I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT PRAYING FOR THE ANOINTING TO SHAKE AMERICA.

I’d like to talk about prayer. People make two statements. One is, “I have a prayer life.” And there is what the saints of old said, the world changers: “I have a life of prayer.”

The person who has a prayer life designates a certain part of their busy day to go and pray. A person with a life of prayer, designates a portion of their busy time of prayer to do life…

When Paul said, “Pray without ceasing” I am certain he understood that we had to sleep at night,  that we had to have jobs. What he was talking about is that we must get to the point where life is interrupting our prayer time, and NOT that our prayer time is interrupting our life. Meaning, I am in an attitude and state of prayer, all the time.

No matter how much I can plan, sometimes a jet is late. Sometimes a flight will be cancelled, and I arrive at the church where I am to preach, only moments before I am supposed to preach. I can’t rely on an afternoon where I was alone with God. What I rely on is the fact that I never broke that communion at all. Just as Paul told Timothy, “Be instant in season and out of season.”

That is what needs to happen. We need to rediscover prayer to the point where, I think, “I don’t want to leave this room to go do life, because I’m not ready yet.

That’s what Martin Luther said. He said, “I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.” https://www.goodreads.com/author/quotes/29874.Martin_Luther

As much as I love my brothers and sisters in the Lord, and I certainly don’t want to sound like I am anti-pastor. I’m not. I think there are a handful of men and women that have been real traitors, but by in large, the pulpits in America are God-fearing, sacrificing men and women who love their people and would do anything for them.

Men and women who didn’t buy into the big screens, skinny jeans and fog machine version. And they paid a desperate price for it. Some of them have lost church members. But I have a word of encouragement for them: It is going to turn, because America’s appetite is turning. And the person who is in search of a good cup of coffee and a 12-minute sermon with valet parking, is a dinosaur.

They are going to be replaced by, “I don’t need coffee because I’m wide awake. I don’t care how long you preach, Pastor, because you are turning me from a confused person, into a soldier, fit for war. Pastor you are making me armed and dangerous, to fight for my community, and against the works of the devil.

The appetite is changing. So, I would tell every Pastor, hold on just a little longer. Don’t compromise the blood, the cross, the second coming of Christ. Don’t sacrifice the baptism in the Holy Spirit or signs, wonders and miracles done according to the Spirit of God. And most of all, preach holiness, “without which, no one will see God” (Hebrews 12:14).

God has placed a tremendous burden on me for this hour, to speak what He says, when I hear it.

Scientists discovered, some years ago, that the electricity that runs through your house is far more powerful than we ever imagined. An electric current, at a certain temperature, far below zero, begins to superconduct. This means that at room temperature there is a drag on electric current.

Now, if you use that as an analogy for the anointing: when a vessel of God dies to self, they remove the drag that is on the anointing. When we witness in history a woman like Kathryn Kuhlman, or a man like Oral Roberts, healing evangelists, we wonder why they operated on such a seemingly different plane of power than others. The secret is that they learned to superconduct, and not allow the anointing to be dragged by anything. They had no axe to grind in the pulpit, a personal viewpoint, a hidden agenda to make money, or to be famous. They simply wanted to please the Holy Spirit. And, in that obsession, they superconducted and the anointing flowed freely.

That is also my obsession. When I get in the tent and I begin to preach to lost souls, and I hear that a parent brought a child who is dying of leukemia, or that a man with children has had multiple heart attacks and maybe won’t live through the next few months, and, instead of relying solely on doctors, they come to my tent. That places an awesome responsibility on me. Not to believe that I can heal them, but to believe that I can get out of God’s way.

When I wrote the book, VESSELS OF FIRE AND GLORY, at a certain part of the book I felt a certain grief. I grieved over the Holy Spirit. Because the Bible says, “Do not quench the Spirit. Do not grieve the Spirit. And that word grieve means, don’t hurt Him. We have broken His heart. I began to see how He was insulted, marginalized, misrepresented and reduced to some New Age ‘force.’ This member of the Godhead, the Holy Spirit was wounded and hurt by our behavior. Because Jesus emphatically stated that it is to our advantage that I leave. It is for our sake I must go away, because otherwise the Helper cannot come. And we have rejected that help. We thought we knew how to preach better.

Billy Graham said that it amazed him how the preaching of the simple Gospel, and the truth of it, that the Spirit of God would drive it into the hearts of men everywhere he went. We have got to let the Holy Spirit take over again. He knows how to handle the virus. He knows how to handle the government. He knows what we ought to be saying.

When I began writing my blog, and writing this book, and speaking out, I said, “Lord, You can’t anoint me to do that! You can anoint me to do ministry, and He is, but why?” The answer was found in 1 Samuel 10:6, “Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you mightily, and you will show yourself to be a prophet with them; and you will be turned into another man. And when these signs meet you, do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.”

The kind of things I am saying in this hour would have been inappropriate, even ten years ago. But this is what the occasion demands. And that is why, Pastor! Let the anointing have its way. Begin to speak the message that may not be the line of your denomination. It may not be the tradition that you are used to. It is from the word of God, but it is a focus on exposing the evil of the swamp and the power of God to overcome that evil, and bring America back to God.

I want to pray for every Christian that loves America. Do you love this country – the home of the brave, the land of the free? The land of opportunity created and forged out of a wilderness by a miracle from God. We can’t lose it. We can’t lose this gift. And the stupidest reason ever to cripple our children with socialism, would be because they were too afraid that they couldn’t succeed without the government being their nursemaid.

God, I pray for an awakening. I pray an anointing for common house cats will turn back into lions. I pray that a fire will be ignited in the heart of everyone listening. Those who have been called by You to preach your Gospel in a pulpit, as a Pastor, help them to see their duty. Help them to understand that safety is in obedience and not in escape.

If we’re in rebellion against God, if God has told us to speak out, there will be nowhere to run and nowhere to hide, unless we obey the Lord. Jonah discovered that, when he was told to go to Nineveh, but refused, and went in the opposite direction. God, let us run toward the truth, and not away from it. Give us the courage to speak out in an hour when thieves are robbing us of our rights and our freedoms. Lord, let us be turned into a new vessel of God, and do what the occasion demands. In the Name of Jesus. Amen.

NEAR THEIR DEATHS THEY TRIED TO WARN US

Every Christian in America is at a fork in the road. They will either cave in fear and denial or rise into a reformation of the Holy Spirit. Anxiety and dread are rampant as the chaos of the election deepens. Many believe we are under judgment and yearn for guidance. 5 famous preachers foresaw this moment in vivid detail and God gave them these instructions for us.  “Believe God’s prophets and so shall you proper.” 2 Chronicles 20:20


Oral Roberts heard the voice of God in a vision speaking to the lukewarm American church. God told him, “THERE IS A WASTING OF MY POWER, THERE IS A FAILURE TO GRASP THE END TIME. AND THE CHURCH: THEY ARE COMING TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY MORNING, MOSTLY FOR THEMSELVES. AND THE PREACHERS, FOR THE MOST PART, ARE NOT REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH. “THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE LITTLE GROUP THAT IS THERE. AND THEY SING THEIR SONGS AND THEY GET UP AND PREACH.  WHEN 9-11 STRUCK, THERE WAS A FEAR THAT CAME INTO THE HEARTS OF EVEN MY PEOPLE OF THE CHURCH, AND OF THE PEOPLE OUTSIDE THE CHURCH. AND MILLIONS, THE FOLLOWING SUNDAY OR TWO, RUSHED TO GO TO CHURCH. “WHEN THOSE PLANES OF THE TERRORISTS STRUCK THE TWIN TOWERS IN NEW YORK CITY, AND THEY GRADUALLY CAME TUMBLING DOWN, IT WAS SOMETHING BIGGER THAN PEOPLE HAD EVER SEEN, BUT IT IS NOTHING IN COMPARISON TO WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE SECOND COMING OF MY SON. “MY CHURCH WAS NOT PREPARED TO DEAL WITH THAT, AND PEOPLE CAME TO CHURCH AND THEN NOTHING MUCH HAPPENED, AND THEY DROPPED BACK.  AND MANY OF THEM WENT BACK TO THEIR BARS… “BUT THE PREACHERS WERE NOT PREPARED, AND MOST OF THEM DIDN’T EVEN PREACH ON IT, AND DID NOT EVEN TALK ABOUT IT BEING THE SIGN OF SOMETHING THAT IS COMING−HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TIMES BIGGER.” “NOW, THERE’S GOT TO BE PREACHING WITH FIRE IN THE BELLY!  THERE HAS GOT TO BE AN ANOINTING OF THE HOLY GHOST. MY CHURCH HAS TO WAKE UP−BECAUSE OF WHAT I’M REVEALING IN THIS SIGN, THAT “EVERY” EYE IS GOING TO SEE, “EVERY” EAR IS GOING TO HEAR. THEY’LL SEE THIS THING. THEY WILL NOT NECESSARILY KNOW WHAT IT IS, BUT IT IS A WAKE UP CALL ABOUT THE SECOND COMING OF MY SON!”

David Wilkerson saw a coming storm of persecution and violence.  He saw devastation in New York with fire and massive death and rampant immorality. Few believed him, because at that time unemployment was less than 5%, and because Disney had just taken over the seedy areas of Times Square and had made it family oriented.  All of his words have come to pass. In 1998 David Wilkerson solemnly warned the compromised American church and instructed those with a heart for God to get out of their dead churches. He also instructed them to seek God’s comfort and protection from what was about to come upon America. “The majority of churchgoers today soundly reject all prophetic warnings of a coming storm. Indeed, the American church today is the most blatant “feel good” church in all of history. But, like Israel, we’re only experiencing the calm before the storm! “Likewise today, Christians by the multiple thousands are casting off the yoke of Christ, tossing aside all limits and restrictions. This attitude is prevalent in many of the books and magazines you find in Christian bookstores. It’s almost as if our leaders are saying, “Relax! God isn’t hard. He’s our Daddy, we’re all his kids, and we’re meant to have a good time. Don’t let anyone disturb your fun!””

However, David also said that God gives advance warning and provides protection:  “Moreover, God is faithful to speak in times of prosperity, just before the fury of His judgment strikes. While the storm clouds are still gathering, He raises up prophetic voices all over the land. And, according to Scripture, whenever a sinful nation was prosperous and at peace, God told His prophets to warn that the good times soon would end: “…the Lord hath cried by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity…” (Zechariah 7:7). “Beloved, if we’re going to face the coming storm, then we need to be prepared so that nothing disturbs our spirit. And the only way to do that is to spend time in the Father’s presence, beholding His face. We have to be shut in with Him, on our knees, until we’re thoroughly persuaded He’s at our right hand! “God is clearly telling us, “Don’t be moved or agitated by anything you see. Keep your eyes focused on Me, and you’ll retain your joy!” and  “…Thou shalt make me full of joy with Thy countenance” (Acts 2:28).

“We always have to keep in mind that God’s only purpose in lovingly calling us back to Himself is to protect us in such times of storm. Yet often in Biblical history, when He gave these warnings, the people refused to listen: “He sent prophets to them, to bring them again unto the Lord; and they testified against them, but they would not give ear.” (2 Chronicles 24:19) “Almost always, God’s people grew weary of these warnings. This was especially true if a prophet cried out about a coming storm over a period of years: the society ignored the warning and just continued to be prosperous and at peace. Over time, the people simply switched off the prophet’s voice. They simply didn’t want to hear it anymore.”    Steve Hill saw a vision of a coming storm that had the potential to destroy millions of Christians because of false teachings that are rampant throughout the church. “The Lord began to speak. I trembled. The fresh, new snow represented the false teaching that is steadily falling on the ears of the body of Christ. It has been, and is, a heavy snowfall. The skiers represented believers and non-believers, trusting the resort for a safe and memorable experience. As Christians, we have been warned to be sober and vigilant (1 Peter 5:8).

However, the present ‘awe-inspiring’ teachings have lulled many into a deeper sleep. “The layers upon layers of snow have been steadily covering the solid traditional Truth of Christ. The truth is that foolish teaching in these last days will become so fashionable even the most dedicated believer could become deceived (Matt. 24:24). It’s happening before our eyes. One spiritual leader said the other day: “You guys are old-fashioned ‘holiness,’ we are modern day ‘grace.’ You live in bondage, while we can do anything we want.”

“Pastors and teachers worldwide have succumbed to heretical teachings including universal reconciliation, the deification of man, challenging the validity of the Word of God− including His judgments, and even lifting any boundaries, claiming His amazing grace is actually “amazing freedom.” The message seems to be, “You are free to live according to your own desires.” Sound familiar? “They had no king and did what was right in their own eyes.” (Judges 17:6) These popular self-proclaimed ministers of the gospel are covering the “slopes” and will be held accountable for the spiritual death of millions.”  America’s Last Call   Kenneth Hagin: “I looked at the scroll again, and again I looked to see what I had read about. I saw the skyline of a large city. Looking closer, I saw the skyscrapers were burned-out hulls. Portions of the city lay in ruins. It was not written that just one city would be destroyed, burned, and in ruins, but that there would be many such cities. “The scroll was written in the first person, and seemed as if Jesus Himself were speaking. I read, “America is receiving her last call. Some nations already have received their last call, and never will receive another.” “Then, in larger print it said, “THE TIME OF THE END OF ALL THINGS IS AT HAND.” This statement was repeated four or five times. Jesus also said this was the last great revival. He went on to say, “All the gifts of the Spirit will be in operation in the Church in these last days, and the Church will do greater things than even the Early Church did. It will have greater power, signs, and wonders than were recorded in the Acts of the Apostles.””  Smith Wigglesworth: “We have to see that these days have to come, before the Lord can come. There has to be a falling away.  I want to speak to you very exactly. All the people which are pressing into and getting ready for this glorious attained place, where they shall not be found naked, where they shall be blameless, where they shall be immovable, where they shall be purified by the power of the Word of God, have within them a consciousness of the very presence of God within, changing their very nature, preparing them for a greater thing, and causing them to be ready for translation. “This is the day of purifying. This is the day of holiness. This is the day of separation. This is the day of waking. O God, let us wake today! Let the inner spirit wake into consciousness that God is calling us.

“There are in the world two classes of believers. There are believers that are disobedient, (or I ought to say there are children that are saved by the power of God, but are disobedient children), and there are children that are, just the same, saved by the power of God, who all the time are longing to be more obedient. “Up to this present time the Lord’s word is for us, “Hitherto, ye have asked nothing.” Surely you people, who have been asking great things from God for a long time, would be amazed if you entered into it with clear knowledge that it is the Master, it is Jesus, Who has such knowledge of the mightiness of the power of the Father, of the joint union with Him, that nothing is impossible for you to ask. Surely it is He alone Who could say “Hitherto, you have asked nothing.”

 SUMMARY  Oral Roberts was warning us about people who go to church only for themselves, and of preachers who care nothing about reaching the world for Christ.   How can we deny that this is true?  We have reached the point where so many Christians are unteachable and Pastors are oblivious to the Great Commission.  

David Wilkerson was trying to teach us that as God’s remnant in a storm of deception, violence, and persecution, we can be safe. We can even thrive.  Steve Hill placed a great deal of emphasis on the massive amount of false teaching that would rob the church of her preparation, blind her to the right choices she should make, and leave her vulnerable so that she is destroyed along with the world. But he also provided the hope that repentance and true submission to God would provide a shelter from the storm.  

Kenneth Hagin was warning us that America had a final call.  I believe we are at that call right now.  He saw buildings burning and cities inundated by the judgment of God. However, he also offered great hope that the people of God would do even greater things than the apostles did in the Book of Acts.  

Smith Wigglesworth emphasized the need for purifying, holiness, and separation in the church. He urged us to wake up, ask for the mighty power of God, and then nothing would be impossible to us. Now, listen with all of your heart, with all of your might, and with zero distractions. This storm will damage every compromised carnal Christian.   Jesus told us that the foolish man who built his house on the sand was someone who had heard the words of Christ but would not do them. And the house fell, and great was its fall. That is the key right now. All of these warnings are for Christians.

So what do we do to prepare for this storm?  What steps do we take to obey the words of warning that come to us first from the Bible, and then from God’s prophets?   Distilling the common threads that run through these five men’s prophecies, I found these steps: 1. Stop following preachers that are weakening you, using you, and deny that there is a storm coming. Get out of the churches that look like nightclubs. Get away from the seductive teaching that denies hell, the blood of Christ, the inerrancy of the Bible, and the urgency of the Great Commission.  Don’t follow their teaching.  For heaven’s sake, do not give them any money.   Do not fellowship with believers who condone drunkenness or immorality.   This compromised Christianity is precisely the house built on the sand that the storm will destroy.

2. Press into God. The common thread that runs through the messages of these five prophets is a call to intimacy with God. The result of that intimacy would be a special grace and power to live through anything that is coming in these last days. Each one of them referenced a secret place in God that was available to us, and would create a force field of peace and joy and boldness that would deflect every lie, every threat, and every attack.  All of these men spoke of a level of power that would be revealed to the last generation of Christians on the earth.  They describe a time of great extremes where wickedness and righteousness would ripen together.

Those who choose to press into God will embody a faith that cannot be shaken by any threat or headline.  They will have a presence of God continually upon their life.  Not just some of the time, but all of the time.   Disasters will go on around them, and regardless of how cataclysmic the events in the world become, they will be conveyed safely into the presence of God.

3. Enter the era of ‘extravagant asking.’ Wigglesworth’s reference to ‘extravagant asking’ is a key to the final revival in the history of the world. He quoted Jesus, Who said “Hitherto, you have asked nothing, ask what you will and My Father will give it to you, that your joy may be full.” All five of these prophets hold out a hope for America.   They are trying to sober us up so that we can ask God to spare our nation. We do not have to have fires, riots, and God’s judgment upon America, even though they are well deserved.

We can ask and receive resources beyond anything we’ve ever seen before.  We can preach with devastating conviction that can pierce hearts, and break the chains of the most heinous sins of our time.  We can ask and receive signs and wonders that exceed what the apostles saw.   We can watch God fill the coffers of anointed ministries beyond anything we can imagine or have ever seen before. Finally: Truly God’s word is this, “I set before you life and death.” You can walk away from this message and continue the denial that pervades the church, but I promise you, this storm is coming. You can choose life−not just any life−but the greatest life that God has offered any generation!

YES,IT IS TIME FOR THE EAGLES TO LEAVE THE TURKEY YARD

It is clear that, as the madness spreads and the church just wrings its hands, it is time for the eagles to leave the turkey-yard.  You know who you are, you who are an eagle.  There’s a fire inside you that you can’t put out.  You are ruined for ‘Church-As-Usual-Incorporated.’ For too long you’ve been told to be a good little birdie.  “Don’t ruffle any feathers!” But you just can’t stomach the stale kernels they toss to you.  You must have fresh meat. 

All around you, the turkeys peck at the ground.  But all you can see are the clouds and the sky, where you know you belong. You long to be home, where the glory is.  Your place is alongside the heroes of faith that changed the course of nations.  “Survival-mode” teaching sickens you.  The idea that tepid happiness is the goal enrages you. You made the mistake of looking at old youtube.com videos.  You saw Oral Roberts.  You saw Kathryn Kuhlman.  You saw Smith Wigglesworth.  You jumped up and screamed, “But, where are the miracles today!?” (check out my blog, The Price of God’s Miracle Working Power:  https://wp.me/p1vrzp-53e   ) You made the mistake of listening to old preaching tapes, where you heard men and women preaching holy fire!  They didn’t do monologues. They didn’t do stand-up comedy. They pulled the pin out of Bible verses, and flung them like a grenade to explode into the souls of their audience. 

You heard people sobbing at the altars.  You heard them linger until something real and lasting transformed them. Then something really painful happened to you…you looked at your generation. You saw the national cancer of wickedness.  You saw the insane brainwashing.  You saw the limp-wristed tactics of the church. You became like David as he stared at the paralyzed army of Israel, cowering before a defiant Goliath. You cried, “WHY DOESN’T SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING?”  So, now that you realize that the ‘SOMEBODY’ IS YOU, it is too late for you. The die is cast.  You’ve gone too far to turn back.  You now know too much.  You feel like you should leave before you hurt someone… You remember the verse, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles.” (Isaiah 40:31). Prayer is your escape from the prison yard of compromise and mediocrity. We’re not talking about the ‘gobble-gobble prayers’ you heard in the yard—we’re talking about falling before God and waiting upon Him until you come forth as pure gold.

What are we talking about?  We are talking about prayer that heaven can’t resist, and hell can’t stand. The kind of prayer that breaks the grip of ancient demonic strongholds.  Prayer that causes students begin to weep on campus, even though they do not know why.  Prayer that fills people with the Holy Spirit. Prayer that removes fear, and installs unshakable courage to tell a generation the genuine Good News: the mighty Gospel—which is the unapologetic, undeniable, unstoppable power of God! Eagles dare while turkeys stare! Eagles are born out of prayer. They spring forth from the hand of God, fully convinced of their destiny and their goal.  Let mistaken millennials protest against the AR-15.  You take hold of John 17:15, “My prayer is not that you take them out of the world, but that you protect them from the evil one.”  That is your battle cry!  You don’t want out.  You know the Lord Jesus will keep you from the evil one! You are ready to soar into any nest of evil and destroy the works of the devil. Where eagles gather, power is present. 

Where eagles gather, the deep purposes of Almighty God are revealed.  Where eagles gather, there’s no self-pity, no encounter sessions, and no hiding in your ‘safe-space.’  When turkeys are transformed into eagles, they are equipped, they are ignited, and they are fitted for war. Eagles must have a challenge.  They yearn for a cause that will summon up all of their strength, talent, and time.  They want something they can easily imagine doing for the rest of their lives. It’s time for you to fly out of the turkey yard, and never look back!

Dear reader,

IT IS TIME FOR THE EAGLES TO LEAVE THE TURKEY YARD

It is clear that, as the madness spreads and the church just wrings its hands, it is time for the eagles to leave the turkey-yard.  You know who you are, you who are an eagle.  There’s a fire inside you that you can’t put out.  You are ruined for ‘Church-As-Usual-Incorporated.’

For too long you’ve been told to be a good little birdie.  “Don’t ruffle any feathers!” But you just can’t stomach the stale kernels they toss to you.  You must have fresh meat.  All around you, the turkeys peck at the ground.  But all you can see are the clouds and the sky, where you know you belong.

You long to be home, where the glory is.  Your place is alongside the heroes of faith that changed the course of nations.  “Survival-mode” teaching sickens you.  The idea that tepid happiness is the goal enrages you.

You made the mistake of looking at old youtube.com videos.  You saw Oral Roberts.  You saw Kathryn Kuhlman.  You saw Smith Wigglesworth.  You jumped up and screamed, “But, where are the miracles today!?”

(check out my blog, The Price of God’s Miracle Working Power:  https://wp.me/p1vrzp-53e   )

You made the mistake of listening to old preaching tapes, where you heard men and women preaching holy fire!  They didn’t do monologues. They didn’t do stand-up comedy. They pulled the pin out of Bible verses, and flung them like a grenade to explode into the souls of their audience.  You heard people sobbing at the altars.  You heard them linger until something real and lasting transformed them.

Then something really painful happened to you…you looked at your generation. You saw the national cancer of wickedness.  You saw the insane brainwashing.  You saw the limp-wristed tactics of the church.

You became like David as he stared at the paralyzed army of Israel, cowering before a defiant Goliath.

You cried, “WHY DOESN’T SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING?” 

So, now that you realize that the ‘SOMEBODY’ IS YOU, it is too late for you. The die is cast.  You’ve gone too far to turn back.  You now know too much.  You feel like you should leave before you hurt someone…

You remember the verse, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles.” (Isaiah 40:31).

Prayer is your escape from the prison yard of compromise and mediocrity. We’re not talking about the ‘gobble-gobble prayers’ you heard in the yard—we’re talking about falling before God and waiting upon Him until you come forth as pure gold.

What are we talking about?  We are talking about prayer that heaven can’t resist, and hell can’t stand. The kind of prayer that breaks the grip of ancient demonic strongholds.  Prayer that causes students begin to weep on campus, even though they do not know why.  Prayer that fills people with the Holy Spirit. Prayer that removes fear, and installs unshakable courage to tell a generation the genuine Good News: the mighty Gospel—which is the unapologetic, undeniable, unstoppable power of God!

Eagles dare while turkeys stare!

Eagles are born out of prayer. They spring forth from the hand of God, fully convinced of their destiny and their goal.  Let mistaken millennials protest against the AR-15.  You take hold of John 17:15, “My prayer is not that you take them out of the world, but that you protect them from the evil one.”  That is your battle cry!  You don’t want out.  You know the Lord Jesus will keep you from the evil one! You are ready to soar into any nest of evil and destroy the works of the devil.

Where eagles gather, power is present.  Where eagles gather, the deep purposes of Almighty God are revealed.  Where eagles gather, there’s no self-pity, no encounter sessions, and no hiding in your ‘safe-space.’  When turkeys are transformed into eagles, they are equipped, they are ignited, and they are fitted for war.

Eagles must have a challenge.  They yearn for a cause that will summon up all of their strength, talent, and time.  They want something they can easily imagine doing for the rest of their lives.

 

It’s time for you to fly out of the turkey yard, and never look back!

 

 

 

 

P.S. A Special message to all of our friends from Mario Murillo Ministries

Why do we offer you books? It is certainly not to blunt the impact of the message you just read. In fact, these books reinforce the message we are trying to spread. More on that in a moment.  So, why do we offer them to you?
When the pandemic closed our tent crusades, church meetings and rallies, the Holy Spirit commanded Mario to keep our staff on at full salary, and trust Him. He obeyed and God has provided. But another thing the Holy Spirit grants are wise ideas. And we needed one. That is when the War Chest Collection was born.
If you look at the page you will see no advertising. And there never will be. And if you get our newsletter you will see that we have stopped raising money for projects we can’t do right now. But even that was not good enough for us.
In this pandemic we needed something that was truly a win-win situation. We prayed for something that would help the people, and us, that was not a garish fund raiser.
Then, we remembered how John Wesley taught his young preachers to always bring books with them that would help the people. Why not then, at a time when people have time to read, offer them something that will empower them and at the same time keep us strong and ready to go as soon as the door reopens?  
We are amazed at the impact of Vessels of Fire and Glory. That book is not just blessing people—it has started a movement! Critical Mass remains required reading in many Christian schools and has never stopped influencing people who pray for revival. Edgewise offers wisdom for living in the last days. Together they provide you with solid, hard-hitting and encouraging truth. Not a bad thing just now.
The War Chest Collection has handed the enemy a double defeat by empowering God’s people and keeping us strong and ready.
Thank you for listening and get your War Chest Collection today. Turn your summer read into equipping, encouragement, and fire! We are all going to come out of this mightier than ever!   -Mario Murillo Ministries

THEY TRIED TO WARN US


 

Oral Roberts heard the voice of God in a vision speaking to the lukewarm American church. God told him,

“THERE IS A WASTING OF MY POWER, THERE IS A FAILURE TO GRASP THE END TIME. AND THE CHURCH: THEY ARE COMING TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY MORNING, MOSTLY FOR THEMSELVES. AND THE PREACHERS, FOR THE MOST PART, ARE NOT REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH.

“THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE LITTLE GROUP THAT IS THERE. AND THEY SING THEIR SONGS AND THEY GET UP AND PREACH.  WHEN 9-11 STRUCK, THERE WAS A FEAR THAT CAME INTO THE HEARTS OF EVEN MY PEOPLE OF THE CHURCH, AND OF THE PEOPLE OUTSIDE THE CHURCH. AND MILLIONS, THE FOLLOWING SUNDAY OR TWO, RUSHED TO GO TO CHURCH.

“WHEN THOSE PLANES OF THE TERRORISTS STRUCK THE TWIN TOWERS IN NEW YORK CITY, AND THEY GRADUALLY CAME TUMBLING DOWN, IT WAS SOMETHING BIGGER THAN PEOPLE HAD EVER SEEN, BUT IT IS NOTHING IN COMPARISON TO WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE SECOND COMING OF MY SON.

“MY CHURCH WAS NOT PREPARED TO DEAL WITH THAT, AND PEOPLE CAME TO CHURCH AND THEN NOTHING MUCH HAPPENED, AND THEY DROPPED BACK.  AND MANY OF THEM WENT BACK TO THEIR BARS…

“BUT THE PREACHERS WERE NOT PREPARED, AND MOST OF THEM DIDN’T EVEN PREACH ON IT, AND DID NOT EVEN TALK ABOUT IT BEING THE SIGN OF SOMETHING THAT IS COMING−HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TIMES BIGGER.”

“NOW, THERE’S GOT TO BE PREACHING WITH FIRE IN THE BELLY!  THERE HAS GOT TO BE AN ANOINTING OF THE HOLY GHOST. MY CHURCH HAS TO WAKE UP−BECAUSE OF WHAT I’M REVEALING IN THIS SIGN, THAT “EVERY” EYE IS GOING TO SEE, “EVERY” EAR IS GOING TO HEAR. THEY’LL SEE THIS THING. THEY WILL NOT NECESSARILY KNOW WHAT IT IS, BUT IT IS A WAKE UP CALL ABOUT THE SECOND COMING OF MY SON!”

David Wilkerson saw a coming storm of persecution and violence.  He saw devastation in New York with fire and massive death and rampant immorality. Few believed him, because at that time unemployment was less than 5%, and because Disney had just taken over the seedy areas of Times Square and had made it family oriented.  All of his words have come to pass.

In 1998 David Wilkerson solemnly warned the compromised American church and instructed those with a heart for God to get out of their dead churches. He also instructed them to seek God’s comfort and protection from what was about to come upon America.

“The majority of churchgoers today soundly reject all prophetic warnings of a coming storm. Indeed, the American church today is the most blatant “feel good” church in all of history. But, like Israel, we’re only experiencing the calm before the storm!

“Likewise today, Christians by the multiple thousands are casting off the yoke of Christ, tossing aside all limits and restrictions. This attitude is prevalent in many of the books and magazines you find in Christian bookstores. It’s almost as if our leaders are saying, “Relax! God isn’t hard. He’s our Daddy, we’re all his kids, and we’re meant to have a good time. Don’t let anyone disturb your fun!””

However, David also said that God gives advance warning and provides protection:

 “Moreover, God is faithful to speak in times of prosperity, just before the fury of His judgment strikes. While the storm clouds are still gathering, He raises up prophetic voices all over the land. And, according to Scripture, whenever a sinful nation was prosperous and at peace, God told His prophets to warn that the good times soon would end: “…the Lord hath cried by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity…” (Zechariah 7:7).

“Beloved, if we’re going to face the coming storm, then we need to be prepared so that nothing disturbs our spirit. And the only way to do that is to spend time in the Father’s presence, beholding His face. We have to be shut in with Him, on our knees, until we’re thoroughly persuaded He’s at our right hand!

“God is clearly telling us, “Don’t be moved or agitated by anything you see. Keep your eyes focused on Me, and you’ll retain your joy!” and  “…Thou shalt make me full of joy with Thy countenance” (Acts 2:28).

“We always have to keep in mind that God’s only purpose in lovingly calling us back to Himself is to protect us in such times of storm. Yet often in Biblical history, when He gave these warnings, the people refused to listen: “He sent prophets to them, to bring them again unto the Lord; and they testified against them, but they would not give ear.” (2 Chronicles 24:19)

“Almost always, God’s people grew weary of these warnings. This was especially true if a prophet cried out about a coming storm over a period of years: the society ignored the warning and just continued to be prosperous and at peace. Over time, the people simply switched off the prophet’s voice. They simply didn’t want to hear it anymore.”

 Steve Hill saw a vision of a coming storm that had the potential to destroy millions of Christians because of false teachings that are rampant throughout the church.

“The Lord began to speak. I trembled. The fresh, new snow represented the false teaching that is steadily falling on the ears of the body of Christ. It has been, and is, a heavy snowfall. The skiers represented believers and non-believers, trusting the resort for a safe and memorable experience. As Christians, we have been warned to be sober and vigilant (1 Peter 5:8). However, the present ‘awe-inspiring’ teachings have lulled many into a deeper sleep.

“The layers upon layers of snow have been steadily covering the solid traditional Truth of Christ. The truth is that foolish teaching in these last days will become so fashionable even the most dedicated believer could become deceived (Matt. 24:24). It’s happening before our eyes. One spiritual leader said the other day: “You guys are old-fashioned ‘holiness,’ we are modern day ‘grace.’ You live in bondage, while we can do anything we want.”

“Pastors and teachers worldwide have succumbed to heretical teachings including universal reconciliation, the deification of man, challenging the validity of the Word of God− including His judgments, and even lifting any boundaries, claiming His amazing grace is actually “amazing freedom.” The message seems to be, “You are free to live according to your own desires.” Sound familiar? “They had no king and did what was right in their own eyes.” (Judges 17:6) These popular self-proclaimed ministers of the gospel are covering the “slopes” and will be held accountable for the spiritual death of millions.”

 

 America’s Last Call 

 Kenneth Hagin:

“I looked at the scroll again, and again I looked to see what I had read about. I saw the skyline of a large city. Looking closer, I saw the skyscrapers were burned-out hulls. Portions of the city lay in ruins. It was not written that just one city would be destroyed, burned, and in ruins, but that there would be many such cities.

“The scroll was written in the first person, and seemed as if Jesus Himself were speaking. I read, “America is receiving her last call. Some nations already have received their last call, and never will receive another.”

“Then, in larger print it said, “THE TIME OF THE END OF ALL THINGS IS AT HAND.” This statement was repeated four or five times. Jesus also said this was the last great revival. He went on to say, “All the gifts of the Spirit will be in operation in the Church in these last days, and the Church will do greater things than even the Early Church did. It will have greater power, signs, and wonders than were recorded in the Acts of the Apostles.””

 Smith Wigglesworth:

“We have to see that these days have to come, before the Lord can come. There has to be a falling away.  I want to speak to you very exactly. All the people which are pressing into and getting ready for this glorious attained place, where they shall not be found naked, where they shall be blameless, where they shall be immovable, where they shall be purified by the power of the Word of God, have within them a consciousness of the very presence of God within, changing their very nature, preparing them for a greater thing, and causing them to be ready for translation.

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

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

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

 SUMMARY

 Oral Roberts was warning us about people who go to church only for themselves, and of preachers who care nothing about reaching the world for Christ.   How can we deny that this is true?  We have reached the point where so many Christians are unteachable and Pastors are oblivious to the Great Commission.

 David Wilkerson was trying to teach us that as God’s remnant in a storm of deception, violence, and persecution, we can be safe. We can even thrive.

 Steve Hill placed a great deal of emphasis on the massive amount of false teaching that would rob the church of her preparation, blind her to the right choices she should make, and leave her vulnerable so that she is destroyed along with the world. But he also provided the hope that repentance and true submission to God would provide a shelter from the storm.

 Kenneth Hagin was warning us that America had a final call.  I believe we are at that call right now.  He saw buildings burning and cities inundated by the judgment of God. However, he also offered great hope that the people of God would do even greater things than the apostles did in the Book of Acts.

 Smith Wigglesworth emphasized the need for purifying, holiness, and separation in the church. He urged us to wake up, ask for the mighty power of God, and then nothing would be impossible to us.

Now, listen with all of your heart, with all of your might, and with zero distractions. This storm will damage every compromised carnal Christian.   Jesus told us that the foolish man who built his house on the sand was someone who had heard the words of Christ but would not do them. And the house fell, and great was its fall. That is the key right now. All of these warnings are for Christians.

So what do we do to prepare for this storm?  What steps do we take to obey the words of warning that come to us first from the Bible, and then from God’s prophets?   Distilling the common threads that run through these five men’s prophecies, I found these steps:

1. Stop following preachers that are weakening you, using you, and deny that there is a storm coming. Get out of the churches that look like nightclubs. Get away from the seductive teaching that denies hell, the blood of Christ, the inerrancy of the Bible, and the urgency of the Great Commission.  Don’t follow their teaching.  For heaven’s sake, do not give them any money.   Do not fellowship with believers who condone drunkenness or immorality.   This compromised Christianity is precisely the house built on the sand that the storm will destroy.

2. Press into God. The common thread that runs through the messages of these five prophets is a call to intimacy with God. The result of that intimacy would be a special grace and power to live through anything that is coming in these last days.

Each one of them referenced a secret place in God that was available to us, and would create a force field of peace and joy and boldness that would deflect every lie, every threat, and every attack.  All of these men spoke of a level of power that would be revealed to the last generation of Christians on the earth.  They describe a time of great extremes where wickedness and righteousness would ripen together.

Those who choose to press into God will embody a faith that cannot be shaken by any threat or headline.  They will have a presence of God continually upon their life.  Not just some of the time, but all of the time.   Disasters will go on around them, and regardless of how cataclysmic the events in the world become, they will be conveyed safely into the presence of God.

3. Enter the era of ‘extravagant asking.’ Wigglesworth’s reference to ‘extravagant asking’ is a key to the final revival in the history of the world. He quoted Jesus, Who said “Hitherto, you have asked nothing, ask what you will and My Father will give it to you, that your joy may be full.” All five of these prophets hold out a hope for America.   They are trying to sober us up so that we can ask God to spare our nation. We do not have to have fires, riots, and God’s judgment upon America, even though they are well deserved.

We can ask and receive resources beyond anything we’ve ever seen before.  We can preach with devastating conviction that can pierce hearts, and break the chains of the most heinous sins of our time.  We can ask and receive signs and wonders that exceed what the apostles saw.   We can watch God fill the coffers of anointed ministries beyond anything we can imagine or have ever seen before.

Finally: Truly God’s word is this, “I set before you life and death.” You can walk away from this message and continue the denial that pervades the church, but I promise you, this storm is coming. You can choose life−not just any life−but the greatest life that God has offered any generation!

Vessels of Fire and Glory is Mario’s newest book. It reached number one on Amazon among all Spirit-filled books.

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.”

So what do we do to prepare for this storm?  What steps do we take to obey the words of warning that come to us first from the Bible, and then from God’s prophets?   Distilling the common threads that run through these five men’s prophecies, I found these steps:

1. Stop following preachers that are weakening you, using you, and deny that there is a storm coming. Get out of the churches that look like nightclubs. Get away from the seductive teaching that denies hell, the blood of Christ, the inerrancy of the Bible, and the urgency of the Great Commission.  Don’t follow their teaching.  For heaven’s sake, do not give them any money.   Do not fellowship with believers who condone drunkenness or immorality.   This compromised Christianity is precisely the house built on the sand that the storm will destroy.

2. Press into God. The common thread that runs through the messages of these five prophets is a call to intimacy with God. The result of that intimacy would be a special grace and power to live through anything that is coming in these last days.

Each one of them referenced a secret place in God that was available to us, and would create a force field of peace and joy and boldness that would deflect every lie, every threat, and every attack.  All of these men spoke of a level of power that would be revealed to the last generation of Christians on the earth.  They describe a time of great extremes where wickedness and righteousness would ripen together.

Those who choose to press into God will embody a faith that cannot be shaken by any threat or headline.  They will have a presence of God continually upon their life.  Not just some of the time, but all of the time.   Disasters will go on around them, and regardless of how cataclysmic the events in the world become, they will be conveyed safely into the presence of God.

3. Enter the era of ‘extravagant asking.’ Wigglesworth’s reference to ‘extravagant asking’ is a key to the final revival in the history of the world. He quoted Jesus, Who said “Hitherto, you have asked nothing, ask what you will and My Father will give it to you, that your joy may be full.” All five of these prophets hold out a hope for America.   They are trying to sober us up so that we can ask God to spare our nation. We do not have to have fires, riots, and God’s judgment upon America, even though they are well deserved.

We can ask and receive resources beyond anything we’ve ever seen before.  We can preach with devastating conviction that can pierce hearts, and break the chains of the most heinous sins of our time.  We can ask and receive signs and wonders that exceed what the apostles saw.   We can watch God fill the coffers of anointed ministries beyond anything we can imagine or have ever seen before.

Finally: Truly God’s word is this, “I set before you life and death.” You can walk away from this message and continue the denial that pervades the church, but I promise you, this storm is coming. You can choose life−not just any life−but the greatest life that God has offered any generation!

THEY TRIED TO WARN US


 

Oral Roberts heard the voice of God in a vision speaking to the lukewarm American church. God told him,

“THERE IS A WASTING OF MY POWER, THERE IS A FAILURE TO GRASP THE END TIME. AND THE CHURCH: THEY ARE COMING TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY MORNING, MOSTLY FOR THEMSELVES. AND THE PREACHERS, FOR THE MOST PART, ARE NOT REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH.

“THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE LITTLE GROUP THAT IS THERE. AND THEY SING THEIR SONGS AND THEY GET UP AND PREACH.  WHEN 9-11 STRUCK, THERE WAS A FEAR THAT CAME INTO THE HEARTS OF EVEN MY PEOPLE OF THE CHURCH, AND OF THE PEOPLE OUTSIDE THE CHURCH. AND MILLIONS, THE FOLLOWING SUNDAY OR TWO, RUSHED TO GO TO CHURCH.

“WHEN THOSE PLANES OF THE TERRORISTS STRUCK THE TWIN TOWERS IN NEW YORK CITY, AND THEY GRADUALLY CAME TUMBLING DOWN, IT WAS SOMETHING BIGGER THAN PEOPLE HAD EVER SEEN, BUT IT IS NOTHING IN COMPARISON TO WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE SECOND COMING OF MY SON.

“MY CHURCH WAS NOT PREPARED TO DEAL WITH THAT, AND PEOPLE CAME TO CHURCH AND THEN NOTHING MUCH HAPPENED, AND THEY DROPPED BACK.  AND MANY OF THEM WENT BACK TO THEIR BARS…

“BUT THE PREACHERS WERE NOT PREPARED, AND MOST OF THEM DIDN’T EVEN PREACH ON IT, AND DID NOT EVEN TALK ABOUT IT BEING THE SIGN OF SOMETHING THAT IS COMING−HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TIMES BIGGER.”

“NOW, THERE’S GOT TO BE PREACHING WITH FIRE IN THE BELLY!  THERE HAS GOT TO BE AN ANOINTING OF THE HOLY GHOST. MY CHURCH HAS TO WAKE UP−BECAUSE OF WHAT I’M REVEALING IN THIS SIGN, THAT “EVERY” EYE IS GOING TO SEE, “EVERY” EAR IS GOING TO HEAR. THEY’LL SEE THIS THING. THEY WILL NOT NECESSARILY KNOW WHAT IT IS, BUT IT IS A WAKE UP CALL ABOUT THE SECOND COMING OF MY SON!”

David Wilkerson saw a coming storm of persecution and violence.  He saw devastation in New York with fire and massive death and rampant immorality. Few believed him, because at that time unemployment was less than 5%, and because Disney had just taken over the seedy areas of Times Square and had made it family oriented.  All of his words have come to pass.

In 1998 David Wilkerson solemnly warned the compromised American church and instructed those with a heart for God to get out of their dead churches. He also instructed them to seek God’s comfort and protection from what was about to come upon America.

“The majority of churchgoers today soundly reject all prophetic warnings of a coming storm. Indeed, the American church today is the most blatant “feel good” church in all of history. But, like Israel, we’re only experiencing the calm before the storm!

“Likewise today, Christians by the multiple thousands are casting off the yoke of Christ, tossing aside all limits and restrictions. This attitude is prevalent in many of the books and magazines you find in Christian bookstores. It’s almost as if our leaders are saying, “Relax! God isn’t hard. He’s our Daddy, we’re all his kids, and we’re meant to have a good time. Don’t let anyone disturb your fun!””

However, David also said that God gives advance warning and provides protection:

 “Moreover, God is faithful to speak in times of prosperity, just before the fury of His judgment strikes. While the storm clouds are still gathering, He raises up prophetic voices all over the land. And, according to Scripture, whenever a sinful nation was prosperous and at peace, God told His prophets to warn that the good times soon would end: “…the Lord hath cried by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity…” (Zechariah 7:7).

“Beloved, if we’re going to face the coming storm, then we need to be prepared so that nothing disturbs our spirit. And the only way to do that is to spend time in the Father’s presence, beholding His face. We have to be shut in with Him, on our knees, until we’re thoroughly persuaded He’s at our right hand!

“God is clearly telling us, “Don’t be moved or agitated by anything you see. Keep your eyes focused on Me, and you’ll retain your joy!” and  “…Thou shalt make me full of joy with Thy countenance” (Acts 2:28).

“We always have to keep in mind that God’s only purpose in lovingly calling us back to Himself is to protect us in such times of storm. Yet often in Biblical history, when He gave these warnings, the people refused to listen: “He sent prophets to them, to bring them again unto the Lord; and they testified against them, but they would not give ear.” (2 Chronicles 24:19)

“Almost always, God’s people grew weary of these warnings. This was especially true if a prophet cried out about a coming storm over a period of years: the society ignored the warning and just continued to be prosperous and at peace. Over time, the people simply switched off the prophet’s voice. They simply didn’t want to hear it anymore.”

 Steve Hill saw a vision of a coming storm that had the potential to destroy millions of Christians because of false teachings that are rampant throughout the church.

“The Lord began to speak. I trembled. The fresh, new snow represented the false teaching that is steadily falling on the ears of the body of Christ. It has been, and is, a heavy snowfall. The skiers represented believers and non-believers, trusting the resort for a safe and memorable experience. As Christians, we have been warned to be sober and vigilant (1 Peter 5:8). However, the present ‘awe-inspiring’ teachings have lulled many into a deeper sleep.

“The layers upon layers of snow have been steadily covering the solid traditional Truth of Christ. The truth is that foolish teaching in these last days will become so fashionable even the most dedicated believer could become deceived (Matt. 24:24). It’s happening before our eyes. One spiritual leader said the other day: “You guys are old-fashioned ‘holiness,’ we are modern day ‘grace.’ You live in bondage, while we can do anything we want.”

“Pastors and teachers worldwide have succumbed to heretical teachings including universal reconciliation, the deification of man, challenging the validity of the Word of God− including His judgments, and even lifting any boundaries, claiming His amazing grace is actually “amazing freedom.” The message seems to be, “You are free to live according to your own desires.” Sound familiar? “They had no king and did what was right in their own eyes.” (Judges 17:6) These popular self-proclaimed ministers of the gospel are covering the “slopes” and will be held accountable for the spiritual death of millions.”

 

 America’s Last Call 

 Kenneth Hagin:

“I looked at the scroll again, and again I looked to see what I had read about. I saw the skyline of a large city. Looking closer, I saw the skyscrapers were burned-out hulls. Portions of the city lay in ruins. It was not written that just one city would be destroyed, burned, and in ruins, but that there would be many such cities.

“The scroll was written in the first person, and seemed as if Jesus Himself were speaking. I read, “America is receiving her last call. Some nations already have received their last call, and never will receive another.”

“Then, in larger print it said, “THE TIME OF THE END OF ALL THINGS IS AT HAND.” This statement was repeated four or five times. Jesus also said this was the last great revival. He went on to say, “All the gifts of the Spirit will be in operation in the Church in these last days, and the Church will do greater things than even the Early Church did. It will have greater power, signs, and wonders than were recorded in the Acts of the Apostles.””

 Smith Wigglesworth:

“We have to see that these days have to come, before the Lord can come. There has to be a falling away.  I want to speak to you very exactly. All the people which are pressing into and getting ready for this glorious attained place, where they shall not be found naked, where they shall be blameless, where they shall be immovable, where they shall be purified by the power of the Word of God, have within them a consciousness of the very presence of God within, changing their very nature, preparing them for a greater thing, and causing them to be ready for translation.

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

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

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

 SUMMARY

 Oral Roberts was warning us about people who go to church only for themselves, and of preachers who care nothing about reaching the world for Christ.   How can we deny that this is true?  We have reached the point where so many Christians are unteachable and Pastors are oblivious to the Great Commission.

 David Wilkerson was trying to teach us that as God’s remnant in a storm of deception, violence, and persecution, we can be safe. We can even thrive.

 Steve Hill placed a great deal of emphasis on the massive amount of false teaching that would rob the church of her preparation, blind her to the right choices she should make, and leave her vulnerable so that she is destroyed along with the world. But he also provided the hope that repentance and true submission to God would provide a shelter from the storm.

 Kenneth Hagin was warning us that America had a final call.  I believe we are at that call right now.  He saw buildings burning and cities inundated by the judgment of God. However, he also offered great hope that the people of God would do even greater things than the apostles did in the Book of Acts.

 Smith Wigglesworth emphasized the need for purifying, holiness, and separation in the church. He urged us to wake up, ask for the mighty power of God, and then nothing would be impossible to us.

Now, listen with all of your heart, with all of your might, and with zero distractions. This storm will damage every compromised carnal Christian.   Jesus told us that the foolish man who built his house on the sand was someone who had heard the words of Christ but would not do them. And the house fell, and great was its fall. That is the key right now. All of these warnings are for Christians.

So what do we do to prepare for this storm?  What steps do we take to obey the words of warning that come to us first from the Bible, and then from God’s prophets?   Distilling the common threads that run through these five men’s prophecies, I found these steps:

1. Stop following preachers that are weakening you, using you, and deny that there is a storm coming. Get out of the churches that look like nightclubs. Get away from the seductive teaching that denies hell, the blood of Christ, the inerrancy of the Bible, and the urgency of the Great Commission.  Don’t follow their teaching.  For heaven’s sake, do not give them any money.   Do not fellowship with believers who condone drunkenness or immorality.   This compromised Christianity is precisely the house built on the sand that the storm will destroy.

2. Press into God. The common thread that runs through the messages of these five prophets is a call to intimacy with God. The result of that intimacy would be a special grace and power to live through anything that is coming in these last days.

Each one of them referenced a secret place in God that was available to us, and would create a force field of peace and joy and boldness that would deflect every lie, every threat, and every attack.  All of these men spoke of a level of power that would be revealed to the last generation of Christians on the earth.  They describe a time of great extremes where wickedness and righteousness would ripen together.

Those who choose to press into God will embody a faith that cannot be shaken by any threat or headline.  They will have a presence of God continually upon their life.  Not just some of the time, but all of the time.   Disasters will go on around them, and regardless of how cataclysmic the events in the world become, they will be conveyed safely into the presence of God.

3. Enter the era of ‘extravagant asking.’ Wigglesworth’s reference to ‘extravagant asking’ is a key to the final revival in the history of the world. He quoted Jesus, Who said “Hitherto, you have asked nothing, ask what you will and My Father will give it to you, that your joy may be full.” All five of these prophets hold out a hope for America.   They are trying to sober us up so that we can ask God to spare our nation. We do not have to have fires, riots, and God’s judgment upon America, even though they are well deserved.

We can ask and receive resources beyond anything we’ve ever seen before.  We can preach with devastating conviction that can pierce hearts, and break the chains of the most heinous sins of our time.  We can ask and receive signs and wonders that exceed what the apostles saw.   We can watch God fill the coffers of anointed ministries beyond anything we can imagine or have ever seen before.

Finally: Truly God’s word is this, “I set before you life and death.” You can walk away from this message and continue the denial that pervades the church, but I promise you, this storm is coming. You can choose life−not just any life−but the greatest life that God has offered any generation!

World Changing Faith

TO BEGIN WITH, I BELIEVE SOMEONE WILL READ THIS AND CHANGE THE WORLD-Mario Murillo

How did we lose world changing faith? We lost it because our culture disparages greatness, audacity, courage, originality, and heroism.  Our children are barraged with messages of defeat and limitations.  Worse yet, they are told that wanting to excel might hurt someone else’s feelings.

The curse of so many of today’s educators is that they have trained this generation to believe that they are to do just enough to get by.  Instead of going for brilliance and creativity, many are conditioned to harp, whine, and have a temper tantrum against the unfairness of the world.

“Besides,” their teachers say, “you can’t change the world.”  Teachers themselves believe this ideology makes the world safer.  Seneca had it right when he said, “It is not because the times are dangerous that men do not dare, it is because men do not dare that the times are dangerous.”

Small people with small minds mold the future.  You can be sure that if small men cast large shadows, it means the sun is about to set.  Is there anything we can do to push back the approaching darkness?  Where are the world-changers?

Tragically, the lie that you can’t change the world also permeates Christian Colleges.  Christian leaders are being trained not to offend. They are studying what to leave out of their preaching.  Their professors serve a smaller God than the One we used to hear about in church—the God of the Bible. They graduate with self doubt instead of world changing faith.

Billy Graham and Oral Roberts.  Astonishingly, some will not know the two men in the picture.  They changed the world.  Billy Graham preached to more people, face to face and on television, than any other man in history.  Oral Roberts brought divine healing to his generation.

How bad is our defeatism?  When Billy Graham died, some notable leaders called it “the end of God’s protection.”  Others said, “We will never see another one like him.”

I rebuke both of those statements.  And it is not just me. All of human history rebukes such pallid words—and nothing in the Bible supports them, either. Frankly, the doubting church doesn’t need another soothing sermon. It needs a swift kick!

The promises of God and the power of God to change the world are still in force. Billy Graham and Oral Roberts would be horrified to hear us either make monuments of them or call them relics of a past era.  Their testimony should be a catalyst for God to do it again!

This promise is not just for men either!  Joel: 2:28 says, “I will pour out of my Spirit on your sons and daughters and they will prophesy…”  And no one is too old…”your old men shall dream dreams.”

Are these times so evil that we can’t break the gravitational force of wickedness?  No one has the right to tell God what He can or cannot do.  There is no devil, demagogue, or disaster too big for God.   

You could listen to doomsayers—those who morbidly hope for all hell to break loose—or you can seize the Word of God the way that Billy and Oral did.

Here are three timeless truths about world-changers:

1. World-changers appear when things look impossible. The same voices of doubt and despair were present at the dawn of Billy and Oral’s ministries.  There was no money available to them to do what they wanted to do.  There was no supporting faith surrounding their visions.  They were constantly being second guessed by those who were full of unbelief.

It was not until they cast themselves utterly on God that their breakthroughs came.

When Esther appeared, the Jews seemed hopelessly doomed.  Mordecai spoke these immortal words to her: “Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14)

2. World-changers know when to go it alone. God kept telling Gideon to shrink his army—not enlarge it.   It was only after he won an astonishing victory that the other tribes found out and got offended. “Now the men of Ephraim said to him, ‘Why have you done this to us by not calling us when you went to fight with the Midianites?’ And they reprimanded him sharply.” (Judges 8:1)

The vision of the Lord is always too big for the church. True visions from God will always be too big for any one church or denomination.  Both Billy Graham and Oral Roberts had to follow God, and let the church come along later.  If you wait for approval, you will never begin to fulfill your vision.

Also, world-changers don’t mope when people won’t support them.  They know that if God is with them, who can be against them?

3. World-changers believe God can do it again.  While nostalgia makes some yearn for the good old days, and despair makes others invent impossibilities—world-changers say, “Why not now, why not here, and why not me?”

1 Samuel 14:6: “Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, ‘Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few.’”

These two were in the grip of two explosive thoughts:  The testimony of what God has done in the past, and an inconsolable grief over the present evil condition of the world.  This dilemma placed a motivating burden on them, and caused them to cry out for a new move of God in history.

This was the incurable obsession that made Habakkuk cry out “O Lord, I have heard Your speech and I was afraid; O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years!  In the midst of the years make Yourself known; In wrath remember mercy. (Habakkuk 3:2)

Someone will read this and change the world.  Was I being arrogant by giving my blog that title?  No. I believe the Holy Spirit told me to write this and I believe He will get it into the hands of a world-changer.  Why not you? Why not let God inflame you with world changing faith!
