The Power of a Testimony
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony”It’s your testimony that’s going to cause you to overcome.
Mike Hoesch didn’t pay much attention to the small sore on his chest. It started out as a minor annoyance - an itch that wouldn’t go away. But after a year, he decided to get it checked out.
He found out it was a malignant skin tumor. A spirit of fear instantly gripped him, but deep down, he knew God could heal him. He turned to God’s Word and searched for things he could do to get God to move on his behalf. But he didn’t get better, only worse. “For the next five years, [the tumor] clung to me and sucked the life right out of me,” Mike shares. “I grew so weak.”
Mike got to the place where he had given up hope when a friend brought him Andrew’steaching You’ve Already Got It! The message resonated with his spirit. Then one day, Mike came across Matthew 21:22, which says, “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” It was a scripture he’d been familiar with, but this time, he read it backwards: if you have received, you have believed. That was a revelation for him.
“God had been trying to share with me that when Jesus went to the cross, He purchased my healing,” Mike says. “There wasn’t anything else I had to do but believe and receive.” Once Mike received the revelation of healing, no one could convince him otherwise: “I noticed after about a month, the tumor got smaller. I wasn’t surprised, because I knew I was healed. Within six months’ time, it was completely gone.”
Trina Porter didn’t know that Andrew’s teachings were preparing her for a life-ordeath trial. Her husband, Alistair, fell off a roof in a freak accident that left him in a coma. Unable to pray for himself and unable to believe for his own healing, it was up to her to receive for him.
The doctors told her that the fall should have killed her husband instantly. She quietly had a conversation with God. “I said to God, ‘You said he’d be okay.’ And God very clearly said to me, ‘And I haven’t changed My mind.’”
It was a long night for both the surgeons and the Porters. As Trina remembers it, she says, “The surgeon came to the door. . . . He was still in all his greens [with] the little mask around his neck.” Trina continues, “He just smiled, and I said to him, ‘Best day’s work you’ve ever done?’ [and he said,] ‘Yep.’” There was no permanent brain damage to be found, and just three weeks after the accident, Al was ready to be released!
She’s Going to Be Fine
She’s going to be just fine.’” Bud remembered Andrew saying in one of his teachings that how you start a battle is usually how you finish it. After surgery and spending six grueling weeks in the hospital, Bud was able to bring Gina home, something the doctors said was impossible. But with God, all things are possible!
The power of a testimony is real! When you experience the faith of another, I tell you, it’s contagious. And these stories are just the tip of iceberg. You can watch the complete stories and many more on the Healing Journeys, Volume 1-6 DVDs, which I’m offering as part of the God Wants You Well Package.
