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
The beginning was tough. We sensed opposition. So we stopped and prayed
against the spirit that opposed our work. Immediately things started to
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.
Healed of neck pain
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
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.
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.
Healed of back pain
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.
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
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.
