Sid: We want everyone everywhere that has heard the good news and received the Messiah to hear God’s voice for themselves. And God has raised up Richard Mull so that he can mentor you in how to be normal. Normal as defined by the Bible; we have the most wonderful brand new Bible. It’s the NET, the New English Translation, put out by Dallas School of Theology. It is color coded for everything supernatural is one of the finest translations available in modern English. It’s got an imitation leather cover; it’s very readable. And what we want you to do is every time you find something color coded for angels or miracles or God speaking or dreams and visions. Or anything supernatural you can say “That’s mine; that’s what God wants me to have.” And start meditating on it and let the word become flesh, you’ll literally be impregnated with the Word of God. And then we have a four week workbook on how to hear God for yourself and I’m going to tell you something. Things are coming on planet earth that if you don’t hear God’s voice it’ll be life threatening. For instance, Richard Mull tell me about the time that you’re son died and had you not heard God’s voice he would have stayed dead.
Richard: Yes, we actually had just gotten to the hospital. Had been concerned for about 24 hours, we had seen him failing. He was almost 2 years old and didn’t know that some medicines in his stomach had caused an ulcer in his stomach to rupture and he had been being poisoned by his own stomach juices. So we got to the hospital and as I pulled him off of my chest the words that came out of my mouth were he’s gone. He’s dead; and I set him down on the hospital bed and the girls that were in the room were just techs they left the room .And I began to pray over him; doctors immediately came in began to work on him. They could not find a heartbeat; they said “He’s gone” and knew he was dead. Hooked him up to machines and could not get heartbeat, could not get blood pressure; continued to work on him. While they worked on him I answered questions but most of the time I was praying out-loud pretty fearlessly because this is game on, and I’d been studying healing for 15 years and believed that I would see the dead raise. But I hadn’t had that opportunity before the last thing that I ever thought was that it would be one of my own children. But I thanked God that I understood that I understood our authority in the power of God. I began to operate and listen to the voice of God and rebuked death; I thought of every scripture I knew on healing prayed through each one of them. I knew that his spirit was gone; I knew that I was looking at just the shell because his spirit was gone. The son I knew was not there but I was telling him that Nathaniel you come back here now; you listen to your daddy and you come back here right now. I remembered the passage where the father brought his son to Jesus and said “Lord heal my son” and Jesus said to him “Do you believe, Lord I believe help my unbelief.” And in that moment I said “Lord you know I believe, Lord you know I’ve seen most of the miracles in the Bible. But Lord help my unbelief I repent of any unbelief. I want complete faith for this miracle right now.” In that very moment I saw in the middle of this hospital room a boat being tossed by the wave. The kind of boat Jesus and His disciples would have been in to fish. And I saw that boat and in that boat Jesus was standing; it was right there in the middle of the room I saw this vision. And I knew that that was God’s promise to me that my son was going to live. Well, 8 minutes; 15 minutes; 22 minutes; 25 minutes; 30 minutes I knew that we had passed the barriers where they say “Brain damage happens and everything else begins to happen.” And we got to 40 minutes and found his heart beat and his blood pressure and whisked him away. They had discerned that “He had an ulcer that ruptured because of the medicines that he had been on. And the toxins had been poisoning and they told me that he will not make it through the operation and there is no way he is too weak there is no way. If he does he will be totally brain damaged.” And I did not listen to what they were saying; I knew God had promised me that he would be well. And we heard them one more time explain to us the hopelessness of the situation but we weren’t receiving anything that they were saying. And our son today is full of joy and life; he makes us laugh all day long.
Sid: How long was he dead?
Richard: Forty minutes
Sid: I mean if someone is dead for 40 minutes they should not even have a brain.
Sid: He should be brain dead.
Richard: He spent 10 weeks in recovery drug induced coma because of the operation. His body had to heal and there were complications they had to do dialysis for a week and there were other things. But God healed every part of his body and he came home. When we came back for a checkup the doctor walked in the room and started to cry and turned around and walked out because he couldn’t believe what he was seeing. Nathaniel was playing with a fishing pole catching fish with a magnetic fishing pole. And the skill level involved in doing that is pretty high for any 2 year old and there he was you know catching fish with this fishing pole and just laughing and smiling.
Sid: Now a few years ago God spoke to you to sell your house do you know why God said that?
Richard: He was actually speaking to us about first of all decluttering being ready to respond whatever he led us to do. He also began to speak that there was destruction coming to cities in America. And that we would need to be ready to move and to go. That was my wife that first heard about selling the house and if you know my wife that is not what she would typically think or want to do. We love our house; we love where we live but we learned God’s voice. And we’ve learned every time we obey Him we hit a home run. But the first time He told us we didn’t listen and if we had we would have been able to pay cash for our house just 2 years later.
Sid: You hear from God and the most amazing miracles are happening. For instance, briefly, because of whose hands because of such severe arthritis were about ready to be amputated.
Richard: We knew that that type of arthritis comes from self-hatred and as we were ministering to her the Holy Spirit just impressed upon me to ask her if there was anything that she hadn’t been able to forgive herself for. And in that moment she asked if her daughter could be excused from the room because she had come with her daughter and her daughter left the room. And she opened up to us about something that happened when she was a young girl that she had never been able to forgive herself for. That day she forgave herself; it took a while because if was one thing for her to believe God forgave her but it was another thing to receive His forgiveness. She knew it all of her life but she never received it because she never deserved it she felt. So she received God’s forgiveness and then I asked her can you forgive yourself now. And she said “No, I could never do that.” And I said “If the highest court in the land abdicates them of their sin; removes them of their guilt; can a lower court hold them accountable?” She said, “No.” Do you realize that you’re putting yourself above God?” If you can receive His forgiveness do you believe your justice is greater than His?” And she said “That doesn’t sound really good does it?” “No, but would you agree that that’s what you’re doing?” And she said “Yeah.” And she forgave herself and God totally healed her hands that day.
Sid: Could you briefly tell me, this is amazing, about a pastor it’s ready to divorce his wife after 18 years of marriage and what happened real quick.
Richard: Yeah, this was 11:00 at night which isn’t my time of day. And I said “God I want to know right off the bat what the issue is that we need to deal with.” And we had our brief introduction, a little chit chat and I said “Whose Karen?” Because I had been getting the name Karen. And he said “I don’t know.” Somebody in your church named Karen? No. Somebody in your past named Karen? And he said “Yeah.” And he said “I dated a girl when I was 15.” And I said “You had sexual relations with her? And he said “Yeah.” I said “You have her picture in your wallet and you have her phone number on the back of the picture.” And he said “Yeah.”
Sid: How did you know that?
Richard: You know I just learned to pay attention to the still small voice so it’s less than a whisper but it’s as clear as can be. And I just knew in my spirit about those things. And I just often praise Him in the form of a question because sometimes even when you are right people either want to hide something or its different things. I was just wording it I was like “Is there a picture in your wallet?” And he was like yeah. And her phone numbers on the back of the picture. And you fantasize about her when your with your wife. Every question was “Yes.” And I said “You’ve got an ungodly soul tie with a woman that you had a relationship with 36 years ago and you got to break up with that fantasy or you’re going to be miserable.
Sid: What happened when he broke that fantasy through prayer?
Richard: His ministry was restored, his marriage he’s happily married. He actually has a healing ministry in his church and God kept him from walking away from the ministry, and his wife and family.
Sid: Okay, you’ve been listening to us all this week and you’ve been thinking “That is wonderful for Richard Mull but what about me God? Well, I’m telling you this is why God raised up Richard Mull to mentor you in hearing God’s voice for yourself.
