This was our last Sunday service in this building. So many memories… So many people got saved here. Many got married and children were dedicated to the Lord. The Word of God was preached and the worship went up like the evening sacrifice. We have a wonderful past for which we are grateful to God.
But today we are ready to cross over into our Promised Land. We are witnessing history. Pastor R Leigh preached from the Book of Joshua Chapter 1:1-9. He said that in this period of transition, we are commanded by God to be strong and courageous as we now move on. This building was originally a hospital. The anointing here is a ‘hospital anointing’. But the new building was built specifically to be the house of God. The anointing will be higher and purer. We shall have an inheritance over there. The sick shall be healed, the singles will get married, the barren shall be fruitful and the oppressed will be free. That will be our spiritual inheritance. We are confident of good things to come. We shall not be afraid of the challenges ahead. We shall not be confused by what we may see; we shall not draw back in the face of opposition. We shall move from faith to faith, from glory to glory!
Father’s House is a city on a hill, giving light and hope to the nations. God shall use us to glorify Himself and to ignite revival in this land. We have this wonderful promise: wherever we shall go in this life, the Lord is with us! People and circumstances may change, but the Lord Jesus Christ is the same forever. That revelation shall be our anchor. Yes, it is time now to let go of the past, and enter our Promised Land.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” (Josh 1:9)
