WHAT SOME MINISTERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s AND BEYOND

THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s AND BEYOND, by BERT M. FARIAS is a warning from God to protect you in the coming days. Bert says what the Lord told him to say, and he does not care about the consequences. The 2020s will be the greatest test American believers have ever faced.

Never forget that God-given warnings are sent out of love — not out of anger, or hate. This book is a Godsend to help you not only face the 2020s but to thrive for God in them.

It is my sincere prayer that God will turn this much needed warning into a much heeded warning.

Evangelist Mario Murillo, Mario Murillo Ministries

 

The ministry of Bert Farias is marked by the burning heart of a prophet and the anointed passion of a revivalist. I believe he is a voice that God has raised up in this hour with an important message for the church. In Bert’s newest work — The Tumultuous 2020s and Beyond — the clarion call that characterizes his ministry comes through with a cutting edge that is sharp and clear. In this timely book, Bert Farias pulls no punches as he tackles relevant and controversial issues that will define the Church in our generation and determine what we pass on to the next. I highly recommend Bert Farias, his ministry, and this book.

The Tumultuous 2020’s and Beyond is a clarion call to the body of Christ to return to its first love, but with a warning: It will challenge you to examine what you believe and why; it may even make you angry at times. Bert effectively lays out the sad state of politics, morals, agendas, and problems of our day, and then, while clearly laying out the consequences of continuing along the current path, he presents the solution. This book is prophetic, quoting several prophecies and inspired words on what is to come in the natural world, while at the same time showing the glory of the body of Christ rising up to fulfill her destiny. A must-read!

The Tumultuous 2020s And Beyond 

THE IDOL OF PROFESSIONAL MINISTRY MUST BOW

This is a journal entry from April 2002 when my life and ministry was transformed during an extended time of prayer and fasting. It is a word from God that is fitting for many in this hour when the “idol” of professional ministry shall bow to Jesus and His life (The Journal Of A Journey To His Holiness). 

Think back to your former days when in your innocence and simplicity you possessed a certain awareness of the reality of My presence. Surprisingly, as your knowledge of My Word increased, you forfeited a portion of that awareness. “Ministry” spoiled the innocence and simplicity of our fellowship. Your mind became somewhat corrupted by “ministry.” Religion entered back into your life in a different form and worked a measure of death birthed by the works of man.

If you will be honest with yourself and remember those former days, you will have to admit that you had an awareness of My presence not only in your solitude with Me, but on the job as well. You had a sensitivity to the sinner and were always aware of Me when in their presence. But then after being trained for ministry, and being always around believers, performance and activity became the king of all your service. A measure of My love was diminished and a measure of My awareness was lost. Religion again worked its course in you to separate you from Myself.

Put away all residue of religion and move on into the glorious life and liberty of the Son. Move on into the communion of the Holy Spirit in all phases of your life.

Walk in the light of God and experience the life and liberty of the Son. 

I would have you know that My Son was the most un-religious person that ever walked the face of the earth. He was the last Adam. What the first Adam possessed before the fall, the last Adam possessed without ever falling. In the first Adam, before the fall, there was no religion. There were no temples made with human hands. There were no religious groups and denominations. There was not to be in the original purpose of the Godhead a division among men concerning religious persuasion or doctrine. These things are now all a product of sin and of the curse that came upon the earth.

There was no division between the spiritual and the natural. My kingdom was a part of all of Adam’s life. There was no division between his ministry to Me and his personal life. It was all one.

As I have already spoken to you, one of the greatest idols in these last days that will bow its knee to My presence is the idol of “ministry”. “Ministry” has a subtle way of spoiling the simplicity of a walk with Me. The idol of ministry is birthed by the spirit of religion. It is man using My Word to do their own will in ministry. That is the reason for so much of the division that exists in My body today.

In My Holy Spirit of Truth there is no division. If all men would learn to humble themselves and bow their wills to My life and My mind, the Spirit of Truth would teach them. My true life and liberty has been sacrificed on the altar of the stubborn will of man. The Spirit of Truth has been quenched by the muddy waters of religion that works through the will of man.

I would have you know, son, that it was the filthy hands of religion that crucified the innocent clean hands of My life on that cross. It is still the filthy hands of religion today that crucify My life on the altar of the human will of man. It was the filthy hands of the religious spirit that opposed and then crucified the glorious life and liberty of the Son. Lucifer so opposes this life and liberty that is found in My Son because it defies religion and the selfish will of man.

Study Isaiah chapter 14. See how Lucifer fell. Hear what he said. Was it not his will that opposed Me and My reign? Lucifer’s will desired exaltation. A desire for an honored reputation led to his fall. He has great hatred for all mankind, but especially toward those who only desire to do the will of the Father, and not their own.

That is why the Son uttered phrases like, “I came not to do My will, but the will of Him who sent Me.” “…My judgment is just because I seek not My own will, but the will of the Father which has sent Me.” “And My delight is to do Your will, oh God.” Statements like this were like a slap to Lucifer’s face.

In the depths of that delight to do the Father’s will lies the secret of deliverance from the spirit of religion. It is all found in the will. The key is to surrender your will on the altar of His life.

In the hearing and obeying of My counsel lies the secret to possessing that life. That life is a life of liberty that is free of religion. Religion is based on activity and performance outside of hearing and obeying. Liberty comes when you hear and obey what I say. Doing your own will engenders bondage.

The only kind of religion that is pure is the kind written in James 1:27 which is to take care of widows and orphans and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

This is a living word which produces a living faith.

UNMUTE AMERICAN PULPITS

New research shows that while 90% of pastors believe the Bible has much to say about about today’s pressing political, societal, and moral issues, fewer than 10% are talking about these issues (Barna survey).

Why?

One word: controversy.

Controversial issues affects attendance, participation in church programs, and people’s tithes and offerings.

But pastor, what about the condition of the souls you’ve been entrusted to shepherd? Is that not the most important issue?

Consider these startling facts:

  • In one large “Bible-believing” church 60% of the couples did not know that living together out of wedlock was wrong.
  • An increasing number of professing Christians also no longer believe homosexuality is sinful.
  • Young people believe that socialism is good for our country and that Jesus Himself was a socialist, and they love Democratic candidates like Bernie Sanders. Why is this unbiblical and shows a lack of discernment?
  • Most young people believe that Jesus preached love and acceptance, so we must love and accept everyone. It sounds true, but why is it a subtle lie?
  • Many professing Christians believe that “Everything is okay and relative. People can believe what’s right for them.” Again, why is that wrong thinking?
  • More and more of our young people believe we should appreciate everyone’s religion, culture, or god, and that we should all learn to get along. Again, why is this such another very deceptive lie?

And the list goes on and on. These are rather popular belief systems in the Church today. What are you going to do about it, pastor?

You better get in your study and prayer closet and receive grace and wisdom from God to preach for the times we are living in. You better let God break your heart over the sinful state of our society and the brokenness of many of our young people who are having a hard time making sense of it all. There’s never been a generation in America with more addiction, depression, and dysfunction than this one. If you are not biblically educating your people in these areas, sadly, the world will fill the void.

By abdicating your responsibility to teach and train your people in these major areas that are large cultural issues, in favor of church members’ attendance, participation, and giving, or whatever it is you deem more important — you as a minister and pastor, are saying that the Bible is really not important enough or authoritative enough in shaping people’s lives. These modern day political, societal, and moral issues are too critical to continue to avoid them and be selective as to what portions of Scripture you or I teach and preach on.

More pure authentic Biblical truth has been highjacked from Christianity in the last two decades that perhaps any other time in history.

Preaching the whole counsel of God and the issues that Satan is pressing on our culture, especially our young people, has never been more urgent.

Read the following scripture very carefully, noting the underlined portion of it.

“Herald and preach the Word! Keep your sense of urgency [stand by, be at hand and ready], whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable. [Whether it is convenient or inconvenient, whether it is welcome or unwelcome, you as preacher of the Word are to show people in what way their lives are wrong.] And convince them, rebuking and correcting, warning and urging and encouraging them, being unflagging and inexhaustible in patience and teaching” (2 Tim. 4:2 — AMPC).

Did you know that 2/3’s of Scripture is corrective? The Bible is filled with reproofs, rebukes, warnings, and corrections. Yet most pastors and believers think those portions of Scripture are too negative or even legalistic. Notice that we are to preach with a sense of urgency — whether it is convenient or INCONVENIENT welcome or UNWELCOME.

We’ve got to preach this way again, showing people in what ways their lives are wrong — even when it is unfavorable, inconvenient, or unwelcome.

I remember in my younger years we use to go to church to feel the conviction of God; to go to the altar and repent and make it right. We loved preaching on themes like heaven and hell and sin and holiness. Now many Christians think it’s all too negative. There has been a diabolical silence on such themes in the Church today. Satan has muted our pulpits. Even anointed piercing preaching on the cross and the blood of Christ is being neglected.

Let me show you what Satan is doing.

Satan has introduced a false compassion into the church and used it to camouflage compromise. He has done this by accusing us of hate speech. So in order to compensate, Christians are compromising the truth and convincing themselves that they are being compassionate.

True compassion is being moved by the sin, lies, and belief systems that are destroying people’s lives and keeping them in bondage. So called compassion is actually cruel when it’s not mixed with Biblical truth. The lack of absolute truth is eroding the moral base of our culture.

Unless the Bible becomes our complete and absolute standard of truth the tide of evil will continue to rise in the Church and in our society.

Never has there been a more urgent need for true spiritual physicians, preachers of righteousness, and shepherds who are not moved by popular opinion, but care for the sheep.

A THIRST FOR GOD

As I go to prayer this morning, my simple New Year’s fervent desire remains the same: to be closer, to draw nearer to the One who knows everything about everything and holds the future of our lives here and in eternity in His hand. If only we will die to our flesh and submit whole-heartedly to Him.

Are you narrowing the boundaries of your flesh, so the glory can increase?

PRESENT THOUGHTS

I sat under the tutelage of the late Kenneth E. Hagin. He used to say that God can be more real to you than the chair you’re sitting in, the car you drive, and the person sitting next to you. Oh, how true I knew those words to be! They were reality to me.

He used to speak of getting lost in prayer and fearing he wouldn’t return. What???

Yes, few men have been out in the realm of the Spirit so far that they got afraid. He lived in that realm, more conscious of God than anything else. He cultivated his spiritual life and trained his spirit like few have. Oh yes, he was just a man with faults like every other man, but he went farther than most. I can follow a man like that.

Leonard Ravenhill, another who walked closed to God, said that every man has as much of God as they want. Hard to hear but so true.

The great evangelist Billy Graham said he was the biggest failure because he spent too much time with men and not enough time with God. That’s also hard to hear and believe. He was 80 when he said that.

Narrowing the boundaries of the flesh so the glory can increase (Rom 12:1-2)

Carolyn’s dream of 3-4 body-sized grills with actual full bodies on the grills being rolled – all brown and charcoaled; slow death. Behind the grills were luscious fruit trees.

Death leads to the bearing of much fruit.

In proportion to your life of prayer and fasting is the degree of the impact and fruit of your life and ministry on others.

MOVING FROM PROCRASTINATION TO CONSECRATION & PRAYER

The following Holy Spirit inspired words were spoken through the late Kenneth E. Hagin years ago to the body of Christ. They still apply today. Whosoever will, let him hear what the Spirit of God is saying to the Church.

“Don’t draw back. The time is near, the time is at hand. No longer can you wait; no longer can you procrastinate. No longer can you say, yeah, in another day I’ll consecrate. In a later day, I’ll wait on the Lord more. In another day, I will spend more time with Him. In another day, I’ll put my flesh under. No longer. Don’t draw back and don’t pull back.

“The Spirit of the Lord pleads with you. Come forward, more for- ward. Answer the call you hear in your heart. Respond unto the Spirit of God. It is not bad. It is good. The price that would be paid in the flesh is nothing compared to the glory which shall be revealed. It is not bad. Do not dread it. Do not draw back from it. It is a lie. It’s a de- ception that has held you back. It’s a lie. It’s a deception that has caused you to draw back. Go on in. Taste and see that the Lord is good.

“Oh, the treasures of the things He has laid up for you. The things that your heart is hungry for. Nothing else will satisfy your soul. Noth- ing else will give you the answer in your heart. Nothing else will satis- fy what you seek. Nothing.

“Oh, push in. Respond unto the Spirit of God. Just lay those other things aside. Humble the pride and fall before Him and wait upon Him. And as you do, your soul will blossom. Your spirit will spring forth. Yea, you will be a greater blessing unto your spouse. You’ll be a greater blessing unto your family because you will bloom forth. And you won’t be restricted like before. And you won’t be vexed like before. And you won’t be hindered like before.

“Yea, you’ve done some things for them (your family). You’ve drawn back and you said it was for them. But you have not been a blessing to them in that the full blessing of the Lord was not upon thee. But if you shall press in, though it might seem to cost that price in the beginning, it might seem like it costs you. It might seem like it costs them. Yea, but that’s the only way to get to the things that they desire and the things that you desire and the things that are needed.

“Yea, the things that must be in this hour, it cannot be delayed. It cannot be delayed. It must be now. Now, now is the time. So heed the call of the Spirit’s cry in your heart. Don’t say, ‘I’ll do it by and by.’ But the time is now. Do not dread or fear. It is good. Taste and see that the Lord is good. Taste and see that the Lord is good!

“Don’t think it’s too high a price. It’s nothing in comparison to the light and the glory that shall be revealed. Draw nigh unto Him. He shall draw nigh unto thee. Seek His face. He shall reveal Himself unto thee even in a greater way. And you shall rise up and you shall be en- abled to be a far greater blessing.

“And your latter end shall exceed and it shall overflow and it shall be abundant in blessing and glory and grace. And the evil one that thought to deter you and thought to lie to you and keep you from it, you shall look at him and you shall say, ‘Ha, ha, ha, ha… Your plan did not work. Ha, ha, ha, ha… It did not succeed. Ha, ha, ha, ha… I did not believe it. Ha, ha, ha, ha… I obeyed… Ha, ha, ha, ha… I ran my course. Ha, ha, ha, ha… I finished my job. Ha, ha, ha, ha. I have accomplished His will and with His glory I am filled. His grace, mercy and glory is with me day by day.’

“And those things that once held you, those things that for years, years, and years deceived you and held you out; you shall look at them from that higher place. And they shall seem nothing to thee. They shall seem small and despised in your eyes. You shall look upon them in dismay and you shall say, ‘Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.” You shall see far, ha, ha, ha, ha… And you shall know well, and you shall move sure, and shaken shall be hell. And their power shall be confused for His authority you’ve used.’

“And that which they greatly feared (hell’s demons) shall have happened. For they feared, they feared that the revelation of truth would come into the Earth. They feared that it would come through the heavenly host that would withstand it. They feared that someone would stand. They feared that someone would seek. They feared that some would penetrate into that realm.

“When the revelation comes, the truth doth set the captives free. And that which they have greatly feared, it shall even come to pass. It’ll come to pass. God shall reveal His truth unto His people. Yea, we’ve rejoiced in the light. And we’ve seen a little bit. And we moved, but, oh, there’s so much more. There’s so much more. And the enemy would have us just revel in what we see and what we know and not push and penetrate to hold fast to receive more. But it shall not be for a glimpse we do see. And we shall not be satisfied until the truth in our hearts abides. We shall not draw back, and we shall not fear until we have all that God would give year by year…increasing glory to glo- ry, light to light. Not doing it in the flesh, but by the good faith fight.

“And His plan shall be accomplished and His ways shall be straight. And then it shall be ready. He shall come. He’ll not be late. And His people shall have done His bidding, and His people shall have heard His voice. And His Spirit shall have reaped the harvest through the church and His people shall rejoice. He calleth thee higher. Continue to look down on lowly things on the ground, but look up and see what He has reserved for thee. And by faith, let your heart reach out.

“His Spirit lifts you up. Your heart has craved to know him. You shall know what your mind has hungered to know. You shall do what you were created to do.”

This excerpt was taken from the final chapter of my last book, Cleansing The Temple.

In this modern day of increased media and technology, where platform, popularity, and public ministry are valued and promoted far above prayer and private ministry, we need to return to our roots.

May the Lord purge us from mammon worship, every form of pride and iniquity, the wisdom of man, and false success. May He purify us and make us a house of prayer.

May your own personal temple and the corporate temple of God be consecrated to Him and become a house of prayer in this hour.

SYNOPSIS

“2020 will be a year when the nation will be totally divided. It will be the year that will see the election of your lifetime.” — Mario Murillo 

In many ways, the entire decade of the 2020s will be the most tumultuous decade in American history. The soul of our nation hangs in the balance.

The battle rages, not only for a nation, however, but more importantly, for a cleansed, wholesome, and powerful Church. Instead of the Church being a subculture, the real believers shall become a counterculture.

We have come to the brink of the realization now that authentic Christianity will survive without America, but America will not survive without authentic Christianity.

This is a book to help believers navigate the tumult of the 2020s and to emerge as an authentic remnant. 

One day left to take advantage of our pre-order offer.

ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT WORDS FOR OUR TIME

One prominent minister called it fine wine. Another called it a lightning bolt from heaven. Mario Murillo said it was one of the most important words for our time.

My new book, The Tumultuous 2020s and Beyond, is meant to both shake and steady the American Church — to help believers not only survive but thrive in this new decade. I really want you to have a copy.

I’m not in the business of selling books. I’m in the business of writing the word of the Lord. My primary mission and small part in God’s kingdom is to help restore the real spirit of Christianity in the church today and to light a fire in your spirit. Humanly speaking, I’m a nobody and am continually amazed that the Lord chose me to be a spokesman for Him. Many are much more qualified than I am. But the Lord uses foolish things to confound the wise.

We are at a crossroads in our nation. You will see some more significant and rapid changes every few months before the big one hits that changes everything. Believers must be prepared and positioned. A severe warning is necessary in such tumultuous times.

Please help me spread this message God gave me. The first step is to read it yourself.

For only a few more days until 12/30 a signed copy of my book is available for a small discount with free shipping. Here’s the link:

DON’T DIVIDE SPIRITUALITY FROM POLITICS

Can you not see and discern that politicians are given power to make decisions that affect us personally and determine our future?

They will influence not only the way our government runs and the state of our economy and our money but also our public institutions of learning and Church houses. Most importantly, politicians will legislate laws that will exalt either righteousness or evil in our nation for many years to come. That’s not political; that’s spiritual!

Somebody will take your hard-earned money and use it for their un-Godly agenda. Someone is already spending it and getting richer. Many who will run for office do not care about our national debt; they will help create another Great Depression. They want to give away free American citizenship, free American healthcare, and free education to everyone who can break through our borders. And they will make sure you pay for it. How can that not stir you to action?

Worst of all, politicians will enact laws that will use your tax money to indoctrinate your children with homosexuality, transgenderism, socialism, false gods, and false religion. How can you continue to be indifferent?

If politicians and their political parties, the media, Hollywood, and academia can convince people on these issues, then they can convince them on anything else, including the rejection of the gospel. This is the reason many youth abandon Jesus Christ and the Church after they leave home and go to college.

Did you know, based on the politics of Twitter, Facebook, Google, and other liberal-run organizations and companies, that it’s “hate speech” if you say that Islam is not a peaceful religion or that homosexuality is a sin or that transgenderism is wrong? But they are perfectly fine with banning Chick-Fil-A at airports or removing a monument cross or a nativity scene at a public place or just harassing Christians. Can you not see that voting for politicians with strong core moral values and truth and righteousness affects you personally, your family, children, and grandchildren? But the change is gradual and so subtle, like the proverbial frog in boiling water. What one generation tolerates, the next generation celebrates. We are seeing it all around us.

Politics and politicians continually make decisions that affect these issues. If you love God and you love people, you will be passionately interested in what values and principles are being legislated by our governmental leaders. This is politics, my friends. How can you say God does not care about politics?

As I examine things in the political realm since Donald Trump has become president, here is something I see. In recent attempts from the Democrat Party to unseat President Trump and run him out of office, I have noticed the dominant influence of the dirtiest politics I’ve ever witnessed in my lifetime and how the FBI, the attorney general, and FISA court judges are all falling under the sway of this extreme avarice for political power.

We have sunk to new levels of evil and the slimiest kind of wickedness and corruption when you add media power to magnify and propagate political power in order to destroy a sitting president. We have moved further and further away from the position of a party that offers to provide the best leadership to truly benefit the people into a political party that is willing to overthrow its own freedom to be in power. God help us!

We need to be praying and looking to the Lord for the best leadership for this country and stop thinking we can do this without Him. This is an early reminder to get engaged in the political process and let the Lord guide you in your vote in 2020 and beyond. Look carefully at your candidate and make sure that what they stand for politically and personally is what best represents your values and the direction you want for the country.

This is not about domesticating or politicizing Jesus into our perceived “cause.” I am well aware that His kingdom is not of this world, and it is not an either-or polarity. It is a third way. But He loves righteousness and hates iniquity, and we should live and vote the same way.

As a preacher stated recently, don’t fall into the trap of making an artificial divide between spirituality and politics. The devil is intensely spiritual, and he loves to infiltrate and possess media, entertainment, institutions of learning, and politics to promote his evil cause and make the broad road to destruction even broader for our nation’s people.

“We do not have to invade the United States; we will destroy you  from within.” Nikita Khrushchev

“Our strategy is to destroy the enemy from within, to conquer him through himself.” Adolf Hitler  

“Our constitution was made for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.” — John Adams 

http://holy-fire.org/2020-book-promo.html

OH PREACHER! YOU BETTER START INCLUDING POLITICS IN YOUR PREACHING

Preachers and all Christians who actually apply their faith to politics are the great final barrier to the corrupt socialist/communist agenda that has infiltrated our American society. This is why they are now being targeted.

There are humanistic ideologies and demonically designed strategies that have infiltrated our educational institutions and the political realm, and yes, even the Church, that are moving us toward universal egalitarianism and a cultural Marxism.

Could this be the manifestation of the spirit that Kenneth E. Hagin saw in an incredible 1963 vision?

Atheistic Hatred Inspired Communism

I believe the greatest enemy in decadent times like these may be the sleepy, lukewarm, and deceived Church. A subversive effort by the leftist-leaning liberals to infiltrate the Church and turn people away from the real gospel and true doctrine is gaining momentum in this hour. The purpose of this agenda is to sway the church toward a radical political movement and the spread of socialism and atheistic, hatred-inspired, communism in our nation. (Enemies Within The Church) (The Corruption Of American Christianity) (The Corruption Of American Christianity — Part 2)

Many professing Christians would mock and scoff at such a notion. They easily yield to that old devilish compromise and serpentine excuse that comes creeping in, that says: “don’t preach on politics”; “don’t mix politics with religion”; and “God is not interested in politics.”

Wrong.

WHY WE MUST PREACH ON POLITICS 

I will preach on politics. I will include sins of the culture and the wickedness and corruption of politics in my preaching — and all the more so because politics has a trickle-down effect that touches each one of our lives. It is my responsibility and duty before God and before the people to do so. The whole counsel of God includes exposing people’s sins and the sins of a nation.

“Herald and preach the Word! Keep your sense of urgency [stand by, be at hand and ready], whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable. [Whether it is convenient or inconvenient, whether it is welcome or unwelcome, you as preacher of the Word are to show people in what way their lives are wrong.] And convince them, rebuking and correcting, warning and urging and encouraging them, being unflagging and inexhaustible in patience and teaching” (2 Tim. 4:2 — AMPC).

Part of every preacher’s calling is to press the influence of kingdom culture on the existing culture, as John the Baptist did (Lk. 3:10-14, 19-20).

If you want to be Biblical, faithful, and true, preach and press the values of the kingdom of heaven upon the existing culture, which includes politics.

Politics can be righteous or wicked. It can be good or evil. It can be moral and upright or immoral and corrupt.

Politics can administer life or death.

Politics can administer God’s will for America or an anti-Christ agenda of atheism, socialism, communism, and globalism.

Politics can administer capitalism and kingdom economic principles or atheistic communism and humanistic socialism.

Politics can administer new covenant kingdom marriage or unnatural, perverse same-sex marriage and gender-confusion lunacy.

Politics can administer God-given inalienable rights and providence or government dominion and satanic agendas to rob Christ and the people of their inheritance.

Politics can administer Christian ideals or Islamic corrupt ethics.

Politics can administer equality or racism.

Politics can administer wisdom or foolishness.

Politics can administer morality or whoredom.

Now tell me that kingdom preaching does not include politics! You cannot get more kingdom than to oppose liberal-leftist politics and their evil agenda.

WHAT FINNEY AND FRODSHAM SAID 

We better pay attention to the words of Charles G. Finney, the great American revivalist, who knew something about pressing the influence of kingdom culture on the existing culture, which included politics and the way people vote.

“The time has come that Christians must vote for honest men and take consistent ground in politics or the Lord will curse them. Christians seem to act as if they thought God did not see what they do in politics. But I tell you He does see it, and He will bless or curse this nation according to the course the Christians take in politics.” — Charles G. Finney

We better also heed Stanley Frodsham’s prophetic words, for we are nearer to their fulfillment than when he first spoke them in 1965.

“With great judgments will I plead with the population of this country. Great darkness is coming upon the countries that have heard My gospel but no longer walk in it. My wrath shall come upon them.”

And then he prophesied this:

“Before I visit the nations in judgment; I will begin at My house. When I do cause My wrath to come upon the cities of the world, My people shall be separate. I desire a people without spot or wrinkle, and such will be preserved by Me in the time of My wrath, which will be coming upon all iniquity and unrighteousness.” (Cleansing The Temple)

It is high time for the Church to awaken and arise. The enemy has entered in through our back door and is stealing our liberties and our land.

I trust more of us are now coming to the realization that although authentic Christianity can survive without America, America cannot survive without authentic Christianity.

It’s time to take the fight to the enemies within.

This quote seems quite appropriate for the quagmire of wickedness and corruption we find ourselves in as we soon welcome in the tumultuous decade of the 2020s.

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” — Abraham Lincoln

WHAT MARIO MURILLO SAID ABOUT MY NEW BOOK

Warnings from God carry only two potential outcomes. The first is a profound gratitude when certain disaster is averted. The other is unbridled remorse for ignoring the warning.

Today, warnings from God must navigate a minefield of cheap grace, false hope, and arrogance. Too many preachers today sound the same, even have the same inflections in their voice. They are dancing before the Body of Christ with false comfort every bit as much as the seduced prophets danced before Ahab in 1 Kings 22.

In the midst of that, Micaiah the prophet—who suffered the greatest pressure ever to conform and sound like everybody else—reacted with one of the most courageous phrases in history. “As the Lord lives, I will speak what the Lord says to me” (1 Kings 22:14).

We must never look at circumstances. We must see through them. Once you see through them you must see past them. You can only do this with warnings that come by God’s Spirit.

THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s AND BEYOND by BERT M. FARIAS is a warning from God to protect you in the coming days. Bert says what the Lord told him to say and he does not care about the consequences. The 2020s will be the greatest test American believers have ever faced. 

Never forget that God given warnings are sent out of love, not anger, or hate. This book is a Godsend to help you not only face the 20s but to thrive for God in them.

It is my sincere prayer that God will turn this much needed warning into a much heeded warning.
