We made a dangerous promise to America

By Mario Murillo

“So Daniel went in and asked the king to give him time, that he might tell the king the interpretation.  Then Daniel went to his house, and made the decision known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions, that they might seek mercies from the God of heaven concerning this secret, so that Daniel and his companions might not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. – Daniel 2: 16-18

How bad was the King’s nightmare?  The King said he would kill every wise man unless they could tell the dream and give its interpretation.  Daniel did not know what the King dreamt but made him a promise anyway- Give me time, I will ask God and I will give you the meaning of your nightmare.

This little detail is often left out in the telling of the story of Daniel.  Think of it!  Death is certain if he fails to get a miracle.  He hung his entire life on a prayer.

America is having a nightmare.   Riots spread and international threats escalate.  The nation is gripped with divisive hate, crippling fear and deep uncertainty.

And just as Nebuchadnezzar despised the wise men for not knowing how to help him, America is taking out her frustrations on Christianity.  Americans are in no mood for religion.  They have made their feelings known loud and clear.  They have strayed away from church in droves.   Even hip churches are fading because the inner pain Americans feel is too great for groovy sermons.Donation page for year end letter copy

By announcing LIVING PROOF, Mario Murillo Ministries has made a dangerous promise to America.  Even before the miracles arrive, before we understand how to speak to the agony of our nation we went as far out on the limb as you can go.  We are in the same place Daniel was that night that he prayed.

We have said to America “give us time and we will tell you of your nightmare and give you the meaning you are so desperate to find.”   Our televisions commercials say it, our flyers say it.  We are totally at the out in the open.

Are we fools?  We are not fools and we have never been wiser.  Think about it.  Daniel was already on the death list.  His action was astute and courageous.   He recognized that the supernatural was no longer optional.   The Christians who are still playing church are the real fools.

We have done the only thing a ministry can do in this desperate hour.   We have prayed, sought the Living God and fasted.  We have allowed the searchlight of God to examine our deepest motives.  We have purchased the gold that is tried in the fire.

To evict devils and declare miracles I had to die to self.  I do not miss the old Mario.  I have never been so glad to see him go.

LIVING PROOF is not a meaningless title it is our reality.  The victims of this present darkness must walk into a meeting that is saturated by the presence of God.  They must be told bold and honest things about their soul and Jesus.  Then the Holy Spirit will provide the proof by healing incurable disease and instantly breaking demonic power.

LIVING PROOF is coming to your area!  When it does you will see with your own eyes the very thing that Peter asked God for when he prayed this prayer “Lord behold their threats and grant to your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your Word while You stretch out your hand to heal and let signs and wonders be done in the name of your Holy Son Jesus.” –Acts 4:29

THE RENOVATION OF YOUR LIFE

THE RENOVATION OF YOUR LIFE

By Mario Murillo

We have learned that the vast majority of those who read this blog regularly are concerned about three things: America, your loved ones and your walk with God.  We also know that you are not afraid to speak out against the tyranny of our government.

All of that tells us something else: You are seeking more of God.   Because of this, you are likely to attend a conference, seminar, convention, or retreat this year. 

Let me suggest that you pray seriously about the Living Proof World Convention.   I could promise you a no frills truth centered event that will confront all of the matters that I mentioned but the big reason you should come is something different: An outpouring of the power of God that will root out the things that are holding us back and will imbue us transforming power and fire.

You will meet the growing number of believers who are finished with dead religion and compromise.  Join hearts with those who love America and believe that there is a supernatural solution.  If you are facing the battle of your life maybe this convention is the answer from the Lord that you have prayed for.

Our conviction: The American Church will not be turned around by supermen but by supernatural men. We do not need better equipment, new organizations, novel methods, but vessels that the Holy Ghost can use—vessels who pray with prevailing might.  God does not flow through religious machinery but through human beings, he does not anoint plans, but people—people of prayer.

BOOMTOWN

Do not sit back and watch dark clouds gather.  Sweep away the cobwebs, underbrush and weeds of despair and take action!  It is high time for you to put on the full armor of God’s power.

This prayer of Peter embodies this convention:  Acts 4: 29  Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” 31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.

Here are some urgent final statements.  Pray and ask God if you are to be a part of this groundbreaking event.  Act boldly and do not let fear stop you from coming.   God will make a way if you are truly serious about having power in these end times.  Join Mechelle and me for the renovation of your life and ministry.   The Living Proof World Convention has one simple goal:  To restore the roar of the American Church.

The Living Proof World Convention will be held at the Boomtown hotel and Casino in Reno in just a few weeks: March 30 and 31.    There is no registration fee for the convention but you must register.  We are at 75% percent full right now so please act now.   Click on the link below and you can register instantly.   You can also call us at 775 432 1665

LOOKING FORWARD copy

Many preachers cry out to God for great signs and wonders. What is the secret?

IMG_0619

America is beyond words.  Only true signs and wonders will reach them now.  Many preachers cry out to God for great signs and wonders in their church services.  What is the secret? We can all learn a vital lesson from Mark 6, a lesson that dramatically changed our meetings.

It was almost by accident that I discovered the single truth that would revolutionize our outreaches.  Most who have followed our ministry can tell you that there is a clear before and after story about MMM.

It happened when I looked at Mark 6. For some reason I looked at the very beginning and the very end of this chapter and made a startling discovery:  The beginning of the chapter records the very worst healing service Jesus ever conducted and the last few verses relate His very best healing service. I had to find out what was going on!

Here are the two contrasts:

  1. Verse 5: “Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them.”
  2. Verse 56: “Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.”

Let’s break it down.  Why were there so few miracles in his hometown? The stock answer is unbelief.  But that does not begin to explain it.  Nor does it help us see why there was an opposite extreme at the end of the chapter.

week-12-slide-3

 

The stock answer is that one group had unbelief and the other had faith.  It goes much deeper than that.

What I discovered was that his relatives 3 things wrong did wrong and the people near the end of the chapter did three things right.  Here are the verses that show what His relatives did and see if you can guess the problem.

Look at Mark 6:1-6   “Then He went out from there and came to His own country, and His disciples followed Him. 2 And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing Him were astonished, saying, “Where did this Man get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that such mighty works are performed by His hands! 3 Is this not the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us?” So they were offended at Him. 4 But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.” 5 Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them.”

Jesus healing

Before we say anything else notice that it does not say Jesus “would not do many miracles.”  It says that “He could not do many miracles.”  The fact is He wanted to heal but met a resistance that stopped miracles.  This is a key to the whole matter.

What I discovered was that his relatives did 2 things wrong did wrong and the people near the end of the chapter did 2 things right.  Here is what His relatives did wrong

  1. They knew Him so well that they did not know Him at all. They did not think that it was special that Jesus was among them because they did not think He was anything special. They made no special arrangements. There was no sense of anticipation that anything wonderful had come to their town.

Note: This was in fact the only place where Jesus ever went that they did not have the sick laid in the marketplace in anticipation of His coming.

  1. They saw no connection between Jesus and the desperate needs of their village. They sat down and took in the sermon as total spectators staring at an oddity. They did not care about anyone but themselves and could not imagine bringing someone else to Christ.  They were his relatives.

Over on the other side of the lake at the end of this chapter the reaction is completely the opposite.

“53 When they had crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret and anchored there. 54 And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him, 55 ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was. 56 Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as any as touched Him were made well.”

  1. They recognized Jesus. The explosive difference is that they recognized Jesus; they didn’t merely “know” Him. The revelation of Jesus, and the implication of what it meant that He was among them, ignited a frenzy of excitement and action.  They saw Him as the healer, deliverer and life giver.
  2. They ran and began to carry others to wherever they heard He was. Because they recognized Him they made an instant connection between to the sickness and despair of those they knew and loved. They raced to get the needy to Christ.

Jesus has two kinds of people that relate to Him:  Relatives and Worshippers.  You are either a Relative or a Worshipper.  Entire congregations are either one or the other and the kind of meetings they have extend from their identity.

We began to enforce the fact that Jesus will be present in all of our gatherings and that this meant there was no regular meeting.  We instilled the revelation of what it meant to have Him present.  We provoked the excitement and expectation to the degree that the people run and get those who need miracles into our meetings.  Jesus meets them there everytime!
