The Power of Testimony

A great story in the Bible that shows the impact of a single testimony is the Samaritan woman at the well.  It says in John 4:39 Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me everything I ever did.” She was more than happy to tell anyone and everyone in the town about her encounter with Jesus... and we all know how that story goes! Every testimony that glorifies God and shares our encounters with Him has the ability to create ripples in the world around us, and that's what we would like to start here. While the Bible is a wonderful love letter from our Father, it is also encouraging to see how God is moving now,  how He is showing up in our lives today.

If you have a short testimony or praise report of how God is moving that you would like to share we would love to hear from you! If you are needing encouragement or hope,  take some time to read through these testimonies and hear how God has shown up for others. Whatever brings you here today, may God's blessing be upon you.

I’ve always believed in the authority of a believer in Jesus to cast out demons, but for 15 years as a senior pastor, I did not cast out a single demon from anyone. The second night of our revival meetings a young man I was praying for began growling and writhing on the floor - instantly I knew it was demonic. 90 minutes later there were 35 demons cast out of this man and I knew two things:

1. I needed to repent for allowing so many in my church to suffer under demonic bondage.
2. I knew God was opening me up to a fresh anointing to walk in His authority in the spirit realm.    

Now, four months later, I estimate that at least 75 deliverances have taken place, many among pastors and leaders within our own church.  God is bringing freedom on a weekly basis throughout all our ministries. Even tonight a man who had never met me before walked up to me at Celebrate Recovery and asked if I could do deliverance on him! I suspect we are becoming a safer church for Jesus to bring people who are desperate to find freedom.  Praise the Lord!

There are so many wonderful things that God has done in my life since I came to M4 back in October, but the one I would like to share with you today is one of the deepest prayers that God has answered for me. For the last 5 1/2 years, since I became pregnant with my daughter and gave my life to Jesus, one of my biggest prayers to God was that she would grow up knowing that He loved her and she wasn't alone. That we would be surrounded by other believers, that she would have other people pouring the love of God into her, that she would have wonderful role models to look up to, and that she would have friends with parents who shared our beliefs.... coming from a non-christian family/background, and a life built away from the church, it was a HUGE transition to go through.

Between the pandemic, my own struggle with not feeling "christian enough" and feeling like I had too much trauma to bring value to my new relationships... making friends in the church was really difficult. I was in and out of churches in the area for the last 5+ years trying to find a place that felt like home. I was struggling with feeling like I was failing and unable to provide that dream for my daughter and myself... and then God led me here through a Facebook ad of all things. After some incredible encounters  over these last few months at Hunger for Revival and the Friday Night Fires,  I have received so much inner healing/deliverance and have finally felt like I belong somewhere. I don't feel like an outsider anymore, I'm no longer carrying that weight of unworthiness, and I'm really starting to grow roots in this community. God has been faithful to those deep cries in my heart for all these years, and I am seeing my daughter and myself stepping into that dream I had at the beginning. God has brought me to a place where I have found more community, connection, friendships and mentors in the last 5 months at M4 than I had in the last 5+ years of struggling on my own. After all those years of isolation and walking alone I am so incredibly grateful to be where I am today and give ALL glory and praise to Him. God was faithful through it all, even when I couldn't see it.. He is such a wonderful Father. <3

I was delivered from the spirit of suicide.
I was delivered from the spirit of manipulation.
During prayer, I was set free from the fear of a particular person in my life.
Being prayed over, for me to be able to see myself the way God sees me, God called me precious and I saw myself as precious and felt it too.
All of these things have had a major impact on pretty much every other aspect of my life.
Praise God. Thank You so much for loving me.

A few weeks ago I went to see my daughter in Pennsylvania. Just before I left, my lower back started to hurt. I had received a distant prayer and it went away, then it came back just before I came home. It only hurt for a day the second time. I haven’t had problems since.

God has set me free from so much bondage in the last five months I feel like an entirely different person. On the second night of the revival, I went for prayer and demonic spirits started to manifest from my body. They would throw me to the ground and shriek from my mouth. Pastor Aaron and the ministry team prayed for my deliverance for an hour and a half where about 35 spirits were cast out that night. This was the first of many deliverances God has brought me through.

During the next five months, I was set free from 87 different spirits and strongholds that had me bound. The following is a list of all the named things that the Lord has delivered me from, but many were unnamed: pornography, masturbation, lust, unforgiveness, hatred, bitterness, depression, loneliness, witchcraft, procrastination, slothfulness, complacency, trauma, abandonment, fantasy, death, suicide, unfulfilled purpose, fear, shame, guilt, profanity, disqualification, unbelief, atheism, Mormonism, confusion, idolatry, distraction, pride, voyeurism, criticism, yoga, Satan worship, filth, uncleanness, fear of man, nothingness, rejection, and multiple spirits of unforgiveness that were tied to different people. Two big things I struggled with were depression and pornography, but my mind has never been clearer, and I haven’t looked at porn since October!

Years ago, I felt called to ministry as a teenager, but my sinful lifestyle kept me from fulfilling what God had for me. Shame and guilt consumed my soul. I felt like God could never use me, but He saved me from the schemes of the enemy. Now I have new life and a new sense of purpose! I am living for His Kingdom and fulfilling the ministry He has for me. The things that dominated my life are the very things that God is using to bring freedom to those around me! I have documented most of what Jesus did for me and put it into a blog. If you are interested in reading the details go to HowChristFreedMe.blogspot.com
