When we lay hands on the sick to recover or lead a person into salvation, are we to feel a flow of divine power and see this power (or the Holy Spirit) entering them, or do we take it by faith? And what is the role of love in this entire process? Let’s see if we can answer these questions.
This testimony is from Eric Okell, pastor of the Divine Light Deliverance Ministry in Uganda.
What a scary concept, that religious leaders are not going to make it to heaven! Here is what Jesus said: "For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven" (Matt. 5:20).
Two things come to mind: 1) I don't want to be a Pharisee; 2) I don't want to be shepherded by a Pharisee.
I had the privilege of interviewing Joshua Mills last week to discuss his excellent new book, Creative Glory - Embracing the Realm of Divine Expression. His passion is to help Christians access the limitless creativity available to them through the Holy Spirit's anointing.
Joshua points out that our heavenly Father is introduced to us in Scripture initially as Creator. Genesis 1:1 tells us that, "In the beginning, God created...." Now God could have introduced Himself to us with any one of His hundreds of attributes, but creativity was the one chosen. While many of us know the Lord as Savior, Healer, and Deliverer, in this season He is inviting us to know Him more intimately as Creator, allowing His Spirit of Creativity to flow in our hearts and out through our lives, transforming every sphere of society.
As many of you know, I am fascinated by quantum physics and the spiritual ramifications those scientific principles have in our everyday lives. No matter the subject of a book I’m working on, I usually manage to turn the conversation towards this topic in at least one chapter! Now I’m very excited to be writing a new book that is entirely devoted to this area.
Our nation and world are reeling in deception and darkness. Lies are all around us: corrupt elections, corrupt politicians, corrupt news media, corrupt public education, a corrupt CDC, corrupt Supreme Court and governors, corrupt pastors who preach an unanointed church with no power to transform society and a powerful satan who will destroy society. Other atrocities include child sex trafficking, sexual perversion, drugs, hopelessness and pandemic fear. So is this the end? Should I despair? Absolutely NOT!!!
How miracles occur – Faith which casts mountains into the sea and brings forth a child at 100 years of age is conceived by a rhema and vision from God, which when incubated through pondering, speaking and acting, births a miracle in the fullness of time.
The testimony below is from Karin da Silva. A search for her name on this website will lead you to other blogs by Karin. Be encouraged. God is with us guiding and strengthening us in everything we walk through. That is why praise can continuously be on our lips.
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!
