Fruition of David Wilkerson Prophecy Is Shaking the Church
Mario Murillo says David Wilkerson saw it coming. The scope and sensationalism that has engulfed our churches for years—something that has left the church empty and dry—will no longer be tolerated by God. True children of God want more, and a separation, Murillo says, is coming our way very soon for a "massive number of Christians" who will experience this strange miracle.
"The Holy Spirit is separating them. He has selected them for special grace and power to do mighty acts at the edge of history," Murillo says. "They will be uniquely equipped to face the sophisticated evil of our time. But it all begins by making peace with the Holy Spirit and restoring His rightful place in our hearts and in the church.
"Take a close look at the book of Acts and you will see the disarming down-to-earth way they related to the Holy Spirit. While they revered Him deeply, they had a sense of his nearness and His involvement in their day-to-day operation. They behaved as if He was close by and they could almost see Him. Most of all, they anticipated His instructions."
Repentance Led Rick Warren to Support Women's Authority in Church
Three years ago, former Saddleback Church pastor and founder Rick Warren found himself in the unenviable position of repenting for a stance concerning the church he had held for many, many years.
Since founding Saddleback Church in California in 1980, Warren held the widespread belief that women should not be allowed to have authority within the body of Christ and to preach the gospel. It's something he simply took for granted.
But in 2020, when the COVID pandemic hit, Warren, who retired from his position at Saddleback last year, began "reading every book I could find on the Great Commission and on church history."
40 Gang Members Crash Revival With Mario Murillo
A palpable presence of God covered Mario Murillo's, Bakersfield tent revival as gang members poured in from the streets riddled with fentanyl overdoses. As soon as their feet hit the tent grounds they knew they were walking through in desperate need of one thing, Jesus.
In a Charisma News interview, Murillo describes an unprecedented unity among the local churches as the national yearning for God continues to grow in the country.
Bakersfield is located right off the Kern River, just north of Los Angeles, California. "There is no doubt the laws of science are being overruled," Murillo says. Life-long physical body injuries are being healed along with emotional trauma.
New Biblical Film Labeled a Cross Between 'The Chosen' and 'The Passion of the Christ'
When early viewers refer to an upcoming Christian film as "The Passion of the Christ" meets "The Chosen," there's little doubt the movie will be a good one.
But there is another reason why "His Only Son," an Angel Studios film that releases on March 31st just in time for Resurrection Sunday, is expected to make an impact on our culture.
The movie, which bills itself as a "biblically accurate" and authentic film based on the story of Abraham and Isaac, and one that took five years in to make, is breaking records for its successful crowdfunding model, Fox News Digital has reported.
Demons Manifest, Deliverance Arrives at Locke's Movie Premiere
Throughout the Gospels there are firsthand accounts of Jesus casting out demons and taking authority over them.
Following in His footsteps, the disciples continued this practice of delivering the afflicted from spiritual torment that had physical manifestations.
So why have so many modern-day Christians abandoned the practice of deliverance ministry?
