DID THE LEFT SOW THE SEEDS?

Has the angry left inadvertently sown the seeds of revival in California among an unlikely group?  Here’s is what is happening in our tent.

I cannot give you their names or show you a picture. For their safety. Some of them wept their way to Jesus sporting shaved heads and “Hitler” tattooed on the side of their head. But skin heads are not the only ones being saved. They are out of every race and background.

In our tent an average of 100 souls surrender to Jesus per night. But why is this one demographic coming to Christ in unusual numbers? Who are they? Are you ready?

They are young men. The trend began in our first tent crusade and grew more obvious in city after city. The left has targeted them, alienated them and in the process made them susceptible to Christ.

If you want to invoke the rage of the left just say something positive about young men—especially white young men. But their wrath is not just for them. Black young men are vilified.  If they think for themselves and do not mouth the mantra of the grievance movement.

Toxic masculinity is a favored excuse to exile young men. They are deliberately targeted for the sake of “progress” in our culture. Many of them wander aimlessly being shunned and stepped over in the leftist agenda.  Radical feminists ridicule them. Colleges persecute them. Cultural mores are stacked against them. Every mom who is raising a son today knows exactly what I am talking about.

Washington Post writer Christine Emba said it was sad that young men were finding hope in the lectures of Jordan Peterson. She even called the article The profound sadness of the Jordan Peterson phenomenon.

She said, “Peterson himself will tell you that serving as a father figure is his heaviest burden. Much of his work is dedicated to pushing a generation of confused youths to build character, put their lives in order, become adults. “I want to talk to you about how people exist in the world,” he told those in attendance last week. And that’s what this tour is all about. It is also what makes it profoundly depressing.

Peterson’s bestseller is a wordy self-help epistle for young men (it’s mostly men who follow him) in need of direction. Inside a cover invoking an old-school, gold- ­embossed Bible are lessons such as “Stand up straight with your shoulders back,” “Pursue what is meaningful (not what is expedient),” and “Tell the truth — or, at least, don’t lie.”

How can she find it “profoundly depressing” that young men are finding hope and direction?

The left’s message is undeniable: young men are an oppressive force. It doesn’t get any sicker than that.

Look at the pictures. The altars are filled with young men. Night after night it is the same. This attack on young men has inadvertently planted the seeds of revival in California. Will young men charge into the Kingdom and discover what it means to be a son of God and a man of God.  I know so!

At this hour, our tent is headed to Paradise California—a city destroyed by fire.  Some are saying it can’t be rebuilt. But I know better. I just had lunch with 50 Pastors and leaders from that community and they are amazing! Their determination is astounding!

It would be just like Jesus to give them beauty for ashes. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a community restored in heart and spirit before it is physically rebuilt.

They invited me here. I come as a servant not a celebrity. I am honored and humbled to work alongside them.

Please pray for these tent meetings. And please, if you know someone living near Paradise tell them about to come and witness the mighty power of God that will be under the tent every night.

Young men are indeed being systematically discarded in California. But that is a catalyst to revival. I know that as the tent travels south on Highway 99 we will see a snowball effect—an army of young men is being born. Psalm 118: 23 says, “This was the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.”

Is God giving us a second national miracle?

Abolish air travel. Pay the masses not to work. Spend 20 trillion dollars. Ban meat. Shut down the energy producing companies. Get rid of all private insurance companies. Give free health care and college to all illegals.  Kill babies after they are born. We are watching Democrat leaders utter complete madness with a straight face. Why?
A strange shift is occurring. All the loony ideas the Democrat party used to stifle and share only among themselves in smoky back rooms are now front and center. It seems they can’t help themselves. Even when they know it damages them, they keep talking crazy. Even when they are presented with incontrovertible facts, they hold to insane policies.
On January 24th, when the left seemed ready to bring down Trump I wrote this: “God will allow lies to grow to such an extreme that it will soon nauseate Americans. The glorification of perversion, the bullying of children, the parade of insane ideas will fill the vat and sicken America. God will see to this.” Now it is happening.

Trump thundered, “America will never be a socialist nation!” and a stunning 76% approved of his speech according to CBS. This, alongside the left’s plunge into lunacy, started the shift. Rasmussen showed another result: a 52% approval rating for President Trump.
Then Beto O’Rourke’s rally in Texas was an omen. It tested weirdness. Weirdness lost. For a long time, the draft Beto movement said America wanted this stuff.  Beto’s competing rally drew about 900 people compared to Trump’s 35,000+. Beto offered nothing substantive, and had Mexican flags waving. That was the end any hope that he or his ilk could be elected president.
Something else is causing a shift. Today’s headlines read “major cities are turning into uninhabitable hell holes of open drug use and human waste.” These are cities run by Democrats.
Moreover, the radical rules that Democrats created to stop Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the Supreme court are coming back to haunt them. The top 3 Democrats in Virginia are being asked to leave office.

Most experts agree that the Democrat Party has begun to alienate mainstream America. Why don’t they care? I believe it is because of God. I believe we are seeing an answer to prayer. The Bible says, “2 Thessalonians 2:10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie…”
I am not saying that is a direct fulfillment of those verses. I am saying we are seeing a type of that judgement at work right now. Are we watching a good old fashioned, Old Testament event like when God confused the enemies of Israel and divided them among themselves? I say yes.
Here’s the post where I predicted that this would happen   https://mariomurilloministries.wordpress.com/2019/01/24/a-lying-spirit/
You remember the first miracle we saw the night that Trump was elected. Every media outlet except Fox News guaranteed a Clinton victory.  As the evening wore on, a shift began to take place. None of the liberal newscasters could believe it. Soon their dismissive expressions turned to dismay as the seemingly impossible was happening right before their eyes.
Are we watching God give us a second national miracle? As the Mueller investigation stumbles into oblivion with nothing to show for the millions they wasted—as the tide turns in what only a couple of weeks ago seemed a devastating time for Trump and Republicans—are we seeing prayer being answered right before our eyes?
Now is the time for mass soul winning because a threat to our freedom has been set back. This is no time for overconfidence or apathy. New threats are coming. This is a moment to seize through prayer and action.
