THE WORD OF GOD AND SUBMISSION TO GOVERNMENT.

The disturbing treatment of Canadian Polish Pastor, Artur Pawlowski can happen here. Biden tweeted: The rule is now simple: “Get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do.” Only it is not a rule. Time for clarity from the Bible on submission to government.

The sad truth is that Democrats  have declared war. They are demanding unconditional surrender. No only from the church but from innocent citizens. Their war compels believers to look again at what the Bible says about evil laws and evil leaders.

Doesn’t the Bible tell us to obey them no matter what? Absolutely not. And it is shocking how many believers do not know their Bible or have been given false teaching. There is no verse in the Bible that tells you to obey evil government or laws.

Many, including onlookers in the video capturing the arrest shouted, “Shame on you guys, this is not Communist China. Don’t you have family and kids? Whatever happened to ‘Canada, God keep our land glorious and free’?”

If we don’t realize this now, we will sit back and let our nation be destroyed.

Christians during the American Revolution understood that the Bible does not teach us to obey evil laws or leaders. There would be no America if Christian Colonists believed they should obey the evil laws of England.

Let me prove to you beyond any doubt that the Bible tells us what we must do in the face of wicked government and laws.

First, I will expose a pathetic heresy that many believers commonly accept as truth. This is a widespread excuse for submitting when we should disobey.

Here is an example of someone who wrote me while under the influence of this false teaching:

“Out of curiosity, how do you justify your argument against obeying the government when you read Romans 13:1-7. The government Paul was talking about was even more oppressive than anything we can imagine. You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government. And, what was Paul’s response? Did he call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above, he said, in the face of a brutal government, to obey. He didn’t say obey if your rights are recognized, he said obey. The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.”

This defense of submission to evil government is riddled with error and falsehoods. Here are my responses to selected quotes:

1.You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government.” First the writer tells us to obey evil laws, but then mentions martyrs. They never would have been martyred had they not broken the law by being Christians.

2. Then he asks, “Did (Paul) call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above…” The truth is, Paul did all of the above. “Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out” (Acts 16:37).

3. And finally, the zinger—the heresy that has sidelined the Body of Christ in the hour when we are most needed: “The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.” Totally untrue. William Wilberforce was a Christian who used his faith in Jesus to abolish slavery in England. In fact, believers throughout history have created child labor laws, health regulations, and have exposed injustice, and corruption. It is safe to say that Christians are more responsible for influencing government, bringing about reform by forcing laws to be changed, and standing up for justice, than any other group in history.

So how did this writer get it so wrong? By doing what so many do. Isolating one set of verses, taking them out of context, and arriving at a conclusion that looks holy, but is in fact, pure and simple fear.

Let’s look at the verses that have been violated:

“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore, you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor (Romans 13:1-7).

It seems to say that we are to honor government in every form, right? Wrong. To demonstrate what Paul is saying I offer this example. Say some parents leave the house, and leave the oldest child in charge. The child is given strict instructions not to open the door for anyone, except for a postal messenger whom they are expecting to deliver an important package that day.

The parents tell the child, “He will have blonde hair. He is wearing blue jeans and a white shirt. Don’t let anyone else in.” So later, a man with black hair, a blue shirt, and black slacks knocks on the door claiming to be the messenger with the package. Do they let him in? Of course not.

Lost in all the quoting of this verse on submission to government is the most important part: The description of the ruling authority. The Bible tells us what they are wearing! Look at the description:

1.They are not a terror to good works. Any government that terrorizes the innocent is not of God. How can you say that Hitler was God’s will for Germany? Hitler and other tyrants are in fact the ones being warned that there were God appointed governments who would destroy them: “But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.”  That is why the just powers of the world rose up and destroyed the Nazis.

2. They praise good works. Authorities that are endorsed by God do not hate or oppose Christian activity. They are the ones who—even if they are not Christian themselves—do not insult soul winning or fight the work of God. They are the cops, teachers, politicians who are glad that children are getting out of gangs and off of drugs.

3. You must be subject for the sake of conscience. When it becomes tricky, is when government is a mixture of right and wrong. Jesus said of the Pharisees, “Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, but do not do” (Matthew 23:3).

Do what they say, but don’t partake of their hypocrisy. Watch them for that moment when they cross the line and come between you and your God.  Just as our conscience should drive us to obey the law, we should also know when our conscience tells us not to obey an evil law.

Here’s when Peter reached that tipping point, speaking to those very same Pharisees: “So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:18-20).

And again, in Acts 5:29, “Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.””

God not only does not endorse evil government: He will have no part in it. “Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with You—they who frame and hide their unrighteous doings under [the sacred name of] law?” (Psalm 94:20). There is your answer. A corrupt throne (government) cannot be allied with God. He cannot have fellowship with it. 

When a government creates evil laws God cannot be allied it—because evil laws are the worst form of wickedness.

 They are damnable because they give legitimacy to evil.  Matthew Henry said, “Iniquity is daring enough even when human laws are against it, which often prove too weak to give an effectual check to it; but how insolent, how mischievous, is it when it is backed by a law! Iniquity is not the better, but much the worse, for being enacted by law; nor will it excuse those that practice it to say that they did but do as they were bidden.”

Notice how at the end, Henry says we can’t use the excuse that we were just obeying the law.  That is why 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.”

The laws being created by Democrats, using the coronavirus as an excuse, are far worse than the virus itself because, unlike the virus, those new laws become permanent.  It is time for the church to wake up and take action, beginning with voting the evildoers out of office and quit calling our submission a godly thing, when it is just a cowardly thing.

“WHO WILL RISE UP FOR ME AGAINST THE EVILDOERS? WHO WILL STAND UP FOR ME AGAINST THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY?” (Psalm 94:16).

GOD WILL EXPOSE THE EVIL THEY ARE DOING TO AMERICA.

Someone has wrapped a noose around the neck of free speech and every other right we hold dear. TRUTH is being choked to death in America. Tech giants wield crushing control over people’s opinions. I have never seen them as anything but greedy and power hungry.

And yet, I feel a calm sense of hope amid their tyranny.

The elements of the media, key intellectuals, and some mainstream institutions that have been trusted and objective in the past are strangely quiet during the censorship, the silencing, and even the cancel-culture obliteration of many American lives.

And still, I feel a great hope, even in this situation.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, along with the Democrat Party have declared war on the 80 million Americans who voted for Trump. They will not work with any Republicans. They will not stop until they have destroyed everything good and decent about America.

And again, I am convinced God will expose and even exploit their evil.

2021 has been a year full of evil forced on the American people. Beginning with an election they forced on us–then a lock down–and perversion of our education, and finally, a total abandonment of Israel.

Yes, what is happening to America is evil. Preplanned and premeditated evil. We are watching something that was hatched decades ago and is finally upon us. So why do I feel hope in a seemingly hopeless situation?

I feel hope because I know it is evil. I feel hope because I know what God has done about evil in our history.

Genesis 50:20 explains what I mean: “But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.”  Those words were spoken by Joseph to his brothers who had sold him into slavery. That vicious act was exploited by God to promote Joseph into a position of royalty in Egypt, in order to save a nation from famine.

It is time for you to settle your spirit behind a historical fact. God has always dealt with evil in America, even when we did not deserve it. It is not by accident that ‘wokesters’ have tried to bury our history. It is there that we find the irrevocable evidence of God’s intervention in America. It is not simply the people of America that God loves, it is the idea of America. In order for that idea to be destroyed, you would first have to get past our omniscient and loving God.

Many believers are throwing in the towel too early. We could very easily see a miracle in a few days. That miracle would cause unprecedented nationwide convulsions. Or it could take longer. But one way or another, surely and eventually, the evil will be exposed and it will be punished.

God may do it by changing the tide of public opinion. Another way is by exposing the evil acts and those who have committed the evil. One thing has already begun:  because Fake News outlets such as CNN have openly called for the shutting down of any news outlets that do not spout Democrat Party propaganda, such as One America News Network and Newsmax, Christian conservatives have been forced to build their own mass media—something they should have done long ago.

Another way may be the sudden groundswell of hunger for righteousness, which I see sparking mass conversions. The tide of revival is only just now beginning to crash upon our shores.

What the minions of Satan mean for evil, God will exploit for good, in order to save many.  You can either let the images of blasphemy and arrogance drain your spirit or you can take your stand, lift up your head and anticipate the inevitable intervention of the Holy Lord of the Armies of Heaven!

I am so excited to be able to offer this Master Class on Warfare and FirePower. I have always yearned to train the remnant on firepower—the power that damages the enemy and moves the army of God to meaningful breakthroughs against sickness, and demonic strongholds.
This weekend of classes will skip the fluff. You will find the weapons that tear down strongholds. I am reallly excited to be teaching all the classes with you.
We do not just need an army—we need an army that can defeat the new threats and win a nation back to God.
Again, the class is Free but you must register.

HERE IS HOW WE SHOULD RELATE TO JOE BIDEN

Voices that are posturing as moral agents are asking you and me to lay down our resistance to the ongoing tyranny in America. They say that the moral and loving thing to do is accept Joe Biden and his administration. The awesome of thing about America and the Bible is that there is a huge case for not caving in.

How then, should we as Christians, relate to Joe Biden? We will know how to relate to Biden when we answer these two questions:

A. What is Joe Biden?  B. What does the Bible say about relating to what he is?

1. What is Joe Biden? It sounds funny to ask what instead of who. However, it makes total sense. It is what Joe Biden is that is affecting us, more than who he is. It is what he is that is the force behind his actions. Coming to grips with these questions will bring us resolution, and then we will not feel guilty or hesitant to do what the Bible says.

Joe Biden is a tyrant. Here are the facts:

He wants to make it a criminal act to question his election. Joe Biden led the charge back in 2016 to question the validity of Trump’s election. He felt that he and all Trump-haters had the right to question that election, but now, no one has the right to question the validity of his election. Joe Biden is against free speech when it threatens him.

I believe Biden is working with the DOJ to identify anyone who still believes that Trump won, and not only identify them as homegrown terrorists—but to close down their businesses. As I wrote in a recent blog, Glenn Kirschner, a Biden operative has launched a campaign to force “every business in America” to take a pledge that states, in part, that “The 2020 presidential election was free and fair, and produced accurate, reliable results.https://mariomurilloministries.wordpress.com/2021/03/24/the-latest-tyranny/

If Joe Biden honestly believed he was elected legitimately—if he was an American who is truly looking out for you and me—he would demand a full investigation of the election and settle the doubts of the American people once and for all.

He would want every voter in the U.S. to have confidence in the election process. He certainly would not be using his office to smother anything that challenges his power. He certainly would not be fanning the flames of division and slander toward what is likely a majority of Americans.

Joe Biden has exhibited a depraved indifference toward the welfare of Americans.  By throwing open the door to the southern border and welcoming illegals, he has allowed undocumented aliens to bring in a variant strain of the coronavirus. Untold numbers of potentially sick people have been released into our communities. That is a simple fact.

Why is he locking down Americans on the one hand, while releasing new viruses on the other hand? The answer is a coldblooded need by the Left to hold on to power. The lives lost by a new wave of infections is not as important as repopulating America with fresh Democrat voters.

Joe Biden believes he, and not the Constitution guarantees our liberty.  He said this in his speech, “By July the 4th, there’s a good chance you, your families and friends, will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout or a barbecue and celebrate Independence Day,”  But Biden and his health experts have added some major caveats: that the gatherings would need to be small, and that there should be no “large events with lots of people together.” He is saying, that our freedom comes by his permission. 

Jesus will provide us with the true example of how to behave at this dark moment in American history. Luke 13:31-32, “At that very hour some Pharisees came up and said to Him, ‘Go away from here, for Herod is determined to kill You.’ And He said to them, ‘Go and tell that fox [sly and crafty, skulking and cowardly], Behold, I drive out demons and perform healings today and tomorrow, and on the third day I finish My course.’”

Jesus is saying what Herod is—a fox. Then he is saying I am not concerned about your threats. I will finish my course. 

Albert Barnes said in his commentary, “Tell that fox—A fox is an emblem of slyness, of cunning, and of artful mischief. The word is also used to denote a dissembler. Herod was a wicked man, but the “particular thing” to which Jesus here alludes, is not his “vices,” but his “cunning, his artifice,” in endeavoring to remove (Jesus) out of his territory. (Herod) had endeavored to do it by stratagem – by sending these (Pharisees) who pretended great friendship for his life.

“”Behold, I cast out devils”—(Jesus is saying), Announce to him the fact that I am working miracles in his territory, and that I shall continue to do it. I am not afraid of his art or his enmity. I am engaged in my appropriate work, and shall continue to be, as long as is proper, in spite of his arts and his threats.”

How then should we as Christians relate to Biden?  Biden has ignored science to keep ungodly control over America and the Church. He has demonstrated that his actions are outside the law of man and God. We must relate to him as a rogue president, and we must therefore relate to God as our Leader at this moment.

We are not to be violent or riotous. We are not to engage in wild conspiracies or railing accusations. We are, however, to tell Biden we are going to be the Church. We are going to believe what the Bible says about sexual sin and gender. Biden cannot tell us to stop meeting, while at the same time allowing BLM, Antifa, and illegal aliens to overrun our nation.

We are going to continue the work of God, without interruption. No matter what.

A New Journey Awaits You

When I started working on this blog, I had no idea that the whole USA and most of the world would be on quarantine, whether mandated or voluntary. I’m sitting at home doing my part to keep people safe – how about you?

This season in the world with COVID-19 and social distancing, we might have more time to reflect on our lives, whether we are homeschooling or cleaning closets. Why don’t we take a few minutes each day and ask ourselves some questions? Depending on our answers, we might want to reset some goals, cross off some completed ones, and make some new goals.

Here are some questions to think about:

1). Am I lonely even if I live with people? Robin Williams said you could be lonely in a room full of people. If you answer, yes I am, let me help you dig deep and see if you can figure out why it is true. Then let’s see how to make a change.

2). Am I disconnected from my birth family? Why? What difference does it make?

If you have read this far, I know you are thinking about changes. Please consider reading the articles on the home page of outofthepigpen. I think you will find a path out of the disappointing, wrong turns taken in your life and into a new lifestyle. This blog is all about hope for a better future! 

 

THIS IS WHAT THEY TRIED TO WARN US ABOUT RIGHT BEFORE THEY DIED.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

PRAY FOR LIVING PROOF SACRAMENTO!

HERE IS WHY THE FIREPOWER MASTER CLASS CANNOT BE LIVE STREAMED.

Announcement: We have decided not to live-stream the upcoming FIREPOWER Master Class. Not only that, there will be only one authorized video recording. Those in the class will even be required to turn off their phones. No unauthorized recording will be allowed.

Some have told us that they hoped these sessions would be live streamed, in order to save them from having to travel to Fresno, CA. I beg you to reconsider—if traveling distance should be the factor in your decision.

Why am I going to these extremes? The short answer is that we are in a war. America is under the domination of an anti-Christian power-structure. The threats are real. Their tactics are insidious. They want to use anything they can to discredit Christianity.

They are not the only problem. Lukewarm and counterfeit Christians are also a threat to revival. You cannot imagine how some of them are offended by songs about the Blood of Christ. Still others are in their pulpits pressuring believers to just submit quietly to laws that may silence the Church in America permanently.

Even many of the Christians you and I see as harmless, are a potential threat. They are giddy, relying on entertainment and concerts to push back the enemy. They have an immature picture of evil and also of God’s authority. They believe they can flirt with evil. They believe they can fight, but only lightly, and fairly.

God has given me a true profile of the kind of believer it will take to save our freedom and win back this nation. I must have the freedom to speak forcefully—and in some cases bluntly—to the devastating division and ignorance of many believers.

For an example, I deeply respect Franklin Graham, but I believe he is ill-advised to say that we should accept the results of the last election and just pray for the Biden administration. He is a highly visible Christian leader who likely does not understand that to mollify the Left with such policies sets us up to accept fraudulent elections in the future.

Not only that, but there are many bills that have passed the House that are nothing short of evil. These bills, if they ever become law, are designed to destroy our Constitution—the last firewall against Democrat tyranny. That threat can never be adequately met with ‘Christianity-lite’.

I must be free to instruct, rebuke, and inform to the degree that this national crisis demands. That is simply a conversation which is too private to leave open to everyone.

Finally, in-person sessions are especially essential for FIREPOWER. I am going to pray for you. I am going to ask for the fire of God to fall on you. What if there is such a drenching of God, and transforming of those who attend, that we need more than just the normal session to make room for it?

One of my heroes and a personal mentor, was David Wilkerson. He had gatherings with pastors that were legendary for the depth of God’s dealing with those who attended. It is what we need today, as the curtain of freedom is coming down on us. God wants to make warriors who are equipped for this ongoing threat.

I cannot implore you enough to make time for this event. If you simply cannot attend, then be assured that we will review the footage and release what the Holy Spirit says to release.

I urge you—do not hesitate to secure your place at FIREPOWER!

With Love, Nana Ann

Welcome! I’m glad you found me. Today I’m sitting on the front porch thinking about all of us who live or have lived a life that we never thought would be our life. Even though there is a kind of sadness in that, there is also the hope of a change. This is not the “wishful thinking” kind of hope. This is the deep, living hope from God based on His promises to help us.  Funny thing about hope….it hangs around just waiting for us to discover it. Actually, I believe hope is alive. Like love and faith, it just waits for us to say in our hearts, “I wonder if there is hope for me”? Then hope springs into action, and we find ourselves willing to look at things to see if there is a better path to follow for the rest of our lives.

Maybe, right now, you are saying…..right-  duh!……I’m not even going to ask if there is hope for me because I know there isn’t. Please, just say it anyway because an old lady you don’t even know (me), asked you to. Like a Grandmother who has lived long enough to see how things really work says lovingly to you, “Honey, just try it.”  I’m asking you because I know that hope is stirring in your heart. After all, you are reading this blog!

Try it and let me know what happens. I can’t wait to hear from you.

Sitting on the porch wishing you would drive up, sit down with me and tell me what’s up in your life!

William Evan’s Story About Home

Many long years ago when I was a very small boy, and my younger sister was a very small girl, we lived in a house that had a very large front yard.  The front of the yard, furthest from the screen-enclosed front porch of our house, bordered a Farm to Market road.  The road was fairly busy and several Chinese Tallow trees (better known in this part of Texas as chinaberry or tallaberry) bordered our yard, close to the road.  I spent much time in one of those trees, reading about Tarzan and learning about gravity by jumping from one limb to the other and frequently tumbling to the ground.

Though I do not recall the offense, I do recall that there was a day when my sister decided she had to leave the house for good and so she ran away; all the way to the very edge of the road near the trees in the front yard… and there she lay in the tall grass for what seemed like forever. 

I was concerned and delighted as only an older brother could be.  I was fascinated by what might happen to my sister as she exercised her self-will and decided to do what she pleased.  Though, as my sister was sensible enough to follow the rule of not going into the street as she left home, I was becoming more interested in my mother’s reaction to my sister’s act of defiance.

As forever was slowly ticking away, I decided that the experiment was going stale and went to tell my mother that my sister had left home… that my sister had run away!

My announcement that a beloved member of our family was gone forever was not greeted with what I felt was the appropriate amount of consternation, or even dismay.  My mother calmly stopped whatever mothers did in those days, walked to the front porch, glanced outside through the screen, and then went back inside to continue her business.        

I went back outside and kept my sister company in her leaving home adventure.  I did not sit very close, as my sister was obviously taking pains to remain hidden in the grass, but I sat close enough that I could see her.

This watching got old very quickly and, as my attention span was appropriate to my size, it was drawn elsewhere, as only a small boy’s attention can be, and I left my sister in her misery in the grass underneath the tree by the road.

I don’t recall what prompted my sister to come back to the house and to stop running away, but she came back with more hurt feelings than she left with.  She was very upset that no one came to find her.  My mother hugged and comforted my sister appropriately and told my sister that she had been watching her and waiting for her to come home.  This announcement, that she had been watching her, was quietly greeted with skepticism since she had been so very far away.     

Several years ago, I decided to visit as many of the homes that I grew up in as I could find.  When I returned to the home in this story, I was staggered by how small the house was and by the tiny front yard and the scraggly trees still lining the road.  Why, I could practically cross the entire yard in several long steps!  I felt like I had stepped into a time warp.  My very small boy memory and reality clashed there underneath the trees where I learned of gravity. 

It became clear to me that my mother was not concerned those long years ago because she could see my sister the entire time my sister was running away.  Further, my mother knew she could rapidly get to my sister if my sister had taken the next step in self-will and left the yard.

The Death of the Hired Man is a poem written by Robert Frost.  A line in the poem says, “Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in”.  I believe this to be true.

In contrast to the sentiment that Frost expressed, novelist Thomas Wolfe wrote a book titled You Can’t Go Home Again.  I think you can go home again.  You may be different when you arrive, but you can still get there.

Best of all, thousands and thousands of years ago, a man called Jesus, told a tale of a young man that left home in self-will.  This young man in Jesus’ story demanded his inheritance that was his by right, and left his home for reasons that are not stated, but that would make perfect sense to any of us that have ever left home.  The young man lived his life according to his conscience and his desires, limited only by his shrinking budget.  Until at last the young man ran out of money (and the kind of friends that money brings) and found himself in a pigpen wrestling with pigs over scraps of food.  This young man decided to return to his home and to the Loving Father and family he left behind.

The Loving Father sees the young man coming back home and runs to greet him and makes him welcome and restores the young man to the family.  The older brother who had been working faithfully in the fields for his Loving Father while his younger brother has been away partying like a wild man becomes upset by his Loving Father’s extravagance and you just know there is going to be trouble from the Good Son as time goes on.

Jesus closes the story before we learn of what kind of trouble or how much, but we all know ourselves, and we all know our fellow man, and we know that hurt feelings and difficult conversations are coming to that house.

When those that were organizing the ancient Book of Life that is called the Bible titled this particular story The Prodigal Son, they may have missed the focus.  To my mind, the story would be more aptly titled, The Loving Father.

I was recently asked what home is.  And more importantly how does one get back home after leaving, particularly if the person left in an unhealthy way.

It seems to me that all of us are caught up in leaving and returning… almost a pattern, if you will, or a dance of leaving and returning.

And to what do we return?  What home is there to return to?  Do “they” really have to let you in when you return?  The Good Son is always working in the background.  How far to run is too far? Prostitution?  Gluttony?  Never stopping when you are full, but always having those last few bites, that last snack?  Anger?  Using your emotions as a weapon or a tool to accomplish your will?  Alcoholism?  Child Molesting? Murder?  Unforgiveness?  Keeping those who have wronged you on the hook as it were, never letting them go and keeping yourself bound as well?  Shame?  Self-loathing?  How far is too far?

Oh, the degrees and subtleties and nuances of our very own pigpen!

I believe that home is Love… that the Loving Father that Jesus spoke of is home.  I believe that the return to Love is as simple as glancing His way… and as difficult as setting aside our self-will and the harm we do to ourselves and those around us.  I believe that Love is as close to us as the air Love provides.  I believe that to even sigh with longing in Loves direction will draw you to Love, to wholeness, to Life.

I can’t tell you what might happen when you turn your face to Love.  Love both calls to and responds to each of us individually, as Love created us individually.

I am a loving father myself, not even in the same sentence should I be mentioned with The Loving Father, the Creator who is very Love itself, but even I know how to respond to the three people that are my children.

I knew how to respond to them when they could only cry or whimper, when they were helpless.  I knew how to respond to them as they grew older and more articulate.  I know how to respond to them now when they are grown and married and have children of their own.

You are in a very small yard watched over by a very Loving Father.  A Father who loves you so much that He lets you run away.  A Loving Father waits for you.  Come home to Love.

HAPPY BIRTH PERSON DAY YOU PASSIVE DOLT.

Woke Folk cannot leave anything alone. They can never find enough things to be offended by, or to categorize as ‘racist’. To them, nothing is innocent. Now the Woke are trying to desecrate Mother’s Day 2021—the first one in my life that I have spent without my mom. Their latest invented category, designed to obliterate ‘Mother’ from our vocabulary, is: Birth Person. A term invented by crazy person?

Apparently, Birth Person liberates us from the racist, sexist, oppressive title of Mother. How stupid is that? How inane is that? Anyone who feels victimized by being called Mother, must have far deeper emotional and mental issues than this blog could ever fully address.

Birth Person is the next new term they will force on us. It will be the next required lie. Like the Airline Industry giving you the option to call your gender unknown. The sheepish Airlines would never have caved to such a silly thing if there were enough scientists and biologists with…well, enough gender to stand up to Woke-lore.

Nothing makes Woke bullies giddier than when one of their new terms becomes mandatory. They literally squeal with delight.

Did you hear the impassioned plea the ‘Wokist’ made for Birth Person? She appeared to be experiencing birth pangs while trying to make this a cause—a wrong to righted. She shared the pain she had suffered being called Mother!

But she is only a small part of the problem in America. The biggest problem comes from people who are too afraid to stand up to this insanity. And it is more than a harmless insanity. When they force us to use their words, it insults our courage, intelligence, and threatens our freedom.

They are as good as screaming at you, “HAPPY BIRTH PERSON DAY, YOU PASSIVE DOLT!” They count on the cowardice of corporations. They pander to the intellectually insecure, who will do and say anything to remain viable to the academic community.

They are relying on your fear of being labeled racist, transphobic, and, the grandmother of all slurs: xenophobic. Or should I have said the grand-birth-person of all slurs?

You may be fearful. You may be docile. Whatever. The fact is that every day the freedom to think—the freedom to disagree—the freedom to worship is being eroded by Woke bullies that few Americans are willing to stand up to. And shame on you for not standing up to them.

I take you now to my encounter with Woke pronoun terrorism. “I self-identify as a _____,” they said to me. “And that is what you will call me.” I told them I would not call them anything that is not true, because that would make me a liar.

When I asked them if I could be known as a 20-year-old man. They said, “Of course not, because you are not 20 years old.”  “Not even if I self-identified as one?” Their silence spoke volumes.

Do you not get it? We are breathing life into moral craziness and tyranny when we give credence to this garbage. Worse still, we are condemning our children to live under the domination of angry, crazy people.

I remember a day when Americans did not scare this easily. We used to be able to tell who the wolves among us were, who ‘self-identified’ as sheep.  Happy Mother’s Day.

A “Forever” Place

News Flash! Hope is in the air here! If you have started on this journey, be kind to yourself! Good morning, all! I’m thinking this morning (on my porch again…gorgeous weather) about what a Pigpen life is really all about. No matter what your physical living conditions happen to be, great or terrible, the bottom line is this…..a Pigpen is a sad, lonely place, a foreign country. You are at this place in your life, realizing that things are not turning out the way you hoped, because in some form or fashion for one reason or another, you deliberately left, were kicked out of, or simply wandered away from HOME. But, remember what we talked about last time in “With Love, Nana Ann” hope lives here.
It doesn’t make any difference if the home you left was your birth family, adopted family, “grafted into” family, or the family of God. The fact is that you and I, ( yes, I was a pigpen dweller) left. We receive our first taste of love in our home. Our first sense of belonging, of knowing that we ought to be taken care of, is in our home. Our first food and water are in our home. Our first discipline comes in our home. Our first knowing that parents are not perfect and make mistakes that hurt our feelings is in our home. Siblings… incredible and terrible….can be part of a home. No matter what our leaving experience was or how we feel at this time, home is supposed to be a “forever” place. Think about the appeal on TV for someone to give a forever home to a dog, cat, horse, or person. The world knows the truth about a “forever home,” and deep down, so do we!
Wouldn’t you like to make peace with your “forever home”? Healing, restoration, and forgiveness are waiting for us there.
Grace, Nana Ann
