I WILL NOT SLOW THE TRAIN TO THROW ROCKS AT THE BARKING DOGS

The locomotive is barreling down the tracks. Momentum at Mario Murillo Ministries is both stunning and humbling. The combination of starving souls on the streets, and an on-fire core of pastors and soldiers, portends a gigantic harvest of souls in California.

I began wondering what Satan was going to do. Sure enough, right on schedule, it came from a “news” agency—I won’t say their name, but it is an agency that makes news weak.

They did the classic hit piece, lies and all.

My flesh yearned to retaliate, because I had them dead to rights. Then something absolutely amazing happened. I remembered the Modesto Manifesto. I couldn’t believe how perfect this was, and I began to roar with laughter.

Billy Graham came to Modesto, California, early in his ministry. While there, the national press launched a blistering attack on Graham and his entourage. He gathered his team together and created a policy which they called the Modesto Manifesto. Among other things, they agreed that they would never respond in anger to the press.

How hilarious that this attack also came right before we are about to go to Modesto! I thought, “Devil, you are stuck in such a rut!”

But in this current environment, I find I must take it a step further than the Graham organization did. I will not just refuse to respond in anger to the press―I will not even talk to any Left-leaning news outlet or publication.

The world of 2021 is light-years from the world of 1948, when the Modesto Manifesto came into being. Back then, there were real journalists, but now, there are only paid defenders of the Democrat Party. Among those of the leftist media, there are no journalists, only mouthpieces, all following the same pre-written scripts.

Decades ago, in a normal interview for either a newspaper or a magazine, the questioner would ask to hear your side of the argument and then interview someone else who takes the other side of that argument, to be fair and balanced.

But now, when they interview you for television, it is very different. They are not there as an impartial host; they are there to call you a liar and to impose their truth.  They themselves embody the opposing argument, because their minds are already made up.

Look closely at this utterly dishonest question that George Stephanopoulos asked Rand Paul: “This election was not stolen—do you accept that fact?”

Rand Paul’s retort was correct, “George, you’re not so much a “journalist” as “a fool.” Adding, “Well, what I would say is that the debate over whether or not there was fraud should occur. We never had any presentation in court. Most of the cases were thrown out for lack of standing, a procedural way of not hearing it,” Breitbart noted.

He went on to say, “George, where you make a mistake is people coming from the liberal side like you — you immediately say everything’s a lie instead of saying there’s two sides to everything. Historically, what would happen is, I said I thought there was fraud, you would interview someone who said there wasn’t. Now you insert yourself in the middle and say the absolute fact is that everything I’m saying is a lie.”

The publication that did the hatchet job on MMM did exactly the same thing. They said I staunchly opposed the LGBTQ community having any rights. They had no quote where I ever said that. They relied solely on the fact that I take a Biblical stand on morality. To them it is settled science—a fact—that if you believe the Bible, you believe the LGBTQ community should have zero rights. See how it works?

There is simply no way to talk to the leftist media. They are not after the truth. They are only concerned with advancing their lies and crushing anyone who gets in their way.

My energy must be spent winning souls and seeing God heal the sick. Our momentum is too important to slow it down and become entangled in their nonsense.

The same applies to liberal churches who think we are being too direct with our message of salvation and healing, and believe that we are premature in having the tent wide open to the public. Again, I cannot slow down to answer their objections.

Nehemiah also refused to slow down and talk to the opposition: “So I sent messengers to them, saying, “I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down. Why should the work cease while I leave it and go down to you?” (Nehemiah 6:3)

Not only will the train not slow down―it is gaining speed. Thousands are praying for this miraculous open door. Hundreds are working hard to get lost souls and the sick to the tent. Every Saturday morning a rapidly growing Zoom Call bombards heaven with prayer.

The locomotive is charging toward John Thurman Field, in Modesto. We are 13 days away from opening the Living Proof Modesto crusade! I am announcing what I know to be true: this tent will be the site of great miracles. Do not miss a single night, if at all possible. I look forward to seeing you there!

California is on the verge of a statewide visitation. That is why I will never slow the train to throw rocks at the barking dogs.






 

P.S. A message to those who support Mario Murillo’s mission to America.

John Wesley started 700 churches on three continents. One of his edicts to his young preachers was this: Always bring books for the people that will help them to grow.

We found a way to both do that and win souls. As you can imagine, a blog with this much traffic can sell advertising—something we refuse to do. What we do, is offer you materials that are chosen because they can make you armed and dangerous for Christ. The proceeds from the book and flash drive go to soul winning.

Some are offended that we offer books at all. We hope they will try to understand the two-fold blessing of offering this material. Thank you.

Our current special offer features our two most popular items: Treasury flash drive and Vessels of Fire and Glory together plus a free surprise gift from Mario Murillo Ministries.

Free shipping! And again, the proceeds go to soul winning. Order now

PRAY FOR MODESTO!

THE MIRACLES IN MODESTO HAVE ALREADY BEGUN

It is Good Friday in Modesto. I have no doubt that both Satan and Hell are screaming, “Foul!” It is still a full two weeks before the tent goes up at John Thurman Field and souls—scores of them—are already being saved!

Frank Saldana and Carmine Azzato were a Holy Ghost, double-barreled shotgun, today. After we gave away prizes. After the haircuts, clothes, and food were shared, the people stayed to hear the Gospel.

Carmine told his amazing story—a journey in professional wrestling that spanned 24 years, in dozens of nations, and 9 world championships. But he said, “None of that kept me from trying to commit suicide 3 times.”

He went on to compare the souls of the audience and the valuable prizes we gave away. “These prizes are one of a kind, and to God you are one of a kind!” he said.  After he reached a crescendo of impact on the hearts of the people, he grabbed a towel and wiped the makeup off of his face declaring, “It is time for you to wipe off the mask!” And then, just like the pro tag team wrestler he is, he handed the mike to Frank Saldana.

Frank stood there, reflecting God the Father’s heart for the people. Building on Carmine’s soulwinning message, he appealed to them to come to Jesus. And they came. Out of that large crowd they tell me that 100 souls were saved. But as always, only God knows the real number.

Our volunteers, under the leadership of the team from Inner City Action, waded in and brought life, transformation and healing miracles to the hungry souls who obeyed the call to come to Christ.

(Editor’s note: Be sure to read Mario’s Sermon on Mary Magdalene.) https://mariomurilloministries.wordpress.com/2021/04/01/mary-magdalene-on-the-day-jesus-died-2/

All of the hard work; all of the prayers; all of the financial sacrifices by our partners, broke through today. One sowed. Another watered. But God gave the increase.

Forget about all the lies you have heard about California. The dictatorship of Hollywood, Silicon Valley and Democrat socialism is neutralized by the presence of God. Whether it is in a tent, in a park, or in a church—when the power of God is present, when the message is preached forcefully, full of truth, and full of love—chains break, and the soul is delivered from darkness into His marvelous light!

Brace yourself, because this is only the beginning! Hundreds have yet to report for duty on the streets of Modesto. Many powerful meetings are just beginning in this region. The people of God in the Modesto area got a crucial foretaste today of the harvest! A harvest that the devil does not want us to know is here. And soon the tent will be here!

Satan thought he had won when Christ was crucified, but soon, it was clear that he had made his worst mistake and his biggest miscalculation. So, the devil will find that after locking down the California churches, and pouring despair on the people, that all it did, was deepen the hunger for Jesus! If this is the precursor to the tent—then what has the Lord in store for us come Sunday April 18th?

I am personally inviting you to come to Modesto, join us, and help bring in this harvest!

BREAKING NEWS FROM MODESTO: TIME TO BRING BACK STREET MEETINGS

“Mario, tent crusades will not work in this day and age—especially not in California.” That was the voice of a highly respected minister. Then he gave me all kinds of reasons. His biggest reason to discourage me was this: “Tents do not work with modern audiences, but especially now that they are illegal.”

Well, God had other plans. He had plans to overrule human wisdom and to pour out His Spirit along Highway 99 in the Central Valley of California. A dream became reality, and in the process, destroyed all the “logic” of man.

Now that the tent crusade is back in California, it is time to bring something else back. The street meeting. I am not talking about a concert. I am not talking about a prayer meeting. I am talking about taking the gospel directly to the streets. Deliberately, setting up a stage in what some might call a “dangerous neighborhood,” and preaching a simple and direct soulwinning message.

Read this about the way street meetings were revolutionized by the Salvation Army:

“Soon after beginning his ministerial career in England in 1852, William Booth abandoned the concept of the traditional church pulpit in favor of taking the gospel of Jesus Christ directly to the people. Walking the streets of London, he preached to the poor, the homeless, the hungry, and the destitute.

“When fellow clergymen disagreed with Booth’s unconventional approach, he and his wife Catherine withdrew from the church to train evangelists throughout England. The couple returned to the East End of London in 1865, where many followers joined their fight for the souls of lost men and women. Within 10 years, their organization, operating under the name “The Christian Mission,” had over 1,000 volunteers and evangelists. 

“Thieves, prostitutes, gamblers, and drunkards were among their first converts to Christianity. And soon, those converts were also preaching and singing in the streets as living testimonies to the power of God.

“When Booth read a printer’s proof of the 1878 “Christian Mission” annual report, he noticed the statement “The Christian Mission is a volunteer army.” Crossing out the words “volunteer army,” he penned in “Salvation Army.” From those words came the basis of the foundation deed of The Salvation Army.

“From that point onward, converts became soldiers of Christ and were known then, as now, as Salvationists. They launched an offensive throughout the British Isles that, in spite of violence and persecution, converted 250,000 Christians between 1881 and 1885. Their message spread rapidly, gaining a foothold in America and soon after Canada, Australia, France, Switzerland, India, South Africa, Iceland, and Germany.”

Now, 136 years later, Frank Saldana and his team from Inner City Action and Mario Murillo Ministries are having our first major street meeting, tomorrow, on Good Friday! We will be on the streets in Modesto, CA, and we are hoping that as many as 1,000 people to gather in the streets to hear the unfiltered message of Jesus.

We will bless them with many things, food, clothing, and even a raffle. Someone will win a PS-5, another a valuable bicycle, and yes, someone will win $1,000 toward their rent. Why? That is the bait so we can tell them how to be free from drugs, poverty, and demonic power.  This is going to be amazing! But there is even more…


Former Pro Wrestler Carmine Azzato AKA Demolition BLAST (9 Time World Champion) will be there in person.  
Carmine was supernaturally healed in one of our outreaches of deafness in one ear. He lost his hearing during a match when his opponent slammed a folding chair against his head. Since his miracle, he has been totally on fire for Jesus and is one of our associate evangelists. He will tell his story as only he can. Then Frank Saldana will take the stage to make a powerful appeal for the lost to come to Christ.

Why didn’t you know about this sooner? Because we have been promoting this entirely among lost souls. You may want to come—if you do, come with us and minister to these beloved lost souls. At the very least pray for this incredible outreach. God bless you! I can’t wait to report to you what happens at this amazing soul winning event! It is time to bring back the street meetings.

Remember how close we are to the tent crusade and pray!! If you can–please bring someone who needs healing to the crusade. And especially remember to bring those who need to be set free by the Gospel of Christ! MM
