REVIVAL STARTER

Revival Starter

By Mario Murillo

Two thousand years later Christian theologians still don’t know what starts a revival.   Authors release books to tell us the “recipe for revival.”  No sooner are they out than the Spirit falls in a way that totally contradicts the book.   As soon as we add a “step” to revival, God steps over our step.

Even those that were in past revivals are no help because history shows that the old revival usually opposes the new revival.  It seems dangerous to be tagged an expert on revival.  As the rock song says, “If I claim to be a wise man then it surely means that I don’t know.”

Revivals have started in more ways than you or I can imagine.  Some began among children.  Some started in prisons. Some were touched off by the very people the church despised the most.    Has God kept us clueless about revival because He knows that anything that we can analyze, we will try to control? That is in us and there is no getting around it.

So why isn’t the devil happy?  We are divided, disorganized and ignorant of his devices.  There is no major threat of revival in America-right?  But he does not relax.  Does he know something we don’t know?   Like maybe revival has never been actually caused by the church?  Does he remember how many times revivals have hit him by surprise?  Does Satan respect one aspect of revival more than we do- that revival can strike at any moment in any place through any believer?

Okay, we can’t truly know how to start a revival and Satan doesn’t know how to stop one.  That dear pilgrim is called an impasse.  Only God can break the tie.  So what can we do?  Brace yourself…WE NEED TO LOOK AT GOD.

Satan is watching God more than he is watching us because we, my friend are not the threat.  Here is a love/hate triangle:  God is looking at us, we are looking at the devil and the devil is looking at God.

WE NEED TO LOOK AT GOD-Get this and you have taken a giant step forward.  We need to be watching God.  But that is so simple and obvious.  If it is so simple and obvious why aren’t we doing it?  Why in fact are we doing everything else but that?  Again, is it because Lucifer knows how to busy us with stuff that seems holy but is irrelevant to revival?

Even our prayers are often not directed at God.  They are the statements we have been told to make that will supposedly cause God to work.   Face it! God refuses to operate within our formulas.  He operates from a secret.  “The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant.” –Psalm 25:14

God is looking for a relationship with those who want revival.  Exodus 31:18 is strange.  It says, “And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon Mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.”  Moses and Israel have waited for centuries to gain legitimacy.  With law comes an identity and a legacy.  Instead God delays it for weeks so He can commune with Moses?

Here’s the rub: You want revival, but God wants you.   Is it possible that in all of our arduous efforts we have overlooked the most amazing simplicity of the entire universe-“If you abide in Me and My Words abide in you, you shall ask what you will and it shall be done.”-John 15:7

Standing against the storm

Revival is the natural result of getting so close to God that His secret takes hold and that ignites a chain reaction of others who suddenly cannot live without intimacy with God-and so and so on.

When can we know that revival has started?  Something I noticed in the great revivalists who led the great revivals.  They had an unshakable conviction that a revival had already started.  No matter what anyone said or did they would not back down from the confession “revival is here!”   Much of their preaching was devoted to this conviction.

“Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!-John 4:35 Revival starters kept an infectious declaration going no matter what.  Though the people around felt it was months away or years away, the revivalist says NO! IT IS ALREADY HERE!

Again I ask, when can we know that a revival has started? I got my answer one day at the beach when the tide was out.  Gentle white foam tickled my toes.  God said “no matter how small that wave is, it is an ocean wave.  It is a relative of the tsunami.”  Yes, a tidal wave can go 500 mph yet still it is a nothing but a larger ocean wave.

“A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.” –Matthew 12:20.   This verse is saturated with meaning but I will limit myself to the part about the smoking flax.  Jesus is not going to put out any fire no matter how insignificant it looks until justice is victorious.

The first time you cried out for America to be saved God took you at your word and started a revival fire in you. The first syllable said in prayer for revival at any gathering where women pray started a revival.  The first time a pastor told his people how much we need revival the spark was ignited.

The job now is to cooperate with God for bigger and bigger and bigger waves.  The tide rises as the revival core pays the price of obedience.   If they keep to the intention of the revival it will intensify.  If they refuse the hand of man and the ways of Baal the waves will come in faithful and ever increasing power.

How else can I say it?  You are a revival starter simply by wanting more of Jesus.

The Impossibility Factor

the impossibility factor copy

The Impossibility Factor: Revivals are always  impossible until they happen

Mario Murillo

Revival has never looked more impossible in America.  The thing is that really doesn’t mean anything. Revivals are always impossible until they happen.

Revival struck London through John Wesley when it was impossible.   One out every seven houses in London was a house of prostitution.  More people were attending séances than church.  Nearly 100,000 children lived like animals.  The London times had not mentioned Christmas for decades…not even once.

Revival came anyway and England became the world’s missionary leader.

Revival struck Kentucky when it was unthinkable.  This was the most lawless state in the union.  There was no police.  Every criminal on the run headed for Kentucky.  Murder, rape, and alcoholism were pandemic.  Revival flipped Kentucky so violently that it became the most zealously Christian state in America.

The early twentieth century was a far more skeptical era than today.  The blush of Darwinism and Marxism was so feverish that it was a foregone conclusion that Christianity would go away altogether. Scientists declared the age of reason and solemnly assured us that religion would be gone by the 1920s.

raw bravery

Imagine in that atmosphere, if you were to have said in 1906, “a one eyed black man is going to rent a dingy horse livery on Azusa Street in downtown Los Angeles and start a movement that will engulf nearly 600 million people worldwide.”  The men in white would have been sent for you.

As I said in a recent post: We have so many wrong ideas about millennials and we have so much ignorance about Azusa Street!

We hear preachers say “millennials” ainsert 3re too skeptical and cannot handle Bible doctrine.  That is so wrong.   Did you know that Darwin and Karl Marx were more popular at the time of the Azusa Street Revival than he is today?  In fact, fundamentalism was organized at that time to stem the tide of atheism, Marxism, and a worldwide rejection of the Bible.

God’s remedy for the dark, disbelieving early 20th Century was to pour out His Spirit.   And that is the answer for today!

The point is that revivals are impossible until they happen.   Focus on the evil and you will feel despair.  Concentrate on the inherent unstoppable nature of past revivals and you will seek revival correctly.

You should also know what the church was preaching in those darkest moments before awakenings began.  Pulpits were filled with pessimists who instead of rebuking the despair joined in the chorus.  They declared the day of revival to be over!  Even that did not stop God.

How is it that revival can strike without warning in the most unpromising times and grow in the hardest soil?  The answer is that when darkness is intense we tend look at the wrong indicators.  It’s not that there are no warnings of revival it is simply that we do not know them when we see them because fear is so loud.insert 2

Look at today.  Do you see any signs of revival?  Most would say absolutely not.  They would say all of the same things that people have said before every outpouring of God.   The times are too evil.

That is the argument today.  We legalized gay marriage, drugs and we toy with Islam.  Our leaders are loons that are finding the best ways to drive us into extinction.  Churches are closing and 1,000 ministers are leaving the ministry every month.  You know the rest because you have heard a hundred times.

Atheists are boasting that the whole world in general is becoming secular and anti-supernatural.  The facts are just the opposite.  It is a very religious world, far more religious than it was 50 years ago.

Consider these statistics from sociologist Rodney Stark:

— 81 percent claim to belong to an organized religious faith, and most of the rest report engaging in religious activities such as prayer or making offerings to the gods in various “folk religion” temples.

— 74 percent say religion is an important part of their daily lives.

— 50 percent report they have attended a place of worship or religious service in the past seven days.

-In very few nations do as many as five percent claim to be atheists, and only in China, Vietnam, and South Korea do they exceed 20 percent.

-Furthermore, in every nook and cranny left by organized faiths, all manner of unconventional spiritual and mystical practices are booming. There are more occult healers than medical doctors in Russia, 38 percent of the French believe in astrology, 35 percent of the Swiss agree that “some fortune tellers really can foresee the future,” and nearly everyone in Japan is careful to have their new car blessed by a Shinto priest.

Don’t be fooled by the fact that little of this looks Christian…the waters of supernatural hunger are being stirred worldwide and truth must surrender to Christ.insert 4

Another sign is the evil of people itself.   For example, Saul of Tarsus was at the peak of his terrorism when he was violently converted. What no one but God knew was the growing desperation inside of this soon to be Paul the Apostle.   Societies are often at their worst right before revival.

What we do not want to do is miss revival when it hits!

Dark times can absorb our faith in the power of God.  Many believers find themselves in a condition that is truly worse than they ever imagined.  Pangs of fear grip men of God who were once lions in the pulpit.  We invent doctrines that fit our disappointment.  We build ministries based on our lowered expectations.

You need a healthy respect for the power of dark times to rob us of faith.  It has happened to the best of us.

500 people saw Jesus Christ ascend into the clouds.  Think about that.  In the face of such absolute proof that Jesus was the Son of God, how could they ever doubt?

As He ascended he told them to wait in Jerusalem for the promise of the Holy Spirit.  Surely they would wait…right?  Astonishingly, only 120 were still waiting in the upper room on the Day of Pentecost.  How is it possible in the face of so great an assurance that they would falter and abandon their posts?

revival

Their world was filled with sudden terror from a wicked king, oppression from religious leaders, and tyranny from the Roman occupiers.  Their daily grind absorbed their zeal for the promises of God.

Do not be like the 380 people who missed one of the greatest moments in history.  Here are two things that you need to confess and say to your spirit so that you will not leave the upper room.

  1. Either it was always true or it was never true. Times do not alter truth. A lack of money does not change God’s word about prosperity.  Sickness does not nullify the fact of God’s healing power.  The evil of men does not overrule the supremacy of Christ.   If God promised you something, these dark times cannot stop their fulfillment.
  2. This will be like one of them. 1 Samuel 17: 4 But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep his father’s sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock, 35 I went out after it and struck it, and delivered the lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it. 36 Your servant has killed both lion and bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God.”

youth revivalIt is easy to say that evil is more intense and sophisticated than ever before.  Neither Saul, nor Israel had ever faced anything like Goliath before.  David said that it did not matter; this new threat would have the same outcome as all of the old threats.

Jesus is telling us to wait for the power that is about to break out no matter what.   Does revival look totally impossible to you?  Don’t worry, they all look that way until they happen.

THREE BIG REASONS MIRACLES WILL NOW APPEAR IN MAINSTREAM AMERICA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

MIRACLES WILL NOW APPEAR IN MAINSTREAM AMERICA

By Mario Murillo

Dear Reader,

Doctors will be amazed. Churches will be revolutionized. We will see the dead raised and the miraculous multiplication of food. Millions will experience wonder. But it is not all good news.

Here are the three reasons that miracles are coming that I was given by the Holy Spirit.

1.It is time because the Bible has been rejected. Outpourings of the Holy Spirit and clusters of miracles occur like weather patterns. Jesus said, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’;  and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times.  -Matthew 16:2,3.

The Bible which was a guiding force throughout our history has been set aside as a myth.  It has never been like this before.  Never have we seen such a wholesale rejection of the Word of God like this.  Psalm 119:126 says, “It is time for You to act oh God for they have nullified Your Word.”  We are now a nation without a Bible.   It is been evicted from our halls of government, schools, and even church.  It is time for God to act…and He will.insert one

America is now the foreign mission field.  The Holy Spirit will now work to confirm the Word with signs following. The miracles, healings, and supernatural signs have been a regular part of outreach in Africa, Asia and Latin America will now appear in America.  Resurrections, multiplication of food, angelic visitations    

2.It is time because judgment must begin at house of God. When these miracles come it will not be an endorsement of the current church. In fact, I believe that God is displeased with the overwhelming majority of what we call church in America.    

These signs and wonders will bring judgment.  They will divide churches.  They will expose sin.  They will even bring death.  Remember, Ananias and Sapphira were killed by the Holy Spirit not simply for stealing money, but for doing it in a time of miracles.

The double lives of carnal pastors will come to light.   The sickly grace message that has believers sleeping around and getting drunk will be plowed under by the true fire of God.  Evangelists who operate in false gifts by the power of familiar spirits will be exposed as fakes in front of their audiences.

Judgment indeed will begin at the house of God but it will not end there.  Look for public officials, celebrities and anti-God voices to be suddenly removed.

3.It is time because America is on the brink of destruction.  Mideast Israel ElectionThe White House is demonstrating breathtaking stupidity by betraying Israel.  Israel, to its eternal credit, rejected the stupidity of the White House and placed its fate into the hands of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jesus.

There is no doubt that America has crossed a deadline.  The White House is guilty of the most blatant animosity toward the things of God that we have seen in American history.

The executive branch of our government is literally shaking its fist at God and daring Him to intervene.  If God does not act now there will be no America.  But there will be a World War Three.

There is radical, remnant core who have not bowed their knee to Baal.  There is a growing army who have discarded dead religion, repented of a prayless life and will obey the voice of God.  They are the rightful heirs of a new anointing that will shatter the darkness.  They will flow in true gifts of power and speak only the counsel of God!

I believe that these miracles, signs and wonders will be upon us within a few weeks.  But never forget that this is sobering news…God is giving America one more chance.

Here is some amazing news from the San Francisco Bay Area

Blog 1

No one but God knew how many would show up.  Many things had happened since I last preached in the San Francisco Area.  For starters, we moved our ministry to Reno California.  Because of that and the fact that we had placed our property for sale, people assumed we were no longer going to reach out to the Bay Area.

The truth is we never ever planned to stop reaching out here.  We simply believed that we could not afford to own property in such an expensive area while attempting to build a world headquarters in Reno.

Blog 2

Then we got an offer on the building in Martinez.  Now I was haunted by all of the memories of what God did in that building.  I thought about what a strategic location for the Gospel it was.  I wondered aloud in prayer “surely Lord you can provide for both locations!”

I did not realize that it was God who was provoking these thoughts in me.  He confirmed my next move when He said “multiply, do not divide.”  Not only were we to keep the property in Martinez, we were to revolutionize it into a media stage for the whole world by live streaming Living Proof.

Blog 3

We told our real estate agent not to sell.  We began to take giant leaps of faith to make a fresh start in The San Francisco Area.  Then we took the boldest step of all.  I knew that we were not to do something basic with the stage, it had to be dramatic…it had to make a statement!

I met Richard Jones in Louisville Kentucky while doing an outreach at Evangel World Prayer Center with Pastor Bob Rodgers.  Richard is a muralist and a pastor who has done work for Joyce Meyers and Perry Stone. Richard does both murals and set design.  I talked to him about recreating the skyline of San Francisco on our stage and he got excited.  He flew out and buried himself in the work completing it, astonishingly, in just 10 days!

How would the people react to our return?  Whatever doubts I had were trampled under by the overflow crowd that filled the building within a few minutes.  We looked for every last chair we could find!  The people were excited.  They were stunned by the new stage.

The worship team from Star of David Ministries ignited the people.  My message talked about Good Friday and the miracle of Easter.  I reminded them of the prophecy that God gave me of an outpouring in San Francisco that was confirmed by Bob Dylan. blog 4

Then came the time to relaunch and declare the vision of this house.  I told them that every 90 days we would be back to conduct Living Proof Crusades on this stage and live stream them to the world.

This is when the healings broke out in the building.  This was without a doubt the most forceful presence of healing power that we had ever seen in the ARC.   After many were healed, I made the call for salvation.  Several marched forward to be saved!

The surprises and blessings were not done yet.  It was time for me to explain the most complex part of the vision.  I stated clearly that we had to expand our relationship with the churches in order to see revival.  I told them that we would call the pastors of the region together to win souls and heal the sick.

“However”, I said “the ARC should not be empty on Sunday Mornings.”  We had to plant a church.  My problem was to find a true spiritual son who truly cares for the people.  Paul had this same crisis until God provided: “Philippians 2: 20 I have no one else like Timothy, who genuinely cares about your welfare.21 All the others care only for themselves and not for what matters to Jesus Christ. 22 But you know how Timothy has proved himself. Like a son with his father, he has served with me in preaching the Good News.”

Blog 5

I introduced Edgar and Janay Banks and the crowd roared their approval.  I called elders and pastors to the front to pray, prophesy and ordain them into the ministry.  I will never forget the power that fell as we ordained them.

What will happen now is multiplication.  We will see our efforts in Reno, San Francisco and the rest of the nation accelerate until a holy fire engulfs our nation!  Wow!  All of this in just one night.

Power to Save a Nation Fell On Reno Nevada

by Mario Murillo

She had been bedridden most of the last 8 years.   Her body was attacking itself.  She takes the extraordinary step of faith to come to the Convention last night.   The Holy Spirit reveals in detail what is happening in her body and then this happened:   Power, raw power, living power coursed through her body and made her well, completely well.  She gleefully demonstrated the full and free use of her arms and legs.  She could not remember the last time that she felt no pain, no weakness and no despair.

Blog shot 1

A young generation of believers had never seen a miracle.  The impact was stunning and the effect will be lasting.

Lasting results are the hallmark of this first Living Proof World Convention. From the jump there was no doubt about the hunger of the people.  Hunger does not begin to describe it!  The unexpected crowd of spiritual warriors that came to Reno made it plain that they want America to be saved.

Worship led by Jason Michael, the worship team from Day3 Church in Los Banos California, and Alyssa Friend was powerful and irresistible.  The blend of voices and instruments did not just hit you. It went through you!

Dan Wilhelm of the NRA, Jim Carpenter of the Bridge of Yuba City, Sonny Lara Apostle of Star of David Ministries, , Pastor Stan Friend who leads C5 Church in Carson City NV, and Pastor Jim Willoughby of Echoes of Faith, Ontario CA all took a turn at igniting revival in the hearts of the people.

God spoke loud and clear.   The Holy Spirit emblazoned 3 messages in me. Each was a call.  The Power, The Work, The Stand.   Below is a summary of each message.

The Power: “I do not fear for Christianity, I fear for America.   Jesus said that the gates of hell would not prevail against the church.  Christianity will survive without America but America will not survive without Christianity.

I am also here to recruit you to be a part of our Living Proof Crusades.  These are citywide events that are ordained of God to introduce a new generation to Christ the miracle worker.

shot 7 copy

Let us begin by repenting of our greatest sin.   Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to run the Church, grow the Church.  He was sent to make us effective and relevant to the culture.

We are guilty of taking away His authority and running the church by our own wits.  We have failed miserably.  Sadly, even failure has not stopped men from controlling the things of God.

We must ask for power, we must wait for power.  We must seek utterly convinced that power is coming but at the same time brutally committed to wait as long as it takes.

It is all summed up in the words of Samuel to Saul: 1 Samuel 10:6 Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. 7 And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.”

bLOG 2

The Work:  It is time to let God deliver you from feverish activity and show us the real way to live. Nothing ever said it better than these words from God Calling:  The world has always seen service for me to be activity.  Only those near to me have seen that a life apart, of prayer, may, and does so often, accomplish more that all of the service man can offer me. If man lived apart with Me and only went out to serve at My direct command My Spirit could operate more and accomplish truly mighty things. The world does not need supermen but supernatural men.  People who will persistently turn the self out of their lives and let Divine Power work through them.  Do not fear unemployment! God always has plenty of work to be done and always pays His workers well.”

We will be judged.  It will be clear what we did in our own power and what God did through us.  1 Corinthians 3: 12  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.

Billy Graham said this, “God’s idea of strength and man’s idea of strength are opposite one another.

The Lord told Paul, “My strength is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Cor. 12:9) having learned this lesson, Paul could then say, “when I am weak then I am strong (2 Cor. 12:10).  A paradox?  Not really. Only when Paul admitted to his own weakness and was willing to get out of the way could God take over and work.bLOG 5

If we tried to do God’s will in our own strength, then we can take the credit for whatever gets accomplished. But that is in God’s way!  When we left his strength work through us, then he alone will get the glory– and that is as it should be.”

It is a happy day when we fall before God and declare our utter powerlessness to do the work of God.  Because he is God, He is not fooled by the avalanche of evil. He is not surprised by the sudden changes that have made life so difficult for us.

From the moment that hell belched out its latest threat against the church, the Holy Spirit began to unfold a strategy. We have nothing more to do than two fold ourselves into that strategy and live by the clear and loving commands that emerge from prayer and obedience.

  1. M. Bounds said, “What the Church needs today is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use — men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men — men of prayer.”

Blog 6

The Stand:  You have to stand for something.  We have all seen ministers on the Larry King Show or with Oprah completely cave in on their convictions when they were asked straight questions.   The Bible says:

Proverbs 25: 26 A righteous man who falters before the wicked Is like a murky spring and a polluted well.

In order to stand you must follow clear instructions.  “Put on the whole armor of God”, means exactly that: All!  It is tragic that many put on a part of the armor but feel entitled to all of the protection.

Ephesians 6: 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Blog 7

13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

Acts 5: 17 Then the high priest rose up, and all those who were with him (which is the sect of the Sadducees), and they were filled with indignation, 18 and laid their hands on the apostles and put them in the common prison. 19 But at night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said, 20 “Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life.”

God provoked the Sadducees to arrest all of the apostles.  The angel refreshed their focus.  Stand together, in the heart of the city, and tell all of the words of this life.

When we take a stand against our flesh, and then take a stand against the evil one, we are able to take a stand in a culture that hates our message.”

The end result of the convention was faith in the power of God to rescue America, a fresh endowment of power, and a rock solid conviction never to back down, slow down or back away from our preordained victory.

bLOG 8

It is only after the convention ended and I had my first full night of sleep in a blue moon does it really dawn on me what God has done.  Living Proof is now fully operational.  A family has formed that has a heart for the lost and America.  We all left the mediocre and the mundane behind forever.  We have seen the glory and received the power.  Amen!

WHY THIS IS MY FINAL DAILY BLOG

WHY THIS IS MY FINAL DAILY BLOG

By Mario Murillo

Here is the news:  I am ending my daily blogging but will still write one blog a week.  That blog will be posted on Thursday mornings.

Why the change?  I look back and I honestly do not know how I did it.   Can you imagine trying to post a new blog every day for 3 years on a busy schedule?    And it’s not like the interest in the blog is waning.  We had nearly 50,000 people read the blog in the last 28 days!

Here are the reasons that I am ending the daily blog.

Living Proof Reno Slide

1.We will launch our Living Proof Crusades at our World Convention in Reno on March 30 and 31, 2015. My schedule of crusades after that will make it impossible to post a daily blog.  Prayer will be the biggest reason I cannot blog every day.   The increased focus on winning the lost and healing the sick will summon me to expanded and intensified intercession.

Good Friday Miracle Rally

2.We are reopening the ARC in Martinez, California on Good Friday April 3. This is an outreach center to the San Francisco Area that will also be a studio to live stream Living Proof to the World. We need to keep a footprint in this bastion of liberalism and godlessness.   This is a God event center that is getting a dramatic makeover.

3. I hate my writing. I cringe at what happens when you write on the fly.  Hopefully I will be able to write better if I have time to look at it more than once.  I cannot promise you Pulitzer Prize winning prose but at least I will be able to edit my writing.

4. To expose the evil in our government and in false religion requires more focus. Do not think for a moment that I am backing down from exposing the spirit of Antichrist where I see it. I backed off of Obama in order to train my guns on other notable targets.  I am going from machine gunner to sniper and that means I must pick my targets with care.

September 8

5.The blogs need to provide positive solutions. America is not hopeless.  We have not lost the battle.  As I said to you in the blog about Hillary, the real question is not whether America can be saved, but rather how we can think that this great nation that has shared Christ with the world for centuries, that has even rebuilt the nations who warred against us, and who has defended Israel, will not be visited by a special miracle at this time.  I pity the fool who believes that they can take down this nation without a furious fight from God himself. 

eagle

This blog needs to chronicle the acts of God as they unfold.  We can reverse the damage of Obama, Islam, atheism and false Christianity. 

It has indeed been an amazing run but I would not be surprised if we end up with a greater impact with one blog a week than 7 blogs a week.   I am humbled that over a million people have read the blog and I am excited about the future of this blog.   Thank you for making this an amazing tool.

Have I Abandoned Bay Area Revival?

San Francisco, CA, USA

 

 

Have I Abandoned Bay Area Revival?

 

By Mario Murillo

I have moved to Reno.  At the same time, there have come out the East Coast some renewed prophecies of the destruction of San Francisco.  Some have taken this to mean that I have abandoned the quest for revival in the Bay Area. Here is the real story.

Some pastors who embrace San Francisco values and believe it is never right to criticize Obama made it clear to me that I was no longer welcome in the Bay Area.  I did not take them seriously because they do not represent the overwhelming majority of ministers that I know and love in this region.

Moreover, they were never a factor in my decision to move.  That decision was already made.  They were used by God to do something completely different. I now understand why the Holy Spirit said “honor their request and leave.”  My ties to San Francisco are very deep and when my soul was uprooted it was emotionally traumatic. God used their request and said to me “honor their request and leave,” to give me the emotional release that I needed to complete the move.

 

Their actions released me from a personal vow I made to defer to them on certain issues.  I am now free to confront those issues.

However, I am not released from the quest for Bay Area revival.  I do not agree with the predictions of doom over the city.  The prophecy that moves me is the word about revival that came through Bob Dylan.  It still burns in my soul! That is why we still own property in Martinez with an active prayer group there that meets every Wednesday at noon to seek revival.

I actually believe that our base of operation in Reno will make us even more effective in the Bay Area.  So, now hear this…if you want to win souls, heal the sick, pray for revival and launch outreaches in the San Francisco Bay Area we are your friend and ally.

In fact, we are returning Sunday November 2, 10AM and 6PM to Living Word Family Church to add fuel to the Santa Rosa Fire! 

Everything within tells me that God is going to pour out His Spirit on the Bay Area and that is why He sifting His church. However, the time is short.  Those who refuse to speak the counsel of the Holy Spirit will be sidelined.  Those who have a heart to obey and confront evil will be given greater power!

Not only are we not abandoning the army of God in the Bay Area, we are re-positioning ourselves in order to be a greater force than ever in the quest for a moral awakening both in the Bay Area and all across America.
