Delivered from the Curse of Witchcraft: The Amazing Testimony of Bro. Joel Malabad

Before the Lord Jesus Christ came into their life, the family of Bro. Joel Malabad was living in the clutches of witchcraft. Their life was in darkness and truly miserable. His father left them even before Bro. Joel was born. His mother practised witchcraft and spent her days being inebriated with alcohol (gin). There were days that she would be drinking from sunup until the morning of next day. She had become so addicted to alcohol that, one time, she even drank Chlorox just to satisfy her mouth and throat, according to Bro. Joel’s testimony.

When Bro. Joel was only 4 years old, his witch mother had a quarrel with another witch in their neighborhood. That witch tried to cast her black magic on Bro. Joel’s mother to punish her, but she was unsuccessful. It turned out that his mother was more powerful than the other witch.

The angry witch set her sights on Bro. Joel instead, who was then an innocent and helpless 4-year old kid, pouring our all her wrath on him. And so, Bro. Joel suffered from the evil works of witchcraft for 2 long years. Thick black hair like that of a buffalo grew and covered his body. His head became long and pointed. His breast also became sharp like that of a chicken. But the most horrifying of all that he suffered was, whenever he ate even just a little, he would vomit it afterwards and the vomit was black and crawling with human maggots. Because of this, Bro. Joel became so thin he was skin and bones.

One day, someone shared the Gospel of salvation to his older brother. He was invited to the worship service of JESUS MIRACLE CRUSADE INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY, where, he was told, the Lord Jesus saves and heals through the leading prayers of their Beloved Hon. Pastor Wilde Almeda.

Because Bro. Joel’s older brother or kuya (older brother in Filipino) was desperate to help ease his small brother’s suffering, he wanted to bring him to the worship service of JMCIM. But the biggest obstacle was that, they couldn’t ask permission from their mother as she was a Roman Catholic devotee and they were scared to displease her.

What Bro. Joel’s kuya did was to steal him away without their mother’s knowledge. They snuck out through the window and when they were already at a safe distance from the house, Bro. Joel’s kuya cried out to God, “Lord, if You’re real in Jesus Miracle Crusade, please heal my brother and I promise You that we will serve You all the days of our lives!”

After the worship service that night, both brothers received the Lord Jesus Christ in their lives and were baptized in water in His name. A week after their baptism, Bro. Joel was completely delivered from the curse of witchcraft. Oh, hallelujah!

That happened in 1988. Both brothers, still very young then, served the Lord faithfully, singing in the choirs, beginning in Children’s Choir, Youth/Singles Choir, then in Jesus Finest Generation Choir. Bro. Joel’s kuya, Bro. Zaldy, sings in Adults Choir to this day.

In 1991, three years after the brothers were saved, their mother also received the Lord and was baptized in water in Jesus’ name. She surrendered her witchcraft paraphernalia to the church. During that time, she was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer and had been bleeding nonstop for months. Her doctors told her that she had only a very short time to live if she didn’t undergo surgery and chemotherapy. But because they did not have the monetary capability to pay such medical expenses and since they were already serving the Lord in JMCIM, they chose to trust in God for her healing.

Bro. Joel’s beloved mother was completely healed of her ovarian cancer. Hallelujah!

United, their family prayed for the father to come back to them. God answered this prayer as well. Bro. Joel’s father finally went back home to his family and he also received the Lord Jesus, freeing him from the bondage of his many vices.

To this day, Bro. Joel’s parents and the whole family are serving the Lord faithfully.

ALL PRAISE, HONOR, GLORY, MAJESTY AND THANKSGIVING BELONG TO OUR LORD GOD ALMIGHTY – OUR DEAREST LORD JESUS!

Healed of Witchcraft: The Testimony of Sis. Maria Fe Lible

Sister Maria Fe Lible testifying in the pulpit during a Friday overnight worship service of JMCIM at Amoranto Stadium, Q. C.

Sis. Maria Fe had big dreams in life. Having had a hard life growing up, she dreamed of bettering her life by working abroad. She got a job in Bangkok, Thailand and she truly believed this was her ticket to a better, more prosperous life, a fulfilment of her dreams. But after a year of working there, she got into a strife with her boss driving her suddenly out-of-job, no money, and out in the streets of Bangkok.

She didn’t want to go back home to the Philippines for that would mean an end to her dreams. And even if she wanted to, she didn’t have money to buy a plane ticket. So, she wandered in a foreign land, hoping she would find work. She slept in bus terminals and other public places where she could be safe.

When she could no longer endure her hard life there, she cried and prayed to God to help her. She got help and she was able to fly back home to the Philippines. But when she arrived home and just starting to recover from her horrendous experience in Thailand and nursing her shattered dreams, she developed a hard mass in her throat. This made her life miserable. It was hard for her to swallow and it brought her nasty headaches everyday. She went to different doctors, trying to find cure for her disease, but they all told her she needed a surgery to save her.

She also went to different “quack” doctors, and they had only one “diagnosis”: Sis. Maria Fe was a victim of witchcraft. They warned her never to undergo surgery for this wasn’t the remedy for witchcraft. They adamantly emphasized to her that surgery might cost her her life.

With an illness and dreams that would never be realized, Sis. Maria Fe felt like she would lose her mind. She cried out to God in anguish. By the wonderful workings of God, she met a sister from JESUS MIRACLE CRUSADE INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY who invited her to the worship service. Sis. Maria Fe willingly went with her. She wanted rest from all her suffering.

On the day she attended the worship service, she was suffering from an excruciating headache. But as soon as she received the Lord Jesus Christ and was baprized in water in His name, she was instantly relieved from her headache. She went home with the stirrings of new hope in her heart and soul. She felt happy for the first time in years.

But the cyst in her throat did not get healed at once. She was persecuted on all sides for not wanting to undergo surgery, until her fledgling faith succumbed to outside pressure. She underwent surgery to remove the cyst lodged in her throat.

After surgery, she lost her voice. She whispered hoarsely when she spoke. The doctor told her she might regain her voice in six months but that wasn’t a guarantee. She went home without a voice and to add to her misery, the cyst that was removed from her throat was multiplied. She developed more cysts, up to twenty in all. This made her desperate. It was true what the quack doctors told her: surgery wouldn’t solve her problem for her disease was a product of witchcraft.

She went back to the worship service of JMCIM and there she surrendered her life and let go of all her woes. She also sought to be prayed over and laid hands on by the beloved Hon. Pastor Wilde Almeda. After about a week, she regained her voice, and all her cysts in her neck disappeared one by one.

When Sis. Maria Fe testifies in the pulpit, one sees the marks and scars on her neck where the cysts had been. When she testifies, she shouts at the top of her voice, relishing the strength and healing the Lord has blessed her with.

Sis. Maria Fe continues to serve the Lord fervently to this day.

Halleluiah! To God be the glory!
