Entering in!

Thank you Lord!

This past week IMPACT! met together for an exciting time exploring God's Word and meeting with Him. We are working through Neil Anderson's Freedom in Christ Discipleship Course and last Friday we looked at session 5, dealing with the choices we make. The chapter covered the important teaching on the differences between the natural person, the spiritual person and the fleshly or wordly person as Paul describes in 1 Cor. 2. We learned that "although we still have urges that tend to pull us away from relying completely on God and following the promptings of His Spirit, we no longer have to give in to them but are free to choose."

Yesterday's meeting was yet another dynamic time with the Lord. He is beginning to free us even more in worship to flow with the Holy Spirit. He is giving us a greater sensitivity to His anointing and yesterday the Lord gave us a new song with which to worship Him. Prophetic songs and new songs are being given to our people and we are excited to increasingly learn how to move with the Holy Spirit and release His anointing in our times together with each other and with Him.

The Lord is speaking to us about the River of Revival and yesterday we looked at how God wants us to enter into His presence at the source. Studying Hebrews 10:19-24, the Lord showed us that we must enter His presence by the new and living way which is:

  1. With confidence
  2. By the blood of Jesus
  3. By the body of Jesus
  4. Through our great Priest
  5. With sincerity of heart
  6. With full assurance of faith
  7. With a cleansed heart and body
  8. With unswerving hope
  9. By God's faithful promise

We praise God that we can meet with Him in the Most Holy Place at the source of the River of Revival!

We are waiting for the recognition of KLF as a charity by the tax authorities after which we can then proceed with the application for a licence and for formal recognition as a charity organisation by the city. This may take 4 -6 weeks.

With the vision the Lord has given us we are well aware of the fact that we will need to move to a larger facility soon. We praise God for His provision and look forward to what He has in store for us. Thank you Lord that you withhold nothing from those whose walk is blameless! (Psalm 84:11)
