Acts of the Holy Spirit @ UT


Thanks you for all your prayers! They were felt, and darkness FLED at University of Texas tonight.

I have never been more encouraged in my faith and spirit by what has happened at UT these past 3 days. Tonight, we were rained out, we went into an auditorium, but something in my spirit said "NO" we are meant to preach the GOSPEL in the PUBLIC in the middle of campus, Acts 2 style, when we prayed before the rally I saw us outside praying, signs and wonders breaking out and I knew it was the will of the Holy Spirit to do the evening rally outside even if it meant I preached with only my voice and no microphone.

When we got inside, I asked the crowd, are you willing to go outside tonight? They all cheered back! I knew it was God, we marched more than 300-400 into the middle of campus, you could feel the excitement, freedom and faith. It was a PROPHETIC ACT that CHURCH HAS OFFICIALLY LEFT THE BUILDING!

I preached on Mark 3:13 on how Jesus appointed, anointed and assigned the 12 disciples to a radical lifestyle of passionate love for Jesus, to know how to pray and to walk in divine power. That prayer must move us to action.The night before, the Holy Spirit told me that the final night, the glory of the Lord would be released to a new level and that He would perform signs, wonders and miracles at the preaching of His Word. I saw students praying for students to be healed, and then it happened.

During the response time, more students committed to adopt un-reached pockets of students on campus by planting a simple church among them. The entire crowd once again began to cry out to be filled with the power of the Spirit, then the Holy
Spirit began to give words of knowledge of people and their sicknesses, one by one, people rose their hand confirming they needed a prayer of healing. We had students lay hands on those around them who were sick or oppressed, immediately all over the place students were instantly healed, some were not healed, but many were, what was most encouraging was that the students stepped out in faith, in obedience to Jesus (Luke 10:9, Mark 16:15-18) to heal the sick, trusting God at His Word.

This was a powerful shift, a breakthrough of God's divine power on a secular university campus (2nd largest in nation), this event encounter was a PROPHETIC SIGN POST that we are in a NEW DAY in North America, no more will we depend on the wisdom of men, intellectual arguments, but rather like apostle Paul (1 Cor 2), we will depend on the demonstration of the Holy Spirit and Power! We owe this generation an encounter with God and the resurrection power of the Cross. I'm praying and believing this is just the beginning of a movement of New Testament Christianity in our day once again, that the Book of Acts will not just be Bible stories anymore, but that God would once again show Himself strong by performing signs and wonders at the name of His holy Servant Jesus (Acts 4). That we may declare the mighty acts of God once again in our generation, why not? I am tired of religion, I want reality, I want the reality of heaven on earth.

Something is stirring, another student volunteer missionary movement is being birthed on the shores of North America once again, hundreds of students are committing to be campus missionaries by invading lost pockets of people on campus, we are moving from a "COME" model of ministry to a "GO" model of ministry on this campus and others. Campus ministries and local churches are joining hands as one Church at UT, we are realizing that we are "one Church" called out on mission to reach the lost. A revolution is taking place, the Holy Spirit is being poured out once again, the Lord is preparing an end time army of young people to be apostolic missionaries here in order to be missionaries in the last remaining 6,000 un-reached people groups and nations of the earth and then the end will come! Come Lord Jesus come! Release a NEW AWAKENING on college campuses in America once again for the final great harvest!

Pray for University of Texas tonight and tomorrow, nearly every student tonight committed to share Christ with at least one person in the next 24 hours, may adventures with the Holy Spirit be brought forth, may divine appointments be opened, may the Good News be preached and souls soundly be saved! Release a Jesus revolution Holy Spirit, come in Your power in this day, let God be God. Let the nations be glad, let missions be the sound of our heart once again! Amen.

Pray for me, tomorrow morning I am training the over 200 students who committed to starting simple churches (Authentic Faith Communities) all morning tomorrow, let the Acts of the Holy Spirit be made known once again! Rain down Holy Spirit in power in Austin Texas, rain down on every college and university campus in this nation. Move us from prayer to action. As my friend Pete Greig says, "May we pray like it all depends on God, live like it all depends on us."

change the campus, change the world ~ come Holy Spirit, bring it!
word.

You are one of a kind Jaeson Ma.

May UT be a prototype for the nation.
You remind me of this quote:

"The history of the church is full of such radicals, men and women of no reputation who impacted their respective day by dwelling in the
transcendent realm of Heaven. For the most part, these men were all ahead of the curve -- shadows of what is available to each and every believer. They were fingers pointing not only to Christ Himself, but also to an entire host of men that will one day manifest the glory of God on a corporate level before He returns. Daniel prophesed of this
coming generation of champions who would do great exploits. His words and revelatiosn were sealed until now, but the book is being
opened."

You are part of that book being opened. Thank you for hearing so clearly and obeying so well. You inspire me.

Hey Mr. Jaeson Ma, thanks for coming down to UT Austin and sharing Christ with our campus. God has blessed you with an amazing gift of language and to be an instrument for His voice. My bible study went to Rez Week on Wednesday and we were challenged by how you gave fresh meaning to the Great Commission. After that inspiring sermon given by the Holy Spirit, my girls and I were motivated to act obediently in love and make a staunch decision to listen to God rather than our pride and emotions. And my beautiful sister, Sarah, is deciding to get baptized at the end of the month despite her fears and reservations. Hallelujah!! She also says she now wants to marry a pastor.  But on a side note, it’s funny how you joked about being a holy baby because you remind me of the command to be children of light… light absorbed from God and reflected so all can see God in you. Please visit us again—Texas would love to have you. 

Don't listen to the enemy who can only lie, as he is the author of lies. He can only rob, kill and destroy.

You are amazing. Rest in truth. You are amazing.
