Just a quick update on the run: yesterday I was preaching in Dusseldorf. Today I am in Tostdet, a little town on the outskirts of Hamburg. Tomorrow I will preach here again, before traveling on to Singapore.
It’s Pentecost Sunday today and so the theme of the services was right up my alley. I must say that the burden of the Lord came over me this morning so strongly as I got up to preach. I was about 1/3 through my message when the Holy Spirit just took over and I can hardly remember anything that was said or done for the rest of the service. All I know is the fire fell!
I’ve just returned from the evening service where the Lord spoke so clearly and imparted an Acts 4:31 spirit of boldness…an essential component of the full Pentecostal experience. The power has not been given so we can have great church services, but according to Jesus, that we might be witnesses unto Him (Acts 1:8). I can’t wait to see what the Holy Ghost does tomorrow morning!
We celebrated Pentecost today, but it was no “memorial service”. The Holy Spirit is not dead…He is alive and well. Pentecost is not history…it’s news!
