I am new around here, and only a week or so old when it comes to being on worthy. I shared a part of my testimony in the forums, and was well greeted. So thank you! I want to expound a little on my testimony here. For those of you who have not seen my testimony, I would like to take a moment to catch you up on a few things. Nearing the end of 2015 I was severely ill and was hospitalized. I didn't realize it at the time though, and I spent a great deal of time in the hospital. It was there I was diagnosed with a plethora of different mental health issues. Anxiety, depression, and PTSD among many others that I cannot all name. I am still currently on medication, and under doctors care until I am "declared" by the doctors to no longer need them. I am hoping that with my recent healing, which I will tell you about in a moment, that I will be able to make a full recovery and get back up on my feet.
Now, to my healing and additional baptism of the holy spirit:
I had popped into an online chat room on a video feed from youtube. It was of a fairly well known church, and they were holding a prayer service. I had popped in for the sole reason of letting others know that someone, whom is also well known, was sick and was in need of prayer. I didn't do much chatting but I stuck around. Perhaps it was an inclination of what was to come? I digress, my visit wasn't in vain. The pastor of this church received a word of knowledge while praying aloud. It was about someone who was watching online. This person was heavily afflicted with a spirit of suicide. My eyes got wide. That's me! I thought. I stuck around to hear more but nothing more was said other than they had prayed for the spirit to be removed.
I briefly chatted on and off with some of the people in the chatroom. I saw that one brother was announcing that, if anyone needed healing he would speak to them through facebook. I went to facebook and messaged him immediately. The wait was on! I thought he might not get around to me that night, because there were others that were asking for healing as well. It was getting later and later in the evening. It was then he reached out and contacted me through facebook. We spoke a little before he called me through messenger. He began telling me of the father's love for me, and what Jesus had done for me in order for myself to be healed. He had words of knowledge that only could come from God. Things he would have never known in the natural. Things only God and I would know.
I have to admit I was a little surprised. I had never received words like this before. He spoke of different ailments, injuries, and even the illnesses that have affected me for most of my life. He addressed the "smaller" issues first, but what an impact it had on me! One of my legs, which was shorter than the other grew out! Something that I had dealt with on and off in my life, but was painful to deal with. Then he proceeded to my back. Since I was off kilter when walking I was in pain. God healed that as well. Then came the BIG ONE. Not only had I had a serious injury when I was younger, my head was not all the way in the car and I slammed the door shut on it. It hurt for awhile but then faded.. God wanted to not only heal me of my mental health issues, but that old traumatic injury as well.
The Lord healed that old injury through that man. I was then healed of my mental health issues, and could feel a tingling on the side of my head. The man spoke words of life to my brain, and each part was healed with the help of the holy spirit. At some point, I cannot remember when but I had started crying. I was so happy! This is what I had been waiting for! I had asked on and off for the healing and it had not yet come. I had all but given up on it, but before all this healing began my hope and belief was rekindled. I held onto that hope, that belief very tightly. This man, I had met, continued to minister to me until I had heard him say, "Did you ever ask to be baptized in the Holy Spirit?" I was floored! I had been asking on and off for that too, but had not yet received an answer.
Jesus even showed up in my room and had wrapped his arm around me. I was ecstatic! It was then I asked him to baptize me in the holy spirit. He did so and I felt something come on me. I couldn't quite make it out, but my left side of my head was tingling again. I then thanked the Lord for all he had done. It was there that this brother in Christ had told me about who I was in Christ, and that he would send a book full of scripture to show me who I was. I gladly accepted that book, and am currently reading it, albeit slowly. I find myself going back over certain parts to see how it all plays together. It has not fully sunk in yet, but I've made great breakthroughs lately with God's help. And now, I am currently going to start attending classes about how to move in the gifts of the holy spirit, and I will learn how to be submissive to the spirit so he can work with me to help others.
I looked forward to many wonderful adventures with our Lord. ❤️
