I MUST TELL YOU NO MATTER WHAT THE COST

When I began this blog, I could not see how it would succeed.  It was so far ahead of the curb it terrified me.  Total readership reached 4 million today.

My nerves were frazzled the first time I sat down to write something called a blog.  I argued with God.  I could not see how it would succeed. I knew there would be a firestorm over the things I was compelled to say.  I was so right about the firestorm.

Now millions read the blog in virtually every nation of the world.  Every day we are amazed at the impact of this little blog.

“Let me be the first to tell you”…that seems to be the theme of this little blog that could.

Check out this excerpt from the first time we spoke out years ago:

“The America we once knew has been taken away.  It happened overnight.   Because America has changed ministries must change the way that they relate to this new nation.”  Today, that is a common theme but when I first said it friends backed off, doors closed, and we were told that youth would abandon our meetings.  Instead, just the opposite happened–I mean about the youth.

When pastors were scared to death to speak…we did.  Now we see many starting to confront these issues.  In part, I know God used this blog to wake them up.  Paul said, “and most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.”  -Philippians 1: 14

This blog was one of the first to declare this among Spirit-filled people:  “Government has become our national God and that race now means more to some Christians than their Bible beliefs.   This new God is waging an incremental war on the Constitution.  The New York Times once referred to  the U.S. Constitution an evil document that we should give up on.”

This blog was one of the first to attack Obamacare as an assault on freedom of religion.  “It forces Christian Institutions to violate their religious convictions.  Cardinal Dolan the spiritual leader of the Archdiocese of New York calls it “an unwarranted, unprecedented radical intrusion.  The Obama White House met with Cardinal Dolan and several Bishops met with the White House to talk.   He said he was told to shut up and accept the mandate.'”

charade

This blog was among the first to preach it is time for the people of God to speak out on the danger of gun control.  5 years before David Hogg we said, “Mass shootings have become the excuse to take away our guns.  Obama wants absolute power. Mahatma Gandhi the great pacifist said, ‘Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.’  Thomas Jefferson and James Madison believed that the greatest threat to liberty was not foreign invasion or domestic unrest but rather a standing army and a militarized police force that had no fear of inflicting tyranny upon the people.”‘

Then we had the audacity to attack Hollywood when many celebrity pastors were schmoozing with Hollywood.  “If Government is our new God, Hollywood celebrities are our new pastors. Ben Stein asked, ‘Where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren’t allowed to worship God?  There are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.’ Hollywood is the most powerful propaganda machine in history and it has declared war on our faith.”  

Then we said, “Ministries must change how they relate to America.”  1 Samuel 10: 6 Says, “Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. 7 And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.

Then we took a position so radical we couldn’t see church pastors in the rear view mirror:

“Here is what I believe the occasion demands: The Holy Spirit is saying we can publicly oppose government tyranny while still maintaining a loving witness.  Acts 16: 37 But Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out.”  Paul had just led a jailer and several prisoners to Christ and now he turns around and exposes politicians who have broken the Roman Bill of Rights.”

“We must accept the fact that there is a new generation that has no Christian orientation. “And also all that generation was gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, who knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel.” Judges 2:10  “We must lay a new foundation of faith in America.  We must preach the central doctrines of our faith. The Bible needs to set fire to our sermons.”

bible fire

Then we said, “The big question now is what does the church do if Trump is president?  In the next few blogs I will open my heart to you about the radical steps the church must take to seize this greatest soul winning opportunity in our lifetime.  Once again, we must change the way we relate to government.  I know we need fresh fire.  Prayer, repentance and waiting for new orders are the keys for the American church…”

Now we reached 4 million readers and everyday our audience expands.  Here’s my promise…no success will tame this blog. We will still be the first to tell you many things…including the fact that censorship is going to intensify so you should register to get this blog.

THE GREATEST COLLISION OF THE AGES IS UPON US

The greatest collision of the ages is upon us.  Day after day, I have written the burden the Lord has placed upon me.  I admit it.  These blogs are designed to fervently rebuke the unrighteous religious leader.  On the other hand, this blog is a fervent encouragement to the righteous core who have held to their integrity.

But do you really want to know why God had me write to you day after day?  It’s because—despite all the darkness, perversion, division and violence—regardless of how low society has fallen—I believe—with atom of my being—an amazing act of God is on the horizon.

We are not just going to see a great falling away…but a great harvest.  A harvest beyond anything we can imagine.  It will begin in shocking location in a shocking way.  It will baffle believers as much as it does sinners.

Therefore I have been forced to write messages that target shallowness, compromise, hypocrisy, and gross negligence.  Gross negligence—because it wasn’t just what they did—it was when they did it.  As Satan unleashed his most destructive assault on the church, and the nation, they puddled around in false success leaving their post unguarded.  I know that’s a serious accusation…but I stand by it.

Driven by lust for growth, they wantonly closed their ears to the political disaster that dismantled faith and morality in America.  They should have been putting the Word of God in people.  They don’t awaken a hunger for revival.  They create evil appetites.  They weaken and distract the church from true revival.  They should hang their heads in shame for speeding up our demise.

To me, they are as guilty as those who voted to destroy marriage—they are as guilty as those who voted to force our taxes to fund abortions—they are as guilty as the architects of the God-hating mobs that roam our streets, teach in our universities, and people our institutions.

If they asked me how I could accuse them of such horrible crimes, I would simply ask them how could you waste critical time building a man-made entertainment center when you could have contended for a moral awakening?

Am I harsh?  Perhaps, but I am not alone.  Charles Finney said, “If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it.  If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it.”

On the other hand, this blog calls out a special remnant who are restless.  They don’t fit anywhere.   They don’t even understand why they have held to their integrity.

What is coming soon will be simultaneously glorious and humiliating.  Glorious to a company of people who, at this moment, labor in obscurity.  Suddenly they will be raised up.  At the same time many who are celebrity preachers who will suffer a great demotion.

The greatest harvest in the history of Christianity will be placed in the hands of special ones—faithful ones.   Already they are being chosen.  Already they have an appointment with destiny that will bring them into an unimaginable nearness to Jesus.

Those who are called to this will ask and receive things that prior generations could not imagine.  We are talking about awesome things!

They may not know who they are.  They don’t have an inkling of what is about to overtake them.

The Lord is testing them in obscurity.  It’s the only way that yields a vessel who can be trusted with great power.  They have been rejected for refusing to conform to the counterfeits.  God made them misfits.  Because He knew what was coming.

God not only knew the insanity of today was coming—He took steps to prepare a special relationship, that would produce special powers for His Children.

Jesus saw the future and uttered an explosive prayer: PRAY THE LORD OF THE HARVEST TO SEND WORKERS INTO THE HARVEST.  Notice He did not say ministers, or celebrities.  He said workers.  Many want the titles, attention, and rewards…but they don’t want to do the work.  A special core burns white hot with passion win lost souls and heal the sick.  They are hidden now but soon they will shine like the sun.

But there is another miracle awaiting this unique breed.  They will be allowed to see the world around them from the vantage point of the throne of God.  Ephesians 2: 6 says “and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus…”

What do you see from this vantage point?  You see that all the vile railings of our culture are not—in any way—a threat to the purposes of the almighty.  He knows the hollow arguments of the haters.  He is not moved by the mental monopoly of fake news and leftist social media.  He saw it all coming and prepared the response.

And that response has already begun in our crusades.  Altar calls that render the audience helpless before the power of God.  I have not seen this since the Jesus Movement!

The Lord of the universe is not poor.  He has pooled untold wealth to transfer it into the hands of trusted, proven, purified vessels whose only passion is to obey.

Finally, learn the truth of the slingshot. It may explain everything you are going through right now.

They are being hurt, wounded and brought to the brink of despair before their breakthrough.  In their pain and agony, they will cry out why—why am I being pulled away from my promise?  Why does each day take me further and further away from what You promised me?

Like a slingshot, God is deliberately building up the tension—the frustration—the fire to act…and at just the right moment, He will release you.   There is a great falling away coming and it will result in new voices and new anointing leading to the greatest harvest of souls in history.

 

 

BREAKING NEWS:  THE POWER OF GOD IS STARTING TO RADIATE ON THE STREETS OF RENO.  THE TENT GOES UP ON SEPTEMBER 19TH AT 700 SUTRO STREET IN RENO.  PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD TO ANYONE YOU KNOW WHO LIVES NEAR RENO THAT A MIGHTY OUTPOURING IS COMING AND TO JOIN US IN THE TENT FROM SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 23RD TO THE 28TH.

IT’S TIME FOR ME TO TALK WITH YOU ABOUT RENO NV

This is a major prayer alert.  The Big Ask.  That is what I am calling for.  I need you to pray the big ask…I need a deluge of prayer right now.  Ask big!  An electrifying opportunity has fallen on us.  This is no exaggeration.

As you read this, local churches, outreach ministries, Inner City Action from Stockton, along with Mario Murillo Ministries, are combing the Reno/Sparks Nevada region.   We are in the homeless camps—not just with food and clothing but a powerful witness.  We are inviting the entire community.  You can already see our posters in store windows. We are handing out tens of thousands of cards.

Are the windows of heaven opening over Reno and Sparks Nevada?   A growing number of local leaders sense it.  There’s something special about this moment.  There are powerful indicators:  The region has been bathed in prayer—we saw unprecedented support and unity at our leader’s meeting August 4th—the city has given us a prime site in the heart of downtown Reno. 

Now let me talk to you about that prime site: It’s 700 Sutro Street. Our tent will be visible from interstate 80.  That means anyone who drives through Reno will see our tent.  Our tent will cover most of the lot, so the city has given us permission to use large parking lots that surround the site. FAVOR!

Teams of intercessors will be walking this sacred ground between now and the start of our Living Proof Crusade.  They will ask for signs and wonders to explode on the people.  They will ask that cars driving past will feel the tractor beam of God’s love, pull off the interstate and come in the tent.  Please agree with us for mighty miracles!

 

Here’s the most urgent part of my letter:  It is a fact of war that when armies are stymied, a breakthrough anywhere can turn the tide of the war.  Just the report of a decisive victory anywhere can ignite the morale of an entire army.

This means that even if you don’t live anywhere near Reno you need to pray fervently for this outreach.  It does not matter in which city the American Awakening starts.  Lord, just let it start!

Now I am talking to anyone who lives near the Reno/Sparks region.  Christians have evangelized for thousands of years.  In that time, knowledge and technology has exploded.  Yet, two forces remain omnipotent: prayer and the personal invitation.

I know, because I have won souls for over 50 years, starting at U.C. Berkeley and in the Bay Area.  Nothing will ever replace the power of prayer, and word of mouth.  I can’t stress this enough: pray and bring someone to the tent!

Mark 6: 55 says, “they ran through that whole surrounding region and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was.” That last phrase says it all!

Under the tent, there will be wonderful music, powerful messages and surprises.  But, the greatest reason to bring people is because we know Jesus will be there.

All seats are free.  Remember, we’ll start at 6 PM on Sunday and at 7 PM Monday-Friday.  Let’s us pray for those you are bringing for healing or deliverance.  Call us at 775 238 3473.   I can’t wait to see you at the tent and I can’t wait to tell our partners across America what is happening under the tent!  -Mario Murillo

P.S.  If you want to volunteer for any of the many opportunities to help us with this outreach please call us at 775 238 3473 or click here to contact us  mariomurillo.org

 

THE AMERICAN CHURCH STILL THINKS THIS IS A GAME

Soul-sucking disaster upon disaster, and yet America does not pray. But, I get why. The word of God says, “the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God…”1 Corinthians 2: 14.   What I don’t get is how the American church can still think this is a game.

The world is on fire.   Because of man, and nature—Earth is ready to explode.   Meanwhile the church—like a party on the deck of the Titanic—pats herself on the back for her “big events.”

Nothing has stopped—or even slowed down—America’s depravity.   We have spent more money, time, and talent than ever—yet the church never asks, why we keep doing things that don’t work?

When the church

-Feeds a sick nation, a sick gospel, that does not deliver from evil, and worse, makes the already converted weaker, we must think it is a game.

-When the enemy is no longer the works of Satan, but the unsuccessful life—we are playing a game.   We must return to the Bible.  The Bible needs to set fire to our sermons.

Many of my Spirit-filled acquaintances are also playing games.  Facebook is like a Petri dish for Pentecostals.  In one compressed medium, you witness the banal bacteria that excites Charismatics today. Witness the games:

-Titles like Prophet and Apostle are flung around indiscriminately.  Every garish emotional experience is hawked as being from God.  One “prophet” says he went back in time and visited Moses.  Who of us has not scratched our heads at preachers, in ill-fitting jeans, live-streaming from a near-empty church, that they are the vessel of the hour?

– “conferences promise that you will get “a word from God” for a fee… as if the Holy Spirit was On Demand.  Or they offer formulas to “activate” blessings.  This is New Age philosophy.  God is not a force to manipulate—He is an awesome person to be adored and obeyed.  Gift arrive, as the Spirit wills, to hearts broken—emptied of self—for the lost, the poor, and the forsaken.

-Everything seems based on angelic visitations, dreams, visions and trips to heaven.  Most of our time is spent on these “experiences” and not on rock-solid instruction from the Word of God.

I believe in dreams, prophecy, healing, angels and visions.   But if they are from God they will drive us to the front line of the culture and not into emotional safe zones.   “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty to the tearing down of strongholds.” -2 Corinthians 10:4    We are nowhere near strongholds because we think it’s a game.

Beloved, this is not a game.  Christians toying with materialism, celebrity, alcohol, compromise and carnality spell doom for America.   Google, Facebook, Apple, YouTube and the rest of Silicon Valley threaten to pull the plug on churches.  Every day they inch closer to censorship.  Will your zany videos matter if no one can see them?

Our preaching ricochets off a culture careening into indescribable debauchery.  Soon it will illegal to preach the doctrines you are now ignoring.  What a horror!  Pastor you wake up one day with remorse over the truths you ignored—but now they’re banned.

Mario is there any hope?  My hope in God’s fierce love for America.  He will not let this nation go without a fierce fight.  My hope is in some of the last people you’d expect.

 

My hope is in the discouraged preacher.  Honest-to-God preachers who feel like fools when they see the runaway success of compromise.  Psalm 73:12 says, “Behold, these are the ungodly, who are always at ease; They increase in riches. 13 Surely, I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocence. 14 For all day long I have been plagued, and chastened every morning.”

My hope is in those who chose to fail honestly rather than succeed artificially.

Are you struggling with decreasing numbers and falling finances, even as you present a Christ-centered, Bible based pulpit?   God sees you! Hold on just a little longer.  Fire is coming that will cause a stampede and you won’t know where to put the crowds.

My hope is in the Christian nobodies.  Have you failed?  Did man take away your pulpit?  Get ready…your brokenness is a key to the fire of God in this hour.  A nationwide hunger for reality is about to make shallowness obsolete.

Are you a teacher, business person, police officer or stay at home mom?  Do you burn with a passion for your community?  Get ready for vision and anointing right where you live!

The hour is so dangerous that God must bring down religious empires and promote others to great power and influence.  Satan is also playing games.  I believe that God—through the last people we expect—is about to teach Satan what war really looks like.

TEARING DOWN STRONGHOLDS OF DEMONS

What can we do about the demons that are strangling America?  Can we dismantle their ramparts?  They have brought bitter division, mass addiction, and total deception.  Can we stop them?  Not only can we, it is our sworn duty to tear them down.

The Bible says “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God…2 Corinthians 10:4,5

The Bible says “cast down every high thing.”  Most preaching and teaching today leaves the impression there is very little we can do.  But that begs a question…

If we can’t tear down strongholds isn’t God is guilty of child abuse on a grand scale?  He is guilty of letting Paul awaken a deep hope that can never be fulfilled.  The whole point of 2 Corinthians 10: 4 and 5 was to provoke the church to take up the mighty weapons of God.

 

Want to know why there is so little preached about actually taking ground back from the devil?  Let me give an example.   Remember the woman who shot up the Youtube offices?   Her story will be buried because it doesn’t advance the narrative of the left.  She had Muslim background.  She was enraged over Youtube’s censorship and bias.   Protecting Islam, and hiding their nationwide censorship is a priority.

Likewise, there are two elements in the modern church that must silence the message of victory over demons to stay in business.  They are the therapeutic church, and the gloom and doom church.

The therapeutic church must focus on happy talk and self-fulfillment.  Shaking up their comfort zones with talk of warfare threatens attendance.  To survive, they must distract Christians to lesser goals and lower living.  They are guilty of unwittingly helping the devil to keep the army of God powerless.

Gloom and doom preachers keep the church on the defensive by telling them to take cover.  Fear sells books, conspiracy theories sell survival, not revival.  Gloom and doom prophets—like good democrats—must cheer on global domination, global warming and global disasters to keep Christians buying.  They do not equip you to confront and conquer evil because they don’t believe it’s possible.

Now I want to make you mad—not just mad—I want you to be infuriated at what Satan has done to America.  He has built a machine—an evil, wicked, massive machine. Facebook, Google, Youtube and Twitter are working parts of this hideous mechanism.  Other components include most of the print press and news media.

Another tentacle of this device is on campus.  It’s there to poison young minds.  The toxic cloud of indoctrination goes all the way down to grammar schools robbing children of their innocence.

The machine hates Christianity.  It hates Israel.  It hates the family and every form of Biblical truth.  All subtly is gone.  The Marxist insanity once whispered in back alleys now struts its stuff on main street.

So many preachers today remind us, “it’s all in God’s hands.” While that is a comforting truth it is not the one we need right now.  That has been used to make Christians passive.

But everywhere you look in the Bible it is against passivity and advocates action: “fight the good fight of faith…” “Endure hardness as a good soldier…” “Resist the devil…” “Take the sword of the Spirit…”

God has chosen to act in answer to prayer.  He waits until His people rise and take their rightful place in the arena of battle.  Young David saw the stalemate.  No one challenged Goliath.  David couldn’t stand it. He offered himself to God.  God is looking for someone like that today—someone who can’t live with evil, who can’t stomach the perversion, and is enraged to see God dishonored.  Someone God can use to turn the tide of America.

If there is one question this blog asks it is this:  Are you so filled with holy rage that you are willing to lay down your life in order to provide God with an opportunity to vindicate His name before this blasphemous generation?

 

Mario what should I do?

-Pray different than you do now.  Stand between heaven and earth as a true intercessor.  Invoke the Name above all Names to get to the very Throne of God with your petition.  Do it the way Moses raised the rod of Aaron over the battle. When you pray, pray violently, pray exactingly, detailing the damage you want done and where you want it done. By the Spirit, speak directly to evil powers. Call them out and cast them down.

-Talk about God different than you do now.  Why should you apologize?  What you have works.  What they have doesn’t work.  Arm yourself with your testimony and the blood of the Lamb.  Challenge the double standard.  Why is Jesus the only thing this supposedly open-minded generation won’t talk about.

-Plan events that the Holy Spirit can use to bring revival.  Azusa Street was a small effort that exploded into unimaginable proportions.  How dare anyone think that your small meeting can’t be used in a massive way?

There are many more things we can do to get out of fear and get into a great victory.  Here is the great promise : When God sees someone take up the mighty weapons of God—in the Name of Jesus—and attempt the impossible—God will muster all of the resources of heaven to bring that someone total victory.

WHY THE WORST MESSAGE DROWNS OUT THE BEST

Why does the left drown out opposing views?   Why do they curse, chant, spout catch phrases, and call people racists instead of calmly making their case?  Because they have no case.

Here is a simple summary of the left: We want to force you to do something that has never worked.  Sanctuary cities, marijuana, needle programs, socialized medicine, socialized anything, transgender bathrooms, have all created more chaos than they have solved.  They say it is chaos for the greater good—a greater good that has never materialized. Never ever.

The left always finds a cure worse than the disease.  They trade one form of racism for another.  They create new injustice to replace the old injustice.

The young are easy prey for the left.  If you claim an ideal they will listen.  Many do not have enough life experience to understand why something just won’t work.  Bernie Sanders—who was once kicked out a commune for refusing to work—tells them: “I will make the government give you free stuff.”   Listen dear college student…anything the government gives you was taken from someone else. Wait till it’s your turn to be taken.

 

Marxism—the matrix of leftist thought—has slaughtered over one hundred million people.  Yet and still, the Marxist will tell you those dictators weren’t real Marxists.  However, Marxism has never taken root in a nation without genocide.  Every leftist revolution has resorted to tyranny.

Packaging is everything when your product doesn’t work.  Slick versions of Marxism abound.  Make it trendy so Hollywood actors and late night comedians—those bastions of clear thinking—will want to identify with it.  Replace sound arguments with punchlines and dim witty academy award acceptance speeches.   Noise is essential to the survival of a lie.

The worst message is being presented in the best way, while the best message is being presented in the worst way.  Leftists proudly scream lies while believers mumble the truth.

How should the Gospel of Jesus Christ be preached in modern sophisticated society?  Here’s a better question: Why is the Gospel exploding in the developing world while it languishes here?  I will tell you why, and when I do, most will say “that will never work here.”  Here is what they do:

-They preach with accompanying signs and wonders.

-They demand total repentance and allegiance to Christ.

-They insist new disciples should be baptized in the Holy Spirit.

-They lead converts into church families that are more a movement than a congregation.

Most of our preachers are so insecure about saying what Jesus said, they present the most diluted homily that could be still called Christian.  They are terrified to declare the parts of the Gospel that deliver the soul and liberate the heart.

Those preachers who lead revivals in jungles and wastelands believe they are declaring the best message mankind has ever heard.

Still, people say it will never work here.  I say, let’s find out!  Why not have meetings full of fire, raw preaching and real miracles?  Why not tell the snowflakes, cupcakes, hipsters and wannabe revolutionaries about the real Jesus with real power?  It won’t work?  Let’s find out!

Corinth must have seemed a place that demanded a stylish and intellectual Gospel.   Why else would Paul admit he overcame the temptation to “come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God.”  Instead, he said, “my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.”

It is time for the American Church—along with the Churches in Europe, Australia, Japan, and every other developed nation being targeted by the leftist delusion—to shed the timid Gospel and roar righteousness.

The full Gospel is not just for poor villages and uneducated people groups. The message that works in Nigeria will work in New York.  The Gospel that works in the Philippines will work in San Francisco, Tokyo, London, and Paris.

Paul wrote a book named for the most cultured, educated, and powerful city on earth—Rome.  It was to the saints of that legendary city that he wrote: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.”

WHY WE HAVE HOPE FOR AMERICA

Let us tell you why we have hope for America.  As ministers of the Gospel we must take stands that are not popular.  Often, we must warn, correct, and give out bad news.  There is no way around the fact that many things threaten our faith and our freedom.  But there is also hope—hope for America.

We see the mighty hand of God working in wondrous ways—even in this dark time.  When we pray, we feel the fierce love of God for America.  We can hear Him saying, “hold on, I have not yet begun to fight for America.”  We see signs that encourage our faith.  We refuse to let anything steal our joy as we travel this great nation for Christ.  Let us give you the reasons for our hope.

Something supernatural is in our soil.  Michael Medved has identified 16 times America should have been destroyed but was spared at the last moment.  However, it is the way America was saved that is mind-boggling.  Relief literally came out of nowhere.Our hope is that God finishes what He starts.  He established this nation with an impossible victory over Britain.  He has repeated His acts of sovereign mercy again, and again.  Even when things looked much worse than today—and we didn’t deserve it—God turned circumstances in our favor and turned our hearts back to Him.  That is our hope.

Millions are praying for revival.  If Abraham’s math is correct, God would have saved Sodom and Gomorrah if just 12 righteous were found.  Despite the widespread number of lukewarm believers and watered-down preaching—there is a vibrant core of Christians who are claiming our nation through fervent intercession.  In fact, Daniel stood alone in prayer and fasting and forced the heart of King Cyrus to release Israel.  Millions are praying.  That corporate cry is not being ignored.

Extremes in the media and other anti-God agencies are backfiring.  The bias against God has been in the media for decades. The difference now is the towering overreach—the blatant bias—the deranged hatred is so intense they can’t hide it.  Time was, they could shape public opinion and call it news.  In their current melt down, they report banalities and keep reporting them even after they are proven false.  The audience looks on with shock and pity and asks, “where is the truth?”

The young are turning to Christ. The great vacuum created by leftist ideology leaves young souls groping for new life.  We see young souls coming forward from all over the tent.  They come quickly, they come forcefully, they come for nothing less than Jesus.   They dispel the lies Satan is saying about this generation.  When it comes to young people, it doesn’t take long for a small fire to grow into a widespread movement.

Signs, wonders and miracles are appearing in convincing scriptural order.  Miracles are not new.  Healings have been with us all along.  The difference now is they are being demonstrated in greater measure and with stronger Bible based preaching.  This makes them more contagious to the lost and more devastating to the enemy.

There you have it…our great hope for America.  There is no denying it will be a hard battle.  But if God be for us who can be against us?  God bless you, Mario and Mechelle Murillo
