Last Wednesday at MOA was awesome! During our worship at the clinic we sang 'There is power in the name of Jesus. To break every chain. To break every chain. To break every chain.' [Break Every Chain by Will Reagan & United Pursuit] The Holy Spirit prompted me to direct every Messenger to share 'the name of Jesus' in every conversation. As I entered the MOA Transit Center, my Spirit was grieved by pervasive mental illness. Twenty to twenty-five percent of homeless individuals suffer from severe mental illness compared with six percent general incidence. I encountered an elderly homeless woman, clearly mentally distraught. I introduced myself but she wished to remain anonymous due to her severe paranoia. I prayed to behold my sister through God's eyes then declared 'Jesus Christ loves you and sent me to heal you.' BOOM! The Holy Spirit reigned down upon us! This anonymous, mentally distraught woman became instantly lucid. Delores shared her life then requested prayer. 'There is power in the name of Jesus. To break every chain. To break every chain. To break every chain.'
Acts 4:8-12 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: 'Rulers and elders of the people! If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a man who was lame and are being asked how he was healed, then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. Jesus is 'the stone you builders rejected, which has become the cornerstone.' Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.'
Becca shared 'I was able to chat with was Gina who was also a believer but had some struggles going on in her home life. When I asked if she knew Jesus, she said yes and talked about sharing her testimony in the past through a Bible study. I asked if she would share it with me. Gina did share and opened up about God saving her from mental illness and a terrible car accident. We prayed for healing in her body and she said she would have to walk around a bit more to see if there was a difference. She then told me it was hard in her neighborhood because she lives near a high population of Muslims. When I nodded and said 'Jesus died for them too' she teared up and said she had never heard anyone say that before but it is true. Leaving the conversation she said 'I know God has plans for me, I am just not sure what. And people have told me it doesn't need to be something earth shattering.' I was able to encourage her and tell her if she shares Jesus with just one person that is earth shattering! It was an awesome night serving an awesome God!'
Last Friday at the Minneapolis Jail was awesome! We encountered Paul, a twenty-four year old gentleman without a family. He divulged 'My mother abandoned me at birth. My father was forever in prison. My Auntie raised me but never loved me.' Paul was clearly emotionally delayed – a little boy who yearned to be loved by daddy. But Paul sought gangs, drugs and 'babes' to fill the void. I shared the full Gospel Message, emphasizing our Abba Daddy's love. Paul exclaimed 'My brother Mathew surrendered to Jesus Christ in prison. Now he is free and married and has a baby girl named Ruby.' I shared the Jesus Christ / Lift Raft analogy then declared 'Paul, your brother accepted Jesus' hand to be saved but you are still drowning in the ocean of your sin!' BOOM! The Holy Spirit exploded upon us! Paul shrieked and dropped to the ground. We laid hands upon our brother as he cried out to Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior. And Daddy. In Christ, Jason.
Rom 8:14-17 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, 'Abba, Father.' The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs – heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
Our children are dying. I need your help to share Christ with the lost.
Dt 24:16 Parents are not to be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their parents; each will die for their own sin.
