THEY ARE THE NEXT BACKLASH

Today, June 12, 2021 is a big day for Mario Murillo Ministries. Today, I can see what a lot of people cannot see. Not because I am a seer. Not because I am a prophet—which I have consistently denied.

I don’t even need any superpowers to see that a huge backlash is coming. What is happening right now in California is the reason for my conviction that it is coming. It is not simply that hundreds of people have signed up to come to Sacramento from all parts of the nation—to serve. And that they have come with no expectation of being blessed, entertained, or recognized. They have come to win souls and heal the sick. That is a sign.

 Today June 12, 2021, we are going door to door in hurting neighborhoods in Sacramento giving away 20,000 pounds of food. But that is only the beginning. We will give a dynamic witness to the surpassing power of Jesus over every ill and evil. This is not a photo op or a guilt trip. Mario Murillo Ministries and Inner City Action are on a mission to share the love of God. That too is a sign.

But the biggest sign is on the other side of the street. The people of California, unchurched, forgotten and seething with anger, are a massive funnel of lava racing to the surface from deep underground.

The regular people are the unseen force. They have had their fill of Gavin Newsom and wokeness. Most are loyal Democrats—some are union workers—black, brown, and Asian. You know, the trusty voter- base of the Democrat Party. THEY ARE RAGING AGAINST THE MACHINE.

They are the ones who have had their paychecks amputated by communistic taxes. They are the ones who endure the gender-bending, atheistic overtones in their local schools. They see the brainwashing garbage their children bring home every day.

These are the people we approach. They take our cards, and look at them with a knowing stare. Their eyes tell us, “I have been forced to try everything…why not Jesus?” Yes! It is happening in California. The pleasure domes are imploding. The spell is being broken.

It is stunning, maybe because we got too used to our message being rejected on the streets. But that rejection came in the early days of the backlash, back when they were hot with hatred for Trump.

That was before a maskless Nancy Pelosi got her hair done, and then drove that very beauty shop out of business.

That was before the restaurant owner went on YouTube and sobbed as she pointed to the elegant outdoor tables and food of a movie company right next to her bankrupt establishment—bankrupt and banned from doing outdoor seating.

That was before Gavin threatened families and ordered them not to have meals together and then sauntered into the French Laundry restaurant for a big dinner with, yes, his family and friends.

Then there is the crime, the homelessness, and the brutality of godless government. A backlash is coming. Yes. A backlash, sir and madam! It is as inevitable as death and taxes.

Satan put Biden in office. Sorry if that offends you, or worse, it pains you that you voted for him and brought on this devastation.

Satan always goes too far, and that is why the Democrats do, also.

The frenzy you see them engaged in, frantically passing bills to make fraudulent elections permanent—executive orders to seize your guns—laws to put a man in your little girl’s bathroom—tyrannical regulations to force you to obtain a vaccine passport.

Why are they ramming all of this down our throat? Because these socialistic villains know the backlash is coming. They know Biden is a stop gap—a mere band-aid. He was not meant to last. They are betting they can do their dirty work before America wakes up. But they are wrong.

Yes, from the ramparts of righteousness you can see the rising tide. Not since the villagers carrying pitchforks and torches stormed the Frankenstein castle, has there been such a growing rage to get rid of an evil experiment. The backlash is starting in California, but only God knows where it will go from here.

The demonic fuel of this flash-in-the-pan socialist revolution knows it is now or never.  And if the openness to God in California is any indication, their dream of totalitarian control will result in the resounding cry of, “Never!” from God the Father, in heaven, and echoed by the Body of Christ, on earth!

NEVER SLOW THE TRAIN TO THROW ROCKS AT THE BARKING DOGS

The greatest meetings in our history are happening right now in Rocklin California. 4,000 people a night are coming! Over one thousand souls have come forward. I will not be able to tell you more until tomorrow.

The locomotive is barreling down the tracks. Momentum at Mario Murillo Ministries is both stunning and humbling. The combination of starving souls on the streets, and an on-fire core of pastors and soldiers, portends a gigantic harvest of souls in California.

I began wondering what Satan was going to do. Sure enough, right on schedule, it came from a “news” agency—I won’t say their name, but it is an agency that makes news weak.

They did the classic hit piece, lies and all.

My flesh yearned to retaliate, because I had them dead to rights. Then something absolutely amazing happened. I remembered the Modesto Manifesto. I couldn’t believe how perfect this was, and I began to roar with laughter.

Billy Graham came to Modesto, California, early in his ministry. While there, the national press launched a blistering attack on Graham and his entourage. He gathered his team together and created a policy which they called the Modesto Manifesto. Among other things, they agreed that they would never respond in anger to the press.

How hilarious that this attack also came right before we went to Modesto! I thought, “Devil, you are stuck in such a rut!”

But in this current environment, I find I must take it a step further than the Graham organization did. I will not just refuse to respond in anger to the press―I will not even talk to any Left-leaning news outlet or publication.

The world of 2021 is light-years from the world of 1948, when the Modesto Manifesto came into being. Back then, there were real journalists, but now, there are only paid defenders of the Democrat Party. Among those of the leftist media, there are no journalists, only mouthpieces, all following the same pre-written scripts.

Decades ago, in a normal interview for either a newspaper or a magazine, the questioner would ask to hear your side of the argument and then interview someone else who takes the other side of that argument, to be fair and balanced.

But now, when they interview you for television, it is very different. They are not there as an impartial host; they are there to call you a liar and to impose their truth.  They themselves embody the opposing argument, because their minds are already made up.

Look closely at this utterly dishonest question that George Stephanopoulos asked Rand Paul: “This election was not stolen—do you accept that fact?”

Rand Paul’s retort was correct, “George, you’re not so much a “journalist” as “a fool.” Adding, “Well, what I would say is that the debate over whether or not there was fraud should occur. We never had any presentation in court. Most of the cases were thrown out for lack of standing, a procedural way of not hearing it,” Breitbart noted.

He went on to say, “George, where you make a mistake is people coming from the liberal side like you — you immediately say everything’s a lie instead of saying there’s two sides to everything. Historically, what would happen is, I said I thought there was fraud, you would interview someone who said there wasn’t. Now you insert yourself in the middle and say the absolute fact is that everything I’m saying is a lie.”

The publication that did the hatchet job on MMM did exactly the same thing. They said I staunchly opposed the LGBTQ community having any rights. They had no quote where I ever said that. They relied solely on the fact that I take a Biblical stand on morality. To them it is settled science—a fact—that if you believe the Bible, you believe the LGBTQ community should have zero rights. See how it works?

There is simply no way to talk to the leftist media. They are not after the truth. They are only concerned with advancing their lies and crushing anyone who gets in their way.

My energy must be spent winning souls and seeing God heal the sick. Our momentum is too important to slow it down and become entangled in their nonsense.

The same applies to liberal churches who think we are being too direct with our message of salvation and healing, and believe that we are premature in having the tent wide open to the public. Again, I cannot slow down to answer their objections.

Nehemiah also refused to slow down and talk to the opposition: “So I sent messengers to them, saying, “I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down. Why should the work cease while I leave it and go down to you?” (Nehemiah 6:3)

Not only will the train not slow down―it is gaining speed. Thousands are praying for this miraculous open door. Hundreds are working hard to get lost souls and the sick to the tent. Every Saturday morning a rapidly growing Zoom Call bombards heaven with prayer.

California is on the verge of a statewide visitation. That is why I will never slow the train to throw rocks at the barking dogs.






 

P.S. A message to those who support Mario Murillo’s mission to America.

John Wesley started 700 churches on three continents. One of his edicts to his young preachers was this: Always bring books for the people that will help them to grow.

We found a way to both do that and win souls. As you can imagine, a blog with this much traffic can sell advertising—something we refuse to do. What we do, is offer you materials that are chosen because they can make you armed and dangerous for Christ. The proceeds from the book and flash drive go to soul winning.

Some are offended that we offer books at all. We hope they will try to understand the two-fold blessing of offering this material. Thank you.

Our current special offer features our two most popular items: Treasury flash drive and Vessels of Fire and Glory together plus a free surprise gift from Mario Murillo Ministries.

Free shipping! And again, the proceeds go to soul winning. Order now

EXPLAINING THE SHOCKING RESULTS IN MODESTO

The unfolding events in Modesto read like something from a bygone era. A full 2 hours before the start, the tent was half full and we moved up the worship start to 5:45 P.M.

This is California. California, where supposedly, people do not want God. And even hate God. California where they are overscheduled and underwhelmed with the idea of having to show up early for anything. Right?

We rented 500 extra chairs, but almost immediately, they were filled. We used a tent much larger than our old tent, and still the overflow was larger than any previous tent crusade. Thousands came.

The only draw is singing, preaching, and Jesus. That is all. No bells, no whistles, no extravaganza. This in itself is a sermon. How far have we strayed from realizing the power of the presence of God to draw people? The presence that touches the human heart as nothing else can. The presence of God that Moses said would distinguish us from all the peoples of the earth (Exodus 33:16).

Why are they here? It is not just the presence of God, but they have been driven here because Satan and the Left have gone too far. The vision of the Left for California is an unmitigated disaster. It is misery for everyone, from the cradle to the grave.

Going ‘woke’, drains the color and enjoyment out of everything. It means living in a perpetual state of offense and paranoia. It turns otherwise rational people into people obsessed with racism.

They did not sit through just one sermon, but I preached two sermons. The first for lost souls, and the second, for revival.

It has been assumed by most, that Californians cannot sit through a full sermon, let alone two. That is just one of the sacred cows and false assumptions this blog has been targeting―but there is a simple reason: we are losing the war for America―and for all the wrong reasons.

Not only that, but my first sermon left in all of the items you are supposed to leave out. I preached against sin. I mentioned hell, often. I centered on the Cross and the Blood. I told them to repent.

When will we learn to preach what the Holy Spirit wants?

Then the Holy Spirit removed the protection and the resistance of sinners. They instantly left all, to follow Jesus. They tell me that 500 people came to Christ last night. But as always, only God knows the actual number.

The next sermon I preached centered on revival. I told the audience that we did not just want a great meeting. We do not want great pictures and memories of an event that came and went. “I want Satan to pack up and get out of town!”

To that end I made the following points:

1. Who knows when it will ever be like this again? What if this is the last time the door to revival will be open to California?

Esther 4:13-14, “And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

2. Understand what is at stake: We are fighting for our families! Nehemiah 4:14, “And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses.””

3. Make room for revival.  Jesus said to let down the nets, but they only let down one net.

Luke 5:4-7, “When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless, at Your word I will let down the net.” And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. So, they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. 

4. We need the outpouring of Fresh Fire in order that we may be turned into the people of this hour.

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

Acts 4:29-31, “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” 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.”

After the Word of the Lord was delivered last night, the fire fell, and thousands of people vowed to be lions of righteousness. They were sent out into the night to bring the sick to the great miracle service that will take place in the tent tonight. Join with us in prayer, and if you are coming―get there early!

Not only will the train not slow down―it is gaining speed. Thousands are praying for this miraculous open door. Hundreds are working hard to get lost souls and the sick to the tent. Every Saturday morning a rapidly growing Zoom Call bombards heaven with prayer.

The locomotive is charging toward John Thurman Field, in Modesto. We are 13 days away from opening the Living Proof Modesto crusade! I am announcing what I know to be true: this tent will be the site of great miracles. Do not miss a single night, if at all possible. I look forward to seeing you there!

California is on the verge of a statewide visitation. That is why I will never slow the train to throw rocks at the barking dogs.

THEY ARE THE NEXT BACKLASH

I can see what a lot of people cannot see. Not because I am a seer. Not because I am a prophet—which I have consistently denied.

I don’t even need any superpowers to see that a huge backlash is coming. What is happening right now in California is the reason for my conviction that it is coming. It is not simply that 500 people have already come to Modesto from all parts of the nation—to serve. And that they have come with no expectation of being blessed, entertained, or recognized. They have come to win souls and heal the sick. That is a sign.

That tons of food and clothing are going out to the forgotten and destitute is not enough for them. They must give a dynamic witness to the surpassing power of Jesus over every ill and evil. This is not a photo op or a guilt trip. They are on a mission to share the love of God. That too is a sign.

But the biggest sign is on the other side of the street. The people of California, unchurched, forgotten and seething with anger, are a massive funnel of lava racing to the surface from deep underground.

The regular people are the unseen force. They have had their fill of Gavin Newsom and wokeness. Most are loyal Democrats—some are union workers—black, brown, and Asian. You know, the trusty voter- base of the Democrat Party. THEY ARE RAGING AGAINST THE MACHINE.

They are the ones who have had their paychecks amputated by communistic taxes. They are the ones who endure the gender-bending, atheistic overtones in their local schools. They see the brainwashing garbage their children bring home every day.

Satan put Biden in office. Sorry if that offends you, or worse, it pains you that you voted for him and brought on this devastation.

Satan always goes too far, and that is why the Democrats do, also.

The frenzy you see them engaged in, frantically passing bills to make fraudulent elections permanent—executive orders to seize your guns—laws to put a man in your little girl’s bathroom—tyrannical regulations to force you to obtain a vaccine passport.

Why are they ramming all of this down our throat? Because these socialistic villains know the backlash is coming. They know Biden is a stop gap—a mere band-aid. He was not meant to last. They are betting they can do their dirty work before America wakes up. But they are wrong.

Yes, from the ramparts of righteousness you can see the rising tide. Not since the villagers carrying pitchforks and torches stormed the Frankenstein castle, has there been such a growing rage to get rid of an evil experiment. The backlash is starting in California, but only God knows where it will go from here.

PRAY FOR LIVING PROOF MODESTO

FRESNO CONTINUES TO AMAZE

We have done tent crusades where many have been saved. We have done tent crusades where glorious healings have taken place. We have done tent meetings that have had great impact on the community. But what is amazing about this one, is that it is all of those things combined, and more.

The message tonight focused on these verses: 2 Timothy 3:1-5, “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!”

My sermon exposes how demonic power is perverting people and creating all the pain and misery of these last days. I drive home the point that so much of the torment that people are facing is caused by satanic power. This simple and raw sermon has a deep impact on the audience. All of us are stunned by how deeply sinners are convicted by the Holy Spirit.

The message is not a soothing sales-job that tickles ears. But that does not matter to these precious souls. They do not hesitate to repent.
I opened the altar for lost souls to come to Jesus. They start coming from everywhere to give themselves to the King of Kings. Those who look on rejoice with extraordinary joy. They know this is a sign that God is visiting their city.
The newly saved are led outside the tent. A special grace comes on our 200 volunteers who are out there praying and counseling each life that is being transformed. Then, to my great delight, they are coming back in the tent to experience their first miracle service.
Now our cameras catch the moment a man on the front row hears a word of knowledge about the three life-threatening sicknesses in his body. He is feeling cancer, lung, and heart disease leave his body. The power of God is so great he collapses to his knees. He is sobbing out of sheer gratitude.

Another man in the back receives the word of the Spirit regarding the diabetes, heart disease, and spine disorder he has suffered from. He too falls to his knees beneath the weight of glory.

These two healings are all it takes to touch off a storm of miracles across the tent. Only God knows how many were healed.

Why are all these things amazing? Because: It is an overflow crowd on a Tuesday night. It is old-time preaching on sin and hell in a time when we always hear that this kind of preaching will not work.  It is amazing because these confirmed signs and wonders are happening in a time of quarantines.

By the end of the evening I am looking out at an army—a great army, with a zeal to obey God that I have not seen. I feel caution about what I am about to ask them to do, for I know they will do it. “Get your friends and loved ones and bring them tomorrow night. We will have time to rest after this week. For now, we must pull out all the stops and run with this revival.” 

I know they will do it. I know this is a true move of God. I know that Fresno will continue to amaze.

All glory to God!

FRESNO EXPLODES!

Almighty God made an emphatic statement in Fresno tonight. This was not a good meeting. I have been to good meetings. This was an explosion. This was the vengeance of God crashing into Satan’s agenda.

The church in California has been told a mountain of lies. So many of those lies were shattered tonight that I lost count. Here are just a few:

The lie that believers are afraid to turn out to a crusade was obliterated. Every seat in the tent vanished almost as soon as we opened the gates. The tent flaps went down and then 500 more people sat or stood outside the tent.

God obliterated the lie that people will only listen to an easy message. My sermon was entitled You did not know when God came to save you.   I told them that preaching should tell people when they are wrong. I added that preaching can be a stern warning.

I referred to the day that Jesus rode into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. Over a hundred thousand people roared praise to Jesus saying, “Hosanna he that comes in the name of the Lord!” But Jesus was not elated with their praise. Instead, He began to weep. Doom had already been pronounced on the great city.

Jesus said in Luke 19: 41 Now when Jesus approached and saw the city, He wept over it, 42 saying, “If you had only known on this day, even you, the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 For the days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and surround you and close in on you from every side. 44 They will demolish you—you and your children within your walls—and they will not leave within you one stone on top of another, because you did not recognize the time of your visitation from God.”

I told them that 3 kinds of people were in the adoring crowd.

-There were those who followed Jesus and heeded His teachings.

-Then there were the religious leaders who despised Jesus and wanted Him dead.

-Finally, there were those who were oblivious to the whole matter.

Then I said all three of those kinds of people are in this tent and on these grounds.

Here me dear reader. Tonight, God warned California. He warned her about shutting down the church. He warned her about being the instrument of evil to America. He warned her that—without a statewide repentance—She too could be judged and removed.

Is California in the early stages of judgement with all the disasters and misery oozing out of their rebellion toward God?

Then I challenged the lost to consider that judgment was also an individual matter. “God does not want you to toss Him mediocre repentance but total repentance.” Conviction prevailed and many were cut to the heart. Nobody was fully prepared for what happened next.

They flowed to the front from everywhere. The souls did not hesitate. They tell me over 300 souls surrendered and were born again. Only God knows the true number.

We were supposed to take an offering. We did not. We were expecting to have a miracle service, but we did not. Why? Amos 9:13 explains it: “Behold, the days are coming,” says the LORD, “When the plowman shall overtake the reaper, And the treader of grapes him who sows seed…”

Amos speaks of a harvest so massive, it takes all winter, even into the next planting season to gather. When the plowman came to plow in the Spring, the reaper was still there. The harvest was so big tonight that we had to cancel everything else to gather it in. We had to tell the audience to be patient because the only thing we could do is minister to the new converts.

The crowd left knowing the shutdown of the church was over. Their hearts burned with hope and joy at the unfolding glory in their city. They are off to get others because Monday night is a miracle service. This explosion is the answer to decades of prayer. All glory be to Jesus!

FIVE PROVEN WAYS TO WIN SOULS IN CALIFORNIA

Jesus called His Father, the ‘Lord of the harvest.’ “…when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”” (Matthew 9:36-38)

Those words tell us a lot. It tells us that God the Father is leading the charge to win souls.  We then join Him in the harvest. It is a good reminder to us never to be intimidated by California culture. Yes, there is hostility, perversion, and hardness of heart. But none of that is a match for God.

Satan does not want you to believe there is a harvest in California—a vast harvest. If we only knew how many people God has right now on the verge of being converted to Christ, it would truly shock us all!

Here are five proven ways to win souls in California.

1. Be baptized in the Holy Spirit. Acts 1:8, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” The Baptism of the Holy Spirit was given, first and foremost, as a gift to empower soul winning. Every other benefit, while glorious, is secondary. The primary reason for this gift is: power to be a witness.

The Baptism will put wise words within you and boldness to speak those words. You may think you are too shy to witness. You may find it impossible to picture yourself sharing your faith. But the Holy Spirit will rise within you and make you a powerful and effective soul winner. Consider the difference the Baptism of the Holy Spirit made in Peter. He went from a man who was so afraid, to the point that he denied Christ three times, to a man who was as bold as a lion and who converted thousands on the day of Pentecost.

2. Write a short summary of your testimony. Revelation 12:11, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives unto death.” The most effective weapon you will ever use to win souls is your own account of how Jesus saved you. Memorize it. Make it a habit to refer to it often.

E. Stanley Jones was the Billy Graham of his day. He developed a debate forum where atheists and intellectuals were challenged to face off with Christians. Often he would not divulge who was going to defend the Faith before these prominent atheists. Then he would introduce his team: new converts. Time and time again the intellectuals would be stymied by the simple power of a changed life. No matter what they threw at these new believers, they would get the same answer back, “All I know is, once I was lost, but now I am found.” That is your edge!

We have all been told we need ‘ice breakers’ and deep theological statements in order to witness. Not true! What we need, and what the hurting soul needs is the simple story of your transformation.

3. Identify your harvest field. A better name for this is your circle of influence. These are people you deal with in your everyday life. They are hairstylists, waiters in your favorite restaurant, classmates, friends, and even family.

They know you. They have seen you on your good days and on your bad days. They already know what you believe, and they respect you. While it’s true that the whole world is our mission field, this is your primary harvest field.

It won’t be strange if the subject of your walk with Jesus comes up. This will happen because they have been watching your life. They can tell a difference between how you respond to problems, and what problems do to them. This is why we must live what we preach. They see the power of Christ in how we handle a crisis.

It is inevitable that an opportunity to share your miracle will present itself.

4. Reap the ripe harvest. Don’t argue with fools or angry people. It is a total waste of time and worse. Mark Twain said, “Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.”

The Bible says it this way: “Don’t answer the foolish arguments of fools, or you will become as foolish as they are.” (Proverbs 26:4)

Why waste your time trying to convince someone who only wants to fight? Especially when you are surrounded by people overwhelmed by their life and who have great anxiety about the future. They are asking deep questions. That is a harvest ready to be picked.

But there is another gigantic reason to discern the harvest, and it’s in the following two verses.

Joel 28, “And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh…”

John 16:8, “And when (the Holy Spirit) has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment…”

The first verse tells us something wonderful came upon all of humanity on the Day of Pentecost. The second verse describes what the Spirit Who fell on them is doing in them. Every human being is under the influence of the Holy Spirit. That influence is convicting them of sin, and warning them of the disaster of living their life without God.

How wonderful to realize that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit makes you the perfect voice to someone who is already under His influence.

5. Don’t just invite them to a meeting—bring them.

Here is exactly how we instruct people to bring souls to our Tent: Don’t just invite people—ask them to come with you. Pick them up and drive them to the tent. Buy them a meal either before or after the crusade. If it is before, it is a wonderful chance to brief them on what they are about to experience. Tell them they will hear a message that will encourage them and give them inner peace. Tell them that they will see a demonstration of the power of God that will confirm that what they are hearing is real and that it is the truth.  Or if you choose to go out afterwards, it is an outstanding opportunity to reflect on what happened during the meeting.

I work hard to enforce the atmosphere God wants in the Tent. Our theme verse is this: “Nevertheless, they stayed there a long time, preaching boldly, and the Lord proved their message was from Him by giving them power to do great miracles.” (Acts 14:3)

We don’t do fire tunnels, inner healing, personal prophecy, or marathon worship. Is it because we want a harmless user-friendly service? Not at all! You will see prophecy in the Tent that causes the hearers to be convicted of their sins. They will fall to their knees and “worship God, declaring that God is truly among you” (see 1 Cor. 14:25). There will be messages in tongues and interpretation. We do cast out demons. There will be instantaneous healings and addictions will vanish.

Can you guess the difference? Everything we do in the Tent is to show the lost soul that they are loved and that the power of God is real.

The bottom line is that we must win the lost in California. We have no excuse for not doing so, because the harvest is indeed ripe. Along with our regular worship we need services that are unselfish. You aren’t serious about winning the lost if there is no deliberate plan to get them there. You aren’t serious about winning souls if you make outsiders sit through 90 minutes of a single phrase like, “Open the floodgates of heaven.” You aren’t serious about winning souls if your meeting is strictly for saints to get a deeper buzz than ever before.

I challenge you to try the things I have written about in this blog. Just under the surface, California contains the largest harvest in America!

I SUPPORT TRUMP BECAUSE I WANT TO WIN SOULS

The Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution are masterpieces of freedom and equality. But they are something else: they are the foundation of the fairest system of religious freedom in history—a system that allows me to preach the Gospel.

There are many compelling reasons to support Trump: The Supreme Court, the unborn, national defense, and of course our economy. But the plain truth is that I must support whoever is trying to protect my freedom to preach the Gospel and I must oppose those who are trying to destroy it, because, bottom line, I want to win souls.

I do not want to restrict other religions; I simply want the freedom to tell the best story mankind has ever heard. When the Gospel is proclaimed, its superiority over all other religions and philosophies becomes self-evident.

Show me proof that Trump is a threat to winning souls, and I will stop supporting him. If you could show me proof that the Democrat Party is not trying to silence the Gospel, then I would stop attacking their policies.

If you could show me that it is Trump and not the Democrats who are going after religious freedom, I would change my tactics.

If you could answer these simple questions, I would instantly alter course:

  • Who regularly attacks the Bible? Who is censoring the Gospel on social media and wishes to do much more? Who has declared that preaching against sin is a hate crime? Who champions Islam and attacks Christians and Jews?
  • Which party’s candidates for President proudly state they they can be Christian and at the same time live a lifestyle the Bible calls immoral?
  • Who tries to put Christians out of business because they give to Christian organizations? Who, if they had their way, would make it impossible for me to rent land for tent crusades? (Those in power in California have told me that I have only a little time left before I must alter my message or be silenced.)
  • Who is ordering Christian public school teachers to call a 5 year old boy a girl in front of all the other children, if that is what that boy prefers?

My passion is to win souls. Show me how voting for a Democrat protects my right to do that.

And now, to my brothers and sisters in Christ who favor the Left over Trump because of your passion for social justice for illegal immigrants, transsexuals, and those on the fringes of society: Are you not buying into a half-cure? Are you not condemning them to a lifetime of dependency on government?

When you align yourself with George Soros—and worse, when you take his money—are you not aiding and abetting a false cure? Are you not a puppet in a final act that will remove freedom to preach the Gospel?

Show me any way that a confederation of Evangelicals and Leftists ends well. 

When will the oppressed ever be set free by being placed in a godless socialist institution and cared for by a cold government bureaucracy?  Isn’t socialism Einstein’s definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results? The addict who gets free needles is still an addict. The homeless who get token assistance remain homeless.  Only after they are born again are they free indeed.

Now let me address those of you who love Jesus but find Trump crude. We had a smooth and refined President for eight years who dismantled religious freedom and could not hide his hostility toward the Bible. I am not looking for impeccable manners—I only want to win souls.

If you want to win souls why would you attack the only candidate defending the Gospel?  And why would you empower the avowed enemies of soul winning?

And finally, did you notice that I didn’t attend—along with the galaxy of Evangelical celebrities—the Trump rally in Miami? Why? Because I only want to win souls. I don’t need a photo-op with Trump. I only need a President who will protect my freedom to preach the Gospel. That’s my unwavering goal.

I do not write blogs to win favor with the President. Even if I were invited to a state dinner I would only attend out of my love and respect for Trump. But I’d be out of there in a flash. I couldn’t get out of my tux and back into street clothes fast enough—to get back to the only thing I want to do: Win souls.

Kanye West

I find it quite ironic: Kanye West has turned his concerts into a mission while the church has turned its mission into a concert. He is winning souls, but getting criticized by believers who won’t win souls.

Is Kanye’s conversion real? Are his motives pure? Does he really know Christ? One honest look at the American church makes these questions seem bizarre. These are the very questions the American church should be asking itself, not Kanye.

It reminds me of the time the disciples got all territorial about anyone outside their group doing ministry:  “John answered Him, saying, ‘Teacher, we saw someone who does not follow us casting out demons in Your name, and we forbade him because he does not follow us.’ But Jesus said, ‘Do not forbid him, for no one who works a miracle in My name can soon afterward speak evil of Me. For he who is not against us is on our side.’” (Mark 9:38-40)

America is littered with religious centers that have permitted masses to worship without repenting—to believe they are saved without being converted.  Whole congregations are living in outright sin but they are hearing from the pulpit: “if you confess your sins, you offend God’s grace.” And we are worried about Mr. West?

Some are wondering if Kanye is building an empire in the name of Jesus for personal gain.  Whoa!  That question could be leveled at many celebrity preachers…maybe even your favorite.  We are surrounded by Carnal Christian Centers built entirely on marketing, smoke and mirrors, who want to question Kanye’s substance.

But the excuse for fearing Kanye West’s potential insincerity is dismissed by Paul the Apostle himself: 15, “Some indeed preach Christ even from envy and strife, and some also from goodwill: 16 The former preach Christ from selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my chains; 17 but the latter out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel.  18 What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is preached; and in this I rejoice, yes, and will rejoice.” (Phil. 1:15-18)

Any soul that sincerely reaches out to Christ in these rallies will be touched by salvation. Christ is being preached!  Woodrow Wilson said, “The proof that the Gospel is divine is the preaching it has survived.” And it will most certainly survive this.

Now I want to address one final danger: the danger of rejecting a modern Saul of Tarsus. The early church made that mistake, but thank God they recovered before it was too late. I am not so sure the American church knows what is good for it.  Just look at how many Christians refused to vote for Donald Trump even as he was fiercely battling on behalf of Christians and supporting Israel.

Jesus said, “You did not know the hour of your visitation.” Another translation said, “You did not know when God came to help you.” What if God is sending help, but we keep hypocritically sniffing at His help?  When Jerusalem rejected Paul, the result was a disaster.

God keeps on placing strange packages at our door. This is because when God saves America from self-destructing, no one else will get the glory.  I for one welcome God’s help, and that of everyone He sends.
