Fire and Glory over Los Angeles.
What happened last night March 4th 2013
The night began with souls coming to Jesus. No sermon was preached just raw conviction that made souls come to Jesus. Dozens made the ultimate decision and filed into the prayer room with the shouts of joy roaring from the audience.
Now Mario asked to turn to Mark 10 and see the power of crying out to God. Blind Bartimaeus got even louder when they warned him to stop crying out to Jesus! Mario’s point is that churches are now so formal that we fear crying out to God for our miracle. He went on to show how our cry effects God deeply. He said, “Jacob would not let go when he wrestled with God even though it meant death!”
Then it happened! A silent but desperate cry went up from the heart of a lady in the back. She embodies everything that is happening in this outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Ontario. For months she has volunteered at this church sometimes 30 hours a week. She volunteers despite an indescribable pain throughout her body. Image a migraine that is not a migraine… but a beast that takes away your eyesight when it hits! However, this is only the beginning of the devastation of Lupus. She lived knowing that her body had declared war on itself! Her limbs were targets of torture and degeneration.
She had her regular job and then volunteered at church and still found time to come to these meetings every night. Like Tabitha in the Bible, God remembered her good words. She sat near the back and center of the sanctuary. Then her moment arrived:
Mario looked all the way in the back and asked her to stand. By now, you would think that the audience would be used to these things but it hit us all as if it were the very first time. The word of healing began, “you have excruciating pain all throughout your body. Place your hand on your head and the power of Jesus will heal you. You are also being healed in your hands, arms legs, spine, muscles and nerves.” As surely as those words were spoken she felt the power that no one can describe. He body obeyed the creative healing authority of Jesus. We all felt as if we were living out a page from the Bible. Lupus’ symptoms vanished! She was made whole in the name of Jesus.
What else happened last night? Do you have a lifetime to hear about it? A woman near the front abandoned her walker and marched across the front. We laughed when Mario reminded us that this was so appropriate since it was March 4th and sure enough she marched forth!
Mario strode to the other side of the building and told a man “please stand and be healed of heart disease, diabetes and neuropathy.” The man broke into open sobs as it was blazingly clear that this was all true.
The Holy Spirit swirled and flowed like a ribbon of healing racing everywhere in the hall. Miracle upon miracle came to all who reached out in faith.
Right now at 5PM Tuesday March 5, 2013, people are heading to Echoes of Faith. Already the crowd is forming but we have plenty of room for everyone in this large sanctuary. If you are near Southern California, do not think that it is too late or that your case is impossible. Bring those you love for these last two nights that begin at 7PM.
To the rest of our partners across the world please pray for this great miracle to expand and influence this region for Christ.
