We were visiting a smaller, outlying church where we gave words of knowledge. I experimented with adding a number to it for the first time and it was accurate! The number was seven and the word was for pain in a specific finger! I was so encouraged but that was only the beginning!
When ministry time came I had no interpreter, so I just started praying for people. I couldn’t interview anyone to see if they were healed! I decided to trust that Holy Spirit knew what the people needed whether I did or not. I started laughing at the devil as I prayed, and people were falling out in the Spirit all around me.
Today we went to a street in Medellin, Columbia where there were about 25 homeless crack addicts. They were like the walking dead. All were high and some people were sleeping, most were dirty and unkempt. I have never seen such a sad and pathetic condition of human beings. Interesting enough we talked to many of them (except for the one passed out). We asked them if they wanted prayer for any physical ailment.
During the evening service a lady about 20 years old was dealing with an addiction that she did not want to name. I asked if she had claimed Jesus as her Lord and Savior and she said,” Yes.” I explained to her that Jesus knew what the addiction was and that He had all authority on heaven and earth.
I gave a word of knowledge: a woman’s right breast with burning or pain and a young woman came up for it. The translator had not actually said right breast he said pain in breasts so it was great that she had exactly what I saw, the right breast with burning. She also had family issues, a very critical mother. She had some breast surgery. The burning had come on and off for a few years. I felt that the emotional side was probably related so we did that first. I gave her scriptures that came to mind - Jeremiah, where God said I will make you a wall - people’s words like arrows would hit the wall and fall without penetrating - and also in Exodus where God came like a wall of fire to protect the Jews from the Egyptian army while they waited for the waters to part.
