ONLY THIS TIME

An astounding door for moral awakening has blown open in California, but I need your help. Did you know that over a million people now know what God is doing under the roof of our tent?

Thousands are asking what we are going to do next. The answer is, we are coming back. Only this time, we are returning with a vengeance! Here is how we got to this point:

In 2019, we began in raw obedience. When Frank Saldana, Jim Carpenter, and I began this mission we had to trust God for everything. Satan opposed us in ways I have never seen before. We were in direct contact with hell.  Again and again our tent tour seemed doomed. And, again and again, God came through!  And, in such a manner that no one but God received the glory.

We went to Paradise, California when there was virtually nothing left there after the fire. We set up our tent in a city where everyone had fled for their lives. No one can explain, even to this day, how God filled the tent with so many people and how so many were miraculously transformed. Marysville was total warfare.  But it not only turned around, it was so fruitful we had to add extra nights at a baseball stadium. In Stockton, the opposition was even more intense. Yet again, the power of God prevailed.

However, it was not until we got to Dinuba that we saw the true potential for the tent. Then our final crusade in Hanford brought record-breaking crowds, miracles, and salvations.

Do you want to know why Satan fought us so hard?  It is because we discovered there is a vast harvest in California. That is something the enemy, the leftist media, and the God-haters never wanted us to know. Satan overplayed his hand. The people are sick to death of the agenda of the Left that is destroying the economy, brainwashing their children, unleashing crime and addiction, and persecuting Christians.

Every night, we suffered a critical shortage of counselors to pray with young and old who wanted Jesus. The number of healings also overwhelmed us.  Matthew 9:37, Then (Jesus) said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

Along with the vast harvest, we saw another result: churches came alive to win souls!

Yes, it’s true, in 2019 we powered through incredible obstacles. We reached thousands. Now we are in a position to reach tens of thousands. And get this: we have already locked-in 5 California cities for mass healing crusades.  They are: Chico, Roseville, Modesto, Fresno, and Bakersfield.

Having sites locked-in this early, gives us a much greater edge than we had last year.  Much of 2019 was consumed battling for permits and last minute expenses.

Only this time, we are coming with a much bigger army.  This time, a battle-tested core will return to lead new recruits. This wonderful battalion of Spirit-filled warriors is waiting for us to replenish them for invasion.

On top of that, we will multiply our outreach to the poor and homeless by holding special daytime rallies in the tent. The homeless won’t come at night, for fear of losing their place and their belongings. We will bring them to the tent for morning outreaches, where they will experience the power and love of God, as well as receiving resources.

And that’s not all. We are purchasing a second tent, just for children. While their parents are getting saved in the main tent, the children will receive special ministry in their own tent.

We missed having many people come to the tent in 2019, because they don’t go to church or watch Christian media.  But this time, we will invest in new social media weapons designed to get their attention. This includes redesigning our website to better serve visitors. We are investing in new equipment that will let us instantly show short live-streams from the tent, plus interviews with those who have been saved and healed.

I am convinced that a harvest, beyond anything we have seen, is waiting. This open door demands a massive investment. We simply don’t know how long this door will stay open—but there is one thing we do know for sure:

Unless a powerful miracle occurs, within one short year the America you have always known and loved will be gone forever. Who is leading the charge on impeachment and every other destructive movement in America?  California.  California’s God-hating elites have the power and the money to wipe out all of our freedoms.

Here are some final facts about California:

  • Right now, those who are the best equipped to win the hearts of young Californians are wealthy leftist politicians, atheists, media moguls, singers, and actors.  They have the biggest stage, the loudest microphones, and the largest bankroll.
  • They all have this in common: They despise Jesus Christ, the Bible, America, Donald Trump, Israel, and you.
  • Those on the Left are pawns of Satan. They want a world without the traditional family or any restraints on abortion, drugs, pornography, or pedophiles. Here’s the unvarnished truth: the current leftist regime now in power in California sees no future for Christianity in that state. They have made it their mission to drive true believers out of what they consider to be “their” state.
  • Their ideology thrives on policies that divide and destroy.  They see chaos as a good thing, because it destroys the old order to make way for the new order.  Prolonged economic depression, brainwashing, riots, and even cop killings are permissible for the “greater good.” That explains the deliberate destruction of California’s prosperity and civil order.

We saw many miracles in 2019, but the dire facts about California and America’s future demand a bold and drastic outreach. That is why I am asking you to sow into a miracle for America by helping us invade California.

No one needs to remind you how angry, perverted and chaotic our nation has become. Whatever we are going to do, we must do it now.

We have the tent, the chairs, the army, and the permits.  Your gift will mean more now than ever: because it will have an immediate impact and will multiply the size of the harvest.  Your love gift will go directly to soul winning.

I have asked you for help before, only this time, I am even more certain that our nation’s future is at stake. Perhaps you meant to give more this year but were not able to. The government allows us to credit any gift you give toward your 2019 taxes, so long as it is postmarked on or before December 31st.

I know you love souls. I know you see what it means to reach California. I also know you have been generous before. However, times have changed and we are facing a threat we never thought we would face. You are the best partners a ministry ever had, and you have always come through.  But it is because we must treat this open door as our last chance, I need you to dig a little deeper.

Thank you for giving toward this California miracle. To give use this link  https://mariomurillo.org/donate/

Thank you, and God bless you, and God bless America!

THEY CAME TO PRAY

They came to pray—that’s the real story.  And it’s a way bigger story than you know.

They came even though no headline worship team or celebrity speaker was advertised. They came to pray. Prayer alone was the attraction. They did not gather to be dazzled by a ‘now word.’ They did not come for exotic manifestations. They did not come to get or give a ritual apology for wrongs done in past history. They came to pray. They came to ask for a miracle in California.

In short, they went against the grain of almost everything commonly used to bring in crowds of Christians in California.

After a short worship time and admonition on prayer, I welcomed leaders to come and pray. They were our next miracle.

They also only came to pray. They did not do this because we promised they could announce their churches or events. They didn’t want to preach or showcase their gifts. They did not do this for attention. They left their egos completely out of this.

They were transformed just walking to the microphone. A spirit of prayer came over them as one after another poured out their heart to God. Each one added more fuel to the fire.

Several confessed later that they felt they were being consumed by a holy fire and a passion for an outpouring from God. Many later said that they would never be the same.

Because I know my wife so well, I can tell with certainty what happened to her. When she grabbed the mike, I saw the anointing jolt her. The prayer and prophecy that exploded out of her was amazing and it rocked the stadium.

Meanwhile, another important miracle was unfolding in the crowd. They didn’t need to be entertained, they were lost in intercession. Between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. they prayed. They were no longer from different denominations or streams. Not one person was behaving in such a way as to draw attention to themselves. It was a holy chorus of prayer.

Everyone felt the urgency for a miracle in California. They fully grasped the fact that we are running out of time.  At the same time they felt an unshakable confidence that our cries were heard, and they knew that something undeniable is going to break forth in California—the state that some said was lost and hopeless.  Just as when Elijah was discouraged and convinced that he was the only one who was left to worship Jehovah, God spoke these words to him, “I have reserved for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed their knees to Baal.”

As I said before—the big story here is that they came to pray. Sadly, many will not see the importance of this breakthrough. Too much of ‘California Christian Culture’ is incapable of grasping the significance of people just wanting to pray. Too many organizations are enslaved by the programs that keep them afloat.

There is a contamination among too many here that, unless perks are offered, will not show up for an event. We need to find our way back to our first love. We need long and fervent sessions of prayer. There is a remnant that will read this and truly be excited, and who will be aware that this is a big story.

It would be wonderful if this night in Fresno could ignite a desire for thousands of prayer meetings to spring up across America—meetings where they have come to pray—and only to pray.

Why and how 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)

God’s wake up call to California

Of course, people are going to hate this blog. Of course, even some believers will be offended and think we are setting ourselves up as some sort of ‘saviors’ of the state. But nothing could be further from the truth. We are not heroes. And neither are we delusional about our small role in what will be a gigantic miracle.

What I am saying is that God is sending the Golden State a wake-up call. He is shaking, purifying and rebuilding. God-haters beware. Look out you who have your hearts set on a fully secular, socialist state with no place for the Christian church.  God is rolling up His sleeves to do a work—a work of extremes.

This impending act of God will consist of both extreme joy and extreme terror. Watch for those who shake their fists at God. They will find themselves fighting against God—and losing that fight!  He will take away your sleep. He will remove your arrogance. He will defeat your most trusted weapons. He will take down your secret tactics. He will turn the tide of public opinion against you.

These are the days of Elijah! This is California’s reckoning with truth and righteousness. God has surveyed the cities. He has heard and heeded the cries of His intercessors.  He has had enough of what we are doing to the children.

The roar of the words of the Psalmist is heard on high: “It is time for You to act, O God, for they have regarded your word as void.” (Psalm 119: 126)

It is only one tent, but it matters very much what has happened under this tent in Dinuba California. Yes, the sick have been healed. Yes, the lost have charged into the Kingdom. But, above all that, an army has formed. I saw their eyes last night. I felt their fire last night.

They are a new breed of believer—the kind that multiplies faster than anyone can know, and who will reach out with power like no Christians before them. They are ready. They are coming.  And, they will multiply in numbers unseen since Azusa Street and the Jesus Movement.

God’s wake up call to the God-haters is simple: You have held sway over California for too long and your days are numbered, and your agenda is coming to an end.

But God’s wake-up call to the church in California is even greater.

  1. God is saying to every pastor here to stand your ground. Stay on message. Hold on, for fire is about to fall on the smaller churches, the hungry churches, regardless of size. The watchword is: “STAY!” Don’t give the cities away. Don’t sell out and move to a “safer” state.

Acts 14:3 says, “Therefore they stayed there a long time, boldly in the Lord, Who was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.”

You are not just to stay, but to make signs and wonders your weapon to stem the tide of evil. Let miracles flow. Preach a pure message—a message that God can crown with miracles.

  1. Pray the Lord of the Harvest. Matthew 9:37 Then (Jesus) said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

Each night the crowd is amazed to see the river of souls flowing to Christ. It’s no accident! We sent out workers. We went into the nests of evil to extract treasures out of the darkness.

The wake-up call California Christians need is this: God is not fascinated by your programs and slick presentations. He is trying to save and deliver millions here who currently writhe in untold misery. Believers here seem think this is someone else’s job. That is why we lost the state: because we thought someone else was doing that job.

People mean well when they walk up to me and say, “Mario, you are doing a good work.” I reply, “No, I am not doing a good work…I am doing the work.” This work is OUR work. It is the real work of the church. Everything else is just distraction—something we made up and called it the work.

  1. The state can be destroyed. That reality must set in. As glorious as these tent meetings are, I can’t dwell on them. As beautiful as the healings are, I can’t linger there. Compassion clings to me. Urgency overwhelms me.

‘Revival’ or ‘Rot’ is California’s next destination.

Right now, the Lord of the harvest is sending out laborers into His harvest.  It is time for every believer to find their place in the work, and join us.

The evil that is being worshipped here cannot continue indefinitely. At some point justice will be handed down by the God of Justice.

God has two words for everyone who reads this: WAKE UP!

A SPIRIT-FILLED RESPONSE TO CALIFORNIA MADNESS

California is now beyond words. The insanity coming out of their state government boggles the mind and it can be totally disheartening to the believers who live here.

It is never safe to make sweeping statements or try to gauge the mood of all Californians.  No matter how hard you try, you will generalize. But no one can deny that California is pagan, addicted, digitally distracted, angry, skeptical, depressed, and demonically oppressed.

California has for decades been paganized by a media tsunami of filth, the tyranny of secular progressives, and the silence of the Shepherds.

-Poverty is spreading rapidly there and many are victimized by the greatest income inequality in America.  California is now dead last among the 50 states.

-California is the magnet that is pulling the popular votes of fifteen states and the District of Columbia into the Nation Popular Vote Interstate Compact. This movement is an attempt to make an end-run around the Constitutional Electoral College. The purpose of the NPVC is to make the Left-wing politics of the largest population centers the law of the land, and disenfranchise the smaller states and rural communities.

-Californians are over-medicated by misguided doctors and laser-focused drug dealers.

-Californians are bitterly divided by politics. There are the large blue cities which are dominated by Socialist-Democrat politicians and there are the smaller rural communities that are bright red, Republican, pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, who are disgusted by the insane laws pouring out of their state Legislature.

Take a look at some of the demonic insanity taking place in California:

-California Senate Passes Resolution Telling Pastors to Embrace LGBTQ Beliefs. Not content with drag queen story time in public libraries and forced instruction on gay lifestyles in public schools, legislators are going even further and violating the First Amendment by making it a crime for the clergy to state from the pulpit what the Bible clearly says, that God will punish all sexual sin.

 –CA Lawmakers Pass Bill Allowing ‘Free’ Chemical Abortions For College Students  Students for Life of America (SFLA) President Kristan Hawkins said,” California legislators are recklessly experimenting with students’ lives and health by advancing a plan to force school health centers to become abortion vendors, pushing chemical abortion pills to force an intentional miscarriage.  These Toilet Bowl Abortions would create havoc on campuses, as girls are sent to their dorm bathrooms to bleed and pass an aborted infant in a toilet, without medical supervision or assistance,” Hawkins added.”

-California has decided to effectively separate their state from the rest of America, declaring themselves to be a sanctuary for illegal aliens, protecting them from ICE raids.

-The prison system is a revolving door for dangerous criminals and pedophiles. Currently, there are 100,000 sex offenders registered in the state. This means that 1 in 400 Californians are on the list, living near schools, and mostly unmonitored. California passed a bill that will go into effect in 2021 that will allow most sex offenders to petition to be removed from registries, as long as they have not committed another serious or violent felony or sex crime, allowing them to go undetected and unsupervised.

-California is anti-Second Amendment. They have banned nearly every firearm and any magazine over 10 rounds, blocked citizens from obtaining carry permits, prosecuted those who have defended their families, and added an expensive background check that is required when anyone buys ammunition.

-Worst of all, many feel no hope for the future and are taking their own lives in record numbers. In short, California is in a condition that is beyond words.

-Many more Californians than you realize are saddened by the general defeatism coming from Sacramento. They are fed up with the fake news media, and appalled at the demented teaching being employed by a sick university system.

While that description sounds like I cannot find much good in Californians the opposite is the case. There is much good left here.  In fact, I believe this state conceals a vast number of warriors of faith, generosity, and courage.

When I say California is beyond words, I mean California can no longer be reached by mere words. We must have something new…or, something so old it is new.

What do we do now?  There is a clue in something Billy Graham once said.  When a reporter accused him of setting the Church back 50 years, Billy said, “I was trying to set it back 2,000 years!” In the third decade of the first century A.D., the world lived in a similar swampland of despair, perversion and anger.  Christianity emerged from that morass.  But how did she do it?

The church verified the resurrection of Christ with signs, wonders, and miracles.  The church infused the gospel with their infectious joy, their irresistible love for one another, and their golden service to the poor and the forgotten of society.  These things provided the Christian clout.  This is why Saint Francis—for whom San Francisco is named, by the way—ministered to the poor and operated in the gifts of divine healing, said, “By all means preach the Gospel, and if necessary, use words.”

What Californians need is what I call The Blatant Attempt.  The Blatant Attempt is drawing a line in the sand that alerts the public and defies Satan. It consists of four clear steps.

 1. A highly public and powerful invitation:We have been guilty of asking people to attend meetings and conferences that are not compelling and do not stir the heart. Moreover, we have been afraid to make that invitation a matter of public knowledge. We must be brutally honest as to exactly what the purpose of the meeting is: to encounter the living God, the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.

 2. Thus, we must invite them to encounter the power of God in California. We must spell out that God cares for people and has healing power for those who suffer.  Think about it! Don’t you believe that when people brought the lame, the blind and the lepers to Christ there must have been a conversation about what could happen if they came to the event!  That kind of expectation is a must if The Blatant Attempt is to be effective.

3. We must alter the service to meet the challenge. Nothing is worse than selfish Christians. Dismantling and rebuilding our meetings so that they are an event where compassionate Christians lead those who are sick and hurting to a miracle. It should not be another tired event where over-fed, bored saints are further lulled to sleep. If we can still cling to ‘business as usual’ in this dark and desperate hour, it proves how misguided and deceived we truly are. These powerful and anointed new meetings must include fasting and intercession.  The format of these new meetings must be based on surrender to the Holy Spirit.

4. We must contend to make revival permanent. When the Glory blasts through, keep going!  There should be no return to normal, this should be the new normal.  Trust God to give you strategies to host His presence from now on! Maintain the fire, and channel the fire into a sustainable way of life.

This is my exhortation to every ministry in the State. I would love to work with you, but whether we work together or not these truths are for all Spirit-filled leaders in California. But what I have just described to you is what we will continue to do, until the raging river of God’s Glory floods the Central Valley!

P.S. Our tent crusades are a blatant attempt to declare the Gospel that is beyond words.  I have an absolute assurance in my spirit that we are about to see the greatest demonstrations of healing power California has ever witnessed!

THE STORY

Before I get to the story of this photo with former New York Mayor Guiliani, I must tell you why Mechelle and I are in Washington D.C. We are doing a conference with Lance Wallnau. We know this is God because we are phasing out participating in conferences.

I had a revelation and personal revolution in the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, N.C. The entire library was deeply moving and convicting to me, but one thing was emblazoned in my Spirit. It was the short video of Billy Graham at 92 years of age talking with Greta Van Susteren.  She asked him what he would have done differently.

He answered that he wouldn’t have traveled as much. Greta said, “Why? Look at all the people you have helped by travelling.” He responded by saying that he would have done just as many crusades, but fewer conferences. He felt that the travel was unnecessary and often distracting from family and soul winning. He added that he would have prayed and studied more, and spent time getting to know Jesus better.

There are no words to describe the revolution in my soul. I knew immediately that I had to make changes. Events had to either be about winning souls or directly relate to soul winning. The ones that I had to take a pass on are worthy events that deserve support, but I simply must follow my heart. That was why the Extreme Dream Conference in Washington D. C. stayed on my schedule. This event is explosive in its potential to see not only souls saved on a mass scale, but it can also lead to moral reformation.

The instruction that Lance dispensed to us was urgent. What little contribution I made to them was not nearly as powerful as what we received.

I am returning to Reno, transformed, and I know our efforts will be impacted by our time with Sid Roth on It’s Supernatural, with Lance Wallnau, as well as Larry Sparks of Destiny Image.

As to the picture with Rudi Guiliani—the former Mayor is a big hero of mine. Mechelle and I were sitting having lunch in the Trump Hotel when we noticed Mayor Guiliani seated a few tables away. I couldn’t help it, I wanted to meet him. So we got up and went over to his table, but were gently rebuffed by his bodyguard. I was so disappointed.

As we returned to our seats, this thought hit me, “You can’t force things. Let God bring them to you.” This had little to do with Rudi. It had to do with some very big things coming to this ministry. I never gave this another thought all day.

We had a powerful day and late that night we decided to get a bite in the lobby. Out of nowhere Rudi Guiliani charges up to me and gives me a big hug! I know, right!

No one who saw this could explain it. My wife frantically took these pictures.

There is a message in here for all of us. God is going to bring favor and many breakthroughs. We must walk in faith and obedience, even when we see no results. God will make it happen for all who refuse to give up or back down.

Again, this encounter with Rudi was not about him—and not about me. It was a wink from God. It was a confirmation that His favor, and a way of letting us know that there are going to be many miracles in the upcoming meetings in California!

CALIFORNIA WANTS CHRISTIANS OUT

It is understandable that some Christian leaders in California do not want to face the horrible truth. I have compassion for them, because their situation is tenuous, to say the least.

Many pastors are in denial because the threat they now face in California is the stuff of science fiction. Here’s the unvarnished truth: the current leftist regime in California sees no future for Christianity in the State. They have made it their mission to drive true believers out of what they consider “their” State.

Sadly, the sermons being delivered by these pastors have given their congregations no warning of what they were about to face.  They learned the hard way that their child could be suspended for wearing a Christian t-shirt.  Their job in Silicon Valley could be lost if they witnessed on the job.  Textbooks that taught alternative sexual lifestyles were forced on their children.  The streets grew violent, and the Universities became intolerant.  In short, these churches have prepared their crowds for a fantasy world that does not exist, but did nothing to change the one that exists now.

For years, the evidence of this has been there. Gradually, churches began finding it hard to purchase property. Then it was difficult for Christian clubs to remain on campus. Christians were identified and then fired by Google, Facebook, YouTube and other tech giants. Silicon Valley made it clear that people who held the Christian Faith were outsiders who would either get with the program or be filtered out.

Then came Assembly Bill 2943. It essentially banned the Bible by saying that any book that promised deliverance from any LGBTQ life-style was a fraud and could be prosecuted as fraud. At the last minute it was defeated. Tragically, it was not defeated by the church, but by a much darker agenda. They pulled it, even though they had the votes to enact it into law, because it was just a test. Sure, there was outrage, but not nearly enough to stop AB 2943. They wanted the public to adapt to the idea and to blunt as much of the backlash as possible. They plan to reintroduce this bill soon.

AB 2943 was built on the LGBTQ youth protection bill (S.B. 1172) authored by then-State Sen. Ted Lieu, to prevent state-licensed therapists from practicing “psychological child abuse” on minors under the age of 18. Then- Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill in Sept. 2012, telling the San Francisco Chronicle: “This bill bans non-scientific ‘therapies’ that have driven young people to depression and suicide. These practices have no basis in science or medicine, and they will now be relegated to the dustbin of quackery.” Lieu’s bill became a national model. 18 states followed, with similar legislation.

Radical political activists and politicians across America watched Assembly Bill 2943 very closely.  This bill is a threshold law—a model for similar laws across America.

But now they have launched a whole new attack against the church. They are blaming the Christians for high suicide rates among the LGBTQ community. You heard right.

Lawmakers in California have passed a resolution that singles out the State of California’s religious communities and forces them to fully support LGBTQ individuals.

In an astonishing bid to have people of faith conform to the agenda of the pervading progressive culture they are pushing, the legislators even blamed religious individuals for many of the issues faced by those in the LGBTQ community today – including suicide, the Federalist reports.

The resolution, which recently passed through the California State Assembly, reads: “The Legislature calls upon all Californians to embrace the individual and social benefits of family and community acceptance” of LGBTQ people. The document unapologetically pins blame on people of faith for being contributors to the sky-rocketing suicide rates among the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.

“The stigma associated with being LGBTQ often created by groups in society, including therapists and religious groups, has caused disproportionately high rates of suicide, attempted suicide, depression, rejection, and isolation amongst LGBTQ and questioning individuals…”, the bill reads.

So, with this unproven assertion put forward as fact, the California legislature is effectively seeking to force religious people to agree with and support the LGBTQ community, even if they hold strong personal convictions that would draw them away from doing so.

The message is clear: The Left sees no future for Christianity in California, except for a watered-down humanism they find acceptable, which is not Christianity at all.

The millions of believers in California and their pastors must wake up to the fact that the current regime ruling the State wants zero coexistence with the church.  Of course this is a shock.  Yet, ignoring it would be a disaster.

California is well known for the lack of unity among Christian denominations. However, if Christians in California cannot rise in unity to oppose the hatred against our faith that is streaming out of Sacramento, then the church will be driven underground.

We have no choice but to rise up as one voice!

I am holding out for a miracle. That is why I have invested more into winning souls in California this year than any previous year. I am expecting a miracle. Why? Not because I have faith in man, but because I have faith in God and in the power of prayer. Millions are praying.

Dr. Harry Ironside said it best, “It is unthinkable that when tens of thousands of GOD’s beloved people are crying from the depths of earnest hearts, “Revive thy work in the midst of the years,” that GOD does not intend to bring revival and blessing.”

Please join us in prayer, as we believe for an outpouring of the Spirit of God on California!
