Trumpet of the Lord!


God has been moving in my life in powerful ways over the past couple of days.

I’ve been being attacked on my weakest areas by the enemy over the past couple weeks.  I have not always succeeded in fending him off – and yesterday,  I fell (again.)  While I was feeling unworthy, guilty and afraid of God’s wrath, my friend called me and asked me how I was doing.  So I confessed my sin to her (according to the Sciptures, ‘Confess your sins one to another, and pray for one another, so that you can be healed’, I think the verse goes…) and asked for prayer.

She prayed for me, asking God to restore me… actually, she was praying prophetically.  She told me that Satan has presented himself before God like he did with Job, and that he has been attacking me… but that she sees me as a trumpet in the Lord’s hand.  She said that Satan has put a scratch on God’s trumpet, but that it is still in God’s hand.  She prayed for me, and the Presence of the Lord came on me. She said that God hasn’t come to me in judgement, but is the gardener of John 15, and Jesus is the vine… and that God is raking up dead leaves… She spoke to my call as a prophetic voice and said that there will be ripple effects in the lives of those I help! All I could do is stand amazed, and humbled before God.

I just sat there and let God wash over me… and as she prayed restoration, and for a while after she left I could feel the restoration power kicking out the demonic oppressions that were on me – my eyes began to get hot and tear up, and I started yawning.  God did a work right there over the phone, and I was fully restored by the time she called back to check up on me.

I’m still awed by that vision she had – a trumpet in the Lord’s hand! I know that trumpets in Scripture speak to prophecy, and to the Voice of the Lord… and I’m so grateful to God that my mistakes don’t disqualify me!

Thank u Jesus….

Online Deliverance!


God’s been awesome – still blowing my mind away!  Just had another MSN deliverance session with a friend, who confessed that she didn’t feel as though God cared about her –  She was feeling as though when she prayed that God would ignore her.   Well, I had her renounce that lie, as we all know God loves us – right? John 3:16… Anyway, I had her renounce what she had been saying, as I explained that words have power and that whenever she said that God wasn’t ‘studying’ her (slang for not paying attention) that she was actually putting a curse on herself.

I had her pray a prayer of repentance and renunciation – repenting for her doubt and renouncing the curses that were over her life. I led her to accept what God has said over her (using Psalm 139 – “for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, I know that full well…”) Then I led her to specifically command the spirits of Anti-Christ, Self Pity, Doubt, Fear, Abandonment, Fear of Abandonment and Rejection.  She told me that she felt a release… physically that she felt a “cool feeling right by my heart area.”  I led her to speak out the Scripture that “perfect love casts out fear” and we cast out Unbelief.  We accepted more Scripture references as to how God saw her. She said that she yawned three times straight after that.

I led her to command out any other spirits of Antichrist, Fear or Unbelief that were still there in her life – and she felt another release. And then, we prayed in the opposite – the Spirit of God to fill the spaces left by the enemy’s departure.  I prayed that God will give her the spirit of wisdom and revelation, I prayed that He would increase her faith… in fact, I prayed that God give her a supernatural faith.

I asked her to read Ps 139 to meditate on it – but she’d already started!  I asked her how she felt – I encouraged her that God loved her and would NEVER leave her… and I asked her if she believed that. She said YES!

Hallelujah! Yet another MSN deliverance! God is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

New Direction!


Change.

That’s the word I plan to use as my watchword this new year (both my wife and I had birthdays within this month – hers was the 21st.)  I came to a shocking revelation – it is SOOO easy to get busy doing the work of the ministry that you don’t realize that you haven’t connected to the person who has started the ministry in the first place!  As one person put it, putting the work of the Lord before the Lord of the work!

I realized that after I found myself not standing up against weaknesses and temptations in my life that I was running on ’empty’.  There was nothing there to fortify me against the enemy and my flesh.  I was so busy trying to get on the hamster’s wheel every morning – get up-get dressed-get out-go to work-go home-start again the next morning – that I didn’t even realize when my devotional time got sucked out….  in the middle of all of this there was serving the church and setting captives free in my deliverance sessions… no wonder my body craved rest! I didn’t realize it till this weekend, but that stretching myself thin had taken a toll on my spiritual health as well.

This weekend, on Lesanne’s birthday, I prayed for her and prophesied over her that God was saying “New Direction.” She’s gotten a cool new haircut, started putting on makeup again and generally decided that this year was not going to be like last year. (Wow, my wife is so sexy when she dresses up… <ahem> where was I? Oh yeah…)  When I felt God speak that over her, I took it for myself as well: we’ve been saying that we both have realized our lack of devotional time and so we prayed and made some decisions to get up earlier and read the Scripture together.

I’ve also realized that I don’t get as much spiritual connection as I need all the time… for the last couple of weeks I’ve been missing meetings at my assembly for different reasons, but without that connection things have been going out of whack.  So I am going to make a point to ‘not forsake the assembling of [myself] together [with the believers].’ I’ve made a decision to make sure I visit with at least one other church in my network every week.  I was even going to try to grit my teeth and go with my wife to her assembly more (she goes to a traditional charismatic assembly, whereas I assemble with a house church) even though  the different styles are like chalk and cheese to me – and sometimes the noise and shouting gets to me…

I realized also that I hate routine…. it bores me, and I crave change.  That being said, routine is a part of discipline, which I need to work at.  I’m a soldier in the army of the Lord, so discipline must become a part of my life so that I don’t waver in my duties.

I keep remembering what I was told by my spiritual dad – character and gifting work together, like a spear: the gifting would be the sharp point of the spear, but it is ineffective without the shaft, representing the character. The shaft gives the spear balance, which makes the point more effective.  I’m working at it, Rowley…

So I’m making changes… aiming for a new direction in my life, and helping to point my family in new directions towards Christ as well!

Random Thoughts


Have just gotten back into the swing of things after being down with a virus for a week and a half.  I’m just grateful to the Lord for his provision for me. I got a week home from work when my body was screaming for rest – and I got it too, because the medication I was on was all sleep-inducing, so I couldn’t do much else other than crash out for the majority of the week!  The children were sick this week too – actually, the entire family seemed to come down with something this particular week.

In the midst of this, however, I was able to go through a deliverance session, and thank God the client was a quiet fellow not known for much boisterous behaviour!  The session itself was a quiet one, which was fine by me – I was still tired, and had to stop twice as I ran out of breath or my throat got too dry to continue…. but having help is good, and I had someone there to take over while I took a secondary role for a while, until I could get my strength back.

My birthday and Father’s Day went quietly for me – almost normal days… although I did get a surprise bottle of wine from my wife on my birthday.

I’m looking forward to hosting a couple who are now based in South Africa – Mike and Leona Cosgrove.  Mike was integral to my own deliverance when I was in Tampa last year, and since then he’s gotten married and moved to South Africa and started work there as well.  I’ve gotten my South African intercessor to get into contact with him, as she wanted more information about the ministry of deliverance herself.  So he should be here in July, and he’s consented to speak to my church, giving his testimony and what God has been doing since his relocation.  That promises to be an exciting time!

Also, there’s a Break Free Conference being hosted by Pastor Nicholls here as well – he’s invited Pastor Paul and Dr. Claire Hollis and their team back for another week of life-impactful meetings from July 6th – 12th.  I have seen this teaching revolutionize my own life, and I’m excited to see what God is going to do in Barbados while these meetings are taking place.

It’s been a whirlwind couple of months, seeing the Lord catapult me into active service for him – this blog has been at once filled with accounts of how God has used me to set captives free, as well as being a meeting place where I have connected with some wonderful people, some of whom have become quite dear to me over a short period of time.  It has also been a place where God’s power has been in full effect – quite the expansion of God’s kingdom across the information superhighway!  I’m just in awe of how God can use any means of human interaction – real or virtual – for his purposes.

Happy Birthday to ME!!!!


Yesterday was my 30th birthday…. Wahoo!!!!!

I’m just excited to see what God is going to do this year… and what he and I will do together to advance his Kingdom!

Bless you Jesus, for another year…
