healing service

in a healing service, it seemed that God was all about touching knees. I had called out a word of knowledge and one guy testified to being healed during my message. then we prayed for a young girl who had been injured snowboarding. The Lord healed her knees almost instantly. she was amazed. we then prayed for another woman who had knee problems and she was healed. it was powerful what the Lord was doing. we did go after some other knee conditions that we didn't seem to get much breakthrough. I'm not sure why. we had so much faith after seeing 3 sets of knees completely and dramatically healed.

that night the Lord continued to heal many different conditions - back pain, shoulder pain, stomach pain and other conditions. It was encouraging how the Lord would so faithfully reveal a person's pain/condition without us asking. they would walk up and then we we would wait on the Lord and he would reveal by word of knowledge what they needed. I LOVE IT when the Lord speaks like that. It makes praying for the sick so much easier!!

more of God's miraculous kingdom

tonight was another night to see God's Kingdom break into our midst in miraculous ways. as Isaac of Ninevah and I are ministering together with the Dallas Maverick, we saw saw God speaking prophetically, healing the sick and releasing tangible encounters of the Father's love into the lives of men and women.

I have no idea how many were healed, but the Lord revealed many conditions by word of knowledge and proceeded to do what only He can do. an update with more details will be forthcoming when I can compare notes with the others.

recent "Treasure Hunt"

on a recent trip a group of us went on a "treasure hunt". we gathered some "prophetic clues" and launched out to see what God would do. one of our first clues was for a man with a shaved-head and tatoos. we had nothing else. we immediately came upon a man with a shaved head but could see no tatoos. we approached him and told him why we had approached him. immediately he lifts his arms to reveal two arms full of tatoos on the inside. we asked if he needed prayer for anything. he wanted to be free of his addiction to chewing tobacco. we prayed for that and moved on.

next we approached a young guy who was sitting alone and showed him our "treasure map" (the clues). he found one that said injured right shoulder and upper arm. he was discouraged because it wasn't the left shoulder and upper arm. he had injured himself and was in pretty bad pain (we could see the bruise) we told him that we'd pray anyway. we prayed once and most of his pain left. we prayed again and he said "I can't find the pain any more".

after that we approached a group of skaters. they always have pain of some sort. they did. one guy let us pray for his elbow. as I prayed nothing really happened, but when one of the teens (on his first treasure hunt) prayed, he could feel something significant happening. it really encouraged our team member. the boy we prayed for still had pain when we left, but we knew that God had done something significant.

finally we meet a couple from overseas (he was Dutch and she was Australian). while talking to them, the Lord gave me a word of knowledge about a problem in one of their feet. we asked and they were silent. they acted like there was no problem. a few minutes later the wife pulled one of the women on our team aside and confided that she in fact did have foot pain in the exact location I had described. she prayed and then we prayed again. she could sense something had changed because the constant "tingling" sensation that she had left. it was just a great opportunity to encourage this Roman Catholic couple (who incidently had just walked out of a Pentecost Catholic service) with the work and power of the Holy Spirit. numbers and emails were exchanged.
