THE AMERICAN CHURCH IS TOTALLY MISREADING THE MOOD OF AMERICA.

by | Jun 7, 2021 | Christianity Today, Church Leadership | 32 comments

Millions of Americans are sick of Biden, Fauci, Teacher’s Unions, and Planned Parenthood. They think woke is a sick joke. They are ready for radical conversion.

Meanwhile, the church—from the mega-sized to the tiny—continue to misread the mood of Americans. They insist on assuming Americans hate God and will reject the Gospel . The Church is believing the lie that we cannot confront and conquer the leftist agenda.

The narrative of defeat is everywhere. Even in sermons that are intended to be victorious, there is the smell of defeat.

When messages from churches refuse to confront the evil of our culture—they are ignoring the harvest. When the verbal content is only for believers—they are ignoring the harvest. Not matter how high sounding and motivational the message—if it ignores the harvest, it is grounded in defeat.

Mr. Fauci tells you the vaccination will save you, but you must keep wearing the mask. We see him as a buffoon for that kind of double talk. But how is the preacher who masks the Gospel any different?

Wake up church! Woke Corporations are clueless. Swooning professional sports and billionaire athletes are comatose. The standups on late night television, Colbert, Kimmel, Fallon, Corden, Maher and Meyers do not know America. The MSNBC, and CNN echo chambers do not know America. Al Jazeera does not know America. Neither Bloomberg nor Soros know America. And who knows what Biden does not know…

Wake up church! America—the real America wants Jesus. They yearn for forgiveness and peace of mind. They do not hate our history. I am talking about your neighbor—from the kid down at the park, who is all alone, to the tax paying, law abiding citizens. Millions of them.

California is supposed to be the worst place in the world for the Gospel. So then, why did the conversions in Fresno, Bakersfield, Modesto, and then William Jessup University create a crisis of shortages? We thought 600 fervent volunteers in Modesto would be enough, right? Now we know they were not! The harvest was bigger than we thought. Way bigger.

I do not harbor a fantasy that, somehow, I was so eloquent and powerful that it broke the spell over these California cities. All the glory goes to God. The people were hungry, they still are. Hungry with a hunger that did not need bells and whistles or any kind of diluted message.

And the hunger in California should be a warning to us all. If it is like this here—then what is it like where you live? What if vast numbers of Americans want God, but we are so conditioned to believe they do not, that we are sleeping through the harvest? Proverbs 10:5, “He who gathers in summer is a wise son; he who sleeps in harvest is a son who causes shame.”

The hunger in California is a rebuke—a stern rebuke to those who refuse to reopen and gather the harvest. The Supreme Court struck down both the ban on indoor worship and the limitation of size for indoor worship. We must thank God, Pastor Che Ahn, Harvest Rock Church, and all the brave pastors who stood against tyranny for these victories.

But they are hollow victories if churches do not reopen. And, forgive me, but some inner-city churches who have been sympathetic, shall we say, to the Democrat Party, have been paralyzed by fear. Even after the threat of the virus has passed, congregants in these urban centers are angry with pastors who want to reopen, and sadly, those pastors are afraid of their people. What is wrong with us?!

The public spoke loud and clear in every one of our tent crusades. They are not afraid to stand shoulder to shoulder to hear the Gospel. They are not the automatons you think they are. They are not blindly following the Gavin Newsom script.

Not even during the Jesus Movement did I see this kind of violent hunger for God. It reminds me more of the stampede of the crowds that rushed to hear John the Baptist in the wilderness. When they asked Jesus about the astounding draw of people to John, He said, “From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force” (Matthew 11:12).

And if the Kingdom of Heaven is at this moment suffering violence, what will happen to the lukewarm church and the timid preacher? 

I do not know what it will take to warn you. I can only speak for my team and myself. We are all in. We have declared total war. We do not see any option but to harvest, harvest, and keep harvesting.

Because they know what so many in the Body of Christ are refusing to see: AMERICANS WANT CHRIST IN RECORD NUMBERS!

P.S. We need workers! We need people to come from the far reaches of America to help us bring in what will surely be an enormous number of lost souls. Please pray about joining me in Sacramento. Below, you will see a link you can use to join the army. Use the link below to sign up.

    The cutting edge is not in the church, it is in the Harvest. God always fills the hungry with good things, but the rich he sends empty away. The Harvest is the end of the age.

  2. junglequeen

    Amen Mario – bless you for sharing the wisdom of these words. The lukewarm church and the timid preacher will fall within the Lord’s rebuke to the church at Laodicea in Revelation 3:16: ““I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spit you out of My mouth. Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked…”

  3. Karen Staffieri

    Amen!! Pray that I do my part.
    Thank you, Karen

    With Christ all the way. I refuse to go to any church that is not willing to stand for the whole bible. I can’t wait to see what church in my area is willing to be so bold. Until then, I will not walk into any church for the sake of church. I stand with you Mario and your team. God bless you. Too bad I live so far away but at least our prayers and worship join us together as one.

    Mario, I am a chaplain at a local jail in Florida who stands with you and your team. The work you are doing is so needed at this time and the results speak for themselves. My prayers are with you. One request from me . Please stop referring to our Lord and Savior as Christ,it is not His last name. I know it might be convenient to use CHRIST when referring to Jesus but we both know that there is no power in that. The devil is not moved nor does he fear or respond to the name of Christ. Jesus the anointed one of God when spoken by a believer is the most powerful Word in the universe. It is only in that name will he bow. I love you sir.Make sure that you and your team are taking a Sabbath ❤️

      Romans 10:4 NASB
      [4] For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
      You better tell the apostle Paul what you are telling Mario.

    • C. Jones

      Robert Miller you are confused. Christ means the anointed Messiah. In Acts 16: 16-18 Paul cast out a demon of divination from a woman who brought her master much gain by soothsaying. He said to the demon in this woman, “I COMMAND you in the NAME OF JESUS CHRIST to come out of her, and the demon OBEYED Paul, and came out the same hour! Please reread the New Testament and follow Paul’s example. Also, read what Peter said in Acts 3:6, “In the NAME OF JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth rise up and walk!”

    While in prayer a few weeks ago I ask the Lord why the church was in decline. The answer chilled my blood because it was harsh. The Lord told me the reason for the decline was “My people need me but do not want me”! While thinking on this response the Spirit explained that church has become a social club and gossip center completely devoid of the operations of the Holy Ghost. The Spirit also said Gods people need to repent of pharisitical ways and get back to the basics of the church. The hardcore gospel preaching and the miracles that happens after the anointing fell.

    • Laura

      Sadly I agree but until He tells me otherwise I’ll not stop praying bc we all need it.

      • Michael Payne

        One always needs to pray. That is our first line of offense and defense…and our greatest weapon

    • kingskid48

      Michael, I do believe that you heard from the Lord.

      • Michael Payne

        Thank you for saying that. But this has been on my heart some time now

    • C. Jones

      Many Believers want the blessings instead of the Blesser. Paul told Timothy , “ For everyone else is busy seeking what is best for themselves, instead of the things that are most important to our Lord Jesus Christ.” Philippians 2:21

    Praying for Living Proof Sacramento from North Carolina. Preach the gospel, heal the sick, cast out devils until Jesus comes! Hallelujah!!

    • Claudia MacPhee

      AMEN!

  9. Claudia MacPhee

    In the end, OUR COLORS MUST BE CLEAR! The red of Jesus’ spilled blood and the red, white and blue of the land God made Covenant with to share the Gospel – the Good News – to the ends of the world – JESUS SAVES, GOD LOVES YOU and you don’t have to continue down the path of sure destruction!! Jesus is the bridge and the Shepherd that leads His sheep across the abyss!!

  10. Claudia MacPhee

    AMEN!!

  11. NickT

    Great word Mario!
    We must wake up Pastors and parishioners to speak up for Lord about how he can save and set free! We must also confront the evil of our culture and speak up for justice in our nation of the wrongs that have been committed by the left and all their cronies. Don’t be afraid to go to the one place that can help you…The true church…or as Bonhoeffer states the “Confessing church”.

  12. Joyce Bidwell

    Mario speaks the truth better than anyone. He’s a fearless warrior for the Lord.
    God bless you Mario.

  13. Marrion Hamm

    Thank you for your encouraging words. We stand with you! We are in Canada and we know you folks are praying for us as we are also praying for you! God is good – there is nothing that He can’t do!

  14. kingskid48

    It seems like there are not many Bonhoeffers in our pulpits these days. Our pastor used to be one, but he has, “evolved”.
    Pastor Mario, what you said is the truth. The only thing that will save America is a massive harvest of souls, drawn by the Holy Spirit, filled to the brim with Him, and saved to the bone.
    I have come to realize in recent weeks, what I already knew, but did not expect it to touch our family. The destruction of the family unit is at staggering levels in America, and it is most likely the same worldwide. We are losing the tradtional, structured, family unit as God set up in His Word. We will have a coming generation of young people who have no idea what it is like to have both a mother and father, to have traditional, Biblical values, to know the Creator and the Savior, to respect authority, and to respect Life and stand for Life in the womb. If this downward progression of the family unit continues the way it is going, America cannot survive as a nation.
    One prophetic voice, who I do like and respect, said recently that he believes the Lord’s Return is at least three decades off. I do not believe that can be correct. With the progression of technology, AI, gene manipulation, cloning, transhumanism, robotics, epigenetics, transgender issues increasing, etc, etc..there is no way even mankind can survive that long without God’s interference. And that viewpoint does not line up with Scripture.
    Some of the prophetic people are seeing into the Millennium, but are adverse to acknowledging that because, I’m surmising, they do not want to believe there will be a Rapture, Bozrah, a Gog/Magog War, Armageddon, Tribulation, and Millennium. While events may not transpire in exactly the way we think-and we don’t all agree with the details anyway-they are clear in Scripture and they have to happen.
    With all due respect…the idea that the Church..especially, the Church of today..is going to bring about this wonderful Utopia on earth and hand it over to the Lord upon His physical Return..is ludicrous.

    • Wordforworld

      Kingskid48, sorry your family also has suffered. You called a pastor “evolved”.
      Pardon my light-hearted recap of someone reporting this week that the Arch of Darwin had suffered loss to the top part of the structure. (Knowing that his theory was “evolution should be included in intelligent discourse”), someone suggested perhaps the Arch evolved… Suddenly!
      God is showing Himself strong! Take heart!

    | | | Love this take in hunger for GOD and an ashamed of our pastors, especially the rich ones! But don’t they know that riches are sinful? Jesus was poorly and humble and did not refuse anyone and almost won leaders and some did repent of taking money that they should not have and tried to repay! May GOD have mercy on America and the world and take all these rich, evil and dumb, dumb and dumber people out! How did these people get rich? Oh yes by defrauding the poor and middle class and rich and excuse me but drinking the blood of babies in total fear has not made any look younger but more evil and every thing they have come against Trump for will return to them! GOD hears and answers prayers, maybe not as soon as I would like but hold on HE will! Praying for HIS KINGDOM to come!

    Eternity was placed in the heart of every person. We all long for God whether we know it yet or not. The media,spurred on by the devil has tried to stamp that out but it didn’t work and they have run out of steam. Nothing can stop the river of God’s glory from spilling out of its banks.
