ONLY THIS TIME

An astounding door for moral awakening has blown open in California, but I need your help. Did you know that over a million people now know what God is doing under the roof of our tent?

Thousands are asking what we are going to do next. The answer is, we are coming back. Only this time, we are returning with a vengeance! Here is how we got to this point:

In 2019, we began in raw obedience. When Frank Saldana, Jim Carpenter, and I began this mission we had to trust God for everything. Satan opposed us in ways I have never seen before. We were in direct contact with hell.  Again and again our tent tour seemed doomed. And, again and again, God came through!  And, in such a manner that no one but God received the glory.

We went to Paradise, California when there was virtually nothing left there after the fire. We set up our tent in a city where everyone had fled for their lives. No one can explain, even to this day, how God filled the tent with so many people and how so many were miraculously transformed. Marysville was total warfare.  But it not only turned around, it was so fruitful we had to add extra nights at a baseball stadium. In Stockton, the opposition was even more intense. Yet again, the power of God prevailed.

However, it was not until we got to Dinuba that we saw the true potential for the tent. Then our final crusade in Hanford brought record-breaking crowds, miracles, and salvations.

Do you want to know why Satan fought us so hard?  It is because we discovered there is a vast harvest in California. That is something the enemy, the leftist media, and the God-haters never wanted us to know. Satan overplayed his hand. The people are sick to death of the agenda of the Left that is destroying the economy, brainwashing their children, unleashing crime and addiction, and persecuting Christians.

Every night, we suffered a critical shortage of counselors to pray with young and old who wanted Jesus. The number of healings also overwhelmed us.  Matthew 9:37, Then (Jesus) said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

Along with the vast harvest, we saw another result: churches came alive to win souls!

Yes, it’s true, in 2019 we powered through incredible obstacles. We reached thousands. Now we are in a position to reach tens of thousands. And get this: we have already locked-in 5 California cities for mass healing crusades.  They are: Chico, Roseville, Modesto, Fresno, and Bakersfield.

Having sites locked-in this early, gives us a much greater edge than we had last year.  Much of 2019 was consumed battling for permits and last minute expenses.

Only this time, we are coming with a much bigger army.  This time, a battle-tested core will return to lead new recruits. This wonderful battalion of Spirit-filled warriors is waiting for us to replenish them for invasion.

On top of that, we will multiply our outreach to the poor and homeless by holding special daytime rallies in the tent. The homeless won’t come at night, for fear of losing their place and their belongings. We will bring them to the tent for morning outreaches, where they will experience the power and love of God, as well as receiving resources.

And that’s not all. We are purchasing a second tent, just for children. While their parents are getting saved in the main tent, the children will receive special ministry in their own tent.

We missed having many people come to the tent in 2019, because they don’t go to church or watch Christian media.  But this time, we will invest in new social media weapons designed to get their attention. This includes redesigning our website to better serve visitors. We are investing in new equipment that will let us instantly show short live-streams from the tent, plus interviews with those who have been saved and healed.

I am convinced that a harvest, beyond anything we have seen, is waiting. This open door demands a massive investment. We simply don’t know how long this door will stay open—but there is one thing we do know for sure:

Unless a powerful miracle occurs, within one short year the America you have always known and loved will be gone forever. Who is leading the charge on impeachment and every other destructive movement in America?  California.  California’s God-hating elites have the power and the money to wipe out all of our freedoms.

Here are some final facts about California:

  • Right now, those who are the best equipped to win the hearts of young Californians are wealthy leftist politicians, atheists, media moguls, singers, and actors.  They have the biggest stage, the loudest microphones, and the largest bankroll.
  • They all have this in common: They despise Jesus Christ, the Bible, America, Donald Trump, Israel, and you.
  • Those on the Left are pawns of Satan. They want a world without the traditional family or any restraints on abortion, drugs, pornography, or pedophiles. Here’s the unvarnished truth: the current leftist regime now in power in California sees no future for Christianity in that state. They have made it their mission to drive true believers out of what they consider to be “their” state.
  • Their ideology thrives on policies that divide and destroy.  They see chaos as a good thing, because it destroys the old order to make way for the new order.  Prolonged economic depression, brainwashing, riots, and even cop killings are permissible for the “greater good.” That explains the deliberate destruction of California’s prosperity and civil order.

We saw many miracles in 2019, but the dire facts about California and America’s future demand a bold and drastic outreach. That is why I am asking you to sow into a miracle for America by helping us invade California.

No one needs to remind you how angry, perverted and chaotic our nation has become. Whatever we are going to do, we must do it now.

We have the tent, the chairs, the army, and the permits.  Your gift will mean more now than ever: because it will have an immediate impact and will multiply the size of the harvest.  Your love gift will go directly to soul winning.

I have asked you for help before, only this time, I am even more certain that our nation’s future is at stake. Perhaps you meant to give more this year but were not able to. The government allows us to credit any gift you give toward your 2019 taxes, so long as it is postmarked on or before December 31st.

I know you love souls. I know you see what it means to reach California. I also know you have been generous before. However, times have changed and we are facing a threat we never thought we would face. You are the best partners a ministry ever had, and you have always come through.  But it is because we must treat this open door as our last chance, I need you to dig a little deeper.

Thank you for giving toward this California miracle. To give use this link  https://mariomurillo.org/donate/

Thank you, and God bless you, and God bless America!

2020

We kept our promise. We were obedient to the Godly Dream

I spoke one Sunday morning in Stockton, and that afternoon I took a nap before the evening rally. God gave me a dream. He told me that California Highway 99, from Red Bluff to Arvin, would be a raging river of healing and salvation. When I woke up I had no idea I was to have any involvement in fulfilling this prophetic dream. I assumed it was for the audience in Stockton, where I was going to preach that night.

Five years later, Rick Wiles gave us a beautiful new 8,000 square foot tent and 1,000 chairs. We suddenly knew that the dream I had in Stockton was a mandate for us. God had called us to take His miracle power down the full length of Highway 99.

At the same time we were given that tent, without our knowing about it, Frank Saldana and Inner City Action felt led to study how tents are erected, and were learning how to use them in ministry.  God was putting a team together.

At the same time, God was forming a close friendship between our ministry and that of Jim and Kristine Carpenter from The Bridge in Marysville. We knew Marysville would be our first stop on the Highway 99 corridor of Glory.

God made it very clear: no matter how little support you have—no matter how much resistance you face—no matter how impossible it looks, keep moving forward to set up the tent where the Spirit directs you, and don’t stop.

There was a reason God exhorted us in this way. Our journey always looked impossible. There was an amazing amount of resistance. We had to rely on support that came from shockingly unexpected sources. We had to repeatedly pick ourselves up, after many setbacks.

We learned the hard way that a great portion of the Body of Christ is not interested in winning souls—especially not in dangerous locations.

Marysville proved that our calling was truly supernatural. We had to fit our tent onto a parking lot that barely fit our tent. The weather turned cold and wet, and still, crowds came from everywhere. We saw the dream become reality when the river of healing and salvation broke out in Marysville. Thank God we were able to move the tent to a professional baseball stadium.  We closed out that first crusade in constant rain, and then the temperature dropped down to 40 degrees. But, in spite of this, it was packed!

We had no idea where the tent was supposed to go next. All of this was so sudden that we never had the luxury of advanced planning.

Then the Lord told us our next stop was to be Paradise, California. I protested, ‘Paradise is burned to the ground. There is no electricity or water there. Most of all, there are no people there.’  So I placed it back in God’s hands and said that, if we get a call to come to Paradise in the next week, we will go.

Seven days later we received that phone call, and during our time in Paradise we witnessed the power of God to save, to heal, and to bind up the many broken-hearted who had lost loved ones in the fire.

Our next tent crusade was in Stockton and was our most dangerous yet. We were shouted down. The fire department would not let us put on the sides to our tent, leaving us wide open to a park filled with addicts, the homeless, and gangsters. We were literally sitting ducks.  Yet again, we saw God overrule the powers of darkness as the openness worked to our advantage, and He gave us souls and miracles.

When we arrived in Dinuba, we proved the power of God in a way we had not seen in any other crusade. The entire town was aware of the tent sitting on the bare ground where the new Dinuba High School would soon be built. And, it was in Dinuba that we first encountered crowds that overflowed the tent.

The report of healing miracles spread across town, and the stories about how wounded souls were being transformed got out into the community, and it soon became clear that the entire city knew God was at work.

And finally, toward the end of November, the last tent crusade of 2019 took place in Hanford. It was the most powerful on every level. The unity among the pastors there was the best we had seen. The excitement level was greater than anywhere else. The altars were crowded every night with souls seeking Jesus. God did wonderful and undeniable healing miracles.

Thousands upon thousands were reached by Christ in this tour on Highway 99. Local churches have been fired up and equipped to expand and continue the revival.

Paul wrote in Acts 26:19 that he “was not disobedient to the heavenly vision.” And:

WE WERE NOT DISOBEDIENT TO AN IMPOSSIBLE CALLING!

To all who gave so sacrificially to make this tour possible—to all who prayed, worked and battled alongside us—to all who stood with us in the face of unimaginable resistance, both from inside and outside the church—to all of you I give my deepest thanks, and I am praying that God will richly bless all of you!

Now we come to the most astonishing news. Our momentum is carrying us forward into 2020. We are able to announce that we are going to continue down Highway 99 once again in the coming New Year. The Lord has directed us to reach 5 cities in 2020, and these dates are locked in:

March 15th-18th  ̶  The Silver Dollar Fairgrounds, Chico, CA

April 19th-22nd  ̶  Placer County Fairgrounds, Roseville, CA

May 17th-20th  ̶  Modesto, CA (the site is in negotiations and will be confirmed soon).

June 21st-24th  ̶  Fresno Fairgrounds, in Fresno, CA

September 13th-16th  ̶  Bakersfield, CA (the site is in negotiations and will be confirmed soon).

Everything in me is telling me these meetings will be bigger, more powerful and more effective than any tent crusades we have held so far. God is taking us from reaching thousands to reaching tens of thousands. We very strongly desire your prayers. We need your church to back these outreaches. We are praying the Lord of the Harvest to send the needed workers.

And so, dear friends, by the grace and power of the Holy Spirit, and with your continued support, the river rages on!

Dinuba is a sign and a warning

It was exactly five years ago today that I stood before a group of leaders in California and made this prediction: “The church in California has five years. Churches here will either become soul winning centers, or they will end up asylums filled with disgruntled believers who will drain the life out of their leaders.”

I went on to tell them that Hollywood, the state government, tech companies and education would become militantly Left Wing and assault the freedom of religion. Five years is up, and that is exactly where we are.

Many say I should just be rejoicing over the dramatic healings that took place last night in Dinuba. I should be dancing in the spirit over all the souls that are being saved. Indeed, the tent is a sacred center for mighty acts of God. And yes, it is true that many amazing things are happening.

This visitation is so very full of hope, love and joy, that as I exited the tent they brought the mayor of Dinuba to me and he grabbed my hand and shook it, and said, “Thank you so much for coming to Dinuba.”

It is Tuesday afternoon October 8th and, while I am rejoicing, I am sober with a soberness that feels like an impending disaster.

We have had to add chairs every night. The worship has been pure and forceful. Souls have been sobbing at the altar as they received Jesus as Lord. Yet over all this glory hangs an ominous cloud of uncertainty.

It has reminded me of when Jesus rode toward Jerusalem. “As He approached the road leading down from the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of His disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen: “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” (Luke 19:37-38)

From every angle you would conclude that Jesus is finally being given the glory and adulation that is due Him. Was this finally His great breakthrough? He knew better. Even as Jesus saw the crowds adoring Him, He knew it was too late. The city had been warned, and a deadline had been crossed: God had passed sentence on Jerusalem.

Luke 19 goes on: 41: “Now when Jesus approached and saw the city, He wept over it, 42 saying, “If you had only known on this day, even you, the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 For the days will come upon you when your enemies will build a siege mound against you and surround you and close in on you from every side. 44 They will demolish you—you and your children within your walls—and they will not leave within you one stone on top of another, because you did not recognize the time of your visitation from God.”

 

Every night under our tent has seen ever increasing blessings and power. Whereas hundreds used to come, now thousands come. We began with a flow of miracles and souls—now it’s a flood. But will it be enough to avert the judgment of God on California? That question is burning a hole in my heart.

Just because our meetings are awesome doesn’t guarantee statewide revival, anymore than Jesus’ ride through the cheering crowds meant Jerusalem would be saved.

What was the crime that sent Jerusalem to its death? My friend, it’s the same crime that will surely bury our hopes and dreams for California. Jesus declared the reason in verse 44: “because you did not recognize the time of your visitation from God.”

The emotional mood swings are enough to cripple me. I go to the heights of faith when I see the people who are standing with us. Their fervor is astonishing. They run all over the city and bring in the lost and the sick.  Inner City Action led by Frank Saldana is an army that causes me to have total faith that revival is coming.

And then there is the attack of discouragement that tries to hit Mechelle and me.  It’s not the insanity of Sacramento that does it. It is not the foolishness of Hollywood actors who don’t know what they are talking about. It isn’t the media.  It’s not even the horrible headlines of homelessness, addiction and violence

My heartache comes from leaders—leaders who labor under the delusion that there is plenty of time.  And, who believe there is no need for repentance or urgency.  These leaders do not recognize the time of God’s visitation.

Forget about me. I am not the catalyst to revival. I am not the chief source of anything for California. But for heaven’s sake, you pastors need to at least preach revival—at least call your people to prayer—at least speak out! For one thing is certain, there is not an infinite amount of time left.

Recently, a large church chose not to support us. The leader claimed that he thought we were not financially accountable—which is an absurd claim when you consider that the Charitable Navigators once gave us a 4 star rating—the same as Billy Graham!  It turns out that it was about money—but not our money—his money! He was “reaching out” to the LGBTQ community. That part is great, but here’s the sad truth: That community tithes to his church and he feared that my stance on marriage would cut off their giving.

Whether I am told to avoid preaching holiness or “politics” (another absurdity), it is grievous because they are not aware of the time of God’s visitation. Again, it is not about me. Go ahead and reject me, but when I see you doing nothing to embrace the moving of the Holy Spirit in any form, it grieves my spirit.

No matter what, I will press on. I will stand in the tent in our little corner of our calling and declare it:

THIS IS THE HOUR OF GOD’S VISITATION ON CALIFORNIA.

JOIN US AT CHUKCHANSI STADIUM IN FRESNO OCTOBER 20TH 6PM

 

 

Greatest Question

As you read this our tent is going up. Thousands know we are coming. A rare kind of unity exists between leaders here, and an amazing anticipation is in the air. We have more volunteers and prayer warriors for this event than any previous tent crusade. There is a buzz on the streets.

Many who are involved in this outreach are starting to talk about an awakening. They seem to sense that we could see a revival—and they don’t mean just ‘a good meeting’—they mean a moral outbreak that could sweep an entire region into the kingdom of Christ. I am talking about Dinuba, California.

So tonight I am pondering a great question: What starts a revival?

Here we are, two thousand years after the church began, and Christian theologians still don’t know what starts a revival.   Authors by the dozens release new books to tell us what the “steps for revival” are.  No sooner are they out, than the Spirit falls in a manner that totally contradicts their books.   As soon as we add a “step” to revival, God steps over our step…

Often past revivals are no help because history shows that the old revival usually opposes the new revival.  It seems dangerous to be tagged an expert on revival.  As the old rock song says, “If I claim to be a wise man then it surely means that I don’t know.”

Revivals have started in more ways than you or I can imagine.  Some began among children.  Some started in prisons. Some were touched off by the very people the church despised the most.  Has God kept us clueless about revival because He knows that anything that we can analyze we will try to control? It is certainly in us to do that, and there is no getting around it.

So why isn’t the devil happy?  We are divided, disorganized and ignorant of his devices.  There is no major threat of revival in America, am I right?  But the evil one does not relax.  Does he know something we don’t know?   Like maybe revival has never been actually caused by the church?  Does he remember how many times revivals have hit him by surprise?  Does Satan respect one aspect of revival more than we do—that revival can strike at any moment, in any place, through any believer?

Okay, let’s face it, it is truly beyond us to know how to start a revival, and Satan doesn’t know how to stop one.  That, dear pilgrim, is called an impasse.  Only God can break the tie.  So what can we do?  Brace yourself:  WE NEED TO LOOK AT GOD!

Satan is watching God more than he is watching us because we, my friend, are not the threat.  Here is a love/hate triangle:  God is looking at us, we are looking at the devil, and the devil is looking at God.

WE NEED TO LOOK AT GOD.  Get this, and you have taken a giant step forward.  We need to be watching God.  But that is so simple and obvious.  So, if it is that simple and obvious, then why aren’t we doing it?  Why in fact are we doing everything else but that?  Again, is it because Satan knows how to busy us with stuff that seems holy, but is irrelevant to revival?

Even our prayers are often not directed at God.  They are merely a set of statements we have been told to make, and statements we have been told will supposedly cause God to work.  Face it! God refuses to operate within our formulas.  He operates from a secret:  “The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant.” (Psalm 25:14)

God is looking for a relationship with those who want revival.  Exodus 31:18 is a strange verse.  It says, “And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon Mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.”  Israel has been waiting for centuries to gain legitimacy, because with the Law comes an identity and a legacy.  So why does God instead delay it for weeks so He can commune with Moses?  Here’s the rub: You want revival, but God wants you.  

Is it possible that in all of our arduous efforts we have overlooked the most amazing simplicity in the entire universe:  “If you abide in Me and My Words abide in you, you shall ask what you will and it shall be done.” (John 15:7)  Can it be that simple?

Revival is the natural result of getting so close to God that His secret takes hold and that ignites a chain reaction with others who suddenly cannot live without intimacy with God, and so and so on.

When can we know that revival has started?  In my studies, I have noticed a common denominator among the great revivalists who have led the great revivals.  They had an unshakable conviction that a revival had already started.  No matter what anyone said or did, they would not back down from the confession “revival is here!”   Much of their preaching was devoted to this conviction.

Jesus said, “Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!”  (John 4:35)

Revival-starters kept an infectious declaration going, no matter what.  Though the people around them felt that revival was months or years away, the revivalist says, “NO! IT IS ALREADY HERE!”

 

Again I ask, when can we know that a revival has started?  I got my answer one day at the beach when the tide was out.  Gentle white foam tickled my toes.  And the still small voice of the Lord spoke to me, “No matter how small that wave is, it is an ocean wave.  It is a relative of the tsunami.” 

Yes, a tidal wave can travel at 500 miles per hour, yet it is still nothing but an ocean wave, just larger.

“A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.” (Matthew 12:20).   This verse is saturated with much meaning, but I will limit myself to the part about the smoking flax.  Jesus is not going to put out any fire, no matter how insignificant it looks, until justice is victorious.

The first time you cried out for America to be saved, God took you at your word and started a revival fire in you. The first syllable that was spoken in prayer for revival at any gathering where women prayed, began the revival.  The first time a pastor told his people how much we need revival, the spark was ignited.

The job now is to cooperate with God for bigger and bigger and bigger waves.  The tide rises as the revival core pays the price of obedience.   If they keep to the intention of the revival, it will intensify.  If they refuse the hand of man, and the ways of Baal, the waves will continue to come, in faithful and ever increasing power.

How else can I say it?  You are a revival-starter, simply by wanting more of Jesus!

Now a special video message from Mario Murillo about what starts this Sunday

Come with me to see a miracle in California.

Come with me and see a miracle happen to California. You may be one of those chosen by God to work alongside us in the Central Valley. You may just be a believer who understands what is at stake in California. Read the story that is not just unfolding in the Golden State but is specific to 4 major events coming soon!

Not long ago, five cities in the Central Valley made the list of the Top Ten Worst Cities in America.

Why I believe a miracle is coming:

The good people of this region have been hit by everything you can imagine, including drought, foreclosures, drug addiction, gang violence, massive homelessness, and breathtaking political abuse by Sacramento.

When California received $410 million in 2012 as part of a nationwide settlement with major banks accused of abusive foreclosures, Gov. Jerry Brown used $331 million of that money to pay state agencies in housing and other programs in order to cover their deficits.  Kamala Harris knew about this but kept silent. Now California has lost a lawsuit, and this money must be paid out to the victims.

The Central Valley was not even on my radar. Five years ago my bags were packed to move out of California. I was moving away and thinking, “Maybe it is time to pass the mantle on to someone else, and retire.” Then my nation went crazy.

That is when the dream was given to me—a life changing dream.

The dream happened during an afternoon nap between services in Stockton. I believe that this dream was meant to encourage the people of that city. Especially because of what was in the dream.

It was the kind of dream that I tell people they need to handle with caution. In the dream I was suspended high above California, and I could clearly see Highway 99, all the way from Red Bluff to the end of 99 at Laval Road in Arvin, California.

Suddenly, as I watched, Highway 99 was transformed and became a river! Trees started popping up on the banks of the river. The voice of the Lord said, “This highway shall be a corridor of my Glory.”

Five years pass, and I am invited on the TruNews Network with Rick Wiles. Next thing I know, he has donated an 8,000 square foot, brand spanking new tent, as well as 1,000 chairs from the luxury boxes of an NFL stadium. What a miracle!

God then revealed to me that this tent was to move south and follow Highway 99, and that the river I had seen would flow in the tent, healing innumerable sicknesses and would bring in a massive harvest of souls.

Now, here we are—watching the fulfillment of that dream. Indeed, the river has flowed south from Marysville, CA, then through Paradise, CA and the current intensified in Stockton. Now we are watching the unimaginable as the river is about to reach to Dinuba, Hanford and Fresno.

As I write this to you, thousands of people are experiencing an amazing dealing of God in these cities. There is something in the air—it is vibrating with hope and faith.

People like to use the expression: ‘something has shifted,’ but that feels woefully inadequate to explain the unity that is emerging among leaders—the expectancy in the people—and the acceleration that seems to be coming.

With all my heart, I know we are about to hit the mean streets in these cities and pull treasures out of darkness. We are about to feed the masses of poor and unsheltered.

Nothing will be able to stop the explosion of praise that will erupt when the miracles, that I know are coming, arrive.

Why am I telling you this? In order to fulfill this dream, we need workers. Why not join in something so wonderful that if Jesus tarries, people will be talking about it 30 years from now?

Many people have asked me, “What kind of workers do you need?” My question back to you is, “What do you want to do? Do you want to hit the streets and watch gangsters delivered? Do you want to help organize a statewide night of prayer in Chukchansi stadium? Do you want to be an usher in any of the services? Do you want to pray with those who come to Jesus?

“Do you want distribute food and clothing in homeless camps? What about helping with our massive children’s outreach in Fresno in November? Are you willing to give up your Thanksgiving Day?”  On that day, we will conduct a complete miracle service, followed by a sit-down dinner for a thousand people.

If you come to the Night of Miracles in Hanford, you will see the true fire and miracles of Jesus. If you come to six nights under the tent in Dinuba, you will see God rock an entire city. If you join the thousands at Chukchansi Stadium, you will feel the power of prayer like you have never felt it in your life.

Start by praying. Even if you are reading this from Wellington, New Zealand, the Gold Coast of Australia, or even Cape Town, South Africa, you can pray! Start now.

I promise you, a river of life will end up flowing out to you!
