What can you say about today? You should have been here! Visiting Pastor John Hite and family filling in for pastor Herb as Pastor was in New Johnsonville.
Pastor John came with an anointing to teach and minister on “The Laying On Of Hands”. He did! Pastor John, The River thanks you for spending time alone with God to be able to minister to others in such a wonderful, powerful fashion.
No Wednesday night service this week and for the rest of the month. But, in the mean time, “study to show thyself approved”. No church, no person, no government, no organization can give you what you must pursue for yourself. That is why and how it becomes personal! Finding your “secret place”, that place where it is between you and Him and not you and them.Leave a Comment
Powerful, wonderful, amazing, overwhelming are a few words that could describe the service at The River this morning. But, then again, our God is all that and more. So many touched by the power of God this morning. So many hungry for His presence, what joy! Hunger fuels the fire and worship ignites it.Leave a Comment
Expect a great day Sunday and prepare to meet the need that is in your future by learning you authority and why God cannot override YOUR authority. He gave it to you and will not/cannot take it back. Mark 13:34: “For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.” He gave AUTHORITY to his servants and to every man his work. Authority means the right to command obedience, the right to enforce obedience, and the right to act officially. Saints, God cannot intervene in what He has already given us the authority to do. If we are begging God to do something about a situation He cannot intervene or override the authority given to man. He gave us the authority to take command of the situation. You speak to the mountain, you tell satin to flee. If you are waiting for God to move perhaps it you that need to move you mouth. “Death and life is in the power of the tongue”. Speak death to that cancer, speak death to depression, SPEAK!Leave a Comment
Starts at 7:00. Continuing on the Holy Spirit Baptism. Pastor said Sunday, “The best counselor in the world is right up front”. On any Sunday when the invitation is given is the time to come and receive what God has in store for you, it will be what you need most at the time. Be faithful and He will be faithful. What He has done for one He will do for another, He is NO respecter of persons. However, YOU must be the one to act to recieve! What moves the Spirit of God, YOU, when you make a move.Leave a Comment
Could you be missing out on the most wonderful part of life? “And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die?”
You will only get what you go after. Just like the blind Bartimaeus. “Son of David, have pity on me!” Many people told the man to stop, but he shouted even louder, “Son of David, have pity on me!” Bartimaeus did not listen when told to hush. Instead of shut up, he got up and called out JESUS! Under the anointing you need to get up, come up and begin to grow up in Him. Perhaps you have been told, God don’t do that, it don’t work that way, that all ended with the disciples, we don’t need that, we don’t believe that, healing is not for today, tongues are of the devil and on and on. Well, you can listen to that or find out for yourself! It will most likely not happen sitting in your seat.
Another wonderful service at The River today. Several touched by the Holy Spirit. Several visitors came but one in particular, that had never experienced such, loved it. Came in with an open mind left wanting more. Said there was such a peace in the place, people that came and welcomed her seemed genuine without some hidden agenda. Just loved on her, great people. Also, so blessed to have a great gift at The River, wonderful musicians and singers.Leave a Comment
Starts at 7:00. Continuing on the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.
Another wonderful, amazing service as people fell under the power of God today, fell as though dead. So many try to understand, claim it is not of God, it is phony or fake. Only way to make a statement like that is because it has not happened to you. When these manifestations/visitations occur, as that have been lately. It will bring revelation of Jesus! Impartations of The Fathers heart. It will cause you to feel love so deep as never before, joy unspeakable, grief over the lost and many other revelations of God The Father, God The Son and God The Holy Spirit. Through these experiences we are filled with the knowledge of the attributes of God. He fills us this way to make us more like HIM. We are to be like Him. It is though this means that He brings us to our knees, allows us to see ourselves, how incomplete we really are without Him. You can know it is from above because it draws you toward LOVE! Love of God and others even our enemies.
We read scriptures where people fell backwards or down, some as though dead. I can tell you it was lights out suddenly for several today. They will be better tomorrow for the experience.
Seeing people put themselves forward to receive. “You have not because you ask not”. James 4:2-3 says 2 You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. 3 When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
What He did for one He will do for another. ASK with an expectation and you will receive. Ask with pure motives. A new heart!
And Janet Mooney says:
3 weeks now, there has been a powerful move of God at The River At Portland. While worshipping today I felt excitement, awe, and expectancy all at the same time. But then the strangest thing happened to me. (Time to testify).
While Pastor was preaching and teaching, I had a peace, like a heavy blanket, come over me. Then a fiery hot type heat come over My stomach area and upper left part of my back.
The entire time I could hardly keep my eyes open. All I could do was keep whispering, Thank You, Jesus! Thank You. I have given Him control of my life, and everything in me. I have no idea what He did today, but I left with a quiet and deep peace.
Others were healed and ministered to what ever their need was.
Always know that when you also have a need, just cry out to Jesus and find true Believers and then Believe!! He loves us so very much!
