“Ask of Me, and I Will Give You the Nations for your Inheritance!”

That was the message AL received from God many years ago. Of course, we quickly learned that it was Psalm 2:8. We began quoting it over and over to ourselves and we did begin to travel to the nations. We began to write strong, foundational, Spirit-filled materials for training. We were among the first ministries to go on the Internet still with one goal ~ reaching the world. Now, we have people from around 125 nations visiting us on the web each month.

One powerful promise became our purpose, our goal, our desire. Now I have been to over 90 nations. Our teaching material is in 25 languages. Our teaching with the International School of Ministry (ISOM) is reaching over 140 nations. But we are not satisfied! There is still more to do!

The Church

Now the Lord is speaking to us about His Church, the Church He said He would build. The Church that the gates of hell will not prevail against. What is God saying to his body of believers today? How do we reach the lost and dying of this generation both in our nations and the nations of the world. We have just spent two weeks in Hawaii ministering and praying about this.

The Mountain of the Lord

For many years we have been hearing and talking about the Seven Mountains of Influence. And then God began to speak about the Mountain of the Lord, the Eighth Mountain which is the presence of God the Father.

Isaiah 2:2 Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it.

The Church is Destroyed!

In 1949 after the end of the Second World War, we remember as children the concern we felt around us as all missionaries were forced to leave China or put into concentration camps. They spoke at our churches telling of the horrible things they had witnessed. All the Christian leaders  were being imprisoned, even killed. The curtain of Communism fell over the country and we heard no more. We thought the Church in China had been destroyed.

But instead, when the curtain lifted, we found the Church was alive and thriving. There is no way to know for sure how many Christians there are today. A low estimate is 30 million, and even with that low estimate, that would mean the church exploded with a 40-fold increase!

What happened? We are still looking for more answers to that question. I have had the privilege of graduating over 25,000 students from the ISOM training program in China.

Feeling God’s Presence

On Monday night, something happened while we were in Hawaii, that has us both so excited. Our friends in Hawaii have a large company in Orange County, California, as well as a smaller branch in Klanea, Hawaii. In their company, they have set aside a room for prayer 24/7 and also have another room which will seat close to 300 people. As we watched on the computer in Hawaii through security cameras, we experienced the awesome power of God being released as a group of intercessors met to pray for our country and however else the Lord led. Prayer is every night from 7 to 10 PM.

As we worshipped, prayed, watched, God was whispering to us, “This is a prototype. Pay attention to what you are experiencing.” Truly God is moving back into the business world when we make a place for Him. And then, just to prove He is God and He is behind this move, on Tuesday with no special promotion, the sales for the company doubled! And this was on the slowest day of the week in their slowest season.

This couple are also in the process of remodeling a building for their business in Hawaii with a large room opened for prayer 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

A Training Center

We are all praying about starting Kingdom Training Centers in both the Hawaiian and Orange County building in California. The body of Christ needs to be trained! Daniel 11 says, those that know the Lord their God will do mighty exploits. Plans are ongoing for training those that God is calling into each of “The Seven Mountains” of culture under the Eighth Mountain of The Lord.”

Revising our Website

One of the projects we were working on in Hawaii was a full revision of our website. It will be updated to appeal to the younger generation around the world. We have also been revising and adding all of the Scriptures instead of just the references to our Miracle Module series. This series includes:

— Discover Your Destiny 
— Commissioned and Authorized
— Living Supernaturally 
— Praise and Worship
— Signs and Wonders
— Prayer

Opportunities to Minister  20180418_191512

There were many opportunities to minister healing including cancer and a brain tumor. Others were born again and filled with the Holy Spirit. One young man who had just accepted the Lord asked if I would baptize him. Of course, I was happy to do that. Then others wanted to be baptized and a family dinner turned into eight being baptized in the swimming pool at our friend’s home.

 

Free Material for Download

Our dear friends, Jack and Grace Tuls, continue to go to nation after nation where God tells them to go, meeting with pastors and establishing “Kingdom Training Centers” using our training manuals that have been translated into many languages. Many others are discovering these resources on our website, all free of charge.

An email from Columbia just came in. “Thanks for the materials, the manuals are invaluable resources and we have been developing them with great success. I’m reading your book of the Domain (Destined for Dominion) and I have worked with the internet materials, and they have been a very valuable help for my life and ministry for eight years. We share your vision of the kingdom to expand training centers throughout Colombia. Our Church is missionary and has a global vision and we have offices in 5 other countries. We preach the complete Word of God and with the living Faith of the Holy Spirit.”

On to Malaysia

It is good to be home for a week and this includes our monthly “Fire on The Mountain” revival meeting with Jerame Nelson and Andrew Hopkins. I will continue on the next day for four weeks of ministry in the nation of Malaysia while Joyce will be at home as she continues working on the upgrades of our resources and website.

While in Malaysia, I will be doing meetings in four churches including the church and Bible School we helped start 35 years ago with our spiritual son and daughter, John and Hepsi Ezekiel.

I will be doing a week of teaching in two other Bible Schools in that nation. The first week will be a week of teaching with a Burmese translator at a school started a number of years ago by Sarah Aye, one of our graduates at The School of Acts in Malaysia. After she graduated, she went into the community where many of those like herself, other refugees from Myanmar, are now living. She started winning these Burmese speaking people to Jesus. She started a church that now has around 2,000 in attendance and they are expecting around 3,000 in this year’s conference.

She starts a new full-time Bible School every three months where I will be their week-long teacher again this year.

Her brother, Joshua Aye (now one of our spiritual sons), serves as my interpreter and is an awesome worship leader. Last year, we trained hundreds of their young cell group leaders. These meetings began after they get off work at around 10 PM and go to around 3 AM in the morning. Most of them never sat down, but were leaping up and down shouting “Yes! Yes! Yes!” in Burmese as I ministered the powerful, life-changing truths of God’s Word.

School of Acts

As I have done for the past twenty-five years, I will again be the opening week’s teacher of The School of Acts headed by Dr. Raymond Mooi, with students coming from many nations.

I will again be teaching practical, life-changing foundational truths from God’s Word for both the day and night classes for the whole week after ministering at “HIS Church” on Sunday.

I am already looking forward to the Thursday Breakthrough to Glory Night as we have been doing for many years. God always meets us in such awesome power. Almost all, if not all, end up all over the

floor under the power of God by the end of the evening. I love being the opening week’s teacher as I get to set the pace and move the students into the middle of the Book of Acts.

Your Daily Prayers

A Pastor, Justin Monfort, from a powerful church in Ohio will be joining me for this year’s Malaysia trip. Two others, David Hanashiro from Hawaii and Ken Starr from California and Hawaii, will also be joining me for part of this trip. As always, we ask for your daily prayers for each one of us and for those that we will be ministering to in Malaysia.

Your Financial Partnership

Please pray about what God would have you to do both as an extra special financial gift to help in sending us this month as your missionaries to the nation of Malaysia. And also, if you are not already a regular contributor, please pray about becoming a regular monthly partner to keep us on the front lines of this great end-time harvest.

The cost for travel, developing and paying for the translations and making all of these resources available free of charge keeps stretching our faith. Millions are accessing these resources every year by individuals, churches and ministries in over 125 nations.

Needless to say, we can’t do it alone. We do need your help. God bless you for your obedience to what God is telling you to do.

Your missionaries to the world,

Reaching Younger

As Joyce and I watch the news, we are so struck with the lost generation we see on the screen before us. So many have not been taught the truths of God’s Word. They do not know the joy of putting others before themselves. They do not understand it’s better to give than to receive. But it’s not a time to sit back and be judgmental; it’s time for each of us to pray for them – To ask God to reveal Himself to them!

The book of Malachi was written at the end of an age. And we find that the final words of the Old Testament reveal the heart and passion of our Heavenly Father for the younger generation.

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great  and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn The hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse. (Malachi 4:5, 6)

After God spoke these words, there was a period which we call the four-hundred silent years. During this time, it was as though the heavens were closed and there are no recorded words heard from heaven.

Before the birth of John the Baptist, the Angel Gabriel spoke to John’s father Zacharias saying:

He will also go before Him (Jesus) in the Spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

The Prophet Elijah

Elijah did and said many things, but one of the most powerful things we see when we look back on his life, is his calling to Elisha. We are reminded of the time when Elijah saw the young man, Elisha, plowing in the field with twelve yokes of oxen. He threw his mantle on him. Elisha followed Elijah and was a faithful servant to him and Elijah was a spiritual father to Elisha. Malachi 4:5,6 is a reference to this relationship.

We see this relationship when Elijah was taken up in the whirlwind. He cried out “My father, my father!” And he received a double portion of the anointing that was on his spiritual father, Elijah.

There are twice as many miracles (28) recorded in the life and ministry of Elisha as were recorded (14) in the life and ministry of his spiritual father, Elijah.

 My Beloved Son

After the four-hundred silent years, John the Baptist came and his message was, “There is one coming after me” (Jesus). And when Jesus came to be baptized identifying with the message of John, the heavens were opened, the Holy Spirit descended and The Father broke the silent years saying “This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.”

God restored the Father-Son relationship, and with it, He restored His presence, power, provision, peace, praise and prosperity. And then came an unprecedented outpouring of signs, wonders and miracles through the ministry of Jesus, the Son of God.

Again, when Jesus took Peter, James and John with him up on the Mount of Transfiguration, the voice of the Father was heard saying “This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.”

The disciples asked “Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?” Jesus answered: “Elijah truly is coming first and will restore all things. But I say to you that Elijah has come already …then the disciples understood that He spoke to them of John the Baptist.”

Second Fulfillment

Many times in Scripture there is more than one fulfillment of a prophetic passage. We believe this passage in Malachi is one of these times.

Jesus said, Elijah truly is coming, referring to the great and dreadful day of the Lord. He also said, “Elijah has come already” referring to John the Baptist. Today, we are in the midst of a Fathering Reformation.

In Acts 3:19-21 as Peter preached on the day of Pentecost, he spoke of the return of Jesus to this earth: “whom heaven must receive until the time of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.”

Today, God is restoring and turning the hearts of spiritual fathers and mothers to those who are their spiritual sons and daughters. We see this pattern through Scripture as Moses was to Joshua, Samuel was to David, Elijah was to Elisha and Paul was to Timothy.

As this “shift” is taking place, we will no longer be looking at this next generation for what they can do to help us fulfill our vision. Instead we will be saying: “What vision has God given you? And how can we help you fulfill your vision.”

Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 12:28: “And God has set in the Church, first Apostles (Spiritual fathers and mothers laying foundations) secondly prophets, thirdly teachers and after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversity of tongues.”

If we want the “after that,” we must be willing to align ourselves with what must come “before that.”

Isaiah 8:18 says: “Behold, I and the children whom the Lord has given me are for signs and wonders in Israel.”

When spiritual Father-Son order is restored, “Signs, wonders and miracles” will be restored and blessings released. Then, this next generation will step into the fulfillment of their destiny.

God is revealing to leaders that ministry is not so much about them but on growing the ministry of those coming after them; a generation of sons and daughters. Spiritual fathers and mothers begat spiritual sons and daughters. As Moses was to Joshua, Samuel was to David, Elijah was to Elisha and Paul was to Timothy.

Elijah brought fire down from heaven. He could hear the still small voice of God. He walked in supernatural provision as the ravens brought him bread and meat and the angels brought him cakes and water. He was sent to a fatherless family to bring the widow of Zarephath and her son the miracle of supply. Elisha took up the mantle of Elijah and struck the waters of Jordan and it divided as it had done for Elijah. The sons of the prophets from Jericho exclaimed: “The spirit of Elijah rests on Elisha.” He healed the bad waters of Jericho. He brought life back to the son of the Shunammite woman. He brought healing to Naaman the Leper. He helped a spiritual son get back “the cutting edge” of his axe head. His prophetic ministry warned of danger ahead and received revelation of what the wicked king was speaking in his bedroom.

The first few generations of the church changed the world. However, somewhere along the line we got disconnected from the flow of generational anointing. Our hearts as spiritual fathers and mothers must be turned first. Then, spiritual sons and daughters must get reconnected to those spiritual fathers and mothers; those who are imparting their anointing and gifting into this next generation of faithful sons and daughters in double portion.

This Coming Month

Joyce and I can truthfully say, our hearts have been turned to the younger generations.

This coming month, we are going to be meeting with a group of this young generation in Hawaii to prepare and position ourselves to better reach them. We need to reach them where they are, on their cell phones, I-Pads and other portable devices.

Returning to Malaysia

In the month of May, I will again be the opening week’s teacher at The School of Acts in Malaysia and then teaching another week at a Kingdom training center for a turned-on group of refugees from Myanmar that I have been teaching for the past two years and leaders and students from other churches and Kingdom training centers that we have helped to establish over the past thirty-five years.

All of this is possible because of your faithful partnership with us as we keep going, resourcing, equipping and imparting to a whole new generation; the generation that is going to reach the nations of the world with the gospel of the Kingdom before the soon return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Two Special Needs

We do need your help! Through your faithful prayers and generous giving, you make everything we do possible. We need to reprint the manual Praise and Worship ~ Becoming Worshipers of God at a cost of about $3,000. We also need to purchase AL’s tickets to Malaysia at another cost of about $3,000. Would you pray about helping us meet these two expenses this month?

From Deep Darkness to the LIght of His Glory

From Deep Darkness

This is certainly a time of deep spiritual darkness. From the unbelievable corruption and spirit­ual darkness in our own govern­ment systems which is com­ing to light in the United States to the deep darkness of other nations which are allowing radical Islam to infiltrate their culture and are taking a stand against Israel.

But what a wonderful, encouraging word we have in Isaiah 60.

Arise, shine; For your light has come! and the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.

For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people;
but the LORD will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.

The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.
“Lift up your eyes all around, and see: they all gather together, they come to you; your sons shall come from afar,
and your daughters shall be nursed at your side.
Then you shall see and become radiant, and your heart shall swell with joy;
because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you,
the wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you. (Isaiah 60:1-5)

A major shift has taken place with the passing of Billy Graham. He has preached the gospel of salvation to more people than anyone who has ever lived on this earth.

Billy Graham had a major impact on my life when in the early days of his ministry he came to my hometown of Houston, Texas, and I had the privilege of working in the crusade office with his team and also served as a counselor to those who came forward to accept Jesus as their Savior.

What began as two weeks of meetings lasted for seven weeks as we outgrew the city coliseum and ended up filling Rice Stadium night after night with thousands coming into a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Later in the early 60’s, I was an advisor with the Billy Graham team when we packed out the Dome Stadium in Houston with many more coming into salvation through a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. How we praise the Lord for all He did during that time!

But today we feel an exciting new shift is taking place. There is a change that is taking place as we move forward from the emphasis on the “Gospel of Salvation” to “The Gospel of The Kingdom.”

“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations,
and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14a)

God says,  The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising. (Isaiah 60:3)

You might feel this could never happen to you but Joyce and I are from very humble, economically poor back­grounds and yet, over the years, He has let us speak and minister to leaders of nations.

He has given us the opportunity to know and visit with the man who was king over the kings of Africa.

We have been a personal friend and frequent advisor to the former president of Zambia, Africa.  We have stayed in the statehouse and traveled across his nation in the presidential limousine with a long line of police on motorcycles, body guards, the Minister of Religion, The Minister of Protocol and other dignitaries.

In our travels across that nation we ministered to the heads of the various states, the mayors of cities, to packed out halls of pastors in the daytime and packed our stadiums at night. We were the President’s special guest for the opening of parliament.

We have had the privilege of ministering to the Prime Minister and his wife of a Muslim nation and to be in their home. At that time, he was also the head of the federation of all the Islamic nations of the world.

And doors are still opening. Not because of who we are, but because of Who we represent.

We had a recent meal with our good friend, Ambassador Dr. Clyde Rivers, who has been serving as the United Nations Ambassador for the Nation of Burundi.

A number of years ago, I was at the Gerald Ford Presidential Library in Michigan and he appointed me as a Goodwill Ambassador for the Golden Rule Initiative of the United Nations.

There are so many changes happening and God wants to prepare others to be used in the political arena. During our time with Dr. Rivers, we discussed plans to start training Ambassadors to be able to minister as advisors to leaders of nations. We are discussing the possibility of training believers to be leaders in the Kingdom here at Big Bear Lake, California. And as we continue seeking God’s will in this area, we would appreciate your prayers.

Isaiah chapter 60 is also full of prophecies of the coming gold and glory. Gold speaks of the great wealth that will finance the great end-time harvest. Verse five speaks of the coming abundance and wealth which will come to us as His kings.

The Gold

Verse 6 speaks of those who will bring gold and incense.

Verse 9 speaks of our sons coming to bring their silver and gold with them.

Verse 11 speaks of men coming that will bring the wealth of the Gentiles with “kings in procession.”

And verse 17 speaks of our Redeemer bringing gold instead of iron and silver instead of wood.

But above all, Isaiah 60 speaks of the coming glory. It is the knowledge of that coming glory that is going to fill this earth as the waters cover the seas. (Hab 2:14)

The Glory

It is about the glory of the LORD that will arise and be seen upon us (Isaiah 60:1, 2)

It is about God glorifying the house of His glory (vs. 7)

It is about His glorifying us. (Vs. 9)

It is about the glory of Lebanon coming to us and making the place of our feet glorious. (Vs. 13)

It is about our God who is our glory. (Vs. 19)

And finally it is about each of us bringing glory to Him. (Vs. 21)

Yes, out of the midst of the deep spiritual darkness that has covered the land,
there is a shift that is taking place.

There is arising a glory like this earth has never seen before.
It is going to arise upon those of us who are the kings in the Kingdom.

And with it the hidden riches of the silver and gold in secret places is going
to be revealed to finance the great end-time harvest.

“The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine; says the LORD of hosts. (Haggai 2:8)

I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places,
That you may know that I, the LORD, Who call you by your name, am the God of Israel. (Isaiah 45:3)

On March 8–11, Joyce and I are going to be ministering at the Mother Lode Gold Rush Encounter at Mariposa, California hosted by Henry and Grace Falany. The conference will be held at the Fairgrounds in Mariposa, California which is right on top of the huge rich vein of gold known as “The Mother Lode” which runs over a hundred miles northwest of Mariposa.

The focus of the conference will be on what God is saying about the “Gold” (Both natural and spiritual) for California and the nations from the spiritual heart of California.

We have been experiencing awesome revival at the Fire on The Mountain revival meetings here in Big Bear Lake.

We have overseas ministry trips planned for the majority of April and also in May when I will be ministering again this year in the nation of Malaysia.

All of this is possible because of each of our faithful partners in your prayers and generous giving. God bless you for your faithfulness!

Your missionaries to the world,

Kingdom Advancing Prayer

As we look around us in this New Year, Joyce and I are so aware of the need for prayer; in our towns, our states and our countries. God is calling us to more and more prayer. It’s time we all move into Kingdom Advancing Prayers.

But what are Kingdom Advancing Prayers?

We know Jesus is the King of Kings spoken about in Revelation 19:16. We have no problem in recognizing Jesus as the King in heaven, but many have failed to recognize it is just as true that we are His kings on earth.

But if we are His kings on earth, are we praying like kings? Are we praying Kingdom advancing prayers?  Is there a “Kingdom violence” in our prayers?

The apostle Matthew wrote, From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. (Matthew 11:12)

I was raised in a church in which we were taught the importance of praying, but one day I had to face the fact that my prayers were not usually answered. My prayer list was just growing longer and longer!

I prayed as I had been taught, and what I called prayers were actually telling God about all my problems and then asking Him to fix them. Sometimes I even told Him how I felt this could be done.

Instead of Kingdom advancing prayers, I spent hours in fervent worry calling it prayer. I was trying to make God feel sorry for me so that He would answer my prayers. After all, that was the way I heard almost everyone else pray.

Jesus taught His disciples to pray Kingdom Advancing Prayers.

There was obviously something so different about the way Jesus prayed, that His disciples asked Him to teach them how to pray. It came to pass, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, that one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.”

So He said to them, “When you pray, say: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. (Luke 11:1, 2)

Prayer is about bringing the Kingdom of God from heaven to earth by what we say when we pray. It has to do with our God-given kingship on earth. In addition to being God’s priests on this earth, He has also made us His kings.

Jesus is the one and only King of each of us as His kings on this earth (Revelation 19:16)

Kings rule by what they say or decree in their realm of authority on earth.

It is all about the gospel of the Kingdom.

Jesus mentioned the “Kingdom of God” or the “Kingdom of Heaven” over a hundred times in scripture. That is more than He spoke on any other subject. When we realize this, it makes the truth that we are His kings on this earth more meaningful.

Kings rule by what they say, by what they decree in their realm of authority on this earth. King Solomon wrote,

By me, Kings reign, and rulers decree justice. (Proverbs 8:15)

When God created mankind out of the dust of the earth (His “New Creations), the first thing He said was,

Let them have dominion over this earth and everything in it (Genesis 1:26-28)

Kings take dominion by what they say or decree. Where the word of a king is, there is power… (Ecclesiastes 8:4)

You will make your prayer to Him, He will hear you, and you will pay your vows. You will also declare (decree) a thing, and it will be established for you; so light will shine on your ways. (Job 22:27, 28)

The word of the king is law and cannot be changed.

King Darius loved Daniel, but those that were jealous of Daniel’s favor with the king tricked King Darius into making a decree that if anyone would worship any other God but Darius, he was to be thrown into the lion’s den.

When Daniel prayed to the Lord God of heaven and this was reported to King Darius, the king could not change his decree because the word of the king was the law and could not be changed.

King Darius, in his wisdom, made a second decree. He decreed that The Lord God whom Daniel worshiped continually would deliver Daniel from the mouths of the lions.

Prayer is about what we say.

Jesus taught His disciples that prayer is about what they said. When you pray, say…” Kings take dominion on this earth by what they say, and He taught the disciples to say “Your Kingdom come…”

The word for “come” in the Greek language was the word “ercomehe.” It was used as a command meaning “Come here!”

It was the word Jesus used when he commanded Peter to come out of the boat to walk on the water.

It was the word the Centurion used when he mentioned his authority as the commander of the Roman soldiers in explaining why he asked Jesus to Speak a word only and my servant will be healed! He said in Matthew, chapter eight:

“For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one ‘Go, and he goes; and to another ‘come’ and he comes; and to my servant, “Do this,’ and he does it.”

That word “ercomehe” is a command and is the same word that Jesus used when He taught his disciples to say Your Kingdom come.

The Kingdom of God is not going to come from heaven into our realm of authority on earth until we, as His kings on earth, say it as a command “come!” Come here Kingdom of God!”

Prayer is not begging God to do something.

Prayer is speaking with our God-given authority as His kings on earth commanding the Kingdom of God  (righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit) to come from heaven to our realm of authority on earth. It is not going to happen until we learn to pray like the kings He says we are.

Now, instead of telling God all about our problems, Joyce and I walk in confidence that God knows what is on our minds. He knows far more about our situations then we do! We spend time praising Him in the Spirit. We worship Him and set our spirits free to worship Him with our heavenly language. Then suddenly, we know what to say, and what to declare. He gives us His words. When we pray this way, our faith bounds forward. We are not trying to believe for something we want, but rather are speaking the answer He has given us in confidence.

When we look around us there are so many problems. But we can’t allow ourselves to be swallowed up in problems! How much better it is to spend our time thanking Him, praising Him, worshiping Him and letting Him whisper His answer into our spirits.

Many times, we don’t need to wait for His exact words. For example, when someone needs healing, we already know God’s will. His Word says,

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
(3 John 1:2)

We can step out in our God-given authority and say, “Healing Come!” Even as we do this, we are listening for other words to come.

Planning and Moving forward

In December I wrote, “After tests, I had an angiogram on November 30. They found two places where the blood flow in my heart was severely blocked and stents were put in. I am now on my way to full recovery!”

God is faithful! I have been able to resume ministering in the United States and am now involved in planning my next ministry trip to Malaysia.

Joyce and I thank the many believers who have been praying for us during this time! We appreciate your faithful partnership in keeping us going to the nations.

God bless you for your faithfulness through your generous giving. Together we are winning!

Your missionaries to the world,

Joy to the Word - The Lord Has Come!

17b-4701

What a wondrous time of year when we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior! We are so blessed to know Him, to love Him, to worship Him, to serve Him. The blessings He pours on all our lives are so awesome! This Christmas Season as we look back over the years, we think about the people we have ministered with. The excited faces of believers of almost a hundred nations including India, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, Africa, Central and South America and, of course, in our country, the United States. It is exciting as we have seen so many come to know Jesus, to be filled with the Holy Spirit and healed this year. Believers of different nationalities, different races, of every age, of every skin color, but they all have one thing in common – they love God and they can come into His Wondrous presence through His Son, Jesus. As we have ministered with them, we have felt God’s love flow through us to them and we have felt God’s love flow through them to us. Years ago, we ministered in Switzerland with a man from Nigeria. His wife and two sons had been martyred in that country but his face was radiant with his love for Jesus. We have good friends from Cambodia who lived through the horrible times of “the killing fields” – everyone from both of their families were killed, but today their faces radiate their love for God and the Cambodian people who they minister to on a daily basis. We stood last month on the property where our friend’s family home had burned to the ground in one of the tragic California fires. His father had built that home, and though he and his wife have another home where they live now, this place was precious to him. And yet we all knew God was saying, “This is not an end; it is a beginning.” Wow, God, You are so awesome! You took A.L. and Joyce, two shy people, and set them free of overcoming, crippling shyness. You moved them from the boring, natural realm of their lives into the exciting realm of your Spirit.  You were born in a manger; you lived your whole life in one small country. You, the incarnate Son of God, gave your life as a sacrifice for all. You rose from that dark, horrible grave to walk this earth once again, and then you ascended to be with your Father. And then you sent the Holy Spirit to live with us, to flow through us to our families, our neighborhoods, and countries. God, Bless your people with conspicuous blessings that the lost of this world will be drawn to You! Joyce and I have been met with a new challenge. Thanksgiving evening I had difficulty breathing and felt a constriction in my chest. After tests, I had an angiogram on November 30. They found two places where the blood flow in my heart was severely blocked and stents were put in. I am now on my way to full recovery! Joyce and I thank the many believers who have been praying for us during this time. We are looking forward to Christmas with a new intensity, so thankful that this problem was caught in time! Thank you for your love and your support! Your missionaries to the nations, A.L. & Joyce Gill donate_spr-sum

A TIME TO GIVE THANKS

Celebrating 61 Years A TIME TO GIVE THANKS

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him and Bless His name. For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations (Psalm 100:4, 5).

This Thanksgiving season, Joyce and my hearts are filled with thanks to the Lord for the great blessings He has showered over us. Years ago, we were in the Philippines ministering in a large park. As darkness settled in, there were thousands of people gathered across the area under soft lights. I taught on God’s Provision for Healing and as I quoted God’s Word, you could feel the Spirit of God moving across the huge gathering. I asked, “How many of you have received healing in your ears?” Hundreds began to cheer and excitedly wave their hands. I asked, “How many of you had pain in your backs and it’s gone?” Another wave of excited cheers filled the atmosphere as hundreds waved their hands and cried out, “It’s me! It’s me! I’m healed!” I went on calling out the healings God was showing me, and hundreds, even thousands realized the healing power of God had come to them. We were in Columbia and as the great Healing Explosion was ending about ten in the evening, there were thousands of people standing all over the great arena. Hundreds of people we had trained all week were ministering healing to their own people. Two doves began to circle the arena again and again. A newscaster was trying to describe it and he finished almost in a whisper, with the awesome words, “But doves don’t fly at night.” One night I was in Las Cruces, New Mexico, ministering in a camp ground in an open pavilion. I was teaching on the love God has for us, and when I finished teaching, I just stood there. God hadn’t told me what to do next. I was teaching – I stopped – and again two doves flew into the meeting. They flew around the pavilion three times and then were gone. The people began to run toward the platform, but collapsed in heaps all over the area. The following days they were all trying to explain what had happened to them. One more story, well ~ two stories in one. We were in Atlanta, Georgia at the Cobb auditorium. I was trying to read Mark 16:17-18, the Great Commission, but Joyce kept interrupting me! “A.L.,” she said, “You know miracles like that stopped happening thousands of years ago.” “But,” I said, or tried to say, as she stopped me again and again. Wow! You could feel the anger of the audience coming against her. Then she raised both hands into the air in a gesture of surrender. “I know, you are just trying to read the Word of God! Please do it again and I won’t interrupt!” I started over again reading, And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. And as I finished reading to the end, lightning struck the building. The lights went out and the dim emergency lights came on. The sound system was gone. The people stood and cheered wildly as they realized the power God wants us to operate in today. Continuing to cheer, they took off and marched all around the auditorium in victory. This is two stories in one, because I was in Malaysia one month later and again was trying to read the Great Commission. Joyce was not there but another brother began to argue with me just as she had. Again you could feel how upset the people were getting when he raised his hands in surrender! I read the passage again, and again, lightning hit the building. The lights went out. The people stood to their feet shouting in praise to God and took off marching around the building.

Who but God!!!

This is what we all want! We want to experience the power of God in our lives and in our meetings. He may come with healing, laughter, angels, doves, gold, lightning. It doesn’t matter; we just want more of Him! In a recent miracle service here in the United States, about a hundred people raised their hands to testify that they had received healing in their bodies as I was releasing the powerful revelation of God’s Word on His Provision for our Healing. It’s God’s Word that is alive and powerful. I am reminded of the time when I was ministering in a remote village in India. The whole village of a thousand or more people were healed and then gave their hearts to Jesus. In this village in India we were told that they had never heard the name of Jesus before. A church was planted and the people said that they would never go back to their idol worship after receiving Jesus as the only true and living way. Joyce and I are so thankful that we have had the privilege of seeing so many lives changed, healed and delivered as we have gone to about a hundred nations preaching the gospel of the Kingdom with signs and wonders following. We have seen God confirm His Word thousands of times sometimes to small groups, other times to crowds of hundreds of thousands in packed stadiums and large open fields. But most of all, we are thankful for the thousands of believers who we have had the privilege of equipping and training to live in the supernatural power and manifest­ation of the Spirit of God. We have watched as they have boldly started doing the works of Jesus including ministering healing to the sick. Words cannot express our great appreciation to The Lord for the thousands that we have had the privilege of training through our books, manuals, videos, audios, media and television outreaches. These practical, life-changing resources are now available free of charge through our website in twenty-five languages/donate/. Millions are accessing, studying and teaching these resources in churches, Bible schools and in Kingdom Training Centers in many nations.

Fire on The Mountain

Revival Fires are breaking out in Big Bear Lake! Jerame Nelson will be back with us for our next “Fire on The Mountain” revival meeting at 7 PM on Monday, November 27th and you are invited. We are expecting many more life-changing miracles again this month. We are expecting another packed-out crowd, so plan to come early. We are blessed to have Jerame Nelson lead this meeting which will be held in the auditorium of our ministry building. Last month, many came from numerous places; here at Big Bear Lake, Lake Arrowhead and many other towns in California and Nevada. Many received prophetic words; others experienced the healing power of God as many healing miracles took place. Come, expecting your miracle and a mighty outpouring of the Spirit of God.

Younger Generation Upgrade

Joyce and I are scheduled to leave December 7 for an extended time of working with a team of experts in Hawaii on upgrading our Kingdom Training resources to better reach and communicate with the younger generation. For years, our hearts have been turned to this younger group who we feel are the ones who are going to get the job done — reaching this world with “The Gospel of The Kingdom.” God has spoken to our friends in Hawaii to help us with this project. Thousands are downloading and using these “Kingdom Training” resources every year. And our heart is to upgrade our resources to better communicate to this new generation. We ask for your prayers for God’s wisdom and a “Spirit of Creativity” as we are beginning this new expansion of our ministry as we continue to reach out to the many languages, peoples and nations of the world. We ask that you pray for us, too, as we are starting to work on a new course on “The Gospel of The Kingdom.” It is because of your faithful partnership though your prayers and generous giving that we are able to keep expanding the ministry that God has given us to the nations of the world. God bless you for your faithfulness in partnering together with us in this fulfillment of “God’s Great Commission.”

Revival is Breaking Out!

Revival is Breaking Out!

20171030_213837

Immediately after The Azusa Street Revival, around 1906, prophets from that revival came into Big Bear Valley and began to prophesy that a great outpouring of the Spirit of God was coming to this valley. ,
Similar prophecies were heard as prophets from The Latter Reign Movement and other revivals began to come to Big Bear Valley prophesying that a great revival was coming that would draw many from around the world where they would be equipped and empowered by a mighty move of The Holy Spirit ~ that His power would flow from this mountain like rivers of gold, flowing across this nation and out to the nations of the world igniting revival fires everywhere they went. ,
Since Joyce and I moved to this valley in the eighties, almost every prophet who has come to visit us has seen rivers of gold or rivers of fire flowing from this place. ,
The Holy Spirit has been whispering to us that now is the time for what the prophets have seen and been prophesying for well over a hundred years to be fulfilled. ,
In recent years, prophets have been prophesying that revival would break out in San Diego and spread from Mexico to Canada up the West Coast of the United States and from there across this nation and around the world. It was close to two years ago that revivalists, Jerame and Miranda Nelson, together with Joshua Mills came to San Diego to do a three-day conference. An awesome revival started that is still going with powerful manifestations of the Spirit of God. ,
Joyce and I have been privileged to attend and minister in several of these meetings that are now reaching thousands around the world through the technology of live-streaming of these meetings. ,
October 30, a Monday night, God moved in powerful manifestations of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit as Jerame ministered to a packed-out group here at Big Bear Lake. The remarkable glory of God filled the room as believers, hungry for the over whelming manifestation of His presence, came from numerous churches both here in our valley and from many other areas.Remarkable manifestations of healings took place in the lives of those who attended.
 ,
Many received encouraging prophetic words. Everyone felt they had been in the life-changing presence of God. An hour after we closed the meeting, many were still basking in His presence. It seemed no one wanted to leave His glory. ,
People began to stream from here to Lake Arrowhead, Colton, Riverside, Redlands, Victorville, Palm Desert, Acton, Las Vegas, and His gold and His glory went with them just as He has said.
 ,
Because Jerame, along with us, feels revival is here, he has agreed to come back on November 27th. If you are hungry for more of the awesome, life-changing presence of God, come and join us.
 ,

TESTIMONIES ,

One lady who pastors a church with her husband in Colton, California asked another pastor to come with her. She sent us the following report the next day: Papa Gill, Praise Report, I received an instant healing in my lungs last night (recent x-rays showed 6 spots) and I walked up our stairs at 12:45 am without stopping when I got home, first time in a long time. And, I slept the whole night long which is a miracle, and I truly FELT God doing another level of healing on my whole spinal column. Much pain was lifted off last night. The Lord said He’s healing my back in levels and to keep moving and speaking to my whole spinal column and spend MORE time in His presence! Something is about to happen in Colton, CA, for HIS glory and honor, something I’ve been waiting my whole life time to see. ,
Another pastor wrote: This gathering was better than a home run with all the bases loaded!
,
MOUNTAIN TOP ENCOUNTER ,
Last September, we held our 16th annual Mountain Top Encounter at a local hotel here at Big Bear Lake. Everyone was saying it was the absolute best, life-changing MTE we have experienced. On the last night, Holy Spirit Mantles were falling on everyone as they walked through the colorful “Mantle Tunnel.,
We have received reports saying there has been a powerful increase in the anointing of the Holy Spirit and miracles in their lives since attending the Mountain Top Encounter. The praise and worship times were overwhelming as Steve Swanson led us into the amazing presence of God. ,
Ambassador Clyde Rivers’ message overwhelmed us all. Revival fires were lit as Jerame and Miranda Nelson released a revivalist anointing. Henry and Grace Falany shared their passion for revival which has been so much a part of their ministry since the Feast of Fire Revival broke out in their church years ago. Gershom Sikaala challenged us to experience greater measures of revival in our daily walk and ministries. It was a great blessing of God for Joyce and I to again lead and share in this year’s Mountain Top Encounter. ,
One of the most astounding times happened when we were all so caught-up in the overwhelming presence of God that absolute silence fell on us. It lasted for what some have said was forty-five minutes. We had been giving Him praise and giving Him worship and then…He completely stopped us and ministered to each of us where we needed it. Those were moments none of us can forget.

,

Much of the meetings were recorded and you can still experience what happened by going to:
GOING ON
 ,
Jerame and Miranda Nelson have been bringing their Interns for a time of training at our International Ministry Building here at Big Bear Lake for the past couple of months. I had the privilege of ministering to them following the last Mountain Top Encounter. The next day, I was an opening speaker for the International School of Ministry Conference that was held again at the large Rock Church in San Bernardino, California. The theme of this year’s conference was “Health and Healing” and I was asked to lead and minister a Miracle Service on the second night of the conference. After I spoke on Healing in Our Redemption, about eighty people raised their hands to say that after checking out their bodies they had received a manifestation of healing.
 ,

As the meeting continued, others came forward for healing. One young lady who had suffered extreme pain in her body for numerous years took my hand and came out of her wheelchair. She began to walk and we even started to run together. She later testified that she had been completely healed of her extremely painful condition. Deaf ears were opened. Those with many pains in their bodies were healed as Nasir Iqbal and others ministered healing to them. There have been a hundred or more confirmed healing testimonies that have come in. , God continues to move in an awesome way as we keep going ~ preaching The Gospel of The Kingdom in many nations and across this land of America. We are especially blessed by the revival that has broken out here in Big Bear Lake, California. , Words cannot express our excitement and appreciation for each one who is partnering with us in prayer and generous giving as we keep going bringing The Fire and Glory of God’s breathtaking presence across this land and to many nations. , Your missionaries to the world, , A.L. & Joyce Gill

Forcibly Advancing the Kingdom of God

Forcibly Advancing the Kingdom of God

 ;

 ;

The Creation of the Kingdom of God

This has been a wonderful month as God has continued to reveal more about the Kingdom of God. It is not just a concept to accept in a general way. It’s more real than what we see around us. It’s more real than the kingdoms we read about in the daily news. In Matthew, we learn that the Kingdom of God was created for us! The kingdom (was) prepared for you from the founda­tion of the world (25:34). How does that truth affect us? When God created Adam and Eve, the first thing He said about them was Let them have dominion over this earth and everything in it (Genesis 1:26). This was God’s purpose for the creation of mankind. They were created in His likeness to rule and reign, not over each other, but over the earth and everything in it. They were to establish the Kingdom of God on this earth. This “dominion” was lost when Adam and Eve sinned, but God still had a plan. Our destiny was restored when Jesus rose from the dead. He declared: “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 16:19). And then in Hebrews, we learn that Jesus is waiting for one thing. He is waiting until His enemies are made His footstool. His not going to do this for us. He is waiting for His body to wake up, discover their created purpose and forcibly advance the Kingdom of God on this earth.  That is what the writer of the book of Hebrews tells us. This Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool (10:12,13). We have lost so much of what the Bible actually teaches. We have lost so much of the miraculous.  We haven’t understood that when we are born-again, we become partakers of the Kingdom of God. At the moment of salvation, we become partners with God. We are to rule and reign over this earth as His representatives. Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God (John 3:3). Jesus said: From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force (Matthew 11:12). In Luke He said: Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you (Luke 10:19). He also said: I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it (Matthew 16:18). This sounds like war, but we are not to war in the flesh. It’s time to war in the spirit. It’s time the church, which Jesus said He would build, wakes up and steps into its created purpose and forcibly advances His Kingdom using spiritual weapons. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds (2 Corinthians 10:4).

What is the Kingdom of God?

We are given a definition of the Kingdom of God in Romans, For the kingdom of God is not food and drink, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit (14:17). Righteousness: God says if we seek His kingdom and His right­eousness, all these things will be added to us. “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you (Matthew 6:33). Peace: Unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this (Isaiah 9:6, 7). Joy: Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field (Matthew 13:44). Living in the Kingdom of God, we are to experience righteousness, peace and Joy! There is so much more to learn about the Kingdom of God. As we understand what God has created for us, our lives will change. We will stop thinking of ourselves as victims and begin to see ourselves as victors!

Advancing the Kingdom of God

On the way to Malaysia, I was a keynote speaker at the annual Kingdom Congressional International Alliance Conference in Portland, Oregon and then ministered on Sunday at The Rock of The Harbor Church in Gig Harbor, Washington. I ministered on the subject of Being the Kings of the Kingdom in both of these meetings. As I continued on to Malaysia, I was blessed to have both Charlie Fisher and Nathan French who are two of our powerfully anointed spiritual sons ministering with me. Our ministry in Malaysia began with a three-day conference on The Glory of God where God moved in awesome manifestations of His glory and power. Many were healed and slain under the power of God in these meetings as we all experienced the overwhelming glory of His presence. One of those who attended was a young lady who was completely healed of fourth-stage breast and liver cancer during our meetings there last year. The following weekend we spent three days of ministering in a powerful growing church which included the training of their leaders on How to Hear the Voice of God as we minister in the gifts of The Holy Spirit in our daily lives and ministry. Again, God moved in a powerful way as I ministered on  The  Gospel of the Kingdom. People were saved, filled with The Holy Spirit and many exciting healing miracles took place. During the week, I had the privilege of ministering to the cell-group leaders of a large Burmese speaking church in Malaysia with about three hundred in attendance. Most of these are refugees from the nation of Burma (now Myanmar) and are the most “turned on” and excited group of young people that I have ever ministered to. They were so hungry and excited for more of God that they never sat down or stopped leaping and shouting during the meetings which lasted until 3 or 3:30 in the morning. During one of these meetings, I ministered on The Love of The Father. At the end as I was hugging them and imparting the Father’s love, most of them were slain under the power of God. I also taught on New Creation Image and The Authority of the Believer and other foundational teach­ings. The auditorium was packed with 800 or more in attendance as I ministered in their weekly church service on the subject of The Kings of the Kingdom. During this time, I was able to give them 100 packages that Joyce had prepared. These contained copies of all our manuals in both the Burmese and English languages on “thumb drives” so they could download all of our teachings in their own language onto their cell phones and portable devices. During the past month, translation work was begun on our manuals being translated into the Japanese language, as well as more being done and completions on several other langua­ges at an average cost of $3,000 per language. All of this is possible because of faithful partners like you who pray and give so generously to this ministry.

Going on

As we write this, we are preparing for our eighteenth annual Mount­­ain Top Encounter. Delegates are com­ing from around the world for three nights and two days in the awesome, life-changing glory of God. Steve Swanson will again be leading our large and powerfully anointed worship team. Many outstanding prophetic voices will be sharing what God is saying and doing today. Powerful, prophetic words have been given of spiritual mantles being downloaded on those who attend and, as always, we are expecting overwhelming manifestations of God’s glory. I will be the opening nights keynote speaker at this year’s ISOM (International School of Ministry) Conference that is again being held at The Rock Church in San Bernardino, California, October 4–6. This year’s theme is on “Health and Healing” and I am scheduled to do A Miracle Service on Thursday evening. Delegates from the ISOM schools, which include our teachings, will be gathered from the 147 nations where these schools are located. Joyce and I continue to be amazed at all God is doing. We are so thankful He allows us to have a part. We are so thankful for your prayers and your support. You make it all possible! Your missionaries to the world, A.L. ‘n Joyce

The Gospel of Salvation - Or the Gospel of the Kingdom?

al-joyce-cr Is it the Gospel of Salvation 

                  or the Gospel of the Kingdom?                 

What did Jesus do? Before leaving this earth, Jesus instructed His disciples: Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. (Mark 16:15) But which gospel were they to preach? Is there a difference? Is it the gospel of salvation or the gospel of the Kingdom? Jesus said: This gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14) Everywhere Jesus went He was preaching the gospel of the Kingdom.  He mentioned the Kingdom of God over a hundred times! This was the subject He talked about the most! So what is the gospel of the Kingdom? Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the Kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. (Matthew 4:24) In “the church of our tradition,” the churches we grew up in, we were taught that the power gifts of the Holy Spirit had ceased; that they weren’t needed anymore. These same people taught us that the kingdom of God was off in the distant future sometime after we died. How sad that these two teachings have drained much of the existing church of the power manifestations of God. How exciting it is when we begin to understand that the gospel of Salva­tion is the entry into the Kingdom of God. But most of the teaching, the emphasis, in the past has left many standing just inside the door having a position with God for all eternity but no under­standing of how we are to live today! To define the Kingdom of God would take a whole book. But a simplified definition is: God ruling over, and through, the hearts and lives of those who willingly submit to His authority. Something different happens when we teach the gospel of The Kingdom. In Matthew, we just read that Jesus taught and preached the Kingdom of God healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of diseases. Living in the kingdom of God brings us into the power of God. We have an amazing promise found in Revelation. Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven saying, “The Kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” (11:15) When we, the body of Christ, begin to operate in the power of Almighty God, the world around us will change! People, even those within the body, will know what Jesus’ principles for living are. Kings and Priests In Revelation 19:16, Jesus is called The King of kings. If Jesus is the King, who are the kings? We find the answer in Revelation 1:6, God has made us Kings and Priests unto our God. We are both kings and priests in His kingdom – now – today. Priests minister unto The Lord as the early church did in Antioch (Acts 13). They have an intimate relationship as true worshipers of the Lord. Kings of this earth take dominion and rule over the nations they have been given. The first thing God said about Adam and Eve when they were created was “Let them have domin­ion!”(Genesis 1:26) We know they surrendered the keys of rulership when they sinned. They gave their position to Satan, but Jesus came! He took back the keys and gave them to those who believe in His name! Jesus said: “And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:19) It is all about the gospel of the Kingdom! The Kingdom of God is brought from heaven to earth as we, His kings on earth, are taking dominion the way God does as the King in Heaven! Another verse in Revelation says, God has made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth. (5:10) In Matthew, Jesus said: from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. (11:12) We, as kings, are to forcibly advance the kingdom of God here on earth as we reign and make kingly decrees. By me, Kings reign, and rulers decree justice. (Proverbs 8:15) The Kingdom of God is not about getting from earth to heaven. Our job now is about bringing the Kingdom of God and the will of God to earth. A Transition Time A few years ago, God spoke to Joyce and I about a transition that had already taken place in the heavenly realm. Jesus came as the sacrificial Lamb to take away the sins of the world. But now, He was getting ready to come back as the Lion of the tribe of Judah to rule and reign! Today, He is saying: Learn to rule and reign with me! Changing our Thinking One day, the disciples came to Jesus and asked Him to teach them how to pray. He said to them, “When you pray, say: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name, Your Kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. (Luke 11:1,2) For this prayer to become a reality in our lives, we need to change our thinking; we need to understand what it means to be a king in God’s Kingdom on earth. David is a great example of this. His position in the house of Jesse was that of the youngest son. He was taking care of the sheep; the position of a hireling.  He was not even included to see Samuel when he came to anoint the next king. And yet, God had a plan, a call, a destiny and David was anointed by Samuel to one day become the king. Years later, he was anointed as king over Judah and then He was anointed King over all of Israel. Something changed when David received this third and highest level of anointing. We read in 2 Samuel 5: 12, And David perceived that the LORD had established him king over Israel, and that He had exalted His kingdom for his people Israel’s sake. David’s thinking about himself changed. He perceived that he was the king. He recognized, felt, grasped, understood that he was the king established by the Lord. It was not a reward to him for his faithfulness; it was not a position of pride; it was for the sake of the people of Israel. Immediately, all the Philistines came against him and David boldly asked the Lord if He would deliver them into his hands. David went up against the enemy and defeated them and had a great breakthrough saying, “The Lord has broken through my enemies like a breakthrough of water.” We have been established as kings in the Kingdom of God on earth and we need, like David, to “fully perceive” what it means to be a king. A new generation of kings is arising who have moved from just loving God and looking forward to being with Him in heaven some day, to operating in their God-given power to change the world around them. Notice that David was set in as the King of Israel for his people Israel’s sake. The people around us need us to operate in our God-given authority! “And when this “gospel of the Kingdom” has been preached in all the world as a witness to all nations, then the end shall come.”

* More to come next month!

Moving On As I write this, I am leaving to minister as a Keynote Speaker at the annual conference of Kingdom Congressional International Alli­ance in Portland, Oregon. This is an organization of apostles and prophets who are forcibly advancing the Kingdom of God in the marketplace. Next Sunday (August 27), I am scheduled to minister in Gig Harbor (Seattle area) Washington before continuing on that night for two weeks of ministry in Malaysia. All of this is possible because of your faithful partnership through your prayers and generous giving. Please pray for both myself and for Joyce as she keeps multiplying our ministry through media to nation after nation. I will be back in Big Bear Lake in time for our annual Mountain Top Encounter September 26–28. Registration is free and you are invited for another 3 nights and two days this year in the awesome, life-changing presence of God. We encourage you to contact our office and register early. The cut-off date for the special room rates of only $89.00 per night at The Lodge at Big Bear Lake, Cali­fornia is at 5 PM on September 11. You won’t want to miss this year’s Mountain Top Encounter, an intimate, life-changing encounter with God on the Mountain Top! Your missionaries to the world,

In Psalms 37:23 we read, The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD …

/donate/A few weeks ago, I had an impression to go to Central California to be with Henry and Grace Falany as they ministered in several locations. I didn’t know why, but we wanted to be with them.
We were supposed to leave Saturday morning, but Friday night and Saturday morning, everything began to go wrong. Joyce finally said, “A.L. we could cancel this trip. Henry could take your speaking engagement Sunday morning. All the other meetings are Henry and Grace’s.”
But I didn’t feel peace in doing that. We pushed on and finally were able to leave for the drive about three hours later then we intended. Joyce said, “Let’s wear clothes we can wear to the meeting. I feel we will not have time to go to the guest-house first.”
The freeway up the coast was like a long parking lot. We were moving at a very slow pace. Yes, we realized, we will need to go directly to the church. Then, a cutoff we had been looking forward to since it would take us off the slow freeway was closed because of the Whittier Fire near Lake Cachuma. We had to go back to the freeway and the GPS said we would arrive at the church at 8:15. The meeting was scheduled to start at 6:30. We talked to Henry and told him our situation. If it’s that late, we will go to the guest-house we said.
But God! 
How amazed we were when we arrived at the church at 6:20! We walked in to everyone’s surprise! What had happened? We didn’t know it, but at some point our car was translated and moved through time to get us to the church, not only on time, but early! Henry and I did team-teaching and God worked powerful miracles.
Sunday afternoon the Detwiler Fire started in Mariposa County. It was burning near Henry’s family ranch. The four of us joined together praying for the safety of their family home, but by that evening our prayers were changed to: “Your Kingdom Come. Your Will be done.” We were no longer speaking our desires, our will, and all of us knew it but did not say anything about it.
Monday morning we learned that the house Henry’s father had built was the very first structure to burn. His mother, brother and wife had evacuated and they were safe, but the house and all of their possessions were gone. (They are insured.) Henry and Grace’s home was about 35 miles away and we didn’t think it was in danger, but Henry kept feeling “Go home. You’re going to be needed at home.”
Finally, he asked, “Will you take our meetings Monday night and Tuesday morning?” We did. But far more important, God did!
Before the Falanys got home, the fire was moving in the direction of their home. Soon the whole town of Mariposa was evacuated. Their daughter works in the hospital and she was called in to help with the evacuation and then, because of road closures, could not get back home. Henry and Grace were able to pick up their grandchildren and bring them to their home. By then, they were also under Evacuation Advisory. We helped them get out the word and God’s people began to pray. These are a few words from Henry’s last email,
“Ok, we’re still here (home)! Smile! It appears that yesterday morning the fire either stopped, or slowed to a crawl, in its advance in our direction. 
 
Coincidence or Holy Ghost?
 
The fire is still serious and growing in the other 3 directions – 70,000 acres/109 square miles – as of 7 am.”
What if?
~ What if I hadn’t heard God’s instructions to go and be with the Falanys in Central California?
  ~ What if we hadn’t persisted when everything came against our going?
  ~  What if Henry hadn’t heard and persisted in going home, even when it seemed there was nothing they could do?
If we hadn’t been caught in that very slow traffic, we wouldn’t have experienced the wondrous power of God as He translated us through that traffic to arrive at the church an hour and forty-five minutes before we could expect to be there. As a result, many were encouraged to believe for their miracles!
There were also many miracles Tuesday morning as we ministered on “The Glory of God” in the Healing Rooms in Santa Maria. After the meeting, we left with people who were slain under the awesome healing presence of God still laying on the floor. Rick Taylor, who is the International Director of the Healing Rooms, took us to see other parts of their building. After some time had passed, we were back in the entrance area getting ready to leave when our attention was drawn to a lady who was standing there obviously in a lot of pain in her lower back. She had suffered the intense pain for 46 years and on a scale of 1 to 10, she said the pain level was about 8. “But I don’t want to bother you,” she stated several times. We all began to pray in the Spirit and Joyce stepped closer to her and put her hands on both sides of her face. She began to command the spine to relax – for every vertebrae, disc, muscle, and tendon to come into perfect alignment with the will of God. Joyce felt a small circular movement, like a small, gentle tornado, begin in her neck and then start moving down her spine. Suddenly she crumpled to the floor, half sitting against a couch. Rick leaned close and asked, “What happened to the pain?”
She whispered back as she was weeping: “It’s gone!” After 46 years of intense pain, she was instantly healed! Joyce said later, “I was holding her in my hands, feeling God moving down her spine, when suddenly she wasn’t there! She was on the floor.”
No Bells and Whistles
When God speaks, so often it is just an impression, a little nudge to do something, but how exciting it is when we step out in faith and do it! Joyce and my desire is to be more obedient, to listen for His still small voice more to see more miracles on a daily basis. Remember, it is all about:
Being at the right place at the right time and speaking the right thing!
Going On
Joyce and I are leaving this week for two weeks of ministry in Texas. We will be back in Southern California for a short time for ministry in Burbank and Glendale. Then leaving for the KCIA (Kingdom Congressional International Alliance) conference in Portland, Oregon where I will be speaking again this year. I will also be ministering at a church in Gig Harbor, Washington, before leaving for two weeks in Malaysia.
In Malaysia, I will be ministering in a three-day conference and also three days of leadership meetings and miracle services in a church where a lady was healed during my meetings last year of a stage-four, cancerous brain tumor.
In between those two weekends of meetings, I will be teaching the opening week for a large, advanced School of Supernatural Living for refugees from Myanmar. This large church and School of Supernatural Living was founded by a young lady who at the age of 18 graduated from The School of Acts where I have been teaching for close to 25 years in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
I have never experienced such excitement among the students as I did last year among these refugee students from Myanmar. Many are now coming back for three months of advanced training. A tremendous revival has broken out.
I will be arriving back home in mid-September two weeks before our annual Mountain Top Encounter. Again this year we are expecting another three nights and two days in the awesome, life-changing presence and glory of God.

Registration is free but be sure to register early to reserve your seats. We will meet again in the ballroom of “The Lodge at Big Bear Lake” a Holiday Inn Resort. There is also a special room rate at the hotel for those registering by the cut-off date of September 11, 2017.

Coming into His Presence: Sixteen years ago, God spoke to us to invite our spiritual family together for a “Mountain Top Encounter” in His presence. It was not to be a typical conference with scheduled speakers speaking on, and limited, to a certain time or schedule. We were to minister to the Lord in high praise and intimate worship and then He would minister unto us through one another. It was to be a time in His intimate presence where we would corporately receive spontaneous and prophetic words from the Lord.
 ,
A Life-Changing Experience: Ever since that time, our annual Mountain Top Encounter has been an awesome life-changing experience in the overwhelming presence of The Lord. There have been times when there have been manifestations of golden oil, gold dust, feathers and jewels appearing. Pictures have been taken of people being hit by flames and balls of fire. We have heard the overwhelming sounds of heaven and have witnessed the angels as they began to play the keyboard and the angels could be heard singing, “Holy, Holy, Holy.” Every time has been different, but the most important thing has been that everyone who attended knew they had been in the awesome, overwhelming, life-changing presence of the Lord.
 ,
A pastor from Ohio recently said, “I don’t know how we would make it through the year if we didn’t have this special time to look forward to each year!” It’s strengthened all of us. It’s getting to know our Heavenly Father in new ways. It’s a time of healing ~ physically, emotionally, spiritually, and financially. God knows each one of our needs, and when we step aside from the business of our normal lives and come into His presence, it is so wonderful to experience what can happen!

Ministering through the Internet  This week we received messages from a couple in Houston, Texas, saying: “We were good church members for 25 years and then we got hold of your material, The Authority of the Believer. The first time we prayed like this, we saw a psychic leave our neighborhood in less than 10 days.  As the Lord leads, we have been seeing principalities come down in Los Angeles, Washington, DC, Cuba & Mexico.  We have some amazing stories of God’s victory and one that includes a communist nation that got a hold of your teachings.  We have been teaching The Authority of the Believer to our home group in Houston!  And better yet!!! My wife has been teaching it to inmates in 5 prisons in Texas and, in turn, they have been teaching it to other ladies in their units!!! Many have been writing to your office and receiving the gift of your materials.”

NOTE: All of our manuals in 25 languages, including English, can now be downloaded free of charge 

(together with all of our audio and video teachings of these courses) from the links on our website:

Follow up on Testimony from Kenya  Last month, we sent you the email we received from Kenya. I have been in contact with this new pastor and his wife, and now, they are planning on starting a Kingdom Training Center in their nation. Dr. Jack Tuls, who has been busy for many years starting Kingdom Training Centers all around the world, will be working with them on this project.
 ,
Returning to Malaysia  In two months, I will be returning to Malaysia where I will again be doing two series of meetings.  In one meeting last year, a young lady was completely healed of 4th stage breast cancer that had spread to her liver.  In the Myanmar School, the excitement was overwhelming and tremendous revival broke out following my time of ministry.  Our goal is always not just to see miracles happen but to equip believers to do the works of Jesus.  What joy it has been to receive messages since I was there of these students stepping out in boldness doing just that!  The miracles did not stop when I left town.  They were just beginning!
 ,
This year, they have asked me to be the opening week’s teacher of a new, advanced training school for the Myanmar students who have completed their basic Kingdom training.  This trip will cost about $3,000 for travel and other expenses and we need your help!  These are some of the awesome Myanmar students whose lives you are sowing into:
It’s together that we can forcibly advance the Kingdom of God in many nations!

Equipping Believers for the Harvest

AL Ministering4Equipping Believers for the Harvest

In 1972, Joyce and I were managing the largest chain of Christian Bookstores in the Western United States when we received the Baptism in The Holy Spirit. Immediately, everything began to change in our lives. We began to know God in a real and personal way. Soon, we had the privilege of ministering with Charles and Francis Hunter in their earliest  Miracle Services.
.
Three years later, we were in the middle of a move of God known as the Charismatic Renewal. At this time, I was Administrative Assistant to Dr. Ralph Wilkerson at Melodyland Christian Center in Anaheim, California.  Leaders like Kathryn Kuhlman were frequent guest speakers.
.
Then God moved us back to our hometown of Houston, Texas, where we worked full time with Charles and Frances. I was Executive Vice President of their powerful healing ministry and Joyce became their Office Manager.
.
During this time, we became close friends with Pastor John and Dodie Osteen and by the early eighties were serving on the ministerial staff of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. We were ministering and traveling with John Osteen.
.
During this time in addition to our other ministries, we started an Intern Pastor’s Training and then I became the Founding Director of Lakewood Bible Institute. We were blessed with 120 full-time students the first year.
.
We were so blessed to be part of the Charismatic movement at Melodyland, the large healing crusades with the Hunters and the Word of Faith movement with the Osteens. We were able to observe the tremendous things God was doing.
.
Joyce and I caught the vision of reaching the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ as we traveled and ministered in the nations with the Hunters, Dr. Lester Sumerall and John Osteen. God placed a vision in our hearts for reaching the nations with the gospel of Jesus Christ as He burned two verses into our spirits.
And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14)
Ask of Me, and I will give You The nations for Your inheritance, 
And the ends of the earth for Your possession. (Psalm 2:8)
.
God had been using great men and women who were operating in the powerful gifts of the Holy Spirit as He worked with them “confirming His Word with signs, wonders and healing miracles.” The fields were truly white unto harvest, but the laborers were few. There was too much to be done by a few or even many leaders.
.
God had an even better plan! What if every believer could be equipped and trained to do the works of Jesus? What if “miracle evangelism” could happen through the hands of all believers on a daily basis and not just through the hands of a few? What if every church had the resources to “equip believers to do the work of the ministry,” the very works Jesus did, in their daily lives and ministries? The apostle Paul wrote,
He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, 
and some pastors and teachers.
.
But all were to have a common goal:
for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 
till we all come to the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, 
to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ (Ephesians 4:11-13)
With a vision and mandate from God to provide these important, practical resources free of charge to ministries and churches in nations around the world in their own languages, Joyce and I began “Gill Ministries” in 1983.
.
These training tools are founda­tional resources which are Jesus-centered, practical, life-changing and taught in the power of The Holy Spirit. For many years, we have made the audio and video teachings available free of charge, along with the foreign language manuals, through our website: www.gillministries.com.
 .
The manuals are designed so that each person who has completed a course will have the manual to “teach it to others who shall be able to teach others also.” In English, there are accompanying audio and video teachings on most of these courses, also provided free of charge through connecting links on our website.
 .
Hundreds of Kingdom Training Centers have been established in churches, in groups or individual believers that are meeting in homes.
This past month, the Lord has been speaking to Joyce and I about releasing the manuals in English for free duplication also. As we were praying about how we were to do this, the Lord sent this email to us from Kenya, Africa, as confirmation we were hearing from Him. For everyone who has prayed for us or supported us in anyway, this is your praise report!
 .
“Shalom Servant of God, 
“My wife and I got saved after we had been on your website. Your teachings touched our heart and burned us so much. We got to your ministry website for three days checking on the teachings and we could not hold more. We felt like something prompted us to seek spiritual prayers for our salvation.
.
“We later got saved through your website. We came back to your website daily in the evening, read everything on your ministry website as we prayed much. The Lord started to put a burden to us concerning praying for you. My wife and I fasted for 12 days specifically praying for you. Our heart started burning and desired more the Word of the Lord.
.
“We started to sing in our house and pray for hours every evening. Three days later our 3 neighbors joined us as we prayed together and they gave their lives to Jesus. In about one month people joined us in our home fellowship.
.
“One night when we were praying around 3 AM the Lord spoke to my wife for us to open a fellowship that will align with your ministry website teachings. We prayed about it in the morning and our hearts were at peace.
,
“It’s now 6 months since we started our fellowship and we have increased to 70 people. My wife and I are emailing you to know that we are birthed from your ministry website and we have been using your teachings all of these times.
.
“Please keep praying for us as we are your fellowship in Kenya Africa.
“Your spiritual Son, Joshua”
We have spent over 30 years studying and writing this material. We have taught the courses and then watched to see how the teaching was received, and then we have revised it again and again striving to make the Lord’s Word clear. Our one goal has been to develop strong believers who know the Word and then step out in boldness to reach those around them. We have taught in the School of Acts in Malaysia and Indonesia for 20 years and we have been part of the International School of Ministry for over 20 years. We know how strong believers become as they are taught the Word of God in a powerful and consistent format. As more and more believers begin to do the works of Jesus, we will reach the world and then Jesus can come back.
 .
These manuals and written teachings are on the Internet in PDF files. One year, we received notice that these files had been opened over a million times. There is such a hunger for strong teaching from God’s Word around the world.
For years, we have made much of these resources available at no cost for believers. Now, the Lord is saying make it all available at no cost; to step into new areas (for us) and have apps designed making this material easier to find.
Joyce and I are going through each English manual, again, making revisions. Our goal is to have them all revised and on the Internet in the next few weeks.
 .
We invite you to join with so many others who are daily being equipped to do the works of Jesus and are being discipled to come to the full measure of the stature of Christ. We ask you to tell others about these powerful resources found at: www.gillministries.com.
Yes, we do still need your help. Some of the steps God is leading us to take could be expensive. We are asking God to send those to help that are experienced in these areas! There is a great revival coming and we will be prepared to teach new believers by way of the Internet.
 ,
By being a regular monthly partner of Gill Ministries, you already are, or can be, a significant part in equipping believers around the world to reach their own villages, towns, cities and nations with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
.
God bless you for your obedience to what God is telling you to do. Together, we are having an important part in reaching the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ before His soon return.

Kingdom Provision

The Vision

“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come”
(Matthew 24:14) x
Thirty-four years ago with this passage of Scripture resonating in our chests, Joyce and I launched Gill Ministries. We had a passion to reach the world with the “Gospel of The Kingdom.” We knew this commission was too great for us to do it alone. But what if we could provide leadership and resources needed so churches in even the poorest areas could become “Kingdom Training Centers.”
 x
As the Founding Director of the Bible School at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, I was faced with the reality of the expensive cost of purchasing the needed training materials for just one Kingdom Training Center, much less the cost of purchasing the much needed practical, Jesus centered, Word-based curriculum that was taught in the power of The Holy Spirit for churches around the world. x
For years, it had been the tradition of churches to send those called to be pastors to Bible Schools for training. But with the revelation found in the fourth chapter of Ephesians ringing in our ears, we had caught the vision that those that God had called to function as apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers and evangelists were to “equip the saints” (every believer) to do the work of the ministry.  x
All believers were to be trained and equipped to be actively involved on a daily basis in “doing the work of the ministry.” We began to write the much needed teachings and have them translated into more and more languages so that we could make them available free-of-charge in many languages. x
Every local church, including small village churches, could then become “Kingdom Training Centers” actively involved in equipping believers to reach their own villages, towns, cities and nations with the “Gospel of the Kingdom.” x
Then, and only then, would it be possible for the “Great Com¬mission” to be fulfilled. We were faced with the challenge of the costly project of not only developing the curriculum including the teacher/student manuals but also the video and audio teachings to go with them. There was even the more costly project of having them translated into the major languages of the world. The vision was not only to develop the curriculum but to take it to the nations of the world. x
We had much to learn about God’s supernatural “Kingdom Provision.” At great expense, our ministry has now taken us to close to one-hundred nations and some of those over fifty times and our manuals are now being used to establish Kingdom Training Centers in nations around the world.

Revelation for Provision

;

When God first called us to international evangelism, we were financially challenged. Trying to live this Christian life in our own strength, we were not only broke financially but I had worked myself into total exhaustion and my health was broken. Every organ in my body was shutting down to the point that the doctor said there was nothing more they could do for me and I was going to die. ;
I was no longer able to work and it seemed like all hope was gone. It was at this point in 1968 when I was 33 years of age, that God finally got my attention. In total desperation I said, “Lord, I give up trying to live this Christian life in my own strength and with my own efforts.” ;
“I give up! I ask you to take over my life. I make you The Lord of my life.” It was right after this that the Lord completely healed me, restored our health, our lives and our finances.
;
For the first time since we were married, Joyce and I began to tithe ten percent of our income to the Lord, but the Lord also led us to give an additional 10% as our “offering” to the Lord for a total of 20% of our income. God had not only given me my health back, but He opened the windows of heaven and poured out His financial blessing upon us.
 ;

The Challenge

;

At one time soon after we had left the business world and I was assistant to the pastor of one of the largest churches in California, God led us to purchase a very large home that in the natural we couldn’t afford. God had put us in a seemingly impossible financial situation to teach us more about living in His supernatural provision. ;
In the natural, there was no way that we could continue to make the payments on that home. I was spending more and more time studying Kingdom finances and God began to speak to me about the three levels of provision that The Children of Israel lived under. ;
1. There was the provision of a slave – just enough to keep them alive to make the bricks in Egypt.
; 2. There was the provision as God led them through the wilderness with just enough for each day.
; 3. Then there was the provision in the land where there was an abundance of good things, a land “flowing with milk and honey, a land of sowing and reaping.” ;
God asked me: “Where do you want to live?” ;
I exclaimed: “In the Land!” ;
Then God said: “In the land there is a provision that comes by faith and obedience in sowing and reaping.” Then He asked me: “Will you believe me for a figure for your income this coming year?” ;
I said: “Yes, Lord.” As I prayed and listened to the Lord, He surprised me by giving me a figure that was twice what my current income was. ;
He then asked me again: “Will you really believe me for this amount?” ;
I said: “Yes, Lord!” then He said: “Start giving on this amount.” ;
At a time when it seemed like we were in an impossible situation, we doubled our giving to God from 20% to 40% of our income. ;
To our amazement, again, God opened the windows of heaven in an even greater measure and not only did God double our income, but we sold that house less than two years later for twice what we paid for it. ;

Make God your Senior Partner! ;

For years we were comfortable with what we were giving, and then, about 20 years later we were challenged to make God the “Senior Partner” in our lives with the goal of increasing our giving to at least 51% of our income. We spent time praying about that! Finally, we both agreed we wanted to do it but agreed it might take us five years to reach this new goal. ;
The windows of heaven flew open even wider. A business deal that had gone bad was resurrected and when the large settlement came in, we gave it all to the Lord. The apostle Paul’s words became so real: ;
He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly,  and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver …
Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness  (2 Corinthians 9:6,7,10) ;
We met our goal and far surpassed it the very first year. ;

Sowing in Rich Soil ;

We could go on and on telling what God has done. When we started our new walk turning our finances completely over to God, we had no idea of the challenging and joyous times we would be walking through. ;

God has brought us to the freedom of debt-free living and our desire is that you would experience it too! ; We have learned to: Hear from God and give what He says give, and give it where He says.

God had not only led us to be givers in obedience to the Lord but He taught us the importance of sowing into “rich soil” for the advancement of His Kingdom. At one time, we had asked the Lord to “Give us a vision so large that He might have to move his little finger to accomplish it.” He said: ;
“Ask of Me, and I will give You The nations for Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth for Your possession” (Psalm 2:8) ;
We share these things with you with the prayer that you will continue to walk in greater and greater measures of God’s Kingdom Provision. ;
We pray for our faithful, financial partners every day asking that each one will continue to experience greater and greater measures of healing and of “His Supernatural Kingdom Provision.” ;
We ask you to prayerfully consider sowing, or continue to sow, in greater measure into the good soil of His Kingdom through Gill Ministries. ;
God has continued to open greater and greater doors to the nations, and together, more and more translations are being completed and more and more Kingdom Training Centers are being established. ;
God is giving us the nations for our inheritance and the ends of the earth for our possession. ;
Your partnership is important to us and to God. ;
God bless you for your faithful obedience as you become more and more an extravagant giver to the Kingdom of God as God continues to open the windows of heaven and pours out such a blessing that you won’t be able to contain it.

Miracles, Miracles, Miracles
al-joyce-crJoyce  and I have just returned from two weeks of meetings in the Cleveland area and in Celina, Ohio. Remarkable healings took place in both cities.

Pastor Bobby

Pastor Bobby from the Cleveland area wrote: Maggie said she had a growth that kept her from being able to breathe through her nose and now it is open. She can breathe through her nose again.

But the funny part of the story is she doesn’t remember how she got home other than when she left the church building. She said she wandered all over the place and couldn’t find her way home. She ended up almost 20 miles away and was on the phone talking to her sister saying, “Nothing here looks familiar.” Her sister said to use her GPS to find her way home. She pushed the “home” button and it told her how to get home. Maggie is 68 years old and has lived here all her life! She lives about one and a half miles from the church! She doesn’t know how she ended up 20 miles away. She said she just turned here and turned there and just wandered around. She said she was glad she had a GPS in her car and a sister who told her to use it!

Pastor Justin

Justin, the pastor who invited us to come to their church in Celina, wrote: For about twelve years I have been suffering with persistent pain in my neck. Chiropractic treatments had failed to get the pain to go away. But one night in your meetings as we were all shouting praises to God in the Spirit for all of God’s many miracles, the pain was instantly gone.

Chris

Another man (Chris) who had been suffering a very serious and painful sinus condition for a long time received the full manifestation of his healing. He sent the following report: The symptoms were slowly getting worse and worse over time. I went to my family doctor a few times over the years and they gave me some antibiotics that helped some but did not solve the problem. I was recommended to a specialist to be evaluated for sinus surgery, but was always hesitant to go down that path. (He wanted to receive his healing from God.) I tried many medicines and natural remedies. Many of them helped manage the symptoms but none of them solved the underlying problem. Over the years, I prayed for healing and asked others to lay hands on me several times. I even received relief for a time when my wife and children prayed for me. Unfortunately, the sinus problems came back to haunt me. But in all this time, God has also been moving in my life to build my faith and dependence on Him. Over the past several months, my symptoms were becoming worse than ever. It was starting to bring me to a point of desperation. It was affecting the way I ate and the way I breathe. It was starting to affect me in ways that made it difficult to feel normal. My symptoms were getting so bad that it was past the point of just affecting my actions; it was starting to take over my thoughts. I had to think about how I could manage my symptoms continually throughout the day. I was starting to live in fear that my sinuses would act up and I would have an embarrassing episode in front of friends or co-workers. I was starting to consider going through with sinus surgery because my condition was becoming unbearable. Day-after-day it was getting worse. I realized that my sickness was making it so that I was no longer living life normally. Before I committed myself to surgery, there was an announcement that A.L. Gill would be coming to our church and that he had a powerful healing ministry. I prayed to God and I told Him that I needed a healing. I told Him that I couldn’t keep on going like I was and that I was believing to receive my healing during this event. I even told Him that if I didn’t receive healing I would have to turn to the doctors and pursue surgery. But I had a great desire to receive my healing from God and not through medicine. Now, I know that you don’t have to have a special event or a famous speaker to receive healing from God, but I also was being told that A.L. has a special anointing for healing in his life. I was getting to a breaking point. So I began to pray and stir up my faith to raise my expectations.

A Good Report

When A.L. came to our church, we did start to see many healings. Praise God for His miraculous power and the love He pours out on us! On Sunday morning, I made my way forward to seek healing from Jesus. I quickly explained my situation to A.L. When he laid hands on me, I felt the anointing and power of God come upon me. I didn’t immediately feel any change in my condition but I did feel full of Gods power and glory! I proclaimed thanks and praise to Jesus, my faith was built up and I believed that the healing was taking place even if I couldn’t tell for sure yet from my symptoms. A few hours later, I truly started to see and feel the truth. My first indication came when I took in a breath and noticed that the air seemed to be filling my lungs more fully. I noticed that I could smell the cleanliness of the air… something that I hadn’t done for a long time. I immediately began to praise and thank Jesus and to tell my family what God had done. The next morning, my thankfulness was renewed again. The first thing I noticed when I woke up in the morning was that I was breathing free and clear; and every time I took a breath, my lungs felt like they were overflowing with so much life and oxygen! The next several days brought more and more of the same. Throughout that day, I couldn’t help but notice that I could breathe normally, I could eat normally and I no longer had to do all the things that I had been doing to manage my symptoms. I was free! I have been continually reminded of God’s grace and His healing power every time I wake up and take my first breath; and every time I take a full breath, I am reminded and I can’t help but praise Jesus for what He has done for me!

“Heal the sick, raise the dead, cure those with leprosy,
and cast out demons. Give as freely as you have received!”
Now that I have received a healing miracle in my life, I feel emboldened to lay hands on the sick and to believe with an empowered faith for the healing that Jesus has won for us. (Mathew 10:8)
These are just a few of the many remarkable miracles that have manifested during the past two weeks. The pastors have asked us to come back every year. It is reports like these that keep us going and ministering the healing power of God both here and in many nations. And one of the most exciting things to us is seeing these same remarkable healing miracles happening through the hands of the believers we train to do the works of Jesus everywhere they go.
Note: The Gills are available to minister in your church. Please email us at gillministries@gillministries.com if you would like us to come.

If you don’t already have a copy of our manual, God’s Provision for Healing, we encourage you to order your personal copy. It is on the subject of Receiving and Ministering God’s Healing Power. This, along with our eleven other manuals available in twenty-five languages, are being used by individuals, churches, Bible Schools and Kingdom Training Centers that have been established in many churches and nations around the world. These resources (teacher/student manuals, video and audio teachings) are all available through our website:

We believe every local church needs to be actively fulfilling the important words Paul wrote to the Ephesians about Jesus: And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; (Ephesians 4:11-13).

Your faithful partnership is needed now to keep us going to the nations (193 so far and some of these over 50 times). God bless you for your generous tax deductible offerings!

2017 - A Year of Miracles

We believe 2017 is a year of Miracles

mte-alAnd we believe miracles are a sign to unbelievers. We believe this will be a challenging year, an exciting year and we believe this will be a year of revival around the world! God is releasing His people to operate in the supernatural and this includes you!
This past Sunday, we were ministering in a church in Southern California, and as Joyce and I told about the miracles we have seen, we could feel the excitement growing in all of us. God is not a respecter of persons and what He has done for us and through us, He wants to do through every believer! As the desire grew to move in the supernatural power of God, there was a release of boldness and a release of faith. For every one of us, it is time to “step out of the boat” and believe God will minister through each of us!
Peter was the one who was willing to climb out of the boat to walk on the water as he was seeing Jesus do.
It seems everywhere we go, people are talking about an abundance of breakthrough miracles in their lives, finances and ministries.
Years ago, we wrote a book called Miracles Are Still Happening. We would like to send a free copy of this exciting book of miracles that have happened in our lives and the  lives of our friends to everyone in the United States who writes and requests a free copy. This book is designed to release you into your miracle-working power.
Since receiving the baptism in the Holy Spirit forty-five years ago, we have experienced so many miracles in our lives that we couldn’t begin to mention all of them. We have experienced:
~ God’s supernatural protection,
~ provision of finances/resources,
~ multiplication of food,
~ being translated with our family in a nine-passenger station wagon across Los Angeles County,
~ stopping rain and fire storms,
~ and so many healing miracles
~ including creative miracles,
~ the raising of the dead,
~ and awesome glory manifestations. It would be impossible to even begin to mention them all.

God is a God of Miracles!

Everywhere Jesus and the early disciples went there were miracles, miracles, miracles. Jesus said: “The works that I do shall you do also, and even greater works than these shall you do also.”
As a “New Creation” in Jesus Christ, you are not the person you were before. “All things have become new!” God’s plan for every Spirit-filled believer is that we should expect and experience supernatural miracles in our daily lives and ministries.
We are best known for our teaching on “Supernatural Living through The Gifts of The Holy Spirit” and “God’s Provision for Healing – Receiving and Ministering God’s Healing Power” both in our twelve foundational manuals and with the accompanying audio and video teachings.
Some of the greatest miracles we have seen have been through the hands of believers who we have trained to do the works of Jesus as we have traveled and ministered both here in the United States and close to one hundred nations around the world.
As we teach believers how to operate in all of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and how to minister healing to the sick and have them practice on one another, the excitement is overwhelming.
~ We have seen empty eye-sockets filled with eyeballs and the person seeing perfectly normal.
~ A polio leg that was ten inches shorter than a young man’s good leg grew out to the same size as his good leg.
~ In another creative miracle through those we trained in The Philippines, a young man’s arm that was cut off just below the elbow grew back on including a new hand!

What an Awesome God We Serve!

We could go on and on telling about so many miracles that we have experienced. But our prayer is that you, too, will experience these same miracles in your daily life and ministry.
This week, we have another miracle service scheduled here in Southern California and we are also ministering healing and training others on how to minister healing to the sick in a conference and workshop this coming weekend.
In February, we have scheduled meetings both here in California and in Ohio. The first weekend in March we are doing a “Jesus Explosion” in Celina, Ohio and have scheduled meetings in India in June and will be in Asia in August and September.
Again this September, I will be the opening week’s teacher at an advanced, three-month Bible School in Malaysia for refugees from Myanmar. These will be students who have already completed their first three-month basic Bible training.
The young man who will be my interpreter again this year has caught the vision. His sister was one of my students at The School of Acts in Malaysia after coming to that nation as a refugee from Burma. After graduating, she went out and started winning many more refugees to Jesus and now they have a church with about eight-hundred in attendance.
Her brother reported leading 1,800 to Jesus just in one month’s time. As he leads worship, the whole class hears the angels singing and playing the keyboard as he leads with his guitar. He said gold dust has been falling in the meetings. He has been preaching on the streets with large numbers being saved and healed by the power of God.
You can keep up with what we are doing through our website: www.gillministries.com
You will find many resources that are available in many languages free of charge. This includes our Kingdom Training Courses using our manuals, audio and video teachings.
Yes, these kinds of reports keep coming in from nations all over the world. It is our prayer that this year of 2017 will be a year of exciting miracles in your life and ministry as well!
Don’t forget our offer to send a free copy of our book: Miracles are Still Happening to anyone in the United States who writes requesting a free copy. And then write and tell us about the exciting miracles that are happening in your life and ministry.
Your missionaries to the world,
A.L. ‘n Joyce

2017 The Year of Fulfilled Visions

2017 The Year of Fulfilled Visions

God is speaking powerful, encouraging words to Joyce and I as we are coming into this New Year and we want to share them with you. Say to them, the days are near when every vision will be fulfilled. (Ezekiel 12:23 NIV) Perhaps you, like so many others, have been holding on to a God-given vision for many years. Perhaps you, like so many of us, have been tempted to give up and to let go of your visions. But God is saying to us as we have never heard before that this coming year of 2017 is the year when we are going to see these dreams and visions fulfilled. Even as we entered the new Biblical year of 5777, we felt a major shift and acceleration which will lead to the fulfillment of God’s plans for the “restoration of all things.” Jesus answered and said to them, “Elijah truly is coming first and will restore all things (Matthew 17:11) We believe those of us who are walking in faith and obedience to God are going to see our God-given dreams and visions fulfilled or “coming into fulfillment” during this new year. We believe that this New Year of 2017 will begin with believers delighting themselves in the Lord as never before.  Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4)

Our Story

Immediately after Joyce and I received the baptism in the Holy Spirit in 1972, we found ourselves spending much of our time in delighting ourselves in the Lord in our high praise and intimate worship. We found ourselves becoming more and more focused on the Heart of our Father-God for reaching the nations. He began to give us a vision to reach the nations with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We had both felt called to the mission field in our youth and attended Bible School in prepa­ration for what God had ahead for us in our lives and ministry. But we had lacked the power of the Holy Spirit to be His witnesses. Now, years later when we received more of His power in our lives, suddenly our hearts desire for world evange­lism began to increase. Our first mission trip was in 1976 when we went to Hong Kong and The Philippines with Dr. Sumrall and Charles and Frances Hunter. My first trip to India was in 1981 with Pastor John Osteen and our passion for reaching the nations for Jesus Christ kept increasing. God kept positioning us for the fulfillment of the desires of our heart. God gave us a vision for advancing the Kingdom of God in the nations of the world. God took us to Psalm 2:8: Ask of Me, and I will give You The nations for Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth for Your possession. In 1983, we stepped out of our position with Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, and began our international ministry. Immediately, those visions that God had placed in our heart began to come to pass because we had “delighted ourselves in the Lord.” Yes, those visions that God had placed in our hearts have come to pass. We can truly say: “Every vision that God has placed in our hearts is being fulfilled.” We can say with Habakkuk: Look among the nations and watch – be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told you” (Habakkuk 1:5)

Your Story

Now, God has spoken to our hearts that this New Year will be the year of the fulfillment of God-given visions. Joyce and I love to tell what God has done in our lives. He has taken two shy, poor, unknown people and used them to reach so many, even rulers around the world. We have experienced what God wants to do in the lives of every believer. We know He wants to do this in your life! This is the year of fulfillment! We ask you to join us in delighting yourself in the Lord. Let Him give, renew, and confirm His visions for you! If you haven’t already done so, write your vision ~ your goal down. Simplify it into a couple of sentences and begin to declare it coming to pass in this coming New Year. Then the LORD answered me and said: “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it (Habakkuk 2:2) Then, send this God-given vision to us so that we can join with you in our prayers and decrees for the fulfillment of your vision in this coming year. A friend of ours, who has now gone to be with the Lord, often asked the Lord saying: “Lord, give me a vision so big that You might have to move your little finger to accomplish it!” Again, remember God has spoken to our hearts: “Say to them, the days are near when every vision will be fulfilled.” (Ezekiel 12:23 NIV) As you may already know, our vision and passion for Gill Ministries has been to develop, translate and provide tools for churches and groups in the nations of the world to have the all- important resources to be able to equip every believer to do the works of the ministry (the works of Jesus) and to bring them into the full measure of the stature of Christ Himself. Our passion and vision is that every believer will be equipped to reach their own villages, towns, cities and nations with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Today, the need keeps increasing for these practical, anointed teaching resources to be translated into more and more languages at considerable cost. We then make these translations available free of charge through our website and media outreaches of the teacher/student manuals in their languages. God has given others the vision and ministry of taking and introducing these powerful and practical teaching resources to spiritual leaders and pastors in nations around the world to help them start Kingdom Training Centers in their churches and ministries. We are also actively involved in the multiplication of these resources through media (the internet, website, literature, audio, video teaching and international television). Our ministry keeps us going to the nations of the world. It has now taken us to 93 nations and some of those over fifty times. We are now making plans to travel to many nations in this coming year. We continue to need your help through faithful prayer and generous monthly giving. Please pray about what God would have you do as a special gift at this time and by your faithful monthly support. Together, we are forcibly advancing the Kingdom of God in the nations of the world. And as you do, don’t forget to send us your vision so we can join with you in prayer for your vision to be fulfilled during this coming New Year. Your missionaries to the world,. A.L. ‘n Joyce
