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.

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!

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!

Revival or Civil War?

Trump is being investigated.  They claim he colluded with the Russians.  They claim he rigged an election.  Here is the hair pulling part of this:  We now know—without an investigation—Hillary did both of those things.

Revival or Civil War?

By Mario Murillo

After months of digging, the special prosecutor has turned up nothing linking Trump to any Russian, to any rigging, to any…anything.   Yet, investigators continue to claim they are about to find something.

Meanwhile, a gigantic something—the mastodon in the room—is ignored.  They simply refuse to investigate Hillary Clinton.  Hillary is so smug, that to this hour, she continues to accuse Trump collusion and rigging.

What has possessed the political elite to alter reality?  What mental defect has gripped the fake new media that they can do this without any pang of conscience?  How can they disregard the destruction they are heaping on America?  The focus of this blog is not Hillary but how the treatment of this situation highlights our moral disaster.  The Bible tells us how we got to this point.

Jesus said, “they strain at a gnat and swallow a camel.”  But another Bible verse hits even closer to home.  Isaiah 5:20 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

I bring up Hillary because she is symptomatic of what is killing the American soul.  It is a madness that is bringing us to the brink of civil war.  Indeed, Isaiah was warning those who call evil good and good evil of something very perilous: After you sin long enough, God judges you with a mind that reverses right and wrong, good and evil and yes, sanity and insanity.

You need to read all of Isaiah Chapter 5.  It is an eerie parallel to America right now.  Matthew Henry said about Isaiah 5, “In this chapter the prophet, in God’s name, shows the people of God their transgressions, even the house of Jacob their sins, and the judgments which were likely to be brought upon them for their sins…Covetousness, and greediness of worldly wealth, which shall be punished with famine (v. 8-10) 2. Rioting, revelling, and drunkenness (v. 11v. 12v. 22v. 23), which shall be punished with captivity and all the miseries that attend it (v. 13-17). Presumption in sin, and defying the justice of God (v. 18v. 19). Confounding the distinctions between virtue and vice, and so undermining the principles of religion (v. 20). Self-conceit (v. 21). Perverting justice, for which, and the other instances of reigning wickedness among them, a great and general desolation in threatened, which should lay all waste (v. 24v. 25), and which should be effected by a foreign invasion.”

I am convinced that America is down to 2 options:  Revival or Civil war.  Yes, you heard me right.  Millions of Americans staunchly support Trump—though they have been beaten into silence they are fervent in their commitment to our president.

They see injustice not only directed at Trump, but at their faith, their values, freedoms and their loved ones.  They understand political correctness to be the cancer of our times.

They see a small, vocal, activist cadre controlling most of what we see and hear.  They see free speech fading—they see morals vanishing—they see tyranny as Antifa is declaring violent warfare on American citizens.

With all my might, in this explosive hour, I am compelling everyone who will listen that revival is something that should be uniting every Christian.  The urgency of national repentance cannot be over stated—neither can the power of God.

What I am trying to say, in this blog, is that the mindset, that reverses light and darkness, good and evil has overtaken us because of our wickedness.

If we do not harness the anger of millions fed up with all of the perversion of truth—if we do not channel it into a moral awakening—it will lead to civil disruption on a scale too terrible to describe.

Let us drop all of our foolish distractions and provoke fervent prayer—church gatherings full of fire and love, pulpits peopled by preachers who thunder unvarnished truth and let the chips fall where they may.

Time is almost up.  A fuse is about to be lit.  God help us to light the right one.

HOLY SPIRIT YOU’RE NOT WELCOME HERE

We sing “Holy Spirit You are welcome here,” but the truth is He is not at all welcome.  He has no say in our activities.  He has been evicted from His rightful place.

We can and should have power.  We should be winning millions.   Medically confirmed healings should be a norm.  Hardened sinners should be collapse before the might of God’s presence in our meetings.

What makes our present defeat, so vexing, is that it is so unnecessary.   We have the best message in the world.  Everything hurting our nation can be healed by the Holy Spirit. There is no raging debate today that is not solved by the Gospel.  There is no injustice that cannot be cured by Christ.

Instead, we put our worst foot forward.  We teach light and airy, even silly things—things that not only bounce off the unchurched—they weaken the churched.

We sing “Holy Spirit You are welcome here,” but the truth is He is not at all welcome.  He has no say in our activities.  He has been evicted from His rightful place.

When you finally see who the Holy Spirit is, and what His active role should be…our current condition will horrify you.

OUTPOURING AT WARRIOR FEST WITH PERRY STONE

Jesus said in John 16:7 “Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. 8 And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 of sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; 11 of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.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. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. 15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore, I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.”

All church life must flow out of the Holy Spirit.  He is the leader of the worldwide conviction of sin and righteousness. He is our key to decode a culture.  Our relevance is from Him.  Our organizational structure is by Him.   He is the exclusive purveyor of everything Jesus must give earth.

GREAT HARVEST OF SOULS IN SAN BERNARDINO CA

Here are just two examples of how practical dependency on the Holy Spirit in the early church solved massive crisis:

“As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” -Acts 13:2

-“For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things…-Acts 15:28

The power and blessing of those two Spirit-born strategies continues to this hour.  The first, created the New Testament Churches—hence the New Testament.  The second, is the reason we have one and not two New Testaments.  Without this guidance, the controversy would have led to a Jewish New Testament and a Gentile New Testament.

It is easy to point the finger at mega churches.  We can say they are muscle-bound with marketing and have little impact on America’s destruction.  However, many of my Spirit-filled brothers and sisters are also guilty of gross sins against the Holy Spirit.  (They may be even worse sins because they include jaw-dropping hypocrisy).  Here are some of their crimes:

They are guilty of dropping the God card.   When Charismatic leaders ban the gifts of the Spirit from operating and say God told them to do it—it is a sin against Jesus.  When leaders become territorial and refuse to work with other leaders to win souls in their city and blame God, they quench the Holy Spirit.

They drop the God card if they make intercessory prayer and the prophetic, open-ended excuses not to reach out.  How many spirit-filled gatherings make no appeal for souls to be saved?  Answer: Almost all of them.  How can this be God?

OUR FIRST LIVING PROOF TENT CRUSADE IN FRESNO, CA  OCTOBER 22, 2017

They turn weapons into toys:  2 Corinthians 10:3 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 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…”

Have you ever seen anything more cringe-worthy than a convention of grownups dressed in medieval and gothic costumes playing Dungeons and Dragons with Styrofoam swords?  Sadly, yes.

The top cringe is reserved for spirit-filled meetings where weapons—meant for strongholds of Satan—are squandered on bored saints lusting for yet another emotional experience.  Their shenanigans are blamed on the Holy Spirit.  Most are just self-centered believers binging on fantasy blessings.

I can’t shake the image of an army removing all the bullets, to play bang-bang in the barracks.   But what a crime to do it with gifts designed to clean out crack houses.

If you are famished for the true work of the Holy Spirt—if you are desperate for a national miracle—if you can let God X-ray your heart…the Holy Spirit is waiting for you.  Here is what you need to know.

You had to learn not to trust the Holy Spirit.  That statement is saturated with conviction and hope.  Tragically, church life often leads away from the Holy Spirit.  However, the hopeful part is, you learned not to trust which means all you must do is go back to the simple days when you were truly led of the Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is seeking people to use on a massive scale.  At this moment, Mario Murillo Ministries is struggling to respond to all the open doors.  We are watching the promise of widespread harvest fulfilled right before our eyes.   There are many openings right now for effective ministry.

The Holy Spirit seeks workers.   Matthew 9: 37 “Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

The Holy Spirit is looking for workers—not self-promoted apostles, prophets, and ozone warriors.  Every leader wants this but doesn’t realize it:  you want workers—people who will do work and not posture about their spiritual rank.  We are teeming with people who want recognition but won’t lift a finger for the real work.

Jesus’ prayer revealed the harvest, targeted the harvest and prayed for workers to go to the harvest.   When you do not welcome the Holy Spirit’s passion for the lost—you do not welcome Him.

REVIVAL THAT MATTERS

Many of the things the church is doing today simply do not matter.  I am not saying they are not good, or impressive or successful—I am saying they will not save the nation, and therefore, they do not matter.

We know the times are evil.  What can we do about it?  That’s the number one question I get.  My answer is, we need stop toying, speculating and paying lip service to revival.  We need to seize a revival that matters.

But the real culprit today is false revival.  There is untold damage when we take a good meeting and marketing it as revival.  To call a good meeting revival is like filling a bath tub with salt water and calling it the Pacific Ocean.

I am not the one telling you your good meeting is not revival—history, and our culture tell you.  History says revival overflows church walls and makes deep impacts on society.  That is not happening.   When our culture swats away our church meetings and continues to careen in deeper wickedness—it’s telling us we are not in revival.

There is one thing—above all others—that is stopping true revival: We can’t find a pure motive.  We want it for all the wrong reasons.  If revival is our ticket to get church growth, emotional experiences, self-promotion, formulas, and wealth, our prayers are like nuclear waste to God.

The most famous verse on revival begins with a huge IF:  2 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 will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

IF you truly yearn for the miracle that would stop America’s slide toward oblivion—IF you wish for an act of the Holy Spirit so real and widespread that it impacts, crime, injustice, addiction, and despair—then listen to this lesson from history:

In 1904, American leaders were enthralled by the revival in Wales.  Hundreds of thousands were converted, and the morals of the nation were transformed.  They wanted a revival like that in America.  But they tried to buy it.

These enterprising pastors and businessmen invested in massive campaigns.  They were dismal failures.  So much so, that the very concept of revival fell into disfavor.

Two years later, they realized their mistake.  Widespread brokenness gripped leaders.  Now, aided by a pure motive they cried out and heaven heard them.   One of the catalysts to this awakening was James Burns.

James Burns wrote a powerful book at the time entitled “Revival, Their Laws and Leaders” In 1909 he said, “To the church, a revival means humiliation, a bitter knowledge of unworthiness and an open and humiliating confession of sin on the part of her ministers and people. It is not the easy and glorious thing many think it to be, who imagine it fills pews and reinstates the church in power and authority.

 “It comes to scorch before it heals; it comes to condemn ministers and people for their unfaithful witness, for their selfish living, for their neglect of the cross, and to call them to daily renunciation, to an evangelical poverty and to a deep and daily consecration. That is why a revival has ever been unpopular with large numbers within the church. Because it says nothing to them of power such as they have learned to love, or of ease, or of success; it accuses them of sin, it tells them they are dead, it calls them to awake, to renounce the world and to follow Christ.”

America, at last, had found a pure motive for revival. New York, Chicago, Los Angeles (Azusa Street), and many other cities saw amazing things.  Denver, Colorado, and Portland, Oregon (Which are bastions of marijuana, atheism and runaway liberalism today) shut down businesses at noon so everyone could go and pray.  Millions went to prayer everyday across America.

Until our knees buckle beneath the horror of our nation’s sin and the blasphemy of our cheap grace fad our request for revival will be denied.  On the other hand, there is a great hope.

Two things happened to me that forever killed my doubts about revival.  One was Matthew 12: 20 A bruised reed He will not break, And smoking flax He will not quench,
Till He sends forth justice to victory.”  The other was when I was standing at the beach.

Jesus will not snuff out the least flicker of revival.  When anyone asks for revival from a pure heart, God says yes and begins the process.  He takes you at your word.  As I stood on the beach the gentle foam of the ocean lapped over my toes.  The voice of the Lord said, “this gentle wave is the cousin of the tsunami.”

The smallest flame in the smallest church will not be quenched by Jesus.  Given the proper opportunity, the Spirit of God will fan it into a raging fire of righteousness.  The gentlest wave can grow into a tidal wave before anyone who simply hosts God’s presence, obeys His step by step orders, and refuses to abuse what God is doing among them.

These two truths are exploding with me now.  I want them to blow up in your spirit.  exploded within me.  You really want revival?  Then what are you waiting for?

When Abraham Lincoln Told America to Pray and Repent

“Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!  It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.”

 

By the President of the United States of America.

A Proclamation.

Whereas, the Senate of the United States, devoutly recognizing the Supreme Authority and just Government of Almighty God, in all the affairs of men and of nations, has, by a resolution, requested the President to designate and set apart a day for National prayer and humiliation.

And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon; and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.

And, insomuch as we know that, by His divine law, nations like individuals are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but a punishment, inflicted upon us, for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole People? We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

It’s a testament to how far we have fallen.  Lincoln’s letter would be deemed a hate crime today.  His wise plea would be met with rage and howling disdain.  Every talk show host would eviscerate it.  Hollywood would have more anger over this letter than they do over Harvey Weinstein.  Professors would call it a tool for the white man to keep people of color on the plantation.

Psychiatrists, citing the 25th Amendment, would scream for the mentally unfit Lincoln to be removed from office.  He would be accused of being a climate change denier for omitting references to the environment.  He would be slurred as Islamophobic for praying to the Christian God.  In short, this document would be banned today. 

Even in the face of unequaled natural disasters, violence, division and danger, the elite of our nation not only refuse to pray, they ridicule those who wish to repent.  This is how far from sanity we have drifted.  May God have mercy on our wicked minds.  

-Mario Murillo

It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.

Now, therefore, in compliance with the request, and fully concurring in the views of the Senate, I do, by this my proclamation, designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th. day of April, 1863, as a day of national humiliation, fasting and prayer. And I do hereby request all the People to abstain, on that day, from their ordinary secular pursuits, and to unite, at their several places of public worship and their respective homes, in keeping the day holy to the Lord, and devoted to the humble discharge of the religious duties proper to that solemn occasion.

All this being done, in sincerity and truth, let us then rest humbly in the hope authorized by the Divine teachings, that the united cry of the Nation will be heard on high, and answered with blessings, no less than the pardon of our national sins, and the restoration of our now divided and suffering Country, to its former happy condition of unity and peace.

In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this thirtieth day of March, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the eighty seventh.

William H. Seward, Secretary of State.

 

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!

It’s just not right

There is no version of kneeling during the national anthem that is right.  Of course, you have the right to do it, but it is just not right.  I raised my son to know the difference between civil and moral law—to know what you have a right to do—and the right thing to do.

It’s just not right

There is no version of kneeling during the national anthem that is right.  Of course, you have the right to do it, but it is just not right.  I raised my son to know the difference between civil and moral law—to know what you have a right to do—and the right thing to do.

Men, you have the right to leave your wife of 30 years, hook up with a bimbo and ignore your children for the rest of your life.  It’s just not right.  You have the right to look at porn but it’s just not right.  You have the right to drop F bombs in front of women, cut in line, and pass gas in an elevator.  It’s just not right.

You kneelers, in the NFL are clueless about how you look.  You have no idea how deeply you have offended tens of millions of Americans of all races.  You can’t image how impossible it is—for any reasonable, hard-working American—to see you coddled, multi-millionaires, as oppressed victims.

But Mario, I am trying to bring attention to injustice and racism.  For real?  By attacking the very symbol of our fight against those things?  By doing it in front the families whose loved ones  paid with their lives to defend the flag?

You have have not shown how, such a mindless offensive act, advances the cause of racial justice.  The only conversation you have started is about boorish behavior.  Of course, the usual suspects on the left will hail your tantrums.  They want chaos no matter what package it arrives in. 

And of course, you are darlings of the entertainment industry who are so delirious with Trump derangement syndrome that any shot at the president is welcomed. 

Don’t let the current fever fool you.  When it all settles, and God-fearing, patriotic Americans get their say, and reason prevails, you, the cheese will stand alone.  So let me ask you:

-If it is police brutality you are targeting why not kneel in front a police station? 

-If lives are what you care about, how about kneeling in front of a crack house?

-If lives matter then kneel to the reality of devastating black on black violence.

Even the near-sighted can see how many of you “protest” in the bubble of celebrity, and then escape in fine cars to your mansions.

Yes, I give Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys half credit—but his act of kneeling with the players before the anthem is like the parent that says, “I know you are going to smoke, so let’s smoke together on the porch.”

Senator Dan Quayle once compared himself to John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States during a debate with Senator Lloyd Bentsen.  Bentsen replied, “Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy. I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you’re no Jack Kennedy.

I lived in Berkeley in the 70’s I saw true protesters with true courage force the nation to face issues.  They sacrificed.  I knew these protesters and you kneelers…are not those protesters.
