I HAVE WAITED ALL OF MY LIFE TO SAY THIS TO YOU
By Mario Murillo
I have waited all of my life to tell you this
All of my life, it has come so close I could taste it. Endless times, all of the elements were there…but at a key moment, something would sabotage it. Some disqualifying factor would always appear at the finish line—some man-made obstacle would jump up—just as the miracle was about to be born.
Just in case it ever did happen, I had the words ready; I knew exactly what I would say if I ever got the chance to say it; I have never been able to say it.
Now I can say it.
What is it that I can finally say? I am going to hold off for a moment. (This is after all an earth-shaking moment for me.)
Maybe, this announcement should be coming from the people themselves. What I would give to have you interview them directly.
Mechelle and I are sitting in a restaurant when a man and his wife walk up to tell us what the meetings in Branson mean to them “My husband had quintuple bypass surgery. You asked me to put my hand over his heart.” The man chimes in, “I knew that I was healed!”
You get the feeling that there is nowhere you can go in Branson without hearing a testimony of a miracle.
Friday night’s meeting brought even more stunning miracles. A woman stood transfixed as the Holy Spirit revealed details about her condition and how and when she became ill. Her arms and legs were virtually useless but she begins waving her arms and running. No one in the room can deny what they just saw.
So far, everything I have said has happened in past Living Proof Crusades…but what I am about to tell you are the reasons for this announcement.
At this hour, the army of the Lord in Branson scours the land to bring in the loved ones who need proof of Jesus and healing.
Night after night, the Glory has intensified until it became an abiding presence. One of our leading ladies comes and just sits for hours in the building. Friday, she came 3 hours early, just to sit and pray. Her vision was severely damaged by cataracts and glaucoma.
Remember…there is no meeting in progress, she is just sitting waiting. She said that a shaft of light hit her and then she realized she had perfect vision.
Across the city, people are sensing that God’s Spirit is being poured out in an extraordinary measure…the kicker is that they don’t know each other, and some, had no idea these meetings were even happening.
When John Burton wrote his article about Branson for Charisma Magazine he said: “I am quite undone by the recent meetings led by Mario Murillo in Branson, Missouri. Of course, I’ve been wrecked by the power of God, the intense messages and the incredible number of healings and salvations. Last night’s meeting was probably the most powerful I’ve been to in many years. It was indescribable.”
I am not the cause of this amazing event in Branson. It has no human origin–it has no explanation other than God.
Revival is a word that has been bandied about. Revival is probably no longer even a viable term because it has been abused beyond recognition. Revival is best described in Acts 19: 20 “So the word of the Lord [concerning eternal salvation through faith in Christ] was growing greatly and prevailing.” This is what is happening in Branson.
The spirit of prayer has gripped the people. Conviction rocks sinners at the altar. Pastors are surrendering their differences and taking their place in the army. Truth, unbridled truth—I mean calling out the government and national sin truth—is being declared from the pulpit.
The buzz of electric, crackling expectancy fills the room making miracles inevitable. The will of God is being done on Earth as it is in Heaven.
The agenda is surrendered to Christ. Every iota of the meeting is commandeered by the Holy Spirit.
A signal has supernaturally gone out in all directions summoning leaders to Branson. They have come from Seattle without a schedule to return. Pastors from Illinois are coming at the behest of the Holy Spirit. Just a moment ago, we found out pastors from New York feel a strong urging of the Spirit to come to Branson.
It would not surprise me if many of you who are reading now should be suddenly gripped by the call to come. The River of Life that is flowing will soon be raging.
I have waited all of my life to say this: All of the elements of a moral awakening—an awakening that can spread from Branson to reform America—are in this miraculous phenomenon in Branson. True revival–it is finally here.
