CALIFORNIA: WE DID NOT DISOBEY THE HEAVENLY VISION

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:

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!  Join us for our first event in Chico.

Special nights of miracles in Chico to kick off the California tent tour!

 

Thank you for making this blog a force in America. Now on to California

Thank you for making this blog a major force in America! Only God knows the true number of people we have reached through this effort.

Now let me turn your attention–on this last day of 2019–to our God-given plan for California in 2020. 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.

Below is our confirmed dates for 2020.

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.

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 saw many miracles in 2019, but the dire facts about California and America’s future demand a bold and drastic outreach. Thanks for your prayers.

This section directed to our ministry partners.

This is the last day of 2019. Some wanted to help us in 2019 and didn’t get around to it, by using our donation page today you can still get credit on your I am directing the final part of this blog to those who want to help us win souls. I want to make sure you feel absolutely no pressure to give.

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!

Join me in Chico CA for our first outreach in the New Year

California’s 2020 Wake up call

President Trump was right to give Gavin Newsom an ultimatum.  The people of California are suffering from a plague of addictions, homelessness, and lawlessness that has reached critical mass.  However, God is also issuing a wake- up call to the Golden State. He is shaking, purifying and rebuilding. God-haters beware! You who have your hearts set on a fully secular, socialist state that has no place for the church of the Lord Jesus Christ, know this: God is even now rolling up His sleeves to do a work—a work of extremes.

This impending act of God will consist of two things: joy and terror. Watch as those who shake their fists at God find themselves fighting against God—and losing that fight!  I say to you: God will take away your sleep. He will remove your arrogance. He will defeat your most trusted weapons. He will take down your secret tactics. He will turn the tide of public opinion against you.

These are the days of Elijah! This is California’s reckoning with truth and righteousness. God has surveyed the cities. He has heard and heeded the cries of His intercessors, and God has had enough of what they are doing to our children.

The roar of the words of the Psalmist is heard on high: “It is time for You to act, O God, for they have regarded Your word as void.” (Psalm 119:126)

It is only one tent, but what has happened under this tent in 2019 matters very much. Yes, the sick have been healed. Yes, the lost have charged into the Kingdom. But, in addition, a mighty army has formed. I have looked into their eyes and I have seen the fire of God blazing in them.

They are a new breed of believer—the kind that multiplies faster than anyone can know, and who will reach out with power like no Christians before them. They are ready. They are coming.  And, they will multiply in numbers unseen since the days of Azusa Street and the Jesus Movement.

God’s wake up call to the God-haters is simple: You have held sway over California for too long and your days are numbered, and your agenda is coming to an end!

But God’s wake-up call to the church in California is even greater.

God is saying to every pastor in the state: “Stand your ground. Stay on message. Hold on, for fire is about to fall on the smaller churches, the hungry churches.”

Though you be not many in size, His watchword to you is: “STAY!” Don’t give the cities away. Don’t sell out and move to a “safer” state.

You are not just to stay, but to make signs and wonders your weapon to stem the tide of evil. Let miracles flow. Preach a pure message—a message that God can crown with miracles.

Not only do we believe we should stand our ground, but as you can see from the map, we are investing more than ever in California. We are going to hold 5 tent crusades in 2020. We don’t want demons to feel at home here anymore. We are declaring that they are to pack up and move out! This is your eviction notice!

Acts 14:3 says, “Therefore they stayed there a long time, boldly in the Lord, Who was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.”

God is saying: Pray the Lord of the Harvest. 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.”

Each night, in every city we have visited, the crowd was amazed to see the river of souls flowing to Christ. It is no accident! We sent out workers. We went into the nests of evil to extract treasures out of the darkness. In 2020 we will double the number of workers—but the church still needs to be jolted awake.

The wake-up call that California’s Celebrity-Christians need is clear: God is not fascinated by your programs or your slick presentations. He is trying to save and deliver millions here who currently writhe in untold misery. Many believers who live here seem think this is someone else’s job. That is why we lost the state in the first place: because we thought someone else was going to do that job.

People mean well when they walk up to me and say, “Mario, you are doing a good work.” I reply, “No, I am not doing a good work…I am doing the work.” This work is OUR work. It is the real work of the church. Everything else is just distraction—something we made up and called it the work.

The Lord of the harvest is sending out laborers into His harvest.  It is time for every believer to arise, wake up, and find their place in this supernatural work in California. The evil that is being worshiped here cannot continue indefinitely. At some point it will implode.  Whatever we are going to do to touch California, we must do now. Pray, and obey the voice of God if He directs you to come and work beside us.  WELCOME TO THE WAR.

 

 

 

 

 

Please note: Our first event will be two days of miracles in Chico, CA, beginning on Sunday, January 26th and ending on Monday, January 27th. These meetings are designed to give the city of Chico a foretaste of what God will do in the Tent. They will be Nights of Miracles!  Please, invite someone who needs to find salvation in Christ or who needs a healing miracle!

 

 

 

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:

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.

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.

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!

God’s wake up call to California

Of course, people are going to hate this blog. Of course, even some believers will be offended and think we are setting ourselves up as some sort of ‘saviors’ of the state. But nothing could be further from the truth. We are not heroes. And neither are we delusional about our small role in what will be a gigantic miracle.

What I am saying is that God is sending the Golden State a wake-up call. He is shaking, purifying and rebuilding. God-haters beware. Look out you who have your hearts set on a fully secular, socialist state with no place for the Christian church.  God is rolling up His sleeves to do a work—a work of extremes.

This impending act of God will consist of both extreme joy and extreme terror. Watch for those who shake their fists at God. They will find themselves fighting against God—and losing that fight!  He will take away your sleep. He will remove your arrogance. He will defeat your most trusted weapons. He will take down your secret tactics. He will turn the tide of public opinion against you.

These are the days of Elijah! This is California’s reckoning with truth and righteousness. God has surveyed the cities. He has heard and heeded the cries of His intercessors.  He has had enough of what we are doing to the children.

The roar of the words of the Psalmist is heard on high: “It is time for You to act, O God, for they have regarded your word as void.” (Psalm 119: 126)

It is only one tent, but it matters very much what has happened under this tent in Dinuba California. Yes, the sick have been healed. Yes, the lost have charged into the Kingdom. But, above all that, an army has formed. I saw their eyes last night. I felt their fire last night.

They are a new breed of believer—the kind that multiplies faster than anyone can know, and who will reach out with power like no Christians before them. They are ready. They are coming.  And, they will multiply in numbers unseen since Azusa Street and the Jesus Movement.

God’s wake up call to the God-haters is simple: You have held sway over California for too long and your days are numbered, and your agenda is coming to an end.

But God’s wake-up call to the church in California is even greater.

  1. God is saying to every pastor here to stand your ground. Stay on message. Hold on, for fire is about to fall on the smaller churches, the hungry churches, regardless of size. The watchword is: “STAY!” Don’t give the cities away. Don’t sell out and move to a “safer” state.

Acts 14:3 says, “Therefore they stayed there a long time, boldly in the Lord, Who was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.”

You are not just to stay, but to make signs and wonders your weapon to stem the tide of evil. Let miracles flow. Preach a pure message—a message that God can crown with miracles.

  1. Pray the Lord of the Harvest. Matthew 9:37 Then (Jesus) said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

Each night the crowd is amazed to see the river of souls flowing to Christ. It’s no accident! We sent out workers. We went into the nests of evil to extract treasures out of the darkness.

The wake-up call California Christians need is this: God is not fascinated by your programs and slick presentations. He is trying to save and deliver millions here who currently writhe in untold misery. Believers here seem think this is someone else’s job. That is why we lost the state: because we thought someone else was doing that job.

People mean well when they walk up to me and say, “Mario, you are doing a good work.” I reply, “No, I am not doing a good work…I am doing the work.” This work is OUR work. It is the real work of the church. Everything else is just distraction—something we made up and called it the work.

  1. The state can be destroyed. That reality must set in. As glorious as these tent meetings are, I can’t dwell on them. As beautiful as the healings are, I can’t linger there. Compassion clings to me. Urgency overwhelms me.

‘Revival’ or ‘Rot’ is California’s next destination.

Right now, the Lord of the harvest is sending out laborers into His harvest.  It is time for every believer to find their place in the work, and join us.

The evil that is being worshipped here cannot continue indefinitely. At some point justice will be handed down by the God of Justice.

God has two words for everyone who reads this: WAKE UP!

JOIN US AT CHUKCHANSI STADIUM IN DOWNTOWN FRESNO TO CALL ON THE LORD FOR A CALIFORNIA MIRACLE! 

 

THE RIVER RAGES ON

It had been announced that the meeting would begin at 6 P.M. But it’s only 5:30 P.M. and the church is already full. People are parking several blocks away from the church now. You can see people racing toward the building, because they can hear that we have already started singing.

I can’t number the California myths that I am watching die right before my eyes. They say Sunday nights are a bad time for a meeting—especially in California. Most churches have given up trying to meet on Sunday night. They say that Christians here have been beaten down so badly that they are apathetic. They say that unless you have a gimmick attraction like a famous worship team, the people won’t come out. They say California Christians love to straggle in late. They say a lot of things.

But, this audience is ready! They are electric with expectancy. Their worship is unbridled. They are out-singing the worship team!

Now I am standing in the pulpit, surveying the crowd. The Spirit of God overpowers this unworthy servant and I am strictly ordered to ask a woman to stand up who is sitting three rows back and two seats in. God wants it made very clear that she is about to be healed. Every eye is on her. Here is the video of her healing.

Why I am able to know the multiple illnesses that ravage her body is still beyond me. It breaks me, and it is deeply humbling. It floods me with the fear of the Lord. Now I am commanded to declare her miracle. There is no doubt that pain and sickness have just vanished. All glory to Jesus!

When it is time, I bring the message of the night. I quote Mark 6:5 “Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them.” I ask the pastors surrounding me this question: “Can God do a mighty work here?”

Interestingly, the worst and the best miracle rallies Jesus ever had take place in that same chapter. His hometown saw few miracles, but when He went across the lake, miracles exploded:

54 And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him,

55 ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry those who were sick on beds to wherever they heard He was. 56 Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.” (Mark 6:54-56)

His hometown knew Him so well that they didn’t know Him at all. The people on the other side of the lake “recognized Him.” They had revelation about His power, His glory and what it means to have Him in the vicinity.

Christianity is the only movement in the history of the world where the Founder attends every meeting. We must recapture the wonder of “wherever two or three are gathered in My name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20)

Suddenly, I had to stop preaching. Miracles are coming to people across the meeting hall. The Holy Spirit told me to have a man place his hand over his chest. I tell him, “You have heart disease!” His wife instantly begins weeping for joy, as he is healed. Here is the video of his healing;

It is difficult and often not wise to pick the most dramatic miracle of the night. But when he was healed, the whole place went up in praise. Now I am standing beside a woman who cannot walk. Again, I am instructed to tell her she is being healed and that the reason she can’t walk is because she had fallen down the stairs. At first, she limps, barely able to hold her balance. Suddenly, she starts running! Praise explodes!

Now dozens are claiming and receiving their miracles!

The night ends as it should. I tell the audience to come to Jesus and be saved—but they must make Him Lord. They are only saved if they surrender and make Jesus Lord of their lives. Some say a hundred souls are saved. Others say more. Only God knows the true number.

We are so grateful to Hanford Pentecostal Church of God and Pastor Bobby Guerra for hosting this amazing night.

I see a hunger for Jesus that should terrify the devil and the God-haters of California.

Why should you rejoice? Rejoice, because this is a sign for all of America. The Corridor of Glory along Hwy. 99 has claimed another territory for revival. The Living Proof of a new day for the Church in California means a statewide outpouring of the Holy Spirit has begun! Next Sunday, we will be in Dinuba, CA. Please, join us! Hallelujah!
