"She jumped and shouted, 'What did you do?!'"

By Tiferet Yeshua Congregation

Recently, some of our congregants attended a seminar led by "The Last Reformation" to train them in power evangelism. Here is Yehudit's testimony.

Probably the greatest fear in street evangelism is approaching a stranger. I was taught at the seminar how to approach people very naturally, asking them if they suffer from some pain, and if so, whether I could pray for them.

The beginning was tough. We sensed opposition. So we stopped and prayed against the spirit that opposed our work. Immediately things started to happen!

Healed of neck pain
We approached two middle-aged couples. Camilla, my instructor, asked the women if they spoke English. "Of course." Then Camilla asked one of the ladies if she suffered from any pain in her body. The woman responded that she had back pain. I asked if I could put my hand on the hurting spot and pray. Praise God, she agreed! Now I would get to see if God would use me as He used the team from Europe.

I put my hand on her upper back and commanded the pain to leave. She jumped and shouted, "What did you do?!" She looked thoroughly surprised, and Camilla asked whether the pain was totally gone. "Almost," she replied. So I put my hand on her back again and commanded all the pain to leave - which it did! She was overwhelmed and told those with her to "join the fun."

She told us that she also had pain in her lower back. I put my hand on her lower back and she was instantly healed. Now she began to ask: "Who are you, how do you do this?"

I told her, "We are followers of Yeshua the Messiah. He healed people and told us to do the same. So we do." Then her husband stretched his arm towards us and asked for prayer. A team member prayed for him, and he was healed as well.

Healed of back pain
We continued and came to a spot where dogs available for adoption were tied to a fence. First, I went to say hello to the dogs while Camilla talked with one of the young women who worked there, and discovered that she too suffered from back pain. She called me to come. I put my hand on this beautiful young woman's upper back and commanded the pain to leave. The pain left immediately, and the girl asked me, "Can I come to live with you?" It was just so sweet. Then she asked for prayer for the pain in her lower back, and received another healing. Like the others, she wanted to learn more about us.

As we were leaving, her friend ran after us and asked me, "What did you do to my friend?" I told her that God had healed her and asked if she needed prayer for some pain. She also had back pain, and she also was healed.

We crossed the road and one of our team members stopped a very tall Israeli man, asking if he had pain somewhere. The man stretched out his left arm and received prayer from our male team member. Nothing happened the first time, but we persisted and he was healed after the second prayer!

Another woman told us that she doesn't believe in God. Still, she admitted she had upper back pain. I asked if I could put my hand on her back. I commanded the pain to leave and she jumped, asking, "What happened?!" The pain had left! Hallelujah! She said that if she had not seen this happen, she would not have believed. I told her that it was Yeshua the Messiah, who healed her. She called her husband to come over. She was totally blown away. She told us that she also had pain in her abdomen. I asked if it was an infection. She replied, "Yes, very painful." I put my hand there and commanded the pain to leave, and the pain left! Glory to Yeshua! She was all smiles. Hearing about Yeshua was very natural for her, after the miracles she received.

Receiving prayer
Then at Tiferet Yeshua, Miri's friend Gilad, heard of the healings. He asked if I could pray for his hand, which had been hurt in an accident. I agreed, but told him that I was not a superwoman - it is Yeshua who does the miracles.

I put my hand on his and commanded the pain to leave in Yeshua's name. Even before I touched him, he said he began to feel an odd sensation in his hand and then the pain was gone.

Then Gilad shared that one of his legs was shorter that the other. I asked if he'd like prayer for that also, and he eagerly agreed. Gil, our pastor, joined with us.

We began to pray for him, commanding the right leg to grow to the length of the other. And it did! He shouted, "I can feel it happening!" He had to take out the special orthopedic support from his right shoe.

Gilad stood in front of the whole congregation and testified of his healing. Three days later he became a confessing believer! Yeshua told us that we would lay hands on the sick and they would get well, as a sign to the unbeliever. The word of God is proving true in Tel Aviv.

"His end goal was to make sure that if the king ever visited that new colony, he would immediately feel as though he had never left his capital city."

Have you ever wondered what the word "apostle" meant to those living in the time the New Covenant was written? I believe that understanding the original meaning and use of the word "apostle" (in Greek - apostolos) will help bring clarity to the role of apostles today. Here are some things I have discovered:

Even before the New Covenant was set down in writing, Phoenicians and Greeks used the word apostle, and later the Roman Empire adopted the word and developed its meaning and function further. Apostle, in its most simplistic form, means a "sent one." But when we dig deeper and ask who was the sender, for what purpose was the messenger sent and what was the message he carried, we discover layers of profound meaning that point to the Kingdom of God.

Mission Possible

Two thousand years ago, apostle was not a religious title. It was used in secular language to describe a king sending out a fleet of battle ships (but not limited to ships) on a specific mission. They were to sail to foreign lands to colonize new territory and to make it just like the territory from which they had been sent. The head captain on the lead ship was called an apostle.

Alongside the apostle traveled a team of skilled tradesmen: teachers of language and culture, architects and builders, soldiers to fight and maintain order, doctors and others with foundational occupations for the success and expansion of the new colony. The apostle was sent with exclusive authority from the king to oversee and direct all that was done. His end goal was to make sure that if the king ever visited that new colony, he would immediately feel as though he had never left his capital city. The way of life, culture, language, architecture, education and so on, was supposed to be just like it was in Rome.

Huge Statement

I have put a positive light on the role of Roman apostles from 2000 years ago, but in reality, their colonial mission was full of bloodshed and corruption. Despite this, when Yeshua gave power and authority to his disciples he called them apostles. In the language and context of that day this was understood to be a HUGE statement - namely, "Yeshua is not just rabbi, but also King; and His kingdom is on its way to taking over the world!"
