Pray for Edison Chen, Me and the World

Dear Bros and Sis in Christ,

I have a very urgent and special prayer request. For nearly 2 months now I have not announced publicly, even to my prayer team to protect the confidentiality of the fragile situation I am about to tell you. In February the Holy Spirit led me supernaturally to a special young man named "Edison Chen." He is a famous pop star in Hong Kong and China who recently this year was involved in a internet sex scandal that received worldwide attention. My heart broke for this young man when I heard the news. I prayed for him to find the love of God and the forgiveness that is offered through Jesus Christ. I also prayed that God would use this situation for greater good, somehow to redeem and bless the youth and families of Asia. Through a series of divine circumstances in February God brought me to Edison, I shared the Gospel and God's personal prophetic word to him and Edison gave his life to Christ. His heart was genuine, his repentance was true, and I was so happy to see a new brother find God's forgiveness, mercy and grace. God truly loves Edison. The days after, many others in his family and circle of friends came to know Christ. It was a supernatural experience, that only God could orchestrate.

Yesterday night, I found out that one of the largest secular magazines in Hong Kong/Asia had caught wind of Edison's conversion and wrote a front page story on our friendship. I was very much in shock to hear about this because I had not spoken about this publicly for nearly 2 months. I was more surprised when my contact in Hong Kong told me the article was 100% positive, shared about my own conversion experience, my personal ministry and how Edison is starting a new life and new path in Christ. Honestly, when I heard this news knowing that millions all over Asia would read this uplifting article and possibly find Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, I wept.

I wept with joy for Edison and all the millions in Asia who have been negatively effected by the sin & immorality that was spread. I knew God was restoring Edison, a prodigal son who had returned to his heavenly Father. I wept, because God spoke to me when I met Edison that He would bring greater good from this scandal than evil. That what Satan meant for evil, God would turn for good. I am thankful to God because I know millions who read this magazine will see that God has forgiven Edison Chen and all the victims, showing them His love and mercy. Therefore, those who read this article after realizing that God has forgiven Edison, will also realize that Jesus can forgive their sins and give them hope for a new life in Christ. Please pray that God uses this testimony to bless the masses with the power of the Gospel. Good News is spreading in Asia, Jesus died on the cross and resurrected on the third day so our sins could be forgiven and anyone who believes in Him will not die, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)

Now I ask you for prayer. Edison Chen, the Victims and myself need your prayers more than ever before.

Please pray for Edison Chen and others...

1. Pray for protection from media pressure: There is a lot of pressure with an public article like this to perform as a Christian. Please pray that people realize Edison and others who have become Christian are still a work in progress. As I am a work in progress myself. No one is perfect, we are all human and we all need love and forgiveness. God doesn't expect us to be perfect, but to trust in His mercy and grace. Pray that God would protect this story and situation against gossip, accusation or deception, but only the truth of Jesus Christ would continually be uplifted in the media.

2. Please pray millions of Christians around the world would pray for Edison, his family, the victims to be strengthened in faith, comforted and restored to be a testimony to society in a positive way. Pray that the many victims of this situation would also find faith and forgiveness in Christ.

3. Pray that many who read this article and story would be saved. Pray that those who read this testimony of Edison's repentance and faith in Christ, my own personal testimony will realize that God loves them also, that they can be forgiven of their sins and have a new life in Jesus Christ. Pray as they realize God has forgiven Edison, He will also forgive them.

4. Pray that my family and I would be a great testimony for Christ. Please pray that God would protect and help me and my family in America and Hong Kong to be good witnesses for Christ. I am returning to Hong Kong in May for ministry and I need God's wisdom in how to talk about this story to others so that they see Christ and not me or anyone else. May He keep me, Edison and all others humble, so that we decrease but Christ would increase.

5. Ask God to turn what was meant for evil into good. Pray that through this scandal, that greater good would come out of this than evil. Pray that millions will be inspired, touched and put their faith in Jesus Christ across the world. This scandal was probably one of the biggest news stories in Asia in the last decade, many were adversely affected, but God now can turn the tide and bring hope and healing to all the world and turn tragedy into triumph!

Lastly, I just really want you all to keep this low key and simply "pray" if you read this. Pray for Edison, he is like a brother to me. I love him and he has a good heart. Many people will try to ridicule or doubt what has happened, but it doesn't matter because I know him and he is not only truly repentant, but he is doing his best to become a better man, change his ways, and live for God. He is a good person. We all make mistakes. I urge the public who reads this, judge not or you will be judged as the Bible says. Forgive Edison, the victims and ask God to forgive your own sins, because none of us are perfect and we all need Jesus forgiveness. Edison is a good man, God loves him, knows his heart is truly sorry and will restore him to be a great role model in society. I know it, I have faith not only for him but for all who are affected by this. Pray for Edison's spiritual restoration. Because t's not easy, Edison, his family, his friends and myself are all God's work in progress and we need prayers, patience, mercy and grace from everyone to not point the finger, gossip or anything else, but to simply pray asking God to make us more like Christ each day and to be a testimony for Him in this generation. May God receive all the glory in this.

God is faithful. Please pray right now for God's will to be done. Thank you!

Under the mercy,


For anyone who read this blog post and you don't know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, but you want to know Him. You want to repent and be forgiven of your sins then read what the Good News of Jesus is all about here

Supernatural Word of Knowledge Released Again!

Update: Lakeland Revival Intensifies
Twice daily meetings in Lakeland, Fla., move into fourth straight week of revival. Starting Apr. 24, the meetings are being moved to Auburndale Life Church about 10 miles from Lakeland.
Update: Lakeland Revival Intensifies
[04.22.08] Thousands of people longing for a physical or spiritual touch from God are flocking to central Florida for ongoing revival meetings that some have dubbed the “Lakeland Healing Outpouring.”
The services, which are being broadcast live daily on GOD TV to millions of potential viewers, reveal the excitement radiating from this area of the Sunshine State, prompting some people to jump on planes and fly in from across the country and even from abroad.
Todd Bentley, the 32-year-old Canadian healing evangelist with a boyish grin responsible for the meetings, reported on Friday that people’s faith alone has healed them even while they were booking their flights online or boarding planes bound for Lakeland, a city of about 90,000 between Orlando and Tampa along Interstate 4.
The 700-seat sanctuary of host pastor Stephen Strader’s Ignited Church can no longer contain the crowds. More than 1,000 worshipers stood inches apart at Friday night’s service, jamming every aisle and altar area. Their bodies rocked back and forth, and their faces wore peace-filled, lovesick and euphoric expressions.
The cars parked outside were also inches apart, with every grassy parcel of land on bordering properties used for overflow. During worship, song lyrics on PowerPoint were replaced with a warning to drivers parked at a nearby store that their cars would be “towed immediately.”
“We are all shocked that each night a minimum of 60 percent [are] first time [visitors],” Strader said yesterday.

My friends just got back from Lakeland Florida and were describing the incredible level of anointing and the amazing creative miracles that were taking place through supernatural words of knowledge. People were being healed of cancers, diseseases, chronic disorders and the list goes on through specific words of knowledge being called out over specific people. Praise Him! I believe the Holy Spirit is restoring the fullness of the Word of Knowledge gift to the Body of Christ to woo and encounter an unbelieving generation to the power of God. The healing angels in the days of the latter rain are being released again at this hour but this is just the beginning. We will begin to see God raise up prophets as evangelists again who will share God's revelation and words with the lost turning them to the risen Savior by the masses, in massive gatherings and on the streets. I would encourage all of you to watch the nightly meetings at 7pm eastern timeto receive an impartation of this healing revival at...




We've been watching them in my room with my family and friends and the Holy Spirit has been pouring out through the computer screen. Acts 2 once again Lord. All it takes is a simple hunger for His presence and God will answer. Do it again!

Supernatural Outpouring of Holy Spirit in Florida!

Tomorrow my senior Pastor Che Ahn and others are heading to Lakeland, Florida. For nearly 3 weeks now what started as a 4 day conference has turned into an unprecedented outpouring of the Holy Spirit with signs, wonders and creative miracles breaking out. Todd Bentley has been leading the daily and nightly meetings and thousands are packing the church from everywhere. Secular press has caught wind of the revival and it's spreading. In my spirit, I for sensed last night while me and a few brothers were praying at the Azusa St. Mission in downtown LA where the baptism of the Holy Spirit was poured out in 1906 to hundreds of millions worldwide, that something similar to what is happening in Florida is about about to break out in Los Angeles California, near the downtown area or somewhere in Socal...I can sense it in my spirit and feel it in my bones. Pray, fast and seek the Lord while He may be found...read below, JMA

Revival Fever Breaks Out in Florida
In Lakeland, Fla., thousands are packing a church every night for the past two weeks looking for a taste of what could be a major spiritual outpouring.

Revival Fever Breaks Out in Florida
[04.16.08] Meeting in a converted storefront on a highway in Lakeland, Fla., thousands are packing a church every night for the past two weeks looking for a taste of what could be a major spiritual outpouring.

Pockets of the Christian community in this area and beyond are buzzing over what could be compared with the early meetings revivalist Rodney Howard-Brown held here 15 years ago at Carpenter’s Home Church two miles down the road.

With an almost palpable sense of expectation hanging in the meetings, wild stories of healings have been lighting up the blogosphere, from reports of permanent scars disappearing off bodies to tumors disintegrating in stomachs.
Word of the meetings has spread across the globe via GOD TV’s live Web stream, and will air live on the network every night this coming weekend.

If hunger, as in the outpourings in Toronto and Pensacola during the 1990s, is a characteristic of revival, then believers here appear starved. “I’m just here for the presence of the Lord,” said one young man last night.
In loud heart-crying worship, one song lyric in particular—“healing is the bread of your children”—has become an anthem of the meetings being held in Lakeland by Todd Bentley, a Canadian revivalist and founder of Fresh Fire Ministries.

The stocky tattooed minister called out various ailments and diseases for several hours last night. Clusters of the more than 1,000 feverish believers responded to his words of knowledge, and later claimed healing.

A young teenaged girl testified the lump on her neck had disappeared. A woman with osteoarthritis of the knees kicked the air and ran across the stage. Several people declared hearing for the first time out of deaf ears.

“We’re still hungry,” the crowd worshiped, “we’re receiving, there’s got to be more, got to be more, got to be more.”
One five-year-old boy named Corey, accompanied by his parents, wanted prayer for his heart, which was irregular since infancy. His mother said it beat three times faster than normal, “like a washing machine under his skin” to the touch, she said.

As Bentley prayed, the boy swayed softly, eyes closed, eventually drifting into what appeared to be a trance-like state. Several minutes later Bentley asked the boy what he was feeling, but he was unresponsive.

“Are you there? Can you hear me?” Bentley said, snapping his fingers by the boy’s ears. “Hello? Hello? Can you hear me?”

The expression on the child’s face was as if he had disappeared. A man in the congregation shouted: “He’s in heaven! He’s getting a new heart!”

Standing behind his son, the boy’s father began weeping. “I think he’s in heaven,” Bentley whispered.
When he finally opened his eyes the boy’s mother held him, cried over him, and joyfully reported to the large crowd that her son’s heartbeat was now normal. “This is the first time it doesn’t beat like that pitter patter!” she said.
The current situation in Lakeland is apparently traceable to April 3, when Todd Bentley says an angel visited him. He was in Lakeland for one of his normal itinerant conferences scheduled from April 2-6.

He said the encounter wrecked his plans. Bentley cancelled his global itinerary and extended the meetings at Stephen Strader’s Ignited Church to daily daylong events. He said the meetings would continue at least through the end of April. —Paul Steven Ghiringhelli in Lakeland, Fla.

Love is a Movement - Find your 10

To everyone reading my blog, I'm asking you to get on board with the Bella 10 Movement. After, helping to mobilize for this movie in the box office, I knew I had to keep helping this film save more lives. Here is our chance. This movie has already kept 13 women from aborting their children, countless of others whom we do not know of may have decided to also not abort their children and others as well took up courage to adopt an unwanted child.

God put it on my heart that this movie could save thousands of precious lives for years to come if we would simply buy the DVD and give it to family and friends as gifts to watch, in order to change their hearts on the sanctity of life. It's so easy, because it's already an amazing & beautiful film. The #1 rated film by users on Yahoo, Fandango and Rotten Tomatoes in 2007. Here is our goal...

Mobilize 10,000 to buy the DVD and recruit 10 others to do the same by May 6th (DVD release date). If we can hit this mark, then those 100,000 will in turn recruit 10 more each and we will have spread the message of Bella into 1 million homes. Imagine how many lives can be changed by watching this movie?

Go to our new Bella 10 Campaign site & sign up to become a Bella Champion:


Get inspired, get this movie into the hands of every person you know cause it can literally save lives. Send the link to the site, send this email to everyone you know, let's do this for the unborn and for those who need a family.

Some of you have heard about MTV new show "Rock the Cradle" It's like American Idol, only each of the contestants are the children of major rock stars and music artists (Bobby Brown, Olivia Newton John, The Eagles, etc) It's actually a very entertaining and intriguing show.

One of the contestants is Akeiba Burrell the daughter of MC Hammer. Most people don't know, but MC Hammer has been a spiritual father, mentor and inspiration to me for nearly 10 years. I started working with Hammer at the age of 19 running and managing media projects. Through the years we have become very close, almost like father and son, but in a spiritual dynamic. He has taught me so much in what it means to be a man of God, how to impact and transform society and really just how to be real God and man. I have so much love and respect for this man for who he is and what he has accomplished for the Lord.

His daughter Akeiba is an amazing young woman. When I first met her she was only 12 years old or so. Today, she is a student at the University of Texas, incredibly beautiful, smart and talented. Did I mention she loves Jesus? Well, I'm writing this blog so that you can all become her fans by supporting her on the MTV website for "Rock the Cradle" she will need all our support as she shines her God given gift to sing every week to millions around the world.

Go to this site to vote: http://www.iamonmtv.com/rockthecradle

I'm proud of you Akeiba! Keep doing what you do best! Live, love and be your amazing self! Show a sista sum luv!!!

4 Keys to Becoming a Strong Disciple

Dear Bros and Sis,

I pray each of you will grow into strong and mature disciples of Jesus Christ by keeping these 4 key Biblical principles below active in your life. This is what the early Christians committed to in the New Testament and the Church grew in power and their lives changed the world. We must also commit to the below. I have done the four following things in my life since I was born again 10 years ago, and by practicing these four keys I have become a stronger and stronger disciple of Jesus Christ.

Note, the main key as my friend Steve pointed out to me is that these four keys can not be fulfilled by our own power or commitment, it is only as we daily are reminded of the forgiveness and love of Jesus Christ that overcomes all our sin and shame, that we can grow in our love for Him and do His will. We love Him because He first loved us. As we meditate upon the fact that Jesus enjoys us in our weakness, brokenness and failures, we will become more and more confident in His love. The revelation of His passion for us, releases within us a passion in our hearts for Him. He who has been forgiven much, loves much. Let all our commitment and devotion to Jesus be centered upon the finish work He has accomplished for us on the Cross!

"And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers." Acts 2:42

1. Pray Continually

Talk to God and let God talk to you. Everyday, every moment, pray continually. Find a specific time daily to be quite and pray with the Holy Spirit. Then talk to the Holy Spirit and listen to His voice throughout the day.

2. Love & Live the Word of God

Be committed to studying God's word like your life depended on it. Without it, we cannot know God's will. All success goes back to how obedient we are to knowing and doing God's will found in His Scriptures. Love the Word and Do it!

3. Share Christ w/ Someone Daily

Everyday, ask God to give you the opportunity to share the Gospel with someone. Look for open doors to share the Gospel with everyone you meet.

4. Fellowship with other Believers

You must be committed to a local church. People are like elevators they either take you up or take you down. You must be consistently in fellowship with other disciples of Christ in order to be held accountable, to be encouraged and to grow in your walk.

If you practice these 4 keys daily and continually in your life, I guarantee you that you will grow into a strong disciple of Jesus Christ. Ultimately, we must all be surrendered to His Lordship and follow Him at whatever the cost. Amen.

A prayer a friend sent me recently, let it challenge and inspire you to pursue Christ with your all.

The Wesleyan Covenant Prayer

I am no longer my own, but yours.
Put me to what you will, rank me with whom you will.
Put me to doing, put me to suffering.
Let me be employed for you or laid aside for you,
exalted for you or brought low for you.
Let me be full, let me be empty.
Let me have all things, let me have nothing.
I freely and heartily yield all things to your pleasure and disposal.
And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
You are mine, and I am yours.
So be it.
And the covenant which I have made on earth,
let it be ratified in heaven.
