When we started attending Eagle’s Nest Worship Center in Omaha a little over four years ago, there was a Greeter who was always so friendly and he and I became good friends. His name was Samuel Lee, but most people referred to him as Brother Lee. Everyone could always count on a warm handshake or hug and a great smile and a goofy joke, but his concern and love was genuine for everyone who came in to the church. I was told he served on the Greeter Ministry for nearly 15 years and it was a great fit for him because he “never knew any strangers.” Continue reading →

Encouragement, Biblical teaching, true-life stories, and mind-set challenges are all involved in Jay West’s book, Downloads from Heaven. I love Jay’s conversational style of writing that should draw in every reader. It can be a strange concept to some to think that we, mere humans, could actually hear from God and receive His direction, instructions, and knowledge. Yet, Jay makes a clear case that the Bible does teach exactly that truth and that each follower of Christ can experience a word of knowledge from the Holy Spirit as a regular part of life.
Last night we had a cool testimony as I led my second session with children at Eagle’s Nest on the Power and Access of the Holy Spirit – Some of the children heard from God in their small group prayer times as they prayed spontaneously for each other and most of the kids experienced some carpet time, and the parents began to pick up their little ones but the ones who had not been prayed for were …waiting in a line – at one point there was only a couple of children left.One was a young girl that I would estimate was only 7 years old. She came forward for the prayer for the Holy Spirit but I noticed she was limping, so I asked if her foot was hurting and she nodded her head yes, so I first prayed for her foot, and after a short bit asked her to walk across the room. You could see the skepticism in her eyes, and she sighed, I suspect because she knew her foot was hurting and that meant more pain, but she did it, and came back and I asked her how it was, and she said it was a little bit better.
I then prayed one more time for about 20 seconds and then asked her to walk across the room again, and this time she did not sigh, but complied, and I could visibly see that the limp was gone, and as she came back, she had this huge smile on her face and put her thumb up in the air and told me that the pain was completely gone. I then prayed for her again, and she gently fell to the floor. It was very cool, how God touched and healed her too.
Earlier in the service, some of the children gathered around me and prayed for me too – that was really sweet and I sensed the anointing really strong from some of them. The previous Sunday we had about 80 children on the floor experiencing the power and the presence of God in their lives. Even some of the adult helpers got blasted by the Holy Spirit.
The next Kingdom Encounter is Friday evening so you Omaha area folks come out and expect a great and wonderful time with God in His presence in similar fashion to the note above. I am teaching on and about “faith”. Saturday I am ministering in Seward Nebraska teaching two sessions on Kingdom Dynamics. Remember, With God all things are possible and Jesus is Lord!
Yesterday our church had their annual free car wash. We washed 124 cars in three hours and gave away hot dogs, chips, cookies and drinks to nearly 500 people and had some sweet things happening in the prayer tent. Here are some highlights.
We had two gang members come through to get their cars washed, but ended up laying down their colors and surrendering their lives to Jesus. We had a pastor who was around 70 years old just sit for nearly three hours and watched as Whites, Hispanics, Blacks, Older and Younger worked joyfully together – he kept commenting that he had never seen anything like this in his history as a pastor. He said he was learning what the Kingdom of God was all about. Continue reading →
