When I thought about this fruit of the Spirit which is joy Psalm 137:1-4 came up in my spirit. It is a story about how the Israelite's are taken captive and are taken to Babylon. It is a story about how the Israelite's lost their joy when they were taken in captivity to Babylon and could not sing a song.
Psalm 137:1-4 is talking about once you lose your joy you lose your song. There must always be a song of the Lord in your heart. (Nehemiah 8:10, Nehemiah told the children of Israel that the joy of the Lord is your strength).
Psalm 137:2 Once you hang your harp upon the willows there is no joy left in you and you have given up.
Please share this website with others that you know. Remember the Word of God will bless every person no matter who they are. God speaks to our hearts when we receive ministry from Him and He puts others people in our hearts and tells us to call or e mail that person because they need the Word of God also.
You never know what that friend or family member of yours is going through. The trauma and fear that they are experiencing.
So please follow what the Spirit of the Living God is telling you and call up or e mail other people that you know so they too can receive the powerful Word of God in their lives.
That also includes the shut ins which includes people who are disabled or now are old and not able to come to a church building but still need ministering to just like you and me. So please give our website address to these people and see that they are blessed. Thank you.

The word Joy from the original Greek means cheerfulness, calm delight and gladness.
There is only 1 source for joy and that is the Lord. The world cannot give you joy no matter what you do or become. The world can give you happiness but often times that is fleeting, it’s there for a while and then it leaves. (But only the Lord can give any person joy).
God’s joy in your life keeps you going when you have the deepest trials you can imagine. Joy is the ingredient from the Lord that will keep you solid during times when everything around you is a mess.
God’s Word declares something that we must never forget. “According as His divine power hath given unto us ALL THINGS THAT PERTAIN UNTO LIFE AND GODLINESS, THROUGH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIM THAT HATH CALLED US TO GLORY AND VIRTUE.” _2 Peter 1:3
God’s Word declares that we ALREADY have all that we need IN US that pertains unto life and godliness and it is revealed in our life as we continue to meditate on the KNOWLEDGE of Him through God’s Word.
Need more proof?
“And ye are COMPLETE in Him, which is the head of all principality and power.” Colossians 2:10
Here is your 3rd witness. Jesus on the cross cried out and said, “IT IS FINISHED.” John 19:30
Let’s go another step further, “But of Him are ye (YOU) in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.” I Corinthians 1:30
So what did Jesus mean when He said it is finished, all we need to do is look at the 4 verses that I have stated? 2 Peter 1:3, Colossians 2:10, John 19:30 and I Corinthians 1:30.
I have given you irrefutable evidence. Amen?_
Maybe you remember the song: “I got that joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart, down in my heart, down in my heart, I’ve got that joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart down in my heart to stay. WELL GLORY!!!
So practice the presence of the Holy Spirit in your spirit. Allow the joy that He put in your heart to come out, after all you have the final say so and if you don’t want that joy of the Lord to come out, IT WON’T.
No matter what you are going through the Spirit of God is in you and so is that joy, HIS JOY so let that joy flood out of you, it will give you a blessed day every day regardless of what you are going through.
Joy will keep your attitude in a positive mode and will help to change the situation and bring you PEACE, which is the next fruit of the Spirit that I will be talking about.
Acts 13:46-52 vs. 52 “And the disciples were filled with joy, and with the Holy Ghost.”
Why were the disciples filled with joy and with the Holy Ghost? The reason is that we see Paul and Barnabas and other disciples of Jesus Christ going into cities and people were getting saved and filled with the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. People were healed and set free. Please read Acts 14:1-10.
Acts 8:8 “And there was great joy in that city.”
Why was there joy in that city, because the power of God was at work in the disciples of the New Testament Church the one that you and I still live in?
We should expect signs, wonders and miracles to follow all of us that are in the 5 fold ministry and laymen as well.
Nita and I have joy as we lead people to Jesus Christ. We have led people to Jesus Christ on their deathbed, in malls, in restaurants, in hospitals, on sidewalks, in many different places. Tears of joy have come down our faces as we have had the honor and privilege to do this.
God has called Nita and I to walk into the supernatural things of God like all of you that are born again. That is the only qualification.
We have been teaching on the Baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues in our church. During this time we have laid hands on 10 different people and have prayed for them and they have received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues.
It’s easy we just believe what the Bible says about the Baptism of the Holy and lay hands on people and they receive it. Glory and honor to the Lord. It brings us great joy.
We believe in the Precious Lord Jesus Christ we serve and Nita and I expect miracles and they happen just like the Word of God says they will even as I just gave you verses from the Book of Acts.
The Book of Acts is a blueprint for the New Testament Church. You need to read it and do it. It works, glory be to the LIVING GOD.
In the area of prayer Nita and I pray for the sick and oppressed all the time. We have seen miracle after miracle of the power and anointing of God flowing through us. Recently a 90 year old man received a creative miracle in his body as he received his healing from prostrate cancer after we prayed for him.
We have seen other forms of cancer just leave in Jesus name including brain tumors and many other forms of cancer. This gives Nita and I joy as hurting people receive their healing from Jesus Christ.
I have been in ICU and a man that was at deaths door with a massive heart problem got up on the edge of the bed after I prayed for him and shortly after went home to his family as a creative miracle occurred in his heart and he was made whole by the power of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Nita and I have prayed for people with mental disorders including a lady we prayed for with schizophrenia delivered totally and of her own volition stopped taking pills. Over a year later she was still delivered and set free from just being obedient to God as Nita and I laid our hands on her and prayed for deliverance for her.
I have cast out demons out of a lady who was totally demon possessed and before praying for her was hissing at me and crawling on the floor like a snake. The devil was talking out of her to me. I commanded the demons to come out of her and they did.
I then led this lady to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as her Savior and Lord and she received Him. Then I led her to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit and she spoke with other tongues as the Spirit gave her utterance. She later came back and gave her testimony of how the Lord had delivered her. Praise the Living God. Once again we have great joy when we see the Lord deliver someone that is demon possessed through ministry to them in Jesus name.
Nita and I cannot do anything in our self. It is all God and His awesome power and anointing through Nita and I.
We have been called to walk in the supernatural things of God as ALL of you are if you are born again.
I recently talked to an evangelist, a brother in the Lord in Africa and encouraged him to lay his hands even on the severe cases and pray for them in the name of Jesus and he got back to me that great signs and wonders and miracles followed his ministry as he dared to believe God.
In all of this Nita and I have great joy unspeakable.
But the greatest joy we have is leading a person to Jesus Christ. Tears come down our faces as we have the honor and privilege to lead people to Christ.
It along with all the other testimonies that I just gave you are what Nita and I are called to do just like you are. Amen?
We just believe the Word of God and expect God’s supernatural power and anointing to come out of us as we minister to others just like in the Book of Acts.
This world needs a demonstration of God’s love and power through all of us, it will draw them to Christ even as it did in the Book of Acts.
There is joy, joy, joy in serving our Precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is an honor and privilege to minister in His name, the name above all names.
We love Him!

Your giving makes that possible as you sow into lives around the world. “For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.” Please see I Corinthians 3:9
At present we have 10 different ministries that have contacted us from around the world that are viewing this website with you every week and using our teaching to minister to their congregations. In addition to that we are able to teach them individually as God leads us to help them grow in the Word of God. They are wonderful men and women of God comprised of 8 pastors and 2 evangelists.
These 10 ministries are touching the lives of thousands as they minister in their churches and go out into their cities and neighboring cities and hold revival crusades in their cities.
Nita and I are truly honored and humbled that the Lord supernaturally sent these pastors and evangelists from around the world for us to help them. They did not know us and we did not know them. The Holy Spirit literally had their hands get on the computer keys and led them to our ministry website.
We asked them how they found us and they said it was the Lord, it was the Holy Spirit of God. Hallelujah. All praise to the mighty God we serve.
