Open Door in the Congo

Dear beloved:  I have just been given an open door by the Lord to conduct a crusade in the Republic of Congo, being sponsored by a local pastors association of up to 500 pastors.  This will be a several night crusade in the open air accompanied by praise bands and many prayer warriors. This is a great open door that has been made possible because of the prayers of the faithful for this ministry. Matthew 28:19  Go unto all the nations, baptizing in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you, and lo, I will be with you always, even unto the end of the age.

Please pray that God would provide the necessary provision to go forward with this crusade, as well as the others in Kenya and Mt. Kilimanjaro.  When the Lord gives a vision, He also provides for it.  Please pray that the provision will come forward quickly.  I am thankful for all of the people reading this blog, if you are new to this blog know that God has brought you here for a purpose. Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion,  "Your God Reigns!"

Please go to my website  and look on the videos of last year's crusades in Mumias, Kenya, and Kibera-Nairobi, Kenya.  The Lord wants to bring in an even greater harvest this year.  If you would like to help contribute to this year's crusade, contact me at, or drop me a line at Gather the Outcasts Ministry, Box 92, Norton, Kansas 67654.  And pray for the windows of heaven to open up and the Lord to pour out a blessing so great I can't even hold it all.  May God bless each and every one of you as you pray  about your part in bringing in the harvest for the kingdom.  God bless you, Jim

Arrogance Has Blossomed

Dear beloved: Now more than ever before, it is time for all who call themselves followers of Christ to get their feet planted firmly upon the rock Jesus. God has been speaking to me recently to reaffirm the dreams and visions that He has given me over the past several years about the shaking that is coming to America, and to the whole world. The restructuring of the economies of the world is beginning to take place, with the meltdown of several European nations imminent, followed by a dominoe effect that will come all the way to a bank near you, then eventually to your doorstep. You will see this begin to take place within a few months, as the medicine being doled out to the countries of Europe will be too strong for them to handle, and they will capitulate back to their spendthrift ways that will make the people happy, but will lead to an even more rapid demise.

Ezekiel 7:2 "And you, son of man, thus says the Lord God to the land of Israel, an end! The end is coming on the four corners of the land. v3 "Now the end is upon you, and I shall send My anger against you; I shall judge you according to your ways, and I shall bring all your abominations upon you. v4 For My eye shall have no pity on you, nor shall I spare you, but I shall bring your ways upon you, and your abominations will be among you; then you will know that I am the Lord!" v5 "Thus says the Lord God, A disaster, unique disaster, behold it is coming! v10 Behold the day! Behold, it is coming! Your doom has gone forth; the rod has budded, arrogance has blossomed. v11 Violence has grown into a rod of wickedness. None of them shall remain, none of their multitude, none of their wealth, nor anything eminent among them. v15 The sword is outside, and the plague and the famine are within. He who is in the field will die by the sword; famine and the plague will also consume those in the city."

We know that God was faithful to His word and to His prophet Ezekiel, that what He said He would do, He did. The southern kingdom of Judah was carried off into captivity for 70 years for their rebellion and failure to turn from their stubborn and wicked ways. God has been crying out through the prophets of this land also; He has pulled out all the stops to get people to hear Him and turn from their wicked ways. The current administration is part of the beginning of God's judgment on this land. The unashamed promotion of killing of the innocents through abortion, the glorification of perversion through the sanctioning of homosexuality and homosexual "marriage", and the continued push against Israel to give into the demands of their enemies; all this and more give ample indication that arrogance has blossomed. Beloved, God wants us to know that He is the Lord. Ezekiel 7:27 " The king will mourn, the prince will be clothed with horror, and the hands of the people will tremble. According to their conduct, I shall deal with them, and by their judgments I shall judge them. and they will know that I am the Lord." Let us heed the warning and pray that God will once again show us mercy. Pray for this land and for your family that they would come to know that He is Lord. God bless you, Jim

Words of Knowledge Lead to Healings

Dear beloved: I have been teaching a series on gifts of the Holy Spirit the last 2 months at the prison, and recently we have been focused on the gifts of healing. 1 Corinthians 12:9 to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit. At a recent callout meeting at the prison, the Lord began the service by giving me several words of knowledge about physical and spiritual ailments that afflicted some of the men in the room. 1 Corinthians 12:8 For one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same spirit. I have found over the years that when the Lord gives a word of knowledge about a condition, that His intention is to give a healing also so that His power may be revealed not only in the original word but in the healing. God is so great and cares about us so much He wants to see us healed and made whole in every way. Of course, for our part we must be obedient not only in speaking out the word of knowledge, but those for whom the word is intended must be obedient in coming forth for prayer.

One of the words of knowledge was for someone who had a pinched nerve or compression fracture of a disc in his back that was causing him lots of pain. I spoke it out and one of the men came down and we laid hands on him and prayed for his healing. Last night this same man gave his testimony about how the Lord had healed him that night of a chronic back problem that dated back to 1997, when he twisted his back while lifting a heavy hot tub spa on the job where he was working. He testified that when we laid hands on him, he instantly received a healing of the pain, and it has not bothered him since that original meeting.
Often times our pride blocks healing. We are too proud to admit we are in pain, or that we need help, or even that some man may know from God our situation, even though in our inward man we know it to be the truth.

In 2 Kings 5:1, we read about a man named Naaman who was a captain of the army of the king of Aram, who was a great man and highly respected, and a valiant warrior, but he had leprosy. He had a servant girl in his house who was from Israel, and she knew about the healing powers of the Lord's prophet Elisha, who was in Israel. v9 So Naaman came with his horses and his chariots, and stood at the doorway of the house of Elisha. v10 And Elisha sent a messenger to him saying, "Go wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored to you and you shall be clean." v11 But Naaman was furious and went away and said, "Behold, I thought, he will surely come out to me, and stand and call on the name of the LOrd his God, and wave his hand over this place, and cure the leper." v12" Are not Abanah and Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? Could I not wash in them and be clean?" So he turned and went away in a rage.
So we see he was first furious at the man of God, and then went away in a rage, all signs that his pride was getting in the way of him receiving his healing. But when he got home, his servants got him straightened out and humbled him to show him how childish his actions had been. v13 Then his servants came near and spoke to him and said, " My father, had the prophet told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it?" How much more then, when he says to you, "Wash, and be clean". 14 So Naaman went down and dipped himself seven times in the Jordan, according to the word of the man of God; and his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.

Many times all we need to do is just humble ourselves before the Lord to receive the healing we are asking for. Ask the Lord today where you need cleansing, and what in you needs humbling. Naaman testified in verse 16 that the God of Israel was the only God in all the earth. Praise God He was then and still is! God bless you as you pray today, in Christ, Jim
