Sid Roth - Miracles Exploded When He Discovered THIS Secret
Big confusion about miracles. Some believe in miracles. Some think God is finished with miracles. Others believe in miracles but seldom see them. One sleepless night, my guest, who saw no miracles, was given access to the realm of miracles. That erased all doubt. It erased all confusion.
Sid Roth: Welcome! Our most important guest, Holy Spirit, we know You're here already. We feel Your presence. Thank You, Holy Spirit. We acknowledge that not only are You here, but You're taking over this entire broadcast. Let it be right from the Throne of Heaven. My guest, Frankie Mazzapica, had never experienced the healing power of God operating through him until recently. Frankie, what triggered the realm of miracles?
Frankie Mazzapica: You know, Sid, God has appointments and such a unique way of introducing the Holy Spirit and miracles to people. I was going to sleep one night, and it was about midnight. I cannot fall asleep, and I thought to myself, "I'm going to download a book". I saw a cover of a book called "Power of God," and it was by Charles Finney. I didn't go to sleep until 3 o'clock in the morning. And he started off his book, in Luke 24:49, he said, "When Jesus told the disciples, go to Jerusalem and wait until you receive the promise of the Father, the endowment of power". And at that moment, I realized, I think out of my excitement, I jumped into ministry without waiting for the endowment of power, and after I read that book, my faith went up. My prayer life went up, and I began to believe that, yes, anyone can receive this endowment of power, and that's when I started believing.
Sid Roth: There was a woman.
Frankie Mazzapica: Her name was Lana.
Sid Roth: Yeah.
Frankie Mazzapica: Yes.
Sid Roth: Tell me about Lana.
Frankie Mazzapica: So I had only been pastoring our church for a little while. My wife and I planted our church. There was this lady in our church. She was a single mother. She was 41 years old, and I'll never forget. She called me up, and I went to the hospital to visit her. And she says, "I just found out I have stage IV cancer". And she had never smoked a cigarette in her life. There was no reason for that cancer to be inside of her. And I told the Lord, "I know you're going to heal her because she's a single mom, and she's got a daughter of 12-year-old little girl. I know You're going to heal her". And we prayed, and we prayed, and I told her, "You just stay strong. I know you're not strong enough to pray. I'll do the praying". And as much as I prayed, I was heartbroken. I was heartbroken because in spite of all the times that I prayed, I even checked myself into a hotel just to pray. She still passed away. And I thought to myself, "God, I am tired of asking You to guide the hands of a doctor. I'm tired of asking You for that. I know You can heal them. Where is the gap"? And then I realized at that moment that there's a difference between being a Christian and being a... having the power of God in you as a Christian that can ignite miracles. And that's when I said, "I am going to pursue this power and do exactly what the disciples did". They waited until they were filled with the power before they began the great commission.
Sid Roth: Well, Randy Clark, who has verified more miracles than anyone I know, he really goes out of his way to verify these miracles, says about you, Frankie, that you are the hungriest man for God he ever met. You called out to his place one day, and what happened?
Frankie Mazzapica: Well, I started looking for pastors and ministers that were moving in the power of the Spirit and seeing healings, and I came across a YouTube channel where Dr. Randy was on, and he was talking about miracles. And he was talking about miracles like they happen every day. And they were happening all the time for him. So I called up his ministry, and I left a voicemail. And I said, "My name is Frankie Mazzapica. I pastor a church in the Woodlands, Texas. I just want 1 hour of his time. I'll fly anywhere in the country. I'll start on time. I'll end on time. I'll have my questions ready". And I sat down with him.
Sid Roth: By the way, you see how hungry he was for God? That you can just hear that in the phone message he left.
Frankie Mazzapica: Yeah. I just, I needed to talk to someone that had already experienced what I was longing to experience. I sat down, and my first question was, "Can you be a Christian but yet still need the power of God"? And he just smiled at me, and I've learned that if anyone older than 60 years old smiles at you, they know something you don't know. Right? Kind of like how you're smiling at me right now, so I got to learn from you. But then he said, "Look, I want to bring you to Brazil, and it'll answer all your questions. And you'll begin to move in power, and you'll see miracles". And I followed him all the way to Brazil.
Sid Roth: Now, you actually prayed for people in Brazil, and did they experience miracles?
Frankie Mazzapica: Yes. And you know what? My faith was so low at the time, I was hanging on to Dr. Randy's faith.
Sid Roth: Mm-hmm.
Frankie Mazzapica: He said, "Pray for them. They'll be healed". And he prayed for me, and so the first person I prayed for, I laid my hand. He was playing soccer, and he had fractured bones in his feet. I laid my hands, and I said, "In the Name of Jesus, bones go back where they're supposed to be". And they started going back under my fingers. And I only had less than a grain of salt of faith, and the Lord just said, "Frankie, you've been crying out long enough. Today's your moment". And then Dr. Randy said, "Look, I prayed for you. You received an impartation. I want you to go pray for all your prayer partners at your church". And do you know, more miracles and healings happened through our prayer partners than even through me, and that is just a confirmation that anyone can walk through that and experience the power of God.
Sid Roth: What would you say was one main fact you heard that the light bulb went on in your head? Or you just were obedient to what Randy said because you figured he knew what he was talking about?
Frankie Mazzapica: So I've been in the ministry for 25 years, full-time ministry, and what I had always done is, when I pray for someone for healing, and they don't get healed, then I just say, "Hey, I'm going to continue to believe. I'm going to continue to believe with you," and I was done. Dr. Randy said, "Hey, Frankie. When you pray for a person, and they don't get healed, pray for them again"! And that thought never crossed my mind.
Sid Roth: I'll tell you what. How would you like to see Frankie pray for a blind person that got his eyesight back? We captured it on video. Be right back.
Sid Roth: Frankie, you were so frustrated, and all of a sudden, it's like a switch was turned on. And you're praying, and people are having miracles all over the place. Before we actually show a miracle taking place before your very eyes, set it up. This was in Costa Rica. Tell me about it.
Frankie Mazzapica: Yes. One of our prayer partners, they have a home in Costa Rica. And they said, "Hey, look, we have a lot of friends in Costa Rica. None of them have ever seen the power of God. They don't even know... In fact, they're Catholic"! And I just thought, "Well, this is going to be fun". And so I went there, and it's my belief that you cry out in private, and you take risks in public. So I cried out. "God, You've got to be there. I know You love them". So I showed up to the house, and we're... There was probably 30 people there. And I'm sharing the Gospel of Yeshua, and I said, "We're going to go for healing tonight because anywhere Jesus was, anywhere where our Messiah was, people got healed". And he's here tonight. And so we were about to go for healing, and this guy raises his hand, and he says, "Can Yeshua heal my eyesight"? And I said, "Yes, He can".
Sid Roth: When you said that, was there a lot of trepidation behind the scene, the facade of what they see and hear? Were you nervous? Something so big. Maybe why couldn't it be a headache?
Frankie Mazzapica: Trepidation is probably not strong enough of a word. I was scared.
Sid Roth: Okay.
Frankie Mazzapica: I was so scared. I felt a circle of sweat on my back, okay? I was so scared. And so he came forward, and I was praying for him, and he didn't get healed. I said, "Can you see"? "No". Uh-huh. Well, I'm going to pray for him again. "Can you see"? "No". And I'm like, "I don't know how many times I can do this". And I could feel the little bit of faith in the room... And in the room, they weren't Christians. They didn't believe in Jesus as our Messiah. I hadn't preached that yet, but I knew Scriptures that if they saw miracles... People were drawn to Jesus first from the miracles, and then they believed. And I thought, "God, if You can heal this man's eyes, everybody in the room will begin to believe". I prayed for him a third time, and all of a sudden, he starts blinking. I said, "Can you see"? He goes, "No, I can't". And I said, "Well, you're about to see in 1 minute". And faith just burst up. He couldn't see, but I said, "You're about to see right now in the Name of Jesus, our Messiah, now"! And I snapped my fingers, and...
Sid Roth: Stop.
Frankie Mazzapica: Yes?
Sid Roth: I want you not to finish that story.
Frankie Mazzapica: Okay.
Sid Roth: I want you to see the video before your very eyes.
Sid Roth: See, we were feeling that miracle with you on that video. You've written a new book, and I am so excited about this, but I want to know the story behind the story. Why did you write this new book?
Frankie Mazzapica: Well, I titled the book, "Your Divine Invitation" because I sincerely believe, I know I said this earlier, but I sincerely believe that everyone has a divine invitation to move in healings and miracles. And I asked the Lord before I saw the first miracle, I said, "Lord, will You please use me as an example of someone who's seen no miracles at all and then begins to start seeing miracles"? And so when I began to see it, I started realizing that the Holy Spirit was leading me through the Scriptures and showing me what Jesus was doing. And then when I grasped it and I understood it, I thought to myself, "I need to share the process, the practical steps that I took so that everyone can take these practical steps". And one of them, if we're going to pray, we need to pray fervently or don't pray at all. Because Charles Spurgeon said it best. He said, "Prayer without fervency is like hunting with a dead dog". That's it.
Sid Roth: There's so many that you brought out that I've been praying for years.
Frankie Mazzapica: Yeah.
Sid Roth: But there's things that I have learned. For instance, I like this line, "Be too desperate to stop".
Frankie Mazzapica: Yes.
Sid Roth: Tell me about that.
Frankie Mazzapica: There's certain things that can cause desperation. Number one is if you get exposed to what's possible, then that can cause you to be desperate. And I just want to just look into the camera just for a moment, and I want to say, "The only reason why you're watching this show". There's so many shows on TV! But you're watching this show right now because you're most likely drawn to the name of the show, "It's Supernatural"! And the reason why you're drawn to the name of the show is because God's pulling you towards himself to move in the supernatural. And while we were watching that video, I just had this word of knowledge, and a word of knowledge is when the Lord just gives you a spark, a thought that says, "Okay, this is what I want to do right now," and I just had this thought that some of you, you're having ringing in your ears, and it's tormenting you, and I believe that when I pray for you right now, that that ringing is going to stop. And I want to say this as well. Before I pray for you, I want you to notice, I'm going to pray a commanding prayer because that's how Jesus prayed. So in the Name of Jesus, that ringing, stop now in the Name of Jesus. Your inner ear, your middle ear or your outer ear, be healed now in the Name of Jesus, our Messiah.
Sid Roth: Frankie is fully expecting you to have a miracle and for you to be equipped to pray for others to have miracles. Sound good? It does to me. Be right back.
Sid Roth: About 50 years ago, I had the greatest miracle that ever happened in my life, and I'll make you a promise. I'm going to pray right now, and you will have the greatest miracle that ever happened in your life. Knowing God, having God, the creator of the universe, live inside of you, have Him direct your life? There's nothing that's a close second. Many of you believe in Jesus. Many don't. But if you'll say this prayer and mean it to the best of your ability, even if you believe in Jesus, you may not know Him. You may not have had experiential knowledge with Him. Repeat out loud right after me: "Dear God, I'm a sinner. I'm so sorry. I believe the Blood of Jesus washes away all of my sins. And I am clean, because Jesus died to make me clean. And now that I'm clean, Jesus, come and live inside of me. Let me know You. I make You my Lord and Savior". Frankie, pray.
Frankie Mazzapica: Yes. As I'm praying for you, I believe that miracles and healings are going to ignite in your soul. Holy Spirit, right now, begin to build their confidence and give them boldness now to step out, to lay their hand on someone and say, "In the Name of Jesus, our Messiah". Give them boldness. And, Lord, right now, I speak into their life that they will see fruit, they will see signs, and they will see You move. And I rebuke discouragement or distraction. Walk boldly as you move forward in healings and miracles because it's coming through you now in the Name of Jesus.
Sid Roth: And while he was praying, God also gave me words of knowledge, a wrist is healed. If you have a pain or any discomfort in your wrist, you broke it, whatever, just start moving it. You'll see it move right into... There's something about a little finger going on right now, and a hip is being held, and a back is being healed. Boy, there's such a flow. You probably could run into these words of knowledge... You hearing anything?
Frankie Mazzapica: Yes, I just, I feel like there's someone's right eye, just someone's right eye. And I don't want to get too specific, but it's just this pain behind your eye, and just like Sid said, if you step out in an action, just start blinking it, or cover your good eye and just stare through the eye that you're challenging with or just blink it. I'm telling you now, or even by faith, lay your fingers on your eye and say, "Thank You, Jesus," and you'll be healed right now. I believe that, and I know it to be true. In Jesus' Name.
Sid Roth: God is so good! And no more superstars! We already have a superstar! It's Messiah in you, the Hope of Glory, and what is impossible for Messiah? Nothing!
