MONTHLY MINISTRY REPORT
REVEREND GORDON WILLIAMS, SEPTEMBER 2016
“PRAYER IS SIMPLY TALKING TO JESUS” (LK. 11:1-13)
Jesus reminds us that, “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) But His generosity goes even far beyond that. He says, “ He will give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him” (Lk. 11:13).
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 (Philip. 4:19).
Also please contact us with your praise reports when Jesus has met your needs so we can also thank Him along with you!
“THE DAY OF PENTECOST IS EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR” (ACT 2:48)
The Book of Acts shows us that there is no one day of the week or month, that anybody cannot receive Salvation and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. He moves upon large meetings: 3,000 people (Acts 2: 41), whole churches (Acts 8:17), one person (Acts 9:7), a household (Acts 10:44), and 12 people (Acts 19: 5–6).
Sometimes people receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit alone while others require the laying on of hands by somebody who has been given that ministry. The proof of having received the Holy Spirit is always the same: the Signs (Mk. 16: 17–18). To have complete assurance, believers require both components of being "born again" (Jn. 3: 3, 5, 7).
Anyone can receive Jesus as their Saviour and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. It is that simple! Today, more than any time in history, people have been waiting to be harvested into the Kingdom of God. Let’s have the greatest Harvest in 2016!
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.

“IT WAS ‘OKAY’!” (ACTS 19:6)
At the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship (FGBMFI) Meeting in Sudbury, ON, a teenager said, “I would like to ask Jesus for whatever He has for me.” I asked, “Have you received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit yet?” “No, I have not!” he answered. “Then, that’s where we need to start. Is that okay?” “Yes!” he replied. He prayed with me and received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and burst into tongues” (Acts 2:4).
“BORN AGAIN OF WATER AND THE SPIRIT” (JN. 3: 5,7)
At a meeting in Welland, ON, a woman escorted her daughter to receive Salvation and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. I asked her daughter, “Is this true?” Through some tears, she agreed. We prayed and she received Salvation and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and began to speak in tongues (Mk. 16:17–18). I asked her mother if she needed prayer for anything. She replied, “No, I just came to encourage my daughter. I’ve been saved and Baptized with the Holy Spirit for many years. Praise the Lord!”
“THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS” (JN. 14:26)
A 50 year old woman said, “I want to hear from God. I pray in tongues and I never hear Him speaking to me!” I explained to her, “He was probably speaking to you but you didn’t recognize it.” I asked her, “Have you ever had recurring thoughts to do something that you would not normally do?” She replied, “Oh, yes, all the time!” I explained, “That’s the main way the Holy Spirit talks to people from within.”
I then asked her, “Did you ever do what those thoughts told you to do?” She answered, “I did not because I thought that it was only my own crazy ideas.” “No!” I explained, “The next time it happens, follow the instructions and see what the Holy Spirit is telling you. Also write them down so you will not forget them. Remember that the Holy Spirit is inside you in your heart. You were mistaking the Holy Spirit’s thoughts for your thoughts (IS 55:8). Then you will be able to do what Jesus commanded the 7 Churches to do. “He/She who has an ear, let him/her hear what the Spirit says to the Churches” (Rev. 2:7, 11, 17, 29; 3:6, 13, 22).
“The chief danger that confronts the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, heaven without hell.”
William Booth – the founder of the Salvation Army. (JN. 3:5)
“THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL NOT BE MANIPULATED” (IS. 55:8)
At a meeting in St. Thomas, ON, a man in his 40’s said, I need to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.” I prayed with him with the laying on of hands and asked him not to speak in English or any other language he could normally speak so the Holy Spirit could give him the Gift of Speaking in Tongues (Acts 2:4). He said, “That isn’t what happened in the house of Cornelius! (Acts 10:14–17). I responded, “This isn’t the house of Cornelius! This is the house of John!” He wanted to argue and I said, “Go and read Acts 8:14–17; 9:17; and 19:6, where it was necessary to receive the Holy Spirit with the laying on of hands. We cannot choose the way that the Lord is going to minister to us. He went and sat down. At the end of the ministry time, I went over to him. With some encouragement he agreed to let me pray with him to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the laying on of hands. And much to his surprise, he easily began to speak with the tongues-language which the Holy Spirit gave him.
“A JOY UNSPEAKABLE AND FULL OF GLORY” ( 1 PET. 1:8)
At a Business Men’s Fellowship Meeting (BMF) in Gananoque, ON, a woman with her daughter, brought her 16 year old grandson for prayer. She explained, “He can’t talk. He is autistic!” I asked him, “Have you ever invited Jesus to be your Saviour?” He shook his head, “No” and mumbled something. I asked him, “Would you like to?” His grandmother said, “He can’t talk.” I told her, “Watch what Jesus is going to do.” He shook his head, “Yes!” and mumbled again. “Would you like to receive the Holy Spirit into your heart so you can speak in a new language?” He mumbled and shook his head, “Yes!” I asked him to pray along in his mind as I prayed with him. And when we had prayed, he began to speak in tongues! I then asked his mother, “Have you received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit yet and she answered, “No”. We prayed and she received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and she also began to speak in tongues. Grandmother stirred up the Gift of Tongues which she had received just as Paul told Timothy to do (2 Tim. 1:6–7). Praise the Lord!
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

The Holy Spirit is not a coward - nor does He cause people to act like cowards. He develops strength in us. We need to have the same strength that enabled Jesus to die on the Cross, walk through death and come back into life again. The Holy Spirit gives us the same courage that Paul exhibited throughout his prison term. He takes away fear and replaces it with His power. READ MORE...
When Timothy received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, like Paul, he may have received the charismatic gift of speaking in tongues (languages) which would have been the normal initial evidence (Acts 2:4; Acts 15:8; 1 Corinthians 14:18). Like many of us, he did not use his gift. Problems arose... READ MORE...
The key to serving Jesus Christ, regardless of our circumstances, is knowing Him and recognizing the pattern He established for us through His life, death and resurrection - and through His Word. The Holy Spirit holds that key. "Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to Him"
(Romans 8:9). READ MORE...
Paul warns that these last days are perilous times in which to serve Jesus Christ. Counterfeits abound. Any true Christian can spot counterfeit Christians. They might look just like normal, religious people, but that's the problem - they are normal religious (but not Christian) people. Outwardly, they look like Christians; they attend church services and go through all the motions, but are simply self-centered manipulators who take advantage of other people in the Name of God.

The Scriptures are technically the Word of the Spirit of God (Acts 1:16). They are "God-breathed" or "theopneuso." The Holy Spirit directed the authors in writing them. They are given so that we will have correct doctrine about God and not fall prey to a false religion. READ MORE...
