The power of God on the streets gives access again

Encouraged by the outreach on October 18th (see recent entry with video) I went out on Thursday 23rd with other members of the church as part of our official outreach group expecting The Lord to reveal His love and power to more people. I had some words of knowledge that touched one young man, and I prayed for an elderly couple, John and Florence who testified to God’s healing touch upon them. Florence called me four days later to say that she was feeling much better after I had prayed for her to be healed of arthritis in her legs. She wanted to have prayer for something else and told me that her friend, another elderly lady who also lives in the same community of sheltered accommodation very close to our church wanted healing prayer. I went to see them with another member of our church and we prayed for Florence and her friend. There was a wonderful presence of God as we prayed. Florence felt God touch her again, and her friend also felt the presence of God. We were able to lead Florence’s friend to Jesus Christ. I am really encouraged that through the power of God on the streets He gave me access to minister to other people within a community again, and someone who I met through a person who testified of healing on the streets came to Christ through that witness as well.

There are at least two significant truths to be learnt from this: 1) Healings and miracles give access to witnessing to more people because they testify about Jesus Christ, and salvations can and do result. 2) Just one step of boldness in witnessing or praying with someone can open the door to God touching other lives for His glory. The ripple effect can be immense when God initiates something!

On Thursday 30th October I went into Wolverhampton. I met one Christian and told him I saw wheels. He told me that he and his family were about to move house. His leg was in a plaster. I prayed for him and he felt tingling. I encouraged him to go home, check his leg and prayerfully consider having the plaster removed! I also met an asian young man who I shared some prophetic words. Although he had been raised in a Christian home, he had been living a worldly life, and apparently never prayed the prayer of salvation. As I shared more, He knew that The Lord was revealing Himself to him. Revelation 19 : 10 says “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” He accepted Jesus Christ as personal Saviour and Lord, and I then asked him if he wanted to be filled with The Spirit, the baptism of The Holy Spirit. He said yes, and when I prayed for him he felt tingling, a clear sign that God was touching him. I’m learning that God doesn’t do things by halves when we allow Him to! People can get healed, saved, and filled with The Spirit (Acts1: 5 and John 7: 37-39) within less than five minutes!

This is a time that we must press in to get deeper with God. When we become more attracted to Jesus He becomes more attracted to us, not that He can love us anymore by anything we do, but spending time with Him and being intimate with Him helps us to get more in tune with Him and allows the oil of His presence to pour into us, even His very glory can overshadow us (Luke 1: 35) . As a result we can minister to people more fruitfully because there is then less of us and more of Him! Becoming more attracted to The Lord means falling more in love with him, hearing and obeying His Word and His voice, and receiving more of His sweet presence into our lives. James 4: 8 promises “Draw near to Him, and He will draw near to you.” God wants to change localities, communities, cities, and nations through an army of laid down lovers of Jesus Christ who don’t care about their own personal reputation, but will do anything for their Master because they love Him so much they “love not their lives unto death.” (Revelation 12 : 11) .

    Jesus is not the only prophet. God has sent many prophets to mankind to guide mankind. Believing in God, in itself, with or without a religion, with or without a prayer,
    can increase our chances to experience miracles. It is God who decides when to make a miracle to whom.

    Jesus was so much more than a prophet. By proclaiming Himself God (John 8: 58) He got crucified, the innocent Lamb shedding His blood as the punishment for our sins. In John 14; 6 Jesus says that He is “the way the truth and the life.” In Verse 7 He warns us that He is the only way to The Father. Romans 3: 23 : “All have fallen short of the glory of God.” No one can ever earn their way to Heaven. The good news is in the very next verse though, verse 24 : “being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” We are only justified before God if we have received Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, and turn from our sins.

    Well said, brother!

    Lord, I want your glory to overshadow me so that you can continue to minister through me… but even moreso, I want your glory because I just love spending time with you…
