In a recent article on his website, Mario Murillo suggests that Donald Trump’s presidency is intended by God to ignite the Church. He believes we have a window of time to fulfill a heaven-sent commission that can only be accomplished by a Church that is revived, repaired, and rebuilt. Pray into these three areas so that the body of Christ might be “…perfect, complete, and lacking in nothing” (James 1:4).
Revive, Repair and Rebuild.
Revive: God commands us to seek a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit. We dare not have church without it! We dare not utter another word in the pulpit that denies it! The word of the Lord for this hour is: Cry out to God with a heart of gratitude for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit!
Here is the key promise if we do: “Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.” (1 Samuel 10:6-7)
Repair: Both the pulpit and our moral compasses are broken. They must be repaired! Our wiring, our plumbing, and our foundations are damaged. Abortion and marriage are issues we lost because our leadership was broken. We abandoned the Bible and did not arm ourselves or our congregations with convictions.
America needs Lions of God who will roar from a righteous heart. Away with secret sin and lukewarm grace! Prayer will bring about the needed repair. The voice that shakes hell and frees men and women from bondage is forged only in fervent prayer. Satan does not respect your stage presence, your education, or your worldly tactics. He recognizes a prayerless poser. He only retreats before men and women who have been to Gethsemane.
Rebuild: We must come home to the Glorious Gospel. We must dismantle all the silly things we have tried to say to this generation. Forget about “rebranding”! We need to rebuild our sermons from the ground up. Let them be replete with Bible verses. Let them speak of the power of our mighty God. Fill them with content the Holy Spirit can use to win lost souls! Lift up the name of Jesus. The Good News must once again roll off our tongue in the office, on campus, and at the mall.
