Salvation, Miracles and House Churches…OH MY!
We conducted six weeks of Prayer and Fasting leading up to our Holy Ghost Rally. During this time we took Tuesdays and Thursdays of each week and did a Prayer Drive in each territory. I already had our town divided up into four territories, with me and three other ministers over each one. Every Tuesday and Thursday we had everyone in RBD meet at the church at 6 pm. We would alternate praying over each territory on these days. I would hand each ‘team of 2’ a map of that territory that we were focusing on that night, and assign them a particular area within that territory to pray over. Once we had the entire territory assigned we would then have focused group prayer asking God to cover us and our families and commission angels to go before us. We then would get in our vehicles and drive through our assigned neighborhoods of that territory and pray over the houses, binding and loosing spirits as we had been taught. We were preparing our territory for Revival!
This culminated with our Holy Ghost rally with Bro. Jared Staten on Sunday, March 29th. We put up banners in town, flyers in businesses and we handed out almost 1000 church business cards that we had made announcing our Miracle and Holy Ghost Crusade on the back. We had 42 visitors attend this Sunday service. (I had it at 2 pm so folks could go to their service and then come to ours. It worked!) Our regular attendance average has been 75, but we had 140 attend this crusade service! At last count, there were 15 confirmed miracles of healing, six received the Holy Ghost and five were baptized during our HG rally, with two more to baptize on Easter Sunday! So far, we have had 16 receive the Holy Ghost and 13 water baptisms since we initiated Evangelism in early February!
The following Tuesday, one of our group leaders was outside his home working around the house. His neighbor approached him and started a conversation. She asked “You go to church don’t you?” The leader responded in the affirmative. They further questioned “It is a Spirit filled church, right?” Again, the leader responded “Yes.” The neighbor then began to share a very serious need that they were facing, and asked if this man would mind putting them on a prayer list. The leader responded that he would love to, but then asked if it would be alright if they prayed right then. The neighbor eagerly agreed. Within seconds of beginning to pray, the Spirit fell on her, and she began speaking in tongues as the Spirit filled her! Be instant in season!
The best part is that I met with my Area Coordinators Monday night and we have 24 NEW people that have been assigned to them to follow up and start house churches in the next two weeks! I have a few more visitor cards to go through and I am hoping to have some more contacts ready to assign by the end of this week. To God be the glory!
RBDNA Note: As of this writing, New Life is in their second week of House Church meetings. In their five established house churches, they are discipling about 40 new converts! Anticipation and expectation are running high as they continue to take spiritual dominion in their territory!
The image below is the Training Center’s Territory Map. The red building in the center represents the Main Church. The smaller green building are representative of their newly launched House Churches. The orange flags represent the homes of the families in the church. We look forward to many more buildings and flags being added to this map showing the shift of Spiritual Dominion!
