Healing and Deliverance in Mexico
Dawn and I finished our five month stay in the great country of Mexico and have now returned to the United States. It was a wonderful mission trip and God did a great work. On our final night, a team of us including our friends from Heart4Cabo went to Miraflores for an outdoor preaching, healing, and deliverance meeting.
Miraflores is a beautiful area, but severely oppressed and poverty stricken. The unfavorable conditions are shocking. The event was to be held in the Town Square, but the heavy rain forced us to move to another location that had a large tent canopy.
During the ministry time, we prayed for a woman in her forties. As soon as I began to pray, she began to weep violently. Then all of a sudden she yelled and coughed as if she was being strangled. I quickly realized the Holy Spirit was removing evil spirits from inside of her. The woman’s body began to contort, and then she began to vomit. The Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit delivered this woman free from a spirit of witchcraft, divination, and death. After she received her freedom she said, “I feel so light, I feel like I could fly.”
The Bible says that Jesus came to set captives free. (See Acts 10:38, Luke 4:18-19.) All followers of Jesus have a mandate to “deliver those who are drawn toward death, and hold back those stumbling to the slaughter” (Proverbs 24:11). There are hurting people everywhere. I encourage you to let the Lord use you powerfully.
What's Really Going On?By Dawn R. Pietsch
What’s going on in the world is really not what’s going on in the spiritual realm. When we look at the world thru the media’s view, it’s all over! However, that is only man's opinions and facts, but not the real truth!
We have an adversary, the devil, whose agenda is to steal, kill, and destroy! (See John 10:10.) He is master at bringing deceptions, and a deluding influence, which if possible can deceive even the elect. (See Matthew 24:24.)
We have the Bible as a standard. We should be looking to Jesus for the answers, not the media. Jesus is the way, truth, and life. No one comes to the Father, except by Jesus. (See John 14:6.) So keep your eyes on Jesus and He will show you the way!
