HOW A MIRACLE IN SAN FRANCISCO THREATENS TO TOUCH THE WHOLE NATION

Only 16 years old, he lived in a refrigerator box in a squalid part of the city.  His miracle is tied to our destiny.   To survive, he sold his body to older businessmen.  He slept by day and worked the nights.

HOW A MIRACLE IN SAN FRANCISCO THREATENS TO TOUCH THE WHOLE NATION

By Mario Murillo

His father was a drill instructor for the military.  They lived 100 miles from San Francisco. When the boy admitted he was gay, his father punched him in the face and threw him out.  His last words to his son were, “don’t ever come back here.”

The boy took a bus to San Francisco.  It was not the paradise he expected.  It was cold, cruel, and humiliating.  A large cardboard box became his home.  Then came a night of miracles.

After a long battle, we got a permit to put up a tent in the China Basin area of the city.  Night after night, lost souls, addicts, prostitutes and gang members streamed into that tent and found Jesus.

On this night, the Holy Spirit gave me a strange but clear command: “Turn up the volume!” I resisted because I did not want to offend the audience.   God won.

I turned it up loud enough to be heard 4 blocks away.  That’s how far away the boy slept in the box.  It woke him up!

The boy wandered into the tent and heard my message on the love of God.  The Holy Spirit came and overpowered him with love and conviction.   He felt hope for the first time in his life. He raised his arms to God and received all that Christ wanted to give him.  He became a new creation.

The next day he took a bus home to his abusive father.  His dad saw him, flew into a rage and beat him again. “I warned you never to come back here again!”  With that the dad slammed door.

The power of God kept the boy from leaving. He sat on the porch until the sun went down.  When the old man fell asleep in front of the television, the mother quickly went out to the porch and snuck her son into his old bedroom.

The next morning, the father got up and demanded his usual breakfast from his wife. Before he could lift a fork, something overwhelmed him.

He put all his food on a tray and headed to his son’s bedroom.  He propped up his son on pillows, brushed his hair back, kissed him on the forehead and gave him breakfast. Then he said to his boy, “Son, I do not know what has changed you, but it is changing this whole family.”

The next day, I got the strangest phone call ever. A gravelly voice was cussing me out.  “I do not know who the %#@!* you are.  Something changed my son, and I have got to have what he has.  So don’t give me any &%#@ Religion.  Just pray with me to have Jesus!”  I did.

This was the first miracle—a miracle that would mark our destiny.

Not a day passed where I didn’t dwell on the power of a tent to be at the right place at the right time.

This miracle marked me so deeply that one day our primary weapon would be a tent.  I knew that it would take another miracle to start our tent ministry. The challenge of a tent ministry is so great that it had to remain a secret passion for decades.

Then, this last April, I was a guest of Rick Wiles on the global news network TRUNEWS.   We had just finished a radio interview.  He looked at me and asked, “Is there anything your ministry needs?”

Before I could answer, he asked, “Can you use a tent?”  With that he donated a beautiful, brand new 8,000 square foot tent and chairs—not just any chairs—1,000 plush folding chairs from the sky boxes of an NFL stadium.

It took two 60 foot semi-trucks to transport the tent, tent poles, and chairs from Vero Beach, Florida to Reno, Nevada.  Now we were forced to start our tent ministry.

However, we needed another miracle—a really big one.  I knew what the Word of God meant where it says, “see if I will not pour out a blessing you will not have room to contain.”  Finding the storage was nearly impossible—figuring out how we would move the tent and chairs and then set it all up was, in fact impossible.  We had no way to use our gift.

Enter Frank Saldana and Inner-city Action.  Get this: God led Frank to begin training his crew about tents before we met.  This powerful ministry that feeds and clothes untold numbers of the poor and homeless began retooling itself for a tent ministry.

Soon they had semi-trucks, drivers, generators, lights, staging, and most all—experience getting permits and setting up tents.

While we would focus on crusading to win the lost and heal the sick, Inner-city Action would feed and clothe the poor.  It was a match made in heaven.

Today is the first day of our first crusade in our new tent.  At 5 PM, we open in Fink White Park ready to meet all human need by the power and love of Jesus Christ.  What a day this going to be.

What started with one boy’s miracle in San Francisco, has the potential to touch an entire nation.

The moment we’ve waited for is here

I asked you to pray.  God sent the answer!  The moment we’ve waited for is here—something I have waited for all my life is here.  It was a dream hidden in the deep recesses of my soul.  It could not have arrived at a more pivotal moment.  It is our turning point. 

OUR NEW TENT IS GOING UP IN FRESNO!  Mario Murillo Ministries along with Frank Saldana and Inner-City Action and many local ministries are coming to Fresno.  We are setting up our tent on October 18th and it will be up until at least October 24th.

Our message to Fresno is bold!  “America can’t solve addiction, violence, poverty, and injustice.  Only one thing can heal us.  Jesus proved He was the Son of God by doing the things no one has ever done. Let us prove His miracle can still happen to you.  Start the life you’ve always wanted.”

The entire spectrum of human need will be touched.  Food and clothing for the needy.  Tangible opportunities for freedom from poverty and addiction.  The Holy Spirit will heal and deliver all who need miracles. 

Not only this but a revival fire with engulf the church.   Everything is set.  We have the tent.  We have the provisions.  The only thing left to do is decide on the exact tent location.  We have three options.  We will know within two days.

The miracle began to unfold while I was with Rick Wiles on the global news network TRUNEWS.   We had just finished a poignant and controversial radio interview.  He looked at me and asked, “Is there anything your ministry needs?”

Before I could answer, he asked, “Can you use a tent?”  He might has well have asked, “Can nitro use glycerin?”  He had no idea—only God and my wife had any idea how I ached for a tent.  Why a tent?

Rick Wiles did not just give us a tent—he gave us a brand new 10,000-square foot tent cathedral.  And—can you believe it—he threw in 1,000 plush folding chairs that came out of the sky boxes of an NFL stadium.  I couldn’t breathe because of the excitement I felt.

Rick and TRUNEWS also began sending us monthly sacrificial gifts toward our million-dollar goal.  Then they hired two 60-foot semis to transport the tent and chairs all the way from Vero Beach, Florida to Reno, Nevada.

This is the moment we have been waiting for: To connect hearts with pastors and leaders in a desperate city—to have the tent and equipment to take to that city—to secure the ground needed for an extended invasion—to gather an army from across America to help us apply the healing balm of the Gospel to an open wound. 

It is with epic excitement that we announce our first Living Proof Crusade in our new tent!

This is no light thing.  This is a major spiritual invasion.  I am asking everyone to pray and for everyone who can to get involved.  Call us at 775 238 3473 or go to mariomurillo.org

MARIO, WE ASKED YOU TO COME TO OUR CHURCH AND YOU SAID NO…WHY?

 

Yes, we have had to turn down invitations.  It’s time you knew why.  We live in an evil time with explosive changes.   We are assigned to the front line to see unprecedented miracles.   I am honored by invitations to come and minister.  We are prepared to help advance the Kingdom of God in any area…in your area, but we simply cannot be a part of business as usual.  I want to tell you the best way we can help you and the reasons we have had to turn down invitations.

We reach out to unchurched people–especially youth.  We offer proof of Christ’s power to heal, deliver and save.  We pray our event with you will lead to a general ongoing awakening in your area.

We can help when leaders are willing to do certain things.  Here is the list and the Bible verses that confirm them.

1. Invite other churches to be involved.  We do not require a certain number of churches to be involved but we consider it vital to open the meeting to as many as possible.  No true move of God has ever blessed just one church.  Luke 5: 6, 7 “And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. “

2. Invite community leaders to participate.  Leaders from business, education, law enforcement, politics and the media should be invited to participate.  People in these fields often have access to people and resources that ministers do not have.  They may also have just as great a burden for the city.  By asking for their help, you can greatly multiply your resources and impact.  Acts 16:14 “Now a certain woman named Lydia heard us. She was a seller of purple from the city of Thyatira, who worshiped God. The Lord opened her heart to heed the things spoken by Paul. 15 And when she and her household were baptized, she begged us, saying, “If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come to my house and stay.” So she persuaded us.”

3. Be willing to move the meeting from your church to a neutral auditorium.  We have no problem beginning a meeting in your sanctuary, but we need a willingness to move to a neutral site.  Whenever we do this, the level of power intensifies.   We have also learned that the unchurched are far more likely to attend if the meeting is in a neutral auditorium.  Acts 26:26 “For the king knows of these things, before whom also I speak freely: for I am persuaded that none of these things are hidden from him; for this thing was not done in a corner.”

4.Understand the difference between church growth and advancing the Kingdom of God. 

A.Church growth:   One big reason we lost this generation is “Attraction” church models simply do not lead to moral awakening.   The pressure to get new people by surprising them every week with creative cutting-edge entertainment is never-ending.  There is simply no room for God to act.

B. Advancing the Kingdom of God:  If the servant of God cries out for their church to advance the Kingdom of God, many wonderful things start to happen.  They will grow in quantity and quality.   Not only this, they will touch the urgent needs of their community and strengthen other churches.

1 Corinthians 2: 4 “And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.”

5. We want to demonstrate the supernatural with balance and integrity.  Groups that engage in out-of-Bible experiences do just as much harm as attraction churches. Bizarre behavior damages our cause.  An outpouring of the Holy Spirit will feature outbursts of joy and sorrow.  We dare not ban these life signs of revival.  What we’re against is behavior that distorts the Holy Spirit to outsiders.

1 Thessalonians 1: 5 “For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit and in much assurance, as you know what kind of men we were among you for your sake.”

In some churches the excuses were creative for why they could not do these things.  Sadly, we had to walk away.

We were even willing to offer training and other resources.  NEVER FORGET:  WE HAVE NEVER REJECTED AN INVITATION BECAUSE A GROUP WAS UNABLE TO DO THESE THINGS BUT BECAUSE THEY WERE UNWILLING TO DO THEM.  The size of your church is not nearly as important as the depth of your commitment.   Some churches came up with creative excuses for why they could not do these things.  Sadly, we had to walk away.

If your heart is open to all that I have written then be assured—we are ready to work alongside you to reap a great harvest in your area.

We want to help wherever there is a pure hunger for a true intervention of God.  We would love nothing better than to be able to work with you to win souls, heal the sick, and to see revival.

Sincerely,

NOW FOR SOME REALLY GOOD NEWS

 

Fasten your seat belt, this is really good news. They gathered with excitement and expectation…but none of us were ready for what happened next.

NOW FOR SOME REALLY GOOD NEWS

By Mario Murillo

It is a good sign…they keep adding chairs.  This is happening most of the night.  Another good sign: the house is filled with youth—youth who do not know Jesus—who battle everything devil throws at our children these days.  The best sign is everyone feels special power vibrating in the room.

We are doing a Living Proof Outreach with Ben Lucero, Isaiah Saldivar and the Awakening 209 in Manteca, California.

My message carries an unusual title: When Satan Helps Start Revival.  I begin by describing the strange experience I had after God ordered me to study the youth culture.  My research became torture as I fully grasped the curse Lucifer has laid on an entire generation.

I could actually sense the evil one boasting and threatening.  He was declaring his wicked intentions: “I will addict them.  I will shame them.  I will drain them of hope.  I will kill them.

Then the voice of God roared, BUT I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT ON THEM!  I tell them “I am here tonight because a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit is coming.”  I make a prediction about the emerging army of youth: “You will lay hands on the sick.  You will prophesy.  You will cast out devils.”

Then I explained how Satan is mentally off.  If the devil just wanted to deceive and damn souls he would make everyone content like cattle being fattened for the slaughter.  Instead, he tortures, punishes and makes his victims miserable.  He can’t help himself. Observe California—creating new laws make it impossible for people to be safe or happy.

-Child prostitution is now legal in California.

-Drug dealers must be let out of prison because of bed shortages.

-Violent felons—some who have killed Americans—in California illegally will not be taken into custody.

-In Silicon Valley, American workers are being fired and replaced by foreign workers—and the Americans have to train their replacements!

-California schools—nearly the worst in the nation— are chock full of corruption, mismanagement and loony curriculum.  Reading, writing and arithmetic are out.  Brainwashing about transgenderism, anti-Americanism, and anti-Christian studies are in.

Satan is overplaying his hand in California.  He is creating a misery and despair in the youth of the state that will drive them to Jesus!

Now the audience began to see the proof of what I was saying.  A miracle, pure and simple, hits a young lady.  I love it when the Holy Spirit’s word of knowledge is so clear, piercing and detailed that people no longer see the man speaking—only God.

By the Spirit, the story of her life unfolded.  The precise illnesses of her body and the childhood trauma that caused them all was revealed.  Her total healing rocks the room.

On the heels of her miracle more healings ignite. The vivid details about people’s conditions electrify mighty praise to Jesus the healer.

Suddenly spines straighten, migraine headaches vanish.  A man in the back becomes so excited he just gets up out of his wheelchair and begins a little victory dance over his healing.  A full 60 minutes of unobstructed healings flood the house with shouts of joy and mass weeping.

God saved the best for last.  Never have I seen conviction grip youth like this. It was as if they wanted me to shut up and let them come to Christ.  It was an instant response crowned with total surrender.  They abandoned their sin as if it were nuclear waste. Notice, in the picture, the overwhelming number of young men who came forward.  This is really good news—prophetic news about a coming youth revolution.

IN LAS VEGAS GOD KILLED A LIE ABOUT AMERICAN YOUTH

In Las Vegas God killed a lie about American youth

By Mario Murillo

We invaded Las Vegas.  It would never have happened without our partners.  God used you to send us to sin city!  I cannot overstate the strategic power of the war chest that you have helped us build.

The building was jammed.  The miracles of healing came effortlessly.   We can’t remember when the presence of God to heal was this widespread in a meeting.

In Las Vegas we saw God kill a lie.  The media is painting a picture of American youth that is a total fabrication.  Last night we saw the total opposite of what they say.  Youth crying out for Jesus to set them free and use them—a militancy for Christ is rising.

There is so much more good news out of Las Vegas but it must wait because I have a word from the Lord for you. It is white hot in my soul.  I will damage myself if I do not express it.

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS ROARING:  IGNORE THE OUTWARD APPEARANCE.  DO NOT MISS THE HARVEST OF AMERICA’S YOUTH!

Only once before have I been hit so hard with this mandate.  Jesus revealed the harvest at the University of California at Berkeley.  That campus was an impenetrable prison of atheism.  God burned it in my soul to ignore the outward appearance and press on.  There was a harvest hidden in plain sight.  Because I obeyed and stayed the course thousands were saved.

Now the media has built a new prison for our youth.   They desperately push the lie of a self-absorbed, easily offended, anti-God generation.  The media has to keep this lie alive or they will lose control of a generation.

We know accurate reporting is dead in America.  The media is a mouthpiece of the “social justice” movement.  Political correctness is their drug to keep the masses in line.  If they truly wanted equality and justice, they would not be pathological liars.

American youth are done with Christ?   We know better.  We are in the trenches with them.  We see them sobbing, repenting and crying out to Jesus for identity, destiny and anointing.

5

Get them away from their demonic college professors and the suffocating peer pressure and they melt before the love and power of God—not just in Vegas—but in every city.

Put your ear to the ground.  You can hear something coming…the distant rolling thunder of a generation waking up to Christ.

A harvest of young souls is coming just in time.  What a disaster if we miss it!

 Here are the things that the Holy Spirit is roaring.  He is emphatically ordering us to do these the following things to bring in the harvest.

  1. Ignore the appearance and be true to the message: The best messengers have always been faithful to their message. Proverbs 25:13 Says, “Like the cold of snow in time of harvest, is a faithful messenger to those who send him, for he refreshes the soul of his masters.” God is refreshed when His servants are true to his message.

Resist the pressure to alter or sidestep the Gospel.  Mark Dever said, “People often try to improve the gospel, but in “improving” it, they always end up losing it. This gospel we have received is itself full and lacks nothing. Thus, to add to it is only to detract from it—and from God’s glory.”

The Holy Spirit compels us preach, the Cross, the Blood, Heaven and Hell.  These themes convict lost souls.  Billy Graham was accused of preaching simple sermons.  Over and over he’d say “the Bible says.” Yet, millions came forward and he shattered attendance records all over the world.  Instead of dazzling oratory, he built sermons the Holy Spirit could use.

  1. Ignore the appearance and embrace a fresh approach. The enemy we face is sophisticated, and well-funded. We must look to God for a fresh approach.  We must saturate our plans in prayer. We must apply solutions from the Holy Spirit.  The ideas must and will come from Him.

While our message does not change our method will and must change.  We cannot change what we say but we must change how we say it.

We must take technology captive and bring it into the subjection of Christ.  Social media is the new agora—the new market place.  It is will be the site of miracles.

We must constantly update our technology and stay current with the changes going on in cyberspace and the youth culture.

  1. Ignore the appearance and let signs and wonders flow.

Why offer a partial cure?  Why not prove the message?  The supernatural must be presented boldly.  We should not fear rejection.  The outward appearance tells us they will mock us.  That appearance is wrong! Ironically, the supernatural has always been a part of youth culture.  They are pre-wired to miracles.

We bring the Kingdom of God to the youth culture—not just words.   Jesus said, “But if I cast out demons with the finger of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you” -Luke 11:20.

2

The 1960’s terrified parents and the nation.  The general consensus was that we had lost an entire generation to drugs and free love.   Look Magazine had a strange premonition.  They said this: “If there is a solution for our youth it must spring up from among themselves.”

Out of nowhere and among themselves came the Jesus Movement.  At first, pastors tried to get the influx of youth to fit the church mold.  Thank God they woke up and embraced the miracles among the young.  25 million Americans were swept into the Kingdom.

God has always told youth what He is about to do.   Young people have always been God’s catalyst to awakenings.  Now, He is saying the most explosive things He has ever said to youth.  He is offering them power He has never offered before.

By ignoring conventional wisdom and the outward appearance this ministry has stayed the course and is reaping the results.  Big miracles are ahead and the best is yet to come.

 

 

The Miracle of the Yuba

It is easy to believe there was a curse on the Yuba City/Marysville region. This is a place of worsts. In 1976, Yuba City had the worst school bus accident in American history.  Lori Puente, one of the students from Yuba City High School who survived said, “We lost 28 students and a teacher that day. There was no one in our small town that was untouched very profoundly by this tragedy.”

In 1971, the worst serial killer was captured in Yuba City. “Juan Corona said he murdered and mutilated 25 farmworkers four decades ago because they were trespassing in the orchards north of Sacramento”, said Sutter County Assistant District Attorney Jana McClung.

Since then other “worsts” have befallen this area.  It had the first major school shooting in the nation.  It has the highest rate of student suspension and child abuse in California.  It is flooded with crystal meth.

For this and many other reasons, it would take a miracle unlike anything we had ever seen to bring Living Proof to Yuba City.

The Miracle of the Yuba

By Mario Murillo

We have waited for years to be able to announce that a city in desperate need was truly rocked by Living Proof.  The miracle of the Yuba is that long awaited testimony.

Heaven had been bombarded with prayer for this outreach but we were still waiting for the breakthrough.  Every revival has an ignition point.  In Yuba City, it was when two churches linked hearts to touch their community.

The Bridge of Yuba City, led by Jim and Kristine Carpenter, and Church of Glad Tidings, led by Dave and Cheryl Bryan, brought the breakthrough we needed.

It takes every last drop of faith to keep a church strong in the Yuba City/Marysville area. They did not make this decision because it was convenient or even practical.  It was a sacrifice based on a passion for God to heal our land.  I want to thank them for their amazing act of love.

true riches blog

They not only provided workers, they cancelled their Sunday morning services to meet in the tent to win souls. Note to all Pastors: This kind of unselfish love will break the power of Satan over any region.

Unity became infectious.  The Church escaped the safe zones of buildings. Love took on muscle.  Good intentions became action.

On Wednesday, June 10, at 7 PM we opened Living Proof to Yuba City.  This supposedly hardened community converged on the tent at the Fairgrounds.

Yuba City Mayor John Dukes opened with a mighty prayer and introduced me to the crowd.  A mayor and an evangelist standing together to bring life to a city—think of that!

Still, many scoffed at the idea that we would prove God was real to this wounded region.  But God was not intimidated. He was about to do the one miracle that would prove His love to this region.

He directed me to a young man on my right.  My orders were to tell him the following: “You have suffered a devastating loss.  It shattered your faith in God.  It made you physically ill and has placed a dark cloud over your life.” This young man had been in a terrible accident that killed his girlfriend.  That loss wrecked his faith and affected his health.

Yuba miracle 1

This picture that shows him breaking before God and receiving a miracle says it all.  In a city that is defined by devastating deaths, God chose to make an emphatic statement. The first healing was a healing of the ravages of tragic loss.  God would break the cycle of darkness for a new generation.  Yuba City now had Living Proof.

Later that night, I asked people to come to Christ.  The response was immediate and effortless.  A flood of young souls rushed to the front.  What a resounding rebuke to those “experts” who say American youth don’t want Christ.

How do I describe Living Proof Yuba City?  For the next 4 nights it was souls and miracles.  All ages, cultures and races came to experience the ultimate miracle in Christ.When a Mayor and an evangelist work together copy

What healings have been reported?  You name it.  Cancer, diabetes, emphysema, and a host of life threatening diseases have vanished before the mighty hand of God.

Three people left their wheelchairs.  One man left his wheelchair and started dancing with his daughter!  At one point a blanket of power covered the crowd, and you could hear shouts of victory that pain and sickness was evicted from bodies everywhere.

But again, the real story of Living Proof Yuba City is about lost souls turning to God.  I looked out at the audience and saw a grandmother holding her sobbing teenage granddaughter.  The young girl saw miracles and felt power.  She and so many others like her were overtaken by hope and surrendered to Christ.

Friday night! The temperature at 7 PM was 106 degrees—WE WERE IN A TENT!  The scorching heat did not kill our attendance.  Instead, it was the biggest night with the greatest harvest.

Friday

A generation that walked in darkness has found that life is not a cruel accident; the universe is not a cold, abandoned expanse.  They have found their FATHER, a father who will care for them and lead them.

This is a good time to give you more good news:  We made our goal of $100,000!  I am so grateful to all who gave.  Living Proof is now our unambiguous present and future.

Doors are blasting open. Gay marriage, racial violence and a host of other issues are making our phones ring.  The invitations are consistently about turning the tide of immorality in America.   They want a Living Proof Crusade because it is more than words; it demonstrates the power of God.July 5

By redefining marriage, the Supreme Court violated the constitution. Justice Roberts even admitted, “This had nothing to do with the constitution.”  This blatant attack on the Bible raised the level of urgency level for Living Proof among pastors.

You, my friend, are in a unique position.  You can give to advance our cause and see to it that we seize every open door for the Gospel.  Your bold gift of love will have more impact now that it has ever had before.

Pastor Jim Carpenter said this about Living Proof Yuba City: “There is a dramatic shift in the atmosphere of our region.  Sleepy churches have been jolted by the signs and wonders; the streets feel the change; people who were walking by the tent to go get their drugs were instead pulled inside by the unseen hand of God and delivered. This community will never be the same.”

WHEN A MAYOR AND AN EVANGELIST TEAM UP TO IMPACT A CITY

WHEN A MAYOR AND AN EVANGELIST TEAM UP TO IMPACT A CITY

By Mario Murillo

When a Mayor and an evangelist work together copy

John Dukes, Mayor of Yuba City, and I are bound by different covenants.  It is his job to faithfully execute his oath of office.  It is my job to obey a heavenly vision.  We are both servants of God and where our callings meet is in the genuine desire to help Yuba City.

In this current time of national division, it takes courage for any civic leader to declare that the Gospel holds the greatest hope for a community.  John has stood before the crowd night after night to declare his belief in miracles and the power of the Gospel to make a city better.

At no time does he try to divide or abuse his authority as mayor.  He is building a consensus among various groups for the good of the city.  To him, this is a logical part of that goal.

He recognizes, as I do, the fever in government today to silence the benefit of faith in the fight against addiction and crime.  We believe it is time for government to let God work in our nation.  It is insane to ignore the power of God to handle our deepest crisis as a nation.

He and I are taking a bold step of faith.  We are teaming up to prove what Jesus can do for a city.  It is our prayer that the results will be so undeniable that it will help remove the stigma of religion and silence those who hate God in our government.

But the lesson here is not just for anti-God politicians, it is also for Christians.  For reasons that are too numerous to list, many Christians have been afraid to show the power of God to society.

There is a deliberate attempt in these meetings to eschew emotionalism without losing fervor.  We want Jesus to overshadow the method so that people will see miracles in plain view.  We get out of God’s way so that He could demonstrate His love and power in a way that main street will admit…something real is happening…it is the key to our children’s future and our way of life.

We are not here to colonize Yuba City.  We are here to be a helping hand to the downtrodden and forgotten among us.  We have no agenda, just a Savior.  We are to go about doing good deeds.

Healing is one of those good deeds.  A piercing example of this is Peter before the Sanhedrin, after the paralyzed man was healed at the gate, Beautiful.  Acts 4:8, “Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, ‘Rulers of the people and elders of Israel: 9 If we this day are judged for a good deed done to a helpless man, by what means he has been made well, 10 let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole.’” 

Teaming up for the good of a city is a wonderful thing.  It has already produced important results.  We believe that the best is yet to come.  Please pray for Living Proof Yuba City!

P.S.  We are gearing up for a fresh outreach to Yuba City.  The tent is gone but the fire still burns brightly.  Get ready for the next phase of this miracle of God.  We will be announcing the next series of Living Proof Yuba City very soon.
