Has anyone else noticed, I wondered today, the resurgence of the manifestation of The Holy Spirit in our meetings?
I’m particularly conscious of the rise in Deliverance Ministry of late.
Nearly every meeting report from certain quarters is awash with reports of Deliverance, especially in the radiant faces of those delivered — often subsequently saved or rededicated to The LORD.
There is a fresh Authority from The Holy Spirit that is bringing a fresh Fear of The LORD with it!
I have even read of this new found Fear of The LORD, causing an Acts-like Fear of God running through Churches, Ministers and Congregations alike.
The story of Ananias and Sapphira springs to mind as an example, although nothing so serious as that has been reported thus far. [Acts 5:1-11]
I believe we, the Remnant Church, are right now entering a modern Age of Acts, in which The Holy Spirit will manifest His Giftings in a way not seen since, possibly, the early days of the First Church in Jerusalem!
This manifestation will indeed result in a truly Holy Fear of The LORD, gripping The Church and leading us into a deep, deep Revival of The Church — The Ekklesia — and of the outside world too!
No longer will we beg for Healing or Deliverance “if it’s Your Will, LORD”, but rather The Ekklesia will begin to realise her true and her full authority as The Bride of Christ.
Modern Disciples are about to get really serious about exercising The Gifts of Healing and Deliverance.
Modern Prophets — many quite unknown right now — are about to become the prophets God ordained them to be before time began — revealing, disclosing, tearing down, and correcting before planting and building up again as The LORD intended!
A modern-day Church of Acts — that’s its name, and it’s description. A church which ACTS as much as the original!
