Branson: an eyewitness account of last night

Ask anyone who was there last night.  They will tell you it was simply raw power from God healing serious illness.

An eyewitness account

Ask anyone who was there last night.  They will tell you it was simply raw power from God healing serious illness.

Dino was overcome by the anointing as he played—stopping several times to remark about the intense Glory of God that covered him.  By the time Dino was finished leading the people into the presence of God, the entire audience was ready to receive.

Mario spoke directly to a great flaw in the way people seek revival in Branson.  He talked about the fierce faith of Daniel—who in chapter 9 of the book named for him—saw that the days were up for Israel to be set free from Babylon.

“He set himself to fasting and prayer—but not just that, he was focused that now was the time for the King to let the Jews return to their homeland and rebuild Jerusalem.”

Mario went on to say, “We have toyed with revival…flirted with it.  We have sought it without putting a deadline on our dream.  We must have that bodacious spirit to say it is now, it is here!”

The people and the Holy Spirit bore witness to the truth. Soon miracles jumped on people.  Who can forget the man who admitted he was in excruciating pain from neuropathy, diabetes, heart disease.  He could barely stand because of the pain but now he was jumping up and down…destroying all doubt that he was healed.

Another precious sister was rubbing her agonized leg repeating the name of Jesus again and again.  To everyone’s delight she took off running, announcing here complete healing.  Dozens more demonstrated their healings.  The testimonies included a variety of sicknesses but they all claimed to be healed.

Mario told people the urgency of always giving an altar call.  He referred to the notion that everyone is considered Christian in Branson, that’s why few altar calls are given at events here.  “We must call people to Jesus every time we meet—no matter what.”

God broke through and lost souls came to the front as the people gave glorious thanks to God.

Right now we are only hours away from the final meeting here in Branson.  It will be awe-inspiring glory.  Get here if you can.

 

 

Breaking news from Mario Murillo

Today’s news is so bad and the division is so deep that pundits are saying a popular horror movie is helping the nation.  How low do you do go when a horror movie is your comfort?  Since good news is needed this bad, we decided not to wait to make this announcement.    Mario Murillo Ministries is announcing two events that you do not want to miss.  We are going to celebrate!

These are homecomings, they are nights of miracles, they will celebrate, not only what God has done, but what He is about to do.  We have chosen the two most Christmassy locations possible  for our celebrations:  Branson Missouri and San Francisco California.  It is not too early for your to secure your place in these two amazing events.

The first celebration honors Christmas in an atmosphere of ongoing revival and signs and wonders.  Here’s why

It’s Sunday Morning, August 23, 2015 I am preaching to a small congregation in Branson.    I ask a woman to place her hand on the back of the neck of the woman beside her.  Instantly, a bulging vertebra flattens.  The audience bursts forth in praise.

Word spreads.  That night the audience doubles.

August 27th, I call out Pastor John Willis’ diabetes.  Two years later his blood sugar is still normal.

I am forced to stay in Branson.  Crowds form by 4:30PM. Divine healings and dramatic conversions replace local gossip over lunch counters, in stores, and at schools all over Branson.

God can stun an audience into silence—people give each other a knowing look, a look that says, “this is not going to fade with time, no one will ever be able to talk me out of what I just saw.”  It is still going 2 years later!

That’s the atmosphere you will walk into when you join us at the beautiful Chateau on the Lake on Monday November 6th and Tuesday November 7th.  Bring those who need Jesus or a healing.

My Special guest will be none other than Dino.  He will present a worship concert that include your most cherished songs. Including Christmas!  I will bring a message about God’s plan to take back America.  There will be surprise guests as well.

This is a homecoming for the entire MMM family nationwide.  These nights are free but please register!  You can print out your own ticket and have a guaranteed seat for you and your group.

Some sticklers may ask, “how can you celebrate Christmas in early November?”  The loving answer is: “this is Branson silly…it’s Christmas all year round!  Act now, do not be disappointed.  These nights are free but please register!  You can print out your own ticket and have a guaranteed seat for you and your group.  Click here now to print your ticket:

Saturday, December 9th, 2017 we are bringing back the most cherished tradition of Mario Murillo Ministries.  How can I describe it to you?  Think of grabbing a beautiful ornament out of a box in the attic.  As you dust it to its original gleam, you are flooded with emotions and memories.  Yeah, it’s like that.

Our partners used to look forward—all year long—to our Christmas Dinners.  Then the times changed.  Well, those times have changed back.   We get to meet and greet you.  This is the Christmas you remember.

We will rejoice together in an elegant setting over a Christmas Dinner.  We will celebrate the past, sing carols and seize the future with a glorious vision.

San Francisco at Christmas time is the best.  Even this notorious town succumbs to glory of the birth of Christ.  If that were not enough—here is the bottom line:

The regular price for tickets is $50 (they will have to be $75 at the door) but right now you can use the link to buy tickets for half price.  You heard right—you can get

them for $25 each.  Join us Saturday night December 9th at 7 PM at the San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront.

Do not think it is too early for you to get your tickets!  Get them right away so you will not be disappointed.  This is the event you do not want to miss.  Click here to buy your tickets right now!

HOPE FOR OUR BATTERED PRESIDENT

There is no disrespect intended in the title.  No one can deny he is being battered.  This is about why there is hope for our president.  But, true hope is anchored in truth.  There’ll be no Pollyanna pep rally here.  It looks bad, real bad. We begin by facing facts:

-We know that Obama and Hillary loyalists—deeply embedded in Washington—are working feverishly to destroy president Trump.  They are using their dark arts, not just on him, but on you.

-We know that a soulless media has discarded all pretense of objectivity.  They are minions of a mindless coup.  They are no longer capable of even thinking a decent thought toward Trump.

-We know that Trump is struggling to drain the swamp because some Republican Congressmen have stuck a hose back in it, recycling the swamp water.

-We know that Trump make-believers who once supported him abandoned ship at the first sign of trouble.

-We know that the forces behind Mueller and Comey will witch hunt Trump for concocted crimes and refuse to try Hillary for actual crimes.

-We also know that during this overthrow of freedom much of the Church naps under the influence of melatonin ministers.

And yet there is great hope for our president.  I am shouting this question in your ear: HAVE WE FORGOTTEN THAT POWERFUL FRIEND?

Once before evil rose, with its bloody talons on the throat of America, and relief came from an unexpected source: This plea from Benjamin Franklin:

In the beginning of the contest with Great Britain, when we were sensible of danger, we had daily prayers in this room for divine protection. Our prayers, sir, were heard; and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in this struggle must have observed frequent instances of a superintending Providence in our favor. To that kind Providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful Friend?

Here is our powerful friend: Prayer, real prayer, sincere prayer, fervent prayer, unceasing prayer.  Prayer will expose the lies.  Prayer will defeat the traps laid before Trump.  Prayer will shut the mouth of the lion, topple the Washington walls of Jericho, split the Red Sea of fake news, and raise the Lazarus church from the dead.

Our powerful friend is waiting to bring unimaginable help and shocking breakthroughs.

Can I reintroduce you to our powerful friend?  Consider these points:

1. Even if you are the only one praying, it can change everything.  “Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”  James 5:16

When Israel languished in Babylon under the lash of Nebuchadnezzar only Daniel engaged that powerful friend.  He set himself to pray and fast.  His prayer, his solitary prayer, moved Cyrus to fulfill the prophecy of Jeremiah and release the Jews after 70 years of slavery.

The angel told Daniel it was his prayer that did it.  Daniel 10:12 “Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words.”

In the New Testament, one man’s prayer brought the Holy Spirit to the gentiles.  Acts 10: 1 “There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian Regiment, 2 a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always. 3 About the ninth hour of the day he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God coming in and saying to him, ‘Cornelius!’ 4 And when he observed him, he was afraid, and said, ‘What is it, lord?’ So he said to him, ‘Your prayers and your alms have come up for a memorial before God.'”

2. Even if you do not know how to ask, the Holy Spirit will pray through you.  Romans 8: 26, “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”

Think of that!  We don’t know how to pray for this national disaster, but the Holy Spirit does.  Our prayer language carries untold power to interrupt, and alter the affairs of man.  He, the Holy Spirit carries all power and wisdom.  He possesses the precision of prayer that totally escapes us.  He will commandeer our requests to the very throne of God.

3. My final point is the most powerful and encouraging: God told us to pray for our leaders.  1 Timothy 2: 1 “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.”

Why would we expend energy on worry when we can pray?  Why would we sit paralyzed watching the news instead of utilizing prayer to make news?  You, by yourself, have the power to ask and receive, why would you delay praying?  God told us that He is pleased when we pray for our leaders.  Isn’t that the most powerful motivation of all.  Remember our powerful friend.

WHY BRANSON?

Why Branson?  Why would God do this?  Most people who come to Branson love America.  They come to escape the sadness of our decaying nation.  They come in search of an America they once knew—an America that was stolen and they wonder, “Who took away my country?”

They take in the shows and the attractions, but eventually they must go home.  That is when the loss of their nation is most keenly felt.

Why would I come to Branson?  I remember my reaction when local leaders invited me.  My first thought was “no way!” And, “how do I put this delicately?”  So, I explained to them, my ministry is to places where drugs and violence ravage young people.  And furthermore, we were using neutral buildings not churches.  So, that was that.

Then I prayed.  His unmistakable voice said, “You are coming to Branson in August and my Glory will be revealed.”   So as Peter once said, “who was I that I could withstand God?”

It was only after I agreed to come that I heard an amazing prophecy about this place.  Corrie Ten Boom was flying over Missouri.  She looked down and did not know the city that was below her.  Gary Smalley the author heard her ask what town that was below her—it was Branson.  Then he heard her say, “The Glory of God is going to go forth to the world from this place.”

It was 2 years ago this month that I began to preach in Branson.

 The fuse was the healing of two women on Sunday Morning, August 23rd.  I asked one of them to place their hand on the back of the neck of the other.  I told them that there was a vertebra bulging.  Then the neck bulge flattened.  Then both were healed.  Now the audience burst forth in praise.

Word spreads.  That night the audience doubled.  Then something happened in the people.  It would become the trademark of Living Proof Branson.  Hundreds of hearts become one beating heart—a heart with unending passion for Jesus.

The audience itself became the great witness.  Yes, there were healings. The preaching hit lost souls.  None of this matched the power of the people’s hunger.  Their worship was so pure that it removed all resistance to the anointing.Within days, crowds began forming as early as 4:30 every night get seats.  Reports of divine healings, and dramatic conversions replace local gossip over lunch counters, in stores, and at schools.

There is a moment when the power of God can stun an audience into silence—a moment when people give each other a knowing look, a look that says, “this is not going to fade with time, no one will ever be able to talk me out of what I just saw.”  That moment came and never left.

Why am I telling you all of this?  Because now after a long gap, God has ordered me back to Branson.

On Sunday night August 27th, I will join revivalists from all over the Midwest.  People will bring the unchurched—they will bring the sick and addicted to receive miracles.  They will come full of expectation for something—not of this earth—to happen.

This will be a night of towering glory and power—not because of me, but because of prophecy.

You see, the thing about true prophecy is that it can come in waves.  It can surge and them seemingly vanish…but, just when you think it’s over, it can rage up in even bigger flames.  Nothing can stop the Word of God from its appointed goal

If you are supposed to be there don’t let anything stop you.  If you are quickened to pray for this night do not hesitate.  Most of all, bring a soul that needs Christ!  Be on the front row when God visits us in great power and glory.

 

 

 

YOU HAD TO BE THERE

Branson Blast copy

You Had to Be There 

By Mario Murillo

February 2, 2016

Sunday night, January 31st, Faith and Wisdom Church, Branson Missouri: She came will multiple ailments—especially in her shoulders—but what she did next will burn in our memories forever.  More on this in a moment…

The last 48 hours will be bracketed in American history by two events.  As Iowa caucused to elect a president—Branson was crowning Christ King of America.  Only time will tell which of the two will have the greatest impact on the destiny of our nation.

Every revival has its critics.  Naysayers vowed that a 2 month break in Branson would douse the flames of revival.  Instead, the fire got hotter—the people pressed in deeper and signs and wonders emerged with greater force.

Even I had my dark night of the soul before I returned to Branson.  God used John Davis to encourage me with a powerful word of how the people were still excited and waiting for the next level of the Branson Outbreak!

EXPECTANCY

But even before these meetings began there were omens.  People felt an irresistible urge to travel to Branson at a time of year when the city virtually closes down.   Leaders came from Los Angeles and one prominent missionary arrived from the Ukraine.  A holy voice was inviting people from all regions and walks of life.  Some were told they would be revolutionized, others were given promises of healing, still others could not tell you why they were pulled to this place.

Friday night: felt like a reunion of long lost friends and yet it felt as if there was no break in the action.  My message declared the need for EXTRAVAGANT ASKING.  The verse of the hour was John 16: 23 “And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. 24 Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.”   The mandate of God was simple:  Compared to what you should ask of Me…you have asked nothing!

Dino copySaturday morning:  Ron McIntosh preached a timeless call to true revival and the urgency of admitting we are all gifts and ministries in this miracle.  As Jovita Shepphard and the worship team began singing “There is power in the name of Jesus.”  Undiluted Glory drenched the people.  They discarded doubt—ignored their own needs—and wholly embraced their role as soldiers.  Never—and I mean never—have a people sung the phrase THERE’S AN ARMY RISING UP where I was overcome with the reality that an army indeed was rising up.

Sunday Morning:  Pastor Gary McSpadden stoked the flames of revival even higher by declaring to Faith and Wisdom church “We are now a revival church!”  This was a rhema word…for as he spoke it the presence of God invaded the house.  People hit the floor, bodies were healed…you could feel the plans of Satan being foiled and the Kingdom of God overtaking Branson.

Sunday Night:  The house of God filled with people and a crackling expectancy filled the air.  A rare and beautiful mixture of excitement and reverence overcame us all.   The worship team from Faith and Wisdom took the lead and sang as I have never heard them before.

 

shoulders

Then Dino came to the piano.   We had a program but it was about to go up in flames.  As he played, a churning glory filled the room.  The music had a startling impact on the people.   As Dino neared the end of the song people spontaneously began to cheer.  Dino looked at me and said “Mario, people are being healed now!”  Truer words were never spoken—indeed a cluster of healings manifested simultaneously in all parts of the auditorium.   Soon we witnessed spines, hearts, ears, every limb, and cancer and well, the list seemed to go on and on.

The woman I mentioned at the beginning came will multiple ailments—especially in her shoulders—but what she did next will burn in our memories forever.   She raised both her arms to heaven.  Her new shoulders refused to let her lower her arms.  (We have all raised our arms and felt the fatigue and pain after a few minutes.)  Now listen:  She held her arms aloft for almost 40 minutes.  She had a heavenly gaze…if you permit me—I will tell you she seemed to be in a trance.

Branson D copy

I was reminded of Moses holding the rod of God over the battle.   Aaron and Hur helped Moses keep his arms up—in this case the Holy Spirit was doing it.   The entire time that here hand was raised the miracles kept coming.  She was not healing the people…Jesus was.

Lost souls came to Christ…they had gotten best kind of Soul Winning Sermon you could get.  “And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” -1 Corinthians 2: 4

How can I do justice to what happened in the last 48 hours?  I cannot…you had to be there

P.S. The miracle in Branson shows no sign of letting up!  I return to Branson on Sunday 6 PM February 28th!

I am calling an emergency meeting

EMERGENCY

I am calling an emergency meeting

By Mario Murillo

Talk is cheap.  Ranting and raving about what is wrong with America is a placebo—a sugar pill that does nothing about the disease that will soon kill America.   I am in the unshakable grip of a conviction that I must take drastic action.

If you think radical action is not called for—or it will not do any good—you are wrong…not just wrong, dangerously wrong.

Two irresistible forces collided and made my decision to act for me.  The first force is the momentum of our daily blog.  Astoundingly, 1.5 million people have now read the blog.  The blog navigated into uncharted waters by being one of the first national soul winning ministries to take aim against Obama, Islam and compromised Christianity while never forsaking our call to signs and wonders soul winning.

My daily posts reach untold thousands a day and are religiously followed by a vast number of pastors and leaders.  Facebook and other social media have often blocked it but every attempt to silence it has only backfired and amplified its influence.

Soon a core of people was calling for me to lead a fresh national movement.  I have steadfastly refused because I believed that there were other leaders far more qualified, less controversial and more influential than me.

The magnitude of the calls—the compelling language of emails and letters explaining why I should act—convinced me my inaction was doing more harm than good.  I was helpless to answer how I could write about the problem and not do anything tangible to solve the problem.

The other irresistible factor was the supernatural outbreak in Branson MO.  The fire still burns.  The crowds still come.  Branson marked a key moment when miracles joined with a call to national repentance ignited revival.   The Branson Outbreak not only won souls and healed the sick…it ignited pastors and leaders who came from thousands of miles and received FRESH FIRE.   In Branson, it became undeniable that we were to do something for the whole nation.

God has told me to call this emergency meeting.   I am passing on that call to you.  I am calling you for three days of drenching from Heaven that will transform you into an effective weapon.

At first I objected to this mandate from Jesus because I dread most Christian conferences.  The fluff and fantasy flavor of so many conferences is disheartening.  They deal in denial.  They teach spiritual warfare that is theoretical and not usable.  They worship worship—endless singing that never ends in meaningful action.  They deal in fear to sell products.

I am not calling you to any of that.  I am calling you to three days of drenching from Heaven that will transform you into an effective weapon.

 How can I possibly deliver on such a promise?  The answer lies in three powerful elements: PURITY, PRAYER AND POWER.   You will be convicted but not condemned.  You will receive joy unspeakable but not mindless emotion. You will gain direction but not manipulation.  You will obtain encouragement that lasts, insight that works and power that overcomes evil.  You will embrace reformation not mindless information.

To achieve this lofty goal I summed up all of the courage I had—and then some—to ask two men to join me for this emergency meeting.

Todd WhiteTodd White: a young man that you know is being amazingly promoted right now.  He has an incredible message of love and purity that rivets the attention of both young and old.  You do not simply come away from his ministry transformed—you find yourself falling madly in love with God—and overflowing with compassion to reach people.

Lou Engle:  You know his CALL to America.  You know what he is doing to fill the Los Angeles Coliseum this April.  No preacher in America understands prayer like this man.  No one lives intercession more passionately.  No other person carries the authority to activate the Body of Christ in revival prayer like this mighty vessel of God.

Mario Murillo:  I won’t talk about myself.  I will tell you that the final session of this emergency session will be a clear and undeniable demonstration of signs and wonders.  Not only can I assure you that life threatening diseases will be healed but you will be prayed over to be overwhelmed by the Holy Spirit to stir up gifts of supernatural power in your ministry.Lou Engle (2) copy

There is no registration fee for this event but you must register.  We have room for only 2,000 people and already—without advertising 500 people have registered.  However, if you act in response to this message you will not be disappointed.   I cannot overstate how important it is that you act now.  And we have made it easy for you to hold your reservation for this convention.

I said in the very beginning of this message: TALK IS CHEAP!  Take all of the anger you have toward Satan…all of the frustration you feel over the direction of Washington…and all of the love you feel for America and turn it into action.   Be with me in Houston.  Answer God’s Call to make America, once again one nation under God.

 

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.

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.
