Thanks to Snopes and Facebook we learned that CNN actually doesn’t have a giant washing machine to spin the news before they present it. They are referring to a satirical article in the Website Babylon Bee–a site that parodies everything. Wait, what?
Take a deep breath and consider: Snopes devoted investigative energy into telling you that a washing machine for news does not exist. I am not kidding, people. (Said because kidding or not kidding is sometimes hard to detect).
That’s bad enough, but for Facebook to then issue a threat to punish the Babylon Bee if they did it again is outrageous.
It’s a situation that would be hilarious if it were not so nefarious.
It’s disturbing they can’t take a joke, but it is terrifying they are so in the tank to protect CNN that they can’t see parody. They fact check jokes?
Somewhere in the bowels of Snopes and Facebook lurks paranoid and defensive software—an anxiety ridden algorithm combs the earth to prove itself loyal to the left.
As a side note, a study of cult leaders from Jim Jones to David Koresh showed one consistent trait: No sense of humor.
Biased? Of course. Can you imagine Snopes fact checking Alec Baldwin’s parody of Trump? It would crash the site.
We are watching the new evolution of censorship. It’s not blocking information “because we don’t like it”, but “because we don’t like it, we are going to say it’s a lie.” Not a small difference. And to reach so far as to attack satire smacks of North Korean neurosis.
Here is an ironic question: Is fun fake news being banned to protect actual fake news?
ACTUAL THREAT TO BABYLON BEE BY FACEBOOK:
See below for an update.
Christian satire site The Babylon Bee received a terse warning from Facebook this week after the “independent fact-checkers” at Snopes reported that one of the site’s humor articles was “false.”
Adam Ford, who runs The Babylon Bee, was warned by Facebook that a recent satire article about CNN “contains information disputed by (Snopes.com) an independent fact checker.” Repeat offenders, Ford was told, “will see their distribution reduced and their ability to monetize and advertized [sic] removed.”
I am walking the Streets of San Francisco. I snap this picture and something blasted in my spirit: “all that can be shaken.” God has made His choice. God has chosen His targets. God will strike suddenly.
2018: the year that everything that can be shaken will be shaken.
-You companies who have used your wealth and power to persecute the righteous will now be shaken.
-You politicians—who have ruined America for decades will suddenly disappear.
-You preachers who have handled the Word of God deceitfully and cheapened Grace to finance your private life of drunkenness, whoredom, and materialism will have your gift removed in public humiliation.
God shook Himself. He waited. He was patient. He gave you time to play church. He let you have your blessing toys. He looked away in hopes we would come to ourselves. His blessing and his goodness did not bring you to repentance. No, it became a license to go deeper into counterfeit Christianity.
The America church is guilty of great crimes against the Holy Spirit. We told Him to leave and lets us grow Christianity incorporated—the worst thing we could have done.
It’s why we couldn’t stop Barack Obama—why we made no cogent case to save marriage, the unborn, or free speech—why we stood by and watched America change overnight—why we were helpless to intervene when our nation began hating everything that made her great.
Trump was only the beginning of this shaking. He is rude, he is offensive—by design. His words uproot and tear down. He is a wrecking ball to international corruption. His crudeness is a tool of a God with a plan. He makes you queasy? He scares you? That’s nothing…
Just wait till they try to get him out of power. Oh how his enemies rejoice thinking they have nailed him as a racist. They will fail for 2 simple reasons: He is not a racist and he is in power for a divine reason.
Watch the most powerful people attack and crumble. Watch liberal heads explode as Trump remains—not because he is holy or even a good leader—but because he is chosen to wreak havoc on the world system.
Why now you ask? Why has God rolled up His sleeve to root up false ministries? Why is He accelerating His earthquakes? I wondered. I asked. The answer was stunning but not surprising. Here are the reasons:
-We are at the moment when Google, Facebook, Apple, Twitter along with leftist leaders will unfurl a cyber-iron curtain. Christians will be marginalized. Values that violate our Constitution and freedom of religion will be enforced. Bible preaching will be a hate crime. (How sickening! Carnal ministers were toadies in this plan to drive the church underground and terrorize Israel.)
-God sees the coming mid-term elections. Without a miracle by November, Nancy Pelosi will again be the Speaker of the House. What a plague. We are only months away from a leftist backlash that will transcend anything in our history.
God came to the inescapable decision that revival must come now or the nation is lost. He will pour out wrath…but He will also pour out His Spirit. Hallelujah!
Look for despised little churches—faithfully preaching the Word of God—to become centers of Glory, miracles and mass conversions.
Look for nobodies to come on the scene like a righteous tornado and roar repentance with such power that their voice will echo in the penthouses of power.
Look for campus ministries to rise because millennials will see the blatant persecution and turn Christianity into a celebrated cause.
Look for preaching to be matched with miracles—confirmation of the WORD by medically inexplicable healings.
Look for God to pull out all the stops to save America. Look for every ministry fueled by man to fall by the wayside to make room for the voices that cannot be shaken.
Writing this blog brought me great turmoil until something happened that removed all doubt. I walked the streets of San Francisco fighting an inner war. Suddenly my cell phone rang. It was my good Friend Ron McIntosh—president of Victory Bible College in Tulsa.
He asked me, “what is God telling you about 2018?” Before I could answer him, he said, “God showed me it will be a year where everything that can be shaken, will be shaken.”
Soul-sucking disaster upon disaster, and yet America does not pray. But, I get why. The word of God says, “the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God…”1 Corinthians 2: 14. What I don’t get is how the American church can still think this is a game.
The world is on fire. Because of man, and nature—Earth is ready to explode. Meanwhile the church—like a party on the deck of the Titanic—pats herself on the back for her “big events.”
Nothing has stopped—or even slowed down—America’s depravity. We have spent more money, time, and talent than ever—yet the church never asks, why we keep doing things that don’t work?
When the church
-Feeds a sick nation, a sick gospel, that does not deliver from evil, and worse, makes the already converted weaker, we must think it is a game.
-Our kid preachers’ highest aspiration today is to preach in tight shirts with bulging biceps, live in a mansion, strut like a rooster, and be adored as a celebrity life coach. They must think it is a game.
-When the enemy is no longer the works of Satan, but the unsuccessful life—we are playing a game. We must return to the Bible. The Bible needs to set fire to our sermons.
Many of my Spirit-filled acquaintances are also playing games. Facebook is like a Petri dish for Pentecostals. In one compressed medium, you witness the banal bacteria that excites Charismatics today. Witness the games:
-Titles like Prophet and Apostle are flung around indiscriminately. Every garish emotional experience is hawked as being from God. One “prophet” says he went back in time and visited Moses. Who of us has not scratched our heads at preachers, in ill-fitting jeans, live-streaming from a near-empty church, that they are the vessel of the hour?
– “Prophetic” conferences promise that you will get “a word of knowledge” as if the Holy Spirit was On Demand. Or they offer formulas to “activate” gifts of the Spirit. This is New Age philosophy. God is not a force to manipulate—He is an awesome person to be adored and obeyed. Gift arrive, as the Spirit wills, to hearts broken—emptied of self—for the lost, the poor, and the forsaken.
-Everything seems based on angelic visitations, dreams, visions and trips to heaven. Most of our time is spent on these “experiences” and not on rock-solid instruction from the Word of God.
I believe in dreams, prophecy, healing, angels and visions. But if they are from God they will drive us to the front line of the culture and not into emotional safe zones. “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty to the tearing down of strongholds.” -2 Corinthians 10:4 We are nowhere near strongholds because we think it’s a game.
Beloved, this is not a game. Christians toying with materialism, celebrity, alcohol, compromise and carnality spell doom for America. Google, Facebook, Apple, YouTube and the rest of Silicon Valley threaten to pull the plug on churches. Every day they inch closer to censorship. Will your zany videos matter if no one can see them?
Our preaching ricochets off a culture careening into indescribable debauchery. Soon it will illegal to preach the doctrines you are now ignoring. What a horror! Pastor you wake up one day with remorse over the truths you ignored—but now they’re banned.
Mario is there any hope? My hope in God’s fierce love for America. He will not let this nation go without a fierce fight. My hope is in some of the last people you’d expect.
My hope is in the discouraged preacher. Honest-to-God preachers who feel like fools when they see the runaway success of compromise. Psalm 73:12 says, “Behold, these are the ungodly, who are always at ease; They increase in riches. 13 Surely, I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocence. 14 For all day long I have been plagued, and chastened every morning.”
My hope is in those who chose to fail honestly rather than succeed artificially.
Are you struggling with decreasing numbers and falling finances, even as you present a Christ-centered, Bible based pulpit? God sees you! Hold on just a little longer. Fire is coming that will cause a stampede and you won’t know where to put the crowds.
My hope is in the Christian nobodies. Have you failed? Did man take away your pulpit? Get ready…your brokenness is a key to the fire of God in this hour. A nationwide hunger for reality is about to make shallowness obsolete.
Are you a teacher, business person, police officer or stay at home mom? Do you burn with a passion for your community? Get ready for vision and anointing right where you live!
The hour is so dangerous that God must bring down religious empires and promote others to great power and influence. Satan is also playing games. I believe that God—through the last people we expect—is about to teach Satan what war really looks like.
Masses of Americans believe there is a cover up in Las Vegas. They do not accept the media’s version of events. They believe someone is hiding the truth. Something this evil and horrifying must have more to it than just one man with no motive.
They believe that this is a false flag orchestrated to take away our freedoms and help usher in government contol. I hate conspiracy theories. But who can say without a doubt that they are wrong? We may never know what is behind the massacre in Las Vegas, but there are things we can know—important things.
We can know what is really going on. We can know what to do about it.
That is the promise of 1Chronicles 12:32, “of the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do…”
So, what is going on? The prophetic voices I trust, tell me a blanket of supernatural evil has settled on America. They say it settled on us in stages. Let me summarize their perspective:
The first stage is the fury against the president. I do not agree with everything he does or tweets; but who can deny the onslaught against him is bizarre? Even respected people have gone inexplicably wacko. No Trump insult is out of bounds, or vile enough. The subject never changes. Entire networks preach Trump hate 24 hours a day.
Next, demonic power is creating human monsters. Read this part carefully: The word fierce appears in two notable instances in the New Testament: One is in Matthew 8 calling the demoniac “exceedingly fierce.” The other is 2 Timothy 3:1 “But know this, that in the last days perilous (fierce) times will come…”
The implication is clear: Demons drive acts of depravity—acts so depraved we won’t mention them here. They are flooding mainstream America to kill natural emotions.
Now read the rest of these verses in the light of this insight: “For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God” -2 Timothy 3: 2-4.
Revelation 13:17 says, “and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” I knew that verse would be fulfilled but, I wondered…how in the world could it ever happen in a free society like America? Well, here’s the answer:
A society dulled by supernaturally controlled addictions, and revolting appetites can be easily manipulated. They can consider anybody who disagrees with their politics human garbage. Suddenly, it’s okay to take away their guns, their rights, their jobs, and put them on an economic hit list. Bottom line: it has all gone supernatural.
So, if that’s what happening, what do we do? God wants to do an important miracle in the American church so she can spare America from disaster. THE AMERICAN CHURCH MUST GO SUPERNATURAL.
I have never felt this urgent about a truth. The world is surrendering to demons. We must surrender to the Holy Spirit. There is a great hope but we must act now.
Heaven saw all this coming. God’s Spirit already forged weapons and prepared a plan. There is a supernatural assignment for every church, every leader, and every believer. Here is what we must do:
Stop grieving the Holy Spirit. Stop doing these things that hinder miracle power when we so desperately need it.
-Stop teaching that gifts of power are not for today. Stop asking the church to fight with one hand tied behind her back. Stop denying the weapons the Jesus paid for with His own blood.
-Stop running the church on human power, marketing and wisdom. This makes you AWOL. We are in a war not a business. You have been sidelined and neutralized. You have big events that do nothing to save America. Worst of all, you distract the army of God from even becoming an army.
-Stop banning instruction on spiritual warfare. Restore truth about the gifts of discerning of Spirits and deliverance.
-Stop preaching false revival. Away with strange fire! Stop binging on emotional extremes that reduce the gifts of the Spirit to parlor tricks. Stop having “out of Bible experiences.” Quit the New Age approach to miracles that make it about formulas and techniques instead a relationship with a Holy God. Ask for real power and boldness to speak the truth.
Start asking for boldness and power. Acts 4:29 “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your Holy Servant Jesus.” Peter knew exactly what to ask for in a situation like ours.
God is calling. He is recruiting people to become powerful conduits who display miracle healing power and cast out devils. They will do things we have not seen in decades. They will walk in power most have never seen. They will hold rallies in the worst dens of wickedness and pull treasures out of darkness. The ground is moving. The stirring is getting stronger every moment.
Intercessors are honing their gifts and will soon pray with unequalled power. Prophets are emerging with the true counsel of God and not “prophetic” money schemes.
The real is about to swallow the unreal. A remnant that will not break ranks—settle for human accolades,take bribes, or speak buzz words—is on the horizon.
This is what is happening and what we should do about it.
No president has written a farewell speech that focused entirely on their legacy. Nothing says colossal failure more than this…
Legacy? What Legacy?
By Mario Murillo
At this moment, Obama is drafting his legacy for a farewell speech in Chicago on January 10th. No president has written a farewell speech that focused entirely on their legacy. Nothing says colossal failure more than this.
The greatest travesty is to say he has a legacy. For our own sanity as a nation we dare not confuse lunacy and legacy. You cannot find—with an electron microscope—anything Obama improved after 8 years of holding all the cards.
We must have an autopsy on his presidency or we are doomed to repeat this towering mistake again.
His impending— “I don’t care what anybody says, I did a good job”—tirade in Chicago will be a cringe-worthy act of self- delusion. Far from exalting him, it will cement his status as worst President ever.
How badly did he govern? Consider what he had going for him: He was swaddled in the thickest layers of spin ever accorded an American President. Look who protected him! He had the media in his corner—mainstream journalists outdid each other to lie for him.
He had Hollywood in his pocket—movie stars sacrificed at his altar. Social media giants Facebook, Twitter, Google unambiguously propagandized and censored. Universities taught Obamanetics.
We have had eight years of the most meticulously choreographed suspension of reality that America has ever seen.
Alas, as a testament to his ginormous ineptitude, even this flotilla of revisionism and spin could not keep the bodies from floating to the surface.
At this hour, a pathetic string of panic moves confirms the impending horror. His remaining toadies work to discredit Donald Trump. No outgoing president has ever tried to discredit the incoming president even before they took office. Obama blurts out how he would have beaten Trump. He has become Norma Desmond descending the staircase in the final scene of Sunset Boulevard.
Let’s take one final look at what he did to us.
- He paralyzed the economy: The expansion that began in June 2009 has been the weakest since World War II, with real gross domestic product growth averaging 2.1%. At 7 1/2 years and counting, it is also among the longest on record. 98 million Americans are out of the workforce. Millions more live below the poverty level.
He strangled small business with regulations. He fought harder to put men in women’s restrooms than he did to put money in your pocket.
The greatest testament to his failure in the economy was the immediate reaction of the Stock Market and business when Donald Trump won. Economic pundit Caroline Baum said, “New signs of optimism emerged immediately following Trump’s Nov. 8 election. The stock market has been positively buoyant while consumer, business and home-builder confidence have all soared. Surveys suggest businesses are planning to increase capital spending. That sense of optimism will need to be ratified by results, but the message to Obama is unmistakable: Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”
- He nearly destroyed the Democratic Party. “In the eight years since he was first elected, Democrats have lost more than 1,000 seats at the state and national level. Republicans now control 4,170 state legislative seats compared with 3,129 for the Democrats, an all-time low.
Republicans now hold 33 governorships and will have full control — governorship and both houses of the state legislature — in 25 states compared with five for the Democrats.
Democrats lost 12 governorships, 13 Senate seats and 69 seats in the House of Representatives during Obama’s two terms, highlighting “a devastation up and down the party across the nation,” -The Hill.
- He looked like a clown to our enemies. Obama claims he told Russian President Vladimir Putin in China in September, to “cut it out” in terms of the hacking. Putin’s reaction embodies the world’s view of Obama. Putin thought it was a joke.
Mr. President, at first, the world saw you as a promise. Then they were amused. Now they are dazed and confused by you. Your eight years of leading from behind and issuing empty threats stripped America of moral authority and turned our foreign policy into sputtering wreckage.
Again, Caroline Baum said, “The wars Obama inherited are still going on. The Taliban has made a comeback in Afghanistan. Syria is in shambles. And Secretary of State John Kerry has been so ineffective that no one even bothered to invite him to the Syrian cease-fire negotiations among Russia, Turkey and Iran.
- He stabbed Israel in the back. Obama overruled 36 years of U.S. policy by abandoning its ally Israel and allowing the passage of U.N. Security Council Resolution 2234, declaring Israeli settlements, including the Western Wall and Temple Mount in East Jerusalem, illegal. He did it out of hatred for Israel.
- He made race relations worse. He stood in front of the Greek columns in Denver and promised to make race relations better. 56% say he made them worse.
Before he had the facts, Obama accused Cambridge, Mass., police officers of acting “stupidly” when they arrested Henry Louis Gates Jr. in his own home in 2009. The police were responding to a report of a potential burglary, which turned out to be Gates trying to pry open his front door.
Blacks and Whites took sides and the racial divide began. On his watch cops were killed out of racial hatred. Rioting, looting and burning down businesses were justified to protest. Obama offered only mild rebukes. He led the Democratic Party down the destructive path of race baiting.
Obama has promoted the idea of a police force biased against blacks. He vehemently denied FBI Director James Comey’s explanation for the surge in violent crime and homicide rates last year as a result of the “Ferguson effect,” with law-enforcement officers pulling back from proactive policing following the 2014 fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.
Obama says police are out to target blacks but totally ignores black on black violence. Chicago, Obama’s hometown, witnessed 762 homicides last year, the most in two decades, and 1,100 more shootings than in 2015. Obama refuses to accept the fact that police are three times less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than white ones.
- Obama will not say Radical Islamic Terrorism no matter what. Once more let me quote Caroline Baum: “Obama has spent eight years deftly avoiding using those three words to call an act what it is. He has intellectualized his position by claiming the phrase “equates Islam with terrorism,” which is counterproductive to U.S. counterterrorism efforts.
Instead, Obama prefers terms such as “workplace violence,” even if the terrorists in question pay homage to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the Islamic State. A terrorist act provides an opportunity for the president to lecture the nation on the need for stricter gun-control laws.
Calling something what it is may not solve the problem, but avoiding it makes Obama look silly.”
Some of you may wonder why I have skipped other scandals like Benghazi, Solyndra, Fast and Furious and illegals who killed American. Frankly, there is no room here for all his failings.
Legacy? What legacy? Pilate wondered about Jesus’ mission and legacy. He asked Jesus about it. Jesus said, “ask those who saw my works and heard my teaching.”
Hardly anyone is left who can—with a straight face and a strong stomach—say something about Obama’s words, acts and legacy. Obama is left to do it himself.
Stopping the Nation Killing Machine
By Mario Murillo
Hollywood, pop singers, sports figures, politicians, tech giants like Google, Apple and Amazon along with countless college professors are turning our children’s minds into a nation-killing machine.
This coalition has untold billions of dollars at their disposal. They control the airwaves—and through Obama and Clinton, the FBI and the IRS. They can rig elections.
Months ago this would have sounded like a tinfoil cone conspiracy—not anymore.
Now let’s talk about what God is doing.
As a kid, I liked monster movies. (We are indeed in a monster movie right now.) Those of you old enough to remember the black and white monster movies featured giant insects, aliens and people. The culprit was almost always the A-Bomb tests.
There were two elements in those movies: 1. A dark moment of hopelessness when all weapons failed. 2. A controversial scientist who worked out of a barn.
The military reluctantly had to use the weapon from the barn…the monster was defeated.
I freely admit that Mario Murillo Ministries is that scientist working out of the barn. When this beast of political correctness first oozed out of the swamp, we started warning the church.
We declared that signs and wonders and the conviction of the Holy Spirit are the only weapons for a brain-washed generation.
We declared that we needed to stop fearing politicians and call them out.
We said young minds needed to hear why the teaching of Jesus is divine and they needed to hear the truth about American history.
Then the name-calling and ridicule began. We were told it would never work. We were roundly criticized and rejected. None of this stopped us from finishing our divine training under the Holy Spirit.
The images you see in this blog are snapshots of outreach this summer. It was a summer of supernatural transformations and no compromise.
Leaders see how the make nice gospel is only making things worse. Influential pastors are breaking with tradition and joining us on the frontline. Most of all…there is a growing recognition that this weapon can kill the monster.
In an added piece of exciting news…phase one of our World Headquarters is now complete. We have secured…and paid cash for a suite of offices in Sparks, Nevada. The name of our offices is The War Room. This is our new “barn” and brain center for the next phase of our national invasion to bring Living Proof to the youth of America.
