I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord. (Ps. 118:17)
Several years ago, a woman came to one of my crusades. When she saw what the Bible said about healing, she started shouting. I didn't pray for her. She just jumped up and started shouting. I stepped back and let her holler and shout. I noticed that others seemed to be quite blessed by it.
The pastor said to me, "Brother Hagin, that woman and her husband are some of the wealthiest people in this area. They're worth billions!
Now they're not Pentecostal; they belong to the First Presbyterian Church."
After awhile, the woman ran down to the front, and we all praised God with her.
When I dismissed the service, she came and thanked me.
I said, "There's no use in thanking me. Thank the Lord."
"Yes," she said, "but you brought the truth to me. My son is in the UCLA hospital. He's only twenty-one years old. He'll be twenty-two in a few days.
The doctors say he'll never live to see his twenty-second birthday. He has an incurable blood disease. They've changed the entire blood in his system several different times. He's under an oxygen tent and he's hooked up to machines to keep him alive.
"But, bless God," she said, "God is on my side. He is with me. And I'm going over to that hospital right now. I want you to know that my son will live and not die."
I said, "That's right. He won't die." And she marched right over to that hospital.
Confession God is on my side. He is with me. I will live and not die. I will declare the works of the Lord.
