Here we are in the middle of summer, and it is amazing to see the hand of God in our world, nation, ministry and family. To hear the great reports of God moving in the nations is exciting. Seeing revival break out in West VA and in NC is so wonderful. Seeing all the miracles in our own ministry the Lord has blessed us with, has renewed our faith, that Jesus is the Healer! And for the past 9+ months, we have been so blessed by living on a barrier island and getting to see the Atlantic Ocean on one side, and the Bay behind us! God is truly and awesome God!
What are You Believing God For?
This phrase just came to me as I started to write this newsletter, and it will not go away. As a partner of our ministry in one way or another, I sense in my spirit, that you need God to do something for you! Sometimes our needs are immediate and sometimes they are futuristic. What do you need God to do for you!
Whatever your need is, I am here to tell you, to encourage you, that God not only knows your need, but He wants to help you by meeting that need now! He is a now God! He is a good God!
The only thing He requires is that you have faith in Him! In other words, all you have to do is believe! Believing is something you do every day! You believe in family and friends every day! You believe the chairs you set in will hold you up, every day! You believe to drink and eat every day! You believe for something good to happen to you, every day!
So the fact God requires you and I to believe in Him, is not something hard, or foreign to us! He is asking us to use something we use every day! He is asking us to use something we are experts in using! He is asking us to use something we were created to use every day, which is our faith!
God Loves You
Many people when they have a need, forget this one very simple truth….that God loves them! Everything He does, He does because He loves someone or something! He saves because He loves! He heals because He loves! He delivers because He loves! He restores because He loves! And guess what, He loves you!
Love reaches out to help! Love wants to see someone else blessed and fulfilled! Love desires only one thing in return, a simple thank you! And guess what, even if you forget to thank Him, He still loves you!
Love goes the extra mile! Love makes a way when there seems no way! Love prefers the other person! Love provides whatever is needed!
I have noticed, when people need to be healed, they think if they do something, then maybe God will heal them! There is no faith or believing! They are only hoping God will heal and leave it up to God to do something! And you know, they usually are not healed.
Remember, God has already provided healing for you! Just like He provided salvation for you, but salvation did you no good until you believed!
Healing is the same way! He has already provided healing for you! All you have to do is believe! It is that simple!
What are You Waiting For?
No matter your need, God can and will meet it now, if you will only believe! Get rid of the faith robbers of unbelief and doubt. And instead, believe God now! Your faith in Him, will bring you the miracle you need today! It is up to you, just believe!
Believe now not tomorrow! God loves you and wants to help you now! You are the apple of His eye, the pearl of great price, and His son or daughter! He is reaching out to you now! Allow Him to help you! No matter what others say, no matter what others do, this is your time to believe God! He will not disappoint you! Only believe!
God spoke to me a few years ago about His desire to heal, deliver, and restore people! He challenged me to preach and teach on His healing power and how easy it is to get healed! I have recently devoted for this time, to preach every time, on healing and show people how easy it is to be healed. And we have seen amazing results!
In June, we traveled back to Oklahoma to minister. We first spoke on the closing night of an amazing conference in Sapulpa, held at Open Door Fellowship, pastored by our friends, Steve and Sherry Farmer! The night started with amazing worship! During worship, God showed me several people I knew I would eventually minister to. When it was time for me and Kim to speak, the anointing was so thick and rich!
Kim had a great word as normal, and when I started to preach on the Anointing of the King, the Spirit of God started to move in a mighty way. God had me call out a young man, who stood there in a posture as if to say, let’s see what you’ve got! As I started to ministry to Him and word of knowledge, He seemed unimpressed!
But suddenly, God started to speak to him through me about his past life! I mentioned that the bullets that were meant for him, hit someone else! The knife stabbings that were meant for him, happened to someone else! Those who died, should have been him. He started to break and then he was crying as he could no longer hold back the tears!
I stopped the service, and this young man accepted Jesus as Lord! Glory to God!
Later in the service, while I was ministering, I noticed this young man, down on the ground, thrashing all over the floor. The veins in his neck were bulging out, his face was turning red and then purple. His skin was so tight, it looked like it was about to burst. An elder from the church was praying for him. I went to the young man, put my right hand in the middle of his chest, and cast the devil out of him. After about 3 minutes, the devil came out, all the thrashing stopped, and he was in his right mind! Praise God! For about an hour and a half, we say God heal, deliver, and restore His people. God is so good!
The next morning at the Rock Church in Catoosa, led by Pastor Lavonna Ashlock, we once again saw tremendous healings! Sunday night in Muskogee, OK, with our friends Pastors Rick and Angela Stevens, who pastor Christian Chapel Church, we saw people walk who had not walked in years. One man had been using a cane for 46 years, after hearing the message on how easy it is to be healed, got up and walked without the use of the cane, and walked out of the building, opening the door himself, and walked to the car without the cane! We saw so many people healed, it was a tremendous night!
We ministered Monday night at Pastors John & Shawn Bailey’s church, Hope Family Worship
Center, in Ramona, OK. We saw such an outpouring of God’s Spirit, the gifts flowed, and people were encouraged in the Holy Ghost. And we were blessed with a wonderful dinner with the Bailey family!
Our ministry trip ended in Altus, AR at Pastors Mike and Trish Pennington’s church, Abundant Life Fellowship. After preaching the word here on the Anointing of the King, we saw people healed, and several got drunk in the Holy Ghost! When was the last time you saw that in church! Pastor Mike told me, the word I preached, confirmed a word God had been speaking to him in regards to something in his personal life! Praise God!
As you can see, God is pouring out His healing power in our meetings. Please pray, that this continues and increases as we continue to preach about Jesus is the Healer!
