We are working on getting the time to interview Chris Gore, but this is great. These are the things we were going to ask him. Great answers! My favorite is when he was asked how to see healing or an increase in your ministry and Chris says. “Use your gift!”
Our friend Tyler Johnson has a new book called,
Earlier we interviewed Tyler, who was the founder of the “Dead Raising Teams”
You can also read a report courtesy of Tyler about raising the dead in Cracker Barrel Restaurant here.
You can read more about Tyler and One Glance Ministries at their website.
We were going to interview Brandon, Ryan and Dennis as part of a new initiative, however until we can do that this is a great article written by Brandon that answers some of the questions I would have asked. Great work Brandon.
This is a long overdue post…
Keep in mind these are principles, not formulas. They’re good to start out with if you’re learning, but you will realize that every person is different and you will eventually learn to cater differently to each situation.
1.) Act normal (in speech and action; speaking “Christianese” or being shocked with bad language usually doesn’t help)
2.) Be genuine
3.) Be comfortable (this comes with practice)
4.) It will only be awkward if you are awkward. Don’t be awkward. (also comes with practice if you’re not an extrovert)
When I’m on the streets, I try to avoid asking “would you like prayer?” or “Can I pray for you” because I don’t know what preconceived idea they have of “prayer” or if they have been previously offended or hurt by the religious community. If you don’t ask, it’s very hard to get rejected.
I usually avoid the word “prayer” until after they are healed.
Obviously, sometimes if I feel it is more appropriate to ask:
“Hey do you need prayer for anything?”
or… “Hey is your back bugging you? Let me pray for you”
If you must ask, trying using “let me pray” instead of “can i pray.” The former carries more authority and people will respond more to that.
If people still reject me, I will say something like, “Well hey, what’s your name?” *hand shake* “Be well anyway.”
“these signs will follow those who believe… they will lay hands on the sick, they will recover.” – Mark 16:17-18
It doesn’t say that they will lay hands and “they will have to pray” before they are made well.
It says they will lay hands.
A handshake is laying on hands.
Our friend Chris, in Finland demonstrated this a few times with someone who didn’t want healing, so instead of just saying “oh ok, nevermind then” Chris just put his hand on the guy’s shoulder and said, “ok, be well.”
The guy later went to his doctor and found out that he was completely healed. To my knowledge, this happened on 3 different occasions with 3 different sicknesses and he was healed each time, just like that.
Here is a short script of what typically might happen:
If I see someone with a visible need (a limp, cane, crutch, cast), I genuinely ask,
“Hey what happened?” or for younger folks, “Hey dude, what happened?”
They’ll proceed to tell me, and usually I’ll ask,
“Well does it hurt right now?”
If they say “yes,” then I’ll usually say:
“Here, let me show you something” or
“Here, check this out” or
“Here, let me see your hand real quick” or
“Let’s take care of that right now”
As I say that, I hold out my hand to shake theirs, and 95% of the time, they give me their hand. I either do that, or I’ll just put my hand on their shoulder and then start commanding the sickness/problem to go.
And then I’ll usually ask:
“How’s it feeling?”
“Check it out!”
“Bend your (body part)”
“Do something you couldn’t do before”
They will test themselves out and then report back. When they have been healed, it’s an open door for me to preach Jesus. Also, when they’re healed, it builds rapport if they are with friends or family who are skeptical.
Remember, these are just basic principles. It usually doesn’t happen like this because it varies on the person, their age, who they’re with, and other factors like that.

Brother Jaren keeps it simple. I love how tangible he makes it. He speaks about faith and doubt, and how he grows out legs in Jesus name with little faith. He testifies about just loving on people, getting drunk in the Holy Spirit and pouring out miracles on some folks. Legit! Keep it coming Bro!

The original videos: BrotherJaren Youtube Channel
Randy teaches and testifies about raising the dead. He talks about how simple it is and how it is simply part of sharing the good news and is evidence of God’s power. He talks about how it doesn’t take ‘hyper-faith’ to raise the dead. He shares personal stories one of which includes raising a lady from the dead who had rigor mortis set in. Wow!
I love how simple she makes it. Faith faith faith. Nothing more. The healings, the wisdom, the faith the simplicity. It will cost you everything and in return you will really live. WOW!
My friend Joel Jackson did a short message and demonstration on overcoming fear in street healing and evangelism. Check it out.
- Step outside the church – start a revolution!
- Don’t assume what the person you are going to talk to is thinking – be naive!
- Be intentional about talking with people – approach people with the intent to talk about God!
In this video Brother Jaren shares some testimonies of when he went to Bethel Atlanta. So cool. He shares his heart about healing and what he encounters when he goes out. He talks about what he calls ‘Jesus in a Jaren suit” and how not to be discouraged when you don’t see healing. Great word. I love this dude.
Jaren, your heart rocks. Thank you for your videos they are really encouraging to our readers.
My friend Brandon posted this on his YouTube channel, I love it it reminds me of why we do what we do:
This clip is from Jesus Culture Dallas in 2008.
Bill talks about how Jesus was sent to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8), and because He also sent us to do the same thing (John 20:21), we should also be destroying the works of the devil wherever we go.
“It’s all about becoming a generation that can authentically display who Jesus is”
“If you want to know what God’s like, look at Jesus”
“He’s in you as a river, not a lake”
“Sometimes we pray in the place of obedience..prayer is important but it’s never to substitute obedience… He said heal the sick”
“Never go to bed at night without blood on your sword”
The full version of this message can be found at:
If Jesus’ life, death and resurrection are not enough and you need more inspiration or a motivation to go and get Jesus what He paid for, this is it. Bill talks about the will of God when it comes to healing and how it affects heaven when people make excuses. The church was purposed to equip and deploy, through wisdom and understanding. However we sometimes spend so much time equipping, imparting, encouraging, etc. and we forget to go out. We need courage to take what we hear and do something about it. Often we are too afraid of failure and rejection to actual pursue what we know is true. It is time for the body of Christ to rise up and follow our head, Christ. Lets go get what He paid for.
Mattt Sorger and Patricia King discuss the role of angels in healing and miracles.

This is the reason we started HealingHerald.org in the first place. I know there is a post like this here already, but I loved this version.
Bill shares with BSSM students about the power of the testimony, that each time we speak of the work of God in our lives, our words carry prophetic grace for the testimony to be duplicated.
“The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” – Revelation 19:10
Bill’s newest book, Release the Power of Jesus, actually covers this specific topic in-depth:

The full version of this video can be found here:
Curry Blake effectively destroys much of what the charismatic church teaches on healing and the power of God, but also empowers the listener to realize that ALL things are ours in Christ and that it is not for us to wait for some “leading of the Spirit” to pray for the sick…that it is 100% our responsibility to do the works Jesus told us to do without hesitation and without any specific instruction from God to do so.
“Many Christians are waiting for a phonecall from God when He’s already given them a letter.”
If you listen to these messages and apply them to your life, it is a guarantee that you will see unprecedented breakthrough in the area of healing, deliverance, etc. But it is also guaranteed to make religious people really angry!
He exposes a lot of misunderstandings and bad doctrine about “generational curses”, “anointings”, “mantles”, and “impartation” that much of the charismatic church teaches…all things that give Christians excuses to not do what Jesus said to do.
If you are looking for practical, powerful, consistent, and effective ways to see the Kingdom of God demolish the works of darkness in your life and the lives of those around you, get this stuff into your life and pass it on!

This is a video clip of Frances’ leg growing 1.5 inches at a Bill Johnson Conference in Harrogate, England. She gave her testimony the next day to the whole conference as to the reality of the healing, has seen this video clip and endoreses/verifies it. The miracle (as it is a creative miracle) happened at the end of the Healing On The Streets seminar. Mark Marx of the Causeway Vineyard, N. Ireland, was used in this. Video Clip was taken by Revd Peter Cunliffe, who interviewed Frances immediately after the miracle.
Don’t be cynical! Jesus still does this kind of stuff! (increasingly, in fact!)
One week on Fran’s healing is now a BBC News Item. YOu can read about it (and hear her own radio interview) here.
Some of the craziest miracles I have ever heard! Seriously! WOW. A woman’s face deformity gets healed after her face gets re-molded, but the biggest miracle is what happened in her heart. She says: “Now I know you love me!” Watch this video for more including how entire villages saved and healed. Dr. James Maloney shares out of Acts 5. He discusses how we step into greater dimensions of a release of power. He shares many powerful healing testimonies from around the world.
Read about these and other miracles in his book: “Dancing Hand of God”
Hey guys I wanted to post this because I think it has great answers for people who have been contending for a miracle and haven’t seen one. Eric Johnson prays for healing all over the world and has seen God perform countless miracles and yet he hasn’t seen breakthrough yet for his own healing.
Listen to Eric answer the question: “How do you see dozens of people healed of hearing loss, while still waiting for your healing?” Just amazing!
iBethel.tv Revival Fireside Chat with Eric Johnson
Let’s continue to contend for him: In fact, ears be released in Jesus name, we give you permission to be restored from the curse. We speak to the cells saying “BE HEALED!” in Jesus name.
If you want to join with me in prayer, leave your prayer as a comment/reply below and share this with others so we call in the troops.
Kevin Dedmon shares a testimony from his son Chad Dedmon’s youth group about walking on water. Very cool.

Chris Gore releases a powerful word on how to see healing when you pray.
Chris preaches about what it takes to see healing when you pray. Excellent teaching about supernatural healing. Chris is teaching at Bethel Church, Redding, CA. “Healing is simple!” he says. You don’t have to achieve it just receive it.
The title is “Living Unbalanced”.

Oldie but a goodie. “Either the payment was sufficient for all sin, or no sin. Either the payment was sufficient for all sickness, or no sickness. Healing and forgiveness work in tandem throughout the scripture…”
