Pastor and social media influencer Jacob Coyne, from Vancouver, Washington, uses his phone to reach people for Jesus. He logs on to his Instagram account, goes live and shares from the Bible, bringing encouragement and praying for people during his live streaming sessions.
On July 27, Coyne opened his Bible to Matthew 28, pressed the "Go Live" button on his phone and then told his virtual congregation of almost 82,000 followers that he would be preaching about "Your calling in the Lord," a message that led to a virtual altar call.
After 20 minutes of preaching, Coyne provided an opportunity for people to virtually join him to talk and pray. He explained from Mark 16:18 that we are told to "lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."
People joined Coyne in the video chat, and the last to join was a teenaged boy named Genesis. The young man had dislocated his right shoulder while playing basketball and said he couldn't move his arm without excruciating pain and he described as a 9.5 out of 10.
Coyne said to his new friend, "Wouldn't that be awesome if Jesus healed you right now?"
The teen replied, "Yo! That would be awesome!"
Coyne continued, "Bro, Llet's pray right now that the Holy Spirit will touch you and that Jesus, His hand will touch that shoulder of yours, and you'd be able to move it just as well as your other arm."
He then asked everyone watching to join in prayer for the young man.
Coyne prayed for healing in the authority of Jesus' name, commanding the shoulder to realign. "Every muscle, bone ligament and tendon, be realigned in the name of Jesus Christ. I command all the pain to leave right now."
Live on screen, Genesis' shoulder visibly popped back into place. His face filled with surprise and wonder, as Jesus had just healed his shoulder and removed all the pain.
Genesis described what he was feeling as "electricity" flowing through him. He then felt a click and had full range of motion, and the pain was gone! He kept poking his shoulder in amazement at the physical healing that had just taken place.
"I came on this live because my faith was wavering between Islam and Christianity and that, f Jesus healed my arm, then I would literally give my life to Jesus," he admitted to Coyne.
Coyne then took the opportunity to lead his new friend in a prayer inviting Jesus into his life. He asked Genesis if he had a Bible and encouraged him to read the book of John. He then direct-messaged him so he can help Genesis grow with Jesus.
Coyne used the tools he had in his hand to share the gospel and pray for people, which led to a miraculous healing.
What's in your hand, and how does God want you to use it?
