We are entering such a blessed time of the year as we enter Christmas 2016. Over the weekend Nita and I went to a small city that were having their annual Christmas celebration and tree lighting ceremony. The thing that really touched us is that along with the choir singing on the steps of the courthouse for that town the whole crowd entered into singing songs about our Savior and Lord. Although it was a small town people came from all over to attend this so there was a huge crowd.
Just to be in that atmosphere and hear people sing religious carols touched our heart. Hopefully you will avail yourself to attend an event like this and share the love of the Lord among many people at this Christmas season. God bless you all this Christmas season.
Do you fear God?
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” Proverbs 9:10
The Spirit of God has been talking to my spirit about this subject for weeks. He has brought up many talking points that I am going to share with you on this interesting and challenging ministry of God’s Word.
Speaking from my own personal encounter with this subject it is often a subject that many Christians do not like to talk about because it bares their inner self. Their very thoughts and feelings about this subject can be very private.
I’m sure that we would all be amazed at how many Christians struggle with this question.
When you are asked about this question or you ask yourself this question do you get uncomfortable and like so many issues that Christians can have this is not one of their favorite subjects?
However by the very reaction to this question it is one of the questions that we all must deal with and get peace about or it will greatly hinder your walk with the Lord.
You will never be able to achieve all that the Lord has for you, your very destiny and purpose in life until this question is resolved in your life in a positive way.
To continually sweep this question under the rug will never give you peace and the Lord’s direction in your life.
From all of our past experiences with life you know that unless you deal with an issue it will never become a positive changing point in your life.
We could call this question a great soul searching issue.
Perhaps you can’t answer this question and through your life every time it has come up you keep shoving it back down so you won’t have to deal with it? We can all get in this cycle if we do not seek the truth on this and every subject that confront us.
It is very easy to skirt an issue if it gets too hot in the kitchen, amen?
Unfortunately an issue that is not resolved in your life will be a weak point in your life and the enemy will keep touching that button relentlessly to try to break you down and defeat you. The enemy will continue to throw those fiery darts at you because he has found an area of your life that is not settled by the faith of God’s Word.
I believe that I am addressing this problem even among the ministers of the gospel today.
I must say that I can greatly relate to this subject and I believe that is one of the very reasons why the Lord spoke to my heart to share some things out of my life that I believe will help you get the victory over this area of your life that you greatly need.
I came to the Lord as a young teen age boy and was born again. What a glorious moment, I will never forget it, my salvation is a precious gift of God to me. It is invaluable.
However after being saved I found myself having a fear of God in a way that is not biblical. To be perfectly honest with you I was afraid of God. This lasted from shortly after I was saved for some years after that.
If you have not experienced this problem in your life I assure you that there are many Christians that have and are currently experiencing a fear of God that is not biblical because like I was they are afraid of God.
So perhaps this teaching will help you understand what many Christians are going through and from this ministry you can relate to these people and help them get the victory over this fear of God.
So receiving this ministry will help you to help others.
Having ministered to many, many people both privately and at the altars of many churches I can tell you this being afraid of God is a huge problem in the Body of Christ worldwide. It is of epidemic proportions.
This fear of God drove me to believe that even if I had a bad thought I must have backslid and was losing my salvation. It greatly concerned me.
I did not have a knowledge of verses of teaching that I just finished with when I ministered an extensive teaching on spiritual warfare: “For though we walk after the flesh, we do not war after the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-5.
If I had a revelation of these verses I would have realized that satan is a thought dropper and a condemner and my mind was the battleground that satan played with.
My main problem was that I was so embarrassed to feel this fear of God that I never shared it with anyone which as I look back was a big mistake on my part. So I was in confusion and of course God is not the author of confusion. 1 Corinthians 14:33
Of course the more we try to hide something in our life the worst it gets, amen?
Well it has been many years ago since this happened and I have received the victory over being afraid of God many years ago but to say it was a stronghold that satan had in my life would be an understatement.
You see there is a wrong fear of God and a right fear of God and we will look into that later.
As I reflect back to those early years of my salvation I can see that there was not the degree of good biblical teaching that there is today, not by a long shot.
The Bible teaches that there are 5 ministry gifts that God has placed on this earth. Of course there are others but these are the ones that God calls men and women of God into the formal ministry with and gives them one or more of these gifts to bless the Body of Christ.
There are 2 references of Bible scriptures that I want us to look at to see these 5 ministry gifts: First there is Ephesians 4:7-16. Here the 5 gifts are listed in verse 11. The Apostle Paul starts out by saying that He (Jesus Christ) GAVE some, apostles, and some prophets, and some evangelists and some pastors and TEACHERS.
Then in 1 Corinthians 12:28 it states that God hath SET some in the Church, first apostles (what we would know as missionaries) secondarily prophets, thirdly TEACHERS, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, (this refers to the evangelist) then helps and governments (governments referring to the pastors).
Notice that it is the function of Jesus Christ to call men and women to the 5 fold ministry gifts as it states in Ephesians 4:11 it states, He GAVE. It should not be that you decided to be a minister of God nor your grandmother wanting you to be in the ministry, only the Lord can call you to be a minister of the gospel. It is not up to you or anyone you know, only the Lord.
In 1 Corinthians 12:28 it states that God hath SET. Jesus Christ GAVE and SET the ministry gifts in the church after HIS WILL not because someone just decided to be a minister of the gospel.
Unfortunately we have an abundance of men and women who stand behind the pulpit today around the world that were never GAVE nor SET by Jesus Christ as being part of the 5 fold ministry gift and all they do is bring confusion to the Body of Christ.
The reason why I brought up these 2 scriptures is to list what ministries there are to bless and teach and lead the Body of Christ through their guidance by the Holy Spirit.
In reflecting back when I was first saved compared to now I can see that the office of the teacher has greatly come forth and helped to mature and direct the Body of Christ in a powerful way.
The office of the teacher was not as evident as it is today and did not have the greater anointing as Bible teachers called of God have today.
This was one reason why I believe I was kept in spiritual darkness for so many years. The office of the teacher was not near as prevalent as now. We currently have many Bible teachers around the world that are bringing spiritual light like never before.
What did the Lord tell Daniel about the future?
“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Daniel 12:4
We often look at this verse and use it to justify the great increase of knowledge we see in the secular world, like medicine, computers, cell phones, space exploration and a host of other things.
However the more important emphasis of this scripture is on spiritual things not on secular things.
For instance another area that I have seen greatly increase over the years is the prophetic understanding of God’s Word. I have studied Bible prophecy for many years and there is an explosion of prophetic understanding of scripture like never before.
Which of course is one of the signs that we are living in the very close of the end times and the rapture of the Church is literally at the door.
Whatever you do, BE READY!!!
Be blessed this day as this is the day that the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
EVENTS HAPPENING IN OUR MINISTRY: I want to give you an update on the outreach that we are doing at Conrad Freiholtz Ministries:
On Wednesday October 19, 2016 I had a man over to our house to help me do some yard work. While I was working in the yard with him the Spirit of the Lord spoke to me to share the Lord with him and ask him if he wanted to ask Jesus in his life and be born again. Well there came a time that day that I could talk to him and I led him to the Lord. I was so excited afterwards that joy was all over me. The man I led to the Lord had tears in his eyes and kept thanking me for praying with him to receive the Lord. I told him don’t thank me, thank the Lord.
The reason why I share these salvation events with you is not to lift myself up, God is the one that is something, I am just doing my reasonable service to the Lord and fulfilling the Great Commission, Matthew 28:18-20. I want to inspire you to take every opportunity that you have to lead someone to Jesus Christ it will give you more joy that you could believe. It is one of the most satisfying things you could ever do.
On Saturday September 17, 2016 Nita and I had gone to a mall and met with a Christian friend that we often share the things of the Lord with. All 3 of us had been sharing for a while when a man came up to our friend and we found out he knew our Christian friend so now all 4 of us were talking together.
My Christian friend introduced me as a minister friend of his to this man whose name is Joe.
Needless to say Joe started asking me all kinds of Bible questions for some time. The Spirit of God talked to my spirit and told me that I needed to lead this man to the Lord. Finally I looked at Joe and told him you have asked me many questions now let me ask you a question.
I asked Joe if he had even been born again and he hesitated as he then told me he belonged to a certain religion. I advised Him that Jesus is not coming back for any religion but instead born again believers. John 3:3
Nita talked to him and then he told Nita he wanted for me to pray with him to ask Jesus in his heart and be born again which Joe did and WE WERE THRILLED.
After we led Joe to the Lord he kept thanking us and I told him don’t thank us thank Jesus Christ for coming in your heart. Then we found out that this man was 91 years old.
The older a person is the harder it can be for them to come to Jesus Christ which is a fact. So we know that the Precious Holy Spirit moved upon his heart.
Nita and I lead people to Jesus Christ as we minister in the church but that is not enough. We pray that God will lead people to us outside of church so we can lead them to the Lord and He absolutely sends them to us.
The Great Commission burns in Nita and myself that tells us to lead people to Jesus Christ always. Matthew 28:19-20.
Nita and I get no greater joy than leading people to Jesus Christ in the church and out in the world where the sinners are on the highways and byways of life. That is our reasonable service as it is to all of us.
I want to encourage you ministers, the 5 fold ministry gifts, Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher to lead people to Jesus Christ in your church, have altar calls after every service and also as you go out into the world every day.
Of course that goes for everyone whether you are a minster or not, we are all called to lead people to Jesus Christ to fulfill the Great Commission. Amen? We are all called to be ambassadors for Christ. Please see verses in 2 Corinthians 5:18-20
Then I wanted to let you know that 3 other ministries contacted Nita and I on the world web during the week of 9/12 -9/16/2016 consisting of 2 ministries from Africa and 1 from Myanmar formerly known as Burma as of 9-19-2016. That makes 16 ministries that have contacted us from different parts of the world. They have found our website and are receiving our ministry of the Word of God.
So we thank the Lord once again for spreading the ministry of His Word to bless people around the world.
Nita and I are humbled by all of this and just want to be used of the Lord to spread His Word and REVIVAL around the world.
We are also grateful for the individuals from around the world that have contacted Nita and me through our website address and they have asked for prayer and questions and guidance in their lives. Nita and I pray over every prayer request we receive and count it a privilege to do so.
So we also encourage you individuals to contact us with your prayer requests and any questions you might have.
Praise you Lord we give Him all the honor and glory.
We are involved in our ministry on an international level and also will be continuing to minister at churches as we are led to go to these churches as well as going to churches in the United States.
On Tuesday October 27, 2015 the Spirit of God gave me a dream about a very large amount of people that I was ministering to. It seemed they were from different parts of the world. As I ministered to them I told them that WORLD WIDE REVIVAL was coming and that it would touch everyone on the face of the earth.
Every time I would say something to this huge crowd of people there would come a shout of excitement from them. But as I looked over to my right there was a man who I got eye contact with and I said this to him as we looked at each other. I told that man, whoever he was, that it was even going to affect him even though he would try to resist it.
And then I woke up.
Nita and I knew then and now that it was a dream from the Spirit of God and that He had called Nita and me to be part of this END TIME WORLD WIDE REVIVAL.
Since then I have ministered on revival several times in meetings and conversations I have had with other churches around the world.
JESUS SAID, “SAY NOT YE, THERE ARE FOUR MONTHS, AND THEM COMETH HARVEST? BEHOLD, I SAY UNTO YOU, LIFT UP YOUR EYES, AND LOOK ON THE FIELDS; FOR THEY ARE WHITE ALREADY TO HARVEST.” JOHN 4:35
Mankind has a tendency to push revival back to sometime in the future.
DO YOU HEAR THE WORD OF JESUS TODAY? SAY YE NOT, IN OTHER WORDS DON’T SAY THERE ARE FOUR MONTHS AND THEN IT IS TIME TO HARVEST, THE WORLD IS READY FOR REVIVAL NOW, NOW, NOW.
REVIVAL, REVIVAL, REVIVAL. (NOW, NOW, NOW).
“AS GOD’S PARTNERS, WE BEG YOU NOT TO ACCEPT THIS MARVELOUS GIFT OF GOD’S KINDNESS AND THEN IGNORE IT. FOR GOD SAYS, AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME, I HEARD YOU. ON THE DAY OF SALVATION I HELPED YOU.” 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, NEW LIVING TRANSLATION. INDEED THE “RIGHT TIME” IS NOW. TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.”
We have done 2 Skype ministries in the Middle East and saw a great move of the Spirit in the church. At the end of the service we also gave an altar call.
If you have just came to this ministry website today or have been visiting it on a more regular basis and the Spirit of the Lord has talked to your heart about going into intercessory prayer for Nita and myself and this ministry and giving financially even on a monthly basis we just ask that you will be obedient to what the Lord has spoken for you to do.
I believe there are some of you that have been touched by the Spirit of God by the work and vision that Nita and I have been called to and you want to help us and we do need your help spiritually and financially.
“If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.” Isaiah 1:19
We thank you.
We are spreading the Word of God around the world as the Holy Spirit leads us to new areas in an ever increasing amount.

If you have come to this ministry website today and have never asked Jesus Christ to come into your life and be born again, you are not here by accident, the Spirit of the Living God drew you here.
If you do not have the assurance of where you would spend eternity if you died right now please go to the top of this website and it will have a tab for “SALVATION.” In that tab will be what is required by God to be right with Him. When you pray that prayer and accept the Lord please send us a g mail to our website at: email@example.com and let us know that you accepted the Lord as your Savior and Lord and were born again. We want to rejoice with you and pray for you. Thank you (Please see John 3:3 and Romans 10:9-10).
Surely you know people who are going through hell and high water with real battles in their life both Christians and those that are not born again Christians. The Word of God that is presented each week will help turn their situation around if they do the Word of God and instead of the anguish and tears will bring a smile and victory to their life, isn’t that worth you sharing this website with others?
This includes the ones that not able to go to church because of disabilities and sickness or for one reason or another can’t attend church. Can you imagine how this Word of God would bless and comfort them? Please share this website with these folks also.
