Quadraplegic healed by God – William Kent

Giving all the Praise, Honor and Glory unto the Lord through whom this testimony is made possible this eleventh day of November 2000.

Edited this 20thday of December to include the following quote from my Doctor, Dr. Dino Delaportas, MD

"I rejoice in awe of you and the miracles the Lord has performed."

My physician, as evidenced in the enclosed document, has confirmed the miracles I received from the Lord during a Faith and Victory Service at the World Harvest Church with Pastor Rod Parsley delivering the Word on November 5th, 2000.

On Monday the 13th of May 1985 I was involved in a motorcycle v. train accident which resulted in a Closed Head Injury (massive traumatic brain injury), Ruptured Optic Nerve (right eye), and Spinal Injuries. These injuries left me a quadriplegic (no use of my lower extremities and only partial use of my right hand with no feeling on my entire right side) cognitive deficits and short-term memory loss. As you can imagine these injuries were tremendously life changing. However, being a Born Again Christian, as well as having been an Emergency Medical Technician for several years before my accident, I was better situated in overcoming my injuries and moving forward with my life.

Although I was confined to a wheelchair I was able to continue through Him in my education at Salisbury State University, Hagerstown Junior College, and Prince George’s Community College where I was a student in General Studies and Para-Legal Studies.

While attending Salisbury State University in 1987, I became involved in wheelchair sports and excelled in Shooting. Over the next three years God blessed me with 39 Gold Medals, 14 Silver, and 3 Bronze and opportunities to compete in Regional, State, National, International, World Championships, and the 1988 Paralympics in Seoul, South Korea. During this time God also blessed me with 19 National and World Records.

In 1993, while attending Prince George’s Community College, I was blessed in an internship with Judge William D. Missouri the Administrative Judge of the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County (the first such internship in the Para-Legal program).

During the time between 1994 – June 2000, I went through a lot of turmoil in both my personal and professional life and was separated in faith through choice and ignorance – I thought I knew better without the Lord – was I ever wrong. This was perhaps the most destructive time in my life. I attempted suicide twice, lost the love of my life (so I thought), lost a business, and lots of friends.

Finally in July 2000, due to circumstances beyond my control, I was stuck at my Sister-in-Christ’s house with a broken down van. During this time I was lead back to the Lord and magnificent things started happening. I became so full of the Spirit that I lost control and have completely surrendered unto Him. I became active in the Church (The Tabernacle Church of Laurel, MD) and have been working on computers at the church since.

About three weeks before the November 5th service at the World Harvest Church the Lord moved in me that I needed to be in Columbus, Ohio on November 5th. I didn’t know why. I didn’t know anyone in Columbus nor had I ever heard of Pastor Rod Parsley or the World Harvest Church. Then about two weeks later I saw in infomercial about a Dept Burning Service at the World Harvest Church and the fact that the church was located in Columbus, Ohio. The Lord immediately came over me and led me to call the church right then to get the information, which ultimately lead to my being there on November 5th.

On the evening of Thursday, November 2nd I went to service at the Tabernacle Church in Laurel, MD and gave testimony that the Lord had placed it on my heart that I was to go to the World Harvest Church in Columbus, Ohio and that I was to receive a healing – just what healing I didn’t know as I had several ailments. Pastor Gurley then prayed over me for a healing that manifested the next morning with the feeling being restored to my right hand. Later that Thursday evening Pastor Gurley took an offering in order that my gas be covered to get me to Columbus – otherwise, without this blessing from God, I would not have been able to receive the awesome blessing that the Lord has provided.

Upon arrival at the World Harvest Church I called into the church from the parking lot, on my cell phone to speak with Ed McKee to see if there was some type accommodation that I may freshen up after my more than 400 mile drive. During this conversation I was informed that Ed was not there and that I had called in on the Prayer Line and the offer was extended for prayer. I accepted the offer and during this prayer a burning sensation came over my feet and I knew that the Lord was once again at work in my body and at that point I declared through Him that I would be healed and that I would accept His blessing that would enable me to walk. I revealed this to the prayer partner and asked that she keep an eye out for this miracle and then come shake my hand afterward so that I may meet her and thank her for agreeing in this healing.

During the service at the World Harvest Church on November 5th Pastor Parsley called all those with diabetes to come forward – and while I was up there the Pastor named several other afflictions and during this time I could feel the Lord working on my body and when I went to adjust myself in my wheelchair one of your ushers asked if I was trying to get out of my chair – and before I had a chance to respond the Spirit took control and spoke through me and said "I’m going to jump out of this chair in thirty seconds" – well guess what? – in thirty seconds I was standing for the first time in 15 ½ years. The ushers then asked if I could walk – I didn’t know – after all this was the first I had stood in 15 ½ years – I took a few steps forward and back and they asked if I could walk up the steps and I replied "lets ask the Lord" – and with that the Lord walked me up the steps onto platform (stage) on which the pulpit stands.

Before I entered the World Harvest Church that evening I tested my blood sugar and it as 470 without insulin for the prior three days. After I returned to my seat in the witness of the ushers and God Himself I tested my Blood sugar again – it as 128: Praise God!!!

And the healing hasn’t stopped. After returning to Laurel I called Pastor Gurley to inform him of the awesome miracles and ask that I be allowed to go into the sanctuary at the Tabernacle Church to give Praise and Worship unto Him for what He had provided in me and for the many others to see the miracles that they may also be blessed and renewed in Faith.

Prior to going into the sanctuary that morning, Pastor Gurley prayed over my eye and by the power of God flowing through him the patch came off. Praise God!!! The optic nerve damage in that eye was healed and I have limited vision out of my right eye. I still need prayer to clear up a cataract which has formed in that eye over the years but I put all my Faith and Trust in Him that this condition will also come to pass.

On Sunday, November 10th, God anointed a service at The Tabernacle Church (a packed house I may add) through which the miracles were unveiled in a dramatic way giving Praise, Honor, and All the Glory unto Him through Jesus Christ. His blessing which was bestowed unto me was then released and poured out over the congregation at The Tabernacle Church as He restored and renewed His Faith in His followers – it was absolutely awesome to be witness to His Awesome Power!!!

In a recent conversation with the Lord, He revealed to me that He has performed a supernatural healing in restoring me in which man is unable and that know I am to seek man to restore that which he is able and may we all be blessed in the gifts He has provided in all.

In the meantime be blessed and relax in the Spirit of the Lord and I am looking forward to God blessing the masses through the blessing that He has bestowed upon me as I follow His directive to go forth and spread the Word and demonstrate the awesome power of the Lord as He has provided in me.

In Christ, may all be blessed.

      Here are some links for those wishing to come out of the homosexual lifestyle.

      Here is a great place to find help from people who have been there and done that… http://exodus.to/content/view/40/67/

      One lady’s story of how the truth about the ability to come out of the ‘gay’ lifestyle is suppressed – http://www.narth.com/docs/leaving2.html

      God has made a way of escape for those who desire freedom to be who they are – and they are created to love and be loved by the opposite sex. Each year hundreds and thousands come out of homosexuality and find great strength and peace in being who the really are, not what some activist wants them to make them into.

      God bless you Tiarra! Don’t stop seeking your freedom until you have it sister! YOU CAN BE FREE!

      Blessings and Peace,

    • Nothando says:

      Hey blessed one of God. listen here and listen good. God knows everything that you are going through at the moment…….and God will never give you something that you cannot handle. the pain that you are feeling now is temporal. god is with you. remember that God says in His word that, for He knows the plans that He has for us, plans that will not destroy us but plans that will prosper us(Jeremiah29:11). just focus on God and pray to Him all the time, trust Him that He will reply u at the right time. the problem with u at the moment u r concentrating on the current situation. do u know the story of Job in the Bible. if u dont know it i would recommend u to go and read it……Job lost everything that He had but He never lost focus on God….He continued to love God. all i can say for now is that do not be afraid,be strong and courageous for the Lord is with u(Joshua1:9). and remember that there is no weapon formed against u that shall prosper. u are God’s chosen one……stay strong and will keep praying for u. keep well.

    • Ferdinand-

      I will lift you up- advice, make right with your parents; humility goes a long way with the Lord too.


    • Blood_Washed777 says:

      First of all i suggest you make sure your life is totally given to God. When this happens you are able to walk with God more Closely and He can Tell you what to do. When you are astray from him its harder to hear him or seek him. I also suggest reading, praying, fasting. And cleanse your life of impurities such as curse words, lieing, and other impure things that satan feeds off of.

      Love in Christ

  6. My 58-year-old dad has been in the ICU for six weeks, going on seven. We are blessed that he is still alive. The day he was rushed to the emergency room, he coded and they told us he might not live…but he did. His liver is not working very well, causing his body to retain fluid. This fluid is smothering his lungs and he cannot breath on his own. He continues to get infections, and currently has pnemonia. Every time he takes a step forward in his healing, he takes two backwards. In this time, I have searched for God, laid down, desperate, begging him to take our pain and to heal my father. I picture the bleading and desperate woman from the Bible, reaching out to touch the hem of Jesus’ robe. I envision my father reaching out for his robe, wondering if Jesus will give him the same healing he gave her. Three weeks ago, my sister had a healthy baby girl, my father’s first grandchild. I pray that he will hold her someday.
    We are suppounded by people who love us and are praying for us.I truly believe Jesus can save my Dad, even though there is so much pain the world. He is a good man and had always taken care of everyone around him.
    If you can, pray for us and help me understand HOW to pray…what to ask God.
    Thank you with all my heart

    • What your dad is going through (medical conditions) are some of the same things my wife went through…

    • It is God’s will to heal us every time. Your dad’s ailment (infirmity) was put on Jesus back when He died on the Cross. (Isaiah 53). Healing is a gift from God… purchased for us through the atonement.
      So meditate and get your soul to accept the finished work of Jesus on the Cross. As you Receive the atonement, there will be a manifestation in the physical!
      Remember, healing is a gift just as Salvation is a gift! We did not do anything to be saved, did we? We only accepted Jesus’ sacrifice on our behalf and boom! we were saved. Like wise healing which is a part of salvation. I

      I recommend Andrew Wommack’s teaching series “You’ve already got it”.

      IT will be life changing … God bless you.love you

  8. I am living in NJ and would like to find a healer in my area Please let me know?

    • God is your healer. Just go to Him and give your life to Him, and He can make all things possible. You don’t need a healer to come to your town, you need the Lord. He is the ultimate Healer and Physician.

      • Kim Byrd says:

        Right now I am going through some things that I cant seem to figure out. The pain I feel, just intensifies the more I think about it. When I pray at night, I feel safe and I realize everything will be okay. God will show me the way, and be my healer. He is Almighty. When I saw your message on this page I felt like it was for me.

    • BeReady says:

      Your message was four years ago-let us all know how you fared.
      It is true that Jesus is our healer, but God also put the “gifts of healings” in the Body of Christ, for a purpose. We should pray and seek God earnestly, fasting helps too, God will then either heal you OR tell you who to go to for prayer for healing.

  9. paula wright says:

    Wayne is my dear husband. He is a very committed Christian. He has trusted God’s word that Jesus is his healer. The enemy has started attacking him with numbness and pain in his legs.
