Sid: One new humanity, One New Man which makes the full dwelling place of God. You get it? Then in another words, with Jewish people that come to the Messiah there is a special spiritual DNA and with Gentile people that come to the Messiah there is a special spiritual DNA. But when the two merge together you get what Paul calls the complete dwelling place for God. So that’s the deal. He started with the Jewish people He’s going to end with the Jewish people. The job of the Jew was to reach the Gentile. The job of the Gentile is to reach the Jew so we can form the full dwelling place of God in the Spirit; and we’re having a little hint of this full dwelling place in the Mobile Revival. It’s called” The Revival at the Bay of the Holy Spirit and Pastor John Kilpatrick is Pastoring that and Nathan Morris is the Evangelist. Nathan is thirty-one years young and when he was about sixteen as the son of a pastor he rebelled he went into alcohol, into drugs. He had a girlfriend, had the wrong friends but his parents did not give up and they prayed for him. And on his twenty-second Birthday he went over his parents’ home, he pulls out a CD from the revival in Brownsville, Pensacola Florida. He puts it on and literally he says for hours the fire of God was upon him. He was pinned to the ground and he heard the voice of God and God said that if you go from me today I will never call you again. It was such a holy moment that he couldn’t even speak to his parents when he saw them after that. But the next Sunday he was in church because his father was a pastor of a small church and while he was in church his father gave an invitation. He came down the aisle. A women prophesized over him the same words that he heard from God when the fire of God struck him. But then that fire of God it started coming off of you at that moment Nathan. Tell me about it.
Nathan: Yeah, I went into twelve months of seeking God.
Sid: But wait a second before you even did that what happened with your alcohol addiction, what happened with your drug addiction? What happened with your girl friend? I mean what happened with all of your friends that knew you as a party guy?
Nathan: Yeah, I had to travel back down to south of England, in Cambridge where I was living and when I was driving down that motorway from an encounter with God I realized and I knew that every bondage, every addiction in my life had been broken. I mean I was driving down there and when I got back to my home town I began to share with my friends and at first they laughed and said oh will give you a few weeks. But you know, I was so hungry for God, I was like a desperate man. I knew for the first time in my life that God was more real, His presence, His fire was more real than the air that I breathe.
Sid: What, just out of curiosityI hear this terminology a lot “hunger for God?” How did this play out in your life? What did hunger for God translate as far as your actions during the day? What did that mean?
Nathan: Hunger for God Sid, is a desperation that comes out of your spirit man. Everything within you, it’s like when the Bible says the deer pants for the water so my soul longs after you. From the moment I woke up until the second I went to bed, all of the cry within me would saying “God I want another encounter with you”. I want to encounter your presence. Lord, I use to read my Bible, and I say Lord I want to see the wonders of God. I want to see, I want to experience all that Jesus has for me. And you see Sid, God when God wants to touch your life, when God wants to take you a deeper place. There is no short cut. You have to go on the journey of a hungry and desperate man. The cry must come out of your belly because when you do that many times it’s in the journey. It’s in the pursuit of God that God will deal with many issues in your life. A lot of the things and the issues and the mindsets and the ways that we live our life, it’s when we begin to pursue God that the Holy Spirit, like He hovers over you. He begins to speak to you and to deal with this and to deal with that and then suddenly and with my life Sid, everything that God has done in the ministry and revival and in the campaigns where we’ve seen thousands. It has been in the suddenly of God. I go on this journey, like Elisha going after Elijah the mantle. It takes you through places in your life where He will strip you, He will take away the things the issues the sins in our lives and He brings us to a place of an encounter with God.
Sid: Now you started speaking at your father’s church. Now they had, it was a very small church they only had about seven people or so and as I understand it, people from all over England started coming. What was going on at that church that caused people to come from all over England?
Nathan: Well, my Dad he had a small church. He had about 150 people but the Lord said to me. I want you start a meeting on a Saturday night. Now in Britain Sid, a lot of people when they have mid day church on Sunday morning they don’t really come out to church on Saturday evening. And my Dad said to me, he said son if you’re going to do a Saturday night meeting, I promise you, if people come then it’s a move of God. And I started with seven people. But from the first meeting the fire of God fell, the power of God just entered the place and I recognized it Sid because this was what has falling on me. This is what had touched my life and miracles began to happen and within twelve months. People were traveling four and five hours coming from all over the UK packing the church out. People use to stood around the perimeters. The meetings would go about 2:00 AM. There would be people laid out on the car park. I use to have ushers on the door because people would encounter the presence of God so powerfully that they would literally be in the doorway and never making it into the church sanctuary and literally it was from the moment we began till twelve months in God just…and you know Sid, people in Britain, you can get from one end of the country to the other in eight hours. So for someone to drive four or five hours six hours to come to one night meet service in a little church in water town Durum, that’s where the church was. It was a miracle, we didn’t have radio shows, we didn’t have television, we didn’t have courses. It was all word of mouth.
Sid: It sounds like what happened in the days that Jesus walked in the flesh. He didn’t have texting. HAHA
Nathan: We didn’t have any form of advertisement only the power of God and the miracles of God.
Sid: Speaking of the power of God. When God told you to go to places like Africa and held campaigns. One of the first ones you went to you had some doubts about what am I doing here God and God literally spoke to you to you. Tell me about that.
Nathan: Sid I was in the middle of Sierra Leon, a war torn nation. This place had been devastated by Satan. I mean the war that they experienced was barbaric. I was in the field and you know with a limited budget the Lord had opened the door and the people in the area were shocked. Over 10,000 people had arrived in this field. I stood there and I didn’t have no Bible, college degree or any theogian certificates and I was a young guy and I stood there and there were 1,000s. they were carrying people in on beds. I mean I stood there for a moment and it dawned on me, I thought Jesus they think I know what I’m doing. You know that I don’t have a clue. Lord when did I think this was a good idea? What am I going to do, you know almost I tell you it was like the hand of God arrested my heart and he said to me. It was like he was saying wake up son and he said to me this was never your idea. It was mine, now get up there and open your mouth and I will fill it. You know that night Sid we had over 6,000 decisions for Christ. We saw death and blind being healed and when they were coming up my Assistant, he was saying Nathan, blind eyes have being opened. I was more shocked then they were and they were shocked. I was more shocked then anybody. I was like Lord, Lord what is happening and from that moment to this moment Sid we’ve ever will look back. We saw that year of the ministry in 2006 we saw over 30,000 people; Moslems, Hindus give their lives to Jesus Christ. And from that moment we’ve never looked back to the Glory of God and it was not because of me or anything that I can ever do but all because of the blood of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.
Sid: Now, when your parents observe, because at the meeting I went to in Mobile that you were conducting your parents were there. When your parents see you up there speaking and see these awesome miracles and these people giving their life to God, I wonder what do they think, what do they say to you?
Nathan: Well, I know that, you know when I’m with Mom and Dad I am just their son, you know. I’m just there boy and they treat me just like that. And I like that, that keeps my feet on the ground and that’s where they belong. But, I know that when my Dad prayed, you see Sid I’d been with powerful men of God. I have had the great privilege to sit around tables and to meet with mighty mighty men of God but let me tell you, my dad is one of the most prayerful men that I have ever met.
Sid: Your Dad is your hero.
Nathan: My Dad is because I have seen him in a live the life of a prayerful man. Not on the pulpit but behind closed doors. When I was a young boy, I use to think it was normal. My Dad would get up before the sun rises and seek the face of God and the Lord said to me very early in the ministry what I am about to do is not because of you but because of the faithfulness and the prayers of your family and your father.
Sid: Nathan, I want the fire of God that so transformed your life to transform the life of everyone that’s listening to us right now. And you did a special DVD at the great revival that is going on “The Bay of the Holy Spirit Revival” in Mobile for an impartation of The Fire of God.” And this is what I envision Nathan and I envision people putting this DVD on, laying on the floor and every time you say “Fire” the anointing of God is going to hit them.
