Testimony Book 8


TO THE GLORY
OF GOD'S
MIRACLE POWER


Jesus said,
"But whoever shall deny Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven."

I have been instructed by the Holy Spirit to place in this eighth book, testimonies of miracles that have taken place in the midst of witnesses, who have seen and heard and received from Almighty God, the fullness of the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit, in the Name of Jesus.

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,

"Wisdom is vindicated by her deeds."
(Matthew 11:19b)


"Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles had occurred in Tyre and Sidon which occurred in you, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. Nevertheless I say to you, it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgement, than for you."
(Matthew 11:21,22)

"Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth; Oh sing praises to the Lord."
Psalm 68:32NKJV


I was woken early in the morning by a 'phone call from a very frantic mother.

This woman had received a miraculous healing from a nervous breakdown, when the Lord intervened upon me as I ministered in the country, to call at her home in a city that I was going through. She had received such a blessing in her release, that her whole family came to reside in Adelaide.

On the morning she 'phoned, I knew I had been prepared by the Holy Spirit and empowered with Authority Anointing, awakening in His ANOINTING.

This mother was Registered Sister and, that morning, her son, who was approximately 10 years old, had not been able to arise from his bed, as his whole head had fallen on his chest, below his right shoulder. The mother knew there was no way she could have him taken to hospital for, to move him, could have severed his spinal cord.
I quickly got dressed and went to the home.

The sight of that child's dilemma still remains fresh in my memory.He was in such a position!
His head was firmly planted on his chest. I knew, even to put my hand on his head was dangerous, so I prayed for him in the Name of Jesus.

Nothing happened.
I anointed him, lightly dropping the oil on him and prayed.
Nothing happened.
I left the room and fell on my knees and cried out to God!

The Holy Spirit spoke so gently to me, 'Lorraine, BREAK the CURSE.'

I went back into the bedroom and the family were gathered there with me.
In the AUTHORITY invested in the NAME of Jesus, I spoke against Satan, taking authority over him and the curse, BREAKING the child free from Satan's hold.
Right before our eyes, the head was LIFTED off the chest, MIRACULOUSLY and PLACED FIRMLY back in PLACE, with no effort from the child, who just looked up and smiled.

No-one had touched him.
The Mighty Lord our God had intervened supernaturally!
The victory was DONE! Satan was defeated! Hallelujah!

Christ Jesus, whose NAME is ABOVE every other NAME, showed forth before our eyes, that nothing is impossible to them who believe upon HIM!
Amen!

"Honour and Majesty are before Him; Strength and Beauty are in His Sanctuary."
Psalm 96:6 NKJV



The Lord Jesus has been so gracious to me, and many giftings of Healings have taken place before my eyes.

I was ministering in the prayer line, and a cross-eyed girl stood before me.
I placed my hands on her eyes and, as I did, I noticed she had a calcified lump on her chest the size of a cricket ball, like a pigeon's egg.

As I started to pray, I knew the anointing was not going through my hands, but something was taking place on another part of her body.

I opened my eyes and saw this large ball go - disappear, as the anointing flowed through my hands, and her eyes were completely uncrossed!
Isn't God truly wonderful!



841. O LORD,YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL

O LORD, YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL.
LORD, YOU ARE GLORIOUS,
WONDROUS,EXALTED.
O LORD, WITH ALL OF MY HEART,
I COME TO YOU.
O JESUS, YOU'RE WONDERFUL,
BEAUTIFUL AND GLORIOUS.
O JESUS, MY SAVIOUR, I LOVE YOU.


"In the beginning was the Word, And the Word was with God, And the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, And without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men."
John 1:1-4 NKJV



'Pastor Lorraine,
How can I testify to others what God has done for me!'
This lovely girl who had been deformed from birth, came to 'Hosanna.'

The doctors had tried to straighten her legs by breaking bones and inserting steel in ONE LEG.
She was born with curved legs and was unable to walk upright!

The Lord Jesus had miraculously healed her.
The one leg that was bowed had been straightened!
Her feet that were turned completely in, had been straightened out!
Her pelvic bones and her spine had been straightened!
Here she was - a living, walking testimony to God's glory!

The only thing that hindered her testifying completely WAS the leg that had the steel in it.
When the bowed leg, without steel, was straightened, it was approximately 2.1/2" longer than the other one with the steel in it.

This caused her to walk on her toes to be balanced.
I looked at her and the Lord's compassion moved in my heart.
'O Lord,' I prayed, 'You can lengthen bone - all I can do is pray that you will lengthen steel.'
I prayed and her leg was completely level with the other.
She looked at me.'I knew God could do it!' she said.

She stood up and walked with both feet touching the ground, BALANCED PERFECTLY!
Praise the Lord!



704. AT THY WORD

AT THY WORD, O LORD,
THE HEAVENS WERE CREATED.
AT THY WORD, O LORD,
THE EARTH WAS FORMED.
AT THY WORD, O LORD, THE SPIRIT OF GOD
HOVERED OVER THE WATERS.

AT THY WORD, O LORD,
THE LIVING LIGHT CAME,
THE LIVING WORD, JESUS CHRIST,
MY SAVIOUR,
TO DIE FOR ME AT CALVARY
AND FREE ME FROM SIN.

I'M FORGIVEN BY YOUR BLOOD.
MY SIN'S FORGIVEN,
TRANSGRESSION'S GONE
AT THY WORD, O LORD,
I NOW AM BLAMELESS.

AT THY WORD, O LORD,
I REIGN WITH YOU.
AT THY WORD, O LORD,
I AM A SON OF GOD.
AT THY WORD, O LORD,
AT THY WORD.


"For I am the Lord, I do not change."
Malachi 3:6a NKJV


I only write these testimonies for all the glory to be upon Him, our Lord Jesus Christ, Who is able to do abundantly beyond all that we think or know or see!

I was visiting a home and, as I arrived, some men were cleaning an industrial, cement truck.
I was having a cup of coffee, when there was shouting and screams.
I ran outside, as they carried in a man whose foot had been sucked into a pump with such pressure, something like 1,000 lbs per square inch.
The foot dangled and the man was in such shock and pain.They laid him under the carport.
He was wearing running shoes, NOT boots.

As I touched the foot, it was like jelly - like pulp.

I lifted my heart up to God and prayed, 'Lead me, Lord Jesus, tell me sweet, Holy Spirit, what to do.'
The reply was instant, 'Don't take off the SHOE.'

Others who were gathered there with me were motionless.
It was as if God had His hand on them.
I gently placed my hand on the mangled foot and started to pray.
The others joined in, putting their hands on the man, and we agreed together, as ONE.

The visitation of the miraculous anointing descended upon us.
We heard the bones and the ligaments coming together!
Joy filled our hearts - we were as ONE, united to heaven, as the Holy Spirit moved the foot back into complete wholeness.
Once the foot had been like pulped jelly, and now it was firm.
We started to sing, and then the glory was lifted off the foot.
The man stood up - the foot was healed!

Christ Jesus had been revealed as the One who creates, heals and does wonders of the miraculous today, and He always has - yesterday, today and forever!
Amen!



698. YOU WILL NEVER CHANGE YOUR MIND

YOU WILL NEVER CHANGE YOUR MIND,
FOR LORD, HOW YOU LOVE US.
YOU WILL NEVER CHANGE YOUR MIND,
FOR YOU'VE FORGIVEN US OF OUR SIN.

THERE IS NO CONDEMNATION
TO THOSE WHO TRUST
IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.

THERE'S NO LONGER FEAR,
FOR PERFECT LOVE
HAS TAKEN OVER ALL OF OUR LIVES.

YOU WILL NEVER CHANGE YOUR MIND,
FOR JESUS, YOU KEEP US.
YOU WILL NEVER CHANGE YOUR MIND,
FOR WE ARE THE APPLE OF YOUR EYE.
(O YEAH)


"For in Him dwells all the Fullness of the Godhead bodily; And you are complete in Him, Who is the Head of all principality and power."
Colossians 2:9,10 NKJV


A young man had contracted shingles, and his family had been told the worst news - the shingles were attacking his eyesight! He would lose his sight and then they could attack his brain.
They 'phoned me that evening and I went to the home.
The young man sat in the chair.I didn't seem to have to ask him anything.

I knew in my heart that he had been put under a wrong doctrine.
I simply prayed for the mercy of God to be extended to him.
I then asked him to ask God for forgiveness.
He prayed and asked for forgiveness, and the anointing oil flowed from me.
I placed my hands upon him, bound the shingles and left.

He was completely healed!



786. BE COMPLETE IN ME

"BE COMPLETE IN ME,"
SAYS THE LORD TO YOU,
"I DIED FOR YOU, THAT YOU WOULD HAVE
THE FULLNESS OF THE FATHER."

"BE COMPLETE IN ME,
KNOW I DO LOVE YOU.
YOU ARE THE CHOOSING OF THE FATHER,
THROUGH ME."

"BE COMPLETE IN ME,
YES, BE COMPLETE IN ME.
AS JOINT HEIRS, BE COMPLETE IN ME,
FOR I GAVE MYSELF
AS A SACRIFICE FOR YOU,
THAT YOU WOULD BE COMPLETE,
COMPLETE IN ME."

"BE HEALED IN ME,"
SAYS THE LORD TO YOU,
"BY MY STRIPES YOU ARE HEALED,
BE FREED,
BE HEALED IN ME,
KNOW I DO LOVE YOU.
HAVE THE FULLNESS OF MY LIFE,
AND BE HEALED."



"And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, And showed me the great city, the Holy Jerusalem, Descending out of heaven from God, Having the Glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, Like a jasper stone, clear as crystal."
Revelation 21:10,11 NKJV



A family came to 'Hosanna' with a retarded child.

They did not come on a regular basis, but would come from time to time, because they were members of another Church.

The mother and father received healings, and testified to the greatness of God.

One Sunday, I was preaching in a 'Hosanna' Outreach Church, and they brought their son forward to receive healing for a gastric stomach.

As I laid my hands upon him, the Holy Spirit led me in Word of Knowledge ministry.
I prayed away the hindrances upon the brain cells, the swelling around the brain cells, and the chemical imbalance within the brain - then went on to pray for the gastric stomach.

The couple then 'phoned me, ecstatic - the child was normal!
They had taken him to the Flinders Medical Centre and the doctors were astonished at the difference!

He was taken out of the Special School and now attends a Primary School.
His whole life was changed!
Isn't God good!



824. BEHOLD THE LORD IS GLORIFIED

BEHOLD THE LORD IS GLORIFIED,
HE HAS APPEARED TO OUR JOY.
BEHOLD THE LORD, HIS NAME IS OURS,
ALL HIS ENEMIES ARE ASHAMED.

HIS VOICE IS HEARD. HEAR HIM.
HIS NAME IS HEARD. HEAR HIM.
HE HAS DECLARED, HEAR HIM,
HIS DAY OF JUDGEMENT HAS COME.

REJOICE, ALL YOU WHO DWELL
IN NEW JERUSALEM.
AND ALL WHO ARE GLAD,
REJOICE WITH JOY,
FOR THE DAY OF THE LORD HAS COME.


"Now I saw heaven opened, And behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, And in Righteousness He judges and makes war."
Revelation 19:11 NKJV



Cancer of the Lymph Glands

This was the prognosis upon a man called Ray.
He was approximately 50 years old, with a skeptical attitude to healing.
His wife had received so many healings, and now it was his turn.
He came to Jesus, undecided but, praise the Lord, God's wisdom is bigger than the wisdom of man!

After prayer, no cancer remained! Hallelujah!
God not only healed the cancer, but healed the wisdom of man!



850. FAITHFUL ARE YOU

FAITHFUL ARE YOU,
O LORD, TO YOUR WORD
EVERY WORD YOU WILL PERFORM TO US,
THE FAITHFUL AND THE TRUE;
FOR YOU DO NOT LIE,
YOU ARE THE LIVING WORD.

JOYOUS ARE YOU, O LORD, UNTO US,
THE CHOSEN, HOLY SEED OF CHRIST,
WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE;
FOR YOU DO NOT LIE,
YOU ARE THE LIVING WORD.

RULING WITH YOU,
WE'RE FAITHFUL AND TRUE,
HOLY, CHOSEN SONS OF GOD,
INHERITORS OF ALL THINGS;

REIGNING NOW IN JESUS CHRIST
OVER ALL THE WORLD;
FOR YOU DO NOT LIE,
YOU ARE THE LIVING WORD.

NO - YOU DO NOT LIE,
YOU ARE THE LIVING WORD.


"Now this I say, brethren, That flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; Nor does corruption inherit incorruption."
1 Corinthians 15:50 NKJV



This woman attended 'Hosanna.' She had held onto a Rhema Word from God that she would have a son.

Time was marching on, and her youngest child was 10 years old.
She had approached me to confirm that she would have this son, even though it looked impossible.

The Lord said, 'Yes, she would,' in answer to prayer, but flesh believed it must do something.
They couldn't wait.

They applied to adopt a son from overseas, trying to make the Rhema Word come to pass in the flesh action.
Then she conceived and had a daughter.

Then she had a son, according to the PROMISE GIVEN HER by Almighty God.
So many try to bring a vision or a Word to pass, by the action of the flesh.
Just trust God - Don't lean to your understanding.

God is faithful, even if you're not!



783. FLESH AND BLOOD SHALL NOT INHERIT

FLESH AND BLOOD
SHALL NOT INHERIT CHRIST,
NOR GOD'S KINGDOM,
ONLY THOSE WHO WEAR GOD'S NAME,
AND WALK IN LOVE.

FLESH AND BLOOD
SHALL NOT INHERIT CHRIST,
NOR GOD'S KINGDOM,
ONLY THOSE WHO LIVE
BY THE HOLY SPIRIT,
AND WALK IN LOVE.

YES, WE WHO WALK IN THE SPIRIT
AND LIVE IN LOVE,
WE CAN DECLARE THAT
WE ARE THE HOLY, CHOSEN OF GOD.



"For to this end we both labour and suffer reproach, Because we trust in the Living God, Who is the Saviour of all men, Especially of those who believe."
1 Timothy 4:10 NKJV


At a meeting, a child had boiling water tipped on her.

The little girl screamed as the water fell on her, scalding her chest, stomach and legs.
Her mother was wonderful, and started praying in the Spirit - no anxiousness.
She quietly brought the child to me, and we shut the door on all the hysterical, yelling people.

We then agreed together in prayer, taking authority over all the burns.

Instantly, the blisters retreated, the red burns disappeared and the child was completely healed!

NO SCARS AT ALL!
Praise the Lord!
'Be anxious for nothing!' is the command of Jesus.



779. I TRUST IN YOU, MY LIVING SAVIOUR

I TRUST IN YOU, MY LIVING SAVIOUR.
I TRUST IN YOU ALONE,
JESUS CHRIST, I TRUST YOU.

I TRUST IN YOU, MY HOLY BRIDEGROOM.
I TRUST IN YOU FOREVER,
JESUS CHRIST, I TRUST YOU.

I LEAN NOT TO MY UNDERSTANDING.
I TRUST MY WAY UNTO YOU,
FOR YOU ARE THE LIGHT
AND THE LAMP OF MY PATH.
I TRUST MY LIFE UNTO YOU.

I TRUSTYOU, JESUS CHRIST.



"The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, 'Behold!The Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world!' "
John 1:29 NKJV


How people would like to change Jesus, but He still confounds the wisdom of the wise.
He is Alive! The same yesterday, today and forever!

The Lord spoke to me to kiss the eyes of those with sight imperfections, and many received healings and miracles.
A mother returned to me and asked me to pray again for her son because, since I kissed and prayed for his eyes, his glasses hurt his eyes.

I explained to her that God had healed his eyes, and that he no longer needed them.
Instead of joy, a perplexed look appeared on her face.'Should I take him to the doctors to make sure he's healed?'

The Holy Spirit joyed with me, as I said, 'Do whatever you desire to do, but I know my God is well able to be faithful to all His promises which are, 'Yes' and 'Amen!'



893. LOOK AND SEE

LOOK AND SEE CHRIST JESUS,
THE SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD.
LOOK AND SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD
COMING DOWN TO EARTH.

BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD
THAT TAKES AWAY THE SIN
OF THE WORLD
JESUS, JESUS.

REPENT OF SIN AND TURN TO HIM
FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND.
ALL YOU WHO ARE THE CHOSEN OF GOD,
BOW BEFORE YOUR LORD.

BELIEVE AND RECEIVE HIM,
THE KING OF ALL THE WORLD
JESUS, JESUS.

THE KING OF THE WORLD
JESUS,JESUS,JESUS,JESUS.



" 'Do you not fear Me?' says the Lord.
'Will you not tremble at My presence, Who have placed the sand as the bound of the sea, By a perpetual decree, That it cannot pass beyond it?
And though its waves toss to and fro, Yet they cannot prevail; Though they roar, yet they cannot pass over it.' "
Jeremiah 5:22 NKJV


Overnight, this woman was completely twisted and unable to move.

Her body had gone into a spasm, and she was completely immobilized - unable even to turn her head.

She laid there, hardly able to speak, and looked so comical - her body stiffened, yet twisted.

I started to pray, taking authority over Satan.
I prayed up such a storm, but nothing happened.

Then the Holy Spirit prompted me with, 'Ask Me what to pray.'
I asked Him and He said, 'Say to her - Rise up and walk!'
I did, and she did! Hallelujah!



780. YOU, O LORD, ARE GREAT

YOU, O LORD, ARE GREAT,
YOU REIGN IN MAJESTY AND GLORY,
AND ALL WHO COME INTO YOUR PRESENCE
TREMBLE, TREMBLE.

AT THE POWER OF YOU,
HOLY SPIRIT.
AT THE POWER OF YOU,
THE WORD OF GOD
YES, ALL SHALL BOW AT THRONE OF GOD
AND WORSHIP YOU, LORD
WITH MAJESTY.



"Then they will see the Son of Man Coming in a cloud with Power and Great Glory.
Now when these things begin to happen, Look up and lift up your heads, Because your Redemption draws near."
Luke 21:27,28 NKJV



The Demonic

My husband and I were ministering in Tasmania.
Colin stood up to preach, and a woman started to pivot at an alarming rate.
She twirled out into the aisle, up to the back, around and around.
It was demonic - she was possessed.

Colin looked at me and said, 'Lorraine, take care of that.'

I went up to her, took authority over the DEMONIC power that had overtaken her.She gave a loud scream and fell to the floor.
With that, another woman stood up and started to bend backwards, until her head was a foot from her heels. Colin stopped.

I went and took authority over the unclean DEMONIC SPIRIT, and the woman collapsed on the floor.
No preaching had taken place, and I silently prayed and asked the Lord what was happening.
The Lord said that both the women were adulteresses, and the power of the Spirit of Truth was present, and the demons were unable to stay hidden from the Light of Christ.

These women were confronted with HOLINESS, and the unclean MANIFESTED, for the Holy Spirit's power was EVIDENCED, and yet not a word was preached!

'Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit!' said the Lord at the end of the meeting.

Both women then confessed to adultery with others in the congregation.

Praise God!
He exposes all the works of darkness!


842. LIFT UP YOUR EYES, SEE HIM

LIFT UP YOUR EYES, SEE HIM,
JESUS CHRIST, YOUR COMING KING.
LOOK UP AND SEE ALL HIS GLORY,
AS HE RULES THE HEAVENS ABOVE.

LOOK DOWN AND SEE ALL THE WORLD,
HUMBLED BEFORE HIM.
LIFT UP YOUR EYES AND BEHOLD,
BEHOLD YOUR COMING KING.

NO MORE DARKNESS,NO MORE GLOOM.
NO SORROW, TEARS OR PAIN.
AS YOU GIVE YOUR LIFE TO HIM,
CHRIST JESUS IS YOUR KING OF KINGS.



"But concerning brotherly love you have no need that I should write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another."
1 Thessalonians 4:9 NKJV



God teaches the BRETHREN to love one another.

I was called to a home where there was a father choking to death. His wife and small children attended 'Hosanna' He couldn't swallow or breathe.
There was a large swelling in his throat, and he couldn't even swallow his own saliva, as his throat was so closed over.

As I went to the home, I had prayed and asked the Lord to lead me.
Once inside, I knew this was a spiritual attack, as well as physical sickness.

The evidence of the spiritual attack was physical sickness.
Unforgiveness was the unconfessed sin.

I asked him to pray to the Lord and ask for forgiveness.
He did and then I prayed, and the large, white bubble in his throat burst, mucous was vomited up, and he was healed!

His hearing was also affected, and the Lord healed that too.

This man still does not testify and glorify Jesus, and is now separated from his family.

How sad it is when man fights God.


767. UNLESS ONE IS BORN

UNLESS ONE IS BORN
BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD,
UNLESS ONE IS BORN
BY THE BLOOD,
THEY SHALL NOT INHERIT
THE KINGDOM OF GOD
FOR IT'S ONLY THROUGH JESUS
THAT THEY CAN.

FOR HE IS THE WAY,
THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE,
HE IS THE FULLNESS OF GOD.
UNLESS ONE IS BORN OF THE BLOOD
AND THE SPIRIT,
THEY'RE NOT OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

FOR REPENTANCE COMES
TO THE HEART OF MAN
BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD.
SALVATION COMES
BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB,
THEY ARE CLEANSED BY GOD.


"That in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, To Whom belong the Glory and the Dominion forever and ever. Amen."
1 Peter 4:11b NKJV


A Swallowed Pin

As banners were being moved after our evening service at 'Hosanna' a young girl, Sue Fowler, accidentally sucked a dressmaking pin into her windpipe.

Pastor Lorraine was there, and immediately prayed that the pin would not lodge anywhere, so she would not cough or choke, and that it would be easily removed.

They went straight to Emergency to have it removed.
The x-ray scanner showed it upright, floating up and down as she breathed in and out, right in the centre of her windpipe.
It did not make her cough or choke, which would have been dangerous.This was a miracle!

The doctor placed a small tube into her windpipe - the magnetic tip drew the pin to itself, and it was removed.
She saw it take place, all without a local anaesthetic.'Remarkable!' said the doctor.

She came home rejoicing!

We thank our Lord for answered prayer. All we are to do is ask and believe!

"God be merciful to us and bless us, and cause His face to shine upon us; That Your Way may be known on earth, Your Salvation among all nations."
Psalm 67:1,2 NKJV


Deaf and Dumb Boy

At the Underdale College in 1986/87, a young boy of 10 years, from the northern country visited 'Hosanna' with his parents.
I noticed how timid he was, curling up close to his father.
At the end of the service, Pastor Lorraine went up to him and started to pray.

You could see he was deaf and dumb.

She placed her fingers in his ears, and took authority in the Name of Jesus.
It was like a shock to his system - he clamped his hands over his ears, and had the look of dismay on hearing for the first time.

Pastor Lorraine kept speaking, 'Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,' and he gave a big smile and spoke for the first time in his life -

'J . E . S . U . S .'

You could see the sheer joy and delight on his face.
Isn't Jesus WONDERFUL!



858. GLADNESS OF YOUR FACE

GLADNESS OF YOUR FACE
SHINES DOWN ON ME.
FULLNESS OF YOUR GRACE
POURS DOWN ON ME.

O JESUS, HOW YOU LOVE ME
WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART.
O JESUS, HOW YOU LOVE ME.

MERCY OF YOUR HEART
IS TOWARDS ME.
COMPASSION OF YOUR GLORY
FLOWS OUT FROM ME.

O JESUS, HOW YOU LOVE ME
WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART.
O JESUS, HOW YOU LOVE ME.



"After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, 'Alleluia! Salvation and Glory and Honour and Power belong to the Lord our God!' "
Revelation 19:1 NKJV


My Miracle grand daughter, Katelind

My daughter, Corinne, had been married 11 years and had tried for 5 years to have a baby. She came to a 'Hosanna' Truly Blessed Women's Rally and received the fullness of God's blessings.

The Lord gave her the desires of her heart and, 10 months later, she gave birth to a 9 lb baby girl, born on 7th December 1993.

She had to have a caesarean birth and, upon a doctor's examination, was found to have a growth of fibroids, the size of a grapefruit, just inside the uterus, which had made it impossible to conceive and give birth naturally.

I praise God for my precious miracle grand daughter, Katelind.

At birth, a blood cell on her nose did not cease to provide blood, causing a blood blister or birthmark the size of a 5 cent piece to form on the left side, down to the tip of her nose.

Pastor Lorraine prayed and sealed off the blood supply that prevented its further growth.

One morning, the Lord gave me a dream and showed me that, one day, I would be walking with Katelind in the garden.
Katelind would simply fall over and bump her nose, causing all the excess blood to squirt out.

A few days later, this is exactly what happened, and now it is completely healed!

I praise my God for His faithfulness, always!

"And these signs will follow those who believe:
In My Name they will cast out demons:
They will speak with new tongues:
They will take up serpents;
And if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them;
They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."
Mark 16:17,18 NKJV


On her way to the asylum

Pastor Lorraine arrived at the 'Hosanna' Daughters of Zion meeting at Kidman Park.
She shared with the ladies that a young woman, was being brought to the meeting for ministry.

She was the mother of two children, and was on her way to the asylum.
This was because she had tried to shoot her husband and children, and to throw herself down an old, open well.

When she arrived, she was helped in by her husband and father on either side of her.
She was bent over, like an old, old lady, and looked wrinkled and dark.
They sat by themselves against the wall, while we were standing and praising the Lord and singing in the Spirit.

Pastor Lorraine told us to keep praising.

Our praises became greater, louder and more angelic, as though a host of angels were singing.
As we praised, the shrieks, screams and yellings of the demonic started to leave her, as the woman was flung to the floor.

How God can do wondrous things as we praise and glorify Him!
Then Pastor Lorraine moved under the Holy Spirit's instructions and the woman was completely set free.

When she stood, she was upright, young, in her 30's and beautiful, flushed in the Spirit.
Pastor Lorraine said, 'Now you are free to go home. Be obedient unto God and praise the Lord.'

What a miracle to be given a new start, set free in Christ Jesus - Forgiven!

"We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty, The One Who is and Who was And Who is to come. Because You have taken Your great power and reigned."
Revelation 11:17 NKJV


It was late at night and I was in a Church Board Meeting, when called to the 'phone.
A Pastor from another Church asked me if I would go to the Lyell McEwin Hospital, to pray for a man who was hiccuping to death.

He had been like this for a considerable time, unable to eat or sleep, etc., because of the hiccuping, and he was becoming weaker and weaker.
I said I would pray about going, which I did.

The Lord said, 'Just go in and lightly punch him on the chest, and declare this sickness - Be Gone!'

I left the meeting and drove to the hospital at approximately 11:30pm.
I was alone and the whole of the hospital seemed to be in darkness.
The wind was blowing and it was raining, and I finally found a side door open.
I let myself in, and eventually a nurse came to me, and took me into a ward where this poor man was. He was a Christian.

He was sitting up just hiccuping - it seemed to come right from the bottom of his feet - right up - his whole body was in a state of extreme weakness.
He looked at me and couldn't even speak.

I marched over to him, and did exactly what the Holy Spirit had told me to do - I punched him lightly in the chest, and declared him healed, in the Name of Jesus.

Praise God! The hiccuping immediately ceased.

Those in the ward, who were awake, could not believe what had taken place before their eyes.
The man himself was so startled that the hiccuping had ceased. His look was of absolute bewilderment, that the hiccuping had IMMEDIATELY ceased.

He looked at me with such thankfulness.
He knew God had never let him fall from His hands.
He cares about us all who love Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.

Many months later, I was asked to minister in the Olive Grove Christian Centre, in Elizabeth, and this man, who was playing the trumpet, just beamed as I stood up to preach.

He came up to me so excitedly, after the service, with joy and thanksgiving to declare to me that he was the man who God had not forgotten. Amen!

"The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the Lord and against His Anointed."
Psalm 2:2 NKJV


One thing is for sure, that you cannot serve two masters - you will love one and hate the other.

I was ministering in an Anglican Church in South Australia. I had just finished the service, when a mother and father brought a young man, approximately 19 years old, into the Church.

This young man was born with a hereditary condition of the lungs, causing them to be calcified.
That morning, they were called to the hospital, because their son was close to dying.

They had heard about the ministry of praying in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, from the husband's sister, who had already received healing.
They carried the young man into the Church and placed him before the altar.

He was so ill and weak, and they sat him on a chair, and I anointed him with oil.
As I started to pray the prayer of faith, the father started to blaspheme me, calling me all sorts of names, but I continued praying.

The young man received the Lord Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour, and was immediately baptised in the Holy Spirit.
The anointing was so strong upon him, and the Lord Jesus Christ touched him, with all the glory of heaven, and he was healed.

God will not be mocked.We serve one Lord, and one Saviour, and one God.
There is no other Who is our Mediator between Almighty God and us who are His creation.
He cares for every one of us and He does not want one of us to perish.

All we have to do is to believe upon Him, Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, knowing Him to be the Son of God, and believing in our hearts that God raised Him from the dead, and we shall be saved.
You can only believe one master.

That day, Satan tried so hard to stop the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The master of the blasphemy wanted me to get angry, to be out of the Spirit, to stop the testimony that God had already arranged for that young man. Amen!
