PRAYER THAT STRIKES

The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ inflicted the greatest wound evil has ever known. Today, in America, we need to strike evil another massive blow.  To do this, we must realize that we are in a war, albeit an invisible war.

Most Christians are paralyzed by the idea that there is actually an invisible war raging all around them, even though they find themselves overwhelmed by their daily lives.  They are losing their health and their mind because of supernatural stress, yet, for all of this, they refuse to acknowledge the war that is costing them dearly. But see it they must, or they will live out the rest of their days discouraged, helpless and exhausted.

Yes, it is chilling to realize that something supernatural hates you and those you love.  It is even more frightening to discover how much destruction is being done to our nation by evil principalities and powers.

The Bible shows us that a floodgate of misery can be opened by supernatural evil that infiltrates a culture.  Every child of God needs to study the ways these satanic spirits can be confronted and defeated.

The Bible has methods for dealing with Satan’s agenda.  God yearns to reveal Himself as a mighty Warrior on behalf of those who will take the time to become armed and dangerous.  But instead of heeding the cry of the Holy Spirit, most believers are content to live in dread, defeat, and confusion.

The evil one, of course, loves to operate unseen and wants you to live on the defensive.  He wants you reacting instead of acting.  He wants you to feel that darkness is inevitable and that the works of vile men cannot be reversed.  In fact, the wicked one wants you to believe that the overpowering demands of your everyday life are so great that you cannot even consider being a warrior in the larger battle for the soul of a nation.  What better way is there to dismantle America, than to prevent the army of God from ever entering the theater of battle?

Let me speak plainly.  Have you had enough?  Are you ready to reopen the Bible and apply its message of supernatural victory to your life?

Your road map to victory begins by asking the right questions.

1. What is God’s will for me as a warrior?  There are other, bigger questions that we must answer, but this one comes first.  The Bible tells you that your Heavenly Father wants you strong, securing the thoughts and emotions in your mind, to force them to submit to truth.  Confess that your Father wants to make you a mighty warrior by training for victory and living in a culture of victory that has been forged by habitual breakthroughs in battle.

Ephesians 6:10-13 says, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil, for we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

You must settle the question of your victory in this war.  Yes, you must fight, but you are designed for triumph in battle.  Admit that the evil one has had the upper hand because of your ignorance of both the Word of God and the heart of God, and that you are done with this ignorance once and for all.

That you may not yet know how to fight, does not matter at this point.  You may not yet have your emotions under control.  What you need now is to know beyond knowing that God your Father has assured you inward and outward victory.

2. Now you must take your stand. “Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;  above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6: 14-17).

This is your personal declaration of war.  Some balk at this, because the idea that they are challenging Satan awakens fear.  “If I announce my opposition to Satan I open myself up to attack.”  This is simply not true.  You are already under attack.  The only difference is that now you are fighting back.

It is a disastrous myth to think that if you leave Satan alone, he will leave you alone.  That is like believing that the bull will not charge, because you are a vegetarian.

Since you are going to be attacked anyway, you must learn how to return fire.  Nothing matches prayer for retaliation against Satan.

3. Now we must begin praying prayers that get through and prevail. The truth that God has limited some of His activity to our prayers is a great mystery.  However, we do not have the luxury of waiting until we unravel this mystery before we avail ourselves of the great privilege of prevailing prayer.

When Jesus taught us that we need to pray, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,” the clear message is that God is waiting for us to enforce the victory He won on the Cross.   Simply put, heaven comes to earth in ‘segments’ as the product of fervent prayer.   We are commissioned, empowered and trained to take high-value ground that was once the unchallenged property of Satan.

It is urgent that you see why Paul, after telling us to be strong and to put on all of the armor in Ephesians 6, concludes his admonition with verse 18: “praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.”

‘Prayer’ and ‘prevailing prayer’ can look the same, but they are very different.  You may have been praying, but then settled for something that is not the will of God.  The angel told Daniel, Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words. 13 But the ruler of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, one of the chief rulers, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia” (Daniel 10:12-13).

Whatever it takes: The modern spoon-fed believer cannot imagine warring for 21 minutes let alone 21 days.  Yet, it is this tenacity in intercession that changes the world.  You pray fervently, utterly and without regard to time or personal sacrifice because your marriage, your children, grandchildren, and the miracles that God yearns to bring, are worth it!

Consider that, being an Old Testament saint, Daniel did not have the risen savior, Jesus, interceding at the right hand of God.  The victory of Calvary was still a future event and its eternal benefits were not yet in place.  How much more then should we be even bolder in prayer than Daniel!

First you counterpunch against the attacks on your soul.  Then you take on the attacks against your loved ones.  You enlarge your retaliation to envelope health, finances, taxes, enemies, and everything that is in your life.

With each victory comes a deeper resolve.  You exhale, knowing you are finally on the offensive, driving back devils that you once tolerated for reasons you cannot even remember.  The days of dread are in your rear view mirror.

Yes, you will be attacked again, but now instead of dread, you welcome the opportunity to exercise your new found boldness in prayer and to see the new kinds of intervention that the Holy Spirit will unfold.

4. Now you have earned the right to call America back to God through prayer!  You can ask questions you never asked before. Arthur Matthews said, “Questions again flood our minds.  How do these spirit powers exert their influence in society?  Where do they get in?  Is there a distinctive modus operandi that would help us identify them?  What can or what should we be doing to control and prevent their intrusion?”

Here is a historical fact that should deeply sober every American Christian: Israel lost the knowledge of God in one generation.  Judges 2:10,11 says, “When all that generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation arose after them who did not know the Lord nor the work which He had done for Israel. Then the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served the Baals.”

America is following in their footsteps.  The forces of Satan in our government are guilty of waging outright war on the things that made America great.  Dr. Ben Carson, formerly the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and currently Secretary of HUD under Trump, said, “Let’s say somebody… wanted to destroy this nation, I would create division among the people, encourage a culture of ridicule for basic morality and the principles that made and sustained the country, undermine the financial stability of the nation, and weaken and destroy the military. It appears, coincidentally, that those are the very things that are happening right now.”

Satan has saved his very best lie for God’s remnant. Remember that Jesus said that, if it were possible, even the chosen people of God would be deceived (Matthew 24:24). Satan is using a special lie to deceive the elect of God!  Satan is even imitating the voice of the Holy Spirit to tell this lie!  He is doing this because this remnant is the final firewall stopping his agenda for America.

In a nutshell, here is the deceiving message from the devil to the righteous core:  “The best days of the Church are behind you.  God must judge America to allow the return of Christ. God cannot bring another Great Awakening to America, because He does not want to.” We are being told that the times are too hard, the task is too great, and we are too small.

We are seeing every day that certain forces active in our government have dreadful plans to overrule the Constitution and come after our freedoms.  What do we do with this information?  The saints in Damascus heard Saul of Tarsus was coming with authority to arrest and execute Christians. Those believers could have cited end-time prophecy to justify running and hiding, but instead they took their stand.  They set themselves to fervent prayer that unleashed the power of heaven on the situation, and God sent a light as bright as the sun that knocked Saul to the ground and ended the threat.  As a bonus to this victory, the Church received a new Apostle named Paul.

In this hour, our revival prayer must be mingled with two seemingly opposing attitudes:  An utter desperation that believes that God must do it again, and a violent confidence that God will do it! Hallelujah!

PLEASE PRAY FOR THE 6 TENT CRUSADES FROM MARCH THROUGH OCTOBER ALONG HIGHWAY 99 THE CORRIDOR OF GLORY.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What Every Christian Must Understand

What you are watching unfold in the House of Representatives is not simple hatred, it is something deeper. It is total desperation. The Democrat elite are feverishly conducting a sham trial because they don’t know what else to do. However, this impeachment is simply one more of the same tactics they have been using all along.

It all began the night Hillary lost. They never imagined Trump would win. They had no contingency plan in case Trump won. Not even the hare when he was racing the tortoise was this overconfident. They were caught flat-footed. That November night in 2016, they became the party with no plan.

Then their worst nightmare began to materialize. Trump began making America great again. They became so desperate that they rooted for the economy to fail. They actually wanted poverty to increase. But most of all, they began to lie—and lie big.

Their next act was straight out of Hitler’s propaganda minister’s playbook.  Joseph Goebbels said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it, and you will come to believe it yourself. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Today, truth is the enemy of the Democrat Party.

Let’s examine the similarities in Goebbels tactics on behalf of the National Socialist Party and the American Socialist Party.

1. How is it possible for something like the Russian collusion hoax—which has been so utterly discredited—to still have so many who believe in it? Simple: Democrats told the lie often enough for people to believe it.

2. How is it possible that some of the Democrat elite believe it themselves? Goebbels was right, eventually you will come to believe it yourself.

3. The Democrat Party has shut down free speech. They work to destroy witnesses who oppose them. They called for a total information blackout to bury the consequences of their failures in those big cities where they are in power. Their failed policies have bankrupted those cities and turned them into hell holes. To maintain the lie, they summoned their cronies in the media, entertainment, and education to declare war on free speech.

But, when you have the truth you don’t shut down debate. You welcome opposing views. But they can’t, because any scrutiny reveals their monstrous failure.

4. From the moment Trump entered the White House they began their campaign of terror. They have used endless bogus investigations to deflect attention from their abysmal failures. Their tactic of misdirection has kept you and their constituents from seeing that they were doing absolutely nothing for the American people.

How did they get away with doing nothing?  Again, it’s simple: from their perches of power, leftists buttressed the ‘do-nothing congress.’  And their allies in the Fake News were silent. Hollywood celebrities glorified anything that was done to stop Trump. Democrats took an oath to serve the American people, and then lied through their teeth.

How right was Goebbels? “The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.”

5. They began to ask born again Christians to get out of the way. They celebrate abortions, calling them ‘magical.’ They attack the church at every turn. They check off every box of immorality. They have embraced atheism as they have made it crystal clear that believers are their enemy.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/12/09/abortion-funders-christmas-theme-abortions-are-magical/

6. And finally, there is the impeachment debacle. When you look into Nancy Pelosi’s eyes you see perplexity. She knows it is all smoke and mirrors. She can barely read the charges against Trump with a straight face. Democrats are starting to show liar fatigue…

So why do they keep going? For the same huge reason they started down this road to perdition: they fear Trump will be reelected.  They know they have a clown car full of candidates. Even Michael Bloomberg believes it. He said, “Trump will eat them alive.”

Here’s what truly terrifies them: If Trump can get this much done even with the total war Democrats have waged on him…what could he do in a second term with a mandate the Democrats can’t stop, and they face the specter of losing power in the House and Senate.

Why do they keep going? Why are they risking a tsunami of a backlash from the American people? Why persist in doing something that is so disastrous?

For the answer to that, we can turn to Macbeth. In the play, Macbeth kills King Duncan, Banquo, and Macduff’s family in response to the prophesies of the witches. He killed Duncan to make the first of the prophesies come true. Then he killed Banquo and Macduff in a vain attempt to PREVENT the other prophesies from coming true.

After these murders, he dreams he is in a river of blood. What he says next explains the Democrat Party’s descent into total self-destruction: “I am in blood stepped in so far that should I wade no more, returning were as tedious as go o’er.” Democrats feel that. They are in so deep that they feel they have no choice but to go through with it.

So once again, they must lie, break the law, cast aside rules and abandon all reason, because backing down now will be as tedious as going through with it.

You are watching spiritual warfare in its purist form. Every Christian must understand this or they cannot take the proper stand against it.

Let every believer learn a lesson. You may be able to defeat the prophecies of witches…but you cannot defeat the prophecies of God.

“Many are the plans of man, but it is God’s plans that will stand.” (Proverbs 19:21)

SEPARATE TO ME

A massive number of Christians are experiencing a strange miracle.  And we are discovering that this was predicted—in detail.

The Holy Spirit is separating them. He has selected them for special grace and power to accomplish mighty acts at the edge of history. They will be uniquely equipped to face the sophisticated evil of our time. But it all begins by making peace with the Holy Spirit and restoring His rightful place in our hearts and in the church.

Take a close look at the book of Acts and you will see the disarming down-to-earth way they related to the Holy Spirit. While they revered Him deeply, they had a sense of His nearness and His involvement in their day to day operation. They behaved as if He was close by and they could almost see Him. Most of all, they anticipated His instructions.

 Acts 13:2 “As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” 3 Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away. 4 So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to Cyprus.”

Millions are now hearing the same call: “SEPARATE TO ME!” The Holy Spirit told David Wilkerson about this coming separation, and how pockets of prophetic people would huddle together across our nation.

He said, “God-hungry people are saying among themselves, “This is not it. There is something more. The bigness and the sensationalism of it all has left us empty and dry. We want more. More than entertainment. More than big, showy buildings. More than a shallow celebrity gospel. We want deeper values. We want to see Jesus. We want spotless robes of righteousness. We want to go back to doing things in total dependence on God.”

Many of these people were chased out of churches that were once fiery, Spirit-filled churches that had taken on a new ‘seeker-friendly’ format. They saw their church now focused on church growth, down-playing the presence of the Holy Spirit, and only designed to attract outsiders. They felt punished for wanting a move of God.

They are fed up with the world system—especially when they see it operating in the church.  They can’t stomach the glitzy entertainment centers anymore. They believe we have no time to play games.  They are frustrated that church is catering to the lukewarm members.

They are done with egocentric preachers with grandiose, expensive and carnal visions that having nothing to do with soul winning or revival.  They accuse these preachers of being distracted—even derailed from their first love.   Disciples are abandoning “attraction” churches, and something revolutionary is happening inside them.  God is starting a fresh movement.

David Wilkerson explained more of what he saw coming: “God is revealing to all praying people that a glorious new work of the Spirit is about to break forth. God is going to shake everything that can be shaken. He will tear down the old political, backslidden, ecclesiastical system. He will disown the formal, super-church structure. He will chase out of His presence all who are engaging in self-promoting ministries.”

The praying people he mentions will force changes.  They are a new breed for a new need. They are frustrated, hungry, and their numbers are growing fast.  They are coalescing around certain truths: fasting, repentance, and holy surrender to Christ.

Smith Wigglesworth saw this separation coming way back in 1927.  He predicted the same group of people that  David Wilkerson described: “All the people which are pressing into and getting ready for this glorious attained place where they shall not be found naked, where they shall be blameless, where they shall be immovable, where they shall be purified by the power of the Word of God, have within them a consciousness of the very presence of God within, changing their very nature and preparing them for a greater thing, and causing them to be ready for translation.”

Both men believed that this gathering unto the Holy Spirit would begin after a great falling away.

Wigglesworth said, “We have to see that these days have to come, before the Lord can come. There has to be a falling away. There are in the world two classes of believers. There are believers which are disobedient, or I ought to say there are children which are saved by the power of God which are disobedient children. And there are children which are just the same saved by the power of God, who all the time are longing to be more obedient.”

I know that the moment predicted by these two men is upon us. Every day, I receive another account of frustrated saints who have been suddenly driven to hours of prayer. Many are fasting. A vast number are about to find each other in a true outbreak of holy fire. Millions of believers across America feel they are being separated to the Holy Spirit for some amazing, yet unknown, reason. David Wilkerson talked about a “work” within us. Smith Wigglesworth talked about “pressing in.” The image is clear…the Holy Spirit is stirring souls across the nation. They are done with the overuse of big screens, skinny jeans, and fog machines.

The weapons of our warfare are not carnal! But mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds!

These frustrated saints are being pulled away from fleshly things, even as a spirit of prayer is overtaking them. They are surrendering to a special work of the Holy Spirit. A fresh work of the Holy Spirit has begun, and the impact will soon be widespread in all the earth!

THE LEFT

Global warming, Russian collusion, White Supremacy/Racism—the trifecta of the Left—the constant drum beat of the “woke.” Always screamed about very loudly, but never defended by rational conversation or facts. Their endless plaintive cry, body language, and screeching confirm the sad, sad truth that emotion rules over substance and logical reason.

Global warming.  The myth of Climate Change took a hit today from an unlikely source: Joel N. Myers, Founder and CEO of AccuWeather.com.  He stated, “There is no evidence so far that extreme heat waves are becoming more common because of climate change, especially when you consider how many heat waves occurred historically compared to recent history.”

Hysterics are the order of the day for the Left, prompting Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to say that the world will end in 12 years.  Yet, the Loony Left wants to prosecute anyone who doubts their weather claims. They want oppressive policies that would limit freedom and even imprison detractors of their theories. They are not trying to fix anything, they are trying to take total control through myths.

They will fly their polluting jets to conferences that conclude that you are a vile person for not changing your lifestyle and limiting your carbon footprint.

Russia collusion. The people who live in the districts that Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, and Gerrold Nadler represent must not need better schools, more jobs, clean water, stronger law enforcement or anything you normally elect someone to work for. These political hacks are literally doing nothing but chasing a hoax. They are deranged in their wish for Trump to be impeached. How the people in these districts can tolerate this is truly dumbfounding. I say again, they are doing nothing for you, while they chase a crime that simply doesn’t exist.  25 months and 25 million dollars later, there is no collusion. Yet, these three demand further investigations.

White Supremacy: They say White Supremacy fuels the mass shootings.  Let’s look at what the media will not tell you. Connor Betts gunned down nine people and injured dozens more in Dayton, Ohio, on Sunday, and this warped loner declares himself, in his notebook, to be a servant of ‘evil incarnate’ and rants about everything from schizophrenia to satanic rituals and massacres.

The pages read, in part: “I am the servant of the serpent evil incarnate, flesh consumer, light destroyer, fueled by hate, rage (is) my strength, distrust (is) my shield.”

But, this mass murderer also supported Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and ANTIFA. The media buries the news of a left-wing mass shooter because it doesn’t advance the narrative of White Supremacy and who Trump supporters really are.

Then, the Left cites economic injustice and poverty in the inner city as proof of White Supremacy. The only problem is, they have been in charge of these neighborhoods—they have spent the money—they have controlled the people. If this is their evidence, then White Supremacy either doesn’t exist or they are the White Supremacists.

Show me a major U.S. city run by Democrats for decades, and I will show you a city in decay, filled with crime, murder, drugs, and poverty. Example: Cities such as Chicago, St. Louis, and Baltimore, where every week there are mass shootings that dwarf the mass shootings in Gilroy, El Paso, and Dayton.  Yet, the national news outlets never report them.  Currently, in Democrat run Chicago, there are 51 criminals who have been charged with first degree murder, who have been put under “house arrest.”  The message: Murder someone, and the worst that can happen to you is: you will be sent to your room.

CHICAGO, IL – DECEMBER 31: Residents, activists, and friends and family members of victims of gun violence march down Michigan Avenue carrying nearly 800 wooden crosses bearing the names of people murdered in the city in 2016 on December 31, 2016 in Chicago, Illinois. Nearly 800 people have been murdered in the city this year and more than 4000 shot as the city copes with its most violent year in two decades. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)

Is the Left trying to fix any problem that actually exists? The answer is a deafening, NO. They are far too busy creating problems. Their victims so far are:

 The nuclear family: A source of social stability and well-being for thousands of years. They shattered it with everything from shaming moms who wanted to stay home, redefining marriage, gender fluidity, drag queen story hours, gender-free bathroom crusades, and the oppression of churches. The list could go on and on.

Economic opportunity: The Left has never met a tax or a new regulation they didn’t like. Bloating government to strangle small business is their stock-in-trade. Given a free hand, their economic policies have always led to recession.

The human spirit: Convincing minority youth that they are victims destroys hope and incentive. The Left has turned self-pity into an art form. It was inevitable that they would worship Socialism. Socialism at its heart is for those who believe they can’t make it on their own without food stamps, free cell phones, and the bottomless government grab bag. They have been convinced they will not survive without these programs.

Is the Left trying to eradicate poverty? About as much as the drug dealer is trying to eradicate addiction. It is only by inducing fear, self-pity, and entitlement, that they maintain control.

America has been taken over by a Leftist spirit that is the antithesis of everything America was founded on. We are not engaged in a debate between the ideologies of the Right or the Left—we are in a war between addiction, degradation and atheism versus  liberty, decency, and a future.

Look at them. Do you see solutions, inspiration, openness, or compassion?  No you do not. You see a Party of delusional Don Quixotes who are tilting at windmills, while they trample honor, truth, and decency in their quest for a nonexistent cause.

Yet, in this fog of delusion, there are some hopeful signs of life.  Roughly 400 pastors and faith leaders will descend on Lynchburg, Virginia later this week as two major evangelical forces unite together in the beginning efforts of a 2020 national ground game aimed at restoring Judeo-Christian principles across the country and mobilizing an evangelical army of pastors to lead the way.

The closed-door, two-day event will be held at Liberty University, one of the largest evangelical universities in the country and is organized by the American Renewal Project, led by influential political mechanic David Lane. They’re bringing in the pastors for the affair, many of whom are expected to take part in a political training session as they mull over whether to run for local or statewide office.

Pray for an awakening like this to spread to churches all over America!

Pray like you know what is at stake!

 

 

EVEN WITH

A Trump loss the next election is too terrible to imagine. But even if he wins, we will desperately need a true revival in America. Tragically, the church doesn’t know the difference between true and false revival.

Many of the things the church does today simply do not matter. They don’t point in the trajectory of revival. In fact they point in the opposite direction.   Many things done by churches are impressive, even successful—I am saying they will not save America

We know the times are evil.  But what can we do about it?  That’s the number one question I am asked.  My answer is, “We need to stop toying, speculating, and paying lip service to revival.  We need to seize a true revival.”

The real culprit today is false revival.  There is untold damage done when we take a good meeting and market it as revival.  To characterize a good meeting as revival is like filling a bath tub with salt water, and calling it the Pacific Ocean.

I am not telling you that your ‘good meeting’ is not true revival—because history and our culture are both telling you it is not.  History says revival overflows church walls and makes deep impacts on society, which is not happening.   And when our culture swats away our church meetings and continues to careen into deeper wickedness—it is telling us we are not in revival.

There is one thing—above all others—that is stopping true revival: We don’t have a pure motive.  We want it for all the wrong reasons.  If revival is our ticket to getting church growth, emotional experiences, self-promotion, formulas, and wealth, our prayers are like nuclear waste to God.

The most well known verse on revival begins with a huge ‘IF’:  2 Chronicles 7:14 “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

IF you truly yearn for the miracle that would stop America’s slide into oblivion—IF you wish for an act of the Holy Spirit so real and widespread that it impacts crime, injustice, addiction, and despair—then listen to this lesson from history:

In 1904, American leaders were enthralled by the revival that was then taking place in Wales.  Hundreds of thousands were converted, and the morals of the nation were transformed.  American church leaders wanted a revival like that here.  But they tried to buy it.

These enterprising pastors and businessmen invested in massive campaigns.  They were dismal failures.  So much so, that the very concept of revival fell into disfavor.

Two years later, they realized their mistake.  When widespread brokenness gripped the leaders, aided by a pure motive, they cried out and heaven heard them.   One of the catalysts to this awakening was a man named James Burns.

James Burns wrote a powerful book entitled “Revivals, Their Laws and Leaders.” In 1909 he wrote, “To the church, a revival means humiliation, a bitter knowledge of unworthiness and an open and humiliating confession of sin on the part of her ministers and people. It is not the easy and glorious thing many think it to be, who imagine it fills pews and reinstates the church in power and authority.

“It comes to scorch before it heals; it comes to condemn ministers and people for their unfaithful witness, for their selfish living, for their neglect of the cross, and to call them to daily renunciation, to an evangelical poverty and to a deep and daily consecration. That is why a revival has ever been unpopular with large numbers within the church. Because it says nothing to them of power such as they have learned to love, or of ease, or of success; it accuses them of sin, it tells them they are dead, it calls them to awake, to renounce the world and to follow Christ.”

America, at last, had found a pure motive for revival. New York, Chicago, Los Angeles (at Azusa Street), and many other cities saw amazing things.  Denver, Colorado, and Portland, Oregon, which are currently bastions of marijuana, atheism, and rampant liberalism, shut down businesses at noon so everyone could go and pray.  Crime dropped to virtually nothing.  Bars sat empty, and millions went to prayer everyday across America.

Until our knees buckle beneath the horror of our nation’s sin and the blasphemy of our cheap grace fades away, our request for revival will be denied.

But I still feel faith for the church in America to turn around. More importantly, God holds out great hope to us.  Let me share two things that forever killed my doubts about revival.  One was a scripture, Matthew 12:20: “A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench, till He sends forth justice to victory.”

Jesus will not snuff out the least flicker of revival. When anyone asks for revival from a pure heart, God says, “Yes,” and begins the process. He takes you at your word.

The other thing that occurred was a revelation I received as I was standing at the beach and the gentle foam of the ocean lapped over my toes. The voice of the Lord said, “This gentle wave is the cousin of the tsunami.”

The smallest flame in the smallest church will not be quenched by Jesus.  Given the proper opportunity, the Spirit of God will fan it into a raging fire of righteousness.  The gentlest wave can grow into a tidal wave when anyone hosts within them the presence of God. But they must obey His step-by-step orders, and they must refuse to exploit what God is doing among them.

These two truths are resonating powerfully within me now.  I want them to blow up in your spirit as well! Do you truly want revival?  Then what are you waiting for?

You will seek Me and find Me, when you seek Me with all your heart.  (Jeremiah 29:13)

 


SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! JOIN US IF FRESNO

ALL ON THE LINE

This is not a figure of speech or a literary device—or an attempt to manipulate a reaction out of you. Today, Mario Murillo Ministries lays it all on the line. That is a stone cold fact.

For the last 12 months, I’ve carried a deep anticipation.  I knew there was a day of reckoning in my future. That day is today.

Months ago, I felt a strong impression to reread the books of Exodus and Joshua. I suspected that reading them would answer a question that has been gnawing at my spirit. That question had to do with the concept of ‘breakthrough.’ When I say breakthrough, please don’t think I mean a breakthrough in my personality, or a relationship, or even a financial challenge. None of those things come close to what I mean.

I knew that history was littered with tales of armies who had won a couple of battles and then lost the war. Thinking you are winning when you have only had victory in skirmishes is a sad proverb of war.

God told Israel to conquer the kings who currently inhabited the Promised Land. Land that had been promised to Israel. Long before Israel got there, these kings heard that the people of God were coming. They knew that the Children of Israel had once been slaves. The inhabitants of the land had heard of the miracles God had performed in Egypt−but remember−these kingdoms were under the control of the kings who were not about to give them up without a fierce fight.

The first victory the Children of Israel had in Canaan could be dismissed as beginner’s luck.  The second one could be considered a fluke. The third was to be so significant that Joshua and the commander’s of the armies of God got involved.

Joshua 5: 13 “And it came to pass, when Joshua was near Jericho, that he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, a Man stood opposite him with His sword drawn in His hand. And Joshua went to Him and said to Him, “Are You for us or for our adversaries?” 14 So He said, “No, but as Commander of the Army of the Lord I have now come.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, “What does my Lord say to His servant?” 15 Then the Commander of the Army of the Lord said to Joshua, “Take your sandal off your foot, for the place where you stand is holy.” And Joshua did so.”

What did Jericho represent? A victory that would melt the fighting will of the pagan kings. It meant a launching. The walls fell and with them all doubt that God would take the land.

I knew in advance that we would see victories in our first two Living Proof Tent Crusades. But I also knew they could be explained away. Last year, I knew Stockton was our Jericho. Believe me, there are walls around this city. Trust me, there is demonic power nested here that boggles the mind.

We have openly declared victory over this city. Doing that was an act of courage for all of us. We sent workers into the neighborhoods of Stockton. That is our equivalent of marching around Jericho. Our battle plan for Stockton was not based on human effort. It flies in the face of everything that the world calls ‘marketing.’ It made no sense to march around Jericho. That is no way to fight a battle! But we can sense that the hand of God is here, and He will fight the battle!

There was a day when Joshua and the armies of God stopped marching—took their positions—and then shouted and blew on their horns. Today is our day to do the same.

We have poured tens of thousands of dollars into this. We have shut down virtually every aspect of our ministry for this. Our staff has relocated to Stockton.  We are literally hanging our lives on the promise of God regarding these next 5 days.

We are putting it all on the line today, and all I am asking of you is one thing: PRAY!  Pray fervently. Pray specifically. Pray as you have never prayed for us before. This is our Jericho! Pray for the walls to come down!

 

 

P.S. Oh, I know I said ‘one thing’ but I am actually asking for two more. If you live within 50 miles of this tent, please come to see the power of Jesus Christ perform miracles−and bring with you anyone you know who needs a miracle!
