Healing Encounter

Glory to God!

On Sunday we had our first Healing Encounter, a special meeting devoted to praying for the sick and making room for the Holy Spirit to minister to us. We believe that Jesus came to reveal the reality of the King and His kingdom by "preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness among the people" (see Matthew 4:23-25). In order to continue His ministry, the Holy Spirit was sent by the Father in the name of Jesus for the Church to represent her King and His kingdom (see John 14:26). Therefore, we believe that as we preach the reality of our King and His kingdom, He will prove His word with "signs, wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will" Hebrews 2:4. Hallelujah!

After a powerful time of worship, Vicky spoke to us about the goodness of God. In her message entitled, "God is good" she showed us that people either question the goodness of God or live by faith in the goodness of God. Either view will determine our walk with God and how we interpret life. Vicky established that God is indeed good and that His purpose for us is not to steal, kill and destroy but to give us life - fullness of life! (see John 10:10). Looking at Jeremiah 17:7&8 and Philippians 4:4-7, Vicky encouraged us to trust in God and in His goodness so that even in times of trouble we can experience the Lord's peace and can rest in His goodness. After hearing her own, personal experience of God's goodness, others were invited to share their testimonies of God's intervention in their lives - stories of salvation, healing, and encounters with the love of God. We then invited people to share words of knowledge and prophetic words after which we prayed for people and made room for the Holy Spirit to minister to us. It was an amazing time! People received healing, salvation and many had  a significant encounter with God. Hallelujah!

We praise God for this journey we are on with Him and for using each part of the Body to glorify His name and further His kingdom!
