On the 5th July 2014, Saturday, I attended the Family Blessing meeting at the Jesus Calls Prayer Tower, Midview city, Bishan. The Praise and Worship was awesome, the Presence of God beautiful.
Pastor Mary Tham from the World Revival Fellowship, Singapore, shared the sermon on the Kingdom Culture.
- Power and Authority – Power means Dunamis, strength, might. Authority means Exousia, power to act. Jesus delegated the authority and the Holy Spirit imparts Power.Luke 4:18-19The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
Luke 9:1-6 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. 2 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. 3 And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece. 4 And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart. 5 And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them
Luke10:1 After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Acts 3:6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
Acts 5:12 And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people
Agape – Unconditional Love
1 John 3: Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not
1 John 4:16: And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
Matthew 9:36 : But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd
Pastor Mary shared her personal experience of how she practiced the God given authority, through the power of the Holy Spirit, on the streets of Little India. To her surprise, people received deliverance and healing when she exercised the authority.
She encouraged the audience that God has given each and everyone of His children the authority to heal and deliver people from bondage. We must exercise this authority and establish the Kingdom culture in this world.
The service ended with beautiful Praise and Worship.
The next meeting is the Prophetic Conference by Brother Paul Dhinakaran on the 24th, 25th, 26th July, at the Christ Church, Singapore. I believe the anointing will be awesome. Contact the Jesus Calls Prayer tower in Singapore to register.
