The first night in New York

How can I tell you about what happened last night in New York? Well, to do that I need a new word for ‘breakthrough’. I need a word that describes going from the lowest low to the highest high in just one night.

Why do I say the lowest low? Because it was. I thought Phoenix was our lowest low. In the heat of the warfare there I remember saying, “It can’t get any worse than this!”

Welcome to New York…

On every level New York was more brutal than Phoenix. The lead up to this tent crusade was a kick in the teeth. Every kind of attack that could happen did happen. Satan began to mock me!

Satan told me this crusade was going to fall apart. He reminded me that I said the Blue States—and the cities the American church has written off—will be epicenters of revival. He told me I would be shamed in New York. Then this happened!

The atmosphere inside the Tent was charged with faith. The air was crackling with expectancy. They came from everywhere to be saved and healed— and then Jesus crushed the lies of the enemy!

I preached the Gospel. I attacked the insanity of our culture and commanded them to be saved! Then it happened. An effortless altar call. The hunger for Jesus was so intense that instantly the front filled with lost souls. No wonder Satan fought so hard!

So many faces weeping. A mass of hurting lives being redeemed. There is no other way to describe the glorious collision between Jesus and these desperate souls.

Why do I need another word for breakthrough? Because this was not just an impossible situation—it was a stronghold of demons. Satanists threatened us. The religious spirit in many of the churches was stronger than any we had ever faced.

New York is a prize for the devil and he will not let it go without a vicious fight. But what God did next was emphatic! It helped clarify this Bible verse I have known all my life:

Isaiah 61:1-2, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God…”

It was the word vengeance that I had been looking for. God began to heal bodies with a vengeance!

I saw a man in the back of the Tent. By His mercy, God had me describe in detail a litany of ailments in this man’s body. The details even went as far as to describe mass calcium deposits in the base of his spine. The man waved his arms in the air in vehement agreement.

Then, no longer hunched over, he ran to the front demonstrating his total healing.

It was vengeance, alright. God was not just healing, He was attacking sickness. They burst forth from one end of the Tent to the other. Miracle after miracle.

One lady was slow to respond to the list of things I described in her body. Her husband kept relaying the words to her. Then she abruptly pulled both hearing aids out and waved them frantically in the air! Total healing in her spine, legs, arms, heart and ears!

It would fill a book to tell you all the healings. It is enough to say that the greatest setback boomeranged violently into victory.

It is shocking to see how some of the churches here fought the meeting. Not just shocking but baffling since they would benefit by getting the new converts. Some even staged competing events to discourage our attendance.

Imagine a crusade that is being attacked by the secular media, lukewarm churches, and devil worshippers all at the same time. Yet, for all that resistance the hand of God is strong and continues to astound us.

There is no doubt this is the greatest breakthrough we have seen in New York. But this move of God is not out of the woods. It is still in jeopardy. We need your urgent prayers.

Last night was more than a breakthrough. But tonight, will make or break this crusade. Please pray fervently for pastors to come under conviction. Pray that masses of lost souls will be supernaturally drawn to the Tent. It is now or never. Please, please join us, and pray!
