“Father of Lights” is the new video by Darren Wilson of Wanderlust Productions. His first video “Finger of God” was good, second “Furious Love” was awesome (despite the corny name), and his third is even better.
The free preview is likely over by the time you read this blog, but the full video is available to stream through iBethel.tv. Click here to check it out. If you need a preview to convince yourself to spend $5 to watch, check out the trailer below:
Although the video is very negative towards open-air preaching and towards preaching judgment (two very biblical things), the good points of the movie far outweigh the bad. It’s full of great testimonies of Jesus showing up to heal, bring conviction of sin, and prove that he’s just as alive today as he was 2000 years ago.
Here are a few of my favorite stories:
1. God gives Ravi a picture of a bearded man wearing a turban and an orange robe. God, who daily speaks to Ravi audibly, directs the man to visit a certain temple in India. There, the film crew follows him as he looks for the bearded man. They meet the man, who is not merely a Hindu priest but an overseer of priests. This man informs them that a few days ago, he had a dream in which a man looking exactly like Ravi appeared to him, and another figure told him to go to a certain temple and find Ravi, whom he must then listen to. Watch the movie to find out where the conversation leads.
2. Hearing rumors of a large gang battle about to take place, a Christian man invites one of the leaders to meet and talk. While talking, the Christian gets a prophetic word about the man’s daughter. The man is visibly touched. However, a few minutes later, a woman walks in. After getting counsel for a bit, she surrenders to Jesus and prays to follow him as Lord and master. Watch the video to find out how this changes the gang leader.
3. A Christian on a tour of Capernaum sees a Muslim walking with a cane. He approaches and asks if he can pray for healing for the elderly gentleman. The Muslim begins to tear up and then walk without a cane. He says it’s been 23 years since he could walk without a cane. The tour guide (also a Muslim) sees what happens and begins to tell all the others on the tour about it. A *Muslim* is preaching Jesus! He approaches the Christian and says, “In the Mosque, I ask a question, and I get an answer. But I want you to give me the answer before I ask the question.” The Christian prays, but you’ll have to watch the movie to find out whether God comes through or not.
4. A man and woman sense God telling them to sell everything and take their three children to China. They leave, bringing only what they can fit into two suitcases. Upon arrival, they cannot speak the language, have no contacts, and no clue about how to minister. God leads them into a ministry that will literally leave you crying, but you’ll have to watch to find out what it is.
The movie is full of very normal, very real Christian men and women simply walking in love and power, stepping out in faith and trusting in Jesus to provide the miracles that he promised. You will be challenged and encouraged as you watch the video, and a godly jealousy for the gifts of the Spirit will arise in your heart.
John 14:12 – “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.”
Mark 16:17-18 – “ These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
1 Corinthians 12:31 – “But earnestly desire the greater gifts…”
1 Corinthians 14:1 – “Pursue love, yet desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.”
1 Corinthians 14:39 – “Therefore, my brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy…”
Yes, Lord! I desire!!!
