“NOW HE KNOWS!” (2 TIM. 1:12)
Once I asked a man in his 30's, “What would you like to have prayer for? He answered, “I don’t know!” Then, I asked him, “Have you been born again as Jesus said?” He answered, “I don’t know!  I asked him, “Would you like to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit?” He answered, “I don’t know!” I asked him, “Why do you not know?” He replied, “This is the first time I have ever been in a Church.” I asked him to pray with me and receive all that God had for him. He agreed and received Salvation, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit (Acts. 2:4) and began to speak in tongues. Then he started to laugh and said, “I can’t stop laughing because I feel so good.” Now he knows!  
PRAY WITHOUT CEASING” (1 THESS. 5:17)         
The Apostle Paul learned very quickly that he didn’t need a set of prepared or printed prayers to memorize or use when he needed to pray. Having met Jesus on the Road to Damascus, face to face, made him realize that he was confronted with the mighty, living God. And when he received the Holy Spirit three days later, he learned that he couldn’t take God for granted - it was necessary to hand over to Him every need, every day.
Like James said, “You receive not because you ask not” (Jas. 4:2). Prayer is simply talking to our Heavenly Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit (all are the same and one person). He can tell us His plans for our lives and meet our needs. Above all, He does not want to be taken for granted. “If you then who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him (Matt. 7:11). To “pray without ceasing” means that every time we think of our problems, we need to turn them over to Jesus, not because He is slow but because we get impatient and get anxious while He is working things out for us. Jesus is always available to us 24 hours a day.
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).

I met with a couple in Tim Horton’s Restaurant in Newmarket, Ontario. During our discussion, the man whom I had just met for the first time, shared with me that he had originally been raised in the Salvation Army and had heard about what they called the “Second Blessing”. The “First Blessing” was and still is Salvation, where the “Second Blessing” was and still is the “Baptism of the Holy Spirit”. He had heard about it but nobody could ever tell him how he could receive it. “Have you heard of it?” he asked. “Yes, it used to be discussed and encouraged in most of the churches a hundred years ago but most churches had stopped encouraging people to receive it,” I replied. I also mentioned that the founders of the Salvation Army, William and Catherine Booth, not only experienced it, but encouraged their people to seek and receive it. 

I asked him, “Would you like to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit?” He said, “I most certainly would!” I told him that Tim Horton’s was a good place to do ministry, and so, “If you would like, I would like to pray with you to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.” He agreed. We prayed and he began to speak with his new tongues language (Acts 2:4; Mk. 16:17). A little while later, he went to the men’s washroom and came back and said, “I can feel my toes! As a result of diabetes, I have suffered from neuropathy, which has caused my feet and toes to be numb.” The Holy Spirit brought healing along with the “Second Blessing”. 
I once received a telephone call from a Realtor in Orangeville who explained that he had a house for sale but couldn’t get anybody interested to make an offer of purchase.  He prayed about the problem and said, “The Holy Spirit told me that there was an evil spirit in the house that caused people to not be interested in purchasing the house.” He then asked the woman who owned the house if she had noticed any spirits in her house.  She replied, “No!  But I have a ghost in the house and it talks to me sometimes.”  He asked her if it would be alright to call his Pastor, who is me. She agreed. When I met the owner, I asked her how she knew there was a “ghost” in the house.  She explained, “It talks to me and sometimes I talk to it. It bothers my dog. It causes my telephone to ring when nobody is calling, and the smoke detector to ring even when it has no batteries.” 

Such a “haunted house” is called a “stigmatized property” and must be told to prospective buyers that it is occupied by spirits/demons or the purchaser can get his money back. I went through the house, room by room, and cast the ghost (evil spirit/demon) out and sent it to the abyss (Lk. 8:31). Now, the house is “destigmatized” and safe to be sold. Only Christians who have the “signs following” (Mk. 16:17) can cast evil spirits out of people and houses (Lk. 214-26). Such a failure is recorded in Acts 19:13-16.   

I received a telephone call from a woman I had met some years ago. Her daughter, Tara, had died and she called to ask me if I would conduct the funeral for her. I agreed. Her son came from France to be with his mother. When I met her 45 year old son, she said, “You have met Gordon before. When you were 7 years old in a church service you received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, were slain in the Spirit, and spoke in tongues.” Surprised, he said, “So you were the minister at that meeting! It was one of my best memories. I remember it as one of the highlights of my life. I have always wondered who that minister was… And it was you! Thank you!” “And that’s not all that happened that night,” Beverly remarked, “You said a word that someone who was deaf in her right ear was going to be healed. I said, ‘I’m claiming that for me.’” She had put her hand on her right ear. “So when you prayed for me, my ear was healed. Also, I was baptized with the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues. And Tara was also saved and baptized with the Holy Spirit”.     

Gordon is constantly asked, “When do you think Jesus is going to return?” He knows what Jesus said, “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only” (Matt. 24: 36). Anyone who claims he knows is a “false prophet”. Surprisingly in Revelation 7:9, we are told exactly when that will happen. It will only happen after the total number of people are saved, and Jesus’ house will be filled as He described (Lk. 14:23) in the “Parable of the Great Banquet/Marriage Feast” (Matt. 22:1-14; Lk. 15:23). The total number saved is “a great multitude which no man could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and tongues” (Rev. 7:9). Gordon figured that the approximate capacity for the New Jerusalem (Rev. 21:16) is 10,062,038,469,466,665,620,000 people! Try to imagine that! That translates into 10 sextillion, 062 quintillion, 038 quadrillion, 469 trillion, 446 billion, 665 million, 620 thousand people! Until today, the total of people who have ever lived on earth is only about 8 billion people. There are many more Salvations to be had and every salvation brings Jesus’ arrival one step closer.
