Read Time: 4 Minutes, 23 Seconds
The second and final night of Fire and Glory in Fort Meyers, Fla., was an amazing time in the presence of God. Intense worship, a great word from Evangelist Mario Murillo, and an amazing response to the salvation call all demonstrated the wondrous power of God.
As it did the previous night, the crusade tent filled up early. The inside of the tent was virtually full 60 minutes before the announced starting time, so worship began almost an hour early.
It was a great time of worship and toward the end of it, there was a powerful presence of God in the tent. Lance Wallnau came on the stage and encouraged the people to pray in the Spirit and to sing their own new song to God.
A short time later, Murillo took the stage. He began by setting a spiritual ground rule, declaring that the diagnoses many had received from their doctor would soon no longer be true and that the powers of darkness in this region would be broken by the power of God.
He then made declarations, binding cancer and diabetes in the name of Jesus. Binding the works of the devil in your body in sickness, in Jesus' name.
He had the people raise their hands and pray in tongues. The atmosphere was primed for great miracles to break out as the people invited the Holy Spirit in and gave Him room to work. Mario then had the people shout to God one more time before having them take their seats.
He began preaching a salvation message. He said it is time for God to overtake the programs of the church and for us to stop believing that our churches grow because of our great intelligence. It is God Himself Who has decided to reach America.
He shared how the Bible tells us that the root cause of addiction is despair and pain. He then talked about the woes and cares of the world, both what we have suffered and what we are told is coming.
The Bible says the season we are living in would be like Charles Dickens Tale of Two Cities, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times."
He shared that God will provide a shelter for His people.
"Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid" (John 14:27).
Murillo told about the story of the woman at the well. How at first, she was on edge, and offended by Jesus talking to her. Instead of rebuking her He said,
"If you knew the gift of God, and Who it is Who says to you, 'Give me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water" (John 4:10).
Murillo made an appeal for those who wanted to surrender their lives. As in previous Murillo crusades, hundreds came forward. The front of the tent was filled with souls surrendering their lives to Christ, receiving the water that quenches thirst eternally.
In the midst of his teaching, Murillo began to call out the miracles that God was doing.
He signaled out a man had heart disease, diabetes and neuropathy of the feet. Then he pointed to a woman who had fallen down a flight of stairs, damaging her back and right side of her body.
He talked about how there was a battle going on in the spirit, trying to keep people from getting their healing. And that he cannot do anything to heal or make them well, but can war alongside them to remove the barriers between them and their miracle.
He had the people repeat the words, "I am going to get my miracle tonight."
Murillo told the crowd that if you rely on your power to believe for your healing, you are going to stay sick. But if you surrender to the Holy Spirit and allow the faith of Jesus to be imparted to you, then you'll be healed
When a woman's lungs were healed, it was revealed that she had been suffering for over 12 years. Before, she had been on oxygen and struggling to breathe, but now, she said, she able to fully breathe.
Another woman was called out for nearly every part of her body. Neck, shoulders, stomach, back, hips, knees, feet, fingers, numbness in the leg, lungs, dizziness, and one of her ears. Murillo had her move her arms and legs and she began to walk across the front of the tent. On her return trip, she began to run.
The best part was, she said she hadn't even come for her own healing. She came to receive an anointing to take back to hurting people in her own community.
People with cancers, tumors, heart disease, diabetes and other afflictions all came to the front, trusting in God for their miraculous healing. A woman who had endured the pain in her jaw from grinding her teeth, who had painful migraine headaches, insomnia, and pain in her spine. was also healed.
With the Holy Spirit was flowing across the tent, healings began to take place. With God, nothing is impossible.
