Raised from the dead! Testimony from The Dudley Outpouring

September 7, 2008

In this post you can view an awesome video of a man sharing how God used him to raise someone from the dead!

Last night September 6th I attended the Dudley outpouring and God visited us in an awesome way again. One of the most remarkable events occured when one man who has regularly attended the outpouring shared something amazing that happened within the last two weeks. God used him to raise someone from the dead here in the UK! See this:

My pastor Trevor Baker also announced that the upcoming Firestorm conference here at Revival Fires Church Dudley with Kevin Prosch, Keith Miller, Mark Stibbe and Ken Gott scheduled for September 18th-23rd has interested GOD TV, and currently they are planning to televise it. On our church website he says “God TV have also asked to carry the FireStorm gathering by broadcasting it LIVE each day. This will have an impact beyond anything we have known for the Outpouring in the UK.” For more information about the conference see revivalfires.org.uk God is moving powerfully in the UK, and revival has been prophecied to hit our nation this year!

You may recall that in an earlier post I’d said that I would discuss my wife Sasha’s experiences of being raised from clinical death having visited Heaven and Hell a few years ago. Although you can expect more on this subject, there’s a link to visit that offers an initial summary of her experiences in her own words here

Lakeland and Dudley outpouring : meetings continue as God’s glory touches lives

September 4, 2008

Many people are asking about whether God is still moving in Lakeland, Dudley, and elsewhere around the world. The answer is unequivocally yes. While people are still hungry it is apparent that the ark of His presence will continue to touch people physically and spiritually. Incidences of gold and precious jewels turning up in meetings as signs and wonders are occuring to accompany the healing miracles and salvations. What is clear at the moment is that there is an emphasis on refining fire and holiness as the cloud of God’s glory increases. There are biblical examples of this. I want to recommend an article I found on the internet posted on August 17th by Donna Diorio posted at Francis Frangipane’s website entitled “Where Do We Go From Here? To Greater Measures of the Glory” at http://www.frangipane.org The article is both sobering and inspiring.

Live webcasts of the Lakeland and Dudley meetings continue with details of speakers and upcoming conferences available too at the respective websites of Revival Fires and Ignited Churches. Go to http://www.ignitedchurch.com and http://www.revivalfires.org.uk for more details. It comes down to this, there are no limits to how much of God people can continue to experience and enjoy, but it is vital not to focus on the ministers with all their earthly and fleshly limitations, but on The Lord. It is Him alone that can truly transform us.

Miracle healing of Jesus , boy walks free of crutches and pain after trampolining accident!

August 23, 2008

Today the weather was better, and I went out on a twofold mission into town. 1) to share the full gospel of Jesus with a demonstration of The Spirit’s power and 2) to come back with some sweets for my children.

What really helped was that I told my kids that if I reached someone quickly and God intervened, that I would be back home quicker. This encouraged my children to pray for my swift return! I didn’t need long before The Lord gave me a divine appointment. Sometimes it can take a while before I meet someone open to prayer, but today God made it effortless.

I met a woman with her two sons, one of whom was walking slowly with the use of crutches. I approached them and asked them what the matter with him was. He had had a trampoling accident that had broken at least one bone in his foot causing him to need an X-ray which confirmed the break, and qualified him for some crutches. He confirmed he was in pain. His mother and he himself were happy for me to pray for him. As I did so, he felt heat on the affected area in his foot, and the pain left him. Glory to Jesus! Not only that, but I explained the gospel to him after he walked without the use of his crutches, and he gave his life to Jesus Christ. I believe that it will be a day he won’t forget. Please pray for this boy and his family, and see this exciting video testimony:

Miracles point to the veracity of Jesus, they give glory to Him, and they show how much He loves us all. I want to see the body of Christ run with the baton of healing anointing and revival fire that God has graciously given to us. Yes we can all move in miracles if we know Jesus providing we are prepared to step out in faith and take a risk.

I also want to emphasise again that The Dudley outpouring and Lakeland revival are far from over, but the end time world revival that The Lord wants to bring is bigger than any one person and one place. God is taking His church through a season of refining, drawing us to live uncompromising lives rooted and grounded in the purity of His Word. He wants to draw us into deeper relationship with Him, and remove anything that would be an obstacle for Him to work through us fully. As we pursue intimacy with Him, so we must pursue holiness and righteousness. However, even as the body of Christ might be taking a step back from using the fresh anointing and fire given to us for ministry, we should not neglect the harvest of lost souls. The eternal destiny of many is at stake.

Miracle healing of arthritis in Dudley England

August 20, 2008

1) Report 2) Video testimony of miracle healing in Dudley 3) Comment

1) Today I was expecting The Lord to do wonderful things in town, and He didn’t disappoint me! During my prayer time, God had laid on my heart what Jesus Himself had prayed in John 17 verse 18: “As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.” When Jesus commissioned the disciples in John 20 he said in verse 21 “Peace to you. As The Father has sent Me, I also send you.” What an amazing revelation and promise! This is available for each of us so we can show people how real Jesus is. Look at John 14 verse 12: “Most assuredly I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.” The ultimate purpose for this Jesus states in verse 13: “that The Father may be glorified in The Son.”
Today I prayed for a man who had recently converted to the Mormon church. He was suffering from psoriasis, and chronic eczema. As I have been healed of eczema many years ago after a word of knowledge from Benny Hinn I always pray with confidence when I pray for someone with skin conditions. As I prayed laying my hands on his hands he felt heat on his legs and told me he also had the condition on his legs which I hadn’t known before. My prayer is that he would discover the true Jesus of the Bible, and not the deception of Mormonism. I prayed for a lady with high blood pressure and a hip problem. After I had done this, a couple approached me asking if I could help them. They had seen me pray for the other lady. This encouraged me because I had prayed for people to approach me and also it meant they must have some faith too to believe for miracles. I could see that the lady was in much pain. She had been suffering with arthritis, particularly in her left leg. I asked her to bend her leg. She could hardly bend it at all without pain. I prayed for her, and the pain left her completely as she felt “the presence of someone else” touch her, and freedom of movement returned! She was amazed as she told her husband how the pain had gone! They both got born again as well praying the prayer of salvation, removing doubt about where they will go when they die. The lady shares her miracle here. See this:

3) The move of God’s Spirit that started in Lakeland Florida and has come here to England and other parts of the world seems to show no signs of stopping. In fact, revival is coming to the UK, and clearly healings, signs, wonders, and miracles will be an important part of it. I want to take time to personally honour my pastor Trevor Baker for his input into my life, and also Todd Bentley of Fresh Fire Ministries who came here while I was on The School of the Supernatural in October 2007, and who God has used so mightily in this current revival. The wonderful thing about the worldwide outpouring and revival is that it is not about any one individual though, but The Lord Jesus Christ building His Kingdom through the body of Christ. Today I watched The Olympics where the Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt broke the 200m world record by running to gold in a time of 19.3 seconds. He had previously won gold in the 100m breaking the world record but what was interesting about this race was that he was focused on the winning line, did not look to the left and the right to his other competitors, and ran flat out to achieve the record. In the same way we are called to surrender everything to Jesus, and as Paul says in 1 Corinthians 9 verse 24: “Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.” Does that involve pointing the finger at others? No, we must “press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3 verse 14)

God touches man with arthritis in Dudley

August 19, 2008

I went out into Dudley town centre briefly today, and met a couple who were on holiday for a short time here in the West Midlands. They actually live near the coast in a beautiful part of Wales, The Gower Pensinsula, a place I’d be very happy to go on holiday which in fact I did at the time of my wife and my fifth wedding anniversary five years ago! It turned out that the man had been suffering for some time with a number of physical ailments, including a hiatus hernia, a heart condition, and arthritis in his legs. It isn’t always easy to ascertain whether certain conditions have been healed, but he testified to feeling the power of God, the pain diminishing, and more. See this:

As I haven’t been available to go out on the streets for a while now, this was an encouragement to me. Also, I believe that God gave me a word of knowledge as I called out that the man had been part of a ramblers group. He confirmed this, and this encouraged us to believe that he would soon return to this major interest of his.
The Lakeland revival has undoubtedly focused on miracle healings, and the potential for the whole body of Christ to move like the early church in the book of Acts to spread the gospel through a supernatural demonstration. This is not a time for the church to back away but to press in to our mandate, revealing the love and power of Jesus Christ to everyone within our sphere of influence whatever that may be. If you’ve been reading this blog and just need the opportunities and the boldness to pray for people then let me pray for you now:
“Father let the person reading this now receive a fresh impartation of Your Spirit to share Your love and power with the lost and those who need Your touch. Let them have divine appointments, and the faith and boldness rooted in love to see people’s lives transformed by You for Your glory in Jesus name Amen.”
Let me know how you get on as you share Christ. My email is steelsfirm@aol.com
God bless you.

Florida healing outpouring revival is for global evangelism

August 16, 2008

Many people are asking whether the outpouring that has hit Florida will continue. The short answer is yes because just as it broke out in Ignited Church Lakeland in early April 2008 so it will continue there, and continue to go around the world. It is important to remember that this has been a sovereign move of God, and not about any one person. It’s not about Todd Bentley, Pastor Stephen Strader or anyone else but about the Lord Jesus Christ visiting the body of Christ, equipping the saints to build His Kingdom through them, and to Him alone be all the glory. In my opinion, there has been too much emphasis placed upon the vessels of His presence and power, and not enough on the author of all creation, God Himself. When that happens, there can be adverse consequences. History has shown that.
However, as people press in to God, seek His face, and don’t get distracted by people and events, then I believe He will continue to pour out His Spirit sovereignly, and we will see His love and power heal, deliver, and save the lost. Let’s focus on The Lord, and the great end time mandate, evangelism for global harvest.
After a short holiday in Cornwall, my wife fell ill with suspected meningitis, and was taken to hospital. She may not have had meningitis, but she is much better now. It has not been an easy few weeks, but I recognise that God is still in the process of allowing His body to go through some trials to refine them, and I have not been exempt from that myself. We should be excited though, about the greater glory of God’s presence coming to the church, and the increase in signs, wonders and miracles to reach the lost. We must press in to see full scale revival. I have felt the need to spend more time with my family, and more time with God in the secret place. I don’t want to get too busy “doing God’s work” because when that happens we can lose intimacy, fire and passion and get physically and spiritually tired.
I have had a few divine appointments, and seen God’s power touch people though. One young man felt God touch his broken leg, started walking without his crutch and believed he was enjoying a healing. I shared the gospel with him more fully, inviting him to give his life to Jesus. He told me that that didn’t fit in with his life plans as a 16 year old, and sadly at that point he said the leg condition came back, although he hadn’t been in pain previously, just restriction of movement, so without him walking I’m not sure how he could have sensed that it had come back. What I do believe is that when we see people healed and share the gospel it is down to the individual to make their choice, and yes, people can lose their healing, particularly if they don’t give glory to Jesus.

One on occasion when I was visiting my wife in hospital, I saw a young man who I had ministered to previously come out of hospital with a broken finger and had had an X-ray done. I prayed for him and he felt tingling in his finger which I believe was God’s power touching him. I also spoke to a lady sitting just outside the hospital who told me that she was struggling with giving up alcohol, and she was bruised on her face. I suspect there was more to her story, but she wanted prayer. When I prayed for her she tangibly felt God’s presence flow in to her which I told her was the love of Jesus Christ. She wasn’t ready to accept Christ at that moment saying she wanted to do things one step at a time, but I believe it was a divine appointment. What I didn’t know was that my wife’s room was literally directly above, and she had seen me and took a picture of me ministering:

I also prayed for a Christian from another local church in Dudley in town with a leg problem. He told me he felt like the Holy Spirit was massaging his leg, and when I saw him a few minutes later, he said he was moving much better with no pain. I also saw a man handing out cards for his wife who is a psychic, and invited them both to attend our meetings and see the supernatural for themselves.
Also, our church went out corporately on the streets of Dudley during the Joel’s Army conference last week with Brian Johnson ministering in the meetings. In town, people got healed and saved. Please pray for us as we continue to carry God’s love, fire and healing anointing outside the church. Pray for divine appointments, miracles, salvations, and those who do accept Christ to become radical disciples for Him. This is a time to seek God more fervently, while at the same time not neglect the harvest fields.

People witness miracle healing in Dudley, salvations result.

July 21, 2008

Today was beautifully warm and sunny, and I went into town looking for people to share Jesus with. I walked past a group of people including one woman who I recognised as having spoken to before who confirmed that her friend who I had prayed for was now feeling much better. She was with a group of friends, mainly elderly, and one young man, 14 years old who was there with his grandmother. This opened things up for me to be able to offer healing prayer to the people in this small group. The woman told me that her friend had suffered with arthritis for ten years. The lady with arthritis was happy for me to pray for her. She told me that she was in pain in her neck and back. I was aware that people were watching, so I knew that this could result in several people seeing how real Jesus is. When I prayed, the lady told me she felt heat, and the pain left her. She was amazed when she started moving her neck from side to side free of pain something that she had not been able to do before, and also she was happy with what God was doing with her back as well. She confirmed that she was healed, and kept saying to her friends “I can’t believe it!” She was convicted to accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour. Her grandson, 14, had been watching, and after talking to him, he wanted to give his life to Christ too. After leading him through the prayer of salvation, I laid my hand on him and prayed for him, and he admitted to tangibly feeling God’s presence. I told him that once you tangibly feel the presence of God, you are never the same again. God also gave me words of knowledge for both of them which they both confirmed to be right. One of the friends of the woman who was healed in that group of observers testifies to the miracle healing she saw after that woman and her grandson had left. See this:

It’s interesting that The Lord is allowing situations where people on the streets can see the miracles unfolding without me having contrived that. My vision is for that to draw people’s attention to Jesus because He alone can transform people’s lives and shape their eternal destinies. Increasingly more people in the local community are now aware of what God is doing in our church and out on the streets. I want them to start talking about what Jesus is doing because I always stress that miracles come from God alone, and that’s why all the glory goes to Him. My prayer is that as they see what is happening on the streets, they would come to our church, most importantly whether they come to our church or not that they would ultimately become radical followers of Jesus Christ.
