Beware of the half truths, because you may have a hold of the wrong half.
Today while ministering in a local prison, one of the inmates asked some questions about speaking in tongues and having a prayer language. After sharing some scriptures and personal testimonies, I suggested a huddle prayer, and so each of the three guys put his fist in the middle with mine and I simply invited the Holy Spirit and one of the men started praying in a very energetic and enthusiastic prayer language. He then started jumping and shouting and I thought the guards were going to get on my case for his enthusiasm.
This man then shared how in the past this would have scared him and he would have departed from a church that participated in this, plus he told everyone that just a few months prior to this he had actually preached against it to some other inmates who were trying to convince him of the value of a prayer language. After this happened I suggested we go back for seconds and so it happened again, and the guy was just all smiles and happy. Later in church our pastor asked me to share about it with the congregation and of course they were equally joyful and cheering and celebrating too.
If you want to know more while discovering a really balanced approach and teaching to this subject, then get my book “Willing to Yield” and read the chapter titled, “Getting un-tongue tied.” Keep in mind that your life does not get better by chance, but by change. Jesus is the best change agent we have available. Don’t delay making an appointment with Him.
My new book Kingdom Encounters – co-authored with my son Jason with the foreword by Jack Taylor who is Bill Johnson’s spiritual father should be available in about three weeks. You can order it from me, or wait to it get it on Amazon, Kindle, E-Books, Audio Books and in bookstores both secular and Christian. Then my first two books will be available in those venues hopefully by early summer, and my 4th book will go to the publisher sometime later this summer as well. Thank you to all who have read and are reading my books.
I am teaching a prophetic class at Eagle’s Nest Worship Center in Omaha for six weeks starting this Sunday March 9th – beginning at 4:30 p.m until 6:00 p.m. – there are already over 30 peoples signed up to attend. We are using my recent book Willing to Yield but will be supplemented with the new one called Kingdom Encounters. We will learn how to hear God’s voice thru words of knowledge, and words of wisdom, how to interact with people in public when God speaks to us, and then know how to proceed. We will also learn how to pray for the sick and actually see them get well really fast. This will be a fun class with lots of interaction and experiencing God too – There is a slight cost of $15 per person – if you are interested contact me or just show up on Sunday. The cost includes receiving one of the two books, with the balance helping to pay for childcare. If you are in the greater Omaha area and want to attend, please leave me a message at the bottom of this post with your email address and I can send you more information. You are welcome to attend. Remember that bible study without bible experience is pointless.
This past Monday I went through my first SOZO session and wow, what a wonderful experience. I can’t wait for my next session. God did so much and opened my heart up for more of His love, more of His grace, more of His power, and more of His presence. My hunger suddenly increased for more of God too. I cannot fully explain here in this setting and venue what happened, but hopefully after a couple more sessions I can write and share.
I’ve been praying, speaking and writing, and texting healing prayers and hearing immediate reports of instantaneous healings and incredible testimonies of how the disease or symptoms or pain just suddenly disappeared. This is a God thing as people read the texts or email notes, or hear the prayer in person too, and get well so fast. I am literally seeing about 75% of everyone I am praying for getting well. I am so honored to carry the Kingdom of God in this realm. And I keep pressing in for more as I know thee is a lot more! Remember that changing patterns usually happens by deleting patterns. God can help you with this, just ask him.
