Mega Church Pastor who Abandoned Christ

In the last days people will be so open-minded that their brains will fall out.

Joshua Harris, betrayed Christ and shattered the trust of thousands of youth who looked to him as as pastor. Now he worries that Trump may damage the church and the Gospel? How rich is this? He has graduated from mere traitor to mind-boggling hypocrite.

At first, I thought I was reading a satire from the Babylon Bee when I came across an article which said, “Former mega-church pastor and evangelical author Joshua Harris said in a recent interview that he believes some of the massive support President Trump has enjoyed from the evangelical community has been “incredibly damaging to the Gospel and to the church.”

And, by the way, the only reason he got this interview is because HBO hates Trump. They did this ‘hit piece’ featuring Harris for the purpose of shaming Christians into abandoning Trump. Not only that, they hope to fan the flames of persecution against believers in America by reinforcing the lie that Christians are despicable.

Worst of all, they insulted the intelligence of Christians: “Harris, (was) an influential evangelical teacher and writer during the late 1990s, and up until he announced he’d abandoned his faith earlier this year (and is divorcing his wife of twenty years), added that having “a leader like Trump I think is in itself part of the indictment” of Christians.”

Do you feel the sting of Harris’ indictment?  No, you do not. Why?  Because who listens to a traitor? Certainly not those who have been betrayed. It can only be his arrogance as a “woke former Christian pastor” that makes him think anyone cares what he thinks.  All the media attention, approval, and sympathy he is receiving is temporary.

1. Besides rejecting Christianity, he has also rejected America, and he now lives in Vancouver, B.C., so he isn’t even in America anymore, which makes his opinion irrelevant.

2. Not being a Christian any longer, why does he care about our President’s affect on the gospel, which he has rejected?

3. “But Jesus said…, ‘No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”’ [Luke 6:62]

He is a fallen brother and we should pray for him, but he also warrants the rebuke of the church for his absurd behavior.

Harris also needs to heed the warning which I give to married people when they are tempted to commit adultery. I say to them, “Anyone who will cheat with you will eventually cheat on you.” Mr. Harris, you cheated on your faith to get with HBO and eventually they are going to turn against you.

Mr. Harris, the Left finds nothing noble or intelligent about you. You are not a respected source of truth to anyone anymore. In exchange for your ongoing prostitution of your integrity, you are a mere pawn being used by the devil and by his followers to get at Trump. Your 15 minutes of fame are almost over. You will be cast aside as soon as their dirty work is done.

And finally, you are not going to parlay your betrayal of Jesus into a lucrative new career.  The Church and the Gospel, on the other hand, will go on and triumph in the end.

Your fear of the damage President Trump is doing to the Church and the Gospel should be focused rather on your own soul and the damage you are causing.

Remember what Jesus said, “…whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” [Matthew 18:6]

Jesus, when speaking of the confession that Peter had just made: “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”  Jesus replied, “You are Peter, and on this Rock (on this statement of faith) I will build My church, and the Gates of Hell will not prevail against it!” [see Matthew 16]

I am praying for you, Joshua Harris: that you will repent of your apostasy, escape from the snare of the devil, and return to your first love.

MANY WILL FALL AWAY BUT AN EVEN BIGGER HARVEST IS COMING

I am only days away from making one of the biggest announcements in our history.  For now, I need you to read something that explains my blogs better than anything else.  The greatest harvest in the history of Christianity will be placed in the hands of special ones—faithful ones.   Already they are being chosen.  Already they have an appointment with destiny that will bring them into an unimaginable nearness to Jesus.

These blogs rain down rebuke on the unrighteous leader—and with equal fervency—prophesy to the righteous core who have held to their integrity.  That is because—with atom of my being—I know the amazing act of God I have described to you is on the horizon. That is why we are about to take the boldest and scariest step in our history.

Some say I am always negative, but honestly, I have no say in the matter. The Holy Spirit dictates what should be said.  He understands the great crimes being committed today and the strong medicine required to be ready for the astounding harvest.

Day after day, I have written the burden the Lord has placed upon me.  Often, the words have been directed at certain leaders.  The messages have targeted shallowness, compromise, hypocrisy, and gross negligence.  Gross negligence, because it wasn’t just what they did that made them despicable—it was when they did it.  They thrashed about in false success—leaving the flock unguarded—as Satan unleashed his most destructive assault on the church and the nation.  That is a profound accusation…but I stand by it.

 

 

They made a conscious decision to exchange their calling for temporal success.  They knew they were tailoring their sermons to inflate attendance even as it deflated discipleship.  They wantonly closed their ears to the political policies that dismantled faith and morality in America.

They are as guilty as those who voted to destroy marriage—they are as guilty as those who voted to force our taxes to fund abortions—they are as guilty as the architects of the God-hating mobs that roam our streets, teach in our universities, and people our institutions.

“How could you accuse me of such things?”  To which I answer, with a broken heart, “How could you have chosen to build a man-made entertainment center when you could have surrendered to God for a moral awakening?  You could have seen revival.

Am I harsh?  Not so much as Charles Finney who said, “If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it.  If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it.”

But, these blogs which rain down rebuke on the unrighteous leader, do—with equal fervency—prophesy to the righteous core who have held to their integrity.  That is because—with atom of my being—I know an amazing act of God is on the horizon.

It will be at once glorious and humiliating.  Glorious to a company of people who, at this moment, labor in obscurity.  Suddenly they will be raised up.  At the same time many who are celebrities will suffer a great demotion.

Those who are called to this will ask and receive things that prior generations could not imagine.  We are talking about awesome things!

They don’t know who they are.  The Lord is testing them in obscurity.  It’s the only way that yields a vessel who can be trusted with great power.  They have been rejected for refusing to conform to the counterfeits.  God made them misfits.  Because He knew what was coming.

God not only knew the insanity of today was coming—He took steps to prepare a special relationship, that would produce special powers for His children. Think of that!

Jesus saw the future and uttered an explosive prayer: PRAY THE LORD OF THE HARVEST TO SEND WORKERS INTO THE HARVEST.  Notice He did not say ministers, or celebrities.  He said workers.  Many want the titles, attention, and rewards…but they don’t want to do the work.  A special core burns white hot with passion win lost souls and heal the sick.  They are hidden now but soon they will shine like the sun.

But there is another miracle awaiting this unique breed.  They will be allowed to see the world around them from the vantage point of the throne of God.  Ephesians 2: 6 says “and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus…”

What do you see from this vantage point?  You see that all the vile railings of our culture are not—in any way—a threat to the purposes of the almighty.  He knows the hollow arguments of the haters.  He is not moved by the mental monopoly of fake news and leftist social media.  He saw it all coming and prepared the response.

God is selecting people and working in them for unmatched power to attack evil.  Great visionary outreaches are coming and they will be funded supernaturally. The Lord of the universe is not poor.  He has pooled untold wealth to transfer it into the hands of trusted, proven, purified vessels whose only passion is to obey.

Finally, those who are deeply frustrated in their calling must learn the secret of the divine slingshot.

They are being hurt, wounded and brought to the brink of despair before their breakthrough.  In their pain and agony, they will cry out why—why am I being pulled away from my promise?  Why does each day take me further and further away from what You promised me?

Like a slingshot, God is deliberately building up the tension—the frustration—the fire to act…and at just the right moment, He will release you.   There is a great falling away coming and it will result in new voices and new anointing leading to the greatest harvest of souls in history.

 

8 things Smith Wigglesworth said about today

8 things Smith Wigglesworth  said about today

By Mario Murillo

On August 11, 1927 Smith Wigglesworth stood in Angelus Temple to preach on preparing for the Second Coming of Christ.  He told the audience that liquid fire was consuming him.

Then Smith made this Opening statement:  But there will be things that will happen prior to his coming that we shall know. You can tell. I am like one this morning that is moving with a liquid, holy, indispensable, real fire in my bosom, and I know it is burning and the body is not consumed. It is real fire from heaven that is making my utterances come to you to know that He is coming. He is on the way God is going to help me tell you why you will know. You that have the breath of the Spirit, there is something now moving as I speak As I speak, this breath of mighty, quickening, moving, changing, desirable power is making you know and it is this alone that is making you know that you will be ready.

1. There must be special preparation for the return of Christ and at least half of all believers will be totally unprepared.

We have to see that these days have to come before the Lord can come. There has to be ,a falling away.

I want to speak to you very exactly. All the people which are pressing into and getting ready for this glorious attained place where they shall not be found naked, where they shall be blameless, where they shall be immovable, where they shall be purified by the power of the Word of God, have within them a consciousness of the very presence of God within, changing their very nature and preparing them for a greater thing, and causing them to be ready for translation.

This is the day of purifying. This is the day of holiness. This is the day of separation. This is the day of waking. O God, let us wake today! Let the inner spirit wake into consciousness that God is calling us.

There are in the world two classes of believers. There are believers which are disobedient, or I ought to say there are children which are saved by the power of God which are disobedient children. And there are children which are just the same saved by the power of God who all the time are longing to be more obedient.

And we heard the word come rushing, through all over, “new theology” that damnable, devilish, evil power that lived in some of these disobedient children, which in these last days opened the door to the next thing.

2.  There will be many Christians who believe that they can do whatever they want and God will look the other way.

People are tremendously afraid of this position because they have heard so much on this line: “Oh, you know you are the elect of God! You are sure to be all right.” There have been in England great churches which were laid out upon these things. I thank God that they are all withered. You will find if you go to England those strong people that used to hold all these things are almost withered out. Why? Because they went on to say whatever you did, if you were elect, you were right. That is wrong.

The elect of God are those that are pressing forward.

3. It will be common for preachers to deny the existence of hell. Denying hell prepares the way for antichrist.

What? No hell The devil has always said that What does Christian Science say? No hell, no devil They are ready for him. The devil has always said no hell, no evil. And these people are preparing, and they do not know it, for the Man of Sin.

4.  It is offensive to talk about the Blood of Christ

When I spoke about the blood and when I spoke about this infernal thing, the whole place was upset. You be careful when anybody comes to you with a sugar-coated pill or with a slimy tongue. They are always of the devil. The Spirit of the Lord will always deal with truth. These people never deal with truth. They always cover up the truth.

Do you believe it? Who can do it? THE BLOOD CAN DO IT! The blood, the blood, oh the blood! The blood of the Lamb! The blood of Jesus can do it. Spotless, clean, preserved for God.

Give the devil the biggest chase of his life and say these words, “The blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, cleanseth us from all unrighteousness.

5. The world will look to worship a man and will overlook his faults to get him into power. These people are determined to have a man. They know someone has to come. We know Who He is that is coming. They begin to make a man. So they find a man in India, they polish him up as much as they can, and they make him as — well, in appearance, but you know we are told by the Lord that there is soft clothing goes onto wolves’ backs.

6. That people believe that certain preachers are of God simply because of their crowds and their buildings.

A person said to me, “You see, the Christian Scientists must be right — look at the beautiful buildings. Look at all the people following them.”

Yes, everybody can belong to it. You can go to any brother you like, you can go to any theater you like, you can go to any race course you like, you can be mixed up with the rest of the people in your life and still be a Christian Scientist. You can have the devil right and left and anywhere, and still belong to Christian Science.

7. As Churches turn away from the Holy Spirit many believers to go to false teachers.

The secret of many people going into Christian Science is a barren church that had not the Holy Ghost. Christian Science exists because the churches have a barren place because they haven’t the Holy Ghost. There would be no room for Christian Science if the churches were filled with the Holy Ghost.

8, The last days are a time for the true people of God to engage in extravagant asking.

Up to this present time the Lord’s word is for us, “Hitherto ye have asked nothing.” Surely you people that have been asking great things from God for a long time would be amazed if you entered into it with clear knowledge that it is the Master, it is Jesus, who has such knowledge .of the mightiness of the power of the Father, of the joint union with Him,, that nothing is impossible for you to ask. Surely it is He only Who could say “Hitherto you have asked nothing.”

So God means me to press you another step forward. Begin to’ believe on extravagant asking, believing that God is pleased when you ask large things.

From Sesame Street to Azusa Street

From Sesame Street to Azusa Street

By Mario Murillo

If the modern celebrity preachers of today were the captain of the Titanic they would have told the passengers, “We didn’t hit an iceberg, we stopped to get ice.”  It takes skill to stand on a sinking ship and convince people it is a pleasure cruise.   Some of these deceitful voices claim to be spirit-filled.

I want to drag you from Sesame Street back to Azusa Street.  Playtime and nap time are over.   I am going to use this blog to rebuke extremes in the Spirit-filled movement.  My special wrath is reserved for the Spirit-filled community.  Pentecostal, Charismatic, Spirit-filled, call it what you will. I am directing this to all who trace their roots to the Azusa Street Revival but run their church and take their orders from spiritual gurus who oppose the Holy Spirit.

If you are spirit-filled and you nurse hidden sympathies that there is same sex marriage, limited inspiration of the scripture and no hell, I have news for you. You are not an enlightened renaissance man. You are the plain, garden-variety hypocrite.  It’s time to be honest.  Renounce your roots or return to them.  Quit the charade.

Insert 1

I am being blunt because you are helping keep a false narrative alive and at the same time you are hindering true revival by opposing it.  2 Timothy 4:2-4 says, “Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.”

Why are you emulating these false voices who preach that, “Everything is peachy because God is so into you, so enjoy the happy times?”

insert 2

But what happy times are they talking about?  If you are among those who want Christianity removed from America, then the last 7 years have indeed been amazing.  An impressive string of uninterrupted legal victories for atheists and radical Muslims in the United States has dechristianized marriage, prayer, free speech and all of culture in general.  Korans are in where Bibles are out.  Christian prayer is out in virtually every sporting and civic event.

For the first time, major companies fire leaders simply for being Christian.  Mozilla fired one of their founders, the Golden State Warriors fired a winning coach, and the city of Atlanta fired its fire chief.  Professors routinely threaten and even flunk students for Christian values.  And now the gay lobby is striving to make it illegal to believe that homosexual behavior is sin.

Never in the history of America has church attendance fallen so fast and persecution against believers risen so high.  Never have more pastors been giddier over non-results.  I am sorry to say this but you are in denial if you look at your packed out church and spike the ball while America and the world drown in a sea of Islamic terrorism, atheism, drug addiction, hunger and debauchery.

Yes, some churches are packed out; but like the Titanic, the crowded rooms are a misleading picture.  The boat tilted and people slid into certain ballrooms.  What you don’t see is the floating debris and the masses that fell into the icy sea.  The facts do not lie; mega churches have not had any meaningful effect on America’s steep decline.

insert 6

We have so many wrong ideas about millennials and we have so much ignorance about Azusa Street!

We hear preachers say “millennials” are too skeptical and cannot handle Bible doctrine.  That is so wrong.   Did you know that Darwin and Karl Marx were more popular at the time of the Azusa Street Revival than he is today?  In fact, fundamentalism was organized at that time to stem the tide of atheism, Marxism, and a worldwide rejection of the Bible.

insert 3

God’s remedy for the dark, disbelieving early 20th Century was to pour out His Spirit.   And that is the answer for today!

Millennials want to deal with racism and social injustice and Pentecostalism is too conservative.  False again!  Azusa Street started the conversation on race long before Eric Holder’s pathetic attempts.   Masses of white believers came to the mission and repented over their racial prejudice.

Another false notion: True Pentecostalism is too legalistic for today.  The accusation of legalism at Azusa Street is a canard!  The good people of the mission may not have danced or worn make up but it had way more to do with a glorious distraction than guilt.  They simply lost interest in vanity and distractions.  By no means did the Holy Ghost make them judgmental.  That came from the next generation who kept the forms but did not experience the fire.

Organic Pentecostalism had great impact on the culture by sweeping millions into a Christian faith that had power, proclaimed victory over habits and trusted the goodness of God to meet every need. To say that this would not work today is to show ignorance of both millennials and history.

Here is the most painful question: Have you looked in the mirror and asked yourself how much suffering you are allowing in recovering drug addicts and those fighting sexual sin by not telling them about the Baptism in the Holy Spirit?

If you repent and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit right now you will indeed lose people, but you will gain an army.  You will lead a congregation rooted in power.  You will not live in the tyranny of the latest church growth gimmick.

What America needs right now is lions in the pulpit, men and women of conviction, full of the Holy Ghost who will, no matter what, obey and declare the full counsel of God.

Why Some Churches Are Becoming Trophies of Hell

Why Some Churches Are Becoming Trophies of Hell

Are our churches becoming Hell’s trophies?   Let’s not fool ourselves. The greatest persecution against the church in America is coming from the gay movement and Islam. Indeed it has spread into other parts of the world.

Let’s turn our eyes toward the church and consider the many casualties that are a sobering part of the history of this spiritual war that rages against men’s souls. Knowing that his time is short, there is no doubt that Satan has intensified his efforts to entice Christ’s followers to compromise with sin and the world.

More churches are jumping on the gay bandwagon, and it will soon shock you those who are yet to do so. Major denominations are now sponsoring gay pride parades, performing gay weddings, and receiving and ordaining gay clergy. Such churches are a coveted prize for Satan. Many who once served the Lord, but have since departed from the faith through the seduction of demonic doctrines are trophies of hell.

More churches will also travel on the false unity trail with the Roman Catholic Church and the whole ecumenical movement. They too have become a showcase prize for Satan and trophies of hell.

Statistics also tell us that more than 1,500 pastors per month are leaving the ministry, and some are coming out as atheists. British scientist and atheist Richard Dawkins has a clergy project that is deceiving pastors into renouncing God and Christianity altogether. Former pastors turning atheist are like Demas, a once faithful disciple (Col. 4:14), but then lured by the world (2 Tim. 4:14), deserting their godly associations, have also become casualties of war and trophies of hell.

The teaching of false grace has infiltrated the church where the extremes of it are opening the door even wider for homosexuality and perversion to enter the church. Marriages will be further destroyed through this extreme teaching. More trophies of hell.

There will even be more persecution from within the church from other professing Christians who don’t appreciate true believers standing up for the unadulterated truth of God’s Word, making them uncomfortable in their sin. Unchecked sin in the church will continue to rise as the “love everyone—don’t judge” mantra continues to gain popularity, and the “do as you please” philosophy spreads like cankerworm.

All those who compromise are also to be considered the chief prize of Satan and potential trophies of hell.

These modern day examples cause us to think of Adam and Eve, Cain, Esau, Samson, Solomon, many of Israel’s ancient kings, Judas and some of Paul’s companions who lost out with God. They remind us of the churches in Revelation who compromised, backslid, grew cold, and were disapproved and some disqualified by the Lord.

The Bible is full of good news, but it is also full of bad news and severe warnings, tragic endings and examples of those who did not heed the word of the Lord.

These examples sound a lot like Paul’s admonitions for the Church to learn from Israel’s failures with whom God was not well pleased (1 Cor. 10:1-11).   –  BERT FARIAS

The World is Falling apart…Come to Reno.

By Mario Murillo

Okay I admit the title is designed to get your attention.  Now that I have it let’s talk.  The odds are that this year you will attend a seminar, a conference or a convention. The question is why are you going?  Is it to receive power, guidance, vital information, or to fellowship with friends and people of like mind?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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