President Trump was right to give Gavin Newsom an ultimatum. The people of California are suffering from a plague of addictions, homelessness, and lawlessness that has reached critical mass. However, God is also issuing a wake- up call to the Golden State. He is shaking, purifying and rebuilding. God-haters beware! You who have your hearts set on a fully secular, socialist state that has no place for the church of the Lord Jesus Christ, know this: God is even now rolling up His sleeves to do a work—a work of extremes.
This impending act of God will consist of two things: joy and terror. Watch as those who shake their fists at God find themselves fighting against God—and losing that fight! I say to you: God will take away your sleep. He will remove your arrogance. He will defeat your most trusted weapons. He will take down your secret tactics. He will turn the tide of public opinion against you.
These are the days of Elijah! This is California’s reckoning with truth and righteousness. God has surveyed the cities. He has heard and heeded the cries of His intercessors, and God has had enough of what they are doing to our children.
The roar of the words of the Psalmist is heard on high: “It is time for You to act, O God, for they have regarded Your word as void.” (Psalm 119:126)
It is only one tent, but what has happened under this tent in 2019 matters very much. Yes, the sick have been healed. Yes, the lost have charged into the Kingdom. But, in addition, a mighty army has formed. I have looked into their eyes and I have seen the fire of God blazing in them.
They are a new breed of believer—the kind that multiplies faster than anyone can know, and who will reach out with power like no Christians before them. They are ready. They are coming. And, they will multiply in numbers unseen since the days of Azusa Street and the Jesus Movement.
God’s wake up call to the God-haters is simple: You have held sway over California for too long and your days are numbered, and your agenda is coming to an end!
But God’s wake-up call to the church in California is even greater.
God is saying to every pastor in the state: “Stand your ground. Stay on message. Hold on, for fire is about to fall on the smaller churches, the hungry churches.”
Though you be not many in size, His watchword to you is: “STAY!” Don’t give the cities away. Don’t sell out and move to a “safer” state.
You are not just to stay, but to make signs and wonders your weapon to stem the tide of evil. Let miracles flow. Preach a pure message—a message that God can crown with miracles.
Not only do we believe we should stand our ground, but as you can see from the map, we are investing more than ever in California. We are going to hold 5 tent crusades in 2020. We don’t want demons to feel at home here anymore. We are declaring that they are to pack up and move out! This is your eviction notice!
Acts 14:3 says, “Therefore they stayed there a long time, boldly in the Lord, Who was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.”
God is saying: Pray the Lord of the Harvest. Matthew 9:37 Then (Jesus) 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 laborers into His harvest.”
Each night, in every city we have visited, the crowd was amazed to see the river of souls flowing to Christ. It is no accident! We sent out workers. We went into the nests of evil to extract treasures out of the darkness. In 2020 we will double the number of workers—but the church still needs to be jolted awake.
The wake-up call that California’s Celebrity-Christians need is clear: God is not fascinated by your programs or your slick presentations. He is trying to save and deliver millions here who currently writhe in untold misery. Many believers who live here seem think this is someone else’s job. That is why we lost the state in the first place: because we thought someone else was going to do that job.
People mean well when they walk up to me and say, “Mario, you are doing a good work.” I reply, “No, I am not doing a good work…I am doing the work.” This work is OUR work. It is the real work of the church. Everything else is just distraction—something we made up and called it the work.
The Lord of the harvest is sending out laborers into His harvest. It is time for every believer to arise, wake up, and find their place in this supernatural work in California. The evil that is being worshiped here cannot continue indefinitely. At some point it will implode. Whatever we are going to do to touch California, we must do now. Pray, and obey the voice of God if He directs you to come and work beside us. WELCOME TO THE WAR.
Please note: Our first event will be two days of miracles in Chico, CA, beginning on Sunday, January 26th and ending on Monday, January 27th. These meetings are designed to give the city of Chico a foretaste of what God will do in the Tent. They will be Nights of Miracles! Please, invite someone who needs to find salvation in Christ or who needs a healing miracle!
