HOW THE WAY I PREPARE FOR THE TENT IS A MODEL FOR TAKING BACK AMERICA.

Today is the day and I am getting ready. I feel it is urgent to tell you how I prepare for a tent meeting and how that is a model for getting the church back on the offensive in America.

Sun Tzu said, “Warriors of old placed themselves beyond the possibility of defeat, and then waited for an opportunity of defeating the enemy.” That is what I do spiritually. Can I get you away from the news for a moment? Can I get you to understand the secret for getting back on the attack—regardless of who you are?

Before I walk into that tent, I see those people already healed. I see the drug addicts already delivered. I have already won the war, alone with God. That is why everyone that knows me knows that they have to jealously guard my afternoon, because I cannot be with anyone but Christ. And Christ must defeat my flesh. And if He defeats me, and my flesh, then He can work through me to defeat the powers of darkness.

Besides confidence, we also need fire. And fire will burn out indecision. It will burn out confusion. It will allow you to put all the controversy on the shelf, and then resume the urgent act of praying the right words: “Lord, the nation is in serious trouble. You called me, You trained me, You raised me up for a specific purpose, and I cannot be distracted by all that.”

One important thing that everyone can take away from what I do to get ready for a tent crusade, is that I don’t let the outward appearance sway me. Can you imagine standing in front of a tent full of wheelchairs and people on crutches, and some of the most absolutely suffering humanity you have ever seen? I don’t see them that way. I cannot walk in there with my own eyes.

And likewise, you: you can’t face live, do your job, or even turn on your TV, until you refuse to let what you seen control what you believe.!

God can make you the catalyst. A catalyst is an element that changes everything around it without itself undergoing a change. Imagine how important that is right now.

The Gospel is also a catalyst. When I charge onto the stage I am tell myself: ‘Here is what God told me to tell America. And knowing that I am saying what God told me to tell America, gives me the right to believe that the dead will be raised, the addict will be delivered, the churches will be unified.

My confession: ‘I have the fire. I have the message that God gave me for America!” If you get that same confidence, nothing will be able to stop you.

Here is the point I want to make. Dorcas was dead. And sometimes we need faith to come at us from a completely new direction. Dorcas was dead, and the people around her dead body said, “This is not right! This is not right!

And they found out that Peter, the great Apostle, was in Joppa. They didn’t bring him there for a wake. They didn’t bring him over there to reminisce about Dorcas’ life. They literally said, “Bring him here, to raise her from the dead.” That is a level of submission to the Spirit and power in the Book of Acts that we can’t hardly relate to.

In the same way that they said “this is not right”, so I will stand in that tent and tell sickness and addiction to go. ENOUGHT IS ENOUGH!

In that same way–by confessing that the condition of America is not right and must be changed–we can reclaim our nation and see victory.

Here is what God is telling us: we are not supposed to let Biden teach our children. We are not supposed to let Kamala Harris dominate our lives. That isn’t America!

I can no more imagine an atheistic-America than I can imagine an atheistic-Israel. America is also a land with covenants. Wells. Deep spiritual history. And, folks, God is rolling up His sleeves. He is fiercely in love with what America was. A group of people that crossed an ocean on pieces of wood that you and I wouldn’t dare imagine stepping on, in order to have freedom to worship Christ. And they carved a nation out of the wilderness, and that spirit has got to get back in us!

God is with us. God is on us. I don’t know how we’re going to do it, but God’s going to give us a plan. God’s going to give us the money. God’s going to give us the gifts and the power and the influence and the open door. And no atheist spirit, no perverted spirit, can stand before the Body of Christ, when She shakes Herself from Her division and Her confusion, and Her lack of memory.

The second weapon David used on the giant was the sling. The first weapon was his memory of what God had done in the past. He looked at Saul, and said, “You want to know why that nine-and-a-half-foot tall man is going to die? It is because your servant killed a lion and a bear.”

The Bible says, “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.”

Church! We have been here before, and we are going to win again by the power of God. God just needs to turn on the fire, and stir that fire again in our souls!

Please shake it off! God wants to give us our nation back.

We can all find someone to blame. We can blame prophets. We can blame doubters. But as long as we are blaming, we are unavailable to take our nation back. We must shake off all distraction and division. God wants to give us our nation back.

The enemy has invaded. This is not the time to turn on each other! Look to God again. Listen to the stirring of the Holy Spirit.

The strategies and tactics for regaining America are being released from heaven to a special core who will shake off the battle fatigue of Satan.

And if He defeats me, and my flesh, then He will defeat the powers of darkness.

Besides hope, we also need fire. And fire will burn out indecision. It will burn out confusion. It will allow you to put all the controversy about ‘who failed’ and ‘who did what’ on the shelf, and then resume the urgent act of praying, “Lord, the nation is in serious trouble. You called me, You trained me, You raised me up for a specific purpose, and I cannot be distracted by all that.”

And likewise, you: you can’t go to your job, you can’t turn on your TV, you can’t do anything!

And that’s why I have a phrase that I live by, “The end times are not happening to me. I am happening to the end times.”

And so, suddenly, God will make you the catalyst. A catalyst is an element that changes everything around it without itself undergoing a change.

The Gospel is the message that God is most interested in. I think to myself, ‘Here is what God told me to tell America.’ Because, once you know that what you are saying is what God told you to tell America, you have the right to believe that the dead will be raised, the addict will be delivered, the churches will be unified, and you become unstoppable!

The pulpit I yearn for, for every one of my brothers and sisters right now, is that belief: ‘I have the fire. I have the message that God gave me for America!” And nothing will be able to stop you.

They literally said, “Bring him here, to raise her from the dead.” That is a level of submission to the Spirit and power in the Book of Acts that we can’t hardly relate to.

But it’s about right and wrong. Abraham Lincoln said, “right makes might.”

Here is what God is telling us: we are not supposed to let Biden teach our children. We are not supposed to let Kamala Harris dominate our lives. That isn’t America!

I can no more imagine an atheistic-America than I can imagine an atheistic-Israel. America is also a land with covenants. Wells. Deep spiritual history. And, folks, God is rolling up His sleeves.

Today this blog reached a lifetime total of 10 Million views

Today, Mario Murillo’s blog reached a lifetime total of 10 million views. That is huge by any standard, but the real story is much bigger. And the only reason we are telling you about this, is to give God all the glory for what is being accomplished through this humble little blog.
To begin with, no one knows exactly how many have read the blog. Ten million is the number that the left-leaning social media has reported to have read the blog. The real number is doubtless far greater.
We know that certain subjects are routinely and hilariously shadow-banned. Shadow-banning is the act of blocking or partially blocking a user or their content from an online community, such that it will not be readily apparent to the user that they have been banned.
Another form of banning is to throttle the number of views. We don’t know how this is done or who is doing it. The way we notice it is this: We see on Facebook that our blog has been shared 1,000 times, but it shows up on our site as if only 700 people read it. Hilarious!
Only God knows how many have read the blog or would have read it without these restraints.  If you have tried to share this blog, then you know the games that social media plays with it, all the time.
 This blog began under the Obama administration. At that time, it was taboo for preachers to rebuke and declare the Word of God to politicians. In fact, many churches closed their doors to Mario because of his daily exposure of the overt wickedness of the Left, and his continual warnings about the silence of the church.
Fast forward to today and you can see the shift. Preachers are openly declaring righteousness and taking stands against leftist socialism. We believe this blog has played a part in that shift.  Paul said, “And most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much bolder to speak the word without fear” (Philippians 1:14).
From here, we will move on to even greater breakthroughs. This blog will not be tamed and we have certainly seen God unchain it, again and again. His counsel will go forth to the nations!
Register to get the blog sent directly to your email. We expect social media to start blocking it again as the election gets closer.
Finally, we thank God for all of you who have borne the battle with us and helped make this blog the amazing force it is today. By His grace, our blog will continue to be a powerful voice for the kingdom of God, until the day Jesus returns.
THANK YOU!

SEPARATE TO ME

A massive number of Christians are experiencing a strange miracle.  And we are discovering that this was predicted—in detail.

The Holy Spirit is separating them. He has selected them for special grace and power to accomplish mighty acts at the edge of history. They will be uniquely equipped to face the sophisticated evil of our time. But it all begins by making peace with the Holy Spirit and restoring His rightful place in our hearts and in the church.

Take a close look at the book of Acts and you will see the disarming down-to-earth way they related to the Holy Spirit. While they revered Him deeply, they had a sense of His nearness and His involvement in their day to day operation. They behaved as if He was close by and they could almost see Him. Most of all, they anticipated His instructions.

 Acts 13:2 “As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” 3 Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away. 4 So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to Cyprus.”

Millions are now hearing the same call: “SEPARATE TO ME!” The Holy Spirit told David Wilkerson about this coming separation, and how pockets of prophetic people would huddle together across our nation.

He said, “God-hungry people are saying among themselves, “This is not it. There is something more. The bigness and the sensationalism of it all has left us empty and dry. We want more. More than entertainment. More than big, showy buildings. More than a shallow celebrity gospel. We want deeper values. We want to see Jesus. We want spotless robes of righteousness. We want to go back to doing things in total dependence on God.”

Many of these people were chased out of churches that were once fiery, Spirit-filled churches that had taken on a new ‘seeker-friendly’ format. They saw their church now focused on church growth, down-playing the presence of the Holy Spirit, and only designed to attract outsiders. They felt punished for wanting a move of God.

They are fed up with the world system—especially when they see it operating in the church.  They can’t stomach the glitzy entertainment centers anymore. They believe we have no time to play games.  They are frustrated that church is catering to the lukewarm members.

They are done with egocentric preachers with grandiose, expensive and carnal visions that having nothing to do with soul winning or revival.  They accuse these preachers of being distracted—even derailed from their first love.   Disciples are abandoning “attraction” churches, and something revolutionary is happening inside them.  God is starting a fresh movement.

David Wilkerson explained more of what he saw coming: “God is revealing to all praying people that a glorious new work of the Spirit is about to break forth. God is going to shake everything that can be shaken. He will tear down the old political, backslidden, ecclesiastical system. He will disown the formal, super-church structure. He will chase out of His presence all who are engaging in self-promoting ministries.”

The praying people he mentions will force changes.  They are a new breed for a new need. They are frustrated, hungry, and their numbers are growing fast.  They are coalescing around certain truths: fasting, repentance, and holy surrender to Christ.

Smith Wigglesworth saw this separation coming way back in 1927.  He predicted the same group of people that  David Wilkerson described: “All the people which are pressing into and getting ready for this glorious attained place where they shall not be found naked, where they shall be blameless, where they shall be immovable, where they shall be purified by the power of the Word of God, have within them a consciousness of the very presence of God within, changing their very nature and preparing them for a greater thing, and causing them to be ready for translation.”

Both men believed that this gathering unto the Holy Spirit would begin after a great falling away.

Wigglesworth said, “We have to see that these days have to come, before the Lord can come. There has to be a falling away. There are in the world two classes of believers. There are believers which are disobedient, or I ought to say there are children which are saved by the power of God which are disobedient children. And there are children which are just the same saved by the power of God, who all the time are longing to be more obedient.”

I know that the moment predicted by these two men is upon us. Every day, I receive another account of frustrated saints who have been suddenly driven to hours of prayer. Many are fasting. A vast number are about to find each other in a true outbreak of holy fire. Millions of believers across America feel they are being separated to the Holy Spirit for some amazing, yet unknown, reason. David Wilkerson talked about a “work” within us. Smith Wigglesworth talked about “pressing in.” The image is clear…the Holy Spirit is stirring souls across the nation. They are done with the overuse of big screens, skinny jeans, and fog machines.

The weapons of our warfare are not carnal! But mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds!

These frustrated saints are being pulled away from fleshly things, even as a spirit of prayer is overtaking them. They are surrendering to a special work of the Holy Spirit. A fresh work of the Holy Spirit has begun, and the impact will soon be widespread in all the earth!

Building something great

I have been pondering these questions:

Can we overcome the evil that is rampant in our times and do something big for God?

Can visionaries still come to the forefront and seize the day?

Can true prophets arise, and speak the heart of God to a dying world?

If you’re looking for a cheap pep talk—a soothing shortcut—or the flattering words of the God-is-our- Daddy Movement—if you think serving God is just a tongues-talking Candy Land game, then save us both time, and ease on back into your cocoon.

But if you look at the present system of church and feel empty—if there is an inner fire that tells you “THIS IS NOT IT!  THERE HAS TO BE MORE!” —you have come to the right place.

Our journey begins with a sad joke.  A mechanically challenged young man who wants to cut some firewood goes into a hardware store.  He asks the store clerk for advice.  After being shown the chain saws, the clerk says, “With a chain saw you can cut entire cords of wood in no time.”  Sold.

The young man returns three days later angry and frustrated. “You told me I could cut cords of wood.  All I got was a few lousy sticks, and this thing is way too heavy to handle.”  Baffled, the clerk grabs the saw, yanks the pullcord and the saw roars to life.  The young man asks, “What’s that noise?”

In the greatest moral war America has ever faced, the church is trying to saw wood with a giant unstarted chainsaw.   To fight that war, our Christian Colleges insist on graduating tepid troops of singing psychologists and grinning marketers.

 Secret Number One:  Separate yourself.   There is a promise in the Bible that is timeless, omnipotent, and unstoppable.  It is a promise that transcends the mad railings of evil men, dark times, and limited resources.  It is a promise that will prevail in any culture, and at any time. Read the promise carefully:

2 Timothy 2:20 “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 21 Therefore, if anyone cleanses (separates) himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. 22 Now, flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”

Those words were not written to some surfer in the 1960’s living in a bubble, but to a young leader embarking on ministry in the midst of the Roman Empire, facing both lash and lions.

Separate yourself from the drunken compromised preachers of today.  Separate yourself from shallow faith.  Separate yourself from those who need “a daily word from the Lord”—turning prophecy into an ecclesiastical horoscope.  Separate yourself from those who want to “activate gifts” without pressing in to know the heart of God.  If you do these things, a great work will have already begun.

 Secret Number Two: Learn practical dependency on the Holy Spirit.  Satan’s best work is not done by atheists, but by misguided Christians.  The devil prizes above all else his ability to get ministers to take matters into their own hands—to build by their own wits—and build the perfect disguise.  The current whited sepulchers are vast empires bearing Christian labels.  These are machines God never built.  They are trophies of hell meant to distract the Body of Christ, and waste time and money.

John 16:13: “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. 15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore, I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.”

What do you see in those verses?  They should both bless and horrify you.  All the authority to build, direct, provide, strengthen and guide the church was vested in the Holy Spirit.  We have offended a precious friend!  We have driven away the very Person we needed most!

The American church thrashes about like a child in a kiddy pool, never guessing what she is doing wrong.  She hired marketers when she could have simply asked the Holy Spirit. She pointed to false success to justify her existence.  We don’t need a superman. We need supernatural men and women filled with the Holy Spirit.

You must be baptized in the Spirit and then learn to be led of the Spirit.

 Secret Number Three: Trust the process. God invented planning. Therefore, the Holy Spirit will give you a plan. The trick is, you can’t take shortcuts. You won’t always see the logic.  And you may grow weary and even come to doubt the sanity of your course.

You won’t be allowed to do things that others get away with.  You will be driven to prayer and into the Word of God over every step you take. You are taking the road least traveled.

Do what God tells you to do, and never stop doing it.  Again: Trust the process.  No matter how your guidance seems to go against the grain, obey His voice!  When you have no money but God says invest it in a vision—do it!  When close associates turn on you—still do it!  Trust the process.  When you face a withering storm of criticism because of your choice, keep going forward.

Follow these three secrets. Then, look around.  You will see people doing mighty works of God in the Earth.  You will see the glaring difference between those who are fueled by the Holy Spirit and those who are not.

But, you ask, “Will these secrets work in this day and age?”  Yes! They always have and they always will!

 

REMEMBER

Remember I told you this. In the next few years a new kind of Christian leader will appear. They will not fit any present mold. They will be the catalysts. They will usher in the next great awakening.

A few of them will be in pulpits. More of them will be politics, business, science, law, and entertainment, music, or a thousand other fields of endeavor.  They will not introduce subjects—they will introduce eras.

No one will be able to buy them off or get them to change the subject. They will operate on a disquieting plane of holiness and consecration. I believe A. W. Tozer was describing them when he said, “they serve God and mankind from motives too high to be understood by the rank and file of religious retainers who today shuttle in and out of the sanctuary.”

Today they suffer. Their agony is what happens when worlds collide. They see their destiny. It’s big and dangerous. A part of them glories in the potential to know God intimately and represent Him bravely. They see themselves rebuking kings, tyrants and warmongers. They see themselves commanding the wealth of the wicked be handed over to the just.

God is warring to save America. You must find your assignment in that war. But how can we know our assignment?

The secret to finding your assignment is your heart. God speaks to the heart and then the heart must control the mind. Today many spirit-filled believers are practicing an unwitting form of new age. They relate to God as if He were a force and not a person.

They think that audacity and confidence will unlock gifts, authority, and direction. They speak of “activating gifts” as if there was a formula to supernatural manifestations. My friend it comes through brokenness, not arrogance. The “force” is a farce.

The Holy Spirit requires everything to come through relationship. Sorry, but Christianity has always been and always will be family owned and operated. So then how can we know our assignment?

Your assignment in the Army of God is your individual expression and extension of Christ’s destruction of the works of the devil. You are a destroyer of the works of the devil. God will give you a way to do it that is unique to you.

Until that gets through to you—until you admit and agree to those terms—God will remain silent about your assignment.
Because the American situation is impossible, only one kind of person will make a difference now. They must be armed with divine certainty. They must own an unshakable, to-the-bone- conviction that they have been chosen for this task.

Without this, we have zero hope of removing the bloody talons of Satan off the throat of our nation. Without it, we are doomed to another embarrassing misfire pawned off as revival.

Next, you must face the fact that very few are supposed to be preachers or pastors. For too long, we have listened to the voice of God through a filter. Whenever God moved someone to serve, we assumed it meant ministry.

This assumption of ministry has sent many to Bible Colleges who didn’t belong there. Worse yet, it has filled pulpits with people who should have never been ordained. This reminds me of why President Woodrow Wilson once said, “One of the proofs of the divinity of the Gospel is the preaching it has survived.”

This filtered view of service is one big reason the church lost influence in our nation. God tried to send people into education, law, medicine, business, art, media and yes, even politics, but we herded them into “Christian service.”

You see it in the Bible. You see it in the stories of heroes of faith throughout history who altered the course of their generation. At the dawn of their mission, God infuses them with incontestable certainty.

This certainty plays a critical role in their survival. Think of it like the escape velocity of a rocket. Escape velocity is one of the biggest challenges of space travel. In order for a rocket to break free of the Earth’s gravitational force it must reach a speed of seven miles per second. That’s 25,000 miles per hour!

Divine certainty blasts the chosen vessel of God past the gravitational force of Satanic attacks, the seduction of fame, withering criticism, and the dark night of the soul that must come to all who are called of God.

Evil convulses at the approach of a new vessel of God. Hell instantly puts chosen ones on a hit list. The child of God must be blasted by divine certainty into a trajectory that will escape the pull of devils, the seduction of fame, withering criticism, and the dark night of the soul that comes to all who are called of God.

From his death bed John Wesley wrote his last letter to encourage Wilberforce. In it he confirms the urgency of divine certainty: “Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be worn out by the opposition of men and devils. But if God be for you, who can be against you? Are all of them together stronger than God? O be not weary of well doing! Go on, in the name of God and in the power of his might…”

Understand this child of God! The same Spirit that is awakening a passion and direction in you is doing the same thing to millions more. Soon an army will emerge that is entrenched in every area of our culture. Today it is sporadic fire here and there, but soon the prophetic core of God will obey and embrace their assignment and come together in a chorus of victory that will be unlike anything we have ever seen.

 

 

Breaking News

Do you know the difference between turning a row boat around and turning an aircraft carrier around. No that is not the opening line to a DAD joke. It is a deadly serious question. Because you see I am in the process of doing that very thing.
To add extra nights to a church meetings is the row boat. You simply announce it and make a few changes in your schedule. Try to guess what the aircraft carrier is?

At this hour, a cloud of something very special hangs or the Marysville and Yuba City areas. Quite simply people are getting born again here night and day. A radiating conviction and draw of the Holy Spirit is felt generally…that means it is not limited to one location or to one time.
A team went to the mall and the first three people they prayed for were instantly healed. Tonight at the tent an Episcopal priest opened in prayer. Testimonies of miraculous healing are coming to us from many directions.
What does it mean? It means an event far and away beyond a good meeting has overtaken us. It means we have no choice but to stay and bring in this historic harvest.

We are moving to the Colusa Casino Stadium

We have no choice but to turn  the aircraft carrier around.  We are taking down this tent and putting up a bigger one. Not only that, we are  moving to a new venue—a baseball stadium. You heard it right—a baseball stadium.
When I began praying for Living Proof California I asked for more than I could imagine. I prayed, “Jesus, the darkness is so deep and the need so vast that we need a surpassing demonstration of your power. Well here it is.

The amount of effort it will take to remove one tent, move to a new site and set up another is only a part of the logistics that we are facing. Now we have the whole town’s attention. Now bigger devils will oppose us. If ever we needed your prayers we need them now!
On the other hand it is time to rejoice for indeed an event—not of this earth has come to the Yuba and Sutter counties.  Rejoice child of God, this is going to be amazing.

WE DON’T START TILL SUNDAY AT 6 PM!

God has already started.  Never have I seen a meeting with this level of anticipation.  The wisdom of the location was utterly confirmed today. “What is this?”  Again, and again we got that question from passersby.  After Joshua Olmos answered one man, he said, I run a recovery home just blocks from here.  I am going to bring everyone in the home to this tent.”

Meanwhile our ringing phones tell another part of the story.  People are braving great distances to be at this meeting—flying in from thousands of miles away—believing for a miracle.

Univision and Spanish radio carry the message of this tent meeting to the Hispanic community.   Pastor Cesar Minera has thrown his considerable influence in the city behind Living Proof Reno.

THE CREW FROM INNER CITY ACTION STOCKTON LAYS OUT THE FLOOR.

This Sunday Morning, the powerful congregation at Spirit Filled Church with Pastor Roger Canary will let me deliver the final marching orders to the army of God.

Is this my last chance to invite you?  Our Living Proof tent crusade starts this Sunday September 23rd at 6PM and then 7PM Monday through Friday September 28th.   Are we expecting many to be saved and healed?  You better believe it!

But here’s the most urgent part of my message to you: Three things will decide the magnitude of this meeting:

1.Prayer: God has chosen to work when we ask. This is the foundation for everything. 

2. The personal invitation: Technology has changed but one thing remains constant…people come because you bring them.

3. Overcoming the myth of distance. I want to spend a extra time on this one. People carried their sick loved ones for days to get to Jesus.  They still do in underdeveloped countries.  Do you live near Reno? I mean within 150 miles.  What is 150 miles in a car when there is the possibility of a miracle?

Mark 6: 55 says, “they ran through that whole surrounding region and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was.” That last phrase says it all!

Under the tent, there will be wonderful music, powerful messages and surprises.  But, the greatest reason to bring people is because we know Jesus will be there.

P.S. All seats are free.  Remember, we’ll start at 6 PM on Sunday and at 7 PM Monday-Friday.  Let’s us pray for those you are bringing for healing or deliverance.  Call us at 775 238 3473   MM
