WHEN SATAN COMES RIGHT AT YOU

Right now Mario Murillo Ministries is under the worst satanic attack we have ever known. Yet I almost relish it! How is that possible?

Facebook censors us. Witches continue to harass us. Drug gangs don’t like us taking away their customers and leading their prostitutes to Jesus.  The Leftist media is writing scandalous articles against us. Hackers are trying to sabotage us.  False preachers—under the influence of the spirit of antichrist—condemn our crusades. And the worst is personal betrayal. Yet, I am so excited!

Is Satan viciously attacking you? You can’t just lay there and take it.  Now is the time for decisive action against the attacks of Satan against your body, your emotions, and your family.  I intend to put a mighty weapon into your hand.

The weapon is a gift from the time I was fighting my way back from the most grueling health issue of my life.  God made me take a class on how to turn an attack from Satan, into an attack on Satan. In other words, the Holy Spirit showed me how to boomerang the attacks of the enemy.

Being bedridden was a perfect torment for me.  In the dark of night, Satan tried to torture me with thoughts of paralysis and even death. Jesus showed me my choice. I could give in and be devastated, or I could follow Him into a victorious counter-attack. Learn a lesson from my ordeal−and from my victory!  Here are the truths:

Satan attacks you because he fears you.  You must never condemn yourself for being under attack, as if you did something wrong—it’s actually because you did something right. If you weren’t dangerous, he would leave you alone. It helps you to turn the tables on the enemy when you see all the damage your life is doing to the devil.

Satan’s attacks are often impulsive and repetitious.  This shows us that he never learns from his mistakes. He reacts and falls into his own trap.  He forgets how it arouses the anger of God our Father when the enemy touches one of His children.  Satan’s life story is a cycle of attacks that backfire.

That is not a comfort when you are facing the cruelest attack ever.  I am certainly not going to trivialize suffering and loss.  Believe me, I have a deep respect for the havoc he can raise, and the pain he can cause.

Satan tests your belief in the victory Jesus won. You must enforce the victory of the Cross on Satan!

By following the Holy Spirit’s instructions, we can make the devil’s attack on us an attack on him.   The Message version of the Bible has a good rendering of Philippians 1: 12 “I want to report to you, friends, that my imprisonment here has had the opposite of its intended effect. Instead of being squelched, the Message has actually prospered.”  Look again at this phrase: “the opposite of its intended effect.”  How can that mean anything but that the attack on Paul turned into an attack on Satan?

I told you that I rejoice, and here Paul is saying it also in 2 Corinthians 12:9, “And He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

When that prison door slammed behind Paul, it was a dark moment.  He had no idea how long he would suffer.  He didn’t know if he’d ever get out alive.  Knowing Paul’s heart, his greatest agony was watching this ordeal shut down his ministry.

You can well imagine what images ran through my mind when we had to stop our tent meetings, and so many other things we were doing.

I gathered up all of my strength, pointed at Satan and rebuked Him.  I said, “This attack is now an attack on you!”  I confessed that God now owned the situation.  I declared that I was being healed, no matter what my circumstances said.

Next, I confessed to God that my season of being healed—no matter how long it took—would be a tool of the Holy Spirit for growth, strength, and a greater fighting spirit.  I still enjoy that fighting tenacity today.

But it was the last lesson I learned that was the most significant.  I learned to seek my Father for no other reason than that He is my Father.   I had no idea how much of my past praying was dominated by requests for greater power, or more provision, or for revival.  These were all noble requests, but now, in the Presence that flooded my room, they seemed so secondary.   Being near to Him meant everything.

Today, I live in a level of trust, power, and clarity I never would have gained had I not gone through this great test.

The lessons I learned in the darkest season of my life will cost the devil dearly every time he attacks me, for the rest of my life. He will pay, for the rest of my life.  That is why I say with Paul…”I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.”  -Romans 8:18.

Join me in learning to turn every attack of the enemy, into a time of growing stronger in the Holy Spirit!

  1. Thanks Mario I need that. The attacks just will not stopped. But having an understand help. I was thinking God is mad at me or I did something wrong. Your blog helped to put it back into perspective.

    1. I felt the same way. We haven’t disappointed God, quite the contrary. We are valuable to the body of Christ and satan is on a mission to thwart us and muffle our testimony of the goodness of God and the need for the atonement of sin. God is allowing these trouble to shape us into the image of Christ and to show the enemy we will serve God in the valley as well as on the mountain top. Run with victory. The finish line is just up ahead.

  2. God bless you Mario ! You and all of us are bathed in the light and the power of our Father , our Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit !

  3. Thank you servant of the Most High God!!! I can relate to your story to some degree. When you have a call on your life the enemy does not like it. We just keep on going forward in our call. The Lord is working on our behalf and will cause the situation to be turned to His Glory!!!! God Bless You and protect you and your work for His Kingdom!!!!!

  4. So true Mario: that everything is secondary to being close to Jesus. He is our life and our goal. He is our Beloved. Thanks for sharing your experiences. I know of a lady evangelist who says she always gives satan a good kick before he comes near her; she has been praying 5 hours a day most days of her life since 17 and is 92 now, she still heals the sick, goes out soul-winning (has won thousands possibly – through door to door evangelism) and teaching/preaching in her church. I have been knocked down and dragged out by the devil, I know that it is either fight or die. God bless you. Linda

  5. So shall they fear The name of the LORD from the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him.
    Isaiah 59:19
    🤗

  6. Very inspiring word that has given me a boost today!! Thankyou Mario! We definitely have a kindred spirit!

  7. Many are now beganing to take Luke 10:19 seriously as there weapon of warfare. Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
    When we take this scripture seriously and act it out in the physical realm by realizing what happens in the physical also happens in the spiritual there is an instant shift in the spiritual realm.
    Act it out by realizing serpents and scorpions are symbolic of demons and devils.
    Amaigin a few small serpent and scorpions on the floor, then began to tread upon them (stomping) on them while rebuking and binding satan openly and boldly, this really puts demons to flight, quickly and noticeably.
    Using our spiritual power according according th the Holy Bible always prevails. It may sound radical although it works, who cares.
    The Lord gave me this revalation years ago. He had me Write this scripture on 3×5 cards and go to an outdoor garthing of 50k belivers in Nashville. He instructed me to who he wanted these cards given to, I obayed.
    We cant be gentlel with the devil, we must stomp our feet and clap our hands together loudly and with a loud stern voice command the devil and Demons to flee In The Name of Jesus, it works surprisingly well, Glory to God…

  8. Wow thank you Mario 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼. This, for me, is the most important and powerful message I have heard 💯💥🎯

  9. I think one of the greatest mistakes Christians make whether for ministry needs or for healing is “You have need of Patience-Endurance after you have done the will of God” So many give up and don’t stand and endure.* Submit yourselves to God*, resist the devil and he will flee. I have thousands of people who don’t like me over the years witnessing at SBCC and UCSB. So what. If you submit yourself to God and resist the devil whether for healing or from people not liking you. *You can be in the presence of the Lord* *and have perfect peace. * The other day I had a demon possessed women rant and rave at my table at SBCC and call me names etc. and the anointing and presence I have with Jesus Christ and my guardian Angel next to me. I just laughed and laughed and then she really got mad. Of course if she got violent towards me or someone else I would have rebuked in Jesus Christ’s name the devil out of her. A security guard apologized to me for the incident and took her away. I hate the devil and I just laugh at him. God bless William Laser

  10. So encouraged by this. Thank you Mario. May God richly bless you, your family, your ministry and your team (I should say “our” team, we’re all in this together)… may He continue to bless you/us with every spiritual blessing under the heavenlies, and moreover, may we take to heart the truth of that and walk in full confidence of our inheritance. To God be the glory! I hope to be at one of these tent meetings soon.

  11. Dear Mario….Each new message from you is clearly anointed by the Holy Spirit. Thank you for being an incredibly faithful servant of our most high God!

  12. It all makes sense. The attacks are great and sometimes I feel frustrated and want to fall back. But I join you in saying that the enemy is the loser and I am the victor through Christ. I wait upon him and only he can deliver us or sit with us throughout the struggles and attacks that we face. I want to be, as Paul and say that the suffering of the present age is nothing compared to his glory. Yet, I know that will be tested, as well. Really there is no other choice in my mind than to draw closer to my Lord. On another note: we were at one of your meetings in Las Vegas and my daughter, who was 11 at the time, mentioned that she had never experienced the presence of the Lord as powerful as that time. The reality of the Lord stayed with her and that moment has pulled her through struggles. Amen.

  13. Thank you Pastor, you inspire me not to ever give up! The Blood of Christ forever cover you with Victory for His glory!

  14. Mario,

    *Blessings on all God has called you to.*

    Thank you for serving and ministering for so many years. My husband and I watched your ministry years ago on TBN and we grew so much, raised our family under Pastor John Stocker, Resurrection Fellowship which you came and spoke back in the 90s I believe. Kids are grown and serving God and seeking Him diligently.

    Thank you again for the message and the ministry you are continuing. I am blessed by your emails/blog and your continuing call to seeking and serving God and submitting to His Word and ways.

    Blessings,

  15. Thank you Mario for that Word; yes , I’ve have been fighting his attacks now for 2 years, and will not go the worlds way for the remedy 👏🙏👍. I want my needs met the Lords way or no way; His way is “calling those things that are not as though they are” and “walking by faith and not by sight” and Mark 11:23,24 is true every time. So thank you again for your stand, and resisting the devil, and yes, he will flee from us. Glory to God.

  16. I’ve learned to view attacks from the enemy as “resistance training.” Just like using the resistance machines as the gym are hard while you’re doing the exercises, it’s how you build muscles and get stronger.

  17. Attacks can be devastating and life altering. Satan wants to sift us and cause our faith to fail. Thank God for his unfailing Hand. And after attack, there can be greater effectiveness in ministry, and an entering into a time of supernatural “rest.” (Still fighting the good fight of faith, but kept by God in a season of refreshment and renewal.) Prayers for great harvest in California! Prayers for all faithful pastors who may feel discouraged: cast your care upon Him, for He careth for you. This is His fight!

  18. This post has been my lifeline today. Thank you so much! I will enforce what God wants for my life and I will never be the same. I have been following your posts and praying for your ministries and for what God is doing in California. Please come pitch a tent in North Carolina.

  19. Thank you so much for these words of power and encouragement! I feel chains breaking off of my mind and body every time I read what you have to say or hear you preach! I will keep your ministry and family in my prayers! I really hope that one day you will come to Griffin Ga!!

  20. I was there the First night. And yes you can feel the attacks. I am praying for Brother Mario. I have much respect for what you are doing as the Lord leads you to do so. It is clear some are not supportive. Yet God has place Brother Mario in the heart of Down Town Stockton. Lord Willing Tonight Brother Mario you are going to need prayer warriors. This is payday for many and the drugs will be flowing heavily in this area tonight as will the gangs. I believe the Lord has already told you that. And you have prepared accordingly. Your Message the first night, I would like to remind you of what 1Kings 19:10 says :

    Elijah said, ” I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.”

    The Lord said to Elijah

    “Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.”

    7000 !!!!!! Mario, you are not alone those same ministers you spoke about who goes to Hospital’ s

    are praying and being used. We at FCC are praying for you and Stockton. God Bless.

  21. This is helpful. The history of those attacks from the demons that have jumped on me (and having each event end up recoiling back upon themselves) have occurred the most times while in bed about to fall asleep. Just a short while earlier, for instance, I have had a successful and inspiring session of prayer in my living room, pacing back and forth and touching on points the Holy Spirit leads me to pray about. Because of this habit of intercession and supplication, over time, a stronghold in the Spirit was established at my house by the lake. Thusly, the Evil One assigned a group of devils to attack and try to wear me out. They would run straight to my bedroom and jump on me, and I would have to wrestle them off of me, and then give some strong verbal commands to be bound and depart. I often wondered why the angel would observe all this and not grab the creature and break its neck! I later understood all this was part of my training to rule and reign in the spirit realm. As I gained strength through my experiences with evil spirits I soon realized that what I was focusing on the most was outpourings of the Holy Spirit. And praying for the final fulfillment of Joel’s Prophecy was right at the top of satan’s most hated words in the Bible. And what it means for him causes a rage like no other. And so now Mario, we are seasoned warriors who see the big picture of God’s Master Plan. And we carry on, knowing the outcome is certain through each battle of this war. “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds…” 2 Cor. 10:4.

  22. Me too Bro. Mario!!! I just went through an attack of the enemy and landed in the hospital; he is trying to land disease on my body but I’m not letting him get away with it and I have come out of this attack stronger, more resilient and determined than ever and he will wish he never touched my life!! That is how I feel so I know that you are not being cocky about it and victory in any area tastes good when you know you have it in Christ Jesus!!! We fight on for there is a cause to fight for and “from” victory, not trying to get it……….Hallelujah!!!

    1. Hi cactusflower18,
      I just got your comment on my inbox & wanted to share with you…YES I understand, for our victory is already won in Christ Jesus due to the blood of His Cross, (and By His stripes we are healed).
      I would also add given your testimony of health struggle, That for going on 4 months now, I’ve been battling the evil forces of this present darkness because of how HARD they hit my poor Brother back in March 2019.
      3 weeks after his 60th B-day he had an extensive stroke and we’ve been fighting back in the stroke aftermath ever since. He lost his ability to even speak or swallow for several weeks, they said he might never walk again or use his right arm, BUT God…now he’s walking with a walker, and doing everything else medical science was skeptical about. Here’s a suggestion that may help you. During this time and pretty much all my Christian life I have found that “pleading the blood of Jesus” over any overt attack from darkness and the enemy forces, (particularly health attacks) COVERS the area that is needed, because ‘the POWER is in THE blood!’
      Sincerely sent from another cactus flower,
      Carolina

      1. Thank you Carolina for sharing; I’m doing much better and an attack came to my Brother too; he had heart surgery but is doing great thanks to prayers and fighting the good fight of faith-in the Blood of Jesus-Amen! I’m standing in my and his healing now!!!
