I became a Christian in year 2000 following lots of problems in my life, too complicated here to fully explain, but I had a lot of depression, fear, panic attacks and anxiety. I was a mess following a nervous breakdown. It was here that I surrendered all of myself, and life to Jesus and started on a journey of healing with God. I had lots of counseling and therapy for quite a number of years and even though I had improved a lot I still struggled with depression and as though the whole world was on my shoulder. I was still suicidal at times and tried to take my own life once but thanks to God I felt he prevented it.
Over the years, as I developed my relationship with God, I often prayed for healing of my mind, but never really became free from anxiety and depression. I would often think that people were always against me, and calling me behind my back, and early mornings were always the worst, as soon as I woke, my confidence in myself was constantly under attack.
One day my paranoia caused me to have a big argument with someone who I trusted though church, which sent my mind into disappointment and utter confusion. But as I took this to prayer, the Lord led me to understand that there was in fact an evil spirit, twisting my thoughts. He showed me that every time someone spoke to me in a particular manner, the evil spirit brought back the emotions of the psychological abuse that my father used to do to me as a child. The Lord led me to forgive my father and renounce the evil, and as I command it to leave in the name of Jesus, I felt it leave me and immediately, praise God, my mind became clear. This encounter caused me to want to learn more and understand the deliverance that I had received, and so I attended a well-known deliverance school, where I learnt more about the Father heart of God and His love, which I needed as my own father had distorted my vision of a father. This time was a great learning and I also gained overseas missionary experience too.
But when I came back to live in Derby, I struggled to settle back into work and “normal life”, and over a several years, I just became so tired and exhausted all the time from doing my job, that it affected my quiet time with Jesus and eventually I back-slid, questioning some of the truths I had previously learnt and even the whole subject of deliverance.
During this summer, one evening, I went out with Kevin and some other folk for dinner and on the way back in the car I started to get angry about something and Kevin recognizes something manifest in me and as he prayed about it, God led Kevin to do deliverance right there in the car! - I must have coughed up about forty or Fifty spirits that evening all shown by the Holy Spirit in visions and words from God. It was such a powerful moment, I felt the Holy Spirit so powerfully. Later that evening God Spoke to me and said that, He needed to bring me to this point in my life, to be right for all the deliverance. I had to realize how bad sin was, for me to be ready for this deliverance! Over the weeks there was more deliverance to come, which some of, God showed to do myself in my quiet time, and sometimes Kevin also did some. One week the Lord led him to do deliverance on mind control, which was quite a long session of deliverance.
I am so different now! Lots of the fears have completely gone, the depression and anxieties etc. have gone, I have lots and lots of more confidence, I don’t get so tired as before and my health is much better. I realize now that my healing journey of my mind has been a gradual process, and through the deliverances, there has been new understanding, bringing me into the real truth, that’s sets people free.
Deliverance has worked for me and Jesus did lots of deliverance when he walked the Earth and gave us all power and authority to cast out demons. There is a walking out in the healing but I have to remember that now it’s not me that does this but Jesus who lives and works in me and through me – as I spend time with Him and read the bible. I praise God for what he has done for me here! And know my journey isn’t over yet, but I’m sure that there will be more deliverance as time goes on, as I allow Him to guide me into His fullness!
All praise to Jesus Christ our Lord God who’s over the heavens and earth and all that’s in the earth and beneath and above it and to God our father to who nothing is impossible to him that made us! Thank you to Jesus who died on the cross so we can be set free!
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. Fred Rudkin
