ARGENTINA 2008 – How do you birth a revival?

It was now five years after receiving three Heavenly Visitations (read here and here) in which the Angel of the Lord had said “I want my Argentinian Revival to move north, the Resistencia Fountain open!” I desperately wanted to give to the Lord what He desired. He wanted it; I wanted to give it to Him, but how? The answer is both profound and extremely simple: “My Father is working until now and I myself am working.” (John 5:17) “Whatever the Father does these things the Son also does in like manner.” (John 5:19c) How do you birth a revival? You see and you obey. I attended a retreat weekend at Saskatchewan Beach when I was 19 years old, in 1973. A 21 year old, named John, spoke a word of God to me (prophesied). He said, “You are like a young child that lets go of his father’s hand and runs ahead and falls down scraping his knee. Then the father comes and picks you up and dusts you off and says ‘My son, …

2006 Argentina – The Black 666

The discovery of Clifford Long and the Resistencia revival of the 1950’s had been accomplished in the September 2005 trip. I returned to Regina, Saskatchewan with great excitement and continued to pray “Lord let your Argentinian Revival move North, the Resistencia Fountain open!” I hoped that we were making progress and that revival annointings would show up, but I knew of no further reason to return to Resistencia.   Alejandro Juszczuk had other plans. Seven months after our first trip Alejandro asked “You come again?” The language barrier (Spanish-English) made it hard for me to know why I would go back, but I respected this man of God and soon my wife Trish and I along with another couple were taking the 11,500 km trip to Resistencia. We arrived in the middle of a Conference. Reyos de Luz church had a a visiting minister, Julio Donati, speaking in a week-long conference. The Regina contingent checked into the same hotel where I had stayed in 2005 , the Covadonga, and then started attending the conference. I was …

RESISTENCIA – The Discovery 2005

Gary, Robin and I had travelled to Resistencia, Argentina to try to discover corroborating evidence of the existence of Clifford Long and a Resistencia Revival. Veto, our driver and interpreter arrived at the hotel to pick us up and I gave instructions to Veto that we needed to go to the oldest area of Resistencia. The building that we were looking for had to be at least 50 years old. I also inquired of Veto whether there was a river that ran thru the northwest of Resistencia. “Yes, he replied, it’s called the Rio Negro.” Veto took us to the old area of town and whenever we saw a building like the one that was described in a prophecy we would ask him to stop, we would get out and I would put my hand on the wall of the building and see if I felt anything. This we did about 4 times, I later found out that Veto thought we were in the movie industry and we were looking for a location to shoot …

ARGENTINA – Ready or not here we come!

The message that I received during my Third Heavenly Visitation was “I WANT MY ARGENTINIAN REVIVAL TO MOVE NORTH – THE RESISTENCIA FOUNTAIN OPEN!” I had no experience in the history of revival and I knew nothing about an Argentinian Revival. My only response was what am I supposed to do? Elizabeth Barrett Browning in her Sonnets from the Portuguese asked a question. “How do I love thee, let me count the ways.” Jesus has loved me, and I love him back and so I wanted to give to him what He desired. When my wife, Trish, comes to me and asks, “Can we go out for supper tonight?” My response is “I can make that happen.” and bless her. The Visitation of 2003 left me praying earnestly “LET YOUR ARGENTINIAN REVIVAL MOVE NORTH – THE RESISTENCIA FOUNTAIN OPEN!” More and more every day this praying (intercession) overtook me and a group of believers. Prayer meetings and services were almost 100% attendance, we were all caught up in this burden from God. I only knew …

2003 – La Tercera Visita Celestial

English Version: 2003 – The Third Heavenly Visitation Después de haber conocido al ángel ( Conquer ) predicador en la primera visita y conquistar en la segunda visita, mi expectativa era que la tercera visita sería similar. Pero no lo fué. Fué mayor en poder y me encontré con un ángel, o alguien de un orden superior que cambió mi destino. Aproximadamente dos semanas después de la visita de Conquer, me desperte en la noche con un poder en mi habitación tan grandioso que me sobresalté de inmediato y comencé a reprender a este ser ” En el nombre de Jes … “ Iba a mandar a éste que saliera de mi habitación. En la mitad de la frase, cerré la boca, metí la cabeza debajo de las sábanas y dije: “Lo siento, ¿qué quieres?” No sé si esto fue el Señor o el Ángel del Señor, pero la respuesta inmediata fue: “¡QUIERO QUE MI RECURSO ARGENTINO SE MUEVA AL NORTE!” Intento en situaciones como esta hacer al menos una pregunta inteligente y por eso …

Visitaciones celestiales 1 y 2

English Version: Heavenly Visitations one and two El Dr. Sam Matthews, de Shawnee, Oklahoma, sirve en International Christian Leadership Connections (ICLC) como miembro de la Compañía Apostólica. Como mencioné en mi artículo anterior, el Dr. Sam había pronunciado esta palabra de RHEMA sobre mí: “Si hablas en lenguas durante tres horas al día durante 30 días, tendrás tres Visitas Celestiales y darás a luz a tu destino”. Completé la obediencia y hablé en lenguas durante tres horas consecutivas al día durante 30 días y luego esperé. No sabía qué pasaría. ¿Cuál es el protocolo adecuado para recibir una Visita celestial y cuáles deberían ser las respuestas? Al principio de mi vida cristiana me enseñaron que si se te aparece un espíritu, debes exigir que diga “Jesús es el Señor”. Esto se deriva de 1 Corintios 12: 3 que dice: “ Por eso les advierto que nadie que este hablando por el Espíritu de Dios puede maldecir a Jesús; Ni nadie puede decir “ Jesús es el Señor “ sino por el Espíritu Santo. “. (NVI) …

Hola mi nombre es Pedro

English version: Hello My Name is Peter Me faltan seis semanas para cumplir 65 años. Nunca he escrito nada sobre mis experiencias. Conocí a Jesús hace 48 años. Cuando era muy joven, mi madre Inglesa casada con un soldado Canadiense, era bastante brava y le daban sus arrebatos regularmente. Le molestaba mucho que uno de mis amigos me llamara Pete. Ella usaba audífonos y había muchas cosas diferentes que no escuchaba, pero siempre parecía escuchar cuando me llamaban Pete. Pete es un nombre corto para referirse a Peter. En Español “ Pedro “. Mi madre gritaba desde donde estuviera y le decía: “¡No le llames así! ¡¡Yo le puse el nombre Peter !! ”Siempre me pareció extraño y un poco embarazoso. Nací de nuevo cuando recibí a Cristo a los 17 años. Empecé a leer la Biblia y fui a ver a mi madre y le pregunté: “¿Por qué te molestas tanto cuando la gente me llama Pete?” Ella explicó, desde un lugar muy profundo de su corazón, que me llamaron Peter, en memoria de …

2003 – The Third Heavenly Visitation

Español: 2003 – La Tercera Visita Celestial After having met the angel Preacher in the First Visitation and Conquer in the Second Visitation my expectation was that the Third Visitation would be similar. It was not. It was greater in power and I encountered an angel, or someone of a higher order that changed my destiny. About two weeks after Conquer had visited I was awakened in the night with a power in my room so great that I was immediately startled and started to rebuke this being “In Jesus na……”. I was going to command this one to get out of my room. Mid-sentence I shut my mouth, put my head under the covers and said “I’m sorry, what do you want?” I do not know if this was the Lord or the Angel of the Lord but the immediate response was “I WANT MY ARGENTINIAN REVIVAL TO MOVE NORTH!” I try in situations like this to get out at least one intelligent question and so I said “Why?” The answer was “They have …

Heavenly Visitations 1 and 2

Español: Visitaciones celestiales 1 y 2 Dr. Sam Matthews, from Shawnee, Oklahoma serves International Christian Leadership Connections (ICLC) as a member of the Apostolic Company. As I mentioned in my previous article, Dr. Sam had spoken this RHEMA word over me, “If you speak in tongues for three hours a day for 30 days you will have three Heavenly Visitations and you will birth your destiny.” I completed the obedience and spoke in tongues for three consecutive hours a day for 30 days and then I waited. I didn’t know what would happen. What is the proper protocol to receive a Heavenly Visitation and what should the responses be? Early in my Christian life I was taught that if a spirit appears to you, you should demand that it says “Jesus is the Lord.” This stems from I Corinthians 12:3 that reads: “Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, ‘Jesus is accursed:’ and no one can say, ‘Jesus is Lord, except by the Holy Spirit.’” I had also …

Hello My Name is Peter

Español: Hola mi nombre es Pedro I am six weeks short of age 65. I have never written anything about my experiences. I met Jesus 48 years ago. When I was very young my rather fiery, English war bride Mother would have regular outbursts. All that it took was for one of my friends to call me Pete. She wore hearing aids and there were many different things she didn’t hear, but, she always seemed to hear when I was called Pete. Mother would yell from wherever she was and say “Do not call him that! I named him Peter!!” I always found it odd and a little embarrassing. I was born again when I was 17. I started reading the Bible and I went to my Mother and asked her “Why do you get so upset when people call me Pete?” She explained, from a very deep place inside of her, that I was named Peter, after the Peter in the Bible. It didn’t matter how old I got, teenager, adult, father of my …
