PREPARING

Not only is this the worst moral condition I have seen, it is the worst in American history.   The facts about American youth: never has church attendance been this low—never have so many claimed to be atheists—never have they been this angry with churches—never have we seen such derision and hostility toward the teachings of Christ.  Therefore, this is the perfect time for a youth awakening.  How can this be?

Reason number one: The hurricane effect.  Scientists predict hurricanes by measuring a very unhurricane looking condition—they detect low air pressure over the ocean.  In other words, they know violent air is coming because the air is so nonviolent.   Nature always rushes to fill a vacuum.

Universities are sowing the seeds of revival by spiritually starving students.  They are not creating lifelong atheists…they are creating a vacuum.  The push to invalidate the Gospel will not remove the need of the human soul.  In fact, suppression of spiritual desires can make those desires overwhelming.

Reason number two: The Saul of Tarsus effect.  How can we be near to an awakening when so many of our youth are going to extremes with drugs, violence, and perversion?

Jesus spoke to Saul of Tarsus, “It is hard for you to kick against the goad.”  Saul got the message instantly.  He knew oxen kick against the sharp stick (goad) used to move them forward.  The goad was Saul’s destiny to become the Apostle Paul.  Saul was under deep conviction.  He knew his time as Saul was ending.  That turmoil drove his radical behavior.

Your child may be far from God and acting out great sin and anger, but it could be a sign—they’re on their own road to Damascus.  They are reeling with the feeling of a coming act of God.

Reason number three: Satan always overplays his hand.  If Lucifer truly wanted to fill hell, you’d think he’d make everyone rich and content.  Instead, he grinds people.  He makes them miserable and plunges them into despair.  He drives his victims to cry out to God for deliverance.  Satan’s hatred for mankind derails his tactics.

Reason number four: It’s God’s time.  Revivals do not begin in times of enlightened morality and peace.  They come when humanity writhes in the depths of depravity.  They come to those most cruelly vexed by the culture.  The brunt of cultural change always falls on the backs of youth.  Psalm 119:126 says, “It is time for you to act oh God for they have regarded your word as void.

I have given you four reasons a youth revival is coming, but now comes the crucial point of my letter to you: WE MUST BE PREPARED!  Carrying this inside information is not a blessing—it is an ominous responsibility.

We dare not speak in terms of business as usual.  Let me ask you, what should a ministry do if they know that in the coming days perhaps millions of youth will suddenly give in to a divine urge to serve Christ?  What would we do with such a miracle?  We should prepare.

One of Jesus’ greatest rebukes goes to the heart of this issue.  John 4:35 says, “Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!”

The correction begins with “do you not say.”   He is telling them they are wrong about what they say about the harvest.  “It’s 4 months away.”  Here’s our version:  An American youth revival is either impossible or off in some unknown future.

Next, He ordered them to lift up their eyes.  Look past the outward evil.  Look beyond the anti-God stage props of the culture.  The regular seasons of sowing and reaping have been overruled.  Amos 9:13 says, “‘Behold, the days are coming,’ says the Lord, ‘When the plowman shall overtake the reaper, And the treader of grapes him who sows seed; The mountains shall drip with sweet wine, And, all the hills shall flow with it.’”

The Modern English Translation says, “You will have such a harvest that you won’t be able to bring in all of your wheat before plowing time. You will have grapes left over from season to season; your fruitful vineyards will cover the mountains.”

Here’s my concluding message to you: DON’T SAY IT!  Don’t say we still need more time.  Don’t say some things have to change first.  Don’t say it can’t happen. Don’t say we can’t afford it!

I refuse to be caught unprepared for the harvest!  People close to me wonder about me.  Why do I drain our funds every month to buy equipment, train the army, invest in internet technology and furiously expand our reach?  Some are offended that I am continually challenging our partners.  I don’t care…I know a massive in-gathering is upon us—I refuse to be unprepared!

Jesus commanded them to look to the fields.  Church-bound Christians can’t see the fields.  Preachers consumed with survival programs can’t see the field.

Mario Murillo Ministries has not only seen the field—now, we live there. You know what we found on the field?  We found more souls who want Jesus than we have the resources to harvest.  We see the Holy Spirit pouring abundant and startling healings and conviction on young people.  In short, we are seeing the unreachable reached.

But I would rather risk suffering personal loss because I reached out than to endure the shame of sleeping through the harvest.   Proverbs 10:5 says, “He who gathers in summer is a wise son; He who sleeps in harvest is a son who causes shame.”

IT’S ALL ABOUT SOULS.  It’s about starting a youth revolution that will reverse the curse on America.  I don’t need to tell you how vicious the God-haters are right now.  I don’t need to remind you how extreme the left has gotten and how insane their ideas have become.  They are pushing America off a cliff.

Jesus was never vague about the crisis of winning souls.  Matthew 9:36 says, “But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.’”

It all points to one final question…how can we pray for workers to be sent without giving to send them?

I never ask you for a gift of love to win the lost through this blog.  I strive to keep my post very focused on exposing the wicked schemes of the left to erase the Judeo-Christian heritage that makes America great.
Every other part of Mario Murillo Ministries is focused on preaching the undiluted Gospel of Jesus Christ to youth who suffer in our inner cities.  Our tent is a mighty weapon!
I am breaking my usual habit and I am asking you to click on the link below to give to help me win souls.  Just as the doors are flying open, we hit a critical shortage.  There are at least 12 cities that we put on hold who are anxiously waiting for us right now.  I am grateful for anything you give but please be bold knowing the ground you are sowing in and the reward that will be returned to you.
Again, I am breaking my usual habit of not asking.  I am asking you to click on the link below to give to help me cease this amazing harvest.

  1. Hearts on Fire in Pigeon Forge TN in Nov. A wonderful time for the youth of this country. So many saved during this time every year.

  2. Prisoners and those in addiction recovery are coming to know Christ in unprecedented numbers. Our area just had a rally at a football stadium where hundreds of high school and middle school kids from different districts and cities made a commitment to Christ. (Local media did not even cover the event.) The harvest is truly ripe, and the Lord is bringing them in. Pray for revival, and pray for this critical moment in our nation as people literally choose between heaven and hell in this election.

    1. That is wonderful!! I love hearing that. It just proves that if these kinds of things are held, they WILL respond. Hearts on Fire brings in thousands every year, too. It is great to see so many young people that will at least have an open mind to even attend such gatherings. If the lost would just go with a friend, they will feel the presence of God and hopefully accept Jesus as their Savior. Tim Tebow is a speaker this year and I’m praying he can reach the unsaved that are there.

  3. It has long been known that there would come a time that nothing men could do would make a difference. We are now at that time. It allows G-D to move. I am expecting a massive spiritual revolution. Not led of men but by G-D.

    When things look the worse, when the adversary has overplayed his hand, then G-D can, and will, move.

  4. If he is right about the hurricane effect, then it will be similar to the situation just before The Jesus Revolution…

    However, I see another issue, that will surely brunt the revival, mediocre churches playing the latest and greatest air playable Christian Music, are inoculating youth with just enough Gospel to send them to a hell prepared for the devil and his angels…

    The Jesus Revolution had a simplicity and honesty that is simply not seen in today’s church culture…

    I am not as hopeful… But, we should be prepared anywhere because with Jehovah all things are possible

      1. Mario & Michael, I’ve known in The Spirit for a while now that the Jesus movement of the 60’s/70’s, was being ignited again in a sort of spiritual Renaissance. I’ve also believed (with a solid foundational peace in my soul) that Mario was just the anointed man of God to “kick start” this revolutionary revival. Mario, you did it before at a time when the hippie craze was at its peak. Many believers say that Christ’s return is not only imminent but very soon, therefore this is no time for a Jesus Renaissance…I look at things the way they are and ask why not? After all wouldn’t that be the ultimate preparation for HIS return?!
        Blessings…

    1. Carolina… I do not see anything in Prophecy that precludes a final revival before His coming. And, I have been asking for years now, “What if He Tarries?”

      There will come a day, that only the father knows, meaning that there is no Prophecy that tells us, when He will stand and say, “ENOUGH!” Go get them, Son.

      But, I also believe that the settings were close enough before the Jesus Movement, that that national revival may have forestalled such an event at that time.

      We do not know if we exercise 2 Chronicles 7:14 (as we did in the Jesus Movement) if we may gain another decade or two.

      But, I see a difference the youth of the hippie movement were not inoculated with religiosity as they are today, which means is the adults that will have to usher any revival that is to be.

      But, then with health & wealth, name it & claim it, and positive confession ruling so many churches, I fear that we are losing our chances by the minute.

      I wonder how many will wake up during the “Beginnings of Sorrows”, enough to take wings at His rapture. Because they sure aren’t awake now…

      even so, Maranatha!

      1. Well extrapolated Michael! Oh how selfishly I would welcome my King’s Rapture today…some might say that I’d only be thinking of myself and all who know HIM as Lord and King already. However if we have to wait a bit longer it seems good to me that a mighty wave of His Presence and reviving righteous Renaissance could break forth. As to those still asleep and functioning on auto pilot in the current church culture ‘May their beautiful Prince of Peace quickly kiss their cheek and awake that Sleeping Beauty’ 😴 amen.

  5. Amen no better time than right now, and people will give to robber’s who say what they want to hear, but not for the harvest and the field’s are white. God Bless

  6. With all my heart I pray for your success. Pray for my family too. Some of my kids live in Reno. Dee Beatty
