Breaking News

In a startling new development, I am able to make this announcement: something that has just happened that will dramatically enhance Living Proof California.
I am rejoicing right now! 2 Chronicles 29:36 says, “And Hezekiah rejoiced, and all the people, that God had prepared the people: for the thing was done suddenly.” Suddenly, we have a new opening night for Living Proof California.
We were not scheduled to begin until March 10th. But that has now been changed because of an amazing breakthrough. We have added a city, Manteca! Marysville will still happen on March 10th-16. But here’s more on what has just happened:
The City of Manteca made a historic request of Frank Saldana and Inner City Action. You know that Frank and his team are the ones who set up our crusade tent and do so much of the groundwork for the Living Proof Crusades.
Anyway, the city made a request of Frank and his team to do something extraordinary. Here is how the Manteca/Ripon Bulletin Newspaper reported it: “The Stockton-based non-profit with a solid history of helping resource and providing alternatives for homeless in Manteca, is securing a special events permit to pitch a rival tent in the parking lot of the old Qualex building owned by the city at 555 Industrial Park Drive. Inner City Action and the Manteca Police community resource officers have been reaching out to the homeless asking if they would be interested and open to assistance in a revival tent setting. They reported that a large number have replied in the affirmative.”
A large number of the homeless are coming to our tent! Frank called to tell me this miracle and I said, “Let’s not wait! Let’s join forces and bring in a massive harvest—not just of the homeless but the entire community. LET’S MAKE THIS SUNDAY AT 6 PM THE OPENING NIGHT OF LIVING PROOF CALIFORNIA!”

We are combining forces to seize this unprecedented favor. The tent is already up! Teams are reaching out and feeding, clothing and providing opportunities for the needy to get lasting help. The tent is already up with Inner City Action doing events throughout the days. To find out more about what they are doing go to  http://www.innercityaction.org/
Our team will join them this Sunday Night. I am bringing a message to the people of California from the Lord. The Holy Spirit will confirm His word with signs, wonders, and miracles. I can’t control my excitement. Just writing the words LIVING PROOF CALIFORNIA BEGINS THIS SUNDAY NIGHT CAN MAKE ME SHOUT!
California needs an astounding intervention of God. Please do not sit on the sidelines. If you live near Manteca do what you have to in order to be at the historic opening night! No matter what pray for this epic breakthrough.
THIS SUNDAY NIGHT JANUARY 27TH 6 PM 555 INDUSTRIAL PARK DRIVE MANTECA CA

IS TRUMP TOO RUDE?

The president wrote, “If I ever meet you on the street, you’re going to need a new nose job and a supporter below.”  At a Jewish Seminary in New York, he blurted out “I am King Cyrus!”  The thing is that wasn’t Trump…
It was President Harry Truman.  Okay, here’s a president who puts his intention to commit felony assault in writing—imagine that tweet! 
He essentially calls himself the reincarnation of King Cyrus—delusional?
Oh, and did you know he tried to get power to draft an entire labor union into the Army to punish them for striking?  Trump is tame by comparison.
Imagine what CNN would do to Harry Truman today, if Harry was a republican. 
Mark Twain said, “facts are a stubborn thing.”  It’s a fact Richard Nixon and Lyndon Johnson nursed greater hatred for the media in their day than Trump does today.

 

This historical perspective shows us Trump is not the madman, the media needs him to be.   
Notice I said need.  They need to destroy him.  It is a bottomless need.  It is a need so intense it consumed all rational journalism.  Facts are irrelevant. Any good Trump does must be ignored or twisted into evil.  They have sold their souls.  Alec Baldwin said, “there is no way to be too nasty to Trump.”
The need has reduced them to pathetic, blithering automatons who must tell the most trivial lies about him: killing goldfish, and how many scoops of ice cream he takes.
Instead of learning from the spanking they got during the election—they increased the dosage of venom.  It’s no longer about ratings—as CNN so eloquently proves—it is only about destroying Trump, even if it means self destruction.
A football player gets punched but the ref doesn’t see it, but he does see the victim punch back and flags him?  Times a million, welcome to Trump’s world.  
Not only is Trump not crazy.  Not only are his outbursts understandable.  He has behaved with greater restraint than his predecessors who could never imagine this tyranny of fake news. -Mario Murillo

1. Truman letter to Paul Hume:

“Mr. Hume:

“I’ve just read your lousy review of Margaret’s concert. I’ve come to the conclusion that you are an ‘eight ulcer man on four ulcer pay.’

“It seems to me that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for it shows conclusively that you’re off the beam and at least four of your ulcers are at work.

“Someday I hope to meet you. When that happens, you’ll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!

“[Newspaper columnist Westbrook] Pegler, a gutter snipe, is a gentleman alongside you. I hope you’ll accept that statement as a worse insult than a reflection on your ancestry.”

Breaking News about California

This will be the result of years and years of preparation. The time is now the place is the Central Valley of California. If you can’t grasp why this is so strategic then you have not been watching our nation unravel. At this moment, the government of California has made it a goal to transform every person in the state into a post-Christian world.
Sacramento has no intention of making life better for Americans in the State. Their radical agenda is all about spending and essentially looting the middle class in California.
Gavin Newsom is barely Governor and is already buying ads in battle ground states to attack Trump. He is on a crusade to get Trump impeached.  The reason I bring this up is show you that what is happening transcends politics. This is a war on a way of life.
It doesn’t matter if you are Democrat or Republican. What they are doing to the people of California—especially youth—should enrage all sides.
What is at stake here is the very future of our children. And it is even worse than that: your Christian child is already in the cross hairs of a gender revolution that will bully them into submission. Bible faith will be openly ridiculed. And like an ominous shadow of the Book of Revelation…their economic future be conditional on their submission to the agenda.

Already, the symptoms of leftist ideology that have ruined so many nations have turned vast parts of the State into poverty, crime and despair. None of these things matter to the elite that love to appear to be for the people.
These leaders see themselves as revolutionaries bent of spreading a movement away from God and toward socialism. The future for the church in California is—without any doubt—one of controlled speech and regulated activity. Believe me, the Bill of Rights won’t matter.
The dream that let me see Highway 99 from heaven’s perspective with a river of revival and healing flowing overwhelms me every hour of the day. I have no illusions about my role. I am only one preacher with one very clear mandate.
From the day that I first step foot on the U.C. Berkeley Campus in 1970, until this moment, God had been preparing me for something. I saw the weed of Marxism germinate in the heart of American youth. I knew it was a cancer. I knew it would bring freedom to an end if it was not stopped.
I also knew no human political platform could stop it. The miracle that diffuses the spell of wicked socialism happens in the heart. A witness must be given.
Mario Murillo Ministries is not the savior of California. Only Jesus Christ is! However, we have endured decades of honing and training to face this zero hour in California.
Our tent will rise if key parts of the Central Valley beginning in Marysville this March.  We are asking the Lord for an outpouring of His Spirit that will scatter devils to the four winds and set the captives free.
At this moment, I am pleading with you to join our cause. This is not a funding raising letter although your gifts would be greatly appreciated. No, this blog is about churches, intercessors, and workers.
Jesus said to pray the Lord of the harvest that He would send workers.  My prayer is that you will use the link at the end of this message to take a stand against the destruction of America and for lost souls to meet Jesus.

What do I need now? I need pastors to come alongside and help. These precious young souls who will saved from untold darkness need loving families to disciple them. We need an army of workers to assist in praying for the sick to be healed—to give away the vast supply of food and clothing we aim to deliver into the hands of the poor.
It is time for our Christian faith to activate! It is time to leave the safe zones.  I am not guaranteeing these meetings will turn California around. Although I know they can. What I do guarantee is that your life will be changed dramatically by praying and working with us.  I also guarantee that these nights in the tent will be the mightiest demonstration of the power of God in our history.
Do you live anywhere near these Hwy 99 cities?  Paradise, Oroville, Marysville, Sacramento, Stockton, Manteca, Modesto, Turlock, Los Banos, Merced, Fresno, Visalia, and Bakersfield? Then click on the link to let us know you will help redeem this time for Jesus.  Even if you live far from California you can seek God for miracles, favor, tent sites, food, clothing and many other desperately needed miracles.
Thank you for reading this. I am asking God to set your hear on fire right now!
Remember even if you live far away you can at least pray. California effects the world. Click on this link to join our movement. Act now!

WHY IT WILL BACKFIRE

Emboldened by overstated victories, and the madness of the media, the Democrat party will persecute the church with abandon.  I believe we’ll see it almost immediately. The mood—the one that pleases people when Christians are harassed and blamed, is upon us.  I am warning you it’s about to spike, and the mindless ferocity of it will surprise you.

A moment like this is recorded in the Book of Acts: Acts 12:1-3, “Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. 2 Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3 And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter also.”

As I prayed, I experienced colliding emotions of dread and excitement.  The Holy Spirit made it clear that persecution against Christians is going to spike in the United States in the next few months.  He also made it clear that this would touch off a towering flow of miracles of healing.

Satan wants America destroyed.   It is the grand prize.  With America gone, the devil can unleash worldwide devastation.   But the global tyranny that he craves cannot happen until the American firewall is removed.

He also knows that he can only destroy America from within.  Somehow, he must pit us against each other. 

The only deterrent to civil war at this point is Christianity.  Notice that I do not say the church, I say Christianity.  The church is sidelined by equal parts division and denial.  The Christianity seeping out despite religion is the only thing protecting us.

The devil’s weapon of choice is hate.  He must foment hate.  Today, that hate is coming from the very people claiming to be fighting hate: secular progressives, and social justice warriors.  You have seen how the things that were once loving, moral and trustworthy, including marriage, manhood, military service, freedom of speech, witnessing, the Bible and, yes, freedom itself, are now hateful.

 

God has been lovingly warning the American Church.  He has repeatedly ordered the church to stand as one against immorality, but she has flatly refused.  God now reserves the right to use persecution to wake up the church and spare the nation.

Is there any good news in this?  There is much good news, but only for a certain group.  The core of Christians who refuse to side with the compromised church, and who are seeking Jesus, will be protected and used mightily.  Persecution will backfire!

The boomerang effect is seen in ancient Israel.  Exodus 1:12 says “But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites.”

After Herod arrested Peter, an angel appeared and brought him out.  This miracle ignited the church.  I am telling you what the Holy Spirit has told me.  Every vessel that seeks God right now will receive greater power and greater miracles.

Call it legend, call me crazy, but I know that this wave of persecution is here.  We can turn it all around.  We can regain lost ground.  Those who disobey God cannot escape this misery and those who obey God will granted special grace and increased supernatural power.

Paul wrote to a worried Philippian church to tell them about the shock outcome of his imprisonment.  It serves as a promise to us of what is about to happen as a result of persecution in America.

Philippians 1:12 “And I want you to know this, dear brothers: Everything that has happened to me here has been a great boost in getting out the Good News concerning Christ. 13 For everyone around here, including all the soldiers over at the barracks, knows that I am in chains simply because I am a Christian. 14 And because of my imprisonment, many of the Christians here seem to have lost their fear of chains! Somehow my patience has encouraged them, and they have become more and more bold in telling others about Christ.”

Writing about the book of Acts Church Matthew Henry said this:  “The persecution that was designed to extirpate the church was by the overruling providence of God made an occasion of the enlargement of it. Christ had said, I am come to send fire on the earth; and they thought, by scattering those who were kindled with that fire, to have put it out, but instead of this they did but help to spread it.” Amen!

 

A Dream Over California

I told the Lord I wanted to reach America. I immediately felt this in my spirit, “Then you must reach California.”

Five years ago, while preaching in Stockton, I had a vivid dream—the kind where you don’t know if you are awake or asleep.  I saw Highway 99. I saw it from Red Bluff all the way to Southern California. This artery of the great central valley is special to God. In the dream I saw a river—Ezekiel’s river flowing with great healing properties, trees of righteousness on both banks. The voice in my dream said, “This is a corridor of glory.”

I did not understand why I was getting this dream. It was hidden in the Spirit until just recently. It portends a miracle of a magnitude I can’t fathom. Especially when you consider the condition of Sacramento, Silicon Valley and Hollywood.

At this moment, these bastions of California have declared war—war on the Federal Government—war on the church, and has even declared war on science. For that matter, it has declared war on anyone or anything that disagrees with their radical agenda.

How far gone are California leftists? At his own inauguration, Governor Gavin presented neither a vision nor a plan for the nation state—he simply flew into a rant against President Trump and emphasized that California is a total sanctuary state.

Silicon Valley alone possesses power that boggles the mind. This bastion of technology and social media controls information like no other agency on earth. Right now, social media is an unchallenged mouthpiece to billions for leftist atheists.

Their power to brainwash young minds is beyond staggering. They have the power to shut down any voice they wish—and the voices they shut down are notably Christian, conservative, and patriotic. Facebook shut down Franklin Graham! If that doesn’t give you a chill, nothing will. If they won’t hesitate to silence the chief voice of Evangelical Christianity…what will they do to the rest of us?

California Assembly Bill 2943 has been delayed. It’s the bill that will ban the Bible by coming in through the back door. It means to ban any literature that suggests help for a gay lifestyle.

Faith doesn’t matter, fact doesn’t matter, science doesn’t matter and now, outcome doesn’t matter either. Sacramento politicians are one big never mind. Never mind that California is dead last in education and a slew of other quality of life categories. Never mind that they are spending like a thief with a stolen credit card. Never mind that innocent people are murdered by illegals they protect from being arrested.

California politicians, tech moguls, Hollywood and media have made an unmistakable declaration. They will remake America in the miserable and decrepit image of California. The are the black hole that can suck a nation into its abyss.

What can we possibly do about all this? What we do is put our natural mind aside and obey God!  What God says will stand. What God commands will triumph over the enemy. Never forget that California has been the catalyst to historic revivals and has launched worldwide Christian ministries. Those wells are still in the heart of California.

That dream has lain dormant in my spirit until now, when God said, “If you want to reach America, you must reach California.”

Here and now, I am announcing to you Living Proof California. Living Proof will follow the route I saw in my dream. We will set up our tent in key cities starting in the north and working our way south along Highway 99.

If you live in or near the cities of Paradise, Marysville, Sacramento, Modesto, Turlock, Los Banos, Fresno, and Bakersfield listen carefully: the tent is coming to a site near you.

It all begins in March in Marysville and will continue south like a mighty river of healing and salvation. Will these crusades turn California around? That is totally in God’s hands. What I do know is the Lord will hit demons hard in California. All we can do, and must do, is obey the voice of God.”

I am asking you to obey God by starting to pray right now. Pray for favor to finalize our permits on the very best sites. Pray for the workers to come into the harvest. Pray for protection as we expect high resistance from the enemy. Pray for abundant provision because we will be investing massive amounts of money to make this invasion possible.

The urgent message of this newsletter is this: The best way to touch America right now is to invade California. I couldn’t understand that at first, but now I do. It is the way of God to take the fight directly to the main threat.  I am hoping, with a great hope, that you will see this.

Acts 4:29-30 says, “Now Lord Behold their threats and grant to your servants that with all boldness they may preach Your word while you stretch out Your hand to heal and let signs and wonders be done in the name of Your Holy Son Jesus.”

California is a great threat to America. This state may have deep perversion and intellectual arrogance, but none of these things can withstand the mighty power of God. The Holy Spirit is at work to empower and guide a mighty invasion of California’s Central Valley. Pray! Get involved.  No matter where or what country you live in…you can pray! I feel a miracle on the horizon.  Click the link  below if you want to be a part of Living Proof California!  Details coming soon!

I want to be a part of Living Proof California

Manufactured crisis

I sat in disbelief. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Before I could even write this, I needed to pray and settle my spirit. I needed to see if I had imagined this or if they actually said the things they said.

Who said it ? Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. What did they say? First of all, they said that President Trump manufactured a crisis. They said in front of thousands of people who lost loved ones to murderers–murderers who had no right roaming among innocent Americans. Murderers that Nancy and Chuck still protect.

What is truly cold-blooded is that they know they are lying. They know we know they are lying. They stood there embalmed of all human decency and robotically reeled off their talking points.

No compassion. Not even a nod to those whose husbands, wives, sons, daughters, moms and dads were taken from them. Women were raped, beaten to death with a hammer—neighbors shot, beheaded, dismembered—a young police officer shot and killed the day after Christmas by a man who could not be arrested in Nancy’s home sanctuary state of California. Most of them killed Americans after several arrests and deportations.

The real victims, said Nancy and Chuck, are the federal workers who won’t get paid this Friday. But they will not lose a penny. They will be paid in full when this shutdown ends. However, none of the real victims of the crisis will get their loved ones back.

What kind of a mind can draw a moral equivalence between a family that has lost a loved one to murder and a worker who at worst is having their paycheck delayed? That is bad enough. But what about Chuck and Nancy who think the unpaid federal workers are the greater victims?

The worst part of tonight is that it confirmed that most horrifying thing about America. Their smug, dismissive, intelligence insulting tone, confirmed that our nation is run by an elite class who deem themselves above any accountability or the rule of law.  An elite class that themselves, live behind walls and are guarded by men with the guns, the same guns they want to take away from us. This elite class is served by everything from the media, to late night sock puppet hosts, and Hollywood.

What you saw tonight should enrage you. They stood there and told you that they don’t accept Trump’s facts. They make up of the facts. They issued the only reality we are allowed to believe. They told you that you are too stupid and unworthy to draw any other conclusion than the official one that we give you.  Look closely at their expression it says, “when we want your opinion, we’ll give it to you.”

Trump is a true outsider. That is the root of all the hatred toward him. He shocked the denizens of the Washington swamp by actually keeping his promise. We all know that Chuck and Nancy voted for the wall but only changed their minds because Trump won. They have no motive but hate. They have no plan but to oust Trump.

The wall must be built not just for national security but for national sanity. At some point the people need to see the president they elected exercise the platform that won him that election. If ever a man needed to hold his ground on a matter it is Donald Trump. Do not give in Mr. President. Never!

BRAVE CHURCHES

The way some experts talk you’s think turning a church around is a long hard road. But here is a solution much faster than we realize.  First, we must fix a grave mistake. Closing the altars, ordering people to tone it down, and focusing on recovery programs brought a crowd.  However, what if that crowd leaves with no power to face our toxic culture? Let people experience the power and glory of God at the altar. Train people to wait in prayer with them. Sound simplistic?

Right now we are awash in advisory sermons. The titles are similar and predictable: “How to handle fear, uncertainty, finances, relationships, marriage, and children.”   We are drowning in whiteboards, blackboards, statistics, PowerPoint presentations, props, and illustrations.

The problem is, the anger, division, loud perversion and persecution, people face outside the church make these teachers and their instructive messages are woefully inadequate.  What happened?  The answer is…life.   Life happened and it is gripping believers in deep need for something more than words.  You would be shocked to know how many would trade all the witty messages for a pure dose of the presence, power, and glory of God.

Happy face sermons do not give power over a time like this.   What is happening now runs off the over-optimistic maps drawn in pulpits. Tragedies can uproot  these neat formulas like a palm tree in a hurricane.   Hip theories will collapse like a brick house in an earthquake.

Every honest Pastor can report causalities in their church.  Many who were once vibrant soldiers, today languish in a shadow existence.  They are out of church, disconnected from their former passion and sick in body and soul.  The ongoing political debate and demonstrations have only added to the crisis. The conflicting opinions of church leaders leave the army of God baffled and vulnerable.

Why are we surprised that modern believers suddenly need more?  The power that could answer a thousand questions and extinguish a myriad of personality ills has been ushered out of church.

Paul’s cure was simple: an undeniable encounter with the fire of God…”that your faith should not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. -1 Corinthians 2: 5.

The answer to fear today is to burn it out!  Just for shock value, I’ll use this phrase…perfect love casts out fear but so does perfect fear.  No doubt many will think it is crazy to take a wonderful verse like 1 John 4:18 “perfect love casts out fear” and mess it up.  But I am not messing it up I am fulfilling it!

PERFECT FEAR DOES CAST OUT FEAR!  We have downplayed and even banned something that Christians desperately need.

Go back with me to 758 B.C.  Isaiah the prophet enters the Temple in fear for his life.  The tide of public opinion has turned against him.  The death of his friend and protector King Uzziah has put the finishing touch on 5 years of ministry that was just treading water.  His despair is now complete. He is enters the Temple looking for comfort from God.

He kneels in prayer, resting his elbows on the altar seeking solace from the storm. Instead, the building starts quaking, knocking his elbows so that he is now punching himself in the face.

He looks up and sees Seraphim:  Angels of fire, fire that burns hotter and brighter than any sun. They tower over him from each end of the altar.

Their voices roar, vibrate, boom and dislodge the mighty beams of the Temple!  “HOLY, HOLY, HOLY, IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.  THE WHOLE EARTH IS FILLED WITH HIS GLORY!”  Back and forth, again and again, they blast this mighty proclamation until Isaiah could not bear the fright!

The mighty God Himself stands before Isaiah unfurling the indescribable train of His Glory!  The prophet convulses beneath weight of glory.  From his bone marrow came an all-consuming cry… “WOE IS ME!”

The startling effect of the Glory of God—a wonder working fear—overrules human fear.   No threat matters now.   This demonstration of Glory conquered his suffering.   Isn’t this exactly what Paul meant?: “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” -Romans 8:18.   Of course Paul is speaking of the final GLORY…but it is a part of our birthright to have earthly collisions of glory: “But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all.”-1 Corinthians 12: 7   An overarching, fear destroying encounter is the legacy of every child of God.  “But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all

The twelve disciples were gripped by fear of the storm.  But when Jesus rebuked the storm their fear of drowning was replaced with an awestruck wonder.  They exclaimed: “what manner of man is this that even the wind and the sea obey Him!?”

We are told that General Patton won battles because his men were more afraid of him than the Germans.   Again, ours is not a negative fear but the  holy awe born from the manifestation of God’s glory.

This truth reinforces the fact that “Perfect love casts out Fear”  because love disciplines, love gives us what we need… and what we need today is a not subtle pat on the head.   We need a fear-killing encounter!  Solomon said in Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.”

Why are we blocking people from experiencing the fire of God?  Why would we keep this miracle from people?   I am talking about fire—fire that keeps them from the evil one—fire that forges a reverence, and turns them into your best soldiers.

We should have made room and time for people to be filled to prevailing levels of the Holy Spirit and fire.  If we had, we would not be nursing hordes of Christians on life support. We would have an unstoppable army!

There is still time to reverse course.  If you have never been drenched by God then obey Him and seek to be overcome by His Glory.  If you have received in the past now is the time for FRESH FIRE!

Just one believer who walks out of your church endued with power from on high will be a contagious force to grow your church in both quantity and quality.
