NOT RACIST

Trump’s Tweet was not racist, but Nancy Pelosi’s statement was. She said that Trump was trying to make America white again. That is a patently racist remark. Only the Left gets away with making a racist remark while voting at the same time to condemn a Tweet that was not racist. Are you still there?
Trump should not back down from his Tweet about ‘the Squad.’ The Republican members of the House should not vote to condemn Trump. Trump is right to offer the Squad a return to their home country if they hate America.
Millions agree with this sentiment.  Millions of us feel that politicians who have been rescued from horrendous situations and who then call America evil—those who spout anti-Semitic taunts, and whose home nation is ten times worse—should consider going home.   The President correctly pointed out that if you are indeed a crusader against poverty, injustice, and oppression, the nation you fled is a prime candidate for your crusade.
Ilhan Omar said “I’m embarrassed and ashamed to live in this hypocrisy.” Okay then: why is she here?
Americans know ingratitude, arrogance, and ignorance when they see it. They see the Squad as flat out liars, who have zero good to say about America.
If there is racism in this at all, it comes from this Squad of politicians. In their bubble, the white male is the axis of all evil.  How is that not racist? We have the impossibly ironic and insanely amusing situation of people who have made undeniably racist remarks being seen as victims of racism.
Mark Levin said, “Her lack of gratitude and appreciation for America is repulsive. It’s no wonder why the media, such as the NY Times, love these provocative Congresswomen and it stems from their abysmal failure to the American people on their coverage of the Holocaust. Later, Pastor John Hagee’s comments that America is slipping away from Godliness toward self-dealing and secular humanism, which is contrary to the principles of our founding. Finally, Speaker Nancy Pelosi was accused of racism, was defended by Trump, and fired back labeling him a racist today.”

Nancy Pelosi is now possibly the most desperate politician in American history. She is flailing from one extreme to another in a blind search for a magic bullet with which to destroy Trump. She swung from correcting the very Squad she now defends, to attacking it, all within a 24 hour news cycle.

Here is what Nancy’s actions tell us: One day, she worries that alienating the Squad will offend Progressives. The next day she worries that the real America isn’t at all what left-wing news and social media say it is.

But she knows even more. She knows socialism is a bust. She knows millions are weary of political correctness. She destroys innocent reputations and calls for silly boycotts of even the most innocent companies and products. Americans are sick of the Left portraying everything they don’t like as being racist and Nazi.

Americans are outraged and nauseated by flag burnings and by athletes like Megan Rapinoe who make it ‘all about them.’

Americans see how Facebook, Twitter, Google, Instagram and YouTube insult our intelligence every day.  Zuckerberg and Dorsey claim they are not biased against conservatives and Christians, even as they ban more and more content on a daily basis.  They really do think you are stupid, which proves they are stupid.

Nancy Pelosi pulls the dumbest stunt yet, to get the House to formally condemn Trump’s Tweet as racist.  Not one Republican had better vote for this—not one.  It is a trap.

If there is one truth today it is this: You never apologize to the Left. Apologies open the door for them to lie and use it against you later. Trump learned this early on.

A vote to condemn Trump is a false flag. It’s a silly trap like asking the question, “Do you still beat your wife?” If you vote to condemn Trump you are admitting he is a racist.  If you don’t vote to condemn him, you are a racist.

It is a stunt born out of Nancy Pelosi’s panic and desperation.  And, speaking as a Spirit-filled believer—it is demonic.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, (R-Calif.), said in a news conference Tuesday morning that he did not believe Trump’s Tweets were racist.  I quote him: “I believe this is about ideology; this is about socialism versus freedom.”  McCarthy added that it was at a news conference on Monday, as the congresswomen responded to the President, that they “talked more about impeachment than anything else.”

He went on to say, “This is more from their base, it’s about politics, and it’s unfortunate.  We should get back to the business of America.” Amen, brother!

Too Rude?

The President wrote, “Someday I hope to meet you. When that happens, you’ll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!”
And, at a Jewish Seminary in New York, he blurted out “I am King Cyrus!”
But, the thing is, that wasn’t Trump…
It was President Harry Truman.  Okay, here’s a President who puts his intention to commit felony assault in writing—imagine the reaction of the media to a Tweet like that!
Truman essentially called himself the reincarnation of King Cyrus—was he delusional?
Oh, and did you know Harry Truman tried to use his power to draft an entire labor union into the United States Army in order to punish them for striking?  Trump is tame by comparison.
Imagine what CNN would do to President Truman today, if he was a Republican.

 

Mark Twain said, “Facts are a stubborn thing.”  It is a fact that Richard Nixon and Lyndon Johnson nursed greater hatred for the media during their time in office than Trump does today.

This historical perspective shows us Trump is not the madman the media needs him to be.
Notice I said, need.  They need to destroy him.  It is a bottomless need.  It is a need so intense it has consumed all rational journalism.  Facts have become irrelevant. There is even a name for it: Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Any good that President Trump does, they must ignore, or twist it into evil.  They have sold their souls.  As Alec Baldwin said, “There is no way to be too nasty to Trump.”
The need has reduced them to pathetic, blithering automatons who must tell the most trivial lies about him, such as killing goldfish, and how many scoops of ice cream he takes.
Instead of learning from the spanking they got during the election—they increased their daily venom.  They no longer care about ratings—as CNN’s abysmal ratings so eloquently prove. It is only about destroying Trump, even if it means self-destruction for those who hate him.
A football player gets punched, but the ref doesn’t see it—all he sees is the victim punch back, and throws a penalty flag.  Multiply that times a million—welcome to Trump’s world.
Not only is Trump not crazy—not only are his outbursts understandable—but I admire the way he has behaved with greater restraint than his predecessors. I doubt any of them could ever have imagined the level of tyranny, treachery, and treason that is leveled at him every day by the fake news. -Mario Murillo

  1. Truman letter to Paul Hume:

“Mr. Hume:

“I’ve just read your lousy review of Margaret’s (Truman’s daughter) concert. I’ve come to the conclusion that you are an ‘eight ulcer man on four ulcer pay.’

“It seems to me that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for it shows conclusively that you’re off the beam and at least four of your ulcers are at work.

“Someday I hope to meet you. When that happens, you’ll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!

“[Newspaper columnist Westbrook] Pegler, a gutter snipe, is a gentleman alongside you. I hope you’ll accept that statement as a worse insult than a reflection on your ancestry.”  – Harry S. Truman

 

 

Building something great

I have been pondering these questions:

Can we overcome the evil that is rampant in our times and do something big for God?

Can visionaries still come to the forefront and seize the day?

Can true prophets arise, and speak the heart of God to a dying world?

If you’re looking for a cheap pep talk—a soothing shortcut—or the flattering words of the God-is-our- Daddy Movement—if you think serving God is just a tongues-talking Candy Land game, then save us both time, and ease on back into your cocoon.

But if you look at the present system of church and feel empty—if there is an inner fire that tells you “THIS IS NOT IT!  THERE HAS TO BE MORE!” —you have come to the right place.

Our journey begins with a sad joke.  A mechanically challenged young man who wants to cut some firewood goes into a hardware store.  He asks the store clerk for advice.  After being shown the chain saws, the clerk says, “With a chain saw you can cut entire cords of wood in no time.”  Sold.

The young man returns three days later angry and frustrated. “You told me I could cut cords of wood.  All I got was a few lousy sticks, and this thing is way too heavy to handle.”  Baffled, the clerk grabs the saw, yanks the pullcord and the saw roars to life.  The young man asks, “What’s that noise?”

In the greatest moral war America has ever faced, the church is trying to saw wood with a giant unstarted chainsaw.   To fight that war, our Christian Colleges insist on graduating tepid troops of singing psychologists and grinning marketers.

 Secret Number One:  Separate yourself.   There is a promise in the Bible that is timeless, omnipotent, and unstoppable.  It is a promise that transcends the mad railings of evil men, dark times, and limited resources.  It is a promise that will prevail in any culture, and at any time. Read the promise carefully:

2 Timothy 2:20 “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 21 Therefore, if anyone cleanses (separates) himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. 22 Now, flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”

Those words were not written to some surfer in the 1960’s living in a bubble, but to a young leader embarking on ministry in the midst of the Roman Empire, facing both lash and lions.

Separate yourself from the drunken compromised preachers of today.  Separate yourself from shallow faith.  Separate yourself from those who need “a daily word from the Lord”—turning prophecy into an ecclesiastical horoscope.  Separate yourself from those who want to “activate gifts” without pressing in to know the heart of God.  If you do these things, a great work will have already begun.

 Secret Number Two: Learn practical dependency on the Holy Spirit.  Satan’s best work is not done by atheists, but by misguided Christians.  The devil prizes above all else his ability to get ministers to take matters into their own hands—to build by their own wits—and build the perfect disguise.  The current whited sepulchers are vast empires bearing Christian labels.  These are machines God never built.  They are trophies of hell meant to distract the Body of Christ, and waste time and money.

John 16:13: “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. 15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore, I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.”

What do you see in those verses?  They should both bless and horrify you.  All the authority to build, direct, provide, strengthen and guide the church was vested in the Holy Spirit.  We have offended a precious friend!  We have driven away the very Person we needed most!

The American church thrashes about like a child in a kiddy pool, never guessing what she is doing wrong.  She hired marketers when she could have simply asked the Holy Spirit. She pointed to false success to justify her existence.  We don’t need a superman. We need supernatural men and women filled with the Holy Spirit.

You must be baptized in the Spirit and then learn to be led of the Spirit.

 Secret Number Three: Trust the process. God invented planning. Therefore, the Holy Spirit will give you a plan. The trick is, you can’t take shortcuts. You won’t always see the logic.  And you may grow weary and even come to doubt the sanity of your course.

You won’t be allowed to do things that others get away with.  You will be driven to prayer and into the Word of God over every step you take. You are taking the road least traveled.

Do what God tells you to do, and never stop doing it.  Again: Trust the process.  No matter how your guidance seems to go against the grain, obey His voice!  When you have no money but God says invest it in a vision—do it!  When close associates turn on you—still do it!  Trust the process.  When you face a withering storm of criticism because of your choice, keep going forward.

Follow these three secrets. Then, look around.  You will see people doing mighty works of God in the Earth.  You will see the glaring difference between those who are fueled by the Holy Spirit and those who are not.

But, you ask, “Will these secrets work in this day and age?”  Yes! They always have and they always will!

 

WHAT HAPPENED IN RENO

Friday July 5th, Saturday July 6th, and Sunday July 7th Mario Murillo Ministries held the Living Proof World Convention in Reno/Sparks area at Spirit Filled Church with Pastor Roger Canary.
It was a radical move for any convention to only have two speakers, Perry Stone and I. Not only that, but we decided we would ‘shotgun’ every night—meaning we would both preach.  The big question is, Can today’s audiences abide two messages AND an extended worship time?
That’s the thing about listening to the Holy Spirit. When it makes no sense in the natural, it always works perfectly in the Spirit. In over 50 years of ministry, I have not seen a convention roll this smoothly and with so much fire. I have also not seen an audience with this pure of a motivation. There was zero fluff. It was total surrender to the Holy Spirit.
The urgency of the crowd made it necessary for us to begin each session 30 minutes early. The hunger of the crowd pulled on the speaker to deliver the deep things of God.  I was reminded of a phenomenon known as super-conductivity—when at 450 degrees below zero there is zero drag on an electric current, allowing for the purest flow of energy.

There was zero resistance to truth by the audience. It allowed us to preach the deep things of God. Their heart for God pulled the presence of God into the room.
Two dynamics will mark this gathering for all time. The first is this hunger in the people for God and truth. The second is the desperate hour of our nation.
The Spirit of God was warning, empowering, and directing, all at the same time.
The Lord laid the task upon me of driving home the point that the American church cannot escape her pivotal role in saving America. The enemies of God are too blatant and too demonically driven for the church to ignore.  There is no deferment in this war for the people of God in America. No one gets a pass.
My next task was to destroy the lies that disqualify us from effective warfare. We are out of time and out of excuses for our lethargy, division, and ignorance of God’s Word.  The Spirit of God verified my obedience in preaching, with undeniable signs and wonders breaking out among the people.

 

Still, there was a churning that foreshadowed more power and fire yet to come. Something holy and life- altering was rising in our midst.  It was left for Perry Stone to ignite the revelation that would touch off the glory.
Perry ripped the mask off what Satan is doing to Americans. He explained—better than anyone I have heard—how the spirit of antichrist is addicting Americans to drugs in order for them to be numb enough to accept socialism and the complete abdication of all personal freedom to the State. It is this drug-addled stupor that would let them take our firearms, our rights, and our Bibles.
“But,” Perry said, “there will be an outpouring!” That declaration touched off an explosion of Glory! It infused us—it was a quickening of body, mind, and spirit.

Soon, he was calling many to come forward to receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. It was breathtaking to see dozens charge to the front, and before they knew it, they were mightily baptized with glorious tongues of fire. Perry told me later that he had not seen a crowd receive the Holy Spirit so effortlessly.
Whatever lesser goal brought these people to our convention, it was now undeniable that they had forever left the realm of being merely “blessed” Christians, and were now beginning to form an army—an army with power, resolve, and clarity. We all knew we would never be the same.
I am looking forward to seeing the same outpouring of the Spirit in Fresno, and then—on to Los Angeles!

 

 

 

 

The Convention is sold out

 

The reservations for Perry Stone and Mario Murillo are now closed.  The Living Proof World Convention is totally full. There is still a possibility for more to attend but we must give seats to those who have registration. After they are accommodated, we will do everything we can to help those without reservations.

Here is important information for all who are registered.

We are hard at work preparing for your arrival. I wanted to take a moment and give you some tips to make this event everything you expect and more.

Registration: This year, we have eight stations to register you quickly. Here’s what you can do to speed up the process.

  1. Bring your printed ticket. This will speed you through the reservation process. If you are part of a group, you only need one person in line to register all of you. When you hand us your tickets you will immediately get wrist bands.
  2. If you have a reservation but have lost your ticket don’t worry. We have your name, but it will take a little longer to get your wristbands.
  3. We will be leaving a registration station open during the entire convention.

Get there early: You will soon see that the secret to enjoying this convention is to get to everything early.

  1. Get there early on Friday because we will begin registration at 5:30 PM. Remember, you will not lose your reservation no matter what, but those who are early will get the better seats.
  2. Do not remove your wrist band. We expect to be full for every session. Those with wristbands are allowed in before the general public. Again, get there early for the best seats.
  3. Another good reason to be early: Worship will begin 30 minutes before every session. For example Friday night the worship will begin at 6:30 and then at 10: AM on Saturday Morning.

The atmosphere of the meetings: You will get the meat of the Word of God—deep worship—the fire of God, and the signs and wonders of the Holy Spirit. You will be challenged to become great for God in a dark hour for our nation.

  1. Come prayed up: The more you open your heart to God in anticipation of this event to more you will receive.
  2. Come expecting: Do not limit God. He is able to do things you have waited a lifetime to see.

 

My prayer is that this will not only change your life but it will change our nation. See you in Sparks! Call us at 775 238 3473 for additional information.

WHAT WILL SAVE CALIFORNIA?

California’s ruling party does not appear to be breathing the same air as you and I. Their air supply must be pumped in from some parallel universe. It is apparently a toxic mix of the smug detached silliness of Justin Trudeau of Canada, who rejects out of hand any suggestion that his policies are wrong, and the leftist loony logic of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who thinks we are putting illegal aliens into Nazi-like concentration camps on our southern border.

Governor Gavin Newsom actually believes California works, even as he officially presides over America’s first ever Third World Country.

California was once the most scenic place on earth with its mountains, world class beaches, and an astounding Central Valley. But, beyond that, California was a vibrant economy that fostered the greatest middle class in all of America.  The roads, bridges, and infrastructure were once amazing. Their educational system was the envy of the world.  California was once the proof of the American Dream.

Today, with the help of Newsom and other progressives, California is being pushed to the brink of disaster. Tucker Carlson said, “Now the State of California is known for a very different set of images: Needles and feces in the street, a dying middle class, the country’s highest poverty rate, policies that prioritize illegal aliens over ailing American citizens. California is still a symbol. But today it’s a symbol of everything that’s going wrong with this country.”

Gavin Newsom is cheer leading a statewide meltdown while the state officials bask in inexcusable denial.

Again I quote Tucker Carlson, “For Gov. Gavin Newsom, California is humming along nicely, apparently, and he now says the Republican Party is heading into the waste bin of history saying, “America in 2019 is California in the 1990s. The xenophobia, the nativism, the fear of the other, scapegoating, talking down or past people. The hysteria. And so we’re not going to put up with that. We’re going to push back.” Newsom ended by saying, “What we’re doing is working. I think Democrats are winning right now.”

“Apparently, somebody forgot to remind the governor that 40 percent of his state’s population lives near poverty. And then, having among the highest taxes in the country and cost of living isn’t exactly giving them a leg up. And there’s this: On July 1, California drivers will pay six more cents a gallon for gas taxes. That’s on top of the 12 cents last year. And that’s on top of already having the highest gas prices in the country. It doesn’t appear drivers are winning.”

The L.A. Times tried to put a spin on people evacuating California. Their headline reads, “Who moves to California? The wealthier and better educated, mostly.”  Then in a line of breathtaking smugness and elitism, they slander those who leave the state: “The state attracts a steady stream of college graduates, especially from the East Coast, even as many less-educated residents move to neighboring states.” Get it? If you leave it’s because you are less educated.

How can they not see who is really flooding into California?  State officials welcome back many who committed crimes in the U.S. These violent offenders may get better medical benefits than the American citizens who are the victims of crimes they perpetrate daily.

But there is a much darker motive behind the spin. Of course some wealthy people are attracted to Banana Republics because of the availability of slave labor. Silicon Valley is a quantum of hypocrisy. It is a region of ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots,’ with nothing in between.

Tech giants toy with people’s privacy and punish opposing views, all the while patting themselves on back for being “woke” to human rights. They even force American citizens to train the foreigners who will take their jobs. You want Socialism? Well here it is, brother. Welcome to Venezuela by the Bay.

Then, there is the Central Valley which is setting records for addiction, violence, and despair. You should walk with me through neighborhood after neighborhood−you will not believe this is America. Here are the true ‘huddled masses’−they are cowering in horror because drug gangs have completely taken over. Cities in the Valley have a program that pays gang members not to shoot each other. That is called total surrender.  Nevertheless, God is able to do the unimaginable…even here.

I am a prisoner of hope to the dream God gave me of a River of Healing running straight down the Central Valley of California. I have to stand by what I know is the word of God!  It will take far, far more than one ministry to turn the tide. All I know is my assignment.

Isaiah 43:19 says, “Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”

Why do I believe that God will do a miracle in California? Because He told me He would. And, at this point, with all the villains who are running her into the ground, He is the only one who can save her.

TIME TO TALK

City after city in California has been hit by God.  In Marysville, He proved there was a harvest in California. In Paradise, He proved that sorrow and devastation will be healed. In Stockton, He proved that hate, violence, and addiction cannot stop God. Now the momentum for California is intensifying.

Let’s look back at some important facts: Five years ago, I had a dream. In the dream, I hovered over the State of California and saw Highway 99, from beginning to end, running down the great Central Valley. Before my eyes, it became a river, and a voice said, “This is the corridor of my Glory.”

There were trees on either side of this river which were bringing healing to the sick, and hope overwhelmed the poor and forgotten. “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light…”

I asked an artist to try and capture what I saw in the dream and this comes fairly close.

Five years later the Holy Spirit said to take our tent down that corridor and to watch Him do the impossible.

But at each point as we tried to fulfill this mandate from the Lord, we crashed into the impossible.  And each time God destroyed the barriers, right before our very eyes.

Marysville was heavily resisted, but became a harvest field overflowing with souls.

Paradise was beyond impossible, if there is such a thing. The city had been destroyed and the people had gone to other cities to live.  To this day no one can explain how the tent was full night after night.  And, we saw powerful, miraculous healings and many people were born again!

Stockton saw 17 murders during the time we reached out to that city. A stray bullet hit the truck of one our leaders.  Still, we did not back down, and neither did the Lord−He brought in many lost souls and many brave Christians. When the fire marshal ordered us to take away the sides of the tent, which meant we would only have a roof, I thought it was an invitation for disaster.  Instead, it backfired on the enemy. The sound of worship, preaching, and miracles were broadcast across the vast park, and acted like a fishing net for the Gospel!

These tent meetings have brought desperately needed encouragement to the Body of Christ that is laboring in these cities. A fresh fire and unity has come among the pastors. Most of the lost who found Jesus had never seen anything like these meetings.

But the news gets even better, for, now it is time for me to talk to you about Fresno, California.  Fresno is so hard hit by crime, that at this moment they are raising money to pay gang members not to shoot each other. I kid you not—hiring them to not kill each other−which reeks of total surrender on the part of city officials.

Two years ago, one politician in Fresno got mad at us for revealing the true numbers of homeless who were living on the streets, and the amount of violence and despair that were a daily occurrence in that city. He actually fought to keep us out of the city. He used his influence to block us from getting a permit for the tent. But as Jesus said, “The gates of hell will not prevail against you.” And they didn’t.

We went ahead, and we saw an amazing meeting at Fink White Park. Now we are going after the most amazing tent site we have ever seen. I can’t tell you about it yet, because we are currently in very sensitive negotiations.

HERE ARE BIG REASONS TO BE EXCITED ABOUT FRESNO:

-The snowball effect: Living Proof Fresno will have the firepower of all the previous tent crusades combined. Each tent crusade grew in power and intensity. People from Marysville came to Paradise and then people from Marysville and Paradise came to Stockton.  An army is forming that is marching down Highway 99 following the River of God. The atmosphere, miracles, and conviction keeps rising from one tent meeting to the next. That is why we know that Fresno is going to be the most powerful outreach, with the greatest number of workers yet.

-We are going to use a new and exciting tactic in Fresno: The Night of MiraclesOur standard procedure is to begin in a city with a leader’s lunch followed by a prayer rally. Not this time. The Holy Spirit made it clear we are to do something completely new.

I felt the Holy Spirit say, “Why do you do a rally just to promote the coming tent crusade? Make your opening rally just like a night in the tent.” That is exactly what we are going to do.

The Night of Miracles will be exactly like one of the nights in the tent. The Lord said that I should give the city a true taste of what they will experience in the tent. First, we were to find a church to advertise to all who need Jesus or who need a miracle, and get them to this church. That night will launch the momentum toward the next tent meetings. Think of it−just one notable miracle, or one notable conversion, could light the fuse for a great awakening in Fresno.

For one night only, we are coming to Fresno. This is our D-Day.  A single assault on the beach will begin weeks of outreach to the city of Fresno.  Why this never occurred to me before, is baffling. But like all God-ideas it is awesome in its simplicity.

Anyone who is paying attention knows California doesn’t have much time left—without a miracle this place will turn into a third world country, and many places already have.

 

I am asking you two simple things: The first is to pray, and the second is to consider coming to Fresno for this single Night of Miracles. I know it will be a night that rips down strongholds of evil, ignites the Body of Christ to great and mighty faith, and confirms the Word of God with incontrovertible miracles.

Pray! And please, try to be there for The Night of Miracles Stay tuned! After this the tent is coming to Fresno!
