After many miraculous encounters and literal rescues by "unknown" God in his life, he was saved in 1989 and launched straight into full-time minist
ISRAEL, MARCH 2013
In March David held 3 days of meetings with thousands of Russian-speaking Holocaust survivors together with members of the younger generation, all came to hear about their Jewish Messiah and the fulfilment of Jewish prophecy.
David said: 'In the book of Numbers, in your Jewish Scriptures, Balak paid Balaam to curse the children of Israel. But he could not, because God has blessed! Balaam said to Balak, "God is not a man that He should lie, nor the son of man that He should change His mind. Has He said, and shall He not do it? Has He spoken and shall He not make it good? I have received a command to bless, and He has blessed, and I cannot reverse it." - (Numbers 23:19-20).
'Today you are surrounded by dangerous nations, I know the daily rockets and missiles - but God sends me to bless Israel... The God of Israel - your God, my God - is a God who delivers... When your families, your relatives were in the ghettos, in the Holocaust - you cried out to God, and God delivered: the only reason you are here in Israel is because God made the way! God cared for you! Those pioneers, those Zionists who fought for this land and found deliverance - God was with them! God is with your nation! In your crisis now, cry out to Him, He will deliver you! The whole of ths history of Israel shows that every time Israel is in trouble, in despair - God came to deliver you! I love Israel because, when I cried out in my despair, it was a Jew, Yeshua (Jesus), who set me free from prison, who healed me of cancer two times - 40 years ago, throat cancer; 10 years ago, lung cancer. His Name is Yeshua - that means God saves, delivers, heals every sickness, forgives every sin, every curse from the past.'
At the end of the Saturday meeting, Anton, who had experienced a dramatic miracle ten years ago in Perm, Russia, gave his amazing testimony: how he was dying in hospital from gangrene in his leg and hepatitis; how his grandmother insisted David prayed with him; how David visited him in the hospital and told him not to allow the doctors to cut his leg off - although this would mean certain death. Yet, Anton believed God and the healing came. Now he is living in Israel, married with children, and completely healthy! Not a trace of any sickness or disease! At the end of his testimony, Anton turned to all the Jewish people in the auditorium and said, "Yeshua, Jesus, is the Son of the Living God, believe in Him!"
