Yes, we have had to turn down invitations. It’s time you knew why. We live in an evil time with explosive changes. We are assigned to the front line to see unprecedented miracles. I am honored by invitations to come and minister. We are prepared to help advance the Kingdom of God in any area…in your area, but we simply cannot be a part of business as usual. I want to tell you the best way we can help you and the reasons we have had to turn down invitations.
We reach out to unchurched people–especially youth. We offer proof of Christ’s power to heal, deliver and save. We pray our event with you will lead to a general ongoing awakening in your area.
We can help when leaders are willing to do certain things. Here is the list and the Bible verses that confirm them.
1. Invite other churches to be involved. We do not require a certain number of churches to be involved but we consider it vital to open the meeting to as many as possible. No true move of God has ever blessed just one church. Luke 5: 6, 7 “And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. “
2. Invite community leaders to participate. Leaders from business, education, law enforcement, politics and the media should be invited to participate. People in these fields often have access to people and resources that ministers do not have. They may also have just as great a burden for the city. By asking for their help, you can greatly multiply your resources and impact. Acts 16:14 “Now a certain woman named Lydia heard us. She was a seller of purple from the city of Thyatira, who worshiped God. The Lord opened her heart to heed the things spoken by Paul. 15 And when she and her household were baptized, she begged us, saying, “If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come to my house and stay.” So she persuaded us.”
3. Be willing to move the meeting from your church to a neutral auditorium. We have no problem beginning a meeting in your sanctuary, but we need a willingness to move to a neutral site. Whenever we do this, the level of power intensifies. We have also learned that the unchurched are far more likely to attend if the meeting is in a neutral auditorium. Acts 26:26 “For the king knows of these things, before whom also I speak freely: for I am persuaded that none of these things are hidden from him; for this thing was not done in a corner.”
4.Understand the difference between church growth and advancing the Kingdom of God.
A.Church growth: One big reason we lost this generation is “Attraction” church models simply do not lead to moral awakening. The pressure to get new people by surprising them every week with creative cutting-edge entertainment is never-ending. There is simply no room for God to act.
B. Advancing the Kingdom of God: If the servant of God cries out for their church to advance the Kingdom of God, many wonderful things start to happen. They will grow in quantity and quality. Not only this, they will touch the urgent needs of their community and strengthen other churches.
1 Corinthians 2: 4 “And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.”
5. We want to demonstrate the supernatural with balance and integrity. Groups that engage in out-of-Bible experiences do just as much harm as attraction churches. Bizarre behavior damages our cause. An outpouring of the Holy Spirit will feature outbursts of joy and sorrow. We dare not ban these life signs of revival. What we’re against is behavior that distorts the Holy Spirit to outsiders.
1 Thessalonians 1: 5 “For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit and in much assurance, as you know what kind of men we were among you for your sake.”
In some churches the excuses were creative for why they could not do these things. Sadly, we had to walk away.
We were even willing to offer training and other resources. NEVER FORGET: WE HAVE NEVER REJECTED AN INVITATION BECAUSE A GROUP WAS UNABLE TO DO THESE THINGS BUT BECAUSE THEY WERE UNWILLING TO DO THEM. The size of your church is not nearly as important as the depth of your commitment. Some churches came up with creative excuses for why they could not do these things. Sadly, we had to walk away.
If your heart is open to all that I have written then be assured—we are ready to work alongside you to reap a great harvest in your area.
We want to help wherever there is a pure hunger for a true intervention of God. We would love nothing better than to be able to work with you to win souls, heal the sick, and to see revival.

My soul surveyed the nation. I took in the entire national crisis and prayed “What is the best thing to do now?”
THE BEST THING TO DO NOW
By Mario Murillo
(Preached at Bethel Church Redding Sunday March 19th 6 PM service.)
I stand before you tonight on the heels of a great dealing of God—perhaps the greatest dealing of God besides my conversion. God said, “Raise $1 Million—choose 10 cities—invest the money in those cities for a specific outreach and I will start a youth movement.” The ten cities had to be places that are open wounds.
This mandate led to a personal revelation that I am sharing here for the first time. My soul surveyed the nation. I took in the entire national crisis and prayed “What is the best thing to do now?”
There are many candidates for the title of best thing to do.
Unity is a great choice. Healing the division in the Body of Christ is a great choice for best thing. No matter where I go, people have an issue. The Body is so entrenched in their own camps.
Wouldn’t it be a powerful thing if all of the camps in the Body of Christ would realize that their theology is incomplete and find common ground to pool strength and hit the nation with a tsunami of compassion?
Another great choice is anointed worship music. Music gets in where sermons cannot. Music is the only art form that bypasses the brain on its way to the heart. We saw it with Andrae Crouch, Hosanna integrity, Hillsong, and the Bethel music that has gone global from this very room.
The right choice must be prayer. How could anyone consider anything to be above the power of prayer and the urgency of prayer?
The fact that none of these is what I feel in my spirit is the best thing to do now. So if none of these worthy candidates is the best…what is?
To find out we must first ask, “what does now look like?” Now we have a divided and often lukewarm American church—a church that is long on experience and ignorant of scripture.
Now let’s look outside the church walls: We have an entire generation raised without church. Judges 2:10 says, “Judges 2:10 When all that generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation arose after them who did not know the Lord nor the work which He had done for Israel.”
That—thanks to our universities—is our current problem. Our classrooms create easily offended, intolerant, fearful students. They hate free speech if it disagrees with them. They believe violence should be applied to silence an opposing viewpoint. Their credo is now: With sticks and stones I’ll break your bones because your words have hurt me.”
They are the generation that can end America. I call them generation fatal.
Liberalism run amok has unleashed a spirit of violence and lawlessness. I said in a recent blog: “America is the only nation in history where those who control the money, the airwaves, the press, and the universities, fancy themselves an underground resistance.
We are supposed to believe ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Google, Apple, Microsoft, Hollywood, every Ivy League school, plus the Democratic Party have been driven into underground revolutionary bunkers. We have come to a sad and inexplicable madness where the “Freedom Fighters” are fighting against, well, freedom. The anti-fascists are the fascists. In the name of liberation, they are taking dead aim at the Bill of Rights…not just some of it—but all of it.”
This is what now looks like. Now is pandemic drug addiction. Now is a crime wave that has reduced inner cities into killing fields. Now is tyranny in the news media. Now is duly elected president under siege. I am not here to burst your blessing bubble but:
-If we refuse to see it because we think it betrays our view of the goodness of God, we can’t obey God for a solution. We have lost our nation by default.
-If we let a cheapened view of grace weaken our holy resolve and fire.
-If we turn retreat into victory with spiritual self-entitlement…we are not only in sin but we will have to apologize the millions of oppressed Christians around the world.
So what is the best thing we can do now? It is what I learned one night after having tried everything to reach a riot-torn intellectual bastion called Berkeley.
MARIO MURILLO PREACHING ON THE BERKELEY CAMPUS OCTOBER 4TH 2014
Having tried all of the aforementioned candidates for best thing to do I went on campus late one night. God was trying to give me the answer but I wouldn’t listen. I did not know that death awaited me.
It was a dark night on Sproul Plaza. I approached a flower child, thinking this was easy pickings. As I witnessed to him a 6 foot 5-inch behemoth grabbed me and proceeded to choke me. Murder was in his eyes. It was demonic. Intellectual debate was useless against this monster.
Instantly I knew where I was wrong and what to do. It was as I was having the life choked out of me that I discovered the truth that I am going to relate to you. The power of God—out of mercy—gave me wisdom and boldness.
Somebody else took over my body—words, not of me tumbled from my lips. I ordered him to take his hands off of me. I ordered him to back off. He did. As he did, he stopped staring at me. He gazed at something behind me. It was way taller than him. He looked startled. I ran.
As I sprinted home a verse kept roaring in my soul: “not by might nor by power but by My Spirit says the Lord.” The best thing that could ever happen—the best thing for me to do—was to allow the power of God to collide with the power of Satan in a public place.
Thus began our Saturday Nights of Miracles. Miracles blasted U.C. Berkeley open. We even broke through to use the coveted Pauley Ballroom.
Miracles sustained for 10 years and now I must tell you—by the numbers—the best thing to do now:
-The best thing to do now is to break the lie that the miracles that happen in Asia, Africa, and Latin America cannot happen here. Just as He raises the dead in plain view and multiplies food and water there—it can happen here. The best thing is to break the glass ceiling we have created for miracles in America.
-Living Proof is the name of our crusades because it will take miracles to the mainstream of American culture.
From every angle our best move now is to be totally grateful for every miracle God has done and be totally starved to see more and greater miracles and to see them where they matter.
Now let me show you from different angles the absolute proof that this is our best move now.
The greatest Christian intellectual who ever lived had just seen—while arguing on Mars Hill in Athens—the futility of debating intellectual culture. On his trek from there to Corinth a conviction was emblazoned in his soul. Notice what he said:
1 Corinthians 2: And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. 2 For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. 3 I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. 4 And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
Miracles put a deep foundation in new converts: What I hope will hit you is this: Our best move now is to but a supernatural foundation in new converts—a foundation that cannot be destroyed by a professor, gang leader or a politician.
Miracles force anti-God government to back off: Acts 4: 14 “And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. “
When the greatest mind the church ever produced concluded that nothing was to be compared to the miracles of Jesus when combating a perverse culture, it should settle it for us.
These are the miracles that will ignite unity: Acts 3:11 Now as the lame man who was healed held on to Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the porch which is called Solomon’s, greatly amazed.
New songs: Psalm 96: 1 Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! Sing to the Lord, all the earth. 2 Sing to the Lord, bless His name; Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day. 3 Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.
Prayer: Now I want you to get ready to pray. Not just any prayer—but the prayer that Peter prayed that let loose a gusher of signs and wonders: Acts 4: 29 “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.”31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.”
Miracles are best for neutralizing persecution and the overreach of government. When Peter left the council who ordered the church not to speak he knew what his best move was. It is also our best move against the political correctness that has morphed into blatant tyranny.
Note that one thing he wanted was a special boldness. His precise plea reads like this: Give me the special boldness that comes while you do signs and wonders.
This is the best thing we can do now. It will crush the ramparts of Satanic power that are killing our country.
Finally, do you think I am being idealistic and naïve? Do you not see that the prime directive of Christ for those charged with spreading His Gospel was exactly what I say we need to do? Jesus said, John 14: 12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. 13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.
Let’s retrace our steps to a childlike hunger and desperation—only this time let it be with an irrefutable passion to let miracles–undeniable confirmed miracles flow in the mainstream of American culture.
Right now, people are making their way to Houston by car and plane for an event this Sunday Night. If you ask them why, their answer may surprise you:They are coming to receive a healing miracle.
LIVING PROOF COMES TO HOUSTON
You may have heard of Mario Murillo. He does not claim to heal but he directs his audience to Christ to be healed. But there is so much more to this night than that.
Mario calls these nights Living Proof because he insists they should offer proof of the love and power of Jesus. He does not believe that you should check your brain at the door and be gullible.
Living Proof is not just a night of healing. It is a night that brings a message that pierces our culture and ignites moral awakening. Mario will speak directly to your heart about the things you face every day. He answers—from the Word of God—the questions people ask about these dark days.
You will feel freedom and order. The atmosphere is neither stuffy nor mindless emotion. For Mario, it is not enough for people to claim miracles, he believes that those who are healed must go to their doctors and verify their miracle.
The most common reaction to Living Proof is how different it is from what people expected.
Jesus proved that He was the Son of God by doing miracles that no one had ever done. He said that His works would not stop. We believe that His power extends to our day and can intervene in our most impossible situations. Come and see for yourself the amazing love and power of Christ.
Join us this Sunday night at 6: PM at New Life Church. There are plenty of free seats and lots of free parking. Come early for the best seats. Bring someone who needs a miracle. Come expecting your own miracle!
Check out this video that proves miracles last. This video from 1993 shows the moment that Howard Kratzer was healed. He is still healed 23 years later.
Something we were going to do next year we are going to do now. We are ahead of schedule on something big. Let me explain: I am aflame with the passion to expose the lies that have been heaped on our children for the last 8 years. What they get on campus—what they get from Hollywood—what they get from social media…numbs the intellect, darkens the heart and devastates the spirit. Worst of all…it is killing America.
Breaking news from Mario Murillo Ministries
By Mario Murillo
Something we were going to do next year we are going to do now. We are ahead of schedule on something big. Let me explain:
I am aflame with the passion to expose the lies that have been heaped on our children for the last 8 years. What they get on campus—what they get from Hollywood—what they get from social media…numbs the intellect, darkens the heart and devastates the spirit. Worst of all…it is killing America.
Let me ask you something…what is the best thing we could do for the next generation? Bevan Jones said, “Never let a generation grow up without that knowledge of Divine things which may contain the germ of national revival in years to come.”
This sums up my passion and my unbroken focus: To give them Divine things—the proof of Jesus Christ—is what we live and breathe. Now let me ask you this what is the best way to do this? The answer is rallies. I know that sounds obvious and self-serving for an evangelist but hear me out.
Trump proved the power of rallies. Conventional wisdom said Trump would lose the election because he didn’t have a ground game. They said he was foolish to rely on events that fired people up. However, those rallies gave people hope. They were patriotic. They confronted the issues that face people every day. They caused people to vote!
We learned from this example that God wanted us to widen and deepen the impact of our rallies. The rallies are already powerful. God is spreading His Word through this ministry. Our rallies are not word alone but mighty demonstrations of His power—irresistible conviction of sin, and baptisms of the Holy Spirit.
Word, music and atmosphere combine in a way that is for this hour and for this generation. God is making an unmistakable statement. He is infusing us with power to reach the young as never.
Here is the breaking news: Two irresistible forces have come together to ignite a raging fire of urgency in my soul. It is these forces that compel me to move up something to next Sunday that we were waiting to do next year.
The first force is the unique power that came into our rally in Bakersfield. We just had a Living Proof rally in Bakersfield. A young girl in the back was targeted by the love and power of God. The Holy Spirit gave me vivid details of her condition. The oxygen went out of the room as youth beheld the power of God. It touched off a volley of miracles and a harvest of souls in a way we have never seen. The pictures you see are from that rally.
This shocking new dimension of the power of the Holy Spirit convinced me the time was now not next year.
The second force was the urgency of the national mercy we have received. I know the night is coming where no man can work. I know if we do not violently take the Kingdom right now, we will doom those who come after us. This miracle may be only temporary. I know it is fragile, and comes with grave danger. If we blow this opportunity, something worse will overtake us. Your children and grandchildren will face an unimaginable horror.
We are in danger because the left—stung by the election—is already plotting to launch a massive retaliation. Universities, billionaires and tech companies are ramping up their rhetoric, paying agitators to target the church.
The media—though utterly discredited for lying and colluding—is arrogant and delusional. Soon they will ramp up a new assault on free speech.
But the most dangerous threat is Christian apathy over Trump. They see him as a savior and a type of King Cyrus. They see history repeating itself. But here is the rest of that history. Cyrus indeed liberated the Jews, but after that he was not much help. Not only this, the Jews faced violent opposition from outside and complacency and corruption among their own. It took Israel 80 years to be restored.
I beg you, hear me now! WE DON’T HAVE 80 YEARS! This is our last chance. Trump is only a foot in the door—a stay of execution. Trump buys the church time to repent and return to her rightful influence on America.
I thought this new impact would begin next year…then Bakersfield happened. The widening and the deepening has come now! These two forces have placed an explosive mandate in me: DON’T WAIT DO IT NOW!
So, we will begin in Houston next Sunday December 4th . I know that this is short notice—so was Azusa Street! I am asking you—if you live within driving distance of Houston to consider the following challenge:
Join me for a supernatural outpouring if fire and miracles that are designed to bring this generation to Jesus. Tell youth or anyone else for that matter—they will see proof of the power of Jesus. Tell your Christian friends and family that they will be in on a Fire-starter meeting that could sweep America.
We are coming to New Life Church in Houston next Sunday December 4th at 10:30 AM and 6 PM. These are not “normal” days…and there will be nothing “normal” about these services. They are unapologetic miracle rallies. See you there! – Mario Murillo
P.S. To all of our friends across the nation…prepare for these rallies to impact your region!
It is one thing to say a miracle has taken place but it is quite another to provide the proof. Here is the actual footage of the astounding moment that a dying man was instantly healed by Christ.
Howard Kratzer moved to Phoenix to be with his grandchildren before he died. He was dying because the bottom half of his heart was dead. Even though he was on a waiting list for a heart transplant, it was almost certain he would die before a new heart became available.
He lived in the shadow of death. He took the highest dosage of nitroglycerin ever prescribed in Arizona. He was determined to stay active—especially in his church, Phoenix First Assembly of God.
His healing was so remarkable that Pastor Barnett had to take the mike and reaffirm to the audience that this was indeed an astounding miracle.
It has been 24 years since that day and Howard continues to defy all medical explanation for his new heart and health. We know who did this!
Now it is time for you to receive! Read this simple message
God wants to heal you more than you want to be healed.
Romans 8:32 asks the wounded soul that wonders about God’s willingness to heal a burning question, “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” This question echoes in eternity. Everything that you ever ask God must be asked from the foot of the Cross. It is here and here alone that you can fully see your Father’s heart toward you. The bar is set. God gave His Son for you and He will not hold back anything good from you!
- We have confused divine faith with human belief.
Human belief is the fool’s gold of miracles. It looks right, it feels right but it bitterly fails where it matters most. A miracle begins and ends with God. He is in the very first step and every subsequent step.
There are two Greek words for faith that we must understand. Though they are very close in meaning and appearance, they are a universe apart! Pistis means firm conviction or persuasion and Pistos which means dependency on or trust in something or someone.
There is human faith which convinces itself that something is going to happen. This human belief works in the mind not in the heart. Mental conviction is
vital and has its place but not in the atmosphere of the supernatural. I have seen many try to work up a miracle and think that within themselves they could
move God to heal. If they could remove doubt and repeat verses over and over again, they surmised, God would heal. When you try to use human belief in the arena of the miraculous it becomes a cold mental exercise. The faith that causes miracles is a grace of the heart that God imparts right before He heals.
I talked with two different people one night before a miracle rally. The first was a man who told me that God would heal him that night. He told me that he had them send his wheel chair away because he would not need it. “God had to live up to His word,” he spouted. This was classic pistis, powerful in daily life but not appropriate for this miracle moment. My heart sank.
I met another person and her face glowed even in her wheel chair! She said, “Today I have been with Jesus I can sense Him now, this is my night!” Here was faith, faith that moves mountains. Here was the force that created the universe imparted to this little lady’s heart. I knew that she would walk and sure enough at the appointed time in the service she rose and darted across the front of the arena!
- Jesus gives us Miracle Faith through the Holy Spirit.
Jesus gave the Holy Spirit everything that He earned on the Cross. The Holy Spirit carries us in prayer to Christ to both gain true faith and healing. If only we would grasp the power of humbling ourselves before God! If only we would rest in the surpassing goodness of God!
Right now you can stop the madness that torments your mind. Ask the Holy Spirit to carry you to Christ where you will receive Faith. Do not over analyze, do not fret…rest! Let Him do His work. Let Him carry you now. In the face of a doctor’s fearful predictions, vicious pain and weakness… rest! Do not choose the human faith that grits its teeth and wars in the natural for that which can only be won in the spirit and by the Spirit.
The Holy Spirit knows you better than you know yourself. He wants to take over your case and bear you up on wings that far surpass the wings of Angels. Soon you will lose all fear and face Jesus Himself.
- God wants to make it easy! Let us sum up the matter. It is time to do it God’s way. We are healed by Faith and no one described this faith better than Peter who said in Acts 3:16
“And his name through Faith in his name has made this man strong, whom you see and know: yes, the Faith which comes through him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.” Here is the clear and undeniable picture of Christ as the giver of Faith, Faith that heals. This is the Pistos that cannot help but heal and move mountains! This Faith cannot be present without a miracle. When you have it a strange, bold and beautiful feeling envelopes you and not only do you not doubt, you have lost the power to doubt! Perhaps this is God’s anesthesia, which He applies just before the miracle. All I know is that when it is there time stands still and all power in heaven and earth cannot stop you from receiving your complete healing.
If you need prayer, let us agree with you for a miracle. Click below to contact us!
Mario Murillo comes to the Reno/Sparks area for one miracle rally on Sunday Night September 11th at 6 PM. Mario Murillo has demonstrated the power of Jesus—to heal sickness, break addiction, and remove the cares of life—all over the world.
Why is Mario coming on 911? The damage of that day in New York still hangs like a cloud. Our dark times have taken a toll on people. Many have emotionally hit bottom. They labor and find no rest. They are asking questions that atheism and modern thought trends cannot answer. They are hungry for peace.
Mario deliberately calls his rallies LIVING PROOF because this is what he believes God gives people—living proof of His existence—living proof of His love—and living proof that He raised His Son Jesus from the dead.
Perhaps the attraction to Burning Man is to escape the world created by 911. Many found out the cure is not lasting—it went up in flames with the exhibits and the man himself. The promise of Jesus does not go away…it is eternal.
The promise of this one night is too great to put into a few words…you must experience a Living Proof Rally for yourself. This night is a gift you do not turn down. This night can turn a lifetime of pain into a miracle. Bring someone you love. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
