God’s Secret Weapon

Did you know that God has a secret weapon? A force so powerful that it routs the Kingdom of Darkness. Its strength is in the element of surprise. The enemy never sees it coming and by the time he understands what’s happening, it’s too late. I’m talking about a NewBreed of Christians that will cut their teeth on destroying the works of the enemy. I’m talking about an army of trained Mighty Warriors that live to heal the sick, cast out devils, raise the dead and preach the Gospel of the Kingdom. The best part is - they’re kids. Little guys anointed with the same Holy Ghost that raised Jesus from the dead. When you unleash them on the powers of darkness, they win. The element of surprise and their simple faith is so potent that the enemy doesn’t stand a chance.

From the beginning, the enemy has feared the young warriors. That’s why he had the children slaughtered in the time of Moses and time of Jesus. That’s why he’s slaughtering them today through abortion. He fears a deliver. More than that, he fears an army of powerfully anointed deliverers. But they have escaped slaughter and the Lord is raising an army of Mighty Young Warriors. We saw a taste of what they can do this Sunday.

For years we have had kids serve in every area of church life. They can’t drive a car or even stand tall enough to see over the steering wheel, but they can get you healed and delivered! We have a bunch of testimonies of the result of kids’ prayers in prayer lines and in our children’s ministry classrooms. Most of our outreach crew is young people, but teenagers, not the kids I am talking about here. We’ve even taken our kids out to “safer” places like the malls and grocery stores. They have done miracles and healed the sick. My friend David Walters calls it the “Laying on of Sticky Fingers”.

But this week I decided to up the ante. I wanted to see how some of our kids would function in a hard core ministry situation. How would they do in downtown Atlanta? How would they fare against incurable diseases? They’ve done great with church folks and buttoned up suburban types, but what about drug addicts, prostitutes and the insane? Would they wilt under the heat or shine like the sun?

They did awesome. In my group alone, we saw 7 miracles in under an hour. Everyone we prayed for except one received an instantaneous healing. Pain left, cripples walked and the poor had the good news preached to them. Two of the better miracles we saw were both people crippled by disease.

The first lady was probably in her forties. She was totally jacked on some drug and obviously mentally unstable. She had a nice, shiny new walker that she was using and we found out it was due to a blood clot in her leg. Several days before, she noticed swelling in her leg, followed by severe pain and immobility. Since them, she had only been able to walk with great difficulty. I told her about this great Kingdom of God where there are no walkers and severe pain and asked if the kids could pray for her. Her pain was a 10 on a 10 point scale.

The kids prayed, calling down the fire of God to burn out the clot, rebuking pain and commanding life into her legs. She started to crumple under the power of God and when we asked her where the pain was at she said, “I feel MUCH better!” When we had her check the pain, it was at a 4, down 60%! We prayed again and she again wilted under the power of God. When she checked it this time, the pain was at a 2. We prayed one final time and all of the pain left her body. The kids with me asked her to stand and with a little help at first, she got up and walked! Another one of our teams also prayed for her and got her delivered of some demons but before we left, we witnessed her walking perfectly WITHOUT THE WALKER!

A guy at the bus stop where we were praying for the lady with the walker asked what we were doing. While the kids prayed, I told him about the Kingdom of God and how all pain and disease will go when the kids pray for him. He said he was already born again and quickly asked for prayer. He told us that he had a lump in his chest that was causing severe pain. The doctors had yet to find out what it was, but you could tell that the guy was freaking out, probably thinking it was cancer. The kids laid their hands on him and he started swaying under their touch. He instantly broke out into a sweat. I asked him what was happening and he told me that he was getting very hot. I said, “Heat is good!” and the kids continued to pray. He had to sit down and when he did, he turned green. I asked him what was going on and he told me that he was very nauseous. I recognized this as spirits of death and fear and told the kids to cast it out! They cast out the devil and his color and countenance returned to normal. When we asked about his pain, we found that it was all gone!

A few minutes later, we saw an elderly woman walking up the sidewalk with the aid of a cane. She was taking forever just to make a few steps and was in obvious pain. We asked her what was going on and she told us it was rheumatoid arthritis in both her legs, but it had nearly crippled her right leg. She was in a lot of pain and rated her pain at 7 out of 10. I told her that we had just seen God heal several people minutes ago and told her about the Kingdom of God. She was a believer and she joined us as we prayed. The kids called down the fire of God, rebuked the arthritis and pain and the lady started praying in tongues! It was great; there we all were on the sidewalk, having a Holy Ghost Hoedown! We had her check the pain and she rated it at a 2! We asked if we could pray again and she agreed. The kids fired it up again and lady almost fell out in the Spirit, I actually had to prop her up as they prayed! We had her check again and all the pain was gone! She still had a very slight limp, but that was due to her crooked legs, not pain. We asked her to walk and she walked away, pain free and zipped right up the sidewalk.

PS – For some reason, neither the lady with the walker nor the lady with the cane would allow us to have their instruments of death. I’m still not sure why. Maybe they plan on getting sick again?

California Trip Report

I know the updates have been sparse since the end of the year, but it’s not because there isn’t anything going on! The miracles, healings, signs, wonders and salvations continue. God is still delivering the oppressed and saving unbelievers. We finished 2005 by getting into 15 neighborhoods and since the end of last year we have been having meetings with new believers, strengthening the work and consolidating our efforts. My family was also able to take a week’s vacation after Christmas and enjoy a much needed break from the action. Ministry and revival is work, make no mistake about it!

Several months ago we received an invitation from friends of ours in California to come out for a weekend, go out on the streets and do a few meetings with them. These are the same guys we hooked up with last August and we really feel a connection in the Spirit. We just returned from the trip and while exhausted, we are thrilled at what the Lord did on the trip. Lots of healings, salvations and a whole bunch of Christians ignited with the fire, power and glory of God.


Actually, while we were there, in every ministry opportunity, the fire of God was the theme and the manifestation. The ministry times in the meetings were CRAZY as the fire of God fell again and again. Without even praying for people’s healing, they were getting healed. I believe that several deaf ears opened and many injuries were healed instantly. On top of that, a cool thing happened on the morning we left. Wildfires broke out in and around the area(s) we were in while in town, aided by strong desert winds. These winds and fires burnt houses down, ignited brush fires, overturned big rigs on the highway and in one town we did an outreach in, palm branches were ripped from the trees and covered the ground. Sound familiar? (John 12:13) We thought so too. The best part was that there were no injuries reported.

I actually believe that it was a token and a sign that the Lord is really coming in a powerful way to Southern California. The fire of God will break out and burn the brush and refuse. The winds will blow and topple all the “big rigs” on the highways. I believe that this speaks of the highway of holiness in Isaiah 35:8 and the “big rigs” represent the large ministry vehicles that right now, are just cluttering things up. The palm branches went down on the road before Jesus came entered Jerusalem and they went down in Santa Ana last night. Jesus is coming to town and the good news is that He is bringing His Kingdom with Him!


On of the coolest things I personally witnessed on the trip was watching the Lord undo literally generations of the enemies work in a few minutes. One of the nights we were there, we went with the team from the church on one of their regular Friday night outreaches. They go to a local outdoor mall where several thousand people will gather and mill around on a typical weekend night. It’s an awesome opportunity as literally dozens of nations and religions are represented in their demographic. Everyone from psychics, Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists are there to greet you and your message of the Kingdom. We’re actually jealous and would love a place like that in the Atlanta area.

While cruising the mall, we ran across a group of Asian kids. A couple people on our team started talking to them and telling them about the Kingdom of God. They were pretty receptive, although a bit freaked out at our boldness. We found out that several of them were Buddhists by upbringing. They were raised in a family where generations have believed, lived and died as Buddhists. They started with this “there are many ways to God” attitude when we first started talking to them, but quickly, the Holy Spirit changed their mind (repentance).

The Lord gave us a few words of knowledge about their personal giftings and callings that got their attention, but what really “sealed the deal” was the manifestation of the power of God. While I was talking to them, I got hit by the power of God and was getting drunk in the Spirit. I couldn’t help it, it just happened! They were noticing my speech start to slur and my body bobbing and rocking “under the influence”, so I simply asked them, “want to feel something cool?” They were like, “Sure”. So I and the lady I was with put our hands on them and released the power of God. One of the guys looked at the hand that was laid on his shoulder with these huge, wide eyes. He said, “It’s REALLY hot!” The guy I was praying for instantly got super light headed and starting bobbing and rocking just like me. I asked him what he was feeling and he slurred (imagine talking to a drunk) “szzzlight … ummm-headed?” I said, “It’s good isn’t it?” He said, “Ohhh yeah!”

I jumped all over the opportunity and asked them if they ever got a demonstration like this from Buddha. I asked them if a Buddhist had ever read their mail prophetically and released a tangible manifestation of power on them. They said emphatically, “No way!” I started telling them that this whole “there are many ways to God thing” is totally wrong. I told them that Jesus was the One who showed us things about them prophetically and that Jesus was the One who was manifesting His power. I also told them that Jesus said Himself that He was the only Way to God. I told them that Jesus claimed, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, NO ONE comes to the Father but by Me.” I then told them that either Jesus was a liar and a nut, or He really was the One and Only way to God! I emphasized that by simply stating, “What you have been told was wrong. You have got to change the way you are thinking.” They nodded in agreement and we were able to lead them to Jesus right them and there.

We didn’t have to bend their arm, we didn’t have to convince or argue, we just simply demonstrated the power of God and they fell to the Gospel like wheat to a sickle. Generations of the devils work were undone in a few minutes.

Ex-Buddhists. I really like the sound of that.

"And Jesus went up into a mountain and called near those whom He would. And they came to Him. And He ordained them, that they should be with Him, and that He might send them out to proclaim, and to have authority to heal sicknesses, and to cast out demons." - Mark 3:13-15

All over the earth, the Saints are being trained and equipped in ministry. Bible Schools and seminaries are full of believers wanting more from their Christian experience. Great books have been written and read. Great sermons have been preached and digested. But where are the Mighty Warriors? Where are the Dead Raisers? Where are the Miracle Men and Women, the Sons and Daughters of God that walk in the power of the age to come? Where are the Dread Champions that will take their knowledge and put it to work?

We believe there is a remnant in the church that is no longer content in only learning, but they are ready to "DO" the Gospel! We believe that the church is over equipped and under challenged. So we are issuing an invitation to you to come and "DO" the Gospel. You don't need to hear another message. You don't need to read another book. You need to pick up your sword and get to work. The Harvest is NOW!



April 21st - 23rd, 2006

Go here for the details.


The MIGHTY WARRIOR POWER SCHOOL is an eight week program where you will preach the Gospel, Heal the sick, Cast out Devils, Plant Churches and Make Disciples 5 days a week. This IS NOT teaching in a classroom environment, this is REAL LIFE "On the Streets" training. There will be some classroom instruction, but it will be much more "Show You" than "Tell You".

Go here for complete course description.
