DERBY — The Rev. Mary Ellen Gordon spoke to God 39 years ago and was born again.
“He spoke that day, ‘Write this book simplistically,’ he said. ‘Let the truth be told. Shout it from the rooftops,’” she said. She did.
Under Tate Publishing and Enterprises, her book “Believe and Receive Your Miracle, Today” is now available online and in bookstores everywhere.
Born and raised in Dunkirk, she moved to Derby 12 years ago.
She explained that she and her congregation at the Waves of Glory Miracle Ministries, which she founded, are able to illicit miracles. The stated goal of her book is to help people with various problems, whether those be emotional or physical.
“It’s our desire to bring healing to those in need, wherever we go,” Gordan said, and to spread “what the word of God says about healing and suffering.”
She began writing the manuscript at the end of February, last year. After contacting a number of publishers, she said it took from August until the end of April before seeing the final product in print. Tate Publishing and Enterprises, a Christian company, took her novel and released it to the masses on July 8.
The book is written “simplistically, how we receive a miracle and how to be of deliverance, as well. Whether it’s emotional or physical healing,” she said, of its content. “This is the goal of our ministry, to do that.”
She has been ordained a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Full Gospel Assemblies International, located in Coatsville, Pa.
The stated vision of the ministry is, “I will raise up a ‘house of healing prayer’ where I will minister healing and deliverance to my people. Many will walk in, with all manner of sickness and disease of body, soul and spirit and leave completely well.”
Within the book, she writes about how acting upon testimonies and revelations within that religion will bring miracles “that they need and to help them learn how to live life in the supernatural, where miracles happen every day.”
When asked if she has been witness to miracles, Gordon said she has seen plenty.
“Since I received the revelation of healing, I used what I have learned ... to pray and declare my miracles, my healing,” she said.
Gordon received her own “miracle” a couple of years ago, when she had arthritic pain in her left knee which progressively spread to the rest of her body.
“I believe we can lock into divine health,” she said. Gordon began to pray and “resisting the enemy,” who she said is “satan.”
“I began to take authority over the symptoms I was feeling,” and eventually was “completely healed.” Now, when she has symptoms, she said she continues to follow this pattern to “walk into diving health.”
Another miracle she claimed to witness was a woman who attended one of the seminars of the ministry with ringing in her ears. After the group prayed for her, she was “healed that afternoon.”
She said miracles may also come to those who need inner healing and if they pray with her, they will be “miraculously set free to live an abundant life, free from torment.”
Gordon was raised Catholic until she was “born again.” After immersing herself in the Bible, she began reading “the scriptures that I needed to be born again. Jesus said that we need to be born again.
“I came to understand. I knew about Jesus and I believed in the cross and so on and so forth, but I had never received him, the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Nearly 40 years ago, on June 27, she had a supernatural experience and said that her life “has been amazing, ever since.”
In regard to her relationship with Jesus, she said, “I loved him but I had never really made it personal that he died for me.”
