Today was a very full day. It began as Mario spoke in the morning session, then later he was joined by Todd to film Firepower Live, and rounded out the day with the final night of the crusade.
It was a day of great teaching and a great move of God. The Lord once again showed up in a very powerful way. Actually I think it would be more accurate to say God and His power were already there, but we finally turned our attention to Him and allowed Him to move and touch people.
Tonight began once again with Catherine Mullins and her band absolutely bringing heaven.
If you weren’t able to attend on any night of the crusade, I would highly recommend that you watch the recordings of the live streams, including this morning’s session and Firepower on the Mario Murillo Ministries Facebook page.
Tonight began once again with Catherine Mullins and her band absolutely bringing heaven. I think they get better and more on fire each time. They are a God-ordained match to the work taking place in these crusades.
As Mario prepared to preach, Catherine got the crowd fired up with an old classic, Look What the Lord Has Done. The whole place was on their feet dancing, rejoicing, and praising God. It was the perfect transition into the final night’s message.
When Mario arrived, the people just kept praising and shouting, so he had them sing it one more time. It was such a fun time, celebrating in the presence of God.
Finally Mario had the people take their seats and he began his message.
He said we live in an hour that has invented new ways of making people feel unimportant, disposable, and replaceable. He talked about the Pharisees and how they were bad, how they became wealthy at the expense of the people, and that they had made a covenant with evil, with Herod, and with the Romans.
He said our nation has been taken over by interests that are evil and wrong. That we are being lied to, and that the devil has sent false prophets into the church to distract us from what we need to be doing.
He said that what is happening to our nation is like a football game where the referees have been paid off. Yes, they are cheating, but if you score enough points it doesn’t matter.
In politics, yes, there is corruption and deceit and cheating, but he said the Church could have made the difference, because we had the edge. The Church had 60 million voters who claimed to be born again and those numbers could have overridden any form of cheating or deception. He said it is imperative that every believer register and then vote!
He then quoted something Tucker Carlson said, “The undeniably big topics, the ones that will define our future, get virtually no discussion at all. War, civil liberties, emerging science, demographic change, corporate power, natural resources. When was the last time you heard a legitimate debate about any of these issues?
“This moment is too inherently ridiculous to continue, and so it won’t.”
Debates like that are not permitted in American media. Both political parties and their donors have reached consensus on what benefits them, and they actively collude to shut down any conversation about it. Our current orthodoxies won’t last. They’re brain dead. Nobody actually believes them. Hardly anyone’s life is improved by them.
This moment is too inherently ridiculous to continue, and so it won’t. The people in charge know this, that’s why they’re hysterical and aggressive. They’re afraid. They’ve given up persuasion [and are] resorting to force. But it won’t work. When honest people say what’s true calmly and without embarrassment, they become powerful. At the same time, the liars who’ve been trying to silence them shrink. They become weaker. That’s the iron law of the universe: True things prevail.”
Mario said there has never been a more dangerous time in the history of the world to be a non-Christian.
Mario then quoted John 4:35, “Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!”
Then he said, the real danger is not that pastor, nor is it Washington D.C. It is not even the media. The danger is when you and I refuse to admit what is actually going on and what we must do now.
He told how the Bible describes the tribes of Israel and what each of their weapons was. When it describes the sons of Issachar, their weapon is not a chariot, a spear, a sling, a sword, or a bow and arrow. It says their weapon was that they were men who understood the times and knew what Israel should do. (1 Chron. 12:32).
He said that everyone is going to have to choose sides.
Mario said there has never been a more dangerous time in the history of the world to be a non-Christian. Because while right now the problems are natural, very soon they are going to turn supernatural. But as believers, we have power against it in the name of Jesus.
He said you need to be told we are living in an hour where what false prophets and seeker-friendly churches are doing needs to be called out.
He said there should never be a sermon without the Blood and the Cross, and the delivering power of God, just as there should never be a Christian event without an altar call.
Mario said we are ashamed of the Gospel for all the wrong reasons, and no one should call Christianity stupid. Nothing the world has to offer is better at handling race relations, restoring sanity, fixing a marriage, taking suicide out of a young person, or setting a person free, than the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
He said that everyone is going to have to choose sides. He talked about how some people believe they will be able to withstand torture, and also believe they do not have a breaking point, but it’s not true—everyone has one.
And the breaking point will be that society is going to demand perversion and allegiance to their view. Our ability to fight it off is based on being filled with the Holy Spirit. Only that power will allow you to withstand the pressure that is coming.
He told the people every human system of wisdom is a pitiful substitute for the power of Christ.
Mario concluded this time by again asking those who wanted this power in their life to raise their hands, then to stand up, and finally to come forward.
Once again the altar was flooded with people recognizing they are not able to withstand this world on their own, and realizing that they need a Savior to rescue them. And realizing that they need Jesus, the real Jesus. It was so beautiful and so glorious!
He prayed over them, then had them meet with our volunteers for some additional one on one ministry before returning to their seats.
Mario next shared with the people that God said the churches that stood and sponsored this crusade are going to experience fire in their services. This will include healings which will be reported.
He then turned toward one side of the Tent and called out three women who were suffering from a mysterious illness in their abdomen, intestines, and digestive tract. He asked for all three of them to step out into the aisle.
He started with the first lady. He said the thing in the intestines was only one part of what was going on in her body. And that the devil tried to convince her to take her life rather than suffer, but she had refused. He had her touch her forehead, where vicious pain from headaches was causing nausea, dizziness, and temporary blindness. These symptoms were being healed as well as her spine. And he revealed she has been under an exploratory procedure looking for possible cancer, but that they would find nothing.
He then went to the next lady and told her by the Holy Spirit that her stomach condition was based on nerves, from a trauma brought on by an assault, but now she was being healed.
Finally he turned to the last woman and said her healing was not just for her but for a lot of people who depend on her. She was being healed of something wrong in her stomach which had existed for many years, but is now gone. He said this condition has been affecting her energy, that her fatigue was a result of the condition, but it was being healed.
He then asked for every man in the Tent with a heart condition to stand on their feet. After a few moments about thirty men stood up in every area of the Tent. He had the people who were near them lay hands on and pray for each of them. As they were all being healed, Mario led everyone in a prayer of healing for each of these men.
I was standing near the platform and suddenly felt a wave of power sweep over me, and just moments later, a man sprinted across the front of the Tent, then returned and ran back once again. He stopped in the middle of the altar and began dancing before the Lord, shouting and praising God! A moment later, another man who had been healed sprinted across the area of the Tent in front of the platform.
Immediately, people were on their feet, with their hands raised, praising God, praying in tongues, shouting, and dancing. People were being touched and healed all over the Tent.
Mario had the worship team return to the stage and closed out the night singing, Look What the Lord Has Done.
It was an incredible night! If you missed it you really should watch the videos of the services. And you should plan to be at our next crusade which will take place in Bakersfield, CA.
Be sure to keep an eye on MarioMurillo.org as information about where we will be next becomes available. Plan to attend, sign up to volunteer—I can promise you—
your life will never be the same!
All glory to God!
