HAVE YOU TOLD YOUR YOUNG DAUGHTER HOW DEMOCRATS WANT TO ERASE WOMEN?

Why does anyone want biological males competing against women? How is that equality? How can anyone say this will not destroy women’s sports? What will it look like when a biological male is the reigning champion in every category of sports for women?

And finally, how will you explain to your young daughter, who dreams of being a champion, that she will have to compete with a man?

The Left will tell you that this kind of a total takeover of women’s sports is impossible, because of the statistical rarity of transgender women. But they are wrong and they know it.

All of a sudden, 25% of our youth “expect to change their gender identity at least once during their lifetime.” https://hbr.org/2020/04/companies-cant-ignore-shifting-gender-norms

Why such a spike? Because, I believe the Left are not trying to protect transgender women—they are trying to recruit them.

If the Equality Act becomes the law of the land, it will make it criminal discrimination to believe that biology determines gender. They want our children to believe gender is based on feelings. Once that is codified, leftist teachers will prey on the feelings of our children.

They are also trying to make being transgender cool—not just equal. By making transgender cool, they add another devastating weapon: peer pressure. How many of our children are acting out gender dysphoria just to win peer approval in school and on social media?

The real target is womanhood and the consequence will be to erase women altogether. 

But these disturbing facts are not the real message of this blog. It is something just as disturbing—something you and I have some control over, and we need to see the real disaster here.

The other day I saw this headline, “57 black pastors warn Democrat Senators not to pass the Equality Act.” How is that even a headline? There should have been 10,000 black pastors warning the Senate. There should have been at least 200,000 American pastors of all colors warning the Senate.

Only 57 Black Pastors warning the Senate is not a headline. It is an indictment. It would be like this headline: “City burns down. 12 firemen show up.”

We need to stop looking at the leftist media, the Grammys, or Democrats for the true symptom of our national sickness. The real symptom is the silence in the pulpit. The disheartening, disgusting, inexcusable moral paralysis that delays leaders from forming the unity and purpose we need to stop these wicked leaders—that is the crime of our century.

And the Equality Act is only a small fragment of what we should be outraged at. A vast and vicious lie has covered America like locusts, and most sermons are filled with fluff. Your messages are not hitting anywhere near that lie. There was a day when, perhaps, your lukewarm messages could be considered harmless, even mildly amusing. But today they are an unspeakable betrayal.

Charles Finney said, “Brethren, our preaching will bear its legitimate fruits.

If immorality prevails in the land, the fault is ours in a great degree.

If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it.

If the public press lacks moral discrimination, the pulpit is responsible for it.

If the church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it.

If the world loses its interest in religion, the pulpit is responsible for it.

If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it.

If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it. Let us not ignore this fact, my dear brethren; but let us lay it to heart, and be thoroughly awake to our responsibility in respect to the morals of this nation.”

The leftists of America have jumped the fence and invaded the domain of the First Amendment. They have demanded that you surrender your faith, your freedom—and God help you—YOUR PEOPLE! 

And why is there no reaction?

For the sake of everything decent, why can’t the men and women of God in America realize that the general alarm is sounding? It demands nothing less than an overwhelming and uncompromising repudiation of this presidency! It demands a nationwide rejection of the vile curriculum in our schools. It demands a revolt so deep and complete that the media will fear us. A revolt so widespread that there will simply be too many of us for them to stop.

What level of horror will it take to rouse you to your duty? Perhaps that horror will be when your own people rise on their own. The millions of members who have faithfully and patiently waited for you to lead them.

And what if a Christian populist movement rises and finally decides they can’t wait for you anymore? What if they all stampede out your door, and go to other churches—churches that are seeking God for the revival and a divine counteroffensive against the political devils who seek to destroy both America and the Church?

Do not laugh. I am seeing it everywhere. Preachers are renting halls, schools, and some are meeting in open fields. Crowds are forming in places no one ever expected. Fire is coming from the mouths of average Christians on the street. The people of the Lord are becoming willing volunteers in the day of God’s power!

How do you tell your young daughter that Democrats want to erase women? How do you assure her that you are doing all you can to protect her? You say, “Darling, this is America. And I will, with everything that is within me, and by the mighty weapons of God, do whatever it takes to destroy this evil lie!”

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.””

OVERCOMING EVIL WITH EVIL: WHY “WOKE” WILL DIE A SICK JOKE.

As irresistible as it may seem now—as mighty and unstoppable as it looks now—I want you to remember that I told you this. The Woke movement will go down in American history as the stupidest, most embarrassing abandonment of common sense, ever.

Historians will scratch their heads. They will ask themselves how on earth anyone could have taken such cringe-worthy idiocy seriously. The tombstone of Wokeness will read, “WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?”

So, what is it exactly about Woke that makes it so banal, insipid and intent on self-destructing? What makes it so vulnerable to collapse? Why will this soufflé not rise twice? The answer is found in an admonition from the Bible. 1 Peter 3:9 says, “Do not overcome evil with evil.”

Wokeness will implode under the weight of its own moronic self, because it is using evil to overcome evil.

The all-wise Woke ones believe they are taking us from bad to good, but, because what they are doing is itself evil, they can only take us from bad to worse. A lot worse!

Take their solution to sexual equality. It is evil. The Woke are not working for LGBTQ equality. They are working for domination. If you do not use the sanctioned pronouns—if you do not deny science and call people by whatever gender they “self-identify” with, you will be cancelled.

The Woke don’t want inclusion. They want exclusion. And they want it in its worst form. They don’t want diversity. They want a standard mind, a standard opinion and an unquestioning allegiance to a vast contradiction.

But it will fail because Biden’s new Equality Act will not bring equality. It will instead destroy equality, because it comes from an evil premise. A premise of brutality and religious persecution.

The Left brutally erases any opinion that is not Woke. But they also want to erase the person. They do not want dissenters to make a living. They want private information put out there on the street for the purpose of harassing, threatening and attacking. And, they want to hit houses when wives and children are alone.

You can count on Wokeness to make anything it touches much worse than it was before. Ah yes, racism is the shining example of their braindead philosophy.

Somewhere Satan is laughing because of how close he came to losing his favorite form of hatred: Racism. America was well on its way to amazing progress, when someone decided to get minorities to stop working on their future and, instead, regurgitate the past.

Let me explain how Woke works. At the top of the pile are people who only want power and money. But they also need camouflage. What better way to hide greed and a lust for power than to ‘virtue-signal.’ You know, look like a do-gooder and talk in ethereal terms about climate, race, gender, and well, you know the list.

Now, your job as a Woke liberal is to deceive the young who are prone to idealism. Identify villains and make it cool and enlightened to hate. Only they will tell you it is not hate—it is all for the greater good.

Back to Satan. He laughed because he almost lost racism until he mutated the virus of racism so that now racism looks like anti-racism. Wokeness says, hating white people and assuming all of them are arrogant is not racism. Forcing them all to be reprogrammed is not racial oppression. Universities who ban white students from clubs and classes—well, that can’t be racism.  Coca Cola foolishly instructed its workforce to be racist by making them think they were becoming unracist. Coke went Woke, and may go broke.

Magically, the civil rights movement ‘woke’ up at war with Martin Luther King. He hoped for the day when content of character would mean more than skin color.  Wokeness believes white people have no character. That is why hell is rejoicing. Racism survived by changing form!

Satan is wrong. He is always wrong. The Woke joke is going to fall in on itself in a heap of sputtering rubble. Because it is a lie—a heinous contradiction—and it is evil and hateful at heart.

Already the mask is coming off of this absurd experiment. Yes, right now, people are fooled, but I don’t believe it will last. As the old saying goes, “You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.” 

Wokeness…be on notice: your fifteen minutes of fame is almost over.

But there is one last reason Wokeness has an expiration date: it hates the Gospel of Christ. It is in the Gospel that we find what Wokeness can never deliver. Racial equality is in Christ. Natural love and the key to functional families is in Christ. Economic justice is in Christ. The Gospel remains the greatest news mankind has ever heard. Wokeness, on the other hand, is an embarrassing counterfeit.

TAKING OUT THE TRASH

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.

Don’t look for another Jesus Movement. Look for something better.

The Jesus Movement was glorious. I know, because I was there. I saw the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in many parts of California. I preached at the festivals. I saw thousands saved on campuses, including the radical University of California at Berkeley.

But, I am not looking for another Jesus Movement. I am looking for something better. I believe that those who try to recreate something God did before will always be disappointed.  Here are the reasons why:

God is fiercely original.  Psalm 97:1 says, “Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! Sing to the Lord, all the earth.” Have you noticed how every revival has its own unique sound?  One of the very first byproducts of a revival is a new song.

Our God is a creator of infinite variety, a creator who never stops creating. He wants originality. He never runs out of surprises. Did you ever notice that every miracle in the Bible is unique? That is why Satan can never fully prepare for the approach of revival.   Even after the devil has checked all the doors, tried all the windows, and scanned every horizon, he is still going to be caught completely unprepared when it strikes.

We should thank God for past awakenings, but we must also understand that the next outpouring will look like nothing we have ever seen before. Isaiah 43:18, “Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it?”

Don’t try to organize revival into existence.God will do it in such a way that God alone can take  credit for it.  Today I see a dangerous trend—even among leaders that I highly respect—in which many prophetic and revival movements are trying to organize a ‘New Jesus Movement.’  They are pooling their talent, wealth and influence, thinking they can make a global miracle happen.

I am begging everyone who thinks this is a good idea: please consider history. In 1907, the news of the revival in Wales reached America. Christian businessmen and famous church leaders met to recreate the same revival. They assumed Americans deserved at least as good a revival as Wales.  They raised huge sums of money. They pooled their celebrity and influence, assuming God and the church would follow suit. It died with a whimper, and failed spectacularly, because God refused to be manipulated.

Overlooked by all of these famous Christians was a one-eyed black brother praying in a rented livery stable in downtown Los Angeles. Far from the luxury and prestige of Christian power brokers, in the dust and dinginess of the Azusa Street Mission, the authentic volcano of God-born revival erupted.

Today’s famous revivalists need to reexamine their trust in their own might and power—because “it is not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord!” (Zech. 4:6)

The best and safest move for those who desire true revival today is humility, brokenness and repentance. Don’t try to tell the Body of Christ who the superheroes of revival are going to be. Don’t think for one moment that great influence or celebrity is the catalyst to revival. They never have been and they never will be.

Book sales, notoriety and fame, are of no importance in the strategy of heaven. We might think we are able to predict who will be the vessels of Fire and Glory who will usher in the next move of God—but we can also be dead wrong.

Who knows if, at this very moment, somewhere out there, an obscure preacher in a dilapidated church is sobbing tears of desperation over his tiny congregation? What if ground zero for awakening is an inconspicuous wooden chapel, and not a gleaming church campus?   What if God’s plan is to work through them to bring about something so powerfully explosive on a worldwide scale, that it will make the Jesus Movement look like a polite touch by comparison?

Remember, the greatest heavenly invasion in all history began in a manger, just outside of a small town named Bethlehem. The next one began in a little upper room in Jerusalem. Wherever the next wave of God is going to begin, prepare to be stunned…

A man of God and his wife, who are dear friends of mine, were placed in an awkward but all too familiar situation recently. They were at a reception with other spiritual leaders when hard liquor was offered to them. They politely refused and slowly excused themselves, trying hard to mask their shock.

That is not the end of it. A “prophet” later confronted them and told them that they were being legalistic for not drinking. He went so far as to say that unless they got in line with the new “revelation of freedom,” their church would not grow.

 This is no longer a case of just saying drinking is okay. Now they are saying you should be drinking if you want to be in the flow. That “flow” is part of a scheme for rapid church growth that compromises many other areas of Christian life—and programs believers to backslide. The Bible predicted this deception…

Isaiah 59:15 says, “So truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice.” Some pastors today are attacking church members who seek to be holy…accusing them of a having a religious spirit.

 Have we really come to the point where believers are making themselves a target by pursuing holiness?  The answer is a loud, “YES!” Many churches in America have become mere factories that are churning out converts who are preprogrammed to backslide. And don’t fool yourself, this church growth machine is found even in spirit-filled churches…even in so-called ‘revival’ churches.

 Holiness is now rejected and called a ‘religious spirit.’ Satan rejoices at this, because it has created the greatest display of false success in the history of the church. Many churches are now conveyor belts that attract large numbers of people only to have them rapidly fall off at the end of the belt.

In fact, the ones who fall off may be the fortunate ones, since there is a chance that they will crash and burn and eventually come to their senses in true repentance. But, woe to those who are backslidden and don’t even realize it, because they have been taught the lie that they can never backslide!

 

 The growth we celebrate today is a grand illusion that hides the greatest turnover ratio ever.

Doesn’t this explain why so many believers have been deceived by these false teachings, and have been reclaimed by the enemy? Doesn’t this explain why the church has no authority to push back against the flood of evil in our nation? How can we field an army of warriors when the church is setting them up to fail? Forgive me, but I am about to get passionate!

How can it be that the very vessels chosen of God to equip the saints, have instead conspired to create a system that rewards carnality and shames holiness?

Listen to most sermons today. They give the impression that the church has exhausted herself trying to serve God, or that she has overdone sacrifice—that now she needs vast portions of comfort food.  That’s the way it sounds when ministers keep telling them to relax, and quit trying so hard, because, ‘Daddy is so pleased with them.’

 Even after there’s proof that a congregation has become a listless, flabby, biblically illiterate club of moody consumers—preachers will still heap on them one more message of pampered entitlement.  Forgive me…but it’s kind of like handing a diabetic a case of Snickers bars.

Sundays are too often a celebration of how much God lets you get away with. Pastors are giving sermons full of soothing guarantees that confuse God’s love with His approval.

1 John 5:4 says “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.”

There are two things to take away from this promise. The first is that a major goal of the child of God is to overcome the world. That goal is largely missing in modern preaching—preaching that sees the world as a kind of ‘friend’ and not as a mortal enemy. (15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. I John 2:15).  Secondly, it shows us the desperately urgent place of faith—faith that overcomes! That is also missing.

 We program failure when it is not clear at the moment of conversion that we must die to our own will, and Christ must become Lord of our existence. That is an ultimatum that cannot be postponed. Without it, you are producing new converts who will have no power to overcome evil. They will have no hope of growing in faith. You are robbing them of the joy of the Lord!

Repentance, spiritual warfare, and the authority of the believer, are all subjects that would protect the child of God and help them stand against the enemy. But these preachers never get around to these truths because they are afraid it will stop the influx of people. Think of that!

Gently suggest the church could go deeper—call for more prayer meetings—voice concern about inappropriately dressed women—tell them you don’t want to party with them, and they will scream, “YOU HAVE A RELIGIOUS SPIRIT!”

What was once normal discipleship is now ‘legalism.’  Anything that dampens their festivities is judgmental. What have we done?  We have unleashed a counterfeit liberty.  These are not the features of a Spirit-led people.  These are the clear symptoms of people with sick souls deceived and careening toward disaster.

 But the final nail in the coffin of this deception is this: It is utterly unnecessary to compromise to get a crowd. Jesus never had trouble getting a crowd. That is why He focused on changing the crowd. Go ahead and boast about growth, but you must do it at the expense of truth—the truth that while churches grow, the nation is dying—and the very people tasked by God to save America are having zero impact!

The greatest gift God can send a church is a holy child of God whose heart is for revival.  A holy child who longs for the fire, glory, and power of God to electrify the church.  Make them your enemy and you have also made an enemy out of God. Woe unto you, if you have ever called holiness a religious spirit.   God bless you, if you love holiness and understand what a treasure it is!  1 Timothy 6: 6 “Now, godliness with contentment is great gain.”

 Thank God that at this critical hour the Holy Spirit is separating to Himself a core of Christians. These are pastors and regular believers who are praying to go deeper into God. They are busy saying to each other, “This sideshow is not God! There is so much more! No way can Satan win if we take our stand on the authority of the cross!”

 He is imbuing them with boldness, wisdom, signs and wonders, and most of all…a blazing passion for holiness!

 “Pursue peace with all people, and pursue holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.” – Hebrews 12:14 

 

 

WILL YOU?

Will you put away your toys and take up the mighty weapons of God?

Future generations of Christians—if there will be any—will be profoundly baffled by us.  They will ask, “Why?  Why did we let trivial and foolish matters eat up so much of our time?  They will agonize over our shallowness.  They will cringe at the trivial things that were our amusements.

But above all, they will be horrified that we played all these foolish games against the backdrop of madness and perversion all around us.  In a time of raging wickedness—while we still had the chance—why didn’t we rise in the power of the Holy Spirit?  Why didn’t we deliver an effective challenge to the lies, addictions, and brainwashing of our time?

Not everyone can bear what I am about to say.  The fair-weather Christian and the make-believer will shrink before the high calling I am about to describe.  But those who heed this call, and awaken to do their duty, deserve the love and thanks of every true child of God in America.

Paul said, “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” -1 Corinthians 13:11

It is childish to linger in stupefying religious echo chambers.  It is childish to mingle with delicate, debilitated, and depleted believers.  It is childish to hide behind the towering lie that our God is unable to build mighty warriors.

I am looking you right in the eye, with a long and steady gaze.  I am mustering all the conviction in my soul.  I am begging you…PUT AWAY YOUR TOYS AND TAKE UP THE MIGHTY WEAPONS OF GOD!

Tyranny, like Hell, will not loosen its grip easily.  But you have this great comfort—the greater the conflict the more glorious the final victory.  You will be granted the honor and thrill of front line participation in the greatest thing God has ever done in the earth.

It is time to pay the price.  Things gotten cheaply are lightly esteemed.  The gold you seek is worth every drop of sweat—every mournful tear—every sacrifice.  (see: Rev. 3:18)

Satan trembles at your advance to this higher calling.  Evil quakes at your deliverance from compromise and cowardice.  Hell asks, “Will they actually take up their rightful weapons and do us great harm?”   Let your soul roar back an eternal, “YES!”

What can we do about the demons that are strangling America?  Can we dismantle their ramparts?  They have brought bitter division, mass addiction, and total deception.  Can we stop them?  Not only can we, it is our sworn duty to tear them down!

The Bible says “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God…” 2 Corinthians 10:4,5

If we can’t tear down strongholds, then God is guilty of child abuse of the highest order, for commanding us to do something that cannot be done.  If our weapons are not mighty, He is guilty of letting Paul awaken a deep hope that can never be fulfilled.  The whole point of 2 Corinthians 10: 4 and 5 was to provoke the church to destroy the strongholds of Satan by taking up the mighty weapons of God.

The Bible says, “cast down every high thing.”  The traitorous preaching and teaching of today says there is very little we can do.  So many preachers today remind us, “it’s all in God’s hands.” That may seem a comforting thought, but it is wrong. It is thinly disguised fatalism—and it creates passivity.  Everywhere you look in the Bible, the Word of God is against passivity and advocates action: “fight the good fight of faith…” “Endure hardness as a good soldier…” “Resist the devil…” “Take the sword of the Spirit…”

God has chosen to act in answer to prayer.  He waits until His people rise to take their rightful place in the arena of battle.  Young David saw the stalemate.  No one challenged Goliath.  David couldn’t stand it.  He offered himself to God.

God is looking for someone like that today—someone who can’t live with evil, who can’t stomach the perversion, and is enraged to see God dishonored.  He is looking for someone He can use to turn the tide of America.

If there is one question this blog asks, it is this:  Are you so filled with holy rage that you are willing to lay down every impediment to provide God with an opportunity to vindicate His name before this blasphemous generation?  WILLL YOU PUT AWAY YOUR TOYS?

Here is your great promise: When God sees you take up His mighty weapons of warfare—in the Name of Jesus—and attempt the impossible—God Himself will muster all the resources of heaven to bring you total victory!

Please pray for the tent crusade in Stockton CA and if you know anyone near there get them to the tent!

How we will win souls in 2019

We have regrouped and reloaded, and we are ready to win the lost, heal the sick, and set the captive free. The tent, chairs, lights generators, stage and sound are all packed up and ready to go. It will only be days now before we announce the places and dates where we will be invading the darkness in 2019.
Satan demonstrated how much he fears our soul winning. He attacked us every way he could in 2018. He tried to stop us dead in our tracks. But all he did was set himself up for a holy backlash! This only deepened our resolve to win souls in record numbers!
Many people who hate God are cheering on the anger dividing our nation. They also want to manipulate every word of the Gospel of Christ to make it sound bigoted, so then they can ban it. Jesus said this would happen.
Luke 21:12 “But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and rulers for My name’s sake. 13 But it will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony.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 we pray together as a couple, we have found that our agreement has great power. (See Matthew 18:19-20) Through prayer, we made the choice not to be frightened by the end times and the screaming threats of radicals.  We see that the very same verses that warn of persecution also contain powerful promises.

The first promise is, “But it will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony.” Everything Satan is trying to do to America will be forced into an opportunity to testify—it will open doors for people to hear the life-giving message of Jesus.
Did you know this promise happened to Paul? When he was imprisoned, he found a big surprise. His arrest actually advanced the Gospel. He said, “But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel.” -Philippians 1:12
The Message translation says it this way: “I want to report to you, friends, that my imprisonment here has had the opposite of its intended effect. Instead of being squelched, the Message has actually prospered.
That is what we believe about 2019! The devil’s attacks on America will have the opposite effect that God haters expect.
But the second promise excites us even more. You see, the youth culture is complicated and toxic. They’ve been told so many lies that they are triggered by the church’s efforts to reach them. But God is greater!
He has promised us powerful rhema words that will pierce hearts; and He has promised many miracles in the tent. This explosive combination will do what Jesus promised: it will leave a skeptical audience unable to resist and vulnerable to surrendering to Christ.
The ultimate source of our excitement is that God has promised us it is not too late for America. That promise drives us like no other. It is why we are working tirelessly to get ready for a supernatural harvest.
It is true that much evil is spreading but God fiercely loves America and He will fight for her!  More than ever we ask for your prayers! We need to be bold, wise and full of the love of Jesus. Stay tuned for more detailed and exciting news in the coming days! We love you!

BREAKING NEWS ABOUT RENO NEVADA

Today, Mechelle and I prayed with the mayor of Reno.  Cesar Minera who Pastors Word of Life in Reno organized a prayer caravan that encircled the city and culminated at city hall.  We were proud to be a part of  THE TRUCKEE MEADOWS PRAYER DAY.  This was not an event that we put on.  This event happens every year and we were honored to join hearts with the Body of Christ in Reno.

However, as you read this, local churches, outreach ministries, Inner City Action from Stockton, along with Mario Murillo Ministries, are combing the Reno/Sparks Nevada region.   We are in the homeless camps—not just with food and clothing but a powerful witness.  We are inviting the entire community.  You can already see our posters in store windows. We are handing out tens of thousands of cards.

Are the windows of heaven opening over Reno and Sparks Nevada?   A growing number of local leaders sense it.  There’s something special about this moment.  There are powerful indicators:  The region was bathed in prayer today—we saw unprecedented support and unity at our leader’s meeting August 4th—the city has given us a prime site in the heart of downtown Reno. 

Now let me talk to you about that prime site: It’s 700 Sutro Street. Our tent will be visible from interstate 80.  That means anyone who drives through Reno will see our tent.  Our tent will cover most of the lot, so the city has given us permission to use large parking lots that surround the site. FAVOR!

Teams of intercessors will be walking this sacred ground between now and the start of our Living Proof Crusade.  They will ask for signs and wonders to explode on the people.  They will ask that cars driving past will feel the tractor beam of God’s love, pull off the interstate and come in the tent.  Please agree with us for mighty miracles!

 

Here’s the most urgent part of my letter:  It is a fact of war that when armies are stymied, a breakthrough anywhere can turn the tide of the war.  Just the report of a decisive victory anywhere can ignite the morale of an entire army.

This means that even if you don’t live anywhere near Reno you need to pray fervently for this outreach.  It does not matter in which city the American Awakening starts.  Lord, just let it start!

Now I am talking to anyone who lives near the Reno/Sparks region.  Christians have evangelized for thousands of years.  In that time, knowledge and technology has exploded.  Yet, two forces remain omnipotent: prayer and the personal invitation.

I know, because I have won souls for over 50 years, starting at U.C. Berkeley and in the Bay Area.  Nothing will ever replace the power of prayer, and word of mouth.  I can’t stress this enough: pray and bring someone to the tent!

Mark 6: 55 says, “they ran through that whole surrounding region and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was.” That last phrase says it all!

Under the tent, there will be wonderful music, powerful messages and surprises.  But, the greatest reason to bring people is because we know Jesus will be there.

All seats are free.  Remember, we’ll start at 6 PM on Sunday and at 7 PM Monday-Friday.  Let’s us pray for those you are bringing for healing or deliverance.  Call us at 775 238 3473.   I can’t wait to see you at the tent and I can’t wait to tell our partners across America what is happening under the tent!  -Mario Murillo

P.S.  If you want to volunteer for any of the many opportunities to help us with this outreach please call us at 775 238 3473 or click here to contact us  mariomurillo.org

 

NO ONE CAN ESCAPE THE URGENCY OF REVIVAL IN CALIFORNIA

Dear Christian, the sooner you realize the West Coast has declared spiritual war on you and those you love; the sooner you can take action.  I know that many Christians have never learned spiritual warfare.  I also know the language of warfare is scarce and  unwelcome in many churches.

But now that we are losing our freedoms—now that the vile behavior of the back alley is on main street—now that families see the culture absorbing the faith of their children—believers may be open to finding authority over Satan.  But first, we need to call it war…war on the church.

When politicians ram through legislation like California Assembly Bill 2943 without informing the public—when they attack those with honest questions—when politicians say their new laws protect small groups when in fact they rip up the rights of others—what else can you call it?

To read more about this bill click here  https://wp.me/p1vrzp-5u2

What else can we call it when Senators manipulate language to vilify anyone who disagrees?  What should we call it when the real goal is not equality, justice, or truth, but an attempt to silence the church?  You call it war.

It is obvious why believers in California should be awake to the damage of Sacramento…but every believer in America should be alert to this West Coast tidal wave.  Every believer is in this fight.  We cannot escape the urgency of revival in California.

 

 

Way too many ministers taught easy believism and made Christians apathetic when they needed to take action.   Too many preachers today remind us, “it’s all in God’s hands.” While that is a comforting truth it is not the one we need right now.  That’s been an excuse to be passive and missing in action.

But everywhere you look in the Bible it is against passivity and advocates action: “fight the good fight of faith…” “Endure hardness as a good soldier…” “Resist the devil…” “Take the sword of the Spirit…”

Ephesians 6: 10-13 says “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.   For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

It is urgent that we pray in a way we have never prayed before.  Stand between heaven and earth as a true intercessor.  Invoke the Name above all Names to get to the very Throne of God with your petition.  Do what Moses did when he raised the rod of Aaron over the battle. When you pray, pray violently, pray exactingly, detailing the damage you want done and where you want it done. By the Spirit, speak directly to evil powers. Call them out and cast them down.  Cut their power over California.

It is time to preach with more boldness and miracles than ever before.  At the first attempt to silence the church Peter prayed this prayer:  Acts 4:29,30 says, “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your Holy Servant Jesus.”

 

We cannot escape the urgency of revival in California.  California in its current condition can pull the nation down with it—but never forget Azusa Street, Billy Graham, and The Jesus Movement all had their start in California and then overflowed to America and the rest of the world.

Here is the great promise: When God sees someone take up the mighty weapons of God—in the Name of Jesus—and attempt the impossible—God will muster all of the resources of heaven to bring that someone total victory.

P.S.  For those of you who live in California and want to contact your state senator.    Use this link to find your state Senator.  http://senate.ca.gov/senators

When you email or call your Senator be firm but polite. Tell them you will be voting in the next election and that you will be campaigning for politicians who reflect your values.
