BACKFIRE

Emboldened by overstated victories, the Democrat party will persecute the church.  I believe we’ll see it this week. The mood—the one that pleases people when Christians are harassed and blamed, is upon us.  I am warning you it’s about to spike, and the mindless ferocity of it will surprise you.

Already, the University of California at Berkeley is trying to squash—like a bug—the only Christian on the Student Senate.  The left believes they have permission to wreak havoc on the church because of the victories in the midterm elections.

A moment like this is recorded in the Book of Acts: Acts 12:1-3, “Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. 2 Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3 And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter also.”

As I prayed, I experienced colliding emotions of dread and excitement.  The Holy Spirit made it clear that persecution against Christians is going to spike in the United States in the next few months.  He also made it clear that this would touch off a towering flow of miracles of healing.

Satan wants America destroyed.   It is the grand prize.  With America gone, the devil can unleash worldwide devastation.   But the global tyranny that he craves cannot happen until the American firewall is removed.

He also knows that he can only destroy America from within.  Somehow, he must pit us against each other. 

The only deterrent to civil war at this point is Christianity.  Notice that I do not say the church, I say Christianity.  The church is sidelined by equal parts division and denial.  The Christianity seeping out despite religion is the only thing protecting us.

The devil’s weapon of choice is hate.  He must foment hate.  Today, that hate is coming from the very people claiming to be fighting hate: secular progressives, and social justice warriors.  You have seen how the things that were once loving, moral and trustworthy, including marriage, manhood, military service, freedom of speech, witnessing, the Bible and, yes, freedom itself, are now hateful.

 

God has been lovingly warning the American Church.  He has repeatedly ordered the church to stand as one against immorality, but she has flatly refused.  God now reserves the right to use persecution to wake up the church and spare the nation.

Is there any good news in this?  There is much good news, but only for a certain group.  The core of Christians who refuse to side with the compromised church, and who are seeking Jesus, will be protected and used mightily.  Persecution will backfire!

The boomerang effect is seen in ancient Israel.  Exodus 1:12 says “But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites.”

After Herod arrested Peter, an angel appeared and brought him out.  This miracle ignited the church.  I am telling you what the Holy Spirit has told me.  Every vessel that seeks God right now will receive greater power and greater miracles.

Call it legend, call me crazy, but I know that this wave of persecution is here.  We can turn it all around.  We can regain lost ground.  Those who disobey God cannot escape this misery and those who obey God will granted special grace and increased supernatural power.

Paul wrote to a worried Philippian church to tell them about the shock outcome of his imprisonment.  It serves as a promise to us of what is about to happen as a result of persecution in America.

Philippians 1:12 “And I want you to know this, dear brothers: Everything that has happened to me here has been a great boost in getting out the Good News concerning Christ. 13 For everyone around here, including all the soldiers over at the barracks, knows that I am in chains simply because I am a Christian. 14 And because of my imprisonment, many of the Christians here seem to have lost their fear of chains! Somehow my patience has encouraged them, and they have become more and more bold in telling others about Christ.”

Writing about the book of Acts Church Matthew Henry said this:  “The persecution that was designed to extirpate the church was by the overruling providence of God made an occasion of the enlargement of it. Christ had said, I am come to send fire on the earth; and they thought, by scattering those who were kindled with that fire, to have put it out, but instead of this they did but help to spread it.” Amen!

 

A WAVE OF PERSECUTION IS UPON US BUT IT WILL BACKFIRE

 

The mood—the one that pleases people when Christians are harassed and blamed, is upon us.  I am warning you it’s about to spike, and the mindless ferocity of it will surprise you.

I was led to a specific moment like this recorded in the Book of Acts: Acts 12:1-3, “Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. 2 Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3 And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter also.”

TRUMP GOES THROUGH HELL FOR THE CHURCH

No matter how much I am attacked,  I will not turn my back on Trump.  Because of his policies I have been able to win more souls, and preach with greater freedom.   He is standing up for our ministry and he is standing up for you too.

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

Now I have a burning question for the church…Have you seen the chilling video of Lance Wallnau relating the prophetic warning Trump gave to Evangelical leaders?   Our president found out what the Democrats plan to do to Christians if they retake the House and Senate.  He took the time to gather church leaders and warn them.

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

Think of it!  Everything Trump has done for the rights of Christians—the rights Obama removed—are threatened again.  On top of that, the most oppressive and tedious investigations ever with halt the engines of our economy.   Mueller’s investigation would look like a picnic compared to the tidal wave of investigations Democrats will start.

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 mad.

It is maddening!  The excruciating suffering Trump and his family faced so we could do something so simple and easy: to vote and challenge other Christians to vote from our pulpits… AND WE COULDN’T EVEN BRING OURSELVES TO DO THAT?

It is jaw-dropping how oblivious many believers are about the moment they are living.  Trump is a divine disruption–a merciful pause button to give the church a chance to keep America from going off a socialistic cliff.  So far, most 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 his nameless, daily agony on our behalf?  Many reward him with apathy, ingratitude 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 lead empires and independent kingdoms. They—at this hour—will not unify to speak to the nation as one voice.  They can’t afford to offend for the sake of their empires.  Little do they know that if the Left gets its way they’ll have no empire left to defend.

Mario is there any hope?  Yes, but we need God put electrode paddles to our faintly beating hearts.  We need holy rage, holy boldness.  We need to talk to every believer we know and wake them up to vote and to tell others to vote.

I realize that it takes courage to support Trump and our faith at this hour.  Just remember, right now it is hard but if we lose in November it will go from hard to impossible.

No one believes in miracles more than I—and that’s just what we must have at this hour.  We need a miracle of repentance, boldness…but it all begins with humble appreciation that we have this man in the White House.

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

THE WINNING ARGUMENT

Just for the moment.  Forget about Trump.  Forget about the Wall.  Forget about the “Caravan.”  The case to make against the Democratic Party to the American public is simple.  It begins with simple questions.

Who has fights to stop prayer in schools?  Who has attacked Christmas?  Who tried to ban Bibles?  Who booed God at their convention?  Who sued to put Christian bakers out of business?  Who sued to force Nuns to violate their beliefs?  Who wants certain Christian doctrine banned as hate speech?  Who is constantly trying to get rid of Crosses and Manger scenes?  Who said the church must evolve?  Who said that religious beliefs must be changed?  Who worked to ban Christian clubs on campus?

The winning argument is plain and simple: The Democratic Party is anti-Christian. 

John Hawkins said, “The GOP often foolishly retreats from social issues. This is a huge mistake in an era when 76% of the country is Christian and most liberals find sincere Christian beliefs to be repellent. We don’t have to preach at anyone, wag our fingers, or turn into legions of Ned Flanders, but we shouldn’t be afraid to talk about our Christian beliefs, stick up for Christians who are under attack, and hammer the Left for its anti-Christian bigotry. Conservatism is a pro-Christian ideology and liberalism is an anti-Christian ideology. We should never be afraid to drive that point home.”

And where do the Democrats turn to get outside help?  Witchcraft.  They did not hold a prayer vigil against Judge Kavanaugh—they had witches conjure up a spell.  I don’t think they believe in witchcraft.  They chose witchcraft for no other reason than it is anti-Christian. And for good measure the witches gave a big donation to Planned Parenthood.  Human sacrifice has always been a part of witchcraft.

Why are we afraid to zero in on this greatest of all arguments against Democrats?  Are we more concerned about appearing unloving than we are about our religious freedom being destroyed?

This mid-term election is solely about the kind of nation you want your family to live in.  Do you want freedom of religion or government openly hostile to your faith?

You need to wake up brother and sister and use our best argument.   Your commitment to Christ should come before your race and gender.  This is not a left-right or conservative-liberal debate.  This is totally a case of…are you pro or anti Christian?   We didn’t make it that way, they did.

This Sunday is the last sermon before the midterms.  Every pulpit should make this point: Your vote can’t get any more moral.  We can’t make a better argument.  The Democrats are at war with Christianity.

What are you hearing from the pulpit of your church?

Are you being rallied to vote?  Are you being armed with Scriptural precepts that show your undeniable duty in this hour?

The day when vessels of God could leave politicians alone is gone.  The preacher who rebukes politicians today is not partisan or political—they are a normal servant of God.

That’s a bitter pill to swallow—but swallow it me must.   The fictional detective Sherlock Holmes said, “How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?”  What is left to you when you remove the mask of the Democratic Party? The truth about them is undeniable.

Here is the truth about the Democratic Party:

-The Democratic Party will work to force Christianity to change.  Hillary Clinton said, “religious beliefs have to be changed.”  CA Democratic Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi said, “the church must evolve.” They are the ones who let slip the goal of the Democratic Party.

-The flood of illegal immigrants you see—the open borders you see—the relentless effort to change the face of America you see is not by accident.  It is by design.  The sole intention of this invasion—for that’s what it is—is to keep an elite cadre of leftists in power.   These elitists are in education, entertainment, media, technology and politics.

-They are the one who espoused violence.  Faulty explosive devices sent to Liberal leaders?  They blame Trump?    Now they are calling for conservatives to stop violence?  They have zero evidence that anyone except one deranged lunatic anything to do with those bombs.

Eric Holder said to kick them.  Hillary said you can’t be civil.  Maxine Waters called for mobs to form and harass them.  Joe Biden and Robert Di Nero want fist fights with Trump. The New York Times runs a fantasy piece about assassinating Trump. Madonna said she wanted to blow up the White House.

I ask you…are conservatives rioting, burning, or shooting Democratic politicians?  Do you see widespread civil unrest fomenting among Trump supporters?  Who holds up bloody heads of Trump? Who cheer at plays that depict the assassination of Trump?

The call to tone down the rhetoric on both sides sounds rational but it is wholly misguided unless the left admits they are mostly responsible.  Physical violence is almost the exclusive domain of the left.  Trump supporters may yell and scream but examples of violence are rare compared to the left.  How rich is it that George Soros is now condemning violence and hate after he has funded it for years?

But the real issue is that leaders in the Democratic Party will not call off their dogs.  They are okay with riots.   This is but a taste of the tactics they will employ not only on the street but in government.  If they resort to riots, burning down buildings, bullying, censorship, and intimidation now…what will they do if they regain power?

No pastor—no matter how famous or wise—has been able to offer even a weak argument to defend their silence.  Instead, even when confronted with all the facts—knowing they are without excuse—preachers simply drop the God Card: “God told me to keep quiet.”  Well, no He didn’t.

Some say they don’t want to lose their tax exemption.  What good will your tax exemption be when your congregation is driven underground?

When unapologetic evil emanates from the Democratic Party you vote against them.  When soul-withering incompetence threatens to rule the House and Senate you stop it.

This Sunday every pulpit in America must direct their congregation to vote and how to vote against the destruction of America—for that is exactly what you will be doing.

This is it!  You will have only one chance in your life to stop this madness.  So, I ask you one last time…what is your church saying about this election?

You don’t hand matches to an arsonist

The victory of Brett Kavanaugh faded quickly in my spirit.  It was something President Trump asked the crowd in Kansas.  “If they act this way trying to get power what do you think they will be like if they get the power?”

Then he said, “you don’t hand matches to an arsonist.”

Diane Feinstein will slander an innocent man—hold back that slander till it has the most sadistic impact on a godly family—just to win an election.  If she does that now, what would she do with a Senate majority?

The left believes men should be guilty until proven guilty.  They want carte blanche to investigate until the lies suffocate the truth. 

And what if Kavanaugh had quit?  What if that towering miscarriage of justice had carried the day? The war on men would have reached critical mass.

As it stands, all we have won is a battle.  The war goes on.  We will still see this ideology canonized in the courts if the left gains control.

Oh, they won’t go after every man…just your man.  They won’t investigate Bill Clinton for rape or Keith Ellison for beating a woman senseless.  They only want to stop men who oppose their agenda.  What do you think they’d do to your Christian, conservative son, brother, husband, father, if they get in the way?

What about the street thugs of the left?  With a Democratic majority they will be emboldened to expand and deepen their disruption and violence.  The streets can become their reign of terror, destroying property and reputations.  They will operate with impunity shielded by a Congress sympathetic to their cause.

Whatever restraint Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and all the social media platforms are showing now will go away.  Instead of shadow banning there will just be banning.

Hollywood, and all the media voices of the left would churn out complete propaganda, drowning out all opposing views.  Look at this tweet:

The writer of this vile tweet is a writer on the Stephen Colbert show, and has nearly 40,000 followers on Twitter. As the Senate confirmation vote was gearing up, she wanted everyone to know that “whatever happens” she is “just” glad she ruined a man’s life. Never mind if he was innocent, never mind any of the facts or corroborations or shifting stories of his accuser. The important thing to her was ruining his life. That was what mattered.

We have entered a moment unlike any in history.  They only time it reminds me of is in Luke 4: 13 “When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time.”

The left is a bloodied beast regrouping.  Their vile behavior against Kavanaugh was just a dress rehearsal. Starting today, they will unleash deceit, intimidation and yes, violence.  Dark money will fuel their dirty commercials.  A tsunami of leftist sewage is about to crash into the nation.

Mario, I don’t believe you, this can’t happen.  Yeah and did you ever think something like these depraved confirmation hearings could happen?

The stakes for November are beyond calculation.  I have never seen, nor will I ever see a closer tie between my faith and my vote.  They have become virtually inseparable.  One is now an extension of the other.  Every believer must storm heaven in prayer!  Every believer must go and vote.  If your pastor is not rallying you to pray and vote why are you still listening to them?

You don’t hand matches to an arsonist.  However, if you think you are spiritual by not voting you need to realize this:  while you aren’t handing an arsonist matches, you are leaving them out on the table.

I MUST TELL YOU NO MATTER WHAT THE COST

When I began this blog, I could not see how it would succeed.  It was so far ahead of the curb it terrified me.  Total readership reached 4 million today.

My nerves were frazzled the first time I sat down to write something called a blog.  I argued with God.  I could not see how it would succeed. I knew there would be a firestorm over the things I was compelled to say.  I was so right about the firestorm.

Now millions read the blog in virtually every nation of the world.  Every day we are amazed at the impact of this little blog.

“Let me be the first to tell you”…that seems to be the theme of this little blog that could.

Check out this excerpt from the first time we spoke out years ago:

“The America we once knew has been taken away.  It happened overnight.   Because America has changed ministries must change the way that they relate to this new nation.”  Today, that is a common theme but when I first said it friends backed off, doors closed, and we were told that youth would abandon our meetings.  Instead, just the opposite happened–I mean about the youth.

When pastors were scared to death to speak…we did.  Now we see many starting to confront these issues.  In part, I know God used this blog to wake them up.  Paul said, “and most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.”  -Philippians 1: 14

This blog was one of the first to declare this among Spirit-filled people:  “Government has become our national God and that race now means more to some Christians than their Bible beliefs.   This new God is waging an incremental war on the Constitution.  The New York Times once referred to  the U.S. Constitution an evil document that we should give up on.”

This blog was one of the first to attack Obamacare as an assault on freedom of religion.  “It forces Christian Institutions to violate their religious convictions.  Cardinal Dolan the spiritual leader of the Archdiocese of New York calls it “an unwarranted, unprecedented radical intrusion.  The Obama White House met with Cardinal Dolan and several Bishops met with the White House to talk.   He said he was told to shut up and accept the mandate.'”

charade

This blog was among the first to preach it is time for the people of God to speak out on the danger of gun control.  5 years before David Hogg we said, “Mass shootings have become the excuse to take away our guns.  Obama wants absolute power. Mahatma Gandhi the great pacifist said, ‘Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.’  Thomas Jefferson and James Madison believed that the greatest threat to liberty was not foreign invasion or domestic unrest but rather a standing army and a militarized police force that had no fear of inflicting tyranny upon the people.”‘

Then we had the audacity to attack Hollywood when many celebrity pastors were schmoozing with Hollywood.  “If Government is our new God, Hollywood celebrities are our new pastors. Ben Stein asked, ‘Where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren’t allowed to worship God?  There are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.’ Hollywood is the most powerful propaganda machine in history and it has declared war on our faith.”  

Then we said, “Ministries must change how they relate to America.”  1 Samuel 10: 6 Says, “Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. 7 And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.

Then we took a position so radical we couldn’t see church pastors in the rear view mirror:

“Here is what I believe the occasion demands: The Holy Spirit is saying we can publicly oppose government tyranny while still maintaining a loving witness.  Acts 16: 37 But Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out.”  Paul had just led a jailer and several prisoners to Christ and now he turns around and exposes politicians who have broken the Roman Bill of Rights.”

“We must accept the fact that there is a new generation that has no Christian orientation. “And also all that generation was gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, who knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel.” Judges 2:10  “We must lay a new foundation of faith in America.  We must preach the central doctrines of our faith. The Bible needs to set fire to our sermons.”

bible fire

Then we said, “The big question now is what does the church do if Trump is president?  In the next few blogs I will open my heart to you about the radical steps the church must take to seize this greatest soul winning opportunity in our lifetime.  Once again, we must change the way we relate to government.  I know we need fresh fire.  Prayer, repentance and waiting for new orders are the keys for the American church…”

Now we reached 4 million readers and everyday our audience expands.  Here’s my promise…no success will tame this blog. We will still be the first to tell you many things…including the fact that censorship is going to intensify so you should register to get this blog.
