SOMETHING HAS CHANGED
By Mario Murillo
Last night in Yuba City we saw great miracles and a great harvest but something else happened…a change, a big change and it is taking place in many parts of America.
Something has changed in America—it is a massive change. Before I tell you what it is, I must take you back to one night 600 years before Christ was born. That was when this exact same change happened before. That was the night that Nebuchadnezzar was scared out of his wits.
No one could imagine anything that could scare Nebuchadnezzar. He was not only the most powerful man on earth but one of the most powerful in all of history. Yet, on this night he had a dream that terrified him so completely—he lost his power to sleep, eat and even think.
His personal panic spread to all of Babylon. The every magician, seer and mystic was summoned. Read the following verses and see if you can find the colossal change.
Daniel 2: 4 Then the Chaldeans spoke to the king in Aramaic, “O king, live forever! Tell your servants the dream, and we will give the interpretation.” 5 The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, “My decision is firm: if you do not make known the dream to me, and its interpretation, you shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made an ash heap.6 However, if you tell the dream and its interpretation, you shall receive from me gifts, rewards, and great honor. Therefore tell me the dream and its interpretation.”
Do you see it? Do you see the rule change? These spiritual advisors had long enjoyed the King’s favor. The King had enriched them for their flattering prophecies. Now the king needed a real answer. Fear had altered the royal landscape.
The mystics were stunned and made a revealing comment in verse 10: “The Chaldeans answered the king, and said, “There is not a man on earth who can tell the king’s matter; therefore no king, lord, or ruler has ever asked such things of any magician, astrologer, or Chaldean.” This had never happened before. Demanding that they tell him (the King) what he dreamed totally blew their cover and they knew it. They were now irrelevant. They had no real power.
Now Daniel steps into the vacuum displaying courage as great as his night in the lion’s den: Verse 16 So Daniel went in and asked the king to give him time, that he might tell the king the interpretation. 17 Then Daniel went to his house, and made the decision known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions, 18 that they might seek mercies from the God of heaven concerning this secret, so that Daniel and his companions might not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. 19 Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. So Daniel blessed the God of heaven.
Daniel was moved to the front of the line. He stood before the baffled and anxious king with great power. A politically incorrect religion rose from the ashes. He told the king the dream and its interpretation.
The death of Prince the musician is a terrible tragedy. He might be alive if there was a Daniel in his life. Prince enjoyed vast adulation. He had great power, wealth and honor. None of that stopped fear from gripping him. He suffered major stage fright and used drugs to face his audiences. When he suffered severe pain from years of dancing he combined drugs for pain and anxiety. No one was there to interpret his nightmare.
What happened to Prince is happening to millions of Americans in different ways. The national nightmare is so great that heroin addiction has increased 51% in just 24 months. The anger you see
Not long ago witnessing was a hate crime. You could talk about mysticism, Islam and even Satanism but the Gospel was hate speech. The social justice warriors saw to it that any and every reference to the Bible and Jesus Christ would be censured as homophobic, sexist, transphobic and racist.
However, the nightmare is changing the rules again! Hollywood stars like Sylvester Stallone, Tim Allen and others openly admit that they have cried out to Christ and received life and do not care who knows it or what it would do to their career.
It will soon get so real that ministers who hold back the powerful themes of the Gospel will look ridiculous. Society is saying ENOUGH! ENOUGH, they say, “of telling us not to pray, not to believe and not to accept the deity of Jesus.”
The masses are demanding a potent—direct, unapologetic Gospel. Like Daniel in the Bible—just when it seemed that truth was banned the heart of the culture—an earthquake has come to open the prison doors and given a platform for anyone who will preach the truth wholeheartedly in the love and power of the Holy Spirit.
Tonight we will go to greater and unknown heights of the Glory of God! Tonight and all three nights, Chris Burns will ignite worship and set the stage for signs and wonders.
Why you should come if you are a Christian who yearns for revival in Northern California. The impact of these nights does not end with just healing miracles. An army of love and light is forming from many churches in the area who are seeking an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It is our deepest wish and expectation that the power of these nights will flow out to the entire Northern California area.
It all adds up to a simple conclusion: These are nights you do not want to miss.
