Leaving Sesame Street to go 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!

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.

SALVATION AND MIRACLES OVERFLOW BAKERSFIELD

Tonight, God took His revenge on Satan in Bakersfield, California. This city is now the place where lies go to die.

Lies! Would the crowd show up? Every evil spirit said, “No!” More lies. Would the lost respond to the direct preaching of the Word of God? The devil said, “Of course not.”

The evil one rehearsed the catalog of events he had fomented all across America. The list of profound disappointments that characterized 2020. My, how the cackling voice of Satan was celebrating the spread of evil and despair!

Bakersfield was hit even harder than most places in our nation. It was here that the people found out that the lockdowns are worse than the virus. It is here where violence takes the youngest. It is here where multitudes of children appear so downhearted and afraid. It is here that, over the last twelve months, a friend of mine officiated at 52 funerals from drive-by shootings. Crime is soaring in every category. Despair blankets Bakersfield.

There are parts of this city where you feel an ominous heaviness that seems to tell everyone to keep their distance. The sign over them might as well be the same as that over the entrance to Dante’s Inferno, “Abandon hope, all you who enter here.”

Then the heroes began to appear. Wendell Vinson of Canyon Hills AOG invited us and lent his significant influence, as well as the property in downtown Bakersfield, to this vision of reaching the lost.

Manuel Carrizales who leads Stay Focused Ministry gave us a powerful beachhead at this facility. Because he helped, we could do multiple outreaches in the neighborhoods.

Then Frank Saldana, his team from Inner City Action, and 100 volunteers flooded the city with soul winning prayer, tons of food and vast supplies of clothing and other necessities.

But Satan sneered at it all. He reminded me of the hurricane of hatred and confusion he was pouring out on the nation. He threatened that Bakersfield would be no different and that nothing good would come out of all our efforts. “It is futile,” the devil growled.

Then God.

It came like a sudden pouring rain on parched ground. It came like a rushing mighty wind! The early warning was the intense presence of God in the tent. Then an hour before we were to begin, the tent was half full. We thought “this is a great breakthrough, but we can manage it.”

Then we turned around and it became a torrent of humanity pressing to get to the tent. The line of cars was backed up on the Boulevard as far as you could see. We are forced to add every chair and still they came. Scores could not get into the tent.

Nothing could keep them from pressing into the meeting. They sat out in the cold for hours. They yearned to receive all that God had for them.

I preached a direct Gospel message. I solemnly warned them that serving Christ meant giving up all to be His disciple. This did not dissuade them. On the contrary, it ignited an even greater hunger to for them to be saved. The line of those wanting to be saved stretched all the way outside the tent.

They came as a river to confess the Lordship of Jesus over their souls. They were transformed to the uttermost. How many were saved? Only God knows the real number.

Once the amazing harvest was safely in the care of our workers, we then began the miracle ministry. Just like everything else about this night, it was overflow. Signs and Wonders seem to dart from one place to another, until there was rejoicing. The joy of sickness being healed was felt all over the tent.

How can you end a night like this? It was dramatic, historic, and emphatic. The Lord God Almighty came down and took vengeance on evil—the very evil that is grinding our nation down.

We ended with the sense that it will only get stronger—if you can imagine that—and our profound hope is that the fire of God will spread to the rest of California, and then to every State in America! Hallelujah!

THE AMERICAN CHURCH IS STANDING AT THE RED SEA

While millions were watching on their TVs and devices, the host asked me, “What moment are we at in this country?” I answered, “The American church is at the Red Sea.”

Much of the American church believes this is a time of fear, despair, and profound disappointment. It is a time of dreadful uncertainty. It seems that the promises given to us by preachers have popped like so many balloons. Many regret standing with Trump. Others are abandoning their convictions in order to please a fallen culture. Still others are stunned and confused by the bizarre events unfolding every day.

Divisions spread like earthquake faults. Many are pointing fingers. It would seem that we need someone to arise and bring us a soothing balm. Someone to console us. But the fact is, we need a swift kick.

The Israelites were backed up against an impenetrable sea. A vast army, blind with revenge, was bearing down on them.  Were they right to fear and be dismayed? Were they right to rail against Moses and remind him that they never wanted this adventure? “Is this not the word that we told you in Egypt, saying, ‘Let us alone that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than that we should die in the wilderness” (Exodus 14:12).

Isn’t this what we are hearing right now? Some are saying, “It’s better for us to serve Biden than to hold on to this embarrassing hope.”

Moses tried to rally the people: “And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace”” (Exodus 14:13-14).

But God found fault with Moses’ behavior. It was not a time to console, but to command: “And the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward”” (vs. 15).

Why is God taking a harsh tone with Moses? It is because their fear made no sense. It is because their statement that slavery was better, is blasphemy.

These people had witnessed 9 astounding miracles in Egypt. The simple progression of God’s acts should have been more than enough proof that another miracle was inevitable.

Do you mean to tell me you have forgotten the progression of miracles that have brought us to this point? Cyrus came to the White House. The collusion attack failed. The Obama-led FBI failed to run Trump out of office. The economy boomed despite the attempts of every Democrat, every media, and Big Tech undermining him. Victory upon victory led us to a golden age for the middle class and the church. And what? God has abandoned us now? Why would that be?

Now we are at the Red Sea. And, just as the Israelites should have expected a miracle, so should we.

The uncovering of the vast corruption, evil and manipulation perpetrated by Biden and the Democrat-controlled States, would never have happened unless God was behind it. The Lord revealed a threat to our freedom that was lodged in our foundation like a time bomb.

Wake up, Church! This is a test. The images of dread and fear are a test. The feeling that immorality will swallow our nation whole is a test. The draining depression brought on by the election is a test.

Think back to the time when King Jehoshaphat turned a hopeless situation into proof that a miracle was coming. Read carefully what he said: “And now, here are the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir—whom You would not let Israel invade when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them and did not destroy them; here they are, rewarding us by coming to throw us out of Your possession which You have given us to inherit. O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You” (2 Chronicles 20: 10-12). 

Let’s look at the lessons in these words for us right now. Jehoshaphat reminded God: A great army is coming to take away something You gave us. Then the king reminded the enemy: How is that going to work? Do you really want to mess with land that God gave to us Jews?

In the same way, America is a miracle. We did not come about by our own wits or our own greatness. Do you believe that voting machines from Venezuela or China are going to dislodge the home of the brave and the land of the free without God stepping in?

Next, the king said to Jehovah, “Will You not judge them?” Great evil will not go unpunished. Of course not!

Finally, Jehoshaphat said to God, “We have no wisdom for this and we have no might against them, but we are looking to You.” Similarly, this is also a test! God wants the glory. God will bring this wickedness down by His own hand.

We found out that too many American Christians are flat out wimps. Wimpy worship, wimpy convictions, wimpy prayers, and wimpy loyalty to God. But the remnant found out something different.

Their hope is in God and nothing else. They are ready to obey their marching orders. Preachers should not be cowards and traitors. They need to tell the people to move forward. We should be outraged that our election was stolen and our votes were nullified. Don’t you get it? We are not Venezuela—we are America!

We should be moving forward. We should not be debating how much we can do—we should be doing all we can. Get rid of that lie that we should appear polite and compliant in the face of this vile coup. We need to file every lawsuit necessary to expose every villain involved in this crime—even if they are Republicans.

It is not wrong to reject Biden. It is not wrong to exhaust every legal option. It is not wrong to make all the noise we need to make in order to take down this monster. God wants to open the Red Sea before us. He just wants us to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and move forward into our miracle!

This is a message to those who support Mario Murillo’s message to America.

I AM LOOKING FOR 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

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!

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.

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.””

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