The Surprise in San Francisco

A stunning rebuke to watered down Christianity came from an unlikely place: San Francisco.

It was my honor to partner with Chris Burns and the amazing army that formed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love in Golden Gate Park.  THE SOUND was an outreach of many powerful worship artists, dynamic speakers, and a committed core linked hearts to bless the city.  But one thing that happened has wide implications to all believers. A scientific experiment will help you appreciate what I mean.

Biologists put a thick pane of glass in the middle of a large rectangular aquarium.  After filling it with water, they stocked it with small fish on one side of the glass barrier and their natural predator on the other.

Over and over, the larger fish slammed into the invisible barrier trying to feed on the smaller fish.  This went on for days until they gave up.  Then, the scientists removed the glass divider and saw something remarkable: The predators behaved as if the barrier was still there—they didn’t try to eat the small fish. They didn’t even try to go to the other side of the tank.

When we think of San Francisco—and rightly so—we think of smug, anti-God intellectual, lovers of pleasure.  We also think of youth—hard wired, by activist educators, to reject Christ. The church is conditioned not to fish here. There’s your glass pane.

In outreach after outreach, Mario Murillo Ministries has never acknowledged a glass barrier in San Francisco.  It was true again on July 6th and 7th when we joined forces with Chris Burns to win souls in the city.

Holy Ghost boldness overtook me.  I preached an unvarnished soul-winning message.  I refused to employ verbal gymnastics to appeal to a sophisticated culture.

Why—if this place is so hard—did so many respond, so immediately, to a direct gospel appeal?  Nothing was sugar-coated.  It was no credit to oratory.  It was a simple case of hungry and hurting souls reaching out to Jesus—because He was offered to them.

The pictures tell you how many came forward.  Even more astounding was the report Chris gave me about the invasion the next day: “We saw hundreds saved as we took over Golden Gate Park.”

Time and time again, I’ve warned the American church…there is a great harvest in our nation, even in San Francisco.  And…if there is a harvest in San Francisco, how much more in the rest of America?

Fish treading water refusing to eat is ridiculous; preachers refusing to harvest is beyond ridiculous—it is an embarrassment to our cause.  Watered-down, apologetic, murky preaching is a grandiose, inexcusable, waste of time.

Here is the giant question: why are so many Americans so hungry for Christ now?  The answer is simple: our culture made them miserable—a culture created by an elite core of power brokers.  It might be Hollywood; it might be our—hell-bent on telling Americans what to think—media.  They dictate what we should believe, what is good for us, what is right behavior and finally, what would make us happy. None of it works.

Social prophets bludgeon us with progressive platitudes and put a muzzle on any opposing voice.  Group think is the only way Americans can believe patently stupid contradictions: free speech is a threat to freedom—open marriage deepens commitment—suicide is victory—violence is love.

They can control almost everything, but one thing they cannot control: the damage on the soul—the vacuum that hi-tech selfishness creates—the misery of trying to endure on medicated self-pity.

The American church is bitterly failing a generation because we are still hoodwinked by an old model.  We still see the reluctant seeker—the spiritual looky-look.  We don’t see the desperate hearts that grope in darkest America.

We are failing a generation because we are not stronger than our excuses.  The empty calories served up on Sunday morning are a tribute to denial.  They deny the power of the Gospel, and they deny the hunger of the people.  Half-cures are now irrelevant.

The compromised church isn’t the only problem.  Some churches are just strange. There are pastors who pull their hair out trying to understand why new visitors don’t come to church.  They never consider that their shenanigans are weird to outsiders and their members are too embarrassed to invite friends.

When their bizarre and self-serving antics make visitors walk out, they smugly assume they are under conviction.  No…they just think we’re crazy.

The crushing heartbreak is that both these extremes—with their useless methods—continue to be celebrated.  Meanwhile, a nation dies, and lost souls go into eternity.

Every day, Satan sells a new drug that kills kids faster.  Every hour, a new perversion twists the minds of our children.

 

Mario Murillo Ministries walks the tightrope of the radical middle.  The tepid church rejects us because we preach fire and operate under Holy Spirit unction.  The hyper-emotional church rejects us because we use rigid discipline to keep it real for lost souls.

Right now, I should be rejoicing over the harvest in San Francisco, instead, it ignites fire in my bones.  Millions want the power the Gospel offers.  Leftists lie about it, and Christians misrepresent it.  Nevertheless, I am filled with hope.

There is a story of 4 brave lepers that mirrors the experiment about the fish:  God had scared the enemy away but the city under siege didn’t realize it.  2 Kings 7: 7 “Therefore they arose and fled at twilight, and left the camp intact—their tents, their horses, and their donkeys—and they fled for their lives.  And when these lepers came to the outskirts of the camp, they went into one tent and ate and drank, and carried from it silver and gold and clothing, and went and hid them; then they came back and entered another tent, and carried some from there also, and went and hid it. 9 Then they said to one another, ‘We are not doing right. This day is a day of good news, and we remain silent.’”

All the resources to save a starving city sat unused.  The army they feared was gone.  They simply didn’t bother to check the enemy’s camp.  The same is true now.  God keeps everything ready that we need to reach America.  If only we would see that and act on this great promise.

Mario Murillo Ministries is not going to sit and wait for squeamish theologians to figure out how hungry Americans are for Jesus; and how much provision stands ready for those who will rightly divide the Word of God.  The harvest in San Francisco is only the beginning of surprises that God has in store.  Come with us on this great adventure.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

COMPANIES AT WAR WITH THE CHURCH

TYRANNY BLOG copy

March 30th, 2016   By Mario Murillo

 

General Zod ordered them to activate the world engine.  Suddenly, downbursts of inconceivable power began squashing and pulverizing an entire city and its innocent citizens.   A wise scientist discerned what was happening—aliens are terraforming the earth.  Terraforming is a science fiction device that dates back to at least 1941.  Machines transform atmospheres so they can be colonized—essentially, absorbing an existing world in favor of a new matrix.

By now, many recognize this as a scene from the movie Man of Steel.  Last night wasn’t my first time to see the film.  Seeing it on television is not the same as a theater on a gigantic screen with deafening sound and a responsive audience.   It should have been an amusingly tepid affair—but for some reason—the terraforming scene disturbed me.  Now I know why.  It is because it is happening right now.

terraforming

Walt Disney Studios, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Coca Cola, IBM, the NBA (to name a few) are and terraforming North Carolina and Georgia.  They are absorbing Christianity.  These corporations are pounding, pulverizing and eradicating an existing culture in favor of a new culture.

Their world engine says, “You will allow boys into the girl’s showers and bathrooms—you will not call homosexuality a sin from the pulpit—you are not allowed to operate a Christian adoption agency unless you place children in gay and lesbian homes—you will do this or we will blast your economy back to the stone age.”

If you believe their motivation is to advance equality and human rights…then you couldn’t sell bogus bonds to your mother.  It has nothing to do with rights.  It has nothing to do with equality.  It has everything to do with the world engine.

cared

If they cared about women’s rights and gay rights these corporations would stop doing business with Moslem countries where women are mutilated and gays are executed.  They would stop doing business with China because of gross human rights violations.   The world engine cannot say Islamic terror no matter how much blood flows.  It cannot call the mass extermination of Christians in the Middle East genocide.  Here is a headline that came out today:

Saudi government ‘wants to EXECUTE gay people who show their sexuality in public & online’

SAUDI law makers could impose the death penalty on gay people who show their sexuality in public and on social media, according to reports.  The government in the Sunni Kingdom is reportedly demanding tougher punishments on those found guilty and claimed social media has caused a boom in homosexuality.   According to Okaz newspaper, the last six months has seen 35 cases of homosexuality and 50 cases of cross-dressers as well as cases of “sexual perversion” in Saudi Arabia.

NONE OF THESE COMPANIES ARE TRYING TO PUNISH SAUDI ARABIA THE WAY THEY ARE PUNISHING GEORGIA AND NORTH CAROLINA

It is all about the world engine…a complicated device indeed.  This engine operates on a double standard.  Because of the World Engine, Mayor Ed Lee of San Francisco bans flights to North Carolina but does not ban murderers in San Francisco.   Kate Steinle was walking on a busy pier in San Francisco with her father when there was a single popping sound in the air. She fell to the ground, struck by a bullet, the victim of what police say appears to be a random killing. The man who fired the deadly shot—45-year-old Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez—an illegal alien, a repeat felon who has been deported five times to Mexico—but protected by S.F.’s sanctuary policy.

silence

The world engine is why you hear all about the horrors of Christianity and nothing about Islam.  Mosques face no economic threat from these corporations.   If this were about equality they would not be trampling freedom of speech and freedom of religion.  Even gay activist Milo Yiannopoulos is disgusted with the open persecution of Christians in the name of gay rights.

Since Moslems and illegal aliens vote democratic they are protected.  The world engine sees Christianity as the sole obstruction to its brave new world.  The world engine has decided that the one last unprotected and unrepresented group should be the Christians.  They are fair game for insults, illegal arrests search and seizure and financial tyranny.

What is the end game of the world engine?  To complete its terraforming, it must create a herd of low information—amoral—drug addicted—government dependent people.  To do so, the engine forms strange alliances.   Feminists and Moslems—Seeker pastors and atheists—greedy corporations and socialists—all natural enemies gleefully work together.  They are united by hate not by love.

What the companies are doing to Georgia and North Carolina is not human kindness but a cold cynical marketing scheme.  Right now hurting Christians sells.   If enough people felt strongly about the oppression of devil worshipers, we would have Satan day at Disneyland.  Why do politicians cave to anti-God policies?  Because opposing churches gets you reelected.   Why do seeker pastors refuse to stand with their brothers for righteousness?  Because by looking anti-biblical, anti-judgmental gets you a crowd.

The behavior of these corporations is not just illegal it is felony extortion and intimidation…they have called the church out.  They have declared war on us.  They are testing the early version of the mark of the beast.   Here is the most important thing to know: When you are in a war–you must know you are in a war–prepare like you are in a war and fight like you are in a war.

engine

This world engine can be a very easy excuse for a fearful church.  But we must not violate scripture and fashion a doctrine in order to justify our fear.  Certainly things are going to “wax worse and worse” but Jesus forever sealed the issue in Matthew 24:14 when He declared a worldwide impact of His Gospel before the world would be allowed to end.

In a segment of the church today it is fashionable to want revival.  It is “in” to talk revival talk.  Satan has not wished to bury revival talk but, rather, he wants to congratulate us for only saying we want it. He is amused by our pompous symbolic effort to bring revival.  The devil delights in the fact of our pride.  We are so pleased with our awareness of the needs for revival that it seems enough to just want it.

There is a young crop of Christians that is entirely different from swooning saints.  I told you in a recent letter that the youth will bring a Lion Revival!  These young Christians ask disturbing questions about why we always seem to want something that we never deliberately try to get.  If the church is not careful, we may be passed over in favor of this new breed of believers who don’t have our religious childhood diseases.

announce

II Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”   That is a promise that we have all heard and believed, but probably never realized its true significance.  A promise and instructions are embedded in that verse that will remove Satan’s vile talons from the throat of our nation.

The eyes of the Lord see everything but they focus on what is going on with His people.  Let us come before Him now, aware of our total helplessness.  Let us announce that we are His people and that we do not fear our time, but we fear the Lord, and we have come to stand before His presence on behalf of a new demonstration of His glory on earth.  Then we will see the barriers removed and the long-awaited revival explode!

Kentucky clerk who denied gay marriage licenses released from jail

Kentucky clerk who denied gay marriage licenses released from jail

 Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk locked up for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, was released from jail on Tuesday — as her case also drew the personal attention of two presidential candidates.

Davis was greeted by a crowd of singing and cheering supporters as she exited the jail. They sang “Amazing Grace” and “God Bless America,” as her attorney vowed Davis would be back to work “this week.”

The order for her release came from U.S. District Judge David Bunning, the same judge who initially jailed the Rowan County clerk last Thursday on a contempt of court charge. But Bunning lifted that order Tuesday. He said the court is “satisfied” that since last week, the clerk’s office has been issuing marriage licenses “to all legally eligible couples” — those licenses have been handled by Davis’ deputy clerks.

At the same time, Bunning directed Davis not to “interfere in any way” with the marriage licenses now being issued by her office.

“If Defendant Davis should interfere in any way with their issuance, that will be considered a violation of this Order and appropriate sanctions will be considered,” he said in the order. Bunning is the son of former Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning.

More on this…

  • Why Mike Huckabee is standing with Kentucky clerk Kim Davis

Her legal counsel did not say whether Davis had any intention to defy the courts.

Rather, attorney Mat Staver said: “She loves God, she loves people, she loves her work — and she will not betray any of those three.”

He said Davis will not violate her “conscience,” and said the court order “did not resolve the underlying issue.” He reiterated Davis’ request for an “accommodation” to remove her name from gay marriage certificates. “Kim still is asking for that today,” he said.

The decision from Bunning came down just before Davis received jailhouse visits from Republican presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz. They were ushered into the building shortly after the judge’s order was issued, as was Davis’ husband, Joe Davis.

“She was willing to go to jail for what she believed,” Huckabee said, as he accompanied Davis and her attorney out of the jail. He also tweeted:

Davis’ stand has become a political lightning rod in the 2016 race, rallying social conservatives while drawing the scorn of Democrats; some Republican presidential candidates also have suggested she went too far in refusing marriage licenses.

But 2016 candidates like Cruz and Huckabee, a former Baptist minister, have used her case to highlight the issue of religious freedom and reach out to evangelical Christians.

Obama’s silence on Kathryn Steinle killing is deafening

Obama’s silence on Kathryn Steinle killing is deafening

By Marc A. Thiessen July 13 at 9:33 AM

After Trayvon Martin was killed, President Obama spoke emotionally about his death, declaring “this could have been my son.”

-After Michael Brown was killed, Obama promised to ensure that “justice is done” and declared: “We lost a young man, Michael Brown, in heartbreaking and tragic circumstances. He was 18 years old. His family will never hold Michael in their arms again.” He even sent administration officials to attend Brown’s funeral.

-After Freddie Gray was killed, Obama walked out to the Rose Garden and declared: “We have some soul-searching to do. This has been going on for a long time. This is not new, and we shouldn’t pretend that it’s new.”

-But after Kathryn Steinle was killed July 1, allegedly by an illegal immigrant with seven felony convictions, Obama said . . . nothing.  No promises of “justice.” No calls for “soul-searching.”

imagesSanctuary laws are in the national spotlight after an illegal immigrant with prior deportations and a criminal history pleaded not guilty to murdering a woman at a San Francisco pier.  His silence has been deafening.

Why has Obama been so reticent to speak out? Perhaps it is because any soul-searching in this case would require him to confront the fact that his administration has been releasing tens of thousands of dangerous illegal immigrants with criminal convictions into our communities — including many who have gone on to commit murder.

It got little notice, but on May 28, Sarah Saldana, director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, admitted in a letter to Sens. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) that between fiscal years 2010 and 2014, the Obama administration had released “121 unique criminal aliens who had an active [deportation] case at the time of release and were subsequently charged with homicide-related offenses.”

Think about that: 121 times over the past four years, the administration has released an illegal immigrant with prior criminal convictions who went on to be charged with murder. That is one every 12 days.

In one case, an illegal immigrant and felon named Apolinar Altamirano allegedly gunned down a 21-year-old Arizona convenience store clerk, Grant Ronnebeck, over a pack of cigarettes. Altamirano had been convicted of felony burglary and was in the middle of deportation proceedings. But ICE released him after he posted a $10,000 bond — which allowed him to allegedly go kill an innocent young man. Asked by Sens. Flake and Grassley whether she had notified state and local authorities when Altamirano was released, Saldana replied, “ICE does not routinely notify local authorities when a detainee is released on bond from ICE custody.”ILLEGAL-ALIEN-CHILDREN-GANGBANGERS

ICE also does not routinely notify local authorities when it releases illegal immigrants who are sex offenders. Last month, a Boston Globe investigation found that between 2008 and 2012, ICE released 424 sex offenders into communities across the country — including “convicted rapists, child molesters and kidnappers” — and that “immigration officials have released them without making sure they register with local authorities as sex offenders.” The paper further found that “At least 34 of the 424 released sex offenders . . . were back in jail as of last month, state records show, some for heinous crimes committed after ICE released them.”

In 2013, the Obama administration released 36,007 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions — 1,000 of whom were subsequently convicted of other crimes after their release. Last year they released 30,558 such immigrants. According to the House Judiciary Committee, only 8 percent of those were due to the Supreme Court’s decision in Zadvydas v. Davis, which requires that illegal immigrants be released after 180 days if their home countries won’t take them back. The other 92 percent were released because of Obama’s policies.

Opposing Gay Marriage is not Bigotry

 OPPOSING

Traditional teachings of marriage rooted not in animus, but in pursuit of happiness

BY TIMOTHY P. CARNEY | APRIL 23, 2015 | 5:29 PM

 Traditional marriage in the U.S. makes its last stand this week at oral arguments before the Supreme Court. If same-sex marriage wins out, the next question is what to do with the vanquished? Should we tolerate opposition to gay marriage?

What should be done, legally and socially, with photographers who don’t want to take part in a gay wedding, or churches that don’t want to consecrate a same-sex union? How should we all treat the old-fashioned view that marriage is between a man and a woman?

Many institutions, commentators and politicians already have their answer: Opposition to gay marriage deserves no more respect than racism. The government ought to force a photographer, a musician or a caterer to participate in a gay wedding, they argue, just as we forced racist diner owners to allow black customers to sit at their lunch counters.

But the premise here — that opposition to gay marriage is necessarily grounded in bigotry — is wrong.

But refusing to participate in a marriage ceremony is a different sort of thing. It’s not a statement about the people involved. It’s a decision about the ceremony itself — that one doesn’t want to endorse a definition of marriage that one doesn’t share.

And there are many valid reasons to believe in marriage as being between a man and a woman. There are many arguments to make here, but here’s one, from my own Catholic perspective:

There isn’t really a Catholic teaching on gay marriage — there is a rich Catholic teaching on marriage, which is a sacrament. Marriage is inextricably tied with sex and family formation. To deliberately separate these three things is a moral error, the Church teaches.

Sexual morality, as taught by traditional religions, isn’t terribly popular in the U.S. these days, but it’s a mistake to dismiss these views as archaic prescriptions followed blindly by the faithful. Such teachings are often far more complex than simple “shalls” and “shall nots” accepted as divine revelation.

Consider Aristotle’s view of virtue and happiness (eudaimonia, in Greek). Happiness — a deep, lasting happiness — is a life lived according to virtue, Aristotle writes. Morality can be seen as the roadmap to human happiness.

Over thousands of years, Christianity, building on the traditions of the Jews and ancient civilizations such as the Greeks, has tried to understand human nature ± — through experience, reason, and revelation. From that picture of the human soul, the Church has tried to craft a roadmap.

removing family

We need a roadmap because life is full of obstacles and pitfalls that we typically can’t see beforehand on our own, but which are well-known in prior human experience. Walking directly towards what we think we want can often be perilous to our happiness. Sacrifice, patience, and struggle are often required.

It’s not an old-fashioned or purely religious notion that sacrifice is necessary for happiness. Secular morality embraces that notion as well: You shouldn’t always eat whatever you want; you need to exercise; don’t get too drunk.

The road to happiness also involves giving up sex at times, even when following secular moral road maps. Perfectly irreligious, live-and-let-live moral systems often guard against (for example) prostitution, open marriages, sex in the early teen years, and extreme promiscuity. These activities may appeal to some people in the short run, but one need not believe any particular religion to understand how they can cause anguish and pain in the long run.

The roadmaps provided by conservative religious moral systems prescribe a narrower path and often call for more sacrifice. In many cases, for many people, the prescribed path is celibacy. If you want to be a Catholic priest, nun, or monk, you must also agree to a life of celibacy.

If you’re unmarried, most Christian teaching tells you to be celibate. Many men and women are unmarried, despite their best efforts, and asking them to forego sex is asking a lot. But the Church does so out of an understanding of human nature, and the true path to happiness.

Married Catholic couples are often called to abstain from sex if they want to space out the births of their children. And the limitations on divorce often mean a sexless life for married people whose marriages fell apart, or whose spouses suffered a debilitating injury, or were imprisoned.

Everyone is called to some level of sacrifice — some more, some less. Nobody says it’s fair. But it’s prudent, the Church teaches.

For people who are exclusively attracted to people of the same sex, the Catholic Church also prescribes celibacy.

I got this roadmap image from a conversation over coffee with Eve Tushnet, the author of Gay and Catholic. Her heartfelt book makes it clear that carrying the cross of gay celibacy is very different from, and often harder than, the chastity to which other Catholics are called. But she has concluded this is her cross, and her path.

These rules, again, aren’t terribly popular these days. I expect this column to persuade approximately zero people that they should give up premarital sex, birth control, or their same-sex relationship.

But however unappealing or unconvincing you find this approach to sexuality and marriage, how can you say this view is grounded in bigotry?

You don’t need to agree for an instant with Catholic, or Protestant, or Muslim, or Jewish teachings on sex, family, or marriage. But if you can grant that some of these teachings are grounded, not in animus, but in an understanding of love, then at least you can agree to this: We shouldn’t use the force of law to banish these views from our society.

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.

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.
