After 35-days in Nigeria, I flew to Kenya to preach at the Supernatural Gospel Crusade as the main speaker. We ventured 14-hours by car from Nairobi into a remote village in western Kenya. Over the course of the three night event, thousands of people attended to encounter the Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit.
Hundreds were physically healed, were delivered of demonic influences, rededicated their lives to the Lord, or received salvation by accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. One man testified that his severe back pain due to kidney stones disappeared when I commanded kidney stones to dissolve in the name of Jesus.
Africa is also a place of great spiritual warfare. A 19-year old woman shared her testimony of what God did in her life during this crusade. She informed us she grew up as an orphan. After sometime she was brought into a home where the people operated in high levels of witchcraft. As a result of her bondage, demons would physically visit and torture her.
This woman saw the poster advertising the Supernatural Gospel Crusade. The demons commanded her to go and disrupt the meetings. However, the Heavenly Father had other plans. God “arrested” her while I was praying for the people. She manifested demons, in which I cast out in the name of Jesus. She had hoards of evil influences that left her. She then dedicated her life to the Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit.
What is Your Filter?By Dawn R. Pietsch
What is your filter? Whom do you use to run things by? The father of lies, who came to steal, kill, and destroy... or... The Spirit of Truth, which is the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, and Father God... who cannot tell a lie, and Jesus... who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life... who came to bring Life, and that more abundantly! Looking at it this way, it's a no brainer! Why would you want a filter of lies, when you could have truth? Everything that is going on in this world needs to be run through the filter of the Lord, otherwise it needs to be thrown out!
We operate by faith in a God who knows all things, sees all things, and has the power to do all things! Nothing is impossible with God!!! We must trust in Him by faith. It's our faith that pleases Him anyways! Our hope must be in Him... and His hope is a for sure thing! So next time your being bombarded with worldly issues, remember that the Lord is your filter, the living, breathing Word of God!
