A reckoning is a calculating of one’s position within a situation and then taking the necessary steps; doing what needs to be done. It is not just coming to terms with something, but settling that which needs settling.
A reckoning is a realization of what the Holy Spirit is saying because the occasion demands it.  1 Samuel 10:6-7 says, “Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.”
 What is needed in California—what God has calculated for California—is way beyond a crusade. And it is because most churches have refused to go ‘way beyond’ that our nation has become lost.

When Christians today put on events, they are often tricked by the enemy.

The devil keeps them from doing what needs to be done. Their analysis of the situation is faulty because it is based on what they have been taught society needs.  What they have been taught is from a bygone time, a time before we were divided, addicted, perverted, and demonized.
Today the power of the Cross must clash with and destroy demonic strongholds. By the stripes of Jesus on the Cross, many must be healed.
Our Tent site cannot just be holy ground, it must be a battleground! A frontline in the invisible war. A giant leap in the war to return California back to God.
As I was packing for California, a question kept burning in my soul. Do we really understand what is at stake in these four nights?
When you look at everything that is going on around us:
Tens of thousands of truckers are battling for freedom.
Media monsters meanwhile turn up the heat on all who will not surrender to the Leftist agenda.
Perversion intensifies as social media says, while they will not ban sex trafficking sites, they will take down Christian messages.


The Left is not building back better. They are building a prison!

No matter how disastrous their policies are, the Left will not stop until we are destroyed. Therefore we must do what the occasion demands by the power of the Holy Spirit. That is exactly why this is a reckoning!
Why is this event in Hanford greater than an outreach? Because the evil is greater. The kind of miracle we need must be strong medicine. It must be more than words. More than groovy feelings. This event must contain the firepower described in 2 Corinthians 10:4, “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds…”
We are not here to pull off a good event. We are here to pull down strongholds. This is no soothing campaign of chicken soup for the soul. This is fire! This is a reckoning!
This is fire like the fire that Elijah called down. Fire that says, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” (1 Kings 18). Elijah measured the situation and concluded that the situation is way beyond words or negotiation. It is a time for fire!
It is time for the lost to see that the root of their misery is the outcome of being enslaved to sin and Satan. The intensity of evil and the depth of suffering in that evil demand direct answers.
It is time for the power of God and the conviction of the Holy Spirit to destroy excuses.


We are not merely serving up platitudes—we are serving eviction notices to the devil and his minions! They must pack up and get out!

We must take the most courageous step of faith of all: Producing signs and wonders that prove the message is from God. Though there was opposition to the early church, “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” (Acts 14:3).
The question should never be, ‘What will happen if we try, but nothing happens?’ The question that should haunt us is, ‘What if God is about to turn the tide of evil in our favor, but we are too timid to do as the occasion demands?’
Will we offend people by our bold attack? That does not matter. Pastor: Will you lose members in your church if you obey God? That also does not matter. If they left you because you obeyed God, you never had them anyway.
From the first prayer to the very last word, these four days in Hanford will be a reckoning!

    WOW this is your most powerful blog you’ve written. I’m 36 hours from flying out from North Alabama to work as a volunteer in this crusade. The excitement is building.

      • Mona

        Just flew in from the east coast to LAX ~ I didn’t even wear my mask once I left exited my gate. I walked through the airport without a problem- just kept on moving

    • Maureen Capezza

      I pray we would have one in every state.and city! I have been to so many churches here. All on the fence or just demonic. Enemy so attacking my family. The demonic activity I’m witnessing is unbelievable. One comes to a head and turns out for the good of His babies and another arises. Oh Holy Fire come burn the bridges for all who stand on Your Holy Rock and our loved ones who must endure this awful warfare. In the name and Blood of Jesus Christ….

    • Grant Perry

JESUS IS THE VICTOR and we WIN who love and live for HIM! AMEN!!!!!

  3. lynexxa

    Over the last couple of weeks I have found myself writing on social media that we don’t only need a great awakening, we also need a great national reckoning. The enemy has stolen much from us and it must be dealt with and repaid.

    • Tricia Sims

      Praying and believing for a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit. I was at the New York Living Proof last October and it was wonderful to experience an atmosphere where the Holy Spirit was present and working! All God’s blessings and angels charge over you, Mario, and your team as you minister to all those who attend.

  4. Wordforworld

    Mario, your anointed message brings me to respond with revelation that may help The Body of Christ.

    Simply put,
    the minions of The Liar are now lying to him, causing breakdown of all plans & communication.
    The minions of the Deceiver are deceiving him & their ranks (!) causing inner tension within their camps.
    The minions of the Disloyal one, are no longer loyal to him! They are embezzling! Abandoning him. The thieves are robbing The Thief (!) of His assets.

    Why should such an unfaithful, disloyal, deceiver have servants that are faithful? Loyal? True? Why should a thief expect honest accountants???

    Therefore, we KNOW to keep the “upper hand” as the Lord God reveals the direction of spiritual warfare. We AGREE with Jesus that the enemy’s camp has imploded from within! We speak the Victory, in Jesus’ Name, that Truth has broken thru the morass of lies! The enemy’s resources are depleted. Many of his servants/followers have abandoned him! They hate each other!

    The servants/minions are the evil spirits behind a person, as well as the person who served the enemy.
    Regarding the person, we see the face of the “great harvest!” These are coming to the LORD, the Saviour! These ARE souls who are leaving the darkness! (There is NO middle ground!)

    Praise God!
    I’ve said it before, Saints!

    • Rue

      I read this in amazement. I was shown this same thing a few days ago, but thought I must be imagining it, that surely this couldn’t be true! What a surprise to read this confirmation here tonight.

  5. Collin R Williams

    May the Holy Spirit descend like he did in the early Church. May he bring signs and wonders that amaze the nation and the world. We serve the one and only God.

  6. Teena

    I have been parrying for the last 2 weeks with a heavy burden for souls and healing. I can’t go myself, but I know the Holy Spirit will be there. Thank you for your ministry. I’m also praying for you and you wife and all the workers to be filled with the Spirit of God in power. AMEN!

  7. Kathy

    Praying and expecting for mighty miracles and mighty move of God through the Holy Spirit as he uses Mario Muriilo to bring us believers together in His power, strength and might!!!!

    Holy Spirit Fire on everyone that is there working and an even larger FIRE on all who are going to the tent the great harvest of God . Thank you to all the people who are part of the harvester working the fields. God’s blessings ❤️

    • Teri

      My prayers for Mario and his team include protection, but I also keep praying and seeing a physical fire over the tent! A fire of the spirit that is tangible and cannot be ignored by local media!

  12. prayinginok

    Praying with you and for you!

  13. Glenn Barling

    The drought breaks with unmeasured Holy Spirit rain in super abundance. The SUPER BLOOM follows. I hear the sound of the abundance of rain! It is time – It is now – It is WOW!!

  14. Edith

    I’ve been praying for this crusade and will continue to cover you, your team and the whole meeting. That the awesome presence of God will be undeniable and that His demonstration of power will be something never seen before. Shalom!!!

  15. Deborah Ann Boudreaux

    Yes Lord let the reckoning begin ;🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

  16. Jeanette

    That is so on point!!

  17. Cheryl Mays

    I haven’t watched Mario very often. But I just watched the Fevruary 16th,2022 program. Awesome. Amen and Amen. I just want to know what can we do and where do we go from here.

  18. Dale E. Stevens

    I am in Total Agreement with you Mario! I want to break and destroy all of the Enemies house and everything connected to him. To set all of his prisoners free. May every desire and bold requests of yours be overwhelmingly fulfilled!

  19. Adelin Schauer

    I’m so excited about this meeting. I’m expecting a move of the Spirit that is abundantly more than I can think or imagine!

  20. Elyce Mouskondis

    If we could all have the conviction and courage the truckers have in Canada the Holy Spirit could wipe away the enemy in our nation.
    We must stand as you do Mario and believe that signs, wonders and miracles will happen not only in the tent meetings but across the world. Praying for you. Elyce

  21. Jim Brubaker

    Most of problem solving is defining the problem! Thank God for the discernment to see the issues, and to call on the One with the answers!

  22. Cydney Beatty

    Oh totally going after the strongholds globally as well. Evil seems to be prevailing but God. He is getting ready to release His wrath on these governments that are evil. He gave them time to repent. Now its reaping and sowing time by the hand of God.

  23. Gerald Jolicoeur

    Keep on preaching. God is with you.

  24. Silvia Dias

    I agree Canada needs your prayers In the Name of Jesus

  32. Deborah G.

    You are precious Bro. Mario!! We need more men like you!! Thank you for standing above the fray and giving us the clarion call. The world is dying all around us, and we will NOT BE SILENT any longer!! The Glory of God is falling on His true servants, and we will be the messengers and the FLAMES of FIRE for our GOD. I ask for prayer as we are seeking a new senior pastor for our large congregation. I am praying for a man of fire and glory who will not bow to anyone but God. Dear Lord we need you now more than ever!! God bless you and your team!!

  33. Carleta

    I appreciate Bro. Mario and his ministry…the boldness to speak the truth of what’s needed in this last hour before the coming of the Lord. I’ll. Be praying for These upcoming services
    Hanford. BTW, I’m already on his mailing list.

  34. lance foreman

    as it should be, proper message

  35. Karen Secrest

    Have to tell you..that picture of grass and It Rained has uplifted my Spirit so high its become a reminded when the negative floats by: IT RAINED

  36. John Signorelli

    Mario, I still do not see the urgency in the leadership of the church here in the US recognizing the times we are living in. It can not be church as usual. The supernatural power of God must begin to dominate our gatherings. I have been paying close attention to Canada being that I live in Niagara Falls NY and have a place in Canada. There godless, humanist tyrannical Premiere Justin Trudeau represents such an evil oppressive mindset with his communist style of governing and his talking points that are identical to the Biden administration. He has stated that if you do not think like him you are an enemy of the country and should be punished. I’m frustrated with many leaders in the church who are not grasping the severity of this. I have been speaking about these issues for the last 3 years and the assault on our form of government in the US. Ultimately it is the church of Jesus Christ that they want to destroy. I’m with you and will be praying for you and the team this week. See you in Batavia. John Signorelli

    • Rue

      Oh my John Signorelli, I so agree with you, and have been so frustrated about this for awhile now. I still get communication from the seniors group at a church I used to attend with a friend, and for the last day or two the conversation/discussion has been about what type of passenger van to purchase for approx $90,000, to replace their current one for their senior excursions. I just want to shout “people the world is crumbling around us, and people are headed for hell, and this is what you’re concerned about”???

  37. kingskid48

    Thank you, Pastor Mario, for your faithfulness to the Lord, for your bold, strong stance, and for your encouragement. I am so excited about your coming meeting in Hanford. Blessings upon you, your family, crew, and all helpers.

  38. Glenda Lattimore

    Yes and Amen to all you have written, Mario. The Lord says the Body of Christ is busy exercising when they should be exorcising! God bless you!

  39. Chuck Booth

    Thank you Mario for igniting the bold fire of the Holy Spirit right from the Throne of Glory. I’m on my way from Houston as a volunteer to help fan the flames any way needed to break bondages and increase the flock.

  40. bwalker42

    Praise God and Amen and Amen! Bless God in Heaven! Bless Jesus! Much Much Love of God!

  41. Joshua' Paul The Dumb Donkey

    Let IT Be so Mario a Reckoning there must be …

    But let me add this my Brother, the people in the picture above are all looking to Jesus’ for not just Salvation. But for help in their everyday Lives. God can give them provisions miraculously & through Gods People.

    However, these people above must learn to be taught how to Discipline themselves to learn & apply How To Walk Like Jesus Walked when He was 1st here. Do the things He did yet in a Greater Way. Doing so because He Says We Can.

    Becoming a New Creation via The Inward Holy Spirit & The Scriptures within & Through them. That being said you may have the tools available to do this. May I suggest this one – if you will – @

    If it helps those above and those to come – I hope you will share it with them … at the very least Pray for Us as we Pray for you & Gods Assignment God has Called you too …

    Joshua’ Paul

  42. Marleen

    Praying with all and expecting a glorious visitation of the Holy Spirit. I can’t wait to hear the praise reports, in Jesus’ Name!

  43. Marsha Carol Watson Gandy

    MARIO, as Allen said, this is the Most Powerful message you have ever given. I have been praying over the Hanford Crusade ever since you first mentioned it……Now it is here……I can’t get down on my knees anymore. because of knee problems—but in my spirit I am on my knees in prayer.

    As YOU have Declared and Decreed—–and all of us who have been in Agreement with YOU—IT WILL BE DONE. In the precious and holy name of JESUS CHRIST. Amen

  44. Carolyn denison

    Praise be to God!
    Lord have your way!

  45. Sandra Brannon

    Yes, indeed…a reckoning it must be, because God’s word is eternal. “Forever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.” Psalms 119:89 “For with God nothing will be impossible.” Luke 1:37 “He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.” Job 5:9 Expect great things from a great God!

  46. Carolyn Denison’s

    Glory to the one and only true God! Will be there and will be fasting and praying for all those who are in bondage. For strongholds being destroyed . For the salvation of so so many 🙏🙏🙏🙌🙌🙌darkness must bow and leave California in the mighty name of Jesus!

  47. KMM

    Sounds like the fiery Mario Murillo I remember hearing a few times when I lived in California in the late 70’s. Mario, at 72 years old, you make me want to ‘jump over a wall and run through a troop!’ The Lord looked for a man who would go for him– ‘armed & dangerous’ you’re helping to lead the charge once again! Awesome! You stir us ALL up, Christians & non–to ask for & receive His Fire! Thank you, may God continue to bless you & protect you a hundred fold. Be the firebrand you always were–set the foxes tails ablaze & let them run through the enemy’s camp!! Living Proof!!

  48. Sandra

    You are the man of the hour and my prayer time and BIBLE study time just brings it all together for such a time as this! So sad to see people cave in to man and believe him over GOD but what the enemy is doing to harm us GOD will turn around and reverse it as Haman tried to do so was it done to him! Thank GOD for you and tour voice for HIM! Praising GOD for an explosion of HIS power!

  49. kingskid48

    I hope and pray that Mario’s Hanford meeting will be a turning point for California.

    We are in one of the worst droughts I have ever seen. I truly believe we are under judgement. The farmers are going to get 20″ of water from the district. If you know even the basics of farming, you know these farmers are going to hurt this year. Please pray for them. Good, decent, hard working people, working their farms well into their 80’s. Many of them not saved, or nominal Believers, but good folks. It breaks my heart to see what is happening.

    I believe that Gavin Newwsom and the leftists legislators, school boards, and marxist teachers have brought California to the brink of judgement and destruction. We had a chance at a decent man for governor and instead, this state re-elected a vampire by 67%. How does that happen? I believe a large part of it has to be laid at the door of the Church.

    The recall event was being pushed by secular people. I heard almost nothing from church/spiritual sources-about something that was as important as saving the state that is called, The Bread Basket of the World. Perhaps it was not God’s timing, or perhaps we just fell flat on our faces.

    This morning Gavin Newsom read down the list of Conservative news sources that he labeled as, “propaganda sites”. He even named Mike Lindell. He plans on setting up a department to, “monitor misinformation”. If that doesn’t send chills down your spine, nothing will.

    It’s now or never. Now is the time for the breakthrough. Now is the time for Mario’s tent meeting, for salvations, miracles, deliverances. It’s time for all of it to burst forth. California must be saved in order for the nation to survive.

    While I’m on this rant, I’m going to say this. I believe the Church-every one of us-need to search our hearts and get the garbage out. I know I am Old School, but I continue to be shocked at the entertainment that many Christians take part in and condone. Even well-known Christians who have appeared on Christian programs have spoken favorably of the dirty rappers that appeared at the Super Bowl. So, THANK YOU, Pastor Mario, for speaking out against them recently. And CHEERS to Greg Kelley of Newsmax for coming out strong against them. We are losing record numbers of law enforcement officers to violent crime, and the NFL chooses people such as this to spew their anti-police lyrics out to families and children? Greg Kelley was right. He said they should not even have been allowed on the premises.

    We have lost our way as a nation and it is now or never. We return to the Lord soon or say goodbye to the America we knew.

    • prayinginok

      KingsKid48, I wonder if this is the same way that Newsom got his “win”? There is a shaking occurring in the world right now. I think God has had enough!

  50. Susie Edwards

    I am joining my prayers with all lifting up this Awakening reckoning in Hanaford. I believe the Fire of God will fall and change everything from now to when we go home with JESUS. Amen

  51. drajaiyeola

    Glory to God! He is going to fill the whole of California with His glory as the waters covers the sea, looking forward being part of this manifestation of God Himself.

  52. Monica

    Greetings Brother Mario,
    I’m driving to Hanford from Las Vegas, NV Saturday morning to parter with you and your team in war.. to pull down strongholds and bind principalities and powers of the enemy!

    God visited me many times in the first month of the Pandemic shutdown with, dreams, visions, and prophecy… one was that the Glory of God was going to be released on the earth and l seen what looked like a tsunami wave that rose and flooded the earth with his thick cloud like spirit.. he said there would be a great harvest of souls.

    Another was a prophetic word released during prayer that God was going to be moving from the West-coast through East-coast, and the East-coast through the West-coast of our Nation.. soon after that I seen your YouTube about Bakersfield and started seeing many other Preachers that God had been revealing the same prophecies to!!

    I’m extremely excited to volunteer in your crusade and avail myself to God’s call! Another time He woke me and showed me in quick flashes over last 40yrs of knowing him.. when He was with me in circumstances at different ages and gave me a word from scripture of being called and purposed before being born and then said “we have work to do” at the end of that vision. I’ve been seeing demons manifest in my presence, and seen God use me in healing ministry and Holy Spirit baptisms much!
    So YES I’m excited to see God’s Glory manifest again! (I went to a Kentucky & an Ohio Tent Revival last year) but I know your meetings are what God revealed to me in 2020 and had me praying about as He released words of prophetic declaration out of my mouth. What an Honor!
    God bless you Sir,
    Monica Dwyer
    Disciples of God Ministries

  54. Nancy Drummond

    Hello, Mario! Could you consider coming to Oregon? I’m a native Californian, born and raised in Oakland. My sister lived across the street from your office on El Pintado Rd. where you were for some years. I live outside of Salem now, and we could sure use a mighty touch of God in this area. Sincerely, Nancy Drummond.
