Someone has wrapped a noose around the neck of free speech and every other right we hold dear. Certain opinions are being choked to death in America. I get why tech giants are fine with wielding oppressive control over people’s opinions—I have never seen them as anything but greedy and power hungry. They are not, as some naïve ‘woke’ folk claim, “trying to save democracy.”

And yet, strangely, I feel a calm sense of hope amid all of this.

What I do not get is why many of the elements of the media, key intellectuals, and some mainstream institutions that have been wise and objective in the past are now strangely quiet during the censorship, silencing, and even the cancel-culture obliteration of many American lives. Such widespread acceptance of tyranny by them is totally new to America.

And still, I feel a great hope, even in this situation.

What is also new is the attitude of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, along with the Democrat Party. They have made it abundantly clear that they are not going to reach out to the millions who voted for Trump. They are moving on without us. No one has ever had that attitude after “winning” an election.

Does that sound like something is being forced on us? It should. 2020 has been a year full of things forced on the American people. Since they forced their election upon us, why would they feel any need to work with us?

What is happening to America is evil. Preplanned and premeditated evil. We are watching something that was hatched decades ago and is finally upon us. So why do I feel hope in a seemingly hopeless situation? Precisely because it is evil.

Genesis 50:20 says, “But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.”  Those words were spoken by Joseph to his brothers who had sold him into slavery. That vicious act was exploited by God to promote Joseph into a position of royalty in Egypt, in order to save a nation from famine.

It is time for you to settle your spirit behind a historical fact. God has always dealt with evil in America, even when we did not deserve it. It is not by accident that ‘wokesters’ have tried to bury our history. It is there that we find the irrevocable evidence of God’s intervention in America. It is not simply the people of America that God loves, it is the idea of America. In order for that idea to be destroyed, you would first have to get past our omniscient and loving God.

Many believers are throwing in the towel too early. We could very easily see a miracle in a few days. That miracle would cause unprecedented nationwide convulsions. Or it could take longer. But one way or another, surely and eventually, the evil will be exposed and it will be punished.

God may do it by changing the tide of public opinion. Another way is by exposing the evil acts and those who have committed the evil. One thing has already begun:  because Fake News outlets such as CNN have openly called for the shutting down of any news outlets that do not spout Democrat Party propaganda, such as One America News Network and Newsmax, Christian conservatives have been forced to build their own mass media—something they should have done long ago.


Another way may be the sudden groundswell of hunger for righteousness, which I see sparking mass conversions. The tide of revival is only just now beginning to crash upon our shores.

What the minions of Satan mean for evil, God will exploit for good, in order to save many.  You can either let the images of blasphemy and arrogance drain your spirit or you can take your stand, lift up your head and anticipate the inevitable intervention of the Holy Lord of the Armies of Heaven!

    The Democrats are so stupid that they think the wages of sin is NOT death. They are so stupid they think they can fool all the people all the time. They are so stupid for thinking they will not reap what they have sown. However, PAY DAY ALWAYS COMES SOME DAY. IT COMES SUDDENLY WITHOUT WARNING! THE DEMOCRATS ARE IN FOR A VERY RUDE AWAKENING!

    • Jerry


    • Sam

      So true, C. Jones. Reminds me of the expression: “Sin makes us stupid.”

    • Karyn

      Great post. I need your positivity; I’m utterly depressed.

      Thanks Sam!?

    What the devil means for evil God will turn for good. I have seen that in my own life so I know what God can do for this nation. Instead of fretting about what the democrats are doing start getting excited about what God is about to do. God’s word says he watches over it to perform it. God’s word says God cannot lie. So, we know God will prevail. The more we join in anticipation for what God will do the sooner it will come. God bless our country and redeem us from the evil.

    • Mary Shiekds

      Looking forward to God’s intervention! It’s going to be a parting of the Red Sea moment and everyone will know that it could only be God that did it! He gets all the Glory! It will be in His timing! He’s looking for those who have faith and BELIEVE! It’s a test of who we really are……a sheep or a goat, wheat or tare!

    What does “ woke “ mean?

    • Wayne

      Marion, good question! Like everything else, Satan has commandeered this word like many others. A “woke” person used to be one who had “seen the light” and had the ability to discern light from darkness. A truly woke person knows they are being lied to and seeks truth. Nowadays, the world’s definition of a “woke” person is someone who is an anarchist, socialist, communist, ultra leftist… fill in the blank. Far from being “woke”, these people are totally in the dark… the blind leading the blind to their own destruction. The Bible says God has given them over to strong delusion and a reprobate mind as they refuse to acknowledge Him. Take heart… by asking this question, you are one of the truly “woke”!

      • Jeanne

        Thank you for such a timely message. I still have hope and keep my eyes on Jesus, the Name above all names. God bless and keep you as you continue to minister in His name.

    • Annette Cestone

      By the late 2010s, woke had been adopted as a more generic slang term associated with left-wing politics, progressive or socially liberal causes such as anti-racism, LGBT rights, feminism and environmentalism. It has also been the subject of memes, ironic usage and criticism for its methods and consequences.[2][3] Its widespread use since 2014 is a result of the Black Lives Matter movement.[1] — Wikipedia

    • C. Jones

      “Woke” means a slumbering spirit in denial of reality. The Zombie Zone.

      • Annette

        To me it is like they are in a trance.

  6. Annamarie

    I read Psalm 89:1,2 God is forever merciful and faith to us.

    When I see a new email from you, I get a shot of joy and hope. Thank you for who you are and to God be the glory. Millions of Americans surely rejoice that some people still continue to speak the truth…truth in the form of the reminder of Genesis 50:20…

    While most of the church is still asleep, BUT beginning to waken (the first yawn) the remnant have been wide awake watching GOD WORK THE NIGHT SHIFT.We are living in exciting times and truth wins. Praying many will waken up and not miss the supernatural move of God in the market place, the family and the Body of Christ. The prophetic mantle is keeping Faith alive. God is God! Watch as He rolls up His sleeves!

    Hi Mario
    I think the media is compromised and they are afraid of their activities being exposed, therefore the evil forces are controlling all information.
    We are praying for you all and know God will expose the swamp.

    Amen Mario,
    God will deal with this evil we have never seen before in our nation
    and these evildoers will have to bow to God at some time.
    Hopefully, sooner than later God will fix our nation.

      Totally agree. Newsmax has exposed themselves for who they really are.

    God is not mocked for whatever you sow…you reap. They have sown evil and corruption, to name just a few. This will come back on them. God’s Word does not return void! He watches over His Word to perform it.

  22. Reed Higby

    Amen, Brother Mario! Thank you for speaking out in Faith and Boldness! God is ALWAYS GOOD! Thank you for sticking with the SIMPLE BASICS:
    Truth ALWAYS exposes lies – and wins!
    Light ALWAYS exposes darkness – and dispels it!
    Righteousness ALWAYS exposes – and wins over evil!
    LIFE always TRIUMPHS over death – and moves on throughout Eternity!
    Much love in Jesus, Brother!

    I am a Canadian. God has called me months ago to intercede for the people, leaders and president of America? I know my heritage is from your constitutional religion. I have more american history in me than most Americans today. In my opinion and correct me if I’m wrong, God doesn’t worry about borders, and when you speak of America, I believe Canadians are included. I mostly just wanted you to know other Christians, in other countries, are standing with you.

  24. kingskid48

    I posted these links yesterday but they disappeared, along with my comment. Mike’s link was not working yesterday. He was probably getting a lot of traffic:
    Be sure to watch the prophecy video, all of it. This is all very encouraging. We need to be praying for OAN and Newsmax. Especially OAN. The fake news is trying to squelch them. The media are running scared, imo. They know if the democrats are exposed and brought down, they’ll go down with them. They have sold their honor and integrity to have power, fame, and fortune.
    I read that Fox fired Chris Stirewalt (sp) and five others after election night and their huge drop in ratings. Everybody knows who was really behind their awful election night coverage, but I guess they had to have scapegoats. Now Stirewalt is out there saying that those who believe there was fraud and that Trump won are ignorant and deceived.
    When someone starts a big lie, they have to continue to embellish and defend it, no matter how foolish they look. It would be so much better for them if they would just admit to the truth of what they did and accept the consequences. People would respect them more.
    Pray for Mike Lindell. He was already getting death threats before he exposed the fraud yesterday. Pray for his family and employees also and their families.
    Thank you, Pastor Mario, for standing strong and keeping all of us encouraged.

  25. Marilyn Phelps

    Before the election, I was led to distance myself from most media. Your ministry is
    the one I follow. Thank you for bringing
    forth God’s Word. Thank you for following
    God’s Word. I believe and have faith that
    God will do what He said He will do. Again, I thank you for all that you have done and will do in King Jesus The Messiah Name. So be it.

  26. Laura Huston

    Thank you for your faithfulness to keep us updated!!! I am holding the line and pushing back the darkness…I have been praying for the evil alters of Baal to be burned completely down… with GOD’S ALL CONSUMING FIRE…never to be built again!!! Out of the ashes God’s people will arise into NEW RESURRECTION LIFE!!! Many will drop to their knees in repentance…every knee will now and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord over all!!! Thank you Jesus…YOU…ARE OUR VICTORY!!! HALLELUJAH!!!

  27. kingskid48

    Hm. Every time I post those links, I get a message that my comment is under moderation. What could possibly be wrong with a link to Mike Lindell and a prophecy by Kim Clement?

    • Wordforworld

      Yeah, Kingskid48, had that happen to me twice yesterday, had to rewrite comment, then other was deleted.
      Don’t think it’s MMM.

  28. Doug Spurling

    Amen. Well said. Well done.
    Now, it is time to speak in the present. The exposing has already been done. God is I AM. Not I will be. We are told to pray with thanksgiving. We say “thanks” once we receive.
    God has already exposed the dry ground, parted the red sea, is watching to see who will step out in faith and believe.
    Dear Church arise now and be on with doing great exploits; stay on offense. Never again be on the cowering, hiding, backpeddeling, defense.
    Do not think or wait or say, “Someday it will happen. One day God will do something” It’s already done.
    Receive it. Now.

  29. Great Outpouring

    In order to break up the dependency of the system, it was necessary for the Lord to allow so much to happen. We need to be dependent on the God of the Bible and connect with one another for strength. We can feel the pains, but it is necessary. I totally see what you see in this post Evangelist Murillow.

    Thanks Mario. I also believe God will save America. He certainly does not work on our time but He’s always on time. We just need to stand and see the salvation of our God.

    A lot of information is coming out. From sources that used to be very pro democrat party. Here is one article from Tablet Magazine (Jewish outlet) on how the billionaires have taken control of the democrats and now use their influence to control the culture.
    We have known that there was some form of group in the background of the Biden campaign. Just not who. Then it became very clear that Obama had put together a group to wargame every possibility (which is why we are headed off no matter what we do). Now Time magazine has an article on it

    Thank you Mario! All you have said is true. God is going to expose and bring righteous judgement on these evil lies and acts of tryany. We will see it. And we will see many get saved and the tide will change back in favor of truth and righteous. The Church needs to continue to pray and be fearless in opposing evil and injustice.

    The War against God has been going on since before man was in the Garden.
    Third of the Angels thought they were equal to God. They got kicked out of Heaven. Then it got interesting.
    Man’s disobedience to God started w/Adam. Man got kicked out of Eden.
    New world order started as “recently” as Nimrod’s time. They got scattered. Perversion is as old as S & Gomorrah’s time. They got nuked.
    Man governing by his own godless ways was in the time of Noah. They drowned.
    Pharaoh & company wanted to rule humans. Judgements came via the snakes, boils, frogs, lice, flies, death of animals, locusts, hail fire, darkness, bloody water, & deaths of Egypt’s firstborns. Unrepentant. They were overthrown in the Red Sea.
    Choose you this day whom you will serve. As for me and my house we will serve the LORD.

    Thank you for this encouraging post. It’s the most encouragement I’ve heard in months. I’m a Canadian, but my heart grieves over your American election, and how the swamp creatures are trampling all over President Trump (he’s still the President!) & his supporters, and over the rights of the people. My heart grieves because if the lights go out in ”the city on the hill” (America), what hope is there for the rest of the world?
    Please pray for Canada. My country has gone further down the slippery slope than America in some ways, but it was all done more quietly.
    Yours in Christ, Susan Bailey

    I love that last part…..The Lord of the Heavenly Army of God. I am still contending too for God’s intervention for the evil steal to be destroyed. It has already started. Praying for all us saints to stand strong and ask God for Holy Spirit help when there are those lost that are put before us to minister to.
    There are soooooo many lost. God bless the MMM team as you keep moving and marching forward!
