December 21,  2023 – Woman raised from the dead at Refuge Mission Hall.

“For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of CHRIST: for it is The POWER of GOD unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first; and also to the Greek. For therein is The Righteousness of GOD revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The Just Shall Live By Faith.”  Romans 1:16-17


Josie came by and talked to me as I was looking after the washrooms tonight. She let me know how that she had done a hit of heroin two months earlier and lost consciousness. A fire started and severely burned both her legs.


“Now unto HIM that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to The Power That Worketh In Us. Unto HIM be glory in the Ekklesia (church) by CHRIST JESUS throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”

Ephesians 3:20-21


I told Josie she looked good and her countenance was bright. Josie told me that she had been staying with a friend in Sherwood Park, and had actually stopped doing drugs. I affirmed her on her decision.


JESUS said unto her, I AM the RESURRECTION, and the LIFE; He that believeth in ME, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in ME shall never die. Believest thou this?”  John 11:25-26


It was an unusually busy night for the ladies with the washrooms. Often the ladies were occupying both the men’s and ladies washrooms.


“And this is the record, that GOD hath given to us ETERNAL LIFE , and this LIFE is in HIS SON. He that hath the SON hath LIFE; and he that hath not the SON of GOD hath not LIFE. These things have I written unto you that believe on the NAME of the SON of GOD; that ye May Know that ye have ETERNAL LIFE and that ye may believe on the NAME of the SON of GOD.”       1 John 5:11-13


At one point in the evening Josie and an unidentified lady used the washrooms at the same time. I checked on both ladies every 5 minutes.  Is everything alright?  Immediately the response would be; yes. This process went on for twenty minutes. Not unusual as visitors to the Refuge Mission Hall are often constipated.


“And as ye go; Preach, saying, The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.” Matthew 10:7-8


At the 25 minute mark, I checked again on both ladies. No response to my vocal check. So I went to check if we had any lady volunteers serving. No lady volunteers tonight.


“And HE said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and Preach the Gospel to Every Creature.  He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these Signs Shall Follow Them That Believe; In MY NAME shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”

Mark 16:15-18


I spoke to one of our regular visitors to the Refuge Mission Hall known as Elisha. She had two black eyes. Can you come with me as I check on two ladies in the washrooms? I explained; neither is responding to me. I would like you  there for their protection and mine?


“And they went forth and preached every where, The LORD Working With Them, and Confirming The WORD with signs following. Amen.”  Mark 16:20


Elisha graciously obliged and followed me into the ladies washroom. I opened the cubicle door to find an unidentified woman unconscious from drugs she had just used.  The evidence was on the floor. The woman’s head was hanging over her legs; nearly touching the floor.


“In the beginning was The WORD, and The WORD was with GOD, and The WORD was GOD. The same was in the beginning with GOD. All things were made by HIM; and without HIM was not any thing made that was made. In HIM was Life; and The Life was The Light of men. And The Light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”  John 1:1-5


Elisha watched as I put my hands on her back. In the Name of JESUS, receive life from head to toe. Be free, be whole in JESUS Name. The woman came out of her unconscious state almost immediately. She finished up and walked out.


“But if the SPIRIT of HIM that raised up JESUS from the dead dwell in you, HE that raised up CHRIST from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by HIS SPIRIT that dwelleth in you.”  Romans 8:11


Then Elisha and I went to check on Josie in the men’s washroom. When I opened the cubicle, Elisha and I discovered Josie in a similar position to the first woman.


“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I AM come that they might have LIFE, and that they might have it more abundantly.”  John 10:10


I put my hands on Josie’s back. In the Name of JESUS, receive life from head to toe. No physical response. In the Name of JESUS, receive life from head to toe. No response. I tried to pull Josie’s shoulders back and straighten her up. Josie’s body was stiff!


“For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”

James 2:26


Elisha and I agreed to pull Josie’s body off the toilet and lay it on the floor. I could see Josie’s eyes were open, she wasn’t breathing and no response to any stimuli. I continued to speak; Josie you shall not die, but live. Josie you shall not die, but live in JESUS Name!


“And JESUS answering saith unto them, Have faith in GOD. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”  Mark 11:22-23


I began to pray in the SPIRIT with intensity.


Likewise The SPIRIT also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but The SPIRIT HIMSELF maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And HE that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is The Mind of The SPIRIT, because HE maketh intercession for the saints according to The Will of GOD.”

Romans 8:26-27


As Josie’s body lay on the floor, in the natural it was evident that she had died. Josie was dead!


“Behold, I AM The LORD, The GOD of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for ME?”

Jeremiah 32:27


Elisha asked if we had any Narcan. I told her I would go check with Wayne. I came back a couple minutes later with some Narcan. Elisha gave an injection to Josie’s body. Josie’s lifeless body had no response to the injection.


“For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto GOD: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.” 1 Corinthians 14:2


I continued to pray in the SPIRIT in perfect peace. Elisha gave another injection of Narcan to Josie’s body five minutes later. Josie’s lifeless body continued not to respond. Josie was dead!


“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the SPIRIT, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”

Ephesians 6:18


While all this was going on, Wayne was asked to call 911 for emergency response. I continued to pray in the SPIRIT.


“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4


Josie’s lifeless body was on the floor for twenty minutes. Suddenly The HOLY SPIRIT brought Josie back to life.


And the LORD GOD formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”  Genesis 2:7


Harold sat Josie up and said; breathe! The HOLY SPIRIT raised up Josie from her physical death.


“For in HIM we live, and move, and have our being: as certain also of your own poets have said. For we are also HIS offspring.”

Acts 17:28


When the EMT’s arrived,  Josie refused to go with the ambulance attendants. The EMT’s left and I thanked them.


All glory to GOD!


“Now unto HIM that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to The Power That Worketh In Us. Unto HIM be glory in the Ekklesia (church) by CHRIST JESUS throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”

Ephesians 3:20-21


I spoke with Josie after the EMT’s left and told her that The FATHER had intervened. GOD had snatched Josie out of the kingdom of darkness and translated her into the kingdom of HIS dear SON, The LORD JESUS CHRIST, in Whom we have redemption through HIS Blood, even the forgiveness of sins. Josie wept. She said; I feel so ashamed. I told her you are accepted in the beloved. Your Heavenly FATHER reconciled you to HIMSELF through HIS SON JESUS CHRIST.


“But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the HOLY GHOST, Keep yourselves in The LOVE of GOD, looking for the mercy of our LORD JESUS CHRIST unto ETERNAL LIFE. And of some have compassion, making a difference. And others save with fear, Pulling Them Out Of The Fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. Now unto HIM that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before The PRESENCE Of HIS Glory with exceeding joy, To The ONLY WISE GOD Our SAVIOUR, be Glory and Majesty, Dominion and Power, both now and ever. Amen.”

Jude 20-25


I put my arm around her and said; you are loved. She cried and held me tight. I told her that JESUS came to give her life.


“I AM the TRUE VINE, and MY FATHER is the HUSBANDMAN. Every branch in ME that beareth no fruit HE taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, HE purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the WORD which I have spoken unto you.  Abide in ME, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the VINE; no more can ye, except ye abide in ME. I AM the VINE, ye are the branches: he that abideth in ME, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without ME ye can do nothing.”  John 15:1-5


Harold also spoke into Josie’s life and I prayed for her complete physical restoration.


“Now The GOD of Peace, that brought again from the dead Our LORD JESUS, that GREAT SHEPHERD of the sheep, through The BLOOD of The Everlasting Covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to Do HIS WILL, Working In You  that which which is Well Pleasing in HIS Sight, through JESUS CHRIST; to Whom Be Glory For Ever and Ever. Amen.”

Hebrews 13:20-21


Later Mark and Murray shared the gospel with Josie. We all prayed for her before closing the Refuge Mission Hall for the night.


“But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in GOD which raiseth the dead: Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: In WHOM we trust that HE will yet deliver us;”. 2 Corinthians 1:9-10


As I was driving home I was praying in the SPIRIT. The FATHER made it clear to me that Josie had been attacked by the spirit of death.


“I AM HE that liveth,  and was dead; and, Behold, I AM Alive For Evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”

Revelation 1:18


All glory to GOD!


“Now thanks be unto GOD, which always causeth us to triumph in CHRIST, and maketh manifest the savour of HIS knowledge by us in every place.”

2 Corinthians 2:14


“But thanks be to GOD, which giveth us the victory through our LORD JESUS CHRIST.”

1 Corinthians 15:57
