IT IS THE MOMENT I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR.

I do not fear man. God has taught me to obey His voice and no other. There have been countless times I wanted to react against injustice and evil when the Holy Spirit restrained me. I fear no government agency. That is the work of Christ in my life and not personal bravery.

We did not shut down our tent crusades because we feared man or virus. That is a point that I must drive home to you. The rest of this will not have the impact I am praying for unless you clearly understand that.

Unlike a church that owns their own building, for a tent crusade you must get a permit. No permits were available after the shutdown. I was fully prepared to obtain private land and force the issue. But God said no.

Being sidelined while California was being destroyed by a virus and her government was torture. Again and again, I thought about how desperately needed our tent meetings were.

I thought of Jesus waiting to heal the sick until He was thirty years old. How much misery He saw. How many times He must have yearned to intervene.

When I saw the riots. When I saw the spike in murder, addiction and suicide. I can’t describe to you my yawning frustration.

As the months passed my inner pain grew worse. I pleaded with the Lord to release me. Surely the risk of jail would be better than sitting on the sidelines.

The Holy Spirit never fully explained why we had to shut down. Of course we wanted people to be safe but that was not the main reason. Someday I know God will tell me why I had to wait. As soon as He tells me, I promise, I will tell you.

Our internet ministry and social media exploded during the shutdown. It seemed I should be content to enjoy this new found success. But I am a soul-winning warrior. Always have been, and always will be! If all I ever do is make videos and post things on the internet it will surely kill me.

In the last few weeks the fire in my bones intensified until I despaired of holding it in! I could not just hear, I could feel the anguish of lost souls in California. I was on the brink of an eruption. Then at the precise moment…it happened today. God spoke.

“REOPEN THE TENT CRUSADES.” Instantly I felt peace and excitement. It is from that peace and excitement that I make the following announcement:

We will reopen the Living Proof Crusade along Highway 99 on Sunday October 11. The tent goes up on the beautiful Granite Park where we have several acres of parking and direct access to hurting neighborhoods. How did we get this site? Well, you just have to believe in miracles my friend.

 

Not only that, but the tent will be up for 6 days! The meetings will be at 6:30 PM every night from Sunday October 11th until Friday October 16th. But there is so much more to tell you!

An army of trained and anointed workers will descend on Fresno. They will carry the message of hope so gravely needed in this hour. The acute loneliness, despair, and addiction will be confronted and healed in Jesus’ name!

We have purchased new equipment that will more than satisfy any concerns about cleanliness. We have luxury bathroom trailers. We will take great pains to make sure the tent, chairs and grounds are spotless!

Most of all, we expect the anointing to flow in a measure we have never known before. It will not surprise me if we see impossible healings that will rock the medical community.

I am preparing 6 original soul winning/healing messages—messages born out of my time of being sequestered!

Our expectancy for this tent crusade like crackling electricity! We have never felt expectancy like we do right now.

These verses perfectly describe what it will be like, what will happen under our tent:

Isaiah 61: 1 “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn…”

Out of all of those words, one jumps out at me: vengeance! It is time to make the devil pay for what he has done to California and our nation! It is time for vengeance on all the lies, political tyranny and suffering in America.

Forgive me…but is it wrong to hope that on October 11 a fire from heaven will fall—a fire that will not be quenched until it engulfs the whole nation with revival!

It is not a coincidence that this tent crusade will occur right before the most urgent election of our life. For that reason I am calling on all who read this to begin to pray fervently for this crusade.

Under normal circumstances—which is something we have not been under for a long time—we would not press you to travel to Fresno to be a part of a historic relaunch of our Living Proof Tent crusades. This is a once in lifetime opportunity for you to be a part of an epic outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

Remember: Sunday October 11- Friday October 16th at 6:30 PM Granite Park 3978 N Cedar Ave, Fresno, CA 93726.

The shutdown is over! The vision resumes with more power and momentum than ever! Satan will pay dearly for what he has done to California and America.

To all of the partners of Mario Murillo Ministries let me make this official. Your prayers and support kept us strong and ready. You faith in the calling of this ministry is being rewarded with a magnificent comeback. So we will be rejoicing over a great harvest of souls. The addict, the suicidal teenager, the gang banger, and the victimized citizens of California are going to be visited by Jesus in glory and fire.  Hallelujah!

I AM STANDING AGAINST THE DEMONIC POWER OVER CALIFORNIA

Under our Tent in Fresno, bodies will be healed of sickness. The power of depression will be broken. We know this because it has happened, again and again. A miracle can happen to you or to someone you love.

Acts 14:3 says, “Nevertheless, they stayed there a long time, preaching boldly, and the Lord proved their message was from Him by giving them power to do great miracles.”

That verse says it all. We welcome anyone to come and to see the proof that the message of Jesus is for every soul—no matter how sick, addicted or hopeless they may feel.

Here is our message to California: In our Tent, Jesus will break the chains of sickness, addiction, and despair. In our Tent, the rules of the street die. In our Tent, you will find the Life you were born to live.

An army of prayer warriors is already locked in targeted intercession to break the power of Satan in California. Christians are in training to put boots on the ground. These prayer-covered workers will soon touch California’s most forsaken: from homeless camps to crack-houses. Everyone, from the down-and-out to the up-and-in will receive our witness.  Our workers will not bring just food and clothing—they will bring the anointing to heal and to set captives free.

While I was in the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, NC, the exhibit of Billy preaching in the Eastern Bloc countries brought me to tears. Not long after Billy preached there, Communism fell in these nations. Not only that, but it fell in the exact same order of Billy’s visits. I thought, “What an amazing miracle!”

Then I thought, “Why not such a miracle for California?” Los Angeles has a great store of the buried treasure of past revivals. From L.A. the greatest outpouring since the Book of Acts emerged, the miracle on Azusa Street. The greatest evangelists of the 20th Century have held meetings there: from Aimee McPherson to Billy Graham. There, the greatest youth revival in American history was born—the Jesus People Movement.

Highway 99 is our assignment, for a reason. Millions who live along this corridor are suffering, and their quality of life has dropped drastically because of the lockdown. But the big difference is that Central Valley families think differently, and something is stirring there!

I hear the rumble in this valley of millions who are sick to death of the whole mess. They don’t want what their kids are being taught in the schools. They don’t want drag queens reading to their children. They do not want Black Lives Matter or Antifa burning down their city. They don’t want any part of the medicated, mentally dulled elites who compose the government of California. They don’t want this disaster to continue. They yearn for hope!

You are the heart of the mass crusade we are holding in Fresno. Your prayers, support and love have taken on muscle. You will be able to feel the impact of your faith. The diseases that are oppressing many are going to be healed, because of your faith.

Can you feel the urgency of this tent crusade in Fresno?  Let God fill you with expectation and a spirit of prayer!

Let God speak to your heart! There is a place in these meetings for you. There is a miracle waiting there for you. You will see God use you in a way you have never imagined. No matter what the level of power of your gift is currently, let me tell you, it will go to a new level.  Do you fear witnessing? I assure you that an inner fire will make you as bold as a lion. Not only that, you will return rejoicing over the lives God has used you to bring to salvation. Come along, stand beside me, and become the Christian warrior you never imagined you could be.

I can’t overstate the urgency of prayer. Please, won’t you begin praying for us right now? In the coming days you will be able to volunteer to help in this historic tent crusade.

DO THESE FIVE THINGS DURING THE SHUTDOWN

You can’t dwell on the frightening images you will see on cable news. You can’t cave in to the hysteria.  There is something extremely important you must take care of.

After you have taken every precaution necessary for remaining safe—after you have settled it in your soul to remain strong in the Lord, wholly trusting in Him, it will be time for you to fight back.

Everything in me tells me these are the most important days you will know in our lifetime. Waste them, and it will be the greatest regret of your life.

Turn your days at home into the most important breakthrough ever. Turn feelings of helplessness into fuel for an amazing outcome. These are days to let God do a shocking new work inside you.

It all begins with the story of Paul being arrested and put in prison. Satan put Paul in prison, intending to inflict massive damage on Christianity. He thought Paul could no longer win souls, and he could not teach the fledgling churches that desperately needed his Apostleship. In fact, he couldn’t do anything…except for one thing.

He began writing. And writing would be the most devastating thing Paul would ever do to Satan’s kingdom. If Paul hadn’t been confined, he might never have had the time to write.  How could he possibly imagine his writings would impact billions?  Paul ended up writing 60% of the New Testament. Selah.

Jailing Paul was the stupidest mistake Satan ever made, besides crucifying Christ. Now let me show you how to make this confinement in your home, his next major mistake.

1. Model faith to your children. Settle it in your soul that God will pay your bills, protect your job and restore what you have lost. Don’t speak fear and doubt in your home! The greatest lesson you will ever model for your children—and the greatest gift you will ever leave to them—is to confess that everything that has been lost will be restored. Because when this is over and God comes through—as you know He will—they will remember and apply these lessons in their lives, whenever they are threatened. The greatest thing your children can watch you do is trust in God.

2. Read the Bible. Dump all the questionable prophetic words and conspiracy theories. Some in the prophetic camp are losing credibility because they foolishly predicted this plague would leave suddenly. Some even set a date—one that will likely prove them wrong.  In the Old Testament such “prophets” would have been stoned. It is this lack of consequence in the prophetic camp that has wreaked havoc and left many unprepared for the storm that is upon us.

The same applies to conspiracies. How much clearer can the Bible be? Isaiah 8:12-13, “Do not say, ‘A conspiracy,’ concerning all that this people call a conspiracy, neither be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled. The Lord of Armies, Him you shall hallow; let Him be your fear, and let Him be your dread.”

It’s all over the internet, and religious broadcasting: ‘There is a worldwide secret society! It’s the devil and his vessels! Nancy Pelosi cooked up coronavirus in a Chinese laboratory!’

Stop needing a “word from God” from people. Stop digging into controversy. In 2 Timothy 2:23 Paul warned, “Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels.”

Instead, read the Bible! Now that you have a lot of time, get the Word of God in you. That is the most powerful protection, and the best way to understand how to weather this storm.

3. Make a list of goals for this down-time, and work hard to meet those goals. Already, you see how many things have stolen your time.  You see how many things that previously cluttered your life, seem unimportant now. Because you are a child of God, nothing of yours that is vital will be stolen. Your job and your business will be brought back to life. Therefore, choose to see this as a kind of paid vacation. Paid by God.

It is a time to make overdue changes, and big and bold plans for the future. To do that, you must get to work. That means no binge-watching Netflix! It means you seek the heart of God and ask Him to show you the goals He wants you to accomplish. Write those goals out, and make the righteous choices that give those goals the very best chance of coming to pass.

Paul wrote much of the New Testament while he was in forced confinement. Great projects will be born—projects that may swallow up the wrong ones you had before.

Lastly make the most important goal list of all: the things you are never are never going back to.

4.Turn prayer into a habit. Inspiration will lead you to pray, but you must decide to form the habit that will keep you praying. The chilling fact is that if you do not pray during this pandemic, you will never pray at all. Let God deliver you from the greatest hindrances to prayer that I know of: impulse prayer and feeling-based prayer.

Right now, forget about how long you pray. Focus on praying each and every day. Behaviorists have shown that it takes doing something 35 times in a row, before it becomes a habit. If you create that habit, and deepen that habit, you will own life’s greatest skill.  James 5:16, “Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

5. Focus on personal repentance, not national repentance. You do it! Don’t wait for others, or even think about other people’s repentance. People have been babbling about national repentance as if it was something other people need to do. We don’t see national repentance happening yet, so don’t wait for it to happen. Repent on your own!

We do not even see widespread repentance among preachers. Have you heard many preachers on social media admit they’ve been wrong?  We are flooded with messages from preachers. But have you heard one major pastor or preacher repent or promise that they will run church differently than they did before? Do you see any preacher who isn’t just chomping at the bit to restart the same old thing? I promise you, unless deep repentance takes place, you will be shocked at how unchanged the American church will be, after all of this. Think about this: How much really changed after 9/11?

Remember, God is judging America as much because of the world, as because of the church.  The carnal church has left us open to this disaster. And yet, without repentance, we have zero reason to believe it won’t go back to exactly the way it was before. In other words, they will have learned nothing from the pandemic. They just don’t get it.

We pray that God will not force the issue of repentance by extending and deepening our national crisis, until America implodes completely. But you have to wonder how they can all say they want this to be over, and yet they still will not repent.

But, we must not set our hope on that. Our hope is founded on the knowledge that we must repent before God—and that is personal repentance. That will lead to the real miracle of mercy. You see, you can stand as a priest between the sins of America, the sins of the church, and God. That is true intercession. There is a righteous core of believers who can turn this plague away. (read Numbers chapter 16)

Remember, God said He would spare Sodom and Gomorrah if there were just 10 righteous people. We are not going to rebuke this away; we are going to repent it away. You have the power to stand between God and this virus.

We must give God what He is seeking. We can’t worry about how many others are interceding, even if there are only a few. The promises of the Lord are never vague! Neither are the conditions to His promises.

2 Chronicles 7:14, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today this blog reached a lifetime total of 10 Million views

Today, Mario Murillo’s blog reached a lifetime total of 10 million views. That is huge by any standard, but the real story is much bigger. And the only reason we are telling you about this, is to give God all the glory for what is being accomplished through this humble little blog.
To begin with, no one knows exactly how many have read the blog. Ten million is the number that the left-leaning social media has reported to have read the blog. The real number is doubtless far greater.
We know that certain subjects are routinely and hilariously shadow-banned. Shadow-banning is the act of blocking or partially blocking a user or their content from an online community, such that it will not be readily apparent to the user that they have been banned.
Another form of banning is to throttle the number of views. We don’t know how this is done or who is doing it. The way we notice it is this: We see on Facebook that our blog has been shared 1,000 times, but it shows up on our site as if only 700 people read it. Hilarious!
Only God knows how many have read the blog or would have read it without these restraints.  If you have tried to share this blog, then you know the games that social media plays with it, all the time.
 This blog began under the Obama administration. At that time, it was taboo for preachers to rebuke and declare the Word of God to politicians. In fact, many churches closed their doors to Mario because of his daily exposure of the overt wickedness of the Left, and his continual warnings about the silence of the church.
Fast forward to today and you can see the shift. Preachers are openly declaring righteousness and taking stands against leftist socialism. We believe this blog has played a part in that shift.  Paul said, “And most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much bolder to speak the word without fear” (Philippians 1:14).
From here, we will move on to even greater breakthroughs. This blog will not be tamed and we have certainly seen God unchain it, again and again. His counsel will go forth to the nations!
Register to get the blog sent directly to your email. We expect social media to start blocking it again as the election gets closer.
Finally, we thank God for all of you who have borne the battle with us and helped make this blog the amazing force it is today. By His grace, our blog will continue to be a powerful voice for the kingdom of God, until the day Jesus returns.
THANK YOU!
The staff of Mario Murillo Ministries

Will the Holy Spirit fall on thousands of churches this Pentecost Sunday?

It won’t surprise me if the Holy Spirit falls in a powerful way on many churches this Pentecost Sunday. I can’t shake the feeling that some shockingly supernatural manifestation will come upon those brave churches who know it is the right time to open their doors. It would not surprise me if glorious worship turns into an outbreak of miracles and revival.

Why do I suspect this? It’s because of many eerie similarities between this coming Day of Pentecost, May 31st, and the Day of Pentecost that birthed the church.

1. They were all in one accord in one place. The first similarity is unity. True, our unity looks a lot different than theirs. They were with one accord in one place. We, because of the lockdown, are in one accord in many places.

The church in America has been pushed into a corner. Long before the pandemic gave leftist leaders an excuse to persecute Christian churches, they were spoiling for a fight. The attack on our faith has recently caused some high-level Christian leaders to abandon their walk with the Lord and betray Christ.

Others have gone the opposite way, and have pressed deeper into God.  Across social media, you can hear similar confessions and declarations that show ministers are dropping side issues and are sincerely crying out for revival.  You can hear their messages quoting similar verses and their messages sharing a common bond of urgency—to see America repent. And not just ministers.

These are pastors, and regular Christians who are praying to go deeper. They are busy saying to each other, “the sideshow is not God, there’s more! No way can Satan win if we take our stand on the authority of the Cross!” 

Preachers who had significant theological differences have seen the light and are reaching out to leaders they might have shunned before. Many preachers have come to repentance. They realize now that fluff and distraction had pulled them away from their first love. 

Of course, not everyone has repented, and there are many foolish and disheartening heresies flooding the internet. Nevertheless, a rare and righteous core is coming into unity.

Persecution has distilled us to our current level of unity. But this dwindling of our numbers will take us to the next striking similarity.

2. The 120 in the upper room were under their own lockdown, and they risked it all by going public.  Jesus had been given a mock trial and then executed by the government. Now His followers were fair game for bloodthirsty mobs and corrupt leaders, energized by demons.

Note: Jesus “appeared to more than five hundred brothers and sisters at one time.” But by the day of Pentecost, only a remnant of 120 were still praying and waiting in Jerusalem for power from on high.

Some broke off from seeking the Holy Spirit because of fatigue and others because of fear. But those who endured fatigue and soldiered on, were rewarded with inexpressive glory on that Day of Days.

That is another similarity because not all churches are going to open their doors May 31st. Some for honest reasons that we dare not judge, and some out of unbelief and fear. A number of churches will be opening their doors for the wrong reason—because they want to strike with the fist at politicians, or they simply miss the tithes. However, these things will not stop the Holy Spirit.

Here’s a glorious fact to take away from that first outpouring on the Day of Pentecost: Less than one third of their number were praying. Less than one third obeyed and waited, but that was enough to receive the great promise.

There are many lukewarm Christians who have been paralyzed by the lies of the corrupt media. There are misguided preachers who don’t want to lose the approval of secular society. But the good news is that they can’t stop an outpouring of the Holy Spirit from falling on Pentecost Sunday.

3. They had to wait for the day to fully come, because of what the feast of Pentecost meant. Many in the prophetic core are saying we don’t have to wait for May 31st to open. Why should we wait? They are correct, we don’t have to wait, and some churches have not waited.

But, 2,000 years ago, God made the disciples wait. I am sure they were worthy of an outpouring long before it happened. But God had sovereignly chosen a particular day. Pentecost was a perfect day for the Holy Spirit to come. Here’s why: Pentecost was also known as the feast of First-Fruits. Farmers in Israel would diligently watch their fields and, as soon as they saw fruit beginning to ripen, they would tie a reed around the first-fruit, in order to distinguish it.  Then at Pentecost, they gathered those first-fruits and presented them to the Lord in the Temple.

Jesus was the first-fruit. He predicted His death and the harvest that would follow:

“But Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified. Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain” (John 12:23,24).

Within days of making that statement, our Lord would be crucified and die on the Cross.  Fifty days later, the birth of the Church would be the first-fruits of Jesus’ ministry!  Jesus was the grain that “fell into the ground and died” and in doing so, seven weeks later, He did produce much grain.  In Jerusalem, the priests and rabbis, and all Jerusalem, saw the first-fruit offering which Our Lord presented in the Temple.  That offering was the Church, empowered by the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues, healing the sick, and casting out demons.  That first-fruit offering was over 3,000 souls! (Acts 2:41)

Sure. We could open churches earlier, but there’s something about that particular day. And there is a growing expectation among many Christian men and women who have prayed that this coming Sunday, May 31st—despite all the darkness and evil—could yet be the spark that leads to a great harvest!

5 THINGS YOU MUST DO DURING THE SHUTDOWN

 You can’t dwell on the frightening images you will see on cable news. You can’t cave in to the hysteria.  There is something extremely important you must take care of.

After you have taken every precaution necessary for remaining safe—after you have settled it in your soul to remain strong in the Lord, wholly trusting in Him, it will be time for you to fight back.

Everything in me tells me these are the most important days you will know in our lifetime. Waste them, and it will be the greatest regret of your life.

Turn your days at home into the most important breakthrough ever. Turn feelings of helplessness into fuel for an amazing outcome. These are days to let God do a shocking new work inside you.

It all begins with the story of Paul being arrested and put in prison. Satan put Paul in prison, intending to inflict massive damage on Christianity. He thought Paul could no longer win souls, and he could not teach the fledgling churches that desperately needed his Apostleship. In fact, he couldn’t do anything…except for one thing.

He began writing. And writing would be the most devastating thing Paul would ever do to Satan’s kingdom. If Paul hadn’t been confined, he might never have had the time to write.  How could he possibly imagine his writings would impact billions?  Paul ended up writing 60% of the New Testament. Selah.

Jailing Paul was the stupidest mistake Satan ever made, besides crucifying Christ. Now let me show you how to make this confinement in your home, his next major mistake.

1. Model faith to your children. Settle it in your soul that God will pay your bills, protect your job and restore what you have lost. Don’t speak fear and doubt in your home! The greatest lesson you will ever model for your children—and the greatest gift you will ever leave to them—is to confess that everything that has been lost will be restored. Because when this is over and God comes through—as you know He will—they will remember and apply these lessons in their lives, whenever they are threatened. The greatest thing your children can watch you do is trust in God.

2. Read the Bible. Dump all the questionable prophetic words and conspiracy theories. Some in the prophetic camp are losing credibility because they foolishly predicted this plague would leave suddenly. Some even set a date—one that will likely prove them wrong.  In the Old Testament such “prophets” would have been stoned. It is this lack of consequence in the prophetic camp that has wreaked havoc and left many unprepared for the storm that is upon us.

The same applies to conspiracies. How much clearer can the Bible be? Isaiah 8:12-13, “Do not say, ‘A conspiracy,’ concerning all that this people call a conspiracy, neither be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled. The Lord of Armies, Him you shall hallow; let Him be your fear, and let Him be your dread.”

It’s all over the internet, and religious broadcasting: ‘There is a worldwide secret society! It’s the devil and his vessels! Nancy Pelosi cooked up coronavirus in a Chinese laboratory!’

Stop needing a “word from God” from people. Stop digging into controversy. In 2 Timothy 2:23 Paul warned, “Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels.”

Instead, read the Bible! Now that you have a lot of time, get the Word of God in you. That is the most powerful protection, and the best way to understand how to weather this storm.

3. Make a list of goals for this down-time, and work hard to meet those goals. Already, you see how many things have stolen your time.  You see how many things that previously cluttered your life, seem unimportant now. Because you are a child of God, nothing of yours that is vital will be stolen. Your job and your business will be brought back to life. Therefore, choose to see this as a kind of paid vacation. Paid by God.

It is a time to make overdue changes, and big and bold plans for the future. To do that, you must get to work. That means no binge-watching Netflix! It means you seek the heart of God and ask Him to show you the goals He wants you to accomplish. Write those goals out, and make the righteous choices that give those goals the very best chance of coming to pass.

Paul wrote much of the New Testament while he was in forced confinement. Great projects will be born—projects that may swallow up the wrong ones you had before.

Lastly make the most important goal list of all: the things you are never are never going back to.

4.Turn prayer into a habit. Inspiration will lead you to pray, but you must decide to form the habit that will keep you praying. The chilling fact is that if you do not pray during this pandemic, you will never pray at all. Let God deliver you from the greatest hindrances to prayer that I know of: impulse prayer and feeling-based prayer.

Right now, forget about how long you pray. Focus on praying each and every day. Behaviorists have shown that it takes doing something 35 times in a row, before it becomes a habit. If you create that habit, and deepen that habit, you will own life’s greatest skill.  James 5:16, “Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

5. Focus on personal repentance, not national repentance. You do it! Don’t wait for others, or even think about other people’s repentance. People have been babbling about national repentance as if it was something other people need to do. We don’t see national repentance happening yet, so don’t wait for it to happen. Repent on your own!

We do not even see widespread repentance among preachers. Have you heard many preachers on social media admit they’ve been wrong?  We are flooded with messages from preachers. But have you heard one major pastor or preacher repent or promise that they will run church differently than they did before? Do you see any preacher who isn’t just chomping at the bit to restart the same old thing? I promise you, unless deep repentance takes place, you will be shocked at how unchanged the American church will be, after all of this. Think about this: How much really changed after 9/11?

Remember, God is judging America as much because of the world, as because of the church.  The carnal church has left us open to this disaster. And yet, without repentance, we have zero reason to believe it won’t go back to exactly the way it was before. In other words, they will have learned nothing from the pandemic. They just don’t get it.

We pray that God will not force the issue of repentance by extending and deepening our national crisis, until America implodes completely. But you have to wonder how they can all say they want this to be over, and yet they still will not repent.

But, we must not set our hope on that. Our hope is founded on the knowledge that we must repent before God—and that is personal repentance. That will lead to the real miracle of mercy. You see, you can stand as a priest between the sins of America, the sins of the church, and God. That is true intercession. There is a righteous core of believers who can turn this plague away. (read Numbers chapter 16)

Remember, God said He would spare Sodom and Gomorrah if there were just 10 righteous people. We are not going to rebuke this away; we are going to repent it away. You have the power to stand between God and this virus.

We must give God what He is seeking. We can’t worry about how many others are interceding, even if there are only a few. The promises of the Lord are never vague! Neither are the conditions to His promises.

2 Chronicles 7:14, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

THIS IS AN HOUR FOR BOLDNESS, NOT FEAR AND TIMIDITY.

The shutdown can easily turn into an easy way to weaken and even close down churches. It is hard to convince many Christians that they are rapidly losing their First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and freedom of religion.  They either don’t believe it is happening, or they chalk it up to ‘fake news’ or ‘politics.’  But the erosion of liberty is not only real—it is the greatest threat American Christians have ever faced.

If I listed everything the church was allowed to say ten years ago that she can’t say today, you would be horrified.  Without a miracle, your children and grandchildren will have to survive in a world that will totally ban their faith—and what is even scarier: they will have to face it without you.

The doctrines of our faith that offend are: the Cross, the Blood of Jesus, the reality of Hell, sexual purity, and marriage.  Preachers who feel the heat from government censorship are already deleting these doctrines from their sermons.  They’ll tell you it’s to reach a bigger audience—but, trust me, it’s the heat.

What can we do to stop the church from being driven underground?   No one who is truly a man or woman of God can seriously entertain the idea that we should stop preaching these truths.  That is not even an option.  What then can we do to reverse this pernicious loss of liberty?

An even better question is: What does God do when a nation tries to silence His church?  The answer came to me suddenly.   Hear me out, it is not what you think.  It is way beyond petitions, or elections.  The revelation I am about to relate to you, struck me with paralyzing clarity. I am amazed I never saw it before.

However, nothing I am about to say will help you, not one point I am making will have its intended impact, unless you have a heart for it.  If you are still in denial about what is happening, I can’t help you—this message can’t help you.  If you think I am dispensing alarmist extremism, then you are just another part of the threat.

But, if you want to hear God’s heart on this crisis—if you hunger for more than half-answers, then you have come to the right place.  You can ask the Holy Spirit the most important question you could ever ask: “What do You do when a nation tries to silence Your church?”

Here it comes:

When the leaders of Jerusalem arrested Peter, they didn’t know what to charge him with or how to punish him.  They knew they had to silence the church.  There was no doubt about their intention.  They were prepared to do anything to stop the Gospel—so what was stopping them?  Answer that, and you will know what the exact marching orders are, that the church needs today.

What was hindering the council members was the glaring presence of the man who came with Peter and John.  This was the crippled beggar who used to sit at the Gate Beautiful.  A spectacular miracle had occurred!  He had occupied the most visible and lucrative begging station in Jerusalem.  Everyone knew him.  Word of his miraculous healing filled Jerusalem, and a mad chorus of praise was rising over the Eternal City.

Their deep consternation is vividly described in these verses: Acts 4:14 “And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. 15 But when they had commanded (Peter and John) to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, 16 saying, “What shall we do to these men? For, indeed, that a notable miracle has been done through them is evident to all who dwell in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it.””

Their profound dilemma was not lost on Peter.  The Holy Spirit had revealed to him the divine solution to government censorship.  Peter had clearly settled on a course of action—the very action we need to take today. It is the action we take in our tent. He left with a battle plan. He was armed with critical information.

He gathered the people of God, and ordered them to pray.  He was about to pray a prayer that is the precise model for our crisis. He faced the same threat we face.  Remember that word: “threat.”

You will recall I told you that nothing good can come to you from my message, unless you see how urgent the hour has become?  Peter began his prayer by calling the situation ‘a threat.’  We must do this, also.

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

Peter is showing us that boldness is essential.  Only boldness will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Not only this, he is forever settling the question of preaching.  Preaching must not leave anything out.  It is by sharing the whole counsel of God, that the church is protected, and able to continue her work.

Next, Peter is admitting that the vehicle for that boldness is signs and wonders.  God must stretch His hand over an angry culture, perform supernatural healings, and overrule the agenda of man.  Such is the case today.  Look at how God answered:

Acts 4:31 “And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.”

Not only were they filled with the Holy Spirit and boldness, but God answered their prayer for miracles.  In the next chapter, the very shadow of Peter was healing the masses. (Acts 5:15-16)

 

Ignore those who aren’t willing.  Set the time and place to go to homes, houses of worship, schools, offices—anywhere where true prayer can be raised up to God.  Prove this promise and see: the Spirit will fall; you will receive a tongue of fire, and miracles will come.  I am not talking about self-absorbed emotional light touches.  I am talking about undeniable, medically verified, city-shaking divine healings.

And you will see that now, as in that day, no law, no argument, and no politician will be able to silence the church!

NINE LITTLE WORDS

We cannot deny our lives have been disrupted to an extreme that Americans have not experienced since the Second World War.

Suddenly, we have been plunged into a world that we had previously only seen in disaster movies. All the professional sports that most Americans worship are gone. California’s children will stay home probably until the fall. Las Vegas has been shut down.  Sin City’s credo was, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” but now it’s, “Nothing is happening here.”

We have no idea what will ultimately happen to our economy. We are huddled in our homes trying to figure out the best way to ride this out—hoping the doomsday voices are wrong.

What bothers me the most is the behavior of so-called Christians on social media. I have never seen so much self-promotion. Videos infest the internet with “words from God.” Some say this will turn out to be nothing. Others tell us it is the end. They gargle with gunpowder and then shoot their mouths off. They dispense silliness in the name of God. All they really crave is attention. You should document their predictions and hold them accountable for false prophecy when this is all over.

There is only one reason I am writing this and there is only one group I am writing it to. I am writing this to you because God has done an epic miracle in my soul, and this is a message for the remnant of God who have been hidden until this very moment. They are in this crisis by design. They are in for an amazing surprise.

This is not for the carnal Christian. If that’s you, you still need one more lap around reality before you will have a heart for the Glory that God will reveal in His core believers. So here goes…a message to God’s hidden people who are groping for answers for what to do during this quarantine and pandemic.

Like you, I had to deal with the sudden and shocking change brought about by the coronavirus quarantine. There are many who are going through things far worse than I am. But what I went through was still pretty bad.

A week ago, I felt as if I had lost everything. The coronavirus scare closed down our tent crusades. For me and for our team it is a devastating loss. I am not exaggerating: I truly collapsed before God from sheer sorrow.

Out of it, God led me to nine words that David spoke. He said nine words that tell the prophetic core exactly what to do in this crisis. I present to you what every pastor, leader, business person, parent, and young person who is under a heavy call of God needs to do right now.

You will find the answer in the 30th chapter of 1 Samuel. When David lost everything and his men were ready to stone him, he did something remarkable. The Bible says, “He encouraged himself in the Lord.” That is amazing enough, but it’s what he did next that’s even more amazing.

To get anything out of these words, you must first grasp the utter despair that David felt before he spoke them. Remember, David was a man who had been anointed and over whom prophecy had been spoken that he would be King, but in an instant, he became as poor as a slave.

Here’s the picture: 1 Samuel 30:3 “So David and his men came to the city, and there it was, burned with fire; and their wives, their sons, and their daughters had been taken captive. Then David and the people who were with him lifted up their voices and wept, until they had no more power to weep.” Filled with despair, David’s own men were about to kill him.

The nine words I am going to show you were the greatest psalm David ever spoke. In this ‘accidental psalm,’ David glorified God like he had never glorified God before.

Here are the nine words: “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?”

Don’t let their simplicity fool you! David glorified God in what he did not say, as much as in what he did say. Even though he felt rage and grief he did not insult God’s character. He did not rail against his circumstances. David did not sin with his mouth. There was no, “Why did you let this happen to me?” Or, “How can I trust you when you can’t even protect my family?”

David was practicing what he preached in Psalm 19:9, “The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.”

From David’s example, I knew better than to waste valuable time rehearsing the disastrous effects of the coronavirus on our ministry. I needed something else. And so do you.

David did not torture himself by dwelling on why it had gotten so bad. He knew the goodness, mercy and wisdom of God. He didn’t even ask for comfort. Think of that!

No, he knew he needed to ask for something else.  Can you guess what that is? He needed direction. DIRECTION! And that, my friend, is what you need most.

Take Mario Murillo Ministries for an example. We are in deep prayer about what to do next. My concern is not the tent crusades. When the lock down is lifted we will be ready. We will move with all the force of the pent up zeal and fire in our bones!

No, my real concern is what God would have us do in the meantime. Somehow, I believe God is about to reveal to us an amazing method and an idea that will launch us to harvest souls in a way we never imagined.

Yes, in the natural, this is a terrifying situation. Cities have shut down. Businesses are being destroyed, and people are dying.  Still, nothing could be worse than wringing our hands and wallowing in vain imaginations about why this happened, and what may happen next.

The Holy Spirit is waiting to give us marching orders. He wants to give us the wisdom necessary to not only stay safe, but to exploit this crisis for the Glory of God.

God answered David and gave him a promise: “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all” (1 Samuel 30:8).

That was all David needed to launch out and go attack the enemy. He didn’t know how it would happen but he did not let his men slow him down. He ordered them to mount up and ride! When his men saw David on his horse, it reminded them of all the past victories that came from following David into battle.

David sat high and looked at them with a look that spoke volumes, it said, in essence, “Do you want to kill me or do you want to get your wives and kids back?” They followed David, rode after the enemy, miraculously found them, and got back everything and more besides.

You need to talk to your soul and ask yourself, “Do you want to sit here paralyzed by fear or do you want to get up and follow God into total restoration of everything the devil has stolen?”

As far as Mario Murillo Ministries is concerned we will win souls! No matter what. I solemnly promise you that the enemy will pay. This crisis will not lessen our soul winning—in the end it will increase it!

This is what Paul said in Philippians 1:12-14, “I want to report to you, friends, that my imprisonment here has had the opposite of its intended effect. Instead of being squelched, the Message has actually prospered.”

We all need to follow David’s example to get two things: direction and a promise. You will learn how to suppress fear and confusion. You will have no doubt that God is with you and your loved ones, to protect and provide.

You will realize that you have been secretly undergoing preparation for this very moment. Expect to hear from Jesus! Expect to know exactly what to do and how to do it.

This virus is going to pass. But the damage we will live with if we give in to fear and hesitation will not go away. You will look back on this for the rest of your life and thank God you did not give in to fear or disobey the deep work of the Holy Spirit

All it took in David’s case was nine simple words, and an impossible situation was turned into an epic victory: and the body of Christ in America is also going to experience another epic victory! Hallelujah!

PETER ON THE DAY JESUS DIED

First, he screamed and he kept screaming until he could scream no more. Then he fell off a cliff into the abyss of broken souls. He crashed with a force that could have moved the earth. Around him lay fragments—the new and hideous replacements of his former self. Shame replaced love. Cowardice replaced faith. Hope was driven out to make room for the mocking predator. Worst of all was the deep despair he felt as he saw his destiny plunge into a black hole of regret.

This all happened the day after Jesus died.

To survive, Peter virtually became a robot. He reverted to fishing. It’s what he was programmed to do. It’s what he knew best. He went through the motions to avoid every feeling, suppressing every emotion.

The difference between Peter and Judas Iscariot is razor thin. The fever of despair and regret raged in Peter every bit as hot as it had in Judas. It drove Judas to suicide. Why not Peter? Why didn’t he do what the other traitor did? It was because Jesus had prayed for him.

Satan told Peter a lie. Peter not only believed that lie, he now embodied it. And, it is the same lie that Satan is telling America right now—the lie that all the important things are gone forever.

Whenever those who hate God and America try to enforce a change, they call it ‘THE NEW NORMAL.’ They sold us on ‘THE NEW NORMAL’ of abortion, same sex marriage, and godless education. Their latest excuse for seizing control is the coronavirus. Something to remember: ‘the new normal’ is always nothing other than the old abnormal.

Peter was tortured by memories. Though he tried to fight it with all his might, it was impossible not to relive those days. Two mistakes haunted him the most. Thinking he could save Jesus, he had taken a sword and had swung it at the head of the high priest’s servant, Malchus, who, fortunately had moved just in time, losing only an ear. But his greatest horror was his discovery that he was a coward, and that he had denied Jesus three times. The rooster was still crowing in his spirit.

The hardest thing for Peter to forget was the day he met Jesus. Peter had been minding his own business when Jesus interrupted his entire life.  After fishing all night, Peter had caught nothing.   His hands were red and sore from handling the heavy nets.  Every muscle ached. He had nothing to show for a brutal night out on the water.

Then the strange Teacher said, “Let your nets down again for a catch.”  Peter half-heartedly did as he was asked, and the catch was so enormous that it terrified him.  He begged Jesus to keep His distance, “I am a sinful man!” Peter cried.

That’s when he heard the words about his destiny.  “Follow Me and I will make you a fisher of men.”

There is no doubt that Peter was convinced that now, after his failure and denial, it was too late. That fact must be clearly understood or you will not get the impact of the lesson I am about to relate.

It’s dawn on Resurrection Sunday.  Peter couldn’t know that at that very moment, an angel was talking about him.  Mark 16:7, “But go, tell His disciples—and Peter—that (Jesus) is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He told to you.”  The angel added the words “and Peter.”  Why?  Because God knew Peter would have disqualified himself if the invitation was “for disciples only.”

Peter grabbed the messenger who related this to him and demanded: “Are you certain the angel said my name?!” “Yes, the words were, “Tell the disciples, and Peter.”” At that moment, Peter came back from the dead. He knew he was not rejected. He knew the unmatched glory of a true second chance.

Satan had worked hard to prevent Peter’s apostleship, because he knew this man would shake the gates of hell.  The first shaking came on the Day of Pentecost. The wind and fire of the Holy Spirit’s baptism transformed Peter

The coward, who had denied his Lord three times, was lovingly restored by the resurrected Jesus. He appeared to Peter, giving him three new chances to affirm his love. Jesus even provided a charcoal fire similar to the one near which Peter had experienced failure. Peter was completely transformed. He was now a lion carrying a devastating witness. He roared, “This is that which was spoken by the Prophet Joel!”

In the days after Jesus died, evil exerted a crushing blow on the entire city. All the Christians hid in their homes behind locked doors, and it’s like that today. Satan wishes to crush our hopes and dreams. Evil men would sell us the lie that we must adapt to a grim, cold, and dark lesser vision of America, the church, and our futures.

Those who are marked by God are unstoppable. When the doors reopen for America, God will fully restore our destiny.

But there is one miracle that remains to be explored. Cutting off Malchus’ ear haunted Peter. But there was more to it than just healing an ear. Because, my friend, that night Jesus healed more than an ear—knowing the future, Jesus knew Peter must not be sitting on death row on the day of Pentecost. Jesus prayed “permit even this” and reattached the ear, in order to protect Peter’s destiny.

Right now, He is also guarding yours. This pandemic, cannot stop God’s destiny for your life.
