Repost: How Great is Our God!


I’m continuing with my reposting – trying to get myself back into the swing of regular posting without having to strain my brain looking for more content; as well, I get a chance to show of the ridiculously good God we have. Enjoy this – and keep on praying! (first posted in 2008!) 

How great is our God / Sing with me how great is our God/And all will see/How great/How great/Is our God!

God is awesome!!!!!

Had a deliverance session last night – it was awesome watching the Lord work and demons fleeing at the mention of the name of Jesus! It was a long session, but really rewarding – God moved sovereignly as I commanded the evil spirits out. It was even more awe inspiring to watch the Lord touch her as the evil spirits were removed and the presence of the Lord came in to fill the vacant spaces – I commanded out a spirit of heaviness and declared Isaiah 61:3, that the Lord gives the ‘oil of joy for the spirit of heaviness’, and she started to laugh; as I commanded out anxiety and spoke in the peace of God, based on Philippians 4:6-7, she visibly relaxed and you could physically see the change in her appearance as God’s peace entered her.  As I commanded out doubt and unbelief, the Lord had me release supernatural faith in its place – you should have seen the power of God hit her!

As I called out multiple personalities and commanded them to tell me their names, four identified themselves and were removed. As I broke ungodly soul ties and canceled curses of words spoken, tears flowed. Surprise was registered on her face as the Lord supernaturally revealed things that she didn’t even realize were there. After the 3 hour session, I laid hands on her and prophesied her destiny – released God’s call on her life and the power of God hit her; she could barely stand at one point. God is just awesome!!

So I’m rejoicing! One more victory for the Kingdom of God!

Personal Devotions: Fulfilled (Joel 2:19-20)


Dead Sea

Dead Sea (via Wikipedia)

 

As I was replying to a friend’s post this morning I started to comment on her blog.  This is what I said:

I feel fulfilled being used by God to encourage and uplift people, seeing joy as they come through their dark stages of angst and fear and out into the marvelous light of their liberation. I feel fulfilled when my words inspire and bring a sense of “Yes!” to someone’s soul and spirit.

I haven’t been feeling fulfilled or fulfilling lately – and it isn’t for lack of trying.  I have been feeling depressed and burnt out for a little while now, but this comment reminded me of what I feel called to do, who I am called to be.

As I was writing this post, I started to remember a passage that was prophetically given to me by my friend Annie last year.  She was saying to me that God wanted to fulfill me – to satisfy me fully.  This is the passage she used, Joel 2:19 – 20

19 The LORD replied[a] to them:

“I am sending you grain, new wine and olive oil,
enough to satisfy you fully;
never again will I make you
an object of scorn to the nations.

20 “I will drive the northern horde far from you,
pushing it into a parched and barren land;
its eastern ranks will drown in the Dead Sea
and its western ranks in the Mediterranean Sea.
And its stench will go up;
its smell will rise.”

I remembered crying out to God after reading that passage – “God! Satisfy me!  I need you to satisfy me fully!  I need you to be the centre of my life again!”  I was crying out in such passion and anguish – begging God to save me, that I remember waking my wife up in the next room….

The ‘northern horde’ in verse 20 referred to the demonic oppression around me, Annie explained, and God was promising to deliver me fully from all of it .

As I ponder this verse again, looking back over the past couple months…. I think it’s time for me to cry out to Him in the same manner…

“Deliver me… make me want you again…. fulfill me… I want YOU to satisfy me FULLY… not anything or anyone else….. I can’t do this without you… HELP ME!!!!!!!

I pray that all who read this today are inspired to call out to him on their own, and again reach for fulfillment in HIM.

MSN Testimony!


I’ve again had an awesome time praying for someone over an MSN chat. I hope these testimonies bless those who read as much as they bless me for the telling!  Here’s another way God is shown POWERFUL!

I have been home on sick leave from work, and I’ve just started a conversation with one of my friends.  Just after the small talk, “Hi, how are you!” kind of opening I said to her:

I was gonna ask you how your relationship with God was going [but] God interrupted me and gave me the word, “Fire-carrier”….  with the sense that you should ask him for ways to extend the reach of his Spirit beyond the church building and carry it to those around you, as it is inside you already!    Your passion for him is radiating off of u… I can see it from here!

That doesn’t mean u don’t have bad days   Just that God sees the direction of your heart and it is still towards him, no matter what’s going on right now.

She replied:

wowww   as usual God is always on time and i really thank God for you and even more for your openess to allow God to use you as a voice piece…i have something on my mind (cant share it as yet) but that is just some confirmation.

I told her:

don’t have to share it with me ….  His presence is around you like sparks …. you need to stop doubting who HE is in YOU and ACT

To this she replied:

uhhhumm i keep getting that … i need to get up and do something i am a bit too relaxed.

So I gave her encouragement about time management (yeah right, ME??? Ha!) only by telling her to let God tell her what to do, when, and for how long.  She told me she set her timetable deliberately so that if she got a job she could go to class in the evenings.  No job has come yet, so she wonders what else God has in store – she told me that she felt God had given her something in her heart that she should do – so I said, “God says GO FOR IT”

So near the end of the conversation I gave her my cell number and said to her:

I know that there’s a reason I connect with your spirit every time we talk – so I want to keep u close lolol

whenever we talk the prophetic flows freely. That shows me that there’s a like spirit there, shows me that u’re open to it; shows me that God has plans for u

She replied:

uhhum – you’re telling me and it always leaves me in awe because it encourages or re-affims and it is just when i need it.

uhhumm – now this is profound! wowwww …. but Lord i thank you

(Isn’t that the goal of prophetic ministry?  God is awesome!)

I have sensed that she herself has prophetic giftings, so I said:

I want to see you step out coz I am sure that you have a prophetic streak in you that you’re afraid to use …. or don’t know it’s there.  I feel like you get thoughts about others but never say it coz you’re afraid you might be wrong … you know what? I started out like that too! Just have to jump for it and take the risk… and realize that you don’t miss it as much as you think you would!

To wish she exclaimed:

OOMMGG (g=goodness) ROBERT u need to stop it!!!!! no i am jus kiddin

(Sounds like I hit a nerve, eh?) 😆

While she continued to exclaim I told her

You have gifts that Father wants to nurture and release – not only back into your Wesleyan context – but outside into the world!  There are people who are not going to grace the inside of a church but will meet God as u speak into their souls, revealing what God has shown you.

What is happening with you is that you are seeing – for yourself – that God is real, his VOICE is real and HE KNOWS YOU; so that you can use that as testimony to others when u tell them what God is showing u for THEM.  When others challenge u, u can say, I know it’s real – it HAPPENED TO ME!

She confessed that I was right and that she never went ahead because of fear, so I started to pray over her right there, praying against fear and releasing the BOLDNESS OF THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH. I said in part:

ROAR with GOD’S VOICE

lay hands on the sick and they shall recover

prophesy to the breath and let the Spirit revive those slain (Ez 37)

God has a mighty work for her to do

Do not fear the uninformed… God breaks you from your tradition NOW

in the name of JESUS CHRIST

He wants to be able to move you wherever, whenever

give him ur allegiance!

When I asked her what happened she said:

well i even as you prayed i prayed and believed God with you and yes i yawned and i felt a release and i started shaking and said something i did not understand and i kept saying Jesus is Lord

She told me later she’d heard the tongues in her head, but this was the first time she’d spoken them out loud.

All I have to say is: WOW. GOD IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Does anyone have anything else they’d like to share?

Deliverance and Healing


Finally I have gotten around to this question of deliverance and healing… I know I promised I would look into it. Actually, a post on another site I visit brought it up, and I decided I would link to it. I like what it said, and I agree with it. So go here to read the full article…

What about people who truly believe or truly want to be free but cannot get their breakthrough? – as a couple people who have gotten into contact with me are…

Why do some get their deliverance easily and others don’t? Is God unfair?

Testimony: Another soul free!


“Glory to God in the highest heaven
Peace to all men on the earth…”

I have just come from two nights of deliverance ministry – praying with a friend of mine in South Africa! We’ve been starting at 3 AM my time because I am about 6 hours behind her in Durban, so it was 9 AM her time, and we spanned two days because I needed to prepare myself for work at 5:30 my time….. but SHE IS FREE!!!!!!!

She was very prepared, and very willing. Exercising God’s authority routed the demonic hordes, and yesterday, although only half done, she was so light inside she just wanted to go and celebrate! We finished the second half this morning, and again, I exercised the authority in the name of the Lord and routed many devils.

Again, God showed his awesome power over distance – and I bless God for the Internet, and for Skype, that made the connection possible. It was great to hear her voice for a change rather than connecting via words on a page! So unfortunately, there is no transcript to post this time, but God has connected me to some wonderful people in South Africa!

One thing that really stood out – when we were battling a spirit of depression, it did not want to leave! We battled and battled for a while, until I called on the angels of war to drag this foul demon out of her. She told me that as soon as I called out “Angels!” she felt this cloud lift off of her – immediately!

Another story – one demon tried to call me out on a particular sin. I had fallen in that area, but had repented before God prior to this ministry time. The demon was trying to shame me – I was ministering to a female, and my wife was also there. But it had the opposite effect: shame is not a part of my make up! I laughed out loud and told that demon, “We are not dealing with me. We are dealing with you! My sins are under the blood… and so are YOU. COME OUT!” In “two two’s”, as we say in Barbados, or within a short space of time, that demon came right out of her!

We battled a flirtatious multi personality as well that she named and renounced before it left – and a spirit of poverty that was on her family through a curse. A spirit of suicide also was on her via a curse, but every one of them were subject to the name and authority of JESUS CHRIST!

HALLELUJAH!!!!

Deliverance and Healing


Coming out of my last post on supernatural stories was a question (keep ’em comin’, Arch!)…

So, how does a deliverance differ from a healing?

As I see it, a healing is where God supernaturally restores the physical body, whereas a deliverance is the restoration of the soul (or inner man.) To me, they are basically the same – in fact, a lot of physical ailments have spiritual demonic roots!

While in Tampa, I was taught in the advanced school of deliverance course that there are a lot of devilish spirits that attack us physically, and some healing cannot be just taken, but must be wrestled from the clutches of the demonic. In a later post (only because I don’t have my notes with me!) I will delve into this topic a little deeper.

Sorry for not posting recently – I’ve been extremely busy … and when I have sat to post… it’s like a giant caterpilllar comes by and eats all my ideas before they get a chance to be put onto the screen! That’s the reason for this uncharacteristically short post, too…. pray for me that the Lord helps me get rest and that he inspires me with what he wants for this blog!

Salvation Testimony: Social Media Salvation!


I know that I had a post to write concerning deliverance and healing – but I have to post this! God constantly blows me away with his power and goodness….

While sitting at my computer today I had a Gmail chat with one of my friends, J, in Africa. She had a young family member, T, who wanted some advice… who felt smothered at home because she is female as well as being the first born. My friend thought about me because she thought there might be some deliverance involved.

After we started to chat, T told me that she’s not the type of girl that can sit and do nothing for long periods of time. Since she’s doing nothing at home all the time, she finds herself disobeying her parents and doing things her friends do. She said to me, “I’m messed up and I need help.”

As she talked I heard the voice of a teenager that wanted to grow up, that wanted to be accepted. It seemed as though there were overall control issues (at least from her perspective) .. I could hear every teenager in her voice “My parents treat me as if I was 15-16 years old. My mother doesn’t let me do anything on my own… my dad gets angry if I want to be treated as an adult…” I know, I’ve been there too, right?

So I told J that I’d be willing to join her in praying for T… and as we started to pray, I started to hear the Spirit whispering “1 Cor 13.” I told T that God was giving her the definition of love! J continued praying and said to the Lord that she does believe that T did need to be reassured of God’s love and the love of others around her. As I assured T of my love for her, I started to prophesy to her…

me: The word says ‘when father and mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up’ in the psalms. You feel as though they have rejected you, have forsaken u, but God is taking u up right now

j: Thank you Father for you are her true FATHER! Onlly u Lord know that T has these Fatherly issues!

me: yes

j: Praise you Lord for using Robert! Continue downloading knowledge and wisdom to him

I continued, words of knowledge and prophecy kept coming:

me: I was praying … she feels abandoned, but the Lord is saying that he will release the spirit of adoption over her. She just needs to accept it

When I heard that, I knew what was coming next – an opportunity for another life to be snatched from Satan’s clutches! So I called her by her name and I said:

T, do u know Jesus Christ? Would you accept him right now? God wants to be your FATHER?

j: T verbally responds – YES I WILL ACCEPT! YES

me: AMEN 🙂

j: hallelujah!!!!

me: Do u believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and do u accept him as your Lord and saviour right now?

j: I sense such an awesome presence Robert!
Yes

me: Well pray this: “Father, I accept your sacrifice and accept Jesus into my life.”
j: Praise you Lord! (T is doing it robert)

me: “I turn away from all sin and believe that my life is changed right now”

j: AMEN!

me: “I accept you, Lord, as my FATHER”

j: thank you Jesus! hallelujah!

me: “And ask you to heal me from the pain of not being fathered properly”
“I Thank you that my life is changed and that my name is now written in the Lamb’s book of life”
“I accept what you have done on the Cross – and I am YOURS! AMEN”

j: Praise You Lord!

From there, I wanted to pray that she gets filled with the Spirit of God immediately:

me: The angels are rejoicing, and so am I! I pray right now that the POWER OF GOD would overshadow T now! SEAL HER with the HOLY SPIRIT! J, place your hands on her for me.

j: doing just that!

me: IN the name of JESUS CHRIST I release the anointing of the Spirit of GOD that she be baptised in the SPIRIT RIGHT NOW. LET HER FEEL THE PRESENCE OF GOD in LOVE and JOY. Let laughter bubble forth from her belly! Remove the spirit of depression! I curse the spirits of suicide. I reject the demons of rejection! IN the NAME OF JESUS
“He gives beauty for ashes and the oil of joy for the spirit of heaviness” Is 61:3
LOOSE HER NOW
EVERY FOUL SPIRIT
LET HER GO
SHE IS NOW A CHILD OF JESUS CHRIST
(tell me what’s happening)

My friend told me that she DID feel the presence of God when we prayed:

j: she feels like a breeze over her

me: lol
keep coming Holy Spirit! that’s the presence of God fill her to completion, to overflowing
tell her to speak out in faith…let the tongues flow NOW. I’m putting my hand on the screen and releasing the power of God through my own tongues now

Then I saw a mini vision:

I just saw something representing sludge being pushed out… she’s being cleaned out from the inside. T, how do u feel, honey?

jady3375: praying with her here!

I continued to pray:

me: the power of God is evident. he is present to heal and to deliver… and to SATISFY. I pray right now that the SATISFACTION of GOD be upon her. That she is satisfied by GOD HIMSELF and not needing men’s approval!

j: Thank you robert- T did expereince the power of God! When i placed my hand on her chest and then her tummy – she felt like a release… like something loosened…………
she will be staying over with me tonight – i will continue praying!

Isn’t God awesome???? I had a final word of knowledge of a personal matter for T, and J confirmed it and glorified God as I prophetically spoke out words of restoration!

GOD IS GLORIOUS!!!!!!! I’m so glad that the Internet can and IS being used to extend the Kingdom of God as easily as this? Thank God for the Internet 😆 – it makes it so much easier to “go ye into ALL the world….” without leaving my seat!
