Questions for Catholics

catholicHaving been born a Roman Catholic, raised by a father who had studied to be a Jesuit priest but did not complete his studies, and having studied Catholicism in depth before coming to the realization that RC doctrine did not line up with scripture and even contradicted it, I “came out of her” as per Revelations 18:4.

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.  Revelation 18:4

My questions for most Catholics I minister to today is simply this:

When you die as a Catholic, where will you go?   Continue reading Questions for Catholics

Back Instantly Healed

Andrea is one of our newest Team Members.

This was her first time coming out to the Meadowlands Flea Market with us where she performed several healings.  Toward the end of the day she mentioned that she was feeling some back pain herself and asked for prayer.

So we placed one hand on her back and commanded the pain to go and told her to do what she could not do before.   Continue reading Back Instantly Healed

It Is Written!

One of the most powerful weapons we have in our arsenal, is the word of God.  This is the sword in our armor, the sword of the spirit which is the word of God.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:  Ephesians 6:17

Jesus knew this very well and used this weapon Himself three times on Satan when he tempted Him in the desert at His weakest moment being hungry after 40 days of fasting, telling his enemy, “It is written…“.  This is recorded for us in the gospels of Matthew and Luke.   Continue reading It Is Written!

Muslim Woman In Wheelchair Instantly Healed

We were at the flea market when we saw a man pushing his wife in a wheelchair.  She wore the traditional hijab headgear that indicated that they were Muslim.

I approached the husband and told him I noticed his wife’s wheelchair and that I was a minister and asked him if I could pray for his wife.  He did not answer.  So I asked him if he spoke English.

“Oh, I speak English alright but we are Muslim.”  He finally responded.  I opened my arms wide and proclaimed “But Jesus is in the Qur’an.”   Continue reading Muslim Woman In Wheelchair Instantly Healed

Watch it here:   Continue reading Thumb’s Up…Thumb’s Down!

Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 10 & Conclusion

Holy Ghost Fillling StationSo how do we not waver in our faith and give unbelief the boot?  By forgetting about self and dying to self and recognizing that the source of every bit of our power is Jesus and looking unto Him alone.  We have died and He has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: (Ephesians 2:6)

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.  Galatians 2:20   Continue reading Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 10 & Conclusion

Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 9

Continued from Part 8

jesus-1This was not some unique kind of demon that needed special prayer and fasting attention or otherwise it would not obey the name of Jesus.  No, every demon no matter their rank or status in hell, is subject to Jesus and to us in His name without exception.  They are all of their father the devil and must bow the knee when commanded to do so.  Even Satan himself is subject to Jesus’ authority.   Continue reading Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 9

Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 8

Pharisees.jpgContinued from Part 7

So fasting was not the issue here.  Unbelief was.  So now back to the question, what caused the disciples to suddenly operate in unbelief where they had already operated successfully in full belief before?  Remember we explained earlier that the opposite of faith was unfaith or the absence of faith?

Actually one of the causes of this absence of faith is the absence of correct doctrine.  How can one have correct faith when their underlying doctrine is in error?   They had been fed on man made doctrines and religion all their lives.  And who taught them these doctrines?  The scribes!   Continue reading Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 8

sacred-cowContinued from Part 6

So what caused these disciples to all of a sudden waiver in their faith to the point of not being able to speak and perform in faith and full authority as they had already done before?  Could it be that they had not fasted enough?  This is often cited as a prerequisite and/or excuse as to why a demon is not cast out or someone is not healed.  After all, is this not what Jesus said that “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.“?   Continue reading Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 7

Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 6

Faith as a Mustard SeedContinued from Part 5

Jesus was not only the Son of God but He was also the express image of the Father.  He said, “If you have seen me then you have seen the Father.”  Therefore everything that Jesus spoke was the Father’s will for His people.  It was never the Father’s will that His creation be enslaved and oppressed.  And this was at the core of His message which He spoke through Jesus, announcing the acceptable year of the liberation of His people.   Continue reading Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 6

Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 5

Adam_and_EveContinued from Part 4

Jesus came as the last Adam to restore the dominion of the earth back to man which the first Adam had given away to the enemy by his disobedience.   This dominion, that was originally theirs, is what Jesus was trying to instill in the people every opportunity He had.  Like a long lost and forgotten inheritance that rightfully belonged to them.  This is why He told them that according to their faith so be it unto them.  What was their faith?  What did they believe?  That they had power with God?  Not quite.  They believed that they were powerless and subject to the oppression of the enemy.   Continue reading Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 5

Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 4

FaithContinued from Part 3

All of a sudden Jesus appeared on the scene and boy were the disciples glad to see Him, they ran to Him together with all the people.

And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.  Mark 9:15

Jesus was very perceptive to the whole situation that was going on.

And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them? Mark 9:16

Notice that He asked the scribes, not His disciples, what they were questioning them about.  He knew the evil that was in their hearts.  Also notice that the scribes would not answer Him back but kept silent as if they had been caught in the act of talking about Him behind His back.  Almost like when you step into a room, and everyone suddenly stops talking and you get that awkward feeling that they were all just talking about you.   Continue reading Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 4

Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 3

Scribe.pngContinued from Part 2

We find a clue in the following verse:

And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.  Mark 9:14

Aha!  Now why would the scribes be questioning them?  The scribes were the lawyers of those days, well versed in the Mosaic laws and quite intimidating to the common Jew of that day.  Most Jews would have to go to the temple to be able to hear the word read to them.  They did not have a copy of the scrolls in their home since these were sacred and kept at the temple.  The scribes had the scriptures at their fingertips and on the tip of their tongue at all times and unlimited access to study them day and night.  They were the doctors and experts of the law and were revered by the common folk.  They were also the ones who would step in at trials to quote scripture and verse in condemning a trespasser of the law.  But they were also the ones who honored God with their lips but their heart was far from Him.   Continue reading Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 3

Continued from Part 1

Not so, in third world countries where demons dominate out in the open through witchcraft and in your face physical manifestations. Just ask anyone from a third world country if they believe that demons are real and you will get a resounding “Oh, Yes!”

Why this difference between the two hemispheres? Could it be because of our ‘pride of life’?  In our western culture we have plenty of luxury and distractions, most of which are electronic, to keep us busy and it is not considered as sophisticated for us to believe in superstitions such as demons and witchcraft.

It is appalling to see how many people watch horror movies completely dulling their senses and discernment of the spiritual and fluff it off as it just being fantasy and not real anyway.  Or how we teach our children to celebrate the underworld Halloween with demonic ghouls and goblins, strangled dummies and graves with headstones on our front lawns, witches on broomstick flying into trees, demanding “trick or treat” that if we do not get a treat, we will place a trick (spell) on them, and yet treat it as completely innocent child’s play.  If we do not believe in demons then we must also not believe in God either and this is their advantage.   Continue reading Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 2

Jesus was not One to mince words.  He told people exactly what they needed to hear and when they needed to hear it.

His own disciples were no exception.  When they came to Him privately to ask Him why they could not cast the demon out of a young ‘lunatic’ boy, He did not hesitate one moment.  “Because of your unbelief.” was His quick and immediate response and rebuke to set them straight.

This was the direct answer to their direct question as to why they failed in their attempt to cast the demon out of the boy.  Unbelief!

But what was this unbelief?  How did they get it?  What caused this unbelief all of a sudden in these disciples who had already performed many miracles?  How would they be able to overcome it?  And what causes unbelief in us as believers today?  How do we overcome unbelief to always be able to do the mighty works of Jesus?  Let’s explore this over the next few sessions.

Marine in Flames

USSlakechamplain.18741306_large.jpgToday I would like to share with you the amazing story of Ken Cantrell, who walked in the midst of gasoline flames from an explosion by the power of the Holy Spirit for 35 minutes rescuing the bodies of his fellow marines and was not harmed and did not even have the smell of smoke on him afterwards.

This is the story of a U.S. marine who was preserved from death through the power of the Holy Spirit. Today, brother Ken Cantrell preaches about the redemption of both the body and heart. The Holy Spirit surrounded his body and saved his life from the fire!   Continue reading Marine in Flames

Smack Yourself Into Healing

Chris who was at our Life Team session this week for the 2nd time, prayed for Roger who had joined us on Skype.  Roger had a nasty reaction to a Tamilflu generic equivalent vaccination shot (these are pure poison! – the word pharmaceuticals comes from the Greek word paharmakeia which means witchcraft as in drug-related sorcery, like the practice of magical-arts) and was suffering pain in his head.

After Chris prayed for Roger laying his hand on the screen, Roger’s pain immediately diminished but what little pain was left, shifted to one side of his teeth.  After praying a second time the pain shifted to the other side of his teeth.   Continue reading Smack Yourself Into Healing

Jesus Saves From Traffic Tickets

traffic-ticketThis is the second time, Jesus has saved me from a traffic ticket.

The first time was about 2 years ago when I was stopped for speeding.  I was driving about 48 mph in a 30 mph zone heading to a new church building where I was not familiar with the roads.  Trying to find my way, I was not paying much attention to the speed limit and sure enough, the red and blue emergency lights all of a sudden appeared in my mirrors lighting up my car and I had to pull over.

“Lord Jesus, You are my Deliverer.  Let Your will be done.”  I prayed as I rolled down my window.   Continue reading Jesus Saves From Traffic Tickets

Evil Communication

islandNo matter where you turn today, bad news dominates discussion.  Every day we take in an ample dose of evil communication of fear and anxiety, of sickness and disease, of financial oppression, theft and ruin, of murder and death, of lives being decimated and destroyed by the enemy.

This is by design.  Not by God but by the enemy.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.  John 10:10

Part of the war machine of an aggressor nation is propaganda.  The first goal is to overtake and control all the communications of the population they seek to conquer.  It is a battle of the minds and to control the dialogue in an attempt to program the thoughts of the people.  Have you ever wondered why they call radio and television broadcasts ‘programming’?   Continue reading Evil Communication

Remote Discipleship

7fields-whiteOn Saturday, January 7th, 2017, I received this email below from Ernesto.  To this day, I have never met him in person yet but I hope to someday soon.  He lives in Virginia (I am in New Jersey) and had sent in a prayer request which was forwarded to me in September of 2016.  After praying with him over the phone, I asked him if he would like to be on our email list which he confirmed he would.  Here is what he wrote me 4 months later:   Continue reading Remote Discipleship

Dead Raisings

jesus-raises-lazarusToday I would like to share with you 2 testimonies of people who were very recently raised from the dead.

In Matthew 10:8 Jesus instructed His disciples to “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Also in Matthew 28:18-20, “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

This confirms beyond a shadow of doubt that we as believers are to raise the dead.  Continue reading Dead Raisings

Behold I Give You Power

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.  Luke 10:19

deputy-sheriff-badgeJesus spoke this to 82 disciples, not just the 12 apostles as some believe.  So right here we see that the apostles were not the only ones who were given power to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers and raise the dead.

The first word translated here as “power” is the Greek word “exousia” which literally means “delegated authority” as in the lawful authority to exercise supernatural force.  Since Jesus had been delegated this authority as the son of man from the Father at His baptism in the Holy Ghost, He was able to delegate it in turn to whomever He desired.  All true believers have this same authority.   Continue reading Behold I Give You Power

Plan Of The Ages

dispensation_of_innocenceHave you ever wondered what happened from the beginning of time when God created the universe?  And what will happen in the near and distant future?  And what will happen all the way until the end of time?

And what God’s plans are concerning the earth, the gathering if His church, the tribulation, the antichrist, Jesus’ second coming, the millennium or 1,000 year reign, the rebirth of the nation of Israel, the ruling of the saints with Christ, the New Jerusalem descending out of heaven to earth, the new heavens and the new earth, God the Father dwelling on earth with us, and all the events God has set into motion?   Continue reading Plan Of The Ages

Jesus Lifts Woman Out Of Wheelchair

wheelchair-upJason, one of our team members, had joined us at the flea market outreach on Saturday morning.   We came across a man pushing his wife in a wheelchair and approached them explaining that we were ministers and offered to pray for her.

Her name was Jewel and she had had surgery on her left knee.  She said that she was a believer so I asked her,  “Do you believe that Jesus is able to heal you right now?”  “Yes!  I believe that!” she replied.  I offered for Jason to pray for her and he jumped right in.  He placed his hand on her left knee and commanded the pain the get out and for her knee to be completely healed.   Continue reading Jesus Lifts Woman Out Of Wheelchair

World-Class?

d-a-carson-quote-heavenOn my way to a seminar today, I passed a billboard on the highway that was advertising for a local hospital.  It offered “World-Class emergency care locally here in Wayne, New Jersey.”

“World-Class?” I thought, “I don’t want World-Class!  I want Heaven-Class!”  Who wants to be cut up with knives, burnt with radiation or poisoned with chemical drugs when you can be instantly healed in the wonderful name of Jesus?  Right?   Continue reading World-Class?
