Mighty Warrior: A word from the Lord for you.

You were led into a relationship with Jesus where you no longer fit in anywhere.  What thrilled others left you scratching your head, wondering how they could be so easily satisfied.
You feel the evil and the blasphemy.  You are grieved to see God’s name and honor smeared both inside and outside the church.  You wondered “how long Lord?”  How long before I can take up the sword of the Lord and bring wrath down on demons?
You have wondered what is happening to you.  It seems that everything the enemy has is being thrown at you.  Many have pulled away from you—including those you have trusted for years—not understanding the path that you have chosen.
People made big promises to you that turned out to be a puff of smoke.  You were left empty at the very moment you believed a great breakthrough was coming.
God promised you something when you began this journey; but now it all seems like a cruel fantasy.  You have cried to the Lord “why have you awakened this hope in me if this will never come to pass.”  You dared not even tell your family and closest friends your true feelings.
Do you want to understand what is happening to you right now?  While you weren’t looking, God reached down and did important work inside you. God tested you in the furnace for holy reasons.
A great self-emptying is in progress.  Heaven is asking questions about you and the furnace is answering them.
-He is making you someone can be trusted with great influence and power.
-He is making you someone who has freely received and will freely give.
-He is making you someone who will be so focused and determined that you will never quit.
-He is making you someone who obeys only God—who only goes forth at the command of God—who gives all credit and glory to God.
Let not the darkness of this hour rush your preparation.  Fear not!  It will not be too late by the time of your breakthrough.
Is this the darkest it has ever been?  Does it seem it can get no worse?  Then beloved, consider the intensity of this attack as a sign that your breakthrough is at hand…the devil saves the worst for last, but God saves the best for last.
Isaiah 55: 8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
10 “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater,
11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
12 “For you shall go out with joy,
And be led out with peace;
The mountains and the hills
Shall break forth into singing before you,
And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree,
And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree;
And it shall be to the Lord for a name,
For an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”

 

 

 

 

Punishing church members because they want a move of God

A growing number of Christians feel their church is doing a lot of things that don’t matter.  Even successful programs don’t matter to them.  They believe only a move of God can save us now.
They believe we have no time to play games.  They are frustrated that church is catering to the lukewarm members.  Most of all, they feel that they are being punished for wanting a move of God.
I want to direct myself toward leaders who are guilty of correcting members who yearn for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  You’ve got it totally backwards.  Those who are hungry for a move of God are the best thing that ever happened to your church.
If you wounded a hungry saint’s heart, it was a spectacular mistake.  They, and not the lukewarm, should be setting the tone for your church.
Somewhere, we got the idea—I believe it came from the pit of hell—that exuberant worship, preaching with unction and conviction, fiery prayer meetings, and deliberate soul winning are the “old ways.”

They are not old ways—they are timeless ways.  In fact, they transcend time.  They are the chosen weapons.
You never made Satan smile wider than when you punished someone in your congregation for wanting a move of God.
Where did you get the idea that a move of God was a bad thing?  Let me guess…you heard it from a Bible College professor who can’t do it, therefore he teaches.  Or you got from a church growth expert.  You can’t fool me.  I have read those manuals.  Some even tell you to run the people out who desire an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
The best people in the church love this verse: 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “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.”  They refer to it often.
They yearn for the miracle that will stop America’s slide toward oblivion—they wish for an act of the Holy Spirit so real and widespread that it impacts, crime, injustice, addiction, and despair.
You may be punishing people God is stirring.  You may be trying to put out a flame that God lit in their heart.
I think I know the biggest reason you may be punishing people who seek revival:  You doubt it can happen.  You doubt it is for today.  Listen carefully to me: not only can God do it…the fact that your people are being stirred is a sign that God is trying to start revival fire.
Here’s what forever killed my doubts about revival.  Matthew 12: 20 A bruised reed He will not break, And smoking flax He will not quench, Till He sends forth justice to victory.”
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.
 The first step is to stop punishing those wonderful people who are hungry for the Holy Spirit to fall on your church.

Starting a righteous rebellion against gloom and doom

 

Righeous RebellionStarting a righteous rebellion against gloom and doom

By Mario Murillo

What do some gloom and doom preachers and some prosperity preachers have in common?   As opposite as their teachings may seem—they have this in common:  they are both teaching Christians to hide.  They are both influencing believers to live dangerously below their potential.  They are both seducing the army of God away from an attack on evil.

The gloom and doom preacher is right about world events.  Times are bad—the Bible said they would be bad.  We have reason to believe that our money will be worthless and food could be in short supply.  Then their logic breaks down: Do you want to be that house on the block that has all the food during a famine?   What about sharing with others?

We are a supernatural family.   Are we supposed to be holed-up in a cabin during America’s darkest hour?   Should we be gearing up for survival or revival?

Some prosperity preachers do the exact same thing—they just use different words.  They want you to hide in possessions and a giddy life that is built on sand.  They think that is “being negative” to take a stand against abortion, Obama and the moral landslide of America.

add one copy

Here is an example of how they get people to live below their potential.  A famous prosperity teacher used this verse for his sermon: “Jesus went about doing good healing all who were oppressed of the devil for God was with him”-Acts 10:38.  Then with a wistful smile he says, that what I want…a congregation that goes about doing good.  Let’s be busy bringing pies to the shut in.  Let’s help the elderly by mowing their lawns, let’s help a blind person cross the street.

Who can find fault with doing those things?   But that’s just it…Jesus went about healing the sick and casting out devils.  Of course we need to do good deeds but Acts 10:38 speaks of much higher deeds—it speaks of supernatural power—something our nation is desperate to see.

In this case the hyper-prosperity message is in fact gloom and doom because it sets a limit on the impact a child of God can have on evil.   That is why I say that both of these preachers are getting the army of God to hide when we need to stand….when we need to embrace our weapons and authority against evil.  Victory—true victory is our only option.

-We can’t hide even if we want to.  Jesus said a city set on a hill cannot be hidden.  –Matthew 5:14.

We must work because the night is coming.  Jesus said, “We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work.” -John 9: 4

Many preachers are in a stupor and need electrode paddles to wake them up.  This is not a time for fear or frivolity.  It is the time to become armed and dangerous in the power of the Holy Spirit to tear down demonic strongholds over America.

add 2

It is time for the church to shake off self-pity, fear and denial.    America is being destroyed and the army of God is barricaded in the barracks.  Wake up!  God wants to attack the fear, evil and tyranny that controls America.

I reject any teaching that puts the church on the defensive at the very moment she should be most visible and engaged in a great Gospel offensive.

It is time to seek a life that blasts through limits—a  life that does exactly what everybody says can’t be done.

The Bible teems with examples of lives that made a difference when all seemed hopeless.

-When the last spark of hope died for the slaves in Egypt–Moses saw the burning bush.

-When the world was strangling in global famine–Joseph had already stored up mountains of grain.

-When love and morality were at their lowest ebb–we find the love story of Ruth and Boaz.

-At the moment of total despair–Esther brought deliverance.

-When the Church in Acts was being destroyed–a laser knocks Saul of Tarsus down on the road to Damascus.

Start your rebellion against gloom and doom by taking these steps:

Here is how you start their brand of an amazing life

1. Make God your dwelling place.Psalm 91: 1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” 3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence.  7 A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. 9 Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, 10 No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;11 For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.”

The most powerful phrase is “because you made God…your dwelling place.”  The unbreakable bond created by the decision to dwell in God reduces stress, neutralizes terrifying images and sets you free to do impossible things.

add 3

Enter the strong tower—you will get big plans!  Proverbs 18:10, “The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” This place of supernatural sense of safety is where great plans are created.  From the repose of this stronghold you plan without panic, you move forward without distraction, and you know you will finish strong.

2. Discern the life you are to live: Satan has practiced telling lies for thousands of years.  We know from scripture that in the last days Satan will sense his doom and break out in a frenzy of deception.

Everywhere you look you see believers who have been fooled into limited destiny—who have been distracted and who have fallen into traps.  False prophets are everywhere.  Paralyzing images from fear mongers have taken many believers out of commission.

Jesus solemnly warned his followers saying: “take heed that no one deceives you.”  You can be fooled off the front line.  You can be fooled out of your destiny.

Isaiah 8:12 “Do not say, ‘A conspiracy,’ concerning all that this people call a conspiracy, Nor be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled. 13 The Lord of hosts, Him you shall hallow; Let Him be your fear, and let Him be your dread. 14 He will be as a sanctuary.”  You will not chase a rumor.  You will see through tricks and traps.  You will not stop vital activities.  You will keep moving forward.

3. See that your real reason for being here is to destroy the works of the Devil. This final point is so urgent that I want to take extra care to make my point.  Everything about the Christian Faith is rooted in unselfish service.  When that focus is lost, the church is overrun by deception, division, and weakness.

The greatest need in the American church is a military grade mindset.  You are a soldier bent on victory. You are not a patient bent on recovery.  The soldier is not seeking comfort and ease.  They relish combat and triumph on the battlefield.

The sooner you realize that you are here to liberate others, the sooner you will stop being afraid and confused.  You will stop seeking to hide—you will embrace the excitement, and yes, the danger of a supernatural life.   Declare war on the gloom and doom.

How, despite everything, you can carve out an amazing life now

How

How, despite everything, you can carve out an amazing life now

By Mario Murillo

Almost everything today screams fear.  Our minds are battlefields…modern life keeps lobbing grenades of panic and dread.  The overwhelming message of today is: true happiness and fulfillment are no longer possible…don’t try to thrive, just survive.

It’s time to make a defiant declaration: Despite everything, you can carve out an amazing life.  What, in this mess?  Yes…in this very mess.

My title says DESPITE EVERYTHING.  That is the central promise of this message. Something amazing can bulldoze the walls of despair and clear a path to an amazing life…even now.

(This message is inspired by a sermon that I preached on Thursday August 27th in the Branson Outbreak.  The visitation of God in Branson continues to boggle our minds.  In fact, it is, itself, proof of what I am trying to tell you about life today.  The Branson Outbreak is defying every law except the law of gravity…and it would not surprise me if people started floating in the air.)

There are many opinions about how much life a Christian can actually have today.  The opinions run the gamut.   One extreme is the teaching that we are in the great tribulation and we must buy food and equipment and hide ourselves.  I disagree with this teaching …(although; it might be wise to have some extra provisions on hand because markets will get hit.)  This puts the church on the defensive at the very moment she should be most visible and engaged in a great Gospel offensive.

The other extreme is denial.  In this teaching, everything is a preachy, protestant-panacea. With all due respect, I disagree with Joel Osteen.  You cannot have your best life now—unless, as John MacArthur observed—you are going to hell.

Heaven is where you have your best life—earth is where you have an amazing life.

There is a galactic difference between seeking an amazing life and a “best’ life.  If your idea of an amazing life is to live without cares or challenges then let’s stop wasting each other’s time—you will get nothing out of this article.

Amazing means: causing great surprise or wonder.  That’s it!  It is a life that blasts through limits.  It is a life that does exactly what everybody said could not be done.

The Bible teems with examples of amazing lives:

-When the last spark of hope died for the slaves in Egypt–Moses saw the burning bush.

-When the world was strangling in global famine–Joseph had already stored up mountains of grain.

-When love and morality were at their lowest ebb–we find the love story of Ruth and Boaz.

-At the moment of total despair–Esther brought deliverance.

-When the Church in Acts was being destroyed–a laser knocks Saul of Tarsus down on the road to Damascus.

They all lived opposite the limits of their era.  They brought surprise and wonder.

Here is how you start their brand of an amazing life

1. Dwell: Your amazing life begins by making God your dwelling place. Psalm 91: 1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” 3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence.  7 A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. 9 Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, 10 No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;11 For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.”

The most powerful phrase is “because you made God…your dwelling place.”  The unbreakable bond created by the decision to dwell in God reduces stress, neutralizes terrifying images and sets you free to do impossible things.

Isaiah 26: 20 Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, until the indignation is past.  21 For behold, the LORD comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; the earth will also disclose her blood, and will no more cover her slain.”

Again, you see a clear call to enter, shut the door and hide in God during times of distress.

Proverbs 18:10 “The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.”

Enter the strong tower!  There awaits you a supernatural sense of safety where great plans are created.  From the repose of this stronghold you plan without panic, you move forward without distraction, and you know you will finish strong.

2 Discern: Satan has practiced telling lies for thousands of years.  We know from scripture that in the last days Satan will sense his doom and break out in a frenzy of deception.

Everywhere you look you see believers who have been fooled, who have been distracted and who have fallen into traps.  False prophets are everywhere.  Paralyzing images from fear mongers have taken many believers out of commission.

Jesus solemnly warned his followers saying: “take heed that no one deceives you.”  You can be fooled off the front line.  You can be fooled out of your destiny.

Isaiah 8:12 “Do not say, ‘A conspiracy,’ Concerning all that this people call a conspiracy, Nor be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled. 13 The Lord of hosts, Him you shall hallow; Let Him be your fear, And let Him be your dread. 14 He will be as a sanctuary,

From your dwelling place in God you see (discern) lies.  You will not chase a rumor.  You see through the tricks and traps.  You will not stop vital activities.  You will keep moving forward.

 3Deliver: You see that your real reason for being here is to destroy the works of the Devil. This final point is so urgent that I want to take extra care to make my point.  Everything about the Christian Faith is rooted in unselfish service.  When that focus is lost, the church is overrun by deception, division, and weakness.   You would be unstoppable if you left all of your sense of reward to your future in heaven, and only saw yourself here and now as a deliverer.

Ministers fall into two categories: enablers or equippers.

-Enablers lull believers into emotional dependency and selfishness.  If a pastor gets you to continually look inward it can be disaster.

-Equippers love people into strength, power and action.  Under their influence, you will soon be out ministering.  You will activate your gifts.

The greatest need in the American church is a military grade mindset.  You are a soldier bent on victory. You are not a patient bent on recovery.  The soldier is not seeking comfort and ease.  They relish combat and triumph on the battlefield.

The sooner you realize that you are here to liberate others, the sooner you will stop being afraid and confused.  You will stop seeking the false comfort of a “best” life, and you will embrace the excitement, and yes, the danger of an amazing life.  God is hiring–there is no shortage of wages for the soldiers who renounce all to destroy the works of the devil.

Power to Save a Nation Fell On Reno Nevada

by Mario Murillo

She had been bedridden most of the last 8 years.   Her body was attacking itself.  She takes the extraordinary step of faith to come to the Convention last night.   The Holy Spirit reveals in detail what is happening in her body and then this happened:   Power, raw power, living power coursed through her body and made her well, completely well.  She gleefully demonstrated the full and free use of her arms and legs.  She could not remember the last time that she felt no pain, no weakness and no despair.

Blog shot 1

A young generation of believers had never seen a miracle.  The impact was stunning and the effect will be lasting.

Lasting results are the hallmark of this first Living Proof World Convention. From the jump there was no doubt about the hunger of the people.  Hunger does not begin to describe it!  The unexpected crowd of spiritual warriors that came to Reno made it plain that they want America to be saved.

Worship led by Jason Michael, the worship team from Day3 Church in Los Banos California, and Alyssa Friend was powerful and irresistible.  The blend of voices and instruments did not just hit you. It went through you!

Dan Wilhelm of the NRA, Jim Carpenter of the Bridge of Yuba City, Sonny Lara Apostle of Star of David Ministries, , Pastor Stan Friend who leads C5 Church in Carson City NV, and Pastor Jim Willoughby of Echoes of Faith, Ontario CA all took a turn at igniting revival in the hearts of the people.

God spoke loud and clear.   The Holy Spirit emblazoned 3 messages in me. Each was a call.  The Power, The Work, The Stand.   Below is a summary of each message.

The Power: “I do not fear for Christianity, I fear for America.   Jesus said that the gates of hell would not prevail against the church.  Christianity will survive without America but America will not survive without Christianity.

I am also here to recruit you to be a part of our Living Proof Crusades.  These are citywide events that are ordained of God to introduce a new generation to Christ the miracle worker.

Let us begin by repenting of our greatest sin.   Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to run the Church, grow the Church.  He was sent to make us effective and relevant to the culture.

We are guilty of taking away His authority and running the church by our own wits.  We have failed miserably.  Sadly, even failure has not stopped men from controlling the things of God.

We must ask for power, we must wait for power.  We must seek utterly convinced that power is coming but at the same time brutally committed to wait as long as it takes.

It is all summed up in the words of Samuel to Saul: 1 Samuel 10:6 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.”

bLOG 2

The Work:  It is time to let God deliver you from feverish activity and show us the real way to live. Nothing ever said it better than these words from God Calling:  The world has always seen service for me to be activity.  Only those near to me have seen that a life apart, of prayer, may, and does so often, accomplish more that all of the service man can offer me. If man lived apart with Me and only went out to serve at My direct command My Spirit could operate more and accomplish truly mighty things. The world does not need supermen but supernatural men.  People who will persistently turn the self out of their lives and let Divine Power work through them.  Do not fear unemployment! God always has plenty of work to be done and always pays His workers well.”

We will be judged.  It will be clear what we did in our own power and what God did through us.  1 Corinthians 3: 12  13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. 14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward.

Billy Graham said this, “God’s idea of strength and man’s idea of strength are opposite one another.

The Lord told Paul, “My strength is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Cor. 12:9) having learned this lesson, Paul could then say, “when I am weak then I am strong (2 Cor. 12:10).  A paradox?  Not really. Only when Paul admitted to his own weakness and was willing to get out of the way could God take over and work.bLOG 5

If we tried to do God’s will in our own strength, then we can take the credit for whatever gets accomplished. But that is in God’s way!  When we left his strength work through us, then he alone will get the glory– and that is as it should be.”

It is a happy day when we fall before God and declare our utter powerlessness to do the work of God.  Because he is God, He is not fooled by the avalanche of evil. He is not surprised by the sudden changes that have made life so difficult for us.

From the moment that hell belched out its latest threat against the church, the Holy Spirit began to unfold a strategy. We have nothing more to do than two fold ourselves into that strategy and live by the clear and loving commands that emerge from prayer and obedience.

  1. M. Bounds said, “What the Church needs today is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use — men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men — men of prayer.”

The Stand:  You have to stand for something.  We have all seen ministers on the Larry King Show or with Oprah completely cave in on their convictions when they were asked straight questions.   The Bible says:

Proverbs 25: 26 A righteous man who falters before the wicked Is like a murky spring and a polluted well.

In order to stand you must follow clear instructions.  “Put on the whole armor of God”, means exactly that: All!  It is tragic that many put on a part of the armor but feel entitled to all of the protection.

Ephesians 6: 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 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. Blog 7

13 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.14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

Acts 5: 17 Then the high priest rose up, and all those who were with him (which is the sect of the Sadducees), and they were filled with indignation, 18 and laid their hands on the apostles and put them in the common prison. 19 But at night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said, 20 “Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life.”

God provoked the Sadducees to arrest all of the apostles.  The angel refreshed their focus.  Stand together, in the heart of the city, and tell all of the words of this life.

When we take a stand against our flesh, and then take a stand against the evil one, we are able to take a stand in a culture that hates our message.”

The end result of the convention was faith in the power of God to rescue America, a fresh endowment of power, and a rock solid conviction never to back down, slow down or back away from our preordained victory.

bLOG 8

It is only after the convention ended and I had my first full night of sleep in a blue moon does it really dawn on me what God has done.  Living Proof is now fully operational.  A family has formed that has a heart for the lost and America.  We all left the mediocre and the mundane behind forever.  We have seen the glory and received the power.  Amen!

THE BEST DAYS OF YOUR LIFE

final best days

Millions have left the church.  This is the reality that Christian leaders do not want to talk about.  However, facts do not go away.  The facts are these: an entire generation has virtually discarded the faith of their parents.

Not only this, but many who were on fire for God and even effective vessels have fallen and have abandoned their faith in Jesus.  A famous Christian singer announces that he is now an atheist.  Is that shocking? The real shock is that the church is not shocked because this kind of recanting of faith is now common.

Maybe you were wounded on the battlefield and did not get up again.  The reasons are as varied as the people themselves are.  It may have been an abusive church.  It may have been an old habit that raged its way back in control.  It may have been a divorce, a false teaching that weakened you, or the gravitational force of unbelief and skepticism of this age.

The most common cause is sudden tragedy.  Something horrendous happened that ran off of your theological map.  You felt that you had no choice but to abandon your faith.  You may be angry with God.  You are not alone.  There are millions in this condition.iStock_000003894799Medium[1]

The Holy Spirit has burned a message into my soul that I cannot contain. I want this message to get into the hands of as many people as possible.  I have never felt as great an urgency to open my heart to you.  Millions have left the church.

Let me be frank, I believe that God is turning your heart back to Him.  He is doing this on a massive scale.

He has done this before.  Right before the fire fell on Mount Carmel, Elijah prayed these words, “Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that You are the Lord God, and that You have turned their hearts back to You again (1 Kings 18:37).”

He is doing this not just because He loves you but because He is trying to spare America: “and he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse (Malachi 4:6).”

You are most likely a casualty of the lukewarm American church.  Widespread compromise left her unprotected.  The active ingredient was left out of preaching; that ingredient is surrender.  The power of God to stand against tragedy and evil never kicked in for this very reason.

The Holy Spirit is intensifying His voice to the fallen, the wounded and the forgotten.  While His wooing is loving and hopeful, it does not mask the truth.

In America entire churches are backslidden!  And it is not unprecedented.  Look at these verses: “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me (Revelations 3:15).”

Best days insert

Okay, you may have been caught in the cultural crossfire of the compromised church, the toxic church and even the false church, but why lose your soul to get back at false ministers and sick churches?

This is about you and Jesus.  This is about a destiny that God still keeps for you.  There is one thing that Satan does not want you to remember.  It is the one thing that can break the chains of lies and heartbreak.

What Satan does not want you to think about is this: if you brush away the cobwebs of church politics, hypocrites, and unexpected tragedy you will admit that the best days of your life were when you walked with God in fervent commitment.  Those were the days of peace and joy. 

The best days were the days before anybody and anything came between you and Jesus.  You prayed and sensed that no matter what everything would come out alright.  Even your questions were harnessed by a total trust in the character of God!

You have never felt anything like His presence.  Those were the best days.  Those days can come again.  Jesus is knocking and wants to have dinner with you alone.  “I will sup with him” Jesus promised.

I will admit that I am speaking a divine desperation to come over you.  I want you to break, I want you to yearn to come home to your best life, your only life.  There is an army rising up, made of people that Satan thought he had but is about to lose on a grand scale.  Welcome back to the war!

How a convention will become a nationwide movement

HOW A CONVENTION WILL BECOME A NATIONWIDE MOVEMENT

By Mario Murillo

The worship alone will be historic but there is so much more that is going to happen.   Come and hear messages that will defuse fear and neutralize the lies that are holding back the American Church.  Gain a plan to revolutionize your ministry and community.   Be filled with Fresh Fire. The pre-convention  excitement level tells us that we will not be able to contain the results and that this will rise to become a nationwide movement.

We have learned that the vast majority of those who read this blog regularly are concerned about three things: America, your loved ones and your walk with God.  We also know that you are not afraid to speak out against the tyranny of our government.

All of that tells us something else: You are seeking more of God.   Because of this, you are likely to attend a conference, seminar, convention, or retreat this year. 

Let me suggest that you pray seriously about the Living Proof World Convention.   I could promise you a no frills truth centered event that will confront all of the matters that I mentioned but the big reason you should come is something different: An outpouring of the power of God that will root out the things that are holding us back and will imbue us transforming power and fire.

You will meet the growing number of believers who are finished with dead religion and compromise.  Join hearts with those who love America and believe that there is a supernatural solution.  If you are facing the battle of your life maybe this convention is the answer from the Lord that you have prayed for.

Our conviction: The American Church will not be turned around by supermen but by supernatural men. We do not need better equipment, new organizations, novel methods, but vessels that the Holy Ghost can use—vessels who pray with prevailing might.  God does not flow through religious machinery but through human beings, he does not anoint plans, but people—people of prayer.

Do not sit back and watch dark clouds gather.  Sweep away the cobwebs, underbrush and weeds of despair and take action!  It is high time for you to put on the full armor of God’s power.

This prayer of Peter embodies this convention:  Acts 4: 29  Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” 31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.

Here are some urgent final statements.  Pray and ask God if you are to be a part of this groundbreaking event.  Act boldly and do not let fear stop you from coming.   God will make a way if you are truly serious about having power in these end times.  Join Mechelle and me for the renovation of your life and ministry.   The Living Proof World Convention has one simple goal:  To restore the roar of the American Church.
