During countless freedom sessions with visitors to The Father’s Touch Ministries healing meetings, relational breakthroughs finally occur when unholy “soul” ties with people from the past, or even emotional ties to future or ideal images, are broken and hearts are made free to fully love others in a healthy manner. Listen to this powerful message of freedom as Steve shares several keys to identifying and dealing with unholy ties. Join with the many saints who have severed the “knots” holding them back! NOTE: This is a 2 part series, plus the full freedom prayer
The qualities that the Proverbs-31 woman exemplifies can be nurtured and encouraged by the men (husband, father, brothers) in her life as they endeavor to provide the kind of environment in which she can flourish. If you are a married man, you can trade in your wife for a Proverb-31 woman if you follow the biblical lessons and keys described by Steve in this powerful call to true manhood! Single men heading for marriage are challenged to treat well the women in their lives.
Most believers have the goal of learning to give (and love!) unconditionally, but often are hindered because of an inability to receive unconditionally! Steve shares how subtle forms of pride can get in the way of receiving without strings, and that incredible joy awaits those who can receive. After all, you are the “apple of His eye” and He desires you to freely receive all He wants to give!
A Lesson From Africa! – Having just returned from an incredible tour of East Africa in which he witnessed three entire villages healed by the compassionate touch of the Father, Steve shares his rock-solid conviction that God wants to heal! The testimony fashioned by powerful moves of God will amaze and encourage you to believe that “all things are possible for him who believes!” The lessons learned from African ministry will help bring heavenly perspective to your view of your destiny as a son of God!
God heals in so many ways, that we are unable to predict how it will happen, how often, to how many people, or in what places! Using biblical and current examples, Steve shows how healing happens in spite of our limitations and lack of understanding, and that our Father wants us to learn in the process. It’s our inheritance!
Steve gives a “recipe” for peace that combines ingredients such as knowing that God wants you to have peace, believing that you can have it, and trusting God to answer prayer. God’s Word contains an old-testament example of the “peace that surpasses all understanding” promised by Paul in Phil 4:7; you may be surprised by the lesson it contains!
Too often, believers try to deal with anger after it flares up and destroys relationships, objects, and their loved ones. After pointing out that godly anger is pleasing to the Father, Steve outlines biblical solutions to getting free from unholy anger before it can gain control, and some keys to gaining an unoffendable heart as we grow in Christlikeness.
One of the most common issues found in healing ministry is unforgiveness and its relatives: bitterness and resentment. Because these attitudes of the heart are sometimes ‘buried” deeply, Steve underscores the importance of recognizing clues to these insidious strongholds and achieving lasting victory over them! Physical healing often follows quickly after acknowledgment, confession, repentance, and forgiveness from the heart. NOTE: This is a two part series.
When we receive our freedom from slavery to sin, through our adoption purchased by the blood of the Lamb, we no longer are controlled by rebellion (witchcraft!). Our freedom to obey the Lord in all things leads to more of the joy of the Lord, which in turn brings strength, and that in turn enables us to obey more freely, and so on. Steve shares keys from Scripture that help us stay in this “good rut!”
Now he can see!
After I finished preaching on “Exceptional Excitement – The Power of the Testimony” at the Sunday morning service (Feb 19) at Glory Mission Centre in Dandora (Nairobi, Kenya), I was relaxing in the office of FTAF Apostle Benson Kiunjuri, enjoying a simple lunch and some chai (tea). After a few minutes of “winding down” after this “last” ministry activity on this trip to Kenya, I found out I wasn’t actually finished.
Pastor Elihud brought to the office a friend named Richard, whose vision was so severely impaired that he had not been able to see more than 3 or 4 inches in front of his face, for over 20 years!
Apostle Kiunjuri “informed” me that I wasn’t done with ministry that day, and I whole-heartedly agreed! The compassion of Jesus welled up in all of us as we prayed for healing of Richard’s eyes. The power of that compassion improved his vision so much, that he was able to see the clock on the wall, and the hands on the clock, something he could not do when he first came into the office. He correctly identified several objects and their colors, and was able to accurately discern the number of fingers Apostle Kiunjuri held up to test his vision.
Joy filled the office and the Joyful One rejoiced with us, because His compassion has once more paved the way for changing a blind man’s life forever! Bwana asifiwe (Lord be praised)!
I was now able to finish my chai and head to dinner and the airport for the safari home, although I’m not sure I needed the plane to fly!
