Circumnavigating the Sphere (Recap) – Video Update #11

The time has come to unveil the recap video of our entire 9 month-long faith journey with the Lord this first year of our marriage!  One call and one desire to be simply obedient sent us out to share the Love of God with the world.  From speaking in churches to prayer groups, to ministering to lepers, homeless and party-goers, to praying for numerous people and seeing legs grow out, and miraculous healings; God has done so many incredible things that we couldn’t possibly include them all in one video.

So, if you would like to know more details about our time spent in each country, check out our blogs found in the categories icon on the right column.  Pray about continuing to partner with us.  This information can also be found at the right side of this page.

May the Blessing of the Lord Be Upon You,

Jeremiah (Man on Fire) and Katie (Pure Fire of Yahweh) Gibson

Stand Fast in Freedom

What a year 2013 was!!! In short it was (Fire by Night and new friends, the Proposal, long months of waiting, Encounter God’s Presence youth camp, confirmation of our calling, marriage, honeymoon in Mexico, beginning of Gibson’s Go Global, flying to NYC on Sept 11, Circuit Riders in Norway, YWAM and Fire Starters in Scotland, Christmas and New Year in Newcastle) not that short. I know for many of us, this was a busy year and we should be able to look back and see how we have changed. If there has been no change between this year and last year, it is seriously time to examine if we are walking in God’s will. I am not talking about a physical location, although in our case it obviously was. I am talking about how you have changed in your relationship with The Lord. I encourage you to review your year with Holy Spirit and see what you find out.

This morning, God has given me an encouragement that I want to pass on to you:
Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.
I can see as I look back over my life, even in the last year, how much that God has brought me into greater and greater freedom. He has strengthened us and empowered us to walk in this new freedom. Even when we are tempted to fall back into old things, we have the strength to stand fast!!! We must stand in the freedom that Christ has bought with so great a price and not go back to having bent and broken backs under the weight and oppression of sin that the enemy deceives us into thinking is better somehow. Do not be entangled again, but walk in the glorious freedom that has been given to us!!!

What kind of freedom is this? Unrestrained selfish freedom? Of course not!!! We know that is not freedom but only bondage to ourselves. A few verses later, we see the freedom that is called for:
Galatians 5:13 For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
This is not a selfish fleshly freedom, but a freedom in Holy Spirit that encourages us to love others in greater and greater ways. We like to explain the freedom of The Lord as we can say, do, watch, listen to whatever we want because we are free in Christ. Through this verse, we see that our freedom is not to be one that satisfies our flesh, but we are spiritually free to love and serve others with our actions. It is such a tragedy in my mind when Christians talk down the standards of other Christians or try to get them to compromise their convictions. There was one instance I know of that everyone was watching a movie with some coarse language. They knew that there was a girl who did not watch or listen to anything with language as much as she could control. Knowing this, the girls apologized to her, but were unwilling to turn off the movie. This was neither loving or serving this girl or the standards Holy Spirit had set up for her. Was this godly freedom? I think not!!! This was the selfish freedom that leads into bondage but no one saw the deception of the enemy.

I am so glad for those who call us to higher standards with their freedom of loving and serving. One quick story, while in YWAM my leader Sage was constantly challenging me in a healthy way. The week before we went to Outreach in Cambodia, we had a team fast. Getting through that was okay, but then he tells me that he is going to do a Daniel fast for the first 40 days of the trip. My thought is “Good luck pal!!!” Then, thinking of all that we wanted God to accomplish and why we were really there, I decided that I would join him. He did not pressure me or even ask me to join him. I was just encouraged to walk with Him in freedom as we loved and served each other. You know I look back now and do not regret one moment of that fast. Yes, it was extremely hard, but I believe that God is worth it!!!

I encourage you as this New Year begins 2014, stand fast in the freedom God has given you and walk in it in such a way that the people around you are affected by the freedom, love, and service you have for them. I pray that those around you who are the closest and those who barely know you will be called to the deeper and greater things of The Lord because of the consecrated life of freedom you are walking in!!!

Gods Not Dead!!! He is ROARING like a LION!!!

We have been in New York City for about a week now and several things are becoming apparent.  First, it is much harder to blog than before, maybe because I am the one responsible to God for making sure we are being diligent in the ministry He has for us.  Second, I am responsible for my wife now when before it was just me.  However, I will continue to update you as often as I can about the happenings here.

First, I want to thank everyone who has been a part of praying for us and partnering with us in this way.  NYC is a good training ground for us before we head out into other countries, and it is amazing to see the level of demonic activity that is surrounding us.  Whether it is because we are on the scene or it is always like this, I do not know, but it is very evident that at least two of these instances were intended to cause us to fear.  We are not fearing, just pressing forward.

Also, things are not looking as I originally thought here, but we are still doing ministry.  Not the crazy awesomeness that I thought, but it is happening.  Please continue to pray that God would open the doors and that we would come to know more about our specific purpose here beyond ministering life and encouragement to my friend Zach.

I wanted to share with you two things that God spoke to me about NYC.  As the plane was landing last week, I began to pray for NYC and ask the Lord to reveal what was going on here.  He spoke to me that He was birthing Fire in NYC.  THis became very evident this week in many ways.  Bethel, JHOP, Hillsong, NAMB and many more amazing ministries have set their sights on bringing the gospel here.  Each of these are already setup and ministering in various ways.

The second thing was one morning, I woke up singing, “My God’s not Dead, He is surely alive. He’s living on the inside roaring like a lion!”  Many people may look at cities like NY and think that it is a godless depraved city.  However, God is not dead here!!!  He is roaring like a lion and waking up His people.  He is calling His children to rise up and take back this Gateway city.  When His people control the gateway cities to the nations, they are the ones letting in the glory of the Lord and keeping out the attack of the enemy.

I want to encourage you in your life that there may be situations, people, places where you feel that are godless and so far removed from God and are without Him.  He is not dead in that person, situation, or circumstance!!!  He is inside and roaring like a lion His truth and love.  Perhaps you are the one He wants to use to bring His truth and love to a situation!  Ask Holy Spirit if there is some way that He can use you to roar our His truth to the people, situations, and circumstances around you.  I bless you with this “My God is Not dead!  He is surely alive in You! He is living on the inside of You!  He is roaring like a Lion in and through You!!!  Let it out and roar the way You were designed to roar as a son or daughter of the Lion of Judah!!!
