A Note From The Editor

Hello to all of my sisters and brothers in Christ Jesus. Thank you to all our sponsors, advertisers and our supporters! You all are so wonderful and I thank God for you! From the ones that are new readers to those who have just about every issue. You can also read past issues of Signs Wonders and Miracles at WWW.SWMMAG.COM and you can also give us your testimony. To the new readers who want to know how this magazine started, back in 2005 I was healed of a cancerous tumor that stunned even the doctors and specialist when they were trying to find out if the cancerous tumor was even removable. Well indeed it was! Not for them to do surgery though, but for God to remove it! When God took the tumor away, the hospital had no choice but to release me from their hospital. God is great! I asked God if I could do something for Him since He had done such wonderful amazing miracles in my life. That‘s when God allowed me to start Signs, Wonders and Miracles Magazine! To share what God has done, and to also share the testimonies of others who want to share theirs with the world. There are so many people that do not know that God is real! This is an outlet for the world to know how GOOD GOD IS! Therefore this magazine is a free quarterly magazine to the public, this way not only Christians will know, but people of different religions, nations, and backgrounds will know that JESUS is the only one who died for all mankind, then three days later God raised Jesus from the dead, and He now sits at His Fathers right hand in heaven! ( Acts 7:55-56 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.) Also Read: ( Hebrews 10:12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;) Jesus will return and the time is soon! It is time to share with everyone the good news and show how God loves us so much that He sent His only Begotten Son to be the sacrifice for you and me, this way we can spend eternity with Him! EVERLASTING LIFE! (Heb. 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment) I hope you enjoy this issue and please fill free to share the miracles that God has done in your life with us! We will try our best to put your testimony in one of our future issues, but we cannot promise that every miracle will be placed in this magazine due to the amount of people who are sending their testimonies to us. Due to the seriousness of this magazine, we may ask for doctors statements, or even witnesses from your events before placing your article in our magazine. May God bless you and keep you in His perfect peace. In Gods service, Tamara Cornelius

Reverend Lugo was a host on TBN’s inspirational

Praise the Lord program. Reverend Lugo is the subject of a fascinating biography entitled Cross Roads: The Louis Lugo Story.

Crossroads: The Louis Lugo Story is the true account of a young kid raised on the streets of New York's projects. The gangs and a lifestyle of crime was his life. He was a hustler, a pusher, and eventually evolved into a man to fear. This gangster struggled every step of the way as he gambled with his life for his piece of the American dream. The young Louis Lugo struggled to escape the projects, poverty, street gangs and prisons gangs of New York in the 1970’s through the 2000s. Although the adult Louis Lugo was subsequently able to leave behind the brutal streets of New York, he was nevertheless unable to escape a continued life of violence and crime, influenced by motorcycle gangs, drug traffickers and hustlers. Through it all, Louis knew there were some lines he would not and could not cross. He served serious time in prison for serious crimes, that was the debt he paid. God watched as Louis hit rock bottom and waited patiently for Louis to open his heart to Him. By the grace of God, Louis was saved by a profound transformation, Christian faith and the inspiration of ministers, the inspiration of his uncles Nicky Cruz (Cross and The Switchblade) who is in chapter two of the book, Rev. Victor Maldonado (Out Reach for

Page 5

Youth) and Ministers, other pastors, Martial Arts Masters and Christian fellowship. Through the support and encouragement of his wife and his love for his children, Louis applied the skills he learned on the streets to his work as a mentor to those who are still where he once was. Now Louis Lugo leads youth to Jesus in his developing mission and his enduring ministry. Louis and Regina Lugo, now married for more than thirty-four years, and they have four amazing children. I invite you to book Reverend Louis Lugo at your church or event, there is no charge for him to come to your church. On Facebook please type in “Crossroads, The Louis Lugo Story” If you are interested for booking: (740) 919-0700 You can get the book on Amazon.com or barnesandnoble.com!

Signs & Wonders That Man Cannot Deny! By Kathy Craig and Pastor Cheryl D. Shook

On February 19, 2015, the Lord spoke to me to

contact Pastor John Amos and to dance at his church, Shiloh Christian Center. Immediately, I knew the two selections would be “Midnight Cry” and “The Bridal Processional” for this is the hour we are in now. But, I also knew that Pastor Amos and his congregation come together to Shiloh at 6:00 A.M. and 6:00 P.M. every Monday thru Friday to pray for our city Columbus, Ohio and for Mayor Michael B. Coleman and the other government officials. They have been doing this faithfully for the past 6 years and have not stopped! There is no doubt that God wanted to honor their dedication by blending His anointing on the two songs with His anointing that has saturated the church thru continual prayer. Originally, Shiloh Christian Center was located in Urbancrest, Ohio. The Lord spoke to Pastor Amos to relocate to Columbus. By obeying the voice of the Lord, Pastor Amos came to Columbus and clearly heard Him say that the church would be at Broad Street and Monroe. The realtor quoted the selling price as $100,000.00. Unfortunately, the bank would not approve for such a vast loan. However, God approved it by sending a stranger to Pastor Amos and handing him a check for that exact amount! It is evident that this is a set-up by God which is Holy and Divine!

Confirmation: The date of the service in which I was to dance was March 8th. Since “8” means new beginnings, I sensed in my spirit that this would be a “New Beginning” for the church. At the end of the service, Woodrow Amos stated that the Lord spoke to him and said, “This is a new beginning for the Church!” The very next day on March 9th, it was shared over the internet that Todd Bentley (a nationally known prophet) said, “March 8th is a new beginning for the Church! Likewise, Doug Addison (another known prophet) stated that God spoke to him in February of 2015 and shared that March 8th would be a new beginning for the Church. Angelic Sightings: A few weeks before the service, I had invited Prophetess Rose to Shiloh and she told me that she had already seen angels perched on the pillars there. It was as if they were waiting for their assignment. Then on March 8th, Karen Cosgrove saw three angels. A young 10 year-old, Parker McGhee saw pastel lights flickering throughout the room. He told his grandmother about what he witnessed and she told him that those were angels. Shekinah Glory: Arlene Vance took three pictures back to back and on the third one, the entire room transformed into a bright gold light. Pastor Shook did the same thing, but she thought something was wrong with her camera, so she deleted it from her phone. Fortunately, Arlene did not so we have copies of the Shekinah Glory that fell that night! Confirmation personified! Additional Outpourings! Pastor Amos has seen the glory cloud hovering in the lower level of the church. On April 25, Matt Harvey had a great praise and worship service that was streamed through the internet and it was held in that anointed place! Then on May 2nd, Connie Tucker held an Ordination Ceremony for the Father’s Heart Ministry there. After the certificates were distributed, the honorees were ministered to by the previous graduates and holy laughter infectiously permeated the room! Todd Bentley was scheduled to come to Shiloh on the 18th-20th to make a deposit of God’s anointing. On May 21st & 24th (Pentecost/Shavout). Brenda Westbeld taught a short version of the “Creation Gospel”. (Just having enough to wet our appetite for this magnificent teaching left a growing thirst for more!)


SWM Magazine

Pray Without Ceasing: Not only does Shiloh Christian Center pray daily, but Pastor Amos announced that he will have City Wide Prayer every second Friday of the month at 7:00 P.M. due to the response of the 25 churches that were represented on March 8th.. This prayer initiative began on April 10th, 2015.The next two are scheduled for June 12th and July 10th. He is encouraging all churches to join in and any church that wants to be a host is welcome to do so. This is about Unity in the Body of Christ! His River Of Life: February 2015 Prophet Chuck Pierce released a Word over Ohio that “whoever worships at the river wins the war”. This Word brings to bear great revelation for our nation, as the Ohio River is that Jordan River in America over which slaves crossed into Ohio His Promised Land of freedom and by which many will come seeking refuge in the harsh days ahead. In response Cindy and Joseph Matthew called upon nine leaders to coordinate nine worship teams at nine key cities along the Ohio River from top to bottom. As in Ezekiel 47:8-9, the Lord would send forth His wave of healing waters down the Ohio-Jordan River from East Liverpool beginning May 15 – reaching Cincinnati May 17th. As worship was ignited successively in each river city, The Lord revealed He would re-dig His ancient wells to uncap His new wells of Holy Spirit Harvest Outpouring. Moreover as His healing waters swept down the OhioJordan River, it seemed the 2005 Bob Jones Gulliver vision was being fully activated for the Harvest. The Gulliver Vision represents The Sleeping Giant of The Church – with Cleveland being the giant’s head, Columbus the giant’s heart, and Cincinnati the giant’s reproductive organs. As His river of life rushed through the birth canal of the Ohio-Jordan River – the new life from His new wells was ultimately birthed forth from the reproductive organs of Cincinnati to the rest of our nation! Several months prior the Lord has downloaded an Ohio River tri-state Trinity Strategy involving His Amish Uprising (A breaking free revolution from the bondage of Amish religious tradition) to my ministry partner Wendy Finch McCusker who was subsequently assigned the Bridgeport-St. Clairsville-Barnesville area. Indeed we found ourselves immersed in this very uprising, including Amish from Ohio and Ohio’s three tri-state areas- as

Page 7

signs, wonders and miracles spread throughout the Amish communities that had joined in His Worship Wave! Most importantly May 17, the third and final day of His Ohio River Worship Wave, was Jerusalem Day – A Set Appointed Time of The Lord – whereupon around the world the 1967 liberation and unification of Jerusalem is commemorated and celebrated. The Lord instructed Wendy to culminate His Worship Wave by gathering worshippers in nearby Jerusalem, Ohio on Jerusalem Day. With one voice and Ella on shofar we sounded His Harvest Heart cry of Return-Teshuvah – to the Four Corners of the earth. We formed a Nine-Light Living Hanukkah Rainbow Menorah representing the Nine River Cities standing with Jerusalem in unity to release liberty from Ohio His Heart in America. The Lord echoed back the next day with a rainbow bursting forth from the Healing Harvest Highway of His Ohio- Jordan River of Life.

July 19, 2015 A Continual Outpouring of The Holy Spirit!

This service will take place at Unity Church, 4211 Maize Road, Columbus, Ohio 43224 on Sunday, July 19, 2015 at 5:00 P.M. (A special prayer gathering on July 17tth will be held at the church at 5:00 P.M. in preparation for the move of the Holy Spirit.)

came down from the North. Recently, she saw another river coming from the South to meet the river from the North. These two rivers became one which included the 25 churches represented at Shiloh Christian Center/City Wide Prayer and the Ohio Statehouse where Father Heart Ministries convene regularly for prayer and intercession. We believe that the time has come for the manifestation of those visions. You are encouraged to join us there and witness what God is doing in our city of Columbus!

Can God Heal You From Your Painful Past? Absolutely!

By Prophetess Blossom Brackman

To God be the Glory! It was in the year 1977 that I graduated from High School and a whole world awaited me. I was free! Free to live the life I always dreamed I could have and no one could hold me, no one could make my decisions anymore. I was truly free I thought. I had lived a terrible horrific troubled life as a child and only by the grace of God I am alive to tell of his wonder in my life today. When I ponder on the miracles, signs and wonders that I encountered I think of how special I am to God that he has allowed me to see that He really had loved me and protected me when my life was in danger, even though I did not experience or understand His presence. My home land is Birmingham England where I was born and raised until the age of 5 years old, and then migrated to the United States with my 3 sibling after living in Jamaica the West Indies with my Grandparents for an additional 2 years until a home was prepared for us in the United States. I remember stepping off the air plane to a strange new world and seemingly feeling different. I remember feeling different because I talked different, I dressed different than my friends, and I just could not fit in among my peers and for the most part of my adult life. I could not fit in with black people because I spoke fluent British and I could not fit in with white people because I was black. I Just could not fit in anywhere! Loneliness and confusion of my existence, who I was and what I was born for and what was my purpose burned with me until I could classify my role in life instead it became a constant thorn to me. I first I was an Atheist, then an Agnostic even though I grew up around religion until It was 1975 when I was introduced to drugs as I sat on the merry-go round puffing my first “joint” Marijuana. I was hooked from that very day because I believe I found my utopia,

my religion where joy and laughter changed me to experience the world and my involvement in a whole better way. I knew I would never go back to who I was for I found the cure to my thorn. 20 years later I was now in bondage to drugs and alcohol, I no longer walk in denial for it was evident that what I thought was going to make my world a better place felt like I had open the door to Hell and no one could help me to shut the door. I knew I had to find a way out because death began to follow me everywhere and anywhere as I sought comfort in a bottle, relationship or a drug. I was now sick emotionally, spiritually and physically and I saw no hope in sight. Treatment centers, witches and sooth Sayers became a no win-win solution but I could not find that stillness, paradise or peace that I was looking for that would discover the mystery of a world I didn’t not understand that seems to have the link to what I was seeking. To no avail, I was still left with me. I had it all, I thought to myself. Money, a man, a home, fine clothing, jewelry but I was still empty and my soul was sick. One day in 1995 I came to the end of myself, I decided I was checking myself out of what I considered a horrible inauspicious, unpromising, gloomy, bleak and cruel world. So I dared God to do something with me or I was checking out from my miserable existence. Then I spoke these words as I can remember them as if it was yesterday. “God! I see the Moon and the Stars, the grass a living carpet and the trees that give me shade, the birds that sing, but I do not know you. My mama has a God and so do many talk about their gods but I don’t have a God.” As I began to speak into the atmosphere not knowing what was about to take place something came over me that made me feel at peace and I smiled, I then spoke out loud “Is that you God?” There was no answer. I asked again but this time I said, “If that is you, do it again.” Then a Miracle happened to me in that moment. My words seemed to have taken a life of it’s own as the words leaped of my tongue then suddenly the spirit of the Lord covered me once again and removed my desire for drugs and alcohol and sealed and healed my leaking wounds that drugs and alcohol could not satisfy. You see my wells had no bottoms from the pain and the abuse I had once suffered, I had come to the point that I would drink all day and night and I could not get drunk to kill the pain, I had passed a Plato many have never


SWM Magazine

cross I could drink myself sober. After realizing my condition that I was healed by the Spirit of God I celebrated and went to my favorite bar to share that God was real and that I was healed, but instead of getting a pat on my back from my clubbing partners, they looked and laughed at me. They had believed and came to the conclusion that I was going thru a phase, but what they saw instead was a Sign that God was real as they continued to watch me as the days passed by to see that something indeed had happened to me. I was not the same women they had once known. As the years began to pass I found I had hepatitis C. The following year Bladder Cancer, and that I needed my gums and bones in my mouth restored. All that I had done to abuse my body was now taking its toll. But I believed God still for my healing. As I began to have therapy for my Hepatitis C after one year of therapy I was informed not to get my hopes up, for only a handful that was suffering as myself was taking to the medication, but God healed me to the surprise of my liver specialist without a trace of Hepatitis and my blood is clean until this day. My bladder cancer, on the way to my surgery I heard a song on the radio by Shirley Caesar called “Today is your day for your miracle”. I had the surgery but there was no cancer. I had cysts arthritis, ulcers, Told I had lungs of a 90 year old woman from being a chronic smoker 2 1/2 to 3 packs a day. Today my lungs are in good standing. Oh! I know there is a God! From the first day he made himself known to me he has been healing ever since. My God is a Perfect Knowledge God! A God that knows everything! A God that is a healer and wants us set free. This is my story! This is my Testimony that God is real! In closing I am a Wonder today to those that remember a woman that could not talk, but rather mumbled. Today I am a wonder when people look me over and first judge the outside of what they see until they hear my story of what God has done in me. I am a wonder today when I travel to the nations, teach, equip, hold summits or gatherings to teach of the power of His Love and I get to be an ambassador for him and I extend my hands out to also support woman around the world through a ministry God gave me while in Israel. W.O.S.A – Women of Sovereign Authority International Support Network. Included is MOSA and KOSA. Men and Kids of Sovereign Authority with my Teaching ministry called Walking with God Ministry Int’l. Today get to experience

Page 11

the wonder of him through my life as I share his love wherever he sends me. He is so real. I just don’t love Him, I am in Love with the “Great I Am” for He died for me and saved me. Won’t you try him today? You will be glad you did! Gov. Apostle Blossom Brackman My life scripture is 1 Chronicles 29:14 10

David’s Praise to God

Therefore David blessed the LORD before all the assembly; and David said: “Blessed are You, LORD God of Israel, our Father, forever and ever. 11 Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, The power and the glory, The victory and the majesty; For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, And You are exalted as head over all. 12 Both riches and honor come from You, And You reign over all. In Your hand is power and might; In Your hand it is to make great And to give strength to all. 13 “Now therefore, our God, We thank You And praise Your glorious name. 14 But who am I, and who are my people, That we should be able to offer so willingly as this? For all things come from You, And of Your own we have given You. Blossom Brackman 44-7 Holly Dr Reading, Pa 19606 240-345-4138 www.MyWosa.com Email: Wosa0326@gmail.com

My

By Karen Augustine

name is Karen Augustine, one of the amazing testimonies that I want to share is that I had a mole underneath my arm which was to be removed on a Monday. On the Thursday before my appointment, I was at the gym. I began to think about the mole removal and how uncomfortable it would be. I was not looking forward to the removal AT ALL. So, I began to talk to God about it, and was telling him I wish I did not have to go through this procedure. So, I put my fingers on the mole and prayed. The next thing I knew it fell off in my hand. OH MY GOSH, I was so excited. I thought to myself ‘Did this really happen?! So, I wrapped the mole in a tissue and I drove home so excited. I ran into the room and shouted to my husband, "Mark, Mark, look at what just happened. The mole underneath my arm fell off into my hand after I prayed to God!� We were both very excited and started praising God. Needless to say, what an experience. Thank you Jesus!

MEDITATE ON THE WORD OF GOD

A

re you a Christian now but you don’t see the ‘fruit’ or the change in your life? Hopefully these scriptures will help you as you grow in God. Remember to be open to the Holy Spirit and surrender to the will of God because we cannot change without His help. So the first step is to cry out to God and ask God to remove any desires that you have in your heart that is not like His. Say Lord God please forgive me of my sins. I repent! Please give me a heart like yours Lord God. I need you and am no good without you. Fill me with your ways and your will. Remove the bondage that is on me and free me from addictions of…___________ (Fill in the blank) I want more of you Lord God and less of me in Jesus name Amen!

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Ephesians 4:17-32 This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, 18 having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; 19 who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.20 But you have not so learned Christ, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.25 Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,” for we are members of one another. 26 “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, 27 nor give place to the devil. 28 Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. 29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for

necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. 32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. Colossians 3:1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. 5 Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. 6 Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, 7 in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them. 8 But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. 9 Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, 10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, 11 where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all. 12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. 14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. fulfill the lust of the flesh. Please read the rest from your Bible: Galatians 5:1626 
