An American wake up call

By Mario Murillo

A locust-like cloud of mountain renaming, climate-science changing, grievance industry law suits, race baiting, heterophobia, flag burning, random beatings of citizens and cop-killing have descended on us.  They are all connected—they are all tentacles from the same beast.

As I write this, BIG GAY is bussing its storm troopers to a small town in Missouri.

Here’s why: Two hundred students protested to keep a boy that “self-identifies” as a woman–but is still anatomically male—from going in the girl’s locker room.  Turns out the girls don’t want his anatomicals in their dressing area.  Somehow, in the mind of secular progressives, his intrusion into their showers supposedly ranks up there with Rosa Parks sitting in the front of the bus.

So the activists are coming to the football game in retaliation.  Only, it is not retaliation… it is premeditated bullying—it’s a staged event.  Black Lives Matter taunts by design.  Their chants of “kill the police” are strategic.  It is low-grade ISIS tactics.

America, your wake up call is this:  His fullness Obama is pleased with the multifaceted undoing of order and civility.  He is overseeing the demolition of democracy.   But there is something even darker at work: systematic Christian persecution.

On June 25, I posted this prediction: “The Holy Spirit made it clear that persecution against Christians is going to spike in the United States in the next few months.  He also made it clear that this would touch off a towering flow of miracles of healing.”

Now let me state that at the time there was little reason to expect this prediction to be fulfilled.  Experts said that the Supreme Court would not legalize same sex marriage.  On top of that…gay leaders assured us that they would not take legal action against Christians if same sex marriage prevailed.  The court did and the activists did.

For the first time in American history, Kim Davis sits in jail for being a Christian.  I solemnly warn you that a much larger wave of government abuse of Christians is on the way.

However, the last half of the prediction is: A towering flow of miracles of healing.   That is happening!  Something amazing going on in Branson, Missouri: A nuclear explosion—inside a church building!   You heard right.

An innocent church building that was minding its own business has been commandeered for revival. From here, shock waves of Glory are crashing into Branson and parts unknown.

Crowds are forming as early as 4:30 every night get seats at Jubilee Christian Center.  Reports of divine healings and dramatic conversions replace local gossip over lunch counters, in stores, and at schools.

Branson 5

John Burton took this picture just as a miracle happened.  He said on his Facebook page later, “I have not seen this kind of raw supernatural power in many years.”

How can I describe Living Proof Branson to you?   It is an explosion that keeps on exploding.   Word spread.  In one night the audience doubled and is about to double again.  Something happened in the people; it has become the trademark of Living Proof Branson.  Hundreds of hearts become one beating heart—a heart with unending passion for Jesus.

The reports of healings are staggering.  Healings of cancer, diabetes, and every other kind of malady have been reported.

After the meetings, into the wee hours, postings about God’s power spread through social media.  Post after post confirms healings and extols the power of God in the meetings and compels people to come to the meetings.

I have had good meetings before—this is nothing like a good meeting.  This has all the elements of an awakening.  This is a fire that will not be put out and it can rage across America.  In other words, it is not a revival meeting…it is an American wake up call.

THE NEXT MEETING IN BRANSON IS SEPTEMBER 11.

KIM DAVIS: SPEAK UP OR PREPARE FOR THE REHABILITATION

HERES WHY

ASHLAND, Ky. — A county clerk who, through her defiance of a federal court order to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, became a national symbol of religious opposition to same-sex marriage was jailed Thursday after a federal judge here declared her in contempt of court.

KIM DAVIS: SPEAK UP OR PREPARE FOR THE COMING REHABILITATION

By Mario Murillo

The dangerous cougar–ignored by the park ranger–made its way to the city.  The ranger said, “It’s a job for law enforcement.”  The policeman let the lion into the neighborhood because he thought; it’s a job for the ranger.  The man—whose child was terrorized by the cougar–was vilified for stopping the animal.

Kim Davis is a federal employee right?  She should enforce the law right?  Wrong!

Perhaps a better analogy is this quote from Martin Niemöller a famous protestant leader who opposed Hitler and spent his last 7 years in a concentration camp:

“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— 
because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— 
because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

Radical feminists, uber-liberals and gay activists have to make this about marriage equality when it has nothing to do with equality.  This is the ongoing march of tyranny.  A march that should have been stopped–and would have been stopped–way up the line were it not for cowardly pastors, conservative politicians, and all Americans who claimed to value the constitution and the rule of law but did not speak out.

Had the government concocted a law that required all couples to recite a Christian prayer before they were allowed to marry, I would be equally outraged.

I would see it as activist law created to oppress a certain group for the express purpose of removing their freedom and expanding control.  That is precisely what is happening here but in this case the purpose is to checkmate Christians into situations that will justify their arrest.

The gay marriage law is a terrible law that should equally horrify Christians and gays because of how it was spawned.   It was created by a Supreme Court intimidated into breaking the law by Barack Obama.  Obama does not care about gays—he cares about power.

Kim Davis refused to enforce federal law out of conscience. I find it hilariously disingenuous that secular progressives are condemning her for this.  They condemn her for not enforcing federal law while they cheer San Francisco for disobeying federal immigration law.   At least, in Kim Davis’ case nobody was murdered because of her act By the way, why isn’t anyone putting the Mayor of San Francisco in jail for contempt?  What about arresting all of the civic leaders of all the sanctuary cities?

Not only this, but federal immigration law can pass constitutional muster—the concoction that came out of the Supreme Court on marriage cannot.

 

And You Christians who feel that “we cannot force God’s law on Gays” have it totally wrong as well.  This has nothing to do with Christians forcing anyone to do anything. The only person being forced to do anything is Kim Davis and she is being forced to violate her faith and her constituents who elected her because of her Christian values.

It is silly to say she is giving us a bad name.  It is all of the Christian appeasers that are doing the real harm.  Charles Spurgeon said, “It is a very ill omen to hear a wicked world clap it hands and say well done to a Christian man.”

It is also silly to say that she can just get another job…do we just keep retreating?

The key to all of this is that Kim Davis understands what is coming next.  That is the big deal!  Obama and his toady secular progressives are not done forcing Christians into situations that silences and diminishes their rights.  The overreach continues.

Here is a final thought:  The attorney who represents the State of Oregon that prosecuted believers Melissa and Aaron Klein for refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding said, “Our goal was not to put them out of business but to rehabilitate them.  “Rehabilitate,” get it?  They want society to think Christianity is a disease of the mind.

Kim Davis took a stand against the coming rehabilitation.  What about you?

What we know, that others do not, about reaching youth in America.

What we know, that others do not, about reaching youth in America.

By Mario Murillo

The picture you see is nearly 200 people—mainly youth—surrendering to Christ.  In city after city, this miracle is being repeated.  Our audiences are getting younger and signs and wonders are increasing.

Since I last wrote you, we have hit Austin, Texas, Branson, Missouri and Turlock, California.  Yuba City was so explosive that we are forced to return there on October 11-13th.

In Branson the fire is still falling–many have told us the miracles and salvation of youth are unheard of here–forcing us to extend meetings for a third time.

Here is what we know, that others do not, about reaching youth in America.  That statement sounds arrogant but this is not written in arrogance.  This is coming to you in humble fear and trembling.  It is not a boast—it is a statement of fact. 

what we know 2 copy

We declare it because we are in a war.   The great ambition in any war is victory.  To get victory, generals know there are two imperatives:

-You must get the best weapons, in the right hands, as fast as possible.

-You must demonstrate that the fighting is effective.  That way, vital support for the war will grow.

Those are the two unambiguous goals of this letter.  I am going to show you that we have been given a precious insight and edge in the war for our children’s souls.  Then I am going to call for you to take action in this battle for our nation’s survival.

First, here is what we know:

  1. Confronting Obama and speaking out for America does not alienate youth. The wreckage of his administration, the cruelty of his actions toward his political enemies and his arrogant disregard for the economy has cost him dearly among young people.

In a detailed, national poll released by Harvard’s Institute of Politics, nearly half of young voters said they would remove President Obama from office if they could.

We do not preach a right-wing message, but it is our duty to oppose willful destruction of our constitution and our way of life.  The important thing is to do it sparingly, in context, and only by the direction of the Holy Spirit.

Opposing Obama does not close the door to youth; in our case, it opens it.  They blame him for destroying their future.  It may look hip and cool to some preachers to remain silent, but many youth consider them traitors.

What we know 5

  1. They want the Gospel, not gimmicks. In her ground breaking article, How the Seeker-Sensitive, Consumer Church Is Failing a Generation, Dorothy Greco said:

“The millennial generation’s much-talked-about departure from church might lead those of us over 30 to conclude that they have little interest in Jesus. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Unfortunately, their spiritual coming of age has coincided with many Protestant pastors relying on a consumer business model to grow and sustain their churches. This template for doing church and the millennials’ hunger for authenticity has caused an ideological collision.”

Youth feel a huge let down when they go to church and get nothing challenging.    That is why we don’t waste time trying to create a rock concert atmosphere…we are not trying to “relate.”

We openly preach the entire message of Jesus, including the Cross and the Blood.  This touches something deep inside this generation.   Youth want truth.  They sense impending disaster. They know they need something that will last no matter what. They want rock-solid answers, not fantasies.

  1. They want to experience the supernatural presence and power of God. There is nothing more wonderful than that moment when the Holy Spirit begins to do miracles witnessed by a new generation.

In Turlock, God fixed His gaze on a young girl in the balcony.  (As His unworthy servant, I share this with great concern that Christ be given all of the glory). I opened my mouth and out came a list of the names of illnesses and the location of those illnesses in her body.

The collective gasp in the crowd bore witness to the fact of an undeniable miracle.  Her friend told us later that this complete healing revolutionized her and still reverberates to her friends.What we know 3

We get out of God’s way so He can demonstrate his love and power in a way that Main Street will admit that something real is happening…it is the key to our children’s future and our way of life.

Not one young person leaves the meetings spooked by the gifts of the Holy Spirit.  The look of wonder is worth every drop of suffering it took to bring us to this point.

Now I want to talk straight to your heart.

The golden moment—the moment Living Proof is all about–is when youth fully realize that the same God who just healed a serious disease can heal their soul.

Of all the things I could wish for in this world, it would be to have you there when it happens.   If you could, then you would share in my great joy and my great agony.  We need to do so much more than we are doing!   More people need to know about our meetings!  Every night, I leave ecstatic, yet frustrated.

Few events anywhere in America combine the weapons we do in our meetings.   You can’t find another event that so completely and effectively confronts youth with the Gospel.

What intensifies my frustration is that in the few times that we have been able to eke out extra finances to advertise in secular media, our impact grows exponentially. There is no reason we should be held back like this!  We should be able to shout the news of our meetings from the rooftops!

Now, I am asking you to help me do something that will greatly increase our effectiveness.  I have made the decision to leave Christian Television.  Unchurched youth are not watching–it is useless as a tool to get youth to our meetings.

On Wednesday, June 24, I received this clear message from the Lord: “Persecution is about to increase suddenly, but so will my signs and wonders.”    I released a blog about this on Thursday morning, the 25th.

It happened the next day!   On June 26, gay marriage became law.  Suddenly, it was open season on Christians.  Now massive law suits seek to silence the church.

I had to pray and ask, “What do I do if all normal channels are closing?”  The answer is that you don’t wait; you seek wisdom from God.  I did and came to a big decision:

I must leave Christian television and begin building a youth audience through the internet and social media. 

We can build a massive youth internet audience for a lot less than you think.  But I must upgrade our equipment.  The good news is that we can do it for only $30,000!

America can still be turned back into one nation under God!  To get there, we must take the steps to fight evil with wisdom and cunning from the Holy Spirit.

I am asking you to write one big historic check to help me build this media. You are the heart of this ministry and you love America.  I know that if we pray and obey we will reach our goal of $30,000!

Branson: It hasn’t even started yet!

STARTED

Branson: It hasn’t even started yet!

By Mario Murillo

Tonight was a nuclear blast—inside a church building.  Even the most confirmed skeptic felt the concussion of the blast.  The Holy Spirit did not bless—He dominated.   It was total domination. God was passing judgment on disease, demons and religion.

But first I made this announcement: “this is the last night,” the reaction was instant disappointment and righteous indignation.   Then I said, “Let me finish. This is the last night of our preparation—the revival in Branson hasn’t even started yet.  These meetings were some of the best I have ever seen, but they are nothing compared to the meetings that will come now.”

surrender

All day God worked on me about how we had not even started yet.  We had only touched the surface of HIS GLORY.  The meetings He wants have not yet happened.  The order came: Clear the decks and prepare for fire, glory and supernatural power that was beyond my experience.

“So when do we continue?” The Lord answered: “on the day that brought misery on the nation.”  September 11th, 2001 we were attacked. Jets crashing into the Twin Towers and agony crashed into America’s soul.   On Friday, September 11, 2015 we will declare HEAVEN OVER 9/11!

I told the audience that they were an army not a congregation.  I reminded them of Psalm 110:3 “Your people will be a willing army in the day of your power.”  I explained that it was time to learn three things: how to climb a tree, walk on water, and tear the roof off.

Branson 3

  1. Zacchaeus would do whatever it took to see Jesus so he climbed a tree. Luke 19: 1 “Then Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. 2 Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich. 3 And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way. 5 And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.” 6 So he made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully.”

I told them that this revival would only survive if we wanted to see Jesus, know Jesus, keep focused on Jesus and do whatever it takes to grow in Jesus.

Branson preaching

  1. Peter wanted to live in the supernatural, so he asked permission to walk on water. Matthew 14:28 “And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” 29 So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.”

We are going to experience extravagant gifts and towering miracles.  We must learn to walk on water.  We must venture out of the boat.  We must leave the safe zone. We must join Jesus in the greater works.

  1. We must learn to tear the roof off if necessary. Luke 5:19 “When they could not find a way to do this because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on his mat through the tiles into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus.”

We must never get discouraged or take our eyes off of the prize.  When the way looks impossible we must find a way where there is no way.

The sermon ended–the fire began.  Healing came.  Those who could not walk did.   In fact, whatever anybody could not do, they could do now. One young man out of his wheelchair kept yelling: FIRE, FIRE, FIRE!  Several fell to the ground as the GLORY overpowered them. Not one square inch of the house was untouched by the power of God.

Lost souls had no protection against this display of power.  They eagerly filled the front and were saved.

I have never felt this way before.  It is a feeling that this miracle in Branson is barely taking shape.  Something astounding is growing and if we leave it alone it will spread until it envelopes our entire nation.

Are we watching history unfold right before our eyes?

unfold

Are we watching history unfold right before our eyes?

By Mario Murillo

I walked out of the meeting last night in Branson reeling under conviction.  Tonight shook me to my core.  It is not that I have not seen great meetings before—I have seen astonishing healings and massive altar calls—but I have never seen all of the elements of awakening together in one room, at one time. Never!

Let me go further…I have never seen a night that carried this kind of fire power.  This has the aroma of answered prayer; unspeakable yearnings that have bombarded heaven for decades.

For those who must know, yes, there were wonderful healings.  One woman who was told to go home and die by doctors received faith to be healed.  Cancer ravaged her body, specifically her leg.   I saw the moment that faith obliterated fear.  She stood and walked in open defiance to the disease.  Her act of faith ignited others.  Soon we were watching militant ministry.  People overcome by compassion started praying for others.  At least 50 people confessed that they had been healed.

Now the floodgates of salvation opened wide.  A surging billow of holy love swept over the people and washed them up to the front of the building where they sobbed their way to Christ.

surrender

I took a fleeting look at the audience.  Tears of gratitude flowed from the faces of saints who had not seen this kind of fire and glory in 40 years.

As I said, I walked out reeling under conviction.  Are we watching history unfold right before our eyes?  What caused my inner agony is that I knew all too well the answer to that question: It all depends.  Can we keep the hand of man from reclaiming this revival the way the weeds reclaim abandoned towns?  Will hidden agendas surface and swallow the move like a sink hole?

What will the epitaph say?  Will it be death by emotionalism, legalism, hedonism or pride? It was at this moment that it became so clear that this act of God should not end… that my first duty was to keep evil at bay while staying out of the way.

A great and mighty revelation struck me.  The Moravian revival that began on August 13th, 1727 in Germany lasted 100 years.  It led John Wesley to Christ.  It featured the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, unceasing prayer and sent out more Protestant missionaries than the entire church had in 200 years.  It is a testimony of a movement that never stopped praying and obeying.

Most people do not realize that Henry Ford did not invent the automobile and Thomas Edison did not invent the light bulb.  Both inventions came decades before.  What they did, was to create sustainable versions of the car and light bulb.  That is why we remember them.

Our  task is clear in Branson.  Seek sustained revival…if we can lose ourselves to the Holy Spirit then we can see history—nation changing history—unfold before our eyes.  What will the meeting be like tonight?

END TIME VALUES

DavidEND TIME VALUES

By David Wilkerson

God is doing a secret work in our day. He is raising up a hungry people who are growing more and more dissatisfied with the fleshly, worldly system as it now exists — even in the church.

These God-hungry people are saying among themselves, “This is not it. There is something more. The bigness and the sensationalism of it all has left us empty and dry. We want more. More than entertainment. More than big, showy buildings. More than a shallow celebrity gospel. We want deeper values. We want to see Jesus. We want spotless robes of righteousness. We want to go back to doing things in total dependence on God.”

I see it all over the nation today — disillusioned Christians searching for reality. The people in the pew are beginning to fast and pray. They are the ones who now weep between the porch and the altar. And, they are crying out for more depth and more of eternal values from the pulpit. If the minister of their church goes on in some egocentric way, pursuing expensive dreams, they will go out looking for a place where their deepest spiritual needs will be met.

I know it to be a fact that numerous ministers share my own desperate hunger for a deeper work of God in the church and ministry today. There seems to be a secret underground network of men of God who are stripping themselves down, humbling themselves, and getting back into the secret closet of prayer. Recently I have met a number of ministers, of various denominations, who are praying up to 6 and 8 hours a day. They are fasting. Some of these dear men of God grieve over conditions in the church today. God is revealing to all praying people that a glorious new work of the Spirit is about to break forth. God is going to shake everything that can be shaken. He will tear down the old political, backslidden, ecclesiastical system. He will disown the formal, super-church structure. He will chase out of His presence all who are engaging in self-promoting ministries.

Be honest, saints of God. Are you really satisfied with the religious system today, and especially in your church? Some are. But most are not getting their needs met. I believe we have gotten off the track of true spirituality. The spiritual leanness of so many Christians today is a direct result of getting into the flesh — trying to do kingdom work in our own power, with worldly methods. Our values are becoming perverted.

Shame on us! We are substituting temporal values for eternal ones. We have evangelists and teachers who specialize in telling believers how much God owes them. Material blessings are magnified, spiritual ones minimized. According to some, it is our right to be rich, successful, and immune to all pain.

These teachers point to themselves as examples of prosperity. “Look at me,” it is said, “I have proved the promises. I live well. I am never sick — I have no unpaid bills. I drive the best cars. I live in the finest home. It works for me, so believe as I do and you can have what I have.”

Eyes As a Flame of Fire

Beloved, how much of that teaching will stand up before the judgment seat of Christ? There is a growing inner knowledge in me that most of our modern, self-centered teaching is going to be consumed before the flaming eyes of the Son of God.

John, in his vision of the Son of God, saw an awesome sight.

“…his head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire…” (Rev. 1:14).

John goes on to say,

“…I fell at his feet as dead…” (v.17).

Will any of us, as teachers and evangelists, be able to stand before those piercing eyes of flaming fire? Can any Christian look Him in the eyes? No ego can withstand His gaze. No self-centered dreams can go unexposed. All secret sin will be exposed as a terrible abomination in His sight.

All the things we have accumulated will burn. All the great works we have done for Him, with such zeal and sweat, will they also burn?

How important is what you are doing to God’s kingdom? God can give you the desire of your heart, but send leanness to your soul. God assisted Israel in their desire to have a king. But He later disciplined them for their selfish motives.

Are you in some kind of competitive race? Are you doing things for God just to keep up with others? In eternity, looking back — how really necessary will it all be then?

Children of God, what is the good of what you and I are doing? Do we have motives based on eternal values? If we truly believe the end of all things is upon us, what should we be doing about purging our values? What is it going to take to wake us up and get us out of the drift toward ease and comfort?

I confess to you that it has taken years for me to live only for eternal values. I grieve when I think back of the time and money I wasted trying to build something tangible for God. I wanted something people could see. How important I thought those buildings were to God’s kingdom. I convinced myself, “God deserves the best.” He does-but not in bricks, mortar, and steel. He deserves the best of our time and yieldedness. Thank God for the day the Spirit revealed to me how shallow my values were! I spent 20 years planning programs, building buildings, running all over the world trying to show God how important to His kingdom I was. All the while my reputation grew as a minister of faith and vision. Yet, after each new project, I felt a letdown. No sooner was one building finished, and I was already planning another. I was an idea-man for God. I had more ideas than any preacher in America. Ideas on how to evangelize. How to organize New Testament programs. The programs and ideas were successful enough to entrap me and keep me on the treadmill of busy-ness.

But all along my heart yearned for more. I knew the blessing was not in building. Not in some well-planned scheme to reach the lost. Not in bigness, and not in activity. I discovered the hard way, that the glory of God, the peace and joy of the Spirit, was in being stripped down, emptied, and made totally weak. God had to expose all my values. He turned His flaming eyes on my soul and showed me I had better reject my old way of doing things, or be lost in a maze of self-imposed activity.

Now, my greatest joy is waiting upon Him for direction. I have made time to be alone with Him, and have prepared my soul to abide in His quiet presence. He is letting me sense what the Spirit is saying to this generation. The more He empties me, the more He fills me with a desire to depend only on Him for everything. I see now that all along the Lord was waiting for me to lay down all my plans, all my ambitions, and be given over to Him as a bondslave. The sweat is now gone – the pressure is off. He is recreating all my values.

The Final Shaking

What will happen when God begins to shake everything that can be shaken? When all false values tumble and earthly dreams and plans lose their meaning?

Sadly, many of God’s children are going to end up bewildered and confused. As the world moves into the era of economic collapse – when persecution falls even upon civilized nations – when governments are convulsing and tottering on the brink of total collapse — how many Christians will survive the test?

A lot of God’s people are going to wonder where they are. Ministers who are caught up in the trap of human vision will leave the ministry confused, all their work to no avail. Multitudes will be asking, “What’s it all about? What’s happening? What does the future hold? Where are we? Who can tell us the mind of God?”

We are now moving swiftly into what we know as the end time. We had better be in possession of a heavenly vision of holiness and humility. The testing time is coming down upon us with lightning speed. It is going to take more than a doctrine or a particular teaching to see us through. We are going to have to really know the Lord in His fullness. We had better have our eyes on eternal values. Only spiritual things are going to remain. Only spiritual people will understand what is happening and not faint. We must be linked up with the mind of the Spirit so we will not be thrown by the radical changes that are coming. We must bring ourselves, to the place we have nothing to lose. We need to walk away from all the junk in our lives — we are going to lose it all anyhow.

How much of God do you possess in this final hour of disintegration and fear? How earthly are you? How transitory are your desires? Have your values been sifted and purged by the Spirit of almighty God? How much of the world interests you — how much time is consumed in chasing after things that don’t matter now?

End-Time Restlessness

You will know when the Spirit is calling you out of the shallow Christianity about you. You will know when the Lord is wanting to touch you in a supernatural way. You will know when He is calling you out of the ordinary. He will stir your nest. An unexplainable divine restlessness will come upon you. You will become disinterested in what you have been doing. All your successes will leave you feeling empty and unfulfilled. Nothing that you have or do will meet the need in you for reality. You will sense that a very deep need in you has not yet been met — questions that have never been answered. A shadow of dissatisfaction will be cast over your entire life.

That is a mark of God’s dealing with you in a supernatural way, trying to get you to turn loose of all that you hold dear. It is His way of showing you that your needs are really spiritual and not physical.

You will feel His magnetic pull back to prayer — back to spiritual hunger, to broken-ness and self-emptying. Soon, you will be touching those satisfying eternal values and your soul will cry out, “This is what I’ve been wanting all along. He has taken away the earthly and replaced it with the spiritual.”

Saints, the key word is hunger. He has promised to fill the hungry heart. I have never been so hungry for God. That hunger almost overwhelms me at times. Every waking hour my heart reaches out to Him. Because His thoughts are always on my mind, the things of the world have lost their value. I see things as Paul did — nothing but the dung of this world. I am becoming a nobody — it feels so good.

Do you also sense this call to a deeper walk with God? Is your soul hungry for more of the Spirit in your life? If so, end the civil war in you — by yielding everything you have to the Master. The misery goes the very moment you surrender all to Him. You can know true peace and happiness the moment you quit trying to be somebody. Want nothing but Jesus, and your life will take on a new meaning.

Don’t Waste Another Hour

My greatest grief is that it took so long for me to get out of God’s way. I wasted years doing things simply out of compassion. I was spiritually blind, not knowing that God must clearly direct every step I take. I had an international pulpit — preaching to thousands — with crowded altars. Thank God He showed me there was much more. The numbers and the crowds meant nothing. I wanted to see people get deeper into the Lord. I wanted nothing more to do with shallow decisions. God had to totally change my way of thinking, and now, like Gideon, I know that big is not always best.

Don’t let it happen to you. Take stock of your life and values. Shut yourself up with God alone in the secret closet. Pray diligently for spiritual hunger. Ask God to give you a spirit of sorrow for wasting so much time. Pray for a greater desire for His Word. Pray for a broken heart. Pray for a purging and a purifying work in your life. Then get ready to be cast into the fire of testing.

“…I will purge the sons of Levi…” (Mal. 3:3)

I can tell you it’s worth it! The purging will not seem joyous, but rather grievous. But you will soon glorify the Lord for the results in your life. All the anxiety will be gone. All worldly ambition will die. Your spiritual eyes will be opened to truth. The Spirit will give you revelation knowledge. You will exchange the riches of this world for the true riches of Christ Jesus. You will wake up each morning with an over-flowing joy. Your soul will cry out “I found what my soul has been longing for. Rest — beautiful rest in my Lord.”

You can then say with David, the Psalmist — “In his presence is there is fullness of joy; at his right hand there are pleasures forevermore…” (Ps.16:11).

Proof Scriptures

“…for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ So then everyone of us shall give an account of himself to God…”(Rom. 14:10-12).

“…The end of all things is at hand; be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer…” (I Pet. 4:7).

“… The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light…” (Rom. 13:12).

“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build, upon this foundation gold stones, wood, hay, stubble; every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire…” (I Cor. 3: 11-15).

Glory that will not go away

 Glory that will not go away

Glory that will not go away

By Mario Murillo

THREE MORE NIGHTS HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THE MEETINGS IN BRANSON!

 

It was a miracle that we came here in the first place… then this happened.  Brace yourself.  This is completely unexpected news…we can’t leave Branson–not yet.  His Glory will not go away.  It lingers in the building.  It clings to the people.  Unquenchable fire burns in the hearts of an emerging army.  A stubborn expectation whispers “you are witnessing the birth of a historic event.”

Branson preaching

I cannot shake the feeling that this event hasn’t even started.  The pieces are barely coming together.  This infant has yet to discover its identity.

Speaking of identity…it is human nature to attach a label.  There have been glorious revivals of healing, the prophetic, faith and holiness but this child is focused on the fullness of Christ and Christ alone.

We meet again on Sunday night August 30th at 6 PM.  Monday and Tuesday will start at 7 PM. For hundreds of fire breathing revivalists this is D Day.  They are mapping out their strategies.  They are making lists of names.  They are in the grip of intercessory prayer.  Never, and I mean never, have I seen people reduced to a single beating heart of revival and outreach.

The word is out in Branson.  Two radio stations called me today to interview me about the meetings.  In both cases, I ended up preaching on the air.

The word is out further than we imagined.  A couple drove twelve hours from Minnesota to be in the meeting tonight.  People are on their way here from New Jersey.  How did they even know that we were going to extend the meetings?

We did not make the decision to add three nights…it was made for us.  The Glory decided.  Heaven declared it.  God mandated it and the people would have it no other way.

If the power, unity, love and fire in these meetings continue unabated, there is no limit to what they could do to America.

What will we be talking about in another few days?  Scores of healings have already been reported.  Some of them are truly stunning… but what is just around the corner?  What testimonies of power and glory will I be reporting to you next week?

I am compelled to think and pray on a new level.  I have sailed into uncharted waters.  Never have I needed your prayers more.  I must have wisdom and boldness that is way beyond me.
