Prison Ministry – The Passion of Christ

The following is not written by me. It is the work of Bill Yount and was published in a prison ministry training manual.

By Bill Yount
It was late at night and I was tired. . .but about midnight, God spoke to me in my spirit and asked a question. . .
“Bill, where on earth does man keep his most priceless treasures and valuables?” I said “Lord, usually these treasures
like gold, silver, diamonds and precious jewels are kept locked up somewhere out of sight, usually with
guards and security to keep them under lock and key.”
God spoke. “Like man, My most valuable treasures on earth are also locked up.” Then I saw Jesus standing in
front of seemingly thousands of prisons and jails. The Lord said, “They have almost been destroyed by the
enemy, but these souls have the greatest potential to be used, and to bring forth glory to My name. Tell My
people, I am going this hour to the prisons to activate the gifts and callings that lie dormant in these lives that
were given before the foundation of the earth. Out from these walls will come forth a spiritual army that will have
power to literally kick down the gates of H ell and overcome satanic powers that are holding many of M y people
bound in My own House.
“Tell My people that great treasure is behind these walls, in these forgotten vessels. M y people must come forth
and touch these lives, for a mighty anointing will be unleashed upon them for future victory in My kingdom. They
must be restored.”
Then I saw the Lord step up to the prison doors with a key. O ne key fit every lock and the gates began to open. I
then heard and saw great explosions which sounded like dynamite going off behind the walls. It sounded like all-out
spiritual warfare. Jesus turned and said, “T ell My people to go in now and pick up the spoil and rescue them.”
Jesus then began walking in and touching inmates who were thronging Him. Many, being touched, instantly
began to have a golden glow come over them. God spoke to me, “There’s the gold!” Others had a silver glow
around them. God said, “T here’s the silver!”
Like slow motion they began to grow into what appeared to be giant knights, armed warriors. They had on the
armor of God and every piece was solid and pure gold! Even golden shields! W hen I saw the golden shields, I
heard God say to these warriors, “Now go and take what Satan has taught you and use it against him. Go and pull
down the strongholds coming against M y Church.” The spiritual giants then started stepping over the prison walls
with no one to resist them, and they went immediately to the very front line of the battle with the enemy. I saw
them walk right past the church, and big-name ministers–known for their power with God–were surpassed by the
giant warriors like David going after Goliath! They crossed the enemy’s line and started delivering many of God’s
people from the clutches of Satan while demons trembled and fled out of sight at their presence. No one, not even
the Church, seemed to know who these spiritual giants were or where they came from. They were restored to
God’s House and there was great victory and rejoicing. I also saw silver, precious treasures, and vessels being
brought in. Beneath the gold and silver were the people that nobody knew: Rejects of society, street people, the
outcasts, the poor and the despised. These were the treasures that were missing from His House.
Then the Lord said. “If My people want to know where they are needed, tell them they are needed in the streets,
the hospitals, the missions, and the prisons. W hen they come there, they will find M e and the next move of’ My
