John Mellor Reveals Keys to Healing | Something More


[MUSIC] [MUSIC] DC: HELLO EVERYONE! WELCOME
TO “SOMETHING MORE”. I’M YOUR HOST
DONNA CHAVIS. AND I WANTED TO READ
SOMETHING THAT MY GUEST SAID ABOUT HIMSELF
BEFORE WE MEET HIM. AND HE SAID, “FROM
THE DUST OF THE AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK AND THE
DUST OF MY BROKEN LIFE, GOD MADE SOMETHING
THAT COULD BE USED FOR HIS GLORY.”
WOO, WOW! ALL THE WAY
FROM AUSTRALIA, PLEASE WELCOME
JOHN MELLOR. HI JOHN! JM: HI DONNA,
THANKS FOR HAVING ME. DC: OH ABSOLUTELY! JOHN, YOU ARE A
HEALING EVANGELIST. JM: YES. DC: YOU GO AFTER
THE SOULS OF PEOPLE, GET THEM SAVED, SO
PASSIONATE ABOUT THAT. JM: YEAH. DC: BUT HEALING IS SUCH
A BIG PART OF WHAT YOU DO, AS WELL. DO YOU ACTUALLY
BELIEVE THAT MIRACLES STILL HAPPEN TODAY? NOW, I’M TALKING ABOUT
MIRACLES LIKE JESUS DID THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO. IS THAT STILL
RELEVANT TODAY? JM: WELL, IT CERTAINLY
IS DONNA. YEAH, WE SEE ALL TYPES OF
MIRACLES FROM PEOPLE WHO ARE QUADRIPLEGICS
IN WHEELCHAIRS, PNEUMONIA, LUNG
DISEASE, PARKINSON’S, M.S., GOD CREATING
ORGANS IN BODIES, SUPERNATURAL MIRACLES,
AND THESE ARE DOCUMENTED. YOU CAN SEE
THEM ON YOUTUBE. WE HAVE DOCTORS ALL IN
AMERICA AND IN EUROPE THAT ACTUALLY SENT THEIR
PATIENTS TO US. DC: WOW! [LAUGHS] YOU DON’T HEAR OF
THAT VERY OFTEN. NOW, I WANTED TO
TAKE YOU BACK, AND I KNOW THAT YOU’RE
HEALED FROM ALL OF THIS NOW AND SO IT’S AS A
TESTIMONY TO WHO YOU ARE NOW; GROWING UP WAS
NOT EASY FOR YOU, JOHN. JM: NO, IT WASN’T. I WAS RAISED IN A VERY
DYSFUNCTIONAL HOME. MY MOTHER HAD MENTAL
HEALTH ISSUES AND SHE WAS IN AND OUT OF
MENTAL HOSPITALS. AND MY FATHER
WAS OFTEN DRUNK, AN ANGRY MAN, HAD
BEEN THROUGH THE WAR, AND THINGS HAD
HAPPENED IN HIS LIFE. SO BECAUSE DAD COULDN’T
COPE AND MUM WASN’T WELL, THEY PUT US IN
CHILDREN’S HOMES. AND SO I GREW UP WITH A
LOT OF CONFUSION AND FEAR AND REJECTION BECAUSE A
CHILD DOESN’T UNDERSTAND WHAT’S HAPPENING IN
HIS WORLD. DC: OF COURSE. JM: AND DAD WAS ALWAYS
ANGRY AND UPSET, AND SO YEAH, IT WAS QUITE
A LOT OF HEARTACHE AND PERSONAL PAIN GROWING UP. DC: SURE. AND I KNOW BY THE TIME
YOU WERE A TEENAGER, BY FIFTEEN STARTED
GETTING INTO DRINKING, BY SEVENTEEN AN ALCOHOLIC,
INVOLVED IN GANGS, SO MANY THINGS LIKE THAT. BUT YOU HAD, SHORTLY AFTER
THAT YOU HAD WHAT YOU CALLED A PIVOTAL MOMENT IN YOUR
LIFE THAT ACTUALLY BROUGHT YOU TO THE LORD. TELL US ABOUT THAT. JM: YEAH, WELL IT’S
INTERESTING IN SOMEBODY’S COMING TO CHRIST THERE’S
ALWAYS A SERIES OF DIFFERENT EVENTS AND I
SUPPOSE IT BEGAN WHEN I WAS BORN. WHEN I WAS BORN,
THE FAMOUS ACTOR SEAN CONNERY’S MOTHER-IN-LAW,
SHE WAS A MEDICAL DOCTOR AND SHE WAS THE ONE
WHO DELIVERED ME. SHE WAS A CHRISTIAN. THAT WAS DOCTOR, DC: OKAY, LET ME JUST STOP YOU
IN CASE [LAUGHS], IN CASE NOT EVERYBODY GOT
THAT. I WANTED TO MAKE A POINT IF YOU HEARD WHAT HE
SAID. THE FAMOUS ACTOR SEAN CONNERY’S MOTHER-IN-LAW
IS THE PERSON THAT DELIVERED HIM. SHE IS THE
PERSON THAT HAD HER HANDS ON HIM FIRST. AND
WHAT DID SHE DO? JM: YEAH, SHE WAS THE
FIRST PERSON TO HOLD ME. WELL, SHE WAS A VERY
FAMOUS MEDICAL DOCTOR, DR. PHYLLIS CILENTO,
IN AUSTRALIA, AND SHE WAS A CHRISTIAN. AND SHE HABITUALLY PRAYED
FOR EVERY CHILD SHE BROUGHT INTO THE WORLD AND
SHE WAS OUR FAMILY DOCTOR. AND SHE HAD COMPASSION FOR
PEOPLE WHO WERE DOWN AND OUT AND HAVING PROBLEMS. SO, SHE TOOK MUM UNDER HER
WING BECAUSE OF HER MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES AND TOOK OUR
FAMILY UNDER HER WING AND SHE PERSONALLY LOOKED
AFTER ME AND DELIVERED ME. AND SO I ALWAYS SAY THAT
JAMES BOND’S MOTHER-IN-LAW DELIVERED ME. DC: [LAUGHS] JM: SHE WAS THE FIRST ONE
TO HOLD ME, SO, SHE PRAYED FOR ME AT BIRTH. AND THEN
WHEN I WAS PUT INTO A CHILDREN’S HOME, YEARS
LATER, I MET THE LADY WHO WAS THE NURSE’S ASSISTANT, IN
CHARGE OF ALL THE CHILDREN. AND SHE WAS A BORN-AGAIN
CHRISTIAN AND SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE USED TO PRAY
FOR ALL THE CHILDREN, EVERY DAY, IN THE HOME. SO, IT’S AMAZING HOW
GOD HAS HIS HAND ON PEOPLE’S LIVES. EVEN WHEN I WAS BORN, AS A
CHILD IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL THIS DISTRESS, GOD HAD
PEOPL, HE MOVED PEOPLE INTO MY SITUATION
TO PRAY FOR ME. DC: HE HAD A PLAN
FOR YOU, DIDN’T HE? JM: YEAH! DC: AND NOW, TELL ME ABOUT
YOUR BROTHER AND THEN THESE OTHER EVENTS THAT
LEAD TO YOU. JM: YEAH WELL,
INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, I GOT INVOLVED IN GANGS AS
A YOUNG MAN AND I DROPPED OUT OF SCHOOL VERY YOUNG
AND SO DID MY BROTHER. AND MY BROTHER BECAME A
DRUG ADDICT AND HE BECAME A CHRISTIAN THROUGH
TEEN CHALLENGE. AND OF COURSE, HE
BEGAN TO PRAY FOR ME. I HAD GOTTEN INVOLVED IN
AN OUTLAW MOTORCYCLE CLUB AND ONE DAY I HAD A
TERRIBLE BIKE ACCIDENT. BUT BEFORE I
HAD THE ACCIDENT, MY BROTHER
ALWAYS SAID TO ME, “JOHN, WHEN YOU DIE YOU’LL
GO TO HELL,” AND I USED TO LAUGH AND MOCK HIM. BUT AT THAT MOMENT,
AFTER THE ACCIDENT, I’M LYING THERE AND
BLOOD’S COMING OUT, AND THE AMBULANCE
IS THERE, AND THEY’RE
TRYING TO SEW ME UP, THE THOUGHT CAME TO
ME OF HOW EASILY I COULD HAVE DIED, DONNA. AND I THOUGHT,
“YOU KNOW WHAT? ETERNITY’S
FOREVER.” AND SO, I’M IN THE AMBULANCE GOING
TO THE HOSPITAL AND ONCE AGAIN THESE TWO
CHRISTIAN BIKER GUYS, THEY SAW THE ACCIDENT,
AND THEY’RE FOLLOWING THE AMBULANCE TO THE HOSPITAL,
AND THEY’RE PRAYING FOR THE GUY WHO HAD
THE ACCIDENT. AND SO ONCE AGAIN, GOD
BRINGS THESE TWO GUYS WHO ARE INTERCEDING AND
FOLLOWING THE AMBULANCE ALL THE WAY TO
THE HOSPITAL. DC: SO, THEY SAW THE ACCIDENT
AND THEY FOLLOWED, JM: YEAH! THEY FOLLOWED THE
AMBULANCE AND THEY’RE PRAYING FOR ME. THEY
DECIDED TO FOLLOW THE AMBULANCE AND PRAY FOR
THE YOUNG GUY WHO HAD THE BIKE ACCIDENT. SO, THEY’RE FOLLOWING
THE AMBULANCE, PRAYING FOR ME. HERE
I’M LYING THERE THINKING ABOUT, “I COULD HAVE DIED. I COULD HAVE GONE
TO HELL.” AND SO, I GET INTO THE HOSPITAL
AND THEY SEW ME UP, AND THIS GUY WITH
TATTOOS AND A BEARD, HE COMES INTO
THE CASUALTY WARD, HE LOOKS DOWN
AT ME AND SAYS, “I WANT TO TELL
YOU THIS,” HE SAYS, “JESUS LOVES YOU AND HAS A
PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE,” AND HE WALKED OUT. AND I’M LYING
THERE THINKING, “THIS IS CRAZY!”
SO, I GOT HOME, OUT OF THE HOSPITAL, I’M
LYING IN BE, YOU KNOW, ALL OF THESE EVENTS,
PEOPLE PRAYING FOR ME, MY BROTHER, THESE BIKERS,
RIGHT FROM BIRT, AND I’M LYING IN BED
AND I CRIED OUT, I SAID, “JESUS, IF YOU
ARE REAL,” BECAUSE I HAD SO MUCH TORMENT IN MY LIFE. I HAD DEPRESSION. I WAS A SUICIDAL CHILD.
I USED TO THREATEN TO KILL MYSELF. I WAS A DEPRESSED CHILD. I HAD NIGHT HORRORS AND
NIGHTMARES AND BEDWETTING AND I WAS SO DISTURBED. AND I’M LYING
THERE AT NIGHT, I SAID, “JESUS,
IF YOU ARE REAL, TELL ME YOU ARE. PLEASE, HELP ME. SET ME FREE. GOD, WHATEVER IT IS, I
GIVE MY LIFE TO YOU.” AND I WAS SO SERIOUS,
SO TORMENTED, AND THEN THIS PEACE
CAME IN THE ROOM AND I FELL ASLEEP. AND I WOKE UP IN THE
MORNING AND I THOUGHT, “I JUST FEEL SO PEACEFUL! WHAT WAS THAT? THAT’S A STRANGE FEELING.”
AND I COULD SEE HOW BRIGHT THE GREEN LEAVES
WERE AND THE FLOWERS; I COULD HEAR THE
BIRDS SINGING. I THOUGHT, “LAST
NIGHT, FOR THE FIRST TIME, I CRIED OUT TO GOD, I
ASKED JESUS TO FORGIVE ME AND COME INTO MY LIFE. I WONDER IF THIS IS WHAT
IT IS FOR JESUS TO COME INTO YOUR LIFE.” AND I
FELT SO HAPPY AND EXCITED AND MY LIFE WAS
NEVER THE SAME AGAIN. I BEGAN MY FIRST CHRISTIAN
WALK IN THIS ORGANIZATION CALLED THE GOD SQUAD; IT’S
FOR CHRISTIAN BIKERS WHO GET SAVED. AND SO, I HAD AN AMAZING
ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS AND MY LIFE’S NEVER
BEEN THE SAME, DONNA. NEVER BEEN THE SAME. DC: AH, THAT IS A GOOD
PLACE TO STOP AND TAKE A QUICK BREAK. SO, WE’RE GOING TO FAST
FORWARD JUST A LITTLE BIT. JOHN IS A NEW
BELIEVER [MUSIC], HE GETS MARRIED, HE’S
GOT FOUR YOUNG CHILDREN, AND QUITE AN ADVENTURE
AHEAD OF HIM. STAY WITH US. [MUSIC] [MUSIC] DC: WELCOME BACK EVERYONE
TO “SOMETHING MORE”. I’M HERE WITH JOHN
MELLOR, AS YOU HEARD, ALL THE WAY
FROM AUSTRALIA. AND SO, JOHN IS ABOUT TO
START A NEW CHAPTER IN HIS LIFE. HE IS A BELIEVER,
HE’S A FATHER, HE’S A HUSBAND, AND HE
GETS THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO A PLACE TO MINISTER
THAT IS BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL; I MEAN IT’S
JUST THE PERFECT PLACE TO START A MINISTRY. RIGHT, JOHN? JM: THAT’S RIGHT. DC: [LAUGHS] JM: YEAH WELL, IT WAS
QUITE A DIFFERENT PLACE; IT WAS CALLED KATHERINE,
NORTHERN TERRITORY. AND NORTHERN TERRITORY
IS LIKE THE WILD WEST; IT’S LIKE IN THE MIDDLE
OF NOWHERE AND THERE’S A LARGE INDIGENOUS
ABORIGINAL POPULATION. AND IT’S GOT THE
HIGHEST MURDER RATES, VIOLENCE, AND ALCOHOLISM
IN THE WHOLE NATION. AND SO, I HAD A
HEART TO GO THERE. I WANTED TO MAKE A
DIFFERENCE TO THE WORLD. WHEN GOD SAVED ME,
GOD DELIVERED ME, I HAD A HEART TO REACH OUT
TO THE LOST AND THE BROKEN AND SO I FELT CALLED,
ME AND MY FAMILY, TO GO TO THIS
VERY REMOTE PLACE. IT’S IN THE MIDDLE
OF NOWHERE. DC: SO IT WASN’T EXACTLY
HOW I DESCRIBED IT? JM: NOT REALLY; IT’S
QUITE THE OPPOSITE. JM: IN FACT, IT’S VERY
NORMAL TO WALK DOWN THE STREET AND SEE
PEOPLE FIGHTING EACH OTHER AND QUITE OFTEN WE
USED TO JUST TRY AND HELP PEOPLE, SAVE LIVES. THERE WERE BOTTLES
AND KNIFES, AND FIGHTING, AND
DRUNKEN BRAWLS, AND IT WAS JUST A
VERY, VERY WILD PLACE, BUT THAT’S WHERE I
FELT GOD WANTED US TO GO. AND SO WE WENT OUT
THERE AND IT WAS A VERY DIFFICULT PLACE. IT WAS VERY EXPENSIVE,
BUT THE CHURCH ALWAYS SENT ME OUT. THEY TAUGHT US TO
FAST AND PRAY AND SO, I DID A LOT OF FASTING AND
PRAYING AND CRYING OUT TO GOD. AND SO, I HAD THIS
OUTREACH AT A PLACE CALLED BINJARI, WHICH
WAS ABOUT, PROBABLY, FIFTEEN MILES OUT OF TOWN. IT WAS THIS ABORIGINAL
COMMUNITY AND IT WAS A VERY WILD PLACE, BUT I
USED TO GO OUT THERE AND I USE TO, OF COURSE, THE
PEOPLE WERE TRIBAL PEOPLE AND MY CHURCH WAS JUST A
FIELD AND I USED TO SIT ON A LOG AND TELL
BIBLE STORIES, SIMPLE BIBLE STORIES. DC: AND HOW MANY
PEOPLE WOULD COME OUT TO THESE MEETINGS? JM: I HAD AN OLD LADY AND
THREE OR FOUR CHILDREN. THAT WAS MY CHURCH. DC: AN OLD LADY AND
THREE OR FOUR CHILDREN? JM: THAT’S WHAT I HAD. DC: [LAUGHS] OKAY. JM: AND SO, BECAUSE THE
PEOPLE WEREN’T INTERESTED IN WHAT I HAD TO SAY
BECAUSE MISSIONARIES HAD COME AND GONE AND, DC: BECAUSE SPIRITUALLY,
THEY WERE VERY HARD, WEREN’T THEY? I MEAN, THEY
WERE USED TO DEMONIC INFLUENCES AND TRIBAL
THINGS AND, JM: WELL, OUT THERE WE DEALT
A LOT WITH WITCHCRAFT. THEY HAD THE
KADAITCHA MAN, THE KADAITCHA MAN WAS
LIKE THE WITCHDOCTOR WHO PRACTICES BLACK MAGIC. AND PEOPLE EVEN TODAY
STILL LIVE UNDER FEAR OF THESE KADAITCHA
MEN, THE WITCHDOCTORS, AND THEY DO CEREMONIES
WHERE THEY MAKE PEOPLE DIE JUST BY CHANTING. IT’S ALL, BUT ANYWAY, I
WENT OUT THERE TO BINJARI AND I JUST TOLD
BIBLE STORIES AND AFTER A WHILE I WAS
GETTING NOWHERE. AND I THOUGHT, “GOD, I
NEED A BREAKTHROUGH.” SO I THOUGHT, “I’M GOING TO
FAST FROM THE FIRST DAY TO THE TENTH OF THE MONTH,
THE FIRST THROUGH THE TENTH OF EVERY MONTH, FAST
AND PRAY FOR THEM TO BE SAVED.” NOW DONNA, AT
THIS STAGE I DIDN’T BELIEVE IN HEALING. I DIDN’T BELIEVE
IN HEALING. I MEAN, I KNEW
HEALING WAS THERE, BUT I HAD NEVER
SEEN PEOPLE HEALED. AND SO, BUT I WAS PRAYING
FOR THEM TO COME TO KNOW CHRIST. DC: RIGHT! JM: AND SO, FOR FIVE
MONTHS I WAS FASTING AND PRAYING. I GO OUT THERE AND THE OLD
LADY USED TO COME OUT AND THE FEW CHILDREN, AND IT
WAS QUITE DISCOURAGING BECAUSE IN TOWN I HAD MY
MAIN CHURCH AND ALL I HAD WAS ONE CHURCH MEMBER. DC: NO! [LAUGHS] JM: ONE CHURCH
MEMBER WAS ALL I HAD. THE PROBLEM WAS, DONNA,
SOMETIMES I WOULD GO VISIT MY CHURCH AND
HE WASN’T HOME. DC: WELL NOW, I HEARD
SOMETHING ABOUT YOU TOO. I HEARD THAT, YOU KNOW,
WHEN YOU FIRST STARTED OUT THERE THAT YOU’RE CHURCH
MEMBERSHIP WAS LOW, SO YOU WANTED TO
PRACTICE YOUR PREACHING, SO YOU WOULD GO OUT AND
PREACH TO THE KANGAROOS. JM: I USED TO PREACH
TO KANGAROOS. DC: NO! [LAUGHS] JM: I USED TO GO OUT
INTO THE BUSH AND I USED TO PREACH TO THE
KANGAROOS TO PRACTICE MY PREACHING. IN
FACT, I EVEN HAD A PET KANGAROO
THAT USED TO SLEEP IN BED WITH
ME CALLED ARCHIE, ARCHIE THE KANGAROO. AND I USED TO PREACH AND
ARCHIE USED TO, I FOUND HIM AS A BABY AND I USED TO
PUT ARCHIE IN A LITTLE SLING AROUND MY
NECK AND I’D PREACH. WHEN ARCHIE
GOT BIGGER, HE, LIKE A DOG, USED
TO FOLLOW ME. SO WHEN I USED TO PREACH,
ARCHIE USED TO HOP UP AND DOWN. HOP, MIND YOU, ALL
I HAD WAS ONE PERSON IN MY CHURCH AND ARCHIE
USED TO HOP UP AND DOWN, HOP UP AND DOWN
WHILE I’M PREACHING. DC: ONE PERSON
AND A KANGAROO? JM: YEAH, AND A KANGAROO! AND I WENT OUT TO BINJARI
AND AFTER FIVE MONTHS OF FASTING AND
PRAYING, THIS LADY, THIS OLD LADY
CALLED ELSIE, AND SHE COULDN’T
SPEAK ENGLISH PROPERLY. SHE COULD SPEAK
BROKEN CREOLE AND TRIBAL LANGUAGE, WATERMEN TRIBE, AND SHE SPOKE
WITH BROKEN CREOLE, AND SO I HAD TO SPEAK VERY
SLOWLY AND VERY SIMPLY. BUT ANYWAY, ONE DAY AFTER
FIVE MONTHS OF FASTING AND PRAYING, I NOTICE SHE WAS
ALWAYS IN PAIN AND SO I HAD THIS IMPULSE
TO PRAY FOR HER; IT WAS JUST
OUT OF THE BLUE. I SAID LISTEN, “I’LL PRAY
FOR YOU.” I WAS ON MY LOG, I STOOD UP, AND SHE
WAS IN THE GRASS. THE CHILDREN HELPED HER UP
AND SHE CAME TO THE FRONT WHERE I WAS AND I LAID MY
HANDS ON HER LEG BECAUSE I HAD SEEN PEOPLE
LAY HANDS ON PEOPLE. SO I PRAYED FOR HER LEG,
BUT I THOUGH NOTHING MORE OF IT AND
AFTER THAT, DONNA, I LEFT. AND I USED TO GO THERE
EVERY SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND HAVE A MEETING OUT
THERE IN THE FIELD WITH THE FEW CHILDREN
AND ELSIE. DC: RIGHT. JM: SO THE NEXT WEEK I
WENT OUT THERE AND THERE WAS A CROWD OF PEOPLE. I THOUGHT, “WHAT
ARE THEY HERE FOR? IS THERE A BIG
FOOTBALL MATCH? WHAT’S HAPPENING?”
DC: WHAT HAPPENED? JM: THEY CAME TO SEE ME
BECAUSE ELSIE GOT HEALED AND TOLD THE WHOLE TRIBE. SO THEY WANTED ME
TO PRAY FOR THEM. AND HERE WAS I, I DIDN’T
REALLY BELIEVE IN HEALING. I WASN’T TOO SURE
IF IT WAS REAL. AND THEY SAID,
“PRAY FOR ME! PRAY FOR ME!” SO I WAS
PRAYING FOR THEM AND GOD WAS HEALING THEM. I THOUGHT, “HOW IS THIS
HAPPENING?” I DIDN’T EVEN BELIEVE IN THIS
REALLY, YOU KNOW? HOW IS THIS
HEALING HAPPENING? AND SO THE PEOPLE BEGAN TO
CALL ME THE MISSIONARY MAN WHO HEALS. AND THEN I GOT
INVITATIONS TO EVEN MORE REMOTE PLACES! I GO OUT THERE AND HAVE
THESE WILD MEETINGS OF HEALING. AND YOU KNOW THE
WITCHDOCTORS WOULD HAVE THEIR CEREMONIES AND
TRY AND CURSE ME AND DOGS WOULD COME AND BITE ME
BECAUSE THE DOGS ARE DEMONIZED OUT THERE. WHEN YOU MENTION THE
BLOOD OF JESUS THEY’LL ALL COME AND ATTACK
YOU AND BITE YOU. SO I USED TO CARRY A
STICK WHEN I WAS PRAYING FOR PEOPLE. SO, I HAD A STICK
IN ONE HAND, HITTING THE DOGS, AND
PRAYING FOR PEOPLE LIKE THIS [LAUGHS]. IT WAS WILD,
BUT IT WAS FUN! IT WAS FUN! DC: YOU KNOW, SOMETHING
THAT YOU SAID. YOU WERE SKEPTICAL YOURSELF,
WHEN ALL OF THIS STARTED HAPPENING AND THEN YOU
STARTED GOING INTO THESE REMOTE VILLAGES AND
COMMUNITIES AND PRAYING FOR THESE PEOPLE
THAT WERE DEMONIZED, THEY WERE WITCHDOCTORS,
THEY BELIEVED IN ALL THESE TRIBAL, TRADITIONAL THINGS. JM: YEAH. DC: IF WHAT YOU
HAD WAS NOT REAL, MAN, YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN
EATEN ALIVE [LAUGHS], JM: THAT’S RIGHT! DC: I THINK, SERIOUSLY, IT
HAD TO BE REAL. JM: IT HAD TO BE REAL
AND THE THING IS, DC: IT HAD TO BE REAL FOR
THEM TO EVEN BELIEVE IT, FOR THEM TO REALIZE THAT. JM: THAT’S CORRECT, YEAH. BUT THE WHOLE CRAZY THING
WAS THAT EVEN THOUGH I WAS IN A PENTECOSTAL
CHURCH, YOU KNOW I WAS, I CATEGORIZED MYSELF AS
AN UNBELIEVING BELIEVER. I BELIEVED IN CHRIST, I
BELIEVED HE WAS RISEN FROM THE DEAD, THE
SECOND COMING OF CHRIST, BUT BECAUSE I HADN’T
SEEN MIRACLES, I DIDN’T, INSIDE MY
HEART, I THOUGHT, “OKAY?” I DIDN’T REALLY
BELIEVE IT WAS REAL. I THOUGHT MAYBE IT
HAPPENS SOMEWHERE IN THE CONGO, BUT NOT WHERE
I LIVE IN AUSTRALIA. AND SO I HAD ALL THESE
RESERVATIONS AND UNBELIEF, BUT THANK GOD, HE
SHOWED ME HE’S REAL. AND I HAD A REVELATION
THAT ALL MY LIFE, EVEN AS A CHRISTIAN, I
WAS ALWAYS TRYING TO ANALYZE THINGS. YOU KNOW, WHY IS
THAT HAPPENING? HOW CAN A LAME
PERSON WALK? DC: SURE. JM: HOW CAN? I WAS TRYING
TO COME AT GOD WITH MY NATURAL MIND INSTEAD
OF MY SPIRIT MAN. DC: RIGHT. JM: AND THEN I HAD THIS
REVELATION THAT CHANGED MY LIFE. AND GOD SAID, “WHEN ARE
YOU JUST GOING TO BELIEVE ME?” AND YOU
KNOW WHAT I SAID? I SAID, “LORD, I’M
GOING TO BELIEVE YOU. I’M GOING TO BELIEVE YOU!” DC: SO YOU MADE A
DECISION TO BELIEVE? JM: I MADE A CHOICE. I MADE A DECISION
TO BELIEVE GOD. DC: YOU MADE A DECISION.
BELIEVING IS A DECISION. JM: TO BELIEVE GOD! JM: I SAID, “LORD, FROM
NOW ON I’M GOING TO BELIEVE YOU.”
[MUSIC] DC: WOW! I THINK THAT’S A
CHOICE THAT A LOT OF US NEED TO MAKE. LET’S TAKE A QUICK BREAK. WE’VE GOT LOTS MORE
WITH JOHN MELLOR IN JUST A MOMENT. SO PLEASE STAY WITH US. [MUSIC] [MUSIC] DC: WELCOME BACK EVERYBODY.
I AM SURE YOU ARE ENJOYING LISTENING TO JOHN MELLOR,
WHO’S WITH US TODAY. AND JOHN, I WANTED TO
TALK ABOUT SOMETHING. YOU KNOW, THIS HAS
BEEN AN AMAZING STORY, BUT AT A POINT
IN YOUR LIFE, DEVASTATION WAS
JUST ALL AROUND YOU. THERE WAS A
HORRIBLE FLOOD. JM: YEAH. DC: YOU LOST EVERYTHING. JM: YEAH. DC: LIFE WAS HARD,
MINISTRY WAS HARD AND YOUR WIFE THAT YOU
WERE MARRIED TO AT THE TIME, IT WAS TOUGH! I MEAN, EVERYBODY KNOWS
THAT IT WAS TOUGH AND SO SHE JUST COULD NOT DO IT
ANYMORE AND YOU WOUND UP GETTING A DIVORCE. JM: YEAH. DC: WHAT DID YOU
THINK AT THAT MOMENT? JM: WELL, WHAT HAPPENED
WAS THAT WE HAD BEEN SERVING ON THE MISSION
FIELD FOR YEARS AND YEARS AND WE SAW SO
MANY WONDERFUL THINGS HAPPENING. AND THEN A FLOOD CAME,
TWENTY, TWO AND A HALF METERS, WASHED MOST
OF THE TOWN AWAY. I MEAN WE LOST EVERYTHING,
LOST OUR HOME. THE MISSION
HOUSE WAS GONE. THE CHURCH WAS WRECKED,
IT WAS UNDERWATER. THE WHOLE THING
WAS DESTROYED. WE LOST EVERYTHING. AND OF COURSE FINANCIALLY,
WE HAD MASSIVE DEBT. WE LOST EVERYTHING. AND ONE DAY MY WIFE SAID,
“I CAN’T DO THIS ANYMORE,” AND SHE TOOK OFF
WITH ANOTHER MAN. AND SO, HERE I WAS AFTER
SERVING GOD AND GIVING EVERYTHING UP TO SERVE
GOD IN THE MISSION FIELD, I LOST EVERYTHING. AND THEN MY HEALTH
WENT, MY BACK WENT, AND MY HOME WAS A
LITTLE CARAVAN, A BROKEN-DOWN, I DON’T
KNOW WHAT YOU CALL IT IN AMERICA, LITTLE CARAVAN. AND HERE I WAS ON MY
OWN, CHRONIC PAIN, MY WIFE WAS OFF
WITH ANOTHER MAN, THE CHURCH WAS GONE,
THE HOUSE IS DESTROYED, DEBT, EVERYTHING, AND
I’M SITTING THERE AND I’M FEELING SLIGHTLY
DEPRESSED [LAUGHS]. DC: I GUESS! JM: YOU KNOW, IT’S AMAZING
HOW WHEN THINGS FALL APART, HOW THE DEVIL
COMES TO RUB THE SALT IN. AND THE DEVIL SAID,
“YOU KNOW WHAT?” THE VOICE SAID, “YOU
KNOW WHAT JOHN? YOU’RE FINISHED. YOU’RE FINISHED! YOU’LL NEVER
MINISTER AGAIN. LOOK AT YOU! YOU’VE LOST EVERYTHING! WHO IS EVER GOING
TO, YOU’VE LOST IT! YOUR DREAM IS FINISHED!”
IT’S LIKE THE DEVIL SAID, “WHERE IS GOD NOW? WHERE IS GOD NOW?”
AND ALL THE SUDDEN, IN THE EMOTIONAL TRAUMA,
THE PHYSICAL PAIN, ALL THE SUDDEN ALL OF
THESE PROPHECIES BEGAN TO COME BACK. I HAD PROPHECIES OVER THE
YEARS OF HOW GOD WAS GOING TO USE ME TO PREACH
THE GOSPEL AND EVEN TRAVEL THE WORLD AND SEE
WONDERFUL THINGS. PROPHECIES AND SCRIPTURES
IN GALATIANS. GALATIANS CHAPTER 6:7 SAYS
GOD IS NOT MOCKED, WHAT A MAN SOWS
HE SHALL REAP. AND I HAD SOWN SO
MUCH GOOD SEED, SO MANY GOOD THINGS. AND YOU KNOW,
ALL OF A SUDDEN, I GOT ANGRY. I STOOD UP AND I SCREAMED. I SCREAMED AND
I SAID, “DEVIL, YOU’RE A LIAR! YOU’RE GOING TO BE SORRY
YOU EVER TOUCHED ME! I’M GOING TO MAKE YOU
PAY FOR THIS!” AND AT THAT MOMENT, THAT
PIVOTAL MOMENT, I’M AT A POINT WHATEVER
HAPPENS I’M GOING TO SERVE GOD. YOU KNOW, JOB SAID,
“THOUGH HE SLAY ME, YET WILL I SERVE
HIM.” I SAID, “GOD I WILL SERVE YOU. IF IT COSTS MY LIFE, I
WILL SERVE YOU!” I WANT TO ENCOURAGE
VIEWERS OUT THERE. MAYBE YOU’RE GOING
THROUGH A DIFFICULT TIME. MAYBE YOU’VE STARTED
OFF GOOD AND THINGS ARE FALLING APART. I WANT TO TELL
YOU, RIGHT NOW. GOD IS A FAITHFUL GOD. GOD IS NOT MOCKED. WHAT YOU SOW
YOU WILL REAP. YOU KNOW, GOD IS A
FAITHFUL AND A GOOD GOD. GOD’S A GOD OF
RESTORATION. AND YOU KNOW WHAT? FROM THAT POINT, DONNA,
I PREACHED HARDER. I WENT OUT TO THE
DARKEST AREAS AMONGST THE ABORIGINAL, THE
TRIBAL PEOPLE, AND PREACHED THE GOSPEL. I’D LIKE FOR YOU TO TAKE
JUST A MOMENT BEFORE WE LEAVE AND PRAY FOR
THOSE THAT ARE WATCHING. JM: THAT WOULD BE
A GREAT PRIVILEGE. RIGHT NOW, I WANT TO
PRAY FOR YOU RIGHT NOW. I WANT TO PRAY
FOR YOU, RIGHT NOW. YOU KNOW, MIRACLES
ARE NORMAL. YOU KNOW, ORIGINALLY WE
WERE ON TV IN THE UK AND I PRAYED OVER THE AIR AND ON
DIFFERENT RADIO PROGRAMS; PEOPLE WERE GETTING HEALED
RIGHT ACROSS THE NATION. ONE LADY WAS
SEMI-DISABLED, LYING IN HER BED. AS I WAS PRAYING
OVER THE AIR WAVES, SHE JUST STOOD UP AND
HER DAUGHTER WAS AMAZED. GOD HEALED HER. YOU KNOW, RIGHT
NOW AS I PRAY, THE POWER OF GOD IS
GOING TO FLOW THROUGH THE SCREEN AND GOD’S
GOING TO HEAL YOU. I’M GOING TO
PRAY RIGHT NOW. ALL I ASK IS THAT IS
