Casting Out Demons on Christmas Eve

Happy New Year! May this be the year that God blesses you abundantly in every area of your life, as we consecrate ourselves completely to Him. I have some amazing events and miracles to share! I had the privilege of being a groomsmen in a wedding with the church I helped to plant. It was a wonderful wedding in Iloilo Island and expecting great things from that couple! Then a few days after I traveled to Cebu Island to have Christmas with my old friends. I miss my family and friends in America very much. But it made this lonely missionary happy to be with old friends from my first missionary term.
Christmas eve seemed pretty normal hanging out with some old friends at YWAM. Then it all changed as I went to pray for somebody with back and knee pain. He begins to manifest signs of a spiritual attack. Pain would completely leave then come right back a few minutes later.  This isn’t the first time I’ve seen pain come and go, or even move from the knee to the stomach. I used to not understand this even after seeing thousands healed. God revealed to me in Scriptures, as did those great ministers who operated in many miracles before my time.  The understanding given to me a couple years ago was that they haven’t consecrated themselves wholly to God. To be consecrated is to be set apart for God.
This gentleman did get delivered from this as far as I know. He was vomiting only while we were praying for him. God does not leave us as orphans, but has given us His Holy Spirit! “Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.” John 5:14 Attacks from the demons will not prevail if we trust and believe God. This isn’t something that we should fear, or even ignore like it doesn’t exist. It is real and we are on the winning side! God is stronger and our part is easy. Trust Him with your body, family, thoughts, future and finances just as you do with your soul! It’s easy to trust God with our soul as we can’t see or touch it. But what about those other things that we spend so much time making plans for?
I preached two services Christmas morning in Cebu. All glory belongs to God as I witnessed Him heal about 30 people! Not one person walked away without being touched and healed by God! While I was at that big church, I met an old friend who I prayed for. This woman had colon cancer and wasn’t given much hope. But God healed her years ago, and now 5 years later she is still healed! New Years Eve was not much different from this. I preached another sermon given by God and witnessed another 15 people healed.  Recently three different people who had cancer got healed, but waiting to hear the doctor’s report. All I know is the one, who couldn’t walk for months, is now able to walk! The others ones with cancer no longer have pain in their bodies.! What an amazing year that God has in store for them this 2017!

This is our Heavenly Father, who desires to heal us more than we desire to be healed. He wants to bless you more than you want to be blessed. I know everybody is making plans for their New Years resolutions, but let’s not forget God’s plans for our lives. His ways are higher than our ways. He is a good good Father, who is holy and perfect in every way. He is not waiting for you to make a mistake, to punish you. He is waiting for you to consecrate every area of your life, so He has permission to come and restore every area! I believe this is your year of blessing! ‘May you prosper as your soul prospers.’ ‘You will be the head and not the tail, the lender and not the borrower.’ Those are Scriptures and promises of the Holy Bible that I pray over you. For it is a book of both blessings and cursings. Gods words don’t fail, and neither does His love and forgiveness towards us. To our New Year filled with His amazing wonder and glory! God bless you!

Because they haven’t heard,
