MANY WILL FALL AWAY BUT AN EVEN BIGGER HARVEST IS COMING

I am only days away from making one of the biggest announcements in our history.  For now, I need you to read something that explains my blogs better than anything else.  The greatest harvest in the history of Christianity will be placed in the hands of special ones—faithful ones.   Already they are being chosen.  Already they have an appointment with destiny that will bring them into an unimaginable nearness to Jesus.

These blogs rain down rebuke on the unrighteous leader—and with equal fervency—prophesy to the righteous core who have held to their integrity.  That is because—with atom of my being—I know the amazing act of God I have described to you is on the horizon. That is why we are about to take the boldest and scariest step in our history.

Some say I am always negative, but honestly, I have no say in the matter. The Holy Spirit dictates what should be said.  He understands the great crimes being committed today and the strong medicine required to be ready for the astounding harvest.

Day after day, I have written the burden the Lord has placed upon me.  Often, the words have been directed at certain leaders.  The messages have targeted shallowness, compromise, hypocrisy, and gross negligence.  Gross negligence, because it wasn’t just what they did that made them despicable—it was when they did it.  They thrashed about in false success—leaving the flock unguarded—as Satan unleashed his most destructive assault on the church and the nation.  That is a profound accusation…but I stand by it.

 

 

They made a conscious decision to exchange their calling for temporal success.  They knew they were tailoring their sermons to inflate attendance even as it deflated discipleship.  They wantonly closed their ears to the political policies that dismantled faith and morality in America.

They are as guilty as those who voted to destroy marriage—they are as guilty as those who voted to force our taxes to fund abortions—they are as guilty as the architects of the God-hating mobs that roam our streets, teach in our universities, and people our institutions.

“How could you accuse me of such things?”  To which I answer, with a broken heart, “How could you have chosen to build a man-made entertainment center when you could have surrendered to God for a moral awakening?  You could have seen revival.

Am I harsh?  Not so much as Charles Finney who said, “If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it.  If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it.”

But, these blogs which rain down rebuke on the unrighteous leader, do—with equal fervency—prophesy to the righteous core who have held to their integrity.  That is because—with atom of my being—I know an amazing act of God is on the horizon.

It will be at once glorious and humiliating.  Glorious to a company of people who, at this moment, labor in obscurity.  Suddenly they will be raised up.  At the same time many who are celebrities will suffer a great demotion.

Those who are called to this will ask and receive things that prior generations could not imagine.  We are talking about awesome things!

They don’t know who they are.  The Lord is testing them in obscurity.  It’s the only way that yields a vessel who can be trusted with great power.  They have been rejected for refusing to conform to the counterfeits.  God made them misfits.  Because He knew what was coming.

God not only knew the insanity of today was coming—He took steps to prepare a special relationship, that would produce special powers for His children. Think of that!

Jesus saw the future and uttered an explosive prayer: PRAY THE LORD OF THE HARVEST TO SEND WORKERS INTO THE HARVEST.  Notice He did not say ministers, or celebrities.  He said workers.  Many want the titles, attention, and rewards…but they don’t want to do the work.  A special core burns white hot with passion win lost souls and heal the sick.  They are hidden now but soon they will shine like the sun.

But there is another miracle awaiting this unique breed.  They will be allowed to see the world around them from the vantage point of the throne of God.  Ephesians 2: 6 says “and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus…”

What do you see from this vantage point?  You see that all the vile railings of our culture are not—in any way—a threat to the purposes of the almighty.  He knows the hollow arguments of the haters.  He is not moved by the mental monopoly of fake news and leftist social media.  He saw it all coming and prepared the response.

God is selecting people and working in them for unmatched power to attack evil.  Great visionary outreaches are coming and they will be funded supernaturally. The Lord of the universe is not poor.  He has pooled untold wealth to transfer it into the hands of trusted, proven, purified vessels whose only passion is to obey.

Finally, those who are deeply frustrated in their calling must learn the secret of the divine slingshot.

They are being hurt, wounded and brought to the brink of despair before their breakthrough.  In their pain and agony, they will cry out why—why am I being pulled away from my promise?  Why does each day take me further and further away from what You promised me?

Like a slingshot, God is deliberately building up the tension—the frustration—the fire to act…and at just the right moment, He will release you.   There is a great falling away coming and it will result in new voices and new anointing leading to the greatest harvest of souls in history.

 

Because you support Trump

Because I support Trump, they stopped helping us win souls.  Funds for winning souls pulled?  Because I stand for Trump?  Won’t get involved in a soul winning crusade because of Trump?  That’s an ugly truth.  In some cases, they have allowed their hatred of Trump to trump their love for lost souls.

We got nothing but support in Texas.   But, resistance from other places drained and distracted us, forcing Houston and San Antonio to be cancelled.

Some who promised help, and have helped for years, have stopped.   Others falsely accused me of talking about Trump all the time.  Did you know that only 5% of my blogs have featured Trump?  Most of my posts deal with spiritual warfare, sound doctrine, revival, and reports of our work.

Leaders have said they can’t be a part of rallies that are political.  This shows me they have not been to any of our outreaches.  In the tent, I rarely, if ever mention Trump.  Not because I am afraid, but because I am consumed by the message of Christ for lost souls and miracles for those who need healing.  In a tent full of hurting people there’s no time for anything else.

And by the way, shame on you if that is why you didn’t get involved.

Others claim youth are turned off by my message.  The notion that youth stay away because I support our President is totally false.  They are not staying away.  If fact, we have a crisis of opportunity.  Our youth are hungry for God.  What we do have is a critical shortage of workers.

There are thousands of millennials out there connecting with what I am saying. Here’s just one sample of emails I receive:

“Every word you speak always touches my soul and spirit in a way I cannot explain. I’m a millennial head over heels in love with Jesus and laying low like how you speak about. I don’t comment on these things, but I have to tell you that us young ones are the Joshua generation! We have been sick of our parents and whomever, sinning and lying and complaining and leading us away from the truth…from God…from Jesus. We’ve had enough, and we are here to serve the Lord in love and be nothing like our ancestors. The separation has begun. I look forward to every post you write!” -Love and prayers from fellow brothers and sisters in FL

Now here is a comment from a “Christian” with the mindset that opposes our soul winning.  He calls my support for Trump “the greatest blasphemy.”  He even issues his condemnation in the form of a prayer!  “And here before you, my Lord, are the ones who have engraved their names in testimony to their blasphemies; their turning away from and against defense of the meek, the powerless, the peaceful, those who love others of your flock regardless of their name or color or race or gender. Mine is not to judge; it is only to weep for them. For they follow a false prophet, and I am saddened they have been steered from your path and then evangelize it as if it was your gospel. It is the greatest of blasphemies.”-John

If these timid souls really cared about the poor and the defenseless, they join us in the inner city feeding and clothing the poor instead of pontificating from the bleachers.

We speak out because we understand why America must remain strong, free and under the rule of law.   This pseudo-pacifism—that would make a hippie blush—is what got in this mess in the first place.  It was the church’s silence that brought us to the brink.

So, I went to the Lord and He gave me Proverbs 20:3 “A man of honor withdraws his foot from strife.”  And that is exactly what I doing…I am withdrawing.   Because I am withdrawing from strife, I will not mention any names, so please don’t bother asking.  Because I am withdrawing you will never hear me talk about this again.  I am only telling you because people deserve to know what happened.

This cancellation is especially frustrating because there are many who do support us and would have stepped up instantly.  We just got side swiped on this one.  I take much of the responsibility for failing to see the trap sooner.  The Holy Spirit showed me my failings in this situation.  I should never have allowed this to happen.

-The most important thing is that He is training us for power, wisdom, discernment, and  love to move to a new level of freedom to reach masses of youth and not be held back. 

– We will also not back down.  We will continue to warn America and the church about the demonic agenda of the left.  But never at the expense of preaching the Gospel!

Because we are innocent, God will provide abundantly.  We have learned a big lesson and the enemy will pay for what he has done. 

This is just a speed bump.  Momentum is strong at Mario Murillo Ministries.  We have cities lined up for tent crusades.  And we are going back to the two we missed.  This was a gigantic fluke I am certain will never happen again.

 

 

SATAN ATTACKED US

The History of Mario Murillo Ministries is the story of tenacity and grit in the face of impossibilities.  We have preached during campus riots.  We have faced bomb threats.  We have had cults show up to disrupt our gatherings.  No matter what, we have gone ahead, and finished what we started.
Earlier this year, you may remember, even with excruciating pain in my spine, I went ahead and preached 6 nights in our tent in the inner city of Las Vegas.  I simply would not quit.
Anyone who knows me, knows I do not quit.  If there is an event where souls are going to be reached and there is adversity I will not cancel.  That is why I am shocked at myself at what I am about to tell you: we must postpone our tent crusades in Houston and in San Antonio.   And, it makes me angry, with divine anger to cancel.  These were two amazing opportunities.  It is killing me to delay them.
1 Thessalonians 2:18 says, “Therefore we wanted to come to you—even I, Paul, time and again—but Satan hindered us.”  There it is!  Satan hindered us.   Notice that Paul did not tell the Thessalonians what Satan had done to hinder them.  He must have had his reasons.
Like Paul, I cannot tell my reasons at this time either.  I know that when the time is right I will tell you.
However, this attack should come as no surprise to anyone who is watching the flood of mob mentality, the deep division, hatred, betrayal, and lukewarm faith that are rampant across America.
More than anything, I need you to believe me…we would never make a decision like this lightly.  It is critical because we are going to be criticized for cancelling.  Again, I quote Paul the Apostle in the Message Bible translation:
Paul said, “Confident of your welcome, I had originally planned two great visits with you—coming by on my way to Macedonia province, and then again on my return trip. Then we could have had a bon-voyage party as you sent me off to Judea. That was the plan.  Are you now going to accuse me of being flip with my promises because it didn’t work out? Do you think I talk out of both sides of my mouth—a glib yes one moment, a glib no the next? Well, you’re wrong. I try to be as true to my word as God is to his. Our word to you wasn’t a careless yes canceled by an indifferent no.” 2 Corinthians 1:15-19 MSG
The tent, chairs and mountains of equipment were ready.  The trucks were ready. The sites were locked in.  Everything was in place.  We invested thousands of dollars.  We were moving an army to Houston and San Antonio.  Then this crisis struck.
What breaks my heart, is not just the souls we could have reached, but the amazing core of volunteers that worked so hard to help us.  I commend you all for demonstrating the real love of Jesus.  Please don’t give up!
This is not over!  We will see these outreaches.  The devil will pay—brutally pay for this attack.  God bless you for hanging in there with me.  As soon as I can, I will tell you more.  Until then I need you to storm heaven in prayer for us.

I AM EXCITED FOR MANY REASONS

The doctor told me I had one of the worst disk injuries he had ever seen.  This was my 4th doctor.  I survived 5 months of excruciating pain—but the worst was yet to come.  He told me I needed surgery fast.  But, choosing the best neurosurgeon meant I had to wait.  Waiting in pain—not knowing how long you’ll wait—is a hard thing.

During that season, I could not understand what was happening to me.  Our tent crusades were shut down.  I wondered if I would ever be able to stand again.

We get an appointment.  Even though the neurosurgeon had all my X-rays, his office ordered me to rush and get a new set 1 day before my appointment.  We had no idea how important that was.

We finally see him.  He says, “I compared your new and old X-rays.  Mario, this is a miracle.  If you had come in 4 weeks ago, I would have had to operate. It means going in through your stomach, leaving an 8-inch scar on your abdomen.  Even then, there was no promise you’d get better, and you’d face a year of rehab.  But something changed and now all you need is physical therapy.”  God makes us wait for good reasons.

I am excited because my injury even without surgery should take a year to recover.  Instead I am restored and, on a soul-winning vendetta.

Satan attacked me to stop our tent crusades.  He was frustrating an urgent project.  We have been building an industry around our tent.  We have amassed equipment, soldiers, and systems for a mighty evangelistic weapon.  One of our most important developments is our teamwork with Inner City Action and Frank Saldana. 

We developed an explosive training program called FIREPOWER.  This training is going to give us a national army.

Last year, it took several months prepare to do just one Living Proof Tent Crusade.  Now all the working parts are in place.  The machine is humming!

I am excited because we are going to do three crusades before Thanksgiving!  Here are the details:  

Living Proof Reno

 

 Living Proof Houston TX

 

 Living Proof San Antonio TX

My injury was one of the greatest tests of my life.  Strange as it may seem, the Lord visited me every night and poured in revelation and insights to the future of America.  He told me I would see unprecedented miracles—radical healings.  He told me He would pour out His Spirit on the inner cities and send forth a shock army—made up of people who were thrown out like garbage.

He warned me to expect revival in small churches among broken-hearted pastors.  He told me He was going to start a movement to break the political curse on America.

Yeah, I am excited…how could I not be!  -Mario Murillo

P.S. I know this sounds strange, but you need to pray about being in Reno for our Living Proof Crusade there.  Every atom of my being resonates with expectancy for this one event.  If you know anyone in need of a miracle—do what you must to get them under the tent!  To know more call us at 775 238 3473 or click here  mariomurillo.org  MM

Coming this Sunday

 

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.   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.

MARIO MURILLO THIS SUNDAY

AT NEW LIFE CHURCH

10:30 AM 6 PM 10800 HAMMERLY BLVD,

HOUSTON TX 77043 CALL 713 932 1479

Mario 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.

THE LAZARUS GENERATION

God has called me to build an army out the forgotten souls in America’s inner cities.  Up from graves in America’s forgotten communities, they will rise to become Satan’s worst nightmare.  I can prove it! 
Today’s victims will be tomorrow’s treasure.  The people no church wants will become the people every church wants.
Today they stick needles in their arms—tomorrow, they will be filled with the Holy Ghost, and the hand of God extended.  Today, they sell their bodies in grinding despair—tomorrow they will be shining temples of God.  Today, they scavenge dumpsters for food—tomorrow they will walk in dignity, boldness and prosperity.  Society’s rejects are about to become royalty.
They will turn the heart of many Americans back to God.  Their testimony will expose the lie of secular progressivism.  The leftist media will have no weapon against them. 
The Lazarus Generation cannot be bought off, seduced away, or distracted from their appointed goal. 
Yesterday, the powers of darkness panicked over news out of Reno Nevada.  A plan that was hidden in the heart of God—a powerful weapon that was forged before the foundation of the earth—came into existence.

Because of this, you will now see awe-inspiring soul winning events.  The poor are going to get food, shelter, clothing—and yes—jobs.  Gang members, addicts and the homeless will be drawn in record numbers to atmospheres of open heaven right where they live.
The first rumblings of this massive lightning storm, came in Modesto last week.  Star of David Ministries hosted Mario Murillo Ministries and Frank Saldana of Inner City Action to do a tent meeting in the hood. 

Pastor Frank & Kim Saldana

Since 1996, Pastor Frank And Kim Saldana have served on a full-time basis. Having began their ministry work in Manteca, CA, the impact of their love for people has touched thousands over the past 20 years of service in the community.

Pastor Frank & Kim have been married over 20 years. They founded Inner City Action Inc to meet the needs of those that are often, ignored, neglected and forgotten. They are passionate about bringing awareness, education and change. They are dedicated to reaching and restoring our struggling communities.

We all had the strange and wonderful sense that this was a rehearsal for something gigantic.  The gifts of MMM and Inner City Action blended effortlessly.  The gaping holes in our outreach were filled dramatically by their expertise.  It was simply meant to be.

MMM received an amazing gift from Rick Wiles and TRUNEWS.  Rick donated a brand-new tent and 1,000 luxury folding chairs—he even paid for 2 semi-trucks to haul it from Vero Beach to Reno. 

Here we sat with a huge gift we did not know how to use.  Frank and Inner-City Impact have a tent crew!  The chairs were stuffed into a storage area that wiped out our storage.  Frank has a 20,000-square foot warehouse!   You can see where this is all heading.
So, we met in Reno to formalize the obvious.  We needed to team up, combine forces and touch cities across America.  We will provide a Living Proof Crusade.  They will provide the mechanics of transporting the tent, set up and take down.   We will recruit and train soul winners to join us in each city.  They will bring trained workers to go door to door giving the poor food, and many other basic needs.  
After we nailed down 8 Cities for the next 12 months, Frank and his crew loaded our new tent and chairs and took them to Stockton. 
Never, and I mean never have I seen a vision whose inevitable outcome is revival—national revival. 
Both ministries remain independent ministries with unique callings but for these tent invasions we will unite hearts, and pool our gifts, talents and resources to have an overwhelming impact on many cities.
I have no doubt that days of massive harvest, towering signs and wonders, and revival are just ahead.  Stay tuned we are about to announce Merced, and Fresno California!

I HAVE NOT SEEN THIS SINCE THE JESUS MOVEMENT

Not since the Jesus Movement in the 1970’s, have young people come to Christ like this.  The pictures prove we kept our promise to go and win gang members, addicts, college and high school students to Christ.  You will also see we kept our promise to go and recruit young soldiers to go into the harvest.

What we saw was a towering miracle—a miracle made even more amazing when you consider it happened during the worst attacks we have ever known.

In fact, in April, we despaired to keep our promise to our partners.  The evil one revolted against us—it was ferocious.   It was shocking not only for its intensity, but also because it came from the most unlikely source:  At the last minute, a coalition of pastors boycotted me because I supported Donald Trump for president.

My personal credo is, you must be stronger than your excuses.  We shook it off, and moved forward.  We saw amazing things happen in the next cities.

When leaders were open, putting petty differences aside, there was an abundance of conversions.  Whenever a tent, auditorium or a church building was dedicated to outreach, the lost freely turned to Jesus.

Bakersfield California: We bring Living Proof to a war-torn city.  It is here that we face the fiercest battle we have ever known.  Gangs don’t want us to take away their drug customers and churches are divided against each other.  Yet, somehow God blasted through and poured out His Spirit.  The people were ready for signs and wonders and our mighty God did not disappoint.  Few times in 50 years of ministry have I felt such intense power.

Stunning healing of a woman:  Without asking, I broke out in Spanish and began to tell her the story of the agony in her body.  Her look of excitement and recognition was undeniable.  No one could say they were not watching a miracle.  Arthritis, and a host of other maladies had turned her right side and legs into a war zone of pain.  She freely confirmed the word to be accurate.  Then the word became a healing miracle.  She charged across the front of the building demonstrating that all her excruciating pain was gone.

Bethel Church Redding:  I stood before thousands of young students at the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry—students on fire and yearning to be used of God—students who are teachable.  God poured out His Spirit on them after they heard my impassioned cry for healing miracles to happen where they matter—in the mainstream of American youth culture.

Manteca California: A miracle, pure and simple, hits a young lady.  I love it when the Holy Spirit’s word of knowledge is so clear, piercing and detailed that people no longer see the man speaking—only God. By the Spirit, the story of her life unfolded.  The precise illnesses of her body and the childhood trauma that caused them all was revealed.  Her total healing rocks the room.

The overwhelming majority who come forward are young men.  This is beyond good news—this is the growing trend in our crusades.  He is pouring out His Spirit on our daughters…and our sons!  Never have I seen conviction grip youth like this.  I twas as if they wanted me to shut up and let them come to Christ.

San Bernardino: I stood to preach. Suddenly, I was commanded to declare a word of healing before I could preach.  Why did my message begin this way?  Earlier that day I was with my spiritual father, Ralph Wilkerson.  He gave me a corrective and inspiring word from the Lord.  “Don’t preach to get miracles Mario.  Stand there and let God do miracles.  Let the miracles be first so the people will know God is in the room.”

Jesus ordered me—an unworthy vessel—to describe a severe medical condition in a young woman on the right side of this capacity crowd.  Her healing ignited others to reach out for miracles.   The awesome thing about a desperate crowd is they have no pride about taking hold of the hem of His garment.

I was free to preach the Gospel.  What did I preach?  I preached the very message you and I have been waiting to give the youth of America.  Here were the words I have longed to say to the very audience I have longed to reach.

These pictures do not do justice to the next moment.  Young souls came from all over the room.  They came quickly, they came forcefully, they came for nothing less than Jesus.   They came by the hundreds.  They dispelled every lie that Satan is saying through the media about our children.

Houston:  Our World Convention is a baptism of Holy Fire on willing soldiers who came from all over the nation to help us win souls.

San Francisco:  COME FORWARD ONLY IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT GIVING YOUR LIFE TO JESUS.”It was my honor to partner with Chris Burns and the amazing army that formed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love in Golden Gate Park.  THE SOUND was an outreach of many powerful worship artists, dynamic speakers, and a committed core linked hearts to bless the city.  But one thing that happened has wide implications to all believers.Holy Ghost boldness overtook me.  I preached an unvarnished soul-winning message.  I refused to employ verbal gymnastics to appeal to a sophisticated culture.

Why—if this place is so hard—did so many respond, so immediately, to a direct gospel appeal?  Nothing was sugar-coated.  It was no credit to oratory.  It was a simple case of hungry and hurting souls reaching out to Jesus—because He was offered to them.

Time and time again, I’ve warned the American church…there is a great harvest in our nation, even in San Francisco.  And…if there is a harvest in San Francisco, how much more in the rest of America?

Warrior-fest with Perry Stone: 3,000 young people were waiting for me in Cleveland Tennessee.  My message was clear: Someone in this Room is going to Change the World.   Perry is doing a historic work.  I have never seen fire and worship come out of young people like I did here.

We kept our promise and the best is yet to come.  We are laying the ground work today for outreaches in Toledo Ohio, Flint Michigan, and Ontario California.

I have a Plan

 

I want to explain a coming disaster and the plan God has given me to face it and reverse its damage for the glory of Christ.

I have a plan

By Mario Murillo

Many people have a dream.  I have a plan.   A plan is more powerful than a dream because a plan turns a dream into reality.  You cannot overstate the importance of planning.  If you do not have a plan, someone else’s plan will control you.

Planning pulls the future into the present.  It gives you advance power over trouble that is heading your way.

The hardest part of planning is to let go of things that worked 5 years ago—no matter how nostalgic a method may be, you better know when the Holy Spirit says to let it go.

february-2016-cover-art-copy

Maintaining intimacy with God is life and death to a ministry.  You can put your ministry on cruise control and drift out of range of God’s voice.  Churches have folded and ministries have closed because they were caught without a plan and failed to adapt.

A God plan is a weapon against approaching danger.  Noah did not build the ark while it was raining.  Only God can give us the right plan.  I believe He has.  God gave me an eye to see past the camouflage and warned me of impending danger.

I want to explain a coming disaster and the plan God has given me to face it and reverse its damage for the glory of Christ.

The coming disaster:  Obama did many bad things to America.  He stagnated our economy.  His style of leading from behind fomented war and instability in the world.  His sympathy for Islam created barriers to fighting terrorism.  But the worst thing he did was to our children.

-The number of youth who claim to be atheists doubled in the 8 years he was in office.

-The entire social justice warrior snowflake agenda came on his watch.  Colleges and universities declared war on free speech and opposing views.  They saw racism and sexism in everything (even peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were called racist).  Students began to feel micro-aggressions from anything that challenged their beliefs.

-He framed Islam—which executes women and gays—as less oppressive than the teachings of Jesus and millions of our youth bought the lie.  He created a mindset of hypocrisy and contradiction.

-He made government god.  He grew government with a stolen credit card and laid a $20 trillion debt on the backs of our children.

He took away their hope and cut them off from the source of life.  Check out what our children are saying now:

42% said they will never own a house or have a meaningful job.

34% said they will have a lower standard of living than their parents

58% say that asking for help will not solve their problems.

44% do not know what to believe.

Young America’s Foundation released its annual Youth Misery Index and found it at a record high. “Over the course of Obama’s presidency, the YMI has spiked an alarming 29.9 points, an increase of 36 percent.”

This heart-wrenching disaster embodies the cry of a whole generation:  12-year-old Katelyn Nicole Davis from Cedartown, Georgia used Facebook Live on December 30th to live stream her suicide.  As she hanged herself in her front yard, the video played for an entire 20 minutes.

I have a plan to prevent these tragedies.  It is a plan that deserves a chance because it will work. 

Here’s the plan: 

Appoint regional directors who will oversee ongoing soul-winning and follow-up.  This will multiply our outreach tenfold.  They will sustain relationships with local pastors and leaders, not only to retain our results, but to prepare for our return to these cities.

-Train and release an army to the front lines: We need workers who can pray for the sick in the streets—not just in auditoriums.  These workers are beyond essential because they will bring in lost souls to our events.  The great mistake today is to assume if you advertise, people will show up.  Imagine 10,000 young people trained to go out and bring back the harvest!

Take our internet media platform to the next level.  Millions have read our blog and looked at our videos.  This is not nearly enough.  We must enhance our skills, technology and content for a new generation.

-Choose strategic sites for our events.  We must be near the problem.  We must be in a venue that is large enough to make an impact outside church walls.  We must face reality: most Christian events draw only Christians.  If we want the unchurched to come to our meetings we must be in halls that will attract them.  Even though this triples our cost, it must be done or we will only preach to ourselves.

1

-Open a college in Reno for the next generation of American Evangelists.  We dare not hoard 50 years of front line experience.  Too many of our Christian colleges are teaching theories untested in true warfare.  We must help shape the soul winners of tomorrow.

How do we know this plan will work?  The most important way to judge if a plan will work is to look at the track record of the planner.  Since our earliest breakthroughs in the radical campus at Berkeley, we have known how to invade the impossible.  We know how to hire the best—give people the best training—adapt to current trends of the youth culture—use a fresh approach to share a timeless message—and release signs and wonders in the mainstream of the youth culture.

God said, “Choose 10 cities. Invest $1 million and you will start a movement—a national movement.”  Where will I get a million dollars?  The good news is that it is in the pockets and the bank accounts of those who receive this letter.  The miracle is in releasing it.  The miracle is in the Holy Spirit’s power to turn your good intentions into action.

This blog has never been about fundraising.  It has been offered freely as a tool to inform and ignite action for the cause of Christ in America.  Most of all, I ask for your prayers in this epic outreach that Jesus is forging through us.  Nevertheless, your gifts of love are the reason this mission is possible.  Thank you for being a part of this harvest.

Here is the one thing that will make all the difference in the world: First time givers!  I am calling on you to donate to MMM if you have never done it before.   No matter what, your gift will make a difference—it will make all the difference!

Of course, we need our loyal supporters to give and I am profoundly grateful to all of you.  But the fact is thousands read this letter are on the sidelines…but if they get in the battle it will turn the tide of the war.  I am not asking you for a million dollars (although, it would be wonderful to receive such a gift). I am asking for you to listen to your heart and invest in our children and grandchildren.

Many of you have seen revivals or had the honor of growing up in a powerful church.  Shouldn’t the next generation get to see revival?  I am not begging for money… I am begging for souls.  This is all about your children and your grandchildren.  Satan has pulled out all the stops to destroy them.  Shouldn’t we open our hearts and our pocketbooks to save them?  I have a plan—it will work—it deserves a chance—help me put it into action.

A GREAT MAN OF GOD HAS GONE TO HEAVEN

 

A GREAT MAN OF GOD HAS GONE TO HEAVEN

By Mario Murillo

I have just experienced a devastating personal loss.  I have been crying a lot and I am in mourning.  I am overcome with a towering sense of sadness.

Some have tried to tell me that I shouldn’t feel loss.  It has become politically incorrect to mourn the loss of loved ones.  Recently, a famous preacher said this at a funeral, “If you really have faith, you will not feel any sadness at all.”

However, Acts 8:2 says, “And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.”  That is what devout men do.  They grieve over loss.

Jesus mourned at Lazarus’ grave. “And He said, ‘Where have you laid him?’ They said to Him, ‘Lord, come and see.’ Jesus wept.  Then the Jews said, ‘See how He loved him!’”-John 11:34-36.

These verses overflow with meaning for those who lose loved ones.  Here was the creator of faith, weeping.  How can it be unbelief if Jesus mourned?

Moreover, He was about to raise Lazarus from the dead, so why weep?   The Jews who were watching understood why.  He wept because He loved Lazarus.  That is why I am weeping. I loved my friend Dusty Kemp.

You never heard of Dusty Kemp?  Well then, I am about to enrich your life.  Dusty abruptly went to heaven on Sunday night, December 11th.  A week before that, I stood in his pulpit and called him the best kept secret in America.  It is high time for that secret to get out.

When he taught the Bible, it came alive.  He parked his soul in the Gospels and never ceased to amaze the seeker and satisfy the hungry.  You always got light and a fresh angle to the Word of God.

Repeatedly, the question crashed in my soul, “How could such a mighty man die?”  The Holy Spirit took me to these verses: 2 Kings 13:14, “Elisha had become sick with the illness of which he would die.”  Verse 21: “So it was, as they were burying a man, that suddenly they spied a band of raiders; and they put the man in the tomb of Elisha; and when the man was let down and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived and stood on his feet.”

What can kill a man whose bones raise the dead?  The answer is a broken heart.  Elisha was banned from prophesying for almost 40 years.  The counsel of God that burned within him used him up because it was rejected.

Dusty preached against the grain in a religious culture that valued size and fame.  He did it to his own hurt.  It shortened his life.

Dusty was a contradiction that increased his pain.  He loved people and didn’t want to lose anyone.  He also loved truth. At great personal cost, he would do what was right. 

He would constantly analyze things to death to be sure he was doing the right thing. This also shortened his life.  It was a constant source of frustration to me. I begged him more times than I can count  to stop doing this.

He was not a professional pastor.  He winged it with a singular desperation to do what he believed was right.

He sacrificed himself in his humor.  He could laugh at himself better than anyone I ever knew.

He tried to seem tough, but he was the quintessential softie.  Here is the last text we shared: Me- “I am in your office barking orders so your staff feels at home.”  Dusty-“Awesome! Thank you. Fire someone.”  You see, there it is…he is talking big about something he could never do without great inner anguish.

He was hard on himself but forgiving to others.  If there was a question about who was right, he would find a way to take the blame.

Did Dusty Kemp accomplish a lot with his life?  He would say no.  But he accomplished more that we could ever imagine.  You may not see it at first because our mega-church values only reward those who build empires.

dusty-shotHere’s the thing: the goal is not to engrave your name on monuments, grand buildings or sprawling campuses.  You are supposed to engrave your name on the hearts of people.  A man of God’s legacy is in the souls who were transformed, the minds that reverberate with your teachings and the stories people share about you.  By this measure my friend Dusty was a spectacular success.

That is why New Life Church will continue to thrive.  Mary Kemp will be graced with special power.  The church’s wonderful ministries will continue to excel.  I can’t wait to be a part of it.

Dusty Kemp was not just my friend.  He was a great man, a wonderful intellect, a great soul of matchless courage, one of the great men of the earth—and yet we have no right to bow down to his memory simply because he was great. Great orators, great soldiers and great lawyers often use their gifts for selfish reasons. We pay a tribute of love and respect to Dusty Kemp because he used his matchless power for the good of man and for the Glory of Christ.
