South African Pastor Embraces 4 Keys and Sees Miraculous Growth - by Dr. Don Paprocky

Mark Virkler's picture

Pastor Patrick Chauke of the Glory Power Center (GPC) in the village of Magona, South Africa, has seen explosive growth in his ministry, which he credits to learning to live only by God’s voice and visions through journaling, by using the 4 Keys to Hearing God’s Voice.  Sunday service attendance at the GPC in Magona, a village of about 4000, consistently has an overflow crowd of over 750. (The average church size in South African villages is 50-100!)

Patrick has also seen hundreds of people come to Jesus almost monthly from regular evangelistic and healing outreaches in the regional villages.  This has included seeing many hundreds of people healed and delivered from satanic bondage.  A recent 9 day conference at the GPC had over 7700 in total attendance, with over 1300 people receiving or rededicating their lives to Christ!  The village of Magona for many decades was considered a hotbed for witchcraft and the occult and now has become Jesus’ light in the region!

Patrick has also planted churches in the region and is a regular conference speaker in various churches.

The GPC is part of Glory Power Ministries (GPM), a missions organization founded and led by myself and my wife, Myrna.  I am a graduate of CLU and work closely with Dr. Mark Virkler, helping in teaching seminars, counseling and more.  Patrick, along with other GPM pastors, was first taught the 4 Keys at a seminar in South Africa in 2014.  I have continually emphasized to the GPM pastors over the years to live only by God’s voice and visions through the 4 Keys, and to journal about everything.  They have embraced these teachings, and Patrick, as the lead GPM pastor in South Africa, has especially seen tremendous fruit. 

Patrick says that journaling has encouraged and blessed him greatly over the years, including seeing God’s early prophecies that He spoke to Patrick come true:

Patrick and his wife

“Actually, when I journal, the Lord would tell me that He would bless me in Glory Power Ministries if I would obey His voice and do His will. He will bless me, and I will not suffer financially. And He told me He would give me a house, and don’t worry about the house now, you must do My will, and be faithful in Me. Listen to My voice, and I will give you a car and give you a house. You won’t be struggling anymore if you just do My will. When I would journal, He would always talk to me like this. We were without a house, and without a car, and without money, and my salary was very low.  It was very difficult.

“Sometimes the Lord will tell me in a dream and would talk to me in a dream like that, and in journaling. So, after these things happened, I am driving and now I have a car, and I have a house – I am not struggling now. It is going well now because I listen to God in the journaling.

“In the past, the Lord told me that the church would grow very big. I was suffering before in a small church (that was not growing), and the Lord told me that you will have a very big church. I will raise you up. You will have a very big church. At Magona, you will be a leader of pastors. You will make a lot of pastors. In South Africa, in our province of Limpopo, you will have many churches. God said, ‘I told you to serve in Glory Power Ministries to make leaders.’ And all this is happening now. At that time, it was not easy. There were no pastors at that time when He told me all of this. I was alone.

“I was alone, but the Lord told me we will make many pastors and have many churches. And now that has happened. We have a church in Magona. We have a church at BLOCK D. We have a church at Phaweni and more. The Lord said, we will have many churches, and we have churches now. My journaling, I was listening to the voice of God, and He was telling me these things.

“Before I prepare my messages, I pray first. Then I journal before the Lord. I ask Him, ‘what do you want me to teach’ in the service or in this crusade, or in the home cell group? So, I journal, and the Lord guides me which passage to teach or preach on. So, I pray, and then I journal, and the Lord will talk to me. He will say something like, ‘you need to teach people about love,’ or, ‘you need to teach people about faith,’ or, ‘you must teach people about curses.’ Then, I will look up verses on curses or love or faith.

“And the people respond very well to the teaching, because I am depending on the voice of God. People are listening more to my messages when I teach, since I learned how to hear the voice of God. Years ago, my teaching was poor, but now, people are responding. They tell me that I am a father, a teacher. It is giving me power, especially when people encourage me that they are blessed from my message.”

Patrick continues about how journaling has helped him:

Don teaching the 4 keys

“In my personal life and my family, God told me that He will bless me with a business to take care of my family and my children.  In my family, we journal always, with my wife. It is easy for us in our family. We give thanks to you, dad [Dr. Don]. Now, when we hear the voice of God, we don’t rush like we used to. Before, when I would rush in my decisions, I would make big mistakes. But now, you taught me not to rush after I hear the voice of God. It is really helping me.

“I give thanks so much to Dr. Mark and to you, Dad, because you gave us this teaching when it comes to journaling. Because I used to journal, but not like this. Once you started teaching us how to journal, now we know much more, because we journal about everything. Everything we do, we first journal. It is helping me a lot. Before learning the 4 Keys, we would ignore God’s voice, but now, we don’t ignore His voice at all. We thank you so much, because now we don’t struggle. If I hear the voice of God, it is easy for me to walk with God.

“I journal every day! Journaling is my life!”

It gives a father great joy, albeit it a spiritual father, to see his children receive his teachings and produce godly, eternal fruit.  Thank You, Jesus!

Have you ever wished you could just sit down and have a long talk with the Lord?

Twelve Weeks to Spiritual Mastery - Group Coaching

A group coaching experience with Mark Virkler

Because I could not find a Spirit-anointed teacher/coach, I spent ten extremely frustrating years seeking to hear God’s voice!!! Suggestions offered did not help me, things like: “You just know that you know. It is a still small voice. He speaks from your heart.” No one could give me the answer I needed which was: Hearing God’s voice is as simple as quieting yourself down, fixing your eyes on Jesus, recognizing His voice as spontaneous, flowing thoughts and writing down His flow as it is coming. Test what you have written after the flow is done, NOT while it is occurring.

Counseled by God

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 146 Pages

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?
