I’m often asked if people who are healed by the power of the Holy Spirit through prayer ‘stay’ healed. The answer to that is – YES – many do. Only ‘many’? There are numerous reasons why some people DON’T keep their healing – maybe that’s a blog for another day – but for most who are miraculous healed, their healing stays with them.
In my own life there are some great testimonies – healed of celiac disease (incurable) when I was 13, in the days before healing was even ‘around’ or ‘controversial’ in the church (no one prayed for me, I believe God was preparing me for what was to come in my future!). Then healed of a chronic back condition when I was 18, terrible constant pain caused by a hole in my spine’s neural arch – not good for a regular (and not too bad!) rugby player to have constant back pain… A guy named George Tarleton came to our home fellowship to pray for me – put in touch by ‘lifelong’ friend Clive Calver – and when I went to get my back x-rayed afterward, as George suggested, there was no hole…
I’ve been able to eat anything since being healed of celiac, and apart from ‘usual’ tiredness/exhaustion/uncomfortable beds in some of the more ‘exotic’ (lol!) countries I’ve been to, I never have backache. Celiac healed 54 years ago, hole in the neural arch healed 49 years ago! Thank you, God!!!!
I received this message from my very dear friend Yvonne Pressdee last week – she thought I’d be blessed by it (I was!) – testimony from a church she and John used to lead:
I met D**** who used to be at the Green and we were talking about you – you may remember her because she was due to go Into hospital for an operation on her shoulder the next day and you prayed for her. When she went to hospital the surgeon said there was no need for an op but if she had any more trouble, she could ring him straight away and he would fit her in. That was 10 years ago and she hasn’t rung him yet!.
Wonderful Jesus!! Thank you!!! And bless you D****, and thank you, Yvonne!!
