Another young man had server pain in his jaw. He came to the altar for prayer. While we were praying, the Holy Ghost hit this young man. He went leaping, jumping and shouting because he was healed by the power of God! This caused great rejoicing in the church. Many of the saints joined in dancing and shouting with this brother. It was awesome! As the altar call went on, many people lives were being touched. This one lady came to the altar so bound. She could not even smile. The guilt of sin and the shame of her past gripped her until she could no longer forgive or love herself. As we began to share about God’s amazing love and grace, tears began to fall from this woman eyes. The more we talked to her, the more God’s word began to hammer away at the chains that bound her to the lie that she could never be free or loved. As God’s love broke through, this woman lifted up her hands and forgave herself! Then she opened her heart and let Jesus come in. He gloriously saved her and set her free! There was a smile on her face, and she was glowing like the morning sun! God had given her a new beginning!
At this point, people were all over the altar and the church getting prayer! Our sons Melvin Jr. and Isaiah helped to pray for people with us as the Spirit of the Lord was moving! Young people were getting filled with the Holy Ghost! Children five and six years old were falling out under the power of God, crying and speaking in tongues. Teenagers were making choices to serve God, and many were set free from the bondages of this world! God was restoring dreams in the lives of people. He was giving them a vision to work for him and to take their place of ministry in the house of God. The Holy Ghost truly had the right of way in the services. God was just moving on whoever wanted Him! There was a woman who had severe pain in her stomach. God took her pain away! He not only healed her, but he filled her with the Holy Ghost!
My friends time would not allow us to tell you of all the families God put back together, the lives He healed and filled with the Holy Ghost. God orchestrated these meetings. He was in the midst of it all having His way and getting the glory! All we can say is “There is a river whose streams make glad the city of our God! Yes, there is a river whose streams make glad the city of our God! It came and it healed me. It came and refreshed me, and it came and it washed my sins away! So I will rejoice. I will rejoice and be glad!”
God bless you and thank you for praying!
