If someone asks you to pray for them, what is your first reaction?
Is it something like, “O no, what do I say? How do I pray? What if I don’t know what to say?” Etc., etc., etc.
Instead, why not just agree with them? That is what the word tells us to do.
Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. Matthew 18:18-20 Continue reading If Two Of You Shall Agree→
After ministering music to the folks at the Dover Mission, one of the workers came to get me, saying that one of the guys needed prayer for healing for pain in his back and hips.
No problem, I thought, it is always a wonderful opportunity to stretch forth God’s hand for healing and that signs and wonders will occur in the name of His holy Son Jesus (Acts 4:30).
I followed her and she introduced me to Dennis. I asked him what I could pray for and he told me that he had pain in his back and in both of his hips. “Okay. Let’s pray.” I said as I placed my hand on his back, “Father I thank You for Dennis and Jesus, I thank You that You love him and that You are going to prove to him right now how much You love him by setting him free of this condition.” Continue reading Back And Hip Pain Instantly Healed→
Biblical Christians believe that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord as Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 5:8. Therefor when we die in Christ, having been born again, confessed and repented of our sins, the next face we will see is that of Jesus, our Lord and our Savior.
The most basic tenet of the Christian faith is that Jesus paid the price for our sins by the shedding of His perfect, sinless blood on the cross as the Son of God, hereby being the sacrificial lamb that takes away the sins of the world. This is what John the Baptist by the Holy Spirit confirmed when he saw Jesus coming to him.
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. John 1:29
We were at the Goodwill Rescue Mission in Newark and had just concluded our ministry session. Many souls came to the Lord that night and we had a plentiful harvest.
I was cleaning up my music gear and started heading to the side door exit when I noticed a man walking noticeably crooked heading towards the backdoor of the room. He was literally leaning to the right as he walked.
“Hey, that’s not right!” I thought to myself. It reminded me of that part in the Lord’s prayer where Jesus says, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Nobody in heaven is walking crooked like that! So why should anybody on earth be walking this way while there are believers around? Continue reading Scoliosis Instantly Healed→
And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up?… 1 Samuel 28:15
After Saul had been rejected by God for his unfaithfulness and rebellion, God withdrew His Spirit from Saul. The guidance he had been receiving from Samuel speaking to him by the word of Yehovah, was also gone because Samuel had died. Saul was so distressed about the oncoming battle with the Philistines the next day, that in desperation he sought a witch to bring up the spirit of Samuel to tell him what would happen and what he should do.
Many people believe that this is what happened and that God allowed the witch to bring up the sleeping spirit of Samuel to bring a word to Saul and prophecy to him what would happen.
The greatest event that will occur in the believer’s lifetime is either a) we will die and immediately be with the Lord or, b) the Lord will come for us as His church to take us home.
The word tells us that before Jesus’ triumphant return at His second coming to rule over all the world, He will first come to gather His church in the air to take us home.
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:17
Notice that He does not touch down on the earth as He will do at His second coming when he will stand on Mount Moriah. At that time “every eye will see Him” (Revelation 1:7). At this time only believers will see Him because He is coming for us only. Also notice that it says that we will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet Him in the air. Further notice that once we meet Him in the air, we will be with Him forever.
We were at the flea market with Anand, one of our team members, and came across a lady in a wheelchair.
Anand offered to pray for her and she accepted. She had pain in her knees. Anand prayed several times for this lady but the demon was stubborn and would not release her from the pain in her legs. But it had to go. It had not choice! Continue reading All Pain Knocked Out!→
It was a rainy overcast Saturday morning. All night it had rained, even with lightning and thunderstorms early in the morning. But we had scheduled an outing to the Meadowlands Flea Market and I was determined to go.
On the way it started pouring buckets. I commanded the rain to stop by the time I got there. It was relentless and actually started coming down even heavier. I looked up and said “That’s okay. I’ll give you some more time to do what you want as long as you stop by the time I get there.”
As I drove onto the parking lot of the flea market, the rain had died down to a drizzle. Thank you, Lord! Well, I was here but not many people were. Even the vendors were only a handful compared to how many there usually are. Well, at least I’m here, I thought to myself, Lord, the rest is up to you. Continue reading Instantly Healed, Saved and Baptized→
From of old, people have always wondered what the spiritual world looks like.
We get an idea of this when we read the bible especially Isaiah, Ezekiel and Revelations. Heaven is described in colorful, majestic and glorious terms. Hell is also described as a fiery place with torment to its inhabitants. Lucifer is described as a beautiful angel of light. Demons are not really described at all, neither their origin nor their definition. However, their character and nature is described to us by Jesus.
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.Matthew 12:43-45
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. 25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. 26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.Luke 11:24-26
The word demon and devil is used interchangeably in the bible and describes the same thing which are basically unclean spirits.
Today I would like to share with you an excellent book from the ministry of Andy Hayner. Andy has his own ministry called Full Speed Impact Ministries and he is also a fellow Life Team Servant with John G. Lake Ministries.
Contrary to popular belief, Andy proves from personal experience that God does not cause birth defects. Rather, He is the healer of them. In his book God Heals Birth Defects, co-authored with Margaret Weishuhn, you will read first hand testimonies written by parents from around the world who are seeing God heal their children from diagnoses such as cerebral palsy, autism, down syndrome and other birth defects.
Finally, here is a book that has been a great source of comfort and answers to parents of children who are suffering with these conditions. This book explains in full detail how to correct their child’s condition, heal them and miraculously transform their lives. If you are looking to minister to children with these conditions, then this book will empower you to minister healing to those afflicted with birth defects. As Andy says: “We want to give parents and grandparents the book that we wish someone would have given to us the moment our child was born diagnosed with a birth defect.” Continue reading God Heals Birth Defects→
What many pro-evolution advocates call evolution is really only what is called “adaption” or “adaptation”.
Adaptation refers to the growth process of a natural being to adapt to its environment. Even Wikipedia defines it as follows: “Adaptation is the evolutionary process whereby an organism becomes better able to live in its habitat or habitats.”
Animals, as well as, human beings may show physical changes to better adapt to their environments. This is natural adaptation of the species within the species and not evolution from one species to another. Continue reading Nature Itself Disproves Evolution→
This was on the worldwide Life Team Skype chat: (roughly translated from Russian)
[12/29/2015 11:37:18 AM] Tatyana Matyash:
A young man serving in the army, was constantly humiliated because he believed in God.
One day the Captain wanted to humiliate this soldier before the entire army. He called the soldier and said “Soldier, come here to pick up your keys and go to the car park. There is a Jeep. Sit behind the wheel and drive it to the Commandant’s Office and park my car there.”
My wife and I were invited to come watch the fireworks over the lake at our friends’ house for the fourth of July. It turned out to be a fellowship of believers of a local church we attend.
We came to find out that unfortunately the fireworks were canceled due to the weather conditions. Thunder and lightning storms were in the forecast and sure enough, as we sat on the porch enjoying the vista of the lake, it started pouring and we all quickly retreated indoors.
My wife was chatting up a storm inside with some of the women and I just happened to be standing by two other ladies I had never met before, Gayle and Elizabeth. We started talking about dogs and cats and showing each other pictures of our pets. Then we switched to discussing different religions when Gayle asked if we could sit down because her back was hurting her. I asked her where it hurt and she said “Right here.” while she took my hand and pressed it right onto the spot after I had offered to pray for her. Continue reading Spiritual Fireworks→
Anand, one of our team members, called me on a Monday and asked me if he could bring over his neighbor and parents for healing. He explained that they were Jains who practice Jainism, a religion that to us appears similar to Hinduism but yet is very different and quite popular in India. I told him that would be fine and he brought them over the next day.
They were extremely nice and polite people and we had a wonderful time in conversation. However, after talking a bit, I noticed that the mother was restless and in discomfort. So I suggested we pray for her and relieve her of her pain first, then we could continue our discussion. They agreed and I asked her what her condition was. Continue reading Jesus Heals Jains→
James came to one of our meetings and was in need of prayer for his tooth and infection of the surrounding gum in his mouth, his left knee from a previous arthroscopy, joint issues, right shoulder nerve damage from old football injury, lower back and both hips from scoliosis, arthritis from a diving accident injury, and soreness and tenderness in his back. Continue reading A New Person→
We have all done things in our zealousness that were, what we thought, was right at the time. Only to find out that it was our own zealous desire from our heart and not necessarily God’s desire or His perfect will for us. But we have a loving Father who is gracious, patient and forgiving and oft well pleased and delighted that we would be so zealous for Him.
I needed to pick up just a few things at the grocery store. When I came out of one of the aisles, I bumped into a man who was riding in a motorized shopping cart. I always look to see if there’s a walking cane in the basket and sure enough, there was.
Edna is a lovely southern lady who I met at the local church we attend. She was walking with a cane and naturally I offered to pray for her. When we prayed, the pain in her back left her and she was instantly healed. She gave me a big hug and a kiss and thanked me and praised Jesus.
I saw her again a few weeks later again with her cane and asked her why she was still using the cane. She said that she had pain in her back again and needed her cane to be able to walk. I offered to pray for her again and she was healed once more.
Then I did not see her use her cane for a while and she said that she was fine and had not had any more pain.
Well, Charles was so thrilled with being healed that he brought three of his neighbors with him the next week. They said that Charles was dancing in front of them to show them that he had been healed and that he had not been able to do that before.
The first woman I prayed for received a new baptism in the Holy Ghost and received the gift of speaking in tongues.
Charlie was brought to our house meeting as a guest. He was very pleasant and inquisitive with questions like “Are you saying that we have no need for doctors?” and “Well, what about Paul’s thorn in the flesh?” and “Are you saying that all sickness comes from demons?”. No arguments, just healthy curiosity about these sacred cows he had been raised with.
We patiently answered all his questions and explained that like sacred cows, these were all doctrines of men that he had learned as the commandments of men. When it came time for prayer, he was noticeably silent. Then one of our regulars, no doubt prompted by the Holy Spirit as well as his continual holding and rubbing his knees, asked him “Do you need prayer for your knees?” Continue reading Complete Overhaul→
On the 14th of May, Fort Dix Air Force Base in New Jersey held its annual air show called Power in the Pines. The “Pines” referring to the New Jersey Pine Barrens that surround the area. The “Power” obviously referring to the air power of the many fighter jets and aerial combat equipment on display that day.
Well, with an expected crowd of over 100,000 people, we decided to bring some real power to the pines to overcome the prince of the power of the air and set the captives free. So we brought our team and about 200 Gospels of John to handout.
We quickly noticed that the attraction was also the distraction. Many people we approached who were in obvious need of healing, quickly dismissed our offer because ”I’m heading to the air show.” One woman pushing her husband in a wheelchair actually yelled at us “Leave us alone!” I knew it wasn’t the woman who was yelling and he wasn’t yelling at us but at Jesus. Continue reading Show Of Power→
Andrew, a brand new Team Member, whom I had never met before but only over the phone, met us for one of our outreach outings at Willowbrook Mall. He told us that he had never seen an actual healing before and that he had prayed for people but had never seen an instant healing. As we walked around the mall he witnessed several instant healings take place by the other team members.
When it came time to go, the very last person I approached was a small Indian man who sat by the fountain in the middle of the mall while holding on to his quad cane. He accepted my offer for prayer and told me it was his knee that was hurting. You could see that the knee was bent outward to the side and affected his whole leg being crooked. Continue reading Activating A Brand New Team Member→
After ministering music to the men at the Goodwill Rescue Mission and after packing up my stuff, before leaving, I decided to reach out to the guys directly and just sit down and talk with them.
One of them was a young man named Saleem which means peace similar to Shalom as in Sar Shalom or Prince of Peace. I asked him if he believed in Jesus and I could tell he hesitated before he said yes, he did. I said “Wait a minute. You just hesitated before you said that. Do you really believe in Jesus?” “Well sometimes I do.” He kind of avoided the question so I asked him “Hey, can I show you something?” “Sure.” he replied.
Wally comes regularly to the Dover Outreach Mission. One Thursday, the day we usually minister there, we were wondering where he was.
His friends told us that he had been taken up in the hospital with an infection in his leg and that they were going to amputate it. When Wally questioned the doctors, they said it was not maybe, but that they were definitely going to cut his leg off, right below the knee. Continue reading Jesus Saves Man’s Leg From Amputation→
We had scheduled an outreach to the flea market for the team on Saturday, September 24th, at the Meadowlands in Secaucus, NJ, when one of the team members brought another outreach event to my attention that was also happening the same day in Paterson, NJ. It was scheduled by several churches and community outreach organizations and was sure to draw a crowd.
Well that was cool. I just healed the pain in my foot instantly. Here’s what happened.
We were out apple picking with the family and before we got to the orchard, we stopped into a farm store just to look around and see what they had to offer.
As I was moseying along looking at the fresh baked apple pies, homemade kettle corn and scented wax candles, I noticed a sudden sharp pain in my right foot as if I had misstepped. You know, one of those annoying foot pains that comes out of nowhere and latches on to you for days, if not weeks. Continue reading Walk In Instant Healing→
As a son of God, you have a lot of privileges. But they come with responsibilities.
For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. Luke 12:48b
You have been given the much. Now much is required of you. Whining is no longer a luxury you can permit yourself.
For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. Romans 8:19
You are expected to manifest as a son of God. What does this mean? It means to show the signs of being a son of God, to display His character, to act and be just like Him. Even though Jesus was the Son of God, Jesus as the son of man was the perfect example of manifesting as a Son of God, so much so, that He was the express image of the Father. He even said, “If you have seen me, you have seen the Father. ”
I have infused it with the power of the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus for your healing. The second you touch it, all diseases will depart from you and evil spirits will go out of you. You will be healed.
Just like the woman with the issue of blood, she had faith that as soon as she would but touch the hem of Jesus’ garment, she would be made whole. As she believed, she touched it and was instantly healed. Jesus even commended her for her act and told her that her faith had made her whole, not Him, nor His faith, nor His prayers because He never even prayed for her. It was all accomplished by her acting on her faith alone. Continue reading Red Dot Healing→
“Somebody changed the Ten Commandments? Impossible!”
This might be your first reaction if you did not know this yet. But, yes, someone, or I should say, some well known, world renowned, religious institution actually dared to change the Ten Commandments. I won’t keep you in suspense. It was the Roman Catholic church. Continue reading Who Changed The Ten Commandments?→
