snuggles her cub.  She is the essence of tender love.  Now, try to come between her and her cub. The loving mom instantly becomes the most terrifying creature on earth.  She will stop at nothing to protect her cub. Both are expressions of the same love…a love God but in her.

The same Jesus who comforts you with unmatched tenderness turns His wrath on the evil one when you are threatened.  It would be breathtaking to see the contrast in His intercession before the Father when you need comfort, and when you need to be rescued from the attack of the evil one.

Jesus will not let anything come between you and Him.  Paul said it this way: Romans 8:38, “For I am fully convinced that neither death nor life, nor angels nor demons, nor the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

If you could hear how Jesus is praying for you right now, you would not fear a million enemies.

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.”
