Roger Rinker, a pastor and missionary, preaches on 10 scriptures from the book of Acts, and then ministers to the congregation an evaluation of our actual living in the book of Acts. Listen to hear the 10 things that should be evident in our lives daily.
Text: Neh. 5:9. Pastor Dale preaches about how the believer and leaders must be accountable and responsible to judge themselves, be transparent, and to deal with the flesh through repentance. The service includes baby dedication, as well as ordination of Jim and Michele Johnson and Miriam and Art Remington.
Dominic questions and challenges us to make the commitment to surrender all to Christ. Do I live like I don’t belong to myself? Am I trying to please Christ or man? If you want to experience miracle working power, you must first die.
Faith is a way of looking at life, not something applied to a problem. The tests you go through should increase you. It’s your faith that is being tested. Listen to Pastor Dale’s definition of “patience”, which should be your response to a test.
Pastor Bob continues preaching on grace and how we can receive God’s grace. Listen how to change your thinking, so you can receive.
Listen as Pastor Bob defines God’s grace and what that means for us. Rom. 5:17; II Tim. 2:1-7; Eph. 2:1
Pastor Bob preaches on bringing simplicity to obedience. There are “ifs” attached to prophetic words. Listen to hear some of the conditions for the Father’s honor, His forgiveness, having His ear, for having, finding, and enjoying life, for moving mountains, for living, and for a successful prayer life.
Ed Black ministers on how the power of God in signs, wonders, and miracles was and is to get peoples? attention and to minister God to them. He uses personal testimonies and both Old and New Testament examples to show how God’s power ministered as a witness of His greatness.
Moving in the Spirit means walking in the Spirit- doing what you’ve heard God tell you to do. It’s all about hearing and moving. Make sure you don’t misinterpret God (Samuel). Gal. 5:24-26; John 5:1-9; Amos 3:7; II Chron. 20:20.
Using Jonah as the example, Lee Grady gave a strong warning to the church to wake up and stop running from the presence of God. The Church needs to get in alignment with God’s plan. Five of the nine gifts involve the mouth. WE MUST SPEAK! When we’re quiet and not fulfilling our assignment, we are putting people in peril. Lee also prophesied over CWI and different people in the congregation.
Pastor Dale continues this series using last week’s scriptures (see 02.01.09) and adding more story/examples to demonstrate the absolute need for us to walk in the Spirit. We live in the Spirit and that enables us to crucify the flesh, not the other way around.
The closer you come to Jesus, the more the Body is in unity. Pastor Dale preaches on unity and its power, contrasting the Tower of Babel and speaking in tongues by the Holy Spirit. He explains that the anointing on the leader is for the Body’s sake. Leaders are to serve with responsibility and not seek power.
Listen as Pastor Dale shares many of his experiences of walking in the Spirit and preaches about visions and what stops and aids the personal and corporate move of God. Scriptures: Gal. 5:16, 24-26; Amos 3:7; John 5:1-15, 17-20; I Sam. 3:1-10; Is. 6:6-8; John 7:17.
Pastor Bob delivers a powerful word from the Holy Spirit concerning “understanding”. He preaches on integrity and faithfulness. We are called, but few are chosen. Listen as he describes who the few are in this time of harvest. (Ps. 101:1-8; Matt. 7:13, 14; Matt. 9:35-38…)
Did you know that your soul fights your heart (spirit)? How do we get rid of the limits of our souls? How do we use the authority of the spoken Word? Listen as Pastor Bob uses James 1:21-25 and Matt. 8:5-13 and preaches on how to implant the Word in us to save our souls.
Did you know that building your faith is different from releasing your faith? The Word must be mixed with faith (Heb. 4:1, 2), but the confession unto faith does not do the same thing as the confession of faith. Don’t confuse faith with peer pressure and mental assent.
Using information on the pilot and the plane of the US Air Flight 1549 “crash”, Bob Harrison (“Dr. Increase”) explains 10 strategies for success and increase for our lives.
How is God going to give us increase so that we can live in the Promised Land that God wants you to live in? Listen as Bob Harrison give 5 powerful ways God can give you increase and increase you.
Listen as Bob Harrison removes a barrier between you and increase. What is your mindset? Do you know that God wants to increase you? To drive out wrong thinking, you must put in right thinking. Bob challenges us to say Ps. 115:14 aloud 10 times a day for 40 days. What’s in you acts as a magnet to bring more of it to you.
John 13:34 and 15:12 tell us to love one another as Jesus has loved us. Listen as Pastor Bob uses many scriptures to exhort us to love, and when our faith isn’t working, we need to check up on our love walk.
Using the text from Gal. 5:16, 24-26, Pastor Dale continues to preach on walking the Spirit, and then you won’t fulfill the lusts of the flesh. We are dead to sin, but we still have the choice to sin. From I Corinthians 14:27-33 he explains that a church service should have an “interpreter” who conducts the Spirit in the service. Listen as Pastor Dale gives 7 things that can limit an interpreter in a service.
Karen Sallee teaches a lesson on receiving our healing. Using John 3:16 she explains God’s order of operation: love, grace, faith, and freedom. She gives characteristics of faith and grace, and then develops the truth of our inheriting the promises through faith and patience (Heb. 6:12-15).
Pastor Dale continues to preach on Gal. 5:16 – walk in the Spirit, and then you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh. Spiritual dyslexia will get the work of trying not to fulfill the flesh before walking in the Spirit. He clarifies two “ceilings” that we must break through and the need for an “interpreter” (the person at the helm of the flow of the Spirit) in a service.
Pastor Bruce Ladebu preaches on healing, using an outline of scriptures for Healing School. Listen as he lays out God’s will to heal and Jesus? making it possible. He also ministered by laying on of hands and by ministering prophetically.
Gal. 5:16, 24. The love-walk is in the Spirit. Worship is life. Listen as Pastor Dale shares the truth of being filled with the Spirit and the power that is in being filled- continuously.
Going back to Genesis, we know that God’s will is for healing. Jesus is Health. He is Healing. He is Life. Listen to powerful testimonies of the healings Pastor Pat experienced himself, in his family, and in others through Jesus, the Healer. God will always heal if we cooperate.
Gal. 5:16; Ps. 112; Rom. 8:1. We can walk in the Spirit by strengthening our spirit, and walking in the Spirit causes your spirit to get stronger. The Holy Spirit’s power to convict is stronger than the devil’s power to tempt. Don’t let the devil steal your time with Jesus. People will be set free by you, if they see Jesus, not a Pharisee.
Prov. 4:20-22; John 8:16-17; Is. 53:4; Is. 55:8-11. Pastor Bob preaches on healing. People must connect with the truth by faith in order to receive salvation and healing. When we speak the Word, it’s Jesus speaking it. Speaking the Word is sowing it. We need to sow it into our bodies, digest it, and receive from the Lord.
Pastor Bob gives many scriptures explaining “glory”. We are to glorify God in and with our bodies. Miracles are a manifestation of the glory of God. We are created for glory and representatives of heaven. God loves people!
How is faith to receive healing like a teenager going to the refrigerator in his home? Listen as Karen Sallee gives practical examples of how we can receive healing as a child, because we are the children of God. We can know that God loves us, that we can be bold, because Jesus made us worthy and righteous and has given us authority. Fear contaminates our faith, but the Holy Spirit helps us stand against fear.
Pastor Dale preaches on what Jesus? resurrection gives us, starting with John 14:12-13. Because of the resurrection, Jesus always makes intercession for us, allows us to use His name (authority and power), and provides for the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, to be in us. [Statements- Jesus didn’t go to heaven dead; He went there alive! He didn’t pray our sins away. He died for them.] We pray first, and then we speak a declaration of authority. Learn when to pray and when to speak to whatever needs to go or change. John 11 – Lazarus raised from the dead. Experiences: 17 yr. old deaf-mute healed; blind person in Armenia; Dale’s seeing Jesus going through the aisles healing people; woman in Meadeville opening door and demanding sickness and depression to get out.
Dr. David Kandole from Uganda and more recently, Harrisburg, preaches that God wants you healed, healthy, happy, and helping others. Listen as he takes you on a faith walk using: Prov. 4:20-24; Luke 5:17; Ps. 103:1-3; Ps. 107:20; Acts 10:38; O John 3:8; John 1o:10; Luke 4:38; III John 2; Is. 53:4 and 5; Matt. 8:17.
The glory of the Lord was evidenced before the preaching of the Word through Holy Spirit-given words, scripture, spontaneous song, and tongues and interpretation. Then Pastor Bob continued his sermon from April 6th about our being created for God’s glory. We are associated with Jesus, so we can experience His glory. We are granted, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit (Eph. 1:18; 3:14-19). We are being transformed in His glory. Listen as Pastor Bob preaches about the manifest glory of the Lord.
Aaron Ray Zimmerman, a CWI farmer, shares how he experienced increase simply by checking the soil and changing the way he treated it. The result brought increase in his herd of cows and his crop production. Listen to hear how good soil in the natural is important, just as Jesus taught about the good soil of our hearts. (Luke 8)
Pradeep Perera from Sri Lanka uses Mark 5:24-34 as his text. Salvation, healing, and your future are personal to you. No one can predict you. You must be determined, just as the woman with the issue of blood made a choice, was determined to make a connection with Jesus, and was made well by her faith. She pulled the power of God into her situation. We need to receive our breakthrough, which is already done.
Gal. 5:16-18; Rom. 12:1-3; I Cor. 14:14-15. Pastor Dale preaches that you are to be a living sacrifice that doesn’t crawl off the altar. Listen to find out how you beat the battle of the flesh, not by denying it, but by walking in the Spirit and saturating yourself in the Word daily. Sin is a choice, and then it can change your nature. Live passionately for Jesus. Pray in the Spirit, building yourself up. The source of the problem is the flesh; the source of the answer is the Spirit and the Word.
I Kings 18. Listen as Pradeep preaches about the birthing of revival in us and in CWI. We are the answer to the famine in the land. God is preparing us for the season of revival. We must take up the challenge with the confidence of God in us. Pradeep tells how we get that confidence and what discipline does in us. The fire is on us to destroy what is false, to demonstrate who God is, and to cause the people to be revived and lives to be transformed. We must pay attention to what God is saying. Pradeep ministered in the spirit of prophecy.
Do you know the power of the name of Jesus? Do you exercise the authority in the name of Jesus? The name of Jesus Christ is great because: (1) of His inheritance (Heb. 1:3 and 4), (2) of His authority and His (Eph. 1:19-23), and (3) of His great work (Phil.2:5-11).
Luke 6:36. Don’t have a judging and condemning spirit towards people, but some doctrine needs to judged, but you need to know where you have authority. Forgive and forget other people’s wrongs, just as Jesus Christ forgave you. Give and it will be given back to you in the same measure- in speed- grudgingly and slowly or quickly. Give your best, and give everyday. Look for places to give. Listen to God for when and where to give, and it will sharpen your faith.
Gal. 5:16; I John 1:1-3; II Cor. 5:16; I John 3:2. The main focus of this sermon is that fellowship with God brings change by giving you His nature. The flesh side of man changes temporarily and with discomfort, but when the spirit of the person is changed, light comes in. Listen for lots of nuggets that you will need to process and meditate on, such as the enemy of fellowship with God is organized Christian fellowship, because it’s an alternate to an evangelistic lifestyle.
Listen to Pastor Bob preach on how not to waver in your faith. The hearing of the Word that brings faith must be applied with practice. Pastor Bob challenges us to put the Word in us and then practice it by what we say. What should we do when our words don’t match up with the Word of God? Listen and find out.
Listen to the message concerning the offering and proclaiming bills “paid”, praying for financial miracles and God’s grace, mercy, and forgiveness, Kim Miller’s testimony of Glenn Eshleman’s amazing recovery from bypass surgery, and an ordination service of Ed Garner as COO for CWI. Pastor Dale preaches briefly on spiritual warfare, that we are to pull down strongholds in others’ minds, such as how people view women in the church.
Pastor Dale preaches that the Gospel has brought freedom for women. The bondage is caused by people who will hold to their doctrine, but they will not obey it, whether it is coverings for the woman when she prophesies, or the accusers of the woman caught in adultery. Listen as Pastor Dale explains why women should be able to preach and more about women wearing covernings.
Listen as Pastor Dale shows in the Word how healing and manifestations of the Spirit are linked to a person’s giving, praying, and fasting. Seek God, not healing. (Acts 10:1-4, 29-31; Matt. 6:1-18; Matt. 17:14-21)
Dr. Nevers Mumba, soon to be Zambia’s ambassador to Canada, preaches on the three pillars of the Christian faith: the power of the name of Jesus, of Jesus’ blood, and of the cross. Listen as he explains that we must know and understand the language and the culture of the kingdom of God.
John 5:1-9, 14. Pastor Dale expounds on 4 elements of healing: God heals through the gifts of the Spirit. We can be healed by our faith in Jesus Christ- through the anointing. We can be healed if we are under an authority (ex.-a church body) that believes I divine healing. Pastor Dale explains that the anointing is not the gifts of the Spirit.
Col. 1:9-14 Pastor Dale preaches on the power of salvation. We have been translated out of the kingdom of darkness. We are full of God. We’ve been delivered from all of Satan’s power. Acts. 26:18. The power of salvation is the seed of revival.
Pastor Dale preaches on laying on of hands for anointing and healing. Love people and have compassion for them. Laying hands on some people may be the only time they get a physical touch from God. Titus 1:2, 5 Titus was a mobile minister; pastors can be mobile!
Neil Meir of Australia preaches on Acts 10:1-6 (Cornelius and Paul). What opens heaven? How do you get God’s attention? Listen to find out. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. We are to give generously, pray, and act on the Word. Press in. Apply God’s principles.
Neil Miers preaches about the atmosphere and attitude which allow the Holy Spirit to move in, which is an atmosphere of worship, prayer, and praise. Jesus wants to rock His house, because we need to give the world a positive view of the church. Shake off what doesn’t belong. (The Lord gave the words of a song to Pastor Dale and the Holy Spirit through MaryBeth Rutter put it to music.
Josh.1:1–11. How do we go to the “Promised Land”? Listen to, meditate on, believe, and trust in what God is saying. Get rid of the negativity, shyness, inferiority, false humility, boundaries, and the “whys”. Prepare yourselves, put a demand on God, and reach out. We build our own hindrances, and the enemy hands us the bricks.
Pastor Bob preaches on Matt. 4:23-25 and Acts 10:38. We are anointed and given the mandate to demonstrate God?s power by doing the works that Jesus did and greater ones. Pastor Bob defines compassion as a manifestation of God’s love in action. We must go and release God’s compassion.
Listen to this powerful message on being delivered and saved in our experience as well as our doctrine. What are the 5 phases of Jesus Christ’s identification with us? Do we need to figure ourselves out? How can we forget those things (sins) which we?ve done in the past? When are you truly confessing your sin? Are you dead in Christ?
(Your Heavenly Calling) Hebrews, Is. 55:10, Rom. 5:5, and I Cor. 13:4. What’s a key to receiving from God? Jesus Christ is the High Priest of our profession. When we boldly profess (confess, repeat with boldness) His Word, we can enter into what God has for us. The boldness is in what we say. Boldness leads to possession. SPEAK THE WORD BOLDLY!
Do you know what “will go in and out” means in John 10:9 and Hebrews 10:16-19? Listen as Rev. Ron Bruce powerfully and carefully explains how we go into God’s presence with the blood of Jesus in worship, just like the shadow of the Old Covenant Israelite priests who went in with the blood of animals, and how we go out to serve others. We stink, like the dead body of the sacrificed animal, if we don?t go out.
Pastor Dale preaches on Mark 11:22-26. Our faith for receiving is in the believing what we say and keep on saying. What are you saying? That’s what you will get. Don’t rehearse your problem, and don’t use your faith to dig your own grave. Ask for wisdom. (James 1:2-8)
Jesus prepared His disciples for His resurrection by telling them what would happen. Regardless how things look, there will be a resurrection in our lives. The person you used to be before you were saved is dead. God wants to bring back the vision He has given you. Go by the Word and speak it. (Matt. 17:22-23; 20:17-19; 16:21-23; Luke 24:1-7; Col. 2:6-15; Rom. 10:6-9)
Using many scriptures, Pastor Bob preaches on how the Word and the Holy Spirit are on our side for our wholeness, but we have to fight and pay the price of reading and speaking the Word, eliminating negativity and doubt, and making sure we are not quenching the Spirit (I Thess. 5:14-22) or grieving the Holy Spirit (Eph. 4:22-5:7). The service ended by communion being served.
Dr. Kandole reminds us that Pastor Dale should be called Apostle Dale. Listen as Dr. David shares how he went from Uganda to CWI with the points in between. He tells how God has given him a desire for the continent of Africa. He would like to take Armada to Africa. Believe big!
You cannot be baptized in the Holy Spirit or be filled with the Holy Spirit unless you receive salvation. You must ask God for the filling of the Spirit, which is needed for service. (John 14:16; Luke 11:11ff; Acts 11:4ff; Acts 2:38, 39; Jude 20; Eph. 6:18)
Listen to this powerful message on grace and truth. If Jesus is preached in the spirit of grace and truth, the law can lead people to Christ, but the law does not set people free. It is the truth that sets people free. What should be preached? The truth of Jesus Christ should be preached. Preaching Jesus Christ and the spirit of grace and truth changes people, rather than preaching against immorality, fear, etc. Don’t be judgmental. You’re not the Holy Spirit. There was ministry time for Dr. David and Grace Kandole.
Pastor Dale preached on letting go of the past as trash. He explains the seven things you should know about the anointing. Ed Black, Ed Garner, and Karen Zelfimyan were ordained. (Others the Spirit ordained: couple from Colorado)
Do you honor (keep) your own word like a signature on an important contract? Do you have a small view of yourself? Do you believe what God sees in you? You will get what you believe and say, because your words are binding. Believe all the things you say you will do, and know God’s love for you. It will give you the boldness to have faith for the big things. Don’t compare yourself with others.
We owe others our faith. Listen to find out how to keep your faith turned on. Scriptures: Luke 17:11-19;Acts 14:7-10; Luke 13:101-17; I John 3:8; Jonah 2:7-9.
After the Lord gave several words, Pastor Bob preached on II Chron. 7:14. We, as the Body of Christ, are responsible for some of our nation’s hurts. We are to do the works He called us to as missiles. We are to focus on Jesus Christ, not on the circumstances. We are to spend time at Jesus’ feet in His presence and in His grace and work with God, not for Him. That’s when revival, returning to life, will come to bring national healing.
Born-again believers are God’s elect, who are all chosen to pray and make petitions to God. We are to be His ambassadors, enforcing His jurisdiction. Don?t pray until you can pray in faith, so you can use prayer effectively. Pastor Dale encouraged us to make a list of 10 people we are praying for. 1) II Cor. 4:3 pray to bind the devil from making attacks on them and pray for them to be loosed to be saved. 2) Eph. 1:16-18 pray that the eyes of their understanding would be enlightened (wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. 3) Praise God and worship Him, and 4) do it tomorrow and tomorrow… Talk to God about men.
Listen as Pastor Dale tells four of seven ways to believe to receive answers to your prayers. Matt. 21:22 Ask in prayer, believe, and you shall receive.
Ask and I’ll give you the heathen for your inheritance. The harvest is plenteous, but the laborers are few, pray for more laborers. However, don’t pray for something that you’re not willing to do. He’ll send you with a commission and authority…dominate where you go. Three things to pray, Lord give me the right message at the right time; open the door of utterance into people’s lives; pray that the Word will continue to run its course and be glorified.
Pastor Dale updates the congregation on the outreach of CWI to Delta, Colorado and Chester County, Pennsylvania and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The wealth of the ungodly will be given to the righteous when the wicked are saved. Success is measured by obedience.
Listen as Pastor Dale expounds on each of the seven steps to answered prayer. Having problems with your thoughts and emotions? Listen to this helpful sermon.
Christopher shares pictures from his crusades/ministry and then preaches on Luke 4:14-22. We, as the Body of Christ, need to develop godly habits, be faithful, committed, and be good to our word. We are in a time of mercy and salvation, not judgment. Jesus caught the Jews attention in the synagogue when He stopped reading the scriptures before the end of the passage and shocked them by saying that He fulfilled the scripture He was reading (Is. 61). Jesus was declaring He was the jubilee (Lev. 25). He was the Lamb, Pentecost was the fire, and the pastor preaching the Gospel is the priest blowing the trumpet. Believe and speak the work of God until it engulfs the sickness.
John 16:23; John 14:12-14; Acts 3:1-10; Ps. 91:1-3. The devil is scared of us, because he knows we have the authority to stop him. Do not tolerate him or his snares, but cast him out. There is a difference between praying in the name of Jesus Christ and using the name of Jesus Christ in authority. Live in the secret place of the Almighty. The secret is in what you are saying, such as who you are in Christ.
We must reclaim the healing Gospel of Jesus Christ. You will get a foundation for faith in God/Jesus as the healer by considering: What is your attitude towards God? How does God see you? Why does God heal us? What causes disease? What does the Old Testament say about healing?
Christopher Alam preaches on suffering and misconceptions about suffering, especially concerning health and healing.
Christopher preaches on what a covenant is, different covenants in the Bible, and most importantly, what the blood covenant of Jesus with God did for all people. He further explained Paul’s teaching concerning the First Communion.
Listen as Christopher takes us from our limitations to the possibilities of Jesus Christ in us. He defines faith and carefully explains the difference between faith and hope. How do we go from hope to faith? What is the prayer of faith? Scriptures: Rom. 12:3; Heb. 11:6, 1, 2; Rom. 4:17; Mark 11:23-24; James 5:15-18; I John 5:14 and 15.
There was ministry to people who are willing to go to a higher level of intercession. Pastor Bob preaches on faith. Nothing is impossible to those who believe. Faith enemies are doubt, unbelief, fear, lies. We must contend for the faith, sacrifice our bodies, and stand fast in one spirit, with one mind (the mind of Christ), and pray in the Spirit. Let the Word of God work in you to get rid of doubt.
People came to Jesus, often desperate for a miracle. Do not let someone’s rejection of your wanting to minister to him or her hinder you, but get your heart back and keep reaching out to people until you get 100%. Start with faith, not feeling. Draw closer to God and the anointing will increase in you. We must respect and honor the name of Jesus. He touched people. Prepare people to receive ministry by sharing testimonies of your healings and God’s blessings.
After a powerful time of testimonies, worship, and words having been given, Pastor Bob preaches on fighting for your victory. Listen as Pastor Bob shares his testimony. Scripture texts: I John 5:1-5; I Cor. 15:57; I Tim. 6:12; II Tim. 4:1-5.
Did you ever connect helping the poor with healing? Listen as Pastor Bob uses scripture to show how esteeming others more than yourself changes the poor or needy person’s prosperity. (Poor and needy can be any person without the Lord Jesus Christ.) It also allows you to “put a demand on” God and to remind Him that He will deliver, preserve, strengthen, and sustain you on your sickbed. Ps. 41:1-3. Other scriptures: Phil. 2:1-5; I Tim. 2:1-4; John 15:12-14; I Cor. 10:24; III John 2; Prov. 28:27; Prov. 14:21; Prov. 19:17. Also: Pastor Bob gave a couple words and some testimonies were shared.
Gen. 28:11-22 and Gen. 32:24-29. Problem to pillow to pillar. How do you keep your testimony and joy fresh? Know Jesus in a personal relationship and grow up! Don’t pet your problems, but push into God, pray and don’t let go. It will change your identity, like Saul to Paul, Jacob to Israel. There are different stages of spiritual growth. Personal victory marks a person. Don’t love the world and its things. You must forsake for the mark of maturity. Some things in your life you can’t be prayed for or anointed to do. You have to get alone with God to deal with them. Listen as Pastor Dale shares powerful testimonies from the Ukraine: cross-eyes healed, epileptic child healed, and a man who left his personal relationship with Christ.
III John 2 (all to prosper) is for everyone. Ask God why it is not happening for you. Is it because you have gone on the path away from God? Is it because your words do not line-up with the Word of God? The only thing between you and the manifestation of healing for you is faith. Do not consider your flesh, but DO THE WORD! SPEAK THE WORD! We will only do and act on what we truly believe. Be the church and take the Gospel to the world.
Pastor Dale continues to preach on Gen. 28:11-13, 16, in which Jacob made a pillow out of his problem and made it into a pillar to worship the Lord. We live in the natural, but we need to move in the spiritual. Change your environment if it is not good. Faith does not deny reality. Faith addresses tragedies, because the greatest victory is resurrection. In the light of eternity, your affliction is nothing. Look at the things that are not seen and are eternal. Look at the answer. It is long in duration and eternal. Dwell on Jesus! Be thankful!
Dr. Kandole shares what happened during his time in Portugal and Kenya. He charged us with working together under Apostle/Pastor Dale’s vision. We will see the miraculous, like in Mark 2:1 with the paralytic man, when we use our callings and abilities under the faith and vision of the man of God. Honor the man of God; he is NOT a hired man. When we honor and receive the apostle, pastor, teacher, evangelist, and prophet, then the people will be perfected. If we do not, then we short-circuit the miraculous. There are lots of preachers, but few men of God. Even Jesus could not do mighty works because He was not honored in His hometown. Once your leader has heard from God, you do not need a confirmation. (He also ministered a Word from the Lord for Ethan Armstrong.)
Using Mark 6:1-4, Dr. Kandole exhorts CWI to honor, pray for protection, obey, and come under vision of the man of God, Apostle and Pastor Dale Armstrong, and to partake in the same grace that God has given him. We need to show our appreciation for the gift of God. Receive him as the man of God, remember his labor and sacrifice and pray for him, refresh him and his family, respect him as father and builder of the body, reassure him of your love for him and his family, and run with his vision. Pastor gave a demonstration of the apostolic ministry and then there was a time of ministry.
Keith and Mary Hudson are from Oceanside, California. They ministered the Word and the prophetic. They released an anointing for God to open our eyes so that we can see through the eyes of the Master. Instead of information, we are at a time when we need revelation, the seer anointing. An anointing was released for businesses and finances. Confirming prophetic words were given to many people of all ages in the congregation.
Keith and Mary Hudson speak prophetically about the time we are in. God is sending His hand back to the church to deliver the church out of the hands of man and back to God. In I Chron. 21:13 King David said that he would rather fall into the hand of God than the hand of man. God is releasing a wholeness anointing. Put everything into the hand of God. Keith and Mary ministered prophetically to many people in the congregation.
Ray Hurst and Warren Thomas shared their testimonies early in the service. Pastor Bob, Pastor Dale, and Pat Denlinger gave words. Pastor Dale stated what the Lord told him: If you thank Me for what I did in the past (a specific miracle), I will do it again. Pastor Dale preached on God’s authority. Order comes before increase. God is stitching the body tighter together. The good shepherd (pastor) gives his life for the sheep; he is a servant of God, not man. Pastor Dale told of a missionary who would not submit to the spiritual authority in the man of God over him, and how to cost him his life. How does God use authority? He uses it to fix the abuse of authority and to bless. (Ps. 2:1-3) Where does authority come from? It comes from relationship. To whom do we submit? We submit to the Word of God, to our elders, and to the anointing. Don’t confuse the anointing with talent. The “head” is the source of supply, and the anointing comes from the “head” down.
God wants us to understand and use the authority He has given us as believers. When God calls someone, He gives them the authority to carry out that call. Everything must submit to God’s authority. When we move in His authority, it does not leave people the way they are, but it changes them. Know your authority over sickness, disease, and demons. We have heavenly authority, so we do not need to fear. Authority is tied up with faith and released with your mouth. Do not walk around as if you are defeated. Christ has defeated the enemy on your behalf.
1) The parable of the talents in modern terms. 2) Village boy in Ukraine who goes from having no money to selling fruit, to buying a car, to becoming a taxi driver, to buying a second car and becoming an employer. If you cannot do what you like to do, like what you can do. 3) Man whose wife needed $60,000/year cancer treatments to live. He only made $50,000/year, yet he worked to pay for her treatments for the nine years that she lived. What is in your hand?
If you make $50,000 a year, you are in the top 1% of the world’s population. Develop your gifts. Change is not easy and is painful. If you have a habit, it develops a rut in your brain, and you keep slipping right into it when making the same decisions. DO NOT BE SATISFIED THAT GOD’S WORD IS NOT WORKING IN YOUR LIFE. The Word must find faith in our hearts. God wants to rewire you, but in our lower level thinking, He cannot. HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT TO SUCCEED?
A competing commitment is a commitment that competes and undermines your true commitment. Examples are: rejection, looking good, fear of man, and fear of failure. Commit to the destiny God has for you and accept your inheritance- you are a new creation, an overcomer, and strong in the Lord. Commit to read the book of Acts.
Ps. 139:1-14. The darkest times are when you are satisfied, have no vision or purpose. DO NOT BE SATISFIED! Discoveryour gift. Develop your gift. Deliver the gift for the glory of God. Determine not to let the devil get it. Do not let the devil kill, steal, or destroy. Knowing God is intimacy that brings conception. Glenn shares that after much prayer and time with the Holy Spirit, he becomes pregnant with a show. There is movement, it gets bigger, and more is brought into it, such as music and costumes. When the birth is about to take place is when Satan hits. Immediately after the show begins, he must seek the next vision. Set your mind on things above. Your mind is the spiritual womb. Your brain carries out the goals to your body. It is the master control of your body. Think heavenly ideals in your mind. Get the mind of the Spirit. How do you renew your mind? 1) Believing and doing the Word of God. 2) Inspiration by God, nature, the Word. 3) Receivingrevelation. 4) Illumination through the Word. The Holy Spirit is like a power line transformer. He distributes the power so we can handle it.
Take notes from what you hear and read. You must do what everybody else is trying to avoid. You have to tell your brain to do what it needs to do and to obey you. Transformation technology: God does not want to improve us. He wants to transform us. He is calling us to live a supernatural life. If you see the kingdom of God, you do not care about the cost. Seek what God has for you all day. Take care of your basics- love, God, marriage, family, work. Knowledge is “out of the rut” and does not transform you. We need spiritual transformation. Those who know how to, will get a job. Those who know why will be the boss. Lay up treasures in heaven.
Your life will always move into the dominant visions, images, and thoughts that you have. Advertizing is based on fear, so you will buy something. Relationships greatly impact your life. There are others you need to connect with who have the keys for your life. Your life is defined by your friends. God cannot get some things to us, because we are envious of something in another person. Honor that quality, but do not be envious of it. Do not stay where you are if God tells you to change. Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Do not identify with your sin. God is for us, not against us.
Dogs love steaks, but they will settle for bones. Where is the steak in your life? Choose to, rather than have to. Conformity is your enemy. Take authority over your life. Ed tells the story of a trip to a gold mine and the lessons he learned there. Be diligent. Find the gold dust in what you are doing. Be a support to those in the harvest field. Support someone to replace you. Create a solution. You have to let go to get the gold. Release it to God. Practice NOT condemning, complaining, or criticizing for seven days. Be a gate-keeper: the ear gate, eye gate, the spoken word gate, association gate, and the environment gate. Who do you associate with? Are you in a dead church? Pre-play your vision. Do you have a scarcity or abundance context of life? Convergence- focus on one thing and get rid of distractions. Congruence- Are you congruent with your destiny? Get rid of “pop-ups”. Be a laser and get rid of the grumpy, critical, condemning, and complaining. Be a believer first.
The roadmap to a successful destiny is Mark 11:22-24. Have faith in God. Tell your mountain where to go. Have absolute confidence in victory. Your spoken words have power, and you will have what you say. Be specific in what you say. Ask in prayer. Believe and write down your goal, and take personal responsibility. Where have you quit?

At the end of his life, King Saul said he played the fool. At the end of Apostle Paul’s life, he said he had finished the course and wanted to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and become like Him in death. How do you get beyond broken dreams? They lead to disappointment, the discouragement, then being distraught, then destruction, and depression, and then despair. Glenn tells how he loved nature, his parents encouraged his gift in art, and his father was a wonderful storyteller. He shares how God took him from being a dairy farmer, to a broken dream, to a new dream of marriage and serving in Allentown State Hospital on their dairy farm, to doing paintings in the afternoons when he was not working, to selling his paintings by the truckloads, to buying a camera and becoming a photographer. Do not despise the day of small beginnings.
Glenn continues to tell the testimony of God’s goodness as he went from working for the Allentown State Hospital to Manheim where he had a studio in his basement and worked for Graybill’s Dairy. Then he started slide shows with music, and after displaying his artwork at the Manheim farm show, he had so many orders to do painting of farms that eventually he had to quit his dairy job. He kept increasing projectors for the slide shows and went over the country and into Canada with it. The Lord asked him if he wanted to live like that for the rest of his life? The change was to have the people come to the show instead. Thirty thousand people came to LBC during 10 weeks to see his slide shows with 15 projectors. Then he bought 3 acres for Living Waters. At the same time he was preaching and leading his church, doing portraits, wedding pictures, and slide shows. He shares the miracles God did financially in each step. He left the pastorate and after two men gave him confirmation, he bought the 55 acres that Sight and Sound are on. He tells of a miracle of finding an “ocean” of water for the entertainment center, getting inspiration for Noah at the farm show, and the financial miracle that followed the devastating fire of the first Sight and Sound building. His wife, Shirley, reminded him that it was their calling, not just a ministry or a business, so they rebuilt. The day after she said that, he drew the plans for the Millennium Theater. Everything in his life is a testimony of God taking him a step higher.
