SOME HAVE THEIR EYES WIDE OPEN

Satan is flooding the world with evil.  Many believers are asleep—but not everyone. Some have their eyes wide open.

A lot of churchgoers yearn for soothing sermons. Meanwhile, a growing company seeks to understand authority, brokenness, and Resurrection Life. Who are these ‘others’ who have their eyes wide open?

They are too loud for most. They pray longer and deeper than what is ‘acceptable’ in respectable circles. They do their duty and suffer through meaningless concerts, seminars, and “Christian events.” But, their hearts are not in it.

Many Christians don’t want to talk about spiritual warfare because they hate confrontation.  These ‘others’ know we are at war with principalities and powers of evil.  These ‘abnormals’ are secret weapons—set apart for that perfect moment when God will unleash them on an unsuspecting world.

Professional church builders fear them because they scare away the ‘right people.’ Carnal believers despise them because they are a constant reminder of compromise.

In order to salve their conscience, those who oppose this remnant call them ‘abnormal.’  But they are not abnormal. They are very normal.  We have been subnormal for so long that normal looks abnormal.

Maybe you are one of those Jesus-followers who loves just a little too much—who wants more than everyone thinks is ‘right.’  Maybe they roll their eyes when you talk about things—awesome things you believe God can still do in this dark and evil time. Remember: to some Christians, you are a ‘fanatic.’ But, to them, the definition of a fanatic is anyone who loves Jesus more than they do…

They tell you your agitation is abnormal. They tell you to relax, but that just stokes your inner fire. They tell you, “God is in control and you don’t have to worry.” But you remember the Word of God, and it tells you to do something.  You know that God combs the earth for willing vessels who will throw off the glad rags of religion, take up the mighty weapons of God, and thrust the sword of the Spirit into the heart of the powers of darkness.

Well my ‘normal’ friend, it is time for you know what God is about to do.  It’s time for me to explain you, to you.

What will explain you, and then launch you, is this simple fact: GOD WILL NOT GIVE UP AMERICA WITHOUT A FIGHT.  He will strike with a force and fury that will leave the God-haters stunned and limp.

Satan has grossly underestimated what the Lord is willing to do to spare our nation.  You see that same overconfidence in those who follow the devil.

The concussion will also be felt within the church. Those preachers who traded their divine calling for the rewards of this world—those who flattered and dulled the saints—those who turned God’s army into a harmless social club—will be exposed.  Those who killed the natural urgency of the Body of Christ will be judged in this life, and not just in eternity.

Here’s what wrong with you, my ‘normal’ friend. You have seen the lie. You see that what lies beneath so much of today’s preaching is defeat. What they consider to be an uplifting message is in fact the white flag of surrender. It is summed up in this simple fact: THEY DO NOT BELIEVE AMERICA CAN BE SAVED.

They have resigned themselves to a new goal—a false goal—because they have lost faith in God’s goals.

Satan has sold the church fool’s gold.  Instead of taking up weapons mighty to the tearing down of strongholds, we pursue money, cheap grace, and celebrity, because of defeat and unbelief.

Faith has grown flabby.  They don’t know about the power of our weapons.  They don’t know the limitless extent of our authority.  And, it is because we don’t know our marching orders.  We don’t know what to say to this generation.

So now the stage is set for the ‘normal’ people to be used in extraordinary ways.

They will begin by challenging and defeating the lies of false government and political corruption. Peter recognized when government crossed the line.

Acts 4: 19But Peter and John replied, “Which is right in God’s eyes: to listen to you, or to Him? You be the judges! 20 As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”

Peter also understood what to do when a government tries to ban the Gospel:

Acts 5: 28: (the Jewish high council were) saying, “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name? And behold, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man’s blood on us!” 29 But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.”

The true warrior understands what is going on. They know the Left is coming after our freedom.  They know how they will force feed our children the Antichrist agenda.

What they don’t know is that you are waking up to your purpose and destiny.  God has called you out of the rank and file, the ‘sleepy heads’ who wander in and out of church. You are being groomed for special power in this hour.

The mighty God is creating people to turn the tide of wickedness.  He doesn’t care about your age or your education.  He searches for someone who is travailing over the evil, and who will die without power and purpose.  They want to be in the fight—and they want to be in the thick of it.

Isaiah 6: 8: “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I!  Send me.””

You are not abnormal…you are simply becoming normal! What you were created to be!  The Holy Spirit is energizing you to take a giant leap out of dead church life.  You are about to make a courageous declaration of war on the godless ideologies that are destroying our nation.  You are being overtaken by an irrevocable need to be in the middle of God’s greatest act in history. This is what the normal Christian life is supposed to be. Welcome to the war!

Still can’t support Trump?

You’re a Christian who still can’t support Trump? Let me share this fact with you: The people who hate Trump also hate you. They hate your faith. They hate your Bible. They hate your values. They hate Israel. They hate the Constitution and truth be told, they hate America. They hate you even if you don’t support Trump. They will hate you after Trump is gone.

They hated these things all along, only you weren’t supposed to know. You were supposed to be introduced to their radical agenda on the installment plan. But now they are in a frenzy and are throwing their gradual timetable to the wind and rushing everything. They are rushing: drag queens into story hours, gender bending subject matter into grammar schools, radical abortion policies, gun control and censorship. So, what’s their hurry? They are in a rage—such a rage, that they will openly refuse to stand up for the National Anthem and even chant their hatred against the highest office in the land at baseball games.

Two things happened that blew their cover.  Obama failed and Trump succeeded. None of that was supposed to happen. This is because the true socialist believes the only reason socialism has always failed is because “real socialism” has never been tried correctly. Every time it fails, they regroup and try again. They refuse to see that Socialism has imploded because it is a terrible system responsible for killing 100 million people in the last 100 years.

When Obama’s socialism failed, they put Hillary forward, hoping she would do the job. Trump was not supposed to win. His victory destroyed their plans. His presidency enraged them so deeply, they flew into a rage and started saying everything out loud that they had tried to keep a secret. They were forced into springing their trap early.

Again, they didn’t just start hating you when Trump won. They have hated you all along. You just weren’t supposed to find out so soon. It wasn’t their first choice to start censoring blogs, books, and speakers, but after Trump blew their cover, he drove them into a frenzy. Now they are out of control, spewing venom like a spitting cobra on drugs. The demented members of the ‘party of death’ are breaking every rule of free speech and tolerance. And they must be stopped.

I am amazed at how many Christians still do not stand with Trump. I hear the strangest excuses every day. I am curious to know how Trump can ‘hurt their feelings,’ while at the same time the hatred for God, tyranny, lies, and outrageous lawlessness of the Left doesn’t seem to bother them.

We must never spiritualize cowardice. We must never be confused about our duty. Our duty is to stop evil. “For this purpose was the Son of God manifest, to destroy the works of the evil one.”  And if there ever was a party of evil, it is the Socialist Party, formerly known as the Democratic Party.  God has placed Donald Trump in the Oval Office to be a wrecking ball, but he is not the one who is trying to wreck the church, Israel, freedom, marriage, or morality.

Believers who tell me they can’t support him whine, complain, and get holier-than-thou but never offer an alternative. Why? Because there is no alternative. When you tell me, “I am not going to vote for the lesser of two evils”, you are deflecting. Your non-vote is helping to assure that evil will prevail.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Not to vote for Trump empowers the people who hate you and your children. If they ever succeed in all their plans to change our precious land of the free into a socialist state, it is game-over for the last truly free country on earth. Stand up for liberty, pray for those in Washington, and vote for those who love America. We as believers can and must turn this nation back to God!

GROUND ZERO CHURCHES

Right before our eyes, the church is changing. The great focus of the soul-searching taking place in our lifetime is happening right now, and it is happening in mega-churches. Many of these super-congregations are realizing that they have reached the limits of their relevance to Americans.

Many leaders are coming to this shocking conclusion: Satan has done a number on us. Many now say the devil used a counterfeit church-growth model to deceive the gullible and discourage the faithful.   When righteous pastors looked at the staggering growth of Seeker Churches, they felt overwhelmed and even wounded.  They wondered, “What am I doing wrong?  Am I a fool to hold on to my integrity?”  

Growth seminars have proliferated all over America and they have preyed on weak Pastors. David Wilkerson said, “Ministers from small churches are being told, in so many words, ‘Attend this mega-church pastor’s seminar, and you will find the keys to success. You‘ll eventually have a church as big as his.’”

Yet these ‘keys to success’ are only causing pastors to become more discouraged. They end up being convinced that they are failures if they do not see spectacular growth.  They tell me, “I am not doing anything significant for God. He just isn’t using me.”

Many mega church experts now admit that ‘making nice’ with secular America did not have any impact on the spread of violence, perversion, and atheism.  To their dismay, they now confess that these things have greatly accelerated on their watch.  After our complete makeover and compromise of the Gospel message, society ended up hating us even more.

We have been trashed, bashed, and left for dead.  Now it is time for the Body of Christ to push back on all of the lies, threats, and ominous predictions about our demise.  America is ripe for the church to make a massive comeback.  You heard me, a massive comeback!

I know that all the experts are saying that the Church has lost America and will never get it back.  These kinds of lies have made the rounds for centuries.  Usually, they pronounce that the church is dead—right before a major revival takes place.  The last time I saw it was when the “God is dead” movement swept America in the 1960’s—only to be swallowed up by the Jesus Movement.

To see this take place we will need a new Church model, one that looks nothing like what we see today.   We need ‘Ground Zero Churches.’

Christian leader: take heed. I am pleading with you to consider a dynamic option for your church.  I want you to consider becoming a Ground Zero Church. That consists of a strong and healthy church which grows without stress, compromise, endless striving, or vicious competition.

Let’s define a Ground Zero Church.  They are the epicenter for God’s dealing with a specific region. They are a body of believers that have made the supreme covenant with God.  Here are the features of a Ground Zero Church:

1. They believe that God can do it here.  I wonder what would happen if, let’s say, we got a jumbo jet packed full of fired up Bible College students on their way to the mission field. We take off out of New York’s Kennedy Airport, headed for a country somewhere overseas.  Instead, we order the pilot to make very wide circles over the Atlantic for hours, finally landing somewhere in New Jersey.  As soon as we get off, we are hustled into vans and dropped in New York City.

I am convinced that they will raise the dead, save thousands, and deliver many from demonic oppression, and signs and wonders will abound— just because they think they are overseas.

Many Christians have deluded themselves into thinking that the reason miracles are not happening in America today is because the poor in foreign nations have a more simple faith. They think Americans are just ‘too sophisticated’ to respond.  The Bible paints a much different picture.  In Acts, God knocked Saul of Tarsus, the zealot-intellectual-Pharisee, flat on the ground.  He became the Apostle Paul, the chief architect of the New Testament Church.  And when the Holy Spirit first fell upon the Gentiles, it was in the house of Cornelius, a Roman Centurion, a powerful man of wealth and influence.

 2. Ground Zero Churches allow the Holy Spirit to transform their congregation into a core zone of irresistible glory:  Paul described the overpowering effect a church gathering could have on the outside world: 24 “But if all of you prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all. 25 And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you.” (1 Corinthians 14:24-25)

Matthew Henry commented on these verses, “God can, when he pleases, strike awe upon the worst of men, by the tokens of his presence in the assemblies of the faithful, and force them to acknowledge that God is with them of a truth.”

There are many examples of places where the overwhelming presence of God dropped hardened sinners to their knees.

-A reporter from London came to Wales to investigate the Welsh revival.  The presence he felt when he entered Wales shocked him. He exclaimed, “This is a nation haunted by God!”

-During the Great Awakening, hardened sailors on clipper ships reported being seized with conviction of sin when they entered certain zones off the American coast.

-When Jonathan “Praying” Hyde walked past the door to the bar at a hotel, sinners dropped off of their bar stools onto their knees and began weeping under the powerful conviction of the Holy Spirit.

-There are many true stories about revivals that took place in churches where the presence of God was so powerful that people who were just driving past the church would find their cars turning into the parking lot on their own. When the drivers got out, they were so overpowered by the Holy Spirit that they practically had to crawl to the door of the church. They would come, weeping, down to the altar to get saved.

3. Ground Zero Churches pull the trigger that God has hidden in their culture.

Throughout history, obedient missionaries who listened to God and observed the way God had prepared a culture through history, detonated revivals.  This gave them a supernatural relevance:

-700 B.C. a plague kills one third of the population of Athens.  Epimenides, a teacher who believed in the one true God, orders the city leaders to sacrifice prize rams and the plague stops.  They build an altar to the unknown God.  Paul pulls the trigger 744 years later, in Acts 17:23, “I even noticed that you have an altar to the unknown God.  He Whom you ignorantly worship, I openly proclaim!”

-Koreans had a name for God that did not come from any pagan religion.  White missionaries refused to call God by that Korean name, thinking it would be a compromise.  Finally, while in prayer, one of the missionaries realized that this name was the result of the dealing of God long ago in Korean history. The moment that He called God by that Korean name, revival exploded.

-The Lihue Indians wore knots of rope around their wrists.  A missionary from England, realizing that this was a symbol for their slavery to sin, preached that Christ cut these rope bands when He died on the cross.  Pandemonium struck, as tens of thousands of the Lihue started sobbing and begging to have their bands cut off.

We cannot fear what our culture looks like right now.  The Holy Spirit already has a message and a plan that is uniquely designed for this present darkness.  Seek the Lord and believe that He not only wants to, but that He will change your church into a Ground Zero Church, and save this lost nation of ours.

What Every Christian Must Understand

What you are watching unfold in the House of Representatives is not simple hatred, it is something deeper. It is total desperation. The Democrat elite are feverishly conducting a sham trial because they don’t know what else to do. However, this impeachment is simply one more of the same tactics they have been using all along.

It all began the night Hillary lost. They never imagined Trump would win. They had no contingency plan in case Trump won. Not even the hare when he was racing the tortoise was this overconfident. They were caught flat-footed. That November night in 2016, they became the party with no plan.

Then their worst nightmare began to materialize. Trump began making America great again. They became so desperate that they rooted for the economy to fail. They actually wanted poverty to increase. But most of all, they began to lie—and lie big.

Their next act was straight out of Hitler’s propaganda minister’s playbook.  Joseph Goebbels said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it, and you will come to believe it yourself. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Today, truth is the enemy of the Democrat Party.

Let’s examine the similarities in Goebbels tactics on behalf of the National Socialist Party and the American Socialist Party.

1. How is it possible for something like the Russian collusion hoax—which has been so utterly discredited—to still have so many who believe in it? Simple: Democrats told the lie often enough for people to believe it.

2. How is it possible that some of the Democrat elite believe it themselves? Goebbels was right, eventually you will come to believe it yourself.

3. The Democrat Party has shut down free speech. They work to destroy witnesses who oppose them. They called for a total information blackout to bury the consequences of their failures in those big cities where they are in power. Their failed policies have bankrupted those cities and turned them into hell holes. To maintain the lie, they summoned their cronies in the media, entertainment, and education to declare war on free speech.

But, when you have the truth you don’t shut down debate. You welcome opposing views. But they can’t, because any scrutiny reveals their monstrous failure.

4. From the moment Trump entered the White House they began their campaign of terror. They have used endless bogus investigations to deflect attention from their abysmal failures. Their tactic of misdirection has kept you and their constituents from seeing that they were doing absolutely nothing for the American people.

How did they get away with doing nothing?  Again, it’s simple: from their perches of power, leftists buttressed the ‘do-nothing congress.’  And their allies in the Fake News were silent. Hollywood celebrities glorified anything that was done to stop Trump. Democrats took an oath to serve the American people, and then lied through their teeth.

How right was Goebbels? “The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.”

5. They began to ask born again Christians to get out of the way. They celebrate abortions, calling them ‘magical.’ They attack the church at every turn. They check off every box of immorality. They have embraced atheism as they have made it crystal clear that believers are their enemy.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/12/09/abortion-funders-christmas-theme-abortions-are-magical/

6. And finally, there is the impeachment debacle. When you look into Nancy Pelosi’s eyes you see perplexity. She knows it is all smoke and mirrors. She can barely read the charges against Trump with a straight face. Democrats are starting to show liar fatigue…

So why do they keep going? For the same huge reason they started down this road to perdition: they fear Trump will be reelected.  They know they have a clown car full of candidates. Even Michael Bloomberg believes it. He said, “Trump will eat them alive.”

Here’s what truly terrifies them: If Trump can get this much done even with the total war Democrats have waged on him…what could he do in a second term with a mandate the Democrats can’t stop, and they face the specter of losing power in the House and Senate.

Why do they keep going? Why are they risking a tsunami of a backlash from the American people? Why persist in doing something that is so disastrous?

For the answer to that, we can turn to Macbeth. In the play, Macbeth kills King Duncan, Banquo, and Macduff’s family in response to the prophesies of the witches. He killed Duncan to make the first of the prophesies come true. Then he killed Banquo and Macduff in a vain attempt to PREVENT the other prophesies from coming true.

After these murders, he dreams he is in a river of blood. What he says next explains the Democrat Party’s descent into total self-destruction: “I am in blood stepped in so far that should I wade no more, returning were as tedious as go o’er.” Democrats feel that. They are in so deep that they feel they have no choice but to go through with it.

So once again, they must lie, break the law, cast aside rules and abandon all reason, because backing down now will be as tedious as going through with it.

You are watching spiritual warfare in its purist form. Every Christian must understand this or they cannot take the proper stand against it.

Let every believer learn a lesson. You may be able to defeat the prophecies of witches…but you cannot defeat the prophecies of God.

“Many are the plans of man, but it is God’s plans that will stand.” (Proverbs 19:21)

CALIFORNIA: WE DID NOT DISOBEY THE HEAVENLY VISION

I spoke one Sunday morning in Stockton, and that afternoon I took a nap before the evening rally. God gave me a dream. He told me that California Highway 99, from Red Bluff to Arvin, would be a raging river of healing and salvation. When I woke up I had no idea I was to have any involvement in fulfilling this prophetic dream. I assumed it was for the audience in Stockton, where I was going to preach that night.

Five years later, Rick Wiles gave us a beautiful new 8,000 square foot tent and 1,000 chairs. We suddenly knew that the dream I had in Stockton was a mandate for us. God had called us to take His miracle power down the full length of Highway 99.

At the same time we were given that tent, without our knowing about it, Frank Saldana and Inner City Action felt led to study how tents are erected, and were learning how to use them in ministry.  God was putting a team together.

At the same time, God was forming a close friendship between our ministry and that of Jim and Kristine Carpenter from The Bridge in Marysville. We knew Marysville would be our first stop on the Highway 99 corridor of Glory.

God made it very clear: no matter how little support you have—no matter how much resistance you face—no matter how impossible it looks, keep moving forward to set up the tent where the Spirit directs you, and don’t stop.

There was a reason God exhorted us in this way. Our journey always looked impossible. There was an amazing amount of resistance. We had to rely on support that came from shockingly unexpected sources. We had to repeatedly pick ourselves up, after many setbacks.

We learned the hard way that a great portion of the Body of Christ is not interested in winning souls—especially not in dangerous locations.

Marysville proved that our calling was truly supernatural. We had to fit our tent onto a parking lot that barely fit our tent. The weather turned cold and wet, and still, crowds came from everywhere. We saw the dream become reality when the river of healing and salvation broke out in Marysville. Thank God we were able to move the tent to a professional baseball stadium.  We closed out that first crusade in constant rain, and then the temperature dropped down to 40 degrees. But, in spite of this, it was packed!

We had no idea where the tent was supposed to go next. All of this was so sudden that we never had the luxury of advanced planning.

Then the Lord told us our next stop was to be Paradise, California. I protested, ‘Paradise is burned to the ground. There is no electricity or water there. Most of all, there are no people there.’  So I placed it back in God’s hands and said that, if we get a call to come to Paradise in the next week, we will go.

Seven days later we received that phone call, and during our time in Paradise we witnessed the power of God to save, to heal, and to bind up the many broken-hearted who had lost loved ones in the fire.

Our next tent crusade was in Stockton and was our most dangerous yet. We were shouted down. The fire department would not let us put on the sides to our tent, leaving us wide open to a park filled with addicts, the homeless, and gangsters. We were literally sitting ducks.  Yet again, we saw God overrule the powers of darkness as the openness worked to our advantage, and He gave us souls and miracles.

When we arrived in Dinuba, we proved the power of God in a way we had not seen in any other crusade. The entire town was aware of the tent sitting on the bare ground where the new Dinuba High School would soon be built. And, it was in Dinuba that we first encountered crowds that overflowed the tent.

The report of healing miracles spread across town, and the stories about how wounded souls were being transformed got out into the community, and it soon became clear that the entire city knew God was at work.

And finally, toward the end of November, the last tent crusade of 2019 took place in Hanford. It was the most powerful on every level. The unity among the pastors there was the best we had seen. The excitement level was greater than anywhere else. The altars were crowded every night with souls seeking Jesus. God did wonderful and undeniable healing miracles.

Thousands upon thousands were reached by Christ in this tour on Highway 99. Local churches have been fired up and equipped to expand and continue the revival.

Paul wrote in Acts 26:19 that he “was not disobedient to the heavenly vision.” And:

WE WERE NOT DISOBEDIENT TO AN IMPOSSIBLE CALLING!

To all who gave so sacrificially to make this tour possible—to all who prayed, worked and battled alongside us—to all who stood with us in the face of unimaginable resistance, both from inside and outside the church—to all of you I give my deepest thanks, and I am praying that God will richly bless all of you!

Now we come to the most astonishing news. Our momentum is carrying us forward into 2020. We are able to announce that we are going to continue down Highway 99 once again in the coming New Year. The Lord has directed us to reach 5 cities in 2020, and these dates are locked in:

Everything in me is telling me these meetings will be bigger, more powerful and more effective than any tent crusades we have held so far. God is taking us from reaching thousands to reaching tens of thousands. We very strongly desire your prayers. We need your church to back these outreaches. We are praying the Lord of the Harvest to send the needed workers.

And so, dear friends, by the grace and power of the Holy Spirit, and with your continued support, the river rages on!  Join us for our first event in Chico.

Special nights of miracles in Chico to kick off the California tent tour!

 

YOU CAN’T STOP WHAT JESUS IS BUILDING

I have a message for you, enemy of God: Christ is still a carpenter and He is still building His church. The Kingdom of God is under construction. While your world is falling apart, ours is coming together.  Jesus said it Himself, “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16:18)

The rage of California; New York elitism; secular progressive education; Hollywood; and Silicon Valley— all these self-identify as the Gates of Hell.  And thus, according to the Son of God, they shall not prevail. YOU CAN’T STOP WHAT JESUS IS BUILDING. You are no match for the Mighty One who is building His church.

Don’t be fooled by your artificial gains.  It may seem like the faithful have been driven underground. It may look like perversion is prevailing.  By your measure, oh enemy of Christ, the church has either been diluted, counterfeited, or flat-out neutralized in America. But the truth is: it is all a façade.

 

Have you succeeded in creating a post-Christian America? Don’t pop the champagne cork just yet. California and New York can pass all the laws they want. They will not suffocate the Word of God. They will only play into God’s hands. Are you attempting to deny the hunger of the human heart for Jesus? That strategy will only increase the hunger for the true reality of God’s Kingdom.

Politicians and influencers with immoral lifestyles claim to be Christian, hoping to blur the truth of the Bible. That too will backfire.  Jesus said, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my Word will not pass away.”

And let all false ministers beware as well. You are the unwitting partner of Satan who is working to dull the saints of God into a false faith. You lied about holiness. You caved-in to the culture, hoping to negotiate a truce with evil.  Even you can’t stop Christ from building true disciples.

Somewhere out there, in an unknown church, believers who want nothing but Jesus Himself, huddle together, seeking His face. I have a word for you: You have no idea how close you are to a breakthrough. God is building you into something unstoppable!

Somewhere out there, right now, broken and humble pastors are shedding tears over the fierce assault that is attacking their ministry. They have no idea why they must hold on just a little bit longer.  Dear pastor: If you filter out the taunts of the devil, you will hear the sound of Jesus building something amazing through you.

Paul said in 1 Corinthians 3:10 “According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. 11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. The foundation is sure.” Truly, we as believers are all building beside the Lord, and at the same time “as living stones, we are being built up into a spiritual house…(so) proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light!” (1 Peter 2:5 & 9)

The foundation is so sure that nothing can destroy it. Everything built on this foundation becomes eternal.  Just ignore the railings of man and fold yourself into the surpassing power of God Who creates ministries out of impossible situations. It is time to laugh at the devil, and find renewed might in ministry.

It is time to dust off the words of the old spiritual:

“I’m working on the building.
It’s a true foundation.
I’m lifting up a bloodstained
Banner for the Lord.

“I’ll have a good time
Working on the building.
I’m going to heaven
To get my reward.

“When you see me praying,
I’m working on the building.
I’m lifting up a bloodstained
Banner for the Lord.

“Well, I’ll never get tired
Working on the building.
I’m going to heaven

California’s 2020 Wake up call

President Trump was right to give Gavin Newsom an ultimatum.  The people of California are suffering from a plague of addictions, homelessness, and lawlessness that has reached critical mass.  However, God is also issuing a wake- up call to the Golden State. He is shaking, purifying and rebuilding. God-haters beware! You who have your hearts set on a fully secular, socialist state that has no place for the church of the Lord Jesus Christ, know this: God is even now rolling up His sleeves to do a work—a work of extremes.

This impending act of God will consist of two things: joy and terror. Watch as those who shake their fists at God find themselves fighting against God—and losing that fight!  I say to you: God will take away your sleep. He will remove your arrogance. He will defeat your most trusted weapons. He will take down your secret tactics. He will turn the tide of public opinion against you.

These are the days of Elijah! This is California’s reckoning with truth and righteousness. God has surveyed the cities. He has heard and heeded the cries of His intercessors, and God has had enough of what they are doing to our children.

The roar of the words of the Psalmist is heard on high: “It is time for You to act, O God, for they have regarded Your word as void.” (Psalm 119:126)

It is only one tent, but what has happened under this tent in 2019 matters very much. Yes, the sick have been healed. Yes, the lost have charged into the Kingdom. But, in addition, a mighty army has formed. I have looked into their eyes and I have seen the fire of God blazing in them.

They are a new breed of believer—the kind that multiplies faster than anyone can know, and who will reach out with power like no Christians before them. They are ready. They are coming.  And, they will multiply in numbers unseen since the days of Azusa Street and the Jesus Movement.

God’s wake up call to the God-haters is simple: You have held sway over California for too long and your days are numbered, and your agenda is coming to an end!

But God’s wake-up call to the church in California is even greater.

God is saying to every pastor in the state: “Stand your ground. Stay on message. Hold on, for fire is about to fall on the smaller churches, the hungry churches.”

Though you be not many in size, His watchword to you is: “STAY!” Don’t give the cities away. Don’t sell out and move to a “safer” state.

You are not just to stay, but to make signs and wonders your weapon to stem the tide of evil. Let miracles flow. Preach a pure message—a message that God can crown with miracles.

Not only do we believe we should stand our ground, but as you can see from the map, we are investing more than ever in California. We are going to hold 5 tent crusades in 2020. We don’t want demons to feel at home here anymore. We are declaring that they are to pack up and move out! This is your eviction notice!

Acts 14:3 says, “Therefore they stayed there a long time, boldly in the Lord, Who was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.”

God is saying: Pray the Lord of the Harvest. Matthew 9:37 Then (Jesus) said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

Each night, in every city we have visited, the crowd was amazed to see the river of souls flowing to Christ. It is no accident! We sent out workers. We went into the nests of evil to extract treasures out of the darkness. In 2020 we will double the number of workers—but the church still needs to be jolted awake.

The wake-up call that California’s Celebrity-Christians need is clear: God is not fascinated by your programs or your slick presentations. He is trying to save and deliver millions here who currently writhe in untold misery. Many believers who live here seem think this is someone else’s job. That is why we lost the state in the first place: because we thought someone else was going to do that job.

People mean well when they walk up to me and say, “Mario, you are doing a good work.” I reply, “No, I am not doing a good work…I am doing the work.” This work is OUR work. It is the real work of the church. Everything else is just distraction—something we made up and called it the work.

The Lord of the harvest is sending out laborers into His harvest.  It is time for every believer to arise, wake up, and find their place in this supernatural work in California. The evil that is being worshiped here cannot continue indefinitely. At some point it will implode.  Whatever we are going to do to touch California, we must do now. Pray, and obey the voice of God if He directs you to come and work beside us.  WELCOME TO THE WAR.
