THE ANOINTING TO SHAKE AMERICA.

I’d like to talk about prayer. People make two statements. One is, “I have a prayer life.” And there is what the saints of old said, the world changers: “I have a life of prayer.”

The person who has a prayer life designates a certain part of their busy day to go and pray. A person with a life of prayer, designates a portion of their busy time of prayer to do life…

When Paul said, “Pray without ceasing” I am certain he understood that we had to sleep at night,  that we had to have jobs. What he was talking about is that we must get to the point where life is interrupting our prayer time, and NOT that our prayer time is interrupting our life. Meaning, I am in an attitude and state of prayer, all the time.

No matter how much I can plan, sometimes a jet is late. Sometimes a flight will be cancelled, and I arrive at the church where I am to preach, only moments before I am supposed to preach. I can’t rely on an afternoon where I was alone with God. What I rely on is the fact that I never broke that communion at all. Just as Paul told Timothy, “Be instant in season and out of season.”

That is what needs to happen. We need to rediscover prayer to the point where, I think, “I don’t want to leave this room to go do life, because I’m not ready yet.

That’s what Martin Luther said. He said, “I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.” https://www.goodreads.com/author/quotes/29874.Martin_Luther

As much as I love my brothers and sisters in the Lord, and I certainly don’t want to sound like I am anti-pastor. I’m not. I think there are a handful of men and women that have been real traitors, but by in large, the pulpits in America are God-fearing, sacrificing men and women who love their people and would do anything for them.

Men and women who didn’t buy into the big screens, skinny jeans and fog machine version. And they paid a desperate price for it. Some of them have lost church members. But I have a word of encouragement for them: It is going to turn, because America’s appetite is turning. And the person who is in search of a good cup of coffee and a 12-minute sermon with valet parking, is a dinosaur.

They are going to be replaced by, “I don’t need coffee because I’m wide awake. I don’t care how long you preach, Pastor, because you are turning me from a confused person, into a soldier, fit for war. Pastor you are making me armed and dangerous, to fight for my community, and against the works of the devil.

The appetite is changing. So, I would tell every Pastor, hold on just a little longer. Don’t compromise the blood, the cross, the second coming of Christ. Don’t sacrifice the baptism in the Holy Spirit or signs, wonders and miracles done according to the Spirit of God. And most of all, preach holiness, “without which, no one will see God” (Hebrews 12:14).

God has placed a tremendous burden on me for this hour, to speak what He says, when I hear it.

Scientists discovered, some years ago, that the electricity that runs through your house is far more powerful than we ever imagined. An electric current, at a certain temperature, far below zero, begins to superconduct. This means that at room temperature there is a drag on electric current.

Now, if you use that as an analogy for the anointing: when a vessel of God dies to self, they remove the drag that is on the anointing. When we witness in history a woman like Kathryn Kuhlman, or a man like Oral Roberts, healing evangelists, we wonder why they operated on such a seemingly different plane of power than others. The secret is that they learned to superconduct, and not allow the anointing to be dragged by anything. They had no axe to grind in the pulpit, a personal viewpoint, a hidden agenda to make money, or to be famous. They simply wanted to please the Holy Spirit. And, in that obsession, they superconducted and the anointing flowed freely.

That is also my obsession. When I get in the tent and I begin to preach to lost souls, and I hear that a parent brought a child who is dying of leukemia, or that a man with children has had multiple heart attacks and maybe won’t live through the next few months, and, instead of relying solely on doctors, they come to my tent. That places an awesome responsibility on me. Not to believe that I can heal them, but to believe that I can get out of God’s way.

When I wrote the book, VESSELS OF FIRE AND GLORY, at a certain part of the book I felt a certain grief. I grieved over the Holy Spirit. Because the Bible says, “Do not quench the Spirit. Do not grieve the Spirit. And that word grieve means, don’t hurt Him. We have broken His heart. I began to see how He was insulted, marginalized, misrepresented and reduced to some New Age ‘force.’ This member of the Godhead, the Holy Spirit was wounded and hurt by our behavior. Because Jesus emphatically stated that it is to our advantage that I leave. It is for our sake I must go away, because otherwise the Helper cannot come. And we have rejected that help. We thought we knew how to preach better.

Billy Graham said that it amazed him how the preaching of the simple Gospel, and the truth of it, that the Spirit of God would drive it into the hearts of men everywhere he went. We have got to let the Holy Spirit take over again. He knows how to handle the virus. He knows how to handle the government. He knows what we ought to be saying.

When I began writing my blog, and writing this book, and speaking out, I said, “Lord, You can’t anoint me to do that! You can anoint me to do ministry, and He is, but why?” The answer was found in 1 Samuel 10:6, “Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you mightily, and you will show yourself to be a prophet with them; and you will be turned into another man. And when these signs meet you, do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.”

The kind of things I am saying in this hour would have been inappropriate, even ten years ago. But this is what the occasion demands. And that is why, Pastor! Let the anointing have its way. Begin to speak the message that may not be the line of your denomination. It may not be the tradition that you are used to. It is from the word of God, but it is a focus on exposing the evil of the swamp and the power of God to overcome that evil, and bring America back to God.

I want to pray for every Christian that loves America. Do you love this country – the home of the brave, the land of the free? The land of opportunity created and forged out of a wilderness by a miracle from God. We can’t lose it. We can’t lose this gift. And the stupidest reason ever to cripple our children with socialism, would be because they were too afraid that they couldn’t succeed without the government being their nursemaid.

God, I pray for an awakening. I pray an anointing for common house cats will turn back into lions. I pray that a fire will be ignited in the heart of everyone listening. Those who have been called by You to preach your Gospel in a pulpit, as a Pastor, help them to see their duty. Help them to understand that safety is in obedience and not in escape.

If we’re in rebellion against God, if God has told us to speak out, there will be nowhere to run and nowhere to hide, unless we obey the Lord. Jonah discovered that, when he was told to go to Nineveh, but refused, and went in the opposite direction. God, let us run toward the truth, and not away from it. Give us the courage to speak out in an hour when thieves are robbing us of our rights and our freedoms. Lord, let us be turned into a new vessel of God, and do what the occasion demands. In the Name of Jesus. Amen.

MISSING THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITY

This is a deeply frustrating moment for me. The Reason? It is because I see two forces in the process of colliding. One is wonderful beyond words, and the other is inexplicably tragic.

The American church is being handed the opportunity of a lifetime, but she has not seized it. Right now, a great number of Americans want to be born again. I have never seen so many—not even during the Jesus Movement.

I know what the media wants you to believe about Americans. They want you to believe that the message of the Gospel is grossly unpopular—but that is a lie! And the paradox is that the only way to prove that it is a lie, is by shaking the church out of the very tragedy I am trying to explain.

What is holding us back? It seems we are drained from taking out the trash. What in the world do I mean by that?

Nehemiah 4:10, “Then Judah said, ‘The strength of the laborers is failing, and there is so much rubbish that we are not able to build the wall.’”

Think of that! One of the most glorious and urgent projects in history was held up for the strangest of reasons.  Nehemiah’s workers faced ridicule from their enemies. They faced terrorism from surrounding tribes. But it was taking out the garbage and removing all the rubble from the past that sapped their will to build.

Do you realize what Democrat leaders have done? They have made Americans utterly miserable. Even Biden’s avid fans (if there are any) are in agony because of his leadership. Democrat Governors like Newsom and Cuomo are being assailed for destroying lives. Millions are groping in darkness, in a despair that has been created by the Democrat Party, which is why they are ripe for the Gospel.

That is why our tent overflows with unchurched people who are yearning for the preaching of the Word of God. They want to know Jesus.

Here is what I mean by the American church taking out the trash. You have been sidetracked into taking out the garbage if you are attacking prophets who predicted a Trump victory, and cannot let it go to win souls. You are taking out the garbage if you are attacking those who attack the prophets, if it has caused you to have stopped winning souls. You are taking out the trash if you attack Trump supporters continually, so that you cannot win souls. You are taking out the trash if you are speculating about conspiracy theories, and have nothing left over for lost souls. You are taking out the garbage if you are a prophet and are over-apologizing, instead of winning the lost.

God wants the American church to rebuild our message to America about Christ. What is slowing us down is all of the trash we keep carrying out.

Let me make some things very clear. I believe that the Democrat Party agenda is anti-Christian and destructive to America. I will keep writing and exposing that. I believe that the election was stolen and I am prepared to fight, in blogs and in pulpits, for that to be exposed. I believe in, and stand with Donald Trump’s destiny in our nation. I still expect a Trump miracle.

But I believe God is calling for us to counterbalance the fixation to use social media to analyze, divide, constantly speculate, debate, and attack, by being the miracles we are, in God’s hand. And yes, we should speak loudly against political evil, when God orders it, but not at the expense of winning the lost.

Anything that would keep us from seizing the greatest harvest in our lifetime is of Satan, no matter how compelling it seems.

To the everyday believer I say, relive and rewrite your testimony, because friends, family, neighbors and acquaintances are open to your witness. Believe me, the misery Democrats have created transcends politics. Even those who may disagree with you about Trump will be open to prayer and to your witness.

To pastors I say, reopen your church now!  Prepare Gospel sermons. Give altar calls. You will find that outsiders are returning to church. A vast blanket of conviction has settled on our weary nation.

To all I say this: Mario Murillo Ministries is about to launch the largest and deepest soul winning campaigns we have ever done—and I believe they will also be the greatest California has seen in decades.

Yes, there will always be trash that should be taken out. I will blog against false doctrine. I will blog against the lie that the church should stay out of politics. I will continue to tell the truth as God gives me strength. But something has come that I cannot neglect . Millions are ready to surrender to Jesus.

Matthew 9:36-38, “But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore, pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.””

I am convinced that God wants to lead us into multiple victories in our cities and local churches.

I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT PRAYING FOR THE ANOINTING TO SHAKE AMERICA.

I’d like to talk about prayer. People make two statements. One is, “I have a prayer life.” And there is what the saints of old said, the world changers: “I have a life of prayer.”

The person who has a prayer life designates a certain part of their busy day to go and pray. A person with a life of prayer, designates a portion of their busy time of prayer to do life…

When Paul said, “Pray without ceasing” I am certain he understood that we had to sleep at night,  that we had to have jobs. What he was talking about is that we must get to the point where life is interrupting our prayer time, and NOT that our prayer time is interrupting our life. Meaning, I am in an attitude and state of prayer, all the time.

No matter how much I can plan, sometimes a jet is late. Sometimes a flight will be cancelled, and I arrive at the church where I am to preach, only moments before I am supposed to preach. I can’t rely on an afternoon where I was alone with God. What I rely on is the fact that I never broke that communion at all. Just as Paul told Timothy, “Be instant in season and out of season.”

That is what needs to happen. We need to rediscover prayer to the point where, I think, “I don’t want to leave this room to go do life, because I’m not ready yet.

That’s what Martin Luther said. He said, “I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.” https://www.goodreads.com/author/quotes/29874.Martin_Luther

As much as I love my brothers and sisters in the Lord, and I certainly don’t want to sound like I am anti-pastor. I’m not. I think there are a handful of men and women that have been real traitors, but by in large, the pulpits in America are God-fearing, sacrificing men and women who love their people and would do anything for them.

Men and women who didn’t buy into the big screens, skinny jeans and fog machine version. And they paid a desperate price for it. Some of them have lost church members. But I have a word of encouragement for them: It is going to turn, because America’s appetite is turning. And the person who is in search of a good cup of coffee and a 12-minute sermon with valet parking, is a dinosaur.

They are going to be replaced by, “I don’t need coffee because I’m wide awake. I don’t care how long you preach, Pastor, because you are turning me from a confused person, into a soldier, fit for war. Pastor you are making me armed and dangerous, to fight for my community, and against the works of the devil.

The appetite is changing. So, I would tell every Pastor, hold on just a little longer. Don’t compromise the blood, the cross, the second coming of Christ. Don’t sacrifice the baptism in the Holy Spirit or signs, wonders and miracles done according to the Spirit of God. And most of all, preach holiness, “without which, no one will see God” (Hebrews 12:14).

God has placed a tremendous burden on me for this hour, to speak what He says, when I hear it.

Scientists discovered, some years ago, that the electricity that runs through your house is far more powerful than we ever imagined. An electric current, at a certain temperature, far below zero, begins to superconduct. This means that at room temperature there is a drag on electric current.

Now, if you use that as an analogy for the anointing: when a vessel of God dies to self, they remove the drag that is on the anointing. When we witness in history a woman like Kathryn Kuhlman, or a man like Oral Roberts, healing evangelists, we wonder why they operated on such a seemingly different plane of power than others. The secret is that they learned to superconduct, and not allow the anointing to be dragged by anything. They had no axe to grind in the pulpit, a personal viewpoint, a hidden agenda to make money, or to be famous. They simply wanted to please the Holy Spirit. And, in that obsession, they superconducted and the anointing flowed freely.

That is also my obsession. When I get in the tent and I begin to preach to lost souls, and I hear that a parent brought a child who is dying of leukemia, or that a man with children has had multiple heart attacks and maybe won’t live through the next few months, and, instead of relying solely on doctors, they come to my tent. That places an awesome responsibility on me. Not to believe that I can heal them, but to believe that I can get out of God’s way.

When I wrote the book, VESSELS OF FIRE AND GLORY, at a certain part of the book I felt a certain grief. I grieved over the Holy Spirit. Because the Bible says, “Do not quench the Spirit. Do not grieve the Spirit. And that word grieve means, don’t hurt Him. We have broken His heart. I began to see how He was insulted, marginalized, misrepresented and reduced to some New Age ‘force.’ This member of the Godhead, the Holy Spirit was wounded and hurt by our behavior. Because Jesus emphatically stated that it is to our advantage that I leave. It is for our sake I must go away, because otherwise the Helper cannot come. And we have rejected that help. We thought we knew how to preach better.

Billy Graham said that it amazed him how the preaching of the simple Gospel, and the truth of it, that the Spirit of God would drive it into the hearts of men everywhere he went. We have got to let the Holy Spirit take over again. He knows how to handle the virus. He knows how to handle the government. He knows what we ought to be saying.

When I began writing my blog, and writing this book, and speaking out, I said, “Lord, You can’t anoint me to do that! You can anoint me to do ministry, and He is, but why?” The answer was found in 1 Samuel 10:6, “Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you mightily, and you will show yourself to be a prophet with them; and you will be turned into another man. And when these signs meet you, do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.”

The kind of things I am saying in this hour would have been inappropriate, even ten years ago. But this is what the occasion demands. And that is why, Pastor! Let the anointing have its way. Begin to speak the message that may not be the line of your denomination. It may not be the tradition that you are used to. It is from the word of God, but it is a focus on exposing the evil of the swamp and the power of God to overcome that evil, and bring America back to God.

I want to pray for every Christian that loves America. Do you love this country – the home of the brave, the land of the free? The land of opportunity created and forged out of a wilderness by a miracle from God. We can’t lose it. We can’t lose this gift. And the stupidest reason ever to cripple our children with socialism, would be because they were too afraid that they couldn’t succeed without the government being their nursemaid.

God, I pray for an awakening. I pray an anointing for common house cats will turn back into lions. I pray that a fire will be ignited in the heart of everyone listening. Those who have been called by You to preach your Gospel in a pulpit, as a Pastor, help them to see their duty. Help them to understand that safety is in obedience and not in escape.

If we’re in rebellion against God, if God has told us to speak out, there will be nowhere to run and nowhere to hide, unless we obey the Lord. Jonah discovered that, when he was told to go to Nineveh, but refused, and went in the opposite direction. God, let us run toward the truth, and not away from it. Give us the courage to speak out in an hour when thieves are robbing us of our rights and our freedoms. Lord, let us be turned into a new vessel of God, and do what the occasion demands. In the Name of Jesus. Amen.

Breaking News

Do you know the difference between turning a row boat around and turning an aircraft carrier around. No that is not the opening line to a DAD joke. It is a deadly serious question. Because you see I am in the process of doing that very thing.
To add extra nights to a church meetings is the row boat. You simply announce it and make a few changes in your schedule. Try to guess what the aircraft carrier is?

At this hour, a cloud of something very special hangs or the Marysville and Yuba City areas. Quite simply people are getting born again here night and day. A radiating conviction and draw of the Holy Spirit is felt generally…that means it is not limited to one location or to one time.
A team went to the mall and the first three people they prayed for were instantly healed. Tonight at the tent an Episcopal priest opened in prayer. Testimonies of miraculous healing are coming to us from many directions.
What does it mean? It means an event far and away beyond a good meeting has overtaken us. It means we have no choice but to stay and bring in this historic harvest.

We are moving to the Colusa Casino Stadium

We have no choice but to turn  the aircraft carrier around.  We are taking down this tent and putting up a bigger one. Not only that, we are  moving to a new venue—a baseball stadium. You heard it right—a baseball stadium.
When I began praying for Living Proof California I asked for more than I could imagine. I prayed, “Jesus, the darkness is so deep and the need so vast that we need a surpassing demonstration of your power. Well here it is.

The amount of effort it will take to remove one tent, move to a new site and set up another is only a part of the logistics that we are facing. Now we have the whole town’s attention. Now bigger devils will oppose us. If ever we needed your prayers we need them now!
On the other hand it is time to rejoice for indeed an event—not of this earth has come to the Yuba and Sutter counties.  Rejoice child of God, this is going to be amazing.

The leftist media is now irrelevant to America.  Let me prove it to you.

The leftist media is irrelevant to America.  Let me prove it to you.  More than that, let me show you why it matters to you.  The proof is glaring, and the left can no longer run from it.  Here’s the proof:
CBS, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times, along with the not so subtle help of Youtube, Google, Facebook, Yahoo, every late night talk show host, backed Obama.   They were praising, pumping, and drooling.  They called anyone racist who didn’t support him. Yet, at this point in his presidency—he had a 43% approval rating among likely voters.  With all that firepower they simply could move the needle above 43%.
Now the wrath of that entire media cabal is being poured out 24 hours a day on Trump and his supporters. Yet, Trump’s approval is at least 5 to 6 points higher than Obama at the same point.  What does that mean?  It means they are irrelevant—and they have been for years.   They have a hardcore following but things are getting worse.
Reality came on election night.  Crestfallen and dismayed they wailed, cried, and sank horrified.  Not just because Trump won but because they were repudiated. They petulantly signed off telling us it was the end of the world.  That didn’t happen either.

On the other hand, Fox News continued to dominate ratings—commanding an audience that is larger than many leftist medias combined.  Most damaging to the left is the fact that conservative outlets tend to change minds. There’s a reason.
The left rants and spouts slogans but rarely makes a common sense case.  Conservatives ask disturbing questions. Here’s an admittedly oversimplified example: Left leaning broadcast: “You are racist!”  Conservative site: “Chicago has the strictest gun laws in America and a high murder rate. Why?”
But nothing is costing the left more than the Mueller investigation i.e. witch hunt.  The left’s towering hypocrisy is front and center for all to see.  They decry foreign influence on our election while they are fighting to let illegals vote.
Here are other signs that the left leaning media is running out of gas:
-Tonight Jimmy Kimmel said he will tone down the Trump bashing as he hosts the Academy Awards.
-The NFL, The Olympics and every other sport hijacked for the left is suffering ratings collapse.
-Even the L.A. Times, printed an article yesterday saying California should not be obstructing federal law when it comes to illegal immigration.
-Abortion is becoming abhorrent to many young people.  Planned Parenthood is panicking and dropping tens of millions of dollars to elect democrats.
What does this mean?  It means there is a growing audience for moral absolutes and a message of personal responsibility.
What does that mean to you?  It means that the church has preached a muted Gospel for no good reason.  It means, the idea that the public didn’t want a message of love and repentance was a myth.
It means that throughout history, the church has never looked worse than when she tried to reflect cultural thought.  And, she never looked better than when she shined the unfiltered light of the Gospel.  We just laid to rest living proof of this fact: Billy Graham.

It means most of all that there is great opening for us. We don’t know how long it will last so we better jump on it.  My final statement can make the devil pull a muscle in his head:
God is looking for people—maybe you.  He is not looking for better technology or methods.  He doesn’t pour out His Spirit on technology or methods…but on people.  People who will pray for fire, wisdom, courage and opportunity.  If God has heard of you, who cares if anyone else has?
Today, a voice filled with love, truth and the Holy Spirit will cut through this culture like a hot knife through butter.  The Gospel is not just relevant—it is timeless.  It can answer the evil of today and also what is to come. Amen.

A Fresh Baptism of the Holy Spirit

In this message we hear about power for this dark time–a fresh fire of the Holy Spirit so desperately needed by God’s people.

What do we do with the dire predictions of David Wilkerson?

By Mario Murillo

Charisma magazine dug up an old video of David Wilkerson on the old PTL show with Jim Bakker. They were startled by the pinpoint accuracy if David’s predictions.

Recently a well-known conservative blog found another dire prediction from David Wilkerson and posted this: A respected pastor, best-selling author and founder of a major ministry to teens predicts an imminent “earth-shattering calamity” centered in New York City that will spread to major urban areas across the country and around the world – part of what he sees as a judgment from God.

David Wilkerson, author of “The Cross and the Switchblade,” a book about his ministry to troubled New York street kids that was later made into a movie starring Pat Boone, tells readers of his blog this weekend that he is “compelled by the Holy Spirit to send out an urgent message” about his prediction.

“An earth-shattering calamity is about to happen,” he writes. “It is going to be so frightening; we are all going to tremble – even the godliest among us.”

Wilkerson’s vision is of fires raging through New York City.

“It will engulf the whole megaplex, including areas of New Jersey and Connecticut. Major cities all across America will experience riots and blazing fires – such as we saw in Watts, Los Angeles, years ago,” he explains. “There will be riots and fires in cities worldwide. There will be looting – including Times Square, New York City. What we are experiencing now is not a recession, not even a depression. We are under God’s wrath. In Psalm 11 it is written, “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?

“God is judging the raging sins of America and the nations,” claims Wilkerson. “He is destroying the secular foundations.”  Wilkerson urges everyone to stockpile a 30-day supply of food and other necessities to deal with the catastrophe he foresees.

“I do not know when these things will come to pass, but I know it is not far off,” Wilkerson concluded in his message. “I have unburdened my soul to you. Do with the message as you choose.”

A past vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention is hoping believers pay attention to Wilkerson’s message.

“I have known David Wilkerson for more than 25 years as well as many of his friends and associates,” said Pastor Wiley Drake. “He is a godly man and I believe he is listening to God. I encourage each Christian to read and heed what God is saying through our brother.”

Why have the prophetic warnings of David Wilkerson come to the forefront?   More to the point…what should we do with dire predictions?

Each believer is equipped with discernment.  All of us have access to wisdom.  I know that to reject David’s words simply because they are terrifying is a disaster in and of itself.  You should reject any voice that says you do not need to prepare for possible calamity.

I also know that God has promised a fire wall of protection around His remnant.  Therefore to live in fear or to go into hiding would be an unqualified tragedy.  Therefore you should reject every voice that denies the possibility of revival and restoration.

Even David Wilkerson said, “”God’s last-day church …will be even greater than that [the first-century church,] … mightier, stronger, and even GREATER revelation of Jesus. A greater unction from the Spirit than ever, GREATER EVEN THAN PENTECOST….As I see it, the gospel of Jesus Christ has not been fully preached in this generation!”

Here are three things you must realize:

1. America is being judged for ingratitude. When you take inventory of the sins of America this one gets overlooked but it is the one that ignited judgment.

foolishness

Look at these verses: Romans 2: 4 Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? 5 But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God,

Psalm 78 12 “Marvelous things He did in the sight of their fathers, In the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan. 13 He divided the sea and caused them to pass through; And He made the waters stand up like a heap. 14 In the daytime also He led them with the cloud, And all the night with a light of fire. 15 He split the rocks in the wilderness, And gave them drink in abundance like the depths. 16 He also brought streams out of the rock, And caused waters to run down like rivers. 17 But they sinned even more against Him.”

Verse 21 sums it up: “Therefore the Lord heard this and was furious; So a fire was kindled against Jacob, And anger also came up against Israel…”

How can you deny that America is being judged right now?  For seven years the White House has blasphemously shaken its fist at God daring Him to act.  In that time, we have not repented or even acknowledged our guilt.  Consider all that God has done for America…look at how we repaid Him.

It is utter foolishness for us not to prepare for the violent convulsions that come to any nation that burns the candle of their life for themselves and then blows the smoke in God’s face.

 2. Ask yourself: What is wrong with being prepared? If New York City does not burn I will be at the front of the line rejoicing. However, what is wrong with praying over the words of a true man of God.  What is wrong with checking our hearts to see if we are participating in things that have brought the wrath of God to America?  We have already seen shortages and breakdowns in our culture.  Some food stored is simple wisdom not gloom and doom.

3. You must drench yourself in prayer and ministry. Disasters and convulsions are coming…some are already here. Therefore your best move is to be actively engaged in supernatural warfare to win the lost and to heal the sick.  The glory of revival blunts the pain of persecution!  Pressing into intimacy with Jesus destroys fear and anxiety.

can

Seeking a strong anointing and passion to be a source of life to others will cause calamity to go around you.  Psalm 91: 5 “You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, 6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it will not come nigh unto you.”

Note: The verses talk about terror at night—arrows by day—pestilence that walks in darkness.  It does not say they won’t happen…it says they can go around you if you dwell in God and choose to be one of His anointed ones.

All of Jehovah’s children can minister, heal the sick, cast out devils and even raise the dead.  Chuck the notion that there are only elite vessels that have access to ministry.

Even David Wilkerson said the church would not limp to heaven in the last days: “God’s last-day church …will be even greater than that [the first-century church,] … mightier, stronger, and even GREATER revelation of Jesus. A greater unction from the Spirit than ever, GREATER EVEN THAN PENTECOST….As I see it, the gospel of Jesus Christ has not been fully preached in this generation!”

Billy Graham at his best

America liked us better back when we told the truth.

By Mario Murillo

This is written with deep love for and loyalty to the local church. There is no desire to take a cheap shot at anyone or to divide the church.  I have to write this because love does not lie or withhold needed correction.

America has abandoned God, Christian values, Israel and is racing toward disaster.  Evil festers when good men do nothing.  Denying it will not change it or make it go away.  Its effect on you and those you love will not be stopped by delusional teachings of spiritual entitlement.

So how do we turn the American Church around?  That is the question I posed in a previous post.  Now I continue to answer that burning question by saying this:  in order to turn the church around we must face the fact that America liked us better back when we told the truth.

Here is an illustration from the Bible.  Jonah ran from his calling.  This brought a great storm.  The captain had a gut feeling that nature was angry about something. They found Jonah sleeping and asked him who are you?   When he admitted he was a runaway prophet.   Jonah 1:10 tells us, “Then the men were exceedingly afraid, and said to him, “Why have you done this?” For the men knew that he fled from the presence of the Lord because he had told them.”

Americans feel a psychic resentment toward the church.  I say psychic because it is intuitive and subconscious.  They really cannot explain why they are angry with us. They may claim it is our politics, or falsely accuse us of racism or even rightly point out our flaws but this present dislike of the church stems from something much deeper.  They are asking us “why have you done this?”

When the outside world observes our illustrated electronic happy talks they get a gut feeling that we are hiding something.   They also suspect that our nation’s storm is partly because preachers are not confronting sin anymore.  As one non-Christian pundit put it “if there was more hell in the pulpit there would be less hell in the ghetto.”

At this point in our national disaster a mega church can be like having the best party going on the deck of the Titanic.  You are having a great time but you will not save America from the frigid angry sea.

Here is the real rub…if numbers matter so much then why are we ignoring the most important statistic? Overall church attendance in America has fallen dramatically.

They liked us better when we were not trying to be liked.  There was a day when men of God stood in pulpits as free men.  They were free of any need to be liked or successful.  A. W. Tozer said, “These free men will serve God and mankind from motives too high to be understood by the rank and file of religious retainers who today shuttle in and out of the sanctuary.  They will make no decisions out of fear, take no course out of a desire to please, accept no service for financial considerations, perform no religious act out of mere custom; nor will they allow themselves to be influenced by the love of publicity or the desire for reputation.”

We are impressed by churches that can draw 15,000 people.  But that is nothing compared to back in the day when America liked us better…a whole lot better.

Look at the picture of Billy Graham in the Los Angeles Coliseum in 1963.  120,000 are inside, and another 30,000, could not get in.  On the scoreboard it says “I am the Way the Truth and the Life.  No man comes unto the Father but my Me.” -John 14:6.   Not one person was offered a door prize.   No one was in the dark about the purpose of the meeting.  Billy stood there and simply told them that they had to come to Christ or be lost for all eternity.

Look at this picture below of Billy preaching in Times Square in New York City.  We cannot even imagine anything like this happening today.

times square

When Billy prayed for sermons he focused on hearing what the Holy Spirit wanted him to say.  He wanted a message that God could use and not words that would dazzle the audience.  Billy died to his private opinions in the pulpit.  He got out of the way so that the Holy Spirit could work on the audience.

We bought into the lie that if we made nice and took out the scary parts of our message we would be liked but we ended up more despised than ever.  Proverbs 28: 23 He who rebukes a man will find more favor afterward than he who flatters with the tongue.

Dr. Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Church Dallas said Jesus did confront his culture with truth — and he ended up being crucified because of it.”  “I believe it’s time for pastors to say, you know, I don’t care about controversy, I don’t care whether I’m going to lose church members, I don’t care about building a big church. I’m going to stand for truth regardless of what happens.”

We are only days away from the Warrior’s Workshop in Houston

Something big is coming to Houston:  If you live anywhere near Houston today is the last day to register! Give me 3 hours and you will be revolutionized.  Why not you?  Become the weapon our nation needs now.

By Mario Murillo

 

Millions of Christians are done with watered-down Christianity.   To them, it has been a terrible waste of time and money.  They say that modifying the Gospel “not to offend” totally backfired.   By omitting the “offensive” parts they also removed its power to transform society and contributed to the present downfall of our nation.

They are intensely frustrated.   They see large churches filled with people who are systematically weakened—too weak to ever impact American culture.  They say we are losing the battle for America’s soul for stupid reasons.  They remember the legacy of true Christianity.  They know its power to change nations.

We have the best message humanity has ever heard—and the best book ever written.   We have the all-powerful Holy Spirit sent to aid us.   We have access to power, strategy and wisdom.  All of this and more was supposed to direct our operations.

They ask disturbing questions.  Why have we cast it aside?  Why have we accepted a cheap substitute?  Why would we rather let America die than admit our desperate need?

Warriors workshop tease

But they also see their own need.  A fast growing number of Jesus followers want training and power.  They want the skills of their spiritual ancestors.  They want the Jesus within them to overtake the culture around them.  They want to convert lost souls to Christ.  They want to see true signs and wonders.  They want to see victory in their everyday life.

God forged a new weapon at Mario Murillo Ministries—a weapon that answers the monumental, unspoken frustration in the heart of millions of believers.  It will yank believers out of the Christian Witness Protection Program and turn them into lions.

We call it the Warrior’s Workshop.  A workshop that makes a bold claim:  With just 3 skills we’ll revolutionize America.  You will get these skills at my Warrior’s workshop…a workshop that took me 40 years to build.

The best way I can describe it is this:  The object of military training is not to prepare men for war but to make them long for it.   The same is true of this workshop—it makes you yearn to reach out—heal the sick—and walk in total victory.

Give me just 3 hours and you will be revolutionized.   Why not you? You can become the effective weapon our nation needs now.  See you there!
