More Testimonies – Benefits of Fasting and Prayer

I was so wonderfully blessed of God through fasting and prayer that I cannot help but share my experience with you. I had joined a mutual loan club with some other ladies. This proved to be a bad investment and I lost all of my property including our house. In addition to that I incurred a debt of $20,000. Finally our entire family had to move into a small room renting for only $10.00 a month.

My husband began to stay out until around midnight drinking heavily and playing poker with his fnends, and I rarely saw him. I could find no way out of the suffering, failure, and self-condemnation. I tried to commit suicide by taking an overdose of sleeping tablets, but I failed in that. One day, on my way to a dance hall, I met a friend of mine. She asked me where I was going, and I told her I was going to the dance hall to try to forget everything. She asked me If I would go with her to a place that was better than any of those places of entertainment so I consented and she took me to the Full Gospel Central Church.

That night the sermon was just for me from beginning to end. The pastor preached for me to surrender all my burdens to Christ and to accept the peace that comes from Him. I poured out my heart to Jesus and confessed my sins to Him. I searched my heart and repented of every sin and accepted Jesus as my Saviour. I remembered the marriage ceremony when my husband and I were joined in matrimony by a pastor. However, from the time of my wedding I continued in a life of sin. But as I repented that day, I was given peace and rest from above.

My husband continued living an ungodly life. I thought to myself, "When I lead him to Jesus Christ, our family can have a happy home." With this thought I determined to fast and pray for my husband. Shortly after this, my husband had to leave on business for a week. After he left I went to the Full Gospel Prayer Mountain without his knowledge and fasted and prayed. At the end of the week I hurried home in order to be there when he arrived, but he was already at home. He accused me of not caring for the house while he was away and said that I was responsible for the collapse of our home.

I shared my experience of the past few days with him and told him of the joy, new hope, and real peace God had given me since I accepted Christ as my Saviour. I told him I was fasting and praying for him to receive Jesus Christ as his Saviour also, emphasizing that only through Christ could new hope and joy be found.

He listened quietly for a while and then said he would like to go to church with me. Hallelujah! God had answered my prayers. My husband became a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. He quit smoking, drinking, and gambling, and we are worshipping in church every Sunday and Wednesday without fail. From time to time I have fasted for five days or a week, and God has blessed us. God gave me a precious son to go with our two daughters and miraculously cleared our debt. Before we met Christ, we had only false happiness but now we have true joy that only comes from Christ. There is no doubt that the power of fasting and prayer has opened the door of God's blessings to us.

Hallelujah! We praise and thank Him for what He has done.

As this testimony points out, fasting and prayer are very beneficial to our home and to us personally. For the Christian it is a great treasure. As our faith grows, we enjoy greater and greater blessings from God. Faith in Christ provides us with a positive thought pattern which, when controlled by Christ, is the basic road that will lead us the right way.

People who continually think negative thoughts, such as, "I can't do," "It is impossible," or "I am too poor," harvest the results of such thoughts. On the other hand, people who think positive thoughts, such as, "I can do," "It is possible," and "I am able," as trees planted by a stream continue to bear good fruit. People with positive faith in Christ tend to find blessing in every situation. Whenever problems arise, no matter how difficult, such people immerge victoriously through the power of their positive faith in Jesus Christ.

Pastors with this positive faith see the Holy Spirit bring revival to churches that are declining. There is a need to concentrate our efforts on teaching pastors to fast and pray until they receive the power of the Holy Spirit in their ministry. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, the church of 150 will grow to 500; the church of 500 will grow to 1,000 or even 5,000 members. This IS happening in our country of Korea. If all pastors would let God use them in the power of the Holy Spirit in this way it would be only a short time until the 50 million people of Korea could be challenged with the gospel of Christ.

The gospel comes in power, in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance (I Thessalonians I :5). Parents who have this positive faith dedicate their children to Him and bring them up in the love and power of Christ. These parents discipline their children according to the Word of God in the power of the Holy Spirit. As they continue to pray and fast for them, their young people will rarely go into a protracted life of sin and worldliness and be lost.

The home is the basic unit in our human society. Even though it is the smallest unit, it is extremely important to the nation. As homes propser, so a nation prospers. We Christians must not only pray for our nation but make our homes sound and firm with the power of God. Then, it is our responsi.bility to share this blessing with our neighbors. In this way we can best care for our families and serve our country. How do we receive this positive faith? By earnestly seeking Christ through fasting and prayer. No doubt there are those who disagree with this philosophy, but there are many Christians who hAve already experienced this positive faith through fasting and prayer.

Throughout much of my life I also had a negative faith. For nearly 25 years I held various positions In the church but finally one day the pressures of life's responsibilities became so intense I tried to commit suicide by starvation. For 20 days I did not eat, but during that time I began to seek the Lord earnestly and He showed me the power that comes through fasting and prayer. Christ healed me of diabetes, insomnia, and hysteria, and He also took away my hatred and begrudging spirit. Then, at the age of 41, God called me to the Full Gospel Bible School in Seoul and made me a victorious pastor.

The most precious treasure we have is to be able to meet God; to talk and commune with Him directly. It is through fasting and prayer that we experience God's supernatural power. This always brings real joy and spiritual happiness.

It is obvious that the only way true revival can come to our homes, our neighbors, our churches, and our country is through fasting and prayer. When revival comes, sin is confessed, people are regenerated, and the problems that plague each unit of our society will be solved. Isn't it the Christian's greatest mission to strive earnestly to do all we can to bring this kind of revival? Hallelujah!

TESTIMONY

On New Year's Day, when I returned home late in the evening from visiting a pastor's home, I discovered some unfortunate circumstances had created a major crisis.

A man who owed us a considerable sum of money was to come from his country home to settle his debt before the New Year. However, the holiday traffic made it impossible for him to get to Seoul until late on New Year's Day, and so he arrived at my office while I was out visiting. In my office was a man he had met there several times before, so thinking that he was in charge for the day the debtor gave him the money to clear his debt. The man who received the money then ran away with the funds.

One morning, shortly after this incident, I awoke to find that my ankle was very badly swollen. I went to an oriental hospital to receive an acupuncture treatment, but the doctor told me that acupuncture would be very dangerous. With a heavy heart I made my way to the Full Gospel Prayer Mountain.

I fasted and prayed for three days and nights without hearing any answer from heaven. I was suffering with the burden of these problems, and now I was hungry as well as discouraged. On the fourth day as I was praying, God convicted me of my self-sufficient attitude.

The voice of God spoke to me saying, "My Son, if you believe me, why don't you let me take all your problems? As long as you carry them yourself I cannot do the work for you. The people who really love me are those who surrender themselves to Me and My will. I help them to exercise their faith. So if you will entrust all your burdens to me, I will take care of them Instead of you. Why don't you entrust all your problems to me? You are still suffering because you try to solve the problems yourself in your own way. Surrender all your heavy burdens to me."

In the middle of my prayer I exclaimed, "0 Lord, you are right! Forgive me for not trusting you Lord. I surrender all of myself, 0 Lord. Take my burdens now. I believe you are giving me the answer."

I continued to confess my faults and when I finished

was to come from his country home to settle his debt

I fasted and prayed for three days and nights with-
out hearing any answer from heaven. I was suffering
with the burden of these problems, and now I was

surrender all of myself, 0 Lord. Take my burdens now.
I believe you are giving me the answer.”

I continued to confess my faults and when I finished
praying my spirit felt refreshed and I had joy and peace
of mind.

Soon after I arrived home, I received a telephone call
and was greatly surprised to hear the person who had
stolen the money saying he had come back to Seoul to
return it to me. I asked him why he decided to return it.
He explained that as he was on his way to Suwon City
he had undergone a change of mind. He said that
suddenly he remembered that I made my living
honestly and was serving Christ, and as he thought
about it over and over again he finally decided that he
must return all that he had stolen.

Hallelujah! God not only wonderfully provided the
return of this money, but shortly after my ankle was
completely healed. God has so abundantly blessed me
that I cannot tell you all He has done for me.
Since realizing the dynamic power in fasting and
prayer, whenever I face a difficult matter I fast and
pray about it, and God always gives the victory.

Hallelujah! I give all the glory to God for the blessings
He has provided for me through fasting and prayer. I
am thankful for the guidance of my pastor in these
matters.”

BENEFITS FOR YOUR HEALTH

Fasting provides benefits for our body in many
ways. It is only natural for us to think that we must eat
three good meals every day to be healthy. Of course
nourishing food is important in order to maintain our
health, but often sickness comes from eating too much
food too fast.

Many question how fasting will promote our
physical well-being, but for centuries doctors have
stated that temperance in eating is a key to the maintenance of good health. Doctors restrict the diets of
people when they are ill, and we would do well to heed
this advice even though we are not ill.

Down through history, great sages have insisted that
their disciples fast in order to cure diseases in the body.
For centuries eastern medicine has advised fasting for
more than three days as a cure for stomach ailments.
People continually indulge in excessive eating and then
take digestive medicine to relieve the discomfort which
results. It seems illogical that such practices are
continually repeated, but in this modern age the prevailing philosophy seems to be to eat lots of nourish-
ing food and then take many different kinds of medicine to cure the diseases of the body.

Some diseases can be cured through fasting.

However, let us always be aware that when we fast and
pray in faith believing, we also receive healing through
the miraculous power of God.

Much research has been conducted by eminent
doctors and scientists as to the effects of fasting on the
human body.

Dr. Frank McCoy stated in his book, The Fast Way
to Health,’ that he has performed surgery for various
diseases and has used psychology to cure other
diseases, but through research he found that in many
cases fasting was an effective method. He also says that
he has prescribed fasting to many patients.
In his book, Vitality, Fasting and Nutrition, Or.
Carrington,’ of England, said that fasting was one of
the best ways for people to enjoy better health and long
life. He explains that he feels there is one basic factor
that causes ailments and from this factor a variety of
symptoms appear.

Ordinarily a doctor tries to treat the ailment accord-
ing to the symptoms, but if he does not realize what the
root of the ailment is, he will not be able to completely
cure the disease. What is the main basic factor? Dr.
Carrington feels that it is food and drink.

Generally speaking, most people eat much more
than they need to in order to maintain their health. As
a result all the food taken in is not digested. The
surplus is excreted from the body. However, there is a
small amount of refuse that builds up throughout the
digestive tract. This disturbs the circulatory system and
becomes a basic factor that causes disease.
We cannot completely remove this factor with medicine, but our body needs to be cleansed of this build
up. The best way to do this is to fast periodically.

Fasting for a few days causes our bodies to begin using
stored up nourishment. Waste and injurious substances are removed, and as the blood is cleansed the
disease factor is eliminated and symptoms disappear.
Let us direct our attention to the assertion of Dr.
Frank McCoy, educator and head surgeon in a Los
Angeles hospital. In his book, Fast Way to Health, he
states that the fundamental cause of every ailment is
that blood containing injurious substances hinders the
proper function of various organs. This impure blood
does not circulate well and little by little causes conges-
tion in the organs. This results in functional disorders.
Continued excessive intake of unfit food is one of the
major causes of impurities in the blood. Abscesses,
cancer, tuberculosis, tracheitis, ovarian disorders, and
other such problems stem from this factor. It is beneficial to control food and drink, thereby cleansing the
blood stream. We have many written testimonies of
people who after fasting and prayer witnessed that
their minds were clear, all manner of diseases disap-
peared, and they were able to work more actively than
ever before.

During times of fasting it is important to drink water
every day. While fasting, excess fat, protein, and carbohydrates that are stored in the body are used. Intesti-
nal refuse and other harmful matter are discharged
with the normal body waste. The constitution is
changed; the skin becomes soft, and disease germs
disappear. In addition to this, all the organs of the
body receive a complete rest. If we can derive so great a
physiological benefit from fasting, how much more
beneficial, both physically and spiritually, when we
combine fasting and prayer.

At the Full Gospel Prayer Mountain where I am
currently the director, every day we see people healed
of serious diseases. Healing is only one of the blessings
received through fasting and prayer. God not only
heals our diseases but also grants us health and
increases our faith.

TESTIMONY

Some months ago I began to
feel an ache in my wrist. Gradually it became worse until I couldn’t
sleep or even use chopsticks with
that hand. Finally I went to the
doctor for treatment. After ex-
amining me he said my hand had
to be amputated and if I didn’t
have the operation soon I would lose my whole arm up
to the shoulder.

His words hit me like a bolt of lightning. After the
initial shock, I went through a period of deep agony
and depression until I could not do anything. How-
ever, I didn’t remain in this state but came to a deci-
sion that I would go to the Full Gospel Prayer Moun-
tain to fast and pray.

I arrived in Seoul from Japan around the first of
February and went directly to the prayer mountain. As
I started to fast and pray, I decided that three days was
the right length of time. During that time, I struggled
with hunger, coldness, and fear of my arm not being
healed. With the help of the Lord I extended my fasting
and prayer to 15 days.

After I had completed about a week of fasting, the
pain in my arm was extremely intense and the arm
became very swollen. Fear came into my heart that my
arm had become so bad that I would, as the doctor had
warned, lose my arm and be deformed. As I continued
to fast and pray the swelling in my arm began to abate
and the pain became less severe. Whenever I was in
pain or in the depths of disappointment, the words of
advice from the pastor and her praying for me with the
laying on of hands greatly encouraged me to continue
to fast and pray.

By the time I completed the tenth day of fasting, I
had great courage and faith to overcome anything
through Jesus Christ. By the fifteenth day, I was
completely healed, and my arm was as though there
had never been any physical problem.

Now I work every day in my company and enjoy my
life In health. I am quick to testify to others about the
wonderful healing touch from God that I received.

Hallelujah!

I love and appreciate God and give Him all the
glory. I want to thank you, Pastor Choi, for taking care
of me while I was fasting and praying there.

For many years I played an accordion in a night club. During that
time I suffered from tuberculosis. At
first the disease was mild and I could
work without any trouble, but
gradually it became worse. Finally I
began to cough up blood, and from
that time on I could not work. In
fact, I had to spend most of every day in bed. My con-
dition was so severe that the various medicines given to
me did not help.

One day my Christian mother-in-law visited my
home and told me I should go to the Full Gospel
Prayer Mountain. She said that if I would confess my sin and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ that
He would save me and heal my disease.
I went to the prayer mountain and earnestly
began to confess my sin and ask God to help me
and to heal my body. Due to my weakened condition. I could not fast and pray continually. So at
first I fasted one day and then ate cereal for a
day; then fasted two days before eating rice cereal
for a day. This I did for a period of 30 days. At
the end of this time, even though I did not fast
continuously, I felt the assurance that God had
healed me of the tuberculosis. The hemorrhaging of
my lungs ceased and the asthmatic symptoms completely disappeared. The joy I felt in my heart was
so great I was scarcely able to contain myself. The
day after I returned home from the prayer mountain I went to the hospital for an X-ray
examination. The amazed doctor said that the disease
was completely healed. Hallalujah!

I am sending the X-ray film to you as evidence
of what Christ did for me. I hope that you will
keep it at the prayer mountain to help others
believe. God is able. Truly Jesus lives and He
always answers prayer. How can I give God
recompense for what He has done? I give Him all
the glory and honor.

BENEFIT TO OUR SPIRIT

Our spirit and body can become cleansed at the
same time. There is a Korean proverb that says a
sound mind is a sound body. Mind and body are
inseparable until death. It has been our experience
that people easily fall into the depths of one or
more of the following: despair, melancholy, enmity,
discouragement, fear, anxiety, anger, and depravity.

As our body is made clean, these morbid
thought patterns are purged from our mind. God
has created man to be purified both spiritually and
physically at the same time.

Satan tries to tempt us with unclean food and
drink. We have found that a great number of peo-
ple have been freed from Satan’s power and from
sickness through fasting and prayer. .
Dr. Bernarr A. Macfadden,’ an authority on
physical health says that fasting has a great effect
on the human spirit. He tells of an experience of
communion with the Holy Spirit while fasting and
the experience was precious beyond description.
The only way one is able to understand it is to
have such an experience. There is an unlimited rest
and peace that engulfs our entire being. It seems as
if living water is flowing from deep within. After
such an experience one has great compassion for
the human race and a love and understanding for
each other that enables one to enjoy life with God
and live in harmony with others.

Fasting and prayer is a source of strength for
both our body and our mind. It will strengthen
our will, develop our intellectual faculties, give us
fortitude and increased vitality, make our mind
capable of concentrating more, and establish a
healthy attitude and philosophy of life. Remember
that fasting and prayer purify the body as well as
the mind and at the same time, under His blessing
and grace, our faith in God is increased.

TESTIMONY

For five years I had been
bothered with indigestion and I
felt as though a heavy mass of
iron was laying in my abdomen.
Then rather suddenly it became
much worse and at night -1- could
only sleep a short time. Due to
the pain I made noises during the
night and my family could not sleep. We did not
have enough money for me to receive treatment at
a large hospital, so I went to a small clinic near
my home. After an examination the doctor said he
couldn’t find the nature of my illness.
One day when I was in the midst of pain and
despair, a member of the Full Gospel Central
Church visited me and suggested that I go to the
prayer mountain to fast and pray for my healing.
She told me that many different kinds of diseases
were healed as people fasted and prayed before
God.

I went to the prayer mountain and began to fast
and pray. As the days passed the hunger and
coldness became so intense that I could barely sup-
port myself. I prayed, “0 Lord, if you do not
touch me 1 will surely die here.” On the fourth
day, as I was going to take part in the early morn-
mg service, I began to cough severely and some
strange things came out of my mouth. They were
gallstones as large as green peas.

Hallelujah, God had healed me in a wonderful
way. 1 truly believe that this miracle from God is
a result of the power that comes through fasting
and prayer. 1 finished my fifth day of fasting and
praying praising God for His wonderful blessing.
Now 1 can eat without any problem; all the food
is digested and there is no pain in my abdomen. I feel fresh and light just as if I am walking on air.
I give all the glory to God for teaching me the
value of fasting and prayer and healing me of my
sickness. Praise the Lord!

TESTIMONY

While my sister and I were living in Pusan, her
behavior became strange and she would sometimes
react violently. At times she would break the furniture in her house and beat the neighbor children
for no apparent reason. As a result of such actions
she was arrested by the police and the authorities
many times.

During this time, she was under a doctor’s care
and was taking. many kinds of medicine, but
without much improvement in her condition. She
even went to an exorcist, but she grew worse as
each day passed.

Her husband was a sailor who sailed up and
down the coasts of Korea. He was not at home
much to take care of her and so, without any
special plan in mind, I brought her to Seoul to
live.

One day a nephew visited my house and
suggested that he’d take her to the Full Gospel Prayer
Mountain. At that I time I was not attending church
and no longer believed in Christ, so I was hesitant
to consider doing this. Finally, realizing my sister
had to have an answer from God, on September
27, 1974, we went to the prayer mountain. I
believe God was arranging the events to bring both
my younger sister and me to the Lord Jesus
Christ.

The first day at the prayer mountain was un-
eventful. But the next day as we were attending the
ground breaking service for the dormitory my sister
suddenly shouted out, “Oh, I am sentenced to
death now.” I think that Satan recognized his time
of controlling my sister was nearly finished.
After the ground breaking. service, we asked
Sister Choi to lay hands on my sister and pray.

After she prayed for her, Sister Choi suggested that
we fast and pray. I confessed my sins to Christ
and asked Him to forgive me of my backsliding.
As we began then to fast and pray together for
one day, two days, and then three days; the crazy
behavior was less frequent and then disappeared
altogether.

We went home to Seoul for a few days and
returned again to the prayer mountain to fast and
pray more. My sister fasted for five days and I for
a week. All the time we were thanking Christ for
the mighty deliverance He had given us through
the power of His Name.

Now I am going to my home in Pusan with the
joy of God’s forgiveness, and my sister is returning
to her home with joy and happiness because she is
free from the terrible power of Satan. She is a
child of God.

I am praying that in the Name of Jesus many
people will receive blessings in their souls as well
as healing for their bodies. I give the glory to
God. Hallelujah!
