IT WAS NOT UNTIL WE HIT THE STREETS OF FRESNO

It was not until we hit the streets of Fresno, it was not until we met the voracious hunger for God in the people, and only after the number of people being saved and healed exceeded anything we had seen before—it was only after all that, that it hit us: How evil! How wrong! How devastatingly misguided it was, to close the churches.

Monique Hernandez is praying with a woman. The photograph says it all. You can feel the love of God. You can feel the desperation and cry of that new-found daughter of God. I do not know her back story, but I know her future is glorious.

The street-level miracles almost seem to make the crusade tent unnecessary. On the other hand, if this is what is happening before the tent goes up, and before the lights, chairs and PA system are set—what will God do in the tent itself? What will happen when the hurting and lost come for miracles?

For weeks now, our team from Inner City Action Stockton, led by Frank Saldana, has shared the Gospel in Fresno under an open heaven. They have invaded homeless camps. They have undertaken a massive door to door campaign. They have given away nearly a thousand large boxes of food and prayed unapologetic prayer over countless families. Again, and again, they find open hearts. The neighborhoods greet them as if they knew the Bible verse that says, “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things” (Isaiah 52:7).

This report is both a blessing and a rebuke. The church should have never surrendered her First Amendment right to freedom of religion. However, what Satan meant for evil, God is using for good.

You must clearly understand what we are doing in Fresno, and why. Something will be attempted here that effects all of us, no matter where we live. This will not be a peaceful protest. This will not be an outdoor worship rally in protest of the lockdown. This will not be a friendly and light-hearted community event. It must be clearly understood that we are bringing a full-blown soul winning miracle crusade to Fresno.

We don’t care about reputation. We are not trying to be liked. We are in battle mode. We are marching to the orders and promise of 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…”

I know how Satan works. It may appear that we have unchallenged access to Fresno, but I know better. I know that it can be a trap! I am bracing for an October surprise from the enemy. It may come from the rabble who control certain neighborhoods. It may be demented protestors. It might be Sacramento stepping in to shut us down at the very last moment. It may even be local politicians.

But God has His people here, too! God gave me this promise: Acts 18:9-11, “Now the Lord spoke to Paul in the night by a vision, “Do not be afraid, but speak, and do not keep silent; for I am with you, and no one will attack you to hurt you; for I have many people in this city.” And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.”

In this blog I am asking for prayer for Mechelle and me, because, as a couple, we have made a firm resolve to resist the enemy in whatever form he takes. We are utterly convinced that we are in the right, and, most importantly, that we are in the will of God.

If you would like to volunteer to be a part of this miracle in Fresno please use this link  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdPkEJaMO2-62_WGHWqycedQ1KD_eEhqi7wgGXLnHvyrOIn3w/viewform?fbclid=IwAR1hCBOx3_H-QeLMyZCzb0DBgtG6v4lG1-2-pwGz_k6lCvpnC2WzP5Hee40

I am sure of these things: The day the leftist overlords of California announce that all the churches can reopen, will never arrive. They will put it off and continue to put it off, so long as the church allows them to do it. We are not in rebellion—they are. They have invented restrictions that no longer make sense, and that were never legal in the first place. They have done this out of their antipathy toward Christianity.

The other fact I am certain of, is that we must civilly disobey those who tell us not to preach the Gospel. I believe what God said. He has many people in high levels of authority here who understand that cities in California desperately need soul winning miracle crusades. And that, by the Grace of God, is what we are going to do in Fresno.

 

 

 

 

 

 

P.S. A Special message to those who support Mario Murillo’s message and outreach to America. Did you know that the outreach you see above was completely financed by people ordering our War Chest Collection? Think of that. It is a true win win situation.

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 this Fall season into equipping, encouragement, and fire! We are all going to come out of this mightier than ever!   -Mario Murillo Ministries

  5. The first Apostels have been in the same position as you and GOD WAS WITH THEM! Paul had the vision from a man teling him to come over.. to Macedonia!! And he went… so GOD is in controll … Jesus wants to save lifes.. and this only can be done by PREACHING HIM to the lost.. I pray that you keep strong together with your wife and ministers and everything that could stand between you all and the LORD let it be done away ! BLESSINGS from Farnce

  6. I normally post this to Facebook. But, I am in Facebook jail for some post.

    The thing is, is was a re-post of someone else’s post and I have no idea what the post was about.

    Censorship without “Discovery” or “Education” just we don’t like what you posted and we aren’t going to tell you why!

    Too close to the election for these shenanigans!

  7. I’m standing on this promise too Mario Murillo: ‘But God has His people here, too! God gave me this promise: Acts 18:9-11, “Now the Lord spoke to Paul in the night by a vision, “Do not be afraid, but speak, and do not keep silent; for I am with you, and no one will attack you to hurt you; for I have many people in this city.” And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.”

    Opposition will come, but this is a David & Goliath event in your life and I’m praying for your family as well as Amy Coney Barrett’s family. Thank you for going…doing what the Lord has spoken and He goes with you; therefore, you have a mighty army of hosts (and they are surrounding your activities, even now). ________________________________

  8. Dear Mario and all who work in your ministries:

    My prayers will be with you as you witness. This is the Hope I see in this chaotic world and I pray that the Lord will smile upon all of you in this ministry and that many will have hearts opened, bodies healed and a restored faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. I will pray for the whole Armor of God to protect you and provide for your every need. I will pray for Heaven to reign down and announce to the world who is King of All. Yes, the Lord is the Mighty One who will show many the ways of the wicked who shall be no more. In His Way, at His Time, and through His Will we will see Our Father come with His Kingdom here on Earth as it is in Heaven. For thine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory forever. Amen

  9. Amen. We stand with you in prayer and trust this will spread throughout our nation and the world and then the end shall come! Even so, come Lord Yeshua!

    1. Here an I send me… Mario I would like to help too in any way that would further the will of God in Fresno. God used you as his vessel to heal me back in 2004 in Houston of Leukemia ….let’s pray and ask God to move on this city and let them see His real power and love for the folks there.

  12. We’re praying! And we’re praying that anyone who tries to disrupt the event will fall out under the power just like those who came to arrest Jesus in John 18:6. Let their consciences be pricked and they repent and come into the Kingdom.

    Also, when you and Robbie prayed last night at Sunday Night Church, the symptoms of an infection left me, PTL! Thank you, and God bless you!!

  13. Mario, Since you spoke to my DTS at Hollywood Presby. church in 1987, I’ll never forget how God uses you to do His will and His wonders. Bless you, my brother. After reading this, and other posts you have written, I wonder why someone has not filed a class-action suit against the state and/or federal governments. I have seen pictures online of airplanes full of passengers, sitting shoulder-to-shoulder in the plane. If they can do that, why can’t the church meet–even with social distancing, that is not done in the planes? My prayer is that, as we submit to the government, as prescribed in the Bible, let us also move in our blood-bought power and authority to let government to act on our behalf. Blessings, and you remain in my prayers.

  14. Anyone who closed a church can be branded a coward. The bible does not teach us to follow illegal laws. But we must speak up when the laws are evil.

  15. Glory to God! We are with you, praying fasting and sowing into this anointing! I’m in agreement with every single word you write. In His grip, Brian and Sheri Nichols Sheri Rowe Ministries

  16. As much as I believe it’s good to be connected with a local church, if possible, and I have loved the church that I attend, it has come time for me to disconnect from it. I do so with a saddened heart that they did not heed the call, and are not taking the stand to do what churches are supposed to do in a dark hour such as we live in today . They are not sounding the alarm to the congregation about the moral decay, and the decadence of the agenda of the democrat party. No mention was even made yesterday regarding Amy Barrett, one of the MOST important issues of our day. I won’t try to surmise what their reasons are. I don’t want to guess wrong. It’s between them and God. I am saddened as I hate to see this formally great church lose their lampstand. Maybe they will still wake up before it is too late. I will continue to pray for them. In the meantime, there are many great ministries to support. There are many, many Christian programs and materials, along with online sources. I will be mostly dividing my tithes between MMM and Samaritan’s Purse. That’s the way it will have to be for now.

    1. God bless, Kingskid48! Sorry you are going through this. I always read and agree with what you write. There seems to be a dividing line being drawn today. The Church must rise up in this hour.

      i

      1. Thank you, Mark. I appreciate that. There are some pastors speaking out. I’ve seen encouraging things. But there is definite room for improvement.

  17. Amen, here in Mississippi will be praying for your upcoming crusade/revival.
    May God move and many be saved, healed and delivered.
