The Spirit of the Lord spoke to my heart about teaching on the spiritual weapon that you can use in your spiritual warfare and that is the awesome power of PRAISE AND WORSHIP.
I know I told you last week that I would continue with the armor of God this week but I must follow the flow of the Spirit of God and I will continue where I left off with the armor of God next week.
I sense in my spirit that this ministry on the spiritual weapon of praise and worship against demonic attacks will minister very strongly to many people that will be on this website today.
So here I go:
The whole congregation was actively worshipping God with hands and voices raised all across that congregation and the presence, love and power of God came across that congregation like the waves of a sea. Talk about being in one place and one accord, Acts 2:1 this worship service went on for some time and I am convinced that no one cared about the time, it was awesome.
Just about the time that you may have thought it was going to slow down another wave of praise and worship went forth and stirred that congregation in a big way. It was a thing like you dream about, a blessing from above that no amount of money can buy, it was a great spiritual blessing from the Holy Spirit that was allowed to have His free will in that congregation.
I know that churches tend to come in with a list of 4 songs to sing and they get through that because it is all planned out but we all need to be open to the flow of the Holy Spirit. You may only sing one song in the whole praise and worship service but when the Spirit of God is moving that will be the most powerful song you could ever sing.
When you allow the Spirit of the Living God to move in a church service and you are not ashamed or afraid of what He will do then the blessings of God will flow like a river in your church.
Quit being afraid of the Precious Holy Spirit and what He will do. That is absurd if you think about it. If there is anyone that we should never be afraid of it is the Precious Holy Spirit. He is our breath, our life and our being.
Also don’t be ashamed of the Holy Spirit when He does moves in praise and worship and speaking in tongues and the gifts of the Spirit.
What did Jesus say when He was on the face of the earth and ministered to man? “Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my Words in this adulterous and sinful generation; (sounds just like the times that you and I live in now, right?) of Him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when He cometh in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” Mark 8:38
We as ministers of the gospel need to be obedient to what the Holy Spirit tells us what to do regardless of who is or who is not in the service and flow with the Holy Ghost.
I want to please God more than man any day and if people are offended that is up to the Holy Spirit to minister to them and He is well able to do that. So don’t be afraid about what the Lord is telling you to do as a minister of the gospel just be obedient to Him and do it.
That is the exact reason why that praise and worship service was so powerful you could cut it with a knife. No one was ashamed of what was going on as it was spontaneous. That praise and worship was led of the Spirit and in that atmosphere that “first time visitor” will be able to be delivered from anything that has torn his or her life apart if he or she will just be hungry and thirsty for the move of the Spirit of God.
WHY BE ASHAMED OF WHAT’S GOING ON AS LONG AS IT IS LED OF THE HOLY SPIRIT?
It is sad to say but I have been in a lot of church services in my life in many kinds of Christian churches and many were more like funeral services than you could imagine.
Those ministers and those congregations wouldn’t let the Holy Spirit in that service period.
A sad commentary to what’s going on in Christiandom around the world.
Now let’s go back to the service Nita and I were in:
That service was mixed with the powerful praise and worship with periods of prophecy i.e. edification, exhortation and comfort as well as regular prophetic words given forth.
I sensed the presence of the Lord in such a fullness that tears kept running down my face all through that outpouring of praise and worship to the Lord.
I encourage you this very day that you take the time to worship the Lord each day, make it a point to pour out your heart in adoration to Him.
There are many of you that are going through very dark times, you are in depression, cast down and do not know where to turn. Satan may have told you to even take your life, that it is no use to live anymore and you will never get out of the mess you are in.
But I would have you know that this is the time like never before that you need to lift your hands up to the Lord and start praising and worshipping Him.
Yes you may not feel like it but feelings don’t have anything to do with having faith to worship God when your world is falling apart.
The Spirit of God spoke to my heart this morning as I was getting ready to present the Word of God to you and directed me to tell you that when you don’t feel like praising and worshipping the Lord that is the most important time to do that. Praise and worship when you feel like you are buried in the cares of this world actually shows faith to God. It shows that in spite of the fact you do not feel like praise and worship that you have trust and faith in the Great God who loves you with an everlasting love.
So I encourage you to stop right now and raise your hands to the Lord and praise and worship Him, it is the sign of surrender to Him. Anyone can praise the Lord when things are going good but when your world is tumbling down on you it takes guts to worship God then but the results are tremendous it will turn that situation around.
The scripture that the Lord gave me this morning for encouragement to all of you is Psalm 8:1-2: “O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens. You have taught children and infants TO TELL OF YOUR STRENGTH (THIS IS PRAISE AND WORSHIP TO OUR LORD) SILENCING YOUR ENEMIES AND ALL WHO OPPOSE YOU.” NLT (Look what praise and worship to our Lord will do, IT WILL SILENCE YOUR ENEMIES, DEMONIC BEINGS WHO OPPOSE YOU).
Both of the above verses are talking about praising our Lord and how powerful it is, (it will still satanic beings). Hallelujah to our Lord!!!
I have graphically seen how praise and worship literally will silence your enemies which are demonic beings.
I was holding a church service and all of us were lifting our hands in adoration and praise to the Lord. Almost immediately a lady that came to the church service fell to the floor and when I stooped down this came out of my mouth, “satan in the name of Jesus you loose this person,” as I remember I also pled the blood of Jesus over her.
Her statement to me is that she felt sick, (I found out later that she was totally demon possessed and later I cast the devils out of her but I learned right there that satan and demonic beings cannot stand or be around praise and worship of our Lord).
That should tell you a lot right there, when demonic beings are oppressing you, lift those hands of yours toward heaven and shout the victory. Start dancing before the Lord, speak praise and adoration to the Lord and the stronghold that satan had you bound up in will fall off you.
That is a spiritual fact.
Look what happens when you lose your song of joy in the Lord, depression and defeat will come over you from the enemy when you lose your song, when you lost your joy. Nehemiah told the people of Israel that the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10
This scene is that Israel was taken into Babylonian captivity because of sins that they had committed over a period of time before the Lord and they lost their song: “By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion (Jerusalem). We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.” Psalm 137:1-2
This next scene is Jesus and the disciples are returning from the Mount of Olives and the disciples are absorbed in praise and worship to the Lord.
Then of course some “sour religious people” told Jesus that He needed to have His disciples stop all of the praise and worship. What did Jesus say to those people that were criticizing His disciples, “…I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.” Luke 19:37-40
What does the Word of God say about where the Lord is when you praise and worship Him? “But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.” Psalm 22:3
Let me ask you this, are you ashamed to really praise and worship the Lord?
If you are you never will be able to have victory in your life.
I encourage you to get over it. Turn a new leaf, ask the Lord to help you be a worshipper of God.
Do you want the Lord to be right on the spot when you praise and worship Him in the time of your deepest trouble? I just gave you the verse that says the Lord inhabits the praise of His people.
If you ever want the presence of God in your life and hopefully you do every day, make praise and worship to the Lord a daily privilege and watch how your life will turn around for the good.
Amen, Amen and Amen!!!
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 us 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 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.

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.
