We are facing another “New Year 2016”! Another exciting year working with Jesus Christ! Another year working in the power of the Holy Spirit! Another year following our Heavenly Father’s Plans! Another exciting year of “Signs, Wonders and Miracles!
At our Conference, the message that I was given to encourage Pastors and Christians was entitled, “The Adventure of Being a Pastor” and “Christians”. And this has been my life ever since I received Jesus as my Saviour and received the Holy Spirit. Our Churches are supposed to be a place where the Miracles happen.
Several years ago when I was preaching in the Prayer Palace, Toronto ON, a man brought a friend to the service. He had never been in a church before. His friend had witnessed to him and prayed with him for Salvation and brought him to the church which was over 2 hours away to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. I prayed with him and he received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and fell to the floor speaking in tongues.
Three weeks later, he telephoned me to ask me, “Can you tell me where I can find a church where miracles happen. He explained that the past Sunday he went to a Pentecostal Church in his city. At the end of the service, he asked the pastor, “When do the miracles happen?” The Pastor said, “What do you mean?” He replied again,“When do the miracles happen?”
The Pastor said, “The service is over.” He said, “Then I’m not coming back here!” He had seen “signs, wonders and miracles” happen when I was doing ministry. He was one of the miracles himself. He asked, “Is there a church in my town where the miracles happen?” Unfortunately, there was none! So, I asked him, “Will you take on a mission for me? Will you go to a different church every Sunday until you find a church where the miracles happen so I can refer people to that church?” He agreed. I have been waiting for almost six years for his call!
That is the problem we are faced with today. Every person who is saved and Baptized with the Holy Spirit, born again of water and the Spirit (Jn. 3:3,5,7) is a walking miracle. Jesus equips all of His witnesses.
Make 2016 the time to start your "adventure with Jesus". Always remember that in your adventure, you are the Miracle and the Holy Spirit is with you and will tell you what to say in all circumstances.
"But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you." (Matt. 10:19-20)
Also if you would like to receive Salvation, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, healing or and of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, I invite you to come to one of our local house meetings. Feel free to contact me.
Happy New Year!
Yours in Jesus,
