WHAT IS GOD TRULY SAYING ABOUT AMERICA’S DESTRUCTION?

AMERICA IS PAST HOPE AND WILL BE DESTROYED?  AMERICA IS FAVORED AND WILL NEVER BE DESTROYED?  Almost all prophetic words today shout one of those two headlines   Facebook oozes with voices claiming to be prophets or mouthpieces for God.   The internet teems with self-appointed prophets who scream to be heard, bombarding us with “prophetic words.”

So, is there a word of the Lord in this hour?  What is God truly saying about America’s destruction?  All I can tell you is I walk in the fear of the Lord and the constant remembrance that one day I will stand before God and give an account for every word I have spoken.  Yet, for all that reverential fear my bones burn with a word for this hour.    

My Spirit can’t hold it back:

That to autonomously pronounce judgement is to play God.  Doomsdayers are calling off the attack against evil when God has not.  They are sounding a false retreat.  They are making evangelism futile.  They are helping put souls in hell by discouraging soul-winners.

Don’t lie to yourself.  Don’t make up prophecies of judgement just because you are mad at the church.  Face it!  Your righteous indignation may be nothing more than a personal grudge that your ministry was rejected by the church.

However, the great danger is not an abundance of prophets of doom.  It is the false prophets of grace and entitlement who are most dangerous.

In a wonderful book entitled The American Miracle written by Michael Medved, we see astounding and undeniable examples of God stepping in when America seemed beyond hope.  However, these examples are not proof that judgement won’t come.  To assume this is sheer madness.

I want to use George Washington as an example of something that desperately needs to be said to the American church.  Washington died because of medical malpractice.  Back then doctors believed in bleeding sick patients.  Washington was already weak from his sickness—by taking blood out, the doctors made him weaker and finally killed him.  It was the worst thing they could have done.

Listen church!  Cheap grace is bleeding an already weakened church.   It helps set us up for national destruction.   For Satan, this the perfect theology.   Instead of a life-giving conviction and a robust will to fight—this perversion induces drowsiness and apathy.

Why do you think so any of our pastors are closet alcoholics and addicted to porn?  And what can you expect a poisoned vessel to preach on Sunday morning?

Past miracles don’t guarantee future mercy.  They should awaken urgency, overpowering gratitude, humility, and profound soul searching.  Throwing ourselves off the cliff of morality to prove the power of Grace tempts God and provokes wrath.

God is trying to show us the times and what to do: 1 Chronicles 12: 32 “of the sons of Issachar who understood the times, to know what Israel ought to do.” The entire chapter lists the military talent of each tribe of Israel.  This gift was Issachar’s weapon

Next, “prophets” who say America will be destroyed or who say America cannot be destroyed are dead wrong.  We are neither pardoned nor condemned.  Our fate has not yet been decided.

We are living in a moment of mercy: HOW SOON WE FORGET!  We were spared the horror of Hillary—the finishing touch of Obama’s death spiral—a permanently enslaving national debt—A Supreme Court chaining us to anti-God laws, freedom-killing environmentalism—open borders bringing perpetual Democratic control, crime and terrorism.

Trump’s election was a miracle meant to ignite the church.  His time is Washington will be short, ineffective and we will end up worse off than ever if the church fails to obey God. 

Trump has had missteps as president.  This does not mean he was the wrong choice.  Would we dare abandon him so soon?   He needs our prayers.  He needs our support.

Here are the precise verses for this hour:  Ezra 9:  8 “And now for a little while grace has been shown from the Lord our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a peg in His holy place, that our God may enlighten our eyes and give us a measure of revival in our bondage. 9 For we were slaves. Yet our God did not forsake us in our bondage; but He extended mercy to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to revive us, to repair the house of our God, to rebuild its ruins, and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem.”

If, after all the mercy God has demonstrated—in a miraculous election—we fail to repent, rise and take our rightful place in America’s future…we can be destroyed. 

Listen again to Ezra:

Ezra 9:13 “And after all that has come upon us for our evil deeds and for our great guilt, since You our God have punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and have given us such deliverance as this, 14 should we again break Your commandments, and join in marriage with the people committing these abominations? Would You not be angry with us until You had consumed us, so that there would be no remnant or survivor?”

Wrath comes when you do not properly respond to mercy:  2 Chronicles 32: 25 “But Hezekiah did not repay according to the favor shown him, for his heart was lifted up; therefore, wrath was looming over him and over Judah and Jerusalem.”

Look again at Ezra’s words: but He extended mercy to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to revive us, to repair the house of our God, to rebuild its ruins, and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem.”

Trump is a temporary reprieve.  Now we must do our part.  We must act on the mercy we have been shown.  He extended mercy so that we would do three things: Revive, Repair and Rebuild. 

Revive: God commands us to seek a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  We dare not have church without it!  We dare not utter another word in the pulpit that denies it!  The word of the Lord for this hour is: cry out to God with heart of gratitude for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

Here is the key promise if we do: 1 Samuel 10: 6 Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. 7 And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.

Repair:  The pulpit and our moral compass is broken.  They must be repaired!  Our wiring, plumbing and foundations are damaged.  Abortion and marriage are issues we lost because our leadership was broken.  We abandoned the Bible and did not arm ourselves or the congregation with convictions.

America needs Lions who roar from a righteous heart.  Away with secret sin and lukewarm grace.  Prayer will repair.  The voice that shakes hell and frees men and women from bondage is forged only in fervent prayer.  Satan does not respect your stage presence, education or tactics.  He knows a prayerless poser.  He only retreats before men and women who have been to Gethsemane.

Rebuild: We must come home to the Glorious Gospel.  We must dismantle all the silly things we have tried to say to this generation.  Forget about rebranding!  We need to rebuild our sermons from the ground up.  Let them be replete with Bible Verses.  Let them talk of the mighty God.  Fill them with content the Holy Spirit can use on lost souls!  The Good News must once again roll off our tongue in the office, on campus and at the mall.

The consequences of cheapening God’s mercy are too terrible to imagine.  The opportunity this miracle has opened is too wonderful to ignore.  That is the word of the Lord for this hour.

 

I NEVER SAID THAT

The therapist walked to the blackboard and drew a horizontal straight line.  He asked the patient “what does that make you think of?”  “Sex,” he replied.  Then the therapist drew a vertical straight line and asked again, “what does this make you think of?” Again, the patient answers, “sex.”  Finally, the therapist draws a circle and asks, “okay what about now?”  Once again, the answer was sex.

“I don’t need to go any further” said the therapist, “you’re obsessed with sex.”  Incensed, the patient replies, “Me?”  “You’re the one drawing all the dirty pictures!”

It was interesting how many thought I was drawing dirty pictures—claiming I said any Christian who disagrees with Trump hates him.  I never said that. 

It was equally remarkable to see how angry they got—how they took it so personally.

Some of the comments were hilarious.  “I am a believer, I don’t hate him. Even though he is a pathological liar, and a wolf.”  Other Christians cited the audio of Trump from 12 years ago as proof that he is evil.  Not even considering he might have changed.  Again, they add the disclaimer, “but I don’t hate him.”

But my favorite criticisms came from those who said:

-This is why young people won’t listen to us.

-The article is divisive to the Body of Christ.

-Stay out of politics.  No politician or party can be used of God.

Thank God they’re wrong about young people.  I hold nothing back and it just makes more of them show up.  I give them direct appeals and they come to Jesus.  It’s a canard to say youth don’t want to hear this.

What is divisive to one looks like God separating the sheep and the goats to another.  A core of believers is rising that is finished with the lukewarm church.  Lukewarm-ness is a good thing to be divided from.

If you think God can’t work through a political leader think again.  If you think politics has no place in spiritual warfare think again.  When the hard left took possession of the Democratic Party, the first thing they did was throw the church out.

Who changed traditional marriage?  Who champions—not only abortion—late-term abortion?  Who puts Christian bakers out of business?  Who is ignores MS-13 because they are immigrants?  Who espouses bans on prayer, conservative speakers on campus, confiscation of guns, makes “F—Trump! a mantra” a statement, one Democratic columnist said, “was worthy of the Pulitzer Prize.”

We have never faced such a hate-filled mob of media elites, Hollywood hypocrites, and God-hating extremists—hell-bent on crushing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in America.

Stop living in the past.  The day of civil discourse from the left is long gone.  Journalism is dead.

I know saying this will make heads explode: but in all this madness of globalism, and George Soros-funded tyranny, Trump is a momentary reprieve from God—an imperfect vessel notwithstanding.  He is a stop-gap buying time for the church to act.  And it’s disastrous for the church to ignore it.  If nothing else, he defeated Hillary Clinton.

Never mind the dinky stuff.  Look at the policies and the laws he is undoing and the ones he prevents—laws and policies that would muzzle the church and will build a godless nation for your children and grandchildren.  Trump is a firewall.

When you say that God can’t use politicians you are saying only the devil can.   

God’s catalysts can come in strange packages…ranging from the bizarre, to the coarse.  Samson, Saul of Tarsus, and even General Patton come to mind.  Often, they offended sensibilities, barged in where others feared to go.

The devil has the American church groggy on the goodness of God without the needed balance of the holiness of God—holiness that leads to authority—authority to rise and tear down cultural strongholds of Satan through moral awakening.

Trumps is buying us time.  Seizing the time?  Well, that’s our job.

What does God do when a nation tries to silence His Church?

If I listed everything the church could say ten years ago that she can’t say today—you would be horrified.  Without a miracle, your children and grandchildren will have to survive in a world that will totally ban their faith—even scarier, they’ll do it without you.

It is hard to convince many Christians that they are losing their freedom of speech and religion.  They either don’t believe it is happening, or they chalk it off to politics.  But the erosion of liberty is not only real…it is the greatest threat American Christians have ever faced.

The doctrines of our faith that offend are the Cross, the Blood of Jesus, hell, sexual purity, and marriage.  They are already being omitted by preachers who feel the heat.  They’ll tell you it’s to reach a bigger audience—trust me, it’s the heat.

What can we do to stop the church from being driven underground?   No vessel of God can seriously entertain the idea that we should stop preaching these truths.  That can’t be the answer.  What then, can we do to reverse this pernicious loss of liberty?

The better question is what does God do when a nation tries to silence His church?  The answer came to me suddenly.   Hear me out, it is not what you think.  It is way beyond petitions, or elections.  The revelation I am about to relate to you, struck me with paralyzing clarity. I am amazed I never saw it before.

However, nothing I am about to say will help you—not one point I make will have its intended impact unless you have a heart for it.  If you are still in denial about what is happening, I can’t help you—this message can’t help you.  If you think I am dispensing alarmist extremism, then you are just another part of the threat.

But, if you want to hear God’s heart on this crisis—if you hunger for more than half-answers, then you have come to the right place.  You can ask the Holy Spirit the most important question you could ever ask: What do You do when a nation tries to silence your church? Here it comes.

When the leaders of Jerusalem arrested Peter, they didn’t know what to charge him with or how to punish him.  They knew they had to silence the church.  There was no doubt about their intention.  They were prepared to do anything to stop the Gospel.  So what was stopping them?  Answer that, and you get the exact marching orders we need today.

What was hindering them was the man who came with Peter and John.  This is the crippled beggar at the gate beautiful.  This was no ordinary miracle.  He occupied the most visible and lucrative begging station in Jerusalem.  Everyone knew him.  Word of his miracle filled the city.  A mad chorus of praise was rising over the eternal city.

Their deep consternation is vividly described in these verses: Acts 4: 14 “And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. 15 But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, 16 saying, “What shall we do to these men? For, indeed, that a notable miracle has been done through them is evident to all who dwell in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it.”

Their profound dilemma is not lost of Peter.  He is seeing the divine solution to government censorship.  He has clearly settled on a course of action—the action we need to take today.  He leaves, armed with critical information.

He gathers the people of God and orders them to pray.  He is about to pray a prayer that is the precise model for our crisis—our threat.  Remember that word threat.

Remember I told you that nothing good can come to you from my message unless you see how urgent the hour has become.  Peter began his prayer by calling the situation a threat.  We must also do this.  He prayed:

Acts 4:29 “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your Holy Servant Jesus.”

Peter is showing us that boldness is essential.  Only boldness will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Not only this, he is forever settling the question of preaching.  Preaching must not leave anything out.  It is by sharing it all, that the church is protected, and able to continue her work.

Next, he is admitting that the vehicle for that boldness is signs and wonders.  God must stretch His hand over an angry culture and perform supernatural healings and overrule the agenda of man.  Such is the case today.  But look at how God answered:

Acts 4: 31 “And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.”  Not only were they filled with the Holy Spirit and boldness, but God answered their prayer for miracles.  In the next chapter, the very shadow of Peter was healing the masses.

Ignore those who aren’t willing.  Set the time and place to go to homes, houses of worship, schools, offices—anywhere where true prayer can be raised to God.  Prove this promise and see…the Spirit will fall; you will gain a tongue of fire…miracles will come.  I am not talking about self-absorbed emotional light touches.  I am talking about undeniable, medically verified, city shaking, divine healings.

And you will see that now, as in that day, no law, no argument, and no politician will be able to silence the church.

THE CALIFORNIA AGENDA: COMING SOON TO YOUR STATE

God is warning us in advance.  He wants us to lose our denial.  Don’t look at your red state, or your on fire church, and laugh off the threat.  It is a real and present.  The Holy Spirit is calling for immediate action.  He has a plan to stop the California agenda.

Don’t forget, there was a day not long ago when believers in California could not imagine the laws that have just passed here—laws that will lead to banning Bibles and shutting down Christian services.

Can this agenda really spread to the other states of America? It’s already there. Here is how it got there and why it will spread even further:

Teachers unions:  The National Education Association is the largest interest group in the United States.  That means the roots of radical indoctrination on gender are already in your child’s classroom.  This union is waiting for the events in California to unfold and gain wider acceptance before they make their move.

The Democratic Party: This November, you will see these elements of California’s agenda slipped into their political platform.

Universities:  The local university your child attends already includes these tenets as a part of education.  Students will earn their grades based on agreeing with these values.

Hollywood celebrities: They are getting bolder and bolder about sexual immorality.  They are pushing the idea that young people who don’t agree are already labeled intolerant and ignorant.

Social media: In a speech at Google headquarters, LGBT activist Samuel Brinton promised to “figure out” how to stop “pastors…” “I may not be able to find every little camp … every pastor, but I can make it something that is culturally unacceptable,” he said.”

The captains of social media—Bay area based, Twitter, Facebook, Youtube—want this agenda to take over of America.  Every American young person has at least one of these accounts.

Lukewarm Churches: They are the biggest reason this radical agenda will spread.  The combination of leftist radicals and lukewarm churches created the perfect storm in California.  That weather pattern is now all over America now.

There is a glaring example in deep red Texas—Houston is a contradiction of mega churches and radical city government.

Beloved, I don’t care if you are in New York State or Alabama…this hideous agenda is at festering and God wants us to take action now.  I believe we can reverse this curse and see nationwide revival.  Do these things:

Pray in a way you have never prayed before:  It is time to call together a unified company of intercessors. It is time to divert them away from separate issues and focus prayer on a specific target.

I said this before: Stand between heaven and earth as a true intercessor.  Invoke the Name above all Names to get to the very Throne of God with your petition.  Do what Moses did who raised the rod of Aaron over the battle. When you pray, pray violently, pray exactingly, detailing the damage you want done and where you want it done. By the Spirit, speak directly to evil powers. Call them out and cast them down.  Cut their power over America.

Get out of the lukewarm churches.  Stop supporting them.  Stop kidding yourself that you are there to minister to people.  We no longer have that luxury.  If you are not hearing the Bible preached, and you are not seeing the Holy Spirit move, get out.

Never mind all of the perks.  Consider the word of God which says, “Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud. –Proverbs 16:19

Even more direct are the words of Paul: “having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” -2 Timothy 3:5

I promise you there is a man or woman of God not far from you who is staying true and fighting the battle of their life.  They are getting it from both sides:  A godless generation and seeker church models that mock their integrity.  Join them!  Watch the Holy Spirit raise up an army.   Follow this link to read about these right churches  https://wp.me/p1vrzp-5rP

Become an informed witness.  I have written to you about stolen thunder How Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson reach millions because the expose lies.   Follow this link to read the article Stolen Thunder  https://wp.me/p1vrzp-5oR

Christians have an even greater capacity to expose lies and oppose bad government.  Proverbs 28: 2 says, “Because of the transgression of a land, many are its princes; But by a man of understanding and knowledge Right will be prolonged.”

Even more powerful is this promise from Jesus: Luke 21:13 “But it will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony. 14 Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will answer; 15 for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.”

Someone reading this is not supposed to be a preacher.  You are supposed to be in government and in journalism…perhaps even television news.  The point is that if Christians would just stop hiding and let the Holy Spirit train them and embolden them we would be able to disrupt Satan’s plans for America.

At the very least, we need to go to our children’s schools armed with an understanding of parental rights and a firm knowledge of our convictions.  We can stop radical teachers and politicians if we obey the Holy Spirit.

It is not too late for any state in America…it is not even too late for California.  We just need to be bold and obedient.  However, we are running out of time.

Finally, I must say what I have said to you before: When God sees someone take up the mighty weapons of God—in the Name of Jesus—and attempt the impossible—God will muster all of the resources of heaven to bring that someone total victory.

Burning down our house

I don’t mention any names in this blog.  I wanted you to see—if you get to see—how extreme things have gotten.  Censorship is no longer just about what you say, it is about what they think you are saying.  Soon they will censor what they think you are thinking.  Consider yourself fortunate if this information is not blocked—or if you got to it before it was. 
I am about to talk to you villains who are burning down our house.  They are using lies and bankrupt ideas to set their fires.  I will use another vehicle that is new to me: I am going to direct this blog directly to the guilty.  I am going to rebuke them.  You may think that is unloving…maybe even unchristian.  That hits on why we have lost so many moral battles. 
To win them—we were told—we must be nice.  We couldn’t have been nicer.  We didn’t win them.  In fact, our niceness made them hate us more.  Love sometimes delivers a “thanks I needed that” message.  Occasionally, the truth should hurt…especially when a nation is at stake.
Wicked people have torched the truth and it’s your children’s future that’s on fire.  It’s time you realized that something truly dark is looming on the horizon. 
Is there hope?  There is great hope.  In fact, it was at a low ebb of faith like this that the Jesus movement exploded.
–Mario Murillo

BURNING DOWN OUR HOUSE

You doused America with flammable lies.  Every room, every stairway, every doorway soaked in combustible falsehoods.  Then you struck the match.  Now the house is burning down.  A five-alarm fire.
Like crazed villagers, you scream “it is for the greater good” as you torch everything in your path.  History chases you pleading: “this has never worked, and it will never work.”  But do you listen?  Reason hunts you down and cries, “you will make the world worse than it was before.” But it doesn’t matter.

You’ll will enforce truth by lying?  You’ll conquer hate with what, new hate?
You’re attacking evil?  Please explain:  After you tell every lie, break every law—and evil not only survives but turns back on you—what truth or law will be left to protect you?  What love, justice, and mercy will be left to build that better world?
I hear some teens declare, “My parents are idiots so ban all the guns.”  Or, “if I can get an AR 15, what’s to stop me from getting a nuclear weapon?”  The entire military maybe?  All this money and attention is being thrown at you because you’re a pawn.  To them you’re no timeless warrior.  To them you’re the flavor of the month.  To them you’re 15 minutes are almost up.
Then there’s the older protesters. The revolution is going to usher in the better world?  Your claim to be “woke” feels more like a joke.  You are flush with hate.  Will you magically be fair—with justice for all—once you have the power?  Face it, you don’t want to end oppression.  You want to be the new oppressor.
You scream “by any means necessary!”  But do you know what is necessary?  Truth, justice, equality, and prosperity come from God—from honoring His Word.  We’ve reaffirmed it for thousands of years.  The only time it has ever gone right for America is when we’ve honored these self-evident truths.  But, does history matter to a mind high on mythical ideology or pot?
You claim science is on your side.  But it is science that refutes you. It is science that knows you falsified your research on gender, weather, and so many things in order to sell your agenda.
Insanity is when you keep doing the same thing over and over again hoping for a new result.  Hate is when you keep the same thing over and over again—even though you know it doesn’t work—because it hurts the right people.
You see nothing wrong with censorship.  You’re fine with rioters shutting down free speech.  You’re okay with sanitizing a religion of hate and twisting the golden words of the Carpenter of Nazareth into hate.
Then there are the sophisticated arsonists.  Governors, special counsels, media CEOs, late night comedians, Senators, all spouting the party line in robotic unison.  You spew the same mantras.  You claim the same sanctimonious ramparts.
“We must make America like California!”  Have you tried to educate a Christian child there?  Have you tried to run a small business there?  Have you tried to eat, sleep, breathe, or find shelter there?  Have you tried to get over the murder of your son, or daughter by someone who wasn’t supposed to be there?  Why would you wish California on the rest of America?

Next is the fire starter who got fired and decided to write a book.  It’s no revelation, it’s a pouty, whiny, rag filled with self-congratulation, half-truths and hate.  A thousand chimps on a thousand typewriters given eons of time could not create such a tower of self-pity and victimhood.
Then there’s you—the sore loser playing with matches.  The crashing bore who stayed at the party too long.  You would rather contaminate the narrative with your delusional entitlement, than let the nation move on.
Finally, there’s the arsonist who couldn’t leave power gracefully.  You were afforded the highest honor and you turned it into a tool to dismantle a nation.  You’re the angry tenant who trashes the apartment.  Only you go one better…you leave toadies in governmental sleeper cells to do your bidding.  You started all the fires you could to keep bringing down the nation.
To all of you comes a solemn warning.  America is not just a country.  There’s something deep in our soil. Something too deep for a Marxist to understand.  And if your hopes and dreams rest in bringing this nation down you just might end up fighting God Himself.  There are millions of people praying at this hour.  They don’t want your brand of country.  They don’t want angry values and hollow promises.  They want freedom.  They fear the Lord…and He watches over them.  You are trying to burn down our house just remember, its not just our house…it’s His.

I believe California Assembly Bill 2943 will silence the church in California 

 

By Mario Murillo.  I realize this is a post from March it is reposted because this bill passed the Assembly but goes before the CA Senate this Thursday.  (Please see important update at this link   https://wp.me/p1vrzp-5za
This is no exaggeration.  It is not the overreaction of an overly emotional preacher.  I challenge you to come up with a different conclusion than I have to this proposed law.  Here is what the law will do:
CA/AB 2943 will prohibit resources concerning treatment or ministry in order to reduce or eliminate same sex attraction or gender dysphoria. Essentially, conferences, counseling, teaching, books, or publications, where money is exchanged for the resource, would be prohibited.
No exchange of money can be allowed for a book that suggests recovery from same sex attraction or gender dysphoria?  No conference can do so either?  Oh wait, the Bible does that.  And oh, yeah a Bible Conference will do that.
This is no slippery slope.  This is the cliff.
This frontal assault on the Christian faith is a giant step toward outlawing Gospel preaching as hate speech.  What will stop them from removing tax exemptions?  What will stop them from removing the right to assemble?  What will stop them from shutting down any group that doesn’t fall in line with their gender values?

Share this with every believer you know who lives in California!

If you live in California act now.  Here’s what to do:

 FOR THE REST OF US:
How did California get to where it could consider such an attack on the bill of rights?  For one thing, deep depravity has settled into the California State Assembly.  But like it or not, the other thing was the apathy and ambivalence of Pastors and believers alike.  That must be a wake up call to us all.
It is hard to believe that we are seeing the attempt to pass a law to persecute Christians.  But it is worse than that: California’s madness could end up punishing Christians across America.  If AB2943 becomes law, it will embolden the forces in other states, who hold to these same radical views where you live, to create similar laws.    IT IS TIME TO PRAY AND OBEY.

IS CALIFORNIA AMERICA’S FUTURE?

Kamala Harris just made the most chilling statement I have even heard a politician make.  She said California is the future of America.  How big a boatload of Kool-Aid would you have to swallow to consider that a positive statement?

The last time I heard a threat like that, I was a boy and Nikita Khrushchev said, “your grandchildren will grow up under communism.”  That didn’t happen.  Neither will Kamala’s threat.

San Francisco was once the crown jewel of California.  Today, my home town is a smoldering mess.  I was there recently.  It shocked me how it had degenerated.  Human waste, dirty needles, and the odor of death hung over the city.

I felt a danger on the streets, I had never felt before.  I wasn’t afraid of crime per se…it was more the disintegration of civilization itself.  Market street was an endless line of dazed people—sitting up against the walls in lawn chairs—in front of even the swankiest stores, smoking marijuana.  One report said San Francisco is now worse than some of the poorest cities in the world.

Fully 25% of America’s entire homeless population lives in Los Angeles.  Cali liberals are so defensive about this, they ban videos on social media that showed the homeless camps.

California ministers can’t say they weren’t warned.  I know I did my share.  The last few years I lived there I made several new enemies because of the message the Holy Spirit burned in my soul.

I preached in many of the larger spirit-filled churches in the state.  I was very clear:  I told them we had 5 years left.  I told them the things we had to do.  If not, God could not use them to stem the disaster that awaited California.

Here’s what I said in a nutshell:

-You must make your church a nuclear reactor of outreach and holiness.  If you do not, your church will degenerate into a hospital for disgruntled and anemic saints.  In such hospitals, the patients rise up and kill the doctors.  That is what is happening now.

-I said you better preach and teach the Cross, the Blood, and core Bible convictions.  Arm your people with values and the reasons behind those values.  Preach truth now, I said, or a day will soon come the truths you are avoiding will be banned.   That happened.  The user friendly message which was a mistake then, is the only one approved by government now. If it gets out that you preach moral values now, you can easlity be protested and prosecuted.

-Finally, I implored them to sharpen their rebuttal to California’s insane values on marriage, drugs, crime, prostitution laws, propaganda in childhood education.  I warned them they were too busy in their isolated kingdoms to come together as one voice that could influence voters.  This one was the most painful thing for me to watch.  When bill after bill came before California voters, the silence of the church was deafening. 

Jerry Brown accused Trump of declaring war on California.  Imagine, our Attorney General Jeff Sessions came to Sacramento to enforce Federal Law and the Governor calls it a declaration of war.

Governor Brown, it is you who declared war—on your own people.  You put a bulls eye on the middle class.  That’s why they are leaving in droves.  You made Christian parents send their kids to classrooms where their faith was bashed as bigoted and false.  On your watch, California went from number one to dead last in many categories, including being named the worst state overall.

Now Kamala Harris wants to spread California to the rest of America.  Wispy liberals across the nation love the idea.  This is a repeat of history.  The Romans worshiped and emulated Greek Culture.  Then Greece rotted from within.  But it was too late for Rome to change course—they rotted too.  At least we have the advantage of seeing what a failure California’s culture is.

I am not giving up on California.  There are millions of Christ followers there.  There are thousands of pastors who putting their lives on the line every Sunday to preach the entire Gospel.  There are ministries there that I will work with till Jesus comes.

Acts 20:31 says, “Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.”   My messages of warning once limited to California are now nationwide.  I get it.  Not everyone is comfortable with my blogs.  I was banned from some churches in California—I expect that ban to spread to other states.

I confess, it is disheartening that churches in other states learned nothing from the folly and cultural impotence of seeker churches in California.  It knocks the wind out of me when believers don’t see—regardless of how brash he seems—Donald Trump was a deliverance from certain catastrophe under Hillary.

No matter what I will carry on.  Not just because growing audience is starting to listen, or because I see the mercy drops of latter rain, but because these warnings are a part of my calling.  And no, California is not in anyway America’s future.
