Okay, so we all know, that we are supposed to Go into all the world and share the gospel, the good news of Jesus love, but how? We work, go to school, raise children, and life is busy!

Here’s how:

I have written over a thousand articles on Christian faith and living. Here are 7 on evangelism.

Read them, most are very short.

Then, when you see something on Social Media or email, that is clearly contrary to the Word of God, or encounter a person that is searching, hurting, lonely, suicidal, going through hell, simply cut and paste one of these links and send it to them.

Some will get mad at you, and blast you. Whatever.

Do it anyway!

We are not God, simply called to try and represent Him, and bring His message to this hurting world.

Like Nike says, Just Do it!

A Page Torn From my Bible

A page torn out of my Bible…
YOUR Great Commission - Embracing YOUR Destiny!
For many years I carried a Rhema Study Bible, given to me when I learned I had been accepted at Bible school. One of my favorite passages is:

Mark 16: 15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
19 ¶ So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
20 And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
greater works
This was given to me by a nurse from Ottawa, Ontario named Deana Jones. She gave it to me after I had completed a 40 day fast, before being accepted into Rhema Bible Training center, and that particular Bible literally fell apart after 15 years of study and preaching. I have preached these verses so many times, all over the world, with signs following, that what was originally highlighted and marked up, is became completely worn out of my Bible!

This is the great commission, and is the battle cry of the church!

Let me give you a couple of testimonies from these verses:
tongues1
Once, while arguing with a brethren that was deeply rooted in his unbelief in his thought that the gifts of the Holy Spirit were passed away, and that speaking in tongues were of the devil I confronted him with this verse:

These signs are only for those that believe!

Whatever is not of faith is sin!

You can believe, and speak in tongues, or refuse to believe, and not speak in tongues, but speaking in tongues is only for believers, not doubters!

He became angry and asked me to leave his house. Yet, he could not sleep for several nights, and felt compelled to attend a Pentecostal church moving in revival. At one point the pastor stopped the service and had the 400-500 in attendance to all simultaneously pray in tongues. This man was overwhelmed, and overcome by the power of God, and suddenly found himself speaking in other tongues.
demons-cast-out

Another time, while working with children, two boys were fighting. I separated them, and one little boy fell on the ground growling and frothing at the mouth. I discerned an evil spirit present, and commanded it to leave. The boy shrieked, vomited, and became very, very quiet. Then he whispered: ‘Is it gone?’ I told him that it was gone, and would not come back, and he began to weep, deep broken sobs, telling me how this evil spirit had come to him in the night, and would torment him and demand he do vile things or it would kill him.

Several days later, his grandpa came to see me to ask me what had happened to his grandson, so I told him. He said that the boy was totally different, and could not thank me enough for praying for him.

preach-gospel
Another historic moment in my life was in 2003 at the Hershey convention center, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, the night that brother Kenneth E. Hagin was supposed to preach. There was a massive power failure, knocking power out to millions of homes, and the crusade was cancelled. While the crowd stood on the steps waiting to see if we could get in, and told there would be no meeting that night, someone said, ‘Hey, there’s pastor Chris, and he is a Rhema grad, have him preach to us!’ So amidst cheers, I ascended the steps, and began to preach, using these verses: I preached salvation, healing, prosperity, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit for over an hour, and people got saved, healed, filled with the Holy Spirit, and they even took up an offering for me! How were we to know that this would be brother Hagins last big crusade, and that he would return to Tulsa, Oklahoma, and die to go home to be with the Lord.

The Bible I use now, was given to us as a wedding gift from he and miss Oretha:

kenneth-hagin-bible
Yet, I’m still trying to make him proud, preaching this Word of Faith, with signs following, every where the Lord should open doors for me.

Let’s pray:
“Father, open doors and hearts for me to preach your Word, through every available media outlet: Internet, television, radio, the printed page, however, and wherever you might direct. May I be faithful to go and preach, continually, as you are always faithful to work with me, performing your word faithfully, with signs following, in your name I pray Lord Jesus! Amen”

Will you turn aside?

Receive your miracle, now!
but-at-your-word
Luke 5:2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.
3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down and taught the people out of the ship.
4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.
nets
7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came and filled both the ships so that they began to sink.
8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.

Let’s look at another encounter where God reveals Himself:
turn-aside-red
Ex 3:2 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
Ex 3:3 And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.

Seems God loves to show up in the workplace. Here we see Peter working in his own strength, trying to make a living as a fisherman. He learned what all of us must learn, our own strength is no match for the power of God, and that power is released only when we obey Him.

Gave a prophecy some time ago, entitled: Jesus lit a match. https://chrisaomministries.com/2016/12/13/jesus-lit-a-match/

Seems I am walking out the fruit of that very word, where Jesus has lit a burning bush in my life, and like Moses, I said to myself: ‘I will now turn aside, and see this great sight…’ In my life, the burning bush occurred at the deathbed of a three-year-old princess, who died and went home to be with the Lord. God spoke to me after that 4 days and 4-night prayer vigil, about my heavenly calling, purpose, and responsibility.

As a direct result of that one mind-blowing encounter, I have followed after Him, with all my heart mind soul and strength, with everything in me.

Miracles, signs, and wonders have become my daily portion, as God confirms my calling, in my day to day, life.
obedience-acts-5-32
He will do it in yours too if you fully obey Him.

Ac 5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

When the Holy Spirit bears witness to a human life, miracles result.

How well I realize, that this power beginning to manifest again in my life, is not about me, but rather you. There is always a people on the other side of our obedience, and you dear friend, are one of those people.

Let’s Pray:
‘Father, I thank you and praise you for your love, goodness, and power. Today, I release your power, anointing, and strength into this people, believing you to honor this Word with signs, wonders, miracles, healings, prosperity, breakthroughs, direction, conviction of sin, and mercy, forgiveness, and cleansing. Holy Spirit, I thank you for the privilege of being used of you today, in your name I pray, Lord Jesus, Amen’

Now, Inbox me with your particular testimony of His grace to you today!

Jesus Lit A Match

For a year or so, Victory Christian Center held all night prayer meetings two times per month.
match

I attended these, seeking God Himself with everything in me.

During that time, I had a recurring dream that I didn’t understand.

It was a hot Oklahoma summer, before the time intercessors here had prayed in the rain and broken the drought.

In my dream, on a hot day, I saw a bush, totally withered, with the leaves still on it, all dry.

Jesus walked up to this bush, and in His hand He held a box of wooden matches.

He smiled really big, and lit a match and extended it towards the dead bush.

Then I would wake up smiling, not knowing what this was all about.

I had this dream repeatedly over a period of months, until finally, one night when I awoke I said: “Jesus? Why do I keep having this dream? Are You trying to speak to me?”
turn-aside

I thought about these verses from the life of Moses:

Ex 3:2 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
Ex 3:3 And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.

Immediately Holy Spirit spoke to me:

“America is in trouble. I have been preparing many of my servants in the business world for many decades, that I will now anoint and set apart as deliverers to this nation. I am lighting bushes on fire in their lives, to see if they will turn aside and seek me…”

Most of you know the rest of the story in my life, how I became one of those leaders – how I left the two companies we owned, and went out into the desert to learn the ways of native americans, and how God would desire to use them to unlock a great move of Holy Spirit across this land….

How Bad is It?

how-bad
Reading the words of the prophet Jeremiah today, and thought about some really bad days I have experienced…

Jer 20:14 ¶ Cursed be the day wherein I was born: let not the day wherein my mother bare me be blessed.
15 Cursed be the man who brought tidings to my father, saying, A man child is born unto thee; making him very glad.

Here we see the heartache of a man of God, at the hands of wicked man, that had obeyed God!

This is no politically correct preaching, but is the Word of God!

How about Job in his affliction:

[ Job Laments His Birth ] After this Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth

Joseph in prison?

The apostle Paul after being beaten, put in jail and in chains?

I think he wrote these words, back down through the corridor of time, so that we might understand his pain and desperation, we are not alone, and Jesus is worthy of it all…

2 Corinthians 1:8

For we do not want you to be unaware, brothers, of the affliction we experienced in Asia. For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself.

deliver

Truly, they all found victory in God, eventually, but they each, at some point despaired even of life itself.

I am not preaching to everyone today, I am here for someone: Is it you?

I know where you are at. Not specifically, but I think of the years praying for my family through cancer, and then having them die. Shattered, my faith in tatters, pain beyond belief, numb.

Yet, God was with me, and had my resurrection in mind.

He has yours too.

This is not the end of the story, simply a dramatic chapter of your life. Here’s a verse not commonly preached:

Ga 6:17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.

There is a place in Jesus, where you realize that no matter what any person might say or do, you are going to live for Jesus. This was the verse the Lord gave me coming off the mission field, after five brutal years. One by one, the people and ministries I had believed in, let me down, and I was left with Jesus, who will never leave nor forsake me.

He sent a servant into my pain, pastor Billy Joe, and somehow he knew, he understood, and he loved me and believed in me, when I did not believe in myself.

I had obeyed God, and lost everything, persecuted, betrayed, abandoned, and broke. Yet, God had my resurrection in mind!
Billy Joe
I know I am speaking to someone here today. He will never leave nor forsake you either. What He said, shall surely come to pass, He cannot lie. People may come and go, but He will remain, and He will bring faithful people to your side, to walk with you throughout this life, and I’m sure, in eternity.

Some old saints used to call these seasons, ‘the long dark night of the soul…’ It will end. There is light at the end of the tunnel, that is not an oncoming train. There is joy and intimacy with Jesus in this place. Talk to Him about it: He knows, He understands, and He loves you.

I am praying for you today, you are not alone. I love you, and I remain, faithful to the call…

FIRST Words…Life or Death!

First Word!
first-words
We had a great time sharing with Mike Schmidt and Dove Schmidt yesterday at Crossroads ranch, and we shared testimonies of Gods provision, protection, and miraculous interventions in our lives.
death and life
Karen made the statement that is literally life or death for a believer –

“When an accident occurs or something horrible comes, it is the FIRST Words out of your mouth that determine the outcome of the trial’

When a car wreck comes, we yell ‘Jesus’ and discover we come out of an impossible situation, unscathed.

A thug pulls a gun on you to rob you, and you proclaim ‘the blood of Jesus’ and slap him, and he ends up on the ground by the power of God.

A tree limb falls on you from 70′ up, and dislocates your skull, but before losing consciousness, you SAY: ‘Jesus, I’m healed’, and within a couple days, your head is fine.

You get bit by a recluse spider in the forehead, and through the searing burning pain, you cry: ‘Jesus, I’m healed‘, and you lose no tissue, and do not die, because the FIRST Words out of your mouth are words of faith and authority, calling on our covenant, forcing God to honor His Word and to deliver you.

We have lived these things for several decades now, and these are real life stories, and if we had time and space, we could share hundreds more.

We must keep out hearts full of the Word of God, so that out of the overflow, come our words-not merely empty, memorized stale bread from yesteryear’s, but words gestated, grown, day by day, year by year, alive with intimacy with Holy Spirit from the fire of our own personal alter established each morning before His throne – that produce signs, wonders, miracles, and acts of His power in our life that make headlines in heaven- and we create a testimony to the glory of Jesus that others can follow.

prophecy testimony

FIRST Words – each day and each trial, become precedent setting events in our lives – that establish our course – a victorious journey with Jesus.

This morning, we must be refilled with precious Holy Spirit, stirring up the gift of God within us, and we must eat fresh of the Word of God, the bread of life, feeding our hearts with what only heaven can bring. Words of life, birthed in prayer, that establish our world, and prepare us for anything this life might attempt to throw at us.

NOW faith is, and His name is I AM – our ever present help in time of trouble.

Today, is the day of salvation, Today is the day to believe, Today is the day to live for Jesus, NOW!
show up1

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, I come to you again, looking to heaven again, Today. Fill me afresh with Your Word and precious Holy Spirit as I stir myself up in the gift you have given me. May there be fresh passion, life, fire, enthusiasm, and Your love shed abroad in our hearts that ignites our faith and causes it it to work today. I ask this Dad, knowing I am heard and answered, for I ask in Your mighty and matchless name Lord Jesus. Amen.’

When God becomes your problem, pain becomes your instructor…

When God becomes your problem, pain becomes your instructor:
discipline-pain
Hosea 5:14 For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I, even I, will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall rescue him.
15 I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.

God is love! Surely He loves us, with an everlasting love.

Yet, these chapters 4 and 5 of Hosea speak of God judging His people, and actually bringing affliction to His people, to await their return to Him.
corrects
Heb 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

Heb 12:7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

Re 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Come to Him today, and purpose to serve Him, today, and every day for the rest of your life, and you will experience only His love, no matter what happens around you, He will be for you, and will deliver you.

If you are wrong, and doing your own thing instead of His, admit it and change direction – decide to receive Jesus and fully follow your heavenly Father.

He will forgive you, and show you His love and how to get out of the mess you’ve made, no matter how complex: Remember – He created the universe – He can handle your complexity.

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, I hurt. Please forgive me where I have sinned against You. Deliver me from the mess I have made. Show me Your direction for my life, and give me courage to fully obey You in it, whatever it costs in light of consequences in this life. Jesus, have mercy upon me, and come again into my life, and bring your peace. Amen’
