Testimony from Mrs. Geetha Deva Kumar
I was born in a nominal Christian home and went to church only at Christmas or Easter. My dad is an atheist and my mom a Christian who thought the world of my dad. When I was 19, 1 had a dream that my mother passed away and I was absolutely terrified. Within a month my mother had a rare virulent type of blood cancer and died within 21 days. Soon after that my sister and I got married.
Since my husband was a believer, I used to read the Bible with him. When we prayed together, I was not sure whether Jesus was the only Way. Whenever I came to the part where it says, “Jesus rose again”, I would be reminded of what my dad told us, that “His disciples stole the body and made up a story that He rose from the dead”.
In 1995 when our daughter Anita was 8 years old, I had a similar dream that she passed away. The body was laid in a coffin and people were going around it and kissing it. I too kissed her, and her skin felt like leather.
I woke up terrified and went to her bedside to pray. She was burning with fever. When she vomited blood, we rushed her to hospital. She started hemorrhaging internally. On the 20th day, the doctors gave up hope. She was in and out of consciousness and was seeing demons and even Satan. She would tell us they were in the room, but we thought she was delirious.
My husband and I decided to fast and pray all night. We put the IV tube through the Bible on the verse which says, “We are healed by His wounds,” knelt on either side of the bed and started to pray. I told Jesus, if what is written in the Bible is true, that You are alive and You do miracles, then come and heal my daughter.
At about 2 am my daughter began stirring and speaking in another language. After a few minutes she abruptly got up and said, “Mummy I am healed” Then she said,
“I saw Jesus”
She explained, “I was taken up through a dark tunnel higher and higher which opened into a bright hole that led to a golden gate of pearls. The gate was open, and I ran through it, I walked through streets of gold which were so beautiful and reached the shores of a sea. I was wondering how I would cross this sea and when I put my foot it was only glass like crystal. I crossed over to find a huge throne made of gold and Jesus was standing near it. I ran to Him, He carried me, and I felt so happy there I did not want to come home. So. I hugged Jesus really tight, but He kissed me and put me down and told me to go.”
That’s when she woke up. She explained how Jesus was the most beautiful person she had ever seen; His robe was bright light, and His hair and eyes were brilliant.
The doctors were surprised to see the sick child playing. They did not believe what I told them and insisted on a blood test which was normal. Hallelujah! When we came home, she saw a picture of Christ at the entrance and said, “What a terrible painting that is, Jesus is so beautiful”. She read the Bible voraciously for hours together and memorized scripture. She explained deep truths simply and displayed such love I knew it was from God.
I started reading the scriptures believing that Jesus was alive and that everything about Him was true. When I came to the Book of Revelation, I found it was exactly how my daughter had described Heaven.
The first dream came to pass but the second did not. For the second dream I called on the name of Jesus and pleaded the blood of Jesus for my daughter’s healing. He saved my daughter from the enemy. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full. (John 10:10)
With this experience, I am constrained to share His love to everyone I come across – my students, colleagues and neighbors. All glory and honor to our only true God and His Son Jesus Christ, through His Holy Spirit. Amen.
