Praise the Lord, the first night ofthe New Life Meetings at Gateway Church of God in Indian Land, SC. Therewas a small gathering but that didn’t matter to God. He showed up andshowed off. Before I was able to get into my message the Holy Spiritstopped me and reminded me what He told me earlier this week. So, Iadmitted to the audience that I must stop and obey the Holy Spirit.
So, then I proceeded to telleveryone that God told me on Monday that I was to start the meeting by askingif there was anyone in the audience that was in need of healing, if so stand upand the first to stand God has promised he would heal. Three people stoodup, I was a little surprised that 3 stood up at the same time. So, I letGod do His thing while I went and prayed for them. One person was healedof a hurt leg, and two people were healed of throat problems. WOW,praises to our Lord, he is still in the business of healing and restoration.
The end of the service was great,two more people came forward for healing and one was very excited about thespot on their face being healed. My heart was so full because of thebrokenness of one of them that wanted to live a life of compassion for other asChrist lives.
I can’t wait to go tomorrow nightto see what God’s going to do in the hearts of the people. The only thingthat comes to my mind right now is the words of a song that Travis Cottrellsings “Do It Lord".
Praise the Lord, 2nd night ofNew Life Meetings and God is still on the throne, healing and restoring peopleto new life.
The message last night was aboutthe arsenal of weapons we have at our disposal to stand up against the devils“If” Scriptures used 2 Corinthians 10:5, 1 Corinthians 9:27, Philippians4:8, Luke 4:18-19, Mark 16:15-18, and 2 Timothy 1:7.
At the end of the service the HolySpirit called people forward, they came forward for healing and living a lifeof compassion and allowing God to manifest himself in and through them. God moved in hearts and they were transformed. He moved in bodies and 1knee was restored, 1 arm was restored, 1 leg was restored, 1 digestive systemwas restored and 1 hip was restored.
After praying for the person withthe hip problem, she was asked to lift her leg several times with each lift shewas surprised she could lift it and said “WOW that feels pretty good, then tooka step and with a more enthusiastic voice said “WOW that feels really good”.
Praise the Lord He is that sameyesterday, today and forever. His word is true. He manifestsHimself in and through all willing vessels.
The bottom line of the message wasdo you believe God or simply believe in God?
At the end of the service 1 personmade a dedication to start believing God and not just in him. 3 cameforward for healing. All were restored to new life through the power ofthe Holy Spirit.
Jesus is the same yesterday, todayand forever and His awesome power healed a knee, throat, ribs and ankle lastnight.
And a young boy was so inspired bythe Holy Spirit that he made a declaration that He wanted to live this life ofChrist and preach the gospel and heal the sick. Then asked if he couldpray for the next person and was allowed with guidance and the person’s throatwas healed.
The message was changed atthe last minute by the Holy Spirit to Hebrews 4:12; John 1:1-14, Mark 16:15-18,& Psalms 81:10.
When you open your mouth God willfill it and then Jesus being the word basically jumps out of your mouth and isnow alive and active and sharper than any two edged sword.
At the end of the service a younggirl came forward asking for prayer for her toes, she has inherited toes thatbend almost at a 90 degree angel to the side. She was anointed and prayedfor and before our very eyes we saw two toes become straight and the 3rd thebend decrease. We believe that the third will soon also becomestraight.
The last meetings message wason grace and I was completely broken, no one responded to any of theinvitations (salvation, showing grace toward others starting today, healing)and yet there was multiple people with tears streaming down their faces, onewas physically shaking but still refused to come forward. There werefaces contorted with tears unable to stop but still refused to come.
I closed the service with prayerand had to leave the sanctuary for awhile, praise the Lord; Ian Mitchell waswith us all week to play music and just stepped up, played and sang. Ijust cried and cried. Sometimes it can be heart grieving to see those sotormented and will not accept the way to freedom.
Two people came up to me after theservice when everyone was leaving to let me know that the message was forthem. :-( :-)
Praise the Lord later that day awoman I prayed for before church had complete release from her intestinal problem.
God is still on His throne and Heis still in the business of setting the captives free, no matter what form ofbondage they are in.
