"PRAYER IS JESUS COMMUNICATION SYSTEM" (1 THESS. 5:17)
With prayer, Jesus is as close as the mention of His Name. But He wants us to be persistent and to keep coming to Him. Paul wrote His promise in Philipians 4:19, “And my God shall supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus”. James tells us, “You do not have, because you do not ask.You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions” (Jas. 4: 2–3). Jesus promises to meet our “needs” and not our “greeds”. He wants to help us to be able to complete the plans He has for us: plans for good and not for evil to give us a future and hope (Jer. 29:11).
“A NEW HUSBAND AND FATHER IS A MIRACLE (2 COR. 5: 17)
At a meeting in Camrose AB, a man came for prayer. His breath was heavy with the smell of beer. Through tears, he confessed, “I want to be a good father! I’m sick and tired of being a drunk!” He prayed with me and received Jesus as his Saviour and received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and fell to the floor speaking in tongues. He received the “New Wine” (Acts 2: 13). Two weeks later, his wife telephoned me to say, “I have a new husband because when we got home from the meeting, he took 3 cases of beer out of the trunk of his car and dumped all the beer on the ground. And he hasn’t had a drink since. He is praying with us in English and tongues. Thanks to Jesus for my new husband!” Our children keep saying over and over again, “He’s a miracle!” And he is!
“PARTNERS ALLOW OUR MINISTRY CONTINUE TO GROW (PHILIP. 1: 3-4)
Gordon, like Paul, is “thankful for your partnership in the Gospel from the first day until now” (Philip 1:5). Your faithfulness has resulted in more people receiving Salvation, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, healing and deliverance each year. 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. His praise reports are shared every month in this newsletter. Your continuous support helps Gordon to harvest the fields that are ripe and ready (Jn. 4:35).
WHOSOEVER CALLS ON THE NAME OF THE LORD” (ACTS 2:38)
At a meeting in Wasaga Beach, ON, 6 teenagers – 2 boys and 4 girls were standing together waiting for prayer. When I asked them what they wanted to have prayer for, one said, “We would like to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.” Then they prayed together with me, “Jesus please forgive me for my sin and Baptize me with the Holy Spirit.” They did and I laid hands on each of them, one at a time, and they all fell to the floor speaking in their new tongues languages (Acts 19:6).
NO HUMAN PERSON TOUCHED ME (ACTS 2: 38; MK. 16:18)
The first time that I did ministry in Ecuador, a pastor reported that a woman from his church had prayer yesterday for prayer for healing of a torn anus. She was facing surgery. She explained that when I had laid hands on her neck and head to pray for healing, she felt like two hands touch her bottom. She fell to the floor speaking in tongues and found out that she had been healed. But there was no human person touching her.
SHE RECEIVED EVERYTHING THE LORD HAD FOR HER (ACTS 2:4)
At our Carrick Camp Meeting, a woman in her 60’s explained, “I have been a Born Again Christian for many years but I have never experienced the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. I want everything that the Lord has for me.” I said, “Well tonight you are going to receive everything that the Lord has for you.” We prayed and she burst into her tongues language and fell straight down to the floor. Praise the Lord! She got everything the Lord had for her.
HEAR WHAT THE SPIRIT SAYS (REV. 2:7)
A man in his 30’s who had escorted two women to the altar at Carrick Camp, both of whom received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in the promised new tongues language came to receive prayer for himself. He explained, “I want to have prayer so I can hear the Holy Spirit speak to me every day.” I asked him, “Do you pray in tongues every day?” He answered, “No!” I explained that it was necessary to pray about everything in English and in tongues throughout the day and he would hear the Holy speak to him (Eph. 6:18; 1 Cor. 14: 14–15).
NOW HE’S READY (ACTS 1: 8; ACTS 2:4)
At the Temple of Praise Camp Meeting at Curve Lake, ON, a man in his late 30’s explained, “I believe that God is calling me to be a pastor but most of the people that I know tell me that I’m not qualified and God can’t use me.” I explained, “First of all, none of us are qualified. Secondly, God does the choosing not the people we know. Thirdly, you need to be saved and Baptized with the Holy Spirit so you will be able to study and get prepared.” He said, “I’m a Born Again Christian but I’m not Baptized with the Holy Spirit yet.” I told him, “We are going to fix that right now.” We prayed and he was Baptized with the Holy Spirit and fell to the floor speaking in tongues (Acts 19:6).
SURPRISED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT (1 COR. 12:8)
SURPRISED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT (1 COR. 12:8)
At the Victory Family Church, I was led to give several “Words of Knowledge” (1 Cor. 12: 8) with the result that people for whom they were given, responded and came to receive prayer. A woman said, “I’m claiming the Word of Knowledge for healing of my lower back. She prayed along with me in tongues for agreement and fell to the floor. She stood up with her back healed. A man in his 70’s said, “I think that I’m the one who needs healing of my ears.” I asked him, “Have you received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit?” He asked, “Would it help me?” I said, “Yes.” We prayed and he fell to the floor speaking in tongues and said, “I can hear better!” A woman who responded to a word of knowledge for healing of her heart also asked if she could have prayer to receive the “Gift of Tongues”. I said, “No problem!” We prayed for both and she began to speak in tongues and the pain in her heart disappeared.
HE HAS IT ALL! (JN. 3: 5; ACTS 2:4)
At a meeting in Athabasca AB, a 24 year old man came for prayer and I asked him, “What would you like to have prayer for?” He said, “I need it all!” I asked, “What does that mean?” He answered, “My dad told me that the devil is after me. How do I deal with him?” I asked him, “Are you saved and Baptized with the Holy Spirit?” “Yes”, he said. I asked, “Do you speak in tongues?” “Yes”, he said. I explained, “Then you have it all. Everybody has to deal with the devil. The Scriptures say, “Rebuke the devil and he will flee from you (Jas. 4:7). You have nothing to worry about as long as you are not rude or reviling toward him. So, you have it all! So, now you need courage and boldness.” We prayed and he fell to the floor praying in tongues. I called a man over to pray along with him whom I did not know turned out to be his father.
THE NIGHTMARE WAS OVER (MK. 16:17)
At the Prayer Palace in Toronto ON, a couple brought their teenage son for prayer. He was shaking uncontrollably and made weird noises with his mouth. His father explained that they had taken him to doctors and other pastors for help but they could not help him. It has been a nightmare living with him since this started. I explained, “Jesus can help him!” I then commanded the demons (Mk: 1: 23, 27) to leave him and go to the Abyss (Lk. 8:31) and they immediately left him. I then prayed with him to receive Jesus as his Saviour and receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. He began to speak in tongues, had self-control and was set free.
