Hi friends! You may have noticed on our itinerary page that for most months, I'm scheduled just one weekend of meetings per month. I know for some of you that may be a little disappointing, considering we used to travel out three weekends a month on average. We maintained this schedule for over thirty years, and for fifteen of those years we averaged twenty nights a month, frequently two services a day, for over three hundred services a year. On top of that, we taught in Bible colleges Monday through Friday for over a decade, still traveling out three weekends a month for ministry.
Now that I'm in my 60s, it's no longer tenable to keep such a hectic schedule. What we're seeing in these meetings is that they're becoming regional events, drawing a sizable number of visitors from neighboring States, and in some cases, people flying in internationally for ministry. This helps us maximize each service to reach as many people as possible. I want to be able to minister to every person who comes out to a meeting for prayer, and our intention is to accommodate everyone. In order for me to maintain the strength necessary to give 100% for the congregation, we had to modify the number of weekends I travel out. I trust you all understand.
The good news is that the Lord has been incredibly faithful in each of these meetings with a dramatic display of His power, and we are extremely grateful for that, as I'm sure you are as well. Because of the limited number of engagements in any particular year, we try to schedule meetings in major regions throughout the US, and the few overseas trips I make a year are strategic. I want to keep traveling out as long as the Lord wants me to, and by scaling back the amount of meetings will help me maintain my strength. We are going for quality here -- I want to see a dynamic increase in total, complete and instantaneous healings in each meeting, and I am preparing myself throughout the month to give my all at each weekend's meetings.
Please continue to pray for our ministry -- we appreciate them immensely! And stand in agreement with us that the love offerings and monthly support continues to meet our needs even as we scale back the number of meetings. Again, the Lord has been faithful, but I recognize our support comes from you as the Lord directs -- so I thank each one of you who gives most sincerely!
Blessings to you all!
We are pleased to announce a new collection of five revelatory teachings from Joy Maloney on the life-changing subject of Jesus Christ. Who is this Person Christians the world over worship? Is He God? Is He Man? Is He really King of kings and Lord of lords? Where is He now, and is He coming back? Moreover, what happens when He does come back?
All of these questions are addressed in this series, providing dozens and dozens of scriptural proofs that Jesus is, indeed, the Son of God, and EVERY tongue will confess He is worthy to be praised! A great series for those who don't yet know who Christ is, and just as vital for His followers, showing throughout the Bible why we worship Who we worship.
We have received hundreds of e-mails requesting a Prophetic 101 series on MP3, and we are excited to announce the first teaching from James Maloney is now available! These powerful teachings are condensed to approximately thirty minutes and provide a wonderful addition to your daily devotions: on the way to work or cooking dinner, alone or with the family. We believe these teachings will help add to your faith and assist you in developing a prophetic spirit with a discerning heart, a listening ear, and a seeing eye.
"Nurturing the Prophetic Spirit" is now available in the online store! "The Testimony of Jesus" is now available in the online store!
It was on a cold, winter night many years ago that my wife, Janet, and I were attending a school of healing and impartation hosted by Randy Clark. I was a student at the Global School of Supernatural Ministry, at the time, hungry to see God move and heal people. How the Lord led me to that school and that meeting is a long story, but my previous experience of praying for the sick over the previous thirty years or so was an embarrassment. I don't know that there had ever been a greater failure in the healing ministry than myself. For decades I prayed for the sick and hardly ever saw anyone get healed. There’s a reason why I refer to myself as “the man formerly known as God's least anointed.”In this meeting a man named James Maloney got up to speak and began to share stories of some of the healings he had witnessed over his four decades in the ministry. My heart began to leap as he told stories of metal dissolving out of people’s bodies and God recreating body parts. This was the stuff of legends, and what I had been dreaming about my entire life. He then explained the panoramic seer operation, where God displays to him the thoughts and intents of the Lord’s heart for that person. As a result, faith rises, and they experience God, who makes them whole. This I couldn’t wait to see. James then calls up a little girl, who was smaller in stature than she should have been for her age. I don’t know the exact numbers, but she was maybe the size of a four- or six-year-old, and she was maybe five years older than that. Dr. Maloney then enters into a panoramic vision and calls out the girl’s past, naming the condition she was suffering under, which had caused her growth to be stunted. He declared that she was healed of this condition, and then he says, “God told me He intends to restore your stature as well.” When he said this, my wife and I were leaping inside with excitement, thinking the girl would eventually grow to a normal height; but then James says, “God just told me He intends to restore your stature right now.” At this point, I thought, “Did he just say what I thought he said?” It’s game on now! James laid his hand on top of the girl’s head, whose height is below his belt buckle, and said, “Everyone worship the Lord.” As he prayed, right before everyone’s eyes, this girl stretches out and grows taller! She rises not only above his belt buckle, but to a height of several buttons up his shirt. I knew in this moment not only would this little girl’s life never be the same, but my own life would be forever changed. Right then and there, I told God, “I will live the rest of my life to see You manifest Yourself in this way and touch people that so desperately need to be healed and made whole.” I’d just witnessed and seen come to life what I’d read about in the ministry of William Branham and others. I was so thankful for Dr. Maloney, who laid his life down to be used mightily by God to demonstrate the Father’s love to others. But I never could have anticipated what was to come when James said “Yes” to me regarding traveling with him. We came into agreement that God brought us together to impart and release an outpouring of faith onto the body of Christ to minister as Jesus did. My intention was to serve him in whatever capacity he needed, but he had something else in mind. On our first trip together, we checked into the hotel, and he pulled out his credit card, saying, “John, I have this.” He paid for everything, and not only that, he said, “Anything else you need, charge it to your room. I’ll pay for it.” I couldn’t believe his kindness and generosity toward me, and I was completely stunned at the way he was taking care of me. I already knew he was an amazing minister, but I didn’t know who he was as a person. I was overjoyed just to sit with him and attend to whatever he needed, but once the meeting started, I began to realize the depth of this man and how much he cared. He stepped up to the mic, and instead of talking about himself, he introduced me, saying how privileged he was to have me travel with him and what an anointed man of God I was. (Remember I’m a total failure at this point. Clearly I’m the privileged one here, and everyone knows this, but Dr. Maloney totally reverses everything!) Before he began to minister in the amazing, prophetic gifting the Lord has given him, he told everyone that I have this amazing, prophetic gifting and calling, and everyone was going to be blessed by it. He began to prophesy and gave remarkable words to the people, having me stand next to him and prophesy right alongside him. (You have to realize that, weeks earlier, I am absolutely nothing and just happy to carry Dr. Maloney’s bags, and now he’s having me prophesy alongside him! He tells me he honors me and the call of God on my life and treats me as his equal, even though I felt like I wasn’t anything like that. I cannot even wrap my head around any of this—it feels like a dream.) On the way back to the hotel room, he told me, “John, I want you to share and minister tomorrow evening.” So now I’m prophesying alongside the greatest prophet I’ve ever witnessed, and he wants me to speak in his sessions! I’m not sure how good or bad the message I spoke was, but all I remember is James telling me how amazing it was before everyone there. Then he had me stand beside him while he ministered healing and said, “John, put your hand on those receiving prayer, and I’ll put my hand on top of yours.” We ministered to hundreds that night. How can a person be so generous, and dead to themselves, that they treat a “nobody” like me with honor and as an equal? He established this honor of me, displaying his generosity from the very first trip, and this is what completely changed me inside. He demonstrated God’s love for me like I had never seen before, and he believed in me like no one outside of my immediate family had. I’m in awe that God brought me a spiritual father (and a great one at that) after my dad went to be with Lord. I was content to serve and carry bags, but Dr. Maloney had something completely different in mind, and he established this from day one. Over four years and countless ministry trips together, we’ve grown closer and witnessed some of the most amazing miracles imaginable. There was a man in Oregon, who was born without a tongue (he didn’t even have a trace of a tongue, as I personally looked inside his mouth.) James saw a tongue being created in the spirit and declared it. He teaches that when you speak a word of faith, the substance of faith is released; and when the person believes the words you have spoken, the substance materializes. Dr. Maloney encouraged this man to put his finger in his mouth, to search for a tongue, and after a time, he felt something present that was not there before. James said, “That's it!” and when he declared this, a newly created tongue appeared in this man’s mouth! Praise God! John 21:25 explains that Jesus did so many miracles, and other things, that the whole world could not contain the books that could be written about them. I feel much the same way regarding the things I have witnessed traveling over four years with Dr. Maloney. A man, who didn’t have a hamstring, had a new hamstring miraculously created on the spot. Many people, who’ve had their thyroids removed, received newly recreated thyroids. People suffering with bad hearts, who had pacemakers installed, had the pacemakers dissolved and their hearts healed instantly. A man with a surgically repaired plastic shoulder, that he could not move well, received a completely recreated shoulder with new bone! This is just a few instances of what I’ve seen God do, and much more, through a man who answered the call and laid down his life for Jesus and others. Over the years, I have seen the sacrifice to bring the Kingdom to people in desperate need of an encounter with a personal God. James has spent weeks and months away from home, living in hotels, on planes, and doing it with joy and not complaining. He lives to give and is the most generous person I’ve ever met. He treated me like a son and honored me when he barely knew me. People still ask me to this day, “Why you? How is it you got to be friends and travel with Dr. Maloney?” I have no answer other than James is kind, generous, and saw something in me that nobody else did. He has a true father’s heart and treats me as a son. I’ve been transformed by his extreme generosity and kindness toward me. God sent me a precious gift in James, his amazing wife, Joy, and his son, Andrew, who have been so supportive and kind to me. Dr. Maloney has been sent as a gift of God to so many people, and so many have been healed, received prophetic words, and had personal encounters with the Lord as a result. The Maloney family has been radically generous with their lives and poured out so much over the years to people like you and me. We have an opportunity in this season to give back, as they are in greater need than they would ever admit personally. I can attest, from over four years of traveling with them, that they have never taken a manipulative offering or coerced people to give. They honor others and would never do this. We’ve mentioned on our website the current trials the family is experiencing and the medical issues Dr. Maloney has had. As a result, there have been many hospital and doctor bills. The financial issues have been compounded by the fact that he’s been told by doctors he can’t travel until fully recovered, thus eliminating the main source of revenue the family has to live on. They’re very humble and hate to ask anyone for financial help, so I’ve taken it upon myself to inform you of this situation and humbly ask for your help. Now, we anticipate this to be a temporary situation. James is getting stronger daily and is eager to resume traveling once again. The Lord is hastening the recovery, and James is itching to get out there, even to the point of ignoring doctor’s orders. But in the meantime, until that happens, we need a financial miracle to make this possible. I wouldn’t be asking you to give out of your heart if the situation were not what it was. The Maloney family over the years has lived off the barest, minimal salaries, not wasting any money, in order to pour the given finances back into the ministry. They’ve given away so much, knowing it’s better to give than to receive, and have lived off the minimal requirements. This family has never wanted money to control their lives, or dictate the way they conducted ministry, and they’ve always been content with the offerings they’ve received, from whatever people gave in the offering bucket out of their hearts, and not out of manipulation or compulsion. It is in this spirit that I make an appeal: out of your heart. I would not be a faithful spiritual son of Dr. Maloney and the family if I asked you to give any other way. I am not particularly good at this, but I just wanted to share my heart, and the truth of this situation that the Maloney family needs a financial miracle at this time. I’m asking all those who have been blessed by the Maloney family and their ministry to consider this and give cheerfully out of your hearts. Whatever level of offering you feel led of the Lord to give is important and gratefully received. Any amount is immensely appreciated, but I am asking that those of you in a position to give substantially, please do so as the Lord directs you. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much! From the bottom of our hearts, on behalf of the Maloney family, we thank you for your support over all these years; and we are so thankful we could play a part in each other’s lives. It is a great privilege for us to be ministers of Jesus Christ with you and to make Him known together. We count it all joy!

We're very excited to announce that the audiobook versions are now available for Dancing Hand Vol. 1 and 2, The Panoramic Seer, Overwhelmed by the Spirit, and The Lord in the Fires. These were professionally recorded by a Grammy-nominated audio company in Tennessee, and they sound fantastic! The voice talent is top notch and really caught James’ tone perfectly—funny where it needed to be funny, serious where it needed to be serious. It’s awesome to hear the audiobooks, even if you’ve read the books, because you can pick up on the nuances of the text with a real person’s voice reading them aloud. They even did a good job pronouncing all the foreign words! :)
The expense to produce the audiobooks was nothing to sneeze at, especially coming at the time that James isn’t traveling out, but we’ve been receiving dozens and dozens of e-mails asking for these books to be released in an audio format, so we took a step of faith and contracted to produce them. The audiobooks are available on our website as well as Audible.com, if you’re already an audiobook fan.
We are asking all of you to avail yourselves of these new audiobooks as you are able in order to help offset the expense of producing them, as well as to help us in the time that James has to take off from personal ministry. We will gauge producing audio versions of Ladies of Gold and the rest of James’ books based on the response of these first five, so please do take advantage of these audiobooks.
