YES,IT IS TIME FOR THE EAGLES TO LEAVE THE TURKEY YARD

It is clear that, as the madness spreads and the church just wrings its hands, it is time for the eagles to leave the turkey-yard.  You know who you are, you who are an eagle.  There’s a fire inside you that you can’t put out.  You are ruined for ‘Church-As-Usual-Incorporated.’

For too long you’ve been told to be a good little birdie.  “Don’t ruffle any feathers!” But you just can’t stomach the stale kernels they toss to you.  You must have fresh meat.  All around you, the turkeys peck at the ground.  But all you can see are the clouds and the sky, where you know you belong.

You long to be home, where the glory is.  Your place is alongside the heroes of faith that changed the course of nations.  “Survival-mode” teaching sickens you.  The idea that tepid happiness is the goal enrages you.

You made the mistake of looking at old youtube.com videos.  You saw Oral Roberts.  You saw Kathryn Kuhlman.  You saw Smith Wigglesworth.  You jumped up and screamed, “But, where are the miracles today!?”

(check out my blog, The Price of God’s Miracle Working Power:  https://wp.me/p1vrzp-53e   )

You made the mistake of listening to old preaching tapes, where you heard men and women preaching holy fire!  They didn’t do monologues. They didn’t do stand-up comedy. They pulled the pin out of Bible verses, and flung them like a grenade to explode into the souls of their audience.  You heard people sobbing at the altars.  You heard them linger until something real and lasting transformed them.

Then something really painful happened to you…you looked at your generation. You saw the national cancer of wickedness.  You saw the insane brainwashing.  You saw the limp-wristed tactics of the church.

You became like David as he stared at the paralyzed army of Israel, cowering before a defiant Goliath.

You cried, “WHY DOESN’T SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING?” 

So, now that you realize that the ‘SOMEBODY’ IS YOU, it is too late for you. The die is cast.  You’ve gone too far to turn back.  You now know too much.  You feel like you should leave before you hurt someone…

You remember the verse, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles.” (Isaiah 40:31).

Prayer is your escape from the prison yard of compromise and mediocrity. We’re not talking about the ‘gobble-gobble prayers’ you heard in the yard—we’re talking about falling before God and waiting upon Him until you come forth as pure gold.

What are we talking about?  We are talking about prayer that heaven can’t resist, and hell can’t stand. The kind of prayer that breaks the grip of ancient demonic strongholds.  Prayer that causes students begin to weep on campus, even though they do not know why.  Prayer that fills people with the Holy Spirit. Prayer that removes fear, and installs unshakable courage to tell a generation the genuine Good News: the mighty Gospel—which is the unapologetic, undeniable, unstoppable power of God!

Eagles dare while turkeys stare!

Eagles are born out of prayer. They spring forth from the hand of God, fully convinced of their destiny and their goal.  Let mistaken millennials protest against the AR-15.  You take hold of John 17:15, “My prayer is not that you take them out of the world, but that you protect them from the evil one.”  That is your battle cry!  You don’t want out.  You know the Lord Jesus will keep you from the evil one! You are ready to soar into any nest of evil and destroy the works of the devil.

Where eagles gather, power is present.  Where eagles gather, the deep purposes of Almighty God are revealed.  Where eagles gather, there’s no self-pity, no encounter sessions, and no hiding in your ‘safe-space.’  When turkeys are transformed into eagles, they are equipped, they are ignited, and they are fitted for war.

Eagles must have a challenge.  They yearn for a cause that will summon up all of their strength, talent, and time.  They want something they can easily imagine doing for the rest of their lives.

 

It’s time for you to fly out of the turkey yard, and never look back!

WANTED: MISFITS, REBELS, AND TRUE WARRIORS

Wanted: Misfits, rebels and true warriors. I am looking for those who aren’t waiting for permission to save a nation from destruction.

Today, I write about violence. Today, I write to the violent. There is no point in talking to those who are afraid of their own shadow, or those who can’t wait for a return to the same old harmless lukewarm religion as before, when America reopens. This blog is not for those who practice ‘cuddly-Christianity.’

Matthew 11:12, “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.”

The Left says, “Be a good little Christian, we got this.”  They warn pastors, “Just because the pandemic is winding down, that doesn’t mean we won’t stop telling you when you can meet and what you can preach.  They say, “Get used to less privacy, less rights, and less money.” They used that cursed phrase, “new normal.”

So are you going to bend or stand? If you answer, “Stand,” then read on.

I am on the hunt for misfits! I am looking for those rare hearts who defy the lie. Those who confess with conviction that every dream—every vision—every strategy that God gave us is unchanged by the virus.

What are you doing during this shutdown, warrior? My guess is, instead of downgrading your dream, you downloaded defiance.  You didn’t relax, you reloaded. You aren’t whimpering and whining, but forging and shining.  You aren’t mooing with the cattle, you are yearning for battle.

Remember: Even before all of this happened, you withdrew from the religious rec-hall, so that you could go after God. Never forget how sick and empty you felt during those church performances of flesh, flash, and foolishness.

2 timothy 4:4-5, “And they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”

Then there was that day when you read these words: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father” (John 14:12).

The hunger to see signs and wonders body-slammed you. You wanted the real. You wanted the true miracles of Jesus and not those sad, commercialized parlor tricks that were so popular before the shutdown. In fact, the virus didn’t shake our faith in miracles—it intensified our passion to see more! More power! More fire! More miracles!

Pacing like a lion in my prayer room, I announced to the powers of hell that I won’t back down. I know what the devil is doing. He is fanning hatred toward the Gospel. He is using the virus as a pretext for persecution. So, what does that mean? It means something to the warrior that it can’t mean to the make-believer. It means we won’t back down. We won’t stop. We won’t dilute our message or lower our voice.

2 Corinthians 4:2, “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.”

It also means the soldier of revival is facing a two-headed monster. One head is leftist state officials. Man of God, they want to shut you up. Woman of God, they want to dash your hopes and dreams.

The other head is the Laodicean church of America. The tepid, compromised, confused and cowardly hordes that refuse to buck the system—even if the system is after our freedoms and values. They won’t help. They won’t stand. You are grasping at straws when you try to get them to take a stand.

No, my friend, you must be prepared for a gallant fight. And on your side, are only you, and God. But that is always a majority! 

Are you going to back down now? Are you going to allow God-hating devils to decide the size of your future? Did the devil close doors for you?  God will rip them open again with His own bare hands. This virus and the fearful policies that are growing out of it did not, and cannot, kill the promises of God.

But you have to stand! Even against the gates of Hell! Forget about what others are going to do when this is over. You, prepare for total war.

Are you that pastor who woke up to your compromise and failure during the shutdown?  Are you in agony, trying to figure out how to tell the people that you are now pursuing fire, revival, and miracles? Are you obsessing over how many will leave the church? Stand!

Yes, they will leave. But for every one of these detractors who leave, ten true disciples will rise up. Your obedience will bring in lost souls. Your preaching will be crowned with divine healing miracles.

Do you own a business?  Stand against the tide of fake news about the economy.  God will protect your company. You may be in politics. Forget about votes!  Declare truth no matter who it offends, and then watch as God grants unusual favor.

You and I have no time to waste on the timid cold souls in the bleachers. We have work to do—God’s work! So what if it looks impossible. So what if there seems to be a million of them and just two of us. Today is your victory cry. The moment is yours to command!

The greatest thrill of life and the greatest honor is following God into dark and impossible situations. Don’t let go of this, you may never have another opportunity to prove the might of Jehovah Sabaoth, the Lord of the Armies of Heaven!

1 Samuel 14: 6, “Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few.””

Finally, don’t you dare act like this is too hard for you. Don’t flinch, wondering why this has happened to you. This is what your Christianity is for. This is what your faith is for.

Don’t you dare feel inadequate or shocked! Believe it or not, you have been training for this all of your life. Long before this virus, God separated you for special training. Long before this shutdown, the Lord shaped the circumstances of your life, to give you the heart and the skills for saving a nation.

“Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil; for we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” (Ephesians 6:11-13)

The gates of hell cannot prevail against that which heaven has put in you! Stand!

 

 

 

P.S. A Special message to all of our friends from Mario Murillo Ministries

Why do we offer you books? It is certainly not to blunt the impact of the message you just read. In fact, these books reinforce the message we are trying to spread. More on that in a moment.  So, why do we offer them to you?
When the pandemic closed our tent crusades, church meetings and rallies, the Holy Spirit commanded Mario to keep our staff on at full salary, and trust Him. He obeyed and God has provided. But another thing the Holy Spirit grants are wise ideas. And we needed one. That is when the War Chest Collection was born.
If you look at the page you will see no advertising. And there never will be. And if you get our newsletter you will see that we have stopped raising money for projects we can’t do right now. But even that was not good enough for us.
In this pandemic we needed something that was truly a win-win situation. We prayed for something that would help the people, and us, that was not a garish fund raiser.
Then, we remembered how John Wesley taught his young preachers to always bring books with them that would help the people. Why not then, at a time when people have time to read, offer them something that will empower them and at the same time keep us strong and ready to go as soon as the door reopens?  
We are amazed at the impact of Vessels of Fire and Glory. That book is not just blessing people—it has started a movement! Critical Mass remains required reading in many Christian schools and has never stopped influencing people who pray for revival. Edgewise offers wisdom for living in the last days. Together they provide you with solid, hard-hitting and encouraging truth. Not a bad thing just now.
The War Chest Collection has handed the enemy a double defeat by empowering God’s people and keeping us strong and ready.
Thank you for listening and get your War Chest Collection today. Turn your summer read into equipping, encouragement, and fire! We are all going to come out of this mightier than ever!   -Mario Murillo Ministries

From Sesame Street back to Azusa Street

The cry of my heart is that men and women of God, who are cooped up, will get fed up. My hope is that vessels of God, who are locked down, will get fired up. I am asking God to ruin them for anything other than His work!

I am hoping that God will hit them with a combination punch.  A straight jab that will awaken anger over the spirit of death and despair that is suffocating the greatest nation on earth. Followed by a right hook that will disgust them into admitting they have been living in fear of what people think.

I want you to see Satan yelling, “Yo’ Mamma!” right at you. Pastors, I want you to burn all your books on church growth, and start praying against the sorry guru who suckered you into using their putrefying programs.

Get sick! Not with a virus, but with yourself. Sick for letting boards and deacons scare you. Sick because you continually fretted over who might get offended. Sick because you stare out at the parking lot, counting cars, instead of looking up to heaven. And sick of the sermons that seem as if they were designed for Big Bird and the Cookie Monster.

Yeah, I’ll say it: My cry is that when the doors of Spirit-filled churches reopen, they will leave Sesame Street and run back to Azusa Street.

Nothing in this blog is radical. Nothing in this blog is negative or divisive. The problem with me is that I have been around too long and have seen too much. There is nothing more dangerous than an individual who understands why they are a Pentecostal. There is no one more unstoppable than the person who has been baptized in the Holy Spirit and who has experienced the tongues of fire.

I want you to rage against limp-wristed preaching, fog machines, romantic lighting, and that atmosphere that’s about as life giving as the waiting room at a DMV.

A scourge from hell has attacked our nation! That is why we need heroes! Thank God for the first responders, the courageous nurses, and the doctors. Thank God for our President who has been valiantly battling the swamp creatures.  But it is time for a new group of heroes to appear: Christians who are full of the fire of God!

The testimony of Azusa Street needs to hit us like a Mack Truck.  William Seymour, who oversaw the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at the turn of the century, had none of our advantages, but we have none of his results. The glory and presence of God turned a rundown hall into a magnet for the entire world.  Today, that movement is 650 million strong.

Modern experts have tried to teach us how to trick people into coming to church, but at Azusa Street, they stampeded to the altar, drawn by God alone—without any tricks. Brother Seymour began the most powerful outpouring of the Holy Spirit in modern history in an old rented building that was once a stable. It was so primitive that many times he would pray with his head hidden between two wooden milk crates that served as his pulpit. Then heaven would burst open and the presence of God would fall on those present. It wasn’t a choreographed meeting. It wasn’t a slick presentation. It was raw glory.

Don’t be the fool who says modern society is too sophisticated for Pentecost. “The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ…” (2 Corinthians 10:4,5 AMPLIFIED, 1974 ed.)

I love that translation! Destroying sophisticated arguments! Nothing new has come down the pike that can withstand the conviction of the Holy Spirit. The devil can’t form a weapon that will prosper against a truly Spirit-filled army.

Oh God, let it be! Let frustration build like magma in a volcano! Let the silliness of our human designs task us. Let our old sermon notes torture us. Awaken, O Lord, the greatest sleeping giant in the world—The American Spirit-filled church of Jesus Christ!

From Sesame Street back to Azusa Street

The cry of my heart is that men and women of God, who are cooped up, will get fed up. My hope is that vessels of God, who are locked down, will get fired up. I am asking God to ruin them for anything other than His work!

I am hoping that God will hit them with a combination punch.  A straight jab that will awaken anger over the spirit of death and despair that is suffocating the greatest nation on earth. Followed by a right hook that will disgust them into admitting they have been living in fear of what people think.

I want you to see Satan yelling, “Yo’ Mamma!” right at you. Pastors, I want you to burn all your books on church growth, and start praying against the sorry guru who suckered you into using their putrefying programs.

Get sick! Not with a virus, but with yourself. Sick for letting boards and deacons scare you. Sick because you continually fretted over who might get offended. Sick because you stare out at the parking lot, counting cars, instead of looking up to heaven. And sick of the sermons that seem as if they were designed for Big Bird and the Cookie Monster.

Yeah, I’ll say it: My cry is that when the doors of Spirit-filled churches reopen, they will leave Sesame Street and run back to Azusa Street.

Nothing in this blog is radical. Nothing in this blog is negative or divisive. The problem with me is that I have been around too long and have seen too much. There is nothing more dangerous than an individual who understands why they are a Pentecostal. There is no one more unstoppable than the person who has been baptized in the Holy Spirit and who has experienced the tongues of fire.

I want you to rage against limp-wristed preaching, fog machines, romantic lighting, and that atmosphere that’s about as life giving as the waiting room at a DMV.

A scourge from hell has attacked our nation! That is why we need heroes! Thank God for the first responders, the courageous nurses, and the doctors. Thank God for our President who has been valiantly battling the swamp creatures.  But it is time for a new group of heroes to appear: Christians who are full of the fire of God!

The testimony of Azusa Street needs to hit us like a Mack Truck.  William Seymour, who oversaw the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at the turn of the century, had none of our advantages, but we have none of his results. The glory and presence of God turned a rundown hall into a magnet for the entire world.  Today, that movement is 650 million strong.

Modern experts have tried to teach us how to trick people into coming to church, but at Azusa Street, they stampeded to the altar, drawn by God alone—without any tricks. Brother Seymour began the most powerful outpouring of the Holy Spirit in modern history in an old rented building that was once a stable. It was so primitive that many times he would pray with his head hidden between two wooden milk crates that served as his pulpit. Then heaven would burst open and the presence of God would fall on those present. It wasn’t a choreographed meeting. It wasn’t a slick presentation. It was raw glory.

Don’t be the fool who says modern society is too sophisticated for Pentecost. “The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ…” (2 Corinthians 10:4,5 AMPLIFIED, 1974 ed.)

Let us place a new weapon in your hand. Mario’s new book that saw this coming and gives the instructions for those would let God forge them into a nation-saving weapon.

YOU COULD STAND ME UP AT THE GATES OF HELL

Today, I write about violence. Today, I write to the violent. There is no point in talking to those who are afraid of their own shadow, or those who can’t wait for a return to the same old harmless lukewarm religion as before, when America reopens. This blog is not for those who practice ‘cuddly-Christianity.’

Matthew 11:12, “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.”

The Left says, “Be a good little Christian, we got this.”  They warn pastors, “Just because the pandemic is winding down, that doesn’t mean we won’t stop telling you when you can meet and what you can preach.  They say, “Get used to less privacy, less rights, and less money.” They used that cursed phrase, “new normal.”

So are you going to bend or stand? If you answer, “Stand,” then read on.

I am on the hunt for misfits! I am looking for those rare hearts who defy the lie. Those who confess with conviction that every dream—every vision—every strategy that God gave us is unchanged by the virus.

What are you doing during this shutdown, warrior? My guess is, instead of downgrading your dream, you downloaded defiance.  You didn’t relax, you reloaded. You aren’t whimpering and whining, but forging and shining.  You aren’t mooing with the cattle, you are yearning for battle.

Remember: Even before all of this happened, you withdrew from the religious rec-hall, so that you could go after God. Never forget how sick and empty you felt during those church performances of flesh, flash, and foolishness.

2 timothy 4:4-5, “And they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”

Then there was that day when you read these words: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father” (John 14:12).

The hunger to see signs and wonders body-slammed you. You wanted the real. You wanted the true miracles of Jesus and not those sad, commercialized parlor tricks that were so popular before the shutdown. In fact, the virus didn’t shake our faith in miracles—it intensified our passion to see more! More power! More fire! More miracles!

Pacing like a lion in my prayer room, I announced to the powers of hell that I won’t back down. I know what the devil is doing. He is fanning hatred toward the Gospel. He is using the virus as a pretext for persecution. So, what does that mean? It means something to the warrior that it can’t mean to the make-believer. It means we won’t back down. We won’t stop. We won’t dilute our message or lower our voice.

2 Corinthians 4:2, “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.”

It also means the soldier of revival is facing a two-headed monster. One head is leftist state officials. Man of God, they want to shut you up. Woman of God, they want to dash your hopes and dreams.

The other head is the Laodicean church of America. The tepid, compromised, confused and cowardly hordes that refuse to buck the system—even if the system is after our freedoms and values. They won’t help. They won’t stand. You are grasping at straws when you try to get them to take a stand.

No, my friend, you must be prepared for a gallant fight. And on your side, are only you, and God. But that is always a majority! 

Are you going to back down now? Are you going to allow God-hating devils to decide the size of your future? Did the devil close doors for you?  God will rip them open again with His own bare hands. This virus and the fearful policies that are growing out of it did not, and cannot, kill the promises of God.

But you have to stand! Even against the gates of Hell! Forget about what others are going to do when this is over. You, prepare for total war.

Are you that pastor who woke up to your compromise and failure during the shutdown?  Are you in agony, trying to figure out how to tell the people that you are now pursuing fire, revival, and miracles? Are you obsessing over how many will leave the church? Stand!

Yes, they will leave. But for every one of these detractors who leave, ten true disciples will rise up. Your obedience will bring in lost souls. Your preaching will be crowned with divine healing miracles.

Do you own a business?  Stand against the tide of fake news about the economy.  God will protect your company. You may be in politics. Forget about votes!  Declare truth no matter who it offends, and then watch as God grants unusual favor.

You and I have no time to waste on the timid cold souls in the bleachers. We have work to do—God’s work! So what if it looks impossible. So what if there seems to be a million of them and just two of us. Today is your victory cry. The moment is yours to command!

The greatest thrill of life and the greatest honor is following God into dark and impossible situations. Don’t let go of this, you may never have another opportunity to prove the might of Jehovah Sabaoth, the Lord of the Armies of Heaven!

1 Samuel 14: 6, “Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few.””

Finally, don’t you dare act like this is too hard for you. Don’t flinch, wondering why this has happened to you. This is what your Christianity is for. This is what your faith is for.

Don’t you dare feel inadequate or shocked! Believe it or not, you have been training for this all of your life. Long before this virus, God separated you for special training. Long before this shutdown, the Lord shaped the circumstances of your life, to give you the heart and the skills for saving a nation.

“Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil; for we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” (Ephesians 6:11-13)

The gates of hell cannot prevail against that which heaven has put in you! Stand!

Dinuba is a sign and a warning

It was exactly five years ago today that I stood before a group of leaders in California and made this prediction: “The church in California has five years. Churches here will either become soul winning centers, or they will end up asylums filled with disgruntled believers who will drain the life out of their leaders.”

I went on to tell them that Hollywood, the state government, tech companies and education would become militantly Left Wing and assault the freedom of religion. Five years is up, and that is exactly where we are.

Many say I should just be rejoicing over the dramatic healings that took place last night in Dinuba. I should be dancing in the spirit over all the souls that are being saved. Indeed, the tent is a sacred center for mighty acts of God. And yes, it is true that many amazing things are happening.

This visitation is so very full of hope, love and joy, that as I exited the tent they brought the mayor of Dinuba to me and he grabbed my hand and shook it, and said, “Thank you so much for coming to Dinuba.”

It is Tuesday afternoon October 8th and, while I am rejoicing, I am sober with a soberness that feels like an impending disaster.

We have had to add chairs every night. The worship has been pure and forceful. Souls have been sobbing at the altar as they received Jesus as Lord. Yet over all this glory hangs an ominous cloud of uncertainty.

It has reminded me of when Jesus rode toward Jerusalem. “As He approached the road leading down from the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of His disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen: “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” (Luke 19:37-38)

From every angle you would conclude that Jesus is finally being given the glory and adulation that is due Him. Was this finally His great breakthrough? He knew better. Even as Jesus saw the crowds adoring Him, He knew it was too late. The city had been warned, and a deadline had been crossed: God had passed sentence on Jerusalem.

Luke 19 goes on: 41: “Now when Jesus approached and saw the city, He wept over it, 42 saying, “If you had only known on this day, even you, the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 For the days will come upon you when your enemies will build a siege mound against you and surround you and close in on you from every side. 44 They will demolish you—you and your children within your walls—and they will not leave within you one stone on top of another, because you did not recognize the time of your visitation from God.”

 

Every night under our tent has seen ever increasing blessings and power. Whereas hundreds used to come, now thousands come. We began with a flow of miracles and souls—now it’s a flood. But will it be enough to avert the judgment of God on California? That question is burning a hole in my heart.

Just because our meetings are awesome doesn’t guarantee statewide revival, anymore than Jesus’ ride through the cheering crowds meant Jerusalem would be saved.

What was the crime that sent Jerusalem to its death? My friend, it’s the same crime that will surely bury our hopes and dreams for California. Jesus declared the reason in verse 44: “because you did not recognize the time of your visitation from God.”

The emotional mood swings are enough to cripple me. I go to the heights of faith when I see the people who are standing with us. Their fervor is astonishing. They run all over the city and bring in the lost and the sick.  Inner City Action led by Frank Saldana is an army that causes me to have total faith that revival is coming.

And then there is the attack of discouragement that tries to hit Mechelle and me.  It’s not the insanity of Sacramento that does it. It is not the foolishness of Hollywood actors who don’t know what they are talking about. It isn’t the media.  It’s not even the horrible headlines of homelessness, addiction and violence

My heartache comes from leaders—leaders who labor under the delusion that there is plenty of time.  And, who believe there is no need for repentance or urgency.  These leaders do not recognize the time of God’s visitation.

Forget about me. I am not the catalyst to revival. I am not the chief source of anything for California. But for heaven’s sake, you pastors need to at least preach revival—at least call your people to prayer—at least speak out! For one thing is certain, there is not an infinite amount of time left.

Recently, a large church chose not to support us. The leader claimed that he thought we were not financially accountable—which is an absurd claim when you consider that the Charitable Navigators once gave us a 4 star rating—the same as Billy Graham!  It turns out that it was about money—but not our money—his money! He was “reaching out” to the LGBTQ community. That part is great, but here’s the sad truth: That community tithes to his church and he feared that my stance on marriage would cut off their giving.

Whether I am told to avoid preaching holiness or “politics” (another absurdity), it is grievous because they are not aware of the time of God’s visitation. Again, it is not about me. Go ahead and reject me, but when I see you doing nothing to embrace the moving of the Holy Spirit in any form, it grieves my spirit.

No matter what, I will press on. I will stand in the tent in our little corner of our calling and declare it:

THIS IS THE HOUR OF GOD’S VISITATION ON CALIFORNIA.

JOIN US AT CHUKCHANSI STADIUM IN FRESNO OCTOBER 20TH 6PM

 

 

Still thinks its a game

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

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

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

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

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

When the church:           

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

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

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

Witness the games:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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