The two year old girl fell down 3 flights of stairs and landed on a pile of rocks—when the family got to her she was dead. But Sandra somehow miraculously revived. However, she began decades of physical agony—that is, until last night. She had heard that Jesus was healing in Branson…
These ongoing meetings—in Branson—are capturing the imagination of multitudes across America. People declare their healings every night—many turn to Christ.
We have attempted to faithfully report to you this unfolding miracle—without hype or exaggeration. Reality does not need hype; however, this event boggles the mind…especially tonight.
“Heaven over 9/11” was the theme. A color guard made up of Vietnam veterans marched in and led us in the pledge of allegiance. A collective lump rose in our throats as we attempted to sing God Bless America without breaking down. 4 time artist of year Doug Gabriel sang his original song In God We Trust. Then it was time for the Word of God.
I opened my message by quoting Abraham Lincoln: “…that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
I do not apologize…I am guilty as charged…I did try to incite something in the people on this September 11th. I spoke the words—but God sent the fire. I told them that Lincoln said two things that we can apply today.
1. That we highly resolve that these people on 9/11 should not have died in vain.
2. That America will have a new birth of freedom
I told them the last 24 hours had seen strange events around the world. A rainbow appeared at the foot of the World Trade Center… meanwhile in Mecca—a freak storm of wind and lightning—toppled a massive crane into Islam’s holiest mosque, killing 107 people. The company that owned the crane is the family of Osama Bin Laden. The engineer working on the site said it was “an act of God—not a technical fault.”
I also reminded them that no matter how mighty the meetings had been…the real beginning of this revival would not come until 9/11. That was the day God chose to pour out of His Spirit to heal the nation.
I told them—when it comes to revival—if you feel like a second-class citizen…no amount of tenacity will make up for it. To evict devils and establish justice, we must know beyond knowing—we must have zero doubt—that we are ordained to bring revival. This unshakable conviction is the only way that we can—come boldly to the throne of God—to plead for a nation.
I looked to my left and saw Sandra. I told her that as a young child she nearly died and that her accident ravaged 12 places in her body. Sandra told us later that right in front of everyone she began to feel a lifetime of pain vanish. Strength hit all of her joints and vital organs. She declared total healing!
God was not done. I told Sandra’s husband that he had a blocked artery to his heart. He openly stated that those were the precise words that his doctor used. At this, I opened altars and souls came to Jesus.
An utterly astounding presence of God crowned the evening. At the benediction we had unleashed an army of light into that region. The meetings are going to get stronger and more intense.
