We can live supernaturally in a natural world. That is one of the tenets of Pastors Mike and Judi Magel’s lives, and of their new book Angels & Miracle Healings: True Stories of God’s Power, Presence, and Divine Intervention.
It is a collection of Bible teaching and modern-day testimonies of not only the presence and employment of angels, but also miraculous healings!
As Senior Pastor Tonia Shroyer describes, “Angels & Miracle Healings was birthed from the hearts of two people who, after 58 years of marriage, are still answering the call that Jesus speaks to all of us – to follow him.”
She jokes that “even though they are more than 25 years older than me, I often have to run to catch up!”
First: Get the Lie Out
The Magels note that their first book, God Shots: Preparing Yourself for Dr. Jesus to Lead You Into the Operation of the Gifts of Healing, gave a “Scriptural foundation” to minister healing to others. That Scriptural foundation is continued as the they explore the four reasons people don’t receive their healing: fear, lack of faith, unworthiness, and lack of knowledge.
Second: Put the Truth In
The Magels then combat each of those areas and lies that the devil tells with the truth of the Word of God!
“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 ESV
The Magels take the reader on a treasure hunt through the Bible, delving into Scripture that explains what is available and what God’s will really is when it comes to healing.
Third: Bulk Up on Testimonies!
Finally, the Magels present firsthand accounts that “healing is available to you, both in ministering to others and receiving the healing!”
Tonia explained, “They know that testimonies serve as catalysts that will bring us face-to-face with the signs, miracles, and wonders that are so needed today.”
“…Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Messiah. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down. They triumphed over [the accuser] by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony…” Revelation 12:10-11 NIV
Mike announced it one time from the Christian Family Fellowship platform that they were gathering testimonies about angels and healings, and the responses started flooding in!
You can read about how people quit smoking, were cured of cancer, got their sight back, recovered from traumatic brain injuries, and had livers restored.
And these aren’t stories from hundreds of years ago, these are tales of people that are still alive and living proof of their healing! Sometimes, they knew the Bible, and sometimes they just knew Jesus could do a miracle.
“As she was waiting for the specialist to see her in the exam room, she asked Jesus to heal her. My sister does not know “chapter and verse” well at all, but one thing she has come to know is JESUS. After she prayed, she saw Jesus – he put one hand on the top of her head and the other hand over her eyes….Her vision had been completely restored. When she went to another follow-up visit with the first specialist, he and his nurses were confounded. How could someone with a poor prognosis be able to see so well? She told them – it was JESUS who healed her.” – excerpt from Angels & Miracle Healings
The Healings Continue
The Bible truth and personal testimonies that the Magels share continue to have a ripple effect. A friend read their book, then told their friend, who was a Messianic Jew, ‘you should meet the Magels.’
The friend of the friend had a blood disease that wiped out his platelets, but after praying and ministering with Mike and Judi, he got good reports from his doctors! Then, as they were heading out, Judi turned to him and asked if he spoke in tongues.
He replied, “Well, I know about it, but I’m not able to.” So, Judi asked, “do you have three more minutes”?”
Not only did the man receive a physical healing, but he and his family discovered the power of the holy spirit that they already had!
“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one [EACH PERSON] for the profit of all…” 1 Corinthians 12:7 NKJV
There’s Always More
The Magels continue to operate in the power of the holy spirit, and experience the presence of God and the healing of Jesus! They don’t claim to have it all figured out, but they know Who does.
“There’s always more,” Judi explains, “Like a little kid, we’re just learning all the time! We know if we’re still breathing, we’re here for a reason. God’s got assignments for us to do!”
