The big news around here is that after 3 surgeries and 3 weeks of recovery in the hospital without visitors, Carolyn was discharged on June 11 and is home. Yay! Our son Daniel is also home! Double yay!! Actually, much to our delight, he is here for two reasons: 1) to help us and be a strength to us; 2) and for six weeks of job training that he will carry with him and work remotely from his apartment in Atlanta.

Furthermore, he can move anywhere in the country, and take this job with him. For an inspiring actor, that’s big. Our seed is highly favored and shall be mighty on earth, because he fears the Lord and delights in God’s commandments (Ps. 112:1-2). We are so happy to be together as a little family for the first time since last Christmas.

After a little over five weeks at home, Carolyn is healing nicely.  She is now able to stand and walk more and more every day. We rejoice in  her progress. Her leg bandages, one on each upper leg, and another one on her left calf, where the cancerous tumor was removed, have to be changed twice a day.

The surgeon took a skin graft from her right leg, and that is healing really good. In fact, the bandage or covering on that leg was permanently removed, so the skin can breathe and new skin can form quicker. The best way to describe that upper leg is like grating a piece of cheese or looking at a massive rug burn that peeled a foot of skin off. Ouch! My baby doll has been so brave, and the Lord has shown us His divine intervention and loving kindnesses in so many ways through the body of Christ. 

The journey ahead is still long with 6 weeks of radiation remaining, but the days now are definitely brighter.






A couple of years ago I preached a message on The Law Of Attraction using Rev. 22:11 as an opening text, explaining that the condition of departed spirits who’ve left this earth is irreversible. After death you will be drawn to the ruling passions you were drawn to in this life. This means that if you were drawn to places where sin reigns such as night clubs, bars, porn sites, to where evil is glorified, to where profanity, obscenities, and curses are spoken, then you will leave this earth and be pulled toward the place of those ruling desires. In this case, hell.

If you are a slave to sin and cannot stop its bondage in your life…if you do not enjoy worshiping and sharing Jesus…if you resist spiritual instruction and holy preaching you are in danger of eternal perdition. If you do not have mental freedom and peace deep down inside your spiritual nature is not in accord with God.

Heaven is for the pure and holy. Heaven is for those whose natures have changed, who’ve truly repented and been born again, and who love Jesus with all their hearts and are living wholly for Him. Holiness and sin can never touch each other. There can be no mixture. Good and evil cannot harmonize. The sinful nature of man can never harmonize with the intense purity and holiness of heaven. A sinner would be in complete discord and agony in heaven.

You’re either born again with a new nature that loves and practices righteousness or you’re still in your sins and practicing unrighteousness. Heaven and hell are determined by you and your nature, not God. He has sent Jesus Christ whose precious blood was shed that you might repent and believe the gospel and be born again (Jn. 3:7) and given power to become sons of God (Jn. 1:12).

What I’m saying is this: The great purpose of divine revelation is to warn men that their manner of living in this world has a permanent effect on their eternal destiny. Humanity’s time on the earth is very brief compared to eternity and serves to only be a dressing room to prepare your soul for eternity and secure fitness for the next life. This is what should have every man’s reverent attention in this life.

Do not let the devil lie to you and tell you that you will be unhappy if you repent and live a holy lifestyle and that somehow you’ll be missing out on the fun. Don’t believe the big lie of Satan that there can be no real enjoyment in life if you stop sinning. The truth is that the person who has truly repented has no desire to sin. The grace of God is given to a person who repents and changes that person’s desires and empowers him to live for Christ.

The fake love gospel void of repentance has deceived many. The hyper-grace gospel void of repentance has deceived many. The diabolical silence on holiness and such themes as the cross, the blood, and hell have bred defective believers who profess Christ but in works and obedience deny Him.

Many in and outside the church need to repent and believe the gospel. If we just do that it will change the Church and the nation.

Bert Farias’ books are forerunners to personal holiness, the move of God, and the return of the Lord. They also combat the departure from the faith and turning away from the truth we are seeing today. The Tumultuous 2020s and Beyond is his latest release to help believers navigate through the new decade and emerge as an authentic remnant. Other materials/resources are available on this website. You can follow him personally on Facebook, his Facebook ministry page, or Twitter.



As I was praying, Jesus said something to me that shook me to my core. He said, “what is coming into the earth is My PRIZE.” He was telling me the change coming to the church will be the reward of His suffering. I then saw a vision of the great army of soldiers. On each of the soldier’s foreheads, I saw the word “holiness” burned into the skin. I knew at that moment that the Holiness came through the fire. The Lord is raising up a holy people. He is returning for a glorious Church without spot or wrinkle. He can’t return until the Church is bearing His glory.

I went into travail. I groaned when He spoke to me. I felt His longing to return and His longing for His people to be the TRUE Church. In the current state of the church, there is no way he can come back. His blood purchased so much more than what we are walking in. He is ready to release glory. First, repentance must happen. Then the church must humble themselves and consecrate themselves unto the Lord. He will then mark them as Holy. A day is coming very soon for this army of holy warriors to arise and shine. The hordes of hell are licking their chops, thinking that they have won. The glorious Bride is about to come out of her chamber. Having encountered the King and received holiness and glory. The Bride is comprised of sons and daughters of the King. The ones that Jesus said would be engrafted in the vine and their branches will bear fruit. They will ask what they will and it will be done for them. They will operate in the greater works. The sons and daughters of righteousness will rise. They will arise and shine and give the Father all the glory!

In this encounter I saw minister friends I knew, and many others. They will have mouths like trumpets that will blast the truth. The truth of heaven will sound like an alarm to many lost. The blasts of truth will be so strong they will resurrect the dead. Many will be delivered out of darkness into the light. The truth is what Jesus intended for the church to proclaim. They will bind up the brokenhearted, proclaim liberty to the captives, and release prisoners. They will execute the Law of Christ in the earth. I sensed there will be entire nations and cities turning to the Lord as the sons and daughters herald the alarm of the King. I saw a great harvest of souls for the King.

The history of the church will be forever changed by the days ahead. The other day He gave me Habakkuk 1:5.

“Look among the nations and watch—be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told you”.

The coming days are going to blow our minds. It’s about to get crazy good. I sensed there are more changes and things coming like this pandemic. He has a plan that has been unfolding since the beginning. The earth is shaking. May we be holy unto Him. May the Lamb receive the reward of His suffering! — L. P.

Carolyn’s first two surgeries to remove a low grade malignant sarcoma which was upgraded to a grade 2, then 3 from her calf area of her leg was very successful. The surgeons were really pleased and saved the nerve, which was critical. We came together in faith and agreement on the following for these first two surgeries and the second segment of it, which I will tell you of in a moment, we will agree for the same.

This is what we have asked in faith and in agreement for: Surgical wisdom, guidance, and pinpoint precision and accuracy, and that every hand that touches her before, during,  and after the surgery is anointed by God, with no complications, no adverse effects, and a quick supernatural recovery.

The second segment of the surgery is plastic surgery to fill in the hole that the sarcoma left. It is a very delicate process involving skin grafts, and usually takes about 5 hours. Unlike the first two surgeries, which were outpatient, Carolyn will remain under observation for about five days and nights in the hospital. This second segment of that surgery was today May 21, and we just received news that every detail we asked and agreed for in faith for the reconstructive plastic surgery was granted. Praise God!!! Due to the visitor policy I will not be able to see her until she is released from the hospital, probably Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. The hospital is 90 miles north of our home, so we will be driving up to bring her home then. 

Under His overcoming grace and glory


Personally, I continue to progress and improve week by week. The Lord is helping me to balance sleep, rest, and exercise, especially the speech, occupational, and physical therapies, and not overdo it, which is my tendency. I do walk outside when it’s warm and the sun is out, which is my favorite thing to do. I love the fresh air and being out in nature more than I ever have before. I appreciate the simple things in life that we take for granted a lot more. Also, I’m eating really healthy meals, and since the day of the stroke, I have dropped 25 pounds, which is a great thing. 

I can also tell you this: The Word of God and the Holy Spirit have never been as precious to me, and my love and relationship with Jesus and the Father have grown much during this trial. I’ve been saying this from the beginning, but both Carolyn and I will come out of this stronger, better, and wiser than ever before to fulfill our calling, run the rest of our race, and finish our course. 

Thank you to everyone who has loved us, prayed for us, and supported us in any way during this time. The body of Christ has also become most precious to both of us during this most challenging time in our lives and history in God. 

We love and appreciate each one of you very much!

Under His Overcoming Grace and Glory,

Bert and Carolyn 


The following is a treatise written by Wang Yi, a pastor in China under house arrest for preaching the gospel and faithful disobedience. The time in America for faithful disobedience is on the horizon and we must possess the loving attitude and the holy courage that our Chinese brother and leader displayed. This excellent letter was drafted by Wang Yi.

China's Pastor Wang Yi gets nine years in jail for 'inciting ...

What Constitutes Faithful Disobedience

I firmly believe that the Bible has not given any branch of any government the authority to run the church or to interfere with the faith of Christians. Therefore, the Bible demands that I, through peaceable means, in meek resistance and active forbearance, filled with joy, resist all administrative policies and legal measures that oppress the church and interfere with the faith of Christians. 

I firmly believe this is a spiritual act of disobedience. In modern authoritarian regimes that persecute the church and oppose the gospel, spiritual disobedience is an inevitable part of the gospel movement.  

I firmly believe that spiritual disobedience is an act of the last times; it is a witness to God’s eternal kingdom and the temporal kingdom of sin and evil. Disobedient Christians follow the example of the crucified Christ by walking the path of the cross. Peaceful disobedience is the way in which we love the world as well as the way in which we avoid becoming part of the world. 

I firmly believe that in carrying out spiritual disobedience, the Bible demands me to rely on the grace and resurrection power of Christ, that I must respect and not overstep two boundaries. 

The first boundary is that of the heart. Love toward the soul, and not hatred toward the body, is the motivation of spiritual disobedience. Transformation of the soul, and not the changing of circumstances, is the aim of spiritual disobedience. At any time, if external oppression and violence rob me of inner peace and endurance, so that my heart begins to breed hatred and bitterness toward those who persecute the church and abuse Christians, then spiritual disobedience fails at that point. 

The second boundary is that of behavior. The gospel demands that disobedience of faith must be non-violent. The mystery of the gospel lies in actively suffering, even being willing to endure unrighteous punishment, as a substitute for physical resistance. Peaceful disobedience is the result of love and forgiveness. The cross means being willing to suffer when one does not have to suffer. For Christ had limitless ability to fight back, yet he endured all of the humility and hurt. The way that Christ resisted the world that resisted him was by extending an olive branch of peace on the cross to the world that crucified him.  

Chinese Pastor Wang Yi sentenced to 9 years in prison for ...

I firmly believe that Christ has called me to carry out this faithful disobedience through a life of service, under this regime that opposes the gospel and persecutes the church. This is the means by which I preach the gospel, and it is the mystery of the gospel which I preach.

The Lord’s servant,
Wang Yi

I’m going to do something I’ve never done before. I’m writing a special public tribute to my son on his birthday, whether he likes it or not (smile). To those who are not friends of the family, please bear with me and let me indulge a little in showering some praise, attention, and love for our son on his birthday. Here’s a little history for those who care to read.

Daniel was a miracle baby and brought a healing to our hearts after a very grievous miscarriage. He is our only son. The first picture is him at approximately four months old resting on my knees as I held him and spoke into his spirit concerning his calling. It lasted nearly 15-20 minutes. He was riveted to the spirit of my words even though obviously in his infancy he did not comprehend them with his undeveloped intellect. It was a wow moment for me.

Enjoy the rest of the pictures.




He always had such a good disposition as a baby and as a boy. He was also a great traveler. He never complained. He loved music and always had a beat going. In fact, when Carolyn was pregnant the most activity she felt in her womb was during praise and worship time at our bible school in Gambia, West Africa (see picture above with our African garb in our Bible school). To this day he plays several instruments and sings (he’s singing into a microphone in the second pic).

Daniel inherited his Momma’s joy and his Daddy’s passion. I did two things that I have no regrets for: I taught him the Word of God and did my best to live it before him. And I coached him in the major sports, especially baseball. This gave us a lot of precious time together just having fun. That’s him here pulling the trigger on a swing, and getting ready to field a ground ball, and then posing with a casting female member after a high school play. I’ll get to his acting in a moment.



Then at the direction of the Lord we sent him to public high school several years ago. Some people thought we were crazy, but he became a missionary in his school. The Lord told us that public high school was his training ground for the unconventional  ministry he was called to. He shares a wild testimony in the book we authored together (My Son, My Son) of his introduction to public school when he stood toe to toe with a bully who challenged his faith while Daniel gave Jesus glory. Needless to say, it was one of my most proud Papa moments.

Young parents should get that book, or grandparents should get it, to help their children raise their grandchildren in the Lord. Filled with nuggets of wisdom on training godly children, it is unique and intimate and will have you weepy one moment and laughing the next. I wish I could get it into the hands of more young parents, because it is preventive more than it is cure.


Daniel graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree in Communications and Broadcast Journalism in 2017, and learned several important life lessons. Sometimes pain is a young man’s greatest teacher.

Besides his relationship with the Lord, there has been one constant love in Daniel’s life that he did not inherit from me. He loves acting. I guess he had to take up acting as an only child to entertain himself. Haha! One day when he was only about 9 years of age, he was at the dinner table crying and saying something about the city of Chicago. I thought he was choking on some food, and in a bit of a panic I asked him what was wrong. He straightened up and said he was only acting. Ha! What an act! I’d give him an Oscar for that one. It was very convincing. There were real tears.

As he grew, besides being engaged in sports, he was always involved in plays and dramas since middle school. That’s what he loved the most and where he excelled the most. Even in college he acted in theatre. Here he is with us at his college graduation, the next pic is him acting in a college theatre production, and the third pic is him at home for the holidays.


He now lives in the Atlanta area and is pursuing acting in television and film. He’s managed to land a couple of minor roles on television shows, and done a few short films, but has his sights set higher. As his parents, Carolyn and I are watching his acting career unfold with holy fear and trepidation, knowing what a dark and competitive industry it is, and trusting the Lord to keep our son holy and separated in the midst of it all. We covet the prayers of our friends for him. He is always hustling and shuffling two or three jobs at a time and still finding time to do auditions and respond to callbacks.


Although Daniel has been exposed to the ministry all his life, Carolyn and I have never put any expectations on him for entering the ministry. God has to call a person, not man or his parents. All we desire is for him to serve the Lord fervently all the days of his life in whatever field he feels led to go into. He hasn’t ruled out entering into public preaching ministry some day, but it doesn’t burn in him right now, even though he’s in the Word and has a devotional life. Recently I admonished him in a short dialogue. Here’s the exchange:

ME: Please don’t ever become like Brad Pitt and certain other actors who left their true Christian and Pentecostal heritage and continue to mock president Trump and truth and righteousness. Be bold and fearless as your daddy has taught you. ☺ You can be that way and still be loving and broken over the sinful state of our needy land.

DANIEL: I already am that way! I hate the blindness of Hollywood. They all just follow the crowd there and blend in. I’m sick of political speeches from the elite, they haven’t learned to think for themselves. It’s all mindless propaganda. And that ain’t me. Jesus is my Rock and the Bible is my guiding principle, because it’s truth to me.

I was happy to hear that from him, because honestly, it takes a fearless boldness and Holy Ghost fire to stay spiritually strong in the secularized liberal entertainment industry. But Jesus did not tell us to retreat and hide from the world, but to shine our light in the midst of it. Again, please pray for him as God quickens you or leads you, especially Colossians 1:9-11, which is one of my favorite Scriptural prayers to pray for any believer. Here is a final recent picture of him as he looks now:

Daniel, you are now a young man, but Momma still calls you her baby (LOL). We love you and are extremely proud of your  stance for the Lord, and how you are now forging your own path and following what you believe is God’s plan for your life, and endeavoring to shine Christ’s light in a very dark industry.

Keep the fire burning!

Happy birthday sweet son!!!


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.

Image result for images of light on pathway

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.

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.”



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.


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

A short powerful excerpt from my new book. Release date is 1/1/20. Pre-orders coming soon. 

A conspiracy essay was written in 2015 concerning a possible Donald Trump presidency. I wondered why no one took credit for the article. To this day no one really knows who wrote it. Here is what the article said:

“They will kill him before they let him be president. It could be a Republican or a Democrat that instigates the shutting up of Trump. Don’t be surprised if Trump has an accident. Some people are getting very nervous: Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Jon Corzine, to name just a few.

“It’s about the unholy dynamics between big government, big business, and big media.They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this partnership, and it’s in all of their interests to protect one another. It’s one for all and all for one.

“It’s a heck of a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich, everyone except the American people. We get ripped off. We’re the patsies. But for once, the powerful socialist cabal and the corrupt crony capitalists are scared. The over-the-top reaction to Trump by politicians of both parties, the media, and the biggest corporations of America has been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests they are all threatened and frightened like never before.

“Donald Trump can self-fund. No matter how much they say to the contrary, the media, business, and political elite understand that Trump is no joke. He could actually win and upset their nice cozy apple cart.

“It’s no coincidence that everyone has gotten together to destroy The Donald. It’s because most of the other politicians are part of the good old boys club. They talk big, but they won’t change a thing. They are all beholden to big-money donors. They are all owned by lobbyists, unions, lawyers, gigantic environmental organizations, and multinational corporations … like Big Pharma or Big Oil.”

How mysteriously accurate this article was when the odds of a Donald Trump presidency were still very remote! Thank God he has not been assassinated. He needs our prayers now more than ever. At this writing he is 73 years old and the pressure of a second term will be immense and could take a toll on his aging body and mind. Besides, he may not even win unless prayer is made.

Can you see the miracle his election was? And while Trump is not the savior of our country in the spiritual sense, he is the beginning of a miracle for the church. I see him as a sort of gatekeeper keeping America from a stay of execution. As I heard one national voice say, he is an act of God to buy the church time to repent and return to her rightful role in American life. No, Trump is not a pastor or a moral reformer, but he is clearly an instrument of restraint to a full blown national political, moral, and spiritual disaster.  If the Church doesn’t seize the time and opportunity God has opened, disaster will strike on America like a serpent’s head.


I’d like to share a prophetic dream I had recently.

Many people were in a banqueting hall waiting for the guest of honor to arrive. He seemed to have delayed his coming. Then suddenly through a frosty designed long walled window I saw the shadow of a man with long flowing hair walking briskly.

It was Jesus.

Although I couldn’t make out His features due to the frosty window, I could see that He was walking with a fast pace in long strides as if He was on an urgent mission. As He walked into the banqueting hall He approached me and spoke as a military officer in command:

“Farias! Did you get the bread?”

Oh no! The task of keeping fresh bread on hand had slipped my mind. In a frantic dash I rushed to the supply room in the back and found some old bread from the Salvation Army food bank. Due to its staleness I started warming it up in the microwave to make it soft and fresh, all to no avail. I had neglected to purchase fresh bread before Jesus came.

The oil in the lamps of the virgins (Matt. 25:1-13) represents both the Holy Spirit (oil) and the Word (lamp). The dynamic of the Holy Spirit illuminating the word of God to us is what make the word of God fresh. Many in the body of Christ have their lamps but little to no oil. They have the word but they’re not filled with the Spirit. They may have some oil in their lamps but no added vessel with any extra oil. This is what will determine the coming separation in the Church now and at the rapture.

My wife and I have traveled extensively to churches in the last 8 years. We are seeing an unholy trend. There are more and more Pentecostal/Charismatic Christians who have a Bible but no oil. Some are not baptized in the Holy Spirit though they’ve been in a P/C church for several years. They do not have a prayer language or they don’t utilize it.

Here’s what the Lord said after the dream:

“I’m bringing back voices that are speaking what I’m saying. My people must learn to hear and discern properly for there are deceiving spirits moving even among those previously thought to be strong. It is only the revelation and the feeding and nourishment that comes from partaking of the fresh bread of My Word that keeps them in Christ and in the Light.

“There are many warnings I’ve given My people. Remember that in these days I said many would be offended and deceived and the love of many would wax cold. Many in My church are being fed stale food. The children of Israel needed fresh manna every day to look for Me, and eat of Me, and be filled with Me. Learn to come to Me every day to hear what I have to say. The Son of man was always ready to give people fresh bread because He stayed in the Father’s presence. You must do the same.”

Many celebrity ministers and well known names no longer serve fresh bread. They’re too busy or idle in prayer, and so they do not have spiritual nourishment to feed the people and are no longer following God’s perfect plan for their lives. My wife observed a minister with a household name speaking at a conference and noticed a great difference in their words. They were stale and lifeless even though there was much truth in them.

It’s not about a name or a celebrity but it’s about a vessel through whom the word of the Lord flows through. Truth is not enough. Knowledge is not enough. The kingdom of God is not in words but in power. Such is the state of many pastors and ministers in this hour. Such is the state of many believers. Remember that a big part of the warnings in the last days is that there will be many false apostles, false prophets, and false teachers. Deception is the greatest danger. Warnings could be the greatest ministry. Selah.


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


Mario Murillo called it one of the most important words for this time. A severe warning from the Lord.
