Adventures in Singapore… Jesus heals a man at a Hindu Temple!

In my last blog I wrote about sharing the love of Jesus in Singapore with my friend Jeff Yuan inside a Buddhist temple.  Two Buddhist ladies were healed in the temple and the Kingdom was demonstrated in power. (if you missed it you can read it below) As we were walking along on streets and celebrating what Jesus just did, we were looking for other places where we could show the love of Jesus.  We spotted a Hindu Temple and stepped inside.

If you don’t know much about Hinduism they believe that all paths lead to God.    As we walked in the temple I saw a shrine built to a Indian guru.  His name is Sai Baba.   When he was 14 years old he claimed to have gone through a mystical transformation and that he was the reincarnation of a spiritual teacher.  He claimed to have spiritual powers and many Hindus consider him to be a god.  He has over 6 million followers worldwide.  He gave a lot of money away to charity and he was well respected because of this.  I don’t know if it’s true or not but several men came forward during his life and claimed that Sai Baba sexually abused them.   Sai Baba died in 2011.  There is a picture of the Shine built to him below…

It broke my heart to see people walk into the temple and worship this dead indian man like he was a god.  There were a few Hindu workers sitting around a table in the temple so we started chatting.  I asked them what they believed and they told me that all religions are equal and they all lead to the same God.  After listening to them share their beliefs I respectfully shared mine.  I shared my testimony of how Jesus set me free from the power of sin and death and gave me new life.  I went on to share how Jesus claimed to be the only way to heaven.  I told her that Jesus claimed to be the Son of God and how we must all come to one of three conclusions about Jesus…

Either Jesus was  1) a liar… because he claimed to be the Son of God and claimed to be the only way to heaven. 2) OR He was a crazy person.. confused about His identity and who he was.  3) OR He was who he said he was, the Son of the living God.

We had a respectful conversation.  I offered to pray for her that she would have an encounter with Jesus, but she declined.  As I was about to leave the temple I suddenly received a sharp pain in my right shoulder.  At first I didn’t understand what was happening, and I told Jeff that I wasn’t sure what was wrong with my shoulder, but I just started having intense pain.  Right then I saw an Indian man step out of his car and start to walk up the temple.  Jeff pointed to his direction and all the sudden it made sense why I was having the pain in my shoulder.  It was a word of knowledge showing that Jesus wanted to heal this man’s right shoulder.  I stepped out in faith and went up to the man and said, “sir do you happen to have any pain in your right shoulder?”  And he said, “well actually Yes I do!”  He looked puzzled as to how I knew that.

Asking the Indian temple worker if he had pain in his right shoulder…

He told me that three weeks before he was working in the Hindu temple and he tore his right shoulder and he was in a lot of pain.  I said, “sir I believe that Jesus wants to heal you right now,” and I asked if I could pray for his shoulder.  He agreed so I laid my hand on his right shoulder and said, “In the name of Jesus be healed.”

Praying for his right shoulder to be healed in Jesus name.

I asked him to test it out to see if his shoulder was any better…  A huge smile came across his face and he said, YES! It feels much better!  He was very surprised and very grateful.  Right after I prayed for his healing the pain I had in my right shoulder left!  

I went on to share with him that there is power in the name of Jesus.  I said you could have used Buddah’s, Mohammad’s, or any other name and nothing would have happened… but there is power in the name of Jesus because He is the only name under heaven by which men can be saved.

I shared with him how we must turn from our sin and put our faith and trust in Jesus.  I told him that Jesus could forgive him of all his sin and give him eternal life.  I shared my testimony and about Jesus being the only way to heaven.  I asked him if I could pray for him to have an encounter with Jesus and he agreed.  So once again I laid my hands on him and prayed that he would have an encounter with Jesus Christ.  After I prayed for him Jeff and I went on our way.   This all happened within the gates of the Hindu temple.

Light shines the best in darkness.  We need to stop being so afraid of demons and other religions and start being the light that God is calling us all to be.  We need to love people like Jesus did, and we need to step out in faith.  If God can use me he surely can use you.  The more we step out in faith the more amazing God adventures we will have!  If lived out right… serving Jesus is the greatest adventure you can ever have!

CfaN Burundi, Africa gospel crusade… part 3

Burundi Africa

 

Each night of the crusade, after Evangelist Kolenda preached the gospel, he prayed for the sick and bound demonic spirits. During this time you could hear demonic spirits manifesting from different sections of the crowd. Trained counselors would take these people to the deliverance tent where they would cast out these evil spirits. One night the deliverance tent was overflowing with those needing deliverance.  During the prayer for healing Daniel Kolenda called out words of knowledge of dozens of different ailments.  He then would have them take a step of faith and test out that area of the body that was ill.  Then something I will never forget happened; you could hear shouting and commotion coming from different sections of the crowd.  You would see crutches and braces rise above the crowd as people were being healed!  If someone received a healing in their body evangelist Kolenda asked them to come forward to testify.  Each night of the crusade there were incredible testimonies of those who received a healing touch from Jesus…

Notable miracles at this CfaN Gospel crusade…

 I was standing on the platform and I saw a young man come up to testify.  He was standing to my right just a few feet away from me.  Tears were streaming down his face and you could tell that he had just received a touch from Jesus.  He came forward to share.  As it turns out this young man never spoke a word in his life!  He was dumb from birth.  The first word that came out of his mouth was “JESUS!”  It was glorious!

Other notable miracles…

Man who was deaf for 23 years in his left ear was healed.

Baby who was deaf and blind was healed. The baby could clearly see and respond to sound.

Man who had a tumor for 14 years had found that it had vanished.

The last night of the crusade the President of Burundi invited us to his home for dinner as his special guests. Many delegates and government officials were present as well.  It was a huge celebration as to what God had done at the crusade.  The President asked Daniel Kolenda to share with everyone present.  He shared about the resurrection power of Jesus.  Before dinner started the President asked Evangelist Kolenda, and Peter Van Den Berg to lay hands on him and bless him and the country of Burundi.

Over this 4 night gospel crusade a total of  313,550 people gave their lives to Jesus, filled out a decision card, and have now been ushered into the church follow up system!   CfaN partners with local churches of all different denominations, and the local churches always explode with new converts. Over 50% of the CfaN crusade budget goes towards follow up! Only eternity will tell the full impact this ministry has made for the Kingdom. All glory to JESUS!

I recently got back from a CfaN gospel crusade in the country of Burundi, Africa in the capitol city of Bujumbura. Burundi is one the most impoverished nations in the world, and CfaN was led by the Holy Spirit to have a crusade there. Witchcraft had a heavy presence in the area, and people would often carry charms or amulets on them that were prayed over by witchdoctors.

The last night of the crusade there were so many people crammed into the front of the field, that it looked like someone could possibly suffocate. The ushers removed the barriers so the people could fill the space in the front of the platform. It looked like a sea of humanity as 200,000 people were present ready to hear the good news of the gospel. That evening, after the President of Burundi addressed the crowd, Evangelist Daniel Kolenda gave me time to preach the gospel.

Evangelist Kolenda told me to preach whatever God put on my heart so I lifted up the name of Jesus, built faith within the people, broke witchcraft curses, and preached on sin, repentance, and salvation through Jesus. About a minute into my message a small fight broke out in the crowd about 30 feet from the platform. A man started pushing people around him, and the people turned on him and started beating him with their shoes! I addressed the situation and within a minute or so they quieted down. It was definitely the craziest experience I have had preaching!

It was such an honor to lift up the name of Jesus to so many people, and I’m extremely grateful to Evangelist Kolenda and Peter Van Den Berg for the opportunity. Just a few weeks before this crusade I had a prophetic word from a friend of mine that I would preach before Presidents and it happened that night! We serve a big God that is able to do abundantly beyond what we could ever ask for or dream of! After I preached I handed the microphone back to Evangelist Kolenda and he shared a powerful gospel message and prayed for the sick.

Signs and wonders followed the preaching of the gospel and Evangelist Kolenda saw incredible miracles; deaf ears opened and cripples walked. The results that came back from that evening were astounding; 138,770 people gave their lives to Jesus in a single service! Afterwards, as I was thanking Evangelist Kolenda for giving me time to preach he told me, “Paul, this is only the beginning.”  This was a fulfillment of prophetic words that have been spoken over my life since 2003.
