1Why we need a fresh baptism of God’s fire for holiness 2) Healing video testimony, and healing prayer room update

October 20, 2013

1) There are a number of important prophetic voices that have confirmed that we are coming into a season where God is pouring out a fresh baptism of God’s fire for holiness to His bride. This includes Bob Jones and Patricia King to name but two. We should not run away from this, but embrace it wholeheartedly. This fire will ultimately consume sickness and disease and demonstrate Jesus to the lost. According to Bob and Bonnie Jones it will be “far greater than Pentecost and more powerful than Azusa Street of recent times.” The emphasis will be holiness, healing, and harvest. Let’s explore holiness briefly.

It is impossible to be holy without being born again, and without holiness no one will see The Lord (Hebrews 12: 14) . We cannot strive to be holy of course. When we become a new creation in Christ old things pass away, and all things become new, most importantly our spirit man. Our spirits get perfected, consequently we have access into the very presence of The Father because of the blood sacrifice of Jesus.  Does this mean that God stops working on our hearts, and we have no problems in the realm of the soul. No, far from it! Because Holy Spirit has come into our hearts, He is working on our souls to be become increasingly more like Jesus, and to the degree we co-operate with Him, this process can be accelerated before our lives here are over. As a result we can enter into that joyful union that He desires for each one of us:

“That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.” John 17 : 21 (King James Version)

Note the last part of the verse, “that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.” The world wants to see something real that they are hungering for deep down. They must see nothing less than Christ in us and through us! Our union with the Lord is a glorious end in itself of course. In fact there is an awesome promise attached for those whose hearts have been purified by Him in that we will see Him (Matthew 5 : 8) and when our hearts are pure, with no mixed motives, we desire to live in the Spirit which results in obedience, and another wonderful promise that He will manifest Himself to us :

“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.” John 14 : 21 (King James Version)

So we need a fresh baptism of God’s fire for holiness to be more intimate with Him. Ministering to Him must always come first because this is what we were created for. When ministering to those who do not yet know Him, we need it so that our flesh doesn’t rise up, and we can be laid down vessels of His love, glory and power so He brings a great harvest of souls into His Kingdom for eternity. Will this baptism challenge us? It does far more than that! It takes away our pride, and all in us that must be put to death!

It must never be forgotten that character is more important than gifting. People will tend to judge the external, but God is always looking at the heart (1 Samuel 16 : 7) We are transitioning into a greater works generation where God will show Himself strong on behalf of those who are devoted to Him wholeheartedly (2 Chronicles 16 : 9) , and those who intimately know God will be strong in the face of difficulty and do great exploits in His name (Daniel 11 : 32 ) which are of course His works manifested through us. Let’s allow God to get rid of everything in our lives that would quench The Spirit therefore. There is too much at stake eternally not to!

2) a) Cheltenham street healing

I had a great time seeing God’s love and power touch people today in Cheltenham England. There were healings, including legs backs and feet of people that received the healing power of Jesus Christ as pain left bodies such as for this man who shares what God did:

b) Stratford-upon-avon Healing Prayer Room Update

We are holding regular healing prayer rooms in Stratford-upon-avon with God releasing physical, emotional and spiritual healing to people coming. In recent months we have seen people accepting Christ as pain has left bodies. Most recently a young man who had received prayer for shingles on his face confirmed that a few hours after prayer the scabs started falling off. God’s power touched him and healed him! His face looks transformed.

God’s manifest presence has come revealing His reality and love, and now we are discipling people recognizing the importance not just of our mandate of Matthew 10 : 8 to heal the sick but Matthew 28 : 19 to “go and make disciples of all nations.” As discussed in an earlier article in this blog it’s vital that we make disciples and not just converts. This comes through love, relationship, trust, and a sound biblical foundation to all that we are imparting to people. It is time to harvest the harvesters! We want to reach people for Christ who in turn will reach others, and we will see His Kingdom expand gloriously! God is looking for co-labourers to the harvest. He is looking for you!

Testimony of miracle healing, more miracle healing, and salvations!

July 10, 2008

I went into town today to share the love and power of Jesus Christ. It was a bit rainy, but I wasn’t going to be discouraged! It had been nearly a week since I had ministered in town, and having watched the God Channel and Todd Bentley’s excellent teaching, I was impressed that it’s easy to let things slide and even loose the sharpness if you don’t continue to press in by sharing His love and miracle working power with people in need of His touch. I’ve been going through a difficult time lately, but God has been really encouraging me to continue to minister in town.
It turned out to be an excellent day, and I give God all the glory for that. My first contact was with John, a man who had been tangibly healed in town of arthritis in his upper body (see blog entry of May 15th 2008). He testified that he has been fine since! This encouraged me because people can lose their healings if they doubt or they don’t give Jesus the glory. He told me he did have arthritis in his knees though, so I prayed and The Lord touched him. He felt heat, and the pain left him. Again, he could do something he couldn’t do before without feeling pain. See this:

I then happened to meet a 72 year old lady Dorothy who I found out was staying here for a week for our outpouring meetings here at our church. She was encouraged to go off and witness to people, and she personally lead 3 people to Jesus Christ!
I then saw a teenage young man with a hearing aid, and felt lead to talk to him. I asked him if he wanted prayer. He did want prayer, so I laid my hands on his ears and commanded deafness to leave him. I got some prayer support from Dorothy also. I checked his hearing before the prayer, and it was poor. In fact he had been like that ever since the age of four. He took his hearing aid off before prayer, and told me he hadn’t brought his other hearing aid which he needed because of pain in that ear.
He told me he felt the power of God, and his hearing improved. I prayed again for the fire of God to touch him. Again he felt God, and his hearing was getting better and better! I even stood a distance away, covered my mouth with my hand so he couldn’t lipread, and he could hear me. Not only that but he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour. I encouraged him to go to our church. Please pray that he does!
This is what this outpouring is all about, this revival that started in Lakeland, Florida, taking the fire of God outside the church and through the love of Jesus Christ, and the demonstration of The Spirit’s power seeing the lost come home. It’s all about Jesus. As I said in my video, I want people to focus on Jesus. I’m just an individual with no platform ministry, there is nothing any more special about me than anyone else in the body of Christ. God wants to encourage Christians to go out and share Jesus , pray for the sick, and expect to see Him move in people’s lives for His glory. If I can do it, anyone can! If you are not a Christian, and you’ve seen enough to show you that He is real, then why not get right with God now. Jesus paid the price for your sins by dying on a cross so that you will not be judged and have to face eternal separation from God in Hell. Give your life to Jesus Christ, and repent from your sins. Then find a good church to go to, read your bible, pray everyday, and step into the destiny that God has for your life.

Dudley healing testimony through street ministry

June 20, 2008

I ministered in the streets very briefly today, and prayed for a couple of people who needed physical healing. One woman, a Christian who had suffered from a number of conditions felt definite improvement today.

I attended the evening meeting Day 54 of The Dudley Outpouring at Revival Fires Church and ministered in the chatroom. Tonight there were many miracle healings. One lady testified that her knee was healed, black spots (“floaters”) impairing her eye were fading so she could see better! Another lady testified of feeling fire and lumps on her leg were getting smaller, IBS was healed, and varicose veins were disappearing! One person got born again, and two rededicated their life to Christ on the internet, and there were commitments in the meeting too! If you haven’t come down to one of our daily evening meetings yet to receive a healing anointing impartation, or need a miracle in your body, then don’t delay, come get some in Dudley! See revivalfires.org.uk for more details, including some powerful miracle testimonies.

Hindu lady gets healed and saved in Dudley

June 18, 2008

I was encouraged last Sunday by the appearance at our morning meeting of a man who I had ministered to on the streets with my friend Simon some weeks ago. He told me he wanted to join our church family.
Today Wednesday 18th June I went into Dudley town centre. A man came up to me who I had prayed for on the streets some weeks ago testifying that he was totally healed of psoriasis. When I had prayed for him I could see the evidence of the condition on his head and he had been irritated with it for some time. Now it has clearly gone! He was telling people about what I do and Revival Fires Church and told me that he appreciates the work we are doing. He is a believer, and above all else I hope he appreciates what The Lord has done for him because it is all about what He is doing in our lives. To Jesus be all the praise and glory!
I got chatting with an elderly Hindu lady and her daughter. I prayed for her to be healed of arthritis which she was suffering from in her legs and back. I prayed the fire of God would touch her and the pain left her. She testified to feeling warmth when I prayed for her, and even started shaking under the power of God. She also walked without the use of her crutch! See her and her daughter share the testimony of this healing:

The lady who was healed accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Saviour. They offered me money, but I refused as I always do. I invited them to come to the church and gave them some literature to help her in her new walk with Christ. My prayer is that the daughter will get saved too, in fact why not the whole family! God is touching people of different faiths with the demonstration of His love and power. More people are finding out about what is happening on the streets, and in the Outpouring meetings in our church which have now reached Day 53 of consecutive meetings.

Dudley miracle outpouring hits Hindu family in Dudley town centre!

June 11, 2008

Yesterday, June 10th I went out onto the streets of Dudley with my wife Sasha and one of the students on the school of the supernatural here in Revival Fires Church Dudley our home church.We saw a small group of people we assumed to be a family the youngest of which was a girl who was barely able to walk, and using a crutch. I asked her and her mother if she would like prayer. They said that although they were of the Hindu faith they were open to us praying. As we prayed, she felt the heat and tingling of God’s power touch her ankle. The pain left her, and she was able to freely walk, even run! As a result of the demonstration of The Spirit’s power, she gave her life to Jesus! See this wonderful testimony:


To God be all the glory for another instant miracle healing on the streets of Dudley. Not only that but we prayed for one of their friends, a Hindu man and God took away his arthritic pain, and we are in faith that he is healed of arthritis. He accepted Jesus as Lord and Saviour. The girl’s sister also received physical healing as my wife prayed for her for a personal female condition. A group of muslim young men saw that these people had clearly been miraculously touched by God, and it opened their hearts to the reality of Jesus Christ. We had limited time, but I was able to have a meaningful conversation with one of them.
June 10th was Day 45 of the Dudley outpouring, and the fires of revival that touched Lakeland Florida in early April are here in Dudley, and the UK is surely on the brink of stepping into a glorious revival!

Dudley miracles in marketplace with young people

June 7, 2008

Today June 7th was very memorable, and to God be all the glory for what I share! I went out onto the streets of Dudley well supported by a long standing friend from Cheltenham Jesse. I prayed for an elderly man for his hearing. He had had hearing problems since activity in World War 2. God healed his ears and he testified to the improved hearing. A group of people started to gather as this miracle was occuring, mainly young men. After I led the elderly man to Christ, Jesse led me to inside the Dudley marketplace stalls, and I met one of the young men who had seen the miracle. He wanted to be free of an addiction, and also had suffered a long term painful ankle condition. I felt the Lord wanted me to minister healing to his ankle first. I did so as Jesse prayed with me, he felt heat on his ankle, then the clicking and pain left him! Not only that but people around the stalls witnessed this, including his friend who captured the whole thing on the camcorder of his mobile phone!
After his ankle was healed he gave his life to Jesus, and encouraged his friend to get some prayer. I prayed and prophecied over this other young man, and he felt God’s tangible presence. As a result he also gave his life to The Lord. Other friends and people looked on as God was moving. Another of his friends looked on and admitted about the reality of Jesus being real. He said “now I have the proof.” People are tired of religion, but hungry for the supernatural and will often look in the wrong places. They want to see evidence Jesus is real. Here the first young man testifies of the miracle healing of his ankle:

Later today I met the young man who I had prayed for last week and was miraculously healed of his leg injury. He was running! He shared with me that he had had no problems with his leg since I had prayed. Praise God for His goodness!
The Dudley outpouring continues in my church Revival Fires with awesome miracle healings. It is now in its 42nd consecutive day of meetings! Praise God that Jesus is visiting the streets and marketplace of Dudley as well! What a privilege to have a ringside seat to what He is doing at the moment. The signs wonders and miracles point to Him, it is all about Him, His Lordship, His glory, His Kingdom, and His desire to have an intimate relationship with each one of us. If you don’t know Jesus as Lord and Saviour give Him your life now, and if you do, take a risk for Him and share His love and power with those who don’t know Him.

Dudley street evangelism with miracles May 31st 2008

May 31, 2008

Today was another day to rejoice in the healing and saving power of Jesus Christ on the streets of Dudley, and in particular to rejoice in our glorious and wonderful Lord! I prayed for a man who had suffered spondilitis since 1997. He felt God’s power touch him, and was able to do something he couldn’t before I prayed. He accepted Jesus Christ as a result of the demonstration of the Spirit’s power. See his testimony: I subsequently prayed for a lady who had been unable to bend her foot properly for over five years. I asked her to try before I prayed for her so I could so what change if any would take place after I prayed. The transformation was miraculous! She accepted Jesus as Lord and Saviour. Here she shares her testimony of what The Lord did for her: ( correction to date of these miracles: May 31st 2008 )
I subsequently prayed for a man with partial deafness and he testified to improvement in his hearing. Praise God!
