Are You a Wounded Healer?  

They have messed up and then gotten back up.  Trampled and left for dead, God restored them! They have no image to protect or ego to wound.  They are the most dangerous people that Satan will ever face!

It is clear that a new breed of weapon is about to emerge.  They are the wounded healers.  Who are these people?  Well, they do not have every hair in place or a clean record.  They are not the sanitized, prissy version of the Body of Christ.

They gained all new appetites in the furnace of affliction. They do not need the glory and they eschew titles and awards.  Their unswerving passion is to show compassion and take prisoners of love.  You cannot get them to fight over doctrine because they have been to the Cross.  They know the Blood that bought and then brought them back to life.

They are like Peter at Pentecost.  Only a soul handed another chance after denying the Lord three times will understand the inner fire of a wounded healer.  Who could write such a dangerous song as Amazing Grace but John Newton whose plaque says “Once an infidel and libertine A servant of slaves in Africa, Was, by the rich mercy of our Lord and Saviour JESUS CHRIST, restored, pardoned, and appointed to preach the Gospel which he had long laboured to destroy.

 You cannot find such zeal in religious do-gooders who never brave beyond ivied halls of respectability.  You will not find this flame in the bleachers where the cold souls sit and keep score but will never take the field.

Wounded healers do not boast of clean uniforms and of battles evaded, but of scars and gates of hell invaded.  They have no preaching pedigree but a song that sets the captive free.

We all know of the verse in Daniel 11:32 that says,” Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. “    What we tend to overlook is the verse that comes later that speaks of the wounded healers.  Daniel 11:35 says,” And some of those of understanding shall fall, to refine them, purify them, and make them white, until the time of the end; because it is still for the appointed time.

 This is a word for you my friend!  Your attack is not to destroy you but to refine you!  Your rejection and your abandonment are not meant for shame but for purity.   It does not matter how your garments appear to Pharisees when they are white before God.

The most incredible news is this… though religious voices have disqualified you; your destiny is yet for an appointed time!   The door that God holds open stays open!

Now let us look at another aspect of the Wounded Healer.  They are able to reach the masses that the regular church cannot.  Therefore, they are the perfect weapon for this moment in the end of all things. If only these special ops believers could see who they are and lose their need for the approval of cookie cutter Christians then they will become God’s tractor beam for lost souls.

Getting rid of the fear of man was the principal prize that so many of you gained in adversity.   So many of you wrote to me about the horrific events of your life and in the face of everything else, it became so real, how much God meant everything and the approval of your judges meant nothing.  Truly, you shouted, “If God is for us, who can be against us!”

Many wrote of the life of power that rose out of the ashes of despair. They felt equipped to do more than ever. They felt useful and lethal!! AMEN!!    This has to be the purest meaning of  2 Corinthians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

 Look around you and you will see how a new generation of leader is coming to the fore.  They do not wait for committee approval.  They rent a school auditorium in a bad area and just start preaching.  They preach raw sermons with an open heart and crowds come from everywhere.

 

Their frontline ministry is unlisted in the who’s who of the council of Churches but Jesus feels just fine showing up every time they meet! Look again and see others who carry “unlicensed weapons”.  They open their homes to youth.  They send out food, clothes and love in the most unconventional ways imaginable all with the smile of God.

Wounded healers may not wear denominational labels.  They do not schmooze in the right rooms but they carry the fight to where it matters the most.  They operate under direct orders of the King of Kings!

When you see one you will know them.  They will not judge you and no matter how far gone you feel they will see you through the lens of the Holy Spirit.  They will see you as you will look after your miracle has come.  You will feel welcome in their presence and you will look priceless in their eyes.  They do not view the sinner as a commodity but as kidnapped royalty.

Someone told me that a certain section of the church would never listen to me again.  I did the math, subtracted that group, and found that there were still another 240 million souls in the United States alone.  I fully intend to go after every one.  I also call them the Lazarus Generation.

 

What about you?  What will you do with your adversity, pain and shame?  All I can do is tell you what I did.  At the lowest point of my life, God was waiting for me to make a choice.  My choice is to minister wherever the door opens and preach from now time on as if each message is my last.

Deciding to go on when you feel nothing but agony is the greatest victory that you will ever win.   Not caring who gets the credit will rip the lid off your limits.

What are you and I waiting for?  We have loved ones to snatch back!  We have miracles to unleash on lost souls.   There is a whole world out there that has never even heard of church fights or legalistic regulations.

When Elijah told the widow to go and get as many containers as she could and God would fill them with oil, she realized that the condition of the cans, bottle, pails, or pots was not important.  God put oil in all of them.   Wounded healers are not perfect containers, they are simply full of oil and that is all that truly matters.

 

 

God knows what he is doing.  Saul of Tarsus was the wounded healer of all of the twelve disciples.  He felt unworthy to be a disciple and said so in no uncertain terms.  Yet, he attributed his surpassing labor for Christ to a sense that he was a broken vessel.

Jesus showed another power of the wounded healer in Luke 7:44- 47 Then He turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head.  You gave Me no kiss, but this woman has not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came in. You did not anoint My head with oil, but this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant oil. Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.

Therefore, to all you wounded healers I say you will not get credit from the religious peanut gallery so you will have to be content with accomplishing more than any of them will for Christ and loving the Lord more than they can ever imagine.

We are only days away from the Warrior’s Workshop in Houston

Something big is coming to Houston:  If you live anywhere near Houston today is the last day to register! Give me 3 hours and you will be revolutionized.  Why not you?  Become the weapon our nation needs now.

By Mario Murillo

 

Millions of Christians are done with watered-down Christianity.   To them, it has been a terrible waste of time and money.  They say that modifying the Gospel “not to offend” totally backfired.   By omitting the “offensive” parts they also removed its power to transform society and contributed to the present downfall of our nation.

They are intensely frustrated.   They see large churches filled with people who are systematically weakened—too weak to ever impact American culture.  They say we are losing the battle for America’s soul for stupid reasons.  They remember the legacy of true Christianity.  They know its power to change nations.

We have the best message humanity has ever heard—and the best book ever written.   We have the all-powerful Holy Spirit sent to aid us.   We have access to power, strategy and wisdom.  All of this and more was supposed to direct our operations.

They ask disturbing questions.  Why have we cast it aside?  Why have we accepted a cheap substitute?  Why would we rather let America die than admit our desperate need?

Warriors workshop tease

But they also see their own need.  A fast growing number of Jesus followers want training and power.  They want the skills of their spiritual ancestors.  They want the Jesus within them to overtake the culture around them.  They want to convert lost souls to Christ.  They want to see true signs and wonders.  They want to see victory in their everyday life.

God forged a new weapon at Mario Murillo Ministries—a weapon that answers the monumental, unspoken frustration in the heart of millions of believers.  It will yank believers out of the Christian Witness Protection Program and turn them into lions.

We call it the Warrior’s Workshop.  A workshop that makes a bold claim:  With just 3 skills we’ll revolutionize America.  You will get these skills at my Warrior’s workshop…a workshop that took me 40 years to build.

The best way I can describe it is this:  The object of military training is not to prepare men for war but to make them long for it.   The same is true of this workshop—it makes you yearn to reach out—heal the sick—and walk in total victory.

Give me just 3 hours and you will be revolutionized.   Why not you? You can become the effective weapon our nation needs now.  See you there!

God has called you to do something great but you do not have the resources to do it.

What

God has called you to do something great but you do not have the resources to do it.  What do you do?  Should you give up your passion and settle for an affordable vision?

This is the twilight zone.  You stand between the natural and the supernatural and you have to make a choice.  Don’t feel bad, very single vessel of God that was ever used of God has been here and has had to face the same agonizing question:  “Will I operate on human power or God’s power?”

In Genesis 16:2 we see the origin of most of the wars in history: “So Sarai said to Abram, ‘See now, the LORD has restrained me from bearing children. Please, go in to my maid; perhaps I shall obtain children by her.’ And Abram heeded the voice of Sarai.”  Because they saw no way for God to live up to His promise of a son, they took matters into their own hands.  What a disaster!

Yet, I witness this same sin being committed by many today who are trying to make God’s will happen.

Choosing to surrender to the supernatural is the hardest choice you will ever make especially at this time!  Demonic power has risen to a new level.  Americans have hardened their hearts to truth.  The church has stopped investing in souls.  This is truly a dark time for fresh vision.

youth revival

Where do I stand on the question of the supernatural?   For me there is no question. 

Let me put it this way…there is unprecedented hatred toward Christian movements outside the church and massive unbelief about new movements within the church.  Therefore, this is the perfect time for you to start a movement!

Like never before, God is calling people to live in the impossible.  The times demand it, the shortness of time requires it and the fact is…nothing else will get the job done now.

In other words, you never really had a choice. Miracle provision is no longer the wispy aspiration of spooky seers.  We are now in a situation where every day and in every way we must have miracles and we must know how to draw on invisible resources.

How do you get from where you are to a life of daily miracles?

1. Realize that you are already supernatural. Paul’s rebuke to the Galatians is clear: “Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?” –Galatians 3:3.

It is not a matter of starting a new life in the supernatural but retracing your steps to see at what point you began to take matters into your own hands.  You can’t help but make a painful discovery: You saw miracles, you saw God provide but when it was all over you reverted to human ways of living.

A good way to fix this is through worship.  Raise your heart and hands and say “Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! 2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: 3 Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, 4 Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercies, 5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”- Psalm 103:1-5

This is when it hits you: God has kept me through astonishing storms.  I am supernatural.

2. Dare to make decisions based on what God has said to you and not on human reasoning. From this point on, make decisions that will grate against your flesh and conventional rationale.

Proverbs 3:5-10 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. 7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. 8 It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones.

9 Honor the Lord with your possessions, And with the first fruits of all your increase; 10 So your barns will be filled with plenty, And your vats will overflow with new wine.”

3Endure the dark night of the soul. No supernatural provision ever came without a test. It always involves waiting.  Once you have hung your hopes on a miracle you must endure the gap time between promise and fulfillment.

They say that when God closes one door He opens another…but I say that it can be hell in the hallway!  Now you must remember who you are trusting.  Remember His character.  He is all powerful and utterly trustworthy.

What do you do in the meantime?  The best advice comes from Psalm 27:14 “Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!”

Abraham couldn’t wait, King Saul couldn’t wait and the results were devastating.  You can make a different choice and do it by seizing the promise that God will strengthen your heart as you wait.

The most important result of waiting for heaven’s provision is that you will build a track record of miracles that will weaken the enemy’s future attacks.

Finally, the world needs what God has put within you.  It needs it now. Miracle based believers are the weapon of choice in this hour.

When the Kingdom of God Overtakes Church

 We are on the cusp of a long overdue revolution both inside and outside the church.  An explosive truth is right under your nose; a truth that could fundamentally turn the course of the United States back to God.   I have no doubt that this is the very answer that we are desperately seeking.

When the Kingdom of God Overtakes Church.

By Mario Murillo

Experts say that America has lost her way because the church has lost its way.    How can they blame the church for America’s problems?   Many say it is because they helped reelect Barrack Obama.   They say reelection because, as the saying goes “fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.”

Do you, yes you Pastor, need to cry “shame on me for putting race over righteousness” since Obama told you what he was going to do to marriage before you voted?   Will history say that your vote helped open the floodgates for the greatest decline of morals, money, prestige and safety in American history?   You were supposed to protect the sheep.  Did you instead help the wolf by not only voting for him but influencing 6 million believers to violate their conscience?

firsrt amendment copy

This is an extreme example of what happens when “church” overtakes the Kingdom of God.   You wake up committed an agenda that violates your convictions.  This disaster is not limited to politics.  We see it now on every level.  Pastors cannot call sin, sin.  They dare not challenge their people to prayer.  They are imprisoned in a system where they cannot hear from God at all because they are wholly tuned to the whims of fickle members and prevailing social trends.

By now you’ve guessed that when I say “church” I do not mean the Church of Jesus Christ.  I am talking about the machine that man built not God.  Some are built by traditions, others are built by control freaks, and still others are the spawn of charts, graphs and market research.   They have one thing in common…they are working for God but not with Him.

What is even worse is when “church” becomes “church incorporated.”  Now the Pastor must tenaciously protect a far flung empire…even protecting it from God!  They are forced to keep Christians in a childish condition.  You cannot build an army against evil in a Christian country club.

So, even when “church” is wildly successful, Satan laughs because he understands that it is no threat to his destructive plan.

Things look pretty grim don’t they?   No in fact the opposite is the case.  We are on the cusp of a long overdue revolution both inside and outside the church.  An explosive truth is right under your nose; a truth that could fundamentally turn the course of the United States back to God.   I have no doubt that this is the very answer that we are desperately seeking.

So if you are ready…I mean ready to stop chasing fantasies about church growth, soul winning, revival, the supernatural and  the anointing, then you can unlock a truth.  Not just any truth but a truth that terrifies Satan more than any other.  It is about that moment when the WHEN THE KINGDOM OF GOD OVERTAKES CHURCH. lights over america

  1. That moment that you hear the knock. I noticed something consistent in the churches that are not “churches” but power centers that are driving the forces of darkness back in their communities: They all describe the day that their church was “overtaken.”

This came after they heard the knock and opened the door.   Revelations 3:15-20 clearly describes the American church.  Revelation 3: 15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.   Imagine that!  Jesus is knocking at the door and trying to get back in His own church.

If you are weary from trying to hold something together that you put together it is time to hear His knock and His voice and open the door and let the Kingdom of God overtake you.

  1. The Kingdom of God has its own agenda. Joshua 3: 13 And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, a Man stood opposite him with His sword drawn in His hand. And Joshua went to Him and said to Him, “Are You for us or for our adversaries?” 14 So He said, “No, but as Commander of the army of the Lord I have now come.”  And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, “What does my Lord say to His servant?”

Joshua was intensely involved in leading until he was overtaken by the agenda of heaven.

Long before you got to your city, God was working there.  Long after you are gone God will still be working there.   He loves the city more than you do.  He has all the wisdom to reach it.  You do not.

Whenever I hear a leader say “we are studying the issue” I know they are operating from churchiness and not the Kingdom.   Our plans need to be consumed.  Kingdom plans must be embraced.

big boy pants

The greatest lie is the one that says we cannot survive unless we become “relevant.”    The Kingdom of God is beyond relevant it is timeless.   No genius in a thousand years would have come up with the plan God had for taking Jericho.  Likewise the agenda of the Kingdom of God infinitely surpasses all that we rely upon.

Why I am so filled with hope?  Because I know that Jesus does not lie.  He promised that if you would hear the knock and open the door He Himself would enter and take over all aspects of church life.

  1. Sailing before the wind. Something else stuck out about those power centers that exchanged “church” for the Kingdom of God. They suddenly had unlimited resources for every project.  How does that work?!

Acts 16: 6 Now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia. 7 After they had come to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit did not permit them. 8 So passing by Mysia, they came down to Troas. 9 And a vision appeared to Paul in the night. A man of Macedonia stood and pleaded with him, saying, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” 10 Now after he had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go to Macedonia, concluding that the Lord had called us to preach the gospel to them.

11 Therefore, sailing from Troas, we ran a straight course to Samothrace, and the next day came to Neapolis.

This is the best example of an overtaking.   They tried and tried and finally stopped trying.   A vision appears.   And they sail from Samothrace to Neapolis in one Day?  This is a two day trip!   A sea wind filled their sails and cut their time in half.

Things are bad…no way around it.  However it is the sober realization of how bad that can fuel a divine desperation.   Some who read this need to let go of things that are your natural security.  Others need to return to a first love.    I do not know who has a more difficult challenge the pastor of a small church or the leader of a mega church.  One is struggling to survive and the other is diluted by false success.

July envelope art

When we drop all and open the door for the Kingdom of God to overtake our lives and our plans we immediately connect to unlimited power, wisdom, favor and resources.  We can answer anyone, we can implement plans with wisdom from beyond this world and we can connect to the others who have been overtaken by the Kingdom.    This is how national fires are set and the course of a culture is transformed.

 

What do you do when you know God has called you to do something great but you do not have the resources to do it.

Brace Yourself for the Santa Rosa Fire!

Brace yourself for the Santa Rosa fire!

Today is Saturday June 16, 2012 and I feel like one of those animals in the zoo howling the night before a massive earthquake.  Something deep within me is telling me that Santa Rosa will be one of the greatest, if not the greatest outpouring of God for souls and miracles we have ever seen.

I am making this bold declaration from 45 years of experience.  A weatherman can look at a satellite image and see what is coming.  They can measure wind speed and barometric pressure.  They can see massive lines of clouds and an angry cold front.  They know when something big is coming.  All the elements of  a supernatural perfect storm are here.

Let me list them for you.

1.  A holy fear is warning me to be ready.  I do not feel a danger of hyping this event but of missing a great visitation. I feel the warning of Jesus: Luke 19: 43 “For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, 44 and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”

We can and should know with awakening is about to happen. Why else would Jesus rebuke with tears a city that should have known?  In such a time as this, it is not arrogance to warn that a move of God is imminent.  Detecting impending awakening is not only possible is our solemn duty.

2. The people are suddenly willing and excited.   Psalm 110:3 “Your people shall be volunteers In the day of Your power.”   2 Chronicles 29: 36 “Hezekiah and all the people rejoiced at what God had brought about for his people, because it was done so quickly.”

Pastor Larry and Jan King have called the people to prayer and the excitement came effortlessly.  All at once, believers in the Santa Rosa area have dispensed with self-centered church and are praying, serving and reaching out!

3. California is in the grip of darkness, bankruptcy and despair.  Unemployment is much higher here than the liberal power structure will admit in a reelection year.  Drug use is also at its highest rate along with crime and suicide.  Secular humanism and atheism poison the people.  The moral vacuum is worse than ever.  It is in precisely these conditions that God intervenes. Psalm 119:126  “It is time for You to act, O Lord, For they have regarded Your law as void.”

4. Prophetic words are now being fulfilled.  Hundreds have already been saved all over Northern California.  Fires burn in Redding, Yuba City, Manteca, Martinez, Salinas, Clearlake and many other places.  A ring of fire seems to be forming around San Francisco.

Once again, I am haunted by the shocking prediction of an outpouring of the Holy Spirit that came from of all people, Bob Dylan!  This is it…every atom of my being tells me so!  Look out, the Santa Rosa Fire is ignited and it will be unstoppable.

If you or someone you love needs healing read this now!

Today my life will change forever.  How can I make such a wild statement?  Because today is our Living Proof healing rally at Dream House.  Today I know Jesus will make a personal appearance in Martinez to bring healing to many.

Teresa will tell her story:  For those who have not heard her testimony, her vertebrae were telescoping down; She had advanced diabetes, heart disease, and a dead liver.  Her last hope, a liver transplant became impossible in her weakened state.   Jesus healed her.  Everything is gone. She regained two inches of height, all vital organs are new and her blood is normal.

But why do I know my life will change today?  Because we have prayed, we have invited many with life threatening diseases and we have prepared an atmosphere of worship.  Now it is all in God’s hands.

Join us in Martinez today if there is any way possible!   However, I know that for many who read this, that is impossible.  But, I still want to make an urgent plea to you.  Please hear my heart!

I still believe you can be healed right where you are!  I already know the first thing I am going to say to the crowd today!  I will tell them that my job is to prepare them to receive a miracle.  That is our solemn task as ministers of Christ!

Then I will explain the work of the Holy Spirit.  Jesus gave the Holy Spirit the power and authority to overshadow people and give them miracles.  If God wants to heal then why aren’t there more miracles today?  The answer awaits those with honest hearts.  No one who approaches God with a double mind will hear anything! No one who comes humbly will be denied!

The Holy Spirit pines to release a blanket of healings but He is grieved by our unbelief.  The truth about healing is simple.  We stumble over it because it is profound. A child can grasp the wonder of what I am about to say but the proud intellectual will strain over the very first step. Let us blast forth the truth that we need so desperately now!

The theology that relegates the gifts of the Spirit to the apostolic age is the greatest lie the devil ever told.  Why would God ask the church to face the greatest explosion of false miracles, occult and demon activity in history with one hand tied behind her back?  This power-outage myth makes God seem foolish and cruel. If ever it made sense for miracles to appear it is now.

I have seen many try to work up a miracle and think that within themselves they could move God to heal.  If they could remove doubt and repeat verses over and over again, they surmised, God would heal. When you try to use human belief in the arena of the miraculous it becomes a cold mental exercise.  The faith that causes miracles is a grace of the heart that God imparts right before He heals.

Right now you can stop the madness that torments your mind.  Ask the Holy Spirit to carry you to Christ where you will receive Faith.  Do not over analyze, do not fret…rest!   Let Him do His work. Let Him carry you now.  In the face of a doctor’s fearful predictions, vicious pain and weakness… rest!  Do not choose  human belief that grits its teeth and wars in the natural for that which can only be won in the spirit and by the Spirit.

Let us sum up the matter.  It is time to do it God’s way. We are healed by Faith and no one described this faith better than Peter who said in Acts 3:16 “And his name through Faith in his name has made this man strong, whom you see and know: yes, the Faith which comes through him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.”  Here is the clear and undeniable picture of Christ as the giver of Faith, Faith that heals.

Miracles over Bakersfield

 

 

Monday night June 4, 2012,  A stunning tsunami of power the power of God sweeps through Higher Ground Church in Bakersfield. 

When Mario took the pulpit and before preaching he began to call lost souls to the front. This is a phenomenon that is occurring more and more.  One of the benefits of this is that the meeting becomes instant follow up for new converts.  Mario asked them come to Christ, and soon the front was filled with sincere hearts who prayed and wept their way into the Kingdom of God.

After the harvest was safely in the prayer room.  Mario preached an urgent word that helped explain why some gatherings lack power and others ignite with abundant miracles. 

The difference is defined by the crowd.  If it is a crowd filled with relatives of Jesus, the over familiarity and unbelief will blunt the miracles. 

He cited Mark 6: 4, 5 “But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.” 5 Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them. 6 And He marveled because of their unbelief.”

He then showed the amazing contrast between that what occurred later in the chapter in a remote area of Israel.  Mark 6: 54 “And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him, 55 ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was. 56 Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.”

If the audience is filled with worshippers of Jesus then the miracles will explode!  In His home town they knew Him so well that they did not know Him at all.  In the other place the people “recognized Him.”  One had a natural knowledge of Jesus and the others had revelation.

At the end of this message there was no question what choice this crowd in Bakersfield had made.  The expectancy and power rose mightily and then came healing after healing.  Entire sections of the building responded to the words of knowledge.  God took vengeance on a wide range of diseases too numerous to name in this report. 

Just when it seemed that the meeting would end, Mario Murillo points to a man in the back of the building and said, “You have had three heart attacks.”  His wife screamed, ‘it’s true!” The man quickly unbuttoned his shirt to reveal a large vertical scar from open heart surgery.  What followed this was nothing short of a complete overhaul of his body.  The word of knowledge began to include knees which were damaged and in terrible pain, at this he bolted to the aisle and began jumping up and down to demonstrate his healing.  Next came healing for his spine, ears, eyes, lungs and a host of other sicknesses. 

Then Mario turned to the wife and told her that she also had heart disease and then she screamed again and felt a divine jolt that would then envelope her neck, shoulders, spine and legs.

The grand finale came with Mario asking all of those who knew without a doubt that they were healed to stand and give God glory.  At the very least 100 people is glorious declaration of a miracle in their body!

In his own words…the testimony of the grandfather and the granddaughter from Santa Rosa

I am the Grandfather mentioned in the above recounting of the May 27th service at Living Word Family Church in Santa Rosa with Mario Murillo. As Living Word Family Church was not my home church and those at the service did not know of my situation, I was asked several times while leaving the service about my granddaughter’s and my situations, so I will take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about me and my family.

 I have been married 39 years, the father of 3 daughters, the grandfather of 4 granddaughters and 2 grandsons. My wife and I have had a very good life and I planned on retirement by the time I was 60 which is just a couple of years away. Then the Great Recession hit. I have virtually seen my business wiped out in the housing industry in the last 5 years.

 Additionally, in the last few years I have poured everything I have into saving my business, my home and everything I have accumulated over my lifetime. I have tried to do the right thing by putting everyone else first and sacrificing myself for my family and employees.

When it didn’t seem that it could get any worse, in the last 2 years, I lost my business partner and best friend to cancer, my accountant in the business to pneumonia, my favorite and last surviving uncle to heart failure and my mother, who has struggled with severe rheumatoid arthritis for over 50 years, to heart failure and pneumonia and a 39 year old nephew to a flu virus that attacked his pancreas. During all this time I didn’t tell anyone but I was having constant chest pains and was concerned that I was going to have a heart attack. I was taking cholesterol and high blood pressure medicine and I would sleep with my Bible clutched to my chest every night and constantly prayed for strength and wisdom to make it through another day.

When I didn’t think things could get any worse, 7 months ago, on a spur of the moment motorcycle ride, on a winding and narrow road near Glen Ellen, the edge of the roadway broke away and I plunged over a 30 foot cliff off Sonoma Mountain Road into the Sonoma Creek. I sustained a broken back, a fractured pelvis, a broken and dislocated hip, 8 broken ribs, a fractured elbow and trauma to my head and neck. After 3 hours of rescue efforts, several days in intensive care, emergency surgery in which I was given a 50/50 chance of surviving the operation, and almost a month in the hospital, I was left in constant pain and unable to work or even to fully care for myself.
Kaylee is my 5 year old granddaughter that is in the above recounting of Sunday nights service. Kaylee has always called me “Poppy” while I am “Papa” to the others. She is smart, precocious, tenacious, and doesn’t give up on anything and more than any of the other family members thought that her Poppy walked on water. Kaylee mysteriously developed debilitating pain and swelling of her ankles and knees 2 years ago. She couldn’t walk up stairs, run, ride a bicycle, swing on the monkey bars or keep up with the other kids of her age. Her mother and father have had continuous tests, including frequent visits to the Children’s Hospital in San Francisco, with the diagnosis always pointing to juvenile arthritis, Lyme disease, or any number of autoimmune diseases. At times Kaylee could not walk at all and had to be carried wherever she went.

 Even on good days, Kaylee fought to keep up with the other kids and really had a hard time that her 3 year old sister could physically do more than she could. Last Thursday, Kaylee stood in front of the entire school, the parents and grandparents and guests of over three hundred attendees and boldly announced the Kindergarten program at the Windsor Christian School. Kaylee’s teacher told her mother, my daughter, that Kaylee really loves Jesus and constantly pronounces her faith and is an inspiration to her and her class.

Last Saturday, the day before Sunday’s service, after watching something on television that must have had something to do with “wishes”, she announced to her mother that if she had one wish, she wished that she didn’t have arthritis anymore.
During the service, when Mario Murillo asked the audience to place their hand on someone’s shoulder to pray for them. Kaylee would place her hand on my shoulder and close her eyes. My wife and I had our hands on Kaylee’s knees. We were all praying for a miracle. I prayed before the service for God to heal Kaylee and for Him to give her my portion of any healing. When Mario Murillo appeared near closing the service, my wife said “Let’s take Kaylee up to the front”, I agreed but before I could act Mario, walking back to the front of the church suddenly turned around, pointed to me and asked me to stand. He said God had something for me, I said, “No, my Granddaughter… “then my voice broke down.

The rest is in Mario’s recounting of the events above. After the prayer and the announcement from Mario that we were healed, while I wept, Kaylee pumped her little fist in the air. The next day Kaylee was running and playing with the other kids and I was carrying my Grandchildren around and pushing them on the swing. By the grace of God, I am proclaiming that Kaylee and I are healed and ask for your continued prayers for Kaylee and your prayers and blessings for Living Word Family Church and Mario Murillo Ministries.

Praise God!

Last night, a testimony of healing rocked the Bay Area.

 

 

 

Last night, a testimony of healing rocked the Bay Aream.  People felt the power of God out on the street even before the meeting began.  My wife’s opening prayer literally ignited the power of God in worship.  This was the largest crowd ever at Dream House.  Scores of people had never been to Dream House before.  They came to hear an amazing story and to see miracles.  They were not disappointed. 

Tee stood and her husband Jim before the people and began to list all of her diseases.  By the time she was finished you knew that essentially she raised from the dead.   Her statistics alone are mind boggling.

-For 43 years she endured pain. 

-She lost her gall bladder, appendix, and her liver was so toxic it was poisoning the other vital organs of her body.

– A car wreck exacerbated her scoliosis leaving her two inches shorter from disks that made her spine telescope down on itself.

-On top of all of this, she had diabetes, heart disease, and terminal liver disease-a liver so toxic that it was poisoning the vital organs around it.  She could not get a liver transplant because she was too diseased to survive surgery.

-She had  6 months left to live at the time of her healing.

Then she was healed!  She described the moment that the power of God enveloped her.  “I do not remember anything that Mario said.  I was overtaken by the power of God.  My husband and others told me later that Mario had listed every single disease that was in my body.”

For the first time in 43 years she had no pain.  She went to her doctor and the tests verified an unspeakable miracle.  No diabetes, heart disease, scoliosis, and the most baffling thing to doctors she said was that “they saw a new liver in the X-rays!”  And finally, she testified, “I am now two inches taller!”

You would think that the next thing to do would be to pray for the sick since faith was high in the room.  Instead, the Holy Spirit reminded me of the words of Jesus, “that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins, I say to the crippled man rise up and walk.” 

I told the audience, “you now have proof that Jesus was no mere man.  You now know that the message of the Gospel is true.  Come to Jesus and be saved!”   Soon, lost souls streamed to the front of the Dream House to be saved. 

Once the new converts were safely being cared for in our prayer room.  The miracles began.  Joyce was healed.  We now refer to her as Rejoyce because she was overhauled.  The Holy Spirit revealed that she was being eaten up with pain from every joint in her body.  Warm oil coursed into her and she took off around the room trying out her new arms, legs and joints.  This touched off a storm of healings that would soon wipe out heart disease, diabetes, asthma, and a litany of other disorders.

How do you end a night like this?  We all stood and sang Victory: Put foot on the head of the devil!”  That is indeed what God did through us on this historic night at the Dream House!
