"Equipping the Saints for Ministry."
“LOOKING AFTER ALL THE NEEDS OF THIS LIFE” (PHILIP. 4:19)
We need to be constantly reminded about what Apostle Paul said in Philippian's 4:19: "And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus”. The scripture talks about "looking after all the necessities (needs) of this life". Things such as Salvation , receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit, getting food, clothing, household and business expenses, healing, deliverance, etc., anything that is necessary to serve Jesus Christ.
I remember a 13 year old girl who once came to me and asked, “Do you think Jesus would fix my teeth?” As we prayed together, she received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and Jesus fixed her teeth. Because of her miracle, her dentist also received salvation, the baptism of the Holy Spirit and healing for his back! When God heals us, we are proof of his amazing grace!
This is the reason why we invite you to email your prayer requests: family, friends, church, etc., for Salvation, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, healing, deliverance, and other personal needs.
Also please contact us with your praise reports when Jesus has met your needs so we can also thank Him along with you!
“EQUIPPING THE SAINTS FOR MINISTRY” (ACT 2:48)
As Jesus said to His first believers, He now says to us who believe, “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to the whole creation (people). He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned” (Mk. 16:15–16).
We are not left as orphans, Jesus provided the "signs, wonders and miracles" necessary to complete His great commission. He said, "..these signs will follow those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues (languages), they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover” (Mk. 16:17–18). When the “signs, wonders and miracles” are present in our witnessing and ministry, people are drawn to Jesus in multitudes, more than we can count.
Today, many want to know Jesus (as their personal Saviour and Lord) and receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the promise of eternal Life. Church surveys prove that the most effective method for reaching the unsaved is by “personal witnessing” and by “preaching the Gospel”. The Book of Acts outlines the perfect model for success in reaching the "unsaved" person.
That is the purpose of our ministry: Salvation and "equipping the saints to serve Jesus Christ for the work of ministry” (Eph. 4:12). It is that simple! More than any time in history, people are waiting to be harvested into the Kingdom of God.
Your monthly support allows us to accept invitations to any church, small or large in any town or city in Canada, USA or any other country. Continue to be a “cheerful giver” (2 Cor. 9:7) and help us increase our ministry. Please pray and ask Jesus what you should do to help.

“ASK AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN TO YOU” (MATT. 7:7)
One young mother asked for prayer for herself and her son, who both had been diagnosed with Alzheimer disease. We prayed and she fell to the floor praying in tongues. After we prayed, I encouraged her to pray daily for healing, first in English and then with her new tongues language.
After, I walked over to a couple sitting at a table nearby. He said, “My wife received the baptism of the Holy Spirit when you were here last year, but I do not speak in tongues. I’m really not sure about it.” His wife nudged him and said, “Ask for prayer for your bad knee." "Oh and by the way," He said, “My left knee causes me a lot of pain!”
I suggested to him that we should pray for his knee and for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit while he sat down. He agreed and first I prayed with him to receive the Baptism, and then for healing for his knee. He began to speak in his new tongues language effortlessly. Then he remarked, “Something strange is happening to my knee!" I explained that the Holy Spirit was bringing healing to it! Praise the Lord!
“PRAISE REPORT FROM DAVID” (LK. 17:15–19)
David had suffered from arthritis for many years and Jesus healed him from his painful inflammation. We prayed together and he received Salvation and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the proof of speaking in tongues. (Jn. 3:5; Acts 2:4; Mk. 16:17–18. ) He sent me his written testimony:
“...I have had the opportunity twice to minister to people who caused me a great amount of trouble for many years. Now that I am Spirit-filled, instead of anger building up inside of me, all I want to do is to help them! I can see how broken these two people were, and the pathway of destruction they are on for themselves and their families. Now I want them to be baptised in the Holy Spirit as well and have them follow God’s pathway for the rest of their lives.” David.
“HIS SIN TOOK AWAY HIS PEACE” (JN. 14:27)
At a meeting of the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship (F.G.B.M.F.I.) in Sudbury, Ontario, a man in his 40’s, who had been waiting for prayer, left the line and then sat down. When I got to him, I asked, “What would you like to have prayer for?” Tears came down his face as he explained, “I have committed adultery just once and I can’t find any peace. I’m afraid that I have lost my salvation and I don’t know what to do.” I assured him that Jesus would forgive him, but that he would also need to forgive himself as part of the healing process.
We prayed together and he asked Jesus for forgiveness, restoration and for his gift of tongues to be stirred up (2 Tim. 1:6). He fell to the floor praying in tongues. When he stood up, he emanated with the "peace of God" (Phil. 4:7) and then he forgave himself. I explained to him not to mention his transgression to anyone else to avoid condemnation 'cause Jesus had just forgiven him. (1 Cor. 13:5).
I also told him that upon remembering his sin, it was not to feel guilty, but to say thank you to Jesus for forgiving and restoring him. "Tears of joy" came down his face, replacing his guilt (Rom. 8:1)! The prodigal son was welcomed home (Lk. 15:11-24)!
“OLD WOMAN FALLS TO THE FLOOR AND GETS HEALED” (MK. 16:17)
At the Family Church in Woodstock, a woman in her 80’s explained, “I'm having problems with pain in my stomach and I have never received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and tongues.” “Well you are going to receive right now!", I reassured her. We prayed together and she did. She fell to the floor under the power of the Holy Spirit while speaking in her new tongues language.
Later I saw several people trying to lift her up off the floor. "She is too relaxed," I explained. “Please do not try to get her up. The Holy Spirit is not finished with her yet." They understood and left her there. When I saw her attempting to get up, I went to see how she was doing. I touched her shoulder, and then she fell to the floor again speaking in tongues! The Holy Spirit was still working on her!
About fifteen minutes later, I saw her up and walking back to her seat. I went over to her and asked, “How are you doing?” She laughed and said, “My stomach is healed!” Amen!
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit and healing is for everyone! (Acts 2:17-18)
If you, your family and/or friends would like to receive either Salvation, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, a Gift of the Holy Spirit, Healing, Deliverance, etc., I invite you come to one of our house meetings or contact me.
Yours in Jesus,
Rev. Gordon Williams

Jesus prophesied about all of the storms, earthquakes, famines, weather conditions, economic failures, wars and disasters we are experiencing today. He said, "And when you hear of wars and rumours of wars; sees that you are not alarmed; for this must take place, but the end is not yet... Jesus warns us about "tribulation" that will cause many believers to fall away, (Matt. 24:9) and about the false prophets who will lead people astray (Matt. 24:11). READ MORE...
The Holy Spirit is the one who catches our attention and speaks to us about what God wants us to do. The Spirit "will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will declare (tell) to you the things that are to come" (John 16:13). He cooperates with God, our Father, who sits on the Heavenly throne. The Holy Spirit is "God inside of us," who stirs and lifts us up to get our full attention, making it possible to hear His voice.

October 31st is known as “Halloween”, a Christian name meaning “Holy Evening” or “All Saints Eve”. As the early church grew, the leadership replaced “all other religious” celebrations and holy days with Christian names that replaced old pagan gods that were forgotten and cast aside. People had mistakenly believed that the devil and the spirits of the dead people and/or demons would be set free to roam around the earth while haunting and terrorizing people. Jesus Christ changed all that when he died on the Cross of Calvary. The dead stay dead, and their souls/spirits reside either in Paradise (Lk. 23:43) or in a temporary hell (called tartarus) until Jesus returns to raise the dead for eternal life. READ MORE...
We all need to be reminded to rekindle our gifts of the Holy Spirit, especially tongues. When we don't use our gifts, anxiety shows up. Because the Holy Spirit is not an aggressive intruder who attempts to dominate and control our lives, He is easily ignored. His respectful gentlemanliness makes it easy for insensitive Christians to forget that he is there, quietly waiting to be our Counselor. Because He is purposefully transparent, wanting people to see Jesus, we often forget, in the midst of our hectic lives, that He is just a whisper away. READ MORE...
Jesus, the "pioneer" of our salvation, was made perfect through suffering. The Greek word for "perfect" means to accomplish the goal or purpose for which a person exists. Jesus accomplished the full payment for our salvation through the Cross and resurrection. He is the One who sanctifies us and sets us apart for holy use. He makes us one with Him through the Holy Spirit who dwells both in Him and in us. READ MORE...
The Holy Spirit warns us not to harden our hearts when we hear His voice - because many of us do. The Israelites did not want to hear God's voice, so they told Moses to speak to them. They were afraid to open themselves up to actually hearing from God themselves - but God's desire was to know His people personally. Many people today are like the Israelites.
Like Pharaoh, they harden their hearts against what God wants. It is astounding to read about how determined Pharaoh was to ignore God, before he finally relented. In the same way, many today really don't want to hear what the Holy Spirit has to say to them, and so they stay away from church services and prayer meetings all together. No matter how "user friendly" a church may appear, people held in the grip of rebellion will not respond. READ MORE...
