TOS012: Charism of Prophecy
The Gift of Prophecy is a supernatural communication from God to an individual or a group of believers. It is an anointing given by the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 14: 1 “Make love your aim, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy.” NAB Prophecy is speaking of the mind and heart of God to His people. God’s voice is gentle and strong, listen for love in it. His voice brings peace. Rarely does He use a burning bush, chariots of fire or a thundering voice to...
TOS011: Charism of Tongues
Described by St. Paul as the least of the gifts, this unusual gift is very helpful for all Christians. This episode will answer many of your questions about the charism of Tongues and help you to receive this gift of the Holy Spirit.
TOS010: Allowing the Lord to Bring Healing through Forgiveness
You forgive because you were forgiven. This is the basis of salvation. When you go against this it can cause all kinds of issues in your life. It steals your peace, it can destroy your faith, it can affect your body, it can cost you your very life—your eternal life. This is serious stuff! How do we learn to forgive? Nothing that has been done to you is greater than that which Jesus took to the cross and yet Jesus forgave them. In fact, that which harmed you was at the cross also. The Lord...

This episode includes teaching of the Church as well as personal experiences as examples of the charisms in action so as to better understand them.
TOS008: Baptism of the Holy Spirit
Baptism of the Spirit is when the Lord stirs into a flame the Spirit that was given to us in the sacraments. The truth is this, God sent His Holy Spirit to dwell within us to guide us on the Way and to share His love with us. Often this gift lies dormant. This episode shares how you can invite the Holy Spirit into your heart and explains the benefits which includes the awakening to the reality of faith—the purpose of Christianity and the Church as you are given the tools to step forward in...
TOS007: Conversion of Heart Through the Holy Spirit
When we allow the grace of the Holy Spirit to penetrate our hearts, God’s grace brings us a reorientation of our whole life toward God and thus eternal happiness. At the same time it causes the desire and resolution to change our life with hope in God’s mercy and trust in the help of his grace. It brings healing and a turning away from evil.
TOS006: Does God Love Me?
Truth of the Spirit’s third show in the series on Life in the Spirit. Have you ever doubted that God loves you because you don’t think you are good enough? God’s love does not hinge on whether you are good or not. This show explores the Father’s love for you like the father in the Parable of the Prodigal Son. Through Baptism we become children of God and heirs of the kingdom of God. His gift of love to us is salvation and life in the Spirit.
TOS005: Who is the Holy Spirit? (Life in the Spirit Part 2)
Trust me, when the Holy Spirit came upon Jesus like a dove, He was not a pigeon. The Holy Spirit is a person. The Holy Spirit can come with the gentleness of a dove. The Holy Spirit can also manifest with sound, wind, power, fire, and life. The wind of the Spirit can be a gentle breeze or come like the strong wind of a tornado. The hounds of hell—the gates of hell cannot prevail against the Holy Spirit mirrored in nature by the tornadic winds that consume all in the path that has become a...
TOS004: A Witness of Life in the Spirit (Life in the Spirit Part 1)
First show in the series on Life in the Spirit. Patti Brunner shares her personal testimony about the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in her life that led her to deeper understanding, comprehension and appreciation of Life in the Spirit. She explains how her black and white viewpoint was opened to Technicolor by the love of God and acceptance of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
TOS003: Letting Go of Internal Chaos
Internal chaos blocks our ability to recognize what the Lord has already done. Sitting down and making a list of the joys God has given us can give us a chance to reflect on something positive. According to your frame of mind, at first it may be hard to find anything positive. Chaos causes us to focus on the negatives. There was a silly song by Buck Owens and Roy Clark sung regularly on the show “Hee Haw”[i] that comes to my mind sometimes when I am around negative people. “Gloom, despair,...
TOS002: The Supernatural Answers When There is Carnal Chaos
We need “Supernatural Answers when there is Carnal Chaos”! First, what do we mean by the word “carnal”? Carnal means fleshly. The word flesh refers to the body or our earthly desires but it also refers to our ‘sin nature’ that constantly rebels against God. Man has dual natures: Our spiritual nature and the carnal or the flesh nature. Paul wrote to the Galatians 5:17 “For the flesh has desires against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; these are opposed to each other, so...
TOS001: Finding Peace When Time Causes Chaos
What’s in your heart? Supernatural peace? Or chaos? We seem to be living in a fairly chaotic time, don’t we! This is nothing new. As we read through the bible we can find several times that the people of God lived in chaos. We can pull some great advice from the bible’s inspired writers. Paul wrote to the Philippians during a time of turmoil in the early Church, a time of persecution and during the chaos of change and growth. His advice in Philippians Chapter 4:4-9 is: “Rejoice in the Lord...
