Eddy Yong, a third-generation temple owner, encountered Jesus Christ who gave him the gift of healing. Through our Lord Jesus, Eddy has witnessed many miraculous healing in His mighty name, though no healing is better than the gift of salvation itself.
“In my life, the Lord has saved me from the pits of destruction, turning my life 180 degrees. Salvation is the greatest gift!” said Eddy Yong at a Full Gospel Businessmen (FGB) Meeting at the TA One Chapter on 5 Dec, headed by Yesu das.
Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from the distress. He sent forth his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave.
FRESH BLOOD ON A SONG SHEET
Eddy was first introduced to his spiritual gift when he was invited to speak in a FGB meeting. Closing his eyes, he prayed for the Holy Spirit to take over so that he could speak to a group of Christians who were mature in their faith. At that time, he had just accepted Christ into his life.
And lo and behold, when he opened his eyes after prayer, he saw fresh red blood outlining his thumb on the sheet of the worship songs that was passed to him. But oddly enough, his friend Sebastian Cheng who gave him the sheet had no cut on him.
Where did this fresh blood come from? Underneath the sheet, a book was accidentally passed to Eddy as well, entitled ‘The Overcoming Blood’ written by Bob Lamb. What a coincidence! Looking back, he realized that this vision was a prophetic sign to demonstrate the healing gift he was about to receive from God.
MEETING JESUS AND DEMONS IN ICU
Crossing paths at a coffee shop
Nevertheless, Eddy did not realize that he had this gift until August 2011 on a Sunday morning before church service. Having breakfast in a packed coffee house, Eddy and his family shared a table with a man called Mr Ho.
In their conversation, Eddy learned that Ho was a Christian as well. But due to Ho’s casual attire, Eddy speculated that he did not go to church on that Sunday. Hence, in his zealousness, Eddy said to Ho, “Brother, the Lord blesses you six days. How can you not spend two hours in the church?”
In amusement, Ho replied that his son Joshua was having a severe neuron-brain disease that required much medical attention at home, hence his absence from church. Both of them had a good laugh after Eddy apologized profusely. They had a good fellowship that morning, even exchanging contact information. Little did Eddy know, this meeting would prepare Eddy for his first spiritual healing in the name of Jesus.
Joshua in the grip of death
Four months after that faithful meeting, God awoke Eddy one morning at 4 AM, and the name ‘Ho’ appeared in front of Eddy. Burdened with concern, Eddy prayed for Ho and asked God to reveal to him the message behind such vision.
Later that morning, he called Ho and found out that Joshua was admitted in grave condition to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Eddy then offered to pray for Joshua and promised that he would visit the son on that day itself.
But somehow, he forgot about it until two days later when he drove down to Kuala Lumpur for a meeting, which was later cancelled. Passing by the General Hospital, the Holy Spirit prompted him to visit Joshua.
Out of a feeling of obligation, Eddy went into the hospital but he could only stand in front of the ICU door because not every visitor could enter. Furthermore, he could not contact Ho at that time. After praying, Eddy wanted to leave when suddenly, the doors opened. He went in and lying before him, he could recognize Joshua from the picture Ho showed him before. Joshua’s body was infused with tubes, connected to a machine.
Standing in front of the bed, Eddy prayed, “Oh Lord, have mercy and heal him. Don’t let him suffer. Let him be with you in eternal life.” A woman nearby heard his prayer and started wailing, “You must be brother Eddy! You’re supposed to come on Tuesday! Why you come only today?” The woman turned out to be Joshua’s mother. She was crying so loudly that they had to leave the ICU.
The Lord Rebuke you, Devil
Joshua’s mother told Eddy that the doctor had informed her and her husband that their son would die that day, with an oxygen reading of only 58 versus a healthy level of 100. If the oxygen level furthers degrade to a lower level, the nurse would inject morphine (doctors will be cutting the oxygen supply) to allow Joshua to die peacefully. At the time, the feeling of guilt gnawed inside Eddy. Had he came earlier to pray for Joshua, maybe Joshua would not need to die.
Both of them started crying, to which later Ho joined them in their sorrow. Raising his voice, Eddy prayed to comfort them but he was suddenly filled with the Holy Spirit. And in fire of the Spirit, he boldly pronounced, “Joshua will not die today. The oxygen level will go up to 90!”
Just as they were walking towards the ICU, before the door opened to Joshua room, Eddy heard that devil who spoke to him, “The boy will die now. When the doors opened, you will see the nurse injecting the morphine.”
But on that morning, Eddy read Jude which spoke about how the archangel Michael was disputing with the devil, yet he did not dare to bring a slander accusation to the devil. Instead, the archangel said, “The Lord rebuke you!” (Jude 1:9). In the same way, Eddy shouted, “The Lord rebukes you!”
Joshua belongs to Jesus!
And just before Eddy entered the ICU, as the doors slid open—in a blink of an eye— he saw Jesus Christ in a white robe, with long hair, laying his hands on the boy. In the ICU, they saw Joshua’s oxygen level shot up to 90 before their eyes. All of them praised God and rejoiced! They continued to pray.
Eddy stayed with the parents for another few hours until Joshua’s condition had become stable. But suddenly, he could smell a foul odor akin to a decomposed rat in the drain, though Ho and his wife could not smell anything. They checked Joshua to see if the smell came from him but they found nothing. At that time, Eddy knew that the smell signified the demon of death was in the room. The smell wafted in and out of the room, as they kept praying in tongues. In fact, the oxygen level increased to 93.
But when it came to the moment Eddy wanted to go home, Joshua’s oxygen level dropped down to 51 again. This time, Eddy proclaimed, “Jesus!” Again, he felt the strength in prayers and said, “Joshua belongs to Jesus. All the spirits that cast down Joshua, I bind you up back to the gates of hell, in Jesus Name!”
After that, Joshua kept burping and released an awful smell. All three of them—Eddy, Ho, and Ho’s wife—prayed in tongues while fixing their eyes on the machine. Joshua’s oxygen level returned to 90 again. Eddy finally left the ICU room to go home, after having witnessed Joshua’s stabilized condition.
Three days later, Joshua was transferred from ICU to the high-dependency ward, and then to the normal ward. Finally, he was able to return home to celebrate Chinese New Year!
“If you want the Holy Spirit, will your Father in Heaven not give freely to you? The Holy Spirit gives power. There are many lost people out there,” said Eddy Yong.
If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him
