Slain In The Spirit And Instantly Healed


Our local church was hosting a Summerfest picnic at Modick Park in Hopatcong, New Jersey as an outreach for the community.

modick8It was a great event with live music bands, carnival games for the kids, food stands and of course a ministry table with lots of information.  I manned the ministry table with a few other folks and we offered to pray for people and would give them bibles and information about the church.

Towards the latter part of the day, one on the worship team members, Svetlana, brought a woman  over to our table who needed prayer.  Her name was Nadia and who, just like Svetlana, was from the Ukraine.   Continue reading Slain In The Spirit And Instantly Healed

Healed In Time For Her Wedding

wedding2Casey came to our home on a team meeting day to be prayed for.  She was getting married next week and could not move her back or her neck.  Not exactly how you want to go through your wedding day!

One of us prayed for her and she felt a little bit of relief, but this thing was stubborn.  It simply would not budge.  But the mountain had moved!  And if we can move the mountain just one inch then we can move it all the way!

When you minister healing and you see something move, even just the slightest bit, the demons have flinched.  They gave themselves away.  That is the proof!  They have exposed themselves and you can call them out on it.   Continue reading Healed In Time For Her Wedding

If Two Of You Shall Agree

we-agreeIf someone asks you to pray for them, what is your first reaction?

Is it something like, “O no, what do I say?  How do I pray?  What if I don’t know what to say?” Etc., etc., etc.

Instead, why not just agree with them?  That is what the word tells us to do.

Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.  Matthew 18:18-20

Back And Hip Pain Instantly Healed

back-painAfter ministering music to the folks at the Dover Mission, one of the workers came to get me, saying  that one of the guys needed prayer for healing for pain in his back and hips.

No problem, I thought, it is always a wonderful opportunity to stretch forth God’s hand for healing and that signs and wonders will occur in the name of His holy Son Jesus (Acts 4:30).

I followed her and she introduced me to Dennis.  I asked him what I could pray for and he told me that he had pain in his back and in both of his hips.  “Okay.  Let’s pray.” I said as I placed my hand on his back, “Father I thank You for Dennis and Jesus, I thank You that You love him and that You are going to prove to him right now how much You love him by setting him free of this condition.”   Continue reading Back And Hip Pain Instantly Healed

Scoliosis Instantly Healed

scoliosisWe were at the Goodwill Rescue Mission in Newark and had just concluded our ministry session.  Many souls came to the Lord that night and we had a plentiful harvest.

I was cleaning up my music gear and started heading to the side door exit when I noticed a man walking noticeably crooked heading towards the backdoor of the room.  He was literally leaning to the right as he walked.

“Hey, that’s not right!” I thought to myself.  It reminded me of that part in the Lord’s prayer where Jesus says, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”  Nobody in heaven is walking crooked like that!  So why should anybody on earth be walking this way while there are believers around?   Continue reading Scoliosis Instantly Healed

All Pain Knocked Out!

Pow.pngWe were at the flea market with Anand, one of our team members, and came across a lady in a wheelchair.

Anand offered to pray for her and she accepted.  She had pain in her knees.  Anand prayed several times for this lady but the demon was stubborn and would not release her from the pain in her legs.  But it had to go.  It had not choice!   Continue reading All Pain Knocked Out!

Instantly Healed, Saved and Baptized

It was a rainy overcast Saturday morning.  All night it had rained, even with lightning and thunderstorms early in the morning.  But we had scheduled an outing to the Meadowlands Flea Market and I was determined to go.

umbrella-dancingintherainOn the way it started pouring buckets.  I commanded the rain to stop by the time I got there.  It was relentless and actually started coming down even heavier.  I looked up and said “That’s okay.  I’ll give you some more time to do what you want as long as you stop by the time I get there.”

As I drove onto the parking lot of the flea market, the rain had died down to a drizzle.  Thank you, Lord!  Well, I was here but not many people were.  Even the vendors were only a handful compared to how many there usually are.  Well, at least I’m here, I thought to myself, Lord, the rest is up to you.   Continue reading Instantly Healed, Saved and Baptized

God Heals Birth Defects

god-heals-birth-defectsToday I would like to share with you an excellent book from the ministry of Andy Hayner.  Andy has his own ministry called Full Speed Impact Ministries and he is also a fellow Life Team Servant with John G. Lake Ministries.

Contrary to popular belief, Andy proves from personal experience that God does not cause birth defects.  Rather, He is the healer of them.  In his book God Heals Birth Defects, co-authored with  Margaret Weishuhn, you will read first hand testimonies written by parents from around the world who are seeing God heal their children from diagnoses such as cerebral palsy, autism, down syndrome and other birth defects.

Finally, here is a book that has been a great source of comfort and answers to parents of children who are suffering with these conditions.  This book explains in full detail how to correct their child’s condition, heal them and miraculously transform their lives.  If you are looking to minister to children with these conditions, then this book will empower you to minister healing to those afflicted with birth defects.  As Andy says: “We want to give parents and grandparents the book that we wish someone would have given to us the moment our child was born diagnosed with a birth defect.”   Continue reading God Heals Birth Defects

Spiritual Fireworks

My wife and I were invited to come watch the fireworks over the lake at our friends’ house for the fourth of July.  It turned out to be a fellowship of believers of a local church we attend.

We came to find out that unfortunately the fireworks were canceled due to the weather conditions.  Thunder and lightning storms were in the forecast and sure enough, as we sat on the porch enjoying the vista of the lake, it started pouring and we all quickly retreated indoors.

My wife was chatting up a storm inside with some of the women and I just happened to be standing by two other ladies I had never met before, Gayle and Elizabeth.  We started talking about dogs and cats and showing each other pictures of our pets.  Then we switched to discussing different religions when Gayle asked if we could sit down because her back was hurting her.  I asked her where it hurt and she said “Right here.” while she took my hand and pressed it right onto the spot after I had offered to pray for her.   Continue reading Spiritual Fireworks

Jesus Heals Jains

jainAnand, one of our team members, called me on a Monday and asked me if he could bring over his neighbor and parents for healing.  He explained that they were Jains who practice Jainism, a religion that to us appears similar to Hinduism but yet is very different and quite popular in India.  I told him that would be fine and he brought them over the next day.

They were extremely nice and polite people and we had a wonderful time in conversation.  However, after talking a bit, I noticed that the mother was restless and in discomfort.  So I suggested we pray for her and relieve her of her pain first, then we could continue our discussion.  They agreed and I asked her what her condition was.   Continue reading Jesus Heals Jains

A New Person

James came to one of our meetings and was in need of prayer for his tooth and infection of the surrounding gum in his mouth, his left knee from a previous arthroscopy, joint issues, right shoulder nerve damage from old football injury, lower back and both hips from scoliosis, arthritis from a diving accident injury, and soreness and tenderness in his back.   Continue reading A New Person

The Kingdom Has Come Near Unto You

motorcartI needed to pick up just a few things at the grocery store.  When I came out of one of the aisles, I bumped into a man who was riding in a motorized shopping cart.  I always look to see if there’s a walking cane in the basket and sure enough, there was.

So I approached him and said “Excuse me.  I noticed your go-cart and your cane.  I’m a minister and I pray for people and God heals them.  Can I pray for you?”   Continue reading The Kingdom Has Come Near Unto You

Physician, Heal Thyself!

physicianEdna is a lovely southern lady who I met at the local church we attend.  She was walking with a cane and naturally I offered to pray for her.  When we prayed, the pain in her back left her and she was instantly healed.  She gave me a big hug and a kiss and thanked me and praised Jesus.

I saw her again a few weeks later again with her cane and asked her why she was still using the cane.  She said that she had pain in her back again and needed her cane to be able to walk.  I offered to pray for her again and she was healed once more.

Then I did not see her use her cane for a while and she said that she was fine and had not had any more pain.

However, this past Sunday, I saw her again at church and again with that silly cane.  Continue reading Physician, Heal Thyself!

Complete Overhaul Part 2

spirit-doveWell, Charles was so thrilled with being healed that he brought three of his neighbors with him the next week.  They said that Charles was dancing in front of them to show them that he had been healed and that he had not been able to do that before.

The first woman I prayed for received a new baptism in the Holy Ghost and received the gift of speaking in tongues.

The next man was instantly healed of pain in his knees and back and his anxiety and depression were lifted.   Continue reading Complete Overhaul Part 2

Complete Overhaul

perfect-body-under-constructionCharlie was brought to our house meeting as a guest.  He was very pleasant and inquisitive with questions like “Are you saying that we have no need for doctors?” and “Well, what about Paul’s thorn in the flesh?” and “Are you saying that all sickness comes from demons?”.  No arguments, just healthy curiosity about these sacred cows he had been raised with.

We patiently answered all his questions and explained that like sacred cows, these were all doctrines of men that he had learned as the commandments of men.  When it came time for prayer, he was noticeably silent.  Then one of our regulars, no doubt prompted by the Holy Spirit as well as his continual holding and rubbing his knees, asked him “Do you need prayer for your knees?”   Continue reading Complete Overhaul

Show Of Power

power-in-the-pinesOn the 14th of May, Fort Dix Air Force Base in New Jersey held its annual air show called Power in the Pines.  The “Pines” referring to the New Jersey Pine Barrens that surround the area.  The “Power” obviously referring to the air power of the many fighter jets and aerial combat equipment on display that day.

Well, with an expected crowd of over 100,000 people, we decided to bring some real power to the pines to overcome the prince of the power of the air and set the captives free.  So we brought our team and about 200 Gospels of John to handout.

We quickly noticed that the attraction was also the distraction.  Many people we approached who were in obvious need of healing, quickly dismissed our offer because ”I’m heading to the air show.”  One woman pushing her husband in a wheelchair actually yelled at us “Leave us alone!”  I knew it wasn’t the woman who was yelling and he wasn’t yelling at us but at Jesus.   Continue reading Show Of Power

Activating A Brand New Team Member

Mall.jpgAndrew, a brand new Team Member, whom I had never met before but only over the phone, met us for one of our outreach outings at Willowbrook Mall.  He told us that he had never seen an actual healing before and that he had prayed for people but had never seen an instant healing.  As we walked around the mall he witnessed several instant healings take place by the other team members.

When it came time to go, the very last person I approached was a small Indian man who sat by the fountain in the middle of the mall while holding on to his quad cane.  He accepted my offer for prayer and told me it was his knee that was hurting.  You could see that the knee was bent outward to the side and affected his whole leg being crooked.   Continue reading Activating A Brand New Team Member

Saleem Meets Sar Shalom

prince-of-peace.jpgAfter ministering music to the men at the Goodwill Rescue Mission and after packing up my stuff, before leaving, I decided to reach out to the guys directly and just sit down and talk with them.

One of them was a young man named Saleem which means peace similar to Shalom as in Sar Shalom or Prince of Peace.  I asked him if he believed in Jesus and I could tell he hesitated before he said yes, he did.  I said “Wait a minute.  You just hesitated before you said that.  Do you really believe in Jesus?”  “Well sometimes I do.”  He kind of avoided the question so I asked him “Hey, can I show you something?”  “Sure.” he replied.

Jesus Saves Man’s Leg From Amputation

Wally comes regularly to the Dover Outreach Mission.  One Thursday, the day we usually minister there, we were wondering where he was.

His friends told us that he had been taken up in the hospital with an infection in his leg and that they were going to amputate it.  When Wally questioned the doctors, they said it was not maybe, but that they were definitely going to cut his leg off, right below the knee.   Continue reading Jesus Saves Man’s Leg From Amputation

Super Outreach Saturday

We had scheduled an outreach to the flea market for the team on Saturday, September 24th, at the Meadowlands in Secaucus, NJ, when one of the team members brought another outreach event to my attention that was also happening the same day in Paterson, NJ.  It was scheduled by several churches and community outreach organizations and was sure to draw a crowd.

Great, I though, we can go to the flea market in the morning and hit this event in the afternoon.   Continue reading Super Outreach Saturday

Walk In Instant Healing

Well that was cool.  I just healed the pain in my foot instantly.  Here’s what happened.

pie-150x150We were out apple picking with the family and before we got to the orchard, we stopped into a farm store just to look around and see what they had to offer.

As I was moseying along looking at the fresh baked apple pies, homemade kettle corn and scented wax candles, I noticed a sudden sharp pain in my right foot as if I had misstepped.  You know, one of those annoying foot pains that comes out of nowhere and latches on to you for days, if not weeks.   Continue reading Walk In Instant Healing

Be A Thermostat

thermometer.pngAs a son of God, you have a lot of privileges. But they come with responsibilities.

For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. Luke 12:48b

You have been given the much.  Now much is required of you.  Whining is no longer a luxury you can permit yourself.

For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.  Romans 8:19

You are expected to manifest as a son of God.  What does this mean?  It means to show the signs of being a son of God, to display His character, to act and be just like Him.  Even though Jesus was the Son of God, Jesus as the son of man was the perfect example of manifesting as a Son of God, so much so, that He was the express image of the Father.  He even said, “If you have seen me, you have seen the Father. ”

This is not just a positive pep talk. It is a way of life.  You are much more than meets the eye.   Continue reading Be A Thermostat

Red Dot Healing

Red dot.png

This is a red dot.

I have infused it with the power of the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus for your healing.  The second you touch it, all diseases will depart from you and evil spirits will go out of you.  You will be healed.

Just like the woman with the issue of blood, she had faith that as soon as she would but touch the hem of Jesus’ garment, she would be made whole.  As she believed, she touched it and was instantly healed.  Jesus even commended her for her act and told her that her faith had made her whole, not Him, nor His faith, nor His prayers because He never even prayed for her.  It was all accomplished by her acting on her faith alone.   Continue reading Red Dot Healing

How Many Apples Are In A Seed?

Nowhere in the bible does it say to go out and make converts.  It does however tell us to go out and make disciples.

apple-seedsWhat’s the difference?  A whole world of difference!

A convert in today’s definition of the modern-day church, is an individual who repeats a prayer to “accepts” Jesus into their heart.  One of the most popular sayings in today’s church culture is “Salvation is only a prayer away.”  Once this ritual has been performed, then the whole church will rally around that individual and tell them over and over again that they are saved by grace.  This too, is what they learned and “monkey see, monkey do”.

Yet, nowhere in scripture is this ritual supported.  Continue reading How Many Apples Are In A Seed?

“It Came Back!”

psalm-103So you were prayed for and were healed of your pain.  Or, you prayed for yourself and the pain left you.  You believed that you were healed.

Now, a while later, or perhaps the next day, all of a sudden you feel a pain again.  Your first reaction might be “Oh no, it came back!”

But it really didn’t.  Let me explain…   Continue reading “It Came Back!”

Growing A Leg Out & In Again

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

Healing and Spiritual Activity Captured On Video

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

Instantly Healed Of Pain In Her Hip

We were in New York City ministering to people on the streets.

Walking Cane.pngA 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

Back Instantly Healed

We were out ministering on the streets in New York City and had teamed up with another healing outreach team.

achingbackI 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.

Chains Broken & Stomach Pain Healed

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.

brokenchainsmanThey 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.
