Special Meeting at Open Arms Church, Livonia Michigan,
With Gordon Jensen, Prophetic Healing
Renowned Gospel Singer/Song Writer
John F. Miller
What a meeting! This is a report on a service my
wife and I were privileged to attend!
Introduction: Gordon is best known for the hundreds of
Gospel songs he's written, performed and recorded by most of the well-known
artists in Christian music. His signature song, "Redemption Draweth
Nigh" [he wrote in 1969] has been translated into many languages, giving
it international recognition and message in these end times that makes it more
relevant with each passing day!
first hand, the miraculous healing power of God, was a life changing experience
we'll never forget, which is why [to God be all the Glory] I felt compelled to
write this report.”
It's one thing
to hear about miracles, like testimonies we've become accustomed to on
Christian TV, yet quite another to witness them first hand for yourself!
Try and put yourself in our shoes . . .
Just imagine how we felt, in the midst of many miracles taking place all
around us, my wife whispers in my ear, [holding up & revolving her right
ankle that's been causing her pain for a long time] and says...
"Honey it's gone! There's no
more pain in my ankle! I've been healed!"
And now, from the beginning . . . When we drove up to the meeting, we had
to use the over-flow parking lot, as the main one was full. This was the
biggest crowd we'd ever seen at this church!
The meeting started with beautiful worship music, played and led by our
long-time friend, [Abe Fazzini, an exceptional key-boardist - also friend of
Gordon’s - we’ve known since the 60’s] then, with very little fanfare, the
Evangelist was introduced.
After a cordial greeting to all, including many old friends, Gordon sang a
few of his best known and loved songs with CD back-up, which we all enjoyed
very much. After a break, he finished his musical repertoire at the keyboard
before his message. In his introductory remarks…
He started out telling how in the late 80's/early 90’s he became
dissatisfied with "Church as usual" and began to seek the Lord for
more. More of God’s presence in the meetings. More than people coming to be
He spoke of a ‘pivital impartation of The Holy Spirit’ he received
in 1995 after which, he went through a two year process that completely changed
his ministry! Starting in 1996, he began to hear words from the Lord, with
specific instructions of things He wanted to accomplish in each meeting.
As he's been obedient to speak what the Lord gives him, (names of people and
ailments God has him call out) he's seen many thousands of people healed and
delivered from all manner of bondage, sickness and disease!
He then gave
details of some of the many miracles he's witnessed in his meetings (since it
all began with the first miracle in August of 96) in so many places around the
world. Here's one of the first he
shared . . .
> In one of several meetings he held in South Africa a few years back,
in a large church in Port Elizabeth. Following the prayer of agreement, [after he called out names & illnesses God gave him] he’s on the
platform while the musicians are playing, and all of a sudden . . .
A young teenaged
boy began to run and dance wildly all over the stage. He asked one of the
ministers why the young man was acting this way?
Above the band music, the minister shouted.. “He had no
hip,... He had no hip!” Turns out he was born with one hip
deformed so that the ball could never properly connect with the socket, [making
it extremely difficult to walk] and had just received a creative miracle . . .
new hip!” so no wonder he went wild.. for suddenly he was able to
run and dance for the first time in his life!
Another amazing testimony Gordon shared was a double miracle!..
> One name God gave Gordon, [for a meeting in Scranton, PA] was ‘Betty
Jean’. She was in the meeting, came forward when he called her name and told
how she’d suffered severe heart damage from an infection. Doctors said if she
didn’t have a heart transplant soon, [on waiting list] she would die, and
Betty Jean seemed more concerned for her daughter, who lived across
town and had just been diagnosed with cervical cancer. Gordon prayed [in agreement with the
congregation] for Betty Jean and her daughter.
after the service, the miracles began! Betty got home late from the meeting that night, and
immediately walked up the stairs to her bedroom.
When she got to the top of the stairs,
she realized she wasn’t winded, like she always became when she climbed the
stairs. So she went back down and up the stairs again...
She still wasn’t winded, so
she went up and down the stairs several more times, with the same result!
Realizing she’d been healed and . . .
Feeling more energy than she had in five years, Betty Jean got so excited
that she decided to clean her house right then, something she’d been unable to
do for a long time because of her heart condition.
The only problem? Running the vacuum cleaner woke up her husband, who right
away demanded to know what on earth she was doing! For he was sure her heart
would give out!
She told him, “I’m fine.. I’ve never felt better in my
life!” It was obvious to Betty Jean,
and soon to everyone else, that she had indeed received a creative miracle.. “A
When she went back to the doctor and
insisted on being re-examined, the doctor came out after a while, apologizing
and said.. “Betty Jean, we’ve really missed it with
you, you don’t need a heart transplant at all, your heart is just fine, you
have the heart of a young woman!”
> Not only did she get her own miracle,
her daughter was healed too, not having even been in the service! Pap-smears revealed
she was cancer free!
Eleven years later she testified that her
daughter was still cancer-free, and she herself, after a recent physical was
told again, “You have the heart of a young woman”!
Now to the
miracles in the service we’re reporting on, of which we’d estimate, [from those
lined up to testify of what God had done for them] there were at least 12 or 15
more, in addition to Phyllis’ ankle being healed. Here are just a few of them . . .
> An elderly lady, when Gordon asked her what had happened, joyously
held both hands high above her head for everyone to see, while repeatedly
opening and closing them.
She told how she’s had such bad arthritis she
couldn’t even open her thumbs, plus had carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists,
and now [as she demonstrated] she could open her hands with no problem and no
more carpal tunnel pain!
> A man declared, as he stomped his left foot on the floor, that he came
into the meeting [as we all noticed & loved ones confirmed] with such a bad
left foot and leg, he could hardly walk.
Suddenly he felt power surge through
it and he was instantly healed. Gordon asked him to walk quickly to the back of
the auditorium and back, which he did almost at a running pace, with absolutely
no pain or hesitation!
> Another gentleman told how he’d suffered with a condition for over a
year that made it very difficult for him to breathe. After the prayer of
agreement his lungs opened up and he could breathe easily!
> A minister’s wife said how she’d been suffering with depression for
some time, felt it lift and let her go!
> A couple, (long time friends of the Pastor) brought their son who had
seriously injured his shoulder a few months earlier. After trying various
treatments, he had been unable to find relief from the terrible pain he was
suffering. Praise God, he received a complete and total healing in the service
As more and more testimonies were shared, the atmosphere
became charged with the healing power and presence of the Lord, as we witnessed
the Great Physician touch so many that evening in Spirit, soul and body!
December 2014 up-date:
Since that first meeting, (and above report) we’ve attended many of Gordon’s meetings, including 3 services we scheduled for him this past May here in Michigan. Having now witnessed a hundred or more miracles in the 7 or 8 meetings we've been privileged to attend?! As a result, it has not only been personally transformational . . .
We received a mandate from the Lord, (both a Blessing and privilege) to serve and support Gordon’s powerfully
anointed ministry in any way we're needed. This led earlier this year, to us becaming his Ministry
Associate & Volunteer Scheduling Coordinator.
Having known Gordon, (also his parents and siblings)
since the 60’s and watched him be faithful to the ministry and call of God on
his life these many years, without hesitation we most highly recommend him to
your church or fellowship. I know your people will be greatly blessed, and will
thank you for having Gordon come.
