Hungry to Experience His Power – Denis Kozlov

15 September 2015 No Comment

miracles2I am hungry to see American and Russian believers learn how to operate under the same anointing as Jesus! Acts 10:28 says “God anointed Jesus of  Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”

His Please, understand that Jesus performed all those miracles and did all those great things like healing people and casting out demons as a man! As a real man, just like you and me. A man who was anointed by God. Part of the good news of the Gospel is that after we are born again, we can learn to live and minister like Jesus. We grow and learn to operate under the same anointing, allowing the victory that He has won into every area of our lives.

I have seen several real miracles happen in my life, almost by accident. I am not talking about just getting a prayer answered in a natural way (like getting cured by a doctor’s treatment). I am talking about real miracles that defy natural laws and processes. I saw deaf ears opened when I prayed for one lady who was almost 100% deaf.

Another time I remember praying for an elderly lady severely afflicted by arthritis to an extent that she could not raise her feet more than a few inches off the ground and was unable to climb any stairs. A few minutes after I prayed for her she could freely move again with no pain and with no limitations and climbed stairs with ease. She was radiant with joy.

Unfortunately I have seen very few cases like that in my own life, and I understand that if I take the Bible seriously, this should be happening regularly in my life. But I believe that the good news is that we can change it and learn to live and minister to people in a way that the book of Acts describes.

Many pastors in Russia and in the US seek the Lord for ways to experience God’s power through the preaching of the Gospel and to equip their church members to learn how to step into this supernatural lifestyle. When people witness about Christ in their daily life and take a risk to pray for signs and wonders, miracles will start happening.

In recent decades the Lord has stirred the hearts of many Christians to look for this  reality and as a result, many churches in the US have moved forward in this uncharted territory. Some churches have opened schools to help everyday people change their thinking and walk more in line with the gospels and the book of Acts.

I personally am so hungry to be mentored and learn from people who are more advanced in that kind of ministry. I have discovered many pastors in Russia who have the same kind of hunger. Many of them want to be connected with churches and ministers in the US who could train and mentor them. Recently, I had a conversation with one very successful pastor in Russia (Siberia). When I shared with him about seeking the Lord to teach me how to live and see his power in my daily walk, he got so excited and asked me to find ministers successfully walking in this arena who would come to Russia or conduct on-line video seminars and workshops with them. I am currently working on creating a web-based training program for Russian speaking pastors and church leaders. In light of the political changes in Russia, we need to be prepared for the worst case scenario, the potential return of high government control and oppression of Christians and their activities. We pray for this not to happen but we need to be ready if it does. Just like in the time of the USSR when radio was used to bring the Gospel to people, we want to utilize the technologies available today to equip the first generation of Russian pastors, even if the borders of Russia close again. Please pray for and give to this ministry.
