Testimony of Anthony Den Hartog
I like to introduce you to a practical avenue of Spiritual growth and Spiritual Healing. This is the Way of Righteousness which every one of you can tap into, if you can believe the Words of Jesus who said:
“I am come that you may have Life and have Life More Abundantly, the thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (KJV)
As you can see, Jesus without respect of person presents to you Life to the fullest without any demand. When you hear Him and you open the door of your heart he will come in and heal you from what ever your condition is, if you believe His Word. He wants you to have abundant Life for your whole Spirit, Soul and your whole body, he want you to experience all what God our Father has, he wants to bless your whole life style. All this Life is available to you through the ministry of Jesus our Lord. Touch the Hem of His Garment now and be healed of your plague. I personally have experienced His Life, when HE saved me from Alcoholic Schizophrenia and Cirrhosis of the liver.
Jesus restored my whole house hold 30 years ago.
I am still healed and rejoicing in His Salvation, so why not you? However, before Salvation can come into our experience we must come to the door which Jesus is. Most of us will first have to come to a place where Hell has become a frightening reality, as it was in my case, it is then that we begin to call upon the Name of the Lord and be saved. Like myself, at the age of 45 I had made my bed in Hell and experienced the degradation of an Alcoholic. I am still amazed at the Love of God toward me, who send His Son into me while I was still in Sin; it is amazing how much God loves us. He lifted me into a whole new perspective of Life, which I now experience to the fullest, and it is for all who can receive him by faith in the completed work of the Cross. When I say Sin, I do not mean Sin, as to what I was doing, no, no! Sin is a mistaken belief that God is holding something against me for my present condition. Jesus clearly states that His Father Judges No Man for what he or she does in this life, and has reconciled me completely to Himself not imputing my trespasses. Do you hear this?
Yes, I do have to receive Jesus the Son of God in my Heart when He knocks at the door of my heart, but when I let Him in He does not remind me how sinful I am, He shows me that He bore the Curse of Sin and disease and its outworking on His Body on the Tree, and that His Life Blood redeemed me from all my past ignorance..
John 5:21-24 24“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears my word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. “Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live.
The Holy Bible, New King James Version, ( Nashville , Tennessee : Thomas Nelson, Inc.) 1982.
In my ignorance of Truth, I did not know that Jesus already reconciled the whole of creation to Himself, do you? I did not know that God loves me unconditionally, regardless of my behavior in my ignorant state, do you? In my ignorance I did not know Jesus paid the full redemption price on Calvary and does not hold any of my trespass of His Spiritual Law of Love against me. Don't get me wrong now, there is punishment for sin, for the wages or out working of Sin (Mistaken Identity) is still death, and will continue to do so until we believe in our Heart that Jesus is God's Lamb which takes away the punishment when we receive His Grace in our Hearts, but not until then. In Adam there is no way to escape the consequences, in other words my sin punishes me, until I repent and receive the free Gift of Righteousness, it is then that I begin to reign in Life by One Christ Jesus.
In my self-pity I thought that no body loved me. I thought that God did not want any thing to do with a soaked up alkie like me, but I was wrong! All the time I was wasting my life on riotous living, the Holy Spirit constantly presented the opportunity to bring Salvation to Me, but it took some doing before I came to terms with my own Ego!
I was full of self importance, and self deceit, aren't we all?
It was only when I came to the end of my tether and was diagnosed as having cirrhosis of the liver and many other deadly vibes which were flowing through my distorted mind, that I began to call out for help. In my darkest hour I was send to an Psychiatrist, who shot me full of L.S.D in an attempt to regress me to my Childhood, thinking he could rectify the problem of rejection which I suffered under! Talking about devils and demons! Under hypnosis they began to manifest themselves on the screen of my consciousness. I began to cry out and said to the Psychiatrist:
"Look at all these Monsters out there!"
But all he said to me: "These Monsters are not out there my friend; they are a projection of your own past fears and phobias festering in your un-consciousness. Demons are manifestations of all evil, but because they have no substance or law to sustain them, they can not hurt you. Especially after Jesus awakens you to your true identity and heritage, which is Christ the Image of God's Nature and Name, these demons lose there ability to make you afraid.
Fears and phobia's are but phantoms of the past. We must therefore realize that what is known as the past does not belong to the creation of God, which is always living in the now, in the present tense continuum. The past was all washed away by the blood of the Lamb of God when Jesus died and cried out: “It is finished” When you know this deeply in your inner most being, you are free indeed! That what is known as past is the Adam man who is always condemning himself or herself for what he did yesterday, while all along our Father does not see your sin. Sin was blotted out by the Blood of Jesus. Adam is therefore but a Phantom being, existing as guilt of the past and fear of the future. All of these feelings are without nature or substance and dissolve immediately the moment we hear the Voice of Jesus in our heart and we respond to Him.
Are you not glad that Jesus spoiled all these principalities and powers of the darkness of the carnal mind, which through fear is constantly ruled by the past? However, guilt, fear and impending doom will continue to fester in our un-consciousness until we cry out for help and are re-generated of the Spirit.
- We all must be born again of the incorruptible seed of the Word of God, which lives and abides forever, before freedom comes.
- We must obey the Word of Jesus, not just what you believe about Jesus doctrinally for doctrines do not save or deliver you from Hell, only faith in His Word does. Do you hear?
In my book the 5th Dimension I gave you a proper description of what the Satan of life is so that all who read this book can develop a true understanding as to what the nature of the adversary realm is, not just church-doctrines about it! You be surprised what the Satan truly is, for I was. When I found out that the whole of Satan was but a nothingness keeping us in darkness as long as possible.
- In reality Satan can only exist as a parasite and operate in the darkness of ignorance.. Satan works its evil work in the darkness of human fear giving us a sense of rejection and remember, it can not work in the heart of those who know Jesus and His completed work on the Cross.
By the Holy Spirit they know they are forgiven and washed clean by the Blood of the Lamb. It is wonderful! Don't forget beloved, Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you, even if you make your bed in hell. If per adventure you are still in some form of sin, Jesus will not fail you, not even in your darkest hour. Yes, Satan will haunt us in our ignorance of the Cross for as long as it can. It will continue to do this until we hear the Voice of Jesus in our heart and we wake up as to who we truly are in Him; the offspring of the Living God. In Christ Jesus you are not just a dog sinner on his way to Hell. Now in Him we can we have the Peace that passes all human understanding flooding us.
- The Psychiatrist said to me after I came out of the hypnosis he put me in; Son he said: "I know what your trouble is; "You have a rejection problem, he said, but don't worry son, I have One to".
- His diagnoses as to what he thought was wrong with me could not help me either! He said; “In our humanity we are all in the same boat, so go and buy your self a good stiff drink and make the best of it, I cannot help you any further.”
Unfortunately I took his advice and got myself nice and stoned. In complete frustration and not knowing where to turn, I went deeper into the Pit of Hell. I realized that Psychology or Religion did not help me at all; there must be another way into the Heaven Jesus promised. I had one problem in my attempt to be free from this haunting rejection problem. I took more then one drink in order to try to solve my sense of rejection causing me over a period of 9 years to descend into total oblivion. I experience Hell itself and I died to all normal life. I was so totally deranged and sick unto death but thank God, Jesus never left me alone. Even after I made my bed in Hell, Jesus stayed with me. In His mercy He showed me the way out. Somebody introduced to A. A., which in my case at that time became my only refuge, the last resort so to speak, for all the Christians wanted to cast the devil out of me, but did not succeed.
They tried hard, but the Devil would not shift.
Your see beloved, if you do not know Jesus as the Wonderful Savior He truly is, you have no power to cast out the Devil. When we have come to the end of the road, we must come to Jesus without any plea. Learn to commune with Him in Spirit and in Truth first, before we can help others find deliverance from sin. If we still think that the Devil is a real being that exists as some fallen angel to work against the Will of God, we are wrong. There is nothing of any evil working against the Divine Will of God. Grace is the only influence on the Creation; God only thinks Good thought toward you, thoughts of Peace and Love.
Jer29:11 "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive".
Jesus destroyed the Devil on the Cross! Heb2:14
He killed that false sense of being called the accuser of the Brethren, the Satan, it is our own ego! If you can read and believe the Word rather then some far out concept the Church is telling you, you will be free indeed.
Hebrews 2:12-16: “Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me. Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. For verily he took not on [him the nature of] angels; but he took on [him] the seed of Abraham”. (KJV)
All right, you may say; “I believe this, I believe that the Devil is dead and gone to those who believe what Jesus did, but it takes courage to maintain this belief, for to my human senses the Devil seems to be very real”.
Yes beloved, it is, the devil has done a lot of harm to me and all the symptoms in my body where there to let me know how real Satan was. The torment of my sick mind and body was contrary to the Truth which Jesus was trying to bring to me, but eventually His Love penetrated me.
Anyhow, I put another shrimp on the barbecue and took the plunge.
Let us see what happened to me!
I was invited to a Dutch feast, seeing I am a Dutchman by birth. At this feast there was going to be a preacher who testified as having had the same problems I have, and he also claimed that Jesus made him totally free so my ears pricked up. All I knew about Jesus was in some form of mockery which I heard daily in the Local Pub. I can assure you that the words I heard in the pub did not save me, but only made me more mad. I became very troubled and my family could no longer cope with my violence and drunkenness, so I went back to the shrink to have my head tested some more. Unfortunately the shrink was not home, so I went to the pub and got myself half stung. I sat there in the car wondering what I was supposed to do now. Little did I realize that the Hound of Heaven was still on my case who had arranged this particular night to bring about my Salvation and deliver me from the Man of flesh, for in Adam all died. I was looking in my glove compartment for my smokes, but instead I pulled out a pamphlet which was an invitation to a bible study which was given to me after I departed from that strange Dutch feast. Well God works in mysterious ways!
The date on the Pamphlet was the current date, so I did not have to wait. God knew I was not able to drive the car in my rather half stung condition, so He arranged it in such a way that the meeting was 2 streets further as to where I was standing at exactly the right time 7.30 PM .
I put out my smoke and trotted up to the Church and walked into the meeting place and set myself in one of these pews.
The preacher came on the platform and began to preach on Spiritual Regeneration. After about 10 minutes He stopped suddenly and looked around like a frog in a hailstorm and said: "There is somebody here who is in terrible trouble and needs deliverance"
He said that the Lord showed Him! Well, I do not know who told him this, for I thought that He could smell my breath all the way to the front. I indicated that I was the fellow that was in trouble. He invited me to come to the front and said: "You need Jesus to deliver you from this Alcoholism"
I agreed and received Jesus into My Heart, it was wonderful. This heart of mine began to do strange and wonderful things. Instead of the deep heaviness which has been with me for many years, my heart began to lift and joy began to flood my tormented soul. Suddenly out from the region of my belly a flood of light began to rise up . I lost control of my tongue which began to do things which it has never done. By the way it took me about 2 minutes to get sober.
After the meeting I drove home to tell my wife all about what had happened to me. I banged on the door and my wife opened. I opened my mouth to speak to her and tell her about all the strange things that had happened to me. Instead I began to speak in another tongue which did not stop all night. I was lying on the floor of the lounge room and all night long I past water, I could not sleep and in the morning I was 10 pounds lighter as all the obese fluid had drained out from me, it was a miraculous healing. To cut a long story short, I was healed and delivered from my fears and sense of guilt and rejection. No longer did I have a rejection problem, or a problem with alcohol. I worked as a welder boilermaker, so the next day I went to work. At lunch time we usually went to the local for a drink and a counter lunch. I had to make it known to my work mates that I no longer had the desire to do so and I declined the invitation. Our shop steward who was a bit of a communist began to froth at the mouth when I told the boys that Jesus saved me and what had happened to me the previous night. He got all red in the face and picked up a steel bar and came at me to finish me of..
I don't think he liked the idea of Jesus saving me.
Anyhow, there where a couple of angels to protect me from the sudden death syndrome, it was not my graduation day as yet. A couple of Irish Catholics who also where in the lunchroom at the time stood up and protected me from the attack; "He Is one of us now" they proclaimed, don't you touch him"!
I was saved and able to begin the most exiting life I ever could imagine was possible. My consciousness was purged from the fear of death and the realm of faith and discernment became the healing agency to many who would come and touch the Hem of Jesus as He worked in me as His Mind was now My Mind.
The Old Man Tony the Alkie was dead and the Christ of God was manifest.
Galatians 2:19-21; “For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness [come] by the law, then Christ is dead in vain. (KJV)
The first healing took place when my wife was suffering from sciatica. My wife has a Baptist background so you can understand her reluctance to be healed through the laying on of hands. Especially the gift of tongues was not exactly a favorite subject with the Baptists. The elders of the local Church had already confirmed to my wife that a tongue was of the devil and that the devil had healed me of alcoholism. However, I did not think that the devil was that kind and lovely to heal an Alkie like me, so I dismissed that idea. Finally my wife gave consent for me to pray for her and she was instantly healed and remained healed until now.
Before I was born of the Spirit of God, I also was baptized in my wife's local Baptist Church but alas;
I went down an Alkie and Came up an Alkie.
You see beloved, too many Christians believe that by just signing a card at a Billy Graham crusade that you can become born again, but that is a grave mistake. All these man made doctrines (I am not being critical) have caused more division and family upheaval then the problem of sin itself. Jesus said to Nicodemus that we must be born again of the Spirit, so I rather believe the Word of Jesus, then any other presentation of well meaning preachers who have no idea about the Love of God toward us all.
My son Anthony who had been suffering from bronchial asthma since he was 2 1/2 years old was instantly healed in his sleep as I laid my hands on him. This was the second healing and he to is also still healed. The third outstanding working of the Holy one of the Father was with our friend of long standing who had adopted a son into their family. The adopted boy had a serious kidney disease, and was on strict medication to maintain some form of balance in his kidneys.
Our friends were from Dutch reformed background and had tried over the years to convert me to their religious beliefs, but I could not believe that so much somberness which I saw in their Local Church was the answer to my personal problems. They were also aware of my Alcoholic behavior and something happened to them when they witnessed the transformation that had taken place in my life, they became interested and began to ask questions as to what had happened to me. I told them of the miraculous healing that had taken place. After some persuasion they agreed that I could pray for their adopted son, but no tongues, for they also believed that it was from the devil. After we prayed they asked me; "Shall I discontinue the medication"? “I said definitely no, you must continue with the medication until the doctor would verify that something had happened”.
That night they gave him the regular dose of medication and went to sleep. In the morning the child became very ill and they were no longer sure about the laying on of hands for healing.
May be after all this laying on of hands was from the Devil!
They took the child to the doctor to find out what was the trouble. He looked at the parents in utter disbelief. He said, after he examined the child: “It is no wonder that the Child is having problems I have examined the Kidneys and there is nothing wrong with them. The reason why he is having these convulsions is because the Medication is working against the Normal functioning of the Kidney's”.
The healing of the child's kidneys had made believers out of my friends and they wanted more of what we had to offer. I again told them of the Spirit Baptism, but again they could not accept tongues and refused. However, in the middle of the night Jane( as we will use this Name) woke up and out of her innermost being came the same light which I experienced in my darkest hour and also the same tongues began to well up in her. She put her hands over her mouth, she refused to let go of what she heard inside. Suddenly a golden scroll began to appear before her. She read the scroll and accepted the word of Jesus and was baptized in the Holy Ghost.
THIS WAS WHAT SHE SAW!
John Chapter 15 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vine dresser.” Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. “You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. “If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.” If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. “By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
The Next Major miracle we experienced as a Ministry of Reconciliation, the Healing of Kathy Fitz.
Kathy came to us after she had received the death sentence by the medical profession. Melanoma Cancer was raging throughout her body and she was send home to die. She had tumors as large as cherries in every organ of her body it was the end of the road for her as far as medical help was concerned. It would be only a few weeks, at the most a few months, before she would die according to the specialists. If you are touched by Kathy's testimony of healing you can write for the book she wrote. In her book you can have a good idea as to what she experienced in her dark our now 15 years ago. Kathy stayed at our Healing center Oasis for 3 months, before she was declared totally free from the cancer. It is a moving story of courage. Kathy had a strong belief that it was not God's will for her to die of such horrendous disease and intuitively knew that she had a calling to be a minister of reconciliation. If you are in a similar situation do not give up hope there is a way out, even though by all appearances it seems to be hopeless. If you are suffering, begin the healing process by touching the print you see in front of your eyes and say:
"I now touch the Hem of His Garment and I receive my healing now"!
Write or Fax a letter to me, so that we can stand with you in your hour of trial. In the mouth of two or three witnesses every thing is established, and nothing is impossible to those who believe. I have written down some of the testimonies to encourage you who suffer pain. There are many more who also have experienced healing of all manner of problems as a witness that there is hope for all those that suffer. Please call me by email or phone, do it and believe you will be healed.

We focus on bringing the Gospel of Righteousness without the moral law of demands. Jesus demands nothing from you, but to believe His Word and obey His leading. We have seen many people healed of Cancerous Tumors, Back Problems, Infertility, and Financial Lack. ETC.
I believe that there is now a great revival taking place and many Christians and so called sinners alike a healing reconciliation of the whole man is taking place. In the Body of Christ, where all people, White or Black, Jew or Gentile, Sinner or Saint, can come and be made whole. If you are suffering in your body or your mind or need leading in business or relationships and you feel that something you read in this letter witnesses to you from within, let us know, it is the SPIRIT OF JESUS prompting you to believe His Word and make your step in Faith.
Receive Jesus into your Heart right now. He will tangibly come into your Life to Comfort and Heal you.
Remember, JESUS NEVER MAKES A DEMAND ON YOU TO BE BETTER PERSON. HE DOES NOT EVEN REQUIRES YOU TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN, HE JUST LOVES YOU THE WAY HE KNOWS YOU AND WAITS FOR YOU TO RESPOND!
Hebrews 2:12-15 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me. Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. (KJV)
Love to all who are searching,
