17) And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18) They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
(Mark 16:17-18, KJV)

The following is a testimony from Elder Turner:
I have a praise report / testimony about the healing I received during this past Sunday’s worship service. My left ear had been completely clogged up since Thursday. I had tried everything I knew to do to get it unclogged but nothing worked. I could hardly hear anything through that ear, to include while using my hearing aid. I had planned on going to see my Doctor the following week, BUT GOD! The Spirit of the Lord was present in DCC on Sunday and my spirit began to draw from it and received the healing needed for my ear. By the time we left church and was on the way home, I could hear through my left ear again – that for which the enemy intends to block or stop up, God is able to break up and restore. All glory be to God my healer and deliverer!

God has power over cancer!!
Myrna Ellis, a woman of faith from New Jersey stood firm when we prayed for her daughter Dawn Ellis over 20 years ago for the healing of her cancer. Year after year, Dawn’s tests have proven that she was totally healed and cancer free.
Myrna continued to send lists of family, friends and associates for prayer. One by one, God has healed them!
Here is her testimony Bishop Arije received today while on cruise:
This is a testimony for you to use in your travels. I requested about six months ago that you pray for my friend’s husband who had prostate cancer. It was pretty serious. Well, he has been in remission for three months. His PSA is 0.1. I thank you, thank you, thank you ! God is all Powerful!!!!!!
The following is a testimony from Elder Lolita Michelle Jones:
On this morning, September 10, 2015, I was on my way to work. I was listening to one of my favorite worship songs called “Like Never Before”. Listening to the song had me feeling like something was going to happen today but I just didn’t know what it was. One of my workers came in and then the exterminator came in. I was asking my crew leader what kind of gospel music does she listen to and she was saying gospel is just gospel to her. So I was explaining the difference between praise songs and worship songs and told her about the song I was listening to and how it made me feel.
When I told her that Shekinah Glory sang the song the exterminator kind of chuckled. I said, “I got a praise dance and I have a worship inside of me.” The exterminator said when the spirit comes upon him he praises like David did. We kind of looked at him because it wasn’t our typical subject with him. He never carries on a conversation with us. So my sister called me on the phone and I walked away from the exterminator and my crew leader. The exterminator was about to leave and he came back in like he was troubled. I heard him say “Now I know what the Lord told me and I am supposed to pray for someone who has back aches and one of their legs are longer than the other.” I got off phone with my sister and out of the thought that he didn’t say what I thought I heard him say. So he repeated it!
I said that would be me and this is nobody but God because nobody not even my mother knew that about my legs. I was always ashamed about it when I got hurt once in sports and never told anyone. I told him that I was trying to get back to Tennessee so that my Bishop could pray over me and I would be healed. The exterminator said, “No God is going to heal you today! Can I pray for you?” I said yes. So we went to the stock room, he told me to sit in chair and raise both of my feet up. Yes they were still uneven. My left leg was longer than my right. He said God said this is the reason why you have been having so many issues with your leg, your back, and your neck. For years all the weight and pressure has been going on the right leg which was shorter and causing you to lean a little.
He prayed a prayer, he called on the Holy Spirit, He referenced God and his words of healing. There was a feeling going through my legs that I cannot explain. All I could do is continue to say “THANK YOU JESUS FOR MY HEALING”. I had my eyes closed and couldn’t believe what I was feeling. I OPENED MY EYES WITH MY LEGS STILL STRETCHED AND EVEN!!!! ALL PAIN WAS GONE. I was scheduled to start physical therapy on my right knee and leg. No pain all day and I worked 14 hours without pain! The exterminator said we are called by God through the works of the Holy Spirit to Heal and cast out demons not to lay dormant! We can’t be as the disciples were before Jesus died- little faith. I thought I would have to go to where I was familiar to get healing from God. I was expecting the unexpected and God healed me and met me where I was though a vendor of service.
My exterminator’s name is Marcus. Doesn’t look like he serves God. He is tattooed all over. He doesn’t look like he dances like David. He doesn’t look like he has a relationship with God. BUT HE DOES. I THANK GOD FOR HIS OBEDIENCE. Because I didn’t look at him from the outside-because the outside doesn’t look like much, I received my blessing by a vessel God used named Marcus, my exterminator.

Sister Teara has been sick for about a week and couldn’t talk or sleep. She went to the ER twice and they could not find what was wrong with her.
Last night, Bishop Arije taught the continued series of speaking in tongues. Paul told us that when we pray in the spirit (tongues) we are speaking mystery that is only known to our Heavenly Father. He further expanded on the advantage of praying in tongues since we don’t fully know what we should pray for. The Spirit, who knows all things, will pray for the right thing unknown to our human mind.
We prayed for Teara in the spirit and the Lord declared she will be able to talk and be able to sleep.
By the time the service dismissed, she was talking (for first time in a week)! The below text is what she sent to Bishop Arije after her miracle:
Good morning Bishop. For the first time since Saturday I got some rest and I can talk again since Saturday as well!

The Crippled Walked
God’s healing power manifested at the March of Faith “Gathering of the Shepherds” monthly meeting. A crippled man walked without having to use his walker. And these signs shall follow them that believe.
One of the March of Faith pastors, Pastor Salter, reported this regarding a Sunday service following a Hope and Healing revival in their church:
Hi Bishop, I must report to you that the expanded glory overflowed yesterday to our Sunday service. From the start, with worship, the Spirit of God moved in the house. Two more were filled with the Holy Ghost, three were delivered. From the enemy trying to control and destroy their lives, the Word of God did Its work, and the benediction lasted 30 minutes or more. Nobody wanted to leave! They would go out and come back in shouting about what God had done. One of the ladies you prayed for Friday night testified that she did not have to take any more pain medication! We need another revival soon; I’m praying for it to come!

The following is a testimony from Overseer Manuel Donis:
Dad (Bishop Arije), I just want to let you know that the Expanded Glory is still expanding. Sharon had a lump in her hand and she asked God to heal her during the Convocation. She felt her hand today and it is gone! Glory to God!

Minister Edward Moses had been seeking new employment for about 3 months. On July 26, Bishop Arije prophesied that if anyone has been seeking new employment or a promotion, that in 14 days their prayers would be answered. On August 6, eleven days after the prophecy went forth, Min. Moses signed the job offer, and his salary will be twice as much as it is at his previous job!

On July 26, a lady came up to the altar for prayer. She used a cane to assist her with walking. After declarations were made that she is healed, she began walking without the assistance of a cane or anybody holding her. God definitely got the glory out of this lady’s life, because she was spotted weeks after in Grecian’s Steakhouse waving her cane in the air!
Another member had been secretly praying to God to heal her from her infirmities. She also came to the altar on July 26 seeking healing from fluid retention in her feet. Little did she know, God was also healing her from an issue she had told no one about. She went to the doctor the Monday after the service, and they said she had a tumor or cyst on one of her ovaries. By the time she took an ultrasound on Friday, what the doctors previously saw on Monday was gone!
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
