“A new light dawned in our souls. The church had diligently taught us that the days of miracles had passed; and believing this, eight members of the family had been permitted to die. But, now, with the light of truth flashing in our hearts, we saw that as a lie, no doubt invented by the devil and diligently heralded as truth by the church, thus robbing mankind of its rightful inheritance through the blood of Jesus…”
First an introduction to John G Lake:
John wrote this after praying with great frustration for his dying wife. He threw his Bible down of a coffee table and it opened to this:
“God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.” (Acts 10:38)
“Like a flash from the blue, these words pierced my heart: Oppressed of the devil! So, God was not the author of sickness! And the people whom Jesus healed had not been made sick by God!”
Then he “read the words of Jesus in Luke 13 16: “Ought not this woman . . . whom SATAN HATH B0UND, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond?” Once again Jesus attributed sickness to the devil.What a faith sprang up in my heart! What a flame of knowledge concerning the Word of God and the ministry of Jesus went over my soul! I saw as never before why Jesus healed the sick: He was doing the will of His Father; and in doing His father’s will, He was destroying the works of the devil. Hebrews 2 14.”
After John read the above Scripture, he and friends prayed with faith for his dying wife. She was miraculously healed as the power of God came upon her. She got up and said, “Praise God! I am healed!”
So began John G Lakes healing ministry. People heard of their story and flocked to have him pray for them too! God kept increasing his faith and the many strange unusual miracles. =)
I just read his public domain book I found online, Adventures in God by John G Lake. You can read it and download it HERE off my own website! (you can also have a robotic voiced man read it on youtube HERE)
If you are anything like me this book will captivate you right from the start and you won’t be able to stop until you are done. Consider sharing this with someone you think will be interested!
Who is hungry for more of God? Paul encourages us to earnestly desire spiritual gifts. Healing and miracles and miraculously speaking other languages are part of this gift. (You’ll be amazed at some of the miracles God does in John’s life!) We must be holy if we are to experience any of it however. You must repent of your sins! Receive God’s forgiveness and walk in purity. Being holy means to be ALL his! Wholly surrendered! The Holy Spirit takes care of the rest! Seek the Lord… before it is too late. (I have been often reminded of Jesus parable of the ten virgins!) The more you say no or not now, the more you say “yes” to the enemy. What will it be?
“Seek the LORD while you can find him.
Call on him now while he is near.
Let the wicked change their ways
and banish the very thought of doing wrong.
Let them turn to the LORD that he may have mercy on them.
Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously.” Isaiah 55:6-7 NLT
Enjoy this Message?
Amen. Awesome book. Everyone who has questions about God’s will on healing should read it. I’ve read most of John G. Lake’s stuff. He totally changed my view of healing several years ago. Another good book is from a contemporary of John G. Lake’s. F.F. Bosworth wrote a classic on healing titled, “Christ Our Healer.” Blessings.
