Son of high government official healed; $19,000 offering refused by disciple

Testimony from Elijah Challenge India Coordinator Hanok Masih - December 2011

An atheist who is a very high-ranking government official came to our fellowship with his son who had lost life in the lower part of his body. Doctors said that he would stay like that all his life. Hearing this the man cried and said to the doctors, “Please, I am willing to spend as much money as necessary, but get my son well.”

One of his relatives who is a believer and who had attended Brother Simon’s healing meetings said to him, “Jesus can heal your son. I know a servant of God who ministers and people get healed.” The arrogant atheist said, “Give him 10 lakhs [over US$19,000]. I want my son to be well.”

So the family arrived at Simon’s home for him to heal his child and also offered the money. Since there were many people in his living room, Simon took him to his personal room. When they came out, the boy was healed---walking and jumping for joy.

The atheist fell at Simon's feet. Simon said to him, “the grace of God cannot be bought but experienced.” He refused to take the money. I am not revealing his name since he is a very high government official.

Australian woman healed from irregular heartbeat & kidney cysts via text message

Don Parbery of Australia studied the Basic Training & Advanced Training via internet video
December 2011

Recently I studied the Elijah Challenge Basic and Advanced Training material over the internet. Just when I was about to finish the Advanced Training, an email came through about an unsaved daughter of a believer. The daughter had an irregular heartbeat, kidney cysts and a number of other things, seemingly out of nowhere and for no reason. God put it on my heart that I was to apply what I had learned to her situation.

I contacted her believing mother and asked whether her daughter would be open to meet for me to take authority over the sickness and/or demons and cast them out. The mother contacted the daughter who agreed to meet. Prior to the meeting, as an act of new found boldness, I sent her a text telling her that she was going to be completely healed by the only God that can heal, save and deliver.

For whatever reason, we were unable to meet (probably enemy intervention). So, I sent her a text with the command that I was going to say over her. She responded and thanked me for caring.

Her mum has just sent through an email saying that she is completely healed. She will not require a pace maker to regulate her heart and she will not require an operation to remove cysts of anything else.

Thank you for helping me get out of the boat and do what the master said I could!  I just sent the daughter another text and told her to thank God for her healing and to do business with the Lord.

I am in a very conservative church that does not believe in healing but I think that God has plans to change that mindset!

Woman Healed From HPV Virus After Studying Training Manual

Woman healed from HPV virus after studying Training Manual
We just received a testimony which we'd like to share with you. The sister's name is Tammie G.

"I would like to share my testimony with you. I'll try to make it short. I am a 50 year old married woman & I'm in menopause. In August of 2011 I had a monthly cycle which is abnormal given I'm in menopause. I called my doctor & scheduled an appointment. She took a biopsy and pap smear. The pap smear result came back showing slightly abnormal cells. The biopsy was normal. Since the pap smear was abnormal my doctor performed one more test per her protocol. She tested me for the HPV virus and the test came back positive. My doctor shared the results with me which was devastating to hear. She said I now need to have a cervical biopsy to determine if the cells show signs of early cervical cancer. Especially since the HPV virus can lead to cervical cancer.

I started praying about this immediately and decided I was going to believe God for complete healing from whatever was trying to take root in me. Prior to all of this I had become dissatisfied with the results from my prayer group. We were praying about many things especially healing from cancer but weren't seeing any results. I decided to do an internet search on healings as a way to encourage myself as I waited on God to bring my healing to fruition. I ran across your site and started reading the training manual. I read up to the point where you said to go and heal somebody in the name of Jesus.

Since I didn't have anyone immediately that I could heal I said to myself "Since I need healing I'll have to start with me." I followed the instructions and with authority commanded healing to myself in Jesus' name. I did this for a few days. The peace of God came on me and I believed that my healing was complete. I went to my doctor's appointment to have my cervical biopsy done. I asked the doctor for another pap smear test and another HPV test. A week later she called me and told me all of my tests came back normal. Praise God!

I also have a leaky aortic valve. I was born with a heart murmur (leaky valve). I had a big episode (heart failure) 11 years ago after the birth of my son. I was close to heart surgery but God healed & delivered me from it. But earlier this year my cardiologist said my heart valve showed some leakage again. I believe God healed my heart valve too. I'll report back in a few months after I have another test.

Thank you so much for the teaching. It has cleared up my misunderstandings. I'm not done reading the training manual but so far it's been excellent."

Praise the Lord for His wonderful grace!

Clay mixed with spittle restores eyesight as in John 9:6

Brother Jim Hathaway of British Columbia, Canada attended The Elijah Challenge Advanced Training in Houston in February 2008. Since then, the Lord has used him to minister healing to many people. This is one of the many testimonies of healing that happened when Brother Jim ministered in July 2011 in Juarez, Mexico.

This mom was wearing glasses and had cataracts. I was asked to minister to her. After two efforts there seemed to be little improvement. She shared how the day before she had been reading how Jesus had made mud out of clay with his spit and wanted me to do the same. I admit I was a little out of my comfort zone but complied. 

There is not much clay in the desert but after 10 minutes of searching one of the pastors found some. I asked for some water to make the paste but she insisted that I use my spit. Again I complied and made a paste and applied it to her eye lids and commanded healing. Immediately she went into a very powerful, dramatic worship time that lasted a few minutes. 

When she opened her eyes not only were her cataracts gone but her sight was restored too. She told her husband “Now that I can see you, you are more handsome than I remembered.” I cried when I heard this.

From Pain to Gain

Pastor Albert in wheelchair with walking stick in hand
Within the period of 10 years, my health condition worsened and slid rapidly down the steep slope of pain. The little known genetic disorder, ankylosing spondylitis, was taking over my life. This is a chronic inflammatory arthritis of the spine, also known as ‘bamboo spine’. It is an inherited autoimmune disease that causes the joints in the spine to fuse up and there is no cure. 

I did not realise the seriousness of this disabling disease even though it had caused a hairline crack in my spine when I was only 18 years old. As I grew older, I began to experience regular bouts of back pain and numbness of the limbs. 

After passing 40, the pain had increased to a point where it affected the movements of my limbs. My spine had fused up, causing my back to hunch. My health deteriorated further and pain became my regular companion. To manage the pain, I popped ibuprofen, a powerful painkiller. On bad days, I had to take up to eight pills – the maximum dosage permitted in a day.

Standing, walking or sitting, for a prolonged period, became a problem. Before too long, I sought the help of walking aids such a walking stick or cane. I had to use a wheelchair for long distance travels.

My Merciful God
There were nights when my back was so painful that sleeping became impossible. I had to lie face down like a turtle over a few stacked layers of pillows.

During every chronic pain attack, I cried to God for help. I had no strength of my own; I could only cling to Him. On many occasions, I had prayed and asked God to either heal or take me home to heaven. He didn’t. Instead, He brought the peace of heaven into my struggling soul. The throbbing pain did not stop but His presence helped me overcome many a tough night. 

Later I learned that God was not silent about my pain but set the motion of healing in process. How this happened could only be described as the mercy and grace of God in operation.

God’s Special Plan
It was our dentist, Dr. Thiagan Sinnadurai, a dedicated servant of God who challenged my wife Grace and me to attend a healing seminar organised by his house church. I was not keen to attend because I knew that I did not have the gift of healing. For over 20 years of my ministry, I did not see many successful healing miracles after my prayers. In fact, a few people died after I prayed.

On that hot day of 8 December 2005, Grace drove me to the healing seminar. I was not in the most amiable mood. I had work to do and my nerve was also not accommodating. When we could not find a parking space, I was elated. Now, I could miss the seminar and give a great excuse to Dr. Thiagan. However, God had other plan and He opened up a nice parking space for us. Still mumbling under my breath, with Grace helping me, I walked slowly to the training location at Bangsar.

God’s Healing Approach
That day was to become a defining moment of my life and ministry. Pastor William Lau, an American-Chinese, with a gentle Christ-like spirit, was systematic in his teaching. In his Elijah Challenge teaching, there were no strange doctrines or scary testimonies of being caught to heaven. This founder of the Elijah Challenge was not there to impress us with his theology but simply allowing the scriptural verses to speak for themselves. 

Verse upon verse, precept upon precept, line upon line, my eyes were opened. Suddenly everything made sense. Why didn’t they teach me this in the bible seminary? Even after earning a Master in Divinity, this truth in the Bible had completely eluded me. 

Why was I not told that there is a difference between the gift of healing and the authority to heal? Why didn’t the professors teach us how to use the kingly authority to do spiritual warfare and heal the sick in the context of preaching the Gospel? 

The most fascinating part was when Pastor Lau said that he would demonstrate this God-given power and authority by healing some of the participants in the name of Jesus. He did exactly that. A few participants were healed of the back pain, leg pain and other infirmities. 

Then he invited some of us to try. I remember feeling the pain in my own back and facing an Indian pastor who claimed to have three numb toes. With a fellow participant, I laid my hand on the toes and commanded the feeling to return in the name of Jesus. To my great surprise, the pastor claimed that feeling had returned to his toes and he quickly testified to the other participants. That was my first experience in having immediate healing result after ministering.

The Elijah Challenge
I was to attend the same seminar another three more times and then to take an advance training with Pastor Lau. Since then, my ministry has been completely transformed. It is filled with power and miracles which is line with what the bible says about the kingdom of God as not being a matter of talk but of power (1 Corinthians 4:20). 

Grace and I had personally healed many in the name of Jesus with the God-given authority and power. In the last five years, we have trained Christians from both the mainline and Pentecostal/Charismatic churches in seminars and training sessions. We have the joy of seeing our trainees healing the infirm in the name of Jesus and literally thousands are being miraculously healed.

Many Healing Miracles
This testimony from one of our many healing mission trips to the Philippines is among the more interesting ones: 

The elderly lady sat transfixed as after many years, for the first time, she could clearly hear the voice of her daughter. I had just placed my fingers into the elderly lady’s impaired ears and commanded them to be opened in the name of Jesus. Then to test whether she was really healed, the daughter went to about one metre behind her and began calling out words and phrases in a normal voice. The elderly lady repeated every word and phrase accurately – she was healed and she could hear clearly. 

Here is a testimony of distant healing: 

Our Chinese Service's pastor, Rev Edward Chiu's mother-in-law was in coma after taking the wrong medicine for her tuberculosis. She was in that situation for four days and she lived far away from our church in another state. Rev Chiu and I took authority over the coma by using the healing-at-a-distance approach. We commanded her body to respond to the healing touch of Jesus and also for her to be revived from her coma. About two hours later, the sister-in-law discovered that the mother had awakened. Praise the Lord! Now we know that healing-at-a-distance works also with us.

Some of those trained pastors have gone on to include The Elijah Challenge’s approach of healing in their ministries. Rev Timothy Lam is one of those trained and recently ministered in Guilin, China. His testimony came this way:
An elderly man who could not speak for many years, started to utter words after being ministered to. His wife wanted to hear him say, "I love you"... and he did. Slowly but surely, he said those lovely words to his wife after many years of dumbness. [In Chinese, the words would sound like "wo ai ni."]

This type of scenario is repeating in many congregations around the world. From Vietnam to Africa, Singapore to Dubai, Malaysia to United Kingdom, India to United States, thousands have been healed in the name of Jesus. What is so special about this type of healing ministries? If you like to learn more, Grace and I are most willing to share with you and your congregation. Today we serve as coordinators of the Elijah Challenge Asia and our primary task is teaching congregations how to heal in the name of Jesus within the context of evangelism.

God’s Special Touch
What happened to my own dilapidating condition? Without much fanfare, I was miraculously healed. While I was busy healing others in the name of Jesus, God was quietly healing me. One day, I got up without pain. For a short period of time, I still carried my walking stick just in case it was only a brief remission. After a while, it seemed silly to carry the walking stick when there was no pain and so I left it at home. 

There were many occasions when the pain threatened to return but my dear wife was ever ready to rebuke the pain for me. Today, after five years, the pain recurrence has reduced to almost zero. I still have to be careful not to lift heavy stuffs or jump off the stage while preaching. The Lord is merciful and Grace and I are forever grateful.
