Unleavened Bread Bible Study
Hidden Manna For the End Times
Restored by God on 01/15/2007
This is a testimony of God's power to fix anything: (Mar.11:24) Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. We have been producing the Unleavened Bread Bible Study TV programs for Unleavened Bread Ministries. In doing so, we use a high-end video software package which recommends separate hard-drives for editing and rendering purposes. In our case, we use a notebook computer with external hard-drives to fulfill the recommendations of the software.
On the morning of January 15, 2007, I began to continue work on the new version of Hidden Manna for the End Times. As I turned on my computer, an error came up indicating a catastrophic hard-drive failure on my external hard-drive. Basically, this meant that not only was the hard-drive not accessible anymore, but that the data on it was now corrupt. All of our video program data was on that hard-drive. (In the natural, our data was lost; hundreds of hours of work -- gone.)
After eventually catching my breath, I called Brother David Eells to discuss the situation. We immediately went to the Lord in prayer -- he, myself and my wife. We needed a mountain to be removed and we all prayed accordingly that the hard-drive be restored. David recommended we lay our hands on the hard-drive by faith here in Utah, while he spoke the command for it to be restored in the name of Jesus, which we did. Then we thanked and praised our Heavenly Father.
(We were in a place of total weakness and needed a miracle from God.) (2Co.12:9) And he hath said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my power is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
After we got off the phone with David, my wife and I needed to run some errands in town. While we were out running errands, the devil kept constantly telling me in my mind that the hard-drive was still damaged, but ... I could send it to the manufacturer to possibly retrieve the data on it. Firstly, sending the hard-drive into the manufacturer for retrieval would take too much time (which we didn't have); and secondly, there would be no guarantee that the data would be retrieved (according to the manufacturer of the hard-drive, this was an *irrecoverable failure*). At the same time the devil was talking to me, I heard the Lord reminding me of scripture such as these:
(Jas.2:17) Even so faith, if it have not works, is dead in itself. (Heb.10:23) let us hold fast the confession of our hope that it waver not; for he is faithful that promised. (2 Corinthians 5:7) (for we walk by faith, not by sight), (Rom.4:17) (as it is written, A father of many nations have I made thee) before him whom he believed, even God, who giveth life to the dead, and calleth the things that are not, as though they were.
Therefore, my tongue and feet needed to be in agreement with what we prayed for earlier; even though I was getting bombarded with contrary thoughts from the enemy, I needed to endure the fiery trial. I continued to cast down all vain imaginations (2 Corinthians 10:5) throughout this time and my wife and I continued thanking the Lord (Philippians 4:6) for healing the hard-drive.
(2Co.10:5) casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. (Php.4:6) In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
After returning home, I sat down on our couch and looked at the computer (at this point I hadn't turned it back on since we prayed). As I was looking at the computer and the external hard-drive, my eyes were drawn to a framed scripture that we hung on the wall just above the computer.
It reads: (Mar.16:17) And these signs shall accompany them that believe: in my name shall they cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues; (18) they shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall in no wise hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover
As I focused in on the framed scripture on the wall, an amazing thing happened: the Holy Spirit quickened the scripture to read: ... they shall lay hands on the disk, and it shall recover. It's as if He rearranged the words/letters before my eyes. I thought, wow, did that really happen? (We did, in fact, lay hands on the hard-drive [disk] when we prayed with David.)
At this same time, my wife was getting ready to cut my hair and the thought came to my mind that I would test the computer/hard-drive out after my haircut was done. (Doubt and unbelief were trying to creep in by delaying.)
Then I heard the Lord tell me in the Spirit, "If you believe that I healed the hard-drive, what are you waiting for? Turn your computer on". So I immediately turned on the computer; the hard-drive spun up, was recognized by the computer and all the data on it was fine. (Please note: this miracle defies natural physics and electronics.)
The Lord healed that hard-drive perfectly, as if it just came out of the box! There's nothing He can't do! Amen.
