Last week in our monthly church prayer meeting some-one shared this passage from Isaiah and it seemed to me to be a very timely scripture for these days.
1 Comfort, comfort my people,
says your God.
2 Speak tenderly to
and proclaim to her
that her hard service has been completed,
that her sin has been paid for,
that she has received from the LORD's
double for all her sins.
3 A voice of one calling:
the way for the LORD;
make straight in the
a highway for our God.
4 Every valley shall be raised
every mountain and hill made low;
the rough ground shall become
the rugged places a plain.
5 And the glory of the LORD will
and all mankind together will see it.
God is restoring and doing something new. See my previous post. The fires are spreading. God is restoring the ministry of healing and making his people hungry for Him. Already there are churches holding nightly healing meetings. A church I visited on Sunday night have been meeting daily for 100 days and have seen 1000 people come to Christ in that time and many people healed! Other churches here, here and here are holding powerful meetings and spreading the fire of God’s Spirit.
In my church on Sunday a couple gave testimony in the morning service about their visit to a church in Birmingham where they had got involved with a church that set up a healing tent in the high street. Prayer was offered for passers by and shoppers, and we were told that around 100 people were prayed for. There was not one moment when some-one wasn’t being ministered to.
The vicar then asked for people to make themselves known if they were interested in such a venture! Our church sits right on a busy shopping area and people pass by constantly. We occasionally have outdoor services in front of the main church doors but wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could offer prayer and see people healed and set free before they even set foot in the church! Maybe that’s the way it should be. Jesus sends us OUT! Come Holy Spirit and anoint us to go out with Your power and Presence.
