February 25th, 2009 – I was saved and healed by Jesus Christ!


Normal usual dosage was 130 mg Oxycontin daily (see end for medical issues)


February 26th – 2 x 20 mg Oxycontin

February 27th – 1 x 20 mg Oxycontin

From then on – no more.

Also no vitamins or fish oil

Still had Temaze for sleep for a few months but not so much now.


It is only by the Power of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit that you can be saved.

He saved me and healed me!


(Note: Every person’s journey with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is different)



My Testimony to Jesus

That was the beginning of my journey. I thought I should write a short account of the 21 years of pain, misery and prison I had endured, but as time goes on with my walk with Jesus , those years have faded into nothing. Maybe not even worth looking at, except to take lessons from.


My life has changed so much and the strength of my convictions and faith with the Lord of Life has grown to such an extent that there is no room for any negativity.


The most important thing I’ve learned is the greatness of God’s LOVE!!!


 So many fantastic people that Jesus has placed in my pathway, to start was 941fm, then the Lighthouse Church and Life Groups, Coniston United Church, Concrete Innovative Church and the  Close Encounters group, where I have met some of the most saintly people ever. At times I have felt as though I am actually living with Angels and the complete Heavenly Host!


I honour My Father for having had mercy on me and allowing the Holy Spirit to come and sift through my innermost and darkest thoughts and tell me where I have been so wrong with every aspect of my life.


All the Glory belongs to the Holy Spirit, and all the Praise belongs to Jesus, who has come and healed me of many ills.


 I wake up every morning praising the Lord Jesus Christ, honouring my Father and glorifying the Holy Spirit, and going to sleep in the same way, with a great sense of Peace that this is how life should be.


I Love you God my Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.



(from a separate source) Testimony to Jesus cont:



10.9.88 was the beginning of more than 20 years of pain, misery and prison. After 2 operations on the shoulder, a lot of physio, hydro, acupuncture and a lot of medications, there was only deterioration, physically and mentally. There were more than 20 things wrong with my body, proven by x-rays and blood tests.


      25.2.2009 the beginning of a new life – Jesus saved and healed me!!!



My life has changed so much and my faith in the Lord of Life has grown to such an extent that there is a total renewal of my thought processes.


The most important thing I have learned is the Greatness of God’s LOVE!!!


Jesus has placed so many wonderful people in my pathway. From 941fm , the Lighthouse Church, a Life Group and Prayer Networks, where I have met the most saintly people ever. At times I have felt as though I am living with Angels and the complete Heavenly Host.



I go to sleep praising Jesus Christ and wake up the same way.



What was wrong with my body:


Firstly, doctors described me as morbidly obese, and so I was.

Additional thoughts:


Hebrews 6:4,5. “For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift and become partakers of the Holy Spirit and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come”.


Stay in prayer.


Begins with the 10 commandments – we have forgotten to practice the 1st Commandment – Love God with all your might, all your heart, all your soul and all your strength.


Read the Bible front to back – several times – take notes, study the Word constantly. Only the Holy Spirit can guide you, with the help of Pastors, Ministers or people of the Clergy. My main sources of inspiration came from Joyce Meyer Ministries at 4 am on Capital and Benny Hinn Ministries at 5.30 am on Capital – a lot of good teaching.


Thessalonians 5:19 – Quench not the Spirit.


Pray without ceasing.


The Holy Spirit and prayer are interlocked.


Pray until the Holy Spirit comes because he is there and will give you the power to continue.


Live up to New Testament powers. In everything give thanks.


The Purpose of Pentacost.

Firstly you are clothed with the supernatural power of God.

Become a witness to Jesus. You are not speaking in your own name, but in the name of Jesus. You will receive revelation to who Jesus is. There is more to Jesus than just the saviour of the world. There is a depth of treasure in Jesus. Only the Holy Spirit will reveal Jesus. John 16:13,14 – “When the Spirit of truth comes he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he speaks and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14 He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you.


Then there is a fellowship as a result of the revelation. Romans 8:13,14 – for if you live according to the flesh you die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the Spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of sonship.


There are many children of God, but few sons. To be a son you must be led by the Spirit. You cannot be led by the

Spirit if the flesh is alive.


  • Become a representative of Jesus.
  • Become an instrument of God.


You must know Him to follow Him.

Death to flesh – kill all earthly desires and wants that this earth has enslaved us with.


Process begins where  freedom from flesh begins. When He became your sin he became at one with you.


You cannot be defeated by Satan unless you consent to be defeated.


Flesh is enemy – kill it.

When Jesus died, our flesh died if we live in Jesus Christ.


Intercession – the Holy Spirit intercedes for us because of our natural limitations.


As soon as flesh is dead you live in the Spirit. Death has to happen if you want to live. Declare flesh is dead. In that glorious death, there is resurrection. Then the Holy Spirit takes control – no sin has a place in your life.

Romans 8:13, 6:12,13, 6:6, 6:16, 6:14.


If you live in the flesh you die.

If you live in the Spirit you live.

Die to the flesh and live.

Live to the flesh and die.


Don’t feed the flesh – news, books, people, memories etc.,


Put your will to it.


Only the Holy Spirit can help you.


Jesus says come unto me all ye who are heavy laden and I will give you rest.


Pick up yoke of Jesus – not heavy. Ask Jesus to take your yoke. Stay in constant prayer.


Hebrews 11: 6. – and without faith it is impossible to please Him. For whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek Him.


There must be obedience – to not go with your own will – as with your own will – Satan sees he can take a hold and lead you. Only by obedience to Jesus can you go on a straight and true path with Jesus.


Don’t let Satan into your mind, where he puts confusion, doubt, thinking of self – where we should not go.



Agree and praise God as the Almighty God of Israel and the Universe. Praise God often. Seek what God has created and praise God.


Oh Lord – Hear.

Oh Lord – Forgive.

Oh Lord – have Mercy.

Oh Lord – give Heed and Act.

Oh Lord – Delay Not.


I began with “Dear Lord have mercy on me a sinner.”

Most important is to not stop reading the Bible.
