Let us give thanks. It is Thankful Thursday.
This month, September, we will share our thanks with Iris of Grace Alone. Next month, October, I can't believe I'm talking October, we will be back here at Spiritually Unequal Marriage and then in November we will all meet up with Laurie of Women Taking A Stand.So, I have to share this experience with you or I’m just going to burst.
Our church has a missions person, her name is Lisa. She is a woman after God’s own heart. She is passionate about telling people about Jesus. Right now, she is in the country of Nepal along with another member of our church, Simon.
These two from our church are teaching alongside two Nepalese Christians. Last night as they were gathered for teaching in a large group of the Nepalese people about 800 or so, something absolutely amazing happened. During this service, the two men who are Christians from Nepal were in the audience and were actually bringing healing to some of the people and there were some demonic forces that were being fought against and cast out…. (I know. This sounds wild. Like right out of the Bible)
Well as this was going on my friends Lisa and Simon were on the stage along with one of the native guys who is a Christian. In the middle of the teaching this guy stops and says….. Now get this…
“Here comes the power of God.”
He felt it descending upon them.
In that second, my friend Lisa’s eyes rolled into the back of her head. Her entire body stiffened as straight as a board and she fell straight back on the floor. Simon, rushed to her to help her but the Christian Nepalese guy said, “NO, don’t touch.”
Lisa remained unconscious for four minutes.
When she finally came to consciousness, she told Simon, “I went to the throne room of God.”
Did you get that?
She then, left the stage and went into the audience to the people out there whom God showed her and she began to do healing as well.
Simon called his wife last night and that is how I got the story. Lisa said, “I will never be the same. This changes everything.”
Simon told his wife that the principalities of the darkness are everywhere and more prevalent than we know here in America. He said to her and to us, “Just pray…. Pray against the powers of the darkness.”
I am sharing this with you because I want you to know just how powerful our God is. He has given to us the ability to fight the powers of darkness, to call down the power of God and He is begging us to do so.
I burst into tears as this story was told to me today and I have begged God to teach me how to pray. To really pray. To live constantly in the spirit and……
Rock my world so radically that I will never be the same.
We need God and we just need to let go of all the small stuff we are desperately clutching at, trying to control, then stand back as someone shouts,
“Here comes the power of God.”
Are you ready? I’m ready and I am scared but I want to visit that throne room and live a radically changed life.
Love you my friends. Let Jesus bring your healing this very hour. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
