Satan is flooding the world with evil.  Many believers are asleep—but not everyone. Some have their eyes wide open.

A lot of churchgoers yearn for soothing sermons. Meanwhile, a growing company seeks to understand authority, brokenness, and Resurrection Life. Who are these ‘others’ who have their eyes wide open?

They are too loud for most. They pray longer and deeper than what is ‘acceptable’ in respectable circles. They do their duty and suffer through meaningless concerts, seminars, and “Christian events.” But, their hearts are not in it.

Many Christians don’t want to talk about spiritual warfare because they hate confrontation.  These ‘others’ know we are at war with principalities and powers of evil.  These ‘abnormals’ are secret weapons—set apart for that perfect moment when God will unleash them on an unsuspecting world.

Professional church builders fear them because they scare away the ‘right people.’ Carnal believers despise them because they are a constant reminder of compromise.

In order to salve their conscience, those who oppose this remnant call them ‘abnormal.’  But they are not abnormal. They are very normal.  We have been subnormal for so long that normal looks abnormal.

Maybe you are one of those Jesus-followers who loves just a little too much—who wants more than everyone thinks is ‘right.’  Maybe they roll their eyes when you talk about things—awesome things you believe God can still do in this dark and evil time. Remember: to some Christians, you are a ‘fanatic.’ But, to them, the definition of a fanatic is anyone who loves Jesus more than they do…

They tell you your agitation is abnormal. They tell you to relax, but that just stokes your inner fire. They tell you, “God is in control and you don’t have to worry.” But you remember the Word of God, and it tells you to do something.  You know that God combs the earth for willing vessels who will throw off the glad rags of religion, take up the mighty weapons of God, and thrust the sword of the Spirit into the heart of the powers of darkness.

Well my ‘normal’ friend, it is time for you know what God is about to do.  It’s time for me to explain you, to you.

What will explain you, and then launch you, is this simple fact: GOD WILL NOT GIVE UP AMERICA WITHOUT A FIGHT.  He will strike with a force and fury that will leave the God-haters stunned and limp.

Satan has grossly underestimated what the Lord is willing to do to spare our nation.  You see that same overconfidence in those who follow the devil.

The concussion will also be felt within the church. Those preachers who traded their divine calling for the rewards of this world—those who flattered and dulled the saints—those who turned God’s army into a harmless social club—will be exposed.  Those who killed the natural urgency of the Body of Christ will be judged in this life, and not just in eternity.

Here’s what wrong with you, my ‘normal’ friend. You have seen the lie. You see that what lies beneath so much of today’s preaching is defeat. What they consider to be an uplifting message is in fact the white flag of surrender. It is summed up in this simple fact: THEY DO NOT BELIEVE AMERICA CAN BE SAVED.

They have resigned themselves to a new goal—a false goal—because they have lost faith in God’s goals.

Satan has sold the church fool’s gold.  Instead of taking up weapons mighty to the tearing down of strongholds, we pursue money, cheap grace, and celebrity, because of defeat and unbelief.

Faith has grown flabby.  They don’t know about the power of our weapons.  They don’t know the limitless extent of our authority.  And, it is because we don’t know our marching orders.  We don’t know what to say to this generation.

So now the stage is set for the ‘normal’ people to be used in extraordinary ways.

They will begin by challenging and defeating the lies of false government and political corruption. Peter recognized when government crossed the line.

Acts 4: 19But Peter and John replied, “Which is right in God’s eyes: to listen to you, or to Him? You be the judges! 20 As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”

Peter also understood what to do when a government tries to ban the Gospel:

Acts 5: 28: (the Jewish high council were) saying, “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name? And behold, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man’s blood on us!” 29 But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.”

The true warrior understands what is going on. They know the Left is coming after our freedom.  They know how they will force feed our children the Antichrist agenda.

What they don’t know is that you are waking up to your purpose and destiny.  God has called you out of the rank and file, the ‘sleepy heads’ who wander in and out of church. You are being groomed for special power in this hour.

The mighty God is creating people to turn the tide of wickedness.  He doesn’t care about your age or your education.  He searches for someone who is travailing over the evil, and who will die without power and purpose.  They want to be in the fight—and they want to be in the thick of it.

Isaiah 6: 8: “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I!  Send me.””

You are not abnormal…you are simply becoming normal! What you were created to be!  The Holy Spirit is energizing you to take a giant leap out of dead church life.  You are about to make a courageous declaration of war on the godless ideologies that are destroying our nation.

You and I will see a harvest of lost souls. We will carry the Gospel to those most victimized by America’s leftist plunge.

You are being overtaken by an irrevocable need to be in the middle of God’s greatest act in history. This is what the normal Christian life is supposed to be. Welcome to the war!

Vessels of Fire and Glory

Vessels of Fire and Glory is Mario’s newest book. It reached number one on Amazon among all Spirit-filled books. John Kilpatrick who led the Pensacola Revival said this after he read Vessels of Fire and Glory: “As I read the manuscript for Mario Murillo’s new book, Vessels of Fire and Glory, I said to myself, “Finally!” Mario has measured the church and the nation in this season and did not hold anything back. His honesty is like the sun rising inside a dark cave. This release is a paradox—it is sobering and refreshing; it is symptoms and the cure. I believe this revivalist has penned a treatise that should be in the hands of all who lead the work of God.”


Here is a book about the end times with a totally different approach. It does not focus on how the world will end but on how to live as the curtain comes down on humanity. Powerful, practical, and encouraging.

Critical Mass

    “So we must arise and join Jesus outside the religious “walls” and bear His disgrace, carry His insults, endure the abuse He suffered”. Anyone who follows Jesus all the way will be rejected and misunderstood. But making a difference in this world is worth going through the suffering for His great Name’s sake. Heb. 13:13

    • ohsue

      Yes and amen!

    Amen to this message. I am a mighty warrior and I am being prepared for battle. I can’t stand what has been happening in the church today. I want to shake people and say wake up. I feel like a race horse waiting at the gate ready to be released. God bless you all.

    • Diana Vaughan

      I feel just like that!!!(LOVE the word picture of a racehorse)
      THANK YOU JESUS for this DEVINE MESSAGE. Hopefully it is an alarm clock to wake up all your sleepy spiritual kidos!!!!!!!
      YES & AMEN

    Hebrews 13:6 (KJV) So that we may boldly say, The Lord [is] my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

    Helper> succorer – someone who gives help in times of need or distress or difficulty, a recoverer, rescuer.


    1 Corinthians 15:34 (KJV)

    Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak [this] to your shame.

    1- Awake “TO” Righteousness.

    2- From “Un-Righteousness.

    3- To “Faith” which is without “Sin” To Revelation Faith.

    4- Because “Of” His Knowledge “Word” in this “NEW BREED” living Body.

    My Banner Is Clear

    The inspiring commitment of a young African pastor from Zimbabwe

    I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have Holy Spirit power, my die has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I’m a disciple of Jesus. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still.

    My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I’m finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, worldly talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals.

    I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions, praise, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, am uplifted by prayer, and labor by power.

    My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my Guide is reliable, and my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of ordinary. I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, preached up for the cause of Christ.

    I am a disciple of Jesus. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till all know, and work till He stops me. And when He comes for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me-my banner will be clear.


    That’s my desire,

      Very inspiring extrapolation of the undiluted, uncompromising saint, wearing, carrying and waving, The Banner of Christ The King!!!!
      The Lord “is” my Banner!

  4. Ammi

    Fasting and prayer is going on for all the churches that are choosing to open FOR THE RIGHT REASON on Pentecost. But one thing I truly hope they realize, is that the Sabbath, the 7th day of the week, was not done away with. Nor His other feasts. For this I pray. I pray people know that the two sticks are destined to become one in Messiah.

    • Carolina

      Ammi, this is SO important for you to understand:

      The Lord fulfilled every hebraic feast, special day, holiday and Sabboth along with all the ancient prophets words through His birth, life, sacrifice, death, burial and resurrection.
      As He told the leadership of the Jews, “you search the scriptures thinking they have life in them, but they all speak of Me,” Jesus told His disciples, “I Am Lord of the Sabboth.”

      Jesus Christ is:
      The final Pesach, The Passover blood of God who takes away the death & sins of this world.

      Jesus Christ is:
      The Feast of Weeks, He guided His disciples as they picked the wheat heads off the grains to eat while the Jewish leadership shammed Him and His men for so doing on a Sabboth. Christ is The Pentecost Who delivered Holy Spirit on tongues of fire above the heads of 120 in the upper room.

      Jesus Christ is:
      Rosh HaShanna, The HEAD of every year in perpetuity, The HEAD of the church, THE never ending Trumpet, announcing to all the world that salvation has finally arrived.

      Jesus Christ is:
      Yom Kippur – the finished and final day of substitutionary atonement, the sacrificial propitiation for our sins, the ultimate satisfaction of God Almighty displayed on the holy alter.

      Jesus Christ is:
      Succoth – the sukkah, the tabernacle shelter of His Beloved, The reason for the great ha-Hag Asif The feast of Ingathering, is what He has done gathering in all those to His bosom who shall be saved. Christ is the very Lulav waved, the very shew bread shown & waved, the very palm fronds laid over the temporary booths, these same palm leaves were also laid before Jesus feet as The King of The Jews Yeshua entered Jerusalem on a donkey that day.

      All these festivals serv(ed) to remind us of how The Messiah would come and how we are but sojourners, pilgrims, in need of a Savior in a strange and foreign world.

      This is what Apostle Paul admonished the Galatians about (Galatians 4:8-12)
      “But now, since you know God, or rather have become known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and bankrupt elemental forces? Do you want to be enslaved to them all over again? As you observe [special] days, months, seasons, and years. I am fearful for you, that perhaps my labor for you has been wasted.”

      Everyday is a day of rest (Sabboth) and peace (Shalom) in King Yeshua.

        Matthew 11:28-30 is the REST of the story. The Weak And The Strong: Romans 14

    Brother Murillo,

    I appreciate your blogs and all you are sharing to shake the body of Christ to awake, repent and return to their first love. Your blogs challenge, infuriate me by what is going on, draw me closer to the Father and my desire to stand and fight. I wanted to let you know that I find it odd that for some reason I can’t access your website Hmm?

    “Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature.”

    Benjamin Franklin, Maxims and Morals from Dr. Franklin, 1807

    Despite the leftists best efforts to steal our freedom and crush our Spirit, the People of whom many are Believers/Children of God are awakening and will fight for our Freedom which is a gift from God. I believe God is saving America but we the People need to stand against the tyranny and hypocrisy of the Left. Knowing that God is with us, I wonder who can be against us? I pray for God to grant us heightened awareness of these injustices and ignite our appetite for liberty.

    “In every human breast, God has implanted a principle, which we call love of freedom; it is impatient of oppression and pants for deliverance.” – Phyllis Wheatley, The Boston Post-Boy, 1774

    The People had forgotten the very essence of America and all upon which she is founded until the lock down. The left has highly underestimated the American Spirit founded in God’s gift to us – FREEDOM. They have woken the sleeping giant that is the American People united against tyranny.

    “It does not take a majority to prevail…but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brush fires of freedom in the minds of men.” Samuel Adams

    The People protesting loss of freedom all over the nation has set a brush fire of freedom which thanks be to God is igniting the churches to fight and speak out! Opening in defiance of orders; filing suits against government for discrimination against churches; and most of all inspiring Believers to stand up and fight. In MI a small church was burned and evil graffiti left behind – evil will not stop attacking and will try to crush us. An awakened church brings all the power of God and all attacks will not stop what God has planned to save America! We must stay vigilant and protect our liberty. We must pray for God’s protection as we fight for what is rightfully ours.

    Love your blogs! I try to “spread the fire” as much as possible on social media and take a lot of heat for it but I will not back down! I am praying God to give me direction on how I can help fight this war!!

    Thank you for being so inspiring!

    Such a true word, for sure. It is the compromising Christians, or so-called, “Christians”, who are just as cynical, rude, critical, and “nervous” about hearing the true Gospel from those who are committed. I experienced this when I took part in a business chat board years ago when I had my business. The lukewarm compromised Christians were every bit as critical and rude to the few truly committed Christians on the board, as the blatant atheists were. They caused much confusion and did much damage to the Cause of Christ. Those of us who stood for the pure Word and Truth, had to do double time defending and standing for the Gospel..disputing the corrupt ideas of the lukewarm, and showing the atheist types how completely wrong they were while trying to convey the love of Christ to them. They, of course, preferred the “compromised Christians”, calling them “loving and tolerant” and calling us, “mean and hateful”, because we stuck to Scripture and could not condone the things they wanted us to. It was an extremely enlightening experience, like that chat board was a microcosm of the world. At one point, the atheists broke away and started their own “board”, excluding us committed Christians. The compromisers, of course, were invited. About a week later, even some of the atheists came back to the regular board, saying the “private board” had descended into nothing but an excuse to use as much profanity ad they could possibly type out. I remember thinking, “And there you have it…what the world will be like when God takes His children home and there is no longer the influence of His people on this earth…mankind will go insane with their evil..we’ve just seen a sample..

    Yea, Verily
    In a time of prayer, I was prayed out, soaking in a tangible presence of the Lord,
    After a while I heard Him laughing. Then I started laughing. I laughed so hard my sides began hurting. Bending over, holding my stomach, I had a vision of Jesus sitting on His Throne, bent over, looking down, but He wasn’t laughing. He has a look of disdain on His Face and I heard Him say adamantly, “you don’t think you are going to stop Me from doing what I have predestined to do, do you?
    I thought, someone is in trouble and that some one are authorities and others who set themselves against the Lord and against His anointed.
    His adversaries shall be broken into pieces.
