A PROPHETIC UPDATE FROM CALIFORNIA

 

Why do I call this a prophetic update? Because we have just had a major collision with a forgotten prophecy from 8 years ago. More on that in a moment.

First, let me tell you about California. We knew, going in, that California was under a vast demonic spell. Demon power here takes on many disguises. Those who would win souls here must face a new level of deception. Not just the typical grungy occult—but a new and sophisticated devil worship.

Satan’s fans aren’t just in the back alleys or garbed in sinister costumes, practicing the dark arts. They are now the average kid, from a good home—a well-to-do home—and they are dabbling, but not totally committed to the dark forces. For many, it is just playacting, a novel way to rebel against their parents, and to hate God.

Why do they hate God?

They are mixing political wokeness with the occult. They side with the devil because they see him as part of the resistance. To many, Satan is a revolutionary figure.

More and more of them here see a connection between their goals of social justice and hating God. God-hating has taken on a new persona. God is merely lumped in with all of their confused agendas.

The sign she is holding says, “Keep God out of California.” However, it appears that their sign is not working, because God is very much present in California. As a matter of fact, the State that gave us Azusa Street and the Jesus Movement seems to be shaking. Not from an earthquake, but from a truth-quake.

The team in Fresno, CA, led by Frank Saldana, sent me their report that says they “have never seen openness to the Gospel like this. The people on the streets gladly take our cards, and eagerly let us pray for them.” The tent will not go up for 18 days yet, but souls are already being saved in Fresno and bodies are being healed.

How can this be, given the increase in demonic activity? Because Satan has yet again overplayed his hand. The lockdown. The extreme violence, perversion, and the silliness of wannabe Satanists has produced a result that is the opposite of what Satan wanted. People want God. People want prayer.

But why am I calling this a prophetic update? Because in November of 2012, I wrote a newsletter that bewildered our partners. Out of the blue, I introduced a subject that had nothing to do with our activities at the time.

In that newsletter from 8 years ago, the banner read, “Does the road to American Awakening go through Fresno?” To this day, I do not know why I took such a wild departure from what we were doing, to write that article. What is really strange, is that although we have archives with newsletters that go back many years…that one is strangely missing. We can’t find a copy anywhere! Only the cover survived.

Did I come across it by accident, after 8 years? Right after we made the announcement that we would reopen our tent crusades in Fresno? I don’t know about you, but our team is pretty stoked by this.

It explains the favor we are seeing in Fresno. Not just on the streets, but also from pastors, leaders and city officials. It explains why people are already being saved and healed on the streets.

It also explains why people are making a pilgrimage from vast distances to attend this particular crusade. They are flying in from Hawaii, New York, Alabama, Kentucky, and even Canada!

I am holding in my hand, right now, a letter from a precious sister who lives in Minnesota. She says she is living with unbearable pain. She says that doctors have tried everything, but to no avail. So, she is coming. She is braving the torture of a long flight. She is coming, expecting her healing!

Does the road to American Awakening go through Fresno? The assurance that it does, is getting stronger every hour!

IT IS THE MOMENT I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR.

I do not fear man. God has taught me to obey His voice and no other. There have been countless times I wanted to react against injustice and evil when the Holy Spirit restrained me. I fear no government agency. That is the work of Christ in my life and not personal bravery.

We did not shut down our tent crusades because we feared man or virus. That is a point that I must drive home to you. The rest of this will not have the impact I am praying for unless you clearly understand that.

Unlike a church that owns their own building, for a tent crusade you must get a permit. No permits were available after the shutdown. I was fully prepared to obtain private land and force the issue. But God said no.

Being sidelined while California was being destroyed by a virus and her government was torture. Again and again, I thought about how desperately needed our tent meetings were.

I thought of Jesus waiting to heal the sick until He was thirty years old. How much misery He saw. How many times He must have yearned to intervene.

When I saw the riots. When I saw the spike in murder, addiction and suicide. I can’t describe to you my yawning frustration.

As the months passed my inner pain grew worse. I pleaded with the Lord to release me. Surely the risk of jail would be better than sitting on the sidelines.

The Holy Spirit never fully explained why we had to shut down. Of course we wanted people to be safe but that was not the main reason. Someday I know God will tell me why I had to wait. As soon as He tells me, I promise, I will tell you.

Our internet ministry and social media exploded during the shutdown. It seemed I should be content to enjoy this new found success. But I am a soul-winning warrior. Always have been, and always will be! If all I ever do is make videos and post things on the internet it will surely kill me.

In the last few weeks the fire in my bones intensified until I despaired of holding it in! I could not just hear, I could feel the anguish of lost souls in California. I was on the brink of an eruption. Then at the precise moment…it happened today. God spoke.

“REOPEN THE TENT CRUSADES.” Instantly I felt peace and excitement. It is from that peace and excitement that I make the following announcement:

We will reopen the Living Proof Crusade along Highway 99 on Sunday October 11. The tent goes up on the beautiful Granite Park where we have several acres of parking and direct access to hurting neighborhoods. How did we get this site? Well, you just have to believe in miracles my friend.

 

Not only that, but the tent will be up for 6 days! The meetings will be at 6:30 PM every night from Sunday October 11th until Friday October 16th. But there is so much more to tell you!

An army of trained and anointed workers will descend on Fresno. They will carry the message of hope so gravely needed in this hour. The acute loneliness, despair, and addiction will be confronted and healed in Jesus’ name!

We have purchased new equipment that will more than satisfy any concerns about cleanliness. We have luxury bathroom trailers. We will take great pains to make sure the tent, chairs and grounds are spotless!

Most of all, we expect the anointing to flow in a measure we have never known before. It will not surprise me if we see impossible healings that will rock the medical community.

I am preparing 6 original soul winning/healing messages—messages born out of my time of being sequestered!

Our expectancy for this tent crusade like crackling electricity! We have never felt expectancy like we do right now.

These verses perfectly describe what it will be like, what will happen under our tent:

Isaiah 61: 1 “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn…”

Out of all of those words, one jumps out at me: vengeance! It is time to make the devil pay for what he has done to California and our nation! It is time for vengeance on all the lies, political tyranny and suffering in America.

Forgive me…but is it wrong to hope that on October 11 a fire from heaven will fall—a fire that will not be quenched until it engulfs the whole nation with revival!

It is not a coincidence that this tent crusade will occur right before the most urgent election of our life. For that reason I am calling on all who read this to begin to pray fervently for this crusade.

Under normal circumstances—which is something we have not been under for a long time—we would not press you to travel to Fresno to be a part of a historic relaunch of our Living Proof Tent crusades. This is a once in lifetime opportunity for you to be a part of an epic outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

Remember: Sunday October 11- Friday October 16th at 6:30 PM Granite Park 3978 N Cedar Ave, Fresno, CA 93726.

The shutdown is over! The vision resumes with more power and momentum than ever! Satan will pay dearly for what he has done to California and America.

To all of the partners of Mario Murillo Ministries let me make this official. Your prayers and support kept us strong and ready. You faith in the calling of this ministry is being rewarded with a magnificent comeback. So we will be rejoicing over a great harvest of souls. The addict, the suicidal teenager, the gang banger, and the victimized citizens of California are going to be visited by Jesus in glory and fire.  Hallelujah!

I AM STANDING AGAINST THE DEMONIC POWER OVER CALIFORNIA

Under our Tent in Fresno, bodies will be healed of sickness. The power of depression will be broken. We know this because it has happened, again and again. A miracle can happen to you or to someone you love.

Acts 14:3 says, “Nevertheless, they stayed there a long time, preaching boldly, and the Lord proved their message was from Him by giving them power to do great miracles.”

That verse says it all. We welcome anyone to come and to see the proof that the message of Jesus is for every soul—no matter how sick, addicted or hopeless they may feel.

Here is our message to California: In our Tent, Jesus will break the chains of sickness, addiction, and despair. In our Tent, the rules of the street die. In our Tent, you will find the Life you were born to live.

An army of prayer warriors is already locked in targeted intercession to break the power of Satan in California. Christians are in training to put boots on the ground. These prayer-covered workers will soon touch California’s most forsaken: from homeless camps to crack-houses. Everyone, from the down-and-out to the up-and-in will receive our witness.  Our workers will not bring just food and clothing—they will bring the anointing to heal and to set captives free.

While I was in the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, NC, the exhibit of Billy preaching in the Eastern Bloc countries brought me to tears. Not long after Billy preached there, Communism fell in these nations. Not only that, but it fell in the exact same order of Billy’s visits. I thought, “What an amazing miracle!”

Then I thought, “Why not such a miracle for California?” Los Angeles has a great store of the buried treasure of past revivals. From L.A. the greatest outpouring since the Book of Acts emerged, the miracle on Azusa Street. The greatest evangelists of the 20th Century have held meetings there: from Aimee McPherson to Billy Graham. There, the greatest youth revival in American history was born—the Jesus People Movement.

Highway 99 is our assignment, for a reason. Millions who live along this corridor are suffering, and their quality of life has dropped drastically because of the lockdown. But the big difference is that Central Valley families think differently, and something is stirring there!

I hear the rumble in this valley of millions who are sick to death of the whole mess. They don’t want what their kids are being taught in the schools. They don’t want drag queens reading to their children. They do not want Black Lives Matter or Antifa burning down their city. They don’t want any part of the medicated, mentally dulled elites who compose the government of California. They don’t want this disaster to continue. They yearn for hope!

You are the heart of the mass crusade we are holding in Fresno. Your prayers, support and love have taken on muscle. You will be able to feel the impact of your faith. The diseases that are oppressing many are going to be healed, because of your faith.

Can you feel the urgency of this tent crusade in Fresno?  Let God fill you with expectation and a spirit of prayer!

Let God speak to your heart! There is a place in these meetings for you. There is a miracle waiting there for you. You will see God use you in a way you have never imagined. No matter what the level of power of your gift is currently, let me tell you, it will go to a new level.  Do you fear witnessing? I assure you that an inner fire will make you as bold as a lion. Not only that, you will return rejoicing over the lives God has used you to bring to salvation. Come along, stand beside me, and become the Christian warrior you never imagined you could be.

I can’t overstate the urgency of prayer. Please, won’t you begin praying for us right now? In the coming days you will be able to volunteer to help in this historic tent crusade.

In our Tent: the story of the miracle God will bring to California

Over one million Californians are about to get this message: In our Tent, the chains of sickness, addiction, and despair are broken. In our Tent, the rules of the street die. In our Tent, you will find the life you were born to live.

Five cities: Chico, Roseville, Modesto, Fresno, and Bakersfield will be the focus of God’s love and power in 2020. An army of prayer warriors is about to launch targeted intercession to break the power of Satan. Soldiers are in training to put boots on the ground. These prayer-covered workers will soon touch California’s most forsaken: from homeless camps, to crack houses—everyone, from the down-and-out to the up-and-in will receive our witness.  Our workers will not bring just food and clothing, but will bring the anointing, to heal and to set captives free.

Now, I must tell you about the battlefield.  What the Elitist Left Regime has done to the people of California will stand as a disgrace for the ages to come. California is the poster-child for why America must defeat Leftist ideology.

My hometown is a prime example. God made San Francisco beautiful, but the Left has made her ugly.

I have fond memories of San Francisco—the one I knew as a child.  Today, you can’t walk on the streets anywhere without the risk of stepping on human waste, a dirty needle, or being physically attacked.

As a child I would go to Market Street to watch the Easter Parade, and on New Year’s Eve, families enjoyed the fireworks. Today, Market Street is a living nightmare.

For a mile in front of what once were elegant stores, now lawn chairs sit, filled with people who look half dead. The smoke from legalized marijuana is mixed with city-provided needles for drug addicts who line the streets. Alcohol is rampant and is mingled with physical degradation, creating a cloud with the stench of death.  And you know what? The current District Attorney believes that San Francisco is still not liberal enough.

The streets of Los Angeles are an apocalypse of around 45,000 gang members. There are nearly 60,000 homeless people. For the first time in history they found leprosy on the streets of Los Angeles. They have spent a billion dollars on this crisis, but to no avail. It is believed that over 1,000 homeless people have died on the streets of Los Angeles.

And still, local Democrats want more illegals to come. They want to provide free services to them, but are utterly failing to take care of their own citizens.  L.A. and S.F. are ‘sanctuary cities’?  Sanctuaries from what?

This dystopian landscape of California is the legacy of the Democrat Party. Decades of abuse and depraved thinking have unleashed this misery. The party has incorporated atheism into their platform, and the result is a disaster for the cities they control.

While I was in the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, N.C. the exhibit of Billy preaching in the Eastern Bloc countries brought me to tears. Communism fell in these nations, not long after Billy preached there. Not only that, but it fell in the exact same order of Billy’s visits. I thought what a miracle

Then I thought why not such a miracle for California? Los Angeles has a great store of the buried treasure of past revivals. From here emerged the greatest outpouring since the Book of Acts: Azusa Street. The greatest evangelists of the 20th Century have held meetings here: from Aimee McPherson to Billy Graham. From here, the greatest youth revival in American history was born—the Jesus People Movement.

Tectonic plates push against each other with unimaginable force, causing earthquakes in California. In the same way, spiritual tectonic plates of good and evil are colliding, with even greater force. Something has got to give. The miracle lies in the great Central Valley.

Highway 99 is our assignment, for a reason. Millions who live along this corridor have been uniquely punished by the government. The quality of life has dropped drastically. But the big difference is that Central Valley families haven’t bought into the agenda of the radical Left Coast. Something is stirring here!

I hear the rumble in this valley of millions who are sick to death of the whole mess. They don’t want what their kids are being taught in these schools. They don’t want drag queens reading to their children. They don’t want any part of the medicated, mentally dulled elites who compose the government of California. They don’t want this disaster to continue. They yearn for hope.

It is like the earthquake of Holy Spirit power that struck Israel when John the Baptist and Jesus Christ arrived. Their message of the kingdom of God revolutionized Israel. When the leaders sought an answer for the sudden stampede toward righteousness, Jesus explained, “From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force” (Matthew 11:12).

You are the heart of this mass invasion along Highway 99 in California. Your prayers, support and love have taken on muscle. Demons are going to feel the impact of your faith. The diseases that are oppressing many are going to be healed because of your partnership. Every soul saved under this Tent is part of your harvest.

I have never been more proud of my fellow warriors in the Central Valley of California. I thank God for Frank Saldana and the core of our elite warriors at Inner City Action. I thank God for Pastor Jim and Kristine Carpenter from The Bridge in Marysville. I give God the glory for Pastor A. J. and Claudia Nunez from Covenant Worship Center in Fresno. I am honored to have the help of Bishop Steve and Kelly Perea from Christian Worship Center in Manteca.  There are so many more I could name, but please forgive me if I failed to mention anyone.

Look at the graphic that shows every tent crusade for Living Proof California. Let it fill you with expectation and a spirit of prayer! Can you feel the urgency of this tour?  Does your spirit witness to the rightness of what we are about to do?

I want you to notice the Night of Miracles that we have planned. These are nights we go into the cities where the Tent will soon come. On these nights people get a taste of the fire and supernatural power that will be in the Tent a few weeks later.

How can I help but put out a call for soldiers to rally to this divine cause? Let God speak to your heart! There is a place here for you. There is a miracle waiting here for you. You will see God use you in a way you have never imagined. No matter what the level of power of your gift, let me tell you, it will go to a new level.  Do you fear witnessing? I assure you that an inner fire will make you as bold as a lion. Not only that, you will return rejoicing over the lives God has used you to save. Come along beside me and become the Christian warrior you never imagined you could be.

I can’t overstate the urgency of prayer. Please, begin praying for us right now. Ancient devils control these communities and they will not easily let go. It will take fasting and prayer. It will take gut wrenching intercession. No one knows better than Satan what a Central Valley Awakening will do to the rest of America. But God is infinitely greater than Satan.

God will give us the breakthrough. He will give us the victory!

Join us for the very first event in Chico. Here’s a  one minute video invitation from Mario

 

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!

 

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!

 

 

 

A FAR REACHING ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT CALIFORNIA

Back on December 3rd 2019, I told you this: “An astounding door for moral awakening has blown open in California, but I need your help.” The help I was describing was that we needed an edge—an edge over the persecution and intimidation we had experienced.

Let me describe an example. It happened on the first night of one of our crusades. It was in the early afternoon, several hours before we were going to start. An city official came to do a routine walk through. He took a very long time before finally letting us know we could go ahead with the meeting.

This had dragged on so long that the crowd was already arriving and had been forced to stand outside the tent in the cold.  What really hurt, was the thought that there were lost souls—souls who had come after being invited by their friends. I wondered, “How will they handle this inconvenience?”

The delay was so prolonged that we were preparing to hold the meeting, even if the people had to stand outside the tent in the dark field nearby! This harassment was uncalled for. The official even made a veiled threat saying “I will remember anything you say.”

Then, at the last possible moment, we were given permission to go ahead. But they told us they would be back the following night, and we realized that the second night of meetings was still in jeopardy. Sure enough, the next night, we were again not given permission to start until right before meeting time.

Thank God for Frank Saldana! He had the patience and wisdom to deal with this, and to act instantly meeting every demand. I stayed in the prayer closet. By God’s mercy, it all worked out, and we enjoyed an effective and historic tent crusade.

But believe me, this was not the only city where we encountered resistance. It wasn’t until later that it became clear that there was a weakness in our plans which made us vulnerable to all this abuse.

So, I decided, “THIS IS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN AGAIN!”  I asked the Lord for a miracle—a miracle that would remove the weakness in our plans and nail the door shut on the enemy. But it was something so big that Jesus was the only One I could tell about it.

The miracle that I asked for would not only shut the door on the enemy, it would open the door to win many more souls. Now I can tell you what it is. Why? Because the miracle has happened!

I asked Jesus to give me enough money to be able to pay off all the rent, all the bills associated with permits, licenses, legal fees and reimbursable charges—all in advance. I am talking tens of thousands of dollars above and beyond our budget.

To top it all off, I told the Lord that I would not tell you about it. That’s like Elijah pouring water over the sacrifice before calling down fire. I needed to know with absolute certainty that it was the perfect will of God for us to return to California for more meetings. Here’s what has happened…

EVERY BIT OF THE MONEY WE NEEDED HAS COME IN!  And, it came in without telling anyone but God. Now we have locked in all five cities and will be able to meet any challenge well in advance.

So again, it is with incredible joy that I announce to you the venues and dates for Living Proof California!

 But this miracle does something even more important. Remember that I said, “An astounding door for moral awakening has blown open in California”?  Part of that is: Without these distractions we can send the army of Light into the habitations of devils. We can pull treasures out of darkness. We can march through this door that has blown open among the lost. We can turn our focus and energy into the most widespread miracle-evangelism California has seen in decades. That is why I said this is a far-reaching announcement.

But it gets even bigger than this. Remember, in a previous letter I said that while we were doing a tent crusade we couldn’t announce the next one? That was because at the time we didn’t know if there would be a next one. This resulted such a delay that, when we did finally know, we were always rushing to invite the lost to the tent. Now we can recruit workers because they have advanced notice to arrange time away from jobs and nail down housing. Plus we get to spend valuable time in the surrounding neighborhoods. You can see why this extra time is priceless.

But there is still more! We have added a new weapon for these tent crusades. They are called Nights of Miracles. The Holy Spirit ordered me to plan nights in a local church at least 30 days before the tent goes up. The goal is to give the city a sample of the power and glory they can expect in the tent. This has already worked amazingly well in both Fresno and Hanford. Now we will do Nights of Miracles in all five cities!

Our first Night of Miracles will take place in Chico, California on Sunday night, January 26th at 6 p.m. followed by Monday night, January 27th at 7 p.m. These meetings will be held at Jubilee on the Ridge Church at 2201 Pillsbury Rd., Chico, CA 95926. This is the first event of Living Proof California 2020.

Did you know that over 1.1 million people now know about the tent on the Highway 99 corridor of Glory? But we don’t just need people knowing about it, we need soldiers. There are so many opportunities for you to serve. And don’t think you live too far away! Folks from as far away as Canada are coming here to help us.

Above everything, pray for us! Whether you just pray or if you want to come and help reach the lost in California, sign up using the link below. I have been excited about many things in my life, but this California outreach next year carries a special excitement!

Please, use the link below, and get involved in Living Proof California. God bless you!

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!

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!
