Only believe! If only we could hear the words of Jesus; in your life, in your problems today, if you will only believe, it is never too late. The wonderful thing about Jesus is that He won't turn anyone away, there is no rejection; whoever you are, if you will come to Jesus, He will not keep you waiting, He won't reject you; Jesus has time for you. People may tell you that your problem is too far gone, that it is too late for a miracle; Jairus was told in Mark 5.35, "Don't trouble Jesus anymore, your daughter is dead", but Jesus will say to you as He said to Jairus, "Don't be afraid, only believe'.

'The disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed His Word by the signs that accompanied it' (Mark 16.20). God has power, greater than anybody else; I've seen phenomenal miracles in my own life and ministry because of the power of God. The only evidence of the existence of God is through the miraculous: by faith we understand that the world was made, by faith we see miracles of healing. I cannot heal anyone, Jesus is the healer. When I am on crusade I dare to say, 'If what I am preaching is true, that Jesus is the Son of God, who died and rose again, then miracles will happen when you call upon Him.' And each time, the Lord confirms His Word by the signs that follow. I want to challenge you: when you know Him, when you REALLY know His character, as you would know a friend, then you will do exploits (Daniel 11.32).

Diagnosed with throat cancer in 1964, I faced a crisis in my life. I found myself constantly praying the same thing: "O God, I know You can heal, because of all the evidence in Your Word, as well as the other miracles which I have seen with my own eyes. But ... the problem is ... You can ... if You want to ... Is it Your will to heal me? All I am asking for is a positive yes or no." I picked up my Bible and read from Romans 8 verse 26, "We know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit himself maketh intercession for us ... according to the will of God." That was it! It came with certainty to me that God had said yes. I would be healed by a miracle.

Jesus said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My Name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." After the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. (Mark 16:15-20)

His Name is filled with power and glory. Upon hearing His Name, demons have to flee, sickness will be healed. In your biggest crisis, in the time when you feel that your life is at an end, call upon His Name and He will answer you. If only you would believe in Jesus, you would see the biggest miracle of your life.

I want you to learn the importance of prevailing in prayer. When I was in that communist prison, and the guards were cursing me, saying that I would never get out alive, I began to pray. This is how I prayed: 'O God, 2000 years ago, Paul and Silas were in prison, they prayed, and You caused an earthquake which broke open the prison doors and released their chains. O God, if You could do it 2000 years ago, I want You to do it now and set me free!' You know the story. God worked a miracle and sent the British Prime Minister. I want you to realise that You can have the same power with God when you prevail in prayer. This is what happened with Jacob in the Bible, he wrestled with God all night, toward morning he said, 'I will not let Thee go, except Thou bless me.' God responded, '...for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed' (Genesis 32:26-28).

'Jesus asked, "Who do you say that I am?" Peter answered and said to Him, "You are the Christ."' (Mark 8.29.) Jesus is not a babe in His mother's arms, nor is He just a prophet or only a good man, as some suggest - He is a God of power, of action, of authority. He's a Man real men can admire and follow! In churches I see images of Jesus as a powerless dead man on a cross. I know Jesus died, but when they put Him in a grave, it couldn't hold Him, the power of the Holy Spirit came into His dead body, He broke open that grave, He came out, He's alive! What kind of man is this? The grave cannot hold Him - the wind and the sea are obedient to Him - no demon spirit in hell can stand against Him - no human can resist Him! That's the kind of God we have!

I want to challenge you to come up higher, to a new level of faith! Mark 11 is so revolutionary, so powerful, it has changed my life! Jesus saw a fig tree full of leaves and He went to it hoping to find some figs (v13). But He found nothing but leaves. So what did Jesus do with the fig tree? He cursed it. The following day, Peter saw the dead tree; Jesus said to him, "Have faith in God! If you don't doubt in your heart but believe that what you say will happen, you shall have whatever you say!" Let me challenge you: if you speak in faith and authority according to the will of God, and don't doubt, you will be healed, your family will be blessed, your financial burden will move, even if those things are mountains in your life!

If you believe God, trust Him until He answers you! When you pray, believe that God will answer, believe for miracles, believe in the power of God. God never fails! I have been serving God for 75 years and my testimony is this, He has never failed me once! If I live another 100 years, God will never fail me! God cannot fail. God answers prayer! No, my life has not been easy, but through it all I've learned to trust Jesus and depend upon His Word. God Himself has said, "I will never fail you, I will never abandon you"; that is why we can say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid."

I want you to learn how to pray, and when you pray, how to get an answer. Recently I found myself asking the question we all ask, WHY? Why this? Why that? And I was asking, why is it that people pray and don't get an answer? Then it was as if the Lord said to me, "It's because they give up asking". The Scripture teaches: 'Keep on asking and it will be given to you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking reverently and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking, the door will be opened' (Matthew 7:7-8, AMPC).
