Chasing Jesus

During prayer this morning I didn't levitate, but I did receive a word from the Holy Spirit that touched my heart deeply. "Jed, chase after Me and everything you need will Chase after you"

Then this passage came to my heart. Which I have read multiple times, but something else jumped out to me.

Matthew 6:31-33 (NLT) "So don't worry about these things, saying, 'What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?' These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously and He will give you everything you need.

If anything should dominate our thoughts, it should be the Kingdom of God and to live righteously.  The way we walk daily, has a direct effect on everyone we come in contact with. What we say, and do needs to line up with how we live in the secret place.

I realize more and more each day that pursuing God, is more about living every second honoring His name and His presence and releasing what He gives, when He leads me to.

By seeking the Kingdom of God, we have a deep desire to live righteously. Our lives look different, and we stand for another Kingdom than this world. Yet, we are here, firm in faith shining like the stars in Jesus name!

Jesus You are Lord. You saved me, healed me and delivered me. Now that I have You, my whole life is NEW. I declare Your Kingdom will break loose through my life today and many people will experience heaven and surrender to You Jesus! Holy Spirit, dominate my thoughts and transform my heart to love you more, and love others more genuinely.

God bless you and your family,

Behind the scenes

Hard work and Sacrifice "Behind the scenes". My name is Jed Lindstrom, and I am fully committed to love God with my whole heart and life. I am equally committed to love my family and friends in the same way. Watch this 1 min video please and share to show your support for our family and ministry. Thank you so much and God bless you and you family - Evangelist Jed Lindstrom 

Desperate for Gods Presence




















I honestly did not feel like going to my office today. If you know me personally, you understand this is a bit of a struggle. Not that I don't like work, but I'd rather be on my feet moving and working with people; hands on. The work taking place this year in my home and office has been a little different, but preparing me for the next 7 years organizationally. 

As I was driving to my office this morning a bible scripture came to my heart: Galatians 5:16-26 (CLICK HERE TO VIEW). This is the verse that jumped out to me right away ...

"Gal. 5:24-25 (NLT) Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to His cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit's leading in every part of our lives."

I was realizing how spiritually, emotionally and physically drained I have been and to be honest, asked myself the question; "how do I move forward with so much on my plate?"

Then the Holy Spirit impressed this on my heart: "In order to move to this next level you need my power - and I will revive you!" There is was! I can handle whats on my plate when it is God with the serving spoon dishing me up. So the truth is, I have need to scrape some things off my plate, in order to go forward with complete peace and joy.

I dont want to live a normal Christian life, because there is no such thing. The Christian life is anything but normal, it is full of surprises and its all good!! It is full of love, life and hard work. 

Today I joyfully receive the power of the Holy Spirit! God, more of Your presence Holy Spirit and more of Your Kingdom released today in Jesus name. I simply want to be on target today, focused and burning hot. Opportunities arising and the desperation level for God's presence is at an all time high!! Amen. 

God bless you and your family,

Evangelist Jed Lindstrom

Start your day right

Every day brings new challenges, temptations and opportunities. Get ready early for what's coming next. Lean on the grace, power and love of God each step of the way. You will see God in the little things that make the big things in life grand.

We all must admit, that we can't move forward far without faith. I challenge you today, to lean on God Luke never before and let the Holy Spirit Take you further than you've ever been in life and love.

God bless you and your family,

#Redeem2017 Prayer Release




#Redeem2017 - Prayer Release
We are excited to announce something new with Lets Go Ministry (LGM). We have been praying and seeking the Lord for direction for 2017 and He has answered our prayers. I know it seems like 2016 just started but here we are planning for the holiday’s already. Time really is passing quickly.
We have decided to launch a campaign for the ministry to gain support. Support on many levels. Our first level is through Prayer. We need your prayers. God listens to His people. He is moved by our prayers. He is faithful to answer our prayers and we are asking you to stand with us as we pray for this campaign and of course for the work of LGM.
Ephesians 5:15-16 (NASB) Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.
I find it interesting, that many would tend to focus on the dark evil days we are living in, and completely miss the opportunities God places before us daily. In this passage, God is calling us to a higher level with Him, so we can "redeem the time" and utilize every opportunity to share the Gospel. That is what #Redeem2017 is all about. It is more than a call for support, it is a call to Gospel-Action. Here are a few ways we are asking you to begin to pray with us as we move forward by faith with #Redeem2017:
  • Pray… that the campaign would be successful and that people would hear the message of Redemption while watching the videos and reading the stories of the redemption power of Christ.
  • Pray… that the campaign would draw people to LGM and that people would see LGM as a light in the darkness.
  • Pray… that we would gain at least 55 new monthly financial partners. We need financial support in order to continue to do what the Lord has called us to do each day. 
We cannot express how truly grateful we are for you and your support. Whether it’s through prayers, encouraging words, or financial support we thank you very much! 
Please continue to watch for more throughout the next couple of months on FacebookInstagram and Twitter. You can also learn more how to become "One of 55 by Clicking Here"

God bless you and your family,

The wait was worth it - watch the video

It's been over a year since I received the phone call. A call that my wife and I could not ignore. A call to care for three kids in need of a family. Not just any kids, these are the siblings of my oldest daughter Rosella ... anyways, it is a long story, but watch this video and I pray that God touches your heart and that you can feel the love of Jesus! Amen. (this video captures the heart of who we are as a ministry and family combined)
 



God bless you and your family,

Transit Chapel 2016


 Dear Mission Partners,

About three weeks ago two things happened. First, we launched a local outreach Called "Break Out Support Group", reaching families who have loved ones that struggle with addictions. God has given us an open door to minister to these broken families and be the bridge for love, hope and restoration for each family. We currently have 12 families represented weekly, and growing.

Secondly, we have started back our weekly local outreaches. Since our Messenger Training's continues to spark revival fire in believers hearts, many who go through the training want to do outreach all the time. This is exactly what Messenger Training was designed for. We not only train believers and mobilize local churches, but the people are ignited for 24.7 mission to flow out of their every day life and this is exciting!

My friend Mic wrote this on our LGM Facebook Page. "Can't afford a Mission trip? $3.75 will get you onto the mission field!" What a great word. It doesn't cost a fortune to reach out to people. In fact, don't wait until the next large event comes to share the Gospel, you can do it today.


Worship on the Streets and Bus
We kick off worship right away and it continues to flow freely as God opens the doors in the streets and on the transit system. The bus drivers and passengers love it. We have people joining worship, receiving personal prayer right on the bus and they fill out follow up cards so we can re-connect with them within 72 hours. Everyone has different needs and not everyone is ready to surrender their life to Jesus. We love on them and make ourselves available to serve in any way we can so when that door opens up we can lead them to Jesus for real.

Prayer on the Streets and Bus
What happens when you openly pray for people in front of others? It is life changing for everyone involved! Public prayer isn't about being religious or better than others, its about loving people and being bold with your faith. Anyone who is a believer can pray with people and see God work miraculously anytime! People surrender their lives to Jesus, healing breaks out and God ministers through us prophetically; with words of knowledge and wisdom.

Declaration and Demonstration of the Love of God
Many people hear the Gospel and experienced the love of God with creativity during these outreaches. When the Good News is proclaimed, people are touched in their hearts and everyone has a decision to make if they want to live for God or not.

Quick Testimonies
A lady named Gladys - received prayer for her family to come to know Jesus Christ.
Two Atheists - One opens His heart for God to reveal Himself, and the other rejects any help.
A man suffered with bad dreams - we were able to pray with this man for these dreams to stop.
Prodigals - a young lady living in adultery, has her mind changed to be reconciled to her husband during our time of prayer with her.

Follow Up Ministry
Everyone we have a significant conversation with fills out a follow up card. They also receive a New Testament Bible. Within 72 hours these people are followed up with and plugged into local churches. We developed a resource guide, that helps us help those we are following up with. (*if you are interested in helping us with follow up ministry email us at info@letsgoministry.com)

Here are some pictures and a short video from our most recent "Transit Chapel" God bless you and continue to pray for us. For a harvest of souls in this generation!

Katelan, Mic and Jed - this was a very spontaneous outreach that changed hearts and lives in 2.45 hours

I was tazed but now I see

In the light of all the craziness going on in the world, I realized that I was once tazed, but now I see. I say that with all due respect to every viewer and reader. I know every situation has its own story but this is mine. When i ran from the police, they chased me and got me, tazed me and brought me to my knees. It was the best thing that ever happened to me and God used it to get my attention to what He was calling me to do. Cooperate with police, and more times that not, you will be alright.  Learn more in this video, and you can also order my personal story I wrote online today at www.jedsbook.com

The Best Fathers Day Ever


The Best Father’s Day Ever
by Jed Lindstrom (June 17th, 2016)

This father’s day is special
A reminder of the greatest Father’s Day
Ever …

My father was in the home physically
But not emotionally

I cried out for love and attention
Left feeling empty with little to no affection

Longing for my father’s love
There was none, he was lonely

I gave up my dreams
Running to drugs, sex and criminal activity

Trying to fill the emptiness in my soul
Only to find myself deeply wounded

The attention seeking wasn’t satisfying
What I found easy was hiding and lying

I couldn’t hide long
Love broke in and changed my life

It was my Heavenly Father
Hugging me tightly with Grace

My Father took my pain
Filled me with dreams and visions

The Greatest Father’s day ever
Was God sending His only Son Jesus

Nailing our sin's to the cross
Shedding His blood for our freedom

Now I Live to Love my Children
The same way He Loves me
Unconditionally and sacrificially

A father to the fatherless
And a defender of widows

Not just another day

Today is not just another day, its a day of hope and opportunity. 
Tuesday, March 29, 2016
Jed Lindstrom
5:38 AM
This morning I woke up with the word of God on my heart. My flesh was wanting to boast and lead me into another direction, but the Holy Spirit stirred me up quickly. I was moved to pray for my beautiful wife and children before they rise up and face the day. My faith prompted me to stand with my wife and kids early, and for this day to be used to honor my God, my Savior Jesus.
When I set my heart to honor God, and break through past my fleeting smallness, God becomes greater and greater in each living circumstance. As you can see from the pic to the right, I am serious about this thing. LOL
I need God to help ENABLE (give the authority or means to do a thing) me to LIVE my LIFE WORTHY (deserving effort, attention or respect) of HIS CALL. As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord!
2 Thessalonians 1:11 (NLT) So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of his call. May he give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do. 12 Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ.
God is the one who opens up doors in our life to walk through, but we need to walk through them! Here were the things that jumped out to me as i read this passage.
• power to accomplish
• All the good things
• Your faith prompts you
• Jesus is honored because how you live
• You will also be honored
• All made possible because of His grace
Early church believers in Thessalonica experienced great persecution. Their encouragement was His soon return (2 Thess . 1:7-8) and the promise that those who are causing such persecution have their day of judgement. There is a strong judgement on those who do not know God and to those who know about Him but willingly choose to close their ears to His call. This judgement comes from God, and I believe this is so because of the countless opportunities He gives everyone daily to acknowledge and live for Him. Thats only my opinion.
can you hear Him calling you now, do you feel the prompting of Jesus upon your life now, do not delay, respond now.
God help me today, to answer Your call upon my life. With every minute, every phone call, every email, every social media blast and every opportunity. May Your name be honored and glorified, in Jesus name amen.
God bless you and your family ,

Persistence Pays off

As I watched my daughter Annabelle persistently trying to get the basketball into the hoop, her hard work eventually paid off. I wonder how often we give up on a thing when we could be just one attempt away from breakthrough? My thoughts today are, why do we so easily give up? Ponder this and see what happens, you may be propelled to keep moving forward until you see what God promised come to pass.
God bless you and Your Family,

You may not get it right the first time but you can try again until you make it. Relate it how you want to. :)

I follow Jesus

I followed Jesus. I desire this the most. I have my eyes set on Jesus, and I love Him with my whole life. In fact, I have dedicated my whole life to following Him as closely as I possibly can. You may be asking why and what does that have to do with anything ... My friend, it has to do with everything.

I dont have much else to say, except what is most important to me, and that is I love Jesus and I follow Him. No filter. No hashtags. No labels. No edit. Just Jesus. 

I wonder if anyone will ever place eyes on this post, and be encouraged in their life, to follow Jesus and fall deep in love with Jesus. Life is Jesus. Born again through the precious blood of Jesus. Because of His great love you can live eternally with The Father. Amen. 

Jesus! :)

The Cry continues


Dear ministry partners,

Good News! Jesus has opened up the doors for us all over Barranquilla Colombia now for the 6th time since 2012! Jesus is still working miracles here in this beautiful Nation! As our ministry team met with many local Pastors and leaders, it was evident to me, that families all over the city are crying out to God for their children and families to be saved, healed and set free by the power of the Gospel. So my desire to walk with God and see their dreams come true! 

The Cry for souls continues! As we continue to respond to Gods heart to Go into the no go places with  the Gospel, many are crying out to God for their loved ones. Therefore we have much work to do, and we are so thankful for all of you who help us, may God continue to bless you. 

I began to pray and seek Gods heart for our time in Colombia early Feb 19th, just before heading into El Bosque. I knew this prison as a very broken place, where many live hopelessly passing times. It also hit my heart that these are the very people we are crying out to God for, to save, heal and deliver. As we arrived at the gates. 

We faced great opposition by some religious people outside El Bosque prison but God made a way for us to get inside. We ministered to over 75 inmates, and 30 men surrendered their hearts to Jesus! We gave out 40 copies of my new book "Break Out - A Criminal's Journey to Eternal Freedom". 
God continued to move and He took us to some new expanded territory we had never seen before. He took us to displaced children and families who are living in extreme poverty and brokenness. The backgrounds of their life would simply blow your mind. Please enjoy some pictures below and be sure to see more pictures here.
In Villa Nueva over 30 surrender their hearts to Jesus during a late night revival street meeting. The Holy Spirit was poured out in a very special way and hearts were changed. Many addicts and broken families are experiencing the reconciling love of God already. 
The Holy Spirit was poured out on over 75 inmates in the El Bosque prison. With many others in their cells all around us listening and receiving the Gospel I believe this was a time of refreshing for everyone!
Dianna and Daniel lead a lady to Jesus alongside two local Pastors. What a team effort and a picture of Gods heart wrapping this lady in the Love of God. She was also receiving inner healing as she is loved on by Dianna.
Ministering in Palermo Barranquilla Colombia to over 80 Children the beautiful Gospel. These children live in extreme poverty and having time with them radically changed my heart and life! Thank you to Leonardo for all His hard work here. We will be able to return with more support for our friend Leonardo.


Walking trails to get to families on this small Island. We have taken most of the day to spend here sharing the Love of Jesus praying with families and learning about their living situations so we can help during our next visit.
A picture to show you a nice place on the Island. These families will sell these plants they have grown and other things to make a living.

Elkhart Indiana School blessing



I would like to share with you one of many letters I receive requesting my new book Break Out - A Criminals Journey to Eternal Freedom. We have sent the books to these precious students, thanks to the support of some faithful sponsors. 

"Dear Jed,
I was really excited when I heard about your book and was looking forward to reading it.  As soon as it was available for pre-order, I ordered it and was excited it was being shipped soon thereafter.  When I got it, I could hardly put it down and read it fairly quickly.  While reading it, at various times throughout the book, a local school was on my heart.  

I kept thinking, "the kids at this school need this book."  I felt this very strongly and I knew the Holy Spirit was speaking to me about it.  The school he was talking to me about is a private school for troubled teens in Elkhart, IN where I live.  

It's a high school for kids who have been expelled from public schools, or who have been in legal trouble, or similar situations.  One member of the staff told me they're the most troubled teens in the state of Indiana.  It was really on my heart to speak with the administrators about the book and see if they'd let me gift the books to them to add to their curriculum.  After speaking with them and lending them my copy to read, they've said they love the book and would love to get it into the hands of the students.  

Their budget for curriculum is tight and it's still on my heart to give them the initial bunch for the first 75 books, which would cover the students and a few staff members.  They also have some more schools throughout the state of Indiana and are expecting to expand into surrounding states for the next school year, so this is an opportunity to reach some of the most troubled teens all throughout the Midwest!  

For now, if you can help me raise $375 we can get the initial bunch of books to this years class!  I'm excited about the opportunity and the school's administrators have also expressed excitement.  With financial support, we can do this!

Thank you!
Carol-Ann Abraham"


If you would like to donate books into the hands of people who cannot afford them, please donate here today. (please click on Break Out Book)


God bless you and your family,

Lay low

That I may live only for Your Kingdom purposes.
Come Holy Spirit. The Kingdom is Yours. The power is yours. The glory belongs to you!

Lay low with Jesus. He is the only One who can light up your day, and the path before you. Break the cycle of selfishness, through encountering the Holy Spirit. the presence of God, brings us to our faces, where we invest in the lives of others because Jesus loves them that much. When you get low with Jesus , He makes your vision clear. 

Phil 2:3-4 (NLT) 3 Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. 4 Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

God today, I lay down any selfish motives that cause me to please man. I step out in faith today, that I may love more. Especially You! My family and those I cross paths with every day. I decide to lay low at the feet of Jesus so I may stand firmly and know where I am going. I desperately need Your help God, Amen.

No selfishness involved at all (online dictionary)
self·ish - ˈselfiSH/Submit - Adjective: (of a person, action, or motive) lacking consideration for others; concerned chiefly with one's own personal profit or pleasure. 

Remaining humble in Gods presence always (online dictionary)
hum·ble - ˈhəmbəl/Submit - Adjective: 1. having or showing a modest or low estimate of one's own importance.

Looking out to the interests of others (online dictionary)
in·ter·est - ˈint(ə)rəst/
Noun: plural noun: interest - the state of wanting to know or learn about something or someone.

I woke up early today, and began to feel the presence of the Lord. I prayed early before my kids and wife woke up, and began to cover them and the day in prayer. As I sought the Lord, i felt Him breaking off of me, my old ways of thinking with His desire to love. 

So today i encourage you, to walk with God, lay low and love lavishly.

God bless you and your family today,

Jed Lindstrom

Passing through to stay

God passes through to stay

I saw the Lord passing through to stay today. He has a smile on His face. His love pours out through His eyes and His touch heals every sickness and every disease - a powerful touch. His hand touches your head, your hands, your feet and your back - your whole body inside and out. A waterfall from heaven is pouring out on your today, open your arms and trust His touch. God's desire is to stay a while, eternally. Every moment of every day He loves to help. May the Holy Spirit reveal this to us today, God is here. He cares about everything that's going on. God bless you today, and know that Jesus Christ loves you. -Jed Lindstrom

Walk with God

Encouragement for you today - walk with God  no matter what happens. It seems to me many give up on God and life  too fast and simply put themselves on the couch watching everyone else live but not living themselves. Could it be due to fear? Did you know that when yopu open up your life to fear, torment gets involved? Check this out ...
 
Read 1 John 4:8-9. NKJV - 8. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 9. We love Him because He first loved us.

The healing Love of God is so powerful it penetrates the hardest heart and releases revelation and heals the worst disease. There is hope for the hopeless and healing for the sick. Why is it though that we can experience miracles daily but not really walk with God?

Well, I must say, that's me, not really enjoying the daily walk with God sometimes. I am maturing in the Love of God righty now. My heart as been penetrated by the power of the Gospel. I am open to whatever He desires to do in me today. I know the battle in the spirit is real. The enemy coming against this faith, and belief I stand firm on.

I have decided I will not allow fear to shake me, I will stand firm on the word of God.

I believe the devil has been working overtime to try and stop us from living by faith, and walking in Love. Gods desire for me is to love Him and love others. So I need to fight against the fear that comes and tries to torment me and drag me away from loving God and people. Its a real battle I am willing to fight. Not alone though. I know I need more of God's war strategies.

God I ask you for Your battle strategies, and for those who are reading this right now. Flood our hearts with faith and love, and drive out all fear in Jesus name! Amen.

Today I want to encourage you, don't give up on the dreams and visions God has released into your heart and life. Let them flourish, let them come alive. Walk with God in confidence and boldness. You are not alone when you walk with God, He is your strength.

God bless you and your family,
Jed Lindstrom
