Stories of God's
Power In My Life

Intro
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, the power of The Holy Spirit, which lives inside them. The following stories are all completely real events from my life which exemplify that truth.


Stories
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 parted.

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 Mt. 17:20, 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.

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:
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
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,

6 And has made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.


This one will absolutely blow your mind!
