Bob Klen was dying from a rare form of leukemia. Doctors said he had a 20% chance to survive. He sat in the back with his son and then something happened—something that would change everyone who was there forever.
It happened on a Sunday in 2004 at New Life Church in Houston, Texas. I was preaching a message called the Radical Middle. Bob had come for an uplifting word. He had just gotten devastating news. This was not the sermon he was looking for.
The news that shattered his life was that chemo did not work against the rare form of leukemia that was killing him. His doctors referred him to alternative medicine at M.D. Anderson. This grim news was a double hit. Not only were his options down to nontraditional methods but his insurance would not cover the massive cost of his treatment.
He came to church with his son under the weight of this news. The video will tell you what happened next. Watch the video. You should not deny yourself an amazing experience. Also, please share this post! All of the Glory goes to our Lord Jesus Christ.
One of our regular donors wrote: “How could you go to Bethel in Redding?! I can no longer support you” They withdrew their monthly support to help me win souls. Now, I will answer their question with a question.
We better start talking to each other
By Mario Murillo
One of our regular donors wrote: “How could you go to Bethel in Redding?! I can no longer support you” They withdrew monthly support that helps me win souls. Now, I will answer their question with a question.
How could I not go? Bill Johnson is my closest brother. I grew up with the Johnsons. Earl Johnson was like my dad. Earl gave me one of my very first revival meetings in 1970.
How could I not go? When Mechelle and I were divorced and churches slammed the door in our faces, it was Bill who never wavered and stood with us until, our marriage was miraculously restored 11 years ago.
How could I not go? I want to save America. I stand before thousands of young students at the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry—students on fire and yearning to be used of God—students who are teachable. We desperately need young soldiers to expand our outreaches, and they need an outlet for their fervor. I would rather calm them down a little than to try to resurrect some cold, dead cynical student from a stuffy, skeptical, Christian College.
How could I not go? Bethel is a growing force in the Body of Christ that cannot be dismissed.
Our nation is in the most dangerous condition I have seen in my lifetime. Satan is raging through our culture with virtually unobstructed access to your children. The church meanwhile is sidelined for stupid reasons. The Holy Spirit is grieved that we cannot pool our considerable talents and resources to overwhelm the enemy. Signs and wonders would flow on a dramatically higher level if national eldership flowed in humble unity.
Face to face meetings automatically dial down divisions—polarity declines wherever communication begins.
I could use debate skills to make a case for glaring doctrinal error in everybody from the Assemblies of God to Calvary Chapel. If that statement offends you…look out! The greatest heresy is to believe you have achieved doctrinal purity.
That everyone is off on some point of theology is no excuse for heresy—it is motivation for hope. To correct error, let’s start with our own. Jonathan Edwards said,” A true saint is suspicious on nothing more than his own heart.”
Not only that, much of what we hear comes from unreliable sources. In other instances, words were said or written in a moment of excitement. Perhaps, with brotherly and sisterly love the people we criticize would tell us “I never said that,” or, “I am sorry, I’ll take that back. I should have said that better.”
There are many false teachers and false prophets roaming America. That is a different matter. They need to be exposed. Sin needs to be exposed. However, we will not rightly discern truth from error while we are painting with the broad brush of doctrinal paranoia. I know you have seen the hilarious websites where “truth warriors” list everyone they think is a heretic. Almost everyone is on that list and it grows daily.
Another big question is this: are we moved by anger rather than true discernment? Did that former partner of ours let their feelings about Bethel supersede their love for lost souls?
It’s not just heresy hunters that are a threat. Every preacher who grows more isolated from other leaders is also a threat. Instead of talking to each other, preachers continue to throw red meat to their base. This is why we are getting further away from each other. The grace camp keeps getting more hyper. The repentance camp keeps getting more judgmental. The prosperity camp keeps getting more materialistic. The seeker camp casts increasing doubt on the Bible to gain acceptance from the mainstream public.
Preaching your pet doctrine to the exclusion of all others helps to kill America. Ignoring the rest of the Body as you expand your empire is a betrayal of Christ—no matter why you do it.
Bottom line: If you are not alarmed by destruction of the presidency—If you do not see the iron-curtain of mind control ringing down on our colleges—If you do not see the killing fields of drug gangs expanding in our inner cities—If you are blind to the avalanche of immorality and perversion—If you cannot see that time is running out, or that business as usual means certain death…then, you my friend, are an enemy to revival and America.
We need to pray together. We need to obey God together. But first, we better start talking to each other…fast.
Special note: We fully expect to extract an entire generation of young people out of addiction and violence to turn America back to Jesus. I am imploring you to pray for my team and me as we make this historic inroad to the youth culture in the places where they are being enslaved and killed.
What is about to happen in Bakersfield matters to us all. It marks our entry into the inner cities of America with mass healing miracle rallies called Living Proof. The gigantic step of faith we are taking in Bakersfield will echo into cities across our nation.
At the very least you can pray. If you live within a hundred miles of Bakersfield, please join our cause. The most important way for you to be involved is to bring someone to this epic event.
There are multiple ways for you to be involved. The first step is to call 661 322 4673 right now!
Below is the press release about Living Proof Bakersfield.
Moving Bakersfield beyond violence and division
Mario Murillo and Manuel Carrizales are teaming up to move Bakersfield beyond violence and division. They intend to prove this at an exciting 3-day event in the Harvey Auditorium.
Some say that their claims of moving Bakersfield past violence and division would take a miracle. That is exactly what Mario and Manuel are expecting: A miracle. Here’s why you should take them seriously:
Manuel Carrizales: Since 1991, Manuel Carrizales and Stay Focused Ministries have seen miracles all over Bakersfield. The city sees his powerful television show several times a day. Every week he leads as many as 24 assemblies in the public schools that are famous for their lasting impact on students. His after school mentoring program is considered one of the most effective in the nation. His ministry won the 2016 Nonprofit of the year award from the 34th Congressional district of the State of California.
Through seemingly impossible odds Manuel and Liz Carrizales were used by God to build this amazing ministry. Now they expect an even greater miracle.
Mario Murillo: Mario Murillo rose from poverty in the Mission District of San Francisco. After being revolutionized by Christ, he felt a call to the University of California at Berkeley.
His attempts to communicate were repeatedly rejected. This led him to pray a prayer that would define the rest of his life. “If you called me to this campus, you must help me.” The help arrived in stages. It began with words—a way of saying things that were different than audiences were accustomed to—that seemed to tumble out of his mouth. A small group of students quickly grew to a regular crowd of hundreds.
Then something else happened: students began to report healings. They would testify, that in the Name of Jesus, their sickness had vanished. Now thousands began to attend his rallies.
His international ministry was launched after a 4-day conference in San Jose California extended for 6 months with a total attendance of nearly 250,000 people. Since then Mario’s voice has been heard by millions around the world, bringing a message that zeroes in on the hurts of society.
Witness living proof of the power of God to break addiction, violence, and sickness.
I want to explain a coming disaster and the plan God has given me to face it and reverse its damage for the glory of Christ.
I have a plan
By Mario Murillo
Many people have a dream. I have a plan. A plan is more powerful than a dream because a plan turns a dream into reality. You cannot overstate the importance of planning. If you do not have a plan, someone else’s plan will control you.
Planning pulls the future into the present. It gives you advance power over trouble that is heading your way.
The hardest part of planning is to let go of things that worked 5 years ago—no matter how nostalgic a method may be, you better know when the Holy Spirit says to let it go.
Maintaining intimacy with God is life and death to a ministry. You can put your ministry on cruise control and drift out of range of God’s voice. Churches have folded and ministries have closed because they were caught without a plan and failed to adapt.
A God plan is a weapon against approaching danger. Noah did not build the ark while it was raining. Only God can give us the right plan. I believe He has. God gave me an eye to see past the camouflage and warned me of impending danger.
I want to explain a coming disaster and the plan God has given me to face it and reverse its damage for the glory of Christ.
The coming disaster: Obama did many bad things to America. He stagnated our economy. His style of leading from behind fomented war and instability in the world. His sympathy for Islam created barriers to fighting terrorism. But the worst thing he did was to our children.
-The number of youth who claim to be atheists doubled in the 8 years he was in office.
-The entire social justice warrior snowflake agenda came on his watch. Colleges and universities declared war on free speech and opposing views. They saw racism and sexism in everything (even peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were called racist). Students began to feel micro-aggressions from anything that challenged their beliefs.
-He framed Islam—which executes women and gays—as less oppressive than the teachings of Jesus and millions of our youth bought the lie. He created a mindset of hypocrisy and contradiction.
-He made government god. He grew government with a stolen credit card and laid a $20 trillion debt on the backs of our children.
He took away their hope and cut them off from the source of life. Check out what our children are saying now:
42% said they will never own a house or have a meaningful job.
34% said they will have a lower standard of living than their parents
58% say that asking for help will not solve their problems.
44% do not know what to believe.
Young America’s Foundation released its annual Youth Misery Index and found it at a record high. “Over the course of Obama’s presidency, the YMI has spiked an alarming 29.9 points, an increase of 36 percent.”
This heart-wrenching disaster embodies the cry of a whole generation: 12-year-old Katelyn Nicole Davis from Cedartown, Georgia used Facebook Live on December 30th to live stream her suicide. As she hanged herself in her front yard, the video played for an entire 20 minutes.
I have a plan to prevent these tragedies. It is a plan that deserves a chance because it will work.
Here’s the plan:
–Appoint regional directors who will oversee ongoing soul-winning and follow-up. This will multiply our outreach tenfold. They will sustain relationships with local pastors and leaders, not only to retain our results, but to prepare for our return to these cities.
-Train and release an army to the front lines: We need workers who can pray for the sick in the streets—not just in auditoriums. These workers are beyond essential because they will bring in lost souls to our events. The great mistake today is to assume if you advertise, people will show up. Imagine 10,000 young people trained to go out and bring back the harvest!
–Take our internet media platform to the next level. Millions have read our blog and looked at our videos. This is not nearly enough. We must enhance our skills, technology and content for a new generation.
-Choose strategic sites for our events. We must be near the problem. We must be in a venue that is large enough to make an impact outside church walls. We must face reality: most Christian events draw only Christians. If we want the unchurched to come to our meetings we must be in halls that will attract them. Even though this triples our cost, it must be done or we will only preach to ourselves.
-Open a college in Reno for the next generation of American Evangelists. We dare not hoard 50 years of front line experience. Too many of our Christian colleges are teaching theories untested in true warfare. We must help shape the soul winners of tomorrow.
How do we know this plan will work? The most important way to judge if a plan will work is to look at the track record of the planner. Since our earliest breakthroughs in the radical campus at Berkeley, we have known how to invade the impossible. We know how to hire the best—give people the best training—adapt to current trends of the youth culture—use a fresh approach to share a timeless message—and release signs and wonders in the mainstream of the youth culture.
God said, “Choose 10 cities. Invest $1 million and you will start a movement—a national movement.” Where will I get a million dollars? The good news is that it is in the pockets and the bank accounts of those who receive this letter. The miracle is in releasing it. The miracle is in the Holy Spirit’s power to turn your good intentions into action.
This blog has never been about fundraising. It has been offered freely as a tool to inform and ignite action for the cause of Christ in America. Most of all, I ask for your prayers in this epic outreach that Jesus is forging through us. Nevertheless, your gifts of love are the reason this mission is possible. Thank you for being a part of this harvest.
Here is the one thing that will make all the difference in the world: First time givers! I am calling on you to donate to MMM if you have never done it before. No matter what, your gift will make a difference—it will make all the difference!
Of course, we need our loyal supporters to give and I am profoundly grateful to all of you. But the fact is thousands read this letter are on the sidelines…but if they get in the battle it will turn the tide of the war. I am not asking you for a million dollars (although, it would be wonderful to receive such a gift). I am asking for you to listen to your heart and invest in our children and grandchildren.
Many of you have seen revivals or had the honor of growing up in a powerful church. Shouldn’t the next generation get to see revival? I am not begging for money… I am begging for souls. This is all about your children and your grandchildren. Satan has pulled out all the stops to destroy them. Shouldn’t we open our hearts and our pocketbooks to save them? I have a plan—it will work—it deserves a chance—help me put it into action.

Breaking News from Mario Murillo and Todd White
Note: You must register by midnight Central Time Wednesday March 1st, 2017!
By Mario Murillo
Love him or hate him, Donald Trump has flipped the script for Christians in America.
Toppling political correctness created a dangerous and wonderful opportunity. We’ve not had an occasion like this since the Great Awakening in the 18th Century. If we obey God, we will see a greater revival than the Jesus movement. If we blow this, it will be an unqualified disaster.
If the forces on the left regroup, America could enter a spiritual nuclear winter. This moment has “ONE LAST CHANCE” written all over it.
How do we handle this one last chance? Paul grappled with the same question. He said, “For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.” -1 Corinthians 16:9
Not only do we have Trump, we are surrounded by prophetic words that promise a massive harvest. But, what will touch off the explosion that will sweep millions into the Kingdom?
Todd White and I are teaming up to ignite this explosion in you. A national miracle begins in one person—someone like you! Our deepest desire is to set fires of momentum and continual harvest.
Think about it! The church has plumbed the depths of personal blessing. We have been taught to death. What we need now is for all of that to be set on fire and to have it blaze forth into national repentance, healing, and blessing.
There has never been a good time to be a compromised Christian—but this is the worst time in history to be lukewarm.
This event will not only ignite it will commission you to do miracles in the name of Jesus.
Todd White was a drug addict and atheist for 22 years. He was at the point of suicide when God came into his life and set him free. Todd preaches the Gospel of the Kingdom everywhere he goes and God backs it up with signs following. Todd’s heart is to equip the church and activate them to live a 24/7 Kingdom Lifestyle by helping them to get out of the boat and brave the waves of fear, empowered by the Holy Spirit. Todd loves sharing the simplicity of the Gospel of the Kingdom and what Jesus Christ accomplished at the cross, which is the measuring stick of God’s love for us.
It is common for Todd to see dozens of people healed while he goes about his everyday life.
“This is every day for me,” Todd said. “When I go to restaurants or if I go to the mall, or anywhere for that matter, Jesus paid a price for all. So all are in and all are a target for the love of God.”
This is a call to everyone! No soldier of Jesus should thrash about in a pool of frustration. The Holy Spirit wants your life and ministry to be an uninterrupted flow of healing to the millions who grope in dark misery seeking hope and deliverance.
Join Todd and me in Houston. Think about it, you will attend a conference or a convention this year. Make your choice count. This convention is free but you must register. See you in Houston!

Right now, people are making their way to Houston by car and plane for an event this Sunday Night. If you ask them why, their answer may surprise you:They are coming to receive a healing miracle.
LIVING PROOF COMES TO HOUSTON
You may have heard of Mario Murillo. He does not claim to heal but he directs his audience to Christ to be healed. But there is so much more to this night than that.
Mario calls these nights Living Proof because he insists they should offer proof of the love and power of Jesus. He does not believe that you should check your brain at the door and be gullible.
Living Proof is not just a night of healing. It is a night that brings a message that pierces our culture and ignites moral awakening. Mario will speak directly to your heart about the things you face every day. He answers—from the Word of God—the questions people ask about these dark days.
You will feel freedom and order. The atmosphere is neither stuffy nor mindless emotion. For Mario, it is not enough for people to claim miracles, he believes that those who are healed must go to their doctors and verify their miracle.
The most common reaction to Living Proof is how different it is from what people expected.
Jesus proved that He was the Son of God by doing miracles that no one had ever done. He said that His works would not stop. We believe that His power extends to our day and can intervene in our most impossible situations. Come and see for yourself the amazing love and power of Christ.
Join us this Sunday night at 6: PM at New Life Church. There are plenty of free seats and lots of free parking. Come early for the best seats. Bring someone who needs a miracle. Come expecting your own miracle!
Check out this video that proves miracles last. This video from 1993 shows the moment that Howard Kratzer was healed. He is still healed 23 years later.
