Jesus' disciples asked him an interesting question, "Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples" (Lk. 11: 1). Most people would think that teaching His disciples to pray would have been a priority. They didn't understand that just talking to Jesus was prayer because He is "God in the flesh" (Jn. 1:14). Only after Jesus arose from the dead did His disciples understand this (Jn. 20:28). He also told them that it was necessary for Him to send the Holy Spirit who "will declare to you the things that are to come" (Jn. 16:13). In other words, the Holy Spirit will tell us what Jesus has planned for us.
"THANK YOU FOR "SHARING CHRISTMAS" (MATT: 25:40).
"THANK YOU FOR YOUR PARTNERSHIP IN THE GOSPEL" (PHILIP. 1:5)
Again, during 2014, we have seen more ministry - Salvations, Baptisms of the Holy Spirit, healings, deliverances and answers to prayer than in any previous year. It has been your faithful prayer and financial help that Gordon continues to be free to accept invitations from any church of any size in Canada, the USA without charging fees. This also allows us to provide Bibles, literature, books and CD's to help people grow in their relationship with Jesus and learn how to cooperate with the Holy Spirit. Thank you for your "generosity" which produces "thanksgiving to God" (2 Cor. 9:11). Please pray and ask Jesus what you should do to assist Gordon in his ministry.
"AN AMAZING GRACE READING MIRACLE SIGN" (MK. 16:20)
At the Full Gospel Church, Edmonton, AB, a 40 year old man came for prayer when I gave the invitation. He said, "I can't read very well. I don't know how to say the words that are in the Bible. I asked him if he was a Born-Again Christian and he told me that he was. I asked him if he had been filled with the Holy Spirit so he could speak in a tongues language and he had not. So thinking of my friend Doug, who had the problem of not being able to read, I told him that he needed to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit Who could help him to read fluently the Scriptures but also any book. He had never heard this before. So he agreed and we prayed asking Jesus to Baptize him with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in his new tongues language (Acts 2:4) so he would be able to read the Bible and anything else he needed to read. He burst into his new language. Before leaving the meeting, he borrowed somebody else' s Bible and discovered that he could both say the words that are in the Bible but could understand them.
"THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IS FOR ALL WHO ASK" (ACTS 2:38)
"NEVER TOO LATE" (ACTS 2:17-21)
"RESERVATIONS IN HEAVEN CONFIRMED" (EPH. 1: 13-14)
At the Warden Full Gospel Assembly, Scarborough, Ontario, a couple in their 50's were holding hands and crying. He said to me," I need to have my sins forgiven so I can go to heaven." I asked him if he would also like to receive the Holy Spirit and he agreed. We prayed and he received salvation (1 Jn. 1:9) and for him to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and began to speak in his new tongues language (Acts 2:4). Then I prayed with his wife to rededicate her life to Jesus and she prayed in tongues with her husband.
"DECLARE HOW MUCH THE LORD HAS DONE FOR YOU" (LK. 8:39)
While sitting with two friends in Tim Horton's Restaurant in Orangeville, Ontario, four people came to our table. One man said to me, "You probably don't remember me but I remember you because of your laugh. You're Gordon Williams aren't you?" I asked him, "Who is it that, I don't remember? He laughed and explained, "The last time we met was at the Full Gospel Businessmen Chapter in Oakville about 21 years ago when my wife had been in a terrible car accident. She was wearing a full body cast on her upper body and she had gone to the meeting and received prayer for healing. Her doctor told us that she might have to wear the body cast for up to 2 years. That night, after having prayer, she was totally healed. Because of this, this man had become the Pastor in a church in Oakville, Ontario. Praise the Lord!
"THE HOLY SPIRIT RENEWED HER STRENGTH" (IS.40: 31)
A 30 year old mother asked for prayer: "I am a single mother of two children. I am exhausted and I need God's help. "I asked her if she had invited Jesus to be her Saviour and she said, "Oh yes, of course!" I asked her if she had received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and she had not. I explained that the Holy Spirit would give her power to cope with the children and renew her strength. She said, "That's what I need!" We prayed and she was Baptized with the Holy Spirit and received tongues. She brought her children to the evening service for prayer.
"WE WANT TO BE EQUALLY YOKED" (2 COR. 6:14)
A couple in their 30'said, "We hope to get married. We want to be equally yoked. The woman explained to me, "I am baptized with the Holy Spirit and he is not." He agreed. I explained further that to be equally yoked means that both of you need to not only to be saved but both need to be Baptized with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues so the Holy Spirit will be able to speak to both of you and give you guidance in your marraige. Without this, we cannot have God's "agape" love (1 Cor. 14:4-8) poured into our hearts (Rom. 5:5) so you can know God's plans for your marriage. He agreed. I want the Holy Spirit in our marriage. We prayed and he received the Holy Spirit and began to speak in tongues. She was renewed in the power of the Holy Spirit and I had them both pray in tongues together. Now they are ready!
"THE MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IS ALWAYS "SPECTACULAR" (HEB. 10:4)
At a new Church Meeting in a Banquet Room in downtown Quito, Ecuador, arranged by my friend and interpreter, Rodrigo Garcia, there were 40 people in attendance. The Pastors explained that everybody had received salvation but with the exception of the 2 pastors and 2 other people, none had received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. When, I gave the invitation for prayer all received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and fell under the power of the Holy Spirit (Is. 28:13) speaking in tongues (Acts 2:4). A woman who had 2 large cysts on her ovaries was healed as she received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. A man who couldn't stop stuttering when he talked normally was healed when he received the Holy Spirit and received his gift of his tongues language. One of Pastors described the ministry of the Holy Spirit as "SPECTACULAR".
The Pastor of a Church that meets at the local university along with his wife and son came to say "Goodbye at the airport." He reported that in their service 350 adults plus 8 children and themselves at a previous meeting had received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4) during their Sunday Service.
"EVERYTHING! EVERYTHING! EVERYTHING! (MK. 16:7-18)
At the Prayer Palace in Toronto, Ontario, a 33 year old woman responded to the invitation for prayer. When I asked her, "What would you like to have prayer for? She boldly said, "Everything! Everything! Everything! Salvation and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit so I can speak in tongues (Jn. 3:5; Mk. 16:17). We prayed and she received "Everything as she fell to the floor speaking in her new tongues language (Acts 19:6). This is the reason why we can invite you to send your needs: personal, family, acquaintances, Salvation, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, business difficulties, church requirements, etc. to us so we can continue to pray for you!
