Remember when I told you this…a new kind of Christian leader will soon appear on the American stage. They will not fit any present mold. They will be the catalysts. They will usher in the next great awakening. They will appear because conditions will demand their appearance.

Consider how the coronavirus can be the pretext to change the very way churches and ministries operate. Even to the point of banning public gatherings.

In the next few years, you will likely see social media virtually remove 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.

Let us put this weapon in your hand. A Powerful new book by Mario Murillo. It’s about the breed of soldier that God is creating to turn America back to God.

    Amen good word well said, we have such a mixed-up people, who don’t even believe in following the bible, obeying the Ten Commandments, and know nothing of the consequences of not obeying the word, when all we have to do is look around at what is going on in America, we have allowed abomination, and abortion, and other evil laws, and some say nothing will happen to America thats not what my words says. mu word says a nation that forsakes God will be turned into hell, he left rules to follow, commandments, to live by, and they even deny the word, acting like the word is nothing, AND THE WORD IS EVERYTHING IT IS JESUS CHRIST, we need some Holy Ghost fire-filled men and women of God who will stand and preach the truth of that word, and nothing but the truth, and some need to sit down, if they’re not going to preach truth, THE PREACHERS GOD CALLED PREACH TRUTH, FOR HE GAVE THEM HIS SPIRIT WITH FIRE, and some other’s do need to find out what they were called to do, because its not to preach the gospel, or they would preach truth, anointed men and women preach the truth of the word, I can put up obey the Ten Commandments and all hell breaks lose in the so-called church, some just need to sit down and let someone who will preach the truth preach the truth, and let the others find what they are called to do, because they are the blame for this nation being in the mess it is in, they don’t have the guts or back bone to preach the truth or stand for this nation, and most will not fight in the army of God, which is the other reason the church and the nation is in the shape it is in, its time we rebuked and set some down, when Jesus takes you to heaven and give you a word, and says the church is not ready, they think they are but there not, all these things are going on in my church, and there not ready, 2 Cor 12:20-21, now go back and tell them and preach with more fire than ever before, and the Churchleaders, will not accept it, they reject it will not even let me put it up, with their sermons, will not even warn the people, is so sad, they will have blood on their hands, for not warning them, people will go to hell for what we will not say, and that should not be, God entrusted us to preach the truth, if he called us, and some will not even warn their own people. We Need Some God Called Holy Ghost and Fire Preachers, Some Old School Men And Women Of The Word, WHO WILL PREACH THE TRUTH OF THE WORD, AND STAND ON IT AND NOT BACK DOWN WHO CALL EVIL, EVIL, AND SIN WRONG AS DOES THE WORD, AND REPENT OF THEIR PASSIVINESS, AND COMPLACENCY AND SURRENDER TO GOD AND DO AS HE SAYS, OR GET OUT OF THE WAY AND LET SOMEONE WHO WILL.

    Mario, this is so very true you shared here today…

    “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.”

    Because the institutional church culture pattern, was so large and limited by organized structural protocols, once these Mario spoke of got “herded” into it, they got stuck in it. On the same token due to the largesse of the congregants of this institutional pattern, these same one’s became financially dependent on the institutional pattern, and didn’t go out to use their degrees and callings to exit the “church culture pattern” and forge a way with their gift in new areas of world structures, to take them for the Kingdom of Christ.

    I’ll never forget what Pastor Green told me once in the beginning of my walk with the Lord some 35 years ago, regarding the ultimate job of the local church house. He said,
    “This church and all others are to be a spiritual hospital for sin sick people, and just like any other hospital, once you get well, you leave that hospital and go back to work!”
    These were Southern Baptist and their approach to ‘outreach’ and the great commission is unparalleled.

    Yes! And YES!
    The self- life has got to go. The crossing over is the Jordan, of true self-life being annihilated so Christ can reign.
    Not by might or power but by HIS SPIRIT! He is completing what He started.
    Jesus was prepared for thirty years for a ” ministry” of three years! Worth it!
    Yet the very ones studying these very prophecies missed it because His ways are definitely not our ways!
    I love God-surprises!!!!
    Let us be greatly strengthened in this hour – it is the Hour of destiny!

  11. Audrey Wright

    How powerful!!! Yes,Yes, Yes. Have your way Jesus!!!

  12. Darlene W

    Thank you Mario for speaking truth with the clarity and encouragement.

  13. Lightship Chaplain

    It is strange, last night at 2 AM in the morning I was feeling quite defeated in my calling towards the Lord’s work, and then this “New Kind of Christian Leader” appeared immediately next, in my inbox!
    I don’t know what’s going on here, but can’t wait to find out! Thanks

  14. Gloria Rivera

    Amen! Powerful word admonition unto us all. Praise the Lord. Continue obeying His calling in your life for the World along with His Church needs to hear this message.. May He continue Blessing you mightily and Praise God you are one who does Not cower down to the enemy nor those so-called of God who do Not finish out for they give up. Lord continue opening doors for you to enter and Bring Him Glory and His Presence manifest in tremendous power for such a time as this. <3

    Truth!! Too may pulpits have become cold, dark, Spirit-less, “professional,” oratory stages. Speeches are given by man from the Bible instead of fiery, anointed “messages” from The Throne. I pray for divine visitation to take place in the pastor’s study in churches all over our land. Jesus loves His church and He loves His shepherds, but He also issues warnings to them that the flocks be guarded and not scattered. I pray for a new generation of men such as Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Haggai, Micah, Samuel, and Elijah. And Paul, Barnabas, Silas, Peter, and James the Brother of Jesus. Holy Spirit, send a fresh fire, wind, and infilling from on high for this generation.

  16. Gordon Gainey

    We started a new ministry to raise up those kind of people. Its been a long and sometime lonely road for likeminded believers, but WELL worth it. Powerful, prophetic, insights brother.

  17. sharonrogles

    Thank you, Mario, for your conviction to speak the truth for our generation! PLEASE PRAY FOR ME AS THE LORD IS LEADING US TO DO THE GREAT NORTH CAROLINA PRAYER DRIVE AUGUST 1, 2020! We are raising flags of freedom, standing for our faith and liberties and taking action by hitting the road in vehicles. Truckers, bikers, cops, believers all across our state circling cities as we listen to powerful music, messages and pray prevailing prayers all in unity saying “yes and amen”! The Lord gave this vision to me 2 years ago before moving to NC but now it’s actually coming forth! People are getting excited and onboard! Please pray that more pastors in our area will also join the call according to the verse, “When you hear the sound of the trumpet, JOIN US, our God will fight for us” I would appreciate it if your team can keep our resources, finances, and the last harvest in your prayers! We just started on the website here, not finished but wanted to send it in the rough http://www.ncprayerdrive2020.com/

    God bless you and may the patriot pillars of fire blaze! Sharon Rogles
