Joshua 3:4b, 5 Joshua knew what to do when he got to the river, because he had been following and watching Moses, but when he got to the Promised Land, he did not know what to do, because he had never been there before. He needed God to tell him what to do and where to go because it was new to him. We are in a new place in a new day. Our leaders were never where we are going. Like in Joshua’s day, we must consecrate and sanctify ourselves because God is going to do amazing things among us. We do not know what revival looks like, because what happened in the past will not happen that way again. Joel 2:15-17 We need to remove the reproach of Jesus from Lancaster County caused by ministries that have gone wrong, or by ministries that became distracted or lost their vision, or by the world speaking disparagingly about Jesus. God speaks. (Ex. 30:22-32) The fear of the Lord is an abiding Presence, the beginning of wisdom, a recognition that God is here. God’s anointing is holy. Just as Moses had to be consecrated to anoint and sanctify the tabernacle and its contents, we need to consecrate ourselves to get ready for the anointing, because the anointing does not go on the flesh. Emotions and professionalism are not substitutes for the anointing. Pastor Dale shared two experiences of the anointing telling him something that he needed to know. Do not allow a little prophecy to satisfy you, but ask for the strong anointing. Do not live without prophecy. In Gen. 18:17 God said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing?” In II Kings 4:25 the woman laid her dead son on the prophet’s bed, said “it is well”, and went to find the prophet. The prophet said that God had hidden from him why her soul was in deep distress. Sanctify yourself for the real anointing, for prophecy, for a miracle. Mary Hudson, Pastor Dale, Keith Hudson, Pastor Bob, and Bruce Ladebu gave a prophetic words. Step in to take possession of what belongs to you. Offering Sermon: Amos 3:7 Amos tells us that God does nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants, the prophets. What has God not done because His prophets did not share it? When we give, we give to a living God, and it puts a draw on God’s anointing. Jesus prophesied to the woman at the well after she gave Him a drink of water. An angel showed up to a man who prayed and gave alms.
Bruce Ladebu preaches on: “Are You Being Pulled Back and Forth?” Why would we settle for anything less than God? Bruce preaches on the stages of dynamic change (kingdom dynamics). CWI is to bring transformation regionally. There must be a desperation for God, His Presence, His touch. We are designed for the supernatural. He tells powerful experiences of the supernatural power of God at work. SEEK, LOOK, BE DESPERATE. Get out of your comfort zone. Desperation brings revelation. Revelation brings confrontation. Examples of men who faced confrontation are Joseph and David. Every time you get a revelation, you will get a confrontation, whether it is from Satan, the flesh, your mind, or other people. Obey and submit to God to get through confrontation and don’t allow fear to control you. Religion is getting comfortable, but we are to invade the darkness, which takes confrontation. When you are sent, there will be a test. We are tested by fire. Confrontation brings transformation, changing from the world’s way or our way to God’s way. The final stage is manifestation and restoration. We see a greater manifestation of God and can bring restoration to others. There were prophetic words and laying on of hands for people who wanted to be able to handle confrontation and be transformed by the power of God to fulfill their destiny. Offering Sermon: Amos 3:7 Prophecy indicates that God is moving. Just as in II Chron. 20:20 sometimes God will move in a unique way. Believe in God and in His prophets, in their prophetic office. Honor the anointing and the office of the prophet. We need prophecy to live. Whoever receives a prophet, receives a prophet’s reward. God warns by His prophets and by His Spirit. We need to be listening.
Pastor Dale teaches about how the anointing had been handled by Elijah and Elisha and Gehazi in II Kings 2:8-14 and II Kings 13:14-21, and how we should and should not handle it.
Pastor Bob also preaches on the anointing and speaks prophetically about this new year and decade. It is a year of risks, a time of pushing in the realm of intercession, and of praying in tongues and expecting interpretation. He, Keith, and Mary spoke prophetically over individuals.
Keith Hudson tells the testimony of his salvation experience and how much God loves us. Get God connections in your life. Is. 48:6, 7 says that God has made us hear new things, even hidden things. Revival is now, waiting for you to move into it. What does it take to hear and see the new things? It takes God’s anointing. The congregation’s eyes and ears were anointed with oil to receive the seeing (and hearing) anointing.
Listen as Pastor Dale teaches on giving in a unique way through Bible examples and his personal experiences. He also teaches on the need for the prophetic gift. Anna the prophetess and Simeon probably birthed Jesus’ coming. Jehoshaphat received God’s help through a prophet. Prophetic words can warn and direct and help in turning points.
Pastor Bob ministered prophetically and then shared: “In the Door of 2010 into the Advancement of God’s Kingdom”. We are drawing on God, and we need more and deeper revelation. He ministered the prophecy for CWI: supernatural favor to God’s faithful ones, seasons of natural and supernatural impartations, seasons of separation for many, and the moving of the Holy Spirit to understand the fear of the Lord.
This is a new decade. It’s important how we start it. God is going to do surgery on our hearts. (Prov. 4:23) We need to allow God to take the anger, resentment, bitterness, and pride out of our hearts. Ezekiel 36:25, 26 tells us that God will cleanse us, give us a new heart and a new spirit. God is cleansing the pulpits and down through the pews. He and Mary ministered to individuals and couples and then the pastors and Keith and Mary laid hands on each person to receive a new heart- cleansed spiritually and healed in the physical.
