Mario Murillo says the minority communities in America are beginning to wake up, and that's a double whammy for Satan and for those who belong to him.
In fact, Murillo says, it's the Latino community that is going to lead a wave of revival in America that has never been seen before in the U.S.
"There is a major spiritual awakening going on," Murillo told Charisma News' John Matarazzo during an interview at the recent Fire and Glory Conference in Ocala, Florida. ... There has become such a desperation now. ... In fact, I'm going to predict right here, right now, that the wave of revival in the Latin churches in America is going to end up being the most forceful spiritual awakening that we have. It will transcend anything else."
And what makes Murillo believe that?
"It's because there is a natural sense of family values in the Latin culture," he says. "The fact that they are here, however wrong it was that they got here, what the devil meant for evil, God is going to use to His advantage. Their Catholicism prewires them to believe in miracles.
"So, we do attend crusades in the Latin community. Wheelchairs are empty, blind eyes are opened, cancers vanish. People are healed because of their pre-wired faith in miracles."
A Pew Research Center study in 2019 revealed that Hispanics in America are no longer majority-Catholic. In 2009, 57% of Hispanics called themselves Catholic; but 10 years later, that number had dropped to 47%.
The problem with that is that those describing themselves as atheist, agnostic or "nothing in particular" increased from 16% to 23%.
Murillo believes those numbers, however, are changing as well, because Hispanics are flocking to churches looking to see how mightily God can and will move in their lives.
And not only is the Latino community awakening, Murillo says the Black community is arising and heeding to the truth as well. He calls it unification reverse.
"You see that because now there is such a desperation," Murillo said. "You know, when leaders in the black community, for example, found out about Margaret Sanger, and the true intention of Planned Parenthood and the racist roots, they began waking up to that. They also saw that black conservatives were being called racist. That's how detached from logic, the thinking is. So, minorities are waking up."
The Perils of Social Media
One thing that is a danger to this unification movement and the Spirit-filled movement today, Murillo says, is social media. It can have an impact that could lead many millions astray.
"It's the greatest danger because it's empowered unqualified people to have a following like never before," Murillo says. "And so, we have fake prophets, fake apostles, fake teachers. And it couldn't come at a worse time because there is a segment of the church that seems to be right which says, 'oh, we shouldn't judge that or let's be sweet and not point that out.'
"But that's not biblical. I had a man tell me that we shouldn't correct false doctrine and just trust the Holy Spirit that He will work it out. Well, that makes no sense because 60% of the New Testament was written in reaction to and correcting false doctrine. Evidently, that is an important issue to God. The danger is the audience itself.
"And, we read a verse in the Bible backwards—it's 2 Timothy 4, that says, the day will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own lusts will heap to themselves teachers having itching ears. You'll notice that whenever that verse is preached on that the individual will say, this is a warning against false teachers. It's absolutely the opposite. It's a warning against the false audience."
