Worldwide Prayer Alert

Tonight a new era begins.  Tonight something happens that carries a real and present hope for our nation and the world.  As America hangs in the balance…God will stretch out His mighty hand.  Tonight it all comes down to God who will display His power in the eyes of politicians, educators, law enforcement and the forgotten people of the inner city.

Tonight a new era begins.  Tonight something happens that carries a real and present hope for our nation and the world.  As America hangs in the balance…God will stretch out His mighty hand.  Tonight it all comes down to God who will display His power in the eyes of politicians, educators, law enforcement and the forgotten people of the inner city.

25,000 cards of invitation went to gang members, addicts, and students in the public schools.  7 talk shows have showcased this night. Not one mean street has been untouched.  Not one at-risk young person has been overlooked.  The eyes of a whole city are asking…can this be the answer we have longed for?  An entire city is holding its breath for hope in the midst of violence and division.

Will love take on muscle? Will this be a collision of the mothers of sons killed in street warfare taking a stand—the leaders of the community unifying—the Body of Christ assuming her rightful place in the battle, and the Gospel being declared in power?

The seed is sown.  The ground has been watered.  The incalculable sacrifice to bring this project to birth has been given.  Everything is in place—it is time to pray!  I must implore you to pray.  Pray as if this was your own city—yea, your own neighborhood!

It all comes down to this wonder of wonders that God has given us: The power to go before His throne and make our needs known.  This holy privilege—this mighty weapon…do we dare pass up the honor of pleading for eternal souls?

This is not the first time I have begged the Christian family to pray, but this time I am asking as if it were the last time I ever will.  NOW OR NEVER is written on the forehead of the United States.  Who cares where the miracle begins so long as it begins?  Who cares who gets the credit so long as God gets all of the Glory?

In a few hours I will step out on the stage of the Harvey Auditorium in Bakersfield, California.  With your prayers, I know God will go with me.  Jesus will make a personal appearance and demonstrate His unstoppable power to save, deliver and heal.

Pray that nothing stops lost souls from coming tonight.  Pray for special protection.  Pray for every aspect of this event to be crowned with power, order and love.  Pray for pastors to unify.  Pray for community leaders to surrender to Christ.  Pray for the fuse of national revival to be lit.

If you live near Bakersfield, make your way now to this historic event.  Bring someone who needs living proof of the power of Jesus to save and heal.

No matter what—at the very least—pray!

HERE’S THE REAL REASON THE LEFT HATES US

Mario Murillo examines and exposes the real reason that the left hates us and why they are on a rampage against us.

HERE’S THE REAL REASON THE LEFT HATES US

By Mario Murillo

The Democratic Party claims to be the party of the poor.  Who can deny that virtually every political office in our most decrepit cites is held by Democrats.

They own the ghetto.   They controlled the government money that poured into the slums.  The human tragedy in the inner city is their science experiment.    The killing fields of Chicago are their debacle.  Speaking of cities…

August 6,1945 was a tale of two cities: Detroit and Hiroshima.  On that day, one was destroyed and the other remained a gleaming, prospering city.  Today, the roles are reversed.

Liberalism run amok, addictive handouts doled out by a criminal enterprise combined to kill natural incentive in the heart of Detroit.

Do you know what a Ponzi scheme is?  Named for Charles Ponzi, it is a form of fraud in which belief in the success of a nonexistent enterprise is fostered by the payment of quick returns to the first investors from money invested by later investors.

Trillions of dollars later, we must admit that the Democratic Party has supervised the largest Ponzi scheme in history.  It is a scheme that can only survive by deflecting blame and distracting from its obvious failure.

If we had given the money directly to the people of Detroit, every citizen would have obtained hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Liberals continue to believe we need to give Detroit more money—we need to tax the rich!  We currently tax corporations at the highest rate in the world!

Liberals still blame racism.  But what could be more racist than to force feed a mindset of victimization and helplessness?  Democrats keep an illusion alive to stay in power.  The poor are their workforce.  The images of their suffering are Democratic photo ops.  Is this the new plantation?  If so, then who are the real racists?

Can you understand why some say leftist ideology is more destructive than a nuclear bomb?

We almost had a president Hillary.  Many have cited reasons why she would have been a disaster—but they have overlooked the most devastating proof:  She spent $1.2 billion—the most in history—on a failed campaign.  Trump spent less than 250 million.  What would she spend on other failed ventures as president?

Now the left is hell-bent on destroying Donald Trump.  What has he done?  Trump cut the US Debt by $68 billion and gained 235,000 new jobs in his first month as president!

The left says Trump is a disaster.  He is a disaster to them because Trump is exposing the lie that keeps them in power–the lie they use to keep us weak and divided.

George Soros is funding destruction because he hates America.  Obama is stoned on his own celebrity and must do all he can to bring Trump down.  The left has morphed into a by-whatever-means-necessary terror cell.  The left is so hate-filled that all sense of decency, open debate, accountability and reason are out the window.

The uppity left in the ivy halls, the button-down collars, hide their radicalism by granting tacit approval to rioters.  The media left have faked news so long that they now don’t remember the truth.  Protestors openly attack free speech and admit that they want to erase our right to disagree.

Women’s groups can be pro-Islam and never notice the glaring contradiction—because the target is white Christians and Jews.  In the mind of the left…”my enemy’s enemy is my friend.”

A strong America will end their dreams of herding us—whimpering and downcast—into a global village.  A vibrant church full of love and good works would end their monopoly on the poor.

God bless America hits them like daylight to Dracula.  Why?  Because a moral reformation would consign the bankrupt anti-God movement to its proper resting place—the dust bin of history.  That is why they hate us

 

Donald Trump: Working to improve the lives of people who hate him

Donald Trump is working to improve the lives of those who hate him.  He is working to make life better for every demographic group that is calling for his removal and even his death.

Donald Trump: Working to improve the lives of people who hate him

Donald Trump is working to improve the lives of those who hate him.  He is working to make life better for every demographic group that is calling for his removal and even his death.

Even though only 8% of blacks voted for him and many black leaders vilify him, he is working to reduce crime, fix crumbling streets and buildings and bring real jobs and real hope to the inner city…I can see why you hate him.

He is working to improve the lives of women.  He built a multi-billion-dollar empire on a system of merit that promoted men and women equally.  He wants to make the workplace family friendly with maternity leaves that are stronger than our current federal law.

He wants to get government off the back of small business—women are the fastest growing group of small business owners.  I can see why women don stupid hats and cuss him out and call him Hitler.

Donald Trump is working for the native people of America.  No, the pipeline from Canada will not go through your burial grounds.  The president wants to make us energy independent so our enemies cannot turn our nation into a burial ground.

The President is working for the environmentalists who hate him.  Everyone knows the future is in renewable energy but we need a bridge to that future.  They remind me of the new-age midwives who want women to give birth cold-turkey just to feel all the pain. Environmentalists want to shut down all fossil fuels and create calamity for the rest of us—especially poor people.

These elitist environmentalists don’t have to drive a semi to feed their family.  They will fly around in private jets polluting the air while they lecture they poor fighting to get to work in the only car they can afford.  Refusing to build this bridge to renewable energy is a great way to kill the mother and the baby.

He is working for the poor by securing our borders.  When a criminal or a terrorist enters our country where do they go?  They immediately set up shop in the inner city.  They take the jobs from those who need them most—they plan their mischief in the ghetto.  I can see why Americans hate Trump…he is putting them first.

When will you wake up from your liberal media induced coma?  Obama had eight years to make black lives matter in Chicago.  He could have sent in the national guard and stopped the killing.  He was more concerned about Syrian refugees than you—I can see why you love him.

To the overwhelming number of millennials who live in your parent’s basement: I can see why you love Obama, he was more militant about putting men in women’s restrooms that he was about putting you in a real career.

And finally, to all of you celebrity Pastors still afraid of support Trump because he is not “pastor” material, let me say this: Would you stay in a church where half of the people lied about you every day and wanted you out.  Would you—knowing there were greener pastures, a bigger church with a higher salary and more adulation—stay and serve?

Government work?  Trump didn’t need it.  But tell me, where else could Obama have gone?  Can you see Barack trying to build a business in New York City?  He couldn’t do anything but government…and, in my opinion, he was deplorable in government—buttressed by the fantasies of the liberal left.

With all bias against him and the massive unfairness heaped on him…Trump still wants to make America great.  How easily—Mr. celebrity pastor—could Trump say, “the heck with all this, I don’t need this for me and my family.

There are many areas Donald Trump needs to grow spiritually but in one area he has zoomed ahead of most preachers: Matthew 5: 44 “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you…”

Here’s a list of what Trump did in just 60 minutes as president

In case you are wondering if Trump will keep his promises…

 

In the first hour as president he did the following:

He rolled back an 11th-hour Obama administration rule that lowered home borrowers’ mortgage insurance costs.

The Federal Housing Authority uses that money to underwrite banks when low-income – and therefore high-risk – borrowers default on their loans.

Republicans argue that unless the FHA has significant cash reserves, all taxpayers including those with no stake in the housing market would be forced to pay for bailouts.

This happened in 2013, when the FHA required a $1.7 billion taxpayer cash infusion to keep going.

Back at the White House before a string of three inaugural balls, the new president inked formal commissions for a pair of retired Marine Corps general whom the U.S. Senate confirmed in their new cabinet roles.

Vice President Mike Pence swore them both in immediately.

Retired Gen. James Mattis is now the U.S. secretary of Defense. Retired Gen. John Kelly is secretary of Homeland Security.

Just as consequential were a pair of orders marking the Trump administration’s first firepower volley against Obamacare and signaling a massive, government-wide regulatory freeze.

The Obamacare executive order directs government departments and administrators to limit the cost of complying with the Affordable Care Act in every way possible while preparing for a Republican-dominated Congress to repeal and replace the law.

The regulatory memo, in the form of a memorandum from White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, orders federal agencies to cancel new regulations that haven’t yet been officially published and to delay for 60 days all those that are in place but haven’t yet taken effect.

It also orders bureaucrats to stop submitting most new regulations without first seeking White House approval.

Trump pledged during his campaign that he would pare back the American regulatory state in order to liberate the financial, energy and manufacturing sectors.

He also vowed to eliminate two federal regulations for every new one that takes effect.

 

LOOK AT WHAT TRUMP HAS JUST DONE ABOUT OBAMACARE

President Donald Trump directed government agencies on Friday to freeze regulations and take steps to weaken Obamacare, using his first hours in the White House to make good on a campaign promise to start dismantling his predecessor’s healthcare law.

By Jeff Mason and Roberta Rampton | WASHINGTON

President Donald Trump directed government agencies on Friday to freeze regulations and take steps to weaken Obamacare, using his first hours in the White House to make good on a campaign promise to start dismantling his predecessor’s healthcare law.

Heading into the Oval Office shortly after the conclusion of his inaugural parade, Trump signed an order on the Affordable Care Act that urged government departments to “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation” of provisions that imposed fiscal burdens on states, companies or individuals.

It also called for efforts to give states greater flexibility in implementing healthcare programs while developing “a free and open market in interstate commerce for the offering of healthcare services and health insurance.”

Health experts had speculated that Trump could expand exemptions from the so-called individual mandate, which requires Americans to carry insurance or face a penalty, or the requirement that employers offer coverage.

Experts also believe the administration could try to reduce the “essential benefits,” such as maternity care and mental health services, that insurance plans must cover.

The White House did not provide further details about the executive order.

Trump’s spokesman Sean Spicer said the White House also directed an immediate regulatory freeze for all government agencies in a memo from Trump’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus. He did not offer details.

Repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, one of former President Barack Obama’s signature laws, was a central pledge for Trump during the presidential election campaign. Republicans in the U.S. Congress have not yet laid out a plan to recast the insurance program.

In a hastily arranged ceremony, surrounded by some of his aides, Trump sat behind the presidential Resolute Desk and signed the order. He also signed commissions for his newly confirmed defense secretary, James Mattis, and his homeland security secretary, John Kelly.

Trump spoke briefly about his day with reporters. “It was busy, but good. It was a beautiful day,” he said.

 

LEGACY? WHAT LEGACY?

No president has written a farewell speech that focused entirely on their legacy.  Nothing says colossal failure more than this…

 

Legacy? What Legacy?

By Mario Murillo

At this moment, Obama is drafting his legacy for a farewell speech in Chicago on January 10th.  No president has written a farewell speech that focused entirely on their legacy. Nothing says colossal failure more than this.

The greatest travesty is to say he has a legacy.  For our own sanity as a nation we dare not confuse lunacy and legacy.  You cannot find—with an electron microscope—anything Obama improved after 8 years of holding all the cards.

We must have an autopsy on his presidency or we are doomed to repeat this towering mistake again.

His impending— “I don’t care what anybody says, I did a good job”—tirade in Chicago will be a cringe-worthy act of self- delusion. Far from exalting him, it will cement his status as worst President ever.

How badly did he govern?  Consider what he had going for him: He was swaddled in the thickest layers of spin ever accorded an American President.  Look who protected him!  He had the media in his corner—mainstream journalists outdid each other to lie for him.

He had Hollywood in his pocket—movie stars sacrificed at his altar. Social media giants Facebook, Twitter, Google unambiguously propagandized and censored.  Universities taught Obamanetics.

We have had eight years of the most meticulously choreographed suspension of reality that America has ever seen.

Alas, as a testament to his ginormous ineptitude, even this flotilla of revisionism and spin could not keep the bodies from floating to the surface.

At this hour, a pathetic string of panic moves confirms the impending horror.   His remaining toadies work to discredit Donald Trump.  No outgoing president has ever tried to discredit the incoming president even before they took office. Obama blurts out how he would have beaten Trump.  He has become Norma Desmond descending the staircase in the final scene of Sunset Boulevard.

hillary-and-obama-pic-575x380

Let’s take one final look at what he did to us.

  1. He paralyzed the economy: The expansion that began in June 2009 has been the weakest since World War II, with real gross domestic product growth averaging 2.1%. At 7 1/2 years and counting, it is also among the longest on record. 98 million Americans are out of the workforce. Millions more live below the poverty level.

He strangled small business with regulations.  He fought harder to put men in women’s restrooms than he did to put money in your pocket.

The greatest testament to his failure in the economy was the immediate reaction of the Stock Market and business when Donald Trump won.  Economic pundit Caroline Baum said, “New signs of optimism emerged immediately following Trump’s Nov. 8 election. The stock market has been positively buoyant while consumer, business and home-builder confidence have all soared. Surveys suggest businesses are planning to increase capital spending.  That sense of optimism will need to be ratified by results, but the message to Obama is unmistakable: Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”

  1. He nearly destroyed the Democratic Party. “In the eight years since he was first elected, Democrats have lost more than 1,000 seats at the state and national level. Republicans now control 4,170 state legislative seats compared with 3,129 for the Democrats, an all-time low.

Republicans now hold 33 governorships and will have full control — governorship and both houses of the state legislature — in 25 states compared with five for the Democrats.

Democrats lost 12 governorships, 13 Senate seats and 69 seats in the House of Representatives during Obama’s two terms, highlighting “a devastation up and down the party across the nation,” -The Hill.

  1. He looked like a clown to our enemies. Obama claims he told Russian President Vladimir Putin in China in September, to “cut it out” in terms of the hacking. Putin’s reaction embodies the world’s view of Obama.  Putin thought it was a joke.

Mr. President, at first, the world saw you as a promise.  Then they were amused.  Now they are dazed and confused by you.   Your eight years of leading from behind and issuing empty threats stripped America of moral authority and turned our foreign policy into sputtering wreckage.

Again, Caroline Baum said, “The wars Obama inherited are still going on. The Taliban has made a comeback in Afghanistan. Syria is in shambles. And Secretary of State John Kerry has been so ineffective that no one even bothered to invite him to the Syrian cease-fire negotiations among Russia, Turkey and Iran.

2CD6C41400000578-0-image-m-67_1443398624879

  1. He stabbed Israel in the back. Obama overruled 36 years of U.S. policy by abandoning its ally Israel and allowing the passage of U.N. Security Council Resolution 2234, declaring Israeli settlements, including the Western Wall and Temple Mount in East Jerusalem, illegal. He did it out of hatred for Israel.
  2. He made race relations worse. He stood in front of the Greek columns in Denver and promised to make race relations better. 56% say he made them worse.

Before he had the facts, Obama accused Cambridge, Mass., police officers of acting “stupidly” when they arrested Henry Louis Gates Jr. in his own home in 2009. The police were responding to a report of a potential burglary, which turned out to be Gates trying to pry open his front door.

Blacks and Whites took sides and the racial divide began.  On his watch cops were killed out of racial hatred.  Rioting, looting and burning down businesses were justified to protest.  Obama offered only mild rebukes.  He led the Democratic Party down the destructive path of race baiting.

Obama has promoted the idea of a police force biased against blacks. He vehemently denied FBI Director James Comey’s explanation for the surge in violent crime and homicide rates last year as a result of the “Ferguson effect,” with law-enforcement officers pulling back from proactive policing following the 2014 fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.

Obama says police are out to target blacks but totally ignores black on black violence.   Chicago, Obama’s hometown, witnessed 762 homicides last year, the most in two decades, and 1,100 more shootings than in 2015.   Obama refuses to accept the fact that police are three times less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than white ones.

<> on November 24, 2015 in Washington, DC.

  1. Obama will not say Radical Islamic Terrorism no matter what. Once more let me quote Caroline Baum: “Obama has spent eight years deftly avoiding using those three words to call an act what it is. He has intellectualized his position by claiming the phrase “equates Islam with terrorism,” which is counterproductive to U.S. counterterrorism efforts.

Instead, Obama prefers terms such as “workplace violence,” even if the terrorists in question pay homage to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the Islamic State. A terrorist act provides an opportunity for the president to lecture the nation on the need for stricter gun-control laws.

Calling something what it is may not solve the problem, but avoiding it makes Obama look silly.”

Some of you may wonder why I have skipped other scandals like Benghazi, Solyndra, Fast and Furious and illegals who killed American.  Frankly, there is no room here for all his failings.

Legacy? What legacy?  Pilate wondered about Jesus’ mission and legacy.  He asked Jesus about it.  Jesus said, “ask those who saw my works and heard my teaching.”

Hardly anyone is left who can—with a straight face and a strong stomach—say something about Obama’s words, acts and legacy.  Obama is left to do it himself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pastor, Why are you running your church like Hillary’s campaign

Eighty-one percent of evangelicals voted for Trump.  Presumably, the same percentage of evangelical leaders did the same.  This begs a question…why did you vote for Trump but run your church like the Hillary campaign?

 

Pastor, Why are you running your church like Hillary’s  campaign?

By Mario Murillo

Hillary brought in A-list entertainers to buttress her dull message.  Pastor, is your church heavy on perks, smoke and mirrors and jazzy presentations but light on truth, power and the presence of God?  Is it because you believe the message of Jesus is dull without those accouterments?

People came to Trump rallies to see Trump.  It was a wake-up call when Donald Trump’s rally in Pennsylvania was many times bigger than Hillary’s rally even though she advertised JayZ and Beyoncé.  People went to a Trump rally to see Trump!

Jesus should be the main attraction at your church.  Jesus said in Matthew 18:20, “For wherever two or three are gathered in my name, there I am in the midst of them.” We are the only movement in history where the founder attends every meeting.  The miracle-working, devil-defeating, glory-inducing Son of God is in your service.  If you realize this, it will bring a total transformation.

trump-rally

This transformation is not simple.  You must get an inner fire and a revelation.  You must reacquaint yourself with how astoundingly attractive Christ is to the human heart.  The Bible calls Him wonderful and The Desire of Ages.  When Christ taught the people, they not only hung on every word—they refused to take meals for fear of missing something He might say.   

Hillary constantly avoided clear positions on most issues in order not to offend her base.  She hid her true beliefs.  Seeker pastors everywhere have been instructed to do the same thing.  Joel Osteen told Larry King, “I know the Bible says homosexuality is a sin, but I am not going to preach against it.”  While I credit him for his honesty, he is dead wrong.

The whole point of addressing sin is so you can offer the cure.  You may look tolerant, but you are no more than a doctor guilty of malpractice.

People were constantly warning Trump, “You can’t say that!”  People were continually pronouncing him dead.  He declared things that were burning in the hearts of most Americans, but they couldn’t find the words.  He attacked elites and media tyrants and proved they were paper tigers.  And he did not die.

trump-will-lose

Imagine transforming your pulpit into a fire hose of truth.  Imagine preaching the whole counsel of God without regard to men.  Trump proves you can do that.  You must risk being labelled.  So what if you are called racist, homophobic, Islamophobic?  We have proof because of Trump that slander will not stand in the face of truth.

Hillary believed in massive programs.  The continual drumbeat of the media was that Hillary had a better ground game.  She had volunteers going door-to-door.  She had a vast Get Out the Vote campaign.  She would win because of the myriad of things her campaign machine was churning out.

She knew it wasn’t working.  She screamed, “Why am I not 50 points ahead!?”

Similarly, many megachurches overflow with programs.  Members are asked to be busy almost every night.  There is always something to sign up for.  Yes, a church should meet the needs of families, but we have gone too far.

Worshipping programs because we believe it makes attendance grow takes our eyes off the Holy Spirit.  We run the house of God like a corporation, relying solely on our business plan.  Staff gets burned out.  People are run ragged.  Church feels like the express lane at Walmart!  The unspoken message is, “Get in, get out ‘cause the next group is waiting.”

Trump focused on the experience his followers had at his rallies.  Make America Great Again was a unifying cry that released excitement at his events.  People felt like family, not customers. No one was in a hurry.  Trump took the time to help people make an emotional connection with his message. In the last days of the campaign, he focused more and more on this, even though experts screamed that it was a mistake.

She spent $1.2 billion and lost.  He spent one-fifth that amount and won.  Some churches waste a ton of money on things that are substitutes for how God grows a church.  E. M. Bounds said, “What the Church needs today is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use — men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men — men of prayer.”

Hillary did not realize that America had changed.  She felt entitled to win.  She was liberal. She had the money.  She had Obama rallying for her.  She said, “This has always worked in the past.” What she did not know was America had changed.

election-shock

Pastor, you need to know that America has changed.  Fair warning!  It is time to get out of the Christian Witness Protection Program.  America is screaming for a new breed of Christian.  They know—as well as, if not better than, we do—that watering down the Gospel was an epic mistake.  They were not fooled.

It was not just a terrible waste of time and money, it was something worse.  Omitting the “offensive” parts of the Gospel—to attract people—drained its power to set people free. The church became a co-conspirator in America’s decline.

The earthquake that put Trump in office will now rock the church.  Yes, those growth models worked in the past, but not anymore.  Can I put it bluntly?  The American culture will be pierced by vessels who speak words their generation cannot resist—warriors who carry addiction-breaking, disease-killing, miracle power.
