HIV now undetected after encounter with Jesus on the streets!

November 24, 2009

It’s been a while since my last entry. I’ve been focusing on building relationships with those I have already prayed for on the streets but have still had time to pray for people and see The Lord break in to their lives. About a month ago I prayed for a man who had some pain but also told me he was HIV positive and needed prayer for that. I had to remember that regardless of the scale of the problem, no mountain is too big for God. We mustn’t focus so much on the level of anointing we operate in, we must focus on The Anointed One who breaks yokes, sets captives free and reigns as King Eternal, Jesus Christ!

As I prayed for him Holy Spirit touched him tangibly and pain left him. This built faith in both of us to agree that HIV must bow the knee to Jesus and leave him. As I prayed for the HIV to go, he told me that he felt electricity touch him, he was truly encountering the glory of God. I felt humbled as The Lord broke in by the shopping mall. We believed that God had done something in his body. He told me when he was getting retested to check for HIV in the blood and I took his number. I wanted to know how the test went. A few weeks past, and I spoke to him on the phone. He told me that the result of the test was that the doctors could not detect HIV in his blood! Understandably they aired on the side of caution and told him to keep taking his medicine which I agree is sensible, but it would appear that The Lord has done something. What impressed me was that this man believed The Lord had healed him that day. It’s easy to pray for people who have faith. He did tell me that there had been encouraging signs before I had prayed for him, and as a Christian he has had other people pray for him too. On that basis it can’t be ruled out that he could have been partially or fully healed even before I prayed for him, and even if he was healed or the healing was completed when I prayed for him, I might well have been reaping where other people had sown by praying in tears. The point is that JESUS healed him, but what is encouraging is that The Lord can use you and me in conjunction with others to fulfil His glorious plan in people’s lives in setting them free.

Jesus tells us in Mark 11 22-24 ” Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”

This is a challenge to me to take to heart. Just recently my daughter’s 4th finger on her left hand suffered a severe laceration as it was trapped in a door at school after another child slammed the door shut accidently. The worst case scenario was not good, however my wonderful church started praying, and God, through all the prayers and the medical profession did something amazing in restoring her finger with sensation coming back despite a gloomy prognosis.

As I write there is a glorious outpouring of God’s Spirit at The International House of Prayer in Kansas City. God is pouring out His new wine. Let’s pray it goes around the world.

Whatever you’re going through, whatever dreams seem like they’re dead in the ground in your life, I want you to know that you can trust God. You can trust in His unfailing love for you. What you’re going through may be tough, you may be asking questions, but hold on to God, He will see you through to Your promised land. Have you given your life to Jesus? You can ask Him in right now to be your Lord and Saviour, repent of your sins, and thank Him for all He’s done for you.

UPDATE 29/11/09 You can see Victor’s testimony in the next article on video as The Lord touches him again, this time it’s his left leg being prayed for and on video you can see what happens!

Dudley miracles in marketplace with young people

June 7, 2008

Today June 7th was very memorable, and to God be all the glory for what I share! I went out onto the streets of Dudley well supported by a long standing friend from Cheltenham Jesse. I prayed for an elderly man for his hearing. He had had hearing problems since activity in World War 2. God healed his ears and he testified to the improved hearing. A group of people started to gather as this miracle was occuring, mainly young men. After I led the elderly man to Christ, Jesse led me to inside the Dudley marketplace stalls, and I met one of the young men who had seen the miracle. He wanted to be free of an addiction, and also had suffered a long term painful ankle condition. I felt the Lord wanted me to minister healing to his ankle first. I did so as Jesse prayed with me, he felt heat on his ankle, then the clicking and pain left him! Not only that but people around the stalls witnessed this, including his friend who captured the whole thing on the camcorder of his mobile phone!
After his ankle was healed he gave his life to Jesus, and encouraged his friend to get some prayer. I prayed and prophecied over this other young man, and he felt God’s tangible presence. As a result he also gave his life to The Lord. Other friends and people looked on as God was moving. Another of his friends looked on and admitted about the reality of Jesus being real. He said “now I have the proof.” People are tired of religion, but hungry for the supernatural and will often look in the wrong places. They want to see evidence Jesus is real. Here the first young man testifies of the miracle healing of his ankle:

Later today I met the young man who I had prayed for last week and was miraculously healed of his leg injury. He was running! He shared with me that he had had no problems with his leg since I had prayed. Praise God for His goodness!
The Dudley outpouring continues in my church Revival Fires with awesome miracle healings. It is now in its 42nd consecutive day of meetings! Praise God that Jesus is visiting the streets and marketplace of Dudley as well! What a privilege to have a ringside seat to what He is doing at the moment. The signs wonders and miracles point to Him, it is all about Him, His Lordship, His glory, His Kingdom, and His desire to have an intimate relationship with each one of us. If you don’t know Jesus as Lord and Saviour give Him your life now, and if you do, take a risk for Him and share His love and power with those who don’t know Him.

Divine appointments, healing, salvations

May 30, 2008

Yesterday I met an elderly man with heart and lung problems. As I prayed for him, he told me heat touched him, God’s presence. He wasn’t ready to accept Jesus Christ though. However the next day as I was spending time in the church coffee shop ministering to a young man whom I had led to Christ a week ago today, the same elderly man walked in to the coffee shop which I was surprised about with a lady who is the manager of the sheltered accommodation he lives in. She asked me about coming to pray for other residents who need healing having heard about what had happened to the elderly man from his own words. The man testified that his breathing had tangibly improved since I had prayed for him. As he felt the power of God again when I prayed for him, he accepted Jesus as Lord and Saviour. I then led the sheltered home manager to Christ as well. Praise God for this open door, and for them coming into our church coffee shop where they could experience the wonderful presence of God that abides in our church.
