Twenty-two participants attended the First Training Session of The Elijah Challenge. Apart from the Singaporean participants, there were some who came from
On the second and third evening, the Elijah Challenge training continued with this faithful group of dedicated believers. A few more people had joined the rank. Their hunger to learn how to exercise their God-given authority to heal the infirm and share the Gospel was most inspiring. Some had been taught other ways of healing but after three nights of training, these believers said that they preferred to follow the biblical way of healing. They wanted to heal the way Jesus and the early Disciples healed. They also liked the verse-by-verse approach. That, they said, left them no doubt that it was the way the Lord wanted His servants to evangelize.
More miracles happened. One brother, with a painful elbow, was healed and the pain left him. However, the pain came back the following day. He came back again for healing and the pain left him completely. Apparently, infirmity seeks to return whenever possible and one has to continue to resist its return by rebuking in faith. Another brother was ministering healing to others but he himself was miraculously healed of his leg pain. He squatted a few times to prove that he was healed. A brother had an ankle problem and after the trained believers laid hands on him, the pain left immediately. On the third evening, a sister who had a painful right shoulder was healed but the pain returned. She was discouraged but came forth for a second time of healing. Praise God that she was completely healed. An Indonesian sister was healed of neck pain when the trained sisters of the church laid hands on her. Two Vietnamese brothers sacrificed their income and took a taxi to come with their landlady. This elderly lady had pain all over her body but as expected, the Lord healed her and took all her pain away.
On the evening of
The body of a middle-aged man had suffered from a strange disease – the whole body was like being gripped by a clamp and it tensed up. He said that for more than thirty years, he was in that tight condition. That evening, the Lord set him free. An Indonesian young man had a chest problem and was duly healed. A Hindu lady was brought by her son for healing. She had pain in her body and also her knees. According to the son, she was reluctant to come but after some encouragement, she attended the Healing Service. The Lord was so gracious to this lady and healed her from the top of her head to the bottom of her feet. She was set free and kept saying, “Thank you, Jesus! Thank you, Jesus!” We were almost in tears when we witnessed a grateful heart giving thanks to our Lord and Savior.
On Sunday morning, as a continuity of what God had been doing during the week, the Sunday Service was specially designated as a healing service. Once again, the faith of the trained believers moved the hands of God. A number of people were healed and delivered from chronic pain. Praise the Lord. In the evening, the City of Truth Church conducted another healing service. This final night was another time of miracles. The trained believers were bolder in commanding the diseases to go in the name of Jesus. A brother received relief from his toothache but was told to see a dentist as soon as he could. A man, who had imbalance in his head and some problems with his ears, received healing from the Lord. After a few times of commanding the infirmities to go, he proclaimed that his hearing had greatly improved and he felt much better. A young lady was immediately healed of her painful foot after two sisters faithfully took authority over the infirmity. A 60-year-old man who was an official from a Buddhist temple, attended the healing service upon the invitation of his good friend, This Buddhist had pain on his left arm. The Lord promptly healed him when the trained believers commanded the pain to go. Right at the altar, Pastor Alicia and others led him to Christ. He confessed his sins and surrendered his life to Jesus Christ.
We thank God for giving us all these miracles. Our faith still needs to grow into an authentic movement-moving faith. May God grant us this request so that we can be powerful witnesses for Christ.
