They will soon appear

Remember I told you this…a new kind of Christian leader will soon appear. They will not fit any present mold. They will be the catalysts. They will usher in the next great awakening.

In the next few years, you will see social media virtually ban all preaching. Not only that, but there will be a concerted effort to marginalize the church in ways you never imagined. Does that mean that Bible-based Christianity is over in America? Absolutely not! You watch: God will come out of nowhere to meet this threat.

A few of them will be in pulpits. More of them will be in politics, business, science, law, entertainment, music, or a thousand other fields of endeavor.  They will not introduce subjects—they will introduce eras.  

 No one will be able to buy them off or get them to change the subject. They will operate on a disquieting plane of holiness and consecration. I believe A. W. Tozer was describing them when he said, “They serve God and mankind from motives too high to be understood by the rank and file of religious retainers who today shuttle in and out of the sanctuary.”

Today they suffer. Their agony is what happens when worlds collide. They see their destiny. It’s big and dangerous. A part of them glories in the potential to know God intimately and represent Him bravely. They see themselves rebuking kings, tyrants, and warmongers. They see themselves commanding the transfer of the wealth of the wicked into the control of the righteous. (Is. 60:5)

 God is warring to save America. You must find your assignment in that war. But how can we know our assignment?

The secret to finding your assignment is your heart. God speaks to the heart and then the heart must control the mind. Today, many spirit-filled believers are unwittingly involved in New Age practices. They relate to God as if He were some kind of ‘force’ rather than a Person.

They think that audacity and confidence will unlock gifts, authority, and direction. They speak of “activating gifts” as if there was a formula to supernatural manifestations. My friend, it comes through brokenness, not arrogance. The ‘force’ is a farce.

The gifts and anointing of the Holy Spirit always come through relationship. Sorry, but Christianity has always been, and always will be, family owned and operated. So then how can we know our assignment?

Your assignment in the Army of God is your individual expression and extension of Christ’s destruction of the works of the devil. You are a destroyer of the works of the devil. God will give you a way to do it that is unique to you.

Until that gets through to you—until you admit and agree to those terms—God will remain silent about your assignment.

Because the situation today in America is an impossible one, only one kind of person will make a difference now. They must be armed with divine certainty. They must own an unshakable, bone-deep conviction that they have been chosen for this task.

Without this, we have zero hope of removing the bloody talons of Satan from the throat of our nation. Without it, we are doomed to another embarrassing misfire, pawned off as revival.

Next, you must face the fact that very few believers are supposed to be teachers, preachers, or pastors (see James 3:1). For too long, we have listened to the voice of God through a filter. In the past, whenever God has moved someone to serve Him, we have assumed it meant ‘ministry.’

This assumption of ministry has sent many Christians to Bible College who didn’t belong there. Worse yet, it has filled pulpits with people who should have never been ordained. This reminds me of why President Woodrow Wilson once said, “One of the proofs of the divinity of the Gospel is the preaching it has survived.”

This filtered view of service is one big reason the church lost influence in our nation. God tried to send people into education, law, medicine, business, art, media, and yes, even politics−but instead, we herded them into “Christian service.”

You see it in the Bible. You see it in the stories of heroes of faith throughout history who altered the course of their generation. At the dawn of their mission, God infused them with incontestable certainty.

This certainty plays a critical role in their survival. Think of it like the escape velocity of a rocket. Escape velocity is one of the biggest challenges of space travel. In order for a rocket to break free of the Earth’s gravitational force it must reach a speed of seven miles per second. That’s 25,000 miles per hour!

Evil convulses at the approach of a new vessel of God. Hell instantly puts chosen ones on a hit list. The child of God must be blasted by divine certainty into a trajectory that will escape the pull of devils, the seduction of fame, withering criticism, and the dark night of the soul that comes to all who are called of God.

From his death bed, John Wesley wrote his last letter to William Wilberforce to encourage him as he fought in Parliament to abolish slavery in England. In this letter, Wesley confirms the urgency of divine certainty: “Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be worn out by the opposition of men and devils. But if God be for you, who can be against you?  Are all of them together stronger than God? O be not weary of well doing! Go on, in the name of God and in the power of his might…”

Understand this child of God! The same Spirit that is awakening a passion and direction in you is doing the same thing to millions more. Soon an army will emerge that will invade every area of our culture.

Today it is sporadic fire, here and there, but soon the prophetic core of God will obey and embrace their assignment. They will come together in a chorus of victory that will be unlike anything we have ever seen.

Never forget, Christianity will survive without America−but America will not survive without Christianity.

    I agree

    • Carolina

      Double agreement here, Oh Heavenly Father let them appear!?

    • Martha

      This article really spoke to my heart! Thank you, Mario!!

    • Cindy Selph

      Praise God what an encouraging word in due season!!! I must say it was music to my ears. What a privilege to serve in his army today. Onward Christian Soldiers!!!

  2. William Baldwin

    I believe your most inspired and timely writing/blog was “A New Kind of Leader” (May 26, 2019). Until now. This one, an obvious follow-up, continues in the same unction and brilliance. It’s not only your heart but the Lord’s heart; the revealing of His prophetic plan. Every fiber within me shouts, “YES!”

    Thanks for your daring obedience.

  3. megagenius

    Sounds like the Joshua Caleb Company who has another spirit that Wholly follows the Lord. Intelligent. Penetrating. Powerful. Pure. God always has His Remnant!

    My prayer is that the Body will no longer be in denial of why we are on this planet. We are here to do what Jesus did and more than He did, because The Father wants His children to do so. This “purpose” is so foreign to those I teach, they look at me as if I am speaking another language. This purpose of life on earth is not for just: Pastors, Teachers, Ministers, Missionaries, etc. An army is being raised up that DARE to believe what The Word says about their God and them! The opposition is furious and we feel the breath of it. We must stand no matter what.

    • Arthur Winfrey

      LOVE this commentary it is heartfelt and it makes sense. Truth is always simplistic. Let us continue to pray for our nation and our so called leaders who’ve lost their way.

    • Nancy Sires

      YES, YES, YES!

    Thank you for your insight!

  9. Eddie

    I am a combat veteran, a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, invited by Him to take part in His Kingdom Mission: “When you transform a veteran…you transform a nation.” I can only do what I seen my Father doing as the convergence of my vocation is the veteran transformation business. Veterans and their families carry a specific DNA strand the enemy recognizes and has sought to destroy them at every turn. It has been an epic and fierce battle to this point entering a new season of “BREAKTHROUGH BREAKTHROUGH BREAKTHROUGH” as the acceleration continues. There is power in UNITY…there is power in PROXIMITY…there is power in NUMBERS. Are you ready?

  10. Darlene W

    Thank you for such a liberating word!

  11. Bonnie Olson

    Thank you Mario for being so direct with your message. I am quite older now but still, I am in good health. I truly hope in my Lord that it is not too late for me to find His heart, moving my heart and, for me “to know” my next assignment. I feel that I have a long way to go and much to learn and experience but, I am running out of time. Before I leave this world, I really want to “know exactly”, what the Lord requires of me and that I obey Him and make my contribution to our nation on behalf of our Lord Jesus Christ. Even though I am of an older generation my heart is, to “move with the cloud” and what God is doing now, today, through men like you. This I do know, I can certainly intercede and pray for all you precious ones who are on the front line in battle. Thank you for your dedication to tell us the truth and to help shake us out of our darkness of complacency ! Oh Father, please forgive me, speak to my heart and change my life and manifest yourself in me and for all the thousands of other caring believers in our land. Amen

    • Michelle

      Bonnie, You are so precious!

    • Lynne Hodder

      Bonnie there has been a word about our generation, 60 plus, but its my first time on here and I’m not sure if you can share other words (all I will say is if your 60 plus you will see it). I totally agree with what Mario has shared and bring it on Lord. So very encouraging. Thank you

  12. Lynne Schrom

    Thank you, Mario! Growing up in the church, we sang Onward Christian Soldiers , but I never thought we’d have to do it! In all my life I haven’t specifically thought that I had an assignment but now I see that perhaps God is asking and preparing me to act on for what He has planned for me. I hope I don’t fail.

    • Sharon Griffin

      I too am a senior living in a city I cannot navigate and having TV ministry as my Sunday attendance, but I feel I have been drawn here to help in some way. I await direction from God ! S.Griffin

      • Michelle

        Sharon, your comment brought tears to my eyes! I believe God is using you in a Mighty way! Our “seasoned generation ” is rising up to the call “for such a time as this!” Its “all hands on deck!” Praise God!

      • Ray Ballestero

        Sharon, speak to edify others make someone feel good about themselves,, as this is automatic for you the Lord will increase your Words with scripture and authority,, as you bless others your heart will understand more and greater things you will understand,, The Holy Spirit will speak to you as you worship and praise… growth will come as long as we are breathing we can be used for His Kingdom.

  13. Greg Dean

    I was taught that there is only one gift, that of Holy Spirit the new birth. But that there were nine manifestations of it (three worship, three revelational, three of power). I attempt to operate all nine.

    There are “gift ministries” to the body. I am a prophet, one who calls G-D’s people back to him. Along with that is the Ministry of teaching as one has to teach in order to correct wrong teaching.

    Many are being prepared for this spiritual revolution. G-D led, not of man.

  14. Jayne Farrell

    Amen. I can’t wait! So exciting! I’m hearing amazing stories already!

  15. Donna

    Mario, the Truth in your message is in my bone marrow! I’ve been on the earth over 70 years and being prepared and looking to see this Day. Still being prepared and fine tuned. So much of the Body is anemic. We need a Blood transfusion! This Army will move with great precision. Each one in their assignment. He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored. He saves His best Wine for Last!

  16. Joy

    What an encouragement! Thank you for revealing and igniting us in purpose!!!

  17. Ivan Samuel

    AMEN 8X! This resonates with the cry of my heart so loudly! King Jesus, reveal your true sons and daughters! Be glorified in us and through us! Hallelujah to the Lamb!

  18. Christine

    Nobody talks like you!!! What a Gift to the Body of Believers.

  19. Grace Feng Hsu

    Yes! In 2008, after my mother went with the Lord, I visited my father in LA! Believe DAD waked me up and I heard this word “Great Force” Around 5 am Of 4/1/08! I knew DAD was talking! So I got up and took my notebook out! Believe the Holy Spirit just down loaded me! I still have what I wrote!!! Basically DAD said there will be Great Force and a new Sound!!! HE said now it is My Time! HE will send Great Force to the place HE is sending and the New Sound too!!!…Believe the Great Force is the New Leaders you talked about here!!! Believe many Great Force has been operating the assignments what God asked for!!! HE gave them Favors, strategies and Supernatural powers and anointing!!! Praise the Lord!!! 8/13/19 @ 12:22 am

    MARIO, You are such a Blessing to me…If Americans look “to the natural”—we fight the feelings of defeat and all is lost. The battles of those “standing in the gap” for America, and our President, at times are almost overwhelming.

    But as I realize how GOD saw down through the annals of time, what was to come in every generation—HE knew there would be men and women and boys and girls who would somehow just KNOW that “If GOD be for us who can be against us.”

    Many of us have had godly grandparents and parents who in their own unique way told us “things” way back then that have and are continuing to Prepare us for these perilous times. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

    DEFEAT IS NOT AN OPTION FOR US….The Battles going on for the soul of America continue to intensify with each passing day. WE HAVE NO CHOICE FROM HERE ON OUT…We MUST STAY IN GOD’S HOLY WORD WITH A PASSION LIKE WE HAVE NEVER KNOWN BEFORE.

    As children, we sat in church and sang: ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS, MARCHING AS TO WAR, WITH THE CROSS OF JESUS GOING ON BEFORE.” We then had little or no real understanding of what we were singing. BUT NOW I HEAR THAT SONG PLAYING OVER AND OVER AGAIN IN MY MIND AND HEART AND I UNDERSTAND!

    Ever Pressing In and Pressing On,

    Marsha Carol Watson Gandy

    What a thrilling blog. I am praying that my grandchildren will be counted among those who will be used of Almighty God in this manner. God bless, Pastor Mario.

  22. Bobbie

    Your article reminded me of ” The Joseph Company”-1992 by David Wilkerson: (he does PDF and a Sermon).

    Mario, I’m NOT saying you said or doing this.
    For those who feel like God is NOT going to utilize them because elderly: God IS NOT GOING TO EXCLUDE THE ELDERLY. Addressed for many years to the Church at large that going after the Youth was Cult mentality. Youth weren’t going to save us, only Jesus Christ. It was a hot discussion brought up by Seniors/People in general at a Conference in Pasadena-20 years ago. People are the Church NOT the Buildings and I learned MORE from Intercessors that I have any Pastor how SAD is that? We are ALL God’s children NO MATTER what age:
    2 Chronicles 16:9
    For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is perfect toward Him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.”

    Then there is the Beatitudes, Sermon on the Mount. Older training the younger Bible Verses: Titus 2:2-12. Google: Fathers in the Bible: Click on Bible Study Tools which covers Mothers also.
    Based on Matthew 20:16-So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. Matthew 5:45 comes to mind, The Ten Commandments. The Golden Rule which is scriptural-Matthew 7:12-Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you; do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the Prophets (is anyone heeding the Prophetic part and NOT stoning/rejecting/killing them, even by Leaders?). Romans 2:11-16 (11) For there is no respect of persons with God… HALLELUJAH! Think of the Thief on the Cross-Luke 23:43 and Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
    Philippians 4:8, 2 Kings 6:15-17, Job 13:15, Isaiah 60:all (Arise and Shine….)!

    Note: How can Pastors/Priest/Speakers/Leaders/People teach God’s Love, Grace, Mercy when they don’t know it for themselves and or The Completed Redemptive Work of the Cross of Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God! The revelation of that. Psalms 27:7-9 THE GLORY AND THE FIRE OF GOD IS COMING!

    P.S. All my Apostolic and Prophetic friends are all on the same page which basically some type of catastrophic event to unfortunately get the USA’s attention (can’t disagree, which is VERY grievous and VERY sad). You can’t prepare for the Finger of God except to Fast, Pray, Repent, remind him of his WORD and for his great mercy in all of his judgments; sack cloth/ash time (although evil men can create false satanic lying signs and wonders and playing their false god with people’s lives). Pray without ceasing, don’t quit! Was playing music “Save Us Oh God” by Kevin Prosch for days (Even, So Come Album); “Help Us Oh God” comes to mind.

  23. Ann

    So encouraging for I am older now and have been wondering what happened to beautiful but kind of sad prophesies said over my life for years had gone. All the denial: all the rejection: all the fearful situations that tried my soul and my life seem answered in what you have said. When I awaken now I will say “Thank you Lord” for I know the sacrifice of my life has not been in vain and You will use that for Your Glory.

  24. Greg Dean

    The left has taken control of, and polluted, our culture. Via academia, journalism and Hollywood. We need to encourage our young people to become professors, journalists and Hollywood producers.

    About 30 years ago, I came to truly UNDERSTAND about COVENANTS. It was then that I began writing Covenants to the LORD. I have all of these years poured my heart out on paper before the LORD. Each time—when I had finished, I would take each Covenant that I had signed and dated and place each one in a sealed envelope and place it in a drawer with the date on the outside of the envelope. Recently, I have opened two or three (thinking back on what was going on at that time in my life) and GOD has moved mountains on several things that I made Covenant with HIM about.

    I share this now, because everyone here may not yet have made Covenants with the LORD, but may have a desire to begin. GOD BLESS and KEEP YOU ALL.

    Most sincerely,

    Marsha Carol Watson Gandy
