gift of faith: brain aneurism healed

AW gift of faith
gift of faith

Lots of new testimonies for healing! For example, When Bud’s wife Gina came down with a sudden stage-5 brain aneurism, he had a choice; he could either believe the doctor’s report that she would not be leaving the hospital alive, or believe God’s word. This is the story about one family’s fight to stand firm on God’s promises to see Gina become a walking miracle. Watch this:

when you pray for something and it does not look right

Jeremiah 2911Looking through some of the audio prayers we recorded for patients I came upon two prayers to help strengthen an end state cancer patient whom the doctors had advised to be transferred to hospice. She continued to believe in God during her medical treatment. At that time she was in regular severe pain despite her increasing reliance on morphine. She made a decision to rest with a Christian family instead of staying in a hospice. During the last stage of her fight she had good social support through the love and care of good friends who got to know her through her involvement in the church and prayer group who only came to know of her case then. She passed on despite the medical treatment and prayers.

Why? We cannot help but ask.

Today while studying for my Bible College courses, I come upon the following teaching which I find very relevant to my question. The teaching is on the case of Jesus reprimanding His disciples for not having faith concerning a boy who suffered from epilepsy in Matthew 17:21. When the disciples prayed they saw things in the physical realm like the symptoms actually got worse. The bystanders/crowd were pressing in. The patient’s father/family was anxious and disappointed. Unbelief in us rises and can negate our faith.

How to stay in faith? How to overcome our natural unbelief in spiritual/supernatural things? It takes practice and focus. Fasting and praying is one effective way to do that. I pray we all learn to develop a close relationship with God and become more and more sensitive to His spiritual reality, hearing Him and aligning our prayers with Him.

“When you pray for things, sometimes it gets worse instead of better. And the reason is is because the devil, you flushed him out in the open. He is going to have to leave if you continue to stand in faith. And so he will do something to manifest something contrary to what you have believed to try and get you into unbelief that will negate your faith.”
“And so, when you pray for something and it does not look right, how do you overcome that natural unbelief that comes against you through that? Prayer and fasting is what does that…you are talking to a God that you cannot see…And then you hear Him, and do you know what? That goes against all of your natural senses…And if you live a life of prayer, if you have much prayer, then do you know what it does? You get your senses accustomed to, “There is more going on than what I can see, taste, hear, smell, or feel.” Especially when you pray and ask God for wisdom, and then God speaks to you, and you act on it. And now you see that it works, and everything worked out…” (Andrew Wommack)

Here are links to resources that will help explain further about our insensitivity to God and how to overcome that hindrance to our receiving what God has given.

a powerful testimony of an ordinary man who heard God and followed for fifty years…

AW testimony“When Andrew first went on television, the Gospel Truth broadcast only had 3 percent coverage in the United States. Now, with recent additions to ministry coverage, the program reaches a potential 3.2 billion people worldwide. By God’s grace, the Gospel is going farther and deeper than ever before!…”

“It all began when Andrew was born again at just eight years old. Although he avoided the rebellious phase often associated with adolescence, he believed that through his own righteousness, he could develop a relationship with the Lord. But then, on a Saturday night in 1968, everything changed. Andrew realized he had fallen into the bondage of legalism and began confessing his self-righteousness, expecting the wrath of God to fall. Instead of wrath, however, God’s presence flooded him with love. “God’s love consumed me,” he says. “When I was at my worst, God’s love was the strongest.” This encounter changed his life forever and motivated him to follow God’s leading in his life. He decided to leave college, even though that meant losing his student deferment. Drafted into the Army and shipped to Vietnam, he served as a chaplain’s assistant. Despite how difficult and dangerous things were on the front lines, God used that time to ground Andrew in His Word and begin establishing the course of his life.

Upon his return, Andrew submitted to the call of God to be a teacher of the Word. He and Jamie were married in 1972, and together they began teaching Bible studies. Over the next six years, they would pastor three small churches and complete their family with two sons, Joshua and Jonathan Peter.

In 1976, Andrew broadcast his first Gospel Truth radio program on a little country-and-western station in Childress, Texas. By 1980, Andrew and Jamie had moved their ministry to Colorado Springs. Their vision was becoming quite clear: to teach the truth of the Gospel to the body of Christ throughout the United States and the world, with special emphasis on God’s unconditional love and the balance between grace and faith. They were fulfilling that vision by traveling to speaking engagements, producing radio broadcasts, and distributing audio cassette tapes, which were provided at no cost to those who could not afford them.

Andrew Wommack on radio
In 1976, Andrew broadcast his first Gospel Truth radio program on a little country-and-western station in Childress, Texas.

God began speaking to Andrew about 2 Timothy 2:2. In that scripture, Paul told Timothy to take the things that he had learned and commit them to faithful men who would be able to teach others. Andrew knew God wanted him to do the same. In 1994, a cornerstone of the ministry was laid in place with the dedication of Charis Bible College—a college committed to equipping the saints for ministry by providing sound biblical teaching and practical, hands-on training.

In January of 2000, Andrew broadcasted the first Gospel Truth television program on INSP Network. Response to the message was tremendous, and since then, the Gospel Truth has been added to over twenty networks including The Church Channel, Daystar, God TV, and CNL, as well as over 500 television stations around the globe. And the Gospel Truth continues to grow.
But God was putting even bigger things on Andrew’s heart.

The ministry quickly outgrew its first two buildings, in Manitou Springs and on Robinson Street in Colorado Springs. Andrew began looking for a new home for the ministry. Although he saw several move-in-ready properties, he knew the ministry needed more space than they could offer. Instead, he chose the partly finished, but much larger, Elkton Drive location. AWM moved into the Elkton building in 2004, and for years this location was able to accommodate substantial growth for Charis Bible College, the Communication Services Department, Product Services Department, Television Department, Marketing Department, and the other departments that help make this ministry a success around the world.

In early 2011, AWM continued to grow in its reach and started to broadcast the Gospel Truth program on TBN. This nearly doubled the viewership and was a huge answer to prayer!….” (Excerpts quoted from the link below)

Read on for the full amazing and powerful testimony. Be encouraged as you read about how one man heard God and continued to hear and obey and let the impossible God do the impossible in his ordinary life. (This comment is this blogger’s own)

A reading recommendation: spiritual dyslexia

oywj“Most Christians have a disease which can be fatal if not treated. It is spread through close contact with religion and is highly contagious. This disease makes the individual see everything backwards. Instead of God’s love compelling them to live holy, they think living holy will cause God to love them. This causes chronic fatigue and frustration from trying to give what they haven’t received. Discover the joy of knowing we are already loved by God.” (Andrew Wommack)

Spiritual Fitness 26th February (from Andrew Wommack’s Daily Devotional)
And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast [it] from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not [that] thy whole body should be cast into hell.
Matthew 5:23-30
Is Jesus advocating dismembering of our bodies? Quite the contrary. He is drawing on the universal drive within every person of self preservation to make a point. If you value your body highly enough that you would never sacrifice one of its parts, then you should esteem your spiritual well being much higher.

Ever since the fall of Adam and Eve, man’s priorities have been misplaced. Great effort is put into preserving our physical life while our spiritual condition is often overlooked. It constantly gets put on the “back burner” while we tend to more urgent matters of this life.

Yet our physical bodies are just temporary. If we live 70 years or more, that is just a fraction of a second in the light of eternity. Our spiritual man lives forever. The state in which it exists is determined by choices made in this life.

Therefore, choose to make your spiritual condition your top priority. Spend more time on your spiritual well being than you do your physical well being. You and everyone around you will be eternally grateful that you did.

Decisions Determine Destiny (a call)

andrew-wommack-teachesI have decided to share this letter as I have subscribed and partnered with Charis Bible College World Outreach. By faith I decided sowing the seed of a mere $30 a month. What is a $30 to you? To a person not living in a developed world it could mean a lot. By faith I am also a registered first year correspondence student with the Charis Bible College through one of their overseas branches. I agreed with Andrew that “Decisions Determine Destiny”. I was born again in 1983 and for twenty years I tried to read the Bible and live the Bible way. I invested a fortune in buying many costly reference and commentary books from many theologians before I heard of Andrew’s free teaching. Despite the good intention and my zeal to serve God and live a better life (more abundant life) I increasingly realized that my discipleship ministry had no power and the word taught to me had no reality as they were mere words (in black and white letters). Finally I decided to listen to the free audio teachings of Andrew, which someone gave me around 2003 and the truth of the Gospel of Christ with special emphasis on God’s unconditional love and the balance between grace and faith has changed my destiny. The difference is obvious. Andrew teaches the Word differently. The powerful change to my way of thinking has changed my life. The Word becomes life and spirit to me. My God is now real. My life and ministry have been transformed. What happened? My mind has been renewed. The change is significant. I thank the Lord now for the divine appointment without which I would have missed out my true destiny. Andrew’s vision forty years ago has in turn birthed many others’ (including mine).

~~~~~~~~~Here is Andrew’s letter~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m sure you’ve heard the statement “Life is a series of choices.” To some, that’s too simple, but it really is true. Your decisions determine your destiny.

Jamie and I recently took a vacation. We didn’t get in the car and just go in any direction; we had a goal, and every turn we took was calculated to help us reach our destination. We checked the map often and made a few adjustments when we missed a turn. We didn’t do it perfectly, but we got to where we wanted to go, because of decisions.

Likewise, you make decisions every day that move you closer to your God-ordained destiny—or away from it. There is no such thing as just sitting still or putting God’s plan for your life on hold. That’s a deception. God’s will for you is intertwined with His will for others, and that is a constantly moving and changing dynamic. It’s like catching a flight. You can miss it.

It’s true that the Lord can get you to your destiny another way. He’s certainly smarter than a GPS device that “recalculates” when you miss a turn. There is always a later flight with God. But who wants the hassle, disappointment, and delay that comes with missing a connection? I want God’s best. Don’t you?

When you are on a road trip, those who are ahead of you can be valuable sources of information. It doesn’t matter how you feel about them personally. The fact that they have already driven the road gives them insights that you need. They can tell you what accommodations and restaurants are available. Or they can let you know of a wreck or construction ahead and then advise an alternate route. You would be foolish not to draw on the insights of others who have gone before you.

With that in mind, we have put together a number of what we call Destiny Stories. These are the stories of individuals who have made choices that changed their lives for the better. They are people just like you, with challenges, failures, pasts, and even successes that stood in the way of them following God’s will for their lives. But with a few good decisions, they made their lives count.

Take, for instance, Kevin and Rachel Dowling. They were living on the streets of New York. Homeless and helpless, they were dope addicts with no good future. But through a woman at one of the soup kitchens they frequented, they found the Lord and His love. Five years later, they were free from dope, but still lacked direction for their lives. They decided to come to Charis Bible College (CBC) in Colorado Springs, and everything began to change.

Not only have they been set free from the feelings of unworthiness and shame that dominated their lives, but now they are bringing others into their newfound freedom. The ones who used to sleep in cardboard boxes and eat out of trash cans are now providing food and the Gospel to thousands of other people who need a new destination.

Or take Leland Shores, who was a successful businessman in Dallas, Texas. While he lay on the floor, nearly choking to death on a sandwich, his life flashed before him, and he knew that all of his “successes” were worth nothing. When he recovered, he made the decision to sell everything he had and dedicate his life to the Lord.

That one decision led Leland to CBC and eventually Africa, where he helped establish the Discipleship Evangelism course, which has now reached nearly 500,000 people. Leland also established the AWM bookstore in downtown Kampala, Uganda, where hundreds of people have been born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit. If that weren’t enough, Leland started CBC-Uganda, with over 100 students who are changing Uganda.

Leland died unexpectedly in June 2011, but in the eleven years since he made the decision to make his life count for the Lord, he did more than most people do in a lifetime. And because Leland’s emphasis was on discipleship, his disciples are continuing the work he began. Numerous people have been raised from the dead through those Leland reached. Disciples are ministering on the radio daily, and others are holding crusades with signs and wonders. Leland’s impact is just beginning.

Carrie Pickett is a young woman who came to our college fresh out of high school. She had known that the Lord had a call on her life since she was a little girl, but she was transformed by the Word and her missions trip to Russia. God put a love in her heart that she has been following for the last thirteen years in Russia.

Some would think of all that Carrie gave up to go to Russia. She’s an attractive young lady who put her personal desires for a family on the altar to serve the Lord. But God had the perfect husband for Carrie—in Russia. She would have missed him if she hadn’t followed the Lord to the ends of the earth. Now she and her husband, Mike, have a beautiful daughter, Elliana.

Their lives are making a big impact. They not only have established a CBC in St. Petersburg, but they also have a goal of starting 1,000 new Bible colleges in the next five years and are well on their way to seeing the completion of that vision. They were also responsible for getting my books and television broadcasts translated into Russian. Through their efforts, the Gospel Truth television broadcast now reaches 160 million homes in Russia every weekday across eleven time zones. They also direct our AWM-Russia office, which ministers to thousands of Russian-speaking people throughout the world.

What would all of these people’s lives have been like if they hadn’t made the decisions they did? An even greater question might be, what would the lives of the millions of people they’ve affected have been like without them? Every one of us has a God-ordained destiny that is designed to touch others. We are carrying other people’s miracles. I don’t think we can fully comprehend this. It is certain, however, that the lives of millions of people were changed simply because these “heroes of the faith” made the right decisions.

Are you certain that the decisions you are making every day are the ones the Lord wants you to make? If you can’t answer that affirmatively, then what is stopping you? Most people don’t intentionally decide to miss their destinies; they just get busy with the cares of this life, and before they know it, they are in a rut that they can’t seem to get out of.

But remember, your life is the result of choices—YOUR choices. Others can influence or hinder you, but your choices are the determining factor of your destiny. It is never too late to make the right choices.

My spiritual life started with making a choice. I had been seeking to know the Lord’s will for my life when He directed me to Romans 12:1-2, which says,

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

He showed me His will for my life was to be completely committed to Him. That’s the main thing. I was only seventeen years old at the time, but I started seeking to become a living sacrifice to the Lord with all my heart.

That decision led to a miraculous encounter with the Lord on March 23, 1968, when God revealed Himself to me in a way that changed my life forever. I have never been, and will never be, the same. I made an absolute and complete, unconditional surrender to the Lord that has propelled me to the life I live today. I’ve made thousands of decisions since then, but the decision to unconditionally follow God’s will for my life started it all.

The fact that you are receiving this letter is the result of decisions made by you and me. I decided to follow the Lord and teach His Word, and you decided to contact us in response to something He spoke to you through me. Our lives have been connected because of decisions. Decisions determine destiny.

My study of the Word of God has been the single most influential force on my decisions. God’s Word is a light to our path (Ps. 119:105). It’s like I explained in my book Effortless Change, all we really have to do is put the seed of God’s Word in our hearts, and it will change us effortlessly. That’s how God established His kingdom.

Charis Bible Colleges are changing the lives of thousands of people through the ministry of God’s Word. We now have about 2,000 people involved in correspondence courses, online Bible courses, and our eighteen campuses. But we are reaching the limits of the number of people we can accommodate here at our campus in Colorado Springs.

As you know, I saw this coming, and the Lord directed me to start preparing for a Bible college campus where we could train at least 3,000 people. We purchased 157 acres in 2009 and just got released from some legal issues in June 2011. We are now in the final stages of getting all the work permits. It might be possible to break ground in November, but with the weather in Colorado, that could be tough.

I’ve decided to have a groundbreaking on March 23, 2012, the forty-fourth anniversary of my miraculous encounter with the Lord. That is the night I made a decision that has led me to this place. I think that beginning date is providential.

I encourage you to go to our website and view the special live-streaming internet broadcast I did back in July. I fully discussed where we are in the process of building this Bible college campus and where we are going with it. I also asked that you help me make another decision.

Our CBC campus will have two main buildings. Together they will give us 220,000 square feet of space to train the men and women who will be world changers. That’s twice the space we now occupy, and there is plenty of room for expansion if needed. But constructing these buildings is costly. Therefore, I am currently in the process of making a decision on whether I should build one building as a first step or build both of these buildings at the same time.

I’ve decided the Lord wants me to do this debt free. I’ve witnessed other ministries make decisions that put them under financial pressure, and it changed their ministries. I’ve decided not to do this. These buildings are just tools. I think they are necessary tools and I’m following the direction the Lord has given me, but I’m happy and blessed without them. Regardless of how long it takes or if I never see the building of this campus come to pass, I will still be blessed and in love with the Lord. I will not put this ministry in a bind for buildings.

Therefore, I am asking those whom God has joined to Jamie and my heart to help me decide how to approach this. I haven’t got the money to pay for this out of my pocket, and I’m not taking out a loan. I need to ask what you are willing to do. You are God’s bank.

To build the smaller structure would take 6,100 new Foundation Builder Partners averaging $60 per month for twenty-eight months. This half of the campus includes a 1,500-seat auditorium upstairs, a 500-seat auditorium, and twenty-three classrooms downstairs.

If I also build the 2,500-seat auditorium with all the offices and Phone Center at the same time, I would have to have 16,668 new Foundation Builder Partners for thirty-six months to complete the whole project.

I know these numbers may seem overwhelming, but if you look at this from the viewpoint of how many people we are reaching, this is an attainable goal. There are 86,000 people receiving this letter. A $14.63 gift per month from everyone for thirty-six months would pay for this whole project, debt free. When you factor in that millions of people watch my program daily, this becomes nothing. All things are possible with God (Mark 9:23).

I ask you to simply pray about this and do whatever the Lord leads you to do. I would remind you that I am in the process of making a decision on how to approach this project. It’s important to me that you let me know in the next month or two what the Lord is leading you to do. I must decide whether to build just one building or both of these buildings simultaneously. I will have to give direction to my builder by January 1.

On July 28, I broadcast, via the internet, a special video message talking about our progress on the development of The Sanctuary project thus far and the steps we will be taking in the near future. Please take the time to go to our website to listen to this message, and then watch the virtual tour. I know it will bless and encourage you.

Decisions do determine destiny, but those decisions must be based on the truth of the Word. It was the Word of God that changed my life, and it will change your life as well. To help you, I have spent years developing a study of the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John). It became the first edition of what we call the Life for Today Study Bible and Commentary.

In this Life for Today Study Bible: The Gospels Edition, I have arranged the four Gospels in parallel and chronological order. It makes it very easy to compare what each of the Gospels say about specific events in the life of Jesus. In addition, I also recorded an audio verse-by-verse teaching to accompany it. Previously this was only available through partnership, but it is now available as a standalone resource.

It includes the Life for Today Study Bible and Commentary: The Gospels Edition and over fifty-five hours of verse-by-verse teaching and commentary loaded onto one simple USB card as MP3 audio. In the old CD format, it required over seventy CDs. This study Bible and audio teaching together is valued at $600, but I am offering it for a gift of $155 or more.

I also encourage you to order our Destiny Stories DVD for a gift of $15 or more even if you do not become a Foundation Builder. Each story will encourage you to make the decision that will move you toward your own destiny.

The Lord has awesome things planned for your life. Regardless of what things look like now, your positive decisions can change everything.

Introducing you to a new lifestyle: Living in God’s Best!

20170204_105031Living in God’s Best: Change your address and live in God’s best!
Divine health and prosperity are better than divine healing and provision. If you can’t see the difference between the two, then maybe you’re only visiting God’s best instead of truly living in it.

Many Christians live in a place where it’s just a matter of time before there’s a crisis in their lives and they need a miracle. Miracles are great when you need one, but you weren’t meant to continually get by on them. God wants to change where you live. Let Andrew show you how to live in God’s best today!

LIVING in God’s Best by Andrew Wommack
Don’t Settle for Less
I have been meditating on this teaching for several years now, and I believe the Lord wants me to share it in a much bigger way than I have before. It’s about living in God’s best.

The Lord has really impressed on me that the main reason we aren’t living in His best is because we are willing to settle for less. Sometimes we are influenced more by the world than by God’s Word. We have been “dumbed down” to accept far less than what God has provided. As long as we can live with less than God’s best, we will.

If you’re not experiencing His best, you have to get sick and tired of being sick and tired. You have to have a holy dissatisfaction with mediocrity before you can experience all that God has for you. It doesn’t happen accidentally or automatically. If you don’t aggressively pursue it, you won’t get it.

Everything in our fallen world naturally goes from good to bad. Things don’t get better without effort. We have to seek to find, knock to get the door opened, and ask before we receive (Matt. 7:7). We must raise our sights and aim higher. Most people are shooting at nothing and hitting it every time.

Jeremiah 29:11 says, “I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” The New International Version says His thoughts “give you hope and a future.”

When the Lord spoke to Jeremiah to write these words, Israel was devastated. The city
of Jerusalem had been destroyed, and many people had been taken captive to Babylon.
Thoughts of peace were probably the last thing on their minds.

But Jeremiah went on to say in verses 12-13,

Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will
hearken unto you. [13] And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall
search for me with all your heart.

I’ve had people tell me they prayed and believed God, but nothing happened. These scriptures in Jeremiah promise otherwise. The key is, you have to seek with ALL your heart. That’s the missing element. You have to reach a point where you won’t live with anything less than God’s best.

This attitude is missing in the lives of far too many Christians. The bar of expectation has been lowered in regards to healing, finances, and more. I am not trying to condemn anyone. We have all been raised in and influenced by an ungodly culture. And nobody learns how to receive God’s best overnight. It’s a process, but we need to begin moving in that direction. I haven’t arrived there either, but I have left and am on my way.

I have told this story before, but it is such a good illustration that I want to share it again. A man asked for prayer in one of my meetings and told me about a terrible pain in his neck, in addition to a long list of other problems: his sciatic nerve causing leg and foot pain, neuropathy, and on and on.

Then he said, “But if God could just heal the pain in my neck, I could live with the rest.” I said, “Well, I understand. If we asked God to heal all of those things at once, the lights in heaven might dim. I’m not sure God could pull that off.”

The guy just looked at me for a minute and then replied, “That was pretty stupid, wasn’t it?” And I agreed. You see, we don’t have to settle for less than complete healing–God’s best. Like this man, it’s that attitude that keeps people from receiving their healings.

Christians should be walking in supernatural healing and financial prosperity. Many, however, are just as sick and broke as their unsaved neighbors. You will never receive God’s best until you become completely dissatisfied with second best–dissatisfied with mediocrity.

One of these days, we are all going to stand before God. And when we do, we will know all things even as we are known (1 Cor. 13:12). In an instant, we are going to know what we could have had while on this earth. We will understand that the same power that raised Christ from the dead was present within us all along (Eph. 1:18-20).

Unless you’re willing to stand and fight the fight of faith, you will be overcome by this world. If you don’t stir yourself up, you will settle to the bottom. The world isn’t going to encourage you toward God’s best, and most Christians aren’t either.

We have to recognize that it’s all about receiving what God has already done and not about getting God to do something He has yet to do. We don’t need God to heal us; by His stripes, we were healed (1 Pet. 2:24). That miraculous healing power is already in us. We don’t need God to move; we need to believe what He has already done and then learn how to receive it.

healed of 4th stage cancer: by the Words of God

2016-12-20-08-43-36The Mullins Family Story. When the Mullins’ 17-month-old son was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, their lives were turned upside down. See how God’s word transformed the Mullins’ lives. (Excerpts quoted from the original website)

Andrew Mullins
– Amazed By Grace –
Mike and Aster Mullins live with their family in Buncrana, Co. Donegal, Ireland, the home of the famous hymn, Amazing Grace. In September of 2009, they welcomed their fourth son into the world. Their new baby, Andrew, was the Mullins’ fifth child, and from the beginning, Aster considered him her victory baby.

In December 2010, Mike and Aster noticed something was bothering Andrew…

On February 25, 2011 the Mullins were told that Andrew had a very aggressive form of cancer called, High Risk Neuroblastoma. He was already at stage four and had a tumor measuring 7cm x 8cm x 21cm. Andrew was just 17 months old.

The Mullins, stunned by the news, found their lives turned upside down…Bone marrow tests and further, more invasive, scanning of Andrew’s body revealed that he had over 90% cancer in his bone marrow, and that the disease was in every bone of his body apart from his hands and his feet.

As they turned to the God they knew for help, they began to pray and plead for healing. In an effort to mobilize as many people as possible to pray for his son, Mike immediately set up a Facebook page for Andrew. The page brought nearly 5000 people together to “storm heavens gates” on Andrew’s behalf. Their battle raged…

Among the mail the family received after Grace’s birth, was a parcel which included Andrew Wommack’s teaching series, God Wants You Well. “The title, funny enough, really didn’t do it for me at all. At the time I was so raw, I thought, yeah right, what do I have to do for that?” recalled Aster. She and Mike put the teaching on a shelf—literally—for months.

…but after nearly six months of rigorous cancer treatment, and thousands of prayers and prayer meetings, Andrew’s progress was slower than expected, …they thought. “Do I have to beg God to have mercy on my child? Do I, as a human being, have more compassion than God does,” Mike wondered. Their prayer life changed at that point, from prayers begging God to help, to prayers asking God to teach them to pray.

Both Aster and Mike were exhausted…Mike, as tired and frustrated as he was, didn’t want to be in survival mode, he wanted to be in more-than-a-conqueror-mode. He also wanted to know what the Bible had to say about healing. It was at this low point, …that they finally listened to the first disk of the God Wants You Well series. Something in the message resonated deep within their hearts. “Wow, water to my parched, parched, dried out soul,” Aster declared.

“Although we had never heard this before, it was as if we had,” said Mike with regard to Andrew’s teaching. As the two listened and re-listened to the series they became convinced that it is always God’s will to heal and that He did want their son well. “We don’t have to storm Heaven’s gates, God is not the oppressor, nor was He using Andrew’s sickness to teach us a lesson,” realized Mike. They continued downloading and listening to Andrew’s teaching, and they were transformed by rightly discerning the Word of God.

God used Andrew’s teaching to point the Mullins back to His Word where they found promises to stand on for their son’s healing. “We found promises in the Word of God, such as in the book of Proverbs (15:30) where it says good news brings health to your bones.” said Mike.

After their eyes were opened to the Truth, they went to their son, and laid their hands on him with confident expectation. “We put our hands on his thigh bones and his pelvis and we said, ‘Bones, we’ve got good news for you, By His stripes you were healed (1 Peter 2:24). And in faith, with a total conviction in my heart, we spoke that Bible verse standing on the Word of God,” said Aster.

After their prayer, Andrew was tested to see if he had made any progress. To the hospital staff’s surprise, he had. The Mullins’ consultant called and she said, “I don’t know how to tell you this, but everything regarding Andrew is up in the air.” To which Mike inquired, “Is it up in the air good or up in the air bad? She said, “It’s up in the air good. Every one of Andrew’s bones are completely clean of cancer… We really didn’t expect this.”

While the news was unexpected by the doctors, it wasn’t a surprise to the Mullins. “We had learned how to pray with authority, and it worked,” said Mike.

Andrew still had active cancer near his spine, and due to its location, it was inoperable. As Andrew went in for continued treatment, Aster asked the Lord for something more. After the victory in Andrew’s bones, she felt they were finished using scriptures about bones—she asked the Lord for another weapon.

Faithful as always, the Lord showed Aster the story of Ehud (Judges 3:12-25). Through this passage, Aster saw her weapon revealed; …After treatment, when Andrew was tested again for cancer, and for any damage caused by the treatment, his results came back perfect; there was no sign of cancer or damage to any of his organs. His eyesight, hearing, heart, lungs and both kidneys were perfect.

The Mullins chose to believe what they had learned from Andrew Wommack, the truth about God—that it is always His will to heal—always…

Andrew Wommack Discussed the 2016 Presidential Election

andrew-wommack-cbc(quoted) James Robison recently discussed the 2016 Presidential election with evangelist Andrew Wommack:

James Robison: Andrew, your leadership role is greater now than it’s ever been. I really appreciated you sharing on your television program your wise and legitimate concern not only for our nation, but for freedom. Why do you feel so compelled to try to impress upon Christians the importance of this particular time and election?

Andrew Wommack: I think if Christians would have been vocal a long time ago, we wouldn’t even be in this situation. This situation is not just a Democrat or Republican issue; it’s an issue that has been brooding for a generation at least of the church being silent. I felt impressed that as a leader in the body of Christ I must encourage Christians to get out and vote. Then we also highlighted some of the issues. For example, I think whether you like the candidate or not, there are important issues such as the Supreme Court. We’re going to establish the Supreme Court for the next generation whether it’s liberal or whether it’s conservative. Issues about Israel — pro-Israel or against it. All of the issues regarding ISIS and people coming into our borders. We are really fighting for our nation. This is a pivotal election.

Robison: The differences in the two platforms are distinct. This is the most conservative platform one party has ever put forth, and the most liberal, anti-God ever put forth by the other. The right to life, Supreme Court, attack on freedom of religion, the whole tendency to teach people to depend on the federal government like it’s another Pharaoh and they can’t make it without him — that totally flies in the face of everything biblical and everything that has proven catastrophic historically.

Wommack: After those programs aired, the Trump campaign contacted me because we pointed out the exact things you are saying. They wanted me to endorse Donald Trump and I told them, “Look, it’s not that I am endorsing this person and all he does. I am endorsing the policies that he has vocally stood for. In my way of thinking there is no other stance that a Christian can take. Just like you’re saying one platform is anti-God, and the other one, at least the platform, has conservative values. We are all disappointed in the way politicians say one thing and do another, but you certainly don’t want to go with someone who is promising they are going to do everything against the Christian community.

We need to get to where we don’t let our personal offenses at some things overshadow the issues. The issues are critical and they are daylight and dark different between the Democrat and Republican parties.

Robison: I think the real issue is whether or not the church is going to behave like a healthy body of Christ, submitted to the head, rightly connected to one another, and whether or not we’re going to look like the family of the perfect Father that the fatherless world desperately needs to see.

One of the things that Christians tend to say is, “Your way of saying you are wrong needs to be said according to our dictates, our impression or our spiritual knowledge.” David really wept, broken and contrite, but he didn’t do it until Nathan pointed his finger in his face. It took a long time for him to get around to the contrition that in our eyes is so appropriate. But we don’t see that in Simon Peter after he denied Jesus three items. I don’t see him saying, “I’m sorry. I was wrong.” He said, “You know …” Of course we sense in that brokenness. And then he had an encounter with God and was the keynote speaker at Pentecost. I don’t think many church leaders today would have approved Simon Peter for the keynote address at Pentecost right after his denial.

Wommack: It’s not just a personality issue. You’ve got to look at the issues. The issues the Republicans are standing for line up with scripture, and the issues the Democrats are for are not according to scripture. I am not voting for a pastor in chief, I’m voting for a commander in chief. Trump has taken a strong stand against ISIS, and I believe his point that ISIS wouldn’t have existed without Hillary’s help. I believe that’s all true. I’m having to vote the issues, not a personality.

Robison: We don’t seem to realize there is more to it than personalities. For me, I won’t let up speaking the truth to whoever is elected. I am going to keep holding up the standard of God to all of them and I’m going to say to all of America, we’ve got to quit supporting these things that are absolutely certain to bring judgment and destruction on the people that support deception and the murder of the innocent, the casting aside of marriage, family and human sexuality. How can the church even be arguing among themselves when the issues are so serious?

Wommack: You would have thought after they brought up the videos that showed babies having their skulls cut open and their brains harvested to sell would have caused such an uproar that anyone who supported that would not be able to run for president, yet Hillary has supported that and we’ve got to take a stand against it.

Robison: The real key is whether we as Christians, and especially Christian leaders and pastors, are going to stop judging one another’s actions when we don’t even know all of the details. Just like one of the candidates said, “I would like to have wise spiritual counsel from leaders who are not agreeing to endorse me, but who will tell me the truth.” It looks like you would not be criticizing those people who said, “We want to go in and speak the truth as much as possible.” I’ve been talking to Mr. Trump head on and sowing faithfully the truth of God’s Word. I am sowing seed and trusting God that His Word won’t return void. Yet it seems like people who are praying with him and for him are being accused of supporting the wrong person while we’re doing nothing but proclaiming the truth. How do you feel about that?

Wommack: The same thing has happened to me and people have criticized me about it. I fought in Vietnam and there were people that behind the scenes I didn’t agree with on much of anything. Many of them had views that were completely opposite mine, but when we were in battle, we stood next to each other and fought together. I learned you do not have to like a person to be able to endorse them and stand with them when they are fighting evil. That’s what we’ve got to do in this election.

a better way to pray for healing

AW healing 2016Why are your prayers for healing not answered? How to receive healing through proclaiming the words of God? How long will it take for you to be fully restored to health? I listened to this series recently and found that the teaching is relevant for us today. I have included an article here so you have some ideas on the teaching. I have also included three audio MP3 links at the end of this blog. Do download and listen. There are important revelations. KNOW THE POWER OF GOD’S WORDS.

Psalm 89:34 New King James Version (NKJV)
My covenant I will not break,
Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.

A Better Way To Pray by Andrew Wommack
Decades ago, I was participating in an all-night prayer meeting bombarding the gates of heaven. I remember beating the wall and yelling, “God, if You loved the people in Arlington, Texas, half as much as I do, we’d have revival!” Immediately, my lightning-fast mind realized that something was seriously wrong with my theology. What was I thinking?

Did I really believe I loved these people more than God did? No, not exactly. Like many Christians, I believed God was angry with the human condition, and it was up to me to turn Him from wrath and judgment. I was interceding, or so I thought, pleading with God on the behalf of others. What could possibly be wrong with that? As I learned later, a lot.

The things the Lord has revealed to me about prayer since then have totally changed my life, and I’m now seeing miraculous results. If you aren’t getting the results you know the Lord wants you to have, maybe it’s time to consider a better way to pray. I’m not saying that anyone who doesn’t pray as I do is “of the devil.” I wasn’t “of the devil” in the way I used to pray. I loved God with all my heart, and the Lord loved me. But the results weren’t there.

First, we need to recognize that God isn’t angry at mankind anymore. He is no longer imputing or holding our sins against us.

God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

2 Corinthians 5:19

We are NOW reconciled to God through Jesus. That means we are in harmony and are friendly with God right now. He isn’t mad; He’s not even in a bad mood. The war between God and man is over. That’s what the angels proclaimed at the birth of Jesus.

Luke 2:14 says—

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

These angels weren’t saying that peace would reign on earth and that wars between people would cease. That certainly hasn’t happened. They were proclaiming the end of war between God and man. Jesus paid a price that was infinitely greater than the sins of the whole human race.

God’s wrath and justice have been satisfied. Jesus changed everything. God isn’t angry. His mercy extends to all people. He loves the world— not just the church— but the whole world. He paid for all sin.

The Scripture says in 1 John 2:2—

And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

In the Old Testament, God’s judgment was poured out on both individuals and nations. In the New Testament, God’s judgment was poured out on Jesus. That is the nearly-too-good-to-be-true news of the Gospel. We no longer get what we deserve; we get what Jesus paid the price for, if we will only believe.

Before I understood this, I would say, “If God doesn’t judge America, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” Now I say, “If God judges America, He will have to apologize to Jesus.” Understanding what Jesus did completely changes our perspective.

Second, Jesus is now the Mediator. A mediator is one who seeks to reconcile, or make peace between, two opposing parties. In the Old Testament, man had not yet been reconciled to God through Jesus. The people needed a mediator, someone to intercede with God on their behalf. That is where we find people like Abraham and Moses pleading with God.

In Genesis 18:23-25, Abraham interceded with God on behalf of Sodom and Gomorrah:

Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked? [24] Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein? [25] That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?

In fact, Abraham actually negotiated with God until He agreed not to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah for the sake of ten righteous people. But there weren’t ten righteous people in the whole city, and only some of Lot’s family survived. A similar account is recorded in Exodus 32:9-12 and 14. Here God was furious with the people, and Moses interceded for them:

The Lord said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people: [10] Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation. [11] And Moses besought the Lord his God, and said, Lord, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand? [12] Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people. [14] And the Lord repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.

Moses actually told God, “Repent!” What nerve! What’s more amazing is that God repented. From these and other stories in the Old Testament, modern-day “intercessors” believe we, too, must stand in the gap, or mediate, between God and man. Just as I did decades ago, they believe we must plead with God to save the lost, to withhold His wrath from those He is ready to judge, and to be merciful to those whose needs He is unwilling to meet because of their unworthiness.

That couldn’t be further from the truth , but it is what’s being taught in many churches today. It ignores the fact that Jesus is now seated at the right hand of the Father (Heb. 10:12), ever making intercession for us (Heb. 7:25). If Moses or Abraham could persuade God, don’t you think Jesus could do at least as well?

In 1 Timothy 2:5, we read—

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

In the New Covenant, Jesus is the ONLY mediator needed to stand between God the Father and mankind. Sin is no longer a problem with God; it’s been atoned for, and we are now the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. That is how God sees us. If we understand that, it will change the way we pray.

It was appropriate for Abraham and Moses to pray as they did because God’s wrath had not yet been appeased through Jesus. Today, under the New Covenant, if people try to mediate in that way, they are actually antichrist—against Christ. They are saying that Jesus was not enough and are not esteeming what Christ has done. When Jesus became our Mediator, He put all other mediators out of business—forever. I know these words are strong, but they are the truth.

Satan is behind much of the wrong teaching on “prayer.” Consider how crafty his plan is and the fruit it produces. He has convinced believers to stay in their closets, taking the place of Jesus in intercession. They spend hours pleading with God to turn from His wrath, to pour out His Spirit, and to meet the needs of the people.

Meanwhile, families, coworkers, and neighbors are going to hell and dying from disease. The Bible doesn’t say that salvation comes through intercession but by the foolishness of preaching (1 Cor. 1:21). And we are not told to pray for the sick but to heal the sick (Matt. 10:8) by commanding healing into their broken bodies.

We have been deceived into believing prayer is all about persuading God to release His power. We believe that He can save, heal, and deliver but that He is waiting on us to shape up and earn it. The truth is, we don’t deserve it, and we will never be good enough. Because of Jesus, all that God has is ours. That’s good news. We no longer need to beg or plead; we need to exercise the authority He has given us and receive His blessings.

The effects of Praise (Quotes)

AW effects of praiseWHY WE PRAISE? IS PRAISE AN OPTION? OR IS PRAISE A NECESSITY?

Here are some answers/quotes from a book on “The Effects of Praise” by Andrew Wommack.

chapter one: “Why we praise”
Praise is a necessity, as we see in Deuteronomy. (28:45-48)
We see how seriously God looks at praise from His people.
…but a lack of joy and gladness of heart was included in their sin. They were not thankful for the abundance f things God had given them. praise was not being returned unto God.
He is worthy of our praise. (psalm 107:1,8; 29:2; 66:4; 7:17; 50:23; 34:1; 103:1)
I like Psalm 100:4 That is the way our relationship with Him should be. “Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name.”
Praise brings pleasure to God
Our number one priority is to be loving God personally-…It’s not enough just to give God our tithes; we need to give God our hearts.
God created man (human beings) because He wanted someone to fellowship with, commune with, and to have pleasure in.
praise is God’s will for us. (Revelation 4:11)
Peace is a benefit of praise. (Philippians 4:4-7)
When you are praising God, a supernatural peace will follow, a peace that no man can understand or explain. There is no physical reason for it, but the peace of God will keep your heart and mind.
If your mind is stayed on God, you will have perfect peace.
Praise is strength (Psalm 8:2)
The strength is specifically to be used against ur enemy.
If sickness tries to come upon your body, instead of spending so much time dealing with the devil and making that your priority begin to praise God and thank Him for the healing that has been promised to you. The medical profession has statistics that show that a happy and joyful person is much healthier than a person who is morbid, sad, and depressed.
Praise God for healing you, and let the joy of the Lord be your strength.
Praise blesses the Lord
Jesus gave priority to a personal relationship with God.
the way we establish this personal relationship with God is not limited to praise, but I believe that praise is the way to begin this love relationship with God.
If you don’t have a real revelation of God’s love for you, or even if you do but you want more, just begin setting aside a specific time each day to praise Him. I guarantee you’ll enter into a deeper level of intimacy with Him and the rest of your day will go a whole lot better!

A New Direction (from Andrew Wommack)

A New Direction (from Andrew Wommack) 

Construction Continues at the Sanctuary

As I’m sure you’re aware, we had to pause our construction at The Sanctuary at the end of December 2015 because of finances. I actually took out a line of credit on December 22 to meet our obligations with television and salaries, but the great news is that we paid that back in less than forty-five days. Thank You, Jesus! We are back on track to do everything debt free.

My original plan was to wait until we built up a $4 million buffer before restarting construction. This was to absorb any fluctuations in income or expenses so we wouldn’t run into this problem again. But something happened that has presented me with a new opportunity.

We are so cramped for space at The Barn that we are facing forced limitations on how many people can come to our conferences. We are dealing with this by possibly having students and staff go down to our facilities in Colorado Springs and watch the meetings via live stream. This only affects our major meetings, such as Summer Family Bible Conference, the Ministers’ Conference, Healing Is Here, and Charis Business Summit.

But the more pressing issue is office space and our Phone Center. As I told you months ago, I gave up my office space at The Sanctuary, and we’ve moved as many people as possible down to our offices in Colorado Springs, which already house over 250 employees. I went to talk to one of our IT people at The Barn, and they are actually occupying a storage space on the roof for their offices.

Our Phone Center is 90 percent staffed by Charis Bible College students. This makes for wonderful prayer ministers who do a great job, but it hinders us during Charis class hours. Right now, one of our largest volumes of calls comes from Daystar viewers, beginning at 6:50 a.m. and continuing for the next hour. Our Charis students have to leave around 7:00 a.m. to make it up to Woodland Park by the start of classes at 8:00 a.m.

This drop in people available to answer calls has dramatically limited our ability to respond during this time. We are losing hundreds of calls per day. Some of them may call back later, but we don’t know that for sure.

To solve these problems, my staff proposed looking at places in Woodland Park to rent for additional space. If we had our call center nearby in Woodland Park, the students would be able to take the vast majority of these dropped calls. As we began this process, the man who heads up our construction came to me with the idea of finishing off the part of Phase II that will house our new Phone Center and additional office space. I didn’t know this was an option, but it appears that this will work.

So, we’ve come up with a new plan to finish off the second floor of Phase II on the north and east side of the building. This will allow us to have 150 people answering the phones at one time and will give us around 100 new work spaces.

The changes to accommodate this partial build-out are very minor, and the benefit is enormous. This could be completed by August 2016, and that would be just perfect to accommodate the 1,000 students expected for the new school year beginning in September.

I feel so good about this that I instructed my staff today to go ahead and pursue this plan. Of course, we need the whole building finished as quickly as possible-and I am continuing to believe for that-but this is a bite-sized piece that will provide us with some quick relief.

Over the last eighteen months, we have received an average of $791,000 per month designated for our building projects. It would require just over $1 million per month to complete this partial build-out, or an increase of about $300,000 per month over what we are receiving now. This is one-tenth of the cost of having construction on the whole building going at full throttle. I believe this is very doable and would stop the need for us having to rent additional facilities in Woodland Park.

I’m sending this letter out to the 100,000 people who receive our monthly mailings, and it will also go out to 185,000 people on our email list. We will record some television spots announcing this, reaching millions more. Altogether, this is a piece of cake for Jesus.

I’m asking you to pray about this and participate if the Lord directs you to. As I’ve said many times before, it’s not about the buildings. These buildings are just tools that enable us to minister the true Gospel to people. But they are essential for accomplishing that goal.

Jamie and I and all the people being impacted by this ministry appreciate all you have done and will be doing to get this done. I am more convinced than ever that the Lord is doing something special at Charis. Not long ago, I was able to sit in on chapel at Charis when the students received a taste of our latest musical, God with Us. The writers of all the original music for this were telling us about how people want them on Broadway and in Hollywood and can’t understand why they are living in a small town in the mountains of Colorado. But they shared how the Lord brought them here. This is just one more example of what God is putting together.

No man has done this. No man could do this. Even if I were smart enough to figure this out, there is no way I could compete with all that the secular world has to offer these people. We have millionaires and business tycoons who have fallen in love with Charis and are pouring their lives into these students. David Barton and political figures are investing time and effort into raising up people to take our nation back.

Our media department is training people to communicate the Gospel using all the tools available to us today. Our missions program and ministry track are touching lives all over the world. Our evangelism courses are making a profound impact on our students, who, in turn, are touching the people in their worlds.

Altogether, Charis is doing things I’ve never been able to do. It’s like a tank being brought into battle. Satan’s kingdom is being hurt by what the Lord is doing here. Thanks for being a part of it. We couldn’t do it without you.

Thanks in advance,

Andrew and Jamie

Have you ever asked these questions:
Does God always heal?
Does God use sickness to teach?
Is God waiting on a change in behavior before He heals?
If healing is for all, why aren’t all Christians healed when they pray?
Isn’t healing really just a natural result of positive thinking?
If you have, you’re not alone. But for most, the questions still linger. The correct answers to these and other questions will change the way you see God and your relationship with Him. They will lay the foundation for healing in your life or that of someone you love.

Come, bring family and friends. Learn the truth, then witness and experience the healing power of God. (http://www.charisbiblecollege.org/watch-charis-live)

Carlie-praysI switched from sickness to health by Charis alum Carlie Terradez
“All of my life I had been sick in some way. I hated to admit it but there was a part of me that needed to be sick.” Read Carlie’s amazing testimony of her own healing from epilepsy!
Quote: “I heard God speak to me:
“Carlie, you have held me outside of the Epilepsy. You don’t need to; I want to take it from you, if you want me to. In two weeks time you can be free from this if you choose to be. Flip the switch.””

THE SECRET PLACE
Most of the promises of God—probably more than you realize—are conditional upon abiding in His presence. You might think that’s too simple, but it really isn’t any more complicated than that. Sad to say, many Christians only visit the Lord, and only when they’re in trouble. If you’re going to be a victorious believer, you can’t meet with God sporadically or when you’re in a crisis. Let Andrew show you how to dwell in God’s presence today.
