It is just about the most disheartening thing I can think of. An army ready to fight, being held back by a reluctant general. Yet, that is precisely what we are watching happen to millions of American Christians. We are ready, but our leaders are not. So many believers just can’t fathom why celebrity pastors are not pushing back against the destruction of the United States.
What is unfolding on our streets is a direct parallel to the early stages of the Reign of Terror during the French revolution. The Committee of Public Safety was set up on April 6, 1793. What a perfect name, right? A series of massacres and numerous public executions took place in response to revolutionary fervor, anti-clerical sentiment, and spurious accusations of treason by the bloodthirsty Maximilien Robespierre.
These preachers are condoning a movement where only certain black lives matter—revolutionaries who ignore the vast numbers of blacks who are being killed on the streets of Democrat-run cities, each and every day.
Here is what these preachers are giving credibility to: Democrats behaving like plantation owners, staging a mock revolution that is designed to numb their victims back into chains. They have no intention of setting their ‘property’ free.
They hate Trump because the economy boomed and offered minorities a way out. Suddenly, blacks could exit the cycle of poverty that the Left had designed to hold them in their “place.” Not only out of poverty, but out of victimhood, and out of the Democrat Party. That is why you see Black Conservatives like Candace Owens and David Harris being vilified.
Nothing new here. They did it to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. In 1991 he said to the Democrat controlled Senate, “And from my standpoint, as a black American, as far as I’m concerned it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you.”
From toppling statues to sanctifying pancake syrup, the mobs on our streets and the mobs in our corporate penthouses, are repeating the madness of The Committee of Public Safety. The early accusations of racism are expanding into schizophrenic delusions. A vortex of hatred is dragging reason, decency, and civilization itself, into the abyss.
Nancy Pelosi who, through the alchemy of science, is actually becoming a statue herself, silently approves of the toppling, the defacing, the burning, the desecration, and the madness on our streets. That, my friend, is to be expected. But the behavior of Christian Leaders is shocking. How can they be silent? How can they be in agreement with extremists and timidly repeat the lies of the Left?
I am going to offer three reasons why they are not doing their duty. And By the Way, please view this video from Pastor Jack Hibbs.
1. Preachers are virtue-signaling. Virtue-signaling is the popular modern habit of indicating that one has virtue by merely expressing disgust or favor for certain political ideas or cultural happenings. They will chant Black Lives Matter without any regard to the insipid and dishonest use of that term. It is a cheap way of gaining acceptance, but it puts their congregation and the freedom of the nation at risk.
One spirit-filled pastor explained his involvement with Black Lives Matter by saying, “Fighting racism is an extension of the Kingdom of God.” Only he isn’t fighting racism. As I already showed you, the BLM movement is advancing racism, and perpetuating the despair and victim-hood in the Black Community.
But this pastor doesn’t want to think that far ahead. He is only doing what the Pharisees did, as Jesus spoke to one of them: “Then the Lord said to him, “Now you Pharisees make the outside of the cup and dish clean, but your inward part is full of greed and wickedness” (Luke 11:39). In the same way, you preachers refuse to look beyond the outward appearance of righteousness to see the real wickedness.
2. These preachers are silent because they want to preserve their empires. How shocking is that! They can work with Democrats because they understand the need to numb their consciences and cast out convictions in order to preserve the status quo. Their Bible is tossed out. Their calling is tossed out. Their idol is the magnificent campus they have built.
One of these leaders—a spirit-filled pastor said, “Mario Murillo is hurting the Body of Christ by supporting Donald Trump.” That statement is pure deflection, and he knows it. He said that, in order to clear himself of his own failure, and his own responsibility and knowledge that it is not the Body of Christ I am hurting, it is his empire.
This man knows nothing about what is hurting the Body of Christ. Worst of all, he doesn’t have a clue about the big hurt that is coming to the Body of Christ if Donald Trump is not reelected.
I would love to hear his take on the only alternative, Joe Biden—a hand puppet for the most dangerous people on earth.
3. A lack of courage. In one city, the pastor of a large church told me that they would not back our tent crusade if I mentioned Donald Trump. After several minutes of treating me like a mushroom—that is, keeping me in the dark and putting fertilizer over me—he admitted the truth. There were liberals in his church with money and they would stop tithing if he ever mentioned Trump.
The fear of many pastors appears in their silence, in their reluctance to respond to those who want to fervently pray and speak out for freedom while there is still time. Instead, they will dodge all questions. They will not ask you to vote. They will spiritualize their cowardice in a thousand words of obfuscation. But the bottom line is that the fear of man has them in its snare.
They will say that by speaking out, the government will silence them and they might lose their church. Two things blow that lie out of the water. First, Sir, you are already silenced. You are already muzzled from speaking truth, not by government, but by your own fear. Second, the fastest way for you to lose your church is to allow this growing tyranny to go unchecked.
There can be no doubt that Christian Leaders must unify now. They must unify behind a God-given plan
And finally, to all our readers. This hour calls for fervent, unrelenting prayer. And having prayed we must act. It is a sad, dangerous, and decisive day we are witnessing. It is time for us to lovingly confront those believers and leaders who are remaining silent, and having done so, to act in honest courage. Why are you sitting under a ministry that refuses to do its duty? Why do you continue to support, with your precious seed, a ministry that is aiding and abetting the destruction of America?
Because our nation is at stake, God will now separate the sheep from the goats, and the shepherds from the hirelings. He is going to elevate the believers and preachers who will rise up and obey His call, while at the same time, He will put down the make-believers. To God be the glory!
P.S. A Special message to all of our friends from Mario Murillo Ministries
Why do we offer you books? It is certainly not to blunt the impact of the message you just read. In fact, these books reinforce the message we are trying to spread. More on that in a moment. So, why do we offer them to you?
When the pandemic closed our tent crusades, church meetings and rallies, the Holy Spirit commanded Mario to keep our staff on at full salary, and trust Him. He obeyed and God has provided. But another thing the Holy Spirit grants are wise ideas. And we needed one. That is when the War Chest Collection was born.
If you look at the page you will see no advertising. And there never will be. And if you get our newsletter you will see that we have stopped raising money for projects we can’t do right now. But even that was not good enough for us.
In this pandemic we needed something that was truly a win-win situation. We prayed for something that would help the people, and us, that was not a garish fund raiser.
Then, we remembered how John Wesley taught his young preachers to always bring books with them that would help the people. Why not then, at a time when people have time to read, offer them something that will empower them and at the same time keep us strong and ready to go as soon as the door reopens?
We are amazed at the impact of Vessels of Fire and Glory. That book is not just blessing people—it has started a movement! Critical Mass remains required reading in many Christian schools and has never stopped influencing people who pray for revival. Edgewise offers wisdom for living in the last days. Together they provide you with solid, hard-hitting and encouraging truth. Not a bad thing just now.
The War Chest Collection has handed the enemy a double defeat by empowering God’s people and keeping us strong and ready.
Thank you for listening and get your War Chest Collection today. Turn your summer read into equipping, encouragement, and fire! We are all going to come out of this mightier than ever! -Mario Murillo Ministries
