Milton Green was a humble carpet cleaner who, after a terrible childhood with an abusive and violent father and a lifetime of drink and drugs, found himself unable to hold a conversation.
At the age of 43 Milton had a major heart attack and open heart surgery was attempted but Milton’s veins were found to be ‘like wood’ and ‘like the veins of a 90 year old man’. Doctors told Milton they were unable to do anything for him, so that basically he was sent home to die.
At that time Milton had not been married long, as he had married late, and his wife Joyce was a Christian. Milton felt suicidal, he felt his life was all but over and yet for many months was terrified to go to sleep in case he died and woke up in Hell. Milton prayed to be spared and repented of his wayward life and in the months that followed, Milton repeatedly petitioned God to save Him, and not to let him die.
Milton once told a journalist about his childhood and the journalist found it so difficult to believe he decided to visit the place Milton came from, where he found to his amazement that what he had been told was true. Milton’s hour long video testimony is on Youtube, linked to from the foot of this page.
Milton passed over more than 20 years ago but in his lifetime he was somewhat targeted, ostracized, and even hated by certain others, as a result of some of the things he said and the way he said them. Milton did not seek the approval of men, which is something people have a tendency to do, though the Bible tells us we ought not to. He speaks the truth in a straight-talking way and doesn’t mince words. Unlike so many he does have a great sense of true humour and sense of timing, such as when he says: “What’s the Greek for falling away” and the audience shout in unison: “Falling away!” Then he asks: “Are all Greeks saved?” He calls the body the “carton.” He will say something like: “Overcoming doesn’t mean going to church in the rain.” Or: “You got your scissors with you? Then when you see something you don’t like you can just cut it out.”
Milton is an ordinary yet extraordinary human being, and could not perhaps be called over-sophisticated, but then several of the Apostles were fishermen while the ‘learned’ men of the time plotted to murder Jesus.
After his heart attack, Milton went on to live another 15 years during which time he spoke at many seminars around the country, some lasting several days, and recorded many audios and videos, many of which are available on Youtube or on one click downloads at the foot of this blog. After his passing, Milton’s wife Joyce Green also recorded several excellent audios and videos which are available for download from the foot of this page or from Youtube.
Milton only wrote one book, shortly before he passed over, called “The Great Falling Away Today,” which is available free from a link at the foot of this page.
In his sermons, Milton explains simply how we can clearly discern the true gospel from the ‘doctrine of demons’ and separate ourselves from sin, evil and our satanic nature so we can begin to truly walk with God.
David Wilkerson said of Milton Green:
“I was first introduced to the ministry of Milton Green by our friend, Evangelist James Robison. He said, “You need to hear this man; his message is awesome. It has changed my life.” At the time, I was in no mood to hear him or listen to any of his tapes. I had heard rumors that he was teaching “strange delusions,” that all he talked about was demons and that “Spirit-filled believers could be possessed by them.” Others told me he misused the Word of God by spiritualizing everything.
“Recently I took the time to listen to his message. After the first message, I knew I was hearing a true word of repentance, holiness, and heart purity. After three messages, I was on my face before God, having been shattered by the hammer of God’s Word. No other message of repentance had so touched me. I am convinced God has called Milton Green to be one of those chosen vessels to bring the church back to repentance and purity. God has given him a strong message searing, searching, yet healing and uplifting.”
