Bless The Lord oh my Soul and all that is within me bless his Holy Name.
Jesus died on the cross and arose from the grave. He appeared to his disciples over a period of forty days. He ate with them and talked with them. How comforting it would have been for them to spend time with Jesus and hear him explain what happened.
“On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.””
Acts 1:4-5, 8 NIV
The Holy Sprit fell on the disciples with tongues of fire in the Upper Room. They received power from the Holy Spirit to go out and boldly tell others that Jesus was their Saviour sent from God. The disciples were uneducated men, yet when they received the Holy Spirit they spoke with clarity and authority without fear about Jesus.
The gospel is continuing to reach the ends of the earth. I am in Slovakia at the moment in the High Tatras. One could call it an end of the earth. I am far away from home. The Holy Spirit has given me power to be a witness for what Jesus has done in my life. I am telling men, women and children about my family and healing from Cancer.
It was by the power of the Holy Spirit that I carried and reared fourteen children and am alive to tell the tale.
When I was young I had rheumatic fever which left me with a weak heart. The doctors advised that I should only have one child. I got married and had two children. I was home looking after my family. When my two children started school I was keen to have another child. After some time passed I prayed and asked God for a child. I said I will give my life to you if you give me another child. I became pregnant and continued to have children. God gave me the strength. God must have healed my heart!
When I developed bowel cancer and it had advanced to stage four, I was very weak and giving up on life. Others prayed to God for me to be healed. As time passed I received power from the Holy Spirit to fight the sickness and overcome.
The same Holy Spirt will give me strength tonight to be a witness at the end of the earth that Jesus has arose from the dead, has forgiven sin, healed sickness, and brought deliverance. I will be destroying some works of the devil.
Bless The Lord all my Soul.
