So Now

If you woke up today with a depressing sick feeling that America has lost its mind you are not alone. Highly visible people…especially CNN approved of violence for a kid who did nothing but smile.
It turns out he was just waiting for a bus. It turns out that a group called the Black Hebrew Israelites came over and started cursing him because he wore a MAGA hat. It turns out the famed Indian in question—who may or may not be a Vietnam veteran—also came over and started beating his drum in front of him.  It turns out the boy did absolutely nothing wrong. For this they wanted to kill him.
Here are the things Tucker Carlson told us that leftists said after the video came out: “Maggie Haberman of the New York Times suggested the boys needed to be expelled from school. Ana Navarro of CNN called the boys racists and “a**wipes” and then went after their teachers and their parents.
Others called for violence against them. CNN legal analyst Bakari Sellers suggested one of the boys should be, “punched in the face.” Former CNN contributor Reza Aslan agreed. Aslan asked on Twitter, “Have you ever seen a more punchable face than this kid’s?” Longtime CNN contributor Kathy Griffin seemed to encourage a mob to rise up and hurt these boys, tweeting, “Name these kids. I want names. Shame them. If you think these effers wouldn’t dox you in a heartbeat. Think again.” She repeated her demand again later: “Names please. And stories from people who can identify them and vouch for their identity. Thank you.”
Hollywood film producer Jack Morrissey tweeted that he wanted the boys killed: “MAGA kids go screaming, hats first, into the woodchipper.” He paired that with a graphic photo. Actor Patton Oswalt linked to personal information about one of the boys, in case anyone wanted to get started on that project.”
In all fairness, at first the video looked like the kid might be a provocateur.  The boys behind the young man in question were making tomahawk gestures and that is offensive. But that does not justify the tidal wave of rage by “adults” in this incident.
The terrifying part—the part that fuels this blog—is that after proof the young man’s innocence, they still want to harm him.  They will not take back their vile and vicious threats or even acknowledged that they got it wrong. A writer for Saturday Night Live is currently offering to perform a sex act on anyone who punches the 15-year-old in the face.
The message to you is that wearing a MAGA hat automatically makes you a racist worthy of being assaulted.
How vile—how despicable—how debauched, must they become before America right or left rises up and says we will not tolerate this kind of anarchy, hate and vulgarity? When wearing a hat is an automatic license to be attacked and called racist becomes normal no one will be safe.
This young man was exercising his right of non-violent protest at the March for Life. The irony is that he was doing it near the birthday of Martin Luther King who gave his life for this very kind of protest. While leftists celebrated King’s life, these leftists were blatantly desecrating his ideals.

Breaking News

In a startling new development, I am able to make this announcement: something that has just happened that will dramatically enhance Living Proof California.
I am rejoicing right now! 2 Chronicles 29:36 says, “And Hezekiah rejoiced, and all the people, that God had prepared the people: for the thing was done suddenly.” Suddenly, we have a new opening night for Living Proof California.
We were not scheduled to begin until March 10th. But that has now been changed because of an amazing breakthrough. We have added a city, Manteca! Marysville will still happen on March 10th-16. But here’s more on what has just happened:
The City of Manteca made a historic request of Frank Saldana and Inner City Action. You know that Frank and his team are the ones who set up our crusade tent and do so much of the groundwork for the Living Proof Crusades.
Anyway, the city made a request of Frank and his team to do something extraordinary. Here is how the Manteca/Ripon Bulletin Newspaper reported it: “The Stockton-based non-profit with a solid history of helping resource and providing alternatives for homeless in Manteca, is securing a special events permit to pitch a rival tent in the parking lot of the old Qualex building owned by the city at 555 Industrial Park Drive. Inner City Action and the Manteca Police community resource officers have been reaching out to the homeless asking if they would be interested and open to assistance in a revival tent setting. They reported that a large number have replied in the affirmative.”
A large number of the homeless are coming to our tent! Frank called to tell me this miracle and I said, “Let’s not wait! Let’s join forces and bring in a massive harvest—not just of the homeless but the entire community. LET’S MAKE THIS SUNDAY AT 6 PM THE OPENING NIGHT OF LIVING PROOF CALIFORNIA!”

We are combining forces to seize this unprecedented favor. The tent is already up! Teams are reaching out and feeding, clothing and providing opportunities for the needy to get lasting help. The tent is already up with Inner City Action doing events throughout the days. To find out more about what they are doing go to  http://www.innercityaction.org/
Our team will join them this Sunday Night. I am bringing a message to the people of California from the Lord. The Holy Spirit will confirm His word with signs, wonders, and miracles. I can’t control my excitement. Just writing the words LIVING PROOF CALIFORNIA BEGINS THIS SUNDAY NIGHT CAN MAKE ME SHOUT!
California needs an astounding intervention of God. Please do not sit on the sidelines. If you live near Manteca do what you have to in order to be at the historic opening night! No matter what pray for this epic breakthrough.
THIS SUNDAY NIGHT JANUARY 27TH 6 PM 555 INDUSTRIAL PARK DRIVE MANTECA CA

Breaking News about California

This will be the result of years and years of preparation. The time is now the place is the Central Valley of California. If you can’t grasp why this is so strategic then you have not been watching our nation unravel. At this moment, the government of California has made it a goal to transform every person in the state into a post-Christian world.
Sacramento has no intention of making life better for Americans in the State. Their radical agenda is all about spending and essentially looting the middle class in California.
Gavin Newsom is barely Governor and is already buying ads in battle ground states to attack Trump. He is on a crusade to get Trump impeached.  The reason I bring this up is show you that what is happening transcends politics. This is a war on a way of life.
It doesn’t matter if you are Democrat or Republican. What they are doing to the people of California—especially youth—should enrage all sides.
What is at stake here is the very future of our children. And it is even worse than that: your Christian child is already in the cross hairs of a gender revolution that will bully them into submission. Bible faith will be openly ridiculed. And like an ominous shadow of the Book of Revelation…their economic future be conditional on their submission to the agenda.

Already, the symptoms of leftist ideology that have ruined so many nations have turned vast parts of the State into poverty, crime and despair. None of these things matter to the elite that love to appear to be for the people.
These leaders see themselves as revolutionaries bent of spreading a movement away from God and toward socialism. The future for the church in California is—without any doubt—one of controlled speech and regulated activity. Believe me, the Bill of Rights won’t matter.
The dream that let me see Highway 99 from heaven’s perspective with a river of revival and healing flowing overwhelms me every hour of the day. I have no illusions about my role. I am only one preacher with one very clear mandate.
From the day that I first step foot on the U.C. Berkeley Campus in 1970, until this moment, God had been preparing me for something. I saw the weed of Marxism germinate in the heart of American youth. I knew it was a cancer. I knew it would bring freedom to an end if it was not stopped.
I also knew no human political platform could stop it. The miracle that diffuses the spell of wicked socialism happens in the heart. A witness must be given.
Mario Murillo Ministries is not the savior of California. Only Jesus Christ is! However, we have endured decades of honing and training to face this zero hour in California.
Our tent will rise if key parts of the Central Valley beginning in Marysville this March.  We are asking the Lord for an outpouring of His Spirit that will scatter devils to the four winds and set the captives free.
At this moment, I am pleading with you to join our cause. This is not a funding raising letter although your gifts would be greatly appreciated. No, this blog is about churches, intercessors, and workers.
Jesus said to pray the Lord of the harvest that He would send workers.  My prayer is that you will use the link at the end of this message to take a stand against the destruction of America and for lost souls to meet Jesus.

What do I need now? I need pastors to come alongside and help. These precious young souls who will saved from untold darkness need loving families to disciple them. We need an army of workers to assist in praying for the sick to be healed—to give away the vast supply of food and clothing we aim to deliver into the hands of the poor.
It is time for our Christian faith to activate! It is time to leave the safe zones.  I am not guaranteeing these meetings will turn California around. Although I know they can. What I do guarantee is that your life will be changed dramatically by praying and working with us.  I also guarantee that these nights in the tent will be the mightiest demonstration of the power of God in our history.
Do you live anywhere near these Hwy 99 cities?  Paradise, Oroville, Marysville, Sacramento, Stockton, Manteca, Modesto, Turlock, Los Banos, Merced, Fresno, Visalia, and Bakersfield? Then click on the link to let us know you will help redeem this time for Jesus.  Even if you live far from California you can seek God for miracles, favor, tent sites, food, clothing and many other desperately needed miracles.
Thank you for reading this. I am asking God to set your hear on fire right now!
Remember even if you live far away you can at least pray. California effects the world. Click on this link to join our movement. Act now!

WHY IT WILL BACKFIRE

Emboldened by overstated victories, and the madness of the media, the Democrat party will persecute the church with abandon.  I believe we’ll see it almost immediately. The mood—the one that pleases people when Christians are harassed and blamed, is upon us.  I am warning you it’s about to spike, and the mindless ferocity of it will surprise you.

A moment like this is recorded in the Book of Acts: Acts 12:1-3, “Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. 2 Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3 And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter also.”

As I prayed, I experienced colliding emotions of dread and excitement.  The Holy Spirit made it clear that persecution against Christians is going to spike in the United States in the next few months.  He also made it clear that this would touch off a towering flow of miracles of healing.

Satan wants America destroyed.   It is the grand prize.  With America gone, the devil can unleash worldwide devastation.   But the global tyranny that he craves cannot happen until the American firewall is removed.

He also knows that he can only destroy America from within.  Somehow, he must pit us against each other. 

The only deterrent to civil war at this point is Christianity.  Notice that I do not say the church, I say Christianity.  The church is sidelined by equal parts division and denial.  The Christianity seeping out despite religion is the only thing protecting us.

The devil’s weapon of choice is hate.  He must foment hate.  Today, that hate is coming from the very people claiming to be fighting hate: secular progressives, and social justice warriors.  You have seen how the things that were once loving, moral and trustworthy, including marriage, manhood, military service, freedom of speech, witnessing, the Bible and, yes, freedom itself, are now hateful.

 

God has been lovingly warning the American Church.  He has repeatedly ordered the church to stand as one against immorality, but she has flatly refused.  God now reserves the right to use persecution to wake up the church and spare the nation.

Is there any good news in this?  There is much good news, but only for a certain group.  The core of Christians who refuse to side with the compromised church, and who are seeking Jesus, will be protected and used mightily.  Persecution will backfire!

The boomerang effect is seen in ancient Israel.  Exodus 1:12 says “But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites.”

After Herod arrested Peter, an angel appeared and brought him out.  This miracle ignited the church.  I am telling you what the Holy Spirit has told me.  Every vessel that seeks God right now will receive greater power and greater miracles.

Call it legend, call me crazy, but I know that this wave of persecution is here.  We can turn it all around.  We can regain lost ground.  Those who disobey God cannot escape this misery and those who obey God will granted special grace and increased supernatural power.

Paul wrote to a worried Philippian church to tell them about the shock outcome of his imprisonment.  It serves as a promise to us of what is about to happen as a result of persecution in America.

Philippians 1:12 “And I want you to know this, dear brothers: Everything that has happened to me here has been a great boost in getting out the Good News concerning Christ. 13 For everyone around here, including all the soldiers over at the barracks, knows that I am in chains simply because I am a Christian. 14 And because of my imprisonment, many of the Christians here seem to have lost their fear of chains! Somehow my patience has encouraged them, and they have become more and more bold in telling others about Christ.”

Writing about the book of Acts Church Matthew Henry said this:  “The persecution that was designed to extirpate the church was by the overruling providence of God made an occasion of the enlargement of it. Christ had said, I am come to send fire on the earth; and they thought, by scattering those who were kindled with that fire, to have put it out, but instead of this they did but help to spread it.” Amen!

 

Strong medicine

There is a widespread spirit of heaviness on God’s people.  It is a crushing weight of care.  It is battle-fatigue from the constant shelling of bad news.   The media barks, “We interrupt this bad news to give you more bad news.”

Hearing the angry debates—seeing the rioting in the streets and Islamic terror attacks drains sanity from souls.

Not only this, we have to hold in enormous frustration: stupidity and wickedness get a megaphone—wisdom and righteousness get duct tape over their mouth.

These are the times that rob inner peace—that bring intense restlessness—that rinse the color and enjoyment from our life.

These are the times Jesus warned us of and gave us direction for.

First He said, “And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But not a hair of your head shall be lost. By your patience possess your souls.” – Luke 21: 17-19

Talk about mindless hate! The liberal, and feminist bias toward Islam and hatred for Christ is mind-bending.  It makes zero sense.  Yet that is exactly the kind of irrational hatred our Lord predicted. It is a weariness to believers who openly share their faith.

Then He said: Luke 21: 34 “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35 For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth.”

The dumbest thing anyone ever said to me: “when you come to Jesus your problems are over.”  I never had problems until I met Jesus!  I kept wondering why am I being attacked?  Why am I being shot at from all directions?  Why do I meet stiff resistance every time I try to do something meaningful for Jesus?

Does this sound familiar? You walk through life, minding your own business and wham!  A coworker rages at you for no reason. Money evaporates.  Your health fails.  Loved ones abandon God.  A confluence of demonic attacks falls on you.  Life has never felt so cruel and unfair.

At the apex of one of these attacks something happened to me.  A terrifying thought became a glorious thought:  SOMEBODY IS MAD AT JESUS AND THEY ARE TAKING IT OUT ON ME!  Suddenly, I felt qualified to fight back. And I felt profoundly honored.

Think about it!  A soldier does not go to war because he has a personal grudge against the enemy.  He didn’t declare war—his nation did.  He is not responsible for the battle plan—the military is.  He is not paying his own way to the war—his government is.

Let’s rehearse the things that are not the soldier’s responsibility.  The training he needs—the weapons he needs—the food and shelter he needs—the assignment he needs…these and a host of other things are not his responsibility.

The soldier does not create the organized army.  He does not carry the weight of how the war will be won.

If he sits in the foxhole feeling alone and unfairly attacked it is because he forgotten who he is and why he is being attacked.  He has taken the battle into his own hands!

But when he remembers that he was recruited—when he recalls that he is not alone but a part of a victorious army and all he is called to do is obey orders—it changes everything!

When we take the attack personally we lose hope.  When we say, “The battle is not mine, it’s God’s,” we cannot be defeated.  Let’s stay out of things that do not concern us.  Let’s keep our conflict in the hands of God.  We must discern when we are operating in our own strength and by our own wits.

Remembering your attacks are not personal is plainly seen in these verses:  Luke 21: 12 “But before all this occurs, there will be a time of special persecution, and you will be dragged into synagogues and prisons and before kings and governors for my name’s sake. 13 But as a result, the Messiah will be widely known and honored.  14 Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will answer; 15 for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.

When they were arrested it felt personal. When they were dragged to court it felt personal.  But when they were asked to speak it became God’s battle and Christ is glorified!  He gave them the words and the courage to speak.  He even told them not to prepare words beforehand.  That means that we are not to devise ways of fighting back.  It means we will get what we need when we need it.

Paul experienced the same thing: “Philippians 1:12 But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel…”

Right now we have a presidential election that embodies everything that is wrong with our nation.  It is a hair-pulling, maddening, terrifying and draining moment for believers. We must put the battle back in God’s hand and let Him replenish our peace and joy.

Never forget! We have the best message humanity has ever heard, and the best book ever written.   We have the best captain in the universe!  We have the all-powerful Holy Spirit sent to aid us.   We have access to power, strategy and wisdom.  All of this and more can direct our fighting.

Someone is mad at Jesus and they are taking it out on you?  What an honor!  What an opportunity!  When Satan comes at you let Jesus come at him!

The first time an angel stares at you in heaven with wonder and admiration for your service to Christ…you’ll know why your trials are worth it all.  The first time you hear “well done” from Jesus you won’t remember the trials.  No wonder Paul said, “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”-Romans 8:18

 

 

 

 

MANY WILL FALL AWAY BUT AN EVEN BIGGER HARVEST IS COMING

I am only days away from making one of the biggest announcements in our history.  For now, I need you to read something that explains my blogs better than anything else.  The greatest harvest in the history of Christianity will be placed in the hands of special ones—faithful ones.   Already they are being chosen.  Already they have an appointment with destiny that will bring them into an unimaginable nearness to Jesus.

These blogs rain down rebuke on the unrighteous leader—and with equal fervency—prophesy to the righteous core who have held to their integrity.  That is because—with atom of my being—I know the amazing act of God I have described to you is on the horizon. That is why we are about to take the boldest and scariest step in our history.

Some say I am always negative, but honestly, I have no say in the matter. The Holy Spirit dictates what should be said.  He understands the great crimes being committed today and the strong medicine required to be ready for the astounding harvest.

Day after day, I have written the burden the Lord has placed upon me.  Often, the words have been directed at certain leaders.  The messages have targeted shallowness, compromise, hypocrisy, and gross negligence.  Gross negligence, because it wasn’t just what they did that made them despicable—it was when they did it.  They thrashed about in false success—leaving the flock unguarded—as Satan unleashed his most destructive assault on the church and the nation.  That is a profound accusation…but I stand by it.

 

 

They made a conscious decision to exchange their calling for temporal success.  They knew they were tailoring their sermons to inflate attendance even as it deflated discipleship.  They wantonly closed their ears to the political policies that dismantled faith and morality in America.

They are as guilty as those who voted to destroy marriage—they are as guilty as those who voted to force our taxes to fund abortions—they are as guilty as the architects of the God-hating mobs that roam our streets, teach in our universities, and people our institutions.

“How could you accuse me of such things?”  To which I answer, with a broken heart, “How could you have chosen to build a man-made entertainment center when you could have surrendered to God for a moral awakening?  You could have seen revival.

Am I harsh?  Not so much as Charles Finney who said, “If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it.  If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it.”

But, these blogs which rain down rebuke on the unrighteous leader, do—with equal fervency—prophesy to the righteous core who have held to their integrity.  That is because—with atom of my being—I know an amazing act of God is on the horizon.

It will be at once glorious and humiliating.  Glorious to a company of people who, at this moment, labor in obscurity.  Suddenly they will be raised up.  At the same time many who are celebrities will suffer a great demotion.

Those who are called to this will ask and receive things that prior generations could not imagine.  We are talking about awesome things!

They don’t know who they are.  The Lord is testing them in obscurity.  It’s the only way that yields a vessel who can be trusted with great power.  They have been rejected for refusing to conform to the counterfeits.  God made them misfits.  Because He knew what was coming.

God not only knew the insanity of today was coming—He took steps to prepare a special relationship, that would produce special powers for His children. Think of that!

Jesus saw the future and uttered an explosive prayer: PRAY THE LORD OF THE HARVEST TO SEND WORKERS INTO THE HARVEST.  Notice He did not say ministers, or celebrities.  He said workers.  Many want the titles, attention, and rewards…but they don’t want to do the work.  A special core burns white hot with passion win lost souls and heal the sick.  They are hidden now but soon they will shine like the sun.

But there is another miracle awaiting this unique breed.  They will be allowed to see the world around them from the vantage point of the throne of God.  Ephesians 2: 6 says “and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus…”

What do you see from this vantage point?  You see that all the vile railings of our culture are not—in any way—a threat to the purposes of the almighty.  He knows the hollow arguments of the haters.  He is not moved by the mental monopoly of fake news and leftist social media.  He saw it all coming and prepared the response.

God is selecting people and working in them for unmatched power to attack evil.  Great visionary outreaches are coming and they will be funded supernaturally. The Lord of the universe is not poor.  He has pooled untold wealth to transfer it into the hands of trusted, proven, purified vessels whose only passion is to obey.

Finally, those who are deeply frustrated in their calling must learn the secret of the divine slingshot.

They are being hurt, wounded and brought to the brink of despair before their breakthrough.  In their pain and agony, they will cry out why—why am I being pulled away from my promise?  Why does each day take me further and further away from what You promised me?

Like a slingshot, God is deliberately building up the tension—the frustration—the fire to act…and at just the right moment, He will release you.   There is a great falling away coming and it will result in new voices and new anointing leading to the greatest harvest of souls in history.

 

IF

 

If only we could hear it! How obvious yet we missed it.  How amazing that it was right in front of us and we didn’t realize it! What do we need most at the beginning of 2019? What is it? What do we need to hear?

Here it is: If you could hear Jesus praying for you in the next room, you would not fear a million enemies! Imagine being able to hear Jesus praying for you? Here are the explosive facts about about Jesus praying for you.

He started praying for you the moment you got saved.  The world can’t enjoy the benefit of His prayers.  John 17: 9 says, “I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.

He ill never stop praying for you.  Hebrews 7: 25 “Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”  At this moment He is lifting your situation before the Father and that prayer is unending.

He prayed that Satan would not touch you.  John 17: 15 I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.

He prayed for you in advance of your greatest hour of testing, just as He did for Peter.  Luke 22:32 “But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”

Here is the most important fact of Jesus praying for you: He says you are His.  Let’s take a closer look at what that means.  His love for you is not just tender it is fierce.

Consider the mama grizzly as she snuggles her cub.  She is the essence of love.  Now, try to come between her and her cub. The loving mom instantly becomes the most terrifying creature on earth.  She will stop at nothing to protect her cub. Both the tender moment and the terrifying one are expressions of the same love.

Here’s the thing…that instinct is from God.  The same Jesus who comforts you with unmatched tenderness turns His wrath on the evil one when you are threatened.  It would be breathtaking to see the difference in His intercession before the Father when you need comfort, and when you need to be rescued from Satan’s attack.

He will not let anything come between you and Him.  Paul said it this way: Romans 8:38 “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Imagine what He is saying about you in prayer at this very moment! That is why I say: if you could hear Jesus praying for you in the next room, you would not fear a million enemies.  Faith will let you hear Him praying and every fear you have about 2019 will instantly evaporate.
