Atheist Sees Glorious Vision Gets Saved and Sings Opera
In 2003, I was an atheist. One night while asleep, I was awoken to a glorious vision of beauty! Before my eyes was the back of Jesus Christ all aglow.He had long, golden brown, wavy hair passed His shoulders. He was dressed in a long, flowing, white garment. I saw a royal shield with tribal symbols to my left.The kingdom of God had come to rescue me and my son! Peace filled the room and I had revelation knowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord and the Bible was God's Holy Word! I was healed of Lyme disease which had been untreated for 10 years and was eventually treated with little success. I knew that I had purpose and that someone always loved me. I turned from living a life of sin and turned to the Lord the lover of my soul! Immediately God filled me with His Spirit. He gave me His heart for the lost. He also gave me His eyes to see opportunities to reach them. Immediately I became a bold witness and started street ministry.
When I was translated out of the kingdom of darkness with all its shackles, which included severe fatigue for over 10 years, I was received into the Kingdom of God with wholeness ready for service to my King! I was so thrilled the Spirit quickened my mortal body and caused these old dry bones to raise! I danced like King David danced leaping for joy in church, home, yard. At the time, I visited my unsaved father and praise danced from one side of the giant field to the other. I testified to my father that God had touched me! My heart leaped for joy for the one who died for me! God also put a song in my heart! Never thinking I could sing very well and having been too exhausted for years to even sing with strength, God put it on my heart to sing, God Bless America, to acquaintances. One day I was so overjoyed, I sang opera to my grandmother. She laughed so hard she just about fell off the couch! Praise God! One spark from God can change your world right side up! I will end w ith the song written in 1963."He touched me, oh He touched me, and oh the joy that floods my soul! Something happened and now I know, He touched me and made me whole."
The Lord Uses Mother’s Cake to Save Household---Again
Most Sunday School students have heard of Elisha’s encounter with the women who had only a little meal and oil in her house. She was going to use her meager supply, to make a small cake, so she and her son could eat supposedly one last meal and die.
Elisha, a prophet of God, told that women to make him a little cake and let him eat first. Little did she know that her obedience and faith would yield her salvation of life and multiplication of resources for all her household. It would also serve as a story of great encouragement and trust for multitudes in the year to come.
Lauren C from New Jersey had a Holy Ghost encounter that involved a meal, cake, and gas that saved her family from possible death.
I woke up one am in the morning to the smell of gas. I was still not fully conscious so I went back to sleep. I woke up again at three am, this time I was fully awoke. I sat there for a couple of minutes and it came to me that I didn't eat the cake that I bought for dinner. I got up and went into the kitchen.
As soon as I stepped in the kitchen strong order of gas hit me. I walked over to the stove, and the range nob was turned on to high, but the pilot was out. Immediately, I opened all the windows and doors and went outside because I was having trouble breathing.
I began to pray and the Lord the Holy Spirit woke me up. Prior to that day, I got up five am to go pick my son up. On the ride, the Lord told me to pray in the Spirit and say no weapon formed against me shall prosper. Immediately, I began to speak. The morning before the incident, I ask myself, why did the Lord give me those directions?
Later on that evening, I had a decision of whether to put my last $5 in the tank for work or stop at the store in get a snack for the children. I chose to save the money for gas. However at the last minute before reaching my house, I passed the street, went to the store, and got the cake. It was the same cake that I woke up for to eat.
Decision to Believe - Rev Albert Daily
I have come to the point in my life where I had to make a decision to believe what Jesus spoke as recorded in John 14:12-13 saying: 12"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son". I also had to come to believe and receive Mark 16:17-18 for me as well : 17 "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover".
The decision came after I heard the Lord ask me if I believed that I could do greater works than He did? I initially though about the impossibility of this but was then led to think that greater works could never be done by me or with my own ability but would only be able to be done supernaturally in His strength and power. Since I knew that the Holy Spirit was in me after giving my life to Jesus and that I had already been baptized in the Holy Spirit and fire, I knew that it was possible because of Him in me!
Well, since then, the Lord has allowed me to pray for 10 people from 1 year old to 60 years of age that had cancer before I laid hands on them and prayed for them. After praying, the Lord healed them all of cancer with manifestations of healing either the very next day or within a week later! He has also allowed me to pray for countless others that had either paralysis, asthma including my own son, pains in various parts of their bodies and other infirmities and the Lord healed them all either immediately or over time!
In addition, the Lord has allowed me to pray for people that needed deliverance from depression, demonic attack and self with manifestations of deliverance in each praying opportunity! The Lord also put in my heart and spirit on this past Good Friday 2015 to ask for prayer requests from everyone in each of my social media outlets (text, email and Facebook). Those that either texted, emailed or Facebook private messaged me prayer requests of which many were for healing, ALL received healing from Jesus after the text, email or Facebook responses were sent to them! The Lord also had me call some people that responded and healed them while I was on the phone with them! God has truly been faithful and has showed Himself mighty in my life!!!
Today, the Lord is using me teach and train other Born Again/Christ Followers/Believers to believe that John 14:12 and Mark 16:17-18 is applicable for them as well. But, and I do note but, these things and blessings should NEVER supersede our desire to have a loving, solid relationship with Jesus 1st and foremost! It is through our relationship with Him that makes all things possible after belief and faith kicks in.
I encourage everyone who reads this testimony to 1st be grateful for the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus made for each and every one of us so that we did not have to, believe in the love and power of the Lord Jesus Christ, trust that He still heals, delivers, sets captives free and answers prayer today and know that He is looking to show Himself mighty in those that believe that they can do greater works and knowing that signs, miracles and wonders really do follow those that believe! Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might, not yours!!!
Grace and peace,

Jimmie Holloway ‘Shoulder Testimony’ - Hearing and Listening to the Holy Spirit
As my wife and I got ourselves ready to venture out for the day, my shoulder was bothering me. When we arrived at our destination my shoulder was bothering me even more. So as we were walking around in the store, my arm felt like I needed to put it in a sling and it felt so bad that I wanted to go back to the car and sit down and before I could leave the place, I heard the Holy Spirit say…”Raise your hands above your head and give thanks.” And as I was raising my hands and giving thanks, people around me began to look at me very weirdly but I didn’t care, I did what the Holy Spirit told me to do. And in that instance, the pain in my shoulder went away, through the obedience of the Holy Spirit.
Just not another day at the DMV - Frank Sasso - A History with God Ministries
I was waiting with my number to be called to counter #11. As I'm waiting, I see a police officer standing against a wall. He looked like one of the Royal Guards in London that tourists always try and make smile or laugh. He looked like he was made out of stone. The following is the conversation I had with him.
Frank: "Officer, you look pretty serious, man."
Officer: "Can I help you, sir?"
Frank: Yes, it would really help me if you would smile just a little bit."
The corner of the officer's mouth started to curl up ever so slightly.
Frank: "C'mon, c'mon!"
The officer smiled.
Frank: "Officer, seriously, why are you so serious?"
Officer: "It's just my face."
Frank: "Really? Do you have a wife?"
Frank: "Does she ever tell you that you look too serious?"
Officer: "All the time, all the time."
Frank: "Are you filled with the Holy Spirit?"
Officer: "The what?"
Frank: "The Holy Spirit! C'mon, y'know, the Holy Spirit? You don't know who that is? Really? He's my best friend!"
Officer: "Oh really?"
Frank: "Yeah, He's my best friend."
Officer: "Do you hear voices, too?"
Frank: "You wouldn't believe it if I told you!"
We both start laughing.
Frank: "You have no idea what you just said!"
I was wearing my ministry vest at the time and he started asking me what the vest said and what it meant. I describe the ministry and say...
Frank: "Listen, in all seriousness. Here's a hypothetical situation. I'm not saying this would happen, but if you were to die today, if this was your last day on earth, where do you think you'd end up? Where would you go?"
Frank: "Why? Why heaven?"
Officer: "I'm a cop. I'm automatically going to heaven. I serve and protect. I put my life on the line for the people I serve"
Frank: "Hey, look. I thank God for cops. You do. You DO put your life on the line for us. Just like Jesus did. He put his life on the line for all of us. You two have a lot in common. But, is that why you'd get into heaven? Because you're a cop? Well, then what about people who aren't cops? What happens to them? See, it doesn't matter if you're a cop or not. The book I read, y'know, the Bible...?"
Frank: "The Bible says that EVERYONE has sinned, all have sinned, and the price of that, or the wages some say, the price of that is death, BUT, eternal life is a free gift! And if you confess the name of Jesus and believe in your heart that He died for those sins, YOUR sins, you'll be saved from going to hell, and you'll then go non-stop to heaven when you leave here! He died for you so that you MIGHT be saved, meaning you have something to do with getting saved."
Frank: "So, without that, you're NOT going to heaven, you're going to hell."
Officer: "Hmmm. That's interesting."
Frank: "Say this prayer with me - 'Father in heaven....."
Officer: "Woah, woah, woah. I'm-I'm not, I'm not praying."
Frank: "Y'know. You're right. Say this then, say this - 'Father in heaven..."
Officer: "Father in heaven..."
I led him to the Lord right there in DMV. After we said the prayer with me, I gave him one of our ministry cards. On the back of the card is a website we produced called, "That Next Step". On it are a collection of videos featuring our board of directors, my wife Christina, and me. We explain what your next step is after you get saved.
Officer: (taking the card and reading it) "I'm gonna check this out. This is kinda cool. I never had a church person hand me a business card before! This has definitely gotten my attention."
Frank: "Amen, my man. Amen"
God’s Hand on Our Wedding–-by Debra Stout
About a month before our wedding, my grandfather insisted he wanted to give us our wedding present due to his heart condition. I guess you could say the large heart he shared all of his life was wearing out. My fiancée Karen and I honored his request, sat with him and chatted, and received our first wedding gift. This was a special time for us.
A party was being prepared in my honor at my mother and father’s house on rehearsal night before our wedding in November. Mom bustled back and forth in the kitchen for two days. She made traditional meatballs, string bean and potato salad, and savory sausage and peppers for approximately forty friends and family. The aroma permeated the house. My grandmother and grandfather lived in their house also.
Karen, the bridal party, and I were at the church rehearsing for our wedding day. My friends and family were at the house waiting for me to come back so we could eat and fellowship together.
After the rehearsal, I stayed behind and prayed everything would go well the next day. Karen and the priest were at the entrance of the church chatting. I found myself praying near the altar for my grandfather who was suffering with a heart condition. The Holy Spirit informed me he would be taking my grandfather and we had a conversation. I stressed, “If you have to take him at least let him see us get married. He’s looking forward to seeing us get married and he’s waited a long time.” Then I said to myself, what am I saying?
I drove home pleased with rehearsal and we had a fantastic party which started when I arrived. My mother and the others waited. My grandfather, who we called Baba, was the center of attention as he loved people. He was uplifted and enjoying the festivities. I was glad to see him so happy.
Wedding day was here and I could hardly wait. Everyone hustled to get dressed and hurry to the church including my grandmother and Baba. My heart leaped in anticipation of this big day. I was so happy God answered my prayer. I glanced back briefly and saw my grandmother and Baba overjoyed. We exchanged vows and everyone was excited. I was relieved everything went well.
After the ceremony my wife and I beamed as we received our guests at the church front door. Everyone gave us their well wishes. My Grandmother and Baba gave us their blessing too. They left the church and walked to the parking lot where Baba grew worse. He experienced a massive heart attack and collapsed to the ground.
I was out in the street directing traffic for the ambulance while my new bride was in the church crying. Baba’s death was kept from the bridal party and me on our special day and we found out the bad news later at the house. God gave me a good wife who postponed our honeymoon.
November 26 was the happiest day of my life and most certainly one of the saddest days of my life. Although this was a shock for me, my family, and friends on my wedding day, I believe this was proof there is a God, not that I ever doubted. God’s hand was on our wedding and my prayer was certainly answered.

God's Unexpected Blessing - By Debra Stout
I was excited today, as I quietly mentioned to Debbie I just got an unexpected blessing and she listened closely. My name is Donna and I'm a school bus driver. My veterinarian's office called me and explained an anonymous donor had given me $200 towards my account. I was surprised because I hadn't prayed or asked anyone for the funds. I asked the woman, "are you sure?"
I discussed this blessing with my husband, who agreed we should accept the money and apply it towards an immediate issue with fleas at our house. Bus drivers along with some teachers do not get paid during the summer while school isn't in full session and our resources were down. Now our cats will feel better and we'll experience more peace.
God gets the glory for this blessing and I pray to God every day.
Mom Jones' Faith-Walk - By Debra Stout
I was surprised when the Lord spoke to me in church. Pastor Ray (Barnard) preached about having strong faith.
God has blessed me with 90 years and I'm known as Mom Jones, a great-great- great- great-grandmother. I took my time walking with my cane to the back entrance of the church for our service. Then I walked down the hall, past the bookstore, through the lobby, and down the aisle to my favorite seat, about five to six rows from the altar. I really needed to sit down and settled in for the service. While listening closely, I heard Pastor Ray say something like 'put your faith out there.' I thought about my cane, was embarrassed, and tried to hide it in the pew. If I believed in God, and had strong faith I should be able to walk without it.
During the service, a presence came over me, I jumped up, and started walking by myself towards the altar without my cane. I turned around, got my cane, and walked towards the altar again. By this time all eyes were on me wondering what I was doing in the middle of service. None of the ushers came to help me go to the altar or tried stopping me.
All of a sudden I raised my cane, and threw it at the altar. I turned around very happy, and walked back to my seat praising God and thanking him. I felt so relieved. I just it lying there. Pastor ray was pleasantly surprised as well as everyone else. They'll probably never forget this. Someone tried to give my cane back to me and I waved, "No, I don't want it." I haven't touched it since. Later, Harry, a friend from church, recalled the time I threw my cane.
I didn't have a miracle like the woman in the Bible who hemmorhaged for years and touched the hem of Jesus garment to get healed but I had trouble walking. If He could help her He could help me too and He did.
Prosperous Life After Prison & Heroin
Last Winter I was working a temp job to earn extra income. One day while I was working, I overheard a co-worker talking to another co-worker about how he was in prison for seventeen years. We were working near each other so I was listening to what he was saying.
During the course of his conversation he said he gave his life to Jesus Christ while in prison. I went up to him and just started asking him questions. I felt comfortable approaching him because we are in the same age range, and he enjoys sharing his testimony. I told him that I am a Christian and I am part of a prison ministry. It was near the end of our shift when we started talking, so he said we going to talk some more tomorrow.
When I went to work the next day, GOD coordinated for us to be working together on the same project. All that day we talked about the Bible, prison life, and life in general. He shared with me that he was a heroin addict before going to prison. He shared in detail how he came to Jesus Christ in the prison chapel during a service.
I was impressed on how knowledgeable he is of the Bible, and the deeper meanings of various scriptures. The job lasted only a few weeks, and we decided to stay in contact by phone. He became stressed out over the fact he couldn't find a job due to his prison record. Then someone told me about a job where they are hiring immediately. I applied to the company and was hired.
I called my friend and told him this company is hiring. I picked him up from the River Line and took him to complete an application, and he was hired. On the day he was hired, we were riding back to the train he looked at me and began thanking me. He said the reason I got this job is because of the name of Jesus. You didn't know me but because I was talking about Jesus; you got to know me. You did not have to call me once you got hired at this job, but you showed what kind of Christian you are by your actions not just by yours words.
He thanked me while he emphasized that it was because of Jesus Christ that his life is changed, and he will never return to drugs or the street life. I thank GOD for directing me to The Breath Of Life Ministry. I thank GOD for using me in his work. I thank GOD for Jesus Christ shedding his blood on the cross so we can have eternal life.
Minister Tim Calhoun
Five Dollar Lunch Become Full Meal at the Master Touch
One day my friend, Tammy invited me to an Ever Increasing Faith Conference. Dr. Frederick K. C. Price would be teaching/preaching the Word of God at the Nassau Coliseum. We needed to load the bus in Newark, NJ to travel to Long Island, NY. I said I would go even though I felt some apprehension. I was not comfortable traveling with only $10. I was four months pregnant. I knew I would need to eat and I am not myself when I am pregnant and hungry.
I believed in my heart that if I went I would be blessed by the Word. I was thankful to be going and Tammy had gifted me the ticket to attend the conference.
When we arrived at the departure location for the bus. I wanted to spend $5 to get something to eat before we were to board the bus. However, I was not able to do this. We left as soon as we arrived.
So, I am getting disappointed. We arrived at the venue and located our seats. I wanted to find something to eat before the event started. There were no vendors located outside the arena. I walked over to the hotel across from the arena. I was so hungry by this time. I got to the restaurant in the hotel and I find out that burger was $7.
I didn't want to spend $7 on a burger. I would only have $3 to place in the offering. So, I am totally discouraged by this time.
We returned to the arena to enjoy the conference. Offering time came and I heard the Spirit of God tell me to put the whole $10 in the offering. I consoled myself, my raging hunger, and disappointment by believing I could eat as soon as I get home.
While traveling hone, the bus breaks down, I became very discouraged not knowing when I would be able to eat. The bus driver announced that another bus would be arriving in an hour.
My friend, asks me if I wanted to get something to eat at the diner, a little bit, up the road . I didn't have any more money. She confirmed that her friend was treating us to the meal. I enjoyed an early breakfast. I learned that you can't beat God giving
Woman healed from Issue of Blood while demonstrating Woman with Issue of Blood.
Holy Spirit plays himself in illustrative Sermon Woman healed of Issue of Blood.
It was during Sunday morning service at Family Life Christian Fellowship formerly Open Door Christian fellowship---Pastors Larry & Yvonne Clark.
Pastor Larry was teaching that morning on miracles via the healing ministry of Jesus. I was so ecstatic of my miracle only remember one parable he shared. It was the woman with the issue of blood from the gospel of Mark 5:24-34. The Holy Spirit led pastor to demonstrate that morning. Hallelujah, thank God for the Holy Spirit. I was the participant.
Pastor did not know I had pressed my way to service that morning. I was in severe pain, also feeling embarrassed due to all the protection I had to wear to come out that day.
Pastor Larry proceeded to say, “Sis. Lynny (what most people at my church call me) stand up.”
I hesitated a little due to how I felt. Pastor Larry repeated saying, “Stand up Sis. Lynny and move out in the isle.”
My flesh was saying, “Oh my God is he serious.”
However, feeling more embarrassed. I begin to take on the character of the women. I identified myself with her as Pastor Larry asked me to bend over to demonstrate the woman conceivable weakness and pain from the disease.
I slumped forward slightly, still bothered by what was actually going on in my body. To which, pastor directed, saying, “You know that women was bent over way more than that.”
Our story became a little different. We were in a new generation of time. I was compelled to Jesus who was in Pastor Larry and Pastor Larry was compelled to Jesus who was in me.
In a bent position, pastor began to quote Mark 5 about Jesus realizing the power had gone out from Him. Then, Pastor laid hands on me and this consuming wave of heat hit my body from the top of my head to the soles of my feet.
The pain was gone immediately. I never had pain like that again. Now, this pain had been going on for years. Praise god!!!!! Hallelujah!!!!! I went home and checked myself. Things begin to take a shift in my body--- in what goes on in the female body. There were changes going on over the next few months with substantial decrease in bleeding.
Now sometimes, Satan tries to come up here and there. Then, I just begin to think about or give my testimony. Praise God I am healed. I didn't have any surgeries, but I have the Word---the Word of God (Mark 5:24-34 & 1 Peter 2:24).
I believe God had me to share this for believers, including myself, to stand boldly for Him with our testimony. As we seek Him first, to be use by Him, He'll tell us when, how, and what to share for that anointed, appointed time. Also, our testimony reminds us, if God is for us, nothing else is impossible. Glory to you Abba Father---in Jesus name!
Man Finds Money in Guitar after listening to Christian podast
Hey! I just listened to the podcast where Frank said his mate found money in his guitar! After hearing that, I asked God how come I can't find money like that? Aren't I blessed too? I went to get my mail about an hour later and in addition to my mail was, what I thought was just another Christmas card. I opened it, and it was a Christmas card but this card had 500 euros in it! I quickly looked at the envelope to see the return address and THERE WAS NONE! I said, Lord I'm sorry!! I'll never ask you a question like that again! God is so good. This is a great Christmas!–From History With God Radio www.AhistorywithGod.com
Was hanging out before a prayer meeting with my brothers in the Lord, Tyler and Kennedy. Kennedy excused himself to get his guitar, came back and started playing.

COPD - Glenn–From History With God Radio www.AhistorywithGod.com
Women Healed Of CPOD by the Power of God
My mother smoked since she was 17 years old. She's 68 now and 6 years ago her doctors told her that she has COPD which is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It's a type of lung disease people who smoke can get and it gets worse over a period of time. Anyway, she has stopped smoking after learning that it's the fourth leading cause of death. She prayed that God would spare her life because she repented of smoking. So, she quit smoking because of fear. I told her that God is not able to hear prayers that are prayed in fear. I told her that she has a right to be healed totally because of the blood of Jesus already healing her of ALL of her diseases. I have been forwarding her the daily devotional emails (I hope that's ok) and she has totally changed the way she prays, knowing it pleases God to pray with confidence in his love for her. She has been praying the word for the greatest Christmas ever and has gotten the best gift already. 4 days ago, after a series of intense tests, she has been given a clean bill of health from her doctor. She hasn't been having any symptoms of COPD and her lungs are crystal clear as if she never smoked!!!! Thanks for never being fearful of speaking God's truth!–From History With God Radio www.AhistorywithGod.com
Crazed Christian’s Conviction Convinces Brother of Confidence In Christ And Increases Pay Check
My sister is born again and I am too but not like she is. She's crazed about it. She showed me this 30 days to Christmas article on this website and asked me to do it with her. Ok, I'll give this prayer thing a try. My sister (who loves this ministry by the way) said to not just 'try' it like it was a foreign food,,. but to just simply confess it and receive it into my heart as God's will for me every day. That it was to bless me so that I could also go and bless others and that God would show me the value in it. Fine. She calls me EVERY morning at 6:00 to read it along with me over the phone then preaches to me on speaker about it while I get ready for work. It's a good thing I'm not married, because that would make for a quick divorce. So, I did that and it's been a little over a week now. I was just about to give up yesterday morning after what felt like the hundredth time reciting this prayer thing. I went into work and my supervisor called me into her office. It seems promotions were in order last year but because of the economy, the company held back on giving them.
She informed me that my company (which I cannot reveal, sorry) has done so well the last 2 quarters, that it was decided that 3 of the employees were being given a promotion now! AND I AM ONE OF THEM! Starting immediately, (today) I begin training for a position that in no way am I qualified for, but management seems to have faith in me, and has not only doubled my pay but has made it effective immediately BACK pay from last year's promotion that should have happened.
The paycheck I receive this Thursday, will be more than I normally make in a year.
Looks like it'll be the greatest Christmas for me! I haven't even told my sister yet. I really don't want to honestly. It'll just encourage her - lol! Thank you sincerely and Merry Christmas!–From History With God Radio www.AhistorywithGod.com
I confess this word every day and I just received in the mail a $1,500 check for money the government owed me that I didn't even know about AND I found $500 dollars that I thought I lost over the summer!!!! $2,000 dollars!!!!!!! I might just travel somewhere for Christmas this year!! Thank you and I love the Godcasts!! Have a great Christmas and New Year!–From History With God Radio www.AhistorywithGod.com

Overpaid and glad about it! - Richard
I'm writing this in for my neighbor who doesn't understand iTunes. She gets the devotions every day and has been speaking the 30-day word and had an experience she would like to share. She owed $2,000 to her utility company and they were days away from turning her power off and at the last minute, they informed her that she didn't owe it anymore because of a credit she was due. She had been paying approximately $100 more than she owed a month for more than a year and the over payments were enough to cover the $2,000. They hadn't caught it before because the over payments were going toward a different customer's account. That customer now owes them the money she did AND she received a promotion at her job as well. She's very happy because now she can enjoy the extra income without having to give it to her utility company.–From History With God Radio www.AhistorywithGod.com
Back with my Brother - Dorothy
My brother and I have not been speaking for 4 years because of a stupid fight. I can't even tell you what we fought about. (and neither can he) I have been praying for a reconciliation now for 4 years and nothing. I get the daily message on email and listen to the Godcasts. When I saw the 30 day prayer to say every day, I hopped right on it and started saying it every day. I gave special attention to the part where it said 'Relationships completely restored'. 2 days ago I prayed and then called my brother. Up until then, he wouldn't even answer the phone and he'd make believe he wasn't home when I would go over to his house. Anyway, I called him and he answered! He told me that, just before I called, he had just prayed to God for another chance with me. That he was sorry for not acting like a good brother and that he would have the right words to say to me. He also asked God that if He made me call him right then, he promised he would answer his phone trusting God would give him the right words to say to me. Well, the best part of this is not only did we reconcile and reconnect but I led him to the Lord right in his own kitchen!!! This is the guy that would have NEVER become a 'Jesus nut' like me. We both live alone and the rest of our family is long since passed on. It's only been a couple of days, but he already LOOKS like a different person! We're going to my church's Christmas service together and even talking about getting our own house. THIS REALLY IS THE GREATEST AND MOST JOYFUL CHRISTMAS EVER!!!!!!! THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS PRAYER!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU, LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!From History With God Radio www.AhistorywithGod.com
Rich, Healthy, and Happy! - Ramiro
There was a time when it would really anger me when someone would say that God wants you to be rich, healthy and happy. I HATED hearing that especially because I was poor, sick, and angry. If I wasn't rich, healthy and happy I thought "how could God want me to be rich, healthy and happy if I'm not that?" I had a very big ego and could never fathom that there was anything I needed to change, because if God is all-powerful, and He wanted me to be rich, healthy and happy, then He would make it so in my life. Well, it wasn't until 3 years ago, that I actually understood that God already provided riches, health, and happiness and I have a part to play in bringing into my life. I never got that until 3 years ago. Now I have plenty of money in the bank, no longer deal with diabetes, and I am very happy. This podcast reinforces the entire salvation package for me every week and I am very thankful for that.

God Moves Heals Woman’s Bowels
At a church in Kentucky, there was lady who looked to be in her late thirties, who had a rare deformity. She never had a bowel movement in her life. After prayer, she went to the ladies room and returned to the sanctuary with her hand over her mouth, in amazement & embarrassment, she went [to the bathroom on her own].---Sent via text by Missionary Harry Jackson
Blind Eyes Open
Avalon Williams was totally blind. In 1971, she woke up one morning with her head swollen and puss running down her face. “They told me I lost my eyes sight and I would never see again,” said Avalon.
She had attended to her kids who had just received vaccinations. Apparently she hadn’t washed her hands and accidently rubbed her eyes
“But thank God for the power of God, she continued. The late Bishop Leah Thomas came down and prayed for me. They said one week later I was running around University Hospital of Pennsylvania like I was crazy. Jesus healed me so I know the power of God is real.”
She was about 20 years old when it happened. She recalled being so scared as they were leading her around. “You know when you are use to seeing and you wake up blind. And I was a backslider.
But I told the Lord, if He gave me my sight, I would serve Him, because I didn’t want to be blind raising my children.”
She furthered recalled having one child at the time and actually pregnant with another. “I told the Lord, if he’d just give me a chance, I would serve him. I have been serving him ever since.
She is from Philadelphia PA and attends Beulah Tabernacle-- Bishop Keith Thomas
Four Year Old’s Miracle Surgeon
Elizabeth Norman is from Philadelphia PA she attends Freedom Christian Bible Fellowship. Her lifelong testimony is when her son was 4 years old and had a glass partition fall on the bridge of his nose.
“It could have blinded him said Elizabeth. We rushed him to the nearest hospital which was an all-women’s hospital. Miraculously, there just so happened to be a plastic surgeon present to do the surgery. The plastic surgeon normal would not have been there. This a women’s hospital that does women stuff.”
Women Medical is the name of the hospital he was rushed to. It closed today, but it was right there when it was needed.
A very thankful mother, Elizabeth further explained that the point injury was from the inside point of his left eye to the inside point of his right eye. The potential was there for her son to be blinded in both eyes.
Additionally she testified, “Because of his complexion, normally his injuries would keloid. Thankfully, there was a plastic surgeon there. The work he did on his eye, you could never tell that there was a scar. It did not keloid and I am thankful of that every time I see him. That’s my testimony for life. My son is 32 years old now and he’s a wonderful young man.
And yes, I attributed this to the hand of God being there the exact moment. There should not have been a plastic surgeon at that hospital—praise him!”
Deaf from Birth Ear Opened
In Detroit, Michigan at Born To Win Church, the pastor daughter was deaf in her right ear since birth. The doctors have been treating her and said she would never be able to hear out of that ear. After prayer the people went wild in praise to God as his daughter testified she could hear her mother call her name in that ear.---sent via text by Missionary Harry Jackson
Mother Saved on Mother’s Day after being Warned by God
Leslie—Philadelphia—Household of Faith---Bishop Michael Brokenorough, her mother 21+ had an aneurism. It didn’t break. She knew about for a couple of years. Mother’s Day she was sitting in church. She said she had a pain in her head. After service, she went down to her hospital. Admitting her, they did surgery on it 4 days later. They reported, it was about to break.
And God has saved her. She didn’t have any kind of damage. Her mom is fine now. This happened in February 2013. a lot of people don’t survive this type of surgery explained Leslie. She said, a lot of people don’t survive a broken aneurism in the brain.
“So my testimony is my mother is alive and well. She has minimal side effects and for that she’s going therapy. She’s healthy and strong.”
Leslie attributed this to God’s intervention because of the warning in church. “Who else, she said, what other others source could have warned her, gave her the mind to go action, and not to go home?”
Hey remember the testimony is in the Telling. Have you told yours yet? The overcoming faith that comes from the testimony is in the hearing. Has someone heard yours yet?
The Cross at the Crossroad - Lyndora High
I love to give honor to God---the All Knowing All Seeing God, who protects and watches over us.
My testimony begins, one day, when I was driving my truck. My destination was Glassboro NJ, five miles away from home. I came upon a crossroad, where it is difficult to see oncoming traffic. This has been an issue for a year, so I usually exercise caution at that point. However, this particular time my judgment was a little off, so I attempted to cross. Just as I was about to cross, I glanced in my driver side mirror and in the back of the truck bed there was a cross that was hanging out of the back of the truck!
I quickly braked and as I stopped, a truck came buzzing by at full speed. Had I pulled out into the road, it would have been a total wreck. There was not a physical cross hanging from the bed of my truck. What I saw must have manifested from the spirit realm.
God used that to protect me. I know God’s hand was in that and I praise Him for how he protected me. I believe that an angel was truly on guard that day transforming himself into a cross…Maybe? Undoubtedly I know, God is an awesome wonder.
Testimony: From 0 to Christ
When I was in high school, I became a professing agnostic. I thought that love was the answer to all the world's problems. It was at the height of the hippie era—free love; flower power. I tried to be loving and kind. On the outside I may have appeared that way, but on the inside, I was very unloving and intolerant.
When I went away to college, my philosophy of life changed from being loving to being popular. It seemed to me that girls who dated the most, partied the most, and drank the most were the most popular. Now, on a scale from 1-10, I was an undebatable 0 in all areas. So, I set out to change. I dated, I partied, and I drank—and I became popular. I joined a sorority and I was getting straight A's.
But, I wasn't happy. I seemed to have the world by the tail. The truth was I felt like someone had me by the tail—swinging me in all directions. I took a course in Eastern Religions looking for answers. I went to midnight mass. My heart was searching for something. I later learned that what I was experiencing was summed up by Pascal, the great French physicist and philosopher, when he said, "There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be satisfied by any created thing, but only by God, the creator."
During this time, a friend shared with me that Christianity wasn't a list of things to do and a list of things not to do. It was a relationship with a living God. She said that "Christian" really means "Christ in one"—Christ living in me, giving me strength and hope and love. Christ would not only love me, but He would give me the power to love others.
I had a lot of questions about the Bible and especially miracles. As I kept searching, I realized that the resurrection of Christ was the biggest miracle of all. As I looked into the historical evidence for the resurrection of Jesus, I became convinced that it was true. Why would the disciples die martyrs' deaths for a lie?
So, one night in church, I told God that I didn't have all the answers—I probably never would—but I was going to believe what the Bible said, and I was going to give my life to Him. It was the best decision I ever made. That night, I found what I was searching for. My life gained direction, purpose and meaning.
I once again believe that love is the answer to all the world's problems; and, now, I am connected to the source of that love—Jesus Christ. The Bible describes God's love in I Corinthians 13. It says, "Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love is not boastful or arrogant, does not act rudely; it does not try to get its own way; it is not easily provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered. It does not rejoice in wrong doing but rejoices whenever truth wins out. If you love someone, you will be loyal to him no matter what the cost. You will always believe in him, always think the best of him and always stand your ground in defending him. Love never fails.
" There was no way that I could have ever loved people with that kind of love, on my own. I am only able to love others in that way, as I allow God to love them through me. The source of true love, Jesus Christ, now lives in me and He can live in you, too!
*My Eyes Are Totally Healed.
A few years ago I was buffeted with an unusual eye condition that doctors could not explain or treat. Unable to look to the left or right; wearing dark glasses indoors; forced to keep blinds closed even on overcast days.
Reading was almost impossible because of how the condition affected eye function. What’s worse I was set to take a two-day medical board exam with hundreds of questions which required pouring through volumes to prepare. It wasn’t just textbooks, I couldn't read any text without having to stop after just a few lines.
I was in the middle of applying for a residency job that had already been delayed for a lengthy amount of time and everything was at a standstill because of this anomalous eye disorder. Doctors seemed to think it might have been related to an autoimmune illness called Hashimoto's Disease which I had, but after extensive testing still could not give me a definitive diagnosis. At a loss on what to do, only the Lord could help me with this problem.
I worked up the nerve to contact the Sweet Breads Ministries prayer line where Brother Bruce Van Natta was kind enough to pray over my eye issue, my difficult job situation, as well as finances. I also requested prayer over attending the Bay Revival as my family had come against me for my interest in it.
Within days a job opportunity emerged and a week later, after Brother Van Natta prayed a second time over the phone, I picked up the Bible and was immediately able to read without stopping. I was also able to get back to studying and eventually completed my exam.
Since that time I’ve had the chance to attend Revival three times, and have also had the privilege of attending Brother Sid Roth’s meeting when he was in the area. There’s been breakthrough [for me] in healing, miraculous doors opening, and household financial increase.
My parents have even gone back to church after over twenty-five years of not attending. The good work that the Lord began with my job situation I believe will also be completed because Jesus never forsakes us.
There is power in His Word and He hears our prayers. Don't give up because God is right around the corner with the deliverance that you need!
God Provides Miracle Coffee Through Those Who Wait (Starbucks Testimony)
So, Christina and I were visiting our friend, Albina. We were enjoying a delicious lunch and as we were nearing the end of our visit, the Lord says to me, "Get the coffee". I said, "Get the coffee, Lord? What does that mean?" He then says, "I'll show you on the way home." Normally, my wife is with me but she had her car and I had mine and she wasn't going straight home. So, I put our address into my GPS and started home.
I'm about 5 minutes into the drive when the Lord says to me, "Make a left here". I make a left. My GPS is protesting and says in exasperation, "Re-calculating route!" Not really exasperated, but I like to imagine my GPS is human. (Psalm 25:4 - Show me the path where I should walk, O LORD; point out the right road for me to follow.) Ok, so, I make the left and continue straight saying, "Lord, this is not the way back. Where are you taking me?" He says, "Make a right...HERE." I turn the wheel sharply and enter the parking lot of Starbucks! "Ooooohhhhh, 'Get the coffee', right", I say. I get out of my car and start walking in. "But Lord, I don't have any money on me."
He says nothing.
I walk in. I browse the merchandise waiting for a word, a direction, something. Nothing. I figured I'll stand in line. Still nothing. I'm next! What do I say?!? The barista behind the counter asks me what I would like.
"I'm here for, um... the coffee", I say with a questioning tone.
"Oh", he says, "YOU'RE Frank."
"Yeah", I say. Not really too impressed as FRANK is embroidered on my jacket in big yellow letters. Kind of hard to miss.
"Hang on a sec", he goes to the back and then comes out with a brown Starbucks paper bag. On it was written in black magic marker, "Hold for FRANK".
"Here ya go", he says as he hands me the bag. I open the paper bag and there is a pound and a half of Christmas blend coffee. (One of my favs!)
"Thanks. Um, who left this for me?", I ask.
"Oh, I don't know", the barista says.
"Is the manager here?", I ask. The barista goes and gets the manager. When the manager came out, I asked her who left the bag for me. She didn't know because it was sitting there before she arrived at the store this morning. I asked her to take a picture with me, for this blog, and she said, "Well, I think you should take the picture with Samantha. She was the one who brought it to my attention."
Samantha then stands next to me, I give a thumbs up, the manger snaps the picture, and I take my coffee and leave. But not first without telling them that, "God just provided coffee for me today through you guys!" and told them the story. They were astonished, laughed, and were totally into it.
I pray someone comes and waters that seed.
Matthew 6:31-34 - “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ (Even coffee? Even coffee.) or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Jonah Like Salvation by 2 Amphibian Creatures
Its seems God is still doing Jonah like sea rescues. Pastor David and Debbie Thompson from Kentucky have a miracle at sea to report. Their son was swimming in the ocean in Florida with others when a rip current pulled him out to sea.
Although he kept swimming and swimming he was unable to break free of the current. While his wife and children watched from the shore, and now completely exhausted he said, “I didn’t want my family to see me die.”
So he called out to God. He said, “Lord, you’re going to have to help me. I can’t go any further. I am going down for the last time.”
Suddenly two amphibian -like creatures emerged and took him to shore and laid him on the beach. They then disappeared.
Abscessed Gum Healed by Holy Water
On Friday, my gums were hurting real bad so, I took a Motrin 800 and went to sleep. I woke up on Saturday morning and my face was swollen (see BEFORE picture). I was in a lot of pain and I didn’t know what to do, so I took antibiotics and more Motrin throughout the day. I was up all night tossing and turning in pain.
On Sunday morning, my face was still swollen and I was still in pain. I wasn't going to go to church but I finally decided to go. My church was having a guest speakers that day; Frank and Christina Sasso from A History with God Ministries.
My mom got them to pray for me. Christina touched my face, prayed, and then Frank said to “go home, and gargle with salt water. That salt water is your point of contact with Christina's prayer. Before you go to sleep, you will be pain free!”
Well, I was in pain the rest of the day. My face was still swollen around 6:00pm. I gargled with the salt water and as soon as I laid down, the problem in my mouth “popped” and the swelling went down instantly. It hurt for a second then the pain went away!
Now, I’m pain free and didn’t even need to go to the dentist! I just want to thank God for His healing and thank Mr. and Mrs. Sasso for the prayer! God is good and He answers prayers!
Lost Keys - Minnie S.
Last Friday, I had a very important meeting to attend. I was to entertain a group of people. When it was time to leave I could not find my car keys. I searched the house without success. However, I remembered that I had an extra car key. I used that key to go to the meeting and the same key to return. When I returned, I took the key out of the ignition and put the key on my dresser. I continued to look for the set of keys that I usually use and still could not find them My son had been to my house the night before and I thought he may have taken them by mistake. I called him and he did not have them. He said, just pray to the Lord and he will show you where your keys are. I prayed to the Lord and asked Him to help me find my keys. I continued to look and still could not find them. I then went to look in my car again and the keys were in the ignition. I give God all the glory and thank Him with all my heart.
Breast Cancer? I Think Not! - Albina M.
After my dad died in December of 2004, my mom came to live with me. One day as I was washing her clothes, I noticed a lot of blood on her shirt. I asked her, “Mom, where did this blood come from?” She lifted her shirt to show me. Her breast was completely covered in blood, and when I touched it, it felt like a banana that had been cut into thirds. It was a tumor that was growing outside of her flesh and resembled a huge, oozing scab (similar to when a kid falls, skins his knee and pulls the scab off when it's trying to heal).
I immediately took her to the doctor and he quickly scheduled a mastectomy for 2 days later. He diagnosed her with “aggressive Stage 4 breast cancer”.
I stood on the Lord's promises and claimed her healing in the name of Jesus. I also thanked Him for working, through the doctor's hands, while she was in surgery. I felt a peace rising up in me and I knew and trusted that she would be well. I immediately thanked God for healing her, confessed that He is my mother’s doctor and that she would live and not die.
I also thanked Him for being with her throughout her chemotherapy, and I claimed, in the name of Jesus, that “not a hair would fall from her head, nor would she vomit her food”. Well, praise God, she did not lose her hair or vomit her food, AT ALL. All her mammograms since then have come back healthy and normal. At the visit with the medical oncologist last week, he said her blood work looked good and he released her from his care.
I share this testimony with you so that you will know that NOTHING is impossible with God, and His word is true and final.
Appearance of a Cross - George K.
A few nights after I was saved, a shadow of a cross appeared on my bedroom window shade. It seemed to have come from the outside light filtering through the window framework. Although there were eight panes of glass in this window, the frame did not look like a cross, but somehow a 4-foot-high cross appeared on the shade. It was startling and dramatic. I got the feeling Jesus was saying to me, "I heard your prayer, and I'm with you always." No matter how I tried different lighting, at different times of the day and night, I could never duplicate the cross that appeared.
Dolphins! - Christina S.
Over the summer, a generous friend invited all the women of our church to a beach house she had rented. I was able to go and spend time with her and another friend lounging on the sand.
It was a beautiful September day; brisk, but sunny. As we sat down in our beach chairs I said, "Lord, I want to see dolphins!"
Now, as we sat and talked I kept my eyes trained on the horizon because I FULLY expected to see dolphins. Why? Because I asked to see dolphins! I asked EXPECTING!
She said, "Oh, I wish they were closer".
Well, sure enough I see it! That tell-tale fin and arc through the water, right below the horizon line. Not just one but a pair. Then again, then more. I immediately shouted to my friend, "Dolphin!"
Then the fun began.
They started swimming over the break of the waves toward the shore. Then as a wave rose high you could see light through it and one single dolphin rode right through that wave riding parallel with the shore. We could see his whole body speeding through the wave. It was breath-taking!
As this school passed, (and there must have been hundreds) further down a couple actually jumped out of the water. Just like they do at Seaworld. They were just playing and being joyful.
I know this was a wonderful gift from God who knows me and the things that bring me such joy.
God wants us to enjoy life as we serve Him and follow Him. He already gave us everything we need. Joy, prosperity, health, salvation, purpose. He wants our lives to be full of all these things as we keep Him as our first love.
God is always good!
Religious Women Gets Saved At Age 90
By LaTonya Clark—Publication Assistant The Glory Cloud publications
Bill (not his real name), a Christian and a co worker of mine, shared this testimony with me.
His mother was in the hospital and wasn’t doing well. He delivers newspapers and had asked me to sub for him, so he could be with his mother. About a week later his mother had passed away. So, he had asked me again to fill in for him day of the funeral.
I had talked to him a couple days after the funeral and asked how he was doing. He sounded down. He said, it was a little hard on him but he was ok. I asked him was his mother saved. He perked up a little and said, “It is truly amazing what happened with my mother.”
His mother was a devout Catholic for over 90 years. She had her rosary beads and prayed to Mary every day. When he got saved, he told his mother about it and tried to get her saved. She didn’t want to hear it. He many time tried over the years.
Leading up to her passing, she was dealing with Dementia. His mother was hospitalized, because of the disease, and on this occasion, his sister-in-law, who had just gotten saved, went to visit. She had her Bible with her and was reading scriptures to his mother. And for a new Christian, noted Bill, she was whipping the scriptures out at her.
Suddenly, His mother turned to her and said, “I want to know this Jesus.” She repeated the sinner’s prayer and got saved. He said to me, not that God gave her the Dementia, but he knew how to use it, to bring her to receive Christ.
Bill also shared that it was his fear that his mother would die and not know Jesus. It was like a great weight was lifted off of him. By the time he finished that testimony, his tone changed to excitement, because he knew where his mother was.
Out of Debt through the Wisdom of the Holy Ghost
Cynthia Scott NJ
The Holy Spirit has been talking to me for some time about getting out of debt. Well, I finally heard what He said. He showed me how to pay off my credit cards. I continued paying my tithes and offerings first and then paid off five credit cards from 10/2012 through 12/2012, cut them up, closed the accounts, sending out confirmation letters. I have two to go and I feel free. I have done it my way too long, and look where it got me, a borrower and servant to the lender.
Free Indeed—The Testimony of A Preacher
By Terrence Clark
I remember it being so dark in my room late at night that I couldn’t see my hands in front of face. The street, which we lived on, in the small country town I lived, had no street lights. And no one new about the nightmares, I was having. I was only 11 years old. I had gotten over the bed wetting some years earlier, but now I hold myself until morning. I believe that my creativity grew during that time. I would lay in the dark with the cover drawn tight over my face thinking of inventions that would turn the lights on automatically. There was no Clapper, or motion sensitive devices, in the 60’s and 70’s, to turn the light on, or at least we didn’t have them.
Still, it wasn’t just the physical darkness that scared me. In fact, I remember, when I was around 5 years old, sleeping in my parents’ room, waking in the night, and seeing in one of the corners of the room, a figure lurking that was blacker than the night (the best way I can describe it to this day). This ‘thing’ followed me throughout my adolescent, teenage, and young adult years.
In those days, there was not much talk about oppression and chemical imbalance. And as a kid, I never knew who I could talk too about it. All I knew, I was just scared. I could sense something brooding around me, particularly at night and in my dreams.
It was in my tweens, around 12 years old that I realize that another unseen being was seeking dominance in my life. My siblings and I were raised in religious tradition. My parents were strict Black Southern Baptist. We lived in the church.
But one of those Sundays, the soft spoken and musical words of our pastor finally reached my heart. And one of those Sundays, the bite size little stories from my Sunday school teacher’s lessons about the Savior finally reached inside me.
When, I was home, I asked Jesus to come into my life. God began to deal with me. There was some break through. My dreams began to change. Instead of being chased in fear. I became the victor.
Time passed and life went on. When I was in my late teens, my relationship with the Lord deepened. I remember crying and snot[ting] at the weekly youth meetings as I began to cry out for more of Him. He (Jesus) answered me and radicalness began to happen. I remember times of prayer and crying out for the move of God. I longed to see His power moving in the earth like He did in the pages of the Bible. I longed for a deeper one-on- one relationship with Him as my Heavenly Father.
In 1980, at 20 years old, I married my young 18-years old girlfriend. The same year, I accepted the call into ministry. My wife and I experienced many problems and hardships. We struggled in marriage and in finances. If it were not for the grace of God and the support of a Word-filled pastor & church, our 32 (to this day) marriage would not be a reality.
But along with the challenges of a young marriage, I found out that something from my youth had showed back up, or never really left. I started to experience vexation from the darkness that had been there once before.
In fact, I would prepare to preach and the enemy would speak to my mind. He say, “You’ll preach to others but you’ll never be free.” Again, I found myself in a place where I couldn’t share what I was going through with any one. After all, a preacher does not deal with oppression or such attacks form the devil upon himself [sarcasm]. This went on for several years, manifesting in different ways in my life.
It was on a crisp October evening, a Tuesday I believe. I was with my two youngest children in me and my wife’s bedroom. She had gone to a meeting. The upstairs window was open on the 2nd floor of the town house, in the projects, we were living.
The smell of alcohol entered the room, but there was no one drinking outside below. Once again, I heard Satan say to my mind. “You’ll preach to others, but you’ll never have any peace. It was then that I had enough.
On my knees, I open my bible and turned to the Old Testament book of Deuteronomy. It was chapter 28. It was talking about the curses that would befall Israel if they would not keep the law of God. Several verse stood out.
15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
20 The Lord shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.
28 The Lord shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart:
29 And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee.
33 The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway:
66 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life: (Deuteronomy 28:15, 20, 28, 29, 33, 66-KJV)
I said Lord, this sounds like what I have been experiencing. The words vexation, oppression and fear day and night jumped out to me. But I knew this was Old Testament and I knew that this was the consequence of Israel’s disobedience. I knew that what Jesus had done on the cross had delivered me from any power of the enemy. After all, it was He that had saved me from sin and eternal damnation. I turned in my bible. I knew it was there somewhere. There it was in the New Testament. It was in Galatians 3:13, 14
13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith -KJV
So, I went back in forth between the two books as I talked to God the Father. “Father this is what the enemy has been doing to me all these years. Oppressing me. Vexing me. However you say here in Galatians that Christ has redeemed me from the curse of the law.”
I knew it was the curse of trying to keep the law (God’s commandments) and could not and the curse resulting from not keeping it. Christ had succeeded. He paid my price, and broken the devil right to vex & oppress me. I said, “I have been redeemed for the curse of my enemy vexing me and oppressing me. This night, in Jesus name, I receive my freedom.” And that night my freedom resurrected in me. It was like [my description] the snap of a handful of dry spaghetti. Something snapped inside of me. Something broke. It could never come back together. I knew that moment and forever that I was free.
Now, the thoughts that Satan was using didn’t stop that night—that took time. But the power of that thing was broken forever. Today, I teach others by the power of the living Word of God through what Jesus our Savior did on Calvary’s cross (and the shedding of His precious blood) that any person can be free in that revelation.
Some may not believe this. Some may call it ritualistic or a mystic formula. I know the reality of Him who loves me and has given me freedom through His Word. Jesus said, [When] you know the truth [the revelation of who He is and what He has done as the completed work of redemption] the truth will make you free.—John 8:32

Missionary Harry Jackson has literally been around the world preaching the gospel. The gospel message he delivers is not a flatfooted teaching followed by a please come to Jesus if you want to altar call. Not only is Brother Harry’s, as some know him, message bold and animated, it is followed by real documented manifestations of God’s power.
People are coming to Jesus in droves (or should I say by being led) and receiving eternal life, but they’re getting saved physically also. It’s like when Jesus walked physically on the earth and He and his disciples went about doing good healing all manner of disease and sicknesses.
The Voice of One Online sponsors a Harry Jackson column and regularly list miracles that accompany his ministry. It’s true, Minister Harry preaches and ministers directly to multitudes at a time as he travels in multiple continents and nations i.e., North America, South America, Africa, Europe, Asia, India. This article testifies that the power of God is not limited to distance, geography or technology.
As request by the Pastor Harry we present the emails just the way they transitioned and were typed (including broken English and typos).

Dear Machhuani Keyo,
Thank you for your kind letter today. I will pray for her even. "I send the Word of the Gospel to the child in the name of Jesus. Matthew 8:16-17 declares Himself took our infirmities and bore our sickness. I speak to the child's body and command the ears, nose, and pile to be completely healed in Jesus name. Ps 107:20 He sent his word and healed them and delivered them from their destruction. So I send His Word now and command the child's body to be healed in Jesus name. Amen.
God Bless you
Be at Peace

Hi, Respected Sir,
Thank you so much for your dedicated life for others people, sir, as I sent you prayer request and prayed for my sister daughter, God healed her completely.
After you prayed for her, her pile tumor was coming out by itself and bleeding was stop and dt 8th this month was the operation day but doctors told them to go on dt 7 and admit in the hospital, but on that
dt 7, her father said that to the doctor "the tumor was coming out by itself and stop bleeding"
And doctors said that "what they wanted to see is that tumor and wanted to take biopsy.”
And they said that, "Anyway we will operate her and take the flesh where there was tumor in order to take biopsy."
And 7 of them doctor cancer specialist checked her again, and they didn't find no more tumor and there's no spot in the flesh where there was tumor, and they did not know which flesh they have to cut too.
It was really completely healed and they just said that "she is really healed and no need to operate at all, if we operate her she will be suffering unnecessarily. She is really healed," they said like that.
Sir really our God is Supernatural power, Praise the LORD. We really, really grateful to God and you. Really thank you so much for standing with us as i have requested you.
God bless you abundantly
Testimony: From Death to Life
Hi, my name is Alexy Miranda and I was raised in project complexes most of my life. As time went by I started getting involved with what everyone else was doing. I picked up cigarettes and from there it led to marijuana.
At the age of 18, I was already selling marijuana and arrested for selling it. One thing led to another and before I knew it, I was trapped in the junk of this world.
I became violent, and at 19 years old, I had assaulted a man over $10.00 he didn’t pay me, causing him bodily injuries. I had gone from bad to worst without an idea how to get out. I grew to be hopeless, careless and even dangerous as I got my hands on guns.
After 7 months of being incarcerated, the gate was opened for another chance in the streets. I just couldn’t find what was right, while getting more into doing what was wrong. While on probation for 5 years I was arrested again for trafficking cocaine from New York to New Jersey. Now I received 3 years, but under an intensive supervision program I was out within 8 months. I had gone from selling marijuana to selling crack, and after more time, to heroin. I was out of control, without a life. I was into fornication, adultery, popping Ecstasy pills, hurting people, shooting guns, and in clubs fighting. I was just a monster.
By the time it was 2009, I had collected more than 25 arrests and about 2 years incarcerated. In the process of all these arrest, I read some of the Word (the Bible), but it just didn’t stick or I couldn’t understand it. I was trapped into being someone I wasn’t and nobody could loose these invisible chains Satan had bound me with---until July 16, 2009.
Once again in jail for a domestic violence, but this time something happened. A Latin guy who barely spoke English, started to preach the gospel to me. I refuse to listen, until he told me that he had prayed to God, asking for someone Latin to walk in, so he could preach to, and I walked in his cell.
After listening, I felt something happening to me. I asked God to change my life because I couldn’t stop smoking marijuana, drinking or being who I was. To my surprise, 11 days later, I could not smoke, drink or even curse no more. The Lord Jesus had set me free and transformed me into a new creation. So today I carry my cross and follow Jesus Christ, the Son of God...
