Declaring Truth Advancing the Kingdom of God

Ministry Update – Fall 2014

I so glad to be back with another blog entry. It has been a while since we last wrote an article because of our busy schedule of  working on some great projects that will be revealed in October.

October is a month when  like to unveil our teachings and videob about the world of the supernatural, the truth about Halloween, and how to break the power of darkness in your life. Since early 2000, this ministry has seen numerous people set from the clutches of evil with our spiritual  warfare teachings.

33647_1406416556583_1117479052_30894836_7112825_nBack in 2009, our movie ministry called  Enduring Faith Pictures set out on a quest to make a web movie called Spellbound by the Paranormal that exposes the paranormal and the dark side. Since then we have produced several short videos that are available only on YouTube.

Here is a clip from the film :

We will be making this available for download and on DVD along with a study guide beginning in October. We want to make it affordable so that many can get ahold of this powerful documentary. This will be a great tool for churches, ministries, and groups to have.

Beginning the first week of October will be highlighting old archives that will go deep in shedding light on the Kingdom of darkness and letting the truth speak for itself.  Some have been requesting teaches on Halloween, exposing the occult and the supernatural power of God. So This October, we are exposing the dark.

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret.  But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.  Therefore He says:

“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”

Ephesians 5:11-14

What’s New outside of Enduring Faith Ministries

Today I wanted to share about what has been happening. I’m never idle when it comes to work of the Kingdom.

springtown-revival-flyerBesides the work at Enduring Faith Ministries, I have joined a powerful revival team called Revival Waters. In fact I’m preparing to minster in worship and music at the second revival event happening in Springtown, Texas.

Visit the official website here : www.revivalwaters.org

Our last Wilmer Revival was such a success and now we are three weeks away from the Springtown Revival. The spirit of revival is moving across the state of Texas and we are seeing a move of God unlike any other in history of the church.

If you missed the Wilmer Revival: check these highlights.

Father’s Take Your Positions

I want to say, Happy Father’s day to the all fathers, spiritual fathers, and fathers to be.

I wrote this to encourage men to take their positions as fathers to a fatherless generation. It’s a lengthy post but it’s much needed to encourage fathers and spiritual fathers.

When men abandoned their position as leaders especially fathers then our nation suffers greatly.

My Dad 

My father went to be with Jesus on September 5, 1995 on his birthday  he was  young and in his prime.  He inspired me to be the preacher that I am today. It’s only by the help of the Lord that he has brought our family this far.  He finished his race here on Earth and I have a different race to run.

Your earthly father may have passed, abandoned, and doesn’t want nothing to do with you but my God is a father to the fatherless.

A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation. God sets the solitary in families; He brings out those who are bound into prosperity; But the rebellious dwell in a dry land.  Psalm 68:-5-6

The word father means “life-giver.” The greatest life-giver is our Heavenly Father.

GOD AS HEAVENLY FATHER

The Bible reveals God as the Lord of the universe and calls Him “Father” in both Old and New Testaments.
He is the Father and Lord of creation. James describes Him as “the Father of the lights.” He created the stars as well as the angels.

The Old Testament names angels as “the sons of God” (benai elohim). Paul says that every family under heaven are named by or set aside for Him (Eph. 3:15).
We all need a caring human father (or an equivalent) as early as possible in our lives to help us understand what God the Father is like as a Person.

fastThis picture caused me to get angry with holy zeal? It said “Another Fatherless day again”. Instead of praising the fathers, society looks down on fathers because of  fatherless children in our county.

We have a generation of angry young men and women that hate their fathers.

10-things-men-shouldnt-be-insecure-about-flashSatan’s goal is to take out the man because he has the responsibility of leading. If he can destroy the head of the house he can destroy the family. The family unit is under assault and God is rising up men who said enough is enough I’m not letting the enemy come and destroy my family on my watch. It’s time for the men to reclaim his position. We need in proper leadership position to fight this battle against men.

Men have been so occupied with things that they have no time for being leaders and priest in their home, churches, and communities.

Men that are possessors think they got all together. That’s why our society is all mess up, it tells the men to be macho, you’re the boss, nobody can tell me what to do, I’m in charge of my life, my family, etc. No, God is.

What about men in the church today? 

Approximately 60% of church population is female. Men we have stepped back and allowed the women to move in our place.

As Christ is the head of the church so are we as men to be head of our household. Whether it’s the family or church.
Lord ,where do we need to be? We are the men for the job.

It takes humility for thee man to admit that he has been wrong.
The mantle of authority is yours men. You have to live it, wear it, and do it in humility.

Three roles that father has in the all areas of life
• He guides
• He guards
• He governs

A Christian Father responsibilities 

A Christian Man leads his house as a steward, priest, minister, counselor; he must be everything to home as what Christ is to the church.
Men it is a lot of responsibility and God made us for that purpose. We can bear it not our children nor our wives but us.
You are the minister of your home. If there is no leadership in the home men, it collapses.

Responsibility as Priests 

Fathers are the priest of the homes. All families that prayer together stay together. Ministry is not just preaching ministry is prayer. A man never stops ministering; it’s a lifestyle. When he stops then disaster takes place in the home and he is detached from doing any ministry or serving at the house of God.

We must become those men that are born again, baptize in the Holy Spirit, prayer warriors, intercessor, worshipper, lovers of the Word of God, servants in the house of God, and known in the community and city.

When this occurs then the man as father takes his rightly place and the church of Jesus Christ is stronger and more protected.

Men, Fathers and Mentors

Fathers are needed today more than ever before.  I am not a biological  father yet but God has me on a mission to raise up and build spiritual sons that will excel beyond what I can do and say.

“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and terrible day of the LORD comes. And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the land with a curse.” (Malachi 4:5,6)

it’s time to rise up to a new level of responsibility and lead our generation back to the family unit.

A survey was asked among children who their favorite superhero was, guest which one was number one? Their dad!
Our modern youth today need fathers of good courage, heroes, men of faith and valor.
Jesus is our role model our heroes  are the Joshua’s, Daniels, and  Davids .

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom you will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15

Reconciliation begins with God the Father 

What we need is for men to reconcile to their Heavenly Father. In order to be a father you must first become a son. A man who goes to the Heavenly Father when we need help. It’s not hard but for many men, we find it difficult to do this.

My father is no longer here, He died at  a young age. I was angry, confused, and didn’t think I could measure up to being a man. My father told me many times that I wouldn’t amount to anything but God thinks differently.  My Heavenly father says I’m a Son of God and heir to his Kingdom. Read More Here

This is how I remember my father his life and legacy.

My father was my greatest inspiration for becoming the man of God I am today. I am the second generation of ministers in my family and I have no plans of stopping.

Father Hunger

In the world it is referred to as “father hunger,” an empty place in the hearts of many men who never experienced effective fathering.

For them there was no man to pour into them those things that a boy needs; no father to guide them in manliness, no man to model manhood for them, to teach them how to relate to women, to affirm their own manhood. At the least such men are left with an uncertainty as to how they should live their lives as men. At worst, they lead their lives in destructive ways.

Father’s take your position and authority back.

Listen to this message  I preached on Father’s Day in 2005. A timely word about reconciliation begins with our Heavenly Father.  May it bless you. listen here: http://efministries.podomatic.com/entry/2013-06-11T09_27_07-07_00

God is raising up a last day army of devoted men who will not retreat or surrender.

If we can get the men in their right positions we can change the world! Fathers arise and take your place!!

 

EF Ministries Update & Revival Coming to DFW

It’s been a while since I last posted and so much has taken place. that now I’m free to write this.

On a sad note on April 22, 2014 my brother Arthur passed into the glories of Eternity.  I will miss him greatly.  We grew up in the music and church since we were children.  I do know that Arthur is in no more pain, his walking, running, and enjoying Heaven.  The story of Arthur Damon Gutierrez will be told and shared for years to come, a music legacy of almost 40 years.  This video will go you an idea of the life of my beloved brother Arthur Damon Gutierrez , you will always be in my heart.

This is the family singing “Through It All” by Andrew Crouch at his memorial service.

My brother Arthur loved camp meeting  music and I’ve produced several CD’s that are going to be released when he led worship .  Just like this one: These songs and others are on Gospel CD 1 &2 are available from EF Ministries. If you would like to obtain a copy, leave  a comment or email us: efministries@live.com.

10265560_10152858589247907_2736015543811108037_oJust recently on May 11, 2014 I was honored to participate in the ministry ordination service at my home church, Upper Room in Keller, Texas .

 

10368842_10152858591272907_9220340264949833123_o it was a powerful morning that will impact my life for a long time.

During all of this time God was  given me a strong endurance to stand in joy in the midst of tragedy.   As well as giving me a vision for revival starting in  the Dallas Fort Worth area.  For years I’ve preached about revival coming to America. My first message was back in 2003 and until the present it’s been my heart’s cry.  We are about to see mighty revivals spreading across the land.

On Saturday February 22 of this year as I was driving into Downtown Dallas, the Spirit of God spoke to me and said “I want you to pray for revival in this city and pray against the strongholds that are keeping the city in fear.” I began to pray and that night I experienced a powerful wave of the anointing and ministered for five hours under the power of God.  I prophesied that revival would break out in Dallas, Texas.

Watch the service here. 

Revival Coming to DFW Metroplex

God’s Not Dead, Apologetics, and Faith

 

gods-not-dead

REAL FAITH ISN’T BLIND, IT’S EVIDENCE-BASED. THERE’S OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE THAT GOD’S NOT DEAD.” — Dr. Rice Broocks

We live in a time and age when most Christians don’t know why the believe, or what is the foundation of their faith, and how to answer the skeptics, atheist, and agnostics about the validity of God’s Word.

After watching the movie God’s Not Dead, I’m sure a number of people are asking questions about the existence of God. I recommend you read the book of the same title from author Rice Broocks. Here is the interview with Kevin Sorbo with the author of God’s Not Dead.

This quote is taken from  their website.

Despite this spiritual awakening, skepticism is on the rise. A 2012 Pew Forum study found that one-third of adults under the age of 30 are religiously unaffiliated today, the highest percentage ever in Pew Research Center polling.  A 2012 Newsweek article cites “the fastest-growing segment of belief among the young is atheism.”

Offering nine basic proofs of God’s existence, this book gives a clear, understandable overview of the evidence while responding directly to many skeptical claims. “My hope is that there will be thousands of believers… who are able to defend their faith in the midst of the unbelieving culture around them,” says Broocks. “There are straightforward answers to the questions posed by skeptics, yet most believers aren’t familiar enough with them to explain them. http://www.godsnotdead.org.

Here is the trailer for the book

here are some other some other films you may have missed dealing with science, the bible, and faith.  These are available on DVD to rent from EF Videos.

The Genesis Code

The Theory of Everything

 

Learning Apologetics Is Important

There are a great number of Christians who have not been taught or have knowledge about what they believe as a Christian. That is why we need to study to show ourselves approved and prepared to answer everyone concerning what we believe.

Most atheist and agnostics have done their study and research. It’s embarrassing when a Christian doesn’t have the answers to the existence of God and the Christian faith. Most atheists are filled with anger and bitterness. I have sat down and spokenwith a few of them before. Once they were believers but something happened to shake their faith.

It’s time for Christians to get equipped and know for a facts on  what they truly are defending. I believe it’s time that we look at the study of apologetics so that we may an answers for our faith. Most Christians are not prepared to answer the questions about what and why they believe in God.

My love for Apologetic study

For over  20 years the study of apologetics has been one of my passions and I lived to defend the faith. The only thing was that I had a lot of great information not lacked divine revelation. I feel an urgency to begin teaching and equipping believers to have the answers concerning their faith.

This website will be dedicated to posting teaching documents, videos, power points, and other resources to help you understand Apologetics. download our teaching Apologetics 101 to get a basic understanding of why it is important to the Christian faith.

What is Apologetics?

Apologetics is the branch of Christianity that deals with the defense and establishment of the Christian faith.

The word apologetics comes from the Greek word apologia found in

1 Peter 3:15 (“…always be ready to give a defense [apologia] to everyone who asks you…”). Apologia is a legal term that simply means “defense.” So, apologetics is the branch of Christian theology that is concerned with making a defense, or case, for the truth claims of the Christian faith.

But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence,” (1 Peter 3:15).

Contending for the Faith

Contending the faith is not a spiritual gift just for pastors, teachers, and parents; it is a command for all believers  Here are a two biblical passages that makes this case:

Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. (Jude 3)

We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ. (Corinthians 10:5)

We must be study and be ready to answer those who want to know why Jesus is the only way.

Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman who needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  2 Timothy 2:15

I believe there is an awakening happening that is being sparked by the movie, “God’s Not Dead”. May it challenge us and prepare the body of Christ to contend for the faith. Keep us in prayer as we prepare working on a teaching handbook on apologetics in the near future. God bless. Next article will be about the spirit of antichrist behind Hollywood and Noah.

God’s Not Dead Is Starting A Revival!

GNDDesktop1_1920x1200 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;  1 Peter 3:15 

I’m going to divert from the topic of revival for a few posts and focus on a powerful movement happening right now. The media is talking about it, the critics can’t believe it’s success, and the kingdom of darkness is not liking it. The Christian film company Pure Flix is saying that Gods Not Dead is starting a revival. That’s not my words but their’s. Here is what the God’s Not Dead blog is saying, taking from their website :

God is Not Dead is not just a movie-it’s starting a revival!! Families are having deep conversations, people are recommitting their lives to Christ and people are filled with joy, hope,and inspiration as they think about the film.

Box office surprise

The movie in two weeks has brought in 22 million dollars in the box office, it has added 50% more theaters around the country, and it’s the talk on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Even Hollywood is surprised calling it a miracle. Christian movies released in the theatres rarely make it pass the second week of showing but God’s Not Dead is gaining more support and people can’t stop talking about it.

Church movie outreach

On Thursday Night March 17  Our church , The Upper Room rented out a private screening to see “God’s Not Dead”.We were in great anticipation the entire day of what God was going to do in this outreach. During the showing I was glued to the screen the entire time as this story unfolded. The movie delivered and left a  tremendous impact on me to restart the ministry of equipping and teaching apologetics once again.

Salvation in the movie theatre

1011614_10203667062185832_273349586_n

After the movie we had a salvation call and prayed for the sick. Gods presence filled that theater room and His power was felt in the theater.   Several decisions for Jesus Christ were made and many were healed. The outreach demonstrated that we can take the Gospel outside of the four walls of the church and see souls saved and God’s power demonstrated. Yes in the movie theater, why not? I’ve done film evangelism nights outdoors and seen God’s hand move and many times. I’m used to a move of God like this and we need more of it in Dallas Fort Worth.

Pure Flix Films

You may be asking who is Pure Flix Films?  Pure Flix films  is the #1 producer of Christians entertainment. Our video ministry has just about all of their films in our library. We have followed their ministry since it started in 2006.  Read about it here.

Pure Flix movies

God’s Not Dead was their first theatrical release and they knock this one out of the ballpark! Without much mainstream advertisement and over a million likes on Facebook, it has proven that when the Lord is behind a cause nothing is impossible.

Our Passion for Christian Movies

I’m a great crusader for faith films that are filled with truth and a message of salvation.

God gave me a vision almost 20 years ago about a video ministry of Christian and family films. Almost two years ago we started out video rental and have received great feedback on how it’s impacting lives.  Read our inspiring article here. Over the years  I have seen the power of Christian movies to change lives. For more information visit our video rental page for more details.

Supporting Christian Films 

In order for Pure Flix Films to  produce top-notch quality faith films they need your support and finances. Send Hollywood a message that we don’t want them making movies for us, we will produce them with the help of Christians around the nation.

Not backing down

Believers spend to much of their time arguing, debating, and fighting against injustice and bashing.  I have never seen so much heated debates on blogs than I’ve seen in the past years.  God’s Not Dead has been under heavy assault from critics, atheist, and even some Christians. Yet despite the opposition it’s building momentum. the world can’t understand it, how well this movie is doing. I know why it’s doing well because it’s a God thing.

Internet bashing by social media

Everyone thinks that they are entitled to their opinion and blogs have made it possible for everyone to post what they believe. Yet many of these have no track record or evidence that they should even be afforded an opinion.  Christians have gotten so used to fighting through social media instead of going to the source of the problem.  There is a lot talk about doing something yet no action is taking.

Standing Up Against the Culture

I’m overjoyed that  there are those who are not giving in to compromise and tolerance of the culture. Pure Flix films is boldly taking a stand for the truth. God’s Not Dead has become the #1 Christian film in America regardless of what many critics are saying.  I pray that it impacts more lives and that it will surpass the expectations of all the naysayers. It is a prime example that we don’t need un-biblical blockbusters made by atheist like “Noah” we need truth!

From a minister’s heart 

As a minister of the Gospel, I want to encourage and challenge believers to promote God’s Not Dead. I want to take the time to speak to churches and ministries, you have a perfect opportunity to be a witness utilizing this film as an evangelism tool. Don’t be ashamed of Jesus,  stand up bold for your faith and don’t back down.

For those who have not had a chance to go see the new movie God’s Not Dead.  please do so to help start and spread the movement. Get on your cell phones out and text everyone you know God’s Not Dead. Share it on your social network, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and all others you have access too It’s time to let the world know that …
GOD’S NOT  DEAD!

Revival of Faith Movies

This is a powerful time for the revival and reformation of Christian films in the mainstream. I believe it’s  sending a message to ungodly Hollywood that we will not go and support their films. If you speak evil of God we will stand up and contend for our faith.  Enough is enough; We will arise to speak the truth without fear. This is challenge to Christian America stop feeding yourself with Hollywood junk food and fill your spirit with films that lift up the name of Jesus!

I WILL WHAT ABOUT YOU?

Thank you for support Enduring Faith Ministries. We encourage you to come back for our next two articles “God’s Not Dead & Contending  for the Faith” and Hollywood and the Antichrist Spirit that exposes Noah and other films like it. You don’t want to miss it. Until then we exhort you to continue  building Enduring Faith.

The Fires of Revival Are Stirring Again!

  And from the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom suffers violence and the violent take it by force. Matthew 11:12

 revival-best-bestThere is a fire burning within me that I haven’t felt in almost  all my years of ministry  . There is urgency in the body of Christ to preach the message of God’s Kingdom. Since the passing of one of the great giants of the faith, Pastor Steve Hill, there has a zeal stirring up in myself and others that sense that it’s time for revival again. These next two months will be dedicated on articles specifically about stirring up revival. Read our previous post in our revival series”Repentance is Hindering Revival”.

Restore us oh, Lord God of hosts, Cause your face to shine, and we shall be saved! Psalm 80:19

We will be releasing new videos, uploading new PDF’s, audio messages, and various resources to equip you to take this message to your city, state, and nations of the world. You can find them here or go to The Enduring Faith Channel on YouTube.

It’s an overwhelming zeal of Holy Fire that is stirring in me that needs to be released to the body of Christ who are dead and ready to give up.

Therefore He says: 
“Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.” Ephesians 5:14

There are just too  many winds of doctrine causing the body of Christ to be tossed to and fro. that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried by every wind of doctrine, by trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful planning. Ephesians 5:14

We will come back and address this in later articles; especially about the false grace revolution. Right now I’m concentrating on what God’s wants to say at this moment.

revival-best1I preached a powerful revival message about  a year ago in Dallas. Since then I’ve only been invited to a couple of other churches but all that is about to change. The Lord is saying that there is a remnant of churches in DFW praying for revival in their church and He is about to send it; for He is faithful to fulfill His promises.

The Lord has already spoken to me that new doors are opening and that this message is about to spread across the DFW metroplex.

It’s amazing how many ministries out there are lying to themselves declaring that they are successful when in reality there is no sign of repentance, no hunger and thirst for righteousness, and no manifestation of God’s miracle working power. This ministry can no longer stay silent while we see the church walking powerless  and in defeat. That was never God’s intention.

His church is supposed to be the most powerful force on this face of this earth. Instead his church is filled with inactive and lazy saints.  It’s time to break loose of the chains of spiritual slothfulness and get fully equipped for the front-lines.

Our mission :is to build up disciples, empowering, and releasing them with unified special team force ministries into their local churches and nations of the world.

It’s time for the revival of the supernatural in America.  The Lord is preparing me to be sent out to stir up the fires of revival in Dallas, Texas. It is going to start in the heart of Dallas and spread throughout the DFW metroplex. In fact, Dallas, Texas was the birthing place of the great Pentecostal revivals of the past.

If you ever studied the history of revival, you found that Dallas was the launching pad of the many revivals that spread from all across the country and around the world.

Great healing and evangelistic ministries were birthed in Dallas including The Voice of Healing founded by Gordon Lindsay where great and power moves took place. The Fires of Revival were being released from 1920’s to 1960 out of this region of the country.

TentHealing1Powerful servants of God were emerging at that time like A.A. Allen, Jack Coe, Oral Roberts, W.V Grant, and many others. There were packing them in their camp meetings. Thousands were getting saved, healed, and miracles were taking place. It was evident that the Kingdom of God was advancing.

But then Dallas, Texas began to suffer a spiritual attack, starting with the shooting of President John K. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas. The revivals began to decline and eventually slowly die out.

Since then many churches in Dallas, Texas have focused less on building God’s Kingdom and instead they are occupied with bigger buildings, larger crowds, mega-churches, and more driven by money and success instead of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.

Dallas is my hometown and I never seen so much division, separation, and in need of the supernatural power of God then in this city. But God is not finished with this city.

There are strongholds, principalities and powers over these cities that need to be torn down. He is sending me and others to reignite the fires of revival in that region. I prophecy you will see this happen and begin to spread to churches who want a move of God; a city-wide revival.

Let the Fires of Revival Stir Again!

Stay tuned for our upcoming  article “Time to Dig The Wells of Revival”.

Repentance Is Hindering Revival

Prayer25

” If my people are called by name will humble themselves, and pray, seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.  2 Chronicles 7:14

There is a unction in my spirit that God is calling the church to return back to repentance. To repent from all the accusations, lies, and evil doings against the household of faith.

When the church repents, God will send an outpouring of revival to this nation.  An awakening is about to take place that is going to change the course of history.  The presence of God was strong in this meeting that I  ministered for over five hours as we experienced wave after wave of the Holy Spirit. It wasn’t at a big church but a house.

Revival must start in the home before it breaks out in the church house.

One of the things that God spoke was that He  going to start-up the fires of revival in homes, cities, regions, across the nations of the world.  It’s going to spread out across the land and cause a shift in the body of Christ.

Therefore I remind to stir up the gift of God which is in you thorough the laying on of my hands.  2 Timothy 1:6

If you watch this video and you need a refilling of the Holy Spirit and Fire get ready to receive. 

God is speaking to me and has given this ministry a new vision and mission. To build up the saints to do the work of the ministry. To impart a double portion of what God has given me to anyone who will receive it. To take the Gospel of the Kingdom  to the streets, parks, churches, public areas and set-up meetings.                               With this new purpose, we’ve been giving a powerful vision.                      Our Ministry Motto:

BROADCASTING TRUTH ADVANCING THE KINGDOM OF GOD 

Our Vision: To build up the Body of Christ, tear down the powers of darkness, declaring truth, and advancing the Kingdom of God on the earth. 

It’s time for the message of the God’s eternal kingdom to preached once again. God is going to demonstrate He is the God of the supernatural and healings and miracles are to start breaking out  all around.

The days of miracles, signs, and wonders have not ceased and there are about to demonstrated like never before.  I was one of the ones who said before that holy laughter, encounters with God’s fire,  gold dust, and other manifestations were not of God. Until God let me experience so many waves of His Spirit and I had to repent.

In this video I talk about my experiences with the manifestations of God’s power.  

     God has given us a voice to speak  and stand up for truth and righteousness. For to long there has been a war going on between Christians over theology, doctrine, and practices.  it’s has never been so extreme like today.

With the cheap grace message flooding the church, the ideas of deconstructing Christianity  and the battle against miracles, signs, and wonders, the devil is content because as long as he has the church fighting against each other then he can take out his targets easier and faster.

That is why we need a move of God to sweep the world! In the midst of all the arguing and debating against preaching the Kingdom of God, a boldness is beginning to arise from those who are stepping out to speak the truth.

I challenge you to don’t sit back anymore and watch the enemy destroy the saints. It’s time to get on the front-lines and fight.  We must take ground and occupy. This message needs to spread across this nation and into the nations of the world. I challenge you to do your part to broadcast the truth. We will be back with more insights. 

Love In Action

Love-is-Pain-night-sky-31611935-1920-1080Today is Valentine’s Day when just about everyone’s is at the stores buying last minute valentine gifts. I was at the stores earlier this morning just observing the crazy frenzy rush to get that perfect boutique of roses, balloons, chocolates, cards, etc.  Can I give one recommendation? Don’t just gave a gift but put some action behind it.

To me it’s a two fold day, my wife birthday is also today.

I want to say Happy Birthday, Griselda my love. I’m so blessed and grateful for a wife that loves me unconditionally. One thing my wife and I do is give gifts to each other on Valentine’s Day. Just awhile ago we opened  up the gifts we got each other and the cards. It brought joy and some tears were shed after reading our cards to each other.

I challenge those who are reading this to do something to go out of your way to say I love you not just with gifts but with actions.
I love singing so I sang a song on her birthday just to show my love for her. It made her cry with tears of joy.

I want to speak to married Men for a moment, Men show your wives how much you love them. Go out of your way to show how much you appreciate them.  Do some of the house chores, write her a letter, get her a nice card, give each other gifts, also remember flowers are a plus, take her out for dinner, or senerade her with a song.  Believe me they love songs and poetry. It doesn’t take much to be romantic, you just have to do it. It will rekindle a long-lasting love, I know it works, just do it!

I did a broadcast about the topic of true love. I considered it one of our best radio programs we did last year on What is True Love. I pray it speaks to You about unconditional love towards your love for Jesus Christ, your spouse, family, and more . You can click on the link below. May it bless your life.http://efministries.podomatic.com/entry/2013-02-14T10_13_30-08_00

Only What You Do For Christ Will Last

ONLY WHAT YOU DO FOR CHRIST WILL LAST- written by Isaac Gabriel Gutierrez

Jesus_hugs_in_heaven

Dedicated in memory of David A. Martinez 1967-2014, my brother in Christ and a great friend.  I will see you again in Heaven’s glory when my work for the Lord is done.  May your zeal for Christ inspire others to follow your example!

Only what you do for Christ will last. What does that mean to you?  This is a puzzling statement that is worth investigating and unveiling the mystery of its content. To me signifies what you do for Christ here while we live will determine your eternal destiny in the hereafter.

It doesn’t matter how much material things you possess, money or wealth, the bottom line is, are you fulfilling a life of purpose as citizen of the  Kingdom of God? You will be amazed of how many have difficulty answering that question because they only live for the here and now. They have yet to realize that as ambassadors of Christ we are commissioned to represent Him.

Our society is so guilty of taken life for granted. We waste our time doing things that have no eternal value. We are not promised tomorrow and only what you do for Christ will last.

Two weeks ago,  I came face to face with this reality when I learned

that my friend, David A. Martinez was killed instantly in a car accident. The incident made the news but I didn’t learn of it until the next day.

It was hard for me to accept the news and that it was actually him. I kept praying that it was somebody else. When they finally identified that it was David, it struck me hard. How could this be?

I had just seen David and his family months earlier at a party celebration at my house.

20130215_215605I have so  many great memories of David Martinez .I  can remember the times when I invited Him and the  family to our home of many occasions. He was there when we dedicated our home, many birthdays of friends, special days like friendship day, etc. He was the life of the party and fun to be around.

He was there to pray and encourage me when I opened my snow cone business last year, he encouraged me greatly in our video ministry, and Men’s ministry.

David didn’t waste time with nonsense posts on Face book. He used it to evangelize and warn people about the dangers of the world. David A. Martinez was a worshiper and loved to dance before the Lord.  His joy and laughter was contagious. David was example of a man of purpose. He lived to tell others about Jesus.  He was a soul winner. One thing David understood that only what you do for Christ will last.

On Saturday morning February 1st of this year I attended his celebration service at Calvary Cathedral International in Fort Worth, Texas. It was a wonderful service. What a testimony of a man remembered and celebrated because His heart for God, people, and purpose. I considered it a tremendous honor to be among the pall-bearers at that service. The entire service touched me in so many ways. I will never forget it as long as I live.

These past two weeks have greatly motivated me to rethink life. I made a determination that I will not waste another day in fulfilling my purpose and eternal destiny. I encourage you to stop wasting precious time with things that have no eternal value. What will they say about you at your funeral service?  Most of us don’t like to talk about death but it is coming to us soon or later.

As a minister I’ve spoken at many funeral services where I knew the departed had made Heaven their home. In fact, I was given the opportunity to pray with them days or even hours before they left this earth. What joy to know that they are also with David in the great cloud of witnesses. (Hebrew 12:1)

James 4:14 says that our life is like a vapor. A vapor can be seen for short amount of time then it quickly vanishes from sight.  We must be careful of how we spend our lives. We are responsible of what we do with that time allotted. How quickly the days, hours, and years pass by. Whatever you do for Christ, do it now.!

David finished his Kingdom mission and has received his reward. Now it’s our turn to continue the journey.  Remember only what you do for Christ for last for all eternity.

So today, make that same decision that David made; to stand for Jesus Christ. We must speak the truth, tell the world about Jesus, and pull people out of the kingdom of darkness.

When’s it all been said and done what kind of legacy will you leave behind?  I pray that mine will be remembered for all eternity! Will yours? David lived his life as an ambassador of Christ.  He finished his race. 

jesus_kingI have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.  2 Timothy 4:7-8
