I SEE

A miracle is coming to the Central Valley of California.

That is an astonishing thing for anyone to say, for several reasons. Not long ago, five cities in the Central Valley made the list of the Top Ten Worst Cities in America.

Why I believe a miracle is coming:

The good people of this region have been hit by everything you can imagine, including drought, foreclosures, drug addiction, gang violence, massive homelessness, and breathtaking political abuse by Sacramento.

When California received $410 million in 2012 as part of a nationwide settlement with major banks accused of abusive foreclosures, Gov. Jerry Brown used $331 million of that money to pay state agencies in housing and other programs in order to cover their deficits.  Kamala Harris knew about this but kept silent. Now California has lost a lawsuit, and this money must be paid out to the victims.

The Central Valley was not even on my radar. Five years ago my bags were packed to move out of California. I was moving away and thinking, “Maybe it is time to pass the mantle on to someone else, and retire.” Then my nation went crazy.

That is when the dream was given to me—a life changing dream.

The dream happened during an afternoon nap between services in Stockton. I believe that this dream was meant to encourage the people of that city. Especially because of what was in the dream.

It was the kind of dream that I tell people they need to handle with caution. In the dream I was suspended high above California, and I could clearly see Highway 99, all the way from Red Bluff to the end of 99 at Laval Road in Arvin, California.

Suddenly, as I watched, Highway 99 was transformed and became a river! Trees started popping up on the banks of the river. The voice of the Lord said, “This highway shall be a corridor of my Glory.”

Five years pass, and I am invited on the TruNews Network with Rick Wiles. Next thing I know, he has donated an 8,000 square foot, brand spanking new tent, as well as 1,000 chairs from the luxury boxes of an NFL stadium. What a miracle!

God then revealed to me that this tent was to move south and follow Highway 99, and that the river I had seen would flow in the tent, healing innumerable sicknesses and would bring in a massive harvest of souls.

 

Now, here we are—watching the fulfillment of that dream. Indeed, the river has flowed south from Marysville, CA, then through Paradise, CA and the current intensified in Stockton. Now we are watching the unimaginable as the river is about to reach to Dinuba, Hanford and Fresno.

As I write this to you, thousands of people are experiencing an amazing dealing of God in these cities. There is something in the air—it is vibrating with hope and faith.

People like to use the expression: ‘something has shifted,’ but that feels woefully inadequate to explain the unity that is emerging among leaders—the expectancy in the people—and the acceleration that seems to be coming.

With all my heart, I know we are about to hit the mean streets in these cities and pull treasures out of darkness. We are about to feed the masses of poor and unsheltered.

Nothing will be able to stop the explosion of praise that will erupt when the miracles, that I know are coming, arrive.

 

Why am I telling you this? In order to fulfill this dream, we need workers. Why not join in something so wonderful that if Jesus tarries, people will be talking about it 30 years from now?

Many people have asked me, “What kind of workers do you need?” My question back to you is, “What do you want to do? Do you want to hit the streets and watch gangsters delivered? Do you want to help organize a statewide night of prayer in Chukchansi stadium? Do you want to be an usher in any of the services? Do you want to pray with those who come to Jesus?

“Do you want distribute food and clothing in homeless camps? What about helping with our massive children’s outreach in Fresno in November? Are you willing to give up your Thanksgiving Day?”  On that day, we will conduct a complete miracle service, followed by a sit-down dinner for a thousand people.

If you come to the Night of Miracles in Hanford, you will see the true fire and miracles of Jesus. If you come to six nights under the tent in Dinuba, you will see God rock an entire city. If you join the thousands at Chukchansi Stadium, you will feel the power of prayer like you have never felt it in your life.

Start by praying. Even if you are reading this from Wellington, New Zealand, the Gold Coast of Australia, or even Cape Town, South Africa, you can pray! Start now.

I promise you, a river of life will end up flowing out to you!

THE BIGGEST ANNOUNCEMENT

At last, I can tell you. The Holy Spirit has pushed back the veil further than I have ever seen it before. I have had an amazing encounter with Jesus. It began when this verse exploded in my soul:

Psalm 103:7 “He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel.”

He made it clear that he is leading me to understand a principle of war: Long range penetration. This is what God showed Moses. God limited Israel to just seeing His external acts, but He gave Moses purpose and understandinglong range planning and penetration. God gave Moses the “why” behind His acts. Moses was seeing God’s character, and how His character operated in the eternal purposes of God.

I have told you about my dream and my commission to take the tent south along Highway 99. But now I am seeing something spectacular. We are supposed to dig deeper into several areas in the valley, both in and around Fresno. We are not to have just one outreach—we are to stage FOUR MAJOR EVENTS.

Let’s review: Fresno and the surrounding area are quite literally devastated. Gangs and drugs have turned vast neighborhoods into war zones where innocent people cower in fear inside their homes. Not only this, but the homeless camps are vastly expanding. Over ten thousand people here are living outdoors.

Fresno is the future for every city in California if there is no miracle. Thank God! I believe there will be a miracle.

The massive amount of drugs that are flooding into California are being hoarded in many of the small towns surrounding Fresno. These little towns are the staging areas for the distribution of narcotics.  I would not even write about this if it were not for the fact that we have encountered it firsthand, and because God has sent His angels to protect me and my workers.

Here are the four parts of the biggest announcement I have made in over 20 years.

1. Dinuba: October 6-11 the crusade tent will be in Dinuba California. We have received amazing favor here. In fact, 500 people showed up for a rally to kick off promotion of the tent crusade. The city has given us use of the most prized piece of ground: the site of their new high school. Every single resident, addict, gang member, and homeless person in Dinuba is going to get a witness! Do not even think of missing Living Proof Dinuba!

2. The city wide Night of Miracles in Hanford, California: the date and location will be announced soon. Hanford is going to experience a great harvest of souls. Many leaders in that city are already primed to help us get it done. Just as God moved last Sunday night in Fresno, it will be that way in Hanford! This event will lead to the Living Proof Hanford Tent Crusade.

Okay I can’t just give you the next part of this, without taking a deep breath…

3. October 20th: The California State Wide Night of Prayer in Grizzly Stadium, Fresno.  That right! We’re talking the Professional Baseball Stadium where the Fresno Grizzlies play.  It is going to be a night of prayer over the entire State of California. Please, join thousands of believers from all over California and America for a prayer explosion. In that rally, we will call out to God to heal our land and we will command devils to pack up and get out! Think of it: On this night we will take a stand between heaven and earth to break the grip of despair, addiction, crime, perversion, atheism, socialism, and evil in the mighty name of Jesus! California shall be saved!

4. Living Proof Fresno Tent Crusade November 24-28th.   Yes, you read it right! The crusade is going to continue right up until Thursday, Thanksgiving Day!  .  We will be working in the neighborhoods in the months prior, inviting young people who are bound in darkness to come to the tent. We will be giving away the most food, clothing, and shoes we have ever given away. It will be literally tons of gifts for the poor.  And think of it, we are going to give away 500 bicycles!

Each night will be saturated with Holy Spirit power on gang members, addicts, and the homeless. We are even yearning for Christians to come and get fired-up as never before. But Thanksgiving Day will be an indescribable act of God.

We are planning on having at least 1,000 people to sit and have Thanksgiving dinner with us! We hope to set up not one, but 3 tents, and have miracle services in all three!

That, my friend, is why I call this the greatest announcement I have made in over 20 years.!

And, by the way: You don’t want to know how much this will all cost. What you do want to know is that there has been a miraculous outpouring of support through the generous readers of this blog. Our war chest has enough in it to set all of this in motion. Even the Stadium is already paid for! Of course we are going to need much more, but thank God for all we are able to do right now!

My final exhortation to you is this. Many believers limit prayer by simply praying that the lost will be saved. That falls way short of what our Lord and Master taught. He did not pray for souls to want God. He said they already do—that is not where the shortage is.  The shortage is in workers. Read these verses with that in mind.

Matthew 9:36: “But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He 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.”

We need workers! I know you will want to work on this amazing event. So I need you to do one of these two things, right now…

GOD BLESS YOU! WE ARE HEADING INTO AMAZING TIMES! 

GOD FALLS ON FRESNO

MARIO MURILLO REPORTS: It is Sunday, August 11th at 5:30 P.M.  The church is surrounded in all directions by parked cars. As the sun began to set, the oppressive heat broke.  It is not just soothing, it feels like a sign. It feels like God has remembered Fresno. It feels like God is on the verge of breaking another kind of oppression.

Look at the faces. You will see a determination. You will see faith. There is great expectation! The sick have come to be healed. It is an emotional scene watching people tenderly assist family, friends and loved ones into the rapidly filling seats. Eyes gleam with their unspoken confession, “TONIGHT IS MY NIGHT!”

It’s now 5:50. The building is packed. Workers had to race to a nearby church to borrow extra chairs. We add almost 200 chairs, it’s still not enough. People are forced to stand against the walls. Now it’s a turn-away crowd. We start the meeting immediately.

Pastor A. J. Nunes stands up, and things bust open as he prays a thunderous prayer. Then the worship team begins their job of lifting us into the glories.  Chris Poe and his team from the Bridge of Marysville light up the crowd. The people are lost in worship. They sing with an intensity that is at once awe-inspiring and convicting.

Our original plan was for this night to be a taste of what they would experience in the tent, and to rally them to work with us to fill the tent.  God had other things in mind! This crowd—this power—this towering glory and presence of God far exceeds anything we could have planned.

This was not a ‘good meeting.’  What was happening was not limited to this one building. This was God falling on Fresno!

With each note that they sang, their faith grew. With each song, their passion for more of Jesus intensified.

Meanwhile, I am waiting on God to know when I should start preaching. I am torn. The people are getting power, life, and refreshing from the Lord. Years and years of prayers are being answered. Pastors are being drenched, and faith is reaching a fever pitch. How can I interrupt this?

The worship is doing exactly what Jesus said it would do. “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.”  (John 12: 32). Those that came needing healing for their soul, watched their excuses die. They felt it, as the chains of addiction were being shattered. Their reluctance and resistance against the touch of God had vanished.

Finally, seeing their hunger and need for Christ, I knew it was time to preach. My message was entitled, “If you have to ask.”  In a nutshell, I said that California was not stolen by the devil, rather—the Church had given California away.

I said, “If you are a pastor and you have to ask why we must oppose the leftist agenda—if you are a believer and you have to ask God if you should seek revival—if you believe you have to ask before you speak out and challenge the devil’s hold on this State…then you are messed up.”

Now the miracles began to happen. I will never forget the blanket of power that came over me. It was no longer I who was ministering. It was as if I had ceased to exist or to have an opinion in this matter. Words were coming forth from me with power. People in the crowd were ordered to stand and then details only God knew were spoken to them, igniting faith for their healing. The Holy Spirit was pouring forth such a mighty river of life, truth and healing, that I was finding it difficult to keep up with Him.

After several were healed, I turned around and felt a demonic resistance behind me. I was standing before a woman and her husband. I knew she was being healed, but from what, at first, I could not determine. I was foggy from the evil that was opposing me. Then I knew! Witchcraft had dared to be here tonight to challenge the move of God. I warned the individual they had no power in this place. The resistance was obliterated and instantly I knew that the woman before me was battling cancer.  I knew there were multiple tumors…but mostly, I knew she was being healed. GLORY TO GOD!

I spun around and charged over to a young man far to my right. He was told to stand. He was told that his liver was diseased and Hepatitis C was ravaging his body. He thrust his arms in the air and gave a mighty roar that told everyone this was true. Then the power of God surged through his body.

I stormed across the church again, and the Lord brought me to a screeching halt next to a little lady. “You are a rascal,” I said to her. She smiled in agreement, and the crowd laughed. I could see the walker and the agony in her legs. I told her, “Being a rascal is going to help you tonight. I want you to wait and not get anyone’s permission. When the power of Jesus hits you, get up and walk, no matter what anyone else thinks.”

Miracle upon miracle came graciously from the throne of God.  It was staggering to see how long healing virtue flowed onto the people. Then I made the call for new life. All ages, races, and backgrounds filled the front.

I looked down and saw the lady I had called a rascal, standing there praying the sinner’s prayer. She was thrilled to be healed and out of pain, but infinitely more thrilled to receive Jesus.

What more could we have asked?

Let me add just one more thing. We instructed all who were at the altar to prepare to receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. A young man about 16 years old burst out in tongues—his heavenly language filling the whole building. Then, one after another, others joined him in receiving the Holy Spirit.

I solemnly warn you. This is only the beginning of the Nights of Glory that will soon be coming to Dinuba, Hanford, and Fresno.

Tomorrow I will be making the biggest announcement I have made in 20 years! So stand by!

Help Me

Your time is valuable, so I will get right to the point. I am writing to you about an unheard of opportunity to win souls in California—an opportunity that did not come about overnight. We won this opportunity because we persevered against the greatest demonic attacks we have ever faced.  I must tell you upfront that I am going to ask for your help because this is a once in a lifetime situation.

Only once before in the entire 7 year run of this blog have I ever asked for help this way. Here’s the story:

When we began taking our tent through California, we practically had to use a crowbar to get permits, tent sites, and church support. There were times in Marysville, Paradise, and Stockton when I was barely able to stand because of fatigue from the withering warfare.

We endured some strange trials. In Marysville I felt a hand on my back push me, as I went up the steps to the stage. The result was a badly sprained calf muscle that I had to stand on for the next several hours. The pain was special. Thankfully, the Lord touched me, and I recovered far faster than the predicted 6 weeks.  In Stockton, the vehicle of one of our leaders was hit by a stray bullet.

We contacted church after church. Some helped us, others ignored us. We were told how futile and dangerous it was to pitch our tent in the worst parts of town. City officials either loved us, or hated us. I’ll let you guess what we got more of. We have fought every devil in hell, as we worked our way down Highway 99.

I held onto the promise that came to me in a dream, that this was a corridor of God’s Glory. I knew that above all else, we had to complete the crusade in Stockton.  I was convinced that if we just did that, then everything would begin to turn, so we held on!

Now, everything has changed. Reports of many being saved, and of notable healing miracles, has gone before us. Now we have more open doors than we can possibly fulfill.  This presents us with a whole new problem. For the first time I can see this touching the entire State of California.

The crowds will be bigger. The altar calls will be bigger. When this happens, the costs don’t go up gradually, it’s more like when you throw a rock into a pond and the ripples spread out. Expenses increase in every direction.

We need to retain and train workers quickly. We need to get Bibles, follow up material, food, clothing and new equipment.

Every military manual contains this same warning: when you have the enemy on the run, you don’t let him regroup. This door that was so difficult to pry open, will not stay open very long. We must seize this key moment.

Some might say that we always seem to need more resources. To that I say, we are a soul saving ministry. Tragically, that is a rare thing these days—which explains the mess our nation is in. We haven’t won enough souls!

We are not a business—we are a ministry. If provisions come in, they most go out.  We are not a club—we are an army. An army must use its supplies. It can’t sit on them.

Now let me talk to you about the most important door of all.

Fresno is the key: During our entire tour, one thing has been in the back of my mind: Fresno. I knew that we were on a collision course with this city. I knew more than anything, Satan did not want us here. Just as D-Day was the turning point in World War Two, Fresno is our D-Day.

This city which is ravaged by drugs, gang violence, and homelessness, is a gateway city. It holds the key to reaching the rest of California. The Holy Spirit needs to be poured out here.  There needs to be a core of workers who will brave very dangerous territory, as they bring the Word of God.  We are more than justified in spending as much time and money in this town as in all our other tent crusades combined.  Think of that!

 

That is why we are finalizing a contract to use Chukhansi Stadium in Fresno.  And that is one reason why I am writing to you. Fresno holds the key to our next level in California. A victory here, will multiply what we do next. A set back here will be a clear threat to our momentum.

Yes, I am going to ask for your help, but first I want to tell you some very important facts.

The anti-American Left is targeting the young people in our inner cities. Their insidious lies work on the young impressionable minds of our children.  Social media is leftist. The damage the left has done takes your breath away. They have dominated education, media, and virtually all youth culture.

The curse of the Left is keenly felt in the inner city, where a hatred for America and for Israel is widespread. This is alarming for more than just the obvious reasons. It is a disaster for the cause of freedom and for the church in America.

California is the matrix for this wicked ideology. God sent us here first of all to lead youth to Jesus. But along with that, is our mandate to expose the lies that poison our children’s minds. Of course they need to have their minds renewed by Christ first, but after that, they need to be shown that America is not evil, and that by loving Israel, it blesses America.

In the tent, you will hear me preach the pure Gospel, beginning at the Cross. However, after that we attack the legislated immorality which Democrats have force-fed these innocent minds. But, by no means are we a political rally. I preach from the Bible! Judges 2:10, warns America, “and there arose another generation that knew not God, neither the things that He had done for Israel.”

California has the power to destroy America’s freedom:  If this truth were known, every church in the United States would be backing us, and every believer in America would be praying and supporting us. That’s how vital our mission to California is for this nation.

 

The agenda that is oozing out of California is out to destroy every value you and I hold dear. If California leftists with their billions get their way, it will result in a horror for which there are no words. Democrats will create chaos and tyranny. Ignoring this will condemn your children and grandchildren to live in a world that is too terrible to describe. Worst of all, you won’t be there to protect them. 

Signs and wonders must accompany the preaching: The drugs, the lies, and the hatred are so thick that our crowds are beyond words.  By that, I mean that the demonic power which is blinding them, cannot be broken with words alone. That evil power must be broken, as God confirms His words with signs following.

That is why I am daily before God, seeking to surrender, in order to bring a new level of power in our tent meetings.

Again, I never ask for money on my blog. This time I must because the alternative is too terrible to describe.  But the wonderful part is that we can do the impossible!

I am asking for you to give me war bonds. That is exactly what they are! We are in a war for the very soul of a nation. We have been invaded by God-hating forces that will not back down. Our only choice is to follow our victorious Lord—the Lion of Judah, into this battle.

You know what is at stake. You know why I am asking. You know I will buy the tools and ammunition for total victory against the devil.  I am praying and believing that the Holy Spirit will move you to be bold, generous, and loving in your gift to the Cause of Christ in California.

BOLDNESS

If I listed everything the church was allowed to say ten years ago that she can’t say today, you would be horrified.  Without a miracle, your children and grandchildren will have to survive in a world that will totally ban their faith—and what is even scarier: they will have to face it without you.

It is hard to convince many Christians that they are rapidly losing their First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and freedom of religion.  They either don’t believe it is happening, or they chalk it up to  ‘fake news’ or ‘politics.’  But the erosion of liberty is not only real—it is the greatest threat American Christians have ever faced.

The doctrines of our faith that offend are: the Cross, the Blood of Jesus, the reality of Hell, sexual purity, and marriage.  Preachers who feel the heat from government censorship are already deleting these doctrines from their sermons.  They’ll tell you it’s to reach a bigger audience—but, trust me, it’s the heat.

What can we do to stop the church from being driven underground?   No one who is truly a man or woman of God can seriously entertain the idea that we should stop preaching these truths.  That is not even an option.  What then can we do to reverse this pernicious loss of liberty?

An even better question is: What does God do when a nation tries to silence His church?  The answer came to me suddenly.   Hear me out, it is not what you think.  It is way beyond petitions, or elections.  The revelation I am about to relate to you, struck me with paralyzing clarity. I am amazed I never saw it before.

However, nothing I am about to say will help you, not one point I am making will have its intended impact, unless you have a heart for it.  If you are still in denial about what is happening, I can’t help you—this message can’t help you.  If you think I am dispensing alarmist extremism, then you are just another part of the threat.

But, if you want to hear God’s heart on this crisis—if you hunger for more than half-answers, then you have come to the right place.  You can ask the Holy Spirit the most important question you could ever ask: “What do You do when a nation tries to silence Your church?”

Here it comes:

When the leaders of Jerusalem arrested Peter, they didn’t know what to charge him with or how to punish him.  They knew they had to silence the church.  There was no doubt about their intention.  They were prepared to do anything to stop the Gospel—so what was stopping them?  Answer that, and you will know what the exact marching orders are, that the church needs today.

What was hindering the council members was the glaring presence of the man who came with Peter and John.  This was the crippled beggar who used to sit at the Gate Beautiful.  A spectacular miracle had occurred!  He had occupied the most visible and lucrative begging station in Jerusalem.  Everyone knew him.  Word of his miraculous healing filled Jerusalem, and a mad chorus of praise was rising over the Eternal City.

Their deep consternation is vividly described in these verses: Acts 4:14 “And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. 15 But when they had commanded (Peter and John) to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, 16 saying, “What shall we do to these men? For, indeed, that a notable miracle has been done through them is evident to all who dwell in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it.””

Their profound dilemma was not lost on Peter.  The Holy Spirit had revealed to him the divine solution to government censorship.  Peter had clearly settled on a course of action—the very action we need to take today. It is the action we take in our tent. He left with a battle plan. He was armed with critical information.

He gathered the people of God, and ordered them to pray.  He was about to pray a prayer that is the precise model for our crisis. He faced the same threat we face.  Remember that word: “threat.”

You will recall I told you that nothing good can come to you from my message, unless you see how urgent the hour has become?  Peter began his prayer by calling the situation ‘a threat.’  We must do this, also.

In Acts chapter 4, Peter prayed: 29 “Now, Lord, look upon their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your Holy Servant Jesus.”

Peter is showing us that boldness is essential.  Only boldness will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Not only this, he is forever settling the question of preaching.  Preaching must not leave anything out.  It is by sharing the whole counsel of God, that the church is protected, and able to continue her work.

Next, Peter is admitting that the vehicle for that boldness is signs and wonders.  God must stretch His hand over an angry culture, perform supernatural healings, and overrule the agenda of man.  Such is the case today.  Look at how God answered:

Acts 4:31 “And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.”

Not only were they filled with the Holy Spirit and boldness, but God answered their prayer for miracles.  In the next chapter, the very shadow of Peter was healing the masses. (Acts 5:15-16)

Ignore those who aren’t willing.  Set the time and place to go to homes, houses of worship, schools, offices—anywhere where true prayer can be raised up to God.  Prove this promise and see: the Spirit will fall; you will receive a tongue of fire, and miracles will come.  I am not talking about self-absorbed emotional light touches.  I am talking about undeniable, medically verified, city-shaking divine healings.

And you will see that now, as in that day, no law, no argument, and no politician will be able to silence the church!


COME AND BRING THOSE WHO NEED A MIRACLE TO THIS OPEN DECLARATION AND DEMONSTRATION OF THE POWER OF CHRIST IN FRESNO


 

 

 

Breaking News

Finally, the Holy Spirit has released me to share this news about California with you! The supernatural flow that is carrying us southward down Highway 99 is increasing. The river is gaining speed and the current is growing stronger. Our firepower has been replenished. The momentum is remarkable.

And then, out of the blue, the Spirit of God said to me, “Your next meeting is in Fresno, but your next tent crusade is in little Dinuba, California.” Yeah, that seemed strange to me too!  Where is Dinuba? It is slightly south and east of Fresno, CA. I wondered, “Why are we going there?” God warned me not to let the size of Dinuba fool me.  He said that this city is a spiritual volcano.

Suddenly, we find that we have more favor here than in any other city where the tent has been.  The city has given us the best location possible for a tent crusade—the site where their new High School will be built.  And get this: the city is letting us use the land for free! We already know this will be our greatest tent crusade ever.

Now for another big piece of news:  God has given us a new strategy that we have never had before.  It is called The Night of Miracles.  The Spirit of God spoke very emphatically, “Go to one church in the city, and for one night only, give them the exact same experience they will have under the tent.  Most importantly, God said that from now on, this will be the very first thing you do in a new city.

This was the opposite of what we have been doing. We have not had a miracle rally first. We always laid the groundwork by having a luncheon for pastors and leaders. I had never tried this before. I had to fully trust God that it would work.

We went to Living Word Fellowship in Dinuba. 500 people filled the church. We were all stunned!  Then the Spirit of God broke out on the people, as He demonstrated His power by healing many.  It was as explosive as any previous night where we had held meetings under the tent.

Soon, the wisdom of God’s strategy became blazingly clear: the people had a foretaste of the tent, and they were electrified by the Glory of God! The left knowing exactly what to expect, and could invite friends and loved ones, with incredible expectancy.

Dinuba is set. The tent is going there. When is the Dinuba Living Proof Crusade? I am not going to tell you. Listen carefully.  After Dinuba we are taking the tent to Fresno. I would tell you the date and location but we are finalizing the use of a very strategic location. Living Proof Fresno will be an epic display of the miracles of God and soul winning.

What?? Wait – why? Hold on, let me explain.  I am not telling you, simply because I want you to focus all of your attention on the next announcement I am making.

Even though Dinuba is our next Living Proof Tent Crusade, it is not our next event. The event I want you to focus on, will take place on Sunday August 11th, at 6 PM. We are doing a Night of Miracles in Fresno. That’s right, Fresno. It’s the only night I want you to think about. It is a night where we will be facing demonic power. We know the Spirit of the Living God will stir up intense and deeply entrenched demonic power. For anyone who lives near Fresno, you must come, and you must bring someone who needs a miracle in their body and soul. I am not exaggerating. August 11th is the next demonstration of the Glory of God in our journey south, along Highway 99.

We had originally announced this date for August 4th but my staff needed a break after the World Convention. August 11th is the date!

We expect the windows of heaven to open and pour down upon us a drenching rain of the power and presence of the Holy Spirit.  At the very least, please pray with us for the August 11th meeting.  This Night of Miracles will break open the next phase of the river of God flowing down the Central Valley of California.

This night is not limited to folks from Fresno. I am asking the army of God that has been in all the previous tent meetings to drive down and be a part of this astonishing night.

Remember the location: Sunday, August 11th at 6 P.M., at the Covenant Worship Center, 1461 North Chestnut Avenue, Fresno, CA 97303.

MY CRY

When I warned about a new law in California that will force preachers to agree with the LGBTQ agenda, one lady commented, “The Church is awake and powerful in California.”  A brother responded, “Then why is California going to hell in a hand-basket?”  Ouch.

What I am about to say is a cry, a loving cry to the spiritual leaders of California: Wake up! Please consider what I am about to say, no matter how painful the facts may be.  I am speaking out of a deep love for California. I feel a heavy burden for my home State.

I survey the moral devastation, but then I hear someone boast that the gates of hell will not prevail against the church in California.  I have to ask, “If the gates of hell have not prevailed, then what on earth is going on?  If this isn’t prevailing, I’d hate to see what is!”  The answer, as is so often the case, is to read that verse again:

Matthew 16:18 “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

I am pleading with God for this message to get through to my fellow leaders.  The first clue to what God wants, lies in the phrase, “I will build MY church.”  The problem is that there are two construction projects going on simultaneously in the church: Men are in charge of one, and Christ is in charge of the other.

That these two branches coexist in the Body of Christ is clear in Jesus’ own words:  John 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.”

Both branches are connected to Him, but only one abides in Him.  Both will grow side by side until the appointed time.  It is easy to tell the difference: The churches that men are building don’t stand a chance against Satan, and Satan doesn’t stand a chance against the Church Christ is building. 

Man-made churches avoid the front line, while the one true Church that Jesus is building draws its life from engaging and defeating the powers of darkness.

The church man builds refuses to offend.  The Church that Christ is building refuses to be ashamed.

It totally breaks my heart to say this, but, California is littered with Christian projects that were built by man, and for man.  This explains how immorality has spread like a cancer, even as churches got bigger. It explains why the government in California is working so hard to ban Christianity.

It makes me weep to have to say this, but I must. Paul leveled a stern warning to all who build “for God,” but do so by their own design.  1 Corinthians 3:10 “According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder, I have laid the foundation and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. 11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

Beloved, there is a terrifying outcome for those who have built mega-churches that God had no part in establishing.  They will all stand before God and be judged for their works.  1 Corinthians 3:12 “Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. 14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.”

Beloved, the autopsy on California leaves no room for another verdict!

Let everyone who reads this heed the warning!  There are disastrous things about building Christian projects by human power that aren’t readily apparent.

For starters, these man-made churches persecute the true Church in a way that is worse than the world does.  How? By you as the pastor of a church built on a foundation of wood, hay, and straw making Bible preaching offensive. By you who have given believers an appetite for fast food. By discouraging true pastors who feel foolish for holding fast to their convictions. You have left them feeling betrayed when you steal their people, and herd them into a faceless mega-crowd, where they no longer have any accountability.

I am praying right now that my cry will be understood by leaders. I am travailing for leaders to wake up while there is still time.

But, there is an even more hideous fact you need to face: Satan may actually be helping you build your artificial church!  He may even supply the money to build it.  A hundred million dollars is chump change to the enemy of God, if it gets him the prize he seeks: building a powerless center, where thousands can be disarmed and neutralized.

My precious brothers and sisters let me ask you: What could be a better trophy for hell than producing an artificial church?  It has all the right features, but no power.  It is the perfect distraction.  The devil can freely defile a culture in plain view of the church and she will be too powerless, self-satisfied, and oblivious to stop it.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ: If this describes your church, get out!  If you are the pastor of such a church, get back to preaching the pure word of God and making true disciples, before it is too late. Get right with God, and begin to turn California back from the abyss!
