Marc Dupont, minister, prophet and revivalist, has in his book Healing Today (co-written with Anglican minister Mark Stibbe) described a creative miracle he experienced in the 80’s. By creative miracle, I mean a healing which involves the sudden appearence of something that previously did not exist, for example like when Jesus gave a man, who was blind from birth, his sight (Jn 9). In Dupont’s case, it concerned a clubfoot that transformed into a normal one  (pp. 130f.):

Clubfoot Transformed

A woman brought her young son, who had a clubfoot, to me for prayer at the end of a meeting. In fact, it was the last of four nightly meetings held while I was visiting a church in the mid-west of the United States. After four nights of extensive ministry I was very tired. So when she showed me his foot with the obvious deformity, my tiredness took over and I felt no faith whatsoever to pray for this five- or six-year-old boy.

As she explained that he could walk OK, but had never been able to run successfully in his life, my heart went out to him, but I still felt my tiredness upon me. To step into a faith mode and believe for the impossible seemed even more impossible at that point in time.

However, as I knelt down and began to pray for his foot, almost immediately right in front of my eyes it began to change shape. What had, more or less, appeared as a block of wood covered by skin began to change into a normal foot with toes, an arch etc, all in normal size and shape. It had taken place so quickly that I was a bit dizzy. I wasn’t sure whether I was actually seeing a miracle happen, or was imagining it. It took all about five seconds for the transition to take place.

The young boy immediately began running around in the room. He was running perfectly for the first time in his life. His mother was jumping up and down and yelling out. I was still kneeling down on the floor, trying to lay hands on this foot that was no longer there. I was in a bit of shock. I hadn’t ‘felt’ anything supernatural, or any power whatsoever. That is precisely what Zechariah meant, however, when he stated, ‘not by might (of man), nor by power (of our own), but by the Holy Spirit’.

Dupont is a man I deeply trust, he has come to our church in Sweden twice, and as you can see in the video above, he clearly connects healing with the Kingdom message of the Gospel (just like his mentor, Vineyard founder John Wimber, did) as well as with compassion and love. As I’ve written before, the gifts are meant to serve people, and Dupont is keen to do that and to support the hurt and broken by praying for their healing.

The Blind See

I got inspired by the testimony above and twittered about it. Soon enough, the missionary Andreas Cucca responded to me:

@helapingsten In february in Guinea, I saw how a blind man’s cloudy eyes became totally clear and he began to see. That took about two minutes.

I asked him for more information, and then he sent me the following testimony:

Cucca and the formerly blind guy

Cucca and the formerly blind guy

During a campaign in february 2012 in the town of Dabola, Guinea, a man from the Fulani people came to the meeting. He hade been blind for 12 years. During the meeting we preached the gospel and people responded for salvation. Like all other campaign nights we prayed also for the sick. We prayed on stage and commanded the diseases to leave the people, that the deaf ears would open, and that blind eyes would begin to see. After the prayer we said to the people to see what Jesus had done, we said “try to do that you could not do before” if you could not see – start to see.

Then we asked those who have experienced a healing to come forward and testify. The man that had been blind for 12 years came and said that he used to be blind, but now he could see. Both me and my father in law were very confused. When we looked into his eyes they were  really cloudy (cataract-like) and he sure enough looked blind. But he clearly showed that he could see. In about 2 minutes on the stage we saw his eyes turn from opaque to completely clear during the time he testified, and he had no problem to pinch my nose when we asked him to show that he had been healed.

Conclusion: God is good. Pray for more creative miracles! And if you’re still not convinced of this stuff, check out this video (which also includes some erasing miracles, when the Lord removes stuff, for example metal plates that surgeons sometimes place in people’s bodies):

    A testimony of multiple healings:

    I am amazed and so happy to see these things. I was taught a works based faith in concert with James 2, but far too often the supernatural was eschewed. Even some of us were told the supernatural accounts in the WORD were simply allegorical. Ah how crafty is the enemy robbing and stealing our faith but God is greater. Yes, the stories and video have ignited my faith. Please keep sharing and may God continue to bless you richly!

    Please pray for a woman. She was shot 8 times by her husband and lived. He shot her eye out but she is slowly gaining ground and relearning how to communicate. The husband is about to be sentenced. She was a young attorney (40). Also pray for my sister who is disabled due to a sleeping disorder. She has to be medicated to sleep. She has insomnia. The kind that never goes away. This came upon her about 2 years ago, after she had a hysterectomy.

  4. […] “Wow, where should I start? The blind see, the deaf hear, the lame walk, cancer tumours disappear! I prayed for a mute man in Guinea that hadn’t been able to speak since he was born, now he was between 20 and 30 years old and his first words were Jesus, hallelujah, amen. Another time I proclaimed that the lame were healed and a lame beggar outside the campaign area was instantly healed, everyone went wild when they saw it! And another time we had prayed that the blind would be healed and a man came to the stage and said that he used to be blind but now he could see. However, his eyes still looked really blurry so we wondered if he really was telling the truth, but he could grab my nose when I asked him and while he was there on stage, I saw with my own eyes how all bluriness disappeared and his eye became normal. It was a creative miracle!” […]

        Micael, I found your web site. I am a 70 year Christian, I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior in my mid 20’s. All of my life I have had terrible teeth. From childhood until today. There is not a good tooth in my mouth I have lost way over half of my teeth. And every remaining tooth is beyond repair by dental procedures. I have a poor fitting and worn-out partial that is over 50 years old, and it causes tongue scraping issues. I am so tired of what the enemy has done in my mouth. I hate my smile and actually my mouth has a downturn look from not wanting to show my ugly smile. I have met a wonderful widow who is a Christian and we are in the first stages of building a relationship with the potential for marriage. I am so embarrassed to met this person with my mouth in such a condition. I feel t is no coincidence that I came to this video. I have prayed for a miracle to to have a complete restored mouth with real teeth and healthy gums. Especially now that God has answered my prayer for a partner to end my loneliness. Today is Monday. A week ago today I prayed and told the Lord I was tired of being alone. That I did not want to live the rest of my days alone, but if I had to, it would be OK. God heard that prayer. Because on Tuesday the nst day, I met this wonderful person. We live in different states, but we have talked nearly non-stop for a week now. I believe the Lord has brought this person into my life and answered my prayer. I have sought God about my teeth for a very long time. I live on a very small income and have no insurances no money for Doctors, Dentists. I have to rely on God for so much. I am a healthy retired 70 year old, I am not on any medications at all. Barely take an aspirin. I have not been to a Doctor for about two years. I have only medicare. As I was saying, I have been asking Father God for a miracle for the full replacement of every tooth in my mouth. I prayed for years, Lord “out with the old, in with the new, 28 or 32!”. With this person now a potential partner, who I want to show smile and be able to kiss without being repulsed by them, I am ready for a miracle in my mouth. I have written to the TV show “The Doctors” telling them about my never being able to smile. I said to the Lord I think I have may be 3 ways to get new teeth, win the Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstake, go on the Doctor’s show or a direct miracle from YOU LORD! As I thought about it last night I looked on line for Miracles for Teeth and found your web pages. I admit I have trouble with my faith to believe. I need that to end also. Please pray for me or contact me? Thank you and God bless you and your ministry. RP
