We were at the flea market with our team and bumped into Fermin.
He was walking very slowly with a cane. He was Spanish speaking but also spoke pretty good English. When we asked him what the condition was he said he was in severe back and neck pain. He could not even turn his head.
Margaret, one of our team members, had come for the first time to our outreach event. She had several health issues herself which we prayed for and she was set free of them all. She even received a vision correction to where she could suddenly read the signs posted in the office trailer window from a distance. As a result, Margaret said she was ready to be activated (the term we use to have disciples pray for other people and see them get instantly healed). Continue reading Moving Mountains
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18-19 (fulfilling Isaiah 61:1-2a)
Together with Jesus, and in His name, I declare unto you:
…This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. Luke 4:21
Now before any Pharisees out there want to throw me off a cliff, let me explain.
Just as the Father had anointed Jesus to do all of these things, so has He today anointed you and me, as believers and disciples of Jesus Christ, and baptized in the Holy Spirit, to do the same. Let me prove it to you from scripture. Continue reading This Day Is This Scripture Fulfilled In Your Ears
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!
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
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
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.
However, this past Sunday, I saw her again at church and again with that silly cane. Continue reading Physician, Heal Thyself!
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.
Continue reading Saleem Meets Sar Shalom
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.
Great, I though, we can go to the flea market in the morning and hit this event in the afternoon. Continue reading Super Outreach Saturday
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. ”
This is not just a positive pep talk. It is a way of life. You are much more than meets the eye. Continue reading Be A Thermostat
Nowhere in the bible does it say to go out and make converts. It does however tell us to go out and make disciples.
What’s the difference? A whole world of difference!
A convert in today’s definition of the modern-day church, is an individual who repeats a prayer to “accepts” Jesus into their heart. One of the most popular sayings in today’s church culture is “Salvation is only a prayer away.” Once this ritual has been performed, then the whole church will rally around that individual and tell them over and over again that they are saved by grace. This too, is what they learned and “monkey see, monkey do”.
Yet, nowhere in scripture is this ritual supported. Continue reading How Many Apples Are In A Seed?
Brian, one of our team members, was checking out to see if Andrew’s legs were even. We were out ministering at a flea market and sitting at a taco tent with some wacky music playing in the background which you can hear in the video below.
Well, it turned out that Andrew’s right leg was slightly shorter than his left leg. No problem. Brian commanded it to grow out in Jesus’ name. Then he commanded it to keep growing even further to see how far it would come out. Continue reading Growing A Leg Out & In Again
We were out ministering on the streets in New York City and had teamed up with another healing outreach team.
I met one of their team members whose name was Leo and who was suffering from back pain. He had been prayed for by others on the team and experienced some relief but it was a stubborn demon that still gave him grief. So we took the devil by surprise and knocked it out altogether in 5 seconds flat and Leo was set free. Praise Jesus! You can watch his testimony below.

We were in New York City, having a great time with the Empire State Building Ticket Sellers (see the post & video here) when Edwin and his wife Toya approached us for prayer.
They had been observing how everyone was getting healed and baptized in the Holy Ghost and wanted in on the action. Alright!
Edwin explained that he was a believer, baptized in the Holy Spirit and “spoke in tongues and everything”. But he said that he had certain chains that needed to be broken. When asked, he said he needed “consistency”, which I assumed was consistency in his spiritual walk. He also had occasional back pain but did not have it today. Continue reading Chains Broken & Stomach Pain Healed
It was July 5th and a hot summer’s evening in NYC with temperatures in the nineties.
We met up with the team at Bryant Park by the fountain. We met Johnny there who was a newcomer to the team and was full of questions. He believed healing was true but had not seen it himself. He had been watching several videos about healing and had prayed for several people but had not seen anyone he prayed for actually get healed. He used as an example, the pain he had in his knee and shared that 3 people had already prayed for it but he had not been healed. Continue reading Street Healing in New York City
So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. Continue reading Sons And Daughters Of God
Ever since I was a kid in school, I loved Show & Tell. It would be a welcome relief from all the teaching just to sit back and watch as other kids would bring in an object and then tell the class what they knew about it. One day a boy caught every child spellbound when he told about ice cream. Unfortunately he only brought in pictures and books and talked about how it was made and not the real thing. But being overly familiar with the stuff, in our mind’s eye, we could all taste it and hung on his every word.
Then one day came my turn. So I brought in a Dutch sailboat made out of a wooden shoe with sail and all. My parents were Dutch immigrants and had brought this fine specimen with them from their old country, Holland. The kids loved it as I am sure they had never seen such a thing before.
Every kid loved Show & Tell and none were ever bored or looking out the window as they would with the everyday teachings. It was a live show and a hands on demonstration that captured everyone’s attention and held it captivated every second until the show was over. Continue reading Show & Tell
As exciting as it is to see someone you pray for instantly get healed, it is even more thrilling to see one of your team members perform their very first healing.
Anand, one of our newest team members, joined us for one of our outreaches to a local outdoor flea market. We approached a young woman who was walking with a cane. Her name was Isabella and she was there with her husband, her son and her mother. She said that she had pain in her right leg but mostly in her left foot. You could see that she was wearing two completely different shoes.
She had gotten an infection in her foot which had progressively gotten worse and was walking around with this for 6 months. She was scheduled to go to a special clinic in New York to have surgery on her foot. Continue reading Activating A New Team Member
We were out on the streets in New York City with our team and bumped into a group of Empire State Building Observatory Ticket Sellers.
We approached Ramone who said he had pain in his back. He was already a believer in Jesus but had been suffering from severe back pain for the last 4 months. When he was prayed for by Josh and John, he was instantly healed and set free. He was so thrilled and was excited to share his testimony on video (see below).
He also prayed with us and received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues. He said he could feel it in his stomach. This was the rivers of living waters flowing from his belly as Jesus talks about in John 7:38.
He was so excited that he called over his friend and fellow Ticket Seller, George who also had pain in his back, and told him to let me pray for him. However, when I started to pray for George, I suddenly realized that this would be a terrific opportunity to activate Ramone in the grace of healing (it is not really a special “gift” of healing but a “charisma” in Greek or “grace effect” of having and operating in the Holy Spirit given to every believer that will simply walk in it and exercise it by faith) and let him heal his friend George . Continue reading On Top Of The World
After a week at the JGLM Annual Conference, it was time to go home. I had arranged for a shuttle to pick me up at my hotel and take me to the airport. When the shuttle arrived, the driver greeted me with a big, friendly smile as he took my suitcase. I introduced myself and he told me his name was Tucker. He had a bit of an accent but he spoke good English. I quickly learned that he was from Liberia and that he and his wife wanted to move back there next year. Liberia, I looked it up, is a country about the size of the state of Maine on the west coast of Africa nestled between Sierra Leone, Guinea and Côte d’Ivoire.
He asked me what I did and I shared with him that I was a minister. I also explained that I was here in Dallas at a conference this past week to learn how to train people in healing. “So you can really heal people?” he questioned me. “Yes. Do you have any pain in your body?” I asked him. “Oh, yes! My back is really hurting right now.” he responded. “No problem.” I said, “Let me pray for you”. Continue reading Sending The Message To Liberia
David Hobday, one of our team members, was with us in New York City on one of our mission trips when he wanted to buy some nuts from a street vendor. As he was paying for the nuts, he casually asked her if she had any pain in her body. She said that she had pain in her back.
So Dave offered to pray for her back and she accepted. After he prayed and commanded the pain to go and her back to be healed, he told her to look for the pain. She politely ignored his instructions and thanked him. Like most people, she did not expect anything to happen. Continue reading Going Nuts – Lady Vendor Gets Instantly Healed
Why is it that most Christians today do not believe Jesus?
O sure, they believe in Jesus but do they believe what Jesus said? O sure, they believe some of the things Jesus said but do they believe everything Jesus said. O sure, they believe He said it, but do they believe that He really meant everything He said? O sure, they believe that He meant what He said, but do they believe that He meant it for all believers? O sure, they believe that He meant it for some of the believers like the apostles and disciples, but do they believe it applies to today’s believers? O sure, they believe that some of it applies to today’s believers, but do they believe it applies to them as believers? O sure, they believe some of it applies to them, but do they believe that all of it applies directly to them today and to them personally? Continue reading A New Pair Of Spectacles
I can’t really remember when it started but it was about 22 years ago. It was a pain in my left shoulder and arm that went all the way down to my hand. It started gradually but got worse every day until I could not use my hand or move my arm at all without experiencing severe pain. It even hurt while I was sleeping and would wake me up if I turned in my bed.
It was most annoying, not to mention, most uncomfortable. One day my young son came running up to me and said “Hey, dad!” while he tapped on my hand. I almost went through the roof. “What’s wrong with your hand?” he asked. “Nothing.” I said. I did not want him to know or to worry that there was anything wrong. The closest thing I could describe it as would be rheumatoid arthritis although I don’t really know because I never went to a doctor to have it checked out. Partly because I did not want a doctor to establish a name for it but mostly because I wanted the Lord to heal it.
After much praying and reflection I firmly believed it to be a spiritual attack from the enemy. I played guitar in church and had pretty much devoted my life to only writing, playing and singing Christian music. I knew that the enemy did not like that and I was convinced that it was a demonic attack to prevent me from glorifying the Lord with my playing music. Continue reading Did You Believe That You Received?
Realizing that it is physically impossible for us to be everywhere when there is a need for prayer for healing, and since we are not the Holy Spirit who can be omnipresent, we are teaching the body of Christ how to operate in the same power of the Holy Spirit that Jesus did when He ministered to us while He was here on the earth.
No true, born again believer can say that he or she cannot heal, be healed or that they were not given the gift of healing. Quite the opposite is true. In Jesus, and by His stripes, we were all given the gift and grace of healing for ourselves and to accomplish healing in others without any exceptions whatsoever. Continue reading Our Mission
About three months ago, David showed up to one of our training meetings on a night we had not scheduled one. He even brought his friend, Dennis. So we had a special meeting just for him and his friend. It was great.
In his spare time David is a Christian rapper and goes by the name FireJaws. He even has a website firejaws.com. He had a million questions and wondered why he did not see instant healings when he prayed for people. Continue reading The Activation of David Hobday
