  Tonight we had a testimony of a miracle that God did a week ago.  A humble father and pastor came to report what God had done.  He shared how a large cobra, possibly a king cobra, had bitten his son in the leg.  His body was beginning to shut down and there was no way that they could get him to any hospital.  Yet, even if they did, it would be very unlikely that in the rural Philippines that anyone would have anti-venom. 

  The father is a church leader and the only thing he knew to do was pray.  The son’s body was nearly completely paralyzed and in excruciating pain.  He could feel his body shutting down as the venom went closer and closer to his heart.  The father, at a point of desperation for the life of his son, placed his Bible on his son’s heart and began to pray.  Immediately after placing the Bible on his son’s heart, the pain started to subside.  Within one hour, the son’s body was completely back to normal as the anti-venom of the Holy Spirit was working to expel the cobra’s venom.  The leader told us that his son could feel the venom moving away from his heart where the Bible was and slowly being flushed out of his body. 

   The Great Commission as recorded in the Gospel of Mark says, “17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” (Mark 16:17-18). Indeed, this father knows Jesus’ words to be true and is living them out.
