Mary Colbert Rebukes Spirit of Death, Sees God Work a Miracle

by | Jan 11, 2021 | Spiritual Warfare

In these days of rising numbers related to the COVID-19 pandemic, prayer leader Mary Colbert wants us to remember one critical factor: God, not man, is in charge of life and death.

This truth came home to her, Mary, wife of bestselling author Dr. Don Colbert, tells Dr. Steve Greene on an episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network, when she saw His power work in a woman’s life after doctors had told her family there was no hope. The woman was a patient in her husband’s practice, Mary says, and “a God-fearing, godly woman” who had suffered a sudden brain aneurysm.

The woman’s daughter called the Colberts and begged them to come and pray over her mother in the hospital, where she had lain in a coma for seven days. Doctors were asking the family to sign papers to remove life support, Mary says. She and Don went to the hospital and prayed in the chapel, asking God, “Is this woman’s time up?”

“And we both clearly heard, ‘No,'” Mary says. They next went to her room in ICU, where, Mary says, she looked like a corpse. But the Colberts stood on what the Lord had said. “I took her hand and I said to the daughter, ‘Do you believe in the resurrection power of Jesus Christ?’

“She said, ‘Yes, I do. Of course I do,'” Mary reports.

“Well, I want you to know, your mother is still here, and she is not going to die. … Whether you unplug that machine or you don’t unplug that machine, you have no control over your mom’s days,” Mary told the woman. “He controls her days, not you, not man. He holds this woman’s life in his hands. No man can take her from Him.”

“And I said, ‘I believe those who are His, that you cannot take their life,” she adds. “‘They lay it down, but you can’t take it.’ So I told her, ‘You cannot take her life. Because if you turn that machine off, and God wants her to live, she’s going to keep breathing.'”

Colbert says she went over and laid hands on the woman and rebuked the spirit of death from her body, commanding it to leave. “And then I told her, ‘I know you’re here; do not be afraid,'” she says. “‘I know you’re still here. You’re not going to die. Just be at peace.’ I said, ‘In three days, the Lord’s going to wake you up, and you’re going to be just fine. That’s what He told me.'”

Mary says the woman’s daughter looked at her as if she had lost her mind. Listen to the entire episode of Greenelines here to hear the full story of the miracle that happened next. {eoa}
