Year of Prayer: Obey

Sunday January 1, 2017

Larry Hostetter shared a testimony of taking authority over death in the name of Jesus Christ. Pastor Sydney shared some prophetic insights into 2017. We will reap where others have sown. There will be shakings. He encouraged us to pray over the news we read and hear. He declared 2017 to be a year of prayer. Jesus prayed that His will would be done on earth as it is in heaven. God hears our cry. Lift others up to Him. We speak in an awakening to God and the things of God. Islamic nations will not be known as Islamic years from now. Jesus caused multiplication to feed the five thousand (Mark 6:30-44). There were twelve baskets left over, more than enough. God wants to show off. The key to miracles is obedience to God and to His Word, spoken and written. Pastor Syd shared about an elderly woman who was choking and how he obeyed the prompting of the Lord to pray in the Spirit and to take authority over death. The woman came out of unconsciousness and could breath without anyone helping her in the natural, and she was okay. Be prepared and ready to obey. Follow God’s promptings. Pastor Syd also told of a time when he was just recently filled with the Holy Spirit. He was not a pastor at the time. He had torn his ACL and reinjured it playing flag football. It was swollen, painful, and could not bend. He remembered just learning about taking authority, and he laid hands on it and commanded it to be whole. The swelling went down immediately, and the pain left, and he could not make it hurt! Thank You, Jesus! After he started pastoring, he prayed for a three or four year old child, who was brain damaged. He prayed for the child to have normal brain activity and blood flow. For the first time in her life, her forehead was warm and pink. She was healed and caught up developmentally with the other children her age. OBEY!
