TAKING AUTHORITY OVER WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES

What do you call it when politicians ram through legislation without informing the public? What do you call it when they attack those with honest questions?  What do you call it when politicians say their new laws protect small groups when in fact they only punish their political enemies?

What should we call it when Senators manipulate language to vilify anyone who disagrees with their agenda?  And finally, what should we call it when the real goal is not equality, justice, or truth, but an attempt to control the people?  You call it war.

The sooner you realize they have declared war on you and those you love; the sooner you can take appropriate action.  Many Christians have never been taught spiritual warfare.  In this user friendly era the language of war is scarce and  unwelcome.

Now that we are losing our freedoms—now that the vile behavior of the back alley is on main street—now that families see the culture absorbing the faith of their children—believers are open to studying authority over Satan.

Ephesians 6: 10-13 says “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.   For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

See where it says “wiles of the devil?” That is what is happening in Sacramento.  The tangled web of deceit and bias is clearly the wile of the devil.  See where it says “withstand in the evil day?”  That day has come to California.   This is the day for you—the willing warrior to be used by God.  Today, you put on all the armor of God.

It is obvious why believers in California should be interested in the damage Sacramento is doing but why should those of you not from California be alarmed?

A major article came out that said America should be ruled by one party—the Democratic Party.  At any other time, we could ignore such babbling but…Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey called the article “a great read.”  The captains of social media lean far left and wholeheartedly believe in this takeover of America.  Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and most social media have been censoring Conservatives and Christians for years even though they deny it.  Now, the voices of Christian Conservatives are being purged from all media.  All of this is pouring out of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Way too many ministers taught easy believism and made Christians apathetic when they needed to take action.   Too many preachers today remind us, “it’s all in God’s hands.” While that is a comforting truth it is not the one we need right now.  That’s been an excuse to be passive and missing in action.

But everywhere you look in the Bible it is against passivity and advocates action: “fight the good fight of faith…” “Endure hardness as a good soldier…” “Resist the devil…” “Take the sword of the Spirit…”

It is urgent that we pray in a way we have never prayed before.  Stand between heaven and earth as a true intercessor.  Invoke the Name above all Names to get to the very Throne of God with your petition.  Do what Moses did when he raised the rod of Aaron over the battle. When you pray, pray violently, pray exactingly, detailing the damage you want done and where you want it done. By the Spirit, speak directly to evil powers. Call them out and cast them down.  Cut their power over California.

Here is the great promise: When God sees someone take up the mighty weapons of God—in the Name of Jesus—and attempt the impossible—God will muster all of the resources of heaven to bring that someone total victory.

It is time to preach with more boldness and miracles than ever before.  At the first attempt to silence the church Peter prayed this prayer:  Acts 4:29,30 says, “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your Holy Servant Jesus.”

We cannot escape the urgency of revival in California.  California in its current condition can pull the nation down with it…but  revivals here have always overflowed America.

My last words are to all voting age Christians in California: it is time to call your State Senator on Monday and at least before Thursday when they vote on California Assembly Bill 2943 that will lead to banning the Bible in California.  WE MUST ACT BEFORE THURSDAY.

When you email or call your Senator be firm but polite. Tell them you will be voting in the next election and that you will be campaigning for politicians who reflect your values.

Preach as if they are stealing your country

Are you preaching to what your people actually face?  Their faith is costing them their jobs.  Their children are being persecuted at school.  Their college is banning their Christian clubs.
When they tell us they want to silence the church—when they tell us their opinion is the only one allowed—when disagreeing will cost you your rights, your job, and even your life—when they burn buildings, protect killers, and convict innocent people—the church should have no response?  Do we sit back and just give away our freedom of religion and speech?
Liberals want a New American Civil War.  They want one party rule.  They say the Republican Party, and Evangelical Christians must be stripped of power.  They want to make America into California.
Peter Leyden, CEO of new media startup Reinvent, and Ruy Teixeira, Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, said this in an article entitled The Great Lesson of California in America’s New Civil War.
They say, “What about the need for checks and balances?  Many Americans might be wary of trusting a political environment where one party has complete control of political power.”
They insist that one party rule is an utter necessity: “America can’t afford more political paralysis. One side or the other must win. This is a civil war that can be won without firing a shot. But it is a fundamental conflict between two worldviews that must be resolved in short order.”  Are these wacko ideas from the fringe?  No, they are mainstream leftist ideology.  We are in a moral civil war.  How shall we preach in moral civil war?
There is a story of tyranny that is our model for this moment.  Terrorists took control of a city and demanded that the entire city become slaves or face death.  It gets worse.  Just to stay alive every man, woman, and child had to agree to have their right eye removed.
The elders of the city begged for them to hold off 7 days so they could send messengers to get help.  Since the terrorists were spoiling for a fight they agreed.
1 Samuel 11:3 is one of the most chilling verses in scripture because it shows the unimaginable horror the people felt: “Then the elders of Jabesh said to him, ‘Hold off for seven days, that we may send messengers to all the territory of Israel.  And then, if there is no one to save us, we will come out to you.’”
Put yourself in the place of those men facing the disfigurement of their wives and children.  If you were one of those elders tasked with choosing messengers—what kind of messengers would you choose?  Who would you choose to go get help?
You would not pick smooth talking salesmen.  You would not want a wordsmith or an entertainer.  You dare not send a psychologist or a life coach.
They had to go get an army.  They had to make people cry and get angry.  They had to convince people—who might believe this was not their fight—to take a stand.
The Bible says they went to Gibeah where King Saul was, and everyone who heard them began to weep.  King Saul was filled with holy rage and galvanized the nation to save the people of Jabesh Gilead in a mighty victory.
Who will save us from the disfigurement of America, and the church, by the left?  What kind of preaching shall we choose to loosen the grip of tyranny and regain our freedom?  The same kind of messengers the elders of Jabesh Gilead choose.
The Holy Spirit is leading preachers to adjust to the new, real world.  He is sending out an urgent appeal: Preach as if they are stealing your country…because they are.  Preach as if your people are suffering under persecution because they are.  If you have the heart, God will give you the words.  Time is running out.

ARE CHRISTIANS HYPOCRITES TO STAND WITH TRUMP?

A strange thing has happened to Democrats.  They suddenly discovered adultery is a sin.  Not only that, they now believe it is grounds for a president to be impeached.

Because he is a billboard for liberal hypocrisy, Bill Clinton is scurrying away hoping you won’t see him.  He remembers when Democrats defended him for ongoing adultery (not something that happened 12 years ago.)  He remembers when the New York Times screamed that it was no one’s business when consenting adults have sex.

He remembers when (as recently as 2016) feminists thought his rapes were okay.   Wonkette feminist writer Rebecca Schoenkopf thinks Bill Clinton probably raped Juanita Broaddrick back in 1978 — but that doesn’t make him a bad person.

In a post published in response to Broaddrick’s recent interview about the alleged attack, Schoenkopf explained Bill probably just didn’t know that forcing himself upon a woman was a no-no — because apparently no one told men not to rape 30 years ago.

“I can absolutely see Bill Clinton doing this (then, not now) and not even thinking of it as rape, but thinking of it as dominant, alpha sex,” Schoenkopf writes. “I can see a LOT of men doing that during that time period, before we started telling them in the ’80s, ‘hey, that is rape, do not do that.’ I can see YOUR NICE GRANDPA doing that, back then.”

How did Democrats go from one extreme to another?  How did they go from anything goes to nothing goes—and, there is no statute of limitations on what might have gone on.  How did they go from saying rape is okay for Clinton, to falsely accusing Trump of rape?   Just when you thought they could not get any richer…

Bill Clinton opposed illegal immigration.  Bill Clinton made citizenship a question on the census questionnaire.  Democrats howl and sue against all of this now.  And now…

The all-time double standard bearers—the supreme practitioners of hypocrisy, call Christians hypocrites for backing Trump.

Let me assure you of something.  If Trump said, he was a Christ follower, and he was caught cheating on his wife as president, I would be first in line to rebuke the immorality.  That has not happened.  There’s as much evidence for that as there is for Russian collusion.

I don’t believe Christians who support Trump will give him a pass if he behaves like, say…Bill Clinton.   Let me prove it to you in a way that some will hate me for: look at what happened in Alabama. Even if you believe that Judge Roy Moore was railroaded—and there is evidence of that—many Christians could not vote for him because of the moral shadow cast on him.

 Again, the real hypocrites gave a pass to president Bill Clinton who defiled the office while in office, but believe Trump should be impeached for what he did years before he was in office.

It’s time to tell you the most important thing I have learned since my injury

 

Every day since my injury I have written an original blog.  It’s one way I make the devil pay for attacking me.  This the is one I have been waiting to post.  But there’s a catch.
The catch is not a lot of people read about this subject.  This should not surprise us. Since this is the most powerful way to stop Lucifer, he is trying to bury its very existence.  So, if no one wants to hear it, then what made me go ahead and write it?  You did.

I have been profoundly moved and encouraged by the growing hunger for the deep things of God in our readers.  So what is the most important thing?

To get our answer we must first reach a conclusion about America.  Arthur Matthew said, “The central influences of life are being taken over by men from the bottom levels of society in contrast to earlier generations. God’s authority in society is mediated from the top in the punishing of evil and the rewarding of good.  But when control is taken over by the men at the bottom, we may be sure that the devil is in it.”

Satan is behind the marches, the media bias, the deepening immorality.  The men from the bottom of levels have seized this moment to erase Judeo-Christian values.  All of it—taking the guns, destroying marriage, voter fraud, abortion, open borders, are just ploys to bring America under the control of demonic power.

Yes, I am a political conservative.  I comment on all those subjects. But I know that ultimately, I must deliver a direct blow to Satan and his minions, by the power of the Holy Spirit, or I will never see America set free.  The crisis is the church doesn’t know how to do this.
We wrestle not with flesh and blood but with principalities and powers.  Sadly, the church hardly wrestles at all.  You know that most Christians around you have no clue how to oppose or pray down the powers that control our culture.  I hope you want to learn how—because that my friend is the most important thing I have learned.

Many have come to rely on this blog for different reasons.  I am convinced that the greatest service this blog can provide is only now beginning to appear.

It came as I was angry and frustrated spending so much time on my back.  I felt helpless to doing anything important—I needed to get back in the battle.  The Holy Spirit said I could do the most important thing I have ever done—right here in this room.

I could remove demonic barriers.  I could disrupt evil plans from my room.  But strongholds and barriers are not removed by God’s omnipotence until the believer takes the initiative and stands his ground in the heavenly places to engage the powers of evil that are causing our national perversion—the forces that are causing all the misery in our culture. 

Those who can take their stand between heaven and hell and pray—not like we are praying now, but praying with the full realization of the Cross, and the victory Jesus won there.
Arthur Matthew describes it this way:  “they take their position in Christ in the heavenlies and wrestle with and withstand the powers of evil that are manipulating the willing puppets on the streets.”

The kind of resistance that drives Satan back—that cuts off the supply of his puppets here on earth—brings into confusion those who would do us harm, cannot be done arrogantly.

Listen to more of Matthews:
Such resistance against supernatural powers is not done boastfully or presumptuously, but humbly as befits those who realize that they have no might in themselves and t they owe everything to the grace and power of God. The exercise is not a call for self-advertisement as some would make it. It is the ordained function of those who are in Christ and, I think we should add, of those who are filled with the Spirit. God does not commission men not filled with the Spirit to fight his battles. Paul was filled with the Holy Spirit when he confronted Elymas the sorcerer and exposed the devil’s attack and defeated him (Acts 13:9). It is not to be passed over that the command to be filled with the Spirit comes in the context of the Christian’s walk on earth and his warfare in the heavenlies.

I am learning to cut off the devil’s power through prayer—prayer in a new and living way for America.  I believe that this is what you crave and together we can unleash this great power of prevailing prayer right now.

Trump will win by a landslide in 2020. Liberals are the ones saying this, and that explains everything. 

The bombshell admission came last week on MSNBC.  New York uber-liberal Donny Deutsch said, “Trump will be re-elected in 2020 by a landslide.”  That—while amazing—is not the bomb.  It’s what he said next: “That’s why Trump must be removed from office now.” 

As Wayne Allyn Root put it: “Donny revealed what liberals are all thinking, deep down. Trump is a lock for re-election by a wide margin. As Deutsch admitted, that’s why he must be stopped now.

Crazed liberals scream for his removal … impeachment … even assassination. Because they know Trump is succeeding. He is effective, he is erasing Barack Obama and he is fundamentally changing America back to a conservative, capitalist nation. They know they can’t stop him at the ballot box, so they have decided they have to stop him any other way they can — even resorting to violence, conspiracy and sedition.”

Did you see the words, violence, conspiracy, sedition…even assassination?

This explains everything.  It explains why CNN sent reporters to Thailand to interview prostitutes who “may have dirt on Trump.”  It explains why Hillary is not being investigated for Russian collusion.  It shows why the left will stop at nothing to get him out now.

Last December my spirit was deeply disturbed.  I sought relief in intercession.  My thoughts turned toward the President.  I wrote this to our partners in late December: “A massive disruption, is planned within the next 90 days.  There will be a major move against the president by both Democrats and Republicans.  In short, you will see the most vicious assaults—on our freedoms, our faith, and our children—you have ever seen.”  Those 90 days are up March 24th—the day of a massive march for gun control.

What I didn’t know is why the left lost its mind.  Now I do.  It is the certain reelection of Donald Trump.  It is hideous to think what they might do.  It is disgusting that they don’t care if Trump makes life better for Americans—that’s how deranged they truly are.  But there is a positive to this.

Gideon asked God for one last sign he would defeat the Midianites. It came from the last source he expected: The enemy.  God told Gideon to sneak into the camp of the Midianites—an army as many as the sand of the seashore in number.  He arrived at the right tent in time to hear this: Judges 7: 13 “Gideon crept up to one of the tents just as a man inside had wakened from a nightmare and was telling his tent-mate about it.

“I had this strange dream,” he was saying, “and there was this huge loaf of barley bread that came tumbling down into our camp. It hit our tent and knocked it flat!” 14 The other soldier replied, “Your dream can mean only one thing! Gideon, the son of Joash, the Israeli, is going to come and massacre all the allied forces of Midian!” 15 When Gideon heard the dream and the interpretation, all he could do was just stand there worshiping God! Then he returned to his men and shouted, ‘Get up! For the Lord is going to use you to conquer all the vast armies of Midian!’”

Beloved, the enemy is admitting reelection.  We should rejoice but we should also be interceding for our president to be protected form whatever is coming.  Now you know what is going on and how to pray.

WHY BIG GOVERNMENT IS OF SATAN

Look at Proverbs 28:2 “When a country is rebellious, it has many rulers, but a ruler with discernment and knowledge maintains order.”  See anything interesting in there?  To a secular progressive the only thing that matters is size. The cure for everything is to add an agency, or a new regulation.

Take the current frenzy to take away all the guns.  It is a sugar pill.  It is a placebo for the lazy thinker.  Imagine a mind that says, if we add a gun ban it will make up for cowardly sheriffs who won’t do their jobs—a head sheriff who resembles Sargent O’Rourke of F Troop—a mental health system that lacks, well, mental health, and an FBI that ignores red flags like a blind bull.

The secular progressive doesn’t need reason…they need a frightened teenager to manipulate.  They need an emotional town hall meeting that offers zero solutions in high pitched self-righteousness.  They need to appear to do something.

Take away all the guns and send in the clowns.  Anyone feel safe yet?  A deranged mind might just say, “shoot, now I have use a car.”  Ignore the man behind the curtain who pontificates about “the need” for whatever—but doesn’t want you to see how nothing they do works.

Open borders serve the same purpose.  Every year, we spend 84 billion dollars on all the agencies and services provided for people who wouldn’t even be here if we enforced our laws.  Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is violating federal election laws to get reelected.  He is giving I.D.s to illegal aliens so they can vote for him.   Libby Schaaf Mayor of Oakland is guilty of obstruction by warning 800 illegals with criminal records that a raid was coming.   This should enrage you.  It means foreigners can now elect our leaders.  It means cities can protect criminals.

Dear wispy believer who thinks it is wrong to have a political opinion.  They are after your freedom. They want to shut down your church—because faith, like the Second Amendment and free and legal elections prevent them from taking total control.  That is why these blogs are not a violation of my call to preach the Gospel–they are a vital part of telling the truth while I still can.  You must see that that this national fever to change our laws is Satanic not just bad politics.

They are way too smart to just admit they want to remove the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  No, they won’t say  “burn the Constitution.”  They would smother it in bureaucracy, and wrap red tape around its throat and choke it to death.  Here’s the bottom line:

Bring your ear closer to this blog: THEY DON’T WANT TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM.  THEY WANT TO STAY IN POWER!  They want to cover their incompetence, they want to keep their funding, they want to keep the corruption going.  They want to change our government completely.

 

They refer to our Founding Fathers as white male slave owners.  What they won’t tell you is the turmoil the Fathers felt about slavery.  How they even believed God was going to judge the nation for slavery.   They saw no way to abolish it without war.  And they did fight a war to rid the curse, and it cost 700,000 men their lives.

Leftists sired a new form of slavery: Government dependency.  Our rotting inner cities are the new plantation where breathtaking corruption keeps telling the poor to vote for more slavery.  At least the Founding Fathers felt a pang of guilt—progressives do not.

Wake up! The task before all believers is to prevent our children and grandchildren from growing up in a socialist prison.  Satan is back of all this.  He wants America to implode—to be crushed under the weight of secular progressive expansion—an idiocracy of loony universities, and a spoon-fed, over-medicated, compliant, constituency that is being fattened for the slaughter.

If the church will understand the threat and see her duty, we have great hope as a nation.  I don’t want puny government that can’t keep us safe—what I want is what the last part of the verse promises: “But a ruler with discernment and knowledge maintains order.”  We can maintain order with a lot less government.

If we empower leaders with wisdom, if we enforce laws we already have, if we can smoke out corruption, and if we return to the God who made America Great, we can bring equality, safety, and progress for a fraction of the cost and through a few good, godly leaders.

DON’T YOU KNOW ME I’M YOUR NATIVE SON

Good morning America how are you?  Don’t you know me I’m your native son?  The answer for the homeless is no, America doesn’t know you.  And many of our leaders are heaping an insult on you worse than your cold nights on the streets.
Many people believe that America wants to give aid to others rather than their own.
A growing number of Americans have these things to say: “If you are illegal in California, and other sanctuary states, you essentially have more rights than natural born citizens.  You can get healthcare before disoriented veterans who lost limbs fighting for our freedom.   Why?  Because they don’t know how to play the system.”
“Homeless citizens don’t have the advocacy groups you do.  No one is protesting for homeless Americans—especially homeless children.  You can commit crimes that would put Americans in jail.  The proof came when Los Angeles authorities helped shield convicted felons who were here illegally until ICE was finally able to arrest 221 of them.  They do not offer that buffer to homeless Americans.”
“Our children must pay for college you get it free.  Democrats will make sure you get a driver’s license.”
“In Silicon Valley, laid off Americans are forced to train their foreign replacements—yes, that’s right—the ones who are taking their jobs.”

“We take billions away from hard working Americans, and pay for all of this for you.  Then sit back and watch many of you protest, screaming at us, waving the flag of your nation—the nation that abandoned you—in our face, and call us intolerant, and racist.”  Average cost is 84 billion a year.
“How can Americans bear to look at Nancy Pelosi, Jorge Ramos or the gaggle of leftist activists?  They favor those who broke the law to get here above those who were born here.”

No nation can victimize their own this way and long survive. These verses portend our doom: Lamentations 5: 1 “Remember, O Lord, what has come upon us; Look, and behold our reproach! 2 Our inheritance has been turned over to aliens, And our houses to foreigners. 3 We have become orphans and waifs; our mothers are like widows.”
Famous pastors—under the influence of some zany theology—side with illegals against their own.  There is nothing righteous about opening our borders without securing it against those who come to steal, rape, murder.  There is nothing noble about letting them sneak back in time and again.

This year, Mario Murillo Ministries allied with Inner City Action, will be flooding the homeless with basic necessities.
Beware you do not make false assumptions about MMM.  While I unapologetically decry the wrong done to homeless American citizens, we do not make any distinction when we are on the streets giving out food and clothing.  We don’t talk about citizenship.  We talk about Christ.  We see every life as a soul for which Jesus died—and that is all we see.
Should people come to America and find opportunity? YES!  Should we put basic demands on them and let them flow through a system of naturalization.  Again Yes!  But without law and order we will destroy hope for those who are born here and for those who are going through proper channels to become Americans.
Sanctuary cities are monsters that kill the hope for both homeless citizens and demoralizes legal immigrants who spent years to become citizens.   We should never have punished innocent people to perpetuate a left wing state.
I am warning lukewarm Christians—silent, comfortable, and with strained necks, looking the other way—this growing menace will touch your life.
This injustice screams to God from the ground.  His eyes are a nation that has chosen to declare war on its own.  The billions squandered buying new votes for the Democratic Party could have cleaned the streets, emptied the homeless camps, hospitalized war vets, and saved children.

For heaven’s sake can you, Mr. and Mrs. Christian form an opinion, brave a conviction and—Lord help us—find a voice?!  Get off the fence!
Remember this Fall, what the Democratic Party has said loud and clear to all Americans: WE CARE ABOUT OTHERS MORE THAN AMERICANS.  Punish the evil doers.  Throw them out of office.  Enough is enough!
The next time you kneel before God, try explaining to Him why you have chosen to be neutral about your own children’s future.  Yes, that’s right…someone is taking their inheritance and giving it to another.
This is where I am supposed to redeem myself with some positive, chicken soup, cuddly closing that comforts you.  The only comfort should come from the fact that you shook off your fear and compromise and rose up  to do the right thing.
