The CaliforniaVirus

A caravan of trucks is making its way toward Chico, California. They are carrying everything needed for a full blown Tent crusade. Vessels of God from many parts of America and other nations are on a pilgrimage to Chico. This holy core of workers say Jesus told them to join Him on the frontlines of a hurting city. They took the flights others told them not to take. They told their bosses that winning the lost and healing the sick takes priority.

A friend is someone who walks in, when everyone else walks out. This holy core of workers is the best friend this or any city could ever have. We would never tell the police to skip their duty because of a virus. We would never tell a nurse or doctor to hide at home. We would never tell any first responder to take the day off because they might encounter risk. How can we say any less to a soldier of the Cross? How can we overrule them? If they say they have a mandate from God, who are you, or who am I, to tell them differently? All I ever say is, “Make sure it’s God, then act on it!”

That doesn’t mean we do not take the Coronavirus seriously, we do! We will not act recklessly, or break any law.  We are in compliance with state guidelines, and we will obey any civil authority when it comes to this crusade. However, we see another virus that is just as deadly.

The virus we are fighting in Chico and all along the Highway 99 corridor, is the CaliforniaVirus. It is deadly. Morally bankrupt intellectualism is why millions writhe in meaningless lives in this State. Meanwhile, their leaders in Sacramento heap more misery on them and then force them to pay for it. The grand experiment of California values has created America’s greatest human tragedy.

In Silicon Valley, workers who gave their lives for a company are being replaced by cheaper labor, and to add insult to injury, they are forced to train the people who are stealing their jobs. In Hollywood, vacuous and ignorant celebrities preach to us about the sacrifices we must make, while they live in obscene luxury.

Giddiness is a symptom of the CaliforniaVirus. It’s how a parent can grin and feel enlightened as a transgender man in a sexy sequined dress reads a story to their 5 year old. It’s how teachers can scold a first grader for calling a friend Johnny who has changed their name to Sally. This Virus redefines child abuse.

This infection of the mind and soul has caused them to come up with ideas like free needles for addicts, and AWOL methods of handling the homeless. (https://sites.google.com/a/coyotes.usd.edu/awolatusd/social-issues/homelessness)

It’s how San Francisco, the most beautiful city in America, has been transformed into a slum, covered in human and medical waste. The fever of CaliforniaVirus is how educators have ignored their children’s need to learn how to read and write, and instead, have indoctrinated them with leftist ideology and books about sexual positions. It is why more and more of our children are turning to suicide.

The Virus says that if a fetus makes it to full-term and is born alive, the mother can still have it killed. The Virus says we should leave our border open so the other virus can get in.”

Its final symptoms are denial and smugness. So what if crime is off the charts? So what if addiction is pandemic? So what if our kids won’t know how to make a living? Who cares if innocent citizens are murdered by those who have illegally invaded our nation? The Virus says, ‘Lift the restrictions on criminals, create a revolving door in our prisons and at the same time, remove the right of law-abiding citizens to protect themselves.’

The CaliforniaVirus will destroy more lives than any other virus. It drains joy, decency, and sanity from its victims. Let’s admit what this virus is…it is pure despair-inducing evil.

So: Why are we here in Chico?

Because the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the cure for the CaliforniaVirus!

It restores dignity. It breaks the chains of addiction. It infuses a lost heart with unstoppable hope. It cleanses the past, empowers the present, and guarantees the future!

Jesus will be in the Tent curing the CaliforniaVirus. Our message is clear, and yes, we will be hated for its clarity.

Nothing can say it better than Acts 2:40, “(Peter) went on in this vein for a long time, urging them over and over, “Get out while you can; get out of this sick and stupid culture!” (The Message)

We are saying to the masses that are lying crushed beneath the weight of California’s moral turpitude—

COME TO JESUS AND BE SAVED AND HEALED!

In our Tent: the story of the miracle God will bring to California

Over one million Californians are about to get this message: In our Tent, the chains of sickness, addiction, and despair are broken. In our Tent, the rules of the street die. In our Tent, you will find the life you were born to live.

Five cities: Chico, Roseville, Modesto, Fresno, and Bakersfield will be the focus of God’s love and power in 2020. An army of prayer warriors is about to launch targeted intercession to break the power of Satan. Soldiers are in training to put boots on the ground. These prayer-covered workers will soon touch California’s most forsaken: from homeless camps, to crack houses—everyone, from the down-and-out to the up-and-in will receive our witness.  Our workers will not bring just food and clothing, but will bring the anointing, to heal and to set captives free.

Now, I must tell you about the battlefield.  What the Elitist Left Regime has done to the people of California will stand as a disgrace for the ages to come. California is the poster-child for why America must defeat Leftist ideology.

My hometown is a prime example. God made San Francisco beautiful, but the Left has made her ugly.

I have fond memories of San Francisco—the one I knew as a child.  Today, you can’t walk on the streets anywhere without the risk of stepping on human waste, a dirty needle, or being physically attacked.

As a child I would go to Market Street to watch the Easter Parade, and on New Year’s Eve, families enjoyed the fireworks. Today, Market Street is a living nightmare.

For a mile in front of what once were elegant stores, now lawn chairs sit, filled with people who look half dead. The smoke from legalized marijuana is mixed with city-provided needles for drug addicts who line the streets. Alcohol is rampant and is mingled with physical degradation, creating a cloud with the stench of death.  And you know what? The current District Attorney believes that San Francisco is still not liberal enough.

The streets of Los Angeles are an apocalypse of around 45,000 gang members. There are nearly 60,000 homeless people. For the first time in history they found leprosy on the streets of Los Angeles. They have spent a billion dollars on this crisis, but to no avail. It is believed that over 1,000 homeless people have died on the streets of Los Angeles.

And still, local Democrats want more illegals to come. They want to provide free services to them, but are utterly failing to take care of their own citizens.  L.A. and S.F. are ‘sanctuary cities’?  Sanctuaries from what?

This dystopian landscape of California is the legacy of the Democrat Party. Decades of abuse and depraved thinking have unleashed this misery. The party has incorporated atheism into their platform, and the result is a disaster for the cities they control.

While I was in the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, N.C. the exhibit of Billy preaching in the Eastern Bloc countries brought me to tears. Communism fell in these nations, not long after Billy preached there. Not only that, but it fell in the exact same order of Billy’s visits. I thought what a miracle

Then I thought why not such a miracle for California? Los Angeles has a great store of the buried treasure of past revivals. From here emerged the greatest outpouring since the Book of Acts: Azusa Street. The greatest evangelists of the 20th Century have held meetings here: from Aimee McPherson to Billy Graham. From here, the greatest youth revival in American history was born—the Jesus People Movement.

Tectonic plates push against each other with unimaginable force, causing earthquakes in California. In the same way, spiritual tectonic plates of good and evil are colliding, with even greater force. Something has got to give. The miracle lies in the great Central Valley.

Highway 99 is our assignment, for a reason. Millions who live along this corridor have been uniquely punished by the government. The quality of life has dropped drastically. But the big difference is that Central Valley families haven’t bought into the agenda of the radical Left Coast. Something is stirring here!

I hear the rumble in this valley of millions who are sick to death of the whole mess. They don’t want what their kids are being taught in these schools. They don’t want drag queens reading to their children. They don’t want any part of the medicated, mentally dulled elites who compose the government of California. They don’t want this disaster to continue. They yearn for hope.

It is like the earthquake of Holy Spirit power that struck Israel when John the Baptist and Jesus Christ arrived. Their message of the kingdom of God revolutionized Israel. When the leaders sought an answer for the sudden stampede toward righteousness, Jesus explained, “From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force” (Matthew 11:12).

You are the heart of this mass invasion along Highway 99 in California. Your prayers, support and love have taken on muscle. Demons are going to feel the impact of your faith. The diseases that are oppressing many are going to be healed because of your partnership. Every soul saved under this Tent is part of your harvest.

I have never been more proud of my fellow warriors in the Central Valley of California. I thank God for Frank Saldana and the core of our elite warriors at Inner City Action. I thank God for Pastor Jim and Kristine Carpenter from The Bridge in Marysville. I give God the glory for Pastor A. J. and Claudia Nunez from Covenant Worship Center in Fresno. I am honored to have the help of Bishop Steve and Kelly Perea from Christian Worship Center in Manteca.  There are so many more I could name, but please forgive me if I failed to mention anyone.

Look at the graphic that shows every tent crusade for Living Proof California. Let it fill you with expectation and a spirit of prayer! Can you feel the urgency of this tour?  Does your spirit witness to the rightness of what we are about to do?

I want you to notice the Night of Miracles that we have planned. These are nights we go into the cities where the Tent will soon come. On these nights people get a taste of the fire and supernatural power that will be in the Tent a few weeks later.

How can I help but put out a call for soldiers to rally to this divine cause? Let God speak to your heart! There is a place here for you. There is a miracle waiting here for you. You will see God use you in a way you have never imagined. No matter what the level of power of your gift, let me tell you, it will go to a new level.  Do you fear witnessing? I assure you that an inner fire will make you as bold as a lion. Not only that, you will return rejoicing over the lives God has used you to save. Come along beside me and become the Christian warrior you never imagined you could be.

I can’t overstate the urgency of prayer. Please, begin praying for us right now. Ancient devils control these communities and they will not easily let go. It will take fasting and prayer. It will take gut wrenching intercession. No one knows better than Satan what a Central Valley Awakening will do to the rest of America. But God is infinitely greater than Satan.

God will give us the breakthrough. He will give us the victory!

Join us for the very first event in Chico. Here’s a  one minute video invitation from Mario
