Sep 1, 2021 (EDITED)
I received a major healing. But I feel the fear of God in telling you about it. This is not my miracle. This is God’s miracle. SOMETIMES, We are ashamed to admit it when we are sick. I have long been part of the Word of Faith movement, and it works strongly in me. But in our movement, it is sometimes difficult to ever admit you are sick. I believe we must follow Christ’s model. When the twelve disciples thought Lazarus was asleep, Jesus cleared the air: “Then Jesus said to them, plainly, ‘Lazarus is dead’” (John 11:4).
Many have lost loved ones to Covid. This makes my celebration bittersweet.
Now, let me tell you what happened. I had just completed the tent crusade in Sacramento, when I prepared to leave for Batavia, New York, in anticipation of what would be our greatest leadership gathering ever.
How strange that I and everyone who attended were so supernaturally protected in all the tent crusades, to be personally sideswiped by one irresponsible action which was aimed against me when I was far away from the tent. But, since I got a miracle, there is no need for recrimination here. After the meeting in New York, I was diagnosed with a raging case of Covid-19, as well as pneumonia in both lungs. I was immediately admitted to the hospital.
Warfare prayer for me went up immediately from many, many saints. I am living proof of this verse: Philippians 1:19, “For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ…”
In less than 8 hours, my temperature dropped from 101 to 98.2. Then came the oxygen miracle. Struggling to breathe, I was terrified when the question of putting me on a ventilator arose. Instead, at approximately 10:40 p.m., my oxygen level began to rise. They told me I would be on oxygen for two more days, but the very next morning my oxygen level rose to the point that the nurse said, “We are taking you off oxygen now.” All glory to God!
My condition improved so radically that I was cleared to go home just 48 hours after being settled in my room. At this moment, my lungs are clear. My taste and smell have returned.
REMEMBER TO PRAY FOR THOSE WHO ARE SICK AROUND YOU. DON’T FORGET JAMES 5:15-16: THE PRAYER OFFERED IN FAITH WILL RESTORE THE ONE WHO IS SICK. THE LORD WILL RAISE HIM UP…PRAY FOR EACH OTHER SO THAT YOU MAY BE HEALED. THE EFFECTIVE, FERVENT PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN AVAILS MUCH.
