Jesus Painting from Hem of His Garment Conference at Bethel Church

Jesus' face has been painted many times through out history. This is my spin on the age old paintings. During the conference this last week I felt lead to try and paint it once again. I had the privilege of painting on stage Friday afternoon for the close of the conference. It turned out differently than planned but I think it was for the better. I used a technique I had never used before that I sort of stumbled upon with the Holy Spirit's help. I painted 'wet on wet' on raw canvas with pre-primed sections. Definitely fun ragging on most of the paint. I even messed up on His left eye and later realized the mark formed his iris. Pretty cool I thought. God healed many people this last week which was amazing to witness and be apart of, but I have to say one of my favorite parts was watching so many people get ridiculously drunk in the spirit and filled with joy (including myself). Yes, there is joy in his presence! May this painting impart joy to your life today knowing that you have been purchased for a price, your sins are covered by his blood, your health has been PAID FOR in full! God is so Good!

After I finished painting it people began asking me if I added gold sparkles because there was a sparkle in Jesus' eye that kept catching the light. I didn't use any metallic or gold paint, not even a paint with a sheen, just flat acrylic paint. More and more golden sparkles have begun showing up in different places over the canvas.

Healing Rooms Testimonies- July 10

Healing Rooms—July 10, 2010

Besides the healings recorded below, there were 26 reported cases of complete healing of pain and 21 of pain reduction. Twenty people left with peace and 20 with hope, and 15 felt freedom or relief. Fifteen received a prophetic word and 15 experienced the presence of God. Those numbers just indicate what the prayer servants reported. Much more happened during and after the prayer than we may ever know. Twelve were touched by God, six received the baptism in the Holy Spirit, several fell out under God’s power, and six had legs grow out. Nine forgave themselves or others, and a few received a new understanding of their identity or were reconnected to the Father.

Prayer Recipient Testimonies

Erico from Richmond

Erico is a professional athlete, and he sprained his ankle a week before a World Campionship tournament of jujitsu on his birthday, for which he had been training for months. The damage was in three spots and he had also damaged ligaments. The doctor said it would take six months to heal. It has been only a month. He can jump really high with no problem, which he demonstrated with ecstatic joy. He left with exuberant gratitude and a perfectly healed ankle.

Meg from Vancouver, BC

Meg had a right leg that was shorter and that had caused scoliosis. Her leg grew out. They prayed for her spine to relax. She said, “It sound’s so simple, but it is so amazing.” Last year she came here, and they prayed for her regarding SAD (seasonal affective disorder) which caused clinical depression for which she was on meds, and she experienced none this year. Her radiant face was the picture of joy!

Caleb from Washington

Caleb wanted prayer for complete breakthrough from fear. From the time Caleb was three when at his gradmother’s house he saw a dark figure walk from someone’s room and stare at him, he has been afraid of the dark. He would wake up at night, and still see the figure and scream. It was hard to sleep. In January, he said, “God that is not part of me. You did not give that to me.” He hasn’t seen that since. He has been seeing the Lord in his sleep now. He quit watching movies with darkness. He used to like those. After that, he went to a conference. He used to be too scared to step out. He prayed he could worship with the angels, and after one of the songs, he opened his eyes and was able to see angels. Ever since he got rid of darkness, he has been able to see light. As he was praying with someone today, the prayer servant spoke to little Caleb (Caleb when he was a child) to say it was not part of him. Caleb was able to see himself as a little kid with Jesus appearing in front of him, and he saw the thing of darkness come and stopped and couldn’t look at Jesus and went away. The prayer servant said, “Go back to where you came from.” Now Caleb (who is 16) knows he doesn’t have to use his humor to cover up the spirit of fear anymore. He will use it for Jesus. Before this time, someone prophesied that he would go into the world and speak to others using creativity. He said he had the mouth of a prophet to prophesy. Tomorrow night he and a friend are giving a word about light and darkness at his church.

Sheldon from Redding

Up to a week ago, Sheldon was lost. He is not sure what you call it, but God set an opportunity for him to do some home thinking time by himself. God ministered to him. He had had a panic attack for the first time in a while. He found a Bible and it started a whirlwind. He had visions of what he is supposed to be doing. The last week has been the most beautiful week he has had. God “ambushed” him unbelievably. He just talked to God all week. Everything has changed. He had neck and back problems for which he just received prayer, and right now he says he “feels like a million dollars.” Also his leg grew out to match the other. God gave him a vision and changed his whole direction. He has had His presence before but not like this. He was really down and gave himself completely to God. Every day is a new experience.

Michelle from Wisconsin

Michelle came for prayer for the beginning of rheumatoid arthritis. When the prayer servant prayed for her broken heart, Michelle saw a picture of the tin man from the Wizard of Oz. She saw a picture of an oil can opening that turned into an IV drip that kept dripping through her body. Michelle was lying on the floor experiencing that, and it was a delightful feeling. Her joints, neck were stuck. She feels very “oozy and warm and wonderful.”

Ellen from Texas

Ellen had some problems with the right side of her body. The prayer servant said there might be something in her church that is not in complete alignment and unity, and that rang a bell. There are, in fact, problems in her church that are concerning her. They prayed for her finger that was numb. Her foot was painful when bent back and now it’s 80% better. She couldn’t put pressure on the palm of her hand. She is feeling better. Her hand can stand pressure now, and her finger is no longer numb.

Tom from Texas

They prayed for Tom’s tinnitis, and he is hearing more clearly. It’s still there a little, but he hears better. He has emphasema, but he is breathing more easily. It started today when he took communion with his wife; he began then to breathe more easily. He has a real peace right now.

Jennifer from Oregon

When she came in, she had severe knee pain. She had a baker’s cyst behind her knee the size of a golf ball and a torn meniscus in her left knee. Every time she stood up or sat down, she had horrible pain. It’s 80% better. She can get up without pain. The cyst is smaller, and she doesn’t even know if it’s there. She had a brain tumor, so she received prayer for her brain, too. Her shoulder is better, too (torn rotator cuff) even though she didn’t receive prayer for it.

Liberty from Washington

She had very bad eyesight. Now she can see at least 50% better. She couldn’t read an exit sign five feet away. Now she can.

Larry from Washington

He had a hip injury from an accident. He was running in the rain and went over a cattle gate and it came off the hinges and his left leg went underneathe and he fell back on it and injured his hip. He received prayer for it elsewhere six months ago, and he had a lot more mobility, but the pain shifted into his lower back, and that pain is gone today. He couldn’t even lift his leg up to get in the car on the passenger side. He can lift his leg now.

Dean from Washington

His hearing is better. He is having a progressive healing.

Randall from Washington

Randall was in the Encounter Room cross-legged on the floor for a half hour. He got up without numbness, which he would normally have had after that, as he says, “at his age.” The stiffness in his neck and shoulder from an injury he had last fall is gone after prayer. The “crunching” sound inside his neck is gone.

Ron from Washington

Ron couldn’t get to the chiropractor on Tuesday. Wednesday the chiropractor said it would be a miracle if he could drive to Redding the 10-hour drive from Tacoma. He made it down with a lot of pain in his back. He could barely get up before, but demonstrated that he could now easily stand up after prayer. His back was out all the time. It went out Saturday. He got stuck in his car one day. His chiropractor is a believer who has only seen one miracle. It will be fun for the chiropractoer to hear his testimony.

Natalie from Sacramento

Natalie came for prayer for MS, weakness in her hands, and lower back pain. Right now her hands feel good; there is no weakness, and her back is not tight anymore.

Nela from Red Bluff

Nela said she was really blessed and felt His presence and felt unforgiveness toward herself lifted off and had peace.

Ray from Oregon

Ray has been dealing with depression since he got his cancer diagnosis. They want him to do chemo and other things. He came expecting God to touch him and his wife. He asked God in the Encounter Room for a fleece about whether to do chemo. God showed him his walk needs to be more righteous. He gave him three areas to work on. He felt like the Lord said that he would not need chemo. When the prayer servant prayed for him, his energy level went through the roof. That was the fleece: that we would have energy.

Sharen from Anderson

Sharen battles pancreatic cancer. She has no more pain in the pancreas or back and believes she has no more cancer.

Carol from Cottonwood

Carol had constant pain in her back and legs (post polio syndrome) since 2007. The pain is gone.

Adriana from Redding

Adriana felt a difference in her back. The worry is gone. The Lord touched her back and the pain is gone.

She was healed of bipolar disorder two months ago. She stopped taking medicine two months ago. The Lord healed her, and she feels great. She lost 20 pounds in the first month after she stopped the meds because the medicine made her gain weight. She got sick when she was 16 and was hospitalized for a month. She moved to the US from Romania when she was 12. The Lord spoke to her today and said He cares and that she is not alone.

Joseph from Sacramento

Joseph had a herniated disc in his back, and he received prayer and his leg is hot right now. His back feels better. He is feeling really good.

Rita from Oregon

Rita’s wrists were healed. There is no more pain.

Wendy from Washington

Wendy feels light as a feather. Her tennis elbow is healed. She is a flight attendant, so that’s really important to her.

After prayer, she was feeling great and was beginning to embracy the baby. The prayer servance wrote that she had no bleeding since the last time (Testimony writer is not sure what “last time” means).

Alignment came into a man’s hands and shoulders as his hands and shoulders grew out. ??? [Note: the testimony writer did not understand what was meant by his “hands” and “shoulders” grew out.

Healing Rooms Experimental format in the Sanctuary

Healing Rooms June 26, 2010

This was a

n awesome time this last week, riding on the en

d of a kingdom conference, the Saturday Healing rooms were full of faith and as a result the Holy Spirit h

ad a hay day.

It was an experimental format, normally there

is a soaking "encounter" room where guests wors

hip and engage before their number is called to come into the prayer room where they are individually

prayed for. This last week, because there were so many people, everyone was in the sanctuary an

d instead of the guests getting shuffled around the prayer servants mingled and prayed while the guests worshiped. I

painted onstage then traveled around doing prophetic characters. The first time I ev

er tried it. It was a lot fun and affective. I love the way the Holy Spirit speaks to people. The painting I saw during th

e pre prayer time and is called "Into His Presence". It is symbolic of the corporate

encounter that we entered into as a group. It was painted on the back of the canvas so the stretcher bars gave it the three dimensional feel of a portal or

a window.

The presence of God was so strong on Saturday! Here are the healing testimonies...

Many felt better, were relieved of pain and left lighter and freer.

Prayer Recipient Testimonies

Dave from the UK

Dave has had problems with his right leg for some time. It was painful when he drove, and he has had a lot of tension and pain for twelve years. Sometimes muscles mask something deeper. It is probably covering up a problem with his knee. He feels some restoration is going on. The tension and tightness are gone, and he feels heat.

Gardenia from Turlock

Gardenia has been praying to see gemstones, and she found three this week, one at the altar.

John from Richmond, WA

God went deep and John said he received a real release in his spirit about being God’s and that He wanted and willed him. He received much in the way of identity.

Sadie from Encinitas

Sadie said she was released from addiction and the attending pinched nerve in her neck. She is full of joy.

Dave from Ohio

Dave wanted prayer to have discouragement broken off of him. Two prayed for him and declared freedom over him. He feels awesome now. He has been playing guitar since he was 12 loudly, and he has a hard time hearing sometimes in a room like this (the busy Healing Rooms). A lady who had just gotten healed of hearing loss prayed for him. His ear has been plugged up for three months, and now it’s better. He felt something was going on, and then it opened up.

Diana from Kentucky

For ten years, Diana had an autoimmune disease that would manifest with sores in her mouth. The Lord revealed that way down deep she had given the enemy access because she thought she was punishable. She had pain in her knees when she would bend. (She’s on her feet all day because she is a hairdresser.) They called out a word of knowledge. They said she was an intercessor and it was an attack on her intercession. She has no more pain in her knees.

Roy from Fresno

Roy wrote that after Joaquin called out a word of knowledge for neck healing, his back pain was relieved and pain and numbness left. His neck is also feeling better.

Alyssa from Tustin Ranch

She has dealt with bipolar disorder for about 8 years. She really wanted to be set free and asked God who should pray for her. She walked in the room, and God told her to go to the far back corner. She saw a girl there with black hair, and God told her to sit by her. She overheard someone behind her praying for the girl behind her who is also called Alyssa and prayed, “I pray for clarity and confusion and cloudiness and depression to be gone.”

So Alyssa from Tustin Ranch received what the lady prayed for the other Alyssa, who was dealing with ADD.

The team then prayed for her hormones and chromosomes . As she received prayer, Alyssa got a picture of her mind in chains and Jesus breaking off the chains.

Heather from the UK

She was really encouraged. She soaked and talked to God about things she didn’t realize she needed to talk to him about. Women prayed for her and prophesied over her, and it was helpful for her. She wants to change direction in her work. The team didn’t know that and said whatever she put her hands to would prosper.

Jack from CA

Jack had a neck injury, lower back pain, and a swollen gland in his neck. The pain in his neck and lower back has completely gone, and the gland in his neck has gone down to a normal size.

Cheryl from NZ

Cheryl wrote: “Some pain gone. Filled with joy.”

Dennis from NZ

Dennis requested prayer for post-medication trauma after treatment for hepatitis C infection. He wrote: “Pastor Gore prayed for the ‘shalom’ of God to touch the chaos in the cells of my body—a powerful description of my life for the last two years of pre-treatment and ___[?] I go in peace.”
