An Open Letter to California

 Why you should come for this one night.

By Mario Murillo

If you are facing illness and you are suffering through the current medical quagmire, this is urgent news.  I want you to join me for an unforgettable night of hope and power.  Let me explain more.

I want to share what I have experienced with you.  My experience with the power of Christ to heal began in the most unlikely place and at the most unpromising time.   Mine was not a backwater encounter among the uneducated.   It was in the light of day on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley during the free speech movement.

Jesus himself said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father”-John 14:12.   Those words haunted me and challenged me to answer one of the greatest questions I would ever ask myself:  How do I reach this campus?

What happened to me next did not just breakthrough on campus, but it ended up taking me around the world declaring the greatest news that mankind has ever heard.  There is not enough room here to give you a detailed account of how the healings began.

What matters right now is that you can receive healing and you can satisfy your soul about the reality of God.

I am not asking you to embrace dead religion or a cult.  Reality does not need hype or manipulation.  I am asking you to trade just one night of your life to open your heart to God and let Him give you a miracle inside and out.

Why you should bring someone to this night.  If someone you love is suffering physical illness, bring them and let us pray for them to receive a miracle.  Think of all that they have endured to try to get well.  Instead of waiting for hours in a cold atmosphere let them experience a loving, joyous, faith-filled atmosphere.

If someone you know is unchurched and is honestly seeking to know that God is real, bring them.  My message that night will not just touch the needs of the body but also of the soul.  This is a perfect opportunity for them to receive a miracle in their soul.

Why you should come if you are a Christian who yearns for revival in the Bay Area.  The impact of this night does not end with just healing miracles.  An army of love and light is forming from many churches in the area who are seeking an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  It is our deepest wish and expectation that the power of this night will flow out to the entire Bay Area.

It all adds up to a simple fact:  This is a night you do not want to miss and you will be thankful for the rest of your life that you made the effort to be with us.

Why God is Enraged by Dead Church Services

hands out

Why Dead Church Meetings Enrage God.

I believe in hell because Jesus believes in hell.  It is my opinion that a preacher who does not believe in hell is as useless and traitorous as a life guard who cannot swim.  However this blog is not a rant against preachers but about one of the most life altering moments for my preaching and ministry.  It was the day I saw why God is enraged by dead Church meetings.

It happened because I was utterly and totally revolutionized by a simple question.  Why would God ever place the fate of a lost soul in the hands of a dead meeting?  Consider that the average American will give church but one shot!  Think of that, we have a single chance to make an eternal impression.  That fact burns a hole in my heart!   Yes, I speak out against our government in blogs because I am a preacher and a patriot.  However, in the soul winning pulpit I will have none of that only the Gospel unleashed with all of the passion imaginable.

I never began praying for the sick because of glory or promotion.  It was only because of souls.  I looked in the Bible and saw the double power of miracles to convince the lost and to produce mighty converts.   This is why Paul said in 1 Corinthians 2: 4,5 “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.”

I am writing this to you today Saturday March 2, 2013 as I am preparing for a meeting in the San Francisco Area called LIVING PROOF.   People are coming for genuine miracles today at 5PM in Martinez CA.  We meet at the ARC located at 1015 Estudillo Street Martinez CA 94553.  You can call us at 925 300 3007.  It is calling LIVING PROOF SIMPLY BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT WE OFFER LOST SOULS!

The rage God feels for a dead church meeting is clear.  To Him, this is the lowest form of disregard for lost souls.  It is tolerated because the leadership doesn’t care, the people have beaten down the vision or they are all in denial and do not even notice that nothing happens when they meet.

The idea of shutting down the operation until the Holy Spirit regains control strikes terror in the hearts of many leaders.  Yet, this is inescapably and exactly what they must do.  Whatever tither is lost, whatever deacon or board member is offended, and whatever financial setback may come, there is nothing more terrible than to allow the ultimate missed opportunity.

In this spiritual nuclear winter of America it becomes even more urgent that we take whatever steps are necessary to have the meeting God wants and not the one that just happens out of routine.  I am on my face right now pleading for the kind of event that leaves the hurting soul helpless before the Glory and stunned before the proof of God’s love in Jesus Christ!

I have a message from God to You about Your Place in Saving America.

strange blog copy

I have a word from the Lord for you!  I know that because even as I am writing this to you my hand is shaking from the current of His power.  I am sitting here preparing to preach tonight in Martinez California.  Then it hit me that I was supposed to get this out to you right away.

Here is the fire that is overtaking my spirit.  Here is the word of the Lord to you.  Push away doubt, fear and apology.   Reject limits, lies and threats.  Today God will reveal your place in Saving America.  Jesus has targeted you for special ops! 

I am sitting here staring at the title for my message tonight:  Your place in saving America.

It begins with specific questions.  What would a revival in the San Francisco Bay Area look like?  In this bastion of liberalism, in this matrix of technology and social networking how would God do it?

These are the questions I will ask and answer tonight!  However, these truths apply no matter where you live!

1. Prophecy trumps policy:  The most urgent step you can take right now is to review the prophetic promises God has made to you.   Caesar Augustus felt powerful but he was manipulated by the prophetic when he ordered the world to register in their hometowns.  He had an echo of power because the real power was using him to get Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem.

Our Caesar Augustus is Barrack Obama.  Sorry if it offends but he is a tyrant on a binge to reshape America.  He is punishing what he perceives is the arrogance and greed of our nation.  He wants to erode everything that makes us exceptional and get us to fall into line with the other nations of the world.   His agenda beyond that is shrouded in mystery and darkness.

How could Augustus have known that one day his throne in Rome would fall to the Nazarene?  In the same way let every anti-God agent in America heed my warning.  Not only is God not done with the Church and our nation, He has not yet begun to fight!

The prophecies about you are greater than the policies that try to control you!  Tonight it will be my thrill to stand and remind those in Northern California of the prophecy that was given to me by none other than Bob Dylan the folk and rock legend himself!   Moments before he called me on the phone God said, “I will pour out of my Spirit on San Francisco.”   Minutes later Bob is on the phone to me and he asks, “Did God tell you He was going to pour out His Spirit on San Francisco Mario?  Well, He is.”   There are no words to describe the power I felt.   Since then amazing miracles have happened by seizing that promise but the best is yet to come!

2. Relevant, essential and supernatural:  1 Corinthians 14: 24 “But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all. 25 And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you.” Paul asks us, “What kind of impact to you want to have on the outside world?  We think that we are a universe away from revival but in fact, as dark as it may seem and as entrenched as evil looks, Satan’s hold is fragile and tenuous.

Relevant essential miracles overtake the narrative.  No matter how angry people are about rights, policies, liberal and conservative issues, the arrival of miracles stops debate.  It changes the conversation from race, drugs, guns and every other hot button issue to one about the Grace, Mercy, Goodness and Power of Jesus Christ.

God can instantly create things that were not there before and suddenly make the Church essential to those who wanted nothing to do with God!  God instantly created a hunger on the day of Pentecost!  The men in the crowd cried out to Peter, “what should we do?!  He can write new songs that will pierce a jagged generation!  He can impart new methods that

You may feel out of place with much of the religious world right now.  All that means is that you are meant for another place of service altogether.  If you have tried on the armor of Church tradition and it does not fit is because you are a new breed.  You are strangely normal and supernaturally appropriate to this moment when God breaks out in a shocking and irresistible way!
