A Special Video Update!February 20, 2019
Publish date: 02/20/2019Greetings in the name of Jesus! We pray you are having an awesome week!
Adonica and I have returned from our ten-city tour across Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, England, and Wales. We saw 5,111 people in attendance, 1,815 people answer the altars, and 3,042 people mobilized for the harvest. These are upper room meetings where we focus on getting people saved, revived, filled with the Holy Spirit, and inspired, ignited and mobilized to win souls.
The schedule is hectic—one night in each city—but we were made for this. Ministry is work! Sometimes people have this illusion about what ministry is, and it’s not—that’s why people don’t make it. What I do, many ministers are not going to do. They are not willing to pay the price. Sometimes, people are so focused on the large opportunities, they miss all the small ones God brings their way. We need to be willing to minister to the 99 but we are also called to reach, and minister to, the one.
We try to organize the meetings beforehand, but sometimes the schedule changes and we end up going to some places with only two-weeks notice. Some of those have been the best nights of the tour. We are so excited to see the fruit coming from these meetings, already. As we go from city to city, the churches and venues are packing out with hungry people. Some of the cities, and venues, are smaller and some are larger, but in most places, they tell us they have never seen that many people show up for a service, ever. In some of the places, they tell us that they are so thankful we came, because “no one” comes to preach in their town. Amazingly, even in places where they have had well-known preachers come in, we are still seeing the largest crowds they’ve ever had in their churches. The Lord is doing something. People are hungry for the supernatural!
I am looking for at least 100 people per city to be ignited. If I get any more than that, I am already ahead of the curve. There were only 120 people in the Upper Room in Jerusalem but, filled with the Holy Ghost, they shook the world. We are expecting God to do great things! Watch the video below for some encouraging news.
This past Sunday, I continued the FIREPOWER series with a message entitled "Infallible Proofs." These two words just kept going over and over in my spirit while I was on the ten-city tour. Watch the replay.
The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, 2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: 3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God. 4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. 5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. Acts 1:1-5 KJV
1. Many Infallible Proofs.
a. Forty days of infallible proofs.
b. That He was alive—resurrected from the dead.
c. Jesus tells them to go and tarry (wait) until they have received, and are filled, with the power of God—with the infallible proof—so they can be “proof producers.”
d. Acts 1:8 KJV
e. Receive power—to be a witness.
f. Power—so you can be proof-producers of the fact that Jesus is alive.
a. Acts 2:1-4 KJV
b. The Upper Room—the place of empowerment.
c. Acts 2:13-16 KJV
d. Full of new wine.
e. These are not drunk as you suppose.
f. This is that.
3. The Results of the Infallible Proof.
a. Souls saved—3000, then 5000.
b. Acts 2:41 KJV
c. Acts 4:4 KJV
e. Acts 3:1-11
f. Man, who was born lame, healed.
g. Acts 4:33 KJV
4. Proof on Display: Miracles, Signs and Wonders.
a. Ananias and Sapphira.
b. Acts 5:1-11 KJV
c. Power emanating from Peter.
d. Acts 5:15-16 KJV
e. God always confirms His Word with signs and wonders.
f. It’s time to demonstrate the proof more than ever.
Thank you to each of you who pray for Adonica and me and invest in the Gospel. Your seed is being sown into good ground, and this harvest of souls is yours as you link yourself with us.
Let each one [give] as he has made up his own mind and purposed in his heart, not reluctantly or sorrowfully or under compulsion, for God loves (He takes pleasure in, prizes above other things, and is unwilling to abandon or to do without) a cheerful (joyous, “prompt to do it”) giver [whose heart is in his giving]. 8 And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation]. 2 Corinthians 9:7-8 AMPC
Ask the Lord how you can be a part of the harvest, and do what He tells you to do! Invest in the Gospel!
We are praying for you, for multiplication, and for acceleration in everything that you do.
