May Partner Letter 2016
We have seen many wonderful works of God over the past 38 years, but we must continue to contend for the move of God TODAY! Kenneth E. Hagin said it like this: “There is a move of the Spirit of God that will be lost to this present generation unless they are taught and led into it.”
Dear friends, we are the ones who must teach and lead the following generation so they will know the move of the Spirit of God. Through the help of the Holy Spirit – in teaching the Word, believing and making a place for the supernatural ministry and gifts of the Holy Spirit, we are well equipped for the task! As Jesus said in Acts 1:8, “But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses ….to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth.”
We wanted to share some of the great testimonies in the meetings over the last few months – just glorious, awesome, life-changing times!
In one church in Missouri, we saw at least 25 filled with the Holy Spirit. Many kids filled the altar in the Sunday morning service, on their faces before God. One teenager testified, “I’m on fire for the Lord”! Another young man, brought to tears as he experienced the move of God in his life, shared his heart with the congregation – it was stirring & life changing!
In Louisiana, after two services on Sunday, at least 30 people received the gift of the Holy Spirit (including the parents of the associate pastors)! In the evening service, the altar was full of kids, with teenagers repenting and testifying of coming back to live for Jesus. Another person from a halfway-house ministry was instantly healed! We still had one more service on Monday, and after Monday night’s meeting, one grandmother told me that her two grandkids had been scheduled to play a baseball game that night, but they had told their parents ‘We want to go to Church instead’!
Later that same night, another mother then told me that it was her little boy’s 9th birthday on Monday. She shared this: “On our way home from church last night I asked him what he wanted to do for his birthday. He said, ‘I want to go to church again’!”
They were all in church Monday night. Instead of playing sports or having a birthday party, they wanted to go to church! They were hungry for God, and seeking His face – Glory, Glory!
These are just a few testimonies; everywhere we go, we are seeing the hand of God touch people – young and old. Every generation must know the move of the Spirit for themselves – there’s a Band of Believers rising up!
To God be the Glory!
