New Testimonies and Some Older Testimonies (from February email to friends)

Jesus is Lord!

Trip to Social Circle, GA

My friend Rick felt the Lord prompting him to go to check out this fellowship of believers in GA this past weekend. I didn't really feel like going a ton, but God said I could go if I wanted. I wanted to support him so I went. Papa had some surprises up his sleeve! Walking into a gas station, I don't know why but I kept looking at this guy's foot as he walked out of the store. There was nothing visibly wrong, but I decided to ask him, "Hey is there anything wrong with your right foot?" He said he had a broken toe. I told him God was going to heal him as I invited Him to (Sometimes all Papa needs is an invitation - we already know He wants to). He tested out his foot and was shocked that it was better! Ha Ha!

That night, the leaders of the group empowered me to release some prophetic words over their youth. Papa showed up. One of the highlights (it was a stun for me too) was that as I looked at a kid I saw a picture of him behind the wheel of a vehicle. Out of my mouth popped, "Papa gave you a car!" He fell back like three steps and said he felt like something had hit him. His grandpa had just left him his truck in his will. The young man referred to his grandpa as Papa (add southern accent). Wow! I was just as stoked!

The next night the Lord touched different people through words of knowledge for healing. The family we stayed with in GA sent the following to me via email....
----------The men from Jupiter come bearing gifts...Miracles Break Out!---------------
Rick Branson and Kris Kildosher were also visiting for the first time. They are two spirit-filled surfers from Jupiter, Florida. Rick Branson had also been a professional athlete. He had a testimony of his own. Rick showed us his foot-long scar where doctors had removed most of his lung. God had miraculously and completely restored his lung capacity a few years before.. Kris Kildosher, his friend, is a student at Bethel School of Ministry. Kris began calling out specific words of knowledge about people that God was healing. He pointed in Kathy Weeks' direction and stated that God was restoring a deaf right ear. He added that the deafness was work-related and the person was hearing a crackling, popping sound as the ear was restored. Kathy Weeks raised her hand and suddenly felt a cracking and a popping in her right ear. The next morning, on August 3, Kathy Weeks woke up with TWO PERFECT EARS! May this encourage you to never to give in, give up or doubt the goodness of our God.!

A few weeks back an awesome woman of God came to share at our home fellowship, Lynn Barletta. At the end of the meeting she felt the Lord prompting her to invite me to speak at a fellowship she hosts in a nearby city. God's favor was all over it, and I felt His prompting to go. I asked if I could bring another fireball with me, Giovanni Merrin. Giovanni was a member of the Mormon church and got touched powerfully about 7 months ago with the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. It is a blessing to have his radical faith as part of Living Waters (the home fellowship). He regularly has testimonies of casting devils out of co-workers, seeing people saved, healed and delivered! Lynn said that was fine.

Giovanni shared testimony about he and his fiance's diamond set in a ring had been growing in the Glory. They took it to the jeweler and had it tested to have documentation of its growth. Jesus can do whatever He wants and He is amazing! Hallelujah!

After that I shared some testimonies too and started to stand people up like I was going to prophesy over them and put Giovanni on the spot saying, "Giovanni, you have a word for them." He stepped out in radical faith and God, who wants to encourage people more than we do, came through and gave him accurate words of knowledge (insights he could not naturally know about people) and he greatly encouraged people in the Lord. I also had him get some words of knowledge for healing as well and we saw some individuals conditions healed instantly with out even praying! Sometimes it is good to demonstrate the gospel of Jesus Christ before preaching.

I ended up getting to share about a lifestyle of risk (John Wimber said faith is spelled "R-I-S-K") and encourage people to get radical for Jesus in sharing the Good News of the Kingdom of God. One of the wildest things was I spoke for well over 2 hours and people paid attention - that is a miracle for sure! I felt God's glory and the dunamis power of God flowing like waves. As I paused and waited on Him, He began to shake individuals throughout the room. He does shake everything that can be shaken - Ha Ha! People began to get drunk in the Spirit and laugh in His presence (Psalm 2:4 = He who sits in the heavens laughs, Psalm 16:11 = In Your presence is fullness of joy!) Yeah - Get some of that oil of joy on you right now too. Sho to to she be te. Jesus you are glorious! We don't have to make excuses for how good He is. JESUS!!

Keep drinking in His goodness!
The Lord began to involve the listeners as He told me there were two people there who had a word to share with someone else who had been prophesied over. He started showing where in the room conditions that He was healing were. The Lord was moving powerfully - I was so encouraged and found myself really drunk in the Spirit at times - take it!
The Lord did many great things including removing pains in the back and neck, growing out a leg (atleast one that I was around for) and I am sure other stuff as Giovanni went around and laid hands on people for an impartation of the gift of faith - something He carries dramatically. One time he drove on an empty tank for a couple of days on long trips because he believed God would provide. Papa always does! YEAH!!!

Older Testimonies from around February 2008!

I don't know how to post Testimonies from a few months ago so I figure I will add them here because they encourage me that God is better than we think!
Jesus wins once again! Over my vacation from Bethel's School of Supernatural Ministry, the Lord invaded my life on numerous occassions. It all started on my flight from Redding, CA back to Jupiter, FL to visit my mom. Before my flight, I decided to sit with the Lord and get some words of knowledge and supernatural insights about the flight. On a piece of paper I wrote what I felt was from God. Not knowing my seat assignment, the list included row 17 (17C to be exact) and arthritic pain in the hands. At the airport a young man starts talking to me. We chat through the boarding process, and he is seated right in front of me. I am in row 17! I ask him about arthritic pain in his hands, and he describes a condition he has that is supposed to paralyze him or worse over the next 10 years. It debilitates his spine and all of his joints. I told him that as I put my hand on his shoulder, he would feel the power of God in his body. He began to describe a fire like heat that was running throught his spine. Jesus saves the day again! I then proceeded to give the lad an encouraging (prophetic) word from the heart of God that drove him to the brink of tears. Since he already knew the Lord as his personal Savior, I was able to change his conceptions about what Papa God is like - previously he thought God had given him the condition. I told him that God is good, the devil is bad. Health is good, sickness is bad. Therefore it is obvious were the sickness comes from - Not our all loving Papa. The devil is the one who steals, kills, and destroys. Through this whole ordeal, the man next to me is just listening. I turn to him and begin to give him an encouraging word from God which changes his countenance. He is a real new ager, never been to church, never read a Bible. He says to me I have an amazing aura of light around me. He does not want to receive prayer, but he just had an encounter with the love of God. Back home in Jupiter, I took a couple of friends out on a treasure hunt (where we get words of knowledge, write them out, and go to the location God gives us to find them). Among our clues we had 7-11 and back spasms. At the local 7-11 (its about 1 o'clock in the morning at this time) I ask a man if he has back spasms. He looks at me wide eyed and says, "I had one yesterday." I told him God was going to heal him and offered prayer. He received and felt fire on his back. I then gave him an encouraging word about his financial situation. We then shifted our attention to the worker behind the counter. She was actually the wife of the man we prayed for. She did not know the Lord and ended up meeting Him that night having a born-again experience. Whoop Whoop - Jesus scores again! On New Years Eve I really wanted to go to a house party (of the worldly kind) to bring the Kingdom of God. I showed up more drunk than everyone there. The presence of the Lord started to invade. Some of the girls really wanted to do naked chicken fights in the pool which is always supported by the guys, however without me saying a word, the Holy Spirit put an end to that. These friends don't even know me as a religious freak or anything, so I knew there were no barriers to the invasion God had planned. I got to pray for one friend for a creative miracle in his knee that I have seen God do in the past. Being backslidden, I told him God was not mad at him but infact liked him alot. I then shifted my attention to another friend and gave him a word from the Father which touched his heart making him very emotional. Then I got to give sove dream interpretations to some kids who I felt dreamed alot. They were stunned by the accuracy and asked how I got such insights. I told them the Holy Spirit talks to me like we are talking now, and He came into my life when Jesus did. I gave a another dude a word he knew was from God because of a word of knowledge I had and slipped out because the host had passed out. The next night two of the kids from the party showed up at a house meeting. During worship, the Holy Spirit moved on one of the lads and took him to the floor laughing and crying in a big puddle of tears. He had never been around a meeting like this and had no paradigm for what was happening to him. A few minutes later he manifested a demon which got booted out by Holy Ghost power, and he received a mighty baptism in the Spirit. He is now part of the family of God at a house church which I serve at back in FL. Hallelujah!!! Another night, at a meeting I gave out a few words of knowledge for healing and broke the group up to pray and prophesy over eachother. I gave one woman a word about Jesus romancing her and bringing her back to when she was 18. While giving this word, she began to get glory dust or glitter all around her lips and on her neck. Holy Spirit confirmed the word with signs and wonders - ha ha! Another day I was going to a more family friendly party where God told me some pastors would be. One of them took me aside to ask about Bethel as he had seen it on TBN. He asked a question about why there and not in his backyard. God gave me a word of wisdom that kinda sidetracked his question but spoke to his spirit. He grabbed me and put me infront of some other leaders. I began to equip some of them in healing sharing testimonies and discussing the word of knowlege. When I shared some things about legs growing out, a woman said her leg was short. I told her husband to pray for it and told him that it would grow out. It did of course (maybe to his surpise). We then went after a few other healings as I called out a word of knowledge at the party (probably scaring some of the more conservative types). The prophetic annointing began to really flow and a couple of groups of people got words from Papa's heart leading to tears. One of the sweet highlights was a back healing where not only did the guy being prayed for got healed, but a man just standing to the side said he felt the power heal his back too even though he was not receiving prayer nor did he respond to a word of knowledge. Ha Ha - Jesus! Another day, I spoke at a church to some youth, they got touched as the annointing got really thick in the room as I shared stories of trips into heaven with Jesus. Then I got to pray for healing for a few people by the word of knowledge. After the meeting a friend and I went to Denny's. Sitting at the booth, I got a couple of insights into sicknesses in the room by words of knowledge. I decided to stand up and announce to the restaurant that God was there to heal and demonstrate His love and announced the different conditions. The annointing hit like a bomb. I invited people over for prayer. A little girl was the only person who responded but she was immeadiately healed. I watched as the other conditions walked past me on their way out trying to avoid eye contact with me. It was funny because the conditions that I called out including deafness and hip problems were all held by Christians, but something in their life kept them from comming over for prayer and a miracle. yikes! But I loved the fact that a little child was the one who entered the Kingdom. Lets never let our ego keep us from an invasion of God. All in all there were anywhere from 30-50 miracles over the trip home as well as many being equipped in the miraculous and prophetic. God is amazing and He wants to invade your life the same way right now. If you took the time to read this then you are getting an impartatin for the same things to happen to you! Jesus, I pray that you would surround my friend with your love. Increase your Kingdom in their midst. Grant them the desires of their heart as they abide in yours. Power Power Power. Firery Love of God flow. Increase your annointing even now, Papa. Bless You, Amen More recently, I took a trip with our family to minister in a church in Washington state. While there we saw radical miracles and salvations. We prayed for a family who did not believe in the Lord but the mom had a tumor the size of a softball in her belly which was going to take 90% of her stomach or worse as she was to be operated on later that week. We prayed and she began to feel her stomach go numb with heat when she had been at a pain level of 8 while on narcotics (she was a nurse). Hallelujah!While praying for her I got a word of knowledge for fluid problems in the inner ear as well as circulatory problems. A woman there had the ear problem. I saw an angel in the spirit right infront of her so I told her to take a step forward. When she did, the annointing hit her and her ear immeadiately drained with fluid. Hallelujah! The woman who had cancer's husband had the circulatory problem as well as back problems (from another word of knowledge). I began to prophesy over him and the Lord revealed the secrets of his heart. This 6' 6'' atleast football player was transformed as the annointing of God soaked his heart and body. I grabbed his hands and asked him to pray with me. I led him in a prayer of receiving forgiveness of sin and Jesus as his savior and Lord. He sobbed and could barely get the words out as the power of the enemy was loosed from his life. We then proceeded to prophesy over the various family members present. The next day they all came to church and commented on how their entire family had changed. Even their kids were respectful. JESUS!!!! During the morning service we probably gave out atleast 15 words of knowledge for healing. One word given was for deafness and the name Andy. Andy who wore two hearing aids came up for prayer. God took him out as I layed hands on him and commanded deafness to leave his body. He spent the next while on the floor. Another person who responded to deafness was also taken out by the power of God and wept with his wife on the floor. Another person responded to asthma was miraculously healed. James prayed for another who got two new knees from torn ACLs from high school football and got taken out by the power of God and caught up into a vision. He came back just weeping in Father's love. Another man got set free from a spirit of suicide screaming it out and weeping as I sang a prophetic song in his ear about Papa's love for him. Hallelujah Jesus! Later that night, our team all spoke and the Holy Spirit settled heavily on the congregation. The Lord told me to share on an encounter I had with His glory and then I preached on the cross, the power of His blood to eliminate sin, and the promise of the Holy Spirit offered to us. I had some words of knowledge but the Lord told me to just say "Lord, let your fire fall." I told the congregation that as the Holy Spirit began to move on the congregation, healings would simply occur in His glory and people would feel heat touch their bodies where they needed it. I then said Let Your Fire Fall Lord. I stood and waited in silence as the Lord swept over the congregation. These believers were "charismatic" believers but were not accustomed to what God was about to do. Some were trying to avoid what God was going to do, but to no avail. Suddenly a section of the audience burst into laughter. Many started to shake and sweat as fire fell. One heavy set young man began to bounce in his seat in a way that had to be God because frankly it is impossible to bounce like that when sitting or I don't know how you could. Many emotional and physical healings took place as the room erupted into laughter and weeping and uncontrollable sweating and shaking and everything. Frankly, it seemed like chaos for the natural mind, but from God's perspective all was in order just like on pentecost. Holy Spirit is so GOOD! The next day I went to hang out with some friends in Redding and they asked about the weekend of ministry. As I shared the testimony of God's fire, They began to get slammed by the fire of God. Ended up giving a few more words of knowledge and a few legs grew which were uneven from the other leg either from injury or just not growing right. I could keep going.... Jesus is so GOOD. To Him be all the glory!

Some thoughts about the Supernatural Nature of God

Jesus said, "Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand" or in other words. You better change the way you think and act because I brought my world with me. In heaven there is no hatred, no sickness, no addiction, no fear, no pain. Jesus said, "Our Father, who is in heaven, holy is Your Name, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, ON EARTH as it is in Heaven." Jesus welcomed us into relationship with the King of the Universe on the same level of intimacy as Him - "Our Father". One who was pure and blameless with no reason for displeasure from God was beaten, broken, marred, and shamed so that we could have the communion with God that HE deserved. Until recent I really did not understand the work of the cross and covenant. God made a covenant with Abraham making him the father of many nations. The covenant involved the splitting of various animals whose blood served as an agreement - kinda morbid. But when you understand that this meant do unto me likewise if I do not keep my end of the bargain you understand the symbolism of the act of sacrifice. All along, God knew He would have to provide Himself as payment of a broken covenant and in so doing make a new one welcoming people of broken soul to be made whole and of broken body to be made well. Jesus Christ crucified for our every error and ill - Resurected to demonstrate His dominion still. Ha Ha!

He came to destroy the works of the devil. He commissioned us to do the same. "As the Father sent me, so I send you." When we receive the gift of His sacrifice and trust in His resurection we begin a life abiding in Him. A new birth enabling us access to God in the same dimension that He had. He said signs and wonders would follow those who believe.

My eyes have been opened to the inheritance purchased for me.

If you need a miracle, a healing, a touch from God, His presence is near. Take a risk, touch the screen and He will touch you. He is healing your heart and pain is leaving your head. His goodness is near to the oppressed. He loves you!

Testimonies from recent trip to SoCAL

Last week I traveled to SoCal (my inheritance) for a graduation and a wedding. Here are a few things that happened.

During a layover in Atlanta, I asked the Lord where I should sit believing Him for an encounter. I sat down where He showed me and a girl came within a minute or two and sat right next to me. Usually people leave a seat or two so I knew something was about to happen. Since she was attractive I figured she would think I was hitting on her, but I didn't really care because I knew the Holy Spirit really wanted to hit on her with His love. I talked to her for a moment and then had a small vision. I asked her if she liked to oil paint. She was like, "that is crazy that you ask that." I told her God had shown me her doing an oil painting. She responded, "you are going to make me cry." I encouraged her a little more and then the Lord showed me more. I said, "When you were 12 I saw you go up to an altar call and commit your life to the Lord." She asked me, "Are you a psychic?" I said, "No, God knows everything about you and He just showed me something because He loves you." I had her hold out her hands and ask the Holy Spirit to fill her. She began to get drunk in the spirit laughing and fanning her face as the fire of God came over her. Jesus strikes again! She had an encounter with Papa's Love.

Later that week I was with a friend who leads a youth group in SoCal. We went on outreach at the Irvine Spectrum and he gave me two middle schoolers to chill with. Jordan (14) and Jacqueline (13, I hope I spelled it right) were radical revivalists. They ended up prophesying over different individuals and praying for healing. One woman had knee pain, ankle pain and swelling, and back pain leave as well as had a leg grow out infront of spectators as Jesus invaded her life.

The night before my friend's wedding, we were with him praying over him at a hotel. A group of middle eastern women watched us and the Lord told me to go pray for one of them. She told me that her son had just died. My heart broke for hers. But the Kingdom is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. Righteousness for sin, Peace for mental and soul trauma, and Joy for healing. She ended up receiving healing in her back through a word of knowledge. Then, I noticed my other buddies had jumped on the oppurtunity and were ministering to the other women around. The Lord told me to not have them simply recite a prayer but to simply love on them. After a little while I got to share about how Jesus Christ was more than a prophet (as they were Muslim), but the very Son of God. I shared about the atonement in a concise way and looked the one woman in the eye and told her, "Your sins are forgiven" She began to weep. We parted ways with a hug (not acceptable to their culture but Jesus breaks all cultural barriers). My friends ended up prophesying over the other women and I believe about 5 ailments were reported to be healed. Ha Ha!

Later in the week I was surfing at the Huntington Beach Pier. I love to surf with the Holy Ghost. When I came in I felt like a Jamba Juice (God gives me words of knowledge through food alot "Go to Jamba Juice"). Out front was a little latino woman in a wheelchair. God said he was going to give me great favor with her. I walked over and after some small talk asked if I could pray over her because I knew God wanted to heal her. She told me she had polio and pain throughout her body but invited me to pray. I put my hand on her shoulder and commanded the devil of infirmity to leave her in Jesus Christ's name (I think I just said "infirmity GO" but I want it to be clear that what she was suffering from was a devil). She felt heat and electricity all over her body and felt a shift. She said she had had many people pray for her but had never felt such a thing. She then wanted me to pray for her son for God's grace to come on his life. Her husband came then with their smoothies. I ended up getting to prophesy over him too and encourage him in Papa's Love. She got out of her wheelchair and started to walk around with a big smile, recognizing that spirit had left her body. She was elated and thanked me and praised Jesus for her healing!!!

Later that night, my friend was ministering in a church in SoCal and invited me to come along. His middle schoolers were the ministry team. After he preached for a bit about taking risks and shared some awesome testimonies, he released the kids to minister. They began to call out words such as, "God is healing deafness in the right ear," and, "the Lord wants to touch a woman named Sally (or something like that)." Those who responded ended up getting healed of back pain and a few had migrane headaches. They each received personal ministry as well.
I ended up getting a word about people there from Anaheim and multiple people responded (we were over an hour from Anaheim). The Lord gave me another word about a woman in her 30's that was being healed of diverticulitis (a kind of intestinal disorder, I only know the name). A woman responded and was said she felt the pain leave and got healed of a few other conditions through the word of knowledge. Then I got a word about bumps on someone's knees. This same woman leaped up, "my husband, my husband" She got him on the cell phone as he was not in the meeting, and I prayed over the phone and he felt the power of God and testified that he was healed! Jesus heals over the cell phone!!! Another woman got her friend on the phone who had terrible problems with the knees and was bound to a wheelchair. She got out of the wheelchair and walked around - NO PAIN!!! JESUS!!!! We are not sure how many people received healing and deliverance that night but we estimate around 40 or more. God is good!!!

More Testimonies...

Its been a while since a testimony update... I will try to rehearse all that has happened.

"I will also speak of Your testimonies before kings And shall not be ashamed" -Psalm 119:46

A little over a month ago I was hanging with a new friend munching some pizza. The Holy Spirit kept tickling me so I found myself laughing alot while my friend and I chowed down. When the waitress walked over I felt what I can describe as a crick in my neck. Recognizing this as a word of knowledge, I asked the woman if she had neck pain. She responded, "Yes, why do you ask?" I told her that God wanted to heal her right now of neck pain as well as scoliosis and grow out her short leg (the Holy Spirit showed me the rest through words of knowledge). I asked her how long her leg had been short. She said since high school she had known about it. I had her go announce to her co-workers to come out and watch the miracle that was about to happen. I had her sit in a chair and grabbed her legs. One was around 3/4 of an inch shorter than the other. I told her to watch because as soon as I invited the Lord to come and commanded the leg to grow it would... and it did! She became hysterical! I had her stand up and feel it out, the pain was gone and she felt the shift in her body! She began to yell, "Thank you, Jesus!" I had both of her and her co-worker pray with me, "Jesus, I know you died for my sins, and that you rose again for me. Be my Savior, my Healer, and my Deliverer, come into my heart, I make you Lord of my life, I renounce every spirit but the Holy Spirit, I command all other spirits to leave me now, Holy Spirit come and fill me-" with that her and her coworker began to get drunk in the Spirit. I was holding the one woman up as she swayed and stumbled in the Glory! They both kept saying thank you Jesus with huge grins on their faces as the Lord touched them with His LOVE. ISN'T PAPA GOOD!!!

A couple of days later I was at Denny's in Boca Raton, FL and the Lord had more planned than a simple late night snack. As my friend Chris Greener and I were getting out of the car we asked for some words of knowledge for people inside. Chris heard the name "Catherine" and I began to discern a problem with the neck. We went inside and I noticed the waitress was limping, I asked if I could pray for her and she said okay (maybe just to earn a better tip). She noticed a shift and pain had gone after I prayed a couple of times, but she was not completely healed which left me kinda mad at the devil (Acts 10:38, And you know of Jesus of Nazareth, whom God annointed with the Holy Spirit and power, who went about doing good, healing ALL who were oppressed BY THE DEVIL.). We sat down at our table with two other people we were meeting. The manager ended up comming over I guess noticing me pray for the waitress and talked for a moment with us and then asked if we could pray over his son and girlfriend who were about to go overseas with the military. We said of course.
When they came over I told them they were going to feel the love and power of God when we prayed - they kinda looked at us funny but said okay. The Spirit of God began to speak to me about the girl so I just began to prophesy over her a vision of her at prom (which made sense to her). The annointing of God's Spirit began to touch her and she began to shake and laugh uncontrolably. I described a blanket of God's presence I saw fall on her in the spirit and she said she could feel it all over her body! Ha Ha JESUS! Then I asked the young man if he had a problem with his knee (word of knowledge). He said yes, and I told him it was his left and that God had just healed him. I asked if he could feel it and he said yeah. I then started to tell them they could hear from God and do exactly what we were doing. I just told them to go off of whatever God's Spirit put in their imagination, like if they saw a police officer, just say that or ask for more. They freaked out more because the young man wanted to become a police officer and the example actually confirmed to him that it was the Lord! Ha Ha! The young girl then proceeded to give me an encouraging word about boldness.

God was not done yet... Another table next to us observed all this and a woman at it began to ask us to pray for her sister Catherine. There it was "Catherine". She then began to tell us how she had been in bed about four days a week since a car accident with severe "neck pain". I told her how God had showed us about all that before we came into the restaurant and that He was going to heal her now. I had her stand up and commanded the pain to go from the other table. She felt the pain leave her body and got hysterical (this tends to happen when miracles occur). Her son then complained of a pain in the wrist. Upon asking the Holy Spirit what was up with Him, He showed me areas of unforgiveness towards himself (condemnation) and fear. I told him to close his eyes and he began to have a vision of the Lord and the Holy Spirit showed him the areas of fear and condemnation. He renounced the lies and we commanded the associated spirits to leave and he got delivered right there in Denny's and began to sway and stumble under the Glory and prophesy. I then had the mom hold out her hands and I went and stood closer to her. The Holy Spirit came in power and took her out (I did not touch her except to catch her when she fell out there in Denny's). This caused a bit of a stir in the restaurant...

As the Spirit of God came over me more I began to preach to another table of teens who had witnessed the event. I yelled to their table explaining what God had just done as I approached them and asked if they had ever felt the presence of God before. One responded, "I don't know, maybe." I told him I was going to lay my hand on his shoulder and that God was going to touch him. As I did he began to get hysterical, "Dude, this is real, oh my God this is ---- real!" He grabed his buddy's hand accross the table as I began to speak about how God was going to restore his relationship with his dad and some other things the Spirit showed me. Fighting to hold back tears, He and his buddy received the Lord through an encounter with the goodness of God through His Glory. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!!!

Testimonies carry the grace for God to do it again - that is why you share your testimony of salvation from sin when you are believing for individuals to receive forgiveness through Christ's atonement. So take this grace and run with it! Father I pray that your tangible annointing would come and touch whoever reads this right NOW! Let your Glory come, Papa! TOUCH with FIRE! Sho to to tando se be te shaba KO! Ha HA! HEY!!!!

Quick One - Highlight Testimonies over the past two weeks

A friend (Josh Stevens) and I went to Spirit West Coast down in Del Mar, CA to find people for Jesus to heal. In two days we atleast a few dozen healed just walking around and calling out words of knowledge.

- One woman, in a wheelchair because of knee pain, had a leg shorter than the other since birth (she said). We commanded it to grow in Jesus name and ofcourse it did. She wept with joy as pain left her body and she pushed her wheelchair away. Yay God!

- Another woman in a wheelchair with a badly broken foot said she could feel all the bones go back in place and no pain anymore - Jesus strikes again.

-Another couple had a knee problem and a shoulder problem were healed by calling out a word of knowledge to them. I then heard God say over them, "renewal of marriage vows" I announced what I heard and the woman freaked out saying,"We just got back together today!"

-An MC of the event announced from stage that he was deaf in his left ear. We thought this odd but then realized it was so that Jesus could undeaf his hear. We walked backstage and told him Jesus sent us to him so he could hear again. Maybe he thought we were crazy but as we commanded his ear to open, the presence of God hit him and he went silent for about 25 seconds in the glory. He said that nodules in his throat were gone (which he had asked us to pray for) and his ear had opened up. Josh said, "Well lets test it out." He said he did not have to because he could hear! JESUS!!!!!

- At a gas station I saw a man limping from a stroke and I chased him down while my gas was pumping. After praying with him he could feel tingling on the paralyzed side - something he should not be able to do since he is supposed to be paralyzed. JESUS!!!

- God never stops why should we, anyway those are the highlights. Praise Jesus!!!

Big South Swell

Going to college in Southern California had its advantages. My favorite of which were the days in late spring and early fall when there were rumors about my surfer bros about a South Swell about to hit. South Swells come from storms thousands of miles away down by antartica. They are produced by powerful storms that develop by the upper level wind strengths of the roaring forties and fifties (latitudes). These large storms feed off of the wind energy above and when they make a slight turn to the north send large ocean swells all the way to the warm beaches of SoCal. These waves are not single in nature, they are events. Virtually undetectable to an ocean mariner because of their spread out wavelength, these swells hit the beach with power. Stretches of sand from La Jolla to Trestles to Newport Beach begin to suckout with macking sets of pure power.

Recently, I was in the grocery store shopping with my mom and in the course of about 30 minutes, we saw four people get healed. We were just trying to get groceries, but God has created a ground swell in my own life and the life of many others. One woman stood next to us in line at the bakery and was massaging her shoulder. I asked her what was wrong. She said she had had rotator cuff replacement on the other and she thought she needed a new rotater on this shoulder too. I told her that God was healing her now and said she needed to move her arm around. When she did she said she felt goose bumps and the pain had left. She responded, "I believe!" without any prompting. The Lord then highlighted a young woman and told me she had a migrane. I asked her if she had a headache. She said yes. I responded saying, "it just left." Her eyes went wide and she said it did. I told her Jesus loved her and just healed her. Tears began to well up in her eyes. It just kept on going from there.

When a Big South Swell is on the rise, at first there may not be much sign of it. There might be a couple of waves every hour. But there are always a few takers already in the water.
Papa God is sending a rumor in the spirit about how good He really is. Every bit of it is true. He is healing, saving, and delivering everywhere. He always has been. We are just starting to track the swell.

I have been asking God about how to move from seeing a few to seeing many touched by His love in the same time and place. Seeing an entire store overwhelmed by His love and power in an instant. That day at the Publix grocery store was amazing but it also only a few splashes of God's Kingdom. What would happen if a Big South Swell were to be brought into the grocery store. Water washing everywhere, people falling over sliding around...

The wind of the Holy Spirit is roaring and individuals are beginning to realize who they are in Christ Jesus. Large Swell making storms are being birthed and everywhere they go things cannot help but happening. The virbirations off of these storms are traveling thousands of miles to sneak up on unsuspecting individuals who are hungry for more, looking for any answer. The storms are multiplying and so are the swells.

I had the oppurtunity to speak to a small group of believers the other night - about 15 people. While I spoke, I had a couple of people stand up and give words of knowledge for healing. A word of knowledge is a supernatural insight into something a person could not naturally know - in this case certain medical problems of people in the room and beyond. These believers had never done this before, but now, here they were, announcing what God was doing and witnessing him heal people accross the room and even over a cell phone. Yes, a young boy was healed of asthma over a cell phone when his mom called him. (Jesus can do that - He can do anything!)

When one wave hits the beach it can be labled a fluke set. But when many waves slam the reefs and sand bars, we know a swell is in the water. Everbody takes notice. A swell of God's love is here. The saints of God are being equipped for the works of ministry (Eph 4) to walk in the love and power that Jesus Christ displayed while He walked the earth. We don't have to wait for what we already have.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand

I feel like I have taken a trip deep into a mysterious land far beyond wonder. It includes the amazement that Alice felt down the rabbit hole, but with a sense of my hand on destiny instead of being sunken in illusionment. At the same time, stories of fantasy could not capture the depth of experience in which I find myself captivated. It is almost like being behind the scenes of the filming of an epic. You know, like those movies that everyone talks about before they come out. Everyone wants to know what it is about - they need the inside scoop. I am in the movie and behind the scenes, all the while being friends with the Producer.

I have seen more miracles in the past year than many notice in a lifetime. Thousands. Many of them I have seen result through my own spoken words or through my hands.

God is real. He can prove it to you. Jesus is alive and well, and He is looking for you to change your mind.

He has something worth saying and worth being heard, and so do I.

I was at In-N-Out Burger the other day - preparing to feast on a double double. A few friends and I had just got out of school and I wanted to hang out. While filling up my little ketchup cups I noticed the woman next to me had hearing aids. I turned to her and shared how Jesus heals this all the time and He was about to do a miracle for her. She seemed somewhat disinterested but I pursued. I prayed with her and she thanked me and proceeded on her way. I wanted to see more and so did God. On my way out of the restaurant I began to walk toward her in her car and as I did, I felt a pain shoot down my spine. As she is pulling out of the lot, I knocked on her window and told her that the Lord had showed me she had pain shooting through her spine. She was somewhat shocked, but then let me talk more. I told her to take out her hearing aids because God was healing her deafness and her back. She felt some heat in her back, and upon removing her hearing aids found that she could hear the wind - Something she could not do before. Her back pain gone, we tested her ears out and to no surprise of God's, she could hear!

Miracles and Burgers - who would have thought. But this is reality. This is an invasion of truth into our culture. Jesus Christ of Nazareth said, "repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." (as quoted Matthew 4:17). Repent basically means go back to the top (think penthouse). Go back to God's perspective. In God's domain (the King's domain = kingdom), there is not sickness, disease, sin, poverty, hate, etc. He has invited us into that place through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of humanity - Jesus called Himself the way, the truth, and the life, as well as the Door.

The way to relationship with God is clear, the Door is open, and once you receive the finished work of Christ, by inviting Him into your heart, receiving forgiveness and turning away from the bondages of your life, God then lives in you and you in Him. From this point onward, you have been invited into the greatest adventure of time. You are called to be a conduit between heaven and earth. God's domain is to be manifested through you. You begin to exhibit a reality where the deaf hear, the blind see, the lame walk, and the dead are raised. This is normal life. A life of intimacy with the Almighty God who calls Himself your Father. A life of miracles. A life where you love freely and are loved freely.

Heaven is not far away... it is within reach... it is at hand!

There is more

Testimonies from recent trip to Israel:

Jesus is LORD!!! He is mighty to save! The greek word for saved, "sozo" means forgiven, set free from bondage, and healed. Jesus did all the above on a recent trip to Israel.
Walking down a street in Tel Aviv, one of our team members saw a homeless man on a mat begging for money. He had his hand wrapped in a bandage and it seemed to be crippled. Accross the language barrier our friend made a gesture like, "Can I pray for you?" The homeless man nodded. During the prayer, the homeless man got a strange look on his face. He began to open his hand with surprise. We told him the only hebrew we knew "Jeshua Ha Mashiach" Jesus is the Messiah. He began to shout Jeshua Ha Mashiach to people walking by and explain to them how his crippled hand just got healed. Numerous other people motioned to us to pray for them, all we knew to say was Jeshua Ha Mashiach, but a healing meeting broke out there on a busy street.
