The Mario Murillo Crusade That Almost Didn’t Happen, But God

by | Feb 2, 2022 | Supernatural

The city wanted grass. Think of it! A simple thing like grass could have stopped this mighty outreach.

I love the field we have rented for our crusade. I also love the fact that we rented the adjacent 10 acres, just to park cars and RVs. It is a perfect setting for soulwinning and healing miracles. But it almost did not happen because the city said we needed to plant grass over the entire field!

So, we planted it. But we faced a crisis. Where do we get enough water to make this grass grow in time for the tent? California is in a terrible drought. We certainly would not be able to truck in the daily amounts of water that were needed. Farmers here will tell you—water is the one thing you can’t get in the Central Valley.

Then came the miracle rains and snow that you may have read about in the news. “See if I will not open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing you will not have room to contain…” As you can see in the picture—we got our grass!

But we were not out of the woods yet. We were also told that special ADA ramps for the handicapped will be required. (Our deepest desire is for those in wheelchairs to use the ramps to get into the tent, but not to need them after they leave! Hallelujah!)

Time was now our enemy. These are special ramps, and with the supply chain madness that is going on right now, we would never have them in time. Then the Lord sent us another miracle! Bishop Steve Perea, who leads Christian Worship Center in Manteca, California, just happened to have the most beautiful ADA ramps. They are far more adequate than what was required by the city. We offered to buy them, but Bishop Perea donated them!

We got our permit! That is the big news. We got our permit!

The grass and the ramps are only two of many miracles we are experiencing right now. Our soldiers from Inner City Action report an openness to Jesus on the streets that we have not seen anywhere else. They are not waiting for the tent meetings to see healings. They are on a righteous rampage to touch addicts, gang members and the homeless.

The churches in the Hanford area are enjoying unity and joy. Pastors are bold to command their congregations to seize the opportunity to join in this outreach. Believers are experiencing boldness to share their faith in the midst of a pandemic.

All of this adds up to the one thing we wanted most—expectancy! An electrifying expectation is gripping the body of Christ. The focus is not on Mario Murillo. These people have fixed their gaze on the Lord Jesus Christ. They are bringing people and operating in faith: believing that Jesus will be in the tent saving and healing. And He will!!

These verses best describe what is happening at this moment on Highway 99:

Mark 6:54-56 (NKJV), “And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him, ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was. Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.”

Now check out our commercial that is inviting hundreds of thousands to the tent. Please come and bring someone if at all possible! Everyone please PRAY!

Mario Murillo rose from poverty in the Mission District of San Francisco. After being revolutionized by Christ, he felt a call to the University of California at Berkeley, where he shared his faith and saw healings result from his preaching. His international ministry was launched after a four-day conference in San Jose, California, extended for six months with a total attendance of nearly 250,000 people. Since then, his voice has been heard by millions around the world, bringing a message that zeroes in on the hurts of society. He presents Christ clearly and intelligently, openly declaring the power of Jesus to totally transform a life.
