A Few words about the attack you are facing 

By Mario Murillo

The attacks I am hearing about right now have hit me to my core. These are the most vicious attacks I have ever heard of!  And they are not just happening to weak Christians but to some battled tested leaders.  Many are locked in the battle of their life.

I asked God to help me see what these attacks were.  Three of them became really clear to me. The Bible calls Satan a serpent and he attacks like one.  Here are the 3 most blatant attacks right now.

1.The serpent’s bite. You feel poisoned and gradually losing control of your body and mind. Fearful images flood your mind. You reel under a cloud of confusion. You are exhausted. The least demand of your day can drain you.  You may find yourself crying and unable to explain your emotions.  You are gripped with paralyzing feelings of dread and sense disaster is just around the corner.

2. The serpent’s squeeze. This attack came out of nowhere and changed your life in an instant. You feel like you are suffocating. You want to scream but your voice is trapped within you. Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong.

The goal of this attack is panic.  The enemy wants you to do something rash.  The devil wants you to abandon your place in God.  He wants to do permanent damage.

 3.The serpent’s claws: This attack tears people apart. For silly reasons, people take offense. Disagreements easily escalate into name calling, abuse of power, and end in incurable breaches.  Marriages are breaking up over trivial matters.  Churches are splitting over stupid issues.  Children are turning on their parents without warning.  Lifelong friends turn into worst enemies bent on each other’s destruction.

Yes, these three shocking attacks are everywhere.  Not a day passes where I do not hear about all of them.fear-despair-ron (2)

Now please listen to this strategy to neutralize your Satanic attack!

The word react kept coming back to me again and again.  The Holy Spirit kept saying, “Learn how to react to your attack.” Victory and defeat are not decided by what happens to me. I choose the result. It kept coming over and over…react, react, and react. Then it turned into REACT, REACT, and REACT!  Finally, it was R.E.A.C.T.   An acronym for: Remember Enforce Abandon Continue Train. Here is a 5 step strategy to stop these vicious new attacks and launch a withering counterattack!

Remember!  You must remember the amazing victories of your past and how you won those battles.  Psalm 20 “some trust in chariots but we will remember the Lord our God.”

You must remember your God.  Nehemiah 4:14 says “remember the awesomeness of God and fight…”

 You must remember past victories, who you are, and what your future is.  Romans 8:18 “the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared to the glory that will be revealed in us!”   The thing you want to do most now is to get relief from the pain of raging storm.  The devil will leave you alone if you give up your destiny.

Enforce! Things are not what they seem.  Satan is the master of disguise.  Our enemy kills through special effects.  Bending reality is his stock and trade. The goal of his smoke and mirrors is to get you to accept disaster.  He cannot kill you but he can get you to harm yourself through a fatal panic attack.  It is up to you to impose reality on the evil one.

Abandon:  In every attack there is something you must abandon, something that you are holding onto that is actually holding onto you.  You may want something bad to happen to someone else.  You may be clinging to a destructive relationship. Forgive your enemy; cut of the parasites, lighten your load so that you can attack with speed and clarity.  There may be someone that is no longer supposed to be in your life. As T.D. Jakes said, “their part of the story is over, let them go.”

Continue: You were doing something that forced the devil to attack. Press on, it will show him that future attacks are futile.  The secret to your victory is to declare your intention to do more than you did before.  Look at Peter.  He was beaten for the healing of the man at the gate beautiful and ordered not to preach about Jesus.  What was his reaction? To pray for boldness to preach and for more miracles! Acts 4:29,30 Lord behold their threats and grant unto your servants that with all boldness we 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 servant Jesus.”

Train:  2 Corinthians 2: 11 “lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.”  It’s time to learn from the attack and put in place a strategy for future attacks.  When General Patton said, “no amount of courage will avail against an educated bullet,” he was talking about the urgency of training.  We must become and educated bullet! Ask yourself, what did I learn from the attack?  What pitfalls am going to avoid next time?  What weakness in me does the enemy use to get in and disrupt my life? What will I do now to keep friendships strong, my body healthy, my children safe, my marriage loving and my money secure against future assaults?

 So here is the bottom-line.  You are not crazy.  Your attacks are vicious, intense, and completely unfair.  The essence of your crisis is supernatural. This is why your counterattack must be supernatural! These 5 steps are not human wisdom, or soothing psycho-goobly gook.  You can rest in the power of God and the Word of God for victory if you will REACT!!

 4 IN 5 IN US FACE NEAR-POVERTY, …HERE IS WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO.

By Mario Murillo

According to exclusive information from the Associated Press,  four out of 5 U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near poverty or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives, a sign of deteriorating economic security and an elusive American dream.

Hardship is particularly on the rise among whites, based on several measures. Pessimism among that racial group about their families’ economic futures has climbed to the highest point since at least 1987. In the most recent AP-GfK poll, 63 percent of whites called the economy “poor.”

Economic insecurity among whites also is more pervasive than is shown in government data, engulfing more than 76 percent of white adults by the time they turn 60, according to a new economic gauge being published next year by the Oxford University Press.

More than 19 million whites fall below the poverty line of $23,021 for a family of four, accounting for more than 41 percent of the nation’s destitute, nearly double the number of poor blacks.

By 2030, based on current trends, 85 percent of all working-age adults in the U.S. will experience bouts of economic insecurity.  Just 45 percent say their family will have a good chance of improving their economic position based on the way things are in America.

To understand why 80% of all Americans are facing poverty you can blame Obama’s obsession with Obamacare, the media’s obsession with Obama and the damage of Obamacare itself.

Obama was so pregnant with Obamacare that he squandered everything to create it.  Obamacare is why Obama did nothing about jobs when his party controlled both houses of Congress for two years.  For four years, Congress refused to even create a budget at Obama’s bidding so that the cost of Obamacare could not be evaluated.  Only Democrats voted for Obamacare.

To create Obamacare, the Democratic Party turned Congress into Frankenstein’s laboratory.  They perverted laws and parliamentary procedure like “reconciliation” to put the pieces of the corpse together.   Then the cadaver was elevated on a platform to the mainstream media which provided the lightning to bring the beast to life.

Obama, no statesman to begin with, was even worse under the spell of Obamacare.  He bungled foreign policy, made clumsy and arrogant power grabs, diminished our standing in the world, our net worth and possibly our life span.  In simple terms, American is beyond human solution.

HERE IS WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO:  The answer we seek is prescribed in the last verse of the Star Spangled Banner:

“Oh! Thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand between their loved home and the war’s desolation! Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation. Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.” And the Star – Spangled Banner in triumph shall wave O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!”

In this verse we find three things:  1. Strong medicine for our poverty and disgrace.  2. An act of honor and worship that will save us.  3. And finally, a nation rescuing declaration: “In God is our trust!”

GodBlessAmerica

1. Mario Murillo Ministries will henceforth refer to America as the HEAVEN RESCUED LAND.  Our national anthem declares that we were born from a divine rescue mission!  You cannot say that without also speaking of REVIVAL!  We are a nation of revivals.  We have been rescued by revivals.  Awakenings have come at key times in our history.

Just when doom was certain God has come on the American scene with a vengeance.  As a youth I began reading about the moral awakenings in our nation’s history.  I saw a pattern, a glorious tapestry of mercy and grace that visited us again and again.  My heart burned with the accounts of how entire cities would shut down to pray, how crime was abated and families restored.

Then I lived to see it with my own eyes in the Jesus Movement.  Millions of American youth were converted in the next two decades and the Church was ignited nationwide.

Revival is what we must seek and the nucleus of what we preach.

2. “Then conquer we must when our cause it is just.”  Mario Murillo Ministries will speak out because it is a just cause!  How shall we preachers allow false humility and political politeness to keep us silent in America’s darkest hour?  Combating the poverty that is spreading like locusts is a just cause.  Speaking out in defense of marriage and the unborn is a just cause.  To refuse government constraints on our First Amendment right to speak out in our pulpits is a just cause.

3.  “In God is our trust.”  The enemy we face is sophisticated, organized and well-funded.  Any endeavor with a human origin is doomed from the start.   Going forward, every Pastor, leader and believer must saturate their plans in prayer and tune their souls to hear solutions from the Holy Spirit.  The ideas must come from Him.  The finances will come for divinely approved projects.  We will find the strategies we need, the words that will silence our enemy and the miracles that will confirm and convince a secular generation.

In conclusion:  To make a difference we must see the threat.  To retake the land we must call on God.  We must speak out loud and clear.  We must provoke the lukewarm to action and the lost to redemption.  The matter is summed up in the Prayer of Saint Peter:

“Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word,  by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.”- Acts 4: 29,30.

P.S.  We are moving full speed ahead on our next Living Proof Crusade!
