I have waited for this book to be written for many years. One statement I love in this book, which also expresses the main theme of the book, is that "to fulfill the Lord’s commission to disciple nations, people have to see wonders, miracles, deliverance, healings and even experience the resurrection of the dead through the power of the Holy Spirit.”
This is the form of ministry and evangelism Jesus practiced. Jesus ministered a compassionate, loving, healing touch to all He encountered. The Church today must do the same. This book will help you minister and evangelize in the same manner as Jesus.
Dr. Raynold Milfort has received his doctorate from Christian Leadership University. I was proud to write the above endorsement for his book, Anointed Discipleship. THIS is what will fulfill the Great Commission.
I pray you are experiencing God’s supernatural love and power during this most holy of weeks. We know the same Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in us and gives life to our bodies (Rom. 8:11). We also know Jesus commissioned us to not only preach the gospel of the Kingdom, but to demonstrate it by healing the sick and raising the dead (Matt. 10:7-8). I want to share a testimony we received this week from one of our partner pastors who is doing just that!
Ancient wisdom and cutting-edge science both reveal that observation causes transformation. We know that as we gaze upon Jesus we are transformed into His glorious image (2 Cor. 3:18). We have also explored how quantum physics correlates with our walk in the Spirit. We learned about the “Observer Effect” and that a simple understanding of this principle states that when we observe something, we change it. Just our very act of looking at something affects it.
What would you do if you had been struggling with excruciating pain and no one could figure out why? You’d seen pastors and counselors and been prayed for. You’d seen doctors and specialists and been tested. All the results kept coming back normal, but you could no longer even go to work because of the debilitating pain in your body?
Well, if you’re Brian McLaughlin, you would tell your doctor you believed God was going to give her a dream in the night, and then she would know what to do!
When I was asked in a seminar this week how I defined “anointing,” I was astounded that I couldn’t answer the question with a precise, clear definition. So I admitted that I couldn’t adequately answer the question, and decided on the spot that I would explore Scripture and get a simple, practical, working definition of what it means to “be anointed.” On reflection, I realize that some believe the anointing is shaking or falling down or roaring or shouting. These may all be responses to the anointing, but what exactly is the anointing?

Last summer as we were moving furniture, I felt my lower back go out of place. I fell to the floor crying out, “My back, my back.” As I lay there I prayed, “Lord Jesus, please lay Your hands on my back and heal it.” In a little bit I was able to get up and move about with discomfort but not intense pain. Then every day I noticed less discomfort and more flexibility.
Yes, the world has been shut down by a virus. Everyone is affected. Everyone feels the hurt and the pain. One wonderful thought that comes to me, that I learned probably 40 years ago, is in the quote below...
