PRAYING FOR THE SICK- Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: James 5:14

I got a blast from the past today. I received a call from a brother we met at our first out-of-town preaching engagement on the other coast 30 years ago. He reminded me that his wife had a heart condition and that I prayed over her and she was healed. The problem was that it came back sometime later and they drove here to visit us. I again prayed over her again and she was healed and never had a problem since.

I should probably pray for the sick more often. In my early days I carried a bottle of anointing oil on me at all times and often prayed over people, so much so that sometimes people would approach me in public for prayer. Once a lady that was a nurse and several folks with her approached me at a restaurant where Laura and I were eating. They said hello and immediately ushered me out into the parking lot to pray for her as she had a blood clot in her leg. I anointed her with the oil and felt that I should curse the blood clout and command it to dry up. So I cursed it in the name of Jesus and commanded the blood clot to dry up now and when I said "now", she screamed and started jumping and running through the parking lot saying I'm healed, I'm healed. Once she calmed down I told her to go to the doctor to verify it and if she was healed then Jesus healed her. Then a few weeks later she called us and said that she went to a doctor and the he was amazed and did confirm that it dried up and was completely gone.

In Tennessee I preached on healing at two different churches that were not exposed to the concept of praying over the sick. In one church the lady had a problem with her arm she was the only one to come forward even though I sensed there were others in need of prayer. I prayed over her and told her to praise the Lord for her healing. A few days later we got a call and she was so excited that she too was screaming telling us that as she was making the biscuits at a local McDonald's and as she was working she felt the Lord tell her to take off her arm brace. As she did so she felt a powerful warmth go up her arm and immediately a lump on her arm disappeared and she was completely healed.

The second church was a lady with MS that had great weakness in her legs. I prayed over her and told her to lift her hands and praise the Lord for her healing. She timidly did so but this was new to her. Seemingly nothing happened but a few days later she was driving and felt some tingling in her legs. She pulled off the road, got out of the car and something shot up both legs and she began running around the car with her hands up praising God that she was healed. Jesus said to lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. Mark 16:17-18

In the early days I did pest control during the day and preached on the weekends. I went to a customer's house to spray and the lady had a bible on the kitchen table along with a ton of medicine bottles. Seeing the bible I asked her if she believed James 5:14 which I quoted and she said she did. As I did not have any oil on me that day I asked her if she had any oil handy. She said that she had Crisco in the cupboard so I anointed her with the Crisco oil in the name of Jesus and seemingly nothing happened.

Then maybe a month later Laura went to have her hair done at a local salon that a Christian friend recommended to her. It was at the end of the day and she was the only customer there. The owner was there doing her hair and as they were chatting and getting to know one another the owner nonchalantly said that she was doing a woman's hair the other day and the customer asked her if she knew Vince Rizzo. The owner quite surprised said that she did and then the customer proceeded to tell her that he was her pest control man and the last time he was there he asked her if she believed James 5:14. When the customer said that she did, she said Vince asked her if she had any oil. She told him all she had was Crisco in the cupboard and Vince went and got it, prayed over her and she said "I got healed and I can't tell my pastor that or my doctor that!!!!" LOL!!!

I have many of these types of testimonies. After this call today I think I need to start carrying my anointing oil again and be available to pray for those whom the Lord sends.

MIRACLES OF PROVISION

I have been sharing this story in class with some of the christian life coaches that I have been training, and they thought it was amazing, so I am writing It down to share here.

OUR FIRST AMAZING MIRACLE,

First off, I have to say that our ministry has had some amazing things happen in the last 30 years. The first miracle that was a sign and a wonder happened at the very beginning of our ministry. We were in Tennessee living in a school bus that we converted into a camper, and I had just finished preaching in a tent meeting, and it was freezing and the campground we were in was closing and we had no money and no place to go. We had mentioned in the meeting about it closing, and that we were praying to possibly go back to Florida. On the at last night at the campground we had no gas and little food, we received a knock on the door of the bus at 11 p.m. and it was the poorest couple that we remembered from the tent meeting they gave us some change on the way out of the meeting and she was wearing sandals in the middle of winter,The evangelist whose tent it was had asked folks to give us an offering as they left the tent and their offering stood out as the "Widow's Mite" in our minds. They wanted prayer, and we to be honest felt the need for prayer ourselves but prayed anyway, and they left. A few minutes later, we heard another knock on the door and it was the lady, she pushed a piece of paper in my wife’s hand without looking at it my wife thanked her for it. When they left my wife opened her hand, and it was a $100 bill. We were concerned that they gave it by mistake and were meaning to give $1, so we tracked them down, and they said that after exiting our bus, they saw a white dove fly out of the woods and land on our bus and seeing this as a sign from God they ran to obey God and give us $100. We stayed in Tennessee for 5 years with God providing in many miraculous ways but this was the most outstanding testimony.

MIRACLE TWO WE RECEIVE A 2 MILLION-DOLLAR PROPERTY

We eventually did go back to Florida, and we were running a homeless mission my dad started and I after much prayer was feeling that we needed to take some of these homeless men off the streets and disciple them for Christ. I had no money but felt that the Lord wanted me to start looking for a building anyway and not knowing anything about these things I approached a realtor friend from the Kairos prison team to come and look at a hotel I had found,and after looking at the property he offered to put down a deposit of $80,000, which was refused as the owner wanted the full price. Several months later, my friend mentioned that he could not sleep at night thinking of our small mission work, and that he had found a 2 million dollar 8-acre property with a hotel and restaurant and would I consider it. I said yes, and we begin a discipleship training program with this donated property. One interesting thing was that there was a bald eagle nest nearby, and we constantly saw bald eagles on the property which we loved and felt that it was a blessing from God because of the many scriptural references and that they are so majestic and rare.

THE MAKING OF POSSIBLY A THIRD BIG MIRACLE

While running this discipleship program, we were taking the men to a church in Fort Myers that was founded by a pastor from New Jersey with a mega church there, and he was opening a church here in Florida. We were at the time living in a trailer park running the mission and training center, and I found out that this pastor had a house in this huge amazing gated community. Now here is where it gets interesting. I said to myself kind of jokingly, someday I am going to live in that community, and I am going to live across the street from this pastor, and I am going to smile and wave to him from my house. 8 months ago the Lord opened the door for us to move into this community, and we are leasing a house, which is a miracle as they so rarely have anything but homes for sale.
One day, we were walking in a community about 3 blocks away from our house it is in the same development but has the more pricey upscale homes in it. Because of this, you cannot get in unless you walk in through a golf cart path which people do all the time. We walked past this huge home for sale, and we looked it up online and we were both in awe, and we said wow we could live there and make it a place for a pastor's retreat and also have room for our hundreds of ministry friends to stay while in Florida. It even has a prayer chapel, How many other people besides Christians would want a prayer chapel ? We both felt an excitement and a quickening in our spirits. However after thinking about the size and the cost of up keep we kind of let it go as it was perhaps to big of a miracle. A few months later, I was walking by myself at 7 am and when I passed this house, a huge bald eagle landed on the highest roof and just sat there looking at me. I have no idea if this means anything or not, but I decided to do some further research and the pastor I mentioned lived house across the street from this exact house. So I had said that someday I would live across the street from this pastors house and then I saw this eagle. So it is very interesting to say the least. The house is going for 6 million dollars. So please pray that if this is something that we are to do that the Lord will provide, and it will be another miracle in our lives. My wife will tell you that in the 30 years we have been together, she is amazed at how many things I have received by faith that I have only talked of receiving in a casual way.

Below is the video please watch it and let me know what you think. We have no way in the natural to make this happen I am just sharing this now and stating that we receive it by faith In Jesus Name. If this truly is God's plan He will make it happen and He will get all the glory. This is not a fundraiser just sharing regarding our amazing past and the possible amazing future pastors retreat.

“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,” Ephesians 3:20
