Nothing Is Impossible with God by Aldy Perez
We had a visiting pastor speak at our woman’s luncheon in November. Her name is Aldy Perez and her testimony is incredible. Aldy’s daughter translated for her mom.
Mark 9:23 ‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for him who believes.”
Luke 1:37 “For nothing is impossible with God.”
What does the word “impossible” mean? Definitions are: something inconceivable, unthinkable, vain, hopeless, useless, impossible, inaccessible, illogical, insufferable, etc.
In our lives we face impossible situations that we cannot deal with on our own. When we go through the impossible, when we feel that it is impossible for “I”, we need to remember Jesus Christ. Before Him everything is always possible.
In Mark 9:23, if it is impossible for us, remember, that nothing is impossible for Jesus. The man in this story of healing was a desperate father, desperate for his son who was demon possessed. He foamed at the mouth, was violent, thrown into the water and fire, and the father of the boy comes to Jesus. The father gets close to Jesus. Mark 9:21-24 Jesus asked the boy’s father, “How long has he been like this?” “From childhood,” he answered. “It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.” ” ‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for him who believes.” Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
The father said to Jesus, “If you can…have mercy on us.” Jesus loves it when we believe that everything is possible with Him. Jesus didn’t look at the boy and say “Forget it, it’s not important, no problem, leave him.” Jesus showed that this was important to Him. Imagine crying out for your child and then hear God say, “if you can believe anything is possible.” The man immediately answered, “I do believe, help me overcome my unbelief.” Jesus rebuked the evil spirit and the boy was healed. Mark 9:25-27 When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the evil spirit. “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, “I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.” The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, “He’s dead.” But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up.
Jesus is the WORD OF AUTHORITY. There is no authority that compares with Jesus. He gave the WORD and it became true. IF you can believe. This required action from the Father, not from the child. IF you can believe you will be healed. It was the man’s option to believe. IF you can believe you will have your answer.
Aldy then spoke about her story, which she called the story of impossibles.
She came to this country from Venezuela in 2000. She and her husband’s purpose was to work in the church, their family was a ministry family. Her husband was a pastor and they had two daughters one 3 months old, the other older. They moved to Connecticut and worked with Pastor Angel Hernendez, and pastored the church with this pastor. Their church grew from a few members to a very large church. Then in 2002, they started another church in New Haven, Connecticut, a church that went from 0 to four members during the first service (her, her husband, and her two kids). They just praised the Lord and the presence of the Lord came to their church and they received a touch of God. New people started to come a week later and after 2 years they had 40 members. During this time there were many trials and satan kept trying to interfere with their ministry and attack the church.
After their church became established and they were comfortable in their position, God told them that they had to move, they were not to stay with the church that they had established. They told God that it was impossible that they couldn’t leave, they had worked so hard and the church was established. But God told them not to stay there, to move to Kingston, New York. They left their church in good hands and moved to Kingston.
At first they did not understand why God wanted them to move here. God speaks and God is in the lead, and they obeyed His directions. But those who are in God’s will and doing God’s purpose will willingly do His will. They were new in Kingston, having moved here in 2003, and pastored the church that they newly founded. Aldy then had a son, their only boy in America. Many years went by and there were trials with the work that they were doing for the Lord. Their church grew, everything was under God’s control. They thought things were fine, and the church was established.
Then in 2007, Aldy told us when the impossible stands before us, give thanks for the impossible.
Aldy was not feeling good. She was tired, had headaches, and was overweight, which affected her health. Her knees hurt, she had a heart murmur, ear infection, and many other infections. Her whole body was on fire with fever. She and her husband went to Albany to get these symptoms checked out and to have many blood tests.
The new treatments she received seemed to be working and she was getting better. But November 13, 2007 she received a phone call at 9 AM. Her husband answered the phone and the doctor told her husband the terrible diagnosis – leukemia, the worst kind. Aldy told us, imagine your husband telling you this while you are sitting at the kitchen table. Aldy said she was in shock and kept saying that this cannot be, this is impossible.
A pastor From Florida had already spoken with them a few months previous to this and given them words of encouragement and blessings. They were in God’s will, doing what God wanted, and yet this terrible diagnosis came to them.
Aldy told us, imagine having a death sentence over you. A word of encouragement feels good when that happens.
They called the doctor and made plans go to the hospital to have tests. The ten days before the hematologist’s appointment were the worst days of her life. This was very hard for Aldy and she was still in shock. Her thoughts kept going to her three children. She and her husband would look at their faces and then ask God what do you want us to do? Aldy said that she thanked God for her husband and his encouragement of her. They gathered their children who were now 12, 9, and 6, and talked to them about the situation, and they prayed. Her 13 year old daughter gave a very mature answer. She told her mom that the same power who healed her father would heal her mom. The other children said the same thing, that God was going to heal Aldy.
November 27 they went to the specialist, a good doctor, and for the first time saw the results of the bone marrow exam, a painful procedure. Aldy had leukemia of the worst kind, but it was very common to treat. Aldy told us she started to cry, and wanted to be strong but couldn’t. Her treatments would start the next day.
She entered the hospital for chemotherapy, a very strong dose of this for her leukemia was very aggressive and they needed to start the treatment right away. She sat in the car with her husband next to her and she cried. She said a prayer to God (Heather’s note, I took down as much of this as I could), “Lord you know. You brought us to you, and everything that is an impossible, is not impossible for you. You will do your word. Because of you, we are healed. We say to you God, I don’t accept this. I rebuke it in the name of Jesus. You know everything Lord. I will come out victorious.”
She went through her first day with an attitude of faith. She knew God would come and do the Impossible and it would be something big.
November 29 she started her chemo and had a week of chemo – seven bags of chemo, one per day. It was very strong and the doctor told her that she would physically deteriorate as the bad cells would die, but also the good cells would die. But this was the only way to treat this leukemia. This was what the doctor said, but this was NOT WHAT GOD SAID.
The first five days were great then she felt a bit dizzy. She was joyful in the hospital singing and playing praise music, giving glory to God. Five days after this seven day chemo treatment she felt there was great progress. Then her blood numbers and platelets then started to drop. She began to feel weak and dizzy. She had to go to the bathroom and her stomach hurt. She had a lot of headaches and morphine had to be administered. It was horrible. When she went to the bathroom she would bleed a lot, not just in her urine but from her nose and moth. Everywhere. She was very weak, and liquids began to stay in her body. Her weight ballooned to 200 pounds, a huge weight for her small frame. She was feeling very weak and had much pressure from the pain and was very sick.
Her doctor told her that she had to be moved to intensive care. She would close her eyes and praise God. She felt very close to God and felt His presence, and knew that He was with her. As her body deteriorated her spirit grew. She told God that she knew He was with her, He was in the same boat as her. Aldy remembered the time when the disciples were in the same boat with Jesus and there was a storm raging around the boat. Jesus was in the boat with them, but they were still afraid and woke Jesus up. He calmed the storm. Jesus told them, “Oh ye of little faith, why are you afraid?”
The word stayed in her heart and she went to God with her fears. She told God that in her storm He was in her boat. She asked God to tell the storm to be calm.
Aldy asked us, “What is your storm?” Don’t forget that Jesus is in your storm.
Aldy knew that Jesus was there in her storm, and she was to stay in the authority of His Word, to just be still. The doctor sent for her husband and told him to be prepared for the worst. The nurses watched for the worst, and all felt that she was about to die.
December 9, after 10 days of treatment everyone was waiting for her death. She could not stand, and she had to go to the bathroom with someone. She was all bruised from sitting on her bed, and every time someone touched her a bruise would form. She fainted in the bathroom and someone picked her up. All of her was in pain, her legs, knees, arms, body was in pain. She said to God. “You are God. You are God. I know I will not die.”
Aldy’s husband was desperate. He prayed and heard the voice of God. He was told to proclaim with his mouth that God is good. It does not matter what he sees about Aldy. God is good. Her husband said that even if Aldy dies God is still good. God is Lord, and Aldy was in His hands. There was a war of prayer, fighting for Aldy’s spirit.
December 10, Aldy had a beautiful experience with God. This was during the worst part of her treatment, and one night she laid on her hospital bed, closed her eyes, and saw curtains. The room got dark and she saw a terrible darkness at one end of the room. On the other side was a beautiful light. There was a battle for her life, but God was in the brightness of the Light and He told her, “I will heal you.” She received the Word of God and started to speak about His love for His kingdom. He showed her that the city of Kingston was a great darkness, that there was a cancer in the city. That it was taking over the whole city the same way that Aldy’s cancer was taking over her body. God then told her that he would show her that as he healed her body, He would heal the cancer of the city. Then she understood the purpose of her cancer. How God had permitted this leukemia so that he could show her how he would heal the city. She started to see terrible sins that were practiced in Kingston – witchcraft and many things that are not right. Sexual perversion and things she had no idea existed. God showed her that this was the cancer of her city. She saw children who were abused, violence, and heard their cries. They cannot see the Lord. God told Aldy that he was going to heal the cancer in her body with the brightness of light the same way that he will renovate Kingston. And then told her, “I am the Lord. I am real.”
December 11, at 10 pm she was having a nice experience with God, a beautiful revelation of the Lord went through her whole body, and showed her all the intoxication in her body. God told her what to eat and what not to eat. He told her that He would instruct her how to live, and she would have to leave her old lifestyle and ways. When you eat this it will heal you, if she ate what God told her not to eat it would not go well with her body. Often we get sick by neglect of doing and eating what is God’s best for us. God told Aldy that He taught his people how to eat healthy. When we break his rules then we start to have problems.
Then the Lord told Aldy, “Now I will heal you.” She started to feel warmth going through her whole body. She could feel the Lord, as waves of warmth went through her body. He was healing her. He told her I am healing your body. I am healing your blood with my blood. She felt power for 2 hours. At midnight she got up out of bed and started to run. She felt so good and so strong. God will make her flower. She saw God making her a beautiful flower. Aldy was healed with the power of God. Her bruises disappeared, she spoke in tongues, and began to scream with joy. One of the sisters in the hospital ran into her room to see what was going on. She told the nun that Jesus healed her. She was filled with the fire of the Lord and it made the pain go away, and she received her healing. The nun noticed a brightness on Aldy’s face. Jesus had healed her.
Aldy called her husband and he came to the hospital fast. In her phone call she called him, honey. He thought it was weird that the nurses called him that, then he realized it was Aldy that called him. When he saw Aldy, she was up and praising the Lord. She told him, “Honey, the Lord has healed me.” Then He started praising God. Lord you are so good.
The next day the doctor came in and saw her sitting and saw the brightness in her face. She needed Aldy to take one test. And Aldy told the doctor that she had an experience with God and He healed her. The doctor did not understand, and still wanted to do a test. Aldy agreed to the test and the doctor did the bone marrow test.
Aldy told us, “Amen, Hallelujah, and the joy of the Lord is my strength.” The extraordinary strength of God gave her strength.
Psalm 103:1-5 Bless the LORD, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Aldy could feel that good feeling of God in her. After taking the test, and waiting three days for the results, the doctor came in with the papers shaking her head. She said to Aldy, “I don’t know what happened. Your leukemia has disappeared. It’s as if you never had it.”
God is real. He did it! Aldy was totally healed in 13 days. Dr. God did it!!! God is good.
Many of us have obstacles in front of us that seem like giants. They look like they are planted in one place and will not move. But IF you can believe, EVERYTHING is possible with God. Aldy believed, and receive her healing. We too can believe and receive.
Now Aldy and her family are working to heal the cancer in the city of Kingston. God told Aldy, “My power and authority is with you and any who are sick will be healed.”
Aldy then prayed with us for healing of the things that we need healed in our lives.
Her website for the church is www.montedeoracion.org where there are pictures – the website is in Spanish.
I am praying this testimony blessed you. I love hearing other’s testimonies because it helps to build my faith in God.
Have a wonderful Saturday.
