THE PRICE OF GOD’S MIRACLE WORKING POWER

by | Dec 26, 2021 | Christianity Today, Prayer and Healing | 33 comments

America faces the greatest threat she has ever faced. Now it is you who are the vessels of God who must die to self in order to get out of God’s way and confront this threat head on. Not with words alone but with undeniable signs and wonders so notable as to invoke both unbridled joy and the fear of the Lord. In view of the state of our nation, nothing less will do.
You want to see the lame walk—the blind see—and the deaf hear?  You want your days of powerless ministry to end?  You want to unlock the how and why of the way God grants power to do mighty signs and wonders?  Do you want to know why so many have asked but so few have received the gift of healing and working of miracles?
It is time to peel back misconceptions.  It is time to be brutally honest.   We have been able to create mind-bending technological breakthroughs and we can now do in an instant what previously took decades…but we will never find a shortcut to supernatural power.
I am preparing for miracle rallies in the tent in Hanford, California. I already know God’s fiery passion to work miracles in that tent. I am equally aware of the fervent hope so many have who are bringing loved ones with life-threatening diseases to be healed. It is a lot to take in. The burden of all this drove me to review the truths that have been my best friend in so many past events when I relied on nothing other than the healing power and presence of Jesus.

Read on, and learn the price of God’s miracle working power.

The Holy Spirit’s work never changes.  His process of taking raw material, such as you and I, to make a living breathing conduit for His power has never changed.  In 2,000 years, the process has not been shortened or compromised one iota.
If you seek glamour and riches, skip this message.  If you are dazzled by the people you have seen being used powerfully to perform miracles, save us both time—do not seek this power—you have no heart for it.
A young man, enthralled by the power he witnessed, ran up to Smith Wigglesworth and begged for the gift.  Smith said, “You don’t want it.  Before God is through with you, you will feel as if a thousand switch-trains have run over you.”
Before God uses you greatly, He will wound you deeply.
You still yearn to be used?  You still want power—real power, and not the fluff of so many hyper-emotional meetings?  Then proceed, with caution.
The reason for our lack of power and miracles is plain—we are just not willing to pay the price.  If you are willing, the Holy Spirit will take you through the process to power.  Here then is the price of God’s miracle working power:

It’s all about self-emptying.

Listen to E. M. Bounds: “The preacher must throw himself−with all the abandon of a perfect, self-emptying faith and a self-consuming zeal−into His work for the salvation of men.  The men who take hold of and shape a generation for God must be hearty, heroic, compassionate, and fearless martyrs.”
A.W. Tozer said they would “…serve God and mankind from motives too high to be understood by the rank and file of religious retainers who today shuttle in and out of the sanctuary.  They will make no decisions out of fear, take no course out of a desire to please, accept no service for financial considerations, perform no religious act out of mere custom; nor will they allow themselves to be influenced by the love of publicity or the desire for reputation.”
Oral Roberts despaired of life itself in his hunger to understand miracles.  He was pastoring, without power, when he went to Kansas City to hear William Branham.  That encounter with the supernatural was his line in the sand.  He went into fasting and prayer.  Oral went into the prayer closet and there, he died to himself, completely.

In her desperation to understand the supernatural, Kathryn Kuhlman visited several healing meetings.  She often left disgusted and broken-hearted. Her tears and prayers reached critical mass and she made a holy vow to conduct meetings that were full of power and dignity. And she never looked back. Kathryn traced the moment of her power: she said, “I died.”  From that moment on, there was no Kathryn Kuhlman, only an utterly devoted shell.
Compassion: Oral Roberts, T.L. Osborn, Charles S. Price, and Aimee Semple McPherson all reported being overcome by compassion for the sick. Their level of caring rose to divine heights−they agonized for the lost, the sick, and the dying.
Matthew 14:14: “And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.”  Such compassion cannot be faked.  It emanates from Christ Himself.
Hatred for sickness and evil: Few understand how the anointing is a product of hatred. Hebrews 1:9 says: “You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”
Alexander Dowie saw miracles happen after a plague struck his church and killed 40 of his members in Sydney, Australia.  An inner rage transformed him until he called out to God with a pure heart, and was rewarded with so much power that it left his entire congregation free of plague.
John G. Lake saw his wife die, and it unlocked a fury against evil that swept the world with healing.

Power always has a purpose.

Luke 4:17: “And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; 19 to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”
The most powerful part of those verses is this phrase: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because…”  Your “because” ruins you for all other plans, purposes, and goals.  You must surrender to the one thing you are assigned to do.  You must be able to list your purpose, articulate it simply and clearly, and execute it with extreme focus.
Every vessel of God has one life message.  It is an outstanding theme of their life and a distillation of all that the Holy Spirit has ever had them say.  T. L. Osborn’s life reached millions, and his life said something astonishing−and what it said is something that he never compromised or changed.
God is giving you power to do one special work.  You cannot deviate from that divine intention. It will be a true work of God.
Wait. Acts 1:4 “And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father.”  This is the key! Abraham could not wait, and Ishmael was the result.  King Saul could not wait, and it cost him his kingdom.  Esau could not wait, and it cost him his birthright.
How long will you have to wait?  AS LONG AS IT TAKES.  All the powers of hell will challenge your decision to wait.  Satan has too much to lose if true healing power begins to flow.
It will not come easily. Your flesh will scream for release from your vigil. But, wait for true miracle power.  Do not settle for the life you had before this quest.  Your patience will be rewarded beyond measure.  The Holy Spirit will come in power!

PLEASE PRAY! THIS WILL BE OUR LARGEST MIRACLE SOUL WINNING TENT CRUSADE EVER! mm

    As a 6-year-old child I was prayed for by Charles Price because my eyes were crossed and was instantly healed (I’m now 83), but God placed a hunger within me at that time that made me wish for His touch so that I could pray for others and see them healed. Through the years we visited many meetings, including those of A.A. Allen, Oral Roberts, William Branham, Benny Hinn, and many more. Also a young man, Mario Murrillo, years later, spoke healing over carpal tunnel syndrome as he was just walking by me on his way to the platform. When I was little I would always wiggle in so I could see how they prayed and what happened. Now, after many, many prophetic words, and many years, it seems the time has come and all I can say at this time is that it hurts. I spend hours crying and telling God “if you’re going to heal people who are just walking through the glory around me, then reveal to me what I must do.” Prayers please!

      My prayer also for going into 2022 is that God will send His Presence and Glory with me wherever I am so that others will see and feel it and be drawn to Him. And now I will add that if they need healing of anything, emotional or physical or spiritual, that they will receive it as they walk through His Presence and Glory. I have been thinking a lot about this lately and believe my thoughts are being stirred by God. It will be interesting to see what He does with it all. The important thing is that He be glorified and do the work He wants to do for each individual.

    Thank You Mario 🙏🏻 I believe God is calling me to more, to serve, to heal the sick, raise the dead, lay hands on the blind and deaf and infirm and watch as they recover. I am waiting on God, I am surrendered. I hope to see you soon Mario so that you can lay your hands on me and impart the gifts of Gods Holy Spirit. I have read your book Vessel’s of Fire and Glory on Audible 4 times. I can’t stop thinking about being used by God to see people saved, healed and delivered and Jesus Glorified. I was destined for this time, I have an assignment in Jesus great purpose for humanity. I know this. TC Gotcher 419

    MARIO, this brings Great understanding to me that I never understood before. I do realize that our suffering is not in vain, if it brings Great COMPASSION for the suffering of others—and our Deep Desire to see them Healed, saved, and delivered from whatever has them bound.

    I have been praying for several months for GOD to anoint my daughter and me (if it is His will) that we might be used of GOD in the healing ministry. She has suffered greatly since 1996. (I have not been without my own.) She is so compassionate toward others who are suffering. She has—like my mother been a Prayer Warrior for decades. She has suffered greatly and been at the point of death so many times. As I write this now, she is at her doctor. I have prayed all night. All of this suffering can not have been in vain. I Believe she has a Great call on her life for the healing ministry. She is 55 years old.

    I am praying now as I wait to hear from her this afternoon.

    This blog gave me a confirmation of what I heard the Holy Spirit tell me this morning. “Today I penetrated your heart through your spirit on a deeper level. It touched you and awakened more of My power that I have placed in you to use for the building of My church body. The veil of complacency and pride have kept what I have for you hidden or stored and unused. You are letting the dust of the world hide my glory meant to draw them to Me. It is time and time is short!”
    Therefore I have registered as a volunteer for the Hanford tent meeting and by faith have secured air & hotel.
    I don’t know gematria but my 77th birthday is 02222022 and falls during the revival. Yes it is time!

        Here in the UK, when writing down a date, we put the day first, then the month and then the year. This would make 22nd February 2022 … 22022022 … which as you will see is a Palindrome! I believe, from the wonderful story above, that this is a palindrome which has come from Abba himself!

    Some have challenged ‘leaders’ in churches for decades to “show us His power”, “Where’s Our God of power”, “we’re weary of the “3rd party” talk, and of His gifted Servants not allowed to DO what He sent us to do. His Children are called to DO great things that reveal Him. He wants to reveal Himself, just reveal Him. We’ve moved away from groups with instructions of men to two by two.

    Some of us are moving through the streets and neighborhoods and ministering stunning miracles, healings, deliverance, salvations; in stores, parking lots, to mechanics, to the insane. We pray and touch and watch the healing and the tears. God is sending us daily. Daily.
    I do not leave my house and return that He doesn’t direct me to a Lamb in crisis. He’s not waiting on us any longer. He’s not talking about the Harvest or a revival because they’re not the Good News. His Lost Lambs are not in the church next to the wolves. Jesus didn’t do any miracles in the temples. Allow the Living God to use you every day. Only believe what you read, pray and go, engage the stranger and pray what you hear. Keep your eyes open! So you can do what He does. Like Jesus told us to.

    Wow this is a crossover time for the body of Christ to be the body of Christ. My pray is help me Holy Spirit to be the resurrection power of Jesus as I surrender totally to God. Unity and one accord to the body of Christ as we surrender and as our flesh dies and Christ arises in us.

    I have been a believer for many years. I have never heard of Mario Murillo before until I started watching flashpoint. Probably the most down to earth, common sensical preaching man I’ve ever heard, from his viewpoint on cultural issues to no nonsense opinions on politics and in between. Very humble and a true passion to do Gods work without fanfare. Did not know he was a original Jesus freak! Thanx for the refreshing air..

    Thank you Mario.
    More than convicting.
    What I so appreciate is how you are able to navigate through all the religious nonsense and keep yourself from being contaminated.
    As an observer, I watch you interact with people who do not have an evangelistic edge and seem to be clueless yet it does not effect you.
    In turn it challenges them.
    It is so evident you are the real deal.
    Thank God for you.

    Mario, do you not know that William Branham was a FALSE PROPHET? He denied the Trinity, said it was of the devil. So the God revealed in sacred scripture is of the devil?

    As ‘Sleepy” Joe Biden would say… Come on man!

      The things you are saying about William b’s trinitarian denial are true but he was not always that way.
      The U,P,C got ahold of him and they appealed to some of his doctrinal ignorance.
      Because of persecution he became open to attack.

      Also we have multiple testimonials of those who were close to him in his most productive ministry years.
      They would take time with you, explain what happened with him and as a reasonable person “which I believe you are” most likely you would have a little more understanding.

      I’m not trying to be disrespectful toward you.
      I think Mario probably has some info about William branham that would help all of us understand clearer why he would quote him.

    Mario, nothing stokes the Holy Fire within me like when the Lord speaks through you. I was stricken with a massive digestive disorder that no doctor can heal, and I believe it came from the enemy after a series of attacks on my marriage and my husband. I believe that the Lord wants to heal me and my husband (from his prodigal heart and anger) and release HIs power in to our lives. I also can sense the Lord preparigng me for something really big, but this blog spoke to me that I must be patient and let the Lord fully prepare and develop me. I have a passion to heal, deliver and restore through God’s power working through me. I need clarity and direction and a full healing of my digestive disorder so I can do the work God has prepared for me to do. I can’t do it sitting at home while suffering an unpredictable affliction with no explanation or treatment! Amen and God Bless this ministry!
