I ve been in the ministry more thantwenty-five years and had many wonderful encounterswith the Lord, but I can truthfully say that the revela-tion knowledge God has imparted to me in these lastfew years has completely changed my life, taking me toa place in God I had never before , you can t put up walls where there is nofoundation.
3 You can t add a roof where there are nowalls. The life-changing truths God has been showingme couldn t have been added to my life had not a strongfoundation of the Word been built inside of me lineupon line, precept upon precept, through many hoursand many years of praying in tongues while meditatingon the now know more than ever before that praying intongues is the revelation gift that helped lay a scrip-tural foundation in my life. God was getting me readyfor the awesome, eternal truths He is now pouring intomy spirit in preparation for the days to come. He isusing the culmination of all those years of praying intongues to open up to me a whole new realm of under-standing in very measure of God s Power in a believer s lifeis dependent on how much of his life is ordered by theHoly Ghost.
4 Therefore, from the very beginning, theprimary message of this ministry has been praying intongues. Over the decades, the Lord has imparted awealth of revelation knowledge to my spirit on thissubject. Step by step, He has taught me how to walk5out of a life dominated by the flesh into a new life dom-inated by the Holy spirit through the matchless gift ofpraying in my heavenly prayer language. Then in 1997, the Lord spoke strongly to my spirit ,saying, This message on tongues has come to maturity. At first, I thought God meant the message had cometo maturity in I came to understand that Hewasn t talking about me in particular at all. He wassaying that the time had come to share in a broadermeasure the revelation knowledge He had given meover the years regarding praying in tongues.
5 The mes-sage had come to maturity for the Body of Christ. The Lord has commissioned me to teach believershow to live a life of Power as they walk in the spirit ,always building on the foundation of the Word andpraying in tongues as the Holy spirit gives book is written out of my desire to be faithful tothat divine have not only taught the truths contained in thisbook for many years; I have also pursued them with allmy heart in my own personal walk with God. So believeme when I tell you this: As you read this book and dili-gently apply its principles, the day will come when youlook back on your life and say in awe and wonder, I mnot the same person. I have learned to walk in theSpirit, and it has completely changed my life forever!

6 In His infi-nite wisdom, He left nothing out as He looked downthrough the ages. He passed through generation aftergeneration, planning every intricate detail of every lifethat would live on the face of the earth. God s desirewas to recover as many as possible from Satan s rebel-lious camp and to gather unto Himself a people Hecould call His in the midst of this divine planning ses-sion, long before the eons of time began, God cameacross yourname! Then He formulated a perfect planjust for you that is unlike any other plan for any otherperson who has ever been born. Imagine God theFather looked out across the great void of space andtime and saw the moment in time when you would liveon this earth. Then He decided precisely how thatmoment should be filled!
7 We Must ChooseHis PlanGod conceived a wonderful plan for every one of His plan, we were predestined to become His sonsand daughters at the Cross. But one potential obstaclestands between us and God s perfectly conceived pur-poses: Using the free will God has given us, we must9choose to walk in the plan He has ordained for ourlives. God looks for a way to approach each of us in orderto present His personal plan for our lives. He beginswith the preaching of the Cross that encourages us toaccept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. If we acceptJesus, we take our first step into the plan God predes-tined for us before the foundations of the world. But ifwe reject Him, then like so many before us, we will liveand die without ever taking that first step salvation into the divine purpose for our when I was ministering in India, I looked outat the crowd of thousands before me and marveled thatGod could have a specific plan for every individual inthat vast multitude.
8 The truth is, God formulated aperfect plan for every single person born since only waits for each person to find out what thatplan is and then to choose to walk in it. Jesus talked about His plan of eternal life formankind in Matthew 7:13,14:Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is thegate, and broad is the way, that leadeth todestruction, and many there be which go inthereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is theway, which leadeth unto life, and few there bethat find it. Jesus words indicate that the majority of peopleend their lives with one final journey into a godlesseternity without Him. A person can live and die and goto hell without knowing Jesus or fulfilling God s planfor his life. However, that doesn t change the fact thatThe walk of the spirit The walk of Power10 God had a perfect plan of redemption and purpose forthat person; he just never discovered it.
9 But, praise God, you don t have to be one of thatnumber! If you have found the Cross and made Jesusyour personal Savior, nothing can stop you from dis-covering the rest of God s plan for your life. All youhave to do is chooseto obey Him. The Holy spirit Prays for UsSo somewhere, somehow, in God s great and mar-velous plan for His creation, your name came up. AndGod, in His eternal wisdom and counsel, laid out a per-fect plan for your personal life. Then the Holy spirit did a wonderful thing. He lis-tened intently to every detail of your life as the Fatherplanned your birth, your ministry, your prosperity, andevery aspect of your redemption and personal life. In fact, the Holy spirit is the One who has been putin charge of overseeing God s plan for your personallife.
10 No one can represent that plan better than He was there. He heard God the Father plan everyminute that s not all. This third Person of the Godheadstands face to face and absolutely coequal in every waywith the other two members of the Godhead, the greatJehovah and the mighty Logos (Jesus). But upon yourregeneration as a child of God, the Holy spirit actuallyconsented to take up residence within your spirit andto offer His services to you! And one of the main rea-sons He came was to pray for you. The Holy spirit s Work Within11 Why did God send the Holy spirit to live inside ofyou? So He could change you into the image of His in order to accomplish that goal, the Holy Spiritbrought His own prayer language with Him so Hecould pray for all that concerns you. With that prayer language, He gets involved directlywith you in a one-on-one relationship that is inde-pendent of anyone else, even of your own mind.
