DR. MORRIS CERULLO... A PROPHET TO THE NATIONS
God has used Dr. Cerullo to pioneer overseas ministries and open many countries that have been considered closed to the Gospel. His ministry is accompanied by a manifestation of God's miracle power. In his early years of ministry throughout Latin America, he faced tremendous opposition. He was arrested and detained many times for preaching the Gospel and praying for the sick.
In 1965, when Dr. Cerullo first went to Argentina, the country was almost completely closed to the Gospel. Due to the fusion of church and state, every time there was an attempt to conduct an evangelistic campaign there was tremendous opposition, often resulting in persecution.
During a crusade in 1965 in Mar Del Plata, Argentina, there were so many miracles of healing the College of Doctors issued a complaint accusing Dr. Cerullo of practicing medicine without a license and ordered his arrest. Despite the fact a warrant was issued for his arrest, he continued to minister nightly under a heavy anointing with hundreds of people being saved and healed. The police met him at his hotel, arrested him and took him to jail. After intensive interrogation, he was released in time to conduct the last night of the crusade.
The impact of these early crusades spread across Argentina and was the turning point in evangelization, not only in Mar Del Plata and Rosario but also in the cities and villages throughout the country.
Many of the ministers that attended those crusades and were trained in the Schools of Ministry in Buenos Aires in 1969 and Rosario in 1972, had their lives changed as they saw, for the first time, a powerful demonstration of the supernatural power of God. Today many of them have large churches and ministries that are impacting their nations for God.
Beginning in 1970 and continuing for fourteen consecutive years, Morris prophesied that the Iron Curtain would come down. He stood in the Royal Albert Hall in Great Britain, before approximately 7,000 people, and prophesied that all of Russia would open and the Berlin Wall would come down. On November 9, 1989, the Berlin Wall, separating East and West Germany for more than thirty years, was demolished. This led to the reunification of Germany on July 1, 1990. From November 1991 until April 1992, eighteen new nations were established. The door for evangelism throughout Russia and Europe swung wide open!
At this strategic point in 1990, as Russia was opening to the Gospel, God sent Dr. Cerullo to Moscow, Russia, where 10,000 people packed into the Izmyloski Sports Hall for the first public healing and evangelistic Miracle Crusade. This was the first crusade conducted in Moscow since the Bolshevik Revolution. Thousands of Russians were saved. Doors were opened for him to go on prime-time television where he led a potential 20,000,000 viewers in the sinners prayer and prayed for the sick.
In 1986 during the revolution in the Philippines, God sent Morris to Manila with a prophetic word to strengthen the church throughout the nation during a time of crisis. He trained more than 4,000 Nationals in a School of Ministry.
God spoke to Morris early in 1998 to prepare to go to Indonesia to conduct a seminar and crusade. From April 30 to May 1, 1998, he conducted meetings in Surabaya and Jakarta. In Surabaya, the auditorium was packed with 7,000 believers with 5,000 standing outside. In Jakarta, 12,000 packed the auditorium with 10,000 unable to get inside.
During the meetings, God gave Dr. Cerullo a special prophetic word for the Church in Indonesia. He told them, God is in control, not the government, not Satan but God. You don't need to worry. God is in control of His people.
Within a couple of weeks of that meeting Indonesia experienced economic and political disaster. Banks collapsed. Houses were stripped and burned, women were raped. Protests and riots erupted over government corruption and price increases. The situation escalated to total anarchy on May 14 with more than 200 people having been killed. God sent Morris ahead with a prophetic word to prepare the people for what was coming.
Dr. Morris Cerullo, President of Morris Cerullo World Evangelism, is a man with a heart that beats for reaching and winning souls. In more than 56 years of ministry, most of his time has been spent in worldwide evangelism, going to the nations preaching and teaching a powerful, uncompromised message of salvation, healing, and deliverance.
Thousands of Nationals and literally millions of people around the world have acknowledged Morris Cerullo as one of the leading apostles and prophets of the 20th century, now going into the 21st century.
Not only does God speak to him but his prophetic annunciations come with a special anointing of God's Presence. He received a divine, supernatural call from God to preach at the age of fifteen when God took him into the heavens and revealed Himself to him by a supernatural vision. From that time until now, Morris has never wavered in his commitment and zeal to fulfill the Great Commission to bring in a harvest of souls from around the world.
