What would it take to make a Christian Nation?
REVEREND GORDON WILLIAMS, FEBRUARY 2018
“THE NEED FOR WORKERS TO MINISTER THE GOSPEL” (MATT. 9:35–38)
Jesus travelled throughout the cities and villages teaching in synagogues, preaching the gospel, and healing every disease and infirmity. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send more laborers into his harvest" (Matt. 9:38).
Jesus is the same today as He was yesterday! He is still equipping the saints – those who have received Salvation and the authentic Baptism of the Holy Spirit. When we witness to others with testimonies using the “signs following” (Mk. 16:17–20), the Gifts of the Holy Spirit; and with signs, wonders and various miracles (Heb. 2:4), people get saved and healed! Amen! (Rom. 12:6–8; 1 Cor. 12:8–10)
We have the best harvest when we share our personal testimonies with others. Where ever I travel, people tell me they seek to find churches where the miracles are really happening! The good news is that in our ministry, we have many churches where the miracles are happening! A list of our house churches are here.
Gordon continues to receive invitations to minister and preach the gospel all around the world. Because of your prayerful help, he does not charge fees to these churches or ministries that invite him, regardless of their size. Like the Apostle Paul, Gordon is led by the Holy Spirit, and asks for a love offering gift to allow him to continue to accept invitations anywhere in the world.
Please pray and continue to be a “cheerful giver” (2 Cor. 9:7) asking Jesus how you can contribute. All offerings and gifts are income tax deductible. Income tax receipts are sent out during February 2018.
Please continue to help us to increase the harvest of people of all ages into the Kingdom of God (Jn. 4:35).

“WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO MAKE A CHRISTIAN NATION?” (ACTS 1:8)
E. Stanley Jones, a missionary in India and a good friend of Mahatma Gandhi (who led India to independence), asked Gandhi an important question, “What would it take to make India a Christian Nation?” He answered, “For Christians to live like Jesus Christ. Then people could not resist becoming Christians.”
People need to follow the advice Jesus told the demon possessed man upon healing him:
“Go home to your friends and tell your friends, and tell them how much the Lord has done for you and how he had mercy on you” (Mk. 5:19)
This is what it will take for not only for Canada, but all nations - to be a witness and give testimonies to everyone; living a life just as Jesus Christ did.
”If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (2 Chron. 7:14)
“ONCE AN ATHEIST, BUT NOW A CHRISTIAN” (ACTS 2:21)
I was invited by a couple in Burlington, Ontario, to their home for supper. After we finished eating, the husband came right out and said, “I'm an atheist!”
“Great!" I said, "I love to talk with atheists!” Relieved that I didn't get upset, he asked me many God related questions about Jesus Christ, and about being a Christian. He claimed to have prayed "the sinner’s prayer" at least 3 times, and also, that he had read my book, “Like A Rushing Mighty Wind.” Turns out, he was eager to enter into a relationship with God, but just needed answers to all his questions.
To fulfil his request, we prayed together for his Salvation and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. With a little encouragement, he started to speak in his tongues language. Then we asked Jesus to heal his eyes. The evening ended by discussing the various ways that the Holy Spirit talks and gives guidance.
His wife who was already a Christian, couldn't believe that her husband had received so easily. She was amazed. God prepares our hearts for Salvation in advance. That is why we need to witness for Jesus continuingly, in and out of season.
Jesus said, "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day." (Jn. 6:44)
“PERSISTANCE ALWAYS GET’S JESUS’ ATTENTION” (LK. 11:8)
At the Prayer Palace in Toronto, Ontario, I asked a man in his 60’s, “What would you like to have prayer for?” He had a disappointed look on his face. “I’m not sure!” he answered. “Have you received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit yet?” I asked. “No”, he replied, “but I’ve had prayer for it six times now, and I never received."
“Well you are going to receive it right now,” I said assuredly. He asked, “How can you be so sure?” “Because I just said so! You will receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit right now. Trust me!" I said, "I know Jesus and He is faithful!”
He prayed along with me for forgiveness of sin and to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Slowly he started to speak in his new tongues language. Then he said in disbelief, “I think I’m making it up!” “No!" I remarked, "You're starting to speak in tongues. Speak louder so I can hear you,” I encouraged him.
He spoke out louder and within minutes, there was real clarity in his voice. But then suddenly he stopped, and again he questioned, “Are you sure I really received?” Once more I assured him, “Yes!” Then I gave him the interpretation to his tongues that the Holy Spirit imparted to me.
Upon hearing the interpretation, his face brightened up and his eyes became aglow with the Spirit (Rom. 12:11). I explained to him how most people who receive the Holy Spirit think they are making something up. It is mainly because it is a new experience. His eyes began water as he listened. Then he rejoiced, “Praise the Lord!"
Yours in Jesus,

Jesus Blessed Beef!
A man called into the office of "Cannington Veterinary Services" where Dr. Brent McLaughlin works. Brent shared this praise report with us:
"I attended a farm where the owner was a devout Muslim. I had been on this farm many times before, and hesitanted to pray out loud to Jesus due to the potential persecution. But after reading many accounts of Muslims in the Middle East being brought to Jesus, I decided I would step out in faith. I asked the owner if it was okay to pray to Jesus for the healing of his steer. He didn’t say no and I didn’t belabor the point, but went ahead anyway and laid hands on the large animal. First, I prayed out loud in English, and then in tongues for healing. I commanded any unclean spirits to leave and go to the abyss (Lk. 8:31).
As I reached out to administer the treatment to the steer, the animal suddenly regained its energy, and ran off to be with the rest of the herd! I tried to catch him again to complete my examination, but was unsuccessful. Praise the Lord for his quick healing, and for the powerful witness! Amen!"
Set free from a Smoking Addiction! (Gal. 5:10)
At a Full Gospel Meeting in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, a man in his 40’s explained, “I want God’s help to stop smoking.” I asked him if he had received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues (Acts 2:4). He replied, “Oh no, I need that too.”
I assured him that when he received, he would have the help he needed to stop smoking. He agreed and we prayed together. He received, and then he began speaking in his new tongues language (Acts 2:4).
Smoking like all bad habits, I explained to him, is an attempt to satisfy what Jesus called, a “hunger and thirst for righteousness” (Matt. 5:6). "Righteousness" means a right relationship with God. I advised him that whenever he got the desire to smoke again, to pray in his new tongues language for as long as it takes to smoke a cigarette. Then the desire to smoke would eventually leave him.
And more importantly, not only would the Holy Spirit help him to never smoke again, but He will show him God’s plan for his life (Jer. 29:11). He agreed to follow my advice! Amen! The Holy Spirit is our guide and counselor!
The Holy Spirit Equips Us with a Healing Ministry.
At a meeting in Millet, Alberta, a young man in his 30’s asked us to pray for his grandmother who was living with his family. The woman was in great pain and had a bad heart.
I asked him, “Have you ever received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit?” He answered, “Until tonight, I didn't even know the importance of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit!” He agreed and we joined together in prayer. He received the Holy Spirit and his tongues language (Acts 2:4) without any difficulty. Then we prayed for his grandmother’s healing.
Afterwards, I pointed out to him that those who are Baptized in the Holy Spirit acquire a healing ministry with the "laying on of hands" (Mk. 16:17-20). I encouraged him to lay hands on his grandmother as often as possible and pray for her healing (Mk. 16:18). With a big smile he said, “Yes, I will certainly do that!
"'SPIRIT-LED DAYS' - DAY BY DAY WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT" is one of the most inspirational, detailed and theologically studies on the Holy Spirit. Using a daily devotional format, the reader is led step-by-step, day-by-day, into a study of what the entire scriptures reveal about the person of the Holy Spirit.
