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!

 

ARE YOU SATISFIED OR IS YOUR SPIRIT TIRED?

Are you satisfied?  That question is life and death.  I’m not asking you if life is being fair to you.  This goes far deeper than that.  I am unapologetically trying to ignite a special fire in your soul.   It’s way more important than cholesterol, blood sugar, or joints.

This all started when I reread Psalm 91:14-16: “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”

One phrase jumped up and slapped me: “with long life I will satisfy him.”  This is a precious promise of living out your days until those days have satisfied you soul—satisfied you that you accomplished your purpose on this planet—and you are ready to go.

“Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rage at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” That opening stanza is from Dylan Thomas’s poem for his father. His father had been a robust, militant man most of his life, and when in his eighties, he became blind and weak, his son was disturbed seeing his father become “soft” or “gentle.” In this poem, Thomas is rousing his father to continue being the fierce man he had previously been.  I’m rousing you.

Have you turned soft and gentle, slowly surrendering to your decline?  Have you muffled dreams, purposes, and goals because your spirit is tired?

Maybe it is time for you to fold up your walker and use it to fight off your children for trying to put you in a home.  You already have a home.  You need to shake the gravitational force of your feelings, symptoms, and the stupidity of our culture.  Now I want to talk to you about unfinished business.

Unfinished business: You have unfinished business for your children, your grandchildren, and more.  You can’t leave yet.    King David experienced unfinished business.

He grew old and cold.  Literally, he couldn’t keep warm.  He was bed-ridden by his own spirit.  I know this because of how he reacted when they brought him the latest news.

“1 Kings 1:18 “So now, look! Adonijah has become king; and now, my lord the king, you do not know about it.”  Adonijah—the personification of abuse of wealth and power. Adonijah—a personality is so shallow and annoying that the idea of a king Adonijah horrified David.  It also woke him up.

Solomon is supposed to be king!  A generation is at stake!  The energy David couldn’t find is back.  He is out of the bed and into a chariot with his son Solomon.  The rightful king made the people rejoice so loudly it caused an earthquake.  1 Kings 1: 40 And all the people went up after him; and the people played the flutes and rejoiced with great joy, so that the earth seemed to split with their sound.”

The younger generation could not save themselves. It took David.  Likewise, you need to ignore the hollow boasts of a young culture that lacks wisdom and substance.  Do not think that only young voices with fresh methods will save America.  You have an urgent gift to give before you leave.  Here’s your manifesto:

Psalm 71: 17 “O God, you have taught me from my youth; And to this day I declare Your wondrous works. 18 Now also when I am old and gray headed, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, your power to everyone who is to come.”

Fresh Challenge: They told me the strangest thing.  “We are taking our retirement money and using it to start a new business.”   I could have told them about the long hours, severe competition, and the great risk.  It would have been futile before the fire that burned in their hearts.  They believed the wealth of the wicked was laid up for the just.   They would rather build a legacy than pinch pennies traipsing cross country in a Winnebago.

Joshua was stunned and didn’t know what to say to 80-year-old Caleb:  Joshua 14:10 “And now, behold, the Lord has kept me alive, as He said, these forty-five years, ever since the Lord spoke this word to Moses while Israel wandered in the wilderness; and now, here I am this day, eighty-five years old. 11 As yet I am as strong this day as on the day that Moses sent me; just as my strength was then, so now is my strength for war, both for going out and for coming in. 12 Now therefore, give me this mountain of which the Lord spoke in that day; for you heard in that day how the Anakim were there, and that the cities were great and fortified. It may be that the Lord will be with me, and I shall be able to drive them out as the Lord said.”13 And Joshua blessed him, and gave Hebron to Caleb the son of Jephunneh as an inheritance.”

You have a wealth of experience, wisdom and talent.  Find fresh ways to give it away.

Kept alive until you are satisfied.   Now let’s talk about the most powerful force for rejuvenation there is: The pull of prophecy.  Simeon expected God to save Israel.  He lived and breathed the promises that God made to him.  It lengthened his life.  He knew he could not die until he had seen the Lord’s Christ.  The Holy Spirit revealed it to him.

Luke 2: 25 And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was just and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. 27 So he came by the Spirit into the temple. And when the parents brought in the Child Jesus, to do for Him according to the custom of the law, 28 he took Him up in his arms and blessed God and said: 29 “Lord, now You are letting Your servant depart in peace, According to Your word;
30 For my eyes have seen Your salvation 31 Which You have prepared before the face of all peoples, 32 A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, And the glory of Your people Israel.”

What has the Holy Spirit revealed to you about your children, grandchildren and our nation?  Is the enemy eating away at prophecies, promises and mandates?  Has a broken heart created a tired spirit and a weakened body?

You are going to pray in every last member of your family.  Wrap yourself back into to those prophetic words. Wait on the Lord and you shall renew your strength and you will mount up with wings as eagles and with a long life and years worth living declare to the heavens “I am satisfied.”

The prayer that will prevail for America

 

The Bible shows us that supernatural evil can establish itself in a culture and open a floodgate of misery.  How these spirits can be confronted and driven back should be the study of every child of God.

The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ inflicted the greatest wound evil has ever known.  Today, we need evil to take another massive hit in America.  To do this we must realize that we are in a war, an invisible war.

The idea of an invisible war raging all around them paralyzes most Christians. Their daily life overwhelms them.  They are losing their health and their mind because of supernatural stress.  Yet, for all of this, they refuse to open their eyes to the war that is costing them dearly. But see it they must, or they will live out the rest of their days discouraged, helpless and exhausted.

Yes, it is chilling to realize that something supernatural hates you and those you love.  It is even more frightening to discover how much the destruction being caused by principalities and powers are doing to our nation.

The Bible has methods for dealing with Satan’s agenda.  God yearns to reveal Himself as a mighty warrior on behalf of those who will take the time to become armed and dangerous.  But instead of heeding the cry of the Holy Spirit most believers are content to live in dread, defeat, and confusion.

The evil one of course, loves it this way.  He wants you to live on the defensive.  He wants you reacting instead of acting.  He wants you to feel that darkness is inevitable and that the works of vile men cannot be reversed.  In fact, the wicked one wants you to believe that the overpowering demands of your everyday life are so great that you cannot even consider being a warrior in the larger battle for the soul of a nation.  How better to dismantle America than to prevent the army of God from ever entering the theater of battle?

Let me speak plainly.  Have you had enough?  Are you ready to reopen the Bible and apply its message of supernatural victory to your life?

He is Risen

You road map to victory begins by asking the right question.

1. What is God’s will for me as a warrior?  We must answer the bigger questions but this one comes first.  The Bible tells you that your FATHER wants you strong, securing the thoughts and emotions in your mind to force them to submit to truth.  Confess that your father wants to make you mighty through training for and living in a culture of victory forged by habitual breakthroughs in battle.

Ephesians 6:10-13 says, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, 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, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

You must settle the question of your victory in this war.  Yes, you must fight but you are designed for triumph in battle.  Admit that the evil one has had the upper hand because of your ignorance of the Word of God and the heart of God, and that you are done with this ignorance once and for all.

That you may not yet know how to fight does not matter at this point.  You may not yet have your emotions under control.  What you need now is to know beyond knowing that God your Father has assured you inward and outward victory.

GodBlessAmerica

2. Now you must take your stand.  “Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;  above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”  – Ephesians 6: 14-17

This is your personal declaration of war.  Some balk at this because the idea that they are challenging Satan awakens fear.  “If I announce my opposition to Satan I open myself up to attack.”  This is a huge misnomer.  You are already under attack.  The only difference now is that you are fighting back.

It is a disastrous myth to think that if you leave Satan alone that he will leave you alone.  As I have said before, that is like believing that the bull will not charge because you are a vegetarian.

Since you are going to be attacked anyway, you must learn how to return fire.  Nothing matches prayer for retaliation against Satan.

3.  Now we must begin praying prayers that get through and prevail. The truth that God has limited some of His activity to our prayers is a great mystery.  However, we do not have the luxury of waiting until we unravel this mystery before we avail ourselves of the great privilege of prevailing prayer.

When Jesus taught us that we need to pray, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,” the clear message is that God waits for us to enforce the victory He won on the Cross.   Simply put, heaven comes to earth in pieces, in segments as the product of fervent prayer.   We are commissioned, empowered and trained to take high value ground that was once the unchallenged property of Satan.

It is urgent that you see why that after Paul told us to be strong and to put on all of the armor in Ephesians 6, he concludes his admonition with verse18: “praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.”

Prayer and prevailing prayer can look the same but they are completely different.  You may have been praying and then settling for something that is not the will of God.  The angel told Daniel, Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia.” -Daniel 10:12, 13.

Whatever it takes: The modern spoon-fed believer cannot imagine warring 21 minutes let alone 21 days.  Yet, it is this tenacity in intercession that changes the world.  You pray fervently, utterly and without regard to time or personal sacrifice because your marriage, your children, grandchildren and the miracles that yearn to come are worth it!

gwprayingvalleyforge2

Consider that Daniel did not have the great intercessor Jesus at the right hand of God.  The victory of Calvary was still a future event and its eternal benefits were not yet in place.  How much more then should we feel bolder in prayer than Daniel!

First you counterpunch the attacks in your soul.  Then you take on the attacks on your loved ones.  You enlarge your retaliation to envelope health, finances, taxes, enemies, and your entire daily grind.

With each victory comes a deeper resolve.  You exhale knowing you are finally on the offensive driving back devils that you once tolerated for reasons you cannot even remember.  The days of dread are in your rear view mirror.

Yes, you will be attacked again but now instead of dread you welcome the opportunity to exercise your new found boldness in prayer and to see the new kinds of intervention that the Holy Spirit will unfold.

4. Now you have earned the right to call America back to God through prayer!  You can ask questions you never asked before. Arthur Matthews said, “Questions again flood our minds.  How do these spirit powers exert their influence in society?  Where do they get in?  Is there a distinctive modus operandi that would help us identify them?  What can or what should we be doing to control and prevent their intrusion?”

Here is a historical fact that should deeply sober every American Christian: Israel lost the knowledge of God in one generation.  Judges 2:10,11 says, “When all that generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation arose after them who did not know the Lord nor the work which He had done for Israel. Then the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served the Baals.”

Satan has saved his very best lie for God’s remnant. Remember that Jesus said “to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”  Satan is plying a special lie on the elect of God!  Satan is even imitating the voice of the Holy Spirit to tell this lie!  He is doing this because this remnant is the final firewall stopping his agenda for America.

In a nutshell, here is the deceiving message from the devil to the righteous core:  “The best days of the Church are behind you.  God must judge America to allow the return of Christ. God cannot do it again because He does not want to. The bottom line of this lie is the times are too hard, the task is too great and we are too small.”

I have heard from sources I trust, that a deep state within our government has dreadful plans to overrule the Constitution, and come after our freedoms.  What do we do with this information?  The saints in Damascus heard Saul of Tarsus was coming with authority from the government to arrest and execute Christians.

Those believers could have cited end time prophecy to justify running and hiding but instead they took their stand.  They set themselves to fervent prayer and unleashed heaven on the situation.  A light blasts Saul off of his horse ending the threat.  As a bonus to this victory, the Church gets a new Apostle named Paul.

In this hour, our revival prayer must be mingled with two seemingly opposing attitudes:  An utter desperation that admits that God must do it again, and a violent confidence that God will do it

again!

FINAL INSTRUCTIONS

 God is doing a secret work in our day. He is raising up a hungry people who are growing more and more dissatisfied with the fleshly, worldly system as it now exists—even in the church.

These God-hungry people are saying among themselves, “This is not it. There is something more. The bigness and the sensationalism of it all has left us empty and dry. We want more. More than entertainment. More than big, showy buildings. More than a shallow celebrity gospel. We want deeper values. We want to see Jesus. We want spotless robes of righteousness. We want to go back to doing things in total dependence on God.”

I see it all over the nation today — disillusioned Christians searching for reality. The people in the pew are beginning to fast and pray. They are the ones who now weep between the porch and the altar. And, they are crying out for more depth and more of eternal values from the pulpit. If the minister of their church goes on in some egocentric way, pursuing expensive dreams, they will go out looking for a place where their deepest spiritual needs will be met.

I know it to be a fact that numerous ministers share my own desperate hunger for a deeper work of God in the church and ministry today. There seems to be a secret underground network of men of God who are stripping themselves down, humbling themselves, and getting back into the secret closet of prayer. Recently I have met a number of ministers, of various denominations, who are praying up to 6 and 8 hours a day. They are fasting. Some of these dear men of God grieve over conditions in the church today. God is revealing to all praying people that a glorious new work of the Spirit is about to break forth. God is going to shake everything that can be shaken. He will tear down the old political, backslidden, ecclesiastical system. He will disown the formal, super-church structure. He will chase out of His presence all who are engaging in self-promoting ministries.

Be honest, saints of God. Are you really satisfied with the religious system today, and especially in your church? Some are. But most are not getting their needs met. I believe we have gotten off the track of true spirituality. The spiritual leanness of so many Christians today is a direct result of getting into the flesh — trying to do kingdom work in our own power, with worldly methods. Our values are becoming perverted.

Shame on us! We are substituting temporal values for eternal ones. We have evangelists and teachers who specialize in telling believers how much God owes them. Material blessings are magnified, spiritual ones minimized. According to some, it is our right to be rich, successful, and immune to all pain.

These teachers point to themselves as examples of prosperity. “Look at me,” it is said, “I have proved the promises. I live well. I am never sick — I have no unpaid bills. I drive the best cars. I live in the finest home. It works for me, so believe as I do and you can have what I have.”

Beloved, how much of that teaching will stand up before the judgment seat of Christ? There is a growing inner knowledge in me that most of our modern, self-centered teaching is going to be consumed before the flaming eyes of the Son of God.

John, in his vision of the Son of God, saw an awesome sight.

“…his head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire…” (Rev. 1:14).

John goes on to say,

“…I fell at his feet as dead…” (v.17).

Will any of us, as teachers and evangelists, be able to stand before those piercing eyes of flaming fire? Can any Christian look Him in the eyes? No ego can withstand His gaze. No self-centered dreams can go unexposed. All secret sin will be exposed as a terrible abomination in His sight.

All the things we have accumulated will burn. All the great works we have done for Him, with such zeal and sweat, will they also burn?

burn

How important is what you are doing to God’s kingdom? God can give you the desire of your heart, but send leanness to your soul. God assisted Israel in their desire to have a king. But He later disciplined them for their selfish motives.

Are you in some kind of competitive race? Are you doing things for God just to keep up with others? In eternity, looking back—how really necessary will it all be then?

Children of God, what is the good of what you and I are doing? Do we have motives based on eternal values? If we truly believe the end of all things is upon us, what should we be doing about purging our values? What is it going to take to wake us up and get us out of the drift toward ease and comfort?

I confess to you that it has taken years for me to live only for eternal values. I grieve when I think back of the time and money I wasted trying to build something tangible for God. I wanted something people could see. How important I thought those buildings were to God’s kingdom. I convinced myself, “God deserves the best.” He does—but not in bricks, mortar, and steel—He deserves the best of our time and yieldedness. Thank God for the day the Spirit revealed to me how shallow my values were! I spent 20 years planning programs, building buildings, running all over the world trying to show God how important to His kingdom I was. All the while my reputation grew as a minister of faith and vision. Yet, after each new project, I felt a letdown. No sooner was one building finished, and I was already planning another. I was an idea-man for God. I had more ideas than any preacher in America. Ideas on how to evangelize. How to organize New Testament programs. The programs and ideas were successful enough to entrap me and keep me on the treadmill of busy-ness.

But all along my heart yearned for more. I knew the blessing was not in building. Not in some well-planned scheme to reach the lost. Not in bigness, and not in activity. I discovered the hard way, that the glory of God, the peace and joy of the Spirit, was in being stripped down, emptied, and made totally weak. God had to expose all my values. He turned His flaming eyes on my soul and showed me I had better reject my old way of doing things, or be lost in a maze of self-imposed activity.

Now, my greatest joy is waiting upon Him for direction. I have made time to be alone with Him, and have prepared my soul to abide in His quiet presence. He is letting me sense what the Spirit is saying to this generation. The more He empties me, the more He fills me with a desire to depend only on Him for everything. I see now that all along the Lord was waiting for me to lay down all my plans, all my ambitions, and be given over to Him as a bondslave. The sweat is now gone – the pressure is off. He is recreating all my values.

The Final Shaking

What will happen when God begins to shake everything that can be shaken? When all false values tumble and earthly dreams and plans lose their meaning?

Sadly, many of God’s children are going to end up bewildered and confused. As the world moves into the era of economic collapse – when persecution falls even upon civilized nations – when governments are convulsing and tottering on the brink of total collapse — how many Christians will survive the test?

test

A lot of God’s people are going to wonder where they are. Ministers who are caught up in the trap of human vision will leave the ministry confused, all their work to no avail. Multitudes will be asking, “What’s it all about? What’s happening? What does the future hold? Where are we? Who can tell us the mind of God?”

We are now moving swiftly into what we know as the end time. We had better be in possession of a heavenly vision of holiness and humility. The testing time is coming down upon us with lightning speed. It is going to take more than a doctrine or a particular teaching to see us through. We are going to have to really know the Lord in His fullness. We had better have our eyes on eternal values. Only spiritual things are going to remain. Only spiritual people will understand what is happening and not faint. We must be linked up with the mind of the Spirit so we will not be thrown by the radical changes that are coming. We must bring ourselves, to the place we have nothing to lose. We need to walk away from all the junk in our lives — we are going to lose it all anyhow.

How much of God do you possess in this final hour of disintegration and fear? How earthly are you? How transitory are your desires? Have your values been sifted and purged by the Spirit of almighty God? How much of the world interests you — how much time is consumed in chasing after things that don’t matter now?

End-Time Restlessness

You will know when the Spirit is calling you out of the shallow Christianity about you. You will know when the Lord is wanting to touch you in a supernatural way. You will know when He is calling you out of the ordinary. He will stir your nest. An unexplainable divine restlessness will come upon you. You will become disinterested in what you have been doing. All your successes will leave you feeling empty and unfulfilled. Nothing that you have or do will meet the need in you for reality. You will sense that a very deep need in you has not yet been met — questions that have never been answered. A shadow of dissatisfaction will be cast over your entire life.

That is a mark of God’s dealing with you in a supernatural way, trying to get you to turn loose of all that you hold dear. It is His way of showing you that your needs are really spiritual and not physical.

You will feel His magnetic pull back to prayer — back to spiritual hunger, to broken-ness and self-emptying. Soon, you will be touching those satisfying eternal values and your soul will cry out, “This is what I’ve been wanting all along. He has taken away the earthly and replaced it with the spiritual.”

Saints, the key word is hunger. He has promised to fill the hungry heart. I have never been so hungry for God. That hunger almost overwhelms me at times. Every waking hour my heart reaches out to Him. Because His thoughts are always on my mind, the things of the world have lost their value. I see things as Paul did — nothing but the dung of this world. I am becoming a nobody—it feels so good.

Do you also sense this call to a deeper walk with God? Is your soul hungry for more of the Spirit in your life? If so, end the civil war in you — by yielding everything you have to the Master. The misery goes the very moment you surrender all to Him. You can know true peace and happiness the moment you quit trying to be somebody. Want nothing but Jesus, and your life will take on a new meaning.

rest

Don’t Waste Another Hour

My greatest grief is that it took so long for me to get out of God’s way. I wasted years doing things simply out of compassion. I was spiritually blind, not knowing that God must clearly direct every step I take. I had an international pulpit — preaching to thousands — with crowded altars. Thank God He showed me there was much more. The numbers and the crowds meant nothing. I wanted to see people get deeper into the Lord. I wanted nothing more to do with shallow decisions. God had to totally change my way of thinking, and now, like Gideon, I know that big is not always best.

Don’t let it happen to you. Take stock of your life and values. Shut yourself up with God alone in the secret closet. Pray diligently for spiritual hunger. Ask God to give you a spirit of sorrow for wasting so much time. Pray for a greater desire for His Word. Pray for a broken heart. Pray for a purging and a purifying work in your life. Then get ready to be cast into the fire of testing.

“…I will purge the sons of Levi…” (Mal. 3:3)

I can tell you it’s worth it! The purging will not seem joyous, but rather grievous. But you will soon glorify the Lord for the results in your life. All the anxiety will be gone. All worldly ambition will die. Your spiritual eyes will be opened to truth. The Spirit will give you revelation knowledge. You will exchange the riches of this world for the true riches of Christ Jesus. You will wake up each morning with an over-flowing joy. Your soul will cry out “I found what my soul has been longing for. Rest–beautiful rest in my Lord.”

You can then say with David, the Psalmist — “In his presence is there is fullness of joy; at his right hand there are pleasures forevermore…” (Ps.16:11).

Proof Scriptures

“…for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ So then everyone of us shall give an account of himself to God…”(Rom. 14:10-12).

“…The end of all things is at hand; be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer…” (I Pet. 4:7).

“… The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light…” (Rom. 13:12).

“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build, upon this foundation gold stones, wood, hay, stubble; every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire…” (I Cor. 3: 11-15).

The moment we’ve waited for is here

I asked you to pray.  God sent the answer!  The moment we’ve waited for is here—something I have waited for all my life is here.  It was a dream hidden in the deep recesses of my soul.  It could not have arrived at a more pivotal moment.  It is our turning point. 

OUR NEW TENT IS GOING UP IN FRESNO!  Mario Murillo Ministries along with Frank Saldana and Inner-City Action and many local ministries are coming to Fresno.  We are setting up our tent on October 18th and it will be up until at least October 24th.

Our message to Fresno is bold!  “America can’t solve addiction, violence, poverty, and injustice.  Only one thing can heal us.  Jesus proved He was the Son of God by doing the things no one has ever done. Let us prove His miracle can still happen to you.  Start the life you’ve always wanted.”

The entire spectrum of human need will be touched.  Food and clothing for the needy.  Tangible opportunities for freedom from poverty and addiction.  The Holy Spirit will heal and deliver all who need miracles. 

Not only this but a revival fire with engulf the church.   Everything is set.  We have the tent.  We have the provisions.  The only thing left to do is decide on the exact tent location.  We have three options.  We will know within two days.

The miracle began to unfold while I was with Rick Wiles on the global news network TRUNEWS.   We had just finished a poignant and controversial radio interview.  He looked at me and asked, “Is there anything your ministry needs?”

Before I could answer, he asked, “Can you use a tent?”  He might has well have asked, “Can nitro use glycerin?”  He had no idea—only God and my wife had any idea how I ached for a tent.  Why a tent?

Rick Wiles did not just give us a tent—he gave us a brand new 10,000-square foot tent cathedral.  And—can you believe it—he threw in 1,000 plush folding chairs that came out of the sky boxes of an NFL stadium.  I couldn’t breathe because of the excitement I felt.

Rick and TRUNEWS also began sending us monthly sacrificial gifts toward our million-dollar goal.  Then they hired two 60-foot semis to transport the tent and chairs all the way from Vero Beach, Florida to Reno, Nevada.

This is the moment we have been waiting for: To connect hearts with pastors and leaders in a desperate city—to have the tent and equipment to take to that city—to secure the ground needed for an extended invasion—to gather an army from across America to help us apply the healing balm of the Gospel to an open wound. 

It is with epic excitement that we announce our first Living Proof Crusade in our new tent!

THE BATTLE FOR AMERICA STARTS NOW

 

In a masterstroke of perverted genius, Satan has plunged America into chaos.  The interweaving of the lawless media—the anti-god Democratic party—the liberal university propaganda machine—the brainwashing film companies—the dysfunctional Republican Party, and last, but not least, Christianity Incorporated, are crushing the American Spirit.

It is a tapestry of travesty. 

If you thought the election of Donald Trump meant victory…think again.  Not only have we not won the war, we barely won a battle—the battle for America starts now.

Do not listen to any preacher who is doing a victory dance over America.

This is a moment of sober reflection not giddy, celebratory denial.  This is a time of deep soul searching— the emptying of self in the pursuit of divine guidance.

Remember the real victim in this war.  Remember who feels the greatest sense of betrayal.  It is middle Americans.  People who obey the rules, pay taxes and go to church to learn righteousness.

“Silly me”, they say.  “I elected you to repeal and replace Obamacare.  For 7 years you wrote bills to end it.  You get in power, and you do nothing!”

“How stupid am I”,they ask.  “I work three jobs to send my son to college and you melt his mind with self-pity, white guilt, no marketable skills, and a hatred for our faith.”

“Hey pastor”, they say. “I don’t go to church just to feel good—but to become good.”

Until now the war was surreal.  We had the luxury of couching it in hyper-spiritual terminology.  We got away with symbolic intercession.  We were fine with shadow boxing, prophetic flattery, and firing blanks.  But after today, this means war.

Let me be clear: this letter is not for everyone.  It is not for the worrier but the warrior. It is for a remnant.  It is for a holy core untiringly loyal to God.

It is a clarion call of hope.  With God, even the smallest group is the majority.  I don’t care who rejects this message.  I only care about the hearts who can declare without doubt…if God be for us, who can be against us?

How then do you begin to war for America? 

Begin by separating yourself.  The moment you realize you are an eagle in a farmyard full of turkeys…take off!  Swamp gas believers make being alone an improvement.

Once you are free of the toxic, social gravity of Christianity-lite, you will be reunited with forgotten treasures

You will recall your awesome God—a God worthy of total sacrifice—a God who made the weak strong, the confused clear, and common men and women legends.

You can start praying now as you have never prayed in the past.  “…You will not fast as you do this day, to make your voice heard on high.” -Isaiah 58:4. “…The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”-James 5:16

Remember why you are supporting and praying for our president.  Christians who jumped and the bandwagon during the election are bailing on him now.  Why?  They wanted the easy victory.  They didn’t want flak.

If you want to know why you should stand by Trump it’s easy—look at who hates him and why.   It’s not about Russia.  It’s not about his family.

They hate him because he stands with Israel.

They hate him because he is pro-life.

They hate him because he wants to close the border against those who would kill Americans. 

But, the final reason they hate him should embarrass us: They hate him because he stands with the church against her enemies.  Imagine that!  Believers refuse to defend him even as he is viciously attacked for defending us.

The battle for America starts now.  It starts with brave pastors who will transform safe pulpits into turrets of truth.

It starts with Senators and Representatives getting delivered of the need for self-preservation.

It starts with everyday believers like you and me—hearts set ablaze with a furnace of faith and love of country.

Yes, it is true that the battle has only started…but God has no even begun to fight.

BREAKING NEWS ABOUT RENO

No one needs to tell you how desperately we need to see God’s power today. Society’s morals are crumbling fast.  So many need Christ!  Our youth see the future with growing hopelessness.   We know so many who battle sickness.
In times like these we are right to ask and expect an act of God.  David said, “It is time for you to act oh God for they have regarded Your Word as void.”-Psalm 119:126.
I believe it is time.  That is why I am inviting you to join me at a special rally on Sunday night May 21st at 6 PM.  I will be at Spirit Filled Church 3175 Goldy Way, Sparks, NV 89434.
Way more than a regular meeting—this is a night of signs and wonders—a time of deliverance over the power of Satan—a night for lost souls to be saved by the power of the Gospel, and for fire to fall on the people of God.
I am praying and preparing a special message for this night.  I am submitting myself to the Holy Spirit like never before to see a free flow of healings.   We have witnessed medically confirmed miracles—from Christ—in people deemed hopeless by medical science.   We believe these kinds of miracles will happen May 21st.
Make your plans to be at this explosive meeting.  Bring someone who needs a miracle and come expecting your own healing.  Most of all, try to bring those who need Christ.
Finally, I want to ask one more thing of you: I am going into special prayer and I want to take your request with me. Matthew 18:19 says, “If any two of you shall agree as touching anything on earth, it will be done.”  Let’s agree for miracles and salvations.
To get on my prayer list for May 21st.  All I need is your first name and the miracle you need—or the first name of someone you are bringing and their need for healing, deliverance, or to be born again.
 All you have to do is call or text me at 1775 238 3473.  You can also email it to info@mariomurillo.org.   Every name and need will be prayer over. 
I can’t wait to see you at this amazing night.
