He healed all

“And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power came out from him and healed them all.” Luke 6:13

In this, the end (part 3) to the beginning of the Haiti story, I want to share some of the healing testimonies from the Haiti trip. “For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” (Rev. 19:10). So if you have one of these afflictions, claim the testimony and the healing!

One of my favorite testimonies involves Shelby, an eleven-yr old who joined us on the trip. Towards the end of the trip, we teamed up as prayer partners. Someone came up with a stomach problem and I asked Shelby to start the prayer time. Shelby said a complex prayer to the effect of, “stomach, be healed, in Jesus name. Peace.” Rather than joining in the prayer,I asked them how their stomach felt. They said, “all better!” Of course! Shelby prayed. The power of Jesus went forth. It’s a done deal! I think I did pray a closing blessing. Just so I could say I added my two cents worth. Though that is not really accurate since a Jesus blessing is of infinite value.

Another of my favorites was of a blind lady led forward for prayer. I asked the translator, “How blind is she? Can she see my hand (right in front of her face)?” She could not. Blind—as in totally blind. Angie and I prayed. Nothing. We prayed again. She could now see two fingers right in front of her. And four fingers further back. K—I am excited! “How about the stage?” No. Not yet (I love the word yet). We prayed again. “Now can you see what’s happening on the stage?” “The man walking off,” she said. Hallelujah! Praise King Jesus! The power. Of Jesus.

We spent one day in the churches, equipping the Haitians. The team received a word that the Lord wanted to heal headaches. Many came forward. The first two were teens. We prayed, commanded the pain to go, and it did. Then we told them they were the new prayer team. So the teens turned, and with our encouragement, prayed over an elderly man who had shuffled forward, bent over, body riddled with pain. After prayer, we asked him to activate the healing by doing something he couldn’t before. To our surprise, he karate kicked into the air. Healed. Jesus! The next day, some of our team were at his church and he confidently came forward, walking straight and strong, to give testimony of the healing he received from Jesus.

One last testimony. We were praying up the town square one evening before the crusade. One of the translators brought a young woman to us. Although a believer since day one, the enemy had been tormenting her by throwing her to the floor and convulsing her body, often while she tried to worship. We led her through a beautiful and gentle deliverance and the Lord pulled the root out. She left a happy lady.

We are living in a good—actually a great—day! Jesus is alive and wants His people whole and healthy, the same as in the days He walked the earth. All things are possible with Him (Mark 9:23). And we expectantly and humbly wait to do the greater (John 14:12).

Let’s all just memorize this verse…“for power came out from him and healed them all!” Quote it often! And keep you eyes on Him!

Good news! Good news, indeed!
