Mariah Woodworth-Etter, most referred to as, “Mother Etter,” was born in 1844 and went to our Father’s House in 1914. It is agreed that no one has performed as many miracles in centuries.
Guided by the appearance of the Lord as a child, Etter grew to become one of the greatest evangelists and prophets in modern history. Her ministry was one of endless supernatural manifestations, healing and prophesy that drew crowds as great as 25,000 at one time and millions over the course of her earthly life.
Etter transformed the Church in many States including Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky and Indiana; but, her ministry reached worldwide. Smith Wigglesworth crossed the Atlantic to hear her and received an impartation which transformed his ministry into the miraculous. The same experience is attributed to renown church leaders including John G. Lake and Canada’s own, Aimee Semple McPherson (Ingersoll, Ontario).

Several were prophetesses including Anna, the daughters of Philip, Myriam, Deborah, Huldah, Noadiah and Isaiah’s wife. Unquestionably, woman have been chosen throughout history to speak for the Lord. In the last days, all His warriors are called. Any legalism that silences woman of great faith in some churches–those who have a calling–is simply not in line with the word of God; these churches are known by their fruits.
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
Read about her Ministry and miracles in her service–the reading is fodder for an epic film. Acts is the ultimate road map for ministry; but, reading accounts from the brethren is also in God’s plan. It is reported that many who have read her sermons have experienced miracles and healing. I equate this to Paul’s anointed cloth, carried to reach those afar in need of healing. It is only natural to seek an impartation from those who have a double-anointing like Elisha.
