Phenomenal Miracles Expected In DUBLIN!
That’s what the Press Release said and what Paul promised on national radio. It began like this:
Phenomenal Miracles are expected in DUBLIN, Ireland as the Five Fold Christian Healing team visits there. One of the most powerful healing teams in the world, they have led ‘outreaches’ around Ireland and abroad where it is claimed “they saw many miracles and wonders at God’s Hand’.
“Thousands, from America to Europe have witnessed dramatic miracles take place through this small team. Invalids get out of wheelchairs, backs are straightened, eyes are restored to perfect sight. Sufferers are freed from alcoholism, drug abuse, cancer etc., and AIDS victims have also been totally healed” explained “Paul”, the group’s leader, who shot to prominence in his appearance on the late Gerry Ryan 2FM Show, a prime-time national radio show in the ’90s.
On that occasion when listeners were asked to phone in a man who appeared to be suffering from a severe stammer was instantly cured. “Paul”, whose name is omitted from all posters and publicity as he “wants to lift up only the name of Jesus Christ, the one true Healer”, became a member of the charismatic group in the mid-’80s after visiting a group meeting in Dublin, with his wife.
A successful business and family man, his own beliefs were founded through a laying-on of hands by that group’s leader who told him on his second visit that he didn’t know Jesus. “I thought she was daft until she put her hands on my head and said, ‘God show this man your power’. I felt the power coming all over me and knew that Jesus was real ‘, he affirmed. Paul continued to attend the group’s meetings and studied the scriptures over the next four years until he began to notice the effect his own laying on of hands was having which resulted in a seriously ill eight-year-old child being healed.”Jesus was healing through me and the word spread quickly.”
Since then they have held meetings throughout Ireland, in the U.K., in New York, Boston, and throughout New Hampshire including at the huge Gill Stadium”.
All the Five Fold members have full-time occupations but work voluntarily for the team, giving of their time freely and gladly and paying their own expenses. The group is a non-profit, non-commercial organisation which does not expect payment and invites all people and all denominations to their meetings, Free of charge. They have nothing to sell and unusually, almost uniquely, do not seek donations.
At two large Irish meetings, in Limerick and Wexford, both events were crammed to capacity an hour before the beginning. In Wexford, searching, hurting crowds throng forward as yet another miracle occurs. The young boy weeps with joy. Healed of lockjaw and a limb miraculously grows inches. (At last, he can play football with his friends). Hundreds of people had to be refused entry.
“As the presence of God filled the hotels, a blind person saw, the lame walked and threw away walking aids, and scores of men and women were touched by Jesus Christ as they were freed from anxiety, depression, asthma, arthritis and a range of physical, financial and spiritual burdens.
Even outside the Limerick meeting, in the hotels’ foyer, a deaf lady’s hearing was miraculously restored perfectly,” he claimed. “Months later, reports continue to filter back of cancer and other serious illnesses given the ‘all clear’ after follow-up medical checks’.
Paul urges everyone, especially the sick, to come to the DUBLIN venue early, to avoid the disappointment of being turned away. Meetings are always full one hour before opening. He added,
“Dublin will be the centre of a great outpouring of God’s spirit ”Paul… Five Fold Ministry Ireland
whilst stressing that, “Healing does not come from me. It comes from God and only at his will! We’re not ‘hard-core Bible thumpers’ and there’s no yelling or stomping. Just gentle music and a calmness. We’re not telling anyone new doctrines but people will leave with a new relationship with Jesus Christ.
All of us need help……. when human help doesn’t work, there is someone to lend a helping hand in life. We’re not here to point a finger, only to preach a loving God”.
Those attending the session in March will come from all over Ireland. “People who attend this meeting will witness things they have never seen before nor may ever see again in their lifetime. The Power of God will heal in DUBLIN on that evening and I promise that people, will not be disappointed !” assured the group leader.
