In Acts 10:38, God's words say, "How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, who went about doing good and healing all those who were oppressed by the devil for God was with Him." The same Jesus who healed people over 2,000 yeas ago is still in the healing healing business until now through the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus is alive and He loves His people with an everlasting love. "He is the same yesterday, today, and forever!"-Heb. 13:8.

In Mark 10:46-52, we read, "Then they came to Jericho. And as He was leaving Jericho with His disciples and a sizable crowd, a blind beggar named Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, was sitting by the roadside. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me. And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent.But he kept crying all the more, Son of David, have pity on me!" And Jesus stopped and said, "Call him here." So they called the blind man, saying to him, "Take courage, get up! He is calling you." Throwing aside his cloak, he jumped up and came to Jesus. Jesus said to him in reply, " What do you want me to do for you?" And the blind man replied to Him,"Master, I want to see!" And Jesus said to him, "Go your way; your faith has saved you." Immediately, he received his sight and followed Him on the way."

Anyone who came to Jesus for healing, He healed them. He is a God full of compassion for His people.

Last April 2018, I had the privilege to speak and to minister during the Hispanic Catholic Charismatic Conference near Portland, Oregon. As I was about to exit from the Auditorium where the Conference was held, a family came up to me and asked me if I could pray for a young girl who was with them. The husband and wife told me that their daughter, Lupe was blind in one eye and she had also been deaf mute since birth. They told me that she is 17 years old. I laid hands on Lupe and I commanded her blind eye to see in the mighty Name of Jesus. I asked the Lord Jesus to apply His precious blood in her blind eye. I also rebuked the deaf-mute spirit to go from her in Jesus' Name and commanded her to hear and to speak in the precious Name of Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit. Lupe was able to see on both eyes and to hear and to speak for the first time in her life. The entire family was jumping up and down, praising God!!I'm sure, Jesus, the Divine Healer, was glorified through Lupe's healing.

In mid August 2018, I spoke and conducted a Healing Service during the West Virginia Catholic Charismatic Convention in Charleston, West Virginia. There was a 6-year old boy who had been legally blind on his left eye since birth. His name is Aiden. Aiden's mother, Lindsay, told me that Aiden had almost no vision in his left eye. His vision in his left eye was 20/300. Aiden had no depth perception. His doctor told Lindsay that Aiden had to wear eyeglasses for the rest of his life. We prayed over Aiden and I asked the Lord Jesus to open his left eye. I prayed a "build up" prayer for him, meaning I asked the Lord Jesus to grant Aiden brand new lenses, brand new pupils, brand new cornea, brand new optic nerves, brand new inner eye. Afterwards, I asked Aiden to cover his right eye tightly with his right hand while I kept a distance from him. Then, I asked him to follow the movements of my hands to test his eyesight. He was able to follow every movement of my hands that I made. Aiden's grandmother took him to his eye doctor two days later to have his vision checked to confirm his healing. She told the doctor about what happened to Aiden two days before, that Aiden was prayed over during the Catholic Charismatic Conference and that Aiden was able to see in his left eye. The doctor told them after he checked Aiden's left eye that his vision had improved to 20/20 with glasses and 20/25 without glasses. Furthermore, the doctor told them that, after 3 months, he feels Aiden may not need to wear glasses ever again.! The doctor also explained to Aiden that he believes that God heals and that He uses people in the healing ministry as well as doctors to assist Him to heal people. Praise God! The doctor believes in the Healing power of the Divine Physician!

Over and over again, I witness signs and wonders, healings and miracles in Jesus' Name through the power of the Holy Spirit. Over 70% of Jesus' ministry while He was still walking on this earth was spent on healing the sick. Jesus healed His people by the power of the Holy Spirit. The ministry of Jesus while He was still walking on this earth, primarily the healings and miracles, were attributable more on the result of the power of the Holy Spirit in Him and were not so much on His Divine Nature. Jesus was fully God and fully man, but in His humanity, He had to rely on the power of the Holy Spirit to do what He did. In Luke 4:14-15, we read, " And Jesus returned in the power of the Holy Spirit into Galilee, and report concerning Him went out through the surrounding country. And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all." "But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you." Here, Jesus was of course, referring to the Holy Spirit.

Everyday, I always ask the Lord Jesus to guide me and to fill me with His Holy Spirit. I ask Him to empower me always so that I can do the works that He wants me to do through Him, because without Him, I can do nothing at all. In Luke 11:13, Jesus says, "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?"

Come, Holy Spirit, come and enkindle in us the power of your love.!!!
