I pray for business owners, CEO’s, leaders, administrators, managers, financial backers, marketplace entrepreneurs and anyone involved in economic ventures, to discover this December and holiday season that according to the bible, it is not some scheme, clever advertizing technique, marketing jingle or merger, but rather Continue reading →
Last week we had a delivery scheduled from a large hardware chain in the area and the driver came in a larger truck that you can see here in the picture. After he unloaded our supplies, I engaged him in some conversation about his job, but did not bring up anything remotely spiritual and out of the blue he confided in me Continue reading →
What a Blessing and Honor it is to serve the Lord!

I’m sure you have heard of the TV show, “The Fear Factor” – well, let me tell you, I have a Wow Factor. I am seeing a number of people growing in their faith, stepping out in new realms of ministry and faith walking with Jesus in ways that I am confident is pleasing to our Father. For it is by faith that we are pleasing to Him. Fear can stand for, “Forget everything and run, or Continue reading →
Kingdom Encounter: Friday and Saturday – with Guest Speaker Jay West
Pastor/Teacher Jay West with Anointed 2 GO MdM (Multi-denominational Ministries) will be leading the seminar teaching and sharing from his new book “Downloads from Heaven” on how to hear from God and then minister in the power of the Holy Spirit what has been heard, to bring needed change, healing, deliverance, protection, blessing and the manifested presence of God on the scene to change the environment, atmosphere and spiritual climate that enables others to Encounter the Kingdom of God.
Over the years I have been accused of being a literalist when it comes to the bible, and I am okay with that. I would rather take the bible for what it says and believe it then try to make it into something that fits my culture, or my political persuasion, or even try to make it fit into my family and business. I don’t see where the bible says we can take the scriptures and bend them into our way of thinking but rather, we are to conform ourselves to what it is saying, and make the appropriate and necessary changes.
There are those who even within the church try to make it say what it is not saying to be culturally correct, rather than walking in the same faith that Abraham and so many others did not knowing where they were going but trusting God along the way anyway.
One of the biblical truths that I hold onto today is that God still heals. I know that there are many who disagree with me, but in reality their arguments and perspectives are just too little too late. Let me explain.
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!
