In late March, Andrew held a well-attended Gospel Truth Seminar near the nation's capital in Washington, DC. Andrew taught a series of messages entitled, A New Covenant with a New Commandment. Holding nothing back as he began to share his message, Andrew declared, "Most Christians do not understand the New Covenant." He said that for many people, the only difference they recognize between the Old and New Covenants is the single blank page in the Bible that separates the two. According to Andrew, this lack of understanding leads to a schizophrenic impression of God and of His true nature, and ultimately leads to the wrong doctrine so evident in the church today.
On Friday night Andrew opened the meeting by re-reading Hebrews 8:13, a verse he had read several times throughout the previous sessions. Drawing on this verse he taught that believers today are not supposed to relate to God the same way as people did under the Old Covenant. "In our religious system today people will basically embrace the things that Moses said, the things David said, the way they prayed, the way they begged God not to leave them, the way they pleaded for cleansing and things. It is totally different under the New Covenant, and yet the average person does not make a distinction."
As Andrew continued to minister the Good News and freedom of the New Covenant, people began to catch a glimpse of the revelation of how awesome God is, and hearts and lives were transformed and prepared to receive from the Lord. With crowd attendance averaging close to 1000 each session, prayer ministers were in high demand. "We were glad to have 30 partners ready to serve," said one prayer team leader.
After one session, a family with three little girls approached the ministry team. Each of the three suffered with physical issues, most prominently scoliosis. Their lives were changed as they received prayer and Jesus healed each one of them. One of the girl's legs visibly grew out, and each girl's twisted spine straightened and came into alignment with the Word of God. At the following session the three girls returned to the minister who had prayed for them and excitedly shared how happy they were now that they did not need to wear their back braces anymore!
During another session, a woman made her way to the front for prayer and her frail appearance caught the attention of several of the prayer ministers. The woman said she came forward because felt like she was dying. She explained that she had been in a car accident five years ago and had been suffering with excruciating pain ever since due to spine and neck injuries. As the ministers prayed the woman fell to the floor under the power of the Holy Spirit. A few moments later, the woman stood to her feet completely healed and pain free.
