Alvin and the outreach team shared about the outreach at Muskwachese:
-many people gave their hearts to Jesus and received prayer, 150-200 people attended!
Pastor Pauline preached:
Jacob left Beersheba and set out for Haran. When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep.
He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. There above it stood the LORD, and he said: “I am the LORD, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying. Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring. I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I was not aware of it.” He was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven.” Early the next morning Jacob took the stone he had placed under his head and set it up as a pillar and poured oil on top of it. He called that place Bethel, though the city used to be called Luz. Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me and will watch over me on this journey I am taking and will give me food to eat and clothes to wear so that I return safely to my father’s house, then the LORD will be my God and this stone that I have set up as a pillar will be God’s house, and of all that you give me I will give you a tenth.”(NIV)
-this stairway is a representation of our prayers.
-there is nothing more powerful in the world than prayer with fasting.
-if you pray sincerely and fervently things will happen, the Heavens will open, the devil cannot stop it. Prayer is God given and God directed.
-remember the curtain was torn at the crucifixion and now we believers can intercede with the Father.
-it is prayer that opens us up to God’s power, either by praying in the spirit or with our understanding. It does appear that praying in the spirit is more effective. Our prayers often
-Psalms: many prayers by King David.
-John 17: Jesus power ful prayer
-Math 6: Jesus on disciples request taught them how to pray
-the bible says we hve not because we ask not, this is where prayer kicks in…
-the angels carry our prayers to God and return with answers
prayer has interaction between: good angels, satanic kingdom – review in the book of Daniel to understand the answer to his prayer was delayed by 21 days due to the prince of persia and Michael the archangel had to intervene.
isaih 59: unconfessed sin? God’s ears will not hear your prayers
psalm:6 If we harbour sin in our heart God will not hear my prayers.
So we need to pray effective powerful prayers so that we can be delivered, we need to cry out to be delivered from sickness, and disease, they are all the reason of horrible and unclean spirits effecting and entering the lives of many people.
Many of our sicknesses have been brought to us by the enemy, unclean spirits, spirits of infirmities to torment us. They cannot get access to our spirit if we are born again but they can affect our thinking.
We must learn to pray in authority, we don’t pray for the enemy to leave, WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN POWER AND AUTHORITY so now we command the spirits to GO in Jesus name:
You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.(NIV)
I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.(NIV)
We are authorized and have the power, we just need to stand in it and speak!
Mathew 28: all authority has been given to me, therefor go and make disciples of all nations….
And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues;(NIV)
they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”(NIV)
RISE up church, miracles and wonders and amazing things will take place if you will speak the word of God in truth and love, the world is perishing unless we go out with our mission.
1 Thessalonians 5:17
God’s Angels are attached to God’s word: the meaning of ‘Angel’ is messenger.when we pray the angels are attached to the word to perform it. God speaks that word.
Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?(NIV)
2 Corinthians 4:4
The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.(NIV)
We have AUTHORITY and can speak to whatever is going on in our lives.
The question from the Father to us is, “so, what can I do for you”? ask, seek, knock and the door will be opened to you.
