Los Banos California: Here Comes a Baptism of Great Hope in a Dark Time.
No one needs to tell you how sad and dangerous the world is right now. The masses, including those in high places have cast themselves head long into extremes of violence, addiction, and even suicide.
Good news is rare and would certainly be welcomed. That is why there is something indescribably wonderful about the events that are unfolding in Los Banos California.
At the time that we need it most, God is bathing a city with Living Proof of His Love and Power. Moreover, He is doing it in ways that are new to all of us.
Pastor John Calderon said it best: “Mario, I cannot go anywhere in Los Banos without someone walking up to me and saying ‘I was healed in one of the meetings and my healing has been confirmed by my doctor.”
On Wednesday September 3rd almost 500 people broke away from their jobs, schools and other obligations to walk around the city and ask God to bless all of the people. 500 may not sound like a lot but in this town it was huge!
Let’s say that you could have walked among these excited believers and asked them “what has happened to you that you are marching and praying?” The answers would stun and amaze. In fact, they need to be shouted from the roof tops!
Their testimonies are the exact thing that America needs to hear right now. Drugs gone, fear gone, sickness gone, guilt gone, and in its place is an unshakable faith for the future and joy in each tribulation. They would tell you how impossible their life once was and how amazed they are each day by God’s mercy and goodness to them.
Watch out! Their smile is going to get you! Their story is going to wipe out excuses. This is no escapist religion for the weak-minded; this is LIVING PROOF that operates in the real world.
20 Pastors who had little or nothing to do with each other before this miracle began now have total unity and love for one another. They are herding their people into the meetings and letting Jesus pastor the city!
Who should come this Sunday? Those who have been told by medical science that nothing more can be done need to come. Those who have tried to break a destructive habit a thousand times need to come. Those who have been gripped by fear in these explosive times must come. Those who have yearned to see God answer prayer for our nation need to come.
Anyone, who has ever stared at the night sky, and felt that there is no God who cares or listens needs to come and have their deepest question totally answered.
It all starts up again this Sunday November 16th at 10 AM/ 6 PM
