We had been contacted by Ray Hambro one Saturday morning while we were broadcasting our live radio program from Dallas, Texas. We could not resist The Hambro’s offer to hold services at their place they sounded like solid Christian’s and we were ready to get out of the Metroplex. So in August of 1992 we found ourselves ministering in Jacksboro, Texas at the Hambro’s Ranchette.
They had set up an open air meeting, also referred to as a brush harbor meeting for us to minister under the open heavens. When we arrived they had a large brick outdoor pit cooking the meal for the evening. Over the hill everything was set up for the services with lights hanging in the trees. An awning made from old cedar post that had been erected and covered with branches from the area that had just been cleared. In the open area where unmatched chairs and few buckets and boards scatter about for the congregation to sit on.
After services, we all gathered in a big circle and began to pray under the stars. Everyone began praying at the same time some in tongues others in their natural language. In just a few minutes, the Lord spoke to me as clear as I had ever heard Him. He said, “Tell your wife she will be with child before the year is out.” I thought to myself maybe we’re not ready for a little one. Then He spoke again, “Tell your wife she will be with child before the year is out.” I had no choice so I turned to my wife and told her out loud for all to hear what God had said. She looked at me a little startled as did everyone else.
The rest of the year went by in a flash. It seemed we were everywhere ministering and then the year was over. New Year’s day, I recalled the word the Lord gave me that past August and thought, ole well I guess I missed that one.
Then one day, in February, my wife broke the news that she was pregnant. Needless to say I was in shocked. When the time came I raced to the hospital only to wait 36 hours before I could see my new baby Girl, Savannah. After seeing Savannah and visiting with her Mother everyone fell asleep so I decided I better eat something since I had not eaten in couple of days. Times were very lean and I had no money but I remember there was a Denny’s restaurant just across the highway from the hospital. I had seen a TV commercial where they offered a free meal on your birthday. So I placed my order after presenting my driver’s license to verify my birthday and that is when it hit me. Savannah was born on my birthday. Excited and wanting to tell someone, I told the waitress and to my surprise she told me she was born on her Dad’s birthday. I knew then that God must have great plans for Savannah and I still do to this day.
After the services were over a group of women served sandwiches, chips and drinks, when I sat down to eat the three men rushed over and sat down right across from me and wanted to know everything about the Holy Spirit. That night was my first Prophetic Evangelistic experience as recorded in First Corinthians 14:24,25 “But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all. And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you.”
As a final note I would like to dedicate this testimony to Ray Hambro of Jacksboro, Texas who went to be with our Lord Jesus just a few weeks ago. Ray touched thousands of lives for the glory of God; he will be missed.
Comments and Testimonies
For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. ~ Rev. 19:10b
Prophecy is the testimony that Jesus is not dead but Alive and Speaking to you and I.
You really touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes.
The fact that you have been praying for me, proves and displays Gods incredible love for me. Because if you, who just know of me a little, care so much, how much more does God care!!?? That’s just to hard to comprehend… But I choose to accept and believe. Thank you so much for allowing God to use your good heart to show His love for me!
Life has been very hard, and I have suffered a lot of despair and depression. But since I received some personal prophecies from you (6 of them, since last march), I have found a much hope and faith!
I’m still holding on to them in faith even though my situation looks worse than ever!! But I believe! 🙂
Thank you for encouraging me.
