GWEA Monthly Ministry Report, December 2018

“THIS IS YOUR INVITATION TO GO FISHING WITH JESUS” (MATT. 4:19)
Years ago, before my ministry began, Jesus came to visit me in person. He spoke to me face to face and said: “I want you to come and work for me; I want you to be a fisher of men, and if you will follow me, I will meet all of your needs according to my riches in glory.” Through the years, I have found that He has done just that, and far beyond my expectations! He proved to me that He was better than His promise, (Matt. 4:19), and that His promise is the same for everyone. Jesus told His disciples as He tells us, that it necessary to bring all people to Him regardless of their age. He also explained that the "fishing net" is composed of two nets: the first net represents Salvation (forgiveness of sin), and the second net, is the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, along with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit (Rom.12:6–8; 1 Cor. 12:6–8). Jesus gave his disciples (who were fishermen), a lesson in fishing for real fish. They had worked all night and still they couldn't catch even one! But when they followed Jesus’ advice, they caught 153 large fish, and they couldn't even haul them in with help! (Jn. 21:4–11) Jesus’ methods of evangelism always work when we follow His directions.
Please help Gordon continue to harvest nets full of "people" fish so that His home in Heaven can be full (Lk. 14:28). Just like fish, people don’t want to get caught because their sins cause them not to be saved. This is evident when clergy deny the scriptures and say that they are not for today (Matt. 22:29). We have to start fishing for men, women and children by preaching the Gospel regardless of people’s reactions. Do it Jesus’ way and help Gordon to fill His house in the New Jerusalem with saved people fish!
Your prayers and financial support allow Gordon to accept invitations anywhere in Canada, the United States, and in other countries; in churches small and large, and without a ministry fee charge. His ministry is done on the basis of love offerings, and his praise reports are shared every month here in this newsletter. Your continuous support helps Gordon to harvest the fields that are ripe and ready (Jn. 4:35).
Please pray and ask Jesus what you should do to help and become a partner with Gordon (Phil. 1:5). Throughout the remainder of 2018, please help to increase the harvest of people of all ages into the Kingdom of God (Jn. 4:35).
(All offerings and gifts are income tax deductible. Income tax receipts are sent out during February 2019.)
“HELP US TO SHARE CHRISTMAS” (MATT. 25:31–46)
Every year we receive requests at Christmas to help people who are in need from Canada, the USA and other countries. These people includes Pastors, Christians, individuals, children, married couples, the sick, unemployed, and senior citizens. We ask you to pray about making a special gift, in addition to your monthly support, to our ministry to help those who cannot help themselves.
Remember that your generosity continues to enable us to meet every request. Please ask Jesus what you should do to "share Christmas" this year. Jesus encourages us when He said, "In as much as you have done it to one of the least of my brethren, you have done it to me. (Matt. 25:40).
“THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IS FOR EVERY ONE” (GAL 3:28)
At a meeting in Saint Paul’s Presbyterian Church in Ocoee, Florida, a forty year old man said, “I want to be saved.” He fell to the floor speaking in tongues. Then a 13 year old teenager explained, “I don’t want to go hell. I want to go to heaven!” We prayed and he fell to the floor speaking in tongues. A man in his 30’s told me, “I have committed iniquity! I have committed adultery! I told him, “Yes! But you need to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit so you can resist temptation.” He agreed and fell to the floor speaking in his new tongues language. Two girls aged eight and nine asked, “Can we please receive the Holy Spirit and speak in tongues?” I said, "You most certainly can!” A fifty year man asked, “Can Jesus forgive a Jew? I have done many bad things. Can I be saved?” I told him that Jesus died for Jews and non-Jews. We prayed for his salvation and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and he fell to the floor speaking in tongues.
To deny any of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit denies the New Testament. They are the “weapons of our warfare” (2 Cor. 10:4) including “signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his own will” (Heb. 2:4). These are the greatest Christmas gifts that we could ever receive! They open our ears to hear God’s voice, and they guide us daily! If you have not received the Good Gift of the Holy Spirit, please contact me. You will discover that you can have an exciting Christmas and receive the Holy Spirit with His wonderful and exciting gifts! Have a wonderful and blessed Christmas!
“IT’S ABOUT JESUS” (ACTS 2:21)
At a church in Florianopolis, Brazil, a rough looking man, unshaven and in his 60’s explained, “I need to get right with God but I don’t go to church.” I told him that this has nothing to do with going to a church. It`s between you and Jesus, and if Jesus wants you to be involved in a church, He will tell you. That surprised the man! We prayed together and he received Salvation and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and as he began to speak in tongues, he dropped to the floor in a sitting position!
“HE RECEIVED THE CERTAINTY OF HIS SALVATION” (ACTS 19:6)
At the Presbyterian Church in Camburio, Brazil, a twenty eight year old young man said, “I am a Christian but I would like to have the certainty of my salvation every day." I asked him, “Have you received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit yet?” He said, “No, not yet.” I told him that he needed to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit so that every day his tongues language would be a constant reminder to him that his name was written in the Book of Life (Rev. 3:5). We prayed and he fell to the floor praying in his tongues language. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is the down payment for heaven, and he got his proof when he prayed in tongues!
“MINISTRY ON THE TELEPHONE” (ACTS 2:21)
I received a telephone call from a woman in Ethelbert, Alberta, who was referred to me by a friend who had come all the way to our House Meeting in Mono, (Orangeville) Ontario. The women couldn't travel to Ontario, but she wanted to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. "How can I receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit?" she asked. Much to her surprise I said, “We can do it on the telephone right now!” We prayed together and with ease she was baptized with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in her tongues (language)!
“HIS FIRST TIME” (MK. 16–20)
Praise report: "David Jewel, from Beaverton Ontario, visited me on Sunday as we are old friends. I told him I was fighting a cancer and that it will take my life in the not too distant future. David laid his hands on me and prayed for my illness (1 Cor. 14:4) to be taken from me. He spoke in tongues while also baptizing both my wife and I. He admitted that this was his first time.” (Testimony sent by David’s friends after he visited them!)
“BRING THE LITTLE CHILDREN TO JESUS” (MK 10:13-15 )
One time during ministry, I tripped over a little girl. I didn’t notice the two little seven year old girls who were kneeling behind me. I asked them, “Did you want to have prayer so you can be filled with the Holy Spirit and speak in a new special language?” They both nodded their heads saying, “Yes!” Both girls prayed with me for forgiveness and for the bad things they had done. I prayed with them and they were both baptized with the Holy Spirit and spoke in their tongues languages as they fell to the floor.
Do you have questions about the Holy Spirit and need answers? Do you need prayer for Salvation and/or for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit? I invite you come to one of our house meetings or contact me to request prayer and guidance.
