IT WAS NOT UNTIL WE HIT THE STREETS OF FRESNO

It was not until we hit the streets of Fresno, it was not until we met the voracious hunger for God in the people, and only after the number of people being saved and healed exceeded anything we had seen before—it was only after all that, that it hit us: How evil! How wrong! How devastatingly misguided it was, to close the churches.

Monique Hernandez is praying with a woman. The photograph says it all. You can feel the love of God. You can feel the desperation and cry of that new-found daughter of God. I do not know her back story, but I know her future is glorious.

The street-level miracles almost seem to make the crusade tent unnecessary. On the other hand, if this is what is happening before the tent goes up, and before the lights, chairs and PA system are set—what will God do in the tent itself? What will happen when the hurting and lost come for miracles?

For weeks now, our team from Inner City Action Stockton, led by Frank Saldana, has shared the Gospel in Fresno under an open heaven. They have invaded homeless camps. They have undertaken a massive door to door campaign. They have given away nearly a thousand large boxes of food and prayed unapologetic prayer over countless families. Again, and again, they find open hearts. The neighborhoods greet them as if they knew the Bible verse that says, “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things” (Isaiah 52:7).

This report is both a blessing and a rebuke. The church should have never surrendered her First Amendment right to freedom of religion. However, what Satan meant for evil, God is using for good.

You must clearly understand what we are doing in Fresno, and why. Something will be attempted here that effects all of us, no matter where we live. This will not be a peaceful protest. This will not be an outdoor worship rally in protest of the lockdown. This will not be a friendly and light-hearted community event. It must be clearly understood that we are bringing a full-blown soul winning miracle crusade to Fresno.

We don’t care about reputation. We are not trying to be liked. We are in battle mode. We are marching to the orders and promise of 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, “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, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…”

I know how Satan works. It may appear that we have unchallenged access to Fresno, but I know better. I know that it can be a trap! I am bracing for an October surprise from the enemy. It may come from the rabble who control certain neighborhoods. It may be demented protestors. It might be Sacramento stepping in to shut us down at the very last moment. It may even be local politicians.

But God has His people here, too! God gave me this promise: Acts 18:9-11, “Now the Lord spoke to Paul in the night by a vision, “Do not be afraid, but speak, and do not keep silent; for I am with you, and no one will attack you to hurt you; for I have many people in this city.” And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.”

In this blog I am asking for prayer for Mechelle and me, because, as a couple, we have made a firm resolve to resist the enemy in whatever form he takes. We are utterly convinced that we are in the right, and, most importantly, that we are in the will of God.

If you would like to volunteer to be a part of this miracle in Fresno please use this link  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdPkEJaMO2-62_WGHWqycedQ1KD_eEhqi7wgGXLnHvyrOIn3w/viewform?fbclid=IwAR1hCBOx3_H-QeLMyZCzb0DBgtG6v4lG1-2-pwGz_k6lCvpnC2WzP5Hee40

I am sure of these things: The day the leftist overlords of California announce that all the churches can reopen, will never arrive. They will put it off and continue to put it off, so long as the church allows them to do it. We are not in rebellion—they are. They have invented restrictions that no longer make sense, and that were never legal in the first place. They have done this out of their antipathy toward Christianity.

The other fact I am certain of, is that we must civilly disobey those who tell us not to preach the Gospel. I believe what God said. He has many people in high levels of authority here who understand that cities in California desperately need soul winning miracle crusades. And that, by the Grace of God, is what we are going to do in Fresno.

 

 

 

 

 

 

P.S. A Special message to those who support Mario Murillo’s message and outreach to America. Did you know that the outreach you see above was completely financed by people ordering our War Chest Collection? Think of that. It is a true win win situation.

If you look at the page you will see no advertising. And there never will be. And if you get our newsletter you will see that we have stopped raising money for projects we can’t do right now. But even that was not good enough for us.
In this pandemic we needed something that was truly a win-win situation. We prayed for something that would help the people, and us, that was not a garish fund raiser.
Then, we remembered how John Wesley taught his young preachers to always bring books with them that would help the people. Why not then, at a time when people have time to read, offer them something that will empower them and at the same time keep us strong and ready to go as soon as the door reopens?  
We are amazed at the impact of Vessels of Fire and Glory. That book is not just blessing people—it has started a movement! Critical Mass remains required reading in many Christian schools and has never stopped influencing people who pray for revival. Edgewise offers wisdom for living in the last days. Together they provide you with solid, hard-hitting and encouraging truth. Not a bad thing just now.
The War Chest Collection has handed the enemy a double defeat by empowering God’s people and keeping us strong and ready.
Thank you for listening and get your War Chest Collection today. Turn this Fall season into equipping, encouragement, and fire! We are all going to come out of this mightier than ever!   -Mario Murillo Ministries

Thank you for making this blog a force in America. Now on to California

Thank you for making this blog a major force in America! Only God knows the true number of people we have reached through this effort.

Now let me turn your attention–on this last day of 2019–to our God-given plan for California in 2020. 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.

Below is our confirmed dates for 2020.

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.

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 saw many miracles in 2019, but the dire facts about California and America’s future demand a bold and drastic outreach. Thanks for your prayers.

This section directed to our ministry partners.

This is the last day of 2019. Some wanted to help us in 2019 and didn’t get around to it, by using our donation page today you can still get credit on your I am directing the final part of this blog to those who want to help us win souls. I want to make sure you feel absolutely no pressure to give.

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.

The Miracle Has Already Started

This is going on right now on the streets. We are hours away from the tent going up in Hanford and the outreach is no joke. The young revivalists from Inner City Action are spreading the Gospel and sharing with so many hungry souls. We have no doubt that a harvest of souls is coming in the next few days both on the streets and in the tent.

Everywhere in Hanford there is an openness to the Gospel. These soldiers from Inner City Action are finding that many are ready to repent and follow Christ.
Hanford has been saturated with prayer. Churches have open their hearts and their buildings to contain the miracle that is coming their way. Electric expectation is in the air.
In this time of violence, perversion, despair and gross darkness the Gospel shines even brighter. These pictures tell a story the media doesn’t want you to see. Far from being angry toward God Californians are hungry, open and grateful for prayer. The power of hope is amazing.

The reports keep coming back that people want a miracle. They want to be prayed for. They want God!
This is ominous for the devil because it indicates a statewide hunger for Christ. The ground is rumbling and a blessing is coming! But it also shows that diluting the Gospel is both foolish and unnecessary.

We at Mario Murillo Ministries violently, totally, and utterly disagree with the notion that we should ‘tone down’ the Gospel in America.  There are millions of innocent bystanders who have not rejected Christ.  They are simply caught in the middle between haters telling lies and the misfiring sermons of voices that are too timid to tell the truth.  We must take our message to these millions who are trapped in the middle. This is why the answer is not to ‘tone it down’ but to turn it up!

We take a stand because we belong in the national conversation.  America has a drug, divorce, suicide, anger, and atheism problem.  Our voice needs to be heard because we carry the most immediate and effective cure for everything that is hurting America.
The tent is going up in Hanford and everything is pointing to a harvest of souls and divine healing miracles. And last but not least our prettiest worker.
I am praying for this tent crusade to be our greatest impact ever! Come and bring someone if you can. But everyone pray!

What happened last night

 Tonight, in the tent at Weber Point Event Center, the Holy Spirit had me do something I had never done before. The event center union required us to hire security guards. One of these guards happened to be standing next to a woman that I knew Jesus was healing. I looked at the guard knowing he was not a believer and asked him—by the Spirit’s direction—to place his hand on her shoulder.
His eyes began to water as he felt the power of God flowing through his hand. She was healed and he experienced living proof of miracles. It was such a touching and beautiful moment! The kind that only Jesus can create!
This was the very beginning of a river of healing that filled the tent. The next miracle was for a young man who was devastated. He had been healed of diabetes sometime ago, but the disease had come back.  The Holy Spirit granted me a word of knowledge about his story, an explanation, and faith to declare a total miracle.
I told him to remember the fervent commitment he had made to be used of God right after his healing, to win lost and dying souls. He burst into tears as he realized how true this was. The forceful healing power of Jesus came upon him−and then something else overtook him−he received a mighty prayer language as God gave him a fresh baptism!
This was followed by one healing after another, and of course, Satan had to chime in. Suddenly, hecklers began disrupting and saying vile things against the meeting. For some, this was very disturbing, but to the veteran soldiers of the cross in the tent, it was cause for rejoicing, because they knew that demons were being stirred up by the moving of the Holy Spirit. It proved we were on the frontline and it meant that the devil knew something big and threatening was starting to happen.
One might think that such heckling would have caused confusion, but instead, the enemy was defeated. I gave a clear appeal for lost souls to come to Jesus, and apparently, none of the disturbance had fazed them. They stood all the way across the front of the tent and surrendered their lives to Christ and received the gift of eternal life. Glory to God!
Tomorrow night promises to be one of the most explosive nights of miracles. If you can, come and experience the healing power of the Holy Spirit. If you know someone who needs a miracle or proof of the power of God, do what you can to bring them to the tent!
“Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires, drink freely from the water of life!” −Rev. 22:17

 

 

 

A MOTHER’S DAY MIRACLE IN LAS VEGAS

Our tent went up in a dangerous part of Las Vegas in May of 2018. The site was surrounded by poverty, violence, and despair. That was the spot that God chose for us. We learned of the needs of this area in a very unusual way: Prayer tents.
These smaller tents offered free prayer to anyone who would ask. Locals simply entered the tent and teams would pray for them.  That is when we discovered the number one thing that burned in the hearts of these inner city moms. They all prayed for protection for their sons who were caught in the crossfire of gangs.
That is when an idea from the Lord ignited our outreach. We instructed moms to tell their children that this year for Mother’s Day they didn’t want flowers, chocolate, or a dinner in a restaurant−tell your sons and daughters you want them to come to the tent and hear the Gospel.
No sooner had this idea come, than we got a second one from the Lord: A raffle to pay one month’s rent to the winning mom.
We gave out the raffle tickets on Sunday, Mother’s Day, and told them the prize would be given out the next night. The Monday night was also designated as the night the mothers would be accompanied by their children.
Monday the tent filled up early. Soon it was time for us to give away the prize of one month’s rent. That is when something extraordinary began to happen. When we called out the winning ticket, a woman began shouting thanks to God, but not for the reason you might think.

She exclaimed that she had prayed that God would let her win, so that she could give it to a mom who could not be at the tent meeting.   “I want to give this to a woman I know who has two young children. She is in a wheelchair, and lives in a trailer park.”
The next day Mechelle, Frank Saldana, and some of our team went to the trailer park. They walked into the manager’s office and asked the lady in charge if she could tell us how to find that mother.  The manager began crying when she heard why we were looking this mom.  “I was going to evict her today! It’s my job, but I hated having to do this. This is a miracle.”
Mechelle, Frank, and the team sat with this wonderful woman in the wheelchair that was facing homelessness that very day. Not only was her rent made current, but Frank gave her a card for Inner City Action, and said, “Don’t worry about where you are going to live, just call us and we will make sure you will be okay.”
Tuesday night a businessman came up to us and said, “I need to pay the rent for both of these moms.”
Let’s go back to the original Monday night. We had found a Mother’s Day weapon! The tent was jammed with moms, sons, and daughters. I preached a simple direct call to surrender to Christ. The altar was flooded with young people, and mothers all over the tent got the greatest Mother’s day gift of their lives−the gift of knowing they would have their children with them in heaven, for eternity!

We wish all the moms the very best and blessed Mother’s day!
