P.S. SOME IMPORTANT THINGS I REALLY NEED TO SAY

You heard I received a miracle.  Now there are some important things I need to say.  Please take a moment.  These are things that are really heavy on my heart to say to you.  I don’t want you to get the wrong idea.

You would think that after how much I suffered I would be overjoyed with my healing.  Instead it broke me.  Even in the depths of my agony I prayed and said “Jesus, there are so many in greater need of miracles than I am.  Please touch them Lord Jesus.”

When He chose to heal me, the goodness and mercy I experienced shook me to my core. I actually felt the fear of the Lord.  I felt an urgency to make certain things very clear to whoever knew about my miracle.

Healings are not trophies, they are testimonies.  When God gives you a miracle you come under an obligation to give God all the glory and to share it with others to encourage their faith to receive also.

2 Chronicles 32: 25 says, “But Hezekiah did not repay according to the favor shown him, for his heart was lifted up; therefore wrath was looming over him and over Judah and Jerusalem.”  Hezekiah received a great miracle.  But he treated his healing like it was a trophy.

I was not healed because thousands were praying for me but because people prayed in faith.  You may feel discouraged thinking, “I don’t have that many people praying for me.”

If you need a miracle, the promise of Matthew 18:19 is yours!  “If any two of you shall agree as touching anything it will be done.”  Right now I want everyone who wrote me with their prayer requests to be healed.  I want you to know that Jesus wants to heal you and that releasing your faith will never go unrewarded.

I am grateful for my healing but I am aware of so many who are suffering far worse health challenges than I did.  It truly breaks my heart and it is important to me to encourage them.

After God heals you the enemy will try to steal your miracle.  Luke 8:11 tells us, “Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 12 Those by the wayside are the ones who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts…”

He comes to steal as soon as you are healed.

John 5:14 says, “Afterward Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, “See, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you.”

Satan will tell you, you weren’t really healed.  Old symptoms will try to come back.  The miracle is not the end of your fight…it is the beginning.  Think about it: when a tumor leaves, when pain vanishes and strength returns we have the proof of our healing.  To let Satan rob you after such a clear miracle is sin.

You must take your stand and confess your healing against the thief of miracles.  Symptoms will subside and you will feel the glow of your miracle once again.

Don’t forget the lessons of your affliction:  God didn’t make you sick but He did use it to force you to grow.  Look at 2 Corinthians 16: 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.”

Here’s a great quote about this: “Every wise workman takes his tools away from the work from time to time that they may be ground and sharpened; so does the only-wise Jehovah take his ministers oftentimes away into darkness and loneliness and trouble, that he may sharpen and prepare them for harder work in his service.” -Robert Murray M’Cheyne

I made a list of new demands that the Holy Spirit put on me now that He had my undivided attention.  I shall obey them with unswerving devotion.  I don’t want to take this class again.

Please pray about all I have said and may God give you wisdom.

IN A STRANGE AND WONDERFUL WAY, I HAVE RECEIVED A MIRACLE

My staff told me we got a call from a doctor in the Midwest, who said I should call him. I called him back. He said he had treated thousands of patients.  He had been a medical doctor and then he added chiropractic training.  He became proficient dealing with muscle/skeletal/ neurological afflictions.  So far so good, but then he said this:
He explained that I might have trouble believing what he was about to tell me.  He said he prays and asks God the Father to reveal the root cause of many conditions.
Here I was on the opposite side of a miracle.  I was my turn to do what I have asked so many in crusades to do:  to open my heart to the moving of the Holy Spirit. But how could I trust a voice over the phone.  I asked God for a sign.
He told me I had two conditions at one time and that was why it was confusing.  First, he focused on my excruciating hip pain.  He told me I had jammed my joint—that I didn’t need a chiropractor but to have my son grab my ankle and give it 3 sharp pulls.  I tried to be respectful.
Next he said, a vertebra near the base of my spine had a slight protrusion and that was the root of my back pain.  My MRI showed this was true.  He told me I would feel much better in my hip, and back but I still had to rest for another 3 weeks to restore my nerve.
Then he said I see a scar from an injury when you were young.  There it was!  I asked God to reveal to this man about what my MRI revealed.  I had broken a bone in my spine from a football injury but I never knew it until the MRI.  My wife and I were rejoicing.  He gave a few more words and then we said goodbye.
I asked my son to do what the doctor ordered.  Michael was scared to do it.  “What if I injure you Dad?”  I told him to believe.  Three swift jerks and my hip was stretched.
No difference.  But I could tell it did not injure me.
In the middle of the night, the voice of the Lord woke me up.  This was the second time this had happened during my ordeal.  The first was when he ordered me to write a blog confessing that God would turn everything around and rescue me.
Well anyway, this time the Lord said read Psalm 31:19 “Oh, how great is your goodness to those who publicly declare that you will rescue them. For you have stored up great blessings for those who trust and reverence you.”  The Father told me that because in the depths of my agony I publicly confessed He would rescue me that I was blessed.”  That was it and I went to sleep
The next morning, I woke up the way I had for weeks: terrified to move.  Only this time, I could move.  Do I dare try to walk with no one there to help me?  I did and I could walk!  The crippling pain had become a dull ache.  Even though I could walk something told me to take it gradually.  Each day I have grown stronger.  I have a ways to go before I can stand in a pulpit…Now I am watching the unfolding of a total miracle.  All glory to God.
This miracle was the result of the prayers of many.  I know that I will leave many out but I must mention fellow warriors Bob and Debbie Searle, Sonny and Linda Lara, Connie Carpenter, Tony and Shirley Scott and the church on Strayer, Sandy Querin, Billye Brim, Tony and Brenda Krukow and all the folks at prayer mountain—and, especially my wife who endured so much in this battle  And who is that doctor?  I will tell you when I have permission.  Again, I say all glory to Jesus Christ.

TWO MAJOR MINISTERS IN BRITAIN SHAME AMERICAN CHRISTIANS

When two major ministers in Britain shamed American believers who support Trump,  I felt  I needed to respond for two very big reasons.    The first is to lovingly dismiss their arguments and the second is to bolster the convictions of Christians who do support our president.

Let’s begin with what they said.  The Archbishop of Canterbury says he doesn’t understand why so many Christians in the US support President Donald Trump.

Justin Welby told ITV’s Peston on Sunday programme that he “really genuinely” can’t comprehend why Christian fundamentalists have provided such a strong base for Trump.

Paul Bayes, the bishop of Liverpool, said that some American religious leaders were colluding with a divisive system which “marginalises the poor”, contradicting the teachings of the Bible.

Bayes told the Guardian: “Some of the things that have been said by religious leaders seem to collude with a system that marginalises the poor, a system which builds walls instead of bridges, a system which says people on the margins of society should be excluded, a system which says we’re not welcoming people any more into our country.

“Whenever people say those kinds of things, they need to be able to justify that they’re saying those things as Christians, and I do not believe it’s justifiable.”

There’s a lot here and I will try to answer each as best I can.

The first is to the Archbishop:  You don’t understand, and I am glad you admit it.  I assume you also did not understand Barack Obama.  He wanted marriage laws that violated the Word of God.  He vehemently supported late term abortion.  He was more hostile to Scripture by far than any previous president.

Obama’s policies persecuted churches.  Under Obama, the church was gagged and intimidated.  Many regulations were put in place that targeted Christian businesses. Our children could be suspended from school for wearing clothing with Christian messages.  His unbridled spending took us to a 20 trillion-dollar debt.  His foreign policy moved the world into perilous chaos.  Why didn’t you question the Christians who supported him?

Why did we provide a wide base for Trump?  Because the only alternative was Hillary Clinton.  She vowed to intensify the policies of Obama.  She referred to herself as Obama’s third term.

To vote for her meant the church would suffer more.  He, on the other hand, ran on a promise to get the government off the back of the Body of Christ.  He has indeed kept his promise.

Maybe you don’t understand our election system. We didn’t have 12 choices we had only two.  What would you have had us do?  Abstain?  That is the same as a vote for Hillary. We do not regret supporting Donald Trump because the alternative is too terrible to imagine.

To Bishop Paul Bayes I simply ask…why did you put your statements out to a rag that is left wing and atheistic?  The Guardian?  Are you serious?  But I digress.  Let us answer your charges.

We are not colluding with a system that marginalizes the poor.  That system is the one that Democrats put in place.  Since there is an ocean between you and Detroit I will be gentle.

After 50 years and trillions of dollars, the inner cities under liberal domination look like they have been bombed.  The dole they receive has destroyed their incentive to work. The cradle to grave nanny state has been a breathtaking failure.

We Christians who back Trump believe that a strong economy with policies that reward personal responsibility gives the poor something urgent: The dignity of a pay check.  That is why unemployment among blacks is currently the lowest in decades.

On immigration you are also mistaken.  We have been the most welcoming nation in the world—far more than Britain.  That is how we ended up with 18 million illegal immigrants.  We spend 84 billion dollars a year on them.

And yes, they do bring in drugs and in fact some of them have murdered Americans.  People love to say that Trump called all illegal immigrants rapists and murderers. He did not.  He did say some of them are.

Did you know that 25% of the women who come in here illegally are raped by fellow illegals?  Do you really believe that none of them are bringing in drugs?  Are you really confused about why a nation with our crisis would want to secure their border?

Mexico is not trying to help us.  Corruption and hypocrisy have forced our hand.  They encourage their people to come here illegally.  They have zero control over the drug trade.  They resist taking back felons we deport.  What do you do with a nation that seems to be an ally that will not help you?

For an answer Bishop, look to Winston Churchill.  He begged France not to let their battleships fall into the hands of the Nazis.  When they wouldn’t on July 3, 1940 at the Battle of Mers-el-Kébir,  he destroyed French battleships to protect England.

We are building a wall for two reasons:  They work, and Mexico refuses to help us.  You also believe walls work.  That’s why you have one around Buckingham Palace.

Of course we want to welcome those who truly want to contribute to our nation.  What we want is a sane policy not the corrupt system that Democrats have in place that is simply a way to recruit new voters for their party.

Is it Christian for us to protect our borders?  Why don’t you ask Jesus Christ?  “But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into.” -Matthew 24:43

GOD IS PURIFYING THE AMERICAN PULPIT

When the healing properties of sleep is most precious to me, I am awakened by the Lord to pen a warning.  Search what I have written over the years.  You will see that I rarely, if ever, write this way.  Something has happened in the heavens.

A grace period has ended for you false and carnal preachers.  You will be purified or replaced.  The time when God winked at your compromise is over.  You thought God didn’t see: Psalm 73: 11 And they say, “How does God know? And is there knowledge
in the Most High?”

Worse yet, you thought because He delayed your discipline, He gave you license for drunkenness and materialism.

Public confession of sin is coming.  Malachi 3:3 says, “He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, And purge them as gold and silver, That they may offer to the Lord An offering in righteousness.” Not everyone who is disciplined will make the cut.

Look for tragic downfalls—you who have fattened yourselves at the expense of the sheep and left them weak and unprotected.  God told you to resist the wicked winds of political change.  Instead, you hid behind a lame excuse that you didn’t want to be political.

The wicked devices of the left that wrecked marriage, and continue to kill the unborn, are but a few of the evils it was your duty to oppose.  Instead, you self-righteously said you were above politics.

Meanwhile, those political policies oppressed the sheep of God. Godless laws got them fired for being Christian.  You said nothing. Political correctness got their children suspended from school. You looked the other way.   Godless laws bankrupted Bakers and other Christian small businesses.  You were silent.

In your silence, you are taking other people down with you.   You are damaging your audience by only saying what they want to hear. You have not led them forward; you have not removed them danger.  Worse yet, when you finally speak out it is misguided.  Man of

You were silent when Obama worked his destruction.  But now you oppose a president who is doing more for the sheep of God than you. Man of God: Tell the truth.

 

Out a dead sleep God said “it is time to fulfill my promise” and He showed me Jeremiah 3:15 “And I will give you shepherds according to My heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.”

Satan is not impressed with your billion-dollar empire. He mocks it.  It has no power where it matters.  R.A. Torrey said, “The Devil is perfectly willing that the church should multiply its organizations and its deftly contrived machinery for the conquest of the world for Christ, if it will only give up praying…The Devil is not afraid of machinery; he is only afraid of God. And machinery without prayer is machinery without God.”

Then God told me how He has come to despise the word “Activate.”  He is rebuking the signs and wonders crowd who cheapening the gifts of the Spirit by promising instant activation of gifts.  God is opposed to the message that promises gifts without a relationship to the Heart of the Father.

He will only grant gifts to those who surrender to intimacy with Christ.  It is not an overnight deal—it is a grueling journey, it is the furnace of affliction, and a season of preparation.

Instantism is bringing the prophetic movement down.  Repent or find your movement in the museum of failed revivals.  The enterprise of doling out daily words of prophecy grieves God.  He deems it a horoscope reading.  Worst of all it, has driven the sheep away from the Bible.  All of this prophesying has not led to national awakening.  Consider:

“I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran. I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.  But if they had stood in My counsel, And had caused My people to hear My words, Then they would have turned them from their evil way And from the evil of their doings.” -Jeremiah 23: 21,22

We are the cusp of a golden era of soul winning.  God sees the harvest is ripe.  Beware of God most, when He sees the lost searching for Him.  That is when He cleans house. That is when He says, I am going to save the lost—you can let me purify you for service, or get out of my way.”

WHAT WASHINGTON WILL DO SIGNALS A REBIRTH OF CHRISTIAN FAITH

Many of the most pivotal moments in history were not appreciated at the time.  We are at such a moment and we do not even realize it.  Something is taking place that seems routine.  It is actually monumental—an earthquake is shifting the spirit in Washington.

WHAT WASHINGTON WILL DO SIGNALS A REBIRTH OF CHRISTIAN FAITH

By Mario Murillo

Billy Graham will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda.  Mario, that is as it should be.  Billy Graham is a legendary American.  Of course he is, but are you forgetting what Washington is?
Barack Obama would never allow this tribute to Billy Graham.  Neither would Hillary Clinton—who ran on the progressive, anti-church platform of Obama.
Washington moved so far to the left under Obama that we are still weeding out the deep state sleeper cells in many government agencies—especially the FBI.  Under Obama, their hubris was as much against the church as it was Trump. (See this link to my blog on how Obama was the most biblically hostile president ever.)   https://wp.me/p1vrzp-3DQ
Did you know 9 presidents in a row welcomed Billy Graham to the White House?  Obama did not.
Obama made a token visit to Montreat N.C to visit Billy Graham.  But, when Graham endorsed Mitt Romney, Obama ordered the IRS to suspend the nonprofit status of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
The swamp people in D.C. are seething and boiling today.  Their dream of a Godless America has taken a massive hit.  A man of God will be honored in a highly visible way.  A spirit has been broken.  The unwritten code that Christian faith is not welcome in Washington has been shattered.

Where are the voices that stopped Manger scenes and insisted we have a holiday tree?  Where are the gas bags who screamed for separation of church and state, and sued every time they found an iota of faith expressed in a government setting?  Silenced and properly rebuked, they mutter in the crevices of Washington today.
Like everything else about Billy Graham’s life the timing of his death is divine.  He held out until some key things happened.  One of the most important was the election of Donald Trump.
Trump loved Billy Graham.  Our president is not a perfect man but he is under the influence of the Holy Spirit, and that influence grows because of the prayers of millions of believers.  Trump championed the cause of our faith in government.
Everything within me says this is just the beginning.  As Billy Graham lies in state, words of faith once banned, will be freely spoken—not only in by formal speakers but by the rank and file in restaurants, schools, and every hall of power.  The subject of the Gospel of Jesus Christ—Billy Graham’s passion—will be recounted by more in D.C. than if He was doing a crusade at the Washington Redskins football stadium.
The nation will stop and honor a man of God…but I believe, a rebirth of Christian faith in America will start.  Glory to God in the highest!

 

SATANIC ATTACKS THE BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS

Out of my ordeal, comes a defiant message of victory.  Many are asking me how I am doing.  The answer is, even though I am in pain—I still can’t walk very well—doctors have no idea what’s wrong with my hip, spine, and leg…I am excited.

Why am I so excited?  Why am I praising God out loud?  I am not glorifying suffering or sickness.  I believe we have total victory over them.  I know I am receiving my healing through the prayers of many.  It’s just that I have discovered something about my affliction that excites me:  Satanic attacks are the breakfast of champions.

Satan is paying me the highest compliment. Martin Luther said, “Satan only attacks those he fears.”  Many of today’s teachings have it backwards.  They think they are being left alone because they have great authority.  Actually, they are being ignored because they do not pose a threat.

I remember in high school football the one thing you didn’t want was a clean uniform.  If there’s no mud on you, it’s because you are on the bench.  The same is true in spiritual warfare.  If no one is trying to lay a glove on you—you are not dangerous to darkness.

Early in my ordeal I did not understand.  Like so many who bask in nights of miracles and the outpouring of God, I was not prepared to have it come to a screeching halt.   I had nights of shocking pain—that no medication could touch.  There was no position that didn’t hurt. Sleeping was a joke.  At times my soul was so vexed, I wondered if I would lose my mind.

Now I am overtaken by an even deeper revelation of spiritual warfare—a revelation of the breakfast of champions.  This can totally revolutionize the way you fight and endure an affliction like mine. It begins with a simple admission:

God did not do this to you, the enemy did.  But, God will capitalize on it, in a way, that will make the devil wish he had never touched you.  Here are the two devastating outcomes—for the devil—after he attacks you.

  1. This suffering in your soul will transform you into a healing gift for others.  Listen to Paul: “What a wonderful God we have—he is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the source of every mercy, and the one who so wonderfully comforts and strengthens us in our hardships and trials. And why does he do this? So that when others are troubled, needing our sympathy and encouragement, we can pass on to them this same help and comfort God has given us.”  -2 Corinthians 1: 3-4

What God puts in your soul to comfort you during this trial becomes a gift for others.  You emerge from this trial a more advanced healer—a more diverse and useful vessel.

Every minute I lay here, I feel my compassion for others deepen, and my resolve to see miracles intensify.  I can chafe against the process, or I can have let patience have its perfect work. But there is a second benefit to come out of these attacks.

2. The weapon that was supposed to kill you, will end up a weapon in your hand.  Goliath charged David with a sword—not just any sword—but a legendary sword.  For Goliath that weapon had one goal—to kill David.  The last thing the giant ever imagined was being beheaded by his own sword, and to have his prize possession become David’s sword.

Haman was hanged on the gallows he built for righteous Mordecai.  Daniel watched his enemies thrown to the very lions they meant for Daniel.  Likewise, the fiery furnace incinerated those who had the 3 Hebrew boys thrown in it first.

Lucifer put Paul in prison in order to stop him. He did not stop Paul in fact, he soon realized it was his worst mistake ever.  Paul said in Philippians 1:12 “I want you to know that the things which happened to me have fallen out rather to the furtherance of the Gospel.”  That is the greatest understatement of the last 2,000 years.

Every time Satan attacked Paul with imprisonment, Paul wrote another letter.  Until the collection of his writings became more than half of the New Testament.  How massive of a mistake was that for the devil?

So beloved brother and sister in Christ I am excited and full of peace.  Not until heaven will I understand why I am enduring this great test. I know I am being healed.  But I also know something much greater—Satan will regret the day he attacked you and me.

Paul must have written this verse over breakfast: “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”-Romans 8:18

 

 

 

A NEW PRAYER ALERT FOR MARIO MURILLO

This is a new prayer alert.  We are asking prayer for Mario Murillo.  We are facing a fresh challenge.  As we have reported to you, he was improving, but something happened two days ago.
The pain reappeared—not by any accident, but mysteriously—even though Mario followed a strict regimen required for recovery.  The cause is unknown to doctors but not to God.  That is why we are appealing to all of the friends of this ministry for fervent prayer.  We need a miracle.
We will never give glory to the enemy but we do recognize when he attacks.  Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 2: 18: “We wanted to come to you—I, Paul, tried over and over again—and Satan stopped us.”
This is a vicious attack to stop soul winning.  In this dark time for our nation, Satan is fully aware of the historic doors to win the lost that have opened to Mario Murillo Ministries.  Just as our voice was about to heard, he attacked.
We are asking for you to pray specifically.  Mario is keen on finding the root cause of his condition so that he can prevent it in the future.  If it is to be through a doctor—pray, we find the right doctor.  We need a physician who is not focused on injections and surgery but on a wider understanding of the spine and hip.
Ask for an instantaneous healing so that God may be glorified in the immediate restoration of our momentum to win the lost.
We need special prayer for Mechelle Murillo.  The constant care of her husband can be exhausting.  We do not need the evil one to create anymore health issues.  Pray for her strength.  Pray protection over her.  Pray she is able to rest.
Ministries that preach the Gospel with signs and wonders are often hesitant to report illness.  That has never been Mario’s style.  He believes in total transparency.  If you can trust us to tell you the truth about attacks, you can also trust us when we tell you about miracles.  After all, we are in a war and the Bible says, “we have this treasure in earthen vessels.”
Mario’s spirit is not broken.  In fact, this attack is building a fire in his soul to take even greater vengeance on the devil by winning even more souls and seeing more miracles of healing.
Your prayers are far more urgent than you know.  Paul said, “For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ.” –    Philippians 1:19.   Through your prayers knitted with ours, we shall see a miracle.  Thank you for praying and for sharing this alert with others.  God bless you!  -MMM
