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

 

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!
