For They Heard Them Speaking in Tongues & Praising God Acts 10:46 [Missionary experience, bk]
Bk: From The Field: 365 Missionary Stories to Encourage Your Daily Walk p125 | 2002 | Dr Leland Edwards

Posted on 08/08/2010 4:45:32 PM PDT by Quix

FOR THEY HEARD THEM SPEAKING IN TONGUES AND PRAISING GOD!
ACTS 10:46

The train from Colon, Panama, brought several passengers to the village of Frijoles one Sunday morning. Many had heard of the miracles of God in this church and came for physical healing. One was an elderly woman known as Mama Mecha.

That morning Mama Mecha received Jesus as her Savior. After the service, the congregation went to the inlet of Gatun Lake, which is a short distance from the church, to baptize the new converts. Her testimony of her conversion that morning stirred many hearts.

As Mama Mecha came up out of the water, she lifted her hands in praise to the Lord, and suddenly she began to speak in another tongue. Standing in the crowd was a man from Spain. He had been an archeologist in Egypt for several years and also served as a Roman Catholic priest in Spain and Panama.

Late that afternoon, while on the train returning to Panama City, he said to missionary Arthur Edwards, "After her baptism, that elderly woman spoke in an ancient* Egyptian language and quoted a psalm of praise from the Old Testament. There is no way she could even speak one word of that language which I learned in my work as an archeologist in Egypt. That had to be God."

Dr Leland Edwards
Former Missionary to Panama
Missions Director, 1965-1988

Lord, I think you for giving me a prayer language. Let me use my gift to glorify you. . .

PRAISE GOD FOR HIS FAITHFULNESS.

This parallels the experiences a close friend of mine had on a tour of Pacific Northwest Native American tribes one year.

THANKFULLY, those with an authentic experience have no need to be the least bit bothered by folks who have only shallow, empty, unBiblical, human arguments.

I’ve had better weeks! LOL.

Probably going to drive to Cottonwood South of Sedona to see my blood dad next week. Should be good to get out of town before the new semester begins.

I forget what region you’re in.

Watch that wood chopping . . . one of those things best done withOUT any alcohol! LOL.

What else have you been up to this summer?

Are you all set for things to fall further apart?

How’s the family?

Health?

Pets?

What insights do you have on life, God, the condition of the Nation and planet and the American way this Sunday?

Jesus said to her;
"Iam the resurrection and the life.
He who believes in me will live. . ."
JOHN 11:23-26

Maria, a Bible school student in Papua New Guinea, received word her mother had died. As she journeyed to her village, she talked to her Heavenly Father. "God, I don't understand, I know that she is with you now, but my mother was young and what about my little sister?"

The Lord said to her, "Maria, I am going to raise your mother from the dead."

Maria responded, "Yes, I know you are coming for Your own."

When she arrived home, the scene was typical: woman had covered their bodies with mud and some had cut off the tips of their fingers, letting blood drip on their bodies to show the spirits they were sorry.

Maria told the villagers that she wanted to pray for her mother.

"You are a bit late," they mocked her, but they showed her the hut where her mother lay.

Maria prayed, "God, please show my people they do not need to mourn." Suddenly she realized that she no longer heard wailing. She ran out of the hut to see her mother standing in the middle of the village.

"I have been somewhere so beautiful, with beautiful streets and houses!" she said. "Someone touched me and said, 'That is your house. You may enter, but if you do, you must stay.'"

"I have a three-year-old daughter," she replied, "I need to go and take care of her." And with that, she awoke, to the amazement and great joy of her family and village!

Mason and Virgene Hughes
Former Missionaries to Papua New Guinea

Thank you, Father, for your resurrection power! Help me to believe you for great things in all the circumstances of my life...

It doesn't say how long she had to travel to get back to her village. Given transportation in that region, probably hours.

ibid p 188:

"I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it."
MATTHEW 16:18

In Sri Lanka tourism and trade are mainstays of their economy. But tourism has been negatively impacted by civil unrest and there continues to be a mass exodus of professionals and local business people to other nations.

The ethnic war that began in the mid-1980's continues to bring bloodshed as the opposition political party is still on the warpath, trying to topple the government. Public demonstrations and violence are common, and the security and political climate of the nation is very volatile.

Recently a militant Hindu group attacked the homes of Foursquare believers and drove them to shelter in a little village church. Many of our pastors have been threatened. But all of this is only half of the story.

Foursquare ministers in the north central province conducted a series of revival meetings in a small village. A Buddhist man who was totally deaf began to hear for the first time. The following day he brought his twelve-year-old son who could not speak. He was miraculously cured and spoke clearly. More than 30 people gave their hearts to the Lord.

In the first six months of the year 2001, the national church grew from 515 to 725 house churches. One leader said, "In the midst of the turmoil, war, bloodshed, economic distress, and political upheaval, the Church is alive and well."

Eloise Clarno
Former Missionary to Sri Lanka

Thank you, Lord, that you are building your church in Sri Lanka and around the world and that the gates of hell will not overcome it. I pray now for churches and nations that are on my heart today . . .

I’m convinced we’ll see it.

I believe it will come in the midst of great suffering, however.

It seems that only then will a significant percentage of folks in America let go of the ‘good life’ enough to truly SEEK GOD WHOLEHEARTEDLY.

Maybe they won't be letting go of anything. Maybe the 'good life' is about to be stripped from us all.

Yes, indeed.

Yesterday during conversation, I mentioned I was praying for the Rapture...to which I was told..."Oh no! Don't pray for THAT!! I want to LIVE!!"

I shook my head and thought of the ping regarding those who'd rather live in this world...Hell and all!!

Oh dear!! Hopefully she will consider what the Rapture really means!

I noticed that, too.

I was really hoping for more spiritual response from that, but I guess it goes to show the stupifying power of our lifestyle and possessions.

I think it would help more if every 9/11 they replayed the ENTIRE thing as it happened, instead of clips and commentary about it.

I cried unto you, and you have healed me.
PSALM 30:2
[replaced KJV thee's/thou's]

As God's people take Him at His Word, and boldly confess their faith and ask Him publicly for healings and miracles, God hears their prayers and grants their requests, as former missionaries Edgar and Darlene Coombs testify:

"In August of 1978 a miracle occurred in our Foursquare church in Penonome, Panama. One of the Sunday School boys died on the operating table at one of our local hospitals. His grandmother had taken him there for the removal of a cast from a broken hand.

When the doctor saw the hand would remain deformed, he ordered an operation. A second anesthetic was ordered when the first one failed. Suddenly, the attending doctor and nurses realized the child had died from the overdose. The medic went into the waiting room to inform the grandmother of her loss.

Trembling, she stood to her feet and felt she should pray, but she felt ashamed to pray in front of the people crowding the waiting room. Finally, she just fell to her knees and threw up her hands and cried to God to resotre the child's life. She also asked God to heal his deformed hand.

Just then, the medic returned to tell her that her boy was alive again! She rushed up to him and begged him not to operate on the hand. The doctor then came out and told her to take the boy home because the operation wouldn't be necessary! The boy had been completely healed!

Edgar and Darlene Coombs
Former Missionaries to Panama

Father, give us the courage to boldly proclaim our faith and to reach out to others and pray for them in every situation. Help us to swallow our pride and to put aside doubts and fear . . .

But what about “speaking” with all caps???

Seriously, while you always have fakery and extremism, and the devil also even doing some miracles (Ex. 7:11,22; 8:7,18) we would not have the Bible and Christianity without real miracles. How did people know Moses and the Lord and the apostles were sent from God? Simply because they said were, and could not be wrong? Or because they had a lot of fits and dreams? And or because an unknown angel appeared to them, and contradicted what has prior been established as form God? Or because they abundantly manifested supernaturally power, personal purity and complimentary conformity with prior established revelation? (Acts 4:33; 17:2; 2Cor. 6:1-10; 12:12; Rm. 15:18,19) For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power. (1 Corinthians 4:20) Not that i am or think i am much of an example of that.

A pastor I know had prayed for someone to be raised from the dead once and she was. It really blew him away, because he said that he felt pretty silly praying for someone in a hospital who had been declared dead.

This guy I believe, because he was not one to be prone to sensationalism.

THIS

“life”

is about as close to “LIVING”

as

. . .

a fossilized flower is to a fresh honeysuckle . . . or less so.

Folks who have trouble letting go of this mortal pile of junk

may find that hauntings of such follow them all the way to their less than comfortable eternal abode.

For sure.

I think once things start really collapsing as OThuga is working so hard to kick off most brutally . . .

the chaos won’t relent very much until Armageddon is done.

There may be pockets of pseudo-normality here and there . . . however . . . I suspect that even those will be much worse than average now.

Me, too. The miracles of people having their eyes opened to the truth and being saved are remarkable. The Body of Christ is being completed before our very eyes. And we know that when the last member is saved, that's it. We're out of here and the tribulation, with God's wrath being poured out on the wickedness of men will be unlike anything witnessed before in human history.

I would add just one thing; the Apostle Paul's last days speak of apostacy, not revival.

"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy...having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away" (2 Tim. 3:1,2,5).

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine! But after their own lust shall they heap to themselves teachers having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth and shall be turned unto fables." (2 Tim. 4:3,4).

the god of this world is working overtime to snare those who refuse to see the truth. Spiritual discernment is critical now.

One of my speculations, hunches is

that there will be great suffering

then a great revival

and that just maybe

God will harvest folks at the peak of that great revival.

I do believe He is looking to harvest as many as He can.

Our sermon this morning was in large part about giving our all. Here's another example from the same book above about such--I think that, too is a factor in revival . . . p 195:

"But the King replied to Araunah, 'No, I insist on paying you for it. I will not sacrifice to the Lord my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing'."
2 SAMUEL 24:24

Armenia at the time of my visit had been free from communism for nine years. The country was hard-pressed to keep the infrastructure going. So it was quite a surprise to see a church that owned a former shoe factory in a small city in the country. The building was full on a weeknight and it was a time of incredible worship, even though it was in a different lanugage. The local television news crew was there as well as a few ex-KGB agents who asked a few questions after the service.

When I was alone with the pastor, I asked him about the church and how it functioned in a post-communist society. It was an interesting story of God's great grace and favor on a people willing to give everything they had to Him. When I asked how a struggling people could purchase a building like this and renovate part of it into a church, he shared an incredible story.

The story was a great testimony of God's power at work, but what really struck me and challenged me to the very core of my American brand of Christianity was when the pastor shared about how he had stood before the people and how he had told them of God's love, and how the property could be theirs, and how he had then asked them to bring their wedding bands and rings and present them to the Lord. When they were collected and sold, the moneyw as used to purchase the property.

How long has it been since my offering to God has really cost me?

. . . . another healing miracle . . .

.

"...Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace."
LUKE 8:48

Juanita, a sister from our church, called me one Sunday afternoon and asked me to come to her home and pray for her, as she was going to the hospital the next morning for surgery. The doctors had told her she had a large tumor in her stomach. We began to pray and all of a sudden she let out a little cry. I asked what was the matter and she said that it moved. She said it felt like she was pregnant and the baby had dropped into place.

The next morning, just before noon, one of her sons called and said, "Pastor, I think you had better come to the hospital and hear this for yourself!"

I went and was told by the doctor that he had never seen anything like this in all his life. They had opened her up and found a highly cancerous 22-pound tumor in her stomach cavity. It had thousands of roots going in every direction. "The amazing thing," said the doctor, "is that every root had been cut and all we did was reach in and take it out. Where the roots had been cut, every one of them looked like something cauterized them and they were all dead."

The doctors sewed her up, and sent her home where she lived another 17 years, never to face that sickness again! What amighty God we serve!

Dean Truett

Lord, you are the Great Physician. You touch our bodies and we receiving the healing we need. I pray for those who need your healing touch and your peace today...

JUST PERFECT!! Now that's a church that walks in the power and authority given to them. Healings are a part of Christianity and should not be the exception.

We are told to lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. It's as true as every other Scripture.

PRAISE GOD!

AMEN!

Matt 17:16-18 I brought him to your disciples, but they could not heal him."

And Jesus answered and said, "You unbelieving and perverted generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him here to Me."

Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of the boy, and he was healed from that moment.

There are several cases of such in the book I’m quoting from.

PRAISE GOD.

Folks really do not understand what they are asking for when they throw rocks at what is genuinely Holy Spirit’s doing.

There’s lots of counterfeit.

THERE’S ALSO THE AUTHENTIC AND GENUINE. AND GOD IS VERY JEALOUS ABOUT THAT!

I remember going to a healing service on a Wednesday night in the eighties. My mother and kin and a neighbor and myself went to this Charismatic service in the Church. Well the priest( He was a Traveling Healing priest) talked about why some are healed and not but the real reason its in Gods hands(explanation). So some will be healed and others maybe not. He also said he was in the office of Healing? ( or Quix help me = one of the 9 gifts of the spirit Its been a long time to know specific name). Then read those passages of faith in scripture.

Well he had everyone lined up at this round altar. I was right up there. He went to each person an talked(verses of scripture) to them and then lay ed his hands on each.

He came to this 9 year old girl who had cancer totally bald and sweating up top. So when you looked at her you could see a shine from the light(ceiling lamp) above on her head. The poor thing to experience this at that age. Well he put his hands on her head as he was taking them off peach hair fuzz was growing. I eventually could not see the light reflection on her head. Glory be to Jesus! I have never seen something up front like this since.

Then our neighbor who was in the medical books for one of the largest diseased spleen( or other organ in the abdomen not sure right now) with low blood count was standing there when the priest came put his hands on her. She eventually sensed a healing. She went to the doc to confirm like the healer told her. He flipped his wig. He had successive xrays done. The blood count was perfect and the organ went down a bit. She was suppose to die that year. She out lived her husband by 9 years.

I went to both rite of Christian Burials. Praise Jesus!
