We were at the flea market with our team and bumped into Fermin.
He was walking very slowly with a cane. He was Spanish speaking but also spoke pretty good English. When we asked him what the condition was he said he was in severe back and neck pain. He could not even turn his head.
Margaret, one of our team members, had come for the first time to our outreach event. She had several health issues herself which we prayed for and she was set free of them all. She even received a vision correction to where she could suddenly read the signs posted in the office trailer window from a distance. As a result, Margaret said she was ready to be activated (the term we use to have disciples pray for other people and see them get instantly healed).
I asked Margaret if she wanted to pray for him and she eagerly laid her hand on his back and started commanding the spirit of infirmity to leave and for his back to be healed. Then we both told Fermin to do what he couldn’t do before.
All of a sudden he could move his head slightly back and forth. We asked him to touch his toes and he bent forward very slightly but immediately came straightened up that it was too painful. He could not do it. I told Margaret to hit it again and she did.
“Now check it out and do what you couldn’t do before.” I continue to instruct him. Now he moved his head even further back and forth and could bend down further than he could before.
“Hey! You couldn’t do that before!” I said. “I know!” he said excitedly. So I asked him, “On a scale of 1 to 10, where was the pain when we started?” “Oh, definitely a 10 when we started and now it’s a 7.” I looked him in the eye and asked him, “Did the mountain move?” “Yes, absolutely it moved!” he replied. “Well, if we can move the mountain one inch, then we can move it all the way, right?” I asked seeking his agreement. He agreed.
I instructed Margaret to hit it again and told Fermin, “We’ll just keep going until the mountain is moved all the way and you’re all set free.” Now that he was seeing some results he became a lot more cooperative and eager to keep on going. “This is a lot better than therapy, isn’t it?” I asked him, “This is the best therapy!” ” I’m supposed to go to therapy tomorrow.” he said. I responded, “By the time we are done, you won’t have to go to therapy anymore.”
Margaret prayed for him again and commanded all the pain to go. Then we instructed him again to move his neck and do what he couldn’t do before and to touch his toes. This time he went all the way down, fully touched this toes and came back up smiling. He said that the pain was down to a 4. So Margaret just kept on praying until it was down to a zero and all the pain was completely gone.
Once he was free, we asked him if he was born again and he answered that he believed in Jesus but looked puzzled when I asked about him being born again. I pulled out a Spanish gospel of John and read to him John 3:3 where Jesus says that unless one is born a again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Respondió Jesús y le dijo: De cierto, de cierto te digo, que el que no naciere de nuevo, no puede ver el reino de Dios. Juan 3:3
I told him that Jesus loves him and wants him to see the kingdom and explained that Jesus just touched him and healed him to prove to him how much He loves him. He nodded his head in full agreement.
I asked him if he would like pray to become born again so that he too, would be able to see the kingdom. He said yes. We prayed together and he confessed his sins and confessed Jesus as his Lord and Savior. He also prayed to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
While he was bending down to touch his toes, he had given me his walking cane, asking me if I could hold it. I did but I did not give it back to him until he was healed. When I finally gave it back to him, I told him he would not need it anymore. He laughed when I told him he could throw it in the garbage.
All praise and honor and glory to Jesus!
