Amazing Healing on the streets of MA!

Link

Check out this testimony from my friend Garth with JGLM ministries, preaching and healing on the streets last week in MA….

I was out on the streets with some people from my team and we came upon a sidewalk ice cream vendor who needed physical healing in his rib cage after an accident/injury. I put my hands on him and he was healed, pain-free, and could breath deeply again.

He was a believer, but not baptized in the Spirit, so I offered to pray over him for that. He accepted, was baptized in the Spirit, and spoke in tongues.

A few minutes later a customer came by, and I found out that the customer had knee pain. That’s when I started recording this video. I told the ice cream vendor to put his hands on the guy’s knee and heal him. He did, and the customer’s knee was instantly healed. The ice cream vendor was overwhelmed by the power of God and in tears. It was certainly a life-changer for him.

(and if that wasn’t cool enough, don’t miss the amazing prophetic words spoken by this ice cream vendor – wow!)

John G Lake on Healing

The struggle of the centuries has been to free the soul from narrow interpretations. Jesus has sometimes been made to appear as a little bigot; sometimes as an imposter. The world is still waiting to see him as he is. Jesus the magnificent, Jesus the giant, Jesus the compassionate, Jesus the dynamic-the wonder of the centuries.

Take the shackles off God.

Let him have a chance to bless mankind without limitations. As a missionary I have seen the healing of thousands of heathen. Thus was Christ’s love and compassion for the lost world revealed. And thus the writer was assisted into the larger vision of a world Redeemer whose hand and heart are extended to God’s big world and every man, saint, and sinner, is invited to behold and love Him…….

Healing is by degree, based on two conditions. First, the degree of healing virtue administered. Second, the degree of faith that gives action and power to the virtue administered.

The word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.-Hebrews 4:2

The miracles of Jesus have been the battleground of the centuries. Men have devoted their lives and endeavored to break down Faith in miracles. More believe in miracles today than ever before.

Pseudo-science declares miracles impossible. Yet the biggest men in the scientific world are believers in the supernatural and know that miracles are the discovery, the utilization of which the material scientist knows nothing.

The miracle realm is man’s natural realm. He is by creation, the companion of the miracle-working God. Sin dethroned man from the miracle-working realm, but through Grace is coming into his own.

It’s been hard for us to grasp the principles of this life of faith. In the beginning, man’s spirit was the dominant force in the world. When he sinned, his mind became dominant; sin dethroned the spirit and crowned the intellect.

But Grace is restoring the spirit to its place of Dominion. When man comes to realize this, he will live in the realm of the supernatural without effort. No longer will faith be a struggle, but a normal living in the realm of God. The spiritual realm places man where communion with God is a normal experience. Miracles are then his native breath.

No one knows to what extent the mind and the spirit can be developed. We have been slow to come to a realization that man is a spirit and his spirit nature is his basic nature. We have sought to educate him along educational lines, utterly ignoring the spiritual, so man has become a self-centered, self-seeking being.

Man has lost his sense of relationship and responsibility toward God and man. This makes him lawless. We cannot ignore the spiritual side of man without magnifying the intellectual and the physical. To do this without the restraint of the Spirit is to unleash sin and give it dominance over the whole man. There must be a culture and development of the spiritual nature to a point where it can enjoy fellowship with the father God. It is a above mind, as God is above nature.

Man’s intellect is ever conscious of supernatural forces that he cannot understand. He senses the spirit realm and longs for its freedom and creative power, but cannot enter until changed from self and sin; the spirit enthroned and in action rather than the intellect – spirit above both mind and matter.

The life of God, the Spirit of God, the nature of God, are sufficient for every need of man. In the highest sense of the word, he is “real” Christian who’s body, soul, and spirit alike are filled with the life of God.

Healing in any department of nature, whether spirit, soul, or body is but a means to an end. The object of healing his health, abiding health of body, soul, and spirit. The healing of the spirit unites the spirit of man to God for ever. The healing of the soul corrects psychic disorder and brings the soul processes into harmony with the mind of God. And the healing of the body completes the union of man with God when the Holy Spirit possesses all.
John G. Lake

Is it true today God is abandoning the “virtue that went out of him and healed them all” for medical science? Would it not be abandoning the perfect for the imperfect?

Current Healing testimonies from John G Lake Ministries JGLM as read by the Curry Blake

Curry Blake took over the JGLM organization as John’s predesessor many years ago, and works tirelessly around the world teaching healing in the DHT (Divine Healing Technician School) which was started by John G Lake at the turn of the century. Curry says they currently receive about 20,000 healing testimonies per month from all the DHT’s currently laying hands on the sick around the USA and the world. This organization although very humble and quiet in notoriety, may be the single largest organization training and creating disciples who walk in faith to heal the sick, cast our demons, and raise the dead!

John G Lake Testimony: Tumor Dissolves Overnight

Link

From the book Spiritual Hunger and other sermons by: John G. Lake.

John_G._Lake
“…Recently a dear woman was present in our meeting with a tumor that her physicians had believed to be an unborn child. The physicians had been fooled by a movement which they had considered similar to life movement. They believed the woman would become a mother, until the normal time of pregnancy had long passed. She came with her nurse to the healing rooms and old me her symptoms. She was the first one to be prayed for at the close of the service.

“When I awoke this morning I was perfectly normal.”

The next day she returned and said, “Mr. Lake, I want you to see me. I have my corset on. I am perfectly normal. When I went to bed I was not aware that anything had taken place, except that the choking had ceased and I felt comfortable, but I was not aware of any decreasing in my size. When I awoke this morning I was perfectly normal.” I said, “How did the tumor disappear? Was it in the form of a liquid?” She said, “No, nothing came from my person.” Where did a great tumor like that go? What happened to it? The living Spirit of God absolutely dematerialized the tumor and the process was accomplished in one night while the woman slept. That is one of God’s methods of surgical operations, isn’t it?”
YES, Yes it is. Praise God.

JOHN G. LAKE Healing:
The Church at Spokane
Sept 29, 1918
SUNDAY EVENING, 8 O’CLOCK.

In Paul’s MATCHLESS defense before Agrippa, the governor, he exclaimed: “Why should it be thought a thing impossible that God should raise the DEAD?”

His knowledge of God and the conscious almightiness of the Holy Spirit’s power was so real in him that doubt had disappeared and limiting of God had ceased.

The modern world has not yet acquired that unlimited spirit of faith in God. But here and there throughout the world we see a soul coming to maturity in faith. They have an advanced vision. They declare a possibility. They demonstrate a superiority of faith. They manifest a greater measure of Spiritual power.

John Knox prayed for a nation and received an answer. He prayed “Give me Scotland or I die.” He saw Scotland renewed in the life of God.

Martin Luther prayed for his friend, David Melanthon, when he was dying, and God healed him.

St. Patrick of Ireland, a man of apostolic power, prayed for the deliverance of Ireland from Druid worship and the banishment of snakes that then invested the island and destroyed many lives. Druidism gave place to Christianity. The snakes disappeared and have never returned and a testimony of the power of prayer, and faith in God was established in the character of the people of Ireland.

John Wesley, the found of Methodism, prayed not only for the healing and salvation of men and received the answer, but also for his lame horse, and the horse was instantly healed.

Rev. Lake and his associates prayed for Grover Ridson of 914 Rockwell avenue, Spokane, and God performed one of the most remarkable miracles of healing that is known to history. When Baby Grover was born, he was found to have a closed head; the opening in the top of the head that permits the skull to expand was closed. The brain grew, forcing the skull UPWARD THREE INCHES, like the ridge of a house roof. The forehead was forced upward in the same manner and the back of the head likewise.

The pressure on the brain caused paralysis of the right side and leg, also the foot. the CHILD WAS DUMB, and could not speak.

Medical science could give no relief or offer a cure.

Surgical science said: Wait unitll he is 10 ears old then we will cut the skull into eight sections and put a plate over his head to cover the brain.

Surgeons frankly said: “We fear such an operation may destroy his life, but it is his only chance.”

Then the parents in distress turned to the church and pastors, but they told them, “God does not hear prayer for healing now; that was to prove to the people in Jesus’ day that He was divine.”

The father said: “If he healed my stricken son it would prove to ME that He is DIVINE NOW.”

Then hope came. The mother (who was severely afflicted came to Rev Lake’s Healing Rooms and was Healed. FAITH GREW. Her daughter Alice was partially blind, and could only see by the use of the most powerful glasses. She was stricken with appendicitis. When suffering tortures, his hands were laid upon her in Jesus’ name, and she was healed .

Then Grover was brought to the Healing Rooms. As Rev. Lake ministered to him the second time the paralysis was destroyed. He could walk like other children. Then the head began to come down and expand normally in a short time he could speak like other six-year-old children.

God’s work is perfect. He is wholly well. And the boy, his parents, his family, the neighborhood, the city of Spokane, and the world is better because Jesus Christ was honored as savior and healer still.

History of John G. Lake

A Man of Healing

John G. Lake 	A Man of Healing    </p> <p> If there was ever a man who walked in the revelation of “God in man,” it was John G. Lake. A man of purpose, vision, strength and character, his one goal in life was to bring the fullness of God to every person. He often said that the secret of heaven’s power was not in the doing, but in the being. He believed that Spirit-filled Christians should enjoy the same type of ministry Jesus did while living on earth, and that this reality could only be accomplished by seeing themselves as God saw them. John G. Lake lived his life and fulfilled his ministry in the earth with this type of spiritual understanding. If we would just grasp the reality of our position through Jesus Christ, as Lake did, every nation would ring with the praises of God.

  • was responsible for raising over 1,000,000 converts, 625 churches and 1,250 preachers in five years of ministry.
  • because of his resurrection revelation, had a deadly plague germ die in his hand, yet at the start of his ministry thought one could only be healed in Dr. Dowie’s Healing Home.
  • had such an incredible healing ministry, that according to statistics, the U.S. Government declared his city, Spokane, Washington, to be the healthiest city in America.

John G. Lake was known as God’s “Apostle to Africa”. Born in Canada in 1870, his family soon relocated to the United States, where he grew up. His healing and preaching ministry spanned the years 1898 (when he saw his wife instantly healed under the ministry of John Alexander Dowie) until his death in 1935. In 1908, God sent him to Africa, where his anointed miracle ministry resulted in what has been described as “the most extensive and powerful missionary movement in all Africa.” As Gordon Lindsay wrote, “during that time he spent five history-making years in South Africa, engaged in a ministry which in some respects rivaled that of the Early Church.” Upon his return to America, Lake established a ministry in Spokane, Washington which resulted in no less than 100,000 astounding miracles of healing within the space of five or six years. He then established a similar work in Portland, Oregon, which also attracted widespread attention.

John G. LakeLike Smith Wigglesworth [see reference below], John G. Lake had already experienced mighty breakthroughs, powerful anointings and a real calling from God for many years before Azusa Street [see reference below] and the Pentecostal Revival [see reference below]. The following is a condensed account of the spiritual hunger and preparation that Lake was taken through by God, near the beginning of the most anointed period of his ministry. (Taken from the book, ‘John G. Lake – Apostle to Africa’, compiled by Gordon Lindsay, and told in Lake’s own words):

“Eight years passed after God revealed Jesus the Healer to me. I had been practicing the ministry of healing. During that eight years every answer to prayer, every miraculous touch of God, every response of my own soul to the Spirit had created within me a more intense longing for an intimacy and a consciousness of God, like I felt the disciples of Jesus and the primitive church had possessed… Shortly after my entrance into the ministry of healing, while attending a service where the necessity for the Baptism of the Spirit was presented, as I knelt in prayer and reconsecration to God, an anointing of the Spirit came upon me. Waves of Holy Glory passed through my being, and I was lifted into a new realm of God’s presence and power. After this, answers to prayer were frequent and miracles of healing occurred from time to time. I felt myself on the borderland of a great spiritual realm, but was unable to enter in fully, so my nature was not satisfied with the attainment…” (Pg 16).

“Hundreds, and hundreds of people were healed by the power of God during these ten years. But at the end of that ten years, I believe I was the hungriest man for God that ever lived. There was such a hunger for God that as I left my offices in Chicago, and walked down the street, my soul would break out, and I would cry, ‘Oh God!’ I have had people stop and look at me, and wonder. It was the yearning passion of my soul, asking for God in a greater measure than I knew. But my friends would say, ‘Mr. Lake, you have a beautiful Baptism of the Holy Ghost.’ Yes, it was nice as far as it went, but it was not answering the cry of my heart. I was growing up into a larger understanding of God, and my own soul’s need. My soul was demanding a greater entrance into God, His love, Presence, and Power. And then one day an old man strolled into my office, sat down, and in the next half hour, he revealed more of the knowledge of God to my soul than I had ever known before. When he left I said, ‘… God, if that is what the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with tongues does, I am going to possess it.’ Oh the wonder of God, that was then revealed to my heart!…

“Finally I was led to set aside certain hours of the day that I dedicated to God, as times of meditation, and prayer. Thus a number of months passed, until one morning as I knelt praying, the Spirit of the Lord spoke within my spirit, and said, “Be patient until autumn.” My heart rejoiced in this encouragement and I continued my practice of meditation and prayer as formerly. It became easy for me to detach myself from the course of life, so that while my hands and mind were engaged in the common affairs of every day, my spirit maintained its attitude of communion with God… I said, ‘God, if you will baptize me in the Holy Spirit, and give me the power of God, nothing shall be permitted to stand before me and a hundred-fold obedience.

“I prayed for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for nine months, and if a man ever prayed honestly, and sincerely in the faith, I did. Finally one day I was ready to throw up my hands, and quit. I said, ‘Lord, it may be for others, but it is not for me. You just cannot give it to me.’ I did not blame God. One night a gentleman by the name of Pierce said, ‘Mr. Lake, I have been wishing for a long time you would come over, and we would spend a night in prayer together. We have been praying for the Baptism for a whole year and there is not one of us baptized yet. Brother, I do not believe that you are either, so we can pray for one another.’ I was so hungry to pray, so I went with all intentions of praying for the rest, but I had not been praying five minutes until the light of God began to shine around me, I found myself in a center of an arc of light ten feet in diameter, the whitest light in all the universe. So white! Oh how it spoke of purity. The remembrance of that whiteness, that wonderful whiteness, has been the ideal that has stood before my soul, of the purity of the nature of God ever since.

“Then a Voice began to talk to me out of that light. There was no form. And the Voice began to remind me of this incident, and that incident of disobedience to my parents, from a child; of my obstinacy, and dozens of instances when God brought me up to the line of absolutely putting my body, soul, and spirit upon the altar forever. I had my body upon the altar for ten years, and I had been a minister of the Gospel. But when the Lord comes, He opens to the soul the depths that have never been touched in your life. Do you know that after I was baptized in the Holy Ghost, things opened up in the depths of my nature that had remained untouched in all my life, and that which was shadowy, distant, and hazy became real. God got up close and let His light shine into me.

“Shortly after this experience, one afternoon a brother minister called, and invited me to accompany him to visit a lady who was sick. Arriving at the home we found the lady in a wheel chair. All her joints were set with inflammatory rheumatism. She had been in the condition for ten years…While my friend was conversing with her, preparing her to be prayed with, that she might be healed, I sat in a deep chair on the opposite side of a large room. My soul was crying out to God in a yearning too deep for words, when suddenly it seemed to me, that I had passed under a shower of warm tropical rain, which was not falling upon me, but through me. My spirit, and soul and body under this influence soothed into such a deep still calm, as I had never known. My brain, which had always been so active, became perfectly still. An awe of the presence of God settled over me. I knew it was God.

“Some moments passed; I do not know how many. The Spirit said, ‘I have heard your prayers, I have seen your tears. You are now Baptized in the Holy Spirit.’ Then currents of power began to rush through my being from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet. The shocks of power increased in rapidity, and voltage. As these currents of power would pass through me, they seemed to come upon my head, rush through my body, and through my feet into the floor… Even at this late date, the awe of that hour rests upon my soul. My experience has truly been as Jesus said that He shall be within you ‘a well of water, springing up into everlasting life.’ That never-ceasing fountain has flowed through my spirit, soul, and body day, and night, bringing salvation, and healing, and the Baptism of the Spirit in the power of God to multitudes.

“Shortly after my Baptism in the Holy Spirit, a working of the Spirit commenced in me, that seemed to have for it’s purpose the revelation of the nature of Jesus Christ to me and in me. Through this tuition and remolding of the Spirit a great tenderness for mankind was to awaken in my soul. I saw mankind through new eyes. They seemed to me as wandering sheep, having strayed far, in the midst of confusion, groping and wandering hither and thither. They had no definite aim and did not seem to understand what the difficulty was or how to return to God. The desire to proclaim the message of Christ, and demonstrate His power to save and bless, grew in my soul until my life was swayed by this overwhelming passion.” (Pg 16-20).

“I found that my life began to manifest in the varied range of the gifts of the Spirit. I spoke in tongues by the power of God, and God flowed through me with a new force. Healings were of a more powerful order. Oh, God lived in me; God manifested in me; God spoke through me. My spirit was energized. I had a new comprehension of God’s will, a new discernment of spirit, and a new revelation of God in me.

“Then a new wonder manifested. My nature became so sensitized, that I could lay hands on any man, or woman, and tell what organ was diseased, and to what extent, and all about it. I tested it. I went into hospitals where physicians could not diagnose a case, touched a patient, and instantly I knew the organ that was diseased, its extent, condition, and location. And one day it passed away. A child plays with a toy, and his joy is so wonderful, he sometimes forgets to eat.”

Before obeying the call into full-time ministry, Lake felt the need to dispose of his very successful business interests. He sold everything, giving the money to God’s work, and embarked on full-time ministry with a heart full of the fire of God. Soon afterward, when he was ministering in a city in Northern Illinois, God spoke to him clearly and distinctly: “Go to Indianapolis. Prepare for winter campaign. Get a large hall. In the Spring you will go to Africa.”

John G. Lake continues: “One morning when I came down to breakfast, I found my appetite had disappeared. I could not eat. I went about my work as usual. At dinner I had no desire to eat, and no more in the evening. This went on till the third day. But toward the evening of the third day, an overwhelming desire to pray took possession of me. I wanted only to be alone to pray. Prayer flowed from my soul like a stream. I could not cease praying. As soon as it was possible to get to a place of seclusion, I would kneel to pour out my heart to God for hours. Whatever I was doing, that stream of prayer continued flowing from my soul … On the night of the sixth day of this fast, that the Lord had laid on me, while in the act of washing my hands, the Spirit said, ‘How long have you been praying to cast out demons?’ and I replied, ‘Lord a long time.’ And the Spirit said, ‘From henceforth, thou shalt cast out demons.’ I arose and praised God.” (Pg 21). An opportunity to test this newly-given anointing to cast out demons came the following Sunday, when a violently insane man was brought to Lake, who commanded the demon to come out of him in Jesus’ name. The man was instantly delivered, and two days later was released from the institution that he had been confined in.

In April 1908, Lake and his family left for South Africa. Though they had no visible means of support, they were miraculously provided for every step of the way. And thus began a tremendous Revival, with mighty healings, miracles and deliverances, which was to profoundly impact the African continent for years to come, even long after Lake was gone. In 1913, following the tragic death of his wife, Lake returned to America, but by this time the torch had also been passed on to Elias Letwaba and others in Africa, and the work went on there, in great power. Lake continued his ministry in North America until his death in 1935, and like Smith Wigglesworth, he fought an outstanding fight and ran a great race, right to the very end.

John G Lake Diary Entry – Testimonies of Casting out demons 1910

Thursday Nov. 24, 1910
A remarkable case of casting out a Devil took place after the evening service. A Mr. Cornelious possessed of a devil for about 1-1/2 years said, that in a vision, God shewed him brother Gordon Hinds and said he was to come to our Tabernacle and that brother Hinds and brother Lake would lay hands on him and cast the devil out. We did. As we prayed, he fell backward on top of the platform, then slipped down into a sitting (position) on the floor with his back against the platform the devil caused him to cry out and fight with his fists but in a few minutes, but he was overpowered by the by the Holy Ghost and cast out. Throughout the struggle brother Lake held his head firmly between his hands and at the same time in the name of Jesus commanding the devil to come out which he did. When the Devil was cast out the Glory and praise of Jesus filled his Soul in a few minutes the Holy Ghost had such possession of him. He spoke in Tongues and Praised Jesus. J. G. L.

Monday, Nov. 28, 1910, at 4:00 p.m. I was called by Bro. Hunt to come to his home at once a Woman was in Violent fits of insanity . I hastened to the home as we prayed the dear Lord cast out the insane devils and when I left she was laying quiet and preparing to sleep it was a glorious deliverance the Spirit came upon me giving me a great and intense sense of dominion . Bro. and sister Hunt, and Bro. Rothchild had been praying with her for hours but had not sufficient dominion to cast the devil out. But being encouraged by my presence prayed with great power. The Lord united our hearts in a great unity of faith the woman’s name was Farmer .

Tues., Nov. 29, 1910 I visited Mrs Dockralls rooms at 56 Mosley bldg. Johannesburg overlooking the Market square. The Duke of Comnaught with the Duchess and Princess Patricha were visitors in the city the Duke was laying the cornerstone. 3000 school children dressed in white occupied the grandstand and sang. About 1:00 p.m. we started down stairs to the restaurant. Mrs. Dockrall was in front and was down about 5 or 6 steps, when she was seized with a violent spasm of Pain, her husband took her back to the rooms. I went down and ate dinner and returned to Dockrall’s rooms.
As I started upstairs I was joined by brother Gordon Hinds. We found Mrs. Dockrall suffering violently she was walking about apparently quite insane. We tried to get her to permit us to pray for her but she refused being persuaded she was not responsible for her actions, we took hold
of her, and prayed.

As we prayed, she became prostrated by the Spirit and we laid her on the bed. God answered the violent suffering ceased, but there remained a considerable pain throughout the afternoon. At about 6 p.m. as I prayed the Spirit came upon me intensely. I could feel the Spirit flow down my arm and through my hand into her body. I was praying and as I prayed laid my hands on the afflicted part, she became calm, her Pain ceased at once, and passed under the power of God. Jesus appeared to her and warned her to be brave and strong, that she was not yet entirely delivered that her suffering would return, she remained free from pain and slept till 1 a.m.

When her suffering returned with great violence, in the morning when I came out to breakfast a telegram from Mr. Dockrall my home was at 4 Millbourn Rd., Bertrams, J.H.burg, about 2-1/2 miles from Dockralls, said Helen had bad night come. signed Ben Dockrall. I hastened down, prayed again the intense suffering ceased at 10 a.m. A most violent attack came upon her she begged me to get her morphine, to bring a Dr. etc. I refused and fought the Devil with all my Power at the end of 1 hour I sent for her brother in law, to call the saints to prayer for her at about 12 p.m. Mrs.

Dockrall suddenly became conscious turned to me as I knelt at her bedside and said the Spirit of the Lord is upon you and instantly I realized it was. Again the healing virtue flowed through me again her Pain ceased. Again Jesus came in a vision to her with a Sword in His hand fighting enemies She asked the Lord, “why do you need a sword?”… “why do you have to fight?” The Lord said “for You!” when the Spirit of God left her the peace and glory of God remained upon her. I called again at night with brother Powell and found her recovering.

Dec. 1, 1910 In the afternoon I called on Mrs. Dockrall and found her almost entirely well and we Praised God.
