WHY WE DON’T COMPROMISE

At Mario Murillo Ministries we see things differently because we were born different.  From the very first we faced persecution.   While I was still in high school I preached in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco—ground zero for the ‘love and peace’ movement.  Moving across the Bay to Berkeley meant going from the frying pan into the fire. 

The instant we hit Berkeley we had to decide:  What we would preach?  How would we preach it?  Then, as now, people were trying to create a Godless utopia.

If our message was of human origin, or if there were even a speck or a flaw in its nature, the crucible of Berkeley would have blown it to smithereens.  Instead, unexplainable power appeared at each point where the ministry was threatened.  Something out of this world would always step in and provide words, resources, ideas and miracles, exactly when we needed them.

Not once in that cauldron of revolution, did we feel the need to rebrand Christ, or present a ‘new and improved’ Gospel.

For years, there has been a rising tide calling for Christians to “keep your faith to yourself.”  Many modern pastors—and even the Pope—have joined the chorus asking Christians to ‘tone it down.’ Yet our tent is packed with the very people who are supposed to be turned off by a direct approach.

Consequently, many churches have retreated into a cultural bubble where they do everything but preach the Gospel.  We have entertained, amused, inspired and distracted, but we have not converted America.  Because of this, the average Christian can defend neither their faith, nor marriage, and cannot even state why the Bible is the inspired word of God.

The original reason that the Church adopted this “indirect approach” was to get society to like us.  What we got was just the opposite.  Our compromised message has fueled greater contempt for the Church.

The media is now maligning the message of Jesus every day.  Francis Spufford said, “They think we believe in a load of Bronze Age absurdities. We promise the oppressed ‘pie-in-the-sky’ when they die; we are too stupid to understand why what we believe is irrational, and we are savagely judgmental.”

Atheists call us a threat to human progress.  Secular progressives condemn us as hating the poor, homosexuals, and women.

How is it possible, that after all the work we have put into removing the “offensive” parts of our message, that society is even more offended?  The answer is that there is a small but loud faction that hates Christ. 

We at Mario Murillo Ministries violently, totally, and utterly disagree with the notion that we should ‘tone down’ the Gospel in America.  There are millions of innocent bystanders who have not rejected Christ.  They are simply caught in the middle between haters telling lies and the misfiring sermons of voices that are too timid to tell the truth.  We must take our message to these millions who are trapped in the middle. This is why the answer is not to ‘tone it down’ but to turn it up!

The same Holy Spirit that outfitted our ministry to face the city of Berkeley will equip us to mount a fresh invasion of our nation.

Now let me get to the goal of this letter.  We have learned through every trial and breakthrough that God does not just give guidance, He also gives a plan.

We have a plan.  I can say without apology that this plan has come to us from the Holy Spirit.  Again and again, the Spirit of God has used events in the Bible as a model for what we should do. The verses below reveal a three-point plan that was given by an angel to the disciples when the church was gravely threatened.

17 “But the high priest rose up and all who were his supporters, that is, the party of the Sadducees, and being filled with jealousy and indignation and rage, 18 they seized and arrested the apostles (special messengers) and put them in the public jail. 19 But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and, leading them out, said, 20 “Go, take your stand in the temple courts and declare to the people all the words of this Life.” (Acts 5:17-20)

Embedded in those simple words, are our instructions for facing the onslaught of the current leftist revolution in America.

1.Take a stand. We cannot judge other ministries. We can only answer for what God asks us to do. He has ordered us to take a stand.  There is no confusion about what the angel was asking the men of God to do.  He was telling them to stand their ground in their nation.  This is not just a physical act, it is also moral and spiritual. We must take a stand against Satan’s agenda for America and we must take a stand for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We take a stand because we belong in the national conversation.  America has a drug, divorce, suicide, anger, and atheism problem.  Our voice needs to be heard because we carry the most immediate and effective cure for everything that is hurting America.  The angel was reinforcing to the apostles that their message was valid and urgent. And so is ours today.

2. Take your stand in the temple courts. Ours is not an obscure message that should be whispered in the secret places of society. The temple courts were the heart of Jerusalem. The angel was clearly instructing them to raise their voices in the very center of their culture.

In that same way we must go where the people are and where the biggest lies are being told.  The angel gave them an exact location to take their stand and that location spoke volumes to the apostles.  God is serious about making a difference in the culture.

This is why the tent is perfect. It is a movable miracle that can be pitched in the areas where pain and misery are unchallenged.

3.Tell all of the words of this Life. What a scathing rebuke to ‘popular’ Christianity. While Christian celebrities scurry to and fro to find buzzwords to replace the core doctrines of the Bible, here is an angel telling the apostles that they must tell all the words of this Life. They cannot leave out a single benefit or a single one of the demands of the message of Jesus Christ.

How right that angel was.  There is life in those words.  There is life in the blood of Christ, the cross and the resurrection.  There is such powerful and amazing life in them that no mountain of eloquence or cunningly devised sermon can begin to match.

If only we would learn to brave the offense of the cross in our preaching!  We would find that very soon the supernatural life of God would overtake our preaching and create miracles in people that infinitely surpassed the results of the current ‘seeker-friendly’ preaching.  Society would not care about the demands in our message because of the changes they would see in their souls, minds and bodies.

In city after city, we will take a stand in the heart of that city and tell all the words of this Life! NO COMPROMISE!

These 5 Things

Things are going to get even crazier. Yes, there is little doubt that we are going to see a scorched earth political campaign from the Left.  They will be carpet bombing the nation with propaganda.  The flood of fake news, character assassination, and criminal activity during the election season will be worse than anything you have ever seen before.  At a certain point, it may look impossible for our side to win.  However, I know we can—because I know God wants to do a miracle.

I have sought the Lord.  I have spent much time praying, studying, thinking, and writing.  Last night it hit me.  There are 5 things we can do, and if we do them I know Trump will be reelected. Here they are:

1. Realize that there are more of us than you know. There are millions who love Jesus and who also love America and who support our President.  It is not necessary for you to engage in endless debates or try to change anyone’s mind—all you have to do is to get those who are already like-minded to become active.

Activate them by telling them what is at stake.  They must know that the Democrat agenda for America is the Spirit of Antichrist, pure and simple. It is the instrument by which virtue, freedom, and justice will be removed and our cities turned into institutional hell holes.

Ask if they are registered to vote.  Ask what they plan to do, and make sure they vote.  Talk to them about studying a sample ballot so that they will be prepared to vote correctly.  Talk to them about early voting.  Make sure they know where to vote.

2. Talk to your pastor. Make sure you don’t threaten to leave the church if you don’t get your way! Just gently ask if he or she would consider instructing the Body on what is at stake.  One fact should outweigh everything else:  THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS DECLARED WAR ON CHRISTIANITY.  You are not lying or exaggerating when you tell that to your church leader.

Spiritual leaders need to know they are not ‘getting political’ by being vocal about the election.   It’s the Democrats who have gotten anti-God.  It is a natural extension of a preacher’s calling to destroy the works of Satan which, in this case, is the Left’s plan to drive the church underground.

3. Educate yourself on the issues and take public stands. No, I don’t want you glued to cable news, but you should be able to defend the reasons why you are pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, and why you support the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Yes, you can win debates and change minds.  When your child comes home from school a victim of leftist encroachment, you should know your parental rights.  I have found that many of the ideas of the Left are easily defeated by the Truth. Young minds often believe the silliness liberal teachers are spouting because they have never heard an opposing view.

Write letters to editors.  Call in to radio shows.  You’ll be amazed at how much noise you can make, and how many minds you can change.

4.Know that by taking stands against delusional leftists you are not being unloving.  Paul knew when to stand up for his civil rights: Acts 16:36: “So the keeper of the prison reported these words to Paul, saying, “The magistrates have sent to let you go. Now therefore depart, and go in peace.” 37 But Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out.” 38 And the officers told these words to the magistrates, and they were afraid when they heard that they were Romans.”

Paul knew his rights, and he wasn’t concerned that he might appear to be unloving.  He forced a political change in that city.

5.Understand warfare intercession. Prayer can’t be polite in this election cycle. It must be intense.  It must be targeted.  It must be deliberate and very specific. It must discern what is happening.  Arthur Matthews wrote, “Principalities and powers in heavenly places have mustered their unseen array, rigged their Trojan horse, infiltrated society and opened the gates for a flood of evil to take over.”

Once they have been alerted to that inescapable fact, the soldiers of Jesus must set themselves to unleash heaven upon the powers of evil.  Tragically, most believers are ignorant of the invisible battle.  Edith Schaeffer said that “there is a deadness, a blindness, an insensitivity among many Christians, for they refuse to recognize the war in which they are involved.”

The good news is that Jehovah only needs a handful of true intercessors to thwart Satan’s plans in this coming election.  However, it is imperative for you to understand your duty and your authority.  Again, Arthur Matthews wrote, “Barriers are not moved by God’s omnipotence until the believer takes the initiative and stands his ground in the heavenly places to engage the powers of evil that are directly the cause of the ground-level troubles, and resists them in the name of the Victor of Calvary.”

When the enemy came to steal Israel’s water, Moses took action to cut off demonic power at the source:  Exodus 17:8: “Now Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim. 9 And Moses said to Joshua, “Choose us some men and go out, fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand.””

So long as Moses held up the rod over the battle, the Amalekites were defeated.  You know the rest, Aaron and Hur held up his hands until victory came.

Hold up the standard of God in prayer.  Hold it over the demons that are driving the Left to their insane extremes.  Let your intercession disrupt them.  Watch as God divides, confuses, and neutralizes the strategies of devils!  Watch as He pours out His Spirit upon America in a Great Awakening—and we will see a miracle in November 2020!  Hallelujah!

 

 

 

LET’S STOP THE AGENDA OF EVIL

As I was standing in front of the U. S. Capital Building, it suddenly hit me: The Body of Christ is to have a mighty influence on America.  From the get-go, our founding fathers realized that morality and love of truth would breathe life into the Constitution.  They believed in liberty, not license.  They believed in freedom, not anarchy. They understood that the system of government they had created must work in concert with God fearing, hardworking, freedom loving citizens.

The church refuses to face the truth today, which is why we are powerless in the face of our ongoing national destruction.  We must face the facts.  We must see that the Loony Left is a weapon of Socialist tyranny that is about to kill America. We already see their death in the disastrous programs meant to help the poor.

Ben Franklin said, “I am for doing good to the poor, but…I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed…that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”

Right now, 49.2 percent of all Americans are receiving benefits from at least one government program, and the U.S. government has spent an astounding 3.7 trillion dollars on welfare programs over the past five years.

The leftists believe they are the only ones who care about poverty, racism and injustice.  Secular progressives will say they love the poor.  If so, then they have loved Detroit to death.  After 61 years, and after receiving nearly a trillion dollars in Federal aid, Detroit has been reduced to a pile of rubble by liberal policies. The city is a horror show of abandoned factories, illiteracy, prostitution, gangs, and homeless camps.  The same damage can be seen in any urban area where these programs dominate. It is an agenda of evil.

Michael Snyder said, “In 1960, the city of Detroit was the greatest manufacturing city that the world had ever seen.  Nearly two million people lived there, and it had the highest per capita income in the United States.  That may be hard to believe, because today it actually has one of the lowest per capita incomes of all of our major cities.  Over the decades more than a million people have left the city, and thousands of abandoned homes have been torn down.

It has become known as a mecca of violent crime and poverty, and now a viral video is giving an unpleasant view of Detroit after dark.

The clip, called Driving through Detroit at night, was filmed by a woman who was a passenger in a car going around the Motor City and was posted to Twitter at the weekend.

It shows terrifying scenes of gangs gathered on the sidewalk, prostitutes lifting up their skirts and dancing, and even a man being run over by a car on purpose.

Many people openly wonder what happened to Detroit, but it really isn’t much of a mystery at all.”

We poured untold billions into Detroit, but corrupt Democrat Leaders gutted this city. Now they will gut America.

The Democrat agenda for America is the Spirit of Antichrist pure and simple. It is the instrument by which virtue, freedom, and justice will be removed and our cities turned into institutional hell holes.

I challenge you: name a single city that has been run by Democrats for decades that is not a city corrupt to the walls, leading the nation in rampant crime, awash in drugs and perversion, and looking like a third world country. Having learned nothing, they have made the Squad with their extremist policies, the face of the Democrat Party.

Leftist ideology appeals to three kinds of people:

1. Those who do not want to work.

2. Those who want to gain power by posing as champions for the poor.

3. Those who feel self-loathing and guilt for the sins of their ancestors.

Social progressives will accuse me of blaming the victim.  I am not blaming the victim—I am naming the villain. 

The church should be a great force for saving America, but we have been neutralized. The media changed the rules about how Christians and government relate.  On the one hand, they made it fashionable to bash the church, the Bible, and Israel.  On the other hand, they made it wrong for the church to speak out, and have directly attacked our freedom to preach the Gospel.

The Left’s tactics are trying to make the church look hateful just for having an opposing view.  Many famous pastors have let this slide because they did not want to appear racist.  Still others feared the IRS would remove their tax-free status.  Now we know we were wrong to be silent.

Another example is the Chicago area which has a larger number of shooting victims every week than were killed at Parkland. And people are fleeing in record numbers. Chicago, the county seat of Cook County, has had a huge population loss—the largest of any county in the country. Between 2015 and 2016 Cook County experienced a domestic migration loss of more than 66,000 people, “a staggering number of people to lose in a single year.” (Michael Snyder, Economist)

I believe that evil politicians should fear us.  Paul did not believe that his gospel integrity would be ruined by speaking out against evil leadership. Nor do I believe that my outspoken opposition to the pro-death Democrat Party is in any way inconsistent with love or truth.  For that matter, Christ did not worry that turning over tables and evicting the money changers would ruin His image of love and compassion.

Our silence has stemmed from another root: our decreased faith in the Gospel.  We have forgotten its surpassing power.  We do not remember the history of how the church has stemmed corruption in America in the past. We have forgotten the record of how men and women in the Bible have turned the tide of evil government. We have forgotten how effective the Gospel is in situations just like this.

We have forgotten that the Gospel is supernatural.

We must embrace the simple truth that government is a crippling counterfeit of the Gospel. And we must allow God to explode a fresh passion for the Gospel, the greatest of all messages. Then we will proclaim its truth with a powerful roar, and without apology!  Should we not have a bold and fiery national declaration of Christ, I shudder to think what will happen!

Please, ponder the words of John Adams written in 1798:

“While (America) remains untainted with the principles and manners which are now producing desolation in so many parts of the world: while she continues to be sincere and incapable of insidious and impious policy (practices): we shall have the strongest reason to rejoice in the local destination assigned us by Providence. But should the people of America once become capable of that deep (hypocrisy) towards one another and towards foreign nations which assumes the language of justice and moderation while it is practicing iniquity and extravagance, and displays in the most captivating manner the charming picture of…sincerity while it is rioting in (greed) and insolence—this country will be the most miserable habitation in the world: because we have no Government armed with power capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or (bravado) would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate (for the governing) of any other.”

Heed my warning: unless there is a Great Awakening in America, unless there is a new baptism of the Holy Spirit, and unless fresh fire falls upon the church, neither our Constitution nor any of the thousands of laws currently on the books will prevent the chaos that will surely bring about the collapse of the United States.

As God’s people we must quit showing tolerance for policies that are destroying America. We must shake off any and all embarrassment of the Gospel.  Yes, there have been abuses, but as Woodrow Wilson said, “The proof that the Gospel is divine is the preaching it has survived.” Even a small determined group of spirit-filled warriors preaching with unbridled boldness and total obedience is enough to stop this Democrat agenda of evil.

 

WHEN DOMESTIC TERRORISTS

This morning, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution labeling the NRA as a domestic terrorist organization. The resolution accuses the NRA, which is the oldest civil rights group and the most influential Second Amendment lobbyist in America, of spreading “propaganda that misinforms and aims to deceive the public about the dangers of gun violence,” promoting extremist positions and arming “individuals who would and have committed acts of terrorism” because of its advocacy.

If there is a category beyond hypocrisy, the Supervisors of San Francisco have found it. There is zero evidence that the NRA does anything to promote domestic terrorism—quite the contrary, they have reached 28 million children, teaching them about real “gun safety” through their Eddie Eagle Program.  But there is plenty of evidence to show that the government that rules San Francisco terrorizes their own citizens. What we have here is, in my opinion, a case of domestic terrorists calling someone else domestic terrorists.

I grew up in San Francisco. It was then a gleaming city and a great place for children. Now, no child should have to endure living there. That may explain why today there are more dogs than children in San Francisco.

Market Street holds innumerable good memories for me. Easter parades, fireworks, New Years Eve celebrations. Now it is a dystopian nightmare—an endless line of lawn chairs against the walls of stores, whose occupants sit in a stupor with glazed eyes as a smog-like cannabis cloud hangs over the streets.

Some, who have written about San Francisco, when referring to the vast amount of human waste and discarded needles, have said this city is worse than many cities in India.

Many middle class residents live in terror, sandwiched between the indifferent tech-billionaires and the ‘protected class.’ The homeless and illegal immigrants are the protected class.  Because I reach out and minister to them, I know that many homeless people are not evil. The innocent ones will be the first to tell you about the few who are deranged and prone to violence.

A PICTURE OF MEDICAL WASTE IN SAN FRANCISCO

Women in the city are regularly attacked by these few violent ones.  In an article entitled If The Left Cares About Women, Why Do They Let Homeless People Attack Women In San Francisco?, Kadya Sedgwick writes about a woman who fought off an attacker, a 25-year-old man named Austin James Vincent. But when he appeared in court on the charges against him for false imprisonment, attempted robbery, and misdemeanor battery, Judge Christine Van Aken let him go free, pending trial—without bail or any form of monitoring.

“The incident,” Sedgwick wrote, “brings into light the vulnerabilities of ordinary women living through what we in the San Francisco Bay Area politely refer to as the “homelessness crisis.” It’s a great irony that the city that prides itself on feminist traditions, the city of leading Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Dianne Feinstein and currently led by the feminist Mayor London Breed, turns a blind eye to the plight of women living among dangerous individuals.”

Here comes the real terrorism part:

Sedgwick cites her interview with a woman who said she “wished to remain anonymous because of the Democratic Socialists of America’s previous doxxing attempts related to her activism on behalf of the residents of her junkie-affected SoMa (South of Market Street) neighborhood.”

The woman said: “As a woman, I feel very vulnerable, helpless, and really scared. A prisoner in my home, afraid to walk outside after dark. Hearing my neighbors discussing self-defense, means of protection, and private security patrol is surreal.”

San Francisco is a sanctuary city, which is, in my opinion, another form of domestic terrorism.

A man who had been deported 5 times is back on the Streets of San Francisco, because of their stance on illegal immigrants and their sanctuary laws.  The jury acquitted Jose Ines Garcia-Zarate, 46, in 2017 of first degree murder, second degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, and assault with a semi-automatic firearm. He had admitted having fired the shot that killed a woman who was walking with her father and a friend along Pier 14 in the Embarcadero District of San Francisco one evening in 2015, 32 year old Kate Steinle.

The Washington Examiner reports:

“That conviction was overturned on Friday when the California court found that a judge failed to instruct the jury on one of Garcia-Zarate’s defenses.

“The family of Steinle filed a wrongful death suit against San Francisco earlier this year alleging the city’s status as an immigrant sanctuary unduly put their daughter at risk. The suit was dismissed by the lower court and that decision was upheld by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Which, by the way, is located in San Francisco. The suit also named San Francisco County Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi as responsible for the death of Steinle.

“The sheriff’s office had Garcia-Zarate in custody just three months prior to the shooting, but released him when the drug charges against him were dropped. The office ignored a request by federal authorities to hold Garcia-Zarate until they could take him into custody, an issue that became a flashpoint in the case.”

For every believer reading this, there is a lesson. Evil poses as good and points the finger of guilt, which rightfully belongs to them, at those who are innocent. We will see a lot more of this. We can only pray that the good people trapped in the madness of socialist San Francisco will rise up and throw the bums out. Meanwhile, I stand with the five million members of the NRA and the 120,000,000 million law abiding Americans who keep and bear arms, which is their right, to defend themselves from crime and tyranny.

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM?

A MANIFESTO FOR MY BLOG. Some have told me that when they see my posts that rebuke and warn, they wonder, “Mario, what is your problem?”  I do have a problem, but it is not what they think.  I am not negative, nor am I fearful.   I have not given up or given in.  None of those things are my problem.  My problem is of a different nature.

My problem is that I serve a God Who is limitless in power and wisdom, and His excellence infuses me with zeal to declare that we can be better, and we can do better, as a church and as a nation.

I see no place for compromise.  There is no reason to accept the slavery of the God-haters.  We are not supposed to sit down and shut up.   A weaker church with a smaller voice is not the new normal—it is blasphemy.

I believe Satan doesn’t stand a chance.  An amoeba would have a better chance of surviving on the surface of the sun than Satan has of surviving against God.  I believe that prayer and worship kills the devil’s lies.  I oppose any decision, by any leader, that is based on fear or unbelief.

Back in the day, we didn’t scare as easily.  Formerly, pastors didn’t have to seduce people into serving God.  We didn’t back down and we didn’t let ourselves starve on the table scraps of watered-down preaching.

I miss the days when the church was not the court jester to America, but was the conscience of the nation.  The church was a firewall against intellectual dishonesty, injustice, and depravity.  I miss those days.

But I am not railing because I am afraid those days are gone forever—it’s just the opposite.  I see no reason why we can’t have them back.  My resolve to bring those days back fuels my rebuke of pastors and secular officials alike.

Speaking of rebukes—let me clarify why I rebuke our leaders.  My rebukes are rooted in my conviction that America is a miracle.   We did not make ourselves great.  God made us great.  When you try to “fundamentally change America” and make her pro-late term abortion, pro-Islam, anti-Israel, anti-marriage, and anti-Christ, you are messing with God, and you need to know it.  You need to be rebuked.

When I rebuke our elected officials, I am not abandoning my call to the Gospel, I am preaching the true Gospel.   Look at Acts 3:14-15: “But you denied the Holy and Just One, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and killed the Prince of Life, Whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses.”

Peter unleashes a stinging charge that includes rebellion, because they denied the Holy One; perversion, because they chose Barabbas; and murder because they killed Christ when He was innocent.  Peter did all of this in the middle of a soul-winning sermon!

Don’t tell me, “Well, that was different.”  How can it be different?  Peter was giving the public and their leaders a tongue lashing for committing state sponsored murder, for engaging in tyranny, and for lying about it.  There is no difference.

But there is a big difference between Peter and many American preachers.  He did not worry that he would look hateful or unloving by leveling these charges.   He was not preaching to ‘make nice’—he was preaching to make disciples.   That is the ultimate love.

Peter also knew that the fate of Israel hung in the balance.  He was calling his nation back from disaster.  That is the same duty of every vessel of God in America: To call America back from disaster.

So let me ask you a question: What do you preach when you see history repeating itself?  No nation has ever done what we are doing right now that did not end in either a dictatorship or a totalitarian state.  Should I be silent?

Can you deny that Islamists are murdering Christians?  Can you deny that Democrats don’t care?  Do you see the Deep State cancelling our freedoms illegally?  Do you deny that our Constitution is being trampled upon?

The accusations of anger and extremism aimed at my writings begin to evaporate when you answer those questions honestly.   If anything, I am being too tame in confronting this disaster.

So the next time you wonder what is wrong with Mario, remember this:  My writing is driven by equal parts urgency and faith.  I cannot hold back because the fate of this nation hangs in the balance, and I cannot hold back because I know that my God loves America and is mighty to save.

FREEDOM

When the racists call everyone else racist—when the fascists call everyone else fascists—when those who are full of hate—call everyone else haters, and society listens, then freedom is, truly, just a candle in the wind.

When the Left says that words can be the same as violence, and then they are found to be guilty by their own inflammatory words and actions, then freedom is a candle in the wind.

As John Daniel Davidson said, “Is it not divisive and inflammatory for Democrats to refuse to enforce our borders while promising to give taxpayer-paid health care to illegal immigrants? Is it not divisive and inflammatory for sports stars and corporations to denounce the Betsy Ross flag and the national anthem as racist? Doesn’t that exacerbate a feeling of helplessness and dispossession, and fuel a whole spectrum of responses—from ordinary patriotism to outright xenophobia and racism?”

When thugs don masks and beat innocent people in MAGA hats and these terrorists are coddled by Democrats and leftist media, then freedom is a candle in the wind.

Elizabeth Warren—who is still uncertain of her own race—blamed Donald Trump for “advancing racism and white supremacy.” She and the others on the Left are all but calling for a race war. When war is declared and the side that does not want war is blamed for the war, then freedom is a candle in the wind.

Worst of all, we see how evil they are, that they can immediately politicize a massacre.  They don’t care about the victims of the shootings. Bullets tore into the bodies of innocent people. Did any of the voices of manufactured outrage care anything for the families who lost everything in an instant? The shattered lives do not matter to them. The incurable sorrow will get no compassion from them.  To them, these families are just a photo opportunity—a prop to be used to alarm a nation into voting for them.

Instantly, Beto O’Rourke said that President Trump was a “racist” and had “a lot to do with what happened in El Paso yesterday.” Sen. Cory Booker was even more blunt, saying, “Donald Trump is responsible for this.” When masses of people can’t see how evil this is, then freedom is a candle in the wind. 

Most sane people reject the Right Wing conspiracy theory that says international corporate and political elites in the West are intentionally replacing their native populations with immigrants, in order to enrich themselves.

However, the Left isn’t trying to deny this.  The New York Times ran a Michelle Goldberg column under the headline, “We Can Replace Them,” which closed with this line: “In a week, American voters can do to white nationalists what they fear most. Show them they’re being replaced.”

Again John Daniel Davidson says, “This isn’t a new idea on the Left, and it isn’t relegated to the fringe. Back in 2002, Ruy Teixeira and John Judis came out with “The Emerging Democratic Majority,” which popularized and mainstreamed the idea that white Americans would be replaced by a permanent majority coalition of non-white voters. Ten years later, after President Obama’s reelection, Teixeira took to the the pages of The Atlantic to argue that things were playing out just as he had predicted, and that if Democrats could keep giving Americans what they truly wanted—more welfare, more regulation, more government control over daily life—then “the emerging Democratic majority could be here to stay.”

More recently, turning the white nationalists’ “replacement” rhetoric on its head has become commonplace among Antifa protestors chanting “we will replace you,” a sentiment powerfully reinforced by the anti-Immigration and Customs Enforcement protestors who recently tore down an American flag outside an ICE facility and replaced it with the Mexican flag.”

When such utter tyranny can advance unchecked, and is protected by a news media that is corrupt to the core, then freedom is a candle in the wind.

However, freedom’s greatest enemy does not reside in the camp of leftists, but in the pews of churches. A soundly sleeping generation of believers is our greatest enemy. Their apathy is our deepest danger.

But all is not lost.

History shows us that God does not wait for the lukewarm to rise to their duty. Our God is a consuming fire.  Do you wonder, why God doesn’t do something? You see America being torn apart, battered into submission, and molded into some ugly weak version of her former self. All in the name of progress. When those who are the moral bottom of society become the loudest voices of influence, shouldn’t God act?

I believe He is acting. But it is happening in a wholly unexpected way. He is at war to save our nation. The real question is, “Are you ready to understand what your assignment is in His war to save America?”

In a last-ditch effort to save America, God will pour out His Spirit. It will not be within the “system” but outside celebrated circles. It will restore much of Spirit-filled Pentecostal churches from business-model-entertainment-centers back to a movement.  Many small churches will become ground zero for the Glory of God.

This event will not be painless. Wicked agendas will topple. False doctrine will die an early death due to the healthy appetite of young converts. Church empires will be given the ultimatum to return to dependency on the Holy Spirit or be brushed aside, and suffer total loss.

God’s miracle will be a great boon to some, but a horrendous event for others. It will be a day of rejoicing and a day of mourning. It will be a complete display of extremes. God will do what He has to do to save this nation.

In this hour, it is not enough to be saved and filled with the Holy Spirit—not nearly enough. Every soldier of God must know what God is doing in their time. The New Testament begins and ends with the drama of willing vessels having their lives interrupted, ruined for mortal pursuits, commissioned for great exploits, and then launched into an amazing adventure.

DON’T NEGOTIATE

Trump is right to Tweet about it.  And He is right not to apologize for it.  Trump questioning why billions of dollars have been poured into Democrat controlled cities which still remain rat holes is not racism, it is common sense.

Condemning Democrats for continuing the most corrupt and hare-brained investigation in American history is not obstruction, it is instruction—it is just plain logic.

Trump must keep Tweeting because it exposes corruption in a world where the Left has fought to make certain truths unsayable. They solemnly warn us that if we say certain things we will be shamed, and unemployable.  Because those threats do not work with Trump, he must keep using his weapon of Tweets.

The Left races to defend their own. They must show outrage—because, if Elijah Cummings is exposed as a corrupt do-nothing, others among them may be exposed, also.

But the biggest thing for Trump is that he should not apologize, because you don’t negotiate with crazy.

Alexandria says we need to spend 40 trillion dollars.  Nancy says that if Trump wins a second term, she will flood the House with committees and endless investigations.  Elizabeth says she is Cherokee because of trace elements in her DNA.   Hillary says Bill’s behavior was not as bad as Brett Kavanagh’s. Maxine Waters says God wants us to harass Trump supporters in restaurants.

The Democrat controlled House is doing absolutely nothing for their constituents—NOTHING. They are doing nothing about jobs, nothing about crime, nothing about healthcare or the infrastructure.  In fact, they are not doing anything else that affects your life. They are totally occupied with hating Trump.  And, it is crazy that those who elected these people are not outraged.

When they tell you they will give more money and benefits to those who broke into our nation illegally than they will give to either you, me, or to veterans, that is madness.

Say a man breaks into your home.  You got him dead to rights. Instead of leaving, he begins to act strangely and threatens you.  He claims he has a right to a part of your private property.  He even tells you that if you hurt him he will tell the police.  A cop arrives, who is not your normal cop.  For some reason this flaky officer finds merit in the burglar’s claim and suggests you find some common ground.  “Maybe you can let him use part of your house as a humanitarian gesture.” That is, well, you know— crazy.

We who support the President are not vying for some strange new world.  We merely wish to uphold the Constitution and the values that made America great.  For that we are condemned, threatened, and called vile names. Why should we apologize for doing what is right?

They are the ones who are crazy for condemning Israel for not giving in to Palestinian demands.  The fundamental demand of any of Palestinian offer of peace is that Israel must cease to exist.  You can’t negotiate with that kind of blind terrorism. That is why the Israelis have not, and never will.

University Presidents say no conservative should be allowed to speak on any campus.  That’s crazy. The Left is so gone that they have devolved from witch hunts, to witchcraft.  A group of leftist witches are formally putting hexes on all Republican leaders.  That is crazy! Appropriately, these witches are also making a donation to Planned Parenthood.  Of course they are!  Human sacrifice has always been a part of witchcraft.

The Left loves to say we are headed for a civil war.  That’s crazy.  Like true Confederates and plantation owners before them, Blue states want to secede from the Union.

They love to act like its 1860, when it is more like 1776, and the Loony Left is the British. We are in a fight for freedom from the curse of socialism. Oh, and need I mention that socialism is crazy?

Who is in the street wearing black masks and hitting people with bats?  Splinter News writer, Hamilton Nolan, penned an essay this week, warning that they are going to start using bombs. That is crazy.

This is no time to tell the rational people that they need to give in to insanity.

For Democrats, the next election has nothing to with policy or reasoned debate.  It is a referendum on madness.  The next election is about the American people seeing through the media shills, the false victims, and the bloodthirsty politicians—and voting to remain free.

So: Mr. President, Tweet away, and do not apologize. Because, you don’t negotiate with crazy.
