THE SECRET OF POWER

“And you are witnesses of these things. Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high” (Lk 24:48, 49)
No preacher can preach effectively without the unction, the anointing of the Holy Spirit resting on him like a mantle. A true preacher needs this Baptism of fire, gripping his soul, burning his heart and pouring eternal life thru his words.
Listen to the great man of God, E. M Bounds:
“Unction is simply putting God in His own word and on His own preacher. Unction is that which distinguishes and separates preaching from all mere human addresses. It is the divine in preaching. This unction comes to the preacher not in the study but in the closet. It is having distillation and answer to prayer. It is the sweetest exhalation of the Holy Spirit. It impregnates, suffuses, softens, percolates, cuts and soothes. It carries the word like dynamite, like salt, like sugar. It makes the word a soother, an accuser, a revealer, a searcher. It makes the hearer a culprit or a saint; makes him weep like a child and live like a giant. Opens his heart and disburses gently yet strongly as spring opens the leaves. This unction is not the gift of genius. It is not found in the halls of learning, no eloquence can woe it, no industry can win it; no religious hands can confer it. It is the gift of God, the signet sent to His own messengers. It is having His own knighthood given to the chosen, true and brave one who has sought this anointed honor through many an hour, tearful wrestling in prayer. It takes a divine endowment to break the chains of sin, to win estrange and depraved hearts to God, to repair the breaches and restore the church to her old ways of purity and power. Nothing but this holy unction can do this.”
(E. M. Bounds: 1835-1913)

O friends, get alone with God and shut yourself up with the Ancient of Days until you are endued with power from on high. It may take a week; it may take months but lay hold of God until He imparts his Holy Spirit upon you in a baptism of fire. Then you shall see the transformation in your preaching and in the hearts of your hearers! Souls shall be saved, all for the glory of God!

Father’s House’ Testimony

Last night we had a special deliverance service. It was non stop from 10 pm to 4 am. The church was full to the brim, more people than a Sunday service. Many came from other churches in need of help, healing and deliverance. The anointing was so strong that there was no ‘accident’. Everything went ahead according to the ‘prayed plan’. It was like ‘Iraq’ war…
Many agents of jezebel came to disrupt and seduce, not ready for deliverance…we spotted them, lay hands on them and they manifested badly, falling on the floor and making noises like swine…
The rest, the humble and the willing were all touched…some became saved in the midst of it all…many were delivered…
We ended with a grateful worship to God, hands lifted up, sweat and tears on all faces…but O, the joy of freedom, of knowing that we pleased the Master who personally lead the army to victory!
(You learn more about God during one minute of anointing of the Holy Spirit manifesting, than during one year of Bible school…)
All glory to God! Our church will never be the same again…
The Prince of Peace seats now enthroned…Jehovah Shalom has crushed and cut off the head of satan under our feet (Rom 16:20)
Thank you for all Spirit lead prayers and intercession from all over the world…we share in the reward!
Jesus is Lord!
