Glory Manifestations in Ireland and Mexico
Last month, we reported the awesome breakthroughs in the Spirit during our three weeks of ministry in the nations of Indonesia and Malaysia. Exciting reports continue to come in from those nations. From Asia, our faithful spiritual son, Eric Peterson, continued on with me for another exciting week of meetings in Ireland. Joyce has been busy at home continuing to expand the outreaches of our website and media channel. You will read more about that in the section The Internet below.
Glory in Ireland
The glory of God manifested in such power!
Later that month, Joyce and I helped launch their new church in Ireland with a powerful, week-long Healing Explosion meeting. Last year, I had the privilege of doing another conference in their powerful, growing church.This June, both Eric and I had the privilege of ministering at the God Encounter they sponsored at a Christian retreat center in Newcastle, Ireland.Many miracles took place and many were filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.
The awesome glory of God's presence kept intensifying in meeting after meeting.
The excitement was overwhelming as God moved in an awesome way in both the God Encounter meetings in Newcastle and as Eric and I continued to minister in Newry, Ireland, for several days afterwards. We did team teaching on The Glory of God and Intimacy with God.
Many received healings in their bodies as they walked into the intensified glory.
The manifestations of God's awesome glory in both Newcastle and Newry were so powerful. Many were slain under the power of God. Many received healings in their bodies as they walked into the intensified glory that was felt so overwhelmingly in the front of the auditoriums.Many of these believers had been going through the teaching in our manuals and video teachings in the Miracle Module and they came expecting to receive.
Another man, who pastors a church in England, had been introduced to our ministry through our teaching as part of ISOM. He came with eleven from his church. Each one was deeply touched and we are now in the process of setting up meetings in Coventry, England, in late October.Glory in Mexico
I have just returned from meetings both in Mexico City and Monterrey, Mexico. In Mexico City, I had the privilege of speaking at the graduation of ninety ISOM students who had just completed their five trimesters and were receiving their diplomas.
80% or more of the people received manifestations of healing!
On Sunday, in Mexico City, I ministered in two large churches. In both churches, 80% or more of the audience raised their hands to indicate they had received a manifestation of healing in their bodies as I was speaking the Word of God revealing Jesus as Their Healer.
It was so exciting seeing the power of God's Word at work in the lives of so many.
This past week in Monterrey, I ministered at the annual pastor's conference of a group of about 300 churches with over 70,000 members under the leadership of our dear friend, Pastor Tim Ost.
My interpreter was "gone," but I didn't need one.
It was about forty-five minutes before another word was spoken. All of us were overwhelmed by the awesome presence of God. All across the audience, people were either slain under the power of God, kneeling, or on their faces before the Lord.
We give God all of the glory as He continues to move in such awesome power in meeting after meeting.
God has been speaking to us about Discipleship. But what is discipleship? How are we to accomplish God's Mandate to us?
Discipleship is teaching. In Matthew Jesus said, Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you(28:19,20a).
Jesus gave three steps. Receiving the call to be a disciple is conversion. Being baptized is publicly making a commitment of your faith, and teaching is discipling.
Discipleship is equipping. The apostle Paul wrote, 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(Eph 4:11,12).
Discipleship is mentoring, and that is a more popular word in our day. The definition of mentoring is: To serve as a trusted counselor or teacher to (another person).
Our mandate from the Holy Spirit is to disciple 300 million believers for the advancement of the Kingdom of God in the nations of the world.Our ministry is primarily to develop and provide the tools so that every local church can be an equipping training center. These tools are being greatly multiplied through the internet and television. Every believer must be trained. Those called into the fivefold ministry must receive further training. These tools must be made available in many languages. Re¬source centers must be established in key nations.
Our next major expansion is the upgrading of our video production studio to the latest technology for high quality video production. Around the world, thousands are being born into the Kingdom of God, and these newborn believers must be equipped to do the works of the ministry and be brought into the full measure of the stature of Christ Himself.We are entering the great end-time harvest and there is a great urgency in our spirits to equip new believers, the harvesters, to fulfill the Great Commission.
The translation work on these manuals continues each month as God continues to provide the funds through faithful partners.Thousands of Bible Schools have been started in many nations using these manuals. In addition, over 300,000 are being trained in around 15,000 training sites through ISOM including our teaching on Super¬natural Living. This, together with our new Miracle Living Module of the ISOM, provides a total of 42 hours of video teachings. Thousands of dollars are now needed to provide these teachings in many more languages.
We are expecting an awesome move of the Spirit of God in these meetings.Joyce and I will be doing Healing Explosion meetings in Toronto, Canada, August 26 through September 2nd. Information is on our website: www.gillministries.com.
Steve Swanson will be leading us in high praise and on into the presence of God as he has done at our annual Mountain Top Encounters for a good number of years. More information is on our website.
Matt Sorger, who has an awesome ministry in the glory of God, will also be joining us in ministering in these meetings.
Your partnership through prayers and sacrificial giving is needed. Over $31,000 is needed immediately for the purchase of the new equipment for our video production studio. We are also asking you to join your faith with ours for meeting the ongoing production, post production, labor and other necessary costs. As we partner together, we are going to see a mighty army equipped and trained for this great end-time harvest. Please pray about what God would have you do both now and in the coming months. Together we are winning!
