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!
