Emboldened by overstated victories, and the madness of the media, the Democrat party will persecute the church with abandon.  I believe we’ll see it almost immediately. The mood—the one that pleases people when Christians are harassed and blamed, is upon us.  I am warning you it’s about to spike, and the mindless ferocity of it will surprise you.

A moment like this is recorded in the Book of Acts: Acts 12:1-3, “Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. 2 Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3 And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter also.”

As I prayed, I experienced colliding emotions of dread and excitement.  The Holy Spirit made it clear that persecution against Christians is going to spike in the United States in the next few months.  He also made it clear that this would touch off a towering flow of miracles of healing.

Satan wants America destroyed.   It is the grand prize.  With America gone, the devil can unleash worldwide devastation.   But the global tyranny that he craves cannot happen until the American firewall is removed.

He also knows that he can only destroy America from within.  Somehow, he must pit us against each other. 

The only deterrent to civil war at this point is Christianity.  Notice that I do not say the church, I say Christianity.  The church is sidelined by equal parts division and denial.  The Christianity seeping out despite religion is the only thing protecting us.

The devil’s weapon of choice is hate.  He must foment hate.  Today, that hate is coming from the very people claiming to be fighting hate: secular progressives, and social justice warriors.  You have seen how the things that were once loving, moral and trustworthy, including marriage, manhood, military service, freedom of speech, witnessing, the Bible and, yes, freedom itself, are now hateful.


God has been lovingly warning the American Church.  He has repeatedly ordered the church to stand as one against immorality, but she has flatly refused.  God now reserves the right to use persecution to wake up the church and spare the nation.

Is there any good news in this?  There is much good news, but only for a certain group.  The core of Christians who refuse to side with the compromised church, and who are seeking Jesus, will be protected and used mightily.  Persecution will backfire!

The boomerang effect is seen in ancient Israel.  Exodus 1:12 says “But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites.”

After Herod arrested Peter, an angel appeared and brought him out.  This miracle ignited the church.  I am telling you what the Holy Spirit has told me.  Every vessel that seeks God right now will receive greater power and greater miracles.

Call it legend, call me crazy, but I know that this wave of persecution is here.  We can turn it all around.  We can regain lost ground.  Those who disobey God cannot escape this misery and those who obey God will granted special grace and increased supernatural power.

Paul wrote to a worried Philippian church to tell them about the shock outcome of his imprisonment.  It serves as a promise to us of what is about to happen as a result of persecution in America.

Philippians 1:12 “And I want you to know this, dear brothers: Everything that has happened to me here has been a great boost in getting out the Good News concerning Christ. 13 For everyone around here, including all the soldiers over at the barracks, knows that I am in chains simply because I am a Christian. 14 And because of my imprisonment, many of the Christians here seem to have lost their fear of chains! Somehow my patience has encouraged them, and they have become more and more bold in telling others about Christ.”

Writing about the book of Acts Church Matthew Henry said this:  “The persecution that was designed to extirpate the church was by the overruling providence of God made an occasion of the enlargement of it. Christ had said, I am come to send fire on the earth; and they thought, by scattering those who were kindled with that fire, to have put it out, but instead of this they did but help to spread it.” Amen!

  2. Mario, ” your old men dream dreams,” so now I know how God sees me! Dream 2 nights ago: 4 things God will do with desperate seekers and shakers, who want to see Holy Ghost Revival. 1. God will “Position” us. Acts 27, Paul’s worst life threatening disaster positioned him for his destiny. We may be in a storm, broken, shattered, devastated by personal trials and shipwrecks. But God is healing, working, and positioning us for our destiny. 2. God will “Empower” us. He needs no more professional preachers. He needs men and womem full of the Holy Ghost, Holy Fire, Holy Indignation, and Fiery Hatred of Hell and what Hell is doing to mankind. Folks of truth, who have had enough, who have prayed up, armored up, and who will storm the gates of hell on a rescue mission. NO ONE GOES UNDER HIS COMMAND UNTIL EMPOWERED! He needs no more armed only in flesh. Tarry until endued with power from on high. 3. God will “Place” us. Many who have said, “God, where do I go, what do I do, what is your will for me, how can I be useful to you” will find sudden clarity, opportunity, anointing, and see 30, 60, 100 fold fruit in their divine placement. No more blurry vision, no more men seen as trees walking, we see them clearly, we see what they are up against, everything is clear now, and so we fight. 4. God will “Pour” us. The Living Water will flow out of us with miracles, signs, wonders, salvations, lives will be changed, refreshed, encouraged, and restored as God pours the anointing and power of His Spirit through us to rescue the lost and hurting for Christ. (An empty vessel contains nothing to pour.) In the dream God stressed this: DO NOT TRY FIGHTING AT THE GATES OF HELL UNTIL YOU GET NUMBER 2 RIGHT. WE WILL BE STUCK, UNFULFILLED, EMPTY, AND FRUSTRATED AT WHY THINGS SEEM TO BE AT A STANDSTILL. HE WILL NOT ADVANCE YOU WITHOUT EMPOWERMENT. (Read Joshua 7) Love and power to you all, for His glory.

  3. You are right brother! Today’s church is turning more and more away from God and is doing its own thing regardless of what God says in His word. But the time is rapidly approaching to where every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus IS Lord! Then those that refuses to acknowledge that God is is control will be sorry but then it will be too late!We must pray that these so called Christians will see their sin and return to God!

  4. I see it coming think 2019 is going to be a very unusual year good for the Christian but scary for the others

  5. The churches finest hours are in the furnace of affliction. I have been hearing much the same for awhile now. Darkness, violence, persecution. Stand strong children of God, stand strong.!

    God greatest warriors battle on their knees.

  6. I’ve been interceding for California for 3 decades now. God has shown me alot. The enemy wants to turn California into the “garbage state”. This is because God has called us the Golden State. It’s rooted in politics but it’s a spiritual battle! This state supposedly elected Gov. Newsom but I believe (and God allowed it) that the polls were rigged. This is our Lord’s plan. We’ve been complacent too long in this state. The church has not laid hold of the promise for California. Holy Spirit showed me many years ago that the Spirit of God will be poured out here in such a measure that the world’s eye will be upon us in a new way. Right now the eye of the world is watching the demonic products of Hollywood. God calls it “Holy-wood”. When the nephew of Nancy Pelosi (who is Newsom), Kamala Harris, Dianne Feinstein, Adam Schiff and Maxine Waters, who all are elected officials from our state come out and tell us what is really on their minds for our future and I believe this is happening right now, there will be an outcry from good and righteous people, not just Christians, not just Californians but people with a moral compass and disciplined standards for what’s legal and what’s illegal all over our nation. We have spawned here a group of representatives that are so demonically driven that’s is shocking! This just tells me that the devil will overplay his hand. We will stand up and this crusade down the main artery of California (route 99) is the right thing to do according to God. Thank you Mario Murillo for your courage and your devotion to Christ. I am 71, soon to be 72, but I love this state and my country and I will fight alongside of you and your mandate if not just in prayer, if you make it to Orange County I would like to participate. Interceding, fasting and praying for you and your teams. In Jesus’ mighty and holy name.
