This one thing I have asked of the Lord: How the Santa Rosa Fire touches our deepest longing by simply being a place full of the presence of God. 

Psalm 27:4 “One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek, inquire for, and [insistently] require: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon the beauty [the sweet attractiveness and the delightful loveliness] of the Lord and to meditate, consider, and inquire in His temple.”

In America’s darkest hour there is an enthralling miracle happening in Santa Rosa.  Last night only reinforced the sustained power and wonder of this event.  If only you could have seen the transformation that took place in the hearts of those who cried out to God at the altar.  If only you could have seen the way God healed before everyone’s eyes.

I can totally invite you and boast of this event because I know how little it now has to do with Mario Murillo.

No one can adequately describe it, you must experience it for yourself.  It is kind of like the fire fall in Yosemite.  People come from all over the world to catch a glimpse of that special moment when all of the elements are right.  During very rare sunsets, the light of the sun catches the falls just right and transforms it into majestic waterfall of fire.  You cannot experience it with photos, it is not the same, you have to be there when it happens.

Just like that water fall, all of the elements are right in these meetings in Santa Rosa.  “I have lived here all of my life and I can tell you that Santa Rosa has never seen anything like this.” When the man said that to me I was taken back.   Yet, I cannot deny that what is happening here is not like anything I have ever seen either.

Yes, there are souls being saved.  Yes, there are remarkable healings.  However, it is the atmosphere that is so truly amazing.  The presence of God is so real.  It is so real that it is the main soul winning force. This is what is melting hearts and drawing them to new life.

People have begun to come here from great distances.  They simply want to be in the presence.  There is no doubt that if the doors of the Living Word Family Church were left open, people would come at all hours just to sit in the atmosphere of the love and power of God.

No one but God can explain how the grinding cares of this world vanish from the very first note we sing.  People have dragged in here with the weight of the world on their souls.  They have come with the death sentence of disease; with an incurable addiction, it does not matter, there has been more than enough power to obliterate every work of Satan.

Only God knows how much longer He will permit this holy moment to last.  We are doing everything we can to stay out of His way and to keep the hand of man off of the glory.  I want to invite you to make the journey and come see for yourself why this is so unprecedented.

One thought on “

  1. I so wish and desire to be there but I can’t. I cry every day when i read these posts. I so long to see God move like this and see souls come into the kingdom. I am sure that in His presence the things that hinder me and hold me back would vanish. I too need healing and transformation, but i need and want Jesus more than it all.
