Tales of Glory - Interior Castle Second Mansions

Tales of Glory - this episode we move into the Second Mansions of Saint Teresa of Avila's Interior Castle. Here Saint Teresa explains to us the differences between the First Mansions and the Second Mansions. Souls that enter the Second Mansions are no longer deaf-and-dumb. We begin to hear God as we develop our prayer life. In the Second Mansions we encounter harsh trials to correct the soul in its sanctification. Saint Teresa tells us that we need to employ the practice of Recollection into our everyday prayer practices. Let's dive into the Second Mansions!

Tales of Glory - Analyzing Voodoo Spirits and the GA Episode Home Invasion

In this episode of Tales of Glory podcast, we look at voodoo and the recent episode of Ghost Adventures, 'Home Invasion". About the voodoo witch spirit that infests Aaron Goodwin's old home. More important, what do you the pastor do when a member of the church body tells you there house has a demonic voodoo infestation?

I've been ignoring GA more and more lately because of its level of darkness is reaching an all time low. They're satanists. The crew doesn't call themselves that, but it's what they are. And they're actions reveal it. This episode of GA has some revelations on the current readiness of the Christian Church on dealing with the demonic and witchcraft. We are not to RUN from it. In this episode, Aaraon's father Dan, admits his pastor and friend could not help him with the matter of the demonic infestation of Dan Goodwin's home. M16 Ministries, from it's early days, was literally thrown into battles with voodoo, No one shadowed me, or trained me. God brought the fight to my ministry, literally. I didn't advertise or ask for it. The Holy Spirit trained me. In this podcast I want to speak out and make comments on what to do when this supernatural battle hits the pews of your church.

Remember, there is no methodology in this. It's all about who you are in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit directs you in these battles!!!



Note, I made this episode on OBS, and youtube wouldn't let me use the Ghost Adventures clips. Well, dang it! Oh, well. So this youtube is just a rehash of the podcast. Sorry...

Show Notes:

M16 Ministries Curse Breaking in Haiti - I mentioned I would post my video on the praying and cleansing of the Haitian witch doctor. My video was removed. Arghh!!! I'll need to go dig up the original copy. Hopefully, I still have it somewhere. Apologies.

Tales of Glory - Interior Castle First Mansions Chapter 02

After some hiatus and a little quarantine time in between, Tales of Glory - Interior Castle First Mansions Chapter 02!
Let's dive into this classic manuscript on prayer and see what the Saint has to say on developing your interior life. We are in First mansions, where we just entered the castle and the soul is beginning to learn to pray. Or as the Saint says, the soul opens into itself through prayer.
In chapter 02, Saint Teresa wants to warn us about the dangers of mortal sin, before we move into deeper mansions. We must address our sinful nature, before advancing through the castle. Otherwise, the venomous vipers and reptiles, our own sinful natures we allowed in with us will draw us back out!

Night Strike on the 700 Club

A Tourist Getting Prophetic Word at Night Strike

Night Strike History

Night Strike began in 1999, when Bob Johnson, pastor of the Frontline church in Redding, was called by God to come minister on the streets of San Francisco. Bob Johnson, along with Mark Neitz and Milton Meyer, started ministering to the poor on the streets of Jones and Eddy. It was then the skidrow of the city. It is now the site of the Tenderloin Police station. Mark Neitz said their old white van with a purple stripe would pull up on a Thursday evening for street ministry and the place would just go nuts. The people knew the minsitry van pulled up and they would gather around it and start rocking it and pound on it. Mark and Milton would hand out peanut butter sandwiches prepared by Debra Stineart. Debra was still in Redding at the time and she would prepare all the food and items to be handed out. Redding is a 3 hour drive from San Francisco.

Mark Neitz made connections with other local ministries, like the Homeless Church, led by Pastor Evan Prosser. Mark and his wife, Jessica, led ministry bootcamps to serve the people in high crime areas like Hunter's Point and the Richmond district, as well as the Tenderloin.

By 2006, Night Strike grew into a large minstry event occuring every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month. Church groups from all over the United States came to work in the "manna truck" and serve hundreds of meals to the homeless in a matter of hours. Some attendees chose to work close to the "manna truck" because the streets were still rough at night. Other more adventurous people went out on teams to deliver food, and most important of all - a touch from the heavenly Father. Night Strike has witnessed incredible healings and delivernces on the streets. Night Strike started as, and still continues on today, as a supernatural street ministry bringing healing to the street and heavenly encounters.

In 2009, M16 Minsitries evolved from deliverance ministry on the streets with Night Strike.

In October 2011, Bob Johnson was called again by God to work in area of passion, social Justice. Bob returned to his home in Redding to start iDignify. Mark Neitz was being called to start an orphanage for children rescued from sex trafficking. Bob and Mark passed the batton of operation over to M16 Ministries to fullfill their new calling and season in ministry.

Hope you enjoyed the fireside chat. If you have questions about starting your ministry, leave them in the comments. I will answer, or expand the good questions in future podcasts.

In this episode of Tales of Glory we dive into Saint Teresa of Avila's classic masterpiece on prayer, "The Interior Castle" or "Mansions", Chapter 01. Saint Teresa was a Spanish Catholic from the 1500's who knew a thing or two about developing a deep a prayer life with Jesus Christ.
