ALL THAT CAN BE SHAKEN

I am walking the Streets of San Francisco.   I snap this picture and something blasted in my spirit: “all that can be shaken.” God has made His choice.  God has chosen His targets.  God will strike suddenly.

2018: the year that everything that can be shaken will be shaken.

-You companies who have used your wealth and power to persecute the righteous will now be shaken.

-You politicians—who have ruined America for decades will suddenly disappear.

-You preachers who have handled the Word of God deceitfully and cheapened Grace to finance your private life of drunkenness, whoredom, and materialism will have your gift removed in public humiliation.

God shook Himself.  He waited.  He was patient.  He gave you time to play church.  He let you have your blessing toys.  He looked away in hopes we would come to ourselves.  His blessing and his goodness did not bring you to repentance.  No, it became a license to go deeper into counterfeit Christianity.

The America church is guilty of great crimes against the Holy Spirit.  We told Him to leave and lets us grow Christianity incorporated—the worst thing we could have done.

It was a mistake—a terrible, incalculable, ongoing mistake—derailing more truth in less time than any moral plague in history.

It’s why we couldn’t stop Barack Obama—why we made no cogent case to save marriage, the unborn, or free speech—why we stood by and watched America change overnight—why we were helpless to intervene when our nation began hating everything that made her great.

Trump was only the beginning of this shaking.  He is rude, he is offensive—by design.  His words uproot and tear down.  He is a wrecking ball to international corruption.  His crudeness is a tool of a God with a plan.  He makes you queasy?  He scares you?  That’s nothing…

Just wait till they try to get him out of power.  Oh how his enemies rejoice thinking they have nailed him as a racist.  They will fail for 2 simple reasons:  He is not a racist and he is in power for a divine reason.

Watch the most powerful people attack and crumble.  Watch liberal heads explode as Trump remains—not because he is holy or even a good leader—but because he is chosen to wreak havoc on the world system.

Why now you ask?  Why has God rolled up His sleeve to root up false ministries?  Why is He accelerating His earthquakes?  I wondered.  I asked.  The answer was stunning but not surprising.  Here are the reasons:

-We are at the moment when Google, Facebook, Apple, Twitter along with leftist leaders will unfurl a cyber-iron curtain.  Christians will be marginalized.  Values that violate our Constitution and freedom of religion will be enforced.  Bible preaching will be a hate crime.  (How sickening!  Carnal ministers were toadies in this plan to drive the church underground and terrorize Israel.)

-God sees the coming mid-term elections.  Without a miracle by November, Nancy Pelosi will again be the Speaker of the House. What a plague. We are only months away from a leftist backlash that will transcend anything in our history.

God came to the inescapable decision that revival must come now or the nation is lost.  He will pour out wrath…but He will also pour out His Spirit.  Hallelujah!

Look for despised little churches—faithfully preaching the Word of God—to become centers of Glory, miracles and mass conversions.

Look for nobodies to come on the scene like a righteous tornado and roar repentance with such power that their voice will echo in the penthouses of power.

Look for campus ministries to rise because millennials will see the blatant persecution and turn Christianity into a celebrated cause.

Look for preaching to be matched with miracles—confirmation of the WORD by medically inexplicable healings.

Look for God to pull out all the stops to save America.  Look for every ministry fueled by man to fall by the wayside to make room for the voices that cannot be shaken.

Writing this blog brought me great turmoil until something happened that removed all doubt.  I walked the streets of San Francisco fighting an inner war.  Suddenly my cell phone rang.  It was my good Friend Ron McIntosh—president of Victory Bible College in Tulsa.

He asked me, “what is God telling you about 2018?”  Before I could answer him, he said, “God showed me it will be a year where everything that can be shaken, will be shaken.”

 

JAW BREAKING NEWS ABOUT 2018

A trembling kid kneels by his bed in Santa Barbara and prays.  A pile of papers is on the floor beside him. They are why he prays so fervently.   This teenager will attempt to do what only attorneys should do.

He is filling out forms to become a ministry incorporated in California, and legally recognized by the IRS.  He is asking the Holy Spirit to direct each answer he places on those daunting legal forms.  Finally, he mails them.  And yeah, that was me.

It feels like a moment ago when I—still shaking with insecurity—dropped those forms into the mail box.  I remember choking back fear.  Had I just done something terribly wrong?  Had I opened myself up to federal prosecution?

Months passed.  Then there was a letter from the IRS. Have you ever gotten a letter that you were dying to open and yet terrified to open?  I stared at that envelope a long time.  It felt like a Christmas present from your worst enemy.

I took it somewhere private and slowly opened it.  I risked one eye.  I read it out loud.  We were approved by California and the Federal Government. Wow!  That was 50 years ago!

Thus began an astounding journey that can rival anything in the Book of Acts.  It began with my work with Mike and Pat Reed who led the University Christian Center at UCSB.  The walk of faith took me to the heights of glory and depths of sorrow.  I would rejoice in towering miracles of salvation and healing.  I would endure many a personal Gethsemane.  There would be times, I would soar with joy, and times of despair where I couldn’t find my next breath.  Nevertheless, through glory and rejection we stand today as a growing force for God in America.

Now comes the big part: That was 50 years ago.  My breaking news for you is quite simple:
IT’S OUR 50TH ANNIVERSARY!  2018 IS OUR YEAR OF GOLDEN JUBILEE.  WE ARE GOING TO CELEBRATE ALL YEAR LONG!

Our first celebration is a city-wide miracle crusade in Toledo Ohio January 27,28th.  We have huge history in Toledo.  In 1994, I was preaching in a tent in LA. Sunlight and so many warm bodies made the tent a hot house.  Then the evening breeze would drop the temperature dramatically.  I would sweat while preaching and then start shivering when I was done.  This gave me severe bronchitis.

Now, I was scheduled to go to Toledo where there was early snow and freezing temperatures seemed insane.  I called Pastor Tony Scott that Thursday and asked to be excused.  He graciously agreed.   Then he had the audacity to call back and tell me God wanted me to come anyway.  Tony Scott is bodacious.  One reason we are lifelong friends is that he prays, hears from God, and obeys—no matter what.

I was flabbergasted.  No way could I go to Toledo. But I couldn’t shake Tony’s words.  Soon I was on a jet, breaking every personal rule of travel, choking back coughs for hours.

The same God that moved Tony, spoke to me, “I will heal you before you preach in Toledo.”  That miracle came Sunday morning.

What happened next is engraved in the history of Toledo, Ohio.  What never should have happened became a city-wide miracle.  It impacted tens of thousands of people for the next 18 months. The revival—dubbed Holy Toledo—drew crowds of 4,500 people.  But now comes our greatest outreach ever in Toledo.

Join us January 27th, and 28th for our Golden Jubilee Miracle Crusade in Toledo At the Church on Strayer.    

Next comes our World Convention in Ontario California March 8,9,10, 11th.   At Faith Life Center 3778 Milliken/ Hamner Ave Eastvale, CA 91752
This will be our greatest convention ever.  It features young vessels of God who are rising in our nation in this critical hour.  No one who attends this outpouring of fire will ever be the same.  See the video and click here on to register right away!

Las Vegas Nevada!  March 25-30 our tent will be up in Las Vegas.  This is the first Living Proof Tent Crusade of 2018 with other explosive outreaches to be announced. 
Please contact us in you want to be involved with Las Vegas.  Call us at 775 238 3473 or email us at info@mariomurillo.org      We are calling on the army of God to pray and work with us to  win the lost and heal the sick in Las Vegas.

A GIANT P.S.  FROM MMM

As Mario has told you we will celebrate our Golden Jubilee all year.  Here is even more breaking news for 2018

We are excited about the different branches of ministry that we developing this year.
We are partnering with Inner City Action to bring Living Proof Tent Revivals to hurting cities all over the US
We are launching IGNITE which is an outreach training and activation ministry that will be led by Joshua Olmos.
We have a new book coming this year
We have a discipleship ministry launching this year led by Dan Brannum
We have a training course taught by Mario Murillo coming this year and many more exciting announcements to come.
This is a new year with new vision and new breakthrough.

Yes, you’re right. Revival is now impossible

 

Yes, revival is now impossible.  Everything thing the pessimistic Christians say is true. They are right about our national morals, division and the deadness of the church  but they are forgetting one thing about revival…

Revival struck London through John Wesley when it was impossible.   One out every seven houses in London was a house of prostitution.  More people were attending seances than church.  Nearly 100,000 children lived like animals.  The London times had not mentioned Christmas for decades…not even once.

The Methodist revival under Wesley turned England into the world’s missionary leader.

Revival struck Kentucky when it was unthinkable.  This was the most lawless state in the union.  There was no police.  Every criminal on the run headed for Kentucky.  Murder, rape, and alcoholism were pandemic.  Revival flipped Kentucky so violently that it became the most zealously Christian state in America.

The early twentieth century was a far more skeptical era than today.  The blush of Darwinism and Marxism was so feverish that it was a foregone conclusion that Christianity would go away altogether. Scientists declared the age of reason and solemnly assured us that religion would be gone by the 1920s.

raw bravery

Imagine in that atmosphere, if you were to have said in 1906, “a one eyed black man is going to rent a dingy horse livery on Azusa Street in downtown Los Angeles and start a movement that will engulf nearly 600 million people worldwide.”  

The point is that revivals are impossible…and when it looks totally impossible they happen.

You should also know what the church was preaching in those darkest moments before awakenings began.  Pulpits were filled with pessimists who instead of rebuking the despair joined in the chorus.  They declared the day of revival to be over!  Even that did not stop God.

How is it that revival can strike without warning in the most unpromising times and grow in the hardest soil?  The answer is that when darkness is intense we tend look at the wrong indicators.  It’s not that there are no warnings of revival it is simply that we do not know them when we see them because fear is so loud.

Look at today.  Do you see any signs of revival?  Most would say absolutely not.  They would say all of the same things that people have said before every outpouring of God.   The times are too evil.

That is the argument today.  We legalized gay marriage, drugs and we toy with Islam.  Our leaders are loons that are finding the best ways to drive us into extinction.  Churches are closing and 1,000 ministers are leaving the ministry every month.  You know the rest because you have heard a hundred times.

Atheists are boasting that the whole world in general is becoming secular and anti-supernatural.  The facts are just the opposite.  It is a very religious world, far more religious than it was 50 years ago.

Consider these statistics from sociologist Rodney Stark:

— 81 percent claim to belong to an organized religious faith, and most of the rest report engaging in religious activities such as prayer or making offerings to the gods in various “folk religion” temples.

— 74 percent say religion is an important part of their daily lives.

— 50 percent report they have attended a place of worship or religious service in the past seven days.

-In very few nations do as many as five percent claim to be atheists, and only in China, Vietnam, and South Korea do they exceed 20 percent.

-Furthermore, in every nook and cranny left by organized faiths, all manner of unconventional spiritual and mystical practices are booming. There are more occult healers than medical doctors in Russia, 38 percent of the French believe in astrology, 35 percent of the Swiss agree that “some fortune tellers really can foresee the future,” and nearly everyone in Japan is careful to have their new car blessed by a Shinto priest.

To be sure, little of this is Christian but it is undeniable that the waters of supernatural hunger are being stirred worldwide.

Another sign is the evil of people itself.   For example, Saul of Tarsus was at the peak of his terrorism when he was violently converted. What no one but God knew was the growing desperation inside of this soon to be Paul the Apostle.   Societies are often at their worst right before revival.

What we do not want to do is miss revival when it hits!

Dark times can absorb our faith in the power of God.  Many believers find themselves in a condition that is truly worse than they ever imagined.  Pangs of fear grip men of God who were once lions in the pulpit.  We invent doctrines that fit our disappointment.  We build ministries based on our lowered expectations.

You need a healthy respect for the power of dark times to rob us of faith.  It has happened to the best of us.

500 people saw Jesus Christ ascend into the clouds.  Think about that.  In the face of such absolute proof that Jesus was the Son of God, how could they ever doubt?

As He ascended he told them to wait in Jerusalem for the promise of the Holy Spirit.  Surely they would wait…right?  Astonishingly, only 120 were still waiting in the upper room on the Day of Pentecost.  How is it possible in the face of so great an assurance that they would falter and abandon their posts?

Their world was filled with sudden terror from a wicked king, oppression from religious leaders, and tyranny from the Roman occupiers.  Their daily grind absorbed their zeal for the promises of God.

Do not be like the 380 people who missed one of the greatest moments in history.  Here are two things that you need to confess and say to your spirit so that you will not leave the upper room.

  1. Either it was always true or it was never true. Times do not alter truth. A lack of money does not change God’s word about prosperity.  Sickness does not nullify the fact of God’s healing power.  The evil of men does not overrule the supremacy of Christ.   If God promised you something, these dark times cannot stop their fulfillment.
  2. This will be like one of them. 1 Samuel 17: 4 But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep his father’s sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock, 35 I went out after it and struck it, and delivered the lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it. 36 Your servant has killed both lion and bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God.”

youth revivalIt is easy to say that evil is more intense and sophisticated than ever before.  Neither Saul, nor Israel had ever faced anything like Goliath before.  David said that it did not matter; this new threat would have the same outcome as all of the old threats.

Jesus is telling us to wait for the power that is about to break out no matter what.   Does revival look totally impossible to you?  Don’t worry, they all look that way until they happen.

The Warrior’s Workshop with Mario Murillo

 

We are all training for something.  We are either training for greatness or we are training for defeat.  Right now, America is training for destruction.  She has lost the values and traditions that made her greatest nation on Earth.

Breaking News

 

 

By Mario Murillo

A big lie has stopped the church in America.  To say youth do not want Christ—won’t heed an unapologetic Gospel and will shun miracles is an epic lie.  The breaking news is that God has blown that lie to smithereens.

People of all ages and backgrounds packed out halls in—of all places—California! If you could talk with them, they would shout because sickness and addiction has left their bodies.  They will tell you they will never be the same.  

Our Living Proof tour hit Redding, San Jose, Manteca, Yuba City, Clearlake, Bakersfield and Turlock.  Sit with me now and read this historic report.

Sonny and Linda Lara of Star of David Ministries led our outreach to San Jose.  A Democratic State Senator came that night.  He wanted to witness firsthand what we had advertised about Jesus and divine healing.

1 San Jose

 

A woman stands to test her healing. She said, “the word of knowledge identified every place in my body where pain made my life a living hell…especially when I heard the part about my skin and how doctors cannot understand what is happening to me, it removed all doubt.  Now, I have no pain or weakness!”  I will never forget the humble look of wonder on the Senator’s face.

When I called the youth to Christ is was effortless.  Instantly, the front is filled with youth surrendering to Christ.

Manteca California: The building is full of youth.  We were excited to partner with Ben Lucero and Isaiah Saldivar who lead the 209 Awakening.

We would see many healings this night but here is the greatest: I am compelled by God to wade into the audience.  A young man sits in total despair.  Voices tell him over and over to quit trying and just take his own life.  I say, “Satan has told you to quit.  But God is giving you a new life!”   He hit the floor under the power. When he finally got back up he had a supernatural will to live.  Glory to God!

The Holy Spirit pulled many treasures out of darkness that night.

Manteca 10

 

Yuba City: Three nights that combined The Bridge of Yuba City led by Jim and Kristine Carpenter and The Church of Glad Tidings led by David and Cheryl Bryan.

We asked Grandmaster Bill Jones to testify.  He had come to Living Proof Concord California in the Crown Plaza convention center 3 years before.    He told a heart-stopping story.  He had won 57 world championships in martial arts until one day he began to shake.  Parkinson’s disease changed his world overnight.  He shook continually shake like a rattlesnake.  On top of this, they found 4 cancerous tumors in his body.   Now, it seemed, he might even lose his life.  Even if he lived he could never pay the $75,000 debts that piled up.

The remarkable thing is that when we laid hands on him there was no outward change.  But every day he got better until miraculously Parkinson’s and cancer were gone!  Then, out of the blue he receives a $77,000 settlement! Three years later he is still completely healed.  His testimony made faith erupt like a volcano!

I fully preached the Gospel. For 3 days a wave of miracle healing hit those who were sick, addicted or bound by demonic power.  Youth shouted for joy as they laid hands on the sick and they were healed.  Night after night, the front of the building was overwhelmed with hearts wanting Christ.

5

Clearlake: Teresa Stacy testified about her miracle in our meeting here 5 years ago.  She was only days away from death.  Her liver was 98% dead.  Her blood sugar was over 400.  Her heart was failing fast. She had reflex sympathetic dystrophy: severe burning pain all over her body.  Her husband Jim was not able to hug her for 14 years! She had severely injured her spine in a car accident.  The result: a telescoping spine that took away two inches of height.

The word came—she hit the floor and Jesus operated on her—and she was instantly healed.  She was even two inches taller immediately.  Every test proved she was totally healed.  Her doctor said you have a liver as pure as a child in the fetus.

Her story hit a mail man in the audience dying of pancreatic cancer.  He was not a believer.  Besides the cancer, chemotherapy tortured this man.  I picked him out of the audience. Jesus told me to say to him: “Jesus can do what chemotherapy cannot do!” He said that in that instant, the pain left and he knew he was healed by Christ.  His healing made others bold to reach out for a miracle and the Lord did not disappoint.

Once again, Living Proof broke the chains and young souls ran to Jesus.

6

Turlock: We are with Ron and Jen Eivaz at Harvest Christian Center.  We choose this venue because it’s one of the biggest auditoriums in town and because a healing revival is already happening.  When the mass prayer for healing came it seemed one third of the crowd claimed they had been healed.  Again, many turn to Christ.

Bakersfield was the greatest outpouring of the tour.  Manuel and Liz Carrizales who lead Stay Focused Ministries are on the front line of the killing fields of Bakersfield.  Drive by shootings, gang related assassinations have taken over Bakersfield.  Since December 1st, 2015 there has been a gun battle almost every day.

We met with pastors for lunch.  The 6 o’clock and 11 o’clock news carried the story that we were meeting with pastors to respond to the violence in the city.  It set the stage for that night.

By 7 PM the auditorium was packed.  This is what MMM is all about!  I preached with all my might under an intense anointing.  Some say that hundreds came forward.  Only God knows the real number.  Amazingly, we did not send the converts into a prayer room.  Instead, Jesus said, “I want to baptize them in the Holy Spirit now.”

2

The vast harvest raised holy hands and they began to speak in tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance!

I tested our friendship severely by asking you to give us the money to build a mobile, supernatural ministry that could just keep invading.  God did this through you our precious partners in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Judge Not: The one big lie that is destroying America

What is the most dangerous lie in America?  What is killing us?  The abuse of a simple phrase that Jesus used, “Judge not that you be not judged.”  In the last few days, our site has smeared with vile posts by people claiming to be open-minded and, amazingly claiming to be more intelligent.

Judge Not: The one big lie that is destroying America

By Mario Murillo

What is the most dangerous lie in America?  What is killing us?  The abuse of a simple phrase that Jesus used, “Judge not that you be not judged.”  In the last few days, our site has smeared with vile posts by people claiming to be open-minded and, amazingly claiming to be more intelligent.  What was even more tragic was the host of self-defined Christians who went along with them saying silly things, “we shouldn’t judge,” and my personal favorite, “you are making it harder for us to reach people.”

I am not making it harder for you to reach people, because I wonder if you are reaching anyone.  How can you witness?  At some  point in witnessing you have to make a moral judgment.

I live in Northern California, ground zero for liberalism.  They are constantly telling people not to judge.  Their hilarious hypocrisy is breathtaking.  Bay Area liberals are the most judgmental people on the planet.  I have lived under environmental, nutritional, gender sharia law most of my adult life.

Last December in Danville California I said, “Merry Christmas,” to my waiter.  He scowled at me and said, “I do not want to exclude anyone.”  Talk about a hair trigger!  Everything on earth is a cause for liberals.  How do they sleep at night with so much judging to do???  They judge, food, animal treatment, gardening, the car you drive, even your fireplace.  To them, it is a world is filled with “ists.”    Sexists, elitists, capitalists, fascists, racists, and now because of animal rights there are “Specists” (people who believe humans are a higher species than man.)

Christians we better wake up!  Don’t take Jesus out of context just so you can hide in a deeply immoral nation.   Now read the best article ever on the abuse of “Judge not.”  By By  BRANNON HOWSE

Tolerance mongers seem to have found the one absolute truth they are willing to live by. How many times have you heard someone say, “Judge not lest you be judged”? The statement has become the great American open-mindedness mantra when anyone has the courage to declare that someone else’s belief, actions or lifestyle is morally amiss.

Another form of the same non-judgmental judgment is “that may be true for you, but it’s not true for me.” The logic behind the statement goes something like this: “Your truth is your truth and my truth is my truth. We are both right, and I hold to my opinion of truth.” The last time I checked, it was impossible for two chairs to occupy the same space around my dining room table, but evidently such rules of time, space and logic don’t apply to tolerance philosophy.

Postmodernism’s live-and-let-live concept of truth argues that even two opposite and wholly contradictory claims can both be true. This is as stupid as saying that black and white are the same color. Yet, it clarifies the absurdity of the postmodernism we are all supposed to blithely accept as the fundamental principle by which we respond to each other’s ideas – the “please and thank-you” of philosophical respect.

So beware.  If you dare claim that another person’s truth is not, in fact, truth but is, in fact, wrong, you are not only being intolerant but you are also being – Mantra forbid! – Judgmental.

In his book “True for You, But Not for Me,” Paul Copan describes the fallacy in this all too common thinking:

It has been said that the most frequently quoted Bible verse is no longer John 3:16 but Matthew 7:1: “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.” We cannot glibly quote this, though, without understanding what Jesus meant. When Jesus condemned judging, he wasn’t at all implying we should never make judgments about anyone. After all, a few verses later, Jesus himself calls certain people “pigs” and “dogs” (Matt 7:6) and “wolves in sheep’s clothing” (7:15). … What Jesus condemns is a critical and judgmental spirit, an unholy sense of superiority. Jesus commanded us to examine ourselves first for the problems we so easily see in others. Only then can we help remove the speck in another’s eye – which, incidentally, assumes that a problem exists and must be confronted.

Those that tell you not to judge, quoting Matthew 7:1 grossly out of context, are often some of the most mean-spirited, judgmental souls you could ever meet. It’s not, of course, that they don’t want anyone to judge anything, because they want very much to judge and condemn your commitment to lovingly speak and practice your Christian worldview. You see how these tolerance rules work? We must tolerate them, but they don’t have to tolerate us. The logic is consistent, anyway.

Today’s postmodern culture of adults and students is so consumed by non-judgmentalism that there are some who say we should not even call wrong or evil the terrorists that attacked America on Sept. 11, 2001. In a Time magazine essay entitled “God Is Not on My Side. Or Yours,” Roger Rosenblatt offers the philosophical underpinnings of the live-and-let-live rule for global terrorism:

“One would like to think that God is on our side against the terrorists, because the terrorists are wrong and we are in the right, and any deity worth his salt would be able to discern that objective truth. But this is simply good-hearted arrogance cloaked in morality – the same kind of thinking that makes people decide that God created humans in his own image. The God worth worshiping is the one who pays us the compliment of self-regulation, and we might return it by minding our own business.”

ht and wrong is “good-hearted,” even if the reactions to it aren’t. Alison Hornstein, for instance, is a student at Yale University who observed the disconnect between tolerance and reality. Writing on “The Question That We Should Be Asking – Is Terrorism Wrong?” in the Dec. 17, 2001, issue of Newsweek, Alison noted, “My generation may be culturally sensitive, but we hesitate to make moral judgments.” While that might be putting it mildly, she goes on to say:

Student reactions expressed in the daily newspaper and in class pointed to the differences between our life circumstances and those of the [9-11] perpetrators, suggesting that these differences had caused the previous day’s events. Noticeably absent was a general outcry of indignation at what had been the most successful terrorist attack of our lifetime. These reactions and similar ones on other campuses have made it apparent that my generation is uncomfortable assessing, or even asking whether a moral wrong has taken place.”

Hornstein further describes how on Sept. 12th – one day after Islamic extremists murdered more than 3,000 people on American soil – one of her professors “did not see much difference between Hamas suicide bombers and American soldiers who died fighting in World War II. When I saw one or two students nodding in agreement, I raised my hand. …. American soldiers, in uniform, did not have a policy of specifically targeting civilians; suicide bombers, who wear plainclothes, do. The professor didn’t call on me. The people who did get a chance to speak cited various provocations for terrorism; not one of them questioned its morality.”

If Americans don’t start to judge and punish evil instead of accepting all ideas and beliefs as equal, we will become a nation that welcomes same-sex marriage, polygamy, pedophilia, incest, euthanasia and likely a host of moral aberrations so bizarre they’re still hidden in the darkest reaches of the Internet.

I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say, “you know we are not to judge people; even the Bible says ‘judge not lest you be judged.’” Americans had better start getting comfortable with politically incorrect, non-humanistic forms of making intelligent judgments on moral issues because even if we don’t make them, I’m concerned there is Someone very willing to hold our nation accountable for what we allow. And He doesn’t respond well to intimidation, name-calling, flawed logic or being quoted out of context.

GIVING THE ENEMY THE FIGHT OF HIS LIFE

GIVING THE ENEMY THE FIGHT OF HIS LIFE

By Mario Murillo

Her teenage son is an atheist.   He agrees to go to a Living Proof Crusade.   For mom, this means sitting in agony for the whole night because of her crippled leg and degenerating spine.  But this is for her son.

If only you, my precious partner in the Gospel, could have been there to see what happened next.  The Holy Spirit pulled me to the back of the packed auditorium.   With grace and wisdom from beyond this world, her entire condition is revealed.   She starts walking without pain or weakness.

Her son is the first to charge to the front and surrender himself to Christ.  Double sorrow becomes double joy!

My joy is that our dream has come true.   I told you that we would stop having regular meetings in church buildings.   I told you we would prove Jesus to lost American youth.   Here is the proof in pictures.   Here is the fulfillment of our deepest prayers.

Not only did we pray for miracles, we prayed that these miracles would convince lost youth.   Jesus is alive!  He heals!   He delivers!   God has done it!   This is the message that they are getting.  The next phase is to turn this stream into a raging river.Manteca 2

This next phase will actually throw a weapon of Satan back in his face.    That weapon is social media.  Youth are connected by social media outlets such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest and Instagram.   These outlets have done untold damage, and yet God is showing us how to inject the Word of God into all of them.   Think of this: more youth have discovered us through social media than they did through our television ministry on TBN.

They are not just better than television, they can do something even more important; they can start a movement.   Television is a spectator media but youth interact with these networks.  In the old days, a ministry had to touch many cities before creating momentum.  Now an outbreak of the Holy Spirit in one city can cause a chain reaction in many cities.

The city most likely to cause that chain reaction is Yuba City.   By the time you read this, it may have already started.   Living Proof Yuba City begins on June 10th at the Yuba/Sutter Fairgrounds. We have never seen an outreach begin so supernaturally.

How supernatural?  Listen to this:  My good friend Jim Carpenter is pastor of the Bridge of Yuba City.  I was talking to him one Saturday night and suddenly blurted this out, “The mayor is going to be at your church in the morning and God is going to rock his world.”   I grew faint when I realized what I had just said.   He politely accepted what I had just said.  But I was worried.  He had to think I was crazy.Manteca 3

Sure enough, the mayor showed up.   The fire of God hits him; he hits the floor and stays there for an hour.   He joins the church and begins to use his influence to bless the city.   Soon an unprecedented unity comes to the churches.  Willing workers flood the city with literature for Living Proof.  The social media starts buzzing with news about coming outreach.

That buzz is not limited to Yuba City.  Pastors, leaders, and even politicians are finally starting to understand what we are trying to do.   The blend of signs and wonders with unapologetic preaching has captured the hearts of God’s people.

I believe I know what is on your heart.  I believe it is the same passion that burns in my soul.   The people who hate God have devastated America.   It sickens us to see everything that made our nation great being cursed and rejected.   We are watching a masterstroke of government tyranny and moral depravity.  That activity has utterly disfigured the face of our great nation and put Americans at each other’s throats.   Satan has performed an amazing feat of evil in America.

We must fully absorb the horror of what has happened to America.  Otherwise, we will not muster the necessary outrage and boldness to be God’s cure for the nation.   Only then can we truly see we have no reason to apologize or remain silent.

Peter was ordered to remain silent.  The miracle of the man at the gate, Beautiful, was a great threat to the leaders of Jerusalem.  Be that as it may, this miracle forever confirmed the right, yea the duty of the church to release miracles in the face of tyranny.   He said, “If we should obey man rather than God, you decide.  But we cannot help but speak of the things which we have both seen and heard.”   His words resound to our situation.  It reminds us of what matters, it inspires us to action.  Living Proof is our action.

Let me speak plainly about action.   We dare not preach to tickle ears.  We must become America’s loving opposition to the destruction of marriage and the unborn.  We must oppose the poisoning of our children’s minds by Marxist and Islamic radicals.   

The ministry to our children must be continually sharper and the power of God must be continually stronger.   We must keep up the attack no matter what Government says.  When they told Peter to shut up, he prayed for greater boldness to preach.   When they ordered him to stop healing the sick, he prayed, “Stretch out your hand to heal and let signs and wonders be done in the name of Jesus.”

Jesus has called us to a dangerous task.    Paul said, “For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.” -1 Corinthians 16:9.    However, the real danger would be to let fear control us so that we disobey God.

Obeying God is the safest move you will ever make.  It may seem that you have been plunged into perilous times.  Never forget, you are guarded by the greatest force and love in the universe.   I have no doubt that if you name the name of Jesus today, you have been persecuted.   You may have lost friends and maybe even your job.   The idea of taking a stand for God seems foolhardy.  But you must stand.  Standing will release amazing gifts!   

Satan is pouring out wicked devices but God is pouring out gifts of power and wisdom.   In this dark hour, the Holy Spirit is creating vessels of honor.   Men and women who have said yes to the furnace of purification are coming forth as gold.  They are walking in golden ideas.  They are enforcing the agenda of heaven.  They are plundering Satan and setting captives free.

Listen carefully, Child of God.   There is safety in obedience.  There is peace in obedience.   The threats that the devil throws at you are neutralized by obedience.   Your life may seem at risk when you obey but the opposite is what is true.  You have not walked into danger, you have walked into protection.Manteca 5

Psalm 91: 1-2, “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’”

We go forth to the frontlines of America’s tragedy.  We seek the young hearts and minds that are America’s future.   We did not venture out on our own authority.  We were sent by the great and mighty God of the universe.   We will never back down, back up or back out.

Your gift of love takes you into the battle.  It makes you a part of the miracle.   You are standing beside me winning these precious young souls.   That is why I pray for you daily asking God to save your loved ones, heal your body, and provide for your every need in abundance.

Let me leave you with this urgent last word.   The breakthrough we have always yearned for is here.  Now more than ever, your generous gift of love will have eternal impact.   God bless you.
