In 1994 as I ministered for three months in Siberia, a lady pleaded with me to pray with a sick relative in the hospital. There was one man who told me that his back was broken, so I laid my hands on him, immediately all the pain left, he straightened himself and got up and ran off to make a cup of tea for me. By now the news of what God was doing was spreading, and another man who was almost blind came from a different room. As I laid my hands on his eyes, they opened and he could see. Someone brought a Bible which was by the side of one of the beds and he read it excitedly, shouting in his enthusiasm for all to hear, "I can see, look I can read!"

God will use those troubles, those tribulations, those difficulties, those everyday problems that you have in your life to speak to you. When I think of the number of troubles I have had - being in a communist prison for a year, having cancer twice - God uses every circumstance to bring glory to His Name; He uses the problems and the difficulties in our lives to show us that He works miracles today!

There is only one solid rock and His Name is Jesus! It is so important at the beginning of this year to resolve that you are going to trust God no matter what may come. None of us know what will happen in 2017, but we can decide ahead of time that our hope is built upon Jesus; He is our answer to every problem; He is our hope and deliverer; Christ is everything. 'On Christ the Solid Rock I stand; all other ground is sinking sand.'

John the Baptist was searching for the Messiah; he was always talking about this Man who would redeem the world. I believe that John was searching in the same way that many of you are searching. He wanted to know the truth. He wanted to know reality. John had heard about Jesus, so he sent His disciples to ask, 'Are You the Messiah, the One who will redeem the world?' John's doubt might have arisen from his own circumstances. Like John, I too have been in prison, left feeling abandoned and forsaken, but through it all, there was a hunger deep in my heart for Jesus, to know the reality of His power. I don't want empty religion or ceremony, I want Jesus, the Son of God, who can break every chain and set me free!

They came to Jesus and asked the question, 'are You the One we've been searching for?' Jesus turned to them and said, 'Tell John what you have seen: the blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the Good News is proclaimed to the poor.' - That is your answer. Jesus didn't reply with words but with action. The miracles are the evidence that Jesus is the promised Messiah!

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)
