Today, my blog takes on a different tone and form as I write a tribute to the victims and those who responded to the Las Vegas Shootings. Continue reading
We went out to eat at a restaurant that is only 12 blocks from our house that we have never been to in the 17 years we have lived here, and I initially engaged our waitress in some light humor, that she enjoyed, and later noticed our waitress was limping so I asked what was wrong? Continue reading
This testimony is written by a young lady here at Kingdom Encounters in Omaha, who has been attending now with her husband for about six months or so, and growing in her faith and relationship with God, by leaps and bounds. Continue reading
We are blessed in that Kingdom Encounters in Omaha is truly developing a revival culture while simultaneously and spontaneously recently hosting a series of evening meetings that were not planned by us, but definitely by the Holy Spirit. We hosted four evenings of revival and they were glorious. Continue reading
“Kingdom Life Squared – Learning to Live on God’s Kingdom Life Support”
Over the last 15 years I have had multiple Presidential Dreams including several with George W. Bush, one each with George H. Bush, John Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Abe Lincoln, plus two with Barack Obama and now this new one with President’s Obama, Clinton, and Bush. Continue reading
Several years ago a lady that I knew sowed $20 into my ministry and I felt impressed to pray that her return would be squared back to her. If I had prayed that it would be doubled, Continue reading
I am currently writing my 5th book and I thought I would share one of the testimonies from chapter one. This book is titled “Fresh Oil,” as it is a great reflection of what God is doing in our church called Kingdom Encounters. We planted this church about 2.5 years ago, and I shared a message early on about the anointing of God from Psalm 92:10 where it says we shall be anointed with fresh oil. So in our culture here, you will rarely hear an Amen of agreement, but instead you will often hear the phrase Fresh Oil when someone likes what is happening at Kingdom Encounters.

Okay – here is the testimony from Chapter One:
On October 19, 2014 which was the first official day of our new church plant called Kingdom Encounters, God did something miraculous that truly demonstrated who He is, and how He will be with us, while showing where we would be going as a church. We have a lady in our church named Sharon. She happens to be the oldest member of church at the age of 76. She was 73 when this miracle happened. She is pictured above.
Sharon was walking with a walker and a cane depending on the severity of her pain and discomfort as was scheduled to have knee replacement surgery just eleven days later. I asked her if I could pray for her, and after a 20 second prayer she stated she felt warmth in her knee. I suggested that she try walking up some small steps, which she was able to do with ease. All week long she tried to get her knee to hurt, even bending it backwards in weird positions and at times jumping up and down, yet she had no pain. About six days later she went into see her doctor for a pre-operation exam and she shared with him that I had prayed with her and that she had no pain all week. After further examination he cancelled the surgery declaring that she was well.
The interesting thing about this is that she was also experiencing shortness of breath and dizziness too and both of these symptoms were also healed, even though we never even prayed for them. All I did was ask for God’s presence to come, spoke and shared some healing declarations and Sharon got well, and now nearly three years later she still has not had the surgery. I have seen her walk up and down flights of stairs with no problems. She even cleans our church building as a volunteer.
This is what having a Fresh Anointing is all about. This is the importance of walking in and with Fresh Oil as we are Anointed 2 GO and do Kingdom stuff that God may call on us to accomplish.
If you want to get to heaven, all you have to do is believe in Jesus, but if you want to be a disciple of Jesus, you must follow Him, and that folks takes risk, but God is faithful and loves to flow through people taking risky steps of faith. Let me say it one more way. If you want to move from Earth to Heaven someday, just simply believe in Jesus, but if you want to move Heaven to Earth today, you must be a follower of Jesus. Fresh Oil!
Before I share the dream, let me give some background information below to help you understand my theological perspective. I have seen angels on several occasions, and demons once. I have no interest in ever seeing demons again, but they were real in this dream and manifesting differently than my previous observations of them. On the other hand, angels are amazing, wonderful, delightful and beautiful and I would welcome their appearance at any time. Continue reading
