TONIGHT, GOD IS ORDERING THE AMERICAN CHURCH TO GET BACK ON THE OFFENSIVE

by | Aug 4, 2021 | Christianity Today, The American Church | 36 comments

It is the eve of our next tent crusade and I hear God speaking. Not sermons for the tent. And not even prayer for miracles. He is saying, “Tell the American Church it is time to get back on the offensive.” God is commanding the church to ignore every outward sign of resistance and limitation. He is ordering the church to get back on the attack. It is time to attack Satan’s stranglehold on America.

Remember! America is a land of covenants. There are old wells of revival. Deep spiritual history. And, folks, God is rolling up His sleeves. He is fiercely warring to restore what America was before the poison of “wokeness” entered her veins.

It is time to look back and realize what those freedom fighters faced. That group of people who crossed an ocean on pieces of wood that you and I wouldn’t dare step onto—let alone sail over an ocean—in order to have freedom to worship Christ.

We need to rediscover the people who carved a nation out of the wilderness. The same kind of spirit and courage they had, has got to get back into us!

The American church desperately needs a mass renewing of the inner man.  2 Corinthians 4:16-18 says, “Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”

We cannot dwell on the impossibility of restoring America. God is for us. God is upon us. The money, influence, open doors, gifts of power, and strategies are here now―not at some distant date in the future.

No devil and no perversion can stand before the Body of Christ. Not when She shakes Herself from Her division and Her confusion, and Her lack of memory.

Remember, David’s sling was his second weapon. His first weapon was his memory of what God had done in the past. He looked at Saul and said, “You want to know why that nine-and-a-half-foot tall man is going to die? It is because your servant has killed a lion and a bear.”

American history is being banned, not because of racism, but because the devil knows the testimony of God that runs through it! The Bible says, “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.” The list of benefits to America that have come from God is endless!

Church! We have been here before. We’ve been in worse spots than this.  We have won in the past and we can win again. And we are going to win, by the power of God. God just needs to turn on the fire, and stir that fire again in our souls!

Sun Tzu wrote in The Art of War, “Warriors of old first placed themselves beyond the possibility of defeat, and then waited for an opportunity of defeating the enemy.” That is what I do spiritually, in the tent. Can I get you away from the news for a moment? Can I get you to understand the secret for getting back on the attack—regardless of who you are?

Why am I writing this to you now? Because I am about to start a tent crusade in Sacramento. That is what triggered this blog. I saw the blazing similarity between what I do every time I get ready to win a fresh battle. We must see that the victory is already ours.

One important thing that everyone can take away from what I do to get ready for a tent crusade, is that I don’t let the outward appearance sway me. Can you imagine standing in front of a tent full of wheelchairs and people on crutches, and some of the most absolutely suffering humanity you have ever seen? I don’t see them that way. I cannot walk into the tent with my own eyes.

Before I walk into that tent, I see those people already healed. I see the drug addicts already delivered. I have already won the war, alone with God. That is why everyone who knows me knows that they have to jealously guard my afternoon, because I cannot be with anyone but Christ. And Christ must defeat my flesh. And if He defeats me, and my flesh, then He can work through me to defeat the powers of darkness. If God can break every preacher free of their own ego, the nation will fall to God.

Fire! Besides confidence, we also need fire. And fire will burn out indecision. It will burn out confusion. It will allow you to put all the controversy on the shelf, and then resume the urgent act of praying the right words: “Lord, the nation is in serious trouble. You called me, You trained me, You raised me up for a specific purpose, and I cannot be distracted by all that the enemy is doing.”

God can make you the catalyst. A catalyst is an element that changes everything around it, without itself undergoing a change. Imagine how important that is right now.

The Gospel is also a catalyst. When I charge onto the stage, I am telling myself: “Here is what God told me to tell America.” And knowing that I am saying what God told me to tell America gives me the right to believe that the dead will be raised, the addict will be delivered, and the churches will be unified.

My confession is: “I have the fire. I have the message that God gave me for America!” If you also will get alone with God, and gain that same confidence, nothing will be able to stop you.

Here is the point I want to make, in Acts 9, Dorcas was dead. Sometimes we need faith to come at us from a completely new direction. Dorcas was dead, and the people around her dead body said, “This is not right! This is not right! This must not be!”

When the church leaders found out that Peter, the great Apostle, was nearby, in Joppa, they sent for him. They didn’t bring him there for a wake. They didn’t invite him there to reminisce about Dorcas’ life. They literally said, “Bring him here, to raise her from the dead.” That is a level of submission to the Spirit and power in the Book of Acts that we can hardly relate to.

In that same way—if we become incapable of tolerating the condition of America—if we remember our families and our God, then we can do battle and reclaim our nation.

Nehemiah 4:14, And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses.”

P.S. In a way we all have a stake in the great crusade that begins Sunday in Sacramento. The impact is not just local. Many will not only be saved and healed, but a host of ministries are going to be bolder about preaching the Gospel in their communities. Therefore pray fervently for this upcoming miracle in Sacramento. MM

    As shall we as his people!!

    • Athena Pitsikoulis

      I am in complete agreement and I hear the same things in my spirit. God is blowing a fresh breathe on the piolet lights of our hearts to cause a fire revival that this land has never seen. Standing and marching with you brother.

    • Glenn P Cureton

      I’d be there if I could. I commit to pray for you and for the meetings, that the Holy Spirit will move in an unfettered way. Blessings in the name of Jesus.

    • Robert Norris

    its about time!

    Just for your encouragement dear man of God, this is how i sent out this word to my facebook family of whom many are unsaved and fence riding still. If you do not think that America will see revival again before Christ Jesus comes for His bride, think again. California is being absolutely scorched by ‘The Fire of our precious Holy Spirit’ through this man of God. Doris and i have been to services in Tulsa with this warrior for Christ and he is as real and transparent (with all humbleness and boldness) as i have ever witnessed. And for the religious ‘nay sayer’ humbleness is not being weak and timid. True humbleness is having the boldness, is having the spiritual backbone to say exactly what Holy Spirit is telling you to say ‘without reservation’ the moment He tells you to do so. Need proof, well read this and judge for yourself. Acts 4:29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that WITH ALL BOLDNESS they may speak thy word, … Phil 1:20 According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that WITH ALL BOLDNESS, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death … Mark 13:11
    But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost. You better read the 13th chapter of mark before you say, “your taking that verse out of context,” Gods not playing in this hour. Neither is Mario, and i dare say myself either.

    • Teresa Bell

      Amen and Amen.. So well said and back up with God’s Word.

      SHOUT THESE COMMENTS FROM THE HOUSE TOPS FROM SEA TO SHINING SEA!

    I agree with you Mario,

    Christians must see the lost, afflicted, and just plan out ignorant Christians thru God’s eyes those people who are oblivious to what is going on around us, in our once great nation and around the world. We my pray for our God to move once again for our nation and people around the world. I believe this is a move of God and we pray that God will grant us mercy, revival and reformation for the USA and around the world and we will let our voices be heard. May God bless the crusade in Sacramento too!

  5. Collin R Williams

    May our Father continue to bless you and your ministry. May the Holy Spirit rise up like never before.

  6. P.Chris

    The Church has to wake up also the pastors. I pray that you continue awakening the church in the cities you plant the seed of God !!

    • Sheila Price

      Yes and Amen! There is a young couple God is using, who have sold everything, bought a RV and with their 3 children are traveling America to reignite the revival fires in places like Jessamine County, Kentucky, (Wilmore) and Red River Gorge Meeting House in KY in July, NC in August.
      Jessica and Parker Green with their Saturate ministry.
      God IS on the move!

    It is time. G-D has everything in place for a spiritual tidal wave. A spiritual revolution.

  8. Kathleen S Wood

    We definitely need every believer in Christ to get serious and intense with God,. Most churches do not prwach fasting and prayer for overcoming our flesh anymore. Most do not envourage believers to seek and use the gifts of the Spirit or the Baptism of the Holy Ghost in power. We need to get back to what the Bible says regardless of compromising, false doctrine, traditions and the 501c3 which cuts off the Head and substitutes the state for a head. No, God is not pleased. Yes, He and only He can revive. But we must repent. The time, desire, passion and love for Jesus to sit at His feet and get back to basics and away from entertainment and sloth is now.

  9. Terry

    Overpower the enemy with the power of God’s Kingdom, Mario. Praying for you.

  10. Darlene W

    Nothing can stop this move of God. Nothing. Believing for exceedingly,abundantly,above all that we can ask or think in this harvest of souls. May the Lamb receive the rewards of his suffering

  11. Jeff

    Mario, I’m praying against the tent crusade’ opposition. It will be (it is) fierce. Satan does not want this revival to happen. My prayer is that God keep anyone from interfering, and that anyone who tries to stop it GOD would stop them in such a way that He gets greater glory than if there hadn’t been an attempt to oppose.

    • Darlene W

      Any devil that gets too near will wish to be sent to a dry and arid place

  12. Jeff & Jackie

    Mario, you come before my wife and I daily in our prayers. Not just the tent crusade, but your message to the church, the nation and the world. We have been praying for a continual flow of fresh anointing and that you and your volunteers be surrounded by the Host of Heaven. We pray that HE prepare the hearts of those who will be in attendance and everywhere for that matter, to receive His word through His conduits, who like you, are uncompromising in putting forth The Unadulterated Message. I do not ever remember a time when one man and one ministry has come so fervently before me/us so often. And we are but one of the army of those who are holding you up in prayer. That in and of itself is an incredibly powerful testimony of what He has in store for your ministry now and in the days, weeks and months to come. God bless you, Mario. We will continue to pray as fervently as the Lord leads for you, your ministry and Sacramento!

  13. Laura

    Mario, I just read your blog this morning and I cried. Yes , my heart says yes to everything you wrote this morning. It was a blasting confirmation of what the Lord spoke this morning to me from His Word: here it is:

    This is what the Lord has spoken to my heart this morning. I am sending it exactly as I received and wrote it in my diary:

    From Song of Solomon 5:7 ( and linked with Isaiah 35:2)

    ” Your head is crowned like Mount Carmel” = (Carmel is the mountain where Elijah had power with God)

    “the hair like purple = purple is the royal color = it speaks of royal priesthood = like Esther holding the scepter that her “King/husband” had extended to her = it speaks of ministering within the veil with our Great High Priest.

    Hair = is a symbol of strength!. HER PRAYERS CAPTIVATES THE KING! (They have strength with the King!).

    From Isaiah 35:2

    ” those who have bee in the desert (abandoned, forsaken, disjointed) are blossoming. God gives them the glory of Lebanon, the majesty of God. They will see the glory of the Lord, the Majesty of our God.

    verse 3 therefore, “be encouraged! Do not fear! Your God comes with vengeance! He brings divine retribution (to His enemies)”.
    P.S. know that that I was at Calvary Community Church in San Jose when you ministered there…May God so richly bless you!

  14. Mary Peterson

    Hi Mario Murillo, warrior for Christ.
    I watched the Tuesday Flashpoint last night. Only God given power flows through the veins of the prophets and the evangelist. As soon as that was over, up popped a church service with Robin D Bullock. He has great respect for you, and said as much throughout his service about evangelists and evangelism. He even mentioned he wished you could hear that broadcast. I thought I copied the link to that program but I didn’t, I will have to go back and find it and I will try to get it to you. God has His hands on you all for this crusade, I stand up with you all the way from Clayton North Carolina..Amen

  15. RAFO

    We agree with you for revival to break out and sweep across California and this nation! The enemy is so entrenched, nothing short of a grass roots bottom up spiritual awakening will dislodge and dispel the darkness! We need to see demons and their human confederates running for cover as the Light shines forth… may California, may Sacramento, become a fountain of the Lord’s outpouring Spirit!

  16. Michelle Marie Travis

    Mario Murillo,
    You are a pioneer, a true blaze runner for the body of our Lord Jesus Christ. I will be praying
    for the fire of the Holy Spirit to ignite the inner souls of those attending, and the fire of the living, all powerful, all knowing, all loving, all merciful God in heaven to have His way with the entire tent event. There is a mighty move of God happening all over the place, as we unite in one faith, one baptism, one spirit, one Lord, one God and Father is over all and in all!!

  17. Darlene W

    Eagles are watching way out in the distance for predators. Ministering flames of fire are standing guard. God sits on the throne watching and laughing at the frailty of his enemies. Jesus stripped the enemy of all power. They are paralyzed and fear us if we stand in our appointed authority.

  18. Becky

    An appropriate old time religion song “Onward Christian soldiers, marching as to war..with the Cross of Jesus going on before……Amen!! We are at war but God will fight for us. We are called to fight the Fight of Faith!! God bless you Mario and I pray that God anoint you to preach Truth, and anoint the people to receive the Word and God in their heats. Only God can change hearts and transform lives. AMEN?!! Victory is on its way!

  19. Michelle G

    The victory is already won! The enemy is vanquished. And yet, the battle must still be fought. May the Lord renew your youth, Mario, as you wield your sword of the Spirit. He has given you the victory!

  20. kingskid48

    It is going to happen. The Spiritual Earthquake that already beginning is on its way. It will flood up and down and across Californian, north/south/east/west..it’s coming, and satan cannot stop it..he cannot stop what God is about to do in California, and it will flood across the nation..north/south/east/west..America will be saved.

  21. Susan

    Amen MMM!
    Been following your Blog since the beginning of the year. And so glad to read that Christians must be on the offensive now! And that we are not a remnant, but an army. So glad to read of the revival that IS! God Bless You and protect you – In Jesus Name. Amen

  22. Brenda Bounds

    Amen , Bro Mario we will be there praying for u and all those Healed people coming in and all those set free clean people that also coming under the tent. Holy Spirit We Invite u In to Have your Way!! God Blessing To All. I pray peace over Israel and the United States of America. God bless 🇮🇱📖🇺🇸✝️🙏🏻🕊🔥Fire! Fire!

    As you said Mario, “It is the eve of our next tent crusade and I hear God speaking. Not sermons for the tent. And not even prayer for miracles. He is saying, “Tell the American Church it is time to get back on the offensive.” God is commanding the church to ignore every outward sign of resistance and limitation. He is ordering the church to get back on the attack. It is time to attack Satan’s stranglehold on America”.

    That is why Jesus said:

    Mt 7:21 “Not every one who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you evildoers”.

    Why, because Jesus commanded us to Seek ‘FIRST’ God’s Kingdom and His Righteousness, and to disciple/steward nations for God’s governance, (Mt 28:19-20, Lk 12:42-49) and to claim the nation for God through every aspect and area of culture in order to establish God’s Kingdom, “that it were already kindled”.

    This is why Jesus also said:

    Mt 12:39 “An evil and adulterous generations seeks for a sign and no sign will be given accept the sign of Jonah”, as for Nineveh, the sign of ‘Repentance’!

    And: Jn 4:46-48 NLT, NIV

    God is wanting us to take care of the weightier matters and issues of His heart, establish his Kingdom of righteousness justice and true love, a society imbued with the love and practice of God’s Word; not signs, wonders, and miracles.

    How many lepers came back and thanked Jesus for healing them? Only one, and he was a Samaritan.

    Also read Mt 8:10-12, Mt 3:7-10 John’s reproach to the people. Who are those people today? Christians.

    It is now Christians who are the stumbling block for God’s Will to be realised, because instead of going about our Father’s business seeking and building God’s House, God’s nation we have been centred on signs, wonders, and miracles and on our own ‘panelled homes’ and blessings.

    That is not what Jesus taught nor the example he set. Jn 13:12-17 So how are you saved when you do not emulate the son. ‘Is a servant greater than his master’?

    “Depart from me you evildoers I never knew you”.

    You took God’s grace and buried it like the servant in the ‘Parable of the Talents’. As Jesus said, he did not come to judge us but we will be judged by his word. The very word we read in the bible will be our judge.

    Did you embody and practise the Word as Jesus did and commanded us to do? Only you know the answer to that. Jn 14:23-24

    The age of just having faith is over, God requires attendance to, and the embodiment of His Word as Jesus said:

    Mt 5:48 “You therefore must be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect” and in James 2, ‘Faith without works meaning action is dead’.

    The sin of omission (dereliction of duty) is also the sin of commission. Heb 10:26-31.

    God is seeking His Kingdom, so should we, and that doesn’t happen by just believing in God, Jesus and miracles. We must act for God’s Kingdom to come on earth as it is in heaven.

    Just as God told Mario at the beginning of his post.

  24. Stephen

    Mario, check your ‘held for review file’.
