Eye Witness Accounts Of Jesus Changing Lives

06/28/21

So many Divine Appointments – so many Divine Encounters! One right after another, as the Lord just keeps bringing in people from all over and off the streets to be healed spiritually, physically, and emotionally. Cancers ridden, injured limbs healed, and best of all many baptized in the Holy Spirit and Fire receiving Life and praying in their spirit tounges for the first time. All in public where many believers and unbelievers witnessed it all. God is certainly moving in this little Surf Shop. All we do is wax up our boards (prepare His house) and let the Waves (His Holy Spirit) move and groove how He wills.
Come on in and join us = Get On Board with the Lord and enjoy the ride. Go with His flow. Holy Flow

Praying for a family.
Once again the Holy Ghost brought in folks from all around to be ministered to. Some needing healing physically, some emotionally and some just a fresh new wine poured out from above. Incredibly blessed and humbled to be used by God in such a beautiful way each day. We are EKKLESIA!

Another Brother brought into the Kingdom of God! I’ve known Zac and his family for quite a long time. Zac’s brother ‘Storm’ lost his life awhile ago in a jet ski / boating accident. I remember giving Storm a Bible and talking with him regularly about Jesus. When his mom came into the shop after the accident, she told me he always kept that Bible at his bedside. I have no doubt Storm is in paradise with Jesus. Well today, his brother Zac came into the shop holding Bible and needing to speak with me. To make a long story short, we prayed over Zac and he gave his life to the Lord and received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and then we walked him across the street and was baptized in the Gulf. He’ll be coming back soon and we’re going to baptize his whole family! This is LIFE! We aren’t in the Surf Business. We’re using the Surf Business as HIS business and seeing the fruits of our labor. It’s not about selling stuff, it’s about bringing the lost into the Kingdom of God through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

This older gentleman came in feeling weak and moving slow. After we prayed for him, he felt lighter and younger. Then he started to JUMP AROUND! This is the power of the Gospel!

07/17/21

Today, two young men gave their lives to Jesus today! We saw Jesus heal several people and many more encounter Him!
We are called to live the Kingdom Life! Where love is demonstrated and Jesus Christ is King!

Testimony from a Surf Shop:
Meet Kayla & Ryan & little ‘Coleman Joseph’ they say is their miracle baby.
Last July 2020, Kayla and Ryan were led to the shop by the Lord. I met them and knew the Lord had brought them in. We started talking, and I discovered that they were deeply hurting because they wanted a child and Kayla had two miscarriages. I showed them a book that my friend wrote that might give her peace. I then said I believe that they would have a child and asked if I could pray with them. They said yes, and I took them over to our Prayer Cubby and sat them on the Surfboard Prayer Bench. As I most often do I anointed them with oil and put the Talit around them (Prayer Shawl) and began to pray. Holy Spirit fell on us and they began to weep. As the Lord led me, began to speak over them and said that they would receive a child before the end of the year. Also, I heard the Lord say she (Kayla) had a spirit of fear over her, so in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I commanded it to leave! Exactly at the moment the spirit was rebuked and lifted off Kayla, we all felt it AND out of all the songs that come on over our music system in the shop the song shouted ‘FEAR doesn’t have a chance when I’m standing in Your Love’ by Bethel! It was SO powerful!
They returned home and had a procedure to have a child but normally it could be up to a few years before it would work. She got pregnant two months later after we had prayed! Here’s their newborn son little ‘Coleman Joseph’ three months old and perfectly healthy baby boy.
God Is Absolutely Good! 🏄‍♂️🌊💪⚔️🔥🔥

Testimony from the Surf Shop:
Meet (from L to R) Lacey, Denise, & Cassandra. The Lord led Denise to the shop months ago and had a POWERFUL encounter with Jesus. She was struggling with a couple things and something seemed to be missing in her life. She believed in Jesus but something was missing. I explained the baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire in depth showing it in scripture and believed that the Lord brought here to the shop not only to be delivered from what she was struggling with but also to receive the baptism of Holy Spirit and Fire. She returned with her friends to let me know that she’s praying in her spirit language (prays in tongues) and as been on FIRE for Jesus ever since. Her friend ‘Lacey’ when she heard about Cassandra’s testimony, she knew that she felt the Lord tell her to come here because she was feeling stagnant in her walk with the Lord. They all came in today and once again the Holy Spirit and FIRE came in with power and rocked the place while customers watched and couldn’t help but sense the power of HIS presence, and Lacey was ignited. All I can say is that you had to be here to see what happened.
This is Kingdom Business – church in action out in the open for all to see. I believe there were several customers in the shop and coffee shop not expecting to get an extra dose of expresso! 😎
God Is Absolutely Good! 🏄‍♂️🌊💪⚔️🔥🔥🔥

This is ‘Joe’. I call him Joseph. Joseph has a hard and difficult story like many. The Lord led him to the Surf Shop early this morning as I was praying and anointing the grounds in preparation for this morning’s ‘Gathering at the Surf Shop’. I never know what the Lord has in store for me when I come in, and actually wherever I go. Scripture says,
A man’s heart plans his way,
But the Lord directs his steps.
Proverbs 16:9
Joseph lives in his truck and works jobs as they come. He says since being here in Panama City Beach, he’s been able to find odd jobs here and there. He came into the shop seeking to speak with the Pastor of the Surf Shop. I guess that would of been me ‘Daddy Surf’ 🏄‍♂️🌊 Although I had much to do to prepare for this morning’s gathering, I heard the Lord (received a Rhema word) speak and remind me of Luke 10:38-42 with emphasis on vs 41, 42
41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” To make a long story short all he needed was a cup of coffee, and a place he could have lunch if he didn’t get paid today for a job he was working. However, the Lord desired he hear the Word and I told him he had a name of great significance and spent time with him to share the story of Joseph in the Bible (Genesis 37 – 50) Joe was amazed and the Holy Spirit ministered to him in a mighty way. I may never see Joseph again, but I do know without a doubt we met for a specific reason and the Lord will continue to do things his life.
I will end with this: God is completely changing the church. The way most way Christians see it. Understand what He’s doing and saying in these last days and hours. Be prepared for Water 🌊 (Holy Spirit) & Fire 🔥 It’s about to erupt like an atomic explosion 💥. Stand strong for the SHAKING is near!

Kingdom Business at the Surf Shop:
Mom contacted me to be baptized with her little baby girl. She also brought her whole family – Grandpa, Grandma, husband and other daughter. I sat with them all and showing them in scripture and teaching them about the baptism of Holy Spirit and Fire – (the Holy Spirit 🌊was in them) we prayed and the Holy Spirit 🔥 fell upon them as other customers watched in the distance. It was POWERFUL! Then we all headed out to the COURTYARD and I baptized mom and her little girl.
This is what we do. This is who we are.
Advancing God’s Kingdom here on the earth! 🏄‍♀️🏄‍♂️🌊💪⚔️🔥🔥🔥

Testimony from the Surf Shop:
Daniel’s Story – meet Daniel. NO DOUBT WHATSOEVER – Daniel was led to the shop by the Lord! He actually came to the coffee shop to study with his laptop and books. As he waited for his coffee, he pondered over to the surf shop side, and much to his surprise, he saw our Surf Bench (we have two and it’s where we pray for folks who the Lord sends our way). Daniel had a dream about a surfboard bench, so he grabbed all his stuff and set up in our Prayer Cubby under the stairs, sitting on our surfboard bench and began to study. That’s where I discovered him when I came into the shop. Robin (our employee) went over to talk with him and ask what he was doing and that’s how we knew the Lord sent him here. Robin told me that he wasn’t a believer in Christ and was being fed a bunch of junk in college. I immediately went over, introduced myself and we began to talk and wanted to know about his dream. Y’all know me, I don’t hold no bars back (John the Baptist on the beach) and started speaking (prophesying) Truth, Life and destiny into him telling him all those so-called psychoanalysis / man made teachings couldn’t bring him to who he truly was in Christ. The Holy Spirit consumed me as the Lord spoke to Daniel through me. The words, all according to scripture, stunned Daniel to the point that he was basically frozen and tears welled up in his eyes. To make a long story short, it was about :30 minutes or longer and then I asked if I could pray with him. I told him it was NO COINCIDENCE that it was a GODINCIDENCE that he had a dream about a surfboard bench and was sitting on the one in our shop. The Lord had brought him here because HE loved him and today was the day of salvation for him! He was tearing up the whole time as other customers watched (it’s how the Holy Spirit works – HE draws folks in and the see HIS work and encounter HIS presence most every time HE moves mightily. It’s such a beautiful and amazing thing!) I went and got a Bible for Daniel, however, he just held it and stared at it. Then he asked if I could pray for his anger. I asked why he was angry, and he said that every time he would open up a Bible and try to read it, he would get angry and rip out the pages! Yep, I knew right away what had to be done. I called another employee (Warrior in Christ – Lucas), told him everything that was going on and we got Daniel settled down to pray for him (deliverance and salvation). We asked if he wanted the anger (a dark spirit) to leave and give his life to the Lord and Daniel’s response was ‘Hell yeah!’ Both Lucas and I laughed at his response. There was a lady shopping with her daughter nearby when it all went down, and boy did it go down! The spirit of anger was cast out and immediately afterwards Lucas led him in the prayer for salvation – Hallelujah give praise to our God Almighty Yeshua! The lady who was watching, grabbed her daughter and hightailed it outta there when she saw what had happened – she knew it was the REAL DEAL! Another one brought into the Kingdom of God!

Testimony from the Surf Shop:
This is ‘Habib’ & ‘Angelina’ .
Speaking with them is my Good Brother and Fellow Warrior in Christ Joshua Rice and in background is our employee Katie Taylor
The Lord led Habib and Angelina to the shop. I encountered them as they stood in front of the keyboards we’ve got set up in the middle of our shop for Spontaneous Worship. I asked them if they were artists (musicians) and they said that they were. Habib plays instrumental music (he writes his own music) and Angelina writes and sings her own music. Both are very gifted.
You know me – I began to speak into their lives as the Lord led and told them that the Lord had brought them in for a reason. To make a long story short, they were leaving California, like so many other folks, and coming to Florida to start anew, and I prophesied what the Lord was giving me about their new life and what the Lord was about to do in their lives. They believed it was true and that it was what was in their hearts. However, there was an issue that had to be dealt with and that’s why the Lord had brought them in. Angelina was a believer but had some things the Lord wanted to deliver her from and do.
Habib wasn’t a believer but was searching for Truth. He had many questions, so I explained, in detail and all according to scripture, the questions he had and it all made perfect sense because it was all Perfect Truth – JESUS.
Jesus healed Angelina emotionally and Habib came to know Jesus. Both received the baptism of Fire 🔥 and began speaking in the spirit. They’ll be coming back to the shop for prophetic worship!

The Lord never ceases to amaze me, and I’m so humbled and honored to do this work HE has assigned me to do. It certainly NEVER gets old!
This is Andrew & Claire visiting from Virginia. The Lord directed their steps into the shop at exactly (as it always seems to be) the same time I just happened to drop in for a minute. Right away I felt a strong impulse from the Holy Spirit and knew they were here to be prayed for. I immediately went across the store and confronted them and introduced myself and told them exactly that! That the Lord had brought them in and that this was HIS house and Holy ground. Claire began to cry as His presence was so powerful I knew something was about to happen. To make a long story short, I led them both to our prayer bench, got my Talit and anointing oil to prepare to do His work. They were Catholic, so everything I spoke about, I showed them and referred it all to scripture as I explained what the prophetic was and the Sword (Word) of the Spirit (Prophetic).
I also shared what the Lord was saying about them (Words of knowledge) and they were astounded that everything the Lord was speaking through me was spot on, particularly, because I never met them before. Claire was there to be healed not just physically but also emotionally because she had been through so much. Her entire femur in her leg had to be replaced because of a tumor they had found. She had been through quite a lot to say the least. Her husband, Andrew, on the other hand also needed to be healed emotionally, particularly, delivered from fear, anxiety and depression. Jesus healed them both – it was powerful! Also, they both received baptism of Fire 🔥 (I read and explained it to them in scripture in detail)
Andrew couldn’t stop thanking me, but I told him this is what I live for! I still am so overwhelmed every time it happens and so grateful to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I love Him! I love Him! I love HIM indeed! Hope y’all enjoy this story and are inspired to go be the hands and feet of Jesus. Living the Kingdom life. 🏄‍♂️🌊💪⚔️🔥🔥🔥 

October 2021

Another absolutely wonderful day that the Lord hath made! So many Divine Appointments and it’s all just as new as the first time it all began. God is so absolutely good. This is Carson & Lilly . The Lord led them here (they even said it was so – that their footsteps were directed by Him) to the shop this morning. As soon as I saw them , I felt the Holy Spirit move. I watched and waited and continued to work until I heard the Lord say, ‘Go tell them I have a word for them’. They had gone over to the coffee ☕️ shop side and were waiting in line, so I approached them, introduced myself, and told them exactly what the Lord had told me. They believed me. I then told Lilly what the Lord was telling me about her and she was astounded because it’s what she did and was spot on. I knew the Lord had more for them but HE hadn’t let me know what it was just at that moment, so I told them that I would like to pray with them when they were done eating. They said certainly and were very delighted! Make a long story short, I got my Talit and anointing oil, sat them both on our surfboard prayer bench and began to pray and prophesy what the Lord was saying and what and how he was about to do with them both – powerful to say the least! Also, I explained to them and showed them in scripture about the baptism of the Holy Spirit 🌊 and Fire 🔥!
We prayed and they were wrecked! Weeping as Fire 🔥 fell, I even felt the temperature around us rise – it was amazing! They both were believers and Lilly had been baptized in water but Carson hadn’t. We filled our tub outside and baptized him while folks who were there to eat lunch watched in amazement. God connected us for a specific reason which will occur in the near future. What’s also cool, and a GODINCIDENCE, is they had gone to Church International one time and loved it! We support the Robin Youngblood Bullock Bullocks. Keep on keeping on for HIS Kingdom- Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

October 2021

Good Monday morning Y’all! I’ll get up a beach report shortly. Until then, here’s a short testimony. This is Art & Tina. They are dear friends that I met when they started to come to our small ‘Gathering at the Surf Shop’. They are on their way back home in Georgia after spending a few months here in PCB, however, they will return Spring 2022. Tina is spirit-filled and the Lord has given her many dreams and visions. She carries a strong spirit of peace and you sense the anointing on her when she’s with you and shared the things that the Lord shows and speaks to her and her many testimonies. She has been bringing her husband here in hopes that he would be baptized in the Holy Spirit 🌊 and Fire 🔥.
Well yesterday, Sunday morning, they showed up to attend our Gathering but didn’t know we had canceled it because we were attending my friend’s meeting in Grandridge. They were the only ones who came. Now as it always is – never a coincidence only GODINCIDENCE , I just happened to come into the shop for a minute to square it away for our staff for the day. We sat, talked a few about many matters concerning the Lord and Art said he desired the baptism of Fire 🔥 but didn’t understand what it was exactly. To make a long story short, I shared – all according to scripture – the word in a way the Holy Spirit has gifted me with and it made perfect sense. He understood it! So with that said, I said since we’re here let’s go over to the Surf Bench and pray and ask Father God to baptize you in the Fire 🔥. He wanted to so we went to shop side (it was closed so we had it all to ourselves) got my Talit and anointing oil and we asked Papa God to baptize Art with the Holy Spirit 🌊and Fire 🔥. It was SO BEAUTIFUL to see this couple tucked up underneath the Talit and when the Fire 🔥 came upon Art, well let’s just say it was simply beautiful. His wife cried with joy because she had been praying for this moment for a long time.
By the way Art said his legs felt like led, and he could barely walk 😊. Life is SO beautiful with Jesus, Jesus nothing but JESESU!  🏄‍♂️🌊💪⚔️🔥🔥🔥 Daddy Surf

January 2022

Good Sunday morning Y’all – it’s another Absolutely Beautiful Day that the Lord has made. Let us be glad and rejoice in it! Wow – Wow – WOW!
Yesterday was simply amazing to say the least. Had such a powerful encounter with Holy Spirit during ‘Gathering at the Surf Shop’, particularly, when we took Communion. His presence remained well after we finished and had to open our doors for business. Why?! HE prepared the shop for some powerful Divine Appointments. What’s so beautiful is HE draws people in and the shop and barista bar filled up. #1 The picture you see here is Jessica. She was led to the shop to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire. We met at the front door and immediately I knew the Lord had sent her here. She also had a lot of things she was dealing with and needed Jesus to set her free which she was, and also her body needed healing. Jesus completely healed her body and all pain and depression was stripped off! She left a whole new daughter restored and delivered and baptized in Holy Spirit and Fire! What’s the really amazing thing is I have never met her and we’re connected to people all the way up north in Dalton Georgia – coincidence, I don’t think so – GODINCIDENCE for sure!
#2 A group of folks traveling in the USA dropped in for coffee – not! The Holy Spirit led them here. Travis (husband from China) now living in America with his wife from Russia (they met in China where his wife was working) and their very good friend ‘Angela’ who lives in Brooklyn New York.
Jerrod Schonfeld who is part of the Mr. Surf’s Ministry Team was sitting at a table with them in the coffee shop. Little did I know he was sharing the gospel with them – they were not believers. He spent a good while with them and they all politely sat there and listened. Jerrod invited them to give their lives to Jesus, but they nicely declined. The whole time this was happening, Holy Spirit kept highlighting them to me, particularly, Travis. After they left, Jerrod told me what was going on. I saw them all still outside in the Courtyard – they couldn’t leave. Why? Because Holy Spirit wasn’t done yet. Holy Spirit said, ‘John go talk to them!’ I said about what? Jerrod already shared the gospel. Holy Spirit said just go, I’ll do the rest. Go and talk with the Chinese guy. So I asked Jerrod what was the guys name and he said Travis. I obeyed and went outside and called out to Travis. They all turned surprised. I just was blank forward and said hey guys, the Holy Spirit has asked me to come speak with y’all, particularly to you Travis. They were kinda shocked to say the least. I briefly explained who I was and I was just doing what the Lord asked. I told them I knew they didn’t believe but that was okay. All I know is he wanted me to come talk with y’all and now I’m waiting to see what He wants to say, especially for some reason to you Travis. If you could see the look on their faces. They looked at me like who is this guy and what the heck!
Travis’s wife said well why Travis and I said I don’t know. Then Holy Spirit said tell Travis he works with computers. Now get this, I know nothing about these people except their names. They hadn’t even told me about where they were from or where they were going. I knew nothing! I wanted to say what Holy Spirit told me but in my mind I was arguing with Him. What if I’m wrong Lord? I’ll look like an idiot. Then Holy Spirit said ‘INTELLIGENCE’ tell him I’ve given him that gift and he’s to use it for me. And when he does. I’m going to blow him away with what I will do with his life!
They just all sat there looking at me because they could tell I was talking to the Lord. I just looked up and told Travis exactly what the Lord told me. You could see immediately in his eyes he was taken back and then he just smiled. His wife and Angela on the other hand were quite shocked. I said that’s the word He gave me for you. I then asked Travis what he did and well to no surprise, he worked in the software industry with computers and his wife said, as well as Angela, that he was very intelligent. Then Holy Spirit just downloaded on me and for quite awhile we talked and they all asked questions. They wanted to know this Holy Spirit who I explained was part of the Triune God;
Father, Jesus (Son) & Holy Spirit
Angela really started asking questions. It was so beautiful and so appointed. I absolutely love doing His work. We all said our goodbyes and I know for certain the Lord opened a door that morning and their journey with Him was about to get radical – I told them so and they were so open and excited!
#3 Last encounter was with a soldier (an Army Diver) who was sitting in the coffee shop. I myself was a Dive Med Tech in the Navy so it opened up our conversation and led to talking about the Lord. He wasn’t a believer. However, because the Word relates closely with warfare, the Lord has given me the gift to speak to military people because I correlate the Word with how it pertains to the military and warfare. To make a long story short, we sat, talked, spoke about his family and who he (his name is Tom) is in Christ. He had been to churches but never heard the Word explained this way. I also told Tom about our (the Soldier’s Psalm – Psalm 91) and how powerful it was and that it was part of my daily declarations and prayers. We have a small book ‘Military Edition Psalm 91′ that we give out when Holy Spirit leads us to. I gave him the book and we prayed. After the prayer, he looked up at me and I could see in his eyes he knew Holy Spirit was there. He said that’s powerful and thanked me and off he went.
God is SO absolutely good! Nothing can compare to doing His work here on this earth. I will end with this – when I spoke yesterday morning at our Gathering, the Fire of the Holy Spirit fell on me and had me release a word for those sitting there. They all knew it was from the Lord. I believe it’s a Word that must go out, especially, in the churches for God’s people. It’ll tick many off, but I’m not here to build up crowds or a following. I’m called to ‘SOUND THE ALARM’ and let those willing to listen understand what’s going on and what’s coming. For me to live is Christ and to die is gain. I’m just doing what the Lord asks me to do. Hope y’all enjoyed the testimonies and they encourage you. Love y’all and appreciate y’all’s prayers and support. Y’all have an absolutely beautiful day and be blessed – Daddy Surf

January 2022

So I’m outside cleaning up the yard, and this young man ‘Joseph’ shows up because he has an appointment with my wife to go over Solar Panels. My wife wasn’t feeling well and had to postpone the appointment, however, it was with Jesus Christ that Joseph had an appointment. I just began to talk with Joseph about what he wanted out of life? where he saw his future? Then Holy Spirit just downloaded on me and I began to talk about him (Joseph) and tell him all about things that he was facing and going through. Joseph just stood there frozen because I had never met him or talked with him before. I began to tell him about a Father who loved him and would never leave him and the Holy Spirit told me he knew Joseph had a rough life and I even told him things that had happened in his early family life. Holy Spirit spoke to me loud and clear and the more I spoke what He was telling me to say, the more Joseph was completely shocked. I never knew or met Joseph in my life, but the Lord allowed me to download all the information about him, so without a doubt, Joseph knew it was absolutely real.
To make a long story short, I shared sound Truth – not watered down, tickled up or seeker friendly words – I gave Joseph meat! It’s what he was hungry for. He said that he had people try to push Christianity on him and I said brother nobody can push anything on you. The Lord just wants you to know he created you because he loves you, he did everything for you and it cost you nothing but just say yes Lord I believe! Turn from your ways to His and enter into the Kingdom life. I said let’s pray. As we prayed, Jesus held Joseph and Joseph encountered the Lord for the first time. It so beautiful and was that simple. Joseph just stood there frozen, eyes a little damp from tears and a hunger to begin to walk with Jesus. He will be coming by the shop in a few days and we’ll pray again and go over something’s in the Bible and also let him ask more questions. I’m sure he’ll have many.
Matthew 9:35-38
And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
My name is JOHN – Tony died a long time ago. Just as Abram’ name was changed to Abraham??, Jacob’s to Israel, Saul’s to Paul.
The Lord met me in my Secret Place and said three words: SOUND THE ALARM
From there He led me to a Spirit filled church where an elder came up to me and said, ‘The Lord told me to give you these words: “IT’S NOT TOO LATE ” and “PUT IT ON A SHELF “
From their the Lord led my wife and I to north Alabama to an Apostolic House
A prophet prayed for me, and as he did, the Lord gave him a vision of me. I was very small STANDING AT / in front of a HUGE DOOR. He said that was all.
My wife and I developed a strong relationship with the Pastor, his wife and several people at that house. I believe the Pastor (who has a powerful anointing) imparted what the Lord had given him to me. The Lord also began to connect us with other powerfully anointed men and women of God – some Generals. The connections keep coming and I am beginning to see the Lord building something, which I believe is for ‘Such a time as this!’ The Lord is giving me dreams nightly most of which I record. Divine Appointments followed by apostolic power are occurring daily, many of which I don’t share.
In short I believe we are here – the beginning of the ‘Days of Noah’ – why because a dream the Lord gave me recently referred to scripture: Hebrews 11:7
For anyone who reads this now you know.
I am SOUNDING THE ALARM
IT’S NOT TOO LATE – get in the Ark now! (Hebrews 11:7)
The time is short and running out (shelf life) – PUT IT ON A SHELF
Get in the Ark now (Salvation through Jesus alone) IT’S NOT TOO LATE
You have this moment and possibly the rest of today. Tomorrow may never come.
Call on His name – believe in your heart that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and Life.
He became sin for us to set us free to live eternally with Him now and forever more!
Love y’all and so much appreciate y’all’s prayers and support. See y’all at the shop or maybe on the road somewhere.
Have an absolutely beautiful day – JOHN

Spring Break 2022

This morning during my quiet time with the Lord, I began to plan out my day. As usual, I hold my plans loosely, because I know the Holy Spirit will lead me (Pv. 16:9), so I always expect the unexpected. I very lightly heard the Lord say, He wanted me to do a Live Beach Report, but down at the County Pier. I normally do the morning beach report from just down the street from our house, rarely do I do it from the pier. Deep down inside, I knew the Lord had an appointment – didn’t have a clue but just knew something would happen.
Upon leaving the house I first headed to the shop, and as soon as I walked in, the Lord had an appointment with a lady sho needed encouragement and some weight broken off her shoulders. We prayed. Jesus refreshed and healed her from the stress and oppression that was attacking her. She wept and felt great after the encounter. I got up and was going to head to the St. Park (where I usually go) to do a Live Beach Report. As I got in my truck, once again, I heard the Lord say very lightly, I told you to go to the pier. I knew for certain He had something He needed to do and I was just the vessel. If you watch my Live you’ll see me talk about it. I even point out the individual I believe was the appointment – he was! His name is ‘Ian’. Ian is the one next to me (John -Daddy Surf & Lucas)
I’ll try to make this short: Ian was parked in front of me. I was asking Holy Spirit if he was my appointment – no answer – so I waited. Ian backed up and parked across from me remaining there with some friends in another car next to his. His friends left and once again I asked Holy Spirit if he was my appointment. Holy Spirit then told me to go over introduce myself and tell him that he was hurt by the church and that wasn’t Me (Jesus) tell him I (Jesus) didn’t do it, and I wanted him (Ian) to come back to me. I did exactly what Holy Spirit said. Ian was shocked! I continued to speak truth to him and share deep (all scriptural) things. Ian had heard some of what I shared, but mostly from a religious and legalistic spirit. During our conversation I mentioned he (Ian) had a passion in computers, particularly, designing games. Keep in mind, I never met Ian up until now. Ian was completely overwhelmed wanting to know how I knew all this because every word was true! I told Ian, Holy Spirit began this encounter early this morning and He led me here so I could give you His words.
Make a long story short: Ian walked away from Jesus because of a religious spirit but Jesus never walked away from him. It was time for Ian to have an encounter with Jesus and be baptized in the Holy Spirit. He was and was completely overwhelmed. BTW – he drove all the way over from the pier to the shop to finish what the Lord started. I didn’t know if he would show up but he came in right behind me. His remarks to us before we prayed for him were
‘Heck Yeah! I want this Encounter – Jesus!
This is just the beginning – it’s going to be EPIC!

Spring Break 2022

As it always happens when I step into the shop to do some work, the Lord has His work set up as was in the case of this beautiful family here on Spring Break vacation from Nashville. It began just as a simple conversation which led to the Holy Spirit revealing why they had come in to eat. They were here to eat breakfast, however, the Lord had them here to eat bread from heaven.
To make a long story short, the Lord had me speak prophesy into their lives. I covered them with the Talit, anointed them with oil all while the store was packed with people seeing, listening and encountering His presence as He moved over and among us. Both moms, particularly the one with the cap, wept. The mom with the cap said her body had not stopped tingling since we prayed! The little girl (Rachel) was drawn into the midst of us while we prayed. At the counter, she looked up and casually said – like it was nothing special,
‘You know the Holy Spirit is here. He’s Jesus.’
Then she casually walked away.
(Mat. 18:2-3) And Jesus called a little child unto Him, and set him in the midst of them. And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Please keep us in your prayers as we are led to do His work. Spring Break breakthrough is this coming week, and know that the God will move mightily. #beaches #blessed #thankful #florida #beach #surfshop #jesus #beautiful #HolySpirit

Spring Break 2022

Luke 1:39-45
In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a town in Judah, and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and ublessed is the fruit of your womb! And why is this granted to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold, when the sound of your greeting came to my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.”
Note: John (the Baptist) was the first to recognize the long awaited Messiah ‘Jesus Christ’ while in the womb!
So this just happened in the Surf Shop:
This is Jessica & Joseph (Joe) The Lord led them here this morning. The moment they came in, they said they felt the presence of the Lord. I was engaged in a conversation with a friend and the Lord highlighted Jessica to me while she was shopping. I didn’t know why. After speaking with my friend, I realized Jessica had left – or I thought so. I looked around the coffee shop and outside but didn’t see her. As I went back into the shop, she and her husband were checking out. I said, much to their surprise, ‘Oh there you are! I was looking for you!’ She and her husband were taken back at first until I explained who I was and everything to them. I didn’t realize Jessica was pregnant with their first child, a girl, ‘Westlyn’. They are here in PCB for their Babymoon. I knew immediately they were here, including little Westlyn, to be prayed for. They are Christians but didn’t know fully about the baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire which is written throughout scripture. We talked about it in length and we all sat together for prayer. I covered them with the Talit and anointed them with oil and the Lord began to speak through me as I prophesied over them and little Westlyn in Jessica’s womb. As I did, Jessica wept and the baby ‘Westlyn’ was leaping inside her womb. It was amazing! Jessica said it was crazy because she felt little Westlyn dancing inside her womb! All this occurred as the presence of Holy Spirit overwhelmed all of us! There were a lot of people in the shop all watching as this all happened.
I love this life! Living and walking with Jesus every moment of every day!
Hope y’all enjoyed this testimony.
God is Absolutely Good!

Testimonial from a Patron

Testimony from the Surf Shop: Got this message from Matthew who came into the shop one day. The Lord sent him in!
– Hi John, I met you in the beginning of January after my family and I were guided by God to your shop. I wanted to thank you again for praying over us.
That day changed a lot for us.
My wife, Amy, had been thinking to herself that she wanted to get a bible but she said to herself that she wanted something specific in what it looked like. It blew her mind that not only did you give her a bible, it happened to have exactly the look she wanted.
You prayed over me and my upper back pain. It didn’t immediately disappear but I felt chills and tingling in that area. Over the next few days the pain left and hasn’t returned.
We returned the next week and I bought a skim board and shirt. You werent there but I snapped a picture to send you.
Four years ago, God came to me and told me to buy a sailboat which was what brought us to Florida. We finally found one in Mexico and are living on it now.
Thanks again for everything you do to spread the Word of God.
Matthew Kennedy

Spring Time Testimonies

This family contacted me because their daughter wanted to be baptized in the Gulf. We were recommended and I made arrangements for them to come to the shop because before a baptism, I always want them to understand what the complete meaning of baptism is.
As the whole family listened, at the end of our conversation, the father heard and understood so much more than what he learned about in church.
He said I want it also (baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire) – so we gathered together and Yessiree – it was done in the Mighty Name of Jesus!
Grandma (the Father’s mother) was praying for this moment. And yes afterwards we walked them across the street to be baptized in the Gulf. It’s no coincidence that the Lord has placed our Surf Shop directly across from a Public Beach! God is SO Absolutely Good!

Spring Time Testimonies

Testimonies from the Surf Shop Mr. Surfs Surf Shop – The Lord never ceases to amaze me each day I step into the shop to work for the day. I’m fortunate to have a incredible staff that can attend to the business side while the Lord has me attend to His side. He sends dozens of people a day to hear His word, receive prayer, healing and lots of them receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit 🌊 and Fire 🔥. We hand out Bibles, books & devotionals, feed folks physically and spiritually and many get baptized in our little tub outside in the ‘Courtyard’ next to the shop. An ‘EKKLESIA’ a church without walls six days a week – Monday is our Sabbath, so we’re CLOSED every Monday.
My wife and I never could have imagined that the Lord would bless us with such an amazing ministry !
Pic #1 – I was standing at the counter when this group of young ladies approached me, and one asked if I remembered her and her family. Of course I didn’t because I meet so many people, and she said that I had prayed for her dad last year and that he was very sick and getting worse and not able to work. They were going through a very hard time and I approached them and said the Lord had sent them into the shop.
Make a long story short, she said her dad was healed and was back to work full time with no problems – HALLELUJAH Thank you Jesus! We all talked at length about a lot of God things and one of them was tearing up heavily – I knew the Holy Spirit was moving, so I said we all need to pray. The one who was tearing up said she wanted to hear from the Lord. I believe there were a couple who hadn’t received the baptism of Holy Spirit and Fire, so I also mentioned and explained it verifying it to them in scripture. Yes, sure enough Holy Spirit consumed us as we prayed and all of them were crying like babies! The shop was full of people watching and encountering His presence whether they knew it or not. That’s why it’s so cool!
Pic #2 The two young men and two girls also were there and received the same. What was a GODINCIDENCE is that my dear Sister and Warrior in Christ ‘Joy Bassett’ who has a strong prophetic anointing just happened to walk in while all this was going on, so I grabbed her to pray with all of us and she delivered a Word to each of them from the Lord while tears were falling as they all encountered Jesus’s presence. One of the two young girls said she was there last year with her family and I prayed for all of them also.
I’m thinking of changing the name of the shop? Instead of Mr. Surf’s Surf Shop maybe we should call it:
Mr. Surf’s House of Prayer – Home of God’s Eternal Wave of Glory! 🌊🔥😎

Spring Time Testimonies

Get ready people! The Tsunami 🌊 that’s about to slam the coastline and push in across America will usher in a new thing.
Many will not ride the Wave that the Lord brings in. The Seeker Friendly and Religious ways will no longer work.
The bricks will come down and either erupt into a brand new light of God’s glory exploding with signs, miracles, and wonders or have a form of godliness lacking the power there of.
Even the people will look different. The unexpected will be fiery followers of King Jesus. Going where no one has gone before. Pioneering a new thing and new way for God’s Kingdom here now and the one to come. It will be the least who become the greatest and the greatest who will become the least.
This is Gilbert and his sister Elisha. The Lord sent them my way as Robin and I were praying, anointing and blowing our shofars at Rick Seltzer Park and the beach. Gilbert could barely walk because his foot had been crushed and he was in severe pain. I immediately knew he was a Divine Appointment, and the Holy Spirit led me to him. I not only prayed for his foot, but also prayed into his spirit to ease the pain and suffering that was weighing him down. While I was praying, his sister came up behind me and put her hand on my shoulder. Gilbert cried like a baby as Holy Spirit wrecked us all. People were walking by and watching in amazement as we prayed. Gilbert was healed both physically and emotionally and his spirit was lifted to a new high. We all rejoiced!
They’ll be coming Friday night to our‘Gathering at the Surf Shop’ in the COURTYARD at Mr. Surf’s. Come join us at 6:30pm. Come expecting the unexpected and if you have a need, the Lord will provide it according to His will.

Spring Testimonies

What does it look is it like when you’re living life in alignment with the One who created you – spirit to Spirit. Led by Holy Spirit each and every moment of every day.
(beach pics from early morning hours)
I began my day by checking the surf and doing the Daily Surf Report and Word for today. I set my Talit up, anointed with oil, and blew the shofar. Shortly thereafter, I went surfing with my wife and prayed in the spirit the entire time I surfed.
Upon arriving in the shop I immediately noticed a girl standing out at the counter. The Lord highlighted her, can’t explain it, it’s just how it is when in complete alignment / in tune with the Spirit of the Lord. I spoke with her and her mother and brother as the Holy Spirit led. Every thing I spoke about them was true. I had never met them. The young kids were completely blown away and the mother wept like a little child. They knew nothing of the baptism of Holy Spirit and Fire, although they all were in church and were Christians.
I prophesied over the daughter and son, commanded the fear to leave the mom all in the name of Jesus Christ, and asked the Lord to empower them with His Holy Spirit and Fire! He did and it was radical! This all occurred in the center of the surf shop while a slew of customers in the shop and coffee shop observed every bit of it and knew it was real.

Springtime Testimonies

My neighbors Kyle & his girlfriend Emee and their dog ‘Apollo’.
It was a Sunday early morning and I was praying and looking out my window. I saw Kyle and Emee outside by the stop sign, and I felt the unction of Holy Spirit to go talk with them. I went outside and approached them and asked how they were doing. They said they were doing okay, and we talked about life in general. I asked each of them how they were doing with their relationship with Jesus. Kyle said good then kinda looked at Emee. Emme said she didn’t believe and didn’t have a relationship. It was because the church she was exposed to gave her religion not Jesus, so she had gone astray. Sadly it’s the same way with many still to this day – that’s a whole other subject.
I said that’s okay girl, God’s been following you all along and has never and never will give up on you! She just looked at me, then smiled because she knew that I was being real with her.
I shared some deep Truth with her and Kyle. They both listened intently. Emee said that she had never heard of much of what I was telling her and gave clairity to a lot of unanswered questions. She was searching for truth.
Come to find out the reason they were at our house was they were looking for ‘Apollo’. He had gotten out and they hadn’t seen him in all day. They were worried and scared because he was there baby, and we live near some very busy roads. I had been briefly explaining / teaching them about the Kingdom/ living life in the fullness of Christ, so I took immediate action of the situation. I said let’s pray. Not only ask the Lord that they find Apollo, but that the Lord knows our hearts and always answers when we ask according to His will. I said the Lord knows how much you love Apollo and how He desires to reveal how real He is and how much He loves you. Much more than you do your little Apollo. So let’s even get specific with our prayer and ask Him to bring Apollo home within thirty minutes. We’ll, He did – ten minutes short – twenty minutes later, Apollo showed up at their house!
They were flabbergasted! Totally blown away! It gets better than that.
As we were outside last Friday evening at ‘Gathering at the Surf Shop’ the presence of the Lord was so powerful! We saw healings, strongholds broken off and a baptism. And this happened:
Kyle & Emee just happened to be riding by the shop to go get dinner at Wendy’s down the street. Coincidence – NOT – GODINCIDENCE – ABSOLUTELY YES!
I saw them and ran out to the parking lot to call them over. I said come on in and check it out. They really didn’t want to. Then I looked them right in the eyes and said remember ‘Apollo?!’
They said yes, and that they were telling everyone what had happened. Well I said then come now! Come to the Altar! Render your hearts, kneel at the Altar and set your request before the Lord.
He will come and He will touch you, deliver you, and answer the call in your heart. They both got off their bikes and came to the Altar to pray and set their requests before the Lord. Particularly, ‘Emee’ a prodigal daughter came back to her Father. I had my dear and close friends Pastors Josh Boyett & Cody Crider Boyett come pray with them. It was so beautiful and my heart was leaping with joy. They hugged the Pastors and me before they left. We’ll be discipling them regularly. Particularly since they live three houses down from Lib and I.
BTW – we have an Altar like no other.
It’s a Surfboard Bench! Pretty cool 😎

Spring 2022

Testimonies from the Surf Mr. Surfs Surf Shop Shop: As it happens most often when I come to the shop, the Lord has a Divine Appointment/s set in place upon my arrival. I was riding my bike praying over and around the property. As I pulled up to the backside of the shop, the Lord impressed upon my heart and spoke, ‘I’ve got someone in the shop. This was very late afternoon near closing time and we hadn’t had a customer in a couple hours. When I was out front there was nobody there, but now when I came around from the back, a car was in the parking lot. Before entering into the shop, I asked the Lord why He had sent him. All I heard was the word, ‘Healing’.
I walked in and this guy ‘Patrick’ was at the register checking out. I went straight up to him and introduced myself. He said we’d met before. I asked why he was here and he said he was visiting his father. I said how is your father’s health?Patrick said fine. I said how’s your health? He said off and on then pulled up his sleeves (he was wearing a long sleeve shirt). He had black tapped bands running down both arms to his wrists. He said he was born with a disease that attacks his ligaments and tendons. He has a hard time with handling things, particularly his camera – it’s what he loves to do and I believe does for a living. I told him that the Lord spoke to me and said someone was inside to be healed. I told him that he wouldn’t have to worry about it any longer because the Lord had brought him in to be healed. Patrick just smiled then said, ‘I’ve been waiting for this for a long time!’ Make a long story short, as I most always do, I sat him on our Surfboard Prayer Bench, had him take his shoes off and anointed his hands and feet with oil, and put the Talit around him. I asked Jesus to heal Patrick. It was done! Jesus healed him. Patrick came out to our skim competition the next day to take pictures. Notice something? NO STRAP BANDS ON HIS ARMS! He got to share his testimony with hundreds of people on the beach at the event. He also mentioned to my wife that when I prayed over him the day before it was different. He felt power go through his body. I guess I prayed for him a year ago but not for healing. God Is Absolutely Good (GIAG) Hope y’all enjoyed this testimony – it’s Truth!
Y’all have an absolutely beautiful day.

Spring 2022

This girl came up to me as I was walking out the shop. She said, ‘HEY,JOHN!, I was hoping I would see you. She has been here all week and missed me each time she came in. I didn’t recognize her because she has all her hair back and looks SO much healthier and different. She came to the shop last year to pray with me. She had cancer and it wasn’t good. Actually, she was told she didn’t have much time to live. Here she stands as evidence Jesus Christ the King of kings and Lord of lords has the final Word – because He is the Word! She’s completely healed!
Glory Hallelujah give praise to our Lord!

Spring 2022

This beautiful family from Nashville aren’t new to the shop. I’ve prayed with them before. However, come to find out this time the mom was sick, so I said let’s all go pray. It was all led by Holy Spirit. I began to give them deep prophetic teaching before praying. Told them about the revelation of taking ‘Communion’ which was given to us on Passover by Johnny Taylor which he brought in from the Holy City of Jerusalem. They were absolutely amazed at the revelation of what the Lord was speaking to them. I then asked if they knew the Baptism of Holy Spirit and Fire and if they prayed in the spirit (spoke in unknown Tounges as at Pentecost) they said no. After explaining it all, they had complete understanding and wanted to receive it. So we prayed together, I laid hands on them and asked the Lord for them to receive it – the Fire 🔥 came! They all said that the Prayer Bench they were sitting on felt like it was on Fire 🔥! I know for fact – mom is healed in the Mighty Name of Jesus and they’ll be praying in the spirit before the week is over! So be it Amen!

Spring 2022

This couple here for Bike week, were led to the Surf Shop. They watched me as I was praying over a family at the Surfboard Prayer Bench with my Talit and anointing oil. The Lord kept them in the shop! How do we know this because as they were checking out, our internet went down so they hung out, and when I was finished praying and speaking with the family I had been with, I went over and talked with them. Two Christians on Fire 🔥 for Jesus. However, come to find out they needed prayer and to receive a word from the Lord. Was it coincidence – NOT – it was a GODINCIDENCE! We sat at the Prayer Bench, Talit and anointing oil and all; Set their requests before the Lord; the power of the Lord came upon us and as I prayed out scriptures it was EXACTLY what they were desiring to hear from the Lord over the situations!
What’s so beautiful is that as this happens most often, the shop begins to fill up with people and they observe all that’s going on and encounter the power of His presence, some not even knowing what it is. This is what I live for. This is what He has me doing. God Is Absolutely Good! (GIAG)

Spring 2022

This family contacted me because their daughter wanted to be baptized in the Gulf. We were recommended and I made arrangements for them to come to the shop because before a baptism, I always want them to understand what the complete meaning of baptism is.

He said I want it also (baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire) – so we gathered together and Yessiree – it was done in the Mighty Name of Jesus!
Grandma (the Father’s mother) was praying for this moment. And yes afterwards we walked them across the street to be baptized in the Gulf. It’s no coincidence that the Lord has placed our Surf Shop directly across from a Public Beach! God is SO Absolutely Good!

Spring 2022

Another absolutely beautiful day that the Lord has made. Let us be glad and rejoice in it! This is Kim and Guy. The Lord sent them to Destin to establish an Ekklsia business establishment. We talked at length (over an hour) and the Lord had me share deep prophetic teaching, and how to set their business up as an Ekklesia. They knew of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit 🌊 and Fire 🔥by reading the Bible, but unfortunately, the church they attended never taught (an explanation of) about the significance of what and why it’s an integral part of baptism. During our conversation, the Lord also revealed ‘healing’ – one of them was there to be healed. In short, we prayed, they received the baptism of Holy Spirit and Fire, and Guy who has a disease that attacks his lymph nodes, was healed. CHECKMATE! Jesus Christ of Nazareth ALWAYS wins! So many more Divine Encounters throughout the day.

Spring 2022

This is Pam. The Lord brought her to the Surf Shop and as she was shopping, see saw me praying and speaking with another couple in the store. She approached me and asked if I was the owner and if I also knew her friends from Dalton Georgia, Johnny & Leslie Taylor. I said yes and we talked about everything happening here and abroad. She asked if I could pray for her. As what I normally do. I sat her on the Surfboard Prayer Bench, covered her with the Talit and anointed her hands and feet with oil. We asked Jesus to heal her brother along with some other requests. Holy Spirit’s presence was overwhelming! We took this picture, hugged and said our goodbyes.
I received this message from Pam this afternoon:
Hey John, thanks for the prayer yesterday which was Wednesday. I called my sister because we did not have time to stop and see her and my brother Joe because we were running so late and she said no problem I told her that we had prayed and she said that Joe was miraculously healed and I just thought you would like to know that!
The Lord NEVER CEASES to blow me away each and every day. Oh how I LOVE JESUS! My King, my Lord and my Savior. Hope He’s yours also!

Spring 2022

So ‘Daniel’ and ‘Trevor’ with SOLID Surfboard Co. out of Southern California stopped the shop to show us some of their boards. Little did they know that the Lord had set the up for a Divine Appointment and an encounter with the Holy Spirit. I got to share my testimony with them, told them how we really weren’t just a Surf Shop , but an EKKLESIA for God’s Kingdom here on earth. I got to teach some deep truth with both of them. I invited them to come sit on our Surfboard Prayer Bench. Covered them with the Talit, anointed them with oil and prophesied with the words the Lord gave me. The Holy Spirit fell on them, and as always happens, it’s the most beautifully exciting thing to observe when they encountered His presence. I guess I can say: They’re both on Board with the Lord and ready to Ride the Tide of the Holy Flow with Jesus. When Daniel left, he contacted me later. What was so cool is that he didn’t thank me for the business (purchasing and buying their boards) , he graciously thanked me for sharing the Truth and praying for them! They’ll be coming back in about six week with more boards, so I’m sure I’ll here how the Lord has been working in their lives.
Please keep me in your prayers. I really do greatly appreciate, and need them.

Spring 2022

Yesterday I met these two beautiful people (Ken and Karen) here on vacation from Gainesville Georgia. I’ll be heading to Gainesville most likely this Fall to do an outreach at a Skate Park. I’ve been wanting to head that way for awhile. It was no coincidence we met. It was a Divine Appointment! We chatted for some time. The Lord had me share some deep prophetic teaching with them. We prayed for healing and the Lord had me release prophetic words over them.
As soon as I got home this came across my messenger:
‘Thank you so much for praying over Ken and me today. This has changed our lives and is exactly what I’ve prayed for. Your ministry is reaching so many and is a blessing. Please let me know how I can help you with the GainesvilleGA skatepark ministry. God Bless!’
God is SO ABSOLUTELY GOOD AND AMAZING!

Spring 2022

So this guy ‘John Faircloth’ was led to the shop by the Lord. He even said he didn’t know why but had to come in to see me (Daddy Surf). I didn’t remember him, but he knew me and told me he used to buy surfboards from me when he was a kid (he’s 28yrs). I could tell that he had had a rough life and was basically on the street. We talked about how he had got there and about making bad choices led him to jail, the street and so on. He told me that God was mad at him and had kicked him out of heaven. Can you believe that!? I told him – plain and simple it was a lie. That God never stopped loving him and I shared Truth. We talked at length and I asked him if he was ready to make Jesus Christ his Lord and Savior 💯 % = ALL IN COMPLETELY! He said yes. We sat him on the Surfboard Prayer Bench. His feet were sore from walking on the streets, so I had him take his shoes off and I washed his feet – although it was Jesus in me doing it. I covered him with the Talit, anointed him with oil and John gave his heart wholeheartedly to the Lord. It was POWERFUL! The Lord had me speak (prophesied) over him to be ready and stay intentional with his walk and that the Lord would begin to move mightily in his life. Immediately, the Lord did. A customer at the register noticed him and I praying. This customer handed me a $50 bill and asked me to give it to John! The Lord was already moving! We took him out to the ‘Courtyard’ and John was baptized in water. We got him a meal and gave him a Bible and my employee Robin took him to the ARK where they help people who are trying to get their lives back on track.

Spring 2022

Just when I thought my day was ending, the Lord sent me these two (Gunner & Gabrielle) kids – POWERFUL TESTIMONY!
To make a long story short after spending about :30+ ministering and teaching them deep Truth in scripture and EXPOSING AND DEMOLISHING all the lies of the religious and legalistic teachings of an institution that the Lord is about to SHAKE to it’s foundation they both encountered Holy Spirit for the first time. Gabrielle walked away from church and turned her back on God because of what had happened to her in the church she went to – it would shock you and I got so mad that I had to apologize to the Lord because I almost spoke out a bad word. Gunner just went to go but knew there was something more, and stopped going. I know the churches they went to.
They both said they learned more in thirty minutes than they had all their lives in church. They both will be coming to the shop to be discipled. I am so overwhelmed at what the Lord is doing in and through me that there are times I just weep.
So many hurt, lost and sick!
The harvest is ripe and the Lord is seeking out workers for the ‘Great Awakening! 🏄‍♂️🌊💪⚔️🔥🔥🔥

Spring 2022

Testimony: BROKEN CHAIN/S
Only God! This is ‘Mark’. Mark walked into the shop just as we were opening and I was leaving – Coincidence: not GODINCIDENCE: For sure! He walked up to me and asked if I had a hammer because his chain broke on his bicycle. I didn’t have one, but Robin (an employee) did. Then Mark looked at us and said, ‘I need prayer’.
He said, ‘God must be trying to tell him something because this was the second day his ‘chain broke’ (get it – Broken Chains) in front of our sign and he looked up and it says ‘Drop in for Prayer’.
This time he crashed hard. Mark has had a hard life. In fact he should be dead. Just a couple days ago he found his friend dead in his house. He had overdosed. Mark knew about Jesus but didn’t know Him personally. I spent some time explaining a lot of things about the Lord. He listened intently. I then asked if he wanted to surrender to the Lord wholeheartedly 100%! And what it actually meant (no lukewarm or seeker friendly religion) He wanted to.
I led Mark in prayer and asked the Lord to baptize Mark in the Holy Spirit, which He did. Mark wept and afterwards said he felt much lighter (the REAL CHAINS WERE BROKEN!) We then walked Mark outside and I baptized him in water in the Courtyard while customers watched as they ate breakfast. People were amazed as they watched. Here’s the crazy part, I noticed Mark had some serious scars on his stomach and asked if had been knifed. He said no but almost died because he had a hernia and ignored getting treatment and then his appendix exploded and he had a massive hernia which pushed a large portion of his stomach into his testicles. He was at sea working and he should have died. However, the doctors only temporarily fixed him up, and Mark said he needed more surgery because he was getting worse again. He’s out of work and on the street and doesn’t have the money, so I put my hands on his stomach and prayed and asked Jesus for healing. What’s crazy is, I could’ve sworn I felt heat in my hand!
Robin fixed his bike with a ‘CHAIN BREAKER – see pic)
God blows my mind every day all day with Divine Encounters like this and it never ever gets old!
God is So Absolutely Good! – Shalom
🏄‍♂️🌊💪⚔️🔥🔥🔥

Spring 2022

Testimony:
So I’m in a rush to get to the grocery store for my wife (Mommy Surf 🏄‍♀️) because she was cooking dinner and needed an item. She said to stop by the beach and check out the surf 🌊 to see if it was building. As I got to the beach, I realized I had wanted to set out my Talit and blow the shofar over the Gulf / waves 🌊 and Panama City Beach earlier but hadn’t done so yet. The Lord has assigned me as one of the Watchman over PCB and the beach, so I regularly practice this while declaring the Word of God over the beach and city. Upon arriving I saw there was a couple standing up on the Lookout walkway where I go to check the beach. I walked up onto the Lookout area and set it up while playing my prophetic music. This couple watched me kinda wondering what I was doing. I asked them if they didn’t mind what I was about to do and explained it to them. They smiled and said they knew what a Talit was and while we talked, I heard the Lord say this was supposed to happen because the man was sick and needed to be healed.
I told them it wasn’t a coincidence that it was a GODINCIDENCE that I was there and asked if the man was sick. He said yes. He had cancer. I then told him the Lord brought me there to heal him. They said they believed it. I covered them with a Talit and anointed them both with oil, and we prayed – it was powerful 🌊🔥 Holy Spirit and Fire! I truly believe, as well as them both that Jesus Christ healed him from cancer. They were here on vacation and said that this was the highlight of the vacation. I believe the Lord sent him to PCB to be healed! Glory Hallelujah our God is Absolutely Good!

Spring 2022

So this just happened:
This is Kim a regular customer and good friend. She is a Messianic Jew. She just had one of her hips replaced and is scheduled to have the other one done in a few weeks. She couldn’t stand or walk without her cane. Just recently at Physical Therapy, the lady who was working on her pulled her leg out which was not supposed to happen and made Kim’s condition worse. She was in severe pain and could barely walk upon arriving to the shop. Make a long story short, I sat Kim down on our Surfboard Prayer bench, covered her with my Talit and anointed her with oil. We prayed and Jesus COMPLETELY HEALED both of her hips! No pain, no cane,and she left walking out with both hips healed. Glory Hallelujah – we give all the praise and glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Spring 2022

So this is how it is when you wait upon the Lord and only move at HIS Word and in accordance with HIS will:
I (Daddy Surf 🏄‍♂️) knew that today is a critical point in place and time for this season and in the coming forth of what is unfolding / the Door/s being opened.
Today is Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4)
I inquired to the Lord that I wouldn’t make any plans today, and I was leaving it up to Him where and when He desired me to be. I didn’t know if I was supposed to be at church or a church, on the beach or what. All I knew is that I was going to have breakfast with some dear friends who are in town, and we were going to celebrate our ( my wife and I) 33 year Anniversary – WRONG!
‘We make plans, but it’s the Lord who directs our paths, so we are to hold on to our plans loosely’ (Proverbs 16:10)
The Lord changed it all up to accommodate HIS Kingdom work to be fulfilled this Pentecost Sunday.
My employee called in sick leaving the shop short handed, so I had to come in, but knew immediately it was GODINCIDENCE to have me here!
Upon arriving, I setup my music outside and prayed and anointed the property and building. As soon as I finished, the Lord sent the first Divine Appointment.
We’re not supposed to open for another hour and a half and a couple came in to shop. I let them in early, then boldly told them the Lord sent them in to answer a prayer – either they or someone they knew needed healing. The man began to weep and almost passed out! He couldn’t believe it – he knew the Lord was speaking to him. It was concerning his son. I can’t disclose the details because it’s confidential, but to make a long story short, the Word went out over his son – I, as well as they, believe he was healed and not only that both of them were baptized in the Holy Spirit 🌊and Fire! 🔥
Shortly after this, the Lord sent another group of young ladies to receive deep prophetic teaching and to be baptized in Holy Spirit 🌊 and Fire 🔥!
It’s just begun – we’re SO BUSY and the Spirit of the Lord is moving mightily in this place. It’s absolutely amazing to see what HE is doing. Please keep us in your prayers. Y’all have an absolutely beautiful and amazing Pentecost Sunday. – Mommy 🏄‍♀️ and Daddy 🏄‍♂️ Surf 🌊

Summer 2022

Another very busy day of Kingdom business here at the shop. My name is John A. Johnson (aka Daddy Surf 🏄‍♂️ 🌊)
No coincidence – a GODINCIDENCE – that the Lord sent the Johnson family here to receive healing, prophesy, and Baptism of the Holy Spirit 🌊 and Fire 🔥 ! We all gathered at the Surfboard Prayer bench and I covered them with the Talit and anointed them with oil.
SO POWERFUL! They all wept as Holy Spirit did HIS work and HE gave me powerful words to prophesie over each one of them individually and then as a whole as family. It was absolutely amazing!
Shortly thereafter, another young man walked in (the Lord brought him in) who works on the beach. I was in infantry with the U.S. Marine Corps, as well as he was! Another GODINCIDENCE!
I sat him on the Prayer Bench, we prayed together, and he surrendered his life to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior! Again it was POWERFUL 🔥🔥🔥 I’ll be going to his beach to baptize him in water.
It’s a never ending flow of HIS Spirit as we ‘Ride the Tide’ of Revival one and or more people at a time – all day and everyday that we are open!
Once again I want to thank y’all for your prayers and support. It means SO MUCH to Lib and I and we love y’all dearly. Jesus is King and HE loves you!
Have an absolutely beautiful day.
I think I’ll take a short nap 😴

Summer 2022

Once again at the Surf Shop, it was nonstop from the moment we opened until closing the Spirit of the Lord moved mightily – Divine Appointment one after another. Deep teaching, prayer, baptism in Holy Spirit and Fire, and much prophesy foretold. These young daughters of King Jesus were literally ‘ROCKED!’ as they encountered Holy Spirit and came to a complete understanding of what the baptism of Holy Spirit and Fire was. We had fellowship and prayed, and the Lord released powerful impartation and prophesy over their lives. It was an absolutely beautiful time. Keep these young ladies in your prayers – God has huge plans for their future!

Summer 2022

Another absolutely RADICAL DAY at the Surf Shop! The Lord literally turned this man’s truck (Mark) – around and he had to come into the Surf Shop. He came in because it was his time to encounter Jesus Christ and be filled with the Holy Spirit 🌊 and Fire 🔥 and he was completely healed! Notice both his arms are straight out- he couldn’t do that before because of the injuries and pain in his shoulders – he out in front of all our customers – the shop was full of people. It was POWERFUL!
Had a similar Divine Appointment yesterday evening also right before closing. A man – Adam said he and his family were down the street at Schooner’s on the beach. Adam said the Lord told him to go to the shop – right now! He was there right at the time I came in – GODINCIDENCE.
He, his wife, grandma and one of his sons were baptized in the Holy Spirit 🌊 and Fire 🔥 Adam and his wife began to speak in Tounges and they were totally overwhelmed by the presence of the Lord. They had a family of four and the Lord had me prophesie over them and anoint their young daughter – God will use her as His Daughter of Worship – she plays piano!
It’s NONSTOP everyday, all day and seems to be increasing! 🔥🔥🔥
God Is Absolutely Good!
It’s been a busy day and I’m pooped so I’m heading to bed early 😴
Y’all have an absolutely beautiful night and we’ll see you tomorrow.
Expecting another radical day. 🏄‍♂️🌊💪⚔️🔥🔥🔥

Summer 2022

Good early Wednesday morning Y’all –
Looking like another beautiful day in PCB. I’ll come on later with the Beach 🏖 Report, but we’re not expecting any real surf 🏄‍♀️ 🏄‍♂️ activity for awhile except small wind waves 🌊 for skim and maybe for kids learning.
I’ve posted a couple pictures of our Surfboard Prayer Bench. We also use the bench as an ‘Alter’ on our Friday evening ‘Gathering at the Surf Shop’ we host each week at 6:30pm. All are welcome and we meet for fellowship, worship, prayer and Word. This Friday I have asked ‘Robin Canton’ to talk about a subject that the Lord has placed heavily on my heart. I truly believe we’re very near to a critical point in our nation and world, particularly, with the dreams the Lord has been giving me regularly- I record and date each one, and my wife is having them also (last night’s was a DOOZIE!).
Back to the ‘Surfboard Prayer Bench’ –
I, as well as others, have literally prayed with and for I’d say thousands of folks on this bench. It’s totally amazing when I think about it and all the Divine Encounters / Appointments that have taken place and the testimonies that have followed. It’s like we’ve been riding this board on the ‘Waves of Glory’ and riding the tide of heaven going with HIS Flow 🏄‍♀️🏄‍♂️🌊🔥 It seems like the swell is getting larger and more consistent!
Now if you’re a surfer like Mommy Surf 🏄‍♀️ (Lib) and I (Daddy Surf 🏄‍♂️) or ever rode a wave, you’d understand what it’s like. So many things, particularly when the swell is huge and epic – frightening & exhilarating at the same time. It’s so infectious that you crave another wave/ ride to come your way.
So today Lord, I pray send the ‘Waves’ that we may see You’re Glory come in like a ‘TSUNAMI’!
We love y’all and always are here to pray and fellowship with you. See you soon at the Surf Shop.

Summer 2022

MUCH HAPPENING! The prophesies are coming to fruition! Intensifying and escalating so much so that it’s exactly like it’s been foretold, the ‘TSUNAMI’ has arrived!
The dreams are back and my wife is also having them. Plus, we’ve been contacted by prophets and worshipers coming to the shop. I believe the Lord desires to release a Word tomorrow evening. I’m praying into it, because it’s been burning in my heart.
The Divine Appointments / Encounters are powerful and daily. (see posted Testimonies) Please keep my wife and I and all the Lord is doing in your prayers. We love y’all and greatly appreciate y’all’s prayers and support.
I’ll get a Beach Report up shortly – Mommy Surf 🏄‍♀️ and I (Daddy Surf 🏄‍♂️) are heading out for an early morning paddle surf 🌊.
Prayer early early this morning;
Lord, I need your help and complete guidance to prepare all of me and my house for the ‘WEIGHT OF YOUR GLORY!’ I don’t know exactly how or what that looks like, but I desire more than anything to do my best to stay out of Your way. Lord, take me like clay, for You are my Potter, and form me in the vessel You desire to prepare me and use me in what You are doing and what You are preparing to do. I will remain pliable in Your Mighty Hands oh God as you kneed and smooth out the areas of roughnesses and perfect the areas that are smooth. My heart is yearning for more of You Jesus as the Father deeper and takes me higher into all of You Jesus and I exhume Your most beautiful reflection and fragrance in the world around me. Father – Yes I know that I am far from perfection, for I have not fully attained that which You called me, however, You see me perfect because of the sacrifice of Your One and Only Son Jesus Christ my King, my Lord and my Savior. As today is a new day, I know Your mercies are new every morning and I come humbly before Your great throne of mercy to receive grace in time of need. Father Lord, Jesus, today I will love you with ALL my heart, ALL my soul, ALL my mind, and ALL my strength. And, I will love others as You love me and I love myself.
Father God, Lord Jesus today I lay down my life as an alter of sacrifice to be used by you. I submit to You , oh God, and absolutely know the enemy MUST flee for it is written and sealed by the Authority and Precious Blood of Christ Your Son Jesus the Lamb who was slain. It is FINISHED!
So today I take up and bear Your armor, the full armor of God and suit up with the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Righteousness, and shod my feet with the Gospel of Peace. Above all I take up the Shield of Faith wherewith I shall quench every fiery arrow of the wicked one, and I don my head with the Helmet of Salvation, keeping every thought captivated to and renewing my mind with the things of Christ, casting out all imagination. And I pick up the Sword of the Spirit. I yield the Sword (Word) of the Spirit (Prophetic) and break through every principality, power, spirit of darkness and spirit of wickedness in the heavenlies. For I know the Kingdom of heaven sufferers violence and the violent ones take it by force. I declare that I am a violent one! So today I will break through into heaven and release it here on earth, for Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done here on earth as it in heaven.
I declare I am strong! I am strong in the Lord Jesus Christ!
I declare Psalm 91 over my wife and I and all you have spoke over our lives this day. I declare VICTORY today in Christ Jesus!
Jesus use me today as You will.
I am Yours COMPLETELY!
So be it Amen!

Summer 2022

WOW 😮 – we prayed for fast healing and recovery for True’s leg on Friday. He sent in his picture this morning and I received his message yesterday. Jesus Christ healed his leg in two days!
God is SO absolutely good!
Here’s True’s note:
Thank you for the prayers last week. (I believe it was Friday) Here is a quick picture of before and after praying. Swelling went down by 1/2 and walking without cane now. Thank you Jesus

Summer 2022

The Lord brought this young man and his parents to Mr. Surfs Surf Shop to shop, purchase a new skimboard, but most of all to have a brief time of fellowship and prayer. While at the register, I noticed his mom speaking with Robin (our employee) and overheard her saying she couldn’t stop crying – it was the presence of the Holy Spirit. I just smiled. I approached them as they were leaving and asked if they would like to pray. We did and it was powerful! The Lord had me speak an unusual Word but very good word over them as a family. I said, ‘Wow, that was different never had the Lord have me release a Word like that before! God’s got this family in the GRIP of his hands. She (the mom)sent us a message: Thank you for your support Jaleigh Taylor! 🏄‍♀️🏄‍♂️🌊
Mommy and Daddy Surf
🌴Do yourself a favor next time you’re in Panama City Beach and get your beach gear at Mr. Surfs Surf Shop! We’ve got ourselves a happy boy about to go skimboard in the rain!🤣
Came for gear, left with a good dose of The Word and prayer❤️
Jesus lovin’ beach people are our kind of people🙌🏼

Summer 2022

GOD IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
The first three pictures you see are of ‘Celeste’ – she and her family came in early this morning to the shop to attend our Special Sunday (Fourth of July Celebration) meeting to encounter Jesus Christ. The minute I saw Celeste enter the shop I knew why they were here, and why the Holy Spirit had me come in very early to pray and prepare for our special meeting. Celeste had on a body brace because she has scoliosis. The Lord not only brought her here to be healed, but to also teach, and pray over
the family to receive the Baptism of Holy Spirit 🌊 and Fire 🔥 – which was fulfilled – all at the Prayer Bench. They were Christians but were never taught the full knowledge and understanding of what it is – Religion and Legalism plus what is called Cessationalism. It’s so sad but true.
To make a long story short – they all were baptized in the Holy Spirit 🌊 and Fire 🔥 and MOST RADICAL of all – you see Celeste surfing with NO body brace. She was doing back flips off the board!!!
I’m still totally blown away – Jesus completely healed her. Hallelujah – we give all the praise and honor to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
It’s an absolutely beautiful warm sunny 🌞 day with clouds ⛅️ and small but fun surf. Water 💦 is clear emerald blue green and warm with Yellow flags.
Y’all have an absolutely wonderful Fourth of July Celebration 🇺🇸🎇
We’re Closed tomorrow. We love y’all and greatly appreciate y’all’s prayers and support. Jesus Christ is King and He loves you!

Testimonies from the Surf Shop:
The Spirit of the Lord continues to move mightily here at the shop each day. I never know what to expect. All I know is that I come home each day so amazed and in wonder at how the Lord allows, and desires, all of us, to be used to touch and bless people we encounter with the resources and gifts He blesses us with until He calls us home or until He returns.
Picture –  The Cowgirl Surfers
These young ladies came to the coffee shop and surf shop with their moms to celebrate a birthday. They are from Dallas. At the unction of the Holy Spirit I introduced myself and ministered to them. The Holy Spirit gave me words directly related to the situation of one of the moms and she began to cry and knew it was the Lord speaking to her. It was a situation about her son, and she was there to be comforted and receive emotional healing. Both moms were brought in to be prayed over for emotional healing – a very powerful time on the Prayer Bench. I blessed them with surfboards for the day, so the girls could go surfing on the Birthday celebration. God is Absolutely Good (GIAG) 🏄‍♀️🏄‍♀️🏄‍♀️🌊
 

Summer 2022

 ‘Natalie’ and her brother ‘Armando’ Rivera from Orlando. The Lord brought them in to be prayed over and receive a Prophetic word – each. Natalie just started crying and said she didn’t know why. I knew it was Holy Spirit and let Him lead me in the prayers and words. It was another very powerful encounter. Natalie then looked at her brother and said, ‘Why are you crying?’
It was truly a beautiful encounter with Jesus. They both have very special callings on their lives.
There’s so much more that happens each day all day when we are open.
We had a young girl who is here for a Christian Camp and she injured her foot and was in pain. C she came up to me and said that the moment she stepped into the shop, her the pain left her foot!
It’s never a dull moment. Hope y’all have an absolutely beautiful weekend!
I’m heading out of town for a couple days because the Lord is sending me out on an assignment. Please keep me in your prayers. I love y’all and greatly appreciate y’all’s prayers and support!
Be safe and be blessed 😇

These three young kids were a Divine Appointment set up at an EXACT location and an EXACT time – No coincidence, a GODINCIDENCE
I was supposed to be on the road to Vernon to work on our property very early because I wanted to work before the heat / temp got to high as I’m clearing land / bushwhacking the property by hand.
HOWEVER, at the unction of Holy Spirit I felt led to go to the County Pier to pray over and declare and decree the Word over PCB. Upon arriving and setting up, I observed these kids pull up and immediately knew the Lord had sent them there for prayer. They just arrived in PCB and couldn’t check into their room until later in the day. They walked directly towards me.
To make a long story short – I ministered to them, we prayed, and Holy Spirit gave me words of knowledge related directly to their situation/s and struggles leading into speaking into their lives with words of hope, edification, and particularly in one case, for healing. The young lady who needed deep emotional healing wept as I prayed for her. She was there to be set free from depression and anxiety. It was a very powerful encounter, and you had to be there to experience it. Jesus Christ set her free! God NEVER CEASES to completely blow me away!

Summer 2022

This couple came to the shop for prayer. They are faithfully stepping into positions of Pastor’s at a church that they were attending and the Pastor has retired and given the church over to them. Come to find out that one of them has a severe illness. We all prayed on the Surfboard Prayer Bench. They, as well as I, know the Pastor was completely healed. It was so powerful that we all began to sweat – the temperature around us got so hot – in an air conditioned building! Even our staff member said she felt it at the counter which is across the room. Also, when Holy Spirit moves like that the shop fills up with customers, as it did in this case, and they watch in wonder knowing something was happening. Some smile and know exactly what’s going on while others just have that look like it’s something they’ve never seen and or experienced! This is Marketplace Ministry – an Ekklesia – a Kingdom Business. Never a dull moment every day we’re open for HIS business.
Hope these testimonies lifted your spirit!
Y’all have an absolutely beautiful and blessed evening. I’m pooped and it’s going to be a very active week – I just know it for certain.

Summer 2022

The minute I stepped into the shop, the Lord had me declare, pray and prophesy over this beautiful family. Both parents are recovering addicts. Dad was there to receive the Baptism of Holy Spirit and Fire  – evidence is received prayer language. Mom had just recently received it. However, she had severe pain and immobility in her neck because she had broken it. Jesus Christ healed her completely – no pain & complete mobility restored! Hallelujah – thank you Jesus!
Hope y’all are inspired and encouraged by these testimonies. Remember it’s by the Blood ?? of the Lamb and Word of our Testimonies that the enemy is defeated. GO KICK THE DEVIL’S TEETH OUT!

Summer 2022

I was humbled and honored to pray and speak prophesy over and with this family. The Lord gave me a word of knowledge for one of the ladies stepson. And HE (the Lord) had me speak prophetic words over each one and every word HE gave me was spot on for every one of them. This is why it’s so important that we live / walk in Spirit and Truth during these trying times. When we do, the Holy Spirit can move freely as HE wills and the result is the evidence of the signs, miracles and wonders that occurred when Jesus walked among the people on earth. We are HIS vessels and HE desires vessels who are unashamed and willing to be used.
Hope y’all are inspired and encouraged by these testimonies. Remember it’s by the Blood 🩸 of the Lamb and Word of our Testimonies that the enemy is defeated. GO KICK THE DEVIL’S TEETH OUT!
