Testimony from a young lady that I prayed for at the Glory Well in Arundel, Queensland, Australia
I was feeling a little low one day, like I just didn’t want to interact with anyone, when I bumped into Kev and some friends. He asked me to join them, but I just wanted to be by myself. Then he asked if I was ok and if I wanted to talk about it, to which I said that I didn’t really know what was wrong, but I just felt unsettled, and so he offered to pray for me. He asked me to sit down and relax and told me that he was going to ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to me why I felt the way I did and, immediately after he had asked, I was shown a vision from the past, to a time when I was about five years old, when my natural parents gave me away for adoption. Then I was filled with the emotions of rejection, hurt and guilt from believing that it was entirely my fault. As I described the vision and feeling that had been revealed, he asked me to repent of any ill feeling towards my natural parents, and then commanded a “spirit of rejection” to leave me. As he did, I felt my body tense up and, in my mind, was a sensation of just wanting to get to the lowest point in the room. A friend who was observing said that my arms were tightly by my sides and my legs were firmly together but making the motion of like a snake, as in trying to slither onto the floor from the settee, but as he prayed I felt something rising up from my stomach, through my body, and then I coughed out. It felt like something was leaving me but it looked like just a breath. All of a sudden my mind became so clear and I was filled with such a joy and peace as Kev continued to pray for me to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Afterwards I began to realise that I’d actually spent nearly my whole life believing a lie from the enemy that my being given away was my fault and I’d also felt that it was my responsibility to try and mend it and it was strange how I couldn’t see it for myself until the evil spirit had left me. I’d made countless trips to see my natural parents thinking that I could mend the past. As soon as the lies from that unclean spirit in my head had stopped, Kev helped me to start believing the truth that God had sent His Son, Jesus, to pay a one-off payment for the sin of man’s rebellion to redeem and adopt me as His own, and there is nothing that I can do by myself to repair or pay for my earthly parents’ mistakes. No one compares to our Father in Heaven and His gift is for you to overcome and have your minds renewed to walk in freedom, I’m so thankful for the help from my brothers and sisters in Christ who have allowed Him to work through them to build me up by my heavenly Father’s strength.
Someone asked me to come and pray for them for asthma. I felt the Holy Spirit tell me that something terrible had happened to him as a child which had allowed a spirit of grief to enter him. When questioned, he confirmed it by explaining how his father had passed away when he was eight years old and his grief was so bad that his mind had actually blanked out all his previous memories before this incident, to the point that he had no memories of his father at all, and it wasn’t long after that he developed asthma. So his wife and myself started to pray against this spirit of grief and then all of a sudden he said that something was manifesting in his stomach area and rising up inside him!
Well, as we kept praying, this unclean spirit moved up his body and into his neck. At this point the Holy Spirit told me that he needed to repent of ill feeling towards his brothers who’d attended his father’s funeral (because, being younger, he’d not been allowed to go) and then straight after his confession the unclean spirit moved from his throat and he coughed it out! Amen.
Then as he stood there bewildered, thinking it was all over, I placed my hands upon his head and started praying for a renewing of his mind and memories. Then suddenly, the man burst into uncontrollable crying as he shouted out, “I can see my father! I can see my father!!!! My memories are coming back!!!!” I looked over at his wife, who had a smile ear to ear and her eyes now watering too – such a powerful and emotional encounter of God’s restoration and a great testimony of how these things work together to form strongholds and the importance of being led by the Holy Spirit.
Once I was asked to pray for a lady with an issue of fear. As we prayed for her, I was shown that there was an issue with sexual abuse from her childhood. The Holy Spirit guided me in sharing different testimonies of a similar nature. After about an hour of sharing, all of a sudden she started to cry. The ministry time was so important, because the stories led by the Spirit had opened up her heart and mind to receive the Spirit’s conviction. And as she opened up, I heard the most disturbing story of how her parents had in fact dedicated her to Satan as a baby and had involved her in satanic rituals. The knock-on effect of sexual abuse and fear of the opposite sex had destroyed her relationships and life. Now, lots of people had prayed for this fear problem to go, but I was shown by the Spirit that, in order for her to be delivered, we must first break off the generational curse placed upon her through her parents. And as we asked her to acknowledge and repent of the sins of her parents, then forgive her parents, this tore out the root that was enabling the spirit of fear a foothold. So eventually we cast it out and she was completely healed of her fear of men.
Hi Kev, for quite some time, in fact since my early 20's, I have been snared by pornography. A friend recommended having some deliverance ministry from Kev. I knew that I had to get free, so I booked some time with him and drove to his home in Derby. As Kev began ministering, he prayed and asked some relevant questions and then invited the Holy Spirit to show me the incident that gave Satan the legal right to affect my soul. Within a minute, in the Spirit I was shown a time way back when I was about 9 or 10 years old, that I’d totally forgotten about, where I’d found a paperback book in my parents’ bedroom, which I’d taken and absorbed the sexual content without my parents knowing. After I’d described my vision, he asked me to repent for my behaviour, which had allowed a foothold to my soul and, as he prayed, I convulsed as an unclean spirit manifested, I could feel it coming up from my stomach and leaving through my mouth as I coughed it out! And then Kev named three other unclean spirits (that I was completely unaware of) and I was delivered from them, too, in the same manner. Later, while in his home group meeting, two other spirits were evicted. I had experienced first hand the anointing that Kev has and I’ve felt lighter in my soul and clean. I’d been harbouring some of those demons since I was a child. Praise Jesus, now I am clean and full of the Holy Spirit. Thank you, Lord, and bless you, Kev.
I was with Kev once in a meeting and we were chatting to a guy who was sharing that he was struggling to control his eating. He was overweight and, as a result of this, it had caused him to become diabetic. We spoke for a while about the emotional side effects and possible causes, when Kev asked the man to sit back and close his eyes, and then proceeded to ask the Holy Sprit to reveal to the guy the root cause of why he was unable to control his eating. After a few minutes, the guy said that the Lord had just revealed a vision to him from his past where, when he was 6/7 years old, something terrible (which he was unable to talk about) had happened to him and the shame and guilt from this episode had been the start of the comfort eating. Kev said that he didn’t have to reveal what had happened, he just needed to repent from any behaviour he had entered into and any ill feeling towards anyone else who had been involved, and after he had done this Kev then prayed for anything that had attached itself to him to leave by the authority given by the Lord Jesus Christ and, at that moment, the guy started to convulse as an unclean spirit started manifesting inside him. The guy slid down the settee and you could see the shock and amazement in his face as it looked like something was physically leaving his body as he coughed out! The guy calmed down for a minute or two and then as Kev started commanding out more and he started to do the same thing all over again, about five times he coughed out unclean spirits, then one manifested but didn’t seem to want to leave. This seemed different from the others. At this moment, Kev said that this was a stronghold and needed to be named, so he asked us all to start praying and tune in to God, because the Lord was going to reveal the stronghold. And, suddenly, the Lord gave me a vision of like a ghostly child so, by faith, I shared what I had seen in my vision. Then Kev laid his hand upon the guy’s chest and commanded the childish spirit to leave! And at that moment the guy started to convulse as he coughed out the unclean spirit. Wow, what a fantastic hands-on teaching demonstration of casting out unclean spirits that distort our minds and rob our lives of the truth that Jesus has given us the power to overcome and be set free.

Once when I met an Asian guy in church, who was from a Buddhist background and quite new to Christianity, and he shared with me how he was getting disheartened, because he’d spent most of his life praying to Buddha for “good luck” and never felt that he’d received anything, but now he’s come into a church to try out God, and although he’d prayed and received lots of prayer, he said that he still hadn’t felt or received anything from a higher power. The problem was that he’d spent most of his life just doing religion, trying and striving to be a good person and praying for good luck, but now applying the same principles of his religious practice in a different building, trying out a different God to see if it improved his odds. So I explained that he wouldn’t receive anything through prayer until he renounced his Buddhist religion and fully embraced that Jesus was the only way to God, and eventually, through some ministry time, he decided to ditch his religion for relationship and asked for some prayer.
Well, during the prayer time he started to shake violently. Then all of a sudden he flew forward about ten feet onto the ground, then rolled over onto his back. But the bizarre thing was that now, only the left half of his body was shaking, as in right down the middle! Like one arm and one leg! Then very slowly the shaking arm elevated into an L shape, while the hand formed the Mudra with his thumb and forefinger, a symbolic hand gesture used as the mark of Buddha, and eventually he let out a scream and came back to normal. I’d never seen anything like it and when I asked him what happened, he said that he’d witnessed God and Buddha fighting and God won! I had to smile; as it was only just previously that he’d said nothing happens when people pray for him. See, that religious spirit didn’t mind him attending church and doing religion, but it did mind him coming into the truth about Jesus.
Someone brought a guy to me at church for prayer with a bad back. I asked him if there was anything else and then he mentioned that in his earlier days he’d been into Ouija boards. I just knew that this could get a bit messy, so in this church they had a small glass-fronted sound-proof room usually used for noisy children, and so with a lady member of the prayer team we moved into this room.
I placed my hand upon the painful area of his back and started praying, but nothing seemed to happen at all, and I was quite surprised. Then, just as I was about to stop praying, all of sudden he started to groan. And, at the same moment, the lady from the prayer team, who was standing in front of him, ran to the corner of this small room and started frantically praying! To my surprise, as I moved around to face the front of him, he had started to foam at the mouth and his eyes had rolled round, so that you could only see the whites of his eyes. I placed my hand upon the stomach area and then commanded the unclean spirit to come out of him! He fell back so hard that he went right over the sofa and, even though the lady was looking petrified, she ran over to him to see if he was ok. Just as she knelt at his side, the guy put his arms down his sides and started moving like a snake across the ground. I’d never seen anything like it. The lady leapt up and ran back into her corner, frantically praying (probably for God to take her out the room!), so I knelt down beside him as he was trying to slither to the door, placed my hand upon his chest and commanded the “serpent spirit “out! He stopped moving, let out a scream and then burst into tears. At this moment, the door flung open as his wife, who had been watching the whole thing through the window, came rushing in and cradled him in her arms and started crying too. It was such an emotional experience and a privilege to witness the kingdom of God at work. The man was completely healed of his back pains, and probably a lot more in his mind and marriage, observing the reaction. Then, just as the couple left the room the lady from the prayer team just went crazy at me, as though it was all my fault!
While praying for a woman from church, the Holy Spirit showed me a picture of an English army helmet from the Second World War, and when I asked the Holy Spirit what it meant, He gave me the words “repetitive declaration” and then I was filled with a knowing that this was a spirit of false warfare. So when I mentioned this, the lady confessed that every day she felt the need to fulfil her “ritual” of declaring who she was in Christ and, at first hearing, this to the natural ear sounds a good thing, but a child never has to remind itself and declare whom its parents are; a child knows its parents by its relationship. There are times when the Holy Spirit may lead you in your relationship with Him to declare a thing and do spiritual warfare and then we must believe by faith for the accomplishment, which is completely different to a repetition of the same words every day, that sound good in our own effort (Mt 6:7). I think most people will have felt the heaviness in meetings where people give their perfectly rehearsed religious prayers that are not orchestrated by the Holy Spirit, but as I said, the anointing doesn’t operate in our own strength; the anointing comes on what He does through us, when we are in Him. So after ministering and praying with her, she suddenly felt something rising up inside her and she just gave a light cough, almost like she released a breath of air, and immediately she felt the peace and presence of the Holy Spirit, which she confessed that she hadn’t felt for some time.
In a meeting in Hemel Hempstead I was asked to pray for a young lady with a twisted spine and as I laid my hand upon her lower back she went out on the floor, convulsing as the power of the Holy Spirit caused an evil spirit to manifest and, as it left, her spine wasn’t twisted any more. God is awesome!
There was a young man from my parent’s church, who had just come back from an African missionary trip. While out there, he’d picked up some kind of stomach illness and had been ill for about three months. Many people from his church had prayed for him and the doctors were baffled by it. They’d actually mentioned the possibility of fitting him with a colostomy bag. He was only 21 years old! While at his parent’s house, the young man came downstairs clutching his stomach. I said to him, “Are you still ill? After all this time?” And at that moment I just had a revelation that he had the spirit of witchcraft upon him. I’d never had anything like that before, but as I heard it by the Spirit, I believed it by faith. I said to him, “You have the spirit of witchcraft on you, let’s go in the kitchen and get it off!” When I placed my hand on his shoulder and told it to go, his body convulsed, he described it like the pain had moved from his stomach up into his throat and had left out of his mouth! Amen, he’d been completely healed in an instant 100%. Our God is amazing.
Some years ago I was praying for a woman with chest pains. She said it felt like a band around her chest. We prayed for ages, the woman’s pain actually got worse! Then the lady said to me, “you’re not listening, and then Jesus said to me, "Pull it out!” As I stopped rambling and started listening, the Holy Spirit gave me the revelation of an ancient slavery band, which you had to unscrew and pull the pin to release freedom.
In the Spirit, I could see this pin sticking out of her heart, and by faith I grabbed it, twisted it and then pulled it out. To everyone else watching in the room, I probably looked like I was a crazy person, but as I pulled it out by faith she suddenly dropped to the ground and started convulsing as an unclean spirit came out of her! And she was healed from the chest pains. Amen. I had to laugh about it; it was completely all His glory. Jesus even told the lady to tell me to listen to Him!
We invited Kev to minister at our Speakers of Life meeting. He began by giving us a host of stories on how Holy Spirit led him to see healings and deliverances. During the meeting everyone started to smell burning, I had to go and check outside to see if anything was on fire, but the aroma of burning was just in our meeting room!
Towards the end of the meeting, he turned to a woman sitting on his right and spoke a word of knowledge to her about her spiritual gifts, that she had birthed something that she was involved with pastorally, which she confirmed to be true. He then told her that when she prayed, he knew that she received many pictures because he’d been shown that there was a prophetic gift inside her that needed to come out! He then asked who had the pain in their left eye? And another lady stated that was her! So he asked the first lady to lay a hand on the lady with the eye problem while he prayed and that if she could deliver what God was going to give her as he prayed, to which the lady looked very nervous. Well after he prayed the eye was healed and amazingly the first lady started describing pictures over the now healed lady supporting the words given by Kev, then he continued this format as we progressed the meeting, encouraging the first lady to move out into her prophetic gifting.
Another woman asked for prayer, she came because she’d felt so far away from Father God. She wanted confirmation that he was still interested in her! Kev imparted and told her that she had a pastoral gift inside her that she needed to allow the Holy Spirit to bring out, and the woman received a vision of a crown, and the lady who was now moving in her prophetic gift confirmed this with great words and actually describing the same crown! Then the woman being prayed for received the sensation of an actual crown pressing down on her head! So here I am watching ministry where the evangelist was imparting various gifts and ministering healing, while at the same time, encouraging others to grow in their gifts allowing the flow of the Holy Spirit to confirm the truths in signs and wonders to the recipients.
He encouraged everyone that we are all qualified to minister, Jesus paid the price for us to become His righteousness and qualified everyone to minister by Him. Another woman asked for prayer, who was not well at all, she had a pain in her neck and had previously been to hospital and placed on a special food diet. Kev looked at her and said that he saw an African water spirit and he rebuked it in Jesus name, and the unclean spirit manifested making a lot of noise, then she rose up out of her chair and fell forward, face down on the floor convulsing, then let out a loud scream before returning to a calm state. Everyone at our meeting was touched and witnessed God move, one of our best meetings we’ve ever had.
Some time ago, while speaking at a gospel outreach in India, I witnessed God do some amazing miracles, and at the end of one of the evenings a lady came and asked me if I would go back to her house and pray for her son. So I went to her house and as she opened the door to this darkly lit room. There was a mattress lying in the middle of the room and, lying there, was a man, probably in his thirties. He was mute, and probably the most double-jointed, deformed person I’d ever seen in my life. The woman said with a smile on her face, "This is my son. Please can you help him” and even though I’d witnessed lots of healings that night, this situation was just heart breaking. So as I kneeled down beside him and prayed against any generational curses on his family line and against any dumb spirits, amongst many other things, and although I’d witnessed many miracles earlier that evening, I never witnessed anything happen to this man, in any way whatsoever. I was so overwhelmed with emotions that I was praying and praying without listening, then as I realized I stayed quiet trying to focus, but I didn’t seem to receive anything, I did feel the presence of the Holy Spirit over him, and so I just believed that God was doing something!
As I stopped, I looked over at his mum, who I knew had also witnessed all the healings that night, I almost felt lost for words. I can't tell you how emotional it was, my faith was really being stretched this time, so I just said exactly what I felt, that the Holy Spirit was all over him and that he’s in God’s hands now. But I could just imagine her thinking “Why not my son?” But then, to my surprise she wasn’t fazed by it and she also asked for prayer, for her back and then at that moment I felt the Spirit tell me that she also had knee pains and slight deafness, which she acknowledged. And When I prayed over her, God healed all of her sicknesses (knees, back and even the slight deafness in one ear). Hallelujah! So while we were rejoicing over the healing, the son was still just lying on the mattress, and seemed to be in exactly the same state as when we arrived. The lady was in tears, hugging me, but my mind was trying to analyse it all. It didn’t make any sense; I just couldn’t help but wonder “why?”
The next night during the outreach, the lady came rushing up to me, flung her arms around me with tears running down her face, and said that her son used to have fits every half an hour, but since that morning all of his fits had stopped and he’d started to speak for the first time in his whole life. She said that he was talking like a baby. Wow! Amen. So even though you don’t fully understand the “whys” or see the manifested evidence of what you are praying for, never stop believing by faith.
