That message resonated loudly among a generation of Americans who found themselves grasping for understanding of what life in America was supposed to be. After all, we had just finished a decade of drug abuse, free sex, protests of everything one could imagine, and , of course “free love.” Vietnam had obliterated the trust of many Baby Boomers who were grasping for the truth about everything.
I met Mario backstage at a Jesus Festival in Orlando. I was struck by how down-to-Earth he was and what a great communicator he was and is. People understood his message: it was plain and based solely on the Bible. It also identified the opportunity to have a personal relationship with Jesus: “The Jesus Revolution.”
Through the last 50 years, Mario’s hair turned grey while mine turned loose! He chose to finish his early career as an evangelist to tackle the most liberal university and city in the U.S.: University of California at Berkeley, California. Through all those 50 years, Mario’s message has NOT changed. Nor have the results of his messages, not just in Berkeley, but in nations across the planet.
It was a relief for me to read this message he sent to his church members and to all of us. It’s a message you, me, and every American who struggles to understand what’s “really” going on in the U.S.
Let’s dive into what wisdom Mario shared a few weeks ago.
A few days ago, I received an email from, of all people, CNN. They wanted to know if I was still holding on to my ‘conspiracy theories.’ I thought, “Who are the real conspiracy theory nut jobs?”
Remember how the left ridiculed us for predicting disaster once Biden got into the White House? They were quite sincere and convinced that we were wrong. They said with conviction, “Oh no, you are wrong! Biden will be a president for all the people. The world will be relieved at his presence. Peace and security will ensue.”
Now, Biden is overseeing a vast human tragedy at the border, soaring gas prices, racial hatred, and the world on the brink of war.
Not only were we right—we were too right. It has degenerated faster than even we imagined. We emphatically warned that he would rain down calamity after calamity. That he would cause soaring gas prices, inflation, a spike in murder rates, unrest in the Middle East, and war.
You had none of that when Trump was President. In fact, you had the polar opposite. Under Trump, we became a world class energy exporter. Under Trump, violent crime dropped, across the board. Under Trump, the Middle East began an era of peace with the miraculous Abraham Accords. Under Trump, our borders were secure, and America stayed out of wars.
Using the media and Big Tech, evil marketing and theft, Biden entered the White House. Remember how wicked they made Trump sound? Remember how wrong it was for any decent person to vote for Trump? That Woke-A-Cola was so widespread that even pastors were explaining why they could not vote for Trump. Listen to this doozy, spouted by a man with a PhD from a Pentecostal Denomination:
“As a spiritual leader who believes the Bible is the revealed word of God, I vote for Joe Biden. Some Christian friends may point to the abortion policies espoused by Democrats, and question my pro-life convictions. But politics is NOT a single-issue enterprise. And the Bible presents a stark contrast between godly and ungodly behaviors far more extensively than simply about the unborn. Before you write an angry reply to the post, do one simple thing: read any chapter of the Book of Proverbs, and see if you can find a single verse to suggest the current president is someone to follow. In addition to several other passages, I read a Proverbs chapter daily, and cringe multiple times about the boastful man-in-office who claimed he would ‘save Christianity.’”
With little effort at all, I was able to find Trump in the book of Proverbs: “He who rebukes a man will find more favor afterward than he who flatters with the tongue” (Proverbs 28:23).
I also found a description of this misguided pastor in Proverbs: “Like a muddied spring or a polluted well are the righteous who give way to the wicked” (Proverbs 25:26).
And by the way…abortion literally is a single-issue enterprise.
I wonder how his words appear to him now―now that Biden has sold himself to do evil, every bit as much as Ahab in the Bible. I wonder how he, and the other Biden Evangelicals, feel now that every iota of what conservatives and Trump supporters said would happen, has indeed happened, and more.
Perhaps, the craziest conspiracy theory of our time was to believe that Biden was going to be good for America.
But the Left called us conspiracy nuts for believing that all of Trump’s wonderful achievements would go down the drain. Every executive order of Biden is as helpful as using leeches on a hemophiliac. Everything he has touched has rained down misery and racial hatred. And, he is pushing the world to the brink of Armageddon.
The cesspool of hatred for Israel, known as the Squad (Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and AOC), is boiling over. Democrats own that now.
The leftist progressives that have seen their conspiracy theories coming true, now know beyond knowing, that the Biden presidency is the most unimaginable horror for America. And now we know that the “Christians,” who were duped into voting for this debauchery, need to repent. Utterly repent!
I told you! Mario’s message is — and always has been — straight to the heart of all those hearing or reading his words.
With the chaos that consumes a piece of our hearts everyday in the horrors playing out on the World stage today, it’s settling to hear such a word of “truth” without an attachment message of fear, gloom and doom.
It’s a message of Truth!
Isn’t that a message for this age and beyond!
