THE PRICE

America faces the greatest threat she has ever faced. Now it is you who are the vessels of God who must die to self in order to get out of God’s way and confront this threat head on. Not with words alone but with undeniable signs and wonders so notable as to invoke both unbridled joy and the fear of the Lord. In view of the state of our nation, nothing less will do.

You want to see the lame walk—the blind see—and the deaf hear?  You want your days of powerless ministry to end?  You want to unlock the how and why of the way God grants power to do mighty signs and wonders?  Do you want to know why so many have asked but so few have received the gift of healing and working of miracles?

It is time to peel back misconceptions.  It is time to be brutally honest.   We have been able to create mind-bending technological breakthroughs and we can now do in an instant what previously took decades…but we will never find a shortcut to supernatural power.

I am preparing for miracle rallies in the tent in Stockton, California. I already know God’s fiery passion to work miracles in that tent. I am equally aware of the fervent hope so many have who are bringing loved ones with life-threatening diseases to be healed. It is a lot to take in. The burden of all this drove me to review the truths that have been my best friend in so many past events when I relied on nothing other than the healing power and presence of Jesus.

Read on, and learn the price of God’s miracle working power.

The Holy Spirit’s work never changes.  His process of taking raw material, such as you and I, to make a living breathing conduit for His power has never changed.  In 2,000 years, the process has not been shortened or compromised one iota.

If you seek glamour and riches, skip this message.  If you are dazzled by the people you have seen being used powerfully to perform miracles, save us both time—do not seek this power—you have no heart for it.

A young man, enthralled by the power he witnessed, ran up to Smith Wigglesworth and begged for the gift.  Smith said, “You don’t want it.  Before God is through with you, you will feel as if a thousand switch-trains have run over you.”

Before God uses you greatly, He will wound you deeply.

You still yearn to be used?  You still want power—real power, and not the fluff of so many hyper-emotional meetings?  Then proceed, with caution.

The reason for our lack of power and miracles is plain—we are just not willing to pay the price.  If you are willing, the Holy Spirit will take you through the process to power.  Here then is the price of God’s miracle working power:

It’s all about self-emptying. Listen to E. M. Bounds: “The preacher must throw himself−with all the abandon of a perfect, self-emptying faith and a self-consuming zeal−into His work for the salvation of men.  The men who take hold of and shape a generation for God must be hearty, heroic, compassionate, and fearless martyrs.”

A.W. Tozer said they would “…serve God and mankind from motives too high to be understood by the rank and file of religious retainers who today shuttle in and out of the sanctuary.  They will make no decisions out of fear, take no course out of a desire to please, accept no service for financial considerations, perform no religious act out of mere custom; nor will they allow themselves to be influenced by the love of publicity or the desire for reputation.”

Oral Roberts despaired of life itself in his hunger to understand miracles.  He was pastoring, without power, when he went to Kansas City to hear William Branham.  That encounter with the supernatural was his line in the sand.  He went into fasting and prayer.  Oral went into the prayer closet and there, he died to himself, completely.

In her desperation to understand the supernatural, Kathryn Kuhlman visited several healing meetings.  She often left disgusted and broken-hearted. Her tears and prayers reached critical mass and she made a holy vow to conduct meetings that were full of power and dignity. And she never looked back. Kathryn traced the moment of her power: she said, “I died.”  From that moment on, there was no Kathryn Kuhlman, only an utterly devoted shell.

Compassion: Oral Roberts, T.L. Osborn, Charles S. Price, and Aimee Semple McPherson all reported being overcome by compassion for the sick. Their level of caring rose to divine heights−they agonized for the lost, the sick, and the dying.

Matthew 14:14: “And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.”  Such compassion cannot be faked.  It emanates from Christ Himself.

Hatred for sickness and evil: Few understand how the anointing is a product of hatred. Hebrews 1:9 says: “You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”

Alexander Dowie saw miracles happen after a plague struck his church and killed 40 of his members in Sydney, Australia.  An inner rage transformed him until he called out to God with a pure heart, and was rewarded with so much power that it left his entire congregation free of plague.

John G. Lake saw his wife die, and it unlocked a fury against evil that swept the world with healing.

Power always has a purpose. Luke 4:17: “And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; 19 to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

The most powerful part of those verses is this phrase: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because…”  Your “because” ruins you for all other plans, purposes, and goals.  You must surrender to the one thing you are assigned to do.  You must be able to list your purpose, articulate it simply and clearly, and execute it with extreme focus.

Every vessel of God has one life message.  It is an outstanding theme of their life and a distillation of all that the Holy Spirit has ever had them say.  T. L. Osborn’s life reached millions, and his life said something astonishing−and what it said is something that he never compromised or changed.

God is giving you power to do one special work.  You cannot deviate from that divine intention. It will be a true work of God.

Wait. Acts 1:4 “And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father.”  This is the key! Abraham could not wait, and Ishmael was the result.  King Saul could not wait, and it cost him his kingdom.  Esau could not wait, and it cost him his birthright.

How long will you have to wait?  AS LONG AS IT TAKES.  All the powers of hell will challenge your decision to wait.  Satan has too much to lose if true healing power begins to flow.

It will not come easily. Your flesh will scream for release from your vigil. But, wait for true miracle power.  Do not settle for the life you had before this quest.  Your patience will be rewarded beyond measure.  The Holy Spirit will come in power!

 

 

 

God is in the most aggressive search

 

Many Christians and Pastors are in deep turmoil because God is chasing them down. The Lord God has begun a deep work in them that has made them strangers without a country. They don’t know where they fit. God won’t let them get good at something they are not supposed to be doing. They are done with business as usual.

Is there a deep work of God in you that is ruining you for this world? Are you done with the world system—especially the way it operates in the church?  Do you leave a service, thinking, “This is not it, there is something terribly wrong here.”  You can’t stomach the glitzy entertainment centers anymore. Again, I am talking about both pastors and parishioners. Believe me: BOTH preachers AND parishioners.

They are angry at egocentric preachers with grandiose, expensive, and carnal visions that have zero to do with winning souls.  They are sick of being distracted—even derailed from their first love.  Disciples are abandoning ‘attraction-church’ models in droves. Something revolutionary is happening deep inside them, because God has begun a secret work.

Honest pastors are also in divine turmoil.  The enemy condemned them for having a smaller church.  After years of blood, sweat, and tears, their churches were battered, broken, and diminished—because they can’t compete with ‘mega-church mania’.

And why can’t they compete? It’s because they have maintained their integrity!   When they see large crowds and big money pour effortlessly into churches that either hide or pervert the Gospel, it is easy to feel like a fool for staying true.  The Bible says, “Surely I have cleansed my heart in vain, And washed my hands in innocence. 14 For all day long I have been plagued, and chastened every morning.” Psalm 73:13,14.

However, our friend in Psalm 73 came to a great conclusion. After being bulldozed by the success of the wicked, he took action “16 When I thought how to understand this, It was too painful for me—17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; Then I understood their end.”  There are many pastors whose hearts are crying out for more—for a miracle they can’t even describe.

When the writer of Psalm 73 entered the sanctuary, exhausted and discouraged, the greatness of God overwhelmed him.  He saw that there is no version of this battle where Satan wins.  This is a part of the secret work God is doing in you!

A growing number of hungry hearts agree—with all its money and crowds—the compromised church did nothing to rebuke America’s sin.  The ‘seeker-friendly’ model was a house of cards that stood no chance against the onslaught being waged on the unborn, and on marriage.  While these men slept, there have been over 54 million abortions, divorce is rampant, and the institution of marriage has been perverted.  In the last 10 years we have lost battle after battle: in government, education, and the media.  We are a hopelessly divided nation, enduring a cold civil war between the Left and the Right.

 

The situation is dire. We are beyond words. The specter of President Trump who is being attacked at every turn; the economy tanking; witch hunters digging up dirt on anyone and everyone, even back to their childhood demonstrates that no human solution remains for America.

So God has taken matters into His own hands. At the approach of evil, God recruits people. He yearns to express His supremacy over evil, through purified vessels. He ruins them for everything—everything, except His Glory. At this present hour, God is conducting the most aggressive search for available servants in American history.

What He means to create—when He finds true surrender—is stunning. He will imbue them with power to perform notable miracles, and power to speak with irresistible force.

Deep, deep in my soul, where the real knowing happens—I know God is doing something new.  Every atom of my being tells me that God is doing a secret work in His people.  God is finished with hirelings. He is drawing a remnant out of corruption and into a special, supernatural nearness to Him.  They will empty themselves of everything—every ambition will be burned out. There will be nothing remaining except one purpose—to love and please the Lord Jesus Christ.

Is God doing a secret work in you?  Has God closed you in and stripped you of all enjoyment of lesser things?  Are you experiencing a divine frustration because you are supposed to be a part of something only God can do?

What if millions of Americans get so miserable that they cry out to God in total desperation?  What if their cry is too deep, and their hunger is too great, to ever be happy in a lukewarm church?  This is why the Holy Spirit is recruiting a new breed—a breed that can be trusted in the awakening that is coming.

God is doing a secret work!  He is drawing a remnant to Himself.  He is taking the prophetic core and communing with them, training them, empowering them and preparing them for one last mighty blast of power.  The Holy Spirit sees that our nation is hanging by a thread.  The death-rattle is in America’s throat.   Before God allows destruction, He is going to do one last massive miracle, and give America one last chance.

That is why God has uprooted and filled you with deep travailing. It may look like a crisis, and feel like chaos, but the dealing of God within you is right on time!  Look for these signs:

  • People no one has ever heard of will come to the forefront.  They will arrive with awesome power and piercing messages. Some will not be regular ministers.  In fact, the majority will not leave their secular careers while God is using them.  Some will be pastors who have failed and fallen, due to discouragement. They will be rebuilt, refueled, and re-ignited!

 

  • Strange locations will house massive outpourings.  Churches that have been small for years will become ground zero for the presence of God.   People will flock in from everywhere to these centers of fire and glory.  Stunning signs and wonders will rock entire communities.  Some churches will be forced to stay open 24 hours a day, just to handle the harvest.

God is doing a secret work in you.  He is making you miserable, to make you into a miracle.

A.C. Valdez was a child during the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Azusa Street. He later became an evangelist.  God showed him the future and here is what he said:

“All the electrifying adjectives in the dictionary shaken together, pressed down, and running over will not begin to describe the soon-to-come, greatest outpouring of the Holy Spirit of all times. It is what the Bible calls, “the latter rain”.  You are going to see lay members carry out an amazing ministry through gifts of the Holy Spirit.  There will be wholesale cures of “incurable” conditions, healings of the blind, deaf, dumb, and handicapped, and creative miracles that will strain the imagination.  For those born without eyes, ears, fingers, arms or legs—or those who have lost them through disease or accidents—God will make new ones.  Many astonishing miracles will happen to bring on an international Christian breakthrough.”

I believe A.C. Valdez is not talking about a time far off in the future.  He is talking about now, because, my friend, it is now or never.

 

 

A MOTHER’S DAY MIRACLE IN LAS VEGAS

Our tent went up in a dangerous part of Las Vegas in May of 2018. The site was surrounded by poverty, violence, and despair. That was the spot that God chose for us. We learned of the needs of this area in a very unusual way: Prayer tents.
These smaller tents offered free prayer to anyone who would ask. Locals simply entered the tent and teams would pray for them.  That is when we discovered the number one thing that burned in the hearts of these inner city moms. They all prayed for protection for their sons who were caught in the crossfire of gangs.
That is when an idea from the Lord ignited our outreach. We instructed moms to tell their children that this year for Mother’s Day they didn’t want flowers, chocolate, or a dinner in a restaurant−tell your sons and daughters you want them to come to the tent and hear the Gospel.
No sooner had this idea come, than we got a second one from the Lord: A raffle to pay one month’s rent to the winning mom.
We gave out the raffle tickets on Sunday, Mother’s Day, and told them the prize would be given out the next night. The Monday night was also designated as the night the mothers would be accompanied by their children.
Monday the tent filled up early. Soon it was time for us to give away the prize of one month’s rent. That is when something extraordinary began to happen. When we called out the winning ticket, a woman began shouting thanks to God, but not for the reason you might think.

She exclaimed that she had prayed that God would let her win, so that she could give it to a mom who could not be at the tent meeting.   “I want to give this to a woman I know who has two young children. She is in a wheelchair, and lives in a trailer park.”
The next day Mechelle, Frank Saldana, and some of our team went to the trailer park. They walked into the manager’s office and asked the lady in charge if she could tell us how to find that mother.  The manager began crying when she heard why we were looking this mom.  “I was going to evict her today! It’s my job, but I hated having to do this. This is a miracle.”
Mechelle, Frank, and the team sat with this wonderful woman in the wheelchair that was facing homelessness that very day. Not only was her rent made current, but Frank gave her a card for Inner City Action, and said, “Don’t worry about where you are going to live, just call us and we will make sure you will be okay.”
Tuesday night a businessman came up to us and said, “I need to pay the rent for both of these moms.”
Let’s go back to the original Monday night. We had found a Mother’s Day weapon! The tent was jammed with moms, sons, and daughters. I preached a simple direct call to surrender to Christ. The altar was flooded with young people, and mothers all over the tent got the greatest Mother’s day gift of their lives−the gift of knowing they would have their children with them in heaven, for eternity!

We wish all the moms the very best and blessed Mother’s day!

 

 

 

YOU MUST TAKE THE FIGHT TO THE GATES OF HELL

 

I knew I had reached a point of desperation that matched Jeremiah’s promise.  “And you will seek me and you will find me when you search for me with all your heart.”  The most shocking thing happened next. I recall that point of desperation and the cry of my heart: How do we reach America? The answer was stunning: It would involve risking my very life. It would be the most dangerous thing I have ever done.

The words thundered: “Then, you must take the fight to the gates of hell.” I must remind you of the most vivid dream of my life—the kind where you don’t know if you are awake or asleep.  I saw Highway 99. I saw it from Red Bluff all the way to Southern California. This artery of the great Central Valley is special to God. In the dream I saw a river—Ezekiel’s river, flowing with great healing properties, trees of righteousness on both banks. The voice in my dream said, “This is a corridor of glory.”

I did not understand why I was getting this dream. It was hidden in the Spirit until just recently. It portends a miracle of a magnitude I cannot fathom−especially when you consider the condition of Sacramento, Silicon Valley, and Hollywood. At this moment, these bastions of California have declared war—war on the Federal Government—war on the church—and has even declared war on science. For that matter, it has declared war on anyone or anything that disagrees with their radical agenda. How far gone are California Leftists?

At his own inauguration, Governor Gavin presented neither a vision nor a plan for the new “nation-state” of California—he simply flew into a rant against President Trump and emphasized that California is a total sanctuary state. Silicon Valley alone possesses power that boggles the mind. This bastion of technology and social media controls information like no other agency on earth. Right now, social media is an unchallenged mouthpiece to billions, and it is under the control of Leftist atheists.

Their power to brainwash young minds is beyond staggering. They have the power to shut down any voice they wish—and the voices they shut down are notably Christian, conservative, and patriotic. Facebook shut down Franklin Graham! If that doesn’t give you a chill, nothing will. If they won’t hesitate to silence the chief voice of Evangelical Christianity…what will they do to the rest of us?

California Assembly Bill 2943 has been delayed. It’s the bill that will ban the Bible by coming in through the back door. It means to ban any literature that suggests that intervention is needed for anyone living a gay lifestyle. I quote: “Contemporary science recognizes that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender is part of the natural spectrum of human identity and is not a disease, disorder, or illness.” and, “(i) (1) “Sexual orientation change efforts” means any practices that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation. This includes efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions, or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same sex.”    https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201720180AB2943

Faith doesn’t matter, fact doesn’t matter, science doesn’t matter, and now, outcome doesn’t matter either. Sacramento politicians are one big ‘never mind’. ‘Never mind’ that California is dead-last in education and a slew of other quality of life categories. ‘Never mind’ that they are spending like a thief with a stolen credit card. ‘Never mind’ that innocent people are murdered by illegal aliens that they protect from being arrested. California politicians, tech moguls, Hollywood and media have made an unmistakable declaration. They will remake America in the miserable and decrepit image of California. They are the black hole that can suck a nation into its abyss.

What can we possibly do about all this? What we must do is put our natural mind aside and obey God!  What God says will stand. What God commands will triumph over the enemy. Never forget that California has been the catalyst to historic revivals and has launched worldwide Christian ministries. Those wells are still in the heart of California. That dream has lain dormant in my spirit until now, but now God has ordered me to take the tent down the Hwy. 99 corridor.

 

Living Proof California follows the route I saw in my dream. Marysville has already been touched. Then Paradise received Beauty for Ashes.  The tent crusade in Stockton is only 17 days away. Fresno and Dinuba are already confirmed.  The rest of our targeted cities are in the works. Our goal is to do an outdoor rally in Southern California and culminate everything near the State Capitol in Sacramento.  If you live near the 99 corridor, the tent is coming to a site near you.  Will these crusades turn California around? That is totally in God’s hands. What I do know is the Lord will hit demons hard in California. All we can do, and must do, is obey the voice of God.

The greatest breakthrough we have had is Stockton, where the Lord opened the door for us, to give us the very best location. Remember: that crusade is only 17 days from now!

“I am asking you to obey God by starting to pray right now.  Pray for the workers to come into the harvest. Pray for protection as we expect high resistance from the enemy. Pray for abundant provision because we have invested massive amounts of money to make this invasion possible.

The urgent message of this newsletter is this: The best way to touch America right now is to invade California. I couldn’t understand that at first, but now I do. It is the way of God to take the fight directly to the main threat. We are going to take the threat to the gates of hell. Literally. I am hoping, with a great hope, that you will see this, and join us!

Acts 4:29-30 says, “Now Lord, Behold their threats and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they 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 Son Jesus.”

California is a great threat to America. This state may have deep perversion and intellectual arrogance, but none of these things can withstand the mighty power of God. The Holy Spirit is at work to empower and guide a mighty invasion of California’s Central Valley. Pray! Get involved.  No matter where or what country you live in…you can pray! I feel a miracle is on the horizon!

WILL YOU?

Will you put away your toys and take up the mighty weapons of God?

Future generations of Christians—if there will be any—will be profoundly baffled by us.  They will ask, “Why?  Why did we let trivial and foolish matters eat up so much of our time?  They will agonize over our shallowness.  They will cringe at the trivial things that were our amusements.

But above all, they will be horrified that we played all these foolish games against the backdrop of madness and perversion all around us.  In a time of raging wickedness—while we still had the chance—why didn’t we rise in the power of the Holy Spirit?  Why didn’t we deliver an effective challenge to the lies, addictions, and brainwashing of our time?

Not everyone can bear what I am about to say.  The fair-weather Christian and the make-believer will shrink before the high calling I am about to describe.  But those who heed this call, and awaken to do their duty, deserve the love and thanks of every true child of God in America.

Paul said, “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” -1 Corinthians 13:11

It is childish to linger in stupefying religious echo chambers.  It is childish to mingle with delicate, debilitated, and depleted believers.  It is childish to hide behind the towering lie that our God is unable to build mighty warriors.

I am looking you right in the eye, with a long and steady gaze.  I am mustering all the conviction in my soul.  I am begging you…PUT AWAY YOUR TOYS AND TAKE UP THE MIGHTY WEAPONS OF GOD!

Tyranny, like Hell, will not loosen its grip easily.  But you have this great comfort—the greater the conflict the more glorious the final victory.  You will be granted the honor and thrill of front line participation in the greatest thing God has ever done in the earth.

It is time to pay the price.  Things gotten cheaply are lightly esteemed.  The gold you seek is worth every drop of sweat—every mournful tear—every sacrifice.  (see: Rev. 3:18)

Satan trembles at your advance to this higher calling.  Evil quakes at your deliverance from compromise and cowardice.  Hell asks, “Will they actually take up their rightful weapons and do us great harm?”   Let your soul roar back an eternal, “YES!”

What can we do about the demons that are strangling America?  Can we dismantle their ramparts?  They have brought bitter division, mass addiction, and total deception.  Can we stop them?  Not only can we, it is our sworn duty to tear them down!

The Bible says “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God…” 2 Corinthians 10:4,5

If we can’t tear down strongholds, then God is guilty of child abuse of the highest order, for commanding us to do something that cannot be done.  If our weapons are not mighty, He is guilty of letting Paul awaken a deep hope that can never be fulfilled.  The whole point of 2 Corinthians 10: 4 and 5 was to provoke the church to destroy the strongholds of Satan by taking up the mighty weapons of God.

The Bible says, “cast down every high thing.”  The traitorous preaching and teaching of today says there is very little we can do.  So many preachers today remind us, “it’s all in God’s hands.” That may seem a comforting thought, but it is wrong. It is thinly disguised fatalism—and it creates passivity.  Everywhere you look in the Bible, the Word of God 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 to 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.  He is looking for someone He can use to turn the tide of America.

If there is one question this blog asks, it is this:  Are you so filled with holy rage that you are willing to lay down every impediment to provide God with an opportunity to vindicate His name before this blasphemous generation?  WILLL YOU PUT AWAY YOUR TOYS?

Here is your great promise: When God sees you take up His mighty weapons of warfare—in the Name of Jesus—and attempt the impossible—God Himself will muster all the resources of heaven to bring you total victory!

Please pray for the tent crusade in Stockton CA and if you know anyone near there get them to the tent!

AFTER A BRUTAL ATTACK

After a brutal attack I have won a stunning personal victory against the devil.

Maybe you could sense it in my writings. Yeah, I was under a brutal attack. I was threatened. But anyone who knows me knows that threats just fire me up.

Here are some verses that describe us to a tee: “Now it happened in Iconium that they went together to the synagogue of the Jews, and so spoke that a great multitude both of the Jews and of the Greeks believed. But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brethren. Therefore they stayed there a long time, speaking boldly in the Lord, Who was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.” –Acts 14:1-3

I will not bore you with the details of the attack. What I will tell you is that when I decided to put up our tent in Stockton, California, it became total war. Satan told me to stay away from Stockton. He told me he would destroy me if I came to Stockton.

Then we got hit from all sides. The devil stirred up everyone he could. He tried to attack my body with a strange weariness that threatened to cloud my mind. He went after our resources. He even tried to bring a vicious division. You name it and he did it.  But why is Stockton such a big deal to the devil? Let me explain.

A victory in our tent in Stockton will have more explosive power than our last three crusades combined. Think about what I just said.  Stockton sits at the top of almost every category for murder, prostitution, and homelessness in America. Often teetering on the edge of bankruptcy, this city can’t even hire police. But I believe this city is a catalyst for something much greater…something that could hit the whole State of California.

But we know the reason we have been attacked so violently. The devil is hiding a secret in California. It is a secret that he guards with unbridled tenacity. That secret is the hunger and openness of the average person in California.

But here is the biggest reason: Stockton is our Jericho. Think about Israel. Their first few battles in the Promised Land were skirmishes. It was at Jericho that God displayed awesome power in bringing down the walls with a shout.  That victory brought fear upon the other Kings in Canaan, and brought divine momentum.

The enemies of God believe we can’t turn the tide in California.  Even so, they have admitted that the tent meetings have, so far, surprised them.  Stockton is going to be a whole different story. They know it− and the devil knows it.

Why is Stockton our Jericho? Stockton is a major gateway in our journey to the southern end of Highway 99.  We call Highway 99 the ‘Corridor of Glory’. Stockton is the first in a string of valley cities that has been brutalized by the one-two punch of drugs and the Leftist wacko policies of California.

Why is Stockton our Jericho? Because a gigantic wall came down. That wall surrounded the Weber Point Event Center.  The Weber Point Event Center is the most visible and prized location for any event in Stockton. To say that the devil didn’t want us to have it is a vast understatement. He fought us tooth and nail.  But we won!

This venue is so vital that just telling leaders about it has energized them for this crusade. But like all things worth getting, it is very expensive. However, you and I both know it is time for radical and bold acts of faith.

After Paradise I had no energy for this next great open door. That is when we stood our ground on the authority of the Cross, the Blood, and the Name of Jesus.  Now, demons have retreated. Now, resources are being restored. Now, we are ready.

If at any time Mario Murillo Ministries has been a blessing to you, please hear my cry. We need you to rally to our cause.

HELP US GET THE WORD OUT! We have spent a vast amount just to get to this point. We have added vital equipment and supplies. Everything is in place, except the one thing we need—WE NEED TO GET THE WORD OUT. I am not talking about Christians. I am talking about getting lost souls.

What could be more heartbreaking? Imagine winning all these victories—breaking through all these barriers, only to falter at the finish line? If we want the homeless, the addicts, and gang members in the tent—and not only them, but students, business leaders, politicians, and the power brokers of Stockton—we must go and get them.

I am not saying we don’t have help—many strong churches are working alongside us. Plus, we have an even greater advantage: Stockton is the headquarters of Frank Saldana and Inner City Outreach. They have favor in the homeless camps and on the streets. They are a major force in this outreach.

WE NEED A PRAYER SURGE! I need intercessors all over America to fervently cry out to God for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Stockton, California.  God has already warned me to be ready to see miracles—notable healings in the tent. There is a massive harvest in Stockton! Pray the Lord of the Harvest to send forth workers into this harvest. Pray with an understanding of the Jericho-factor. This could be the fuse to light the explosion of statewide miracles!

Think about it. In just a few weeks, history could be made in California!  Could this be the turning point we have so deeply yearned for and believed would come? Join with us! Now watch this one minute video:

ON THE VERGE

Smith Wigglesworth came to America from Britain in 1914.  What people saw in his meetings defied all human explanation:

“Smith Wigglesworth, often referred to as ‘the Apostle of Faith,’ was one of the pioneers of the Pentecostal revival that occurred a century ago. Without human refinement and education he was able to tap into the infinite resources of God to bring divine grace to multitudes. Thousands came to Christian faith in his meetings, hundreds were healed of serious illnesses and diseases, as supernatural signs followed his ministry.  A deep intimacy with his heavenly Father and an unquestioning faith in God’s Word brought spectacular results and provided an example for all true believers of the Gospel.” (Smith Wigglesworth.com).

Smith was far ahead of his time, and his faithful witness led to the next phase that was needed.

Divine healing had fallen into disrepute.  Meetings were often fraught with emotionalism.  Charlatans whipped audiences into frenzies.  Most healing testimonies were sketchy at best.

Things were also bad outside the church.  America was in the grip of the fear of impending war.  Psychiatry was replacing faith.  A whole generation was racing away from God.   Preachers were at a loss as to what to do about it.

Then in the 1920s, Aimee Semple McPherson came to Los Angeles. Her crusades across America filled the biggest venues. At one point, around 15% of the City of Los Angeles attended the church she built, Angelus Temple.

The smoke of God’s glory appeared in Angelus Temple. Miracles flowed freely. Aimee was not just a faith healer−she was also a worthy opponent to any atheist foolish enough to debate her.

1946: Enter William Branham.  The atmosphere in his meetings is low key.  There is no attempt to manipulate the people.  Branham tells the audience when the angel of the Lord is present—a statement that should sound preposterous, except that astounding things start happening.

Oral Roberts once told me, “There were no hard cases for Branham while he was enveloped by the anointing.”  Growths vanished, lifeless limbs awakened, blind eyes opened.

American historian, David Edwin Harrell Jr. described Branham as:

“An unlikely leader….his preaching was halting and simple beyond belief. But William Branham became a prophet to a generation. A small, meek, middle-aged man with piercing eyes, he held audiences spellbound with tales of constant communication with God and angels. Night after night, before thousands of awed believers, he discerned the diseases of the sick and pronounced them healed.”

Few men have ever been endowed with the raw supernatural power of William Branham.  There, for the entire world to see−and for medical science to test−were signs and wonders that were incontrovertible.

Then in 1947 a young Oral Roberts went to Kansas City to hear Branham.  The experience led him to resign his church in Enid, Oklahoma and obey God’s mandate to “take My healing power to your generation.” More than any healing ministry since Jesus, Oral indeed took God’s healing power to his generation.

He dared to put the miracles of Jesus on prime time television. God used him to found Oral Roberts University which has sent amazing leaders around the world.

Kathryn Kuhlman: When she began to minister she faced an onslaught of criticism for being a divorced woman preacher…God had to do startling miracles to open doors for her ministry.  America got over her past and flocked to her services.  She set attendance records in the largest venues.

The miracles of healing were documented and became the most convincing body of evidence for miracles that the medical community has ever seen.   Renowned surgeons, heart specialists, and medical experts sat in the front rows of her meetings.

However her greatest contribution was her revelation of the Holy Spirit.  She was in Pittsburgh teaching something that was very new and real to her on the person of the Holy Spirit when a woman who was neither called out nor prayed over was instantly healed of terminal stomach cancer.

The disarming simplicity of her message on the Holy Spirit can be misleading.  Sometimes there is nothing more powerful than simplicity.   The church in general at that time, had fallen into a powerless funk in reaction to the “God is dead” movement and the surge of drugs in the youth culture.

 

The same Holy Spirit that took, as she said, “a nobody” and raised her up to alter the course of history should inspire us to follow her example.

Now we, in 2019, have come to another terrible moment for the Pentecostal and the Charismatic movements in America.  Compromise has hit us from the most unlikely sources.   A pandemic moral and political cowardice paralyzes our pulpits.  The wholesale attack on the constitutionally protected rights of freedom of speech and freedom of religion has met only token resistance from “Spirit-filled” pastors.

Today we have widespread reports of “revivals” that are hugely disappointing.  In our heart of hearts we know they are total hype.  Healings are claimed but not confirmed.

We have witnessed the rise of an entire “revival” industry that hawks imaginary authority. People are reveling in spiritual fantasy worlds, blending astral projection and UFOs with Christianity.

Travelling ministries today sell high-pitch ecstasies that promise towering results over the enemy, but deliver zero impact on the culture.

I have my suspicions.  I wonder if the voices that scream revival the loudest are simply trying to drown out their own unbelief, or if the abuse of GRACE−that has pastors drinking hard liquor after church−is merely defeatism that says, “What’s the use in trying?”

The times are dark, so dark in fact, that they carry a strange hope.  Maybe we are finally, finally willing to shed the stubborn sins that have imprisoned us in religious irrelevancy and deception.

A real hunger for truth is replacing ‘political correctness’.   Donald Trump is a symptom of widespread anger with ‘tolerance’ and ‘political correctness’.   We have become a ‘fed up’ culture.  People agree with President Trump about America, and that is why all of the criticism the media is throwing at him does not stick.

Perhaps we are witnessing the creation of a positive vacuum in Spirit-filled believers and in society.  This is our best opportunity to save America.  This vacuum is causing both Pentecostals and Charismatics to replace empty religion with a real relationship with Jesus, and that is where the key to power lies.

Many believers are angry with politically correct preaching.  The cry now is, “Quit feeding us junk food!”  We want to experience the power of God and are no longer satisfied with just a ‘feel good’ message.  Look around you… the hunger for truth is rising.

A true desperation is replacing our attitude of entitlement.  Americans know that they are in danger of losing their future to our government.  They no longer harbor the fantasy that tells us we’re going to pull out of this just because we are America.

Many Christians realize that they have never known true desperation until now.  They don’t want church to make them feel good anymore, they want church to put them right and make them strong.  They want something real so badly that they will take it straight—not sugar-coated or diluted.

A true spirit of prayer is replacing artificial prayer.   Believers are waking up to the fact that their prayers have been wrong.  Their prayers were filled with agendas.  Pastors prayed as if prayer was a booster rocket for their pet program.   Prayer is returning to the raw, unconditional surrender that it was supposed to be all along.

The real message here is not the arrival of a man, but of an era of explosive miracles.  That is what I am sensing and expecting.   What we have been waiting for will come in an unexpected package—as these 5 vessels did.

Today, the Spirit-filled movement finds itself in the same predicament.  Once again, we are mired by division and emotionalism.   Only this time it is much, much worse. Unless the church prays down the supernatural healing of God, America is on the verge of total collapse, bankruptcy, and moral anarchy. But I feel something stirring that man cannot stop. I believe we are on the verge of the explosion of divine healing miracles. Why?

Because I believe we have finally reached the place of total desperation.   Maybe now we will trade the unreliable for the undeniable.   Let it be, Oh, God.
