Business as usual has proven to be a colossal failure. The massive mega churches in the Golden State—with their tens of millions of dollars—have not made a dent in the greatest moral meltdown in California’s history.
California is just 24 hours away from a law—California Assembly Bill 2943—that can forever change how Christians will be treated in this state. It could also, easily lead to banning Bibles.
Have you seen any organized protest? Do you hear many mega church pastor call for action on the final Sunday before the Senators vote? My guess is not much. I did get wind of a common theme: We don’t need to do anything because the gates of hell would not prevail against us.”
Such arrogance has taken its toll on believers. One lady—influenced by this thinking—said this on our Facebook page: “the Church is awake and powerful in California.” A brother responded, “Then why is California going to hell in a hand basket?”
Which begs a bigger question: why did the gates of hell prevail in so many places…even inside some churches? Look at these verses again to see why:
Matthew 16:18 “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
Jesus said: “I will build.” There are two kinds of churches: The one He is building, and the one man is building. Can anyone deny California is overrun by man made religious empires?
Yes, they look right on the outside, and they are Christian, but they are disconnected from the life of Christ. Jesus said, “I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.” -John 15: 5,6
Christ will build something through the preacher who abides in Him. But relying on a fad growth model cuts them off of from the life of God. Cut branches don’t dry up instantly—man made churches can thrive for a season on leadership skills and marketing talent. Human powered religious centers are sustainable until the right crisis arrives.
There is a devastating cost to these manufactured churches—and they anger God. He is angry that they have dulled the Body’s natural ability to sense danger. He is enraged that they kept his sheep from preparing for the moral landslide in California.
It grieves the Holy Spirit that they not only remained silent about wickedness, they actually opposed those who tried to obey God. Heaven is screaming at their guilt! Just when they needed to drive back demonic power, and catalyze moral awakening…they instead, tacitly approved of the wickedness.
The guilty know who they are. They knew it the first time they told a saint they couldn’t raise their hands in worship. They knew it when they began banning gifts of power, living by the clock, and leaving out Bible turths.
Now the Lord is signaling that a storm is coming. To set the record straight and to bring revival, God must expose their false foundations. This breaks my heart. It makes me weep.
Jesus warned about these storms: “But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”- Matthew 7: 26,27
Think of it as mercy if God brings your house down. At least your folly is revealed and you can repent before you stand before God.
If God turns you over and allows your charade to go on, that would be the worst. In this case, your empire becomes a trophy of hell. Millions of dollars are nothing to Satan to subsidize a factory of false faith and synthetic Christians. At that point, God will see no difference between you, Hollywood, Godless liberals, or even the porn industry. To Him you’re doing equal damage.
My prayer is that this gets to compromised preachers in time. I know some of them. They know what they are doing is not right…that’s why they suffer greatly. They harbor tremendous guilt, loneliness, and emptiness.
Frances Chan is an example of a man who would not compromise—he pastored a mega church in Simi Valley. Something profound gripped him. To the utter shock of almost everyone, he left all to begin a highly effective discipleship work in the Tenderloin area of San Francisco (an area I know well from ministering on those streets.) God filled his hunger for the life of Jesus to flow through him.
I am not saying every pastor has to leave their church. I am saying that worshiping size, prestige, and celebrity above the moving of the Holy Spirit has been total disaster for California. God has declared an end because there is too much at stake.
Now that Sacramento is out of the closet and is declaring war on His Church…God will not wait for you any longer. This could be a final warning. God is directing these scriptures to lukewarm leaders and lukewarm churches in California:
Revelations 3: 4 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write,
‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.” Amen.
On the eve of the most dangerous law ever written against California believers—shocking silence has fallen on the church here. Look on Facebook. They are not even talking about it. Do you see a groundswell of action? Are state senators being flooded with calls and emails? Did your mega church even say anything about it yesterday? I am guessing nothing was said.
Don’t tell me I am writing too many warnings about this. Paul said in Acts 21: 31 “Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.” Like Paul, I am not going to stop warning you.
Others claim I am overstating the threat. If anything, I am understating the danger. Those who are not alarmed have either not read the law or they refuse to believe their eyes. So here goes again:
California Assembly Bill 2943 passed and has been sent to the State Senate for final approval. Jerry Brown has already said he would sign it into law if the Senate approves it. If he does it will be a point of no return.
Here is what the new law would do: It will prohibit resources concerning treatment or ministry in order to reduce or eliminate same sex attraction or gender dysphoria. Essentially, conferences, counseling, teaching, books, or publications, where money is exchanged for the resource, would be prohibited. This is dangerous.
Fully enforced, this law would ban the sale of Bibles in California. Moreover, this law is a gateway law—it will lead to even more laws that persecute Christian faith.
The Body of Christ, in the Golden State is in a do or die situation. Please don’t bend Bible verses out of context so you can bury your head in the sand. If you believe it can’t happen here, you are not only part of the problem, you are denying what Christians in other countries suffer. Other nations have had moments when the simple use of democracy would have prevented the loss of their freedoms.
Is there still hope to turn this crisis around? The answer is clear: there is only hope if we take action. Here is what I am asking you to do right now.
Understand the danger of this law and why you oppose it. This is vital so you can make sense to State Senators. You already see how California flouted the Constitution with their sanctuary law. This new law openly violates freedom of speech and freedom of religion.
Use social media to get Christians in California to email and call their state senator. Even if you don’t live in California you can still contact those you do know. And you can pray. At the end of this blog you will see a link to contact the State Senate. Again, use your social media accounts to broadcast this urgent threat to the church. Share this blog with as many as possible.
My final words are to all voting age Christians in California: it is time to put aside every excuse. Don’t delay! I am not exaggerating…Assembly Bill 2943 that will lead to banning the Bible in California. WE MUST ACT BEFORE THURSDAY.
Again, when you email or call your Senator be firm but polite. Tell them you will be voting in the next election and that you will be campaigning for politicians who reflect your values.
Use this link to find your state Senator. http://senate.ca.gov/senators
Comey and Mueller are the tip of the iceberg. They are small fish in a much bigger tank. Before we get to that, here’s a quick refresher on what brought us to this point:
Comey breaks the law to save Hillary. Realizing his cover is blown—at the last minute—he reopens the investigation. Trump wins. Comey, Mueller and the deep state—who worked to prevent Trump’s election—pivot to run Trump out of office.
Comey is fired. Both sides agreed he needed to be fired until Trump did it. Comey takes the next step in the game plan. He leaks lies about Trump to the media so that the prechosen Mueller—his friend, and fellow Trump hater—gets in as special prosecutor. The needed witch hunt begins. The Russian collusion fairy tales lives on without accountability. This soap opera is wearing thin on Americans.
The multi-headed monster brainwashes a majority of millennials to believe the values we have honored for thousands of years suddenly are racist, sexist, and must be eradicated.
Mobs scream at conservatives. Professors invent micro-aggressions, cultural appropriation, and safe places. Suddenly, victims are everywhere and statutes must be torn down, careers destroyed, insane boycotts enforced, and every crisis must be seized to advance the lie.
They doctor research to create pseudo-sciences about gender, weather, and equality. Borders are destroyed to fatten the voter rolls of the left. Because the end justifies the means, the collateral damage doesn’t matter. Only, now, this cynical viewpoint is losing its hold.
This is war. They don’t have to tell the truth, they can ruin lives with lies, they can even justify the murder of innocent Americans. This too is becoming outrageous to many who were on the fence.
Social media, news media, and the Democratic Party are only some of the arms of this monster.
The goal to wipe out Judeo-Christian influence in America is now painfully clear to more Americans. The left is desperate to remove the last firewall against their revolution. Marriage, parental rights, guns, and civil discourse all must go or they have no hope of winning.
But things are not going according to their plan. Something unexpected has happened. They are forced to expose their true colors and their true target before they were ready. Satan is overplaying his hand. Conservatives and Christians are no longer the only ones who are disgusted.
Here is an example: Jimmy Kimmel asked Roseanne Barr, who now supports Trump, why she had changed. She said, “I haven’t changed, it’s all of you who have gone wacko left.” Oops there it is.
A city worker walks into a Motorcycle shop and fines it for flying military flags. A veteran who was shot three times in combat protested. The city worker looked at the veteran and said, “you did nothing for our country.” The video went viral and the city totally backed down and rejected the worker.
Another thing that wasn’t supposed to happen was a creative writing professor at California State University at Fresno who said this about Barbara Bush right after her death:
“Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal,” When people were outraged she said, “this is what it’s like to be an Arab American Muslim American woman with some clout online expressing an opinion. Look at the racists going crazy in my mentions right now,” she tweeted.
The writer taunted those attacking her, said she was a tenured professor who makes $100,000 a year. “I will never be fired,” she tweeted. The university said, “oh yes we can.” I don’t believe this woman meant to melt down and manifest this demon. I believe this extremism is a sign that evil is being driven to extremes.
The left quickly disavowed her but it’s too late. The all too common hatred of the left is out of the bag. The backlash against her was swift and overwhelming.
We who are filled with the Holy Spirit have a unique advantage and responsibility. We understand demonic activity. The entire strategy against our freedom is demonic. These cracks in the armor of the monster are a sign of answered prayer. It shows us that our stand against the powers of darkness is working.
The masters of the left don’t want you to realize why Trump is still so popular. And why Obama, Hillary Clinton, Jerry Brown, and CNN look more and more crazy every day.
We are seeking God for revival. That is forcing the left to be more extreme and obvious than they want to be. I am not saying this is going to be an easy battle or that it won’t get worse. What I am saying is this rush to extremism is a sign we can’t ignore.
Time for us to come into unity. Time for us to increase our prayers. Time to expect a gigantic implosion of the war against our freedom. The war is against us…but if God be for us who can be against us?
What can we do about the demons that are strangling America? Can we dismantle their ramparts? They have brought bitter division, mass addiction, and total deception. Can we stop them? Not only can we, it is our sworn duty to tear them down.
The Bible says “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God…2 Corinthians 10:4,5
The Bible says “cast down every high thing.” Most preaching and teaching today leaves the impression there is very little we can do. But that begs a question…
If we can’t tear down strongholds isn’t God is guilty of child abuse on a grand scale? He is guilty of letting Paul awaken a deep hope that can never be fulfilled. The whole point of 2 Corinthians 10: 4 and 5 was to provoke the church to take up the mighty weapons of God.
Want to know why there is so little preached about actually taking ground back from the devil? Let me give an example. Remember the woman who shot up the Youtube offices? Her story will be buried because it doesn’t advance the narrative of the left. She had Muslim background. She was enraged over Youtube’s censorship and bias. Protecting Islam, and hiding their nationwide censorship is a priority.
Likewise, there are two elements in the modern church that must silence the message of victory over demons to stay in business. They are the therapeutic church, and the gloom and doom church.
The therapeutic church must focus on happy talk and self-fulfillment. Shaking up their comfort zones with talk of warfare threatens attendance. To survive, they must distract Christians to lesser goals and lower living. They are guilty of unwittingly helping the devil to keep the army of God powerless.
Gloom and doom preachers keep the church on the defensive by telling them to take cover. Fear sells books, conspiracy theories sell survival, not revival. Gloom and doom prophets—like good democrats—must cheer on global domination, global warming and global disasters to keep Christians buying. They do not equip you to confront and conquer evil because they don’t believe it’s possible.
Now I want to make you mad—not just mad—I want you to be infuriated at what Satan has done to America. He has built a machine—an evil, wicked, massive machine. Facebook, Google, Youtube and Twitter are working parts of this hideous mechanism. Other components include most of the print press and news media.
Another tentacle of this device is on campus. It’s there to poison young minds. The toxic cloud of indoctrination goes all the way down to grammar schools robbing children of their innocence.
The machine hates Christianity. It hates Israel. It hates the family and every form of Biblical truth. All subtly is gone. The Marxist insanity once whispered in back alleys now struts its stuff on main street.
So many preachers today remind us, “it’s all in God’s hands.” While that is a comforting truth it is not the one we need right now. That has been used to make Christians passive.
But everywhere you look in the Bible it is against passivity and advocates action: “fight the good fight of faith…” “Endure hardness as a good soldier…” “Resist the devil…” “Take the sword of the Spirit…”
God has chosen to act in answer to prayer. He waits until His people rise and take their rightful place in the arena of battle. Young David saw the stalemate. No one challenged Goliath. David couldn’t stand it. He offered himself to God. God is looking for someone like that today—someone who can’t live with evil, who can’t stomach the perversion, and is enraged to see God dishonored. Someone God can use to turn the tide of America.
If there is one question this blog asks it is this: Are you so filled with holy rage that you are willing to lay down your life in order to provide God with an opportunity to vindicate His name before this blasphemous generation?
Mario what should I do?
-Pray different than you do now. Stand between heaven and earth as a true intercessor. Invoke the Name above all Names to get to the very Throne of God with your petition. Do it the way Moses raised the rod of Aaron over the battle. When you pray, pray violently, pray exactingly, detailing the damage you want done and where you want it done. By the Spirit, speak directly to evil powers. Call them out and cast them down.
-Talk about God different than you do now. Why should you apologize? What you have works. What they have doesn’t work. Arm yourself with your testimony and the blood of the Lamb. Challenge the double standard. Why is Jesus the only thing this supposedly open-minded generation won’t talk about.
-Plan events that the Holy Spirit can use to bring revival. Azusa Street was a small effort that exploded into unimaginable proportions. How dare anyone think that your small meeting can’t be used in a massive way?
There are many more things we can do to get out of fear and get into a great victory. Here is the great promise : When God sees someone take up the mighty weapons of God—in the Name of Jesus—and attempt the impossible—God will muster all of the resources of heaven to bring that someone total victory.
Every day since my injury I have written an original blog. It’s one way I make the devil pay for attacking me. This the is one I have been waiting to post. But there’s a catch.
The catch is not a lot of people read about this subject. This should not surprise us. Since this is the most powerful way to stop Lucifer, he is trying to bury its very existence. So, if no one wants to hear it, then what made me go ahead and write it? You did.
I have been profoundly moved and encouraged by the growing hunger for the deep things of God in our readers. So what is the most important thing?
To get our answer we must first reach a conclusion about America. Arthur Matthew said, “The central influences of life are being taken over by men from the bottom levels of society in contrast to earlier generations. God’s authority in society is mediated from the top in the punishing of evil and the rewarding of good. But when control is taken over by the men at the bottom, we may be sure that the devil is in it.”
Satan is behind the marches, the media bias, the deepening immorality. The men from the bottom of levels have seized this moment to erase Judeo-Christian values. All of it—taking the guns, destroying marriage, voter fraud, abortion, open borders, are just ploys to bring America under the control of demonic power.
Yes, I am a political conservative. I comment on all those subjects. But I know that ultimately, I must deliver a direct blow to Satan and his minions, by the power of the Holy Spirit, or I will never see America set free. The crisis is the church doesn’t know how to do this.
We wrestle not with flesh and blood but with principalities and powers. Sadly, the church hardly wrestles at all. You know that most Christians around you have no clue how to oppose or pray down the powers that control our culture. I hope you want to learn how—because that my friend is the most important thing I have learned.
Many have come to rely on this blog for different reasons. I am convinced that the greatest service this blog can provide is only now beginning to appear.
It came as I was angry and frustrated spending so much time on my back. I felt helpless to doing anything important—I needed to get back in the battle. The Holy Spirit said I could do the most important thing I have ever done—right here in this room.
I could remove demonic barriers. I could disrupt evil plans from my room. But strongholds and barriers are not removed by God’s omnipotence until the believer takes the initiative and stands his ground in the heavenly places to engage the powers of evil that are causing our national perversion—the forces that are causing all the misery in our culture.
Those who can take their stand between heaven and hell and pray—not like we are praying now, but praying with the full realization of the Cross, and the victory Jesus won there.
Arthur Matthew describes it this way: “they take their position in Christ in the heavenlies and wrestle with and withstand the powers of evil that are manipulating the willing puppets on the streets.”
The kind of resistance that drives Satan back—that cuts off the supply of his puppets here on earth—brings into confusion those who would do us harm, cannot be done arrogantly.
Listen to more of Matthews:
Such resistance against supernatural powers is not done boastfully or presumptuously, but humbly as befits those who realize that they have no might in themselves and t they owe everything to the grace and power of God. The exercise is not a call for self-advertisement as some would make it. It is the ordained function of those who are in Christ and, I think we should add, of those who are filled with the Spirit. God does not commission men not filled with the Spirit to fight his battles. Paul was filled with the Holy Spirit when he confronted Elymas the sorcerer and exposed the devil’s attack and defeated him (Acts 13:9). It is not to be passed over that the command to be filled with the Spirit comes in the context of the Christian’s walk on earth and his warfare in the heavenlies.
I am learning to cut off the devil’s power through prayer—prayer in a new and living way for America. I believe that this is what you crave and together we can unleash this great power of prevailing prayer right now.
Remember the horror you felt when you thought Hillary might be president? Save that feeling, you’ll likely need it this November. Up until today I could say Republicans had an edge for the midterms because of money and the victories Trump has won. Now, I can’t say that.
An old familiar virus is infecting the church. It is removing the sense of urgency that got Trump Elected. It is bringing back failed ideas that sidelined the church in two disastrous presidential elections.
In 2008 we were warned what Barack Obama would do. Pastors didn’t think it was right to get involved in politics. On top of that, millions of Christians, with a murky understanding of the Bible voted for him. Those fallacies are back in the church.
Obama ended up being far worse than we could have imagined. The vast machinery of the left that he set in place is still dismantling our freedom. How soon we forget the price of apathy.
By taking the House and the Senate, the left can do as much damage as having Hillary in the White House. The first thing they will do is impeach Donald Trump. While it will take more than impeachment to remove him from office—they will move to do that next.
Before you write me off as an alarmist let me ask some simple questions?
Do you see Christian Leaders trying to rally the church to stop leftist candidates? Think about what everyone is preaching right now. Do you hear anything about the looming threat to our freedom and our children’s? My guess is that you don’t.
Do you notice how many in the church are apathetic because they think that Trump’s victory is the only real victory we need? They are blissfully ignorant of the need for a whole new effort to organize and defeat the coming threat.
Do you realize that there is only one thing you need to know to vote in the midterm election? It goes beyond the fact that they want to take away the second amendment, they would to return to the deficits and government regulations that were strangling our economy and they would go back to the foreign policy that endangered us.
Here is the one thing you must remember: The Democratic Party has declared war on Christianity. Think about it…
Who bankrupted Christian bakers? Who devastated the Little Sisters of the Poor? Who told our chaplains not to mention Christ to our soldiers? Who told pastors they would lose their tax exemption if they told their congregations how to vote? Who put Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s nonprofit status in suspense for telling voters to vote their conscience? Who booed God and Israel at their convention? Who changed marriage? Who made your children go to schools with transgender bathrooms?
