NOW FOR SOME REALLY GOOD NEWS

 

Fasten your seat belt, this is really good news. They gathered with excitement and expectation…but none of us were ready for what happened next.

NOW FOR SOME REALLY GOOD NEWS

By Mario Murillo

It is a good sign…they keep adding chairs.  This is happening most of the night.  Another good sign: the house is filled with youth—youth who do not know Jesus—who battle everything devil throws at our children these days.  The best sign is everyone feels special power vibrating in the room.

We are doing a Living Proof Outreach with Ben Lucero, Isaiah Saldivar and the Awakening 209 in Manteca, California.

My message carries an unusual title: When Satan Helps Start Revival.  I begin by describing the strange experience I had after God ordered me to study the youth culture.  My research became torture as I fully grasped the curse Lucifer has laid on an entire generation.

I could actually sense the evil one boasting and threatening.  He was declaring his wicked intentions: “I will addict them.  I will shame them.  I will drain them of hope.  I will kill them.

Then the voice of God roared, BUT I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT ON THEM!  I tell them “I am here tonight because a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit is coming.”  I make a prediction about the emerging army of youth: “You will lay hands on the sick.  You will prophesy.  You will cast out devils.”

Then I explained how Satan is mentally off.  If the devil just wanted to deceive and damn souls he would make everyone content like cattle being fattened for the slaughter.  Instead, he tortures, punishes and makes his victims miserable.  He can’t help himself. Observe California—creating new laws make it impossible for people to be safe or happy.

-Child prostitution is now legal in California.

-Drug dealers must be let out of prison because of bed shortages.

-Violent felons—some who have killed Americans—in California illegally will not be taken into custody.

-In Silicon Valley, American workers are being fired and replaced by foreign workers—and the Americans have to train their replacements!

-California schools—nearly the worst in the nation— are chock full of corruption, mismanagement and loony curriculum.  Reading, writing and arithmetic are out.  Brainwashing about transgenderism, anti-Americanism, and anti-Christian studies are in.

Satan is overplaying his hand in California.  He is creating a misery and despair in the youth of the state that will drive them to Jesus!

Now the audience began to see the proof of what I was saying.  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.

On the heels of her miracle more healings ignite. The vivid details about people’s conditions electrify mighty praise to Jesus the healer.

Suddenly spines straighten, migraine headaches vanish.  A man in the back becomes so excited he just gets up out of his wheelchair and begins a little victory dance over his healing.  A full 60 minutes of unobstructed healings flood the house with shouts of joy and mass weeping.

God saved the best for last.  Never have I seen conviction grip youth like this. It was as if they wanted me to shut up and let them come to Christ.  It was an instant response crowned with total surrender.  They abandoned their sin as if it were nuclear waste. Notice, in the picture, the overwhelming number of young men who came forward.  This is really good news—prophetic news about a coming youth revolution.

Breaking news from Mario Murillo Ministries

Something we were going to do next year we are going to do now.  We are ahead of schedule on something big.  Let me explain:  I am aflame with the passion to expose the lies that have been heaped on our children for the last 8 years.  What they get on campus—what they get from Hollywood—what they get from social media…numbs the intellect, darkens the heart and devastates the spirit.  Worst of all…it is killing America.

Something we were going to do next year we are going to do now.  We are ahead of schedule on something big.  Let me explain:

I am aflame with the passion to expose the lies that have been heaped on our children for the last 8 years.  What they get on campus—what they get from Hollywood—what they get from social media…numbs the intellect, darkens the heart and devastates the spirit.  Worst of all…it is killing America.

Let me ask you something…what is the best thing we could do for the next generation?  Bevan Jones said, “Never let a generation grow up without that knowledge of Divine things which may contain the germ of national revival in years to come.”

This sums up my passion and my unbroken focus:  To give them Divine things—the proof of Jesus Christ—is what we live and breathe.  Now let me ask you this what is the best way to do this? The answer is rallies.  I know that sounds obvious and self-serving for an evangelist but hear me out.

year-end-1

Trump proved the power of rallies.  Conventional wisdom said Trump would lose the election because he didn’t have a ground game.  They said he was foolish to rely on events that fired people up.  However, those rallies gave people hope.  They were patriotic.  They confronted the issues that face people every day.  They caused people to vote!

We learned from this example that God wanted us to widen and deepen the impact of our rallies.  The rallies are already powerful.  God is spreading His Word through this ministry.  Our rallies are not word alone but mighty demonstrations of His power—irresistible conviction of sin, and baptisms of the Holy Spirit.

Word, music and atmosphere combine in a way that is for this hour and for this generation.   God is making an unmistakable statement.  He is infusing us with power to reach the young as never.

Here is the breaking news: Two irresistible forces have come together to ignite a raging fire of urgency in my soul.  It is these forces that compel me to move up something to next Sunday that we were waiting to do next year.

The first force is the unique power that came into our rally in Bakersfield.  We just had a Living Proof rally in Bakersfield.  A young girl in the back was targeted by the love and power of God.  The Holy Spirit gave me vivid details of her condition.  The oxygen went out of the room as youth beheld the power of God.  It touched off a volley of miracles and a harvest of souls in a way we have never seen.   The pictures you see are from that rally.

new-4-shot

This shocking new dimension of the power of the Holy Spirit convinced me the time was now not next year.

The second force was the urgency of the national mercy we have received.  I know the night is coming where no man can work.  I know if we do not violently take the Kingdom right now, we will doom those who come after us.  This miracle may be only temporary.  I know it is fragile, and comes with grave danger. If we blow this opportunity, something worse will overtake us.  Your children and grandchildren will face an unimaginable horror.

We are in danger because the left—stung by the election—is already plotting to launch a massive retaliation.  Universities, billionaires and tech companies are ramping up their rhetoric, paying agitators to target the church.

year-end-3

The media—though utterly discredited for lying and colluding—is arrogant and delusional.   Soon they will ramp up a new assault on free speech.

But the most dangerous threat is Christian apathy over Trump.  They see him as a savior and a type of King Cyrus.  They see history repeating itself.  But here is the rest of that history.  Cyrus indeed liberated the Jews, but after that he was not much help.  Not only this, the Jews faced violent opposition from outside and complacency and corruption among their own.   It took Israel 80 years to be restored.

I beg you, hear me now!  WE DON’T HAVE 80 YEARS!  This is our last chance.  Trump is only a foot in the door—a stay of execution.  Trump buys the church time to repent and return to her rightful influence on America. 

I thought this new impact would begin next year…then Bakersfield happened.  The widening and the deepening has come now!  These two forces have placed an explosive mandate in me: DON’T WAIT DO IT NOW!

So, we will begin in Houston next Sunday December 4th .  I know that this is short notice—so was Azusa Street!  I am asking you—if you live within driving distance of Houston to consider the following challenge:

Join me for a supernatural outpouring if fire and miracles that are designed to bring this generation to Jesus.  Tell youth or anyone else for that matter—they will see proof of the power of Jesus.  Tell your Christian friends and family that they will be in on a Fire-starter meeting that could sweep America.

We are coming to New Life Church in Houston next Sunday December 4th at  10:30 AM and 6 PM.  These are not “normal” days…and there will be nothing “normal” about these services.  They are unapologetic miracle rallies.  See you there! – Mario Murillo

P.S. To all of our friends across the nation…prepare for these rallies to impact your region!

I HAVE SOME REALLY GOOD NEWS FOR YOU

ARE YOU READY

 

I have some really good news for you—news that won’t just make your day it will make your month.  The problem is we don’t care about good news anymore.  It is sad but true.  If I were to post a blog about the current insanity thousands would read it.  If I wander into the fray between Trump, Cruz and Hillary it might go viral.  Bad news sells.

Why we prefer bad news rather than good news remains a mystery.   Here is what Psychology Today Magazine theorizes: “Media studies show that bad news far outweighs good news by as much as seventeen negative news reports for every one good news report. Why? The answer may lie in the work of evolutionary psychologists and neuroscientists.  Humans seek out news of dramatic, negative events.

Manteca 4

GOD’S SPIRIT PULLING YOUNG SOULS INTO THE KINGDOM!

Many studies have shown that we care more about the threat of bad things than we do about the prospect of good things. Our negative brain tripwires are far more sensitive than our positive triggers. We tend to get more fearful than happy. And each time we experience fear we turn on our stress hormones.”

Okay, since some are so bent on bad news—let me give you some very bad news before I give you the good news.   The presidential election will not save America no matter who is elected.  Our debt is too high and our morals are too low.  We are beyond any scientifically known cure.

Imagine America a patient in a hospital bed.  The doctor is explaining its condition to the family:  “Not one vital organ is working.  Multiple viruses ravage the immune system.  Bones, muscles, nerves and tissue are disintegrating because the body has declared war on itself.  Death is certain…all we have left to do is to try to extend its life and reduce pain.  But even that is now impossible.”

Last night

In 1966, Life magazine gave a similar diagnosis about the youth of America.  It explained—using terrifying statistics—that they were doomed.  It offered but one solution: “If there is any answer, it must come from among them.”   Within 2 years of that death sentence…the Jesus movement began.

Now, despite your carnal nature’s appetite for bad news…here comes some very good news: Last night something happened.  Something big happened.  Last night was like a woodsman trapped in the artic…it’s 50 below and night is falling.  He frantically is striking flints together hoping for a lifesaving spark.  After countless tries he hits it right.  The spark becomes a flame.  Last night a nation-saving fire sparked to life.

Many won’t be interested in knowing about the young man who decided to quit life.  I walked up to him and declared, “Today, Satan told you to quit because God is not real…but God is real, and He will never let you go.”  He hit the floor under a shock wave of the Holy Ghost!  Dozens of youth around him felt the concussion in their souls.

Manteca 2

TODAY SATAN TOLD YOU TO QUIT.  HE SAID THERE IS NO HOPE.

Ranging to my left I caught sight of a woman and immediately her life story was revealed to me.  Jesus took over and healed her from head to toe.  Her miracle touched her bones—bones that felt as if they were liquefying.  She was transformed by the power of God right before our eyes.

This miracle ignited the rest.  Before it was over fully one third of the entire audience stood to declare that they had been healed by the power of God.   This is all wonderful but the true drama of that night was about to come.

Here is the good news: Something happened in Manteca that I have not felt since 1974 in Berkeley. 

I can’t tell you yet—soon I will—but there is a cloud over the “accepted leadership” of much of the church that is going to be sidelined in favor of a fresh generation that is not corrupted by money, immorality, or lust for power. 

God is raising them up to be a voice that will roar across the nation!  I saw it last night and it should be heralded all over the land…trouble is we like bad news so much that we have almost lost our capacity to rejoice when something truly wonderful happens.

manteca 1

Just as Jesus called Lazarus out of the grave…the Holy Spirit called young people out of every kind of death you could imagine.  But something much deeper was happening here.  It was unmistakable.   Something from heaven got into the entire crowd of people.  They were totally transformed.

I can say with conviction that God put something unstoppable in this young crowd. 

I have seen many events—I can tell when it will fizzle and when it will rage on.  Good news…something began last night that could—without a doubt—take the nation by storm.

THE FIRE BEGAN IN SAN JOSE.  IT INTENSIFIED IN MANTECA.  NOW WE MOVE ON TO YUBA CITY AND LIVE OAK!

3 Reasons this is Exactly the Right Time to Seek Revival

exactly

Three reasons why this is exactly the right time to seek revival

By Mario Murillo

This is exactly the right time to seek revival.  Here are 3 reasons why:

1.  The big SO WHAT in the Bible: Admit past revivals went extreme. Admit most attempts at revival misfire at ignition (many alleged awakenings were actually snooze alarms.)   Admit millions of Christians repose in impotent slumber beneath motivational mush.  Admit revival camps won’t unify because of their “we-must-lead-the-revival-or-else attitude.  Admit current cultural conditions make revival the impossible dream.   In short, I say, admit conditions within and without could not be worse for revival…and I say, “SO WHAT!”

Never mind that I said it—Paul said it!  “For what (so what) if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect? Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar.”  -Romans 3: 3, 4.

-It’s a lie to say bad attempts at revival mean we should not try again.

-It’s a lie to believe comatose Christianity cannot be jolted back to life.

-It’s a lie to think revival egos cannot be broken down into vibrant unity.

-It’s a lie to believe that our culture—or any other culture for that matter—is greater than the power of God.

In short, let God be true and every “expert” made a liar.

SO WHAT!  So what if we deem this the worst of times for revival if—in fact—history shows it is the best of times for a revival.  Yea, in these very times, God demonstrates His power.

Clear away the cobwebs…see the burning question:  Does anything going on today overrule the power of taking God at His Word?

SO WHAT IF OTHERS HAVE FAILED.  DOES THEIR FAILURE MAKE THE PURSUIT OF REVIVAL ANY LESS NOBLE?  DOES IT MEAN GOD WILL NOT REWARD US AS HE PROMISED?  THE FAILURE IN REVIVAL IS NOT FALLING DOWN BUT IN STAYING DOWN!  

raw bravery

2.  God sends revival in the worst of times. At key moments when God’s people assume that the darkness will prevail and moral awakening is utterly impossible, God will drop a measure of His Spirit on humanity.  This deposit of His life immediately renders people desperate and they stampede to the place of Glory.  Simultaneously, God drops a deep and wide spirit of prayer on His people. 

Masses instinctively realize that this gift is the cure for their inner agony!   Believe me; God knows how to incite reckless abandon on the part of sinners.  It is unmistakable when it happens.

Welsey Duewel said, “It is almost as if God’s spiritual fire from heaven has touched down like a powerful tornado of blessing and leaped from place to place.  All these divine manifestations have been marked by an unusually widespread awareness of God’s presence, God’s mercy, and God’s transforming power in the lives of people.”

How can a society—as jaded as ours—be the tinder of revival fire?  The answer is as simple as hurricanes.  The tropical lows create the violent winds.  Nature rushes in to fill a vacuum.

Activist judges and liberal leaders have starved America of God!  Rather than create a society that is immune, they have inadvertently created a voracious appetite predicted in the Bible. Watch out when the banquet hall of revival opens. There will be a feeding frenzy!  Amos 8:11 says, ““Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord God, “That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the Lord.”

youth revival

3.  The return of the true revivalist. Spirits of pride, entitlement and control—in our leaders—are consumed in the fire of awakening. Basic truths—buried under the rubble of profane doctrines and seductive sermons—rise again to gleaming splendor.   Brace yourself!  Classic preaching on the Cross—the Blood—the second coming of Christ will take center stage in thousands of pulpits.  

Beware the revived pastor in all his degree—but beware most of the return of the true revivalist.   The devil carries no dread like the dread of the arrival of the true revivalist: unselfish to the core—unstoppable in the pursuit—unswerving in direction.

Satan still licks wounds inflicted by John Wesley, George Whitefield, Charles Finney, Evan Roberts and William Seymour.  The devil camouflaged the era of each of these men with suffocating despair.  They slashed the stage props and commanded heaven to invade earth.

Beware the arrival of the true revivalist.  They will be God-possessed!  Simply put, they own a supernatural drive, enthusiasm, excitement, and single-mindedness in pursuit of their destiny. The look in their eye says, “to stop me you’ll have to kill me!”  They carry that elusive “fire in the belly” that manifests itself in drive, enthusiasm, excitement, and single-mindedness in pursuit of a goal—any goal.  All true revivalists have it.  Many well-educated, intelligent, endearing and presentable preachers do not and never will.

Let me adapt Israelmore Ayivor’s words to describe the true revivalist:                                                                                                   

-Their critics make them strong!
-Their fears make them bold!
-Their haters make them wise!
-Their foes make them active!
-Their obstacles make them passionate!
-Their losses make them wealthy!
-Their disappointments make them feel appointed!
-Their unseen treasures give them a known peace!

These are three reasons…but we have every reason to drop to our knees right now and begin to ask for the greatest thing we will ask for.

 

 

 

 

JUMPING THE SHARK

jumping-the-shark blog

 

Jumping the shark

By Mario Murillo

We are trapped in a highly embarrassing situation: Youth are leaving churches to meet in homes—now get this—to study the Bible and pray.  This is happening because many churches have jumped the shark.

Wikipedia says, “’Jumping the shark’ is an idiom used to describe the moment a television show begins a decline in quality, signaled by a particular scene, episode, or aspect of a show in which the writers use some type of gimmick in an attempt to keep viewers’ interest, which is taken as a sign of desperation, and is seen by viewers to be the point at which the show strayed irretrievably from its original formula. The phrase is based on a scene from a fifth-season episode of the sitcom Happy Days when the character Fonzie jumps over a shark while on water-skis.”

The two kinds of churches hit by this youth exodus are:  1. The Seeker (mega) churches.  2. Churches that focus on exotic supernatural experiences.

How Seeker (mega) churches jumped the shark:  The idea was that the Gospel—on its own—would not attract the unchurched.  They hoped that by adding—enhancements—buttresses—rebranding, they would impact secular culture.   Culture won.

They had zero impact on cultural deterioration.  While they frantically tinkered, America entered a moral nuclear winter.  Violence, debauchery and atheism spiked on their watch.  This forced their goal to change from reformation to simply keeping seats full.

In desperation they jump more sharks: Secular music ousts hymns—half-naked women do dance productions—people get tattooed on stage as a backdrop to preaching…and the preaching is mushier than ever.

Then the shocker:  The doctrines, values and compelling truth that seeker pastors so assiduously extracted—thinking it would attract youth—is the vacuum that drove them away.

Prophetic/Hyper-supernatural churches are also jumping the shark.   Prophecies, encounters with angels, dripping oil, feathers and soul travel are reported with greater frequency…they have to be.

It is not enough for speakers to say they visited the third heaven, now they have to say they do it daily, and finally they say they can do it at will.  It is not enough to say Jesus visited them, now their guests are dead ministers—plus, they can invite others to these séances.  The sheer abundance of prophetic words, mystical experiences and soul travel that are now required in order to maintain popularity is breathtaking.

Youth are leaving these kinds of churches.  They may have oohed and awed for a season—now these extremes make their eyes roll.

We have the best message the world has ever heard.  Trying to improve it or spice it up only makes it worse.   We have the best book ever written.   We have the Holy Spirit to give us grace and power to more than match the evil of our day.

The American church is guilty of wresting away control from the Holy Spirit.   We have every advantage and yet we are losing for all the wrong reasons.  Never have so many, done so little, with so much!

Yet, we have every reason to be encouraged if our youth are craving the Word of God.  In fact, those who are listening and rejecting falsehood are hearing a clear message:  God is revealing to all praying people that a glorious new work of the Spirit is about to break forth. 

praying

Yes, we can still turn everything around!  Our youth are yearning for the Bible—that is awesome news!   So get up, let’s go!  It starts with these simple declarations:

  1. The Bible is able to stand against all cultural lies. Preaching the Blood, the Cross, the Second Coming and yes, Hell transforms your pulpit into the place of power. Do not apologize just speak it and watch the Spirit of almighty God make your preaching into something you never imagined.

Recognize the danger signs!  When simple Biblical truth no longer thrills you—when you feel the need to be more exotic…stop!  Never let the audience clamor for more spooky revelations.

  1. Crave the towering miracles of the book of acts and not parlor tricks. Kathryn Kuhlman saw awesome power in a reverent atmosphere. The book of Acts and Corinthians are gleaming road maps to the kinds of healings, prophecies and miracles that no culture can stop and no generation can resist.
  2. Realize that God wants to do great and mighty things even more than we do. He does not need to be convinced to work, nor do we need to invent work to make up for some deficiency in God.

The Holy Spirit is waiting in the wings to lead us out of this mess.   Every minister who reads this has the power to repent and receive unquestioned clarity and authority that will make them compelling to youth.

Instead of jumping the shark—let’s flatten the enemy.

YOUR GREATEST HOUR

 

Your greatest hourYour Greatest Hour

 The art of doing what people say can’t be done.

By Mario Murillo

This is the hour of darkness, violence and perplexity.  This is the hour that sneers at hope—ridicules faith—taunts righteousness, and abhors dreams and visions.  The bullhorn of evil is drowns out any call to a just cause or a holy endeavor. It screams to every vessel of God, “You can’t do it—compromise or quit!

Hell is belching out defeatism—a defeatism so complete that its victim—redefines their failure and it becomes success.  

The government calls food stamps, condoms, needles, and methadone salvation for the needy.  The real message is “your highest hope is to live out your days in government slavery.”

governmentassitance_zps4c1340e2

-The White House calls acts of surrender to our enemies, diplomatic solutions.

-The thug culture tells urban youth turning tricks, dealing drugs and looting stores beats honest work.

-Political correctness says “keep saying that Islam is a religion of peace because it will keep Muslims from acts of violence.”

-Moral relativists say you can’t overcome perverse desires—therefore they are natural.

-Church growth models tell pastors it is a win—if you remove the Cross, Blood and hell from your sermons—to get a crowd.  This model indeed herded people into harmless meetings…but by distracting God’s people from revival it helped hasten the moral landslide of America.

Recent history proves compromise is unnecessary.  Between 1965 and 1985, 25 million Americans were converted to Christ.  Ministries like Billy Graham, Oral Roberts, Kathryn Kuhlman, Pat Robertson, and Jerry Faldwell had a combined television audience of 40 million people. The largest arenas and stadiums filled with hungry hearts yearning for a true encounter with God.  Those preachers shifted America toward morality.

praying for a boy

We are constantly being told what we can’t do. America can’t believe in God.  You can’t hold a marriage together.  Christians can’t live in victory.  Students in our Bible School hear that they can’t have miracles and the power of the Holy Spirit.   The list of things that are now impossible grows longer each day.

We hear faith-killing statements everyday: “the day for that is past.  People don’t want to hear it anymore.  There are no resources for that.  You are too young.  You are told old.  You are not educated.  You are overqualified.

Are you sick of hearing that you can’t do great and mighty things?  Does your gut tell you some awesome intervention of God can still happen?  This can also be your greatest hour—the hour you practice the art of doing what others say you cannot do.   Now learn the art!

you-cant-do-it copy

1Every visionary that ever lived did what others told them they could not do.   As dark and evil as today is—as daunting as the task may seem—many have faced impossible limits like this before.   In fact, the tortured culture of today was vividly described in this verse: “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.” –Daniel 11:32.   Here are two groups of people: 1.Those corrupted by flattery—seduced into believing that drunkenness and denial was natural.  2. Those that know God and do what their circumstances said they could not do.

This second group shakes off the despair, the religion and the threats of their time by knowing God.  This will take you to the next level.

2. Only you and God know what you can still do in this hour. No matter how many teachers you have, there is no substitute for your private relationship with Jesus.  He alone can tell you how to do the impossible.

Today, there is a core that is being pulled into an intimate knowledge of God.  He is drawing people to Himself—people who refuse to fear and be intimidated by what goes on around them.

1 Samuel 30: 6 tells us, “Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.”

David knew what the circumstances said.  He could hear the death threats.  What he wanted to hear was the voice of the God he had so passionately loved and served.  His cry is—“I know what life is telling me but what do YOU say?   Even when your life lies at your feet like sputtering rubble—like David’s did, the choice to trust God—to be led by God remains.

God said to David in 1 Samuel 30 verse 8 “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.”  This guidance violated all reason!  It opposed logic…it was what everyone would have told David he could not do.

3.You can know with absolute certainty God wants you to do—and when you know, you will become unstoppable. What are the threats of this time compared to God? Paul said, “If God be for us who can be against us.”   If God has spoken, how can your lack of resources matter?  How will He not provide?  If He says it is doable that settles it.

 

It is clear that the times we live in require wisdom and power that we can’t imagine.  The sheer sophistication of evil can overwhelm us.  Nevertheless there is no excuse to compromise.  No one has the right to tell God that reaching this generation is beyond the power of the Word of God.   We can do things to win America that people say we can’t do!

There are more ideas and tactics discovered with the help of the Bible—ideas that will reveal God’s will to the masses—push back the power of Satan—and do more good for this generation than all of the learning of philosophers and politicians combined.

There is unlimited authority and strength available through the Holy Spirit.  Do you really think He won’t show you what to do about your church, your career, your problems and your needs?  It for these matters that Jesus sent Him to us!

If God

4. Know when to start. When you know God, and you know what He wants you to do then you must start.  You must set the time.  You must take that first step to do what you know you are supposed to do.  He may only give you a first step…but when you take that step you will know what the next step is.

Finally: The greatest vessels of God appear in times of calamity and confusion. This day of trouble is your opportunity to be your best, to be more than you ever imagined you could be.

To do what others say you can’t do is the most eloquent act of defiance against fear: The moment you decide to stand, fight and build you will release the power of the Holy Spirit.  Unknown reserves of courage will well up within you!

Never forget that this will all soon be over:  In heaven, you will only regret what you did not leave on the field of battle.  It is the steps untaken, and the challenges avoided that will haunt you.

This will all soon be over.  The threat that seems so big now will look so puny there.   So let me ask you…what are you saving your courage for?  What are you withholding your talent, resources and dreams for?   Surely they are all for such a time as this.  This is your greatest hour—the hour that you did what others said you could not do.

 

Now I want to invite you to a convention that will help turn America around!

three voices

We three voices agree.  A supernatural intervention unlike anything we have seen in history must come or America is finished.  The church in America has been struck by an iceberg.  Over one thousand preachers a month are leaving the ministry defeated by the open hostility of our culture and the draining effect of lukewarm believers.  We cannot go on this way.  We must rise and face the challenge of a godless America.

This convention will confront the threat against the American Church head on.  We have brushed aside all of the frills and distractions you may associate with religious conventions.  Our focus is for you to receive fresh fire and direction.

The Living Proof World Convention will be held at New Life Church   March 3- 4- 5 New Life Church 10800 Hammerly Blvd, Houston, TX 77043   church Phone (713) 932-1479

What we know, that others do not, about reaching youth in America.

What we know, that others do not, about reaching youth in America.

By Mario Murillo

The picture you see is nearly 200 people—mainly youth—surrendering to Christ.  In city after city, this miracle is being repeated.  Our audiences are getting younger and signs and wonders are increasing.

Since I last wrote you, we have hit Austin, Texas, Branson, Missouri and Turlock, California.  Yuba City was so explosive that we are forced to return there on October 11-13th.

In Branson the fire is still falling–many have told us the miracles and salvation of youth are unheard of here–forcing us to extend meetings for a third time.

Here is what we know, that others do not, about reaching youth in America.  That statement sounds arrogant but this is not written in arrogance.  This is coming to you in humble fear and trembling.  It is not a boast—it is a statement of fact. 

what we know 2 copy

We declare it because we are in a war.   The great ambition in any war is victory.  To get victory, generals know there are two imperatives:

-You must get the best weapons, in the right hands, as fast as possible.

-You must demonstrate that the fighting is effective.  That way, vital support for the war will grow.

Those are the two unambiguous goals of this letter.  I am going to show you that we have been given a precious insight and edge in the war for our children’s souls.  Then I am going to call for you to take action in this battle for our nation’s survival.

First, here is what we know:

  1. Confronting Obama and speaking out for America does not alienate youth. The wreckage of his administration, the cruelty of his actions toward his political enemies and his arrogant disregard for the economy has cost him dearly among young people.

In a detailed, national poll released by Harvard’s Institute of Politics, nearly half of young voters said they would remove President Obama from office if they could.

We do not preach a right-wing message, but it is our duty to oppose willful destruction of our constitution and our way of life.  The important thing is to do it sparingly, in context, and only by the direction of the Holy Spirit.

Opposing Obama does not close the door to youth; in our case, it opens it.  They blame him for destroying their future.  It may look hip and cool to some preachers to remain silent, but many youth consider them traitors.

What we know 5

  1. They want the Gospel, not gimmicks. In her ground breaking article, How the Seeker-Sensitive, Consumer Church Is Failing a Generation, Dorothy Greco said:

“The millennial generation’s much-talked-about departure from church might lead those of us over 30 to conclude that they have little interest in Jesus. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Unfortunately, their spiritual coming of age has coincided with many Protestant pastors relying on a consumer business model to grow and sustain their churches. This template for doing church and the millennials’ hunger for authenticity has caused an ideological collision.”

Youth feel a huge let down when they go to church and get nothing challenging.    That is why we don’t waste time trying to create a rock concert atmosphere…we are not trying to “relate.”

We openly preach the entire message of Jesus, including the Cross and the Blood.  This touches something deep inside this generation.   Youth want truth.  They sense impending disaster. They know they need something that will last no matter what. They want rock-solid answers, not fantasies.

  1. They want to experience the supernatural presence and power of God. There is nothing more wonderful than that moment when the Holy Spirit begins to do miracles witnessed by a new generation.

In Turlock, God fixed His gaze on a young girl in the balcony.  (As His unworthy servant, I share this with great concern that Christ be given all of the glory). I opened my mouth and out came a list of the names of illnesses and the location of those illnesses in her body.

The collective gasp in the crowd bore witness to the fact of an undeniable miracle.  Her friend told us later that this complete healing revolutionized her and still reverberates to her friends.What we know 3

We get out of God’s way so He can demonstrate his love and power in a way that Main Street will admit that something real is happening…it is the key to our children’s future and our way of life.

Not one young person leaves the meetings spooked by the gifts of the Holy Spirit.  The look of wonder is worth every drop of suffering it took to bring us to this point.

Now I want to talk straight to your heart.

The golden moment—the moment Living Proof is all about–is when youth fully realize that the same God who just healed a serious disease can heal their soul.

Of all the things I could wish for in this world, it would be to have you there when it happens.   If you could, then you would share in my great joy and my great agony.  We need to do so much more than we are doing!   More people need to know about our meetings!  Every night, I leave ecstatic, yet frustrated.

Few events anywhere in America combine the weapons we do in our meetings.   You can’t find another event that so completely and effectively confronts youth with the Gospel.

What intensifies my frustration is that in the few times that we have been able to eke out extra finances to advertise in secular media, our impact grows exponentially. There is no reason we should be held back like this!  We should be able to shout the news of our meetings from the rooftops!

Now, I am asking you to help me do something that will greatly increase our effectiveness.  I have made the decision to leave Christian Television.  Unchurched youth are not watching–it is useless as a tool to get youth to our meetings.

On Wednesday, June 24, I received this clear message from the Lord: “Persecution is about to increase suddenly, but so will my signs and wonders.”    I released a blog about this on Thursday morning, the 25th.

It happened the next day!   On June 26, gay marriage became law.  Suddenly, it was open season on Christians.  Now massive law suits seek to silence the church.

I had to pray and ask, “What do I do if all normal channels are closing?”  The answer is that you don’t wait; you seek wisdom from God.  I did and came to a big decision:

I must leave Christian television and begin building a youth audience through the internet and social media. 

We can build a massive youth internet audience for a lot less than you think.  But I must upgrade our equipment.  The good news is that we can do it for only $30,000!

America can still be turned back into one nation under God!  To get there, we must take the steps to fight evil with wisdom and cunning from the Holy Spirit.

I am asking you to write one big historic check to help me build this media. You are the heart of this ministry and you love America.  I know that if we pray and obey we will reach our goal of $30,000!
