I took Kev to Byker City Fellowship International in Newcastle once, and during the worship the Pastor came up to me and asked me to take Kev over to his daughter who had a hip problem that was stopping her from running, throughout this ministry time I shadowed Kev and witnessed first hand how he ministered in the Holy Spirit and imparted gifts. So the pastor’s daughter stood before us and Kev ministered to her hip and we saw her leg kick out, and she confirmed that she had been healed, at the same time Kev said she had a prophetic gift that she needed to allow the Holy Spirit to bring out. So immediately after she was healed, he took her with us to the next person who requested prayer. Kevin recognised that this man had an unclean spirit and asked the pastor’s daughter for name that God had given to her while he was praying for the man. She gave Kev the name of the unclean spirit, and when Kev named and commanded it to come out, the man started convulsing as the unclean spirit manifested! Another woman I took Kev to had a bone marrow problem but after short time Kev said it was a water spirit, and as he rebuked it she too started convulsing as the unclean spirit started manifesting, so much that she was rolling all over the floor before it eventually left her as she coughed out and she became healed. Now I was beginning to see how the Holy Spirit operated, and Kevin was so moving in confidence that each person would be healed, I heard his prayer/ rebuke, he never asked for demons to go but demanded, while treating each person with dignity who he ministered to, I was so glad to be a part of what was happening.
Another request came from a man who had pain across his shoulders and was deaf his in left ear, Kev rebuked a spirit of false responsibility in Jesus name, and the man confirmed that his ear and shoulders was healed. The requests were coming in a steady stream, one woman said she had a frozen shoulder, but then revealed some years previously she had an accident that damaged a bone, Kev told her that the pain would travel down her arm and when it reaches her wrist, she must shake of the devil and as he prayed she confirmed that her pain did exactly that! Kev said, “Give it a good shake!” And as she did, she confirmed the pain had gone and her shoulder was healed.
Kev prayed for the Pastors wife, who had a slight pain and deafness in her left ear, He rebuked the pain and demanded all negative words to depart before blowing a light breath into her left ear, proclaiming life and then she was healed! I was totally in awe of how the Holy Spirit was working bringing healing and deliverance through Kev, he would say later on that we were all qualified to bring healing, deliverance and raising the dead, Jesus paid the price so we could do so. Another woman request prayer for a stiff neck and pain across shoulders, Kev rebuked the pain and asked her to move her neck. The lady started moving her head around, then moved her shoulders and as she loosened up she began to dance with her head bobbing along to the music and then Kev held her hands and they both danced together, then she declared that she was completely healed.
I was also taken how Kev would minister gifts to people, a man requested prayer for lower back pain from weight training in the gym. Kev said that God was going to give him the gift of evangelism, then Kev pressed his hand on the mans stomach and the man could feel something enter him! Then Kev told him that he was going to birth evangelism! It brought a smile to his face and he was healed. This was a tremendous time, I was moving alongside this brother in Christ and watching how he ministered, he was telling me at times what to look for and I asked him how he got to know what the problem was and he would tell /show me. This man came and said that he’d had a bike accident some years ago and left his right knee painful, Kev placed his hands on his knee and then I heard the bones crack, he then asked him to flex his knee and he declared that he was totally healed. After each healing and deliverance Kev encouraged the person to lift up there hands to heaven to praise and thank Jesus for His glory.
The ministry time now over, I got home rejoicing for I had seen many healings, a few deliverances, I had been shown how to do the same, and the one comment that Kev Dexter always reiterated, that there was no special person marked out to do this ministry, but we all were qualified by the blood of Jesus to do it. It was about seeking a more intimate relationship with Jesus and allowing Him to work through us to bring the Kingdom healing to a hurting world. I have made life long friends with Kev, I only wish I’d met him earlier in my Christian walk.
