Hearing Restored

After years of problems with my hearing I finally asked someone to pray for my ears. A simple prayer was made and although I didn’t notice anything at the time, later that day while out for a walk I noticed I could hear cars from a long way away and everything seemed clearer. Later that evening I realised I could hear oncoming cars while driving, not realising that was even possible! The real test was in large gatherings where I often felt isolated from everyone as the background noise was so overpowering I was unable to even hear someone who was right in front of me. After a number of ‘tests’ with large family gatherings I am excited to report that I can hear fine and have even noticed that other people have problems hearing what is said when I don’t! Does God heal today? Yes, ask, seek and believe! Roger

Tooth healing

Early April I had a really bad toothache and went to the dentist to get it pulled .By the time I got to the dentist it had settled down and the recommendation was that I had a root canal, about $1800, or it could be pulled. The dentist said the infection had blown out the side of the gums so it would settle down without antibiotics and to come back when it’s gone. About two weeks later the infection came back again and I was really worried about getting it pulled just before I had to do a conference. I wanted to put it off. I was at a prayer group and they prayed for me. I put my tongue on where the infection was on my gum and I could feel it was really hot and Iain prayed for me and as he prayed the heat went completely out and my tooth was 90 per cent healed. It was just a little tender if I bit something on it that was hard and that’s all. It’s given me no problem whatsoever since then. Greg

Chronic Hay fever healed

Back ground: The hay fever I suffered was labelled extreme. Along with other medical help I had to double up on medication because just the normal dose didn’t give any relief.  I would also get chronic nose bleeds which required hospital level treatment to stop.  Our GP advised we sell and move off the farm which has been in the family three generations.  My final option was to stay indoors to avoid exposure, which effectively trapped inside during the summer months. 

I booked an appointment with the immunology department at Christchurch hospital, but in the mean time I received prayer for the hay fever at church and I knew something had changed.  So my test was to do the lawns, which would normally cause a severe reaction, but his time I had significantly less reaction. My appointment finally arrived at the Christchurch hospital.  Unfortunately, the test results read I was still symptomatic.  At that point my heart sank, I felt so disappointed to say the least, and came home with a suggested 3-year coarse of injections administered at hospital.  I decided not to go through with this as I still felt in my heart I had been healed.

 

It took some time to realise that God had healed me.  It was not instant, but a gradual one. Last summer I only needed to take 3-4 days’ worth of medication, which would normally be twice a day every day for the entire summer duration.  This summer I am looking forward to not having to take any medication at all.  Thankyou Jesus that I no longer have to stay indoors in the summer time.  Debbie.

Knee healed

In few years back I really damaged my knee at the skate park by smashing knee first into the railing there whilst scootering around.  My knee, had continued to ache, click in the joint and be painful when bending it.  It had been like this for a couple of years.  At Easter Camp, Iain offered to pray for it on the Sunday night.  He just said a simple prayer and all the pain just drained away!  It was amazing.  I could move around, bend it and there was no pain.  It’s been two years now and it functions just as normal with no discomfort at all.  Thankyou God.  John.

Back healing

In 1987 I went to Oxford Baptist Church to see Ken, a travelling evangelist with a healing ministry. We were all worshipping but neither Joy or I knew God yet . We sang 'Jesus take me as I am I can come no other way', that set my thinking free. Then Ken had some words of knowledge. I had a really sore back and was concerned as I needed to be physically fit to work a portable saw mill. People had responded to the words of knowledge then he asked everyone to keep their heads down. I refused and stared at him. I was about two rows from the back and had my arms folded. I was quite defiant. Ken pointed straight at me and said there is somebody here, a man, and they get a dreadfully sore back right down in the lower part of their spine, he turned side on putting his fist in the small of his back just like I did to sort it out. Ken said 'you sir, God is going to heal you where you stand'. I felt the Holy Spirit on me, I didn't know it was the Holy Spirit at the time, but I felt this overwhelming sense of love and fear and bewilderment all at once. Heat came down through my spine. The pain left immediately. I looked at my feet because I thought I'd actually come off the ground. My hands got so hot I thought something was wrong. I was freaked out. My back was healed, just as Ken said, right where I stood. Later that night I gave my life to Christ and so did Joy. Pastor Greg

Colour Blindness Healing

For the longest time our 7yr old son would get angry every time we talked about rainbows. But we never worked out why. One day when there was a particularly beautiful rainbow in the sky directly in front of the car, he got so upset. He kept saying that he couldn't see it. We just kept pointing out the direction and getting frustrated ourselves. Eventually he got so upset he admitted that he had never actually seen a rainbow. We went home and downloaded a colour blindness app and tested his eyes. He failed badly. He couldn't see hardly any of the colours. It certainly would explain some of his outfit choices!! We prayed for him over a period of a month as a family. We wanted him to experience God's creation in all its glory. After a month we just forgot about it. Then one day after a storm, he came running into the house nearly in tears. He was excited yelling that he could see a rainbow! I immediately sat him down and redid the eye test. This time he passed. The look on his face when he realized God had healed him is the best thing I have ever seen. Sarah, Sav and wee Alex

Hearing Restored

A couple of weeks ago Greg got Kylie to come up and share a testimony of deaf ears being restored that she was a part of while at Bethel. We were encouraged to pray for people with hearing problems. Years ago I had an ear infection that lasted over a month. Since then I have had decreased hearing in my left ear. Not bad but very annoying when there was a lot of background noise. I had a friend pray for me. At the time I experienced nothing unusual. However at some stage during the sermon, my left ear popped loudly. My hearing has been a lot clearer since. Sarah

Delivered from alcohol

Like a good Kiwi bloke I saw the benefit of speights beer from 14 years old. In my defense I only drunk when I was happy or sad or stressed or relaxed. It got to a bottle of wine a day and some single malt whiskey. It was becoming a problem for me and my wife Rebecca. Over time it got on top of me and I just really didn't know how it would end. It was a bit of a worry but like a good Kiwi bloke I ignored it and thought it would probably go away when I pass away. About 3 years ago I was at home during the day in the kitchen cooking with some worship music on and I was praying and worshiping and dancing a bit. I just felt the holy spirit come upon me or something happened. I can't really explain it to be fair. I wept and I wept and I wept some more and something happened and I didn't really know what. That day I didn't drink and the following day I didn't and I haven't for the last 3 years. What had happened was that the desire had left me. I still buy a bottle of wine for Rebecca but the amazing thing is that the desire to drink alcohol has just gone. God has delivered me of alcohol and its just really amazing and I feel so grateful and thankful and I think Rebecca is too. Matt

Shoulder Pain Healed

God is good! I had been dealing with pain through my shoulder that would wake me at night, ache whenever I was trying to relax and stop me from doing activities I love, on and off for years. I had been promised by God that healing would come but I needed to be patient. God started a work in my life bringing break through and deliverance from things I didn't realise had a hold on me. Then one night at prayer meeting someone had a word of knowledge about shoulder pain. I put my hand up with one other friend and we both received prayer. My friend received total healing and I was set free of a couple of spirits and my arm shot back behind me, my shoulder popped and there was instant relief!! Letting the Holy Spirit manifest released all of the pressure that was built up in my shoulder. I have not had issues with it to that extent again and if it ever starts to ache a little I claim that healing and it always improves. No matter how big or small your issue is, God has a way to go deeper and bring more freedom than what you ever expect. Tammy

Thyroid Gland

My sister, lives in South Africa, in a small country town where they recently took the medical center away.  The next closest medical facility was near Johannesburg, which is for a woman on her own not safe to drive at all.   During 2018 she fell ill and couldn't swallow her food.  Rather than seek medical attention, she just lived with it and got thinner and thinner.  She would puree everything or the food would get stuck in her throat and choke. She lived with this for most of 2018, and never told me.

I phoned her just before Christmas and she told me about her condition.  The next church service I went up for prayer to stand in for my sister.  The following week I phoned my sister again and she told me 3 days ago something moved in her throat and she is now able to eat properly again.  She said she is feeling great!  Glory to God.
