In the worst of times when the immorality of man has equaled that of beasts, and spirituality has been reduced to confusion by the craftiness of Satan, by inventing many religions; when man’s inventions and technological achievements threaten his very own self to extinction, and the universe ushers into self-destruction; when all attempts to stop criminality and war have failed, and when every knowledge of GOD is supposed as a vain escape from reality by the foolest of fools; through it all, the true Church of the Living God has come out triumphant! The LORD GOD has given full authority to His Church to overcome all the power of darkness — hope still shines after all!
Matthew 16:18 “… upon this rock I will build my Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”
It would be utterly impossible to put into writing all the wonderful works the great GOD has wrought His Church, the JESUS Church, through its spiritual arm, the JESUS MIRACLE CRUSADE INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY. Here is just a very small bit of a vast, colorful picture.
Hailing from the province of Surigao Sur, the divine call to God’s service came to young man named WILDE E. ALMEDA, with newly added wife, LINA, in the late 1960’s. Later to rise as the Philippine’s leading Evangelist-Pastor, Wilde (pronounced as “Weeldee”) was then afflicted with an acute insomnia owing to years of hard work in political campaigning for power and fortune.
Hopeless throught medical cure, the menacing disease caused him to be suicidal, until one day, a Christian share to him the Word of GOD. He gave his heart to JESUS and instantly got healed of the curse he suffered for 6 long years. He then realized that the Gospel is true and that GOD answers prayer. From a former religious fanatic, womanizer and gambler, he was converted to true Christianity, and completely gave up his life of sin.
In obedience to GOD’s call, the young couple started to embark on a spiritual journey, leaving behind their affluent political life which promised more wealth and social status, and gave up even all their source of livelihood — the gold and silver mining business, acres of fish pond and coconut plantation — which would have soon earned millions of money daily, choosing rather to follow the footsteps of the LORD JESUS in living an austere life, fully consecrated and dedicated to GOD.
The faithful couple was blessed with 12 lovely children endowed with exceptional talents especially in Gospel music — Rachel, Annaliza, Leah, Divine Grace, Wilde James, Esther, Faith, Joy, Rebecca, Ruthie, Elizabeth, and Charity Anne. But two of their precious siblings, Divine Grace and Rebecca, went to be with the LORD; a very grievous part in more than fifteen years of difficult testing and trials, reminiscent of Job’s experience. Through persecutions, financial want, worldly temptations, threat of sickness, starvation and even death, they remained steadfast in faith and never compromised the Truth of the Gospel. The hand of GOD was mightily guiding them through spiritual battles, arming them with weapons needed to gain the victory: steadfast prayer with daily praise and worship, continual study and meditation on the Holy Scriptures, kneeling hours on end interceding for the Church and for the salvation of the lost, constant fasting repeated through the years and holding evangelistic crusades. They completely depended on faith for GOD to supply all the needs of GOD’s work, never begging for financial support from any person or institution.
Their hearts continually throbbed for the cries of the poor, the needful and the lost, burdened for others to receive GOD’s mercy. They rejoiced to see repentant souls humbling themselves before GOD more than anything else. This irresistible force constrained them to embrace this way of life through the years of tears and pain, obeying the Spirit’s leading.
In one occasion, when the couple felt the hardest trial they had, thinking they could not take it anymore, they asked GOD, after praying for several hours, if they will continue with their Ministry or just work for money and financially support the Church. The LORD spoke through His Holy words in the Bible, saying:
“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.” – 2 Timothy 4:2-5
Rejoicing for GOD’s message confirming their call, they went on serving GOD even more fervently. Nothing held them back from doing GOD’s will and boldly fought satan all the way. They obeyed GOD with fear and trembling, seeking only the things that please Him and fulfilling the gift of the fivefold ministry of the Church: Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher, for the perfecting of the saints.
Ephesians 4:11-13 “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of CHRIST: till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of GOD, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of CHRIST.”
Through the years, the hand of GOD moved mightily in the Church, healing incurable sicknesses, infirmities and diseases, converting stone-hearted sinners to become saints, working miracles beyond human comprehension, defying the course of nature. The LORD JESUS promised these, and even more:
John 14:12 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father.”
Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
Today, only the grace and mercy of our loving GOD, the JESUS Miracle Crusade International Ministry (JMCIM) is one of the largest and most successful Apostolic churches based in the Philippines with millions of followers nationwide and still growing by the grace of our loving God. JMCIM is led by internationally known pastor and end-time prophet of God, beloved honorable Evangelist Wilde E. Almeda, and his loving wife, beloved and honorable Assistant Pastor Lina C. Almeda.
JMCIM now has established numerous outreach stations or chapters widely scattered all over the Philippines and other countries like the United States, Canada, Asia (Japan, Singapore, Hongkong, Macao, South Korea, Taiwan, Cambodia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan, Australia), Europe (The United Kingdom, Italy) and more are being opened promised by our loving God for His gospel to be spread entire the nation.
Matthew 24:14: ―And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come
Millions witness to have experienced the great miracles of GOD in the JMCIM. Incurable sicknesses and infirmities have been healed without the use of medicine but by faith in the name of JESUS, to which even doctors attest, proven by documentary evidences. Divine healing of cancers, diabetes, dumbness, mental disorders, tuberculosis, migraine, leprosy, aids, asthma, hepatitis, nervous breakdown, and more have been recorded. Youthful vigor health have been restored.
Vices, bad habits, and the degenerate behavior in general have been eradicated – smoking, alcoholism, drug addiction, gambling, womanizing, adultery, fornication, etc. Drug dependents need not have to be detoxified of the chemical inside rehabilitation centers – the power of GOD did the job more efficiently and effectively.
Scores of homosexuals, lesbians, prostitutes, callboys, rapists and others of the kind have been set free from their perversions. Demons which have been enslaved them have been driven out completely.
Heartbreaking problems, including those regarding family and marital relationships that have been crumbled, have been solved. Broken homes, which is one great factor in the deterioration of an individual’s values which in turn affects the society outside, have been mended, and the family preserved.
Poor folks have obtained financial and material prosperity by obedience to the Gospel. The nightmare of poverty has been done away with through faith in GOD.
3 John 2 “Beloved I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
Social liabilities, the so-called outlaws and bad guys – hardcore communists, rebels, terrorists, abusive military men, mercenaries, holduppers, kidnappers, snatchers, robbers, thieves, gangsters and other hardened criminals – tamed by the conviction of the Holy Spirit, have surrendered their lives to the LORD and are now law-abiding, peace-loving and responsible citizens.
Large scale onslaught of communism, terrorism and criminality have been prevented through relentless crusades with prayer and fasting.
Christians on fire serving the LORD have time and again proved to be invulnerable to guns and other deadly weapons, claiming fulfillment of Isaiah 54:17, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of Me, saith the LORD.”
The dead being raised back to life have been common in the JMCIM circle, proving that GOD’s word is never outdated:
Matthew 10:7 and 8 “And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.”
Aborted rape cases have been reported and documented – sisters have been saved by forceful shouts of rebuke in the name of JESUS, commanding the rapist to either freeze or flee. Likewise, killers, snatchers, holduppers, robbers, etc. had better not have to do with the children of GOD or they might end up in the stocks or running away in consternation or even dying by GOD’s vengeance. No weapons for self-defense used, not even martial arts, but by the powerful name of JESUS.
In the name of JESUS, demon-possessed individuals are delivered from legions of devils; attacking dogs turn back scampering for refuge; fiery serpents freeze and die; rabies, snake bites, scorpion stings are no hurt at all; Christians are saved from car accidents, fire, shipwreck, flood, etc. Through the TV programs of the JMCIM, by touching the TV screen as point of contact, televiewers could simultaneously claim GOD’s miracles in one time alone right in the privacy of their homes.
On July 2000, the world was surprised by Evangelist Almeda’s daring act, bringing with him 12 prayer warriors, ascended the mountains of Talipao, Sulu in Southern Philippines, to rescue the tourists held hostage by the most notorious Muslim bandits, the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG), using GOD’s power. These head-cutters snatched their captives (nine Malaysians, three Germans, two Filipinos, two Finns, two French, two South Africans, one Lebanese) off Sipadan of Malaysia and carried them to Talipao, Sulu to peddle them for a huge ransom. By fasting and prayer, the evangelist succeeded in softening the Abu Sayyaf terrorists, and finally they released absolutely all the hostages individually and by groups!
But a military assault was ordered by the government to finish off the ASG. As bombs and cannons exploded and machine gun bullets rained on the place turning it into a no man’s land; properties were destroyed, and scores of government soldiers, Abu men, and civilians alike were noised to have died and wounded in the all-out war. News immediately flashed, the evangelist and his prayer warriors were executed by the Abu terrorists because of the military offesive! But on October 1, 2000, after more than two weeks of the bombing operation, Evangelist Wilde E. Almeda, together with the complete number of the prayer warriors, emerged from the war-torn Talipao jungle alive and unscathed! Indeed a chain of miracles has been performed by the omnipotent GOD once more!
No doubt, with all these testimonies plus innumerable others, the credibility of the power of the Gospel of CHRIST in the JMCIM is an established fact. And with all the problems besetting the world today – Ozone depletion which is approaching 100% to finally burn the planet earth, cosmological catastrophes, nuclear war which is just a push button away, terrorism and criminality, poverty, disease, etc. – the ultimate solution, the evangelist said, is for this Gospel to be preached throughout the world (Matthew 24:14), with the cooperation of the leaders of the nations, before it gets too late. Mass conversion to the truth would finally end the chaos and start the reign of peace and love with the reign of the Lord JESUS CHRIST (Isaiah 9:6).
Since the birth of JMCIM until now, the JESUS Church has grown by leaps and bounds; millions are experiencing the genuine conversion. Powerful testimonies of GOD’s signs, wonders and miracles by the brethren spread like wildfire, sweeping across the country and now being felt by the world. And what’s even more wonderful, this awesome power is not a monopoly for a chosen few – it is every believer’s rightful heritage!
Radio, TV, Online and live crusades and services have been indispensable in evangelization of more and more souls. Pastors and missionaries and various leaders of various religious groups, seeking solution to their erring faith and have lost enthusiasm for GOD due to the absence of Biblical miracles, have now joined in, received re-baptism, and are now back on their feet as empowered and effective soul-winners and disciples of Christ.
