Little did he know that within 30 minutes the Lord would turn his world upside down and leave him telling the listeners, he agreed that "this is the genuine thing” and also admitting that he was ‘a little scared’ when he witnessed the awesome Power of Our Living God Jesus Christ.
It all began when the Five Fold Ministry Ireland recently returned from a successful trip to America, and were instructed by God to go to Sligo in the West of Ireland and to ‘take the city’ for Him.
The ministry swung into action and the first step was to coordinate massive intercessory prayer for the sad, the sick, the lost and the lonely; for a mighty harvest for the Kingdom of God and for the protection, health and safety of the small team.
Our faithful Five Fold key intercessors, combined with many thousands of prayer warriors and hundreds of churches in USA and other continents stepped in to the gap for the people of Sligo.
After that, the venue was secured, the Lord directing us to the ideal venue at a very reasonable cost. The Miracle Healing outreach is on Sunday, September 12th 2004 in the TOWER HOTEL Sligo, Ireland at 7pm. (local time).
Having obtained all necessary permissions, the team, (including Paul, the Evangelist) hand-made seventy-seven large, outdoor billboards on which printers printed the image and Name of Jesus on, and blitzed the city. The billboards were backed up by thousands of window posters displayed in shop windows throughout the county and neighbouring counties, all erected and posted by our small team of volunteers. Every member of the team participated including Paul.
None of the publicity materials, indoor or out carries the name of the evangelist, only the Name of Jesus Christ. We believe every location where His Name is lifted up secures that area for the Kingdom of Heaven.
In addition requests for prayer support and notices promoting the God-ordained event were posted on sites, boards and forums world-wide.
Six weeks before the date, Paul prophesized, “We have reason to believe that this venue will be PACKED OUT, that there will be an outpouring of God's Holy Spirit upon the crowds, that there will be MIRACLES and HEALINGS at this very meeting and we believe that the Lord will ‘turn this city upside down’”.
As dramatic events unfold, all indications are that this will indeed be a reality. Paul and Harry were invited on to the regional radio station Mid-West Radio that simultaneously broadcasts with North-West Radio to cover a substantial area of the West of Ireland. The stations represent two out of the top three regional stations outside Dublin and Cork. They had a surprise for Paul when they announced that they had sick people who wanted prayer “on-air”.
Paul had repeatedly stressed that there is only one healer that the praise and the glory must go to Jesus. However he did not hesitate to accept the invitation. After he had led the lady in the repentance prayer and explained the significance of that, Paul prayed over the sick lady on-air.
She received, in her own words, "a miracle healing" and described the ‘heat’ that she could feel throughout her body. Another lady rang in testifying that she could now go up and down stairs with no difficulty whereas before, she could not! She had said the same repentance prayer when Paul was praying over the other listener.
The station has been deluged with phone calls and emails and has appealed for people to write instead as all their lines were blocked for hours. Tommy Marren, host of the "Golden Connaught Show" then kindly invited Paul and Harry back as the exclusive guests of a TWO HOUR SPECIAL on prime time Fri 10th September '04, from 0900 hrs until 1100 hrs GMT (Irish time!).
They have also invited ten very sick people out of the crowds that swamped the station that morning, to come to the station where Paul will pray over them and ask God to heal them.
You have the opportunity to join in, in prayer support and also praise to the Lord for the tens of thousands who will hear Isaiah 53 and exactly what Jesus did for them. The listeners will be led in the repentance prayer and invited to accept Jesus into their hearts and their lives as their personal Lord and Saviour, live ‘on-air’, making this a massive outreach in it’s own right, two days before the event. YOU have the chance to witness the Mercy and Power of Our living God Jesus Christ NEXT FRIDAY!
Thank you all for your prayers. They are such a vital part of this crusade to reach the lost. I look forward to sending you an exciting praise report to His Sligo outreach soon.
Please keep us all in prayer as we go back to the front-line.
Praying God’s blessings on you all, your families and ministries.
Your co-worker in Christ,
The Next outreach!
Just back from our U.S.A. trip and our Living God Jesus Christ has instructed us where to go next.
SLIGO in the West of Ireland.
September 12th 2004 in the TOWER HOTEL at 7pm.
This time the God-ordained venue is not a church building but a modern, city center hotel. We have reason to believe that this venue will be PACKED OUT, that there will be an outpouring of God's Holy Spirit upon the crowds,that there will be MIRACLES and HEALINGS at this very meeting and we believe that the Lord will ‘turn this city upside down’.
PLEASE COME EARLY. Hotel fire and safety regulations will restrict numbers allowed in. We may start early if maximum room capacity is achieved earlier in the day.
To any Christian Church or any individual wishing to help promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ by helping us, whether it's distributing posters or as ushers, we extend our usual warm welcome.
We would also like to thank the traders of Sligo, who were friendly, helpful and welcoming when we asked them to display the image of Jesus and details of the meeting on their premises. We believe that the Name of Jesus will be a blessing to each business where it is displayed and to the individuals therein. Thank you also to Sligo County Council, MID-WEST RADIO, and the wonderful staff and management at the TOWER HOTEL.
