SPEAK NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE

This is the clearest warning God has ever given me. God is emphatically telling the American Church, “Speak now, or forever hold your peace.” Whatever we are going to say, whatever we are going to do, whatever action we are going to take to protect our rights as Christians and Americans, we must do now.

Doubt my words at your own peril. Churches are about be closed forever. People of faith will soon be marginalized, both socially and economically.  What we are talking about here is nothing short of your children’s and your grandchildren’s future. They will live in a world where they will be targeted for the faith you have given them. And the worst part is: you will not be here to protect them when they endure the worst of it.

Listen closely—the threat I am describing is not years away, it is not even months away, it is days away. Yes, absolutely, we are days away from the new excuse the Democrats are preparing to use to wipe out both the First and Second Amendments to the Constitution.

Here is what has happened to justify the urgency of my writing. Satan has been working on this masterstroke of tyranny for years. The tapestry of lies he has woven is the greatest manipulation of truth in all of history. It transforms light into darkness, and darkness into light. It changes hatred into love, and love into hatred. It makes racism equality and equality racism.  They have left few, if any, words that carry their original meanings.

The web of evil that has fallen over all of America is clearly described in Isaiah 59:4-8:

“No one calls for justice,
Nor does any plead for truth.
They trust in empty words and speak lies;
They conceive evil and bring forth iniquity.
They hatch vipers’ eggs and weave the spider’s web;
He who eats of their eggs dies,
And from that which is crushed, a viper breaks out.

Their webs will not become garments,
Nor will they cover themselves with their works;
Their works are works of iniquity,
And the act of violence is in their hands.
Their feet run to evil,
And they make haste to shed innocent blood;
Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity;
Wasting and destruction are in their paths.
The way of peace they have not known,
And there is no justice in their ways;
They have made themselves crooked paths;
Whoever takes that way shall not know peace.”

That passage describes exactly what is happening, from our lowest back alleys, to our highest offices of power.

And the following verses (14-15) tell us what is coming next.

“Justice is turned back,
And righteousness stands afar off;
For truth is fallen in the street,
And equity cannot enter.
So truth fails,
And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.”

The moment when you will make yourself a prey for Marxist wolves, is even now at the door.

I am sick to death with those who refuse to call the church to action. Let me put it plainly. You have two choices: either vote for Trump, or make a plan to move your family to safety. I am also sick of those pastors who refuse to come to this obvious conclusion.

When you hear them screaming, “Mario Murillo is an extremist!” remember that we got to this point of desperation because of the lukewarm voices who refused to admit the approach of danger.

-Remember when California told us not to use our Bibles? Pastors did not galvanize a resistance to stop it.

-Remember when marriage was destroyed? Again, there was no national firewall of righteous leaders to intervene.

-Then they told us to close our churches, even as they condoned mass protests that led to violence and helped spread the virus. Again, there was no unanimous action from American church leaders.

-Then they told us that we cannot sing. This was a test balloon to see how fast they can force the church underground.

So, what is next? Will they extend the church-gathering-ban indefinitely? Will they move on to dictating not only when we can meet, when we can sing, but will they also dictate what we can say? Will we finally find ourselves ordered to read a script that will be, in effect, a repudiation of our faith in Christ?

Remember, we are here because of an incurably wrong-headed sense of political correctness. Well, my brothers and sisters, that season is over. The gloves must come off. The righteous must rise up with a single roar—a noise that is unified and unending must rise from the church.

For years we have been told to just sit back and let it happen. We were told that it was ‘all in God’s hands,’ even as we ignored God’s Words. God has chosen to honor prayer. God rewards those who seek to stand in the gap against national evil. Borrowing one last verse from Isaiah, which tells us our great predicament: “Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor…” (Isaiah 59:15,16). God is shocked, and rightly so, that the American church is still wandering, wavering and weakening in the face of an invading enemy.

And yet, there is great hope because God’s army is rising and its numbers are growing at this very hour. Notable Christian leaders are no longer worried about protecting their reputations, but are taking up a new anointing—a nation-saving anointing!

With every atom of my being, I am exhorting you to take action. To those who have no stomach for war, and are oblivious of the fact that we are already at war, please spare me your empty excuses.

The American church must rise up now. We are about to be bound and gagged by a rogue government. Whatever confidence you have in my ministry—whatever level of trust I have earned—must now be put on the line.

Join us in this great struggle! Join a cause so noble and right that it is beyond belief that every Christian in America is not involved. This is the hour. You will never pass this way again.

Speak now, church, or forever hold your peace!

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

Private hell

Vast swathes of the church still bring up his past.  A few who are wearing tinfoil hats call him a devil. Clueless preachers still won’t take a stand. He goes through hell every day protecting the American church and they repay him with indifference.

I am sure that he would make me take down this blog if he could. How I know that, is my business. He doesn’t want the church to know how our ingratitude hurts and baffles him. Obama silenced pastors and yet many pastors still love Obama. Meanwhile, Trump fought for and won free speech in the pulpit—free speech that is being used by many to castigate the very person who restored that right.

But no matter how much I am attacked for supporting him, I will not turn my back on President Trump.  Because of his policies, I have been able to win more souls and preach with greater freedom. The President is standing up for our ministry and he is standing up for you, as well.

You lefties need to save your strength.  Nothing you say is going to change my mind.

Our President found out what the Democrats plan to do to Christians if they win the White House and retake the Senate.  He took the time to gather church leaders and to warn them. That was not an attempt at getting votes but it was a president trying to alert the church to her true enemies.

The Left will go after the church with a vengeance because they think the church helped Trump.   Embarrassingly, that is a false accusation since the church at large really hasn’t done much to help him. Nothing like they could have. Now because of apathy, Trump’s hard won protections can be frittered away.  The President’s description of the Left’s hatred for the church and their plans for us is chilling.

Informed sources say, radicals will be bolder to assault conservatives and Christians.  Social media would tear off its mask and openly persecute the church.

Yeah, I’m angry!  Donald Trump and his family have endured excruciating suffering so that we could do something as simple and easy as voting and challenging other Christians from our pulpits to get out and vote. AND WE STILL CAN’T BRING OURSELVES TO DO SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS THAT?

It is jaw-dropping how oblivious many believers are about this moment in time in which they are living.  Trump is a divine disruption—a merciful pause button to give the church a chance to keep America from going off the cliff of Socialism.  So far, most people in the church have done little to act on this mercy, let alone appreciate it!  But I thank God for my President!

And what has the church done to repay Trump for the silent, nameless agony he suffers daily on our behalf?  Many reward him with apathy, ingratitude, disrespect, slander, and abandonment.  My friend, we are about to pay an incalculable price if we don’t get a right view of this hour.

I am sorry to say this, but Satan has seduced many preachers who head personal empires and oversee independent kingdoms. At such a critical hour as this, they will still not come together in unity to speak to the nation with one voice.  Because they are protecting their own private little empires, they can’t afford to offend their congregation.  Little do they realize this: if the Left gets its way, they will have no empire to defend and no nation to pass on to their children.

You may ask: “Mario, is there any hope?”  Yes, there is! But we need God to apply the electrode paddles to our faintly beating hearts.  We need holy rage, holy boldness.  We need to talk to every believer we know and tell them to wake up and vote and tell others that they need to vote.

I realize that it takes courage to support President Trump and to take a stand for our faith at this hour.  Just remember, right now it may be difficult, but if we lose in November, it will go from hard to impossible.

No one believes in miracles more than I do—and a miracle is exactly what we must have at this hour.  We need a miracle of repentance and boldness, but it all begins with our having a humble appreciation for this man whom God has placed in the White House.

There will never be a more important election than this one.  Your vote will never mean more than it does now.

Vessels of Fire and Glory

Vessels of Fire and Glory is Mario’s newest book. It reached number one on Amazon among all Spirit-filled books. John Kilpatrick who led the Pensacola Revival said this after he read Vessels of Fire and Glory: “As I read the manuscript for Mario Murillo’s new book, Vessels of Fire and Glory, I said to myself, “Finally!” Mario has measured the church and the nation in this season and did not hold anything back. His honesty is like the sun rising inside a dark cave. This release is a paradox—it is sobering and refreshing; it is symptoms and the cure. I believe this revivalist has penned a treatise that should be in the hands of all who lead the work of God.”

 Edgewise

Here is a book about the end times with a totally different approach. It does not focus on how the world will end but on how to live as the curtain comes down on humanity. Powerful, practical, and encouraging.

Critical Mass

Critical Mass is the best-selling book Mario Murillo has ever written. It has been acclaimed as a classic on how to pray for, surrender to, and sustain revival. It is required reading in many colleges and training centers.

DO THESE FIVE THINGS DURING THE SHUTDOWN

You can’t dwell on the frightening images you will see on cable news. You can’t cave in to the hysteria.  There is something extremely important you must take care of.

After you have taken every precaution necessary for remaining safe—after you have settled it in your soul to remain strong in the Lord, wholly trusting in Him, it will be time for you to fight back.

Everything in me tells me these are the most important days you will know in our lifetime. Waste them, and it will be the greatest regret of your life.

Turn your days at home into the most important breakthrough ever. Turn feelings of helplessness into fuel for an amazing outcome. These are days to let God do a shocking new work inside you.

It all begins with the story of Paul being arrested and put in prison. Satan put Paul in prison, intending to inflict massive damage on Christianity. He thought Paul could no longer win souls, and he could not teach the fledgling churches that desperately needed his Apostleship. In fact, he couldn’t do anything…except for one thing.

He began writing. And writing would be the most devastating thing Paul would ever do to Satan’s kingdom. If Paul hadn’t been confined, he might never have had the time to write.  How could he possibly imagine his writings would impact billions?  Paul ended up writing 60% of the New Testament. Selah.

Jailing Paul was the stupidest mistake Satan ever made, besides crucifying Christ. Now let me show you how to make this confinement in your home, his next major mistake.

1. Model faith to your children. Settle it in your soul that God will pay your bills, protect your job and restore what you have lost. Don’t speak fear and doubt in your home! The greatest lesson you will ever model for your children—and the greatest gift you will ever leave to them—is to confess that everything that has been lost will be restored. Because when this is over and God comes through—as you know He will—they will remember and apply these lessons in their lives, whenever they are threatened. The greatest thing your children can watch you do is trust in God.

2. Read the Bible. Dump all the questionable prophetic words and conspiracy theories. Some in the prophetic camp are losing credibility because they foolishly predicted this plague would leave suddenly. Some even set a date—one that will likely prove them wrong.  In the Old Testament such “prophets” would have been stoned. It is this lack of consequence in the prophetic camp that has wreaked havoc and left many unprepared for the storm that is upon us.

The same applies to conspiracies. How much clearer can the Bible be? Isaiah 8:12-13, “Do not say, ‘A conspiracy,’ concerning all that this people call a conspiracy, neither be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled. The Lord of Armies, Him you shall hallow; let Him be your fear, and let Him be your dread.”

It’s all over the internet, and religious broadcasting: ‘There is a worldwide secret society! It’s the devil and his vessels! Nancy Pelosi cooked up coronavirus in a Chinese laboratory!’

Stop needing a “word from God” from people. Stop digging into controversy. In 2 Timothy 2:23 Paul warned, “Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels.”

Instead, read the Bible! Now that you have a lot of time, get the Word of God in you. That is the most powerful protection, and the best way to understand how to weather this storm.

3. Make a list of goals for this down-time, and work hard to meet those goals. Already, you see how many things have stolen your time.  You see how many things that previously cluttered your life, seem unimportant now. Because you are a child of God, nothing of yours that is vital will be stolen. Your job and your business will be brought back to life. Therefore, choose to see this as a kind of paid vacation. Paid by God.

It is a time to make overdue changes, and big and bold plans for the future. To do that, you must get to work. That means no binge-watching Netflix! It means you seek the heart of God and ask Him to show you the goals He wants you to accomplish. Write those goals out, and make the righteous choices that give those goals the very best chance of coming to pass.

Paul wrote much of the New Testament while he was in forced confinement. Great projects will be born—projects that may swallow up the wrong ones you had before.

Lastly make the most important goal list of all: the things you are never are never going back to.

4.Turn prayer into a habit. Inspiration will lead you to pray, but you must decide to form the habit that will keep you praying. The chilling fact is that if you do not pray during this pandemic, you will never pray at all. Let God deliver you from the greatest hindrances to prayer that I know of: impulse prayer and feeling-based prayer.

Right now, forget about how long you pray. Focus on praying each and every day. Behaviorists have shown that it takes doing something 35 times in a row, before it becomes a habit. If you create that habit, and deepen that habit, you will own life’s greatest skill.  James 5:16, “Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

5. Focus on personal repentance, not national repentance. You do it! Don’t wait for others, or even think about other people’s repentance. People have been babbling about national repentance as if it was something other people need to do. We don’t see national repentance happening yet, so don’t wait for it to happen. Repent on your own!

We do not even see widespread repentance among preachers. Have you heard many preachers on social media admit they’ve been wrong?  We are flooded with messages from preachers. But have you heard one major pastor or preacher repent or promise that they will run church differently than they did before? Do you see any preacher who isn’t just chomping at the bit to restart the same old thing? I promise you, unless deep repentance takes place, you will be shocked at how unchanged the American church will be, after all of this. Think about this: How much really changed after 9/11?

Remember, God is judging America as much because of the world, as because of the church.  The carnal church has left us open to this disaster. And yet, without repentance, we have zero reason to believe it won’t go back to exactly the way it was before. In other words, they will have learned nothing from the pandemic. They just don’t get it.

We pray that God will not force the issue of repentance by extending and deepening our national crisis, until America implodes completely. But you have to wonder how they can all say they want this to be over, and yet they still will not repent.

But, we must not set our hope on that. Our hope is founded on the knowledge that we must repent before God—and that is personal repentance. That will lead to the real miracle of mercy. You see, you can stand as a priest between the sins of America, the sins of the church, and God. That is true intercession. There is a righteous core of believers who can turn this plague away. (read Numbers chapter 16)

Remember, God said He would spare Sodom and Gomorrah if there were just 10 righteous people. We are not going to rebuke this away; we are going to repent it away. You have the power to stand between God and this virus.

We must give God what He is seeking. We can’t worry about how many others are interceding, even if there are only a few. The promises of the Lord are never vague! Neither are the conditions to His promises.

2 Chronicles 7:14, “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 heal their land.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Will Turn

While leftists are saying, “Christianity is done in America,”  I say, “At the end of this lockdown, an amazing ingathering of young souls will begin.” To try to prove me wrong, the Left drags out the usual suspects—trends and statistics (including the coronavirus) — in an attempt to validate their argument.

My first response is, “Are you done? Because your arguments just fell like an egg from a tall chicken.” Not only is Christianity not finished in America, but you and all your “woke folk” have inadvertently sown the seeds for the next Christian resurgence. Your ideology has carved out a Jesus-shaped crater in the young souls of our nation.

The wreckage caused by the bankrupt values of the God-haters is everywhere. It was always there, but many didn’t have the time to see it.  The Left has drained the beauty out of childhood, romance, laughter, innocence, friendship, and nature. Those who are stuck at home, now have the time to sit and think about why in the world they ever believed such inane ideas, ideas that have led to such emptiness.

 

Three verses from the Bible have ignited in me. They have to do with outcomes in the midst of impossible crises, such as Luke 21:12-15 where Jesus said, “But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and rulers for My name’s sake. But this will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony. Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will answer; for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.”

The ‘occasion for testimony’ is upon America. We have never seen the nation shut down like this. We have never seen idols toppled in such a sudden and complete way.

While it is very good news for some in the church, it is terrible news for others. God is separating two groups in the church. He will not have carnal voices in this next testimony. He will give voice to chosen ones and grant them astounding defenses of the truth, and power to speak with devastating effectiveness.

He is chasing the hirelings out of His presence. Right now, all over the world believers are headed in vastly opposite directions. Their emotions are opposite. Their viewpoints are opposite. Their destinations are opposite. Some are headed toward a visitation of God. Others are being herded out of the way to make room for a new and glorious work of the Holy Spirit.

Flashy, fleshly preachers were repeatedly warned—but now it is too late. This virus was the deadline. How could they remain carnal and self-important in the face of this crisis? How could they still resist God even in this calamity?

Well known leaders, who at this hour bask in popularity, are totally oblivious to their impending demotion. God is about to sideline them.

On the other hand, totally unknown churches and leaders are about to rise. God will have a witness! It will be pure. It will be free of carnal agendas. It will demonstrate signs and wonders from a holy and loving innocence, and these witnesses will not take the glory.

Remember when I told you this. The coronavirus epidemic will give way to the most explosive opportunity for soul winning in our lifetime. But many believers are going to be left out—receiving in their souls the fruits of their rebellion and the rejection due them for years of resisting the dealings of the Holy Spirit.

Today church buildings lie dormant. Today we wrestle with uncertainty about how long it will last and how bad it will get. But the Holy Spirit bears witness that it will end as suddenly as it came. Many Christians and preachers will emerge with a false sense of security and have no clue as to why they have been demoted.

God has deadlines!  Luke 19:41-42, “Now when Jesus approached and saw the city, He wept over it, saying, “If you had only known on this day, even you, the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes.”

Preachers in America have crossed a deadline, and now God’s next move will be hidden from their eyes.

On the other hand, there are humble servants who are grieving over America. It looks impossible, but this will turn! It looks like the door is closing, but this will turn! It seems that our enemies are too powerful and too great to ever allow a true revival, but this will turn!

Believers who will soon be revealed to be secret weapons, are waiting on God at this very moment. Broken hearts are the birthplace of the impossible. Many don’t know what’s happening to them. They can’t explain the birth pangs.

You know who you are. You are not wasting time fretting with vain imaginations. You are following hard after God. You feel strange rumblings, as deep calls unto deep. What will these Vessels of Fire and Glory look like? They will be irresistible. They will be unstoppable. These vessels will set the stereotype of what a Christian is, on its ear, in America.

What will it be like when it starts to turn and God-starved people meet God-filled people?  Matthew 11:12 says, “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.”

This will turn out for you, as an occasion for testimony!

Today this blog reached a lifetime total of 10 Million views

Today, Mario Murillo’s blog reached a lifetime total of 10 million views. That is huge by any standard, but the real story is much bigger. And the only reason we are telling you about this, is to give God all the glory for what is being accomplished through this humble little blog.
To begin with, no one knows exactly how many have read the blog. Ten million is the number that the left-leaning social media has reported to have read the blog. The real number is doubtless far greater.
We know that certain subjects are routinely and hilariously shadow-banned. Shadow-banning is the act of blocking or partially blocking a user or their content from an online community, such that it will not be readily apparent to the user that they have been banned.
Another form of banning is to throttle the number of views. We don’t know how this is done or who is doing it. The way we notice it is this: We see on Facebook that our blog has been shared 1,000 times, but it shows up on our site as if only 700 people read it. Hilarious!
Only God knows how many have read the blog or would have read it without these restraints.  If you have tried to share this blog, then you know the games that social media plays with it, all the time.
 This blog began under the Obama administration. At that time, it was taboo for preachers to rebuke and declare the Word of God to politicians. In fact, many churches closed their doors to Mario because of his daily exposure of the overt wickedness of the Left, and his continual warnings about the silence of the church.
Fast forward to today and you can see the shift. Preachers are openly declaring righteousness and taking stands against leftist socialism. We believe this blog has played a part in that shift.  Paul said, “And most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much bolder to speak the word without fear” (Philippians 1:14).
From here, we will move on to even greater breakthroughs. This blog will not be tamed and we have certainly seen God unchain it, again and again. His counsel will go forth to the nations!
Register to get the blog sent directly to your email. We expect social media to start blocking it again as the election gets closer.
Finally, we thank God for all of you who have borne the battle with us and helped make this blog the amazing force it is today. By His grace, our blog will continue to be a powerful voice for the kingdom of God, until the day Jesus returns.
THANK YOU!
The staff of Mario Murillo Ministries

He is chasing the hirelings out of His presence. Right now, all over the world believers are headed in vastly opposite directions. Their emotions are opposite. Their viewpoints are opposite. Their destinations are opposite. Some are headed toward a visitation of God. Others are being herded out of the way to make room for a new and glorious work of the Holy Spirit.

Flashy, fleshly preachers were repeatedly warned—but now it is too late. This virus was the deadline. How could they remain carnal and self-important in the face of this crisis? How could they still resist God even in this calamity?

Well known leaders, who at this hour bask in popularity, are totally oblivious to their impending demotion. God is about to sideline them.

On the other hand, totally unknown churches and leaders are about to rise. God will have a witness! It will be pure. It will be free of carnal agendas. It will demonstrate signs and wonders from a holy and loving innocence, and these witnesses will not take the glory.

Remember when I told you this. The coronavirus epidemic will give way to the most explosive opportunity for soul winning in our lifetime. But many believers are going to be left out—receiving in their souls the fruits of their rebellion and the rejection due them for years of resisting the dealings of the Holy Spirit.

Today church buildings lie dormant. Today we wrestle with uncertainty about how long it will last and how bad it will get. But the Holy Spirit bears witness that it will end as suddenly as it came. Many Christians and preachers will emerge with a false sense of security and have no clue as to why they have been demoted.

God has deadlines!  Luke 19:41-42, “Now when Jesus approached and saw the city, He wept over it, saying, “If you had only known on this day, even you, the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes.”

Preachers in America have crossed a deadline, and now God’s next move will be hidden from their eyes.

On the other hand, there are humble servants who are grieving over America. It looks impossible, but this will turn! It looks like the door is closing, but this will turn! It seems that our enemies are too powerful and too great to ever allow a true revival, but this will turn!

Believers who will soon be revealed to be secret weapons, are waiting on God at this very moment. Broken hearts are the birthplace of the impossible. Many don’t know what’s happening to them. They can’t explain the birth pangs.

You know who you are. You are not wasting time fretting with vain imaginations. You are following hard after God. You feel strange rumblings, as deep calls unto deep. What will these Vessels of Fire and Glory look like? They will be irresistible. They will be unstoppable. These vessels will set the stereotype of what a Christian is, on its ear, in America.

What will it be like when it starts to turn and God-starved people meet God-filled people?  Matthew 11:12 says, “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.”

This will turn out for you, as an occasion for testimony!

Private hell

Vast swathes of the church still bring up his past.  A few who are wearing tinfoil hats call him a devil. Clueless preachers still won’t take a stand. He goes through hell every day protecting the American church and they repay him with indifference.

I am sure that he would make me take down this blog if he could. How I know that, is my business. He doesn’t want the church to know how our ingratitude hurts and baffles him. Obama silenced pastors and yet many pastors still love Obama. Meanwhile, Trump fought for and won free speech in the pulpit—free speech that is being used by many to castigate the very person who restored that right.

But no matter how much I am attacked for supporting him, I will not turn my back on President Trump.  Because of his policies, I have been able to win more souls and preach with greater freedom. The President is standing up for our ministry and he is standing up for you, as well.

You lefties need to save your strength.  Nothing you say is going to change my mind.

Our President found out what the Democrats plan to do to Christians if they win the White House and retake the Senate.  He took the time to gather church leaders and to warn them. That was not an attempt at getting votes but it was a president trying to alert the church to her true enemies.

The Left will go after the church with a vengeance because they think the church helped Trump.   Embarrassingly, that is a false accusation since the church at large really hasn’t done much to help him. Nothing like they could have. Now because of apathy, Trump’s hard won protections can be frittered away.  The President’s description of the Left’s hatred for the church and their plans for us is chilling.

Informed sources say, radicals will be bolder to assault conservatives and Christians.  Social media would tear off its mask and openly persecute the church.

Yeah, I’m angry!  Donald Trump and his family have endured excruciating suffering so that we could do something as simple and easy as voting and challenging other Christians from our pulpits to get out and vote. AND WE STILL CAN’T BRING OURSELVES TO DO SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS THAT?

It is jaw-dropping how oblivious many believers are about this moment in time in which they are living.  Trump is a divine disruption—a merciful pause button to give the church a chance to keep America from going off the cliff of Socialism.  So far, most people in the church have done little to act on this mercy, let alone appreciate it!  But I thank God for my President!

And what has the church done to repay Trump for the silent, nameless agony he suffers daily on our behalf?  Many reward him with apathy, ingratitude, disrespect, slander, and abandonment.  My friend, we are about to pay an incalculable price if we don’t get a right view of this hour.

I am sorry to say this, but Satan has seduced many preachers who head personal empires and oversee independent kingdoms. At such a critical hour as this, they will still not come together in unity to speak to the nation with one voice.  Because they are protecting their own private little empires, they can’t afford to offend their congregation.  Little do they realize this: if the Left gets its way, they will have no empire to defend and no nation to pass on to their children.

You may ask: “Mario, is there any hope?”  Yes, there is! But we need God to apply the electrode paddles to our faintly beating hearts.  We need holy rage, holy boldness.  We need to talk to every believer we know and tell them to wake up and vote and tell others that they need to vote.

I realize that it takes courage to support President Trump and to take a stand for our faith at this hour.  Just remember, right now it may be difficult, but if we lose in November, it will go from hard to impossible.

No one believes in miracles more than I do—and a miracle is exactly what we must have at this hour.  We need a miracle of repentance and boldness, but it all begins with our having a humble appreciation for this man whom God has placed in the White House.

There will never be a more important election than this one.  Your vote will never mean more than it does now.

5 THINGS YOU MUST DO DURING THE SHUTDOWN

 You can’t dwell on the frightening images you will see on cable news. You can’t cave in to the hysteria.  There is something extremely important you must take care of.

After you have taken every precaution necessary for remaining safe—after you have settled it in your soul to remain strong in the Lord, wholly trusting in Him, it will be time for you to fight back.

Everything in me tells me these are the most important days you will know in our lifetime. Waste them, and it will be the greatest regret of your life.

Turn your days at home into the most important breakthrough ever. Turn feelings of helplessness into fuel for an amazing outcome. These are days to let God do a shocking new work inside you.

It all begins with the story of Paul being arrested and put in prison. Satan put Paul in prison, intending to inflict massive damage on Christianity. He thought Paul could no longer win souls, and he could not teach the fledgling churches that desperately needed his Apostleship. In fact, he couldn’t do anything…except for one thing.

He began writing. And writing would be the most devastating thing Paul would ever do to Satan’s kingdom. If Paul hadn’t been confined, he might never have had the time to write.  How could he possibly imagine his writings would impact billions?  Paul ended up writing 60% of the New Testament. Selah.

Jailing Paul was the stupidest mistake Satan ever made, besides crucifying Christ. Now let me show you how to make this confinement in your home, his next major mistake.

1. Model faith to your children. Settle it in your soul that God will pay your bills, protect your job and restore what you have lost. Don’t speak fear and doubt in your home! The greatest lesson you will ever model for your children—and the greatest gift you will ever leave to them—is to confess that everything that has been lost will be restored. Because when this is over and God comes through—as you know He will—they will remember and apply these lessons in their lives, whenever they are threatened. The greatest thing your children can watch you do is trust in God.

2. Read the Bible. Dump all the questionable prophetic words and conspiracy theories. Some in the prophetic camp are losing credibility because they foolishly predicted this plague would leave suddenly. Some even set a date—one that will likely prove them wrong.  In the Old Testament such “prophets” would have been stoned. It is this lack of consequence in the prophetic camp that has wreaked havoc and left many unprepared for the storm that is upon us.

The same applies to conspiracies. How much clearer can the Bible be? Isaiah 8:12-13, “Do not say, ‘A conspiracy,’ concerning all that this people call a conspiracy, neither be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled. The Lord of Armies, Him you shall hallow; let Him be your fear, and let Him be your dread.”

It’s all over the internet, and religious broadcasting: ‘There is a worldwide secret society! It’s the devil and his vessels! Nancy Pelosi cooked up coronavirus in a Chinese laboratory!’

Stop needing a “word from God” from people. Stop digging into controversy. In 2 Timothy 2:23 Paul warned, “Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels.”

Instead, read the Bible! Now that you have a lot of time, get the Word of God in you. That is the most powerful protection, and the best way to understand how to weather this storm.

3. Make a list of goals for this down-time, and work hard to meet those goals. Already, you see how many things have stolen your time.  You see how many things that previously cluttered your life, seem unimportant now. Because you are a child of God, nothing of yours that is vital will be stolen. Your job and your business will be brought back to life. Therefore, choose to see this as a kind of paid vacation. Paid by God.

It is a time to make overdue changes, and big and bold plans for the future. To do that, you must get to work. That means no binge-watching Netflix! It means you seek the heart of God and ask Him to show you the goals He wants you to accomplish. Write those goals out, and make the righteous choices that give those goals the very best chance of coming to pass.

Paul wrote much of the New Testament while he was in forced confinement. Great projects will be born—projects that may swallow up the wrong ones you had before.

Lastly make the most important goal list of all: the things you are never are never going back to.

4.Turn prayer into a habit. Inspiration will lead you to pray, but you must decide to form the habit that will keep you praying. The chilling fact is that if you do not pray during this pandemic, you will never pray at all. Let God deliver you from the greatest hindrances to prayer that I know of: impulse prayer and feeling-based prayer.

Right now, forget about how long you pray. Focus on praying each and every day. Behaviorists have shown that it takes doing something 35 times in a row, before it becomes a habit. If you create that habit, and deepen that habit, you will own life’s greatest skill.  James 5:16, “Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

5. Focus on personal repentance, not national repentance. You do it! Don’t wait for others, or even think about other people’s repentance. People have been babbling about national repentance as if it was something other people need to do. We don’t see national repentance happening yet, so don’t wait for it to happen. Repent on your own!

We do not even see widespread repentance among preachers. Have you heard many preachers on social media admit they’ve been wrong?  We are flooded with messages from preachers. But have you heard one major pastor or preacher repent or promise that they will run church differently than they did before? Do you see any preacher who isn’t just chomping at the bit to restart the same old thing? I promise you, unless deep repentance takes place, you will be shocked at how unchanged the American church will be, after all of this. Think about this: How much really changed after 9/11?

Remember, God is judging America as much because of the world, as because of the church.  The carnal church has left us open to this disaster. And yet, without repentance, we have zero reason to believe it won’t go back to exactly the way it was before. In other words, they will have learned nothing from the pandemic. They just don’t get it.

We pray that God will not force the issue of repentance by extending and deepening our national crisis, until America implodes completely. But you have to wonder how they can all say they want this to be over, and yet they still will not repent.

But, we must not set our hope on that. Our hope is founded on the knowledge that we must repent before God—and that is personal repentance. That will lead to the real miracle of mercy. You see, you can stand as a priest between the sins of America, the sins of the church, and God. That is true intercession. There is a righteous core of believers who can turn this plague away. (read Numbers chapter 16)

Remember, God said He would spare Sodom and Gomorrah if there were just 10 righteous people. We are not going to rebuke this away; we are going to repent it away. You have the power to stand between God and this virus.

We must give God what He is seeking. We can’t worry about how many others are interceding, even if there are only a few. The promises of the Lord are never vague! Neither are the conditions to His promises.

2 Chronicles 7:14, “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 heal their land.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

THIS WILL TURN

While leftists are saying, “Christianity is done in America,”  I say, “At the end of this lockdown, an amazing ingathering of young souls will begin.” To try to prove me wrong, the Left drags out the usual suspects—trends and statistics (including the coronavirus) — in an attempt to validate their argument.

My first response is, “Are you done? Because your arguments just fell like an egg from a tall chicken.” Not only is Christianity not finished in America, but you and all your “woke folk” have inadvertently sown the seeds for the next Christian resurgence. Your ideology has carved out a Jesus-shaped crater in the young souls of our nation.

The wreckage caused by the bankrupt values of the God-haters is everywhere. It was always there, but many didn’t have the time to see it.  The Left has drained the beauty out of childhood, romance, laughter, innocence, friendship, and nature. Those who are stuck at home, now have the time to sit and think about why in the world they ever believed such inane ideas, ideas that have led to such emptiness.

Three verses from the Bible have ignited in me. They have to do with outcomes in the midst of impossible crises, such as Luke 21:12-15 where Jesus said, “But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and rulers for My name’s sake. But this will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony. Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will answer; for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.”

The ‘occasion for testimony’ is upon America. We have never seen the nation shut down like this. We have never seen idols toppled in such a sudden and complete way.

While it is very good news for some in the church, it is terrible news for others. God is separating two groups in the church. He will not have carnal voices in this next testimony. He will give voice to chosen ones and grant them astounding defenses of the truth, and power to speak with devastating effectiveness.

He is chasing the hirelings out of His presence. Right now, all over the world believers are headed in vastly opposite directions. Their emotions are opposite. Their viewpoints are opposite. Their destinations are opposite. Some are headed toward a visitation of God. Others are being herded out of the way to make room for a new and glorious work of the Holy Spirit.

PREACHERS WHO LOVE THE SIN BUT HATE THE SINNER

There are preachers who drink to the point of drunkenness, but want nothing to do with evangelism. There are pastors addicted to porn who oppose soul winning. There are preachers cheating on their spouse, who at the same time, refuse to preach the Gospel.

Matthew Henry wrote this, concerning the Pharisees: “They were very strict in avoiding sinners, but not in avoiding sin; none greater zealots than they for the form of godliness, nor greater enemies to the power of it.”

“Hate the sin, but love the sinner,” is a popular quote. These ministers reverse it. They love the sin, but hate the sinner.

It is easy to be outraged by immoral pastors. But the sin of ‘loving sin and hating the sinner’ can be more subtle than booze, porn, or adultery—more subtle, but no less evil.

The Pharisees were not drunks, nor were they sexually immoral, yet, they were guilty of reversing their calling.  They loved power and popularity while disdaining the poor and the lost. They even attacked Christ for being around sinners.

The modern preachers who love adoring crowds and obscene wealth; the trendy pastor who deliberately takes the Bible out of context to advance a seductive message; the celebrity minister who is silent when interviewed by the secular media about hell, the Cross, sexual sin, and the need to repent: are all as guilty as Pharisees, and immoral ministers. They also ‘love the sin, but hate the sinner.’

Hating a sinner means you know your message won’t help them, but you preach it anyway. Hating the lost means you love other things more than seeing men and women delivered from the power of Satan.

Lost souls are going to hell, yet that never occurs to these modern preachers. Their obsession with numbers, prestige, and remaining acceptable by the outside world, has deafened them.

Modern preaching stopped being focused on winning souls, and not winning souls has done more damage than anything else to our nation. If America finally does degrade into a socialist dictatorship—under the wholly corrupt Democrat Party—it will be the fault of the pulpit.

Charles Finney said, “If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the public press lacks moral discrimination, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the world loses its interest in religion, the pulpit is responsible for it. If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it. Let us not ignore this fact, my dear brethren; but let us lay it to heart, and be thoroughly awake to our responsibility in respect to the morals of this nation.”

How evil is it when the very ones who are called to save a nation, instead, advance her destruction because of their vanity? The rampant sin of corrupt preaching is the mastodon in the room. We don’t want to talk about it. It is breaking a taboo to expose it. But, it is a towering iniquity that must be rebuked and rebuked fervently!

Sermons that garner the highest adulation may have been born in the lowest hell. Voices that receive wild acceptance from the world can be Satan’s greatest tool.

The greatest attack on the Body of Christ will not come from without, but from within. Again, Matthew Henry wrote, “Seducers are more dangerous enemies to the church than persecutors.”

False ministers are a trophy of Satan. It only takes a few of them to do horrendous harm. On the other hand, a small number of truly consecrated men and women can do astounding good even at this hour.

The dividing and separating has begun. The coronavirus was the deadline. The Lord has waited patiently, but now He will judge false ministers. Watch, the correction will be swift and fierce.

The voice of God is calling the righteous core to His side. He means to equip them with nation-saving skills.

At the same time, carnal ministers are on social media, vainly trying to save their empire. Even now, they insist on preaching their hollow lies, as if nothing has happened to justify repentance.

But you, vessel of God: ignore them. You have fresh orders. God is seizing you and He is seizing the moment to build you into a mighty vessel of love, truth, and supernatural power. Here is your mandate from the Bible:  “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work” (2 Timothy 2:20-21).

Cleanse yourself from the corrupt ‘Christianity incorporated’ that has bitterly failed America. Embrace robes of righteousness. Submit to the refiner’s fire, and you will come forth as gold.

Instead of using the degrading tactics of human marketing, we must take up the weapons of God!

“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).

That is the picture of a new breed of preacher. Gifts of miracles will tear down demonic strongholds. Words from the Holy Spirit will destroy the most sophisticated arguments against the Gospel of Christ. Messages will be preached. Souls will be saved. Disciples will be created. And America will be delivered. Hallelujah!
