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!

Quote of the week:

"... the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy." Rev. 19:10
