Your Message Encourages, Challenges, and Propels Us Forward
May 14, 2013
I was recently in Wooster and was so blessed by your ministry. The Glory fills the room as you speak - it just gets very bright. So cool. Your message encourages, challenges and propels us forward into all that God has and a person leaves changed. Thank you for your commitment to excellence and for just loving people.
Impartation and Healing
Apr 5, 2013
When you ministered at Van Nest on March 8th, 2013, I received not only the impartation I asked of God but also the healing in my lower back that you called out. I haven't had any more agonizing pain that disabled my walking. Thank you for your sensitivity to the Spirit of God.
Physical and Financial Miracles
Mar 5, 2013
I attended a meeting about 4 weeks ago (Feb. 9) with some very specific questions and physical needs. I was desperate and EXPECTING God to show up. Matt addressed the rampant depression and fear creeping into the church regarding the political and economic state of the U.S. He challenged us to invest in GOD'S economy, and that when we do, He will impart the Joseph anointing upon us! God wants to overflow the storehouses of the church so we are in position to usher the lost into the spiritual and physical freedom and abundance of our Father's kingdom. I felt the Lord prompt me to sow $100 that night, which far exceeded my single mom budget! Four days later, I received a check in the mail for $1,000-HALLELUJAH!! God had laid it on the heart of someone I know to not only bless me financially, but to dictate a love letter to me from Jesus! Let me tell you, the money was amazing, but NOTHING compares to Jesus whispering "sweet nothings" in your ear - NOTHING!! And if that wasn't enough, Matt said God wanted to heal someone's neck and right hip. The week before, my doctor urged me to get an x-ray of my upper neck and had concerns about my right hip. I've suffered with constant neck pain for many years. Massage and chiropractic offered no relief. The next morning I woke up without pain and could no longer feel that big knot on my neck!! I don't know what was going on with my hip, but apparently God doesn't want me to waste one more second worrying about it. GOD IS SO AWESOME! May God richly bless you ALL at Matt Sorger Ministries!

As I web-streamed the MSM conference this past weekend, the sense of the Lord's presence was streaming also! I was so amazed when the Lord spoke to me directly, "This is for you!" when Stacey C. began to speak a Word of Knowledge for the healing of a heart emotionally and physically. I had been having symptoms of physical heart problems over the last couple months and also have been in a grieving period over the loss of a grandchild. I thought I was improving, so I when I heard the Lord say that this was for me, I wasn't sure I heard Him right. Then as Stacey spoke with the woman, the woman was crying and revealed she was grieving over the death of her granddaughter and had heart problems. I didn't doubt that God was speaking any longer! I began to weep and my daughter, who was in another room, also began to cry and came to listen to the healing words that Stacey spoke. Truly, the prayer was healing for both of us emotionally, and my physical symptoms disappeared. I continue to be overwhelmed by HIS love and care for us. I am grateful for another life-impacting MSM conference that hosts His marvelous presence!
Glory of God spoken over me
Nov 21, 2012
I was at the Great Lakes Encounter at the Cleveland Ohio Airport Marriott when you called me out regarding a breaker annointing. I came forward and you spoke over me that the Glory of God was going to come on me in the next couple of days randomly. Well, it has and it still is coming upon me as it is right now. I was at our women's ministry meeting on Sunday night and the Glory of God was on me so strong that when I merely took the hands of my sister she was overcome and almost fell back, she could hardly speak and was filled with God's presence. I am in the process of starting a Single Parents Ministry at my church, Willow Praise Church in Willowick, OH. Next month will be our second meeting and I am expectantly excited to see how God will move!! Praise God for your ministry!!! Many Blessings, ~Shirley Rappach-Criteser

I just attended the Limitless conference over the weekend and wanted to share a testimony. During one of the offering collections, Matt was speaking about what the offerings obtained are applied to and how they bless others via the different things MSM is currently involved in. I planted a seed and during the prayer, Matt prayed for unexpected money, inheritance, and lost money to come forward. When I got home on Sunday and opened my mailbox, I received a check that I had no idea was coming to me! I was at a loss for words but the Lord reiterated to me that he blesses the faithful. I shared what had happened with my church family and on Tuesday night. Me tee, who had attended the conference with me, comes up to me and says me too. When I asked her what was she speaking of, she told me that she went home on Sunday and found that she received an unexpected check in the mail as well. I would say that we both experienced God moments.

Hi Matt Sorger!! First, I would like to say thank you for stopping to say hello to me, my moother, sister and friend it blessed us very much. Next, I just want to tell you how very anointed your book and CD area were at the Melville, Limitless Conference. I and the others with me felt the angels presence near your books, cds and dvd area. It was wonderful! ( I am writing on behalf of all who were with me) Finally, I just want you to know how much we were all blessed. My mother Louise was impacted the most. She said she is forever changed. She was slain in the spirit for about 40 minutes and while on the floor she felt the Holy Spirit vibrating her throat to her chest area. When she got up she could not speak other than to speak in tongues. She said today she has felt an electricity flowing through her body. I went to see her and she is glowing with the light of Christ and is extra sensitive to the Holy Spirit. Speaking in tongues and much more. We could only attend the Friday, 2:00 session but wished we had gone to the whole conferecne. Anyway, we are so looking forward to your April conference "Glory Conference" in Farmingville, NY ( is that correct???????)Lord bless you and keep you safe in all your travels.

Amazing touch of God
Oct 17, 2012
I went to Sydney this past weekend with my son. We had an amazing time under Matt's ministry. Saturday prior to the session I had a message from South Africa that my mother needed to go for an emergency operation. I send a message to her to say that I will send prayer requests for a miracle and that I would stand in the gap at Matt's session.During worship I felt a breakthrough for my mother.I was also standing in the gap for a teenager with a kidney disease and for 3 things I was diagnosed with. I was amazed when Matt mentioned the 5 conditions during his session. I felt a touch with each one. Feedback is I am symptom free, my mother is being discharged without an operation and the teenagers test is normalizing. My mother also had strangers coming to her hospital bed to pray and bring a Word to her. She is amazed because she is more used to the Dutch reformed church. She is in awe because she said she never realized how much God loved her until now. The best was I also couldn't stay for Sunday nights session but as I was praying with my family at home joy came over me and I was on the floor for 2 hrs filled with laughter and totally drunk in the spirit. It was awesome.God bless.

Hello Matt, When you were in Omaha, NE on September the 20th at Lord of Host Church, I was praying for my night blindness to be healed. As I was praying I saw and heard 2 shutters click twice. Since I live in Lincoln about 50 miles from Omaha driving could be dangerous for me a night. During the conference I brought my granddaughter and her friend up for a concert and driving home I had no problem seeing the road - God is good and your ministry is very powerful and you are a dynamic vessel. God Bless you Mightly. In Him LaRae Eifert

Man of God Thank you for the impartation at Omaha Nebraska. My lower back was hurting and after, after the laying of hand it was gone. Praise God man of God Like prophet Matt.
Learning how to remain in worship
Sep 10, 2012
I have been wanting to remain longer in the presence of God and in worship. Thank you for the wonderful teaching and impartation we received in Atlanta in August! In the past, when I have been in a certain place of deep worship with God, His presence seemed to lift if I tried to talk or even sing! I didn't understand why, but now I realize in those moments, God just wants me to be quiet and enjoy Him, spirit to spirit, letting Him minister to me. His presence has remained nearly unbroken with me for hours now. This is such an incredible breakthrough! Thank you so much for your walk before God and for sharing such precious truths with others.
Thanks to the Lord and His Servant
Aug 22, 2012
Matt, I wanted to thank you for the healing I received from the Lord...though I have not ever had that kind of work before other than I have been been in the Spirit with a group of my dancer/believer friends in LA where I first had the burning healing of the spirit. I cannot thank you enough for the healing work in my body, but of course, it actually ultimately is the Lord. Since the healing I have had such peace, and been having great talks with Him though I have had this since I was a child. I hope you know how thankful I am to the Lord, but the servant as well. I am just thankful to have been saved and been born into a strong covenant family of the Lord. That is why your work and others is so important for those who may be saved later on. Ultimately, it's His Grace...I claim and fully rejoice in the fact that it's only His Grace...psalm 32:1,2. Praise God!
A Gift To Treasure From God
Aug 6, 2012
I watch God TV often and was so drawn to Matt and how powerful his words are just through the TV so I was really excited about his trip to the UK. I went to see him at Chiswick Church this morning at 11am and as I expected it was an amazing experience, but I didn't anticipate how amazing it would be. I was no longer in control of my own body, the hurt and pain that I have held in for many years just exploded within me and tears just came flooding out non stop, he came over and literally blew me back into my chair. The intense power that came into the room was mind blowing and I will never forget it. While I was in tears a woman who I have never met (I have never been to that church before as I live about 50 minutes drive away) came over with a note and said that she had been given these words from God to pass to me, the note said 'God will restore the years the locusts have eaten!' she then kissed me on the cheek and walked away. Obviously this made me cry even more, it felt so pure and beautiful and was such a gift to treasure from God. I thank Matt for every word that he said, for the feelings and the healing that through God's will, he provided. I have so much respect for all that you guys do and I will pray for you all and wish you so many best wishes for your Africa trip.
Keep doing what you're doing as you are saving people all over the world every day!!
God Bless you all and Matt, thank you for opening the door so simply that I have spent years trying to figure out, you turned the light switch on for me.

Hi Matt, My name is Candy Moscu and I would like to write a short note and share how your ministry impacted and changed my life.. It all began last year when I came to the conference you did in my hometown, Sacramento, CA. The conference was during the Pentecost celebration. Knowing that, I spent a lot of time before hand in prayer and in the Word. That weekend, when you started ministering to people, you singled me out by saying that a deliverance anointing is coming upon me and it was so, because I was on the floor shaking like I was being electrocuted by high voltage power, that was the 1st time in my life I felt such power. Lot's of things changed, I've experienced a freedom so great on so many levels, I didn't know such freedom existed!! Oh, how my life changed... Fast forward one year. I've got the email that you're coming to Sacramento again, and for a whole month, prior to your coming, I've prayed about 2-3h each morning, preparing in prayer, reading the Word and just hanging out with the Holy Ghost. I've developed an intimate relationship with Him and time flies when one spends time with their best friend.. When the weekend that you were here came, I could not shake off the feeling that the Lord was on to something, I could clearly sense motion in the spirit realm. I absolutely enjoyed your humor, revelation, wisdom, openness, transparency and how in tune you are with the Holy Ghost, it shows! But when you minister Matt, I have to stay away, because I am not able to stand on my two feet because my legs won't cooperate with me, they act like they have their own mind and it seems that hugging the floor is the only thing I manage to do. My friends, who come to the conference with me, noticed too! Last year was the same and this year was no better... Because of my inability to contain the power that flows through you, I stay in my seat and put a demand on your anointing from there... You did 4 sessions this year in Sacramento. During the 2nd session, most of the church went forward but 3-4 people who stayed in their seats, I was one of them. While bathing in the presence of God, this particular man, who is an elder in that church (which is not my home church), came and put a purple flag over my body and head, when he did that, I literally felt the heaviness of the presence of God on me. I was stunned, because I knew what just happened... You see Matt, about a year and a half ago, while praying with a group of people, I had this vision with the Lord, He was in the streets ministering to people...when the people who had very dirty and ripped dresses on, would give their lives to Him, He would give them another brand new white dress and then the people would sit down at His feet listening to Him talk. After a short while, some would get up and leave, others would come, but I was so fascinated by Jesus, that after I got my new dress, I stayed put at His feet and absorbed every word He said. I saw how some people didn't care and just walked away, others didn't even stop even though He personally interacted with all of them... After a while, only a small group of people remained and they would not go away. Next, I saw Jesus motion His hand and all of a sudden, from thin air an angel appeared with some big rectangular boxes in his hand. The Lord reached and pulled out a very nice dark red/burgundy mantle and gave it to a lady who was sitting on the ground, then He gave two more to two more people... Then He motioned His hand again and another angel came, this one had dark blue mantles that the Lord imparted to a few people then Jesus motioned his hand again and a 3rd angel came and this one had 2 boxes, the Lord looked at me and called me forward and gave me a PURPLE mantle, I knew this one had more authority than the other two, then He called this other young man, who I knew was a prophet and gave him one..After the vision was over, I heard the Holy Ghost tell me that this is a great time to ask for a mantle because the Lord gives them freely and easier than ever in the history... I told the group of people I was praying with and they were all fascinated and rejoiced! So, when this man, Rick Young is his name, put that purple flag on me, I knew exactly what happened and I was in utter awe! At the end of the service, I passed by him and as I was exiting said: "thank you sir, for the mantle!" he looked at me, smiled and said: "the Lord told me to put it on you and He said that you would know what it means". Wow! Wow! Wow! I have to add, that as I was leaving, I saw this other black lady with a purple flag in her hands, she was holding it close to her body.. Rick, later told me that the Lord instructed him to put one on her too...(We talked over the phone a couple weeks after the conference).. So driving home, my logical mind kicked in, so I decided in the next service, Sunday a.m, to go and ask Rick why he chose ME and not somebody else....So the next day, I bumped into him in the lobby and after I introduced myself and reminded him that I'm the one he put the mantle on last night, I looked him straight in the eyes and asked: "Sir, why did you put that mantle on me and not on somebody else??" He said without wavering: "The Lord instructed me to and He told me you would know exactly what it means", same answer, and I sensed he was saying the truth. Told him my vision and he was very encouraged. Later on, (Sunday a.m) when you ministered again, he came and put a purple piece of material on my head and said: "this is for you to keep" and the power of God almost knocked me out again, I was glad I was sitting.. Sunday night is when the Holy Ghost confirmed to me what happened, by also using you... and that night became the most important night of my life, Sunday, June 3rd, 2012. Matt, you preached and were on fire...when the anointing comes on you, your whole demeanor changes, did you know that?? I've learned to recognize it but also sense it...you said: "let's go into ministry time", or something like that and then, after you looked over the entire church, you turned to the black lady who got the other purple flag and then to me and asked us to come forward...we were the very first ones you called forward...wow! When you pointed your finger towards me, 500V of electricity came into me and I fell down like a rock and could not move, I heard you say, "bring her forward", I remember 2 guys dragging me in front, when you pointed to me again and said, "Revival Fire", my body started to shake so uncontrollably and violently, I hit the floor and was there for the next 2h. What happened next, was out of this world, literally, I left my body and I don't remember anything from the service. I saw a big throne with a big light in it and a voice coming out of it, telling me how much He loves me, saw the Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit. I got to be immersed in the Love of the Holy Trinity in a supernatural way! Wow, wow, wow! Occasionally, I would come into my body and sense something like a very heavy blanket over me, I literally could not move a finger, it's like I was pinned to the floor. A long time has passed and I started praying for strength so I could get up and go to my seat. Eventually, a man helped me sit up and then, after 10 more min, I was able to stand and with help go to my seat. When I got there, this guy that was sitting behind me said to me kinda loud: "Wow, I saw what happened to you!!" barely being able to turn my head, I said: "Tell me, please!" and what he told me next, totally amazed me... He said that the second you pointed your finger towards me and asked me to come forward, he saw a heavenly portal open above me, like a white hole in the ceiling, and this high rank angel come through it, then the angel touched me on the shoulder and such power went into my body, I fell down instantly and so did he and his wife who were sitting behind me, this guy said that he did not experience anything like that before... The next day when I talked to a couple of friends, husband and wife that I invited to the conference, he told me that when I fell down, he tried to help me get up, but he got so zapped by the power that was in me, he fell down, Matt, I am a shy, introverted person that doesn't do courtesy falls, I do not throw myself on the floor like that, I'm a very cerebral girl..., actually, it's only when you and John Kilpatrick touched me that I fell and shook, never ever before that, and I've been to many conferences and ALWAYS go forward for ministry time, always... So, the Lord used Rick Young to put a physical mantle on me and used Matt Sorger to activate it! Do you know that I'm undone by the love of God?? How can anyone be the same?? See how the Lord is using you, awesome man of God that you are!?!? I know this letter got a bit lengthy, but I really wanted to tell you all this, so you will be encouraged and know that the Lord does mighty things through you and this is one example. But I saved the best part for last... Matt, ever since that night, I continued to meet with the Lord every morning in my garden and I still spend a couple hours with Him. In June, here in Sacramento, it can be a bit chilly, 55-58 degrees in the a.m., so I wear my thick bathrobe...Monday morning, as I was praying and worshiping the Lord in my backyard, I felt my palms get really hot, didn't pay much attention only when they also got really tingly...Matt when I took them out of my pockets and looked at my palms, they were fully covered with GOLD DUST, my jaw hit the floor and could not speak...Do you know that EVERY SINGLE DAY since June 3rd, my hands are covered with gold dust? For over a month now... It's a normal thing and love it. I do NOT take it for granted and never will...This happens several times a day also, one time I had my phone with me and I took a picture, it can be seen quite clearly, I'll see if I can attach it. Two days later took another picture..I sent it to a couple of close friends and they in awe. What an extraordinary God we serve!!! I'm in such awe of His loving kindness, my heart loves the Lord more than anything in this world. A healing anointing was activated, word of knowledge, also sometimes I see in the people's bodies, last night I prayed with a friend in the park til 1am and I saw that her thyroid and voice box were off inside her throat, I asked her if she has issues there and she said yes, prayed and and I saw how it healed, my friend said she felt heat in her throat area. We held hands and prayed and my hands got hotter than ever, they get hot when I pray over people, but last night they were on fire! I'm sure bacon would've cooked in my palms, My friend opens her eyes and she saw the hands of Jesus over ours, that's the reason they were on fire!! Then, after I continued to pray in tongues, totally prompted by the Spirit, she started interpreting my tongues and she translated the most incredible prayer one can utter, I had no idea I was praying such things, it was a prayer for myself and I was declaring some phenomenal things over my life by the Spirit... Matt, the Holy Ghost is indeed genius and has our best interest and helps us get the best gifts from the Father, He takes my breath away with His amazing care, wow, wow! We spent about 5h in prayer but felt like half h...such amazing time, wow! Another healing testimony from 2 weeks ago.., I met with 2 of my friends so we can pray, one of them is 4mo pregnant and during prayer, the Holy Ghost opens my eyes and I look in her belly and I see that the baby, the fetus is sick, I saw the head and the spinal cord in black, I was amazed, I asked the Holy Ghost what's wrong with the baby and He said, it has autism, she is carrying a handicapped child, I asked Him if I can tell my friend and the Holy Ghost said yes, but tell her not to fear because the baby will be healed. So, I did tell her and the baby inside her curled up and became hard as a rock and it went to the left side of the belly, her belly also started to be very painful. My friend has been very, very sick during this pregnancy every single day since she became pregnant, many days she could not even get out of bed, we would pray for her that she can come to prayer and it was the only reason she could make it. She has 3 other kids and knows the difference in pregnancies, with this one she sensed something wrong.. I anointed her with oil, laid my hands on the belly and asked the Lord to perform a miracle and I saw with my eyes wide open how the brain of the baby untwisted and the spinal cord rearranged and the blackness disappeared! The best part is that she felt the heat inside the tummy and how the baby was turning and how it totally calmed down...she was also shaking uncontrollably...she was healed on the spot, because she wrote an email 3-4 days later telling me that "the all day sickness" and exhaustion is gone and she is sleeping 9h a day versus 4-5 and she is full of energy and the joy of the Lord and was able to clean the whole house without being tired. To this day she is totally ok. So, when you post on FB and share your joy about how the Lord is using you to deliver and heal, I know exactly how it feels. Being and extension of Jesus' hands here on earth, is the highest honor and nothing here on earth can bring this kind of joy, I know, I know. Matt, your ministry does change lives, mine is one of them. The Lord has used you to propel me into my destiny. I have this great call upon my life and I know I have to cultivate this anointing and walk in utmost purity, integrity and holiness. I pledged allegiance to the Lord and there is no turning back. There is nothing the world can offer me, it never enticed me anyway, since I was a child I felt the hand of God over my life even in the communist Romania that I grew up... I'm telling you, I'm ready to do great damage to the kingdom of hell. God bless you, you're part of my testimony, one day I'll be able to tell everyone that it was this young minister named Matt Sorger that the Lord used to baptize me with His Holy Fire, Revival Fire and impart a healing anointing to me. Happy Birthday! I pray the Lord upgrades your anointing and gives you all the gifts of the Spirit! Sincerely, Candy
Thank You for Your Teachings
Jun 29, 2012
I don't know how to thank you enough for sharing your teachings and prophetic anointing and giftings with us at The Tabernacle! (Plus, Pastor Tommy Reid absolutely loved you too!) In every service, you gave me words of encouragement and prophetic words that were truly a confirmation of what the Lord has been showing me in dreams, visions and His prophetic voice speaking to me in the spirit. I purchased your CD series on Receiving the Mantels on your life and I've only listened to 2 of them so far but each one has touched my life in a huge way since for the past 6 months, I know that the Lord has put several strong mantles on me and I've never really been taught what to do with them and how to handle them in a Godly manner. Thanks so much Matt for walking in obedience to the strong and powerful calling on your life. I will keep you and your ministry in prayer for prosperity and growth. (I already prayed a good van in for you; even that someone would give it to the ministry!) God bless you big time and I'm sure I'll be back with more testimonies of what happened at The Tabernacle since there was so much I can't absorb it all at once! Kathy B. (One of those 2 "Lightening Rods" that you called out.)
Jun 4, 2012
I have mentioned several times to you that I'd love to share with you my testimony from the weekend in August (8/5-7/11) when you were here. I feel like I am supposed to do so now. So much happened that weekend. I heard from some that they got nothing out of that weekend but I got so much out of it. God just did so much. One way I'd like to describe the weekend is this "I was humongously awesomely blessed". (I don't think "humongously" is a word or can end with 'ly' but I don't care. I am saying it that way anyway.)
I will go by each meeting in which something happened. I decided to self title each message you gave for my journal entry. I don't know if you have already entitled them but I went ahead and did it anyway. Sorry. This is reflective of three of the meetings. I will try to condense it some so it's not too long. I don't think you want my entire journal entry verbatim for it's 10 1/2 pages long.
Friday Night: I called the message, "Refinement of Character". I needed this word. You were talking about all the circumstances and things we go through whether positive or negative that it has all been for our glorious preparation for our destination. You went on about how despite all we go through that something is happening in the unseen. Our roots are growing. I have never heard this before and found it interesting. So, I'm like, "hmm, my roots must be growing." I am realizing that despite the hard, tough, frustrating, miserable circumstances and stuff I have been and am going through that something has been happening in the unseen. My roots are growing. God is causing my roots to grow deeper and deeper in Him and thus I go higher and higher (grow taller and taller in Him). Wow. I was reflecting on your talk about roots. I said to myself, "that is something I know about." I have a flower bed, a large vegetable/herb garden and have pulled my share of weeds so I know about roots. Some are shallow, some are deeper, some vine out to produce more plants, and some go straight down to China. The deeper the root the sturdier or hardier the plant. As I was reflecting what you were saying about roots God gave me a vision. The vision: I saw my legs and feet standing on what looked like a rock. At times it may appear like dirt but it looked more like a large rock. I saw roots under my feet and they went straight down inside the rock. I was like, "I have roots and they're big(long)". I felt like God was showing me that I have deep roots, they're growing and I am rooted in the Rock. I can withstand the storms that come my way. As much as I am hanging on by a fine thin thread, as much as I hate what I've been through, and am still going through, as much as I want out so desperately, and feeling like I can't take it anymore and feel like I am about to fold under it I am still standing. I am enduring and persevering. You said something about not despising the process and that God brings you through the process. It's not meant for my harm or evil but meant for my good or the good of me. It reminded me of Joseph and all he went through. He said to his brothers what you meant for evil God meant it for good. I am also reminded of Job; a song says "I am coming out Gold". Amen. I had a revelation of roots as well when you were talking about them. You may have touched on this some so I may be expounding on that. Roots go deep. They go deep in search of what? Water. They need water to thrive. They get some nourishment from the soil but they also need water. I likened this to us. Our roots are, or need to be, rooted in the Rock or soil, Jesus Christ. The roots then go deep to tap into the water source--River of Life, Holy Spirit. The River of Life is our life source. We're constantly tapped into it. Wow. Can you imagine what our lives are like being tapped into it? We will be so nourished, thriving, alive and have such power in our Spirits, our lives. Wow!!! One more thing for tonight. You went on about the things we have gone through and how we'd love to be instantly snapped out of them. God sometimes takes us through them not out. You were saying, "God is breaking through for you. God is delivering you. When God delivers you it's not always out of, many times it's through." I could go on, it's all good and applicable. This was a long statement of which I don't feel to go into. In the midst of this statement you said "It's for someone here tonight". I felt it was for me. Believe me, I have been fighting a long time and wonder when will this end. I had a mini vision at this point to. I saw you up front by the pulpit. I was in the back in my seat. Everyone in between and to my left were gone. They looked fogged over or something. It was just you and me. You were talking directly to me. A "just for me" moment. Yeah!
Sunday Morning: I called this message "His Glorious Presence; Joy" This was another "for me" message. You began your sermon with Psalm 27 (my Psalm). I consider this my Psalm because a lady had received this from the Lord for me a long time ago. It was my first thing from God I think and it was special to me. Hence, my Psalm. When you started with this I knew I had better pay attention and that it was for me. You were talking directly to me again. Great message. I will expound more on the message in summary. The blessings came mostly afterward. I was seeking and crying out to God during the prayer time. God spoke to me. He said, "Claim victory. Victory is yours." and "My daughter, you are precious in My sight." Wow! I'm still pressing into God and while making CD copies of the service God showed me a vision I had two years ago but this time it was different. The original vision came in January of 2009 while on a two week fast with the church. The vision was of two images of a rose. I saw a rose on the ground. It was trampled underfoot in the mud and dirt. I could almost see feet, horses pulling buggies, and such. I have been feeling like this rose. I have been feeling like I get so trampled under foot and rubbed in the dirt by circumstances, people, and the such. It feels like it doesn't stop. Then to the left of this I saw a slender vase with a beautiful pink rose in it. This vase was on a pedestal. This rose was in bloom. Of course while seeing this I ask God, "What is this?" God said it was me (rose in vase). I said, "How can this be when I feel like that (trampled rose)?" I felt God was saying, "This is how I see you (rose in vase)." It was a very hard thing to see myself as the rose in the vase. I related this to a song called, "Above All". The part in the chorus which says, "...rejected and alone, like a rose trampled on the ground..." I know this song refers to Jesus but I can sure relate. It's hard to see myself as this beautiful pink rose in the vase when I feel so pressed against, so squashed, so rejected, so shoved away and so trampled in the mud. I wonder if I will ever find let alone see the light of day again. It's been a hard process. The vision God gave today was just like that one but it showed transition. I was now between the two. I can't explain what I saw in the vision but I know it showed the transition I had made thus far at that point. I am getting closer to seeing myself as the rose in the vase. This made me happy. I rushed to get the CD's done so I could go up for prayer. I wanted you to pray for me but I wasn't fast enough. You scooted before I could get up there. I was standing up front waiting for prayer and Sue came over and laid her hand on my back. The anointing was strong. I felt a burning heat. There were two men who came with you which you had called to come up front to pray for people. One of them came over to pray for me. I don't know who it was but I'd love to find out. I never looked to see who it was. He placed his thumbs in the palms of my hands and prayed. What do you think the first words out of his mouth were? A confirmation of the vision which came before. He said, "You are a flower. I see the sun shining on the flower and the flower reaching for the sun. A flower with the sun shining on it. You are a jewel. A precious jewel. A diadem. Isaiah 62:3 (whole chapter is good)." He may have said something about "precious in his sight". In his praying for me he referred to me as "sister". This made me feel like family. I felt like he was my brother even though I had no clue who he was. It felt good. He continued, "When she reads the Bible let Your word come alive to her." He also prayed, "There is a cry in your heart for acceptance" and something about being accepted. He also prayed for self-confidence;A deep, inner, within confidence. When he did I felt my back to go straighter or I was standing taller. Something happened inside. Wow! He was right on with all he said. I wished I knew who it was to thank him and hug him. Me so blessed!
To summarize: There has been this question in my heart about joy. I noticed how you have this joyous countenance and just glow. I have been wondering how to achieve this and maintain it (let no one steal it away). I so desperately want joy in my life. I want to wear a true smile on my face with real joy backing it up. I'm tired of wearing a fake smile on my face and saying everything is good when it's not. Joy would be wonderful. If I could muster up the guts and boldness I'd ask you. When you started your message with Psalm 27 I knew it was for me. As the message progressed it occurred to me you were talking about joy. There is joy in God's presence. I realized you were answering my question. It's like God heard the cry of my heart, gave you the answer and you preached it. How awesome is that. I know it could be a possible answer. I have been feeling overlooked, forgotten, forsaken, and unnoticed. It was like God heard my hearts cry for joy and such to which He answered me. He spoke to me, gave me a vision, and confirmed them. It was like He was saying you're not overlooked, not forgotten, not forsaken, and not unnoticed. I noticed you. I heard you. I didn't overlook you. I noticed. I just felt so special. When no one else would notice God did. Isn't He so amazing?!
Sunday Night: I called this one, "Transformation; Transition". Another great message. The one thing that stood out to me was your talk about the butterfly. You talked about how the caterpillar while in the cocoon liquefies before turning into a butterfly. I had a vision. I saw the outer shape of a cocoon. I could see the inside of the cocoon. I saw liquid inside swirling around. I think there was a streak of light swirling in there too. I wondered if that was the state I was in at that time. (Liquid turning into a butterfly). Now, 7 months later, I feel like I am a butterfly trying to get out of the cocoon. I am finding it quite a struggle. My mind also wondered back to a song about butterflies. I think it's called, "Doves with Butterflies" by Christine Wyrtzen. It's one of my favorites. It starts out "The old grey farmer glanced out his kitchen door..." Do you know it? I hope so. I have the words in my journal but think I will spare you them. The words are good and go along with what you were saying. While I was writing the words in my journal I got some insight from it. Just like the butterfly which has to free itself from the cocoon or it will die. So we must be. I guess we have to fight some tests to develop what God wants in us so we can thrive. I understand this but the way I feel I'd like God to come in and free me, help. I was able to go up front to participate in the prayer time. You weren't laying hands on anyone but letting the Spirit move and have His way. I got on my knees and was thanking God for the awesome weekend and the blessings. I had a vision. It's hard to explain. It was like God opened a window and was showing me a part of His vast love for me. I certainly felt like I experienced a portion of that love this weekend. It was like God was showing me I had a taste. I was reflecting on this taste of His love and wondered just how many of us realize just how much He loves us. The depths and greatness of His love toward us. I thought if I had just experienced a portion of it how much more intense would it be if He showed me His love for me in its entirety. I thought it would kill me or at least have me floored. Wow! I was happy for the taste. I continued to pray and God says, "There is a well within." I thanked Him for that. I question what He meant. Is it a well of "rivers of living water" inside of me or is it a wealth of knowledge I have which is not being tapped into? Either way, I agreed.
After the meeting was over and most of the people have left, I was standing in the back behind the back row. Dorothy was sitting there. Paulette came back and sat down. She was laughing in the Spirit. I started laughing too. I glanced out into the foyer. I saw your dad standing there. I was contemplating going out there to hug him again. As I looked at him I saw this aura around him. It extended maybe a foot and half out in front of him or around him. I asked God what it was. I felt immediately it was a "father" or "fatherly" aura. There was more but I will keep it to myself.
To summarize the whole weekend: I was humongously awesomely blessed. A God ordained weekend just for me! I shared this with my mom and she said that because I had prayed for you and the meetings God blessed me. Wow! I was sure was blessed! God made me feel so special. It felt so good.
That is my testimony. As much as I was blessed I hope you were blessed too. I thank God for a wonderful blessing filled weekend. I thank you, Matt, for being obedient to God and bringing forth His word into my life.
Many blessings to you. You are always in my prayers. My heart goes out to you and all you do.
Food For Thought
May 18, 2012
Matt, I took my family to hear you in Aberdeen 4/14/12. After the meeting, we talked about how even though Joshua & Caleb had faith to take on the inhabitants, and thus found grace to enter the promise, as part of an unbelieving generation, they had to wait 40 years to enter. And this afternoon I was thinking about Jesus' model prayer, "Lead US not into temptation, but deliver US from evil." I've always viewed my relationship with Jesus as personal. I've prayed "Lead ME not into temptation, but deliver ME from evil." But this insight into Joshua & Caleb, and Jesus' prayer teaching is making me contemplate all this. Thank you for giving me food for thought this weekend!
Transfer of anointings
May 7, 2012
I attended the conference in Aberdeen, SD in April. The first night Matt called out for healings. As he prayed for me the Spirit of God was on me. As I laid on the floor Matt started to transfer anointings on me such as healing and many more, calling them out one by one. Holy Spirit was heavy on me. I went home pondering what to do with this and knew that I needed and wanted to nurture the anointings. Last weekend Lee Grady was in Minot and prophesied that I would be speaking, that God was sending me out to many places. He said that there is a strong anointing on me! It is so cool how God puts it all together. I am so excited and so full of joy! I am the most unlikely person to do this but He will work through me to do it! God is so good! Thank you Matt for always listening to Holy Spirit and obeying!
Was watching “Glory Warfare” on podcast
Apr 12, 2012
This may not be a "Major Testimony", but I was watching "Glory Warfare" on the podcast. I was laughing so hard! But yet the truth of what God was speaking through Him was so profound it opened up my eyes to see so much. I love how Matt brings the truth but yet in a comical, graceful way. Just letting you guys know I, along with my mom who watches Power for Life always get blessed through this ministry every time we watch. God bless!
God Spoke to Me
Nov 11, 2011
You came to my church Full Gospel Christian Church yesterday and I just wanted to tell you how wonderful service was. You are a powerful speaker and I truly felt that I was in the presence of the Holy Spirit. I must say that the Holy Spirit has given me a word and I am just thrilled about it. Matt thank you for coming and speaking at our church.
Never The Same Again
Apr 9, 2011
Matt, I just left the Glory Signs and Wonders conference at the Melville Marriott in Long Island. I'm at JFK headed back to California. The anointing of God is still tangible on me and with me. This weekend was permanently life changing. I'm truly a new man and will never be the same again. I'm so excited to partner with you again and your ministry and partake of impacting the nations for Christ! I have a fresh revelation of so many things I forgot or that was dormant. I received healings and deliverance and impartation, God so blessed me so many times this weekend!! God has resurrected and reactivated giftings, callings and anointings that were once on me and forgotten or dormant and even more than that! I wish I could fully express my gratitude to you, your team and your ministry. I will just say thank you and prove it with works as the Bible says faith without works is dead! I am going to partner with MSM for $250 per month. Please consider me your friend and part of your extended ministry. I will make the credit card arrangements when I get home. In Christ, Jason

Matt n Rich before you came to Rainer, Oregon, I didn't have a sale for my business for 38 days. Since you left I have had close to $100,000 in sales. PTL. Thanks for coming, the Lord's favor was released!! Thank you. Randy
A Pentecost Experience
Oct 29, 2009
I just wanted to share my testimony about how blessed I was from attending your Open Heavens Conference 2009 in Melville, New York. The word from all the speakers and yourself Matt was truly blessed and filled with so much confirmation for life and ministry. The worship services led by Sole desire were life changing and help bring me into a closer intimate relationship with God in my personal devotion time in praise and worship. It was also the first time I have ever worship with blacks, whites, and other people from different countries like Asia, Beligum, New Zealand and others. The whole weekend was a Pentecost experience (Acts 2:1,7-11) for me. Finally, I wanted to also say I was truly blessed by observing the level of ministry and service that I saw your event coordinator (Kim) from Denmark demonstrated by servicing as an armorbearer for the different speakers he was assigned to. I personally serve as a armorbearer and security in my church in Long Island New York. It is my prayer that as others in the Body of Christ sees his walk before the Lord that it would inspire them also to a new level in excellence in serving their leaders. I truly wanted this testimony to be a brief one but I wanted to let you and your ministry know how much I was blessed by your conference. God Bless.
Oct 29, 2009
I came to the Open Heavens conference this last weekend (and it was so awesome!). It was a stretch for me financially to come, but I was really glad I did. I spent much more on resources than I should have and gave what I thought of as more than I should. Then, on Saturday night I was stirred by the message and was writing a check to give more. I felt that the Lord was saying to give $10 more than that and I did. I named the seed primarily for my daughter-in-law and her family. Her brother had been sent to jail during the week of the conference for a serious crime and was out on bail. On Sunday morning his wife's grandfather was reading his Bible and it was a scripture about forgiveness. He went to him and witnessed to him. He got saved, went to church, and was water baptised!
Sep 14, 2009
Dear Matt, Thank you so much for speaking Friday and Saturday at The Hope Center in Chesapeake. It was very apparent that the power and anointing of God was/is upon you. I was on of the teenagers that was there and I can surely tell you that we had an amazing time. God touched my life so much this weekend. Thank you brother. -Lauren
Life is CHANGED
Aug 27, 2009
My life has been so changed since attending the meetings that were held in Aberdeen, SD. I have never been touched by the Holy Spirit the way that I was during those meetings. God has put a love and a hunger in my heart for Him. I have even been different at my workplace, being more loving and patient. Thank you much Matt for ministering to us on such a personal level. God bless you all! Doreen
Open Heavens Conference—Ohio
Aug 10, 2009
Dear Matt, I was at the Open Heaven Conference this past weekend and found your preaching and teaching very refreshing. Your style is truly anointed and the power of God on your life is evident. I appreciate you coming and doing this conference. This was my first time seeing you in person and your story about the lady who said she sees Jesus when she sees you is so right, and I desire the same. Your loving approach to teaching people is mind blowing. Also your comment about we should not be praying God changes those who we struggle with, but pray God changes us hit home to me. I have been seeking God for healing of my liver, total body and past hurts, I stand on his word an receive everything you said when you prayed over us Saturday night. God bless you brother!

Aberdeen Meetings Healing
Aug 10, 2009
I feel completely undone by God thru the meetings you were at in Aberdeen, SD. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being obedient to God and coming to our city! Not only a great work in my heart, but on Tuesday a migraine headache began. That night I played your "Healing in His Wings" CD while I slept and was completely healed. When I get a migraine, they usually last for at least 3 days. A headache may seem "small", but to me it was HUGE!!! God bless you and your ministry!!!
160 Miles for His Presence
Jul 28, 2009
Dear Matt: Thank you for coming to Chicago, I and a friend drove 160 miles from Sheboygan WI to see you I first saw you in Iowa (I wore the MSM tee shirt in Chicago) i fell in love with your spirit and started to support your ministry. During that conference the Lord healed me of shame and guilt that I was carrying for two years from my divorce. I was fired from my job two years ago and am living on S.S. The Lord has broken me, healed me, and has been filling me with His spirit. My dream is to lay hands on the sick and see them recover. I watch your show almost every Monday morning and many times the annointing has come right through the screen. Thanks for fighting the good fight of faith and annointing others. You have awesome parents, got to meet your dad at the product table. I am again going to support your ministry and pray God's blessing and favor be on your life. Al Burgard
Refreshed in the Lord
Jul 7, 2009
Before watching the revival in Lakeland on 7/6/09 I began to feel like I was carrying dead weight. I had a heaven burden for my family to get saved and committed to the Lord. I felt empty. I am at work right now, watching this broadcast on the internet and the Presence of the Lord came in my office and is still here and I began to weep and weep and laugh and a very quite peace came over me. A refreshing in my spirit. You became to call out household salvations. Peace and confidence in what the Lord is going for me came back to me in a strong way. Thank you Brother Matt for your faithfulness to the Lord.
Charismatic Renewal For Me!
Jun 15, 2009
Dear Matt, I wanted to take a minute to thank you for your teaching. I am a conservative Baptist accountant from a rural area of Canada and for years I have tried to make sense of charismatic Christianity. I know that there is more than I am taught in my little Baptist church. And I have tried to go deeper into the the things of the Lord – but every time I try to learn about it there is opposition. Your words and teaching make significantly more sense than many of the other charismatic ministers out there and you preach using the Bible. Which sounds like it should be a good thing – until it gets in the way of “the supernatural stuff.” Anyhow – for years I have tried to understand tongues; supernatural evangelism and other concepts from a Biblical perspective and was unable to. But then I stumbled across your ministry! I was ready to give up on the whole thing..... but now I will try again to know, understand and go deeper with our Lord. So I am not sure if that is encouragement or not – I am definitely not one of the people who normally might follow your ministry – but I did want to encourage you that your Biblically based preaching has struck a chord with me. Be blessed. NicoleB
Jun 15, 2009
Dear Matt (And whoever reads this first), I have been to 3 of your meetings. Thank you for declaring this as your stand. Thank you for reminding me the Lord Himself is my strength and no other - not even you or blessings. I really hope God keeps breaking me to keep me as honest and as singularly desirous of communication with/from Him (In part of that, recognizing the truth in the Word and the world), as you are - throughout the course of my life. Most of the time, my deepest darkest "Bet" or "Risk" is that He won't - or I won't (Whichever it is). I pray for the blessing of a constant reality check. -Sara (In Jesus Christ)
Healing in Spirit and Body
May 8, 2009
Hey Matt, Thanks for coming to Ohio! I wanted to share a couple of praise reports with you. During your teaching, especially Sat and Sun night, (Sat night was amazing!) the Holy Spirit was working with your teaching convicting me of sin in my life and refining me. While listening to your teaching, I was repenting fast so I didn't miss what all you were saying. It was like God was dropping a plumb line down in the Spirit and showing us where we're at and leading us on the right path. It was also a sobering message because I think so many of us want the ministry but don't always understand the cost or process. Holiness revival! During the ministry time when we were worshiping up front, there was a powerful spirit of God's holiness. A taste of heaven on Earth. It was powerful and felt the ministry of Holy Spirit all thoughout your ministry. I was refreshed, refired, and am looking forward to the manifestation of the increased anointing I received! Also, I was healed. You prayed for me about bladder problem. The doctor told me I need to see a urologist, cause they couldn't figure out what was wrong. God touched me, when I went back to my seat, my posture was healed and I'm healed. I had a tilted pevis and I can tell a difference in my posture. This was probably causing the bladder problem. Thank you Jesus! Thanks for sharing your powerful gift and anointing with us. I could see you have a spirit of excellence in your ministry and wait for the Holy Spirit. We are blessed! Thanks Again. In Jesus and thankful! Margie
LIFE IS CHANGED!
Apr 19, 2009
Lisa Michelle Hi Matt, I so enjoyed the conference. I didn't miss one meeting and My life is changed. I am renewed, refreshed and equipped for what is ahead. I'm so thankful to God, and appreciate you for your faithfulness to the Call of God on your life and ministry. Bless you and your wonderful family. Love You. Lisa
God Fixed Me
Apr 16, 2009
While at the Glory, Signs and wonders conference I felt like I wanted so much more from God. This lady prayed for me and I fell in the floor and that she started saying no more rejection, Jesus loves you and all those things I needed to hear. I loved it but I was still asking God, Lord please let me have an experience with you. Don’t let me go out of here not changed. It was already the last meeting and I needed more. GLORY TO THE LORD because on that last meeting I felt like the pastor preached for me it was everything I needed to hear and I will never give up never, never, never, never give up. And when he told us to count our stars, yep that was it, I was set. God fixed me. When I went up for prayer I felt so much fire. God was releasing fire on me. It was AMAZING. On that morning Matt prayed about wind and how we have to let God be the wind. I felt that wind...I also felt some hand come and touch me it was really soft like a little kids hand and it stayed there for 3 seconds and I was amazed this was my first conference and man, it was worth coming...
GOD’‘S AMAZING ORCHESTRATION OF LOVE:
Apr 16, 2009
Taking in breakfast at our motel after the Glory conference in LI last weekend, we met a missionary from Africa. As we talked it came out she was grieving over her husband’s long-term adultery with a co-pastor’s wife. We took her to the beach with us and the Lord ministered to her in many ways, including just being able to laugh with us. When we shared Jim Goll’s testimony about the card with his wife’s last message: "Never, never, never give up," she was amazed and shared, "When I was on the mission field feeling such pain and rejection I wrote on the inside hem of my long dress ''Never give up''. Wow! The Lord arranged this meeting just for me!" Isn’t that amazing!
Apr 16, 2009
Greetings...This is Sharon Garrett, volunteer (security/usher). What a divine appointment with the Holy Ghost this past weekend! my cup runneth over...STILL.

I stand in prayer for Matt Sorger, his family, you and your family, & every staff member & volunteer. Again, God bless you and thank you for allowing me to serve.
Feb 26, 2009
I first wanted to say Thank you for coming to Colorado! I attended last Thursday at Power Invasion. The word Matt brought forth was for me. Thank you, Matt for your submission to the Holy Spirit, and bringing me the exact word at the exact time. I also experienced something supernatural. Throughout the evening my hands were tingling and I wasn’t sure what to make of it. I thought maybe I just needed water or something. At one point while I was worshiping, I opened my eyes I saw two flashes of light shoot down at me. I literally thought something fell on me. I searched on myself and behind me and I found nothing. It was an electric atmosphere where it actually caused my hands to tingle and shots of light in the atmosphere! WOW! Thank you, Jesus for your presence. May we become ever familiar but never experts at your presence and glory. Thanks Matt and the crew! Hope to see you in Denver again soon.
Clean and Free
Oct 30, 2008
The confrence was great. I came just totally dry and even backsliden. Yeah I was realy hurting, but God met me the moment I walked in for Friday night worship. Thanks be to our wonderful Father. Now clean/free.
Good Preaching, Matt
Sep 10, 2008
Dear Matt, I truly enjoyed hearing and meeting you today at Ascension. You are one of the few ministers I've heard in my lifetime that actually had something to say for 45 minutes. I rarely come forward in another ministers meeting, but I prayed Lord if you are leading me. ..have him ask for comments. Once you did, I had to obey God. I am planning on being at the barn on Thursday pm. I am in agreement with you that God will continue to use you and increase your ministry for His purpose. God bless and direct you and your staff. David Alessi
Your ministry is such a blessing
Jul 6, 2008
Hey Matt, Just wanted to let you know you are still such a great inspiration to me in my ministry here in Colorado Springs. As I continue in the ministry of awakening the people here to the Glory of God. I sometimes have to soak in the presence while listening to the cd you have so that I may be able to carry the Glory here in such a dry land. So many miracles happen as people are awakened and the Glory is released but trying to get the people to desire great moves, here in a very spoiled by every type of ministry atmosphere, it becomes a pick and choose situation for a lot of people but once they taste of the Glory they won't settle for less ever again. So I deeply ask for your prayers as I continue to walk and obey the call given to me. God bless you please continue in all that you do. Your minstry is such a blessing and an impact to my life.

Hello! My name is Susan Devuyst, from Warwick NY. I attended one evening of a conference that Matt Sorger did at Hope in Life Ministries, in Mahopac NY. Although that is not my home church, I saw it advertised online and it was close enough for me to get to. I had a wonderful time! I am worship leader at the Warwick Assembly of God. I have to tell you, the blessing for me was to be in the presence of the Lord and just to be able to recieve and be on the other end was very refreshing for me. The worship was full of FIRE and the teaching and revelation given by Mr. Sorger was timely and deep. He did a lesson on FAITH, and it was just what I needed. Also, pain left my left elbow and I could straighten it for the first time in a long time. God is aswesome. I didn't have time to give a testimony on tape because I had such a long drive, so just wanted you to know how God touched me and how He used the servant of God. I received a lot of deep revelation and was totally refreshed in the mighty presence of the Lord. Thank you so much for coming.

I heard you speak at Patricia King's Supernatural conference and bought a bunch of your stuff. I received an impartation of the fire of God from you, even though you never laid hands on me and carried it to Brazil where it continues to have a powerful impact. I've been in ministry for almost 30 years and have traveled on six continents. I have sat under many teachers around the world and can honestly say what I received from you has been among the most significant spiritual experiences of my life. I listen to your Awakening on my ipod all the time. Would love to connect with you in some way. Blessings Donna
Stepping out in faith
May 28, 2008
A couple weeks before the Supernatural 3 Conference in Pheonix,AZ, I had a dream that the LORD was releasing the Mantle of Jesus to me. I woke up thinking that I was crazy. I met Matt at the conference briefly. Long enough to see he understood. I bought the awakening cd and #2 hit me hard in the spirit! I want Matt to know - The mantle of Jesus is being released....I am proof. His cd confirmed it for me. I wanted to thank him for his obedience. It helped me. When I met Matt, he "blew the annointing" on me and I said "I am not falling down". It was very strong. A week later, I jumped off a cliff for the Lord- to go full time
God sold my house!!
Apr 10, 2008
I was praying that God would sent someone to buy my house because I couldn't afford it and it needs alot of work. I have been working 3 different jobs to pay for it. I went to your conference on April 10th and while I was away, a real estate agent I know, showed my house to a couple on April 10th, they offered enough for me to pay off the mortgage, closing costs and have enough left for an apartment. My house never went on the market and they had cash and 22 days later we closed and I'am now living in an apartment that I can afford. When I was at the conference on the night that Heidi Baker was there, I got on my knees and laid down my life before God, I told Him that I was His and I wanted Him to use me however He wanted. I fasted for 2 days and gave away all my money. Twenty two days later I closed on my house, at a time when nobody has been able to sell their houses in this area. It's an incredible miracle and whenever anyone asks who sold my house I say GOD! I don't know what His plans are for me but He moved me real quick. God Bless!
Touched by his Glory
Apr 10, 2008
Brother Matt, I just attended the Glory, Signs & Wonders Conference April 11th & 12th. I am in my early fifties and was glad to hear of your prophecy for us slightly older folks. I was a Catholic until becoming born again at twenty. Somehow after this experience I kept getting caught in relgion (doo doo), as Georgian put it. After experiencing many years of doo doo and legalism and many Christian names, The Seventh Day Aventist, Penticostal oneness,...... many others then backsliding for years, I recomitted my life back to the Lord. About eight years ago I started attending a seaker sensitive churh and got back. My born again experience was powerful and was something I could never forget. It has not been an easy return but the Lord is faithful. I believe the Lord touched me with His glory at the conference. Because of my religious experiences. With sometimes feelings of skepticism and doubt I met God's glory. My heart is in winning souls for Christ. Thank you, Brother In Christ,
An encounter with God
Apr 10, 2008
Hi Matt. Just wanted to thank you for being faithful to what Holy Spirit is doing in this season. My husband and myself attended recent Glory, Signs & Wonders Conference and it was awesome. To say the least, I will never be the same again is but a mild understatement. The three day event was truly an encounter as you mentioned Matt, with our God. It is indeed all about HIM! On Sunday morning, I got out of bed to admire the cloud for some reason--as I looked at them I told the Lord that He was my Cloud by day and Fire by night - Suddenly the clouds grew larger and the power of God fell upon me most unexpectantly. Evently I went back to bed and started praying, again the power of Holy Spirit came upon me again. While praying in church again today with another individual - same thing happened again. It's his Glory pool. He is more real to me - more intimate relationship - Jesus my knight in shining armour He is awesome As stated, Latter Rain will be Greater than the former. Manner is which I used to pray have changed. Holy Spirit literally takes control of my vocal cords etc.- Prayer Warrior, Prayer Warrior, Praise God and Praise God Again. He is a wonder and no doubt Matt, as you have stated, this is just the beginning of the downpour or outpouring of Power of HOLY SPIRIT - DAYS OF JOEL. These are the days of Elijah. Praise God! THANK YOU AGAIN. I PRAY THAT YOU AND YOUR STAFF will continue to remain COMMITTED SUBMITTED VESSELS, HAPPY TO DO HIS WILL IN JESUS MATCHLESS NAME AMEN To God be the Glory and all the Honour and the Glory belong to you o Lord Amen. The Lords Richest Blessing I pray that the Lord our God will continue Matt to keep you in his truth and knowledge of his will and has apostle Paul prayed that you and your family would continue to have prosperous journey in Jesus Name Amen
Deeper love for Him
Mar 20, 2008
I attended The Latter Rain conference in Syracuse, NY a couple weeks ago. At Friday morning's service, God did some pretty neat stuff in my heart. I am a passionate, sensitive person. Following hard after God has been my deepest desire and pleasure. He is so good - so in love with His people and He loves to touch us, giving us wisdom, revelation, understanding. Yes, He does! Right? Well, I had this powerful touch on Friday morning of that conference. God met with me. I was on the floor crying, "I love You, Jesus. I love You, Jesus", because I know that I know that the Almighty God bowed down to minister His love to this little heart. When Matt began the teaching, I had to leave the room because the Holy Spirit was still so deposited in me I couldn't sit still and I kept saying, "Amen", and "woo hoo" to everything Matt was saying. I didn't want to be a distraction to anyone else who was listening to God pour out His teaching. I couldn't believe that the whole place wasn't shouting, "AMEN!" to what Matt was sharing. I know part of what Matt shared was this thing about a "Breastplate of Love". It was so good. So, being who God made me to be, I have pondered that day on the floor many times in prayer. I wondered what exactly God did to me that day because I know I am not the same person I was before that experience. God took me deeper into His heart. I knew He wanted me to share a testimony but I couldn't really even speak, except to say that God was winning my whole family to the cross even as we were gathered in that room - and that is a whole other testimony in itself . . . The point of this whole long letter (sorry) is that God told me this week that during that time at the conference, He put His Breastplate of Love on me. He put it on me. He put a deeper love in my heart for Him and for others and I am not the same. I still have so much to learn but walking with the Father's heart of Love covering mine is a remarkable tool for His Kingdom and I am blessed and grateful. I think God wanted Matt to know that He used Him again and that a great work was done through Matt's ministry here in Syracuse. Even if I was the only one touched that day - I know Matt's love for the Father, our Papa, brought a great gift to us here. I know you are probably used to hearing about miracles of healing, etc. but God tells me that this is no less of a miracle - I could not have this LOVE without His depositing it in me - supernaturally - and I have asked Him for it. Jesus put this Breastplate on me - His very own Breastplate. So I am beside myself in blessing and loving Him. I'm praying for you, Matt. God bless you.
Thank you for being vessels!
Feb 22, 2008
I want to thank you for your ministry at Hope for the Nations this weekend. All I can say is wow… you have no idea what a word in season the teachings were in my life. I won't waste your time with a lot of details, but I just want to say THANK YOU for being vessels who continually are used by the Lord in my life, because you simply make room for the Holy Spirit to do what he wants and needs to do. I also want to thank Ronnie for ministering to me at the end of the service. I was so touched by the sincere love and appreciation she has for the partners. You guys really feel like family even though I don't know you personally. I was so encouraged this weekend by the work the Lord is doing in His body… and am so excited to be a part of what God is doing through this ministry.
Your preaching ministry is outstanding!
Feb 22, 2008
Dear Matt, Just wanted to drop you a quick line and let you know what a huge blessing you were to us this weekend. In a day of so much charismatic abuse, I so appreciate your balance and the way in which you exalt the Word of God in your meetings. Your preaching/teaching ministry is just outstanding. The Lord met us in such a powerful way this weekend. Thank you for your obedience to the Lord and for the messages you brought. I especially want to thank you for the message on "faith and grace". It spoke powerfully to my heart. May God's continued blessings rest mightily upon you, Matt. Your humble and hungry heart brings great pleasure to the Father. Thanks again for blessing HFNWC this weekend. We were destined for Glory and that Glory was revealed in a powerful way.
The weight of Gods Glory!
Feb 22, 2008
Matt- I just wanted to say thank you for submitting to God's call on your life. My experience Friday night and Saturday morning in Monroe township completely took me by surprise. Never have I felt the weight of God's glory like that before! I am a new Christian so I was really surprised when I felt like I couldn't stand up straight!! And when you spoke that one sentence to me by the direction and power of the Holy Spirit "God is for you and not against you" -- it shook me to the core. I have struggled with doubting God's intentions for my life. And since Saturday, those doubts have hardly been there at all. This all comes at the end of a long season of depression so I am truly thankful. Bless you seven times over for what has been done in my heart.
My spirit was so hungry!
Feb 17, 2008
Thank you! for coming to my church, World Overcoming. The presence of the Lord was so thick and there was a very sweet anoting. You teach about the Glory of God like I've never heard it before. My spirit was so hungry to receive more. I started a fast Monday, and want more of Jesus than I ever wanted before. Your parents must be so happy how Jesus is using you. I have 6 children and pray they will all be used like Jesus uses you. We are so happy how you & Pastor Jim click in the spirit. Blessing back to you.
More of the Holy Spirit
Feb 10, 2008
Hi Matt, I was at the conference you held at Christian Life Center in West Chester, Ohio (Feb 2008). I am part of the healing rooms their under Bob & Carla Fritz. Two things that I wanted to tell you about. The first is about the second night (Monday) when you began to share on giving and the widow's money and giving. This has happened only a few times in my life (once with Pastor Randy at CLC). But as you were sharing a purple cloud came around your shoulders and head, I could see if for a short time and knew the Holy Spirit was speaking through you and sanctioning the message as His. And He was anointing you. Some time later you taught on yielding to the Holy Spirit (I so needed that message) all day I had been asking God "how" how do I get more of you, I don't think I can be "Heidi Baker spiritual" right now Father - how do I find you now before I'm super spiritual. You used almost the exact words I prayed that day and as you taught on yielding, just stopping to let the Holy Spirit lead -- again with the purple. Only this time as you moved it moved with you back and forth and then suddenly behind you on the platform coming down from the ceiling was purple like it was being poured out down onto the stage. Eight days before the services w/you my mom passed away from cancer. It is a story of incredible physical pain, spiritual torment, and warfare that she struggled with - but in the end the Father's grace and mercy overshadowed it all and He brought forgiveness, salvation and hope. That night when you prayed for me I had asked the Holy Spirit for more of Him and I told Him I was going to try to stand up as long as I could to receive as much of Him as I could. As soon as you neared me, I could feel the Holy Spirit so powerfully and then you put your hand on my head, I tried to stand and then for the first time ever the Holy Spirit released holy laughter on me and I was (as my friends said) "howling" in the Spirit on the floor. Thank you for being obedient. That night was the mark of a "new beginning". He washed me with His incredible joy that night. He released the burdens, the years of not being loved by a mother so bound that only God could release. And I really laughed, probably really for the first time since before my dad died when I was 9 (and I'm 44). God bless you! What an incredible God we serve and Who loves us! Go in Him, you are blessed! I am listening to the "Awakening" CD constantly, it is so anointed -- it's an instant way to walk into the presence of the Holy Spirit. God bless you.
Fear left me!
Feb 10, 2008
Hi Matt, I wanted to thank you for coming last Sunday & Monday night (February 10 & 11). And I wanted to give you a testimony. Monday night as soon as you touched my head, I went down. My hands shook really fast several different ways. Because of the woman with fibromyalgia on the floor having it shaken out of her, I knew something was being shaken out of me, but I didn't know what. I found out later what it was. it was fear. I just thought you might like to know. Again, thank you so much for coming to Christian Life Center.
Thank you for still being real!
Jan 27, 2008
Hi Matt, It was great to see you Wed. night at Ft. Pierce! Thank you so much for praying and laying hands on my pastor and our worship leader. Pastor said after you laid hands on him and he fell under the power of the Holy Spirit it was the same experience he had at the Toronto Church--electrical jolts and electricity vibrating his body. The same for our worship leader -electricity. She also felt heat/fire/power when you breathed into her hands. Now she ''twitches'' when God jolts her body with electricity. Pastor also appreciates the fact that you promote the local church. He was very impressed with you. Matt, you're genuine and still grounded even while God is taking you higher and deeper in the things of God. Thank you for still being real !!!
Thank you so much
Jan 26, 2008
Thank you so much for that prayer....it is truly what I needed to pray. We sometimes don't even know we've not let loose of hurts, etc. Thanks for your faithfullness in Christ !
Enjoyed the meeting
Jan 19, 2008
Dear Matt, I attended your service last night @ the Radisson Hotel and was truly blessed. Much of what you spoke was a confirmation to me as to what Holy Spirit had spoken to me. This was the first time I've attended you meetings and was not quite certain what to expect but came expecting to feel GOD's presence and see him move in a mighty way. I really enjoyed the meeting and the message that was brought forth. I knew that GOD wanted me at the meeting as I had been home sick with I fever for 4 days and could barely move out of bed. I prayed to GOD the night before, should I still go to the meeting if so you will take the pain away and fever. To GOD be the glory when I woke up on Saturday I was feeling strong and my fever had broken. I pray that you continue to do the will of GOD and GOD continues to use you as a vessel to reach the nations.
Helped me know how to live in the Glory
Nov 23, 2007
Hey, Just wanted to say thank you for being such an inspiration to my life. Since I've discovered your ministry everything that God has been speaking to me concerning his Glory has so been confirmed every time I visit your website. Thank you for your last e-mail to me and recommending The Spirit of Awakening tapes, they were awesome. They helped me out so much. concerning how to live in the Glory. God is just moving so mightily here in Colorado. Every night for the last 4 weeks we have been in revival, and I believe alot has to do with all the confirmation I'm getting from your ministry. The awakening has truly come in this area. God's glory is bringing purpose and direction finally to a region that has been fatherless for so long. I would love to be in one of your meetings just to experience the Glory that is so present even when I watch your webcasts. Thanks again for just being the vessel to be used in this time to awaken the church out of the church here in the Colorado area.
Struck by the Glory
Nov 15, 2007
Hi and greetings to all at MSM. I have a little testimony about this last weekend. Although I really wanted to be there at your Open Heavens Conference I didn't have the ability to be there. As a partner I really hope that I can visit you in the future. Anyways, I was watching some of the meetings on God TV over the internet and it has really been a lifechanging experience. It all started during the praise and continued all through the rest of the last couple of days. The presence of the Holy Spirt and Gods glory has been over me with such a heavieness I never have felt before. I just know deep inside my spirit that a change has taken place. I will never be the same after this weekend. And I am looking forward to see what that change brings me from this day on.
It was just such an awesome experience I had when Matt in one of the meetings said: "And I can sense, that there is someone at home behind the tv screen or the computer that has just been struck by the glory of the Lord", I was on my bed shaking in the glory. It's so wild, that Matt is so profeticly sharp. I know that I wasn't the only one who was hit by the glory in that moment, but still I thought it was amazing and quite a fun experience. I know that God told me to partner up with this ministry because I have much in commen with Matt - and the way he is wired, as he says himself. I also have a hunger and deep desperation in my spirit after more and more of Gods glory. I so want to be like Peter, when he was walking by, his shadow healed the sick. Because of this hunger and desperation I would just like to say thanks to Matt and all of you in MSM - you have really helped me along the way in my development and daily walk with Jesus. And the cd's and dvd's I have prevoiusly ordered from you have really given me growth to my spirit and also been livechanging. My hunger and my deep desperation has grown so much. So thank you for all you do at MSM. God bless you all abundantly.
The Glory is here!
Nov 15, 2007
Praise The Lord! I saw you at the Open Heavens Conference. Firey intense time of prep coming to close (YEARS!) Coming out of the caves of Adullam. To establish "Kingdom Embassies" unlike church as we know it. Pray for us. We have been Translated into the Kingdom. The Shift IS happenning! The Glory IS here!
Touched by God
Nov 15, 2007
Thank You for being able to be with you during Saturday and Sundays meeting. It was awesome, and I was touched by God and His presence. Thank you and God Bless You from Sweden.
Oct 19, 2007
Blessing Matt, I just returned from an conference at Christian International that was great. I felt that the Holy Spirit wanted me to check with the Elijah list to see if there's any updates. Right there was your word "God is releasing new assignments, pick up your mantle". Thanks, for you yielding to the Holy Spirit, God bless you and your family much.
Intense journey of cleansing
Oct 12, 2007
I was hesitant to submit a testimony, but I decided I should give glory to God where it’s due, and maybe this will encourage someone who can identify with me. Before the revival 2 weekends ago, I was open to the gifts of the Holy Spirit, yet I had limited experience and understanding of it. I had also never heard of Matt Sorger before. So I came a little wary, quite curious, but very spiritually hungry. I went to check it out, but I also really wanted a specific prophecy or word of wisdom. Instead of that nugget, God gave me the mother lode, knowing what I really needed. For a while, I hadn’t been able to really feel God’s presence in my times with Him. It also bothered me that I had lost my passion and sense of urgency for the work of the kingdom. I was full of discouragement, doubt, fear and complaints and couldn’t feel joyful. The first night, I knew I needed to go up when Matt gave the altar call. As I stood there praying, my hands started shaking in a way that wasn’t from me—that was a new experience. The Spirit gave other signals that He was working in me, but not in a particularly spectacular manifestation. However, I left so joyful, and I knew I had to come back the next day for more. The next night, encouraged by Matt’s urgings, I was determined to get everything God had for me that night. I let go of my inhibitions, particularly my internal intellectual debate and analysis, though not my rational observations. When Matt laid his hand on my head and prayed, I fell to the floor under the power of the Spirit. I had to stop questioning whether I was falling of my own accord or by the Spirit. My arms continued shaking, and then I began crying—wailing, actually—at the top of my lungs. Then the Spirit led me through a long, intense journey of cleansing, healing and empowerment. I’ve never had an experience quite like it. The bold prayers that flowed from me, the pictures that came into my mind, my bodily movements, and the prayers of the team members and others over me all seemed to move in sync. When I prayed for the removal of specific weaknesses, I went through an intense spiritual “surgery” during which I saw a giant blade in my chest. My hands were grasping at the carpet as if to brace myself, and then I began yelling at the top of my lungs while my body flailed and writhed. All the while, my rational mind calmly observed with interest. At one point, I envisioned gold liquid being poured into my stomach. Later on, I felt a unique tingling all through my belly as the Spirit filled me. Space doesn’t allow me to describe everything that happened to me on that floor. I still don’t fully understand it all, but I know I’ve been changed. I went home thinking this new joy is so great, even this alone would have been enough. But to get all that and a bag of chips…. I can’t believe life in the Spirit can be so ridiculously exciting! Certain Scriptures have come alive to me in a whole new way, like where Jesus says His disciples could receive the “full measure” of His joy (Jn 16:24, 17:13). It makes so much more sense now—to both my head and heart. And most importantly, I can’t believe how sweet the name of Jesus has become to me. I can’t remember the last time I was really in LOVE with Jesus—not just in terms of faithfulness, commitment, obedience, etc., but that simple form of delight like I get towards chocolate or great coffee. I’ve calmed down some since then, but I still have the joy and deep assurance of the power and purpose of God on my life. Now I need to claim the victories and anticipate how the Spirit will bring everything I received to full fruition. Praise the Lord for bringing Matt and his team and causing me to “randomly” (as if!) come to this revival. And thank you to Matt, the MSM folks and whoever was praying over me for obeying the Spirit so He could flow through you.
Youth and youth pastors were greatly impacted
Oct 12, 2007
Hi Matt, This past Sunday night we had our monthly New Jersey Youth Pastors' meeting. It ended with an hour long discussion on our revival meetings the previous two nights. One youth pastor shared honestly about her skepticism towards the ministry of Holy Spirit that was utterly shattered when God ministered to her in a powerful, life-changing manner. Her testimony, along with others, sparked an open conversation that may have been influential for other pastors also unsure about the work of Holy Spirit. Matt, I just wanted to share that your ministry impacted not only the youth who came but the youth pastors in our area as well, and to express my gratitude for all you've done this past weekend. Your ministry team was also a tremendous blessing. Praise God!
Oct 12, 2007
Matt, I wanted to confirm your recent word by telling you of a dream that I had one week prior to going to the Call in Nashville. In the dream, I was told that a husband had been chosen for me, but I had to be separated for one week prior to meeting him. I was lead to this cabin in the middle of nowhere. As I was left alone, I realized that I needed supplies. I jumped into a truck parked out front. As I did, these donut rings fell from the sky into the back of the truck. The Lord led me to Hosea 2:14-23. "Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her....In that day, declares the Lord, you will call me my husband; you will no longer call me my master. I will remove the names of the Baals from her lips...." He is so faithful to provide all the bride needs as we respond to His call to come to Him and be set apart. Many blessings in Him.
Oct 5, 2007
Matt, Thanks so much for coming to Bismarck! You’re right, my life isn’t the same, and it is a Good different. Now I better understand why God has you traveling, a laborer in His harvest field. God Bless you, Joy Tulowitzki
Awakening in the Glory
Oct 5, 2007
Dear Matt. My husband Mitch and I are Pastors in Co. Spgs,Co. About 6 months ago I started teaching on redigging the wells of our spirtual fathers, and about Hezekiah and how he restored the Glory back into the temple. My husband started to teach about picking up the mantle. Since we've been getting revelation on this, we have been experiencing the Glory of God like we have never seen before in our meetings.Drunks and drug addicts have been running to the alter crying out for God. Satanists calling upon God. Even men standing outside on the streets listening in and crying uncontrollingly. I preached one night at a conference on the Glory and everyone in the room could not stand up because of the weight of the Glory in the place. My husband said the mantle of Kathryn Kuhlman was upon me that night and all he could do was cry. One day I was searching on the web in Charisma Magazine under conferences and I happened to come across your picture with the conference "Awakening to the Glory" and had to click in. I have never heard of you before but the title drew me in because of what we had been experiencing in our meetings. I started to watch you speaking at Dr Che's church and you so happened to be speaking on the glory , the mantles, the redigging of wells - absolutely everything we had been speaking on. We were so blown away and blessed so much by your simple but yet so anointed message we had to tape you and listen to it everyday after that. Since then the Glory of God is so evident in our lives that sometimes we can't even eat or sleep. I so appreciate your teachings and your website. It is truly helping me to understand a little bit more about what I am experiencing. Now when my Pastor asks me to pray or testify it's like this shifting as you say enters the room, and the Glory comes in. Sometimes I'm almost afraid to open my mouth because I know the Glory will show up, but as fast as it enters in it can leave just as quick. And it grieves me just as much when people step in when they shouldn't. Thank you so much Matt. Keep pressing on.
Sep 20, 2007
We used to live in your area and moved to North Carolina 2 years ago as a call into ministry. It blessed me to read about your revelation about Rosh Hoshanah because God has been stirring us to learn about our Jewish roots. For the first time last week I was reading what Rosh Hoshanah is really about. It turns out that our ministry began in September also, and as I look back I see that significant things have happened for us in September the past couple of years. Joined Together in Yeshua.
Healing outbreak will come to Syracuse
Aug 24, 2007
Hi, Last night 8-24-07 Chuck Pierce spoke at the Transformation Syracuse gathering. He spoke of God's moving throughout New York State. He told of the Matt Sorger Healing Revival happening at the United Nations.......... Later on, he gave the word that "Healing Out Break will come to Syracuse" that God has chosen Syracuse to be the place of the release of His healing, signs and miracles...... Because of God's zeal to heal the land. He will start healing the people and then the land will be healed. This is great news for us abiding in Syracuse "the city of salt" (covenant). I long to see God's healing touch on us individually and corporately. I thought this news might be of intrest to you. You are doing a great job! Strength and courage to you my brother... God's peace
Lighting the Torch
Jul 31, 2007
The beginning of this year the Lord touched me in the meetings one at JAC and another in a Spanish church near Dallas. All I know is that I was drawn to the Spirit of Worship and God was fanning the flame that was lit back in the Argentine revival. Once again to see Che my former pastor who also went there was a sense of unity as I saw the video on your website at Harvest Rock. I know more than ever that the Lord has made a tremendous investment in me ever since my salvation at 16 in Arg. then going thru the charismatic revival, going with a new testament church movement church planting in Pasadena and then become credentialed with AG. Due to a personal tragedy I felt my time of ministry had ended. Only recently have I remarried and find myself in apostolic/prophetic church and the Lord is restoring the years the locust had eaten and I continue to minister at Daystar in prayer and as a greeter at JAC. Thanks for lighting the torch again and hope to join you on mission soon as the Spirit allows.
God has told me to take action
Jul 30, 2007
I wanted to thank you.... I just went to church in a middle school in Monroe, NJ. Heard you were going to be there. At the end everyone was in a hurry to leave. I asked you for prayer (the Holy Spirit gave you insight that I was in an abusive marriage) I didn't want to take up to much of your time so I forgot to thank you and tell you that your sermon was very ecouraging and was a confirmation that God has been telling me to take action, and the obedience mixed with faith just sets the stage!!! Thank you so much for yeilding to the Holy Spirit and going forth with what He gave you to share!!! God Bless, Lisa
Excited about what God is going to do
Jun 28, 2007
Hey Gang, Great seeing you at Upper Room at Rodney Howard Browne. I also went to NYC - very powerful. The time was to short - but it was great! Just the start of what is to come to New York and across the nations. Matt, you have a great team with awesome hearts for God - I am excited to see how God is going to use them and you not only across the world - but right here in the USA - and in Long Island and throughout New York - long time needed. I am so excited to see what God is going to do in Sept 07 and thoughout the rest of the year while He prepares his people for an explotion of the Holy Spirit in 2008. The things God is showing me is blowing me away - we will need to fasten our seat belts - I am excited. I appreciate you Matt, for not only your heart for God, but for your obedience to the Holy Spirit - you are a fresh rain that has been needed for so long. I cannot wait till November -I will be gathering many to come to your conference, and I know their lives will never be the same. I want to partner with your ministry and as God increases me, and He will, I will increase my giving because you are part of this end time harvest and I want to help any way I can! God bless you all. Many angels around you to protect you and guide you in everything you do! With Christs Love, Mary D.
Confirmation to what the Lord had shown us
Jun 22, 2007
Praise the Lord!!! I had just gotten home from our prayer group and was a little down because there was only two of us there (this ministry is in the baby stages). And as I started watching the conference I was immediately refreshed because everything that you were teaching was a conformation to what the Lord had been showing us (just a few hours before) about the Fresh Oil and Fresh Fire release and the total shift about not walking on the defense but offence carrying with you the Glory of God through the intimate relationship that we must maintain with HIM. I received by faith in the Spirit when you were seeing the release of the Glory and the Fire and had the manifestation in my hands, Praise God!!!! Thank you Brother I can't wait to see the rest of the programs. I have my DVR set so I can share with others. In Christ, Kim H.
Jun 13, 2007
THAT IS GREAT !!! Well done!! Praise God!! I pray you obtain more opportunities to touch other nations in this way! I look forward to hearing the testomonies of those in attendance!
God is so awesome
Jun 13, 2007
Hello brother Matt. Wow, Wow, Wow. I am so happy and full of Joy with what the Lord has used you to do in the UN office and with its delegates. O praise God, God is so awsome, and in this endtime he is moving is his power, as of old.
Praising God with you
Jun 13, 2007
Praising God with you. God is so good and He is doing great things in the earth today.
World changing meeting
Jun 13, 2007
Wow! Glory to God! What an awesome meeting! May the blessing of the Lord continue to rest on you and your family. I pray for the protection of the blood of Jesus over your whole team as you move on from this time at the UN. Wow. Talk about a world changing meeting. Thanks for sharing it with us!
God blessed my daughter financially
Jun 7, 2007
Hi Matt It was great to see you and your family in California I was blessed as always!!! I learned what the counsel of peace feels like. WOW!!! I wanted to thank you for praying for my daughter Alexandria. That was a huge blessing for my daughter and me!!!!!! Alex gave a seed gift, all she had, for a PT Cruiser. That week God blessed her with almost 4 times the amount she gave and since she is almost a teenager she says: "Mom I really love giving a seed gift to God!!! Look how much money I made this week"!!!! And then she blessed me with saying: "Is that why you give your seed offerings"? And I got to tell her more about why I give and sowing seed, and that you can't outgive GOD. He will always give you more than you give, WHICH I LOVE!! God takes care of the fatherless, which I am very thankful for... So my actions speak louder than my words and I get to show her with my example. Thank you Jesus for always coming through for us and giving us so much This is my daughters and my testimony for when you came to California. Thank you for being obedient to the call on your life and all the sacrifices you make daily to have His Presence. I am still believing and praying for 1 million partners because you have so much to do for GOD and HIS KINGDOM.
God has changed my life
May 31, 2007
Dear Matt Sorger Ministries, I recently subscribed to the MSM Intercessory Prayer Team. I am very excited to be a part of this prayer army. I can't express my gratitude to God enough--he's been really changing my life and MSM has had a big part in what has been happening! You are all on my heart and it is my privilege to pray for you. It's awesome to be able to go to MSM conferences where the Holy Spirit moves so powerfully. Thank you Matt, and your family and staff--you are all very appreciated. So, please keep me on the Prayer Team list. I look forward to your emails. God bless you abundantly, Lori C.
Flowing with the Holy Spirit
May 18, 2007
Hi Matt: I'm Eric, and I played keyboard for the services you just completed in Austin (Cathedral of Praise). I'm sorry that I had to leave early Sunday night, but between my early-rising engineering job and my two kids (ages 2 and 3), I just needed to get some rest before Monday morning. I just wanted to say thanks for some fantastic time of worship/ministry. You have a very good way of flowing with the Holy Spirit in worship, and the way you mingle the worship and healing ministry is indicative of a very mature and close relationship with the Lord and the Holy Spirit. Mahesh C. sometimes ministers in a similar way when he's here, and it's great to flow in that way both with you and with him. Thanks for a great ministry experience this weekend and for continuing to follow the ebb and flow of the Holy Spirit wherever He leads. Awesome. Thanks, Eric T.

Blown away by the Power of God
Apr 19, 2007
Dear Matt, After attending your conference this past weekend I am blown away by the power of God displayed and I personally experienced. I was literally thrown around so many times I lost count. In just one day afterwards I already see a difference in my clarity hearing from God and new changes in my husband. I hear from God with less doubt and unbelief, more strength in my prayers and expectation to recieve from Him. I could go on and on, but what I want to share this morning is this if the first and very first ministry I experienced what you spoke about it. You spoke, gave scriptures about it and then SHOWED ME IT!!!! Your ministry is the first to bring the word of God alive in the natural for me. The level of frustration I have felt over the last 4 years as I grew in Christ reached such a peak I was hoarse from crying out to God - Where are you? The church could not show His power, they talked and talked about it, yet I never found it. I attended meetings and Bible studies and have been planting God's word in my heart for 4 years, but did not see enough fruit. I was so desperate and hungry to actually breakthrough and see the God I read about in the Bible. I would read and then look for it in the natural and I did not find it. I would see a glimpse here and there, but frankly the promises I was holding onto grew weaker and weaker as the months went by and I saw no powerful results. As my friends told me I may have to wait 20 - 30 years to see God, I was devestated....I was like NO! I want Him NOW! I have fasted, I have tithed and gave offerings and yet this power eluded me so I thought I was doing something wrong, I thought my prayers were wrong, my sin too much what was holding me back from God? I have never seen the level of assurance and expectancy for God to show up as I did in your meetings this weekend. I am changed from hoping God answers my prayers to excitement and anticipation for how He will do it. For this reason we have decided to join your ministry and put a portion of our tithe to God into your ministry - where you can ignite Long Island and make changes happen. We have become partners with you and I am so very excited! It is not about money - it is about finally breaking free from myself and finally dying so I can LIVE! It is difficult for me to break the "Religion" thought on tithing to your home church, but I feel led by the Spirit to join you. I have been sowing into dead soil for 2 years and now I feel as if I found rich earth to produce a harvest. As an oncology nurse I am overwhelmed to see so many lives ruined by the enemy. I want to offer more than sympthay - I want them saved, set free and set on fire. Through your obedience to God, Souls will be saved and most dear to my heart captives released and the unseen loved. I am very thankful to have found your ministry and to have met you, although we did not talk long as you blew on me and sent me across the room haha I am looking forward to what God has in store for me, and thank you for providing an atmosphere to allow God to show up and blow the roof off of my life!!! May He bless you more and more and again Thank you for your commitment.

I pray that God will allow me to be a blessing to Matt and his team as you guys have blessed me and my son! Much Love, Monique L.
Forever blessed and changed
Apr 19, 2007
Dear MSM. I just wanted to write and tell you all that I was forever blessed and changed by Holy Spirit Himself I as encountered His presence in a new and awesome way at the Glory, Signs and Wonders Conference 07 in Lake Grove NY this past weekend. The ministry that God has entrusted into my hands, Aimee's Children in Christ (named after my pastor and mentor Aimee Kovacs who went home to be with the Lord Oct 2005) have become Global Harvest Partners with MSM. I am so excited about what God is doing in His Church, and I am blessed by Matt and his family and all who serve in MSM and how God is using you all to touch countless lives of the lost and those who are walking with the Lord and are being brought into a deeper intimacy with our God. Thank you so much for your faithfulness to Jesus our King and to His Body, may God bless you above and beyond measure. I prayed and asked the Lord to raise up my 14 year old son to be on fire for God and His ways like Matt Sorger, let it be so in Jesus Name AMEN!! In God's service and love, Susan R.
We had a visitation Sunday after the Conference
Apr 19, 2007
Hey there We had a visitation Sunday after the Conference – our Pastor N. never got to preach – The Spirit of the Lord came into this place and what a Holy Ghost time we all had. Some folks may have felt weird, but it was totally God. You know N. was at the last night’s meeting – in the morning his prayer was to allow God to do what He wanted, to dispatch the heavenly hosts around us – WOW. I woke up on Sunday and as soon as I thought about God, my body started shaking. I started to giggle as I realized I was on Worship Team and asked, “Lord how will I be able to contain myself during worship?” I couldn’t and I didn’t – Praise God. I am currently praying and fasting that we can again allow the Spirit of God to run the service next week – Hallelujah! I am praying for more of God in my life – I want visions and dreams and to see heavenly angels. (I also would like to have an awareness of demons in order to cast them out – I believe God is calling me deeper into prayer for healing and deliverance) – Please let Matt know how blessed I was to serve with him this weekend. His parents are such a blessing to everyone.
Word of Knowledge, Being healed
Apr 5, 2007
I was at the Glory Invasion conference, when Matt Sorger called out a word of Knowledge that someone's shoulder is being healed. I started to move my shoulder around and I felt my shoulder starting to twitch as it started to twitch the pain left. Praise God I have no more pain in my Shoulder. Thank you Jesus!
Struck By the Anointing & Direct Confirmation
Apr 5, 2007
Hi, I was just at the Glory Zone conference in Sedona where Matt spoke and I was not only struck by the power of God presence and the anointing on this young man of God, but have been greatly blessed by the giftings that Our Father has given him. God spoke directly through him to me, and I feel sure he is not aware of how this was a direct confirmation to what God spoke to my heart while in the presence and glory of God several months ago. God's best for this ministry, Tina B.
Awakened by God
Mar 31, 2007
Hello. Matt I am so glad you could make it to Covenant Church over the weekend. I got awakened more to God. Thank you for coming and I hope you liked it. Therisa K.

God’s power in the airport
Jan 14, 2007
I most recently attended the meetings Matt spoke at in Fort Worth, Texas. Matt's prophetic teachings were extordinary as usually, but what I received this time was more than a teaching. I got blasted by the Holy Spirit in an extreme measure. Within those blastings so much occurred I can not even begin to share all that the Holy Spirit was working in me, convicting me of, and preparing me for. It was awesome. What I can do is share a few cool highlights of the afterglow. I had the most awesome manifestation of the Holy Spirit EVER upon returning to Detroit. First off let me say Matt had spoken on the favor of God, and related it back to obedience and blessing. So....I am in the Dallas airport checking in my bags and trying to get my boarding pass, when the attendant tells me that I will be assigned a seat at the boarding gate. My initial thought was, " Lord please let there be a seat on this plane for me I need to get home tonight." I get to the boarding gate only to find out that I had been upgraded to first class (FAVOR). As, I am standing in line I hear some people behind me talking about Todd Bently so I started chatting with these two women. Just as we were getting ready to board the plane, the line stops moving and I say to them, " Let me guess; you're the intercessor and you're the prophet." As soon as they acknowledged this as being true, the plane began to board again and I lost them. So, I have now landed in Detroit and I'm now standing at the conveyor belt waiting for my luggage when I turn around and see the ladies I had spoken with earlier. Only this time they are with a small group. I am suddenly drawn to this couple within their group. We start chatting about our weekends and as we are doing so I get stoked with the fire of God! I am getting really, really hot, and all I am doing is just standing there. So, I followed the prompting of the Holy Spirit and asked if I could pray the fire of God over them, but before I did this I had a word of knowledge for them both which opened up their hearts to me. WELL...as I began to pray the Holy Spirit clothed himself with me (as Matt had talked about in the meeting) and I began to prophesy all kinds of things to the husband. I gave him a very specific word. It was rockin. Some of the words was a direct response to what he had been talking to the Lord about in the privacy of his own heart during his conference. I was so filled with the Holy Ghost as I was prophesying. I was hammering out the word in tongues (unashamedly), in the middle of DTW and shaking under the power of God (and so was he!!). The funniest part was I had such a boldness I had not one care as to what people might have been thinking. Well, it does not stop there. The Holy Ghost then proceeds to smoke this guy's wife. He (Holy Spirit) gives her a word and then she goes down under the power of God! Right there next to the conveyor belt, in the middle of Metro Detroit airport, Praise God!!. They evidently were no more concerned with what people thought than I was. What was funny was that some security people must have been walking by us when this was all occurring because I thought I heard my friends say something about security coming our way. As soon as I heard this I said (in my heart) Holy Spirit what are we going to do? He came on me in boldness and spoke into my heart, "They might be able to take prayer out of the schools but they are not taking it out of the airport." Security never approached me, but I knew the Holy Spirit would speak to them personally if they had a problem with his showing up. He had placed such a boldness on me in that moment I felt like Peter on the day of Pentecost! It was awesome!! This weeks power for life video is titled: "hold on to your prophetic word". Well, this is part of a prophetic word I am holding onto coming to pass in my life. God is good!!! Many other supernatural happenings have followed since those meetings but these are the highlights that people seem to be the most enamored with. I could write of at least 4 other happenings that occured within that 24 hour time span where the Holy Ghost just showed up. The bottom line is that we are supernatural beings because of who dwells within us. If we died on that cross with him 2000 years ago, then we have also been resurrected with him and are seated at the right hand of God. If everything that he has is also mine...then I better be living a supernatural life or else all I have is a bunch of frozen theology. Besides all of that.. living for God is an adventure. These are the adventures I want my life to be filled with, and according to the book of Acts the Lord expects me to live my life filled with these Holy Spirit adventures!!! I am no one special...just a little handmaiden of the Lord. Obedient and available. If the Lord can use me..trust me, he can use you!! I forgot to mention something important...... that morning was the last service Matt held. During the minisrty time I asked the Holy Spirit to take me on an adventure that day. I told him how much I loved his adventures, and how I desired to join him on one. And he provided me one! Yeah Holy Spirit you are soo fun!!! On the greatest adventure of my life, Vicky "firegirl"
Emotional Healing - Loss of Weight
Jan 10, 2007
In Jan. of this year I attended a MSM meeting in Irving, Tx. I wanted to testify to the power of the Holy Spirit and how my life has been changed since. 2006 had been a very rough year for me. It was a year of major subtraction in my life in almost every way. I lost my dream job, my new car, several friendships I’d had for 8yrs+, went through a broken engagement and took a $10k a year pay cut to work at a job I did not like. One thing seemed to happen after the other and due to stress of it all I developed a severe hormonal imbalance which caused a number of health issues for me (unexplainable weight gain, headaches, nausea, severe anxiety, dizziness, depression, acne breakouts all over my neck and chin, extreme exhaustion and adrenal fatigue.) It was incredibly difficult to get up in the mornings, no matter how much sleep I had, and sometimes at work anxiety would hit me so bad I would have to pray in tongues at my desk under my breath just to make it through the day. I would break down crying at least 3 times a week and the slightest bit of stress would send me into panic. I sought the Lord all last fall for healing (emotionally and physically). I knew I was depressed on top of everything else and had also slipped into despair. I did not know what was going on with my body or emotions, and received the Doctor’s diagnosis just a few days before Matt came to town. I had already purposed to press into the Lord with everything I had in 2007 and start the year off right. I say all that to paint a picture of where I was and how the Lord is restoring. On Jan. 10, 2007 I prayed all day that the Lord would meet with me in a special way. That night, just as the meeting was coming to a close Matt prayed a prayer about receiving the sword of the Lord if you wanted to walk more consecrated with Jesus. It sounded good to me so I stood and said yes in my heart. As Matt prayed, I began to feel the power of the Holy Spirit touching me, and the weight of the glory of God was falling on me. I was at the very back of the room so I knew no one was laying hands on me. My body got hot all over and I swaying under the power of Holy Spirit. The glory was so thick and heavy on me I could barley stand. I had a vision of the arm of the Lord, from His elbow down, and I saw Him reach into my heart and began pulling stuff out. I could feel all of this. He reached in and forcefully began pulling junk out of my heart. I felt like some one was grabbing hand full’s of a thick black substance and scooping it out. I could literally feel it coming out of my heart. The power of God was on me so strong I couldn’t stand anymore and fell to the floor. I began weeping and weeping on the floor. I felt I could not sink low enough into the floor and it was the best place to be. I felt the fear of the Lord as I was crying, but I also felt His love and kindness for me. I heard Him say to me 3 times that He was going to change me and when I got up off the floor I would walk differently with Him. I was so undone in my heart, and I said Yes Lord, whatever you want to do, WHATEVER! Then He spoke and said that He was going to deliver me of some stuff "real quick" and my body began to convulse uncontrollably. Electric shockwaves would run through my body from the top of my head down into my body. This lasted for about 20-30 minutes. I tried to get up once when I thought things were done, but the Lord said He was not done yet. I fell back down on the floor under the power of the Holy Spirit. I heard the Lord speak to me again and He said, "Now you are going to shake with my fire and I am going to fill you with my power." I didn’t realize until I tried to stand up again how drunk in the spirit I was. I could barley walk, and had to be dragged to my car so they could close the church. I gave my keys to a total stranger who volunteered to bring my car around for me! For the next 2.5 hours my body shook under the power of God. I could barley talk, I could barley walk, and I could not drive. I sat in my car until 1:30 in the morning shaking and shaking and shaking. Finally a deep peace settled over me and a feeling of rest, and I was able to drive. As I fell asleep the Lord said that He was going to fill me with a deep joy. I woke the next morning with such joy and 7 months later, it has not gone away! I waited to testify because at the time, I did not know all of what the Lord did...I just knew He did something. Since January, most of the weight I gained last yr has fallen off, I am slowly weaning myself off the hormonal supplement I take because my body needs less and less of it, I am no longer exhausted all the time, I wake up with energy, no more headaches, no more depression or despair, no more constant nausea or crying jags, ALL of that constant anxiety is broken and I have a since of well being again and peace. I am back to my joyful, stable, happy self. I feel the presence of the Lord and His Glory way more in my personal prayer time, and worship. I thank Jesus for the ministry of MSM and the price that has been paid by Matt and his team to see transformation in the lives of so many across the world. May His richest blessing come to you and His glory increase on your ministry!

This is the most accurate, powerful, and timely message I have ever heard! Congratulations on your End Time Assignment! James E. M.

To the MSM Team!! I just have to testify as to what God did last night at the 'Open Heaven's conference. I was in the back of the room, as I usually am, and Robert Stearns was worshipping. Most people were up and dancing and singing, not me, I was on my face before God, first in repentance, then in reverence before Him. What He showed me was so amazing I had to share!! While on the floor face to the rug, prayer shawl over me head, God entered the room, not just walked in and stood near me, but FILLED the room with His presence! So much so, I could not breathe in His presence. Then He almost 'hovered' above the room, again filling it, and revealed Himself to me, in a way I have never seen before. He showed me His heart, His chest opened up, with a light that was so bright, and warm, no not warm HOT, and yet I did not get burned, nor did it hurt to look at, it was the most amazing 'light' I have EVER seen. No words could do it justice, but what He showed me in this 'light of His heart' was, He was receiving the worship, receiving the praises of His people, and He was so pleased in it. He then began to show me His Hearts love for us! A parent can love their kid, and a husband can love his wife, but this love.... Is so great, it is unfathomable, so immense. More than just a daddy love, more than just the bridal love, just so much more!!! I was so awestruck, I could not move. I found it hard to breathe, and yet in that moment I could feel the Fathers Heart, because He showed it to me. I have been brought back to the love I had, when I first knew Him, and that pales in comparison as to how much He loves me. I have been praying for His heart, and He in His great mercy and grace showed me. There is more, but I don't want to take up too much of your time. One more thing. When I woke up this morning, I got a call from my unbelieving (Jewish brought up Catholic) mother. She said 'Is there anything going on at your church tonight?' I said 'no but there is a preacher in town whom I support on a monthly basis, why do you ask?', she says to my amazement, 'I want to go, I think I need Jesus." Trying so hard to contain my excitement, I just said, 'ok mom, be at my house at 6, and we will go together. 'Well I hung up the phone, and danced like David!!! Praised, and worshipped. So I will be back tonight, ready for whatever God has in store!!!! God is so amazing! Thank you all so much for your hard work and dedication to God, in furthering His Kingdom here in NY and every nation, He sends you to. I pray He will bless you as much as you bless others!!! Holding His Hand, Seeking His Face, Safe In His Arms, Barrie
Never the same again
Nov 30, 2006
Dear Matt Sorger & Ministries, This weekend I have been touched by the Holy Fire and Glory of God and I will never be the same again. His Love and Holy Presence has touched me and changed me forever. There is such a hunger and thirst for Jesus that was put in me starting from the beginning of the conference to the end. My spirit is refreshed, revived, and on fire to seek Jesus in prayer and intercession. Thank you, Matt Sorger and ministry, for your heart to see the Glory of God manifest in his people. Blessings and Shalom, In His Love, Felix G.
God’s anointing thick in our home
Sep 28, 2006
WOW! The past weekend was full of glory and power over the Internet! God's anointing presence was thick throughout our home all weekend.....a depth I had NEVER experienced before. The seed of burning desire was planted within me and I want more! I want MORE...MORE...MORE of a higher communion with the Father. I gained many insights and directional answers to prayer just through the sharing and teachings God placed on many who shared. My spirit was quickened beyond measure. After you left the Leesburg, VA area several weeks ago, God had been tugging at my heart to continue to sow into your monthly ministry. I had fervently been praying if this was God's will....When Veronica was prophesying there were those listening over the Internet that would sow into the ministry....At that exact, precise moment God was directing me to sow monthly. I admire the Ministry's accountability in attempting to make sound financial decisions. I would like to sow into the purchase of the home for the ministry's use. God does call us to be responsible stewards and I am impressed by that aspect of your ministry. I am placing a check into the mail for $1,000 and I am pledging to continue that amount for the next 6 months, in which time I will take it back to the Lord in prayer. Much continued love and God's blessings, Valerie, online
My Spirit leaped
Sep 28, 2006
Thank you so much for airing the conference! When Matt asked a girl her name and she said April, my spirit leaped and I knew whatever Matt was going to say was for me, too. I grew up in Japan where Christians are NOW only 0.5% population. I was raised in a Buddhist family, went to a Catholic preschool/kindergarten, learned about Jesus, but nobody told me that God would speak to us. So I gave my life to Him when I was 30 after I moved to the states, God's hands have been on my life since I was little, like Matt said to April. So I took everything God gave to her into my spirit! Also I thank you for the teaching on Discernment. I was just crying out to God this week for greater discernment and such sensitivity to Holy Spirit. Blessings, more fire to you guys, too Nami, online
Jesus is the healer
Sep 28, 2006
Greetings from Cranbrook BC Canada: I wanted to testify of the goodness and grace and love of the Lord as I tuned into your conference this morning…I was deeply moved to enter into intercession and often I found Him leading me to pray and then you would speak out that which He had prompted me to pray. He continually reminded me that Jesus is the healer; Jesus is the healer; Jesus is the healer. He was bringing Israel to mind and then you spoke of those called to the nations. The greatest gift of all is love and his great grace. His gracious words that amazes His people. Blessings and may Jesus the healer be glorified, Leslie, Cranbrook, BC, Canada
Mexico Revival Report
Jul 12, 2006
Salvations and Miracles as Youth Invade Mexico July 2006—Zacatlan, Mexico · Over 1000 salvations · About 4500 in attendance · Hundreds experience the baptism of the Holy Spirit · Hundreds healed · Team members teach, preach, cast out demons and operate in the gifts of the Spirit, including words of knowledge and healing Over 1,000 people were saved and hundreds were healed, delivered and filled with the Holy Spirit on a recent trip, as a Fresh Fire Ministries (FFM) team invaded Mexico, bringing the saving, healing and delivering power of Jesus to spiritually hungry and hurting people. On this fourth annual Mexico missions trip, FFM joined forces with revivalist Matt Sorger and a team of 38 (mostly young people) between the ages of 14 and 66. This trip has been a summer highlight for the ministry in recent years and this year was no exception. FFM has made it a priority to invite and welcome young people and youth groups on this trip because we know that God is going to powerfully use them for the coming revival. Todd Bentley, revivalist and founder of FFM, wants to teach and equip the younger generations how to walk with the Holy Spirit so as to bring the kingdom of God to earth. This year team members came from the United States, Canada, and the UK to minister the love of Christ to the Mexican people of Zacatlan. This was FFM’s second year ministering in this small town of Zacatlan, located in the Sierra Mountains. It was wonderful to again see the pastors and people we met and built relationships with last year. Many people in the street recognized the Fresh Fire team right away. They welcomed us back to their city with open arms. The first few nights the team was given opportunities to grow in faith and be stretched by God. Eight mini miracle festivals were held in the surrounding villages of Tepango, Amixtlan, Ahuacatlan, Tepezintla, San Cristobal, Papaxtla, San Miguel Tenango, Altamira, and Acaxochitlan. Team members were given the responsibility of conducting a festival. They preached and taught the word of God, gave the altar call, and released the power of the Holy Spirit before inviting the sick and oppressed to come forward for prayer. Team members saw miracles, signs and wonders happen right before their eyes, all to the glory of God. Here are just a few of the miracles that took place: · One woman, partially blinded for 10 years, received complete restoration of her sight · 12 people with migraine headaches were totally healed · Many with back pain reported that pain left after prayer · A seven-year-old boy’s deaf ear opened and he was able to hear · Many team members received words of knowledge for specific physical conditions. · Over 200 people received Christ as their Lord and Savior · Many received the baptism of the Holy Spirit God’s love shown through kindness During the day teams were sent out to implement different outreaches. They did various activities to build relationships with people in order to share the love of Christ. The outreaches included playing soccer and/or basketball with the local children, performing skits, singing and sharing testimonies in the town plaza, and going door to door to invite families to the festival and ask if they had any prayer needs. Many Mexican people felt the tangible love of Christ as someone listened, played, or prayed with them. We believe that acts of kindness create an atmosphere for the Spirit to move. During the weekend the team passed out flyers advertising the main miracle festival in Zacatlan and allowing the Holy Spirit to lead and give them divine appointments. A few times team members were invited into the homes of local people to pray for them and family members. Mayor Gives Stadium to FFM FFM enjoyed much favor with the major of the city as he gave the stadium, (the place where the festival was to be held) free of charge for a second year in a row. Thank you Lord! The week of village festivals and outreach concluded with the large city-wide miracle festival in Zacatlan. God Visits The main festival services began with an explosion of powerful worship led by local musicians. The atmosphere was charged as the shofar blew and we welcomed the presence of the Holy Spirit. Matt Sorger started off the meetings building the faith level of the people by sharing testimonies and calling out words of knowledge. An anointing to release the glory of God came upon Matt. Many responded to the words of knowledge and came forward to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. They were encouraged and refreshed in the presence of God. The people traveled from as far as two hours away to see and hear the good news of Jesus Christ. Here are some of the healings that took place: · A young woman, deaf for 19 years, began to hear after receiving prayer. Tears of joy streamed down her cheeks as she rejoiced in her healing · One man who had not been able to walk without the use of his crutches for nine years, began to walk normally without his crutches. Strength returned to his legs with each step he took · A 90-year-old woman, stricken blind for the last 10 years of her life, began to see · A man who could not move his left leg fully for 10 years, began to walk without his cane One team member, a medical doctor, verified and confirmed the following healings and miracles that took place after prayer: · One elderly man with rheumatoid arthritis in his knees testified the pain had left and that he was totally healed. · A woman who, as a result of a severe burn, experienced pain in her legs, testified that the pain was gone · An elderly woman with a blind eye and pain in that eye was able to see and the pain left · A woman with nerve and shoulder pain proclaimed the pain was gone and she was healed Hotel Owner and Assistants Receive Jesus Brent Borthwick, FFM Mexico coordinator, while making arrangements at the hotel, became friends with the owner and his staff. At first, the hotel owner would make statements referring to “your religion” or “your belief.” But we knew God was softening his heart. The Lord used the team to change the atmosphere of the hotel and usher in God’s presence. Eventually the owner’s heart changed and he began to make statements like, “I’m not part of your religion yet.” It was as if he was prophesizing his own destiny. By divine appointment, Matt, Brent and team member, Arthur Garcia, met with the owner one night after returning from the festival. They shared the plan of salvation and he prayed to receive Christ. Later they were also able to share the gospel with the hotel manager and he too received Jesus as savior. Through growing relationship with the FFM team over the course of the trip, the hotel owner and manager had seen the reality of Jesus and decided they wanted the same relationship with this living God. Satan’s Plan for Harm Defeated After returning from the festival Sunday afternoon, and just seconds after dropping off the team at the hotel, one of the team’s vans lost control and caused a three car collision, hitting cars behind it and in front of it. One team member was grazed and pushed by the van without major injury. Team member, Cherie Nelson, said she felt God had revealed to her that the enemy would attack in an attempt to bring harm or disaster to the team. Before she left home she had shared her spiritual warning with her pastor and intercessors to pray against this attack. If the van lost control one minute earlier it would have hit team members getting out of the van and walking in front or behind it. Thank God for His protection and the prayers of the saints! God is good! Mexico Team Forever Changed After the FFM team’s holy invasion of Zacatlan, they left amazed at how God had worked in power, touched so many lives, and used them to bring salvation and healing to so many. Here are some excerpts of e-mails we’ve received from Mexico team members of how the trip affected them: “The trip was awesome! I have learned so much and God has shown me so much. I am completely changed because of the trip. Thank you.” Gina “The trip was wonderful. I learned so much. The Holy Spirit united us in an awesome way. The leaders were great too. It couldn’t have been better. I was blessed beyond measure and truly for the ways that the Holy Spirit touched me, the things that He taught me and the impartations I received, I will never be the same, Praise God! I sincerely hope that I will be able to go on another Fresh Fire trip.” Carol. The trip was amazing! God showed me His intimacy like never before!

Thank God for you Matt. Where do I start. I am from Ohio. Me and a Friend were in the Tent meeting in Pa, 2006. The past 4 -5 years I have been praying for revival in our region. Had dreams about the Welsh Revival.. In the dream I was speaking to someone in my church, said that the next move of God would be greater than the Welsh Revival. God has move me, in for-runner anointing to believe and to birth the revival that He wants to bring in our region. Weeks before the tent meeting I was praying for an impartation , and drove 450 Miles one way to get that impartation. I was not disappointed. We arrived there on Thursday for the 2 pm meeting. Then you were ministering in the 7 pm meeting. We were in the group you called up front, and you released the Revival and Awakening Mantle upon us. In fact Jeff and I were the first ones up front .. There was a powerful impartation ...into us. I have waited this long to write because God has been doing so much in me since that meeting. I feel now that I am being called out to release the Revival Mantle into others. I also ordered the Awakening CD and The Fore-Runner teaching series. They have also blessed me all the more. Thank you for being Faithful to the Call of God, Matt. God is using you to touch lives. Thank you, Robert B.

Dear Matt, I was at CLC (Christian Life Center) when you were there preaching. You laid hands on me and my brother. The first night, I believe it was Thursday; you baptized my brother in the Holy Spirit. That night, my brother came home and told me about how great it felt, he told me that I should come the next night. The next night, my whole family went, and we worshiped and praised. Then you called my brother up and you then again laid hands on him, and told him his future. You said he will grow up and preach to all the nations spreading the word of God. Then he had collapsed again, and my family and many others were leaning over him praying. I was so thankful for having God put him on this earth. As I was praying over him, I heard a lady speaking in tongues right into my ear, almost like she was telling me something. Then right after that, you then called me up. You laid hands on me, and told me a short glimpse of my future. You had said that God will put a shell around you and keep you safe from others. And that my brother and me will preach to others together and separate. Anyway, the whole point of me telling you all of this is that I used to be all nerves and scared to make the wrong choice. And I used to think I was going to go to hell for all of the sins I made. But after you told me all of this, I feel more relaxed and devoted to God. Now I’m not worried about making some huge mistake, because I know that God will lead me in the right way. You set sort of a Godly flame in our hearts, a flame that will lead us in the right way to heaven. Your Fan, Patch, OH
I will never be the same
Jun 22, 2006
Hi - I recently attended the Matt Sorger Miracles, Signs and Wonder Conference in Cincinnati, OH at Christian Life Center, June 22 - 25, 2006. I have to tell you that I was greatly impacted by what I saw on Matt and immediately told God I REALLY like what Matt walks in, Father. I knew I had walked into a divine appointment and was about to experience and witness something truly amazing. My life was dramatically altered and changed during that weekend. I will never be the same. I've been to lots of conferences, listened to many mighty and anointed men and women of God and have been touched by His power, but I was finally privileged to "see" what my heart had been crying out for but wasn't sure existed. God is a faithful God. During the impartation service Saturday afternoon something even more powerful happened. I may not know the full impact of what took place for sometime. After prayer and after getting up from the floor I had to go home and go to bed. That was around 5:30 pm. The anointing didn't lift until around 11pm. I signed up to become a partner and gave my 1st partner monthly offering of $30.00 in Saturday's meeting. I have never partnered with any ministry before at this level or with Matt's anointing. I understood from the Holy Ghost that my partnering with MSM was a very strategic thing. I immediately began to sense the impact of partnering. I had written on the partner sign up card and asked for prayer to be debt free and my teenage son who needs a fresh touch from God. All that weekend and the next several days I could actually feel the prayer covering from MSM. My life and my house were totally affected. I praise God for the anointing upon MSM and am very grateful that He allowed me to become part of what He's doing through you. Thanks again. Jackie, KY
GSW 06 Review
Apr 6, 2006
The Spirit of Awakening is Among Us The Spirit of Awakening is truly among us. For the last several months God has been taking us from glory to glory. He has released a true authentic Spirit of Awakening. The presence of God is unlike anything we have ever seen before. People are ready. They are hungry for a fresh touch from heaven. God is responding with life changing encounters with His glory. People are becoming full of the Spirit and are moved by the heart of God to carry His glory with them. This year was our second annual Glory, Signs and Wonders Conference in New York. Guests included Dr. Mahesh Chavda, David Herzog and Matt Sorger. The following is a brief account of what God poured out in our midst, April 6-8, 2006. This was the weekend of the official 100th Anniversary of the Azusa St. revival of 1906. April 6, 1906, William Seymour, along with several individuals began to cry out for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. By April 9, 1906, the power of the Spirit came with many becoming baptized in the Holy Spirit. They spoke in other tongues and received the power to be witnesses for Christ. Soon the revival spread worldwide, ushering millions into the experience of Pentecost. ________________________________________ OVER 700 BELIEVERS GATHER TOGETHER During the Glory, Signs and Wonders Conference, over 700 believers gathered together in Long Island, NY from across the country from states including California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Massachusettes, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, and countries including Denmark and Germany. People came hungry for more of the Spirit and to receive a miracle touch from God. Many lives were radically changed. Weeks later, we are still hearing of people impacted by the moving of the Holy Spirit during those days. Everywhere we go we are seeing a similar outpouring of God. We are surely in the throws of another Great Awakening releasing a fresh power in the Church for the purpose of end-time harvest. Even during the conference, those who came in as unbelievers left convicted in their hearts and full of the Spirit of God. We witnessed several life-changing salvations. ________________________________________ THE GLORY OF GOD SWEEPS THROUGH The glory of God swept into our midst in a wonderful way releasing fresh waves of His power and a continual stream of His healing glory. Each day people received tremendous breakthroughs with many instant miracles. Not only were hearts revived and souls saved, but many were healed spirit, soul and body. ________________________________________ POWERFUL LIFE-CHANGING MESSAGES OF HEALING AND HOPE! Powerful messages of healing and hope were delivered by our guest ministries. You can now order a full conference CD and DVD SET including each session of the conference by calling 631-696-4950 or on-line at www.mattsorger.com TO ORDER ON-LINE CLICK HERE. Dr. Mahesh Chavda shared some humorous and encouraging words on household salvation and released a powerful teaching on the power of prayer and fasting for breakthrough and deliverance. This message will revolutionize your life and give you the power you need for breakthrough in every area of your life! David Herzog shared many uplifting miracle testimonies, building the faith of the people and also taught on the operation of creative miracles. He also taught on moving in both the realm of God's glory and releasing the creative supernatural power of God. Matt Sorger prophetically ministered on how to move from addition to multiplication and how to steward the multiplication God gives us. He shared on the power of speaking in tongues and the release of supernatural evangelism. As you listen get ready to breakthrough to a new level of multiplication and power. ________________________________________ THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY CAME UPON MATT During the Saturday morning session, the Spirit of prophecy came upon Matt as he shared a prophetic word from the heart of God concerning prodigal sons and daughters. Below is a transcription of the prophetic word. To view a video of this prophetic word please click here. "The Lord says you will see a great influx, even of prodigal sons and daughters, come back into my house. And God says when they come, you will receive them. God says when they come, receive them. There's coming a time of end-time evangelism upon the church, that will not only see the lost come into the Kingdom but will see an ushering in of the prodigal sons and daughters. Many, many, many of them, God says many of them have strayed from Me. But even this morning I'm preparing your heart to receive them back into My fold. God says I have one fold. Listen my Church. I have one fold. They will come and they'll be dirty, but they'll be broken. Because there is coming an outpouring of a move of my Spirit that will sweep their hearts and turn their hearts back to Me. And in a moment the Spirit of Revelation will come and their hearts will be open and they will see where they are. They will come running to Me. And when they come running to Me, you must not be like the elder son. You must rejoice when you see what I will do with them." ________________________________________ MANY INSTANT MIRACLES! There were many miraculous testimonies during the conference. Here are some testimony highlights. To view Video Highlights of the miracles God performed, please click here. I had a tumor in my right breast. I had a tumor in the left breast when I was 15 and had it removed. It came back in the right side June of '05. I felt warmness and a sense of peace. When I checked for the tumor, it was gone! Farrah, NY Age 19 I suffered from Fibromyalgia with restrictions in my wrists and finger pains. At the time I was not able to make a fist and couldn't write well. When Matt prayed for me my whole body bowed down, twisted left and right, up and down, heating my wrist and hands. Afterwards I was able to make a fist and make nail prints in my palms. Cori, NY Age 57 I was suffering from Fibromyalgia. I also had a shattered and broken heart from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. When Matt called for a woman with Fibromyalgia, my friends had to convince me to go up. Matt said the Lord was also doing a work of inner healing in me and there was a shattered and broken heart of abandonment and He was making me whole. That word was right on. I felt a loosening in my back and shoulders and then a heat within my heart. I know He has healed me. Hallelujah. Teresa, PA Age 38 I suffered from Fibromyalgia. When I got prayed for, I felt the presence of the Lord more than ever before all over my body. I came here to the conference very tired and achy all over. It is hard to stand on my feet all these days in the conference. I almost didn't come due to my tired legs, achy arms, and achy body. After prayer the pain just went right out of my body! I have no more pain in my body! Linda, NY Age 46 I suffered from ear infections. I felt the power of God when Matt prayed and my ear popped open and the pain in my bone was completely gone! Margo, NY I had tremendous pain in my left ear, teeth and in all of my left jaw. Tonight, I came here in pain but was determined to get prayed for. When Brother Matt said that someone was suffering with pain in the left ear, I went up for prayer. When Matt was praying for me tonight, I felt healing come to my left ear! Eugene, NY Age 43 When Matt called out back pain I went up and was prayed for. I did back bends and the pain was gone. I was also healed of a mitro-valve prolapse in my heart when Matt called that condition out also. Lillian, NY Age 75 My shoulder was hurt in a fall. I have had arthroscopic surgery and physical therapy. Matt had a word for injuries from an accident and for the right shoulder. Both applied to me. My shoulder ached. When I tested it, I found full strength and movement back in my arm! John, NY Age 52 My left shoulder was dislocated. I felt heat in my whole body and as a result the pain is gone! Vasile, OH Age 44
Reaching a friend
Apr 6, 2006
Dear Matt, On April 7, 2006 a friend of mine could not attend the evening service because her parents wouldn’t let her. So, while in worship I was praying for her and her family and that she would be visited by the Lord. Well, at about 8:00p.m., she fell asleep on her couch. She told me that as she fell asleep a great peace came over her. When she woke up the peace was still there and her body was warm and tingling all over. She suddenly felt the presence of the Holy Spirit all over her and knew that someone was praying for her at the conference! God honored my prayer and visited my friend. God is so great! Wayne, NY
You are God’s chosen ones
Apr 6, 2006
Dear sister or brother in Christ, I attended the Northeast Conference for Signs, Wonders and Miracles from April 6-8th. Though I went in obedience to the Lord, (He told me that he wanted to "download" His glory in me), I went testing the Spirit all the way. After attending the luncheon and hearing Matt's testimony, seeing the integrity of his family and staff, and getting confirmation from the Lord that this is ALL ABOUT JESUS...I want to tell you, my heart is so for your ministry!!! It is a PLEASURE and a JOY to see GOD use YOU ALL so POWERFULLY!!!!! Praise God for you. The Lord gave me a gold tooth on the first night. Oh, what a wonderful Father he is to have blessed me with this sign! I saw so many people encouraged and lifted up in the faith as a result of this miracle. One woman (Carmen) who sat next to me at the luncheon was burdened with sadness that her husband Robert has diabetes and lives in a nursing home. After seeing God's gold tooth, she said, "oh this is answered prayer! Now, I can go home with new hope and faith about my husband" ! And we were able to pray for him right then and there. I saw my friend, Teri, healed from deep, deep wounds of the past as a result of sexual abuse, and mental and emotional abuse. And I saw my other dear friend, Barbara, receive the gift of healing that she has desired for fifteen years!!! Halleluiah!!! And may all the glory be for the Lord Jesus Christ, from whom all blessings flow. What a mighty God we serve, God bless all of you, Kelly, PA

Joel’s Army East Coast
Jun 24, 2005
From the night of June 17, 2005 “Father, release the forerunners tonight.” I started wavering under the power of God (I don’t do a lot of wavering) after answering a call for the forerunners, the trailblazers, the machete-wielding wild childs that were ready to blaze the path to revival among their generation if it was the last thing they did. I felt like I was going to eat the carpet any minute. The power of God was surging through my body it felt like pure 440V shooting power. It felt like my legs were going to topple and explode at the same time. “Here, go to her” I heard him say over the microphone. Wonder if that’s me… yeah, right. I had only received a few "words from God" and was always overly-skeptic about them just because of who they were coming from. God was talking but I still had problems letting go and listening. I told Him two weeks ago that I would not eat until He touched me and I was serious. I was desperate. The call on my life was so strong but to what I had no idea. I was in India in January and saw the great need for help and the even greater need for a loving God. But I wasn’t released to go back yet. I felt like I should be stamping my feet and yelling, “It’s not fair. I want to help!” I originally fought with God on going there; I was convinced He was off His holy rocker for calling me to India. Then, once I was over there I had to fight myself to get on the plane to leave. One look into a third-world street child’s eyes will wreck your life forever. “God, I know you’re doing something right now. Are you taking me back to India?” Just wait I heard in that “inner-audible voice” thing that was almost like one of my own thoughts but stronger and I could tell I wasn’t just thinking it. “Her, right there.” I had been hearing those directions and incredible stuff all night from Matt to other people. I’d been standing there, unable to move for 45 minutes by that point. All of the sudden, I began to tremble. God, is he ever going to come to me? I felt something: the power- the pure, unaltered, unfiltered, very Presence of God. It felt like there was an angel standing in front of me, holding my limp body upright for just a little longer. “Fisher of Men.” My head snapped up. Is that to me? “Fisher of Men” again. I looked up and straight into pure fire. Matt’s eyes literally blazed with searing heat like they were looking straight into my soul and he was standing at least ten feet away. I felt like he just read my life-story in two seconds. I crumpled, almost ready to cry with no idea as to why. I've never done much crying. It’s been years since I’ve cried. Am I going to CRY??? “Stand up,” I heard him say. Bet me if I can stand up, I thought. “Get her up” he said to the catchers. I was dragged to my feet (which is not an easy task for anyone because I am not petite by any means). “You have an end-times evangelism anointing on you,” he said, emphasizing every syllable of every word. I know he said more and I can’t remember but my strength was gone again. I curled over, my hands feel like they’re going to catch on fire; I couldn’t look him in the eye anymore, just at his feet. “And there’s healing in your hands.” At the exact second he said those words, BOOM! My hands exploded with heat, pressure, and power and what felt like liquid heat starts dripping from them. “You’re going to have a healing ministry and evangelize with the signs and wonders that God does through you.” (paraphrased) I went down. I fell on my knees and start weeping. All the strength was sucked out of me and I was on my face. On my face, nose in the carpet, in the front of the sanctuary weeping, wailing, crying my eyes out in front of my friends who had never seen me shed a tear. There goes any shred of pride left in me… There were moments I felt like I couldn’t breathe. My hands were on fire, I couldn’t even get them near my face to wipe the tears and mascara running from my face into my hair and soaking through to the carpet (leaving a nice pink stain on my church’s floor from my bright red hair). Power was surging through my body and I felt like I was paralyzed. My chest was racked with huge sobs. I never cried like this in my life. I didn’t even know it was possible to feel this desperate, this sad, this overwhelmed with grief. “Why do I feel like this God? Shouldn’t I be happy that You’re giving me the opportunity to do evangelism and healing? Why on earth am I crying so hard?” My mind zipped back to when Matt said about the children in the Bronx that were overcome with weeping and crying for two hours. “It’s the spirit of revival being birthed in the most unlikely of children.” It’s the spirit of revival being birthed in you, the most unlikely, in the natural, of your peers to have a ministry. Don’t forget, I use the underdogs. “But why do I feel so sad and heartbroken? I can’t handle this much longer.” The sadness you feel now is nothing compared to what I feel when I lose one of My children. I remembered how earlier in the night, Matt said “Now some of you, God’s going to start breaking your heart for the lost.” That started a whole new round of overwhelming heart-wrenching sobs. “So what do we do about it, God?” All of the sudden, I was in complete darkness and I was cold. (To anyone who doesn’t know me, I’m NEVER cold, ever. It’s rare for me to run the heat in Pennsylvania winters.) I was freezing and it was dark. A red glow was starting to light up and I was looking down into a huge cavern. The floor was moving and I heard a terrifying noise like a hundred freight trains screeching to a stop in the same place. My eyes focused and I saw that the moving floor was covered with thousands and thousands and thousands of naked bodies, broken, bleeding, missing limbs and hair. They were climbing over each other but they couldn’t see where they were going. There was red, icy flames coming from all over the place ripping pieces of flesh off of the bodies. They couldn’t dart them; they were blind. I was freezing cold by this point and all of the sudden I lost my vision and felt something rip into my arm and across my back. “God, what’s going on? Is this hell? Get me out of here!” But I heard nothing except the wailing of the people around me. Then, as soon as I was there, I was back on the floor of the sanctuary. My hands were on fire again, burning up like I had them in a vat of frying grease. (If you ever spilled hot grease on your skin, you know the burning stays on your skin for minutes after it’s washed off.) I was still crying out to God but now for a new reason. “God get rid of the pride that makes me think that I can’t talk to people about you. Break it off.” I just did. I was burning up again, even my feet were hot. I’m making you a fire. Forget ‘this little light of mine’ you’ll be a fire in the darkness. This wailing and weeping went on for at least an hour and a half I was told. I don’t know, it felt like 15 minutes to me. I was so overcome with emotion (something that is incredibly rare for me, the token stoic of our little group of friends). I was just screaming inside my spirit for God to use me but I never knew what He wanted me to do. I felt like He was silent and wanted me to wait on Him. I did, and I feel like I really received some sort of a direction. When Matt said there was healing in my hands, it was the third out of four times someone said that to me within the last three months (the fourth was the next day). None knew each other or knew about the healings that I had been seeing. I don’t take subtle hints well so God was just having to drill it into my brain. I was unable to move the whole time I was on the floor. My friend came over to me and said that our janitor had to lock up the church and we had to go. I just wanted to stay there, in His Presence, listening to Him and soaking Him in. (I think that if they hadn’t moved me, I still would’ve been there the next morning, weeping yet.) She brought me my cell phone to me so I could call the only person I knew would be up at 1:45am to come and get me. Thank God, he had just gotten home. He drove me home, dragged me up the sidewalk to my apartment, up the stairs, and had to drop me on the couch. I could barely move my arms at this point and was still crying. I could move around 4am enough to drag myself to my room. I had dreams that night, things were happening that I never imagined before. The clubs that I used to party in only a year ago were being shut down and made into homeless shelters, the bars into soup kitchens. Kids were playing on the streets at night in the Harrisburg ghettos with no fear of gun showers. It was incredible. I saw Indian and African orphan children dancing around in a circle and singing praise songs. He kept confirming to me that the experience I had was not to be taken lightly and that I really needed to start buckling down and listening to Him. It was beautiful though. So that's my story.

Joel’s Army East Coast
Jun 24, 2005
I was in attendance at the Joel's Army Conference with my daughter in Harrisburg. There was so much that God did there I don't know where to begin. I have struggled with self esteem issues and insecurities for as long as I can remember. During the conference there were 2 different times you laid hands of me as you moved through the crowd. After the first time I began doing this odd pounding" motion with my right hand. It became more and more to the place it would almost knock me over with the power of the movement. Well the second time you ministered to me God did a huge freeing work in me. I can't explain it but it was almost explosive! My life has been transformed and I am having dreams and have seen angels twice since the end of the conference. I just wanted to share how God used you to bring about a wonderful impartation into my life. Thank you and Be Blessed!" Starr J. "I just wanted to thank Matt for being obedient to the Lord in the ministry God is using him in. On Thursday morning at the Joel's Army Conference at Christ Community in Mechanicsburg, PA, God used Matt to bring even more confirmation and breakthrough into my life. My husband and I have been believing for a child for 3 years now and God has been confirming it over and over again that we will have a son. I have been prayed over and am believing for a miracle that God would open my womb. This weekend when Matt was praying God touched me and I went down through the Holy Spirit. When I left the meeting that night I had a strong burning sensation for the next several days in the area of my womb. I knew it was the Lord healing me. The Lord is so awesome. Blessed be His name above all names. Thank you for trusting the Lord and being obedient to His voice. Susan S., PA
LATTER RAIN EXPLOSION IN WEST VIRGINIA
Apr 15, 2005
Voice of Praise Worship Center, Bluefield, WV April 15-17, 2005 With Revivalist Matt Sorger This year’s Latter Rain Explosion, hosted by Voice of Praise Worship Center, was a great success ushering in a fresh move of the Holy Spirit in Bluefield, WV. Believers from across WV and beyond gathered together for a weekend of worship, healing and the prophetic. We started Friday night with a spontaneous move of the Spirit. The people were called to deal with every hindrance in their lives so they would be free to receive all God had for them. As Matt stepped to the pulpit he began to move in a prophetic anointing praying over and releasing the word of the Lord to several individuals. From there a wave of healing came into the room as Matt released several words of knowledge for healing. The Lord delivered many from a nicotine and smoking addiction. There were several healed of chronic and severe arthritis, as well as other physical infirmities. One man testified to a healing in his right arm after a specific word of knowledge was called out for healing in a man’s right elbow. The power of God moved mightily upon a woman who began to jump, twist and bend as the pain from her arthritis left her body. There were also many new believers who received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for the first time. This move of the Spirit lasted several hours. Saturday night Matt ministered a prophetic teaching on the Lost Art of Tarrying. The power of God moved upon many as they responded to the call to begin waiting on the Lord for extended periods during their personal times of devotion. THE NURSERY WAS FULL OF ANGELS Sunday night there was an explosion in the Spirit as Matt ministered prophetically on the release of the double portion and the revival mantle. Before the service began Matt was standing out in the hallway getting ready to enter the sanctuary. As he was walking down the hallway he was overcome by the power of God. The Holy Spirit spoke to him “Matt, take notice of where you are standing.” He looked and noticed he was standing right out in front of the nursery. He became aware of a company of angels in the nursery. The Lord spoke to him and said “As a token of what I am doing My power will touch the young people tonight!” MATT WAS TAKEN TWENTY YEARS INTO AMERICA’S FUTURE During worship Matt was caught up in the Spirit and was brought twenty years into the future. He saw America twenty years from now. He also saw the young children that were present in this meeting as well as young children all around the country being infused with a seed of righteousness that will supernaturally keep them form the pollution of the world causing them to become national influencers in the future raising up a standard of righteousness in our nation. Matt saw that although the darkness was greater the seed of righteousness with in these young people will preserve America. God is not finished with America! Matt read Luke 3:4-6 about John the Baptist being a voice crying in the wilderness preparing the way of the Lord. He released a forerunner anointing over all the young people present. THE WINNOWING FAN IS PASSING ACROSS AMERICA He also prophesied that the Lord’s winnowing fan is in His hand. The winnowing fan was used to separate the wheat from the chaff. The winnowing fan is passing over America. All that has been built by pride, selfish ambition and wrong motives will not stand. But the wheat will be stored in His barn. Matt called forward all those thirty and younger. The power of God moved mightily upon these young people as they were released into a forerunner anointing to help prepare the way of the Lord. A PREACHING ANOINTING RELEASED OVER THE YOUNG ONES Matt prophesied over several of the young people releasing them into a “preaching anointing” and call. One young boy was so overcome by the Spirit all he could do was lay on the floor shaking as a preaching call and anointing was released over his life. Several other young people were covered with a prophetic mantle as the Spirit cam upon them. After ministering the word the people were lined up all throughout the sanctuary and in the foyer as Matt laid hands on each one releasing an impartation of the double portion power of God. It was a glorious time! REPORT BY SENIOR PASTOR ANDY BYRD The Latter Rain Explosion with Revivalist Matt Sorger was a very deep, rich, and powerful encounter with the Lord. For some time now, we have been crying out to the Lord for the heavier “rain” of His Presence and power in this time of the latter rain (Zechariah 10:1), and God has graciously been responding to our hungry cry. Many people were touched, healed, delivered, restored, baptized in the Holy Spirit, and set free. The worship was deep, passionate, and hungry. The Holy Spirit used Matt in powerful ways to give prophetic declarations and words of knowledge for the people. The messages Matt preached were “choice meat” of the Word - deeply penetrating and powerful. But the unique and wonderful result was that the people responded with sincere repentance and a holy longing for God, and the Lord responded by “raining” on us “times of refreshing” from His Presence (Acts 3:19). At times the Presence of the Lord was overwhelmingly tangible, like standing in a cool, refreshing rain on a hot, dry, summer day! During all the services, Matt followed the Lord’s leading and ministered to the people with the compassion and love of Jesus. Many people received, and were overcome by, the healing, delivering power of Jesus as Matt prayed for them. The life-changing impartation of the Lord to the people was an incredible thing to witness. The Holy Spirit really seemed to “explode” in several people! Throughout the conference, the Holy Spirit seemed to focus strongly on the youth and the children. The Holy Spirit planted powerful “seeds” of destiny, purpose, and fire into the young people by speaking spontaneous prophetic decrees through Matt. The youth and children joyfully received the decrees of the Lord and worshiped with an even deeper passion for Jesus! Many people from around the region and out of state attended the Latter Rain Explosion, and from the reports I’ve heard, I believe they left totally transformed and forever ruined for mediocrity and dead religion. Our church was already hungry and thirsty for God, but we moved to a whole new level of intimacy with Him and longing for Jesus. We desire to worship at His feet, but also bring more souls to do the same. We praise God and give Him all the glory for His awesome works among us during the Latter Rain Explosion! Thank you again, Matt for your genuine, servant-hearted ministry for the Lord. You really are making a big difference in the world and in the Body of Christ, and we appreciate you and your ministry so much. We look forward to the next time you are able to minister with us. SOME HEALING TESTIMONIES During the service Matt had a word of knowledge for healing in the knees, legs and ankles. The following are some healing testimonies that took place. One nine year old girl, Carlie S., testified to the Lord healing her knee. She was suffering from “knee stiffness and pain”. While we were praying she felt a heat in her knees and “all the pain went away!” Carlie S., WV, age 9 Another man also experienced a healing in his leg. David felt a pain in his left leg. He felt the power of God touch him from his waist down and “all the pain is now gone”. David L., WV, age 28 “When Brother Matt said there was healing being released for knees, lower legs and ankles I began to feel a tingling sensation in my knees and lower legs and I knew that God was touching me!” Scott C., VA, age 41
Northeast Prophetic Signs and Wonders Conference
Apr 7, 2005
A PROPHETIC REPORT FROM THE NORTHEAST PROPHETIC SIGNS AND WONDERS CONFERENCE With Matt Sorger and Todd Bentley APRIL 7-9, 2005 This year’s Northeast Prophetic Signs and Wonders Conference hosted by Matt Sorger Ministries was a strategic gathering releasing not only healing and miracles in the lives of many, but also a fresh prophetic revelation for the church in this hour. From the first night there was a complete open heaven. Many testified to an unusual awareness of God’s presence. Several key prophetic words and teachings were delivered by Matt Sorger and Todd Bentley. The power of the Lord was truly present to heal. Several also received deep deliverance from demonic bondage. One missionary from Bulgaria commented that she had not felt such a strong presence of the Lord since she had been up to the revival in Toronto, Canada. Many shared a similar sentiment, being captured by the spirit of revival that was poured out in the meetings. Another woman testified, “For years we have been prophesying that a ‘new thing’ is coming. Well it’s here! This is it! This is what we have been waiting for!” There was such a clean, fresh sense of God’s presence that brought a deep change in the lives of those present at the gathering. It marked an important prophetic shift for the northeast of America. We have received an invitation from the Lord to enter into a new season of visitation and power. There were believers gathered from all throughout the northeast and beyond including: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, Maryland, Florida, Texas, Missouri, Denmark and India! God truly opened up a “gateway to heaven”, releasing an extreme amount of supernatural activity. Thursday night Matt sensed the anointing for healing and released a corporate healing wave over the people. Several words of knowledge were called out including a grace for the healing of tumors. Many responded receiving healing in their bodies. Hands were waving all over the room as people testified to receiving a healing touch from God. There were several prophetic words and teachings shared by Matt and Todd throughout the weekend. We will highlight them for you in this article so that you too can receive the word of the Lord that came forth. REVIVAL OF THE FULL GOSPEL Thursday night Matt Sorger delivered a prophetic word and message on The Lost Art of Tarrying. He shared how God was speaking to him about returning to the place of visitation and waiting on the Lord. He prophesied that the prophetic timetable for Long Island, New York and the northeast has come full circle. God is again offering this region an invitation to enter into an outpouring of the Spirit that will bring with it not only an outpouring of miracles, but also a restoration of the Full Gospel. This word is also for the corporate Body of Christ in America and beyond. The revival that we are entering into is not limited to just a healing revival. But this revival will be marked with a restoration of the Full Gospel, including the preaching and teaching of the word of the Lord, healing the sick, casting out demons and raising the dead. We will see a restoration of the full work of Christ on the earth, birthed out of a lifestyle of intimacy and holiness with Him. This revival will be a combination of all the past revivals of history. It will include healing, miracles, deliverance, the prophetic, joy and faith, accompanied by an extreme awareness of His manifest presence. Not only will the church be restored, but she will be commissioned in great power for the end time harvest of the nations. THE KEY TO THE PEARL OF GREAT PRICE & THE POWER OF THE AGE TO COME Matt also prophesied that the Keys of the Kingdom are being released. These keys include revival, salvation, healing and deliverance, along with many others. God will give us what we need, when we need it. When there is a need for healing, God will give us the key for healing. When there is a need for deliverance, God will give us the key for deliverance. When there is a need for salvation, God will give us a key for salvation. They are the keys of the Full Gospel: what we need, when we need it. Matt shared the secret to receiving these keys of power. The power of the Kingdom is available to everyone, but with a price not everyone is willing to pay. Matt taught and prophesied about the restoration of the lost art of tarrying and waiting on God. He shared how his own ministry was birthed out of waiting on God. He ministered from Mt. 13 on the Pearl of Great Price, the hidden power of the Kingdom. He taught on how to enter into the power of the Age to Come and the price of sacrificing everything of self to possess it. God is calling the church back into a place of waiting on Him. This is not a passive waiting, but an active waiting. It is a tarrying in His presence until the endowment of power comes. A REVIVAL OF TARRYING RELEASING A BREAKER ANOINTING FOR THE MASSES With a revival of tarrying will come a breaker anointing that will usher the rest of the Body of Christ into a season of outpouring and power. Many will reap the fruit of the labors of the remnant. This principle is seen in the Book of Acts with the first initial outpouring of the Spirit on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 1:4-8, 14 - Acts 2), as well as in every subsequent outpouring of the Spirit in the Bible and in history. The remnant tarries before God in holy desperation until The Day of Outpouring comes ushering the church into a fresh season of visitation and power. We must take a hard look at our present Pentecostal movement and what we call “The Baptism of the Holy Spirit”. Sure, many of us can speak in tongues, but is our shadow dangerous? Are we healing the sick, casting out demons and raising the dead? Where is the true enduement of power that comes with the Baptism of the Spirit? God is calling the Church into a season of tarrying because a new day of outpouring is upon us. Without the tarrying corporately and individually, we cannot enter into the higher level of power God is offering us. Matt prophesied that we will begin to see spontaneous “tarrying meetings”. In these meetings it won’t be about who the speaker is or who is leading worship. These meetings will be marked by a holy desperation along with a waiting on God in worship. The formalities of a “structured church service and prayer meeting as we know it” will be put to the side as our only agenda will be to wait on the Lord and receive His power. It won’t be about binding this principality and that power or crying out to God for Him to come. The church has been crying out for years. Now it’s time to gather and wait for the Promise to come in true fullness. GOD IS CALLING US TO A RENEWED DEEPER BAPTISM OF THE SPIRIT THAT IS MARKED WITH TRUE POWER It’s not about receiving the Baptism of the Spirit as we know it now. Anyone by faith can enter into the Baptism of the Spirit at its present level of power simply by asking and receiving. No tarrying is needed for that. But what God is calling us to now is radically different. He’s calling us to a renewed deeper baptism that will be marked by true power and authority. As we wait and our spirits engage the Lord on a deeper level, we will receive this power of the Spirit. This will be true for corporate local churches as well as individuals. From this place many new ministries of power will be birthed. If we will catch God’s heart in this we will be positioned for the greatest enduement of power the church has ever seen. During the first night of the conference Matt saw a “portal” open in the Spirit. A portal is a place of visitation with God where there is an open heaven. It is a place of great spiritual encounter with God’s presence and voice. Then Friday morning Todd Bentley continued along this theme teaching on Gates, Doors and Portals and entering into this place of visitation with God. A NEW JESUS MOVEMENT ANOINTING IS BEING RELEASED ON A NEW BREED OF “DREAD CHAMPIONS” Friday afternoon must be documented as one of the most unusual services we have ever been a part of. As we worshipped, God’s presence overwhelmed the hundreds of people gathered. The worship leader, Kristie Levesque, was knocked to the floor while leading worship unable to stand under the weight of His glory. Matt was overcome with an anointing that was similar to that of Lonnie Frisbie back in the Jesus Movement. Lonnie was used by God in radical ways with the power of God. As this ‘fierce’ anointing moved upon Matt, he jumped up on the chairs and began to release a corporate wind and wave of the Spirit over the people. Simultaneously over half of the conference room fell under the power of God as a wave of extreme Glory went over them. A scroll of fire was released as God commanded us to ‘eat’ the word of the Lord. Matt’s eyes were then opened to the spirit realm. He wept as he shared how he could see the angels swirling over our heads and a chariot of fire leading the host of heaven. He began to prophecy that “there were more for us than against us!” He could see the angels being sent on assignment, even for family members not present in the meeting. During this service Matt also taught an incredible message on Establishing the Place of Visitation and Guarding the Place of Habitation. He gave some great practical keys to entering into visitations with the Lord and how to guard and keep the habitation of God in your life. (These complete messages can be ordered in the Northeast Prophetic Signs and Wonders set on line at www.mattsorger.com). Friday Todd was overcome by the Spirit and began to prophecy for this region. Below is a transcription of this strategic prophetic “now” word of the Lord. It’s lengthy, but I encourage you to read through it. NEW MINISTRIES BEING BIRTHED-THE OLD AND THE NEW TOGETHER “We thank you God that you’re giving birth, that you’re making room for new ministries to be birthed in this place. The new and the old together. The new and the old together. The new and the old together. You’re making room. You’re enlarging the place of this tent. And the tent peg is being established. Roots are being put down. Foundations are being laid. I thank you for what you’re doing in this place. I thank you for the reverb, for the shocks, the aftershocks, O God, that are hitting different areas in New York, right up into New Jersey, right up into other places here in the East. O God, in the name of Jesus, you’re raising up a true team of young men and women–ministries–eagles, eagles, eagles, eagles in this place. I see a nest and I see eagles, young eagles, new ministries in this place gathering in the midst of what God’s doing. God is making room, both for the old and for the new, both for the old and for the new. We release a breaker anointing in this place and we call forth ministries that haven’t been born. Ministries that haven’t been born can be born in this place; can be born in this meeting right now. Those of you who have been pregnant in Spirit are giving birth right now. Those of you that have prayed as intercessors for more than twenty years can give birth to something today. You are giving birth to something in this conference. Ministries that haven’t been born, some that won’t even be born for twenty years, some that won’t even be born for forty years–but you’ll hear of them–even ones in this room in twenty years will hear of ministries born in this place. And there are some already. God is bringing publicity, promotion to them in the Spirit. We release that, O God, and we call forth the eagles; not just in this place, not just on Long Island, but, God, throughout this area, in the East. Here in the East Coast, O God, there is an emerging army of young men and women. You’re giving a name to them O God, a Joel’s Army that you’re raising up in this place. Here in the East, O God, ministries that we don’t know that are being born. Yes, they are ministries already, but they’re about to become publicly known, in Jesus’ name. That’s the kind of anointing that’s in this meeting. That’s the kind of anointing that’s in this place. That’s the kind of anointing that’s in this conference. The things that are in your heart, dreams and visions that are in your heart, and you’ve prayed–leaders–different ones that are in this place–pastors–different ones that are in this place–and dreams–things that you’ve had in your heart, they’re about to be born. I’m saying, come forth, O visions; come forth, O dreams; come forth, O visions; come forth, O dreams. God, let the eagles be released, let the eagles rise. Let the eaglets be born. Let the eagles see. Let the eagles that have been tethered down, let them be released. Let them be released. Let the Son of Righteousness rise with healing in His wings. AN APOSTOLIC MINISTRY God, I prophesy an apostolic ministry in this place. I prophesy an apostolic ministry in this region. I say there’s room; yes, for the old, but let’s give room for the new. We break it open in the Spirit for the new thing, for the new thing, for the new thing. See, Matt and his ministry have been in God’s heart for years, but it’s just been born. Even in the last three years or so, it’s been born. And more and more it’s becoming public. It’s becoming known. But he’s the first of many in this area, the first of many in this region–sons and daughters that haven’t been born yet–generals. A WHOLE NEW BREED ABOUT TO BE PROMOTED You see, with the passing of the Pope, with the passing of other ministries in the last twelve months or so, and others that are going to pass in the next twelve months, makes room for a whole new breed to step up in promotion. I want you to get ready for that. So, that’s the anointing. And, maybe there are hidden gems, hidden treasures of wisdom and revelation in this meeting right now. You’ve been a hidden piece. A hidden piece in prayer, a hidden piece in business, a hidden piece in healing–but God’s going to throw you out and catch you to the nations. Cause there’s a wind blowing and it’s going to pick up the wings. Yeah, some of you are going to fly again. It’s been five years, it’s been ten years, you’re going to fly again. God’s restoring you. He’s healing wounded warriors. Some of you need that word–that you’re saying, “I want to fly again, I need healing, I laid it all down, I was taken out.” Whatever it was that you went through in your circumstances, God wants to raise you up again. He wants to give vision to you again. He wants to visit you again.” THE SWORD OF THE LORD For ten minutes I’ve been in visions of God. It was so profound that at one point I saw an angelic being come into the room. I’ll tell you about that in a minute. And then there was placed in my hands, right across my arms, right across my lap there was placed a sword. And this sword is wrapped in a purple garment. It’s a gift from the King of Royalty. It is the sword of the Lord and it was placed in my hand. It’s about a foot wide and it was about five feet in length. It is so heavy that my arms are literally straining to hold this. It’s as if I have fifty pounds in my arms. I feel weight. In fact, every muscle in my arms is tense as if I was lifting weights. My bicep, everything is tense. And in my arm is this sword; I’m supposed to give it to somebody tonight… God is wanting to place this on people tonight. There may be several people that receive the sword of the Lord; and yes, its power for preaching. It’s a revelatory preaching gift in which God’s word will be like fire in your mouth. In which when you preach, there’ll be power in the word to destroy strongholds, and (bring) healing. It’s an anointing like Charles Finney possessed; in that when he preached it brought a Spirit of Revival in the preaching; in which John Edwards, Evan Roberts possessed. And there was such a mantle of God’s Spirit that when they preached there was literal revival. It was as if their tongues kindled fire. It was as if their words caused men to fall down dead in their seats, with the convicting power of the Holy Spirit.
Do you remember as you’ve read about what happened in revivals of old, as you look at history and how God spoke? And you read stories of how whole cities, nations and regions were shaken under the power that was in the spoken word. And there was such conviction that men and women dropped as if they were dead in their seats. SEEDS OF DESTINY AND REVIVAL LIKE THAT OF CHARLES FINNEY And there was one revival in which I’m prophesying tonight because it became very clear to me in the Spirit that what God did in upstate New York with Charles Finney, there was a revival that those same seeds of destiny reside on Long Island. And those same seeds of destiny reside within New York City–the very seeds in which God scattered in the days of Charles Finney’s revival in upstate New York. And that very power that resided upon that man, that great revivalist who even preached in these areas, there is an anointing that again God is breathing upon; I saw it again on Long Island. THE SWORD OF THE LORD IS COMING Lord, just release that sword tonight. I feel it releasing now. The sword of the Lord is coming into this place. I want you to ask for it. On one side is your conviction and judgment; on one side, the sword could cut you down. On the other side is a sword that brings conviction to men and women as the truth of the gospel is proclaimed. It’s a two-edged sword. It’s a sharp sword. It could destroy you. It could judge you. It could slay you, or it can (cut) against wickedness, against sickness, against disease. It could bring the truth of the gospel in power and in conviction to destroy strongholds. It’s a two-edged sword. Be careful how you handle and receive the sword. Let it judge you: “holiness in my life, Lord. Righteousness in my life, Lord. Truth in my life, Lord. Integrity in my life, Lord.” And let me use it because I want to preach the word. And I want to do it in power and conviction. I want to do it uncompromising. I want to do it in truth. The word in your mouth is only as powerful as the word that’s in your heart. The word in your mouth is only as powerful as the word that you live by. God is placing this sword upon men and women. It’s a preacher’s anointing. It’s a revival mantle. It’s got power and conviction and authority in it. Some of you are going to go forth to kings and presidents and leaders with that word. It’s not just a preaching word. It’s a prophetic word as God anoints and raises up voices. Who’s going to be a voice? There may be one or two, but God’s anointing someone in this room with real fire, with real fire, with real prophetic fire. Not just to prophesy about people’s future and destiny, but to proclaim a word like John the Baptist, and stand before kings and leaders and presidents and say, “this is the word of the Lord.” A Spirit of Elijah! THE SWORD OF JUDGEMENT I’m seeing in the Spirit that even right to the doors of the church God’s sword will come and He will cut away and reveal what they really are. There is a part of judgment coming in this area. And it’s God’s sword cutting away everything that is false. God will expose men in sin. He will cut away what they’ve been hiding…they say, “they don’t see me, nobody knows.” God’s about to cut away that curtain and everyone’s going to see you as you really are. …He’ll cut away what we’re hiding behind. It’s time for holiness. If we would say, “God judge me,” we wouldn’t have to face judgment. God, raise up an army of men and women that are pure in heart and can wield this sword. They can, and can preach the word in true power because they live by the sword. They live by the word. They don’t just have a message, they are the message. A GOLDEN SPRING RAIN AND THE SEEDS OF REVIVAL And in the Spirit I saw golden rain. And then I saw the hand of the Lord scatter. And I thought of the parable of the sower. The sower went out to sow…the preacher. The seed is the message. And I saw the Lord scattering seeds all over Long Island, just reaching in the basket and throwing out seed, from one end of Long Island to the other end. And I said, “God, you’re scattering seeds.” He said, “because the ground in ready.” Before you can sow the seed, you need to break up the fallow ground. The ground needs to be prepared before the seed could come. I said, “Lord, what is it?” And, He said, “It’s the seed of revival.” And immediately I saw Charles Finney and a great revival in upstate New York. And the Lord said, “Todd, there’ll be a revival in this place, in this region, in which thousands will come. And the meetings won’t be over after four days, they’ll say, ‘let’s keep going. We can’t stop. Let’s not shut it down. Let’s keep the doors open.’” AN EXTENDED MOVE OF REVIVAL IS COMING And they’ll be coming. They’ll be coming by the thousands, even from around the world because God will be doing something in this place. And it’ll go on for an extended period of time. And, even that won’t be the revival. Even that won’t be the fullness. But God was scattering the seeds, the seeds of revival. And then the golden rain came and gave life. See, the spring rain–it’s new life, it’s new growth. It’s the rain that comes, not for sowing, but for harvest. The latter rain is the planting seed. The spring rain is the harvest seed. THE BREAKER ANOINTING And I saw this ocean and there was a glacier in this ocean, a large glacier. I thought I was in Alaska. And then I saw this boat with a sharp point in its bow–this massive boat. I didn’t know what it was at first because I just saw the bow. But it came and it broke open the ice. It made a way where there was no way. The boat just pushed through and it broke open the ice. And then I noticed on the side of the boat was the word, BREAKER. I said it’s the breaker anointing. And then I noticed it wasn’t a boat, it was a battleship. And the guns were firing. And I could hear in my Spirit “fight the good fight.” There was this war in my Spirit. And the boat was coming into this region – it’s Long Island. The breaker anointing is coming in and it’s breaking open–and do you know what the ice is? It’s the hearts of men and women that have been cold. The hearts of men and women that haven’t really been warmed to the gospel–the receptivity, the climate. And there was a battle in it–fight, fight–and the guns were blazing. And the Lord spoke to me about Matt and his ministry. And He said, “Matt is receiving this breaker anointing in which things are beginning to break open that have never been opened. And hearts are beginning to be warmed.” You know there’s a change in Alaska in the climate and glaciers are now melting. See, there have been things that have been frozen over here. And do you know what hearts need? They need to be turned to the lamp of their first love because their hearts have been cold like ice…. I see in the Spirit realm that things are warming up and ice is beginning to melt from the hearts. The ice is beginning to melt from the minds of these people and God’s releasing a breaker anointing. And it’s coming into Long Island. And it’s getting things ready for what God’s about to do. And the seeds of revival are being scattered. And the golden rain of heaven is coming down. And God is giving life. THE OLD FOUNDATION IS BETTER-THE STONES SAY “FINNEY REVIVAL” In fact, I see God uncovering a foundation that (since) about twenty years (ago) there’s been a change in the church. And I see this foundation built on top of another foundation. The old foundation is better. God wants to break down the foundation that exists of what we call the church today on Long Island and get back to something that happened in the last twenty years in which God moved in some way–I have no idea of what the history is–but there was something and God is breaking it down to that foundation. He’s saying, “I like that one better.” And I know there’s another foundation in there in which the stones say, “Finney revival.” The kind of revival that I gave in the days of Finney. I’m releasing those building blocks. I’m releasing those building stones back not only into Long Island but back into New York. And God we say, “let those stones come–those true building stones of revival”. Rebuild the foundations with the same building stones of revival, just like as in the days of Charles Finney. THE RELEASE OF THE ANGEL OF FINANCE Two years ago, I was in Albany, Oregon, and I saw with my eyes open, an angelic being appear in my hotel room–just stood right there in the bathroom door. And it was bent over and I saw the back of the angel. And it looked to me like an eagle. I mean, I saw the feathers, the skin. And imbedded into this angel’s back and right into the wings of this angel–his body was covered–I thought it was a living creature, like the seraphim that cover themselves with their wings, the six wings. They say, “Holy” and they cover themselves. This angel covered himself. I thought for a moment that it was a seraphim or a cherubim, like Ezekiel or John saw. I thought, my God, the living creatures are visiting me in my hotel room. I’m seeing what John saw, I’m seeing what Ezekiel saw. And it wasn’t a living creature at all because it had the face of a human being, the chest of a human being, the arms of a human being. But these wings, these eagle wings, in which it would cover its body and the entire wings, including the back of this creature-man, were embedded with jewels–emeralds, diamonds, pearls, rubies, gold–it was a part of its skin. And tonight, I looked over into the corner for one moment and I saw that angel walk into the room–the same angel! I saw his face again tonight. He’s old, but he looks about 17. That’s how young his face is. And he has the body of a man and walks like a man; but at times will begin to move his wings and his entire body will be covered with these wings in the front. You won’t see his body; all you’ll see is wings. You won’t really even see wings; you’ll see treasures. And then when you see his back when he’s bent over–it’s just diamonds and rubies and pearls–right into the back of this angel. When I saw him walk into the room tonight, the Lord said, “This is the Angel of Finance.” Mark my words. When the Angel of Finance comes, unusual financial breakthroughs start taking place around you–in your business, money cometh–things begin to break: land sales, houses given, investments come through. Just at his presence, promotion–financially–takes place. Jobs change overnight. I said, “God, why is the angel here tonight?” He said, “Tell Matt that I’m bringing the angel into Matt’s ministry.” In fact, he’s called the Angel of Finance because he’s the one who administrates, stewards and handles money for your ministry. I believe there’s an anointing in the room tonight. If there’s an anointing for healing, glory, prophecy, why isn’t there an anointing for prosperity? The Bible says God gave them power to get wealth. The blessing of the Lord maketh one rich. I just want to say this as a prophetic word: things in your life–financial, church and ministry–are about to change and accelerate because the Angel of Finance is here. I’m telling you right now–God is my witness–when the angel came into the room my eyes changed. I almost started weeping. It was so real. I saw the angel as clear as you can see me walk into the room… I almost walked right over and touched it. That’s how real it was. I had to look back three, four times because it was so real. And he wasn’t doing anything, he was just there. … (God) said, “This is my Angel of Finance and I trust him with the resource in heaven and he distributes it as ministries have need.” In fact, this angel has authority in heaven to write off ten million dollars to those that God can trust. This angel has that kind of authority to steward and handle money. Lord, release it tonight on Long Island. Kingdom resource, kingdom wealth…release it in this room.” THE DOUBLE PORTION BLESSING IS COMING IN 2005 Saturday night Matt Sorger closed our time together with a prophetic word on the release of the Double Portion Mantle of Revival. Matt received a visitation of the Lord on New Year’s Eve. The Lord spoke to Matt that this year, 2005, we would see a release of the double portion blessing of God. With this revival mantle would come a restoration of double everything the enemy has stolen from God’s people. We will see a doubling of His presence, power, anointing, miracles, and level of effectiveness. Matt shared about his recent trip to Wales during the 100 year anniversary of the Welsh Revival and his prophetic experiences at Moriah Chapel, the birthplace of the revival, as well as his encounters with the revival mantle. He shared some powerful insights to who will be trusted with this mantle. The anointing in the meetings was truly life changing. You can not afford to miss out on the prophetic words and teachings that were released during this gathering and you don’t have to!

Miracles in Connecticut-Gateway Fellowship
Jan 23, 2005
From New Mexico we traveled to Connecticut to be with Pastor Brian Simmons at Gateway Fellowship. We had another powerful move of the Spirit there with many touched by God’s power. On Thursday night I ministered a word on the four levels of intimacy with Christ and ascending the mountain of God. Friday I ministered on picking up the revival mantle and shared some of my experiences in Wales this past year during the 100 year anniversary of the Welsh Revival. Many received a powerful impartation of the Holy Spirit. I also ministered in two morning sessions. I taught on the healing anointing in one session. Our last session together the Spirit moved in a powerful way with many healed as the healing anointing came into the room. Words of knowledge were called out for healing.
A WOMAN’S HAIR SINGED BY THE LIGHTNINGS OF GOD!
Jan 23, 2005
From there we traveled out to New Mexico to be with our friends Todd Bentley and Keith Miller to minister in the Glory Bound Miracle Crusade. It was truly an open heaven in each session we ministered in. The power of God moved in such a corporate way that many were overcome by the Spirit at the same time. Whole sections of people around the altar were being overcome by the Spirit’s power. During the conference I shared a powerful prophetic revelation the Lord gave me on the four levels of intimacy with Christ (This message, Ascending the Mountain of God, can also be ordered by calling 631-696-4950). God moved in ways I have never seen before. Below is a testimony of a woman who received a touch from the lightnings of God. She was shocked to find that part of her hair was physically singed off her head by God’s power! She said that if it didn’t happen to her she wouldn’t have believed it! “During the AM service on January 8, 2005 in Albuquerque, NM Matt began to release an impartation of anointing. I looked up and saw a blue-white light come from behind him. I knew it was the lightning of the Lord and it hit me. I felt an unbelievable charge of electricity shoot from my head through my body and down to my feet. The Lord spoke to me and said “What I have called you to do is not difficult. Heal the sick, cast out demons, open your mouth and I will fill it.” The power was almost unbearable. Later, I was brushing my teeth and noticed a discoloration in my hair. Thinking it was makeup, I ran my hand through my hair and little bits of singed hair fell into the sink. I looked closer and in awe realized that when the lightning hit me it burned my hair in the exact place I felt it hit me. Praise God. I have never experienced anything like this and I have had encounters with the Lord. Nothing could even come close to what I experienced today.” Leslie, El Paso, TX, 31
NEW MEXICO MIRACLE GLORY REPORT
Jan 23, 2005
We have begun the new year and have already witnessed and experienced some extraordinary moves of God. Part of what the Lord showed me for the new year was a release of a double portion blessing. I am contending for this in each of our meetings, conferences and crusades for 2005. There truly is new territory God has for us this year! CELEBRATING THE NEW YEAR WITH A DOUBLE PORTION BLESSING We began this year ministering in my home church in Riverhead, NY with Pastor Don Loper. Not only is he a wonderful man of God, but he also carries a true father’s heart. I greatly appreciate him. We celebrated bringing in the new year together. I released a word on the double portion revival mantle and on the characteristics that will mark this mantle. Not only will it be a mantle of power and conviction but also of deep humility and servant hood. The Lord spoke some deep things to me about true spiritual authority and how to use God’s authority in a biblical way to serve and not to lord over with manipulation, fear and control. The presence of God moved in a powerful way as a double portion blessing was released on the people. Several were healed of spiritual abuse they had suffered in the past. (This message was the January Tape of the Month for our Global Harvest Partners. You can order it today by calling 631-696-4950. It gives a very balanced view of spiritual authority and grants an understanding of why God gives His authority to us. It discerns the difference between healthy and unhealthy authority.)
Fire in my body
Dec 13, 2004
I just wanted to thank you all for coming! You really blessed us! There have been many testimonies of healing. My back has been great ever since the Friday evening service. I have to tell you, you prayed fire on me and all that night (Friday) I kept kicking off the covers all night because I was too warm and I know it was not a hot flash! It really made me laugh! Thanks again! Elaine Dunay, CT
Dec 13, 2004
Thank You for coming to Seaport Community Church!!!!!!!! You were all a blessing to us!!!!!!!!!! I was most excited to see the level of humility and submission that all of you operate in. You handled yourselves in a loving and controlled fashion. The power and anointing of God worked through you all as conduits to us. I especially enjoyed your teaching Matt. God did more in my heart with that than in all the prayers offered up. I am not saying that those weren't powerful also. But I saw a direct link between the Spirit and the Word. Which I am starting to see is more powerful than either used singly. Thank You so much. I especially enjoyed praying in unity with Mrs. Sorger. God showed me that he can use me powerfully in all stages of maturity if we are just obedient to Him to know how to use us. Rusty Miller, CT
God’s Power in Connecticut
Dec 13, 2004
BLOWOUT AND BREAKTHROUGH ANOINTING RELEASED Saturday morning the presence of God continued to manifest in a tangible way as I ministered a teaching on divine healing. We discussed the many ways in which God releases healing and answered many questions concerning God's will to heal, how He heals, when He heals, how we access His healing, what true faith is and how we receive this faith. The feedback was tremendous as the very word of God itself set people free with the truth. The Lord continued to heal spiritually, emotionally and physically that afternoon as well. Saturday night we had a blow out anointing service. Before I began preaching the word a corporate glory was released in the room as people all around the sanctuary became overcome by the Spirit. As the glory was released over the congregation I could see the light of the Lord resting on certain individuals. As we called them out the power of God "struck" them. Some wept, others were overcome by joy. Many fell to the floor under the weight of His glory. I ministered that night in the transference of the anointing and how to move from a momentary touch from God at the altar to a lifestyle of living in His presence and power. My team and I laid hands on everyone in the church releasing the tangible anointing of the Holy Spirit into their lives. By Sunday morning the atmosphere was electric with the presence of God. The heavens were opened and the congregation was filled with the life of God. After that weekend I felt like I was floating on clouds for days. God is doing something significant in the northeast. He is releasing a fresh fire and anointing in this region and I am looking forward to many more visits to the northeast of America.
MIRACLE GLORY IN NEW ENGLAND
Dec 13, 2004
What a powerful time we had in the New England state of Connecticut this past weekend, December 3-5, 2004. As I stood to the pulpit on Sunday morning still feeling the overflow of the two previous nights I was amazed at the hunger resident in the people. New England has a reputation for being "cold" and "frigid" in the Spirit. But I believe God is making it a "hot spot" in the Spirit. The people were so warm and receptive to the Holy Spirit. The presence of God was real and genuine. It was a very lively crowd as the joy and presence of God filled our hearts. We began Friday night at Seaport Community Church with Pastor Brad Whipple, the former Alumni Director for Zion Bible Institute, the Bible College I graduated from back in 1997. As I stood to the pulpit the Lord directed me to begin to call out several words of knowledge for healing He had spoken to me before the service began. We jumped right into the healing river. People began to come forward for prayer in response to the words of knowledge and the power of God began to move. Many received healing in their bodies. After this first healing wave there were testimonies of the Lord performing instant miracles. Then I ministered on the Secret to the Awakened Heart and learning to have fresh oil and fresh anointing on a daily basis.
REVIVAL REPORT: HEALING IN HIS WINGS SIGNS AND WONDERS CONFERENCE
Sep 10, 2004
What a powerful weekend we had during our 3rd regional Healing in His Wings Signs and Wonders Conference in Long Island, NY. There was a great sense of unity, expectation and spiritual hunger as over 21 churches gathered together from across the New York region and beyond to experience a fresh touch from the Holy Spirit. Many were filled, refreshed, healed, delivered and empowered to live in a place of overcoming victory in their walk with God. Each night God moved in a unique and powerful way as His Glory swept over His people. As I entered the sanctuary Saturday night a man came running up to me with tears in his eyes proclaiming how wonderful God's presence was in the church. The air was electrified with God's glory and everyone could feel Him there. It wasn't just another meeting. It was a night of holy encounter. As we lifted up our hearts in worship to God people could be seen weeping as their hearts were touched in a profound and unusual way by the Holy Spirit, some for the very first time. THE HEALING WORD We began Friday night by ministering on how to receive the supernatural faith of God that releases the miraculous and supernatural. People were set free as the truth of God's word penetrated their hearts. They realized that true mountain moving faith can't be manufactured by one's own effort but by simply seeking after the Author and Finisher of their faith and allowing Him to impart it to them. Then Saturday and Sunday we ministered on how to walk in a place of divine health and maintain the healing God gives us. We shared 12 keys to supernatural health and how to walk in it. Sunday night was impartation night as we laid hands on each one for an impartation of the anointing of the Holy Spirit. CORPORATE DELIVERANCE ANOINTING RELEASED There were many highlights marking this Signs and Wonders Gathering. Besides the many miracles the Lord performed, Saturday night a corporate mass deliverance anointing was released. As the power of God moved, many were set free and delivered from fear, depression and a spirit of heaviness. Several testified to actually feeling oppression, fear and heaviness lift off their bodies with a great sense of peace and lightness remaining. Several were overcome by a glorious joy as God set them free from years of oppression. One girl testified that she never felt the way she did that night. Something that had bound her for years was broken as the Spirit's power moved upon her. "I have suffered from anxiety and fear. I also had a heaviness on my chest. I've been on a low dose of paxil for it. Matt called out a word of knowledge for someone being set free from fear. I immediately began to spin uncontrollably and the heaviness left. All the heaviness is gone and I feel peace." Sally D., NY A fifteen year old girl testified "Matt called out fear and I felt something come out." She was gloriously set free from fear. "I didn't think anything was going to happen to me. Then Matt mentioned fear, something I've struggled with for years! I then prayed I would be delivered and I was! I was crying and never experienced anything like it!" Meaghan O., 15, NY Another young girl testified to struggling with depression, fear and worry for a long time. When I called it out "it just left her. It was completely gone!" She also testified to being healed of a thyroid disease. "Something lifted off of me and I am no longer afraid. I also felt a heat in my neck." Vikki L., 15, NY THE FIRE AND THE GLORY On Sunday night during our anointing service the glory of God swept into the room in a corporate way. There are those times when the entire room becomes filled with the manifest glory of God, which is what we pray and long for in our meetings. It wasn't church as usual. A true revival spirit was released among us. Many began to burn with the tangible fire of God. As God's glory broke in people were "blown back" by the power all around the room. A wave of "holy laughter" broke out as people were filled and refreshed by the glory of God. The atmosphere of heaven invaded the lives of those present. EIGHTEEN SALVATIONS! During the weekend the convicting power of the Spirit brought 18 people to commit their hearts to Christ for the first time. As they confessed their sins to God many were powerfully filled with the Spirit. One was one of my own family members! After giving her heart to Christ she was "slain in the Spirit" six times during the meeting and supernaturally healed in her body! OUTBREAK OF THE MIRACULOUS As we prayed for the sick and released words of knowledge for healing many were healed by God's power. "I suffered with ovarian cyst clusters. After a cyst burst I was diagnosed with having a cluster of cysts on my ovaries that should have been removed by surgery. When I really listened to the sermon the concept of God giving us faith hit me hard and all I wanted was to ask for His faith. It washed over me with such an intensity that all aspects of my physical, emotional and spiritual life had been touched by God Himself. God is great! I've always had pain my whole life. It was a part of who I was. I couldn't remember not having it. I've never experienced anything like this. The pain left when I was on the floor." Suzanne H., 29, NY A woman testified to a healing overhaul. Two years ago she broke both her knees, had surgery and was wired up. She testified to having no more pain in her right knee. "It feels loose and wonderful." She also testified to receiving healing in her heart for which she was hospitalized several times and was on medication. She was also healed in her left arm and shoulder. Also the pain in her neck that ran into her head and shoulders from a whiplash accident 14 years ago was healed. She had no more cracking. The terrible pain was gone! A young man testified to being healed of scoliosis in his back. He could move his back now with no more tension. His back is a lot more free. Tim R., NY Another woman testified to healing in her knee as well. "I knew the word of knowledge was for me and I took it! I felt heat and a click. Both my right hip and knee were healed." Cheryl R., NY Another wonderful miracle was for my brother's mother in law. Not only did she give her heart to Jesus but His power gloriously touched her. She suffered from chronic headaches for years. All the pain left. "I feel good inside!" Arlette, NY "I left my house and wanted a miracle tonight. It was an old injury. The pain grew worse and worse over the years. My shoulder was healed. All the pain is gone. The pain left when I fell on the floor. I had a broken arm with torn muscles and shoulder pain. In Germany the medics wanted to cut my arm off. I've suffered for many years. Matt asked those to raise the left shoulder and arm which was in pain. I did and the presence of the Lord knocked me to the ground and the shoulder was healed. " Robert E., 71, NY A woman testified to being healed of scoliosis. She felt a "warmth through her whole back." Another woman needed a knee replacement. It was grinding and in pain. She had injured her left knee. All the pain is gone and she could now jump on it! A man testified to being hit by a car five years ago. Jesus came into his heart tonight and all the pain left his body. He had pain all over. His neck, back and knee were instantly healed. "Jesus gave it to me." A woman testified to being healed of a tumor in her left breast and glaucoma. She was going blind in one eye. "I was shaking inside and Jesus healed me." "I felt pain in my back and the Lord healed me. My arm was also heavy and I couldn't raise it but the Spirit of God released it." Marge, NY "Yesterday I was in the emergency room. I thought I had kidney stones but the doctors couldn't find any. I have felt pain for 12 years and was on pain medication for 10 years. I felt the power go through me and the pain is all gone. The power was so strong I could hardly stand. All the pain is gone from my back all the way around the front." A woman suffered from a herniated cervical disk with nerve damage. She received an infilling of the Holy Spirit with rivers of living water. She was healed and all the pain is gone. Colleen B., 42, NY "The power of the Holy Spirit touched me and healed me. All the pain in my abdomen and back are gone." Terri B., 52, NY "I was healed in my hip, back and neck. Matt said to touch the areas we need healing and I did. The power of God took the pain away! Thank You Jesus!" Jane C., 58, NY We thank God for His healing presence and glory. STAY POSTED FOR OUR UPCOMING SIGNS AND WONDERS CONFERENCE IN APRIL, 2005 IN LONG ISLAND, NY. WE WILL BE JOINED BY TODD BENTLEY FROM CANADA, AN INTERNATIONAL PROPHETIC HEALING REVIVALIST. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO INVITE MATT IN TO YOUR CHURCH OR AREA FOR HEALING REVIVAL MEETINGS OR FOR A REGIONAL CONFERENCE OR CRUSADE YOU CAN CONTACT HIS OFFICE AT 631-696-4950 OR EMAIL US AT INFO@MATTSORGER.COM. MAY GOD'S HEALING PRESENCE BE YOURS TODAY.
The power of God brings deliverance and freedom!
Aug 17, 2004
I was totally blown away by the service at the East End Full Gospel Church in Riverhead yesterday. I had been struggling with a situation in my life that I felt I wasn't strong enough to overcome on my own. I had been praying and searching the Bible for answers on how to overcome and I kept coming to the Lord's Prayer, pray for deliverance. That is what I have been praying for. I came across your website last Thursday and in reading "A Word from Matt" on The overshadowing of God's Spirit, you quoted Psalm 91 "He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almightly." As I read this and your additional explaination of this place of refuge and protection, I felt the Spirit pulling me. I felt so strongly that I needed to get to Riverhead to hear what the Lord had for me. I live about 40 miles away, but I didn't dare let any excuse stop me. I couldn't find the Church at first, but I was determined that nothing would stop me. When I finally arrived at the Church, I felt very welcome and like I was in the right place. Throughout the service, I realized that to me everything that was being spoken out of The Word was for me, personally. I felt like the Lord was speaking directly to me in your teaching and I knew He had something in store for me. I responded to the altar call seeking forgiveness and deliverance. As you began to pray I was pleading for God to Help me, and gave everything up to Him as my only Hope. I had my eyes closed, and didn't know quite what to expect. Then I heard you say that the Spirit was decending on the woman in the blue shirt... That was me... I suddlenly felt heat upon the top of my head and felt the Spirit come into me. As you prayed, I can't say that I remember you even touching me, but my body began to shake, and my knees let go and I fell backward. I layed down and my body just kept shaking. It was as if I were fully aware of the sounds going on around me, but not able to respond. I was soaking in the Spirit. I really do not know how long I was out, I think about 45 minutes or so. It was really so awesome to be in the Presence of God like that. I have read about people having that type of experience, but never saw it for myself. You have no idea how Strong and Free I feel after yesterday. I know that The Spirit is with me, and that I need not fear Anything, God is with me. I Praise God and give Him all the Glory for delivering me from my situation. Thank you, Matt for being a willing vehicle for God to get through to people like me. God Bless you and your Ministry. You will be in my prayers. Thank you again.
You helped me find Jesus!
Aug 1, 2004
I just wanted to think you alot for what you have done. You have helped me to find myself and helped me to find JESUS. I'm not sure what else to say but I listened to that tape you picked out for me and after about 10 min. of it I felt like a shock go through my body and I thought wow I never thought anything like that would ever happen to me. I think it is really great what you are doing. Going all around the world and helping people to find him just like you have done for me. I hope one day I could do the same as you. So in conclusion, I just want to say think you for all that you have done. SINCERELY YOURS, Michelle R. Rock of Ages church St.Robert, Missouri

PROPHETIC WORSHIP AND HEALING CD COMING IN SEPTEMBER!
Jul 30, 2004
We are working on the final touches of a project we recently put together. God’s power and anointing are all over this CD! Several months ago I went into a recording studio in Canada and recorded the healing scriptures with spontaneous healing prayers and prophetic singing. Yes, I am singing on the CD! We also brought in other prophetic singers and had original music composed for the project. As people listen to the CD they are washed in the water of the Word and are soaked in the healing anointing. It is a powerful tool to release healing in those who are believing God for a miracle and also for those who desire to move in the healing anointing. The CD, Healing in His Wings – An Encounter with the Healing Presence of Christ, will be available this coming September. Already there are ministries from around the nation that will be distributing this CD to the Body of Christ. You can place your order today by calling 631-696-4950 or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. THANKYOU TO MY PARTNERS! Let me thank you, my partner, for your faithful prayers and giving to the work of this ministry. You have enabled me to bring the healing power of Jesus and the anointing of the Spirit and the Word around the world to people hungry and desperate for God. Your rewards will be great in Heaven! For your gift of $25.00 or more this month I will send you a word I ministered recently in Georgia on The 30 Characteristics of the Glory of God Part 2. It’s the second part to last month’s message. I know it will be a great blessing to you!
MIRACLE HEALING TESTIMONIES FROM MISSOURI
Jul 30, 2004
“I was suffering from an inflammation of the large intestines. I had a colonoscopy and a biopsy was taken. During the service at Rock of Ages Church in St. Robert, MO I felt the presence of God over me and it felt like God reached inside my stomach and lifted it out of my stomach slowly through my chest and out my head!” Jessica I., age 27, MO The following two testimonies were from two dear Baptist believers who came into the service. It was their first time in a Spirit filled meeting. God released divine healing in both of their bodies! “I have been suffering with a heart condition and lung condition and from a loss of weight. I had legions in my right lung and my heart was weak. I could feel the weight of the heaviness in my chest leave my body and I could breathe! All the pain in my heart and chest are gone. I give Him all the glory and praise His name.” Yvonne M., age 65, MO “God healed me of left shoulder pain and a sleeping condition.” Paul M., 62, MO “I just wanted to thank you a lot for what you have done. You have helped me to find myself and helped me to find JESUS. I listened to the tape you picked out for me and after about 10 min. of it I felt like a shock go through my body and I thought wow I never thought anything like that would ever happen to me. I think it is really great what you are doing, going all around the world and helping people to find Him just like you have done for me. I hope one day I could do the same as you. I just want to say thank you for all that you have done.” Michelle R., MO During the service there were many more healed as words of knowledge were called out for healing. Many were also strongly encouraged through individual prophetic words. It seems over the past months God has not only released His healing power through us but has also brought us deeper into a prophetic flow. It’s amazing how a word from God can impact someone’s life. I’m learning more and more how true Proverbs is when it says there is “life and death in the power of the tongue.” As we speak the heart of God over people there is a release of resurrection power, hope, faith and destiny. SUPERNATURAL MANIFESTATIONS OF GOD’S SPIRIT! During our meetings in MO there was a strong supernatural manifestation of God’s Spirit. During one of the night services the manifest wind of the Spirit was felt by many during the meeting. It was like a strong warm breeze blowing through the sanctuary. As the wind of the Spirit blew over the people some started weeping and others stood in amazement as they were overcome by God’s presence. Some felt electricity shoot through their body and others could feel the “tingling” of the Spirit in their hands. God was releasing an anointing for healing and revival. My own mother testified of being overcome by the wind of the Spirit. She felt it hit her head on from the top of her head to the soles of her feet. She wept as the power of God moved upon her. I believe in the days ahead we will see more and more of the supernatural manifestations of God in the earth as we learn to give the Holy Spirit a platform from which He can move.
GEORGIA PROPHETIC HEALING REVIVAL CONFERENCE
Jun 23, 2004
What a wonderful time we had during our Signs and Wonders Conference in Augusta, GA, June 23-27, 2004. The power of God moved in a mighty way with many being refreshed by the presence of the Holy Spirit and healed both physically and emotionally. For three nights I ministered a prophetic teaching on The 30 Characteristics of the Glory of God on the Last Day's Church. Many were lifted in their faith as we shared about the dimensions of the supernatural being released in the church during this hour. Below are some of the testimonies from those who received a powerful touch from God. I pray they will inspire your faith to receive all God has for YOU. One of the "cutest" miracles I have ever seen was with Hubert and Paris, a newly married couple of 93 and 90 years old! Hubert had fallen a year ago at the age of 92 and hit his head. He was unable to sleep at night and lived in constant pain. As I approached him I could see a demonic affliction of trauma on the back of his head. As we rebuked the affliction the pain instantly left him. He began to weep as he was pain free for the first time in over a year. I noticed he had two hearing aides in his ears. As we prayed for his ears he could feel something coming out of his ears. Both of his ears opened up and he could hear! As he left the church he handed me his cane saying "I guess I won't need this anymore!" It was cutest thing to see this man and woman in their 90's rejoice over God's healing touch. This is a great example of divine health even in our old age!
Jun 13, 2004
As words of knowledge were called out people began to experience the healing power of Jesus! FIVE YEARS OF ARTHRITIS PAIN HEALED! There was a woman who had arthritis pain for five years in her hands. She was instantly healed. "I had arthritis in my left thumb and stiffness in my hand. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and at one time was given anti-inflamatory medication. I felt warmth going through my thumb and I am healed!" Suzanne M., CT TUMORS HEALED! "I had four lumps on my chest area and rib cage. Matt asked us to lay hands on the part of the body that was sick and I felt warmth." Vincent testified to the lumps completely disappearing! Vincent E., CT There was another person totally healed from back pain due to a car accident. 17 YEARS OF BACK PAIN HEALED! There was a woman who was in three different car accidents. She suffered from back pain for 17 years and also Fibromialgia. She was totally healed! There was also a man battling cancer who testified that he could feel the symptoms and pain fading. After praying for the sick we laid hands on everyone who wanted to receive an impartation of the healing miracle anointing. It was a great night! We will be back in Gateway again in January for their month of healing! See you there!

AT LEAST 15 PEOPLE GIVE THEIR HEARTS TO THE LORD
Jun 13, 2004
During the altar call there were at least 15 people that responded to the call for salvation. Praise God for the harvest here in America as well! PASTOR BRIAN SIMMONS' REPORT "Matt, I want to thank you so much for visiting our church and releasing the anointing of God. We have reports of numerous healings, salvations, and the mighty touch of God on the lives of our people. Thank you for your sacrificial love and passion to make Jesus big here in the northeast. I look forward to having you return to Gateway in January! With love and appreciation, Brian Simmons" MANY MIRACLES AND HEALINGS Not only were many touched by the Holy Spirit during the service, but there were many testimonies of healing as well. HEART CONDITIONS HEALED-NO DISTANCE IN THE SPIRIT! During the Sunday morning meeting a word of knowledge was given about a heart condition and someone suffering with pain in their heart. As the word was called out a man was instantly healed of the pain he had been having in his heart and chest area. And not only was that man healed, but there was a brother in the service with his wife home suffering from a heart condition. He felt in his heart that the word was for her. A few hours later when the service was over he called home to see how his wife was doing. To his surprise at exactly the time the word was called out in church the pain completely left his wife in her home. She was healed!
GOD’S POWER POURED OUT ON A YOUNG BOY!
Jun 13, 2004
About two months ago we hosted a regional signs and wonders gathering in New York. On the last night of the conference my cousin Douglas was powerfully touched by the Holy Spirit. I want you to read the testimony written by this thirteen year old young man. "On Saturday, April 17, 2004 I went under the power of God at The Signs and Wonders Conference in New York. I was healed instantly from ringing in my ears as soon as I asked God to release His power of anointing. I was healed faster than a blink of an eye even though I've had this ringing in my ears for a little more than seven years! Another amazing thing that happened to me was being under the power of God. I've never been under the power for so long in my life. It was also the most power I've ever felt run through my body. When the service began I didn't know what to expect. First I began to praise and worship for about a half an hour and even then I felt the power of God! After that the whole church broke into prayer and Matt began to call out sicknesses and diseases that God told him to heal. People were dropping left and right falling under the power of God. While I was praying for my Aunt Ronnie I just felt a blast of electricity run through my body. I was out for about five minutes. I got up and started praying for my ears to heal because I had 35% hearing loss due to the ringing in my ears. Two minutes later I went to my mom and said "Mom, I have no more ringing in my ears." The ringing was instantly gone! I told Matt and the church what had happened and it just felt amazing that I could hear perfect again even after seven years of ringing. It just disappeared! Later on that night Matt was praying for everyone he had lined up in rows through the entire church. People at the touch of Matt's hands were going out under the power of God. When Matt got to me he laid his hands on me and was praying for about three seconds. Then, boom, I was out for an hour at least! People told me when I finally could stand that I looked like I was break dancing because of the power of God had just blasted me out of this world. A few minutes later I went to my mom and said in a whisper "You have two angels." She looked at me in amazement and then hugged me. It was like I could see angels and when I couldn't see them I could feel them. I'm very happy God used Matt to minister healing to me to this day. I will never forget that night ever. God wouldn't let me ever forget that night. I know it." WE GIVE JESUS ALL THE PRAISE AND GLORY FOR HIS HEALING TOUCH!
A FLAMING TORCH IS BEING PASSED TO THE NORTH EAST!
Jun 13, 2004
Coming right from our trip to India we made our way to Gateway Christian Fellowship in Connecticut with Pastor Brian Simmons. Gateway serves not only as a local church, but as an apostolic revival center in the north east of America. Pastor Brian and his team are making a significant impact on the north east and it is a great joy to be in kingdom relationship with them. A FLAMING TORCH IS BEING PASSED TO THE NORTH EAST! During the worship time, the Holy Spirit spoke to me and gave me a vision of a flaming torch being passed to the north east. He showed me a new breed of leaders being raised up like Samuel, where not one word will fall to the ground. They will speak and prophecy under divine authority and with the power of God. I also sensed a great move of the Spirit coming upon children. Many children will begin to hear the word of the Lord and prophecy and even experience realms of the supernatural including angelic encounters. The Lord had me call out my young 13 year old cousin and prophecy over him concerning the call on his life and as a token for what the Lord had for the children. As I released the word of the Lord over his life he was blown back by the power of the Spirit and lay on the floor shaking under the Spirit for an hour. During the altar ministry time Douglas, my 13 year old cousin, prayed with me over people transferring the power of the anointing. Many received a powerful touch even as Douglas laid hands on them. He even prayed over prayer cloths! AN EXPLOSION OF REVIVAL AND MIRACLES I was also awakened at 4:00 am that morning with a vision of a launch pad. I saw a rocket being launched. As it flew over the region it exploded in the air releasing a wave of revival and miracles. I also saw a strong spiritual covering released over the region. I saw Gateway as an eagles nest for the north east where many eagles (prophetic voices) will gather and declare the word of the Lord over the region. A VISITATION OF GOD'S SPIRIT SWEEPS INTO THE SANCTUARY As the service went on the power of the Spirit came into the sanctuary with many shaking and falling under the Spirit's power all around the room. The power of God came on my four younger cousins so strongly that even as young children, they shook under the power of God on the floor for over an hour. Many even received the joy of the Lord as God's presence filled them. It was an extraordinary visitation of God. And there's nothing like seeing your own family touched by the power of God! There was even a strong angelic activity in the room, causing entire rows of people to fall under the power of the Spirit.
India Revival Report One
Jun 1, 2004
REVIVAL IN INDIA!!! India is ripe for revival! With over a billion people living on this small continent, only 2% are currently Christian. Many are Hindu and Muslim. But the Lord broke through in a supernatural way during our first miracle crusade in southern India in Andhra Pradesh. We worked with Pastor Voola and New Covenant Ministries as the coordinators for the crusade and pastors conference. We are looking forward to future ministry in India! THANKS TO OUR PARTNERS! THANKS TO OUR PARTNERS AND ALL THOSE WHO GAVE TO MAKE THIS OUTREACH A SUCCESS, WE WERE ABLE TO BLESS PASTOR VOOLA AND HIS MINISTRY IN INDIA WITH A DIGITAL VIDEO CAMERA! THEY SEND THEIR THANKS AND BLESSING TO ALL OUR PARTNERS HERE IN AMERICA! ANTI-CONVERSION LAW REVOKED In recent months with the governmental elections in India, a new Christian leader was put in place in southern India. One of his first acts was to revoke the anti-conversion law that made converting people to another religion illegal. The way is now open for mass evangelization in India at least for the next five years! Now is the time for harvest in India. 10,000 IN ATTENDANCE WITH HUNDREDS OF HINDUS SAVED! Based on the estimation of local leaders, there were at least 10,000 in attendance for the crusade held in the province of Gudur in Andhra Pradesh. Over the course of four nights hundreds of Hindus and Moslems converted to Christianity and professed their faith in Jesus ONLY. They renounced their other gods and idols publicly and entered into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Close to 400 Hindus and Moslems publicly confessed their faith in Jesus with many being delivered from the demons they once worshipped as gods. HISTORICAL BROADCAST OF THE CRUSADE LIVE IN 100,000 HOMES! For the first time in history the miracle crusade and morning meetings were broadcast live into 100,000 homes throughout southern India. Many Hindus and Moslems watched the crusade from their homes hearing the gospel preached and seeing the miracles. Not only did they see the miracles but many responded to the gospel accepting Christ as their Savior and also received a mighty healing touch right in their homes! The pastor reported to us that the whole town was buzzing about the Jesus Festival. Many were watching the crusade from their TV's at home and shutting off the Hindu Festival Broadcast. They were watching the crusade instead! These are some of the phone calls that came in while the crusade was in progress: PARALYTIC RECEIVES MOVEMENT IN LEGS! A crippled lady called in on the phone line testifying that for the first time she could feel and move her legs. HINDU IS HEALED OVER THE TV AND GIVES HER HEART TO JESUS! A Hindu woman called in to say that she suffered from back pain for two years. Jesus healed her back while we were praying for healing and she called to thank Jesus! Another man called in to testify of his back also being healed while watching the crusade on TV. EYES PERFECTLY HEALED! Another woman called in to testify that her eyes and vision were completely restored as we were praying over the TV for healing. BACK INSTANTLY HEALED Another woman watching TV layed hands on her own back as we prayed the healing prayer and her back was instantly healed! CLASH WITH THE FORCES OF DARKNESS The first night of the crusade there was a Hindu demonstration during the altar call time. As we led the people to faith in Christ just outside the crusade grounds a group of Hindus were chanting a Hindu mantra over a loud speaker and parading a large Hindu idol around on a float. They circled the crusade grounds and then left. Their chant was powerless against the name of Jesus! The people still gave their hearts over to Jesus! Just 20 minutes from where we were the pastors told us that when people would try to hold a public Christian meeting people would bring rocks to stone them. But I was so aware of the protection of angels and the presence and power of God with us. SUPERNATURAL INTERVENTION IN THE WEATHER The weather for crusades is very important. If it rains the people won't come. The week of the crusade it was forecast for severe thunderstorms in our area. As we prayed over the weather the Lord intervened. It rained hard in every direction around us except for a 3 mile radius around the crusade grounds! MANY MIRACLES AND DELIVERANCES! These are some of the testimonies that came in throughout the crusade: There was a woman healed of back pain. There was an entire Muslim family that came to the Lord. A woman testified of her shoulder and arm being healed. She couldn't lift her arm or move it. But after she was healed she was able to lift it above her head. A man testified "Something changed in my back. All the pain left!" SEVERAL SEE BRIGHT LIGHTS Several women testified to seeing a bright light and then they were healed. One woman had back pain for over two months. After she saw the light of the Lord all the pain left her body. Another woman testified to being atheist. She didn't even believe in God. She also saw a bright light. Her body started shaking and she could feel a demon leave her body! After being delivered from a demonic spirit she confessed her faith in Christ. Another woman testified that a demon would physically appear to her each night and throw her on the floor. As a result her leg was injured. The Lord came and healed her leg and cast the demon out of her. She could feel the oppression lift off her chest. A woman testified that because of a severe fever she couldn't attend the first night of the crusade. She wasn't able to physically walk. She felt her body shaking and a demon leave her. The fever instantly left her and her strength came back! She could walk now. STAY TUNED FOR PART 2!!! IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO INVITE MATT IN TO YOUR CHURCH OR AREA FOR HEALING REVIVAL MEETINGS OR FOR A REGIONAL CONFERENCE OR CRUSADE YOU CAN CONTACT HIS OFFICE AT 631-696-4950 OR EMAIL US AT INFO@MATTSORGER.COM. MAY GOD'S HEALING PRESENCE BE YOURS TODAY.
Agape Renewal Conference in Nyack, NY Revival Report
May 28, 2004
It was another great weekend of ministry at the Agape Renewal Conference in Nyack, NY May 28-29, 2004 with myself and Jack Deere. I had two services with the young people. It was on the quiet side when we began but by the end of the first night the power of God had broken out among the young people as many responded to the moving of the Spirit. For many it was the first time being exposed to the power of God and the baptism of the Holy Spirit. But as God poured out His Spirit on these young people many began to weep, shake and burn with the fire of God. Many were filled with the Spirit for the first time. By the second night a Holy Ghost bomb had exploded and the young people were all “slain” by the power of the Spirit. Their bodies covered the floor as they wept and shook under the power of God. There were many healings both physical and emotional. God was healing, delivering, restoring and anointing these young people for the divine purpose He had for them. The Spirit was moving so mightily that the youth meetings went even longer than the adult meetings with young people not wanting to leave the presence of God. Parents were coming in amazed at what was happening to their teenagers. There were teenagers even being caught up into visions seeing their friends dying and going into a Christ less eternity. They were so moved that they began to huddle together and pray for one another as the conviction of God touched their hearts. It’s amazing what God can do when we give Him the space, time and platform. Below is a testimony of one of the young people who were present at the meetings. “I have been suffering with major neck and back pain and a swollen bruised hip bone. The doctors stated I wouldn’t be doing better for at least 8 months with a minimum of 3-4 months. I was sitting in my seat listening to these amazing healings being preached by Matt. I wanted to be healed emotionally and physically because I was in pain from my back. I was very traumatized by my childhood. I wanted the power to heal and be healed. Testimony after testimony I became more amazed by what is happening all over the world. Finally, Matt asked if anyone wanted to “let go of their rocks” and of course I did. I stood up and gave away all my pain, laughter, emotional hurt, insults and bad times to Jesus. Matt was announcing the gifts of the Holy Spirit. I always wanted the gift of tongues but I was never able to “control it.” I spoke in tongues a total of four times in my life. Nothing mattered to me except God and when Matt was describing people’s pains, and said mine, I began to cry. I was thinking, “How does he know?” I walked in the front of the church and Matt prayed for everyone. My back and neck snapped. As soon as Matt touched me I felt this crazy electric but warm feeling. Matt prayed for the gift of faith where I see signs and miracles. Matt blew on my hair and my knees gave way. I began to shiver like crazy and the room became so cold. Every time Matt released a wave of the Holy Spirit I would shake a lot and see white light slowly consuming my vision of a dark room. I saw something and it was a gate. I was standing outside of heaven! I looked for everyone else and gradually they started to run to the gate. Some made it but some sank and fell into a hole. One dear friend was hanging on and I grabbed his hand. He weighed so much like he had a burden of five tons! I let him go finally and he disappeared into the darkness. I opened my eyes and he was standing over me. I prayed for him and other friends. I then became cold, but then Matt touched my stomach again. My stomach was really hot. I put my cold hands on my stomach and it became warm. I cannot explain how wonderful I feel, especially my back. Thank You Matt, but more importantly, thank our heavenly Father God!” Daniel C, age 14, NJ
CALIFORNIA SIGNS AND WONDERS REVIVAL REPORT
May 23, 2004
HEALING REVIVAL AMONG THE YOUTH AND YOUNG AT HEART! What a powerful week we had in Lewelling, CA, May 23-26, 2004 during our Healing Revival Conference held at Lewelling Community Church with Pastor Phil Stewart. God is doing something extraordinary there as revival is sweeping through their Christian high school setting the hearts of the young people on fire. Back in February of this year I ministered at Fremont Assembly of God in Fremont, CA. Some of the folks from Lewelling were at that meeting. They were powerfully touched by the Holy Spirit and the prophetic word of the Lord. Not only were they touched but they carried an impartation of the fire of God back to their local church and saw a move of the Spirit fall upon their young people in the Christian high school. They shared with me that the young people became so hungry for God that they didn't want to go to recess. Rather they wanted to go to the chapel to pray and seek God. The Holy Spirit began to move in the class rooms as students and teachers alike became filled with the Holy Spirit.. As I returned to CA in May the fires were still burning. As I ministered in the chapel service of this Christian high school the young people flooded the altars crying out for God, some at the top of their lungs. They truly had a holy desperation for God. We began to pray for the sick. The Lord showed me a young person with a knee condition resulting from a sports injury. Four young people responded. As I prayed for them the healing power of Christ flowed into their bodies. But what was so wonderful about this was that I didn't pray for them by myself. I had other young people come up with me and pray for them. All four were instantly healed! Faith exploded in the room. After I left the chapel the young people continued to pray for one another with many being healed and touched by God's power. YOUTH HEALING REVIVAL I think back to a prophecy I received from Stacey Campbell during a prophetic conference in Kelowna, Canada last year. She prophesied that I would see the healing power of God released with many miracles during our youth meetings. Not only would the young people be healed but they would receive an impartation of faith to pray for the sick themselves and there would be a wave of healing revival released on mass. What we saw happen during our time in CA was the beginning of the fulfillment of that word. There is now being released a movement of signs and wonders among young people who will be endued with power from in high and released into the great commission to see the last days harvest brought in with the preaching of the word with signs and wonders following. High schools will be flooded with the presence of God as radical Christian young people step out in their God given authority to pray for the sick, cast out demons, cleanse the lepers and raise the dead! Now is the time for a global youth movement. And with that outpouring of the Spirit believers of every age group will be endued with a fresh power from heaven to do the works of Christ. This is not limited to young people. But what is so striking about a move of God is that young people who are normally preoccupied with the things of the world become preoccupied with Jesus and with all of their zeal and energy step out to reach their world for Christ. LIFE CHANGING TESTIMONY OF A TEACHER FROM THE HIGH SCHOOL Here is a testimony of one of the teachers from this Christian high school along with others from the church and school. "When Matt visited Freemont Assembly in February it changed my life. That weekend Matt spoke about the forerunner anointing for revival. He prophesied over me and released the gift of prophecy in my life. He said that I would be a "forerunner for revival" and that the light of God would be so bright within me that I would speak revival wherever I went. As he prophesied over me I was taken up in a vision of my childhood to the present. In the vision, my life played out before me. All the things I had gone through and the times I had been hurt or alone played out like the frame of a movie. In each frame the presence of God was there and His heart was breaking for me. I realized that I had been angry with God because I didn't understand why He would take me through all these things. What I didn't know is that it was the grace of God that had brought me out of them. It was the revelation of Gods love for me that changed me forever. It broke me free from the bondage that had kept me from pursuing the call of evangelism on my life. I got a revelation of God's love for me and I realize that I needed to love myself. I began to passionately seek after God in intimate prayer and the word. He began to peel back layer after layer of insecurity and replace it with an intense passion and joy to reach others who fall victim to their circumstance with feelings of no self worth and who are broken in spirit. I am able to let them know how much God loves them and how important they are and that they are uniquely made for the specific calling God has for each of them. God brought me joy through the revelation of His love for me. God is using my testimony to spark personal revival in the hearts of children, men and women. As I step out in faith and obedience God is pouring out His blessings all around me. I teach 6th grade and after hearing my testimony my students caught fire. Their child like faith not only blesses me, but has poured out on our elementary and high schools and onto the teachers. God is giving me opportunities to speak more and more and I am watching the Holy Spirit move through me to break others free from the bondage of their heart. As a result of God's love and healing power this has sparked a passion in them to pursue God in unity. We are seeing revival in our school, church, and homes and it is spreading to other churches in the Bay area. We are beginning to see miracles, supernatural healings and instant renewing of hearts and homes. My 6th graders speak prophetic words, lay hands on the sick, exhort and boldly speak to their unsaved family members. Everyday someone is reporting to me another miracle. Kids give up recess, lunch, and even meet after school to pray for revival in our nation, God is amazing. His love is unconditional and His blessings are extravagant. I thank Matt for humbling himself, stepping out in faith and being obedient to the call God has for him. His ministry awakened an uncontrollable passion within me and I will never stop talking about the goodness of God to as many people God permits me in this lifetime. I can't even put a fair estimate on what that one meeting has done for countless others. Thank You Matt for setting an example, impacting the world and fulfilling your part of the great commission!" Lareasa B, CA MORE MIRACLE TESTIMONIES!!! "Matt, here are a few more testimonies from my 6th graders. They came in after you left. Thanks for blessing them in our chapel. They are still talking about it and they keep trying to heal everyone who has an injury. It's the sweetest thing to watch. Kids with a passion are contagious. God Bless you and your family." Lareasa B, CA "Matt was preaching and he said, "You have to have faith in God to heal people and touch people." That was cool. The next day in class we (the class) prayed for Steven's arm and Alegra's leg and they were healed!" Anthony D, age 11, CA "I had suffered with upper back pain. When I was in service I started crying out to God. The devil tried to break my focus by making my back hurt. I started crying out to God even louder and I was healed instantly." Steven S, age 11, CA "I had a stomach ache for the longest time. I had problems in my life and have been attacked spiritually. First, Matt brought me up to pray for my stomach and I was shaking uncontrollably. Then suddenly my stomach was healed. Then he just started speaking and it spoke directly to me." Joanna P, age 12, CA "I had suffered with allergies and asthma. I used an inhaler for treatment. Matt put his hand on my head and I felt tingles and electric shocks go through my body and I started trembling with amazement." Midori C, age 12, CA PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL HEALINGS "I have had suicidal thoughts. When Matt prayed for me I was healed emotionally and spiritually." Jerome D, age 12, CA "My daughter has had carpal tunnel for at least 5 years. In the summer of 2003, when Matt came to San Leandro, CA, Candace was prayed for and Matt specifically prayed for her hands. When she returned to school at the University of Alabama where she was a swimmer, the new coach had her completely checked out because she had other ailments. The doctors told her that there was no trace of carpal tunnel. Since then she has transferred to the University of Florida where she is swimming for the Gators. She will be swimming in the Olympic Trials in Long Beach. God continues to bless her. Thank you Matt for being a blessing to her." Candace W, age 20, CA "My back has been healed." Shoca M, age 25, CA "I had suffered from back pain. I went to pray for someone else and then I played the piano. For the first time I had no back pain." Tim H, age 16, CA "I had seen a doctor the day Matt prayed for me. I was sent for blood tests because the doctor was concerned about the goiter in my throat becoming cancerous or hypoactive. Matt called for a woman in her 40's with a goiter condition. As he prayed for me, I actually felt it in my throat, which has never happened before. I feel God has healed me and I believe the goiter is shrinking. I am anxious for the tests results, which I believe will be negative. As the goiter shrinks there will be no more fear of cancer. Thank God!" Lisa W, age 42, CA "I had suffered from alcoholism. You pointed me out and broke the generational curse from my mother along with the turmoil that was in my marriage. I thank God for making me whole." Adelia D, age 25, CA
Signs, Wonders and Miracles Gathering Revival Report
Apr 16, 2004
What a power explosion we had this year at our annual Signs and Wonders Gathering in Long Island, NY, April 15-17, 2004. Worship was led by Stephen Jenks of Eagles’ Wings. The glory of God touched people’s lives as many were filled, healed, restored and empowered for service in the ministry of signs and wonders. Each night built on the night before and by the time Saturday night came we had an explosive anointing service with many receiving an impartation of the healing anointing. It was a special night for me as it was the first time I had 11 members of my extended family in one of our healing meetings. They ALL received a powerful touch from the Lord! I ministered on divine healing, signs and wonders and the anointing of the Holy Spirit. I am committed to seeing the Body of Christ move to higher levels of the supernatural with the activation of signs and wonders in our lives and ministries. Now is the time for a corporate healing revival to be ignited in the church across the world! Jesus wants to display His power, but He needs those who will co-labor with Him to see the Kingdom of heaven manifested in the earth. May the following testimonies encourage your faith and inspire you to pursue the call of God for your life and a deeper place in His presence and anointing! “I have suffered with Chronic Enchondroma for 18 years. I’ve been to Memorial Sloan Kettering and have had three surgeries. During the service I felt the warmth of a wave go through me and I felt the power of peace. After that I felt no more left hip pain!” Fran C, age 51, NY “I have suffered with pain in my chest, back, lower back and right shoulder. I had disk herniations in my lower back. I also suffered from muscle spasms and acid reflux disease. I was in two car accidents and suffered from other accidents at home and at work. I have seen doctors, chiropractors and surgeons and been in physical therapy. During the service I experienced burning, healing and peace. All night, as I was worshiping the Lord, I was seeing Jesus on my left side. He kept on holding my left hand. It was a breakthrough in my life. I still feel God’s presence and I had the best night sleep last night! Thank You Lord for my healing! Praise the Lord. We serve an awesome God! Adela R, age 56, NY “I was greatly blessed when joining you at last Saturday night's meeting at the Signs, Wonders and Miracles Gathering in Long Island, NY. It was my first time there and my first time seeing you under this new anointing. Thank you for praying for me for an impartation for healing as well as providing the cassette tapes on the Transferable Power of the Anointing. I have listened almost completely through one tape and the anointing is ALL over the tape. I even found a wonderful place of prayer in my house. When you spoke the words "Grabbing the horns of the altar", I was at the bottom of the stairs to my landing. I felt the power of God upon me and began to pray in intercessory prayer for different needs. I continued to listen to the tape and it was such a blessing as I found myself by the tape player again kneeling in prayer and fellowship with the Lord. My husband came home and yes, I barely heard Him enter. I finally had to turn the tape off to talk and fellowship with my husband. THANK YOU and God Bless you. I KNOW that God is working out His plan for my life (and yours) and that of my husband's. (I have been praying for him for almost 30 years.) I have begun again praying for Christians with unsaved spouses and believing God for the miracle of their salvations. Have a BLESSED day and I just so praise Jesus for your ministry and the ministry of the Holy Spirit which is reaching out to the saved and unsaved alike. God Bless you!!” Marge H, NY
A Powerful, Life-changing Deliverance
Apr 16, 2004
“I attended the Signs, Wonders and Miracles Gathering in Center Moriches. I attended without needing a physical healing but was hoping to get a message from God regarding the call he has for my life. On April 16th my life was forever changed. Instead of God giving me the message I was hoping for, he delivered me from my past. Something that has been chained to me since I was a child. I suffered from a very traumatic childhood, that was brought all through out my adulthood. Everything negative just seemed to attach itself to me. I had suppressed memories, depression, rejection and feelings of worthlessness just following me all over the place. The second night of the conference God came upon me and took all the roots out of me. I experienced a deliverance I had only heard of. Since that night, I cannot look back. I can't even try to think about my past because it is truly gone. I have no more shame or regrets. All I see ahead of me is God. Even when something comes against me during the day, I just give it to God and immediately it leaves me because there is no more root for it to attach itself to. All I have in my heart and mind is a constant praise and worship for him. He's been speaking to me regarding the call on my life and is getting me prepared for it. God is truly amazing, and all the glory is given unto Him.”
Easter Signs and Wonders Conference-Report Three
Apr 4, 2004
EASTER SIGNS AND WONDERS CONFERENCE – REPORT THREE AT 9PM MY POWER WILL FLOW THROUGH THIS PLACE! God’s presence and power increased to an even higher level the last two nights of the conference. Each night we had between 15-20 churches represented from across the West Virginia region as well as from several other states, including Florida. All together I would say there were at least 30 churches represented. God blesses the unity of His people! It was around 8:30pm when God spoke to Matt that He was going to move in a special way at exactly 9:00pm. After an hour and a half of worship already, Matt continued to lead the congregation deeper into His presence. As the congregation lifted their voices in worship, the manifested power of the Holy Spirit swept through the sanctuary at exactly 9:00pm. People all across the sanctuary could feel the fire of God burning in their bodies and some felt the wind of the Spirit blow over them. The tangible healing presence invaded the air. Matt began to call out various words of knowledge the Lord was healing. As testimonies were called for, people came streaming down to the altars to share how God had healed them. We had people lined up from one end of the altar all the way to the other end. As they shared their testimonies the power of God would them come upon them again with many deeply touched by the Holy Spirit. A GLORIOUS WAVE OF HEALING SWEEPS THROUGH THE SANCTUARY INSTANTLY HEALING AT LEAST 25 PEOPLE! Here are some of the healings people shared as they came forward to testify: “I had suffered from back pain in my lower back. I feel it when I lift heavy things, such as when I do heavy lifting at my job. The healing in my back was like a burning relief in my lower back. Then my back was so eased like I could bend down and touch my toes. And I could move a lot better than I had been. I could not pick up much heavy stuff because sharp pains would go through my back and now thanks to my Father in Heaven the pain has gone away!” Paula R., VA “I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia, low blood sugar, a form of diabetes. I had my hands up and felt the wind of God on my fingertips and the heat of God went through my entire body. In the midst of this Brother Matt Sorger said someone is being healed of diabetes. I know I’m healed. Thank you Jesus!” Margie F., WV “As we were worshipping the Lord I felt the fire and the heat and the anointing enter in through the top of my head and my whole body cavity lit up and then you said diabetes. I didn’t know what he was doing until then. I’ve been praying for this deliverance all week.” “The chest pain is gone! I’ve had it for 3-4 years. I’ve had surgery and had a splint put in my chest. It was like a real hot feeling went through me and all the pain is gone!” “Just before you called out chest pains the power of God hit me. About 3 months ago my chest was hearting real bad. The doctors were going to send me to a heart specialist if the pain didn’t go away. Right before you said chest pain my chest started burning and it felt like something real hot was being poured over me. I feel like I’m healed in the name of Jesus!” “I’ve had pains in my knees for the past several weeks. The pain just went away! I couldn’t lift my leg before without pain.” “I hurt my shoulders by working out. I got this warm tingling feeling in my shoulders and now I can move it with no more pain.” “When I was 6 I had a bicycle accident. I flipped and hit a tree and it messed up my disks. I felt this warm heat and now it doesn’t hurt anymore. It hurt all the time before.” “I’ve had headaches really bad. When you called it out my head started shaking and all the pain left!” “I had really sharp pains in my chest like someone was stabbing me. The moment you called out chest pains, I felt a burning in my chest and felt extremely better the moment you said it.” “I just got over pneumonia and have had trouble breathing. It felt really warm and I started to breathe really well. It surprised me. I didn’t expect it to happen.” “I fell a week ago and hurt my thigh and knee and twisted it. It was hurting and I’ve been limping on it. When you said “physical pain” all the pain went away.” “I’ve had pain in my shoulder and right arm for years. But it’s all gone!” “I felt a ray of sunshine go through my entire body. My mom has had Chrome’s Disease and I’ve been really worried. But now I feel like I don’t have anything to worry about.” “I fell down the stairs two weeks ago and dislocated my shoulder. I had knocked myself out I fell so hard. I felt the fire come on me like a real heavy heat. Then I could move my shoulder forward with no more pain.” “I had diabetes and felt the electricity of God go through me. When you called out diabetes I was praying for God to heal me.” “I’ve had a bad back for years. Since I was senior in high school I’ve had arthritis. When I walked in here I could hardly stand. The Holy Sprit went through me and the pain is completely gone. It’s fabulous!” “I had invited my friend and was interceding for him because he had chronic back pain. But I’ve had back pain and abdominal pain for about 5 years and just when we were worshipping the Lord, the Lord told me to tarry for Him and a surge of power came over me releasing and moving every infirmity out of my body. All the pain is gone from my abdomen, back and leg. The doctor said I had rheumatoid arthritis and anglo-spinanitus. But all the pain is gone!” “I closed my eyes and raised my hands and my hands have been hot! I know God has touched me.” “I’ve had fibromyalgia for 10 years and this arm had been hurting for about 6 months and the pain just left. I also had tumors in my colon like you mentioned and in my abdomen area. All the pain just went away!” “I felt tingling in my finger tips and the power of God going through my body. I know I’ve been healed!” “I felt fire go through my right leg. I had hurt it and pulled a muscle. Now I can move it with no more pain.” “I’ve been diabetic since I was five. Where my pump is it’s been hot.” CELL PHONE HEALINGS There was such a strong healing anointing present that after receiving these testimonies we sent the healing command via cell phone to many who were sick at home. The power of God moved through the airwaves and touched those on the other end. There is no time or distance in the Spirit. Testimonies started to come back of people on the other end being touched by the power of God! FAITH FOR CREATIVE MIRACLES After this incredible wave of healing Matt ministered on Faith for Creative Miracles. Many were deeply encouraged in their faith through this message. Matt exposed some of the misconceptions of what faith is. The truth of God’s word set many free from striving and refocused their attention on the Author and Perfector of their faith, Jesus Christ. Matt shared on the secret of real faith and how this kind of faith can truly move mountains and heal every sickness. Matt also shared on how to obtain this kind of faith. This is a great message for those wanting to understand what real faith is and how to access faith for creative miracles in your life and ministry. This message can be ordered by calling 631-696-4950 or by emailing us at email@example.com. IMPARTATION OF THE MIRACLE ANOINTING Saturday night was impartation night. Matt ministered a powerful word on the tangible, transferable power of the anointing and how to not only receive an impartation but keep it so you keep climbing to new levels of glory! It was both deep and humorous and brought a great balance to the truth of impartation while understanding the need to dig your own well. Matt also tied in the depths of intimacy we experience in the Communion and how impartation and resurrection life are released in us every time we receive the blood and body of Christ. This message was preached on Good Friday. I encourage you to order this message today. I know it will greatly minister to you. You can order it by calling 631-696-4950 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also order all three tapes for only $15.00 plus $2.00 for shipping and handling. BODIES WERE LYING ALL OVER THE CHURCH SANCTUARY, FOYER AND OVERFLOW ROOM! After ministering the word and receiving Communion, Matt laid hands on everyone in the church for an impartation of the anointing. The power of God moved upon the congregation leaving bodies on the floor all throughout the sanctuary, in the foyer and in the over flow room. What a glorious night we had concluding our Easter Signs and Wonders Conference! We look forward to future ministry in West Virginia.
Easter Signs and Wonders Conference-Report Two
Apr 4, 2004
EASTER SIGNS AND WONDERS CONFERENCE – REPORT TWO ANGELS SENT ON ASSIGNMENT TO BRING BACK PRODIGAL SONS AND DAUGHTERS – GET READY FOR HOUSELHOLD SALVATION! God continued to move in miraculous ways. Tuesday night we had a special youth emphasis with many young people responding to the moving of the Spirit. The meeting began with a powerful time of worship during which Matt saw a vision of a multitude of angels being sent into the service. He could see them flying around in circle formation over the people getting ready to be sent out on their commission from the Lord. He also saw many more coming in down the isles of the church marching in perfect formation. They were warring angels being sent on assignment by the word of the Lord to help bring back prodigal sons and daughters. Matt began to prophecy about household salvation coming THIS YEAR! Sons and daughters that had strayed from God would be drawn back by the Holy Spirit. Matt could see the glory of God filling entire households this year. The congregation moved into a time of corporate prayer commissioning the host of heaven to go forth on their assignment. A GENERATION OF FORERUNNERS After this time of prayer, Matt ministered on touching the flame of God and becoming a forerunner for revival. He shared prophetically what God is doing in this younger generation. The Lord spoke to Matt before the service that He was passing the torch to this generation and that many would be sent out to the nations to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth. Matt exhorted the people from the lives of Moses, John the Baptist and Elijah. He shared how the flame of God burns in the wilderness place where the Lord prepares those who will be a voice for Him. The wilderness is not only a place of testing where you come out in power, but it is also a place of consecration, separation and intimacy with God where you hear His voice and become a forerunner of what He is doing in the earth. MASS BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT As young people ran to the altars to respond to the word of the Lord the power of God came mightily upon them. Then a young child about 3 years old came up to Matt to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. As Matt prayed for him the Holy Spirit quickened Matt to open the altars for all who wanted to receive the baptism. There were at least ten young people powerfully filled with the Spirit with the gift of tongues being released in them along with an impartation of other spiritual gifts. There were also several adults filled with the Spirit for the first time as well. It was a powerful night with many lives impacted by God’s presence and power. Matt received some words of knowledge for the young people that some had grown up in an atmosphere of harsh, angry words and as a result there are times they struggle with anger. Many young people responded and were set free from the anger they felt in their hearts. “Your ministry came to my church, Voice of Praise Worship Center, April 4 - 9. It was called the Easter Signs and Wonders Conference. I wanted to say thanks to Matt for helping my friends and I. We are youths at the church. One of my friends has been having a lot of problems with cutting herself and emotional problems at home. Ever since Sunday night, the first night that Matt was there, she’s been a whole lot happier. She finally got a real relationship with God and Jesus. So have many other of my friends. My mother was healed of her stomach when she came and of the bitterness she had toward my father. Tuesday was the day when Matt focused on the youth. I finally got to know God for real and I stopped hating my brother. Although I say it was one of the worst days of my life...it was also the best. I stayed up that night and prayed for everyone I knew. I thanked God for sending Matt to our church and I cried myself to sleep (tears of joy). It was the best week of my life. I thank Matt and his parents soooo much for what they did.” Elizabeth, WV GOD’S WILL TO HEAL Wednesday night Matt ministered on God’s Will to Heal. He brought the congregation through both the Old and New Testament and proved by the Word of God that it was God’s heart and desire to make His people completely whole. Many in the congregation received an impartation of faith as the Holy Spirit quickened the truth of God’s word to their hearts. This is a powerful message for those struggling to receive their healing. You shall know the Truth and the Truth will set you free! This tape, God’s Will to Heal, can be ordered by calling 631-696-4950 or by e-mailing email@example.com. There was a powerful move of the Spirit during the healing altar call. “I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I was taking muscle relaxers, a mild antidepressant, and pain pills. I have suffered with this since 1993. I felt the power of God like waves go through my body and the tension in my muscles began to leave. As Matt said “Fibromyalgia, I command you to leave her body in the name of Jesus,” all the tension and pain in my muscles left. I became totally relaxed with no more pain. I have had chronic pain in my body for the past 25 years. I thank God and give Him the praise!” Helen P., WV “Several years ago I rolled a mowing tractor down a hill and was thrown onto the ground. I suffered a broken shoulder and collar bone and then the nerves all down my spine began to cause me pain, even down in my feet. After this I slipped and fell causing more injury to my spine. Praise God through His wonderful grace He healed my pain. I slept all night with no medication after having years of pain. My spine seemed to have little fingers working up and down my spine all night long. Praise God, I give Him all the glory!” Pat C., WV When Pat testified of her healing she was able to cross her legs and sit on her knees, which she had not been able to do for years!
Easter Signs and Wonders Conference-Report One
Apr 4, 2004
EASTER SIGNS AND WONDERS CONFERENCE – REPORT ONE What a time we had during our Easter Signs and Wonders Conference at Voice of Praise Worship Center in Bluefield, WV. I must say that this has been one of the best conferences we’ve been a part of. Pastor Andy Byrd, a new part of our extended ministry family on the road, along with his ministry team and staff did a superb job in organizing the conference. There were at least 30 churches represented during the conference. With six nights of meetings there was a tremendous regional impact made in West Virginia. I hope you enjoy the reports. May they spark new faith in your heart for the supernatural and the miraculous. I pray even as you read that the healing virtue of Christ would come right through this computer screen into your life and family! God bless you and hope to see you in a future conference. Matt Sorger SUNDAY KICK-OFF – THE TRIUMPHAL ENTRY Sunday morning started our Easter Signs and Wonders Conference at Voice of Praise Worship Center in Bluefield, WV. Matt ministered on Christ’s Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem. Matt expounded on some great truths from this historic account found in Luke 19. The congregation corporately invited the King of Glory to come in to our midst. 1. The Son of Man, the King of Kings made His triumphal entry on a donkey. He sent His disciples to loose the donkey and bring it to Him. If anyone was to ask them why they were doing this their response was to be “Because the Lord has need of it.” Still today the Lord is looking for someone who will carry His Glory. All He needs is a donkey. When the Lord finds that man or woman who will carry His glory He says “Loose that one and bring them to me. I have need of them.” The Lord has need of you today. He calls you by name and looses you from the bondage of sin and the world so you can carry His glory into the earth as a humble servant. 2. God’s looking for radical worshippers. The Pharisees told Jesus to rebuke His disciples for crying out in worship. Religious people will always be offended by true worship. But Jesus said “If they don’t cry out, the rocks will.” One way or another Jesus will get the worship He deserves from His creation. If we don’t cry out, the rocks will. 3. Jesus wept over Jerusalem because they didn’t recognize the time of their visitation. Matt exhorted the church not to miss their moment of visitation. When Jesus came on the scene many of the religious leaders of the day were looking for a Messiah that would come as a conquering king. They didn’t understand that He had to first come as a suffering servant. Because of their preconceived ideas they missed their moment of visitation even when the Lord Himself came in the flesh and walked among His own people. We must not miss our moment of visitation! Be on guard against religious thoughts and mindsets that can keep you from experiencing the fullness of what God has for you. Good intentions are not enough. We must have a pure heart that seeks after God. During the altar call there was even a spontaneous wave of healing released with 2 backs instantly healed! SUNDAY NIGHT – HEALING REVIVAL IN THE LAND! Sunday night Matt ministered on The Healing Revival being released in the earth today with the demonstration of signs and wonders not only in the church but in the streets where the lost are. There was a mighty impartation released in to the people who were hungry to move in the fullness of God’s miracle power. FREEDOM NIGHT!!! Monday night was FREEDOM night! The Lord spoke to Matt before the service that prison doors would be opened that night. God was setting His people free to soar like eagles. He was calling them to step out of their past and into their future. There was such a move of the Spirit Matt didn’t get to preach. The altar was full of people hungry to go to the next level. What a mighty wave of healing and deliverance was released. Many were not only healed but delivered from demonic oppression. The Lord spoke to Matt about those who were involved in abusive relationships. Ten women responded with many receiving a great deliverance from the Lord. Women were set free from fear, rejection, anger and emotional baggage from their past. It was glorious. One woman testified to feeling a hand go inside her back and pull out a spirit of rejection from her chest. She was so gloriously delivered she said all the heaviness lifted off her chest and she could breath normally and felt light. Other women testified to also being set free. “I was healed from emotions from abusive relationships in the past. God took my bitterness away!” Elizabeth B., WV Matt also discerned a spirit of suicide and depression afflicting some people in the congregation. Four people responded to struggling with suicidal thoughts. The power of God ministered freedom, healing and deliverance to them. There were also many testimonies of healing. A young boy testified to a lump being removed from the back of his neck during worship. “I had a growth on the back of my neck due to a fall. I was diagnosed with a fractured neck. We were worshipping God and I felt a great heat in the back of my neck. The lump is gone!” James G., WV A young girl who had ¼ of her lung collapsed felt a tingling in her lung during worship and believed the Lord healed her. There was a doctor who was healed of deafness in his left ear. The Lord balanced out the sound between both of his ears and opened up his left ear. He said he had not been able to hear his nurses well. God opened up his ear so he could hear. There was another girl healed of asthma. Matt had called out a word of knowledge for asthma and the power of God came upon her. She was able to run around the sanctuary without needing her inhaler! “The doctor had said that it wasn’t a curable thing and I had to use an inhaler for attacks. When Matt was praying over me I felt like God was blowing breaths into my lungs. I was also able to dance in praise to God without having trouble breathing at all. I’m healed in Jesus name!” Brittni F., WV Matt had another word of knowledge for a knee being healed. As he called it out a young man’s injured knee popped and was instantly healed! There was also a mighty outpouring on the young people present in the meeting that night.
Easter Signs and Wonders Conference
Apr 4, 2004
Testimonies from Easter Signs and Wonders Conference With Matt Sorger, April 4-9, 2004 Voice of Praise Worship Center, Bluefield, WV 1.“I had been battling with depression for months. The depression had gotten to the point where I didn’t want to live. I felt so hopeless, I had no joy and my heart was so bogged down with heaviness. I was so broken down. On Monday night (April 5), Matt gave a word for depressed and suicidal people. I went up for prayer, and as he laid his hands on me I fell out under the power of God. I literally felt someone reach their hand down inside my body. All of a sudden the brokenness, heaviness, and depression were gone. Then this gentle breeze came over me and for the first time in months I felt very light and peaceful in mind, body, soul, and spirit. I had not felt that for so long. I haven’t had any suicidal thoughts since that night. To God be the glory!” Susie, age 30 2.“My mother (Carolyn) received prayer for her back over our cell phone (during the service Matt asked us to call our friends or loved ones who needed healing). My mother placed her hand on her back while she received prayer. She stated that she felt a deep, penetrating heat all through her back and down her legs all that evening and into the next morning. She says she feels better than she has in years. She has no pain or strain. She had been receiving injections for the pain. She is praising the Lord for the healing touch she received from Him that night! Also, we previously were not able to get a signal on my cell phone at the church, but that night we were able to contact her on my cell phone without any problems. Praise the Lord!” Kim, age: early 30’s 3.“On Tuesday night, when Matt called for anyone who wanted more of God to come forward, I did. I was on fire, my whole body burned and tingled. I found myself demanding that God change me and rid me of my strongholds and demons. I wanted the feeling of God’s embrace to never leave. I was baptized in the Holy Spirit that night. It was the most indescribable, miraculous, and peaceful thing that has ever happened to me. On Wednesday night, I found myself beginning to be consumed with the fire. On Friday night, while in the pew, I became so engulfed with the Holy Ghost and found myself barely able to stand. The fire and Presence of the Holy Spirit multiplied. What a joyous and miraculous change has been made in my life!” Melanie, age 25 4.“On Sunday morning (April 4), while we were at the altar praising God, I felt a sensation of intense heat in my right lower back that has ached for the past two years. It stopped hurting at that time and has not hurt since then. Then on Monday night (April 5), as we gathered around the altar, Matt said that he saw a chronic hip condition on someone’s right side being healed. This was another chronic pain I had experienced for about six months. It was gone then and has not returned." Brenda, age 43 5.“During praise and worship Friday night (April 9), I closed my eyes and saw an outline of wings – they were big. When Matt was praying for people with curved spines, I felt a heat and fell out automatically. I had heat on my face, and I believe I’m completely healed.” Bethany, age 12 6.“My ear had been hurting for about four days. My Mom said it was water in my ear. On Wednesday night (April 7) I got filled with God and He healed my ear!” Carlie, age 8 7.“On Friday night (April 9) I fell out in the Holy Spirit. Until then that was the most wonderful thing that had happened to me. On Easter Sunday, it happened again, but this time I was able to speak in tongues. I never knew that anyone could feel like that. I don’t even look at things or think about things in the same way I did before. There are a lot of changes in my life and I’ll never be the same. I thank God and give Him all the praise for what He’s done for me.” Leslie, age 25 8.“During church over the week I saw angels in each corner of the church and three angels over the drum cage. Matt’s preaching changed my life forever. I have dug my own well and I’ve found my shovel. I’m a clean Christian. God healed my ear – for weeks I couldn’t hear out of my right ear. God has blessed my life even more than He had before.” Lindsey, age 11 9.“The last night of the conference was an awesome experience. When Matt was going around and [imparting] to everyone, it felt awesome to be filled with the Holy Spirit. I had stomach problems, and I had a burning in my stomach. My stomach has not hurt since and I have never felt more at peace in my life than I do now. Praise God.” Mark, age 22 10.“Each night of the conference, as I would stand to worship and pray, my knees would hurt me so bad I would just want to sit down or leave. On Friday night (April 9) when Matt said to touch the part of your body to be healed, I touched my knees. As I prayed, I immediately felt a warm tingly sensation around both of my knees front and back, like a warm heating pad. It stayed there for a long time and my knees started to get really hot. The pain went away, I know God touched them. I give Jesus the glory.” Amy, age 27 11.“On Tuesday night (April 6), Matt gave a word of knowledge that someone had been wounded and stabbed in the heart by words. I knew that was me. I was led to the Lord and got saved. Matt called me out and prayed for me twice, and said that there was a great and beautiful calling on my life. I was then slain in the Spirit twice. My life has never been the same, I have grown closer to God and have been filled with the Holy Spirit. I also thank God for Ronnie (Veronica) Sorger, because I really needed her at times and she would always be there for me and pray me through. I have found true happiness.” Amanda, age 19 11.“On Tuesday night (April 6), Matt gave a word of knowledge that someone had been having toothaches and to come forward. I knew it was me… I accepted my healing and have not had the toothache since. Thank you Jesus for all your blessings.” Marla, age 45 12.“During the conference, God healed me emotionally and took away the bitterness I had due to abuse. God healed my mouth and my stomach.” Elizabeth 13.“I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia after my blood sugar level kept dropping to 27 (normal range is 70-115); this was happening almost daily. All during the conference I kept praying that God would heal me. During the Thursday night service (April 8), as Matt was praying, I felt a wind brush my fingertips and then fire in my veins (Matt had previously instructed the ushers to cut off the air conditioners because the wind of the Spirit was going to blow through). Then Matt said God was healing someone who was diabetic right then. I claimed it, and my blood sugar level has not been lower than 103 since then. Praise the Lord! Not only did God physically heal me, but my spirit is renewed.” Margie, age 36 14.“Matt spoke a word to me on Sunday night, April 4. He said that the Lord was saying I should run toward the call of God in my life, not away from it. He anointed my hands for the work. On Wednesday morning, April 7, I was disturbed during my prayer time by the door bell. I was also watching Matt’s video about the “Tsunami Wave Rally.” Our local pest control serviceman had come for our regular spraying. I wanted to get rid of him and get back to my prayer time. However, after asking him how he was doing, he began to tell me about his back pain and loss of sleep at night. I asked if I could pray for him, and he agreed. I placed my hands on his lower back and prayed, feeling nothing. However, this man was surprised at what he experienced. He said to me, “You would not believe the heat that came from your hands into my back.” He felt the bones in his back pop, and felt that his back was healed. I was more surprised because I felt no heat flowing through my hands. I knew then the anointing on my hands was real, regardless of my feelings. This word given by Matt was true. This word changed my life and opened my eyes to a deeper truth.” Mike, age 47 15.“On April 4, I was healed of asthma. About five minutes before Matt said God wanted to heal someone of asthma, I started having an asthma attack. As Matt was praying over me, I felt like God was breathing into my lungs. Then as I fell under His power, it felt like my lungs were numb. Then on Thursday night (April 8), Matt said, “God is healing someone of chest pains right now.” I had also been suffering from chest pains for several months, and the doctor wanted me to see a heart doctor. When Matt spoke that word, it felt like a fire in my chest and like someone was reaching in and fixing the pain. I’m healed in Jesus’ Name!” Brittni, age 13
Pastor Andy Byrd’s Report
Apr 4, 2004
Pastor’s Report on Easter Signs and Wonders Conference At Voice of Praise Worship Center, Bluefield, WV April 4-9, 2004 With Revivalist Matt Sorger Report by Senior Pastor Andy Byrd The Easter Signs and Wonders Conference with Revivalist Matt Sorger, held at our church April 4-9, 2004, was truly transformational for our church and our area! Our church, our geographic area, and the people who attended this conference will never be the same! The Lord had been doing incredible and awesome things at Voice of Praise Worship Center for several months before the conference, but He demonstrated His favor and awesome power in a tremendous, increased measure during the conference. It was a true regional conference, with people attending from as many as 20 different churches in one night. People came from as far away as upstate New York and Ft. Lauderdale, FL to attend this conference. Many verified healings and deliverances occurred each night of the conference. People were healed of many different physical infirmities and afflictions, often as a result of a word of knowledge given by the Lord through Matt Sorger. Furthermore, many people testified of receiving emotional and mental healing, and healing of “wounds of the soul.” Also, many people received salvation (the greatest miracle!) and the baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire. Several people experienced heavenly visions of angels and the glory cloud of God as the Lord manifested His Presence and glory among us! The Friday night impartation service was one of the most incredible, indescribable experiences I have ever participated in or witnessed. According to Matt’s instruction, the large crowd of people lined up all over the facility, even over in the gymnasium, and all of them were overcome by a massive wave of the Holy Spirit! Many testified of receiving a life-changing impartation of the fire and power of God as Matt laid hands on each one, including myself! I have also been forever changed and transformed by the power of God, and He continues to save, heal, deliver, and baptize people in the Holy Spirit. We cannot really express in words our thanksgiving and praise to God for what He has done and is doing among us, we just want more of Him! We also cannot thank God enough for such choice servants of the Kingdom as Matt Sorger and his parents Rich and Veronica Sorger. Matt Sorger is truly a man of God that He uses in awesome ways, with signs, wonders, and miracles accompanying the Word of God that he preaches so effectively. Thank you Matt for being such a devoted servant and instrument of the Lord. And thank You Jesus, You are awesome, and You do miracles so great!
Testimony from Wales-Revival Generation
Mar 31, 2004
Just to say thank you so much for your encouraging prophetic word on the elijah list. It really encouraged my heart in the Lord for a number of reasons. It was great to read about the Welsh revival and I live in Wales just a few miles away from where the young revivalist Evan Roberts received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the divine touch that sparked the 1904 revival. As you can see from my email address my heart is to prepare the way of the Lord. My name is Jonathan and I'm 30 years old, I was encouraged also how you described 30 as being significant. Your word confirmed so much to me and brought me hope as the last 6 months has been a difficult time. One of the things God is leading me to do is to pioneer a new church in Wales (with my father who has been a pentecostal pastor). God has told us to dig a well, to see living wells of his presence, healing and salvation spring up. When I read in your word about the oil wells with 2004 written on them, it was like a sign from heaven that we're on the right track. God had already spoken to us about oil wells of the Holy Spirit here in Wales so waht you said was amazing! Finally, what you said about a lifestyle of continuous worship, prayer and devotion is so true. I am a worship leader and songwriter and the Lord has been releasing new songs about this! All in all your word was very significant for me personally and I''m sure it will be a blessing to others all around the world! Please pray for us here in Wales for a fresh outpouring and for this generation to rise up. Thanks once again. Have you ever been to Wales?
Pastoral Thank you
Mar 17, 2004
I wanted to thank you personally for coming all the way across the country to bless and blast Amy and I, Rev church, Bethel Chapel and the NW Region. You were just a serious blessing of encouragement to all of us. Many were touched by your willingness to come here and pour out into all of us. We definately enjoyed having you!
Revival Report for Washington and Pennsylvania
Mar 17, 2004
What a miracle working God we serve. God is still in the healing business! In His love and mercy He is stretching forth His hand to make His people completely whole. During our trip to Washington, March 17-21, the Lord moved in a marvelous way. Not only were people filled and refreshed with the Holy Spirit and encouraged and empowered by His word but we also witnessed some tremendous healings. Here are some of the healing testimonies that came in during our time of ministry in Washington at Bethel Chapel and Revelation Church: When we called for testimonies in the service a woman came running down the center isle of the church. As she ran, a man stood in the back of the church holding a cane up in his hand. He yelled out "I have never seen her walk or run without her cane!" She was healed of arthritis in her hip and knees. She could run and walk around the church with no more pain or use of her cane. "I had pain in my body for over 15 years. The doctors diagnosed it as an auto immune condition, Lupus, Epstein Barr and Fibromyalgia. All the pain has completely left my body!" Maureen Kimball, WA "I suffered from head pain with migraines and in my sinuses. The doctors didn't know what was wrong. As soon as I was prayed for the pain was completely gone." Kaeli Patrick, WA There was another lady who was healed on the left side of her neck and shoulder. All the pain left her body. Another woman testified of all the lumps in her throat and knee completely disappearing. From Washington we traveled to Pennsylvania. We ministered in PA March 26-28 at My Father's House and Bedford A/G. What a tremendous move of the Spirit we experienced. Before the service the Lord showed me a black spot on someone's lung like a growth or a tumor and told me He wanted to heal cancer. There was a man in the service suffering from lung cancer. As we prayed for him he began to gasp out loud "I can breathe, I can breathe!" He could hardly believe it. All the pain left his lung area and his lungs opened up. He hadn't been able to breathe for 3 months because of the cancer. But as we prayed the Lord's power was released bringing healing to his lungs. As we prayed for the sick a woman was healed in her back. As she fell out under the power of God, all the pain left her back. She was under the power of God for quite some time. She testified that normally she would be in excruciating pain trying to get up off the floor. All the pain was completely gone! We prayed for another lady by phone from the service who was suffering with cancer in her body. She was too weak to come to the service. Let me tell you, there is no time or distance in the Spirit. As we prayed for her over the phone the power of God came upon her and all the pain left her body. She was so touched by God she got dressed and came to the service to testify of the quickening power of God in her body! What an awesome God we serve! Another man who was suffering from tremendous shoulder and neck pain testified that after receiving prayer in the service, the next morning he woke up pain free for the first time! Before the Friday night service the Lord gave me a new message on the 30 Characteristics of the Glory of God that will rest on the Last Day's Church. What a powerful word this was prophesying of the greater glory that will rest on the church in this hour. Saturday night I ministered on some new revelation the Lord has given me on the Spirit of Faith and how to operate in the faith for creative miracles. Many in the body of Christ have grown discouraged praying prayers with out seeing the results. Many think they are operating in faith when actually they are operating in hope or presumption. There's a big difference. True faith produces results. Even just a mustard seed of true faith can move the greatest mountain. I share on what this faith is and how to access it in your life and ministry to see the release of creative miracles. One woman testified that it was the most clear and balanced message on faith she has ever heard. It's a must for those who want to see prayers answered and creative miracle power released in your life. Sunday morning was a blowout service. The glory of God so filled the sanctuary that I didn't even have time to preach. The Lord had other things in mind for this service. It's important to stay sensitive to what the Holy Spirit is doing and not let a preconceived program dictate what happens. We've had too much of church with out God in it. When His glory shows up everything changes! A strong prophetic flow was released in the service as the Lord gave me prophetic words and visions for many in the congregation. Then as a congregation we moved into a time of corporate intercession for this region of Pennsylvania. The Lord showed me in a vision the pillar of fire descending on this region of PA for a 100 mile radius in every direction. This area is on the Lord's map for a powerful visitation and move of His Spirit. -------------------------------------------------------------- FAITH FOR CREATIVE MIRACLES ORDER YOUR COPY TODAY!

SIGNS AND WONDERS IN IOWA
Mar 11, 2004
Tonight was our first night in Alkeny, Iowa at Heartland Assembly of God. The church was packed to full capacity with standing room only. As the crowd passionately worshipped God the presence of the Holy Spirit filled the sanctuary in a marvelous way. Matt ministered on the "Preparations of a Forerunner". He shared on how John the Baptist was prepared in the wilderness, a place of separation, consecration and intimacy. When God is preparing you to be a voice He will draw you out into the wilderness place to be consecrated and separated for His purposes. Matt also shared how Jesus was prepared and tested in the wilderness before being empowered with the Holy Spirit and how Moses encountered the fire in the burning bush out on the back side of the desert. He also shared from the life of Elijah who was finally able to hear the still small voice of God in the wilderness cave. Sometimes you need to be away from all the distractions and voices around you to be able to hear the still small voice of the Spirit within you. That is the wilderness place, the secret place of communion with God. It's out of this place that God releases us in power. As Matt ministered the word many responded by giving their lives in complete devotion to the purposes of God. Apathy, lukewarmness and complacency were renounced as the people prayed to be filled with a fresh fire of the Holy Spirit. Matt called out several prophetic words for the young people. As he laid hands on them he began to prophecy their ministry gifts and callings and released an impartation of the fire of God. The altar area was full of young people powerfully touched by the Holy Spirit. Some lay on the floor for quite some time shaking under the power of the Spirit. God was doing a deep work. Then the healing anointing came into the atmosphere and people began to receive a healing touch from God in their bodies. Matt called out many words of knowledge for healing with the power of God moving mightily on people's bodies. Many testified to receiving instant healing. There were several dramatic healings including one man being completely healed of a tumor in his head. As the power of God came upon his body the tumor completely disappeared. Another young girl testified to being completely healed in her back with the lumps and pain in her back completely disappearing. There was yet another woman who testified to all the pain in her back completely disappearing as well. For four years her back had pain just at the touch. We were pushing on her back with no pain at all! Over the next several days many more received a healing touch from God. A woman who had suffered from Carpal Tunnel for years and had 6 operations was completely healed by God's power! The last night of the conference Matt called out a word of knowledge for back's being healed. He physically felt the word of knowledge as if something were being pulled out of his back. Suddenly three people experienced instant healing in their back area. Another boy had his foot and ankle healed and another young man's throat was instantly healed. He testified to feeling "an electric zap" in his throat. And another man's knees were completely healed. There was a woman who testified of being completely healed of back ciatic pain. Here are some more healing testimonies: "I had deafness in my left ear. I was told 20 years ago that nothing could be done. The eardrum damage has gotten progressively worse over the years. I received hearing in my left ear. I had a clearness come to me and could hear a whisper from behind me." Laura A. Ankeny, IA "I suffered from constant discomfort in my feet due to Plantar Facitis where the muscles between the ball of the foot and heal tear causing inflammation and bone spurs. I had received treatment 8 years ago with anti-inflamatories, special inserts, orthodics, expensive shoes and cortizone shots in my heal. As the anointing moved upon me my feet became light, tingling and numb. The pain left and the pressure in my heal is completely gone." Kristi J. Ankeny, IA "I had pain in my back, neck, legs, hips and suffered from arthritis. For 4-5 years I've seen every doctor possible. I experienced a peace and a warmth in my body. I've never felt so wonderful. I am so thankful that I have no more pain or burning in my body anymore. Amen. Thank you Jesus!" Sherri J. Ankeny, IA "I had lumps and pain in my lower back. I was treated and they weren't sure of the diagnosis. My back pain went away and my lumps left." Meg K. Ankeny, IA "God completely healed my knee pain." Rachel O. Ankeny, IA We thank God for the awesome move of His Spirit and for His healing presence!
The Spirit Falls in Lake, Isabella
Feb 12, 2004
Thursday night, Feb.12, we began our Signs and Wonders Crusade at Kern Christian Fellowship in Lake Isabella, CA. Several churches were represented as we came together hungry for more of God. There was an anticipation in the air as God's people worshipped with a holy zeal. Matt shared his testimony of his family's salvation when he was 14 years old and how his mother was radically healed through a power encounter in a Charismatic Catholic healing mass. He shared on his call to the healing ministry and the vision God gave him of the last days healing revival. He preached on contending for the miraculous and carrying the revival fire of the Holy Spirit out in to the streets where the lost are. MATT'S PERSPECTIVE: "During the ministry time there was a wave of healing released over the people. I could sense the atmosphere changing as the healing presence of Jesus filled the sanctuary. There really is tremendous power released with the operation of the word of knowledge and healing anointing. I'm learning more and more that when we tune into the Holy Spirit and follow His leading tremendous miracles take place. I've learned before each service to take time to wait on the Lord for specific words of knowledge. When I call these words out people receive instant healing. It's the John 5:19 principle. Jesus only did on earth what He saw the Father doing in heaven. When we take the time to see what God is doing in heaven and then proclaim it in the earth the supernatural is released. There were several conditions the Lord specifically revealed to me before the service. One was a man who had a knee injury during a sports activity. Several people responded to having knee injuries but there was only one that was related to a sports activity. When we released healing over the knees, the man related to the sports injury was instantly healed. When it comes to the word of knowledge details are important. I don't have the power in myself to heal anyone. God is the Healer. But when I take the time to listen God reveals things by His Spirit that releases His faith and power to produce a miracle. I will pray for everyone to be healed and I believe it's God's will for all to be healed. But when I'm operating under a specific unction of the Holy Spirit with a word of knowledge something supernatural is released and miracles happen. I'm not speaking my own will and desire. I'm speaking forth something specific revealed to me by the Holy Spirit. HERE'S JOHN'S TESTIMONY: "I had a torn meniscus, a knee injury from sports. I saw my family MD and he sent me to a specialist who suggested surgery. I was at the meeting and Matt said he had a word about someone with a knee injury. I knew it was me. As soon as he started praying I felt comfort in my knee." John, CA John was able to kneel down and sit on his knees with no more pain! I also had a word of knowledge of deafness in the ear due to ear damage from loud noise. As I rebuked deafness and commanded ears to open a woman who was standing in the audience had both her ears pop open. She came forward to testify of how the Lord had opened and cleared her ears. The power of God continued to touch many as words of knowledge were released. Danielle had suffered from an asthma condition where she had to keep an inhaler on her at all times. She testified "As other people were getting healed I felt my lungs opening and I could breathe freely." Danielle, CA Many raised their hands to testify of instant healings in their bodies. God presence was glorious!" Friday night Matt taught on the biblical precedence for divine healing and proved through the scriptures that it was God's will to be healed. He taught on how supernatural faith for healing is released when the Holy Spirit takes the written "logos" word of God and breathes life into it making it a quickened "rhema" word. The word moves from being text on a page to a living word in the heart made alive by the Holy Spirit. This is when we move from head faith to heart faith. Matt released several words of knowledge which broke the atmosphere open for more healing and then released the prayer team to lay hands on the sick and pray the prayer of faith. Saturday night there was a tremendous rending in the heavens as God's power and presence again invaded the atmosphere. Matt ministered on "digging your own well." He taught on the transferring power of the anointing and how God's power can be caught through anointed relationships and by being in the atmosphere of the anointing. But he emphasized that catching someone else's anointing is not enough. Momentary touches from God can fade if we do not learn to dig our own well and lay hold of God's presence for ourselves. Then when we receive impartation from others it simply adds to the well we have already cultivated in our own hearts causing us to move from glory to glory. Matt released several prophetic words of knowledge including specific individual's names. As these words were released many received a healing touch in their body. There was also a deliverance anointing released for those struggling with addictions including smoking. One woman testified of being set free and the next day had no need to smoke again! There were those in the service that testified to experiencing the power of God for the first time in their lives. One man said he was a sceptic and didn't believe in falling in the Spirit. He thought it was just emotion until it happened to him. God's power came upon him in such an extraordinary way he felt the electricity of the Spirit flowing through his body and as Matt preached he was unable to get off the floor for an hour. He said God was setting him free! The pastor also testified to receiving a powerful touch from the Lord. When he was prayed for his body shook under the power of God. He had never experienced this before! It was a glorious move of the Holy Spirit with many being refreshed, filled and healed by the revival fire of God's presence. Only eternity will testify of all that was accomplished in people's hearts and lives this weekend. Thank God that He is still working miracles and changing lives today! WE THANK GOD FOR HIS HEALING PRESENCE!
Signs and Wonders in California
Feb 8, 2004
We began our CA tour at Harvest Rock Church in Pasadena, CA with Pastors Che Ahn and Lou Engle of The Call. What a powerful time in the Spirit we had. Arriving in CA that afternoon I stepped off the plane and into the service that night. While on the plane the Lord spoke to me about a “Mary Ann” which was “Mary Ahn”, Che’s daughter. We released a prophetic word for her concerning her prophetic ministry call. A wave of healing swept through the congregation with many receiving a miracle touch from the Lord. Here are a few of the testimonies: “I suffered from lower and mid back pain due to a back sprain and nerve damage. I’ve had physical therapy 1-5 days a week for three months. While I was in the service during the preaching I felt the Holy Spirit almost constantly and it felt like the Lord put a cloak around my neck, like a cape down my back. Praise Jesus! Before that I felt what seemed to be like an angel standing behind me. You said the Lord was healing backs. I felt the heat on my back and fell to my knees in tears.” Stacey received a tremendous healing in her back and could move freely with no more pain. Stacey, CA John received both a physical and emotional healing. “I’ve suffered from heart valve pain and cramps in my stomach. I felt the heaviness of God’s presence and cleansing.” John, CA “I had allergies and could not sleep laying down and had breathing difficulty. The doctor had prescribed an inhaler. After the prayer ministry at Harvest Rock Church, I could take deep breaths without coughing. The heavy congestion cleared up.” John, CA “For 20 years I’ve suffered from Rosacea, a severe skin disorder causing redness, rashes and dryness of the skin. I had sensitivities to water, chemicals and was allergic to cosmetics. It did not respond to treatment. It is incurable and no dermatologist could help me. When Matt told us to lay hands on our bodies where we needed healing I touched my face. Suddenly I started coughing as if I were about to vomit. After that I felt lighter in my chest area and empty in my stomach. I testified to give glory to God for setting me free!” Karen, CA After ministering to the sick we layed hands on the entire congregation for the impartation of the healing anointing. Many received a deep impartation for miracles, signs and wonders. SPONTATNEOUS YOUTH PRAYER MEETINGS I sent out a previous report on our ministry in Lake Isabella, CA. I received a phone call from the pastor that the youth were so powerfully touched while we were there that since then they have been calling spontaneous prayer meetings and crying out to God for more of His Spirit! God is on the move! Continuing our ministry time in California we had two glorious nights in Barstow at Living Waters Fellowship. I WAS TAKEN DEEP INTO THE HEART OF THE LORD There is nothing like God’s presence! That is what I live for. As we worshipped together I was taken so deep in the Spirit that I could hardly open my mouth to speak when it came time for me to minister. The Lord had taken me in the Spirit into His very heart. As I went deeper and deeper and deeper I became completely unaware of my earthly surroundings. All I could see was the depths of His heart. Then I became aware that I was under the train of His robe as seen in Isa. 6:1 where the train of the Lord’s robe filled the temple. God was romancing His bride in holy intimacy. From that place of His presence He began to heal people in the congregation. I saw the Lord healing a condition in the leg. As I called it out healing was released and the pastor’s leg was instantly healed! I ministered prophetically from Isa. 52 on the evangelistic anointing to proclaim the gospel of good news with the power of signs and wonders and on the watchman anointing for prayer and intercession. Many received a powerful impartation of the Spirit that night to begin to operate in a higher dimension of the miraculous with an increase of prophetic dreams and visions. HEALING GLORY The second night brought an even greater release of the healing anointing with many testifying of healing in their bodies. Here are some of those testimonies: A young boy testified “I had been having chest pains. I was given a prescription but nothing seemed to get better. I felt an angel touch the top of my head and then had a release in my chest and I could breath! Thank you Jesus!!!” Immanuel, CA Another young girl testified of healing in her eyes. “I had to wear glasses. Before I had to hold the paper close to my face to read it but now I can read it farther away and I don’t have a headache.” Tiffany, CA Another woman received two healing in her body. “I suffered from tenitus in my elbow. I was on pain medication but it was still painful every day. The lump on my left elbow was miraculously healed. The lump left and I can move my elbow again. I also received a healing in my abdomen. I had suffered from cancer and had my uterus removed. My bladder had also been cut on top. Tonight I received total healing. I felt fire in my stomach area.” Lupe, CA “I had a lump under my eyelid and a cyst in my wrist. I was supposed to have surgery to remove the cyst, but I believed Jesus would heal me. I felt electricity in my hands and body. Both the lump under my eyelid and the cyst is gone!” Lena, CA There were many more touched, filled, empowered and healed by the Lord. STRONG MANIFESTATIONS OF THE SUPERNATURAL Our trip was concluded at Fremont Assembly of God in Fremont, CA. On Thursday I ministered to the School of Ministry and then Friday and Sunday nights we held miracle services. Friday night was a powerful night. I ministered on the Forerunner Anointing of John the Baptist and Elijah. The Lord released a forerunner anointing on His people. Sunday night’s service continued to climb in the Spirit. There was a real release of angelic activity in the service. I could see the realm of the supernatural moving around people. As I called it out many would be moved upon by the Lord. We even had an entire section fall under the weight of His glory at the same time. A VISITATION FROM THE LORD IN THE MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB That afternoon in my hotel room I received a powerful visitation from the Lord and was taken to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. I saw the Bride of Christ being wed to the Bridegroom. It was such a celebration. I could see multitudes from every nation there. The Lord spoke to me about His desire for our love, adoration and worship. He brought me back personally to the place of my first love where I would spend hours a day worshipping Him in His presence. He told me my first calling was to be a worshipper. It wasn’t about the crowds, the miracles or even the ministry. It was about loving Him and serving Him out of that place of my first love. I could feel the fire of that love and passion being infused into my heart. That night I shared on ministering out of first love and expounded on the lives of Saul and David and what it was that set David apart unto the Lord. He had a heart of radical worship, love and humility and always made the presence of God His first priority even as king (2 Sam. 5:12-23). We are called to do the same no matter what our ministry positions or titles are. After I ministered the word the Lord released a tremendous wave of the Spirit over the people and we ended the night praying for the sick. I look forward to our future ministry in California. WE THANK GOD FOR HIS HEALING PRESENCE! IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO INVITE MATT IN TO YOUR CHURCH OR AREA FOR HEALING REVIVAL MEETINGS OR FOR A REGIONAL CONFERENCE OR CRUSADE YOU CAN CONTACT HIS OFFICE AT 631-696-4950 OR EMAIL US AT INFO@MATTSORGER.COM.

My name is Sandra Weir I am 33 years old Mother of two 11 and 7 my Husband and I attend a small Presbyterian church in Laguna Beach Cal. I attended a conference in Canada with Todd Bentley The Secret Place II - Intimacy Encounter Conference. During the conference responding to the Lords prompting and asked a man to impart to me whatever God had for me through Him. I believe it was you Mr. Songer. That act is so unlike me so I know it was the Lord.I just wanted to extend my thankfulness to God for your walk and ministry. God imparted to me so much that week that it is still being unfolded, boldness, truth of God to be spoken out in the midst of unbelief, dreams and visions,words of encouragement for the hurting and unrelentening desire to overcome. Also the words that you have been writing that have been posted on the Elijah list have been speaking out what God is doing in my small fellowship and in me. Gods word is living and powerful and I wanted to confirm in you that you are indeed being used by our Lord to Glorify His name by calling out the generation. Your ministry is effecting change in deep places far greater then your eyes can see in the natural. I praise the Lord for all the good He has deposited in you and may the Lord continue to hide you and your loved ones in the shadow of His wings. May the Lords good favor rest on you and your ministry team and all those close to your heart.

Signs, Wonders & Miracles Conference
Jan 23, 2004
What a powerful weekend we had in Sarasota, FL. Not only was it bright and sunny but God moved in an extraordinary way. Matt ministered in a Signs, Wonders and Miracles Conference hosted by Consuming Fire Ministries. We began Friday night with a tremendous release of God’s glory and healing power as Matt ministered on longing and seeking after the Glory of God (Psalm 63). Everything we need is found in the glory including healing, deliverance, and provision. God is just looking for a resting place for His manifested presence in our lives. Matt shared on how to build God a home He can dwell in. He explained how in 2 Chronicles 2 Solomon was determined to build God a home. Then in 2 Chronicles 5 we see the ark being brought into the inner sanctuary with the glory of God so filling the house not even the priests could stand to minister. Matt shared on His own personal encounter with God’s glory cloud that launched him into the healing ministry. He also prophetically shared on how the mass harvest of the nations and supernatural wealth and provision will be released in God’s glory as seen in Isa. 60. It was a night of great breakthrough. God’s presence continued to increase with every service. Saturday afternoon we had an open air outreach to the youth of the community. Many young people came forward to dedicate their hearts and give their lives for full time ministry. There were also many homeless people there. During the altar call they came forward with many even being “slain in the Spirit” right out in the parking lot. Saturday night there was an outpouring of miracles as God’s presence swept through the sanctuary. Matt began to call out words of knowledge for healing and released the healing anointing wave after wave over the people. Heat and electricity surged through people’s bodies as the Holy Spirit moved upon them completely healing them of their infirmities. Matt also ministered a word on releasing miracles through a life of intimacy with God. He shared some of the deepest truths God has taught him on moving in the healing anointing through being intimate with the Holy Spirit and walking in fruitful relationship with God. Here are a few of the healing testimonies that came in that night: Jill suffered from a condition of blindness in her left eye called Hystoplaomatis Syndrome which was a very large area of scar tissue in the retina resulting from laser surgery. She had no center vision in her eye whatsoever. She could only see a large black spot. As the healing anointing moved upon her the spot began to shrink to half the size it was with her sight being restored even in the center. Jill Marzullo, FL Murdes suffered from joint stiffness and soreness. Matt called out a word of knowledge for healing in the joint area and “a wave of anointing, a warm sensation went through my body, not just once but several times. God was touching and healing me.” Murdes Jones, FL “I had my hands in the air to receive my healing and I just felt the pain in my hands and body just leave. It was awesome!” Nancy Manseau, FL “The power of God was going through my arm then the pain left!” Pastor Louise Jones, FL Wayne received healing in his lower back and neck and also in his right foot. “I felt fire in my chest and stomach, lower back and neck.” Wayne Ivey, FL There were many others that came forward to testify of God’s healing power restoring their bodies. We give Jesus the praise and glory for every miracle! Sunday morning Matt ministered a prophetic word on the Joseph Anointing being released in 2004. It’s a year of release, favor and increase. After Matt ministered the word the glory of God invaded the sanctuary. The atmosphere became electric. It was an unusual visitation of the Glory of God. As we worshipped, the Lord’s presence became so heavy in the room that people all around the sanctuary began to spontaneously fall under the weight of His glory. Three quarters of the congregation fell out under God’s power in an extreme visitation right in their seats. It was like a whirlwind of fire swept through the sanctuary. We touched a realm of the atmosphere of Heaven in a corporate way. His presence was glorious! Sunday night we laid hands on prayer cloths and had an anointing service for the transfer of the healing anointing to be activated in God’s people. Again many received a deep touch from the Lord being stirred in their faith to lay hands on the sick and see them healed. God truly is raising up a mighty army who will move in the power of the Holy Spirit with signs and wonders following them every where they go. We thank God for every life touched and impacted by the glory of God in Florida. It truly is an exciting time to be alive!

I want to thank you for your participation in the conference. In a very real sense it was life changing for me. I feel it brought me to a new level of intimacy with the Lord and into a new season of serving Him. It was the breakthrough for me that I had been seeking for a long time. It is as though there is a clear division of what was in the past and what will be in the future. The atmosphere was electric with the presence of the Lord. May God richly bless you for your service to Him.
Joel’s Army Youth Conference
Nov 19, 2003
THE COMMISSIONING OF JOEL’S ARMY For years now premier prophets such as Paul Cain and Bob Jones have been clearly prophesying, predicting the arising of an end time army identified as Joel’s Army. These predictions are long standing, and are now in the process of being fulfilled. Joel’s Army is now commencing to be called and commissioned. There is no need to hesitate, all who have a willing heart are summoned. The cry of heaven is “Advance”. In a prophetic experience I was shown -“all who have a willing heart can now go to their spiritual mail box and there they will discover a letter of induction into Joel’s Army. The Call establishment by Lou Engle and others has been used of God to awaken and assemble multitudes of youth in our nation as well as other nations across the earth thus releasing passion and prayer, now however this season is coming to a close, and Joel’s Army is now being commissioned. The "Cause" Let me encourage you this is not an age nor gender thing, it is a heart issue. Do you have the heart of a champion to confront the spirit of this age? As David of old we too must believe there is a true “Cause!” See 1 Samuel 17:29. No longer will the Army be content to muster, it is now time to accomplish great exploits for the Kingdom of God. (See Daniel 11:32). This Army will arise with zeal and focus, knowing well the “Cause”- advancing the Kingdom of God. In Psalms 110:3 we discover that in the day of God’s power His troops will volunteer willingly. What will Joel’s Army accomplish? Mighty signs and wonders on a level not experienced in our life time. These will not be so called big shots, these will be ordinary everyday men and women boys and girls with an awesome anointing of God’s Presence and Power upon their life. Expect to see great and mighty displays and demonstrations of God’s power. by Bobby Conner Demonstration of God’s Power Ministries Box 1028 Moravian Falls, NC. 28654 http://www.bobbyconner.org/ Joel's Army Coming to your town? With powerful worship and teaching as well as ministry impartation times this past week, Joel's Army youth/young adult conference dramatically impacted many lives. Todd Bentley, while preaching in the final session Saturday evening attended by over 600 young people, announced that Fresh Fire Ministries is committed to equipping God’s last days Joel's Army so that it grows in number, power and might. To this end Todd pledged to help sponsor many Joel's Army meetings and conferences all over North America and beyond. If you would like to see a Joel's Army conference come to your city or region contact Fresh Fire today! Inspirational Guest Speakers Thursday, Friday and Saturday Todd shared the platform with several passionate speakers including Nolan Clark, Matt Sorger, Jason Upton, and Pastor Denny Kline. Pastor Denny hosted the Joel's Army conference at the new Albany Vineyard and also shared a moving message about the need to remain pure. Following the message, he released the Father’s blessing over all of the youth present. Matt Sorger, a Fresh Fire Associate Ministry, released a powerful message dealing with signs, wonders, purity and holiness. Matt shared from Revelation 3:18 and Malachi 3:3, about how God uses the fire to purify his sons and daughters and how we live an overcoming life out of the secret place of intimacy with God. He also shared on how a life of radical devotion and purity allow us to become containers for God’s miracle power. Many testimonies were shared on the miraculous being released outside the four walls of the church. He also released a powerful wave of anointing and many in the crowd received mantles for ministry. Many young people received a powerful impartation of God’s Spirit. Nolan Clark who, along with Todd, was a key-note speaker, released several explosive messages about the desire of the Holy Spirit to empower this generation and to help them walk in purity and holiness (a recurring theme of the Holy Spirit during the conference). Nolan released fire at one session and the entire sanctuary was filled with the heat of the fire of God resting on people. He also released a wave of the Joy of the Lord. In that session many of those in attendance were filled and refreshed with the joy of the Lord. The Gospel Confirmed During the Friday afternoon session Todd Bentley preached briefly on the power of God to heal today and to confirm the gospel. Todd called out over twenty words of knowledge, and released a mass healing wave over the youth. The power of God swept through the crowd and many were instantly healed. One young man with poor vision, (a lazy eye) felt fire go through his eye and began to see clearly. Another felt fire course into his lungs and was instantly healed of the asthma he had suffered with for 22 years. One young girl, who had two surgeries for her sinuses, was healed and began breathing clearly for the first time in years. Another girl with scoliosis of the spine felt a "pop" followed by "fire entering her back". She was healed and able to stand up straight for the first time in several years. Dozens of others were also healed in that one wave of healing anointing! Todd also called up one doctor from San Francisco who had just been healed in Abbotsford the week before. Both he and his wife were completely healed from stubborn skin conditions—they testified that they were still totally free of the condition.
THE SPIRIT OF RELIGION WAS BOUND UP!
Oct 26, 2003
The Sunday night anointing service was both powerful and unusual. I experienced something in the Spirit that was quite profound. Now I have to first say that as an individual I am extremely God focused. I choose to focus on the glory and power of God much more than what the enemy is doing. Too many Christians give too much glory and power to a defeated foe. However during the worship on Sunday night my spiritual eyes were opened and the Lord allowed me to see something extraordinary. As we were worshipping God in the Spirit I was taken onto the roof of the church. My eyes were opened and I could see what looked like “King Kong”, a large apelike creature. As we worshipped God I saw this principality become tied up in bonds. At the same time I saw this creature get tied up we experienced an incredible release of the presence and glory of God in the church. The Lord showed me that this was a territorial spirit of religion over this area of Pennsylvania. It hindered true worship. But as we pressed in and worshipped God the Lord tied this principality up and a great release of the Sprit came. There was a complete change in the atmosphere and the Lord allowed me to see what was taking place in the Spirit. What a powerful anointing the Lord poured out after that.

Matt, I have heard nothing but praise reports of your ministry. The youth just went to your conference and came back more in love with Jesus. The Lord is using you in an awesome way!
May 30, 2003
We had several kids go to the rally that are not regularly involved in the youth group. One sixteen year old guy went that just started coming to the church with his family about a year ago. He's really into emo music (emotional stuff) with his band and wears black fingernail polish, etc, etc, and I know he was feeling a little out of place amongst the other "youth group kids" (unfortunately). He got saved about six months ago and usually sits in the back with headphones on during the worship. I went to church the Sunday after the rally and happened to look back where he usually sits. Lo and behold, there he was, arms raised, worshipping Jesus! SO POWERFUL! I was thinking to myself, something's going on here! I talked to him after the service--Matt, there is a such a difference in him! Jesus is burning in his eyes! He told me that when he first got to the rally and they played the first song, he was like, This is really not my thing. Then, apparently, the guitarist started wailing on the guitar and was getting really into it, so this guy gets up and starts praising Jesus. These are his words. Hahaha! I was getting such a kick! He went up for prayer and said that as soon as you (Matt) put your hand on him, his tongue started tickling (hahaHAAAAAAAAA!). He said, "I said, 'God, I'm at Your mercy.'" (WHOOOOOO!!!) Right when he said that, he fell down and started shaking all over the place (his words). That was his first time ever experiencing the power of God in his life like that. I talked to him and his sister also about the supernatural meeting the natural and how all of us have the Holy Spirit living inside of us with power! We talked about the power of our prayers and that when we lay hands on people, we impart the Holy Spirit! So he got all excited and said, "I want to do that!" SOOOO POWERFUL! Isn't Jesus WONDERFUL!!!
May 30, 2003
I have been on fire since that meeting! My heart has really been pliable. My worship to God has been more intense and more heart felt. The Lord really showed up that night!
It’s Raining Here
Feb 8, 2003
The meeting on Saturday was so awesome. What a blessing...what a move of God. I was so glad to be there. I have to tell you, all through the meeting I kept feeling something which at first I thought were drops of water coming from a leak in the pipes above my head. I kept looking around to see if anyone else was feeling this and it seemed like it was just me. I kept feeling drops of water on my head, my face and on my arms. I kept brushing it off until I realized that there was no leak but this was the rain of the Lord...the anointing... As I was worshipping I was also released from a tremendous burden that I have been carrying for the past several months....a real biggie. I have been released, Matt!! My mind and my heart are at peace. I am overwhelmed by the grace of the God.
