The Elijah Challenge Basic Training - English Section
The Climactic Evangelistic Healing Service
At the Evangelistic Healing Rally climaxing the Basic Training, the miracles were unusually many and powerful. The church was packed to the balcony.
Infirm people thronged to the front where the many trained disciples ministered to them in the name of Jesus Christ. Many people---we would estimate roughly 50---came up to the stage to testify that the Lord had healed them and thanked Him publicly.
There were some who were healed but who did not testify. A spastic young boy unable to walk since birth had been carried by his mother to the meeting. We saw him walking on the platform on his tiptoes.
Trained counselors minister and lead people to the Lord after they are healed
An elderly man came suffering from Parkinson's Disease so severe that he was in a wheelchair. The disciples spent much time ministering to him, but all he could do was shuffle forward inch by inch. After the meeting, two of the brothers drove him back to his apartment, still not healed. Upon arriving at his home, the brothers realized that it would take them half an hour just to get him up the stairs into his apartment from the car. And so by faith they took away the man's walker, and commanded him to walk in Jesus' name. The man promptly took off and walked briskly on ahead of the brothers up to his apartment!
As a result, fourteen people accepted Christ for the first time and thirteen rededicated themselves to the Lord. Seven people wanted to know more about Jesus Christ.
It was unusual to see such miracles taking place in a beautiful sanctuary in modern and prosperous Singapore. How can we explain it? We believe it is because of the emphasis of the Bethesda church on making disciples for the Lord and not simply drawing crowds with ear-tickling messages as is done in not a few churches today. BBTC is intent on obeying the Lord's command to fulfill the Great Commission with the mobilization of the entire body. We believe that the Lord is pleased with this church and showed it.
