Firestorm Conference Testimony

By August 26, 2020Equipping the Saints

Hello Firestormer’s:

It seems everyone has been “slammed with busy-ness” since the Firestorm Conference was held in Murfreesboro, TN, July 31-Aug 2. I have been pressing those who came for a “testimony,” with not much response. (Ahem)

You may wonder why I have continued to seek a “testimony” from those who were at the conference, but not only were those who came united as a family through the Spirit but…….Do you realize your “testimony” is one of the greatest spiritual weapons we have in our arsenal.

A Testimony is speaking from personal experience about incidents relating to the Word of God and confirming the truth of God’s Word.

The strategy Jesus reveals to us to reach the whole world with His Gospel is through our testimony.

He unveiled this in His closing words as He stood on the Mount of Olives with His disciples, getting ready to leave them, in Acts 1:8:

8) But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Jesus did not say, “You will witness,” He said, “You will BE witnesses..” In other words, it is not just the words we speak or the tracts that we hand out, but our total life is to be a witness to Jesus and the truth of the gospel. It is when we go out, tell people what He has done and enable them to be filled with the Spirit, so they will go out to people from all over the world and also become witnesses of Christ.

The last words Jesus spoke on earth revealed his heart and mind set on all of us become witnesses, witnessing and winning others to Christ. Looking back on history, when God’s people applied this strategy, it worked. Within three hundred years, it had conquered the cruel and powerful Roman Empire.

This same strategy is revealed in Revelation 12:7-11 where the Bible indicates this same weapon will ultimately cast down even Satan’s kingdom in the heavenlies. This can be seen in a prophetic preview in Revelation 12:7-11

7) Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9 The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Messiah. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down.

The “accuser of the brothers” is Satan. This describes how he has been hurled down from his kingdom in the heavenlies. Then it describes how the believers overcame Satan. Notice it is a direct, person-to-person conflict.

11 They triumphed over him by the Blood of the Lamb and by the Word of their Testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.

One of our main weapons is in that word “testimony.” It is your testimony that will ultimately shake down the whole kingdom of Satan. Our testimony centers in two things: The Word of God and the Blood of Jesus.

It is OUR Testimony, which releases the power in the Word and the Blood. We overcome Satan when we testify personally to what the Word of God says the Blood of Jesus has done, is doing and will do for US.

What and Where is your Testimony, for it may be the one thing, which will bring down the stronghold or principality you are dealing with!

Selah = Think about it.


From Mitch Markham – The Firestorm Conference
My Testimony

From Mitch to: Bonnie & The Firestorm Conference Attendees

I have contemplated and prayed in the best way to indicate my deep gratitude for you (and for those that you have surrounded yourself with) in sharing your gift in Him.

In a pure step of faith, I found myself in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. I often wondered what I was doing so out of my comfort zone. I questioned my involvement with those who walked on Holy ground and experienced a deep and meaningful relationship with Him.

Thank you for including me in this special place where God truly lives and breathes life into others. You have restored my faith in a living God who deeply cares for His children.

It is apparent to me, and to others, that you have a special gift of song and spirit. I thank you for including all of us in a Holy Communion that allows us to understand that we belong to a living God who cares deeply for us all.

I am inspired beyond words. I am now more motivated to be a child of God and Christ-like. Thank you for inspirationally waking my sleeping heart and soul!

When asked recently, “IF the Lord truly lives in our hearts to give life to the fullest, then why are there not more Christians demonstrating the life and love of Christ?”

At first, I was disarmed and a bit defensive. Was this individual reflecting upon something I said or did that was contrary to Christ within me? Or did I fail to act upon the whispered direction of my Lord? It humbled me as I searched and searched.

In my search, I was reminded of those that He has planted in my life to show me what it is like to live and breathe John 10:10. Out of the myriad of individuals He has allowed me to walk alongside, you came to mind as a shining light. Thank you for being an example of an individual who has demonstrated the life and love of our Lord! May He continue to bless you and the ministry He has placed in your heart!

Whoo Hooo

I received another Testimony!

“I hear the chains falling…Hallelujah “

My Testimony – Shirley Riser

My heart is full…..so full it over flows. I have prayed I have contemplated oh how to say in words what is in my heart……and it just fails me. But , but….we are told to give our testimony to bring honor and Glory to God for all that He has done and is still doing. I am one that is not eloquent in speech; lol I feel so like Moses and can so relate. So here I am Lord, in obedience to you and with your help share what is so deep into my heart.

I have been to many of the Firestorm conferences….each one is different exciting like a big family reunion. Seeing people that you don’t know, never seen, only on line. So, I was truly looking forward to coming to conference to reconnect with those through the years I have gotten to know and love deeply as my brother and sister in Christ.

True to form this conference was unique and different…….nothing like I have ever experienced since my receiving my new birth and baptism in the Holy Spirit almost 20 yrs ago. One word HUMBLING. I’m not sure what else to say without out writing a book lol. I do not think I have ever received such love and acceptance in my entire life.

My life’s journey, the earlier years where not kind years. Lets just say rejection – non acceptance was really big in my life. Misunderstood, living with criticism and judgment, not accepted for who I am. Life has been a long, long journey and Jesus has brought a lot of healing through this Ministry.

The crowning jewel to my healing happened as this conference. I was so loved so accepted, so fussed over….and I am not use to that kind of attention. I tried to push it away and reject it…who am I to receive such love…..I got to know a few people a little better…got a little closer and knew they wouldn’t hurt me or reject me….so you can see why I say humbling….and was going to let it go at that, but Papa wouldn’t let me….I am being very transparent here and it isn’t very comfortable. (smile)

Then GOD! lol. This was a real biggie. I am a worshipper….I can’t sing lol, but I love to dance. I have loved to dance since I could walk. Not to be able to dance crushes me. Ever since I began my new walk….I danced, I had freedom I have not ever had before. I wanted to show Jesus how much I love Him…..and when I made a decision to dance in front of my church, the enemy has attacked me…..he tried to cripple my left foot…..but I danced…..I had a dance for conference.

But during this crazy pandemic, I began to have issues with my knees…..but I had a dance in my heart I wanted to do before the Lord and I allowed it to stop me…oh how I have repented of this. Oh Shirley, you of such little faith….this is what I heard from the enemy….but God gave me a second chance…….

I think Bonnie’s oil helped….Ann just about baptized me with this oil on my knee lol. We were singing Revelation song…..as I was singing, I was moved to go and get one of the flags and felt well I can do that….and I did…..but I was being so moved by the Spirit that I began to dance and had no issue with my knee doing so.

I danced…..and I wept….and asked Father to forgive me for not having the faith to move out despite what was going on in my knees. We are to walk by Faith not by sight….by feelings…..just move in Faith and I failed the test, but was redeemed at Conf :-)….Oh and what happened next!!! Oh my, Pastor T tapped Jesus on the shoulder and said can I have this dance lol!!! So Pastor T and I danced….oh my goodness….the love oh the love…..words just fail me but I want to say. I truly experienced Father Abba Daddys love….and I think for the first time….He never rejects. Never condems…accepts us who we are….and now I have to accept who I am in Him….My Daddy loves me.

Oh there were so many other things that have happened, but these are the biggies. I have put this conf into a little box….tucked it into my heart and when the enemy comes with his condemnations, I take out my little box and remember……all the love that was so showered on me……I have learned…..to receive to accept the blessings and love that flow my way.

Hello Everyone:

I sent out a post asking if anyone had a testimony of what happened to them at the FS Prophetic Roar Conference this year. I have a couple folks who have sent me a note and I wanted to share and let you know it is not too late to send in what happened to you at the Conference at Victory Church in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

Here is a testimony from Maureen “Bridget” Norris

This conference was going to be much different for me than the others. I had determined this in my heart. Admittedly, I watched a lot of things happen. My heart wanted to participate. My brain argued A LOT.

The day we had the activation about the Procession music. I heard along the same thing that everyone else heard. The first person got up and almost read my paper where I had written down what I was given. I got up to go to the front. My feet yielded to other people as they also had said what I had written down. I was bouncing up and down in an almost giddiness, because, at that point, I KNEW I was still hearing what God was saying, and not chasing down rabbit-trails. I was ecstatic and my spirit was already jumping.

I was worshipping during the service the morning of July 31st, and I heard in my spirit to walk over and grab my mattah —what I then called — walking stick. As I reached for it, the hesitation and nerves all said NO, you will make a fool out of yourself. I argued, for about 15 seconds, grabbed it, and walked back to my spot. Prior to this, I had been dealing with back/neck/shoulder issues for a few months, having been awakened in writhing pain to the point of tears, and in the hospital twice in July for the same.

I NEEDED a breakthrough where those, and several other, issues were concerned. As I started to war, in faith, and that is just what it was, WAR, MY atmosphere had changed. I lifted my mattah above my head, both hands, in faith. We started the serious worship. My mattah and my hands were still both up, bent slightly at the elbow, because I was feeling pain, and getting tired.

Suddenly, in the middle of all that, I felt a hand grab the mattah, between my hands, and pull straight up. My feet were planted solid. My arms BOTH straightened up. No pain. A lot of tears, but no pain, for the first time in months. As I had my eyes closed, I thought it was someone who had come over to “fix” me. Well, it was. Just not in the physical.

I thought I heard Bonnie mention my name at one point. I just could NOT take myself away from that. I just continued to worship in my spot, hands raised, eyes closed, elbows solid and locked with that mattah. I went back to Facebook that afternoon to re-watch the broadcast from that morning, to see where it was that Bonnie did say my name and to write down the word Bonnie gave me later in the service.

All that to say this.

That morning, the Lord healed me of so many issues at this conference.
These are just two of the times at this conference that the Lord walked me through and held me up.

Forgive me for my delay as I struggle to get caught up. I am sending the original note concerning the conference with pictures below. Blessings, bon

Here is a testimony from Becca Card, VP Firestorm Ministries Int’l

Every conference we have is different and there is a sense that it just might be the best one. But to me there is no doubt that the 2020 conference is the very best one. First of all Yahweh was in the house waiting on us. I have to believe that no one there left unchanged in some way. Yahweh touched each of us and meld us together in a new way.

For me I had to fight to get there. There were health issues and other things that were stopping me from going. I told Bonnie and others, “If I can just get there, things will change. I will change, but I have to get there. Thanks to Nicole for picking me up and letting me ride with her and some other things I was able to go almost at the last minute.

When I walked into the church I was overwhelmed with the presence of Yahweh. I immediately knew that I was in His Presence. I could have literally fallen on my face and just been with Him. I don’t have words to express it but at that moment there was shift or change in me.

There were a lot of different moments that were special. Yahweh melded us all together. We were one voice. In the middle of pandemic we were together worshipping Yahweh, learning more about Him and then using our gifts.

There was a point when they prayed for me and there was a breakthrough. Even though the symptoms did not go away I got my life back. Every day I got a little more of me and a whole lot more of Yahweh. From the moment I got there and felt the first touch until the last touch when we left the church Yahweh was constantly touching me and changing me.

Yahweh is still changing me even now that I am home. A few short days after getting home I had a cardiology appointment. He wanted to do a heart cath. Miraculously within an hour of being home I had an appointment in two days. My LAD (the widow maker) had two blockages of 80% and 100% . The majority of my LAD artery was blocked and after they put two long stents in the blood is flowing in my heart again. I believe that all this happened as a direct result of what happened at conference.

No one left unchanged. Make plans now to come to next year’s conference. You will be forever changed.


So, what happened to you?

What is your testimony?
Send it to me so we can share

Firestorm 2020 Conference

The Year of The Prophetic Roar

What Happened

Hello Firestormers:

It is almost impossible to explain what all happened at the Firestorm 2020 Conference. In the midst of a pandemic, in the midst of all the fear and riots and our whole lives being shaken, we came together to Roar and Worship our King.

We came to love on Him and let Him know how important He is to us. We came to Fellowship, Dance, Praise and send up our Shouts of Glory and Praise to Yahweh and Yahshua/Jesus for all the world to see.

We came to pray over each other and release the Word of The LORD to all who would hear and believe.

I have no doubt in my mind or spirit, we changed the atmosphere and I declared before the conference; those who came would be changed.

So today, to those of you who were able to come, were you changed?

I would love to hear your testimonies and be able to share them with all of our Firestorm Friends and though many of our friends were not able to come this year because of health, finances and such, I am sure they would love to hear what happened to us. Please take a few moments and right down your thoughts and send them to me: BonnieNelP@aol.com

Blessings to you all and please note; it is not to late to send in a donation to help us with conference expenses.

Here are some pictures from the FS Year of The Prophetic Roar Conference.
