YOU ARE THE REAL TARGET

People love to call me an alarmist. But I know what I am talking about. The radical left has declared a very unusual kind of war on us—a war that Christian leaders will not admit and remain totally unprepared to fight.

The Trump victory has inflamed the left so much that two years later they are still totally rejecting the election and denying the rule of law.  Here is are the painful facts you must face:

Fake news: NBC poured 400 million dollars into Buzz Feed.  Buzz Feed released a tsunami of fake news that portrayed Trump as a pervert in Russia.  Only Trump was never there and we now know the entire incident was made up to destroy his reputation. Buzz Feed is only one of thousands of outlets that live to target you. The chilling part is that NBC, a gigantic company was willing to undermine America.

The California revolution: Behaving as if America had been taken over in a coup, California has declared itself a separate state for the resistance.  California Congresswoman Maxine Waters is once again moving for impeachment.   She began this impeachment crusade even before Trump took office! Again, Trump is not the real target.  California is a rogue state bent on changing your way of life.

What you must understand—the thing you must get—is, they are not just going after Trump—they are going after you.  I am talking about 80% of all Evangelicals and 63 million voters…especially young people who voted for Trump.   Young conservative Christians are in the cross hairs on campus for a reason. The media will now begin to attack Trump supporters as never before.

Get this! They are not just calling Trump a racist—they are calling you a racist.  They are not saying Trump hates Gays, Mexicans, and Muslim immigrants—they are saying you do.

According to them, supporting Trump makes you a despicable racist and hater who must have your rights revoked. They are trying to figure out a way to deny you employment and to deny your children an education.

Their election night 4-alarm leftist hissy fit is only the opening act.  Expect strikes, violent demonstrations, and a towering litany of acts of “civil disobedience.” As bad as it is now, just wait till the next election begins in earnest. You will witness a vileness and venom you never though possible in America.

Here is what I said on January 18th, 2017:  “Obama is not going away—He will lead the charge.  His true mission to undermine America will kick in now that he is no longer restrained by the presidency.  He will lead a confederation of movie stars, politicians, billionaires, Muslim leaders and minions in the United Nations. Trump legislation will be throttled at every turn.  The media will launch a withering nonstop assault on every word he says.” 

Not only did all of that happen, it is only now we are learning of the blind loyalty to him in the deep state and the crimes his toadies in the FBI were willing to perform at his behest. The Democrat Party is feverishly reconstructing America into a hostile land for conservatives and Christians. With Obama’s input they are imagining a post-Christian era. A nation without guns, without the protections of the constitution, and a single party.

As I said, they are not going after Trump they are going after you and me.  If this is true how then should we prepare?  Here are my heartfelt convictions of what we must do now.  

yes-they-are-going-after-you

  1. Don’t let them bully you, learn from history.  It is 1776 all over again.  An oppressive regime has illegitimately claimed power over us.  British rule then is very much like leftist rulers now.  Loyalists joined British forces in oppressing the colonists and told them that their elected officials were not valid.  Now they say Republicans are not valid.

The leftist elites are not British monarchs or red coats but they are telling us what we can and cannot believe.  They are seizing our rights.  T.V. Networks and billion dollar companies are working to overrule not just a free and fair election but a God fearing way of life.

The challenge of the church today is the same as it was in 1776.  Revolutionary war Christians understood that they could not be on the sidelines as their rights were being destroyed.   Their call was to stand for freedom.

kick-in

 

  1. We must fight with the weapons of God! Thank God, we are not waging physical war but we are fighting a spiritual war. To fight, we must pray and speak the Word of God.  We cannot afford to listen to those who say we should not speak out against Islam, immorality, or far left totalitarianism.

Some ask “won’t this make us look unloving and turn lost souls off to the Gospel?”  On the contrary, when we speak out with the power of the Holy Spirit it will shatter the strong delusion that is pervading our society. The demonic spell will be broken over them.

The early colonists knew they were building a nation that would be a lighthouse of the Gospel to the world.  Do we realize what they did? Do you see how the iron curtain that these celebrities and media tyrants are ringing down on us will silence the Gospel and leave Israel at the mercy of all her enemies.

  1. Build on prophecy: If you believe that Trump is a miracle that is a type of King Cyrus then act like it! Seize this divine opportunity to stand with policies that best reflect our values.  Don’t chicken out now that the heat is on.I can’t believe the Evangelical leaders who have their head in the sand. Just because this evil seems fantastic and unacceptable to your sensibilities does not make it any less real.

With the very same breath that we call Satan a liar…we must call falsehood out!  Preachers all over America must ring the bell of liberty in their pulpits and call out the intellectual frauds who are destroying our freedom.

They are not harmless actors and singers, they agents of tyranny that are not coming after Trump they are coming after you…but remember, if God be for you who can be against you?

Let’s shed the artificial niceness. It is nothing more than cowardice. There is too much at stake to be fretting over “how we are perceived.”  We must understand that we have lost elections for all the wrong reasons. It is because we didn’t unify…it’s because too many preachers have hoodwinked us into apathetic acceptance of this takeover.

The awakened believer must link with other awakened believers. They must dump the religious culture of compromise and huddle with those willing to pay the price to let God use them to transform America back to one nation under God. There are millions of us!

Oh, how the enemy has lied to the American church. If we find our voice—if we don’t break ranks—this leftist lie will die an early death. Come on child of God, what are you waiting for.  Don’t say this isn’t your battle. How’s that even possible when you are the real target?

Is George Soros funding division?

A video from the American Association of Evangelicals says this about George Soros: “through his many funding ventures, has been busily infiltrating the Christian base in America to divide, and ultimately conquer, the religious minded within the Republican Party.”

In the AAE press release they name Reverend Jim Wallis who was touring the states to get Christians to vote against Republicans.  “Rev. Jim Wallis and allies are now touring many states on ‘Vote Common Good’ buses to … split the evangelical vote before the mid-term elections.”  And in many ways they were successful.

The video shows a voice recording of Jim Wallis the leader of Sojourners ministry denying he got funds from George Soros.  Cheryl Chumley of the Washington Times said this:  “But guess what?  His denial’s proven a bit — umm, wrong.”

Soros-tied Open Society money and grant dollars have not only flowed by the hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Sojourners, AAE reported. But Soros-tied Open Society money and grant dollars have been flowing to the Sojourners for some time.”

Jim Wallis pictured with Clinton and Obama.

“Soros Funding of Sojourners Is Only the Tip of the Iceberg,” wrote National Review in August of 2010.  Not only that but this has been going on for years.  The Blaze reported this back in October 2011: ““George Soros Sends $150000 to Jim Wallis‘ Left-Wing Group Sojourners.”

The Sojourners has wholly given themselves over to the left but continues to masquerade as Evangelical Christians doing the work of Christ.

Their website says things like, “We are evangelicals, Catholics, Pentecostals and Protestants; progressives and conservatives; blacks, whites, Latinos, and Asians; women and men; young and old … [and] seek to discover the intersection of faith, politics, and culture,”

Their magazine says things like “No Wall Between Amigos.” And this: “Conservative Court-Packing Isn’t About Abortion — It’s About Culture: If the Right really cares about abortion, they should reduce poverty.” And this: “In the Midst of a Political Emergency: The administration is threatening the soul of this nation.”

They oppose Trump at every turn.  They espouse big government socialism.  Remember,  they were touring 31 states for the single purpose of getting Christians to vote for Democrats.

There’s nothing pro-Donald Trump, pro-conservative, pro-limited government, pro-Constitution about this group’s goals — or, for that matter, about the Vote Common Good bus tour.

The front organization for this tour is called Vote Common Good.  It’s leader Doug Pagitt said this: ““we believe the Trump administration needs to be restrained” and that he simply wants Americans to “consider the common good when they vote.”

Cheryl Chumley says “What’s going on here is not so much Christianity as it is partisan politicking under cover of religious teaching. It’s the furtherance of a George Soros style of progressivism, but cloaked in Christianity — and backed by George Soros bucks — and made all the worse by the initial denials of the George Soros ties.

Anyone can toss down a Christian card, even an atheist. But a clue to identify an anti-American enemy is the wolves always want Big Government, bigger government, a more powerful centralized system with weakened rights for the individual — and if it’s secret Soros dollars and Bible-thumping that gets them there, so be it.”

Be on guard!  Don’t be fooled and don’t forget that we are approaching the election of the ages.  This will be the single most important election in our lifetime.

A Crisis Point

Today thousands of sermons will be preached to millions of people. Some of it will do more harm than good—way more than you know.

I am not taking a swipe at all preachers. Most preachers are sincere men and women of God. However, these worthy voices are often drowned out by the modern preaching that leaves out the Cross of Christ, the Blood of Christ, Bible verses on sexual sin, and hell.

The modern preachers who leave all this out do it because they say they want to offer hope. Hope is their big word. Here and now, I am accusing them of offering at best an inferior hope and at worst a false hope.

Paul the Apostle had a totally opposite view about preaching hope. He said, “Therefore, since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech.” -2 Corinthians 3:12. To give hope these preachers leave truth out. Paul believed that to give hope you must leave it all in.

He said in Ephesians 6:19 “and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” Twice, he refers to boldness.

Again, in 2 Corinthians 4 he detailed why it is such a disaster to leave anything out: “Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not lose heart. 2 But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. 3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

Handling the Word of God deceitfully and putting a veil over it makes that preacher a villain to lost souls.  Worse still, that preacher is in cahoots with the devil. They put a veil over truth while Satan blinds people to it.

Every day we are lose ground because of this artificial preaching. Since He–the Holy Spirit– is also called the Spirit of truth. You cannot be anointed unless you are telling the truth.

Here is what this preaching has cost us so far: Because the church did not take a unified Biblical stand on sexual immorality the left has systemically canonized the lie that Christian doctrine is hate speech.

Today, Chick Fil A was banned from yet another airport. What did they do wrong? They stood by their Christian values and they gave money to Christian groups. City boards voted to shut them down because they gave to “hate” organizations. Had we taken a stand, we would not be in this bind.

More damage: these preachers made their congregations biblically illiterate. That is why a huge number of Christians including famous “gospel” singers don’t know the values of the Christian faith—don’t know how to answer their culture—don’t see anything wrong with abortion or same sex marriage—and don’t know how to vote.

Back to the issue of hope. I am asking these preachers a simple question: how can you say you are bringing hope if you leave out the truths that carry the hope?

Here is what I mean: real hope comes from true conversion. Only the soul that has repented and utterly opened themselves to new life can feel the surpassing hope of Christ. Let me show some examples of hope:

The Cross: until the soul knows it is lost—until it is broken by the sacrifice of Christ the true hope of Christ cannot take hold of them. But, brother, when it does it is awesome to behold. You will have a convert that is in church for all the right reasons. You have a walking miracle that is contagious.

The Blood of Christ: Only those souls that know the Blood was applied to their sin can feel clean—a moral clean that nothing else can give them. Moreover, the most dangerous young convert is the one that knows they have power over the devil. Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”

Sexual sin: Millions of people who genuinely want deliverance can’t find it because society has normalized their behavior. But that does not change the damage. The suicide rate for transgender people is 33 times higher than the general population.

People look at verses like the following and call them hateful but look again: 1 Corinthians 6: 9 “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 homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”

Two takeaways here: 1. Sin is sin. There is no sin elevated above another. Thieves, murders, idolaters, drunkards, are all sexual sin are listed equally. 

 2. It ends with true deliverance from sin. It offers hope of cleansing, sanctification, and justification. That hope is not available if we skirt the issue.

The hope of the misguided modern sermon offers little or no hope. They tout the good life. But if that’s hope, why are billionaires killing themselves? Besides, what are we doing advancing the same lie as the world?

When the lukewarm believer leaves church they are swooning the superficial glow of a happy sense that God is not mad at them. What they don’t have is the blazing reality of being set free and filled with peace that passes understanding and power to answer a sick world’s cry for help.

These happy time sermons must stop now. They are as big a threat to America as the leftist radicals.

Every night, under our tent we kill the lie of these modern sermons. Lost souls hear truth under the power of the Holy Spirit. God confirms the Word with miracles. The unchurched come running for new life. Glory to God!

Remember this…Paul said it was because of how great the hope is that we are bold to tell all the truth. Amen.

 

 

 

What God will now do with Donald Trump

The witch hunt has been destroyed. The lies of CNN, MSNBC, and the cohorts of the now fully discredited left-wing media are cascading down on them.

It all began when they did everything, they could to get Clinton elected. But, when Donald Trump won, they were consumed by hate. They turned to removing Trump from office.

Remember this about Hillary Clinton. She colluded with Russians. She obstructed justice.  The deep state embedded in many aspects of government—notably the intelligence community and the Justice Department—deliberately covered up her crimes. But they did not stop there.

In a breathtaking irony, they decided to pin her crimes on Donald Trump. Now it has all blown up in their face. I said it would. Two years ago, I said this, “Trump will not be impeached.  He will not even be censured. You don’t need to worry about Donald Trump.”

But is this cause for celebration? Quite the opposite. You need to see the shameful and criminal abuse of power by all of these people. This is a very dark day for America if we do not bring to justice all who broke the law including Hillary Clinton.

For two years CNN and MSNBC fed the lie…not merely from hatred of Trump but to save their failing networks. It was all a lie. Not one thing they said about Trump was true.

533,074 articles about Russian collusion were written. Networks gave whopping 2,284 minutes to the investigation. $25 million was spend and all the while they knew there was no evidence of any wrongdoing.

What you have witnessed is the darkest abuse of power America has ever seen. People in great positions of power colluded in a way that makes Watergate look like jaywalking. There needs to be a national outrage not seen since the Boston Tea Party.

The Republican Senate needs to declare war on this desecration of justice, due process and the rule of law. Average Americans need to wake up to the great evil that has been done to them. For 2 years, Democrats have cared zero about jobs, national security, education or our crumbling infrastructure—as they chased a fantasy fueled by hate. But why has all of this come to light?

Heaven is involved in this. When widespread evil is exposed you know God is back of it. This was the answer to prayer for many intercessors.

Not once did I flinch in the face of this attack on Trump. I knew what God would do. And now I am going to tell you what God will now do with Donald Trump.

To understand what God will do with Trump now you must first recognize two miracles that brought us here:

-The first miracle was a grace on Trump and his family. No family and no man could have endured the vile tsunami of lies, insults, and threats unless they were supernaturally sustained.

-The second is that this witch hunt was destroyed. Look at who was against him: 400 newspapers. All the late-night talk show hosts. Every major network but Fox. The Moles in the FBI and CIA, the Democrat party and on and on it goes. How did they not get what they wanted? Why couldn’t the greatest cadre of power in history bring down one man?

Psalm 41:11 explains it: “By this I know that You are well pleased with me, because my enemy does not triumph over me.” The Mueller investigation was the great hope of the left. It is why they spent 2 years pouring every last drop of they currency on it.

America came closer to losing freedom and morality than you can know. We were on the very brink of losing our Constitution and watching the church driven underground. A spell has been broken.

Now Americans will ask if the Russia Collusion thing was a hoax what else is a hoax? Then the drowsy acceptance of foolishness is going away. Antifa protesters will look stupider. Insane pronouncements by wacky politicians will now sound insane. Double standards will die.

In the next few months Donald Trump will behave like a general uncovering more corruption and turning the people of America away from the lies that have poisoned our institutions and campuses. You will see free speech return. It will once again be safe for opposing views to be shared. Furthermore…

Donald Trump has been steadily making it better for me and others to win lost souls. Since he signed the executive order enforcing free speech on campus it opens the door for us to win students like never before.

Now Trump will bulldoze the other lies and abuses of power that surround us. But what does that mean to you? It means that the church must seize this miracle. How will we explain it to God if we sit on the sidelines when doors are flying open?

It is silly to worry about what people will think if we stand with Trump. The spirit on the left will hate you and God with or without Trump. At least with Trump we have a firewall to let us preach the Gospel and hold on for another miracle.

We can’t be passive! We can’t fear supporting the president because things have gotten so heated. We also can’t sit back and abuse the miracle we have received.

The American church must build on the opportunity that Trump is now giving us. We must wake up to our task!  Our disunity is killing our cause. We must shake off the disastrous apathy and complacency that is dulling us to our duty.

There is great hope because we have gotten a miracle. Miracles have power beyond what we understand. God let this blog get in your hands so that you would pray and obey. Don’t worry about others…just do the right thing. God will take care of the rest.

 

THE LESSON

First of all, Mario Murillo Ministries is still a California Corporation and we are dedicated to seeing revival here.  However, to learn how the church lost her witness here demands brutal honesty.

15.8 million Californians claim to be Christian—more by far, than any other state in the union.  When California went abjectly hippie, communist, one has to wonder where were the Christians?   Let’s stipulate that only one third of all believers in California can vote.  According to statistics, that would still be 5.26 million people.

Gavin Newsom won a popular vote margin of  just under 2.9 million.  Why couldn’t the Church—with her vast store of congregants—come up with another 3 million votes to win the election?  If every Christian who could vote, voted for righteousness, they would have won by a landslide. There’s a bigger question:

Why did Christians vote for Gavin Newsom? He is even most hostile to our values than Jerry Brown was.  We know they did, because he could not win without their vote.  The church had the power—at every turn—to stop the liberal agenda in California.  Why didn’t she? 

I know that judges overturned the will of the people with Prop 8.  I get that there are union crime families in California.  I realize that free speech is dying on the left coast.  I also know there is widespread voter fraud.  All of that considered, it still does not explain how such a vast voting bloc could be neutralized.

This is not a hatchet job on believers in the Golden State.  I have sacrificed a great part of my life for the churches there.  I don’t believe the fault lies with rank and file believers.  I also know there are many godly pastors faithfully serving on the West Coast.

No, this disaster crept in like a Trojan Horse.  I saw it firsthand and preached against it from the first day I saw it.  It was a masterstroke of Satan that began over 30 years ago.  When I tell you the culprit, a part of you will be shocked, and another part will recognize why I am right instantly.

The problem was the church growth movement.  More harm than you can possibly imagine came from the seemingly innocuous words “church growth movement.”  And, yes indeed it was a movement.

The initial victim was unity.  The next victim was soul winning.  The final victim was Bible literacy.  Here is how it worked:

When numbers mattered more than anything, California pastors began to see other pastors as the competition.  Hollywood, drugs, atheism, and sexual perversion were no longer the threat—now it was your brother in Christ.  Ministers became suspicious of one another, and began to isolate themselves citing their “big vision.”

Then, these regional pastors inadvertently created a new morality.  Sin was not the sin defined in scripture—sin was now anything that hindered growth.  By removing the offensive parts of the Bible, they also removed the parts that had the power to change people. 

They steered clear of righteousness by saying “confrontational messages offend the very people we are trying to reach.”  This is code for “it is bad for business.”

To maximize growth, churches felt compelled to become self-contained entertainment centers, who didn’t need anyone else.  This destroyed mass evangelism, like what we saw with Billy Graham in neutral stadiums and auditoriums.  The photo below is from the Billy Graham Crusade in the Los Angeles coliseum in 1963.  120,000 are inside and 30,000 more could not get in.  This is unimaginable in Los Angeles today.

Soon California churches became expert at drawing audiences but leaving them unchanged by the Gospel.  Hundreds of thousands could belong to a church and see nothing wrong with abortion or gay marriage. Why?  Because their spiritual leader never talked about it.  Believers assumed that all of this was acceptable under the constant drumbeat of inclusiveness.

When the pastors noticed that the people loved their “nonreligious” appearance and behavior, they began to let down their guard.  The innocent wine and cocktails turned in a drinking habit.  Other dark trends that I will not mention became common among these leaders.  Thus, they were powerless to address the rampant immorality in their congregations.  They were also powerless to form a multi-church statewide voter movement.

Soon, Movie stars, pop stars, and famous athletes became status symbols for these churches.  Instead of the mega pastor discipling these celebrities, the celebrities discipled them.   It became impossible for these preachers to quote scripture, teach doctrine, or oppose liberal agendas.

Finally, taking a stand against left wing politicians became unloving.  Pastors escaped their duty by saying “that is not my calling.”  They took the Bible out of context in telling them that any political statements were judgmental.  Any Christian voter registration effort was downplayed or banned.

Soon Satan had tightened his noose and masses of Christians were oblivious to the warfare around them—most of all, they were ignorant of the ultimate price their children would have to pay for their doctrinal illiteracy.

The things these pastors preached gave no inkling of what believers were about to face.  Their child could be suspended for wearing a Christian t-shirt.  Their job in Silicon Valley could be lost if they testified on the job.  Textbooks that taught alternative sexual lifestyles were forced on their children.  The streets grew violent and the Universities became intolerant.  In short, these churches prepared their crowds for a world that doesn’t exist and did not stop the one that now exists.

California Christians—there is still hope!  The Christian history of California proves that great movements of God can come out of nowhere.  The Jesus movement appeared when a flood of immorality gripped the state.  God can do it again!  As I wrote recently, there is a secret about California that Satan viciously protects: Many in California are searching for God. We see it right now in Marysville where hundreds have been born again and the harvest demands we extend the meetings!

Nevertheless—it is simple truth:  the church growth movement was destructive.   Instead of building on the Rock—which would have given them a large church anyway—they built on sand.  The storm that Jesus warned us of has come.   They sent sheep out of their services unprotected and unable to withstand the storm of left-wing tyranny that  has set the state adrift in a sea of chaos.

Christians across America, take a lesson from California.  If the most popular churches in your state resemble the ones in this blog beware, the same crisis is already in your state.

Urgent prayer request from Mario Murillo

 

One of the great secrets of prayer is to articulate exactly what you seek from the Lord when you ask. Since I am asking our friends from around the word to pray, I want to make sure that you know exactly what I am asking for. This means I need to explain something first.

The question I must answer for you is this one: why we have focused all of our energy and resources into an invasion of California?  I could tell you it’s because I had a radical dream about Highway 99 that runs straight down the center of the state. In the dream I saw the highway transform into a raging river of healing. 5 years later that dream turned into a strategy to touch the major cities along the 99 from north of Sacramento all the way to Los Angeles. But that is only part of the answer.

I could tell you that the door to win souls there has blown wide open. Marysville, California is our first stop. The tent is already going up. Churches have unified. Law enforcement and even the mayor’s office has connected with us for this outreach. This region is being flooded by workers who will bring in the lost and addicted.

The city has opened a wide door for us. Souls have already been saved. The strong hand of God is on this outreach. But that still does not explain our focus on California and what I am asking you to pray about.

The answer lies in what California is about to do to America. The mechanism for America’s destruction is being built in California. The elixir that poisons the soul of our nation is being concocted here.

Silicon Valley was caught red-handed using their technology to push radical anti-Christian and anti-conservative ideology.  They went to congress to face charges of censorship, invasion of privacy, and bias. After a slap on the wrist, they stepped up their attacks. Our posts on social media have been censored!

The power brokers of California are in a frenzy to erase our faith and our freedom.  Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi from Torrance California spoke for the state when he warned the church, “you must evolve.” He is saying our Bible belief must change, or the church will be put out of business. A bill to ban the Bible was tabled but trust me it will be back with a vengeance.

But there is something worse…the politicians, media moguls and technology giants admit their goal is to throw President Trump out of office. Think about that. A state that is the 7th largest economy in the world—with billions at their disposal—wants to nullify a certified American presidential election. But there is a graver question…

What will America look like if the California agenda prevails and spreads to other states? The answer is my hometown—San Francisco.

There are now more heroin addicts in San Francisco than high school students. The filth and human waste scattered throughout the city is worse than parts of Haiti and India. Dirty needles and medical waste make walking hazardous. Walking down Market Street—once a popular thing for tourists—is now an invitation to inhale stench and face harassment from aggressive panhandlers. This is the dream for America of the left?

We have no choice but to take the supernatural Gospel to this rogue state. Many other places have desperate needs—but no other carries the existential threat of this place.

Paul was fixed on going to Rome because he took the great commission literally.  He knew that culture, oppression and the future was being created in Rome and would be exported to the world. Likewise, we have no choice but to go to California.

Jesus said, “on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.” Many have a false picture of this verse. They think this means that in the event that hell came after the church, the church would be protected.  They picture the gates of hell coming after us.  That isn’t at all what Jesus meant. You have never seen a gate chase a man. Jesus is talking about the church going to the gates of hell and prevailing. He is describing a church that actively pursues and defeats the works of Satan.

The churches in the Marysville area are full of expectancy. In fact, the miracles have already begun!  A man ready to jump to his death was rescued by believers just the other day and came to the Five30 Event center and surrendered to Jesus.

Today the team from Inner City Impact will be out on the streets and homeless camps spreading life and inviting many to come and receive miracles.

This is the first of a series of tent outreaches that will follow highway 99 all the way to Los Angeles.

How to pray for Living Proof California:  I would not ask something this brash except that I know what is at stake…and you know what? I think you do too. so I am asking you to pray that way I am praying. When you pray, pray violently, pray exactingly, detailing the damage you want done and where you want it done. By the Spirit, speak directly to evil powers. Call them out and cast them down. Cut their power over California.  Now here are some direct requests.

-We need workers! The doors are wide open, but we have an acute shortage of workers.  Jesus said, in Matthew 9: 37 “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Use the words of Jesus as you pray!

-Ask for special signs and wonders to break the demonic chains in California. Acts 4:29 Acts 4:29 Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” Again, use the exact words of Peter when you pray. Behold the threat that this rogue state poses to our nation.

-Pray for hearts to be convicted. Ask God to repeat this miracle of Acts 2: 37 “Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?”

-Pray for the miracle provision we need in order to bring in this harvest. Confess with me Mark 10: 29 So Jesus answered and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My sake and the gospel’s, 30 who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time—houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions—and in the age to come, eternal life.

A Lying Spirit

Mr. President stand your ground. Child of God hold on just a little longer. God is about to judge a lying spirit that is blanketing America.

The Left has moved from lies to outright lies. The left has moved from backing down when they are caught lying, to not caring if they are caught.

Mario, why are so many being fooled right now? Why is light called dark and dark light? Why is evil and hate called good while truth and love are called evil? Is it possible for a lying demon to blind the masses? Is there a time when minds can be manipulated en masse? Yes!  The Bible calls it a lying spirit.

In fact, that spirit can come by the direction of God in order to judge people for their wickedness. 2 Thessalonians 2:11 says, “And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

That lying spirit is seen in Acts 8: 9 “But there was a certain man called Simon, who previously practiced sorcery in the city and astonished the people of Samaria, claiming that he was someone great, 10 to whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, “This man is the great power of God.”

But God stirred me deeply and said that the lying spirit that possesses the left to lie and persecute their enemies—including the president, will be judged.  What will that judgement look like?

God will allow lies to grow to such an extreme that it will soon nauseate Americans. The glorification of perversion, the bullying of children, the parade of insane ideas will fill the vat and sicken America. God will see to this. Not only this, but He will bring high profile liars to an end. He will do this right on time.  Again, child of God hold on! Mr. President stand your ground!

The condition of America at this moment mirrors 1 Kings 22.  Ahab king of Israel wants to talk Jehoshaphat king of Judah into joining him in battle to win back Ramoth Gilead from Syria. Though willing, Jehoshaphat wants to be sure God is in this venture.

Ahab summons 400 prophets. They all say that victory is assured. Jehoshaphat is bothered by the mass agreement and asks if there is one more prophet. Ahab’s response says it all: “There is still one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may inquire of the Lord; but I hate him, because he does not prophesy good concerning me, but evil.”-1 Kings 22:8

They send a man to go get Micaiah.  What this messenger says to the prophet is like holding up a mirror up to current America: “Then the messenger who had gone to call Micaiah spoke to him, saying, “Now listen, the words of the prophets with one accord encourage the king. Please, let your word be like the word of one of them, and speak encouragement.”-1 Kings 22: 13

Right now there is only one message allowed, only one viewpoint can be spoken. Deviate from that and you will labeled a racist, homophobe and an Islamophobe.  They will make things up to discredit those who oppose.

Now witness the man of God giving the proper response to this indecent request: “And Micaiah said, ‘As the Lord lives, whatever the Lord says to me, that I will speak.’” That must be our conviction right now!

Now we come to one of the greatest moments of courage in history. Micaiah walks into a scene of crushing intimidation.  Two kings wearing royal robes sit on thrones staring down at him. One has murder in his eyes. Around him are 400 false prophets who have all given the exact same “word from the Lord.” A vast crowd overflows the royal hall.  A dead silence falls when Ahab orders the prophet to prophesy.

Think about it. Micaiah tells Ahab he will be killed in the battle for Ramoth Gilead. It goes even deeper. He reveals to Ahab that a lying spirit who has put lies in the mouth of all the prophets. This is the judgement of God—to fool Ahab to go to his death.

This deception is so deep that even telling Ahab about it will not stop him. Micaiah says in verse 23, “Therefore look! The Lord has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these prophets of yours, and the Lord has declared disaster against you.” Ahab is seduced by his audience of prophets.  He goes to war.  A random arrow finds a kink in his armor. He dies right on schedule.

Beloved, don’t think for one moment that this web of lies will decide the nation’s fate. The enemies of God looked invincible in 1 Kings 22. The lies looked unstoppable.  Yet, the mighty God acted.  Believe me the lying spirit on our nation will be judged.

Do you think God isn’t feeling the prayers of millions of His own in America?  Pray and you will get confirmation that what I say is true.  Hold on Mr. President. The polls are lying. The threats are lies. The hand of God is about to destroy the lies!
