THE MOMENT I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR IS HERE.

In 7 days, we open the most strategic crusade in our history. I have been waiting with unbearable expectation for this event. When the tent goes up next Saturday there’s no turning back.

We are challenging the forces of darkness by staging–not a concert, prayer or worship gathering–but a full blown city wide soul winning miracle crusade inside a tent. Our intention is to conduct it with wisdom but without compromise.

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

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

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

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

I told our team and partners, we will not relent. We will reload. As soon as the ban lifts we will win more souls than ever. We are going to expand our outreach to the Highway 99 Corridor. Every aspect of our outreach will intensify.

The only difference is that we are not waiting for Sacramento to tell us when the ban is lifted. We can’t wait. We won’t wait. Here’s why:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

An army of trained and anointed workers has been praying for thousands of people in neighborhoods, parks, and anywhere where groups gather inn Fresno. They carry the message of hope so gravely needed in this hour. The acute loneliness, despair, and addiction is being confronted and healed in Jesus’ name!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

WHAT HER DEATH MEANS TO THE ELECTION

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead. I will neither vilify her nor praise her. My task is to show you the impact her death will have on the election. And trust me. Her departure is a game changer.

The nation will mourn briefly. Accolades will pour in from the left and the right. We will enjoy a brief respite from the war on the streets and in government. Very brief. Then something fierce will come our way. Well, here it is, by the numbers.

 

1. The short peace is but the eye of the storm. Riots, looting and demonstrations will increase. You will hear the most insane railings by protesters you have heard yet. You will hear vile accusations against Republicans, conservatives and Christians.

The unhinged voices of many like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Nancy Pelosi, and Maxine Waters will billow like smoke from a fire at a tire factory. The thought of another conservative Justice on the bench will cause a panic that will soon foment rage and call for a coup against the President and Senate. Their fury will be directed at one thing: preventing Trump from selecting another Supreme Court Justice to replace Ginsburg. They will scream and declare it to be the end of the world.

2. The election is now all about the Supreme Court. The economy is no longer the main issue. Religious freedom and Second Amendment controversy moves to the back-burner. The opportunity to put multiple justices on the bench of the highest court in Trump’s second term will fire up the Trump base as nothing has so far. Enthusiasm for Trump will reach unprecedented heights.

But so will the fervor of the opposition. Even Biden may show a pulse. Prepare for filth, vileness, and bald-faced lies on a scale unknown in America—perhaps in the history of the world!

Our streets will be filled with angry mobs. The airwaves will ooze sludge against Trump. Obscenities, will abound, red-faced commentators will scream their disgust at Trump, and they will shame anyone who supports him.

THIS JUST IN: AT 10:10 AM PST, THE FIRST THREAT DELIVERED BY LEFTIST RADICAL ISLAMIST AND CNN HOST: “If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f***ing thing down,” former CNN host Reza Aslan wrote on Twitter. “Over our dead bodies. Literally.”

Mitch McConnell has already lit the fuse for a political Armageddon over who will succeed Ginsburg, The Senate majority leader indicated that the vote will go ahead quickly. He implied that Trump’s nominee for the vacant position would be put to the vote before the election in November.

Therefore, the Democrats will have a complete meltdown. Look at how they behaved during Kavanagh’s confirmation. What will they be like in this current toxic campaign?

3. The Election could be postponed because of the chaos and rage Democrats will rain down on America. We already have a horrendous mail-in ballot issue in this election. It is a system run by people favoring Biden. The Postal Workers Union who will handle the mail have endorsed Biden. Democrats believe the fix is in.

If you know Donald Trump then you know he will have none of it. The entire voting process could be mired in lawsuits. We may not know who is President until next year.

What does this all mean? Something devastating and destructive? Actually, I feel just the opposite. The corrupt, criminal enterprise that is the Democrat Party and the Left needs to reach critical mass, and America needs to witness the destructive and evil crescendo.

But my final hope is in the chorus of prayer that is rising to heaven from all over our nation. Repentance, even from a remnant, avails much. We must bathe the next 46 days before the election in prayer. And vote for Trump!

I do not wish either looting, fires, or violent mobs on anyone. I despise their behavior. But perhaps when the behavior of these thugs—the thugs who are both out on the street as well as in the halls of power—is so blatant that the fake news can no longer hide it, America will conclude once and for all that the Democrat Party is utterly repugnant and unredeemable.

Let God arise, and His enemies be scattered!

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

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

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

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

WE MUST SPEAK NOW OR FOREVER HOLD OUR PEACE

This is the clearest warning God has ever given me. God is emphatically telling the American Church, “Speak now, or forever hold your peace.” Whatever we are going to say, whatever we are going to do, whatever action we are going to take to protect our rights as Christians and Americans, we must do now.

Doubt my words at your own peril. Churches are about be closed forever. People of faith will soon be marginalized, both socially and economically.  What we are talking about here is nothing short of your children’s and your grandchildren’s future. They will live in a world where they will be targeted for the faith you have given them. And the worst part is: you will not be here to protect them when they endure the worst of it.

Listen closely—the threat I am describing is not years away, it is not even months away, it is days away. Yes, absolutely, we are days away from the new excuse the Democrats are preparing to use to wipe out both the First and Second Amendments to the Constitution.

Here is what has happened to justify the urgency of my writing. Satan has been working on this masterstroke of tyranny for years. The tapestry of lies he has woven is the greatest manipulation of truth in all of history. It transforms light into darkness, and darkness into light. It changes hatred into love, and love into hatred. It makes racism equality and equality racism.  They have left few, if any, words that carry their original meanings.

The web of evil that has fallen over all of America is clearly described in Isaiah 59:4-8:

“No one calls for justice,
Nor does any plead for truth.
They trust in empty words and speak lies;
They conceive evil and bring forth iniquity.
They hatch vipers’ eggs and weave the spider’s web;
He who eats of their eggs dies,
And from that which is crushed, a viper breaks out.

Their webs will not become garments,
Nor will they cover themselves with their works;
Their works are works of iniquity,
And the act of violence is in their hands.
Their feet run to evil,
And they make haste to shed innocent blood;
Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity;
Wasting and destruction are in their paths.
The way of peace they have not known,
And there is no justice in their ways;
They have made themselves crooked paths;
Whoever takes that way shall not know peace.”

That passage describes exactly what is happening, from our lowest back alleys, to our highest offices of power.

And the following verses (14-15) tell us what is coming next.

“Justice is turned back,
And righteousness stands afar off;
For truth is fallen in the street,
And equity cannot enter.
So truth fails,
And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.”

The moment when you will make yourself a prey for Marxist wolves, is even now at the door.

I am sick to death with those who refuse to call the church to action. Let me put it plainly. You have two choices: either vote for Trump, or make a plan to move your family to safety. I am also sick of those pastors who refuse to come to this obvious conclusion.

When you hear them screaming, “Mario Murillo is an extremist!” remember that we got to this point of desperation because of the lukewarm voices who refused to admit the approach of danger.

-Remember when California told us not to use our Bibles? Pastors did not galvanize a resistance to stop it.

-Remember when marriage was destroyed? Again, there was no national firewall of righteous leaders to intervene.

-Then they told us to close our churches, even as they condoned mass protests that led to violence and helped spread the virus. Again, there was no unanimous action from American church leaders.

-Then they told us that we cannot sing. This was a test balloon to see how fast they can force the church underground.

So, what is next? Will they extend the church-gathering-ban indefinitely? Will they move on to dictating not only when we can meet, when we can sing, but will they also dictate what we can say? Will we finally find ourselves ordered to read a script that will be, in effect, a repudiation of our faith in Christ?

Remember, we are here because of an incurably wrong-headed sense of political correctness. Well, my brothers and sisters, that season is over. The gloves must come off. The righteous must rise up with a single roar—a noise that is unified and unending must rise from the church.

For years we have been told to just sit back and let it happen. We were told that it was ‘all in God’s hands,’ even as we ignored God’s Words. God has chosen to honor prayer. God rewards those who seek to stand in the gap against national evil. Borrowing one last verse from Isaiah, which tells us our great predicament: “Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor…” (Isaiah 59:15,16). God is shocked, and rightly so, that the American church is still wandering, wavering and weakening in the face of an invading enemy.

And yet, there is great hope because God’s army is rising and its numbers are growing at this very hour. Notable Christian leaders are no longer worried about protecting their reputations, but are taking up a new anointing—a nation-saving anointing!

With every atom of my being, I am exhorting you to take action. To those who have no stomach for war, and are oblivious of the fact that we are already at war, please spare me your empty excuses.

The American church must rise up now. We are about to be bound and gagged by a rogue government. Whatever confidence you have in my ministry—whatever level of trust I have earned—must now be put on the line.

Join us in this great struggle! Join a cause so noble and right that it is beyond belief that every Christian in America is not involved. This is the hour. You will never pass this way again.

Speak now, church, or forever hold your peace!

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

DEMONstrations

In Portland, Oregon, demonstrators barricaded a police station with twenty people inside, and then set it on fire. They were trying to burn alive those who were inside. They called it a Black Lives Matter protest. Even the fuzzy uber-leftist mayor of Portland finally conceded that this was attempted murder.

Demons now drive the protests on the streets of Democrat controlled cities. We no longer have demonstrations—we have DEMONstrations. You are seeing devils operating, and openly manifesting.

How far from ‘black lives mattering’ is this? Ask the black policeman who was repeatedly called a N_ _ _ _ by white raging BLM protestors. The same officer was trying to reason with a young black woman, when a white girl came up and ordered her away, saying, “You are not allowed to talk to the cops.”

If this is black liberation why are white Marxists ordering black people around? Why aren’t black people allowed to talk to each other? Wait, what?! White BLM people screaming racial slurs at black people? The only explanation is demons. Demons that don’t care about issues. Demons have utterly consumed a movement that has been utterly hijacked, and is doing nothing but rioting and spewing racial hatred.

The veil between the natural and supernatural has been torn. Demonic activity has been unshackled. Out of the bowels of hell has come a cursed compound that is a mixture of white guilt and black fear. It was white guilt that drove corporations, from Coca Cola to media moguls like Disney and ESPN, to repeat “Black Lives Matter” over and over like trained parrots. Black fear drove innocent people of color to surrender to the devilish leadership of BLM.

This mass casting off of all morals and this degeneration is described in detail in the Bible. 2 Timothy 3:1-5, “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!”

Marxists and Antifa terrorists spew the venom described in these verses on our children turning them into raging cyborgs without a cause or a conscience. The light of decency has been snuffed out in these rioters. They are no longer constrained by conscience. They are angry, bloodthirsty brigands who care not who they destroy or why they destroy.

The Bible tells us about the demoniac among the tombs whose name was ‘legion.’ A more pitiful person does not exist anywhere in literature. It says this man “had his dwelling among the tombs; and no one could bind him, not even with chains, because he had often been bound with shackles and chains. And the chains had been pulled apart by him, and the shackles broken in pieces; neither could anyone tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying out and cutting himself with stones” (Mark 5:3-5).

This is where these youth are headed.  The spirits that entered them under the cloak of high ideals are now driving their savage impulses and ultimately, to cause them to debase themselves. But, nevertheless, there is something hopeful: this mass DEMONstration has a towering weakness. Its master, the devil, always overplays his hand. To drive so many young hearts, so quickly, to such depths of rage and debauchery, carries a colossal risk. The People’s Park riots in Berkeley also known as Bloody Thursday May 30th 1969, featured the same disgorging of devils for a “worthy cause.” But out of this and many other such riots in California, came the Jesus Movement.

The vacuum of decency creates a desperation. Soon, even the most avid protestor—feeling how rapidly they are descending into degradation—cries out for God. I believe this, because I saw it in Berkeley!

But there is one particular devil that I dread.  Not the one driving the demonstrators to violence—but the one driving the church to silence. “Having a form of godliness, but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” (Verse 5)

 

If a revival strikes, you do not want to be vaccinated against it by dead religion! When the supernatural harvest comes, you do not want to be hibernating with the hypocrites.

And finally, if you talk about devils, remember what happened to the demoniac in the country of the Gadarenes: “When he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshiped Him. And he cried out with a loud voice and said, “What have I to do with You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God that You do not torment me” (Mark 5:6-7).

As soon as Jesus stepped out of the boat, the shock wave of His sandal touching the shore reverberated for miles, until it shook the demoniac and he ran to Jesus—such is our Lord’s dominating power! Thousands of devils were instantly evicted and a hopeless case became a total miracle. It can also happen to a generation!

Only God knows how long the madness on our streets will last, or how far their madness will go. We must not cave-in, either to fear or apathy. This is indeed a dangerous moment for America and yet embedded in that danger is an epic opportunity for revival, after the despair sets in. For you, as a child of God, your greatest danger lies in allowing the dead Christians to talk you into missing your destiny.

YOU MUST SPEAK NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE

This is the clearest warning God has ever given me. God is emphatically telling the American Church, “Speak now, or forever hold your peace.” Whatever we are going to say, whatever we are going to do, whatever action we are going to take to protect our rights as Christians and Americans, we must do now.

Doubt my words at your own peril. Churches are about be closed forever. People of faith will soon be marginalized, both socially and economically.  What we are talking about here is nothing short of your children’s and your grandchildren’s future. They will live in a world where they will be targeted for the faith you have given them. And the worst part is: you will not be here to protect them when they endure the worst of it.

Listen closely—the threat I am describing is not years away, it is not even months away, it is days away. Yes, absolutely, we are days away from the new excuse the Democrats are preparing to use to wipe out both the First and Second Amendments to the Constitution.

Here is what has happened to justify the urgency of my writing. Satan has been working on this masterstroke of tyranny for years. The tapestry of lies he has woven is the greatest manipulation of truth in all of history. It transforms light into darkness, and darkness into light. It changes hatred into love, and love into hatred. It makes racism equality and equality racism.  They have left few, if any, words that carry their original meanings.

The web of evil that has fallen over all of America is clearly described in Isaiah 59:4-8:

“No one calls for justice,
Nor does any plead for truth.
They trust in empty words and speak lies;
They conceive evil and bring forth iniquity.
They hatch vipers’ eggs and weave the spider’s web;
He who eats of their eggs dies,
And from that which is crushed, a viper breaks out.

Their webs will not become garments,
Nor will they cover themselves with their works;
Their works are works of iniquity,
And the act of violence is in their hands.
Their feet run to evil,
And they make haste to shed innocent blood;
Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity;
Wasting and destruction are in their paths.
The way of peace they have not known,
And there is no justice in their ways;
They have made themselves crooked paths;
Whoever takes that way shall not know peace.”

That passage describes exactly what is happening, from our lowest back alleys, to our highest offices of power.

And the following verses (14-15) tell us what is coming next.

“Justice is turned back,
And righteousness stands afar off;
For truth is fallen in the street,
And equity cannot enter.
So truth fails,
And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.”

The moment when you will make yourself a prey for Marxist wolves, is even now at the door.

I am sick to death with those who refuse to call the church to action. Let me put it plainly. You have two choices: either vote for Trump, or make a plan to move your family to safety. I am also sick of those pastors who refuse to come to this obvious conclusion.

When you hear them screaming, “Mario Murillo is an extremist!” remember that we got to this point of desperation because of the lukewarm voices who refused to admit the approach of danger.

-Remember when California told us not to use our Bibles? Pastors did not galvanize a resistance to stop it.

-Remember when marriage was destroyed? Again, there was no national firewall of righteous leaders to intervene.

-Then they told us to close our churches, even as they condoned mass protests that led to violence and helped spread the virus. Again, there was no unanimous action from American church leaders.

-Then they told us that we cannot sing. This was a test balloon to see how fast they can force the church underground.

So, what is next? Will they extend the church-gathering-ban indefinitely? Will they move on to dictating not only when we can meet, when we can sing, but will they also dictate what we can say? Will we finally find ourselves ordered to read a script that will be, in effect, a repudiation of our faith in Christ?

Remember, we are here because of an incurably wrong-headed sense of political correctness. Well, my brothers and sisters, that season is over. The gloves must come off. The righteous must rise up with a single roar—a noise that is unified and unending must rise from the church.

For years we have been told to just sit back and let it happen. We were told that it was ‘all in God’s hands,’ even as we ignored God’s Words. God has chosen to honor prayer. God rewards those who seek to stand in the gap against national evil. Borrowing one last verse from Isaiah, which tells us our great predicament: “Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor…” (Isaiah 59:15,16). God is shocked, and rightly so, that the American church is still wandering, wavering and weakening in the face of an invading enemy.

And yet, there is great hope because God’s army is rising and its numbers are growing at this very hour. Notable Christian leaders are no longer worried about protecting their reputations, but are taking up a new anointing—a nation-saving anointing!

With every atom of my being, I am exhorting you to take action. To those who have no stomach for war, and are oblivious of the fact that we are already at war, please spare me your empty excuses.

The American church must rise up now. We are about to be bound and gagged by a rogue government. Whatever confidence you have in my ministry—whatever level of trust I have earned—must now be put on the line.

Join us in this great struggle! Join a cause so noble and right that it is beyond belief that every Christian in America is not involved. This is the hour. You will never pass this way again.

Speak now, church, or forever hold your peace!

P.S. A Special message to all of our friends from Mario Murillo Ministries

Why do we offer you books? It is certainly not to blunt the impact of the message you just read. In fact, these books reinforce the message we are trying to spread. More on that in a moment.  So, why do we offer them to you?
When the pandemic closed our tent crusades, church meetings and rallies, the Holy Spirit commanded Mario to keep our staff on at full salary, and trust Him. He obeyed and God has provided. But another thing the Holy Spirit grants are wise ideas. And we needed one. That is when the War Chest Collection was born.
If you look at the page you will see no advertising. And there never will be. And if you get our newsletter you will see that we have stopped raising money for projects we can’t do right now. But even that was not good enough for us.
In this pandemic we needed something that was truly a win-win situation. We prayed for something that would help the people, and us, that was not a garish fund raiser.
Then, we remembered how John Wesley taught his young preachers to always bring books with them that would help the people. Why not then, at a time when people have time to read, offer them something that will empower them and at the same time keep us strong and ready to go as soon as the door reopens?  
We are amazed at the impact of Vessels of Fire and Glory. That book is not just blessing people—it has started a movement! Critical Mass remains required reading in many Christian schools and has never stopped influencing people who pray for revival. Edgewise offers wisdom for living in the last days. Together they provide you with solid, hard-hitting and encouraging truth. Not a bad thing just now.
The War Chest Collection has handed the enemy a double defeat by empowering God’s people and keeping us strong and ready.
Thank you for listening and get your War Chest Collection today. Turn your summer read into equipping, encouragement, and fire! We are all going to come out of this mightier than ever!   -Mario Murillo Ministries

DO THESE FIVE THINGS DURING THE SHUTDOWN

You can’t dwell on the frightening images you will see on cable news. You can’t cave in to the hysteria.  There is something extremely important you must take care of.

After you have taken every precaution necessary for remaining safe—after you have settled it in your soul to remain strong in the Lord, wholly trusting in Him, it will be time for you to fight back.

Everything in me tells me these are the most important days you will know in our lifetime. Waste them, and it will be the greatest regret of your life.

Turn your days at home into the most important breakthrough ever. Turn feelings of helplessness into fuel for an amazing outcome. These are days to let God do a shocking new work inside you.

It all begins with the story of Paul being arrested and put in prison. Satan put Paul in prison, intending to inflict massive damage on Christianity. He thought Paul could no longer win souls, and he could not teach the fledgling churches that desperately needed his Apostleship. In fact, he couldn’t do anything…except for one thing.

He began writing. And writing would be the most devastating thing Paul would ever do to Satan’s kingdom. If Paul hadn’t been confined, he might never have had the time to write.  How could he possibly imagine his writings would impact billions?  Paul ended up writing 60% of the New Testament. Selah.

Jailing Paul was the stupidest mistake Satan ever made, besides crucifying Christ. Now let me show you how to make this confinement in your home, his next major mistake.

1. Model faith to your children. Settle it in your soul that God will pay your bills, protect your job and restore what you have lost. Don’t speak fear and doubt in your home! The greatest lesson you will ever model for your children—and the greatest gift you will ever leave to them—is to confess that everything that has been lost will be restored. Because when this is over and God comes through—as you know He will—they will remember and apply these lessons in their lives, whenever they are threatened. The greatest thing your children can watch you do is trust in God.

2. Read the Bible. Dump all the questionable prophetic words and conspiracy theories. Some in the prophetic camp are losing credibility because they foolishly predicted this plague would leave suddenly. Some even set a date—one that will likely prove them wrong.  In the Old Testament such “prophets” would have been stoned. It is this lack of consequence in the prophetic camp that has wreaked havoc and left many unprepared for the storm that is upon us.

The same applies to conspiracies. How much clearer can the Bible be? Isaiah 8:12-13, “Do not say, ‘A conspiracy,’ concerning all that this people call a conspiracy, neither be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled. The Lord of Armies, Him you shall hallow; let Him be your fear, and let Him be your dread.”

It’s all over the internet, and religious broadcasting: ‘There is a worldwide secret society! It’s the devil and his vessels! Nancy Pelosi cooked up coronavirus in a Chinese laboratory!’

Stop needing a “word from God” from people. Stop digging into controversy. In 2 Timothy 2:23 Paul warned, “Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels.”

Instead, read the Bible! Now that you have a lot of time, get the Word of God in you. That is the most powerful protection, and the best way to understand how to weather this storm.

3. Make a list of goals for this down-time, and work hard to meet those goals. Already, you see how many things have stolen your time.  You see how many things that previously cluttered your life, seem unimportant now. Because you are a child of God, nothing of yours that is vital will be stolen. Your job and your business will be brought back to life. Therefore, choose to see this as a kind of paid vacation. Paid by God.

It is a time to make overdue changes, and big and bold plans for the future. To do that, you must get to work. That means no binge-watching Netflix! It means you seek the heart of God and ask Him to show you the goals He wants you to accomplish. Write those goals out, and make the righteous choices that give those goals the very best chance of coming to pass.

Paul wrote much of the New Testament while he was in forced confinement. Great projects will be born—projects that may swallow up the wrong ones you had before.

Lastly make the most important goal list of all: the things you are never are never going back to.

4.Turn prayer into a habit. Inspiration will lead you to pray, but you must decide to form the habit that will keep you praying. The chilling fact is that if you do not pray during this pandemic, you will never pray at all. Let God deliver you from the greatest hindrances to prayer that I know of: impulse prayer and feeling-based prayer.

Right now, forget about how long you pray. Focus on praying each and every day. Behaviorists have shown that it takes doing something 35 times in a row, before it becomes a habit. If you create that habit, and deepen that habit, you will own life’s greatest skill.  James 5:16, “Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

5. Focus on personal repentance, not national repentance. You do it! Don’t wait for others, or even think about other people’s repentance. People have been babbling about national repentance as if it was something other people need to do. We don’t see national repentance happening yet, so don’t wait for it to happen. Repent on your own!

We do not even see widespread repentance among preachers. Have you heard many preachers on social media admit they’ve been wrong?  We are flooded with messages from preachers. But have you heard one major pastor or preacher repent or promise that they will run church differently than they did before? Do you see any preacher who isn’t just chomping at the bit to restart the same old thing? I promise you, unless deep repentance takes place, you will be shocked at how unchanged the American church will be, after all of this. Think about this: How much really changed after 9/11?

Remember, God is judging America as much because of the world, as because of the church.  The carnal church has left us open to this disaster. And yet, without repentance, we have zero reason to believe it won’t go back to exactly the way it was before. In other words, they will have learned nothing from the pandemic. They just don’t get it.

We pray that God will not force the issue of repentance by extending and deepening our national crisis, until America implodes completely. But you have to wonder how they can all say they want this to be over, and yet they still will not repent.

But, we must not set our hope on that. Our hope is founded on the knowledge that we must repent before God—and that is personal repentance. That will lead to the real miracle of mercy. You see, you can stand as a priest between the sins of America, the sins of the church, and God. That is true intercession. There is a righteous core of believers who can turn this plague away. (read Numbers chapter 16)

Remember, God said He would spare Sodom and Gomorrah if there were just 10 righteous people. We are not going to rebuke this away; we are going to repent it away. You have the power to stand between God and this virus.

We must give God what He is seeking. We can’t worry about how many others are interceding, even if there are only a few. The promises of the Lord are never vague! Neither are the conditions to His promises.

2 Chronicles 7:14, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

But have you heard one major pastor or preacher repent or promise that they will run church differently than they did before? Do you see any preacher who isn’t just chomping at the bit to restart the same old thing? I promise you, unless deep repentance takes place, you will be shocked at how unchanged the American church will be, after all of this. Think about this: How much really changed after 9/11?

Remember, God is judging America as much because of the world, as because of the church.  The carnal church has left us open to this disaster. And yet, without repentance, we have zero reason to believe it won’t go back to exactly the way it was before. In other words, they will have learned nothing from the pandemic. They just don’t get it.

We pray that God will not force the issue of repentance by extending and deepening our national crisis, until America implodes completely. But you have to wonder how they can all say they want this to be over, and yet they still will not repent.

But, we must not set our hope on that. Our hope is founded on the knowledge that we must repent before God—and that is personal repentance. That will lead to the real miracle of mercy. You see, you can stand as a priest between the sins of America, the sins of the church, and God. That is true intercession. There is a righteous core of believers who can turn this plague away. (read Numbers chapter 16)

Remember, God said He would spare Sodom and Gomorrah if there were just 10 righteous people. We are not going to rebuke this away; we are going to repent it away. You have the power to stand between God and this virus.

We must give God what He is seeking. We can’t worry about how many others are interceding, even if there are only a few. The promises of the Lord are never vague! Neither are the conditions to His promises.

2 Chronicles 7:14, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
