Starting to Move Supernaturally
Starting in 2005, my wife and I began a deeper walk into the realm of the supernatural ways of God in both our personal life and ministry. Over this period, many supernatural encounters with God showed us how little we understood His ways and how much we were both desperate to know Him more fully. After much prayer, I believed that God wanted us to establish a church in the Los Angeles area with four key values:
I believe that the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit are intended to be normal in the believer's life.
Signal Hill, in the Greater Long Beach Area
Early in February, 2006, I was driving through Long Beach - near Signal Hill - and God spoke to me. It was a very strong impression. Over the next several weeks, I continued to get this impression from God.
Lighting Bolt Hits the Church
On Sunday morning (July 23, 2006) I was saying good-bye to my home church, Anaheim Free Methodist Church (AFMC). As I finished speaking a bolt of lighting hit the church. The lights flickered and an electrical buzz went through the sound system and many in the church jumped with a noise of fear, surprise and wonderment. I believe God was speaking in that moment.
I did a quick study of lightning in the Bible before I went into the second service. God spoke many times through lightning. Lightning came on Jesus at the baptism of Jesus and this was a key transition moment in his life as he entered ministry. After the service, I heard that the night prior to the Sunday morning service, Mike Toguchi, a staff at the church, prayed: “Lord, speak to us in thunder and lightings.” Others who witnessed this event saw a clear confirmation and direction from the Lord.
Light & Life Christian Fellowship - North, Long Beach
Larry Walkemeyer, a long time friend and pastor of the Light & Life Christian Fellowship – North, Long Beach, California (LLCF) , planted six churches in the last five years and has a deep heart to plant more churches in the Greater Long Beach area. So, we decided to come under the leadership of the LLCF in September, 2006.
We asked these key questions:
We decided to set no limits on the Holy Spirit and to see where He will take us. We believe that it is possible to confront our doubts and unbelief and find our true identity and birthright in God and experience his divine promises. “Your Kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10) is his promise to bring heaven to earth.
Core Team Develops
In September, 2006, we gathered a team from 10 to 15 people to grow in prayer, how to hear God, and how to move in the Holy Spirit. After months of incredible growth in the Lord, we started our “pre-celebration” services on Saturday night at LLCF.
God Answers to our prayers
Beginning in September, 2006, our church team have seen people miraculously healed and transformed. We are discovering the answers to our questions we asked two years ago. Over the last two years, we have seen hundreds of people healed of various physical, spiritual, generational and emotional problems. God has healed people with headaches, cancer, back injuries, knees problems and people who have been in years of spiritual darkness.
God is also releasing more personal prophetic words as we pray for others. People are growing in their discernment to know how to move naturally in the supernatural. We have gone on numerous prayer walks/prophetic evangelism events into Signal Hill and Long Beach and have seen many touched by God. We have invited other churches to join us in these outreaches.
The Next Chapter is being written in Signal Hill
