THE MOMENT I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR IS HERE.

In 7 days, we open the most strategic crusade in our history. I have been waiting with unbearable expectation for this event. When the tent goes up next Saturday there’s no turning back.

We are challenging the forces of darkness by staging–not a concert, prayer or worship gathering–but a full blown city wide soul winning miracle crusade inside a tent. Our intention is to conduct it with wisdom but without compromise.

I do not fear man. God has taught me to obey His voice and no other. There have been countless times I wanted to react against injustice and evil when the Holy Spirit restrained me. I fear no government agency. That is the work of Christ in my life and not personal bravery.

We did not shut down our tent crusades because we feared man or virus. That is a point that I must drive home to you. The rest of this will not have the impact I am praying for unless you clearly understand that.

Unlike a church that owns their own building, for a tent crusade you must get a permit. No permits were available after the shutdown. I was fully prepared to obtain private land and force the issue. But God said no.

Being sidelined while California was being destroyed by a virus and her government was torture. Again and again, I thought about how desperately needed our tent meetings were.

I told our team and partners, 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.

The only difference is that we are not waiting for Sacramento to tell us when the ban is lifted. We can’t wait. We won’t wait. Here’s why:

I thought of Jesus waiting to heal the sick until He was thirty years old. How much misery He saw. How many times He must have yearned to intervene.

When I saw the riots. When I saw the spike in murder, addiction and suicide. I can’t describe to you my yawning frustration.

As the months passed my inner pain grew worse. I pleaded with the Lord to release me. Surely the risk of jail would be better than sitting on the sidelines.

The fire in my bones intensified until I despaired of holding it in! I could not just hear, I could feel the anguish of lost souls in California. I was on the brink of an eruption. Then at the precise moment…it happened today. God spoke.

“REOPEN THE TENT CRUSADES.” Instantly I felt peace and excitement. It is from that peace and excitement that I make the following announcement:

As you already know, we will reopen the Living Proof Crusade along Highway 99 on Sunday October 11. The tent goes up on the beautiful Granite Park where we have several acres of parking and direct access to hurting neighborhoods. How did we get this site? Well, you just have to believe in miracles my friend.

Not only that, but the tent will be up for 6 days! The meetings will be at 6:30 PM every night from Sunday October 11th until Friday October 16th. But there is so much more to tell you!

An army of trained and anointed workers has been praying for thousands of people in neighborhoods, parks, and anywhere where groups gather inn Fresno. They carry the message of hope so gravely needed in this hour. The acute loneliness, despair, and addiction is being confronted and healed in Jesus’ name!

We have purchased new equipment that will more than satisfy any concerns about cleanliness. We have luxury bathroom trailers. We will take great pains to make sure the tent, chairs and grounds are spotless!

Most of all, we expect the anointing to flow in a measure we have never known before. It will not surprise me if we see impossible healings that will rock the medical community.

I am preparing 6 original soul winning/healing messages—messages born out of my time of being sequestered!

Our expectancy for this tent crusade like crackling electricity! We have never felt expectancy like we do right now.

These verses perfectly describe what it will be like, what will happen under our tent:

Isaiah 61: 1 “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn…”

Out of all of those words, one jumps out at me: vengeance! It is time to make the devil pay for what he has done to California and our nation! It is time for vengeance on all the lies, political tyranny and suffering in America.

Forgive me…but is it wrong to hope that on October 11 a fire from heaven will fall—a fire that will not be quenched until it engulfs the whole nation with revival!

It is not a coincidence that this tent crusade will occur right before the most urgent election of our life. For that reason I am calling on all who read this to begin to pray fervently for this crusade.

Under normal circumstances—which is something we have not been under for a long time—we would not press you to travel to Fresno to be a part of a historic relaunch of our Living Proof Tent crusades. This is a once in lifetime opportunity for you to be a part of an epic outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

Remember: Sunday October 11- Friday October 16th at 6:30 PM Granite Park 3978 N Cedar Ave, Fresno, CA 93726.

The shutdown is over! The vision resumes with more power and momentum than ever! Satan will pay dearly for what he has done to California and America.

To all of the partners of Mario Murillo Ministries let me make this official. Your prayers and support kept us strong and ready. You faith in the calling of this ministry is being rewarded with a magnificent comeback. So we will be rejoicing over a great harvest of souls. The addict, the suicidal teenager, the gang banger, and the victimized citizens of California are going to be visited by Jesus in glory and fire.  Hallelujah!

As the months passed my inner pain grew worse. I pleaded with the Lord to release me. Surely the risk of jail would be better than sitting on the sidelines.

The Holy Spirit never fully explained why we had to shut down. Of course we wanted people to be safe but that was not the main reason. Someday I know God will tell me why I had to wait. As soon as He tells me, I promise, I will tell you.

Our internet ministry and social media exploded during the shutdown. It seemed I should be content to enjoy this new found success. But I am a soul-winning warrior. Always have been, and always will be! If all I ever do is make videos and post things on the internet it will surely kill me.

In the last few weeks the fire in my bones intensified until I despaired of holding it in! I could not just hear, I could feel the anguish of lost souls in California. I was on the brink of an eruption. Then at the precise moment…it happened today. God spoke.

I AM STANDING AGAINST THE DEMONIC POWER OVER CALIFORNIA

Under our Tent in Fresno, bodies will be healed of sickness. The power of depression will be broken. We know this because it has happened, again and again. A miracle can happen to you or to someone you love.

Acts 14:3 says, “Nevertheless, they stayed there a long time, preaching boldly, and the Lord proved their message was from Him by giving them power to do great miracles.”

That verse says it all. We welcome anyone to come and to see the proof that the message of Jesus is for every soul—no matter how sick, addicted or hopeless they may feel.

Here is our message to California: In our Tent, Jesus will break the chains of sickness, addiction, and despair. In our Tent, the rules of the street die. In our Tent, you will find the Life you were born to live.

An army of prayer warriors is already locked in targeted intercession to break the power of Satan in California. Christians are in training to put boots on the ground. These prayer-covered workers will soon touch California’s most forsaken: from homeless camps to crack-houses. Everyone, from the down-and-out to the up-and-in will receive our witness.  Our workers will not bring just food and clothing—they will bring the anointing to heal and to set captives free.

While I was in the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, NC, the exhibit of Billy preaching in the Eastern Bloc countries brought me to tears. Not long after Billy preached there, Communism fell in these nations. Not only that, but it fell in the exact same order of Billy’s visits. I thought, “What an amazing miracle!”

Then I thought, “Why not such a miracle for California?” Los Angeles has a great store of the buried treasure of past revivals. From L.A. the greatest outpouring since the Book of Acts emerged, the miracle on Azusa Street. The greatest evangelists of the 20th Century have held meetings there: from Aimee McPherson to Billy Graham. There, the greatest youth revival in American history was born—the Jesus People Movement.

Highway 99 is our assignment, for a reason. Millions who live along this corridor are suffering, and their quality of life has dropped drastically because of the lockdown. But the big difference is that Central Valley families think differently, and something is stirring there!

I hear the rumble in this valley of millions who are sick to death of the whole mess. They don’t want what their kids are being taught in the schools. They don’t want drag queens reading to their children. They do not want Black Lives Matter or Antifa burning down their city. They don’t want any part of the medicated, mentally dulled elites who compose the government of California. They don’t want this disaster to continue. They yearn for hope!

You are the heart of the mass crusade we are holding in Fresno. Your prayers, support and love have taken on muscle. You will be able to feel the impact of your faith. The diseases that are oppressing many are going to be healed, because of your faith.

Can you feel the urgency of this tent crusade in Fresno?  Let God fill you with expectation and a spirit of prayer!

Let God speak to your heart! There is a place in these meetings for you. There is a miracle waiting there for you. You will see God use you in a way you have never imagined. No matter what the level of power of your gift is currently, let me tell you, it will go to a new level.  Do you fear witnessing? I assure you that an inner fire will make you as bold as a lion. Not only that, you will return rejoicing over the lives God has used you to bring to salvation. Come along, stand beside me, and become the Christian warrior you never imagined you could be.

I can’t overstate the urgency of prayer. Please, won’t you begin praying for us right now? In the coming days you will be able to volunteer to help in this historic tent crusade.

 

 

This is a message to those who support Mario Murillo’s message to America.
As you know, the lockdown stopped our tent crusades.  Prayerfully, Mario decided he would stop raising outreach money, but still keep his outreach team on full salary. That is when the idea for the War Chest Collection was born. It has been a huge win-win situation.Take our 3 bestselling books, make them a collection and offer them for just $27. 
Now, all the proceeds from the War chest will go to the tent crusade in Fresno.
This collection includes a signed copy of Mario’s latest book Vessels of Fire and GloryCritical Mass the classic on revival—Edgewise a guide to living in the last days. We call it the War Chest Collection.
When you get the War Chest Collection you not only get three amazing books—books that can change your life—you are keeping Mario’s voice strong, and you are helping us invade California. Order your War Chest Collection now.

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!

THE LEFTISTS OF CALIFORNIA ARE TODAY’S PHARISEES

The Beast described in the 13th chapter of the book of Revelation isn’t after justice, equality, or the wellbeing of people. He is also called the false prophet who will absorb the power of the world and bestow it on the antichrist. California government is behaving the same way—absorbing a way of life to offer it to the God of “Wokeness.”

They have unleashed misery on the people. They have turned God fearing, hardworking, law abiding citizens into hostages in their own homes.

Gavin Newsom and his cohorts have proven they don’t want a better life for law-abiding Californians. Quite the opposite—they are hell-bent on ending something they don’t understand, in favor of something they can’t even define. They are acting as if they are part of some kind of doomsday cult.

Nothing else explains their tyrannical intrusion into every aspect of the lives of Californians. Nothing else explains their blatant suspension of the Bill of Rights in California—specifically: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, and the right to bear arms.

The leftists of California are today’s Pharisees. There are three ways in which they behave like the Pharisees in the New Testament.

1. They have laid aside the Word of God in favor of their traditions. Jesus told the Pharisees they were guilty of “laying aside the commandment of God,” telling them, “you hold the tradition of men.” (Mark 7:8).

The leftists in Sacramento have done this not only to the Bible, but to the Constitution of the United States. Their treatise of tyranny is called “California values.” These values, which they want to be the blueprint for the other 49 states, overrule freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and the right to dissent. 

Here are the very words of the Constitution: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

California has denied those who defy their politics or religious views the right to assemble. They dare to call it a ‘safety precaution.’ California social media instantly bans voices they deem contrary to “California values.”

One California Congressman named Evan Low even said to the Christian churches of California, “The church must evolve.” And if you dare to disagree with their agenda, they feel they have the right to disband your organization.

2. They won’t lift a finger.

How perfectly Ricky Gervais exposed Hollywood Pharisees when he said, “People who live in obscene luxury and entitlement have no business scolding everyday hard working people.”

Jesus said, “(The Pharisees) bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do to be seen by men.” (Matthew 23:4-5)

3. They are hypocrites: They decry global warming, but fly everywhere in private jets, leaving a huge carbon footprint. They want to take away your guns, but their private security is armed to the teeth. They want you to sacrifice, but they will live as they please.

Silicon Valley is a bastion of income inequality. Their hypocrisy knows no limit. They say all the right things—with that familiar smug, distant look on their faces—and yet, they condemn Wall Street for all the things they themselves do.

Google, Apple, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter are all hypocrites. Apple bills itself as a champion of human rights but uses sweatshops in China. Google says, “Don’t be evil,” but censors anyone who has opposing views.  Facebook and Twitter shadow-ban Christians and Conservatives, even as they are touting ‘freedom of expression’ and the beauty of ‘sharing ideas.’

Here is the new sacrament of Sacramento:

Thou shalt have drag queens read to your children in public libraries. Thou shalt let boys into your little girl’s restroom at school. Thou shalt be taught about sexual positions and self-gratification in the classroom. Thou wilt not farm the land because we must use the water to save a 4 inch fish. Thou shalt not cut the underbrush even if it causes massive wildfires. Thou shalt welcome the thousands of felons and sexual predators we release into your neighborhood and let them double your crime rate. Thou shalt not have healthcare, yet thou shalt be taxed to pay for the healthcare of those who came here illegally. Thou shalt help pay for free needles for drug addicts, and free contraceptives and abortions through your taxes. Thou shalt be homeless while non-citizens are housed and veterans sleep under bridges. Thou shalt call MS-13 gangsters ‘children of God,’ as Mother Nancy hast said. Thou shalt not turn over to the police illegals who have murdered Americans—even if they murder thine own child.

Finally, there is the vast human tragedy unfolding in the Central Valley of California. A PBS report said, “In the suburbs of East Contra Costa County, the poverty rate has grown by more than 70 percent in the past decade.”  That doesn’t begin to tell the story of every way in which California has failed millions living in the cities on Highway 99.

Stress and despair drives an alcohol and drug epidemic. Highway 99 is the most dangerous highway in America for DUI.  The gangs are expanding and oppress the people. Farmers watch land turn into dust bowls while trillions of gallons of fresh water are pouring into the Bay. Despair is everywhere.

I rebuke this devil—this heresy of “California values.” We are taking our tent and a message of signs, wonders and miracles into the mouth of this dragon. There is a special vengeance resting upon me because I know that the good people who live along Highway 99 deserve better. Yes, I will take it out on the devil for the lies he has told California. I nurse a fond wish, not only for massive revival, but for an awakening that rises to action and votes these criminals out of office!

 

Victory Report from California

We knew God had chosen Chico for our first tent crusade in 2020. The enemy remembers Chico. It was once the site of a great youth awakening. I know because I was in it! It was an outpouring that produced powerful leaders.

Robert Maddux was born again at that time in a remarkable manner.  Yanked out of darkness, he became a true man of God—a pastor and a powerful influence upon the lives of many leaders.  Gaylord Enns is still leading leaders here in Chico, but carries a message to the nations about the Love of God. He was swept up in the fire of revival in that same visitation. Roger Houtsma met Jesus in an epic way and became a miracle- missionary evangelist who conducted many towering crusades in India. And, it was also in Chico that I was called to preach.

Lonnie Decker is also another hero, a mighty woman of God. After her husband went to be with the Lord, she became the pastor of his little country church. I remember the night that she said she would open her heart, home, and church to the hippies God was saving. And God began saving them in an amazing way. Soon we saw rallies with thousands in attendance.

Another wonderful part of the history of the Lord’s work in Chico happened in the City of Pacifica, just south of San Francisco. I happened to be at the home of Cecil and Lillian Cooper. Cecil was a vice president at Bank of America. During dinner he slid a brochure in front of me. The brochure was for a resort named Richardson Springs.  He said, “I’m buying that resort and I am going to open a Christian conference center. I am calling it Springs of Living Water.”

“The Springs,” as we affectionately called it, became a hub for revival—a home for converted hippies and so many who were converted out of the drug culture.  Many mighty voices ministered there. Dick Mills, a man with a true prophetic gift that many of you may remember, was a powerful force at The Springs at that time.

Soon, the Springs became the home of Donnie Moore’s amazing youth camps, where thousands of young people continue to be revolutionized every summer.  Then The Springs became a Youth With a Mission base, and remains one to this day.

The first tent crusade of 2020 carries the greatest challenge. The reason is simple: it is the most rushed.  There is little you can do during the holiday season. So, when the New Year arrived, we hit the ground running. The training we received last year proved to be of invaluable help for the coming meetings! We learned to ignore what we saw with our natural eyes, and to only go by the Word of God.

All of the permits we required came in on time. The literature came together beautifully. Workers reported for duty, even when given minimal notice. All the while, we felt the presence of the devil nipping at our heels, trying to get us to stop. But, this year, we have never slowed down. This year, we have ignored even the most daunting threats and have just kept charging forward.

The enemy wanted to bury, and bury deeply, those vast wells of revival that still exist in Chico. The success of this tent crusade has hinged on successfully implementing a new weapon God had given us: it is called the Night of Miracles.

In Fresno, Dinuba, and Hanford, it was the Nights of Miracles that set the stage for the breakthrough. These Nights are a kind of D-Day for usbecause they are the initial beach landing.

But in Chico, we found ourselves at a loss to know where to hold our Night of Miracles. Suddenly, the phone rang and we received a call from Josh Jameson who assists Steve Grandy at Jubilee Church in Chico. They wanted to do what they called a Word Explosion in January. We immediately realized that we were to team up to do an event that would bless Jubilee and at the same time give us the breakthrough we needed in Chico.

Of course, the devil came with all his usual lies. He said no one would show up. He said the religious spirit over the city would smother any fire that might come. I got so excited by every lie he told. Because I knew the opposite must be true. And was it ever!

That Sunday night, the church was full early, and the faith level was sky high. The same thing happened on Monday night.  There were clear miracles of healing, yet something even more important happened. It is so important because it exposed a fallacy about Chico, and for all of California, for that matter.

SOULS WERE SAVED AND SOULS WANTED TO BE SAVED.  Those of us in the church always wish that the unsaved would want Christ, but we have been conditioned to believe they are closed to the Gospel. The Devil dreads the idea of souls being saved, and the secular-progressives laugh at the idea of youth turning to Jesus. All of that went up in smoke at Jubilee in Chico!

Now, I want to bring the most exciting news of all…and I need your help. On Tuesday, February 11th at noon, I am going bring a special message to pastors and leaders, and you will never guess where. Talk about full circle…the free luncheon is at the Springs! The Youth with a Mission base at Springs of Living Water will be the location for this historic lunch.

You already know the Tent goes up in Chico at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds March 15th through the 18th, but first, we will gather the leaders for a special time in the Word and Power of God. This luncheon is free, but you must register. Call us at (775)-238-3473.

Please remember to hold us up in prayer. I look forward to seeing you there!
