A NEW PRAYER ALERT FOR MARIO MURILLO

This is a new prayer alert.  We are asking prayer for Mario Murillo.  We are facing a fresh challenge.  As we have reported to you, he was improving, but something happened two days ago.
The pain reappeared—not by any accident, but mysteriously—even though Mario followed a strict regimen required for recovery.  The cause is unknown to doctors but not to God.  That is why we are appealing to all of the friends of this ministry for fervent prayer.  We need a miracle.
We will never give glory to the enemy but we do recognize when he attacks.  Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 2: 18: “We wanted to come to you—I, Paul, tried over and over again—and Satan stopped us.”
This is a vicious attack to stop soul winning.  In this dark time for our nation, Satan is fully aware of the historic doors to win the lost that have opened to Mario Murillo Ministries.  Just as our voice was about to heard, he attacked.
We are asking for you to pray specifically.  Mario is keen on finding the root cause of his condition so that he can prevent it in the future.  If it is to be through a doctor—pray, we find the right doctor.  We need a physician who is not focused on injections and surgery but on a wider understanding of the spine and hip.
Ask for an instantaneous healing so that God may be glorified in the immediate restoration of our momentum to win the lost.
We need special prayer for Mechelle Murillo.  The constant care of her husband can be exhausting.  We do not need the evil one to create anymore health issues.  Pray for her strength.  Pray protection over her.  Pray she is able to rest.
Ministries that preach the Gospel with signs and wonders are often hesitant to report illness.  That has never been Mario’s style.  He believes in total transparency.  If you can trust us to tell you the truth about attacks, you can also trust us when we tell you about miracles.  After all, we are in a war and the Bible says, “we have this treasure in earthen vessels.”
Mario’s spirit is not broken.  In fact, this attack is building a fire in his soul to take even greater vengeance on the devil by winning even more souls and seeing more miracles of healing.
Your prayers are far more urgent than you know.  Paul said, “For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ.” –    Philippians 1:19.   Through your prayers knitted with ours, we shall see a miracle.  Thank you for praying and for sharing this alert with others.  God bless you!  -MMM

BREAKING NEWS ABOUT LAS VEGAS

We are coming to Las Vegas to win the lost and heal the sick on a scale we have never known.  We are going where gangs operate.  We are going where addicts languish.  We are going where the homeless sit in despair.  This Living Proof Tent Crusade will feature the widest range of ministries we have ever assembled.
We are going in the power of God.  Our mission, is to open the flood gates of heaven on the abyss of human suffering.  Never—and I mean never—has the fire for winning souls burned so hot within me.
Satan knew all of this, and viciously attacked me.  Many of you know what happened. After standing for 4 crusade services back to back—some lasting 3 hours—I felt a strange pain in my left leg and spine. After a long flight home it became excruciating.
This is extremely rare. I have been blessed with strength to endure brutal schedules for over 50 years. I have flown 6 million miles on American Airlines.  That doesn’t the miles on many other airlines.

  This became the greatest test ever.  After 3 doctors, X-rays, cat scan, and an MRI they were still guessing about the source of my pain.
The amount of intercession that has gone up for me is humbling and convicting.  This ordeal hardened my resolve. I told Satan, “there is no version of this where you win.”  I confessed, that the same power that flows in our meetings, will overshadow me through the prayers of the saints.
While doctors theorize, God works.  Every time people pray over me, the pain decreases and mobility increases.  Could I have been instantaneously healed?  Of course!  But a healing is a healing no matter how it comes.

 

There is something I am looking forward to.  It drives my recovery.  On Saturday March 24th we will serve lunch to pastors and leaders in the Las Vegas area.  It will be my honor to open my heart about the miracle I expect in April.  The luncheon is free but we need your reservation to order the food.  Call 775 238 3473 to reserve your place at this luncheon.
Not only this, but that night we will have a night of miracles and worship that is open to the public.
Advertisers say what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.  We say, what happens here will not stay here!  It will not stay in Vegas or even in Nevada.  Lord let revival fire sweep the land!

SPECIAL PRAYER ALERT

I am in a situation that is rare for me.  After much prayer I knew a statement had to be made.  Most of all, I am making it because it seemed good to the Holy Spirit. This is a special prayer alert to all of our family, friends and partners.  Here’s what happened:
After standing for 4 crusade services back to back—some lasting 3 hours—I felt a strange, and growing tinge of pain in my left leg. After a long flight home it became excruciating.  It centralized around the hip.
My doctor says it is most likely a stress fracture.  That would mean 4-6 weeks of being flat on my back, followed by physical therapy.  However, part of the problem still remains a mystery. 
I told you this is rare because, in 50 years of preaching, I have been blessed with unusual strength in the most strenuous of schedules. I have flown 6 million miles on American Airlines—not including many other airlines.
This is when the devil tries to play with your mind.  I have already missed two precious events—events that meant a lot to me and our mission.  I was to be at Bethel Church in Redding and then at TBN.

Now let me make my strong confession to this crisis, I confess:
There is no version of this where the enemy wins.  I am standing in the confidence that the same power that is so richly present in our meetings will now overshadow me through your prayers. 
I will either spend the time learning new lessons, writing, and getting closer to my beloved Jesus.  Or, I will rise and walk Jesus’ name. In either case, the devil loses big time.  I have peace that I came by this condition honestly— stomping on the devil’s head. 
Your prayers mean everything to me just now.  I want to go so far as to ask you to pray for these specific things:
Prayer for Mechelle: Most of all, I must ask special prayer for my wife who is caring for me during this ordeal.  She is working so hard to manage so many things.  Please pray for strength and for protection of her health.
Healing:  Not so much because I want to be out of pain but because I need to get back to the work of the Lord.
Protection of our momentum:  We are on the cusp of winning untold numbers of young at risk souls.  Beginning in Las Vegas, we believe, we will see a harvest not seen since the Jesus Movement of the 1970’s.  Oh how the devil hates that!
Pray for my staff.  They are swamped by the dizzying changes and all of the potential chaos that can come in these situations.
Finally, missing events costs us vital support but we have always trusted God as our source.  I am most concerned for those around me because I know the warfare this incident has unleashed.   My confession is that combined with your prayers, we will have everything we need and the work will be even stronger than ever.
Please leave word that you are praying.  Your note will strengthen my wife, family and staff.
I close with these words from Paul: “But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel…Philippians 1:12

WHY WE HAVE HOPE FOR AMERICA

Let us tell you why we have hope for America.  As ministers of the Gospel we must take stands that are not popular.  Often, we must warn, correct, and give out bad news.  There is no way around the fact that many things threaten our faith and our freedom.  But there is also hope—hope for America.

We see the mighty hand of God working in wondrous ways—even in this dark time.  When we pray, we feel the fierce love of God for America.  We can hear Him saying, “hold on, I have not yet begun to fight for America.”  We see signs that encourage our faith.  We refuse to let anything steal our joy as we travel this great nation for Christ.  Let us give you the reasons for our hope.

Something supernatural is in our soil.  Michael Medved has identified 16 times America should have been destroyed but was spared at the last moment.  However, it is the way America was saved that is mind-boggling.  Relief literally came out of nowhere.Our hope is that God finishes what He starts.  He established this nation with an impossible victory over Britain.  He has repeated His acts of sovereign mercy again, and again.  Even when things looked much worse than today—and we didn’t deserve it—God turned circumstances in our favor and turned our hearts back to Him.  That is our hope.

Millions are praying for revival.  If Abraham’s math is correct, God would have saved Sodom and Gomorrah if just 12 righteous were found.  Despite the widespread number of lukewarm believers and watered-down preaching—there is a vibrant core of Christians who are claiming our nation through fervent intercession.  In fact, Daniel stood alone in prayer and fasting and forced the heart of King Cyrus to release Israel.  Millions are praying.  That corporate cry is not being ignored.

Extremes in the media and other anti-God agencies are backfiring.  The bias against God has been in the media for decades. The difference now is the towering overreach—the blatant bias—the deranged hatred is so intense they can’t hide it.  Time was, they could shape public opinion and call it news.  In their current melt down, they report banalities and keep reporting them even after they are proven false.  The audience looks on with shock and pity and asks, “where is the truth?”

The young are turning to Christ. The great vacuum created by leftist ideology leaves young souls groping for new life.  We see young souls coming forward from all over the tent.  They come quickly, they come forcefully, they come for nothing less than Jesus.   They dispel the lies Satan is saying about this generation.  When it comes to young people, it doesn’t take long for a small fire to grow into a widespread movement.

Signs, wonders and miracles are appearing in convincing scriptural order.  Miracles are not new.  Healings have been with us all along.  The difference now is they are being demonstrated in greater measure and with stronger Bible based preaching.  This makes them more contagious to the lost and more devastating to the enemy.

There you have it…our great hope for America.  There is no denying it will be a hard battle.  But if God be for us who can be against us?  God bless you, Mario and Mechelle Murillo

THE MESSAGE BEHIND THE SHIRT

Look at message on the shirt.  Is it an offensive in your face message?  No, it is a desperately needed in your heart message.  So, before you judge, get the message behind the shirt.
Let’s begin by understanding something about Satan.  He fears. He fears things deeply.  In fact, his fears are far deeper than yours will ever be.  He fears many things.
Near the top of his list of fears is this one: He fears the genuine Christian.  He understands how contagious a real believer—free of both anger and sin—can be to a generation.  People feel things around such a person.  People find themselves wanting whatever a true believer carries.
I wrote a book entitled I am the Christian the Devil warned you about.  I’ll admit it is not my best effort.  Parts of it make me wince.  But just because I didn’t do a masterful job on the story, doesn’t mean the message isn’t important.
Anyway, in the book there is an encounter with Satan right in his lair.   The protagonist, Daniel is invisible to Satan (Daniel doesn’t know why).  He hears Satan betray one of his greatest fears.  (Before you peruse an early attempt at writing, remember kindness is one the fruits of the Spirit.)
“How can I describe to you the strange sense of destiny I felt? To know that I was standing before the elite of hell, Hearing, their plans, sensing their fears, and yet be totally hidden from their view? I listened with intense anticipation to what Satan would admit next.
‘One authentic Christian,’ he wailed, ‘in which Christ works without resistance is all that it would take to disrupt everything.’ The Father of Lies contorted as if he was having a momentary seizure.  His minions reeled for they had never heard him concede to saying the name of the Lord.
Lucifer continued, ‘One true Christian, rightly fitted for war, will be the ruin of us. Listen, you banal beasts, if just one could read and discover how to ask and then receive, if just one would embrace their potential . . . but most of all if just one were to discover the One who is ever with them to make them strong, wise, and miraculous, then . . .’ At the mention of God’s Spirit, the entire company involuntarily dropped and ducked for cover…”
For this reason, Satan uses most of his energy to create imbalance.  If enough Christians are created and stay in their natural state, revival is inevitable.  Satan understands that revival is a weapon of mass conversion.
As the master of extremes, he’ll make things important to churches that are utterly trivial.  He makes leaders jealous of each other, so they’ll lose their first love—love that would compel the unchurched to be saved.  He sends great temptation to visible Christians, so they will fall and be called hypocrites.  I could go on and on.
If discrediting the Bible is his top priority preventing real Christians is next.  What do people who fear do a lot of?  They lie, and they gossip.  Gossip is rooted in fear and jealously.
A real Christian reminds Satan of the two things that cause him the most agony:  The fellowship he lost and the judgement he is about to gain.
At this moment Satan is broadcasting a global subliminal message: Watch out for the real Christian—the loving Christian—the joyous and holy Christian.  If you wish to stay an atheist—if you wish to remain addicted, miserable and empty…don’t go near one of these.
We aren’t slamming anyone but Satan.  So, we say with a smile and a heart full of love.  You know that Christian that Satan told you to avoid?  That would be me.

The moment we’ve waited for is here

I asked you to pray.  God sent the answer!  The moment we’ve waited for is here—something I have waited for all my life is here.  It was a dream hidden in the deep recesses of my soul.  It could not have arrived at a more pivotal moment.  It is our turning point. 

OUR NEW TENT IS GOING UP IN FRESNO!  Mario Murillo Ministries along with Frank Saldana and Inner-City Action and many local ministries are coming to Fresno.  We are setting up our tent on October 18th and it will be up until at least October 24th.

Our message to Fresno is bold!  “America can’t solve addiction, violence, poverty, and injustice.  Only one thing can heal us.  Jesus proved He was the Son of God by doing the things no one has ever done. Let us prove His miracle can still happen to you.  Start the life you’ve always wanted.”

The entire spectrum of human need will be touched.  Food and clothing for the needy.  Tangible opportunities for freedom from poverty and addiction.  The Holy Spirit will heal and deliver all who need miracles. 

Not only this but a revival fire with engulf the church.   Everything is set.  We have the tent.  We have the provisions.  The only thing left to do is decide on the exact tent location.  We have three options.  We will know within two days.

The miracle began to unfold while I was with Rick Wiles on the global news network TRUNEWS.   We had just finished a poignant and controversial radio interview.  He looked at me and asked, “Is there anything your ministry needs?”

Before I could answer, he asked, “Can you use a tent?”  He might has well have asked, “Can nitro use glycerin?”  He had no idea—only God and my wife had any idea how I ached for a tent.  Why a tent?

Rick Wiles did not just give us a tent—he gave us a brand new 10,000-square foot tent cathedral.  And—can you believe it—he threw in 1,000 plush folding chairs that came out of the sky boxes of an NFL stadium.  I couldn’t breathe because of the excitement I felt.

Rick and TRUNEWS also began sending us monthly sacrificial gifts toward our million-dollar goal.  Then they hired two 60-foot semis to transport the tent and chairs all the way from Vero Beach, Florida to Reno, Nevada.

This is the moment we have been waiting for: To connect hearts with pastors and leaders in a desperate city—to have the tent and equipment to take to that city—to secure the ground needed for an extended invasion—to gather an army from across America to help us apply the healing balm of the Gospel to an open wound. 

It is with epic excitement that we announce our first Living Proof Crusade in our new tent!

WHAT IS UP WITH THIS SIGN?

What possessed a church to put up a sign like this in a cynical and cold world, especially in Los Angeles?  But is that right?  Is it right to offer hope to those who medical science cannot help?  Is it right to raise expectations to those who have given up on everything else?

What is up with this sign? Is it right to offer  miracle healing to a skeptical public?

By Mario Murillo 

When that young campus radical put his hands on my throat, I know, neither he, nor I, understood the rage in his hands.  Evil understood clearly what was at stake.  It knows the souls that can be saved, and the bodies that would be healed, if any miracle ministry, anywhere, is born.

In a moment, i’ll explain why my mind races back to that fateful day in Berkeley.

All afternoon I paced and prayed on the hillside above the campus of 44,000 students.  Two violent forces were colliding within me.  The burning question?  How do I reach a generation of students bent on Marxist revolution?  What reminded me of that day?   The fact that we now dealing with a generation that is, once again, bent on Marxist revolution.

On that hill, so many years ago, one inner voice argued that I must study the great modern apologists of the faith.  I should immerse myself in Francis Schaeffer, C.S. Lewis, and G.K. Chesterton.   The other voice said simply, “it is not by might nor by power but by my spirit.”

That night I would get my answer–emphatically.   It happened in front of the Student Union Building of Cal Berkeley at about 11PM.   I was sharing my “apologetic faith” with a flower child.  In the darkness, I could not see the angry radical who was stealing up behind me.

This atheist Goliath grabbed me by the neck and proceeded to choke the life out of me. Now the words of great Christian intellectuals were useless.  There was a demon fueling his rage.

God ordered me to take my stand in the power of the Spirit. In my own faltering way I did.   My assailant suddenly stopped and stood stunned by something behind me in the shadows.  To this day I do not know what startled him, I only know that I ran, and as I ran I affirmed my commitment to the Supernatural Gospel of Christ.

first miracle services in Berkeley

That what when we began telling people they could come and be healed.  But is that right?  Is it right to offer hope to those who medical science cannot help?  Is it right to raise expectations to those who have given up on everything else?

The world began to change when Jesus stood and read these words from the book of Isaiah:  Luke 4: 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; 19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

1. He was hanging out a shingle:   When you start a business you do what is called hanging out a shingle.    A Shingle is a small signboard that indicates a professional office. The world began to change when Jesus stood and read these words.

He was announcing the start and the content of His miracle ministry and He did it publicly.   Here are 6 targets of His ministry:

Give good news to the poor.

Heal the broken hearted.

Proclaim liberty to the captives.

Recovery of sight to the blind.

To set at liberty those who are oppressed.

To declare the time of God’s favor.

2.  He announces by what authority He is announcing this.

“Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”  What an astounding statement that is!   Every Jew knew that verse.  Everyone in Israel has been waiting for that verse to be fulfilled and Jesus flat out says that He is fulfilling it. Talk about raising the hopes of the people!

Yet it is right that He does this so that the miracles can be released.  And that is precisely what the Church of Jesus should do.  We must go public about the resurrection of Jesus did to the works of Satan and all of the benefits of the Gospel.

3.  God was with Him in this project. Acts 10:38 says, “Jesus went about doing good healing all who were oppressed of the devil for God was with Him.  Jesus was not acting on His own initiative.

week-12-slide-3

Likewise, we are the continuation of Christ’s war on the works of Satan.  We too must make a public announcement, we must set the time and the place that the Holy Spirit has designated for the supernatural to appear.

Having settled the question in Berkeley we announced our first healing rally.  I was such a newbie that I stood in front of the audience frozen in fear.  What I did not know yet is that God rewards those who show up for war.

In the crowd was a young man lying unconscious on a couch at the back of the chapel.  He had shot a mixture of LSD and Heroin and it made him comatose.   Supernaturally, he woke up and his symptoms vanished.   He came to the front and knelt in utter adoration of God.   This single healing launched ten years of harvest on that university campus.

So today I am in prayer because we have gone very public in the Inland Empire of Southern California.  Thousands of card invitations have been given directly to the public and they plainly state that miracles will happen in the meetings.

If this was a human endeavor I would be panicking right now instead I am clothed with a divine peace.  Nothing man can say or do will be able to undo the conviction that I feel that this is a God event.

Let Church leadership everywhere listen from their heart.  If ever I knew that Jesus was trying to get a message through it is this:  Seek Him now.  Set a date at His bidding.  Prepare your people for signs and wonders.  Vow to give all glory to God.  Invite to public to come and see the awesomeness of our God!
