We are live with worship. Classic southern gospel choir music getting everyone energized and ready for another amazing night connecting with God. You can sense the presence of God. Feels like a powder keg waiting to explode! Going into a deeper level of worship now. Presence is so thick right now.
Rev. Rema Duncan
We have the potential to become highly effective. Not because we have all the answers, but because we don't. I don't know is a powerful statement that we can use. It reveals that it's not about us. We can't solve everyone's problems. We don't have the answer to every question. Acknowledging these truths is the first step to allowing God, the one who can solve and answer anything, to do the work that is necessary.
Omniscience is reserved for omnipotence. Only the all powerful can be the all knowing. Go has all the answers and has the power to provide them. It's His Kingdom. It's His church. It's His ministry. It's his calling. It's His saints. All we have to do is serve the one who owns it all. Listening to God will teach us exactly what to do and when we need to do it.
It's not about what you know. It's about who you know. All the research, the planning, the searching for knowledge is fruitless without knowing God. All of our actions are hollow without His authority behind it. However, we have access to God and His authority. When we are filled with His Spirit, we have access to the all-knowing and all-powerful God.
Peter, when he went to the Temple, came across the lame man. He didn't tell the man he had the solution. He said he knew the One who had the solution. In the Name of Jesus, rise up and walk. When we are filled with the Spirit, we are tapped into the mind of God. Before he talked with the lame man, Peter was locked in on him. God fixed Peter on the man. The leading of the Spirit led Peter to him and empowered him to do what was necessary. There are people and situations that God is waiting to lead you to and empower you to accomplish. All we have to do is put our mind aside and take on the mind of God. All we have to do is cede our will to His will. Our word to His Word.
God is looking to do a new thing in our lives. We just have to get beyond ourselves and what our expectations are. Peter stepped out onto water because God called him out. Mary accepted a virgin conception because God call her. God has a new and amazing thing ready just for you. All you have to do is step out. All you have to do is accept the call.
This message has energized the crowd. People are laying hands on each other and the Holy Ghost is flowing. People are embracing this message and the new thing that God has for them. They are letting go of what they think they know and letting God take control. Will we do the same?
It has been nearly 30 minutes of straight praise and worship. Lots of prayer. Lots of moving in the Spirit. Laying on of hands. Mighty move of God.
Rev. Aaron Bounds
Starts by proclaiming that a mass revival is on the way. From corner to corner, the globe is going to be exposed to the mighty move of the Holy Ghost.
Using the story of Joseph and the dream of Pharaoh, he tells us that some of us are like Pharaoh. We've been given a vision/dream/hope/idea but we don't see the full picture. Pharaoh needed a messenger from God to give him the full picture. God has a messenger for each of us to reveal in full the promise that God has for you.
Going back in time he addresses the dreams Joseph had as a child. His brothers and father didn't embrace the dream. They resented the dream. They tried to destroy the messenger. There will be people who will try to destroy your dream/vision/hope/calling. They'll do it out of resentment. They'll do it out of desire for complacency. They'll do it for bitterness, fear and more.
As Joseph was about to be murdered, Judah spoke up. He refused to let the message die. He allowed the hope to remain. He opened the door for the future to become a reality. He convinced the brothers to sell Joseph off into slavery and, eventually the promise was fulfilled.
Judah means praise. When our hope, our dream our calling, our vision seems threatened; praise will lead us out. Praise will bring us to our promise. Praise will open the door to fulfillment. Praise will overcome every attack of the enemy. Praise makes the difference.
Remember, Christ came out of Judah. God chooses to come from praise. He inhabits praise. He gets involved with those who praise Him. If you want a move of God that will break you through the obstacles and circumstances of your life, get into a praising mindset. God will inhabit right where you are at and make the difference for you and those around you.
Speaking prophetically now, he tells us that their is a wave of redemption coming to our churches. Wayward sons and daughters are coming home. Ministers and saints who have turned away will turn back. God has a revival for our families and churches. He's bringing our loved ones back home. Just praise Him in advance!
There is an harvest coming. But it is going to take a Monday through Saturday approach. Every day throughout the week, souls are waiting for someone to bring them into the waiting arms of a loving God. Once we get that approach, Sunday will become a celebration of what has been done throughout the week rather than a day where we labor to get the little available.
