HATING TRUMP MORE THAN THE VIRUS

Nancy Pelosi held up relief for Americans until she got money for art. Then she turned around and likened President Trump to the Emperor Nero “fiddling while Rome burned”, something that historians believe never really happened. And her accusations are likewise, also made up. Her actual words were, “As the President fiddles, people are dying.” and “Don’t fiddle while people die, Mr. President.”

I will soon explain why that insane remark has gone unpunished.

Pelosi is also deflecting scrutiny away from the fact that it is the Democrat leadership who has acted with callous disregard toward the American people during this coronavirus pandemic. As with the made-up ‘Russia collusion’, and the Ukrainian ‘quid pro Joe’, once again, they are accusing Trump of the very things they are guilty of.

I need to make some points very clear. The first point is the madness of ‘not wanting to look racist’. Democrats both delayed action and fought needed action, because they ‘didn’t want to look racist’. This delirium of ‘wokeness,’ finally, is looking as crazy as it should have looked, all along.

This Covid-19 outbreak should have taught us the madness of open borders, forced diversity, and globalism. But, no: both Bernie and Biden wanted the borders to remain open. And, to this day, neither have advocated for closing them.

They attacked Trump for his travel ban on China, accusing him of racism and xenophobia. Not only this, but after the travel ban, both the health director of Democrat controlled New York City and mayor Bill Di Blasio encouraged people to go out to restaurants and gather in crowds! They especially defended going ahead with Chinese New Year celebrations, so they would ‘not look racist’. This helped spread the virus, and now New York is the hottest hotspot in the nation, with huge numbers infected.

The other point is about Trump hatred. The Left say anything they want against Trump without punishment. No slander is off limits—no question is too stupid, or loaded—no lie is too great, and no accusation too outlandish. Worst of all, no national crisis is too great to shut them up. As long as it is about Trump, it is allowed. And because the news media is in on this practice, journalism is dead in America. 

When it was reported that America was first in the world, leading it with the most cases of coronavirus, Hillary showed her hatred of both Trump and Americans when she tweeted, “Well, he promised, ‘America first’” That obscene remark was widely condemned. But notice how she has not apologized for it. That is because she knows she doesn’t have to, after all, the media will cover for her. Can you imagine that being said about anyone else but Trump?

We are in a national crisis. America historically has put aside partisan malice, and has always rallied behind the Commander in Chief.  Not this time. Hatred for Trump is so sociopathic that even obstructing the President’s efforts to save American lives is allowed. They dragged their feet because they hate him, then they accuse him of dragging his feet, because they hate him.

I am begging America today to see this evil. Ask yourself, “Am I just as guilty of hating Trump as these politicians and leftist journalists are? Is there such a thing as going too far?” “Can any nation survive this kind of hatred?”

But why do they hate him so? They hate him because he won. They hate his victory so much it blinds them to everything else including the pandemic. The idea that he won and keeps on winning dismays them.

That they want to attack him more than they want to attack the coronavirus should utterly outrage you. What else must they do before you realize they are not just Trump’s enemy…they are yours. May God grant us the will to rise to our sacred duty to defeat this virus. And may God grant us the resolve to remember in November who these people are and strip them of their power to hurt us again.

WHY I WILL NEVER COMPROMISE

Mario Murillo Ministries was born different.  From the jump, we faced persecution.   While still in high school, I preached in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, which was ground zero for the ‘love and peace’ movement.  Moving across the bay to Berkeley meant going from the frying pan into the fire.

The instant we hit Berkeley, we had to decide.  What would we preach?  How would we preach it? 

If our message was of human origin, the crucible of Berkeley would have blown it to smithereens.

Instead, unexplained power appeared at each point where the ministry was threatened.  Something supernatural from God would always step in…providing words, resources, ideas and miracles, exactly when we needed them.

Not once in that cauldron of revolution, did we feel the need to rebrand Christ or present a new and improved gospel.

For years, modern pastors, including the Pope, have told us to keep our faith to ourselves and to “tone it down.” This advice cost us a generation of Americans.

We retreated into a cultural bubble. We entertained, amused, inspired, and distracted. We did everything but preach the Gospel.  We did everything but convert Americans.

Worse still, the preaching dumbed-down the average Christian. They were unable to defend their faith. They could not explain God’s view of a ‘one man, one woman’ marriage. They didn’t see the Bible as the inspired Word of God and therefore were scripturally illiterate.

The reason the Church adopted this “indirect approach” was to try to get society to like us. Boy! Did that backfire!  It fueled even greater contempt for the Church.

The media maligns Christians every day.  Atheists call us a threat to human progress.  Secular progressives condemn us as hating the poor, homosexuals, and women.

We’ve seen this before. The same Holy Spirit Who empowered us with wisdom and miracles to face Berkeley will mount a fresh invasion, because God has given us a fresh plan for invading America. But we must do it before it is too late.

The verses below reveal a three-point plan that was given by an angel to the disciples when the church was gravely threatened.

Acts 5:19,   But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and, leading them out, said, “Go, take your stand in the temple courts and declare to the people the whole teaching concerning this Life” (the eternal life which Christ revealed.)

Using those simple words, the Holy Spirit has commanded me to do three things.

1. Take a stand. We cannot judge other ministries. We can only answer for what God has asked us to do. He has ordered us to take a stand.  There is no confusion about what the angel was asking the men of God to do.  He was telling them to stake-out their ground in their nation.  This is not just a physical act; it is also moral and spiritual. We must take a stand against Satan’s agenda for America and we must take a stand for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We, all of us who believe, belong in the national conversation.  America has a drug, divorce, suicide, anger, and atheism problem. We carry the cure for everything that is hurting America.  The angel reinforced to the disciples that their message was both valid and urgent.

2.Take your stand in the temple courts. The temple courts were the heart of Jerusalem. The angel is unambiguously instructing them to raise their voices in the very center of their culture. Our message should not be hidden in religious safe zones.

In that same way, we must go where the biggest lies are being told.  The angel gave them an exact location where they were to take their stand—and that location told the Apostles: God is serious about making a difference in the culture.

3.Tell all of the words of this Life. What a scathing rebuke to popular Christianity! While Christian celebrities scurry to and fro to find buzzwords to replace the core doctrines of the Bible, here is an angel telling the disciples that they must tell all the words of Life.  They cannot leave out one single benefit or command from the message of Jesus Christ.

How right that angel was.  There is Life in those words.  There is Life in the blood of Christ, the cross, and the resurrection.  There is Life in them so amazing that no mountain of eloquence or cunningly devised sermon can begin to match.

We disavow the notion that we should tone down the Gospel. We must tell all the words of eternal Life! Not a message condemning men to hell, but a clear and loving warning to escape not only eternal hell, but the hell they are in right now.

Millions are innocent bystanders. They have not rejected Christ.  They are just caught in the middle. They only hear the haters who make up the secular media who tell lies skillfully, while the church tells the truth badly.

Let us take supernatural miracles to these millions!

Let us bear the offense of the Cross of Christ!

Let us proclaim the glory of His Resurrection!

Supernatural power will overtake what we preach.  Our results will greatly surpass the results of popular preaching.  Society will not balk at Jesus’ requirement of total commitment, because they will see mighty breakthroughs in their souls, minds, and bodies.

There will be neither compromise nor lack of power in our Tent. Our God will grant a flood tide of miracles that will overflow the Tent and become the river through the heart of California, and then, America.

In Chico, Roseville, Modesto, Fresno, McFarland and Bakersfield, we will take a stand in the heart of each city, and tell all the words of this life! I hope you will come and join us!

 

 

 

 

 

CHRISTIANS WILL NOW FACE WOUNDED ANIMAL LEFTISTS

 

In Obama’s State of the Union Address in 2013, there was a boatload of lies. Not the least of which were, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,” and, “Your healthcare costs will go down.” Now, can you imagine the media firestorm that would have ensued if the Republican Speaker of the House had ripped up that speech?

And imagine the outrage if conservatives everywhere had tweeted obscenities and death threats when Obama was elected, or when he was awarded the Nobel Prize.

However, the disaster we face today goes far beyond this epic double standard. You have heard that Nancy Pelosi ripped up Trump’s speech out of frustration. The media has reported that she regrets giving in to the pressure to impeach Trump that was put on her by the radical fringe of her party. Both of those theories are wrong. It is very obvious that she regrets nothing.

Democrats don’t believe they make mistakes. They don’t believe they have done anything wrong, and worst of all, they don’t believe they have been defeated—they will never admit defeat.

Even after the Iowa Caucus debacle, they see no reason for soul searching—because they have no soul to search. They know they are incapable of running the country. They know they have no plan for America, but they don’t care.  Leftists in America are now wounded animals. They are now driven by hatred and blind rage.

When you catch them lying, they don’t care. When you prove their folly, it no longer matters. They will not listen to anyone who is centrist or recommends they stop the endless investigations, or their screaming vituperation.

Nancy was sending a signal to leftists everywhere that moderation is out the window. Rules are gone. Laws don’t matter to them anymore. Her pre-planned, video-captured, under the table surreptitious pre-tearing of the speech, was a declaration of war.

The Left in America will now totally disregard decency, precedent, and the Constitution—even though it will ultimately bring about their own self-destruction.

Nancy has not only given in to the radical wing of her party, she will lead it, as they unabashedly push for a scorched-earth policy against Trump, evangelicals, and conservatives. All pretenses at civility are gone forever. The gloves are off.

Consider this: The House of Representatives is about to introduce a bill called ‘The New Way Forward Act, H.R. 5383’. This bill will make it impossible for an illegal, even one who commits murder, to be deported. It will completely strip I.C.E. of any authority to arrest any illegal who commits a felony. You, the taxpayer, will also be required to pay for their health coverage. Finally, ‘The New Way Forward Act’ will make it a law that all of the 450,000 illegals who have been deported must be returned to the United States, and you will pay for it. Estimates are that the plane tickets alone will cost one billion of your tax dollars. Read the bill yourself.

https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/5383/text

Why would they do such a thing, you may ask? Ask yourself, rather, Why would the Democrat Party want to bring in 450,000 new voters, who would be likely to vote for them?

And, why would Pete Buttigieg go on The View and defend a woman’s right to kill her baby even after it is born? He knows there is a recent trend away from abortion. After all, he is supposed to be the rational candidate. He did it because the Left is now a wounded animal, and they are doubling-down on their policies.

Joe Biden will soon drop out, because he represents the old guard. He is playing catch-up, and trying to sound radical, but it is too little, too late.

Hear me child of God. I am trying to tell you truthfully what I believe you must do in the face of this wounded animal. It is a time to discern the works of the evil one, and to fervently seek the face of God.

What is God doing in this situation? There are two possibilities: He is either using the Left to bring judgment on America and the church—or He is driving the Left to an extreme that will cause our nation to finally and fully reject the atheistic immorality known as Liberalism, which has been a cancer on our culture.

I pray the Lord is using this situation to provoke us to true repentance and revival. I am holding to the hope of revival.

When Nancy very publically tore up that speech, any chance of compromise with Democrats was gone. Maybe you are still queasy about President Trump. Believe me, the insanity you are about to see from the Left will soon cure that. Maybe you are waiting to make a decision about where you will stand…I’d say it has already been decided for you.

The time to act is now. Get everyone you know registered to vote, seek the face of God, and prepare for battle!

 

California’s 2020 Wake up call

President Trump was right to give Gavin Newsom an ultimatum.  The people of California are suffering from a plague of addictions, homelessness, and lawlessness that has reached critical mass.  However, God is also issuing a wake- up call to the Golden State. He is shaking, purifying and rebuilding. God-haters beware! You who have your hearts set on a fully secular, socialist state that has no place for the church of the Lord Jesus Christ, know this: God is even now rolling up His sleeves to do a work—a work of extremes.

This impending act of God will consist of two things: joy and terror. Watch as those who shake their fists at God find themselves fighting against God—and losing that fight!  I say to you: God will take away your sleep. He will remove your arrogance. He will defeat your most trusted weapons. He will take down your secret tactics. He will turn the tide of public opinion against you.

These are the days of Elijah! This is California’s reckoning with truth and righteousness. God has surveyed the cities. He has heard and heeded the cries of His intercessors, and God has had enough of what they are doing to our children.

The roar of the words of the Psalmist is heard on high: “It is time for You to act, O God, for they have regarded Your word as void.” (Psalm 119:126)

It is only one tent, but what has happened under this tent in 2019 matters very much. Yes, the sick have been healed. Yes, the lost have charged into the Kingdom. But, in addition, a mighty army has formed. I have looked into their eyes and I have seen the fire of God blazing in them.

They are a new breed of believer—the kind that multiplies faster than anyone can know, and who will reach out with power like no Christians before them. They are ready. They are coming.  And, they will multiply in numbers unseen since the days of Azusa Street and the Jesus Movement.

God’s wake up call to the God-haters is simple: You have held sway over California for too long and your days are numbered, and your agenda is coming to an end!

But God’s wake-up call to the church in California is even greater.

God is saying to every pastor in the state: “Stand your ground. Stay on message. Hold on, for fire is about to fall on the smaller churches, the hungry churches.”

Though you be not many in size, His watchword to you is: “STAY!” Don’t give the cities away. Don’t sell out and move to a “safer” state.

You are not just to stay, but to make signs and wonders your weapon to stem the tide of evil. Let miracles flow. Preach a pure message—a message that God can crown with miracles.

Not only do we believe we should stand our ground, but as you can see from the map, we are investing more than ever in California. We are going to hold 5 tent crusades in 2020. We don’t want demons to feel at home here anymore. We are declaring that they are to pack up and move out! This is your eviction notice!

Acts 14:3 says, “Therefore they stayed there a long time, boldly in the Lord, Who was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.”

God is saying: Pray the Lord of the Harvest. Matthew 9:37 Then (Jesus) said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

Each night, in every city we have visited, the crowd was amazed to see the river of souls flowing to Christ. It is no accident! We sent out workers. We went into the nests of evil to extract treasures out of the darkness. In 2020 we will double the number of workers—but the church still needs to be jolted awake.

The wake-up call that California’s Celebrity-Christians need is clear: God is not fascinated by your programs or your slick presentations. He is trying to save and deliver millions here who currently writhe in untold misery. Many believers who live here seem think this is someone else’s job. That is why we lost the state in the first place: because we thought someone else was going to do that job.

People mean well when they walk up to me and say, “Mario, you are doing a good work.” I reply, “No, I am not doing a good work…I am doing the work.” This work is OUR work. It is the real work of the church. Everything else is just distraction—something we made up and called it the work.

The Lord of the harvest is sending out laborers into His harvest.  It is time for every believer to arise, wake up, and find their place in this supernatural work in California. The evil that is being worshiped here cannot continue indefinitely. At some point it will implode.  Whatever we are going to do to touch California, we must do now. Pray, and obey the voice of God if He directs you to come and work beside us.  WELCOME TO THE WAR.

 

 

 

 

 

Please note: Our first event will be two days of miracles in Chico, CA, beginning on Sunday, January 26th and ending on Monday, January 27th. These meetings are designed to give the city of Chico a foretaste of what God will do in the Tent. They will be Nights of Miracles!  Please, invite someone who needs to find salvation in Christ or who needs a healing miracle!

 

 

 

A FAR REACHING ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT CALIFORNIA

Back on December 3rd 2019, I told you this: “An astounding door for moral awakening has blown open in California, but I need your help.” The help I was describing was that we needed an edge—an edge over the persecution and intimidation we had experienced.

Let me describe an example. It happened on the first night of one of our crusades. It was in the early afternoon, several hours before we were going to start. An city official came to do a routine walk through. He took a very long time before finally letting us know we could go ahead with the meeting.

This had dragged on so long that the crowd was already arriving and had been forced to stand outside the tent in the cold.  What really hurt, was the thought that there were lost souls—souls who had come after being invited by their friends. I wondered, “How will they handle this inconvenience?”

The delay was so prolonged that we were preparing to hold the meeting, even if the people had to stand outside the tent in the dark field nearby! This harassment was uncalled for. The official even made a veiled threat saying “I will remember anything you say.”

Then, at the last possible moment, we were given permission to go ahead. But they told us they would be back the following night, and we realized that the second night of meetings was still in jeopardy. Sure enough, the next night, we were again not given permission to start until right before meeting time.

Thank God for Frank Saldana! He had the patience and wisdom to deal with this, and to act instantly meeting every demand. I stayed in the prayer closet. By God’s mercy, it all worked out, and we enjoyed an effective and historic tent crusade.

But believe me, this was not the only city where we encountered resistance. It wasn’t until later that it became clear that there was a weakness in our plans which made us vulnerable to all this abuse.

So, I decided, “THIS IS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN AGAIN!”  I asked the Lord for a miracle—a miracle that would remove the weakness in our plans and nail the door shut on the enemy. But it was something so big that Jesus was the only One I could tell about it.

The miracle that I asked for would not only shut the door on the enemy, it would open the door to win many more souls. Now I can tell you what it is. Why? Because the miracle has happened!

I asked Jesus to give me enough money to be able to pay off all the rent, all the bills associated with permits, licenses, legal fees and reimbursable charges—all in advance. I am talking tens of thousands of dollars above and beyond our budget.

To top it all off, I told the Lord that I would not tell you about it. That’s like Elijah pouring water over the sacrifice before calling down fire. I needed to know with absolute certainty that it was the perfect will of God for us to return to California for more meetings. Here’s what has happened…

EVERY BIT OF THE MONEY WE NEEDED HAS COME IN!  And, it came in without telling anyone but God. Now we have locked in all five cities and will be able to meet any challenge well in advance.

So again, it is with incredible joy that I announce to you the venues and dates for Living Proof California!

Chico CA: March 15-18, 2020

Silver Dollar Fairgrounds

2357 Fair Street

Chico, CA 95928

 

Roseville, CA: April 19-22, 2020

Fresno, CA 93702

 

McFarland, CA: September 13-16, 2020

501 West Perkins Avenue 

McFarland, CA 93250

 But this miracle does something even more important. Remember that I said, “An astounding door for moral awakening has blown open in California”?  Part of that is: Without these distractions we can send the army of Light into the habitations of devils. We can pull treasures out of darkness. We can march through this door that has blown open among the lost. We can turn our focus and energy into the most widespread miracle-evangelism California has seen in decades. That is why I said this is a far-reaching announcement.

But it gets even bigger than this. Remember, in a previous letter I said that while we were doing a tent crusade we couldn’t announce the next one? That was because at the time we didn’t know if there would be a next one. This resulted such a delay that, when we did finally know, we were always rushing to invite the lost to the tent. Now we can recruit workers because they have advanced notice to arrange time away from jobs and nail down housing. Plus we get to spend valuable time in the surrounding neighborhoods. You can see why this extra time is priceless.

But there is still more! We have added a new weapon for these tent crusades. They are called Nights of Miracles. The Holy Spirit ordered me to plan nights in a local church at least 30 days before the tent goes up. The goal is to give the city a sample of the power and glory they can expect in the tent. This has already worked amazingly well in both Fresno and Hanford. Now we will do Nights of Miracles in all five cities!

Our first Night of Miracles will take place in Chico, California on Sunday night, January 26th at 6 p.m. followed by Monday night, January 27th at 7 p.m. These meetings will be held at Jubilee on the Ridge Church at 2201 Pillsbury Rd., Chico, CA 95926. This is the first event of Living Proof California 2020.

Did you know that over 1.1 million people now know about the tent on the Highway 99 corridor of Glory? But we don’t just need people knowing about it, we need soldiers. There are so many opportunities for you to serve. And don’t think you live too far away! Folks from as far away as Canada are coming here to help us.

Above everything, pray for us! Whether you just pray or if you want to come and help reach the lost in California, sign up using the link below. I have been excited about many things in my life, but this California outreach next year carries a special excitement!

Please, use the link below, and get involved in Living Proof California. God bless you!

IT ISN’T STOPPING OUR NATIONAL DISASTER

Why does the American Church think she is successful?  Her outward success hasn’t even tapped the brakes of our impending national disaster.  I wish I could say we had stopped the flood of filth and addiction.  I’d even be happy if I could say we had slowed the flood.  But no, as the flood rises, we take pride in how well we can keep people safe and dry in artificial arks of glass and stainless steel.  We celebrate things that are utterly irrelevant in the disaster that is even now at the door.

Across America, countless gleaming Christian campuses churn out activity at a dizzying pace.  Millions of dollars change hands to fuel methods that have zero impact on the enemy. The machine is manmade and utterly useless before the demonic principalities that are tearing our nation apart, limb from limb.

What right does this multi-faceted machine have to say it is effective?  What result can it point to as an example of victory over evil?

The ‘outward-success-machine’ that men have built is not of the Holy Spirit.  It runs on toxic fuel.  Every day we witness the toxicity evidenced in the tragedies of celebrity leaders who are crashing and burning. Why, you ask?  Because this fuel can neither feed the soul of a preacher, nor can it replenish their spirit.

Too many ministers are conditioned to drawing life and self-worth from the adulation of the crowd, instead of receiving fulfillment, power and peace from a life of prayer.  As a result, instead of living in the presence of Jesus and beholding His face, they have grown an unnatural heart that is capable of celebrating hollow successes that they should be ashamed of.

They are thrilled when thousands come to hear them, when they should be crying out in agony.  It is a destructive talent indeed to be able to gather thousands and leave them untouched by conviction.  Few, if any, ever repent under the influence of their ‘seeker friendly’ sermons—a repentance that could have been the budding of the first leaf toward a national awakening.

The devil doesn’t respect personality, human initiative, or feel-good sermons. He only respects the anointing.  He does not stop advancing in the face of concocted-Christianity.  But Satan is absolutely paralyzed before a word that issues forth in power and anointing directly from Jesus, Who is the Head of the Church—the devil only flees before a rhema word that is launched by a pure and anointed member of Jesus’ body on Earth, the Church.

Nothing fits our current condition better than the picture I am about to portray:

Jesus is seated on a donkey, the traditional manner in which the kings of Israel announced their reign.  He is on His way from the Mount of Olives toward Jerusalem.  A roar of adulation not heard since King David returned from a victorious battle shakes the great city. The masses are saying all the right things, “Hosanna! Save us now!  Blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord!”  The roar is so great that the Jewish religious leaders implore Jesus to tone down the masses.  He tells them that if He did, the very rocks would cry out.

All of His disciples and core believers must have thought, “This is it.” They have been secretly hoping that Jesus is about to set up an earthly throne, conquer the Romans, and return Israel to its former glory. But strangely, even as the joy of the crowd is overwhelming, Jesus begins to weep.  He knows this is too little, too late.

Luke 19:41, “Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it, 42 saying, “If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, 44 and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”

The roar of our concerts; the glitz of our technology; the grandeur of our meeting places, our modernization of prayer, and even our New Age-like fascination with the gifts of the Holy Spirit is all a shallow grave.  It has the trappings of being of God, without the engine of God driving it.

By what authority do we claim that ‘church-incorporated’ has the power to save America?  Please enlighten me.  I am all ears.  Moreover, if my words offend you, but they don’t even move you to check your heart, doesn’t that alone bespeak our tragedy?

America will not be saved by shallow thrill seekers. Satan laughs at the antics that distract us in this hour as we stagger toward disaster. But is it also too little too late for us?

But wait…what is that I hear?  I hear a rumble—so faint at first.  YES!  It is the sound of a mighty God Who will not share HIS GLORY WITH ANY MAN!  He would save America His way!  He is at this moment rolling up His sleeves to intervene, and in a most embarrassing way—a way that will bring people we don’t like, who are doing things we didn’t expect, in the places we had written off…

I am addressing those who are, or who desire to be, honest vessels of God: Take heart, you who have been forgotten—you who have been run over by the tractors of Church-incorporated.  Our heavenly Father has not forgotten you, far from it!  He is right now preparing to grant power, fire and miracles! Hallelujah!

 

Mario has a new book! Listen to what Pastor John Kilpatrick, who led the Pensacola Revival, said about Mario’s  book:
“As I read the manuscript for Mario Murillo’s new book, Vessels of Fire and Glory, I said to myself, “Finally!” Mario has measured the church and the nation in this season and did not hold anything back. His honesty is like the sun rising inside a dark cave. This release is a paradox—it is sobering and refreshing; it is symptoms and the cure. I believe this revivalist has penned a treatise that should be in the hands of all who lead the work of God.”
Mario’s new book will awaken you to your assignment in God’s work to save America. It’s $15 each or $12 for ten or more. Get a signed copy plus free shipping by clicking here.  https://mariomurillo.org/product/vessels-of-fire-glory/
