WHY WE DON’T COMPROMISE

At Mario Murillo Ministries we see things differently because we were born different.  From the very first we faced persecution.   While I was still in high school I preached in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco—ground zero for the ‘love and peace’ movement.  Moving across the Bay to Berkeley meant going from the frying pan into the fire. 

The instant we hit Berkeley we had to decide:  What we would preach?  How would we preach it?  Then, as now, people were trying to create a Godless utopia.

If our message was of human origin, or if there were even a speck or a flaw in its nature, the crucible of Berkeley would have blown it to smithereens.  Instead, unexplainable power appeared at each point where the ministry was threatened.  Something out of this world would always step in and provide words, resources, ideas and miracles, exactly when we needed them.

Not once in that cauldron of revolution, did we feel the need to rebrand Christ, or present a ‘new and improved’ Gospel.

For years, there has been a rising tide calling for Christians to “keep your faith to yourself.”  Many modern pastors—and even the Pope—have joined the chorus asking Christians to ‘tone it down.’ Yet our tent is packed with the very people who are supposed to be turned off by a direct approach.

Consequently, many churches have retreated into a cultural bubble where they do everything but preach the Gospel.  We have entertained, amused, inspired and distracted, but we have not converted America.  Because of this, the average Christian can defend neither their faith, nor marriage, and cannot even state why the Bible is the inspired word of God.

The original reason that the Church adopted this “indirect approach” was to get society to like us.  What we got was just the opposite.  Our compromised message has fueled greater contempt for the Church.

The media is now maligning the message of Jesus every day.  Francis Spufford said, “They think we believe in a load of Bronze Age absurdities. We promise the oppressed ‘pie-in-the-sky’ when they die; we are too stupid to understand why what we believe is irrational, and we are savagely judgmental.”

Atheists call us a threat to human progress.  Secular progressives condemn us as hating the poor, homosexuals, and women.

How is it possible, that after all the work we have put into removing the “offensive” parts of our message, that society is even more offended?  The answer is that there is a small but loud faction that hates Christ. 

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!

The same Holy Spirit that outfitted our ministry to face the city of Berkeley will equip us to mount a fresh invasion of our nation.

Now let me get to the goal of this letter.  We have learned through every trial and breakthrough that God does not just give guidance, He also gives a plan.

We have a plan.  I can say without apology that this plan has come to us from the Holy Spirit.  Again and again, the Spirit of God has used events in the Bible as a model for what we should do. The verses below reveal a three-point plan that was given by an angel to the disciples when the church was gravely threatened.

17 “But the high priest rose up and all who were his supporters, that is, the party of the Sadducees, and being filled with jealousy and indignation and rage, 18 they seized and arrested the apostles (special messengers) and put them in the public jail. 19 But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and, leading them out, said, 20 “Go, take your stand in the temple courts and declare to the people all the words of this Life.” (Acts 5:17-20)

Embedded in those simple words, are our instructions for facing the onslaught of the current leftist revolution in America.

1.Take a stand. We cannot judge other ministries. We can only answer for what God asks us to do. He has ordered us to take a stand.  There is no confusion about what the angel was asking the men of God to do.  He was telling them to stand their ground in their nation.  This is not just a physical act, it is also moral and spiritual. We must take a stand against Satan’s agenda for America and we must take a stand for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

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 angel was reinforcing to the apostles that their message was valid and urgent. And so is ours today.

2. Take your stand in the temple courts. Ours is not an obscure message that should be whispered in the secret places of society. The temple courts were the heart of Jerusalem. The angel was clearly instructing them to raise their voices in the very center of their culture.

In that same way we must go where the people are and where the biggest lies are being told.  The angel gave them an exact location to take their stand and that location spoke volumes to the apostles.  God is serious about making a difference in the culture.

This is why the tent is perfect. It is a movable miracle that can be pitched in the areas where pain and misery are unchallenged.

3.Tell all of the words of this Life. What a scathing rebuke to ‘popular’ Christianity. While Christian celebrities scurry to and fro to find buzzwords to replace the core doctrines of the Bible, here is an angel telling the apostles that they must tell all the words of this Life. They cannot leave out a single benefit or a single one of the demands of the message of Jesus Christ.

How right that angel was.  There is life in those words.  There is life in the blood of Christ, the cross and the resurrection.  There is such powerful and amazing life in them that no mountain of eloquence or cunningly devised sermon can begin to match.

If only we would learn to brave the offense of the cross in our preaching!  We would find that very soon the supernatural life of God would overtake our preaching and create miracles in people that infinitely surpassed the results of the current ‘seeker-friendly’ preaching.  Society would not care about the demands in our message because of the changes they would see in their souls, minds and bodies.

In city after city, we will take a stand in the heart of that city and tell all the words of this Life! NO COMPROMISE!

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!

JOIN US AT CHUKCHANSI STADIUM IN DOWNTOWN FRESNO TO CALL ON THE LORD FOR A CALIFORNIA MIRACLE! 

 

SHOCKING BREAKTHROUGH

What God did last night can’t be described as just ‘a good meeting.’ This is something far beyond a good meeting. Dinuba knows—I mean the whole city knows—that something supernatural is happening in the tent!

Not only did they jam the tent, they filled it to its maximum capacity. We had taken the precaution of bringing two truckloads of chairs. We didn’t anticipate that we would need all of them, but as it turned out, it was barely enough.

Now, due to the excitement that tonight’s meeting has generated, we will have to make a third trip to get more chairs. Tomorrow night (Monday, October 7, 2019) has been announced as a miracle service. There is absolutely no doubt that an army of God’s people will scour the area to bring in those who need a miracle.

The way God’s people took the challenge, I fully expect them to be just like those who sought out the Lord: 54 “And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized (Jesus), 55 ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to where they heard He was. 56 Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.” (Mark 6:54-56)

The sermon that came thundering out of me tonight in Dinuba was the most forceful challenge I have ever unleashed on an audience. I began with a question. “Who knows when it will ever be this way again? Whatever you do, you must do now.  Whatever changes you need to make in your schedule, you need to make them now.”

I repeat that challenge to you: The worst mistake you can make is to think this meeting is about Mario Murillo, or worse, to think it is a good event rather than a once in a lifetime encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ. Whatever you do, you must do now.  Whatever changes you need to make in your schedule, you need to make them now.

Churches are unified. Workers are abundant. We are on a site granted by the city of Dinuba, California itself. That is extraordinary favor!

Our greatest crime would be a partial response to a total blessing. Pastors, I must exhort you not to seek self-preservation. This is way bigger than just your church. God is up to something far greater than church growth. You must seize the moment when God has placed the arrows of deliverance in your hand:

2 King 13: 15 And Elisha said to him, “Take a bow and some arrows.” So he took himself a bow and some arrows. 16 Then he said to the king of Israel, “Put your hand on the bow.” So he put his hand on it, and Elisha put his hands on the king’s hands. 17 And he said, “Open the east window”; and he opened it. Then Elisha said, “Shoot”; and he shot. And he said, “The arrow of the Lord’s deliverance and the arrow of deliverance from Syria; for you must strike the Syrians at Aphek till you have destroyed them.” 18 Then he said, “Take the arrows”; so he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, “Strike the ground”; so he struck three times, and stopped. 19 And the man of God was angry with him, and said, “You should have struck five or six times; then you would have struck Syria till you had destroyed it! But now you will strike Syria only three times.”The king of Israel made a partial response to a total harvest, as did Simon Peter:

Luke 5:4 “When (Jesus) had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” 5 But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.”We must fully obey the Lord.

We must let down all the nets.  Let down the nets of time. Let down the nets of influence. Let down the nets of zeal.

We must know the hour of our visitation. This meeting will either be remembered as a massive breakthrough or as a tragically missed opportunity—missed because we allowed unimportant things to be more important than the things of the Kingdom of God.

After my initial challenge to those in the tent, I went on to speak to those who were unsaved, telling them, “You need to know when God is sending you help. Come forward now in total surrender.”  I was told that 150 came forward to be born again, but, as always, only God knows the true number.As the Word of God says, when His Spirit comes upon you, you will never be the same:

1 Samuel 10:6 “Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.”

What happened tonight is going to make history. I guarantee it! My greatest challenge will be getting to sleep tonight. This is because a vibrant, fiery army is out there at work. They are going to bring the sick and lost to the tent. I will be kept awake by the thought that what was once just a vivid dream about Highway 99—the Corridor of Glory—is now a powerful reality, and is in no way daunted by the ‘impossibility’ of revival coming to California.

Stay tuned!  God is just getting started!

 

 

Greatest Question

As you read this our tent is going up. Thousands know we are coming. A rare kind of unity exists between leaders here, and an amazing anticipation is in the air. We have more volunteers and prayer warriors for this event than any previous tent crusade. There is a buzz on the streets.

Many who are involved in this outreach are starting to talk about an awakening. They seem to sense that we could see a revival—and they don’t mean just ‘a good meeting’—they mean a moral outbreak that could sweep an entire region into the kingdom of Christ. I am talking about Dinuba, California.

So tonight I am pondering a great question: What starts a revival?

Here we are, two thousand years after the church began, and Christian theologians still don’t know what starts a revival.   Authors by the dozens release new books to tell us what the “steps for revival” are.  No sooner are they out, than the Spirit falls in a manner that totally contradicts their books.   As soon as we add a “step” to revival, God steps over our step…

Often past revivals are no help because history shows that the old revival usually opposes the new revival.  It seems dangerous to be tagged an expert on revival.  As the old rock song says, “If I claim to be a wise man then it surely means that I don’t know.”

Revivals have started in more ways than you or I can imagine.  Some began among children.  Some started in prisons. Some were touched off by the very people the church despised the most.  Has God kept us clueless about revival because He knows that anything that we can analyze we will try to control? It is certainly in us to do that, and there is no getting around it.

So why isn’t the devil happy?  We are divided, disorganized and ignorant of his devices.  There is no major threat of revival in America, am I right?  But the evil one does not relax.  Does he know something we don’t know?   Like maybe revival has never been actually caused by the church?  Does he remember how many times revivals have hit him by surprise?  Does Satan respect one aspect of revival more than we do—that revival can strike at any moment, in any place, through any believer?

Okay, let’s face it, it is truly beyond us to know how to start a revival, and Satan doesn’t know how to stop one.  That, dear pilgrim, is called an impasse.  Only God can break the tie.  So what can we do?  Brace yourself:  WE NEED TO LOOK AT GOD!

Satan is watching God more than he is watching us because we, my friend, are not the threat.  Here is a love/hate triangle:  God is looking at us, we are looking at the devil, and the devil is looking at God.

WE NEED TO LOOK AT GOD.  Get this, and you have taken a giant step forward.  We need to be watching God.  But that is so simple and obvious.  So, if it is that simple and obvious, then why aren’t we doing it?  Why in fact are we doing everything else but that?  Again, is it because Satan knows how to busy us with stuff that seems holy, but is irrelevant to revival?

Even our prayers are often not directed at God.  They are merely a set of statements we have been told to make, and statements we have been told will supposedly cause God to work.  Face it! God refuses to operate within our formulas.  He operates from a secret:  “The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant.” (Psalm 25:14)

God is looking for a relationship with those who want revival.  Exodus 31:18 is a strange verse.  It says, “And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon Mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.”  Israel has been waiting for centuries to gain legitimacy, because with the Law comes an identity and a legacy.  So why does God instead delay it for weeks so He can commune with Moses?  Here’s the rub: You want revival, but God wants you.  

Is it possible that in all of our arduous efforts we have overlooked the most amazing simplicity in the entire universe:  “If you abide in Me and My Words abide in you, you shall ask what you will and it shall be done.” (John 15:7)  Can it be that simple?

Revival is the natural result of getting so close to God that His secret takes hold and that ignites a chain reaction with others who suddenly cannot live without intimacy with God, and so and so on.

When can we know that revival has started?  In my studies, I have noticed a common denominator among the great revivalists who have led the great revivals.  They had an unshakable conviction that a revival had already started.  No matter what anyone said or did, they would not back down from the confession “revival is here!”   Much of their preaching was devoted to this conviction.

Jesus said, “Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!”  (John 4:35)

Revival-starters kept an infectious declaration going, no matter what.  Though the people around them felt that revival was months or years away, the revivalist says, “NO! IT IS ALREADY HERE!”

 

Again I ask, when can we know that a revival has started?  I got my answer one day at the beach when the tide was out.  Gentle white foam tickled my toes.  And the still small voice of the Lord spoke to me, “No matter how small that wave is, it is an ocean wave.  It is a relative of the tsunami.” 

Yes, a tidal wave can travel at 500 miles per hour, yet it is still nothing but an ocean wave, just larger.

“A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.” (Matthew 12:20).   This verse is saturated with much meaning, but I will limit myself to the part about the smoking flax.  Jesus is not going to put out any fire, no matter how insignificant it looks, until justice is victorious.

The first time you cried out for America to be saved, God took you at your word and started a revival fire in you. The first syllable that was spoken in prayer for revival at any gathering where women prayed, began the revival.  The first time a pastor told his people how much we need revival, the spark was ignited.

The job now is to cooperate with God for bigger and bigger and bigger waves.  The tide rises as the revival core pays the price of obedience.   If they keep to the intention of the revival, it will intensify.  If they refuse the hand of man, and the ways of Baal, the waves will continue to come, in faithful and ever increasing power.

How else can I say it?  You are a revival-starter, simply by wanting more of Jesus!

Now a special video message from Mario Murillo about what starts this Sunday

THE RIVER RAGES ON

It had been announced that the meeting would begin at 6 P.M. But it’s only 5:30 P.M. and the church is already full. People are parking several blocks away from the church now. You can see people racing toward the building, because they can hear that we have already started singing.

I can’t number the California myths that I am watching die right before my eyes. They say Sunday nights are a bad time for a meeting—especially in California. Most churches have given up trying to meet on Sunday night. They say that Christians here have been beaten down so badly that they are apathetic. They say that unless you have a gimmick attraction like a famous worship team, the people won’t come out. They say California Christians love to straggle in late. They say a lot of things.

But, this audience is ready! They are electric with expectancy. Their worship is unbridled. They are out-singing the worship team!

Now I am standing in the pulpit, surveying the crowd. The Spirit of God overpowers this unworthy servant and I am strictly ordered to ask a woman to stand up who is sitting three rows back and two seats in. God wants it made very clear that she is about to be healed. Every eye is on her. Here is the video of her healing.

Why I am able to know the multiple illnesses that ravage her body is still beyond me. It breaks me, and it is deeply humbling. It floods me with the fear of the Lord. Now I am commanded to declare her miracle. There is no doubt that pain and sickness have just vanished. All glory to Jesus!

When it is time, I bring the message of the night. I quote Mark 6:5 “Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them.” I ask the pastors surrounding me this question: “Can God do a mighty work here?”

Interestingly, the worst and the best miracle rallies Jesus ever had take place in that same chapter. His hometown saw few miracles, but when He went across the lake, miracles exploded:

54 And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him,

55 ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry those who were sick on beds to wherever they heard He was. 56 Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.” (Mark 6:54-56)

His hometown knew Him so well that they didn’t know Him at all. The people on the other side of the lake “recognized Him.” They had revelation about His power, His glory and what it means to have Him in the vicinity.

Christianity is the only movement in the history of the world where the Founder attends every meeting. We must recapture the wonder of “wherever two or three are gathered in My name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20)

Suddenly, I had to stop preaching. Miracles are coming to people across the meeting hall. The Holy Spirit told me to have a man place his hand over his chest. I tell him, “You have heart disease!” His wife instantly begins weeping for joy, as he is healed. Here is the video of his healing;

It is difficult and often not wise to pick the most dramatic miracle of the night. But when he was healed, the whole place went up in praise. Now I am standing beside a woman who cannot walk. Again, I am instructed to tell her she is being healed and that the reason she can’t walk is because she had fallen down the stairs. At first, she limps, barely able to hold her balance. Suddenly, she starts running! Praise explodes!

Now dozens are claiming and receiving their miracles!

The night ends as it should. I tell the audience to come to Jesus and be saved—but they must make Him Lord. They are only saved if they surrender and make Jesus Lord of their lives. Some say a hundred souls are saved. Others say more. Only God knows the true number.

We are so grateful to Hanford Pentecostal Church of God and Pastor Bobby Guerra for hosting this amazing night.

I see a hunger for Jesus that should terrify the devil and the God-haters of California.

Why should you rejoice? Rejoice, because this is a sign for all of America. The Corridor of Glory along Hwy. 99 has claimed another territory for revival. The Living Proof of a new day for the Church in California means a statewide outpouring of the Holy Spirit has begun! Next Sunday, we will be in Dinuba, CA. Please, join us! Hallelujah!

 

Come with me to see a miracle in California.

Come with me and see a miracle happen to California. You may be one of those chosen by God to work alongside us in the Central Valley. You may just be a believer who understands what is at stake in California. Read the story that is not just unfolding in the Golden State but is specific to 4 major events coming soon!

Not long ago, five cities in the Central Valley made the list of the Top Ten Worst Cities in America.

Why I believe a miracle is coming:

The good people of this region have been hit by everything you can imagine, including drought, foreclosures, drug addiction, gang violence, massive homelessness, and breathtaking political abuse by Sacramento.

When California received $410 million in 2012 as part of a nationwide settlement with major banks accused of abusive foreclosures, Gov. Jerry Brown used $331 million of that money to pay state agencies in housing and other programs in order to cover their deficits.  Kamala Harris knew about this but kept silent. Now California has lost a lawsuit, and this money must be paid out to the victims.

The Central Valley was not even on my radar. Five years ago my bags were packed to move out of California. I was moving away and thinking, “Maybe it is time to pass the mantle on to someone else, and retire.” Then my nation went crazy.

That is when the dream was given to me—a life changing dream.

The dream happened during an afternoon nap between services in Stockton. I believe that this dream was meant to encourage the people of that city. Especially because of what was in the dream.

It was the kind of dream that I tell people they need to handle with caution. In the dream I was suspended high above California, and I could clearly see Highway 99, all the way from Red Bluff to the end of 99 at Laval Road in Arvin, California.

Suddenly, as I watched, Highway 99 was transformed and became a river! Trees started popping up on the banks of the river. The voice of the Lord said, “This highway shall be a corridor of my Glory.”

Five years pass, and I am invited on the TruNews Network with Rick Wiles. Next thing I know, he has donated an 8,000 square foot, brand spanking new tent, as well as 1,000 chairs from the luxury boxes of an NFL stadium. What a miracle!

God then revealed to me that this tent was to move south and follow Highway 99, and that the river I had seen would flow in the tent, healing innumerable sicknesses and would bring in a massive harvest of souls.

Now, here we are—watching the fulfillment of that dream. Indeed, the river has flowed south from Marysville, CA, then through Paradise, CA and the current intensified in Stockton. Now we are watching the unimaginable as the river is about to reach to Dinuba, Hanford and Fresno.

As I write this to you, thousands of people are experiencing an amazing dealing of God in these cities. There is something in the air—it is vibrating with hope and faith.

People like to use the expression: ‘something has shifted,’ but that feels woefully inadequate to explain the unity that is emerging among leaders—the expectancy in the people—and the acceleration that seems to be coming.

With all my heart, I know we are about to hit the mean streets in these cities and pull treasures out of darkness. We are about to feed the masses of poor and unsheltered.

Nothing will be able to stop the explosion of praise that will erupt when the miracles, that I know are coming, arrive.

Why am I telling you this? In order to fulfill this dream, we need workers. Why not join in something so wonderful that if Jesus tarries, people will be talking about it 30 years from now?

Many people have asked me, “What kind of workers do you need?” My question back to you is, “What do you want to do? Do you want to hit the streets and watch gangsters delivered? Do you want to help organize a statewide night of prayer in Chukchansi stadium? Do you want to be an usher in any of the services? Do you want to pray with those who come to Jesus?

“Do you want distribute food and clothing in homeless camps? What about helping with our massive children’s outreach in Fresno in November? Are you willing to give up your Thanksgiving Day?”  On that day, we will conduct a complete miracle service, followed by a sit-down dinner for a thousand people.

If you come to the Night of Miracles in Hanford, you will see the true fire and miracles of Jesus. If you come to six nights under the tent in Dinuba, you will see God rock an entire city. If you join the thousands at Chukchansi Stadium, you will feel the power of prayer like you have never felt it in your life.

Start by praying. Even if you are reading this from Wellington, New Zealand, the Gold Coast of Australia, or even Cape Town, South Africa, you can pray! Start now.

I promise you, a river of life will end up flowing out to you!

THE BIGGEST ANNOUNCEMENT

At last, I can tell you. The Holy Spirit has pushed back the veil further than I have ever seen it before. I have had an amazing encounter with Jesus. It began when this verse exploded in my soul:

Psalm 103:7 “He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel.”

He made it clear that he is leading me to understand a principle of war: Long range penetration. This is what God showed Moses. God limited Israel to just seeing His external acts, but He gave Moses purpose and understandinglong range planning and penetration. God gave Moses the “why” behind His acts. Moses was seeing God’s character, and how His character operated in the eternal purposes of God.

I have told you about my dream and my commission to take the tent south along Highway 99. But now I am seeing something spectacular. We are supposed to dig deeper into several areas in the valley, both in and around Fresno. We are not to have just one outreach—we are to stage FOUR MAJOR EVENTS.

Let’s review: Fresno and the surrounding area are quite literally devastated. Gangs and drugs have turned vast neighborhoods into war zones where innocent people cower in fear inside their homes. Not only this, but the homeless camps are vastly expanding. Over ten thousand people here are living outdoors.

Fresno is the future for every city in California if there is no miracle. Thank God! I believe there will be a miracle.

The massive amount of drugs that are flooding into California are being hoarded in many of the small towns surrounding Fresno. These little towns are the staging areas for the distribution of narcotics.  I would not even write about this if it were not for the fact that we have encountered it firsthand, and because God has sent His angels to protect me and my workers.

Here are the four parts of the biggest announcement I have made in over 20 years.

 1. The city wide Night of Miracles in Hanford, California: the date and location will be announced soon. Hanford is going to experience a great harvest of souls. Many leaders in that city are already primed to help us get it done. Just as God moved last Sunday night in Fresno, it will be that way in Hanford! This event will lead to the Living Proof Hanford Tent Crusade.

2. Dinuba: October 6-11 the crusade tent will be in Dinuba California. We have received amazing favor here. In fact, 500 people showed up for a rally to kick off promotion of the tent crusade. The city has given us use of the most prized piece of ground: the site of their new high school. Every single resident, addict, gang member, and homeless person in Dinuba is going to get a witness! Do not even think of missing Living Proof Dinuba!

Okay I can’t just give you the next part of this, without taking a deep breath…

3. October 20th: The California State Wide Night of Prayer in Grizzly Stadium, Fresno.  That right! We’re talking the Professional Baseball Stadium where the Fresno Grizzlies play.  It is going to be a night of prayer over the entire State of California. Please, join thousands of believers from all over California and America for a prayer explosion. In that rally, we will call out to God to heal our land and we will command devils to pack up and get out! Think of it: On this night we will take a stand between heaven and earth to break the grip of despair, addiction, crime, perversion, atheism, socialism, and evil in the mighty name of Jesus! California shall be saved!

4. Living Proof Fresno Tent Crusade November 24-28th.   Yes, you read it right! The crusade is going to continue right up until Thursday, Thanksgiving Day!  .  We will be working in the neighborhoods in the months prior, inviting young people who are bound in darkness to come to the tent. We will be giving away the most food, clothing, and shoes we have ever given away. It will be literally tons of gifts for the poor.  And think of it, we are going to give away 500 bicycles!

Each night will be saturated with Holy Spirit power on gang members, addicts, and the homeless. We are even yearning for Christians to come and get fired-up as never before. But Thanksgiving Day will be an indescribable act of God.

We are planning on having at least 1,000 people to sit and have Thanksgiving dinner with us! We hope to set up not one, but 3 tents, and have miracle services in all three!

That, my friend, is why I call this the greatest announcement I have made in over 20 years.!

And, by the way: You don’t want to know how much this will all cost. What you do want to know is that there has been a miraculous outpouring of support through the generous readers of this blog. Our war chest has enough in it to set all of this in motion. Even the Stadium is already paid for! Of course we are going to need much more, but thank God for all we are able to do right now!

My final exhortation to you is this. Many believers limit prayer by simply praying that the lost will be saved. That falls way short of what our Lord and Master taught. He did not pray for souls to want God. He said they already do—that is not where the shortage is.  The shortage is in workers. Read these verses with that in mind.

Matthew 9:36: “But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He 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.”

We need workers! I know you will want to work on this amazing event. So I need you to do one of these two things, right now…
