On September 11, 2014, I just spent about one hour praying for the healing, deliverance and salvation of my family, friends, and YOU my subscribers! My prayers consisted of binding the devil and praying in the Spirit over your lives. As I shared from my article yesterday, Is Your Heart Prepared to Meet God?,” I am on a quest to return back to the basics of my faith. For me that includes, spending more time in God’s Word, dwelling in his presence through meditation, consistent prayer, and walking in God’s power through surrendering to the Holy Spirit. I believe that if want to see change and miracles in my life, that I must activate the power of God through seeking Him with all my heart. God declares in Jeremiah 29:13, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Yesterday, I watched this life changing video (below) that got me really pumped up! The title of the video is called “The Uncommon Core, How to Get Your Family Saved.” I don’t know about you but I have some family members who need salvation and deliverance from some things be it anger, confusion, etc. Pastor Steve Cioccolanti of Discovery Ministries and creator of the video tells how he followed a specific teaching of Jesus that led to ALL his close family members being saved in one year. If you have family members who need the Lord and deliverance you’ll definitely want to watch and then implement the following steps (below) in your life. I have been a follower of Pastor Steve on youtube for some time and his messages are timely, powerful, and relevant.
Pastor Steve starts off first by saying that our families are not saved by our testimonies, debating, or having discussions about God. He says that they are saved by the word of God only. That it is the word of God that penetrates of the heart, convicts of sin, and creates the desire for salvation.
Using the scriptures in Mark 16 he tells us exactly how to get our families saved.
“He said to them (Jesus), “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”
Concentrating on the signs of those who believe, the Pastor tells us to do four things if we want to see our families and friends saved. These are:
1. Cast out demons
2. Pray in the Spirit
3. Be bold
4. Pray for the sick
In the video he goes into depth on all of these and gives lots of examples. I hope you will take the time to watch it as I believe it will change how you pray for yourself and well as your family. Please let me know what your thought of it in the comments after watching. I am very excited and believe I will have many testimonies to share.
