IMPORTANT: News About Latest Blog

Posted: June 30, 2011 in Uncategorized

Unfortunately, due to legal reasons, the most recent blog about the person being raised from the dead had to be removed until the case is through court. The lawyers advised my friend to make sure there is nothing on the internet regarding the accident.

This does not, however, stop us from sharing the testimony through word of mouth. Please continue to share what God is doing with your friends and feel free to ask me in person if you’d like to hear the full story. The point of the story remains the same so here’s an excerpt of the story with the Muslim and the teaching points:

Later That Week…

Thursday of the week following the accident Teresa, Ricardo and I were at the OSU Prayer House watching Furious Love (an amazing documentary about God’s power moving in the darkest places on earth) when the Lord prompted us to go out on High St. Unfortunately Ricardo had to go home, so it was just Teresa and I walking down the street at 1:30am. We prayed for God to highlight someone to us and then we saw a man walking bare foot but holding his shoes about 100 yards ahead of us. That seemed like a pretty good sign we should ask him what was going on.

Once we got up to him we asked him why he was barefoot and he began to explain that he was homeless and had broken his leg 10 months before. He hadn’t had proper medical treatment so it never healed properly and he was in much pain. We asked him if we could pray for him since Jesus Loves to heal people and he said we could. And Jesus did! The pain left and he asked us to walk with him to put his shoes on. As we did we prayed more and his crooked leg straightened up and the limp started to disappear.

This Somalian man that had only been in the States for a year extended his hands without any prompting from us and in his broken accent said “Thank You Jesus!” It was so beautiful! I asked him if he had a relationship with Jesus and he went on to tell us that his people tell him to pray 5 times a day to God. I asked him if he was a muslim and he said he wasn’t anymore, he is going to pray to Jesus! We prayed for him a little longer for blessing and left him sitting there smiling and experiencing the Love of God.

What Does This Mean To You?

  • Firstly, if you Love Jesus with your full heart you serve one amazing God! And His Spirit, the same Spirit that rose Christ from the dead, LIVES IN YOU! Wow…
  • Second, Revelation 19:10 says “…the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” That means that when one testifies about something God has done, it applies and is possible in your life too. YOU can see the dead raised and the sick healed. In fact, it’s your mandate as a believer (Mark 16:15-18). One of the churches I shared this testimony with during service had a testimony a week later of an 8 year old boy who got killed in a car accident being raised after 20 minutes of being dead!
  • We must remember, the greatest miracle of all is one soul coming into a Loving relationship with Jesus. That’s our main purpose as disciples, to make disciples.
  • Finally, God’s Love is always on time. How many times has God showed His Love in our lives, yet we didn’t see it because of our perspective, so we thought His Love wasn’t there? Look at the (former) Muslim… He had no idea the Creator of the Universe had set him up that night to be shown Love. That’s incredible! Jesus’ Love always meets us where we are, in our worst situations, and at the right time. Sometimes it’s hard to see, but be comforted in knowing it is there. Just ask him for a new perspective.
The full blog and youtube video will be reposted after the case closes, and my friend has agreed to help and provide more information and we might do new interviews for the video. Be blessed and keep walking in the power of the Holy Spirit that’s within you!
To God Be All The Glory!
