Last night we held a chapel service at the Salvation Army in Dallas and we were pleased to see the Lord’s miraculous power at work in our midst. We had a very good turnout as people jammed in the main chapel floor area and the balcony was nearly full too. As I went around greeting everyone prior to the service I was confronted with some intense anger. I knew the Lord Jesus was wanting to doing some special as the enemy was already at work. I was determined to face down this anger with the love of Jesus.
The Holy Spirit moved in some very tangible ways during the proclamation of the gospel message, as even people remarked that they could feel the Spirit of God moving while the Word of God was being preached. I delivered a message on the “Back of Jesus” from Isaiah 50:6.
“I offered my back to those who beat me,
my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard;
I did not hide my face
from mocking and spitting.”
The Messiah as revealed in the Book of Isaiah “offered” His very back! What did Jesus bore on His holy back? He bore our sins, afflictions, curses, our punishment, and our griefs and sorrows. The people assembled in the chapel were quite attentive as I shared these beautiful truths. I felt the liberty of the Spirit in an unusual manner. The blood stained cross of Jesus was proclaimed with incredible spiritual force and people were forced to face the truth of Jesus and His life, death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and second coming. I called people to turn from Satan to God, to turn from sin to holiness, from eternal hell to heaven.
In speaking of hell, I proclaimed the urgency to get right with God lest they find themselves in everlasting hell. There was an extreme quietness throughout the crowded chapel as I shared the truths of hell. I could really sense the people were ready to turn to the Lord Jesus!
I called people to Christ and many did throughout the chapel!
I then invited people to partake of the holy blood and body of the Lord in Holy Communion. There was a deepening work of the Spirit as we participated in the partaking of the blood and body of the Savior. Many were refreshed and encouraged.
Then I invited those whom were interested in receiving liberation from evil spirits and healing to stay after the main service to receive from the Lord. I was shocked, in a sense, the amount of hurting people, that wanted to stay for deliverance. For several hours, I drove out numerous demons, pains, torments, and afflictions.
One man from Kenya, East Africa, was instantaneously delivered from all forms of torment and publicly testified of his miraculous healing before all.
Several were delivered from generational Masonic spirits, many of these demonic beings were chocking the people as I was leading them in prayers of renunciation. Another man was delivered from homosexual spirits. There were so many people delivered from various pains, evil spirits and afflictions.
I did notice throughout the night people were having incredible amount of difficulty repeating prayers of renunciation with me. This is a common problem with those who are demonized but on this night there were many people having this problem. God was gracious as everyone that had demonic interference were healed and delivered from it and were able to pray with me with no problem!
There were probably twenty or so demonized individuals that were delivered from evil spirits and many were healed of various evil afflictions. God provided for the people, His salvation, healing, and deliverance!
