Hi, I’m Lindy Ann Hopley, founder of Beautiful Witness Ministries. Welcome to God Today. Today you are going to be so inspired with this testimony from death to life. A couple of years ago, I was in Amsterdam. I was on a preaching tour and my host said, “Hey, our friend, Anton, wants to pick you up in his Lexus ambassador car. It has massage seats and everything. For me and my assistant they thought it was appropriate. And I said, “Well, yeah, I guess we are ambassadors of the Kingdom of Heaven, so I’m all in.”
Next thing this businessman walks in 15 minutes early, and I don’t know who picks up a woman 15 minutes early. But anyway, so I’m standing there with a bun on my head. I have coffee in my hand and I’m like, “Hi, are you all right? You’re early.” And he’s kind of holding onto the wall. He’s standing there. And he goes, “I just wanted to know if you can pray for me before we leave for the church.” And in his eyes, I could see the seriousness of the moment. And I kind of just put my coffee down and I went, “What can I pray for?”
He said, “I have a hernia on my back.” And I put my hand on his back. The Lord showed me where and I said, “Is it here?” And I felt the fire of God come out of my hand. And suddenly he bends down with a key in his hand. He pulls up his pants leg, he’s kind of scratching his leg, and I go, “What are you doing?” And he said, “I have no feeling in my legs. But right now all the feeling has returned.” And I was like, “Wow, that’s a miracle.”
He said, “You don’t understand.” And he starts crying. He said, “My father used to abuse me sexually. And I hate myself. Doctors have given me five, six months to live. I’ve got 11% percent of my heart that is functioning.” His heartbeat was sky-high. He said, “Can you pray for that?” And I just put my hand on his chest. And I said, “In the Name of Jesus, I speak to the spirit of self-hatred. And I command you to come out and let go of him.”
And in that moment, this grown businessman who used to work with all the Steve Jobs, Bill Gates types of people of the world – he just burst into tears, melting at the feet of Jesus, born again. And the spirit came out and suddenly he looked at his watch. There was a heart monitor and his heart rate had dropped to zero and went back up to normal. And he’s like, “You don’t understand. You don’t understand. Actually, I can’t even walk. I have a wheelchair and I have all kinds of stuff to help me. I came in here by faith.”
And this man just got a total overhaul from Jesus. He went from a death sentence to life. He took us to church. He was carrying our bags. He’s like, “You don’t understand. I can’t do any of this.” We walked into the church and a prophet came up to me. He’s like, “I see you singing over businessmen and them being completely healed.” And that had just happened.
We went up on the stage. He kept sitting in the worship because now he’s joined us. He wasn’t actually able to do that. He’s now sitting there looking at his watch. He’s like, “You don’t understand. You don’t understand.” And he’s walking up and down, walking up and down. And finally, we actually had him come up onto the stage and share his testimony.
That afternoon, he offered to take us both for lunch. He said, “Do you think I should try to run?” And I was like, “Well, you look fine to me!” And off he went. Little did I know that his situation was really, really, really severe. He had an operation scheduled that next day. He had a big car magazine of Europe coming to his house on Wednesday to come and take all these cars away. He said, “The only thing I’m putting up for sale is my wheelchair. I’m giving none of my cars away. I’m healed.” He went to the doctor and his operation was canceled. The doctor wrote down, “This is medically impossible.” And he’s still alive today.
That was a couple of years ago. That is just phenomenal. He used to only be able to sleep an hour a night. He was instantly healed. He used to only be able to sleep an hour a night and now he was sleeping through the night. He said, “I might have to come back for prayer. I’m sleeping so much now.”
God just took someone who had a death sentence over their life of a couple of months left to live to have a brand new life. He made all things new. He got a brand new heart. They proved it on a scan, a medically proven miracle. His hernia was healed. His sleep apnea was healed. Everything was healed.
And want to pray right now if you’re watching this and you need a miracle in your body. Maybe someone has spoken death over you. Maybe you’ve experienced trauma as a child, and you’re still struggling with the side effects of that. Just put your hand on your heart right now. Father, I thank You, Lord, that there is no distance in the Spirit. And right now in Jesus’ name, I speak to any spirit of trauma, the spirit of hatred, self-hatred, unforgiveness, bitterness, anything that might be holding them back from the fullness in Jesus’ name. I command you to loose them and I release healing – body, soul, and spirit from death to life in Jesus’ name. I hope you were blessed. I’d love to hear from you if you’ve been healed. This is your day of your miracle. Amen? God bless you.
