SATAN ATTACKED US

The History of Mario Murillo Ministries is the story of tenacity and grit in the face of impossibilities.  We have preached during campus riots.  We have faced bomb threats.  We have had cults show up to disrupt our gatherings.  No matter what, we have gone ahead, and finished what we started.
Earlier this year, you may remember, even with excruciating pain in my spine, I went ahead and preached 6 nights in our tent in the inner city of Las Vegas.  I simply would not quit.
Anyone who knows me, knows I do not quit.  If there is an event where souls are going to be reached and there is adversity I will not cancel.  That is why I am shocked at myself at what I am about to tell you: we must postpone our tent crusades in Houston and in San Antonio.   And, it makes me angry, with divine anger to cancel.  These were two amazing opportunities.  It is killing me to delay them.
1 Thessalonians 2:18 says, “Therefore we wanted to come to you—even I, Paul, time and again—but Satan hindered us.”  There it is!  Satan hindered us.   Notice that Paul did not tell the Thessalonians what Satan had done to hinder them.  He must have had his reasons.
Like Paul, I cannot tell my reasons at this time either.  I know that when the time is right I will tell you.
However, this attack should come as no surprise to anyone who is watching the flood of mob mentality, the deep division, hatred, betrayal, and lukewarm faith that are rampant across America.
More than anything, I need you to believe me…we would never make a decision like this lightly.  It is critical because we are going to be criticized for cancelling.  Again, I quote Paul the Apostle in the Message Bible translation:
Paul said, “Confident of your welcome, I had originally planned two great visits with you—coming by on my way to Macedonia province, and then again on my return trip. Then we could have had a bon-voyage party as you sent me off to Judea. That was the plan.  Are you now going to accuse me of being flip with my promises because it didn’t work out? Do you think I talk out of both sides of my mouth—a glib yes one moment, a glib no the next? Well, you’re wrong. I try to be as true to my word as God is to his. Our word to you wasn’t a careless yes canceled by an indifferent no.” 2 Corinthians 1:15-19 MSG
The tent, chairs and mountains of equipment were ready.  The trucks were ready. The sites were locked in.  Everything was in place.  We invested thousands of dollars.  We were moving an army to Houston and San Antonio.  Then this crisis struck.
What breaks my heart, is not just the souls we could have reached, but the amazing core of volunteers that worked so hard to help us.  I commend you all for demonstrating the real love of Jesus.  Please don’t give up!
This is not over!  We will see these outreaches.  The devil will pay—brutally pay for this attack.  God bless you for hanging in there with me.  As soon as I can, I will tell you more.  Until then I need you to storm heaven in prayer for us.

I really need you to read this.

It was not just a tent meeting it was God publicly displaying His power to do the impossible.  From the jump, we were handed a long list of impossibilities.  It was impossible to get the site we needed.  It would be impossible to go 6 straight nights and hope for any kind of a crowd.  It was impossible to get churches to cooperate with each other in a city notoriously called a graveyard for preachers.

We would be in the shadow of Burning Man—a gigantic event known worldwide—no one will know you are here.  Some even referenced the strong winds that blow in September here in the mountains.  At every turn, we faced a threat that promised to end our vision for Living Proof Reno.

Then I was given a direct order from the Holy Spirit: 6 straight nights of miracle rallies.  Even as a young man, a single night of miracles could drain me for days.  At most, I remember doing 3, maybe 4 in a row.  Now I was to do 6!

I cannot describe what happened in those 6 nights.  It would take me months to do it justice.  However, many are saying this tent meeting is a turning point for this area.  I wish I could go into detail about every testimony of healing—there were scores and scores who were touched by Jesus.  I wish I could portray the moments when souls met Jesus in dramatic ways.  Many who simply walked in off the street and were overcome by the power of God.

Friday night was one of the greatest manifestations of the Holy Spirit I have seen in 50 years of ministry.  There is no doubt we could have continued these meetings and they would likely have grown in attendance and intensity.  There is a big reason we cannot stay in Reno.

I need to talk to you about Houston Texas, and San Antonio Texas.  We are doing something now that is even more challenging than Reno.  We are like an army coming out of a great battle and turning to march to an even greater battle.  The biggest challenge we face is time.

I am especially directing my appeal to leaders, Pastors and concerned Christians.  I am coming to Houston October 22nd and to San Antonio October 23rd to meet you!  I am asking anyone who has a heart to see a miracle to join me.  Register by clicking here:  https://app.mobilecause.com/f/1xez/n

We are still scrambling to catch up from the 4 months that I was flat on my back.  We had seriously talked about cancelling the great invasions in the inner cities of Houston and San Antonio.  The Holy Spirit said to go in faith and believe for an epic breakthrough.

How can we cancel while the nation writhes in the agonies of addiction, political hatred and division?  How can we cancel when cities are ravaged by violence?  How can we be silent when God-hating mobs are filling our youth with lies?

That is why no matter what the cost—no matter how draining—no matter what the danger we will bring to Houston and San Antonio the kind of meetings America saw in the 1950s when miracle evangelists turned cities upside down!

 

I need your help.  I am praying as I have never prayed before for God to send us workers.  Would you like to see addicts delivered?  Prostitutes transformed?  Gangsters made into new creations?  Then join our army!

I am especially directing my appeal to leaders, Pastors and concerned Christians.  I am coming to Houston October 22nd and to San Antonio October 23rd to meet you!  I am asking anyone who has a heart to see a miracle to join me.

I’ll have coffee and donuts for you but most of all I have a plan form God and fire from the Holy Spirit for you to make history!

I know this is all short notice, but God does some of His works on short notice.  The Bible says, “Then Hezekiah and all the people rejoiced that God had prepared the people, since the events took place so suddenly.” -2 Chronicles 29:36

I AM EXCITED FOR MANY REASONS

The doctor told me I had one of the worst disk injuries he had ever seen.  This was my 4th doctor.  I survived 5 months of excruciating pain—but the worst was yet to come.  He told me I needed surgery fast.  But, choosing the best neurosurgeon meant I had to wait.  Waiting in pain—not knowing how long you’ll wait—is a hard thing.

During that season, I could not understand what was happening to me.  Our tent crusades were shut down.  I wondered if I would ever be able to stand again.

We get an appointment.  Even though the neurosurgeon had all my X-rays, his office ordered me to rush and get a new set 1 day before my appointment.  We had no idea how important that was.

We finally see him.  He says, “I compared your new and old X-rays.  Mario, this is a miracle.  If you had come in 4 weeks ago, I would have had to operate. It means going in through your stomach, leaving an 8-inch scar on your abdomen.  Even then, there was no promise you’d get better, and you’d face a year of rehab.  But something changed and now all you need is physical therapy.”  God makes us wait for good reasons.

I am excited because my injury even without surgery should take a year to recover.  Instead I am restored and, on a soul-winning vendetta.

Satan attacked me to stop our tent crusades.  He was frustrating an urgent project.  We have been building an industry around our tent.  We have amassed equipment, soldiers, and systems for a mighty evangelistic weapon.  One of our most important developments is our teamwork with Inner City Action and Frank Saldana. 

We developed an explosive training program called FIREPOWER.  This training is going to give us a national army.

Last year, it took several months prepare to do just one Living Proof Tent Crusade.  Now all the working parts are in place.  The machine is humming!

I am excited because we are going to do three crusades before Thanksgiving!  Here are the details:  

Living Proof Reno

 

 Living Proof Houston TX

 

 Living Proof San Antonio TX

My injury was one of the greatest tests of my life.  Strange as it may seem, the Lord visited me every night and poured in revelation and insights to the future of America.  He told me I would see unprecedented miracles—radical healings.  He told me He would pour out His Spirit on the inner cities and send forth a shock army—made up of people who were thrown out like garbage.

He warned me to expect revival in small churches among broken-hearted pastors.  He told me He was going to start a movement to break the political curse on America.

Yeah, I am excited…how could I not be!  -Mario Murillo

P.S. I know this sounds strange, but you need to pray about being in Reno for our Living Proof Crusade there.  Every atom of my being resonates with expectancy for this one event.  If you know anyone in need of a miracle—do what you must to get them under the tent!  To know more call us at 775 238 3473 or click here  mariomurillo.org  MM
