SATAN ASKED HIS SENIOR DEVILS FOR A PLAN TO DESTROY AMERICA

The chief devils met with Satan in hell to devise the destruction of the United States. When did they meet? Well, it was some time ago, but not very long ago.

The question on all their leathery lips was, “How can we destroy America?”  After much squealing deliberation, one senior devil spoke up. “Remember, Abraham Lincoln said there was only one way that America could die.” Lincoln said, ‘If it ever reaches us, it must spring up amongst us; it cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.’

“So, you see,” the demon said, “if we want to kill America, we must get them to kill themselves.”

The Devil asked, “What do you recommend?”

Came the answer: “As I see it, there are three nation-killing forces that stand out in history. They, more than anything else, cause people to turn on themselves. They are Racism, Fascism, and Communism. However, we have a problem in America.”

“What is that?” asked Satan.

“Well,” replied the elder demon, “right now, America seems to be rejecting these notions. The young are attacking fascism. Communism is declining, because their President caused their economy to boom—especially among minorities—and this economic boom has damaged the economy and credibility of Communist countries.

“Worse yet, the death of a black man in police custody has awakened a movement against racism. It seems we have our work cut out for us, if we want these three killing-agents to keeping working in America.”

Satan asked, “How can we keep Racism, Fascism, and Communism alive in America?”

 A hush settled over hell, because there seemed to be no answer. Then the silence was broken by another devil—a lying spirit everyone knew. This same devil had once fooled King Ahab into going to war, and it led to Ahab’s death.  The story is found in 1 Kings 22:21-22, “Then a spirit came forward and stood before the Lord, and said, ‘I will persuade him.’ The Lord said to him, ‘In what way?’ So, he said, ‘I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’”

“Can you do it?” Beelzebub asked the lying spirit.  “Of course, I can. I am the master at inciting mobs. Remember, I am also the one who moved the masses—some of whom were even healed by You-Know-Who—to turn against Him. They wanted to spare Him, but when I was through with them, they were yelling, ‘Crucify Him!’ And they wouldn’t stop, until Barabbas was released in His place.”

“I can twist minds until they become the very thing they say they are against,” he boasted.

“How will you do it?” they all asked.

“I will intensify hate until it blinds.  That blind rage will make anti-Fascists start using tactics that are uniquely Fascist. They will attack like Fascists. The will censor like Fascists. They will assault and destroy people in ways that would impress Hitler.  Under my spell, they will, all the while, believe themselves champions of equality, justice, and free speech.”

“I will do the same thing with Racism. I will bury the ideals of Marin Luther King. Remember his dangerous words? ‘I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.’ I will make them ignore character and only look at skin color.

“I will fool the victims of Racism into practicing a new kind of Racism. If hate isn’t enough, I will constantly insinuate that they are ‘victims’, until their definition of equality includes the destruction of another race.”

“What is the greatest threat to your plan?” Satan asked.

“Of course, it is our Supreme Enemy, Almighty God, working through His Church. We all know how they have disrupted our plans in the past. However, our campaign to get them to remain silent about politics and focus on inner blessings has kept them distracted and unprepared for the drastic change we will make in the American Culture. The only marginal threat is a remnant―those who keep warning them and declaring a ‘moral awakening.’

“But wait,” inquired an arch demon, “you’ve said nothing about Communism. How will you make a nation that has been so blessed with prosperity, seek to be totally controlled by government?”

“Well, I have given that one a lot of thought and realized I must create a national disaster. I must bring about the total halt of the economy by locking people down, killing their small businesses, churches, and their hope. I think, maybe, by a virus.”

Satan clapped his hands with glee, saying, “Yes, that will surely succeed! Those who call themselves Christians will be too weak and too cowardly to take a stand against all of your plans!”

Was he right?

WE ARE FIGHTING TO GET IT BACK

“Before there can be a great awakening, there must be a rude awakening.” I wrote that in the beginning of my book, Vessels of Fire and Glory.  First, the rude awakening:

We are already socialist. We are already under a leftist cultural dictatorship. We are not fighting to protect our freedom—we are fighting to get it back. ‘Free America’ left the building years ago. We are under a one-party rule. It’s been years since we were governed by our Constitution.

We are still “the land of the free and the home of the brave,” but we are prisoners of war in an anti-American system.

If, God forbid, Biden were to be elected, it would only change one thing: those who already control us will be able to take off their mask and abandon any pretense that our rights ever mattered.

I figured this out one day when I was flying home on a jet that was packed with members of a teacher’s union. They were gleefully describing the propaganda of transgenderism, the 1619 project, Common Core, and a host of other dynamic changes they were planning for all of our children. It was the devilish confidence that oozed from them that made me realize that a deep and intricate web had already been spun over America.

Their reckless confidence confirmed that they were only a fragment of a long-range strategy that was decades in the making.

How else can you explain Comey and Hillary not yet being in prison? How else can you explain the 20 plus trillion dollar debt? How else can you grasp the fact that Democrats will not so much as acknowledge the existence of Antifa? How else can you understand people such as Adam Schiff, AOC, or Jerry Nadler doing exactly zip for their constituents, so that they are free to create chaos in Congress? How else can you explain the virtual lock that the Deep State has on news and information? What else explains their power to cancel anyone they want? 

How else can you explain the domination of our cities by thugs? How else can you explain the Soviet-style mass closing of churches?

Donald Trump was the only thing they didn’t see coming. He simply was not a part of their plan. I still believe that Hillary had a lock—or, rather, a death grip, on the presidency. There is no human explanation for Trump’s victory. The ancient Romans borrowed a term from Greek drama: deus ex machina: literally, a god from the machine, a term that describes how an unexpected power or event suddenly intervenes to save a seemingly hopeless situation. Trump’s victory was exactly that.

But even Trump had no idea how deep and wide the control of the Left was. He discovered that there were traitors who had been planted everywhere in his administration. The upheavals had nothing to do with Trump’s lack of leadership. They had everything to do with Barack Obama. Obama is the greatest enemy of freedom to exist in our lifetime.

This unchallenged control explains how drag queens suddenly appeared in public libraries all over America, reading to our children. It explains how universities became factories that inculcated Marxist doctrine, warping the young minds of entire generations, filling them with hate and lies. How else could we have the massive factories of human sacrifice known as Planned Parenthood, unless it was put in place and sustained by leftist tyranny, and paid for by your tax dollars?

Now that you’ve had your rude awakening, let me show you why there is hope for a great awakening. Why? Because, once you fully absorb the truth of how controlled we are, there is hope for you to muster the alarm and urgency that befits this hour.

A true grasp of our condition might kick the cowardice out of our pulpits. A true picture of how they control us, might awaken the righteous rage in our prayers and in our dealings with the people around us. You are a Christian Freedom fighter because, without your consent, your rights and the rights of your children have already been set aside.

Reelecting Donald Trump is not a grand finale, it is just the curtain going up on our battle to win our nation back from villains, liars, and devils. Even if Trump wins, we have a long war ahead of us, for there are many crime bosses still left for us to depose.

In 1776 preachers, intellectuals, captains of industry, inventors, and farmers came to an inescapable and unanimous conclusion: The American states must free themselves from British rule or we would never be free. Without that same epiphany, we who live in the second decade of this century cannot hope to wrest our liberty from the devil-driven Left.

So often I am asked, “But Mario what can we do?” You will know exactly what to do when God opens your eyes to the horrors that await your children and grandchildren.

It is time for American believers to be reintroduced to the author of the Bible.  The Jesus who raided the temple, turned over tables, and evicted evil-doers, was no twig-eating hippie, He was consumed with zeal for His Father’s house.

“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.” It is time to put on our armor!

WE’RE ALREADY IN A SOCIALIST DICTATORSHIP

“Before there can be a great awakening, there must be a rude awakening.” I wrote that in the beginning of my book, Vessels of Fire and Glory.  First, the rude awakening:

 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

The War Chest Collection: three powerful books by Mario Murillo for only $27. This amazing offer includes free shipping and a signed copy of Vessels of Fire and Glory. The war chest is an army’s first order for victory. The doors will soon open for tent crusades and we must replenish our war chest. This is a true win-win situation. Not only will you get three excellent books for only $27 but your money will go toward winning souls.

BERNIE SANDERS IS A FULL BLOWN HYPOCRITE AND WORSE

He bitterly and falsely accused Trump of colluding with the Russians. He screamed that no foreign nation should interfere in our elections. But then he won the Nevada caucus, in part, by organizing illegal immigrants to vote for him.

He sees nothing inconsistent about doing the very thing he condemned. Remember how loudly he yelled that letting other nations decide our elections is the greatest threat to our freedom? Remember how emphatically he promised to be transparent?

It was only days ago that the news of the Russians trying to help Sanders came out. He immediately said that no foreign power should interfere in an election. Meanwhile his operative is amassing a foreign army to vote for him:

Meet Chuck Rocha. Rocha officially joined the campaign last year as a senior adviser with a broad purview that includes general strategy, hiring staff and overseeing print ads and merchandise. Rocha also crafts the campaign’s Spanish-language ads on television, radio and the internet. If anyone is responsible for the huge Latino outreach effort that has helped propel Sanders to the front of the Democratic pack, it’s Rocha.

The part that really bites is that Bernie knew Trump was innocent, yet he kept beating the drum of impeachment. Now we see him committing the very crimes he tried to falsely pin on Trump.

Bernie Sanders is a full-blown hypocrite and worse. He behaves like the true Marxist/Communist that he is. He is leading an amoral revolution to win by hook or by crook. If elected, we will truly have an angry tyrant in the White House.

Hear me—Bernie Sanders has no compunction whatsoever in stripping American citizens of their rights. He has no problem overruling your freedom as a citizen of the United States. He is already employing the tactics of a rogue leader by telling whatever lies it takes, and doing whatever dirty tricks he feels are necessary to overturn our way of life.

One of his aides was overheard revealing Bernie’s plans for Trump supporters: Kyle Jurek stated that after the Nazis fell in Germany, the country had to spend a lot of money reeducating people into not being Nazis anymore, and “we are probably going to have to do the same thing here. That’s kind of what Bernie is like, hey, free education for everybody because we’re going to have to teach you not to be an f***ing Nazi.” https://www.redstate.com/brandon_morse/2020/01/14/watch-sanders-campaign-operative-suggests-nazi-trump-supporters-be-sent-to-gulags/

You may just see Bernie as a crazy old man, but there is an army of Marxists who are coming with him, and they have an agenda: “I’m ready to start tearing bricks up and start fighting.. I’ll straight up get armed… I’m ready for the f***ing revolution, bro.. Guillotine the rich.” – Kyle Jurek

The battle lines have been clearly drawn. This is no longer just an election; this is a revolution that can turn ugly as its vile intentions unfold. But wait! There’s more.

Bernie Sanders just buried the Democrat Party. Today, they cease to exist. This is now an unapologetic leftist/socialist movement. You will no longer be voting for Bernie or Trump. You will be voting to determine whether or not America will continue to exist. You will either vote for Bernie Sanders or you will vote for the Declaration of Independence, The Bill of Rights, and the Constitution of the United States.

As a man of God, I must warn you…do not look the other way. Do not merely dismiss this imminent danger or ignore the plain truth. Bernie’s tactics can undermine our very way of life.  It is time for the church to pray fervently that our youth will not to be fooled by this man who is not just a breath-taking hypocrite, but an agent of destruction.

 

 

The next election

Once in a while someone will say something that is not just true…it is SO true.  That someone said, “if you think healthcare is expense now, just wait till it’s free.” I add, just wait until you see that bleeding the rich gets you nowhere. Just wait until you see how a Leftist dictatorship and not a pot of gold is at the end of the Socialist rainbow.

Just wait until you see how everything gets more expensive and scarce—especially freedom. Einstein said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.” If he is right, then wanting to try Socialism again is insanity—because it has never produced a different result.

Los Angeles is not even Socialist yet and they are already demonstrating Leftist insanity. They have 41,000 homeless Americans on their streets, but they have opened their border to the poor of other nations to come join the devastation. Not only that, they give more to the foreign poor than to their own poor.

Socialism is the comfort food of the exhausted and the frightened. Our youth are too tired to try. They are overwhelmed by the ethic that leads to success. In their stupor, it feels attractive to let someone else take care of you.

How can they believe something so implausible is plausible? We could blame the legalization of pot. But the attraction to Socialism is never noble. It is not the lofty and courageous aspiration of a pioneer, an inventor, or a warrior.

In their fatigue it is easy to give in to fantasies of soaking the rich to pay for college, a guaranteed stipend to live on. Esau was too drained and hungry to catch the trick Jacob was playing on him. One warm meal was all it took for him to give away his birthright.

We are in a war and it makes me cringe to think that a nation that survived a Civil War and two World Wars may die at the hands of ‘free stuff’. Yet, there is no doubt that there is a clear and present danger.

Our universities and colleges are incubators of lunacy where Socialism can seem promising.  It is on campus that you find those who are so frightened and feel so victimized that an opposing view is the same as violence.

Consider this example from David Limbaugh:

“If you think the Left hasn’t taken over university life in America, you are probably not paying close enough attention or in denial. I’m not just talking about the liberalism of the professors and the core curriculum, but about all of college life. There are glaring examples of Leftist extremism everywhere you turn, and they’re so loony that even sane liberal parents should be concerned.

In September, a Michigan State University student awoke from his nap to an apparently  unbearable sight, according to The College Fix. His roommate was watching a video of  conservative commentator Ben Shapiro. I can guess what some of you must be thinking as you read this: “I sure am glad my kids were never exposed to such provocations, such obnoxious, inconsiderate and uncaring roommates.”

You are probably also thinking, “But if my kid had been the subject of such a triggering event, I hope he would have had the presence of mind to exercise self-help and extricate himself from the hostile environment.”

In this instance, the innocent victim didn’t react violently. He calmly booted up his own computer and filed a complaint against his roommate with the administration’s bias reporting  system. Kind of makes you well up with vicarious pride, no?  As a parent you will also be gratified to learn that the university dutifully dispatched an investigator to dig into this urgent  matter and to work for a “room change if the claimant would like one.””

A generation who are afraid of their own shadow will welcome Socialism. They will sign over their rights. They will accept a dictatorship.

If ever you prayed for America you need to pray this way: God, break the spell of demons over the minds of Americans who would so easily give away their rights in exchange for a false cure.  God help us to remember that a paycheck is freedom and government handouts are a lethal narcotic. Open hearts to see how this scourge destroys dignity, incentive, and sanity.

Every voter will have to choose between freedom or free stuff. You can’t have both. We had better wake to the reality that we will not die at the hands of North Korea, Russia, or even China, but at the hands of our own children. We will not die from bombs but a national debt that will swallow us whole.

Finally, God hates Socialism for the one thing that it does: It takes charity and love and throws it out in favor of a cold government agency. It takes away the joy of giving and replaces it with obligations and a secret resentment for the poor who gets the money – that has been taken from the rich by force.

Dorothy L. Sayers was an Anglican Theologian and a close friend of C.S. Lewis, said this, “The difference is, with the true church, support (for the poor) is a Gospel concern, with gifts of compassion and care; with government, it is a legal issue, and the money is exacted from the rich in taxes. The sad consequence is that love is thereby eliminated, and replaced by law and civic duty.” Socialism indeed kills love.

What the church should be doing, caring for the poor out of love, is instead now cold and institutional.  What Christianity does is give freely and infuses the poor with the gifts that lift them from poverty: dignity and the miracle of a changed heart.

A Leftist pointed to a man in poverty and remarked to Billy Graham, “Communism will put a new suit on that man.” Billy replied, “But Christ will put a new man in that suit.”

 

If you are finally ready

If you are finally ready

If you are finally ready

By Mario Murillo

“I wish you would give us an answer for America.”  I hear that a lot!   Oh the answer is out there alright, but you have to be ready.  Many believe that they are ready but they are not. The proof that most believers are not ready is the jaw-dropping non reaction to the legalization of gay marriage.  This darkest day in American history– brought on by the most outrageous abuse of power ever by the Supreme Court—was met by tepid, scattered, and disjointed outrage.

To be ready means an unshakable passion for change.  The sorcerer tried to buy from Peter the power to impart the Holy Spirit.  Peter said, “You have neither part nor portion in this matter, for your heart is not right in the sight of God” – Acts 8:21. The daily behavior of millions of Christians and pastors prove they are not ready.

If you are playing games you are not ready.  Seeker churches are playing a marketing game.  They will never be a force for change in our culture; unless of course, someone invents a way to have moral awakening without repentance.

The hyper-emotional churches are not ready either.  They are also playing games.  Fire tunnels and prophetic conferences can easily degenerate a version of Dungeons and Dragons.  Those who chase blessings and “words” are worse than unready, they are immobilized.  They are play-acting at revival.

Do lost souls, national sin, and the loss of our constitution deeply matter to you?   If they do not, God will not enroll you to save America.  How could He?  If you shy away from reality and say silly things like, “I don’t want to know what is going on, it is too depressing,” then you have no part in the solution.

Here are the people who are ready: Pastors who want to influence the culture more than they want a big church are ready.  Pastors who are passionate for the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and cannot live without winning the lost, are ready.   Christians, who are clear that America will soon die without revival, are ready. What is the most urgent sign that you are ready?  The answer is an unambiguous conviction to pursue revival even if no one else joins you.  God is not waiting for the church.  He will start without them.   All He needs is one willing vessel. 2 blog The one willing vessel will unlock awesome power by confessing, “I will do whatever it takes for however long it takes.”  What makes this idea come alive is something called the Stockdale Paradox.  Here is an excerpt from Good to Great written by Jim Collins: The name refers to Admiral Jim Stockdale, who was the highest ranking United States military officer in the “Hanoi Hilton” prisoner-of-war camp during the height of the Vietnam War. Tortured over 20 times during his eight-year imprisonment from 1965 to 1973,

Stockdale lived out the war without any prisoner’s rights, no set release date, and no certainty as to whether he would even survive to see his family again. “Here I am sitting in my warm and comfortable office, looking out over the beautiful Stanford campus on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. I’m getting depressed reading this, and I know the end of the story! I know that he gets out, reunites with his family, becomes a national hero, and gets to spend the later years of his life studying philosophy on this same beautiful campus.

If it feels depressing for me, how on earth did he deal with it when he was actually there and did not know the end of the story?” “I never lost faith in the end of the story,” he said, when I asked him. “I never doubted not only that I would get out, but also that I would prevail in the end and turn the experience into the defining event of my life, which, in retrospect, I would not trade.”

I didn’t say anything for many minutes, and we continued the slow walk toward the faculty club, Stockdale limping and arc-swinging his stiff leg that had never fully recovered from repeated torture. Finally, after about a hundred meters of silence, I asked, “Who didn’t make it out?” “Oh, that’s easy,” he said. “The optimists.” “The optimists? I don’t understand,” I said, now completely confused, given what he’d said a hundred meters earlier. “The optimists. Oh, they were the ones who said, ‘We’re going to be out by Christmas.’ And Christmas would come, and Christmas would go. Then they’d say, ‘We’re going to be out by Easter.’ And Easter would come, and Easter would go. And then Thanksgiving, and then it would be Christmas again. And they died of a broken heart.”

Another long pause, and more walking. Then he turned to me and said, “This is a very important lesson. You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end—which you can never afford to lose—with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.” Blog 3 Why is this Paradox so important to the American church right now?  The answer is the last 7 years.  These are years that shattered Pollyanna doctrines and fluff faith.  We never dreamed it could get this bad this fast. Our version of optimists has left the church.  They have fallen away because of persecution.

The remnant is ready for untold power if it heeds this lesson: Things are bad, really bad; deal with it.  But never, ever lose faith in the arrival of revival.  Embrace the facts no matter how brutal they seem and at the same time believe with all of your might that everything you are doing to see the power of God released on America will be rewarded. When you pray, God will hear.  When you speak out people will listen.  No matter how unpromising your action feels now, keep going because “there is no restraint with God to save by few or to save by many!”  Hallelujah!

THE BEST DAYS OF YOUR LIFE

final-best-days1 copy

Millions have left the church.  This is the reality that Christian leaders do not want to talk about.  However, facts do not go away.  The facts are these: an entire generation has virtually discarded the faith of their parents.

Not only this, but many who were on fire for God and even effective vessels have fallen and have abandoned their faith in Jesus.  A famous Christian singer announces that he is now an atheist.  Is that shocking? The real shock is that the church is not shocked because this kind of recanting of faith is now common.

Maybe you were wounded on the battlefield and did not get up again.  The reasons are as varied as the people themselves are.  It may have been an abusive church.  It may have been an old habit that raged its way back in control.  It may have been a divorce, a false teaching that weakened you, or the gravitational force of unbelief and skepticism of this age.

The most common cause is sudden tragedy.  Something horrendous happened that ran off of your theological map.  You felt that you had no choice but to abandon your faith.  You may be angry with God.  You are not alone.  There are millions in this condition.

The Holy Spirit has burned a message into my soul that I cannot contain. I want this message to get into the hands of as many people as possible.  I have never felt as great an urgency to open my heart to you.  Millions have left the church.

Let me be frank, I believe that God is turning your heart back to Him.  He is doing this on a massive scale.

He has done this before.  Right before the fire fell on Mount Carmel, Elijah prayed these words, “Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that You are the Lord God, and that You have turned their hearts back to You again (1 Kings 18:37).”this generation reaching up

He is doing this not just because He loves you but because He is trying to spare America: “and he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse (Malachi 4:6).”

You are most likely a casualty of the lukewarm American church.  Widespread compromise left her unprotected.  The active ingredient was left out of preaching; that ingredient is surrender.  The power of God to stand against tragedy and evil never kicked in for this very reason.

The Holy Spirit is intensifying His voice to the fallen, the wounded and the forgotten.  While His wooing is loving and hopeful, it does not mask the truth.

In America entire churches are backslidden!  And it is not unprecedented.  Look at these verses: “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me (Revelations 3:15).”

Best days insert

Okay, you may have been caught in the cultural crossfire of the compromised church, the toxic church and even the false church, but why lose your soul to get back at false ministers and sick churches?

This is about you and Jesus.  This is about a destiny that God still keeps for you.  There is one thing that Satan does not want you to remember.  It is the one thing that can break the chains of lies and heartbreak.

What Satan does not want you to think about is this: if you brush away the cobwebs of church politics, hypocrites, and unexpected tragedy you will admit that the best days of your life were when you walked with God in fervent commitment.  Those were the days of peace and joy. 

The best days were the days before anybody and anything came between you and Jesus.  You prayed and sensed that no matter what everything would come out alright.  Even your questions were harnessed by a total trust in the character of God!

You have never felt anything like His presence.  Those were the best days.  Those days can come again.  Jesus is knocking and wants to have dinner with you alone.  “I will sup with him” Jesus promised.

I will admit that I am speaking a divine desperation to come over you.  I want you to break, I want you to yearn to come home to your best life, your only life.  There is an army rising up, made of people that Satan thought he had but is about to lose on a grand scale.  Welcome back to the war!

George W. Bush Bashes Obama on Middle East

In a closed-door meeting with Jewish donors on Saturday night, former President George W. Bush delivered his harshest public criticisms to date against his successor on foreign policy, saying that President Barack Obama is being naïve about Iran and the pending nuclear deal and losing the war against the Islamic State.

One attendee at the Republican Jewish Coalition session, held at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas with owner Sheldon Adelson in attendance, transcribed large portions of Bush’s remarks. The former president, who rarely ever criticizes Obama in public, at first remarked that the idea of re-entering the political arena was something he didn’t want to do. He then proceeded to explain why Obama, in his view, was placing the U.S. in “retreat” around the world. He also said Obama was misreading Iran’s intentions while relaxing sanctions on Tehran too easily.

According to the attendee’s transcription, Bush noted that Iran has a new president, Hassan Rouhani. “He’s smooth,” Bush said. “And you’ve got to ask yourself, is there a new policy or did they just change the spokesman?”

Bush said that Obama’s plan to lift sanctions on Iran with a promise that they could snap back in place at any time was not plausible. He also said the deal would be bad for American national security in the long term: “You think the Middle East is chaotic now? Imagine what it looks like for our grandchildren. That’s how Americans should view the deal.”

Bush then went into a detailed criticism of Obama’s policies in fighting the Islamic State and dealing with the chaos in Iraq. On Obama’s decision to withdraw all U.S. troops in Iraq at the end of 2011, he quoted Senator Lindsey Graham calling it a “strategic blunder.” Bush signed an agreement with the Iraqi government to withdraw those troops, but the idea had been to negotiate a new status of forces agreement to keep U.S. forces there past 2011. The Obama administration tried and failed to negotiate such an agreement.

Bush said he views the rise of the Islamic State as al-Qaeda’s “second act” and that they may have changed the name but that murdering innocents is still the favored tactic. He defended his own administration’s handling of terrorism, noting that the terrorist Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who confessed to killing Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, was captured on his watch: “Just remember the guy who slit Danny Pearl’s throat is in Gitmo, and now they’re doing it on TV.”

Obama promised to degrade and destroy Islamic State’s forces but then didn’t develop a strategy to complete the mission, Bush said. He said that if you have a military goal and you mean it, “you call in your military and say ‘What’s your plan?’ ” He indirectly touted his own decision to surge troops to Iraq in 2007, by saying, “When the plan wasn’t working in Iraq, we changed.”

“In order to be an effective president … when you say something you have to mean it,” he said. “You gotta kill em.”

Bush told several anecdotes about his old friend and rival Russian President Vladimir Putin. Bush recalled that Putin met his dog Barney at the White House and then later, when Bush went to Moscow, Putin showed him his dog and remarked that he was “bigger stronger and faster than Barney.” For Bush, that behavior showed him that Putin didn’t think in “win-win” terms.

Bush also remarked that Putin was rich, divorced his wife and loves power. Putin’s domestic popularity comes from his control of Russian media, according to Bush. “Hell, I’d be popular, too, if I owned NBC news,” he said.

Regarding his brother Jeb’s potential run for the presidency, Bush acknowledged that he was a political liability for Jeb, that the Bush name can be used against him, and that Americans don’t like dynasties. He also said that foreign policy is going to be especially important in the presidential campaign and that the test for Republicans running will be who has got the “courage” to resist isolationist tendencies.

Regarding Hillary Clinton, Bush said it will be crucial how she plays her relationship with the president. She will eventually have to choose between running on the Obama administration’s policies or running against them. If she defends them, she’s admitting failure, he said, but if she doesn’t she’s blaming the president.

For George W. Bush, the remarks in Vegas showed he has little respect for how the current president is running the world. He also revealed that he takes little responsibility for the policies that he put in place that contributed to the current state of affairs.

Kirsten Powers: Christians thrown overboard left to drown by Obama

Kirsten Powers: Christians thrown overboard left to drown by Obama

Obama only mentions Christians to lecture them, rather than defend them from persecution.

What do you call it when 12 men are drowned at sea for praying to Jesus?

Answer: Religious persecution.

Yet, when a throng of Muslims threw a dozen Christians overboard a migrant ship traveling fromLibya to Italy, Prime Minister Matteo Renzi missed the opportunity to label it as such. Standing next to President Obama at their joint news conference Friday, Renzi dismissed it as a one-off event and said, “The problem is not a problem of (a) clash of religions.”

While the prime minister plunged his head into the sand, Italian authorities arrestedand charged the Muslim migrants with “multiple aggravated murder motivated by religious hate,” according to the BBC.

Religious persecution of Christians is rampant worldwide, as Pew has noted, but nowhere is it more prevalent than in the Middle East and Northern Africa, where followers of Jesus are the targets of religious cleansing. Pope Francis has repeatedly decried the persecution and begged the world for help, but it has had little impact. Western leaders — including Obama — will be remembered for their near silence as this human rights tragedy unfolded. The president’s mumblings about the atrocities visited upon Christians (usually extracted after public outcry over his silence) are few and far between. And it will be hard to forget his lecturing of Christians at the National Prayer Breakfast about the centuries-old Crusades while Middle Eastern Christianswere at that moment being harassed, driven from their homes, tortured and murdered for their faith.

A week and a half after Obama’s National Prayer Breakfast speech, 21 Coptic Christians were beheaded for being “people of the cross.” Seven of the victims were former students of my friend and hero “Mama” Maggie Gobran, known as the “Mother Theresa of Cairo” for her work with the poorest of the poor. She told me these dear men grew up in rural Upper Egypt and had gone to Libya seeking work to support their families. They died with dignity as they called out to their God, while the cowardly murderers masked their faces.

Monday, there was more horrifying news: ISIL terrorists released a video purporting to show more religiously motivated killing. According to CNN, before beheading and shooting two groups of Christians in Libya, a speaker said, “The Islamic State has offered the Christian community (the opportunity to convert to Islam or pay a tax for being Christian) many times and set a deadline for this, but the Christians never cooperated.”

So they kill them.

Indeed, let’s talk more about the Crusades.
