The Nazis had a phrase which they used in order to cover all abuses by the state: “Für ihre sicherheit.” Meaning, what we do is “for your safety.” As I was walking recently through a home improvement store with my wife, I heard this recorded message blaring through their P.A system, “We are doing all we can to ensure your safety.”
Before I go any further, I want to give you a revelation about Christians in America. We are similar to the Jews who went into captivity in Babylon. Jeremiah the prophet instructed the Jews, “And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace” (Jeremiah 29:7). I believe God is giving Christians that same mandate in this hour, in regard to America.
Some will disagree with my comparing America to Babylon, because they believe America is a Christian nation. To a degree they are correct, but no nation can be fully Christian because Jesus told us, “My kingdom is not of this earth” (John 18:36).
The best that can be said is that any nation which is sympathetic to the teachings of Jesus and honors the church will be blessed with freedom. If America removes the welcome mat for Christianity, she will not survive.
Just as the Jews were a blessing to a nation that held them captive, we are to be a special blessing to America on the eve of her destruction. God has chosen the American church to play a heroic role in our nation’s most desperate hour.
To do so we must put away all self-righteous smugness. We must ignore the voices that are telling us this is not our fight. In nation after nation, Christians have had the opportunity to extend their faith beyond their church buildings: in soul winning, healing, and in justice. That last virtue is the call of this hour.
The pandemic offered the perfect storm for Democrat Governors to unleash their despotism. They sent preachers to jail who had not broken any laws. They terrified innocent barbers and hairdressers by seizing their licenses, their livelihoods, and then invading their homes. In one particular case, they interrogated the 6-year-old child of a hairdresser, without her permission. Storm troopers—for that is precisely what they are—crashed into churches, and homes, arresting people who honestly did not understand the vague, ambiguous, and ever-changing stay-at-home orders.
What is even more horrifying than these illegal acts of search and seizure, is the sheep-like reaction of so many Americans. Indeed, like trained seals, we have barked when they said, “Bark!” and rolled over on command because they offered us a shiny fish, called ‘safety.’ There is a vast difference between being safe, and being secure.
Where is the outrage over blue-state Governors like Gavin Newsom (CA), Gretchen Whitmer (MI), and Ralph Northam (VA)? They have become arrogant, cruel, and criminal. They claim their actions are based on science, and they are, but the problem is that it is political science.
They have scared millions into frittering away their rights. What began as fear of a sickness, has mutated into a paralyzing fear of the state. That is why they can ignore the Constitution, and kill people through despair and addiction. This is no mission to save lives, it is a bloodless coup to take over a nation.
Am I going too far by accusing them of killing people? They are killing people by keeping them imprisoned in their homes, euthanizing their small businesses, and driving them to addiction and suicide. Doctors, not preachers, are the ones who are protesting the spike in suicide, which can be directly tied to people who have been trapped in their homes.
Where is the outrage? Where are the voices of reason? But most of all, where is the church?
I repeat! We must put away our self-righteous smugness. We must ignore the voices that tell us this is not our fight. Not only is it our fight—I believe we ‘have come to the kingdom for such a time as this’ (Esther 4:14).
Only the church has the special power required for this dark night of our national soul. Only churches can demonstrate the light, the power of prayer, and the authority that will pull the bloody talons of Satan off of the throat of America.
There is a part of me that wishes Trump had waited before issuing his declaration that churches should open. Because it robbed pastors of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to show courage—to stand against all the illegal forces arrayed against the Bill of Rights, and to stage a massive protest. These Governors needed to see the church en masse sending them the clear message that we will obey God and not man!
Still, there is ample opportunity for preachers to do heroic exploits against these political gangsters. It begins with the revelation that Satan is using the narcotic of ‘false safety’ to endanger freedom.
Act we must. Preach we must. There must come upon us a universal sense of destiny that the church of the Lord Jesus Christ is in America at this hour for the express purpose of defeating this evil.
If you value soul winning—if you value open worship and citywide outreach—if you love this free nation of ours, then you must join with us as we march shoulder to shoulder to banish this curse, this attempted power grab, from our land.
What they are doing is not ‘for your safety,’ it is only for their control.

Vessels of Fire and Glory
Vessels of Fire and Glory is Mario’s newest book. It reached number one on Amazon among all Spirit-filled books. John Kilpatrick who led the Pensacola Revival said this after he read Vessels of Fire and Glory: “As I read the manuscript for Mario Murillo’s new book, Vessels of Fire and Glory, I said to myself, “Finally!” Mario has measured the church and the nation in this season and did not hold anything back. His honesty is like the sun rising inside a dark cave. This release is a paradox—it is sobering and refreshing; it is symptoms and the cure. I believe this revivalist has penned a treatise that should be in the hands of all who lead the work of God.”
Here is a book about the end times with a totally different approach. It does not focus on how the world will end but on how to live as the curtain comes down on humanity. Powerful, practical, and encouraging.
Critical Mass is the best-selling book Mario Murillo has ever written. It has been acclaimed as a classic on how to pray for, surrender to, and sustain revival. It is required reading in many colleges and training centers.

You are absolutely right.
When Gavin Goose-Stepper claims “It’s just for your so called safety”, He murders babies just for their safety. A Criminal who espouses satanic ideologies, as he sits in the scornful seat of arrogant indifference toward the church. Cast out this scorner and contention will go out, yes, strife and reproach shall cease, and the end will be peace.
Mario, we pray for you weekly and as the Lord leads more as well. I value you and your ministry and most always feel that you are speaking exactly what the Lord has put on my heart as well. This blog was doing the same except for when you mentioned that you wished that President Trump would not have moved on the Governors opening up churches when he did because the pastors should have had the opportunity to stand up. This is not something I like having to say but they wouldn’t have! They are still not! Even with him (the President) opening up the 501C3 to less oversight they still haven’t stood up as a whole and lead the way on local or national elections, abortion, gender definitions…! Many are gutless wonders serving a mammon god and trying to continue in the tradition of not rocking the boat! I really don’t like having to acknowledge this but it’s true. President Trump has done so much to clear the way for great movement and they shrink back into their own little fortresses. I believe there is a shaking coming as a result of their meagerness and lack of backbone spiritually. There is a distinction being made and those that have not built on the rock are not going to be standing after the shaking. This was opportunity for them to choose and choose they have. They have lead the way for the ability for these elected officials to not only be in office but to exercise the tyrannical overreaches in our society and during this pandemic. The Lord has put it on my heart that the spirit of mammon through the tool of bribery has twisted and perverted so many in the government and our private sector to preserve their precious areas under their control at the cost of their integrity before God and the current and eternal livelihoods of those that are looking and or needing support and guidance and truth. This then leads us to the question of why hasn’t society cried out loudly that the churches aren’t there for them because they are being denied the tremendous ministry that they have become so accustomed to. Probably because these pastor (many of them) have not been equipping the saints for the work and so the work hasn’t made the impact on the level needed to elicit this type of response! Sad to say! I only write this in order to communicate with you Mario and I don’t even know if you will even see this. My concern is for you and those that listen to you that we do not slow the boat down, even with good intention, for those to get in that really don’t want to get in or are even intent on turning it in the wrong direction. You are such a blessing and a fresh, straight forward truth telling minister of the Gospel and as much as you and I want to believe that a majority of these pastors really do want to stand up, if they don’t want to then all the desire that we might have for them to do so won’t make it happen. Keep up the amazing work! Please don’t stop as long as the Lord is calling you to challenge, point the way and remind us of the truth! We thank you for being obedient from the bottom of our hearts. Lori
Lori, Thank you so much for your thoughtful message. I am praying over it.
Someone thought I was throwing water on you and that really is not at all my intention and I believed that you would not take it that way or I would not have said anything. There was a comment on my response to your blog that thought that I was inferring that I was waiting on Pastors to move in order to do what God is calling me as an indiviual to do. I am definitely not. That was really my point I believe we have to have greater discernment on when and if we wait at times that’s all. I do want Pastors and all of the Body to fulfill their role. Very much! I think it’s just that the Lord is helping me to not put my hope or energy in the wrong direction and for the wrong reasons. It breaks my heart to think that there are those that really are going to decide that they aren’t willing to let go of carnal perspectives for various reasons to follow Jesus in the Body of Christ and especially those we stipulate as leaders. I believe that the entire Body of Christ is going through a time of filtering as individuals and we are either choosing to allow the Holy Spirit to take away what is not of Him or what will hinder us in moving forward. There seems to be such a incredible high level of call to refinement and only He knows the elements that are needing to be addressed in our hearts and minds that manifest in our choices. I have never experienced such a level of surgically precise refinement and correction in my walk with the Lord. The isolation started far before Covid 19 of pulling us aside and isolating the elements in our lives that we have included in our foundation that are not to be trusted in. The perspectives that are not His/eternal. Our flesh is always looking for the thing to trust in that doesn’t require God Faith and denying ourselves. Seems that He is really showing the Body the things that we are trusting in that are not Him and it’s time to let go. Anyhow, I am rattling on now… I just wanted to tell you I am so aware that you are under pressure and consonantly have people trying to tell you they way you should do things and that’s why I normally don’t say anything because I don’t want to add to that predicament. I simply shared what I believe the Holy Spirit was already dealing with me on and wanted to share it with you. I am so grateful for you and would love to hear what the Lord, if the Lord shows you concerning this. There is a sober assessment needed for ourselves first and then also in how we deal with others with the leading of the Spirit of God. Thanks Mario you are a blessing!!!!!!
No problem Lori, Thanks for the update.
Mario Murillo, I have made a video in response to this article. God bless the work of your hands. This is a mama’s perspective and one of an intercessor. I will do my part. The battle belongs to the Lord!
Lori, GOOD WORD!…. BUT GOD ~ He does NOT DELIVER by many, but by few. (Judges 7:1-8 / 1 Samuel 14:1-15, esp. vs. 6c) These people had a far LESSER COVENANT than we have, via the Resurrected FROM the DEAD JESUS the CHRIST WITH the KEYS to DOMINION & AUTHORITY in His Hands FOR us who Believe! Not many of us Truly Believe, but those FEW who DO BELIEVE & KNOW OUR GOD will display Strength & Take Action / shall “DO EXPLOITS”. (Daniel 11:32) Of all those thousands/millions of Hebrews, the Lord God had only 4 whom He exalted (James 4:8a).
God NEEDS only 1 (ONE) decided/dedicated heart to lead the few.
Are YOU one of Gods ONEs?!?
Look what God has done through Billy Graham! Billy Graham was a pebble in the lake, BUT he’s had a HUGE RIPPLE EFFECT throughout the world! Morris Murillo Ministries is another single pebble in the lake, whose having a tremendous effect on the world!! You might consider STOPPING looking at “all the pastors” & find out YOUR PART, YOUR RESPONSIBILITY in His Overall Plan for “such a time as this” (Esther). Find out what God Himself has Written in YOUR BOOK (Psalm 139) for today & stop pouring cold water on MMM by distracting Morris’s eyes off his own Spititual respossibility & onto “the masses” for which he is not responsible. He’s offering GOOD SEED (Matt 13). If others do not receive it, that’s not Morris’s responsibility & NO sweat off his back.
BLESSINGS to you, Sister! =D
Lori, this was brilliant! Brovo! You are absolutely right! The preachers would not have stood up and will not now. We should stand up too and not wear the damn mask. I don’t unless ordered to and then under protest. PlanetX76@gmail.com
When Gavin Nuisance says “It’s for your safety”, he really means it’s so he can safely pull the rug of liberty out from under your feet, cause he likes telling people what to do to make himself feel important. He is an empty shell. The words of his mouth are smoother than butter, but murder is in his heart toward churches. He has an antichrist hidden agenda.
Trump and team it tuffing up a bit, taking the Constitution Word for Word and Enforcing it, some Governors grossly over stepped there Authority.
It sounds like Trump is getting ready to rock and roll, the Federal Judges are getting on edge, they want the Constitutional Rights of “We The People” restored imedently, it’s time to raise the standards.
Every Law Enforcement Officer and Military official has has Taken the Oath to protect the Constitutional Right of the American people, it is now being enforced.
The first article in addition to and amendment of the Constitution does not distinguish between essential and non-essential rights therein.
“Any call to action should be for these governors to stop violating the Constitution, lest the federal government activates and arms the militia and enforces the provisions of the Constitution directly thereby per its specifically enumerated power to do so.”
So the picture is getting clearer, it’s looking like things are getting ready to turn into a Civil War of Good aginst Evil.
Pray for our law enforcement officers and military personal as they prepair to take the Bull by the Horns…
The military and police esp the police do anything a governor or even a mayor will tell them to do that’s how they get paid.they could care less about the bill of rights and the first or second adment.
Harold, You are exactly right and I wss an MP in the military and wish I had stayed in snd got a pension.
Thanks so very much.
If ever the Church needed or is in need of REVIVAL, it’s now. As you quoted “for such a time as this”. Religion is not the answer. As Einstein said “if you do the same thing as you have always done you cannot expect a different result”. It must be LIFE NOT RELIGION. Religion got the church to the place where it is, but LIFE can and will transform and as Ezekiel said when asked if these bones can live, “You Know”. Just a few things about Revival:
“Revival isn’t optional” “Revival is not yes or no” “Some say Revival is over, it is for a dead church” Revival is over for a complacent church” ”Revival is over for a church that doesn’t care about lost souls” “Revival is over for a church that doesn’t have outreach” “Revival is over for a church that does not have a prayer room “
“In times of evangelism, the evangelist seeks the sinner, in times of revival the sinners comes chasing after the Lord.”
“Revival takes us out of our comfort zone “
‘Evangelism is the expression of the Church; revival is an experience of the Church. Evangelism is the work we do for God; revival is the work God does for us.’
Thanks again for your words. Wilson

Since you have mentioned Gov. Newsom, this brings me to my concern. I am very worried about Trump Jr. and his relationship with Gov. Newsom’s ex-wife. The girl friend may be an ex-wife, but there had to be agreement at some level for a marriage to take place, and this Governor is Pelosi ‘s nephew.
by the time married people get divorced there is most usually NO doubt that there are irreconcilable differences, but that also the 2 who’d once become one can NO longer stand each other!… so much so that at the very least one of the 2 married partners has completely departed from that relationship in every way conceivable.
More often than not there is so much pain and anger from the entire ordeal it is common that the 2 never see each other nor communicate again even when they live in the same town. If there are children from the marriage until those children are grown adults, they are the ONLY connection that the divorced couple have and even that connection is defiled by the reality that these two human beings are just plain morbidly DONE with each other.
ONLY in television and movies do the ex-spouses have an on going relationship and trust me even if that were mostly true in real life, that is the rare and unusual and can be abnormally unhealthy.
You ask how I come to this conclusions, I am a prior divorcee as well as having become a divorce care counselor along with my husband of 27 years, who is one also.
Additionally, few to zero states in the US make divorce an easy judicature. NO fault states, as many are nowadays, still adjudicate marital divorces with endless platitudes and judicial insistences that create nightmarish lengthy challenges and outcomes.
Based upon this reality alone, there’s no reason to assume Kimberly Gilfoyle, Newsom’s ex, would have anything at all left for or with CA Gov. Newsom.
Hopefully, if they do have to deal with each other on occasion, they find a way to navigate past their many realized combative differences.
You talk about a sick scenario with conflict of interest. Reality is indeed stranger than fiction.
Yes megagenious, divorce is one of the sickest scenarios that there is.
This is why God had Malachi the prophet speak against it. My husband of 27 years is the one God sent to me after divorce, he and I dedicated our lives to Christ Yeshua and in helping combat the dark spirit that overwhelms people during and after divorce. Only through Christ can divorced people recover enough to begin a new life all over again. This is why Malachi 2: 14–16 says;
” Because The Lord has been a witness between you and the wife of your youth. You have acted treacherously against her, though she was your marriage partner and your wife by covenant…If he hates and divorces his wife, says The Lord God of Israel, he covers his garment with injustice…Therefore watch yourselves carefully and do not act treacherously.”
Thank God for His Grace through our Lord Christ.
We, the church, have had opportunity for months now, to show bravery in the face of tyranny.
Reblogged this on Covenant Chronicles with Chris Lovett.
Reblogged this on Neeter's Notes and Quotes and commented:
“…God has chosen the American church to play a heroic role in our nation’s most desperate hour.
To do so we must put away all self-righteous smugness. We must ignore the voices that are telling us this is not our fight. In nation after nation, Christians have had the opportunity to extend their faith beyond their church buildings: in soul winning, healing, and in justice. That last virtue is the call of this hour….”
To do Justice and Judgment is more acceptable to the Lord than Sacrifice. Prob. 21;3
Thank you Mario! There are many of us standing with you! We must have a collective sound that reaches the heavens! God is with us.
Amen Tami Lighfoot! I agree.
President Trump only blew the Trump-et “CHARGE!”
We the people must put our butts in the saddle, feet in the stirrups, spur to flesh and enter the battle…as one.
Yes amen. Tyranny.

I call out and wait upon the Lord. What must I do Father, in the midst of this national calamity. I see the evils in this nation, my mind is occupied with You. I recall the events of times past in Your Word. I will never stop praying and meditating on Your Word that my thoughts be clear of the distractions of the enemy. I am prepared to act and do that which glorifies You. I hear the voices of many that are giving direction and insight, that which they believe is of You. Father, draw me into Your plan and purpose for such a time as this. Give those people, who are submitted and committed to YOU, the details of what must be done NOW! Prepare the hearts of those willing to sacrifice everything for justice and truth. Amen Len Wisniewski
Lord I need your guidance and help me to know what it is you want me to do. I need you for you are my only hope. In Jesus name Amen! Thank your Marrio I love reading your blogs keeping me up on what’s happening.
It’s come time to count the cost, Christians. It breaks my heart to see our America coming to this, but is something worth having if it isn’t worth fighting for? I was just reading comments on a site I’d never been on, masquerading as a “patriotic” site, it was actually a left-wing rag. These leftists of today are completely skewered in their outlook. Up is down to them, truth is lies, good is evil. The end time delusion is creeping upon America and the world. In worship is where we find our strength. Dear Holy Spirit, we love you and need You.
You assume that pastor will stand up on mass. They haven’t and they won’t. The cowardice of the fivefold ministry is what got us in this position.
I believe that there will be those that will allow Jesus to correct their courses and I am so thankful for that but I do agree that there are far too many that have grown so comfortable in their 501C3’s that they are more afraid of breaking breaching those perimeters than they are of disobeying God by not leading the way as the Holy Spirit leads them according the the Word. I pray for boldness to come on these Pastor with the conviction of the Holy Spirit that they will be counted as those that do not shrink back!
Loriquandt, you have hit the nail on the head with everything you have said in your posts here.. i have nothing to add..
Reblogged this on free73735.
I don’t know if you will get this but I hope so. I am 87 years young. I watch you and Robbie and am so fired up , I just want to pray with that passion. I used to but things change and churches change and fewer people to share my passion. But I get so inspired by your messages, Thanks Jean White. Canada

Love what you share Mario! But I believe it’s time you get your own domain. You’re such an important voice.
Ordinary Men is the true story of Reserve Police Battalion 101 of the German Order Police, which was responsible for mass shootings as well as round-ups of Jewish people for deportation to Nazi death camps in Poland in 1942. Browning argues that most of the men of RPB 101 were not fanatical Nazis but, rather, ordinary middle-aged, working-class men who committed these atrocities out of a mixture of motives, including the group dynamics of conformity, deference to authority, role adaptation, and the altering of moral norms to justify their actions. Very quickly three groups emerged within the battalion: a core of eager killers, a plurality who carried out their duties reliably but without initiative, and a small minority who evaded participation in the acts of killing without diminishing the murderous efficiency of the battalion whatsoever.
Thank you Mario for this post. Yes we need to stand up firmly for God and our religious freedom. We also need to stand up for our civil rights!
Wow from a prayerful Mom whose son is a minister in California. Praying for wisdom for him but do not see eye-to-eye with either of my 2 sons. Have to leave it in God’s hands. The blessed Controller of all things.
Here are a few things related to what you said above. “We are the people who are the defense of the country. We are the bulwark of any nation. Salt preserves. It holds back corruption. What are we here for? To keep back corruption. Corruption in all it’s forms-moral, social, political. As long as we are here, we do this. Jesus said, “If the salt has lost its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot of men,” When the church ceases to fulfill its function as salt, it will be thrown out and trampled underfoot of men. These men may be communists or Nazis or followers of some other “ism” that has not yet come forth on the horizon. But it will be men who will trample underfoot the church that is not fulfilling its role in the world as salt.” -Derek Prince from his booklet Praying for the Government, How to Pray Effectively For the Nations and It’s Leaders.“
And here is something else related to what you are saying. The Cultural Mandate for engaged Christians:
…In Genesis 1: 26 we read, “God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion…over all the earth, and over every creeping thing.” In 1:28 the grant of dominion is reiterated with the added emphasis that man is to “replenish the earth, and subdue it.” In the light of the Christian world view, we see that man’s dominion is a delegated authority under God. Adam’s naming of every creature in Genesis 2:19 was his first authoritative act.
The commands in Genesis 1: 26 and 28 are commonly called the “cultural Mandate”—from God as revealed to Adam, yet unfallen, to utilize and direct the earth’s resources to the glory of God. This mandate has not been withdrawn from fallen man. But only regenerate individuals—that is, Christians who truly love the Lord—can understand and carry out its implications.
Christians are called to apply God’s revelation to all areas of life and to all disciplines. Unfortunately, what we have been witnessing in the last century is the non-Christian’s usurpation of the cultural mandate against the terms of the Bible. When exercised contrary to the principles of the Bible, the cultural mandate becomes a pretext to manipulate man and his environment. —from the book, The Second American Revolution, by John W. Whitehead.
Think what the secular humanist, socialists, progressive/communists, feminists, the media, Hollywood, academia, and democrats are doing to society. And Joe Christian wants to keep silent? That silence is in error. No wonder the young are leaving the church as it is non-relevant to them. God is saving this nation and we Christians had better get on board with that or we could lose it and our freedom, prosperity, and freedom to share the gospel all before the coming election November 3rd, 2020.
