LITERALLY WAS PERSISTENT PRAYER
KEPT HIM FROM DYING"
By: Johnathan Bond
Jesus Did It!
Chattanooga, TN gives us the husband and wife team of Johnathan and Ginger Bond. They began singing as Young Harmony in 1993. Johnathan and Ginger both switch off singing lead, tenor and alto.
Evangelist Johnathan Bond has a testimony that is guaranteed to keep a crowd's attention. On September 24, 1991, while driving on rain slick roads, an 18-wheeler pulled into his lane on a four lane road and forced him into oncoming traffic where his car was hit so hard by two different vehicles that his seat belt was ripped in half. "The next thing I remember was lying on a wet road and people were standing over me trying to find a pulse." After a few minutes of CPR, the paramedics said, "We can't do anything for him. He's dead." Remembering there is a Heaven and Hell, Johnathan pleaded, "Lord, if You will save me and let me live, I'll live for You."
When his mother arrived at the emergency room and asked about her son, the doctor put his arm around her shoulder and assured her that the ER team had done all they could but they "had lost him." The doctor, who was a Christian, prayed with Mrs. Bond. While they were praying, a woman who was preparing Johnathan's body for the funeral home ran up to the doctor and exclaimed, "He's not dead!"
After further examination, the doctor told Mrs. Bond, "Although God has answered our prayers, Johnathan would be better off dead." Johnathan's injuries were extensive and massive. He had a brain aneurysm from a fractured skull. His head was swollen past his shoulders. His right eye was popped out and only being held with two out of 50 ligaments. His face was cut and his facial bones under his were were broken. Two ribs were broken, his right arm and shoulder were broken, his back was broken in nine places and he was paralyzed from the waist down. Finally, he had also lost most of his blood!
Three days after the accident, his heart stopped and the doctors were unable to restart it, so it was back to the waiting room and the sad news, "We lost him again." Again the doctor and mother started praying. A non-Christian nurse even joined in.
As they prayed, he came to for the second time! Soon, he walked out of the hospital and finished recovering at his mother's house. Is that a miracle testimony, or what?
During the week, Johnathan is the manager of a radio promotion company called HIS Music Group. Ginger is a secretary/sales assistant at a local rug manufacturer. Although they come from different denominational backgrounds, the couple attends the non-denominational Faith Church when at home.
Although husband and wife are both accomplished musicians on several instruments, they sing with soundtracks in concert to achieve a more consistent sound. As for their favorite artists, they claim The Freemans and all the individual members of The Freemans as influences as well. Darrell Freeman is their producer. In an interesting side note, Johnathan wrote a song that was recorded by Mariah Carey and Boys To Men on their duet album. Young Harmony will minister anywhere they are invited, paid or unpaid. And, they will travel any distance to sing.
When asked about their greatest blessing in their new ministry, Johnathan said, "We have the opportunity to reach out to hungry, lost and dying people from all different backgrounds of life. To know that we have made a difference, through Christ, in someone's life is worth all of our time and efforts."
Their most exciting adventure happened when they were invited to sing at a funeral of a lady from Lexington, KY, whom they didn't even know! They sang one song, "Consolation On Your Knees," which was written from Johnathan's car accident. During the song, 72 people came to the altar and gave their hearts to God! According to Bond, "We're going to release the song in December 1996. Listen for it."
Young Harmony wants everyone to know they love the Lord and have been chosen to go out into the world and reach people through their singing ministry. They are available to appear at your church.

You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you ... please don't make such a tragic mistake.
