I begin with a story. A therapist takes chalk and draws a straight line across the blackboard. “What does that make you think of,” he asks the patient. “Sex,” replies the patient. Then the therapist draws a triangle and asks again. “Sex,” comes the answer again. Finally, the therapist draws a circle and once again the reply is, “Sex.”

Putting the chalk down the doctor says, “I don’t need to go any further. Obviously, you are obsessed with sex.” The patient indignantly retorts, “ME!? You’re the one drawing the dirty pictures!” 

“Woke” people only see dirty pictures. “Woke” folk believe they see all things clearly. “Woke” individuals do not see their own bias, overreaction, or falsehood. To them, society is only drawing dirty pictures. Even the act of opening their eyes to reality offends them.

Science, truth, and history are all evil to the “Woke, if it contradicts their fantasy. In Portland this past October, they even toppled statues of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt. Wait what?

Here is an example of what may happen if you ask a “Woke” person a fair question. Question: “How can you say there was no election fraud? There were several million more votes cast than there were registered voters?”  Woke answer, “That doesn’t matter, because you are a racist.”

They see America and American history as a cancer to be excised from the earth. While America’s history does contain some wrong acts, if a fair comparison of American history is made with the history of every other nation, America will look amazing. 

America is so great, in fact, that it is the only nation in the world where even those who hate America do not want to leave and go to live anywhere else.

Why do they want to destroy the most decent society in the world? Because in their rebellion against reason, they have come to believe their own lie. If you want to understand why there is so much hypocrisy on the Left, it is because they are fixated on what is wrong with everyone but themselves.

In a free society, “Woke” people are entitled to their opinion, but they are not entitled to their own facts. When the facts show that you are lying—that you are breaking the law in order to destroy people—that you are viciously excluding individuals in the name of inclusion—that you are smothering freedom in the name of equality—that you are abusing your political power to abolish the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, then you must be opposed, exposed, and prosecuted.

The latest ‘dirty picture’ is a thing they call Christian Nationalism. They are saying that loving God and loving America is a dirty picture. The goal is to break up the voter base that loves Jesus and America. They want to shame us into being silent and they want us to leave the frontlines of the culture war right when we are needed there the most.

The oxygen-deprived Evangelical leaders who have signed on to this myth of Christian Nationalism, should be ashamed—ashamed of violating their calling and of betraying their congregations.

Here is the big picture: They invented the threat of Christian Nationalism in order to stop Trump. They have tried everything else to do it. They do not want him to even be able to run for office. First, they impeached him. Then they used the silly optic of National Guardsmen forced to guard a non-threatened Washington D.C.

Now they have turned to their final option: Invent Christian Nationalism in order to hold Christians and Patriots up as the greatest threat to America.

If you love Jesus and you love America, then listen very closely: do not negotiate with crazy. Do not buckle under their delusions. We must all stand our ground and reinforce the truth that our Founding Fathers were indeed moved by the hand of providence to construct a constitutional republic that is the best arbiter of freedom and justice the world has ever known.

But, until the “Woke” stop focusing on the perceived problems of society and begin to work on their own character, they will push for radical and fundamental change in our institutions and beliefs.

Recently, Dennis Prager said, “Conservatives believe that America can be improved, but should not be transformed, let alone, fundamentally transformed.

“The founders of the United States recognized that the transformation every generation must work on, is the moral transformation of each citizen. Thus, character development was at the core of both childrearing, and of young people’s education from elementary school through college.

“As John Adams, the second President said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

“And in the words of Benjamin Franklin, “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom.”

“Why is that? Because freedom requires self-control. The freer the society, the more self-control is necessary. If the majority of people don’t control themselves, the State, meaning an ever more powerful government, will have to control them.

“From the founding of the United States until the 1960s, schools and parents concentrated on character education. But with the ascent of left-wing ideas, character education has all but disappeared from American schools. Instead: children are taught not to focus on their flaws, but on America’s flaws.

“Social issues have replaced character education.”

We must never surrender our Faith in Christ! We must never “let our good be evil spoken of.” Our awesome God is still at work. This “Woke” nightmare is one that America will soon wake up from.

    You have to admire the way Mario just will not be silent in the face of the obvious stupidity of Democratic Madness! Mario is a rare Believer in the church. Our nation needs a lot more Marios! Mario is a huge blessing!

    • Wordforworld

      Hey CJones! Isn’t it greatly encouraging to know we are a threat to the broke, er, woke crowd! WORD OF GOD said to rejoice when they gnash their teeth at us.
      WORD ALSO said:
      The Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil!
      So be it, we agree w/WORD OF THE LORD, in the NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, we say
      Yes, the throne of iniquity is cut off!
      Those that condemn innocent blood are cut off!
      The works of the devil are destroyed.
      Those that defile the temple of GOD are destroyed.
      The mouths of false teachers are stopped!
      The house of the wicked is destroyed.
      The foolish/fools see their destruction.
      The enemy is scattered.
      Their teeth are broken.
      So be it, LORD, as YOU have spoken!
      When the believers speak what our GOD said to speak, He works with & confirms His WORD with signs following. WHEN will we believers SAY what HE said??? (Stand firm and see the deliverance of the LORD GOD!)
      Hang in there, MARIO! We’re getting it! We’ll be strong in agreement with the Word of the LORD, finally!

      • Stephen Rainey

        It’s time for the true church to lift up our voice like a trumpet with a clear, unambiguous sound from heaven to preach the truth and to stand against evil and having done all to stand. Thank God for true men of God like Mario who are doing so but we need more. We can only be that voice crying in the wilderness against the evils of our day – cf John the Baptist speaking against Herod’s adulterous relationship and against the religious leaders – if we are tuned to heaven, hearing from God and aligned with and yielded to his purposes. The voice and cry of the Spirit will be so manifestly different to all the other voices (sounding brass and tinkling cymbals) that people will sit up and take notice either it will cause repentance or resistance ( think Stephen in Acts 7) but one sure thing it will illicit a response because the anointing and full force of heaven is behind it. Let’s get so full of God that we become people who have something to say rather than just saying something which has no impact.

      The true Body of Christ has not failed. We continue to believe the best for our nation and speak those things that be not as tho they were. We partner with the Holy Spirit to discern what is going on. And we speak into circumstances what the Spirit is saying. Love answers love. Jesus’ relationship with the Father is our example.

    While the Woke and others on the left are in their fantasy world, believers are still doing outreach. People like Mario are reaching the lost. We have the new series on the gospels “The Chosen” which is igniting a fire in those who watch it. K-Love radio stations are in every city.
    We are seeing G-D build a tidal wave of spiritual renewal that will sweep the left away.

    The US ignorant citizens have chosen a buffoon to represent them. World leaders are laughing at the childish tantrums performed on the political stage. AS the US declines, other nations are plotting to become top-dog. As the world turns, it is attempting to loosen the yoke placed upon her shoulders. The hour is upon Christians and others to defend their beliefs and freedom. (I Mario, i stand amazed at the clarity of your views. They always hit the target that Christians are being bombarded with)

  10. Frank Hubeny

    Good advice: “do not negotiate with crazy.”

  11. James Bezuidenhout

    Thank you for your daily emails and dedication to keep it going. Keep it up.
    This one caught my attention, specifically the picture of the broken up flag. I took it as a sign of change. Let me explain.
    In the 1st Jan 2019, God shared a vision with me when I asked him for a word for 2019. He gave me the vision below of a broken up flag hanging half mast. Now, some explanation: when you look at a compass on a map, west is on the left and east in the right. So in my vision, God showed me a east wind in the US and a time of trouble and mourning. I did not get a new vision in 2020 as we were still in that specific season. Now in many places in the bible an east wind brings famines (example Psalm 78:26). It was also an east wind that opened up the red sea for the Israelites (sure so you may say this is not famine then right – well think of it from the unrighteous or Egyptian point of view when they were all taken out).
    Now, when I saw the broken up flag in your email, indicating a west wind – I took that as a sign that the season is about to change. Because of Israels location, west winds blows from the sea and is a generous and refreshing wind that blows away the locust and brings relieve and showers (Ex 10:19).
    Even thought it was not my vision, I have been searching for signs of change and took the flag in your mail as that.
    In this season we saw a economic and health attack and now an attack on Christianity. However, its about to change: God is changing the guard of the church, in which you are on the front line. Keep up the good work brother. U d man
    I prefer to remain anonymous to your audience.

    Amen Brother Mario! So well spoken. The freer the society, the more self control needed – the objective of the Woke is removing that main attribute from the minds of people. It is that attribute we must cultivate. Love you Mario – you are a truly a vessel of honor during these tough times

    How long Oh Lord, will you delay? Deliver and protect us Oh Lord, as you did when you gave Harvest to the Israelites in Egypt while denying the same to the Egyptians. AMEN!
    Make their schemes both personal and national come to naught! AMEN!
    But, above all awaken your sleeping church!

    • Wordforworld

      Amen, Michael! The faithful wait well, knowing the LORD never stops working! “Seeming delay” is waiting on the believers to speak GOD’s WORD in agreement w/HIS; as He visits the evildoers in their attempt to sleep, and visions, with writings on their walls, sending laborers that speak piercing Truth: conviction to the hearts, convincing to minds, and conversion TO THE TRUTH of their need for the Saviour.

    They may be “woke”, but surprise! We are awake now, and there is nothing they have in their pathetic arsenal that can stand up to the truth and God’s power in the Church. We’re going to be their worst nightmare, or should I say daymare?

    So true and love what John Adams said which is Exactly how I feel! If they don’t approve of American then find a Country with their evil beliefs!

  22. Roger Culwell

    it’s like the first thing I do if something is wrong, I cry out to God, Lord is it me have I done wrong, knowing I am human and there is a devil who can deceive greatly,but knowing who I am led by and anchored in, I say Lord show me if I am in the wrong, being guided by a moral compass of his word and Holy Spirit, and if we are not in tune with his Holy Spirit we can easly be led wrong, and deception today is at its greatest level,at a time we should be seeking Gods face more, some are watching netflex, or playing video games, something just wasting time, the enemy is using to take control of everything, any time self is in control or man we will be led toward the things of satan, because satan controls us if we are not led by the spirit, and just because you claim to be an Evangelical, oh you may teach or speak, but it doesn’t mean you are speaking under the anointing and guidence of the Holy Spirit, you must know the savior and have a personal relationship with him, there are familiar spirits of fallen angels at work in the body today, that can even imitate the presence in you, and much of the Church fall prey to this by ignoring what the Holy Spirit tried to tell them was wrong, disobedience opens the door for another spirit to lead you instead of the Holy Spirit, like him telling thats not right don’t do it, or don’t drink that, if he ever said it was wrong, he didn’t change you did, and you can offend him and another spirit imitate him, so we have great deception today because the Church has wanted to stay in her sin, and the only right and moral way is Gods way which is the word, and with out it you have lawlessness, which is one of the reason we do not ignore the Ten Commandment, with out the Ten Commandments we go back to lawlessness which is where we are headed if these woke people continue, they are illusional, and brain washed following self, that why Jesus said.
    Mat 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. [ we must die to self, self or the flesh is led by satan, we are led by one of two spirits 1 Jhn 4:6 the Spirit of truth or the Spirit of Error, and many right now are led by the spirit of Error, because they will not deny self, and we can’t know the things of God with out the Holy Spirit, and we can’t do his work, or stand as we should with out the Fire, and we have a church today being run by man and not Gods Holy Spirit, which is why we have all the wayward preachers, who will not stand on the word of God, we can only be awake if the Holy Spirit is controlling us, other than that we are open to deception big time.]
    Prov 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
    So many expect America to still be blessed, when she allows abominations, Lev.18:22, she don’t know what sex she is and God sttled that in Gen 5:2, and we shed innocent blood, Prov. 6:17, and sow discord among the brethern, and Mal 3:8, Half the church don’t believe in paying tithes, 10% is Gods that never change in the bible from Abraham on down, read you are under a curse if you don’t pay them, and some worship idols and don’t know it or fallen angels or goddessess, and we must clean the Church up, because it’s the Churches fault the world is in this mess, she didn’t stand and speak out when she should have, I tried to get the preachers to stand with me a few years ago on fb about same sex marriage, I just ask them to post not even the scripture just Lev. 18:22, and not a one would post it, that was when they first started taking away our rights to preach the word, and now look what they are doing, some are speaking now, but is it to lait, I pray not, but we would not have this problem if the Holy Spirit was in charge of the Church and in control of our lives, WE BETTER AWAKE AND GIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT BACK CONTROL, FOR WE CAN ONLY HAVE UNITY IN AND THROUGH HIM, AND HOUSE DIVIDED WILL NOT STAND MARK 3:25. and our school system needs to be redone BG is a monster who has caused nothing but total destruction to our children and other, and should be charged with crimes against humanity for what he did to our children with CC, hate an evil for this country has been planted by pure evil seeds opf satan to destroy the nation and the church, our foundation has cracks now from teachers who taught lies to children, and from preachers who would not preach the truth of the word to the church and teach them to stand, we need to go back and fix the foundations, and build the Church of Jesus Christ the way the word say’s and then we will be world changers and soul saver’s and not word changers. God Bless you sir

      Hi Roger, glad you’re doing better! I’d like to add that I pray that my Mormon friends are spared from judgment because they really Do Not Know what the book of mormon says! If u ask them they’ll tell you emphatically they believe it, but just as emphatically will admit they’ve never read it! I’ve been used by God to lead a few to Him. Just a few.
      Likewise for my catholic friends, for so long the Bible was in Latin, told by leaders “they’d not understand it.” They trust the shepherds!

      It’s not too late, Roger. God is hurting over this mess even more than we are, and He is moving in mercy, and Holy Spirit power; equipping us to do our job. He will have his way, and bless you for your grieving heart, just don’t get despondent; praise Him! We will win.

    Mario, I love your Bulldog approach. You are a true leader and Truth Teller. Your blogs and Podium Sermons remind me of the old day when TRUTH was respected and honored especially behind the pulpit. The only thing missing is the slapping of the pulpit and the pointing of the index finger to the body of Christ.
    Keep declaring the Gospel facts!
    In my opinion so many hate the gospel because They are Guilty and do not want any one to point it out. RUN is what they do and pretend to know what is best and hide behind their agendas which is to destroy all Truth! Their facts are sketchy and when that is the case they have no answers. They are SCARED Mario because they know that they and their agendas are brought to the forefront. I know we are all here on purpose to witness a turnaround from Dark to Light. We are witnessing exciting times so stay strong for the Glory of Christ! The holy spirit is whispering in all our spirits to Pay Attention. It is amazing how easy it is to spot a lie today. It is all around us. We have been conditioned to believe what is spoken from our leaders but GOD will reveal the truth in every situation if you pay attention.
    Your blogs give me encouragement and Guidance. Thank you Mario and team. God Bless You.

    Now, they are working on preventing young school children from calling their parents, Mom and Dad, and using gender-specific terms. They are going to have the next generation so confused and mixed up, they will drive them to more suicides than ever.
    Liberals cannot really be this stupid, to think that all this madness can possibly end well for any country. They can’t be so stupid to truly believe this country is that horrible, when millions are trying to come here from all over the world. This is an agenda. It’s out of the pit of Hell, and the Enemy is not particular in who he uses, and he’s using an entire administration and political party, from the top down.
    They know if they can destroy the kids, they can collapse America and we’ll be forced into the NWO-One World Government system.
    Also, with the mess that our education system now is and the dangerous Teacher’s Union that is leading the democrats around by the nose, and most of the teachers being foolish enough to be willing to teach the garbage they are forcing into the schools, we have to pray that the “education” system in America is collapsed completely and taken over by the private sector. No more tenure. Compete. Teach the kids properly, not your politics, or be fired.
    If parents can possibly home school their kids, please, please, do so. And be open to home schooling other peoples’ kids also who can’t do it themselves. Find out what it takes, educate yourself on homeschooling, and do it.
    Save your children and grandchildren from this madness.
