I had such an interesting day yesterday (August 31)…..One of my friends called me to go to a barbecue and I really didn’t want to go because I am just getting ready to move and I want to get everything done for it. However, I heard the still small voice inside of me “Say GO”…. So I decided to take the day off and go. At the barbecue I was sitting with my friend and some other people who I didn’t know, just talking…somehow the topic of baptism came up and we were discussing the different doctrines found in the church. I could sense the Spirit start to move among the group, His presence became very strong!! So I began to explain what baptism was according to what they did in bible times and what we still do now….Full emergence in water….the symbolism of the death on the cross, the burial in the grave and resurrection of life through Christ.….then one of the gentlemen put up his hand and said I want to get baptized…He looked at me and said baptize me….then four others made the same request. Well, the Holy Spirit was there and I figured that’s why He brought me there; so I decided to go ahead and baptize these people; After ensuring they were fully aware of the relationship they were entering in to…then into the pool we went. Heaven now has five new births that they are rejoicing over…Thank you Holy Spirit!!
I also got a report a few days ago that one of the ladies that was baptized received healing at the same time….She said that she had been struggling with back pain but after she was baptized, the pain disappeared. Praise be to God!!
I am trusting the Lord for the multitudes of souls and I am looking forward to Reviving His Heart throughout the nations and healing the brokenness found in mankind’s heart, soul and bodies. I have slayed the bear and the lion in private…Now by the Grace of God I will take on the Giants of this world…..Humble beginnings builds strong foundations!! And my Lord has been raising me up for such a time as this. May my life always bring Him Glory!!!
Love & Blessing ♥
