Going Out With A Bang! - PART I

A couple of week ago was our last Friday night football game outreach at local high schools and we went out with a bang! Kids got healed, prophecy was flowing and nearly 60 people gave their lives to the Lord, on their knees, in front of all of their friends. The spiritual hunger of this generation is intense.

Once again, I asked the young ladies that were at the center of it to give their account. We’ll probably do this in two parts.



Okay, here's my part...

One pretty cool thing about this night was that, for me, the past 4 or 5 weeks I had gone out, nothing really happened. Maybe a healing or two, which is awesome, of course. But then I get back and another team has like 20 something healings and a bunch born again, etc. So I really wanted a good night, especially since this may be the last game this year for us.

Long story short, I talked to the Lord about it and He basically said that I would have to do it, I would have to step out and be bold and He would back me up. So we had a deal. I'd jump in a group and be bold and He'd back me up with prophetic stuff, etc. Erin had this same word too, so we just jumped right in as soon as we got there.

Erin first approaches this group of probably middle school, maybe younger, kids. She just yells "Hey guys!! I have something to tell you!!" This gets their attention, but only a few came over and listened... about 3 or 4 girls. So we start telling them what we're doing and prophesying to them. Sure enough, as soon as we asked them if we could tell them what God was showing us (at which point I had nothing), He instantly showed me something.

From here on, for me, it's all a blur. We were prophesying left and right, and about 3 or 4 times, I look over and all the kids we had prophesied to were getting on their knees, and the kids we were prophesying to wanted to do it too! So we all got down and they all confessed Jesus as their King (loudly!) and invited the Holy Spirit to come.

This goes on for a while and I thought we should start praying for the kids for God to touch them. So I start with one, Erin and Stephanie jumped in and started praying for a bunch of others, because nearly ALL of them wanted it... Especially after 2 or 3 of them were going "I feel it! I feel it!!"

As we were praying for them to be filled with the Spirit and fire of God, they were falling back. So much so that we had to pull them back towards us as we held their hands. Some said they felt intense heat on their heads, some said they felt electricity going up and down their spines, some felt tingling, etc.

Another cool thing was, a few times as I was standing there prophesying and praying for people, I had this "automatic mouth" thing going and I was thinking at the same time as I was prophesying, "I don't even know what I'm saying... This must really be God". Haha.

That's basically it. Nothing specific. It was just so much and it came so quickly. We also got kicked out. A cop and some authority from the school told us not to touch them and that the religion thing is the same as in school, etc. So we kept talking to them (because they said we could do that), and we prayed for them without touching them. They lifted their hands the same way and they still felt it and were falling back. But again, they came back and told us that we couldn't even talk to them about this stuff and that we should probably just leave because this wasn't the place for that (wrong!).

Okay, I know that was a lot... Sorry. I'm so excited. :)
