BE SENSIBLE BUT REJECT HYSTERIA

Separating what is true from what is false about Coronavirus is difficult, because this is a new pathogen. I am the last person to ever recommend risky behavior, so I did a lot of homework before coming to the conclusions you will read here.

The best information I could find tells me that in 80% of the cases of those who have actually contracted the Coronavirus, the symptoms are mild. Out of 350 million Americans, as of today, 17 have died. And, in almost every one of those cases, there were serious pre-existing health issues.

In the field of viruses, I trust Doctor Marc Siegel as much as anyone. He has been on the frontline of several of these kinds of incidents. He said, “I have never seen a new virus or bacteria handled as well by our public health officials as this one, with sober attention paid to identifying, isolating and tracing contacts of known or suspected cases along with restricting travel as best they can.”

The bottom line is this: That by no means is an excuse for reckless behavior. We are still facing an unknown outcome. We must be vigilant but not terrorized.

At the very least wash your hands frequently and thoroughly. That means using soap for longer than 20 seconds. And avoid touching your face.

Now, let’s talk about the agenda of evil. Bill Maher said two things that indicate the Left may be trying to promote a panic. He said that he hoped the economy would tank so that Trump would not be reelected. No, I am not making that up. He wants people thrown out of work and millions of Americans broke, just to get rid of Trump.

The other thing he said is even more breathtaking. Maher said that one good thing that can come out of the Coronavirus is that people will “stop liking Trump.” Yes, the Left is that far gone.

When you see hysteria being stirred up, all you need to do is look for who that benefits.  If our economy is being devastated, who benefits from that? Look for those who are rooting for that to happen just to put the blame on Trump.

However, the greatest evil is coming from Satan himself. I believe he is trying to destroy the momentum of the church—a church that is just now shaking itself out of complacency! He wants panic to keep you out of gatherings where the fire and glory of God is flowing.

It is certainly not my intention to make this sound ‘super-spiritual.’ But, I can’t think of a better and safer place for you and your immune system than a Holy Ghost meeting!  What better place could you be, than in church praising and worshiping where the anointing is strong? Come on now. Instead of hunkering down and turning your home into a bomb shelter, grab the family and get to the house of God!

Talking about soul winning—now is the time to get a friend who is in the grip of fear and take them where the healing waters flow. Declare, “Washing your hands is important, but washing your soul is infinitely and eternally better. Come with me, I promise all your fears will vanish.” The sick will be healed. The pastor, prophet, evangelist, teacher, or apostle will declare a word over you that will bring joy, power and boldness! Stay home? Never!

That God-ordained conference must go on. That Sunday and midweek service is more important now than ever! Why sit at home to avoid an infection, when you can go to the House of God and get an infusion? Hallelujah!

The television news is attempting to pour human wisdom and dread into your spirit. Why not rather meet with a vessel of God who will rightly divide the Word of Truth and tell you what God says about your health, your future, and your destiny?

We must refuse to allow a human-based panic to cause us to become an underground church before the time.  Come together with the body of Christ, because:

God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of self-control. (2 Tim. 1:7)

And finally, these powerful promises:

You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night…nor of the plague that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction that surprises at noonday. Though a thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, it shall not come near you. Only a spectator shall you be as you witness the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the Most High your dwelling place, there shall no evil befall you, nor any plague come near your dwelling.  Psalm 91:5-7, 10

 

I AM EXCITED FOR MANY REASONS

The doctor told me I had one of the worst disk injuries he had ever seen.  This was my 4th doctor.  I survived 5 months of excruciating pain—but the worst was yet to come.  He told me I needed surgery fast.  But, choosing the best neurosurgeon meant I had to wait.  Waiting in pain—not knowing how long you’ll wait—is a hard thing.

During that season, I could not understand what was happening to me.  Our tent crusades were shut down.  I wondered if I would ever be able to stand again.

We get an appointment.  Even though the neurosurgeon had all my X-rays, his office ordered me to rush and get a new set 1 day before my appointment.  We had no idea how important that was.

We finally see him.  He says, “I compared your new and old X-rays.  Mario, this is a miracle.  If you had come in 4 weeks ago, I would have had to operate. It means going in through your stomach, leaving an 8-inch scar on your abdomen.  Even then, there was no promise you’d get better, and you’d face a year of rehab.  But something changed and now all you need is physical therapy.”  God makes us wait for good reasons.

I am excited because my injury even without surgery should take a year to recover.  Instead I am restored and, on a soul-winning vendetta.

Satan attacked me to stop our tent crusades.  He was frustrating an urgent project.  We have been building an industry around our tent.  We have amassed equipment, soldiers, and systems for a mighty evangelistic weapon.  One of our most important developments is our teamwork with Inner City Action and Frank Saldana. 

We developed an explosive training program called FIREPOWER.  This training is going to give us a national army.

Last year, it took several months prepare to do just one Living Proof Tent Crusade.  Now all the working parts are in place.  The machine is humming!

I am excited because we are going to do three crusades before Thanksgiving!  Here are the details:  

Living Proof Reno

 

 Living Proof Houston TX

 

 Living Proof San Antonio TX

My injury was one of the greatest tests of my life.  Strange as it may seem, the Lord visited me every night and poured in revelation and insights to the future of America.  He told me I would see unprecedented miracles—radical healings.  He told me He would pour out His Spirit on the inner cities and send forth a shock army—made up of people who were thrown out like garbage.

He warned me to expect revival in small churches among broken-hearted pastors.  He told me He was going to start a movement to break the political curse on America.

Yeah, I am excited…how could I not be!  -Mario Murillo

P.S. I know this sounds strange, but you need to pray about being in Reno for our Living Proof Crusade there.  Every atom of my being resonates with expectancy for this one event.  If you know anyone in need of a miracle—do what you must to get them under the tent!  To know more call us at 775 238 3473 or click here  mariomurillo.org  MM

SMALL CHURCHES: GOD’S SECRET WEAPON

Why are they God’s secret weapon?   The answer lies in what happens when a nation gorges on sin.  Nothing can protect the sin sick soul from disgust, nausea, and the unholy hangover.
A convicted heart can reach the point where a slick church concert, outfitted with lights and fog, or a canned motivational spiel, can repulse them, just as much as the sin they are trying to escape.
A soul soaked in the sludge of our time, can yearn to collapse at a simple wooden altar, sob deep tears of remorse, and welcome the warm hand of a true pastor on their shoulder.
How can a small church be God’s secret weapon? I discovered how when I read something about the birth of Christ.  Matthew Henry said, “If the Son of God must be brought into the world, one might justly expect that he should be received with all the ceremony possible, that crowns and scepters should immediately have been laid at his feet, and that the high and mighty princes of the world should have been his humble servants; such a Messiah as this the Jews expected, but we see none of all this; he came into the world, and the world knew him not; nay, he came to his own, and his own received him not.”
It was a token of their sin that the Jews believed such lavish pomp and circumstance would greet the birth of Jesus.  Are we no less wicked when we assume revival will be born  on gleaming campuses, amid varied enticements, extracted from the wisdom of fast food marketing?
We can miss the birth of an awakening just as much as they missed the birth of Christ.   America has many forgotten Bethlehems.  There are many hidden Mangers where revival can, and will be born.

Why the small church?  Maybe because a special brokenness dwells there.  Think of the couples who faithfully lead undersized churches. They have done all they know to do.  They have been called fools for passing on the gimmicks that might have grown their crowd.  They watched families leave them for the greener pastures of regional churches.
Sunday after Sunday, they sigh. and once again call up the courage to lead their people with integrity and patience.  They pray and see no great change.  However, God has shown me that when they least expect it the fire will fall.  A supernatural signal will go out.   And because they know no one but God did it they will leave their hand off of moving of the Holy Spirit.
Revival can come to any size church.  There is nothing wrong with a big church that got big the right way, and for the right reason.  And no church will stay small in revival.
Why is a small church God’s secret weapon?  Because it is the last thing Satan expects.  Even though he reads this, he will still be totally unprepared.
