SALVATION AND MIRACLES OVERFLOW BAKERSFIELD

Tonight, God took His revenge on Satan in Bakersfield, California. This city is now the place where lies go to die.

Lies! Would the crowd show up? Every evil spirit said, “No!” More lies. Would the lost respond to the direct preaching of the Word of God? The devil said, “Of course not.”

The evil one rehearsed the catalog of events he had fomented all across America. The list of profound disappointments that characterized 2020. My, how the cackling voice of Satan was celebrating the spread of evil and despair!

Bakersfield was hit even harder than most places in our nation. It was here that the people found out that the lockdowns are worse than the virus. It is here where violence takes the youngest. It is here where multitudes of children appear so downhearted and afraid. It is here that, over the last twelve months, a friend of mine officiated at 52 funerals from drive-by shootings. Crime is soaring in every category. Despair blankets Bakersfield.

There are parts of this city where you feel an ominous heaviness that seems to tell everyone to keep their distance. The sign over them might as well be the same as that over the entrance to Dante’s Inferno, “Abandon hope, all you who enter here.”

Then the heroes began to appear. Wendell Vinson of Canyon Hills AOG invited us and lent his significant influence, as well as the property in downtown Bakersfield, to this vision of reaching the lost.

Manuel Carrizales who leads Stay Focused Ministry gave us a powerful beachhead at this facility. Because he helped, we could do multiple outreaches in the neighborhoods.

Then Frank Saldana, his team from Inner City Action, and 100 volunteers flooded the city with soul winning prayer, tons of food and vast supplies of clothing and other necessities.

But Satan sneered at it all. He reminded me of the hurricane of hatred and confusion he was pouring out on the nation. He threatened that Bakersfield would be no different and that nothing good would come out of all our efforts. “It is futile,” the devil growled.

Then God.

It came like a sudden pouring rain on parched ground. It came like a rushing mighty wind! The early warning was the intense presence of God in the tent. Then an hour before we were to begin, the tent was half full. We thought “this is a great breakthrough, but we can manage it.”

Then we turned around and it became a torrent of humanity pressing to get to the tent. The line of cars was backed up on the Boulevard as far as you could see. We are forced to add every chair and still they came. Scores could not get into the tent.

Nothing could keep them from pressing into the meeting. They sat out in the cold for hours. They yearned to receive all that God had for them.

I preached a direct Gospel message. I solemnly warned them that serving Christ meant giving up all to be His disciple. This did not dissuade them. On the contrary, it ignited an even greater hunger to for them to be saved. The line of those wanting to be saved stretched all the way outside the tent.

They came as a river to confess the Lordship of Jesus over their souls. They were transformed to the uttermost. How many were saved? Only God knows the real number.

Once the amazing harvest was safely in the care of our workers, we then began the miracle ministry. Just like everything else about this night, it was overflow. Signs and Wonders seem to dart from one place to another, until there was rejoicing. The joy of sickness being healed was felt all over the tent.

How can you end a night like this? It was dramatic, historic, and emphatic. The Lord God Almighty came down and took vengeance on evil—the very evil that is grinding our nation down.

We ended with the sense that it will only get stronger—if you can imagine that—and our profound hope is that the fire of God will spread to the rest of California, and then to every State in America! Hallelujah!

THE BEST NEWS EVER FROM CALIFORNIA

The magnitude of this miracle in California boggles the mind. 50,000 toys were handed out to thousands of families today in Bakersfield. Every year, Stay Focused Ministries, led by my friends Manual and Liz Carrizales, stages what must be the largest toy giveaway in America. What an honor to work with Stay Focused Ministries.

Frank Saldana and the team from Inner City Action Stockton, and Mario Murillo Ministries combined efforts as we are building up to the Living Proof Tent Crusade which will take place January 11-13th. 50,000 Crusade card invitations went with every toy and in every box of groceries.

Frank Saldana praying for someone that Jesus died to save.

It took several hours to give away the toys. The look of gratitude on the faces of these families would melt the coldest heart. Yet, at the same time, you could see the evil of the lockdown. You saw the gaping wound that Gavin Newsom has inflicted on everyone in California.

A heavy blanket of despair, loneliness and sadness hangs over Bakersfield. Violence, and suicide is spiking in this community. We are bringing our tent into the fray in order to bolster the efforts of many heroes in Bakersfield.

We must especially honor and commend Pastor Wendell Vinson who leads Canyon Hills Church and the amazing efforts of City Share. He invited us to bring our army and our tent and to place the tent right in the heart of the city.

Our army is already invading Bakersfield, and they are fearless! And that is an essential trait, given the neighborhoods they are invading. The pictures you see only tell a fraction of the real story.

Unless you are physically present to see how the warriors from Inner City Action reach people in these neighborhoods, you cannot possibly appreciate the work they do.  They do not just hand out food and clothing, they minister in power. They take the time to listen and feel the pain of men, women and children, as they go door to door. They lay hands on the sick and they are healed. The miracles of hope, and healing begin even before the tent goes up.

Special thanks must also go to Pastor Julio Alas of Victory Outreach East. He has opened his building to us and it has become a clearing house of mighty prayer and worship for our army and our volunteers.

Soon, the radio ads will begin along with a mass-mailing to every home—to the thousands of homes within a large radius of the tent.

Monday begins another round of outreaches in Bakersfield, and they will continue right through the Crusade. We will not stop until we have reached every lost soul in the city.

Further good news: everyday another ministry joins us. More and more volunteers are making their way to Bakersfield to join in the harvest.

Here is our conviction: The churches in California should not be closed. We are not super-spreaders of the Covid 19 virus, because of the precautions that we take. Our crusade in Fresno was attended by thousands and there was not a single case of Covid reported.

The best way I can describe to you what is taking place in Bakersfield, is this: The presence of God is expanding over the city—particularly in the poor neighborhoods. That presence is creating an openness to Jesus which is stunning.

What excites me the most, in these weeks leading up to our tent crusade, is the expectancy. Everyone feels that something awe-inspiring is going to happen in the tent. There is something in the air that foretells miracles! There is something in the hearts of people that expects a revival!

I CAN FINALLY TELL YOU THE ASTOUNDING TRUTH.

What on earth kept me waiting weeks to give you this epic account of Fresno? Read on and you will see.

It was the crusade that had everything going against it. It was the crusade that answered the burning question: “If God be for us, who can be against us?” The emphatic answer is, absolutely no one.

What mountains lay before us? What obstacles did we have to overcome? I am torn. I have so much to say and so little space to say it. To do justice to the glorious story of Fresno, I could easily write a book.

Let’s start with the utter impossibility. We endured countless hours of uncertainty. Think of it! We had no permit for this event until 36 hours before opening night. Months of prayer, sweat and perseverance unlike any we had ever known went into this historic miracle. 

Yet, without that permit we forged ahead with the most comprehensive ground game. Frank Saldana, A. J. Nunes and myself formed the core that executed a complete outreach that had zero promise of being allowed. We poured tens of thousands of dollars into something that looked impossible.

Local Pastors made all the difference. They unified. They cancelled services to make a bold statement at the tent.

Families were overcome with joy and gratitude when our team from Inner City Action Stockton fanned out and touched thousands on the streets and in devastated neighborhoods. They knocked on doors with huge boxes of food. They gave a clear and direct witness of Jesus to each one. When they prayed for the sick, they were healed! Miracles on some of the meanest streets in America. Even if the tent crusade had been banned, no one could deny the multitude of miracles on the streets. That would have been reason enough to come to Fresno.

Why couldn’t we get a permit? Because we were determined to do a regular crusade and not a skeletal meeting. We needed to touch the people. We needed to destroy the fear and the lie that churches were shut down solely because of the virus.

We could have gotten a permit, if we had agreed to keep people 6 feet apart. All we had to do was limit attendance to 250 people. All we had to do was surrender to everything God told us to stand against. But we needed every chair filled. Luke 18:23, “Then the master said to the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.”

When we saw rioters and demonstrators without masks and social distancing operating freely. When we saw big box stores wide open. When we saw planes flying with every seat filled—we knew the truth. This pandemic was an excuse for the Left to punish the church. Some Federal Judges have ruled, again and again, that these lockdowns unfairly targeted Christians.

We stood our ground and God brought the victory. The city granted a permit. The fire department granted the other permit. We opened to the public.

Fresno matters more than we know. Yesterday, during an interview with Lance Wallnau about Fresno, Lance said this: “I don’t know why, but I couldn’t get Fresno off my mind; that it is a city that could take us to national revival.”

Sunday October 11, 5:30 PM: It’s an hour before starting time and the tent is full. We open all the flaps and now chairs are all around the outside of the tent. Our team is aware of an intense presence of God. We begin the worship 30 minutes early—and that became the norm all 6 nights.

The fire of God was on my wife Mechelle as she prayed over the crowd. It was not just a prayer it was a two-edged sword that ordered Satan to pack up and get out, and asked the Holy Spirit to come in great power. That also became the norm for all 6 nights.

Mario Murillo Ministries has made an iron clad covenant with God not to have our tent filled with just Christians, but we must have the lost, addicted and demonized in the seats. That doesn’t just happen. It takes a deliberate act of war and a well-executed plan from God.

Surveying the crowd, I know it is time to preach the Gospel. It is time to declare the Cross, the Blood, Resurrection, the return of Christ, and hell. How do I tell you what happened next? They tell me 300 souls are being saved, and forsaking all to follow Christ. Only God knows the true number. What I do know is that a lie about California just bit the dust.

For the next five nights the tent is ground zero for healing miracles and public conversions. On Tuesday night, something happened that was right out of a Charles Finney meeting. I preached about Jacob wrestling with God. I used it to describe the desperation for hope and meaning during the pandemic. Suddenly, a young man in the crowd is screaming about his despair. His voice is loud and agonizing. Our workers descend on him and bring him to the front, where Christ meets him in power.

It is never easy to tell you about the miracles. I fear God. These manifestations are too sacred for anyone to take credit. Yes, people who could not walk, take off, and some almost run around the tent. Yes, many admit their cancer, diabetes, bone diseases, as well as many other illnesses, are healed.

After all of these years, I am still startled by words of knowledge that ignite faith for healing. How can I ever forget the pastor’s wife who came all the way from Los Angeles with multiple sclerosis? They told me her hands were gnarled. They told me she suffered greatly. As I point to her section and say M.S. is being healed, she screams! The next day several people tell me about seeing her jubilant in her miracle, and her hands were clearly transformed. All glory must go to Jesus Christ!

So why did I wait to tell you this? I waited nearly two weeks to write this, so I could tell you the most astonishing part. The greatest fear that people had about this crusade was that it would be a “super spreader event.” Meaning that many would be infected. Not one person was infected with the coronavirus in our tent crusade. Not one! The only thing we spread was the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I am staring at over 800 decisions cards. That doesn’t count the many who were saved, but we didn’t get cards. They say over a thousand souls came forward. Again, only God knows the real number. It is a massive harvest. Only Christ gets the glory! All the glory.

But it is only the beginning. Are we relaxing? No! We are reloading.  Armed with the breakthrough in Fresno we are laying the foundation for the greatest invasion along Highway 99 in California history.

To all of you who prayed fervently. To all of you who gave sacrificially. To all of you who volunteered greatly. I say thank you with all my heart. You share in every soul saved and Fresno.

This is a message to those who support Mario Murillo’s message to America.

SATAN HAS NAILED A DOOR SHUT BUT GOD HAS BLASTED A BETTER ONE OPEN

The virus and the mass protests have shutdown American culture. The drastic changes have shocked many into stunned disbelief. This was not supposed to happen. We are being told that the America we once knew is gone forever.

For a moment there, we were teased into thinking things would return back to normal. Then riots, looting, and anarchy took over our streets. And the spike in the virus gave Democrat Governors the excuse they yearned for, so that they might abuse power. This made the changes even more cruel.

Millions of Christians in all walks of life are trying to cope with changes they never even imagined. They, too, feel that something wonderful is gone for good. Satan wants us to give way to despair—he wants us to believe he has nailed shut the door to our dreams, visions and plans.

Do you know who understood that feeling perfectly? Paul the Apostle. When he heard the jail cell door slam behind him, the devil told Paul all the same things he is trying to tell American Christians now. The enemy told him his ministry was over. Paul was seeing epic miracles. Vibrant churches were being established, and then the door slammed in his face. This was beyond a shock, and made zero sense to the man who had seen the heavenly vision. That very same feeling of shock is eating away at many believers right now.

 

Now comes my first major lesson for you in this letter: Quit wasting time staring at the door that has closed. God is opening a better one. God is not done with you—or with America.

Paul got over the shock. He stopped staring at the closed door. Rather, he looked for the open door, and he found it. I thank God every day that Paul began to write letters. Letters that have blessed and encouraged you and me countless times. Letters that would touch billions of people for thousands of years. How could he have ever imagined the secret advantage of being imprisoned?

And you and I can’t imagine the door God is opening to us right now. Here is how Paul described the miracle of his new open door: “I want to report to you, friends, that my imprisonment here has had the opposite of its intended effect. Instead of being squelched, the Message has actually prospered. All the soldiers here, and everyone else, too, found out that I’m in jail because of this Messiah. That piqued their curiosity, and now they’ve learned all about Him. Not only that, but most of the followers of Jesus here have become far more sure of themselves in the faith than ever, speaking out fearlessly about God, and about the Messiah” (Philippians 1:14-15).

Look at that phrase: “the opposite of its intended effect.” God is forever taking Satan’s tactics and throwing them back in his face. Call it a backfire or a boomerang, no matter what you call it, the impact is a glorious breakthrough in impossible situations.

You need to be seeking and preparing for that new door. It will come out of nowhere. It will irradiate you with hope and creativity.

Let me tell you my story in this pandemic and chaos. Like you, I had to deal with the sudden and shocking change brought about by the coronavirus quarantine and the ensuing anarchy. There are many who are going through things far worse than I am. But what I went through was still pretty bad.

I felt as if I had lost everything. The coronavirus scare closed down our tent crusades. For me and for our team it was a devastating loss. I am not exaggerating: I truly collapsed before God from sheer sorrow.

Then I slowly began to feel the Lord stirring something new in me—the very thing I want this letter to do for you.  Many of you who are reading this are faithful partners of our ministry, and have been for years. I was bewildered and almost embarrassed to write you about what Mario Murillo Ministries was doing during this down time.

What makes my next statement so amazing, is the fact that what I was told to do next is the very same thing that many others were told to do. The Holy Spirit said, “Write what I tell you to write and record only the videos I tell you to record.”

Next, we took the energy and resources reserved for the tent and applied it to God-given tactics on the internet. Anyone can make a video and anyone can write a blog. That is not what happened. What happened was a divine revelation of what to say, how to say it, when to say it, and whom to say it to.

For me it was a crash course in social media and internet technology. So, we dismantled much of our structure and walked through the new open door. Then, slowly at first, something began to unfold. A new audience and a new impact arrived for Mario Murillo Ministries.

Listen carefully, going on the internet does not explain what we did. Making videos does not explain what is happening here among us. What does explain it is this: in the last 30 days one million people have responded online to the things God told us to do. That is far more than we could have ever reached in our tent crusades.

Take our transformed blog for example. By recalibrating it according the changes the Holy Spirit ordered, something astounding happened. We know that at least 2,000 Christian leaders a day read the blog. But the real story is not that they read the blog, but that they download it, study it and then use the ammunition in their preaching.  We had nowhere near that impact before the pandemic.

Then the Lord gave me video messages in a distinct format. Just 2 of them have over 150,000 views each.

Every Sunday night on Facebook live, tens of thousands join Robbie Dawkins and me for the strangest mega church in America. It’s simply called Sunday Night Church. We have a conversation that the church desperately needs. We have an outpouring of the Holy Spirit that is releasing divine healing in all directions. Each Sunday Night we touch more people with the power of Jesus than we could in a year of tent crusades. Think of that.

Oh, and yes, our tent crusades are coming back. Only this time they will be broadcast from the tent in such a way that millions will not only see undeniable miracles—they will be healed right in their homes. Hallelujah!

That is how the devil’s attacks on Mario Murillo Ministries has backfired. Now it is your turn to see a door blast open. Now is not the time to fear, regret or mourn the loss of the old days. It is time for you to stop staring at the door that has closed and instead find the door that God has blasted open.

 

 

 

 

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

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

Victory Report from California

We knew God had chosen Chico for our first tent crusade in 2020. The enemy remembers Chico. It was once the site of a great youth awakening. I know because I was in it! It was an outpouring that produced powerful leaders.

Robert Maddux was born again at that time in a remarkable manner.  Yanked out of darkness, he became a true man of God—a pastor and a powerful influence upon the lives of many leaders.  Gaylord Enns is still leading leaders here in Chico, but carries a message to the nations about the Love of God. He was swept up in the fire of revival in that same visitation. Roger Houtsma met Jesus in an epic way and became a miracle- missionary evangelist who conducted many towering crusades in India. And, it was also in Chico that I was called to preach.

Lonnie Decker is also another hero, a mighty woman of God. After her husband went to be with the Lord, she became the pastor of his little country church. I remember the night that she said she would open her heart, home, and church to the hippies God was saving. And God began saving them in an amazing way. Soon we saw rallies with thousands in attendance.

Another wonderful part of the history of the Lord’s work in Chico happened in the City of Pacifica, just south of San Francisco. I happened to be at the home of Cecil and Lillian Cooper. Cecil was a vice president at Bank of America. During dinner he slid a brochure in front of me. The brochure was for a resort named Richardson Springs.  He said, “I’m buying that resort and I am going to open a Christian conference center. I am calling it Springs of Living Water.”

“The Springs,” as we affectionately called it, became a hub for revival—a home for converted hippies and so many who were converted out of the drug culture.  Many mighty voices ministered there. Dick Mills, a man with a true prophetic gift that many of you may remember, was a powerful force at The Springs at that time.

Soon, the Springs became the home of Donnie Moore’s amazing youth camps, where thousands of young people continue to be revolutionized every summer.  Then The Springs became a Youth With a Mission base, and remains one to this day.

The first tent crusade of 2020 carries the greatest challenge. The reason is simple: it is the most rushed.  There is little you can do during the holiday season. So, when the New Year arrived, we hit the ground running. The training we received last year proved to be of invaluable help for the coming meetings! We learned to ignore what we saw with our natural eyes, and to only go by the Word of God.

All of the permits we required came in on time. The literature came together beautifully. Workers reported for duty, even when given minimal notice. All the while, we felt the presence of the devil nipping at our heels, trying to get us to stop. But, this year, we have never slowed down. This year, we have ignored even the most daunting threats and have just kept charging forward.

The enemy wanted to bury, and bury deeply, those vast wells of revival that still exist in Chico. The success of this tent crusade has hinged on successfully implementing a new weapon God had given us: it is called the Night of Miracles.

In Fresno, Dinuba, and Hanford, it was the Nights of Miracles that set the stage for the breakthrough. These Nights are a kind of D-Day for usbecause they are the initial beach landing.

But in Chico, we found ourselves at a loss to know where to hold our Night of Miracles. Suddenly, the phone rang and we received a call from Josh Jameson who assists Steve Grandy at Jubilee Church in Chico. They wanted to do what they called a Word Explosion in January. We immediately realized that we were to team up to do an event that would bless Jubilee and at the same time give us the breakthrough we needed in Chico.

Of course, the devil came with all his usual lies. He said no one would show up. He said the religious spirit over the city would smother any fire that might come. I got so excited by every lie he told. Because I knew the opposite must be true. And was it ever!

That Sunday night, the church was full early, and the faith level was sky high. The same thing happened on Monday night.  There were clear miracles of healing, yet something even more important happened. It is so important because it exposed a fallacy about Chico, and for all of California, for that matter.

SOULS WERE SAVED AND SOULS WANTED TO BE SAVED.  Those of us in the church always wish that the unsaved would want Christ, but we have been conditioned to believe they are closed to the Gospel. The Devil dreads the idea of souls being saved, and the secular-progressives laugh at the idea of youth turning to Jesus. All of that went up in smoke at Jubilee in Chico!

Now, I want to bring the most exciting news of all…and I need your help. On Tuesday, February 11th at noon, I am going bring a special message to pastors and leaders, and you will never guess where. Talk about full circle…the free luncheon is at the Springs! The Youth with a Mission base at Springs of Living Water will be the location for this historic lunch.

You already know the Tent goes up in Chico at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds March 15th through the 18th, but first, we will gather the leaders for a special time in the Word and Power of God. This luncheon is free, but you must register. Call us at (775)-238-3473.

Please remember to hold us up in prayer. I look forward to seeing you there!

 

 

CALIFORNIA: WE DID NOT DISOBEY THE HEAVENLY VISION

I spoke one Sunday morning in Stockton, and that afternoon I took a nap before the evening rally. God gave me a dream. He told me that California Highway 99, from Red Bluff to Arvin, would be a raging river of healing and salvation. When I woke up I had no idea I was to have any involvement in fulfilling this prophetic dream. I assumed it was for the audience in Stockton, where I was going to preach that night.

Five years later, Rick Wiles gave us a beautiful new 8,000 square foot tent and 1,000 chairs. We suddenly knew that the dream I had in Stockton was a mandate for us. God had called us to take His miracle power down the full length of Highway 99.

At the same time we were given that tent, without our knowing about it, Frank Saldana and Inner City Action felt led to study how tents are erected, and were learning how to use them in ministry.  God was putting a team together.

At the same time, God was forming a close friendship between our ministry and that of Jim and Kristine Carpenter from The Bridge in Marysville. We knew Marysville would be our first stop on the Highway 99 corridor of Glory.

God made it very clear: no matter how little support you have—no matter how much resistance you face—no matter how impossible it looks, keep moving forward to set up the tent where the Spirit directs you, and don’t stop.

There was a reason God exhorted us in this way. Our journey always looked impossible. There was an amazing amount of resistance. We had to rely on support that came from shockingly unexpected sources. We had to repeatedly pick ourselves up, after many setbacks.

We learned the hard way that a great portion of the Body of Christ is not interested in winning souls—especially not in dangerous locations.

Marysville proved that our calling was truly supernatural. We had to fit our tent onto a parking lot that barely fit our tent. The weather turned cold and wet, and still, crowds came from everywhere. We saw the dream become reality when the river of healing and salvation broke out in Marysville. Thank God we were able to move the tent to a professional baseball stadium.  We closed out that first crusade in constant rain, and then the temperature dropped down to 40 degrees. But, in spite of this, it was packed!

We had no idea where the tent was supposed to go next. All of this was so sudden that we never had the luxury of advanced planning.

Then the Lord told us our next stop was to be Paradise, California. I protested, ‘Paradise is burned to the ground. There is no electricity or water there. Most of all, there are no people there.’  So I placed it back in God’s hands and said that, if we get a call to come to Paradise in the next week, we will go.

Seven days later we received that phone call, and during our time in Paradise we witnessed the power of God to save, to heal, and to bind up the many broken-hearted who had lost loved ones in the fire.

Our next tent crusade was in Stockton and was our most dangerous yet. We were shouted down. The fire department would not let us put on the sides to our tent, leaving us wide open to a park filled with addicts, the homeless, and gangsters. We were literally sitting ducks.  Yet again, we saw God overrule the powers of darkness as the openness worked to our advantage, and He gave us souls and miracles.

When we arrived in Dinuba, we proved the power of God in a way we had not seen in any other crusade. The entire town was aware of the tent sitting on the bare ground where the new Dinuba High School would soon be built. And, it was in Dinuba that we first encountered crowds that overflowed the tent.

The report of healing miracles spread across town, and the stories about how wounded souls were being transformed got out into the community, and it soon became clear that the entire city knew God was at work.

And finally, toward the end of November, the last tent crusade of 2019 took place in Hanford. It was the most powerful on every level. The unity among the pastors there was the best we had seen. The excitement level was greater than anywhere else. The altars were crowded every night with souls seeking Jesus. God did wonderful and undeniable healing miracles.

Thousands upon thousands were reached by Christ in this tour on Highway 99. Local churches have been fired up and equipped to expand and continue the revival.

Paul wrote in Acts 26:19 that he “was not disobedient to the heavenly vision.” And:

WE WERE NOT DISOBEDIENT TO AN IMPOSSIBLE CALLING!

To all who gave so sacrificially to make this tour possible—to all who prayed, worked and battled alongside us—to all who stood with us in the face of unimaginable resistance, both from inside and outside the church—to all of you I give my deepest thanks, and I am praying that God will richly bless all of you!

Now we come to the most astonishing news. Our momentum is carrying us forward into 2020. We are able to announce that we are going to continue down Highway 99 once again in the coming New Year. The Lord has directed us to reach 5 cities in 2020, and these dates are locked in:

Everything in me is telling me these meetings will be bigger, more powerful and more effective than any tent crusades we have held so far. God is taking us from reaching thousands to reaching tens of thousands. We very strongly desire your prayers. We need your church to back these outreaches. We are praying the Lord of the Harvest to send the needed workers.

And so, dear friends, by the grace and power of the Holy Spirit, and with your continued support, the river rages on!  Join us for our first event in Chico.

Special nights of miracles in Chico to kick off the California tent tour!

 

Thank you for making this blog a force in America. Now on to California

Thank you for making this blog a major force in America! Only God knows the true number of people we have reached through this effort.

Now let me turn your attention–on this last day of 2019–to our God-given plan for California in 2020. An astounding door for moral awakening has blown open in California, but I need your help. Did you know that over a million people now know what God is doing under the roof of our tent?

Thousands are asking what we are going to do next. The answer is, we are coming back. Only this time, we are returning with a vengeance! Here is how we got to this point:

In 2019, we began in raw obedience. When Frank Saldana, Jim Carpenter, and I began this mission we had to trust God for everything. Satan opposed us in ways I have never seen before. We were in direct contact with hell.  Again and again our tent tour seemed doomed. And, again and again, God came through!  And, in such a manner that no one but God received the glory.

We went to Paradise, California when there was virtually nothing left there after the fire. We set up our tent in a city where everyone had fled for their lives. No one can explain, even to this day, how God filled the tent with so many people and how so many were miraculously transformed. Marysville was total warfare.  But it not only turned around, it was so fruitful we had to add extra nights at a baseball stadium. In Stockton, the opposition was even more intense. Yet again, the power of God prevailed.

However, it was not until we got to Dinuba that we saw the true potential for the tent. Then our final crusade in Hanford brought record-breaking crowds, miracles, and salvations.

Do you want to know why Satan fought us so hard?  It is because we discovered there is a vast harvest in California. That is something the enemy, the leftist media, and the God-haters never wanted us to know. Satan overplayed his hand. The people are sick to death of the agenda of the Left that is destroying the economy, brainwashing their children, unleashing crime and addiction, and persecuting Christians.

Every night, we suffered a critical shortage of counselors to pray with young and old who wanted Jesus. The number of healings also overwhelmed us.  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.”

Along with the vast harvest, we saw another result: churches came alive to win souls!

Yes, it’s true, in 2019 we powered through incredible obstacles. We reached thousands. Now we are in a position to reach tens of thousands. And get this: we have already locked-in 5 California cities for mass healing crusades.  They are: Chico, Roseville, Modesto, Fresno, and Bakersfield.

Having sites locked-in this early, gives us a much greater edge than we had last year.  Much of 2019 was consumed battling for permits and last minute expenses.

Only this time, we are coming with a much bigger army.  This time, a battle-tested core will return to lead new recruits. This wonderful battalion of Spirit-filled warriors is waiting for us to replenish them for invasion.

On top of that, we will multiply our outreach to the poor and homeless by holding special daytime rallies in the tent. The homeless won’t come at night, for fear of losing their place and their belongings. We will bring them to the tent for morning outreaches, where they will experience the power and love of God, as well as receiving resources.

And that’s not all. We are purchasing a second tent, just for children. While their parents are getting saved in the main tent, the children will receive special ministry in their own tent.

Below is our confirmed dates for 2020.

We missed having many people come to the tent in 2019, because they don’t go to church or watch Christian media.  But this time, we will invest in new social media weapons designed to get their attention. This includes redesigning our website to better serve visitors. We are investing in new equipment that will let us instantly show short live-streams from the tent, plus interviews with those who have been saved and healed.

I am convinced that a harvest, beyond anything we have seen, is waiting. This open door demands a massive investment. We simply don’t know how long this door will stay open—but there is one thing we do know for sure:

Unless a powerful miracle occurs, within one short year the America you have always known and loved will be gone forever. Who is leading the charge on impeachment and every other destructive movement in America?  California.  California’s God-hating elites have the power and the money to wipe out all of our freedoms.

Here are some final facts about California:

  • Right now, those who are the best equipped to win the hearts of young Californians are wealthy leftist politicians, atheists, media moguls, singers, and actors.  They have the biggest stage, the loudest microphones, and the largest bankroll.
  • They all have this in common: They despise Jesus Christ, the Bible, America, Donald Trump, Israel, and you.
  • Those on the Left are pawns of Satan. They want a world without the traditional family or any restraints on abortion, drugs, pornography, or pedophiles. Here’s the unvarnished truth: the current leftist regime now in power in California sees no future for Christianity in that state. They have made it their mission to drive true believers out of what they consider to be “their” state.
  • Their ideology thrives on policies that divide and destroy.  They see chaos as a good thing, because it destroys the old order to make way for the new order.  Prolonged economic depression, brainwashing, riots, and even cop killings are permissible for the “greater good.” That explains the deliberate destruction of California’s prosperity and civil order.

No one needs to remind you how angry, perverted and chaotic our nation has become. Whatever we are going to do, we must do it now.We saw many miracles in 2019, but the dire facts about California and America’s future demand a bold and drastic outreach. Thanks for your prayers.

This section directed to our ministry partners.

This is the last day of 2019. Some wanted to help us in 2019 and didn’t get around to it, by using our donation page today you can still get credit on your I am directing the final part of this blog to those who want to help us win souls. I want to make sure you feel absolutely no pressure to give.

No one needs to remind you how angry, perverted and chaotic our nation has become. Whatever we are going to do, we must do it now.

We have the tent, the chairs, the army, and the permits.  Your gift will mean more now than ever: because it will have an immediate impact and will multiply the size of the harvest.  Your love gift will go directly to soul winning.

I have asked you for help before, only this time, I am even more certain that our nation’s future is at stake. Perhaps you meant to give more this year but were not able to. The government allows us to credit any gift you give toward your 2019 taxes, so long as it is postmarked on or before December 31st.

I know you love souls. I know you see what it means to reach California. I also know you have been generous before. However, times have changed and we are facing a threat we never thought we would face. You are the best partners a ministry ever had, and you have always come through.  But it is because we must treat this open door as our last chance, I need you to dig a little deeper.

2020

We kept our promise. We were obedient to the Godly Dream

I spoke one Sunday morning in Stockton, and that afternoon I took a nap before the evening rally. God gave me a dream. He told me that California Highway 99, from Red Bluff to Arvin, would be a raging river of healing and salvation. When I woke up I had no idea I was to have any involvement in fulfilling this prophetic dream. I assumed it was for the audience in Stockton, where I was going to preach that night.

Five years later, Rick Wiles gave us a beautiful new 8,000 square foot tent and 1,000 chairs. We suddenly knew that the dream I had in Stockton was a mandate for us. God had called us to take His miracle power down the full length of Highway 99.

At the same time we were given that tent, without our knowing about it, Frank Saldana and Inner City Action felt led to study how tents are erected, and were learning how to use them in ministry.  God was putting a team together.

At the same time, God was forming a close friendship between our ministry and that of Jim and Kristine Carpenter from The Bridge in Marysville. We knew Marysville would be our first stop on the Highway 99 corridor of Glory.

God made it very clear: no matter how little support you have—no matter how much resistance you face—no matter how impossible it looks, keep moving forward to set up the tent where the Spirit directs you, and don’t stop.

There was a reason God exhorted us in this way. Our journey always looked impossible. There was an amazing amount of resistance. We had to rely on support that came from shockingly unexpected sources. We had to repeatedly pick ourselves up, after many setbacks.

We learned the hard way that a great portion of the Body of Christ is not interested in winning souls—especially not in dangerous locations.

Marysville proved that our calling was truly supernatural. We had to fit our tent onto a parking lot that barely fit our tent. The weather turned cold and wet, and still, crowds came from everywhere. We saw the dream become reality when the river of healing and salvation broke out in Marysville. Thank God we were able to move the tent to a professional baseball stadium.  We closed out that first crusade in constant rain, and then the temperature dropped down to 40 degrees. But, in spite of this, it was packed!

We had no idea where the tent was supposed to go next. All of this was so sudden that we never had the luxury of advanced planning.

Then the Lord told us our next stop was to be Paradise, California. I protested, ‘Paradise is burned to the ground. There is no electricity or water there. Most of all, there are no people there.’  So I placed it back in God’s hands and said that, if we get a call to come to Paradise in the next week, we will go.

Seven days later we received that phone call, and during our time in Paradise we witnessed the power of God to save, to heal, and to bind up the many broken-hearted who had lost loved ones in the fire.

Our next tent crusade was in Stockton and was our most dangerous yet. We were shouted down. The fire department would not let us put on the sides to our tent, leaving us wide open to a park filled with addicts, the homeless, and gangsters. We were literally sitting ducks.  Yet again, we saw God overrule the powers of darkness as the openness worked to our advantage, and He gave us souls and miracles.

When we arrived in Dinuba, we proved the power of God in a way we had not seen in any other crusade. The entire town was aware of the tent sitting on the bare ground where the new Dinuba High School would soon be built. And, it was in Dinuba that we first encountered crowds that overflowed the tent.

The report of healing miracles spread across town, and the stories about how wounded souls were being transformed got out into the community, and it soon became clear that the entire city knew God was at work.

And finally, toward the end of November, the last tent crusade of 2019 took place in Hanford. It was the most powerful on every level. The unity among the pastors there was the best we had seen. The excitement level was greater than anywhere else. The altars were crowded every night with souls seeking Jesus. God did wonderful and undeniable healing miracles.

Thousands upon thousands were reached by Christ in this tour on Highway 99. Local churches have been fired up and equipped to expand and continue the revival.

Paul wrote in Acts 26:19 that he “was not disobedient to the heavenly vision.” And:

WE WERE NOT DISOBEDIENT TO AN IMPOSSIBLE CALLING!

To all who gave so sacrificially to make this tour possible—to all who prayed, worked and battled alongside us—to all who stood with us in the face of unimaginable resistance, both from inside and outside the church—to all of you I give my deepest thanks, and I am praying that God will richly bless all of you!

Now we come to the most astonishing news. Our momentum is carrying us forward into 2020. We are able to announce that we are going to continue down Highway 99 once again in the coming New Year. The Lord has directed us to reach 5 cities in 2020, and these dates are locked in:

March 15th-18th  ̶  The Silver Dollar Fairgrounds, Chico, CA

April 19th-22nd  ̶  Placer County Fairgrounds, Roseville, CA

May 17th-20th  ̶  Modesto, CA (the site is in negotiations and will be confirmed soon).

June 21st-24th  ̶  Fresno Fairgrounds, in Fresno, CA

September 13th-16th  ̶  Bakersfield, CA (the site is in negotiations and will be confirmed soon).

Everything in me is telling me these meetings will be bigger, more powerful and more effective than any tent crusades we have held so far. God is taking us from reaching thousands to reaching tens of thousands. We very strongly desire your prayers. We need your church to back these outreaches. We are praying the Lord of the Harvest to send the needed workers.

And so, dear friends, by the grace and power of the Holy Spirit, and with your continued support, the river rages on!

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

Someone caught on video the moment that Jesus healed a man’s legs, and not only could he walk, he ran!  Others witnessed sickness leaving bodies all over the tent. Indeed, in some cases God revealed the name of the illnesses and even how long people had suffered with them.

This abundance of healings is the kind of thing that Spirit-filled believers love to hear about. Many would love to hear about the prophetic words that zeroed in on people with laser accuracy, leaving them stunned and rejoicing.

These are the kinds of things we should want to know about.  Signs and wonders are a vital tool in winning souls and igniting the church to revival. Not only that, but Jesus was wounded and bore the stripes of scourging so these dear people could be healed and set free.

But, have we as a church become so dazzled by signs and wonders that we have forgotten that our priority should be saving souls?  Has our fascination with signs and wonders become a distraction from the Great Commission?  God forbid!

The bottom line is that the Holy Spirit wants soul-winning and miracles to work together, following the pattern set by the ministry of Jesus and by those in the early church.  That is the story of the tent—and that is all you need to know.

Nevertheless, such reports do not do justice to what is happening in these meetings. Nor does it reveal the important implication of this harvest.

People are turning to Jesus in large numbers with a deep conviction.  They are not merely turning over a new leaf—they are being converted. Conversion is a word that has almost dropped out of church language. That souls are being converted is all you need to know about these tent meetings.  Winning lost souls is what it is all about. This is why Jesus went to the Cross.

However, this surge of souls in our tent in Hanford speaks to a much larger phenomenon, and that is that Satan has overplayed his hand in California.  Not being content with just introducing pornography, filth, and evil, he must also pour forth a flood of sexual perversion on the school children of this state. He is saturating classrooms with gender-bending propaganda. Why does the frenzied Left feel they must rush children into sexual identities? Why is Planned Parenthood grooming children to become sexually active? Why this war on innocent childhood?

The devil is attempting to submerge all of America in a spirit of hatred, division and violence.  He is pouring out a spirit of despair and is subsuming America in a cold-blooded atmosphere that is creating so much misery. Why is the enemy doing these things, since he knows that every single time he has done it in the past, people have been driven to Jesus? The answer is he can’t help himself. He is blinded by his unbridled hatred of God.  Satan wants to strike back at God by humiliating all of mankind, and putting men, women and children in bondages of perversion.

During the past two nights of ministry, we have seen young and old alike responding to an unapologetic call to commit their lives to Christ.

Last night a nine-year-old boy named Jozion Nunez was truly born again. He joined hundreds of others who have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb! They represent the miracle that is still to come in the Highway 99 Corridor of Glory.  Watch for it, beloved! The harvest is here!

Special note: Tonight, November 19th and tomorrow night November 20th at 7 p.m. will be the last two Living Proof Crusade meetings of 2019.  Please be in intercessory prayer and, if at all possible, come and join us!
