IT IS TIME FOR THE EAGLES TO LEAVE THE TURKEY YARD

It is clear that, as the madness spreads and the church just wrings its hands, it is time for the eagles to leave the turkey-yard.  You know who you are, you who are an eagle.  There’s a fire inside you that you can’t put out.  You are ruined for ‘Church-As-Usual-Incorporated.’

For too long you’ve been told to be a good little birdie.  “Don’t ruffle any feathers!” But you just can’t stomach the stale kernels they toss to you.  You must have fresh meat.  All around you, the turkeys peck at the ground.  But all you can see are the clouds and the sky, where you know you belong.

You long to be home, where the glory is.  Your place is alongside the heroes of faith that changed the course of nations.  “Survival-mode” teaching sickens you.  The idea that tepid happiness is the goal enrages you.

You made the mistake of looking at old youtube.com videos.  You saw Oral Roberts.  You saw Kathryn Kuhlman.  You saw Smith Wigglesworth.  You jumped up and screamed, “But, where are the miracles today!?”

(check out my blog, The Price of God’s Miracle Working Power:  https://wp.me/p1vrzp-53e   )

You made the mistake of listening to old preaching tapes, where you heard men and women preaching holy fire!  They didn’t do monologues. They didn’t do stand-up comedy. They pulled the pin out of Bible verses, and flung them like a grenade to explode into the souls of their audience.  You heard people sobbing at the altars.  You heard them linger until something real and lasting transformed them.

Then something really painful happened to you…you looked at your generation. You saw the national cancer of wickedness.  You saw the insane brainwashing.  You saw the limp-wristed tactics of the church.

You became like David as he stared at the paralyzed army of Israel, cowering before a defiant Goliath.

You cried, “WHY DOESN’T SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING?” 

So, now that you realize that the ‘SOMEBODY’ IS YOU, it is too late for you. The die is cast.  You’ve gone too far to turn back.  You now know too much.  You feel like you should leave before you hurt someone…

You remember the verse, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles.” (Isaiah 40:31).

Prayer is your escape from the prison yard of compromise and mediocrity. We’re not talking about the ‘gobble-gobble prayers’ you heard in the yard—we’re talking about falling before God and waiting upon Him until you come forth as pure gold.

What are we talking about?  We are talking about prayer that heaven can’t resist, and hell can’t stand. The kind of prayer that breaks the grip of ancient demonic strongholds.  Prayer that causes students begin to weep on campus, even though they do not know why.  Prayer that fills people with the Holy Spirit. Prayer that removes fear, and installs unshakable courage to tell a generation the genuine Good News: the mighty Gospel—which is the unapologetic, undeniable, unstoppable power of God!

Eagles dare while turkeys stare!

Eagles are born out of prayer. They spring forth from the hand of God, fully convinced of their destiny and their goal.  Let mistaken millennials protest against the AR-15.  You take hold of John 17:15, “My prayer is not that you take them out of the world, but that you protect them from the evil one.”  That is your battle cry!  You don’t want out.  You know the Lord Jesus will keep you from the evil one! You are ready to soar into any nest of evil and destroy the works of the devil.

Where eagles gather, power is present.  Where eagles gather, the deep purposes of Almighty God are revealed.  Where eagles gather, there’s no self-pity, no encounter sessions, and no hiding in your ‘safe-space.’  When turkeys are transformed into eagles, they are equipped, they are ignited, and they are fitted for war.

Eagles must have a challenge.  They yearn for a cause that will summon up all of their strength, talent, and time.  They want something they can easily imagine doing for the rest of their lives.

 

It’s time for you to fly out of the turkey yard, and never look back!

 

 

 

 

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

George Soros Christians

I want to show you a nasty comment someone posted concerning one of my blogs: “I honestly don’t understand how God-fearing Christians can defend this repugnant, amoral, adulterous, whoremonger, toddler of a President. Jesus fed the hungry, healed the sick, told His followers not to judge. And Trump’s cruelty knows no bounds. Locate your moral compass. It’s failing you right now.”

Let me point out how hypocritical it is for this person to say Jesus’ followers are “not to judge,” while this person proceeds to judge, condemn, and speak evil of the leader of our nation!

Here’s another nasty comment, “Total lies. Any real Christian would not support the evils and sins of this current President. Mario, you and your Fake ministry are all about the money, the root of the devil. You have sold your soul.”

These two comments were written by people who are infiltrators, who go on social media and pose as Christians. The reason they are doing this, is because the church is slowly and finally awakening. More and more believers including Black Americans and Hispanics are realizing that God has put Donald Trump in power for this very hour.

I promise you, those who made these comments are not believers, but infiltrators, who know some church lingo. Their goal is to rattle impressionable Christians. Don’t buy it!  The Left is struggling to gain support among Christians. That is why they have resorted to these tactics.  Their chief narrative is to bring up President Trump’s past.

Recently, I had a message passed on to me from a pastor. The note was from a concerned woman who eloquently, (a little too eloquently), described how dismayed she was by the lack of love among Trump supporters, and she added that the people of God had been fooled for following such a wicked leader. I don’t have space or time to show you how subtle and deceptive her message was. It shook some who read it.

Later, it was revealed that she was not a believer at all, but an activist from a local Islamic and Leftist consortium.  She and others were being trained to insinuate their way into churches and social media, in order to spread anti-Trump lies.

It’s obvious that this is one of many attempts at creating distraction. They are trying to distract the church away from the nation-killing evil that is at the door. If we let voices like these fool us by shaming our faith, it spells doom for America. Trump, like him or hate him, is virtually the last firewall against the Satan inspired villainous policies of the Left.

Another even more subtle approach of these posers is to spread apathy by telling believers that political involvement shows they are guilty of not trusting God.  Some of these deceivers say, “It’s all in God’s hands. Don’t interfere in His work”

Don’t believe them!  And don’t you say you believe it is all in God’s hands while at the same time you oppose the solution He has sent. Trump isn’t our pastor, don’t ask him to do the job of the church.  He is the wrecking ball sent to destroy those ideas that promote hatred for God, Israel, you, and your children.

Just look at the headlines. The Democrat controlled House voted to remove the phrase, “so help me God” from the oath taken by those sworn in to testify. New York legalized killing an unborn child right up to the moment of birth. Kamala Harris, presidential candidate for the Democrat Party, said she would abolish all private health insurance. According to Kaiser, that would wipe out coverage for 49% of Americans…not to mention throwing 500,000 people out of work. Ms. Harris, along with Corey Booker and every single Democrat candidate, also hates your God given right to defend yourself, and would abolish the Second Amendment of the Constitution, leaving an unarmed populace at the mercy of criminals and an all-powerful government.  And by the way, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says, “The world is going to end in 12 years.”

The enemy doesn’t want you to see the disaster that is right now at our door. Satan wants you to fixate on Trump’s past so he can destroy your children’s future. The demonic engine that drives the Left, hides the Socialist world they want for your children and grandchildren.

They don’t want you to see how their Marxist-socialism will tax us into oblivion. Most of all, they don’t want you to see that they are everything they claim they are against.

Here’s how lies become truth: you call in “experts.” You speak your lie with a straight face. Devoid of facts, you command the audience to believe you.  This is all easier when the media never challenges anything you say.

Trump is the racist? Take a deep breath and prepare for what history is going to conclude about many things in our time. They will say the events that excluded whites on campus were racist. That terms like ‘white privilege’—like any other categorical statement that includes a color—is itself racist. They will ask how a nation that elected a black man to its highest office for 8 eight years can be accused of being “systemically racist.”

By the way, this charge of racism is coming to you from the Party that owned all the slaves and that started the Klu Klux Klan.

History will ask the same thing about hate and violence.  An agitated feminist told a black man to take off his MAGA hat “because it makes us fearful.” That’s a statement in search of a fact. You don’t see roving gangs of youth donning MAGA hats and assaulting people in the streets. What you do see is violent Antifa thugs wearing masks and assaulting those who wear those hats.

In fact, you see Nick Sandmann and the young men from Covington High school terrorized and falsely accused because they wore MAGA hats. The lives of these boys have been changed forever. They have been vilified. Their families have received death threats. They’ve been forced to hire an attorney to protect themselves from further slander. The Left is having a veritable field day of violence… and you are worried about Trump’s past?

Ponder the breathtaking hypocrisy and cruelty of Mueller and Comey. How they blatantly ignored the mountain of evidence of treason and obstruction against Hillary Clinton, but nit-pick trivia about Trump and the Russians. The crimes they claim Trump did—but that the Mueller Report proves he didn’t do—are the very ones Hillary did do. It is absolutely mindboggling!

Future thinkers will scratch their head at Leftists who excoriated Trump falsely and accused him of separating children from their parents at our borders, even as these evil liars celebrate that new law I mentioned above that allows a woman to dismember her child in the womb, and even kill her baby at the point of birth.

Questions burn in me:

The noise, smoke and mirrors of today’s propaganda machine, amazes me on so many levels.  The Democrat Party’s hard left turn promises massive new spending. All the free stuff they intend to force on you will bankrupt a nation already drowning in massive debt. When the beast starts eating, do you really believe only the rich will be taxed? Your children will give up most of what they earn to the socialist machine that will hand it over to those who earn nothing. Why wouldn’t we try to stop this?

They know robots will soon replace millions of jobs. Why are they anxious to open our borders to millions of unskilled laborers?  Is it because they need more potential Democrat voters?

In Iran, they just hung a person for being homosexual, but in the Leftist universe it is the Christians, not the radical Muslims, are the real moral bigots. And you worry about standing with Trump?

I could go on forever, and no doubt you could throw in some real zingers I have overlooked. But I need to get to the point I wish to make: you need to take a look at the Left—they can destroy America—and if they are allowed to go on unopposed, they will. What do you think Trump is trying to stop?

We must not look the other way and ignore the doom the Left spells for all we hold sacred. Don’t ignore the changes that have occurred in this man since he began running for President. Most of all don’t let infiltrators posing as Christians dredge up Trump’s past. It is evident to many who knew him that he is not the same man.  Don’t join those who hate him—continue to pray for him! (1 Tim. 2:2).

Your children’s future is far more important than Trump’s past.

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

EVEN FOR DEMOCRATS

The Debate Last night proved once and for all that a Democrat win would be a disaster even for Democrats. Leftists dream of a Trump loss, not realizing how horrendously they would reap what they have sown. The Left has poisoned the well so completely that it will be impossible for a Democrat to govern. A Trump loss would absolutely push millions over the edge, and only God knows what that would look like.

Here are the 3 reasons why it would be a nightmare for Democrats as well as for the rest of us, if Trump were to be defeated:

1. Americans, by the tens of millions will believe the election was rigged.  And, they will adamantly reject the results and force legal action.  Even those who are not currently Trump supporters believe that an elite group of leftists are in control of the social and news media platforms.  We know that they manipulate and censor information.  We know this elite group is fiercely anti-Trump. We know this cadre has the power to rig an election. Google has been caught in a scheme to add millions of votes to the Democrat candidate.  Facebook has leaked the fact that they will choke off Trump ads and shadow ban any post that asks people to vote for Trump.  We already know that CNN, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, and CBS will saturate America with anti-Trump propaganda.

 2. The economy would instantly plunge downward. Does a Democrat really want to oversee the greatest collapse of jobs and wealth since the great depression?  The nation will blame the Democrat Party.

It is one of history’s greatest miscalculations to believe that veering left is what Americans want. Yet, all of the Democrat candidates are falling over each other to be as far left as possible.  The Socialist/LGBTQ/Anti-Israel rants play well to the oxygen deprived audiences of Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, and Bernie Sanders. However, they scare the liver out of the majority of Americans.

If the day were to come when a Democrat takes the oath of office, all that will be seen by millions of Americans, is impending economic disaster.

3. Millions of people will make it their aim to be as rude and unfair to both the Democrat President and their followers, as the Left was to Trump and his supporters. I am in no way condoning this—I am merely predicting what would take place.  It  tragic that the Left destroyed civil discourse. 

A Democrat win would mean open season to say, print, or publish whatever vile slur comes to mind, because that is the model that has been created by the Democrat Party. A vast segment of the population would remember that Trump was the most unfairly, falsely, and cruelly treated President since Abraham Lincoln.

The backlash for all that the Left has been doing, such as: assaulting people in MAGA hats, spitting on them in restaurants, their elected officials calling for harassment and for chasing down Trump supporters, and for all the violence committed by Antifa, has set the tone for the new President.

In Red States, masses would push their representatives to block everything the new Democrat President tried to do, and would take out their rage on any and every Democrat politician in their home State. Forget about any new appointments to the Supreme Court.

You may ask, “Mario, are you saying I should vote for Trump even though I violently disagree with him?” No, I am not. What I am saying is that you, who are leftists, have done a great evil to America. I am saying that defeating Trump will not bring the elation you fantasize about—it will bring even more misery.  And, why not? It is only fair that you should suffer along with the rest of us.

However, Trump is going to win. And, if you only realized what that means for the future of America, you would be relieved to know that it is true.

DUMB IDEAS

 

Two dumb ideas are being used by celebrity preachers as an excuse to remain silent when they should be mustering the army of God to do her duty.  Because of these dumb ideas, the church in America is losing influence every day. These dumb ideas have produced a confused view of the duty of the body of Christ.

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

Here are the two bone-headed ideas that are being taught in many churches: 

1. All government is from God and we must submit and not mention politics.   

2. A candidate must be sinless or we are choosing the lesser of two evils. 

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

Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.              2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. 3 “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. 4 For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath upon him who practices evil.”

Let’s examine these two ideas:

1. It’s dumb to say, “Stay out of politics and submit to government no matter what.”  No sane Christian believes Hitler was God’s will for Germany.  God raised up the nations of the world to bring divine retribution on Hitler.  God works through people to restrain evil, and that is also the duty of the church.

“The authorities that exist”: This phrase means authority from God, not rogue authority.  Satan is rogue authority.   God has always counter-balanced the threat of tyranny by raising up His chosen authority. That is what is meant by “God’s minister to execute wrath.”

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

German believers abused these same verses to justify their apathy.  Dietrich Bonhoeffer could not open the eyes of the German church to the horrors of Hitler.  His radio addresses warned Germany.  He blamed their inability to discern evil on the then current heresy of ‘cheap grace’ that was accepted by the German church. They blindly submitted to authority. They rejected his warnings and the consequence was the bloodiest World War in history, and 6 million Jews were annihilated.

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

Nations can and do pick evil leaders.  Even Israel picked an evil leader: 1 Samuel 8:6 “But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, “Give us a king to judge us.” So Samuel prayed to the Lord. 7 And the Lord said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.” 

Obama was never God’s choice for America.   We have a mountainous stockpile of wreckage to prove it.  

When evil reigns, God begins a complicated process of re-establishing justice. Human history is messy, but God is at work in that mess.  We want storybook endings, but humanity is complicated. Jehovah works like a surgeon skillfully cutting around vital organs to get at the cancer. Jesus taught a parable about the wheat and the tares, saying that they needed to grow together until the end—otherwise the wheat would be plucked up and lost along with the tares.  We have a Biblical mandate to discern between the wheat and the tares, and to get involved in the work God is doing to save our nation.

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

Instead of looking for a leader who is without sin, we should be asking, “Where is God working?”  

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

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

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

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

The two dumb ideas explained above are not scriptural, and they will play directly into the hands of those who would take away our freedoms and our rights. They will forever change America’s system of government.  It will be impossible to withstand the wave of falsehood and hatred in the next election if we do not follow the truth of the Bible and the leading of the Holy Spirit. We must repudiate these dumb ideas that are crippling us.

But if we see them for what they are, rebuke them, and submit to the Holy Spirit…even a small number of us can bring about a mighty transformation!

Breaking the heaviness

The constant barrage of terrifying headlines and mainstreaming of perversion vexes the child of God.  These verses from Second Peter have never been more relevant than now: “and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)— 9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment…” 2 Peter 2:7-9

Angry debates, rioting, filth paraded in the streets, and constant bad news can drain the sanity from our souls.

Not only this, but we are forced to keep all our enormous frustrations inside of us. While stupidity and wickedness get a megaphone—wisdom and righteousness get duct tape over their mouths.

These are the times that rob inner peace—that bring intense restlessness—that drain all the color and enjoyment from our life.

These are the times Jesus warned us of—and that He gave us direction for.

First He said, “And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But not a hair of your head shall be lost. By your patience possess your souls.” – Luke 21:17-19

Talk about mindless hate! Both the liberals and the feminists have incredible bias for Islam and sheer hatred for Christ and Christianity. It is mind-bending.  It makes zero sense.  Yet that is exactly the kind of irrational hatred our Lord predicted. It is weariness to believers who share their faith openly.

Then Jesus said, “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35 For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth.” (Luke 21:34)

The dumbest thing anyone ever said to me was, “When you come to Jesus, your problems are over.”  I never had problems until I met Jesus!  I kept wondering, “Why am I being attacked?  Why am I being shot at from all directions?  Why do I meet stiff resistance every time I try to do something meaningful for Jesus?”

Does this sound familiar? You walk through life, minding your own business and wham!  A co-worker rages at you for no reason. Money evaporates.  Your health fails.  Loved ones abandon God.  Someone makes an irrational defense for wickedness. A confluence of demonic attacks falls on you.  Life has never felt so cruel and unfair.

At the apex of one of these attacks, something happened to me.  A terrifying thought became a glorious thought, “SOMEBODY IS MAD AT JESUS, AND THEY ARE TAKING IT OUT ON ME!”  Suddenly, I felt qualified to fight back. And I felt profoundly honored.

Think about it!  A soldier does not go to war because he has a personal grudge against the enemy.  He didn’t declare war—his nation did.  He is not responsible for the battle plan—the military is.  He is not paying his own way to the war—his government is.

Let’s take a look at the things that are not the soldier’s responsibility:  The training he needs; the weapons he uses; the food and shelter he requires; the assignments he receives—these, and a host of other things, are not his responsibility.

“What soldier ever serves at his own expense?” (1 Cor. 9:7) “…No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him.” (2 Tim. 2:4)

The soldier does not create the organized army.  He does not carry the weight of how the war will be won. If he sits in the foxhole feeling alone and unfairly attacked, it is because he has forgotten who he is and why he is being attacked.  He has taken the battle into his own hands!

But when he remembers that he was recruited—when he recalls that he is not alone, but part of a victorious army, and all he is called to do is obey orders, it changes everything!

When we take the attack personally, we lose hope.  But, when we say, “The battle is not mine, it’s God’s,” we cannot be defeated.  Let’s stay out of things that do not concern us.  Let’s keep our conflict in the hands of God.  We must discern when we are operating in our own strength and by our own wits.

Remembering your attacks are not personal is plainly seen in these verses where Jesus speaks about conditions in the last days:  Luke 21:12 “But before all this occurs, there will be a time of special persecution, and you will be dragged into synagogues and prisons and before kings and governors for My name’s sake. 13 But as a result, the Messiah will be widely known and honored.  14 Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will answer; 15 for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.

newspaper headlines

When they were arrested, it felt personal. When they were dragged to court, it felt personal.  But when they were asked to speak, it became God’s battle and Christ was glorified!  He gave them the words and the courage to speak.  He even told them not to prepare words beforehand.  That means that we are not to devise ways of fighting back.  It means we will get what we need, when we need it.

Paul experienced the same thing: Philippians 1:12 “But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel…”

Right now we have a presidential election that embodies everything that is wrong with our nation.  It is a hair-pulling, maddening, terrifying, and draining moment for believers. We must put the battle back in God’s hands and let Him replenish our peace and our joy.

Never forget! We have the best message humanity has ever heard, and the best Book ever written.   We have the best Captain in the universe!  We have the all-powerful Holy Spirit, Who has been sent to aid us.   We have access to power, strategy, and wisdom.  All of this, and more, will direct our fighting.

Is someone mad at Jesus, and are they taking it out on you?  What an honor!  What an opportunity!  Whenever Satan comes at you, let Jesus come at him!

The first time an angel stares at you in heaven with wonder and admiration for your service to Christ, you will know why your trials were worth it all.  The first time you hear Jesus say, “Well done, good and faithful servant,” you won’t remember the suffering, the trials, or the battles.

No wonder Paul said, “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”  -Romans 8:18

Hallelujah!  –

But, I am not a prophet

No, I am not a prophet. I am something else. God ordered me to warn the American churches of an impending disaster—to rebuke rampant immorality, the sin of abandoning the Word of God, and political hypocrisy. God ordered me to expose the tyranny of the Left and wake up as many drowsy Christians as possible.

Ironically, few criticized me when I preached against gang violence, poverty, heroin, and crystal meth. But they attack me for exposing the worst gang and the most addictive narcotic: Leftist Socialism.

But I am not a prophet! Amos said, “I am not really one of the prophets. I do not come from a family of prophets. I am just a herdsman and a fruit picker. But the Lord took me from caring for the flocks and told me, “Go and prophesy to my people Israel.”” -Amos 7:14

I was just minding my own business, winning souls. Leading addicts, gang bangers, and students to Jesus is my life. Only my wife and a few very near to me know the price I’ve paid. I have lost friends. I have been banned from some churches. And no wonder!

This blog put a spotlight on a hideous, hidden condition. Churches were tacitly approving abortion, same sex marriage, and many other leftist Democrat views in order to hold on to their members.

When you consider the content of the blog, it is a miracle that it has spread to six million readers. It preaches a message that few ever get in church anymore. It breaks every axiom of social media. Instead of using video—a far more effective means of attracting an audience—I was limited to the written word. There is no natural way to explain its expanding influence, except God. However, it is here to warn!

If I am not a prophet, then what is my office and my gift? I am an Evangelist! That is all I want to do−to see mass revival, with signs and wonders. I have never stopped winning souls! I will never stop winning souls!

Someone else was supposed to take this mantle that weighs so heavily on me. They were supposed to prophesy against the evil threatening our nation. The Lord revealed to me that He had called another minister to do this job, but that individual was unwilling to lose their reputation and to stand in the gap for America. I was not God’s first choice for this!

Now I must issue a fresh warning.

Because of the wide-spread sickness in the American church, that was demonstrated in the mid-term elections, pastors who were nothing more that hired guns (bought and paid for by the likes of George Soros) are bringing down the judgment of God. Because millions of so-called Christians voted for the Democrat Party, because they sat in churches, hearing murky messages urging them to vote for leftists, we almost saw Hillary Clinton come to power. These pastors are the proverbial wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Those false ministers who form covenants with darkness are muzzled by the fear of not being ‘politically correct.’ They can’t condemn abortion or the destruction of marriage. They are silent concerning the threat posed by radical Islam and the anti-God violence in America. As a consequence they are facing an even more grave danger—they have grieved the Holy Spirit.

The ideas and values that created America are almost gone. That makes the carnal church special villains in the eyes of God. Ananias and Sapphira were not struck dead simply because of their crime—it was also because of when they committed it. They did it in a strategic time when many miracles were taking place and the church needed to be reminded that they served a holy God.

Amos was not a prophet, per se, but he was recruited by the Lord to expose the rogue altars that corrupt priests had built to replace the altar God had told Moses to erect. They introduced superstitions that were outside the word of God.  Amos told them “tear them down, or God will!”

Amos 3:13 says, “Hear and testify against the house of Jacob,” says the Lord God, the God of hosts, 14 “that in the day I punish Israel for their transgressions, I will also visit destruction on the altars of Bethel; and the horns of the altar shall be cut off and fall to the ground. 15 I will destroy the winter house along with the summer house; the houses of ivory shall perish, and the great houses shall have an end, says the Lord.”

Can this mean that lavish centers of worship can suddenly disappear?  Can we afford to assume they cannot? Two years after Amos prophesied concerning the sin of Israel, an earthquake destroyed everything the prophecy of Amos had targeted.

But Isaiah said, “Tell the righteous it shall be well with them.”  This is the hour for the remnant who love God, and who seek His face, to feel comforted.  You will be spared.

In fact, at this moment, heaven is releasing power for miracles, words of prophetic might, and great resources to do the work of God.  Those who have kept their integrity and who have perhaps labored in obscurity, not seeing any results, will receive great power and see great numbers of converts.

For the rest, there remains an ominous warning: In your carnality, you are one of the greatest threats to freedom.  You are aiding and abetting the destruction of a great miracle—the miracle of liberty that came from our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution.

Someday soon, all I say will be confirmed. I will then be released from this prophetic mandate, because I am not a prophet. I am an Evangelist.

But know this, that if the church will not rise up and speak, God will bring natural disasters against us in judgment. Disasters such as we are seeing, even now: flood, fire, plague, earthquakes, famine, and rampant crime, in order to wake us up and turn us back to Him. It is His gracious mercy. God wants to spare America from self-destruction.

Matthew Henry said something chilling in his commentary on Amos: “If men will not destroy idolatrous altars, God will, and those with them that had them in veneration.”

NOT FOR WIMPS

We, the Christians who are prepared to do what it takes to see Trump reelected, have a loving and respectful message for our brothers and sisters in Christ.
To those who are squeamish and have sided with the agenda of immorality and socialism, we say—in the most loving way possible—God bless you, but please stay out of our way as we pursue God’s miracle in 2020.  The Trump miracle is not for wimps.
Now, let me also speak respectfully to those who are honestly undecided.
Satan has stoked the fires in an attempt to get the church to abandon Trump. The devil has intimidated believers to couch their fear in terms of false spirituality. These believers use high-sounding jargon to justify siding against their brothers and sisters in Christ.
But, in doing that, they also abandon their miracle.  Trump is only the start of a miracle. Trump is a foot in the door—a stay of execution.  He is an act of God to buy the church time to repent and return to her rightful role in American life.
Trump is not a pastor or a moral reformer. His role is specialized and only for a season. If we don’t seize the time and the door God has opened, I promise you, disaster will strike.

Consider how Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have handled the last two years: Endless investigations—ignoring the economy, what is best for American families, and indifferent to the invasion of our country. They have been in a frenzy to normalize immorality, and giving billions of dollars to people who are not Americans.
Trump annoys you? You want a saint in the Oval Office? His idiosyncrasies are nothing in comparison to the overt godlessness spewing from leftist candidates. Before you abandon Trump, take another look at the alternative.
We do not worship Trump. He is not supposed to usher in revival. We are. He is not the one who is supposed to pray without ceasing. We are.  He is not the moral leader of America…that is the responsibility of the church!
Now let me address those of you who believe Trump is a miracle, but are not willing to work for his reelection because you think this miracle doesn’t need your help.
You who claim Trump is a miracle, like King Cyrus, need to take another look at King Cyrus. Cyrus only helped Israel in a limited capacity, and for a short time. It was up to the people of God to seize the miracle. In fact it was the Jews who wanted to remain in Babylon that nearly destroyed the miracle.

If not for the astonishing endurance of a handful of priests, prophets, and one notable cup bearer, Israel would have remained in ruins.  (Read Ezra, Nehemiah and Haggai). They led the people who were willing to work to rebuild their nation.
It took nearly 80 years after the king’s decree before the Temple and the wall were finished. I will let you in on a secret: we don’t have 80 years.  If we do not learn from history, then America will never be restored.  If we blow this, disaster is inevitable.
It is silly to worry about what people will think if we stand with Trump. The Left is going hate you anyway—with or without Trump. At least, with Trump we have a chance. We have a temporary firewall that will allow us to preach the Gospel and hold on for another miracle.
We can’t be passive! We can’t fear supporting the President because things have gotten so heated.  Don’t waste the miracle we have received.
Saying that we should not get involved in politics, because politics has become so dirty, is like saying we should not try to save the lost because they are so sinful.
The American church must build on the opportunity. We must wake up to our task!  We must shake off the disastrous apathy and the sin of complacency.
2020 will be a year when the nation will be totally divided. It will be the year that will see the election of your lifetime.
I don’t believe you are reading this by accident. Listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit. His voice will give you confirmation that what I am saying is true.
Find your place in this struggle for freedom. Don’t worry about others−just do what you know is right. God will take care of the rest.
If God be for us, who can be against us? 

 

Join believers from across our nation. Come be a part of a new American miracle. God is seeking people in this dark hour—to arm them with extraordinary power to work miracles and destroy strongholds of evil.

CHRISTIANS WHO HATE TRUMP

By Mario Murillo

There are Christians who hate Trump.  Let’s call it for what it is: hate.  It is their hate—which is very strange for those who name the name of Jesus—that dulls their ability to see the inaccuracy of their comments and their myopic views.

One sanctimonious ranting Christian said, “There’s nothing Biblical about Trump.”  Actually, there’s nothing Biblical about that statement.  The prophet Daniel served Nebuchadnezzar.  Daniel recognized the role that this pagan king played in God’s unfolding drama.  The church’s ability to work with Trump is totally Biblical.

Now, I must clarify something, lest I incur the wrath of Trump supporters.  I am not calling Trump a pagan king—I’m sure he is much more moral than his enemies realize—I am saying that if Daniel could work with ‘Nebbie,’ how much more can we work with the Donald.

I have tried very hard to figure out what causes believers to hate Trump.  Our side won a long overdue and miraculous victory at the polls, and yet these believers choose to aid and abet the other side.  Is it because their favorite “Christian” didn’t win? Is it a case of sour grapes?They didn’t require any President to be a squeaky clean pastor, until Trump.

Yes, his tweets can be a bit much.  And okay, President Trump is not as smooth as Reagan…but, maybe we don’t need smooth right now.

Here is something else that is really strange, (hypocritical is more like it): why didn’t these guardians of morality speak out against Obama?  T.D. Jakes even attacked Franklin Graham for questioning Obama’s Christian Faith.  Jakes told him not to judge a brother.  Hold that thought as we explore another question…

How could you not question Obama’s Christianity?  Obama begged the question by dropping the Christian-card whenever it suited him (something Trump never does).   Meanwhile, Barack fought for same sex marriage, late term abortion, gave billions to Iran, and was the most Biblically hostile President in our history.

Back to Jakes.  So why do so many Christian leaders—who said it was wrong to judge Obama—judge Trump?

Trump is not a pastor.  He is a businessman who loves America.  As far as his faith?  I am not qualified to determine his spiritual depth, since I’ve never had the chance to meet the man. But there are many photos of Christian leaders laying hands on the President, praying for him, and he is cooperating.

“He is like Hitler and the church is being fooled,” said another comment.  At this time, those of you who are wearing tinfoil hats, please remove them, and listen.  Hitler never had 98% of the media against him.  Trump has never called for a new constitution.  Hitler never tried to protect Israel.  I could go on and on.

Maybe if Trump had been the first President to address the March for Life.  Maybe if he had chosen an on fire born-again Vice President.  Maybe if he had rescinded executive orders that banned federal funds from Christian organizations.  Maybe if he overruled the Johnson Amendment that banned the free speech of pastors.  Maybe if he had moved the American Embassy to Jerusalem, and shown himself to be a true supporter of Israel.  Maybe if he had put someone on the Supreme Court who helped Christian bakers to exercise their right to freedom of religion.  Maybe then you would support him.  Oh wait…he did all those things…

God has done a miracle and the enemy wants to make short work of the amazing breakthroughs we are witnessing by dividing the church.  Instead of being a religious outlier you should be thanking God, praying for and supporting the President. And voting for righteousness, and against the enemies of freedom.

1 I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in high office, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all devotion and dedication (to God). 3 This (is) good and acceptable before God our Savior, 4 Who wishes all men to be saved and to come to a full knowledge of (the) Truth. – 1 Timothy 2:1-4

WHY THE LEFT…

The Left accepts men as women, but not terrorists as Muslims.  “No. Not a single terrorist has ever been Muslim,” they assure us of this−despite the fact that the majority of terrorism in the world is done in the name of Allah.   To put it another way, all other religions in the world combined do not account for a minuscule fraction of the terror done in the name of Islam.

Why have I waded into this explosive topic? Actually, this is the beginning of a series of blogs that draw attention to clear threats to innocent believers. This issue is at the heart of church life now and will become even more so in the immediate future.

I will never regret this blog. In fact, I know that in future days I will deem this one to be among the most important things I have written.  I will always remember that while I was able to say something—I did say something.

How many innocent people have died because we refuse to face radical Islam?  Atrocities—unheard of before in history—are being committed against women and children.   But, according to the Left, not one of them is a Muslim—not even one!

It even gets silly. Politifact said that the photos of two Muslims who were laughing as Notre Dame was burning was a Photoshop fake. Forensics proved it to be genuine. Somali teens went on a rampage with hammers on a bus in Minnesota and the media totally ignored the entire incident!

Hillary Clinton actually said: “Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.”  NOTHING? Take a deep breath—and read that again—then answer this question: In what universe is that possibly true?

“Liberals Accept Men as Women, But Not Terrorists as Muslims. Liberals are perfectly happy to accept a man who “presents” as female, as a woman, and vice versa, but they won’t admit a terrorist who “presents” as Muslim is indeed a Muslim,” says talk radio host Rush Limbaugh.

Anything but Islam: Limbaugh cites the fact that liberals in government and media blamed the attack on the PULSE nightclub and gaybar in Orlando on Republican opposition to same-sex marriage and other issues, rather than the truth, that the attack was inspired by radical Islamists. Those on the Left completely ignored the fact that Omar Mateen, whose massacre left 49 dead and 53 injured, was heard to pledge allegiance to ISIS during the shooting.

Obama fixated on gun control laws in light of the Orlando shooting but didn’t want to get to the root of Islamic influence (of course not).   Focusing on the inanimate object used by a madman only prevents innocent people from being able to defend themselves and tips more situations in favor of terrorists.

Limbaugh said, “Men and women who want to “present” as the opposite sex can tell Democrats that that’s who they are, and there’s no doubt whatsoever,” Limbaugh said. “Somebody comes along and says, “I’m a Muslim! I don’t like you! I don’t like the fact you’re an infidel. I’m gonna blow up every institution of yours I can.” Then the Democrats say, “I’m not sure that we’re dealing with Muslims.” Limbaugh adds, “Isn’t it amazing?”

On the other hand—Limbaugh observed—when religion is blamed, it is Christians who come under fire. In fact, when a religion must be blamed it can always be Christianity, but never Islam.

“Yes, Christians, whether they know it or not, threaten homosexuals,” Limbaugh said. “Threaten! Heck, Christians threaten everybody, and that’s why people are not ‘themselves.’  Christians are to blame for every aberration taking place in this country.”

Are you looking for an explanation for this insanity?  Do you want to understand why Obama, while President, imported one million Muslims into America? Are you ready to grasp the reason why we can’t take steps to uncover the growing network of terrorists in our nation?

Need I explain why Biden would do for America what Obama did for our embassy in Benghazi?  He would ignore cries for help.  He would deny a security problem exists.  He would blame a video, or Christians−anything other than Islam.

So why do Democrats protect Islam at all cost, and accuse Christianity at every turn?

Why, you ask?  Because 85% of Muslims vote Democrat…

WITH ALL DUE RESPECT

I am writing this to you pastors, because you have the power to unify and bring our nation back to righteousness, but you are not doing it. I am writing to you famous pastors. You have a chance to help our friend, in the White House, Donald Trump, but you are not. Here is my open letter to famous American Pastors who were silent at the time about Obama, but who now openly oppose Trump.

With all due respect, I believe you need to answer two big questions.

 The first question is why you were silent when Obama was doing evil to America?

-Obama loaded our children with unpayable debt. You said nothing.

-Obama was the most hostile President toward the Bible in history. You said nothing.

-Obama not only fought to defend late term abortion, he championed the right to kill babies that survive an abortion. You said nothing.

-Obama opened the Pandora’s Box of political correctness that has those who are the real racists calling everyone else racist, and the true fascists calling everyone else fascists. You said nothing.

-Obama made our universities a sick joke of intellectual dishonesty, and centers of censorship. You said nothing.

-Obama is the one who changed and perverted the definition of marriage in America. You said nothing.

-Obama labored to endanger Israel, strengthen terrorists, and gave billions of dollars to Iran. You said nothing.

-Obama tried to drive the church underground. You still said nothing.

You never opposed Obama and you never said anything against him. Why?

 Now for the second question. You never spoke out against Obama, but you are now outspoken against Trump? How does that work?

Ironically, President Trump is the one who stopped a stupid law that censored your free speech in the pulpit, and you are using the very free speech that he won for you to bash him.

Trump is working to stop abortion. You are not helping him−or even voicing your support.

In fact, some of you told your people from the pulpit not to vote for Trump.  Had you been successful—Hillary Clinton would be President today.

Trump rebuilt our economy. He strengthened Israel. He is trying to secure our borders to keep our nation safe.  Oh yeah!  That’s a good reason to speak against him…

You don’t want a wall; you believe Jesus taught open borders.  That means you have swallowed the Kool-Aid of the Left.

You are siding with sanctuary cities.  You are allowing a system that protects killers to continue.  This one especially hits home to me, because just recently in Reno, Nevada, where I live, a 19 year old who is here illegally from San Salvador, named Wilber Ernesto Martinez-Guzman, murdered four people.

 

You are siding against your own congregation.  You are condoning a policy that floods the labor market with unskilled labor, even as robots are replacing workers. This impacts the life of the people you are supposed to protect.  You are blatantly contradicting yourselves by claiming to be their pastor, even as you help make their lives harder and more dangerous.

I love you as my brothers, sisters, and coworkers in Christ, but on these questions you need to be publicly challenged. There is too much at stake. You represent millions of Christians who are looking for righteous leadership. Unless we stand together now, our nation is doomed.

Our immigration policies are in chaos because the Leftists oppose building a wall to keep out a flood of hundreds of thousands of cartel criminals, MS-13 gang members, and drug dealers from inundating our nation. If you are hinging it all on these failed immigration policies, then examine your stance, and see if it is Christian.

Illegals are committing atrocities, rapes, and murders every day, and they will continue to rape and kill.  Democrats who do not care about America, are desperate to regain control of the government, and they know that 70 percent of these illegals will vote them back into power. Ask God if you are not pawns in their game.

 

Lastly: is a wall and a secure border ‘unchristian’?  Let’s ask Jesus.  “But know this, that if the master of the house had known at what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.” –Matthew 24:43

Rise up against what is happening to our nation. It is literally now, or never.
