Lake - Read freely text sermons and articles by the speaker John G. Lake in text and pdf format. Lake, was a Canadian—American leader in the Pentecostal movement that began in the early 20th century, and is known as a faith healer, missionary, and with Thomas Hezmalhalch, co-founder of the Apostolic Faith Mission of South Africa. Through his —13 African missionary work, Lake played a decisive role in the spread of Pentecostalism in southern Africa, the most successful southern African religious movement of the 20th century. After completing his missionary work in Africa, Lake evangelized for 20 years, primarily along the west coast of the United States setting up "healing rooms" and healing campaigns, and establishing churches.
And these signs will follow those who believe in My name: To set apart for sacred use, consecrate. To set apart for a deity or for religious purposes, consecrate. To declare or set apart as sacred, to dedicate to a given goal or purpose —adj. Consecrated to a sacred purpose, sanctified. Many Christians, Dr.
Lake among them, consider there to be a sanctifying sovereign act by God in which He purifies the heart of the individual and makes that person holy—usually based on 1 Thessalonians 5: In this book, however, we are not using sanctify, dedicate, or consecrate to mean a sovereign act of God.
We are using it to mean you voluntarily and deliberately setting yourself aside for the purpose of being used by God to heal the sick and the oppressed. We have an example of this in Jesus himself. In John But now as Christians, we must do as Jesus did and set ourselves apart— sanctify, dedicate, consecrate ourselves—to the sacred use, will, and purposes of God. For an example of this, see John G. It is the direction of your heart that determines the direction you are going. As you think in your heart, so are you Proverbs Or to put it another way, you only do those things that you first see yourself doing.
Your body contains nearly million receptors that enable you to see, hear, taste, touch, and smell physical reality. But your brain contains more than 10, billion synapses. Why did God design us that way? So we will live, and can live, by faith and not by sight 2 Corinthians 5: Jesus sanctified Himself, set Himself apart for the final work of the Cross.
Someone once wrote of Him: Smith Wigglesworth2 said it another way: Cast aside all thoughts of personal glory, for God will not allow anyone to take the glory that belongs to His Son alone. Like Jesus, sanctify yourself completely so that God can have a vessel dedicated to His purposes alone.
Set your desires, your heart, fully upon this task. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double- minded man, unstable in all his ways James 1: Lake Discusses His Divided Heart Shortly after my Baptism in the Holy Spirit, a working of the Spirit commenced in me that seemed to have for its purpose the revelation of the nature of Jesus Christ to me and in me. Through this tuition and remolding of the Spirit, a great tenderness for mankind was to awaken in my soul.
I saw mankind through new eyes. They seemed to me as wandering sheep, having strayed far, in the midst of confusion, groping and wandering hither and thither. They had no definite aim and did not seem to understand what the difficulty was or how to return to God. The desire to proclaim the message of Christ, and demonstrate His power to save and bless, grew in my soul until my life was swayed by this overwhelming passion.
Lake However, my heart was divided. I could not follow successfully the ordinary pursuits of life and business. When a man came into my office, though I knew that twenty or thirty minutes of concentration on the business in hand would possibly net me thousands of dollars, I could not discuss business with him. By a new power of discernment, I could see his soul, understand his inner life and motives.
I recognized him as one of the wandering sheep, and longed in an overwhelming desire to help him get to God for salvation and to find himself. I determined to discuss the matter with the president of my company.
I frankly told him the condition of soul in which I found myself and its cause. You need a change. Take a vacation for three months, and if you want to preach, preach.
During the three months, I preached every day to large congregations, saw a multitude of people saved from their sins and healed of their diseases, and hundreds of them baptized in the Holy Ghost. Will it be necessary for you to do what Lake did? Only God knows. God works differently with each of us.
But God will give you the grace to do whatever He deems necessary for you to do to receive the spiritual power that you will need to do the work that He has already determined for you. It is always so, and His grace is always sufficient for the task 2 Corinthians Great spiritual power requires great dedication and separation.
Not many, however, are willing to dedicate themselves and set themselves apart to obtain it, even when God clearly indicates to them that He will give them the spiritual power they seek if they will do so. She said that God had offered it to three men before He offered it to her, and that they had each refused it because the cost was too high. How do you know if God is calling you to a ministry of spiritual power? Why are you reading this book?
Curiosity or desire? Neither do I. And He will always give you the desires that He puts into your heart! Lake determined he should do. Are you willing to do whatever it costs to get it? This is especially true in spiritual matters.
For spiritual power, each individual must pay the price. There are no exceptions. There are no cloned Christians. Though material wealth may be inherited, passed from one to another, this is not true of spiritual power, no matter how many claim to the contrary that they have received the so-called anointing of another.
What is true in spiritual matters is what David du Plessis Mr. Pentecost4 told a man on an airplane about the necessity of each person being born-again: He never imparts it to anyone to use for his or her own selfish purposes, to use in ways outside of His will, or to use in ways that brings glory to the individual and not to Jesus Christ.
It is not from God, but is power that is of man or another source; a source that may even deceive the individual, and those who gather to wonder and marvel, into believing it is the power of the Holy Spirit. Keep Yourself from Being Deceived How will you keep yourself from being deceived by pseudo- power, false power that is not of God as you pursue your goal of true spiritual power?
By one of the spiritual principles that God has established: Lake tells about a man in Africa who did just that and what resulted from it. He had a top of red hair that made him as conspicuous as a lion. He walked up the aisle and took a seat quite near the front. My old preaching partner was endeavoring to explain the mighty power of the living Christ as best he could, and this man sat listening.
Tell me what to do! Before he left, he knelt by a chair and consecrated his life to God. Three months passed. There was no mistaking it. The wonder of it was in his soul. He went down into the country where a great epidemic of fever raged. Some weeks afterward I began to receive word that people were being healed. Hundreds of them! Thousands of them! One day I concluded I would go down and join in the same work a couple of hundred miles from where he was.
Somehow, the news traveled to him where I was, and he came there.
The next afternoon we called at the home of a man who said his wife was sick with diabetes. We prayed for the wife and several other persons who were present. The right foot was on an angle of 45 degrees and the left at right angles. Pray for anybody. We have not even begun to touch the fringes of the knowledge of the power of God. However, I want to encourage your hearts.
I am glad we can say what perhaps has never been said in the Christian world from the days of the apostles to the present time, that since the opening of this work in Spokane, about sixteen months ago, ten thousand people have been healed by the power of God. Written about Therefore, like Jesus did—and like John G. Duggan, and countless others did throughout the grand history of the Church—sanctify yourself for the sake of the oppressed, the sick, and the lost so that you may set them free and heal them in the name of Jesus Christ.
Lake brought deliverance, healing, and salvation to hundreds-of-thousands. It is said that in a five-year period in Spokane, Washington, Lake and his staff recorded healings of over , people. So many that Spokane was declared to be the healthiest city in the United States. Many of the physical afflictions were of such a nature that nothing could have healed them except the true spiritual power of God—the kind of power you want.
Breast Cancer Mrs. She was healed of the Lord in answer to prayer.
Varicose Veins Mrs. Everetts, Boone Avenue, testified to her healing of varicose veins. She had suffered from them for thirty-eight years. The veins were enlarged until they were the size of goose eggs in spots.
Under the right knee, there was a sack of blood so large that the knee was made stiff. She had exhausted every medical method. Walker, Granby Court, was an invalid at the Deaconess hospital from internal cancer; after an exploratory operation, the disease was pronounced incurable by the doctors.
She also had a severe case of neuritis. Her suffering was unspeakable. She testified to her healing and of her restoration to perfect health, the cancer having passed from her body in seven sections. Since then, many have been healed through her prayer and faith. Inflammatory Rheumatism Mrs. Stutsman, Hansen Apartments, testified to having been an invalid for thirteen years.
On one occasion, she lay in the Sacred Heart Hospital with a twenty-pound weight attached to her foot for thirty- two days, while suffering from inflammatory rheumatism. Her suffering was so intense that she begged her husband to take her home, preferring to remain a cripple rather than endure such suffering.
The Reverend Lake was called to minister to her at her home; as prayer was offered, the power of the Spirit of God surged through her. Five minutes after his hands were laid upon her she arose from her bed, perfectly healed.
Fibroid Tumors and Restoration of Organs Mrs. John A. Graham, E Hartson, a nurse and hospital matron, was operated on for fibroid tumors. The generative organs were removed and at a later date, she was operated on a second time for gallstones.
The operation not being a success, she was eventually left to die, and when in the throes of death and unconscious, she was healed by the power of God in answer to prayer of one of the ministers called from the healing Rooms.
Lake grew in the body, and she became a normal woman and a mother. Dislocated Hip Healed from a Distance Mrs. Gilbertson, N Helena Street, testified that through disease, her hip came out of joint and her limb would turn like the leg of a doll, showing that it was entirely out of the socket.
Her home is about five miles distant from the Healing Rooms. Reverend Lake and his co-workers engaged in prayer for her at the Healing Rooms, and as prayer was offered the power of God came upon her [at home], resetting the joint. You doctors hear it? You preachers who lie to the people and say the days of miracles are past, do you hear it?
You doubters hear it? Because faith in God applied the blessed power of God to her life and limb. Lake Dedicated and Single-minded To be dedicated and single-minded in your pursuit of the kind of spiritual power that John G. Lake had, you must be a constant consumer of the meat of the Word of God. The Holy Spirit can only use the amount of the Word that is in you. He will teach you the deep things of the Scriptures as you meditate upon them, and will remind you of what He has taught you and teach you even more at the times you need them.
So, be filled with the Word of God. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life John 6: And almost without exception, the decline of every person great for God can be directly traced to a decline in their love and study of the Word of God. Rather than continuing to feed daily upon the fresh bread of the Word of God, they tried to maintain their spiritual strength with what they had eaten in days and years past.
And gradually the ways of the Word slipped away from them and were replaced with the ways of the world. An Evil Heart of Unbelief The book of Exodus tells us that the Israelites did not have the faith to go into the Promised Land and drive out the enemies of God who were squatters on the land He had promised to Abraham.
Hebrews 3: He could not do what He wanted to do for them, and through them, because they would not believe Him and obey Him. Verse How often has it prevented Him from doing what He wanted to do for us or through us because we did not have the faith in Him to move forward when He was urging us to do so? If you want to minister to the sick and oppressed, to set them free and heal them, then for their sakes, and for the sake of the glory of God and Jesus Christ, you cannot— must not—limit God by your unbelief.
How do you get rid of unbelief? The Scriptures say this about the Old Covenant Israelites: Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come. Do what God tells us to do and receive the results and blessings He promises us.
During those forty years, He fed them only manna. Now it is important to us that we realize that our omnipotent God could have fed them with the finest food of the earth—if He had wanted to.
Or He could have fed them with a great variety of heavenly food finer than all the finest food of the earth—if He had wanted to. But He fed them only manna—a sweet, wafer-like, food that appeared on the ground each morning except on the Sabbath. But the manna had nothing to do with that.
Think of it: Nothing but manna and more manna for forty years! And all when God was fully capable of providing the Israelites with the finest and tastiest of foods—if He had wanted to. So why did He feed them nothing but manna for forty years?
God, of course, does nothing without a reason and a purpose—and Moses tells us what those were in Deuteronomy 8: Every commandment which I command you today you must be careful to observe, that you may live and multiply, and go in and possess the land of which the LORD swore to your fathers. Lake And you shall remember that the LORD your God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not.
So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD.
Lake God could not have the next generation of Israelites disobey Him also because of unbelief and refuse to go into the Promised Land. He is everywhere, of course, but His presence is manifested only where He has obedient people. It is a principle throughout the Bible that whenever God wants to do something in a particular place, He always sends His people there and does it through them—that is, through the ones who are obedient to Him.
Lake being sent to Africa. So to rid the Israelites of any unbelief that might make them disobey Him, God humbled them and put them on a forty-year fast of manna so that they would learn that His children are not to live by physical food alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.
And a few years later, He used the other spiritual principle that God had established and told His disciples that they could not cast a demon out of a little boy because of their unbelief.
That a spirit of infirmity that had been in someone for a long time could only come out through prayer and fasting. Matthew Putting those two principles together, it is easy for us to realize that God has given us His Word, fasting, and prayer to enable us to rid ourselves of unbelief and give greater force to our faith.
Just as we physically live and grow by the food of the earth that God has given us, we must spiritually live and grow by the food of heaven that God has given us. There is no other way to physically live and grow, and there is no other way to spiritually live and grow.
If we refuse or neglect to eat physical food, we physically die, and if we refuse or neglect to eat spiritual food, we spiritually die. To try to spiritually live and grow without the spiritual food God has given us makes as much sense as trying to live and grow without the physical food God has given us.
Neither is possible. You may be a great spiritual athlete: The Word lost its flavor and taste to you. I know of preacher after preacher who had great power at one time, but they have lost all the joy in the Scripture. How do I know? Lake they act. And when a man loves his Bible, you will find the Bible with him, in his arms, somewhere.
He has gotten hold of the thing. He is holding it.
When I find a man along in years, his hair is growing gray, and I see that he loves the Bible, I know that man is fresh in his spirit life. You can trace the downfall of every spiritual giant that I have ever known in my life to one of these three things. I heard one of the greatest men this country ever produced, when that Book was in his hand, when he preached just like this.
He drove me to my knees. Every time I would hear him I would go out, get alone, and pray if I could possibly do it.
He filled me, thrilled me, and lifted me. I saw him 20 years later when his name was on the lips of every man. I heard him preach, and I noticed that he quoted a good many Scriptures, but he never picked up his Bible. I noticed he had a theory and a philosophy of redemption instead of the old-time simple exposition of the Word.
And I saw that man whose name was known in every part of the world with something like 60 churches sponsoring him in a building that seated about , and the building was not half full. He had the greatest Gospel soloist that this country had ever produced, but the meeting was as dry and dead as any formal service imaginable.
But here is how it had come: People criticized it. Fresh new experiences are coming into you all the time. You are walking in the realm of miracles. I knew that man when he walked in the creative realm of faith. I knew him later when he moved down into the purely intellectual realm. Physical Healing is Spiritual Healing is basically a spiritual thing. The power that heals the sick comes from God down through your spirit, out through your hands into that man or woman. If you are having the right kind of spiritual fellowship, you will have power with God, and there is no escaping it.
I want to be able to stand about 10, volts. I want to be wired up to God so that the fullness of His power can pour down through me, through my soul, out through my hands and voice to the people. God is a spirit. You are a spirit. Something breaks the connection, and the power no longer flows through. You ask me to pray for you. There is no power. What is the matter? Something has broken the connection.
But suppose you and I are both right in our spirits. You will get your healing as sure as God sits on His throne. The Second Thing What must be done continually is that after you have fed on the Word, you must open your spirit to confession.
He will use you to communicate to others. You act as a medium to communicate Him to others by message or testimony or prayer. You are His instrument through which He is going to work. The Third Thing Now you see that keeps you in perfect communion because you have to get new messages continually from Him, so you live in perfect fellowship with Him, feeding on His Word and telling of the things He does for you.
And no Christian can long survive that does not have a present tense up-to-date testimony. Three things. One, feeding on the Word. I mean confession of your faith in Christ, of what Christ is to you—of His fullness, of His completeness, and of His redemption.
Three, communion with Him. Feeding on the Word, confession, and communion. Yet, they are the things that produce great spiritual life. You do not have it without them.
The Word of God, prayer, and testifying to the things that God has done for you will build your spiritual strength and keep you strong. Charles S. Price titled The Creative Word. It is true that it records history and is replete with fascinating narrative, but to accept it as an instruction book regarding life or a guide book to tell us about the way home is to miss its meaning and its power.
As a matter of fact, all ethnic writings can be described as dead for they tell only of dead souls and dead creeds and dead philosophies and dead empires. They can be summarized as religious histories. To them it is narrative. It is a textbook of life. It is not life itself, but a book about how to live life.
To them the Bible lives. That is, they discover in the printed word an ever-unfolding understanding. They recognize that back of the printed page is a Spirit who can and does reveal the meaning of the Word. They read a chapter one day and rejoice in the revelation that it brings. A week later they discover a deeper truth hidden in the words they have read and the consciousness begins to dawn on them that the words they read a week ago are the media through which the Spirit of God approaches the heart and life.
They discover there is a difference between the letters imprinted by the genius of the printer on a page of paper and the meaning of those letters unfolded and revealed by the Holy Spirit. For them, the Word begins to live. When I went through my Euclid or Algebra in school days there was no need for me to go over and over them again to see if there was something I had missed. When I had mastered my Pons Assinoruin the 5th problem of Euclid , it was conquered.
I worked my problem. But not so with the Bible. We never exhaust its meaning. We never arrive at the finality of its riches. It is a living word in the sense that it means more than what it says on the page.
One needs the Holy Spirit as a teacher to unfold its meaning and to impart the truth in power of which the words are only a representation. They have found the secret of the assimilation of the incarnate Word until it is translated into their own lives, and becomes strength and understanding and health of both body and soul. The purpose and mind and heart and plan of God were expressed in the miracle of the incarnation. Not that Jesus was the Father. So to know what God wants to do in the world, what He intends to do, what He will do through those who believe His Word, we have only to look at the life of Jesus and see what He did—and then read time and again His Words and believe them: But we ought to go forward!
The fullness of spiritual power is ahead. The completeness of the outpouring still awaits us. I believe that the richest and greatest experiences are just around the corner. The ark has not yet reached its destination. It is still coming our way. The times of the Gentiles began with an image and it will close with an image. It began with a temple and it will close with one. This Church dispensation began with the upper room and it will finish with an upper room.
It began with the presence of the power so poured out that sickness and suffering were swept away by the glory of the presence of the Lord. It will end the same way. The day is coming when the power of the Spirit will rest so mightily upon the hearts of Spirit-filled men and women that they will command blind eyes to open and they will obey instantly at the word.
The day of revival is not over. Cities are yet to be shaken. The winds are to blow again in the tops of the mulberry trees. We have not yet received the fullness of the latter rain.
We have not yet witnessed the full irresistible sweep of the power of the Holy Spirit and the majesty and victory of the indwelling Christ. But it is coming. For only as we obey can we be indwelt by His mighty presence.
We must eat His flesh and drink His blood. We must be partakers of the divine nature.
The words He spoke must be spirit and life to us. Then clothed with God and indwelt by His Spirit, Christians will march forward to glorious victory, radiant as an army with banners. The sick will be healed. Miracles of power and of glory that will bring heaven to earth will be done in the name of Jesus Christ.
Under the urge of that indwelling life, every obstacle will give way and the world will see the greater things of which the Savior spoke. And Jesus, whom we preach and whom we receive, will be proclaimed Christ of all, the wisdom and the dynamite of God.
The days of allegiance to ceremonial laws have gone. This is the privilege of all who refuse to turn back, and who will know the glory and the blessing that comes from His indwelling—His presence will make your very blood throb with the power of an endless life.
The multitude will follow Him for loaves and fishes. Others will follow after Him but afar off. But the little company of believers who are willing to pay the price and go with Him all the way will be the ones through whom the mighty power of the Spirit of God will manifest.
Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart, … Luke Lake give up praying for the oppressed who need your help. Go on to the living and renew your efforts. Many who pray often shut the door before the answer enters. They are like a marathon runner who quits and collapses exhausted by the wayside, not realizing that the finish line is just around the next bend—too taken up with the feelings within himself to even hear the cries of encouragement from those along the way who are urging him on—urging him to keep going, to keep trying, to finish the race.
And He was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to Him Mark 1: Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him Luke Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation? Hebrews 1: Be patient and hold fast. Increase your understanding and encourage yourself with the story of Daniel. He prayed and ate no food he enjoyed for three full weeks Daniel Be like Daniel, patient and steadfast, until the answer comes.
That close! Be a Daniel, not a Peter. When this happens, know that it is because the battle has been joined, that it is a sign that the enemy fears the power that you are seeking, and is determined to do all he can to discourage you from reaching your goal. Lake your goal of healing the oppressed and bringing glory to Jesus Christ.
But it is all smoke and shadows. He is a liar and the father of lies John 8: The only real power he has is the power to deceive. And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.
So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him Revelation So be patient and steadfast and stay the course until the Lord imparts to you the spiritual help you need. And impart it to you He will—for whenever you do not have enough of whatever you need to do whatever the Lord wants to do through you, He will always give you of what He has, if you will trust Him for it.
A day or two afterwards my sister and I were in the city in one of the large department stores. A divine flood moved her, and I knew she was healed. I knew a man in South Africa who was an ardent Methodist.
He had ten sons, all Methodist preachers and three beautiful daughters who were holy women. This family was one of the most wonderful families I have ever known. The old father had been stricken with disease, and the agony of his suffering was so great that the only way to relieve him was to drug him into insensibility. As the years passed, he became a morphine addict. He told me that he smoked 24 cigars, drank two quarts of whiskey, and used a tremendous quantity of morphine every day.
The old man, 73 years old, was drugged into senselessness most of the time. I prayed with him unceasingly for sixteen hours without result. William Duggin, one of my ministers, hearing of the situation, came to my assistance. He stood over the old gentleman and prayed for him in the power of God, but somehow there was no answer. I watched that man in convulsions until his daughters begged me to let them give him a little morphine and die senseless, rather than to let him suffer longer.
I have had your pledge and his, too, that life or death, we are going to fight this battle through. I reached out and got hold of him and held him as in a grip of iron. Many a day after that I have walked with him over his three vast estates, on which there were 50, orange trees and 50, lemon trees. As we walked the old man told me of his love for God and of the richness of His presence, and I have my reward.
If the church ever succeeds in doing that which God purposes we should do, it can only be when we enter into that divine compassion of the Son of God. Armed with the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, and the sword of the Word you will win every battle, even though you may get a bit bloodied now and then.
And even to make it more challenging, most of them were cases that even the physicians could not diagnose" John G. This is something we do not see any apostle do and is in that category of greater works. The sons of God will meet the sons of darkness and prevail.
Lake had believed in another Pentecost that would be utterly transforming and his descriptions have been used and abused by many. Chicago Tribune, June 14, , p. I want to get to the throne of God… And that is the experience that is going to make the sons of God in the world. The Bible teaches that we are sons of God when we believe Jn. It makes one a god.
It makes one not subject to the forces of the world, or the flesh, or the devil. These are under the Christians feet. It is good to desire holiness to do good works but can a church ever be as perfect as Jesus without the final transformation of the resurrection?
To say that it will be in Spokane seems to come from his own hearts because of the situation he was dealing with. Some of this is reminiscent of Joseph Smith who also found himself in the woods visited by Jesus and an angel and found the church corrupt, needing restoration. I did find a contradiction between Lakes desire and what he himself did. John G. Why would they let him use their facility, better yet, why would you want to hold you church meetings there?
Why there is lightning in the soul of Jesus! The lightnings of Jesus heal men by their flash! Sin dissolves and disease flees when the power of God approaches! Just as men had learned the laws of electricity, Lake had discovered the laws of the Spirit.
She gained a reputation by falsely prophesying that San Francisco would be destroyed by an earthquake in People were slain in the spirit and other strange phenomena occurred. Certainly not a good influence, not any more than Dowie. I would point my finger at a man and that stream would strike him. When a man interrupted the meeting. I would point my finger at him and say, "Sit down!
He fell as if struck, and lay there for three hours…" ed. Note: Just like the stories of Rodney Browne. There is no Biblical basis for a transmission of a mantle or transferring an anointing from one person to another.
There is no evidence that a transfer took place when the apostles laid hands on people 1 Timothy and 2 Timothy The Holy Spirit was not coming from them onto others. By the laying on of hands they publically recognized them as a confirmation of what the Holy Spirit has either already done or wants to do Acts ; ; ; Hebrews Acts 19 tells us that when Paul laid hands on some believers from Ephesus the Spirit came Gr. If you guard against these things, your fasting will be perfect.
Text Sermons: John G. Lake - Read freely text sermons and articles by the speaker John G. Lake in text and pdf format. Lake, was a Canadian—American leader in the Pentecostal movement that began in the early 20th century, and is known as a faith healer, missionary, and with Thomas Hezmalhalch, co-founder of the Apostolic Faith Mission of South Africa.
Through his —13 African missionary work, Lake played a decisive role in the spread of Pentecostalism in southern Africa, the most successful southern African religious movement of the 20th century.
After completing his missionary work in Africa, Lake evangelized for 20 years, primarily along the west coast of the United States setting up "healing rooms" and healing campaigns, and establishing churches.
