    he Baptism in the Spirit's effectiveness in reactivating baptism consists in this: finally man contributes his part -- namely, he makes a choice of faith, prepared in repentance, that allows the that allows the work of God to set itself free and to emanate all its strength. It is as if the plug is pulled and the light is switched on. The gift of God is finally "untied" and the Spirit is allowed to flow like a ftragrance in the Christian life.

    During the night between Friday and Saturday, in the early morning hours of 10 June 2017, the Lord called back to Him a great man, Father Peter Hocken. He died at the age of almost 85. He was a servant of God, a friend, a priest who loyally served the Body of Christ until his last breath, all the world round. The Lord gave him an extraordinary intellect and wisdom, together with the experience of baptism in the Holy Spirit. He also received from God the talent and ability to provide specific and comprehensible theological explanations and descriptions of spiritual experiences that are taking place within the Church, notably after the Second Vatican Council.

    "I have a dream," he began, "that one day on the red hills of Georgia, sons of former slaves and sons of former slave-owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. "I have a dream my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

    We all know, based on our personal experience, that the cooperation with most intelligent people is not often easy. These people usually do not establish friendship easily. It is interesting also that university graduates with an honour degree usually do not fit in to the working environment in the best way and that their high intellect is of a little help in overcoming personal or marriage crises.

    The aim of the “Jesus Heals” prayer gatherings is experiencing the fact that God is Love. He is Love that wants to give itself to other people. God wants to show us His mercy even through healing, signs, wonders, and miracles.

Story - Harriet Coombe
Something better than healing

My story starts with a dramatic, tragic beginning.

A month after I was born in England, my two-year-old brother drowned in a swimming pool.

My family’s world completely crumbled and my foundational years were marked with grief, fear and despair.

Despite not being people of faith, my parents took strength from each other and chose to create a loving and supportive environment for me and my younger brother and sister.

When I was six, we emigrated to Australia - a new beginning for our family. We were settling into a new normal but I remember my mum was always searching for something. I remember her “activating” crystals that we were forbidden to touch and reading New Age books in an aim to find hope, peace and strength.

When I was 10 I met a girl at school who invited me to her church’s pancake day. I didn’t know much about church, but I knew I loved pancakes, so I was excited to attend.

The following Sunday, the family again offered to take me to church, and it wasn’t long before my brother started coming along too - giving my parents the morning off to have a sleep-in.

At some point my parents decided they should check out this church to make sure my brother and I were being looked after and not being taught things they didn’t agree with. There they met Jesus, and found the hope, strength and peace they were looking for.

Life in my house looked different after that. The crystals and New Age books were gone - my parents knew they had found the truth, they had new strength, and they raised my siblings and me to know and love the Lord.

I put my faith and trust in Jesus around this same time. I was a very diligent child and loved to study my Bible and pray. I have always been bubbly and happy, but I also had a lot of worries, which I poured out to the Lord. I was scared something bad would happen to my siblings, afraid of more tragedy hitting my family. Despite my love for God, I could not seem to get my fears under control and they continued to plague me.

When I was about 17, I had my first panic attack.  It came out of nowhere - my heart was racing, my vision was blurry and my body was shaking.  I felt out of control. This was the start of what would become an almost daily occurrence, and I was soon diagnosed with panic disorder.

I begged the Lord to take away these attacks, to be freed from fear and be able to live a confident, peaceful life.  I wish I could say He took my anxiety in a flash and I was healed.  But my journey was not like that. I continued to battle anxiety. And it was a ‘battle’.

Not long after I married my wonderful husband Josh, I felt caught in an anxiety spiral. I poured my heart out to the Lord and He gave me a picture. I was on a battlefield and I was cowering in fear while the battle raged on around me. I looked around for something to fight with and in front of me was my Bible and my prayer journal. I felt God showed me that I had all I needed to fight the anxiety.

So I continued to fight. I was determined not to let it hold me back and, with God’s strength, I chose to live my life in spite of the attacks, even when my voice shook or my heart raced.

They slowed me down at points, but they didn’t stop me. I worked as a journalist in a busy newsroom. I spent time as a missionary, singing and preaching God’s Word in front of crowds of people. And more recently I have worked as a school chaplain, helping children facing similar battles to what I did. As a child, I didn’t think I’d be able to do any of these things, but in God’s strength I can.

In 2019 I attended a conference that God used to transform my life and prepare me for a big storm that was about to break on our family. At this conference I learned that there is something better than healing and that is God’s presence. Instead of focusing on receiving God’s healing from fear, I started focusing on seeking God’s presence. God’s presence casts out fear and brings peace.

A week after this conference, my generous, loving, godly dad was diagnosed with cancer. He passed away six weeks later. During this time, I cried out for God to heal my dad. Instead, he took him into His presence - the place of ultimate healing.

I now no longer battle panic attacks. There are times I still feel worried or afraid, but I’ve learned where I find peace - in the presence of God. My life is no longer marked by fear, but by God’s peace and joy.
