THE LIFE AND DEATH QUESTION

I remember when a wise man of God told me, “Answer the question that wasn’t asked.” Example: when Jesus told His disciples that Jerusalem would be utterly destroyed and not one stone would be left upon another, the disciples reacted by asking Him when this would happen. Instead, of answering that question, He answered the question they should have asked, “Take heed that you be not deceived.” The question they should have asked was, “What is the most important thing we should to be ready?”

What question should pastors and the American church be asking right now about the coronavirus?

700 preachers recently participated in a conference-call with Trump and Pence, yet none of them asked the one question they should have asked.

The twelve disciples wanted to know the date of the destruction of Jerusalem, so they could make arrangements. That was their deception. And most pastors just want to know the date when they can reopen their church. That is our deception.

So, what was the question these preachers should have asked the President?

What is that question? That question is, “Why haven’t we repented?”

When it comes to repentance, the American church’s message is as garbled and discombobulated as a Joe Biden speech.

Shame on those who dare to invoke 2 Chronicles 7:14, while blatantly violating the conditions of that sacred text!

“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

God says, “My people who are called by My name.” But we are ashamed to be called by His name! Modern preaching made us ashamed of being called by His Name! Christian pastors and singers waffled in T.V. interviews about homosexuality, abortion, the existence of hell, and Jesus being the only way to God.  Denying Biblical truth is even worse that denying His name. Psalm 138:2 says “…For You have magnified Your word above all Your Name.”

Have we humbled ourselves? Many are giddy, many are making light of this pandemic, and others glibly assure us that ‘we will all get through this.’ It is only because the deaths that have occurred have not happened to anyone you personally know and love that you are able to view it from a distance and remain aloof. Because the level of intrusion and financial devastation hasn’t quite struck you personally, you can still act like a spectator.

We as believers are not sober. We are not praying for mercy. We are praying prayers that expose our immaturity, ignorance, and arrogance.

Have we turned from our wicked ways? Talk about arrogance!  Nothing is more arrogant than the way preachers hurdled right over the part about ‘turning from our wicked ways,’ and went straight to asking God to ‘heal our land.’

Social media overflows with singers and preachers who offer advice, devotions, and prophecies that downplay, and even belittle, repentance.

Even when we called a big-time fast, the focus was about stopping the virus, not repenting as a nation. We should be fasting with sorrow over the way ‘church incorporated’ has grieved the Holy Spirit. How we abolished soul-winning. How we created low-impact/high-maintenance converts who drain the church’s resources and produce nothing, instead of training warrior-disciples.

Keeping people calm is important. Inspiring people to make the best of this is important. But national repentance is life and death. Anyone who is guaranteeing you that it can’t get worse for America is deluded. Jesus told the crippled man He healed at the Pool of Bethesda in John 5:14b, “Behold, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you.”

Funny, but those who need it the least are the ones who are interceding and repenting the most. They are letting the searchlight of God give them truth in the inward parts. For them there is a new day. Pastors who are in this company of saints will see glory rise upon their ministry. Protection, blessing and healing is reserved for this remnant. I can’t say it any more simply or clearly than Isaiah.

“Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them, for they shall eat the fruit of their deeds. Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with them, for what their hands have done shall be done to them.”    (Isaiah 3:10-11)

JUST TO STOP HIS REELECTION

Jesus compared the generation of men who hated Him, to children playing in the streets:

“But to what shall I liken this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to their companions, and saying:

‘We played the flute for you, but you did not dance;
We mourned to you, but you did not lament.’

“For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’ The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Behold, a glutton and a wine-drinker, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’” (Matthew 11:16-20)

Jesus accused them of manipulating facts, because their attitude was: ‘We will tell you what is real. If you don’t eat or drink you have a demon. If you do, you are a glutton and a drunk. We are always right and you are always wrong.’

When the nation should be rallying together, setting aside politics, and backing the President, the hate- filled Left can’t help itself.  They want us to dance when they say dance and to mourn when they say mourn. Their knee-jerk reaction is to say Trump is wrong, no matter what he does. Perhaps there is no greater oxymoronic phrase than ‘leftist-logic’, but here goes.

The ‘Leftist logic’ of Comey and Mueller says: Russia manipulated an election with only 150 thousand dollars worth of Facebook ads, while Mike Bloomberg couldn’t do it with spending just under one billion dollars!

Now, for some even crazier ‘leftist logic’: According to Christina Wilkie, who writes for CNBC, “In just over a month, three pillars underpinning (Trump’s) argument for reelection have all collapsed”: https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/19/coronavirus-crisis-trumps-argument-for-reelection-is-collapsing.html

Her first ‘pillar’:

“President Trump’s re-election campaign was designed under the premise that the economy would be strong through November, but that’s not true anymore.” -CW

Wow. When I read that, I thought, “How much of the loony-left-Kool-Aid must one drink in order to make such a statement, let alone publish it?” Wilkie apparently has a crystal ball, and can see into the future, all the way to November, and knows what the economy will be like then!

The Left never gives Trump credit for the economy. When it is doing great, they believe he has nothing to do with it. But if it goes bad—for any reason, even the most insane reason—it is his fault. They believe America will punish Trump for what the coronavirus alone did, and forget everything else he has done.

Sorry, Christina! But no fair-minded person can possibly blame Trump for coronavirus damage to the economy.  That is just plain nuts. There is a case to be made for blaming a former President, but we will get to that later. The worst part is what Wilkie is saying about Americans. She is degrading Americans by saying they are so unfair and ignorant that they would change their mind about Trump because coronavirus hit our economy.  If an asteroid hit the earth, Christina would blame Trump for it.

Second ‘pillar’:

“Trump also planned to make socialism a central focus of his attacks. But without Bernie Sanders to run against, this argument becomes a lot less potent.” – CW

This jaw-dropping claim makes it difficult to know where to begin.

At least, Bernie is able to frame and finish a sentence. And unlike Joe Biden, Bernie does not say things like, “150 million Americans died from gun violence since 2009” or, “We must re-elect Trump” or, “When I am elected in 2 years” or scream, “You’re full of s***!”

Christina is wrong. Socialism is still in play. Biden has already veered left and will take up the socialist mantra to try and win Bernie voters. In a debate with Bernie Sanders, Trump would have had to combat a true socialist and make the case for capitalism.  With Biden, all Trump has to do is let Joe talk about it.

There is no doubt that Biden is going to be the nominee, because when the Democrat clown car careened out of control, he was the only one who didn’t fly out. Not only that, but it doesn’t look like veering Left will work for Biden, because ‘Berners’ have said they are so angry, they would rather vote for Trump than Biden. We can only hope…

And thirdly, according to Christina:

“Trump campaigned on “draining the swamp” of big government. Now he wants Americans to trust in big government to fight coronavirus and save the economy.” –CW

Listen to that! If Trump didn’t bail out hard-working Americans, the Left would use it against him in the election. Now they want to use it against him that he did help them! Do you see how that works?

And finally, there’s the idea that Trump didn’t act on the coronavirus crisis soon enough. Really? The fact is that Trump started on the prevention of this virus when he was running for office in 2016. He told us China, not Russia, was the greatest threat. He told us that we were too dependent on China. He wanted to slam the door on their influence over us.

Here’s the Left again: “You didn’t act soon enough to stop the virus. And stop picking on China.” Again, do you see how that works?  They still want it both ways

 

Then they called Trump a racist for calling it the ‘Chinese Virus.’ How hypocritical is it for the Left to defend the most racist nation on earth by accusing Trump of being racist when he makes a totally scientific observation: The virus came from China. Many of the leftist news outlets were calling it the ‘China Virus’ months ago, and it was apparently ok then, and wasn’t racist—until Donald Trump started calling it that… See how it works?

It was Obama who defended China and expanded our reliance on China. The Obama administration is why we are at the mercy of China for our pharmaceutical and medical supplies. Want to know why we are short on tests and masks? Hello!

Biden is defending China right now!  China! The nation that got so mad at us for stating the obvious fact that this pandemic started there, that they threatened to kill Americans by cutting off medicine to us.

While America is trying to come together to fight a common enemy, the Left hates Trump too much to try and help him. Please, help him, by draining the swamp in November! Take back the House, make conservatives a strong majority in the Senate, turn blue States red, and re-elect the President that God gave us for just such a time as this!

 

NINE LITTLE WORDS

California’s Governor Gavin Newsom just tonight predicted that 56% of all Californians will be infected by the coronavirus. He just projected a humanitarian disaster beyond imagination, in the last place on earth you would ever expect it. But, if you don’t believe him or the leftist media, I don’t blame you: they have told so very many lies.

But we cannot deny our lives have been disrupted to an extreme that we have not experienced since the Second World War.

Suddenly, we have been plunged into a world that we had previously only seen in disaster movies. All the professional sports that most Americans worship are gone. California’s children will stay home probably until the fall. Las Vegas has been shut down.  Sin City’s credo was, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” but now it’s, “Nothing is happening here.”

We have no idea what will ultimately happen to our economy. We are huddled in our homes trying to figure out the best way to ride this out—hoping the doomsday voices are wrong.

What bothers me the most is the behavior of so-called Christians on social media. I have never seen so much self-promotion. Videos infest the internet with “words from God.” Some say this will turn out to be nothing. Others tell us it is the end. They gargle with gunpowder and then shoot their mouths off. They dispense silliness in the name of God. All they really crave is attention. You should document their predictions and hold them accountable for false prophecy when this is all over.

There is only one reason I am writing this and there is only one group I am writing it to. I am writing this to you because God has done an epic miracle in my soul, and this is a message for the remnant of God who have been hidden until this very moment. They are in this crisis by design. They are in for an amazing surprise.

This is not for the carnal Christian. If that’s you, you still need one more lap around reality before you will have a heart for the Glory that God will reveal in His core believers. So here goes…a message to God’s hidden people who are groping for answers for what to do during this quarantine and pandemic.

Like you, I had to deal with the sudden and shocking change brought about by the coronavirus quarantine. There are many who are going through things far worse than I am. But what I went through was still pretty bad.

A week ago, I felt as if I had lost everything. The coronavirus scare closed down our tent crusades. For me and for our team it is a devastating loss. I am not exaggerating: I truly collapsed before God from sheer sorrow.

Out of it, God led me to nine words that David spoke. He said nine words that tell the prophetic core exactly what to do in this crisis. I present to you what every pastor, leader, business person, parent, and young person who is under a heavy call of God needs to do right now.

You will find the answer in the 30th chapter of 1 Samuel. When David lost everything and his men were ready to stone him, he did something remarkable. The Bible says, “He encouraged himself in the Lord.” That is amazing enough, but it’s what he did next that’s even more amazing.

To get anything out of these words, you must first grasp the utter despair that David felt before he spoke them. Remember, David was a man who had been anointed and over whom prophecy had been spoken that he would be King, but in an instant, he became as poor as a slave.

Here’s the picture: 1 Samuel 30:3 “So David and his men came to the city, and there it was, burned with fire; and their wives, their sons, and their daughters had been taken captive. Then David and the people who were with him lifted up their voices and wept, until they had no more power to weep.” Filled with despair, David’s own men were about to kill him.

The nine words I am going to show you were the greatest psalm David ever spoke. In this ‘accidental psalm,’ David glorified God like he had never glorified God before.

Here are the nine words: “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?”

Don’t let their simplicity fool you! David glorified God in what he did not say, as much as in what he did say. Even though he felt rage and grief he did not insult God’s character. He did not rail against his circumstances. David did not sin with his mouth. There was no, “Why did you let this happen to me?” Or, “How can I trust you when you can’t even protect my family?”

David was practicing what he preached in Psalm 19:9, “The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.”

From David’s example, I knew better than to waste valuable time rehearsing the disastrous effects of the coronavirus on our ministry. I needed something else. And so do you.

David did not torture himself by dwelling on why it had gotten so bad. He knew the goodness, mercy and wisdom of God. He didn’t even ask for comfort. Think of that!

No, he knew he needed to ask for something else.  Can you guess what that is? He needed direction. DIRECTION! And that, my friend, is what you need most.

Take Mario Murillo Ministries for an example. We are in deep prayer about what to do next. My concern is not the tent crusades. When the lock down is lifted we will be ready. We will move with all the force of the pent up zeal and fire in our bones!

No, my real concern is what God would have us do in the meantime. Somehow, I believe God is about to reveal to us an amazing method and an idea that will launch us to harvest souls in a way we never imagined.

Yes, in the natural, this is a terrifying situation. Cities have shut down. Businesses are being destroyed, and people are dying.  Still, nothing could be worse than wringing our hands and wallowing in vain imaginations about why this happened, and what may happen next.

The Holy Spirit is waiting to give us marching orders. He wants to give us the wisdom necessary to not only stay safe, but to exploit this crisis for the Glory of God.

God answered David and gave him a promise: “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all” (1 Samuel 30:8).

That was all David needed to launch out and go attack the enemy. He didn’t know how it would happen but he did not let his men slow him down. He ordered them to mount up and ride! When his men saw David on his horse, it reminded them of all the past victories that came from following David into battle.

David sat high and looked at them with a look that spoke volumes, it said, in essence, “Do you want to kill me or do you want to get your wives and kids back?” They followed David, rode after the enemy, miraculously found them, and got back everything and more besides.

You need to talk to your soul and ask yourself, “Do you want to sit here paralyzed by fear or do you want to get up and follow God into total restoration of everything the devil has stolen?”

As far as Mario Murillo Ministries is concerned we will win souls! No matter what. I solemnly promise you that the enemy will pay. This crisis will not lessen our soul winning—in the end it will increase it!

This is what Paul said in Philippians 1:12-14, “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.”

We all need to follow David’s example to get two things: direction and a promise. You will learn how to suppress fear and confusion. You will have no doubt that God is with you and your loved ones, to protect and provide.

You will realize that you have been secretly undergoing preparation for this very moment. Expect to hear from Jesus! Expect to know exactly what to do and how to do it.

This virus is going to pass. But the damage we will live with if we give in to fear and hesitation will not go away. You will look back on this for the rest of your life and thank God you did not give in to fear or disobey the deep work of the Holy Spirit

All it took in David’s case was nine simple words, and an impossible situation was turned into an epic victory: and the body of Christ in America is also going to experience another epic victory! Hallelujah!

THE THREE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS

Pray with intense focus: Pray, knowing that God is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. But what should we be seeking in prayer today? There are 3 things that have been burning in my heart to ask for. Here they are in the order in which I believe we need to pray for them.

1. The local church. Why would I mention this first? This current hysteria threatens to hit the local church hard. That is not good on more levels than you may realize. Satan wants to weaken churches in America for several important reasons.

Pray against the temptation to develop the habit of staying home from church after this is over.

 Pray that believers will continue to financially support their church now, even if they are compelled to stay home.

Pray that state governments will not use this as an excuse to persecute the church.  Few things are more dangerous right now than the state drifting from justifiable health guidelines into police brutality. Only a fool doesn’t know about the growing outright hostility toward Christians in the Blue states. Their mouths are watering at the prospect of shutting down churches. They are looking for any excuse, and we must rebuke all demonic power and ask God to cause the fire of revival to fall on churches everywhere. The disruption of churches in America is from Satan. Pure and simple.

Worshiping together is a key to Christianity. Matthew 18:19-20, “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”

Remember: We are the only movement in history where the founder attends every meeting.

If there is a chance for you to worship with others and you opt instead for worshiping alone or as the hippies among us love to say, “I will commune with nature.” You may find some blessing, but you will not receive the full measure that the power of agreement provides.

Hebrews 10: 25 urges us: “not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day (of the Lord) approaching.” House meetings are being touted as a substitute for corporate worship. And this not a problem if the motives are pure. Often, however, these meetings are led by leaders who are engaging in self-promotion. They are doing it because they did not get the recognition they felt they deserved in a church setting.  This is a lot like socialism: it sounds good, but it has never worked because the true motives are wrong.

I believe that something good can come out of this. Maybe we will remember the joy and satisfaction of simple church…before we got all slick and professional.

We must also pray fervently for the persecuted church around the world.

2. That America will repent. Americans who pray today had better repent. Every mouth that prays today must begin by asking for forgiveness. Any kind of asking that comes before repentance will offend God’s holiness. We are a nation of great wickedness. We have thumbed our nose at God. We have murdered the innocents and destroyed marriage. We celebrate things that God abhors.

Daniel was not guilty of the sins of Israel and yet he repented for them. In Daniel 9:4-5, he wrote, “And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession, and said, “O Lord, great and awesome God, Who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments,  we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments.”

The one thing we do not want to see is this: 2 Chronicles 28:22, “Now in the time of his distress King Ahaz became increasingly unfaithful to the Lord.”  If America smugly assumes she can ask and stay unfaithful to the Lord—or worse, become even more unfaithful—that would spell certain doom.

3. Pray that God will show mercy and curse this virus. Do not ask with pride, spouting your, “rights and privileges.” Humbly declare, “We are not deserving of a national miracle, but we humbly beg for Your mercy.” In this prayer, we must remember that all the nations of the world far less able to fight this pandemic.

I am a firm believer in miracles of healing and in the power of God to drive back disease. But I have never seen miracles break out when the voices calling upon God were charged with pride and entitlement.

Our Father and our God, have mercy on us this day as we turn from our wicked ways. We do not ask for comfort and ease, we ask for holy desires and the resolve to fight on in order to share the Gospel with the world. We forsake all those things that have become our idols. We condemn perverse and unnatural desires that have aroused Your anger against us. We pray in the name that is above all names—the Name of Jesus!

               

 

WHAT I AM GOING TO DO NOW

No one who knows me well, has asked that question. They know better than that. They know what I am going to do. I’ve even had friends call from great distances and say, “I know what you’re going to do!” More on that in a moment. I want to get to something else.

What happened in Chico was Satan. Paul wrote, “Therefore we wanted to come to you—even I, Paul, time and again—but Satan hindered us.” (1 Thessalonians 2:18)

When people make up rules on the spot, you know that is Satan. When you are told you can’t have a gathering, but there is a car race going on in the background, that is Satan. When not a single case of Coronavirus is recorded within 200 miles, and you are accused of being irresponsible, that is Satan. When lukewarm churches oppose soul winning and miracles, then you know it is Satan.

The good people of Chico were robbed—not by a virus but by hate and fear. They were robbed by leftists prematurely spreading a panic. In my opinion, they were targeting Christians. Even now, Casinos are still open, while at the same time, churches are ordered to close.  As if Casinos have some magical protection that churches don’t.

Satan wants to stop all of our crusades. Satan knew the momentum that would be generated by this crusade. Here is what really bites: Not one person would have gotten sick from the virus, but a lot of people would have been healed of serious diseases. I believe that cancers would have been healed, along with many other truly life threatening sicknesses.

But more importantly, the worst sickness of all would have been healed—sin sick souls! I just got off the phone with one of our board members. He was telling me how a friend he has been inviting to church for many years, but who would never go, had agreed to come to the Tent in Chico. Only God knows how many other souls would have come.

I had to calm down a fire-breathing army of soul winners who were all set to return to Chico today and hit the streets. At this point, they would have been unduly endangered, trying to pray for people. They would also be in direct defiance of the government’s orders. No, the devil may have won this battle.  BUT NEVER AGAIN!

Do you still want to ask what I am going to do now?   We were born in the fire of student riots. We waded through tear gas and protesters.  During the A.I.D.S. epidemic we never backed down. Ten more epidemics have come and gone since then. What are we going to do?

We will not relent. We will reload. As soon as the ban lifts we will win more souls than ever. We are going to expand our outreach to the Highway 99 Corridor. Every aspect of our outreach will intensify.

I know the Coronavirus is a real crisis. I agree that getting America to lay low will help blunt the epidemic. I am not in disagreement with the call to limit this virus. I do not oppose the safeguards that are recommended now by health professionals.

Here’s what I do oppose. I oppose the Left which is creating a parallel crisis of fear and panic. They seek to divide and blame and inflame mindless passions. But, what else is new?

My other issue is this: closing down churches while leaving other places where people gather wide open does not look like an effort to stop a virus. It looks like an effort to stop the church. And what will California do after this virus passes? Will they let up on the church or have they created a pretext to stop the church any time and for any reason they want?

I remember how, during a major drought, they raised the price of water with a solemn promise that when the drought ended prices would return to normal. Instead, right when the drought subsided they invented one of the most insidious surcharges I’ve ever heard of. It’s called an elevation charge. They charge people for how high the water had to flow to get to them—even when there was zero evidence that it cost them anything extra to deliver the water.

This is an hour when discernment is crucial. The church must abide by rules that protect the public and help stop the pandemic. But the church must also be aware when being shut down is not happening because of a virus, rather, it is happening because the Left wants to shut down churches and stop the Gospel.

But they will fail.

“So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. The Redeemer will come to Zion, and to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,” says the Lord. (Is. 59:19-20)

 

The CaliforniaVirus

A caravan of trucks is making its way toward Chico, California. They are carrying everything needed for a full blown Tent crusade. Vessels of God from many parts of America and other nations are on a pilgrimage to Chico. This holy core of workers say Jesus told them to join Him on the frontlines of a hurting city. They took the flights others told them not to take. They told their bosses that winning the lost and healing the sick takes priority.

A friend is someone who walks in, when everyone else walks out. This holy core of workers is the best friend this or any city could ever have. We would never tell the police to skip their duty because of a virus. We would never tell a nurse or doctor to hide at home. We would never tell any first responder to take the day off because they might encounter risk. How can we say any less to a soldier of the Cross? How can we overrule them? If they say they have a mandate from God, who are you, or who am I, to tell them differently? All I ever say is, “Make sure it’s God, then act on it!”

That doesn’t mean we do not take the Coronavirus seriously, we do! We will not act recklessly, or break any law.  We are in compliance with state guidelines, and we will obey any civil authority when it comes to this crusade. However, we see another virus that is just as deadly.

The virus we are fighting in Chico and all along the Highway 99 corridor, is the CaliforniaVirus. It is deadly. Morally bankrupt intellectualism is why millions writhe in meaningless lives in this State. Meanwhile, their leaders in Sacramento heap more misery on them and then force them to pay for it. The grand experiment of California values has created America’s greatest human tragedy.

In Silicon Valley, workers who gave their lives for a company are being replaced by cheaper labor, and to add insult to injury, they are forced to train the people who are stealing their jobs. In Hollywood, vacuous and ignorant celebrities preach to us about the sacrifices we must make, while they live in obscene luxury.

Giddiness is a symptom of the CaliforniaVirus. It’s how a parent can grin and feel enlightened as a transgender man in a sexy sequined dress reads a story to their 5 year old. It’s how teachers can scold a first grader for calling a friend Johnny who has changed their name to Sally. This Virus redefines child abuse.

This infection of the mind and soul has caused them to come up with ideas like free needles for addicts, and AWOL methods of handling the homeless. (https://sites.google.com/a/coyotes.usd.edu/awolatusd/social-issues/homelessness)

It’s how San Francisco, the most beautiful city in America, has been transformed into a slum, covered in human and medical waste. The fever of CaliforniaVirus is how educators have ignored their children’s need to learn how to read and write, and instead, have indoctrinated them with leftist ideology and books about sexual positions. It is why more and more of our children are turning to suicide.

The Virus says that if a fetus makes it to full-term and is born alive, the mother can still have it killed. The Virus says we should leave our border open so the other virus can get in.”

Its final symptoms are denial and smugness. So what if crime is off the charts? So what if addiction is pandemic? So what if our kids won’t know how to make a living? Who cares if innocent citizens are murdered by those who have illegally invaded our nation? The Virus says, ‘Lift the restrictions on criminals, create a revolving door in our prisons and at the same time, remove the right of law-abiding citizens to protect themselves.’

The CaliforniaVirus will destroy more lives than any other virus. It drains joy, decency, and sanity from its victims. Let’s admit what this virus is…it is pure despair-inducing evil.

So: Why are we here in Chico?

Because the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the cure for the CaliforniaVirus!

It restores dignity. It breaks the chains of addiction. It infuses a lost heart with unstoppable hope. It cleanses the past, empowers the present, and guarantees the future!

Jesus will be in the Tent curing the CaliforniaVirus. Our message is clear, and yes, we will be hated for its clarity.

Nothing can say it better than Acts 2:40, “(Peter) went on in this vein for a long time, urging them over and over, “Get out while you can; get out of this sick and stupid culture!” (The Message)

We are saying to the masses that are lying crushed beneath the weight of California’s moral turpitude—

COME TO JESUS AND BE SAVED AND HEALED!

How and why you pray for California

You may be sitting on the beach in Florida. You may be prepping your property for winter in Maine. You may be fighting traffic in Chicago. The furthest thing from your mind is to pray for California.

Nevertheless, California looms over you and those you love like the sword of Damocles. The seething progressives who run this state zealously seek to overthrow the United States and the Judeo-Christian ethic. Doubt this to your own peril.

And make no mistake about their power to overthrow our nation. Modern times have never seen anything like California. It is the fifth largest economy in the world.  It has only one political party. It is dominated by a handful of billionaires who bitterly despise your values. They are demonically unified. They have a plan to force their agenda on you, and the means to carry it out.

Don’t believe the blather about California wanting to secede from the United States. It’s quite the opposite. They want to become the pattern for all the other United States. Those in power plan to export their brand of socialism, green planet, climate change theory, anti-family, gender confused, progressive social justice, anti-Christian, pro-abortion ideology to the other 49 states.  They want to be the engine that drives our way of life. They don’t want to go off and do their own thing. They want to barge into your life and dictate every iota of your existence.

The trifecta of technology, entertainment, and education guarantees that California will have an outsized influence on your life—like it or not. What they have done so far is nothing compared to what they want to do, and how they plan to do it. That is why we need to pray!

Praying for California to have a revival and praying against the California satanic agenda is praying for your freedom and your children’s future.

Now let’s talk about how to pray for California. Let me tell you the story of how I learned to pray.

I was saved on October 4th 1964 in a small Free Methodist Church located at 3811 Mission St, San Francisco. The pastor, George Norsworthy began a 30 day fast the night I was born again. He discerned something.

God used him to forge the way I pray. The way he prayed made me want to pray the same way. I am certain that the way Jesus prayed overwhelmed the disciples until they blurted out, “Teach us to pray.” His answer is what we know as the Lord’s Prayer.

But two truths have guided my prayer life like no others.  The first one is found in Mark 11:24, “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”

The second one is in Luke 18:1, “Now Jesus was telling the disciples a parable to make the point that at all times they ought to pray and not give up and lose heart.”

The essence of prayer is this: You must believe absolutely that you will get what you ask, and you must keep asking no matter what happens. Everything else is just a superficial attempt. Combine these two forces in prayer and you will see miracles happen.

So here is what we are going to do. We are going to believe absolutely and irrevocably for a miracle in California, and we are never going to stop until that miracle comes. That is what I am doing, so thank you in advance for praying with me!  I know that if we all pray intensely for California, God will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.

Remember: “The Lord does not delay and is not slow about what He promises…but He is extraordinarily patient toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn and repent.” (2 Peter 3:9)

P.S. I want to thank you for praying for these 2 events:
