My friend Zach and I went to Mt. Shasta City, California for a backcountry snowboard hike. Zach and I asked a lady in the parking lot to take our picture after we finished riding down the mountain and ended up starting a conversation with her. She told us about neck pain she’d had for twenty-eight years and that she’d come to Mt. Shasta for healing because it is known as a New Age mecca. She told us about her long and traumatic history in New Age and the occult. At some point in the past a New Age teacher had put a curse on her and she’d been traumatized ever since with nightmares and debilitating pain that only allowed her to get out of bed for three hours per day. She couldn’t even hold her neck up properly. She said her pain was at a level twelve out of ten!
Zach and I prayed with her and at first she felt no difference in her pain level. I felt God tell me to speak to her heart so I told her God loved her so much He sent me all the way from my homeland of Australia to Mt. Shasta to bring healing to her. As I spoke these words she was unable to stand under the weight of God’s love and power working in her body and fell down in the gravel parking lot.
As we prayed for her she began to experience new freedom in her heart and mind as God’s Spirit filled her. I asked her friend Wally to lay hands on her and command the pain to leave in Jesus’ name. He got emotional and started tearing up. It was crazy!
She then told us of the imaginary axe in her back from the curse. As we prayed and broke the curse off of her, I symbolically removed the imaginary axe from her back. After twenty minutes, she stood up and was completely healed and free from all the oppression she had been carrying. Her neck was straight, her posture was aligned and her eyes were sparkling. Jesus touched her in her core and gave her a total overhaul. It was truly an astonishing encounter with God and His unfailing love!
