I need you to own this opportunity to save our nation
By Mario Murillo
If there was an opportunity to restore America and leave one nation under God for our children and our grandchildren would you take that opportunity?
But how can we imagine any opportunity while we watch the nation go up in flames? We are engulfed in lawlessness, racial hatred, and decadence. Images of rioting and looting cover the nation. Instead of turning to God in our disaster our citizens casts Him away. Our elected officials squander precious time obsessed by things that do not matter.
How can we imagine any opportunity while Christian leaders are throwing their hands up saying that it is impossible to rescue America? Some even employ Bible prophecy to insist that America must be destroyed so we can have an antichrist, one world government, and hence the Second Coming of Christ.
Blinded and choked by the smoke of chaos outside the church and by defeatism inside the church how can anyone see any opportunity?
But what if there was a glimmer of hope? What if in all the twisted rubble there was a chance to make a real difference? What if there was something we could do?
At this point, I am not even asking you to imagine a solution for America. I am asking “if there was a real opportunity, would you take it?”
Not long ago I returned from a ministry trip. I opened my front door, and dropped my luggage. I became keenly aware that I had just done something for the very last time in my life.
There was something that I could never do again and I will never do it again…to do it again will at best shorten my life and at worse, it will take my like. Never again could I be a part of a regular church meeting.
In that moment, everything I had ever done for Christ was being lumped into one seed and was about to be put in the ground to die. From that point on, Mario Murillo Ministries had to become an unimpaired vessel of healing to the nation. Whatever personal sacrifice that it would require and whatever rejection it might bring became irrelevant.
Now I had to let God expose these false assumptions:
America cannot be saved. Joel 2: 13, 14 say, “So rend your heart, and not your garments; return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness; And He relents from doing harm. Who knows if He will turn and relent, and leave a blessing behind Him?”
The words “Who knows” jumped out at me! Since God relents from doing harm who are you and who am I to say America is finished? Who knows but God?
When the disciples wanted destruction Jesus rebuked them. Luke 9: 54 And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?” 55 But He turned and rebuked them, and said, “You do not know what manner of spirit you are of. 56 For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.”
Habakkuk “3:2 shows us how to pray; “O Lord, I have heard Your speech and was afraid; O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years! In the midst of the years make it known; In wrath remember mercy.” We should be trying for mercy not destruction!
Americans are too sophisticated to sit and hear the Gospel. Yes, this is the most complicated and easily offended culture ever. It is virtually impossible to even know what to say to them. However, we have no excuse because Jesus Himself promised in Luke 21: 15 “I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.”
James 1:5 promises us we can ask for that wisdom, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”
I asked and I received wisdom! That is part of the great opportunity that I want you to own.
Mario Murillo Ministries cannot stay where it has been. It is time for us to make radical changes because the crisis demands it and God has ordered it.
When written in Chinese, the word ‘crisis’ is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represents opportunity. Here is our danger and our opportunity.
Our danger: Mario Murillo Ministries is in danger of losing its life if we remain where we are at this time. America is too far gone for regular meetings in regular places. We are too far gone to have any more regular meetings in regular places. What is killing us is threefold:
- Limiting our outreaches to church buildings. This has never been a good way for a soul winning ministry to change a nation. To continue to do this will only break my spirit and ultimately take my life. For my family’s sake I refuse to do this anymore. The only time that I feel healthy is when I walk out of a meeting where the masses have been saved and healed.
- Interrupting our invasions at key moments because we have to go back to churches for needed offerings. To make a meaningful dent into this present darkness we must have an uninterrupted flow of supernatural outreach. In short, our ministry must turn into a movement and the only way to do that is to let momentum build in city after city.
- We have not had a chance to show what our team can really do. We want unchurched audiences to experience our event done our way. We must be the creative force behind every moment of a Living Proof Event.
The public should not be forced to choose between Christian events that are either frozen or freaky. There is no rule that says a soul winning event should be a boring, powerless, apology tour that blunts the gifts of the Spirit. On the other hand, there is no excuse for a hyper emotional meltdown that blesses self-indulgent believers but leaves outsiders rolling their eyes.
Why can’t we have order and freedom? In describing manifestations of the Holy Spirit Paul said “Let all things be done decently and in order.” – 1 Corinthians 14:40.
Likewise, we believe that worship music does not have to be a carnal concert or mindless repetition. Let music be anointed to touch the hearts of outsiders.
We are finally in a position to be able to present to the unchurched public a very unique kind of experience in our meetings. It has taken years to get here but God has done it!
We need a onetime infusion of money that will release us to finally and fully present Living Proof to America. I am asking for $100,000. It is not a random amount it is a prayerfully discerned amount. It represents a gift that will take us to the level where we can attack without interruption and present the Gospel without restriction.
This is not a lot of money in today’s world. In many organizations this would not make a dent but with this gift we can launch a full scale attack.
Mario Murillo Ministries is in a life and death situation. We have already shut down business as usual. We are going to change our ministry even before the money gets here. We cannot wait until it is affordable to win America, we are going now.
If just 200 people responded to this letter we can meet our goal. I have prayed for people to be moved to give a onetime gift in these 5 amounts: $5,000, $2500, $1,000, $500, and $250.
I am so certain that those core of partners are about to change our ministry forever that I am planning a commemorative wall of honor to inscribe the names of those who gave at this critical moment in our history. You can put your name or the name of someone you love on a wall that will always be remembered as the heroes who carried us into our future.
Let me say one last thing to you.
Every day something good about America is erased. It is going to take more than cozy talks to reverse our moral avalanche. The sickness of our nation calls for something unlike anything we have seen so far.
We cannot keep doing what we are doing…that is the inescapable truth. When it comes to Satan in America, the Church must quit taking a dull knife to a gun fight.
Here is an important point: Any ministry that operates without the weapons of the Holy Spirit is just spinning its wheels. Nothing can stand against the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
Would you please consider giving a thousand dollars? Maybe you are that one person who would give a $5,000 gift because God restored your finances and blessed you abundantly. Maybe $250 is a big step of faith for you but is one that you want to take.
We are calling gifts of $5,000, $1,000, $500, or $250 FOUNDER’S GIFTS because they are laying the foundation for our greatest outreaches ever. We will inscribe their name or the name of a loved one on our Wall of Remembrance and Honor. But remember, no matter what you give it will take us toward our goal of $100,000.
Maybe you meant to give more to the Gospel this year but did not get around to it. By clicking below you will be directed to our donation page and if you give by this Thursday it can be credited to your 2014 income taxes.
