“Open my eyes Lord to see the Beautiful Connection Between God, Us and the Cross”

The Lord helped me to see things that I would have never seen before. Like angels and demons and other glorious things. He gives us sympathy pains and visions like pictures in your head. He also speaks to me in my sleep and when I’m awake.

He is an awesome God who has all the power, glory and authority to do what ever He pleases and we mustn’t try to mess with God. He is all powerful and our ruler if you want to have Him as your personal savior….. Just ask Him into your Heart to rule and reign till the day Jesus comes back and worship Him forever. Just think…getting to be next to the One who made everything, for instance you. That will be so much fun. I can’t wait and I hope you can’t either. It will be an awesome day when Jesus returns in the clouds………

He will be there with the Book of Life and if you prayed for forgiveness of your sins and accepted Him to rule and reign in your heart forever, then you will be in that book too. You will get to be in peace and joy with Him for eternity. Exciting isn’t it?

To think, He is watching you right now, smiling down at you being pleased. Sadly, He also sees us and watches us when we do bad things, or don’t do the right thing- THAT thing you know you SHOULD have done, we grieve Him at the sight of it. Would you like to be responsible for grieving (making Him sad) the living God, the creator of heaven and earth, the One who gave you life? Not I….

He LOVES you sooooo much and wants to be friends with you and enjoys it when you chat with Him. He is so happy when you do what He asks. That includes praying ( talking with God) for those who need prayer ( like say, your friend was sick, then you would ask God to heal her/him) and other things like reading your bible. (His instructions on how to live a happy, holy life) Back in bible days like in the Old Testament ordinary people had a hard time hangin’ with God. That’s why He sent his son to die on the cross for us to save us from our sins; to build a bridge, a connection with God that we could never have had before. God is perfect and holy. Jesus’ blood covered us we so we can talk directly with God; which is SO much fun.

Isn’t it amazing how God worked everything out in his wonderful huge plan for mankind…for all of us to love Him…and for Him to love us back. That is the beautiful connection & plan that God made.

DEAD BABY RAISED BY TEENS AFTER 27 HOURS

 

Hi this is another reprint from our old blog=)

We received this awesome news thru an awesome prophetic friend who received it from Kathie Walter’s email group & figured we had to share it! This is so encouraging…….God uses young people to raise the dead!

“This is one of the most incredible miracles I have ever read, and it was done through two teenagers! God is definitely on the move…more Lord!

 

Dear friends,

This is a testimony from a young lady in our church ( 14) , who was part of team used by God to raise a stillborn baby from the dead in Guatemala.  We know this young lady personally.  Her character and integrity are without reproach.  You are about to read a bonafide, contemporary Lazarus resurrection story.  This is as close to the flame of a literal resurrection from the dead as we have ever been!

BIG blessings,

Dave & Anita 

My name is Abby. I am 14 years old. I live in western North Carolina. During the summer of 2008, I went on a ministry trip to Guatemala. During part of the trip, we divided up into small ministry teams (5 to 7 people) and visited different villages in the San Pedro La Laguna area. We traveled from village to village telling the Indian people about Jesus. On one particular day, we were visiting in the home of young woman. She lived in a small village of about 14 or 15 houses. We were trying to lead the young lady to Christ, but it was not going very well. After awhile, we decided to move on. Before leaving, we asked the woman if we could pray with her about anything in her life. She told us that just the day before, she had given birth to a stillborn baby and that we could pray with her about that. In Guatemalan culture there is great shame and condemnation on mothers who give birth to deformed or stillborn children.

We prayed a simple prayer that everything would go well with the funeral and burial of the baby and that the mother would be spared the shame and condemnation associated with having given birth to a stillborn child.

As we were praying this simple prayer, my friend and fellow ministry team member, Julia (age 17), told me that we needed to pray over the baby’s body.

I thought she was crazy to suggest this and that it was not a good idea. Julia was persistent. She said again that we really needed to pray over the baby’s body. She told me to ask the mother if she still had the baby’s body. When I asked, the mother told us the baby’s body was wrapped up in a burial cloth in the backroom. I asked her if we could pray over the body. The mother hesitantly said, yes. We went into the backroom and saw the baby’s body wrapped up in a bundle on the bed. Julia poked her head out of the back room and asked if she could unwrap the baby’s head. The mother said, yes, if we wrapped it back correctly when we were done. Julia picked up the body and unwrapped the head. The baby’s head was tiny and pale. The baby was stillborn and had been dead outside the womb for 27 hours. Her skin had turned shades of purple. Our entire ministry team, five of us, began crying and praying over this baby. We prayed for thirty to forty minutes.

At the end of that time, Julia screamed out to God, telling him that she believed with all of her heart that this baby could be raised from the dead. After Julia screamed out, everyone was silent. We were quietly interceding and praying. Within a few minutes, the baby started moving. Then the baby coughed and began crying. The mother came rushing into the room. She was screaming, what is going? No one could answer her. We were just staring at the baby, who had come back to life. The mother asked us again, what is going on? She began crying as she saw that her baby was alive. She ran out of the house and banged on every door in the village, telling all of the people that God is real because her baby was alive.  Within about thirty minutes, the baby’s skin tone and movements had become completely normal.

Five days later, we returned to the village to check in on the mother and the baby. The village had prepared a big dinner in honor of our team. We enjoyed a wonderful time of fellowship together. The baby, whom they named Julia, was perfectly healthy and had gained weight. Even after five days, the mother was still shaking from the impact of God on her life through the resurrection of her child. Two days after our follow-up visit, the mother brought baby Julia to church. The mother was still shaking from the power of God on her life following this astounding miracle.

A PowerClub Boy Raises Baby from the Dead!

The Unbelievable!

A PowerClub Kid Raises a Baby from the Dead!

 

esequiel_5

OK. If this is a stretch for you to believe, I understand.

I had to blink hard a couple times myself when this report first came in from our KIMI Latin America director Ana Lilia Zertuche. It’s easy for me to believe kids can heal the sick. I’ve seen it done over and over again. It’s easy for me to accept them as profound prayer warriors. It happens in almost every one of our conferences. It’s easy for me to acknowledge kids giving prophetic words to people very accurately. I’ve heard them do it repeatedly reading people’s private mail and changing people’s lives. Though I’ve never seen it personally, I have heard a number of stories where children have cast out devils. I believe it.

And I also believe kids can raise the dead.

But in all my years of preaching this message I have only heard of one story where this actually happened. And it’s a 20 year old story told to me by a man in Africa. So when this story came in about one of our very own PowerClub kids, I wanted to get as many of the facts as possible and get it documented the best we could. Let me tell you the whole story as told to me by Ana Lilia.

__

About a year ago a man, Hugo, in Mexico City saw the movie Jesus Camp. (Isn’t that interesting????) He wrote to us here in the states and wanted to get involved with our ministry because of what he saw in the movie. So naturally we put him in contact with Ana Lilia since she lives in Mexico. Very shortly after this Hugo asked Ana Lilia to train him so he could begin a PowerClub in Mexico City.

__

He was so excited to begin. After training and receiving our KIMI curriculums in Spanish, he started with three kids, then eight, then twenty, and before long he had 100 children attending his PowerClub. He was desperate for a bigger meeting place.

__

A father of one of the children attending was so impressed with the changes that he saw in his own son, that he started attending the PowerClub himself. He was a disenfranchised Christian who had given up on church. But this ministry so impressed him, that he immediately began paying the rent on a facility for Hugo to hold his hundred kids. Hugo has now been teaching these children with our KIMI curriculums for a year.

__

Now fast forward to just within the last six weeks where our miracle story begins. Hugo’s twelve year old son Estaban had a sudden appendicitis attack and was rushed to the hospital for surgery. While he was there, the report went out through the patients in the hospital that a little baby had died. It was a preemie, and the doctors had worked on him for at least two hours before giving up, pulling all life support from him, and announcing to the parents that little Ezekial was officially dead.

__

When Estaban heard the story he immediately asked his mother if he could go and pray for the baby. He insisted on praying that the baby would be resurrected.

__

His mother tried to redirect him to pray for the parents who surely needed their prayers, but Estaban was insistent about praying that the baby would be resurrected. Finally his mother led Estaban, still hooked up to his own IV’s, down the hallway to the baby’s room, but of course the nurses would not allow them to go in. So undaunted, Estaban began to pray in the hallway, outside the door of the baby. Everyone around him heard his prayer for the baby to come back to life. Finally he was done and confidently declared to his mother, “The baby WILL be resurrected.” With that they went back to their own room.

__

It wasn’t but about a half an hour later, one of the nurses came running into their room with the news—the baby was indeed alive again!!!!Everyone, including the doctors declared it an absolute miracle!

Hugo and his family visited little Ezekial and his parents several times, and just in the last week or two they finally were allowed to take little Ezekial home. The parents are Catholic. Hugo, Claudia, and Estaban were invited to their home just recently and were able to take pictures of Estaban and the baby and his mother. The parents have since received Jesus as their savior and are still declaring along with the doctors that this is indeed a miracle! The doctors have no explanation for this!

__

This has even increased my faith of the potential of children as warriors for Christ. Of course I’m excited that this came out of one of our PowerClubs. Of course I’m excited that this child was first impacted by the movie Jesus Camp and was later trained using our materials. But as of right now, we don’t have a curriculum with any lessons teaching kids to raise the dead! This was a total God-thing! Somehow this child was impacted to be able to believe God for anything!

__

Every one of us as parents, pastors, and children’s ministers should be deeply inspired and challenged to believe for even bigger and more amazing things through the children we are privileged to teach after hearing this story. Think of the responsibility we have to inspire and mentor and encourage our kids to believe for the unbelievable.

__

Please continue to pray for little Ezekial since he is a preemie that he will grow up perfect with no physical limitations of any kind and pray for his parents that they will find a good church where they will be discipled and be able to grow strong in the Lord. We give God all the glory for it all! And continue to pray that the children of the world will step into their rightful places in God’s army.
