A big lie has stopped the church in America. To say youth do not want Christ—won’t heed an unapologetic Gospel and will shun miracles is an epic lie. The breaking news is that God has blown that lie to smithereens.
People of all ages and backgrounds packed out halls in—of all places—California! If you could talk with them, they would shout because sickness and addiction has left their bodies. They will tell you they will never be the same.
Our Living Proof tour hit Redding, San Jose, Manteca, Yuba City, Clearlake, Bakersfield and Turlock. Sit with me now and read this historic report.
Sonny and Linda Lara of Star of David Ministries led our outreach to San Jose. A Democratic State Senator came that night. He wanted to witness firsthand what we had advertised about Jesus and divine healing.
A woman stands to test her healing. She said, “the word of knowledge identified every place in my body where pain made my life a living hell…especially when I heard the part about my skin and how doctors cannot understand what is happening to me, it removed all doubt. Now, I have no pain or weakness!” I will never forget the humble look of wonder on the Senator’s face.
When I called the youth to Christ is was effortless. Instantly, the front is filled with youth surrendering to Christ.
Manteca California: The building is full of youth. We were excited to partner with Ben Lucero and Isaiah Saldivar who lead the 209 Awakening.
We would see many healings this night but here is the greatest: I am compelled by God to wade into the audience. A young man sits in total despair. Voices tell him over and over to quit trying and just take his own life. I say, “Satan has told you to quit. But God is giving you a new life!” He hit the floor under the power. When he finally got back up he had a supernatural will to live. Glory to God!
The Holy Spirit pulled many treasures out of darkness that night.
Yuba City: Three nights that combined The Bridge of Yuba City led by Jim and Kristine Carpenter and The Church of Glad Tidings led by David and Cheryl Bryan.
We asked Grandmaster Bill Jones to testify. He had come to Living Proof Concord California in the Crown Plaza convention center 3 years before. He told a heart-stopping story. He had won 57 world championships in martial arts until one day he began to shake. Parkinson’s disease changed his world overnight. He shook continually shake like a rattlesnake. On top of this, they found 4 cancerous tumors in his body. Now, it seemed, he might even lose his life. Even if he lived he could never pay the $75,000 debts that piled up.
The remarkable thing is that when we laid hands on him there was no outward change. But every day he got better until miraculously Parkinson’s and cancer were gone! Then, out of the blue he receives a $77,000 settlement! Three years later he is still completely healed. His testimony made faith erupt like a volcano!
I fully preached the Gospel. For 3 days a wave of miracle healing hit those who were sick, addicted or bound by demonic power. Youth shouted for joy as they laid hands on the sick and they were healed. Night after night, the front of the building was overwhelmed with hearts wanting Christ.
Clearlake: Teresa Stacy testified about her miracle in our meeting here 5 years ago. She was only days away from death. Her liver was 98% dead. Her blood sugar was over 400. Her heart was failing fast. She had reflex sympathetic dystrophy: severe burning pain all over her body. Her husband Jim was not able to hug her for 14 years! She had severely injured her spine in a car accident. The result: a telescoping spine that took away two inches of height.
The word came—she hit the floor and Jesus operated on her—and she was instantly healed. She was even two inches taller immediately. Every test proved she was totally healed. Her doctor said you have a liver as pure as a child in the fetus.
Her story hit a mail man in the audience dying of pancreatic cancer. He was not a believer. Besides the cancer, chemotherapy tortured this man. I picked him out of the audience. Jesus told me to say to him: “Jesus can do what chemotherapy cannot do!” He said that in that instant, the pain left and he knew he was healed by Christ. His healing made others bold to reach out for a miracle and the Lord did not disappoint.
Once again, Living Proof broke the chains and young souls ran to Jesus.
Turlock: We are with Ron and Jen Eivaz at Harvest Christian Center. We choose this venue because it’s one of the biggest auditoriums in town and because a healing revival is already happening. When the mass prayer for healing came it seemed one third of the crowd claimed they had been healed. Again, many turn to Christ.
Bakersfield was the greatest outpouring of the tour. Manuel and Liz Carrizales who lead Stay Focused Ministries are on the front line of the killing fields of Bakersfield. Drive by shootings, gang related assassinations have taken over Bakersfield. Since December 1st, 2015 there has been a gun battle almost every day.
We met with pastors for lunch. The 6 o’clock and 11 o’clock news carried the story that we were meeting with pastors to respond to the violence in the city. It set the stage for that night.
By 7 PM the auditorium was packed. This is what MMM is all about! I preached with all my might under an intense anointing. Some say that hundreds came forward. Only God knows the real number. Amazingly, we did not send the converts into a prayer room. Instead, Jesus said, “I want to baptize them in the Holy Spirit now.”
The vast harvest raised holy hands and they began to speak in tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance!
I tested our friendship severely by asking you to give us the money to build a mobile, supernatural ministry that could just keep invading. God did this through you our precious partners in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
