IS GOD DOING A SECRET WORK IN YOU?

by Mario Murillo

Many Christians are fed up with the world system—especially the way it operates in the church.  They leave church thinking, “this is not it, there’s something bad wrong here.”  They can’t stomach the glitzy entertainment centers anymore.

They are angry at ego-centric pastors with grandiose, expense and carnal visions.  They accuse them of being distracted—even derailed from their first love.   Disciples are abandoning attraction churches—something revolutionary is happening inside them.  God has started a secret work in them.

Many honest Pastors are also in divine turmoil.  The enemy condemned them for having a smaller church.   After years of blood sweat and tears their churches were battered, broken and diminished because they can’t compete with mega-mania.

And why can’t they compete? It’s because they keep their integrity!   When they see large crowds and big money pour effortlessly into churches that either hide or pervert the Gospel…it’s easy to feel like a fool for staying true.  The Bible says, “Surely I have cleansed my heart in vain, And washed my hands in innocence. For all day long I have been plagued, and chastened every morning.” Psalm 73:13,14.

However, our friend in Psalm 73 came to a great conclusion. After being bull-dozed by the success of the wicked he took action “16 When I thought how to understand this, It was too painful for me—17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; Then I understood their end.”  Many pastor’s  hearts are crying out for more—for a miracle they can’t even describe.

When he entered the sanctuary exhausted and discouraged, the greatness of God began to overtake him.  He saw that there is no version of this battle where Satan wins.  This is a part of the secret work God is doing in pastors!

A growing number of hungry hearts agree—with all its money and crowds—the compromised church did nothing to rebuke America’s sin.  The seeker model was a house of cards against the onslaught on the unborn and marriage.  While men slept, we had millions of abortions and marriage was destroyed.  The last 10 years we have lost battle after battle in government, education and the media.  We are a hopelessly divided nation—to a large extent the pulpit is to blame.

Charles Finney said, “If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the public press lacks moral discernment, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the world loses its interest in Christianity, the pulpit is responsible for it. If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it.”

Deep, deep in my soul where the real knowing happens—I know God is doing something new.  Every atom of my being tells me that God is doing a secret work in His people.  God is finished with hirelings.  He is drawing a remnant out of corruption and into a special, supernatural nearness to Him.  They will empty themselves of everything, every ambition will be burned out but one…to love and please Christ.

Is God doing a secret work in you?  Has God closed you in and stripped you of all enjoyment of lesser things?  Are you in divine frustration because you are going to be a part of something only God can do?

What if millions of Americans get so miserable that they cry out to God in total desperation?  What if their cry is too deep and their hunger is too great to ever be happy in a lukewarm church?  This is why the Holy Spirit is recruiting a new breed…a breed that can be trusted in an awakening.

God is doing a secret work!  He is pulling a remnant to Himself.  He is taking the prophetic core and communing with them—training them—empowering them—preparing them for one last mighty blast of power.  The Holy Spirit sees that our nation hangs by a thread.  The death-rattle is in America’s throat.   Before God allows destruction—He is going to do one last massive miracle.  What will that look like?

-People no one’s ever heard of will come to the forefront.  They will arrive with awesome power and piercing messages.  Not all of them will be regular ministers.  In fact, the majority will not leave their secular careers as God is using them.  Some will be children!

-Strange locations will house massive outpourings.  Churches that have been small for years will become ground zero of God’s presence.   People will flock in from everywhere to these centers of fire and glory.  Stunning signs and wonders will rock entire communities.  These churches will be forced to stay open 24 hours a day.

God is doing a secret work in you.  He is making you miserable to make you into a miracle.  

A.C. Valdez was a child at Azusa Street who later became an evangelist.  God showed him the future and here is what he said:  “All the electrifying adjectives in the dictionary shaken together, pressed down and running over will not begin to describe the soon-to-come, greatest outpouring of the Holy Spirit of all times-what the Bible calls “the latter rain.”  You are going to see lay members carry out an amazing ministry through gifts of the Holy Spirit.  There will be wholesale cures of “incurable” conditions, healings of the blind, deaf, dumb, and handicapped, and creative miracles that will strain the imagination.  For those born without eyes ears, fingers arms or legs-or those who have lost them through disease or accidents- God will make new ones. Many astonishing miracle swill happen to bring on an international Christian breakthrough.”  I believe A.C. Valdez is not talking about a time far off in the future.. he is talking about now because, my friend it is now or never.

NOW FOR SOME REALLY GOOD NEWS

 

Fasten your seat belt, this is really good news. They gathered with excitement and expectation…but none of us were ready for what happened next.

NOW FOR SOME REALLY GOOD NEWS

By Mario Murillo

It is a good sign…they keep adding chairs.  This is happening most of the night.  Another good sign: the house is filled with youth—youth who do not know Jesus—who battle everything devil throws at our children these days.  The best sign is everyone feels special power vibrating in the room.

We are doing a Living Proof Outreach with Ben Lucero, Isaiah Saldivar and the Awakening 209 in Manteca, California.

My message carries an unusual title: When Satan Helps Start Revival.  I begin by describing the strange experience I had after God ordered me to study the youth culture.  My research became torture as I fully grasped the curse Lucifer has laid on an entire generation.

I could actually sense the evil one boasting and threatening.  He was declaring his wicked intentions: “I will addict them.  I will shame them.  I will drain them of hope.  I will kill them.

Then the voice of God roared, BUT I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT ON THEM!  I tell them “I am here tonight because a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit is coming.”  I make a prediction about the emerging army of youth: “You will lay hands on the sick.  You will prophesy.  You will cast out devils.”

Then I explained how Satan is mentally off.  If the devil just wanted to deceive and damn souls he would make everyone content like cattle being fattened for the slaughter.  Instead, he tortures, punishes and makes his victims miserable.  He can’t help himself. Observe California—creating new laws make it impossible for people to be safe or happy.

-Child prostitution is now legal in California.

-Drug dealers must be let out of prison because of bed shortages.

-Violent felons—some who have killed Americans—in California illegally will not be taken into custody.

-In Silicon Valley, American workers are being fired and replaced by foreign workers—and the Americans have to train their replacements!

-California schools—nearly the worst in the nation— are chock full of corruption, mismanagement and loony curriculum.  Reading, writing and arithmetic are out.  Brainwashing about transgenderism, anti-Americanism, and anti-Christian studies are in.

Satan is overplaying his hand in California.  He is creating a misery and despair in the youth of the state that will drive them to Jesus!

Now the audience began to see the proof of what I was saying.  A miracle, pure and simple, hits a young lady.  I love it when the Holy Spirit’s word of knowledge is so clear, piercing and detailed that people no longer see the man speaking—only God.

By the Spirit, the story of her life unfolded.  The precise illnesses of her body and the childhood trauma that caused them all was revealed.  Her total healing rocks the room.

On the heels of her miracle more healings ignite. The vivid details about people’s conditions electrify mighty praise to Jesus the healer.

Suddenly spines straighten, migraine headaches vanish.  A man in the back becomes so excited he just gets up out of his wheelchair and begins a little victory dance over his healing.  A full 60 minutes of unobstructed healings flood the house with shouts of joy and mass weeping.

God saved the best for last.  Never have I seen conviction grip youth like this. It was as if they wanted me to shut up and let them come to Christ.  It was an instant response crowned with total surrender.  They abandoned their sin as if it were nuclear waste. Notice, in the picture, the overwhelming number of young men who came forward.  This is really good news—prophetic news about a coming youth revolution.

THE DEMOCRATS ARE DIGGING THEIR OWN GRAVE

My prediction is that Dems are digging their own grave and their revolt against his legitimacy will, in the short term at least, boost Trump’s popularity. Most Americans will conclude he is honestly trying to fulfill the mandate he won and that the fevered rush to destroy him is neither principled nor patriotic.

THE DEMOCRATS ARE DIGGING THEIR OWN GRAVE

By Michael Goodwin

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, the top Dems in Congress, led a raucous demonstration Monday night, as if they are community organizers. And Obama couldn’t bear the irrelevance after eight days out of office and felt compelled to encourage disruptions.

This is Third World behavior and it’s now the M.O. of one of America’s two political parties.

Then there’s California, the epicenter of Dem strength. Radicals there, spurred on by pro-Mexico immigrants, are ginning up an effort to split from the United States and they might get a proposal on the ballot. I say we take their wine and let them go.

If California secedes and its 55 electoral votes come off the board, Dems will never win another American election. On the other hand, Hillary Clinton could become president of the breakaway state and the rest of us would be free of the Clinton stain.

Secession is one way the swamp could drain itself. Sally Yates’ way is another.

The acting attorney general was rightfully sacked the instant after she climbed a soapbox and refused to defend Trump’s executive order in court. It would have been a more admirable gesture if she had the decency to resign. Instead, she thought she could defy the president and keep the job.

Her choice was not a minor act of insubordination. It was a public challenge to the constitutional authority of the president, a power left to Congress and the judiciary.

As a result, she was shunned and hid in disgrace. Oh, wait, that’s what would happen in a better world.

In this one, Democrats hailed her as a “patriot” amid predictions a political star is born.

My prediction is that Dems are digging their own grave and their revolt against his legitimacy will, in the short term at least, boost Trump’s popularity. Most Americans will conclude he is honestly trying to fulfill the mandate he won and that the fevered rush to destroy him is neither principled nor patriotic.

There is a catch: Our cultural impatience won’t give Trump endless time or big room for error. He must pick his fights with discretion and wage them with smart, methodical moves that bring clear results.

Equally key, he can’t become a prisoner of Washington. While social media is important, he must get out of town regularly to meet people where they live and remind them that he’s fighting their fights.

He should continue to court core Democrats, especially members of manufacturing unions and open-minded black and Latino voters.

If he does all that, and if he’s lucky, America will be great again. That’s what matters.

IT’S NOT TRUMP THEY ARE GOING AFTER…IT’S YOU.

You will not about read this in any Christian magazine.  The radical left has declared a very unusual kind of war on us—a war that Christian leaders will not admit and are totally unprepared to fight.

The Trump victory has inflamed the left so much that they totally rejecting the election and disregarding the rule of law.  Here is what you may already know:

Fake news: NBC poured 400 million dollars into Buzz Feed.  Buzz Feed released fake news that portrayed Trump as a pervert in Russia.  Only Trump was never there and the entire incident was made up to destroy his reputation.

CNN reacted to this in an underhanded way that allowed the narrative to spread while feigning journalistic innocence.

Fake boycotts:  Pop singers who were never invited to the inauguration claimed to boycott it.  Black celebrities like Steve Harvey were eviscerated just for meeting with Trump.  40 Democratic leaders are boycotting the event.

Fake California revolution:  Behaving as if America had been taken over in a coup, California has declared itself a sanctuary state for the resistance.  They have hired former Attorney General Eric Holder to fight all Trump legislation.  California Congresswoman Maxine Waters is moving for impeachment.   Trump is not even in office yet!

cali_sink

Fake Obama peaceful transference of power:  Equally despicable is Obama.  Obama is filled with rage about Trump.  He is frantically using his pen to lay as many landmines as possible for Trump.  He releasing cop killers, terrorists, and traitors—a rogue’s gallery that has but one thing in common—they hate America.

However, all this pales before the news I am about to share with you.  What you must understand—the thing you must get—is, they are not going after Trump—they are going after you.  I am talking about 80% of all Evangelicals and 63 million voters.

They are not calling Trump a racist—they are calling you a racist.  They are not saying Trump hates Gays, Mexicans, and Muslim immigrants—they are saying you do.

According to them: Voting for Trump makes us totally despicable racists and haters who must have our rights revoked.

The 4-alarm leftist hissy fit is only the opening act.  Expect strikes, violent demonstrations, and a towering litany of acts of “civil disobedience.”

Obama is not going away—He will lead the charge.  His true mission to undermine America will kick in now that he is no longer restrained by the presidency.  He will lead a confederation of movie stars, politicians, billionaires, Muslim leaders and minions in the United Nations.

Trump legislation will be throttled at every turn.  The media will launch a withering nonstop assault on every word he says.

As I said, they are not going after Trump they are going after you and me.  If this is true how then should we prepare?  Here are my heartfelt convictions of what we must do now.

yes-they-are-going-after-you

  1. Don’t let them bully you, learn from history.   It is 1776 all over again. British rule then is very much like leftist rulers now.  Loyalists joined British forces in oppressing the colonists and told them that their elected officials were not valid.

The leftist elites are not British monarchs or red coats but they are telling us what we can and cannot believe.  They are seizing our rights.  T.V. Networks and billion dollar companies are working to overrule a free and fair election.

The challenge of the church today is the same as it was in 1776.  Revolutionary war Christians understood that they could not be on the sidelines as their rights were being destroyed.   Their call was to stand with the freedom fighters.

kick-in

 

  1. We must fight with the weapons of God! Thank God, we are not waging physical war but we are fighting a spiritual war. To fight, we must pray and speak the Word of God.  We cannot afford to listen to those who say we should not speak out against Islam, immorality or far left totalitarianism.

Some ask “won’t this make us look unloving and turn lost souls off to the Gospel?”  On the contrary, when we speak out with the power of the Holy Spirit it will shatter the strong delusion that is pervading our society.

Moreover, the early colonists knew they were building a nation that would be a lighthouse of the Gospel to the world.  The iron curtain that these celebrities and media tyrants are ringing down on us will silence the Gospel and leave Israel at the mercy of all her enemies.

  1. Build on prophecy: If you believe that Trump is a miracle that is a type of King Cyrus then act like it! Seize this divine opportunity to stand with policies that best reflect our values.

With the very same breath that we call Satan a liar…we must call falsehood out!  Preachers all over America must ring the bell of liberty in their pulpits by calling out the intellectual frauds who would remove our freedom.

They are not harmless actors and singers, they agents of tyranny that are not coming after Trump they are coming after you…but if God be for you who can be against you?

California Forces LGBT Family Lessons on Second-Graders

California Forces LGBT Family Lessons on Second-Graders

07-21-2016

The California State Board of Education voted unanimously to include a comprehensive study of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender history in public schools, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The curriculum will be taught to elementary, middle, and high-school students in history and social-science classes.

National Review reported that beginning in second grade, students will learn about different family structures. That includes families with LGBT parents.

The framework states the goal is to help students “locate themselves and their own families in history and learn about the lives and historical struggles of their peers.”

In fourth grade, students will learn about the history of LGBT people in California and the country’s first gay rights organizations in the 1950s.

Fourth graders will also be taught about Harvey Milk, “a New Yorker who was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977 as California’s first openly gay public official,” National Review reports. The study of Milk is incorporated into learning about immigrants who come to California.

Under the new curriculum, the role of gender in history will be taught to eighth grade students, including a study on how the Western frontier made way for substantial changes in gender norms.

In high school, students will learn about the first time a sex-reassignment surgery was performed, homosexuals in the military, “LGBT-oriented subcultures,” and “the pioneering role of gay politicians,” National Review reports.

In addition, as part of the LGBT curriculum, high school students will learn about the Supreme Court decision that overturned sodomy laws.

SEE WHY WE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT THIS ONE NIGHT IN TURLOCK FOR YEARS TO COME. 

By Mario Murillo

We will be talking about this night in Turlock for years to come—not because I will be there—because someone else will be there…

How do I know we will be talking about this night for years?   Because of the nights we have already had—all over California.  People of all ages and backgrounds have packed out halls.  They will flat out tell you sickness and addiction left their bodies.  They will describe how the music and worship hit them…and how the message transformed them out of fear and confusion.

Most of all…they will say—they left knowing that the power of God is real and—they will never be the same.

If you are wondering how this is possible…it is possible because Jesus Christ does miracles every time He shows up.  He will be there!  That is why we will not forget this night in Turlock for years to come.

Why should we be surprised? Jesus said, “Wherever two or three are gathered in my Name, there I am in the midst of them.”- Matthew 18:20.  These words started a movement—the only movement in history where the founder still attends every meeting.

But, you may say, “meetings like this are fake, boring and out of date.”   No, actually this night will be completely different…and it could not be more “on time.”   We are watching violence, addiction, sick ideas and hatred ripping our cities apart.   Our leaders have run out of answers.  We need a greater power source than human solutions.

Jesus proved He was the son of God by doing the things no one had done before.  He also said His work would continue.  “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.” – John 14:12

You don’t have to take my word for any of this.  Why not come and see for yourself—better yet, bring someone you know who needs a miracle in their body or soul.  Remember, it is only one night and it could change everything. 

There is no fee or registration required.  See you there.

We will be talking about this night for years to come

I am talking about this Friday night May 13th.  We will be talking about this night for years to come—not because I will be there—because someone else will be there… 

How do I know we will be talking about this night for years?   Because of the nights we have already had—all over California.  People of all ages and backgrounds have packed out halls.  They will flat out tell you sickness and addiction left their bodies.  They will describe how the music and worship hit them…  and how the message transformed them out of fear and confusion. 

They will tell you a lot of things.  But most of all…they will say—they left knowing that the power of God is real and—they will never be the same. 

If you are wondering how this is possible…it is possible because Jesus Christ does miracles every time He shows up.  He will be there!  That is why we will not forget this night in Bakersfield for years to come.
