Even though a heavy rain was pouring down the areas of Jakarta, many people who had the desire to see God’s miracle enthusiastically came to KPPI (Praise and Divine Healing Service) that was held on Thursday, October 12, 2017, in Adventist Building, Tebet, Pancoran, South Jakarta.
They packed up the first floor of the Auditorium. All were joyfully praising the Lord led by Rev. Yudi Sinambela. Even though some of them sitting on the wheelchair and came with heavy burden, their faith had brought them come there and sought the Lord.
Then Rev. Lidya Emy asked the congregations to read loudly the verses:
40 Now a leper came to Him, imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.” 41 Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.” 42 As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed.
A healing testimony film was aired. It was about a teenage boy, Ferdi, who was miraculously healed from buzzing right ear that caused him difficult to hear clearly. But after he was prayed in KPPI his sickness was gone. He could hear clearly and normally.
Another film of healing testimony was presented. It was about a child who was diagnosed to suffer from hydrocephalus since he was in his mother’s womb. His medical test showed that a surgery had to be conducted for his case. But the mother decided not to do it, instead she chose to have faith and brought him to KPPI. Horas was prayed in KPPI since he was six months old. Her mother regularly brought him to be prayed in KPPI from the year 2008 until 2013. Her persistence and dilligence was not in vain. All the symptoms of his illness didn’t happen. He grew up normally just like the other kids, even his head didn’t get bigger and became in normally size.
When the result of the CT Scan test in his age of 8 years old was compared to the result of the CT Scan in his age of 6 months old, the doctor said that a miracle had already happened. The liquid in the brain didn’t increase as it should had been but it had become decreased. On the other way around the brain had developed. God has worked miraculously. Horas Harahap is now already 9 years old and has come with his mother during the service. He is now studying just like any other boys, with no disturbance in his growth. There is nothing impossible to God!
The Word of God was shared by Rev. Yohanes Nugroho, taken from Matthew 7:7-11
7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
Our God is a good Father. There is no evil in Him. He is holy. There is only goodness in Him. He never did any bad thing.
All sufferings that we face are not from the Lord, but they are caused by our sins and mistakes. But here is the good news. A good God is in the midst of us. God wants us to ask and He will give. Our part is asking. All of us are able to ask, even though we are in a sick condition, we are able to ask.
He provides what we desire, like peace and healing. Ask, seek and you will find it. Knock and it will be opened. God can do it. Everyone who listen to the Word of God has the right to ask Our Father.
God will give whatever good to us as long as we ask with faith and believe. Even though we have been sick for years God is able to heal us. Is there anything impossible that God cannot do? Isn’t He the One who has created something form nothingness?
For everyone who ask, God will see him just the same and never sees him as a sinner or wicked person. Every one has no difference. If we have heard this truth of the Word of God then we will have the right to ask.
If the evil man knows to give the good things to his children, how much more our Father who is very good. He has given His only Son. He is a good God. Every good thing comes from Him as long as we ask with faith then nothing is impossible with Him. Even though we have been sick for years and cannot be cured, God is able to do miracle things. Whatever sadness that we feel, hurt feeling, sicknesses, He understands, even before we ask Him.
Then everyone was led to receive Lord Jesus as their personal Lord and Saviour. They who raise their hands prayed and received Lord Jesus as their personal Lord and Saviour.
The Word of God was continued by Rev. Joseph Batubara, taken from Mark 10:46-52
46 Now they came to Jericho. As He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timotheus, sat by the road begging. 47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” 48 Then many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” 49 So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called. Then they called the blind man, saying to him, “Be of good cheer. Rise, He is calling you.” 50 And throwing aside his garment, he rose and came to Jesus. 51 So Jesus answered and said to him, “What do you want Me to do for you?” The blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, that I may receive my sight.” 52 Then Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road
It is about a blind and poor beggar, Bartimaeus, who was shouting loudly to call the name of Jesus when Jesus visited his town. For how long have we been crying to God? God is a God who value highly our faith. Do not ever give up or stop putting your hope in God. Keep on believing, even crying out more and more to God.
Just like Bartimaeus who threw out his garment, so that he could follow Jesus. All the congregations were asked to seek the Lord more full heartedly. Because God is able, nothing is impossible with God. What do we want that God will do for us? Bartimaeus knew what he needed the most, What do we need the most tonight? Whether healing or restoration, our Lord Jesus is able to give it. Because nothing is impossible with God.
All the sick people were called to come forward to be prayed.
A healing prayer were led by Rev. Joseph Batubara, Rev. Yohanes Nugroho, and Rev. Judah Pakasi.
All counselors were called to come forward and then all the sick people were called forward. Then the counselors prayed for every sick person. Every one was asked to believe that God was able to heal them.
God worked and many miracles took place. Many sicknesses were healed, such as : a lump, asthma for years, heart sickness, vertigo for years, knee pain, migraine, cervix cancer for years. God made amazing things to His people. The joy of sharing the healing testimonies were shared by Rev. Lena Yong, Rev. Lenny Maria and Rev. Bulani Fairy.
Continued by Rev. Philipus Suwandi who gave a call to every one who desired to be used by God. They who raised up their hands were asked to move forward to be prayed.
The service was ended with a message that every one should go back to their own church and become a blessing there.
