I haven’t been living this consistently myself, but I am heading in this direction. Fasting is powerful, as I have pointed out on this website in other places, but a “fasted lifestyle” is also very powerful. To live a fasted lifestyle means never eating all you want, but only what you need. It helps you […]
We are living in an age when some discount the
miracles of God as nonexistent. Multitudes today have
a religion, a form of godliness, but know nothing of the
power of Christ to transform lives. Religion has been
formal and ritualistic, devoid of all feeling and emo-
tion, based on an intellectual knowledge of Christ
without the benefit ora personal encounter with Him.
It is not enough to know of Christ. You must have a
personal encounter with Him. You must have been in
His presence and have been changed by His power. It is
a life-changing experience!
I praise and worship
the Lord for His
blessings and for healing
me in March, 1972. I was
not a Christian at the
time and worked at a paint shop. I had taken medicine
for a long time because of bad colds. As I drank wine
and took the medicine, the disease grew worse and
worse. Finally I lost so much strength in my legs it was
difficult to walk straight.
About three years ago, I had an
unusual pain and began to run a
fever. I went to the hospital for an
examination, and after the X-rays
and tests were completed the doctor
told me I had tuberculosis and
cancer. I thought I would die soon,
and I became very depressed.
In May, 1974, my little son began having symptoms
that indicated he was not well in body. He had an un-
usually high temperature and lacked energy. Feeling
concern, I put him in the Kyanghee University
Hospital for diagnosis, but after an extensive examina-
tion the doctors could find nothing wrong. After I paid
the $500 bill, he was discharged from the hospital yet
the symptoms remained, so we began regular
treatments at an Oriental clinic. He seemed to have so
little strength so we gave him powdered antler and a
special juice medicine every day.
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.
When I graduated from Bible school and began my ministry, you encouraged me to seek the power of the Holy Spirit through fasting and prayer. So, beginning January I, 1974, I decided to fast for ten days. Before this time I had fasted for one or two days, but this was the first fast of any length I had attempted. On other fasting occasions after three days my strength would be gone, but God gave me special strength during this fast, and I was able to minister regularly in the chapel at the prayer mountain.
My son who is 3 years old was suffering from loose motion and high fever. He was under medication but no relief came. His doctor stopped medicines and started giving injections but again my child was not fully healed, so the doctor decided to admit my son in hospital. During this time, I had a weird dream. I saw a cow with sharp horns trying to harm us. It first scared my husband, then it went to harm my son, I told the cow with strict and loud voice saying ” Don’t even think of harming my son, otherwise u see what I’ll do.
Wise words from Dr Ja Shil Choi, from her book "Korean Miracles":
Many scientists are forecasting that a wide variety of serious problems will be plaguing the earth by the year 2,000. These problems will be greater than at any other time in the history of man. Among these will be the problem of food shortage due primarily to the lack of resources and the population explosion. Some scientists insist that nearly one billion people will be starving at that time.
Methods of Fasting – Chapter 4 – Korean Miracles
We have learned about the wonderful blessing and power that comes through fasting and prayer. Let us now specifically study the method for fasting. Though there is great blessing in fasting, if one doesn't have the basic knowledge as to how to fast, he will not obtain the desired results.
