IS TRUMP TOO RUDE?

The president wrote, “If I ever meet you on the street, you’re going to need a new nose job and a supporter below.”  At a Jewish Seminary in New York, he blurted out “I am King Cyrus!”  The thing is that wasn’t Trump…
It was President Harry Truman.  Okay, here’s a president who puts his intention to commit felony assault in writing—imagine that tweet! 
He essentially calls himself the reincarnation of King Cyrus—delusional?
Oh, and did you know he tried to get power to draft an entire labor union into the Army to punish them for striking?  Trump is tame by comparison.
Imagine what CNN would do to Harry Truman today, if Harry was a republican. 
Mark Twain said, “facts are a stubborn thing.”  It’s a fact Richard Nixon and Lyndon Johnson nursed greater hatred for the media in their day than Trump does today.

 

This historical perspective shows us Trump is not the madman, the media needs him to be.   
Notice I said need.  They need to destroy him.  It is a bottomless need.  It is a need so intense it consumed all rational journalism.  Facts are irrelevant. Any good Trump does must be ignored or twisted into evil.  They have sold their souls.  Alec Baldwin said, “there is no way to be too nasty to Trump.”
The need has reduced them to pathetic, blithering automatons who must tell the most trivial lies about him: killing goldfish, and how many scoops of ice cream he takes.
Instead of learning from the spanking they got during the election—they increased the dosage of venom.  It’s no longer about ratings—as CNN so eloquently proves—it is only about destroying Trump, even if it means self destruction.
A football player gets punched but the ref doesn’t see it, but he does see the victim punch back and flags him?  Times a million, welcome to Trump’s world.  
Not only is Trump not crazy.  Not only are his outbursts understandable.  He has behaved with greater restraint than his predecessors who could never imagine this tyranny of fake news. -Mario Murillo

1. Truman letter to Paul Hume:

“Mr. Hume:

“I’ve just read your lousy review of Margaret’s concert. I’ve come to the conclusion that you are an ‘eight ulcer man on four ulcer pay.’

“It seems to me that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for it shows conclusively that you’re off the beam and at least four of your ulcers are at work.

“Someday I hope to meet you. When that happens, you’ll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!

“[Newspaper columnist Westbrook] Pegler, a gutter snipe, is a gentleman alongside you. I hope you’ll accept that statement as a worse insult than a reflection on your ancestry.”

The Trump miracle is not for wimps

 

Satan has stoked the fires. One big reason is to get the church to abandon Trump. However, in doing that, we also abandon our miracle. Trump is only the start of a miracle. Trump is a foot in the door—a stay of execution.  He is an act of God to buy the church time to repent and return to her rightful role in American life.
Trump is not a pastor or a moral reformer. His role is specialized and only for a season. If we don’t seize the time and the door God has opened, disaster will strike.
Consider how Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer will handle the next 2 years: Endless investigations—ignoring the economy and American families—a frenzy to normalize immorality, and giving billions to people who are not Americans.
Trump annoys you? You want a saint in the Oval Office? Grow up! His foibles are nothing in comparison to the overt godlessness spewing from the left. Instead of wimping out on Trump, blame the real villains.
Those of you who worship Trump need a wake-up call too. He is not supposed to usher in revival. We are. He is not the one to pray without ceasing. We are.  He is not the moral leader of America…that is the church!
You claim Trump is a miracle like King Cyrus. But Cyrus didn’t help Israel build for very long. It was up to the people of God to seize the miracle. If not for the astonishing endurance of a handful of priests, prophets, and one notable cup bearer, Israel would have remained in ruins.  (Read Ezra, Nehemiah and Haggai).
It took nearly 80 years after the king’s decree before the Temple and the wall were finished. Let me let you in on a secret: we don’t have 80 years.  If we do not learn from history—America will never be restored.  If we blow this…expect disaster.

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 gave 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.

Why is America miserable?

It’s easy to see what is making America miserable: The Left has a firm grip on a lie while the church has a loose grip on the truth.

The left told America to turn her back on God. How’s that working? Every metric of quality of life in our nation shows the same trend: acute loneliness, emptiness and despair.

Liberals told America there are many ways to truth.  But, instead of enlightenment, it brought deeper darkness, deeper questions, and a growing inability to know truth.

Few Americans can make it through a day without alcohol, a toke, a pill, powder or a needle. Our children are taking their own lives over shoes, pictures on Instagram, and bullies at school.

Is this what happens when you tell God to leave? Did God leave the Democrat party after they booed Him at their convention?

The Left doesn’t want to own up to the misery of the inner cities they have controlled for 50 years. The left chants, “keep taking government money it will give you a future. Keep believing you are a victim, and you’ll stop being a victim.”

The left must keep a tight grip on a the lie of calling America racist.  Even if Obama’s election proved it is a lie.

The Left says they must silence opposing views. Weaponize heckling. Make it a veto on free speech. They’ve created young minds full of self-pity and fear.

The left says America is evil for not opening their borders. Wait what?! America is the most welcoming nation on earth. The overwhelming majority of the people on earth believe in strong borders. Most nations have much stricter border policies. But the lie must live on because democrats need new voters.

We are a nation at each other’s throats.  The left loves it that way.  Mobs not jobs is a totally justified accusation against the left.

They have a firm grip on a lie, but the church has a loose grip on the truth.

Did God also leave those entertainment worship centers that filtered out the Holy Spirit in favor of marketing?  The Left has no answer but shouts as if they did. The church has the answer and is silent as if they didn’t.  Leftist’s go on talk shows and spout madness with conviction. Christian celebrities go on the same show and can’t (or won’t) define sin.

Superstar Christian speakers said there are many ways to win a generation to God. We no longer need repentance, Bible preaching, or reliance on the Holy Spirit.  No matter what they boast the fact remains, they didn’t win lost souls so much as they moved gullible Christians away from Godly pastors into the shallows. Instead of making disciples they provide quarter for those who want a faith without works.

The Holy Spirit is not welcome in this place. They fear holiness the way snowflakes fear Ben Shapiro. They dread the power gifts of the Holy Spirit. They omit the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.  The nation pays the price for their lukewarm faith.

America became miserable in part because some preachers told us not to judge. We ended up not being able to discern! Millions of so-called Christians vote for abortion and same sex marriage. We were powerless in America’s hour of need—too disoriented and morally ambivalent to push back on immoral laws. The Great Commission was plowed under the priority of church growth.

Both the left and lukewarm have this in common: they gave America false promises.

Stuck in the middle between the radical left and the lukewarm church are tens of millions of Americans who just want truth. They are paying taxes, raising kids, obeying laws, and they still love America. They are vulnerable to the raw power of the Gospel.

Also stuck between the radical left and the lukewarm church is the remnant of God. These are pastors, and regular Christians who are praying to go deeper. They are busy saying to each other, “the sideshow is not God, there’s more! No way can Satan win if we take our stand on the authority of the Cross!”  They are ready to deliver that raw power of the Gospel.

Woe onto you God haters and lukewarmers. Two radically wonderful groups are about to meet each other in the midst of this misery. God will see to it that the Americans who want deliverance and a life worth living will collide with the holy core of God who only want to obey the Holy Spirit.

A company of God’s people with a firm grip on the truth will loose many from the power of Satan.

Daniel 11:32  “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”

 

PREPARING

Not only is this the worst moral condition I have seen, it is the worst in American history.   The facts about American youth: never has church attendance been this low—never have so many claimed to be atheists—never have they been this angry with churches—never have we seen such derision and hostility toward the teachings of Christ.  Therefore, this is the perfect time for a youth awakening.  How can this be?

Reason number one: The hurricane effect.  Scientists predict hurricanes by measuring a very unhurricane looking condition—they detect low air pressure over the ocean.  In other words, they know violent air is coming because the air is so nonviolent.   Nature always rushes to fill a vacuum.

Universities are sowing the seeds of revival by spiritually starving students.  They are not creating lifelong atheists…they are creating a vacuum.  The push to invalidate the Gospel will not remove the need of the human soul.  In fact, suppression of spiritual desires can make those desires overwhelming.

Reason number two: The Saul of Tarsus effect.  How can we be near to an awakening when so many of our youth are going to extremes with drugs, violence, and perversion?

Jesus spoke to Saul of Tarsus, “It is hard for you to kick against the goad.”  Saul got the message instantly.  He knew oxen kick against the sharp stick (goad) used to move them forward.  The goad was Saul’s destiny to become the Apostle Paul.  Saul was under deep conviction.  He knew his time as Saul was ending.  That turmoil drove his radical behavior.

Your child may be far from God and acting out great sin and anger, but it could be a sign—they’re on their own road to Damascus.  They are reeling with the feeling of a coming act of God.

Reason number three: Satan always overplays his hand.  If Lucifer truly wanted to fill hell, you’d think he’d make everyone rich and content.  Instead, he grinds people.  He makes them miserable and plunges them into despair.  He drives his victims to cry out to God for deliverance.  Satan’s hatred for mankind derails his tactics.

Reason number four: It’s God’s time.  Revivals do not begin in times of enlightened morality and peace.  They come when humanity writhes in the depths of depravity.  They come to those most cruelly vexed by the culture.  The brunt of cultural change always falls on the backs of youth.  Psalm 119:126 says, “It is time for you to act oh God for they have regarded your word as void.

I have given you four reasons a youth revival is coming, but now comes the crucial point of my letter to you: WE MUST BE PREPARED!  Carrying this inside information is not a blessing—it is an ominous responsibility.

We dare not speak in terms of business as usual.  Let me ask you, what should a ministry do if they know that in the coming days perhaps millions of youth will suddenly give in to a divine urge to serve Christ?  What would we do with such a miracle?  We should prepare.

One of Jesus’ greatest rebukes goes to the heart of this issue.  John 4:35 says, “Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!”

The correction begins with “do you not say.”   He is telling them they are wrong about what they say about the harvest.  “It’s 4 months away.”  Here’s our version:  An American youth revival is either impossible or off in some unknown future.

Next, He ordered them to lift up their eyes.  Look past the outward evil.  Look beyond the anti-God stage props of the culture.  The regular seasons of sowing and reaping have been overruled.  Amos 9:13 says, “‘Behold, the days are coming,’ says the Lord, ‘When the plowman shall overtake the reaper, And the treader of grapes him who sows seed; The mountains shall drip with sweet wine, And, all the hills shall flow with it.’”

The Modern English Translation says, “You will have such a harvest that you won’t be able to bring in all of your wheat before plowing time. You will have grapes left over from season to season; your fruitful vineyards will cover the mountains.”

Here’s my concluding message to you: DON’T SAY IT!  Don’t say we still need more time.  Don’t say some things have to change first.  Don’t say it can’t happen. Don’t say we can’t afford it!

I refuse to be caught unprepared for the harvest!  People close to me wonder about me.  Why do I drain our funds every month to buy equipment, train the army, invest in internet technology and furiously expand our reach?  Some are offended that I am continually challenging our partners.  I don’t care…I know a massive in-gathering is upon us—I refuse to be unprepared!

Jesus commanded them to look to the fields.  Church-bound Christians can’t see the fields.  Preachers consumed with survival programs can’t see the field.

Mario Murillo Ministries has not only seen the field—now, we live there. You know what we found on the field?  We found more souls who want Jesus than we have the resources to harvest.  We see the Holy Spirit pouring abundant and startling healings and conviction on young people.  In short, we are seeing the unreachable reached.

But I would rather risk suffering personal loss because I reached out than to endure the shame of sleeping through the harvest.   Proverbs 10:5 says, “He who gathers in summer is a wise son; He who sleeps in harvest is a son who causes shame.”

IT’S ALL ABOUT SOULS.  It’s about starting a youth revolution that will reverse the curse on America.  I don’t need to tell you how vicious the God-haters are right now.  I don’t need to remind you how extreme the left has gotten and how insane their ideas have become.  They are pushing America off a cliff.

Jesus was never vague about the crisis of winning souls.  Matthew 9:36 says, “But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.’”

It all points to one final question…how can we pray for workers to be sent without giving to send them?

I never ask you for a gift of love to win the lost through this blog.  I strive to keep my post very focused on exposing the wicked schemes of the left to erase the Judeo-Christian heritage that makes America great.
Every other part of Mario Murillo Ministries is focused on preaching the undiluted Gospel of Jesus Christ to youth who suffer in our inner cities.  Our tent is a mighty weapon!
I am breaking my usual habit and I am asking you to click on the link below to give to help me win souls.  Just as the doors are flying open, we hit a critical shortage.  There are at least 12 cities that we put on hold who are anxiously waiting for us right now.  I am grateful for anything you give but please be bold knowing the ground you are sowing in and the reward that will be returned to you.
Again, I am breaking my usual habit of not asking.  I am asking you to click on the link below to give to help me cease this amazing harvest.

YOU DON’T NEGOTIATE WITH CRAZY

Alexandra says we need to spend 40 trillion dollars.  Nancy says, If we win 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’s.  Diane says no man should be believed.  Maxine says God wants us to harass people in restaurants.
Now Carl Bernstein says unless we develop a civil tone and talk to each other we’ll have civil war. He says we need to find common ground.  Not when its quicksand!
Say a man breaks into your home.  You got him dead to rights. Instead of leaving he begins to threaten 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.  Not your normal cop arrives.  For some reason the wispy officer finds merit in the burglar’s claim and suggests you find common ground.  “Maybe you can let him use part of your house as a humanitarian gesture.”
We 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.

Much of the world condemns Israel for not giving into Palestinian demands.  Yet they forget that the fundamental demand of any of Palestinian offer of peace is that Israel cease to exist.  That is why the Israelis refuse to negotiate.  That’s also why we shouldn’t negotiate with the left.
University presidents say no conservative should be allowed to speak on any campus.  The left is so gone that they have gone from witch hunts to witchcraft.  A group of leftist witches are formally putting hexes on Judge Kavanaugh.  Appropriately, they 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 to civil war.  Like true confederates and plantation owners Blue states want to secede from the Union.  Don’t be fooled.  This is not like 1860 it is more like 1776.  We are not engaged in heated disagreement with folks that have a legitimate beef.  These are loons. And oh yes…thugs.
Who is in the street wearing black masks?  Why did George Soros pay operatives to physically attack Republican women? Splinter News writer Hamilton Nolan penned an essay this week, warning that they are going to start using bombs.
Carl you need to talk to your lunatic friends.  This is no time to tell the rational people they need to give into insanity.
November is not an election based on policy or reasoned debate.  It is a referendum on madness.  It is the American people seeing through the media shills, the false victims, and the bloodthirsty politicians…and voting to stay free.  You don’t negotiate with crazy.

You don’t hand matches to an arsonist

The victory of Brett Kavanaugh faded quickly in my spirit.  It was something President Trump asked the crowd in Kansas.  “If they act this way trying to get power what do you think they will be like if they get the power?”

Then he said, “you don’t hand matches to an arsonist.”

Diane Feinstein will slander an innocent man—hold back that slander till it has the most sadistic impact on a godly family—just to win an election.  If she does that now, what would she do with a Senate majority?

The left believes men should be guilty until proven guilty.  They want carte blanche to investigate until the lies suffocate the truth. 

And what if Kavanaugh had quit?  What if that towering miscarriage of justice had carried the day? The war on men would have reached critical mass.

As it stands, all we have won is a battle.  The war goes on.  We will still see this ideology canonized in the courts if the left gains control.

Oh, they won’t go after every man…just your man.  They won’t investigate Bill Clinton for rape or Keith Ellison for beating a woman senseless.  They only want to stop men who oppose their agenda.  What do you think they’d do to your Christian, conservative son, brother, husband, father, if they get in the way?

What about the street thugs of the left?  With a Democratic majority they will be emboldened to expand and deepen their disruption and violence.  The streets can become their reign of terror, destroying property and reputations.  They will operate with impunity shielded by a Congress sympathetic to their cause.

Whatever restraint Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and all the social media platforms are showing now will go away.  Instead of shadow banning there will just be banning.

Hollywood, and all the media voices of the left would churn out complete propaganda, drowning out all opposing views.  Look at this tweet:

The writer of this vile tweet is a writer on the Stephen Colbert show, and has nearly 40,000 followers on Twitter. As the Senate confirmation vote was gearing up, she wanted everyone to know that “whatever happens” she is “just” glad she ruined a man’s life. Never mind if he was innocent, never mind any of the facts or corroborations or shifting stories of his accuser. The important thing to her was ruining his life. That was what mattered.

We have entered a moment unlike any in history.  They only time it reminds me of is in Luke 4: 13 “When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time.”

The left is a bloodied beast regrouping.  Their vile behavior against Kavanaugh was just a dress rehearsal. Starting today, they will unleash deceit, intimidation and yes, violence.  Dark money will fuel their dirty commercials.  A tsunami of leftist sewage is about to crash into the nation.

Mario, I don’t believe you, this can’t happen.  Yeah and did you ever think something like these depraved confirmation hearings could happen?

The stakes for November are beyond calculation.  I have never seen, nor will I ever see a closer tie between my faith and my vote.  They have become virtually inseparable.  One is now an extension of the other.  Every believer must storm heaven in prayer!  Every believer must go and vote.  If your pastor is not rallying you to pray and vote why are you still listening to them?

You don’t hand matches to an arsonist.  However, if you think you are spiritual by not voting you need to realize this:  while you aren’t handing an arsonist matches, you are leaving them out on the table.

IT’S REALLY QUITE DISGUSTING

There is a new book out about Vice President Mike Pence that should disgust and outrage every Christian in America.  The target right now is Vice President Mike Pence but if the premise of this book gains traction, I believe it will target all of us.

“The Shadow President: The Truth About Mike Pence,” authors Michael D’Antonio and Peter Eisner argue that Pence is “the most successful Christian supremacist in American history” and that a Pence presidency could mean the United States becoming a theocracy.

Here’s the thing—I want you outraged and disgusted, but the last thing I want is this book banned. That is the essential difference between the radical left and the rest of us.  We don’t want them banned.

I’ll get back to Mike Pence in a moment but I want to expand my reasoning about why we don’t want the left to lose free speech.

Their nonsensical rhetoric melts in the sunlight of honest discourse.  Our Gospel does not. That is why they want us banned.  In the light of day, and in a fair debate, radical leftism folds like a house of cards. They have to use censorship, algorithms, masks and clubs and scream as loud as they can to drown out reason.

The best way to stop socialism is to let Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez keep talking.  For her part, Alexandria knows this.  That’s why she offered the lamest excuse in history for turning down a debate with Ben Shapiro.

Censorship is vital to their ruse.  No doubt this blog will be banned by the major social platforms who will allow the left to be as hateful as they want.  Remember, that to them, it’s not hate speech because of hate—it is hate speech because it was said by Conservatives and Christians.

So what is wrong with The Shadow President: The Truth About Mike Pence?  This book confirms the radical left’s systemic hatred of Christianity.  The best way to show you how vile this book really is, is by sharing the New York Times review of the book:

New York Times columnist Frank Bruni concluded “There are problems with impeaching Donald Trump. A big one is the holy terror waiting in the wings,” Bruni wrote. “That would be Mike Pence, who mirrors the boss more than you realize. He’s also self-infatuated. Also a bigot. Also a liar. Also cruel.”

The left rightly fears Pence.  He would be a great president but never a tyrant.  Click here to read more about Mike Pence and why the left fears him.  https://wp.me/p1vrzp-56C

No facts are presented to substantiate these claims.  It’s the left’s way just to throw slime and demand we accept it merely because they said it.  They are counting on getting the pass the radical left always gets when it lies.

How rich is it when 400 newspapers, Google, Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Instagram, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, Hollywood and Antifa, consider themselves the resistance?

This vacuous book says a President Mike Pence would bring a theocracy to America.  Ben Shapiro said, “The only theocrats, the only people who actually want to rule from above by instituting their moral preferences on society from the top down are the folks on the left. It’s really quite disgusting.”

All authors Michael D’Antonio and Peter Eisner are doing in this book is projecting their own theocratic tendencies toward government onto Pence.

The American church is having her Detrick Bonhoeffer moment.  The great German Pastor/Prophet/Martyr who faced down Hitler and tried to awaken the German Church has a message that echoes from eternity: “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”
