27-Aug-2010 (Fri): Seeing Jesus Carry Pains

Well, quite a bit has happened since my last post. I'll try to make a list:
  • Me & the family sang at an old country church my Aunt Sheila goes to. Afterward there was "dinner on the grounds" if you know what I mean. While there I laid hands on 3 people for their healing. My Aunt Sheila felt most of the pain leave her arthritic ankles. My Uncle Harry felt pain relief in his leg and another elderly lady, who was going to go to the doctor for a cancerous growth on her neck, felt the heat of God burn in that growth. Can't wait to hear the results of that one!
  • Me & the family sang at a Baptist church in Johnson City, TN, where the pastor is the chaplain at the nursing home where my father-in-law is staying. After the service, he wanted me to pray for the sick. About 6 people came up. I saw an elderly lady whose legs were bound up and in pain, feel the tingling of God in her legs and felt strength return to them. She was in tears. Prayed for a deaf lady, but nothing happened that I could tell. Saw a young woman who had a migraine headache get totally set free from pain. Her jaw unlocked right before our eyes! She also had a sick member of her family she wanted prayer for. I had her hold her hands out and I asked Jesus to let her feel His power in her hands. She did! She said they got hot; she was in tears. I told her to take those hands and lay them on the sick person and not to ask God to heal, but command that sickness to leave! She said she would. We also brought my father-in-law up front and prayed for him... nothing happened that I could tell with him. Also, prayed for a woman suffering from pain in her abdomen... no pain afterward! And one more lady that was heartbroken; she felt the strong presence of God all over her.
  • Prayed for a young man who was heart-broken after a breakup with his girlfriend. He nearly fell from the strong presence of God that flowed into him from my hands and touched and healed his broken heart. He wrote me afterward that he'd never felt anything like that his whole life!
  • Laid hands on several people at the nursing home: A woman with jaw pain was totally set free. A woman with pain in her hip, totally set free from pain and felt the tingling of God in her bones. A woman with UTI felt the heat of God flow into her. My father-in-law's "bad" leg was hurting and he was begging for pain medicine... laid hands on him and commanded pain to leave... gone, in about 10 seconds! He said, "I don't need the medicine now." A lady with tooth pain, set free from pain instantly. Laid hands on a woman that can't talk due to a stroke, nothing immediate, but I keep checking on her and praying for her when I see her. Didn't even have to pray for the chaplain's pain in his ankle this time... just touched him and pain and stiffness left immediately! Praise God!
  • Keep commanding pain to leave my wife's back and daughter's back. Have success every single time, but the pain comes back after some time, however, not as bad. So we are slowly making progress.
Now, a personal testimony. I have had a very small pain in my lower abdomen ever since I fell against a bumper of a car when I was about 9 or 10 years old. It was nothing extreme, but nevertheless a pain that I lived with for 40 years. About 2 weeks ago, I had just prayed for someone and saw them get out of pain in a matter of seconds. They were amazed! I was so happy for them and me! It is so good to see these things and to know the invisible God is working through you... what fun! Anyways, after that I felt that familiar pain, but this time I thought... "I'm gonna do the 'wave-thing' that I learned from Curry Blake." So I simply held up my hand praised Jesus and then commanded this 40-year old pain to leave my body right NOW! Then I put my hand on my abdomen for about 2 seconds and removed it.

I know we're supposed to be "faith men"... but I gotta tell you all... I was SHOCKED that the pain left immediately and I haven't felt it since! LOL! A mere mustard-seed size faith (mixed with some of my own doubt) still got the job done. Jesus is awesome! What a boost!

So, I also laid hands on about 3 other people with minor pains (fever blister, sunburn, rash) and saw all 3 instantly pain free. Wow.

Then, the next day or so, I was sitting in a meeting and felt a pain I had forgotten I was experiencing, minor joint pain in my right wrist. I smiled and thought about that 40-year pain that left, and under my breath I commanded the wrist pain to leave, put my hand on my wrist for about 2 seconds, and then immediately flexed it... GONE! Again... WOW.
Isaiah 53 (YLT)
4 Surely our sicknesses he hath borne, and our pains—he hath carried them, and we—we have esteemed him plagued, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 And he is pierced for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace is on him, and by his bruise there is healing to us.
Amen, Jesus bore ALL OUR PAINS no matter how minor they are. He's a Big God.
