I wanted to include some of the testimonies that were given in the book we've been looking at about Psalm 91. Most of them are very, very long, so I am only going to include the shorter ones.
Psalm 91 Testimony from Nazi Prison Camp
"Many people came to know and trust the Lord during World War II. One was an Englishman who was held in a German prison camp for a long period of time. One day he read Psalm 91. ' Father in Heaven, ' he prayed, ' I see all these men dying around me, one after the other. Will I also have to die here? I am still young and I very much want to work in Your kingdom here on earth.'
He received this answer:' Rely on what you have just read and go home!' Trusting in the Lord, he got up and walked into the corridor toward the gate. A guard called out, 'Prisoner, where are you going?'
' I am under the protection of the Most High,' he replied. The guard came to attention and let him pass, for Adolf Hitler was known as ' the Most High.' He came to the gate, where a group of guards stood. They commanded him to stop and asked where he was going. ' I am under the protection of the Most High.' All the guards stood at attention as he walked out the gate.
The English officer made his way through the German countryside and eventually reached England, where he told how he had made his escape.
He was the only one to come out of that prison alive. "
That was my favorite- how awesome!!!
Another WWII testimony
"Sergeant George Harold Barclay served in World War II in General Patton's 320th Infantry of the U.S. Army, Company E. Continuous fear eliminated any expectation of ever returning to hjis wife and baby daughter. The same fear kept his wife terrified when she would see a Western Union truck delivering letters of war casualties. Once a Western Union messenger came to her door by mistake and she said that she froze with terror. Sometimes as many as six weeks would go by without a letter, during which time the news reported that half of Harold's company had been killed. The Battle of the Bulge saw his whole outfit cut off from the rest of the army.
Finally, however, a letter came from Harold saying that God had given him Psalm 91, and he now had absolute certainty that he would come home without even an injury. So medics said they needed volunteers to go to the front lines to bring back the injured, Harold volunteered and made repeated trips under extreme enemy fire, saving many lives.
The citation for the Bronze Star Award that he received said 'for bravery,'but Harold insisted that it wasn't bravery, since he knew nothing would happen to him because of the covenant promise God had given him in Psalm 91. When he came home without a scratch, it was obvious that angels had indeed borne him up in their hands, allowing no evil to befall him."
John G. Lake's testimonial
This is exactly what the author says:
" I have often read accounts of the time when John G. Lake took fraught (foam) from the bubonic plague in his hand and placed it under a microscope, where poeple watched in amazement as the germs literally died instantly on contact with his hand. I was puzzled for years, wondering what kind of anointing he possesssed to bring about that kind of supernatural phenomenon.
Nothing could have pleased me more than when I learned Mr. Lake's secret- his wholehearted belief in the Psalm 91 covenant umbrella of protection that God has provided for all of His children who trust His promise more than they trust in what they see and feel in this world.
On page 340 of the book John G. Lake: The Complete Collection of His Life Teachings, Mr. Lake made the statement that confirmed the secret to his supernatural protection- 'For many years God kept me so that sickness and death could not touch me, from the day that I saw in the ninety-first Psalm a man's privilege of entering into God, not only for healing, but health and having God and the life of God in every fiber of his being.'"
I hope that these snippets have helped in any way. If it's helped one person than it was worth it. I'm so glad to be able to share with the world God's truth.
