Undeniable healing miracles

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

Here are the three reasons why 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 dismissed by many as being a mere collection of myths.  It has never been this bad before.  Never have we seen such a wholesale rejection of the Word of God as we do today.  Psalm 119:126 says, “It is time for You to act O God, for they have nullified Your Word.”  We are now a nation without the Bible.  It has been evicted from our halls of government, schools, and even our churches—which is why it is time for God to act…and He will!

It was my honor to be on It’s Supernatural with Sid Roth. I felt I made a wonderful new friend. During the broadcast, he said that America and the world would see a mighty outpouring of Glory resulting in the greater works that Jesus mentioned in John 12.

America is now the foreign mission field and therefore the Holy Spirit will soon begin to work to confirm the Word, with signs following. The miracles, healings, and supernatural signs that have been a regular part of Christian outreach in Africa, Asia, and Latin America will now appear in North America.  Resurrections, multiplication of food, angelic visitations, visions, dreams, and prophecy will be reported.

Already, the power and glory that we believe is coming is coming in increased manifestations in our tent, bringing crowds of lost souls that would never enter a church.

 2. It is time: because “judgment must begin at house of God.” (see 1 Peter 4:17) 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 ‘Churchianity’ in America.

The signs and wonders that are coming 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 and lying about it, but for doing it in a time of miracles.

The double lives of carnal pastors will come to light.  The message of “greasy grace” that has believers committing every sexual sin there is, as well as 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.  Watch for public officials, celebrities, and anti-God voices to be suddenly removed.

3. It is time: because America is on the brink of destruction.  Democrats are demonstrating breathtaking stupidity by betraying Israel.  Israel, to its eternal credit, has rejected the stupidity of the House Democrats, and placed its fate into the hands of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jesus. Donald Trump said, “House Democrats want to take action against Israel because it is fighting back against two (maybe four) people that have said unthinkably bad things about it & the Israeli people. Dems have such disdain for Israel! What happened? AOC Plus 4 is the new face of the Democrat Party!”

Fresno is a sign of the veil being lifted off of the public. The Central Valley now sees how Sacramento victimized them. Here is a picture of the overflow crowd in Fresno who saw mighty signs and wonders.

There is no doubt that America has crossed a line in the sand.  The Leftist movement is guilty of the most blatant animosity toward the things of God that we have seen in American history.

Secular Progressives are literally shaking their 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.

Yet, there is a radical, remnant core, who have not bowed their knee to Baal.  There is a growing army who have discarded dead religion, repented of a prayer-less life, and who 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 very soon.  But never forget that this is sobering news, and that God is giving America one more chance.

GOD FALLS ON FRESNO

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What more could we have asked?

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

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

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

Breaking News about Reno

THE SECRET ABOUT RENO NEVADA IS OUT! Those who attended our World Convention with Perry Stone remember. They remember how an army no one really knew about formed with a deep  burning for revival, signs and wonders, and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.   We knew this army couldn’t stop or be contained in a convention. This had to continue.  So, on Sunday September 8th at 6 PM, at Faith Alive, it will continue!
In fact, I believe it will increase. I believe we will see an even deeper level of God’s Glory and power.
You can join me and on-fire believers from Reno, Sparks, and Carson City for a mighty night of miracles. That’s not all!  The worship team that led worship at the World Convention will be back with us for this night. This night might sound like a reunion of the convention, but it is actually a continuation!

This is the perfect setting to bring those who need Christ because there will be a direct word with confirming signs that will demonstrate the reality of Christ. It is also the right atmosphere for believers, pastors and leaders to be encouraged, strengthened, and receive greater power.
Bring those who need healing in their body. We know Jesus will be present through the power of the Holy Spirit to make you or someone you love completely whole!
I will be returning to Reno after an amazing tour of the East Coast that includes a guest appearance on It’s Supernatural with Sid Roth, and speaking at Lance Wallnau’s Extreme Dream Convention at the Trump Conference center in Washington D.C.  I know I will have exciting news for you!
But here’s the most urgent part of my message to you: Two things will decide the size of our impact: prayer and personally bringing people.
Christians have evangelized for thousands of years.  In that time, knowledge and technology has exploded.  Yet, these two forces remain omnipotent.

Mark 6: 55 says, “they ran through that whole surrounding region and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was.” That last phrase says it all!
On this night, here will be wonderful music, powerful messages and surprises.  But, the greatest reason to bring people is because we know Jesus will be there.
The moment you step inside Faith Alive, the music, the message, the presence of God will release your faith to receive something amazing. Come and bring someone you love.
Remember.  All seats are free.  We start at 6 PM on Sunday.  Let’s us pray for those you are bringing for healing or deliverance.  Call us at 775 238 3473
This all adds up to one inescapable conclusion: you don’t want to miss this night! Circle the date. Make your plans not only to come but to bring someone who needs a miracle. See you there!

P.S. I am also preaching at 10 AM at Faith Alive. I welcome you if this is your church home or if you are looking for a church home. Thank you for being faithful to your church. MM

THE GREATEST MIRACLE HEALING

How can it be the greatest? I have seen blind eyes opened, and paralyzed limbs healed, so how can this miracle be the greatest? Let me tell you the story.

It all began with a devastating phone call. The woman on the other end told me a tragic story. She raised eight children in the ghetto. She endured unspeakable trials. She had faithfully served Christ and prayed diligently for each of her children. What she could not give them in material things, she more than made up for with her love.

She cleared her throat, and haltingly told me of the doctor’s report.  It sounded like a death sentence. They had found cancer in her chest which had also spread to her back and her lymph nodes.

She faced a terrible choice.  Chemotherapy would be utterly horrible because she was so thin and she is in her late 80s. But, without chemo, she faced a slow, agonizing, and certain death by cancer.

I was aware of her condition from the very beginning of her ordeal. This call hit me so hard that I could feel my knees buckle. Why you ask? This call was from my mother. 

All of her sons, daughters, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were grief stricken. We all knew that her death would leave a crater of sorrow for all of us that would be beyond words.

Something rose up in me. My mom and I began praying over the phone. I felt a holy rage, like I had never known, rising within my spirit. My words were not just forceful, they were volcanic. I knew that Satan was challenging my family and that fear was trying to consume us.

I came to Jesus on behalf of my mom. Then I spoke to her and went through the Word of God declaring her healing. I felt bold to tell her to resist the devil and rebuke the cancer. I told her she would be tested, but to stand strong on the promises of God.  Heaven overshadowed us, and the presence of God was undeniable.

Something happened to her. Her fear vanished. Her sense of focus and determination was super-human.

The next few weeks were a trial by fire, but she was amazing—confessing the Word, rebuking every negative thought, and standing strong.

Then came that fateful day when she went to see her doctor. The doctor ran the routine tests to monitor the size of the cancer. Later that day, I got her call.

My mother told me that when the doctor came back with the results, it was shocking. The red-faced doctor said, “I can’t find any cancer. None at all.” My mom smiled at the doctor, and explained what had happened.  Then my mom witnessed to her about the healing power of Christ.

Our family is overcome by the goodness and mercy of God. No one else gets the credit or the glory for this astonishing miracle.

Why is this the greatest miracle healing I have ever seen? BECAUSE THIS IS MY MOM.  And today, July 24th is my mom’s birthday.  Happy Birthday, miracle mom. I love you!

P.S. As part of my celebration of this great miracle, I want your prayer requests. Just because we are celebrating does not mean we have forgotten the many who are warring against sickness. We want to pray for you, and those you love, to receive a healing miracle.  Please leave a prayer request in the comments section. We will pray!

 

Building something great

I have been pondering these questions:

Can we overcome the evil that is rampant in our times and do something big for God?

Can visionaries still come to the forefront and seize the day?

Can true prophets arise, and speak the heart of God to a dying world?

If you’re looking for a cheap pep talk—a soothing shortcut—or the flattering words of the God-is-our- Daddy Movement—if you think serving God is just a tongues-talking Candy Land game, then save us both time, and ease on back into your cocoon.

But if you look at the present system of church and feel empty—if there is an inner fire that tells you “THIS IS NOT IT!  THERE HAS TO BE MORE!” —you have come to the right place.

Our journey begins with a sad joke.  A mechanically challenged young man who wants to cut some firewood goes into a hardware store.  He asks the store clerk for advice.  After being shown the chain saws, the clerk says, “With a chain saw you can cut entire cords of wood in no time.”  Sold.

The young man returns three days later angry and frustrated. “You told me I could cut cords of wood.  All I got was a few lousy sticks, and this thing is way too heavy to handle.”  Baffled, the clerk grabs the saw, yanks the pullcord and the saw roars to life.  The young man asks, “What’s that noise?”

In the greatest moral war America has ever faced, the church is trying to saw wood with a giant unstarted chainsaw.   To fight that war, our Christian Colleges insist on graduating tepid troops of singing psychologists and grinning marketers.

 Secret Number One:  Separate yourself.   There is a promise in the Bible that is timeless, omnipotent, and unstoppable.  It is a promise that transcends the mad railings of evil men, dark times, and limited resources.  It is a promise that will prevail in any culture, and at any time. Read the promise carefully:

2 Timothy 2:20 “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 21 Therefore, if anyone cleanses (separates) himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. 22 Now, flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”

Those words were not written to some surfer in the 1960’s living in a bubble, but to a young leader embarking on ministry in the midst of the Roman Empire, facing both lash and lions.

Separate yourself from the drunken compromised preachers of today.  Separate yourself from shallow faith.  Separate yourself from those who need “a daily word from the Lord”—turning prophecy into an ecclesiastical horoscope.  Separate yourself from those who want to “activate gifts” without pressing in to know the heart of God.  If you do these things, a great work will have already begun.

 Secret Number Two: Learn practical dependency on the Holy Spirit.  Satan’s best work is not done by atheists, but by misguided Christians.  The devil prizes above all else his ability to get ministers to take matters into their own hands—to build by their own wits—and build the perfect disguise.  The current whited sepulchers are vast empires bearing Christian labels.  These are machines God never built.  They are trophies of hell meant to distract the Body of Christ, and waste time and money.

John 16:13: “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. 15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore, I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.”

What do you see in those verses?  They should both bless and horrify you.  All the authority to build, direct, provide, strengthen and guide the church was vested in the Holy Spirit.  We have offended a precious friend!  We have driven away the very Person we needed most!

The American church thrashes about like a child in a kiddy pool, never guessing what she is doing wrong.  She hired marketers when she could have simply asked the Holy Spirit. She pointed to false success to justify her existence.  We don’t need a superman. We need supernatural men and women filled with the Holy Spirit.

You must be baptized in the Spirit and then learn to be led of the Spirit.

 Secret Number Three: Trust the process. God invented planning. Therefore, the Holy Spirit will give you a plan. The trick is, you can’t take shortcuts. You won’t always see the logic.  And you may grow weary and even come to doubt the sanity of your course.

You won’t be allowed to do things that others get away with.  You will be driven to prayer and into the Word of God over every step you take. You are taking the road least traveled.

Do what God tells you to do, and never stop doing it.  Again: Trust the process.  No matter how your guidance seems to go against the grain, obey His voice!  When you have no money but God says invest it in a vision—do it!  When close associates turn on you—still do it!  Trust the process.  When you face a withering storm of criticism because of your choice, keep going forward.

Follow these three secrets. Then, look around.  You will see people doing mighty works of God in the Earth.  You will see the glaring difference between those who are fueled by the Holy Spirit and those who are not.

But, you ask, “Will these secrets work in this day and age?”  Yes! They always have and they always will!

 

TIME TO TALK

City after city in California has been hit by God.  In Marysville, He proved there was a harvest in California. In Paradise, He proved that sorrow and devastation will be healed. In Stockton, He proved that hate, violence, and addiction cannot stop God. Now the momentum for California is intensifying.

Let’s look back at some important facts: Five years ago, I had a dream. In the dream, I hovered over the State of California and saw Highway 99, from beginning to end, running down the great Central Valley. Before my eyes, it became a river, and a voice said, “This is the corridor of my Glory.”

There were trees on either side of this river which were bringing healing to the sick, and hope overwhelmed the poor and forgotten. “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light…”

I asked an artist to try and capture what I saw in the dream and this comes fairly close.

Five years later the Holy Spirit said to take our tent down that corridor and to watch Him do the impossible.

But at each point as we tried to fulfill this mandate from the Lord, we crashed into the impossible.  And each time God destroyed the barriers, right before our very eyes.

Marysville was heavily resisted, but became a harvest field overflowing with souls.

Paradise was beyond impossible, if there is such a thing. The city had been destroyed and the people had gone to other cities to live.  To this day no one can explain how the tent was full night after night.  And, we saw powerful, miraculous healings and many people were born again!

Stockton saw 17 murders during the time we reached out to that city. A stray bullet hit the truck of one our leaders.  Still, we did not back down, and neither did the Lord−He brought in many lost souls and many brave Christians. When the fire marshal ordered us to take away the sides of the tent, which meant we would only have a roof, I thought it was an invitation for disaster.  Instead, it backfired on the enemy. The sound of worship, preaching, and miracles were broadcast across the vast park, and acted like a fishing net for the Gospel!

These tent meetings have brought desperately needed encouragement to the Body of Christ that is laboring in these cities. A fresh fire and unity has come among the pastors. Most of the lost who found Jesus had never seen anything like these meetings.

But the news gets even better, for, now it is time for me to talk to you about Fresno, California.  Fresno is so hard hit by crime, that at this moment they are raising money to pay gang members not to shoot each other. I kid you not—hiring them to not kill each other−which reeks of total surrender on the part of city officials.

Two years ago, one politician in Fresno got mad at us for revealing the true numbers of homeless who were living on the streets, and the amount of violence and despair that were a daily occurrence in that city. He actually fought to keep us out of the city. He used his influence to block us from getting a permit for the tent. But as Jesus said, “The gates of hell will not prevail against you.” And they didn’t.

We went ahead, and we saw an amazing meeting at Fink White Park. Now we are going after the most amazing tent site we have ever seen. I can’t tell you about it yet, because we are currently in very sensitive negotiations.

HERE ARE BIG REASONS TO BE EXCITED ABOUT FRESNO:

-The snowball effect: Living Proof Fresno will have the firepower of all the previous tent crusades combined. Each tent crusade grew in power and intensity. People from Marysville came to Paradise and then people from Marysville and Paradise came to Stockton.  An army is forming that is marching down Highway 99 following the River of God. The atmosphere, miracles, and conviction keeps rising from one tent meeting to the next. That is why we know that Fresno is going to be the most powerful outreach, with the greatest number of workers yet.

-We are going to use a new and exciting tactic in Fresno: The Night of MiraclesOur standard procedure is to begin in a city with a leader’s lunch followed by a prayer rally. Not this time. The Holy Spirit made it clear we are to do something completely new.

I felt the Holy Spirit say, “Why do you do a rally just to promote the coming tent crusade? Make your opening rally just like a night in the tent.” That is exactly what we are going to do.

The Night of Miracles will be exactly like one of the nights in the tent. The Lord said that I should give the city a true taste of what they will experience in the tent. First, we were to find a church to advertise to all who need Jesus or who need a miracle, and get them to this church. That night will launch the momentum toward the next tent meetings. Think of it−just one notable miracle, or one notable conversion, could light the fuse for a great awakening in Fresno.

For one night only, we are coming to Fresno. This is our D-Day.  A single assault on the beach will begin weeks of outreach to the city of Fresno.  Why this never occurred to me before, is baffling. But like all God-ideas it is awesome in its simplicity.

Anyone who is paying attention knows California doesn’t have much time left—without a miracle this place will turn into a third world country, and many places already have.

 

I am asking you two simple things: The first is to pray, and the second is to consider coming to Fresno for this single Night of Miracles. I know it will be a night that rips down strongholds of evil, ignites the Body of Christ to great and mighty faith, and confirms the Word of God with incontrovertible miracles.

Pray! And please, try to be there for The Night of Miracles Stay tuned! After this the tent is coming to Fresno! 

 

 

I HAVE TO ASK

Whatever happened to the Baptism in the Holy Spirit?  You don’t hear about it anymore.  Churches don’t pray with people to receive it anymore.

There’s a big reason why.

Preacher, if you have stopped presenting the Baptism of the Holy Spirit to your people, it is Satan himself who has caused you to do it.  If there is no room in your services for people to receive this gift that is so urgently needed—the enemy has seized control of your agenda.  If your people don’t even know what it is—you will answer to God.

No matter how noble, persuasive, or convincing the argument, the decision to exclude the Baptism of the Holy Spirit from the life of the church is a decision conceived in hell.

Omitting this Baptism was a masterstroke of Satan.  He knew this was the most destructive deception possible.  It created lukewarm Christians.  It single handedly wiped out a huge amount of soul winning.  And, it opened the door to untold heresy.

Today we are swimming in more false teaching, false prophecy, and false Christianity than ever before.  All across the internet, ministries dabble in New Age hybrids of the Christian faith, exotic extremes, drunkenness, and even perversion.   Sadly, as it turns out, the church is the other swamp that needs draining.

Noted Christian Apologist, Ravi Zacharias, said, “I had dinner with the most popular preacher on television.  He told me that he did not see much difference between Islam and Christianity.”

How can we hang the blame for such foolishness on neglecting the Baptism of the Holy Spirit?   Let’s examine the evidence.

Jesus said, “John 16:13  “However, when He, the Spirit of Truth, has come, He will guide you into all Truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.”

Jesus calls Him the Spirit of Truth.  The Holy Spirit is the One Who imparts a hunger for Truth.  It is futile to administer truth to the unwilling soul.  False teaching will always abound when there is not the hunger for Truth that the Holy Spirit awakens.  Let’s go back to the roots of this gift:

Don’t make a move without it!

Acts 1:4: “And being assembled together with them, (Jesus) commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “Which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; 5 for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.””

The church has no witness without it.  Acts 1:8, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses unto Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

The Apostles considered it an extreme urgency for all who believed to be filled with the Holy Spirit.

-Acts 8:14 “Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them, 15 who, when they had come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit.”

-Acts 19:1 “And it happened, while Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples 2 he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” So they said to him, “We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.” 3 And he said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?” So they said, “Into John’s baptism.”  4 Then Paul said, “John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him Who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.” 5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 6 And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.”

We have two extremes in the church today:  Those who believe in nothing, and those who believe in everything.

Or, to put it another way: We have those who know nothing of what the Bible says, and those who believe anything anyone says about the Bible. Both are products of a lack of discernment and power.  It is only after you have experienced the real presence and power of God that you can recognize a counterfeit.

Look at the resulting number of disciples won by the Baptism of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost:

Acts 2:41 “Then those who gladly received (Peter’s) words were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. 42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43 Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.”

One big reason that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is not preached today is because it is the natural enemy of church-marketing.

When the power of God falls on church culture, it is instantly transformed.  Human promotion becomes obsolete.   An audience morphs into an army.  An insatiable hunger for the Word of God replaces sales pitches.

The preacher who withholds the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is guilty of treason—of withholding a priceless gift bought and paid for by the blood of Jesus. They are guilty of holding back a weapon of power that would keep the believer strong, alert, and able to win others to Christ.  It endows a congregation with a prayer language and power that pierces all adversity.  How dare we hold this back!

The Pentecostal revival is the greatest Christian revival in history.  Beginning in the humble Azusa Street Mission, it has blazed on worldwide for over 100 years, with over 650 million converts.  Only one thing explains it:  The Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

Pentecost Sunday would be the perfect time to preach the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, and to lay hands on your congregation to receive power from on high!

Join me for a night of miracles in Fresno California Sunday Night August 11!

 

 

 

THE PRICE

America faces the greatest threat she has ever faced. Now it is you who are the vessels of God who must die to self in order to get out of God’s way and confront this threat head on. Not with words alone but with undeniable signs and wonders so notable as to invoke both unbridled joy and the fear of the Lord. In view of the state of our nation, nothing less will do.

You want to see the lame walk—the blind see—and the deaf hear?  You want your days of powerless ministry to end?  You want to unlock the how and why of the way God grants power to do mighty signs and wonders?  Do you want to know why so many have asked but so few have received the gift of healing and working of miracles?

It is time to peel back misconceptions.  It is time to be brutally honest.   We have been able to create mind-bending technological breakthroughs and we can now do in an instant what previously took decades…but we will never find a shortcut to supernatural power.

I am preparing for miracle rallies in the tent in Stockton, California. I already know God’s fiery passion to work miracles in that tent. I am equally aware of the fervent hope so many have who are bringing loved ones with life-threatening diseases to be healed. It is a lot to take in. The burden of all this drove me to review the truths that have been my best friend in so many past events when I relied on nothing other than the healing power and presence of Jesus.

Read on, and learn the price of God’s miracle working power.

The Holy Spirit’s work never changes.  His process of taking raw material, such as you and I, to make a living breathing conduit for His power has never changed.  In 2,000 years, the process has not been shortened or compromised one iota.

If you seek glamour and riches, skip this message.  If you are dazzled by the people you have seen being used powerfully to perform miracles, save us both time—do not seek this power—you have no heart for it.

A young man, enthralled by the power he witnessed, ran up to Smith Wigglesworth and begged for the gift.  Smith said, “You don’t want it.  Before God is through with you, you will feel as if a thousand switch-trains have run over you.”

Before God uses you greatly, He will wound you deeply.

You still yearn to be used?  You still want power—real power, and not the fluff of so many hyper-emotional meetings?  Then proceed, with caution.

The reason for our lack of power and miracles is plain—we are just not willing to pay the price.  If you are willing, the Holy Spirit will take you through the process to power.  Here then is the price of God’s miracle working power:

It’s all about self-emptying. Listen to E. M. Bounds: “The preacher must throw himself−with all the abandon of a perfect, self-emptying faith and a self-consuming zeal−into His work for the salvation of men.  The men who take hold of and shape a generation for God must be hearty, heroic, compassionate, and fearless martyrs.”

A.W. Tozer said they would “…serve God and mankind from motives too high to be understood by the rank and file of religious retainers who today shuttle in and out of the sanctuary.  They will make no decisions out of fear, take no course out of a desire to please, accept no service for financial considerations, perform no religious act out of mere custom; nor will they allow themselves to be influenced by the love of publicity or the desire for reputation.”

Oral Roberts despaired of life itself in his hunger to understand miracles.  He was pastoring, without power, when he went to Kansas City to hear William Branham.  That encounter with the supernatural was his line in the sand.  He went into fasting and prayer.  Oral went into the prayer closet and there, he died to himself, completely.

In her desperation to understand the supernatural, Kathryn Kuhlman visited several healing meetings.  She often left disgusted and broken-hearted. Her tears and prayers reached critical mass and she made a holy vow to conduct meetings that were full of power and dignity. And she never looked back. Kathryn traced the moment of her power: she said, “I died.”  From that moment on, there was no Kathryn Kuhlman, only an utterly devoted shell.

Compassion: Oral Roberts, T.L. Osborn, Charles S. Price, and Aimee Semple McPherson all reported being overcome by compassion for the sick. Their level of caring rose to divine heights−they agonized for the lost, the sick, and the dying.

Matthew 14:14: “And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.”  Such compassion cannot be faked.  It emanates from Christ Himself.

Hatred for sickness and evil: Few understand how the anointing is a product of hatred. Hebrews 1:9 says: “You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”

Alexander Dowie saw miracles happen after a plague struck his church and killed 40 of his members in Sydney, Australia.  An inner rage transformed him until he called out to God with a pure heart, and was rewarded with so much power that it left his entire congregation free of plague.

John G. Lake saw his wife die, and it unlocked a fury against evil that swept the world with healing.

Power always has a purpose. Luke 4:17: “And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: 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.”

The most powerful part of those verses is this phrase: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because…”  Your “because” ruins you for all other plans, purposes, and goals.  You must surrender to the one thing you are assigned to do.  You must be able to list your purpose, articulate it simply and clearly, and execute it with extreme focus.

Every vessel of God has one life message.  It is an outstanding theme of their life and a distillation of all that the Holy Spirit has ever had them say.  T. L. Osborn’s life reached millions, and his life said something astonishing−and what it said is something that he never compromised or changed.

God is giving you power to do one special work.  You cannot deviate from that divine intention. It will be a true work of God.

Wait. Acts 1:4 “And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father.”  This is the key! Abraham could not wait, and Ishmael was the result.  King Saul could not wait, and it cost him his kingdom.  Esau could not wait, and it cost him his birthright.

How long will you have to wait?  AS LONG AS IT TAKES.  All the powers of hell will challenge your decision to wait.  Satan has too much to lose if true healing power begins to flow.

It will not come easily. Your flesh will scream for release from your vigil. But, wait for true miracle power.  Do not settle for the life you had before this quest.  Your patience will be rewarded beyond measure.  The Holy Spirit will come in power!

 

 

 

WILL YOU?

Will you put away your toys and take up the mighty weapons of God?

Future generations of Christians—if there will be any—will be profoundly baffled by us.  They will ask, “Why?  Why did we let trivial and foolish matters eat up so much of our time?  They will agonize over our shallowness.  They will cringe at the trivial things that were our amusements.

But above all, they will be horrified that we played all these foolish games against the backdrop of madness and perversion all around us.  In a time of raging wickedness—while we still had the chance—why didn’t we rise in the power of the Holy Spirit?  Why didn’t we deliver an effective challenge to the lies, addictions, and brainwashing of our time?

Not everyone can bear what I am about to say.  The fair-weather Christian and the make-believer will shrink before the high calling I am about to describe.  But those who heed this call, and awaken to do their duty, deserve the love and thanks of every true child of God in America.

Paul said, “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” -1 Corinthians 13:11

It is childish to linger in stupefying religious echo chambers.  It is childish to mingle with delicate, debilitated, and depleted believers.  It is childish to hide behind the towering lie that our God is unable to build mighty warriors.

I am looking you right in the eye, with a long and steady gaze.  I am mustering all the conviction in my soul.  I am begging you…PUT AWAY YOUR TOYS AND TAKE UP THE MIGHTY WEAPONS OF GOD!

Tyranny, like Hell, will not loosen its grip easily.  But you have this great comfort—the greater the conflict the more glorious the final victory.  You will be granted the honor and thrill of front line participation in the greatest thing God has ever done in the earth.

It is time to pay the price.  Things gotten cheaply are lightly esteemed.  The gold you seek is worth every drop of sweat—every mournful tear—every sacrifice.  (see: Rev. 3:18)

Satan trembles at your advance to this higher calling.  Evil quakes at your deliverance from compromise and cowardice.  Hell asks, “Will they actually take up their rightful weapons and do us great harm?”   Let your soul roar back an eternal, “YES!”

What can we do about the demons that are strangling America?  Can we dismantle their ramparts?  They have brought bitter division, mass addiction, and total deception.  Can we stop them?  Not only can we, it is our sworn duty to tear them down!

The Bible says “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God…” 2 Corinthians 10:4,5

If we can’t tear down strongholds, then God is guilty of child abuse of the highest order, for commanding us to do something that cannot be done.  If our weapons are not mighty, He is guilty of letting Paul awaken a deep hope that can never be fulfilled.  The whole point of 2 Corinthians 10: 4 and 5 was to provoke the church to destroy the strongholds of Satan by taking up the mighty weapons of God.

The Bible says, “cast down every high thing.”  The traitorous preaching and teaching of today says there is very little we can do.  So many preachers today remind us, “it’s all in God’s hands.” That may seem a comforting thought, but it is wrong. It is thinly disguised fatalism—and it creates passivity.  Everywhere you look in the Bible, the Word of God is against passivity and advocates action: “fight the good fight of faith…” “Endure hardness as a good soldier…” “Resist the devil…” “Take the sword of the Spirit…”

God has chosen to act in answer to prayer.  He waits until His people rise to take their rightful place in the arena of battle.  Young David saw the stalemate.  No one challenged Goliath.  David couldn’t stand it.  He offered himself to God.

God is looking for someone like that today—someone who can’t live with evil, who can’t stomach the perversion, and is enraged to see God dishonored.  He is looking for someone He can use to turn the tide of America.

If there is one question this blog asks, it is this:  Are you so filled with holy rage that you are willing to lay down every impediment to provide God with an opportunity to vindicate His name before this blasphemous generation?  WILLL YOU PUT AWAY YOUR TOYS?

Here is your great promise: When God sees you take up His mighty weapons of warfare—in the Name of Jesus—and attempt the impossible—God Himself will muster all the resources of heaven to bring you total victory!

Please pray for the tent crusade in Stockton CA and if you know anyone near there get them to the tent!

AFTER A BRUTAL ATTACK

After a brutal attack I have won a stunning personal victory against the devil.

Maybe you could sense it in my writings. Yeah, I was under a brutal attack. I was threatened. But anyone who knows me knows that threats just fire me up.

Here are some verses that describe us to a tee: “Now it happened in Iconium that they went together to the synagogue of the Jews, and so spoke that a great multitude both of the Jews and of the Greeks believed. But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brethren. Therefore they stayed there a long time, speaking boldly in the Lord, Who was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.” –Acts 14:1-3

I will not bore you with the details of the attack. What I will tell you is that when I decided to put up our tent in Stockton, California, it became total war. Satan told me to stay away from Stockton. He told me he would destroy me if I came to Stockton.

Then we got hit from all sides. The devil stirred up everyone he could. He tried to attack my body with a strange weariness that threatened to cloud my mind. He went after our resources. He even tried to bring a vicious division. You name it and he did it.  But why is Stockton such a big deal to the devil? Let me explain.

A victory in our tent in Stockton will have more explosive power than our last three crusades combined. Think about what I just said.  Stockton sits at the top of almost every category for murder, prostitution, and homelessness in America. Often teetering on the edge of bankruptcy, this city can’t even hire police. But I believe this city is a catalyst for something much greater…something that could hit the whole State of California.

But we know the reason we have been attacked so violently. The devil is hiding a secret in California. It is a secret that he guards with unbridled tenacity. That secret is the hunger and openness of the average person in California.

But here is the biggest reason: Stockton is our Jericho. Think about Israel. Their first few battles in the Promised Land were skirmishes. It was at Jericho that God displayed awesome power in bringing down the walls with a shout.  That victory brought fear upon the other Kings in Canaan, and brought divine momentum.

The enemies of God believe we can’t turn the tide in California.  Even so, they have admitted that the tent meetings have, so far, surprised them.  Stockton is going to be a whole different story. They know it− and the devil knows it.

Why is Stockton our Jericho? Stockton is a major gateway in our journey to the southern end of Highway 99.  We call Highway 99 the ‘Corridor of Glory’. Stockton is the first in a string of valley cities that has been brutalized by the one-two punch of drugs and the Leftist wacko policies of California.

Why is Stockton our Jericho? Because a gigantic wall came down. That wall surrounded the Weber Point Event Center.  The Weber Point Event Center is the most visible and prized location for any event in Stockton. To say that the devil didn’t want us to have it is a vast understatement. He fought us tooth and nail.  But we won!

This venue is so vital that just telling leaders about it has energized them for this crusade. But like all things worth getting, it is very expensive. However, you and I both know it is time for radical and bold acts of faith.

After Paradise I had no energy for this next great open door. That is when we stood our ground on the authority of the Cross, the Blood, and the Name of Jesus.  Now, demons have retreated. Now, resources are being restored. Now, we are ready.

If at any time Mario Murillo Ministries has been a blessing to you, please hear my cry. We need you to rally to our cause.

HELP US GET THE WORD OUT! We have spent a vast amount just to get to this point. We have added vital equipment and supplies. Everything is in place, except the one thing we need—WE NEED TO GET THE WORD OUT. I am not talking about Christians. I am talking about getting lost souls.

What could be more heartbreaking? Imagine winning all these victories—breaking through all these barriers, only to falter at the finish line? If we want the homeless, the addicts, and gang members in the tent—and not only them, but students, business leaders, politicians, and the power brokers of Stockton—we must go and get them.

I am not saying we don’t have help—many strong churches are working alongside us. Plus, we have an even greater advantage: Stockton is the headquarters of Frank Saldana and Inner City Outreach. They have favor in the homeless camps and on the streets. They are a major force in this outreach.

WE NEED A PRAYER SURGE! I need intercessors all over America to fervently cry out to God for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Stockton, California.  God has already warned me to be ready to see miracles—notable healings in the tent. There is a massive harvest in Stockton! Pray the Lord of the Harvest to send forth workers into this harvest. Pray with an understanding of the Jericho-factor. This could be the fuse to light the explosion of statewide miracles!

Think about it. In just a few weeks, history could be made in California!  Could this be the turning point we have so deeply yearned for and believed would come? Join with us! Now watch this one minute video:
