Brian, one of our team members, was checking out to see if Andrew’s legs were even. We were out ministering at a flea market and sitting at a taco tent with some wacky music playing in the background which you can hear in the video below.
Well, it turned out that Andrew’s right leg was slightly shorter than his left leg. No problem. Brian commanded it to grow out in Jesus’ name. Then he commanded it to keep growing even further to see how far it would come out. Continue reading Growing A Leg Out & In Again→
This was the first time we encountered a homeless husband and wife team on the streets of New York City.
The husband Scott sat on an opposite corner of his wife Vicky and told us about his wife and that it was her birthday today. They were both homeless and Vicky was 3 months pregnant. We prayed for her and she was instantly healed of scoliosis but her biggest pain was emotionally that her daughter was not with her. Continue reading Instantly Healed From Scoliosis, Carpal Tunnel & Sciatica→
Don’t worry. This is not scary. But it is amazing!
When Jamie prayed for Gail’s hip and back pain, she checked Gail’s legs and sure enough, one of them was shorter than the other. So Jamie commanded the shorter leg to grow out in Jesus’ name and it did so until it was even with the other leg. You can watch it grow in the video below. This was her first time doing this and even she was amazed.
But something else happened during this miraculous healing which we did not see or realize at the time. You see, one of our team members, Dave, had recorded the entire event. I sent a copy of the recording to a friend who emailed me back that we had captured more on that video than I might have realized. He gave me the marker points and told me to take another close look at it. Continue reading Healing and Spiritual Activity Captured On Video→
We were in New York City ministering to people on the streets.
A woman was walking with difficulty with a cane. I approached her and said: “Excuse me. I noticed your cane. I’m a minister and I pray for people and God heals them. Can I pray for you?”
“Okay.” was her response. I introduced myself and she told me her name was May. “Okay, May, what can I pray for for you? What’s the cane for?” I inquired. “My hip.” she responded, “I have a problem with my hip. It hurts.” Continue reading Instantly Healed Of Pain In Her Hip→
The Qur’an proclaims that Allah sent down the Book (Qur’an), the Taurat (Torah or the Law of Moses) and the Injeel (Gospel of Jesus):
Surah 3:3 -It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Taurat (Torah or the Law of Moses) and the Injeel (Gospel of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgment between right and wrong).
If the Qur’an states that all of these books were given by Allah in truth, then all 3 books must be read and believed by all Muslims and not just the Qur’an only which book is to “confirm what went before it” as stated above. Continue reading Jesus Al-Masih in the Qur’an→
We were out ministering on the streets in New York City and had teamed up with another healing outreach team.
I met one of their team members whose name was Leo and who was suffering from back pain. He had been prayed for by others on the team and experienced some relief but it was a stubborn demon that still gave him grief. So we took the devil by surprise and knocked it out altogether in 5 seconds flat and Leo was set free. Praise Jesus! You can watch his testimony below.
We were out on the streets of New York City, ministering to people and met Avalon and Terry. They were homeless.
Avalon met her boyfriend Terry, on the streets. We prayed for Avalon and she was healed of her asthma and Terry from pain in his mouth. We were able to bless them with some clothes and some finances. As we were talking with them, someone gave them a nice warm pizza .
Avalon is a real testimony of trusting God for His provision for them every single day. Avalon became homeless when she had lost her job and could no longer afford to pay the rent for her apartment. This could happen to anyone today. She is just like anyone of one of us. Continue reading Homeless But Not Hopeless→
We were in New York City, having a great time with the Empire State Building Ticket Sellers (see the post & video here) when Edwin and his wife Toya approached us for prayer.
They had been observing how everyone was getting healed and baptized in the Holy Ghost and wanted in on the action. Alright!
Edwin explained that he was a believer, baptized in the Holy Spirit and “spoke in tongues and everything”. But he said that he had certain chains that needed to be broken. When asked, he said he needed “consistency”, which I assumed was consistency in his spiritual walk. He also had occasional back pain but did not have it today. Continue reading Chains Broken & Stomach Pain Healed→
It was July 5th and a hot summer’s evening in NYC with temperatures in the nineties.
We met up with the team at Bryant Park by the fountain. We met Johnny there who was a newcomer to the team and was full of questions. He believed healing was true but had not seen it himself. He had been watching several videos about healing and had prayed for several people but had not seen anyone he prayed for actually get healed. He used as an example, the pain he had in his knee and shared that 3 people had already prayed for it but he had not been healed. Continue reading Street Healing in New York City→
So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

Ever since I was a kid in school, I loved Show & Tell. It would be a welcome relief from all the teaching just to sit back and watch as other kids would bring in an object and then tell the class what they knew about it. One day a boy caught every child spellbound when he told about ice cream. Unfortunately he only brought in pictures and books and talked about how it was made and not the real thing. But being overly familiar with the stuff, in our mind’s eye, we could all taste it and hung on his every word.
Then one day came my turn. So I brought in a Dutch sailboat made out of a wooden shoe with sail and all. My parents were Dutch immigrants and had brought this fine specimen with them from their old country, Holland. The kids loved it as I am sure they had never seen such a thing before.
Every kid loved Show & Tell and none were ever bored or looking out the window as they would with the everyday teachings. It was a live show and a hands on demonstration that captured everyone’s attention and held it captivated every second until the show was over. Continue reading Show & Tell→
“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15
Before God created man, He created the angels. He created them perfect, beautiful and without sin. Even Lucifer was created perfect and was called son of the morning and the bright and morning star. Until iniquity was found in him when he tried to exalt himself above God and led many angels astray with him in his rebellion against God. That is when he fell from heaven to earth and from that moment on, he was called Satan, which literally means “Adversary.” Continue reading Choose You This Day Whom You Will Serve!→
How are you? I just had to send you this letter to tell you how much I love you and care about you.
I saw you yesterday as you were walking with your friends. I waited all day, hoping you would walk and talk with me also. As evening drew near, I gave you a sunset to close your day, and a cool breeze to rest you. Then I waited, but you never came. O yes, it hurt me, but I still love you because I am your friend.
I saw you fall asleep last night, and I longed to touch your brow, so I spilled moonlight upon your pillow and your face… Again I waited, wanting to rush down so we could talk. I have so many gifts for you. Continue reading Love Letter From A Friend→
First of all, you must believe that you can be healed because of the price that Jesus paid by His stripes at the whipping post.
Just as it is forever settled that it is absolutely God’s will that none should perish because He sent His only Son that whosoever should believe in Him should not perish but have everlasting life because Jesus paid the price at the cross for the forgiveness of our sins, likewise it is forever settled that it is absolutely God’s will that none should be sick because He sent His only Son that whosoever should believe that by His stripes we are healed should not be sick because Jesus paid the price in His broken body at the whipping post for the healing of our bodies and that He is entitled to receive that which He has paid the price for in full.
As exciting as it is to see someone you pray for instantly get healed, it is even more thrilling to see one of your team members perform their very first healing.
Anand, one of our newest team members, joined us for one of our outreaches to a local outdoor flea market. We approached a young woman who was walking with a cane. Her name was Isabella and she was there with her husband, her son and her mother. She said that she had pain in her right leg but mostly in her left foot. You could see that she was wearing two completely different shoes.
She had gotten an infection in her foot which had progressively gotten worse and was walking around with this for 6 months. She was scheduled to go to a special clinic in New York to have surgery on her foot. Continue reading Activating A New Team Member→
We decided to have a team outreach at the Fall Foliage Festival in Port Jervis, NY, right over the border from New Jersey.
I have never seen so many people needing healing all gathered in one place. It looked like an invalid ward and as if someone had planned a special outing for people with disabilities. The fields were literally “white already to harvest” as it says in John 4:35. I usually keep a log of people prayed for but there was no time to take any notes at all. The minute you were done praying for one person, another captive soul needing deliverance stood in front of you with a cane, crutches or in a wheelchair. We really had a field day!
Here are just a few of our encounters:
One lady got very scared. She walked with a cane and her foot was hurting her. She very nonchalantly accepted my offer to pray for her. “Sure you can pray for me.” she said with an attitude like, what could that possibly do for me? The minute I bent down, laid my hand on her foot and commanded the pain to go, I looked up and her casual demeanor and smiling face had suddenly disappeared and was replaced by an expression of horror. As she backed away from she exclaimed: “What are you? You are scaring me!” I assured her that it wasn’t me but Jesus who had just instantly healed her to prove to her that He loves her by setting her free of her pain. She turned around and walked away quickly, quite confused and quite without using her cane! Continue reading Festival Of Healings→
I bumped into Paul at the grocery store while out shopping with my wife. He was a senior gentleman with a slight beard sitting in his wheelchair and just standing still in front of an aisle.
“Excuse me sir, I noticed your wheelchair. I’m a minister and I pray for people and God heals them. Can I pray for you, sir?” I offered him.
“You want to pray for me?” he asked surprised and continued a bit cynical, “You mean that there are still people in this world who actually care?” “Of course!” I replied. “Jesus loves you and He cares about you. What can I pray for for you?” Continue reading It Feels Really Good In Here→
It is very unusual these days that I go anywhere and not find someone who is in need of prayer for healing. Canes, wheelchairs, crutches…they’re everywhere!
However, this was not the case on this particular day when I was shopping at BJ’s, a local wholesale club here in New Jersey. I asked the Lord, is there really no one here that You want me to pray for? Oh well, if You want me to minister to someone, I know You that will make it happen.
So I thought nothing of it any further and gathered the things I needed to pick up on my list and headed towards the cash register. I stood on the less than 10 items line when a lady queued up behind me with a flatbed with the biggest flat screen TV I had ever seen. Wow, that is a huge TV, I commented. However, my prayer was answered when, as I turned to look behind me, there he was, the man who needed ministering. Continue reading The High Holy Days Gift→
It is always a blessing to see the men coming forward at the Goodwill Rescue Mission to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Every time we go we have a harvest!
When the service was over, I noticed a man with one leg shorter than the other talking to one of the ministers. It was quite noticeable as he wore a special platform shoe to compensate for the difference. He said his name was Charles and that he was born that way. I asked if I could pray for him and after he accepted, I sat him down on a chair, lifted his legs up and commanded his right leg to grown out in the name of Jesus and match up to his left leg. “I can feel it stretching!” he exclaimed. His leg came out quite a bit but not all the way. “Now that it started growing, it is going to grow all the way.” I assured him. He was very grateful.
As I packed up my music gear and headed towards the door, I noticed a man sitting in a chair by the door with a cane. “What’s the cane for?” I inquired. “O, it’s my ankle.” he replied. His name was Juan and he accepted my offer to pray for him and his ankle was instantly healed. “You won’t need that cane anymore!” I chided him. Continue reading 4 Healings At The Mission→
My daughter, Jamie, started a conversation with a Muslim mother and daughter we met at a flea market. She tried to share Jesus with both of them but the conversation was not going anywhere. Debating just led to them digging their heels in deeper and they were not willing to give an inch. I joined in the conversation.
“Do you believe that all the prophets in the Qur’an speak the truth?”
“Yes, of course.”
“Do you believe that Jesus was a prophet?”
“Yes, we do.”
“So then you believe that everything Jesus said was the truth?”
“Yes, we do.”
“Well, Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man comes to the Father but through me.” Do you believe that?”
“Saved from what?” you might ask. Separation from God, is the answer. “But I don’t need God in my life.” No, you probably don’t believe that you do at the moment. That’s only because you cannot see the other world yet that is hidden from you right now. But someday you will see it and your eyes will be opened. You only have natural eyes right now. Someday you will have spiritual eyes once your natural eyes have died with the rest of your body. Your spirit will live on and then you will see what you have been missing all this time. Continue reading What Must I Do To Be Saved?→
We were out on the streets in New York City with our team and bumped into a group of Empire State Building Observatory Ticket Sellers.
We approached Ramone who said he had pain in his back. He was already a believer in Jesus but had been suffering from severe back pain for the last 4 months. When he was prayed for by Josh and John, he was instantly healed and set free. He was so thrilled and was excited to share his testimony on video (see below).
He also prayed with us and received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues. He said he could feel it in his stomach. This was the rivers of living waters flowing from his belly as Jesus talks about in John 7:38.
He was so excited that he called over his friend and fellow Ticket Seller, George who also had pain in his back, and told him to let me pray for him. However, when I started to pray for George, I suddenly realized that this would be a terrific opportunity to activate Ramone in the grace of healing (it is not really a special “gift” of healing but a “charisma” in Greek or “grace effect” of having and operating in the Holy Spirit given to every believer that will simply walk in it and exercise it by faith) and let him heal his friend George .

After a week at the JGLM Annual Conference, it was time to go home. I had arranged for a shuttle to pick me up at my hotel and take me to the airport. When the shuttle arrived, the driver greeted me with a big, friendly smile as he took my suitcase. I introduced myself and he told me his name was Tucker. He had a bit of an accent but he spoke good English. I quickly learned that he was from Liberia and that he and his wife wanted to move back there next year. Liberia, I looked it up, is a country about the size of the state of Maine on the west coast of Africa nestled between Sierra Leone, Guinea and Côte d’Ivoire.
He asked me what I did and I shared with him that I was a minister. I also explained that I was here in Dallas at a conference this past week to learn how to train people in healing. “So you can really heal people?” he questioned me. “Yes. Do you have any pain in your body?” I asked him. “Oh, yes! My back is really hurting right now.” he responded. “No problem.” I said, “Let me pray for you”. Continue reading Sending The Message To Liberia→
One of the greatest biblical discoveries of all time!
Model representation of the Ark of the Covenant
The ark of the covenant mysteriously disappeared around the time of the Babylonian exile and has not been seen for 2,600 years. This is the ark that God commanded Moses to build in Exodus 25:10-22.
It was made out of shittim (acacia) wood overlaid with pure gold. With the cubit at 25 inches, the dimensions would be 5’2.5″ long, 37.5″ high and 37.5″ wide. It had a crown of gold round about and four rings of gold at the corners, two on each side. To be able to carry the ark, two staves were made of the same wood and also overlaid with gold and placed through each of the two rings on each side. Continue reading Where Is The Ark?→
David Hobday, one of our team members, was with us in New York City on one of our mission trips when he wanted to buy some nuts from a street vendor. As he was paying for the nuts, he casually asked her if she had any pain in her body. She said that she had pain in her back.
So Dave offered to pray for her back and she accepted. After he prayed and commanded the pain to go and her back to be healed, he told her to look for the pain. She politely ignored his instructions and thanked him. Like most people, she did not expect anything to happen. Continue reading Going Nuts – Lady Vendor Gets Instantly Healed→
Most people go shopping for food or clothes or something else. I go shopping for healings.
My wife likes it that I volunteer to go shopping for her, even if it sometimes takes a lot longer than usual. That’s because I seek to find people in need of prayer so I can pray for them and set them free. And the best place to find people is to go where most people go…shopping! Continue reading Shopping For Healings→
The biggest problem most homeless people face is identity theft. Think about it. In our complex society, you need a valid ID, a driver’s license or a passport to be able to buy an airplane ticket and to board an airplane. One of the requirements to obtain a valid ID is a birth certificate which, if you have no money or resources, is almost impossible to secure.
Homeless people are exposed all the time. We have witnessed the brazen theft of a cup of change from one homeless woman by another homeless thug in broad daylight right in front of our noses. She was so distraught that she started crying. However, we were able to bless her and many other people around her, who had also witnessed this atrocity, and who came rushing to her aid stretching forth their hands with $20 bills. She was so elated and comforted once again. Continue reading Homeless, Healed & Blessed→
Why is it that most Christians today do not believe Jesus?
O sure, they believe in Jesus but do they believe what Jesus said? O sure, they believe some of the things Jesus said but do they believe everything Jesus said. O sure, they believe He said it, but do they believe that He really meant everything He said? O sure, they believe that He meant what He said, but do they believe that He meant it for all believers? O sure, they believe that He meant it for some of the believers like the apostles and disciples, but do they believe it applies to today’s believers? O sure, they believe that some of it applies to today’s believers, but do they believe it applies to them as believers? O sure, they believe some of it applies to them, but do they believe that all of it applies directly to them today and to them personally? Continue reading A New Pair Of Spectacles→
