HEALING OF A MIGRAINE by Jeannette Elkins
On Saturday, April 18th, a migraine woke me up before 6:30 am. I got up to see if a cup of coffee or two would help, but it didn't help at all. Mike got up around 8 am which is unusual, as he usually sleeps later on our day off. I asked him to pray for me, and as he did, I felt strengthened within my body and some of the nausea left. But within five minutes after the prayer, the symptoms became stronger and I went into our darkened bedroom to lie down. As I lay down, I called out loud to Jesus to hear my prayer and help me. I was in torment and I quoted Isaiah 53:4. I had the defeating and depressing thought go through my mind, "I won't be able to do the laundry today, and Mike's Mom is coming tomorrow and there are so many things I won't be able to get done.," After a few minutes, however, I felt the Holy Spirit say to me, "Rise and be healed." I forced myself to get up and sort the clothes for washing, and then I made up the bed. I knew I had to act on my faith to receive the promise. I asked Mike to get me a coke and we had some breakfast, and as I was able to eat and keep it down, I started doing my other chores. Within one hour, I felt fine and had so much energy it surprised Mike. I was able to get more done than I dared hope for, and I know it was a supernatural, miraculous healing I had experienced. We do have power over the enemy, and I rejoice in this knowledge. Praise to the Great Physician who knows our every need and hears us when we call. Thank you, Lord!
February 12, 2013, Freida was diagnosed with metastatic cancer that had already destroyed 2 discs in her lower spine and 4 cancer specialists told her that she only had 6 months to no more than 1 year to live and nothing could be done other than radiation and chemo. Pastor Mike, Jeannette, Freida's family and other members of Redemptive Glory Church laid hands on her, prayed with her and anointed her with healing oil at that time. Freida rededicated her life to God and promised to serve Him. God healed her and she still continues to be cancer-free. God proved the doctors wrong by sending her to a neurosurgeon who was able to remove the cancer-inflicted areas of her spine and rebuild the discs. The morning of the surgery, Freida prayed to God for healing and that if He woke her up from this surgery, then she knew without a doubt that God had a plan for her life here on this earth. He woke her up and she's still continuing to serve God and it's been more than 3 years since that horrible diagnosis. God is still in the healing business and is still performing miracles so dedicate your life to Him and trust in Him and have faith in Him.
TICK BITE HEALING by Jeannette Elkins
To celebrate the Easter Holiday in 2007, Mike and I visited my nephew's house, and we walked down to see his camper and houseboat on the Haw River, enjoying being outside for most of the day. Then, after a two-week interval, Mike noticed a tick on my left leg, just behind the knee, and we removed it. Then at work a week or so later, my leg began itching pretty insistently at that spot and it was red and felt hot to the touch. I took my anointing oil and applied it to the place of the bite, asking the Lord for His blessing. I went about my day as usual, and the itching, redness, and heat went away and I have had no more symptoms since that time. I give God the glory and honor and praise for sparing me from what could have been a very serious situation. Mike read an article not long afterward that described a woman's terrible battle with Lyme disease and the magnitude of ailments she suffered, so I am truly thankful for the blessing of the Lord that I did not have to face any of that. I give you the glory and honor and praise, Lord!
SHOULDER HEALING MIRACLE by Mike Elkins
Several years ago, I began having trouble with my shoulders to the point that I was limited in making any kind of movement without suffering acute pain. One night while I was watching a Christian television show, I realized and was convincted that I could claim the healing of my shoulders right then. I just stood up where I was and received complete healing in both shoulders. It is a testimony to the power of God that He hears us and wants us well! No doctors, no medicine, and no surgery. Hallelujah! I give God all the glory and thank Him for what He did for me on the cross!
BACK PAIN HEALED
On June 14, 2009, Jim Lee came forward for prayer after the morning's service. He said he had been experiencing lower back pain for a while and wanted prayer for healing. Pastor Mike called the Altar Team to minister to him, and after we all layed hands on Jim and prayed, he asked Jim to bend over and see how his back felt. Jim bent down twice and said there was no pain. We give our God, who is faithful and true, all the glory and honor and praise.
