Teleportation and Spirit Travel – Part 3

This is Part 3 of a blog series by Daniel Lovett, a musician, writer, and follower of Christ. It was first featured on his blog, DanielLovett.com If you haven’t read it already, check out Part 1 here and Part 2 here.

Missionaries teleporting across a raging river that they didn’t know how they would forge. A servant of God without a passport instructed by God to go into an airport bathroom in one city, worship God, and exit the bathroom in another city. A brother in Christ raising his hands and closing his eyes while leading a worship gathering in Florida opens his eyes to find himself in an elevator in China. A pastor while praying shoots up out of his body and spirit travels halfway across the world to pray for and release blessing and healing for someone. A man flying over Europe and down through the roof into an apartment acting as a comforting angel to a little girl. Chinese officials surrounding a meeting to capture the organizer for the event and the Holy Spirit whisks him hundreds of miles away.

These are just a few of the stories of what believers are experiencing around the world today.

My own journey in this started pretty young for me. I have a vague memory of flying to Mongolia as a child as a “missionary”. Or more recently flying over the ocean heading north toward England and being shown a man rock climbing simply for the sole purpose of praying for him:

In my dream I saw England and was flying over the sea toward it. It appeared as a hologram taking shape before me with all its topography (the lay of the land) and my attention was drawn to an area where people do rock climbing near the center of the country: http://www.climb-europe.com/RockClimbingEngland/Peak-District.html – and particularly toward one man who was ascending a small cliff face at that very moment.

I woke up and prayed for him.

I never knew the topography of England before. I went and checked topography maps on the internet and it was the same!

Was it “just a dream”? The word just is a four letter word we should use sparingly, don’t you think? What are you? Are you just a human? What does it mean to be human?

Before proceeding to read the rest of the article below, if you haven’t done so already, please read:

Teleportation and Spirit Travel is a subject of particular interest to me. I can’t help but be fascinated that this stuff is real (which doesn’t necessarily make it always “good”) and can and is being employed by God and also (and perhaps a great deal more) by the dark side.

I have met and talked with many people who have experienced some pretty wild supernatural experiences with God. I’ve had some experiences myself.

I am here to interact with my fellow supernatural brothers and sisters in Christ and I refuse to allow ill-founded judgements to continue any longer. I am tired of being marginalized or viewed with suspicion or rejected by others for attempting to believe the Bible and exploring what it means to be a supernatural Christ follower.

Didn’t Jesus say we would do what he has done and even greater works?

“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. 13 Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.” John 14:12-14

Do we believe him?

I hope to open up the subject for discussion so we can all grow. Is this something Jesus has for his body to do? How do you know those dreams you discounted or don’t remember weren’t real?

I hope to inspire people with the truth that a relationship with God can be the most mysterious and most fun experience you could ever possibly dream of having. I was first attracted to Christianity because a Sunday school teacher wasn’t afraid to entertain the idea that aliens might very well exist. Her faith wasn’t threatened by all the other things that could be true in this mysterious universe.

I believe very strongly in the brotherhood and acceptance of the family of God even though we are quite a diverse bunch and we all have holes in our theology -two in the hands, two in the feet, and one in His side! We are all working toward becoming the One New Man (as the Scriptures put it) under the tutelage and guidance of Yeshua (Jesus – The Word of God), the Holy Scriptures (the word of God), and the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is paramount in understanding and experiencing the things of God. Without him the things of God seem like foolishness.

“But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means.” 1 Corinthians 2:14 (NLT)

I am telling you right now that sometimes some of the most learned Biblical scholars and “experts in the words of God” can sometimes be some of the most unspiritual people. Jesus bears witness to this time and again:

Jesus prayed, “O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank you for hiding these things from those who think themselves wise and clever, and for revealing them to the childlike. Yes, Father, it pleased you to do it this way!
My Father has entrusted everything to me. No one truly knows the Son except the Father, and no one truly knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” Matthew 11:25-27 NLT

Reveal yourself to us Jesus!

Jesus said that for you to experience the kingdom you must become childlike. Open hearted, trusting, receiving, dependent children of God are the ones who get into the kingdom now and experience it… now!

Then he said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven.” – Jesus, Matthew 18:3 NLT

Jesus in this passage brings up another important point. Unless you turn from your sins you will not inherit the kingdom.

“Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

You will never participate in kingdom life (which may include legitimate spirit travel and teleporting) if you stubbornly cling to sins that Jesus died to set you free from (the devil will offer you illegitimate experiences if you choose to follow him), but if you confess and forsake your sins, you will find forgiveness and be cleansed from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9), and be fit for the kingdom’s work. Peter writes to “prepare your minds for action” because life in his kingdom is a flurry of holy and wonderful and downright exciting activity!

“Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, “YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY.”” 1 Peter 1:13-16 NASB

Yes, you get to experience the kingdom of heaven NOW… and I was about to write, ‘not just when you die’, but, in fact, I suppose you have already died in Christ on the cross as the Scriptures say and now it is Your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom! So yes, you must be holy! I came across a Scripture recently in Ezekiel 43:12 “And this is the basic law of the Temple: absolute holiness!”

Don’t fret! Absolute holiness is something the Holy Spirit does for you as you allow him to and as you are willing to surrender to God and part ways with your sin! You, the believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, are His Holy Temple in which God now resides! He has surrounded his temple with fire and filled you with his glory!

Holy means to be “set apart”, to be consecrated, to be wholly devoted. To be 100% his. To surrender ALL. This is what the Bible says is our Spiritual act of worship, our reasonable response to God is to give ourselves, specifically our bodies/temples, to him.  This is the true way to worship him (see Romans 12:1-2). So now the kingdom’s power can and will be unleashed in your life. Prepare yourself for a great deal of excitement and joy!

Christ (which means “Anointing”) refers not only to Jesus himself but also to the Holy Spirit, our Teacher. The Holy Spirit’s job is to teach us and lead us into all truth (Truth=Jesus). He and He Alone is our Teacher. Of course He will often teach us through those whom he gifts as teachers to the church but they are not THE Teacher, the Holy Spirit is. The Bible says, “Let anyone who speaks, speak the oracles of God.” God, the Holy Spirit can speak through you. It’s the only way teaching ought to happen in the church. Here are a few Scriptures that point to what I’m saying:

Jesus said, “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah (or Christ).” Matthew 23:8-10 NIV

“…for the Holy One has given you his Spirit, and all of you know the truth.” 1 John 2:20 NLT

“But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true–it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ.” 1 John 2:27 NLT

“But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative–that is, the Holy Spirit–he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.” John 14:26 NLT

These Scriptures reveal that the Holy Spirit is our source for all things spiritual. He is our “spirit guide”.

So how do we Teleport and spirit travel?  It should go without saying that our primary pursuit is not the stuff we get to do in the kingdom (miracles, healings, and possibly even teleporting) but to pursue the King Himself! If Jesus is not our first love, then we have fallen from a great height!

I am not interested in diverting people’s attention from Christ and the Gospel.

This loving relationship with Papa, Son, and Holy Spirit is what we were all made for! If we miss that, then we miss everything! I’ll say it again, if we aren’t grounded in our intimate union with the Trinity, then we are missing what we are made for!

Pray with me:

Holy Spirit, will you help me to receive the Love that Papa, Jesus and you have for me? Will you restore me to my first love? Bathe me right now in your liquid love that I may become infused with love and compassion for others and grow in affection for Jesus. Help me to grow into the realization of who Christ is in me and who I am in you and all that you pulled off for us at the cross and resurrection.

I tend to believe that our desires to experience more of the supernatural are in you for a reason. Pray for it! I think the Lord appreciates us taking a little initiative and gumption and going for something that we are interested in. Research and seek the Lord about these matters and launch into the deep with God!

As William G.T. Shedd said:

‘A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.’

Jesus promised that if you ask and keep on asking you will receive, seek and keep on seeking and you will find, knock and keep on knocking the door will be opened.

So do this. He will not disappoint if our hearts are pure and sincere.

A few Christians who have experienced teleporting and spirit travel.

Check out the following interview and testimony of Bruce Allen who I believe God specifically chose to bring this message to the church.

If you are interested to find some stories of Christians having these kind of adventures, I would recommend watching Sid Roth (search YouTube) who investigates and interviews those with these kinds of stories.

And this free book, Adventures in God, by John G Lake hosted right here on this blog! He spirit travels at least three times in this book and it is quite a fascinating read!

Ian Clayton shares his experience  – Ian really loves Jesus, he really loves the Holy Spirit, and he really loves our PAPA!

He talked about being teleported around the world to help others in need. He had stories like helping a woman and her kids find safety in a war zone to visiting and healing a Christian brother who had just been tortured for his faith in a Muslim prison. While this may sound crazy to the uninitiated, if you are familiar with the Bible, you know that this sort of thing isn’t that far-fetched at all. The truth often is stranger than fiction.

And finally the “How to” secret:

Live a life of love! Know Jesus! Be obedient and cultivate a life of prayer! Ask to experience God for yourself and keep on asking! Seek the Lord with all your heart and keep seeking! Paul writes to earnestly desire spiritual gifts. Dreams and visions from the Lord are part of what he has for his kids.

The Bible says happy is the man who does not condemn himself by what he approves. We have to be careful. I will tell you again, going out-of-body without the unction and moving of the Holy Spirit is extremely dangerous!  The Bible does warn us of sorcery, witchcraft, and divination. It also warns of necromancy (communicating with the dead). That is likely to happen as the dead will often be the ones to greet you if you aren’t under Christ’s protection and guidance. They will also deceive you. The demons have manufactured all sorts of lies (alien visitations, star seeds, etc..) they are peddling to anyone who will listen. Any old lie will do if it keeps you from coming to and fully surrendering to Jesus Christ. Their agenda is against Christ. To marginalize and ignore him. But if you care about truth at all you can’t afford to ignore the One who is Truth (John 14:6).

Yes, I have been told that what I am teaching is dangerous and scary. Yes, I certainly hope it is dangerous and scary… to the enemy and all the dark forces! Dangerous to the kingdom of hell that surrounds us!

So yes I am in favor of doing this with and in submission to the Holy Spirit! Wouldn’t it be awesome to see an army of missionaries teleporting and spirit traveling around the planet lighting fires wherever they go ministering to the lost and hurting and broken out of their union, fellowship, and partnership with the Lord Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit?

I just want to close again with this Scripture:

“In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.” Acts 2:17 NLT

————

UPDATE!!!

The same day I posted this a friend of mine who is in active ministry called me up and told me they listened to some testimonies on this subject (you can find some on YouTube). They told me that right after they listened to it and then lost themselves in some worship songs they were “caught away by the Spirit.” I know this will be hard for some of you to believe unless you are already familiar with this sort of thing, but she found herself in a jungle in Ecuador ministering to a young girl who was alone and sobbing on a jungle trail. She was instructed by Jesus about her situation and what to do to comfort her. Right after that she was whisked away to Vietnam to comfort a young boy who was cold in a hut and very afraid.

Perhaps someday soon, you will be called upon to be someones angel as well. Even as I write that I realize how important our service to one another in the “ordinary” day-to-day world is. We DO get to be God’s angels (divine messengers) everyday to a very hurting world – most of whom won’t and can’t relate to you if you start talking about spirit travel and teleporting… so lets keep it our little secret. So let’s continue to tangibly love and serve our neighbors with God’s love!

—–

Again, If you wish to read my articles that led to the biblical framework for my thinking, don’t forget to read:

I hope this opens your eyes and heart to how big God is – “With God, nothing is impossible” and “Nothing is impossible for those who believe” ~ Jesus said. We ought to love and accept all our brothers and sisters in the faith, no matter how strange or eccentric. I want to impress upon you the need for being grounded in God’s Word. There is a great deal of deception out there and we live in perilous times!

As always, don’t hesitate to challenge me on any point! Ask me questions. Remember? I need you! You might just need me too!

“Seek the Lord while you can find him.
Call on him now while he is near.
Let the wicked change their ways
and banish the very thought of doing wrong.
Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them.
Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously.”
~ Isaiah 55:6-7

 

Teleportation and Spirit Travel – Part 2

This is Part 2 of a blog series by Daniel Lovett, a musician, writer, and follower of Christ. It was first featured on his blog, DanielLovett.com If you haven’t read it already, check out Part 1 here.

In the last blog post I explored teleportation in Scripture.

We looked at how it has happened on many occasions throughout Scripture by the Spirit of God and, if you choose to believe the reports of believers who have experienced it, teleportation continues to happen today at (I believe) an ever increasing rate!

But, teleportation can also be done by the forces of darkness as well. Consider this Scripture when Jesus was being tested in the wilderness:

“Then the devil took him to the holy city, Jerusalem, to the highest point of the Temple, 6 and said, “If you are the Son of God, jump off! For the Scriptures say,
‘He will order his angels to protect you.
And they will hold you up with their hands
so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.’”
7 Jesus responded, “The Scriptures also say, ‘You must not test the Lord your God.’”

8 Next the devil took him to the peak of a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 “I will give it all to you,” he said, “if you will kneel down and worship me.”

10 “Get out of here, Satan,” Jesus told him. “For the Scriptures say,

‘You must worship the Lord your God
and serve only him.’”
11 Then the devil went away, and angels came and took care of Jesus.” Matthew 4:6-11 NLT

So the devil teleports Jesus to the pinnacle of the temple and tempts him to test God by jumping off. Apparently this is a very real temptation for him? And then the devil teleports him to the peak of a very high mountain  and gives him supernatural vision to see all the kingdoms of the world. Worship me, he says, and it’s all yours. He was tempting Jesus to circumvent the cross. As if to say, you don’t have to suffer and die to reclaim this lost world, just worship me.

Jesus responded to the attack both times with Scripture (as the Father gave to him in that moment).

It’s SO important to know God’s Word if we are to survive the testing of the enemy (the written word of Scripture AND knowing the Living Word which is Jesus himself!) I encourage you, as I have many times before in my blog, to be a good “Berean”:

“Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.” Acts 17:11 NASB

Receive the word with great eagerness, search out the Scriptures for yourself!

Have you ever considered that when Moses was sent to rescue Israel from Egypt that for many of the miracles that Moses did, the Egyptian sorcerers could do the same? See Exodus 7!

Aaron, Moses brother, threw down his staff and it became a serpent. The sorcerers threw down their staffs and they became serpents. Somehow it wasn’t all that persuasive to them that Aaron’s snake then ate theirs? The ultimate showdown of power moves begins.

Moses and Aaron use the same staff to turn the waters of the Nile into blood. But, the Egyptian magicians then turned water into blood also. Next a plague of frogs, “But the magicians were able to do the same thing with their magic” (Exodus 8:7).

But listen to what happens next:

“When Aaron raised his hand and struck the ground with his staff, gnats infested the entire land, covering the Egyptians and their animals. All the dust in the land of Egypt turned into gnats. 18 Pharaoh’s magicians tried to do the same thing with their secret arts, but this time they failed. And the gnats covered everyone, people and animals alike.

19 “This is the finger of God!” the magicians exclaimed to Pharaoh. But Pharaoh’s heart remained hard. He wouldn’t listen to them, just as the Lord had predicted.” Exodus 8:17-19

From then on, the sorcerers could not do as Moses did and when the plague of festering boils came:

“Even the magicians were unable to stand before Moses, because the boils had broken out on them and all the Egyptians. 12 But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and just as the Lord had predicted to Moses, Pharaoh refused to listen.” Exodus 9:11-12

In the end times Jesus warns that the Antichrist and his false prophet will perform great miracles to deceive if possible even the elect.

“For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect. 25″Behold, I have told you in advance.” Matthew 24:24

So… my point in sharing this is to say that a show of power isn’t everything and to alert you to the fact that we ought not to simply be searching for power. The devil can offer you a measure of that. We ought to be searching for the person of God Himself and to be endued with his power to turn the world upside down as the apostles did in the first century for God’s kingdom of love.

The Scripture predicts that people in the last days will have a form of godliness but deny it’s power. I don’t want that to be me. I don’t want that to be you.

How do we foster and protect a childlike heart that receives the things (or power) of God? How do we continue to walk in faith and freedom and the power of God?

This is your inheritance as a child of God and his promise to you, see Joel 2 below – Which has found its ongoing fulfillment since Acts 2:

The Lord’s Promise of His Spirit
28 “Then, after doing all those things,

I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy.
Your old men will dream dreams,
and your young men will see visions.
29 In those days I will pour out my Spirit
even on servants—men and women alike.
30 And I will cause wonders in the heavens and on the earth—
blood and fire and columns of smoke.
31 The sun will become dark,
and the moon will turn blood red ( of course we don’t see this kind of thing happening do we?)
before that great and terrible day of the Lord arrives.
32 But everyone who calls on the name of the Lord
will be saved,
for some on Mount Zion in Jerusalem will escape,
just as the Lord has said.
These will be among the survivors
whom the Lord has called. Joel 2:28-29 NASB

I urge you, as the apostle Paul does, to earnestly desire the spiritual gifts (but most of all Love – PLEASE read 1 Corinthians 13!) in your walk with God just as Paul says in 1 Corinthians 14:

“Let love be your highest goal! But you should also desire the special abilities the Spirit gives—especially the ability to prophesy. 2 For if you have the ability to speak in tongues, you will be talking only to God, since people won’t be able to understand you. You will be speaking by the power of the Spirit, but it will all be mysterious. 3 But one who prophesies strengthens others, encourages them, and comforts them. 4 A person who speaks in tongues is strengthened personally, but one who speaks a word of prophecy strengthens the entire church. 5 I wish you could all speak in tongues, but even more I wish you could all prophesy…”

I was blessed years ago to read these angel’s words in regard to prophecy:

“For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” Revelation 19:10 NASB

Or, “For the essence of prophecy is to give a clear witness for Jesus.” NLT

It’s all about Jesus! HE is everything!

“God is love… in whom we live and move and have our being.” (from 1 Jn 4 & Acts 17)

My position is this:

“For the believer, there is not more than Jesus to discover and experience, BUT, there is more OF Jesus to discover and experience!”

Now, I must admit, I got just the tiniest bit of flak for my post on teleportation and spirit travel. I can understand why this would freak people out.

When I was exploring visions in Scripture I was seeing that sometimes their spirits were leaving their body! Many would call this “astral projection” (I have no history, as some of my readers might, that would cause that word to be a negative trigger – I mentioned it once which I will refrain from using from now on. I realize now that it is needlessly provocative. I am SO sorry for my carelessness and recklessness of some of my wording.)

So when I was teaching people to prepare their hearts and minds for a vision from the Lord Jesus, I was strongly suggesting – and kind of geeking out over the fact – that this just might mean you have an out-of-body experience! And to realize that as you seek the Lord it’s ok and not automatically “from the devil” if that were to happen!

“Oh no! Daniel is teaching people how to astral project!”

That’s what some likely heard. But, that was not my intent at all. This is what the Bible actually says happened to so many saints and prophets and apostles! (Ezekiel, Paul, and John)

What a sad state the church would be in if it were to reject and judge people for believing the Bible! Thank God that isn’t the case! Have you ever read something in the Bible and thought that most people (even other believers) will find what you had just read as simply unacceptable? Sometimes we can’t wrap our minds around the reality what the Bible is actually saying. This has been true about me for most of my Christian life until the Lord started to open my eyes.

The day I started this blog five years ago was because the Lord started opening my eyes in fresh ways to how “real” he is! (Read my first blog for yourself if you want.)

God has made me to be an writer. I know that. He has gifted me in this and in my desires and interests in the supernatural as well. I am glad for who he made me! I am happy to be who I am! I feel his smile and favor upon me. He has made me confident in my relationship – my friendship – with him. If you want to know how to arrive at that place of confidence I would be delighted to share my journey with you! Much of that journey is captured right here in this seven-year long blog.

I didn’t give myself my first life altering vision. I wasn’t seeking a vision. I was just seeking and loving Jesus, fresh back from a life of backsliding and going the devils way. The visions (and mostly dreams – night visions) have helped me immensely along the way however and so I don’t belittle them as some do and I don’t believe it’s wrong to seek them. I think we need to. I often ask for dreams from God and that I would remember them.

It is hard being here on this planet. The Lord is the master at striking a balance between keeping you grounded and present for your mission here AND giving you just enough of heaven along the way to keep the smile always on your face. I was beaming yesterday as this thought crossed my mind.

At the age of eighteen I came back to Jesus because he gave me a dream and showed me my life in five or so years time. The corruption and pain from remaining on the devils path that I saw was too great to bear and so I called up my mom who had been praying for me and asked to go to church with her!

God used a dream/vision of my future to bring me back to himself! Six months later I had an extraordinary supernatural experience with the Lord. It seemed to me that he took my spirit on a time travel. At least that’s my geeky way of interpreting what I experienced. The experiences of and with the Lord continue and I’m SO thankful for each and every one!

Stay tuned. Keep seeking Jesus with all your heart! Stay immersed in His Word and in fellowship and in prayer! And be free!

Florida Man Raised from the Dead by Praying Cardiologist

On October 20, 2006 Jeff Markin collapsed from a massive heart attack after driving himself to the Palm Beach Gardens Hospital emergency room.

The emergency medical workers and supervising cardiologist Dr. Chauncey Crandall followed standard procedure using defibrillator pads more than a dozen times trying to shock Jeff’s heart back to working order. With each passing minute their chances of successfully resuscitating the heart attack victim plummeted dramatically. After they had worked feverishly for 40 minutes trying to bring Jeff’s heart out of a flatline they had to finally call the time of death and walk away from the corpse.

That would have been the end of a disappointing but not terribly unusual heart attack case. But as Dr. Chauncey Crandall was walking away after filling out some paperwork he sensed the Holy Spirit’s voice saying that he should pray for the now officially dead heart attack victim.

By this time Jeff Markin’s body was being prepared for the morgue. Dr. Crandall walked in there and began praying for Jeff Markin. Another doctor walked in and Dr. Crandall persuaded him to once again apply the defibrillators and see if the body could be shocked back to life. Despite the utter hopelessness of the situation the protesting doctor did as he was asked out of respect to his colleague. Miraculously, Jeff’s heart responded beautifully with a perfect heartbeat and Jeff began breathing again.

He was brought back to life by faith, prayer, and one more try using conventional medicine. Thus he would live to tell about his experience while physically dead. Miraculously Jeff not only came back to life but also did not sustain any brain damage.

In his book, Raising the Dead, Dr. Crandall tells all about this and other cases of raising the dead and healings and what brought him to the place where he has joined his medical expertise with prayer for each of his patients.

I have also found a number of reports and interviews that will fill in more details about this case. I hope you find all these resources and this amazing story to be a great inspiration as you remember the declaration of Jesus Christ: I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades. ~ Revelation 1:18

Greatest Healing Miracle of the 20th Century – The Delores Winder Story

Sid Roth, host of the TV show It’s Supernatural, calls Delores Winder’s healing one of the greatest healing miracles of the Twentieth Century.

Delores Winder’s website briefly describes her medical history as follows:

Delores Winder was plagued with pseudo arthritis for nineteen and a half years. She was in a full body cast and neck brace during that time. At the age of 31, her bones were aged and deteriorating she had the bones of someone in their mid 70s. Delores’s bones continued to deteriorate rapidly, and as a result, her spine, hips, wrists, shoulders, and fingers were so fragile that she couldn’t be touched. Her lungs, heart, stomach, and kidneys were all failing too.

In order to kill the pain, Delores had four spinal fusions and two percutaneous cordotomies (burning out of the nerve centers at the base of the brain), which caused no feeling on the whole right side of her body and on the left side up to her waist.

Delores was making her funeral arrangements and was looking forward to death since it would be a wonderful relief from the agonizing pain she had endured much of her life. Her one concern though was her 14-year-old son. She needed assurance that he would be taken care of in her absence.

Interestingly, God instructed her to go to a conference by Kathryn Kuhlman to find out how he would take care of her 14-year-old son. I say “interestingly” because Delores couldn’t tolerate Kathryn Kuhlman. Delores was very skeptical of Kathryn’s ministry since Kathryn was known to miraculously heal people by God’s power. Delores didn’t believe that miraculous healings could still take place in post-Biblical times so she did not trust Kathryn’s ministry. But since Delores was concerned about her son and had a promise from God that he would reveal his plan for her son if she went to the Kathryn Kuhlman conference, she chose to attend that meeting. It also helped that the particular meeting she was supposed to attend was being hosted by a Christian denomination Delores trusted and the meeting’s focus was not on healing but on the Holy Spirit.

That meeting would change her life. Not only did God reveal his plan for her son; but also, he totally healed her and restored sensation to her entire body — something that was medically impossible since the nerve centers at the base of her brain stem had been severed in order to reduce her pain.

This complete healing took place in Dallas, TX on August 30, 1975 after there was no medical hope for her and her only concern was making sure that her son would be taken care of after she died.

Since this healing took place nearly 35 years ago, Delores Winder has had many opportunities to tell her story. The brief summary I have given above does not paint the whole picture and leaves out many details including how she was actually healed. That is because I could never do her story justice. I want you to take the time to watch at least one of the video clips posted below so that you can hear from her own mouth exactly what she experienced and what happened to her.

You Can Hear God – Using a Prayer Journal to Hear God’s Voice

There are many ways to hear God’s voice. One of my favorites is by journaling because it makes it so easy to hear what God is saying and at the end of your time journaling you will have a record of what God said to you.

I learned this technique for hearing what God is saying from Mark Virkler’s article: You Can Hear God’s Voice!

Mark Virkler was praying to learn how he could hear God’s voice. In fact, he even took a year off from his pastoral duties to focus on learning how to hear from God. During that year, Jesus finally came to him one night and woke him up with an audible voice and gave him four keys to effectively hearing God’s voice. You can learn more about Mark’s testimony by listening to him sharing his testimony and an introduction to hearing God’s voice or listen to radio and television interviews.

A brief summary of what Mark Virkler shares in his article is that hearing God’s voice can be easy if you follow four keys:

  1. Know what God’s voice sounds like
  2. Become still with a worshipful attitude
  3. Fix the eyes of your heart on Jesus
  4. Journal in faith

I would like to offer a few thoughts on the above points to help you get started. These thoughts are not meant to replace Mark Virkler’s article that got me started in hearing God’s voice through journaling. Instead, the following thoughts are meant to provide supplemental guidance. So you might want to read Mark’s article first and then read what I have to add.

Know what God’s voice sounds like

God can speak in different ways at different times to different people. A lot of people assume God would speak in an audible voice. He certainly can and does do that. But don’t assume that He will always speak that way to you.

In fact, if you consider that the eardrum receives vibration waves carried by the air and delivers a message to the mind, you have to wonder why almighty God would go to the trouble of sending his message through the air and then through the ear and finally into the mind when he can simply speak directly to your mind.

In my case, he normally takes the shortcut straight to my mind. My ear does not hear God’s voice. But my mind does receive God’s message. So, God’s words appear inside my mind like thoughts. These are the thoughts of God. In fact, the way I receive God’s thoughts can be compared to the concept of telepathy, which is the transfer of thoughts between individuals by means other than the five senses

So, when I receive a message from God, it comes as a thought quietly placed into my mind. Why do I say “quietly”? Because there isn’t the energy of my mind’s wheels behind that thought since my mind did not generate that thought. That is why people talk about the “still, small voice of God.” God’s thought quietly appears in my mind and I write it down and a new thought from God takes its place.

Become still with a worshipful attitude

To hear God, you will need to cut out the noise and activity. Don’t expect to hear from God while the TV is blaring and you are rushing to get dinner on the table. God is best heard when you find a quiet, restful place and focus your heart on the adoration of God.

I always start my journaling time with praise and worship because this helps me tune into God’s voice. If God’s voice stops flowing into my mind, then I return to worship and then I begin hearing him again.

One time while I was journaling, I wrote to God this prayer: “I desire to know you more and hear your voice better. Please guide me and show me the path step by step.”

In response, God spoke to me about the importance of being still to know him. Here is what God said to me:

You are my beloved son. I guide you and make you whole. Pursue me and know me. I am like the wind. I am always with you, always moving, always surrounding you. To know the wind you don’t chase it, do you? Don’t you open your arms and let the moving wind flow through you? You are still and let your senses be sensitive and experience the movement, force, and sound of the wind. So to know me, open your heart, be still, be attentive and become familiar with my movement, my energy, and my sound. I am your God. Always moving. Always coming. Always going. Always with you. You have seen me moving just as you have seen the leaves moved by the wind. But take your attention from the trees to feel me moving through and around you. Be the tree and know me.

Fix the eyes of your heart on Jesus

To truly hear God, you should focus on Jesus. Jesus is our open door to heaven. Through him we have unlimited access to God — including direct communication with God.

You will hear what you focus on. If you focus on your mind, you will hear your thoughts. If you focus on your problems, you will hear your worries. If you focus on your desires, you will hear your wishes. If you focus on Jesus, you will hear God.

One great way to focus on Jesus is to use your imagination to picture him and you in a scene you are comfortable with. For instance, you might imagine yourself sitting in a garden with Jesus sitting on a rock by you having a chat with you.

Journal in faith

What makes journaling such an effective way of hearing God is that it allows you to put aside your analytical thinking for awhile and just have an attitude of faith while whole-heartedly listening to God.

We hear God by faith. As Mark Virkler points out in his article, it is very important to put aside any doubts while you are in the process of listening to God’s voice. Just write. Don’t think. journalingWhen you are finished writing down your conversation with God, then you can go back and examine what you heard and see if it is from God — but try not to enter this analytical process of judgment until you are finished hearing from God.

When you put these four keys to hearing God’s voice together, you will find that hearing from God comes easily to you. It is recommended that you share what God tells you with a couple of your spiritual mentors who can help you confirm whether what you heard is really from God or not.

The first time I tried journaling as a way to hear God’s voice, I wasn’t sure if it would work. But I put all my doubts and questions aside and just tried it and the results were amazing.

Here is an excerpt from my very first conversation with God through a prayer journal (“T” is me and “G” is God):

T- Good morning God

G- Good morning my son. How are you today?

T- I’m fine. I’m happy to hear you!

G- I am always with you – to the end of the age and in the age to come.

T- Thank you for being with me. Are you happy with me?

G- You are my pride and joy. I am your Father and treasure all of my children.

T- How can I be a better son?

G- You must seek my face. Your heart is mine. I want to know you.

T- I want to know you too! Will you reveal yourself to me?

G- It is my pleasure to reveal myself to you. You are my son. I desire to show myself to my children.

T- Thank you God. I want to know you. Thank you for speaking with me. What would you like to say to me now?

G- My son, I want to tell you many things. Come to me and I will always be happy to talk with you. You are my treasure.

Since that first journaled conversation, I have had many amazing conversations with God. He has revealed my destiny. He has provided guidance for my future. He has taught me spiritual truths. He has shared his heart with me. It is always a very fulfilling way to spend my devotional time.

Give it a try and let me know how it goes.

Sid Roth – It’s Supernatural!

I love Sid Roth. He is a beautiful Jewish man who hosts a TV show and a radio show that features supernatural stories from people moving in spiritual power.

Nearly every weekend, you can find me watching his show having my faith being built up.

Today, I am just going to share a couple TV episodes with you as well as a set of radio broadcasts. My hope is that this taste of his programs will get you excited about what is possible when our spirits connect with God and that you will become aware of Sid Roth’s work.

First, I want to share a TV episode (about 20-30 minutes long I think) featuring a young woman named Jennifer Toledo who was called by God to go on an adventure that would be utterly life changing.

Jennifer Toledo’s interview with Sid Roth

Another amazing young woman who visits with Sid Roth is Evangeline Weiner. She grew up with a family of supernatural healers and has many amazing stories of God’s power to heal.

Experiencing the Power of Jesus’ Love – Miracle Healings and More Out on the Streets

Todd White’s life has been transformed by the love and power of Jesus Christ. The love of God overflows the heart of Todd and people who are around him are transformed by the miraculous love of Jesus.

Todd doesn’t think that God is just for the church-goers. He remembers that Jesus taught that the good shepherd will leave the 99 sheep in the pen (the church) to go out and find that one lost sheep wandering in the wilderness.

So, Todd walks the streets of urban centers and as he walks he watches and listens. He watches for anyone who needs healing – whether physical or spiritual. He also listens to the Spirit of God who tells him the needs of the people around him. Each of these people come into an amazing encounter with the powerful love of God.

I have already posted some videos of Todd out on the streets listening to people’s hurts and sharing the healing power of God’s love with them and the videos show people being miraculously healed by God’s power.

Today I am posting some new videos that I have uncovered of God’s love and power overflowing from Todd’s life.

I hope you are as blessed as I was when I watched these videos documenting the miraculous power of God’s love touching people.

Holy Spirit Hot Spot – What Happens When God’s Power Lands on Earth!

What would a Holy Spirit Hot Spot look like? I mean what would it look like if there were a place on earth where people could go and experience the supernatural healing power of God?

This time last year, a church in Lakeland, Florida was in the middle of a 6 month encounter with the healing power of God.

It is estimated that over 140,000 people from over 40 nations visited and 1.2 million people watched via the Internet – www.god.tv canceled its scheduled programing and covered the event live.

Countless healing miracles and over a dozen resurrections from the dead took place during these meetings. People attending or watching these revival meetings became inspired to pray for the recovery of sick or dead people and also saw results all around the world.

Let’s take a closer look at the Lakeland Revival through video coverage.

Lakeland: The Movie –catch the first 30 days of the event

Testimony of a Resurrection

Miracle Healings Hit the Streets of Las Vegas

Christians are often called ‘believers’ but some believe more than others.

For instance, how seriously do Christians take Jesus when he says, ‘they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well’ and ‘You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it’?

Today, I want you to meet a guy who took Jesus at his word. He started praying for anyone he could find having faith that God would heal them.

A month went by of praying for half a dozen people everyday and… nothing. Another month went by of praying for people in parking lots, downtown, and wherever he could find people… still nothing seemed to be happening. Yet another month of faithfully believing Jesus’ promises came and went with no tangible results.

Most of us would have given up long before this. That is probably why most of us don’t live supernatural lifestyles.

It was in his fourth month of going out and praying everyday that breakthrough happened. For the first time, Todd received a word of knowledge about a man, prayed, and the man was instantly healed.

From that time on, Todd began seeing the flow of healing miracles become stronger and stronger so that now he almost always sees immediate results.
