WHAT WASHINGTON WILL DO SIGNALS A REBIRTH OF CHRISTIAN FAITH

Many of the most pivotal moments in history were not appreciated at the time.  We are at such a moment and we do not even realize it.  Something is taking place that seems routine.  It is actually monumental—an earthquake is shifting the spirit in Washington.

WHAT WASHINGTON WILL DO SIGNALS A REBIRTH OF CHRISTIAN FAITH

By Mario Murillo

Billy Graham will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda.  Mario, that is as it should be.  Billy Graham is a legendary American.  Of course he is, but are you forgetting what Washington is?
Barack Obama would never allow this tribute to Billy Graham.  Neither would Hillary Clinton—who ran on the progressive, anti-church platform of Obama.
Washington moved so far to the left under Obama that we are still weeding out the deep state sleeper cells in many government agencies—especially the FBI.  Under Obama, their hubris was as much against the church as it was Trump. (See this link to my blog on how Obama was the most biblically hostile president ever.)   https://wp.me/p1vrzp-3DQ
Did you know 9 presidents in a row welcomed Billy Graham to the White House?  Obama did not.
Obama made a token visit to Montreat N.C to visit Billy Graham.  But, when Graham endorsed Mitt Romney, Obama ordered the IRS to suspend the nonprofit status of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
The swamp people in D.C. are seething and boiling today.  Their dream of a Godless America has taken a massive hit.  A man of God will be honored in a highly visible way.  A spirit has been broken.  The unwritten code that Christian faith is not welcome in Washington has been shattered.

Where are the voices that stopped Manger scenes and insisted we have a holiday tree?  Where are the gas bags who screamed for separation of church and state, and sued every time they found an iota of faith expressed in a government setting?  Silenced and properly rebuked, they mutter in the crevices of Washington today.
Like everything else about Billy Graham’s life the timing of his death is divine.  He held out until some key things happened.  One of the most important was the election of Donald Trump.
Trump loved Billy Graham.  Our president is not a perfect man but he is under the influence of the Holy Spirit, and that influence grows because of the prayers of millions of believers.  Trump championed the cause of our faith in government.
Everything within me says this is just the beginning.  As Billy Graham lies in state, words of faith once banned, will be freely spoken—not only in by formal speakers but by the rank and file in restaurants, schools, and every hall of power.  The subject of the Gospel of Jesus Christ—Billy Graham’s passion—will be recounted by more in D.C. than if He was doing a crusade at the Washington Redskins football stadium.
The nation will stop and honor a man of God…but I believe, a rebirth of Christian faith in America will start.  Glory to God in the highest!

 

SATANIC ATTACKS THE BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS

Out of my ordeal, comes a defiant message of victory.  Many are asking me how I am doing.  The answer is, even though I am in pain—I still can’t walk very well—doctors have no idea what’s wrong with my hip, spine, and leg…I am excited.

Why am I so excited?  Why am I praising God out loud?  I am not glorifying suffering or sickness.  I believe we have total victory over them.  I know I am receiving my healing through the prayers of many.  It’s just that I have discovered something about my affliction that excites me:  Satanic attacks are the breakfast of champions.

Satan is paying me the highest compliment. Martin Luther said, “Satan only attacks those he fears.”  Many of today’s teachings have it backwards.  They think they are being left alone because they have great authority.  Actually, they are being ignored because they do not pose a threat.

I remember in high school football the one thing you didn’t want was a clean uniform.  If there’s no mud on you, it’s because you are on the bench.  The same is true in spiritual warfare.  If no one is trying to lay a glove on you—you are not dangerous to darkness.

Early in my ordeal I did not understand.  Like so many who bask in nights of miracles and the outpouring of God, I was not prepared to have it come to a screeching halt.   I had nights of shocking pain—that no medication could touch.  There was no position that didn’t hurt. Sleeping was a joke.  At times my soul was so vexed, I wondered if I would lose my mind.

Now I am overtaken by an even deeper revelation of spiritual warfare—a revelation of the breakfast of champions.  This can totally revolutionize the way you fight and endure an affliction like mine. It begins with a simple admission:

God did not do this to you, the enemy did.  But, God will capitalize on it, in a way, that will make the devil wish he had never touched you.  Here are the two devastating outcomes—for the devil—after he attacks you.

  1. This suffering in your soul will transform you into a healing gift for others.  Listen to Paul: “What a wonderful God we have—he is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the source of every mercy, and the one who so wonderfully comforts and strengthens us in our hardships and trials. And why does he do this? So that when others are troubled, needing our sympathy and encouragement, we can pass on to them this same help and comfort God has given us.”  -2 Corinthians 1: 3-4

What God puts in your soul to comfort you during this trial becomes a gift for others.  You emerge from this trial a more advanced healer—a more diverse and useful vessel.

Every minute I lay here, I feel my compassion for others deepen, and my resolve to see miracles intensify.  I can chafe against the process, or I can have let patience have its perfect work. But there is a second benefit to come out of these attacks.

2. The weapon that was supposed to kill you, will end up a weapon in your hand.  Goliath charged David with a sword—not just any sword—but a legendary sword.  For Goliath that weapon had one goal—to kill David.  The last thing the giant ever imagined was being beheaded by his own sword, and to have his prize possession become David’s sword.

Haman was hanged on the gallows he built for righteous Mordecai.  Daniel watched his enemies thrown to the very lions they meant for Daniel.  Likewise, the fiery furnace incinerated those who had the 3 Hebrew boys thrown in it first.

Lucifer put Paul in prison in order to stop him. He did not stop Paul in fact, he soon realized it was his worst mistake ever.  Paul said in Philippians 1:12 “I want you to know that the things which happened to me have fallen out rather to the furtherance of the Gospel.”  That is the greatest understatement of the last 2,000 years.

Every time Satan attacked Paul with imprisonment, Paul wrote another letter.  Until the collection of his writings became more than half of the New Testament.  How massive of a mistake was that for the devil?

So beloved brother and sister in Christ I am excited and full of peace.  Not until heaven will I understand why I am enduring this great test. I know I am being healed.  But I also know something much greater—Satan will regret the day he attacked you and me.

Paul must have written this verse over breakfast: “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”-Romans 8:18

 

 

 

A NEW PRAYER ALERT FOR MARIO MURILLO

This is a new prayer alert.  We are asking prayer for Mario Murillo.  We are facing a fresh challenge.  As we have reported to you, he was improving, but something happened two days ago.
The pain reappeared—not by any accident, but mysteriously—even though Mario followed a strict regimen required for recovery.  The cause is unknown to doctors but not to God.  That is why we are appealing to all of the friends of this ministry for fervent prayer.  We need a miracle.
We will never give glory to the enemy but we do recognize when he attacks.  Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 2: 18: “We wanted to come to you—I, Paul, tried over and over again—and Satan stopped us.”
This is a vicious attack to stop soul winning.  In this dark time for our nation, Satan is fully aware of the historic doors to win the lost that have opened to Mario Murillo Ministries.  Just as our voice was about to heard, he attacked.
We are asking for you to pray specifically.  Mario is keen on finding the root cause of his condition so that he can prevent it in the future.  If it is to be through a doctor—pray, we find the right doctor.  We need a physician who is not focused on injections and surgery but on a wider understanding of the spine and hip.
Ask for an instantaneous healing so that God may be glorified in the immediate restoration of our momentum to win the lost.
We need special prayer for Mechelle Murillo.  The constant care of her husband can be exhausting.  We do not need the evil one to create anymore health issues.  Pray for her strength.  Pray protection over her.  Pray she is able to rest.
Ministries that preach the Gospel with signs and wonders are often hesitant to report illness.  That has never been Mario’s style.  He believes in total transparency.  If you can trust us to tell you the truth about attacks, you can also trust us when we tell you about miracles.  After all, we are in a war and the Bible says, “we have this treasure in earthen vessels.”
Mario’s spirit is not broken.  In fact, this attack is building a fire in his soul to take even greater vengeance on the devil by winning even more souls and seeing more miracles of healing.
Your prayers are far more urgent than you know.  Paul said, “For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ.” –    Philippians 1:19.   Through your prayers knitted with ours, we shall see a miracle.  Thank you for praying and for sharing this alert with others.  God bless you!  -MMM

Billy Graham

Today, you will read many things about Billy Graham.  Greater writers and more famous voices than I will pay tribute to this singular man sent by God.  I have chosen a different path for my words about him.
I will leave it to the more qualified to astound you by recounting the achievements of this evangelist of evangelists.  Let me take you on another course…
In front of a barn in the middle of nowhere, a group of farmers met to pray.  One of them spoke up and said, “I don’t know why but I believe that from this spot, the Gospel will go around the world.”  Not far away, a little skinny boy did his chores—his name was Billy Graham.
In that day, Mortdecai Ham blazed a trail of revival. His fiery sermons electrified vast audiences.  Yet, one of his crusades was a devastating disappointment.  This entry was in his diary: “This week only 2 souls were saved.”  One of them was a 12-year-old Billy Graham.

My soul drew a strange comfort every year that Billy Graham was kept alive.  He was the Christian father praying for a wayward nation.  He was the national pastor whose very presence made me feel that there was a hand of protection on America.  He gave me hope that our nation could still repent.
I am choking back tears of sadness and dread. Does his departure signal the fact that we have finally crossed the deadline?  Or does his entrance into heaven mean a fresh mantle of soul winning will fall to many men and women.  Everything in me screams “LORD LET IT BE THE LATTER!”
Thank God we have a president who will honor Billy Graham.  Thank God, that the many angry and hateful voices, who would strip America of every last semblance of Christ, will be forced to relive the miracle of a country boy, with a simple message who spoke about Jesus to more people face to face, than anyone in history.
Thank God that perhaps, today’s preachers will get a lesson.
I was a little brother to the great evangelist scandals of the 1980’s.   I remember how the most popular magazine of the day posted a gallery of well-known evangelists. Under each picture was a list of their sins.  The last picture was of Billy Graham with this caption underneath: Above Reproach.
Many young preachers learned nothing about integrity from those scandals.  Instead of fearing God and humbling themselves they invented new ways to express pride and materialism.  They lust for best sellers and mansions.
What they never got—and still do not have—is the impact on society of a Billy Graham.
One simple example is when he toured the eastern bloc nations.  Not long after his crusades, the Soviet Union broke apart.  A careful look shows the first nations to discard communism were the same places where this man of God preached.  Impact not popularity. Get it?
Maybe you can see today—my dear brother—how much more he would have said to Oprah than you did.
Our loss stings.  Perhaps the sting is divine.  Let preachers feel it.  Let them see how thundering the Cross, the Blood, repentance, and hell, filled the largest stadiums in the world. It can again.
The word paragon is an interesting word.  It means a model of excellence. A towering, convicting, awe-inspiring paragon of evangelism has gone to heaven.

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT?

Whatever happened to the Baptism in the Holy Spirit?  You don’t hear about it anymore.  Churches don’t pray with people to receive it anymore.  There’s a big reason why.
Preacher, if you stopped presenting the Baptism of the Holy Spirit to your people—Satan made you do it.  If there is no room in your service for people to receive this urgent gift—the enemy seized control of your agenda.  If your people don’t even know what it is—you will answer to God.
No matter how noble, persuasive, or convincing the argument, the decision to exclude the Baptism of the Holy Spirit from the life of the church, is a decision conceived in hell.

Omitting this Baptism was a masterstroke of Lucifer.

He knew this was the most destructive deception possible.  It created lukewarm Christians.  It single handedly wiped out a huge amount of our soul winning.  And, it opened the door to untold heresy.

Today we are swimming in more false teaching, false prophecy and false Christianity than ever before.  All across the internet ministries dabble in new age hybrids of Christian faith, exotic extremes, drunkenness and even perversion.   Turns out, the church is the other swamp that needs draining.

Noted Christian Apologist Ravi Zacharias said, “I had dinner with the most popular preacher on television.  He told me that he did not see much difference between Islam and Christianity.”

How can we hang the blame for such foolishness on neglecting the Baptism of the Holy Spirit?   Let’s examine the evidence.
Jesus said, “John 16:13  “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.”
Jesus calls Him the Spirit of truth.  He imparts hunger for truth.  It is futile to layer truth on the unwilling soul.  False teaching abounds from the lack of hunger the Holy Spirit awakens.  Let’s go back to the root:

Don’t make a move without it!

Acts 1: 4 And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; 5 for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”
The church has no witness without it.  Acts 1:8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

The Apostles considered it an extreme urgency for all who believed to be filled with the Holy Spirit. 

Acts 8: 14 “Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them, 15 who, when they had come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit.”
-Acts 19: 1 “And it happened, while Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples 2 he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” So they said to him, “We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.” 3 And he said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?” So they said, “Into John’s baptism.”  4 Then Paul said, “John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.”
5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 6 And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.”

We have two extremes in the church:  Those who believe in nothing and those who believe in everything.

  Or to put it another way: We have those know nothing of what the Bible says and those who believe anything, anyone says about the Bible. Both are products of a lack of discernment and power.  It is only after you experience the real presence and power of God that you know what is fake.

Look at the discipleship result of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost:

Acts 2: 41 “Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. 42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43 Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.”

One big reason that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is not preached today is because it is the natural enemy of church marketing.

When God falls, church culture instantly changes.  Human promotion becomes obsolete.   An audience morphs into an army.  An insatiable hunger for the Word of God replaces sales pitches.
The preacher who withholds the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is guilty of treason—of withholding a priceless gift bought and paid for by the blood of Jesus—of holding back an edge of power that would keep the believer strong, alert, and able to win others.  It endows them with a prayer language that pierces all adversity.  How dare we hold this back!
The Pentecostal revival is the greatest Christian revival in history.  Beginning in the humble Azusa Street Mission, it has blazed for on for over 100 years, with over 650 million converts.  Only one thing explains it:  The Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

BREAKING NEWS ABOUT LAS VEGAS

We are coming to Las Vegas to win the lost and heal the sick on a scale we have never known.  We are going where gangs operate.  We are going where addicts languish.  We are going where the homeless sit in despair.  This Living Proof Tent Crusade will feature the widest range of ministries we have ever assembled.
We are going in the power of God.  Our mission, is to open the flood gates of heaven on the abyss of human suffering.  Never—and I mean never—has the fire for winning souls burned so hot within me.
Satan knew all of this, and viciously attacked me.  Many of you know what happened. After standing for 4 crusade services back to back—some lasting 3 hours—I felt a strange pain in my left leg and spine. After a long flight home it became excruciating.
This is extremely rare. I have been blessed with strength to endure brutal schedules for over 50 years. I have flown 6 million miles on American Airlines.  That doesn’t the miles on many other airlines.

  This became the greatest test ever.  After 3 doctors, X-rays, cat scan, and an MRI they were still guessing about the source of my pain.
The amount of intercession that has gone up for me is humbling and convicting.  This ordeal hardened my resolve. I told Satan, “there is no version of this where you win.”  I confessed, that the same power that flows in our meetings, will overshadow me through the prayers of the saints.
While doctors theorize, God works.  Every time people pray over me, the pain decreases and mobility increases.  Could I have been instantaneously healed?  Of course!  But a healing is a healing no matter how it comes.

 

There is something I am looking forward to.  It drives my recovery.  On Saturday March 24th we will serve lunch to pastors and leaders in the Las Vegas area.  It will be my honor to open my heart about the miracle I expect in April.  The luncheon is free but we need your reservation to order the food.  Call 775 238 3473 to reserve your place at this luncheon.
Not only this, but that night we will have a night of miracles and worship that is open to the public.
Advertisers say what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.  We say, what happens here will not stay here!  It will not stay in Vegas or even in Nevada.  Lord let revival fire sweep the land!

DON’T YOU KNOW ME I’M YOUR NATIVE SON

Good morning America how are you?  Don’t you know me I’m your native son?  The answer for the homeless is no, America doesn’t know you.  And many of our leaders are heaping an insult on you worse than your cold nights on the streets.
Many people believe that America wants to give aid to others rather than their own.
A growing number of Americans have these things to say: “If you are illegal in California, and other sanctuary states, you essentially have more rights than natural born citizens.  You can get healthcare before disoriented veterans who lost limbs fighting for our freedom.   Why?  Because they don’t know how to play the system.”
“Homeless citizens don’t have the advocacy groups you do.  No one is protesting for homeless Americans—especially homeless children.  You can commit crimes that would put Americans in jail.  The proof came when Los Angeles authorities helped shield convicted felons who were here illegally until ICE was finally able to arrest 221 of them.  They do not offer that buffer to homeless Americans.”
“Our children must pay for college you get it free.  Democrats will make sure you get a driver’s license.”
“In Silicon Valley, laid off Americans are forced to train their foreign replacements—yes, that’s right—the ones who are taking their jobs.”

“We take billions away from hard working Americans, and pay for all of this for you.  Then sit back and watch many of you protest, screaming at us, waving the flag of your nation—the nation that abandoned you—in our face, and call us intolerant, and racist.”  Average cost is 84 billion a year.
“How can Americans bear to look at Nancy Pelosi, Jorge Ramos or the gaggle of leftist activists?  They favor those who broke the law to get here above those who were born here.”

No nation can victimize their own this way and long survive. These verses portend our doom: Lamentations 5: 1 “Remember, O Lord, what has come upon us; Look, and behold our reproach! 2 Our inheritance has been turned over to aliens, And our houses to foreigners. 3 We have become orphans and waifs; our mothers are like widows.”
Famous pastors—under the influence of some zany theology—side with illegals against their own.  There is nothing righteous about opening our borders without securing it against those who come to steal, rape, murder.  There is nothing noble about letting them sneak back in time and again.

This year, Mario Murillo Ministries allied with Inner City Action, will be flooding the homeless with basic necessities.
Beware you do not make false assumptions about MMM.  While I unapologetically decry the wrong done to homeless American citizens, we do not make any distinction when we are on the streets giving out food and clothing.  We don’t talk about citizenship.  We talk about Christ.  We see every life as a soul for which Jesus died—and that is all we see.
Should people come to America and find opportunity? YES!  Should we put basic demands on them and let them flow through a system of naturalization.  Again Yes!  But without law and order we will destroy hope for those who are born here and for those who are going through proper channels to become Americans.
Sanctuary cities are monsters that kill the hope for both homeless citizens and demoralizes legal immigrants who spent years to become citizens.   We should never have punished innocent people to perpetuate a left wing state.
I am warning lukewarm Christians—silent, comfortable, and with strained necks, looking the other way—this growing menace will touch your life.
This injustice screams to God from the ground.  His eyes are a nation that has chosen to declare war on its own.  The billions squandered buying new votes for the Democratic Party could have cleaned the streets, emptied the homeless camps, hospitalized war vets, and saved children.

For heaven’s sake can you, Mr. and Mrs. Christian form an opinion, brave a conviction and—Lord help us—find a voice?!  Get off the fence!
Remember this Fall, what the Democratic Party has said loud and clear to all Americans: WE CARE ABOUT OTHERS MORE THAN AMERICANS.  Punish the evil doers.  Throw them out of office.  Enough is enough!
The next time you kneel before God, try explaining to Him why you have chosen to be neutral about your own children’s future.  Yes, that’s right…someone is taking their inheritance and giving it to another.
This is where I am supposed to redeem myself with some positive, chicken soup, cuddly closing that comforts you.  The only comfort should come from the fact that you shook off your fear and compromise and rose up  to do the right thing.
