THE CHURCH NO LONGER HAS EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW

We Christians no longer have equal protection under the law. We are officially second-class citizens in the United States. How else can you explain the total double-standard that exists: one standard for protesters and another for churches?

I thought we were in the midst of a pandemic so dangerous that everyone had to stay home? I thought that churches couldn’t meet because of the threat of spreading the virus? Weren’t police taking down license plate numbers of people at drive-in church services?

Why then, are tens of thousands of people standing shoulder to shoulder and protesting across America? Why is there no attempt whatsoever to stop them with the self-same zeal with which they have shut down the church?

Look at the picture of the protest in front of the California State Capital building. This is absolutely bizarre. Weeks ago, on that very spot, Christians staged a public rally. Suddenly, their permit to assemble was revoked. A pastor was arrested for giving a speech. They were told their rally was a great danger to the public.

Saturday, on that same exact site, there was a rally, but this time the “organizers didn’t have time to get a permit” we were told. Apparently they didn’t need one. Their crowd was several times larger than the church crowd, much louder, and more likely to get out of control. Not everyone was wearing a mask, and many other “guidelines” were blatantly ignored.

The only voice at the Christian rally, was one pastor, and he was arrested. Yet at the protest, as many angry people as wanted to speak were granted free access and protection.

At the same time as America is being looted, burned and assaulted by thugs, the leftist Governors are putting the screws to the local church. They are so blindly anti-Christian that they don’t care how blatant their double-standard is.

They see us as passive. The see us as apathetic. They see us as compliant. And, sadly, for the most part, they are right.

Here, in the middle of widespread lawlessness, and massive crowds pushing against each other, are the rules for the local churches in California to reopen: “Attendance must be limited to 25% of building capacity or a maximum of 100 people, whichever is lower. The limitations will remain in places for 21 days after approval. After the initial three weeks, the California Department of Public Health will work with county public health officials to review the impact of in-person gatherings at Houses of Worship and provide further direction for future services.”

Now get this: at the very same time that all restraint has been removed, allowing thousands to protest, draconian rules are being reinforced against the church. How is this possible? Since they have proven by their actions that they don’t believe the protesters pose a public health risk, there is only one conclusion to be drawn: This is not about the virus—it is about silencing the church.

Look at those rules again. Are you kidding me? If you have a 5,000-seat sanctuary and 10,000 members, only 100 get to go to church? Have your ever heard of anything crazier? In Colorado Springs, for example, New Life Church, with 10.000 members has had to go to six services on Sunday!

Worse still, is the subtle language. What we have here is not a phase, but a test. The language is ominous: “The California Department of Public Health will work with county public health officials to review the impact of in-person gatherings at Houses of Worship and provide further direction for future services.”

Yeah, sure. Reviewed by leftists with out and out antipathy toward the church. Officials can manipulate statistics to draw their own conclusions. It happened today:

L.A. reported a spike in the number of Coronavirus infections. Turns out it wasn’t a spike; it was slow record keeping.  500 people who were infected long ago, and who never made it onto the current count were added, so it just looked like a spike.

Do you really believe they can’t play games with numbers and tell the church: “Oh well, the number of infections are up, so we can’t let you have more than a hundred people, sitting 6 feet apart.”

How can any official—in the face of what they are allowing out in the streets—read those rules out loud with a straight face? Gavin Newsom tacitly approves overwhelming numbers of people in the streets behaving recklessly, but goes to extremes to squelch the church.

He is not alone. In every state where a Democrat is governor, similar madness toward the church is reigning.

Ridiculous rules that choke the life out of local churches could become permanent. Lukewarm preachers who want acceptance are traitors to us. They appear on network news and mouth the very propaganda being spewed by these blue states.

Men and women of God are at a critical point of decision. There will soon come a time when the rules will no longer make sense on any level. Soon, you must choose whether or not you will obey the order of your state’s governor to ‘kindly drop dead.’

The hour is upon us when we must rise up with one voice and cast off these chains they want to put on all of us. Are you ready for the day when you must obey God, rather than men?

WHEN THEY DECLARE CHRISTIANITY A VIRUS

Democrat Governors must believe there are two viruses. There is the Covid-19, which is especially toxic in church buildings, barber shops, and small businesses. That explains why churches and small local businesses must shut down or many people will die.

And apparently Covid-19 causes brain damage and diminishes the ability of pastors and small business owners to take the proper precautions to protect their people.

Here’s the second virus Democrat Governors must believe exists. Let’s call it Covid-20. It is different, it is selective. Covid-20 only targets businesses like Costco, Home Depot, marijuana dispensaries, and Planned Parenthood.  And because it is a kinder, gentler, more manageable virus, Covid-20 doesn’t force a closure of those establishments.

If you are so cynical as to believe that there is only one virus and that this a politically motivated double-standard…shame on you! If you think it is punishment for how Christians and small business owners tend to vote—that is disgusting.

But seriously, when will the restrictions end? It seems the all-wise governors have no idea when it should be deemed safe for the economy to open again. They either can’t or won’t define “safety.” That is because they are only interested in a power grab, and are setting us up for permanent changes.

Yesterday, Gavin Newsom proved there is a double standard. When thousands of churches told him that they would open up this coming Sunday, and President Trump declared churches essential, Newsom immediately pivoted and announced churches could reopen. Why? Did science change? Did he see something new? Nothing changed, and yet it is suddenly okay to reopen churches?

He was saving face when forced to by the millions who have stopped listening and obeying him. He wanted to look like he still had control.  He claims his actions are based on science. And, indeed, it is based on science, political science.

And why should we be surprised by all this? California Democrats have hated the church for years. They have punished Christians repeatedly. They tried to ban the Bible—they limited the size of church buildings—they fought to get sermons tagged as hate speech. The idea of churches shutting down makes their mouths water.

To the Pastors who seek guidance on whether or not to open, I say, “Open your eyes!” We are watching a dress rehearsal for something much bigger. This is a drill.

Here’s what the drill accomplished: It set the mechanism in place for future church shutdowns. It tested public reaction to see if there would be widespread outrage. And apparently it worked, because Americans acted like sheep, willing to trade their Constitutional rights for a bogus “safety.”

What this rehearsal did was to embolden the enemies of freedom. Next time, they won’t need a pandemic to shut down churches—they can treat the church as if it were the virus. And what will you do when they declare Christianity to be a virus? Chicago already thinks that way.

Churches are so dangerous to Chicago Democrats that they have threatened to bulldoze churches that dare to have services. The Liberty Counsel reports:

“In a letter delivered Saturday, May 23, Chicago Health Commissioner Allison Arwady wrote, “I am authorized to seek to enjoin such nuisance or to cause the same to be summarily abated in such manner as I may direct….” The letter ended by stating that “the City will take steps necessary to abate, including Summary Abatement.”

According to the Illinois Supreme Court, “Summary abatement would mean to put down or destroy without process. This means the inspector can, upon his own judgment, cause the alleged nuisance to stop on his own authority and effect a destruction of property at his discretion.” City of Kankakee v. New York Cent. R. Co., 387 Ill. 109, 116, 55 N.E.2d 87, 90 (1944).”

To know what to do you must consider these facts:

There are thirteen states that have been open for more than three weeks now (prior to 5/1), and these states have seen daily coronavirus cases fall 29%.

Meanwhile, in California, death is coming from several other sources: not only are businesses failing, resulting in unemployment and bankruptcy, but suicides, since the start of the shutdown, have now surpassed deaths from the virus. Drug addiction has increased. And in several states, the number of DUI’s has doubled. The damage from isolation is taking a severe toll in many forms, from homicides to divorces, from child abuse to spousal abuse. That is why churches need to be open, to stem the tide of these tragedies.

What if being closed is doing more harm than being open? Can you live with the fact that when your people needed you the most, and when your nation needed you the most, you remained compliant based on bad information and false fear?

Millions of your fellow Americans live in a police state. They are being illegally arrested, attacked, and shamed for doing nothing but living their lives in a legal and peaceful manner.

You want a safe church? I am sorry, but it can’t be both safe and Christian. The Gates of Hell are arrayed against the church of Jesus. On the basis of what He won on the Cross, Christ promised us victory. But He never promised a victory without our taking a stand against evil. We most oppose both demonic and human evil.

History shows us the pattern of how free churches become underground churches. In each instance, there was a window of action and opportunity. That window is before us, but only for a short season.

So, I ask you again, what will you do in the future, if the state declares Christianity a virus?

CHRISTIANS WHO BLINDLY PUT THEIR TRUST IN STATE OFFICIALS ARE GOING TO GET BURNED

The time is soon coming when you must decide: should you open your church or business? To settle the question in your heart, you must peel back the layers of lies. There are wrong reasons for reopening, and wrong reasons for remaining closed. But if either reason is based on the “wisdom” of the officials in your State, you are going to get burned.

God can speak to a pastor to keep his church closed, but it had better be God speaking and not just the fear of man. We see ministers every day, soothingly expounding online how they ‘don’t want to offend.’  They tell you in super-spiritual terms that they ‘want to send the right signal to Governors’—but, if that’s their goal, they need to wake up.

People like California Governor Gavin Newsom are unmoved by your gesture. Their malice toward you predated the shutdown, and it will continue long after the shutdown. Compliant churches will have no effect on either the attitude or the plans of leftist Governors. You will get zero, zilch, nada, from them for being compliant, and staying closed.

If pleasing your State government—and not God—is your reason for staying closed, you’re wasting your time. Your reason must be God, and only God.

And, just as importantly, if your motive for reopening a church or business is to thumb your nose at politicians just to prove a point, you will also be burned. You must reopen because your conscience, convictions, and your God have moved you to action. My hope is that after you read my message, it will be clearer to you what action you should take.

Here are things that must not factor into your decision:

The state knows best:

 They lied about their goals. They told us they would reopen when the infection rate flattened. Now, without any rational explanation, they moved the goal post and ordered us to stay closed until there is a cure. Look at me: as is true for so many other diseases, we may never find a cure. For instance, there is no “cure” for the flu, and it kills 40,000 people every year. So, does that mean churches, businesses and schools will stay closed forever? State officials are showing you proof positive that they are making this up as they go along. They are in no position to tell us what we must do.

Exaggeration:

Most of what we hear from the panic-stricken Left—to put it kindly—is an exaggeration. When the State of Georgia reopened, the Left flew into a rage, promising us that thousands would die in a fresh infection. Several days later, we have seen that their claims never transpired and Georgia was right to take a realistic view of the coronavirus. And today, New York’s Governor Cuomo dropped a hint that schools ‘may not be able to open in September,’ which looks very much like a kind of ‘toe in the water’ to test public outrage.

Our witness:

Another argument some pastors make in defense of staying closed, is that it is a bad witness to the community. Once again, they are short-sighted. Millions of Americans, and an increasing number every day, are convinced that we are now a police state. They see the virus as an excuse for a leftist, socialist dictatorship to take over and destroy their livelihood.  So, let me ask you something? How do you think the churches who facilitated state sponsored destruction of their freedoms now appear to their neighbors?  How will they look to people who lost everything they have worked for to this tyranny?

The courts:

The next fact that should show you the truth, is what the courts are doing. They are striking down some of the shutdown orders of certain States, and several Federal Courts agree that States have seized power over churches and businesses illegally. What is most important to you, is not just that the courts correctly sided with the Constitution, but that they also factored in the best medical information available to weigh the risks.

Hatred of Trump:

Here’s the litmus test for reopening or not reopening: Find me one single avid fan of America remaining closed who does not also hate Trump. Everyone knows that these Governors want to destroy Trump and if that means they have to destroy the economy, so be it.

Think of that for a moment. We have people in State Houses who would rather see thousands of people die than have Trump reelected…and you are trying to curry their favor by agreeing to kill your business or permanently damage your congregation? Sorry, there’s no way God is in that—and you are going to get burned.

Why would you trust state officials that the courts, and a growing majority of Americans, consider criminals? The church is the last hope of America, and we must not give in to the plans of those who hate us.

“Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law, have fellowship with You? They gather together against the life of the righteous, and condemn innocent blood. But the Lord has been my defense, and my God is the rock of my refuge. He has brought upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; the Lord our God shall cut them off” (Psalm 94:20).

I WARNED YOU

If this doesn’t cause the Church of Jesus Christ to arise, nothing will. Several weeks ago, I issued a warning that has now become painfully real. I predicted that the Democrats on the Left would use the pandemic to permanently control the church.

On May 1, I had written: “Long after the virus is no longer a viable threat, every State under Democrat rule will keep churches closed as long as possible. And even after they allow us to open, there will be permanent irrational limitations placed on us.”

And these were my exact words on March 15: “Few things are more dangerous right now than the state drifting from justifiable health guidelines into police brutality. Only a fool doesn’t know about the growing outright hostility toward Christians in the Blue states. Their mouths are watering at the prospect of shutting down churches. They are looking for any excuse, and we must rebuke all demonic power and ask God to cause the fire of revival to fall on churches everywhere. The disruption of churches in America is from Satan. Pure and simple.”

Kansas City, MO, Mayor Quinton Lucas (D) issued the threat I warned you about:  “As Kansas City begins reopening, the local government is requiring every church who wishes to provide services to turn in, when asked, a detailed list of every person who enters their building for services, including name, phone number, and address, so city officials can use it for surveillance and tracking purposes. Failure to comply could result in up to 6 months in jail and the church being completely shut down.”

Do you honestly believe their surveillance will end after the pandemic? Do you think the data they collect will be deleted as soon as the virus is gone? Red China has nothing on Missouri.

Any pastor, who won’t risk jail rather than comply with this order, is, in my opinion, a traitor to the Constitution, his people, and his Bible. There, I said it.

The situation gets darker. Sacramento, California is the seat of this revolution to undo the rights of churches by using the virus as an excuse. They make Mayor Quinton look like a moderate when it comes to planning and executing a police state.

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) admits the pandemic was the opportunity to pull the pin out of the grenade. When he was asked if he saw the virus as a political opportunity to advance progressive policies he said: “There is opportunity for reimagining a [more] progressive era as it [relates] to capitalism,” Gov. Newsom said. “So yes, absolutely we see this as an opportunity to reshape the way we do business and how we govern.”

Thus, California formed the Western States Alliance. Their prima facie purpose is to coordinate the reopening of California, Oregon, Nevada, and Washington. We know that this newly formed politburo will exert power long after the reopening. They will work together to force socialism and atheism on America. The U.S. Constitution is in their crosshairs.

This is California’s opportunity to accelerate their plan to weaken the local church and ultimately erase Christian influence from America.

Remember Assembly Bill 2943? Back in 2018, California tried to pass a bill that would have left a loophole open to make the Bible a “fraudulent document that could be banned,” because the Bible is opposed to “sexual orientation change.”

Now they are wounding the church by using nebulous guidelines for reopening. Get this: They keep changing the rules to keep pastors off balance and delay their public gatherings until it weakens all churches, and closes some church doors for good.

Gavin Newsom said that first he will go after capitalism and then he is saying, “wait’ll I get my hands on the church.”

The next step is to sneak in new rules for how the church will operate. Social distancing may continue indefinitely, putting an onerous burden on churches. It will be a political siege designed to force churches to cave, and decide it is not worth it to buck the system.

So what does all this mean? And what action does it demand?

First, we must admit they have declared an evil war on us. We must quit being cowards, and face the truth. They are doing evil. They want to drive the church underground. Doubt that fact, and you are part of the problem. Say it is someone else’s responsibility, and you are helping evil destroy America.

You know they are breaking Federal Law and the Constitution. Every believer must wake up and do their indisputable duty: to oppose this evil. The price of apathy at this point is incalculable. The curse you are putting on your children and grandchildren is a nameless horror.

What specific action should we take? Our action must first be to enter into Spiritual Warfare, but it cannot end there. Our battle plan is drawn from 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, “The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ…”

By the power of fervent intercession and unction in preaching, we must destroy the sophisticated argument that says the church should be oppressed by government, long after the pandemic is gone.

Then, when there is no reasonable danger of infection, pastors must reopen their churches, and if necessary, practice civil disobedience to laws that would keep their church shutdown for any reason that is demonstrably a matter of persecution and not a health issue. If enough churches do this, it will go to the Supreme Court, and the states will lose power.

Furthermore, preachers must tear up every talking point that California, and the Western Alliance demands you to preach in your pulpit. We must make it a matter of life and death to remain faithful to the Word of God.

Beyond that, we must operate our churches under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. If God wants your church packed out, then forget what the state wants.

Now, listen to me as you have never listened. Jesus said, “On this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it” Matthew 16:18.

Do you believe that verse? The ‘gates’ referred to are not just physical gates, but plans and strategies.

Jesus will never allow the plans that hell has to destroy the Church He is building. If we want the power of this promise, we must be the Church He is building—we must build His Church, right through the gates of Sacramento, if necessary.

 

NINE LITTLE WORDS

We cannot deny our lives have been disrupted to an extreme that Americans have not experienced since the Second World War.

Suddenly, we have been plunged into a world that we had previously only seen in disaster movies. All the professional sports that most Americans worship are gone. California’s children will stay home probably until the fall. Las Vegas has been shut down.  Sin City’s credo was, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” but now it’s, “Nothing is happening here.”

We have no idea what will ultimately happen to our economy. We are huddled in our homes trying to figure out the best way to ride this out—hoping the doomsday voices are wrong.

What bothers me the most is the behavior of so-called Christians on social media. I have never seen so much self-promotion. Videos infest the internet with “words from God.” Some say this will turn out to be nothing. Others tell us it is the end. They gargle with gunpowder and then shoot their mouths off. They dispense silliness in the name of God. All they really crave is attention. You should document their predictions and hold them accountable for false prophecy when this is all over.

There is only one reason I am writing this and there is only one group I am writing it to. I am writing this to you because God has done an epic miracle in my soul, and this is a message for the remnant of God who have been hidden until this very moment. They are in this crisis by design. They are in for an amazing surprise.

This is not for the carnal Christian. If that’s you, you still need one more lap around reality before you will have a heart for the Glory that God will reveal in His core believers. So here goes…a message to God’s hidden people who are groping for answers for what to do during this quarantine and pandemic.

Like you, I had to deal with the sudden and shocking change brought about by the coronavirus quarantine. There are many who are going through things far worse than I am. But what I went through was still pretty bad.

A week ago, I felt as if I had lost everything. The coronavirus scare closed down our tent crusades. For me and for our team it is a devastating loss. I am not exaggerating: I truly collapsed before God from sheer sorrow.

Out of it, God led me to nine words that David spoke. He said nine words that tell the prophetic core exactly what to do in this crisis. I present to you what every pastor, leader, business person, parent, and young person who is under a heavy call of God needs to do right now.

You will find the answer in the 30th chapter of 1 Samuel. When David lost everything and his men were ready to stone him, he did something remarkable. The Bible says, “He encouraged himself in the Lord.” That is amazing enough, but it’s what he did next that’s even more amazing.

To get anything out of these words, you must first grasp the utter despair that David felt before he spoke them. Remember, David was a man who had been anointed and over whom prophecy had been spoken that he would be King, but in an instant, he became as poor as a slave.

Here’s the picture: 1 Samuel 30:3 “So David and his men came to the city, and there it was, burned with fire; and their wives, their sons, and their daughters had been taken captive. Then David and the people who were with him lifted up their voices and wept, until they had no more power to weep.” Filled with despair, David’s own men were about to kill him.

The nine words I am going to show you were the greatest psalm David ever spoke. In this ‘accidental psalm,’ David glorified God like he had never glorified God before.

Here are the nine words: “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?”

Don’t let their simplicity fool you! David glorified God in what he did not say, as much as in what he did say. Even though he felt rage and grief he did not insult God’s character. He did not rail against his circumstances. David did not sin with his mouth. There was no, “Why did you let this happen to me?” Or, “How can I trust you when you can’t even protect my family?”

David was practicing what he preached in Psalm 19:9, “The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.”

From David’s example, I knew better than to waste valuable time rehearsing the disastrous effects of the coronavirus on our ministry. I needed something else. And so do you.

David did not torture himself by dwelling on why it had gotten so bad. He knew the goodness, mercy and wisdom of God. He didn’t even ask for comfort. Think of that!

No, he knew he needed to ask for something else.  Can you guess what that is? He needed direction. DIRECTION! And that, my friend, is what you need most.

Take Mario Murillo Ministries for an example. We are in deep prayer about what to do next. My concern is not the tent crusades. When the lock down is lifted we will be ready. We will move with all the force of the pent up zeal and fire in our bones!

No, my real concern is what God would have us do in the meantime. Somehow, I believe God is about to reveal to us an amazing method and an idea that will launch us to harvest souls in a way we never imagined.

Yes, in the natural, this is a terrifying situation. Cities have shut down. Businesses are being destroyed, and people are dying.  Still, nothing could be worse than wringing our hands and wallowing in vain imaginations about why this happened, and what may happen next.

The Holy Spirit is waiting to give us marching orders. He wants to give us the wisdom necessary to not only stay safe, but to exploit this crisis for the Glory of God.

God answered David and gave him a promise: “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all” (1 Samuel 30:8).

That was all David needed to launch out and go attack the enemy. He didn’t know how it would happen but he did not let his men slow him down. He ordered them to mount up and ride! When his men saw David on his horse, it reminded them of all the past victories that came from following David into battle.

David sat high and looked at them with a look that spoke volumes, it said, in essence, “Do you want to kill me or do you want to get your wives and kids back?” They followed David, rode after the enemy, miraculously found them, and got back everything and more besides.

You need to talk to your soul and ask yourself, “Do you want to sit here paralyzed by fear or do you want to get up and follow God into total restoration of everything the devil has stolen?”

As far as Mario Murillo Ministries is concerned we will win souls! No matter what. I solemnly promise you that the enemy will pay. This crisis will not lessen our soul winning—in the end it will increase it!

This is what Paul said in Philippians 1:12-14, “I want to report to you, friends, that my imprisonment here has had the opposite of its intended effect. Instead of being squelched, the Message has actually prospered.”

We all need to follow David’s example to get two things: direction and a promise. You will learn how to suppress fear and confusion. You will have no doubt that God is with you and your loved ones, to protect and provide.

You will realize that you have been secretly undergoing preparation for this very moment. Expect to hear from Jesus! Expect to know exactly what to do and how to do it.

This virus is going to pass. But the damage we will live with if we give in to fear and hesitation will not go away. You will look back on this for the rest of your life and thank God you did not give in to fear or disobey the deep work of the Holy Spirit

All it took in David’s case was nine simple words, and an impossible situation was turned into an epic victory: and the body of Christ in America is also going to experience another epic victory! Hallelujah!

NINE LITTLE WORDS

California’s Governor Gavin Newsom just tonight predicted that 56% of all Californians will be infected by the coronavirus. He just projected a humanitarian disaster beyond imagination, in the last place on earth you would ever expect it. But, if you don’t believe him or the leftist media, I don’t blame you: they have told so very many lies.

But we cannot deny our lives have been disrupted to an extreme that we have not experienced since the Second World War.

Suddenly, we have been plunged into a world that we had previously only seen in disaster movies. All the professional sports that most Americans worship are gone. California’s children will stay home probably until the fall. Las Vegas has been shut down.  Sin City’s credo was, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” but now it’s, “Nothing is happening here.”

Videos infest the internet with “words from God.” Some say this will turn out to be nothing. Others tell us it is the end. They gargle with gunpowder and then shoot their mouths off. They dispense silliness in the name of God. All they really crave is attention. You should document their predictions and hold them accountable for false prophecy when this is all over.

There is only one reason I am writing this and there is only one group I am writing it to. I am writing this to you because God has done an epic miracle in my soul, and this is a message for the remnant of God who have been hidden until this very moment. They are in this crisis by design. They are in for an amazing surprise.

This is not for the carnal Christian. If that’s you, you still need one more lap around reality before you will have a heart for the Glory that God will reveal in His core believers. So here goes…a message to God’s hidden people who are groping for answers for what to do during this quarantine and pandemic.

Like you, I had to deal with the sudden and shocking change brought about by the coronavirus quarantine. There are many who are going through things far worse than I am. But what I went through was still pretty bad.

A week ago, I felt as if I had lost everything. The coronavirus scare closed down our tent crusades. For me and for our team it is a devastating loss. I am not exaggerating: I truly collapsed before God from sheer sorrow.

Out of it, God led me to nine words that David spoke. He said nine words that tell the prophetic core exactly what to do in this crisis. I present to you what every pastor, leader, business person, parent, and young person who is under a heavy call of God needs to do right now.

You will find the answer in the 30th chapter of 1 Samuel. When David lost everything and his men were ready to stone him, he did something remarkable. The Bible says, “He encouraged himself in the Lord.” That is amazing enough, but it’s what he did next that’s even more amazing.

To get anything out of these words, you must first grasp the utter despair that David felt before he spoke them. Remember, David was a man who had been anointed and over whom prophecy had been spoken that he would be King, but in an instant, he became as poor as a slave.

Here’s the picture: 1 Samuel 30:3 “So David and his men came to the city, and there it was, burned with fire; and their wives, their sons, and their daughters had been taken captive. Then David and the people who were with him lifted up their voices and wept, until they had no more power to weep.” Filled with despair, David’s own men were about to kill him.

The nine words I am going to show you were the greatest psalm David ever spoke. In this ‘accidental psalm,’ David glorified God like he had never glorified God before.

Here are the nine words: “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?”

Don’t let their simplicity fool you! David glorified God in what he did not say, as much as in what he did say. Even though he felt rage and grief he did not insult God’s character. He did not rail against his circumstances. David did not sin with his mouth. There was no, “Why did you let this happen to me?” Or, “How can I trust you when you can’t even protect my family?”

David was practicing what he preached in Psalm 19:9, “The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.”

From David’s example, I knew better than to waste valuable time rehearsing the disastrous effects of the coronavirus on our ministry. I needed something else. And so do you.

David did not torture himself by dwelling on why it had gotten so bad. He knew the goodness, mercy and wisdom of God. He didn’t even ask for comfort. Think of that!

No, he knew he needed to ask for something else.  Can you guess what that is? He needed direction. DIRECTION! And that, my friend, is what you need most.

Take Mario Murillo Ministries for an example. We are in deep prayer about what to do next. My concern is not the tent crusades. When the lock down is lifted we will be ready. We will move with all the force of the pent up zeal and fire in our bones!

No, my real concern is what God would have us do in the meantime. Somehow, I believe God is about to reveal to us an amazing method and an idea that will launch us to harvest souls in a way we never imagined.

Yes, in the natural, this is a terrifying situation. Cities have shut down. Businesses are being destroyed, and people are dying.  Still, nothing could be worse than wringing our hands and wallowing in vain imaginations about why this happened, and what may happen next.

The Holy Spirit is waiting to give us marching orders. He wants to give us the wisdom necessary to not only stay safe, but to exploit this crisis for the Glory of God.

God answered David and gave him a promise: “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all” (1 Samuel 30:8).

That was all David needed to launch out and go attack the enemy. He didn’t know how it would happen but he did not let his men slow him down. He ordered them to mount up and ride! When his men saw David on his horse, it reminded them of all the past victories that came from following David into battle.

David sat high and looked at them with a look that spoke volumes, it said, in essence, “Do you want to kill me or do you want to get your wives and kids back?” They followed David, rode after the enemy, miraculously found them, and got back everything and more besides.

You need to talk to your soul and ask yourself, “Do you want to sit here paralyzed by fear or do you want to get up and follow God into total restoration of everything the devil has stolen?”

As far as Mario Murillo Ministries is concerned we will win souls! No matter what. I solemnly promise you that the enemy will pay. This crisis will not lessen our soul winning—in the end it will increase it!

This is what Paul said in Philippians 1:12-14, “I want to report to you, friends, that my imprisonment here has had the opposite of its intended effect. Instead of being squelched, the Message has actually prospered.”

We all need to follow David’s example to get two things: direction and a promise. You will learn how to suppress fear and confusion. You will have no doubt that God is with you and your loved ones, to protect and provide.

You will realize that you have been secretly undergoing preparation for this very moment. Expect to hear from Jesus! Expect to know exactly what to do and how to do it.

This virus is going to pass. But the damage we will live with if we give in to fear and hesitation will not go away. You will look back on this for the rest of your life and thank God you did not give in to fear or disobey the deep work of the Holy Spirit

All it took in David’s case was nine simple words, and an impossible situation was turned into an epic victory: and the body of Christ in America is also going to experience another epic victory! Hallelujah!

THE LEFTISTS OF CALIFORNIA ARE TODAY’S PHARISEES

The Beast described in the 13th chapter of the book of Revelation isn’t after justice, equality, or the wellbeing of people. He is also called the false prophet who will absorb the power of the world and bestow it on the antichrist. California government is behaving the same way—absorbing a way of life to offer it to the God of “Wokeness.”

They have unleashed misery on the people. They have turned God fearing, hardworking, law abiding citizens into hostages in their own homes.

Gavin Newsom and his cohorts have proven they don’t want a better life for law-abiding Californians. Quite the opposite—they are hell-bent on ending something they don’t understand, in favor of something they can’t even define. They are acting as if they are part of some kind of doomsday cult.

Nothing else explains their tyrannical intrusion into every aspect of the lives of Californians. Nothing else explains their blatant suspension of the Bill of Rights in California—specifically: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, and the right to bear arms.

The leftists of California are today’s Pharisees. There are three ways in which they behave like the Pharisees in the New Testament.

1. They have laid aside the Word of God in favor of their traditions. Jesus told the Pharisees they were guilty of “laying aside the commandment of God,” telling them, “you hold the tradition of men.” (Mark 7:8).

The leftists in Sacramento have done this not only to the Bible, but to the Constitution of the United States. Their treatise of tyranny is called “California values.” These values, which they want to be the blueprint for the other 49 states, overrule freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and the right to dissent. 

Here are the very words of the Constitution: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

California has denied those who defy their politics or religious views the right to assemble. They dare to call it a ‘safety precaution.’ California social media instantly bans voices they deem contrary to “California values.”

One California Congressman named Evan Low even said to the Christian churches of California, “The church must evolve.” And if you dare to disagree with their agenda, they feel they have the right to disband your organization.

2. They won’t lift a finger.

How perfectly Ricky Gervais exposed Hollywood Pharisees when he said, “People who live in obscene luxury and entitlement have no business scolding everyday hard working people.”

Jesus said, “(The Pharisees) bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do to be seen by men.” (Matthew 23:4-5)

3. They are hypocrites: They decry global warming, but fly everywhere in private jets, leaving a huge carbon footprint. They want to take away your guns, but their private security is armed to the teeth. They want you to sacrifice, but they will live as they please.

Silicon Valley is a bastion of income inequality. Their hypocrisy knows no limit. They say all the right things—with that familiar smug, distant look on their faces—and yet, they condemn Wall Street for all the things they themselves do.

Google, Apple, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter are all hypocrites. Apple bills itself as a champion of human rights but uses sweatshops in China. Google says, “Don’t be evil,” but censors anyone who has opposing views.  Facebook and Twitter shadow-ban Christians and Conservatives, even as they are touting ‘freedom of expression’ and the beauty of ‘sharing ideas.’

Here is the new sacrament of Sacramento:

Thou shalt have drag queens read to your children in public libraries. Thou shalt let boys into your little girl’s restroom at school. Thou shalt be taught about sexual positions and self-gratification in the classroom. Thou wilt not farm the land because we must use the water to save a 4 inch fish. Thou shalt not cut the underbrush even if it causes massive wildfires. Thou shalt welcome the thousands of felons and sexual predators we release into your neighborhood and let them double your crime rate. Thou shalt not have healthcare, yet thou shalt be taxed to pay for the healthcare of those who came here illegally. Thou shalt help pay for free needles for drug addicts, and free contraceptives and abortions through your taxes. Thou shalt be homeless while non-citizens are housed and veterans sleep under bridges. Thou shalt call MS-13 gangsters ‘children of God,’ as Mother Nancy hast said. Thou shalt not turn over to the police illegals who have murdered Americans—even if they murder thine own child.

Finally, there is the vast human tragedy unfolding in the Central Valley of California. A PBS report said, “In the suburbs of East Contra Costa County, the poverty rate has grown by more than 70 percent in the past decade.”  That doesn’t begin to tell the story of every way in which California has failed millions living in the cities on Highway 99.

Stress and despair drives an alcohol and drug epidemic. Highway 99 is the most dangerous highway in America for DUI.  The gangs are expanding and oppress the people. Farmers watch land turn into dust bowls while trillions of gallons of fresh water are pouring into the Bay. Despair is everywhere.

I rebuke this devil—this heresy of “California values.” We are taking our tent and a message of signs, wonders and miracles into the mouth of this dragon. There is a special vengeance resting upon me because I know that the good people who live along Highway 99 deserve better. Yes, I will take it out on the devil for the lies he has told California. I nurse a fond wish, not only for massive revival, but for an awakening that rises to action and votes these criminals out of office!

 

Making America Like California

Even though California is an unambiguous disaster, Democrats are fighting to make us all surrender to California’s agenda. That is what the 2020 Election is all about: making America like California: a godless, anti-Christian, socialist hellhole.

Michael Bloomberg, Democratic presidential candidate: “I think that California can serve as a great example for the rest of this country. You have led the way on climate change, on fighting gun violence and on criminal justice, and you have as importantly, welcomed immigrants with open arms.”

God is warning us in advance.  He wants us to lose our denial.  Don’t look at your Red State, or your on-fire church, and laugh off the threat.  It is a real and present danger.  The Holy Spirit is calling for immediate action.  He has a plan to stop the California agenda.

Can this agenda really spread to the other 49 States in America? It already has. Here is how it got there, and why it will spread even further:

Red States on the verge of turning Blue:   Texas is now considered a toss-up state for 2020. Don’t forget, there was a day not long ago when believers in California could not imagine the laws that will, in the future, lead to banning Bibles and shutting down Christian services.  We never imagined losses to Democrats or even close races in many Red States. The amount of out-of-state money that was poured into Texas to defeat Ted Cruz is an omen for future elections.

Teachers unions:  The National Education Association is the largest interest group in the United States.  That means the roots of radical indoctrination on gender and socialism are already in your child’s classroom.  This union is waiting for the events in California to unfold and gain wider acceptance before they make their move to go nationwide.

The Democrat Party: Because of the mini-Blue wave, you will see the Left slip these elements of California’s agenda into their political platform.

Gavin Newsom: If you think Jerry Brown was bad, Gavin Newsom is even worse. He will put every last drop of his influence and California’s resources into spreading California’s model.  The left-leaning Washington Post said, “For those who think California politics is on the far-left fringe of the national spectrum, stand by. The next election season, already well underway here, will showcase a younger generation of Democrats that is more liberal and personally invested in standing up to President Trump’s Washington.”

Universities:  The local university your child attends already includes these tenets as a part of their curriculum.  Students will be graded on whether they agree or disagree with these values.

Hollywood celebrities: They are getting bolder and bolder about sexual immorality.  They label any young person who doesn’t agree with their anything-goes agenda, intolerant and ignorant.

Social media: In a speech at Google headquarters, LGBT activist Samuel Brinton promised to “figure out” how to stop “pastors…” “I may not be able to find every little camp…every pastor, but I can make it something that is culturally unacceptable,” he said.”

The captains of social media, Bay area-based Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, want this agenda to take over America.  Nearly every young person in America has at least one of these accounts.

Lukewarm Churches: They are the biggest reason this radical agenda will continue to proliferate.  The combination of leftist radicals and lukewarm churches has created the perfect storm in California.  That weather pattern is now spreading all over America.

Beloved, I don’t care if you are in Oklahoma or Alabama…this hideous agenda is festering and God wants us to take action, and take action now!  I believe we can reverse this curse and see nationwide revival if we begin to do these things immediately:

Pray in a way you have never prayed before:  It is time to call together a unified company of intercessors. It is time to divert them away from separate issues and focus prayer on a specific target.

I said this before: Stand between heaven and earth as a true intercessor.  Invoke the Name above all Names to get to the very Throne of God with your petition.  Do what Moses did when he raised the rod of Aaron over the battle. When you pray, pray violently, pray exactingly, detailing the damage you want done and where you want it done. By the Spirit, speak directly to evil powers. Call them out and cast them down.  Destroy their power over America. “For this purpose was the Son of God manifested, to destroy the works of the evil one” (1 John 3:8)

If you are in a lukewarm church, get out!  Stop supporting them.  Stop kidding yourself that you are there to minister to people.  We no longer have that luxury.  If you are not hearing the Bible preached, and you are not seeing the Holy Spirit move, get out, and find a church that is on fire for God.

Never mind all of the perks.  Consider the word of God which says, “Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud” (Proverbs 16:19).

Even more direct are the words of Paul: “Having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” (2 Timothy 3:5)

I promise you there is a man or woman of God not far from you who is staying true and fighting the battle of their life. They are getting attacked on all sides by a godless generation and by churches that are seeker-friendly and that mock their integrity. Find a minister who is on fire, join them, and then watch the Holy Spirit raise up an army!

Become an informed witness.  I have written to you about stolen thunder How Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson reach millions because they expose lies.   Follow this link to read the article Stolen Thunder https://wp.me/p1vrzp-5oR

Christians have an even greater capacity for exposing lies and opposing bad government.  Proverbs 28: 2 says, “Because of the transgression of a land, many are its princes; but by a man of understanding and knowledge Righteousness will be prolonged.”

Even more powerful is this promise from Jesus in Luke 21:13, “But it will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony. 14 Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will answer; 15 for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.”

Someone reading this is not supposed to be a preacher.  You are supposed to be in government or in journalism…perhaps even television news.  The point is that if Christians would just stop hiding and let the Holy Spirit train them and embolden them, we would be able to disrupt Satan’s plans for America.

At the very least, we need to go to our children’s schools armed with an understanding of parental rights and a firm knowledge of our convictions.  We can stop radical teachers and politicians if we obey the Holy Spirit.

It is not too late for any State in America…it is not too late, even for California.  We just need to be bold and obedient.  However, we are running out of time.

Finally, I must say what I have said to you before: When God sees someone take up the mighty weapons of God—in the Name of Jesus—and attempt the impossible—God will muster all of the resources of heaven to bring that someone total victory!

 

 

 

 

 

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!

 

 

 

WHAT WE’LL DO

Without a miracle, in 1 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.

Here is what we are going to do about it.

In 1972, I stood in the rain outside the Pauley Ballroom at UC Berkeley. Inside, Jane Fonda led a thousand students in a chorus of obscenities.  They were cursing God and America. Instinctively, I raised my Bible and pointed it at the Ballroom and I vowed that one day I would lead an even bigger and louder crowd to shout praises to God and to pray for His blessing on America.

In less than three years I saw my vow fulfilled in vivid detail as the Jesus Movement changed the mood of the nation.

Today I am pointing my Bible again—but this time toward California and all the devils from hell that are behind the same leftist agenda and anti-God spirit which is again screaming and cursing our nation. And once again, I am expecting a miracle!

Part one:  Face the facts.

Fact: Right now, those who are the best equipped to win young Californian hearts are wealthy leftist politicians, atheists, media moguls, singers and actors.  They have the biggest stage, the loudest microphones, and the largest bankroll.

Fact: They all have this in common: They despise Jesus Christ, the Bible, America, Donald Trump, Israel, and you.

Fact:  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 in California sees no future for Christianity in the state. They have made it their mission to drive true believers out of what they consider “their” state.

Fact:  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.

Fact:  They are ahead of schedule.  Without a miracle, in 1 short year, the America you have always known and loved will be gone forever.  The unified efforts of the God-haters are paying off in a big way, and California is the leader of this national coup.

This land of opportunity, this nation under God, this firewall against tyranny, this lighthouse for the Gospel is gasping for air beneath an avalanche of wickedness that is spewing out of California.

So what is Mario Murillo Ministries going to do?  We are beginning our second year of soul winning along Highway 99 in California. 

Our tent crusades have proven the hunger for Christ among the masses of people in this state. We begin with profound soberness and immovable resolve. Even though we have had results, they are nowhere near the results we seek, and nowhere near the results we know God will give us.

Part two:  Here is what we are going to do in 2020, step by step.

Step1:  Pray:  “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus” [Acts 4: 29, 30].

We are going to pray.  And not just any prayer, but the specific prayer that Peter prayed after the church was threatened.  He did not pray to escape—but to confront.  Peter wanted boldness.  He wanted power.  He wanted signs and wonders to prove the message of Christ.  We find ourselves in that exact same situation.  We must emulate his prayer and look for the same result.

Step 2: Plan:  Any plan devised by man is doomed, but no plan that comes through the agency of prayer will fail.  The plan that we seek will put us among lost souls and put lost souls in our events. The Holy Spirit will infuse us with a strategy that neutralizes the resistance to the Gospel.

Step 3: Prove:  Living Proof must not be a symbolic title.  It must be reality.  Whatever we have to do, whatever it takes to free the Holy Spirit to work in our tent meetings, we will do it.  We must come, saturated with prayer and expecting supernatural manifestations.  Our unambiguous goal must be to remove our flesh from the equation so that God will cause hardened hearts to fall before Him in utter amazement and surrender.

God must stretch His hand over an angry culture, perform supernatural healings, and overrule the agenda of man. It’s what we do in the tent.

Step 4: Plant:  Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations.” We must pray for the Lord to bring together churches of like heart to join us.  We must give converts the greatest chance of success by planting them in churches that believe as we do: in revival, the gifts of power, and the integrity of Scripture.

In conclusion:  To make a difference, we must see the threat.  To retake our nation, we must call on God.  We must speak out loud and clear.  We must provoke the lukewarm to action, and the lost to redemption.

As I said in the beginning: today I am pointing my Bible again.  This time I am pointing it at the heart of an evil regime that is calling evil good and good evil.  And I refuse to be afraid.  I refuse to back down.  And I refuse to think small or let up on our assault on the powers of darkness in California.

Please continue to pray without ceasing for our final tent crusade of 2019 in Hanford, California.  Pray as if the future of America depends on it! Now for this special video invitation.
