The Third Night of Above All started with a testimony and ended with a miracle. I'll have all the details in the recap, bug God is moving in this production and people's lives are being changed. There is so much sacrificing that is going on. It's a lot like the Isaiah 58 fast on display each and every night. Find out what happened last night and what it means for you.
First, I want to make another shout out to some unsung heroes of Above All. A number of family members and friends have stepped out to help our cast. They aren't at Above All as greeters or backstage hands. They are babysitters. They watch our children so we can be a witness, and that needs special mention. My mother and father in particular have watched our children 5 straight nights! Now there's something special between grand kids and grandparents, but that's a lot of childcare and late nights. I am so thankful for their help and so thankful we have so many willing members of our Body to help the church to put on this performance. Thanks Mom and Dad. Thanks all you Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and other family members!
Moments With Pastor
Before we begin each Above All service, Pastor prays over the Apostles and Jesus. He understands the burden we all have as most people will be looking at Jesus and they will at least see us on the periphery. They are going to make their decision on walking forward to the altar at least partly on what they feel from us. Are we portraying the life of Christ in a meaningful and heartfelt way? If so, the crowd will grab hold of what we have to offer. That's why Pastor anoints us and prays a special blessing over us to be the vessels we need to be each night.
As Pastor prayed over us, he shared a testimony. The previous night a woman had gotten out of her wheelchair for the first time in her life. She walked for the first time! We portray a lot of miracles in this year's Above All, but that actually happened! That testimony emboldened us to go out there and give it our all. If God could do that, he could do anything! We just needed to embolden somebody's faith.
The Miracles Continue!
The entire performance, people were so invested and you could feel the intensity in the crowd. They were yearning and hopeful for something from God and God did not disappoint The entire cast were anointed and moving in the Spirit in ways like never before. At the end of the night, after we poured our lives out for this crowd, the crowd walked forward. Among them was a woman who was burdened with having to use a cane. She began to pray and felt the same Spirit that was anointing us and moving through that auditorium move on her. She may have come with a cane and heavy burdens, but she left without it having been healed and filled with God's Spirit.
More people were baptized and others received the Holy Ghost for the first time. It is happening every night at Above All and I really don't have the capacity to share it all the way it needs to be shared. It's like at the end of the Book of John:
And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen. (John 21:25)
God Can Bless You, Too
Above All is having an innumerable amount of miracles, healing and moves of God. We have sacrificed and opened ourselves up to deliver this message of Jesus Christ and our sacrifice is not coming back void. What else will happen at Above All? You'll have to come join us to find out for yourself! Otherwise, read these recaps and pray and believe and you too will receive what you desire. God can move anywhere, even on a blog! I pray today that each everyone of you will be blessed by these words and that God will anoint your lives. In Jesus Name! Amen.
We'll be back tomorrow with another written recap and our next Podcast will be up early this coming week as well. Until then, God Bless and Keep Searching!
