This is the first tropical storm warning in California history. This is not supposed to be happening. This is a major shift in weather models—an anomaly. The warning extends from the state’s southern border to just north of Los Angeles.

Only God knows what is about to happen to Los Angeles.

Governor Gavin Newsom on Saturday proclaimed a state of emergency to be in effect for a large portion of Southern California, as the state prepares for a historic hurricane which is expected to cause extreme rain and flooding.

There are “more than 7,500 boots on the ground” deployed to help communities protect the people of California from the possible impacts of Hurricane Hilary, according to the release from his office.

Only God knows what is about to happen to Los Angeles.

“Today, Governor Gavin Newsom proclaimed a state of emergency for much of Southern California to support Hurricane Hilary response and recovery efforts as the state continues mobilizing and coordinating resources ahead of the storm’s forecasted impacts, starting today,” the release read.

Mario Murillo Ministries finds itself in a familiar situation. Just weeks after Hurricane Ian hit Fort Myers, our tent crusade went there. Now Hurricane Hilary is hitting Los Angeles just weeks before our tent is to go up at the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds.

Again, only God knows what this storm will do.

The first secular news reports of the revival at 312 Azusa Street in Los Angeles appeared on April 18, 1906 – on the very day of the San Francisco earthquake. 


Are there connections between weather and spiritual events?

Right now, Los Angeles is divided into two camps. There are those who believe this storm will amount to nothing. And there are those who are genuinely frightened. Again, only God knows what this storm will do.

There is one thing that is certain—everyone should be soul searching. The most dangerous condition is apathy.


Are there connections between weather and spiritual events?

Jesus said we should discern the signs of the times. Matthew 16:2-4, “He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’; and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times. A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.” And He left them and departed.”

Even if there is no major damage, something we all pray for, shouldn’t people ask themselves, ‘Is someone is trying to tell us something?’

And isn’t it interesting that this storm will hit on a Sunday morning when hundreds of thousands are expected to be in churches. What an opportunity for pastors!

This is why I believe that Los Angeles is now the Valley of Decision. There is something going on here that is deeper than any of us understand. We need to pray fervently that this will be an occasion of repentance.

Even if there is no major damage, something we all pray for, shouldn’t people ask themselves, ‘Is someone is trying to tell us something?’

Maybe God needs to correct our attitude toward this city. L.A. is not just corrupt politicians, violent gangs, drug dealers, and deranged celebrities. There are many helpless victims. There are Christian families here who cannot afford to escape and  they have no option for their children but Woke public schools.

Not only this, but there are also thousands who would get saved today if only someone would pray with them. And this storm is going to intensify that hunger for God.

If we had any lingering doubt about the timing of our crusade—this storm has wiped it out. We are here in the perfect will of God. If we had any hesitation about being bold—that is gone now. People are ready for the whole Truth.



And this storm is going to intensify that hunger for God.

I called Frank Saldana tonight and asked him if the army wanted to leave the city because of the storm. I got an emphatic, ‘NO’. They do not want to leave when there could be a sudden, massive, and deep openness to Jesus.

I see Los Angeles through the eyes of Jesus. And the burden is overwhelming.

Matthew 9:36-38, “When He saw the throngs, He was moved with pity and sympathy for them, because they were bewildered (harassed and distressed and dejected and helpless), like sheep without a shepherd.” Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest is indeed plentiful, but the laborers are few. So pray to the Lord of the harvest to force out and thrust laborers into His harvest’” (AMPC).


P.S. Please look at the special website we have build for Los Angeles and share it! Thank you! MM

    Souls come forth! In Jesus Christ Name!

    Please bring the tent revival to Seattle, Washington, and also the Eastside of Seattle, being Kirkland, Redmond, Bellevue area.

    They are building a 15 minute city on the Eastside in Kirkland. Many people need salvation and personally I believe it’s the epicenter of the fight for our freedom.

  6. Sherrie Palmer

    Jesus IS LORD! Praise The Lord!

    For some time now I personally have shared the sense that has impressed upon me that, we are in a time of Korah, coining it “The Great Divide” dawned on me.

    To the world I’m a nobody, so why should anyone take me seriously? But to My saviour, iam a somebody. He uses the “little things”. He does not despise the “little things”.

    I share this as a confirmation of that which Our Lord has impressed upon you Mario, and that which has “dawned” upon you.

    For some it might well be the last choice they will ever make. I pray in Jesus powerful name that he will send out his labourers to ready their hearts and souls,making a clear path for The King of Glory to enter, to make the ground of their hearts =the deep place of their being, ready for The Truth of His (Jesus) Word and The Word of His POWER. AMEN

    • Gloria Millet

      I’m thinking it’s just like Satan to bring something along to scare people to keep them away from the crusade!
      God is bigger than any storm and will stop it at the back door!

  7. Viviane Smith

    Praying for you from 🇨🇦 🍁

  8. Suzette van Rooyen

    Hi Mario. Greetings from South Africa. We pray that God will start preparing the hearts of the people for the harvest that is coming to Los Angeles. That in the words of Reinhardt Bonnke “Hell with be plundered and heaven will be populated.” God bless you and your upcoming crusade.

  16. Ann

    Be washed in pure, Godly love. Feel a peace that passes all understanding. Ft.Myers in the aftermath of the hurricane saw many miracles, LA in the wake of a hurricane will be an amazing outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

  17. Ron Rupp

    Azusa, JESUS Revolution, why not believe in 3, FATHER’S number and the explosion of a 3rd great awakening…no better place or state to start in…see yourself there for an extended time…for such a time as this

  18. Kathy Jo McWilliams

    Why are not Christians taking authority and power over the wether as Jesus has given us dominion over it? I find the name of the hurricane very ironic and the subtle innuendo that God is the cause and is going to hurt people because they will not bend to his will is out of character. The devil and those who knowingly or not that serve him is the cause.
    man has the technology and uses weather warfare all these horrible catastrophic events are man made who serve satan. God is calling his children to come unto me ye who are weary and heavy laden and if they say no then there is no refuge or high tower to protect them from the enemy. Is this more Calvinism that just blames God cause He made us this way so it’s all his fault? I sure hope not.

  19. Douglas Krause

    Looking forword to God’s Fire Works.

  20. Brenda

    Blessings of safety ,great health and strength

  22. Sue

    Amen to the message of being ready in LA no matter what comes….thank God for your boldness…it was a blessing when your ministry was in Fort Myers after Ian came through…

  23. Gerald Hibbard

    The very day the ELCA voted to ordain homosexuals, a sudden, unexpected storm arose and knocked the cross off the historic Lutheran urban church. Do weather anomalies coincide with spiritual events? God sends too man occurrences for us to deny them. Yet many joke about it and continue in rebellion. The wise observe and repent.

  24. Laurie Pestritto

    Praying for our entire nation!!
    This is the hour of decision indeed. Signs have been given in the weather and the leaders of the nations of the world.GOD awaken the church this is her greatest hour to fearlessly display JESUS

  25. Jeffrey Meyer

    I am praying for safety for those in southern California and praying for a harvest of souls and laborers to be sent to the harvest.

  26. Melanie Staples

    There is a hunger rising that we are seeing here in the Midwest. As they say God is on the move and it is exciting to see what is going to happen.

  32. Gary Bitikofer

    Mario, We are praying with you for LA. Keep up the good work God has called you to. We are sending a special financial gift to help as well. God Bless. Gary and Laura

  33. Karen Sorenson

    God is crowding people to Himself. The storm will cause people to turn to Himself as His mercy is being poured out on a dry and thirsty land. God, pour out your Spirit of repentance and conviction on the people of L.A. county!

  34. Laurel Stevens

    His Kingdom come, His will be done just as it is in heaven, in all of California! May California never be the same. May all the ungodly kingdoms in California come crashing down, and may all Californians know-that-they-know that YHWY and Yeshua and the Holy Spirit are the absolute truth and very real. May they repent and turn.

    • Mario Murillo

      Si! God bless!

  36. Donna

    Upon awakening this morning Matthew 16 was the very verses I was hearing in my spirit. Indeed many are not discerning the times, we are in the birthpangs now, in early Revelation as well. The signs are in the earth and heavens for all to see, awaken sleeping giant and serve the Lord Jesus Christ with all your heart, mind and soul. The time is very short. Many false prophets are prophesying falsely, we must know the Word of God or we will be deceived.

  37. Terry Haight

    We will donate and pray over this amazing movement of our God. Also share it far and wide. The signs are escalating and proving that time is running out. Thank you Mario for your warrior Spirit and obedience to Gods calling on your life. Godspeed friend. May God supply your every need.

  38. Ruth Stahl

    Son & family there right now til the middle of the week. Thank you for this blog our dear Mario. We trust the God of the universe to show Himself mighty & strong to save. Psalm 139

  39. Frances Hamilton

    Praying for LA and Mario and the team for a great harvest!!

  40. Sandra

    Praying for great revival and many souls saved and yes this will push people to seek GOD. Sometimes the enemy means it to stop the revival but GOD is greater than our enemy! Yes the signs of the end as we know it are all around us! It seems to be in all the books of the BIBLE, even the government and their evil for riches and sin ( even for a short life span that will reach i to eternity). Praying for your ministry and the volunteers and for the lost to be found! GOD loves them soo! Be blessed.

  41. Sandra wilson

    Praying for all those involved in the work of the Lord. God will work all things for the good. No weapon formed.aganist this work of God, will prosper, in the Name of Jesus. Amen
    Turn around coming.

  42. Wendy

    Praise be to God our Father thru our Lord Jesus Christ! The Lord is moving! We are praying and standing with you all. Remember Jesus is in your boat!

  43. Anthony

    Perhaps a Cleansing Judgement preceding the Repentant Revival?
    Just the thoughts that I received after reading your words Brother Mario.
    Peace and Blessings.

  44. Cynthia Bearse

    Thank you Mario Murillo! I truly appreciate receiving your emails and godly information. God bless you and your team as you continue your labors in the mission field of Los Angeles! Onward and upward in the mighty name of Jesus, our King of Kings and Lord of Lords! Bless and praise His holy name!

  45. Kris

    The verse came to mind: not in the wind, not in the earthquake nor fire

    1Ki 19:11  And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake: 
    1Ki 19:12  And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. 
    1Ki 19:13  And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah? 
    1Ki 19:14  And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away. 

  46. Linda Gerard

    This storm is coming all the way up thru Bakersfield to Fresno. Highway 99.❤️🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  47. Helen Levine

    I live just outside Boulder CO. I have volunteered but I haven’t a clue as where to stay in that area near the tent. Any ideas? Helen

    • Mario Murillo

      There are some reasonable rates right in Pomona. We used to recommend places but found that the travel websites do the best job.

  48. Ron witham

    He Lives

  49. Donna Otabachian Burns

    Don’t forget the rain in Batavia NY and even Colorado Springs CO resulting into double rainbows. God will get our attention.

  50. Sally Wolfe


  51. Diane

    We decree many, many will call upon the Name of the Lord and be saved in the impact of Hilary, and the tent crusade following up. That waves of revival will ride upon the waves Hilary has stirred. Moves of Almighty God are stirring throughout California, and fresh wind of Holy Spirit.

  52. Luther Williams

    Looking forward to see many saved in LA

  53. Cerise Barber

    I just want to declare to all of you that I was able to observe Mario and his wife at the hotel I stayed in during the crusade in Oregon a couple years ago. Friends told me Mario was friendly and kind to everyone in the elevators as they randomly met him – I didn’t get a chance to speak with him – I wish I had! When he left, Mario and his amazing warrior-wife were packing their things into a small compact car. Mario and his wife do NOT live a luxurious life; I consider Mario to be a TRUE MAN OF GOD – not swayed by money or personal power. Actually, he reminds me of John the Baptist, boldly warning people of the wrath to come. We are SO blessed to have a man of God during this hour. GO SEE MARIO – HE IS THE ‘REAL DEAL’!

  57. Renee Nunamaker

    Always enjoy Mario because he loves God and hears the voice of the Holy Spirit I am concerned for the safety of the homeless They have soul and all have a story God loves them so much I want to see a revival there

  58. ofelia claudio

    Go, Mario, go!!! In the POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT!!!!
    The Word of God is still true: the Gospel is the Power of God unto Salvation!
    Go, preach the Gospel, Mario. I am praying daily for more of you to proclaim the Gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit. But above all, for the Spirit to mightily move in the hearts and lives of the lost, open blind eyes, take the blinders off people’s eyes, unstop deaf ears, move with signs and wonders, convict people of SIN, RIGHTEOUSNESS and JUDGMENT; and bring them to repentance, bow before God and ask for forgiveness and mercy, and RECEIVE Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord. ONLY the Holy Spirit can make all these happen. And YOU, Mario, are His vessel; His mouthpiece! I pray for you always: for strength and good health; to remain humble and totally dependent on God as you minister the Gospel; for provisions for your ministry; for workers and volunteers; for sponsors among the rich and famous. May you catch the attention of our Hollywood celebrities like Ben Affleck and JLo – so blind! So in need of Jesus!

    By the way, please change the color of your font to black! I can hardly read what I am writing. Thank you!

  59. Roxanne Rice

    Not just the hurricane, but now earthquakes centered near Ojai. God is ramping up His efforts to get California’s attention. May all the harassed and helpless find their way to Him. Thank you, Mario, for your love and commitment to bringing the Lord’s salvation and deliverance to the hurting in the LA area

  60. Kathie FitzPatrick

    Hello Mario:

    The Pastor of our church in Yakima, WA. Dr. Sunny faced a similar situation as he was planning a big campaign and healing service in India about 3 months ago. Every time he goes over, thousands of new converts are harvested and the devil just does not lilke it. So extreme thunderstorms were forcast for the city and area where the crusade was to take place right at that time. God showed him and his team the three demonic spirits who were dominating the region. They began praying against them in the name of Jesus. Dr. Sunny and the team continued to prepare and go ahead with the crusade on those days and times. Angels appeared and held up a proptective canopy over the area so it was completely dry, but just outside the area. the thunderstorms raged. I pray will God will do a similar miracle for you! I believe He has it under control!

  61. Maria Sawvel

    In the gospel of Luke 8:22
    Jesus enters into a boat with his disciples and gives them instructions to go over the other side of the lake.

    As they are on their way, a storm arises to destroy them.
    The enemy knew they had a command, and the master and commander on board with them.
    The enemy is afraid of the army of God coming to the other side of the lake.
    Jesus has given a command to go to the other side, and no storm from hell can stop the plan of God for L.A.


    what is the meaning of woke? I heard you speak of it on Incounter today video?

    • Mario Murillo

      The left coined the usage. To them it means that they have awakened to the world of white supremacy, Transphobia, and patriarchal control. They believe America is evil and must be destroyed. Sadly, they are not woke but asleep.

  63. Gloria

    Praise God you are still going to be in Las Angeles in spite of what Satan has threatened to do weather wise!
    God will stop that storm before it comes near you all. God bless you all. I’m praying for your miracle crusade Mario.

  64. Emily Chen

    Dear Mario,

    There is something that has been troubling me, and I would really appreciate hearing your thoughts on this matter. You have mentioned before that Robin Bullock is a false prophet. However, I am curious as to why you still share your views on the same platform as him during the program? Have you changed your opinion of him?

    Thank you.

    • Mario Murillo

      Emily, I have not shared any platform with Robin since confirming that he is a false prophet. I have not been on Flashpoint since last October. There may be old videos out there that I have no control over. And if I discover that a platform I have been on is using him, I will not return.
