27 Mar Supernatural Signs Follow Me

For the past few weeks, the Holy Spirit has challenged my heart to make Mark 16:20 my expectation for each and every time that I have the privilege to minister. "And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen." Mark 16:20 As I stand up to proclaim the Good News, I can know that I am working side-by-side with Jesus Christ and, through the power of the Holy Spirit, the message will be confirmed by attesting signs and wonders.  The signs that Jesus promised in March 16:17-18 should accompany or follow the preaching of the Word. Consider this thought taken from The Phenomena of Pentecost written back in 1931 by D.W. Kerr (an educator and the primary author of the Assemblies of God's Statement of Fundamental Truths). "The word "follow" is a peculiar word in Greek and means to follow so closely as never to be absent. The five signs followed the disciples in their ministry of the Word so closely that they were never absent. They were always present when they preached the Gospel with the power of the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven."  ~ D.W. Kerr That's my expectation. Make it yours!  ...

13 Mar Supernatural Healings – TODAY!

I am so excited about the day and age in which we live. I am convinced that God is up to something supernatural and we get to be a part of it. I wouldn't trade living today for any other time that witnessed an outpouring of God's Spirit. The move of God that is presently unfolding will far exceed anything in recorded history. It truly is the day of the Holy Ghost. Here is one exciting part of this outpouring - divine healing is being brought to the forefront. The perfunctory, ritualistic healing prayer found in of many of today's churches is being replaced with the Holy Spirit showcasing His miracle-working power through signs, wonders, and miracles. And here's the part that I love. This isn't being seen only in the adult services but also in the ministry to children and youth. And wait, there's more. These demonstrations of the Spirit aren't confined to a church service. They are happening in homes and businesses everywhere. Why is this important? Because, if this gospel is to be preached throughout the earth before the return of Jesus (Matthew 24:14), and, if His return is imminent, then demonstrations of healing are vital to hastening His return. Holy Spirit-produced, visible, undeniable healings have always been a vital part of the advancing of the gospel. We see this throughout Jesus' ministry. "Jesus traveled throughout Galilee teaching in the synagogues, preaching everywhere the Good News about the Kingdom. And he healed people who had every kind of sickness and disease. News about him spread far beyond the borders of Galilee so that the sick were soon coming to be healed from as far away as Syria. And whatever their illness and pain,  or if they were possessed by demons, or were epileptics, or were paralyzed — he healed them all. Large crowds followed him wherever he went ...
