So Thursday night and all day and night Friday I was at a women’s lock in at Anointed Tabernacle in Beaumont Texas. So many words come to mind when I think of what I experienced for the last day and a half. The most prevalent though, is AWESOME! You’ll find that I use that word a lot lol. I saw women getting the Holy Ghost for the first time, I saw women being baptized in Jesus name, I heard prophecies. I saw an angel! The spirit was really moving in that place and I feel so blessed that I got to experience it all.
On the last night a man came in. I watched as they lifted him from his wheel chair and laid him on the alter. They laid hands on him. They prayed over him. I watched as the spirit overtook him. I watched as he lifted his hands to God. I watched the tears flow down his face as he spoke in tongues, and I rejoiced with him! When they put him back in his chair, I watched as he wheeled a lap around the sanctuary! Seeing the pure joy on his face as he went down in that water and came up a new man was a beautiful sight to behold.
There was so much I didn’t know when I got there. How to pray was one of them. I always felt silly praying; in public and in private. I’m naturally a shy person which plays a part in my finding this difficult. There was a lady there who sat and talked to me for about two hours. She was so helpful and I will forever be grateful that I had the opportunity to speak with her. They handed out packets when we got there. They were filled with all kinds of goodies about praying and fasting. She was kind enough to take some time and answer some questions I’ve had for awhile and have been too embarrassed to ask. I told her things about myself that I had never told anyone else. It was such a cleansing and eye opening experience!
Going forward, I hope to grow in Christ and build on the things that were revealed to me in listening to Sis Warner, and the last prophecy in particular.
Got a King James study bible today! Kind of excited about this. Sometimes (for me at least) reading the KJV bible can be a bit confusing. I haven’t had the opportunity to really get into it yet but I skimmed the beginning. Looks like there’s a lot of historical references and that’ll be fun; reading more about the history and gaining a better understanding of how everyone connects to everyone else.
It’s been almost a year since my initial post. Been kind of busy. I’m hoping to be able to keep up with this now.
So things that are new:
My son is about to finish 1st grade at United Christian Academy, my husband has finished his next to last year in grad school. Also, he’s almost finished with his first year teaching.
Things are going great at church! I attend First United Pentecostal church in Port Arthur, Texas.
What you missed @ FUPC:
Roundup Sunday- we all wore rodeo and western attire. We had a cookout, games, and horse rides!
On the very same day we also celebrated the elders in our church with a supper just for them. I was asked to prepare a couple of desserts; banana pudding and peach cobbler (recipes will be in another post).
Easter- Unfortunately the children were unable to put on a skit, but we were treated to a lovely sermon about the resurrection. HE LIVES!!
Recommitment Sunday. We are going to build a new church!!
It’s Saturday so tonight will be our weekly youth led service. We have awesome youth! They are filled with the holy spirit and are not afraid to show it!
Our service just ended a little while ago. As usual the holy spirit moved through the congregation touching souls left and right! It was awesome to experience! One of our pastors sons Bro Jonathan McCoy spoke about not being afraid to step out and talk about God; winning souls.
I’d like to end this post asking if anyone reading this has a prayer request. Leave it in the comments and I’ll make sure to add you to my personal prayer list. Have a blessed night!
