My Personal Testimonies

One of the greatest miracles that God has worked in my life occurred March 31, 1970. God had directed me in 1969 to sell my veterinary hospital, and we finalized the transaction on January 2, 1970.  During the next three months, I struggled whether I wanted to obey God or not.  I drove from Sarcoxie, Missouri to Sherman, Texas on my way to Dallas to visit a friend about a business deal.  I checked into the Holiday Inn in Sherman about 3:00 a.m. on March 31. I walked into the room and directly over to the nightstand that had a light on. There was a bible lying open on top of the nightstand, facing towards me.

 

The bible was open to Isaiah 30, and my eyes fixed upon verse 1, "Woe to the rebellious children, saith the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:"

 

As I read that verse I knew for the first time in my life that I was a rebel.  I never considered myself to be a rebellious person, but a person that won't obey God is a rebel. God convinced me on the spot. I never discussed the business deal with my friend.  I just conducted some small business items and returned to Sarcoxie a changed man. I never wanted to run away after that.

 

I want to pray a prayer for God's people that he grants them a spirit of grace and supplication, that they may look upon him whom they have pierced, and they see their rebellious state and only want to serve the Father of spirits. In Jesus name, Amen.

 

Nearly 35 years ago, God began leading me to cast devils out of myself, my family, and a few others. God began teaching me about putting to death the deeds of the flesh through the Spirit, (Romans 8:13) and purifying the soul (will, intellect, and emotion) by obeying the truth through the Spirit. (I Peter 1:22) Over a period of several years, I would frequently have pains in my body, in my legs, arms, shoulders, over my entire body.  I have come to see that God was putting to death the deeds of the flesh through the Spirit, and casting devils out of my flesh. See Galatians 5:16-26.

In 2004, as I was vacating my house in Fairview, I endured a period in May and June where my legs hurt so bad with severe pain, that some days I could not even walk around my church building without sitting down. I could not find a place that I could be comfortable.  If I didn't pray the pains were severe, and if I prayed they became more severe. So I prayed and overcame. Before I arrived in Plano on July 1st, the pains were gone and today they remain free of pain. I did not know what was awaiting me in Plano. Even though my ministry has been in Plano since 1980, I did not live in Plano until July 1, 2004.  I could not have imagined the affliction and persecution that I endured, but out of them all the Lord delivered me.  (II Timothy 3:11) 

 

Lamentations 3:22-23, "It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. v.22

 

They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness." v.23

 

I want to pray a prayer for God's people that he grants them a spirit of grace and supplication that they may look upon him whom they have pierced, and he delivers them out of all their afflictions and persecutions. In Jesus name, Amen.

 

Beginning July 2003, God directed me to take a group and visit 48 states and pray. We visited our last state on June 18, 2004. By the time we completed that tour of states, the power of darkness was increasing more and more against this ministry. I know that God permitted that power of darkness to come. In Luke 22:53, when they came after Jesus to take him to the cross he said, "This is your hour and the power of darkness." Jesus before Pilate made this statement in John 19:11, "Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin."

 

During this period the power of darkness effected every one associated with this ministry, many people have been offended, there have been betrayals, rejections, and many lies have been spoken. Proverbs 18:14 says, "The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear it?" I fought the power of darkness with all the faith and love that I had in me to keep from receiving a wounded spirit. I am sure that there are many that have been offended and received wounded spirits. I know that as the leader of this ministry, I have an obligation to minister to all that have been offended and received wounded spirits, that they be healed. In Matthew 26:31 it says, "Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad." I know it is Jesus Christ the shepherd in me that is the shepherd to the flock. I knew that Satan desired to smite me, knowing he could stop the work of God. But God would not permit that, and He upheld me.

 

Paul speaking in Acts 24:15 about the resurrection (gospel), states in verse 16, "And herein (gospel) do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men." I have learned by experience that I must live this way, always forgiving every man and every woman from my heart. I find it necessary to pray always to achieve this.

 

Today, we are rapidly overcoming this power of darkness, and we are moving into what I consider some more enjoyable work.

 

I pray the Father pour a spirit of grace and supplication out on every one of us that we may see the one that we pierced. I pray the power of the resurrected Christ be in every spirit, soul, and body that has been offended and wounded, and that they be healed. In Jesus name, Amen.

 

God bless you,
