    Hebrews 5:12-14 (KJV) "For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil."

    Proverbs 27:17 (KJV) "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend."

    "A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver." Proverbs 25:11

    Every testimony of Jesus Christ working in someone's life is a life changing event that is supernaturally charged to change a person from A to Z & all for Christ's glory & honor to be showcased. It is a privelege to share a fantastic lifechanging testimony from Karen Williams, here with you today.

    Ten year ago, I was married, a mother of two sons, working in my life long career in human resources training and development for a nationwide bank, wrote their training manuals and traveled the state of Florida training professional bankers in numerous departments. I was known as the energizer bunny; a lean mean running machine. One day in my quiet time, the Holy Spirit lead me to read Psalm 3 and I read it a few times. Then, every day afterward, the Holy Spirit put it upon my heart to read, praying aloud Psalm 3 for two weeks.

    Praying God's word, It didn't make sense to me at the time. But, I knew that it was a God thing. That's about the only way to describe it. You know that you know that you know. Perhaps I was praying for someone else?

    On October 31st, I went to my Doctor because I had a stomach virus. Once there, she told me to go to the hospital immediately. She said that I had a blockage and needed an MRI pronto. They found that there was a blockage; my intestines had already burst, gangrene had set in; severe sepsis, pulmonary thrombosis, blood clots in major organs and sepsis shock. They admitted me into the hospital to run more tests.

    The pastor at the hospital would come visit me, we would pray daily and I told him that I was a born again, spirit filled, word carrying, word believing christian. He shook his head. He was from some other denomination. One day, as he was visiting, I looked him in the eye and told him “You know, I’m not afraid to die; after my last breath here on earth, I’ll take my first breath in heaven. Praise God, Jesus is my Redeemer, Lord, Savior and best friend & closer than a brother. But, know this … I’m not going anywhere, until God says it's time for me to go. God always has the final say so. That's who Karen is”. The Pastor smiled.

    Meanwhile, they informed me that they couldn't do surgery because my blood was too thin, they wouldn't be able to stop the bleeding because of the blood infection and sepsis shock. Basically, too dangerous and was told that I wouldn't survive surgery. But, at the same time my entire body was filled with blood clots, in all of my major arteries and veins, kidney spleen and stopping blood flow vital organs. The infection throughout my body had caused severe disseminated intravascular coagulation with 90% mortality rate and organ failure; leaving a 10% survival rate in my case. Six Specialists called my family in to say their last goodbyes.

    The blood clots throughout my body caused my heart to stop beating, my family had to leave because of code blue alarm, the Doctors had to resuscitate me with the paddles and finally my heart began to beat. Having no choice, they rushed me into surgery. The surgeons cut me from the top of my rib cage all the way down, removed 2/3 of my lower intestines, they didn't even sew me up; as they didn't expect me to survive. I was put on life support for a month.

    Then, by the hand of God, I woke up.

    The weirdest part for me was when people would ask "did you see a light”, laughingly, I said "no". All I heard was Karen preaching the word of God. Then I spoke what I heard myself speaking in my sleep:
    “Fear not, take courage, for I the Lord your God am with you. Absolutely, positively, no weapon formed against you shall be able to prosper. In Jesus mighty name.
    If God almighty be for you, what can stand against Him, what can mere mortals do to you. Though the enemy attacks you in one direction, they will scatter from you in seven. Greater is He, much, much, greater is He, that is in you than he that is of this world ... the Spirit of almighty God lives inside you. Stand still and see the Salvation of the Lord.

    Be still and know that I alone am God: you oh Lord are a shield around me, I am redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb and by Jesus stripes I am healed.
    My Jesus and the Host of Heaven sing over me. You lift me up out of the pit. You are the one who lifts my head high. You set me among princes; even the princes of your people. The Lord answered me from his holy mountain; where deep calls to deep. I lay down and slept. I woke up in safety, for the Lord was watching over me.

    The Lord Himself will bless you a thousand times over. I the Lord your God am your Healer, thy Great Physician, your Jehovah Rapha, your Healer;  Jehova Jirah, your Provider; Jehova Nissi, your Deliverer; Adonai your Strength; Eolhim all powerful and mighty; Yaweh, el Shadai, “I Am that I Am" who's mighty, mighty, mighty to save you.

    Where is another God like you, who pardons the sins of the survivors of his people. Yes, once again I ask for your mercy and you trample my sin under your feet. Amen Yes, slap all my enemies in the face on my behalf! Shatter the teeth of the wicked on my behalf! Yes, victory sweet, sweet victory comes from you, o Lord and may your blessings rest upon your people.

    Yes, I will send showers and showers of blessing just when you need it the most. Yes, I will rebuke the devour on your behalf and will restore all that the locust and canker worm have eaten and stolen from your life; every single morsel, double for your trouble.

    My word is yes and amen. Yes I will and Amen be it unto you my child … thus saith the Lord. Yes, Yes, Yes, I will do mighty miracles for you. Just like those I did when I freed the children of Israel. All the nations of the world will stand amazed at what the Lord your God will do for you.

    The enemy will come to realize what lowly creatures they really are, how insignificant and powerless. They will crawl like snakes from their holes, with fear and trembling when they come out to meet the Lord your God.

    In Jesus mighty name Amen.”

    These are just to name the word I remember. It doesn't matter if you remember the book and verse. What matters is that you plant God's word, deep into your heart, as a strong towering tree planted along his river of everlasting life. Rooted and abiding in him. Fruitful in every season under heaven. Amen!

    Yes, we are spirit ... filled with the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God intercedes and "speaks God's word on our behalf"; over our body when we cannot. God's Holy Spirit in us never dies! It's eternal. The Holy Spirit spoke the word of God, into my spirit man, the whole while I was on life support. Yes, while all the six Specialist were speaking curse and death over Karen; the Holy Spirit was speaking God's healing, blessing, life and resurrecting power over Karen. When I woke up, in my spirit man, I was singing “There is power, power, wonder working power, in the Blood of the Lamb".

    Imagine, I woke up praising God! Hallelujah! Glory! God is awesome and His Spirit is alive in us. Amen!

    The next thing that happened, is that countless hospital personnel came to my room, one by one, their eyes wide open; introducing themselves, letting me know that they had cared for me while I was in ICU on life support.

    It was weird, they all knew me so well and I didn't recognize any of them. But, I could see by the look on their faces; all of them were in awe, they knew that they were looking at a miracle of God. Not only is she alive, she's sitting up in bed, smiling and talking!! Praise God!

    My Doctor came in smiling so big; he literally excitedly jumped on the end my bed and hugged me. He informed me, that the man across the hall from me in ICU had passed away from the same surgery. He said that they're all amazed that I survived, after all that my body endured that month.

    My hospital Pastor friend heard that I was alive and immediately came to my room. He let me know that he was in the room along side the Doctors, praying for me, as they worked to resuscitate me. Then, I asked the Pastor to read Psalm 3 out loud to me. He read: Psalm 3 …
    “O Lord, I have so many enemies, so many are against me. So many are saying, “God will never rescue him" … but you, O Lord, are a shield around me, my glory and the one who lifts my head high. I cried out to the lord, and He answered me from his holy mountain. I lay down and slept. I woke up in safety, for the Lord was watching over me. I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies who surround me on every side. Arise, O Lord! rescue me, my God! Slap all my enemies in the face! Shatter the teeth of the wicked! Victory comes from you, O Lord. May your blessings rest over your people.”

    Afterward, I told him that the Holy Spirit had lead me to pray aloud Psalm 3 every morning, two weeks before ever got sick. I asked him, "what part of Psalm 3 do you see resembles anything that happened to me"? Immediately, he responded, the verse reading “I lay down and slept. I woke up in safety, for the Lord was watching over me."

    Yes, for me it seemed that I went to sleep and woke up, not realizing I had been asleep all those weeks, like a dream. The Pastor was amazed!

    God knew exactly what was going to happen before it ever happened. He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning to the end of all things, the end to the beginning of all things and everything in between. Amen yes, the Lord had me pray his word over myself. For his word shall not return void unto the place in which he sends it and will perform his purposes in his divine completion and perfection.

    Every part of Psalm 3 is exactly what I endured. The Pastor told me that he was in awe of God and that he'd never seen God give a person his word in advance. Yes, God even showed a man of God something new! Hallelujah. He's a wonder ya know and his wonders never cease. Amen!

    Then, by the grace of God, they cancelled the $300,000 hospital bill for Karen. Can you imagine that? What a unbelievable blessing. Thank you Lord. Glory!

    Yes, I thank God every morning to have lived these past 10 years. Just like he did for King Hezekiah, when he turned the sundial backward 15 years to prolong his years. Amen! So, thankful to raise my sons, watch them graduate school, go to the wedding and all the wonderful blessings yet to come.

    Yes, God is so very, very, very good. Not enough very's in my vocabulary for good. I thank him for allowing me to see his goodness in the land of the living. Down on the ground, while I’m still walking around. God overtakes us, knocks us down and blows our mind with his goodness!

    The word teaches us that we overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. Thank you Jesus, for you alone have carried me through all my years. Yes, we hold onto Jesus; for Jesus is holding us, carrying us in his arms. Leading and guiding us all the days of our lives. We, cling to His word and by God's gift of faith, He allows us to "walk on his word".

    Our lives are his stage in this lost world. He gives us a front row seat to his awesomeness, grace, mercy, faithfulness, favor, unfailing love, everlasting love, loving kindness, agape love, his splendor, glory, majesty and power in this time and place.

    Thank you Jesus for loving me, for blessing me, saving my soul and making me whole. Thank you Jesus for your redeeming blood covers me. Thank you for you make it so simple for us. You patiently wait for us to come unto you. To ask, believe your word and that you're more than ready, willing and able to do all things and receive your blessings, as they manifest and are realized in our life.

    Ask, believe and receive. To God be all the glory, honor and praise. Forever and ever. Amen!
