HOW THE WAY I PREPARE FOR THE TENT IS A MODEL FOR TAKING BACK AMERICA.

Today is the day and I am getting ready. I feel it is urgent to tell you how I prepare for a tent meeting and how that is a model for getting the church back on the offensive in America.

Sun Tzu said, “Warriors of old placed themselves beyond the possibility of defeat, and then waited for an opportunity of defeating the enemy.” That is what I do spiritually. Can I get you away from the news for a moment? Can I get you to understand the secret for getting back on the attack—regardless of who you are?

Before I walk into that tent, I see those people already healed. I see the drug addicts already delivered. I have already won the war, alone with God. That is why everyone that knows me knows that they have to jealously guard my afternoon, because I cannot be with anyone but Christ. And Christ must defeat my flesh. And if He defeats me, and my flesh, then He can work through me to defeat the powers of darkness.

Besides confidence, we also need fire. And fire will burn out indecision. It will burn out confusion. It will allow you to put all the controversy on the shelf, and then resume the urgent act of praying the right words: “Lord, the nation is in serious trouble. You called me, You trained me, You raised me up for a specific purpose, and I cannot be distracted by all that.”

One important thing that everyone can take away from what I do to get ready for a tent crusade, is that I don’t let the outward appearance sway me. Can you imagine standing in front of a tent full of wheelchairs and people on crutches, and some of the most absolutely suffering humanity you have ever seen? I don’t see them that way. I cannot walk in there with my own eyes.

And likewise, you: you can’t face live, do your job, or even turn on your TV, until you refuse to let what you seen control what you believe.!

God can make you the catalyst. A catalyst is an element that changes everything around it without itself undergoing a change. Imagine how important that is right now.

The Gospel is also a catalyst. When I charge onto the stage I am tell myself: ‘Here is what God told me to tell America. And knowing that I am saying what God told me to tell America, gives me the right to believe that the dead will be raised, the addict will be delivered, the churches will be unified.

My confession: ‘I have the fire. I have the message that God gave me for America!” If you get that same confidence, nothing will be able to stop you.

Here is the point I want to make. Dorcas was dead. And sometimes we need faith to come at us from a completely new direction. Dorcas was dead, and the people around her dead body said, “This is not right! This is not right!

And they found out that Peter, the great Apostle, was in Joppa. They didn’t bring him there for a wake. They didn’t bring him over there to reminisce about Dorcas’ life. They literally said, “Bring him here, to raise her from the dead.” That is a level of submission to the Spirit and power in the Book of Acts that we can’t hardly relate to.

In the same way that they said “this is not right”, so I will stand in that tent and tell sickness and addiction to go. ENOUGHT IS ENOUGH!

In that same way–by confessing that the condition of America is not right and must be changed–we can reclaim our nation and see victory.

Here is what God is telling us: we are not supposed to let Biden teach our children. We are not supposed to let Kamala Harris dominate our lives. That isn’t America!

I can no more imagine an atheistic-America than I can imagine an atheistic-Israel. America is also a land with covenants. Wells. Deep spiritual history. And, folks, God is rolling up His sleeves. He is fiercely in love with what America was. A group of people that crossed an ocean on pieces of wood that you and I wouldn’t dare imagine stepping on, in order to have freedom to worship Christ. And they carved a nation out of the wilderness, and that spirit has got to get back in us!

God is with us. God is on us. I don’t know how we’re going to do it, but God’s going to give us a plan. God’s going to give us the money. God’s going to give us the gifts and the power and the influence and the open door. And no atheist spirit, no perverted spirit, can stand before the Body of Christ, when She shakes Herself from Her division and Her confusion, and Her lack of memory.

The second weapon David used on the giant was the sling. The first weapon was his memory of what God had done in the past. He looked at Saul, and said, “You want to know why that nine-and-a-half-foot tall man is going to die? It is because your servant killed a lion and a bear.”

The Bible says, “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.”

Church! We have been here before, and we are going to win again by the power of God. God just needs to turn on the fire, and stir that fire again in our souls!

THE SIMPLE QUESTION “WOKE CHRISTIANS” CANNOT ANSWER.

‘Wokeness’ begins with platitudes about race, justice, and equality. Going from that to hard facts, fairness, and a workable plan seems to elude the ‘woke folk’. When pinned down to practical solutions, their brain drain is often instant and they begin to ramble and say things that make no sense in the real world.  The sure sign that you are a leftist is that you confuse feeling with thinking.

That two-step transition from ranting to incoherence is perfectly embodied in Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. Watch her work. She begins, as I just said, with tirades against evil. After that it is grim, indeed. She simply makes no sense.

As Scott Moorefield said, “…just about everything that comes out of the young congresswoman-elect’s mouth is either patently untrue, ridiculously unworkable, unintentionally hilarious, or ripped straight from the pages of Das Kapital (in which case it’s all of the above).”

She compared Global Warming to World War II. “the last time we had a really major existential threat in this country was around World War II. So, we’ve been here before, and we have a blueprint of what we did before. None of these things are new ideas. What we had was an existential threat in the context of a war, and what we did was that we chose to mobilize and industrialize our entire economy and we put hundreds of thousands if not millions of people to work in defending our shores and defending this country.”

Doesn’t everyone immediately think, “Hey, let’s do to global warming what we did to the Nazis?” 

The same mental drain occurs when you question—if they let you—the ‘Woke Christian.’ They begin by representing the Left as being more like the organic message of Jesus, in that they imply, ‘We care for the poor and fight for justice for the disenfranchised.’

Ask them this: “Do you believe the Bible is the complete and inerrant Word of God?” Watch closely what happens next. They either do not know what the Bible says, or they do know, but do not believe it to be God-breathed.

Here is a list of the ways ‘Wokeness’ clashes with the Bible.

-Biblical marriage can only be between a man and a woman, because the Bible recognizes only male and female genders (Genesis 5:2).

-The Bible states that human life begins in the womb, thus making abortion murder (Luke 1:15).

-The Bible’s definition of love makes it racism to hate, censor, or refuse education, or employment to anyone because of their color, and that includes white people (Galatians 3:28)

-The Bible says Christ is the only way to salvation, so you cannot mix Christ and Islam (John 14:6)

-The Bible says that if you do not take care of your own family first, you are worse than an infidel and have denied the faith. Open borders does not help those coming to this country illegally. On the contrary, it has sent children into sexual slavery.

But what it does to your family is this: It permits criminals to roam your streets undocumented and possibly infected with a new strain of Covid. This is not only irresponsible—but according to the Bible—a sin against your own family (1 Timothy 5:8).

Woke Christians,’ if they do answer the question of the Bible’s divine inspiration, will answer by deflecting—that is, they will quote other scriptures (always out of context) in order to try to cancel the ones they do not agree with. The Bible must be taken as a whole, or not at all. And that, by the way, is another thing the Bible teaches (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

Still, others will say that you can be Christian and not believe in the Bible. This is utter madness because it turns the central authority away from God and His Word and places it on subjective human feelings. So, now, you can call yourself a Christian and believe in anything. This is the same credo that drives the transgender movement, “I self-identify” (Jeremiah 17:9).

-The Bible instructs us to meet together and to resist government lockdowns based on our faith (Hebrews 10:25; Acts 4:19).

The ‘Woke Christian’ is agreeing to policies that are anti-Bible, and are agreeing with people who hate the Bible, and are at war with the Church. 

“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers [do not make mismatched alliances with them or come under a different yoke with them that is inconsistent with your faith]. For what partnership does right standing with God have with iniquity? Or how can light have fellowship with darkness? What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? Or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? What agreement can there be between a temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God; even as God said, I will dwell in them and will walk in them, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people” (2 Corinthians 6:14-16).

If ‘woke Christians’ cannot answer the question about the authority of the Bible, likewise, they will not be able to answer this question, ‘How can you support an agenda that is unambiguously anti-Christ, and then call yourself Christian?’

SOMETHING CHANGED THE WAY I PRAY FOR AMERICA

Let me ask you a question. How is it possible for Biden to do and say the things he does, with little or no backlash from America? We are watching the single fastest decline in the history of this nation, ever, and it is all a result of its current leader.

Biden makes everything about race. He blurts out lies with impunity. Yet, for all of the catastrophic decisions that have come from the evil that resides in the White House, there is seemingly no consequence to him or his team.

The same lack of accountability applies to the media that is acting in concert with Biden. As are the ‘woke’ corporations that regularly commit grievous crimes against innocent people, and Silicon Valley which is obliterating decency. The inmates are running the asylum.

I saw a taste of this under Obama’s sad presidency, but it was nothing like what we see to today.

Sky News Australia reported this: “President Joe Biden’s administration is keeping the “racial narrative” going because it is the “biggest smoke screen” to all its policies, according to US political commentator Benji Irby. Mr. Irby told Sky News the country under Joe Biden at the moment is “absolutely horrible”. “The country is way more racialized than usual; everything’s about race,” he said. “Everybody’s concerned about all types of slights and micro aggressions and the left are really taking over everything. “We’re in really bad straits here, it’s not very good”.

Mr. Irby went on to say, “The left and the Biden administration are fueling racial tensions and using it as a smokescreen. No one’s ask asking about Hunter Biden and this new gun scandal, no one’s asking about Joe Biden being bought and sold by China. ‘No one’s talking about the fact that China now has a larger navy than the US, and that China is making moves towards Taiwan, and is taking over our country as far as business is concerned. ‘We’re so busy enthralled in race, enthralled in fighting one another.’”

I had to go to God to ask for help. I write almost every day to warn people. I explain to leaders what we must do to counteract the bombardment of filth and falsehood that is showering down on us. But, most of all, I prayed.

I knew there was something more that I could do. I knew I had to learn a better way to fight back against this indefinable evil. Then I got my answer from the Lord, “I want you to change the way you pray.”

The Holy Spirit let me see the demonic hedge of protection around Biden and the leftist agenda. This hedge is what is blinding millions. It is dulling the natural sense of danger and outrage that America should be feeling right now.

The America we once knew is under a spell. The focus of our prayers must shift to a declaration of war against those devils. We must cast them down. The Bible says we can. We can do it by preaching. We can do it by casting out devils. But our greatest weapon is to tear down this hedge with intercessory warfare.

Here are our key verses: 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, “For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, [inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One)”

I took those verses as a direct promise that the body of Christ has authority over the Biden hedge of protection. I felt a strange confidence and I felt faith rising within me. I found myself asking and declaring specific things. I raised my hands to heaven and began to say, “The weapons I am using now will tear down strongholds!” I believe the power of God will move through prayer—mighty prayer:

1. To confuse the media. Just as God came down and confused the languages at the tower of Babel, I declare that confusion and division will come between the leftist powers in the media and government.

2. To derail the agenda of the Democrats, ‘woke’ billionaires, and China. According to 2 Chronicles 20:22-23, “Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. For the people of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them.  And when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another.”

3. To bring greater fire into the hearts of vessels of God as well as terrifying conviction upon lukewarm preachers, until the church rises as one voice to rebuke the workers of iniquity for their depravity.

Will this kind of prayer work? In Exodus 17, we see the model. Joshua went down to the battle, while Moses went up to the heights over the battle and raised the rod of God. Aaron and Hur helped to hold up his arms, until the battle was won.

Moses was cutting off the demonic confidence of the Amalekites, just as cutting off the hedge of protection of the ongoing evil is how my prayer is now targeted.

This is no time to cave in to fear and anger. This is not time to fret about the future of our nation. This is the time to remember an old familiar friend: prayer. And not only that, but to see anew the power that resides in prayer. Let us unlock the power of this old friend to tear down impossible strongholds. We must funnel all the energy that you used to expend worrying and being angry over the evil in our nation, into a new way to pray for America.

Join me in prayer and, together with Lord of the Armies of Heaven, let’s tear down these strongholds!

WOUNDED HEALERS ARE GOD’S SECRET WEAPON

It is clear that a new breed of weapon is about to emerge.  They are the wounded healers.  Who are these people?  Well, they do not have every hair in place or a clean record.  They are not the sanitized, immaculate version of the Body of Christ. 

They have messed up and then gotten back up.  Trampled and left for dead, God restored them! They have no image to protect or ego to wound.  They are the most dangerous people that Satan will ever face!

They gained all new appetites in the furnace of affliction. They do not need the glory, and they eschew titles and awards.  Their unswerving passion is to show compassion and take prisoners of love.  You cannot get them to fight over doctrine, because they have been to the Cross.  They know the Blood that bought them, and then brought them back to life.

They are like Peter at Pentecost.  Only a soul who has been handed another chance after denying the Lord three times will understand the inner fire of a wounded healer.  Who could write such a dangerous song as Amazing Grace but John Newton whose plaque says, “Once an infidel and libertine / A servant of slaves in Africa / Was, by the rich mercy of our Lord and Saviour JESUS CHRIST / restored, pardoned, and appointed to preach the Gospel which he had long laboured to destroy.”

 You cannot find such zeal in religious do-gooders who never brave beyond ivied halls of respectability.   You will not find this flame in the bleachers where the cold souls sit and keep score, but who will never take the field.

Wounded healers do not boast of clean uniforms and of battles evaded, but of scars and gates of hell invaded.  They have no preaching pedigree, only a song that sets the captive free.

We all know of the verse in Daniel 11:32 that says,” Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.“    What we tend to overlook is the verse that comes later that speaks of the wounded healers.  Daniel 11:35 says,” And some of those of understanding shall fall, to refine them, purify them, and make them white, until the time of the end; because it is still for the appointed time.”

 This is a word for you my friend!  Your attack is not to destroy you but to refine you!  Your rejection and your abandonment are not meant for shame, but for purity.   It does not matter how your garments appear to Pharisees, only that they are white before God.

The most incredible news is this… though religious voices have disqualified you; your destiny is yet for an appointed time!   The door that God holds open, stays open!

Now let us look at another aspect of the Wounded Healer.  They are able to reach the masses that the regular church cannot.  Therefore, they are the perfect weapon for this moment, at the end of all things. If only these special-ops believers could see who they are, and lose their need for the approval of cookie cutter Christians, then they will become God’s tractor beam for lost souls.

Getting rid of the fear of man was the principal prize that so many of you gained in adversity.   So many of you wrote to me about the horrific events of your life and in the face of everything else, it became so real, how much God meant everything and the approval of your judges meant nothing.  Truly, you shouted, “If God is for us, who can be against us!”

Many wrote of the life of power that rose out of the ashes of despair. They felt equipped to do more than ever. They felt useful and lethal!! AMEN!!    This has to be the purest meaning of 2 Corinthians 1:3, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

 Look around you and you will see how a new generation of leader is coming to the fore.  They do not wait for committee approval.  They rent a school auditorium in a bad area and just start preaching.  They preach raw sermons with an open heart and crowds come from everywhere.

Their frontline ministry is unlisted in the who’s who of the council of Churches but Jesus feels just fine showing up every time they meet! Look again and see others who carry “unlicensed weapons”.  They open their homes to youth.  They send out food, clothes and love in the most unconventional ways imaginable all with the smile of God.

Wounded healers may not wear denominational labels.  They do not schmooze in the right rooms, but they carry the fight to where it matters the most.  They operate under direct orders of the King of Kings!

When you see one, you will know them.  They will not judge you and no matter how far gone you feel, they will see you through the lens of the Holy Spirit.  They will see you as you will look after your miracle has come.  You will feel welcome in their presence and you will look priceless in their eyes.  They do not view the sinner as a commodity, but as kidnapped royalty.

What about you?  What will you do with your adversity, pain and shame?  All I can do is tell you what I did.  At the lowest point of my life, God was waiting for me to make a choice.  I chose to minister wherever the door opens, and to preach from now on as if each message is my last.

Deciding to go on when you feel nothing but agony, is the greatest victory that you will ever win.   Not caring who gets the credit will rip the lid off your limits.

What are you and I waiting for?  We have loved ones to snatch back!  We have miracles to unleash on lost souls.   There is a whole world out there that has never even heard of church fights or legalistic regulations.

When Elijah told the widow to go and get as many containers as she could and God would fill them with oil, she realized that the condition of the cans, bottle, pails, or pots was not important.  God put oil in all of them.   Wounded healers are not perfect containers, they are simply full of oil and that is all that truly matters.

God knows what he is doing.  Saul of Tarsus was the wounded healer who surpassed all of the twelve disciples.  He felt unworthy to be a disciple and said so in no uncertain terms.  Yet, he attributed his unsurpassed labor for Christ to his awareness that he was a broken vessel.

Jesus showed another power of the wounded healer in Luke 7:44- 47, “Then He turned to the woman and said to Simon (the Pharisee), “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head.  You gave Me no kiss, but this woman has not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came in. You did not anoint My head with oil, but this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant oil. Therefore, I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.”

Therefore, to all you wounded healers, I say, you will not get credit from the religious peanut gallery, so you will have to be content with accomplishing more than any of them will for Christ, and loving the Lord more than they can ever imagine!

MODESTO IS GOING TO BE SO DIFFERENT.

The tent has not just been holy ground—it has been ground-zero for life-altering miracles. As amazing as each Living Proof Tent Crusade has been―Modesto will be different.

Why do I believe this? Let me tell you why. California is a heartrending tragedy. People are abandoning it in droves. Every aspect of any quality life has been devastated here. California is not just suffering, there is a palpable grief that hangs like a heavy cloud over the people.

Now, nearly 2 million voters have signed the petition to recall Governor Newsom. His statement today about movement to have him recalled has only served to further solidify public opinion against him.

With his classic smugness, he insulted the 2 million signers and dismissed them as being nothing but rightwing loons and leftover Trump supporters who hate the mask. He is counting on the blindly loyal Democrat-base to forgive his towering failure and vote the party line. Never mind that 37% of those who signed the recall petition are Democrats.

This is the dismissive arrogance that got him into hot water in the first place.  It is the same disconnect that let him dine with family and friends at the French Laundry restaurant, while at the same time he was warning families to cancel their holiday gatherings.

Today, he reinforced why recalling him is the right thing to do.

And it is this very Democrat-created tragedy that is the biggest reason I expect the Modesto Tent Crusade to be different. The darkness and despair will itself be the catalyst for a fresh anointing and a raging river of miracles. The desperation of the people is why the power and presence will intensify. The cry of the people is reaching to the heavens.

A further reason it is going to be different is because of the workers. Psalm 110:3 says, “Your people shall be volunteers in the day of Your power…” Hundreds are lining up to work in the streets, in the neighborhoods, and in the tent. The groundswell of volunteers tells me this is the Day of God’s power!

These workers will join Frank Saldana and the army from Inner City Action on the streets. The workers are coming from everywhere. You can also volunteer! We will hit thousands of homes, bringing groceries and clothing, and we will minister in power to all of them.

To volunteer use this link.

The neighborhoods in Modesto where addiction and violence reign will be overwhelmed by this army of light and love. And because of our partners, we have more resources and supplies than ever! This will be the biggest invasion by far. But there is still more.

Every Saturday morning prior to the tent going up, hundreds, perhaps thousands, across America will jump on a Zoom Call to pray for the Modesto Crusade. Not only are we putting boots on the ground, we are sending up fervent prayer to the heavens.

But the most powerful promise that I have received from the Holy Spirit is this: Christ will be present in power like never before! That is what will make Modesto different. I cannot emphasize that too strongly. His presence will release miracle healing power like never before.

As I have said so often, we are the only movement in history where the Founder attends every meeting.

When even the most impossible cases walk into the tent, they will be healed and they will be delivered!

But the greatest reason I know that Modesto will be different, is embedded in these verses:

“And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him, ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was. Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well” (Mark 6: 54-56).

For reasons that transcend human persuasion, I know that the sense that Jesus will be in the tent is already creating excitement, a frenzy of action, and a profound sense of expectation. People are being told by the Spirit of God, Himself, “Jesus is the one and only reason to come to the tent and to bring every sick loved one that you can!”

Glory to God, Modesto will be different!

Here’s a special video message from Mario Murillo

STOP GUILTING CHRISTIANS INTO ACCEPTING JOE BIDEN.

They stood in their pulpits and insulted, rebuked, and rejected Donald Trump while he was President. Now they insist that you are not a good Christian unless you accept Joe Biden.

They are joining the ranks of Facebook and YouTube, calling for censorship and criminal charges against Christians who question the validity of Biden’s election.

These pastors were wrong before, and they are wrong now.

No one should be guilting Christians into accepting Joe Biden. And yes, there are sound Biblical reasons for rejecting him. 

But before I show you what the Bible instructs us to do in this situation, we need to address the biggest lie. The biggest lie says we need to accept the election and settle the issue of Biden’s presidency, once and for all, so that we can get back to normal and the nation can heal.

Let me ask you. How can we get back to normal while Biden is plunging the nation into chaos and glorifying things God hates? And how can we heal when, every day, Biden tears the nation apart with insulting rhetoric and inflammatory actions aimed at the Church? 

God and His Word tell us what to do about Biden. Luke 13:31-32, “At that very hour some Pharisees came up and said to Him, ‘Go away from here, for Herod is determined to kill You.’ And He said to them, ‘Go and tell that fox [sly and crafty, skulking and cowardly], Behold, I drive out demons and perform healings today and tomorrow, and on the third day I finish My course.’”

Herod had crossed a line that made it appropriate to label him a fox—a label that we will expand on later. But Jesus is loving. Why is He disrespecting the office of King by calling him names? And more importantly, why is He refusing to obey the King?
 

Albert Barnes said in his commentary, “Tell that fox—A fox is an emblem of slyness, of cunning, and of artful mischief. The word is also used to denote a dissembler. Herod was a wicked man, but the “particular thing” to which Jesus here alludes, is not his “vices,” but his “cunning, his artifice,” in endeavoring to remove (Jesus) out of his territory. (Herod) had endeavored to do it by stratagem – by sending these (Pharisees) who pretended great friendship for his life“” Behold, I cast out devils”—(Jesus is saying), Announce to him the fact that I am working miracles in his territory, and that I shall continue to do it. I am not afraid of his art or his enmity. I am engaged in My appropriate work, and shall continue to be, as long as is proper, in spite of his arts and his threats.

The American church must confront all the Leftist leaders: Biden, Harris, Newsom, Whitmer, and Cuomo, et al., the same way that Jesus confronted Herod. The American church must say, “You will not close our doors or stop the miracles of God that flow from our ministries!” 

Every American Christian must see that Biden is a puppet for a sinister cabal. He is the ailing mouthpiece of a dark and destructive agenda; an agenda that no Christian can support. 

Biden is a weak Herod, but a Herod, nonetheless. I could cite many examples, but here are just a few:

-He wants to make it a criminal act to question his election. He wants to label anyone who still believes that Trump won as homegrown terrorists and he wants to close down their businesses. Glenn Kirschner, a DOJ operative launched a campaign to force “every business in America” to take a pledge that states, in part, that “The 2020 presidential election was free and fair, and produced accurate, reliable results.” 

-He locks down Americans in the name of stopping infections, but he allows illegals who are sick with a new strain of Covid to freely enter and then roam our nation. Untold numbers of potentially sick people have been released into our communities. 

-Here is a list of his goals: to use tax money to fund abortions, up to, and after birth; eliminate capital punishment; confiscate firearms and shut down gun manufacturers; defund the police; pay reparations to African-Americans; raise taxes up to 70%; push the green agenda, close down coal and oil projects, spend trillions on ‘clean energy’, and increase the national debt; stop building the wall at the border and give billions to illegals; allow them to vote; pack the courts; change voter laws; eliminate the Electoral College; undo all that Trump accomplished; divide Israel and Jerusalem into two nations; give billions to Palestinians; reinstate the Iran Nuclear deal; allow transgenders in the military and in women’s sports; allow transgender men into women’s restrooms and locker rooms; support gay marriage; legalize hard drugs; alter international trade agreements so they favor other nations and drive businesses out of America overseas; expand Obama-care; force religious organizations to hire LGBTQs; tax churches; brainwash students; persecute the church; demand vaccination passports; and many, many more failed and dangerous policies.

Biden’s actions reside outside the law of man and God. Therefore, we must relate to him as a rogue president, and we must therefore relate to God as our Leader at this moment. 

And we must continue the work of God, without interruption―no matter what.  Now you know why we must stop guilting Christians into accepting Joe Biden.

We found a way to both do that and win souls. As you can imagine, a blog with this much traffic can sell advertising—something we refuse to do. What we do, is offer you materials that are chosen because they can make you armed and dangerous for Christ. The proceeds from the book and flash drive go to soul winning.

Some are offended that we offer books at all. We hope they will try to understand the two-fold blessing of offering this material. Thank you.

PRAY FOR MODESTO!

I ASKED GOD IF AMERICA WOULD BE DESTROYED. THE ANSWER SHOCKED ME.

I was aware that I might be breaking the rules by even asking. It was like asking a wife if she forgives the husband who is still with the other woman, with no sign that he will ever repent, or return.

This is not what we should be doing. I had no business doing it. Instead, I should have been repenting on behalf of America. We should all be praying and fasting like Daniel did when he said:

“As it is written in the Law of Moses, all this disaster has come upon us; yet we have not made our prayer before the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities and understand Your truth. Therefore, the Lord has kept the disaster in mind and brought it upon us; for the Lord our God is righteous in all the works which He does, though we have not obeyed His voice. And now, O Lord our God, who brought Your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and made Yourself a name, as it is this day—we have sinned, we have done wickedly!” (Daniel 9:13-15).

Note that even though Daniel knew he was innocent of these heinous crimes, he interceded for his nation. And God heard him over the vast and loud wickedness of Israel. That is stunning!

The promise in James 5:16 is true, “…the effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

Nevertheless, I gave in to the temptation to ask God if America would be destroyed. As soon as I did, I knew I had no right to an answer. BUT I GOT ONE ANYWAY, AND THE ANSWER SHOCKED ME!

The good news is that God is going to save America from destruction. Also, the bad news is that God is going to save America from destruction.

How can the news that God is going to save America be bad news? You’d better be sitting down when you hear the answer.

The answer is the terrifying things God will allow to happen to bring us to repentance. Just because it is not destruction, does not mean it will not be painful. Think about the implications―it means that calamities will come to whatever extent God decides is necessary for the survival of the nation.

Please read these key points.

1. His calamities will begin at the house of God. 1 Peter 4:17, “For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?”

To keep America from being destroyed, the Lord is willing to uproot the churches that have been built by human marketing. He is willing to rain down judgment on ministries that have perverted His purposes for the Church. Those who have led the sheep of God into false doctrines and false goals. He is willing to drag their secret sins out into public shame. He could strike them down, even while they are standing in the pulpit, if the only alternative is the death of America.

The day can come where it is said that flashy, fleshly preachers were repeatedly warned–but now it is too late.

Moreover, believers must understand that God is willing to go on without us. He may totally disqualify a generation of American believers, if they threaten the survival of America.

Look at 1 Corinthians 10:1-5, “Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ. But with most of them God was not well pleased, for their bodies were scattered in the wilderness.”

It is the next verse, verse 6, that is chilling: “Now these things became our examples, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.” How can this event in Israel be an example, unless it means the possibility exists that we can suffer the same fate?

2. God is willing to topple the wealth of America and humble her before the world, in order to save her―before all the barons of social media and technology whose hearts are set on selling us to China. But Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey and Jeff Bezos have something else in common. They have taken upon themselves to encroach upon the authority of God and have made themselves the enemies of the Church. They are not safe from His wrath, which could come in an instant.

“Then (Jesus) spoke a parable to them, saying: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully. And he thought within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no room to store my crops?’ So, he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods. And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.”’ But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?’” (Luke 12:16-20).
 
3. Even nature and the land will rise up against us. Then the king of Assyria brought people from Babylon, Cuthah, Ava, Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and placed them in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel; and they took possession of Samaria and dwelt in its cities. And it was so, at the beginning of their dwelling there, that they did not fear the LORD; therefore, the LORD sent lions among them, which killed some of them” (2 Kings 17:24-25).
But our Bible passage tells us something about these new people who were brought into the land: they did not fear the LORD; therefore, “the LORD sent lions among them.” When the Israelites were conquered and could not defend the land, God supernaturally defended it, and “the LORD sent lions among them” to do it!
This shows that there was not only something special about the kingdom of Israel, but also something special about the land of Israel. Likewise, America is a land of covenant. The very first settlement in America made that covenant, and it is so strong that even the land will rise up against those who would destroy America.

But God is holding out a promise of great revival that will prevent these disasters from coming upon us.
Here is the last point God gave me:

4: The strategies and tactics for taking America back are being released from heaven to a special core.  God does not want to take these extreme steps if moral awakening can come through the Church.Just as Daniel could stay the disaster upon Israel by fervent prayer and fasting—just as Ezra could pray in front of masses of compromised Jews and cause them to turn—just as John the Baptist could prepare a generation for Christ—just so, we, as the remnant, can be the firewall.
A remnant is forming for just one purpose: To snatch America back from the jaws of death. They are converging around the throne of God. They are shaking off lesser living and lesser purposes. They are described in these verses, “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.” (2 Timothy 2:20-21).
Hear me! Not only can you be prepared for a good work, but for the greatest work that any generation of Americans has ever been called to do—to be used of God to turn America away from destruction!

WHY? PUNISHING ON-FIRE BELIEVERS, WHILE CATERING TO THE LUKEWARM

It is unbelievable. No sooner is the pandemic fading, than churches are falling into a terrible habit: punishing those who are on fire for God and catering to the lukewarm!

As soon as someone raises their hands in worship, an usher runs over to stop them, like they’re putting out a fire.  If you get a little boisterous, you are immediately shushed, because, “People who we are trying to attract might be offended.”

If you share with others that you are hungry for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, you are suddenly marginalized and asked to worship somewhere else.

This is happening far more often than we want to admit.  It is the tragic result of church-growth seminars, where pastors were trained to eject those who want a move of God.

But a growing number of Christians feel their church is doing a lot of things that are not scriptural and that do not matter.  They believe only a move of God can save us now.

They believe we have no time to play games.  They are frustrated that churches are catering to the lukewarm members.  Most of all, they feel that they are being punished for wanting an outpouring of the Spirit of God.

I want to address those leaders who are guilty of these tactics. You have gotten things totally backwards.  Those who are hungry for a move of God are the best thing that ever happened to your church!

If you have wounded the heart of a single hungry saint—you have made a spectacular mistake.  It is the fiery believer, and not the lukewarm pew-warmer, who should be setting the tone for your church.

The mega-church growth experts call exuberant worship, preaching with unction, fiery prayer meetings, and deliberate soulwinning the “old fashioned ways.” But they are not old fashioned, they are timeless ways.  In fact, they transcend time.  They are the weapons the Holy Spirit has always chosen.

The best people in the church love 2 Chronicles 7:14 which says, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land,” and they quote it, often.

They yearn for the miracle that will stop America’s slide toward oblivion—they wish for an act of the Holy Spirit so real and widespread that it impacts crime, injustice, addiction, and despair.

You may be punishing the very people God is stirring.  Don’t you fear God? Would you put out a flame that God lit in their heart?

I think I know the biggest reason you may be punishing people who seek revival―it is that you doubt it will happen.  You doubt it is for today.  Listen carefully to me: not only can God do it, but the fact that your people are being stirred, is a sign that God is stirring up revival fire.

Here is the verse that forever killed my doubts about revival:  Matthew 12:20, “A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench, until He sends forth justice to victory.”

Jesus is not going to put out any fire, no matter how insignificant it looks, until justice is victorious.

When anyone asks for revival from a pure heart, God says, “Yes.” And then begins the process. He takes you at your word.  

When can we know that a revival has started?  I got my answer one day at the beach when the tide was out.  White foam was gently lapping at my toes, and the still small voice of the Lord spoke to me, “No matter how small that wave is, it is an ocean wave.  It is a relative of the tsunami.”  

Yes, and a tidal wave can travel at 500 miles per hour, yet it is still nothing but an ocean wave, only larger.

The smallest flame in the smallest church will not be quenched by Jesus.  Given the proper opportunity, the Spirit of God will fan it into a raging fire of righteousness.  The gentlest wave can grow into a tidal wave when anyone simply welcomes God’s presence, obeys His step-by-step orders, and refuses to abuse what God is doing among them.

And the first time you cry out for America to be saved, God will take you at your word and start a revival fire in you. Look at past revivals: the first syllable that was spoken in prayer for revival at any gathering where Christians prayed, began the revival.  The first time a pastor told his people how much we need revival, the spark was ignited.

The job now is to cooperate with God for bigger and bigger and bigger waves.  The tide rises as the revival core pays the price of obedience.   If they keep to the intention of the revival, it will intensify.  If they refuse to operate in the flesh, refuse to rely on those teachings that seem right in the eyes of men, and reject the ways of Baal, the waves will continue to come, in faithful and ever-increasing power.

How else can I say it?  You are a revival-starter, simply by wanting more of Jesus. The first step is to stop punishing those wonderful people who are hungry for the Holy Spirit to fall on your church!

IT IS LIKE TEACHING YOUR YOUNG SON TO SMOKE DOPE

I remember it like it was yesterday. I could smell marijuana smoke. I looked over the fence into the yard of my neighbor, Sam, because the smoke was coming from his back porch. Sam was teaching his thirteen-year-old son how to light up and smoke dope.

It was not hard for him to interpret my glare. He defensively explained that he didn’t want to lose his son—that it is “better that he does it at home with me, than behind my back.”

Apparently, sitting his son down and explaining why it was dangerous and stupid to get stoned, was not an option. But, he was not saving his son—he was destroying him.

In the same way, a prominent Evangelical ‘scholar’ explained why—even after he and his group called ‘Pro-life Evangelicals for Biden’, were used and lied to—he still supports Biden, because, he admits, he doesn’t want to lose the kids!

He said there are “many younger evangelicals who are not happy about … the way in which their parents and grandparents have endorsed and defended the Trump administration. We … don’t want to lose them to evangelicalism because of what is perceived as mean-spirited, highly partisan commitment on the part of the older generation of evangelicals.” Wait, what?

How is what he is doing any better than what my neighbor Sam was doing?  He is saying, the younger generation must not be lost! So, what is his plan for keeping them? ‘Let them smoke wokeness’ and, worse still, ‘let’s smoke it with them.’

So we should smoke woke with them because we are afraid of losing them?

Really!? Sell their souls to Biden? Expose them to the toxic fumes of radical abortion—the heresy of multiple genders—bending to Red China—heaping massive debt—seizing guns—censorship—racism and victimhood—because these poor, innocent youngsters are offended by Trump’s tweets? Forgive me, but where is the adult in the room? The Christian adult!

Millennials must not be classified as some exotic new human species that must be excused from correction and common sense. That is the greatest insult—and the purest form of hatred.

“Discipline your children while there is hope. Otherwise, you will destroy their lives” (Proverbs 19:18).

I stood before 2,000 youth at a Christian college. I said, “If you are not careful you are going to be the most boring old people America has ever known. If you look in my smart phone you will see pictures of people being saved and healed. If I were to look in most of your smart phones, what would I see, pictures of food?

“Imagine years from now, showing those pictures to your grandchildren. “Grandpa, what is this a picture of?” And you sheepishly answer, “Well, that was my breakfast.” And then they will ask, “Why are there 17 pictures of grandma in front of a mirror that are all exactly the same?””

Believe it or not, these young men and women did not race to a safe place or assume the fetal position. They laughed. They reacted the way young people have for generations. Why? Because we forgot the obvious. Because in our zeal to prove they are different, we have forgotten they are just the same as the youth of every generation. Scared and teachable.

If this prominent evangelical were right, millennials would not be crowding the front of our tent to be saved. They can take the truth. More of them than you realize are ready to hear the other side of the story—the story about America’s decency, and the good things this nation has done in history.

It is the professors who have changed. It is the villains who have changed. It is the Democrat Party that has changed.  And I do not care who this offends: if we do not want to lose them, we must risk losing them by speaking the truth, in love!

Dear Christian professor…so what if you keep them Christian by letting them support Biden? What happens down the road when they read about Hell in the Bible? And, yes, when you quit preaching anything that you are afraid might cause you to lose them, where will it end?

When I get a chance to reason with youth, many of them wake up out of wokeness.  Catch phrases die after they are challenged to check their validity. When they spout stuff about Trump, I challenge them to show me, “When did he say that?” They are even able to handle the fact that I am working and praying for Trump to be back in the White House.

I know when it is time to preach Christ and leave Trump and Republicanism out. I also know when it is time to confront a generation that has too much at stake to be coddled, hoodwinked, and appeased.

Stop smoking dope with them. Love them enough to tell them the truth, and do not destroy them!

IS THE PROPHETIC MOVEMENT FUMBLING THE BALL AT THE GOAL LINE?

Because of the pandemic, the prophetic movement woke up to its true calling after years of living in a bubble. The pandemic was sobering, and the leftist takeover of America was a rude awakening. But the good thing was that prophets began to actually be prophets—speaking truth to power; calling the church to repent; and confronting evil government in a unified resistance.

Leaders of churches rightfully sued the government for banning worship services. Intercessors and seers rightfully instructed the church that their political neutrality and political ignorance led to the stealing of an election and the ongoing dismantling of our freedoms.

We began to understand how to contact our congressmen and how to expose the stream of lies from the media. We started praying and obeying. We did not just sing, “There’s an army rising up,” we became that army.

Most of all, the prophetic movement began to realize that they were raised up for this very moment—not to use prophecy as entertainment but as a weapon to expose devils, tear down strongholds and rebuke the politicians, professors, and celebrities who were plunging America into immorality.

In the bubble of the good times the prophetic movement got away with indulgences. Too many “words from the Lord” were simple flattery. Teachers relating stories that were nothing short of out-of-Bible experiences. A virtual reality dominated our terminology and our conferences. Artificial weapons and tactics replaced Biblical doctrine. We saw the prophetic beginning to fire blanks.

 Now, that the nation is starting to reopen, the prophetic movement is being tempted back into those powerless old ways. In fact, I believe that religious spirits are preying on our nostalgic yearning for the good old day—days that we now know were a fantasy.

Voices are dusting off the old, tired platitude that we should not be involved in politics. We are starting to hear the worn-out message of how entitled we are to God’s protection. Just when we were finally ready to do the right thing, the enemy is trying to intimidate us, and lure us off the frontline.

But if we relapse, the movement will become worse than ever. Because this time we will indulge in compromise and imbalance with our eyes wide open, fully conscious of our mistake.

It is not by accident that the enemy is doing this now. Because today wokeness reached critical mass. When Major League Baseball, Coca Cola, and American Airlines asserted that requiring identification to vote is racist, removed any excuse for neutrality. They have fully declared war on this nation, you, your children, your church, and your God.

As Andrew McCarthy so efficiently put it: “The Left ruins everything. Sports, entertainment, toys, snack cakes, you name it. Their wokeness is a cancer, and it’s taking every enjoyable, unifying, non-political piece of American life and destroying it. In Georgia, their crusade against the state’s election law is built on a house of lies.” 

We must fight off the religious spirit that wants to believe the storm has passed when the real storm has just arrived.

What does God want? I am convinced that we are to engage our time and energy on two imperatives:

1. Political and moral action: To organize and educate ourselves on how to terrify national Democrat leaders, how to win local elections, and train our people to know why they believe what they believe, and why they believe it. This means that the pulpit must take on abortion, gay marriage, transgender indoctrination of our children, and yes, racism—the racism of the Left that is turning minorities into victims.

2. Win souls with signs and wonders. Our California crusades have already proven that millions want Jesus. God has also demonstrated that He will heal the sick and give us notable miracles. Converting Americans is the surest way to transform the moral and political darkness in America.

This is our greatest hour. This movement can become the lightning America needs right now. We must not become weary in well doing. Let us not fumble the ball at the one-yard line!
