God Wants You Well

Let me encourage you today, God is on your side! No matter what you are facing, no matter how big the giant, God is bringing you the victory your life needs today! Do not quit, do not give up! If God is for you, who can be against you!

We serve a big, loving, giving God who wants the very best for you. When difficult times come, and they will come, He will navigate you through the obstacles and bring you out in a way that exalts Him and frees you!

God Wants You Well

Today, let me share a word with you that is burning inside of me for you, and that word is God wants you well! He wants you well in your body, in your soul (mind, intellect, emotions), and in your spirit. He also wants you well in your finances, in relationships, and in all the other areas in your life!

If you know God wants you well, then you are half way to being well. All you need to do is BELIEVE! When you believe the Word of God and the Spirit of God, then you are obeying Him! When you obey Him, He helps you be well in every area of your life, and especially in the area you are believing Him for.

God has made it easy for us to be well. He has provided for the well-being of our lives through the life, burial, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus. Through Jesus, we have access to everything we need to live a victorious life.

Well in Your Body

Lately, I have been preaching on how easy it is to be healed in your body! It is not hard to be healed. Jesus made it easy to be healed. I have found in my life time, that most Christians are not healed supernaturally because they are either waiting on God to heal them, or they think if they get around some anointed minister, then maybe their anointing will come off of them and onto to their body to heal them.

In most cases it never does happen, because there is little or no faith in those methods. Because, God has already provided the healing they need; He is not going to doing anything else to heal them. God only responds to faith, and faith with corresponding actions is what it takes to be healed.

I have heard ministers say, “receive your healing,” as if there is something the person does not have, that they need to receive from God in order to be healed! “Receive your healing” sounds Biblical, and even sounds Spiritual, but I cannot find one place in the Bible that says that. Jesus did say over and over again, go your way, your faith has made you whole. But he never said, receive your healing. Why? Because He understood that when faith puts a demand on the anointing of God, then the anointing of God must respond! When your faith puts a demand on the power of God to be healed, then God must respond, to answer that faith.

Remember what Jesus said in John 14:10….”but the Father that dwells in me, he doeth the works.” In other words Jesus said, I am not the one healing you, but my Father in me is the one who is healing you.

Jesus also reminded us that He and the Father are one. So if the Father lives in Jesus, and He is doing the works, then we must find a way to the Father. The great thing is, we have access to the Father through Jesus!

Colossians 2:9 says, “For in Him, dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.” That means that in Jesus is the fullness of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.” If you are a Christian, this means, that inside of you is the fullness of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost through Christ. If the Father is the one healing through Jesus and Jesus lives in you, then you have the power to be healed already, on the inside of you, in Jesus! Wow!!

Just like God made it easy to be saved, He has made it easy to be healed! Getting saved was easy, all you had to do, was believe in your heart and speak with your mouth, that Jesus was raised from the dead for the forgiveness of your sins, and once you believed that, He came in to your spirit, and gave you His Spirit. He then kicked out the old sinful nature you were born with. In other words, He transformed you form the inside out!

You can be healed just as easy. The Healer lives on the inside of you through Christ! All you have to do is believe, it is that easy! Believe that it is by His stripes that you are healed. Believe that as believers lay their hands on you, you are healed. Believe the power of God to heal, is already inside of you, in Christ, and all you have to do to activate that power, is believe!

For unbelievers, all they need to do is believe that God the Father lives in Jesus and Jesus will heal them now if they will only believe! Sometimes it is easier to get unbelievers healed because they simply believe the Word of God!

What are you believing for today? Simply believe God will heal you now, and activate His power by believing His Word, and watch the power of God heal your body, heal your emotions, and heal your spirit! It is time for you to walk a life of being well, all the time, giving glory to your God through His Son, Jesus Christ!

Ministry Update

We just got back to NJ from our recent ministry trip to Minnesota and Oklahoma. We had a tremendous time with our friend, Pastor Greg Warner, Life Family Church in N Mankato, MN. We saw a tremendous move of God’s Spirit and His healing power as He healed several people in their bodies. We also got to spend several days with my son and his wife and our two wonderful granddaughters. We had so much fun.

Next we stopped in Olathe, KS and saw my in-laws for a wonderful visit and some great food. It had been a while since I last saw them. Kim and I really enjoyed our time with them, and catching up.

From there we traveled to Oklahoma, stayed with some great friends in Broken Arrow. We preached for Apostle Ron Venters, Christ Kingdom Builders Church, and saw another great move of the healing power of God.

Our travels took us to Ponca City where we got to spend several days with my daughter, her husband and our two grandsons. What a joy that was as Landon and Jace have really grown up.

The next stop was Chelsea, OK where we preached for our great friends, Pastors Garry & Reba Wilson, at the Sanctuary Church. Again, we saw God’s healing power show up in a very strong way.

We then went back to Tulsa and attended The Fire for the Nations Conference, hosted by Pastors Mark & Janet Brazee. The conference was tremendous, as we were refreshed and more determined than ever in our assignment in NYC. The minister’s meetings were wonderful as well. We also attended a Minister’s Luncheon at Victory Christian Center and were able to say hello to Pastor Paul, Pastor Sharon, and so many friends we have known for a number of years. It was a lot of fun.

Next it was back to Ponca City for some more fun with Landon and Jace. We also enjoyed Christine and Cameron, but the grandsons stole the show. Though Christine and I had fun playing pool and throwing darts.

Last Sunday we preached in the morning for Pastors David & Francie Markham at New Life, in Wilburton, OK. Again, we saw many people healed and delivered by the power of God! God is so good!

Sunday night, we were with our wonderful friends, Pastors Rick & Angela Stevens, Christian Chapel, in Muskogee, OK. Another great service where the power of God came down to heal, deliver, and restore His people. We give God all the praise and honor for all the salvations, rededications, healings, restorations, and encouraging He did in touching His people with His Word, His Spirit, and His power. Glory to God!

What are You Believing God For?

July 23, 2016

 

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!

 Ministry Update

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!

Visions & Disappointments

Dear Friends,

Here on the East Coast it is hard to tell what month it is. If you gauge the season by the weather, you might think it is March, with the colder temperatures and winds. Though we have had a few days of great spring weather, we have had more days that have not been so great. Last Saturday, it was gorgeous and around 82 degrees and then yesterday, the high was 58 with 30 mph winds. I guess one of the characteristics to living on the Jersey Shore is the unpredictability of the weather. I am looking forward to getting warmer weather here once and for all.

Vision & Disappointments

Have you had God give you a vision or a dream, and you stepped out to start, and nothing seemed to work, everything seemed to stop? Maybe everything started coming against you or was telling you there is no way this will ever happen? On the inside you wanted to quit, and even said to God, it is not worth it. But deep down, inside your spirit, you know what God spoke to you and you know you must go forward, but you ask yourself, how? When will I see a change? How do I continue?

Being in full time ministry the past 32 years, I have experienced this first hand many times, and I have watched others go through it as well. When you know what the assignment is, and you know the timing is now, but it still has not taken off, what do you do? The answer is really very simple, you go back and do what got you to this place, get in the Word of God, spend more time with Him, and listen to what He tells you to do and do it!

Part of the journey with God, is being positioned to where you are totally dependent on Him. This Divine positioning is what He does best and can make us very uncomfortable. Living on the edge with Him, can be very lonely and very uneasy. But it is here, where you will see the greatest miracles of anybody on the planet. It is here, on the edge with Him, that He does what He does best, and that is moving everything in heaven and earth for our benefit.

Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.” When it looks like it is not working, I am here to tell you, it is working, you just cannot see it. When your mind tells you your nuts and it is time to quit, when others question if you really heard God, when your enemy screams at you, “you are done”, what do you do, you believe God!

 When God gives a vision, He sees the end before He shows you the beginning! If He releases the vision to you, that means it will be successful, for He has never failed and never will, He is almighty God!!! Hold on to that vision, do not quit, for God has seen you as being faithful in fulfilling it!

Sure, disappointments will come, but God!! I said, but God!!! Even God Himself has disappointments at times. He was furious at man, His very own creation when they rebelled against Him, and He wanted to destroy man. But a man of God reminded Him of His own words, and God changed His mind and repented to Moses. Imagine that, God so disappointed that He wanted to wipe out His creation but He backed off, and gave man another chance because one person stood in the gap, interceded, and declared to God that He must not give up on those who were rebelling against Him. Wow!

Disappointments will come, it will not always be a smooth ride. This notion, that whenever you follow God, the journey becomes easy and smooth is not what the Bible teaches. It will be rough at times. At times, you may feel like God has abandoned you! But know when Heaven goes silent, there is activity in the spiritual realm and God is getting ready to show Himself strong on your behalf! Hang in there, it will get better, because of Him!

Walking on Water and Failing

A God given vision will at some time cause you to get out of your boat and walk on the water. There will be a moment, when you make a quality decision to leave your comfort zone, and venture out into the unknown to answer the call of God! When you get out of your boat and start walking, is when the true journey of faith begins. Now it is you, Jesus and the elements!

What will you do? Will you keep walking or will you give up? As long as you keep walking with your eyes on Jesus, your faith will allow you to do the impossible! But once you get your eyes off of Jesus and onto other things, you will start to sink and failure will be right in front of you! Keep walking and keep looking at Jesus!

 If you do start to sink, reach out to Jesus and He will lift you up! He will walk with you again, and help get you back to the boat, and take you to places you never dreamed of, with Him! He loves you more than He loves the vision/dream He has given you, never forget that!!

 Coming Back to Jesus Moments

We have all been there, your proceeding down the path Jesus has been leading you down, and all of a sudden, out of nowhere, Jesus seems to disappear, Heaven goes silent, and you feel all alone. You pray, seek God, and nothing. You talk to spiritual leaders and advisors and nothing. You pray some more, read the Bible and nothing. Even the anointing seems to be gone!

You get restless, your emotions are screaming at you, and you find yourself yelling/screaming at God! Where are you? Do you care? Why is the vision not going forward? Is this the end? Am I done? Did you bring me this far, to just drop me? Where are you?

Nothing but silence! These are what I call, coming back to Jesus moments! Why must we have moments like these? I think it’s because He loves us so much, He wants to see if our relationship with Him more important than the assignment He has given us? I think that may be He wants us to empty ourselves of ourselves, so we can be filled with Him and Him only! I think it is because He wants to make sure we will be successful and that will only happen, if He is calling the shots.

During these moments, have enough sense to realize, God is still there. He feels what you feel! And He wants your attention! He wants to help you! He wants to take you from this place to a better place! His desire is to fill your heart with Himself and then use you for His glory! Will you let Him have His way? Surrender your will, the vision/dream to Him, and watch Him go to work with you once again!

Remember, He called you, you did not call Him! This is His work, this is His dream, this is His vision! He has picked you out of the crowd! With over 7 billion people alive today on the earth, He picked you for this assignment.

He saw you as being faithful, obedient, and successful! No one else can do this the way you can do it. See yourself as He sees you, be confident in Him, and allow Him to use you for His plans and purposes! You can do this because He is doing it with you! Allow Him to lead, you follow, and watch the fulfillment of everything He has shown you, appear right before you. He is faithful and so are you!

 Ministry Update

We continue to have our Prophetic/Healing Meetings twice a month on Staten Island, NY. As we pray for people, we are seeing lives changed and miracles happen.

NYC Prayer/Healing Services to Start

December 22, 2015

Dear Partner,

As Christmas is approaching, Kim and I are praying for you to have a safe, prosperous, and fun time with your family and friends. May the love Jesus has put in your hearts, be used to touch the lives of those around you this Christmas Season.

Special Announcement

Last month, we shared with you, the vision God has put in our hearts for the people of NYC. He has instructed us to put 5 churches in NYC (1 in each of the 5 boroughs). We were led to prayer walk/drive in Lower Manhattan and on Staten Island first.

The strategy He has given us, is to start with Prayer/Healing Services twice a month in one location. As these services grow, we will expand the space we need, and eventually, once we have a strong core group, start a church! We are really excited about this new vision God started speaking to me over 3 ½ years ago, knowing NOW is the time to get started!

First Step: Staten Island

The Lord has made it clear to us that we are to start in Staten Island. We have now signed a contract with Hampton Inn & Suites, 1120 South Ave, Staten Island, NY 10314, to hold Prayer/Healing Services there. The Hotel phone number is: 718.477.1600.

Our first service will be Jan. 14 @ 7:00 pm, at the Hampton Inn & Suites mentioned above. We are so excited to get started reaching the people of NYC, Staten Island, and NJ. God is so good!

Here is our schedule for the next several months, for Staten Island:

Jan. 14 & 28 7:00 pm
Feb. 11 & 25 7:00 pm
Mar. 10 & 24 7:00 pm
Apr. 14 & 28 7:00 pm
May 12 & 26 7:00 pm

The people of Staten Island, after Superstorm Sandy, were left stranded! No one came to help them. They cried out for help, for weeks, before anyone responded. I remember tears running down my face when I first saw them. They were so hopeless!

The Lord spoke to my heart and said, “I’m giving you a heart for these people.” I was shocked. Over time, He kept showing me these people and NYC. My heart burns to reach these people with Jesus and His healing power!

Will You Help Us?

We have come this far on our faith, in God’s new vision for our lives! He sold our house in Tulsa (our belongings are still stored there), moved us to our shore house in NJ, and has now opened this door at the Hampton Inn & Suites on Staten Island to start His vision for NYC!

We will continue to walk by faith in reaching NYC! We will not be stopped or delayed! Who can stop God?

We need you to continue to pray for the people of NYC and for the Jan. 14 & 28 meetings. We need to start strong and see each meeting, get stronger and stronger! We are believing for people to be saved, healed, restored, and delivered by the power of God!

The Bible tells us we walk by faith and not by sight! We are a debt free ministry and always will be! We will not borrow and we will not incur debt! We believe where God guides, He provides!

The Lord has spoken to our hearts that He would raise up partners/sponsors who would come along aside of us and help us in prayer and financially! Would you help us reach these precious people of NYC, Staten Island and NJ?

Arrived in New Jersey

October 13, 2015

Dear Partner,

My heart is so full of gratitude, thankfulness, love, excitement, and compassion to our God! He has been and currently is so good to us! I am believing that you too are experiencing His amazing grace, health, and provision in your life! We serve an awesome God!

We Have Moved!

After having our house in Tulsa on the market for almost a year, it has sold! We give God all of the glory! Not only has the house sold, we are now living in our Shore House in NJ! Us and our two golden retrievers, Summer (14 yrs old) and Spencer (9 yrs old), arrived here in Lavallette last Friday night!

This journey started three years ago, on 9/2/12 when God first starting speaking to me about a new assignment, which included moving to NJ and reaching the people in NJ, NYC, and up and down the Eastern Seaboard! He told me that NYC would be our mission field.

In the Midwest, 80% of the people believe in God! Here in this area, 80% would tell you they do not believe in God! People here have told me, they do not have time for God, that their schedule does not permit it.

So we have transitioned to a completely different culture! When I look back at all the words God has spoken to me and Kim since 9/2/12, it now is 7106 words, in an 18 page Word document. There is not one contradiction in the entire document.

In 1982, in Colby, KS (college baseball coach), at the half way point in a 4 mile run, I had an open vision and the audible word of God came to me. In the last part of that vision, I saw a church with the Glory of God hitting it, people coming in and out on all 4 sides of the church, and knew someday I would pastor that church.

Well, that time has now come! We have now been positioned by our God, to start reaching people with the message that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). We are about to see the salvation, healing, deliverance, and restoration of our God to the people in this area. Glory!

God is a God of Steps

On 12/31/12 the Lord spoke to me that He was a God of steps and that He would show me one step at a time. On 7/16/14 I heard the Lord say to me, moving to NJ will open the doors for you. Well, we are here and have taken the first step. We now are expecting doors to open supernaturally for us, starting now!

Recently, the Lord showed me 2 steps we were to take immediately:

  • Move to NJ-done!
  • Start Prayer Meetings in NYC for NYC
  • We are now seeking God about the location of where He wants us to start these Prayer Meetings! Prayer paves the way for the will of God! Nothing happens unless someone prays! Miracles, fulfillment of God’s will, supernatural power, only come from prayer and spending time seeking Him. Agree with us, that we continue to hear His voice correctly, are led by His Spirit, and obey His will for our life!

God’s Dreams & Visions Come True

We know from the Word of God, that His dreams and visions are for an appointed time. Our appointed time has now come! With it comes the protection, provision, health, empowerment to do what He has commanded. We are so humbled that He would give us this empowerment to reach the people in NYC.

We have not come here with a large bank account! We have not come here with anyone person promising to give us anything! We have come in faith, believing God’s Word to us, and know that what He said will happen in our lives and in the lives of the people we will minister to. God’s dream burns in our hearts, in our minds, and in our spirits.

As we step out in faith, we can see the faces of the people and the cries of their hearts. We are here to change these people’s eternity, and see the power of God touch them in a powerful way! Will you help us reach them?

Ministry Update

We had a great service in Muskogee, OK a few Sunday nights ago. We were honored our dear friends, Pastor Rick & Angela Stevens asked us to speak at their new church, Christian Chapel. The Spirit of God really showed up in a big way, as we watched Him change the lives of those who were present.

Our last Sunday in Tulsa, we ministered in Catoosa at the Rock House Church for Pastor LaVonna Ashlock. We love this church and had another Holy Ghost encounter with God! He is so good!

God’s Will for Your Life

Let our testimony of our journey encourage you. Whatever God has spoken to you will come to pass. Step out in faith when He tells you to. Be willing to do whatever He says. And then do whatever He says, when He says it is time to step out. Your obedience will bring His supernatural empowerment as you obey Him.

There is no greater fulfillment, than knowing you are doing exactly what God has said for you to do. Let your heart be full and your life rich as you obey God! Not only will you be blessed, but Heaven will be changed forever as you touch the lives of people God has ordained for you to bless! It may take some time, but do not give up! What He has spoken will happen! We waited for over 3 years before we were released to move to NJ. We experienced a lot of adversity along the way…..BUT GOD! He always came through for us. He will come through for you as well.

Is something burning in your heart to do with and for God? Keep believing, keep seeking, keep knocking, keep pressing in, and watch your God bring it to pass!     If God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, then we will see Him save, deliver, restore, and heal His people. So being praying for these meetings and services to be full of His life.  We are expecting God’s healing power to show up at every meeting and service!

God has spoken to us to have meetings and services that are full of His presence! We are going to fully embrace the moving of the Holy Ghost and expect God to confirm His Word with signs, wonders, and miracles. We will not back off of this in order to draw more people! Our meetings will not be goofy or weird. They will be set in an atmosphere, which will be conducive to seeing people healed in their spirit, soul, and bodies!

The attacks were so numerous, it became obvious to us, that the enemy does not want us here! He does not want us reaching the people of NYC! We know no weapon formed against us will prosper. Now as we press into going into NYC, we need your prayers! As He prompts you, pray and pray in the direction He leads you for us.

Will You Stand with Us?

To accomplish God’s will in NYC, we need your help! Number one, now more than ever, we need your prayers! Many of you have been praying for us, and those prayers enabled us to conquer every attack the enemy has thrown at us. In each attack, because of your prayers, God’s grace always showed up, and put us over.

 Number two, we need your financial assistance. We are still believing for the cost of the move here to NJ to be provided. That cost is $11,988.42 (includes transporting all our belongings, storage, and insurance). We have had some seed already planted towards this, but we are believing God for this expense to be met in its entirety outside of our normal budget. Nothing is too hard for our God!

Knowing that we will be having meetings and services in NYC soon, we are believing for the finances to conduct these meetings. Rental space, sound equipment, radio advertising, are just a few of the costs associated with us getting started. We will not borrow money, we are a debt free ministry and will always stay that way. So if God puts any of these expenses on your heart to help us, please obey Him. These monies will enable us to win souls and change lives! Please pray and ask God if you are to help us financially. If you are, please give whatever He tells you! Your obedience to Him will bring you a great harvest!

By you helping us to move, by you helping us with the expenses of these future meetings, you are saying to us, we believe in you, we want to help you reach the people of NJ/NYC, we want to see NYC saved and becoming a city where Jesus is Lord!Would you please stand with us?

We appreciate you and your love for God, as well as your love for us! We are answering God’s call on our lives and we need your help! Thank you in advance for your consideration in planting a financial seed into our lives .You can give by sending a check, made payable to Jere Peterson Ministries, to: Jere Peterson, PO Box 15, Lavallette, NJ 08735.

You can also give on our secure website at: www.jerepetersonministries.com.Kim and I thank you for your prayers and financial support! We are believing God to bless you beyond anything you can imagine for supporting us!

We love you, pray for you, and appreciate you standing with us! As we are now in NJ, making preparations to start prayer meetings in NYC, we thank you for all you are doing to help us in reaching these precious people! Thank you!

Blessings to our friends,

Jere & Kim

Do You Believe?

This question has been both a help and a curse to many people in the world today. We can ask this question in regards to many areas of life! Do you believe there is a great future spouse out there for you? Do you believe your dream job is out there? Do you believe…..and the list goes on and on.

Today, let me ask this question in regards to your spiritual life; Do you believe in God?

You do not need anyone to help you answer this question for you. You know what you believe, why you believe, and who you believe. Life may have thrown you a lot of “raw deals,” or a lot of heart ache, but I am here to tell you, there is One who can turn you and your situation around!

There is somebody who loves you today just they way you are!  That is so cool, so neat, and so wonderful! His name is Jesus Christ!

Jesus no matter what anyone has told you, loves you! Yes, He absolutely loves you, has a plan for you, and has nothing but good intentions for you! He is good and desires to share His life with you today! He feels your pain, your disappointments, and yes your failures! But He has the desire and ability to “turn your life around today.” Will you let Him help you?

There is only one thing you must do, and that is TO BELIEVE! Believe He lived, died, and was raised from the dead so you and I could be forgiven of our sins and restored back to God our Father! Believe He is the Son of God!

Are you ready to believe? If you are, no matter if you have never had a relationship with Jesus, or you have had one in the past, if you desire to believe today that Jesus can save, heal, restore, and deliver you, then say and believe this:

“Jesus I believe you are the Son of the Living God! I believe, you died and was raised from the dead so I could be forgiven. Jesus forgive me of every sin I have committed and come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior! Give me a brand new start! Fill me with your Spirit and show me Your Plan for my life! In Jesus name I pray and believe!”

Welcome to our family, the family of God!

Please email me at: jpm@jerepetersonministries.com so we can celebrate with you. And if you already are a believer but have some friends or family who do not believe, feel free to send this short blog to them.

Blessings,

Jere

Staying Focused Among the Chaos

There is so much chaos all around us! From ISIS, to government, business, sports, and many other venues, many if not all seem to be spiraling out of control. In a world that has gone obscene, you and I need to focus on what really matters!

You may ask, what really does matter? The answer is simple: are you fulfilling what your Divine destiny is? You may say, what is that? And I would say, you are on this planet for a purpose! You are valuable! You are unique! The world needs you, but more important His Kingdom needs you.

You may say, but I am too old, or I am too young. No excuse will do. For He has made you in His likeness and image. You have been wonderfully anointed by Him to do a work here in the earth. It is your time, this is your season, the world awaits you!

Decide today to follow Him and let Him show you the most exciting and fulfilling life in the world! His plan for your life is a great! It is full of adventure and faith!  Say yes and launch out! You can do this!!!!!!
