AMERICA ON FIRE

Officer Derek Chauvin put his knee on George Floyd’s neck, and kept it there for seven minutes. Mr. Floyd died begging for his life. This time there is no doubt. There is no back story. There is no excuse. It was murder, pure and simple. This is the flagrant abuse of power we fear most. The video will sear the conscience of America as long as there is an America.

Despair makes you set fire to your own neighborhood. Rage answers lawlessness with more lawlessness. Rioters have destroyed black-owned businesses—businesses the owners spent a life-time building.

The looters don’t want justice, they want free stuff—and many of them are white. Violent protesters aren’t honoring George Floyd’s memory. They are adding pain and grief—especially to the family George Floyd left behind.

 

Why is all of this happening to America? David Wilkerson didn’t just see New York City shutdown in one hour in his vision that many say predicted the virus. He also saw 1,000 fires burning in New York at one time. Are these riots all across America that next thing he saw?

I hated to feel it. I hated knowing I was right. I was haunted by a conviction that the pandemic and the collapse of our economy was not the end of our misery in 2020.  Too many of the videos that I saw which were produced by Christians, confirmed my deepest dread. Most ministries did not see any need to change their message—or discard the carnal and manmade doctrines and traditions. Repentance was hard to find, and the little there was, was mostly shallow rhetoric.

Christian music should have turned away from materialism and entertainment during the pandemic. Instead, the lead singer of a well-known worship band publicly announced he no longer believes in Jesus.

They were singing the same songs, speaking the same company-line, with little remorse, and even less soul searching. What should have been a catalyst to crying out to God for cleansing and mercy, became nothing more than a bothersome interruption. We held on to our sin, and rather than allowing God to remove it, many ministers just decided to ride it out.

We have refused correction. Jeremiah 5:3, “O Lord, are not Your eyes on the truth? You have stricken them, but they have not grieved; You have consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction. They have made their faces harder than rock; they have refused to return.”

The last thing the church should ever tell God is that the adversity He sent was not enough to change her. God did not send the virus, but He is God, and He can use anything to bring about His own plans. But I don’t believe it achieved His desired end—which was to wake up His church.

 

God warned Israel about rejecting His early dealings—warning that harsher measures could follow.

The Lord also spoke to me again, saying: Inasmuch as these people refused the waters of Shiloh that flow softly…now therefore, behold, the Lord brings up over them the waters of the River, strong and mighty—the king of Assyria and all his glory; he will go up over all his channels and go over all his banks (Isaiah 4:5-7).

If Christian apathy has survived the pandemic, imagine what is happening out in the world. If the church has not been moved to repentance, then what is happening to the culture? America has voted devils into State Houses, and they have shut down the Church. America is shaking her fist at God in wickedness and defiance. Liars control virtually every bastion of our media and information.

Some will read this blog and reject my message. I say to them: Listen to yourself! Listen to what you are defending. Listen to why this makes you angry. Shouldn’t you even consider that America is on track for as much trouble as it takes for God to save it?

Yet in all of this, there is good news. A core of godly praying people are standing between heaven and earth in intercession and repentance. There are preachers who are openly rejecting the criminal limitations that are being placed on their church. There are heroes rising up, and their numbers are growing every day.

Tomorrow, the Spirit will fall in a modern Day of Pentecost, in every house that defies the oppression of evildoers. Satan timed this in an attempt to discourage the core of believers and to dissuade the faithful from pressing into revival.

It is a time of both great darkness and great light. It is a time when the Army of God will find their full authority and might—even as evil plunges the world into blackness. It is time for us to arise, and shine!

Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. The nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising (Isaiah 60:1-3).

Vessels of Fire and Glory

Vessels of Fire and Glory is Mario’s newest book. It reached number one on Amazon among all Spirit-filled books. John Kilpatrick who led the Pensacola Revival said this after he read Vessels of Fire and Glory: “As I read the manuscript for Mario Murillo’s new book, Vessels of Fire and Glory, I said to myself, “Finally!” Mario has measured the church and the nation in this season and did not hold anything back. His honesty is like the sun rising inside a dark cave. This release is a paradox—it is sobering and refreshing; it is symptoms and the cure. I believe this revivalist has penned a treatise that should be in the hands of all who lead the work of God.”

 Edgewise

Here is a book about the end times with a totally different approach. It does not focus on how the world will end but on how to live as the curtain comes down on humanity. Powerful, practical, and encouraging.

Critical Mass

  1. When God’s judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. In this season your ruling desire should be to choose the fear of the Lord. Proverbs 1:20-33 (A severe warning) Isaiah 26:9

    1. Heaven’s sounding sweeter all the time!
      There’s coming a day when God HimSelf will send fire upon this earth and there will be no stopping that.
      Until then the people rage, pollute, loot, set fires and defile anything that they do not understand due to the violence that lies with them.
      Many will call me an escapist but guess what, I don’t care, my hope lies in heaven, my heart is steadfast Lord, my heart is steadfast, as my Husband and I continue looking up, for we know, that we know, we are but sojourners in this foreign world.

      Mario, I’ll bet you’ll remember this wonderful fella, who’s my old Pastor, whom I still love dearly, a great friend of Tommy Barnetts, Jan and Paul Crouch, me and my husband
      Just Listen to what he’s singing it helps make the world go away for a little while…😇

  2. What the devil meant for evil, God can use for good. We must never give up the faith. What we are seeing is the worst in humanity. But, just around the corner might be the best days of humanity if those who are Christians start sharing the faith and giving people hope for a better life. Most of these heathens who are bent on destroying are not old but very young. It is a time to reach out to them and show them a better way. We must not give up. Now is the time to rise up. Pray and be prepared. We have battled this spiritual war and now we must win it.

    1. Amen Smuzick! My thoughts were the same as I was watching live streams from Minneapolis last night. Some many young and lost souls in the streets of Minneapolis. I grew up within 50 miles of all the current destruction. I am more convinced than ever that the Holy Spirit is the only remedy for America now. The LORD has us on this earth at this time for a reason. Yesterday was Shavuot, the day on the Hebrew calendar that the Holy Spirit was poured out on the 120 in the upper room in Acts 2. Tomorrow is Pentecost Sunday on the church calendar. How we need the convicting, cleansing, and equipping power of the Holy Spirit.
      Lord Jesus, once again do what only you can do in the hearts of your wayward and hurting creation and in the hearts of the people who call on your name!

    2. Mark 16:15-20
      15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
      16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
      17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
      18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
      19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
      20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

      Either WE believe this COMMAND,…or WE don’t!

  3. Mario, Once again you are speaking the unpopular truth and those who refuse to hear do so at their own peril. My heart is saddened by this because Wilkerson saw three things in this. The first economic collapse followed by the violence and fires and following that was the military invasion that went throughout the entire country. It has been in my spirit since all of this started that if repentance doesn’t come, the next thing up will be so utterly terrifying that men’s hearts will seize in their chest from the fear.

    Right now, I am so hungry for Pentecost, I want nothing more than to be so empowered by the Spirit of
    God that wherever I go, everything is changed. People saved, healed, delivered, and set free by Jesus Christ. Dutch Sheets said, last night, that we are going to be in the grocery store and brush against somebody and they are going to be healed, they will want to know who we are that so much power is in us. We will lead them to Jesus! For years I have desired to be like the Apostles that were so full of the Spirit that even the shadow of Peter brought healing as he passed by. I believe the time has come that God is going to give me the desire of my heart to build His Kingdom from the gates of hell as the devil stands idly by powerless to stop it.

    God knows who we are that have not bowed the knee to Baal, we have not kissed him, and will not bow at his altar. I believe that whatever happens, if judgement comes in all of its fury, we who know our God will do great exploits even in the midst of destruction.

  4. Brother Mario…Your message reminds all of us what the Word Of God says in the book of Proverbs: “The wicked fleeth when no man pursueth; but the righteous standeth BOLD as a lion.” As we know, Jesus is the Lion from the tribe of Judah. In essence, if Jesus IS THE LION, (and he calls us his brothers) that makes US Lions too.
    Satan, is (AS, a roarin Lion) seeking whom he make devour. Proverbs 30:30 teaches us that: “The Lion is the strongest animal amongest all beast: he fears NOTHING!”
    It’s a blessing to be anointed to OPEN our Church again on Pentecost Sunday! We’re Preaching Hope through this plethora of pandemics!” For you shall receive POWER after that the Holy Ghost has come upon you and Ye shall be witnesses (martyrs) unto me in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and unto the utmost parts of the World!
    Brother Mario keep on “roaring” I hear you loud and clear!

    Blessings,

    Ron Gibson

  5. My heart cries. It was this virus that brought me to my doctrinal knees to ask myself what and why I really believed. I found out that except for Christ and the Cross, most everything else I thought I believed was not in accord with the Scripture. What a journey the last two months have been! I thank God for it. Yet, so much of the church (or those who call themselves the church) just want to go back to services as usual. It hurts to see the separation. Things will never be the same.

  6. I am praying for true repentance from the body of Christ and the great harvest of souls, revival. Praying for Pentecost Sunday, for God to begin then.

  7. John Baptist said, “He (Jesus, Messiah) will baptize with the Holy Ghost and FIRE”. The fire that is being seen in our beautiful America is fire alright, but it’t not fire that regenerates, renews and changes in a positive way. Where a fire has been in a field the grass is greener the vegetables are brighter, because the fire took away all the FLUFF, outside, visible that we wanted to be seen.
    The quotes below is the kind of fire the church needs today to survive. Religion will not, has never, can not bring about the renewal that Holy Ghost Fire can and so desires to in each of our lives.

    MICHELANGELO:
    When asked by an admirer how he sculpted such wonderful statues…his reply was – “I don’t carve statues, I just remove the excess stone so the angel inside can be revealed.” Michelangelo.

    “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”

    “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”

    “Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.”

    “Trifles make perfection, and perfection is no trifle.”

    “Carving is easy; you just go down to the skin and stop.”

    “The best artist has that thought alone which is contained within the marble shell; The sculptor’s hand can only break the spell to free the figures slumbering in the stone.”

    “The more the marbles wastes, the more the statue grows.”
    Michelangelo

    In the lifetime of Jesus we do not hear Him speak of:
    “My house,”
    “My land,”
    “My farm,”
    “My books,”
    “My business,” or
    “My money.”

    We do, however, hear Him speak of:
    “My Father” (Matt. 10:33)
    “My friends” (John 15:14)
    “My disciples” (John 15:8)
    “My church” (Matt. 16:18)
    “My name” (Matt. 18:20)
    “My words” (Mark 8:38)
    “My sheep” (John 10:27)
    “My joy” (John 17:13)

    As the old hymn of the church rings, “Oh Lord send the POWER”. Thanks so much Mario for your words that stirs our hearts afresh in these times. Wilson

    https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1266617184530264070 – This has nothing to do with race or George Floyd; this is a political insurgency funded by foreign bad actors. Note the Antifa logo spray-painted on the door.

    We do not lose sight of who God is and who we are in Christ. We do not lose sight of the truth that Jesus died for every soul, desiring that all come to knowledge of God.

    Let’s pray for the Lord Jesus Christ to be exalted and magnified in this moment. Let us lament for the vulnerable and broken, believing that God will use what was meant for evil, for good. To His glory!

  9. No one will want to believe it but it’s all bad actors… the cops are deep state, they have a history of working together… the two who directly killed him may not even be cops, from researching their pasts. George Floyd has a history of being a rapper, friends with famous people, and a friend found he was a porn actor. They seem like mkultra’d puppets to me. The riots smell like Soros evil; paid antifa members hired to start chaos. God has a plan and our POTUS knows the backstory on all of this. Keep praying and trusting Him but don’t feed into the lies and propaganda.

  10. Thank you brother Mario Murillo-all that you say by the promoting of the Holy Spirit, is what we all need to hear at this time. God bless you. Janie

  11. There is strong delusion.Most people in the church system have not been taught the judgement of God,The fear of the Lord,repentance or spiritual warfare.They have been taught cheap grace.But grace isn’t cheap,it cost God Everything.When sin fills up there is judgement. There has to be.God thru the prophet Jeremiah had much to say about prophets that lie in His Name ,that tell the people all is well when He didn’t tell them to speak those words. We must learn to discern the times,to look for the ancient paths and walk in it.There you will find rest for your souls.

      “God warned Israel about rejecting His early dealings- warning that harsher measures could follow.”

      The scriptures I think of when I ponder this last truth is a dreadful portion of scripture found in Leviticus 26 and an even more dreadful portion of scripture found in Deuteronomy 28. Talk about God turning up the heat on a stubborn, prideful, and rebellious people! I do not know how much more time the LORD is going to grant the Laodician Church in America but I do pray for many to come out of her. I do pray it will not be a long, hot summer with continual fires burning. It is certainly wise not to vex the Holy Spirit any longer. God have mercy!

      Leviticus 26:14-46
      Deuteronomy 28:15-68

  12. My heart was broken for America last night as I watched the coverage of America burning. We’ve had riots before, but this had a different feel to it. It was frightening to see those who clearly desired to break through the lines of the Secret Service and get to our President. Christians need to be praying daily for him, VP Pence, Pompeo, and the Cabinet, and their families. The genuine protestors, who are heart broken at the murder of this poor man were not the ones trying to steal everything they could get their hands on, burn down businesses, police depts. and post offices, and try to harm our President. These were bused in, paid, professional “rioters”, for the most part. But it was evident from the one-the-street interviews, that some were clearly angry, rage-filled, young people, willing to join in on the destruction of anything they could, saying it, “has to happen”. They were clearly willing to physically harm anyone they could get to if it came to that. My emotions ranged from empathy, to pity, to frustration, to disgust. One black civil rights lawyer who I almost never agree with came on Fox and expressed his disgust at democrat leaders who are not speaking out against the violence, and saying these were not protestors burning down businesses and looting, they were criminals, and if democrat leaders didn’t speak out against their violence, they had lost his vote and lose many other blacks. I was literally shocked at his words. Good for him! I wish you were not right, Pastor Mario, in assessing the state of the Church, but I fear you could be. Our church tends to be a leader in the community. I pray that they are reading your blogs and waking up. Because if they go back to church as usual, it will help apathy settle over the church community once again. I’m done with rock concerts on Sunday mornings. It’s time for real worship. And fog machines? You’ve got to be kidding. The Holy Spirit does not need a fog machine. He doesn’t need our phony, “help”. He will descend on us with His Glory Cloud if we cry out to Him with pure hearts of repentance, love and worship. Wake up, churches of America, and ALL denominations! The King is at the door. Are you going to invite Him in or are you too busy checking your agenda?

  13. Dear Mario & Mechelle Murillo,

    You are an expert marksman, You hit the target every time! Your blogs sum it up with Dunamis POWER!!!!! those who have an ear to hear what the spirit is saying to his church, Will Know & understand! Your time is now!!!! and our Lord Jesus Christ will give you great Victories!!!!)  Thank you,~Your sister

  14. Lately my comments here go to a “moderator” and are not published, so I gave up trying. But I will try again on this blog. Mario, your thoughts and discernment are right on target. Alcohol sales are up 50%. Those stirred momentarily to spiritual seeking and thoughts have predictably returned to complacency. Churches announce the “new normal” for church services, but the alters remain vacant. Some of us do have a fire burning inside, and we will never wave the white flag of surrender to satanic apathy and spiritual paralysis. Last Sunday night, we received a call that a friends grandson, hospitalized in ICU for days with a mystery illness leading to paralysis and being on a ventilator, now had a heart rate of only 20, and would probably not survive the night. Some of us prayed for him for continuously for the next 5 hours. After midnight doctors said he had stabilized, so we went to bed. Next morning, doctors had no explanation for his turnaround. He no longer needed the ventilator, began communicating, wiggled his extremities for the first time in days, and now appears headed to a rehab. No brief 2 minute “thy will be done” prayer here, but a stand in the gap, spiritual warfare fight for hours against the spirits of hell, darkness, and death trying to claim a 32 year old loved one. By faith, we stood in God’s armor, shield of faith and sword of the Spirit in hand, between this young man and the spirit of infirmity and death. We found that dunamis power still holds hell at bay. Church altars should once again be the center of activity!! Sadly, those who still give a call to prayer at the altar see only a brief moment of homage, but no seeking, intercession, or change. The church needs to realize that the old weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. Dunamis power still moves mountains. Prayer meetings for hours at a time seem a thing of the past, but unless the Church of Jesus Christ rises, stands, and “stands therefore,” as my mentor, Leonard Ravenhill wrote, we will know “Why Revival Tarries.”

  15. Where are those in the body of Christ that raise the dead?

  17. I agree. I believe the Lord told me there has not been enough repentance to stay the judgment. A calamity is coming. I am still praying for mercy and that the hearts will turn away from their evil ways.

  18. Just as Elijah felt like he was the only one left who still loved and served God, he was not alone and neither are we. We’ve been holed up in our homes, speaking in other tongues and declaring God’s Holy Word.

    The strangest thing happened to me in prayer for the Governor of my state, New York. I fight having harsh thoughts toward him. His actions are 100% against what I believe a good governor should do.

    I wanted to see him removed by God however the Lord deemed fit. So, I was startled as I was praying and heard my mouth say sincerely, not in sarcasm, something like this “Lord, for our dear dear Governor I ask Your mercy.” I was so shocked,. “DEAR Governor?” I reacted as if there were a stranger in the room saying it. That could NOT be ME!

    But it was. Moved by the Holy Ghost, it was me. I am guessing I was interpreting the tongues I had been speaking. Perhaps tongues is the safest, surely the best, way to pray for these difficult people who Satan is using to poison the world.

    I had not been praying with true kindness till I heard the interpretation of the prayers I had been praying. Mercy does not last forever but it does go a long long way.
    May God’s Kingdom come and His will be done in America starting today. ♥ And may dear Governor Cuomo hear God’s call and answer it with his whole heart.

  19. Dear Mario many thanks for your untiring work in warning the church of what is to come unless we and ” it” repents. Here in Australia I have heard of no church leader(s) espousing this same sentiment although it appears that the common man/woman Christian in the street seem to be appear to recognise that God is trying to tell us something. I can only pray that the church leader’s eyes are also opened otherwise I think we are going to be in for a very hard time.

  20. I posted a comment on this post, that was offering another perspective, basically saying that the officers, while demonstrating total disregard for the welfare of this man who was in obvious distress, it is not clear that the knee on the neck was the cause of death. It seems the autopsy would support that thought. i must say, I expect censorship on Facebook and You Tube, but was surprised to see it also existed here.

  21. We were getting caught up on Joyce Meyer’s teachings and something she said that I think shows why many Christians aren’t taking this time to purify themselves is something like, “You only gethe the purity you want. You have not because you ask not.”
