Awakening at International House of Prayer

A Holy Spirit awakening has broken out in Kansas City, MO, at the University of International House of Prayer.

It all began on November 4, on the last day of the monthly Global Bridegroom Fast at the International House of Prayer of Kansas City (IHOP–KC). A move of the Holy Spirit began to stir during the student chapel at IHOPU, as students testified about receiving deliverance from self-hatred, shame, and depression. Students began to experience supernatural joy at the revelation of God's love for them. A powerful spirit of joy rested on many the next day at the IHOPU student-led 6:00am prayer meeting, and the Spirit continued to move throughout the week in our classes and during the faculty meetings ...

On November 11, during a 9:00am class of first-year students, led by Allen Hood and Wes Hall at International House of Prayer University (IHOPU), the Spirit moved in their midst with physical healings, deliverance, and a spirit of joy. That class, on November 11, continued for more than 15 hours. The word spread quickly, and over 2,000 people spontaneously gathered in the auditorium from all over the Kansas City area, as deliverance and physical healings increased. The meeting continued well past midnight. Recognizing that the Spirit was moving, the leadership of IHOPU canceled all classes for the next few days so that we could gather to receive all that the Spirit wanted to do ...

What started during our IHOPU student chapel on November 4 is continuing today. Visitors are pouring in from many places, with some driving over 1,000 miles overnight to participate in these meetings. Consequently, on November 12, we moved the Prayer Room to our Forerunner School of Ministry sanctuary from 6:00pm to midnight each night, to accommodate more people. We will continue these nightly meetings as the Holy Spirit leads us. We earnestly pray that this awakening will continue, as our nation is in desperate need of another great awakening in this hour.
These meetings have been live streaming here. Archived videos at this link feature many testimonies of healing and deliverance at this spiritual awakening, including:
  • Healing from depression and grief
  • Healing from acid reflux
  • Left ear opened
  • Left hip healed
  • Back pain healed by leg growth

Jon Ruthven on Miracles and Manifestations

Jon Ruthven has written a splendid endorsement of our book, Miracles and Manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the History of the Church. Ruthven is Professor Emeritus at Regent University School of Divinity and the author of On the Cessation of the Charismata: The Protestant Polemic on Post Biblical Miracles (revised and expanded edition, Word & Spirit Press, forthcoming in 2010). Here is what he says:
Jeff Doles’ Miracles and Manifestations is an outstanding collection of original documents which chronicle the “greater works” Jesus promised to his followers throughout church history. Doles unearths a breadth of material, some of which is not well known in the scholarly world. This work is equally useful both to the theologian and to the devotional reader.

Shifting Shadows of Supernatural Power

Shifting Shadows of Supernatural Power
A Prophetic Manual for Those Wanting to Move in God's Supernatural Power
by Julia Loren (with contributing authors Bill Johnson & Mahesh Chavda; forward by Graham Cooke)

"Shifting Shadows of Supernatural Power charts the storm brewing between the power of God and the enemy's schemes and encourages you to step out of the shadows and into the Light. A history of the prophetic movement in the United States combined with interviews of many well-known prophetic voices such as Jill Austin, Todd Bentley, James Goll, and Rick Joyner serves as a compass to navigate the storm and change the course of a too-complacent, intellectual church.

Prophet Johnson, healer Chavda, and therapist Loren equip you to step into God's presence, define shifting shadows' origins, sharpen your discernment, recognize converging movements, and increase in power and authority. Arm yourself with knowledge to distinguish the difference between power coming from God, the enemy, or even yourself. By tapping into God's authentic power and using His gifts of the Spirit, you'll access His supernatural signs and wonders — today!"

"This book contains interviews and excerpts from many well-known prophetic voices who call for readers to step out of the shifting shadows of loyalties and into a passionate pursuit of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, His glory and the power inherent in His kingdom. It is a call to take your place in the plan unfolding … a plan that heralds the close of this age."
In today’s spiritual climate, vast shades of gray seem to over power the well defined boundaries previously called black and white. The need of the hour is for discernment. True discernment restores boundaries, dispels fear and creates a safe environment where authentic spiritual experiences can flourish. Julia Loren comes to our aid in her must-read book Shifting Shadows of Supernatural Power by re-establishing proper guidelines for those in spiritual quest.

Healing the Comatose by Prayer

One word from the glory — “Wake up, Sleeping Beauty!” — was all it took to release the resurrection power into the intensive care unit (ICU). The young woman walked out of the hospital three days later, pushing her nurse in a wheelchair!
Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda, the pastors of All Nations Church in Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA, give that testimony about a woman who was in a diabetic coma. The doctors had pronounced her brain-dead.

They also share the story of a young man named Matt who was seriously injured in an avalanche. Broken shattered legs and facial bones, broken ribs, severe back injuries, and a blood clot in a main artery leading to the brain left him comatose, completely unresponsive and on life support. Miraculously, and quite surprising to the skeptical doctor, Matt began to respond when his family prayed. CharismaMag.com tells their story:
We prayed, calling him back to life, as did many others at that time. The next morning his mother called. She was thrilled — someone had noticed Matt move one foot, seemingly in response to a touch or a voice. A skeptical doctor came when called and was surprised to confirm that Matt was actually responding, though in a very limited and unpredictable way. The state of coma was still profound. It continued for weeks.

We received another urgent call for prayer as Matt was returned to ICU with pneumonia and other complications. That night in class we watched the DVD of the [Rend the Heavens] conference and heard Mahesh tell the ‘Sleeping Beauty’ story of the comatose girl. At the end of that testimony Mahesh gave a word that someone in the audience had a relative or friend in a coma whom the Lord wanted to heal, and instructed that person to stand. He even spoke of someone watching by recorded media who knew someone in a coma.

My husband and I were sitting across the room from each other. We looked at each other in astonishment at this word and instantly stood to our feet in the classroom. Our class prayed according to Mahesh’s leading, calling “Sleeping Beauty” to awaken.

The next day, I got a call from my friend, who was ecstatic — her son had awakened from his coma! Matt is home now, working hard to complete his recovery. Given the force of the accident and the extent of his injuries, it is a wonder that Matt is alive. That he awoke from his coma, wasn’t paralyzed, and can walk and function with anything near normalcy is an absolute miracle, a powerful testimony to the power of God!

Author Frank DeCenso on Miracles and Manifestations

“I have seen and own a large number of books on the manifested power of God through Church history. But I have never seen such a complete collection in one volume as is in Miracles and Manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the History of the Church by Jeff Doles.

“If you have a school, teach church history, teach on the power of God, have interest or know someone who does, this is the only book you’ll need on the subject. It is full of quotes from the writings of people from the time of the Gospels until now. It is like a chronological encyclopedia of the Holy Spirit’s working in church history.”

An Israeli Woman Supernaturally Led to Messiah

Yesterday we shared the testimony how the Lord used Sean Steckbeck for healing ministry and the prophetic word in Dimona, Israel. His wife, Ayelet Steckbeck, is a native Israeli who received Yeshua as her Messiah through supernatural circumstances. Here is a portion of her testimony as she gave it on the Sid Roth program, It’s Supernatural.

You can watch her full testimony here.

Prophecy and Healing in Dimona, Israel

Sean Steckbeck, one of my online friends, recently posted this testimony at Faith and Fellowship Forums, a board I frequent. Sean lives in Beer Sheva, Israel, where he is heavily involved in house church ministry. He is also perfecting his skills as a tour guide. Here, with his permission, is what he recently experienced:
Well, today I was shopping at the local grocery store here in Beer Sheva and the Holy Spirit kept on speaking to me “Dimona!”

Dimona is a town of around 40,000 people and is around a 20 minute drive southeast from Beer Sheva. Most people know this town because of Israel’s nuclear plant. It is a highly religious/traditional town made up of Eastern Jews (Yemen, Morocco, etc.). Most importantly, it is unreached, with no congregations. TACF [Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship] and John Arnott once did a conference in Dimona, no one from Dimona showed up, of course, it was mainly from congregations all over the other cities in the Negev and some from Jerusalem, etc. Dimona just provided a cheap meeting hall fit for all congregations together. Anyways, it is an unreached city.

So the Holy Spirit spoke to me tonight, I jumped in the car and drove 20 minutes to Dimona to obey the Lord.

After I parked at an outdoor shopping center, the Holy Spirit spoke to me about someone with a neck problem in the sporting goods store. So I went in the store and there were only 3-4 people in that store. I asked who has a problem with their neck, and two people actually did out of 3-4. One of them , M, got prayed for and was healed and gladly received a NT [New Testament].

Next I went to the grocery store to buy some snacks and get a divine appointment. While in the check-out lane, the Holy Spirit speaks to me about a leg problem and shoulder problem, it happened to be the guy in front of me who then was in total shock. Then I looked at his wife and said, “you have chronic headaches.” They shouted, “Where in the world did you come from?”

So I followed them out to their car, prayed for them, and they were healed, receiving also a NT.

The Holy Spirit then spoke to me to go to the pub of the city. After arriving in the pub, they asked me what I came for. I told them that God sent me and he wants to heal the sick. One man asked me to pray for his back problem, shocked, he was healed. Afterwards, the manager of the pub had neck problems. I prayed for him, also in total shock, he was healed. Then I prayed and prophesied over the girl serving at the bar. Shocked, she was totally healed also of chronic headaches. They gave me their phone numbers and want to be in touch. They are all sabra native Israeli Jews. The manager of the bar gave me a free drink as a “thank you!” I preached the gospel about Yeshua and they all received my message and want to know more.

There was a Bedouin watching all the bar healings (what a Muslim Bedouin was doing in a bar, I have no idea) ... anyways, he was so interested, he also wanted to talk to me about this and took my phone number.

Remember the Negev Bedouins, numbering over 100,000 and living mostly in the Beer Sheva-Dimona-Arad area, have only one known believer right now meeting with us that got saved last month!

So anyways, praise God for a fruitful spontaneous trip!
Sean added this follow-up in an email to me:
I just got a phone call from the couple at the grocery store an hour ago. He got his brother on the phone and the Lord gave me some prophetic words. It was right on.

We will meet with their entire family next week to speak about the gospel. They invited us!

An unreached city could have its first congregation.

Praise the Lord!
God is reaching into Dimona with the good news of Yeshua the Messiah.

More, Lord. Thank You for Your marvelous grace!

Healed and Declared Cancer-Free

Georgian and Winnie Banov, of Global Celebration, share this testimony in their “Bliss Report” of a woman who was healed of a rare form of cancer. She had been diagnosed as terminal, but following the healing, her doctor declared her cancer-free.
Three months ago, we held a city-wide “Healing Explosion” in Seattle. Heidi Baker was our guest speaker for Thursday night, and before sharing her message Heidi invited everyone who had been diagnosed with a terminal disease to come forward and find a resting spot on the platform. The stage quickly filled up with people who were desperate for a healing touch from Jesus. Some sat and others laid down with pillows and blankets. Next, Heidi called all of the children forward to pray for the sick. The children began to sweetly minister, and Heidi began to preach her message. As the people on the platform soaked in the in the Glory, the Lord did His wonderful work.

The precious woman whose head was fully bandaged and covered in a black scarf (seen above) had been diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer in February. That night, she prayed with Heidi to receive Jesus, AND she was healed. Her daughter wrote to us after visiting the Doctor on Monday. Her physician used these exact words, “Go live your life, you are CANCER FREE!”— Praise you King Jesus!

Divine Intervention: True Stories of Heaven Invading Earth by Julia Loren
“There's a blaze of light in every word ... This riveting collection of stories lifts us into the awe of knowing that Biblical accounts of encounters with God are available to all of us today. Ordinary believers and current church leaders tell you about their Encounters on the Road Less Traveled, Angel Sightings and Life-Changing Spiritual Experiences. As you read, know this God is as near to you as your own heartbeat. It is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom, too. Stories from filmmakers, prophets, pastors, housewives, students, and businessmen give a glimpse of a God's kingdom manifest as they: entertain angels unaware that they are not humans; experience a vision that transforms their ministry; encounter God on the road less traveled; and enjoy the presence of Jesus while becoming saturated in His love.”

Spirit-Filled Southern Baptist Pastor on Miracles and Manifestations

Here is a review of Miracles and Manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the History of the Church by J. Lewis, a Spirit-filled pastor of a Southern Baptist Church:
I am thrilled to no end to have in my hands a wonderful book written by Jeff Doles, Miracles and Manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the History of the Church.

This book provides documentation of the operation of spiritual gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit throughout the history of Christianity, just what I have been seeking for a couple of years.

As a Spirit-filled pastor of a Southern Baptist Church, I often encounter people who have been misled by erroneous doctrines and misconceptions about the Holy Spirit and His present day ministry in and through Christians. While this book does not present an argument against Cessationism; it does present a concise record of healings, miracles, and manifestations of spiritual gifts throughout the centuries since the ascension of Christ. There is abundant testimony given to demonstrate that the Holy Spirit has operated through both ordinary believers and ministers of the gospel when they dared to believe the promises of Christ in the Word of God.

My heart soars like a hawk as I read of the mighty manifestations of the Spirit in the lives of His people through the ages. I just read through a section relating multiple incidents of the word of knowledge in the ministry of Charles Spurgeon and of miracles, healings, trances and visions, and people falling out under the power of God in the ministry of John Wesley.

This is an excellent resource for any minister who hungers for the power of God to be demonstrated in his life and ministry.

Without doubt, this book will stir your heart, enlarge your vision for the work of Christ, and encourage you to trust God for miracles and healings today.

Faith Like Potatoes

Faith Like Potatoes (DVD)

“The South African crowd stared in stunned silence as Angus Buchan proclaimed to them, ‘This year we are going to plant potatoes!’ Is he crazy? Despite the crowd's reluctance, Angus Buchan knew about something stronger than the impending El Nino drought — he believed the promises of God. Angus had a faith like potatoes — a ‘real, tangible faith that will sustain us every day.’ Through unlikely friendships and much needed divine intervention, he discovers his life's true purpose and it sustains his unwavering belief in the power of faith. A moving life journey of a man who, like his potatoes, grows his faith, unseen until the harvest.”

Inspiring true story. Angus Buchan did not have an easy life, but he learned to meet his challenges with faith in God, and that made all the difference — he experienced some pretty powerful miracles, including raising a woman back to life who had been struck by lightning. A farmer in Zululand in South Africa, he sowed potatoes in a drought season, which was a pretty insane thing to do. But believing he was led by God, he did it anyway — and received a remarkable harvest of big potatoes. He’s still doing some amazing things today, reaching his region in Africa with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The movie, along with a bonus feature about Frank Buchan and his continuing ministry, shows some remarkable miracles.

You can also read the book, Faith Like Potatoes ("Film Edition") by Angus Buchan.

God's Supernatural Power in You

God's Supernatural Power in You
compiled by Frank DeCenso and featuring James W. Goll, Dr. Che Ahn, Kris Vallotton, Graham Cooke, Frank DeCenso, Heidi Baker, Jaeson Ma, Marc A. DuPont, Steve Sjogren, Craig von Buseck, Wolfgang Simson, Scott McDermott and Marguerite Evans.

The need for power ministry is as strong today as it was when Jesus and the apostles walked the earth. The need for demonstrations of Gods powerful love, exhibited through His church, will demolish strongholds of unbelief and relativism, as well as tear down cultural barriers that may bring confusion when only the words of the good news are shared, but its power is neglected. When Jesus and the apostles proclaimed the good news of salvation to people, works of power accompanied them. Today, the entire church needs mentored in how to bring Gods word to the world in power. This book is a prophetic call to engage te mission of bringing God's radical love to this hurting world through power ministry.
Frank DeCenso calls this "Volume 2" to his Amazed by the Power of God, Vol. 1 (preview with Amazon's "Look Inside" feature).

"We need ordinary people willing to minister wherever they are because lives need changed, the sick need healed and the oppressed need delivered. This will happen through 'ordinary Christians' who want to bring God's Kingdom to others through whatever means and giftings they are given," writes Frank DeCenso.

Ecstasies, Trances and Raptures

The Ecstacy of Loving God: Trances, Raptures and the Supernatural Pleasures of Jesus Christ by John Crowder
(Preview with Amazon's "Look Inside" feature.)
"Though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with inexpressible joy and full of glory" (1 Peter 1:8 NASB)

It is time to return the joy of the Lord to everyday Christian life. The Greek term for ecstasy is linked with the pleasurable, God-given state of  out-of-body experience recor4ed throughout the New Testament and the Church age.

Author John Crowder shows you how God's active interaction with men and women through the ages has always been marked by supernatural experiences. More than a state of mind, you will see how the nature of God's ecstasy is found in the joy, bliss and inner raptures of His presence.

You will also:
  • Learn the history of trances in revival ministries.
  • Gain a biblical understanding of Christian mysticism.
  • Explore the ecstatic states of prayer and spritual trances.
  • Learn how to walk in continued joy and pleasure before the Father.
  • Examine miraculous phenomena.
  • Be refreshed by the new wind of God's Spirit!
  • Be encouraged to drink from the river of His pleasure! (Psalm 36:8)
There is no doubt that you can experience the joy and ecstasy of His presence every day of your life.

Ecstasy, or extasis, is the Greek term for trance, and is linked with a pleasurable, God-given state of out-of-body experience recorded throughout the New Testament and the church age. Starting with the apostles ecstatic experiences on Pentecost, the Book of Acts further records trances in the lives of Peter and Paul. From the early church to the Christian mystics of the Middle Ages and the famous revivalists of centuries present, God s movements on the earth have always been marked by these supernatural experiences. In this book, John Crowder takes us on a journey from Old Testament ecstatic prophets such as Samuel and Elijah, to the future ecstatics who will usher in a massive wave of harvest Glory to the streets in these last days. God has always wanted a people who live in the Heavens, even as they walk on the Earth. And the world is hungry for the demonstration of a gospel of supernatural power that flows from a life of divine pleasure.
    "The Church has long been amiss in not understanding ecstasy, indeed nearly all our high experiences in our Lord's loving presence. We tend to revile what we don't understand. We have often reacted to the word ecstasy as though it means some kind of off-kilter wildness that needs to be avoided in the name of common sense and balance. John Crowder's book dispels fear and gives historical understanding and wisdom, properly enticing all of us into loving encounters with our Lord. In this time, when the Holy Spirit is calling us all into intimacy with the Lord Jesus Christ, this book is greatly needed and should be welcomed by all Christians who seek His face." — John Sandford, Cofounder, Elijah House Ministries

    "Combining a depth of historical research and passion for Jesus, John Crowder brings together a rare blend for an emerging generation voice. His writings inspire me, challenge men, and make me turn my head. His calling to take the historical orthodoxy of the Holy Spirit packaged into a 'today's style' is an amazing work of art." — James W. Goll, Cofounder, Encounters Network and Prayer Storm Director

    The Miracle Ministry of Revivalist Roger Webb

    Roger Webb, an evangelist based in Orlando, FL, is seeing the healing, miracle-working power of God regularly at his meetings. Sometimes broadcast on Ustream, his meetings have brought forth numerous miracles in viewers and he has received many healing testimonies at his Facebook page. He reports some of these here, including: knees healed, dental miracles, torn rotator cuff no longer torn, and relief from asthma, bronchitis, firbromyalgia, and various other pains and afflictions. Also included are healing testimonies — too many to list here — from recent meetings in Fowlerville, MI and Cleveland, OH.

    Here is a statement from his web page (www.rogerwebb.org) that speaks of his purpose:
    With a mandate, Evangelist Roger Webb is giving a voice to a Sound From Heaven. Boldly declaring a fresh word from Heaven backed by Kingdom signs. The battering ram of the miracle anointing shatter the strongholds placed upon people's lives and pierces through the darkness. An earmark of Back to God Miracle Campaigns is the visible display of the Kingdom of God with in your face miracles!

    Focused intent:
    1. Calling individuals to turn back to God.
    2. Rallying the church to prayer.
    3. Fresh baptism of power.
    4. Outreach - reaching beyond the walls of our buildings with that power.
    5. Miracles for the sick and diseased during each service.
    At a revival meeting at Plainwell Assembly of God (Plainwell, MI), Webb reports numerous emotional and physical healings, including:
    • A sixteen year old girl with scoliosis found her back was straight after Roger prayed for her.
    • A ninety-one year old woman whose broken fingers had been improperly set — the doctor said she would never be able to close her fist completely — received prayer and was able to close her fist with ease. She also prayed that night to receive Christ.
    • A pastor who suffered with arthritis received healing prayer and was instantly healed. He went away pain-free.
    • After the laying on of hands, an elderly man with bad back, knees and elbows was able to move without pain.
    • His wife, who suffered from emphysema and had one lung removed, coughed up phlegm during the meeting. At the end, when Roger prayed for her, she coughed up what phlegm was remaining and, to her surprise, found her lung was clear.
    • A thirteen year old girl was healed of stomach cramp pain.
    • Here mother was also healed of a particular pain.
    • The tumor on a woman's leg disappeared.
    • Woman healed of bone spurs on spine (She had it for 6 years), and growth on her neck disappeared (it was the size of a small egg).
    • Man healed of Multiple Sclerosis (had for 17 years).
    • Woman healed of degenerative arthritis in her hips (she called friend and friend was healed of bone spurs on spine also).
    • Man healed of injured knee (came in walking on cane left carrying it!).
    • Woman's little finger healed.
    • Man had financial miracle for his business.
    • Woman's wrist and ear healed.
    • Man healed of TMJ (a jaw condition).
    • Woman healed of digestive problems.
    God is still doing today what He has always done in and through His Church.

    Healing in a Grocery Store

    Pastor Bill Johnson shares the testimony of a young man from his church who ministered the healing power of Jesus Christ in a grocery store. "If it doesn't work in the marketplace, it doesn't work," says Johnson.

    One woman is healed of deafness, another has her hip healed, a musician with carpal tunnel is healed. The young man preached the gospel and these folks received the Lord Jesus Christ.

    God is still doing what He has always done.

    2000 Years of Charismatic Christianity

    2000 Years of Charismatic Christianity:
    A 21st Century Look at Church History from a Pentecostal/Charismatic Perspective
    by Eddie L. Hyatt

    (Preview with Amazon's "Look Inside" feature.)
    Overwhelming evidence reveals contemporary Christianity roots in Pentecost!

    The world is taking notice and realizing that the fastest-growing segment in Christianity has an undeniable history with a pattern and a rich, deep foundation dating back to the New Testament. Explore overwhelming evidence that reveals how the gifts of the Holy Spirit not only have existed in the centuries since the early apostles, but have also survived the Middle Ages, the politicized church of Europe, and have experienced a spectacular revival this century.

    2000 Years of Charismatic Christianity offers convincing evidence that the modern Pentecostal and Charismatic movements are rooted in the two-thousand-year history of the church. Those who identify with these movements will be affirmed in the experience of the Holy Spirit and will gain a new respect and appreciation for the movement of which they are a part. Those outside the Pentecostal and Charismatic movements will also benefit by reading this volume in that they will gain an understanding of this movement that Harvard professor Dr. Harvey Cox says is "reshaping religion in the 21st century."
    This book was one of the inspirations for my book Miracles and Manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the History of the Church. It provided a good overview and summary which helped me compile much original source material on how the gifts of the Holy Spirit have been revealed through the centuries.

    Expect God’s Mighty Acts Today

    Reading Bill Johnson’s book, Release the Power of Jesus, I came across a sermon quote from Charles Haddon Spurgeon. I include it here, with a bit more from that sermon, because it is so good about expecting to see the power of God today:
    When people hear about what God used to do, one of the things they say is: “Oh, that was a very long while ago.” They imagine that times have altered since then …Things were in a different state then from what they are now.” Granted; but I want to know what the things have to do with it. I thought it was God that did it.

    Has God changed? Is He not an immutable God, the same yesterday, today and forever? Does not that furnish an argument to prove that what God has done at one time He can do at another? Nay, I think I may push it a little further, and say what He has done once is a prophecy of what He intends to do again — that the mighty works which have been accomplished in the olden time shall all be repeated, and the Lord's song shall be sung again in Zion, and He shall again be greatly glorified.

    Others among you say, “Oh, well I look upon these things as great prodigies — miracles. We are not to expect them every day.” That is the very reason why we do not get them. If we had learned to expect them, we should no doubt obtain them, but we put them up on the shelf, as being out of the common order of our moderate religion, as being mere curiosities of Scripture history. We imagine such things, however true, to be prodigies of providence; we cannot imagine them to be according to the ordinary working of His mighty power. I beseech you, my friends, abjure that idea, put it out of your mind. (The Story of God’s Mighty Acts)
    Spurgeon knew the mighty acts of God in his own day. He knew about the power of faith to heal in Jesus’ name and experienced many remarkable healings in his ministry. He also had frequent “words of knowledge” about things he could not have known unless God had revealed them to him. I have compiled many of these in Miracles and Manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the History of the Church. God is still doing today what He has always done.

    Faithpoint: What God has done in the past is a prophecy of what He intends to do again. If we learn to expect it, we shall see it. What is your expectation?

    For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy (Revelation 19:10).

It will bring readers to the cleaer terms of why we must and how we can release the power of God to bring order amid the chaos of the 21st century." — Jack Taylor, Dimension Ministries

    Salvations and Healing Miracles in Nigeria

    CharismaMag.com reports that 800,000 accepted Christ in a series of evangelistic meetins recently conducted in Nigeria's Delta State by Rheinhard Bonnke. Many signs and wonders were also reported. According to Bonnke's ministry statement:
    The original gospel comes with signs and wonders, and what we witnessed last week was absolutely glorious. Miracles upon miracles. Without the miraculous the gospel would be an empty shell. But Jesus Christ is the same-today. Miracles identify Him.
    Miracle reports include:
    • The blind receiving sight.
    • The lame walking.
    • One man said he was healed of HIV/AIDS.
    • "One pastor had been shot in the arm by robbers and the arm had died. He had spent a small fortune on doctors trying to save the arm, but they were unable to restore it and so he was scheduled to have it amputated ... After the prayer, he received feeling in his hand again and use of two of his fingers, and his hand was still improving in real time as he gave his testimony."
    • A thirty-five year old man who was deaf and mute from birth, received his hearing and was able to repeat words after healing prayer.
    • A thirty-two year old man born lame no longer had to crawl around but was able to get up and walk.
    • A woman who was injured in an accident and unable to walk correctly demonstrated her healing by leaping on the platform.
    • Tens of thousands received the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
    Bonnke said,
    We ought to have a blazing neon sign in every church with the words: "This Same Jesus." The Jesus we point to is the Jesus of saving grace, miracle power and healing mercy. What He was in the past He still is today. What He did in days gone by He still does in our day. When we preach Jesus as He is, He reveals Himself in confirmation of what is said."
    You can find this report here.

    God is still doing today what He has always done in His Church.

    Healing Miracles in a Netherlands Pub

    Joel News International reports on an unusual "miracles and healing" meeting that took place in a Netherlands pub, where many were healed in the name of Jesus. According to organizer Marjan Spijkman,
    Nine people, mainly women from the neighborhood, showed up ... God was powerfully present and healed them from reuma [rheumatism], emotional wounds, urination problems, and other hurts. One woman, who was nearly deaf, could hear again, to the surprise of her daughter and the other guests. You know, these women have a reputation in their neighborhood for being hard and bitter. But Jesus Christ touched them, they cried in our arms. Afterwards two women applied for an introductory course about Jesus. The owners of the pub invited us back and suggested that we would use the larger room in the pub, as they are expecting more people to come.
    Thorugh believers like Marjan, Jesus is still doing today what He did two thousand years ago, going to where the needy are and bringing them salvation and healing.
