A Christian Convention for these dark times

By Mario Murillo

The odds are that this year you will attend a seminar, a conference or a convention. The question is why are you going?  Is it to receive power, guidance, vital information, or to fellowship with friends and people of like mind?

The times we are living in demand something much deeper.  We are facing a threat to our freedoms, our loved ones, our ministries and our souls like never before. We are at a spiritual point of no return.

You do not have time to sit in sessions that do not deal with your actual life. You seek a new level in God.  You want something that lasts, something that addresses this dark time.

Recently, someone asked me why the early Pentecostal movement spread so fast.  I found that question to be profound and insightful.  The asker was assuming that its growth had slowed down.  And he is correct.  For example, under Reinhardt Bonke, Nigeria became Pentecostal but today it is drowning in radical Islam.

I fear that one reason for this reversal is that the lukewarm mutation created by American Christians spread to the rest of the world.

Spirit-filled Christianity here at home, even as recently as the 1990’s, was focused on winning souls and living pure lives.  Since then, sadly, North American Christians have come to fulfill 2 Timothy 3:5 “having a form of godliness but denying its power.”

Spirit-filled preachers leave out vital doctrines from their sermons and caved in on moral issues such as same-sex marriage and abortion. The occasional mega church does not change the fact that we are losing the battle to our culture and that is the only thing that matters.

Others leaders go to the opposite extreme delving into exotic emotional binges.

Many lament the fact that our movement has polarized into both the frozen and the freaky.  We now have to choose between churches with either no fire or strange fire.

The answer to our early movement spread because it was real.  The fire of God was real.  The miracles were real.  By trying to “improve the Gospel” we made it unreal.  By taking self out of the Gospel preachers can again have great power.

Back to my original point: The odds are that this year you will attend a seminar, a conference or a convention. The question is why are you going?

I am asking you to join me in the mountains receive fresh fire, clear direction and LIVING PROOF

Why is this man still smiling? He has been caught lying at every turn.

Why is this man still smiling?   He has been caught lying at every turn.  He was completely destroyed by Romney in the debate.  He has failed at everything and I mean everything.  What he has done to healthcare is disastrous.  He promised an Arab Spring what he gave us is a nuclear winter of global Islamic jihad.   So why is he still smiling?

But wait!  Now  we have news of his most breathtaking irresponsibility.   He low balled his estimate for the deficit this year by half a trillion dollars!  To underscore how astounding this is the Washington Times said: 

“In May 2009, President Obama released his updated budget estimates, which projected that the federal deficit for fiscal year 2012 would be $557 billion. The Congressional Budget Office now says that the deficit for fiscal year 2012 (which ended on September 30) was about $1.1 trillion — or about twice what Obama said it would be. In other words, Obama’s estimate was off by more than half a trillion dollars.

To put this colossal error into perspective, at the time that Obama was elected, the United States had never once had a deficit as large as Obama’s error would prove to be. Our largest deficit as of November 4, 2008 (the day that Obama beat John McCain) had been $459 billion. Since 2008, we’ve now run up more than $1 trillion in deficit spending for four consecutive years, totaling more than $5 trillion.”

How can anyone bungle the economy that bad?  No one can point to a single benefit from his presidency.  Everyone will feel the damage of his arrogance for years to come.  Yet, there he is undeterred and unmoved.  Why?  Because he believes he is going to win no matter what he says or does.

He knows that he owns the vilest political confederacy ever inflicted on the United States.  His confederacy includes, corrupt unions, a compliant news media, Islamic leaders, foreign money and the most dangerous gang of all:  Americans addicted to government handouts.

 There are good signs however.   The debate broke the hedge around Obama.   According to John Nolte, “In 2008, President Barack Obama won the independent vote over John McCain by a margin of eight points, 52-44. This morning, a new Battleground Poll has Mitt Romney massacring Obama among indies by a whopping 16 points, 51-35.

Then he shows us the how the lap dog can media can still spin this in Obama’s favor. Polls:  “That’s a 24-point swing among independents since 2008, a group that makes up anywhere from a quarter to a third of voters, and yet Battleground still has Obama in the lead 49-48…?

But if I’m skeptical of those bottom-line numbers, our journalist overlords who have chosen to palace guard instead of question will declare me a “truther.”  The Battleground Poll also shows an 13 point enthusiasm gap in Romney’s favor. Only 73% of Obama’s supporters are “extremely likely” to vote, compared to 86% of Romney’s supporters.

Obama owns the vilest political confederacy ever inflicted on the United States.  His confederacy includes, corrupt unions, a compliant news media, Hollywood, Islamic leaders, foreign money and the most dangerous gang of all:  Americans addicted to government handouts.

I am as giddy as you that Obama was finally exposed before 67 million people for the incompetent leader he is but we still need a miracle.   Our nation is not facing a takeover; she was taken over 4 years ago.  We are fighting to get our freedom back. This election can be stolen and manipulated.

It will take the most intense effort ever.  Let every preacher understand that your silence and inaction at this crucial time will be remembered.   Under normal circumstances we should not be political, but these are not normal circumstances.  Obama will drive the church underground and he will turn America into a wasteland that is controlled by global powers.

What do we need to do to stop him? 

  1. Pray for the spirit of deception over the nation to be obliterated in Jesus’ name.
  2. Vote and take someone to vote with you.  Do not be afraid to challenge believers about their vote.  If they are voting for Obama ask them how that is possible.
  3. Talk to your pastor. If he is still on the fence respectfully disagree.  Remember the quote from Bonhoeffer “Silence in the face of evil is evil.  God will not hold us guiltless.  Not to speak is to speak.  Not to act is to act.”  Tell your pastor that you and many others will back him all the way.
  4. Understand that not voting is a vote for Obama.
