  • Corrie ten Boom Story on Forgiving

“It was in a church in Munich that I saw him—a balding, heavyset man in a gray overcoat, a brown felt hat clutched between his hands. People were filing out of the basement room where I had just spoken, moving along the rows of wooden chairs to the door at the rear. It was 1947 and I had come from Holland to defeated Germany with the message that God forgives.
“It was the truth they needed most to hear in that bitter, bombed-out land, and I gave them my favorite mental picture. Maybe because the sea is never far from a Hollander’s mind, I liked to think that that’s where forgiven sins were thrown. ‘When we confess our sins,’ I said, ‘God casts them into the deepest ocean, gone forever. …’
“The solemn faces stared back at me, not quite daring to believe. There were never questions after a talk in Germany in 1947. People stood up in silence, in silence collected their wraps, in silence left the room.
“And that’s when I saw him, working his way forward against the others. One moment I saw the overcoat and the brown hat; the next, a blue uniform and a visored cap with its skull and crossbones. It came back with a rush: the huge room with its harsh overhead lights; the pathetic pile of dresses and shoes in the center of the floor; the shame of walking naked past this man. I could see my sister’s frail form ahead of me, ribs sharp beneath the parchment skin. Betsie, how thin you were!
[Betsie and I had been arrested for concealing Jews in our home during the Nazi occupation of Holland; this man had been a guard at Ravensbruck concentration camp where we were sent.]
“Now he was in front of me, hand thrust out: ‘A fine message, Fräulein! How good it is to know that, as you say, all our sins are at the bottom of the sea!’
“And I, who had spoken so glibly of forgiveness, fumbled in my pocketbook rather than take that hand. He would not remember me, of course—how could he remember one prisoner among those thousands of women?
“But I remembered him and the leather crop swinging from his belt. I was face-to-face with one of my captors and my blood seemed to freeze.
“ ‘You mentioned Ravensbruck in your talk,’ he was saying, ‘I was a guard there.’ No, he did not remember me.
“ ‘But since that time,’ he went on, ‘I have become a Christian. I know that God has forgiven me for the cruel things I did there, but I would like to hear it from your lips as well. Fräulein,’ again the hand came out—’will you forgive me?’
“And I stood there—I whose sins had again and again to be forgiven—and could not forgive. Betsie had died in that place—could he erase her slow terrible death simply for the asking?
“It could not have been many seconds that he stood there—hand held out—but to me it seemed hours as I wrestled with the most difficult thing I had ever had to do.
“For I had to do it—I knew that. The message that God forgives has a prior condition: that we forgive those who have injured us. ‘If you do not forgive men their trespasses,’ Jesus says, ‘neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.’
“I knew it not only as a commandment of God, but as a daily experience. Since the end of the war I had had a home in Holland for victims of Nazi brutality. Those who were able to forgive their former enemies were able also to return to the outside world and rebuild their lives, no matter what the physical scars. Those who nursed their bitterness remained invalids. It was as simple and as horrible as that.
“And still I stood there with the coldness clutching my heart. But forgiveness is not an emotion—I knew that too. Forgiveness is an act of the will, and the will can function regardless of the temperature of the heart. ‘… Help!’ I prayed silently. ‘I can lift my hand. I can do that much. You supply the feeling.’
“And so woodenly, mechanically, I thrust my hand into the one stretched out to me. And as I did, an incredible thing took place. The current started in my shoulder, raced down my arm, sprang into our joined hands. And then this healing warmth seemed to flood my whole being, bringing tears to my eyes.
“ ‘I forgive you, brother!’ I cried. ‘With all my heart!’
“For a long moment we grasped each other’s hands, the former guard and the former prisoner. I had never known God’s love so intensely, as I did then”

Charles Stanley teaching on H.A.L.T.

Beware when you are too hungry, too angry, too lonely and too Tired that is when the devil hits us.

Charles Stanley, noted pastor from Atlanta, mentions the H.A.L.T. principle in his sermons quite frequently.

It refers to four areas of our life when we are most vulnerable to the attack of our archenemy, the devil.

Hungry, Angry, Lonely and Tired are four situations in our lives where we need to be very aware that the enemy is out to use this area against us.

The strongest Biblical example of this is recorded in Matthew 4 and Luke 4. After spending forty days in the wilderness where he was under constant bombardment by the devil, the Bible says in Luke 4:2, "He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them He was hungry." The first area that the enemy hit was hunger.

If you will think what it is like to spend forty days alone, then the loneliness that Jesus must have experienced is not hard to imagine. The Bible is clear when it says that Jesus was tempted in all points, just like us, and He was without sin.

And if you will also imagine living in a wilderness experience for that long of a time, then Jesus must have been very tired. Sleeping outside with no bed or comforts of a home life would have caused this.

And I believe that if you read Matthew 4:10, where Jesus said to the devil, "Away from me Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only'", you will see the righteous anger in His voice as he rebuked Satan, and told him to leave him alone.

So it is important to see how Jesus dealt with the HALT in his life. When the Savior was vulnerable to sin, how did he handle his confrontation with the enemy?

Three different times Jesus quoted from the Bible. The most famous verse is Matthew 4:4. "It is written, Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God." Jesus had quoted a verse from Deuteronomy 8:3. He also quotes two other verses in Deuteronomy 6:16 and Deuteronomy 6:13.

One of the verses that describes the early growth of Jesus is Luke 2:52. "And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men." I believe that Jesus knew many verses from the then know Word of God. It was a custom of young Jewish children to memorize large portions of the Word of God. These were the ammunition that he used to defeat the enemy.

It has always amazed me that most churches have Bible memory programs for the children, but rarely do many adults continue with a regular Bible memory program. As a young Christian I was introduced to the Topical Memory System , which is published by the Navigator Organization. That was over forty years ago, and I can attest to many times in all those years, that those memory verses have ministered to me when I found myself in the "HALT" condition.

Prepare yourself for those future attacks of the devil. Order the Topical Memory System  today, and commit yourself to regular Bible memory for the rest of your life.

I would imagine that loneliness is amplified in the older generation. The children are grown and gone. Perhaps your spouse is not living anymore, or the marriage has failed. Jesus is the one true friend we have, when it seems that others do not care. We live in such a rat race, that we neglect widows and widowers, and many children are so involved in the rat race, that their parents do not get to spend much time with their loved ones.

I have an assignment for you. It will make your day. Pick up the phone and call your parents and/or your children and tell them you love them. Make a commitment to do that on a regular basis.

Now let us think about the "Anger" in the HALT principle. Unlike Jesus, who had "righteous anger", we usually sin with our anger. And enemy comes in like a flood. Eph 4:31,32 tells us to get rid of all anger, and replace it with compassion and forgiveness.

My anger usually leads to hoof and mouth disease. I open my mouth and stick my foot into it. Eph 4:29 is the answer to that. "Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouth, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen."

Since most of us in America seldom go hungry, I would equate that sin to lack of the intake of the Word of God. Real spiritual hunger is in epidemic proportions in our world today. Today vow to spend time reading the word of God. Jeremiah 15:16, "When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart's delight."

Being tired is a national pastime. Mom's and Dad's both working jobs, caught up in the hustle and bustle of taking the kids to soccer, dance lessons, cheerleading or little league. Too tired for relationships, too tired to spend time with the Lord, and too tired to build into other believer's lives. My article on "The Rat Race"   amplifies on this problem.

So perhaps I have alerted you today to how the enemy operates. I sincerely hope you will arm yourself with the Word of God today.

Cleansing Houses or Apartments From Demons

A sister in the Lord taught me about what to do when there is a demon in a bedroom keeping your baby or kids awake. She had been in a deliverance ministry and that was 30 yrs ago. I have shared it with 100's of people and it as always brings the peace of God in its place. I have been taught by the Holy Spirit many more things since then.

T.L. Osborn on the Power of the Blood of Jesus
Christian women resources

These are only a few of the many illustrations which Christians are experiencing as a result of building a "hedge of thorns" or "hedge of protection" around their loved ones. However, there is far more to the story than just praying a certain prayer.
The Scriptural basis for the "hedge of thorns" is found in several passages. First of all, God looks for an intercessor to make up a "hedge" of protection. (Ez.22:30). Job is an example of such a man in the O.T. (Job 1:5-12)
He prayed for God's protection over his family - including his sons and daughters whom he feared cursed God in their hearts. The result was that God "made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that He had on every side".
By building a "hedge" around an unfaithful partner, his/her "lovers" lose interest and Satan is no more able to take your partner captive "at his will". Satan must get clearance from God for whatever he does, and his actions become God's dealings in love. II Timothy 2:25-26; II Corinthians 12:7; Job 1:5-10)

Life is in Blood by Larry Ollison

I Love It When You Prosper!
 By Pastor Andre Butler
Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant
 Psalm 35:27
You may be starting to see that God would allow you to prosper, but you need to take another step and realize that God is pleased when you prosper. He enjoys it! You’re His child!
A friend began to speak that the Lord takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant over his life, substituting his name for "servant." He reported, "I said it all day and all night, and before long the light came on. God takes pleasure in my prosperity!"
If you’re having a hard time grasping that God wants you to have abundance, speak this truth over your life every day. The light will come on, and when it does, the devil had better watch out!

Amazing Grace

How to trust God ?

 written by John with the inspiration of Holy Spirit
For, God is good and His Loving Kindness endures forever. Amen ?
When you know you’re God’s beloved, and that He’s on your side (Rom 8:31), 
you’ll trust Him to win the fights of life for you!

There are 2 ways to Trust God:
A) by Faith (you believe as bible verses said)
B) by Sight (seen & tasted His miracles / goodness) eg; I experienced this, and thus it is easy to trust Him. But the bible said: "it is more blessed of those who believe but did not see"

by Faith => know you’re God’s beloved& that He’s on yr side ; Meaning :

1) Know Who is your God: God truly love you, God is on your side.
2) Know who you are in Christ: You have been made righteous. by gift not by what you did or do or will do.

Many Christians find hard to have Faith, as they are confused, because of the mixed messages they received from the pulpit.

Many Pulpit said things that are self contradicting :
a)    God love you, but then He can punish you with death & diseases
(No my Friends, death & diseases are not from God but as part of the fallen world that we live in : it is Adam’s decision to chose self knowledge of good and evil which brought us on fallen earth)
b)    God is merciful, but then He can also send you to Hell
(Hell is not for us, but for the fallen angels & demons ; & unbelievers). 

God is not willing if anyone should perish (2Pe 3:9): that is why He sent Jesus, and "For God so loved us that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him, shall not perish but have eternal life (Joh 3:16)
Eg: Your own earthly father: How can you trust him fully?
he must be : Kind, Loving, Merciful, always there to support you, Will never persecute you, nor shame you for whatever you did wrong. Right ?

My daughter Pearl, raised fully by Grace not Law: Resulting in she has Nothing to hide from me, she is so comfortable with me, that she could tell me everything, eg: even when a boy kissed her in school.

by Sight =>

We tend to remember God only in our negative circumstances, 

eg:  when we suffer / need Him.

(while clearly sufferings is not from God, but from the consequences of our own doings / sin’s consequences)

eg: steal => go to jail ; Biz Risks u decided one.

When we suffer, we immediately accused God

But when we are happy / prosperous,

we tend to forget that God gave us the blessings.

In Fact:

God is only doing the blessing business.

Devils are doing the cursing business.

One blessings that we always overlook / take for granted, is :Breathing the Air, is free:

You Have the Power 
by Dr. Larry Ollison

Proverbs 18:21 says, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit."

It is true. Death and life are in the power of the tongue. But what does this mean to us? Well, it means this. What you say is important. In fact, what you say is so important that much of the Bible, God's Word, is devoted to teaching us what to say.

In the book of James in chapter 3 the Bible compares the tongue to the rudder of a large ship. Although a ship may be large and driven by fierce winds, it is turned by a very small rudder. This is the way the tongue is. It may be a small part of your body, but what you say with your mouth can enhance or destroy your life. 

Most Christians have no idea how their words are affecting their lives. Words can either be words of faith – words that confirm the Word of God, or words of doubt – words that destroy faith. The choice is yours. Your mouth is connected to your head, not someone else's. You have no one to blame for what you say other than yourself. Think of it this way. Your life and your death are in the power of your tongue.

In Romans 10:9 the Bible says, "If you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Notice it says that you are to confess Jesus with your mouth. It doesn't say to think in your mind. It says to confess with your mouth. In other words say with your mouth that Jesus is Lord.

Jesus said in Mark 11:23, "For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that those things he says will come to pass, he will have whatever he says."

Jesus said to say to the mountain, "Be cast in the sea." He didn't say think to the mountain. He didn't say believe in your heart and that will be enough. He said to believe in your heart, and say with your mouth, and then you will see the mountain moved.

Here is a spiritual law: God is a faith God and He releases His faith in words. In the beginning God spoke and the universes were formed. In Genesis 1:3 God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. Throughout creation until now God has spoken and whatever He spoke has come to pass. Ephesians 5:1 tells us to imitate God as children imitate their parents.

All through God's Word we are reminded that what we confess with our mouths can shape the world around us. A parent has a choice when speaking to their child. They can say, "You are the clumsiest child I have ever seen." "You will never amount to anything." "You never do anything right" and so on and so on. Or, they can speak faith words. They can say, "You are a good child." "You will be an achiever." "You can do all things through Jesus."

You may be thinking, "But you don't know my child!" The Bible says that when things don't look good, we are to not go by what we see anyway, but we are to walk and talk in faith. Sometimes when it comes to teenagers, we need to stand on the scripture that says we are to call those things that be not as though they were. (Rom. 4:17 KJV.) In other words, see things as they should be. See things as God sees them. Look through the eyes of faith. Speak to your mountain in faith and it will be moved.

Think of your words as containers. When they are released from your mouth, they contain faith or they contain doubt. Remember, they are your words and you are responsible for them.

Proverbs 6:2 says we are snared by the words of our mouth. This simply means that you are responsible for your words. You have a choice. With your words you can curse and you can bless.

Speak words of faith. Speak the Word of God. Say, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Say, "Jesus is Lord and Satan is defeated." Say, "He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases." Quote the Word.

Remember Proverbs 18:21. "Death and life is in the power of the tongue."

Wilfredo De Jesús: The New Face of Social Justice

Wilfredo de Jesus
Wilfredo de Jesus (Time magzine)
Wilfredo De Jesús was there in Humboldt Park in the 1970s when riots broke out protesting police brutality and prejudice. For three, long bloody days, gangs roamed the streets rioting and looting and police shot at citizens. Eventually the National Guard was called in. The community had become a war zone. And De Jesús, on the verge of adolescence and the son of a single mom in the Hispanic community of Humboldt, got caught up in it.
On the second day of the riots, the 12-year-old De Jesús took a soda from a store and ran. Before he got too far, he stopped, confused and conflicted. He returned the soda and wondered what had compelled him to make such a choice in the midst of chaos. 
It’s a moment De Jesús, now 48 and featured on the cover of TIME magazine as a pastor and leader of the social justice movement among global Latino Christians, who call themselves “Evangélicos,” points to as a major turning point in his life.
“When you live in the inner city, it shapes you because you see the injustice and you can't just preach on Sunday and then ignore it like it doesn't happen,” he says. “You have no other choice but to jump in the middle of that fight and speak for people.
“I'm really humbled to represent the Christian Latino community,” De Jesús continues. “I now bear a responsibility for that image and what it represents for millions of Hispanics around our nation and the world, that they would see that and feel proud. I'm humbled by it, but I also understand that with revelation comes responsibility.”
“Revelation,” as De Jesús describes it, came for him when he participated in a summer youth work program pioneered by Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley. De Jesús signed up believing he would be asked to clean the streets. Instead he was assigned to an Assemblies of God church to do maintenance work for a youth day camp.
At this camp, he saw kids who were different—they weren’t in gangs like his brothers. Their friendship offered him an alternative to the welfare existence he knew. De Jesús had a spiritual experience in that church at the end of the summer that would forever change him.
"I was raised in a dysfunctional family,” he says. “My father was an alcoholic and abandoned us when I was 8 years old. Everything in life was against me: dysfunctional family, failed at third grade, couldn't read, had no father figure, surrounded by gangs and drugs. Yet God in his infinite wisdom chose my life."
De Jesús now pastors that same church, called New Life Covenant, and has seen it grow into the largest Assemblies of God church in the nation. De Jesús says it’s because he’s a local—because he grew up there and had those experiences as a child in Humboldt Park and with his family that makes him the right pastor for the church. “I think that's why the community has embraced me and said, ‘Hey he's our pastor. Even if we don't go to his church, he speaks for us.’”
New Life now has 17,000 through four church campuses and boasts more than 130 ministries reaching the most destitute—the homeless, prostitutes, drug addicts and gang members. These multi-faceted development programs offer everything from food and clothing pantries, to transitional shelters, residential recovery and job training programs, mobile soup kitchens for the homeless and shut-ins, gang and at risk youth intervention, human trafficking advocacy, world missions and humanitarian relief, after school tutoring and sports programming, mentoring, prison outreach and immigration advocacy.
"[These] ministries connect with broken people,” De Jesús says. “We're constantly trying to fish for souls.” He also points to Hope Fest, an event being held on July 27 in Chicago, and supported by a generous grant from Joyce Meyer Ministries, as another example of reaching out to the least of these. At the event, which Meyer herself will host, New Life will give more than 6,000 school bags to students from 15 different schools in the community. “Growing up as a kid of a single mom, my mom didn't have the resources,” De Jesús says. “I make it a point to make sure every kid starts with a haircut, a brand new uniform and book bag."
Throughout his ministry career, De Jesús, affectionately known by his nickname “Pastor Choco,” has kept his pulse on the local community, where he lives with his wife Elizabeth and their three children, Alexandria, Yesenia and Wilfredo, Jr.
"It's only right that where God took me out of, I would go back to,” he says. “As a matter of fact I built my home in the same community of the 70s, where my wife and three kids live. I could have built anywhere, in the suburbs or away from the city, away from the crime, but I am compelled, provoked by the Holy Spirit, to minister to 'the least of these.' There is no doubt I have this connection with the poor and less fortunate."
De Jesús’ advocacy to people in need extends past the walls of the church and into local politics. From 1998 to 2000, De Jesús held two positions, one as Assistant Pastor and the other as the Executive Assistant to the CEO of the Chicago Public Schools. From 2004 - 2010, De Jesús served as a commissioner on the Chicago Zoning Board of Appeals. When Mayor Richard M. Daley, son of the mayor whose work program De Jesús signed up for as a youth, didn’t seek re-election, De Jesús ran for the office until withdrawing a month before the election to endorse another candidate.
Over the years while holding ministry positions, De Jesús also received a bachelor’s degree in communications from Trinity University and a master’s degree in Christian ministries from North Park Theological Seminary.
De Jesús reflects the new face of the Pentecostal movement – young and ethnically diverse. He’s the vice president of social justice for the nation’s largest Hispanic Christian organization, The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, which serves 40,000 churches and close to 15 million born-again Christians.
Among his denomination, the Assemblies of God, Hispanics comprise 21.5 percent of adherents, according to the Office of the General Secretary. At a time when church attendance in America is falling rapidly, AG numbers have risen every year for 22 years—with 39 percent growth in adherents since 1990—and most of that growth has come from those under 40 and from minorities. In 2011, 40.4 percent of the AG’s constituents were minority (up from 29.4 percent in 2001). In those 10 years (2001-2011), the largest amount of growth among major race/ethnic groups took place among Hispanics.
De Jesús believes these are formidable numbers that can’t be ignored. “You have the Hispanic community, over 51 million in the United States,” he says, a number verified by a 2013 report from the Pew Research Hispanic Center. “With that you have evangelical Hispanics who are also [an] up-and-coming force to be reckoned with at every level. We're not just crazy ‘Hallelujah people.’ We're people God has chosen to govern, to lead communities and cities with conviction, unapologetically.”
The time is ripe for the Hispanic community to stand up to injustice, De Jesús believes, but not by rioting, as he experienced in his youth. “I believe what the Bible says—that we are the head and not the tail,” he says. “For 50 years in our nation we've been acting like the tail. I think the Hispanic community can rise up and speak to bodies of organizations within our city, our nation and say, ‘Wait a minute, we have convictions.’ When you talk about issues in our nation, who's fighting these issues? You've now got a lot of clergymen, Hispanics, who are trying to fight for the institution of family, marriage, etc. I think the church should lock arms with our Hispanic brothers and sisters and live out the gospel.”
Dr. George O. Wood, general superintendent of the Assemblies of God based in Springfield, Mo., believes what drives De Jesús’ success is his passion for the gospel. “I’ve had the privilege to watch God use him to touch lives in his neighborhood, in the city of Chicago, across our country and around the world,” Wood says. “But the broad scope of his work isn’t the most significant thing about him. Pastor Choco passionately loves Jesus Christ.”
In his first book Amazing Faith, De Jesús shares his life story and message: “No one is too lost, too evil, too wounded or too hopeless,” he writes. “No one is beyond the transforming power of God’s love. When we let Him, God fills our hearts with His love, strength, and purpose and we become complete.”
De Jesús recognizes these convictions stem from his childhood experience in Humboldt Park. “I think what happened to me as a youth shaped me to be a prophetic voice to society and mainly for the gospel,” he says. De Jesús has spent the past 13 years offering this hope within his local community and it has also earned him international respect. “Knowing the gospel is transformational is even more conviction in my life. That's what gets me around the world—to India, to Africa, to Haiti to help those who are poor—those things compel me to do that. What happened to me when I was young helped me to be who I am today.”,32068,2275267195001_2140138,00.html/

Smith Wigglesworth, often referred to as ‘the Apostle of Faith,’ was one of the pioneers of the Pentecostal revival that occurred a century ago.

Without human refinement and education he was able to tap into the infinite resources of God to bring divine grace to multitudes.
Thousands came to Christian faith in his meetings, hundreds were healed of serious illnesses and diseases as supernatural signs followed his ministry.
A deep intimacy with his heavenly Father and an unquestioning faith in God’s Word brought spectacular results and provided an example for all true believers of the Gospel.

May this site stir your faith and deepen your vision for the glory of God in our generation.

Did You Know?
“God, who is my Deliverer, was waiting on me in Tulsa,” Brother Copeland recalls of that life-changing incident. “But instead of heeding the call of God to head on over to where I belonged—where my deliverance was—I went the other way.”
For a while, Brother Copeland tried his own pursuits such as working at an insurance company. But he couldn’t get away from the call of God on his life. He just kept thinking, "Man, I’m not supposed to be here. I’m in the wrong spot. I’m doing the wrong thing." Every time he prayed, God would say, "I want you in Tulsa, Okla., at Oral Roberts University." And Brother Copeland, who never enjoyed school, would respond, “Oh, I can’t do that.”
Then, after attending a Holy Ghost meeting in Houston, someone approached him about being their church’s music minister. Kenneth accepted, though on the inside he kept hearing, ORU! ORU! Tulsa! ORU!
“I decided we were going to Houston,” says Kenneth. “I knew it was wrong.”
On Oct. 31, 1966, while driving on Highway 59 through Marshall, Texas, en route to begin that job, Kenneth and his family were involved in a car wreck. His young son, John, was flung into the front, breaking his arm and some ribs. Gloria’s face slammed into the car’s dashboard. Kellie, also a small child, was—thankfully—fine.
“If it hadn’t been for the grace of God, it would have killed us all,” Kenneth later said of the incident.
Sitting in a rocking chair in the hospital following the accident, Kenneth prayed in the spirit, repenting to God. He told God he was tired of running and that he’d been “a Jonah too long.” Something miraculous happened on the inside of him—and Kenneth was touched by the Spirit like never before.
The next day, Kenneth’s parents drove down to get them, since his car was totally destroyed. They took the family back to Fort Worth. “We were driving along,” Kenneth recalls, “and there’s silence in that car. I’m just sitting there praying, thanking God my family is alive.”
Suddenly, from the silence, Kenneth’s father said he had received two extra invitations to an Oral Roberts partner meeting—and asked if Kenneth and Gloria wanted to go. Kenneth asks, “Do you think I’d pass up another chance to go to Tulsa? No!”

At that meeting, Oral Roberts laid his hands on Kenneth and the vision for Kenneth Copeland Ministries was born. 


Howard Carter on the left and Lester Sumrall on the right

Howard Carter was a missionary to missionaries, a friend of Smith WigglesworthLester Sumrall and a leading speaker at international Pentecostal conferences throughout the world. He was most distinguished for his teaching on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. He was a gentle and refined man, yet rugged when needed. A careful study of his life reveals an educated man after God's own heart who carried a strong passion for Jesus and a quiet sense of humor.
Howard Carter was born in Birmingham, England in 1891. His British father married his mother a descendant of French nobility. Growing up Howard Carter had a speech impediment and suffered much embarrassment in school. Even with speech therapy he still had difficulty throughout his life pronouncing r's. Still, Howard had a passion for study and a love for art. He entered art school where he studied portraiture and life drawing. At twelve his work was displayed in the London Gallery of Art. When he was 18 years old he gained employment as a designer at Thursfields and Company in Birmingham. At twenty he was saved and attended a Church of Christ until he was baptized in the Holy Spirit. Since he would not keep silent about the experience he was asked to leave the church. While working in design he sought every opportunity to preach the Gospel that he could find. When he was 25 years old he left the design firm and entered the full time ministry pastoring a work started by the Crown Mission in Birmingham only to be interpreted by war.

Compulsory military service was introduced in Great Britain in 1916 two years after the start of World War One. Howard Carter should have been exempt from the military because he was a full time minister of religion. His application to be excused, however, was dismissed on the grounds he was not a minister of a recognized denomination. Refusing to enter the military, he was imprisoned in solitary confinement in the famous Wormwood Scrubbs prison in London some 100 miles from Birmingham. Howard Carter feared he would break under the strain of incarceration but God brought him through. In prison Howard Carter kindled his passion to study the Word of God and focused his studies on the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit. Later he would write his book, "Questions and Answers on Spiritual Gifts." Sometime in 1918, at the end of the war, Howard Carter was freed from prison and returned to his home town of Birmingham pioneering a church called the People's Hall.

Later, six Pentecostals gathered for prayer in London. A message in tongues was interpreted by a young visitor from Birmingham. That visitor was Howard Carter. The prophecy declared, "Gather my people from the North, South, East and West and build for me. They will come on horses, mules and camels and there will be heaps of money.” That same evening a businessman, convicted for not paying his tithes, gave £2,500 to Howard Carter that would launch him into a world wide apostolic ministry.

Howard Carter was well known for his love for God and had met many other ministers of the Gospel. He was one of thirteen people who signed the founding documents of the Assemblies of God in Birmingham on February 1st, 1924. Later that same year in May he would attend the first Assemblies of God conference held in London.

Howard helped many people receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit and to develop various gifts of the Spirit. Howard Carter would study and yield himself particularly to the gift of prophecy and interpretation of tongues.

The first Pentecostal Bible School in the United Kingdom was founded in the Hampstead area of London by the Pentecostal Missionary Union and later became known as the Hampstead Bible School. In 1927 Howard Carter reluctantly agreed to serve as the school's principal for a few months. He stayed for 27 years. Under his direction the school focused on training evangelists, pastors and teachers who were sent into various mission fields around the world including Europe, Asia and Africa.

One time, when Howard Carter was feeling discouraged, God gave him the words which were to become the motto of the Bible School and encourage many of its students; "Let me never lose the all important truth that to be in thy will is better than success and grant that I may ever love thyself more than thy service."

On May 24th, 1928 he received a prophetic word declaring, "Mark the day for the blessing will come and you will be astonished." One year later to the day Howard Carter was elected vice chairman of the Assemblies of God in Britain and on May 24th, 1934 was elected chairman.

In 1934 Howard Carter was invited to minister at two camp meetings in the USA. He was 43 years old. With encouragement from others and confirmation from God, this developed into a world tour of 60,000 miles. In America he would meet a 17 year old young lad named Lester Sumrall who would met him later in Australia for a round the world tour visiting many of Howard's former bible school students, focusing much of the trip in China. Many of the missionaries visited were former students. At the conclusion of the tour Howard Carter said, "We started with nothing, we had nothing [to spare], we returned with nothing, and we desire nothing but the privilege of proclaiming that our Lord God Omnipotent reigns." The chronicles of his journey is written in his book, "When Time Flew By." This book describes the end of this tour with Howard Carter suffering with malaria on a bed in Amsterdam, Holland.

The Second World War brought his travels to an end until 1946 when he visited South America. Howard Carter kept detailed statistics of his ministry and estimated that he covered 150,000 miles. In 1948 Howard Carter handed over the Hampstead Bible School to George Newsholme who turned it over to the Assemblies of God just two years later.

In 1952 at the third World Pentecostal Conference in London, the Superintendent of the Assemblies of God, U.S.A., Wesley Steelberg died unexpectedly. Howard had known Wesley and his wife Ruth for many years. At the time Howard Carter was considering a fine young lady in the London church as a potential candidate for his wife. God told him that she wasn't the one, however, and he should wait for God's choice. In 1955 the Holy Spirit put Howard and Ruth together and they married a year later. Right after the marriage they embarked on a two year world tour. From 1965 to 1969 Howard and Ruth assisted Howard's brother John at the Bible School in Kenley. During the war the building was bombed, later burned and was subsequently moved to Kenley. Ruth's health began to diminish and they moved to Springfield, Missouri. They continued to minister together until Howard's death January 22nd, 1971. Howard Carter was 80 years old. The memorial service was held in London and conducted by David Powell. His good friend Lester Sumrall was unable to attend because of a severe snowstorm that closed the airport. Echoing the sentiments of many he testified, "Howard had faith in me and launched me out on God." In a special memorial edition of Redemption Tidings dated April 15th, 1971 there were many tributes to Howard including that of Alfred Missen who described Howard Carter as a man of great personality, genius, faith and the Spirit.
