 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 siding with truth—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 in a new way.

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 time of waiting 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 illegal new attempt to 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 negative contradictory rhetoric confused preachers are speaking.  Preachers are losing credibility because they foolishly predicted things and then recanted their predictions  In the Old Testament such “waffling prophets” would have been stoned. It is this lack of discipline in some prophetic camps that has wreaked havoc and left many unprepared for the storm that is upon us.

The same applies to conspiracies and accusations against Trump. 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.”

I am a strong advocate for the fact that this election has been stolen. However, if I let myself begin to fight only in the natural, and I am thrown by the latest developments it can cripple faith.

Stop needing a “word from God” from people. Take a breather from digging for emotional resolution. This is a long war that won’t end quickly.  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 waiting period, 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. 

This intentional goal setting insults the devil’s threats against you.

Paul wrote much of the New Testament while he was in forced confinement. This waiting period can feel like jail!  But 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 still 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 many who are willing to stand with Trump at this hour? Do you see many preachers who aren’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 and the election. 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.

We are at the point where only a miracle from God will expose the deep corruption that has taken over the Democrats and their cohorts. Our helplessness is an opportunity to look to God in faith. 

My prayer in this hijacked election is from 2 Chronicles 20:12 “O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.”

Total trust 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 a message to those who support Mario Murillo’s message to America.

That is why we must make this stunning book offer to you. Now in its fourth printing, Vessels of Fire and Glory keeps reaching the top of its category on Amazon.  Critical Mass has now sold over 150,000 copies and remains an international classic on awakening. Both books are still in high demand. So why are we making this amazing offer to you? California is the reason why.

We need to act fast in California for two big reasons. First, Fresno was a shocking breakthrough. Fresno is a sign that tens of thousands of Californians hunger for the Gospel. Second, the battle for America will be won or lost in California.

You get both books for just $20. Not only that—Mario will autograph your copy of Vessels of Fire and Glory. On top of that…you get free shipping.

This is a double win for you. You get these choice books at an excellent price and the proceeds go to win lost souls in California.

And there is still more. If you order 10 or more sets of the Dynamic Duo, your cost is $18 a set. Click on link below to order now!

    Wow. Thank you. A list of things to do helps so much to clarify what needs to be done when emotions and anxiety run high. I like especially the bit on setting your mind to prayer, the will to do it no matter how you feel, because we can’t run on emotions here. We need a soldier’s discipline. And it is true that the enforced time at home can be the best thing; we have far more opportunity to be available, listening, and acting. God does take care of us; I’ve seen that now more than ever. And, by golly, not a single typo! Heavens.

    • Clark

      Wow… not a single typo! Revival must be at the door when there are no typos! When we truly REPENT, then God will hear from heaven, forgive all our typos and heal our country, and REBUKE the devourer for our sake. Some Believers just stumble over some typos. What is the remedy for that? Get over it and move on. Humor is needed in a time like this.?

      • fromanislandinnewhampshire

        Thanks! I was dyin’ yesterday reading all the mentions of the typos. No one wanted MMM to look bad, but it got hilarious.

        I’m glad the Lord didn’t have any typos when He created the earth.
        Words are powerful – prayer.

    This is the ultimate time for prayer to keep us grounded, I agree. Months before the election, long before I learned of the prophecies, I began to devote the first hour of my day in prayer, which includes reflective readings for Christ followers, a few chapters in the Bible, prayers in my own words, and journaling in prayer. I’ve always called myself a Christian, and I’ve always believed in His Truth, but there have been times when my faith has wafted and waned. In this new hour of prayer, I am finding my relationship with prayer growing deeper, and I look forward to this time every day. I find myself praying through my workday, listening to podcasts of the faithful. In the midst of the election and pandemic crises, I feel a calm knowing and understanding that God is righteous, He is just, and He loves His people.
    I still feel the anger and a little anxiety with the latest news, but I know the reasons behind these feelings are because I cry for those most impacted, and it drives me to focus my prayer.. I pray for the millions of unborn, the innocent lives that have been lost and those who are at risk. I pray for our nation and for President Trump, that justice will prevail, and I pray in full realization that God answers prayer in His own time, for His rightful cause. In my focused prayer I am pulled closer to Him in ways I’d not imagined possible. At 64 years of age, I realize His words have been waiting to be heard, the Bible has become an obsession for me, and I

    • kayeminton

      look forward to my time to dwell on it (sorry, my finger accidentally hit the send button, so I’m continuing my comment here).
      The prophecies are encouraging, and I appreciate the continued encouragement to remain steadfast in my belief. I appreciate the instruction to stay calm, and trust in God to do what He will, and in that I am learning to simply know and trust that all is in His hands.

      • swordandspiritwriter

        Amen, sister. I also believe the prophecies are to be believed and carried in walk by faith not by sight prayer until they become seen. And to speak against a prophecy is to actually speak against the Lord in double mindedness etc. I am staying in agreement with the prophecies about Pres Trump’s second term not matter what it looks like as well as praying for exposure of all fraud, corruption, and for justice, etc. Let’s keep praying. Praise God you’ve drawn so near to the Lord. I have too in these past couple years. Thank You, Lord.

      • praying grandmother

        Yes, many tears lately in prayer…so much at stake, not a time to give in or give up. Just about every day, God has been giving me words, phrases, images that are excitingly confirmed. He is on the movd, Hallelujah! Mario, your posts are a blessing, right on point and encouraging.

  4. Carol

    Thank you Marillo for these encouraging words. Your words for the day always seem to be exactly what I need to be strong and persevere. We have to believe that only God can provide a God sized solution for a God size problem.

  5. John R.

    Thank you Mario.
    It’s a tough love message, but it speaks the truth and encourages us to persevere and trust in God in these difficult times.
    I still believe a great shaking is coming in the days ahead that will turn the outcome of this election on its head.
    In an interview over the weekend, law expert Alan Dershowitz, said the President’s legal challenges have a narrow path to victory and “it’s a very uphill fight; you’d need a perfect storm for it to be achieved but legally, constitutionally, there is a route to that result,”
    Hold on because God is arranging events to create a “perfect storm” for a great miracle that only God can do.

    • kayeminton

      Agreed, and thank you!

  6. Lynn Garwood

    Mario, I’ve been reading your words for a very long time. I circulate them to everyone I know. THIS is the most powerful message of all. Thank you ~

  7. swordandspiritwriter

    Thank you, brother Mario. We need Jesus and His Word and the power of His Spirit ruling our families. Not the wide path stuff of the world that leads to destruction.
    I do believe the Lord is and will continue to expose these shepherds who won’t repent and who are carnal and leading His sheep astray and is raising up others in their place. That the shepherds etc on the wide path of destruction will have their financial wells dried up and will lose their pulpits by the Lord’s hand BUT we must keep praying.
    Also, I believe the Lord cares deeply about every injustice against President Trump on an individual level. That He loves him, hates the dishonest scales against him, and as he prays and gives it to Him, He will right the wrongs and vindicate him. I’ve been in unfair situations where there was no way to fully prove the truth – my word against theirs – and I just told it to the Lord and said, But You Know, Lord. You judge rightly. You know I am telling the truth. You saw every hidden thing. You know my cause is righteous.” And He helped me in miraculous ways and against all odds, and I “won my case” and my “enemies” were defeated. He even caused my enemies to be utterly ashamed. I didn’t. They did themselves in. I just stayed in a place of prayer and forgiveness towards them.
    And He hates the “dishonest scales” against the people of America. Crying out for His mercy:
    Praise to the Lord God Almighty for His mercy endures forever.
    Bless you, brother. Appreciate your fire for the Lord and obedience to say what most in leadership won’t and boldly.


    Blessings to you, Mario!!!
    God, has sharpened your vision…you are right on target when aiming at the social CLIMATE CHANGE, we have been experiencing and need to shed a light on, for others to see!!! GREAT subject matter!!!

  9. kristymctee

    All my Christian life, I have prayed “nice” prayers. Not right now. Jude says “some save with fear, snatching them out of the fire.” The fear of God apparently has the effect on some people of turning them away from sin. What churches are preaching the fear of God anymore? Not many. This dooms a whole segment of the population – those who would be saved by fear – from appreciating who God is. My prayer today is, Lord, bring down holy fear!

    • Clark

      Noah moved with fear and prepared for the coming storm.

    • swordandspiritwriter

      I agree and have also been praying for the fear of the Lord to blanket this nation and fill the rooms of all the people deciding anything to do with the election, fraud, and decisions regarding it. And so true! The fear of God is what many need as you quoted from Jude. In agreement with you, sister – “Yes, Lord, bring down holy fear!” God bless you. The Psalms are filled with UN-nice prayers. God is a just God. Believers can get so grace focused they forget that He is also just. I’ve been praying through Psalms like 37 for such a time as this. Not nice but necessary and a much-needed cry for now.

    I love your prayer of 2 Chron 20:12. Moreover, I love what the 3 prophets said regarding God’s response to that prayer in 2 Chron 12:15, 17. “Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast number, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” “You do not have to fight this battle. Position yourselves, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord.”
    Thank you for your very encouraging words.


    You claim that you did not prophesy that Trump would be re-elected yet I heard you said that God gave you a word of knowledge that he would and He had a surprise. Why have you no spoken the truth and stand by what you heard God tell you?

      I wish I had prophesied it. But no, I never got a direct word. I have always believed, and still believe Trump could be reelected. We are in a war and need him back in the White House.

  15. Roger Culwell

    Amen good word, here is what he gave me this morning Zep 3:6-20 “I have wiped out many nations,
    devastating their fortress walls and towers.
    Their streets are now deserted;
    their cities lie in silent ruin.
    There are no survivors—
    none at all.
    Zep 3:7
    I thought, ‘Surely they will have reverence for me now!
    Surely they will listen to my warnings.
    Then I won’t need to strike again,
    destroying their homes.’
    But no, they get up early
    to continue their evil deeds.
    (cf. Gen 11:1–9; Act 2:1–11 )
    Zep 3:8
    Therefore, be patient,” says the LORD.
    “Soon I will stand and accuse these evil nations.
    For I have decided to gather the kingdoms of the earth
    and pour out my fiercest anger and fury on them.
    All the earth will be devoured
    by the fire of my jealousy.
    Zep 3:9
    “Then I will purify the speech of all people,
    so that everyone can worship the LORD together.
    Zep 3:10
    My scattered people who live beyond the rivers of Ethiopia[fn]
    will come to present their offerings.
    Zep 3:11
    On that day you will no longer need to be ashamed,
    for you will no longer be rebels against me.
    I will remove all proud and arrogant people from among you.
    There will be no more haughtiness on my holy mountain.
    Zep 3:12
    Those who are left will be the lowly and humble,
    for it is they who trust in the name of the LORD.
    Zep 3:13
    The remnant of Israel will do no wrong;
    they will never tell lies or deceive one another.
    They will eat and sleep in safety,
    and no one will make them afraid.”
    Zep 3:14
    Sing, O daughter of Zion;
    shout aloud, O Israel!
    Be glad and rejoice with all your heart,
    O daughter of Jerusalem!
    Zep 3:15
    For the LORD will remove his hand of judgment
    and will disperse the armies of your enemy.
    And the LORD himself, the King of Israel,
    will live among you!
    At last your troubles will be over,
    and you will never again fear disaster.
    Zep 3:16
    On that day the announcement to Jerusalem will be,
    “Cheer up, Zion! Don’t be afraid!
    Zep 3:17
    For the LORD your God is living among you.
    He is a mighty savior.
    He will take delight in you with gladness.
    With his love, he will calm all your fears.[fn]
    He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”
    Zep 3:18
    “I will gather you who mourn for the appointed festivals;
    you will be disgraced no more.[fn]
    Zep 3:19
    And I will deal severely with all who have oppressed you.
    I will save the weak and helpless ones;
    I will bring together
    those who were chased away.
    I will give glory and fame to my former exiles,
    wherever they have been mocked and shamed.
    Zep 3:20
    On that day I will gather you together
    and bring you home again.
    I will give you a good name, a name of distinction,
    among all the nations of the earth,
    as I restore your fortunes before their very eyes.
    I, the LORD, have spoken!” [ while praying he told me to turn here]

  16. God is with us!

    Praise God, Bro Murillo. For such a time as this, you are helping to strengthen, focus and unite His “killer sheep,” as Lance Wallnau calls us.
    “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven…..a time of WAR and a time of PEACE.” – Eccl. 3:1, 8b It’s time to take up our spiritual (not carnal) weapons, and WAR in the Spirit.
    We must pray to have eyes to see as He sees. The Big Picture, not the small. Not to miss the forest for the trees. This only comes through prayer, fasting and intimacy.
    David saw Goliath’s head cut off before he picked up a single stone.
    He is restoring the fear of the Lord to His church. This will spill out into the streets, just as it did in the days of Acts.
    God is never late. In the FULLNESS of time, He sent His Son…..In the FULLNESS of time, He will reveal Himself as Almighty God in this situation. But first, He is revealing to US who we really are – and who we are meant to be. Time for the old slave mentality to Egypt to be broken off.
    He’s the God of the breakthrough. He’s the God of the impossible. Always has been, always will be. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
    As one…..all eyes on You, Mighty God!!!

      Amen! Reminds me of Jeremiah 23 that was shared by Kevan last week. Verse 20 in the NLT says:
      The anger of the Lord will not diminish
      until it has finished all he has planned.
      In the days to come
      you will understand all this very clearly.

    Brother, I need to say this to you. When I was barely saved 38 years ago, I had a dream of you, standing on a cliff, and the fire and flames is what stayed with me, I lifted you up in prayer, but that’s all I knew to do. About 2 months ago, a random (or perhaps not) thought passed my thoughts, the dream, and a “hmmm, wonder what ever happened to Mario Murrillo, a week ago on a Friday I was going to watch some TV, and had left the channel on TBN when I had left in the am, that quickly the Holy spirit whispered ” leave it on TBN, there were 2 gentlemen speaking, and I was like, where do I know this man from? Well it was Mario Murrillo speaking to Mataxas about his book, well imagine my mind blowing experience when they show his book, with the flames and colors of my dream…Jesus!! His love is staggering to me, I know who I am in Christ, and have been seeking what it is I am to be about, right now right here in San Bernardino, Father God direct my steps. I shared this with a sister in the Lord, and she told me to ask God to use me as a vessel for His glory, then she asked for more information about your book, well when I looked it up again and realized that the title was vessels of fire and glory, I was completely undone by my Fathers love for me. Needed to share, oh and perhaps you and your team will be coming to my city.

    You are telling the absolute truth. Pastor Murillo. This is probably the most precious, valuable period in our history. I don’t want to waste it. IT IS PRECIOUS! I have felt during all this time with the prophetic words, that believers must get into the Bible. That is a living book and it will speak to individuals if they know and read it. I honor true prophets, but I have been amazed at how God will just impress my mind and spirit, “out of the blue” with scripture passages that fit the varied situations perfectly. Then later on I will hear true effective preachers like you or other Godly men, use the same scriptures. It is amazing and humbling. Bible reading is out of “vogue” with too many believers. But that is our answer, our guide, our instructions, our correction, and everything else. Everything you said in this blog is very important and relevant, quite relevant to all believers. I will share this with people I know.

    AMEN!!! As usual, so much of what you say I have heard and felt in my spirit. And the rest just testifies the truth! I too feel we are at the height of the battle – and the battle is great! I heard the Lord say the other day, worship is warfare, so if I feel at a loss as to words to pray, I begin to sing aloud and I imagine the bowels of hell begin to shake (Awake My Soul?). Thank you for always speaking the truth. While the truth can be hard at times, it brings freedom and refreshment that our God-less world cannot understand!

    Amen MMM! Thank you – the above is a confirmation of what I’ve been doing. And completely agree with all points.
    This battle is drawing the Lord’s remnant closer to Him. And what an awesome God we have that uses praise and worship to fight this battle during a time of “lockdowns”!
    And standing on Scripture to shift this mountain:
    Isaiah 44: 24-28
    Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer,
    And He who formed you from the womb: “I am the LORD, who makes all things, Who stretches out the heavens all alone, Who spreads abroad the earth by Myself; Who frustrates the signs of the babblers, And drives diviners mad; Who turns wise men backward, And makes their knowledge foolishness; Who confirms the word of His servant, And performs the counsel of His messengers; Who says to Jerusalem, ‘You shall be inhabited,’
    To the cities of Judah, ‘You shall be built,’ And I will raise up her waste places; Who says to the deep, “Be dry!
    And I will dry up your rivers’; Who says of Cyrus, ‘He is My shepherd, And he shall perform all My pleasure, Saying to Jerusalem, “You shall be built,”
    And to the temple, “Your foundation shall be laid.” ’
    Glory to God!
    God Bless You

    “Psalms 24: KJV
    1 (A Psalm of David.) The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
    2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
    3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?
    4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
    5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
    6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.
    7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
    8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
    9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
    10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.”

    You are so encouraging Mario. I wait expectantly for your blog daily so i know how to pray.

    PLEASE pray for Mr. Gavin Newsom’s children; according to the News 2 of his Children have the Virus. One thing I know, is IF; we do NOT deal with our issues our children have to deal with our unhealedness (heart issues) and as I can’t imagine NOT allowing children to Worship; as God, so speaks to children. Ezekiel 11:19; 36:26; Jeremiah 31:33, Hebrews 8:10; Matthew 17:21; Mark 9:29.
    This whole endeavor, is such a spiritual war (Ephesians 6, Matthew 11:12) and yes a number of my most gifted Apostolic types has been asking everyone to repent for a very, very long time; as so many Prophets. Amazing Church Leaders; the no fear of God and were they even called as we’ve been seeing the fruit of that for a very long time with their agenda and or behaving Christian-Matthew 6:24; Proverbs 9:10? Have a cousin whose a Pastor, who wasn’t called; and told him that at the very beginning; that’s scary! Matthew 18:6, Luke 17:2! Used to tell Dave Wilkerson for years, you can’t reason with a demon, somethings are only broken through prayer and fasting=scriptural! GOD LOVES ALL US CHILDREN-John 3:16. Fasting, Praying, Repenting, Worshipping, Speaking God’s Word, Speaking in Heavenly Language REPEAT is a great thing!

    SIDNEY POWELL is GOD’s Anointed….There can be No Doubt of this. See the attacks that are beginning on her…..The “enemies” ARE TERRIFIED OF HER! JUST LIKE THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN OF DONALD TRUMP!
    Her anger is Righteous anger…The LORD is revealing secret things to her…I have been praying that the LORD will give her dreams and visions, showing her Everything that she needs to know and where and who to find out from!!!! GOD IS ABLE AND HE IS DOING IT EVEN THIS VERY MINUTE.
    There are times in each of our lives WHEN WE HAVE TO WALK ALONE……THOSE WE THOUGHT WERE WITH US “JUMPED SHIP”—and we realized we could not—and in truth many times will never be able to put confidence in people. SAD BUT OH SO TRUE…
    Let us join together right here
    and right now and PRAY FOR HER. SHE, LIKE Donald Trump, is GOD’S CHOSEN VESSEL FOR THIS TIME IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. As we pray for her concerning my State of Georgia, etc.===Let us also Pray for Divine Protection for SIDNEY AND HER FAMILY, HER PETs, HOME, TRANSPORTATION, ETC. We must cover every base, and as we pray the LORD will SHOW US THINGS WE HAVE NOT YET THOUGHT ABOUT.
    I feel a little bit like we are the 509th Composite Group of World War II (my father was a member of this group.) Only GOD knows how important Mario Murillo is to His Kingdom….and those of us we are a part of Mario’s Regiment. Let US STAND STRONG AND WE WILL SEE THE VICTORY…..IN JESUS HOLY NAME AMEN.

    God bless you for your persistent faith, and focusing on the invisible warfare, Mario.
    Neh. 2: 2 Wherefore the king said unto me, Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou art not sick? this is nothing else but sorrow of heart. Then I was very sore afraid,
    3 And said unto the king, Let the king live for ever: why should not my countenance be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers’ sepulchres, lieth waste, and the gates thereof are consumed with fire?
    4 Then the king said unto me, For what dost thou make request? So I prayed to the God of heaven.
    5 And I said unto the king, If it please the king, and if thy servant have found favour in thy sight, that thou wouldest send me unto Judah, unto the city of my fathers’ sepulchres, that I may build it….
    …9 Then I came to the governors beyond the river, and gave them the king’s letters. Now the king had sent captains of the army and horsemen with me.
    10 When Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, heard of it, it grieved them exceedingly that there was come a man to seek the welfare of the children of Israel…
    …16 And the rulers knew not whither I went, or what I did; neither had I as yet told it to the Jews, nor to the priests, nor to the nobles, nor to the rulers, nor to the rest that did the work.
    17 Then said I unto them, Ye see the distress that we are in, how Jerusalem lieth waste, and the gates thereof are burned with fire: come, and let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we be no more a reproach.
    18 Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me; as also the king’s words that he had spoken unto me. And they said, Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work.
    19 But when Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian, heard it, they laughed us to scorn, and despised us, and said, What is this thing that ye do? will ye rebel against the king?
    20 Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem…
    …Neh. 6:1 Now it came to pass when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and Geshem the Arabian, and the rest of our enemies, heard that I had builded the wall, and that there was no breach left therein; (though at that time I had not set up the doors upon the gates;)
    2 That Sanballat and Geshem sent unto me, saying, Come, let us meet together in some one of the villages in the plain of Ono. But they thought to do me mischief.
    3 And I sent messengers unto them, saying, I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you?

    Pastor Murillo word well spoken. Pastors seem to think that bringing politics into the church message shouldn’t be done. Granted we don’t play politics at the praising time. I’ve objected in my church that not even a prayer for God’s power to come. Their idea is that the Lord is coming and there is nothing to do but welcome it. Well Castro was compared to Christ and the second coming. It’s been 60 years of oppression, persecution to Christian, churches are none existent and hunger! Something this naive pastors are in a dream! Scares me endlessly, praying that the Lord is listening to our plea! Thank you for you to have been upfront in the battle. God bless and let keep praying for mercy. Marcia De La Torre.

    This is what happens to a nation and a people who fundamentally can’t control their fallen nature.
    “Gen 4:7 “If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is couching at the door; its desire is for you, but you must master it.”
    America has become so corrupt, it is now virtually the ‘contaminants’ holding it together.
    Just as a small amount of ‘leaven’ causes the bread to rise, so too just a small amount of corruption spreads and causes a people to fall, as did Rome and many other empires and so called civilisations. 1 Cor 5.
    Why foremostly did they fall? Due to sexual immorality and corruption, as too America is well on the way to achieving. The only way that can stop is for righteous people to step up and take responsibility for the nation. As Abraham searched Sodom and Gomorrah for ten righteous people, today those righteous men and women should be Christians, but they too are asleep caught up in the affairs of the world as in Noah’s day.
    Jesus told Christians though his prayer he wanted unity, Jn 17 and to to keep his word, which means live it, to practise the ‘weightier matters’ of the Law; truth, justice, mercy, and to “Seek first God’s Kingdom and His Righteousness” which is what Jesus was also trying to do. The people didn’t understand, especially the religious leaders, and they conspired and had him put to death as is happening now to President Trump. Will we cry out for Biden/Barabbas or Trump/Jesus? Here is an opportunity to right a great historical wrong.
    God is not going to save us. We must save ourselves. God helps those who help themselves. “Keep my commandments and statutes and I will bless you, don’t and I will curse you”. Christianity must act or become a footnote in history. Man must perfect himself by keeping the word of God as Adam and Eve should have. Did God save them, His first sinless children?
    What are the so called born again Christians doing? It is not necessarily Christians who are leading the attack on the Globalists, it’s not necessarily Christians who give their lives to protect their country. Are all patriots Christians? Were Abraham, Jacob, Moses and the Old Testament prophets Christian.
    It’s just a title, a name for someone who believes in someone. So what? What does it mean if those Christians do nothing for their nation, because that is what they have been doing as the irresponsible stewards who didn’t protect or build God’s House. It is like the parable of the two sons.
    One son said no to his father when asked to work that day. The other son said yes, but then it was the son who said yes who didn’t help his father, and the son who said no who did end up helping.
    Religious people have a tendency to become arrogant and self-righteous, thinking that their God is always going into ‘bat for them’ and will always save them. Is that what happened with the northern tribes of Israel? Ask the northern tribes what happened to them, and ultimately how well did things fare for the southern tribes who became the Jewish people?
    Could God just save the Christians in the Communist world and currently now when they have corrupt merciless governance, evil leaders, and a dictatorial political system. No! That is why God wants governance of His nation, through the people taking responsibility for His House/nation. That is why America was founded, but what have the people done to God’s nation?
    Remember, God’s sovereignty fell into Satan’s hand because the children didn’t obey God’s word. What are Christians doing? Have we been obeying Jesus’ Commandments which explain our responsibilities as his followers. No we haven’t, hence the mess America is in. The proof is in the pudding.
    The livestock only get onto the highway when we don’t fix our fences and close the gates. Satan invaded Adam and Eve because they didn’t obey God. Satan invaded America because Christians didn’t obey God. That is what we have to understand. It is our failure to keep and practise Gods Commands and statutes that has brought God’s curse, chastisement, but effectively Satan invaded America, because the so called ‘chosen people’ did not do what they were supposed to do as with the Israelites. We should have been alert, vigilant, and ‘nipped it in the bud’, when we saw Satan coming into our homes, institutions and all of the ‘Seven Mountains’.
    Jesus picked up his cross and took responsibility for us, so we too must pick up our cross and take responsibility for America. We were saved, now we must save God’s Homeland, the Canaan God brought us into. That’s the deal. God wants to re-create His Garden of Eden as it was before the Fall.
    Prayer and fasting is good but action is better. Do you pray and fast for a hole in your roof to get fixed or for your lawns to get mowed. Hello?!
    That is why James said ‘faith without works’ meaning action is dead. Why do you think you have a physical body.? In order to accomplish God’s Will. We only pray and fast currently because we are so distant from God. If we were one with God, would we need to pray and fast. No! God would automatically be with us. Our thinking would be God’s thinking. Prayer and fasting is for fallen man who is still seeking salvation but not for those who are perfect as their heavenly Father is perfect as Jesus explained. Mt 5:48
    Had Adam and Eve kept the Commandment they would have achieved perfection, oneness with God, and then there would be no such words as salvation, grace, evil, sin nor Messiah. There would have been no Jesus Christ because he would not have been needed.
    God did not predestine the fall of his children nor His own suffering and misery.
    Gen 6:5-6 5 “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart”.
    Simply speaking, God gave man free will to choose whether to obey God or not. God predestines His Will, but it is up to man to obey and unite with that Will. That is why the history of restoration or salvation has taken so long, because man keeps disobeying God.
    1 Sam 15:22
    “And Samuel said, “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,
    as in obeying the voice of the Lord?
    Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,
    and to hearken than the fat of rams.
    23 For rebellion is as the sin of divination,
    and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.
    Because you have rejected the word of the Lord,
    he has also rejected you from being king.”
    So might God well say to Christians for their disobedience, apathy and ignorance, as Jesus spoke of the Jewish people:
    Mt 21:33 “Hear another parable. There was a householder who planted a vineyard, and set a hedge around it, and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower, and let it out to tenants, and went into another country. 34 When the season of fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants, to get his fruit; 35 and the tenants took his servants and beat one, killed another, and stoned another. 36 Again he sent other servants, more than the first; and they did the same to them. 37 Afterward he sent his son to them, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’ 38 But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves, ‘This is the heir; come, let us kill him and have his inheritance.’ 39 And they took him and cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. 40 When therefore the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?” 41 They said to him, “He will put those wretches to a miserable death, and let out the vineyard to other tenants who will give him the fruits in their seasons.”
    42 Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the scriptures:
    ‘The very stone which the builders rejected
    has become the head of the corner;
    this was the Lord’s doing,
    and it is marvellous in our eyes’?
    43 “Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be ‘taken away from you and given to a nation producing the fruits of it’.”
    45 When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they perceived that he was speaking about them. 46 But when they tried to arrest him, they feared the multitudes, because they held him to be a prophet”.
    Has America been producing the fruits of God’s Kingdom given that Jesus said, “Seek first God’s Kingdom and His Righteousness”. Well where is that ‘Kingdom of Righteousness’ in America. It does not exist, so that is why we are experiencing God’s ‘curse’/chastisement. Deut 28. We are not exempt from that.
    Therefore each person must repent if they want the ‘Kingdom of Heaven to be at hand’ in their own life.

      “Prayer and fasting is good but action is better.”
      I respectfully disagree. “Some trust in chariots. Some trust in horses. But we trust in the Lord our God.” Psalm 20:7
      Sometimes God instructs us to do certain things and we should do them, but they will never be more important than prayer and fasting.

      • Stephen

        Was God’s Commandment to Adam and Eve to pray and fast? No, it was to obey His Word, His Commandment, as also in 1 Sam 15, and Deut 28. Keeping God’s Word is ‘primary’ in the fulfilment of His Will.
        Deut 6:1 “These are the commands, decrees and laws the Lord your God directed me to teach you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, 2 so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the Lord your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life. 3 Hear, Israel, and be careful to obey so that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly in a land flowing with milk and honey, just as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, promised you.
        4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates”.
        Commands are to be acted upon, and therefore to become embodied in our hearts and minds. We can either embody good or embody evil by our actions.
        Furthermore, to ‘trust in the Lord’ is to obey Him, and ACT accordingly.

      • kingskid48

        I agree. We’re supposed to do the one, and not to leave the other undone, according to Scripture.

  40. Kevin Straight

    Thank you so much for your encouragement and direction. This is not a time to get discouraged or time to lose hope in what our God can do. Prayer and intercession are key to the time we are in. If you are a true intercessor you pray until you are answered or receive a word from God to stop. I haven’t been told to stop praying for the election of President Trump, and I still believe that God is going to work things out. In the mean time I am going to keep my focus on God, His word and prayer. Don’t look for answers to come from man. Reading the Word of God gives many examples of where things looked hopeless, and at the last minute God cam through with the victory. Follow the steps of this post and you will find hope, and also make good habits that can stay with you for a lifetime. My hope is in the Lord.??

    Oh wow!! This is just SO good Mario! Late getting to it, been trying all day, now at 1:00 a.m. finally ! This is a great timely message for this very moment in time!
    Every word SO right on point ! Thank you !! Standing with you and all who are interceding during this long testing time! I do know couple who will benefit from this word! They have gone off the rails and pretty much given up! ?
    Thank you again for posting,! ????????????????❤️


    Thank you so very much for a timely message for many but also especially for me. I love the goals the new ones to bring into my life once again, and the goal of never returning to the things that held no promise or fruit in my life.
    I truly appreciate all your writings to us and am in agreement with them all.
    Many thoughts here for preaching to the church to tell them it is not over until it is over.
    Blessings to you as you bless others!
