Rob Short trained with The Elijah Challenge in April 2011
Initial report from Rob: Deaf woman healed as an “Elijah Challenge” to prove the truth of the gospel
“During our time in Crosby, Texas the Lord answered our prayers and was gracious to open many doors to preach and to minister healing to the sick. Many were born again, healed, and delivered in the name of Jesus Christ. Kurt Simms and I taught the Elijah Challenge on Friday and Saturday in Crosby, Texas.
On Sunday at the end of the service, I issued a Texas-sized Elijah Challenge for someone who was deaf to come forward and proclaimed that they would be healed in Jesus’ Name. As the stage musicians were playing, a woman came forward. We commanded healing the first time. The mountain did not move! We commanded healing the second time. The mountain still did not move! We engaged the congregation the third time to command healing. The mountain still did not move!
We commanded healing the fourth time and stood our ground without any doubt. The mountain finally gave away and was cast into the sea! Immediately she started rejoicing that she could hear. Many came forward and many healings and miracles followed which confirmed the Word and proved the One True God.”
Testimony of healing
“In summary, during our time in Texas: many disciples were trained in The Elijah Challenge according to Matthew 28:20. Sixteen people were born again according to John 3:5. Five people were baptized according to Acts 2:38. Twenty people were healed according to Matthew 10:8. Four people were healed of deafness according to Matthew 10:8. Seven people were delivered from demons according to Mark 16:17.”n
