Lead Pastor of V1 Church, Mike Signorelli was ministering online for a digital deliverance session when God challenged him to pray for the sicknesses that had no medical cure. Signorelli called out Multiple Sclerosis and was later contacted by a woman on staff at a Baptist church in Texas. She had been suffering from MS when she was listening to the live video, but when Signorelli called out the disease, she received the prayer and felt something different.
The woman went to a doctor to get testing and they told her the MS had “resolved” and she no longer had it. We sat down with Signorelli for an exclusive Charisma News interview to talk about discerning on when to pray for deliverance, healing or walking out self discipline.
“We’re not trying to dismiss discipline and replace discipline with deliverance,” Signorelli says. “At the same time there is a spiritual realm and demons are real.” In the interview he talks about how crucial it is for Christians to walk in discernment to know how to pray.
There are some people who have lower back pain and God wants to heal them, other’s need deliverance and for Signorelli, at one point in his own life he realized he needed more self discipline. “I had chronic lower back pain, I’ve lost 40 pounds in the last year and I went to weeks of physical therapy and I don’t have back pain anymore,” he says.
When you come across a friend, family member or a divine connection and you are going to pray for them, understanding whose authority you are operating in is key. “The demon’s aren’t obeying you, they are obeying the consequences of the kingdom. They are responding to the one we are coming on behalf of,” Signorelli says.
Proverbs 13:12 says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.” You may be believing for a healing today, but as you see those around you being healed your heart can become sick.
Tune in to the full interview, Signorelli is praying for you, for complete healing, restoration and deliverance from any demonic oppression.
