HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT

This is a huge announcement—the greatest breakthrough we’ve had in 15 years.  We have been warring secretly for the right to use one of the most strategic locations ever.  It is in a city that fits every category for a Living Proof Tent Crusade.
Boy, did Satan fight this one! In 50 years of preaching I have not experienced demonic resistance like this. I felt as if I were in direct contact with hell. But, now we have won.
The city is Stockton, California. The location is the Weber Point Event Center. Ask anyone who knows Stockton and they will tell you that this is the most visible location in the entire region.  And we got it!
We must honor Frank and Kim Saldana who lead Inner City Action. Without their many years of incredible work among the unsheltered and addicted in Stockton, we could not have won this victory.
On our behalf, they have jumped through more hoops and unraveled more red tape in government agencies than I have ever seen. But now we have won!  Our tent is going up in Stockton and everyone there is going to know it!
Circle these dates on your calendar: Tuesday May 28th through Saturday June 1st. The location: Weber Point Event Center, on the Waterfront.
Now get this: Stockton has been decimated by gangs, violence, poverty, and homelessness. There is no need to harp on the pain of this community, but there is no way around the gaping need here. If any city in America needs a miracle, it is Stockton. I believe that miracle is on the way!

Here is our great challenge—a challenge I can only explain by comparing it to a moment in the Second World War that involved General George S. Patton and the Third Army.  Bastogne was under siege from the Nazis. A hasty meeting of generals was convened 100 miles away. Each general including Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery said that it was impossible to send men on such short notice to rescue Bastogne.
That was when the last man who could even consider volunteering, did so. Patton’s men had just marched 50 miles with little food, in frigid weather. Now he would wake them up and order them to march twice that distance. The other generals told him that he was asking the impossible.  And that is exactly what God is asking of us. The impossible.
The combined forces of Inner City Action, Mario Murillo Ministries and the Five30 from Marysville are going to march from Paradise, California straight into another battle in Stockton. We are beyond short-handed. All of our spiritual muscles are strained to the max.  We will invade Paradise, California with everything we’ve got, and then with no rest we will turn around and march into Stockton.
What choice do we have? Those dates opened up like the Red Sea, and by God’s grace we will seize them.
My friend, for the very first time, I can say we have the chance to rock a city for Jesus–and we are going to do it!
I am imploring you for help.  At the very least, begin at this moment to bombard heaven with prayer for our strength and favor to increase. Pray that the people of God in the Paradise area rise to the challenge. Pray for protection as our workers enter the danger zones of Stockton.
Finally, I need every one who reads this, who is near Stockton, to get involved. We have never done anything this massive on such short notice.  There are two events that I need you to be at on Saturday April 27th.  I am praying fervently for you to answer this call for Stockton!

 

 

 

 

If this was

Dear Brothers and Sisters who lead big churches in America,
Leaving the truth out to avoid offending is a disaster.  When it is wildly successful, it is an even greater disaster.  Spurgeon said, “It is a very ill omen to hear a wicked world clap its hands and shout ‘Well done’ to a Christian man.”  Even in Spurgeon’s time, the world rewarded preachers for compromise.
The original Twelve were bold.  They preached letting the chips fall where they may.  No wonder they did. God was confirming their message with signs and wonders. Not only that, their preaching produced new creations of great joy, peace, and power. Our message was once contagious, catching on like wildfire, but now we resort to slick marketing to get society to listen to us.
Truth dispensed in love under the anointing has never needed such inducements. It never will.
The Bible teaches preachers not to offend unnecessarily. But true vessels of God have always understood that their message would awaken fury in some men. They disregarded popularity and even personal safety. They understood the difference between fulfilling a calling and trying to build a career in ministry.

Today we see a great evil in America. Congregations will enrich, yea they will elevate to superstar status any speaker who can eloquently keep the rightful demands of God off their backs.
Someone like me can be easily dismissed. When you take aim at vastly successful, far-flung Christian enterprises, you are easily rejected.   People will ask “how can you deny its effectiveness?” Or you hear them accuse saying, “You’re just being petty and jealous.”
But there are disturbing questions.  Is it petty to point out that this “success” coincides with America’s fastest moral decline? Is it jealousy to say that atheism and paganism have accelerated even as celebrity Pastors boast of their impact? Is it possible that in cheapening the Gospel we have paid a steep price?
There is another question. What might have been if we would have only trusted the Holy Spirit?  What if we had truly consulted and obeyed the One Who was sent to organize and direct the Church?  What would we look like now?
Preaching the entire Gospel releases power. 1 Corinthians 1:18 “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
Romans 1: 16 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation for everyone who believes…”
Why is the phrase “power of God” used in two verses that deal with the offense of the Gospel?  Because it is the power of God that drives home truth, even when it offends.
Paul understood the plan behind the offense.  As a top-flight intellectual, he was keenly aware of the God-designed offense of the Cross.  He refused to rely on his formidable skill in debate, saying instead: “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 so that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” – 1 Corinthians 2: 4-5

The American Church will face a day of reckoning with American culture.  It is inevitable because the church and American culture will soon not be able to coexist.  Our society has become an open sewer, a bastion of banality where madness has the microphone.  We have the one message that should not be hidden or redacted.

 

With all my heart I believe it is not too late. But it is almost too late. I implore my brothers and sisters to repent. Let us present ourselves without reservation or hesitation to Almighty God.
The Pope showed Saint Francis the wealth of the Vatican. He said, “Well Francis, the church can no longer say ‘silver and gold have I none.’”  Francis replied, “And neither can it say, “In the Name of Jesus rise up and walk.””
Likewise, fellow preachers, we can no longer say that churches aren’t growing or prospering. But neither can we say that we have delivered the witness to America that God intended—and that is the only thing that can turn the tide.

 

The Best Kind of Church

What is the best kind of church for this dark hour?  What kind of church transcends outward success and has true impact? What kind of church does not kill its pastor or crank out lukewarm believers?

Right now God is recruiting men and women to lead a new kind of congregation. He is asking for volunteers to build churches that can save America. He is offering you a glorious opportunity to build a storm proof, battle tested family of believers.   An army who will not just survive, they will thrive.

I am writing to the sincere, brokenhearted pastor and to the people who love that pastor. I want this to be a word that brings life, hope and direction. You will not hear this in any seminar on church growth. It is a radical departure from what you have been told.  But there is no doubt this will work.

1. Let go. Let go of the stress of human church growth models. Let go of the nasty people—both the pharisitic who criticizes all you do and the parasitic who sucks the life out leadership.  Let go of the pressure to please anyone but God.  Let go of the fear of finances. Let go of the fear of failure. Now what are you left with? You are in a complete state of joyous dependency on God. 

2. Seek Jesus. I am absolutely telling you to break away and seek God. Don’t seek guidance. Don’t seek provision. Don’t seek growth. Just seek Jesus until He is more real than anything you fear.

David Wilkerson said this after Christ set him free from man made ministry: “Now, my greatest joy is waiting upon Him for direction. I have made time to be alone with Him, and have prepared my soul to abide in His quiet presence. He is letting me sense what the Spirit is saying to this generation. The more He empties me, the more He fills me with a desire to depend only on Him for everything. I see now that all along the Lord was waiting for me to lay down all my plans, all my ambitions, and be given over to Him as a bond slave. The sweat is now gone – the pressure is off. He is recreating all my values.”

3.Tell the people they are destroyers of the works of the devil. Does that sound oversimplified or strange? The fact is, this is the most lethal announcement Satan will ever hear in your church .

1 John 3: 8 tell us that Jesus was purpose driven: “for this purpose was the Son of God revealed that He might destroy the works of the devil.”  However, the purpose that drove Him was totally unlike what modern preachers love to talk about.  Jesus is a destroyer of the works of the devil.  Why is that important to note?

It shows the people the purpose that should drive them.  They are an extension of the purpose of Christ and not some freelance boring substitute. So much is said about being purpose driven. Here is the purpose!

If the people redefine themselves as destroyers of the works of the devil it will instantly transform your meetings. Gone is the harmless fellowship or self-help seminars. From this point on, church services are demonstrations of the power of God and training sessions for your people to go out and destroy the works of the devil.

Your people will cease to attend church to do time, or learn to tread water. They will expect miracles. That part is the key to reaching modern America.  If church becomes a center for Holy Spirit led signs and wonders. If the moving of the Spirit is free and balanced then outsiders will see undeniable proof of the power of Christ. That becomes the attraction.

Today we have been ushered into one of two extremes in church models. One is totally entertainment business model that runs like a machine. The other, sadly, is a model of reaction where declining attendance and religious defiance drives preachers to preach angry sermons and put increasing bondage on their dwindling numbers.

Church should attract but for the right reason. When the reason is right it, brings people who are hungry for truth, who need a miracle, who yearn for deliverance from addiction, perversion and all the damage of our sick and stupid culture.

Best of all they not only come—they stay. You don’t have to cater to their whims because they have met Christ and have been ruined by His glory.

4.Give the Holy Spirit actual and not symbolic control to make revival sustainable. Once you start growing and the crowds come, you will need wisdom from beyond this world to make it sustainable. Don’t violate the power that brought you this miracle by falling back into human wisdom and old habits. Determine to make your dependency on the Holy Spirit real not symbolic or mystical. The more you do this the clearer His guidance will become.

How can you not try this? If the possibility exists for a congregation that is excited, unselfish, supernatural and uniquely forged to save America why wouldn’t you be open? I pray you will!

A Crisis Point

Today thousands of sermons will be preached to millions of people. Some of it will do more harm than good—way more than you know.

I am not taking a swipe at all preachers. Most preachers are sincere men and women of God. However, these worthy voices are often drowned out by the modern preaching that leaves out the Cross of Christ, the Blood of Christ, Bible verses on sexual sin, and hell.

The modern preachers who leave all this out do it because they say they want to offer hope. Hope is their big word. Here and now, I am accusing them of offering at best an inferior hope and at worst a false hope.

Paul the Apostle had a totally opposite view about preaching hope. He said, “Therefore, since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech.” -2 Corinthians 3:12. To give hope these preachers leave truth out. Paul believed that to give hope you must leave it all in.

He said in Ephesians 6:19 “and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” Twice, he refers to boldness.

Again, in 2 Corinthians 4 he detailed why it is such a disaster to leave anything out: “Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not lose heart. 2 But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. 3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

Handling the Word of God deceitfully and putting a veil over it makes that preacher a villain to lost souls.  Worse still, that preacher is in cahoots with the devil. They put a veil over truth while Satan blinds people to it.

Every day we are lose ground because of this artificial preaching. Since He–the Holy Spirit– is also called the Spirit of truth. You cannot be anointed unless you are telling the truth.

Here is what this preaching has cost us so far: Because the church did not take a unified Biblical stand on sexual immorality the left has systemically canonized the lie that Christian doctrine is hate speech.

Today, Chick Fil A was banned from yet another airport. What did they do wrong? They stood by their Christian values and they gave money to Christian groups. City boards voted to shut them down because they gave to “hate” organizations. Had we taken a stand, we would not be in this bind.

More damage: these preachers made their congregations biblically illiterate. That is why a huge number of Christians including famous “gospel” singers don’t know the values of the Christian faith—don’t know how to answer their culture—don’t see anything wrong with abortion or same sex marriage—and don’t know how to vote.

Back to the issue of hope. I am asking these preachers a simple question: how can you say you are bringing hope if you leave out the truths that carry the hope?

Here is what I mean: real hope comes from true conversion. Only the soul that has repented and utterly opened themselves to new life can feel the surpassing hope of Christ. Let me show some examples of hope:

The Cross: until the soul knows it is lost—until it is broken by the sacrifice of Christ the true hope of Christ cannot take hold of them. But, brother, when it does it is awesome to behold. You will have a convert that is in church for all the right reasons. You have a walking miracle that is contagious.

The Blood of Christ: Only those souls that know the Blood was applied to their sin can feel clean—a moral clean that nothing else can give them. Moreover, the most dangerous young convert is the one that knows they have power over the devil. Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”

Sexual sin: Millions of people who genuinely want deliverance can’t find it because society has normalized their behavior. But that does not change the damage. The suicide rate for transgender people is 33 times higher than the general population.

People look at verses like the following and call them hateful but look again: 1 Corinthians 6: 9 “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”

Two takeaways here: 1. Sin is sin. There is no sin elevated above another. Thieves, murders, idolaters, drunkards, are all sexual sin are listed equally. 

 2. It ends with true deliverance from sin. It offers hope of cleansing, sanctification, and justification. That hope is not available if we skirt the issue.

The hope of the misguided modern sermon offers little or no hope. They tout the good life. But if that’s hope, why are billionaires killing themselves? Besides, what are we doing advancing the same lie as the world?

When the lukewarm believer leaves church they are swooning the superficial glow of a happy sense that God is not mad at them. What they don’t have is the blazing reality of being set free and filled with peace that passes understanding and power to answer a sick world’s cry for help.

These happy time sermons must stop now. They are as big a threat to America as the leftist radicals.

Every night, under our tent we kill the lie of these modern sermons. Lost souls hear truth under the power of the Holy Spirit. God confirms the Word with miracles. The unchurched come running for new life. Glory to God!

Remember this…Paul said it was because of how great the hope is that we are bold to tell all the truth. Amen.

 

 

 

THE LESSON

First of all, Mario Murillo Ministries is still a California Corporation and we are dedicated to seeing revival here.  However, to learn how the church lost her witness here demands brutal honesty.

15.8 million Californians claim to be Christian—more by far, than any other state in the union.  When California went abjectly hippie, communist, one has to wonder where were the Christians?   Let’s stipulate that only one third of all believers in California can vote.  According to statistics, that would still be 5.26 million people.

Gavin Newsom won a popular vote margin of  just under 2.9 million.  Why couldn’t the Church—with her vast store of congregants—come up with another 3 million votes to win the election?  If every Christian who could vote, voted for righteousness, they would have won by a landslide. There’s a bigger question:

Why did Christians vote for Gavin Newsom? He is even most hostile to our values than Jerry Brown was.  We know they did, because he could not win without their vote.  The church had the power—at every turn—to stop the liberal agenda in California.  Why didn’t she? 

I know that judges overturned the will of the people with Prop 8.  I get that there are union crime families in California.  I realize that free speech is dying on the left coast.  I also know there is widespread voter fraud.  All of that considered, it still does not explain how such a vast voting bloc could be neutralized.

This is not a hatchet job on believers in the Golden State.  I have sacrificed a great part of my life for the churches there.  I don’t believe the fault lies with rank and file believers.  I also know there are many godly pastors faithfully serving on the West Coast.

No, this disaster crept in like a Trojan Horse.  I saw it firsthand and preached against it from the first day I saw it.  It was a masterstroke of Satan that began over 30 years ago.  When I tell you the culprit, a part of you will be shocked, and another part will recognize why I am right instantly.

The problem was the church growth movement.  More harm than you can possibly imagine came from the seemingly innocuous words “church growth movement.”  And, yes indeed it was a movement.

The initial victim was unity.  The next victim was soul winning.  The final victim was Bible literacy.  Here is how it worked:

When numbers mattered more than anything, California pastors began to see other pastors as the competition.  Hollywood, drugs, atheism, and sexual perversion were no longer the threat—now it was your brother in Christ.  Ministers became suspicious of one another, and began to isolate themselves citing their “big vision.”

Then, these regional pastors inadvertently created a new morality.  Sin was not the sin defined in scripture—sin was now anything that hindered growth.  By removing the offensive parts of the Bible, they also removed the parts that had the power to change people. 

They steered clear of righteousness by saying “confrontational messages offend the very people we are trying to reach.”  This is code for “it is bad for business.”

To maximize growth, churches felt compelled to become self-contained entertainment centers, who didn’t need anyone else.  This destroyed mass evangelism, like what we saw with Billy Graham in neutral stadiums and auditoriums.  The photo below is from the Billy Graham Crusade in the Los Angeles coliseum in 1963.  120,000 are inside and 30,000 more could not get in.  This is unimaginable in Los Angeles today.

Soon California churches became expert at drawing audiences but leaving them unchanged by the Gospel.  Hundreds of thousands could belong to a church and see nothing wrong with abortion or gay marriage. Why?  Because their spiritual leader never talked about it.  Believers assumed that all of this was acceptable under the constant drumbeat of inclusiveness.

When the pastors noticed that the people loved their “nonreligious” appearance and behavior, they began to let down their guard.  The innocent wine and cocktails turned in a drinking habit.  Other dark trends that I will not mention became common among these leaders.  Thus, they were powerless to address the rampant immorality in their congregations.  They were also powerless to form a multi-church statewide voter movement.

Soon, Movie stars, pop stars, and famous athletes became status symbols for these churches.  Instead of the mega pastor discipling these celebrities, the celebrities discipled them.   It became impossible for these preachers to quote scripture, teach doctrine, or oppose liberal agendas.

Finally, taking a stand against left wing politicians became unloving.  Pastors escaped their duty by saying “that is not my calling.”  They took the Bible out of context in telling them that any political statements were judgmental.  Any Christian voter registration effort was downplayed or banned.

Soon Satan had tightened his noose and masses of Christians were oblivious to the warfare around them—most of all, they were ignorant of the ultimate price their children would have to pay for their doctrinal illiteracy.

The things these pastors preached gave no inkling of what believers were about to face.  Their child could be suspended for wearing a Christian t-shirt.  Their job in Silicon Valley could be lost if they testified on the job.  Textbooks that taught alternative sexual lifestyles were forced on their children.  The streets grew violent and the Universities became intolerant.  In short, these churches prepared their crowds for a world that doesn’t exist and did not stop the one that now exists.

California Christians—there is still hope!  The Christian history of California proves that great movements of God can come out of nowhere.  The Jesus movement appeared when a flood of immorality gripped the state.  God can do it again!  As I wrote recently, there is a secret about California that Satan viciously protects: Many in California are searching for God. We see it right now in Marysville where hundreds have been born again and the harvest demands we extend the meetings!

Nevertheless—it is simple truth:  the church growth movement was destructive.   Instead of building on the Rock—which would have given them a large church anyway—they built on sand.  The storm that Jesus warned us of has come.   They sent sheep out of their services unprotected and unable to withstand the storm of left-wing tyranny that  has set the state adrift in a sea of chaos.

Christians across America, take a lesson from California.  If the most popular churches in your state resemble the ones in this blog beware, the same crisis is already in your state.

A LOVING REBUKE

A thick blanket of the Holy Spirit covers the crowd as I start my appeal to come to Jesus.  A phenomenon no one but God can explain ensues.  Chains begin falling off of God haters, the homeless, addicts and just plain people who need Jesus.  Souls that would have nothing to do with each other on the street flow together forming a river of humanity forging its way forward to be set free. That happened under the tent tonight.
But I saw something tonight that truly makes me angry with what the devil has done to the American church.

Tonight I saw a group of people who truly want God. Tonight I saw pastors who love one another. Tonight I saw something we used to see before we lost so much. No frills, no perks, just a raw love for God. These twin miracles truly convicted me of what America needs right now.
These believers in Marysville are not just beautiful in Jesus, their pure motive serves as a great rebuke to so much of the attitude of modern church. These soldiers of Jesus want to serve and reach out. What a contrast to the complacent and lukewarm spirit that is so widespread and damaging.
These true Christians did just lay hands on one another, they fought for healing and God rewarded them with many miracles.
More than ever I know Lucifer wanted the spirit-filled army of God missing when America needed her most. It worked…we were missing. It wasn’t because we believed a lie but because we abused truth.

When you hear a spirit-filled Christian say “it’s all in God’s hands and it will all turn out as He wants” it’s a comforting thought that is hard to debate, but it is not what we need now. How can anyone take up the weapons of God in faith if they believe their choices don’t matter? Why try to change the world if you believe it’s solely God’s job?
Grace, a glorious truth that should make us broken with gratitude, and drive us to please God with all our heart became an excuse for some to run wild. Steve Hill heard one of them say, “’You guys are old-fashioned ‘holiness,’ we are modern day ‘grace.’ You live in bondage while we can do anything we want.” They see no point to repentance or sacrifice. How can anyone be an effective weapon with this attitude?
Gloom and doom preaching does the same thing. While it rightly warns of dark days some take it to the point of thinking everything is supposed to get worse. In fact, by attempting to have a moral awakening, you are opposing God’s plan.
This keeps the church on the defensive by telling them to take cover.  Fear sells books, conspiracy theories sell survival, not revival.  Gloom and doom prophets—like good democrats—must cheer on global domination, global warming and global disasters to keep Christians buying.  They do not equip you to confront and conquer evil because they don’t believe it’s possible.

Many are playing games.  Facebook is like a playground for giddy believers.  In one compressed medium, you witness the banal bacteria that excites immature believers today. Witness the games:
Titles like Prophet and Apostle are flung around indiscriminately.  Every garish emotional experience is hawked as being from God.
Conferences promise that you will get “a word from God” for a fee… as if the Holy Spirit was On Demand.  Or they offer formulas to “activate” blessings, using terminology dangerously close to new age.
God is not a force to manipulate—He is an awesome person to be adored and obeyed.  Gifts come as the Spirit wills, to hearts broken—emptied of self—for the lost, the poor, and the forsaken.
Good messages made us passive. But everywhere you look in the Bible it is against passivity and advocates action: “fight the good fight of faith…” “Endure hardness as a good soldier…” “Resist the devil…” “Take the sword of the Spirit…”
God has chosen to act in answer to prayer.  He waits until His people rise and take their rightful place in the arena of battle.  Young David saw the stalemate.  No one challenged Goliath.  David couldn’t stand it. He offered himself to God.  God is looking for someone like that today—someone who can’t live with evil, who can’t stomach the perversion, and is enraged to see God dishonored.  Someone God can use to turn the tide of America.
There’s a miracle growing in Marysville. I am filled with wonder and fear about what will happen next.

A new turn

She sat near the front with no inkling what was about to happen to her. The Holy Spirit revealed the two precise locations of her physical problems. But then the details became so stunning that it hit the audience. By the Spirit’s power, I told her she had been punched in her abdomen and the side of her head. The Holy Spirit said that her assault was covered up but it would be exposed. She was already scheduled to be in court to defend herself.
One of the local pastors very familiar with her entire situation followed up and learned that the damage to her eyesight has now vanished as well as the damage to her stomach. He also knows she will win her case.
Why am I telling you this? Simply because this was only one of a number of healings that happened in the tent on Monday night.  It was because of this, a buzz went out into the community. The result was that tonight was the biggest crowd yet. It was packed.

As I surveyed the crowd, my only concern was the fire marshal. Last week, I was told he was coming on Tuesday night. I assumed our Tuesday night attendance would dip from Sunday and Monday so I felt glad that he had picked Tuesday. Now, I was looking at a crowd that not was not only packed in…I couldn’t figure out how they all got in! This would be the worst night for him to show up.
Then the atmosphere changed into something we had not seen before. Youth were everywhere and God was doing a deep work in them. We thought we knew what God would do. Many had traveled from great distances to be healed. We were told people had flown in from Texas, New Jersey and Washington expecting miracles.
The sensation I am about to describe is not easy because I have never had it before. I could feel souls wanting Jesus. This hunger after God forced our regular program to go out the window.  It knew that as soon as I gave the appeal to come to Christ it would completely take over the meeting. But even then, I still didn’t get it right.
Some told me that over 150 people came to Christ. Others said even more. But, as always say, only God knows the real number. What I do know, is that I had to make an emergency move. We would not take an offering—we would not have a normal healing service—and, we would not ask the converts to go outside. There were just too many of them to move.

I told the people that the need of those who had come forward must take priority. I told them there are too many souls that want Jesus for us to go on with the meeting. I asked all of those who needed healing to put their hand on their heart. We began praying for mass miracles. I exhorted them that because they had sacrificed the regular healing time for the sake of new converts that God would intensify His power to heal them. And indeed, you could feel healing power surging in people’s bodies everywhere in the tent.
Pastor Jim Carpenter and the many well trained workers waded into the massive harvest and began praying for them, counselling them, and making sure they were cared for. The audience had received healing miracles like they had expected but they saw souls transformed in a way they did not expect.
What will happen tonight? Only God knows but it is clear that a youth movement is forming, miracles are falling and a revival spirit is spreading fast! Marysville has take a turn toward a major move of God.
The dream I saw of Highway 99 turning into a raging river of miracles has indeed started.
