WHY I AM CANCELING THE CRUSADE IN BATAVIA NEW YORK

I told you yesterday that we would make dramatic changes. I said that one of the changes would require us to cancel events. That is why I am announcing that I am canceling our crusade in Batavia, New York.
This is very surprising, because Batavia is the crusade that drew thousands during rainstorms. It was a remarkable event where hundreds came to the altar and God healed many.
But upon our returning to this region, we are facing pastors and leaders who oppose me because I support Trump. I do not talk about him a lot. I preach the Gospel and healing. But it is not wrong to mention him in the pulpit.
I was asked to speak in a local Bible College. After I agreed to speak to the students, the college president called me and cancelled my appearance.

We are facing pastors and leaders who oppose me because I support Trump.

Then at a pastor’s meeting the leader said, “We all know that Mario goes too far mentioning politics.” The shocking part is the guy who said this was leading that meeting in order to drum up support for the crusade. (With friends like this…).
Then one of them told me not to mention Trump in Batavia. The funny part is that Trump is mentioned all the time by Christian leaders who are against him. It seems you can talk all you want about Trump as long as it is to say something bad about him.
We see this in many cities, and we ignore it because it does not hinder the momentum of the tent crusade. This time we feel the hindrance. This time it has affected the crusade.
Ironically, many of the most outspoken critics claim to be going after revival. They say they are praying for revival. They saw four nights of fire, glory, miracles, and record salvations—in the rain. The answer was right before their eyes, but they rejected it. Because I mentioned Trump.

The answer was right before their eyes, but they rejected it. Because I mentioned Trump.

But the greatest shock came after we held a brunch for pastors and leaders, on Saturday, April 9th. This was the fieriest gathering of leaders we’ve ever had. I went away convinced that they had declared war on the devil’s agenda. But it never translated into workers and volunteers. The lion’s roar turned into a whimper.
The meetings are only weeks away, and we are still sadly lacking in counsellors, ushers, and workers. Never have I seen a group of people with more promise—who should have given wide and zealous support—fall so strangely quiet.

This is a controversial letter and it will probably cause a stir. But just maybe, it will ignite the firestorm that is long overdue for this region.

Maybe I am reading this situation wrong. Maybe the army is out there. Perhaps they agree with me about wokeness in the church. What if there is a massive number of on-fire believers in Western New York? If so, they have a strange way of showing it.
But the most compelling reason for this cancellation is the voracious demand we are receiving daily for us to come to city after city. How can we justify trying to persuade a reluctant army, when so many places are begging us to come—places that are unified and unanimous in their support for our cause?

    This really hurts my heart. That they would do this to anyone.

    This is heart-wrenching. If there are so many people there needing to hear the gospel, shouldn’t the push-back be ignored to share God’s Truth? Shouldn’t we preach the gospel “in season” as well as “out of season” according to 2 Timothy 4:2? We are living in the last of the last days, should we really be letting peoples approval or disapproval of our political preferences hinder the gospel from being preached? God will supply the workers needed, and if He doesn’t maybe all that is needed is simply pronouncing the Truth of the Gospel, and allowing the Holy Spirit to do the rest. The church is divided over politics, plain and simple, and I am so sure God’s heart is not pleased.
