I have a plan

By Mario Murillo

Many people have a dream.  I have a plan.   A plan is more powerful than a dream because a plan turns a dream into reality.  You cannot overstate the importance of planning.  If you do not have a plan, someone else’s plan will control you.

Planning pulls the future into the present.  It gives you advance power over trouble that is heading your way.

The hardest part of planning is to let go of things that worked 5 years ago—no matter how nostalgic a method may be, you better know when the Holy Spirit says to let it go.

Maintaining intimacy with God is life and death to a ministry.  You can put your ministry on cruise control and drift out of range of God’s voice.  Churches have folded and ministries have closed because they were caught without a plan and failed to adapt.

A God plan is a weapon against approaching danger.  Noah did not build the ark while it was raining.  Only God can give us the right plan.  I believe He has.  God gave me an eye to see past the camouflage and warned me of impending danger.

I want to explain a coming disaster and the plan God has given me to face it and reverse its damage for the glory of Christ.

The coming disaster:  Obama did many bad things to America.  He stagnated our economy.  His style of leading from behind fomented war and instability in the world.  His sympathy for Islam created barriers to fighting terrorism.  But the worst thing he did was to our children.

-The number of youth who claim to be atheists doubled in the 8 years he was in office.

-The entire social justice warrior snowflake agenda came on his watch.  Colleges and universities declared war on free speech and opposing views.  They saw racism and sexism in everything (even peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were called racist).  Students began to feel micro-aggressions from anything that challenged their beliefs.

-He framed Islam—which executes women and gays—as less oppressive than the teachings of Jesus and millions of our youth bought the lie.  He created a mindset of hypocrisy and contradiction.

-He made government god.  He grew government with a stolen credit card and laid a $20 trillion debt on the backs of our children.

He took away their hope and cut them off from the source of life.  Check out what our children are saying now:

42% said they will never own a house or have a meaningful job.

34% said they will have a lower standard of living than their parents

58% say that asking for help will not solve their problems.

44% do not know what to believe.

Young America’s Foundation released its annual Youth Misery Index and found it at a record high. “Over the course of Obama’s presidency, the YMI has spiked an alarming 29.9 points, an increase of 36 percent.”

This heart-wrenching disaster embodies the cry of a whole generation:  12-year-old Katelyn Nicole Davis from Cedartown, Georgia used Facebook Live on December 30th to live stream her suicide.  As she hanged herself in her front yard, the video played for an entire 20 minutes.

I have a plan to prevent these tragedies.  It is a plan that deserves a chance because it will work. 

Here’s the plan: 

Appoint regional directors who will oversee ongoing soul-winning and follow-up.  This will multiply our outreach tenfold.  They will sustain relationships with local pastors and leaders, not only to retain our results, but to prepare for our return to these cities.

-Train and release an army to the front lines: We need workers who can pray for the sick in the streets—not just in auditoriums.  These workers are beyond essential because they will bring in lost souls to our events.  The great mistake today is to assume if you advertise, people will show up.  Imagine 10,000 young people trained to go out and bring back the harvest!

Take our internet media platform to the next level.  Millions have read our blog and looked at our videos.  This is not nearly enough.  We must enhance our skills, technology and content for a new generation.

-Choose strategic sites for our events.  We must be near the problem.  We must be in a venue that is large enough to make an impact outside church walls.  We must face reality: most Christian events draw only Christians.  If we want the unchurched to come to our meetings we must be in halls that will attract them.  Even though this triples our cost, it must be done or we will only preach to ourselves.

-Open a college in Reno for the next generation of American Evangelists.  We dare not hoard 50 years of front line experience.  Too many of our Christian colleges are teaching theories untested in true warfare.  We must help shape the soul winners of tomorrow.

How do we know this plan will work?  The most important way to judge if a plan will work is to look at the track record of the planner.  Since our earliest breakthroughs in the radical campus at Berkeley, we have known how to invade the impossible.  We know how to hire the best—give people the best training—adapt to current trends of the youth culture—use a fresh approach to share a timeless message—and release signs and wonders in the mainstream of the youth culture.

God said, “Choose 10 cities. Invest $1 million and you will start a movement—a national movement.”  Where will I get a million dollars?  The good news is that it is in the pockets and the bank accounts of those who receive this letter.  The miracle is in releasing it.  The miracle is in the Holy Spirit’s power to turn your good intentions into action.

This blog has never been about fundraising.  It has been offered freely as a tool to inform and ignite action for the cause of Christ in America.  Most of all, I ask for your prayers in this epic outreach that Jesus is forging through us.  Nevertheless, your gifts of love are the reason this mission is possible.  Thank you for being a part of this harvest.

Here is the one thing that will make all the difference in the world: First time givers!  I am calling on you to donate to MMM if you have never done it before.   No matter what, your gift will make a difference—it will make all the difference!

Of course, we need our loyal supporters to give and I am profoundly grateful to all of you.  But the fact is thousands read this letter are on the sidelines…but if they get in the battle it will turn the tide of the war.  I am not asking you for a million dollars (although, it would be wonderful to receive such a gift). I am asking for you to listen to your heart and invest in our children and grandchildren.

Many of you have seen revivals or had the honor of growing up in a powerful church.  Shouldn’t the next generation get to see revival?  I am not begging for money… I am begging for souls.  This is all about your children and your grandchildren.  Satan has pulled out all the stops to destroy them.  Shouldn’t we open our hearts and our pocketbooks to save them?  I have a plan—it will work—it deserves a chance—help me put it into action.

WE WON’T FORGET

protester-blog-centerpiece-copy

We won’t forget how you bloodied people because of the shirt or hat they wore.  We won’t forget how you burned and looted.  We won’t forget how you torched freedom of speech.

We Won’t Forget

By Mario Murillo

We won’t forget how you bloodied people because of the shirt or hat they wore.  We won’t forget how you burned and looted.  We won’t forget how you torched freedom of speech.

Schumer, Pelosi, and you gaggle of Dem leaders who remain silent in the face of anarchy—do you honestly think we will forget?  We will remember your tacit approval of these riots.

We aren’t fooled by your support for open borders.  It’s not about equality…it’s about staying in power.  How can we forget that?

You hapless Hollywood haranguers who spewed murderous venom—comparing Trump to Hitler, and for calling not only for his death, but for the death of his entire family—will not be forgotten.

haraugne

You nattering nabobs of journalism will live in infamy.  CNN, MSNBC, The Washington Post and The New York Times…you have sold your souls to override the will of the people.  Thanks to the internet, social media, and yes, bloggers, you will be fact checked into irrelevance.  How rich!  You complain that Russia hacked the election…while you were the hack of the century for Hillary.   We will never forget how you are still trying to manipulate reality.

We will remember how you all thought you were a resistance movement.  No one said it better than John Feehery in his article for The Hill entitled Dem resistance is futile:

“America is not on the brink of civil war. Trump is not Adolph Hitler or Benito Mussolini. Nor is the so-called “resistance” really a resistance. It’s a political movement.

It’s certainly no French Resistance, which arose after the Nazis invaded and then occupied France in 1940. 

The French resistance movement started slow but picked up steam as the German regime revealed itself to be a murderous, plundering, racist group of thugs. By 1944, the resistance became a full-fledged army, capable of going behind enemy lines, cutting off telephone lines, blowing up train tracks and otherwise causing mayhem.

The Democratic resistance movement isn’t capable of stopping Trump’s efforts to appoint his own Cabinet officials because Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) helpfully changed Senate rules right before he retired. 

Nor will Democrats be able to stop Trump from appointing his highly-qualified pick to the Supreme Court. 

They aren’t much of resistance movement because Trump is not a Nazi and because the United States is not Germany in the 1930s.

An imperfect understanding of history is every bit as harmful as complete ignorance of history. 

The Democrats, and more than a few Never Trump Republicans, imagine themselves to be brave, solitary figures standing against the rise of a brutal dictator.

That ridiculous. 

We not only have plenty of institutional checks and balances arrayed against any potential dictator. We also are, as a people, a nation that takes its liberties pretty seriously. 

We are not the Weimar Republic. We don’t have inflation hitting 300 percent. Unemployment is not at 30 percent but at 4.8 percent. 

We might have our fair share of disagreements, but we have a constitutional process to resolve them amicably, without bloodshed.”

hillary-supporter-attacks-elderly-pro-trump-supporter

We will not forget how thugs, thieves and liars tried to pawn themselves off as guardians of liberty.

We are only two years away from having to remember.  We will not loot, lie, or burn… we will vote.  We will enter the booth with vivid images of both your lawless behavior and the politicians who sided with you.

But there are other things we will not forget: 

We will not forget the soldiers who died to give us the freedom of speech that you are so wholeheartedly abusing.

We will not forget the unborn whose rights—in the name of rights—you have so blatantly disregarded.

Most of all, we will not forget that we are one nation under God.  We will never forget the holy advantage prayer has been in every national crisis.  We will never forget the Bible—the sacred scriptures that formed the character that made us great.

Lastly, we won’t forget the power of forgiveness.  Many young hearts, because of peer pressure, are being swept up in a frenzy of deceit.  We know Christ has the power to open their eyes and give them new life.  We will never forget compassion and the Good News!

THE DEMOCRATS ARE DIGGING THEIR OWN GRAVE

digging

My prediction is that Dems are digging their own grave and their revolt against his legitimacy will, in the short term at least, boost Trump’s popularity. Most Americans will conclude he is honestly trying to fulfill the mandate he won and that the fevered rush to destroy him is neither principled nor patriotic.

THE DEMOCRATS ARE DIGGING THEIR OWN GRAVE

By Michael Goodwin

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, the top Dems in Congress, led a raucous demonstration Monday night, as if they are community organizers. And Obama couldn’t bear the irrelevance after eight days out of office and felt compelled to encourage disruptions.

This is Third World behavior and it’s now the M.O. of one of America’s two political parties.

Then there’s California, the epicenter of Dem strength. Radicals there, spurred on by pro-Mexico immigrants, are ginning up an effort to split from the United States and they might get a proposal on the ballot. I say we take their wine and let them go.

If California secedes and its 55 electoral votes come off the board, Dems will never win another American election. On the other hand, Hillary Clinton could become president of the breakaway state and the rest of us would be free of the Clinton stain.

cali_sink

Secession is one way the swamp could drain itself. Sally Yates’ way is another.

The acting attorney general was rightfully sacked the instant after she climbed a soapbox and refused to defend Trump’s executive order in court. It would have been a more admirable gesture if she had the decency to resign. Instead, she thought she could defy the president and keep the job.

Her choice was not a minor act of insubordination. It was a public challenge to the constitutional authority of the president, a power left to Congress and the judiciary.

As a result, she was shunned and hid in disgrace. Oh, wait, that’s what would happen in a better world.

In this one, Democrats hailed her as a “patriot” amid predictions a political star is born.

My prediction is that Dems are digging their own grave and their revolt against his legitimacy will, in the short term at least, boost Trump’s popularity. Most Americans will conclude he is honestly trying to fulfill the mandate he won and that the fevered rush to destroy him is neither principled nor patriotic.

There is a catch: Our cultural impatience won’t give Trump endless time or big room for error. He must pick his fights with discretion and wage them with smart, methodical moves that bring clear results.

Equally key, he can’t become a prisoner of Washington. While social media is important, he must get out of town regularly to meet people where they live and remind them that he’s fighting their fights.

He should continue to court core Democrats, especially members of manufacturing unions and open-minded black and Latino voters.

If he does all that, and if he’s lucky, America will be great again. That’s what matters.

Donald Trump: Working to improve the lives of people who hate him

working

Donald Trump is working to improve the lives of those who hate him.  He is working to make life better for every demographic group that is calling for his removal and even his death.

Donald Trump: Working to improve the lives of people who hate him

Donald Trump is working to improve the lives of those who hate him.  He is working to make life better for every demographic group that is calling for his removal and even his death.

Even though only 8% of blacks voted for him and many black leaders vilify him, he is working to reduce crime, fix crumbling streets and buildings and bring real jobs and real hope to the inner city…I can see why you hate him.

He is working to improve the lives of women.  He built a multi-billion-dollar empire on a system of merit that promoted men and women equally.  He wants to make the workplace family friendly with maternity leaves that are stronger than our current federal law.

He wants to get government off the back of small business—women are the fastest growing group of small business owners.  I can see why women don stupid hats and cuss him out and call him Hitler.

Donald Trump is working for the native people of America.  No, the pipeline from Canada will not go through your burial grounds.  The president wants to make us energy independent so our enemies cannot turn our nation into a burial ground.

The President is working for the environmentalists who hate him.  Everyone knows the future is in renewable energy but we need a bridge to that future.  They remind me of the new-age midwives who want women to give birth cold-turkey just to feel all the pain. Environmentalists want to shut down all fossil fuels and create calamity for the rest of us—especially poor people.

A lot of these tree huggers don’t have to drive a semi to feed their family.  They will fly around in private jets polluting the air while they lecture they poor fighting to get to work in the only car they can afford.  Refusing to build this bridge to renewable energy is a great way to kill the mother and the baby.

He is working for the poor by securing our borders.  When a criminal or a terrorist enters our country where do they go?  They immediately set up shop in the inner city.  They take the jobs from those who need them most—they plan their mischief in the ghetto.  I can see why Americans hate Trump…he is putting them first.

When will you wake up from your liberal media induced coma?  Obama had eight years to make black lives matter in Chicago.  He could have sent in the national guard and stopped the killing.  He was more concerned about Syrian refugees than you—I can see why you love him.

To the overwhelming number of millennials who live in your parent’s basement: I can see why you love Obama, he was more militant about putting men in women’s restrooms that he was about putting you in a real career.

And finally, to all of you celebrity Pastors still afraid of support Trump because he is not “pastor” material, let me say this: Would you stay in a church where half of the people lied about you every day and wanted you out.  Would you—knowing there were greener pastures, a bigger church with a higher salary and more adulation—stay and serve?

Government work?  Trump didn’t need it.  But tell me, where else could Obama have gone?  Can you see Barack trying to build a business in New York City?  He couldn’t do anything but government…and, in my opinion, he was deplorable in government—buttressed by the fantasies of the liberal left.

With all bias against him and the massive unfairness heaped on him…Trump still wants to make America great.  How easily—Mr. celebrity pastor—could Trump say, “the heck with all this, I don’t need this for me and my family.

There are many areas Donald Trump needs to grow spiritually but in one area he has zoomed ahead of most preachers: Matthew 5: 44 “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you…”

An inauguration followed by a regurgitation

Imagine what would happen to a conservative actor standing before 200,000 people and saying that Obama had wet dreams about his daughter and that she was his object of lust.  Imagine this same conservative calling Obama, Adolf Hitler.

An inauguration followed by a regurgitation

By Mario Murillo

Imagine what would happen to a conservative actor standing before 200,000 people and saying that Obama had wet dreams about his daughter and that she was his object of lust.  Imagine this same conservative calling Obama, Adolf Hitler.

The ensuing firestorm would engulf every media outlet.  People would line up to kill that person and it would probably be legal to do it in California.  That actor would not only never work in Hollywood again—he or she and their entire family would have to enter a witness protection program.

Nasty woman Ashley Judd spewed all of this out about Trump and it will enhance her career.  She will not be persecuted, she will not have to worry about backlash. She is a beneficiary of the most elaborate and dishonest double standard in American history.

On Friday, January 20, 2017, we had an inauguration.  Millions were inspired and encouraged by the beauty, pageantry, patriotism and moral conviction of the day long events.  We went to bed with a hope that the years of stagnation were giving way to renewed greatness.

Saturday, January 21, 2017, we had a mass regurgitation.  With apologies to bulimics everywhere, I say, nasty women—shoved their collective fingers down their throat and—upchucked the most putrid attitudes and nonsensical bile ever to contaminate the National Mall.

I refer to it as regurgitation because all the issues brought up in their vacuous screeching were digested and settled during the election—the people spoke—women voted for Trump in record numbers.  The election is over.

170121133750-12-womens-march-dc-super-169

This is not a blanket condemnation of these protestors. I am certain are many sincere and responsible women who came with an honest beef about America—who wanted Hillary to win.

What I am highlighting is the villains who hijacked the movement.  The same thing that happened to Black Lives Matter happened again today.   Nasty women led the demonstrations in obscene and silly rants. They are poisoned with arrogance, ignorance, and hate.

Arrogance because they insist that all women believe what they say simply because they said it.   It is arrogance to say that no women should be pro-life.  It is arrogance to say that the election was rigged simply because we say it is rigged.  It is arrogance to want martial law to force Trump out of office.

They raged about Russian hacking which was a mouse compared to the elephant in the room: Mainstream media bias for Clinton.

Ignorance in that they do not understand how the Constitution works (nor do they seem to care.)  Speaker after speaker vilified the electoral college—yea, they cursed the electoral college.  They accused people—who did their duty by honoring the votes of their respective states—of being traitors.

They are filled with hate.  Madonna hurling the mandatory F-bombs said she wanted to bomb the White House because Trump is Hitler.  Ashley, Madonna and so many other speakers competed to find new lows of obscene insults and mindless rage.

Leo Tolstoy observed that the way to tell how civilized a society is by what they consider laughable.  Today, what these women thought was funny, was horrifying.  And it is terrifying to think of the millions they influence.

But there is a great hope in this situation.  When you look at the pattern set by so many radicals on the left.  They seem to be powerful and flaring up in power.  But looks are deceiving.  Just before a star dies it becomes a supernova.  It’s like a last screaming hurrah before it expires.

As I said Black Lives Matters flared up and lost credibility.  So, will 68 Democratic leaders who boycotted the inauguration.  As so will these nasty women because they live in a bubble.  They don’t know that even close friends are queasy with their extremes.   Once you set a course of crudeness and ranting there is nowhere to go but down.NEW YORK - MAY 10: Donald Trump attends "The Celebrity Apprentice" season finale at the at American Museum of Natural History on May 10, 2009 in New York City. (Photo by Brad Barket/Getty Images)

A final sense of hope that I feel—and it will make the left rage more than anything else I can say—is the hand pf providence.   Hillary had everything.  She had Obama.  She had $1.2 billion to spend on her campaign.  She had every major news agency acting like a mouthpiece of her campaign…and yet she lost.

Trump, on the other hand, seemed to have the whole world against him.  And the endless number of opponents stepped to the plate to destroy him.  For reasons that escape human wisdom, he stayed alive.  He moved on and his enemies fell by the wayside.

When I would watch Kung Fu movies I always wondered about something:  After the hero had just whipped 50 men without breaking a sweat why did the others keep coming.   Did they think they could win?

To listen to these nasty women today you would think that Trump was a paper tiger.  I was like they knew nothing of what has happened in the last 18 months.  He’s been called these names before, none of their insults were new or eloquent.  They would be wise to survey the damage and carefully assess the situation.  They should see if their extreme vileness is only entertaining a shrinking core.

Patriotic Christians must be wise and vigilant too!   What happened today is the real state of affairs in this country.  I say this to wake you up!  Trump’s election did not erase leftist debauchery…it merely turned over the rock and allowed the vileness to scurry everywhere.  We cannot think t Trump’s election is the end of leftist insanity.  We can stare at a miracle and fall into apathy.  If anything, today’s regurgitation should make us resolved to build what has started.  It is time for us to be brave.  To bear insults and persecution and stand for righteousness at all cost.

 

LOOK AT WHAT TRUMP HAS JUST DONE ABOUT OBAMACARE

President Donald Trump directed government agencies on Friday to freeze regulations and take steps to weaken Obamacare, using his first hours in the White House to make good on a campaign promise to start dismantling his predecessor’s healthcare law.

By Jeff Mason and Roberta Rampton | WASHINGTON

President Donald Trump directed government agencies on Friday to freeze regulations and take steps to weaken Obamacare, using his first hours in the White House to make good on a campaign promise to start dismantling his predecessor’s healthcare law.

Heading into the Oval Office shortly after the conclusion of his inaugural parade, Trump signed an order on the Affordable Care Act that urged government departments to “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation” of provisions that imposed fiscal burdens on states, companies or individuals.

It also called for efforts to give states greater flexibility in implementing healthcare programs while developing “a free and open market in interstate commerce for the offering of healthcare services and health insurance.”

Health experts had speculated that Trump could expand exemptions from the so-called individual mandate, which requires Americans to carry insurance or face a penalty, or the requirement that employers offer coverage.

Experts also believe the administration could try to reduce the “essential benefits,” such as maternity care and mental health services, that insurance plans must cover.

The White House did not provide further details about the executive order.

Trump’s spokesman Sean Spicer said the White House also directed an immediate regulatory freeze for all government agencies in a memo from Trump’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus. He did not offer details.

Repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, one of former President Barack Obama’s signature laws, was a central pledge for Trump during the presidential election campaign. Republicans in the U.S. Congress have not yet laid out a plan to recast the insurance program.

In a hastily arranged ceremony, surrounded by some of his aides, Trump sat behind the presidential Resolute Desk and signed the order. He also signed commissions for his newly confirmed defense secretary, James Mattis, and his homeland security secretary, John Kelly.

Trump spoke briefly about his day with reporters. “It was busy, but good. It was a beautiful day,” he said.

 

Hillary, Meryl, and Madonna do not have a clue about real people

real-people-copy

Did you see Ms. Streep morph into Joan of Arc at the Golden Globes?  “We are,” She said with a wistful sigh. “the most vilified people in America.”  How many million women would love to be “vilified” like that?

Hillary, Meryl, and Madonna do not have a clue about real people

By Mario Murillo

Hillary, Meryl, and Madonna do not have a clue about real people.  They are ignorant of Americans—60+ million of them—who voted for Trump.  Those who voted for him are not racists, homophobes or any of the lazy labels that aging actresses love to stick on them. (Just to be clear: what we have here are two actresses who think they are politicians and one politician who is truly an actress.)

Did you see Ms. Streep morph into Joan of Arc at the Golden Globes?  “We are,” She said with a wistful sigh. “the most vilified people in America.”  How many million women would love to be “vilified” like that?

Earth to divas: Real people get up early—real early.  They do not have a cadre of fawning domestics make their kids’ lunch, or heat the limo seats for the ride to Opulent Academy.

Real people dig in their couches to find change.  They go to things called grocery stores.  They buy milk and bread.  They pay things called bills. They have things called budgets.  They battle inhuman traffic to get to a job that does not pay nearly enough.  They face crime and injustice every day. At night, they worry about the future of their children.

Real people have a conscience, go to church and pray.  They believe that God is intervening in the welfare of America and Israel.  Their numbers are growing and if you want to guarantee 8 years of Trump keeping on lying about those who support him.

Back in La La Land:  These 3 poor dears think they are relevant.  Madonna offers sexual favors.  They pontificate: “If your opinion differs from mine you are racist, homophobic and I decree that you are hereby you banished!”  (Along with football and MMA). Instead of banishing anyone, they are solidifying the support for Trump.

It’s a law that is as certain as gravity: Attack the people who voted for Trump and his popularity will grow.  12 Republican candidates, the mainstream media, Megyn Kelly and Hillary Clinton all found out the hard way. (See basket of deplorables.)

What is in the mind of these celebrity senior citizens?  What makes them think their word trumps reality?  Meryl’s heart was broken to see Trump mock a handicapped man.  Hillary made an entire campaign ad about this.  Yet, they both know it is a complete lie.  But, with a well-practiced sweep of their hair they say, “Dahling, I said it, it must be true.”

George Clooney said, “as a celebrity, “I can’t change policy … but I can make things louder.” True.  However, a lie told louder is still a lie.  Real people know that.
