Healing and Salvation - In Jesus - 09-25-2014

Today, Jimmy, a North American Indian man, who smelled of alcohol, received healing for pain in his chest after 4 times of laying hands on him and commanding the pain to go and healing to come in the name of Jesus.

I shared the gospel with him; the gospel about how Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who is One with the Father and One with the Holy Spirit, how He came in the flesh of man, lived a perfect sinless life, then died a death on the cross and rose from the grave 3 days later, all to save us from our sins, to save us from death, and to save us from judgment for our sins and an eternity in hell. The gospel that says that if we would believe in Him and follow Him, our sin would be paid for by Himself, He could then forgive us, and then give us His righteousness as a gift, and restore us to God. We can then have a relationship with Him, and He can lead us in the way to walk and live by His Spirit. After hearing all that, he wanted to, and asked the Lord Jesus to be his Savior and Lord. He had a tear in his eye while I was praying for him. He seemed really impacted. After that I also prayed over him that he would receive the Holy Spirit. There was no manifestation of speaking in tongues though.

All this during a small walk on one of my afternoon breaks from work.

Jesus is LORD in Winnipeg!

I later ran into him again at the end of my shift on my way home and invited him to church. I also encouraged him to read his bible. He said he had 4 of them. I suggested to start in James, a book after his own name, explaining it was a small, good and easy to read book, with direction on how to live a godly life in Christ.

He said his pain was still gone and that he felt good. He thanked me and said a few times "My heart goes out to you." Hehe! Praise the Lord!

Grace, peace and love in Jesus Christ!
