Several years ago I studied the great John G. Lake’s wonderful book on healing. Lake was a missionary to South Africa from 1908 to 1913. While he was there, a horrific bubonic plague broke out. John Lake was caring for the sick and burying the dead. His book describes the mighty healing power of God he experienced as that power through his hands healed probably more people than was recorded in history (except for Jesus).
Currently, I am rereading this book for the fourth time. It is the most outstanding book on the power of God that can be used by a dedicated and faith-filled believer that I have ever read. Each chapter is filled with miraculous stories of the workings of our Lord Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. It is awe inspiring to study the scriptures and realize that God has given this same mighty power to any believer who will believe and step out and act by faith.
For centuries, Christians have marveled at the reality of God’s healing power and divine miracles wrought through the hands of men and women who have dedicated their lives to Him. From the early Church to the twentieth century, people have flocked to these ministers in a desperate search for healing and understanding of the power of God. One such minister, known for his great boldness, was John G. Lake. He brought an air of intrigue, faith, and encouragement to hundreds of thousands of believers in the United States and abroad.
