“The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor.” (Matt. 11:5).

My Facebook-friend Per Åkvist is a passionate evangelist that has seen a lot of miracles on his Joshua campaigns in eastern Africa. Two weeks ago they had a campaign in Sire, and my Facebook feed exploded with testimonies of God’s grace and healing power. Here are som photos Per published, with his comments in the captions.

Blind see, deaf hear, tumors is gone... many people had not the time to testify...

This is normal Christianity. It’s normal in the Bible and it’s normal in the charismatic revivals of Africa, Asia and Latin America. I will never forget when I was listening to an Ethiopian lady who shared some testimonies with an Indian man. She telled him how she had seen blind people see, deaf people hear and lame people walk as the power of God touched them, and he calmly replied, “yes, that’s common.” Not that he wasn’t excited, he was just used to it. I pray that we will get used to this in the West as well.

    Yay God!

    When I offer to pray for the sick at my mainline evangelical church in the US, I get maybe 1 or 2 people per week (out of about 400) willing to take the 5 minutes to receive prayer. The occasional miracle happens. When I made the same offer at a church in Niger last month, 60 out of about 100 lined up for prayer and waited, and a TON of miracles happened.

    I don’t get exactly why the difference exists, but it does. I’m standing with you in prayer that the West would increase in its awareness of the power of God!

    • I think the reason why it doesn’t happen in the west is simple… all you have to do is watch the news, read Facebook, watch twitter. We are all about the sensational, the fantastic, and we focus on recapturing that sensation and fantastic… where as miracles such as these are intended not to drum up appreciation of the miracles themselves, but to point, ultimately, to the Glory of God… the people in Niger, Ethiopia, etc., have no problem with seeing a miracle and saying, “Who is this God who can do this?” Here in the west, we see the miracle and have one of two responses: “How can I get more of that miracle?” and “How can I best make money out of it?”

      Sad… but that’s why the miracles don’t happen… lack of trust in God… too much trust in ourselves…

  2. Hurrah! In the end I got a web site from where I can actually take valuable information regarding
    my study and knowledge.

    • I’m glad you enjoy it, even though I now see that the images to this post are gone 🙂 Please subscribe on the email list for more updates, you’ll find it in the column to the left on a computer or below on mobile.

      Blessings!
