It is clear that, as the madness spreads and the church just wrings its hands, it is time for the eagles to leave the turkey-yard.  You know who you are, you who are an eagle.  There’s a fire inside you that you can’t put out.  You are ruined for ‘Church-As-Usual-Incorporated.’

For too long you’ve been told to be a good little birdie.  “Don’t ruffle any feathers!” But you just can’t stomach the stale kernels they toss to you.  You must have fresh meat.  All around you, the turkeys peck at the ground.  But all you can see are the clouds and the sky, where you know you belong.

You long to be home, where the glory is.  Your place is alongside the heroes of faith that changed the course of nations.  “Survival-mode” teaching sickens you.  The idea that tepid happiness is the goal enrages you.

You made the mistake of looking at old videos.  You saw Oral Roberts.  You saw Kathryn Kuhlman.  You saw Smith Wigglesworth.  You jumped up and screamed, “But, where are the miracles today!?”

(check out my blog, The Price of God’s Miracle Working Power:   )

You made the mistake of listening to old preaching tapes, where you heard men and women preaching holy fire!  They didn’t do monologues. They didn’t do stand-up comedy. They pulled the pin out of Bible verses, and flung them like a grenade to explode into the souls of their audience.  You heard people sobbing at the altars.  You heard them linger until something real and lasting transformed them.

Then something really painful happened to you…you looked at your generation. You saw the national cancer of wickedness.  You saw the insane brainwashing.  You saw the limp-wristed tactics of the church.

You became like David as he stared at the paralyzed army of Israel, cowering before a defiant Goliath.


So, now that you realize that the ‘SOMEBODY’ IS YOU, it is too late for you. The die is cast.  You’ve gone too far to turn back.  You now know too much.  You feel like you should leave before you hurt someone…

You remember the verse, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles.” (Isaiah 40:31).

Prayer is your escape from the prison yard of compromise and mediocrity. We’re not talking about the ‘gobble-gobble prayers’ you heard in the yard—we’re talking about falling before God and waiting upon Him until you come forth as pure gold.

What are we talking about?  We are talking about prayer that heaven can’t resist, and hell can’t stand. The kind of prayer that breaks the grip of ancient demonic strongholds.  Prayer that causes students begin to weep on campus, even though they do not know why.  Prayer that fills people with the Holy Spirit. Prayer that removes fear, and installs unshakable courage to tell a generation the genuine Good News: the mighty Gospel—which is the unapologetic, undeniable, unstoppable power of God!

Eagles dare while turkeys stare!

Eagles are born out of prayer. They spring forth from the hand of God, fully convinced of their destiny and their goal.  Let mistaken millennials protest against the AR-15.  You take hold of John 17:15, “My prayer is not that you take them out of the world, but that you protect them from the evil one.”  That is your battle cry!  You don’t want out.  You know the Lord Jesus will keep you from the evil one! You are ready to soar into any nest of evil and destroy the works of the devil.

Where eagles gather, power is present.  Where eagles gather, the deep purposes of Almighty God are revealed.  Where eagles gather, there’s no self-pity, no encounter sessions, and no hiding in your ‘safe-space.’  When turkeys are transformed into eagles, they are equipped, they are ignited, and they are fitted for war.

Eagles must have a challenge.  They yearn for a cause that will summon up all of their strength, talent, and time.  They want something they can easily imagine doing for the rest of their lives.


It’s time for you to fly out of the turkey yard, and never look back!





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. Eagles are set for the defense of the gospel. You know, Apologetics, where you apologize for nothing, and do everything in the power of His might to fight against the perversion of the gospel, that it might be yea and amen to the glory of God. Eagles keep looking down because they are enthroned with Christ far above all. They have an eternal perspective. It’s called permanent victory. They war FROM victory and not for victory.

  2. Brother Murillo, I know this is me and my son, but I don’t know what it looks like, how to walk into it, what to do in order to get there…to SOAR! Thank you,

    Beatrice “BB” D’Angelo


  3. Thanks so much for this Mario it made me weep with longing to break out from the mundane into the super spiritual world we are meant to fly in. I know your message is predominantly for the US but the UK need to hear it too. Bless you for your faithfulness and forthright ness to give us the truth.

  4. Eagles are prepared (set-apart) to crush the enemy! Their prayers break through those veils of darkness…and soar without fear of risks toward the assignments of maturing the Saints and winning Souls…for God’s Kingdom, NOT for their own earthly kingdoms. They seek truth from their ONE TRUE GOD. They keep Jesus Christ centered in their LIVES….in His Spirit! They dare to challenge with the whole Word of God. They help the poor, sick, needy, widows and widowers. They take each assignment given them in and through the Holy Spirit! They seek and know their just judge. They trust in Godly order and His Word is a light into their paths. They are NOT overcome by evil; BUT they overcome evil with good! Their tool boxes are filled with the Holy Spirit’s Supernatural Gift…and stand ready to use them when the Spirit leads them according to the needs of God’s people and God’s will! Eagles know who they are in Christ! OVERCOMERS LIVE AND MOVE FROM VICTORY TO VICTORY IN JESUS!

  5. This is good preaching Mario! Never been to a tent revival, but this must be what it’s like. It stirred my spirit to ‘ready, set, go’. I’m glad you referenced David in here, because I’ve been having David-like encounters for months. I asked the Lord to interrupt my dreams and teach me what He wanted me to know, and as the Holy Spirit is sure to show you things to come, my last two dreams set me up to be ready for things that are coming to me…not to run, but stand my ground. I’m with you about John 17:15. God is my life!!! He is the one we trust in times of need and there is no need to run.

    Blessings to you and your family! Karen Morris


  6. Mario, question I have regardless of the truth of the relationship with the lord ♥️are all agreements of the 501 3 C the reason the doors are closed and the body agreeing to wear masks, no gatherings etc ? I’m so grateful for House of Prayer not closing and where God has placed me out and about but after reading the binding law written for 501 3 C I see why the doors were shut ! Thanks for your help, Gwen Baden

  7. Thank you Mario for these encouraging words. We have been called to serve in a congregation, called to serve, NOT to be served. It is not an easy road, but our God is faithful. We are strong in faith, resolute in our resolve to follow our LORD and pray with frevency for those that our LORD has led us to serve. As a November madness is being planned, we are preparing on our knees and in our pantries for what is about to happen. Keep speaking the Word – the days is quickly approaching when our voices will be silenced by those who stand in darkness, as wolves among the sheep. 2 Chronicles 7:14….but God. LORD bless.

  8. Thanks Mario:
    The remarks are absolutely on target in these challenging days and times that we’re in.
    It brought to mind the article below about “my banner will be clear”, God will have no problem recognizing me.

    The following was written by a young pastor in Africa who was martyred for his faith. The note was found in his office after his death.

    “I’m part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have the Holy Spirit power. The die has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made — I’m a disciple of His. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I’m finished and done with low living, sight walking, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, worldly talking, cheap giving and dwarfed goals.

    “I no longer need prosperity, position, applause, promotions or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, am uplifted by prayer and I labor with power.

    “My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my Guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the enemy, pander at the pool of popularity, or wonder in the maze of ordinary.

    “I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, preached up for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus. I must go — until He comes, give — until I drop, preach — until all know, and work until He stops me. And, when He comes for His own — He will have no problem recognizing me — my banner will be clear!”

    Thanks again for the challenge.

  9. I believe it’s time for the church aka Christian leaders to organize and act. Where is our march on Washington DC? Where are our protests ? Where is our mob mentality? I’m not talking about burning cars and tearing down statues. I’m talking about unity of prayer and tearing down strongholds. I would love to attend a prayer rally where we pray and wail at the Washington monument. and dare to speak the name of Jesus Christ. But in these days, the Christian is falling for the political powerfulness of being afraid of offending people. Our rights are slowly but surely being whittled away and we the powerful church sit in our homes and cower and wait for the rapture. The church has become stagnant with it’s “tickle your ears” preaching. In California, the governor has declared it’s illegal to sing and “chant” in church. Covid is being used an excuse to stifle the church. God’s word says OCCUPY TILL I COME.

  10. Thank you once again. Your Rhema of God’s Truth is always beyond being on Point. Thank you for your Sacrifices to be all God has called you to be. A True Prophetic Ambassador Evangelist Who continues to Blaze the Trail when most others have decided to stake the ground, be content, and stay put. We are living in unprecedented Times in the History of this world. This Calls for Unprecedented World Shakers and History Makers. A New Breed of Five Fold Acension Gifts are being Birthed for Such a Time As This. We are to press in and March on. Blessings my Brother. God is just warming up with us. He isn’t done with us yet. Paradigm shift taking place like never before… ROOOOAAAARRRR!!!!!

  11. We must know who we are in Christ Jesus.We must know the authority that we possess in Him. I am done with sermons that are preached on the defense,reacting to what the devil has done and wringing their spiritual hands.Telling the sheep to hang on,listening to false news and following”their” rules .Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. Jesus completely destroyed the works of the devil,we just need to stand our ground and enforce the victory. God bless you Mario. Just found your Sunday night service on you tube.see you tonight.

  12. To God be all the Glory. One Eagle to Another spear your wings and fly. Fly and the power of His might.

  13. Mario, thank you for this word about eagles.
    “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent” Revelation 12:14
    “Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s” Psalm 103:5
    “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” Isaiah 40:31

  14. Yup. It was as if I saw and heard YHVH’s huge clenched fist come slamming down on the counter. He was like…That’s it! This has gone on long enough! It’s time to act! …..,….I don’t know whether He will strike within a few days or weeks, but it will be soon. I don’t know whether it will be a spectacular Ananias and Sapphira-style taking out of top public figures. However you can be sure of this — the Old Man is angry and His powerful blow will strike fear in the entire world. Life will never be the same. Everyone will know there is a God in Heaven!…you can be sure of that folks…

  15. 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.


  16. I’m sick to death of Christians telling me that Jesus is coming soon and will take us home before anything bad happens. I don’t want to be told that God has it all under control and there is nothing to worry about. Now is the time to gird our loins for war. The enemy encampment is at our gates, their armies outnumber us…We must pray and hear from the Lord of hosts and man our posts. Then will the Lord fight for us…he will lead us in battle to destroy the enemy. There is a down and dirty fight coming and our Lord expects us to rise up and follow His commands. Cowardice under fire is not an option.

  17. Mario, On Sunday, June 21, this past Father’s Day, I was having my quiet time that morning before going to church.  I was praying for my pastor as I have many burdens for him. Sitting in my recliner, looking into the forest in my back yard, I saw a bald eagle fly into the trees. I leaped up with excitement, holding my camera, anxiously waiting to see him come back out of the woods. I watched and waited for 2-3 minutes when out of the corner of my eye, I saw him come crashing out of the forest! More than what I saw was what I heard. I heard his wings thrashing against the tree branches as he struggled to make his way out of the woods.I did not get a photo but I will never forget the sound.

    I was curious about the timing of this wonderful experience, so I figured I needed to know something more about eagles and what that might mean spiritually for my pastor.I googled “Biblical meanings of Eagles.” 

    I read lots of good things but the main thing I learned is that eagles do not naturally know how to soar or glide on wind currents. They must be taught by their parents.  They are taught to go to high places and wait and wait and wait until that perfect air thermal comes and then by faith, they catch that wind and can glide and even soar for hours without expending any energy of their own! I also learned that because of the great weight eagles carry, that cannot fly very far by flapping their wings with their own strength.I read they can even die from exhaustion trying to fly by flapping in their own strength. I am sure you are way ahead of me, but the Lord showed me how to pray for my pastor that morning. He, as well as all believers, must learn to seek and wait on the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit comes, by faith, we can be carried to go and do and be wonderful things, all in His strength and might! Obviously, the warning is that when we move in our own flesh or strength, we don’t go very far and can even bring great harm to ourselves. Thank you for listening. Please know how much your videos and emails are a constant encouragement to seek the Lord and stay strong in Him! Blessings to you and your ministry! Carol Boyett

  18. Dear Mario,

    God bless you! Thanks for your daily words. They just keep getting better and better. You are amazing!

    Can I make a blog topic suggestion for you to consider?

    During this COVID crisis, I have felt that we are in an Elijah/Mt. Carmel moment.

    God has constantly been bringing to my mind Jesus’ teaching on casting mountains into the sea.

    As you know, when Jesus descended from the Mount of Transfiguration near the end of His earthly ministry He was asked to step in and help His disciples cast a demon out of a young boy. When the disciples later asked Jesus why they had been unable to cast it out themselves, Jesus replied “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible to you.” NIV (Matt 17:16-20, . About six months later, just before His Passion, Jesus repeated this teaching after He had cursed a fig tree in Jerusalem for not bearing fruit. When the disciples were surprised that the fig tree had withered so quickly, Jesus said “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go throw yourself into the sea’ and it will be done.” NIV (Matt 21:19-22, Mark 11:12-23). Obviously, Jesus knew that evil mountains were going to get in the way of His church, and so I would suggest that He made doubly sure that His disciples were armed with a supernatural weapon to cast those mountains out of the way.

    What would you think of encouraging those of us who really believe Jesus’ teaching in these Bible passages (which in 60 years as a Christian I have never head a sermon on) to join together across the country to cast this COVID mountain into the sea in Jesus’ Name – at least from all of our individual spheres of spiritual authority? I can’t help but think that God wants us to LEAVE THE TURKEY YARD through something like this as a public testimony to His great power and authority.

    Would love to know your thoughts.



    PS: I also listen to Lance Wallnau – God bless you both for your courage!

  19. Mario, you are God’s man for this hour and no surprise ,on my part, as I read and accept your Holy Spirit inspired and designed message for NOW!! For all too long the church has accepted His CALL and have, for the most part, compromised that Call with a ‘here-after thought’. It is obvious that we have ignored His word ‘Sent’, failing to be “Called Aside” to implement the ultimate purpose of the ‘Call’. I am reminded of Isaiah’s Messianic prophecy, IS. 32:1-8 (Amplified) “Eyes that see; ears that hear; tongue speaking Truth; a mind open to receive spiritual knowledge….” Pandemic??, yes. I am as frustrated with contagious compromise as anyone. However, beyond that, while I see the “gathering together” as scriptural ,thus essential, I see the Holy Spirit developing personal relationships with Jesus precedent to corporate worship where some are content to follow tradition.

  20. When are going to surrender to Yashua and recognize that the church has no power to effect the change Yashua wants.

    You must become a member of His Ekklesia to have power and authority to effect the change He wants.

    He is not building a building. Which is what a church is. Nothing more than a building where people may or not gather the false illusion that Yashua is going to suddenly come back for His church the false vision of the Bride of Christ and all will be well.

    You must first get your words correct before, you will encourage others to agree with you. And you must stop firing on the sheep.

    Stop calling The Lords Ekklesia the church. Because by doing so, you are emasculating His government, and rendering those who are supposed to be actively involved in His Ekklesia here on earth as it is in Heaven useless.

    May the Lord Sabaoth rebuke you for your continued assault on the sheep who have been led astray by the Church system that He did not establish or ever build. And may He open up your eyes of understanding to leave that church system and become a member of His Ekklesia, which is His Government here on earth as it is in Heaven.

  21. Ezekiel 9:4 “And the Lord said to him, ‘Pass through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in it.'”

    Ezekiel 9:5 “And to the others he said in my hearing, ‘Pass through the city after him, and strike. Your eye shall not spare, and you shall show no pity. ‘

    Ezekiel 9:6 “‘Kill old men outright, young men and maidens, little children and women, but touch no one on whom is the mark. And begin at my sanctuary.’ So they began with the elders who were before the house.”

    Holy Father, we groan over the abominations in the land; the iniquity is grievous and our hearts are vexed. Thick darkness covers the earth and we cry out to You, God, for a wave of the spirits of repentance and godly sorrow to crash down upon our land in the fear of the LORD, in which, You delight. Father we pray for deception to be uprooted; for us, Your people to be filled with the light of Christ. Clothe us in humility and meekness; give us boldness, courage, and confident in Christ by the power of Your Word, and the Power of Your Spirit, God. Let all who call on the name of the LORD, who confess Jesus is Lord, and who believe that God raised him from the dead, be united in mind and spirit, with hearts knit together in unity through the bond of peace, to the glory of God. Through Your great mercy, God, make us to turn from our idols and worship You in Spirit and truth. We make our petition to You, Father, with thankful hearts, in Jesus’ name.
