Faith that brings victory!
I would like to share something extraordinary that happened in my life while you were praying.
I have been seeking the Holy Spirit for 3 years and nothing ever happened. Every time I sought Him, a million accusations bombarded my mind saying that I could not receive Him because He was not listening to me. Those voices were so disturbing that I reached the point of no longer believing that the Holy Spirit would come upon my life. When you explained that the Holy Spirit was not poured out by merit, I felt a certain relief. But when you stopped speaking and started praying, the voices quickly came and I allowed everything you said to get lost in a sea of doubts and accusations!
As usual, while you were seeking the Holy Spirit on the radio program, I sat there with my head hung low, with a miniscule amount of hope that I might receive the Holy Spirit. To tell you the truth, I didn’t even feel like praying!
When you began seeking the Holy Spirit, I couldn’t say a word because I was tired of vain repetitions. I kept quiet, listening to what you were saying during the prayer. But, out of nowhere, while you were seeking the Holy Spirit, I left my small room and went to the Temple of Solomon.
That’s right! I don’t know how to explain it, but it seemed so real! I don’t know exactly what happened to me at that moment. This great happiness overcame me, an unspeakable joy, and it was as though I was walking towards the Altar of the Temple of Solomon. It seemed like God was there. It was just me and God in the Temple!
Bishop, from that moment on all those overwhelming voices went silent and, for the first time, I had peace in my conscience! You stopped seeking the Holy Spirit, but I continued. All I could do was glorify my Lord. I was never able to glorify God wholeheartedly, but this time I did! My worship came from deep within my soul!
Bishop, if I had this amazing experience just by imagining myself with God in the Temple of Solomon, just think how it will be when I’m there in person!
Now I understand why you say, “WE ARE GOING TO BE VICTORIOUS!”
