TESTIMONIES FROM OUR ‘POWER OF GOD’ CONFERENCES
“A massive breakthrough in healing and deliverance took place. Since then I have woken more refreshed and getting out of bed with more determination, joy and lightness in my spirit.”
“I enjoyed the conference so much. The laughter and fun was something I hadn't expected, not just from the Holy Spirit, but from everyone there.”
“It was a huge blessing. I work in a GP’s surgery and I was saying to my husband about me calling patients in for an over 40's health-check. My hubbie said, ‘This conference is your health-check!’…. I got rid of more stuff, so there’s more room for Jesus. It was like, in a small way, being 'born again' again.”
“God moved on me and it's really staying with me. I can feel myself changing. My views about myself and God are being transformed and it's great.”
“I’m so grateful to be released. I’m still absorbing all God has done. God surprised me and I suspect, many others, as we came to Him with battered hearts.”
“I feel like God saw my tears and cries for help and sent you to show me and all of us at the conference the way forward. I'm also thankful God chose someone with a sense of humour to be the minister of all this stuff. You actually manage to make all this clearing up of sludge and slime feel like fun!”
“A great weekend; so well thought through and carefully put together. Worship and jokes took the joy level through the roof. The presence of God was SO strong. Very, very safe and very, very effective because, as well as the carefully crafted process based on all the years of ministry, you constantly put it all in Jesus' hands.”
TESTIMONIES FOR THE ‘FREEDOM FROM FREEMASONRY’ CONFERENCES
“I had IBS for three years. I almost didn’t want to eat anything. I was always bloated and in pain and worrying about what I could eat. I was healed at Joe’s Freemasonry conference. Now I feel great. I can eat what I want which is such a relief.”
“It was amazing! I feel there has been significant change already. Being so well informed is very helpful too.”
“I feel so much better since. God really answered my prayers to be completely set free finally!”
“An amazing weekend. I feel like a weight has lifted from my shoulders and I’m really grateful for your care, dedication and your wonderful ministry team.”
“I was freed from the fear of remembering which existed since early childhood. Prior to the weekend the front of my brain felt as though it was solid and not functioning properly. Since the weekend, my brain feels lighter and more unified. I still have memory loss but I feel vastly better. I felt constantly tired, as though I didn’t have the energy to keep going for God but now I feel reinvigorated.”
TESTIMONIES FROM THE ‘INNER HEALING’ CONFERENCES
“This work will go round the world and it needs to.”
“What precious times of inner healing! Blessings for all that you are to His church as you are obedient to His call to clean up His church. I am one grateful heart!”
“Brilliant, well put together, and has the feel of a family to it. I love the simplicity… hugely useful and equipping for helping myself and others.”
“A big thank you for all your love and support. It meant so, so much. So glad I came. My understanding has really grown and Joe was amazing.”
“You made it very safe. God was given space to restore us and he just got on with it.”
Sept 8/9: ‘Inner Healing’.
Dec 8/9: ‘Power of God’.
The conferences cost £25. To secure your place, send a cheque made payable to ‘Joe King’, to my address at the top of the newsletter. These conferences are always over-subscribed, so book soon.
GOD IS TAKING YOU OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE
I believe that God doesn’t want men and women of God but children of God. Jesus said, ‘I tell you most solemnly, unless you become like little children you will never enter the kingdom of heaven’
(Mt. 18:3). Much of the Kingdom of God is unreasonable to the rational, scientific mind. Jesus tells us we must make ourselves ‘as little as a little child’
(Mt 18:4). It’s an act of the will. We must give ourselves permission to be childlike and vulnerable which is a threatening concept. This testimony is a great illustration of that principal:
“It was a terrible period in my life. Within the space of a few weeks, one of my nieces had committed suicide, another niece had attempted suicide, my daughter had attempted suicide and I discovered my mother had tried to take her life twice. I sat in church feeling numb. During the worship, Joe encouraged everyone to (in faith) hold up an imaginary glass, ask God to fill it with his presence and then to drink. He then asked us to dip our heads in an imaginary barrel full of God’s presence and take a big drink. I felt so desperate for God’s touch I put my head forwards into the barrel and drank. Suddenly I fell to the floor and began to laugh uncontrollably as God filled me with his joy and peace as he delivered me from all the grief I’d been experiencing.”
THE POWER OF SINGING IN TONGUES
“Before I was a Christian I used to be a Jehovah’s Witness. Amongst other things, it left me gripped by constant fear. Over the years, I received prayer which helped a little but the fear would always return. Then I attended a meeting where Joe commenced the worship by leading everyone in singing in tongues. Normally I regard singing in tongues as a horrible noise but suddenly I felt as if angelic voices were enveloping me. Then a noise started coming out of my mouth which was amazing.
I sang no words but one breath lasted far longer than I could naturally have sung. J
oy was bursting from me and it seemed like black wispy smoke was drifting from my feet as all the fear was leaving me. The singing in tongues went on for a long time but I loved it because the longer it went on, the more deliverance I received.
At home the experience continued. Now I feel so peaceful!!! I often think that I owe so much to Joe for his wonderful praise that night!”
TESTIMONIES FROM THE USA
Although Sara and I used to minister in the USA we still receive testimonies from that time:
“Thank you Joe for praying for me a few years ago. It was the start of freedom for me after years of pain.”
“You and Sara and the work you did to help set me free is one of the main reasons I am in ministry today!!!”
“How can I ever begin to thank you for your ministry in Denver. Thank you for all the prophetic words spoken over me. I didn't understand them at the time, but now--yes. You changed the face of our church! We’re not the same church. People say they can feel the Holy Spirit. The anointing is here. God sent you and Sara to our church and we learned about the power of love and deliverance in a way we did not know. We need you in the U.S. You are a mighty man of God. I am eternally grateful for you.” (Pastor Paula Holmes)
“I was involved in your deliverance training in Denver. Pastor Paula’s anointing is awesome. Her gift of deliverance has freed many who were in bondage. I credit you for moving us into this ministry of deliverance through the training. You are thought of often and fondly.”
We would love to begin ministering in the States again but we haven’t received any invitations to return. We’re taking that as the Lord not opening the doors … yet! However, we really value all the people we met there over through that wonderful 10 year period of ministry and miss them terribly.
From Monday to Friday I minister to individuals in my home on an ongoing basis. Here’s one typical testimony: “During my childhood I lived under the strict controlling influence of my late grandfather. This led to a number of big lies and spirits of infirmity and rejection afflicting me and a stronghold of negativity dominating my mindsets and approach to life. Through Joe’s ministry, after months of renouncing these lies and filling my life with God’s truths, my whole life has changed.”
ANGELS AT ‘HUNGRY HEARTS’ (HH)
People frequently see angels at Hungry Hearts. I was telling a friend called Steve about my wife, Sara, seeing an angel at HH. Later, Steve sent me this note. “I mentioned the angel story to my mate, Carl, and he told me that some years ago during worship at one of your workshops, he looked up at the windows above where you normally stand and saw a group of angelic figures looking down at everyone and smiling. It freaked him out a bit. He thought he was seeing things, so never mentioned it.”
“I went to Hungry hearts for the first time last week. I enjoyed it so much, and I absolutely loved the song ‘When Heaven Comes Down’ too.”
HUNGRY HEARTS DATES
We’re now meeting on the first Saturday of every month at 7.30pm @ St. Matthias Church Centre.
The aim of HH is to be a ‘portal’ for his love and power to pour through from heaven.
“Your music impacts me as God speaks through it. It is as though He is singing to me and I receive His great love for me!”
“In the 80's you were at a youth event I attended. I bought your cassette called ‘You Must Be Joking’, I played it to death, and through it you played a small part in the building of my Christian life. I'm going to dig into some of your newer material. I look forward to renewing the acquaintance with your work.”
Sara: She absolutely loves her new job, advising GPs about effective drug treatment and helping to make massive savings on their prescription costs. What a terrific answer to prayer!
Music: I’m presently working on various albums. (i) Another instrumental album (ii) A compilation of the all the best moments from our Hungry Hearts meetings and (iii) A 5 track album similar in content to ‘Next To you’ where God is speaking one-to-one to the listener.
Supernatural lifestyle: As I was in the check-out at Tesco’s, I felt God tell me that the man in front was separated from his partner, that she was like an ice mountain because of hurts in her life, but that Jesus was working on her and that things would be OK. I approached him in the car park and told him what God had said. He was utterly amazed because that was exactly his situation. He said he was a back-slidden Christian because of years of difficulties.
Police woman brought to the Lord: A few months ago I was on Jury Service for two weeks. At the beginning, the jurors introduced themselves to each other and said what their occupation was. It’s always difficult for me to describe exactly what I do, so I semi-jokingly said I was an exorcist! Immediately, everyone was enthralled and there followed some really interesting conversations about the power of the Holy Spirit. Two people said they had ‘presences’ in their home which made them fearful. Another said he had voices in his head. I became friendly with a police woman. Before we went home one day, we sat in Leeds Civic Square talking about her life. Eventually I asked her if she would allow Jesus to come into her life. As I prayed for her, going through each phases of difficulties and hurts she’d experienced, she said she was feeling lots of heat. I reassured her that this was normal when having an encounter with God. The next day she told me that after we’d separated, as she was walking to the station to catch her train, she suddenly started to laugh uncontrollably. I told her that the heat was to do with being filled with God and laughter was the overflow. (There is a part 2 to this story which I’ll share in the next newsletter.)

For all of you doubters who thought it would never happen - i am now on facebook!!!!!! I can’t really belief it myselF. take a look.
Over the past 6 months, giving to my ministry has dropped about £500. The reason in each case has been the difficult financial climate we’re all living in.
To those of you who support me financially, a great big heartfelt thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!
