I had an overwhelming sense tonight of how sacred the work is that we’re doing here in Togo. I preached about the blood of Jesus for the forgiveness of sins and thousands responded to the message. Then I talked about the obligation that we, who have been forgiven, have to extend forgiveness to others. I saw how many wept as they prayed a prayer of forgiveness. This is the Gospel that we preach; a Gospel of peace, forgiveness, repentance, restitution and love.
Then I began to pray against the curses in the land; curses that many of the locals are afraid to mention aloud. I called them by their local names and took authority over them in the name of Jesus. Romans 16:20 came flooding into my spirit; “…The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.” Satan’s power was broken tonight; crushed by a God of peace, forgiveness and love.
This morning the Fire Conference came to a climax as the Holy Spirit was poured out on the pastors and church workers. After Rev. Peter van den Berg preached, I stepped up to pray over the people. I had an extraordinary awareness of the presence of God and had to fight back the tears and before I could open my mouth to pray, the Holy Spirit started to fall! Thank God for the Gift of the Holy Spirit!
Tomorrow is the final evening of the campaign here in Lome. Thank you for your continued prayers.
Together in the Harvest,
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
