One and a half year ago I attended a Healing School conference in Malmo here in Sweden, arranged by Global Awakening and New Wine Sweden. Randy Clark, Bill Johnson, Tom Jones and Will Hart were speaking in 26 different sessions about how to pray for the sick and seeing the Kingdom of Heaven manifest on earth. Many miracles happened during that conference, as can be seen in the video above that I made. For example, a guy named Magnus was damaged in a car accident 21 years earlier and got metal plates to stabilize the body, something that made it impossible for him to bow down entirely. He named and claimed his healing and bam – he could touch the floor.
With this wonderful conference in mind, I was excited when I attended the New Wine leader’s conference in Stockholm this week where Randy was the main speaker. It was the same message – healing does not belong to the church margins but is at the heart of the Kingdom – but he had some new wonderful testimonies that illustrated his points. For example, he showed us this powerful video about a woman getting healed from metal constraints, just like Magnus:
I like Randy. Even though I think his former mentor John Wimber (someone I keep comparing him with) had a slightly sounder theology at some points, I love his passion for Jesus, the Kingdom, and the spiritual gifts. His ministry, labeled by Wimber as apostolic, has changed the life of millions – including Heidi Baker. And God surely blesses his meetings through marvelous signs and wonders.
At the first night of the leader’s conference, a man started to shout joyfully and clap his hands. It turned out to be Pekka Liljeblom, a passionate Pentecostal evangelist – and a Facebook friend of mine. He got up on stage and explained that about 30 years ago, he got hurt in a boat accident and damaged his left eye. Since that day, he could only see ten centimeters with it. After receiving prayer at the conference however, his vision got restored with 90 %. He could now see to the other end of the room! I spoke with him two days later and his vision continued to improve.
More people got healed. A woman named Maritha had had a painful shoulder for nine months and could not move it freely, but as she woke up after the conference the pain was gone and she had free mobility. A young girl who had suffered from painful herniated discs in her back and neck for five years got healed. She had been taken drugs and could not bend forward, but after prayer the pain left her and amazed I watched her touch the ground. A man called Jeffy had not been able to see at far distances. After prayer he could read texts at the other side of the room. And again, a man got healed from constraints by a metal implant. He could not even feel the metal afterwards, as seen in the video below:
At the final day of the conference, Randy taught about impartation and the power of laying on of hands. After his message he invited everyone who wanted some impartation to come forward. One man on the first pew rose but was struck to the ground. Another man ran forward but it was like he was shot by an angel and he fell to the ground. More and more people came forward and many fell like bowling pins as Randy and the other in the ministry team blessed them. People shouted, cried, laughed, trembled, sang and worshipped. There were bodies everywhere. Like a battlefield. I saw dozens of people that looked like they had the encounter of their life, passionately crying out to God. The coffee break and even the next session were cancelled. We just continued to pray. Before long, a fire tunnel was created where we continued to pray for more spiritual baptism. The power was so strong. Really really strong.
A few hours later, Randy wrote on Facebook: “Tonight in Sweden we experienced an impartation service more amazing than anything we’ve seen in Europe in the last 20 years. Praise God!”
Amen, praise God.
