Visiting India (Oct/Nov 2011)
At the first place visited in a village, had to walk some on a torturous path.
Irene says, ‘Oh this is a mistake.’ Arrived at small house there, the step too high, neighbour brought a little stool. About 25 people. Pastor says this is their only opportunity because you have come. You should have seen the 20 or so filled with the Holy Ghost, including 8 children. They spoke and spoke in tongues, the Glory of heaven was there. I then understood the pastor was telling the people about 15 years ago when I prayed for his mother with a cancerous lump in her breast that she was instantly healed. The cancer never returned. God’s ways are wonderful and mysterious. He then told the people I would lay hands on the sick. A miracle word of knowledge, kidneys. Irene tells the pastor the same moment is standing there telling him she has kidney trouble. Took a women home with us and she said my stomach pain is gone. A political contender for the election, high caste, well dressed came at the end. He asked to be blessed, called Irene, swami. This means he recognizes the supernatural in the much speaking of tongues that went over the speakers to the people in that place. He, not Christian, recognized the power of our God. When most church people in Australia tend to neglect, disbelieve or discount it. Manager of this restaurant is a relative of a top AOG pastor for whom we often ministered. He is opening a reading room and wants all my books to place there.
Dear ones in Christ
Praise the Lord for His grace and wonders.
I ordained a Church of South India man years ago. He is ministering to 3,000 now. His people get into the Holy Ghost.
Students of a Bible School finished the week with the last day seeing numbers tripled, to include quite a few more Charismatic incl. Pentecostal believers who were so keen – not being in the traditional churches. We all got into the Holy Ghost in a power filled way. After all, BBE translation of Acts 2:4 is: ‘They were all filled with the Holy Ghost who gave them power (dunamis) to speak in other languages’. Power is based in speaking with other tongues. Then we can have the 9 gifts of the Spirit manifested after that but the base is Acts 2:4; 1:4; 1:8. The disciples were filled again with the Holy Ghost. Acts 3:11 ‘Times (plural) are to come from the presence of the Lord’, this being said in relation to Acts 2:4 and speaking in tongues. Then Stephen was ‘full of faith and of the Holy Ghost’ as were they all. To be filled with the Holy Ghost always involves prayer in other tongues – being supernatural and indeed, it is the Holy Ghost Himself whom we dare not repel nor neglect.
One male, said I prophesied over him about ten years ago in the Bible School. Said he would be a preacher and gave warning. He did not believe he would be but he now is and the warning was necessary. He asked for prayer as did others. Found the Spirit of prophecy just kept one bringing forth personal prophecies to each one who knelt before me. It flowed and was most appropriate and blessed.
Sunday morning, at a lady’s church. It was amazing. About 14 church members received Acts 2:4 as she told me the church needed the Holy Ghost. There were as well, seven University female students. It was a marvel to see them. The old time Pentecostal power (not fire, but power) was there in a way a little violent, like the violent wind on the Day of Pentecost but no wind of course. For one hour the seven were like loudly chattering birds, eyes closed, oblivious of other people, lost in the Holy Ghost, a couple slain by the Holy Ghost and not by me as I will not even attempt to slay anyone. They instead get the Holy Ghost and speak in other tongues. The Pastor, an old time Pentecostal, whose son runs a church in Chennai and is on TV, said neither she nor her church had seen the like. I have in a measure in years past but never quite in the way it happened.
An old Pastor has been organizing and attending my meetings for maybe twelve years. He never misses when I am around and takes notes – humbly. He has loved it so. It has taken him all those years to have the Lord change his perspective of the New Testament and the things of the Holy Ghost. For two years now he has progressed and changed amazingly. He was speaker at a Pastors’ meeting, on the new creation and the Holy Ghost. >
His son calls me his mentor. He hangs around me, as he tells his Pastor friends, to get what I have, this being the revelation and knowledge of the Scriptures, particularly re the epistles and of the Holy Ghost. This is the Lord’s doing, absolutely. His grace condescends to do His will by the Spirit in this cracked earthen vessel despite it never being 100% engrossing on my part. That is grace.
For fourteen years he has run part Bible Schools daily, and it is only for those who work and come before or after. They are not sponsored by anyone and pay a minimum amount. He went to a Charismatic Bible School for 2 years in Scotland, and has a Pentecostal background. However, he has avidly listened to me, translated for me, translated four of my books, read all of my English ones, absorbed them and listened intently to all the DVDs we have done of all of the Pastors’ conferences and meetings he organizes, over the past 14 years, with my teaching in his school for short periods every time we go to India.
It appears 1,000 have gone through and that 300 are in the ministry. There would be more if there were support. He has sent the 300 out with encouragement and words of: ‘You trust the Lord for support’. There is no organization or denomination behind him or them, certainly not me as we ourselves just go.
Pastors say this apostolic ministry should have prayer support with groups of people praying for my welfare. We taught the students “How to minister the Spirit”.
There was a final meeting with students and people for prophesy. Around thirty received. Over only one was there mention of persecution. I was told latter he was having persecution.
One of the students, all obeying the Word of my preaching and teaching, did evangelism in a hospital with another belief. He laid hands on a child with distended stomach who had not passed urine for two days. The child then passed two pints. Doctor and visitors where amazed. Some women offered him money to give to his God.
Had a pastor’s conference, with those who did not know me and had been doubtful. Doubt turned to joy. One old pastor had read my book printed in 1995.
We went to a charismatic church building that was full, 220 pastors and others. They wholeheartedly accepted the Word of Christ. The host pastor said thank you a few times for bringing Rev. Irene. Always they all get full of the Holy Ghost overwhelmingly.
At another conference, the final one, it was mighty.
The team of pastors arranging these things when speaking of the ministry said, in joy and amazement we have never heard anything like it.
Of course we pay for all these things.
Have printed 2000 copies each of Tamil ‘Truth, Grace And Power’; of English ‘Truth, Grace And Power’, ‘The Holy Spirit Came’ and ‘Israel, The Jews And The Millennium’.
Peter is doing DVDs and we are printing ‘Truth, Grace And Power’ in Tamil and ‘Israel, The Jews And The Millennium’ and ‘Truth, Grace And Power’ – dynamite – in English. A dream from the Lord to Peter encouraged me to print what we laboriously did and have now edited finally. I yesterday remembered I had visions a few years back where I was blowing a golden trumpet. Now I see the association with Peter’s of the Lord Himself blowing a gold trumpet, He with three heads to it. So what we have written, we have written, believing it all to be Truth, by the Spirit.
