My Lord and my God, we had a true move of the Holy Ghost in church yesterday morning. Not a lot of noise. Not a lot of singing. The glory fell, and all those that humbled themselves got a true touch from the Lord. It has been awhile. Oh, yes we have good services, but we had a move of the Holy Ghost for real yesterday. My soul still feels the effect!! The preacher did not get to preach. She was running the aisle, crying and praising God too. The young people/young adults got touched. The old ones got touched. Flesh and the devil were under arrest an unable to operate!! Some were on the floor. Some were at the altar. We did not need ushers. The Holy Ghost directed everything!! Liberty that only the Holy Ghost gives was present. It rained like for about an hour and a half, nonstop!
You could feel help and strength from the Lord touching souls. You could see the hand of God touching those that the enemy was trying to destroy. Tears running down cheeks. Repentance taking place. I saw souls lifting up hands in victory and that holy glow was on their faces. My Lord and My God. These things make true Pastors have joy on this journey. Seeing Gods people free and rejoicing before the Lord.
We had a visitor. She had never seen anything like this before, she said. Most of the Saints greeted her. I welcomed her to Holiness and invited her to come back.
There are days in ministry when it seems like everything is in vain.When it seems like nothing is working and it SEEMS like the devil and sin are winning. The more you give and expend, the more battles to fight. Then the Lord sends a refreshing, strengthens you and tells you to continue on in Holiness in His Name and your soul says, "Yes Sir". You look out at the people and they are magnifying and praising God in the beauty of Holiness, and your soul starts rejoicing all over again. To see the peace and joy of the Lord on the face of the sheep gladdens the heart of a shepherd.
If you don't know Jesus Christ in the pardon of your sins. If you do not know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, get to know Him. The wages of sin is death. It takes true repentance to come out of sin. God's word declares that which is flesh is flesh and that which is Spirit is Spirit. The word of God also declares, marvel not, you must be born again. And once sin is repented of, the sin has to be washed away. How? Acts 2:37-38, which reads, "
Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men, and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost."
Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling......come home.
