Genesis 26:18 – And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after the names by which his father had called them.
The incident of which I write today follows a pattern of Father demonstrating His power on more than one occasion. I’m writing again today of someone being healed from multiple growths, usually tumors of some kind, in their body. I have witnessed Father do this so many times, and this is only one of them. I was ministering in Ocho Rios, Jamaica in the late 70’s. A young woman who was a business owner of two local shops had been attending the meetings. She was originally from India, where she had lived with her grandmother who had raised her. She had been to several meetings, had been born again, and later in the meetings was baptized in Holy Ghost.
On several occasions she had come to me at the close of a service with specific questions about points of our teaching, and each time had walked away with peace in her heart about what the Scriptures said about her question. During those encounters, I had noticed two or three marked bumps (actually large) on her face and neck. It was during the alter ministry one evening that she stood before me desiring us to pray for her healing from those bumps, telling us at that time that she had them all over her body. She had some past surgeries in which some were removed, but to no avail; they kept returning. But that evening, something was different. She wasn’t coming for a diagnosis, or a surgeon’s knife. She came to receive the manifestation of what God’s Word declared belonged to her. As I stood, quietly listening to the Lord, Holy Ghost reminded me of a similar situation I faced back in my hometown. Having been re-minded of that, I spoke to the growths, commanding them to be dried up from their roots, and that they would not return. She accepted that faith declaration over her and returned to her seat magnifying and glorifying the Lord.
The next night she returned to our services, and brought with her family and friends as witnesses, and a testimony of the power of God. She declared, and demonstrated visible proof that the growths were gone from her face and neck, and her family and friends verified that they were gone from the rest of her body. She was completely healed. I saw her again upon future times of ministry in Jamaica, and she was still healed; no growths. Can I get an Amen? There you have it. Acts 29, nineteen centuries after the Scriptures were completed.
