THE CHURCH IS WASTING THE GREATEST OPEN DOOR I HAVE EVER SEEN

Demonstrators are about to hold a massive rally in Washington D.C. Maybe one million people. This gathering will flagrantly violate the current pandemic orders. You can count on it, the protest will take place, but there will not be a single arrest made.

Meanwhile, the church stays virtually out of sight, in order to comply with rules that are nothing but a farce, pure and simple. I have never seen so many American Christians being slapped around like this.

Yet, in spite of all of this madness—and as impossible as it may seem—there is a door that has opened. There is, in fact, something earth-shaking that we can do. We are sitting on an opportunity so astounding that it could define the church in a way we have not seen since the Jesus Movement.

What we need to do is stage a rally—a rally with at least 100,000 believers. What a statement we could make! The most amazing part about this idea is how completely doable it is.

I know of just 10 ministries who, with a little backbone, and just a few phone calls, could put together such a rally within a few weeks.

And, ahem, what about you wealthy Christian artists who have taken home a boatload of money from concerts? Why not give something back? Why not use the fame God has given you to muster legions of believers to a righteous cause? Not only can we do this rally, I believe it is a matter of life and death that we do it. Evil has made it’s statement. What about us?

Sadly, even as I propose this, I am convinced these ministries will never listen to me. I am just that ‘crazy evangelist.’ But I didn’t write this because I thought they would listen—I wrote this because God told me to write it. I will leave the outcome in His hands, trusting Him to let this fall into the right hands.

Let me answer all detractors.

-If you say we shouldn’t stage this event because it is against the law: It is the shutdown of the church that was against the law, in spite of what Chief Justice John Roberts said. Anyway, at this point, with all the protests, the rules that define all the hoops churches must jump through, just to meet on Sunday, are ludicrous.

The recent demonstrations taking place all over the nation prove the shutdown was bogus. Now, we, the church, must let go of fear—we must challenge this double- standard with a rally of our own. Let’s invoke the Constitution, not the criminal edicts of rogue governors in blue states.

God has people everywhere, even in the highest level of State Governments. Surely, someone reading this is in government, and has the clout to get this rally off the ground.

-If you say that our actions will be misunderstood, then you are not thinking it through: No matter what the church does, or has ever done, misunderstanding is unavoidable. Later in this blog, I will lay out what I believe needs to be said at the rally. We need to have a different message than the one everyone else is chanting.

-The government will shut us down, and some of us might get arrested. Yeah, and how would that look?  MAYBE IT’S WHAT AMERICA NEEDS TO SEE! That would be the visual the leftists can’t risk playing out on the evening news. That is why I know we will not be arrested and we will not be stopped.

Deal with it! It is not the government, the media or even the devil that is holding the church back, at this point—it is our own fears.  We didn’t used to scare this easy. We have an American legacy for rallies. Below is the picture of Billy Graham speaking to well over 150,000 people in Times Square New York City.

So, what shall we say at the rally? First, I will tell you what we should never say:

We should not waste time repenting of ‘white privilege.’ Leaders who do that, look ridiculous. Leave that repentance to those who are truly racist. If we take the race route, we will just become background noise. We need to tell America something they don’t already know.

A vast number of rational people believe that “white privilege” is itself a racist term. Those who avidly believe in white privilege will never accept your apology, anyway. To conservatives, you’ll come off like a grandstanding buffoon. To the Left, you are just feeding them a sound-bite that will be used against you, later.

We should not pontificate about our nation’s historical sins.  This is not a time to impress America with how “woke” you are, neither about history nor the evils that have been done by our ancestors. Again, that is just tedious droning.

We should not offer the tired platitude that: “while we hate the sin, we love the sinner.” Why squander valuable time reassuring people that we are nice?

And what is the big reason we should avoid all of these subjects?  It is that they are merely attempts at making us look good. They do not glorify God.

What then should we say at this rally?

1. A prayer. We should offer a prayer of repentance to God and not to man. The church with one voice should cry out to God for mercy. We should ask the Lord to hear our cry above the noise of the wickedness of violence, perversion, atheism, the betrayal of lukewarm believers, and the division that exists among denominations.

2. A declaration. One that says “justice can only come through the love of God.” We should declare the words of Martin Luther King: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

And that takes us directly to the final message.

3. We need to tell them that Jesus died on the Cross for them. Ever since we quit mentioning the Cross, we have lost power and influence among Americans. The message that Christ died for us all, softens the hearts of many who are argumentative about God. The devil has convinced us that we dare not mention the Cross. What a lie! It is the Cross that touches hearts. It is the Cross that proves Black Lives Matter.

Spurgeon said this: “Men stand out against the law of God, and defy the vengeance of God; but the love of God in Christ Jesus disarms them. The Holy Spirit causes men to yield through the softening influence of the Cross. A bleeding Savior makes men throw down their weapons of rebellion. ‘If he loves me so,’ they say, ‘I cannot do other than love him in return.’”

If we could resist the temptation to wander into the swamp of guilt and liberalism, we could simply make the case for God’s power. We would then overcome the enemy by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of our testimony.

Time is running out. If the church does nothing, we are on a slippery slope from which there is no recovery. Somebody who has the chops to do this: please obey God, before it is too late. As John Adams once said, “Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.”

AMERICA ON FIRE

Officer Derek Chauvin put his knee on George Floyd’s neck, and kept it there for seven minutes. Mr. Floyd died begging for his life. This time there is no doubt. There is no back story. There is no excuse. It was murder, pure and simple. This is the flagrant abuse of power we fear most. The video will sear the conscience of America as long as there is an America.

Despair makes you set fire to your own neighborhood. Rage answers lawlessness with more lawlessness. Rioters have destroyed black-owned businesses—businesses the owners spent a life-time building.

The looters don’t want justice, they want free stuff—and many of them are white. Violent protesters aren’t honoring George Floyd’s memory. They are adding pain and grief—especially to the family George Floyd left behind.

 

Why is all of this happening to America? David Wilkerson didn’t just see New York City shutdown in one hour in his vision that many say predicted the virus. He also saw 1,000 fires burning in New York at one time. Are these riots all across America that next thing he saw?

I hated to feel it. I hated knowing I was right. I was haunted by a conviction that the pandemic and the collapse of our economy was not the end of our misery in 2020.  Too many of the videos that I saw which were produced by Christians, confirmed my deepest dread. Most ministries did not see any need to change their message—or discard the carnal and manmade doctrines and traditions. Repentance was hard to find, and the little there was, was mostly shallow rhetoric.

Christian music should have turned away from materialism and entertainment during the pandemic. Instead, the lead singer of a well-known worship band publicly announced he no longer believes in Jesus.

They were singing the same songs, speaking the same company-line, with little remorse, and even less soul searching. What should have been a catalyst to crying out to God for cleansing and mercy, became nothing more than a bothersome interruption. We held on to our sin, and rather than allowing God to remove it, many ministers just decided to ride it out.

We have refused correction. Jeremiah 5:3, “O Lord, are not Your eyes on the truth? You have stricken them, but they have not grieved; You have consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction. They have made their faces harder than rock; they have refused to return.”

The last thing the church should ever tell God is that the adversity He sent was not enough to change her. God did not send the virus, but He is God, and He can use anything to bring about His own plans. But I don’t believe it achieved His desired end—which was to wake up His church.

 

God warned Israel about rejecting His early dealings—warning that harsher measures could follow.

The Lord also spoke to me again, saying: Inasmuch as these people refused the waters of Shiloh that flow softly…now therefore, behold, the Lord brings up over them the waters of the River, strong and mighty—the king of Assyria and all his glory; he will go up over all his channels and go over all his banks (Isaiah 4:5-7).

If Christian apathy has survived the pandemic, imagine what is happening out in the world. If the church has not been moved to repentance, then what is happening to the culture? America has voted devils into State Houses, and they have shut down the Church. America is shaking her fist at God in wickedness and defiance. Liars control virtually every bastion of our media and information.

Some will read this blog and reject my message. I say to them: Listen to yourself! Listen to what you are defending. Listen to why this makes you angry. Shouldn’t you even consider that America is on track for as much trouble as it takes for God to save it?

Yet in all of this, there is good news. A core of godly praying people are standing between heaven and earth in intercession and repentance. There are preachers who are openly rejecting the criminal limitations that are being placed on their church. There are heroes rising up, and their numbers are growing every day.

Tomorrow, the Spirit will fall in a modern Day of Pentecost, in every house that defies the oppression of evildoers. Satan timed this in an attempt to discourage the core of believers and to dissuade the faithful from pressing into revival.

It is a time of both great darkness and great light. It is a time when the Army of God will find their full authority and might—even as evil plunges the world into blackness. It is time for us to arise, and shine!

Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. The nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising (Isaiah 60:1-3).

Vessels of Fire and Glory

Vessels of Fire and Glory is Mario’s newest book. It reached number one on Amazon among all Spirit-filled books. John Kilpatrick who led the Pensacola Revival said this after he read Vessels of Fire and Glory: “As I read the manuscript for Mario Murillo’s new book, Vessels of Fire and Glory, I said to myself, “Finally!” Mario has measured the church and the nation in this season and did not hold anything back. His honesty is like the sun rising inside a dark cave. This release is a paradox—it is sobering and refreshing; it is symptoms and the cure. I believe this revivalist has penned a treatise that should be in the hands of all who lead the work of God.”

 Edgewise

Here is a book about the end times with a totally different approach. It does not focus on how the world will end but on how to live as the curtain comes down on humanity. Powerful, practical, and encouraging.

Critical Mass

Critical Mass is the best-selling book Mario Murillo has ever written. It has been acclaimed as a classic on how to pray for, surrender to, and sustain revival. It is required reading in many colleges and training centers.
