Family from OH drives 12 hours to get Kickstarted!
Two weeks ago, Laury and I and our good friend Garth from JGLM ministries had the privilege of Kickstarting another family who drove an RV 12 hours, all the way from Akron OH to learn how to pray for the sick. Almost every weekend for the past several months, we’ve been Kickstarting a person, a family, or a small church group who are all now seeing healing, deliverance, baptisms, and salvations, bearing much fruit for the Kingdom!
Kickstarting is the term our good friend Torben Søndergaard taught us last year, which basically represents the same method that Jesus used in the Bible to disciple His followers. First He modeled healing and showing the Kingdom, then He sent out his apostles to do the same (Matthew 10), then he sent out the seventy (Luke 10) saying, “Behold I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions and (physical and mental strength and ability) over all the power that the enemy (possesses): nothing in any way shall harm you.” Kickstarting (discipling) is nothing new here…This is the same model that our Lord (who created all things), gave to us and we are simply following Him in His example given to us. (Mark 16:15)
What were the results back then? The seventy returned with joy, saying “Lord even the demons are subject to us in Your name!” And what did Jesus say? He said “I saw Satan falling like a lightning (flash) from heaven.” When Jesus had sent out the seventy, He witnessed the first real example of what His instructions and His template & design to restore the earth would accomplish ….to dethrone Satan ( I saw Satan FALLING!), to destroy the works of the devil, and for “His Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven”! Yay God that he would entrust such a glorious work to His Sons and Daughters to pour out His spirit through us, and cover the whole earth with His Glory. Seriously, can you catch the weight of that privilege to be called Sons and Daughters and follow His example with the same results. My heart is so stirred with both excitement and awe at the same time, for His marvelous plan to unfold as we each grow in His love, His grace, and His faith!
Well, this wonderful family that drove all the way from Akron, experienced some life changing miracles as we trained them to lay hands on the sick. The video below is one of their first encounters with a case of spinal stenosis. They said their lives have been forever changed as a result and I know they will continue to take what they learned, and teach others to step out in faith and watch Jesus build His Kingdom on the streets! Jesus is King!
Please contact us anytime if you would like to be Kickstarted or discipled and watch the gifts of the Spirit flow through Jesus!
