In The Prisons of Our Souls

As I ended my daily fellowship with God early this morning around 4:40 a.m., the Lord spoke to me from Acts 16:24 which states…. “Having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks”, and I waited for the Lord to tell me what He wanted me to know from these words.

He spoke about people in bonds in the prisons of their souls, but He, being the Lord God-All powerful and Almighty shall break the chains and loose their bonds. He shall set them free and they shall be set free indeed in Jesus.

However, He was talking to me about a certain group of people that I was praying for in particular.

But as a kind, loving, merciful God, it is His will for all men not to be bound or perish.

As I continued to listen to to Him the song Amazing Grace came into my heart and I began to sing and remember how he saved me and set me free from the prison of my soul.

I was so very thankful and grateful to Him for his mighty power and grace. It is by His grace, and the working of His Holy Spirit’s power that we can be saved by His son Jesus Christ.

Jesus paid the the awesome price for the sins of the whole world! It then came to my mind of the young souls that are in prison where God sends me to minister to every week, and how they are bound.

Even if they are bound physically in the body, they can be freed in their souls, and gladly accept the freedom that only Jesus can give. They then become free indeed!!! Hallelujah to His Holy Name! Are you in the prison of your soul?

I get unspeakable joy when I see the workings of God’s mighty hands in those kids, and I give glory to God for His mighty acts upon the children of men.

I see the healing power taking effect, I see how eagerly they cry out His name to save them and how the tears flow. I see how some of them are set free of demon spirits, and so many wonderful moves of God’s spirit for them. When my partner Barbara Brown and I get there, we always ask for the worst units. The officers always say “we are so glad you are here! We need you all over there!” Barbara and I know that without Jesus, we can’t do anything, but unto him who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that worketh in us(Ephesians 3:20).

I am confident in knowing that God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man that He should repent…(Numbers 23:19). His word is spirit and it is life, and he proves that to us as we believe and live it.

God said to me one day, “Let my word have evidence in your life”‘ and I wondered how and what he meant for it to be. He began to show me by performing miracles in my life and giving tangible evidence of them all.

Each day as I live, He proves to me that His word is true because of life.

You see, I died on the operating table November 23, 1990 at Memorial Hospital while four heart specialists were performing an angioplasty to clear out my main artery.

While operating, a blood clot formed in my heart and then ruptured blocking everything. The doctors said we cant explain it, we can’t understand!”. They wrote it up in in the medical journal, and included pictures.

That was one of several things that our Gracious God has done for me through the power of His word because he gave me John 11:25-26, “I am the ressurection and the life, he who believeth in my though he may die, yet shall he live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die”.

Do you believe this? Glory be to God! I did and still do. All Glory to God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, Amen.!
