This morning at 10 AM something is happening that never happens…churches are coming together for a community wide miracle service. But that is not all…because of the historic harvest we are adding one more service tonight at 7 PM…and even that is not all…we are laying plans today to extend Living Proof beyond today. Stay posted for updates later today!
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light.
By Mario Murillo
The city that leads California in so many categories of misery is seeing a great light. Living Proof was just the name of an outreach until God jumped in and made it a fact to Yuba City.
Churches cancelled services to join together at the tent. They rounded up those who needed Christ or a healing miracle.
They converged on the tent at the Fairgrounds. Yuba City Mayor John Dukes opened with a mighty prayer and introduced me to the crowd. A mayor and an evangelist standing together to bring life to a city—think of that!
I opened my Bible and began to preach a message entitled The Grudge.
“Everything from a demonic Indian chief named Two Feathers, Gold rush greed, werewolves and witches, Anton Lavey, to a Chinese parade has been blamed for a curse on Sutter County/ Yuba County.
It is easy to believe there is a curse! Sutter County tops the list in some terrible categories: School suspensions, child abuse. Yuba City had the worst school bus accident. Marysville had the worst serial killer. This county boasts the first major school shooting in America.
This is not a curse, it is a grudge. Satan has a grudge against Sutter County. Grudge definition: a persistent feeling of ill will or resentment resulting from a past insult or injury.
A curse is defined as a solemn utterance intended to invoke a supernatural power to inflict harm or punishment on someone or something.
What is the grudge that Satan bears against Sutter and Yuba Counties? Satan wants your children! He wants to rob your life at a young age. He wants youth to believe there is nothing here for them.
Jesus began His ministry in an area where there was a grudge—in Capernaum. The people of that area were looked down on. When Israel and Judah split, Jeroboam set up a rival religion, forbidding his adherents from going to the temple. Even when the nation was united, the farther one got from Jerusalem, the harder it was to keep the temple practices, and the quicker they went astray. Thus it was an area of spiritual darkness. Their sin made it even darker. The region was infiltrated with gentiles who had come to the fertile ground during and after the exile to grow crops and engage in industry. Thus, the Jews lived alongside the gentiles, which made them second class citizens in the eyes of their Judean brothers, who saw themselves as purer because they were close to the holy city.
These were the reasons in the natural for the grudge but the real reason was that it was a land of promise. This is where the Messiah would start His miracle ministry.
Isaiah 9:1 “Nevertheless the gloom will not be upon her who is distressed, As when at first He lightly esteemed The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, And afterward more heavily oppressed her,
By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, In Galilee of the Gentiles. 2 The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death,
Upon them a light has shined.”
When our Lord Jesus began to appear as a prophet, and to preach the gospel in the land of Zebulun and Naphtali, and in Galilee of the Gentiles this promise was fulfilled. Satan had a grudge against their destiny. That is why Satan has a grudge against Yuba City and Marysville. He fears the prophecies of revival that will be fulfilled here.”
I had to stop. The people were ready to be saved. When I asked them to come to Christ the response was immediate and effortless.
The first harvest filled the front. We had no way of knowing that each night the harvest was going to multiply. The harvest in Yuba City is a resounding slap in the face to experts who say American Youth want nothing to do with Christianity.
In this tent cliches die and pundits are proven wrong. Modern humanity is not different than the crowds that were by the shores of Galilee. Seeing the miracles cut them to the heart. People of all ages pour forward to be saved.
Many scoffed at the idea that we would prove God was real. God was not intimidated. He enveloped me in His anointing and directed me to a young man on my right. My orders were to tell him the following: “You have suffered a devastating loss. It shattered your faith in God. It made you physically ill and has placed a dark cloud over your life.” The young man broke before God and received his miracle. This young man had been in a terrible accident that killed his girlfriend.
Friday night! The temperature at 7 PM is 106 degrees and we are in a tent. So many thought that the scorching heat would kill our attendance and instead it is the biggest night and the greatest harvest.
What healings have been reported so far? You name it. Cancer, diabetes, emphysema, and a host of life threatening diseases have vanished before the mighty hand of God. Stay tuned for more!
