Testimony Book 2


TO THE GLORY
OF GOD'S
HEALING POWER

Dearly Beloved of God
Jesus said, "Lo, I am with you always." I have been inspired by the Holy Spirit to place in this second book, testimonies sent to me, as many people have acknowledged being healed, receiving miracles, and being delivered by God the Father, in the Name of Jesus, and by the Power of the Holy Spirit.

I pray that the Holy Spirit will encourage and edify your spirit, and encourage your faith to receive all of the promises of God, given unto all who believe in His Name, for His Name, Jesus, is above every other name. Jesus said,
"If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates Me hates My Father also. If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated Me and My Father as well.

But they have done this in order that the word may be fulfilled that is written in their Law, 'They hated Me without a cause.' When the Helper comes, Whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of Truth, Who proceeds from the Father, He will bear witness of Me." John 15:22-26

"Let us therefore draw near with confidence To the throne of grace, That we may receive mercy And find grace to help in time of need."
Hebrews 4:16 (NASB)


Since coming to know Jesus and having completely given myself to Him on 10 February 1995, many things have changed in my life. Since coming to "Hosanna", Jesus has healed me through the Word of Knowledge ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the Name of Jesus.

As Pastor Lorraine prayed for me, a growth has been taken away, an ulcer in my stomach has been healed miraculously, my leg lengthened, my back healed, and a severe pain in the groin was cured. Also, the cramp in my fingers and feet has been healed.

I praise God with a grateful heart, for all that He has done for me.

In short, I am very pleased to be blessed by knowing God as my Lord and Saviour, and to serve Him forever. I have been truly blessed and anointed since my baptism in water.

LORD WE COME UNTO THEE
TO THY THRONE
TO PRAISE THY HOLY NAME,

"Finally, brethren, whatever is true, Whatever is honourable, whatever is pure, Whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, If there is any excellence And if anything worthy of praise, Let your mind dwell on these things."
Philippians 4:8 (NASB)


My daughter was born with a heart problem (a right chamber deformity) requiring surgery. When she was 18 months old, she was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit for another reason. The doctors said that, in her condition, she had a life expectancy of 8 years.

She had surgery on her heart. 2 1/2 years ago, the doctors informed me that she would require surgery again. A date was scheduled, and they sent a letter to my home advising the date for admission to the hospital. I had moved and was no longer at that address, consequently I didn't receive the letter. A few months ago, she became very sick and was admitted to the Children's hospital. When they did the x-rays, they advised that she had asthma, a collapsed lung, and a partially blocked artery to the heart, which may require surgery.

Pastor Colin and Pastor Lorraine came to the hospital and prayed for her. When examining the x-rays taken 2 days later, I enquired of the doctor, "Were there two lungs working?" He said, "Yes," after examining her case notes, to find that there should only be one working lung. He said that it was unusual, but we knew that God had given her the other lung.

On a Monday, 3 weeks later, I took her back to the cardiologist. His report stated, "For a child that has had this condition, surgery, etc., her heart seems to be functioning 'normally' and I will see her in 5 years for a check-up." A miracle! Praise the Lord! He has healed her completely. I thank God that He is always with us. I love Him and praise Him.

"What a God He is! How perfect in every way! All His promises prove true. He is a shield for everyone who hides behind Him."
Psalms 18:30 (Living)


Name Supplied - but the name of this dear mother who is most Grateful to the Lord our Christ for Healing her daughter, we've had to withhold, due to the antagonistic, vehement, threatening request of the daughter - whom Our Holy Lord most Graciously and Miraculously healed. (the daughter's name has also been removed)

We at 'HOSANNA' acknowledge this True Testimony of Almighty God's Miracle Works of Power in the midst of us - who are part of His One Universal Body of Christ - and we will not deny Christ before mankind - of this Joyous Testimony of Grace.

"Every one therefore who shall confess Me before men, him will I also confess before My Father Who is in Heaven. But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father Who is in Heaven"
Matthew 10:32,33


442. WHATEVER IS PURE

WHATEVER IS PURE, O LORD,
WHATEVER IS TRUE,
EVERY EXCELLENCE I SEE IN YOU.
AND I PRAISE YOU IN ALL THAT I DO,
FOR JESUS, I WANT TO BE LIKE YOU.

FOR JESUS, I WANT TO BE LIKE YOU. (JESUS)
FOR JESUS, I WANT TO BE LIKE YOU. (JESUS)
FOR JESUS, I WANT TO BE LIKE YOU.

"That at the Name of Jesus Every knee should bow, Of those who are in heaven, and on earth, And under the earth, And that every tongue should confess That Jesus Christ is Lord, To the glory of God the Father."
Philippians 2:10,11 (NASB)


When I first came to "Hosanna", I had many illnesses in my body.

Praise the Lord! He healed me of all of them.

The first thing I remember asking healing for, were the skin growths that were growing across my eyes. They had reached the edge of the iris and, according to the doctor, would soon need operating to remove them.

After prayer at Church, I was too nervous to look and see if the growths had gone but, next morning, dared to look, and PRAISE GOD, there was no trace of them!

The next healing I had was for a kidney complaint. My kidney was healed and I have not had a backache or bladder infection since. At one stage, I had a nasty sore that would come up on my cheek every couple of years. While there, it would last about 3 weeks and be very painful. This sore came up during the week and, on the Sunday, I had prayer for it, and instantly the pain left the area and, by the next morning, the sore was gone. It has never come back!

I have been healed of all "women's conditions." The curse has been broken and Jesus has set me free!

I have received many healings from Jesus, and have only mentioned a few. I probably should have written the healings down as I received them, because we are inclined to forget just what Jesus has done for us. I've also been set free from fear, anger, jealousy, pride and many other emotions that had me bound by Satan. Jesus wants us to live our lives in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. These are the Fruits of the Spirit.

As I continue to keep my eyes upon Jesus, He will bless me and keep me in health, because it is by His stripes we were healed. Thank you, Lord Jesus.

Recently, I had a lump under my arm. It was quite large, about the size of an almond, and I kept wondering what it was. I had prayer at Creative Ministries one Saturday afternoon and it went down a little, but was still there. On Sunday morning I went to Pastor Lorraine and she prayed. The lump completely disappeared while she was praying! Praise the Lord!

I was 32 weeks pregnant and, on Thursday 30 March 1995, had a pain near my rib cage on the right hand side. When I sat down, I couldn't get comfortable because of the pain.

I went to the "Hosanna" prayer meeting that night and asked Pastor Lorraine if she could pray for me. As she was praying, the Lord Jesus told her that my placenta was out of place, so she prayed again, and the placenta slowly moved back into place, and the pain went immediately!
Praise God! Jesus healed me through the power of the Holy Spirit!

Psalm 2:1 & 11 (NASB)


In July, my left arm had lost its power. I had virtually no strength in it at all and couldn't even hold a coffee cup. This went on for almost a week. I went to the Church I attend, "Hosanna", on Sunday 19th July.

After Pastor Lorraine Isbister had preached, she received several Words of Knowledge from God. One of those was for someone with a pinched nerve in the neck. I didn't think it was for me, but the Lord knew what I didn't. I had thought that a pinched nerve would cause pain, but I had no pain. I went forward for prayer anyway and, yes, I had a pinched nerve.

Pastor Lorraine laid hands on me and prayed into the nerve for it to be released and it was. The Lord Jesus graciously healed me. The power came back into my hand immediately and now it's as good as new.
Thank you Jesus for healing me.

596. WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?

O LORD, IT'S YOU, WHO MADE THE HEAVEN
AND THE EARTH AND THE SEA,
AND ALL THAT IS WITHIN THEM.

WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE AGAINST YOU,
O GOD?
WHY DO THE PEOPLE HATE YOUR WORD,
O GOD?
THE KINGS OF THE EARTH
TAKE UP THEIR STAND AGAINST YOU, LORD,
AND AGAINST YOUR ANOINTED.
WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE, O LORD?

"Therefore you will joyously draw water From the springs of salvation.
And in that day will say, 'Give thanks to the Lord, call on His Name, Make known His deeds among the peoples; Make them remember that His Name is exalted.' "
Isaiah 12:3,4 (NASB)


I suffered with rheumatoid arthritis for many years and it caused me considerable pain. I worked for several hours a day in my delicatessen and, being in my sixties, I often wondered if I could cope. Then, Praise the Lord! I was invited to go to "Hosanna" Church.

I was immediately overjoyed at the love and spontaneity of the people who obviously love the Lord Jesus Christ. Pastor Lorraine Isbister was preaching and, as she spoke, the Holy Spirit flowed through me. Then she prayed for me and I was overcome by the Holy Spirit.

Praise God, I am completely healed!

I would encourage all who are in difficulties and pain to "Come to Jesus!" Thank you, Lord, thank you.

533. THEREFORE WITH JOY

THEREFORE, WITH JOY,

"Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, Bless His Holy Name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits, Who pardons all your iniquity, Who heals all your diseases."
Psalm 103:1-3 (NASB)


I give thanks and praise the Lord that, 'By His stripes we are healed.' Jesus said it - I believe it - and that settles it, and to Him be all the glory! Nothing is impossible for Him to do.

On 15 October 1994, I had an x-ray because of severe pains in my chest. The doctor said that I had cancer in my right lung, but did not advise surgery. I took tablets day and night, 4 hourly, to control nausea and coughing.

On 2 February 1995, I had the opportunity to go to the "Hosanna" Church at Parkside for prayer for healing. God gave Pastor Lorraine Isbister the wonderful gift of healing and He healed me this day, in His Lovely Name.

No more tablets, no nausea or coughing, so I just praise the Lord and thank Him and give Him all the glory! But not forgetting the people of our Church who were also praying for me. Isn't God good! Also, last year I lost the use of my legs because of a haemorrhage in my spine and God healed that too!

Isn't He wonderful?

"Therefore, since we receive a kingdom Which cannot be shaken, Let us show gratitude, By which we may offer to God An acceptable service with reverence and awe."
Hebrews 12:28 (NASB)


I began to suffer pain in the prostate area, and the doctor diagnosed a very swollen gland. The pain gradually grew more severe, and I decided to have the laying on of hands at "Hosanna".

The relief was immediate and, 2 days later, I returned to the same doctor who had examined me previously, and asked him to explore the area again. He said the gland was normal. I praise God for His healing power to have touched my body.

261. AS FOR ME

AS FOR ME, I WILL SERVE YOU, LORD,
ALL THE ENDLESS DAYS OF MY LIFE.
EVERY MOMENT WILL MY HEART ARISE
AND SING TO YOUR PRAISE.

FOR I LOVE YOU, LORD,
FOR ALL YOU'VE DONE,
IN GIVING OF YOURSELF TO ME,
IN YOUR BEAUTY AND YOUR PURITY
AND TRUTH AND LOVE.

SO I WILL SING AND PRAISE YOU,
I WILL SING AND GIVE YOU GLORY.

"But the lovingkindness of the Lord Is from everlasting to everlasting On those who fear Him, And His righteousness to children's children."
Psalm 103:17 (NASB)


All through my pregnancy, my husband, Darren and I were praying that the birth would be quick and easy and, praise the Lord, He certainly answered it.

Our daughter, Taylor, was due on 6 April and, on the Monday after the due date, I had an appointment at the hospital for a checkup. After the checkup, my doctor told me he thought the baby would come before the end of the week, but he'd book me in on Friday to be induced on Saturday, just in case. But I knew the Lord had everything in control.

I went through that week, every day thinking, "Is this the day?" Finally, Thursday came and I began thinking, "Maybe I will have to be induced."

That evening I wanted prayer, so Darren and I went to the prayer meeting at the Church. I explained to Pastor Lorraine that they wanted to induce the baby. Pastor Lorraine said, "No way!" Straight away, my faith leapt within me, and I knew the Lord's timing would be perfect. Pastor Lorraine then prayed for me and we all believed the baby would come the next day.

Sure enough, at 3:00 am on Friday morning, I had my first contraction and, 5 minutes later, the next. By the time I had a shower and got dressed, they were 2 minutes apart. At 5:14 am, Taylor Jade Megow was born. The Lord is SO good!

The day we left the hospital, both Taylor and I had to be checked over before we were allowed to go. The only thing the doctor found wrong was that Taylor's hip sockets weren't as smooth as they should have been, and wanted to do an ultrasound on them.
I asked Pastor Lorraine to pray for this and, praise God, the baby was healed, as the right hip was slightly out of its socket. Pastor Lorraine also checked the length of her legs and the right leg was 1 cm shorter than the left one and, again, she was healed!

I give God all the glory for He's blessed us with a beautiful, healthy, little girl and I know He will protect and look after her all the days of her life, for she is His.

About ten days ago, I went to my doctor as I had fluid in my left ear. He referred me to an ear, nose and throat specialist to have the ear drained.

Last Sunday night, I went forward for prayer from Pastor Lorraine Isbister of "Hosanna" Church. Instantly the pain and pressure ceased and I have had no further trouble, and I will not have to keep the specialist's appointment.

SEE THE LORD OF HOSTS.

"For the wages of sin is death, But the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 6:23 (NASB)


I asked Pastor Lorraine if she could pray for a sore knee that I had hurt playing basketball the day before. She did, and the pain left within a few minutes.

Then my Mum remembered that my right leg was about 1/4" shorter than the left, and was causing my spine to curve. Pastor Lorraine sat me on a chair and told me to stretch out both legs. By now the difference was considerably more. She prayed and we saw the right leg grow down and actually go past the left one. We were amazed, but Pastor Lorraine prayed for the left one to grow to catch up with the right one, which it did! Of course, this resulted in me being nearly an inch taller.

The next day, my school friends noticed this even before I told them what had happened! I am glad that I don't have to do my exercises any more, or wear an insert in my shoe. Praise the Lord!

Having being diagnosed by the doctors that I had cancer, I went to the Cathedral of Praise, where Pastor Lorraine prayed for me and I was healed from the two secondary lumps in the upper breast and neck. God healed me, and I came through with flying colours! The lumps completely disappeared! It was a miracle from God! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

Revelation 4:11 (NASB)


Robyn Marie Plunkett was born on 29 January 1989. She heard nothing for the whole 9 months she was in the womb, and until she was 8 weeks of age. After conducting several tests at home, eg. banging saucepan lids together behind her, making loud noises, etc., with not as much as a blinking eyelid, we knew that she had a hearing problem.

We then turned to God, and took her for prayer to the "Hosanna" Church. Pastor Lorraine took authority, in the Name of Jesus, over the spirit of deafness and, from that moment, Robyn responded to every sound. After prayer, her hearing improved week by week until, three years later, a check by the CAFHS nurse found her hearing to be 100%. At her 3 year old check, Robyn's speech was slightly behind, but we have since had prayer for her speech and know, in faith, that Robyn is going to be a fluent talker as well as listener.

I'd just like to let you know, that I 'phoned my sister-in-law, Cay, in South Africa, after I got home (she's the person you sent a prayer hankie to) and I was pleased to hear that, because she is feeling so well now, she feels a fraud!

She has not had any pain, bleeding from the bowel or nausea since January 1993, which was the time she received that hankie and our volumes of prayer. The Lord really helped me write to her during those 2 months, explaining salvation, healing, and especially about maintaining her belief in this healing.

Tonight she sounded happy and was eager to hear about you and tonight's service. I'm sending off two tapes for her birthday in May, "Arise, Be Healed" and "Morning Star." Cay listened, interested in the fact that both my grand daughters have received the Lord and been baptised in the Holy Spirit.

So I eagerly await for the day she arrives to visit us in South Australia, as I know the Lord has His time of Baptism for her also and, wouldn't it be wonderful when she comes out here, if that was the Lord's time?

I woke up on Sunday morning to go to Church and found I had a dull pain in the left side of my head. I had suffered from severe migraines since about the age of 11 years. I went to Church, but the pain was getting worse. I could not sit any longer. I had severe nausea and felt like I was going to vomit. I had been trying to control it all through the service, but it got too much. I quickly got up and left the service and spent the rest of the time outside.

After Church, I went home and went to bed and was in much pain. I went to sleep, but it was really difficult to sleep properly, as I had this pain all the time. On Monday morning I was lying in bed and my head was banging. I felt that I couldn't get out of bed. From that morning until later that night I vomited, had diarrhoea, an aching body and a high temperature. I tried to drink, but it would soon come back up, even water. I then vomited green bile, but my stomach was empty because I hadn't been able to eat.

I prayed to the Lord and pleaded for Him to take the pain from my head. I didn't understand what was happening to me. I was praying, but I was getting worse. By late afternoon, I could hardly walk, my body was just aching and I was exhausted. The skin had peeled off my lips because of dehydration.

My friend, Lyn, came home about 4:30 pm and came in to see if I was alright, but I definitely wasn't. She rang Pastor Lorraine, who came over about 6:30 pm. The Lord had spoken to her on the way over to my place and He said that it was deliverance, not healing. My body was burning up with a temperature. Pastor Lorraine prayed and, by the power of the Holy Spirit, I was delivered from the oppression.

I had an indentation on the left side of my head, from birth, and the Lord healed the cracks in my skull and lifted the whole area up, back to normal. The vomiting had stopped and so had the diarrhoea but, as she prayed, the temperature moved from one part of my body to another, but finally went too. All this time, I still had the pain in my head so, in the process of praying about this pain, a lot of other things were dealt with. After an hour, I was sitting up and the temperature had gone. I could get out of bed and was able to drink.

I woke up the next morning, and all the aches and pain, exhaustion and temperature were gone. My body was healed - back to normal, just like nothing had happened. It was like a breath of fresh air, and I was set free! The pain in my head had gone and I felt alive!

Jesus had set me free!

Jesus came to set the captives free and, that day, I was freed from something that had held me captive for a very long time. I give all the praise and glory to Almighty God, Who is faithful and all powerful. If you trust Him, and are willing to let Him have His way in your life, He will do far more than you could ever imagine, for His Glory - that His Name would be lifted up - Jesus! The Name of Jesus is above EVERY other name.

I thank the Lord for His grace and mercy towards me, and the beautiful Holy Spirit, and the Lord for the ministry that comes through His servant, Pastor Lorraine Isbister. Praise you, Jesus!

"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.

Psalm 91:1,2 (NASB)


My mother, aged 73, was in extreme pain and was taken to the Mildura hospital and, because of the seriousness of the pain, the doctors instructed my brother to take her to the Royal Adelaide hospital. When she arrived, they did numerous tests, but were unable to find the cause of the severe pain, in fact, they as much as said that she was about to die, and to call in all of the family to prepare themselves for this to happen.

Pastor Lorraine came to the hospital on the Monday afternoon and prayed for her. My mother, who is a Roman Catholic, knew that she would be healed, because she knew the presence of God had come with Pastor Lorraine.

As Pastor Lorraine prayed for her, she had a Word of Knowledge that there was an aneurism on the aorta, and prayed accordingly that Jesus would take this condition from my mother's body. It was so wonderful. All pain left, and the next day my mother was out of bed, completely healed, walking, and was sent home immediately to Mildura. She has been so well and rejoicing in what God had done for her.
