This Will Turn

by | Mar 25, 2020 | Christianity Today | 21 comments

While leftists are saying, “Christianity is done in America,”  I say, “At the end of this lockdown, an amazing ingathering of young souls will begin.” To try to prove me wrong, the Left drags out the usual suspects—trends and statistics (including the coronavirus) — in an attempt to validate their argument.

My first response is, “Are you done? Because your arguments just fell like an egg from a tall chicken.” Not only is Christianity not finished in America, but you and all your “woke folk” have inadvertently sown the seeds for the next Christian resurgence. Your ideology has carved out a Jesus-shaped crater in the young souls of our nation.

The wreckage caused by the bankrupt values of the God-haters is everywhere. It was always there, but many didn’t have the time to see it.  The Left has drained the beauty out of childhood, romance, laughter, innocence, friendship, and nature. Those who are stuck at home, now have the time to sit and think about why in the world they ever believed such inane ideas, ideas that have led to such emptiness.

Three verses from the Bible have ignited in me. They have to do with outcomes in the midst of impossible crises, such as Luke 21:12-15 where Jesus said, “But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and rulers for My name’s sake. But this will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony. Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will answer; for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.”

The ‘occasion for testimony’ is upon America. We have never seen the nation shut down like this. We have never seen idols toppled in such a sudden and complete way.

While it is very good news for some in the church, it is terrible news for others. God is separating two groups in the church. He will not have carnal voices in this next testimony. He will give voice to chosen ones and grant them astounding defenses of the truth, and power to speak with devastating effectiveness.

He is chasing the hirelings out of His presence. Right now, all over the world believers are headed in vastly opposite directions. Their emotions are opposite. Their viewpoints are opposite. Their destinations are opposite. Some are headed toward a visitation of God. Others are being herded out of the way to make room for a new and glorious work of the Holy Spirit.

Flashy, fleshly preachers were repeatedly warned—but now it is too late. This virus was the deadline. How could they remain carnal and self-important in the face of this crisis? How could they still resist God even in this calamity?

Well known leaders, who at this hour bask in popularity, are totally oblivious to their impending demotion. God is about to sideline them.

On the other hand, totally unknown churches and leaders are about to rise. God will have a witness! It will be pure. It will be free of carnal agendas. It will demonstrate signs and wonders from a holy and loving innocence, and these witnesses will not take the glory.

Remember when I told you this. The coronavirus epidemic will give way to the most explosive opportunity for soul winning in our lifetime. But many believers are going to be left out—receiving in their souls the fruits of their rebellion and the rejection due them for years of resisting the dealings of the Holy Spirit.

Today church buildings lie dormant. Today we wrestle with uncertainty about how long it will last and how bad it will get. But the Holy Spirit bears witness that it will end as suddenly as it came. Many Christians and preachers will emerge with a false sense of security and have no clue as to why they have been demoted.

God has deadlines!  Luke 19:41-42, “Now when Jesus approached and saw the city, He wept over it, saying, “If you had only known on this day, even you, the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes.”

Preachers in America have crossed a deadline, and now God’s next move will be hidden from their eyes.

On the other hand, there are humble servants who are grieving over America. It looks impossible, but this will turn! It looks like the door is closing, but this will turn! It seems that our enemies are too powerful and too great to ever allow a true revival, but this will turn!

Believers who will soon be revealed to be secret weapons, are waiting on God at this very moment. Broken hearts are the birthplace of the impossible. Many don’t know what’s happening to them. They can’t explain the birth pangs.

You know who you are. You are not wasting time fretting with vain imaginations. You are following hard after God. You feel strange rumblings, as deep calls unto deep. What will these Vessels of Fire and Glory look like? They will be irresistible. They will be unstoppable. These vessels will set the stereotype of what a Christian is, on its ear, in America.

What will it be like when it starts to turn and God-starved people meet God-filled people?  Matthew 11:12 says, “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.”

This will turn out for you, as an occasion for testimony!

    Acts 6:10 The religious stiff necks who came against Stephen were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spoke. Why? He was full of the Holy Ghost and faith. Those emerging for this end time Harvest will stay full of the Holy Ghost and faith that works by love.

      And I have a great resurgence of Faith and Peace as well, ‘mega… This came up in me all by Itself. Didn’t have to work It up or pray It up… This is God’s Grace and Assistance for all believers during this time of a worldwide pestilence… Faith and Peace are risen up within, and how we thank the Lord for overseeing our journey through this.

    Mario, thanks for your newsletters. One small but mighty wording change I’d make with this opening sentence from a paragraph close to the end – “Today churches lie dormant.” Only the church buildings themselves lie dormant, the true church, the people don’t have to be.

    • Dan Bradburn

      Thank you for sharing Mario. Your voice — can often be a echo of my own heart. Godspeed.

    It is a pause for reset.

    Boy, you hit that on the nose, Pastor Mario. The Left ruins everything they touch, everything they get involved in. It’s become extremely rare to post a comment in support of Biblical values and traditional families, without drawing a flood of snide remarks from those who hate God but think they are better than us. Sometimes, I become so weary of seeing their vile remarks, I end up removing my comment, just to have peace again. How did the left become so vile? They no longer know what gentleness, kindness, meekness, decency, love (they call perversion, “love”, and they call love, “hate”), innocence, loveliness, ..and on and on. But soon, society and decent people who remember what it was like to have respect and to hold certain things dear, are going to find their way back to truth, back to the Bible, and back to God. They are going to get tired of the degradation that the Left has brought this country to, and they’re going to turn into a mighty army to take this country back from the lunatics who have ruined it.

    Thank you again, Mario, for your non-stop bringing the word to life in this season. As Paul said to Timothy “stir up the gift of God which is in you” and that your doing. You stir up the Holy Spirit within us to grab a hold and start using the gifts God has given us for this time to be bold and speak out without shame or fear.


    please view a video on you tube by Rodney Howard Brown “the end times” interesting concerning the Rockefeller foundation Thanks Ross

    Thanks Mario!

  12. Mark Stripling

    Amen! We are chomping at the bit to get back out in ministry to prisoners and the addicted. We fully expect to see the Holy Spirit make up for lost opportunities to minister the Gospel of Christ to the lost and broken. A greater harvest is ahead! God is till going to receive great glory in all this!

  13. Diana

    Pastor Mario, this is the truth and yet, I feel discouraged because that’s me—“receiving in their souls the fruits of their rebellion and the rejection due them for years of resisting the dealings of the Holy Spirit”.

    • mariomurilloministries

      Diana, the only ones in danger are those who feel no urgency and need for God’s mercy. Let the Holy Spirit turn your discouragement into peace! -Mario
