THIS NOVEMBER

In November, you will begin to see the judgment of God fall on America. Strangely, it will be a surgical strike that will devastate some, but will pass over others. There are many voices making similar predictions, but my message to you is about what you should do to prepare for the convulsive events that are nearly upon us. My message to you contains both sobering truth and rock-solid encouragement.

Let’s begin with the most important thing to understand about the impending judgment coming in November: It is because of God’s fierce and firm decision to spare America, and because He has decided to save our nation.

It is a fearful truth, however. Shock waves are required to correct our course. Violent upheavals are a part of His rescue mission.

Who are the targets of God’s judgment? False pastors, politicians, celebrities, and cultural influencers. Why are they to be targeted? Because they are the ones responsible for calling down the destruction of our nation. They have shaken their fists at God and boasted that they are going to build an America that hates our Judeo-Christian roots.

Jehovah who has, in the past, winked at their debauchery, has now fixed a deadline for the end of their activities.

A forerunner to this judgment is Donald Trump. While he has been a blessing to the righteous, he has been a scourge to the God-haters. They cannot explain his effectiveness. They cannot understand why they cannot stop him. They are baffled that every attempt to destroy him has backfired.

The architects of a godless America will now see the same force that has kept President Trump from being destroyed, descending in judgment on their empires. Dismiss me if you will, but consider this: What if you see false preachers taken, even while they are speaking their pernicious doctrines? What if billionaires who are seemingly impervious to bankruptcy, are suddenly wiped out? What if nations that are the avowed enemy of America and Israel, suddenly implode economically or by convulsions in nature?

The pandemic and the mass rioting are but the initial birth pangs of this occasion.

Convulsions are indeed coming, but God wants you, the righteous core who are His beloved, to not only endure, but to thrive as a result of this event.

What should you do to be ready for November?

1. Don’t be deceived. As Jesus watched the Twelve admiring the buildings in Jerusalem, He told them that they would all be destroyed, until not one brick would be left on top of another.

So, they asked when this would happen. Matthew 24:3, “Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be?”” They wanted Jesus to give them a date, so they could be prepared. They were only thinking in the natural, and that is the wrong way to prepare.

The question they should have asked is, “How should I prepare?” Jesus’ answer is very telling. He said, “Take heed that no one deceives you” (Mt. 24:4).

The most important gift in this hour is discernment. Satan is bombarding the church with conflicting opinions that range from apathy to outright terror. Neither extreme is the truth! This downpour of opinions is designed by hell to destroy God’s people. 

 

The overuse of hyper-grace and prophetic “words” is by design. The omitting of the Bible and sound teaching is by design. They have come to deceive and render the people of God powerless, prior to the coming storm. Therefore, we must love truth—not foolishness!

 

2. Prepare, but do not panic. God knew this was coming. He is not surprised and He is never fooled. The child of God must remember that their greatest safety is in being right with God. Those who would make you panic, have not been sent from the Lord.

It is important to understand that if you have been seeking God all along, that is, if you are pressing in to know Him and please Him, you have been preparing, even without realizing it. Your safety is already in place.  Matthew 24:6, “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”

3. The righteous will be spared this November by a special intimacy with the Lord, a special clarity of His voice that will lead to special instructions and a special refuge from the coming judgment.

Isaiah 26:20-21, “Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, until the indignation is past. For behold, the Lord comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; the earth will also disclose her blood, and will no more cover her slain.”

 

This verse is so rich, that I will end this message by unpacking some of its treasure.

-Entering into your chambers is not just a room, a bomb shelter or the cabin in the mountains. It is a place in God—a place that makes you disaster-proof, as David wrote in Psalm 41:1, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

-Closing the door behind you means you shut out all of the toxins of this age. It means you slam the door on fear and confusion and every person or vile thing that tries to undermine your relationship with Jesus. When you hear that door slam, a genuine peace and power will clothe you.

-“Hide yourself” is both literal and figurative. God will instruct you on what to buy to be ready and what not to waste your money on. You will hide wisely. Proverbs 22:3, “A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.”

Indeed, God is coming out of His place to punish, but from the spiritual and physical fortress God will make with you, you will hear and maybe even see it, but judgment will pass over you. Just as in the judgment on Egypt, there was darkness where the Egyptians were, but it was light in Goshen where the people of God were living (see Exodus 10:22-23).

Always rest in this promise, “A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you behold, and see the reward of the wicked” (Psalm 91:7-8).

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TRUMP MUST DO AT THIS MOMENT

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

Hijacking Christianity

I remember that time when a newscaster asked me a ‘gotcha’ question: “What is your opinion on homosexuality?” My answer was simple, “My opinion does not matter, but I will tell you what the Word of God says about it.”

That ended that. She quickly changed the subject. She had hoped I would offer my own viewpoint so she could attack me as a homophobe. She, like so many on the Left, don’t want you to know they are anti-Bible.  Leftists know that millions of Americans believe the Bible is the Word of God.

When Jesus was in the wilderness being tempted by Satan, every time the devil asked a question, Jesus answered him with scripture. See how that works?

Pete Buttigieg is ‘married’ to a man, something the Bible condemns. However, that doesn’t stop him from quoting the safer parts of the Bible, so as to appear Christian. Like many hypocritical politicians, he knows being tagged as a Christian can get him votes. Obama did the same thing.

Pete believes there are mistakes in the Bible. He feels qualified to differentiate which verses we should believe in. That is a rare kind of arrogance, because he is not only placing himself above Bible scholars, he is exalting himself above God.

His brand of Christianity seeks to meld two utterly incompatible views, and he gets away with it because the media never questions anything those on the Left say. And, our culture is subjective, emotional, and rarely follows things out to their logical conclusion.

Now, take the religious tone out of this, and imagine a physicist who believes in gravity, but does not believe in Isaac Newton. He would be laughed out of the scientific community—just as Buttigieg should be laughed out of the presidential race for appropriating only the parts of the Bible he likes.  He is, in essence, hijacking Christianity.

This hijacking happened before. Obama believes babies can be killed at any point during pregnancy, and even if they should survive abortion. That disregard for human life is blasphemy in the Bible. Yet, he claimed he was a Christian. He hijacked Christianity to get votes.

He claimed ‘Gay love’ is a love from God. But the Bible clearly forbids such perversion, and lists it along with several other sins that are anathema to the Lord.

Time to let the Bible speak for itself. Take a look at this one verse from the Greek Interlinear New Testament:

9 οὐκ οἴδατε ὅτι ἄδικοι θεο βασιλείαν ο κληρονομήσουσιν; μ πλανᾶσθε: οὔτε πὀρνοι οὔτε εἰδωλολάτραι οὔτε μοιχο οὔτε μαλακο οὔτε ἀρσενοκοῖται

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor a catamite (a man who is used sexually as a woman), nor a sodomite (a man who uses men sexually as a woman),

10οὔτε κλέπται οὔτε πλεονέκται, ο μέθυσοι, ο λοίδοροι, οὐχ ἅρπαγες βασιλείαν θεο κληρονομήσουσιν.

neither thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor thieves will inherit the kingdom of God.  (1 Cor. 6:9-10)

Obama said if the winds of change turned against Islam, he would stand with Islam. How can anyone who calls Jesus Lord—as the Bible teaches—say that? For all this, Obama never hesitated to call himself a Christian. Sadly, even Christianity Today once carried an article defending Obama’s “conversion.”

The trend to uncouple Christ and the Bible is by no means limited to politicians. Even Spirit-filled believers are trying to do it. Most of us have heard preachers talk about their personal experiences that ‘transcend the Bible.’ One preacher went on my Facebook page and called the Bible milk that he had outgrown!

They will tell you they are trusting in the Holy Spirit more than ‘a book.’ But what they are really saying is that they trust in themselves more than the Bible.  The Holy Spirit would never condone abandoning the Bible.

By making same-sex marriage and Christianity compatible, Buttigieg has proven that he, too, is dangerous. By modeling a non-Biblical Christianity, he has shown us he is lethal.

I could respect an honest leftist who would admit they reject the Bible. I can abide them saying they believe the Bible is full of hate—because I can easily prove it is not.

A con artist like Buttigieg needs to be rejected for his massive dishonesty. To use Jesus to get votes, while you are living in open rebellion to the Bible, is to embrace pure evil.

CNN said, “Pete Buttigieg’s rise opens doors to donors that fueled Obama.” The best argument for rejecting Buttigieg is that he is following in Obama’s footsteps. We cannot let him hijack Christianity like Obama did.

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…

HOW THEY GOT IT SO WRONG

Christianity Today was founded by Billy Graham who, to the best of my knowledge, never supported same sex marriage, abortion, or Barack Obama for President.  More on this in a moment.

First the big news:

There’s a big noise because the editor of Christianity Today, a prominent evangelical magazine founded by Billy Graham, called for President Donald Trump to be removed from office in an editorial published Thursday.

Mark Galli, the magazine’s editor in chief, wrote that “the facts in this instance are unambiguous.” His editorial was entitled, “Trump Should Be Removed from Office.”

He continued, “The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents. That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral.”

Before you panic and think something devastating has happened, let’s review the history of Christianity Today and take a look at some of the other things they wrote and see how consistent they are about immorality.

In a piece they published in 2012, they chastised the church for doubting Barak Obama’s Christianity. They even called the article “Our Evangelical in Chief.”

Stating, “That the true religious identity of the world’s most famous, most powerful man could remain a mystery to so many is itself a mystery. Before and especially during his presidency, Obama has been extraordinarily open on matters of faith, providing ample evidence for his repeated claim to be a devout Christian. The evidence may even suggest Obama is our evangelical-in-chief.”1

The article even questioned why we would prefer the Republican candidate over Obama, since Obama’s beliefs were closer to ours than Romney’s.

“While there are plenty of legitimate policy reasons that evangelicals might support Governor Romney, their willingness to overlook their desire for a coreligionist candidate may also have at least something to do with the fact that 24% of them—higher than any other religious group—believe Obama is a Muslim, and even more are unaware (or unconvinced?) he’s a Protestant. What if more evangelicals knew Obama largely shares their religious beliefs?”1

Then there was the article by Ed Stetzer making the case for voting for Hillary Clinton. First they promote Obama and then Hillary. The following includes the most disturbing justification for being Christian and being okay with abortion from Deborah Fikes then leader of the The World Evangelical Alliance, presented in Christianity Today.

Stetzer wrote, “Two weeks ago, Deborah Fikes offered her endorsement of Hillary Clinton as part of a series of endorsements of major and minor party candidates. I also asked the major party endorsers to come back and answer questions and respond to objections often surfaced by Evangelicals.”2

Here is an excerpt of Ms. Fikes’s original endorsement:

“My recent resignations from evangelical leadership positions to endorse Hillary Clinton speaks volumes of how important I believe it is that she is elected in November. The toxic tone and atmosphere that surrounds Mr. Trump and is fueled among his supporters has done irreparable damage to not only our country and the future of the GOP but also to the public witness of evangelicals in America who are seen as some of his biggest supporters.”

On abortion: “As a mother, it is difficult for me to think about this from the unborn baby’s perspective but I have even more compassion when I think about the women who have abortions. Maybe this is because I envision the unborn babies being welcomed into the arms of Jesus but when I think about the mother, I think of the burden she may carry for the rest of her life.”2

Ms Fikes salves her conscience imagining that the baby—who can feel pain as they are dismembered—is okay because they end up in the arms of Jesus.  Furthermore, that is preferred to…and this is her definition of a child which is: “the burden she may carry for the rest of her life.” Why would a Christian publication try to find a rosy side to abortion? And why say it in such an inelegant way?

The most maddening part is that this magazine still claims a connection to Billy Graham, who preached against everything they are condoning. Small wonder that Franklin Graham repudiated this article in Christianity Today.

Please don’t waste one minute worrying that this attempted broadside against an innocent man will damage our righteous cause. Instead, stick your finger in a glass of water. Then pull your finger out and see how long the hole lasts. That’s how long the suggestion put forth by this post-Christian magazine, calling for the impeachment of President Trump, will last…

Still thinks its a game

The Democrats have made it plain: free healthcare for illegals paid for by you. They are not hiding anything. They want the right to kill newborns. They will force the church to stop teaching God’s word on sexual immorality. They will remake America. We see their true colors. They couldn’t be any clearer.

What I don’t get, is how the American church can still think this is all a game.

Because of man, and nature—planet Earth is ready to explode—not from global warming but from moral cooling.  Matthew 24:12 “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.”

Meanwhile, the church—like passengers partying on the deck of the Titanic—pats herself on the back for what she considers her ‘big events.’

Nothing has stopped America’s headlong depravity. Nothing has even slowed it down. We have spent more money, more time, and more talent than ever—yet the church never asks, “Why do we keep doing things that don’t work?” Why can’t we impact culture?”

When the church:           

-Feeds a powerless Gospel to a sick nation, a Gospel that does not deliver us from evil, but even worse, makes those who have already been converted still weaker, the church must think it is a game.

-When the church no longer views the works of Satan as the enemy, but believes the worst thing that can happen is to have an unsuccessful life—the church is just playing a game.  The only solution is a return to the Bible.  The Bible needs to set fire to our sermons.

Sadly, even many of my Spirit-filled acquaintances are also playing games.  Facebook is like a Petri dish for Pentecostals.  In one compressed medium you witness the banal bacteria that excite Charismatics today.

Witness the games:

-Titles like Prophet, Bishop, and Apostle are flung around indiscriminately.  Every garish emotional experience is hawked as being from God.  One “prophet” says he went back in time and visited Moses.  Who of us has not scratched our heads at preachers in ill-fitting jeans, live-streaming from a near-empty church, telling us that they are the ‘vessel of the hour’?

– Conferences promise that you will get “a word from God” if you pay a fee…as if the Holy Spirit was some kind of On Demand Movie Channel.  Or they offer formulas to “activate” blessings.  This is New Age philosophy.  God is not a force to be manipulated—He is an awesome person to be adored and obeyed.  God is not your shield and butler! Gifts arrive, as the Spirit wills, to those whose hearts are broken and those who are emptied of self. His gifts are for the lost, the poor, and the forsaken.

-Everything seems based on angelic visitations, dreams, visions, and trips to heaven.  Most of our time is spent on these ‘experiences’ rather than on rock-solid instruction from the Word of God.

I believe in dreams, prophecy, healing, angels, and visions—but if they are from God, they will drive us to the front line of the culture war, and not into emotionally comfortable safe-zones.

“The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty to the tearing down of strongholds.” (2 Corinthians 10:4)

We are nowhere near tearing down any kind of strongholds—because we think it’s a game. We insulate the supernatural from the ones who need it most. We are role playing. We are doing our own version of dungeons and dragons. 

Beloved, this is not a game.  When Christians toy with materialism, celebrity, alcohol, compromise, and carnalityit spells doom for America.   Right now, giant media sources such as Google, Facebook, Apple, YouTube, and the rest of Silicon Valley, are threatening to pull the plug on Christians, Christian Schools, and churches.  Pinterest has already been caught deleting posts containing scripture. Every day they inch closer to full censorship.  Will your zany videos matter, when they are immediately taken down and no one can see them?

Our preaching ricochets off a culture careening into indescribable debauchery.  Soon it will be illegal to preach the doctrines you are now ignoring.  What a horror!  Pastor, you will wake up one day feeling remorse over the truths you ignored, because now it’s too late—they have been banned.

I am often asked, “Mario is there any hope?”

The answer is, “Yes! Because my hope is founded on God’s fierce love for America!  He will not let this nation go, without a fierce fight.  My hope is also in some of the last people you would expect.

My hope is in the discouraged preacher.  They are the honest-to-God preachers, who feel like fools when they see the runaway success of those who have compromised their ministries.

Psalm 73:12 “Behold, these are the ungodly who are always at ease; they increase in riches. 13 Surely, I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocence. 14 For all day long I have been plagued, and chastened every morning.”

My hope is in those who chose to fail honestly, rather than succeed artificially.

Are you struggling with decreasing numbers and falling finances, even as you present Christ-centered, Bible-based-truth from your pulpit?   God sees you! Hold on just a little longer.  Fire is coming that will cause such a stampede that you won’t know where to put the crowds.

My hope is in the Christian nobodies.  Have you failed?  Did man take away your pulpit?  Get ready…your brokenness is a key to the fire of God in this hour.  A nationwide hunger for reality is about to make shallowness obsolete.

Are you a teacher, business person, police officer, or stay at home mom?  Do you burn with a passion for your community?

Get ready for vision and anointing! They are about to break out, right where you live!

The hour is so dangerous that God must bring down religious empires, while promoting others to great power and influence.  Satan is also playing games.

I believe that God is not playing games. Using the last people we would expect, He is about to teach Satan what war really looks like!

 

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.

 

 

IF YOU ARE FINALLY READY

Satan is flooding the world with evil while Christians have grown passive.  Believers are ignorant of what God expects them to do to stand against the torrent of wickedness. But there are those who are sick of waiting and sick of the evil. They know there is something bigger and wider than they have ever known. They also know something else…

They know that:

-Shallow, flattering teaching is the perfect greenhouse gas.  It’s fumes dull reality. It kills natural urgency.  Taking a stand becomes a distant fantasy.

-Satan has sold the church fool’s gold.  Instead of taking up weapons mighty to the tearing down of strongholds, we pursue money, cheap grace, and celebrity.

-Faith has grown flabby. Too many don’t know our weapons.  They don’t know our authority.  They don’t know our marching orders.  They don’t know what to say to this generation.  Most of all, they know must believers are ignorant about what is right around the corner, if we don’t see revival.

Peter recognized when government crossed the line.  Acts 4: 19 But Peter and John replied, “Which is right in God’s eyes: to listen to you, or to him? You be the judges! 20 As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”

He also understood what to do when government tries to ban the Gospel: “Acts 5: 28 saying, “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name? And look, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man’s blood on us!”

29 But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.”

They are coming after your freedom.  They will force feed your children the Antichrist agenda. That is…unless we wake up to our purpose and destiny.   I am calling you out for special power in this hour.

If you are finally ready, then do these things:

1. You must be filled or refilled with the Holy Spirit.  You must have fire, or you must have fresh fire.   The courage to face the onslaught of hatred that will be thrown at you can never be met by human power.  To say what you need to say, to obey when you need to obey can’t come from human motivation.  You must have the same Spirit that fueled world-changing saints in all times. God never meant for anyone to preach or lead without a clear baptism of the Holy Spirit.

2. You must flow in signs and wonders.  Our culture is beyond words.  They must see proof of the power of God.  God means for you to provide that proof.  The authority you need won’t come cheaply or instantly.  (Read my blog on the price of God’s miracle working power https://wp.me/p1vrzp-53e

3. Get ready to do something for God that will boggle your mind.  God is selecting people and working in them for unmatched power to attack evil.  Habakkuk 1: 5 “Look among the nations and watch—Be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days Which you would not believe, though it were told you.”

He is creating people who can turn the tide of wickedness.  He doesn’t care about your age or your education.  He searches for someone who is travailing over the evil and will die without power and purpose.  They want to be in the fight—they want to be in the thick of it.  Isaiah 6: 8 says, “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

4. Prepare to pray in a way you never imagined.  God is pulling you out of the damaged religious crowd into special intimacy with him.  You are not going to pray like before.  E.M Bounds said, “To say prayers in a decent, delicate way is not heavy work. But to pray really, to pray till hell feels the ponderous stroke, to pray till the iron gates of difficulty are opened, till the mountains of obstacles are removed, till the mists are exhaled and the clouds are lifted, and the sunshine of a cloudless day brightens-this is hard work, but it is God’s work, and man’s best labor.”

What do all of these things I am asking you to do have in common?  Every one of them involves a leap out of dead church life.  They are a courageous declaration of war on the godless ideologies that are destroying our nation.  They are an irrevocable decision to be in the middle of God’s greatest acts in history.

TRUMP GOES THROUGH HELL FOR THE CHURCH

No matter how much I am attacked,  I will not turn my back on Trump.  Because of his policies I have been able to win more souls, and preach with greater freedom.   He is standing up for our ministry and he is standing up for you too.

You lefties need to save your strength.  Nothing you say is going to change my mind.

Now I have a burning question for the church…Have you seen the chilling video of Lance Wallnau relating the prophetic warning Trump gave to Evangelical leaders?   Our president found out what the Democrats plan to do to Christians if they retake the House and Senate.  He took the time to gather church leaders and warn them.

The Left will go after the church with vengeance because they think the church helped Trump.   Embarrassingly, that is a false accusation since the church at large really hasn’t helped him.   Nothing like they could have.   Now because of apathy, Trump’s hard won protections are being frittered away.  The President’s description of the left’s hatred for the church, and their plans for us should they win next Tuesday is chilling.

Think of it!  Everything Trump has done for the rights of Christians—the rights Obama removed—are threatened again.  On top of that, the most oppressive and tedious investigations ever with halt the engines of our economy.   Mueller’s investigation would look like a picnic compared to the tidal wave of investigations Democrats will start.

Informed sources say, radicals will be bolder to assault conservatives and Christians.  Social media would tear off its mask and openly persecute the church.  Yeah I’m mad.

It is maddening!  The excruciating suffering Trump and his family faced so we could do something so simple and easy: to vote and challenge other Christians to vote from our pulpits… AND WE COULDN’T EVEN BRING OURSELVES TO DO THAT?

It is jaw-dropping how oblivious many believers are about the moment they are living.  Trump is a divine disruption–a merciful pause button to give the church a chance to keep America from going off a socialistic cliff.  So far, most in the church have done little to act on this mercy, let alone appreciate it!  But I thank God for my president!

And what has the church done to repay Trump for his nameless, daily agony on our behalf?  Many reward him with apathy, ingratitude and abandonment.  My friend, we are about to pay an incalculable price if we don’t get a right view of this hour.

I am sorry to say this but…Satan has seduced many preachers who lead empires and independent kingdoms. They—at this hour—will not unify to speak to the nation as one voice.  They can’t afford to offend for the sake of their empires.  Little do they know that if the Left gets its way they’ll have no empire left to defend.

Mario is there any hope?  Yes, but we need God put electrode paddles to our faintly beating hearts.  We need holy rage, holy boldness.  We need to talk to every believer we know and wake them up to vote and to tell others to vote.

I realize that it takes courage to support Trump and our faith at this hour.  Just remember, right now it is hard but if we lose in November it will go from hard to impossible.

No one believes in miracles more than I—and that’s just what we must have at this hour.  We need a miracle of repentance, boldness…but it all begins with humble appreciation that we have this man in the White House.

There will never be a more important election than this one.  Your vote will never mean more than now.
