I will hold the 27th June 2019 as one of the most significant days of my life.
In the last 6 months I have been fortunate enough to find the teachings of Derek Prince via uploaded youtube sermons. I find it heartening that we live in an age where transformative sermons and teachings are available for anybody to view at any time.
On the evening of the 26th June I met with the parish vicar, having shared with him an overview of my spiritual life of the past 15 years and the journey from being an atheist to a follower of Christ.
It was a great meeting: one man who, from the youngest age, knew he was of God and what his purpose in life was; the other who had been duped into the darkness but through God’s grace has been offered redemption. Both coming together to share their faith and their difficulties.
As the evening progressed I developed a bad taste in my mouth and on the morning of 27th June, I woke with the return of my recurrent gut issues.
I had a work meeting about an hour away that morning and for the journey I had selected a Derek Prince lecture on deliverance to listen to. During the return journey I reached the end of the lecture which featured a very powerful prayer.
I chose to partake in the prayer and the most disturbing but incredible thing happened.
As I repeated the words, it felt like they carried an authority I’ve never felt before. I spoke with such force, following Derek’s lead.
Then it happened.
A shrill scream erupted from deep within and it went on and on and on and on. It was a hideous sound. Truly disturbing. Almost inhuman.
The fact that this all happened spontaneously and in a place where I was able to abandon myself to the process meant that this thing (or these things) were able to be properly expelled.
I feel great. Exhausted, but great. I’m free. At last, I am free and can start living. I can start serving Jesus Christ.
I’ve linked to the first part of the lecture series that led to this startling but amazing experience. It’s important to watch them in order and really give your undivided attention to everything Derek says: it’s all scripture based.
