Jewish Synagogue in Budapest
While we were missionaries in Eastern Europe for four and a half years, based in Budapest, Hungary, I had the opportunity to post a number of testimonies of the great things the Lord did in people's lives.  Some of them were the testimonies of people I met, which I wanted to publish for the glory of God.  Others were testimonies of what the Lord did in my own life while we were there.  And now that we are in the States again, I continue to post testimonies of what God is doing, so that He can receive the praise.

I've tried to organize them in some sort of order, beginning with my own testimony of salvation and the salvation of others I know in the left column.  In the middle column you will find testimonies of healing, deliverance and protection.  In the right hand column, I have posted testimonies of miracles, signs, and wonders, as well as other subjects that did not fit elsewhere.

"Not to us, O LORD, not to us, But to Your name give glory Because of Your lovingkindness, because of Your truth." (Ps 115:1)

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Amazing Healing and Deliverance in Uganda

One of our graduates from our Doulos Training School (DTS), who is now on staff with our ministry in Uganda shared the following testimony of several healing and deliverance miracles. Brother Grace wrote on February 14th:

Dear brother Len, glad to hear from you! 

Amazing testimonies; just to single out a few among many: 

1. A lady came to the house of prayer requesting us to pray for her daughter who couldn't make it to the place of prayer; the severe pain in the legs of Joyce left instantly the same time we were praying (John 4:50-53). 

2. Richard from Kalaki district had a problem of witchcraft, where demons used to stone his house tops and several times attempting to target family members especially at night. When he called for prayer on phone, the Lord showed me two birds leave and fly away from his compound. No more sign of witchcraft in his home. 

3. Margaret in Ngora district last Friday was in a dying point, suffering from serious headache, fever, cough and general body pain; she couldn't talk, stand, eat etc. Her daughter called, and after a short prayer on phone, she was completely healed. 

4. Florence had marriage issues with her husband for long. Some months ago she came to our house for prayer help. Florence yesterday confessed that she despised our prayer, saying in her heart "this place is not a Church building, I am not convinced their prayer can avail anything." Just yesterday in our Sunday service she came with another lady who also wanted prayer for her marriage. Florence testifies that her [own] husband came back immediately after the prayer made; they have total peace now. 

5. Sister Angela had been chased away by her husband and was living with her 4 children in her sister's home for 6 years. After prayer, the same week her husband came back apologizing; their marriage now is very stable. These are just a few among many cases of marriage restoration testimonies that the Lord has handled. 

6. I have a neighbor here, Sam. His wife asked us to go and share prayer with him; I hesitated, but later that evening went with one sister. Sam was bedridden and was helped to the sitting room by three people. He couldn't talk, sit, eat or drink. Sam was crying with severe cough, headache, high temperature etc (all covid 19 symptoms). After that prayer he smiled, walked out, and took tea. 

When I went back home I fell very sick with my wife, with signs of the illness. I remember sharing this with brother Len. At that time of prayer with brother Len, the Lord healed us! 

A few days later, when I went to check on Sam, he testified that he had covid 19, and is now very fine. 

Brother Len, there are many more healings and deliverances the Lord has done and will keep on sending their testimonies to you. All the glory and honor belong to Him! 

Blessings in Jesus' Name. 

Your brother, Grace.

END OF TESTIMONY FROM GRACE

Closing Words

Are you in need of healing in your body? Do you need deliverance? Is your marriage in trouble? There is hope for you today through the power of Jesus Christ. He is the answer.

"With God all things are possible." (Mat 19:26b). All you need to do is ask Him for it by faith, and be sure you have forgiven anyone whom you are holding anything against. And ask the Lord to forgive all your sins for Christ's sake, because He paid the penalty for you already on the cross, where He died for you, and then rose again three days later. Jesus said, "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins." (Mar 11:24-25)

A Message from our Lord by Sister Catherine

On Sunday, 9th January 2022, I received the following email from one of the students in our Doulos Training School (DTS), sister Catherine, who is in the United Kingdom. 

Testimony of Sister Catherine

"Dear brother Len and sister Jennifer.

This morning at around 6:00 AM, I had a vision of being in heaven, and our Lord showed me the setting sun. 

I met Jesus face-to-face and He said, 'As much as I would love to give more time to save souls, I cannot, because our Father the Almighty has set the sun in place and His plans in place, and they cannot be changed. Time is running out for saving souls, please tell our Church. I am always with you'

It was crystal clear, and a very vivid message and very powerful.

This message  has really got me thinking of the urgency of witnessing praying more.

I felt it is very urgent to share this message with you.

I feel such a stronger urgency to witness more and pray more for salvation of lost souls and pray for more people to join the Doulos studies and for some churches to wake up before it's too late.

Praying for you all. 

Bless you all. 

With love in Jesus our Lord. 

Sister Catherine."

[END OF TESTIMONY FROM SISTER CATHERINE].

---------------------------------------------

Closing Words

Dear friends, I have no doubt that what sister Catherine has shared actually happened to her, and that the Lord did speak to her in heaven. I know her and she would not make anything like this up. 

This message from our Lord agrees with what we have been hearing from Him through many other servants of His. Time is up. The end has come. He is coming back very very soon (Rev 22:7). There is no time to waste. The Father has determined it. As the Lord said at the end of the Revelation given to John the apostle:

"Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. "Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star." (Rev 22:12-16)

Even so, come, Lord Jesus! Come! 

May the Lord help us all to be found ready when He comes. May He help us to be found faithful and obedient to all that He has commanded us to do, including the Great Commission to go and make disciples. May He help us to be faithful in prayer, especially for souls.

The Body Parts Storehouse in Heaven

One of our graduates from our three-year Doulos Training School, Grace, who is a pastor in Uganda and staff member with our school, shared the following testimony with me. In it he gives God all the praise for what He is doing in his healing and deliverance ministry there in his country. He writes:

Testimony of Brother Grace

Hi dear brother Len,

Once again, reading the testimony of Sister Elisabeth from Indonesia is so inspiring; it reminds me of what God showed me years ago in a dream, which I am moved to share with you. I saw a store in Heaven of all body spare parts. If any part of the body of a human being got any problems, the Lord told me we can ask in prayer for a replacement and it will be so. I thank God! 

Brother Len, this short time, during which I have been involved in the ministry of healing and deliverance, I have witnessed the Lord do amazing things. Here are some examples:

1. A lady called Ketty had suffered for more than ten years, and was supposed to go for an operation to remove her uterus. But upon receiving prayer, the Lord instantly healed her!

2. Florence A. had an issue of blood flow (filling buckets) since her adolescence. She was also unable to become pregnant. The gynecologist doctors recommended an operation. After prayer she went to bathe, and something came out of her private part, which is the size of a human finger. Since then she has been well, and is now 3 months pregnant. She is grateful to the Lord!

3. A man called Enoch made a phone call to me at 3:00 AM; his child had been in the hospital for one month with a severe blood deficiency (anemia). The child couldn't eat, drink, sit, or talk. After prayer, the doctors and the father were puzzled, because the child recovered immediately with proper blood (hemoglobin) levels, Glory to Him!

4. A woman named Norah had ulcers for over ten years until the Lord instantly healed her when she received prayer!

5. A man named Stephen was astonished when the Lord delivered and healed his wife Betty through a night phone call. She had fallen too sick and fainted. [In addition to that], three days ago the same lady was involved in  motor accident. While she was in a state of unconsciousness in the hospital, Stephen called. When I was praying for her, there were spirits of death manifesting. The Lord led me to rebuke the spirit of death and claim her life back. After one to two days, the husband called, and I was able to talk to Betty herself. This man Stephen works with radio Uganda and is inviting me to be ministering on radio; the Lord is great!

6. Sister Angela's daughter, Belinda was healed from short sightedness, because of which she had hard time to see and read for a long time. Praise the Lord!

7.Personally years ago, I used to experience kidney pain for [a long time]. In a dream, a doctor appeared and [drew] fluid from my kidney using a syringe. From then my kidneys are perfect. No more pain. Glory to Him!

Brother Len, there are many more amazing testimonies; these few are given for the confirmation of sister Elisabeth's testimony of the "spare body parts in heaven's storehouse," and also to encourage ourselves to claim our [own] healing. But also I have learnt that sometimes there are healings that take [a long time] for reasons known to God. We give God all the glory for His works!! To Him alone belongs the glory and the honour.

I read and have experienced God doing much more through many other servants of the Lord and He wants His vessels to surrender to Him for use.

Your humble brother, 

Grace.

Closing Words

Are you in need of healing in your body? If there is some part of your body or some organ that has become damaged or diseased, God has spare parts ready for you in His heavenly storehouse. "With God all things are possible." (Mat 19:26b). All you need to do is ask Him for it by faith, and be sure you have forgiven anyone whom you are holding anything against. And ask the Lord to forgive all your sins for Christ's sake, because He paid the penalty for you already on the cross, where He died for you, and then rose again three days later. Jesus said, "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins." (Mar 11:24-25)

Supernatural Encounter While Striving to Draw Closer to God

This past weekend I was exchanging emails with Catherine, one of the first-year students in our Doulos Training School (DTS), regarding my article called Striving to Enter the Kingdom of God, which I wrote several years ago. She was expressing her appreciation for the article, which was a new teaching for her, since she had never heard it taught in any of the churches in the UK where she lives. She initially said, "I have always believed and lived a relationship with our Lord, but not by striving before."

However, a couple days later, she remembered a supernatural experience she once had while striving to be closer to the Lord, when she was just a teen. It's such a remarkable experience, and such a great example of biblical striving, that I felt I should post it here, so that everyone could benefit from it. Here is the testimony in her words:

Catherine's Testimony

The Lord brought back to remembrance, the true short story of what happened when I was fourteen, I hope you don't mind me sharing this with you.

I was at a Butlins holiday camp in Minehead, UK, with my foster parents and they went to their son's wedding, they didn't want me with them so after breakfast she gave me a green, 1-pound (£1) British banknote for lunch, I felt more rejection.

There is a big hill nearby so I made my way to this hill and walked up to the top, determined to strive and seek and find God. I had nothing to eat or drink all day (after only a light breakfast), as I was determined to meet with God. I spent all day at the top of this hill and found God and His love and peace. I felt so loved and happy, and no more pain of rejection. But as I came down to the bottom of the hill, I realised that I was lost, and I couldn't remember the Chalet number at the holiday camp either.

I asked Jesus for His help, then I met a man called Paul (he had a beard, and he looked Jewish, like I had seen in books at school). He Said, "You are lost aren't you?" 

I said, "Yes," 

He had a green jeep, so I accepted a lift from him. He told me about my foster parents and about my vision that I had received from the Lord a month earlier, which I thought I had only told my school friend Sandra about. I wondered, "How does Paul know so much about me?" He took me to the right chalet, and I turned to say thank you and wave goodbye, but Paul and his jeep had just disappeared.

My foster mother said, "Where have you been, it's 7:00 pm?" 

I said, "I got lost, and your friend Paul found me and brought me home." 

She said, "We don't have a friend called Paul, You must have been with a stranger, and what have  I told you about not talking with strangers."

I went to bed and read in the Bible, the Scripture that says, "You will entertain angels and not know it." (paraphrase from Hebrews 13:2). So I knew God had sent His angel to save me.

So our Lord told me, "This is what I am teaching you to do every day to diligently seek Me and strive to come closer all the time and I will bless you."

So thank you so much for your amazing article, it has been such a revelation and a blessing to me, and I feel closer to the Lord already.

I only wish I could teach others, I will pray about other people joining the (DTS) studies as it is so important for the church.

Praying for you all.

Bless you all.

Sister Catherine

[END OF TESTIMONY]

Closing Words

What an amazing testimony! Let me just comment regarding the Jewish man named Paul, who met Catherine at the bottom of the hill, told her all about her life, and then disappeared after he dropped her off at the chalet where her parents were staying--even though she didn't know which chalet it was. She told me that the picture to the left most closely resembles him. While it could have been an angel, since the Bible clearly tells us we may encounter angels without being aware of it, it is my belief that this was the apostle Paul. It is just as easy for God to have one of the living saints in glory appear and help us in some way, as it is for Him to send an angel or another earth-dwelling human being. 

When I told Catherine that I and my family all believe it was the apostle Paul, she replied, "Yes I agree with you, I do believe it was St Paul that was sent to me. He had so much love and compassion just as he does in his letters to the churches in the New Testament, and his love and passion for Jesus our Lord is awesome. When I read his letters in the New Testament, it's like I know him in Spirit and I remember my encounter with him."

She continued, "As our Lord has shown me, this is such an important teaching. I have had so much joy being closer to our Lord since I learned this teaching and remembering my encounter with St Paul. Striving to be closer to our Lord brings a stronger faith and blessings."

Why should any of you consider it incredible that God could do this? He is the Sovereign Lord and nothing is too difficult for Him. Just as Moses and Elijah appeared talking with Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration (Matthew 17:1–8, Mark 9:2–8, Luke 9:28–36), so the Lord can permit anyone He so wishes to have this sort of experience. 

This is all part of the communion of the saints that is spoken of in Scripture and in the Apostles' Creed. We believe in the communion of the saints. According to the apostle John, "...if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin." (1Jn 1:7). Those who walk in the light in this way not only have fellowship with the Lord, but with the saints here on earth. And if God chooses to allow it, they also have fellowship with the saints in glory. 

However, we are not to seek to initiate direct contact with them. Such encounters come to those who diligently seek the Lord Himself, like John did on the Isle of Patmos. While he was in the Spirit on the Lord's Day, he had an amazing revelation from God that he wrote down in the book of Revelation. Not only did he see the Lord Jesus Christ and the heavenly Father, he also saw angels and saints in glory, including the twenty-four elders. In fact, he spoke with one of the twenty-four elders (Rev 7:13). And many believe that the particular angel who spoke with him and showed him things in heaven was actually the prophet Daniel. John wrote:

"At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, 'Don't do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For it is the Spirit of prophecy who bears testimony to Jesus.'" (Rev 19:10)

The reason many believe this was the prophet Daniel is that he told John that he is a fellow servant with him and his brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. A fellow servant (Gr. sumdoulos) of John and other disciples of Christ signifies being one of them and coequal with them. And the reason he is believed to be the prophet Daniel is that God gave Daniel an apocalyptic revelation of the end times, too, as written in the book of the Bible that bears his name. The books of Daniel and Revelation fit together like a lock and a key. How fitting it would be for Daniel to speak with John during his heavenly encounter and show him the things he showed him.

Dear friend, I hope this brief testimony from Catherine has encouraged you to diligently seek the Lord and strive to draw closer to Him all the time. Press in to know Him more. Ask Him to draw you close to Himself. And may the Lord give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him more.

Epilogue
After I posted this article with Catherine's testimony, we exchanged more emails about it, and she explained that a month before this trip to the holiday camp with her foster parents, she had received a vision from the Lord, in which he sent Mary to her. She wrote:

Jesus gave me vision, in which He sent His mother, to say to me, "You are a child of God, " Then I heard Jesus' voice saying, "Do not fear for I am always with you." 

Mary had dark hair and brown eyes, and looked like a young Jewish girl (closely resembling woman in photo to left). The Catholic Church portrays her as English with fair hair and blue eyes. She doesn't look like they portray; they have her wrong. She spoke with great authority, and a strong voice. She spoke the same English as I do, with the South London accent, as I was brought up in South London. 

Then a month later, when I sat in Paul's Jeep with him, he said, "Jesus sent you a vision of his mother to tell you that you are a child of God and Jesus told you not to be afraid, as He is with you always." 

And I said, "Yes, you are right." It was then I thought he must be an angel, as he knew everything about me and I had only told my school friend Sandra about the vision, no one else knew about it. 

The Holy Spirit later told me that Jesus sent his mother to me, to help heal the trauma of having an abusive foster mother, and never having a loving mother. 

When I tell people about this vision, I always point out that Jesus sent his mother to me so that I would know who I belong to -- 'Jesus' -- and not to become a Catholic as some people have said. For although I didn't see Jesus that night, He was still there, because I heard his voice loud and clear, which is a witness to Catholics that Jesus is our Saviour, and they must not pray to or worship Mary.

If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus. Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?
