Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord (2 Corinthians 3:17-18).
The Lord is obviously up to something fresh among us! Let me start from the beginning here. I attend a Word and Spirit meeting last week in Gatlinburg, Tennessee held by Randall Grier Ministries. During the last meeting on Thursday, August 13th, Randall had a Word from the Lord for all present. He said…Your best days are 3 days ahead of you. You will walk into a freshness and an anointing…you will step into the glory…
Our Saturday night service was a normal service. We had praise and worship and I preached the Word, gave an altar call, and closed the service. But on the third day from last Thursday, during our morning services on Sunday, the Spirit of God fell on us during praise and worship! And we did not have a normal service. The moving of the Spirit was rich! It spilled over into our 2nd service at 11:00 AM. Again, the Holy Spirit fell on us and the Glory of God manifested.
Again, I did not preach during our 2nd service. The Spirit of God had an agenda, and we ministered to many people. Refreshing from heaven filled us all! At the close of the 2nd service, we had several born again and Spirit-baptized.
I believe that we are in the beginning stages of a fresh move of the Spirit among us. I believe the Lord is preparing us for the reaping of the final harvest of souls before the return of Jesus.
It is as though we’ve just put our foot into the river of the Spirit that is here. Now is the time to consecrate ourselves fully to do the will of the Father! When you come to our services, come with an expectation that the Father is going to meet us in a powerful way. Bring the sick, bring those bound by drugs,alcohol, and other addictions, and bring those who are emotionally scarred. I believe the Lord will touch them in a powerful way. The power of God is rising and we need to ride the crest of this wave right into the rapture of the church.
I encourage you to spend more time praying, particularly praying in the spirit. We’re going to see some great demonstrations of God’s power. I believe that God is beginning to sovereignly move among us. Let’s take full advantage of what He is doing. Pray before you attend the meetings. Tell the Lord that you want all that He has for you and all that He has for all of us!
I am out of my conservative comfort zone! I sense the Lord strongly urging me to allow the Spirit of God to direct our every service. Please help me by praying for our services, for the Word of God to impact us richly, and for the Holy Spirit to manifest in spiritual gifts as He wills.
We are in the outer edges of what I believe will culminate in another Great Spiritual Awakening in our nation and across the globe that will usher in the Rapture of the church. Let’s go after God with everything within us!
Come and pray with me in our prayer room before the services. Let’s expect God’s best every time we meet!
I’ll leave you today with this quote from 2 Chronicles at the dedication of Solomon’s Temple. We’re going to see the Glory of the Lord manifest in a similar way in the days ahead of us. Let’s prepare ourselves!
Then the priests left the Holy Place. All the priests who were present had purified themselves, whether or not they were on duty that day. And the Levites who were musicians—Asaph, Heman, Jeduthun, and all their sons and brothers—were dressed in fine linen robes and stood at the east side of the altar playing cymbals, lyres, and harps. They were joined by 120 priests who were playing trumpets.The trumpeters and singers performed together in unison to praise and give thanks to the Lord. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals, and other instruments, they raised their voices and praised the Lord with these words: “He is good! His faithful love endures forever!” At that moment a thick cloud filled the Temple of the Lord. The priests could not continue their service because of the cloud, for the glorious presence of the Lord filled the Temple of God (2 Chronicles 5:11-14 -NLT)
