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!!!!
