Matthew 16:18 (KJV) 18And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
The Church of the living God is advancing in these last days. While some report the decline and demise of traditional Christianity, believers around the world are absolutely pumped about the rise and revival of the church.
Every local congregation should acknowledge that the forces of spiritual wickedness and the agenda of the darkness of this world system cannot stop the unrelenting march of the church.
Here are some individual testimonies that bring me great joy about the progress of the church:
Jennifer wrote: I am writing to give you some news about what's going on with me. Since last Wednesday night, when I told you that I prayed that I might be a soul winner, in 2 days I have taught 3 Bible studies and everyone I taught wants to come to church with me.
God just opened these doors so easily for me and these people are just so hungry for more of the Lord. They are discovering things in the Bible as I teach that they never knew before. I am just really excited to see how these doors just opened so easily and I wanted to share this news with you.
Tony and Tina sent this note: It is really amazing to see what God is doing. You told us that God would set up opportunities for us and it is unreal what is happening. Tony now has 5 people that want to be baptized in Jesus Name. Recently we have connected with several people that have been away from church for a long time and now they all want to come back to church as soon as possible. Tony helped a lady who was having car trouble the other day and now we believe she is coming to church soon also! Some of our friends who have not been to church that much, are now helping us invite others to church. WOW!
WOW is right. HERE COMES THE CHURCH! There is a spiritual fire that is spreading forth from the Church. It is stirring up an unprecedented hunger for God in the hearts of sincere people that want more of Jesus Christ. This is the GREATEST HOUR for the Church.
TOMORROW WOULD BE A GREAT DAY TO BE IN CHURCH!
Joel 2:28 - 29 (KJV) 28And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
