M16 - Farewell Sweet 2014



As 2014 comes to a close this week I would like to share with you some of the incredible ways God has been using us in ministry. The first 21 days of the New Year, Lisa and I like going on a Daniel Fast to listen for direction from God. In January we also were invited to go speak at Bethel Church, for Bob and Kimberly Johnson ministries, where I spoke on two of my favorite topics, Mystical Theology, and Spiritual Warfare. This was an exciting time and it was a lot of fun.

January pretty much flew by, no sooner than Lisa and I had finished our Daniel Fast, we were given the first house haunting case for the New Year. As most of you already know, M16 Ministries is not strictly a spiritual warfare ministry, we also lead homeless ministry in San Francisco, with Night Strike, and we also equip and lead people into prophetic ministry venues not readily accessible to the average Christian believer.

Night Strike

Night Strike is our street ministry, occurring every second Friday of the month, to the homeless, drug addicts, and prostitutes in San Francisco. Many neighborhoods we go into are notorious for being dangerous, such as the Tenderloin. Night Strike is about bringing heavenly encounters to the people we meet on the streets. We hand out socks, food, and articles of clothing, but we are more concerned with meeting their spiritual needs as well. In 2014, Night Strike, re-opened its reach in ministry to neighborhoods in the Mission District and the Haight. It felt good to return to these neighborhoods and resume ministry.

We have had the pleasure of students from a middle school, where one of our NS leaders teaches, prepare the food and encouraging notes for the people we minister to. One memorable night was Valentine’s Day on the streets in San Francisco, where a homeless man read a Valentine from one of the students, and this man just wept as he read the note. It opened for a powerful encounter where our leaders, in fact one leader was the student’s teacher who wrote the note, could minister to the man. It’s amazing how powerful the notes from these students were and how they opened people up for ministry.



Night Strike has always been instrumental in equipping other ministers for going out on the streets. For many ministers it’s their first chance to learn and move in prophetic ministry. We have also had our share of spiritual warfare on the streets too. Our ministers have been instrumental in equipping and teaching ministers from larger organizations on how to deal with the spirits on the streets. .
One memorable night was when Night Strike team returned to the Haight for ministry. A homeless couple, Bridgett and Sam, were traveling the world because Bridgett was given time to live of one month from a terminal brain tumor. Our team was able to minister with Bridgett. Although healing didn’t come was we prayed for it. The encounter was very powerful to Bridgett as she was extremely appreciative we had stopped to minister with her.

Night Strike has been filled with lots of encounters with the Holy Ghost. Come on out and join us. Dates and times are posted on Facebook. Night Strike falls on the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month.

Covert Prophetic Ministry

Night Strike has been instrumental in raising up prophetic seers, healers, and spiritual warfare ministers. For the past year, M16 Ministries has been grooming and training Night Strike leaders to minister in prophetic venues. These are venues where the minister must bring light into darkness, and this is something not everyone has been called to do. We discovered it takes a special person to be able to do this. Our prophetic team has ministered at New Age expos, street fairs, and even pagan festivals. In 2015, the plan is to take the prophetic ministry team to Burning Man. Yes, Night Strike is going to Burning Man! Our ministry team is pretty groomed now in ministering in these environments and we’re really excited about our spiritual adventure in August. We also have a paranormal conference on the radar too where we plan to go minister at.

Please check our video of a woman who received a healing in hearing at one of our events.

Benevolence, Bibles, and Water Filters

2014 was an interesting year for ministry in missions. The funding was available to do some exciting missions, but God sent me – no where! Oh, I made some exciting recommendations to Him on where He should send me. I just wasn’t sent! My rule of thumb is that I must be sent somewhere I just don’t pick a place and go!

Instead, I became a FedEx missionary. What is that? That’s where you carry on mini-mission trips by sending items instead of yourself. It started in 2013, when Pastor John and Pastor Rachel, in Pakistan, reached out to me on Facebook for assistance with replacing Bibles in a town, where Christians were
persecuted and their Bibles were burned. Many of you answered the call and we were able to assist in replacing bibles. The people who received these Bibles only make $.02 a day. A Bible costs $6. It was impossible to send that many Bibles to Pakistan, it was cheaper to use other means. Such as Western Union. In 2014, a flood devastated part of their village and orphanage. With floods comes sickness and death. I was able to FedEx out some of my Sawyer Water filters to the Pastors. The cost of shipping 5 small filters would be about $15 US dollars if I shipped them to Florida. But to ship to Pakistan it was well over 10 times that amount!

Pastor John and Rachel are a powerful arm of God in kingdom building in Pakistan. They are amazing and they also run an orphanage! Please keep them in your prayers.


2014 I also shipped Sawyer Water filters to my good friend, Bishop Rodwell Mclean, of Rhema Cornerstone Church, in Guyana South America. He gave them out to pastors in Jonestown Guyana, where the notorious Jim Jones People’s Temple Massacre occurred. I thought it was prophetic that life giving water filters were sent from the same city that once sent a horrible tragedy and curse to Jonestown. One day I would love to return to Georgetown and visit Bishop Rodwell and Grace.

 This year also marked a time when I saw a lot of ministers devastated by the down turn of the economy. M16 Ministries operated in benevolence to assist these men and women of God. These ministers are involved in high level warfare and intercession and we couldn't stand there and watch the enemy take everything from them like locusts raiding a crop. This was the first year we operated with a benevolence gift. I pray it is the last and break through comes to these ministers.

Spiritual Warfare and Inner Healing

M16 Ministries is a major presence in spiritual warfare. The ministry now works regularly with six women who have dissociated identity disorder. These women are all survivors of long-term trauma, abuse, sexual abuse, mind control, and ritual abuse. Most of my ministry time now is focused on only cases that require ministry beyond the capability of the church in spiritual warfare. I work full time at my day job, and afterwards, four nights a week, I minister with these incredible women. Each of them is walking through their own long term healing with Jesus Christ.

2014 marks a significant year where M16 was able to network with other ministries like ours in helping others with dark issues in spiritual warfare. This has become a turning point in a large battle where the spotlight is returning to the church as having the ability to deal with hauntings and possessions. The common message underlying all paranormal shows is that Jesus can’t clean out a haunted house, you need a psychic. This table has turned in 2014, and it’s thanks to some very dedicated ministers that M16 is now in line with. This year M16, through connections with other Christian ministries was able to rid some high profile cases presented on TV as unsolvable by ghost hunters and psychics, cleaned up through Christian ministers.

This was the year I also reached out to some of the home owners in the Travel Channel’s The Dead Files Show and sent them copies of A Field Guide to Spiritual Warfare. In some cases it was well received and in other cases no response what so ever. The paranormal field doesn’t want to embrace the possibility that God is real, and through some of the ministries M16 is networked with – they are going to have to embrace the facts as they start coming out!

In all, 2014 was a very intense year in warfare. There are some chapters here I am glad to see closed. But with each battle you can only grow deeper in God. Seems like the darker you go – the deeper you go. Not a fun trip to be on. But it’s always amazing to see the Glory of God!

 

What's in Store for 2015?

I am really excited that God is already paving the road for  2015. In spring I have two speaking engagements on the calendar. One in February, and the other in March at the Bay Area Sunday School Conference. With that I will also be planning out the logistics to get our ministry team to Burning Man!

Needs

The ministry has some needs going into 2015. The prophetic ministry events are always expensive. We have one event in April fully paid for – it was $2K. These events aren’t cheap but the outcomes are priceless. There are several events on the calendar for 2015, on event is $1K, and another event is $500. This isn’t counting Burning Man. We will require an estimated $3K for this event. Also, if anyone has an RV we can borrow or rent, let us know too. Water Filters $45 each need at least 10 for starters to help my fellow pastors.

Pastor John and Rachel need clothes for their orphans, and money for Bibles. If you feel called to assist, I can make sure the funds get to their hands. They are at the forefront of spiritual warfare, please keep this family in your prayers. The work they are doing is world changing and kingdom expanding. 

In every step of ministry, it has always been God who has made provision, and God who has opened doors for us. Please pray for us for provision and open doors. Most of all that this ministry stays in step and follows the will of the Heavenly Father.

Have a blessed and safe New Year!

Night Strike Supernatural Ministry Friday November 28 2014

We had an incredible night in ministry on Friday evening, November 28, 2014, it was the night immediately after Thanksgiving. Angela met up with Lisa and I as we did an impromptu Night Strike in the TL. As we drove into the city across the bay bridge I commented on what a beautiful evening this was turning out to be. Not a cloud in the sky, no fog. From the bay bridge we could clearly see the lights of the Golden Gate bridge, yes, it was one of those unusually clear and beautiful nights in the city.

As we pulled into the parking area on Fulton, it was immediately clear there were an unusually high number of homeless people out on the streets this evening. Once we parked the car, we made our way over to the traditional meeting area of the horse statute with our bags of items to distribute to the people there. Along the wall of the Asian art museum, there were a lot of people bedding down for the night.

We hung around the statue for about 20 minutes until the area died down from activity and people coming to us. We packed up the tuna fish sandwiches, the drinks, the chips, and the socks, and made our way to the doorways and sidewalks to where the people were camping for the night. Remember that beautiful, clear night I mentioned as we drove into the city? Well, the city is fickle, a light mist started falling on us. Then the mist started getting a little more mistier.. if you know what I mean.

At one of our first stops, I noticed an elderly woman with a cane, trying to descend down into the BART station. The up escalator was working, and the down escalator was closed off for maintenance. I engaged in simple conversation with this woman, and she greeted me and said her name Pastor Kelly. I immediately responded I am Pastor Mike. Her face lit up, and Lisa responded with a handshake, I am Pastor Lisa. She just smiled and we started off on a great encounter and meeting with a local street minister.

As we were talking, there were a couple of spirits of distraction that approached us. Pastor Kelly was kind of puzzled at first at how we handled them. It is our approach that even though the enemy sends in a spirit of distraction, that we allow the operation to back fire and we let the Holy Ghost minister to that person. Everyone is born with a Holy Ghost homing beacon. That’s what I call it, so even if a person on the streets is darkly oppressed, or even possessed, the spirits will lead them over to us to distract or run us off. You know how some Christians are on a sidewalk with a bullhorn and are extremely annoying and shouting peoples sins out? This is like the demonic version of that, only we let them make a pass or two, and then we have noticed the Holy Ghost tracking beacon, which is what I call it, will kick in, and the person inside will surface and speak with you. More on this in a moment. I just wanted to make the point that Night Strike team members are on the streets to bring light into darkness and not everyone understands this. So when we were allowing the oppressed and possessed to have our attention. Pastor Kelly was completely confused. She started quoting scripture on how we shouldn’t allow them to have counsel with us. I told her it was alright, “we’re bringing light into darkness. That’s why we’re out here tonight.”

Pastor Kelly thought we were new and naive to street ministry. I told her Night Strike has been on the streets since 1999. We are completely aware of the dangers on the streets. Pastor Kelly decided to walk with us, she didn’t like the idea that oppressed people were joining us as we strolled down the sidewalks of the TL and ministered. I had to keep re-assuring her that this is what Night Strike does. It wasn’t far in our walk with her that a possessed man showed up on the streets. He came towards us walking and carrying on a conversation with an invisible person. He showed up on my discernment radar from a far. I looked down the sidewalk and in a demonic reverse discernment he saw me. He stopped talking to his invisible friend, and diverted his attention to the pavement. He passed by me at a quick pace, and never took his eyes off the sidewalk. As he passed me I offered him a tuna fish sandwich. He pretended like he didn’t hear me and he kept walking away from me as fast as he could. I already started reaching for his sandwich in my bag. I was now counting on his Holy Ghost beacon to kick on. Sure enough, about 30 feet away from me, he turned around and shouted out to me to identify myself or something like that. It was a weird request. I slowly started walking towards him. Pastor Kelly stopped me and explained to me that she had dead on spiritual discernment and that I shouldn’t talk to that man, he was clearly demonized. I told Pastor Kelly it was ok, I am Pastor that understands battles with darkness that is why I am out here on the streets. Our mission tonight is to bring light into darkness. Pastor Kelly was awesome, and she was dead on, I think she was completely puzzled to see that we minister to the demonized. I walked over to the man who had initially passed up the sandwich. I approached him with a smile, holding out a tuna fish sandwich to him. He made some bizarre statement, “I demand a database query.” Initially, I thought, "what?", but it is encounters like this I let the Holy Ghost handle. Once more, he looked me in the eye, and he asked, “I request a query of you.” My response was, “I will provide you no such query. Scan me and you will know what I am.” Yes. It was a weird conversation. But you let the Holy Spirit dial in on the madness and demonic dialect to cut pass the spiritual madness. The man stopped for a minute and responded, “You are not one of us.” I responded, “that is correct”. He got mad and bolted off. He went about 10 feet and then he stopped and turned around. The Holy Ghost beacon kicked in again. He came back and talked to me in his weird computer dialect jibberish. But we were having a conversation through the Holy Spirit and he was now walking with me. He took some food and now we had an oppressed man and a possessed man walking with us. Pastor Kelly’s discernment was going bonkers. She wanted us to get rid of these people. I told her I wouldn’t, they were getting touched by Jesus right now. It didn’t seem like it, but in all them their madness and addictions had now shut off in their walk with us to engage in the humanity of Jesus Christ. Pastor Kelly again pleaded with me. She thought we were nuts. She had every right to be. A lot of Christians come into the TL from outside the city and are completely oblivious to the dangers both physical and spiritual, that are present on these streets. Pastor Kelly I know had every right to be pleading with us. We have seen the naivety of other ministries coming out and not understanding the spiritual regions of this city. I finally had to breakdown and explain to Pastor Kelly, that what we were doing is all right. She again told me about her dead on discernment. And she was dead on. It was then that I told her that I was an exorcist. That I work with these people and that I can see what she is seeing. Our job was to come out and let the heavenly Father break through the demonic and love on these oppressed children of God. It was then that Pastor Kelly shared with me her experience as a little girl, growing up in a state run hotel, there in the TL where she developed her discernment. The room she grew up in had demonic activity. She could hear a little girl singing at night and it would frighten her. She said, then one night she mustered enough strength to peek out of her covers to see what was singing. She said she saw little girl by her bedside with dark black eyes. She said for months she prayed for it to go away. And during this time she woke up in the morning with scratches and bruises. But it finally left through prayer. I clearly understood now where Pastor Kelly was coming from. And I could understand why there was some trepidation in what we were doing. At the end of the evening I still believe Pastor Kelly thought we were insane for what we do. But that is the mission of Night Strike – to bring light into darkness. Not all Night Strikes are like this one. We don’t go looking for the demonized. We go out attentive to the will of the heavenly Father. If He arranges a divine meeting with one of His tormented children we will follow His will and receive the individual with open arms. This is bringing the humanity of Jesus Christ and the victory of the cross into darkness. Giving people lots of time to choose the cross is called process evangelism. Even the demonized wake up. They have to be shown the reality of the truth of Jesus Christ to battle their own demonic lies. I truly believe we were out on the streets for a Holy Ghost encounter with our new pastor friend. To demonstrate the higher authority on the streets will protect her from the spiritual activity she walks through on a daily basis. She is a strong woman of God and a powerful evangelist. I think God had to show her there is still an underlying spirit of fear from the evil spirit that manifested in front of her as a child.

 And yes, on our walk, we all did get a little wet on our Night Strike.

God Bless

Cleansing Streams Autumn 2014

Cleansing Stream :: A Journey of Discovery

Katheline Monnier and I will be teaching another session of Cleansing Streams at Valley Christian Center Church in Dublin, this autumn.

We are to love God with all our heart and all our mind and all our strength.

Sometimes in life the enemy can put us through trials and even life traumas that prevent us from going to our heavenly Father with all our heart and all our strength. Let’s face it we’ve all been beaten down at sometime in our lives. Whether you're wanting to learn how to partner with Jesus in healing your own broken heart and being set free, or acquiring the tools and guidance to equip yourself to heal the broken hearted and set others free, Cleaning Stream is the course to start your journey.

In this class you will learn how to develop a deeper relationship with your heavenly Father and The Holy Spirit. You will learn how to commit your life to God, even in the midst of seemingly unbeatable trials. You will learn how to stand in your own spiritual authority against spirits, as the 70 disciples in Luke 10 did. You will be given the tools to Speak Words of Life into those around you and how to remove the painful “word curses” that have been spoken over you. You will learn how to bless your home and cleanse your house that has been tainted by the enemy.

Come to a safe place where you will be set free from fears and curses that have inhibited your walk with Jesus Christ. This class is life changing and one of the most powerful and memorable courses to those who have taken this journey. Come to get set free, Come to learn how to set others free.

The classes will culminate in a one day Retreat hosted by Valley Christian Center on Nov 1st, 2014

M16 Ministries News and Updates for May 2014

I can't believe June is almost here. Where did the first couple of months of 2014 go? We're a small but very busy ministry. As most of you know, I have been pulled in from my old career for full time ministry. That cut my ministry team in half, Lisa is working 3 jobs now to keep the finances in the black for our household. A lot of my ministry has been solo, hopefully only for the time being, until we can work out this Holy re-org with finances no longer coming in as they once did in the software engineering career.

Needless to say, I have been very busy and haven't really had time to produce a newsletter. I have broken down our activities in the following sections.

Night Strike 

For everyone who has come out and supported Night Strike ministry - BLESSINGS to you! It's an incredible ministry that goes out on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of every month and we minister to the homeless, drug addicts, and prostitutes on the streets of San Francisco. We work around, but are not limited to, the Tenderloin area and the civic center area of San Francisco. Night Strike has an operating cost of about $400 per month in supplies. We have a church that has graciously taken us on as an urban mission and provide a steady monthly provision for 1/8 the cost of Night Strike. What we give out on Night Strike goes beyond the food and supplies. Many people on the streets receive prophetic words and some receive healing. For others its just nice for a change, for a person to stop and have conversation with someone. We have encountered spiritual activity on Night Strike as well and have worked with that when it arises. The most important thing our team delivers to the streets is the heavenly Fathers love to a person who has deemed themselves to be worthless. Which is a lie from the enemy. We encourage you to come out to a Night Strike with us. If you're a church that supports urban missions we would love to speak with you. We are in need of churches, people and institutions that want to give financially or participate. Again, come on out to the streets with us and see the Father's love in action.

Night Strike is a blast! No matter how much warfare I experience during the week, Night Strike ministry pulls me right out of it. It is an awesome evening of supernatural ministry and anything can happen on the streets - and usually does!

Equipping

 

M16 Ministries' major charter is equipping. We know we're way out there with some of the things we do and our hearts are for empowering others in the body of Christ for ministry too. In January, I spoke at a seminar in Redding, Ca, for Bob and Kimberly Johnson ministries, on Advance Spiritual Warfare. Our ministry noticed there is a huge chasm between what the church has traditionally come to believe to be deliverance and exorcism. In our equipping class, I explain the difference between, deliverance, the casting out of low level demons, and exorcism, battles with angelic beings.

In April. M16 Ministries equipped ministers to go into New Age and psychic fairs to minister. There is a special white gloves approach of ministering in these venues to build relationships with these people. We train ministers for these venues at our equipping classes. These are the people we take on our outreaches.

Prophetic Ministry Outreaches


These are covert outreaches. We never advertise where we are at or where we are going. In some places we have an established set of guests who come looking for us for ministry. At these events, we give the heavenly Father's guests a first hand taste of a spiritual encounter. At the last outreach, we had 250 non-Christians come to our booth and get ministered to. Out of those, we saw incredible healings, 4 people received hearing back in deaf ears. Some people received healing from back pain, we had one person have their nodes in their throat dissolve. One woman had a full on encounter with Jesus, who presented himself as a lamb. There was one man with dissociative identity disorder who had a little boy part healed by Jesus. So there are a lot of things going on at these outreaches. I only recruit people for these outreaches from Night Strike ministry. So if you want to be involved in something like this I need to know who you are -by regularly attending Night Strike.

The last outreach we made enough money on tips to be sent to our next covert destination. However, our money for outreaches is now exhausted for the year. And these encounters are extremely important!

Spiritual Warfare


One of M16 Ministries primary charters is dealing with intense spiritual warfare. These are cases that fall in areas where the basic church understanding of deliverance fails or is too dangerous for the pastoral staff to be involved in. By this I mean the occult and battles outside the jurisdiction of our spiritual authority. We have a lot of cases we work through each year and it's tough to respond to all of them. We're special ops so we select the cases that require special ops ministers. This wing of the ministry which is pretty intensive and is not funded at all. Most people come to us believing we are part of a large church ministry. We have a church covering, but we are not funded nor belong to a large church ministry.

We started out with a lot of deliverance ministry, recently with the church starting to embrace deliverance, with wonderful programs like Cleansing Streams, I am diverting people in that direction. Getting educated in basic deliverance and learning to walk in your own authority helps people stay cleaned up. I still volunteer as a Cleansing Streams minister.

In this capacity, I still operate as an exorcist. We get lots of requests for exorcisms, but I filter through the requests and try to determine which is applicable. I usually don't respond to requests for exorcisms unless some sort of medical proof is provided that experiences are not natural and an expert believes the cause is beyond physical resolution. I am the biggest skeptic when people approach me about having a demon. I want 100% proof before I consider working with them in the direction of exorcism.

Training


If you're church would like training in spiritual warfare, deliverance, advance spiritual warfare, or prophetic outreach ministry, send an e-mail to me and we'll coordinate times. Summer is coming quickly. Let's book something on the calendar!

As for our own personal training, I need to work with others out of state for furthering my development in ministry. Either go back to CARE, Restoration in Christ Ministries, or pursue an advance Heart Sync class. The funding is zero here. May not happen this year.

I always believe in working side by side with the best of the best. Last year, I had the privilege to work alongside CARE, in Baldwin Michigan. Learning how to heal women from ritual abuse and mind control.

Prayer Ministry

 

Most of my ministry time these days is focused on prayer ministry with dissociate identity disorder (DID), from long term severe childhood trauma, or ritual abuse (RA). I work in the capacity as prayer minister with parts, work with de-programming parts from mind control, and help heal parts to make them whole through the ministry of Jesus Christ. Under this capacity, I also work as a spiritual director, working with numerous parts in one person, to lead them to Jesus, or to work with them where they're at in their own prayer development. Many identities in one person can have numerous states of interior prayer life development. This work is intensive, a lot of these parts are volatile. This ministry is very long term pastoral care. Many churches miss the mark in believing basic deliverance will help these people living in this torment and this is an inaccurate notion on the church's part. Some women I have worked with were thrown out by their pastors because they tried to use deliverance on a human part and it wouldn't work. This ministry is not limited to ritual abuse survivors. I am also working with young women who survived the foster care system and we raped repeatedly there. This is one ministry component I wish I could win the lottery on. There is little, to no funding.

Also, in this ministry, we are in intense warfare. The enemy doesn't like us removing women off of his altars. The warfare in this ministry is insanely intense. INTENSE!!! The enemy loves destroying finances to all the ministries involved here.

DID RA ministry requires meeting once a week, where a lot of inner healing occurs, but healing form DID can takes months to years. If anyone knows how to fund or bring in a grant, or a financial scholarship donation for these women - Would love to speak with you.


So now you know how busy we have been, Whew!!! Thank you so much for participating with us. We're small, experiencing tremendous growing pains and we could really use your prayers.


Also, please help support our ministry!!! ©2014 Michael J. Norton

Night Strike Supernatural Ministry Friday May 9 2014

Night Strike Recap for Friday May 09 2014

Sometimes I wish I could go out more often on the streets and help serve these incredible people. It was another phenomenal night on the streets. The ferocious May winds were causing a horrible chill. Yes, the worst time to be in San Francisco is in May. Market Street was a wind tunnel. Some of our friends who endure the rain were already packing up and seeking shelter from the piercing wind. It was cold!

We had a great time on the streets ministering to the people. One gentleman, Bob, who found the M16 Ministries web site, brave the winds to come meet us at the plaza and find out what we're all about.

Rick and Rich, along with my son, Josh, and a woman, I believe her name was Kate, set off for the Tenderloin. Brian, Mary, Lori (Happy Birthday!!), Mike, and Missty, went down Market St. I took a team, Dennis, Michelle, Dale, Cindy, and Bob went over to the Bill Graham. We encountered lots of people on the streets. Some more clever and fortunate individuals were setting up tents under the shelter of the Bill Graham building.

During the evening, while our team was ministering, we came across a woman sitting over a heater vent above an underground parking structure. She had a sweatshirt and a sheet wrapped around her and that's all she had. It's not protection at all from the wind that was out there. I started speaking with her and I noticed right away she had dissociative identity disorder. The part that was present I prayed with using the word, Her Creator, instead of God. Not knowing what her spiritual background was. She made sign of the cross with her hands, and then kissed her hands like she was holding a rosary in it. Right away, I was able to pray in Jesus name with her. The identity that protects her went down inside and I was able to speak to the woman. I offered her my jacket since she was in way unprepared to endure the cold wind all night. Well, there goes my heavy Night Strike jacket! It was completely blessed so I know it will be juiced up enough to keep her warm through the night.

On our way back to the UN Plaza we made one stop and it was a divine appointment. It turned out to be a spiritual warfare training lab for the team. We came across another woman lying on an exhaust vent. I knelt down and asked if I could pray with her. She said yes and informed me she was having seizures. She said she didn't want to go to the hospital she wanted to stay right where she was at. I started praying for her seizures to stop. As I did this, another woman lying next to her started spouting of obscenities at us. Pretty much was a demon with emphasis on explicit adjectives to the Christian names. She got louder as I quietly prayed over the woman for the seizures to stop. The woman with the seizures started spouting some foul stuff too but the spirits in her subsided as I prayed over her (see Mark 9:14-29). The woman was totally relaxed and the seizures stopped when we were through praying for her.

Dennis, at the same spot, was praying for a gentleman named Russ (Raus?). Russ had respiratory issues. Dennis and I prayed quietly for Russ, then the loud vile woman started piping in again. As we prayed, I quietly whispered, "In the name of Jesus Christ I bind that spirit to shut up." Completely out of ear reach or decibel range. At that exact moment, the woman, shut up, if not in mid sentence, of whatever it was she was spewing forth in vocabulary. And we finished praying for Russ. We don't know if Russ was healed, but he did say he could breath better.

Like I said it was a really awesome lab night in spiritual warfare for warriors to learn their authority first hand. We never know what kind of night we step into until we show up on the scene for a Night Strike.

Added: Brian's Team update

What a night to night with night strike. Ran into a demon possessed guy I'd seen another time was a little less high on drugs this time started talking about how he sees demons. Tried doing some deliverance but he was not willing... will hit him again. 

Ran into another young guy, OMG ,asked what church I went to... grew up in the area Vacaville new of the mission and the father's house and had read some of Graham Cooks books, started telling me he was a prophet...had been to bethal... touched by the holy spirit at one point. Was in a rough spot due to sin and drugs... told us about his Angel... OMG laid hands on him did some deliverance called his prophetic Calling forth and slammed him with the fire of toungs... first the demons came out, then he got healing, then he's shaking and laughing under the power of the holy spirit. Whoa whoa whoa Awesome. 


Then Prophisied to his calling in the kingdom. Majorly impacted him with heavens mandate. Jesus!

Added note that night I had a real powerful dream, probably second most in my life to date! In regards to the first demon possessed guy. Jesus Is King.

This is what we do and why I love walking in power.

Pray for Joseph!

Night Strike Supernatural Ministry Friday March 14 2014

Night Strike recap Friday March 14, 2014

What a Difference Worship Makes!

It's great to have a worship team back out with us on Night Strike. We see lot's of miracles and life impacting touches from the heavenly Father when we're out on the streets. But when you add a worship team to the mix and keep an open heaven - we see so much more going on in the street ministry. David and Josette Brown actually started leading worship two weeks ago on a wet rainy Night Strike. Last night it was a gorgeous night in the city. The worship music was well received. We had homeless and people just walking by, stop and sit at the pedestal of the statue and and enjoy the worship music.
For those of you old Night Strikers, you know the leadership position changes when you have a worship team and you now need to stay back at the plaza to be the bouncer for them. It's San Francisco anything can happen.

We had all sorts of people come by us and some even stayed. Some people tipped the worship team - Jesus was reimbursing the bridge toll. :)  And we had a few people with spirits in them come by. I call it their Holy Spirit tracking beacon, those with spirits will come by to get soothed by the music. We had a few of those, and I had to minister and bounce simultaneously. Which means I ran interference and sill made sure they were touched by their heavenly Father.

Spiritual promotion! Being pulled off the team leader duty allowed other team leaders to step up in their ministry. While I was at the plaza it put me in a new position where I could be an intercessor and work in unity with the worship team.

I received a txt from Mary, one of our team leaders, that they were dealing with a spirit with one of the people they encountered in a homeless camp in front of the SF Civic Center. I responded to the txt with some training pointers and let them pray with live ammo. In the plaza the worship team kept an open heaven and did our intercession for the team working with the spirit over near the Civic Center.

It was awesome to have the worship team out. When I got the txt from Mary I knew we had a shift in the heavenly realm and God was training his disciples on the streets. Which is how I learned. BTW. If you e-mail me for training on deliverance I will reply ....come out to Night Strike. Night Strike is God's night time special forces in the city, it's God's training hospital, it's God's training for prophets, and it's God's training for supernatural ministry. You can read lot's of books and take lot's of classes --but supernatural ministry is caught and not taught. You need to go out and lay hands on some one! But ask for their permission first!!

Next Night Strike Friday March 28, 2014

M16 Ministries Belated Farewell to 2013

M16 Ministries – Where We’ve Been in 13 and Where We’re Going in 14 


I know it’s February 2014 and here I am finally getting back to what happened in 2013. In my perspective, 2013 was a whirlwind adventure for M16 Ministries. We equipped churches in prophetic street ministry and deliverance. We hosted extreme prophetic ministry outreaches at street fairs and New Age psychic expos. We look for venues that are crying out spiritually. I don’t disclose where we go. But it’s off the hook ministry.

Why do we go to these places?

It takes a special ministry team and God wants to show these people how much He loves them. When we come in the love of the Father we are embraced by the people at these events. They are in turn deeply impacted by the words and destiny spoken over them. IT’s been a long relationship and trust building journey. At these venues, God spoke to around 300 or more people in our encounters booths.

Validation from God at a psychic expo



As many of you know Rev. Lisa and I do minister at Burning Man. We have been a part a lot of incredible miracles and powerful encounters with God –of all places, Burning Man! Yes, God shows up wherever he is invited.

Our team was featured on a Canadian Christian television program called Context.



Burning Man is not an event for everyone to minister at. It’s a pagan festival and there is a spiritual atmosphere and presence there. I will use that disclaimer. Every person who came in for an encounter received a powerful blessing and the love of the heavenly Father.

In 2014, we have several venues planned, but they require funding. If you would like to partner with us we are a 501c3 non-profit.

Night Strike

If you’ve never been on a Night Strike, what are you waiting for? Checkout our Facebook page on where we meet and what to bring out with you.

Facebook Night Strike SF

Night Strike has a rich history in bringing the love of Jesus Christ into the darkest neighborhoods of the city of San Francisco. Every 2nd and 4th Friday night of the month (except November and December we meet the 1st and 3rd Friday) the Night Strike prophetic and service evangelistic street ministry teams takes to the streets to bring the love of the heavenly Father to the people of San Francisco. Night Strike team members minister to the poor, the homeless, drug addicts and prostitutes we encounter on the streets on Friday nights. Many Night Strike participants are hooked on this ministry from their very first time of participating.

Spiritual Freedom Ministry

M16 Ministries has probably ministered to well over a thousand people now since we started back in 2009. Unofficially, we go back to 2007. Since then we have been flooded with requests for spiritual freedom ministry. Our criteria for ministry is to take on only cases where the individuals in torment have nowhere else to turn. These include extreme deliverance, and hauntings, or cases requiring exorcism.  At the same time we offered help to minor cases of spiritual bondage through Cleansing Streams classes. As you can see, we had to triage and minister where we could. We couldn’t get to everybody. We also referred people to local sozo and deliverance teams depending on the spiritual needs.

For the past two years, prayer ministry has become a full time position for me. This means Lisa, my ministry team partner, had to take up the slack financially for the family and take on 3 jobs to keep this ministry going. The spiritual warfare arm of M16 Ministries is not financially supported by any church, grants, or charitable organization. It is the most requested and demanding charter of the ministry. In 2013, we offered free prayer ministry to all who came for help in deliverance. We ministered to well over a thousand people since we started in 2007. Because our model of having Rev. Lisa work and no other source of income we have had to change our position in 2014. We are going to charge for deliverance ministry to keep the organization alive and the ministry to be self-sustaining.  This came to us at great pain, we loved the model of freely give and freely receive. But the ministry would disappear altogether if we didn’t start charging for prayer ministry service. I researched local sozo and deliverance ministry teams and priced our prayer sessions to within the going rates. Again it’s not a greed thing. It’s all about keeping the electrical power on at home and relieving the stress on Rev. Lisa working a ton of jobs.  We became an organization begging for money to help others. While people were receiving freedom at no cost to them, we were financially bleeding. Hope you can see the trade offs and why we moved to charging for this ministry in 2014.

Prayer Ministry to Survivors of Severe Trauma and Abuse

Two years ago we slowly entered into ministering to survivors of severe trauma.  This ministry has started to ramp up too. These traumas include, sexual abuse, spiritual and ritual abuse, and mind control. Back in July of 2013, I spent two weeks as an intern at CARE in Michigan to receive training for prayer ministry to survivors of Satanic ritual abuse and mind control involving demonic strongholds. Through prayer ministry we have seen fractured souls re-integrate and people being made whole through the ministry of Jesus Christ. Some of these individuals we meet with once or twice a week for up to 2 or more hours per session.

In 2014, we are seeing a lot of movement in the survivors healing ministry.
I spoke for the first time on survivor prayer ministry back in January of 2014. There is momentum and interest in what we are doing in Christian counseling and prayer ministry for severe trauma.

Spring is a busy time for our extreme prophetic ministry. We have purchased our booth spot for one large venue in the Bay area. We are also praying for funding for two other venues. We will need about $1000 to reach that goal. Burning Man 2014 we are praying for this year. We need $3000 to return to Burning Man. The funds aren’t there and we’re praying for them to manifest. In the mix of all this we are still offering prayer ministry in deliverance and inner healing. We thank you for being a supporter of M16 Ministries.  Thank you for partnering and praying for us. If you feel on your heart to contribute many people would be blessed.

Help us to reach others or sponsor a prayer session for someone.

That was a lot to pack into a blog. I wanted you see that we've been busy.

Be blessed!

Spiritual Warfare and Mystical Theology - Inner Castle Sixth Dwelling Places

The following is a video segment from the Friday January 17 Equipping for Spiritual Warfare sessions that were held in Redding, Ca through Bob and Kimberly Johnson Ministries.

The video and audio aren't so great on this. I record sessions on my iphone to review for what I need do better in future talks. So this is M16 Ministries raw and unplugged - so to speak.

It was a 2 day seminar on spiritual warfare. On Friday evening I spoke extensively on the subject of mystical theology and Saint Teresa of Avila's Interior Castle. Here is a segment on the Sixth dwelling places and how I tie the states of mystical theology back into states of torment used by the enemy. I share stories from M16 Ministries past warfare experiences in these as well.

Enjoy!

Enjoy!
