WHY THE NFL JUST DECLARED WAR ON THE CHURCH

A deal reached by the National Football League and the NFL Players Association bans players from attending any indoor church services that are above 25 percent capacity, multiple sources told NBC Sports on Saturday.

There are some who will say, “But Mario, they have not declared war on the Church, they are just trying to protect their players.” Maybe this will help you see why that is not plausible:

The deal made no mention of any restrictions on attending protests. Meanwhile, the NFL’s Twitter account has been sharing and celebrating pictures of players engaging in protests around the country.

Marching shoulder to shoulder in tight crowds shouting—even with masks—is a far greater risk than attending church. The goal is eradicating Christianity from America, yet believers are having a hard time recognizing this as yet another piece of the puzzle.

And get this: The NFL not only wants to ban players from attending church, they want others to rat them out if they do go to church.

NBC Sports speculates that teams may “rely on contacts within the community to contact the team if/when violations are witnessed,” or even use a tip line. In other words, members of the community would be encouraged to report players they see trying to attend church and not following the social distancing guidelines. Other ideas suggested by NBC include tracking players or stationing officials at “local establishments,” potentially including players’ houses of worship.” Really?! Sending informants to churches?!

How often I have warned you. The Coronavirus is the excuse for banning Christianity in America.

Why do they want to ban the Church? The answer is a deep one. You must begin by looking at the food chain. In order of descending levels, here is the food chain:

Street rioters

Leftist professors

Marxist/Socialist leaders

Democrat Politicians

The Deep State (Barack Obama, et al.)

Globalists (George Soros and Co.)

Satan

Each level of the chain does not know who is above them or what their true intentions are. Each level has been duped by lies.

The NFL assault against American values began with Colin Kaepernick, then increased with the virus, and is intensifying under the banner of Black Lives Matter. This is nothing less than war being waged against our faith and freedoms.

Here’s the one thing that every tentacle of this global monster relies on: The apathy of the American Church and her inability to act as a single force. We are the one group they know they can offend and get away with it—the one group that remains passive in the face of evil.

Behind it all is Satan. Here is what I wrote in Chapter 2 of Vessels of Fire and Glory:

“Satan needs to destroy America. It’s his grand prize. The need consumes him. He fantasizes about it. He pursues the destruction of the U.S. with extreme prejudice and unrelenting patience. Why do you need to know about Satan’s passion to destroy America? Without this insight, you cannot muster the necessary urgency to obey God. You must know what is at stake, to be willing to pay the price.

“America is a firewall that prevents the one event Satan craves most: global anarchy. Anarchy is the only thing that will make the world embrace the devil’s worldwide dictatorship. This is why the most important goal of evil is chaos.”

Why do I tell you this? Because I believe the enemy is wrong about the American Church. I believe leftists confuse our kindness with weakness and mistake our patience for powerlessness. Neither do they realize that even a few intercessor warriors, plus God, makes a majority! Satan always forgets the promise that “the gates of hell will not prevail against the Church.”  Our best weapon is not to respond with the obligatory boycott—although, I can’t imagine watching a single NFL game after this latest assault on Christianity. Our most powerful weapon is prayer and the anointing that breaks the yoke!

But we also have immediate duties. If we don’t act soon it will be too late. We must vote for Trump. Marxists want him out and that makes it beyond urgent to keep him in. Revivalists and the prophetic core must close ranks. We must pull away from the ‘woke believers’ who are actually ‘make-believers’. The Bible describes them as “having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” (2 Timothy 3:5)

The Left is doing the work of the enemy of God, but Christian apathy is both the Left’s greatest friend and our greatest enemy.

I will repeat what I said in my book: “Why do you need to know about Satan’s passion to destroy America? Without this insight, you cannot muster the necessary urgency to obey God. You must know what is at stake to be willing to pay the price.”

 

 

 

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.

GAVIN AND DEMS CLOSE CHURCHES BUT LEAVE OPEN A BIG CAUSE OF THE SPIKE

This closure of churches is pure politics. Let me say—for all those who need to hear it—I certainly do not wish to spread the coronavirus. I am in favor of all rational and reasonable measures to keep people safe—but there is no evidence that closing churches will keep people safe. In fact, keeping churches closed is both foolish and dangerous.

On the other hand, there is evidence that allowing masses of people to march for BLM, shoulder to shoulder in the streets is dangerous and has spread the virus far more than people worshiping in church. Common sense tells you that. Millions on a rampage, compared to handfuls in worship? Tightly packed crowds shouting, with many not wearing masks? Give me a break.

Pictured below is a rally in California. This rally didn’t infect anyone? Why are these rallies still legal and church is illegal?

Isn’t it funny how those who want churches closed are the same people who hated churches way before all of this?

In her article for The Federalist, entitled, NYT: Blame Churches, Not Riots, For Rise In Positive Covid-19 Tests, Holly Scheer wrote,It’s disingenuous to pin the caseloads of these states on churches, ignoring that contact tracing connects dozens of cases in Texas to churches, for example, out of their 230,000 and counting total cases. It is divisive. It’s fake news. A tiny fraction of a percent can’t responsibly or seriously be described as a “major source” of transmission. And it’s a total distraction from what drives the predominance of coronavirus infections.”

The New York Times said that churches are a major source of COVID, but how bad is it really? Here’s their quote: “More than 650 coronavirus cases have been linked to nearly 40 churches and religious events across the United States since the beginning of the pandemic, with many of them erupting over the last month as Americans resumed their pre-pandemic activities, according to a New York Times database.”

They said there were, “Over 650 cases.” Where? In New York? No, 650 in the entire nation, since the beginning of the pandemic! But that is fewer than half the cases in just Florida alone that have been linked directly to travel from New York to Florida.

 

On the other hand, the New York Times is not reporting word one—nothing, zero, zilch—on how many got sick at the protest marches that included millions of people. We also are told not to ask about infection rate spikes in Border States that are coming from Mexico.

The protests, looting, and desecration of monuments is a protected class of the Trump-hating Left. The reason church is singled out is even clearer. Evangelicals are more likely to vote for Trump. That’s why we are being singled out. But it gets darker than that.

Isn’t it obvious to you that the same people who want churches closed, have hated churches all along? They hated church before Trump was on the radar. It is what health insurance companies call a “preexisting condition.”

The final thing they refuse to talk about is how many people are dying from suicide, addiction, and despair due to this pandemic. It is completely dishonest for them to claim they are trying to save lives, while at the same time, they kill hope and ban faith. Neighborhoods are being decimated because of lawlessness. Closing churches adds to the lawlessness. Evil goes unchallenged in neighborhoods because churches are closed. People are dying because churches are closed.

Bars, health clubs, and malls do not impact people in any manner similar to the way churches do. The fellowship, the comfort, the Word of God, and the worship are essential in this hour.

Do you know what New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said when confronted with the double standard of church versus marches? He said the marches were “too important to stop.” Get that? He thinks it is okay for people to risk getting sick at an “important” event like a BLM march, but not okay to risk getting sick by worshiping together in church—even though the risk is much, much greater for the protesters!

California needs to hear the Gospel—needs to feel the presence of God—hear anointed worship and preaching.

The only hope for America is for God and believers to convince our leaders that the danger of going to church is nothing compared to the ruthless, wicked, agenda of the Marxists, ANTIFA, and the Democrat Party. It is time for the silent majority to make our voices heard!

THE RELIGIOUS SPIRIT

A religious spirit has been unleashed. This devil is beating church leaders down to a docile lump. Preachers who once stood against sin and persecution, are letting the Bride of Christ turn into the battered wife of the State.

The ban on singing in church is both wholly illegal and unenforceable. Disobeying it is a no-brainer. But many preachers can’t even draw the line here. Read this giddy and submissive letter to church members from a Spirit-filled denomination that has over 1,300 churches in California:

“We will worship this Sunday without singing our praise to God. We were strongly encouraged by our ____________ denominational head to follow the strictest guidelines which in California has a ban on singing. Thank you for your understanding. We trust we will be able to sing in worship to God soon.”

Several reactions come to mind. First, who are they trusting to allow them to worship God soon? Second, Daniel prayed anyway, despite the decree of authority. Peter preached anyway, after being ordered to be silent. But we can’t bring ourselves to sing, anyway?

How have we fallen for such a ridiculous attack? Because, the religious spirit is the most powerful in Satan’s army. The religious spirit is the worst—the vilest—the most potent of devils. Why? Because its assignment is not the world, but the church itself.

Demons are working the streets to foment riots, killing, and chaos. The religious spirit works on the inside of the church, particularly among preachers, to permanently render them powerless. It is this demon of religion that blinds us to the towering injustice being levelled at us. This ban is the most insane double-standard ever.

Democrat Governors and Mayors encourage BLM marches and demonstrations, but church singing is banned because it supposedly spreads viral vapors. But aren’t vapors present when BLM marchers are shouting things like “kill the cops” at the top of their lungs, as they march shoulder to shoulder?

Bill de Blasio has this explanation for the madness, “Calls for social justice (by which he means marches) were too important to stop.” The message here is that the church, worshiping God, is not important. They are sending the message, “Don’t sing. We can tell you to do whatever we want.”  But, if we, as the church, can’t draw a line in the sand now, when will we? How far are we going to let them go?

It is this religious devil that makes preachers comply. It is working hard to make traitors out of preachers. Matthew Henry predicted it when he wrote concerning those who were “settled teachers in the church, and had gained reputations as such, but afterward betrayed the truth they had taught, and revolted (turned back) to error…”

He goes on to explain why such a preacher is a prize: “and from such the danger is the greater, because least suspected. One false traitor in the garrison may do more mischief than a thousand avowed enemies (outside).” The damage a preacher can do in this condition is frightening.

There are 3 things a religious spirit brings.

  1. A Hypocritical Spirit. “There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him”” (John 3:1-2).

Nicodemus admitted the miracles of Jesus were undeniable. He and all the Jewish leaders knew who Jesus was. Yet, he came to Christ under the cover of night. Neither he nor the other leaders would take a stand for the truth. They knew the rejection and ridicule they would face. Likewise, a devil whispers in the ear of preachers that they must comply with stupid laws, rather than risk ridicule.

  1. A Territorial Spirit. They must hold onto their place (position). The religious devil drives ministers to protect their place, and their turf. After the resurrection of Lazarus, the religious leaders did not see it as an astounding miracle, only a political threat.

“Then the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered a council and said, “What shall we do? For this Man works many signs. If we let Him alone like this, everyone will believe in Him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place (position) and our nation.” Notice the first thing they worried about was their place, not the nation (John 11:47-48).

This demon makes a man think about his salary, prestige, and his control of people. His first love is gone. His priority is self-preservation. They will not oppose the ban on singing, because they are afraid of losing their place.

“When the profession of Christianity begins to cost men dear, then shall many be offended…” -Matthew Henry. 

  1. Hatred against their own roots. Then He said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched it out, and it was restored as whole as the other. Then the Pharisees went out and plotted against Him, how they might destroy Him.” Everyone was rejoicing, except the leaders. Their Jewish heritage is one of miracle after miracle, but not only were they not rejoicing over this miracle, they wanted to kill Jesus! (Matthew 12:13)

A religious demon drives a minister to hate what he used to love, even to oppose his first love. A religious spirit can actually make a man who once loved the move of God become boiling mad at people who are obeying God, or pressing toward revival.

We all know that 2020 is the year that Satan launched the highest tide of evil in American history. Wave after wave has struck our nation, with the intention of destroying us. Now, the greatest devil of all is at work—the religious spirit among leaders. This devil has come to destroy the people of God from within.

There is nothing worse than to see devils controlling a man that God once used.  And there is nothing more glorious than seeing men and women of God rise up in the Name of Jesus and send this religious devil back to the pit of hell.

It is time for the church of Jesus Christ to sing louder!
