Let me share an interesting story. A few weeks ago, I was invited to be the guest presenter at the Nebraska State Aglow Conference to be held in Kearney, Nebraska. The selection team consists of seven or eight ladies who are on that particular leadership team. Each year they acquire or receive some names of possible speakers, and Continue reading
I had a 9th grader come up to me yesterday to tell me how much my ministry meant to him last year – I met a barista at starbucks who told me that she remembered my topic at her school 8 years ago -and quoted the topic back to me and told me how much it ministered to her – met a guy at a fast food restaurant recently who approached me and said he remembered my presentation about six years ago at his youth group and wanted to thank me for it – so the ministry and messages seem to have lasting effect for which I am grateful – those things are so amazing – Wow!
I just recently ministerd at a local church where we saw and experienced so many healings and amazing things that God was doing in the house. I basically preached a new message about how when you hear a testimony, it can release a prophetic work in you to receive a similar move of God in your life and produce another testimony in like fashion – giving several examples plus scripture verses to back it up. After sharing this message that included many testimonies I asked those in pain to stand up, Continue reading
I will add current pictures to this post on Saturday, but wanted to give an update –
First, while attendance on Thursday was a little less than most of the other meetings, it surged again this evening. There were many young adults and college age students along with some high school students and children. One of the healings from the night before was a young lady – I believe she was 13 and had a metal plate fused in her back since she was seven, and could not bend or touch her toes, but suddenly Continue reading
Revival was amazing tonight – It started very different in that the large contingency of students were encouraged to go to their own youth groups, so the meeting started small, but many people drifted in and we ended up having a large group. There were a number of college students from various colleges, including Grace University that our son Jason attends and almost all of them were healed of something including partially deaf ears and a previously shattered elbow that straightened out and arthritis – yes arthritis in a student Continue reading
Earlier on Monday Dec 10th, I drove 1.5 hours to minister to some inmates at the maximum security prison in Tecumseh, Nebraska. Some of the men who actually belonged to our church (Eagle’s Nest pictured here) have started their own prison ministry to the other inmates in that they save up their weekly salary of about $2 a week and use that money to buy snacks and toothpaste and other essentials to give to other inmates in the yard. They also pray for the inmates and collect prayer requests and send them to the church we belong to in Omaha. They witness and lead inmates to the Lord, so a few months ago I started writing to one of the leaders and this has led me now to where I go in and minister to the top four leaders to encourage and bless and teach and pray with them.
After being admitted to the waiting area inside of the prison, I felt led to sit next to a couple whose son is from Omaha and is prison there as well. I shared with them what I wrote above and they asked me if I could ask the leaders to reach out to their son. Continue reading
If you haven’t heard there is a revival going on in Omaha Nebraska that started spontaneously last Monday – tonight is the 8th night. Kris Kildosher from the healing rooms at Bethel Church in Redding CA came to speak and is still here. Each night the room is packed out with adults and students – many high school students from public schools in the area have attended and encountered Jesus. Healings happen every night in dramatic form and casual ways – many students from high schools and now colleges who were big skeptics of healing or that God speaks today have since changed their minds.
A recent note on the Omaha HUB Facebook page from a parent reads like this:
My son goes to Millard High North, and the revival is becoming a hot topic of conversation!! Kids are getting saved, healed delivered!!! Go God!!! All gory to you King Jesus!!!! Thank you for what you’re doing in our city!!! Continue reading
A very good friend of mine in Los Angeles sent me an email this morning – her name is Pia Hugo and she gave me permission to repost what she wrote to me here on the blog. I believe it will benefit others who read it. I was blessed to minister with her to over 400 public high school students this past Spring in the Los Angeles area and she refers to some of that in her post, but basically, her response is to a number of vicious attacks we have been experiencing financially, health wise and relationship wise – it seems that the enemy is very mad and upset over the release of my new book this week called “Downloads from Heaven”, along with our commitment to reaching 1000 people for Jesus this year and our strong commitment to see more and more people healed by the power of God. And coupled with that is Jason’s new worship album released called “Running Free.” So with that in mind and without sharing further details on how the various attacks are manifesting in our lives, let me cut and paste Pia’s email below – I pray it is helpful to others that read it and/or perhaps it is something that you may want to refer to a friend who is experiencing similar trials and difficult situations.
Hello Brother Jay!
Since receiving this email yesterday, I have been in distress over you and I have been praying for you and asking the Lord to reveal to me what is happening. This morning, as I was doing my devotionals, this quote from Rick Joyner’s book, “The Harvest” jumped out at me:
“It is an age-old tactic of the enemy to try to devour what God is bringing forth while it is still in its infancy. We see this in Revelation 12:16, as the dragon waited for the woman to give birth so that he might devour the child. We see this principle with the birth of Moses and Satan’s attempt to destroy the deliverer by destroying the male infants of Israel. This was a prophetic parallel of his strategy to destroy the infant Jesus in the same way. We also see this in his attempt to destroy any coming last-day ministry…”
