Healing Testimony! – Revival on the River

The following is an amazing testimony from Revival on the River that was sent to us a few weeks ago. I was just re-reading the testimony and thought it would be something great to share. God is still a God of miracles. With HIM nothing is impossible! We saw God do so many amazing things including the miracles you will read about below.

“Last year at Revival on the River, a girl prayed with my mom for me and then the next day I had zero back pain.. that was amazing. This year’s Revival on the River, I got excited when Jessie Wilson started singing so my foot came out of my AFO. My mom went to find a worker or helper to ask if they had anymore of the wristbands they were throwing out. I really wanted one but I couldn’t walk down there in that large crowd. She then told the man about what happened to me with the brain aneurysm and stroke. The man said yes but before I get her one do you mind me praying for her. He came over to me with his girlfriend and his friend (they all 3 are apart of Teen Challenge). His friend and girlfriend were standing beside me praying and then he, Robert who my mom talked to was sitting below me, had his hands on my AFO and he was praying for healing in my left leg and in my arm. They all were so nice to me and I still talk to them on Facebook.

When he got through praying he went to get me the wristband and he threw in a Revival on the River T-Shirt also! After that we were getting ready to go home because my foot was hurting badly. When we started to leave this man reached his hand out and told me to come here. I didn’t know who it was but I knew he wouldn’t be a bad person so I went over to him and then recognized him. When I was in 5th grade I started going to church at Golden Acres. He was one of the people in charge of the youth. One day he had to be taken out in the ambulance and he never came back and I wondered why. He is in a wheelchair and there is always a constant pain for him from his waist up. He said that not a lot of people know whats wrong with him and he doesnt post it on Facebook because a few years ago a little 12 year old girl with blonde told him to never give up and she told him about her surviving a brain aneurysm and a stroke and even though its hard living with a disability, it proves that you are a fighter and you can do it. He just kept talkin about how I inspire him and that because of me and my words of encouragement made him not give up. That made me so happy to know that I helped him and inspire many. I was crying the whole time but Saturday morning, when I walked I no longer dragged my left foot, I was able to pick it up.

People say that prayer doesn’t work and that God isn’t real… Who saved me 7 years ago? How could on April 25, 2014 a lady pray with mom and then April 26 I had zero back pain. After I had back pain for a whole year I don’t think it would just stop, God stopped it. Just like April 24, 2015 A man prayed for me and and on April 25 I was able to pick my foot up instead of dragging it like I have had to do for 6 years no matter how many botox I have had. I have always dragged my leg because I couldn’t pick it up because it was paralyzed. Now I can use my leg because of God! “

Testimony — Arthritis Healed!

This past Sunday night I was outside the building after church when a man stopped a friend and I and asked us for some money. We told him that we didn’t have money to give him but would love to have him come eat with us. The man came inside with us and we were able to bless him with a few supplies that we had leftover from some Take the City outreaches we had done in the past. After giving him what we could I asked him if he had anything specifically we could pray for him about. He then told us that he had really bad pain in his hands from arthritis.

After talking to him I got together with a couple other people and we began to pray for God to heal his hands in Jesus name. As we began to pray I began to feel tingling all around my hands. It was like my hand had gone to sleep or something. I asked him if he felt any tingling and the man said he was feeling an unusual tingling as we prayed. After praying for about a minute we stopped and he said it felt much better but he still had a little bit of pain. We then prayed a second time and he said he began to feel that same tingling but it was even stronger than before.

After praying the second time we stopped and asked how his hands were. In total amazement and full of a sudden joy he told us that his hands were 100% pain free and that he could now clench his fist. He told us that beforehand he could not close his hands because the pain was so severe. It was amazing to see his excitement as he began to open and close his hands over and over again!

It never ever gets old seeing God do the impossible in peoples lives around me. I never stop feeling totally amazed when Jesus brings healing and hope into the most impossible situations. It’s astounding to think about the fact that Jesus is still alive and that HE is the same as He was two thousand years ago, today and in years from now. It’s such good news that the hope of the full gospel is a reality for each and every one of us today.

“You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.” Acts 10:38

Healing Testimony – Back healed! — Lakebottom Park

This past Sunday morning I was walking at this park I began taking to this man named James. After talking for a while I felt like God told me to ask if he had problems with his back. We prayed and God took all the pain away completely. After this video was shot we prayed for some other things and he began to cry. He looked at me with shock and said, “I never cry”. He then told me he just felt so overcome by gratitude for Gods love. He said he had never cried in front of anyone ever before but that today he couldn’t help it. God was showing James how amazing His love is!!!

16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” James 5:16

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved… they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” MARK 16 – Jesus speaking to His disciples. 

Word of Knowledge @ Lifepoint Church

I was talking to my good friend Keith Fountain today and he told me a really amazing story of something God did through him recently and I asked him to send me the testimony. It is so cool hearing how God is using His kids to release His Kingdom here on earth. God hasn’t made us to simply be sidelines followers of Jesus but rather to be on the field and doing the greater works that Jesus promised we would do in John 14. I thought this was a really cool example of how God can use us when we are willing to simply be obedient to the Holy Spirit.

Here is the story:

shoulder-bursitis1“On June 6th our family visited Lifepoint Church in Douglasville for the first time. We went home and talked about how much we enjoyed the service and we really wanted to go back. So we went back thatWednesday night and Sunday morning. On that Sunday morning during worship I felt the Holy Spirit begin to overwhelm me and bring me to a point of listening to His voice. I began to feel my left arm go numb from the shoulder down, and excruciating pain to begin to shoot down my arm. I knew that this was not for me, that this had to be an indication of something that someone in the service was going through. I asked the Holy Spirit to begin to reveal to me who this was for. His voice spoke to me and said that there was a lady in the service that was experiencing numbness in her left arm, and excruciating pain shooting to her fingers. I leaned over to the pastor and told him what I was experiencing. Immediately after I passed the word on to him, the pain in my arm left. I heard the Holy Spirit speak to me once again and tell me “tell the lady that today I will heal her arm completely in the name of Jesus.” The pastor remained in a state of worship but gave the word of knowledge to the congregation. There was one lady who stood up and came up to the front, she just happened to be the piano player. She came up and stood for prayer and I walked up behind her to pray for her. I told her what the Holy Spirit said to me and we began to pray over her. She immediately began to raise both arms, which she couldn’t do. She had been to doctor after doctor and they all told her that she was going to have to have surgery. She was actually going in the morning for a surgical consultation. She told me that when we began to pray for her that she felt a sensation like fire go through her arm, and that she had been having this problem now since the beginning of June and hasn’t been able to lift her arm since then. She is now 100% with complete feeling and sensation back in her left arm with no side effects.”
 

Testimony – Shoulder/ Elbow Healed!

Last thursday I was at a local Teen Challenge Thrift Store grand opening and saw God do something miraculous while waiting in line. I wanted to share this story because I really think it will be an encouragement to others to allow God to use them more in every day situations and also to show how amazing our God is!

The line at the grand opening was really long because so many people had come to see the new store and show support for Teen Challenge. I found a couple of items I liked and eventually got in the line knowing I would probably be waiting for quite some time. As I waited I started talking to the woman who was right in front of me. She began to share with me about her life, her kids and where she was from. Her name was Gladys. 

When I first began talking to her I felt like the Holy Spirit spoke to me in a quiet whisper and simply said the word, “Elbow.” I remember thinking to myself that maybe God was trying to tell me that I should pray for this woman’s elbow but thought that was just craziness or some weird idea I had. I hate to admit it but I kinda just ignored it and kept talking to this woman for the next 15 minutes or so. 

Suddenly while talking with her it’s as if the Holy Spirit got my attention and reminded me again with one simple word. The word he said was, “Elbow” and that was it. (It’s kinda funny looking back at it now…) I had no other clues or anything; just a simple word. So finally I got the hint and asked her with a smile if her elbow was hurting. She stopped with shock and said, “Yes! and my shoulder has been really bothering me too!” I told her I felt like God told me that her elbow was hurting and asked if I could maybe pray for her. At this moment the other shoppers around were just staring at me like I was a crazy person.

I put my hand on her shoulder and began to pray out loud. I commanded her shoulder in Jesus name to be healed and for all pain to leave. As I was praying I literally began to feel something underneath her skin move. Her shoulder did not move, her arm did not move… It was something in her skin that seemingly popped up and literally moved my hand. In shock I backed up and asked her, “Did you feel that???” She was shocked and told me yes. Then she began to move her arm around and started crying. She said that all the pain in her shoulder and elbow was completely gone!photo

Once that happened another woman who was also in line began to shout, “Thank you Jesus!!!” I began to agree with her and so did Gladys who had just been healed by God. Right there in this line, with everyone watching we all began to shout and praise God! We started to have “church” right there in that line and Jesus was made famous in front of everyone who was in that line. Afterwards she told me she was so thankful because now she could go home and get some work done. She told me that she was so blessed because she was reminded that God cared so much for her and that He saw every need that she had. 

And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well…

Czech Trip 14′ – 4 Guys from UK Saved in Prague

I just returned from a 10 day trip to the Czech Republic and had such an amazing time. It really is amazing how much God did in my own life and also all the things I was able to witness Him do in the lives of those we met while there. Over this next week or two I want to share a few testimonies and stories of different things that we saw God do and also share about random experiences I had while there.

Our whole team was able to spend a day in Prague which is the capitol of the Czech Republic and is one of the most beautiful cities in all of Europe. It is the only large city that was not impacted by the bombings of WWII which allows you to still enjoy all of the ancient architecture of the city. The times I got to spend in the city I was overwhelmed by how beautiful everything was…

At one point we got lost as we were wandering around the city and this guy who spoke english overheard our conversation and offered to help us with directions. We told him where we were trying to go and he began to lead us that way. He and three other friends began to lead us and tell us about their visit to the city. They had been in the city for a few days as they were traveling through Europe during their “Holiday” that summer. He told us about all the prostitutes and drugs offered to him around their hostile and even about how you can purchase “happy endings” for just an additional 10 Euro at a massage parlor that we walked by. They painted a really vivid picture of the life of that city for us as we followed them. It was eye opening to hear what they told us…

When we reached a place where they were planning to stop and eat we offered to pray for one of his friends with an arm brace before we left them. His friend was happy to receive prayer but kept insisting, “There’s now way… There’s now way… He (God) can’t…”

We prayed for him twice and he then took of his arm brace and began to look at us all with complete shock. He kept saying, “Bloody hell!” really loud and told us that his pain was completely gone. The food vendor behind us was watching and he was smiling and clapping when he realized the guy had been healed. It was so amazing to see God heal this guy even though he didn’t believe that God would do it for him! God is so compassionate and full of love.

Czech Teen Challenge Trip 2014-98

After we prayed for his friend we began to talk to the three other guys about Jesus and all of them were open to Him after seeing their friend miraculously healed. We asked if they wanted to give their lives to Jesus and all of them said quickly that they were ready. One of the guys had bruises all over his face from a blackout drunk he had the previous night and looked at us with a look of desperation for something to change. You could see a desire for hope in each of their eyes.

We stood there in the street and all 4 of them ended up giving their lives to Jesus before we left. It was so amazing to see how the Holy Spirit led them to us and then opened up the door for each of them to be saved. It was an unforgettable experience and is just one of SO many testimonies of things we saw God do while in the Czech Republic.

 

 

Testimony – Back Healed at TC in GA

A few weeks ago I had the privilege to go and minister at a Teen Challenge here in GA that helps adolescent boys. We had an amazing time together during that chapel service and saw God do many amazing things. After sharing with the guys I felt that the Lord told me that one of them had terrible back pain. I actually began to physically feel the pain in my own back as the Lord told me. I felt that we were to pray for this person. I stopped everything at that moment and asked if any of the boys had back pain in that particular area. Suddenly the boy sitting directly in front of where I was standing looked at me totally shocked. He stood up and said he had terrible pain in his back and was literally praying for God to help him with his back pain right as I began to ask the boy’s if anyone had pain in their backs. I then had some of the other guys come around him and we prayed for him and he was completely healed! It was not only a huge testimony for him but also all the other boys in that chapel meeting.

Here is the testimony in his own words:

“My name is J******… and I wanted to thank you for (the) healing in my back the night you came for our devotion… What made it even more amazing was that I was praying for my back at the same time you called me up for healing. Thank you…”

God is so good!!! He truly gets all the glory and the honor. He is doing amazing things right now in the earth and I love getting the opportunity to see him move in power.

Standing

As we live a life of faith we are called to stand. When we stand physically together in a worship service we are actually celebrating the glory of Christ’s resurrection that took place on the third day. Also, whenever we stand metaphorically in our lives we demonstrate the power of Christ’s resurrection and the re-birth that we can all encounter when we give up everything we have to follow Him.

standing boyResurrection (gk. anistemi) – is a word that describes the raising from the dead, the physical rising and also means the act or cause of being born. This word actually comes from two different root words. The first word it comes from is “ana” which means to be among or in the midst of something. The second root word is the greek word “histemi” which means to stand, stand firm or to rise. When we choose to stand in unison as a group of believers we are in the midst of standing or rising. When we stand we are memorializing the resurrection of Christ. We are also expressing the supernatural act of being born again in a physical way. Standing is an outward expression of the supernatural occurrence that takes place in every new believer at the time of salvation. When we stand together we do this in worship and commemoration of the rising of Christ and the rising of a new life that we now have in him.

The bible also talks a lot about standing in other ways and I believe that there are three great ways that in standing we can demonstrate the glory of Christ’s resurrection for all the world to see.

  1. Standing in the Gap –“I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land…” (Ezekiel 22:30)
    When we take time to stand in the gap for our families, cities and our nation through prayer and intercession we are bringing new life and resurrection to these situations. We are petitioning to see old, dead things brought to new life through the power and grace of God. The Lord is calling us to not merely talk about all the problems we see in our circumstances but rather to stand in the gap and bring heaven to earth in those situations. God is still looking today for people that will be willing to stand in the gap for cities and nations to see resurrection life come to even the most desperate situations.
  2. Standing Firm – “Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness.” (Eph 6:13-14)
    When we stand firm in the midst of trials and temptations we are displaying the glory of Christ’s resurrection for all the world to see. We do this by holding onto the truth and not allowing ourselves to be intimidated by lies. We also stand firm by walking in the righteousness of Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit and His empowering grace. We maintain our position and keep standing by staying in the truth and guard our hearts by living a life of righteousness. When we are able to stand firm even in the midst of the most terrifying of storms, we are displaying the power of Christ’s resurrection to those around us.
  3. Standing for Justice – He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind” (Luke 4:18-19)
    When we stand for justice we are contending for a resurrection and re-establishment of God’s original purpose and plan. We stand for justice when we demonstrate God’s goodness and make the wrong things right. In Mark 16 Jesus leaves us with a final commission to preach the good news, to heal the sick, and see the dead come back to life. When we allow God to use our lives, by his grace, to bring His kingdom then we bring His justice to the earth. When we stand for justice by rescuing the captives, healing the sick and seeing people set free from bondage then our lives display the glory of the resurrection of Christ Jesus.

Standing is not always easy but it is something that we are empowered to do here on earth by God’s grace. Even if you cannot physically stand today, you have the capacity to stand in other ways for the Lord. Let us all allow ourselves to stand in the gap, stand firm in righteousness and stand for justice in all that we do so that our lives can display the glory of Christ’s resurrection.

Testimony – Healings at SWFL Teen Challenge

Tonight was an unbelievable night here in Ft. Myers florida where we have stopped for about a day to do some media work and ministry. Tonight we had a service with the guys and girls from the program and saw some things that were so amazing! Tonight God’s presence was so thick and powerful and many lives (including my own) were impacted. There were many miracles and healing’s that happened and I simply want to record them here. I don’t have time because its late and I’m exhausted to elaborate much on them but just want to record them here! To God be all the glory for everything listed below…

  1. Knees healed- we prayed for at least 2-3 men who had knee pain that were healed by God when the men from the TC program gathered around and prayed for them.
  2. Back healed- I had a word of knowledge for mid back pain. One young man stood up and said he had it. I went and prayed with him and the pain moved to his upper back. We then prayed for any spirit of infirmity to leave. We also prayed for deliverance from a spirit of depression and not only was he set free and healed of all back pain but was filled with joy and then went to the front to share his testimony. Everyone was shocked that he shared b/c of how he would usually act!
  3. TMJ/ Lockjaw- I got a word of knowledge for TMJ. The ladies in the back prayed for 2 ladies who had it. Both of them were totally healed and were filled with joy.
  4. Neck – A man was healed of neck pain when we prayed
  5. Shoulder- A man was dealing with an afflicting spirit. as we prayed his pain moved down his arm and into his hand. The last time we prayed all the pain left completely and he was healed. (This same man then prayed healing over another man afterwards)
  6. Stomach Sickness – A young man missed the service and afterwards the guys came and grabbed me to come with them to pray for the sick guy. He had horrible pain and couldn’t eat anything. He was stuck in his bed. As we prayed he felt a tingling sensation and then heat all over his body. Then all the pain left his stomach and he was filled with the peace of God. We left and he was seemingly asleep and resting after we had finished praying.— Then about 1 hour later this same young man comes into the chapel where I was talking and said he had gotten up and eaten an entire meal! He said that all the pain was gone and that he was already healed! Also, the Lord gave him a word about his dream life that really encouraged him in a lot of things he had been thinking about. 

There are many other things that happened tonight, including people being set free through forgiveness and receiving God’s overwhelming joy. One man wept like he had never cried before in front of everyone for at least 15 minutes while God ministered to him powerfully. It was amazing to just be a part of what God was doing in the room. It was amazing to see God using the students there to pray for others and not just me. God gets all the glory and ALL the credit. He is the healer, the redeemer and the one who sets us free. I am so thankful for what happened tonight!

Amazing Testimony! -Neck Healed

Yesterday at our Take the City outreach we took teams all over our city to express God’s love. This is just one of many amazing miracles that took place yesterday.

One exciting thing about this testimony is that this woman received 80% of her healing before I even prayed for her. When I asked her about her neck she shuddered and got chills all over her body. I then told her the Lord was gonna heal her neck. Just by expressing this word her neck already went from a pain level of 4-5 to a 1. Then when we prayed all the pain was gone and her neck had full mobility again!

God is so good!
