Ukraine – Sealed for Freedom & Fire

UKRAINE PROPHECY – November 30, 2019

A few days ago, I had a dream and part of it included me being in an airport and heading out to a foreign nation for ministry. As I was walking through the airport headed to my gate, I passed by the doors where incoming flight passengers exit through to leave the airport. For some reason I walked through those doors instead of going to the gate. As soon as the first set of doors shut, I immediately regretted doing so and knew I would have to go through the whole security and checking in process again, afraid that I would run out of time. I ran through it all and ran to the gate. In front of the gate, there was a little gallery set up where I was also teaching prophetic art lessons and had my work on display. On a table was an oversized canvas where I had an unfinished oil painting of a former governmental leader in varying shades of green.

At the end of a second dream that immediately followed, I found myself in a little city center with many roads connecting to it. The shops and colors were vibrant and lively. Suddenly, a little grandmother scampered over to me and in her language, ushered me over to her little shop offering me a drink and bite to eat. I went over to her and she brought me a glass bottle with a bubbly drink of which I struggled getting the lid loose. As I slowly unscrewed it, I sensed the force that was contained in this little bottle and I ran over to the center where I began. I held the bottle away from me, expecting a large explosive mess; and yelled to the friend who was with me, “She’s gonna blow!” Then I came out of the dream and immediately thought, “That’s Little Russia.”


Assuming Little Russia was just another Chinatown or Little Italy, I looked it up. Little Russia is in fact not a little mock town of the original, but an archaic geographical term for Belarus and Ukraine.

Knowing nothing about Ukraine, I began to ask God what He desired to reveal to me and He said:

“I see you and have not forgotten you, Ukraine. I know you better than you know yourself and know who I created you to be.

For though you seemed small and insignificant in the past; I am bringing you up out of isolation and setting you up for promotion. You have fought long and hard for your place, your rightful inheritance; and it will not be taken from you and given to another. In fact, I will cause those who sought to rob you and dethrone you to come and bow before you. Yes, you will receive the honor you deserve and never got.

No longer will the trickster seek to rob you of your place; but will be brought low before Me as I rescue you. Coming is the day when you will see the final deliverance from all who sought to destroy you and lead you away in shackles of submission!

I am stamping My seal of approval on you and you will never again fight for your right. Big brother will no longer loom over you; casting his shadow of intimidation and threat of disqualification.

I say to you, do not cower in fear at what comes; but rise up and stand confidently and boldly before Me that I AM The One Who redeems your past and reinstates you.

Do not dread the legislation that comes your way, but lean into Me and watch as I overthrow every unjust act seeking your demise. Once I set My signet upon a thing, it cannot be revoked, reversed, or removed.”

As the Lord was saying this, I was taken into a vision where I was overlooking the nation of Ukraine. I saw God’s hand pick up His golden signet ring, which has an interchangeable face. He picked up an emblem of a dove with an olive branch in its mouth, and He placed it in the open face of the ring.

Suddenly, an angel came forth and poured red wax over the capital of Kiev and then God stamped His ring into the wax with great force and authority. As He did, a great explosion took place and as He lifted His hand, I saw the seal engraved with the dove. I knew the dove represented Holy Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Then a wave of fire was loosed from the seal that spread out in all directions like ripples in the water, and the entire nation was set ablaze. I could hear the roar and crackling of the blaze as the raging fire lighting up Ukraine’s borders began to spread. I knew that God was marking the nation with Holy Spirit that would usher in the baptism of the fires of Revival; which would begin and spread to the surrounding nations, specifically former Soviet Union-ruled nations. 


After this encounter, I began to research the history of Little Russia and discovered a rich Revival history that took place out of this region. The Gospel is first recorded to have been introduced to the people of the region by the Apostle Andrew after the wave of persecution hit Jerusalem and the apostles and believers were sent out.

In the capital of Kiev in the 900’s, a mass Baptism of Kiev Rus’ under the rule of Vladimir the Great transpired. Though the region followed a pagan idol, Vladimir met with many representatives from other religions desiring to worship only one god. Of the Muslims he found there to be “no joy, only sorrow and a great stench.” He rejected Judaism because of their loss of Jerusalem. Seeing German churches, he “found no beauty, only gloom.” His representatives found that at Hagia Sophia, they “no longer knew whether we were in Heaven or on earth; nor such beauty, and we know not how to tell of it.”

Later Vladimir converted to Christianity and was baptized, and then baptized his 12 sons and governmental leaders. He destroyed the idols he erected years before and then sent an edict to all residents of Kiev, “rich, and poor, and beggars, and slaves”, to come be baptized in the river the next day. He then built a church to commemorate the event, as well as another one right on the hill where the idols once stood. Talk about taking back a mountain! This began a wave across the land of mass baptisms and churches being erected where pagan sites once were.


I sought the Lord for revelation about the dreams I had. I believe that walking through the double doors “past the point of no return” symbolized the nature that Ukraine has lived in for what seemed like eons.

But the Lord is saying, “Where you, Ukraine, thought your time was passed, it’s not over yet! I’m setting you on a fast-track and you already have your tickets in hand! You will not miss out on what I am doing and where I am taking you!”

About the artwork in the dream, Ukraine has always possessed a unique gift from the Lord where the arts are concerned. During Stalin’s evil reign, he sought to squelch the freedom of creativity and expression in the arts and literature of the Ukrainians.

The Lord is bringing a fresh wave and freedom of expression with the arts in this new day, drawing specifically from the spiritual roots of the Ukrainians. Fresh pieces and works will begin to surface and arise out of the creative heart of God that will reflect His nature in a new way and many will become world-renowned overnight. He is using the unexpected and unheard of to display His wonders in a greater fashion.


There are wells of Living Water and Revival in Ukraine that have been suppressed and capped for centuries; though mounting pressure has been continually increasing. The Lord is bringing in the change agents to loose the wells and soon, the fires of freedom and Revival will blow!!!

He is setting His seal upon the heart of Ukraine, Kiev. Out of this place will fresh fires go forth in a ripple effect that will not only set Ukraine free and ablaze once and for all, but also blaze the trail for nations once suppressed under the thumb of the evil one to follow.

Genesis‬ ‭35:1-7, 9‬ ‭(AMP‬‬)
Then God said to Jacob, “Go up to Bethel and live there, and make an altar there to God, who appeared to you [in a distinct manifestation] when you fled [years ago] from Esau your brother.”

Then Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, “Get rid of the [idols and images of] foreign gods that are among you, and ceremonially purify yourselves and change [into fresh] clothes; then let us get up and go up to Bethel, and I will make an altar there to God, who answered me in the day of my distress and has been with me wherever I have gone.”

So they gave Jacob all the [idols and images of the] foreign gods they had and the rings which were in their ears [worn as charms against evil], and Jacob buried them under the oak tree near Shechem.

As they journeyed, there was a great [supernatural] terror [sent from God] on the cities around them, and [for that reason] the Canaanites did not pursue the sons of Jacob.

So Jacob came to Luz (that is, Bethel), which is in the land of Canaan, he and all the people who were with him. There he built an altar [to worship the LORD ], and called the place El-bethel (God of the House of God), because there God had revealed Himself to him when he escaped from his brother.

Then God [in a visible manifestation] appeared to Jacob again when he came out of Paddan-aram, and declared a blessing on him.

Kashmir: Your Scroll is Coming

It was October 11, 2019 and I had already been in Pakistan ministering for a few days. I sat on stage for the second night of a four-day Prayer and Peace Festival expectant of what God was going to do. We had seen miraculous healings, deliverances, and salvations in the days and night before; from blind eyes and deaf ears opened, mute speaking, paralyzed people restored and walking, numerous ailments and cancer healed, and so much more!

I found myself gazing with wonder upon the beautiful Pakistani people gathered from all over the nation, thousands of Muslims and Hindus alike; to hear the Gospel and experience the demonstration of the power of Jesus through signs, wonders, and miracles.

During a divine moment of dwelling in the Presence of God and listening to Charlie preach, I closed my eyes and took in a deep breath of His Spirit. As I did, I immediately went into a trance and no longer could hear anything Charlie was saying, but was completely caught up in what the Lord was showing me.

I saw very plainly through the darkness God’s right hand lifted up and there were three distinctly different colors marked on His hand as if they were painted on His hand. From the middle to the outside of His hand was green; from the middle of His hand to the inside and to the thumb was white; and bordering those colors from the middle of His hand through His fingers was red. I knew instantly by the Spirit that it was the conjoining borders of Pakistan, India, and China; for each color represented one of the distinguishing colors of their flags and they were placed in the same position as they touch on a map. It was as if He lifted His right hand to show me what He has stamped on His hand. He then slammed His hand down and the sound of His hand coming down reverberated throughout time and space with the sound of an explosion, as if He was stamping His seal upon something. I then came out of the trance and back to the reality of 300,000 Pakistani people set before me receiving the Gospel that gives life.

As I began to seek the Lord about what I was shown, I heard His voice saying:

“There is going to be a conjoining agreement released between these three nations. Behold, I am ordaining a new thing completely unheard of. It is a new thing that will cause the entire world to stand in awe.

Out of this place there will be a change agent that will completely change the atmosphere in all three nations. From this place, I will lift My hand of power and bring a unification of three nations.

Where violence and persecution once raged over this region upon the mountains; where competition and possession shrouded the land and loosed the spirit of oppression, will I release the breaker scroll. It will tear down age-old foundations and uproot every evil intention.

Where My people have only known submission, they will soon see a new day when they will live freely in the land I have given them. They will be the ones who possess the land of inheritance and though it make no sense how after all this time that they could be in this place; it will be because I have caused these three nations to find a middle ground and caused them to become united upon a higher purpose.

Where they fought to expel you, now they will unite to reinstate you. A cord of three strands is not easily broken and this divine alliance will bring about a greater purpose of force of fulfillment of My plans for this region.”

As the Lord spoke, I could see and discern the region of Kashmir and knew He was speaking of the decades-long conflict over the Himalayan mountain range. There has been a near 80 year-long conflict over the mountainous region of Kashmir with Pakistan, India, and even China all fighting over possession of the land. It has resulted in numerous wars and the Kashmiri people are suffering under the oppression, being displaced, and violence and death has left its mark.

Isaiah 49:16 (AMP) tells us, “Indeed, I have inscribed [a picture of] you on the palms of My hands; Your city walls [Zion] are continually before Me.” One version says He’s “painted”.

I prophesy to you, Kashmir:
Where you have been at a loss of your place like war-torn wanderers desperate for establishment; so will the Lord do a new thing through you and for you. The impossible made possible. He has not forgotten about you and who you are, for He has painted you upon His palm.

A day is coming when a trumpet will sound in the heavens calling forth the unfurling of the scroll of deliverance and establishment that has already been stamped with His seal and thrusted forth with the power of His right arm. This decree, says the Lord, is an unstoppable force and will link together unsuspecting forces for My name’s sake.

Like the unlikely unification of three kings for a greater purpose is Elisha’s day, so will you see an agreement be made among three nations vying for possession of your high places. They will find a greater and unusual reason for unifying not against you, but for you. It will make no sense in the eyes of the world or the wisdom of man. But I will cause that which looks foolish in the eyes of man to confound the wise; and as I do so, I will make you a sovereign land. You will once again inhabit your Promised Land freely and I will return to you your identity and restore your borders. You will never again be dispossessed; for you will find your lost ones returning to you and I will fulfill My promise to you, says the Lord.

Isaiah 49:17-18 (TPT)
“Your children, your builders, are running back to you as those who ruined and destroyed you are running away. Lift up your head and look all around you. See! All your children, your builders, gather to come back to you. As surely as I live, I make this promise,” says Yahweh. “You will wear them all like jewels, as a radiant bride wears her beautiful jewelry!”

We Are But Vessels for His Glory

This week has been a whirlwind and I find myself unable to keep up in sharing of what has been taking place; but the fruit has not ceased in coming forth in greater proportions. In all things, I find myself continually saying, “expect the unexpected”, as I shared in my previous post.

On Tuesday, the ladies and I went with AnaMaria, our incredible host, to her church to share and minister at a ladies’ meeting. My mother and sister-in-love shared about ministering to Jesus first and cultivating intimacy with Him. I went to the meeting thinking I had nothing to share, but on the way the Lord downloaded what He desired the ladies to know. I shared on how the Lord has called the warring women of Spain to stand, arise, declare the Word of the Lord over their land, and to claim their inheritance. The whole meeting bore a weighty Presence of God and then we were asked to pray over the women.

Sharing a prophetic word and charge to the warring women of Spain. 

As I prayed over the ladies, Jesus began to speak to me about them and give me pictures of what He was declaring them. I gave them the words and the women began to share of how they had been weighted down in anxiety and depression, and had numerous ailments and afflictions. One lady had pain in her back and stomach for 2 and a half years and the doctors had no answers, saying she was making it up. I had a picture of her hands tied and Jesus coming and loosing the bonds. I then prayed for her twice and the pain significantly lessened. For another, I saw Jesus putting His hands on her shoulders and massaging them. She said for 5 months she’s had many worries and severe anxiety and her shoulders have hurt the whole time. I also saw she had weights tied to her ankle. I gave her this word and said she had pain in her leg for 5 months and had trouble walking. I prayed for her and she said she felt heat where my hands were on her leg and shoulders and the pain left her. She felt taller and freer. Many others were healed, encouraged and freed from bondage; it was a fiery time of release all around!

After the ladies meeting we met up with Israel, Abi (Israel’s sister), and her friend, Eva, to share the Gospel with her. I shared the Gospel using the Evangecube; but I didn’t expect that God would have me include my testimony of giving my life to Jesus and being forgiven, healed from all of my diseases, and set free from anger, unforgiveness, fear, unbelief, and bitterness. It was an emotional time and she was deeply moved by my passion for Jesus and in my testimony of what He has done for me. In the end she gave her life to Jesus! She said that she felt a peace come upon her as she made this decision; and she was touched so much that she set up another meeting with a coworker to have us share with him on Thursday as well.

On Wednesday evening, we met up with our pastors for another meeting with a couple whom they were to marry. We got a bit lost in translation and were under the impression that the couple we were meeting with were delving into witchcraft and were not necessarily up with Jesus. We found out later upon meeting Enrique, Amanda, and their children, Christian, and Nicole, that this was not the case. We shared the Gospel with them and they came to the Lord! I discerned they needed prayer for healing and they said the oldest daughter, Louisa, had a cyst under her arm and she needed prayer for healing; as well as Enrique needing healing for asthma. They were touched from the Lord and genuinely wanted God’s hand leading their lives as they go forward. We prayed for them and blessed them, their family, their marriage, and their home.

Brothers and sisters, we are simply vessels to be used for His Glory. He doesn’t need us to accomplish and establish His will on earth, but He chooses to invite us in to partner with Him in His grand plan here on earth. I’ve said it before and I will say again, there is nothing special about us. We are simple people being simply obedient. Being a vessel means that we have emptied ourselves of ourselves and have invited God to come in and fill us with His Spirit until it overflows and drenches those in our midst. With His Spirit living within us, leading us, guiding us, and flowing through us, we cannot fail! We must be a willing vessel for the power of God to be released through us. We can be a vessel but if we are not completely willing and submitted to Him, we will be ineffective and stagnant. We will be like the Dead Sea, who receives the water of life but has no outsource; therefore, it’s waters are distasteful and dead, there is no life within them.

Romans 9:22-28 (TPT)

“And in the same way, although God has every right to unleash His anger and demonstrate His power, yet He is extremely patient with those who deserve wrath—vessels prepared for destruction. And doesn’t He also have the right to release the revelation of the wealth of His glory to His vessels of mercy, whom God prepared beforehand to receive His glory? Even for us, whether we are Jews or non-Jews, we are those He has called to experience His glory. Remember the prophecy God gave in Hosea: “To those who were rejected and not My people, I will say to them: ‘You are mine.’ And to those who were unloved I will say: ‘You are my darling.’” And: “In the place where they were told, ‘You are nobody,’ this will be the very place where they will be renamed ‘Children of the living God.’ ” And the prophet Isaiah cries out to Israel: Though the children of Israel are as many as the sands of the seashore, only a remnant will be saved. For the Lord Yahweh will act and carry out His Word on the earth, and waste no time to accomplish it!”

Have you made yourself a willing vessel for the Lord today? Have you been truly emptied of yourself that Father may fill you with His Spirit and flow through you as a conduit of revival?

The power of God flows freely through a conduit such as this, and that’s how hearts are touched, lives are saved and are transformed. I encourage you to evaluate your life with the Lord today and ask Him if you are a fully willing vessel being used for His Glory; and how you can become freshly submitted to a Him today! This must become our daily submission and partnership with Him, a continual process of refining and growth.

Signs and wonders will follow those who believe, those who are conduits of revival.

Israel: Ekballo!

For the past 39 days, thousands across America and the nations have been in an extended season of a Jesus Fast; praying for a fresh wave of Revival, Reformation, and the Proclamation of the Gospel to the nations. We have seen that we are in a critical 70-year transitional moment in history, as Daniel saw in his day in Daniel 9He set his face to fasting and prayer, in repentance with humility before the Lord; that a shift would take place in the desolate reality of his day, and that the Lord would extend His hand with forgiveness, restoration, and transformation. We know that he was met by the messenger angel, Gabriel, in the middle of praying and was encouraged that from the very moment he began praying, his prayer was heard in Heaven and a response was on its way (Daniel 9:20-22).

Astonishingly, these acts from Daniel harbingered a complete shift in the empires, powers, and principalities plaguing his day. Could it be that a humble act of one simple person being simply obedient, could in fact, change the course of history; not just for their people, but for the nations of the earth? We believe it can and that it will. We also know that where there is unity, He commands a blessing (Psalm 133). If the prayers of one righteous person could do all of those things, then what kind of kingdom-shaking fruit could the unified fasting and prayer of thousands across the world produce?

It is time to seize this kairos moment.

It is imperative that in seizing this moment, that we also pray for the nation of Israel, God’s chosen people. It is no coincidence that tomorrow, day 40 of this fast, is election day in Israel. There is a grand upheaval taking place in the unseen realm that we must acknowledge and not ignore. Make no mistake, if we do not stand with Israel and contend in prayer for His people and His government that has no end to be established in the land; then we will have missed it completely. It has been 70 years since Israel became a nation and the evangelistic outpouring of the Spirit began in 1948. We must pray for His government to be established in Israel and for righteous, God-fearing leaders to be set in place; and that grace and favor would be released.

When Jesus first commissioned His disciples in Matthew 9:36-38 as He gazed upon His people and saw that they were lost, weary, harassed, confused, scattered (as if being flayed, mangled, or skinned alive); and He felt such deep compassion upon them that it drove Him to action. He said, “Pray (plead, ‘urge you to beg Me’) to the Lord of the Harvest to SEND (EKBALLO- to hurl forth with violence, cast out, thrust forth) forth laborers into the Harvest.” As He sent His disciples out, He told them to go to the Israel- God’s lost sheep (Matthew 10:5-8) and not to the Gentiles. Because of their rejection of Him, we now are able to partake in eternity with Him; however, that desire never ceased even though they rejected Him. He will never cease in His pursuit of His Beloved.

Romans 11:11-12, 15 (TPT)
“So, am I saying that Israel stumbled so badly that they will never get back up? Certainly not! Rather, it was because of their stumble that salvation now extends to all the non-Jewish people, in order to make Israel jealous and desire the very things that God has freely given them. So if all the world is being greatly enriched through their failure, and through their fall great spiritual wealth is given to the non-Jewish people, IMAGINE HOW MUCH MORE WILL ISRAEL’S AWAKENING BRING TO US ALL!
“For if their temporary rejection released the reconciling power of grace into the world, what will happen when Israel is reinstated and reconciled to God? It will unleash resurrection power throughout the whole earth!”

IMAGINE HOW MUCH MORE WILL ISRAEL’S AWAKENING BRING TO US ALL!
IT WILL UNLEASH RESURRECTION POWER THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE EARTH!

The global proclamation of the Gospel with signs, wonders, and stadiums filled!

This is what we are after. In prayer for Israel this morning and the elections, the Lord spoke this word:

“Your hour has come, Israel. The hour in which I take that which you have known as your reality and cause a great shaking and sifting. I am uprooting all opposition and enemy invasion. I will cause all that is opposed to Me and My plans and purposes to fall and be cast down. Every demonic force attempting to overthrow My hand in the land will be exposed on a micro level as well as a macro level. All corruption will be exposed and condemned.

Surely, it will not get beyond Me as I step in to set in place those in which I have ordained to take their place. You have been at war for your identity for long enough. I am stepping in with My hand of might and I am taking out of play all that would oppose you, seek to cause you harm, to try and orphan you, and to keep you in your shackles. Yes, I am shattering your shackles! No longer will you remain alone and isolated; but I am causing those who are riding with Me to join you and partner with you. The nations will look upon you and be in awe and wonder as I bring forth liberation you have not seen for a time and a half. They will will look upon you and say, ‘We have not seen such peace in our lifetime!’

For a time I seemed afar off, but now, I am coming close! Behold, I will demonstrate My power in the days ahead and all nations will see My victory! Your land promised you will be returned to you. No longer will foreigners occupy your territory; you will again live in the land given to your ancestors. Yes, you will dwell in your inheritance!

I will again clothe you with victory and righteousness. No longer will you be blindsided by that which would cause you harm; but I will take care of all that would attempt to overtake you. I am your Defender! Set your gaze on Me and align your focus on My Son!”

IMG_1195

I felt very strongly that the Lord desires to fulfill His promise in Isaiah 52:1-12:

“Wake up, wake up, O Zion! Clothe yourself with strength. Put on your beautiful clothes, O holy city of Jerusalem, for unclean and godless people will enter your gates no longer. Rise from the dust, O Jerusalem. Sit in a place of honor. Remove the chains of slavery from your neck, O captive daughter of Zion. For this is what the Lord says: ‘When I sold you into exile, I received no payment. Now I can redeem you without having to pay for you.’
This is what the Sovereign Lord says: ‘Long ago My people chose to live in Egypt. Now they are oppressed by Assyria. What is this?’ asks the Lord. ‘Why are My people enslaved again? Those who rule them shout in exultation. My name is blasphemed all day long. But I will reveal My name to My people, and they will come to know its power. Then at last they will recognize that I am the one who speaks to them.’
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger who brings good news, the good news of peace and salvation, the news that the God of Israel reigns!
The watchmen shout and sing with joy, for before their very eyes they see the Lord returning to Jerusalem.
Let the ruins of Jerusalem break into joyful song, for the Lord has comforted His people. He has redeemed Jerusalem.
The Lord has demonstrated His holy power before the eyes of all the nations.
All the ends of the earth will see the victory of our God.
Get out! Get out and leave your captivity, where everything you touch is unclean. Get out of there and purify yourselves, you who carry home the sacred objects of the Lord. You will not leave in a hurry, running for your lives. For the Lord will go ahead of you; yes, the God of Israel will protect you from behind.”

Join us in praying:
Jesus, once again we know You are looking to Your own people harassed and helpless like sheep without a shepherd. And we know Your heart is broken because there are few laborers. So we take up Your groan and Your prayer. We seek to align with Your broken heart. We beg You to do what You have been longing to do since You first commanded Your disciples to pray this prayer, “Hurl forth laborers to the lost sheep of the house of Israel!” We say as we pray, “Ekballo Your laborers, and here we are, send us!” May we be those who grant the desire of Your heart to set the earth ablaze for the Glory of the Lord as You arrive to do the same!

Wonderful Works of God

Again, it seems as if we have not updated in a while, but God is doing amazing things.  I just want to give testimony to something that happened last week.  One of our friends here made us some dinner and we sat to talk with her and another guy on staff about how we have seen the Lord work.  Talk ranged from the fallacy of Calvinism to the amazing power of the Lord working through healing, both physical and spiritual.  After talking for about an hour, one of the guys, Ben, asked for prayer.  It was almost a “I’ll take some of that” moment.  We began by praying for his kidneys.  Apparently, he was born with one kidney a lot larger than the other. Along with this, he was never able to sleep on his back because of the constant pain from his kidneys.  As we were praying for this, Katie got a word to check his legs, and one was shorter than the other.  So, she prayed and his leg grew to be the same length as the other.  By the time we were done praying, his kidney pain was gone, and he has slept on his back since with no pain.  We also prayed for his eyes to be healed so he would not have to wear glasses and scoliosis.  In the other areas, he was instantly healed, but not his eyes.

While we were praying for Ben, another guy on staff named Richard came in and began praying with us.  After we finished with Ben, he asked for prayer for his back and neck. He had trouble with them for a long time.  As we prayed, my wife felt led to check his legs as well, and one leg was shorter before she prayed.  We prayed several times and each time, Richard felt something happen, (muscles loosen, stiffness gone…).  When we were done praying, he was not fully healed, but it felt better than it had in a while.

I do not know why both guys were not completely and instantaneously healed. I do not know why God had us do abnormal things like standing on a chair and picking Richard up and holding him in the air.  But, I know that we were obedient to pray and do what He called us to do.  These two guys had enough faith to ask for prayer, and they saw a measure of healing.

After we were done praying for these two, we sat around talking some more.  Another girl came in and mentioned that she was having trouble with her neck and Sonya, the girl who made us dinner and the one we were talking with before the healing broke out was so filled with excitement to pray for her.  We did not see anything happen then, but it was great to see how God reawakened the desire to pray for people because of what she had seen. Interestingly, two evenings later, we had a gathering of young adults here and one of the young men had a word to pray for someone with neck pain. It was the same girl that got prayer. Again, I do not know why she was not healed the first time, but God cared about her enough to reveal prophetically to someone to pray for her. In the end, I noticed something that was key to this whole situation.

These things happened because we began to speak and declare who God was.  We were speaking about principles of healing, and the things that we saw God do on our trip and that led to Ben asking for prayer.  We acted on it and saw Ben healed and this led to Richard’s healing.  Before the young man gave this word, we had been sitting and talking about how good God was and I shared with Him the testimony of two nights earlier.

We are called to be Bold Witnesses for Christ!

We are called to be Bold Witnesses for Christ!

As we speak out the wonderful works of the Lord, it strengthens the faith in people and causes things to happen.  God has called us to be witnesses of what we have seen and know to be true!  The more we share this with the people around us, the more He is able to come and build the faith it takes for miracles to take place.

May our prayer be like the Apostles in Acts 4:29-31 (“Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your Word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.”  And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the Word of God with boldness.)

No matter what other may think or how they may feel about you, you are a witness and are called to speak of what you have seen and know to be true!  Today, begin speaking boldly about the wonderful works of God and be obedient in whatever He calls you to say or do and watch Him do greater things still!!!

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!
