GWEA Monthly Ministry Report
February 2020
Jesus gave us an incredible promise that we could obtain his help when we ask in prayer to remove the unproductive things in our lives, or the problems that are like mountains that overwhelm us. He said, 
“And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith” (Matt. 21:22). The Greek word for “faith” also means “to trust” or have “confidence”. This means that any person who has come into a personal relationship with Jesus and who can say, like Paul, “I know whom I have believed” (2 Tim. 1:12) has the right to ask for Jesus for help in anything. Jesus promises, “and all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive” (Matt. 21:22). 

Jesus is interested in everything that affects our lives. That is the reason that we invite you to send in your prayer needs: personal, family, work, business, financial, health, church, friends, fellow workers… There is no limitation on what we can ask Jesus to do except those things that are sinful. We believe in Jesus as our Saviour, Lord, Healer, Deliverer and Provider, so we invite you to fill in your needs on “The Prayer Card” 

This is the reason why we invite you to send in your needs: personal, family, friends, acquaintances, business, church and health needs so we can pray for you. If you need prayer, please email your prayer requests and/or post to our "Facebook Prayer Group Page".
And when Jesus has met your needs, please let us know so we can praise Him along with you and "give thanks with a grateful heart!” We invite you to send in your praise reports and testimonies in a "Thank You Jesus Report." This way many others can be encouraged and be ministered to as well (Rev 12:11). Email your praise reports online through our web page. Jesus still does, "signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his own will” (Heb. 2:4). He wants to supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Philip. 4:19).

At an Anglican Church Renewal Committee Retreat where leadership was given by Rev. Andy Leroux, a man who had questioned the place and necessity of everyone needing to speak in tongues, shared the mixed feelings that he had experienced. He said, “One day I am certain of my salvation and the next day I am uncertain. In other words, one day I am sure that my sins have been forgiven and the next day I am not. I live with this up and down all the time, and I don’t think that I can take it much longer.” 
I suggested that it was time to deal with the uncertainty by turning his whole life over to Jesus Christ and allow the Holy Spirit to be his guide and counsellor (Jn. 14:26-28). He agreed. We prayed asking Jesus to forgive him and to Baptize him with the Holy Spirit; to give him the springs of living water (Jn. 7:38) welling up from his heart into his mouth. He gave the Holy Spirit permission to take control of his rudder, his tongue (Mk. 16:17). 
As we prayed, he was filled with the Holy Spirit and immediately began to speak in tongues as he fell to the floor. I kneeled down beside him and told him that he was indeed speaking in another language. The Holy Spirit gave me the interpretation of his tongues. He had said, “Lord, I am your man!  Lord, I am your man! Lord, I have always wanted to be your man. Thank you for making me your man so I can love you with all of my heart, all of my mind, all of my soul and all of my strength. Now Jesus, I AM your man!” He got up from the floor and said, “You don’t understand the importance of that interpretation… I have been praying for many months asking Jesus to make me His man, and now, I am His man.” Thank you Jesus!

A woman in her late fifties explained, “I am suffering from depression. I’m on medication and it doesn’t help.” I told her that this could very well be a spiritual problem, and if she had invited Jesus to be her Saviour and Lord yet. She replied, “Oh, yes I have.” Then I asked if she had received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit yet? “No,” she replied. I advised her that she needed the Baptism of the Holy Spirit’s so He could help her. She agreed. We prayed and she fell to the floor, struggling to speak in tongues.  

Then I heard a gruff voice come out of her saying over and over again, “I don’t want to leave! I don’t want to leave!” Her body began wrenching with epileptic-like seizures. “I command you to leave this woman,” I commanded the evil spirit. “I don’t want to!” was the reply. Then I said, “I command anything that is not of Jesus Christ to leave this woman and go to the abyss.” The woman calmed down and as the evil spirit left, she began to speak fluently in tongues. “What was happening there?” I was asked later. I explained that the Holy Spirit (Lk. 11:13) was in the process of driving the evil spirit out of the person. As a result, the woman was set free and her depression left her (Jn. 8:36).  

A preacher said, “Of the making of many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh” (Ecc. 12:12). Every generation needs to have the Gospel of Jesus Christ explained to them in simple terms so that they can receive Salvation and live the new life that Jesus has promised. People become weary of studying books that do not help them grow. We all have the “hunger for thirst and righteousness”; and desire an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.
Gordon’s book, “Like a Rushing Mighty Wind,” is written for those who desire to accomplish this purpose. It puts in simple terms how to have “the Normal Christian Life” as described in the New Testament. We receive calls every month from people who have read this book and who have followed its directions successfully. Peoples’ lives are transformed; their prayer life becomes exciting; they see the “signs, wonders and miracles (Mk. 16:15-18), and they learn to use the “gifts of the Holy Spirit” effectively. They receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and to do the ministry that Jesus has planned for them (Jer. 29:11).

A couple in their late 50's once asked for prayer for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. We prayed and they began to speak in tongues (Acts 8:17). When they went home, they were praying in tongues all night (1 Cor. 14:18). The next morning, they went to see their pastor and asked him, “Is this normal to be praying all night in tongues?” The pastor replied, “Apparently, for you, it is.” They came back to another meeting to tell us what had happened. He said, “I have been smoking about 100 cigarettes every day, and I couldn’t stop. But after praying in tongues all night, my desire to smoke has gone. Can you explain this?” 

I explained, “Of course! Your smoking habit was trying to satisfy your hunger and thirst for righteousness. People turn to their fleshly ways, or bad habits such as smoking, drinking alcohol, taking drugs, addiction, gambling, etc. to satisfy this insatiable desire. The hunger and thirst for righteousness is the desire we all have to obtain a right-relationship with Jesus. It is important that you pray every day in the Spirit, first in English, then in tongues, and with your mind (1 Cor. 14:15). This way the Holy Spirit can guide you and keep you satisfied daily. That is the work of the Holy Spirit. “Now you can use all the money that you spent on cigarettes for the Lord’s work!” They both agreed.   

Paul tells the Corinthian Church and to us, “The point is this: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully... for God loves a cheerful giver.  And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance so you may always have enough of everything and may provide in abundance for every good work” (2 Cor. 9:6-8). We need “cheerful givers” who can see the need “to preach the gospel to the whole of creation” (Mk. 16:15), and who will help Gordon to harvest people into the kingdom of heaven. Gordon is a “custom combiner” who is able to equip the saints for ministry.
In supporting our ministry with your financial gifts, “God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things, at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” (2 Cor. 9:8). This means that every Salvation, every Baptism of the Holy Spirit, every healing, every miracle, every deliverance is credited to you because of your partnership with Gordon. Please continue to be a “cheerful giver” (2 Cor. 9:7) and prayerfully ask Jesus how you can contribute.
