Part Two of A Giant Step Forward for Mario Murillo Ministries



Yesterday we told you about our giant step forward.  Here now is the conclusion of what changed this ministry forever.  The answer came like an asteroid striking the earth in Los Banos California.  It was here that we first truly saw how an outreach can leave something that would keep expanding.

It feels like the atmosphere of the city changed.  Not only are souls saved and sickness healed en masse, people feel hope on the streets.  Reports of jobs and people getting raises are common.  Even the weather changed bringing much needed rain to this drought-stricken region.

God is invading all levels of need.  Night after night they come to hear the Gospel and be saved.  They drive from over a hundred mile radius with friends, family and even enemies to hear the message and see the power of God.

The Holy Spirit has put in place a fellowship of pastors that we believe will sustain revival long after we leave.  They meet together.  They pray together.  They combine forces for the good of the city.

While we are eternally grateful for the miracles of healing we have seen in Los Banos there is one that is very special to us.  A little girl just 5 years old faced a horrible situation.  Her spine had an 18 degree curvature from scoliosis.  She was to have a rod inserted in her spine once the curvature reached 20 degrees.

Now catch the significance of this healing…I did not call her out.  Her parents brought her to the leaders of the church for prayer.  I preached it over and over again that Jesus wanted to transfer His anointing of miracles from select vessels to the entire Body of Christ.  It was time for them to take their stand in miracles and they did!


You can see from her X-rays before and after her healing!  Talk about LIVING PROOF!

Now let’s talk about the return of repentance.  This is the story of the president of one of the most notorious motorcycle gangs in the world.  He sat humbly and expectantly during the worship and the message.

Then the power of the Holy Spirit began to convict him of his sin.  The convulsive breaking of this man reminded me of the conversion of John Newton the slave trader who wrote Amazing Grace.

Large tears welled up in his eyes as the sorrow over his sin crashed down upon him.  Then the hope that he could be forgiven became infinitely more important than his pride.  He did not care that he no longer looked strong or intimidating.   Who can describe the glorious work of the Spirit?

I watched the process in him as he lived out the words “twas grace that taught my heart to fear and grace my fear relieved.  How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed.” 




How holy and beautiful is the work of the Holy Spirit in convicting modern Americans of sin and convincing them of forgiveness.   When you see dozens under this influence you realize how tragic a thing it is to cheapen the Gospel or to believe that America is now somehow immune to Christ’s power.

Imagine the joy when scientists and doctors emerge from grueling tests to find that the medicine they have discovered has been proven beyond all doubt to be a cure for some hideous disease.  Now you know how we feel…we know that LIVING PROOF works.

Nevertheless, our joy is tempered by a profound soberness.  In 6 short years we have lost nearly 300 years of Christian heritage and American greatness.  This was Satan’s masterpiece.  He will not let this sacred ground be retaken without giving us the fight of our lives.

We have a towering opportunity before us but it is a long hard road filled with adversity.  Paul said it best, “For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.” – 1 Corinthians 16:9

However, soldiers upon winning a battle that they know is a turning point in the war do take the time to savor their hard won victory.  Mario Murillo Ministries has just taken a giant step forward.  We know who we are and what we are called to do, and we will not apologize for the standard of excellence that we must maintain in our events.  The vision that we have received from heaven has been tried in the furnace of our nation’s present wickedness and it has come forth as gold.

Precious partner rejoice!  This mighty locomotive called LIVING PROOF has left the station and the momentum is the greatest we have ever seen.  Help for America is on the way!



P.S. How proud and grateful we are for John and Rita Calderon who lead Day3 Church and who served so sacrificially to build unity and facilitate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

What happens now: Make this Valley Full of Ditches

Make this Valley Full of Ditches

By Mario Murillo

What happens in Los Banos now? I have already gone on record as saying that this is the greatest revival spirit that I have ever seen.  So we just keep going this week right?  No actually we are going to wait until Sunday September 7th.

This makes no sense. Stop the rallies at the peak of momentum?  How can you stop when multitudes are being saved and healed? In the natural it makes no sense but in the world of the Spirit it makes perfect sense.  This is because a strange and wonderful guidance from the Lord has come about Los Banos.    These last few weeks were but a taste of His glory.  He is providing a short period of preparation for the real glory and the real harvest.

Here is a story from the Bible that explains what God is doing: 2 Kings 3 beginning with verse 15: “‘But now bring me a musician.’ Then it happened, when the musician played, that the hand of the Lord came upon him.16 And he said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Make this valley full of ditches.’ 17 For thus says the Lord: ‘You shall not see wind, nor shall you see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, so that you, your cattle, and your animals may drink.’ Then verse 20 says, “Now it happened in the morning, when the grain offering was offered, that suddenly water came by way of Edom, and the land was filled with water.”

3 Kings needed water for their armies to avert disaster.  The prophet Elisha was called to save the day.  They fully expected him to lead them to water but instead he said, “Make this valley full of ditches.” God wanted them to make a container for the miracle!

what if

God had to stop us! Holy Spirit is saying to the army in Los Banos, “MAKE THIS VALLEY FULL OF DITCHES.  We are to dig ditches to contain the massive miracle that is coming.  By stopping we are not retreating we are advancing.

What do these ditches look like?  We dig ditches in prayer, planning and preparation.  If hundreds are saved we need to make nets to contain the catch.  If meetings go on night after night we need to pace ourselves so that we do not grow weary in well doing.  And finally, we must dig in and brace ourselves for the unexpected onslaught of the enemy.

The next few weeks are crucial to the outpouring of God Los Banos.  We are making the greatest statement of faith imaginable. Here is our confession: “Lord You are about to send us rain, harvest and blessing on a massive scale.  We are going to contain it!

This is an opportunity that we cannot waste.  God is about to show up on a level of power that is like nothing any of us have ever seen before.  Pastors do not shrink back from your duty!  Ignite the people, give them their marching orders.  Tell them it is now or never.
