Baptism of the Holy Spirit (3SH)

Christians everywhere need the infilling of the Holy Spirit to be able to walk the pathway that God has called us to. We need the gift that was given to Believers on the day of Pentecost in the Upper Room when the cloven tongues of fire fell on the Disciples and began to speak in other languages as the Holy Spirit gave evidence of.

Healing

Dear Pastor

To refresh your memory; I called you looking for a prayer circle to pray for my brother-in law, and that it had been pressed upon me from the Holy Spirit to call you; He has kidney cancer and days before I called you he was rushed to the hospital after a seizure and was diagnosed with a large frontal tumor and three smaller ones to the back…. you led us in prayer the night before his surgery and asked that the tumors be dissolved ( turned to dove_firemush, were your exact words), and that he be delivered from the tormentors! And that is exactly what they found when they opened him up to remove the large one!!!!!!!!!!! They were in amazement of how the tumor was eating itself and all they found was mush!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now Pastor…….I give all Praise and Glory first to Our Heavenly Father and His Son our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to The Holy Spirit……but I needed you that night for a reason, though I was looking for a prayer circle the size of the Carolinas, I learned that was not necessary….two or more in the name Jesus! You see, I felt God was not hearing me….you asked if I had prayed for Donald, and I said yes, till my head hurt! Well it wasn’t until I listened to your blogtalk hour on forgiveness a few days ago and it hit me like a ton of bricks…………God was not listening to me, He hid His face from me…WHY, because I was not forgiving someone! My aunt had died days before Donalds’ seizure and she had been in hosp for weeks and no one would let me talk to her because she was so ill ( favorite aunt) and she passed. I was so angry at my cousin for keeping me from talking to her, that i swore I’d never forgive her….I was just full of anger! and here I was praying for Donald…………well, no wonder the Holy Spirit had me call you……lol…..He knew I could not get thru!!!!!!!! Well I ran to repentance on that one and will never in my life forget that lesson on forgiveness…..thank you from the bottom of my heart!

God has blessed your ministry!

Harvey

I had a vision from God today as I was walking to the store not really thinking of much at all. All of a sudden, I felt like I was taken from my body and placed in a cave with my mother and two younger siblings where it was dark, so I lit a fire and once I did there were visonaryall these demons around us! They were scared so I said okay let’s pray, after that it was almost like a shield was around us and they the demons couldn’t touch us so I said let’s go, they can’t touch us! As we exited the cave I was singing praises to God and was put back into my body still singing to God.

New Week

Hi All,

Just wanted to drop every one a note and let everyone know that church attendance doubled this week! I am looking forward to the day when we can have outside speakers come and sing and speak. What a day that will be…. Keep praying for members, we still need members to help pay the rent and light bills. If anyone would like to donate, http://www.endtimeministrieschurch.com/donation/

My book publisher is editing my newest book which will be a combination of my first and second book rewritten to be out next month. It will be called the Watchers.  This will give me three new books in print, plus audio books.

I am still doing Blog Talk Radio on Thursday nights and have had three thousand listeners. Of course I am still speaking on radio shows across the country.

Our deliverance ministry has grown by leaps and bounds. I am going to include a short testimony of our newest person we have helped.  http://www.deliveranceministriesgroup.com/about/

Here: A testimony –  Dissociative Identity Disorder

I was born in Russia, abused by mother at as a young child until puberty. I was later raped and the father of my first child murdered the child. I have had an ongoing problem with masturbation having overcome drugs. I have been diagnosed with Multiple personality disorder or Dissociative identity disorder. DID is a mental disorder which I had characterized by three distinct identities or personality states (alters) that alternately would take control of myself.  Skyler, Shyaine, Nika were the names of the demons which would take control of me at their will. This was a demonic oppression which manifested itself through dissociation.

Since I severed ties from unhealthy relationships and have gotten more in tune with the holy spirit, I contacted End Times Deliverance Ministry ( Dr. CK Quarterman) and they identified the roots of my hindrances in my walk with Christ. I was delivered from dissociation brought upon me from the abuse I endured as a child.

The Lord has recently revealed to me that it is not my responsibility to carry other people’s burdens, which has always been a major stumbling block for me. I as all humans have weaknesses, but I am trusting in Him to overcome them so I can be a beacon of light to those walking in darkness. I have been the complete antithesis of this, in more ways than one.

I can’t wait to see what is in store for me.

Note: DID is one of the most controversial psychiatric disorders with no clear consensus regarding its diagnosis or treatment, however I believe them to be demons and the above case shows such demons at work. Dissociative disorders including DID are attributed to demons that come in because of trauma.

You might notice the picture I attached. I received my doctorate this last month form Cathedral Bible College. Dr. Miller conferred it at the end of their yearly ministerial convention.  I also got to teach two classes while I was at the College for the week.

We have started counseling at our new church and are beginning to see results. We even had a woman come to Christ this week through counseling.

Please continue to pray for Beth’s health,

Dr. CK (Kim)

Update

Please ask the Lord to help us keep the church going…. we picked up a few new members this week, however only about one in three will give any support. We have rent, electric, and insurance to pay. Not much compared to most churches, but a lot, if I have to take it all on by myself. My income comes from retirement, not the books I have written. Whatever the books make I have been putting into the church. I really want to see this church make it, pastoring and helping people is what I have spent my whole life preparing to do. The time is now.The time is short before America implodes and I want to get the message of Christ’s soon return out. What do the Day’s of Noah look like? I want to tell people what’s going on with the UFO phenomenon and how it relates to Genesis with Christ’s statement of the “Day’s of Noah”. People need to be made aware of the war which is raging around us! The world is in a slumber, asleep with the dream of a better tomorrow. While dark forces are arrayed against us and many today write about the approaching juggernaut of the Apocalypse, and well they should! Few however, know or understand what has brought us to this Apocalypse, this apex of human history. The end of the world as we know it is about to take place. A storm is gathering, so terrible as to cause men’s hearts to fail them for fear; we must not approach this coming Apocalypse, unaware and unarmed.If you can help, please use this link. http://www.endtimeministrieschurch.com/donation/

Faith Healing

Yes, I believe in God confirming His Word. No, I don’t believe in what passes as faith healing today.

I want you to watch this video about faith healing. It shows all of my concerns about it, and why I have purposed to be different. It is fairly long, but worth the show for sure. I don’t recommend many videos of other people, but this video exposes the falsehood of most faith healing without ragging on peoples belief. It is very well done.

This isn’t what I in vision God doing at all. I won’t be a part of this kind of stuff. I in vision God healing people just sitting in their seats without anyone having to put a hand on then, and it lasting. I want to do it right, if it can’t be done right I don’t want to do it at all. This is also the reason I am not taking a salary, I am not going to bring man’s greed into and disrepute upon something God alone can do. Mark the 16th Chapter say’s they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. I will believe this, if I never see it. Mark also say’s God worked with them confirming His word with signs following. We have already experienced people being healed while I speak, this is what I truly desire. God moving and doing His will.

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

We all believe and practice this and so should we practice the rest of the verses. -Author

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen“. (Mark 16:15-20 )

WARNING – What passes as faith healing today – WE ARE NOT LIKE THIS. This is an exposure of some of the criminals in the faith healing movement. We believe in prayer, but not dog and pony shows.

ELDERS

What are Biblical Elders

What was Biblically intended as a “presbyter?” I use this term because the word did not originally mean “priest.” Ironically, the English word “priest” is derived from an Anglicization of “presbyteros.”

The word “presbyteros” means “old man,” which is why we refer to the gradual loss of eyesight as “presbyopia.” Thus, the term means “elder.” By emphasizing the sacerdotal nature of “sacraments,” it was a back-door in which to re-introduce the notion of a priesthood where there was none before.

The evidence of this is part of the language of the New Testament itself. The title “elder” is “presbyteros.” The term for the priests of the Jews is “hieros,” “priest.” This term is used throughout the gospels for them, and it is used by Paul to refer to Jesus as our “high priest” and where we believers ourselves are referred to as “priests and kings” (such as Rev. 5:10). The term “presbyteros,” “elder,” is applied for the office which was later taken by priests, as well as the 24 “elders” in Revelations. It is this traditional melding of two separate concepts.

This is also true of the Vulgate, which borrows the Greek word “presbyteros” (for example Titus 1:5), “elder,” and for the priests of the Jews and pagans it calls them “sacerdos,” “priest.” Same for Jesus and we ourselves in the same contexts. This shows that the meaning of the word “presbyteros” referred to an office that had less to do with a priestly duty.

There is little of a ritual nature which we can definitively ascribe to the early church. The agape feast (the original communion), reading of the scriptures, exhortation of one another and the meeting together of the saints deal with most of the sort of things the Church did together, while there were some special things like almsgiving and help for those in need. It is known that many within the Church were attached to the Temple in Jerusalem and to the synagogues outside that city. It is my guess that after the fall of Jerusalem and the end of the temple, together with the casting out of Christians from the synagogues created the void that enabled the elders to take up a sacerdotal role within the Church that they did not initially have.
