Gullible Christians are helping to kill America

 

 

Gullible Christians are helping to kill America

By Mario Murillo

Satan’s masterstroke of deceiving, dividing and diluting Christians in America is now paying off.  He has fooled gullible Christians into helping kill America.

Millions of believers are blind to the disaster a Clinton presidency would be to their jobs, their church and their children.

They have been pickled by preaching that tells them Daddy with take care of everything; America will be okay no matter who you vote for.

Max Lucado tells us God is on the throne and that means that on November 9th, we will be fine.  History, the Bible, and the facts about Hillary Clinton refute this.

God was on the throne when Hitler rose to power.  God was on the throne when Stalin exterminated untold millions.

God is on the throne as Christians all over the world are being martyred by radical Islam.

God is looking for heroes to rise up, by His power, and intervene to save America. He uses people.

If Hillary wins on November 8th, we will not be fine. The Bible says in Proverbs 29:2, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked person rules, the people groan.”  Prepare for years and years of groaning if she wins.

James Riley said: “Texas pastor Max Lucado leads what he calls a ‘red state’ church, but Max has a maxim: ‘I don’t want anybody to know how I vote.’ Max does this to make sure the Democratic voters in his church, the ones who support abortion on demand, Islamo-pandering, and class warfare are not made to feel uncomfortable. However, Max recently broke his neutrality pledge…  According to Max:

‘I would not have said anything about Mr. Trump, never — I would never have said anything if he didn’t call himself a Christian. It’d be none of my business whatsoever to make any comments about his language, his vulgarities, his slander of people, but I was deeply troubled … that here’s a man who holds up a Bible one day, and calls a lady “bimbo” the next.’”

Think on that for a moment. Max closes his eyes to another “Christian,” Barack Obama, who stands foursquare for the slaughter of millions of unborn babies, at your expense, but Donald Trump called a lady a “bimbo?”

Evangelist Beth Moore has also decided to help Hillary.  “Beth Moore is standing in the gap for Hillary.  Beth Moore is breaking away from fellow evangelical leaders/speakers who stand with Donald Trump, saying she can no longer do so after hearing the 2005 recording of his off-the-record conversation with Billy Bush.  Moore suggested that Trump’s words from 11 years ago highlight how men are “objectifying” women today, and she made clear that she will not support Trump over it. She issued a number of tweets on the topic, not one of which criticized Hillary Clinton for the way she has treated the women who allege Bill Clinton sexually assaulted them — women like Paula Jones and Juanita Broaddrick.” -Awr Hawkins, Britebart News.

The fact is, neither Max nor Beth have said anything about Bill and Hillary Clinton.  So, where is their Christianity when it comes to protecting America from tyranny?

Beth, what is your opinion of Hillary enabling a rapist?  What do you think about her laughing at a 12-year-old girl that was raped?  Why aren’t you talking about that?  If Hillary wins, Bill Clinton will be immoral in the White House. General Colin Powell said, in an email, that Bill Clinton is still committing adultery. What kind of a role model is that for men?

Max, Hillary said she will force religion to change its beliefs.  What are you doing to protect the sheep from that?

Eric Metaxas said, “If Hillary Clinton is elected, the country’s chance to have a Supreme Court that values the Constitution—and the genuine liberty and self-government for which millions have died—is gone. Not for four years, or eight, but forever.”

Instead of raising up an informed electorate who could vote as a moral bloc, the modern pulpit has created gullible Christians—Christians who are about to help Hillary push the nation over a cliff.

Is the motive really about women and love of people? Or is it, once again, political correctness?  Are popular leaders wanting to look good to outsiders, hedging their bet that Hillary is going to win and they will escape the wrath of the new order?  Are they living in denial about the evil that will befall America once she is in the White House?

One of the most amazing and revealing statements Trump ever made—he made to pastors.  He asked them why they let the country get in this condition when—all along—they had the power to get what they wanted.

He told them, “There are 50 million of you, and if you had worked together you could have elected everything from city councilmen, to state Assemblymen, to Congressmen and presidents.”  He is painfully correct.  That is not just a statement of our influence but of our responsibility.

To the basket of Christian gullibles I say this: NOTHING MATTERS MORE IN THIS ELECTION THAN WHAT HILLARY WILL DO TO AMERICA.  SHE WILL FILL THE SUPREME COURT WITH LEFTIST JUDGES—SHE WILL DESTROY OUR ECONOMY—SHE WILL CAUSE A WAR—ALL FORMS OF ABORTION WILL BE LEGAL—AND THE CHURCH IN AMERICA WILL BE SEVERELY CRIPPLED.

We could stop this insanity if we unified against real—not imagined evil.  If we could see our real duty in this election, if we could get over our false sensibilities and hurt feelings, we could save the country.  The great heroes of our faith who witnessed tyranny would grab us and shake to our core if they saw our apathy and naivete in the face of this threat.

 

Houston…Just give me three hours

Houston, just give me 3 hours and you will be revolutionized.  Why not you?  Become the weapon our nation needs now.

By Mario Murillo

Millions of Christians are done with watered-down Christianity.   To them, it has been a terrible waste of time and money.  They say that modifying the Gospel “not to offend” totally backfired.   By omitting the “offensive” parts they also removed its power to transform society and contributed to the present downfall of our nation.

They are intensely frustrated.   They see large churches filled with people who are systematically weakened—too weak to ever impact American culture.  They say we are losing the battle for America’s soul for stupid reasons.  They remember the legacy of true Christianity.  They know its power to change nations.

We have the best message humanity has ever heard—and the best book ever written.   We have the all-powerful Holy Spirit sent to aid us.   We have access to power, strategy and wisdom.  All of this and more was supposed to direct our operations.

They ask disturbing questions.  Why have we cast it aside?  Why have we accepted a cheap substitute?  Why would we rather let America die than admit our desperate need?

Warriors workshop tease

But they also see their own need.  A fast growing number of Jesus followers want training and power.  They want the skills of their spiritual ancestors.  They want the Jesus within them to overtake the culture around them.  They want to convert lost souls to Christ.  They want to see true signs and wonders.  They want to see victory in their everyday life.

God forged a new weapon at Mario Murillo Ministries—a weapon that answers the monumental, unspoken frustration in the heart of millions of believers.  It will yank believers out of the Christian Witness Protection Program and turn them into lions.

We call it the Warrior’s Workshop.  A workshop that makes a bold claim:  With just 3 skills we’ll revolutionize America.  You will get these skills at my Warrior’s workshop…a workshop that took me 40 years to build.

The best way I can describe it is this:  The object of military training is not to prepare men for war but to make them long for it.   The same is true of this workshop—it makes you yearn to reach out—heal the sick—and walk in total victory.

Give me just 3 hours and you will be revolutionized.   Why not you? You can become the effective weapon our nation needs now.  See you there!

COMPANIES AT WAR WITH THE CHURCH

TYRANNY BLOG copy

March 30th, 2016   By Mario Murillo

 

General Zod ordered them to activate the world engine.  Suddenly, downbursts of inconceivable power began squashing and pulverizing an entire city and its innocent citizens.   A wise scientist discerned what was happening—aliens are terraforming the earth.  Terraforming is a science fiction device that dates back to at least 1941.  Machines transform atmospheres so they can be colonized—essentially, absorbing an existing world in favor of a new matrix.

By now, many recognize this as a scene from the movie Man of Steel.  Last night wasn’t my first time to see the film.  Seeing it on television is not the same as a theater on a gigantic screen with deafening sound and a responsive audience.   It should have been an amusingly tepid affair—but for some reason—the terraforming scene disturbed me.  Now I know why.  It is because it is happening right now.

terraforming

Walt Disney Studios, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Coca Cola, IBM, the NBA (to name a few) are and terraforming North Carolina and Georgia.  They are absorbing Christianity.  These corporations are pounding, pulverizing and eradicating an existing culture in favor of a new culture.

Their world engine says, “You will allow boys into the girl’s showers and bathrooms—you will not call homosexuality a sin from the pulpit—you are not allowed to operate a Christian adoption agency unless you place children in gay and lesbian homes—you will do this or we will blast your economy back to the stone age.”

If you believe their motivation is to advance equality and human rights…then you couldn’t sell bogus bonds to your mother.  It has nothing to do with rights.  It has nothing to do with equality.  It has everything to do with the world engine.

cared

If they cared about women’s rights and gay rights these corporations would stop doing business with Moslem countries where women are mutilated and gays are executed.  They would stop doing business with China because of gross human rights violations.   The world engine cannot say Islamic terror no matter how much blood flows.  It cannot call the mass extermination of Christians in the Middle East genocide.  Here is a headline that came out today:

Saudi government ‘wants to EXECUTE gay people who show their sexuality in public & online’

SAUDI law makers could impose the death penalty on gay people who show their sexuality in public and on social media, according to reports.  The government in the Sunni Kingdom is reportedly demanding tougher punishments on those found guilty and claimed social media has caused a boom in homosexuality.   According to Okaz newspaper, the last six months has seen 35 cases of homosexuality and 50 cases of cross-dressers as well as cases of “sexual perversion” in Saudi Arabia.

NONE OF THESE COMPANIES ARE TRYING TO PUNISH SAUDI ARABIA THE WAY THEY ARE PUNISHING GEORGIA AND NORTH CAROLINA

It is all about the world engine…a complicated device indeed.  This engine operates on a double standard.  Because of the World Engine, Mayor Ed Lee of San Francisco bans flights to North Carolina but does not ban murderers in San Francisco.   Kate Steinle was walking on a busy pier in San Francisco with her father when there was a single popping sound in the air. She fell to the ground, struck by a bullet, the victim of what police say appears to be a random killing. The man who fired the deadly shot—45-year-old Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez—an illegal alien, a repeat felon who has been deported five times to Mexico—but protected by S.F.’s sanctuary policy.

silence

The world engine is why you hear all about the horrors of Christianity and nothing about Islam.  Mosques face no economic threat from these corporations.   If this were about equality they would not be trampling freedom of speech and freedom of religion.  Even gay activist Milo Yiannopoulos is disgusted with the open persecution of Christians in the name of gay rights.

Since Moslems and illegal aliens vote democratic they are protected.  The world engine sees Christianity as the sole obstruction to its brave new world.  The world engine has decided that the one last unprotected and unrepresented group should be the Christians.  They are fair game for insults, illegal arrests search and seizure and financial tyranny.

What is the end game of the world engine?  To complete its terraforming, it must create a herd of low information—amoral—drug addicted—government dependent people.  To do so, the engine forms strange alliances.   Feminists and Moslems—Seeker pastors and atheists—greedy corporations and socialists—all natural enemies gleefully work together.  They are united by hate not by love.

What the companies are doing to Georgia and North Carolina is not human kindness but a cold cynical marketing scheme.  Right now hurting Christians sells.   If enough people felt strongly about the oppression of devil worshipers, we would have Satan day at Disneyland.  Why do politicians cave to anti-God policies?  Because opposing churches gets you reelected.   Why do seeker pastors refuse to stand with their brothers for righteousness?  Because by looking anti-biblical, anti-judgmental gets you a crowd.

The behavior of these corporations is not just illegal it is felony extortion and intimidation…they have called the church out.  They have declared war on us.  They are testing the early version of the mark of the beast.   Here is the most important thing to know: When you are in a war–you must know you are in a war–prepare like you are in a war and fight like you are in a war.

engine

This world engine can be a very easy excuse for a fearful church.  But we must not violate scripture and fashion a doctrine in order to justify our fear.  Certainly things are going to “wax worse and worse” but Jesus forever sealed the issue in Matthew 24:14 when He declared a worldwide impact of His Gospel before the world would be allowed to end.

In a segment of the church today it is fashionable to want revival.  It is “in” to talk revival talk.  Satan has not wished to bury revival talk but, rather, he wants to congratulate us for only saying we want it. He is amused by our pompous symbolic effort to bring revival.  The devil delights in the fact of our pride.  We are so pleased with our awareness of the needs for revival that it seems enough to just want it.

There is a young crop of Christians that is entirely different from swooning saints.  I told you in a recent letter that the youth will bring a Lion Revival!  These young Christians ask disturbing questions about why we always seem to want something that we never deliberately try to get.  If the church is not careful, we may be passed over in favor of this new breed of believers who don’t have our religious childhood diseases.

announce

II Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”   That is a promise that we have all heard and believed, but probably never realized its true significance.  A promise and instructions are embedded in that verse that will remove Satan’s vile talons from the throat of our nation.

The eyes of the Lord see everything but they focus on what is going on with His people.  Let us come before Him now, aware of our total helplessness.  Let us announce that we are His people and that we do not fear our time, but we fear the Lord, and we have come to stand before His presence on behalf of a new demonstration of His glory on earth.  Then we will see the barriers removed and the long-awaited revival explode!

YOUR GREATEST HOUR

 

Your greatest hourYour Greatest Hour

 The art of doing what people say can’t be done.

By Mario Murillo

This is the hour of darkness, violence and perplexity.  This is the hour that sneers at hope—ridicules faith—taunts righteousness, and abhors dreams and visions.  The bullhorn of evil is drowns out any call to a just cause or a holy endeavor. It screams to every vessel of God, “You can’t do it—compromise or quit!

Hell is belching out defeatism—a defeatism so complete that its victim—redefines their failure and it becomes success.  

The government calls food stamps, condoms, needles, and methadone salvation for the needy.  The real message is “your highest hope is to live out your days in government slavery.”

-The White House calls acts of surrender to our enemies, diplomatic solutions.

-The thug culture tells urban youth turning tricks, dealing drugs and looting stores beats honest work.

-Political correctness says “keep saying that Islam is a religion of peace because it will keep Muslims from acts of violence.”

-Moral relativists say you can’t overcome perverse desires—therefore they are natural.

-Church growth models tell pastors it is a win—if you remove the Cross, Blood and hell from your sermons—to get a crowd.  This model indeed herded people into harmless meetings…but by distracting God’s people from revival it helped hasten the moral landslide of America.

Recent history proves compromise is unnecessary.  Between 1965 and 1985, 25 million Americans were converted to Christ.  Ministries like Billy Graham, Oral Roberts, Kathryn Kuhlman, Pat Robertson, and Jerry Faldwell had a combined television audience of 40 million people. The largest arenas and stadiums filled with hungry hearts yearning for a true encounter with God.  Those preachers shifted America toward morality.

praying for a boy

We are constantly being told what we can’t do. America can’t believe in God.  You can’t hold a marriage together.  Christians can’t live in victory.  Students in our Bible School hear that they can’t have miracles and the power of the Holy Spirit.   The list of things that are now impossible grows longer each day.

We hear faith-killing statements everyday: “the day for that is past.  People don’t want to hear it anymore.  There are no resources for that.  You are too young.  You are told old.  You are not educated.  You are overqualified.

Are you sick of hearing that you can’t do great and mighty things?  Does your gut tell you some awesome intervention of God can still happen?  This can also be your greatest hour—the hour you practice the art of doing what others say you cannot do.   Now learn the art!

you-cant-do-it copy

1Every visionary that ever lived did what others told them they could not do.   As dark and evil as today is—as daunting as the task may seem—many have faced impossible limits like this before.   In fact, the tortured culture of today was vividly described in this verse: “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.” –Daniel 11:32.   Here are two groups of people: 1.Those corrupted by flattery—seduced into believing that drunkenness and denial was natural.  2. Those that know God and do what their circumstances said they could not do.

This second group shakes off the despair, the religion and the threats of their time by knowing God.  This will take you to the next level.

2. Only you and God know what you can still do in this hour. No matter how many teachers you have, there is no substitute for your private relationship with Jesus.  He alone can tell you how to do the impossible.

Today, there is a core that is being pulled into an intimate knowledge of God.  He is drawing people to Himself—people who refuse to fear and be intimidated by what goes on around them.

1 Samuel 30: 6 tells us, “Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.”

David knew what the circumstances said.  He could hear the death threats.  What he wanted to hear was the voice of the God he had so passionately loved and served.  His cry is—“I know what life is telling me but what do YOU say?   Even when your life lies at your feet like sputtering rubble—like David’s did, the choice to trust God—to be led by God remains.

God said to David in 1 Samuel 30 verse 8 “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.”  This guidance violated all reason!  It opposed logic…it was what everyone would have told David he could not do.

3.You can know with absolute certainty God wants you to do—and when you know, you will become unstoppable. What are the threats of this time compared to God? Paul said, “If God be for us who can be against us.”   If God has spoken, how can your lack of resources matter?  How will He not provide?  If He says it is doable that settles it.

 

It is clear that the times we live in require wisdom and power that we can’t imagine.  The sheer sophistication of evil can overwhelm us.  Nevertheless there is no excuse to compromise.  No one has the right to tell God that reaching this generation is beyond the power of the Word of God.   We can do things to win America that people say we can’t do!

There are more ideas and tactics discovered with the help of the Bible—ideas that will reveal God’s will to the masses—push back the power of Satan—and do more good for this generation than all of the learning of philosophers and politicians combined.

There is unlimited authority and strength available through the Holy Spirit.  Do you really think He won’t show you what to do about your church, your career, your problems and your needs?  It for these matters that Jesus sent Him to us!

If God

4. Know when to start. When you know God, and you know what He wants you to do then you must start.  You must set the time.  You must take that first step to do what you know you are supposed to do.  He may only give you a first step…but when you take that step you will know what the next step is.

Finally: The greatest vessels of God appear in times of calamity and confusion. This day of trouble is your opportunity to be your best, to be more than you ever imagined you could be.

To do what others say you can’t do is the most eloquent act of defiance against fear: The moment you decide to stand, fight and build you will release the power of the Holy Spirit.  Unknown reserves of courage will well up within you!

Never forget that this will all soon be over:  In heaven, you will only regret what you did not leave on the field of battle.  It is the steps untaken, and the challenges avoided that will haunt you.

This will all soon be over.  The threat that seems so big now will look so puny there.   So let me ask you…what are you saving your courage for?  What are you withholding your talent, resources and dreams for?   Surely they are all for such a time as this.  This is your greatest hour—the hour that you did what others said you could not do.

 

Now I want to invite you to a convention that will help turn America around!

three voices

We three voices agree.  A supernatural intervention unlike anything we have seen in history must come or America is finished.  The church in America has been struck by an iceberg.  Over one thousand preachers a month are leaving the ministry defeated by the open hostility of our culture and the draining effect of lukewarm believers.  We cannot go on this way.  We must rise and face the challenge of a godless America.

This convention will confront the threat against the American Church head on.  We have brushed aside all of the frills and distractions you may associate with religious conventions.  Our focus is for you to receive fresh fire and direction.

Trump and Cruz send shivers down GOP spines

Trump Ted

Trump and Cruz send shivers down GOP spines

The prospect of either man as the Republican nominee is setting off alarm bells among officials and operatives across the country.
By ALEX ISENSTADT 01/05/16 05:11 AM EST

With only weeks before GOP primary voters first cast their ballots, the level of alarm among establishment Republicans about the enduring dominance of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz is reaching new heights.

In private conversations with several former aides, Mitt Romney, who in March will keynote the National Republican Congressional Committee’s annual fundraising dinner, has expressed rising frustration about Trump’s prolonged lead in polls and has argued that the real-estate mogul could inflict lasting damage on the party’s brand.

In Washington and elsewhere, meanwhile, Republicans are on the hunt for a political entity that can be used to stop Trump. In recent weeks, Alex Castellanos, a veteran TV ad man who was a top adviser to George W. Bush and Romney, has been meeting with top GOP operatives and donors to gauge interest in launching an anti-Trump vehicle that would pummel the Manhattan businessman on the television airwaves.
Those who’ve met with Castellanos say he’s offered detailed presentations on how such an offensive would play out. Castellanos has said that an anti-Trump ad campaign, which would be designed to cast him as a flawed strongman, would cost well into the millions. It was unclear, the sources said, whether Castellanos, who did not respond to a request for comment, would ultimately go through with the effort.

One growing worry about Trump or Cruz, top party officials, donors, and operatives across the country say, is that nominating either man would imperil lawmakers in down-ballot races, especially those residing in moderate states and districts.

“At some point, we have to deal with the fact that there are at least two candidates who could utterly destroy the Republican bench for a generation if they became the nominee,” said Josh Holmes, a former chief of staff to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “We’d be hard-pressed to elect a Republican dogcatcher north of the Mason-Dixon or west of the Mississippi.”

“Trump and Cruz are worrisome to most Republican candidates for governor, senator and Congress,” said Curt Anderson, a longtime GOP strategist and former Republican National Committee political director. “Some will say they are not worried, but they are.”

Romney has been calling around to former advisers to sound them out about the race, and to kvetch about Trump’s surprising durability. But in the immediate term, at least, he has expressed unwillingness to lend his hand to a stop-Trump effort — or to endorse a candidate more palatable to a GOP establishment paralyzed by his rise and worried that nominating him or Cruz would scupper an opportunity to control both the White House and Congress in 2017.

The concern is particularly acute in the Senate, where Republicans are fighting to preserve a relatively slim four-seat majority, defending more than half a dozen seats in hard-to-win swing states. Among them: Ohio, a presidential battleground state where Republican Sen. Rob Portman faces a perilous path to reelection.

When Trump traveled to the state in November, he met with Matt Borges, Ohio’s Republican Party chairman — who warned the front-runner that “divisive rhetoric won’t help us carry Ohio.”

“It’s time for people who have never won squat here to listen to the people who have been doing it for decades,” Borges said in an interview. “I’m just looking out for how we win in November.”

In Wisconsin, some party officials fret that a Trump or Cruz nomination could sink Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, who faces a tough race against his predecessor, Russ Feingold.
“Certainly, it would be bad for Ron Johnson if Trump is the nominee,” said Wisconsin Rep. Reid Ribble who, like Johnson, was swept into Congress in the Republican wave of 2010. “I think Trump is probably really bad down-ballot.”

Some top party strategists have spent months considering how the outcome of the primary will impact congressional races. Since last spring, the National Republican Senatorial Committee has been poring over research and polling data in hopes of better understanding how each of the Republican candidates running for president would affect GOP hopefuls running for Senate. The committee has held internal meetings to discuss the pros and cons of each presidential contender and how they would affect each key Senate race.

The House, where Republicans have a historic 30-seat majority, is more secure for the party. But there, too, the GOP has reason to worry: The party must defend nearly three dozen endangered seats — many of them in liberal-to-moderate states like California, New York and Florida.

Should Trump or Cruz win the nomination, party operatives say, some longtime officeholders in more conservative districts such as New Jersey Rep. Scott Garrett or Florida Rep. John Mica, who typically skate to general election wins, could find themselves in tougher-than-usual contests.

Cruz’s campaign pushes back on the idea that the Texas senator would imperil those running in House and Senate races. A Cruz nomination, they argue, would motivate conservatives to turn out to vote in a way that an establishment candidate couldn’t.

“Down-ballot Republicans need Ted Cruz at the top of the ticket because he is the only candidate in the race who can excite the base to show up in November,” said Rick Tyler, a Cruz spokesman. “If we chose another moderate, we will simply lose seats we would otherwise win.”

Trump’s campaign didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Some, though, are already counseling Republican candidates to begin to think about how to distance themselves from a Trump or Cruz in the event either wins the nomination.

“Candidates will need to develop their own brand,” said Pennsylvania Rep. Charlie Dent, a Republican who has represented a swing district in Lehigh Valley since 2004. “A candidate will need to run his or her own campaign and distance themselves from the top of the ticket.”

Among the tricky questions candidates will be forced to consider: whether it’s worth endorsing either potential nominee.

Illinois Rep. Bob Dold, a Republican who represents a liberal-leaning, suburban Chicago district, said he had ruled out endorsing Trump. He declined to say whether he’d back Cruz.

While Dold said he was monitoring the primary, he argued that voters would be willing to look beyond the party’s presidential nominee when determining his fate in November.

“Illinois 10th District,” he said, “has a long history of ticket splitting.”

 

Why American Pastors will not unify against Obama. Here’s what would happen if they did.

Why American Pastors will not unify against Obama.  Here’s what would happen if they did.

By Mario Murillo

Every day someone asks me “Mario, we hear your message warning America but what can we do?”   Here is something so doable—it is a vexation of epic proportions that we do not do it.  You deserve to know why we will not do it.

We have 400,000 ministers in America who—if they spoke out as one voice—could reverse our moral landslide almost overnight.  Think of that!  We could end the insanity of the White House before the weekend.

Every Sunday they speak to the largest voting bloc in America: 40+ Million.  They have a captive audience.  They could do it—without even being political—just by being Biblical.

Half a million pulpits thundering truth at the same time would be the death of the secular progressive agenda.  Waking up the sleeping giant and arming them with truth would cut off the air supply of the God-haters.

There is too much at stake for me to try to save reputation and avoid controversy.  Let me say it plainly: It is time for a non-violent revolution; a firewall against the onslaught of evil.  This is the only way this nation will be spared.

Satan has done a number on our Christian colleges, seminaries and denominations. The enemy has sent a neutralizing counterfeit in the seeker model.  He has used fear to paralyze prophetic preaching.  He has used false doctrine to deceive many into immorality.  He has used seduction to create widespread compromise.

No way will I be like Elijah did in the cave.    I don’t believe I am the only one left—there are thousands of true men and women of God in our nation who are faithfully preaching the word and opposing the godless agenda.    However, there are not nearly enough and time is running out.

It is a hair-pulling irony that the greatest threat America has ever face is also the most curable threat.  So why won’t they unify against Obama?  Here are the reasons listed in order of importance.

american-flag-tattered

Fear of losing non-profit status. In the 1950’s, Lyndon Johnson caused the church to make a deal with the devil. The deal is known as the 501C3 designation.  Frustrated by pastors who were telling their people not to vote for him, Johnson introduced legislation that silenced the church.  In exchange for IRS status, churches agreed not to endorse political candidates.  The church did not need this designation because they were already tax exempt in the Constitution.

It makes no sense to say you fear losing your status.  Unless we speak out, churches will be illegal.  What use will your nonprofit status be to you when you are an underground church?

Lifestyle: 50% of all preachers who were polled said that if there was another way for them to make money they would leave the ministry. That means that for many preachers the ministry is just a paycheck.

If speaking out against Obama will cost them tithers, if standing for marriage and the unborn will offend some, they will not risk losing their lifestyle.

Racism: In a spirit-filled church, during the memorial to the Gospel legend Andrae Crouch—who did more than anyone before him to cross racial lines with Gospel music—Stevie Wonder said, “The only reason that people have rejected Obama’s policies of inclusion is because he is black.”

Not only was this breathtakingly inappropriate—think about what he is saying:  If you disagree with Obama you are racist—and that statement, my friend, is truly racist.

Ignorance of Scripture: Preachers today do not know the Bible. Many no longer believe it is the inspired Word of God.  They say nothing about hell, The Cross, The Blood or the Second Coming of Christ.  They get their sermons from motivational speakers and secular music lyrics.  They do not pray and search the scriptures.  They search for buzz words.

They cannot protect the flock of God from atheists and secular humanists because they have no ammunition from the Word of God.

Ignorance of America and revival: Many do not value revival because they do not know how God worked in our history. They do not understand that past moral awakenings have rescued the United States from certain doom.  Ignorance of revival is why they do not see it is life and death.

Apathy: Two extremes create apathy; one is self-sufficiency and the other is total discouragement. When ministers have too much or too little, they say, “What is the use in trying anymore?” One has given up because they don’t need the drama. The other has given up because they believe it is hopeless.

Even though the causes are totally opposite, the result is the same:  A nation dies because leaders cannot muster the necessary outrage to take appropriate action.

Competition: Many preachers do not see their fellow ministers as brothers in arms. They see them as competition.  They see them as predators of their people.  Wanting the biggest church has blinded them to the fact that we are all in the same army; that we are on the same side.  Some preachers actually relish the idea that their competitor is losing members and suffering loss.

Make no mistake.  I am not anti-church and I am especially not anti-pastor.  I am loyal to my fellow preachers.  I am committed to the local church…but we must unify and speak out.

Millions of American Christians need marching orders not another breathy chat about how special they are.   If you really believed they were special you would equip them for special ops!

So here is the bottom line:  If the guilty parties refuse to repent of all of these excuses— it will cost us the nation.

Yes we can wipe out the insanity of the White House in no time if we would stand together.  If we do not, we will be remembered as the worst preachers in American History.

Proof Verses:

Kentucky clerk who denied gay marriage licenses released from jail

 Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk locked up for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, was released from jail on Tuesday — as her case also drew the personal attention of two presidential candidates.

Davis was greeted by a crowd of singing and cheering supporters as she exited the jail. They sang “Amazing Grace” and “God Bless America,” as her attorney vowed Davis would be back to work “this week.”

The order for her release came from U.S. District Judge David Bunning, the same judge who initially jailed the Rowan County clerk last Thursday on a contempt of court charge. But Bunning lifted that order Tuesday. He said the court is “satisfied” that since last week, the clerk’s office has been issuing marriage licenses “to all legally eligible couples” — those licenses have been handled by Davis’ deputy clerks.

At the same time, Bunning directed Davis not to “interfere in any way” with the marriage licenses now being issued by her office.

“If Defendant Davis should interfere in any way with their issuance, that will be considered a violation of this Order and appropriate sanctions will be considered,” he said in the order. Bunning is the son of former Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning.

  • Why Mike Huckabee is standing with Kentucky clerk Kim Davis

Her legal counsel did not say whether Davis had any intention to defy the courts.

Rather, attorney Mat Staver said: “She loves God, she loves people, she loves her work — and she will not betray any of those three.”

He said Davis will not violate her “conscience,” and said the court order “did not resolve the underlying issue.” He reiterated Davis’ request for an “accommodation” to remove her name from gay marriage certificates. “Kim still is asking for that today,” he said.

The decision from Bunning came down just before Davis received jailhouse visits from Republican presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz. They were ushered into the building shortly after the judge’s order was issued, as was Davis’ husband, Joe Davis.

“She was willing to go to jail for what she believed,” Huckabee said, as he accompanied Davis and her attorney out of the jail. He also tweeted:

Davis’ stand has become a political lightning rod in the 2016 race, rallying social conservatives while drawing the scorn of Democrats; some Republican presidential candidates also have suggested she went too far in refusing marriage licenses.

But 2016 candidates like Cruz and Huckabee, a former Baptist minister, have used her case to highlight the issue of religious freedom and reach out to evangelical Christians.
