Pastor Randy reminded me of this testimony. God is moving!
A few weeks ago we had a wonderful Corporate Worship service. During the service a word of knowledge was given about shoulders being healed. Three people stood and were healed. In the process of praying for them one got a partial healing so I asked a nurse to come and pray for him. I never ask people by profession to come and pray. I will normally call out specific names if I am that specific. Well, a nurse responded and came to pray. What I didn’t know until later was the nurse that came had a shoulder problem but had been prayed for so many times and not been healed she didn’t stand for the Word of Knowledge. But when she came to pray for the healing of another her shoulder was healed too. Hallelujah, Jehovah Sneaky is at work!
June 15, 2010 Gerry lost his job and we went on unemployment. We did have some money in savings but only about enough to cover our bills for about three months. With unemployment we get about $1600 a month. Our regular bills before we pay our tithe, buy food, or do anything with our vehicles are $1,865. In the 12 months since we’ve been on unemployment we have gone to California to see family twice, Gerry went to Redding CA to go to Bethel; Sacramento, CA; Reno, Nevada; and Boise, idaho. He also went on the youth mission trip to Oakland, CA. We have not missed one meal. We have received more clothes than we know what to do with for Elli. She has attended dance classes, and music class. We have gotten new tires for both our vehicles and I had my air conditioner fixed. I have art supplies for Elli and for myself.
Gerry and a friend have partnered together and are trying hard to develop their design and construction business but up until now it has been a little slow getting started. We are seeing lots of good signs and they just signed a good contract that will begin to bring in some money.
During this entire year we have not gone into debt. We haven’t used credit cards nor have we asked for money from any one. God has been our Jehovah Jireh and he has provided abundantly for us. I am not going to say it’s been easy – there have been times when I wondered how we were going to be able to survive but God has always shown up with exactly what we needed.
God showed up and showed off in Taiwan as we trained inner healing teams for two churches as well as releasing the prophetic gifting into the body there. As SOZO was being ministered to the leaders of the church they were getting free from lies they had believed from childhood. Several of the ladies were sexually molested as children by relatives or friends. What a joy to see them healed from the devastation of such an invasion of the enemy.
One lady said…
Through the ministry I was directed to meet God in deeper ways through Sozo, my life has gained freedom both in relationship to God, to man and to myself. I feel so much lighter.
?I received a prophetic word about carrying loads that I was not meant to carry. This together with my Sozo training has released me from a lot of unhealthy manipulation in relationships.
Yet another is telling everyone in sight how God has turned her life upside down through her Sozo encounter, and is continuing to testify of the release she feels deep in her heart and in every aspect of life.
SOZO whacked them with encounter.
Then the Co-Pastor said of her Husband…
He was watching you and the others step out in prophecy in the meetings, so Sunday morning he also began by prophesying over people. Words of knowledge, prophecy, etc. is happening in every meeting we have had since. ? Hallelujah! We all feel upgraded in the use of spiritual gifts! It is exciting!
God be glorified!
Our first miracle report from Pastor Randy on his trip to Taiwan…
Headed to Taiwan on a mission trip we drove from Dallas to Houston to catch our first flight the next morning. After the Mavericks won their first NBA title I went to sleep so I could get up at 3:45am to catch the hotel shuttle at 4:30am. So this morning at 4:20am I arrived in the lobby to find Ramona, the desk clerk, sitting in the lobby. I began a conversation in which she informed me almost immediately that her foot was in pain. She informed me that she gets bone spurs but it had been a long time since she had had one. A strange thing to come up in a conversation except when you are on mission, LOL!
So, I told her that I was a Christian and sometimes when I pray for people they get healed. When asked if I could pray for her she said yes. I also asked her what the pain level was and she said it was ten.
I simply blessed her, thanking God for her and rel eased the Kingdom into her foot. Holy Spirit showed up and heat began to build in her foot. I asked if she felt the heat and she said she had felt it as soon as I touched her foot.
I then asked her to check it out and she got up and started walking and saying, “oh my gosh, oh my gosh,” which being interpreted means, “I am healed.” Bone spur and pain GONE!!!
It has already started. Keep praying. Taiwan is going to get rocked for the Kingdom and it’s King, Jesus.
Anyone regularly attending the Summit knows that we have been declaring a change in the atmosphere over our communities, our cities, and this entire North Texas region. Today we received this report from one of our members. What an awesome God we serve!
I went to the doctor’s office on Thursday. While he was looking through my file, he looked up at me and asked me “Are you a spiritual person? Because when you walked into the room, you brought peace with you and I could feel the tension leaving.” I said I was and tried to expound, but he cut me short and changed the subject. Even though I didn’t really get the opportunity to share Jesus with him, I can see that Jesus is drawing him and I am taking the opportunity to pray for him that next time, he will listen and receive the Gospel.
A pregnant member of our family got a scary report from her doctor, but she chose to believe the report of the Lord!
I had a gestational diabetes test on March 24th and the results came back with an elevated insulin level. I scheduled another test for Tuesday March 29th. We started praying and believing God to intervene. I told pastor about the situation on Sunday and he and another member prayed with me. I had my husband, my mom and my siblings, and several close friends, among others, interceding for me on the day of the test. Got results this morning and everything is normal. No gestational diabetes. Yea God!
Another great testimony from a member of our church.
Last night we were over at a friend’s house playing dominoes. There were about 8 of us there. Our host’s daughter had a cold and was feeling pretty lousy. She had spent most of the evening either in her room or under a blanket on the couch in the living room. She came into the kitchen and told her mom and dad was that she was “feeling just horrible.” It took some convincing but we got her to finally sit down at the table with us and we prayed for her. Her eyes got big as she realized she was able to breathe through her nose. Another guest had also been dealing with nasal congestion and she indicated that she was able to breathe better after we prayed for the other young lady. We left sometime later (at least 45 minutes) and both of them said that their congestion was much improved.
What a fantastic report we received from one of our members:
For several days in January my friend was having pain in her back and that made walking difficult. She was using a cane to help her. It took several days before it dawned on me to pray for her…guess I am just slow. I went over to her, placed my hands on the small of her back and commanded that the pain leave and her back be made right (it was not an elegant prayer!). Just as I finished my hands got so hot and as I removed them from her back, I wondered why I hadn’t noticed her back was hot before (see, I told you I was slow). I started to walk away but instead turned back to my friend and asked if she felt the heat or anything. With a big smile on her face she said yes, straightened right up and started moving around. Pretty soon we were both doing a ‘hallelujah dance’! Good thing my ceilings are high, because that cane was being waved high in the air.
The next morning I awoke to find my right thumb swollen, red and painful. I had apparently strained it the previous day doing some work for a friend. What was I going to do? I was working at the church that morning. I decided I would take some pain medication….but wait….why not pray? (Remember, I told you I was slow). So I placed my left hand over my right thumb and commanded the pain to go away and my thumb return to normal. I lifted my left hand and looked at my thumb. Glory Glory! It was not red; it was not swollen; I could move it without pain. And the dancing began again! Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
During our recent Sozo Basic Training, Tami and Gary were there with Salome, a friend who was visiting from out-of-town. Following the conference, they all returned to their home where their son, Calen, daughter-in-law, Kristi, 3-year-old granddaughter, Karese, and 18-month-old grandson, Cade, were staying.
The baby had woken from his afternoon nap with a high fever, so when Gary and Tami got home, Gary and Calen left to buy some children’s Motrin.
I heard Kristi screaming at the top of her lungs, “MOM! MOM! MOMMMMMMMMMM! I came running towards the stairs to the sound of her screams and three year old, Karese’s horrid high pitched wailing. Eight months pregnant Kristi had little Cade in her arms while terrified Karese was clinging so hard to her legs that none of them could manuver the stairs very well. Kristi finally managed to tear herself away from Karese’s grip and run down the stairs just as I got to the bottom of them. Cade was having a long seizure brought on from the fever and it wasn’t letting up. I tried to help Kristi get Cade in a comfortable position until the seizure could stop. When it finally did he was motionless, blue, and not breathing. Kristi threw him in my arms and ran back to get Karese and her cell phone to call 911.
I tried to remember my CPR training from my Senior Lifesaving Course more than 35 years ago. I decided that I had more faith in my Jesus than I did in my long rusted CPR skills and began to loudly rebuke the fever, seizure, spirit of infirmity, and the spirit of death…all the while telling myself, “You can do this, you can do this!” and with the next breath yelled out loud for Salome. She joined me, alternately praying in the spirit and trying to coax me to lay the motionless and blue baby down flat (later telling me that she had several years of rust on her CPR skills, but the Lord had begun to bring it back to her mind quickly in the moment.) By this time, I was so entrenched in the spiritual battle going on over his precious little life that nothing could have pried him out of my arms as I bound and broke off the powers of darkness. Beginning to see him turn from blue-grey to blue-white, I gained confidence that God was at work and began to speak in a softer voice, my mouth close to his pale face. I said, “Cade, this is Grami-Tam. I need you to come back to me and BREATHE! Breathe, baby …and keep breathing!” He began to seize faintly and then go motionless again…The battle continued with more prayers of authority, more soft commands to breathe, and more faint seizures of fluttering signs of life. Cade’s color was more white than blue now and his breathing more regular, although very shallow and labored. The dispatch operator had dispatched the EMTs and told us to lay Cade flat on the floor and tilt his head back until they arrived.
Gary and Calen got home moments after the EMTs had arrived. They went to work to stabilize him and then took him to the local Children’s Hospital to get help in reducing the fever quickly so that he didn’t suffer another seizure.
AT one point when we had Cade lying on the floor, Salome asked Father God to “present Jesus”. She saw Him holding Cade’s head back and asked Karese if she could see Him, too. Karese said, “Yes, I see Him holding his neck.” Later while I was comforting Karese in another fit of fearful fretting at bedtime, as I lay down beside her stroking the back of her neck, I “edited out the harm of the painful memory” from earlier in the evening, she began to calm and relax into peace. I’m SO THANKFUL that we have the testimony of Jesus and praise His miraculous and powerful goodness!
