John Alexander Dowie was a pastor of a church in Sydney, Australia when the bubonic plague struck around 1875. He buried forty members of his church in less then one month and four more people from his congregation died and were yet to be buried. Many others became sick with this awful plague, in which there was no cure. “After visiting the many sick members of his flock one day, Dr. Dowie returned home and sat in his study, his arms folded upon his desk, his head upon his arms, weeping before God.
talked about what is coming, more than ten years. The people in our church are ready for this. Therefore, nothing of what is happening now is a surprise to me. Every god of America has fallen – sports have fallen, Hollywood has fallen, television shows canceled. Even the god of some mega churches fell, these churches are empty today. I have warned for years that churches will disappear in one night.
There was 4 of us out for a drive one day and I felt the Lord was wanting to bless us with a great meal. We had been doing meetings and travelling for a few months and had some down time.
The restaurant I felt to go to was $100 per person. I knew we had under a dollar between the four of us. I asked my mates if they had heard about where we were to go and eat. Instantly my mate confirmed the restaurant. Part of me was super excited, the other part was wonder how we would pay $400 for food with no money.
In reference to the negativity surrounding the phrase “Hyper Grace”, I don’t see much of a difference between that and “Amazing Grace”. The life of Jesus was both hyper and amazing, certainly never cheap, but His Grace is always free.
It’s difficult to imagine a Christian being scared of the Presence of God. Scared to the point of running out the building and shaking like they have seen, well, the devil himself.
During a recent Healing Event we had a visitor in a wheelchair. Unlike some Church models we do not consider people “targets” or “go hunting” for a sick person. We treat everyone with the dignity and honour they deserve. People are not their disease or injury, they are a Child of God.
I was due to be touring overseas for many weeks. Early on into my tour I got a Skype saying a friend had cancer and was not well at all.
In the anointing you get to make split second decisions. I was still away for weeks but said to come over as soon as I get home. I was going to finish my tour then finish this cancer when I got home.
My friend was rather “anti-church” and had suffered terribly under the Charismatic Religious system. Year of demon hunting and looking for booger men behind every bush.
I’d been home a few minutes, hadn’t showered and was in desperate need of good Aussie coffee and some Aussie Lamb chops, when my friend was bought over.

The Anointing it 100% transferable, almost like an unwanted STI, you get it and not sure who from. Another minister was catching for Pastor Taylor and got an impartation when Pastor Taylors finger touched his on the prayer line. Simple as that… tap & go, God style. All of a sudden the Preacher started operating in amazing levels of discernment.
Maybe it was the Devil who healed me? I love miracles and I love seeing peoples reactions to them. A Christian guy had a sore lower back, for years, and it turned out that one leg was a bit shorter than his other. So we sat him firmly up against a chair and I got…
I’d only been introduced to Holy Ghost for about a week when I had an amazing encounter at home. I’d finished Bible College at 4pm and went home to chill. As I lay on my bed I was completely covered in the “tingles”, the Anointing, and was taken into an encounter. Not like an open eye vision, but was actually inside of this encounter.
I saw myself as a toddler playing on the beach in Sydney. I had on a blue shorts, a white singlet top and a white hat. I was playing in the sand and having a great time.
I “came to” after about an hour. I felt amazing and peaceful. I was about to make some dinner when I noticed beach sand on my bed. I lived in the City of Perth, on the 7th floor and it just happened to be unit 7 as well, for those that like to play the Bible lotto.
