TODAY IS NOT A REFERENDUM ON TRUMP

Don’t believe a single word from those who are calling today’s election a referendum of President Trump.  Today is not a verdict on Donald Trump.  This is not about the left seizing the perceived hatred of Trump.  This is something else altogether.
Some Republicans in the House did not jump on the Trump train soon enough to benefit from his wins.  Let’s not forget how, early on, the leadership of the Republican Party fought Trump.  They even maneuvered to prevent him from running for President.  He had to overcome obstacles on both sides of the aisle.
If the Republican Party had seized two issues, they would be seeing a Red Wave today instead biting their nails.  Immigration and the economy are the two things an overwhelming number of Americans care about.  They want jobs and they don’t want their neighborhoods invaded.  Establishment Republicans were to slow to understand that.  They still feared the media.
Even during this election cycle, many House Republicans were slow to understand the groundswell of grassroots support for Trump.  Look at candidates whose hide is being saved because, just in time, they wisely identified with Trump.

Moreover, House elections are local not national.  What the left is grabbing hold of is the frustration of a do-nothing congress.  Candidates are vulnerable because of their local, lackadaisical leadership—their clinging to establishment ways—and for doing nothing while they had the chance.  None of which is Trump’s fault.
That is not to say the Left’s answer is any good. Their cure is far worse than the disease.
The Left has good reason to try to pin their nonexistent blue wave on Trump.  They want to weaken him.  However, the weakness came from Paul Ryan’s brand of “sort of say something, and sort of do something.”  Republican tabling, delaying, snide remarks against Trump tweets, and trying to appear to be getting things done, is coming home to haunt them.
Look at today this way: Your football team was down 28-0 at the two-minute warning and you finally put the right quarterback in.  He is miraculously driving up and down the field and may have enough time to pull out a win.  Trump has frantically rallied in so many places in the last few weeks that it makes me dizzy.  If God can use anyone to pull out a miracle it is Donald Trump.
But if the gun sounds before he can save the house…don’t blame him, it is totally not his fault.  If he does pull out a win the Republican Party better give credit where credit is due.

AMERICA’S DARKEST HOUR

 

Freedom flickers like a candle in the wind.  We have come down to it: America’s darkest hour.
We are the giddy inebriated fool laughing and stumbling in the dark of night at the edge of the cliff.
When they said Trump was racist.   Did you accept that without a shred of evidence?  Then you helped kill freedom.
When you hear CNN and MSNBC blame Trump for the massacre in the Pittsburgh Synagogue you weren’t outraged?  Then you are the assisting the suicide of our nation.

You witnessed the assassination of Judge Kavanaugh’s character—without a scintilla of proof he had ever done anything wrong.
Who trashed the presumption of innocence?  Who trashed due process?  You can’t see it?  You still see no reason to vote out the scoundrels in Congress who perpetrated this?     If so, you are helping plunge a knife into the heart of Liberty.
You heard Oprah promote celebrations of abortions and you continue to take her advice on your vote?  You are helping call down the judgement of God!
Are you the pastor who spiritualized your cowardice in America’s darkest hour?  Did you use trite phrases to recuse yourself from the horrors of wickedness—the very wickedness God called you to oppose?  Are you, by this, aiding and abetting the downfall of your nation and bringing misery upon the sheep—the very sheep God told you to protect?
If you don’t use your rights to stop evildoers tomorrow, you will never get another chance.  Because if they win, a shroud of darkness will descend on our beloved nation and snuff the lamp of justice.

They are the wolves in sheep’s clothing.  Parading themselves as champions of justice, and equal rights.  They infiltrated everything from the media to the pulpit.   Now we see their real face.  Now their true intentions are exposed for all to see.  Now, we are without excuse if we elect them.
And tell me America, how is it possible you still can’t tell who the real fascists are—who the real racists are—who the real haters are—who the real liars are…and, who the real lunatics are?  If you don’t know at this late hour, you never will.  And history says if you can’t tell good from evil then you don’t deserve to remain free.
You call yourself a Christian and you choose not to vote?  You are not innocent.  You are complicit.  You are one of the authors and finishers of decency in this country.  If you don’t vote, you are voting in Marxists by default.
Marxism has absorbed the Democratic Party and the press has no clue of what freedom of speech is.  We have never seen these things before.  Mark Levin is so right when he said, “So this election is not only about defeating many, many radicals that the Democrats have nominated. Some of them are outright bigots,” he said. “But it’s also about pushing back against the media that has no comprehension whatsoever what freedom of the press means, the history of freedom of the press and why it’s so important.”
The importance of tomorrow cannot be overstated.  This is America’s darkest hour.  Only once in your entire life will your duty be this clear.  We have wasted valuable time and it never should have come down to this. But now it has, and it is what it is: A last call to do what’s right.
If we don’t stop them, we will be doing something that no nation has ever done and survived.  No country has ever handed power to candidates like these and kept their freedom or prosperity.

TRUMP GOES THROUGH HELL FOR THE CHURCH

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I am sorry to say this but…Satan has seduced many preachers who lead empires and independent kingdoms. They—at this hour—will not unify to speak to the nation as one voice.  They can’t afford to offend for the sake of their empires.  Little do they know that if the Left gets its way they’ll have no empire left to defend.

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

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

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

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

Is Soros paying Born Again Christians

A new video from the American Association of Evangelicals says this about George Soros: “through his many funding ventures, has been busily infiltrating the Christian base in America to divide, and ultimately conquer, the religious minded within the Republican Party.”

In the AAE press release they name Reverend Jim Wallis who is touring the states right now to get Christians to vote against Republicans.  “Rev. Jim Wallis and allies are now touring many states on ‘Vote Common Good’ buses to … split the evangelical vote before the mid-term elections.”

The video shows a voice recording of Jim Wallis the leader of Sojourners ministry denying he got funds from George Soros.  Cheryl Chumley of the Washington Times said this:  “But guess what?  His denial’s proven a bit — umm, wrong.

Soros-tied Open Society money and grant dollars have not only flowed by the hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Sojourners, AAE reported. But Soros-tied Open Society money and grant dollars have been flowing to the Sojourners for some time.”

“Soros Funding of Sojourners Is Only the Tip of the Iceberg,” wrote National Review in August of 2010.  Not only that but this has been going on for years.  The Blaze reported this back in October 2011: ““George Soros Sends $150000 to Jim Wallis‘ Left-Wing Group Sojourners.”

The Sojourners has wholly given themselves over to the left but continues to masquerade as Evangelical Christians doing the work of Christ.

Their website says things like, “We are evangelicals, Catholics, Pentecostals and Protestants; progressives and conservatives; blacks, whites, Latinos, and Asians; women and men; young and old … [and] seek to discover the intersection of faith, politics, and culture,”

Their magazine says things like “No Wall Between Amigos.” And this: “Conservative Court-Packing Isn’t About Abortion — It’s About Culture: If the Right really cares about abortion, they should reduce poverty.” And this: “In the Midst of a Political Emergency: The administration is threatening the soul of this nation.”

They oppose Trump at every turn.  They espouse big government socialism.  Remember,  they are touring 31 states for the single purpose of getting Christians to vote for Democrats.

There’s nothing pro-Donald Trump, pro-conservative, pro-limited government, pro-Constitution about this group’s goals — or, for that matter, about the Vote Common Good bus tour, currently winding through 31 cities of America.

The front organization for this tour is called Vote Common Good.  It’s leader Doug Pagitt said this: ““we believe the Trump administration needs to be restrained” and that he simply wants Americans to “consider the common good when they vote.”

Cheryl Chumley says “What’s going on here is not so much Christianity as it is partisan politicking under cover of religious teaching. It’s the furtherance of a George Soros style of progressivism, but cloaked in Christianity — and backed by George Soros bucks — and made all the worse by the initial denials of the George Soros ties.

Anyone can toss down a Christian card, even an atheist. But a clue to identify an anti-American enemy is the wolves always want Big Government, bigger government, a more powerful centralized system with weakened rights for the individual — and if it’s secret Soros dollars and Bible-thumping that gets them there, so be it.”

Be on guard!  Don’t be fooled and don’t forget to vote.  This is the single most important election in our lifetime.

Because you support Trump

Because I support Trump, they stopped helping us win souls.  Funds for winning souls pulled?  Because I stand for Trump?  Won’t get involved in a soul winning crusade because of Trump?  That’s an ugly truth.  In some cases, they have allowed their hatred of Trump to trump their love for lost souls.

We got nothing but support in Texas.   But, resistance from other places drained and distracted us, forcing Houston and San Antonio to be cancelled.

Some who promised help, and have helped for years, have stopped.   Others falsely accused me of talking about Trump all the time.  Did you know that only 5% of my blogs have featured Trump?  Most of my posts deal with spiritual warfare, sound doctrine, revival, and reports of our work.

Leaders have said they can’t be a part of rallies that are political.  This shows me they have not been to any of our outreaches.  In the tent, I rarely, if ever mention Trump.  Not because I am afraid, but because I am consumed by the message of Christ for lost souls and miracles for those who need healing.  In a tent full of hurting people there’s no time for anything else.

And by the way, shame on you if that is why you didn’t get involved.

Others claim youth are turned off by my message.  The notion that youth stay away because I support our President is totally false.  They are not staying away.  If fact, we have a crisis of opportunity.  Our youth are hungry for God.  What we do have is a critical shortage of workers.

There are thousands of millennials out there connecting with what I am saying. Here’s just one sample of emails I receive:

“Every word you speak always touches my soul and spirit in a way I cannot explain. I’m a millennial head over heels in love with Jesus and laying low like how you speak about. I don’t comment on these things, but I have to tell you that us young ones are the Joshua generation! We have been sick of our parents and whomever, sinning and lying and complaining and leading us away from the truth…from God…from Jesus. We’ve had enough, and we are here to serve the Lord in love and be nothing like our ancestors. The separation has begun. I look forward to every post you write!” -Love and prayers from fellow brothers and sisters in FL

Now here is a comment from a “Christian” with the mindset that opposes our soul winning.  He calls my support for Trump “the greatest blasphemy.”  He even issues his condemnation in the form of a prayer!  “And here before you, my Lord, are the ones who have engraved their names in testimony to their blasphemies; their turning away from and against defense of the meek, the powerless, the peaceful, those who love others of your flock regardless of their name or color or race or gender. Mine is not to judge; it is only to weep for them. For they follow a false prophet, and I am saddened they have been steered from your path and then evangelize it as if it was your gospel. It is the greatest of blasphemies.”-John

If these timid souls really cared about the poor and the defenseless, they join us in the inner city feeding and clothing the poor instead of pontificating from the bleachers.

We speak out because we understand why America must remain strong, free and under the rule of law.   This pseudo-pacifism—that would make a hippie blush—is what got in this mess in the first place.  It was the church’s silence that brought us to the brink.

So, I went to the Lord and He gave me Proverbs 20:3 “A man of honor withdraws his foot from strife.”  And that is exactly what I doing…I am withdrawing.   Because I am withdrawing from strife, I will not mention any names, so please don’t bother asking.  Because I am withdrawing you will never hear me talk about this again.  I am only telling you because people deserve to know what happened.

This cancellation is especially frustrating because there are many who do support us and would have stepped up instantly.  We just got side swiped on this one.  I take much of the responsibility for failing to see the trap sooner.  The Holy Spirit showed me my failings in this situation.  I should never have allowed this to happen.

-The most important thing is that He is training us for power, wisdom, discernment, and  love to move to a new level of freedom to reach masses of youth and not be held back. 

– We will also not back down.  We will continue to warn America and the church about the demonic agenda of the left.  But never at the expense of preaching the Gospel!

Because we are innocent, God will provide abundantly.  We have learned a big lesson and the enemy will pay for what he has done. 

This is just a speed bump.  Momentum is strong at Mario Murillo Ministries.  We have cities lined up for tent crusades.  And we are going back to the two we missed.  This was a gigantic fluke I am certain will never happen again.

 

 

I NEVER SAID THAT

It was interesting how many thought I was claiming that any Christian who disagrees with Trump hates him.  I never said that. 

It was equally remarkable to see how angry they got—how they took it so personally.

Some of the comments were hilarious.  “I am a believer, I don’t hate him and proceeded to say very hateful things about him. Other Christians cited the audio of Trump from 12 years ago as proof that he is evil.  Not even considering he might have changed.  Again, they add the disclaimer, “but I don’t hate him.”  Here’s some more comments:

“This is why young people won’t listen to us.”

“The article is divisive to the Body of Christ.”

“Stay out of politics.  No politician or party can be used of God.”

But my favorite criticism came from the guy who said he was a Christian and told me to go to hell for accusing him of hate.

Thank God they’re wrong about young people.  I hold nothing back and it just makes more of them show up.  I give them direct appeals and they come to Jesus.  It’s a canard to say youth won’t come hear me because of my views on Trump.

What looks divisive may simply be God separating the sheep and the goats.  A large core of believers is rising that is finished with the lukewarm church and squeamish believers .  That is a good thing.  It is beyond question where we are now.  When the hard left took possession of the Democratic Party, the first thing they did was throw the church out.  Thus destroying any innocent reason for a believer to vote for any democrat.

We have never faced such a hate-filled mob of media elites, Hollywood hypocrites, and God-hating extremists—hell-bent on crushing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in America.  Never, has it been clearer what side of the issue you should be on.

Who changed traditional marriage?  Who champions—not only abortion—late-term abortion?  Who puts Christian bakers out of business?  Who is ignores MS-13 because they are immigrants?  Who espouses bans on prayer, conservative speakers on campus, confiscation of guns, makes “F—Trump! a mantra” a statement, one Democratic columnist said, “was worthy of the Pulitzer Prize.”  Whoever is not utterly disgusted with the treatment of Judge Kananaugh will also shy away from their duty on other issues.

If you think God can’t work through a political leader think again.  If you think politics has no place in spiritual warfare think again.  Few if any of those offended by the post mentioned the evil of the Democratic Party and the grave threat they posed to America.

At this moment, God is trying marshal His people to stop the total destruction of freedom this November.  Sadly, many Christians still don’t get it.  They have the considerable energy to write hateful comments but not enough compunction to vote.

Yes, I’ll say and maintain my conviction…in all this madness of globalism, and George Soros-funded tyranny, Trump is a momentary reprieve from God—an imperfect vessel notwithstanding.  He is a stop-gap buying time for the church to act.  And it’s disastrous for the church to ignore it.  If nothing else, he defeated Hillary Clinton.

Never mind the dinky stuff.  Look at the policies and the laws he is undoing and the ones he prevents—laws and policies that would muzzle the church and will build a godless nation for your children and grandchildren.  Trump is a firewall.

When you say that God can’t use politicians you are saying only the devil can.    

God’s catalysts can come in strange packages…ranging from the bizarre, to the coarse.  Samson, Saul of Tarsus, and even General Patton come to mind.  Often, they offended sensibilities, barged in where others feared to go.

The devil has the American church groggy on the goodness of God without the needed balance of the holiness of God—holiness that leads to authority—authority to rise and tear down cultural strongholds of Satan through moral awakening.

As I said, Trumps is buying us time.  Seizing the time?  Well, that’s our job.  I believe that many who protested my blog do not hate Trump but some of their overreaction is curious, and begs another question:   Where’s your alternative plan, or cogent grasp of the threat of the hard left, or even a concern about abortion, and the heinous sin that so many in the church just choose to ignore.  Is it that you wanted to be liked by the left or something worse, cowardice.

 

OUR RECIPE FOR DISASTER

By now you have heard or seen the video of Lance Wallnau relating the prophetic warning given to Evangelical leaders by Trump.  Trump’s description of the left’s hate for the church, and the plans they have for us after the November midterms are hair-raising.

One of the dumbest things anyone has ever said to me was, “have faith Mario, we got this.”  Those words embody everything that is wrong with the American church’s condition near the November midterm elections.  It oozes entitlement.  It drips with denial.  It’s faith without works and it is dead. It is a recipe for disaster.

Look at me: If the election were held today, Republicans would lose the House of Representatives and possibly the Senate.  Everything Trump has done for the rights of Christians—the ones Obama removed—would be removed again.  On top of that, the most oppressive laws you can imagine would flood American churches from Washington.

Mueller’s investigation would look like a picnic compared to the tidal wave of investigations the left would undertake.

Thugs would be emboldened to physically attack conservatives and Christians.  Social media would tear off its mask and fully censor the church.

Right now, Trump and his family are facing hatred that is unimaginable.  They hate him because of the long list of things he has done to protect your church.  That’s because the left hates you. Hello?

Are you still holding on to the grudge of what the man was 10 years ago?  Shame on you!

And what has the church done to repay Trump for his nameless, daily agony on our behalf?  We reward him with apathy, ingratitude and ignorance.  My friend, we are about to pay an incalculable price for our warped view of this hour.

 

Don’t be one of those who rejects my warning because you can’t imagine it.  Here’s something you can imagine: California.  Do you honestly believe many pastors will get in their pulpits in California and tell their people to vote Republican?  Of course not.

To those of you that still hold to the fantasy that “we got this,” let me ask you this: Do you see many Pastors at all telling their congregations to vote Republican?  Do you see the popular leaders of the Body of Christ unified behind stopping the left’s agenda?

Satan has seduced many preachers who lead empires and independent kingdoms. They—at this hour—will not unify to speak to the nation as one voice.  They can’t afford to offend for the sake of finances.   Little do they know that once the left gains power they will have no empire left to defend.

Mario is there any hope?  Yes, but we need God put electrode paddles to our faintly beating hearts.  We need holy rage, holy boldness.  We need to talk to every believer we know and wake them up to vote and to tell others to vote.  We need to confront Pastors to get in their pulpit and energize believers by the millions.

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

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