Tendons healed, nephew saved, pain gone!

Was at a Petrol Station yesterday and saw a man (Siphewe – left of photo) limping with a crutch and a brace on his leg. After some hesitation the thought came to me, “if you really believe God will heal him when you pray, wouldn’t you just go without hesitation?” So at that I went over and asked him what was wrong with his leg.

No more crutch! Siphewe's (left) tendons were healed, and his nephew (middle) accepted Christ as a result.

He explained the ligaments in his ankles were practically torn and thus he walked with constant pain. I mentioned Jesus can heal him and then knelt down and laid my hands on his ankles, after which he said he said the pain was gone, except for an area where one vein was still bothering him. Laid hands again and he said the pain was gone.

I encouraged him to test out his leg and he realized he could walk now without pain, and without the need for his crutch. Upon experiencing healing in his leg he asked for prayer for some other situations in his life — which I was happy to do as well.

As his family was waiting for him he got in to the bakkie (pickup truck for you non-South African’s ;) — and they drove away … however just a minute later they turned around and his sister was motioning me to come to them, and she was quite excited about how Siphewe’s leg was now healed. (Actually at this time I prayed one more time for a lingering pain in part of his leg — at which time he said it felt like electricity going through his veins, and the pain disappeared.)

She was all excited about what happened and asked me to pray for her two children (in the middle of the photo) — for protection, and other general requests. I also prayed for her son who at that moment accepted Christ in his life.

As we parted I couldn’t stop thanking God for how wonderful it is to be his hands and feet, bringing the health and healing which Jesus provided for all — both physical and spiritual … and of course the most wonderful of all — helping people begin a relationship with God Himself.

Not long after this an attendant at the petrol station introduced me to his colleague who had pain in her womb and head. After rebuking the pain and commanding healing in her womb and head, all pain was gone.

Again I left with a deep sense of deep joy in thinking about all that Jesus made possible for us to walk in as a child of God.

Broken bodies and spirits – healed and restored

Faith in the name of Jesus brings life and healing (Acts 3:16).  Here’s a few testimonies along these lines we’ve experienced over the past few weeks.  I’m sharing these with the hope they’ll be an encouragement for others to walk in and expect the same.  “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8)

1)  A man was lying on the floor clutching his heart, seemingly having a heart attack or something of that nature.  People were clamoring to organize a trip to the hospital.  I stooped down, laid my hands on his chest and proclaimed the healing Jesus already provided.  The man said a presence of peace replaced the fear that was gripping his mind.  Soon after his heart was no longer in pain, and no trip to the hospital was necessary.

2) A 70 year old man was hospitalized with blood blots in his lungs and legs.  Two days after prayer (and I’m sure others were praying as well), we received notice the clots had dissolved.

3) In a shopping Center my son and I were walking and noticed a woman on crutches just about to get in to the backseat of a car.  Knowing that love always leads to do to others what we’d like done to us, we went to pray for this woman’s healing.  After prayer she tried out her legs and said she previously hadn’t been able to step up stairs like she was just now doing.  Others observing from the car compelled her to come in as they were waiting for her, but we trust the healing was done.

4) Prayed for a man who had Tarsal tunnel syndrome (he said it felt like walking with the pain of constant pins and needles in his feet) – after prayer the pain was gone and he was healed.  He had another ailment in his arm, which I don’t remember the name of — but after prayer this was also healed.

5) A girl had problems with her jaw — it was separated and often “clicked” — after prayer, completely restored (and no more clicking).

6) While at a township in the Cape area a friend and I heard about a woman who was confined to bed due to pain all over her body.  We went to her home (a shack with a tin roof) and found her lying still and in fact, in extreme pain.  We proceeded to pray and the pain left and she was healed.

7) When leaving this woman a man called us over to his home (another shack) to pray for his mother — also in bed with pain.  Turns out she was having trouble breathing (due to Asthma complications) and had pain throughout her legs which were also swollen.  After prayer she could breath normally and she had no more pain in her legs.  After her son and the family present witnessed this, I shared that the same Jesus who healed their mother could also be present with them at all times.  They all proceeded to receive Jesus and asked Him to be present with them always.  I find that after people witness such an obvious demonstration of Jesus’ power, they no longer need to be convinced as to the reality and presence of God — they’re usually eager to experience Him in their own lives.

“And He (Jesus) cast out the spirits with a word, and healed ALL who were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: “He Himself took our infirmities And bore our sicknesses.” (Matthew 8:16–17)
