Wanted: Misfits, rebels and true warriors. I am looking for those who aren’t waiting for permission to save a nation from destruction.

Today, I write about violence. Today, I write to the violent. There is no point in talking to those who are afraid of their own shadow, or those who can’t wait for a return to the same old harmless lukewarm religion as before, when America reopens. This blog is not for those who practice ‘cuddly-Christianity.’

Matthew 11:12, “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.”

The Left says, “Be a good little Christian, we got this.”  They warn pastors, “Just because the pandemic is winding down, that doesn’t mean we won’t stop telling you when you can meet and what you can preach.  They say, “Get used to less privacy, less rights, and less money.” They used that cursed phrase, “new normal.”

So are you going to bend or stand? If you answer, “Stand,” then read on.

I am on the hunt for misfits! I am looking for those rare hearts who defy the lie. Those who confess with conviction that every dream—every vision—every strategy that God gave us is unchanged by the virus.

What are you doing during this shutdown, warrior? My guess is, instead of downgrading your dream, you downloaded defiance.  You didn’t relax, you reloaded. You aren’t whimpering and whining, but forging and shining.  You aren’t mooing with the cattle, you are yearning for battle.

Remember: Even before all of this happened, you withdrew from the religious rec-hall, so that you could go after God. Never forget how sick and empty you felt during those church performances of flesh, flash, and foolishness.

2 timothy 4:4-5, “And they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”

Then there was that day when you read these words: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father” (John 14:12).

The hunger to see signs and wonders body-slammed you. You wanted the real. You wanted the true miracles of Jesus and not those sad, commercialized parlor tricks that were so popular before the shutdown. In fact, the virus didn’t shake our faith in miracles—it intensified our passion to see more! More power! More fire! More miracles!

Pacing like a lion in my prayer room, I announced to the powers of hell that I won’t back down. I know what the devil is doing. He is fanning hatred toward the Gospel. He is using the virus as a pretext for persecution. So, what does that mean? It means something to the warrior that it can’t mean to the make-believer. It means we won’t back down. We won’t stop. We won’t dilute our message or lower our voice.

2 Corinthians 4:2, “But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.”

It also means the soldier of revival is facing a two-headed monster. One head is leftist state officials. Man of God, they want to shut you up. Woman of God, they want to dash your hopes and dreams.

The other head is the Laodicean church of America. The tepid, compromised, confused and cowardly hordes that refuse to buck the system—even if the system is after our freedoms and values. They won’t help. They won’t stand. You are grasping at straws when you try to get them to take a stand.

No, my friend, you must be prepared for a gallant fight. And on your side, are only you, and God. But that is always a majority! 

Are you going to back down now? Are you going to allow God-hating devils to decide the size of your future? Did the devil close doors for you?  God will rip them open again with His own bare hands. This virus and the fearful policies that are growing out of it did not, and cannot, kill the promises of God.

But you have to stand! Even against the gates of Hell! Forget about what others are going to do when this is over. You, prepare for total war.

Are you that pastor who woke up to your compromise and failure during the shutdown?  Are you in agony, trying to figure out how to tell the people that you are now pursuing fire, revival, and miracles? Are you obsessing over how many will leave the church? Stand!

Yes, they will leave. But for every one of these detractors who leave, ten true disciples will rise up. Your obedience will bring in lost souls. Your preaching will be crowned with divine healing miracles.

Do you own a business?  Stand against the tide of fake news about the economy.  God will protect your company. You may be in politics. Forget about votes!  Declare truth no matter who it offends, and then watch as God grants unusual favor.

You and I have no time to waste on the timid cold souls in the bleachers. We have work to do—God’s work! So what if it looks impossible. So what if there seems to be a million of them and just two of us. Today is your victory cry. The moment is yours to command!

The greatest thrill of life and the greatest honor is following God into dark and impossible situations. Don’t let go of this, you may never have another opportunity to prove the might of Jehovah Sabaoth, the Lord of the Armies of Heaven!

1 Samuel 14: 6, “Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few.””

Finally, don’t you dare act like this is too hard for you. Don’t flinch, wondering why this has happened to you. This is what your Christianity is for. This is what your faith is for.

Don’t you dare feel inadequate or shocked! Believe it or not, you have been training for this all of your life. Long before this virus, God separated you for special training. Long before this shutdown, the Lord shaped the circumstances of your life, to give you the heart and the skills for saving a nation.

“Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil; for we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” (Ephesians 6:11-13)

The gates of hell cannot prevail against that which heaven has put in you! Stand!




P.S. A Special message to all of our friends from Mario Murillo Ministries

Why do we offer you books? It is certainly not to blunt the impact of the message you just read. In fact, these books reinforce the message we are trying to spread. More on that in a moment.  So, why do we offer them to you?
When the pandemic closed our tent crusades, church meetings and rallies, the Holy Spirit commanded Mario to keep our staff on at full salary, and trust Him. He obeyed and God has provided. But another thing the Holy Spirit grants are wise ideas. And we needed one. That is when the War Chest Collection was born.
If you look at the page you will see no advertising. And there never will be. And if you get our newsletter you will see that we have stopped raising money for projects we can’t do right now. But even that was not good enough for us.
In this pandemic we needed something that was truly a win-win situation. We prayed for something that would help the people, and us, that was not a garish fund raiser.
Then, we remembered how John Wesley taught his young preachers to always bring books with them that would help the people. Why not then, at a time when people have time to read, offer them something that will empower them and at the same time keep us strong and ready to go as soon as the door reopens?  
We are amazed at the impact of Vessels of Fire and Glory. That book is not just blessing people—it has started a movement! Critical Mass remains required reading in many Christian schools and has never stopped influencing people who pray for revival. Edgewise offers wisdom for living in the last days. Together they provide you with solid, hard-hitting and encouraging truth. Not a bad thing just now.
The War Chest Collection has handed the enemy a double defeat by empowering God’s people and keeping us strong and ready.
Thank you for listening and get your War Chest Collection today. Turn your summer read into equipping, encouragement, and fire! We are all going to come out of this mightier than ever!   -Mario Murillo Ministries

  1. Mario just slaughtered that whimpy spirit that tries to down play the force of the great commission with signs and wonders confirming the preaching of the gospel of the kingdom. This blog is so filled with faith and anointing it is shaking the very gates of hell. Only a fool would seek to undermine this glorious gospel exhortation. HOW SWEET IT IS.

  2. Everything in this post should be the normal Christian life. Full of power in Christ bring filled with the Holy Spirit. Bold, running toward giants. I agree. Cannot stomach mainstream church that was hijacked by satan many years ago. Thank you for your writings.

  3. Thanks for the encouragement. Yes, Satan, the Devil slue-foot, the tempter and any other title that depicts his evil intent against the church of our Lord Jesus Christ, to steal to kill to destroy must come to nothing because the Living Word says, “SHALL NOT PREVAIL”.
    Matthew 16:18 (KJV)
    And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

    The Living Church of our Lord Jesus is promised REALITY, not just program’s, ceremonial, traditional empty religious cliché‘s. Just as the disciples of John believed and followed John the Baptist with all of their heart’s, but when their leader said, “BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD”, they left John and went after the One that John was sent to introduce. Status quo is not enough for the Living Church today, the living Church is hunger for and is promised REALITY.
    John 8:36 (KJV)
    If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
    Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is reality, the real. God bless you Mario. Wilson Hembree

  4. Thank you!!!🙏🏼🙏🏼👍🙏🏼🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  7. Amen Mario!!!
    I have seen the plans of the enemy, and they are ugly. Our young are being set up for a mass suicide. If we sit idly by and allow this to happen, we are going to suffer the worst disaster in American history. I can have no respect for those who have chosen to allow Satan to call the shots in their churches. It’s time to rise up and push those religious spirits to the side and do the work of the gospel while there is still time to save the nation. God doesn’t need a big army, he just needs the few that will say yes to Him, He will do the rest.

  8. Those who have been given much, much is required.

  9. Wow Mario! So much in this!!! I’m stirred up. This brought so much light, again. As I was reading this blog, God was showing me each step of the way, His preparation up to this point in my life. His instructions have been my saving grace. We can’t afford to let go of the Kingdom. It is the fight of our life. BLESSINGS!!!! VISION!!!! Let’s take it!


  10. Thank you again, Mario!

  12. Standing for the Lord in any way he wants to use us. Our forefathers fled religious persecution in England and came to form a Christian nation with the freedom to practice our Christian faith and save souls from the evil one. In the early church, we were all believers, Just believers in everything the Lord told us! ( no denominations) All in one accord. Stand for the Lord and his ways now more than ever before. As Mario states America is a miracle form God.

  13. Let all the frauds, hucksters, and self-worship carnival barkers collapse as far as I’m concerned. I am too busy winning souls and warring for Truth of God’s Word.

    Currently engaged with many gays and lesbians. Talk about an angry bunch!!
    Killing them with kindness though. hehehe~they don’t have a chance against the Holy Spirit!!!

  14. Mario, I am a prayer Warrior, a wall watcher, and I am ready to fight in the Army of God now and every moment for righteousness in my America and the Body if Christ!! Send me Lord!! Let me know how I can join you?!

  15. Fabulous word, Pastor Mario. I’m definitely one of those misfits. I appreciate this encouragement. What I believe I see is that God wants to take our church in another direction and the old guard is trying to hold onto the “business as usual” of the past.

  16. Awesome!!!!!

    We are Unstoppable !!!!  so comforting to know you and  so many other believers are like minded….must be the same Holy Spirit

         Speak the truth in Love…..we should not be shocked if some, in our circle of friends,  are exposed, offended, or plug their ears, and walk away from us, ….I know that sounds heartbreaking & awful,….. but it’s similar to what Paul said   “am I suddenly your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”…. Gal. 4:16  & If they hated Jesus, they will hate us also! John 15:18

         I believe we are going to see powerful, never even thought of, or seen  , one of a kind miracles in these last days, to bring in the harvest of souls.***Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man, the things the Lord has prepared for them that Love him!!!!!! 1 Cor. 2:9

  17. Thank you ,Mario these words are spirit fuel! The Name of Jesus is above every other name.Sometimes you just got to get spiritually violent with the enemy,grind him into dust and send him packing. Jesus already won the battle,we enforce it!

  18. I agree with you 100% how about taking out the John’s law permanent as a starter to void all the pastors objection to political speech, not that right and wrong are political but that seems to be the mind set. I am ready and willing to help with this and I knows we will prevail. I have had no success here in Arizona trying to get pastors to engage their flock in even a right or wrong discussion they would rather hide behind their boards than have the discussion with them. I am warning them that unlike in many countries and during Biblical times each of US in the USA is responsible for the evil our country allows because here we are the sovereign citizens, One Nation Under God. Like many a unruly Ruler in the Bible we will be held accountable for our shortcomings and failure to do right by Gods law. We correct nothing and barely a murmur for millions of babies slaughtered, churches forced or going along with gay marriage, participating in the sin, making the entire congregation a party to the sin. Purporting to solemnize their sin within the framework of Church and God’s Protection and approval. Is there any wonder we wander in the desert of socialism heading towards the cliffs of communism and confusion brought on by ignorance of Gods love for US and the wonderful start toward the Light of the World our founders gave US. Miseducation and lies for 60 + year have put the youth of the nation on the road to socialism and communism. Colleges of supposed higher learning have devolved into retraining camp bent on destroying any belief in the God of the Bible his son or right and wrong. It is going to take a heavenly Blast to wake the believers from their slumber and the churches they attend quake at threatened loss of a tax free status they should never have sought in the first place, having been misled into applying for it. Bartons videos on this are great and should be the primers for the ignorance of Board Members.

  19. Mario, this post confirmed to us to ACT on our FAITH knowing the need for the Body of Christ to have a plan to join in corporate prayer daily. We decided to use a plan that was successful during World War II in England. One of Churchill’s advisors developed a ONE MINUTE PRAYER PLAN where people dropped what they were doing and focused on God. We feel this pattern would be beneficial as a model for the Body of Christ in interceding for 🇺🇸 America today. We’ve prepared an invitation and we pray that you and your readers will join us in interceding for our beloved 🇺🇸 nation!


    2GMAS4GOD are inviting YOU to pray ONE MINUTE each day with us for our 🇺🇸 nation.

    Please set your alarm and join with us in our ONE MINUTE prayer EACH DAY at 12:00 p.m.

    We are following a pattern organized by Winston Churchill’s advisor in World War II. People dropped what they were doing every day to collectively pray for the safety of their nation, it’s people and peace.

    We strongly feel this unified ONE MINUTE prayer will help heal our beloved 🇺🇸America.

    We hope YOU will join us in this ONE MINUTE prayer desiring to see our 🇺🇸 nation flourish once again.

    EVERY DAY at 12:00 p.m.please stop what you’re doing and spend ONE MINUTE praying for 🇺🇸 America to truly be ONE NATION UNDER GOD once again! (Feel free to pray longer.)

    II Chronicles 7:14:
    If My people who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.


  20. I am a misfit for the Lord! I have continued to lead praise and worship at open churches that ask me, Im on FB, and YouTube. I’m a pioneer for Kingdom of God. We fight against Principalities of darkness principalities of darkness and they leave when I play and sing. He’s anointed me with the Holy Spirit to bring heaven to earth. God wants restoration and he wants us to love one another as he has loved us. He’s talking about your soul. I stand with you Mario.
    Many blessings In Jesus Name

  21. We are planning a Barn Revival August 28th, Legends Ranch Las Vegas NV. I preach & sing on Wednesday night prayer group, looking to reopen Church at the Ranch again for 3rd & (God willing) final round. No masks, no social distancing, no crowd limit. Already fought the county once, when Shady Steve Sisolak was commissioner, will do it again, now that he’s Governor. Im currently the only ADF (Alliance Defending Freedom) Ambassador in NV, looking for Church allies, Ministry allies, Attorney allies, & Ambassadors. Lets Fight.! Jeddidiah Tilleo, Loose Cannon
