As a follow on from my recent India/Sri Lanka trip update, I thought I would give you a glimpse of a scenario that transpired on the trip that was absolutely stunning in so many ways …
In Chennai, Tamul Nadu, the team had the opportunity to spend three days worth of a conference teaching on the truth of the Gospel of the Kingdom and how we, as saints with full rights of Sonship, are positioned on earth to usher in increasing measures of the Future Age now in all spheres of life. It was a conference where leaders – both in the church and business – gathered for both a Biblical overview of Kingdom theology as well as to partake in an activation of all we taught on. The demonstration/activation time is generally where we have a whole lot of fun and where the truth tacks traction in the hearts of the people.
This moment I am about to describe took place over two days and began on the Friday afternoon when we were stepping into the unknown moments of demonstration and activation. A girl in her twenties came forward to be ministered to and I had the privilege of praying with her. She stepped forward for an issue for herself and for her younger brother. Now, as far as I know she wasn’t healed of her own situation – there was no immediate visible change when we prayed – but God began an incredible ‘something’ as we prayed together for her younger brother. She informed me that he was quickly losing his eyesight and was close to blindness, and was nearly completely unable to study at university. So we stood in prayer together for him. Of course, we wouldn’t have immediate knowledge of any change in his condition.
The next day, Saturday, we were ending the conference in another venue with the group and, while praying at the end of the mornings ministry the same girl came forward, but this time with her younger student brother. There had been no change, yet … This young man had degenerative cornea disease and he could hardly see, and he had come forward expectant for breakthrough. So, we prayed … I prayed with about 8 observers/participants … once, no change … again, and he said there was a slight change … so, we went for it again, and this time I could see something happened by the expression on his face. The young student was starting to see much better. Ah! We were all excited. He said it was at about 70% in his estimation. So, we went at it for a fourth time. This time, as he opened his eyes after praying, he was really blown away. He said his sight was perfect. The best ever!!!! He, as well as us all, was so excited as he thanked Jesus for the restoration of his sight. But over his shoulder I saw his older sister standing there with tears streaming down her face as she witnessed her brother’s restoration. It was as if her faith had opened the door for his healing!!!
But, it was about to get a whole lot better. Watching this whole moment was another young man who had great knee problems. In his late teens he was completely unable to bend his knees. Not sure what that was all about but it was about to change. So, we pulled him into the circle and this is when it became so beautiful. I was prompted to grab the young student who had just been healed and get him to lay hands on this bloke’s knees which he hesitantly did. I placed my hand on his shoulder as he prayed a simple prayer. Ha ha!!! This young student who had just received his healing had the joy and privilege of being used by the Holy Spirit to administer healing for the first time … because this other young man was now bending completely and jumping as all the pain and discomfort had been completely removed. What an amazing sight … the newly healed got his first healing!!!! Everyone was so ‘pumped’ by this as they witnessed the kingdom coming.
This was a most amazing moment amongst many and I trust it encourages you immensely!!
