The power of the testimony

Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. Psalm 145:3

This has been another exciting week! The Brazilian dance group, Tribus, led an amazing 3-day dance workshop at CZF and many were blessed as they learned to worship in dance! Tribus will be performing at CZF on the 1st August. Check here for more details...

On Saturday a group of us hit the streets with Tribus to reach people with the Good News! As Tribus and others danced on the pedestrian zone in the middle of Frankfurt, we had opportunities to witness to interested people and reveal God's glory! We praise God for the spiritual impact we made and for the many lives that were touched with God's presence, power and love! Hallelujah!

The Lord is continuing to speak to us about revival and yesterday He showed us the following:
  1. Revival is when people are saturated with God and overflow with Him.
  2. To be saturated with God we need to see His glory - His presence, personality and power.
  3. When God reveals His glory to us, we become witnesses of that revelation of God.
  4. The revelation of God that we witness becomes our testimony.
  5. The testimony of God is the spirit of prophecy. Rev. 19:10
  6. Because God is unchanging, the testimony of God becomes a present reality when accompanied by faith. Heb. 4:2-6
  7. Every testimony of God's glory is powerful - whether it be the Old "Testimony", the New "Testimony" or present day testimonies!
  8. Faith takes hold of all the testimonies of God!
  • 3 things happen when we value and honour the testimony:
  1. The testimony will strengthen our faith. Psalm 77; Heb. 2:1
  2. The testimony stirs us to worship God. Psalm 145
  3. The testimony motivates us to testify and bear witness. Psalm 145
  • Faith in the testimony leads to an encounter with God. John 5:37-40
  • We are called to be witnesses of God who have encountered Him and not advocates who just know about Him!

We are called to seek God's glory and become witnesses of God's presence, personality and power so that we can reveal His glory through our testimony!

We praise God for continuing to reveal His presence and power in our meetings! People are being healed, saved and delivered as they witness the revelation of God's glory! Hallelujah!

Quote of the week:

"All you have made will praise you, O Lord; your saints will extol you. They will tell of the glory of your kingdom and speak of your might, so that all men may know of your mighty acts and the glorious splendor of your kingdom." Psalm 145:10-12 (emphasis mine)

Praise be to God!

On Sunday we had a brazilian dance group called TRIBUS join us at our meeting. We were blessed to have them with us and be inspired to worship in dance. Tribus is leading an exciting dance-workshop from the 15th - 17th July at CZF from 9am - 4pm. You can find out more about these passionate worshippers here...

On Sunday we experienced great freedom in our worship and the Lord spoke to us about looking to Abraham as our example of a worshipper after God's own heart (Isaiah 51:1,2). Looking at Genesis 22:1-19, the Lord showed us that true worshippers are:

  • an obedient people. Gen. 22:3
  • a people of faith. Gen. 22:4
  • a sacrificing people. Gen. 22:10

Further, the Lord showed us that times of testing are an opportunity to receive an even deeper revelation of God! We praise God for His awesome revelation and for teaching us to be passionate worshippers.

Faith Camp '09 is approaching quickly and over 30 of us will be attending this exciting week of worship, teaching, community, revelation, encountering God, connecting with others from all over the world and loads of fun. Check here for more info...

After our Summer Break from 27 July - 10 August we will have pastors Les and Dot Mitchell with us to lead and train us in prayer at Treffpunkt Leben on the 21st and 22nd August. Check here for more info...

Revealing God's Glory

Glory to the God of miracles, signs and wonders!

We are excited! Last week God revealed His glory to us in many different ways and many different settings. Hallelujah! On Monday a group of us went to the streets of Frankfurt-Bockenheim, looking for opportunities to overflow with God by praying for the sick, speaking to the lost about God's love, caring for the poor and simply being available for the Holy Spirit to do His work through us. We praise God for the people He touched with His love and power!

On Monday and Tuesday evening part of our worship team joined Roy Fields for his 2 meetings in Frankfurt. The meetings were very powerful and many were saved and healed. Glory to God!

On Wednesday, a small group went to Frankfurt Airport to do a Bible study on "Gates" after which they prayed for the gates and spiritual portals of Frankfurt. God is calling us to take spiritual authority over the various gates and to prepare the ground for His glory.

"Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of Glory may come in." Psalm 24:7

Yesterday we had another New Life Celebration to baptise a new life in Christ. Our Kingdom Kids also performed a powerful dance and gave testimonies about being "Knights of God's Kingdom." You can see the dance and pictures of the baptism here...

The Lord spoke to us yesterday about revealing His glory through our testimonies of the revelation of His glory - His presence, is power and His personality. This is what He showed us:

  1. When God reveals His glory to us, we become witnesses of His glory.
  2. That which we have witnessed of God's glory (His presence, power and personality) becomes our testimony (the word testimony comes from the Latin word, testis, meaning witness).
  3. God's revelation to us stirs us to worship Him (Rom. 11:33-36) and be witnesses of His revelation to us (Acts 22:1-21).
  4. The Bible is a testimony of God's personality and power and is divided into the old testimony and the new testimony.
  5. The Holy Spirit quickens the testimony of God and makes it a present reality because God is the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb.13:8).
  6. The testimony of God is the spirit of prophecy. Rev.19:10
  7. When we testify of God's revelation of His glory to us, we release the power of God with the potential to change people's lives if people believe - faith realises God's past revelation and makes it a present reality!

We praise God for the people who have received healing, salvation and deliverance because they believed our testimonies of God's revelation of His glory to us! Hallelujah!

Yesterday evening we had another opportunity to overflow with God as we ministered to the poor and needy at our monthly homeless mission. Glory to God for the lives that are being changed because they are being touched with God's glory through us! Thank you Lord!
