Ok, let me be transparent and real about this. I have no agenda or theology
to exalt or to put down. Just the facts, Ma’am! That’s the goal of this short writ.
One evening after a time of praying for the pastors, one of the Honduran pastors,
Pastor Minellio, was praying for the sick and a few of our team noticed him
shaking as he prayed for the one in need, the power of the Holy Spirit being felt
strongly by all.
Afterwards there was a time of fellowship under the arbor where we shared lunch
and dinner with the pastors and their families. The team that noted the Honduran
pastor shaking asked him about that? He then related the following story. He said
that in his village in the mountains one of his friends seem to be depressed and
at one point tried to take his life. This pastor and two more friends who loved the
man, determined to fast and pray for three days for him with him being continually
with them, witnessing their fasting and hearing their prayers.
On the third day, according to this “shaking" pastor, their suicidal friend had a single,
violent vomiting episode, and at the same time moment, the three praying friends
were knocked to the ground by some unknown force!?
After that moment their friend has been free of oppression, depression, and acts
normally. And when our new "quaking" pastor friend prays for people and senses
the Holy Spirit is near, he shakes as he prays.
Indeed, he says when it happens to him, he knows or recognizes the Holy Spirit
is near to heal or deliver or help.
After watching him, and sensing the Spirit ourselves, we all believe it's true and
happened just that way.
This pastor is a very quiet, always kind, pleasant, and humble – even shy.
We only report what we saw, and felt, and heard. :)
The Lord be magnified for helping those in need. And for equipping and empowering
His own to help or serve in the process.
“But if I cast out devils by the finger of God, the Kingdom of God has come
near to you.” Luke 11:20
