By Erick Miguel Poaty Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year for me. I just love the smell of it, the songs, the spirit of it. For other people I do understand it is the worse season of the year.
By Prophetess F. Deborah: Unconditional Love will activate true burden for an Efficient Prophetic move of Intercession. The “Agapao Love” is the ultimate expression of God’s loyally, purity, and mercy extended towards His people in order to give us the ability through Love to cover a multitude of Sin and to walk in the power of forgiveness (Prov. 10: 12; 1 Pe. 4:8).
“Censered Material” by Dr. Judy Laidley is the founder of Pray Around Nations - which is an intercessory ministry dedicated to bringing the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ around the globe through strategic intercession. As a missionary to the nation of Brazil, Dr. Laidley understand even better than many the importance and the place other nations will play in the promised “latter rain revival” in the United States of America.

By Erick Miguel Poaty:
I recently heard in the spirit that my church and I had entered a “Prophetic Zone” ! The realm of the spirit becomes more tangible unto us, we can see Him moving in strange ways, miracles are kind of easy to happen. There is a greater expectation and anticipation in the room; You can literally see the shekinah of Glory surrounding the sanctuary.
This is a special faith undertaking project the Lord recently placed upon our hearts to do. It is our prayer that it’s going to be a BLESSING unto His children and that it will a Voice of Destiny to mankind everywhere. So it is our joy to bring to you the good news of the Gospel and provide you with divine tools to help on your way to your Destiny. Erick Miguel & F. Deborah
I don’t know about you but Christmas for me is truly the “best time of the year”! It is the season where every heart is expecting something, there is something good in the atmosphere; I love the songs and play them all day; my kids and I sing them, from the “jingle bell to the little baby Jesus”...I truly love the Christmas Spirit. Now don’t get me wrong, I do understand that technically there is no 100% proof that Our Lord and Savior was born on that very day; but to think that the whole world would come on one day to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is for me a big deal. Why is it a big deal you may asked? Because in the celebration, there is an acknowledgment of the person and so therefore of His mission: TO SAVE US ALL!!! I understand that things have gone so commercial that many have lost the “spirit of Christmas”; I understand the fact that many kids don’t get every presents they will have love to, however we the church need to remember that JESUS IS STILL THE REASON FOR THE SEASON - and that He is the BEST GIFT EVER. Someone may say, “preacher, how can you say that Jesus is the BEST GIFT EVER? People around the world are dying with hunger; some with sickness and disease; we hear of wars on almost every continents! If Jesus truly came to save us all what is going on then?” Dear friend, you have to remember what happened in the Garden of Eden - “God created Man and gave him dominion over everything.” He put him in charge of “cultivating and guarding” the Garden of Eden.
an was the epitome of God’s creation, he was his trusted man and so therefore, God relin-
quished upon Adam the responsibility to duplicate the Garden’s atmosphere everywhere on the surface of the earth as he would fill the earth. He was responsible of protecting the Garden from its enemies but unfortunately we were deceived by the serpent. So I know this is like reminding you of one of your first lesson in the Sunday School, but it’s very important that you grasp what happened in the Garden of Eden in order to understand God’s position as far as every evil and ills that are committed daily on planet earth. We made the wrong choice by saying - Yes to the Devil and by falling for his deception. Paul in the book to the Romans puts it this way, “for we all have sinned and therefore fall short of the Glory of God” (Rom. 3:23) It doesn’t matter your background, it doesn't matter your profession or confession, you and I were born sinners and therefore can’t no longer function within the “Glory of God”. Meaning that every decisions and actions done on this earth is first of all the manifestation of our “free will” and not God who is in “control of everything”. Imagine your child blaming you for breaking the cookie jar that you expressly forbade him to touch; just because you placed it on the kitchen table! People usually ask, “if God knew, why will He put the tree of evil and good in the Garden?” So let me ask you the same question, “since you know your kid so well, why are you leaving the cookie jar on the kitchen table and then you forbid your child to touch it?” I see some people saying, “but at least I gave them one or two cookies and don’t want them to spoil their appetite”. But that’s exactly what Our Father and Creator did; He gave us His “Image and Likeness”; He made us like Him. And for the devil to come and tell Adam and Eve that “You shall become like God” was the silliest trick ever. But just like the little kid we wanted the forbidden cookie. Now let’s imagine that our little mischief goes on eating so much cookies that he has some stomach problems do you as the parent gets blame for it? I don’t think so. So why are you trying to put the blame on God for the evil decisions and every evil acts committed by people who don’t want to listen to Him even through
By Erick Miguel Poaty their conscience? Why would you blame God for the evil acts of a father molesting his own child? Why do we blame God for the drunk pilot who crashes his airplane? Or for the terrorist activities? Is God happy about the whole situation? No He is not! Just like you will not be happy about the broken cookie jar, the stomachache etc...but what you gonna do but to find a solution for your child right? That’s exactly what God did - “For God so Love the world that He gave His Only begotten Son…” (John 3:16) - God’s solution was to bring us back into our element: His Glory. And the only way to do that was to give us the best Gift Ever: Jesus Christ! He is the “special glue” that will put the cookie jar back in its former state without leaving any open cracks. He is the solution to Man’s biggest virus - Sin! For the Word of God states that, “the wages of Sin is death…” in other words whatever is done out of a sinful mind result unto death! And that death is first of all spiritual, then moral (in your soul) and then physical. Some people feel like everything they touch or do always ends badly - they seem to never accomplish something they could be proud of!
But the same Word declares that, “the Gift of God is Eternal Life through our Lord Jesus Christ”. In other words, God has given to each one of us the opportunity to return to Him and experience living the “Eternal Life” right here on this planet earth. You can function again like God for you can receive His same kind of life. You and I have the opportunity to receive in us God Himself, not just be His image! Isn’t this the best Gift Ever? He will not just fix and mend the cookie jar, but He is going to fill it up with Himself! Woooooo I am so excited. But just like every gift, you can’t enjoy till you open the gift box and start using it. How do I do that? How do I open my gift? By opening your heart to Him. Instead of blaming God, your parents, or even yourself why don’t you just open your heart and receive His precious Gift? It will be a lifetime change, but a Great change. Just repeat this simple prayer with sincerity of heart and Merry Christmas: “Dear Father, I acknowledge my need for a Savior. I understand that Jesus is Your Gift to me in order to fix the broken jar and fill me up with eternal life. I am opening my heart today to accept Him as my Savior and forever Lord, Thank You for the BEST GIFT EVER!” Amen.
Prophetess F. Deborah Poaty 1. THE ESSENCE OF INTERCESSION. A) How God sees Mankind: The Word of God tells us in Genesis chap. 1 v 26-27 “God said, let us [Father, Son and Holy Spirit] make mankind in our image, after our likeness and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the beast and over all the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth.” Before we talk about the origin of the Intercession, it’s very important to understand the position of Mankind in the heart of God. After creating everything else and declaring that it was good, God then called a special meeting of the members of the Divinity (Let us) - He then tell the vision which was: “Let us make Man in our Image and our Likeness”. Through this declaration, we can see the position and how valuable we are in God’s eyes. He breathed in the nostrils of man in order for him to become a living soul, in other words, God breathed Himself into Humanity and then He BLESSED them by saying to them, “Be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth, and subdue it [using all resources in
the service of God and man] and have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air and over every living creature that move upon the earth.” Gen.1:28 He therefore empowered Mankind with the ability to Dominate. Dominion comes from the Hebrew word Radah - it grant us Mankind the right of responsibility to: Rule and Govern the rest of God’s creation. Dominion establishes a hierarchy of power and authority in which the human race is positioned above the rest of the natural realm. The word Radah always refers to dominion over our enemies (Luke 10:v.19). Such dominion is not limited only to the spiritual realm but as well the Social, Political and Economic control. I know that some devils love to remind you that Adam and Eve lost that position after the fall, but we need to be reminded that Jesus Christ regained it for us through the Cross and gave us even a higher position in Him We are seated at the right hand of God in the heavenlies (Eph. 1:v. 3). Now that we have established the strategic position of Mankind in God’s heart and in the Universe let us talk about the essence of the Intercession:
B) John 3 v. 16 “For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that he gave up his only begotten Son, so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (Amp.) Let us talk about three important words in this verse: Love, Give and Perish. In the book of Isaiah 62 v. 1 the word declares, “Because I love Zion, because my heart yearns for Jerusalem, I cannot remain silent, I will not stop praying for her until her righteousness shine like the dawn and her salvation blazes like a burning torch.” In the reading of this scripture we also see three words - Love, Righteousness and Salvation. In the book of John chap. 3 v. 16, God saw that the world was perishing and His answer was to give. In Isaiah through the Prophet, God saw that Salvation and Righteousness were absent from Jerusalem. Wholeness was missing in Jerusalem, just like now with some believers. Why was it God’s concern? Because of the same reason mention in John chap. 3 v. 16, His Love! Now what kind of Love does the Word talk about? certainly not the Eros or the Phileo Love; but certainly the “Agapao Love”.
“Agapao meaning: to love unconditionally, to esteem, to cherish, to favor, to honor, to respect, to accept, to prize and to be devoted.” C) Understanding what create the Burden: Through the explanation of Perish, Righteousness and Salvation, we can have a true understanding of how the burden of intercession is created. Perish: It comes from the heb. Word Appolymenoi - which means to be exposed to the eternal death; it also speaks for staying in the desert. Now we do understand that God’s unconditional love could not allow us to be exposed to an eternal death. Righteousness: Matthew chap. 6 v. 33 says to “seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be given to you.” We are encouraged to place righteousness on our top priority list, unless we don’t want to enjoy a livelihood of abundance. Salvation: It means to be delivered from great distress by the intervention of God. The knowledge of these three concepts help us and create in us a true burden that is activated in us through God’s unconditional Love. Because of that Unconditional Love, God gave His Son who died on Calvary so we can become the Righteous of God, and that we shall inherit Salvation and not Perish. His burden was activated through God’s unconditional Love. Unconditional Love will activate true burden for an Efficient Prophetic move of Intercession. What is Unconditional Love: 1 Cor. Chap. 13 v 4-7 “ Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud, or rude. Love does not demand its own way, Love is not irritable and it
keeps no record of when it has been wronged, it is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out, Love never give up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”
ANAM’S MENTORING SCHOOL
The “Agapao Love” is the ultimate expression of God’s loyally, purity, and mercy extended towards His people in order to give us the ability through Love to cover a multitude of Sin and to walk in the power of forgiveness (Prov. 10: 12; 1 Pe. 4:8). When working as an Intercessor in the ministry of Intercession, ones needs to understand the essence of Intercession. Unconditional Love is not the product of our feelings but it is a divine empowerment that the Holy Spirit deposit in us in order for us to comprehend the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ and our strategic position in bringing the unsaved unto Salvation, the Righteous unto Wholeness.

By Dr. Erick Miguel Poaty Part 1. Since the times of our forefathers there has been a desire to know God in a very intimate way. Such desire is not just on man’s side, God Himself yearns for His children to know Him; He revealed Himself to Our father Abraham. God’s revelation to His people was essentially done through the revelation and the manifestation of a particular name that will reveal and manifest His character to His people. In the book of Exodus chap. 3 v. 13, a shaking and fearful Moses asked God a very important question: “Then Moses said to God, behold I am going to the sons of Israel and I shall say to them, the God of your fathers has sent me to you. Now they may say to me, What is His name? what shall I say to them?” Though Moses was impressed by the demonstration of powers and certainly by the magnitude of God’s calling upon him, He asked God to tell him in whose name was he supposed to go to speak to the children of Israel! The name of God was to be his proof to the children of Israel that he truly had an encounter with the God
of Israel. The name was the code that would open up the heart of the children of Israel. The miracles were for Pharaoh and his people but the Name of God was for the children of Israel. In other words, though we may see powerful miracles, God wants us to know Him through His name not just through his manifestations. Now the Hebrew word “EL” comes from a root that means “might, strength and power. In the scriptures, the primary meaning of this root are “gods” (which is referring to pagan or false gods and sometimes it is referred to mighty men or to angels), “God” (the true God of Israel). In this article we will study some of the construct names of God in the word: 1. El Echad: The One God The God of the Bible is the Only One God. Out of Him there is no other gods Who revealed Himself to the people of Israel and know to us through Christ Jesus His Only begotten Son. 2. El Hanne’eman: The Faithful God - (Deut. 7:9) When your parents, your spouse, your social status would disappoint you, God is Faithful. He will never change on you, He will never disappoint you. Jesus said “I am the same yesterday, today and forever”. He is a faithful God that will never abandon you.
The word says that “even when a mother will abandon her own child, I the Lord will never abandon you”. He is a Faithful God. When I was epileptic and that my parents couldn’t do anything for me, God the Faithful One healed me. 3. El Emet: The God of Truth: (Ps. 35:1) Though God can do anything and that there is nothing impossible to God, the Bible tells us that He cannot lie.; for He is the God of Truth; He cannot lie and so therefore the Word of God is the Truth!; and because of this we know therefore that we can trust on the surety of His words. Whatever He says it is settled. Jesus told us to pray to The Father so that “His will be don on earth as it is in heavens…”. Because of His truthful nature everything El Emet says it is the Truth and therefore cannot be altered. If the doctors or lawyers are saying one negative thing, the word of God declares, “Who’s report do you believe?” I don’t know about you but I rather believe and rely on El Emet! For His truth is like a shield and a buckler. It is the belt around our loins. Page 8
4. El Tsaddik: The Righteous God (Is. 45:21) The great thing about Our God is that before He ask of us something, He already supplied it for us. Since God knows that we can never achieve righteousness on our own, He has become our righteousness through Christ Jesus. We don’t have to fight to become righteous, He has made so in His Son. Wow, isn’t this marvelous? You and I have a right standing with God and before God. You and I can do things God’s right way. Because His name is El Tsaddik the Righteous God. 5. El Shaddai: The All Sufficient God (Gen. 17:1). The Name El Shaddai has been translated “God Almighty”, which does not yield 100% the revelation behind that specific name. God told Abraham that He was and still is the All Sufficient God - He is the God of More than Enough for His children. We see many children of God settling today for less than or for just enough; when actually The God of our forefather Abraham revealed Himself as the God of More than Enough. El Shaddai also speaks for “The Breasty One” giving the idea of a mother nurturing and caring for her child - Our God takes care of us. Jesus says in John 10:10, “ the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy but I have come so that you may have life in abundance, to the full till it overflows”! The devil is the one causing you all calamities and trying to restrain you in the land of lack and missing! BUT
Jesus on the contrary is promising to us a life with an abundant supply so that we can fulfill the God given mandate to our father Abraham: “To be BLESSED so we can become BLESSING unto the nations of the earth.” I remember the numerous time He has abundantly supplied to my family needs and even to my ministry, especially in the beginning: we fell short of our rent and went on owing over ten thousands of dollars on our church rent. I didn't know what to do but call upon Him. And one day, seating in the front of the television a famous preacher began to talk about his traveling to the country of Nigeria. I heard the Holy Spirit telling me to give $400.00 towards the trip in question. Struggling to obey I still did and two weeks later, the owner of the property forgave us for the whole amount of $14,000.00. As the world system of financial and social prosperity is falling apart, we need to remember that Our God is the God of More Than Enough! He is the “Breasty One” who will take care and nurture His children even now just as He fed the Israelites in the wilderness. Praise God that we are not alone. If you read the story of Abraham, you wll find out that his life turned around from chapter 17 of the book of Genesis! And I am perceiving by the Holy Spirit that this had to do
with the application of this powerful revelation about El Shaddai, The All Sufficient God, The God of More Than Enough. 6. El Elyon: The Most High God (Gen. 14:20; Ps. 9:2) Another thing about Our God is that He is not just “a God”, He is The Most High God! He stand alone in His class as the Creator of all flesh, spirits and the rest of creation. He stand alone in his class as the Redeemer of all mankind in the sense that, God “so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son” as a redemptive sacrifice. He stands alone in His class in the sense that He gave us the Holy Spirit Who is here to teach us and lead us in all the truth. Our God is the Most High and if you have ever been touched by Him, you will know that you know; for ounce you have met with The Most High, there is nothing that can bring you as higher as He is. However even though He is the Most High God and that He is as High as, He came to us in a form of a servant to share His love and reconcile with us His lost children.

In the material world, we, as blood bought believers contain materialized powers that the world would like to CENSOR by suppressing and repressing the Church. Become aware of some tactics the enemy uses to stamping "CENSORED: upon your calling. The bible tells us in Revelations 8:3 “And another angel came and stood at the alter, having a golden censer: and there was given unto him much incense that he should offer it with the prayers of the saints upon the golden alter which was before the throne.” All nations, kindreds, people, and tongues stood before that throne. (Rev. 7:9) We are “censered material” being the materialized power of prayer as incense (Rev. 5:8) that fills the golden censor. The emphasized power of prayer is being spoken to the American Church body today. This voice of prayer is coming from other nations and tongues into this country. In the golden censer spoken about in Rev. 8:3 we have an amalgamation of pray-ers from every tribe tongue and nations. In this hour of world crisis, coupled with this countries spiritual crisis, we have the choice of becoming a cencored group (suppressed or repressed) or being the cencered group of amalgamated praying People. It is because I see a lack of UNITED prayer that I write this article. As I write I am prophetically speaking into your life to break every chain coming from the arch censor of our souls. Only united fervent prayer can change what I am speaking to you about. If ever there was a time when God’s children should cry day and night to Him, it is now. The closer God’s people become one with each other, the more alike we will be in our praying. This practice of fervency will become the power to change the world not just this nation. Let me express the “prayer practices” first. I have observed the American church, the African American church, and the International American church
In all three of them there are practices that need to be “united” into becoming the fervent prayer changers for this generation. The day will come when the most populated location in all churches, homes, and offices will be the PRAYER ROOM or LOCATIONS GIVEN FOR PRAYER. The Church will surpass those who, fives times a day pray on their Holy locations called prayer rugs. The growth will be due to the “unified” Body, practicing fervency in prayer. The day will come to the Church that the practice of prayer will cease being taught, and begin to be caught. Ministers will begin to prioritize prayer in their churches as the first (Alpha) all the way and after the benediction is spoken. (Omega) From the very youngest to the oldest will be expected to show up for prayer. Then the young will “catch” prayer and the old will in will “catch” vision from the young going to all the world with the gospel. Then, the first will be last and the last will be first. The practice of “all night prayer” will evolve out from and transform the “home group” gatherings. The emphasis of “getting to know you” in the home group gatherings will evolve into “GETTING TO KNOW HIM AND THE POWER OF THE RESURRECTION”. If the spiritual foundations are weak, we are going to be weak in the global harvest. Life challenges will all be met through a new and revived prayer practice in the Body of Christ.
1. A marriage that is not strong. 2. Having a financial weakness 3. Being in organizations or relationships that are inhibiting development. The three mentioned challenges can place a numbing censor on church life. Life challenges can hinder the Lord’s call on our lives. As disciples, we are to “Go Ye into all the world”. To be numbed means that we no longer feel pain. When we don’t feel the heart of our Global Father who hurts for the lost of the whole world, we produce the “fun feelings” of our church activity only.
Joseph’s wonderful dreams were processed by family censors. The dreams were to place him at the top, to affect the then world! But the process led him to prison time, sufferings, and seeking a way of escape. Power release came to him through the King breaking the suppression and repression over him. The King of Kings stands ready to break off the chains that bind the Church. When freed, we will see the manifestations of the Glory of the Kingdom giving:
1. Honor in the church. 2. Strength in the family. 3. Wisdom in education. 4. Power and authority revealed in government. 5. Blessing revealed in media. 6. Glory and creativity revealed in the arts. 7. Riches of the nation being cultivated in business. We are censered material. The union of nations in this country is the key to empower the Church worldwide. Empowering and filling us with true prayer revival comes by bending the knee for Kingdom blessings giving us a new sense of oneness. I sense a true censering taking place.

The Spirit Flows Apostolic Ministries and Business Network In the Gospel according to Matthew 16:18 he records a quote of a statement that Jesus made concerning Jesus purpose in establishing and the continuation of the church. Jesus said “on this rock I will build My church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. In a time of great uncertainty in our society and in light of the prevalence of unhinged doctrines that attack the stability of the Christian faith, it is more apparent now than ever that pastors, churches, Para-church and business leaders have strong accountability and covering. The advancement of the kingdom depends on leaders who are equipped for service and prepared to impart and release other leaders into the world for kingdom impact. It matters not whether one is black, white, or any other race, in the kingdom. Whether one’s background is Methodist, AME Zion, Baptist, Pentecostal, or Non-denominational, the kingdom needs Apostolic minded men and women who are willing to release the traditional mindsets and listen to the voice of God as He speaks to this generation. There is a power that has been released into the kingdom to witness the demonstration of God to this world. Signs, wonders, and miracles are to be regular and daily occurrences in the lives of all believers. All the races and nations of the earth are to worship in unity under the banner of our God and we are the restorers of the breaches that have resulted by the work of the enemy. We are to be Apostolic leaders, in an Apostolic age, releasing Apostolic people. The Spirit Flows Apostolic Ministries Network is established as a fellowship organized by Bishop McCullough. It is committed to strengthening the Kingdom of God through covering Pastors, Para-church ministries, and business leaders. SFAMBN understands that the Kingdom of God is not limited only to operations within “church walls”. Our focus is Fathering, Kingdom Advancement and Developing Synergetic Covenant relationships. The ParaChurch Ministries/ Business Division Para-Church ministries are outreach organizations not affiliated with a particular church but are strategic in manifesting the Kingdom to the world.

The of My Spirit upon all mankind, and invitation of the Lord is clear: “You shall your sons and your daughters shall do the same works He has done, and You can do prophesy and your young men shall GREATER!”. see visions, and on My menservants

Acts 2:17-18 (Amp) The Lord in these last days has released a tremendous prophetic anointing upon the Body of Christ. Such anointing is accompanied with signs and wonders; the Body will experience a divine empowerment to do greater things. We are invited by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself, “I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father.” John 14:12. Now somebody may say that He was only speaking to the twelve but don’t forget that Paul wasn’t part of the twelve; that a disciple called Ananias went to lay his hands on the blind Saul (Paul) and he

He did not say that the from the Jordan and was led in [by] the Holy Spirit…” There was an experience of Father will do it through you, He said reception of the Holy Spirit that trans“Yourself will be able to do the things I do; and even greater things than these.” Now don’t get lated into an experience of being led in me wrong, I know the Power Source. But and by the Holy Spirit; such leading brought Him in the place of testing . after you have charged a battery, do you still leave the Power source plugged to the At the end of the testing period, the Word says that , “Jesus went back full of car ? No I don’t think so. The battery and under the power of the Holy Spirit into must be able to do it itself. Jesus said, 1– The Reason of the Invite:
Galilee, and the fame of Him spread through the whole region round about…” We know that His fame did not spread throughout the whole county just because He came out from the wilderness. His fame spread out because Jesus did a first miracle; “On the third day there was a wedding at Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus also was invited with His disciples to the wedding. And when the wine was all gone, the mother of Jesus said to Him, they have no more wine!” an opportunity was presented at the wedding. Now remember that Jesus was just like any other guests. He was invited just like everybody else. But His mother certainly noticed something different about Him. She saw something that no one else had seen yet: Power! She went to the supposed son of the carpenter to ask for wine. No, she saw something and knew that He had more than a carpenter - He had the Power to do miracles. As we know the story, the word called this His first miracle. Jesus turned the water into wine. He was able to do because He had received Power of the Holy Ghost. As the Lord has called us to set “Prophetic Zone” for our local churches, we need to understand the need to receive the power of the Holy Spirit. I remember asking this wrong question: “God why didn’t you heal such and such?” until recently I was shocked to hear a preacher who was facing the challenge to heal someone say, “Lord how come I can’t help this woman?” I repeated the question and it became clear to me: God has given me power and it’s up to me to help! The connector to the source is our steadfast faith to believe in Jesus and what He said. Your faith must upgrade! You must believe in Him in order to connect to the Source. You must believe that He did speak to his disciples, but He was instructing the whole Church.
You and I have the greatest opportunity. And at times it may feel that we are not qualified for the job. But remember that , “He who has called us also qualifies us”. Jesus is expecting us to walk in the same manner of power as He did and even to do GREATER works than what He did. What did He do?
30 HEALING PROMISES
A) He opened the eyes of the blinds, and made the lame to walk and opened the ears of the deaf and He cast out devils, He cleaned the lepers, He raised the dead, He healed all manner of sickness and He preached the Gospel of the Kingdom. This seems to be a pretty impressive resume; and usually we are impressed ‘cause we thing about Jesus doing these things as “God”. However according to the word, Jesus wasn’t able to do until He received the Holy Spirit upon Him and therefore the power to do these things! As the Son of God, Jesus is One in His class; but as a Prophet, He is inviting each one of us!

Health Restored I just want to thank God for my healing. The devil is truly a liar. For no weapon formed against us shall prosper. I had a dream and after the dream I became sick with body pains. Dr. POATY prayed over me and the healing power of God fell upon me and now all pain is gone. I thank God for his servant. For the miracles and the work he is doing for the Lord. May God continue to bless his ministry and his family in Jesus name Amen.
