I'm not officially trained in any biblical fields and am far from sinless. However, those who have a
relationship with Jesus Christ (God's word made flesh
) based on what he says in the bible can invoke, in his authority,
of The Holy Spirit
, which lives inside
them. The following stories are
all completely real events from my life which exemplify that truth.
Before I could see, my earthly father dedicated me to God as a first-fruit offering. I am a virgin
I used to get motion sickness when taking long road trips. One of these times I asked God to heal me of it. The
nausea ceased and I haven't had motion sickness since.
After graduation, I lived in Kelowna working on Big White as a construction labourer in the winter. During one
of the trips down the mountain in the boss' suburban, it began spinning out of control. I calmly said a prayer
in my head and the vehicle stopped spinning, with the front facing the right direction.
When I was still in working in construction, I told a fellow worker that if he died without accepting Jesus he would go to hell.
He died not long after that of a motorcycle accident and I do hope he accepted Jesus before then. His name was Corey.
Soon after ceasing construction work, I decided to memorize every bible verse that was vague or related to nature, in order to
allow me to think in ambiguous ways. The reason was so that I could make poetry about Michelle Sparrow, who I used to be attracted
to, as she is married, and I now consider a sister. After a few weeks of doing this for the majority of each day, I had a taste
of God's love. I felt both undeserving and intensely thankful for what he had done for me on the cross with Jesus, and a love for
me, which both caused me to fall down and start shaking
and crying out of joy. My website was inspired by those verses
, which are the heart of it. The aim of my website is to touch others in the
same way that I was by God.
Another time I felt incredibly elated after pondering the fact that the rapture is likely to
happen very soon
It seemed as though it was going to be just another Sunday. After waking, my step-father said "We're going to church."
I said something to the effect of "I don't feel like going." "I think it's a good idea that you come," he replied.
I said "Alright," as I'm not usually very argumentative. After showers and breakfast, we all piled into the family
suburban and headed for The Lion of Judah church, which is now known as LifeTree. We sang worship songs and listened
to the sermon. After the message and another round of singing most people could be seen milling about and conversing
together, except for me. I was just waiting patiently to go home, when someone I'd never met before introduced
themselves, saying "Hi, I'm Chad, do you need any healing?" "Yes," I replied, "my back hurts." You see, I had
previously lifted two heavy dumbbells off the floor recently, in order to do some training, when I felt a tweak in my
lower back. I immediately put them back down and noted a tightening in my lower spinal muscles. During the ensuing
days, it became apparent to me that I had somehow injured myself by lifting the dumbbells awkwardly. Instead of
bending at the midsection, I felt a tightness with cracking sounds. The tightness just wouldn't leave. Touching my
toes was an impossibility due to the pain, or so I thought. To continue, Chad said "Stand up," which I did. He placed
his hand on my back and told it to heal, and after a few minutes, it was starting to loosen up. I could touch my toes
again! I said "It's getting better!" "Let me show you something else," he replied. Then he said "Sit down and lift
your legs up," and I did. He explained how most back problems are caused by uneven legs. It is normal to have an
uneven skeleton. He then told me to straighten my legs, which I did. To my right leg (the shorter one), he said "Leg,
lengthen!" I observed it do as he commanded, with him urging it on, saying "More, more," until it was the same length
as the left. Afterwards, he explained that because he has The Holy Spirit living in him, he has access to the same
healing power as Jesus Christ displayed while on earth. He mentioned that he still sometimes swears, had no training
whatsoever and that every Christian could do the same, but that few realize it. My family was ready to go, so we
I have tried healing acts a few times, one on a transient who had foot rot, another on someone who had pain all over
from a particularly bad fall and the third on someone with shoulder and neck pain. All incidents were met with success,
the second with tears of thanks for relief of pain.
Another spiritual event involved brief but severe moments of depression
. During one of
these attacks, Godsword
came to me, saying "Those who call
on the name
of The Lord will be saved." The Lord is Jesus
, so I quietly said "Jesus," in my room and
had immediate relief from the negative memories and feelings. I have had to do that a few more times, but have not had to deal with it
for months now. Jesus' name - just his name - healed me of depression.
Every once in a while The Holy Spirit reminds me of bible verses
relating to what the pastor at church says,
sometimes beating him to the conclusion. I never see his notes, despite his suspicion of such. I told him to take it as confirmation
of his message.
During the summer of 2015, while I was living with my parents, I went to Saanichton's Centennial Park to get a tan. As I was laying
under the sun, I became angry about North Korean leaders' treatment of those in their country. I prayed
that God would punish those responsible for those abuses. Later, in 2017, America
tightens sanctions on North Korea, and sends most of its navy to surround it.
On May 31, 2016, I took the bus to visit my mom and step-father in Saanichton. After talking with my mom for a while, my youngest
brother IA came, as he lives there. I noticed he was limping, and so I asked him "Are you in pain?" He said "Yeah,
I have blisters from walking on my foot," indicating his right one. I explained how I was healed of a shorter leg, and mentioned
how others have been healed through me by God. I asked him if he wanted me to try the same on him, and he agreed. I told his pain
to leave in Jesus' name, then continued with saying "more, more," many times for about a minute. Then I told him to say "By his
stripes I am healed," which he did. I asked him "How's that feel?" to which he replied "Wow, the pain's gone! I honestly didn't
think anything would happen!"
In 2016, I said to predicted
that "The Lord is really going to bless you," to someone who was going through
much difficulty. Not even a year later, she got married, and no one saw it coming, not even her!
In January of 2017, I had a particularly bad headache for most of the day, and nothing I did to relieve it worked. I said
"by his wounds I am healed," and it was instantly gone!
In 2008, I was diagnosed with a pilonidal sinus, which is essentially an inside-out bubble of skin underneath normal skin. The
cyst became infected over time, so I had surgery on it, but all they could do was cut into it so it would drain. After a while I
became tired of popping it so it to drain it, I decided to thank God in advance for causing it to come out repeatedly, until it
did. On the morning of September first, I found 2 little shrivelled things near where the sinus used to drain, which was the core
of it. Thankful prayer
works very well!
A few years ago, possibly in 2015/2016, my sister in The Lord and close friend, RS, mentioned how her mother was so very kind to her
over the phone, and how she thought of me then. She asked me if I prayed for her, as she requested during our previous conversation,
and I said that I did.
During August of 2017, my other good friend and sister in The Lord TK described how her upstairs neighbour was harassing her,
trashing her things and turned off the water. After a few weeks of hearing this, I became angry that someone would treat her like
that. I decided to bring this anger to God in prayer, asking him to fill TK's neighbour with terror at the thought of mistreating
her again. On September 10th, TK told me how he wouldn't even look at her, and was straight and rigid during their entire
conversation, as if expecting danger. Bring the contents of your heart to God in prayer
and be amazed!
While living with my aunt, SP, in September of 2017, she mentioned that she was going to try and get her doctor to give her a
prescription for a long-acting pain-killer for her damaged lower back. She asked me to pray for that, and I did. Now she has what
she asked for - less pain, thanks to God.
Jesus said "I am The Way, The Truth and The Life - no one comes to The Father
except through me." I can tell you from personal experience that those who have accepted that Jesus Christ died as
a replacing sacrifice for their sins
, and rose to life three days later and ascended
into heaven, can wield the power of his spirit because of him right now! How does one do this? Well, one way is to apply
, telling, or even yelling at whatever negative situation you are in to change, whether it be
health, financial, temptation, or otherwise, describing how it should be, ending "in Jesus' name." Think of it as commanding
things, and realize it can only work if you have The Holy Spirit in you, which requires first accepting what Jesus says about
himself in the bible. It's important to be specific, and include the statement "in Jesus' name" when doing this.

1 Corinthians 2:12-15
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but The Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teaches, but which The Holy Ghost teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14 But the natural man receives not the things of The Spirit of God; for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned
15 But he that is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
"Judge not according to the appearance, but judge
righteous judgment." - Jesus
1 Corinthians 6:2
Do you not know that the saints will judge
the world, and if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge
the smallest matters?
2 Corinthians 5:14-21
14 For the love of Christ constraines us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:
15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not live for themselves, but for him which died for them, and rose again.
16 Therefore know we no man after the flesh; yes, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now know we him no more.
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
18 And all things are of God, who has reconciled
us to himself by Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation
19 That is to say that God was in Christ, reconciling
the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and has committed unto us the word of reconciliation
20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us; we pray you in Christ's stead, be you reconciled
21 For he has made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
15 And the prayer
of faith will save the sick, and The Lord will raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they will be forgiven him.
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray
one for another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man benefits much.

Now you are Christ's body

25 In this church I was made a minister according to the stewardship which God entrusted to me for your sake, so that I might make
The Word of God fully known -
26 that is, the mystery which was hidden for ages and generations, but has now been revealed to His saints.
27 God chose to make known to them how great for the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ
(the name means anointing
) in and among you

28 We proclaim Him, warning and instructing everyone in all wisdom, so that we may present every person complete in Christ
29 For this I labor, striving with His power and energy, which so greatly works within me.
15 "If you love me, keep my commands
16 And I will ask The Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever,
17 The Spirit of Truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you
and will be in you.
18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live.
20 On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you
21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love
them and show myself to them."
22 Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, "But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?"
23 Jesus replied, "Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with
24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to The Father who sent me.
25 All this I have spoken while still with you.
26 But The Advocate, The Holy Spirit, whom The Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind

11 I indeed baptize
you with water unto repentance, but he that comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes
I am not worthy to bear; he will baptize
you with The Holy Ghost, and with fire
12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the
chaff with unquenchable fire
18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing
the name of The Father, and of The Son, and of The Holy Ghost
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.

one another. As I have loved you, so you must love

34 Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are gods'?
35 If he called them gods, to whom The Word of God came - and scripture cannot be set aside -
36 what about the one whom The Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because
I said, 'I am God's Son'?

1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.
3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by The Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things
which do appear.

4 According as he has chosen us in him
before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and
without blame before him in love:
5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, in wherein he has made us accepted in the beloved.
7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
8 Wherein he has abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he has purposed in himself:
10 That in the dispensation
of the fullness of times he might gather together
in one all
things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who works all things after
the counsel of his own will:
12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.
13 In whom you also trusted, after that you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that you
believed, you were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise,
14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
15 Why I also, after I heard of your faith in The Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,
16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, The Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the
knowledge of him:

the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but
also in that which is to come:
22 And has put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
23 Which is his body, the fullness of him that fills all in all.

9 We accept human testimony

is greater because it is the testimony
of God, which he has

because they have not believed the testimony

: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
