God is the healer who uses me with His unction

Pastor believes he is a servant of God

“She’s dead,” church members screamed. Everybody in the church was in a panic as they turned to their pastor. “Pick up the body,” Apostle Willie J. Jones of God’s Calling Gospel Holiness Church, Inc., said. One of the ministers picked up the body of the elderly woman and her body fluid started to fall on him. “In the name of Jesus, live,” Jones said. Nothing happened. After asking those who didn’t believe to go to the kitchen, [no one moved]. Jones tried again. “Everybody from the smallest to the greatest, start praising God,” he commanded. “All of a sudden after the people started praising God, life came back in her,” Minister Zachery Peacock, said. “I’ve never witnessed anything like that in my life.” The woman lived four to five more years after that experience. Throughout the Bible and presently, believers have called God many names in attempts to describe him, God’s Calling Gospel Holiness and Apostle Jones knows God to be a healer and miracle worker.
