I feel like sharing with you my experiences from the health expo in Odense today.
First a very powerful experience…. At the stand, we talked to a girl who was fairly negative, and who really didn’t want to receive prayer, because she had experienced in the past how “Christians” had let her down…. But she still agreed to have God’s blessing prayed in over her, while her friend stood around waiting with a very ‘cold’ and ‘dismissive’ attitude.
While this was going on, I was talking to someone from “Martinus” about God’s freedom and about the reality of demons. While we were talking, the girl who had just been blessed with the power of God went over to her very dismissive friend. They only take very few steps… Then the dismissed friend suddenly collapses to the floor…. Lifeless and ghostly pale… She is completely out, and her friend is trying to take her pulse.
Birte and I rush over there, and I place a hand on her head and say “In the name of Jesus, get up!“…and at that very moment, she sits up. We keep praying for her, while a crowd of spectators are gathering around her… Then she starts to shake. She is cramping up and pulling away from me, while she says, “Don’t. Stop that”. We keep praying, and it is very obvious that she is trying to get away, and that a demon inside her is manifesting. She asks me to stop again, while she pulls even further away from me – the power of God was too much for the demon.
Unfortunately, she was brought into a different room by her friend and another person. So we weren’t able to see it to the end and deliver her…. But you’d better believe that the power of God was a strong presence…. Wow (an aside added later on: Sara, who met God on this occasion, actually returned the next day – and was later healed for failing kidneys. She gave her life to Jesus!)
Afterwards, I could go back to the lady from “Martinus”, who had seen it all and truly witnessed the power of God up close… Her comment was: “That stuff sure is powerful”… God emphasized precisely all the things we had been talking about. She sure got some things to think about. I think it’s what they call ‘a supporting talk’. Wow….
