Why Are Mario Murillo’s Tent Meetings So Powerful?

by | Apr 13, 2023 | End Times, Evangelism, Faith, Prophetic & Revival, Revival, Spirit-Led Living

I asked God a simple question. That’s how it all started.

Why are the tent meetings so effective? What started this explosive combination of fire, deliverance, miracles and mass conversions?

Millions now know what happens inside our tent, but only God gets the glory! No man could have done this. God is the only reason this is happening.

We feel compassion for those who think you just buy a tent and put it up. We have tried to warn any who would listen. There is way, way more to it than that.

But when leaders press me for an explanation, my answer is always the same. I asked God a simple question. That’s how it all started. I asked God, “What will it take to save America?”

Anyone can ask that question, but very few want to know the answer. And those who seek insincerely, will only get dead silence. James 1:6-7, “But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord…”

The Holy Spirit knows if you are going to obey. He will not frustrate the unwilling with answers.

So, the answer came. And I was not disobedient. It required an inner revolution—a revolution that is still ongoing. Here is the answer that came, step by step:

Pray and Obey

Under strict orders, we were told never to go out except by the direct command of God. His voice would command us where, when and how we go. We are powerless until He speaks.

Highway 99 in California was our first assignment. Because we went where we were told—heaven stood behind our efforts. We invaded hellholes of despair in the authority of the name of Jesus. No force of Satan could withstand our efforts because they were born from prayer and obedience.

We never seek the best opportunity. We only want the mind of God.

Today, that assignment is Colorado Springs. Today begins our march toward the greatest tent crusade in our history. Remember that I told you this: Colorado Springs will be the greatest harvest and flood of souls yet.

Build a Volunteer Army

The fieriest meeting you will ever attend—the most exiting gathering you will ever experience—is the Saturday night when I preach to our volunteer army. They are the best people in the world.

Why are they so excited? First of all, it is because the anointing does not just remain on the stage or even in the tent. When these warriors go out they see unsaved people healed, then saved, on the streets and in the neighborhoods.

Those who volunteer have testimonies that will burn within them for the rest of their lives. They also find a tribe of lifelong friends. And after a crusade they bring fire back to their churches.

Go and Get the Lost

We always want as many lost souls as possible to attend our meetings. We go out and get them. We are certain that Americans are hungry for Christ.

We eschew all of the lies and false images that the media constantly broadcasts about Americans. We believe what Jesus said, “Do you think the work of harvesting will not begin until the summer ends four months from now? Look around you! Vast fields of human souls are ripening all around us and are ready now for reaping” (John 4:35).

That vast harvest is always confirmed in our tent. It is the reason we always need more volunteers.

Bring Pastors and Leaders Together for a Brunch

This is one of our most effective weapons. Bringing leaders and pastors together who love their city increases the power.

We do not come as outsiders boasting of some solution. We recognize and honor those who labor and sacrifice for a city. We come to fit in with the ongoing work of God in their community. The fire of God always falls during these brunches.

Our brunch in Colorado Springs will be on Saturday morning May 20th at 11 A.M. It will be hosted at Church For All Nations.

Rightly Divide the Word of Truth for Signs and Wonders

Murillo book TurnThe last thing on my mind when I stand up to preach in the tent is eloquence. The first thing is always the Word of God. The Holy Spirit has made it painfully clear to me that no miracles come unless the truth is spoken in love.

Human wisdom, wordsmithing and trying to be cute with a modern audience is a terrible waste of time. No one will be saved or delivered. The devil does not respect glittering verbiage, but he flees from the sword of the Spirit!

Always build a sermon by the wisdom and infusion of the Holy Spirit. What may seem ineffective to you will be the words that break chains, instill faith and bring conviction to the modern mind.

In Colorado Springs, I will preach four new messages. The crusade will be four nights, July 16-19th at 6:30 P.M. on the campus of Church For All Nations.

What will it take to save America? A deep and wide repentance in the church. We must repent of human-driven efforts. We must lay it all down at the foot of the cross. Our urgent need is to start doing everything God’s way.

How great is the harvest? It is so great that we have been forced to buy a new tent every 18 months. And each new tent is twice the size of the one before. In the Colorado Springs Crusade, we will be using our new Big Top Tent that seats 5,200 people. It will literally tower over Colorado Springs.
