Rosh HaShanah

Today is Rosh HaShanah. The day that marks the beginning of the Jewish New year.

As tradition goes in these first days the people of Israel are called to reflect on their lives, the good and the bad. On another day Yum Kippur, people fast and resolve to thank and praise God and return to follow him.

We are living in the prophecy that God promised the Jews would return to their own land. Where there had been desert land for 2000 years is now flourishing with cities, roads, railway networks and farms growing fruit and provisions. Children are once again playing in the streets and old people walking with canes. God is true to his promises.

I think it is a good idea to take time to remember how God has been faithful to me. I believe in God whom the Jews put their hope in, the creator of the heavens and the earth, and who gave his commandments to Moses. They are waiting for a Messiah.

Like Moses and Nehemiah I return to God and ask forgiveness for my sins and the sins of my forefathers so the next generations after me will be blessed. I am not an island. What I do will reflect on my children after me for good or bad.

Moses led the people of Israel out of 400 years of bondage in Egypt. Nehemiah led the people of Israel back to Jerusalem to restore the temple after seventy years in exile. He acknowledged before God that his forefathers had failed to obey God and they were sent into exile because of their disobedience.

I believe in Jesus the Messiah who came 2000 years ago. Through Jesus I have hope for the future and forgiveness for the past. I have a new beginning. The Shofar is blown on Rosh HaShanah a reminder that the people can have a new beginning.

If religion, work, family and friends have failed you there is still hope. His name is Jesus. Call on His name and follow him. He is the Hope of the world. Enjoy a new beginning. He will remember your failings no more. He will be with you and never leave you.

I think It is a good time to reflect on the past on your own and with your family. Resolve to obey God in the future. You can make a big change for good for blessing and not cursing.

Healing is the Children’s Bread

Jackie Mc Arthur has written a song called “Healing is the Children’s bread.”
Matthew 15 v 9. Jesus fed the five thousand from some loaves of bread and a few fish.

If you believe in Jesus you are a child of God. It’s God’s will that you receive healing because Jesus paid for it by shedding his Blood on the cross when he died. It is a free gift.

Brendan and I gave out EEC meat and butter many years ago. Crowds came to receive it. The government wanted it distributed to the people and we helped get it out. Like the crowds that Jesus fed, people came for the food.

Jesus is offering food to us that is s gift. If we eat it we will have healing and eternal life. If someone gives you a gift it would offend the giver if you didn’t receive the gift. Jesus offers us the free gift of healing. Believe and receive His healing. By the Stripes of Jesus you are healed. Don’t let unbelief, fear and doubt stop you from receiving.

Bread is a basic food. We need it to survive. Healing from Jesus is basic food for your soul and body. Jesus said He was the bread of life. If we come to him we will not hunger.

The Word of God is bread. If you take a little portion every day you will be fed, body soul and spirit. If a doctor prescribes medicine for you to take for a week to make you better you will believe him and take your medicine.

I recommend reading the scriptures every day. I try to read the scriptures daily . It was medicine to me for healing from cancer and continues to help me stay alive.

Do You Want to be Wise?

Finding Wisdom and Understanding

Job 28 v 25
But do people know where to find wisdom?
Where can they find understanding? It is hidden from the eyes of all humanity.
Even the sharp-eyed birds in the sky cannot discover it.’
God alone understands the way to wisdom;
he knows where it can be found,
for he looks throughout the whole earth
and sees everything under the heavens.
He decided how hard the winds should blow
and how much rain should fall.
He made the laws for the rain
and laid out a path for the lightning.
Then he saw wisdom and evaluated it.
He set it in place and examined it thoroughly.
And this is what he says to all humanity:
‘The fear of the Lord is true wisdom;
to forsake evil is real understanding.’”

Throat Cancer Healed

It was a beautiful warm morning. Brendan and I went for a drive to Newcastle Co Down on Sunday last. We stopped at Dundrum market along the way. I remembered many days bringing our children there, walking around the stall holders and stopping for a chat. We ended the morning with sausages and chips. It was good to be back. Corona virus closed down the market for two years.

I met a man later in the day called Gordon. Brendan told him I was healed of cancer twelve years ago. He responded to say he had cancer eleven years ago. I wanted to hear more.

He was in hospital for tests. The doctor told him he had third stage throat cancer. He had a tumour the size of a walnut. The doctors said it was too difficult to operate. When Gordon heard what the doctors said he didn’t panic. He began to consider his situation. He wasn’t ready to die. He wanted to live but the doctor’s forecast was grim.

Gordon had been a preacher of the gospel in his youth. In his work place he found young men would come to him for advice. He would always be there to listen to their troubles and encourage them over their difficulties . He would nudge them towards Jesus.

Now he was in trouble. In Psalm 91 God’s Word promises He will be with you in trouble. With long life will I satisfy you. God reached down to Gordon in his hour of distress.

In the next weeks the tumour grew to the size of an orange. The doctors decided to operate even though there was a risk of interfering with important arteries to the brain. They removed the tumour.

Gordon showed me a photo taken after the operation. There were two long lines of staples across the side of his neck like the photo below. I looked for the scars. His wounds had healed and were barely visible. He endured further treatments in hospital. He had the will to live. Eleven years on he is healed of cancer. Because Gordon helped others in their troubles God reached down and helped him in his trouble.

I thought of the scripture, By his stripes you are healed. Jesus shed his blood from his wounds so our wounds can be healed. If we believe in the great physician we will be healed.

Gordon continues to have a listening ear to young men. He doesn’t condemn but helps each one practically and perhaps says a quiet prayer for them. God is faithful. As we live for Him he cares for us.

God not only died to forgive our sins, he heals and restores our lives. He helps us to live again despite despair and hardship. There is no other God who is merciful. He is worthy to be praised. Amen.

Testimony of Healing in Israel

I would need to go back again to Israel as the first time there I was overwhelmed just walking where Jesus walked! You definitely read your Bible differently everything come to life, loved it!

I had a clot in my leg before I went which used to ‘pop’ and a fountain of blood went everywhere. Our pastor ( Myself along with Pastor David Hamilton originally from The Ulster Temple, now U.T. ),and other friends used to meet for prayer and witnessed the clot ‘popping’ one morning.While having my quiet time with the Lord at my prayer station ( kitchen table), the Lord told me I would be healed in Israel.


While swimming in the Sea of Galilee I noticed the covering I had on my leg were the clot was floating past me. I got out of the water to check my leg, and Hallelujah the little ‘hole’ where the blood’exploded’ was covered with a little layer of ‘silvery’ skin🙌🏻 Between crying, rejoicing,& praising our miracle working God who keeps His promises I was healed🙌🏻Sorry so long a story, but just want all who go to go expecting as you will not be the same when your pilgrimage is over, it’s life changing spirituality. Go expecting and receive all He has for you, you get that sense of the Lord smiling over us because we came and sowed into this beautiful land. God bless you all.🙌🏻🙏🏻

Testimony from Nancy Lee

Why Am I Healed of Fourth Stage Cancer

Dear Readers,


I was challenged yesterday when some one said to me “Many people are prayed for and they are not healed.” This fact is distressing and causes one to think, “Why bother praying when it does no good.” When one prays for healing and it doesn’t happen then one’s hopes are dashed. One feels like giving up.


My hopes were dashed many years ago when I had been praying over promises God had given me and it seemed God didn’t hear. I prayed for unity with my husband, unity with other believers, unity with my family, and over many other dreams I had. The more I prayed the more I felt alone and misunderstood instead of being accepted and included. I fell into depression. I didn’t care if I died. I gave up the fight to believe God in the face of despair. I developed fourth stage cancer.


Others prayed for me when they heard I had cancer. The people I felt in disunity with prayed for me, my husband, family and other believers. God heard the prayers of many and I am healed completely.


It was not because I was a good person, I am healed. I had many sins in my heart. I am healed to demonstrate the power of the name of Jesus and the power of Jesus Blood shed on the cross to save and to heal. It was brought about by the believing prayers of others in the Body of Christ. God had mercy on me. We have an all powerful God, the only God who is kind and merciful and does not treat as our sins deserve.


My husband wrote a book about my healing, called Staying Alive. Someone said to me “Why are you writing a book about your healing? Sure many people are healed and they don’t talk about it or even write a book about it.”Or another said “Who do you think you are praying? Leave that to the priests and ministers!”


The reason I heard someone say to me that many people are prayed for and are not healed is because we hear stories about those who weren’t healed. People are not speaking up and telling about being healed by God.

I am speaking up. I had to overcome my own fear of telling my story, afraid of what people may think. I overcome Satan by the word of my testimony and I love not my life unto death.


I will continue to tell of God’s love, mercy and compassion to heal. If you haven’t had an answer to your prayers don’t give up. Don’t loose hope. God’s Word tells us stories about perseverance. A widow wanted justice from a judge . She pestered him till he finally gave in because she was annoying him. A neighbour asked his neighbour for bread late at night. He was in bed and didn’t want to answer. But because the neighbour kept knocking the man got up and gave him bread.


How much kinder is our Heavenly Father. God wants us to believe and wrestle with him till we see the answers. Don’t dwell on what has not worked out. Meditate on stories of faith and God’s answered prayer. Give thanks for what God has already done and praise him for what he Is going to do for you.


I want to share stories of healing. If you have been healed by God tell others. Feel free to tell me about your healing! Thank you for reading.

The Importance of Testimony

Brendan and I were speaking at a pastor’s church in Switzerland in June this year. He told us he sees David Hathaway often. Oh I said “My arm was healed when I listened to Brendan reading from David’s Book.” The pastor said “Did you tell him?” No I hadn’t told him.


I fell from a step ladder as I picking pears back in September of 2018. The ladder did the splits and I crashed onto my right side. My arm reached out to break the fall. I lay there unable to move. I knew there was no one nearby to hear me call.

After a while I rolled onto my left side and levered myself to stand up. I walked to the kitchen where my daughter was. I got help. My right arm was broken. For the next weeks my arm was in pain. Even after the plaster was removed I had pins and needles in my fingers and more pain. I slept a lot. I was depressed. I couldn’t cook, drive or write.


At the end of December Brendan was reading one of David Hathaway’s books. He was at the end of a meeting. He called all those who had broken arms and legs to come forward. “God was going to heal them” he declared. I received my healing at that moment. No more numbness, tingling sensations or pain as I moved my hand. Praise God. David says it is the power of God, The Holy Spirit moving through him that heals.


Brendan got a phone call from the pastor on Thursday. He wanted to speak to me. David Hathaway was with him. I introduced myself to David and told him how I had received my healing as Brendan read from David’s book. He was encouraged to hear my testimony. He prayed for Brendan and I over the phone. We received his blessing. What a privilege to talk to him.

David Hathaway is a ninety year old English Evangelist who has worked behind the Iron Curtain for forty years. He has preached throughout Russia and Ukraine. In many countries the people don’t have good heath services.

He said he hadn’t time to die. He is needed to help in many nations. Leaders of countries call him asking him to come to their countries and the government arrange for him to speak to their people. He is an Ambassador for the King of kings and Lord of lords. He tells the people that Jesus is the way to heaven, whether they are communists, Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant, Atheist, Muslem, Black or White.

I tell this story to emphasise the importance of speaking about what God has done for you. It encourages the one who has prayed for you and it brings glory to God. Scripture says we overcome Satan by the word of our testimony and we love not our lives unto death.


God is moving in power to heal people today. Many people think that signs and wonders ended after Jesus and the Apostles died. No no. If God has healed you in any way tell someone about it. Broadcast the wonders of God. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.
If you have a testimony let me know.

God is s Writer

I am writing this post on a tablet, a modern machine that allows me to write words with my finger.

God wrote with His finger on Tablets of stone. Here is an account of what happened.

Exodus 24 v 12
New Living Translation
12 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Come up to me on the mountain. Stay there, and I will give you the tablets of stone on which I have inscribed the instructions and commands so you can teach the people.”

Exodus 31:18
New Living Translation
18 When the Lord finished speaking with Moses on Mount Sinai, he gave him the two stone tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant,written by the finger of God.

They were inscribed on both sides back and front.

Exodus 32:19
When they came near the camp, Moses saw the calf and the dancing, and he burned with anger. He threw the stone tablets to the ground, smashing them at the foot of the mountain.

Exodus 34:1
A New Copy of the Covenant
Then the Lord told Moses, “Chisel out two stonetablets like the first ones. I will write on them the same words that were on the tablets you smashed.

Exodus 34:28
New Living Translation
28 Moses remained there on the mountain with the Lord forty days and forty nights. In all that time he ate no bread and drank no water. And the Lord[a] wrote the terms of the covenant—the Ten Commandments[b]—on the stone tablets.

God told Moses to keep the tablets of stone as a reminder to His people of His covenant promises if they kept His commands.

But mankind was not able to keep God’s laws. God had a new plan where He said He would write His laws on our hearts.

He has done this by giving us His Holy Spirit into our hearts. He will teach us His ways as we believe in His Son Jesus.

An Heartfelt Prayer

An heart felt prayer

This is an encouragement about how to pray. You may be facing an unexpected attack with difficulties on every side and you feel helpless. Take heart from this prayer. As you sing and praise circumstances will change and you will be rewarded.

A prayer when a king was facing great armies.

2 Chronicles 20

5 Jehoshaphat stood before the community of Judah and Jerusalem in front of the new courtyard at the Temple of the Lord. 6 He prayed, “O Lord, God of our ancestors, you alone are the God who is in heaven. You are ruler of all the kingdoms of the earth. You are powerful and mighty; no one can stand against you!

Whenever we are faced with any calamity such as war, plague, or famine, we can come to stand in your presence before this Temple where your name is honored. We can cry out to you to save us, and you will hear us and rescue us.’

10 “And now see what the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir are doing.
O our God, won’t you stop them? We are powerless against this mighty army that is about to attack us. We do not know what to do, but we are looking to you for help.”

13 As all the men of Judah stood before the Lord with their little ones, wives, and children, 14 the Spirit of the Lord came upon one of the men standing there. His name was Jahaziel son of Zechariah, son of Benaiah, son of Jeiel, son of Mattaniah, a Levite who was a descendant of Asaph.

15 He prophesied , “Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehoshaphat! This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. 16 Tomorrow, march out against them. But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the Lord’s victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for the Lord is with you!”

20 Early the next morning the army of Judah went out into the wilderness of Tekoa. On the way Jehoshaphat stopped and said, “Listen to me, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be able to stand firm. Believe in his prophets, and you will succeed.”

21 After consulting the people, the king appointed singers to walk ahead of the army, singing to the Lord and praising him for his holy splendor.
Give thanks to the Lord;
his faithful love endures forever!”

22 At the very moment they began to sing and give praise, the Lord caused the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to start fighting among themselves. There was so much plunder it took three days to collect it.

An Important Scripture

An Important Scripture

2 Chronicles 15 v 2-5
The Lord will stay with you as long as you stay with him.


Whenever you seek him you will find him.
But if you abandon him he will abandon you.
For a long time Israel was without the true God. Without a priest to teach them and without God’s law.


Whenever you were in distress and turned to the Lord and sought him out you found him.
Problems troubled the nation on every hand.
God was troubling you with every kind of problem.

Can anyone relate to this scripture. Have you problems? Are you in distress? Turn to God again. Read his Word. Listen to teaching from God’s Word. Pray. God will give you peace and deliver you from trouble.
