AMERICAN CHRISTIANS WHO CANNOT BELIEVE IN A RIGGED ELECTION

Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube truly believe you are stupid. They love to say they are neutral, but they are so biased that they are not fooling anyone but themselves.

When someone writes a blog like the one you are reading now, all three of these Big Tech sites love to add a disclaimer under each and every post that even mentions that voter fraud is a possibility. You will see one under this post. Here is what one disclaimer says: “Robust safeguards help ensure the integrity of elections and results.” Here is another example:

Hilarious!

Many American Christians think that voter fraud is a myth, and that this election was not rigged. They are complying with the notion that Biden won the election. What is disturbing is the reason they have rejected the compelling evidence of fraud. They reject it because the idea of such evil is too alarming. They simply don’t want it to be real, therefore, it must not be. Furthermore, they are terrified of being outcasts in this culture—something that may soon be unavoidable because of Christ, not Trump.

Now, let’s look at why I believe there is no way Biden won.

My thanks to J.B. Shurk, who sarcastically calls Biden’s victory a ‘miracle’ and shows us why there has never been an election that is further from “robust safeguards,” “trustworthiness” and “integrity.” Consider the following information:

1. 80 Million Votes for a Washington politician who has been in office for half a century. No incumbent President in nearly a century and a half has gained votes in a re-election campaign and still lost. President Trump gained more than ten million votes since his 2016 victory, but Biden overcame President Trump’s record support among minority voters and shattered Barack Obama’s own popular vote totals by 15 million votes.

Biden gathered a record number of votes even after consistently trailing President Trump in measures of voter enthusiasm. Biden motivated voters who had been unenthusiastic about his campaign, to vote for him―in record numbers.

2. Winning Despite Losing Most Bellwether Counties

Biden would be the first President in 60 years to lose the States of Ohio and Florida on his way to election. For a century, these States have consistently predicted the national outcome; despite national polling giving Biden a lead in both States―he lost Ohio by eight points and Florida by more than three.

Biden lost these key States by notable margins, yet allegedly still won the national election.

Biden appears to be on his way to winning the White House after having lost almost every historic bellwether county across the country. The Wall Street Journal and The Epoch Times independently analyzed the results of 19 counties around the United States that have nearly perfect presidential voting records over the last 40 years. President Trump won every single bellwether county, except Clallam County in Washington State.

Whereas the former VP picked up Clallam by about three points, President Trump’s margin of victory in the other 18 counties averaged over 16 points. In a larger list of 58 bellwether counties that have correctly picked the President since 2000, Trump won 51 of them by an average of 15 points, while the other seven went to Biden by around four points. Bellwether counties overwhelmingly chose President Trump, yet Biden still found a path to victory.

3. Biden Trailed Clinton Except in a Select Few Cities

Pollsters noted a statistical oddity from 2020’s election returns: “Biden underperformed Hillary Clinton in every major metro area around the country, save for Milwaukee, Detroit, Atlanta and Philadelphia.” Noting that in those “big cities in swing States run by Democrats…the vote even exceeded the number of registered voters.”

In the States that mattered most, so many mail-in ballots poured in for Biden from the largest cities that he put up record-breaking numbers and overturned State totals that looked like comfortable leads for President Trump.

4. Biden Won Despite Democrat Losses Everywhere Else

If Biden were to win, it would be in spite of the fact that Donald Trump was the only incumbent President in U.S. history to lose his re-election while his own party gained seats in the House of Representatives.

In 2020, The Cook Political Report and The New York Times rated 27 House seats as toss-ups going into Election Day. Right now, Republicans appear to have won all 27. Democrats failed to flip a single state house chamber, while Republicans flipped both the House and Senate in New Hampshire and expanded their dominance of State legislatures across the country. Somehow, Biden beat the man who lifted all other Republicans to victory.

5. Biden Overcame Trump’s Commanding Primary Vote

Primary vote totals are usually very accurate in predicting general election winners.

First, no incumbent who has received 75 percent of the total primary vote has lost re-election.

Second, President Trump received 94 percent of the primary vote, which is the fourth highest of all time (higher than Dwight Eisenhower, Nixon, Clinton, or Obama). In fact, Trump is only one of five incumbents since 1912 to receive more than 90 percent of the primary vote.

Third, Trump set a record for most primary votes received by an incumbent when more than 18 million people turned out for him in 2020 (the previous record, held by Bill Clinton, was half that number).

Joe Biden reportedly has prevailed in the general election, despite Trump’s historic support in the primaries. This means Biden has achieved the impossible.

“Why are no journalists reporting these amazing feats?” ―J.B. Shurk

American Christians need to separate themselves from their distaste for Trump and look at reality. American freedom, and therefore religious freedom, will go away permanently if the Biden-Harris ticket succeeds in stealing this election by fraud.

DEMOCRATS HAVE NO INTENTION OF EVER REOPENING CHURCHES

 

If you believe the day is coming when Democrats will officially allow churches to reopen, you are fooling yourself.  That day is never going to come.  If your church is in a city or state governed by Democrats, they will never, ever declare that is okay for churches to reopen.

The only way churches will reopen is if they do it on their own.  At this moment Democrats are looking for a way to keep churches closed that goes beyond The China Virus. 

If you are counting on the day when your Democrat mayor or governor will tell you that you are free to have open church services wake up! That day is never coming. 

The lock down had little or nothing to do with the China Virus, it just provided the excuse they have been wanting for a long time. They wanted to see what pastors would do if they were ordered to shut down. They sure found out!  Their illegal order worked beyond their fondest dreams. Christian leader after Christian leader rolled over like a puppy who hears a newspaper being rolled up, with extraordinarily little resistance.

 

This was also a way to bankrupt churches—churches that were too weak to survive months of being closed. And they were right again, because many of these churches did not survive. They are gone forever.

The only way that churches will ever reopen is for them to take matters into their own hands and test the criminal behavior of Democrat leaders. Though they were extremely clear about when we needed to close, they will be vague at best and totally silent at worst.

Here are three reasons why the Democrats will never reopen the churches.

1. The closure had more to do with our Christianity than with the virus. The proof is their long history of trying to shut down the church. After the virus, they will try something else.

The most glaring example of their past efforts to persecute Christianity was California Assembly Bill 2943.  This is no exaggeration.  It is not the overreaction of an overly emotional preacher.  I challenge you to come up with a different conclusion than I have concerning this proposed law that would have passed had it not been stopped at the last minute:

This bill would have declared all forms of sexual orientation change efforts, or SOCE (sometimes referred to as “conversion therapy”) to be a form of “consumer fraud” if performed for a fee. Such counseling or therapy is designed to assist people who experience unwanted same-sex attractions to achieve their own self-chosen goal of overcoming those attractions or abstaining from same-sex conduct.

In fact, because the “consumer fraud” statute applies to any sale of “goods or services,” AB 2943 could potentially have banned not just therapy but even the sale of books. And because “sexual orientation change” was defined to include changes in “behaviors” (not just attractions), the sale of any book promoting a Christian sexual ethic could have been banned—potentially including the Bible itself.

https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/ab-2943-therapy-ban-that-attacked-freedom-of-speech-and-religion-dies-in-california-family-research-council-says-300705551.html

No exchange of money can be allowed for a book that suggests recovery from same sex attraction or gender dysphoria?  No conference can do so either?  Oh wait, the Bible does that.  And oh, yeah, a Bible Conference will do that.

This frontal assault on the Christian faith is a giant step toward outlawing Gospel preaching as hate speech.  What will stop them from removing tax exemptions?  What will stop them from removing the right to assemble?  What will stop them from shutting down any group that does not fall in line with their gender values?

2. They are ignoring the decisions of federal judges who have ordered them to reopen churches. Does that tell you anything? The Justice Department has opened investigations threatening Mayors and Governors. Has that had any impact? Of course not. The Democrats know what they are doing is illegal. If they are already flouting the law to force churches to stay closed, what makes you think they will ever give in and announce our reopening?

  1. They are only buying time to come up with the next reason to ban churches. This was a dress rehearsal. Think about how nutty Nancy Pelosi is to suggest a second impeachment of Trump because he nominated Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court? What makes you think they will not invent some absurd reason to close churches again?

Here is the conclusion of this matter. The real enemy is fear. I call it Covid-20. It is the virus that makes people afraid to go back to their church. It is the fear that makes a pastor reluctant to open en masse to force Democrat governors to face the futility of keeping us closed.

If the church in America is ever to reopen, she must do it on her own.

If ever we needed to heed to the example given by Peter in Acts 5:28-29. When the Apostles were ordered by the governing officials in Jerusalem to shut down: “saying, “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this Name? And look, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man’s blood on us!” But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.” 

After being warned, the Church in the 1st century did the exact opposite. They rose up and became even more bold to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, accompanied by signs and wonders. And that is what the Church in the 21st century must do, during this hour of persecution!

THE ONLY THING THAT WILL MATTER TO YOU WHEN THIS IS OVER.

You are getting conflicting messages. People tell you Trump lost and the Christian thing to do is to graciously accept Biden. Others say you should never do that.

Some Pastors are flipflopping about Trump. Some prophets who prophesied Trump’s victory are now repenting and saying that they were wrong. Still others who prophesied Trump’s victory, then recanted and now are recanting their recant.

No wonder a fog has fallen on the minds of millions of Christians who have no idea what to believe and do about this election. And though the situation seems complicated, knowing what to believe and do is quite simple

 Just ask yourself, “What will be my greatest regret when this is over? What will haunt me most in the future about my actions today?” That is when it will be blazingly clear to you.

The answer to what you will regret the most is found in the story of the three boys and the fiery furnace.

“Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up” (Daniel 3: 16-18).

Imagine the pressure on these three young men. A nation stood against them. The most powerful person in the world was enraged and more than willing to burn them alive. Wouldn’t it be best to pretend to worship, in order to avoid such a gruesome death?

No, that would be the worst choice they could make, because after it was all over, only one thing would matter: They did not make room for a miracle and they had denied their God by worshipping an idol.

There is a lot of confusion right now, but one thing is undeniable: Joe Biden is the idol they want us to worship. Was there voter fraud? No matter how loud the fake news media screams otherwise, the truth is, yes there was, and on a massive scale.

Listen to Kayleigh McEnany, “There is only one party in America trying to keep observers out of the count room, and that party, my friends, is the Democrat Party,” she said, adding, “You don’t oppose an audit of the vote because you want an accurate count…you take these positions because you are welcoming fraud, and you are welcoming illegal voting.” This is such a potent argument that Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto, was forced to cut her off in order to protect the lie.

I am sure that the devil has told you all about the ridicule and rejection you will endure for standing with Trump. But will any of that matter when this is over? The only thing that will matter is your regret that you disqualified yourself from a miracle and bowed before an idol.

In 2000, it took 36 days, but the truth finally came out. It will come out again, in 2020. We must with patience, possess our souls.

THE LAST BLOG I WILL EVER WRITE ABOUT VOTING FOR TRUMP.

It all comes to a head today. Blogs I have written for the last 4 years come to an end today. I have written about Trump from every conceivable angle. I have said all there is to say. That is, except for one last thing, to one last person.

Who is that last person?  If you are not going to vote for Trump or Biden because your conscience will not let you—you are that last person, because you are either not voting at all or you are voting for a third candidate.

So, how can I convince you that you should vote for Trump?  Am I asking you to go against what God wants you to do?   No, I am asking you to consider the fact that the Bible considers your conscience to be an inadequate source of wisdom for doing the right thing. In other words, “let your conscience be your guide” is not going to lead you to the right answer.

 I do not want to disrespect any believer, but I do want to reaffirm that no matter how you spin not voting for Trump—you will be giving help to the most vile and dishonest person we can imagine.   That choice—no matter how you spin it—helps put evil in power.

 

Listen to Wayne Stiles:

“God has given each of us a conscience. It is that capacity within each of us that assesses our actions. It’s an internal judge of our standards, but it doesn’t set the standards. It simply evaluates them.

“[Gentiles] show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them (Romans 2:15).

“Our conscience either accuses us or excuses us of sin. But it isn’t an infallible guide to truth. (Neither is your heart.) God never meant it to be.

“Our consciences can be clear and good (Acts 23:1; 24:16; 1 Tim. 1:5, 19; 3:9; 2 Tim. 1:3; Heb. 13:18).

“Our consciences can also be guilty, corrupt, and weak (Titus 1:15; 1 Cor. 8:7, 10, 12; 1 Tim. 4:2; Heb. 10:22).

“At first, we feel guilty for our sins, but the more we do them, the less guilty we feel. In fact, we can even come to believe that what we’re doing is okay. Eventually, the truth no longer affects us.  Your conscience is not your infallible guide to truth. Your Bible is.”

No matter how you spin it the truth is if you do not vote for Trump—you help elect evil. The only way to stop the evil is by voting for Trump.

Think about it. The same conscience that makes you feel righteous for not voting for Trump is also excusing you from feeling guilty for helping evil get elected.  This is proof positive that our conscience is a weak source of guidance.

1 John 3:20 says, “If our conscience condemns us, we know that God is greater than our conscience and that he knows everything.”

I am appealing to the power and love of that sound mind.  Yes, Donald Trump is a man with a past.  So was Ronald Reagan who used to wildly party with Errol Flynn.  But like Ronald Reagan, Trump has shed that past and as a Christian, is finding his way.

Eric Metaxas tells us that Chuck Colson—the notorious Watergate villain—took 2 years after his conversion before he became outspoken and heroic in his faith.

How should you vote?  God is greater than your conscience and knows more than you do.   Don’t act out of human conscience…vote out of your God-given sanity.   Get dressed, go to your polling place and vote—vote against evil.

By contrast, Biden is guided by heinous ambition to remove everything you love about America, an ambition that is eating him up inside. His ambition also drove him to sell us out to China. His outspoken support of killing a baby even after birth is proof positive that you must stop him.

And even if you can get past all that you still must still stomach the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop that shows not only vile pictures but irrefutable evidence that Joe Biden is a greedy traitor to his country.

How should you vote?  God is greater than your conscience and knows more than you do.   Don’t act out of human conscience…vote out of your God-given sanity.   Get dressed, go to your polling place and vote—vote against evil.

After being warned, the Church in the 1st century did the exact opposite. They rose up and became even more bold to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, accompanied by signs and wonders. And that is what the Church in the 21st century must do, during this hour of persecution!

YOU WANT GOD’S PROTECTION. BUT YOU WON’T TAKE A STAND?

The Sheriff of Douglas County, Nevada, Dan Coverley, has a message for his county’s library: “Due to your support of Black Lives Matter and the obvious lack of support or trust with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, please do not feel the need to call 9-1-1 for help,” Coverley wrote. “I wish you good luck with disturbances and lewd behavior, since those are just some of the recent calls my office has assisted you with in the past.”

His actions seem harsh but I can fully relate to this Sheriff’s frustration, and I might add that many sheriffs now feel this way.

I believe ‘woke’ American Christians doing the very same thing to God that this community is doing to their sheriff. They support Black Lives Matter—a Marxist/atheist movement. They use the terminology of the Left to appear inclusive, not realizing they are excluding God by their fellowship with darkness. These lukewarm believers are not only soft on abortion and sexual immorality, they also have little regard for the precepts of the Bible.

Millions of these ‘woke’ Christians are nervous and anxious about tomorrow. They see the storm we are sailing into. They even pray for protection for themselves and the ones they love—but they won’t take a stand against clear evil…the evil that God hates. 

Worse yet, they reject God’s means of saving us. Hypocrites! Why do you pray for God to protect you from the very evil you are collaborating with? Think about it: how decadent is a nation that needs an executive order to save babies born alive? And how can you not see you are supporting that decadence when you vote Democrat?

Wake up! The revolution on our streets is not about black lives or even about hating Trump. The goal is an America without God. This revolution is driven by atheism. Its goal is to get America to turn her back on Jehovah God. You must choose a side if you want protection.

And remember this: The war on God extends to the giants of media and commerce: Facebook, Google, Amazon, Apple, and Twitter are not neutral. They are actively working toward a world without God. That is why they censor Conservative Christians.

These five God-hating companies have a combined net worth of over $6 Trillion, and unfettered access to the largest audience in human history. That is not even the full extent of it: NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, and hundreds of newspapers also beat the drum for a Godless America.

That is why they tacitly approve of the mayhem on our streets. That is why you see the unravelling of morality and the vilest perversion paraded before our children. You are watching destruction by design. Evil men skew poll numbers and virus statistics in order to take control and drive the church underground.

Israel was guilty of rebelling against God’s law while demanding His protection. They felt entitled to be protected because they kept a form of Godliness. They even fasted. Still, they wondered why God wasn’t hearing their prayers of protection.

Israel cried out to God. “Why have we fasted,” they say, “and You have not seen? Why have we afflicted our souls, and You take no notice?” (Isaiah 58:3)

In the same way, many American Christians wonder why they are empty inside and full of dread. Preachers who refuse to take a stand, wonder why their mouth is full of straw and not revelation from God.

 

God answered Israel, saying, in essence: ‘Do you want to know why your prayer for protection and inner peace is rejected? Why God doesn’t listen to you anymore?’

The following verses are just as much for woke American Christians today as they were for Israel then: “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy, that it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered perversity. 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” (Isaiah 59:1-4).

Ask yourself: Have you called for a truce with evil? Is there blood on your hands because you will not oppose abortion? Are you guilty of not calling for justice and truth?

Are you guilty of using empty lying phrases like, “Black Lives Matter,” and “White silence is violence?”  You know these are falsehoods. You know these violent protestors hate God.

Are you consorting with the avowed enemies of God and asking for God to keep you safe from their agenda?

Worst of all, do you reject Donald Trump? He is the strong medicine America needs. Of course, you would have chosen someone else. Of course, you wanted a smooth voice and a polite enabler. But that is not what this hour calls for! Why do you pray for protection, but refuse to vote for him?

On the other hand, there is a word of protection and joy to the remnant of God. You aren’t meant to be a ‘lone ranger.’ You need to be in a church where the leader is pressing into God, and seeking revival. Find a church with a godly leader who is neither your ‘theological teddy bear,’ nor your ‘pulpit impresario.’

The nation is filled with houses of God that will be ground zero for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. True prophets like David Wilkerson foretold two events—a calamity that would shut down America in an instant, followed by a fresh wave—a reformation of the Holy Fire of God, leading to a massive harvest.

Hold on! Another Azusa St. or Jesus Movement-type of event is coming for the people who know their God, and for the houses that have stayed faithful to their Lord.

 

On the other hand, there is no doubt that America has filled up God’s cup of wrath. Though we have passed through one storm—it won’t be the last. If we don’t learn the lesson, and repent, the wrath of God will again come down upon wickedness, because He means to purify the church and save our nation from itself.

But, woe to those of you who pray for protection, but refuse to take a stand.

In God, there is safety in taking a stand:

And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for just such a time as this?” (Esther 4:13-14)

 

 

 

P.S. A Special message to those who support Mario Murillo’s message to America

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.

THE CHRISTIANS WHO ARE GOING TO VOTE FOR BIDEN ANYWAY

I will hammer away at church hypocrisy as much as I can until election day. In this updated post I go after the root cause of the moral delusion that allows Christians to believe they can vote for Biden…and worse, that they don’t need to vote for Trump.

We had a pandemic that should have ignited reverence and repentance in Christians. But it didn’t. The big reason is modern preaching. That widespread moral confusion spills over into Christian sentiment about Biden.

Here is my question: How can they call themselves Christians and do such an anti-Christian act as voting for Biden? The answer is simple: modern preaching. Modern preaching has produced the most Biblically illiterate generation of church-goers ever.

Because of modern preaching, Christians don’t know what they believe beyond their false vision of a loving, tolerant and generous God who caters to their every whim. A God to overlook their carnal lifestyle.

Because of modern preaching a moral choice is not as important as ‘feeling loved.’

Because of modern preaching, many who call themselves Christians cannot handle persecution. And this is a critical point. Why? Because the platform that Biden is running on is hatred for Trump. And the hatred of Trump coming from the media and Hollywood makes it uncomfortable for an ambivalent believer to take a stand. They want to be accepted…the same motivation that drives their celebrity pastor. Acceptance!

Certain Christians want him because he is not Trump. But this is not a conviction but a concession like the concessions Christians have made in other areas of morality. Again because of modern preaching.

It is true that Biden is not Trump thank God, but believers need to be clear about what their vote for Biden will do to the world and what it says about them. I beg you to open your heart and mind to facts.

Again, these are facts not opinions:

There’s undeniable evidence of cognitive decline in Joe Biden. He often looks confused, the man can’t finish a sentence. He has the rude angry outbursts that accompany this form of decline.  He continued to give unwanted attention to females long after being warned. It’s almost as if he forgot to stop.

Back to the issue of cognitive decline. Below are his actual words as he addressed the coronavirus. Teleprompter and all.

He has embraced the full compliment of socialist evil embedded in the Democrat platform. He wants Beto O’Rourke to take away our guns. He wants to reinstate laws that oppress Christian bakers and businesses. Not opinion. Things he has just said. He is so desperate to become President that he has vowed to veer left and rally those who support the agendas of Planned Parenthood, the LGBTQ activists, and socialism. He has even made a deal with the other devil, Bernie Sanders.

China lied about Covid 19. That was a devastating attack on the United States. Joe Biden has made a career of giving in to the Chinese government. He even sided with them after the pandemic started accusing Trump of racism for stopping flights from China. Attacks from China are only beginning. That of itself makes Biden a disaster and the absolute worst choice.

Joe Biden is the consort of Barack Obama, who has consistently been the most hostile President in history toward the Bible. How can you call yourself a Christian and vote for Joe Biden? He is too weak to resist Obama’s war on the church. He will serve at the behest of the worst enemies of both the church and the nation. He will go after every value Christianity stands for.

It is clear what Joe Biden will do—his every move will be anti-Christian—so how can you believe you are innocent and not do everything in your power to stop him?  The only way to stop Biden is to vote for Trump. No one else, no matter how saintly you esteem them to be, has any chance of winning. And if Trump loses, America will belong to the enemies of God.

This pandemic has shut down the American economy. How can you call yourself a Christian and vote to elect a cure that is worse than the disease? Should the economy be in the hands of Biden?

Many liberal governors will do all they can to keep churches shut down long after the virus has subsided. How can you call yourself a Christian and allow an enemy of the church and an ally to these governors to put the finishing touches on an already dangerous situation?

Come on—ask yourself, do you seriously believe Biden will be able to rebuild America after all the damage this pandemic has done?  Trump alone possesses the skill and the will to bring us back from disaster. China fears Donald Trump but their mouth waters at the thought of a Biden presidency and a Democrat-run Congress.

 

This corona virus is the warning shot across the bow to a nation that has filled up the cup of iniquity with the wrath of God. So far, many in the church are still drowsy, indifferent and ignorant of the two most important facts that exist in this hour.

1. America must repent or be diminished. We have shoved God away. It grieves God that lost souls go after depravity, but it also grieves God that so-called Christians still don’t get the urgency of this hour and the utter necessity of radical repentance.

2. We must appreciate that Donald Trump is an act of mercy. He is a rough and tumble deliverer. Certainly, many have wished for a smoother, less combative President. The fact is that America, in her sin, has made it necessary for God to use strong medicine. We must appreciate that Trump was sent by God or suffer unspeakable consequences.

“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Ps. 11:3)

The foundations are being destroyed, and it is clear who the destroyers are…so how can you call yourself a Christian and vote for Biden?

P.S. A Special message to those who support Mario Murillo’s message to America

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.

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?

ITS NOT OKAY FOR YOU TO VOTE FOR BIDEN

Tré Goins-Phillips, who wrote an editorial for Faithwire entitled, “How you vote in November will not decide your salvation,” needs to be confronted.

I will provide the confrontation.

You should know that people often make a case for something that doesn’t actually exist. Take the title of this article, for example. How many of you have been telling people they are going to go to hell if they vote for Biden? My guess is, not many, if any. That is a writing tactic which is designed to distract you from the real intention of the piece.

You are supposed to react with, “My Goodness! Are people really saying that about going to hell?” No, they are not. But now you think there is a widespread problem for which Goins-Phillips will provide the solution. His is a position in search of facts. The truth is that this article introduces eternal damnation in order to create a false comparable: there’s not much difference between voting for Biden or Trump.

Especially, since your salvation is assured one way or another. The article misses the point entirely about why it is wrong for anyone who loves Jesus to vote for Biden: that it is simply not right.

This dastardly downplaying and manipulation of comparisons does a grave disservice to the church. That is because Goins-Phillips is heavily tilting toward “woke” rather than the Bible. Look at what he said:

“And it’s overwhelmingly clear that, although Scripture doesn’t explicitly name many of the issues voters are concerned about, the Bible—and Jesus—have a lot to say about the topics themselves: the value of human life, the importance of caring for the poor, the weight of justice, and the significance of loving your neighbor.”

He throws a bone to the stance conservative Christians take against abortion, in his reference to “value of human life.” The next three are all codes for leftist believers. But even in that he fails. Biden leads a movement that every Christian should find abhorrent. Let’s take stock of how Biden and Democrats handle the three remaining issues.

1.Caring for the poor. “Woke Christians” continually love to label Christians who support Trump as not caring for the poor. Yet, every city the Democrats control are hell holes and prisons of poverty. The Christian conservative wants a vibrant economy to lift people out of the Democrat plantations. You don’t end poverty by addicting people to government programs. You don’t give them the hope and the will to succeed that they need by continually convincing them they are victims. That is cruelty. You lift them out by creating a color-blind system of opportunity. Democrats have never and will never do that. And voting for them is a vote to keep these leftist gulags in business.

2. Weight of Justice: Clearly code for the anti-cop Black Lives Matter narrative and the campus social justice warriors. Never mind that black owned businesses have been burned and looted. Never mind that the incidents of police brutality, while vile and utterly inexcusable, are not the overwhelming cause of death in black neighborhoods. Black on black violence isn’t addressed because it exposes the true source of black misery in America: The Democrat Party and their corrupt elites control these killing fields.

3. Loving your neighbor. To love a neighbor, you have to love a neighborhood. Loving a neighborhood is not a photo-op by liberals acting out of white guilt. The weekend band-aids only make things worse.

Mario Murillo Ministries brings in food and clothing, but we know that is only a small part the answer. Inner city people need to see the power of God. They need deliverance and true conversion. They need churches that don’t perpetuate the store-front legalism. Rather, on-fire pastors who are called by God to work in these neighborhoods are the key. They need to get into the schools. They need to work with police. Who do you think opposes and locksdown these essential ministries? Leftist teacher’s unions and politicians. Clearly, you are not loving your neighbor by voting Democrat.

Then he says, “We should be wary of watering down the Word of God by believing—much less saying—the strength and veracity of a person’s Christian faith can be unquestionably extrapolated from how he or she votes in a few months.”

Tré Goins-Phillips’ editorial that began with the point that you won’t go to hell for voting for Biden has now evolved into the fact that how you vote isn’t a test of the veracity of your Christian faith. That is an entirely different point, and it is the real deception this article is designed to perpetrate.

Okay, let’s take that statement and time-travel it back to Germany when that nation was voting to install Hitler as Chancellor. Mein Kampf had been read by many, including Christians.  The church knew exactly what Hitler was going to do. And yes, the Christian faith of every German could unquestionably be extrapolated from how they voted. That was the whole point of Detrick Bonhoeffer’s ministry.

He said: “Silence in the face of evil, is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

 

You certainly will not go to hell for voting for Biden, but Bonhoeffer is right: God will not hold you guiltless. Goins-Phillips’ main point is that God will hold you guiltless.

China had one last election before tyranny took over, as did Russia, North Korea, and Iran. Elections have consequences. Votes matter.

The worst statement this writer made is the following: “Some of you may feel perfectly at home with team Trump, while others sense a camaraderie with the Biden camp.”

Camaraderie with late-term abortion? With ‘defund the police’? With looting and rioting? With men coming into restrooms with your young daughter? With drag-queen story hour? With same sex marriage? With a party that commits acts of terrorism, and then blames Donald Trump? With a party that has no idea how to run a country, so they say that Donald Trump is to blame for a 180,000 Covid deaths (when there have been 150K not 180K). Both Biden and Gore have threatened to use the military to oust the President from the Oval Office regardless of who is declared the winner of the election.

 

Camaraderie with atheism? Perhaps you didn’t know that the Democrat Party has made it a part of their platform to endorse and recruit atheists.

Ephesians 5:11 says, “And have no fellowship (camaraderie) with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”

(Should you want to read the Tré Goins-Phillips, article here’s the link  https://www.faithwire.com/2020/09/09/how-you-vote-in-november-will-not-decide-your-salvation/

 

His final statement is precisely what is wrong with the American church and the “spirit” I am continually fighting: “Instead, spend time in prayer, read Scripture, and seek wise counsel from those you trust, and cast your ballots in November with the confidence that, regardless of who is sitting behind the Resolute desk in the Oval Office come January 2021, Jesus will still be on His throne and your citizenship in His Kingdom is irrevocable.”

Only a silly person thinks that Biden can dethrone Christ. Only an ignoramus is fretting that a wrong vote will put them in hell. The worst kind of Christian is the one that abuses the false narrative: “God is in control, I don’t need to worry, neither do I need to act.”

God limited Himself to prayer and intercession. He placed the fate of nations on the right choices of people. That’s why 2 Chronicles 7:14 begins with, “If my people.” We don’t need to pray for an ethereal sense of who to vote for. We need to see the handwriting on the wall. America under Biden is doomed. America in the hands of lawless God-hating leaders is a curse we will bring on ourselves.

And while you won’t go to hell for voting for Biden—if you help him win—your children and grandchildren will pay for your sin long after you are gone. No, it is not ‘okay’ for a Christian to vote for Biden.

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!

THE BIBLE DOES NOT TELL YOU TO OBEY EVIL LAWS

It’s time  to wake up to the sad truth that Democrat Mayors and Governors have declared war. No only on the church but on innocent citizens. This war compels believers to look again at what the Bible says about evil laws and evil leaders.

Democrats, after using the “Pandemic” as an excuse to illegally lockdown the church, have graduated to condoning riots, looting, and now murder in the name of racial justice. At first, I thought they were testing to see how the public reacts. This no longer explains it. Biden’s poll numbers are dropping because Democrat leaders refuse to take action against the domestic terrorism of Black Lives Matter and Antifa. What we have now is a simple case of stubborn madness.

Doesn’t the Bible tell us to obey them no matter what? Absolutely not. And it is shocking how many believers do not know their Bible or have been given false teaching.There is no verse in the Bible that tells you to obey evil government or laws. And again, if we don’t realize that now, before we sit back and let our nation be destroyed.

Christians during the American Revolution understood that the Bible does not teach us to obey evil laws or leaders. There would be no America if Christian Colonists believed they should obey the evil laws of England.

Let me prove to you beyond any doubt that the Bible tells us what we must do in the face of wicked government and laws.

First, I will expose a pathetic heresy that many believers commonly accept as truth. This is a widespread excuse for submitting when we should disobey.

Here is an example of someone who wrote me while under the influence of this false teaching:

“Out of curiosity, how do you justify your argument against obeying the government when you read Romans 13:1-7. The government Paul was talking about was even more oppressive than anything we can imagine. You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government. And, what was Paul’s response? Did he call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above, he said, in the face of a brutal government, to obey. He didn’t say obey if your rights are recognized, he said obey. The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.”

 

This defense of submission to evil government is riddled with error and falsehoods. Here are my responses to selected quotes:

1.You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government.” First the writer tells us to obey evil laws, but then mentions martyrs. They never would have been martyred had they not broken the law by being Christians.

2. Then he asks, “Did (Paul) call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above…” The truth is, Paul did all of the above. “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” (Acts 16:37).

3. And finally, the zinger—the heresy that has sidelined the Body of Christ in the hour when we are most needed: “The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.” Totally untrue. William Wilberforce was a Christian who used his faith in Jesus to abolish slavery in England. In fact, believers throughout history have created child labor laws, health regulations, and have exposed injustice, and corruption. It is safe to say that Christians are more responsible for influencing government, bringing about reform by forcing laws to be changed, and standing up for justice, than any other group in history.

So how did this writer get it so wrong? By doing what so many do. Isolating one set of verses, taking them out of context, and arriving at a conclusion that looks holy, but is in fact, pure and simple fear.

Let’s look at the verses that have been violated:

“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore, you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor (Romans 13:1-7).

It seems to say that we are to honor government in every form, right? Wrong. To demonstrate what Paul is saying I offer this example. Say some parents leave the house, and leave the oldest child in charge. The child is given strict instructions not to open the door for anyone, except for a postal messenger whom they are expecting to deliver an important package that day.

The parents tell the child, “He will have blonde hair. He is wearing blue jeans and a white shirt. Don’t let anyone else in.” So later, a man with black hair, a blue shirt, and black slacks knocks on the door claiming to be the messenger with the package. Do they let him in? Of course not.

Lost in all the quoting of this verse on submission to government is the most important part: The description of the ruling authority. The Bible tells us what they are wearing! Look at the description:

1.They are not a terror to good works. Any government that terrorizes the innocent is not of God. How can you say that Hitler was God’s will for Germany? Hitler and other tyrants are in fact the ones being warned that there were God appointed governments who would destroy them: “But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.”  That is why the just powers of the world rose up and destroyed the Nazis.

2. They praise good works. Authorities that are endorsed by God do not hate or oppose Christian activity. They are the ones who—even if they are not Christian themselves—do not insult soul winning or fight the work of God. They are the cops, teachers, politicians who are glad that children are getting out of gangs and off of drugs.

3. You must be subject for the sake of conscience. When it becomes tricky, is when government is a mixture of right and wrong. Jesus said of the Pharisees, “Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, but do not do” (Matthew 23:3).

Do what they say, but don’t partake of their hypocrisy. Watch them for that moment when they cross the line and come between you and your God.  Just as our conscience should drive us to obey the law, we should also know when our conscience tells us not to obey an evil law.

Here’s when Peter reached that tipping point, speaking to those very same Pharisees: “So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:18-20).

And again, in Acts 5:29, “Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.””

God not only does not endorse evil government: He will have no part in it. “Can a corrupt throne be allied with you—a throne that brings on misery by its decrees? The wicked band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death” (Psalm 94:20). There is your answer. A corrupt throne (government) cannot be allied with God.

The Amplified Bible (1974) puts it this way: “Can a throne of destruction be allied with You, one which frames and devises mischief by decree [under the sacred name of law]?”  How much clearer can it be than this?  It proves that laws can be evil and cannot be allied with God.

In fact, evil laws are the worst form of sin. They provide legitimacy to evil.  Matthew Henry said, “Iniquity is daring enough even when human laws are against it, which often prove too weak to give an effectual check to it; but how insolent, how mischievous, is it when it is backed by a law! Iniquity is not the better, but much the worse, for being enacted by law; nor will it excuse those that practice it to say that they did but do as they were bidden.”

Notice how at the end, Henry says we can’t use the excuse that we were just obeying the law.  That is why Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

The laws being created by Democrats, using the coronavirus as an excuse, are far worse than the virus itself because, unlike the virus, those new laws become permanent.  It is time for the church to wake up and take action, beginning with voting the evildoers out of office and quit calling our submission a godly thing, when it is just a cowardly thing.

“WHO WILL RISE UP FOR ME AGAINST THE EVILDOERS? WHO WILL STAND UP FOR ME AGAINST THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY?” (Psalm 94:16).

 

 

 

 

Dear reader,
This is a message to those who support Mario Murillo’s message to America.
As you know, the lockdown stopped our tent crusades and we are locked in a battle to restart them in Fresno on October 11th. Our major support came from tent outreaches. Prayerfully, Mario decided he would stop raising outreach money, but still keep his outreach team on full salary.
God gave Mario an idea that is win-win. Take our 3 bestselling books, make them a collection and offer them for just $27.
This collection includes a signed copy of Mario’s latest book Vessels of Fire and GloryCritical Mass the classic on revival—Edgewise a guide to living in the last days. We call it the War Chest Collection.
When you get the War Chest Collection you not only get three amazing books—books that can change your life—you are keeping Mario’s voice strong, and you are keeping us ready to invade.  Order your War Chest Collection now.
