In Las Vegas God killed a lie about American youth
By Mario Murillo
We invaded Las Vegas. It would never have happened without our partners. God used you to send us to sin city! I cannot overstate the strategic power of the war chest that you have helped us build.
The building was jammed. The miracles of healing came effortlessly. We can’t remember when the presence of God to heal was this widespread in a meeting.
In Las Vegas we saw God kill a lie. The media is painting a picture of American youth that is a total fabrication. Last night we saw the total opposite of what they say. Youth crying out for Jesus to set them free and use them—a militancy for Christ is rising.
There is so much more good news out of Las Vegas but it must wait because I have a word from the Lord for you. It is white hot in my soul. I will damage myself if I do not express it.
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS ROARING: IGNORE THE OUTWARD APPEARANCE. DO NOT MISS THE HARVEST OF AMERICA’S YOUTH!
Only once before have I been hit so hard with this mandate. Jesus revealed the harvest at the University of California at Berkeley. That campus was an impenetrable prison of atheism. God burned it in my soul to ignore the outward appearance and press on. There was a harvest hidden in plain sight. Because I obeyed and stayed the course thousands were saved.
Now the media has built a new prison for our youth. They desperately push the lie of a self-absorbed, easily offended, anti-God generation. The media has to keep this lie alive or they will lose control of a generation.
We know accurate reporting is dead in America. The media is a mouthpiece of the “social justice” movement. Political correctness is their drug to keep the masses in line. If they truly wanted equality and justice, they would not be pathological liars.
American youth are done with Christ? We know better. We are in the trenches with them. We see them sobbing, repenting and crying out to Jesus for identity, destiny and anointing.
Get them away from their demonic college professors and the suffocating peer pressure and they melt before the love and power of God—not just in Vegas—but in every city.
Put your ear to the ground. You can hear something coming…the distant rolling thunder of a generation waking up to Christ.
A harvest of young souls is coming just in time. What a disaster if we miss it!
Here are the things that the Holy Spirit is roaring. He is emphatically ordering us to do these the following things to bring in the harvest.
- Ignore the appearance and be true to the message: The best messengers have always been faithful to their message. Proverbs 25:13 Says, “Like the cold of snow in time of harvest, is a faithful messenger to those who send him, for he refreshes the soul of his masters.” God is refreshed when His servants are true to his message.
Resist the pressure to alter or sidestep the Gospel. Mark Dever said, “People often try to improve the gospel, but in “improving” it, they always end up losing it. This gospel we have received is itself full and lacks nothing. Thus, to add to it is only to detract from it—and from God’s glory.”
The Holy Spirit compels us preach, the Cross, the Blood, Heaven and Hell. These themes convict lost souls. Billy Graham was accused of preaching simple sermons. Over and over he’d say “the Bible says.” Yet, millions came forward and he shattered attendance records all over the world. Instead of dazzling oratory, he built sermons the Holy Spirit could use.
- Ignore the appearance and embrace a fresh approach. The enemy we face is sophisticated, and well-funded. We must look to God for a fresh approach. We must saturate our plans in prayer. We must apply solutions from the Holy Spirit. The ideas must and will come from Him.
While our message does not change our method will and must change. We cannot change what we say but we must change how we say it.
We must take technology captive and bring it into the subjection of Christ. Social media is the new agora—the new market place. It is will be the site of miracles.
We must constantly update our technology and stay current with the changes going on in cyberspace and the youth culture.
- Ignore the appearance and let signs and wonders flow.
Why offer a partial cure? Why not prove the message? The supernatural must be presented boldly. We should not fear rejection. The outward appearance tells us they will mock us. That appearance is wrong! Ironically, the supernatural has always been a part of youth culture. They are pre-wired to miracles.
We bring the Kingdom of God to the youth culture—not just words. Jesus said, “But if I cast out demons with the finger of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you” -Luke 11:20.
The 1960’s terrified parents and the nation. The general consensus was that we had lost an entire generation to drugs and free love. Look Magazine had a strange premonition. They said this: “If there is a solution for our youth it must spring up from among themselves.”
Out of nowhere and among themselves came the Jesus Movement. At first, pastors tried to get the influx of youth to fit the church mold. Thank God they woke up and embraced the miracles among the young. 25 million Americans were swept into the Kingdom.
God has always told youth what He is about to do. Young people have always been God’s catalyst to awakenings. Now, He is saying the most explosive things He has ever said to youth. He is offering them power He has never offered before.
By ignoring conventional wisdom and the outward appearance this ministry has stayed the course and is reaping the results. Big miracles are ahead and the best is yet to come.
