I have been pondering on what God’s Kingdom looks like here on earth, specifically when 100% of the people are healed. It all began when I was preparing for our Revival Experiment; this time it was to be a Miracle Service.
As I was reading the Word, I was thinking about the people who were in need of healing, including myself. In my mind, I would focus on one person and then picture what it would be like if they were healed 100%.
With each person, I could see their mind, their body, their organs, their blood — every area being healed.
Before the Miracle Service began one of my leaders said something is happening in the front of the worship center by the drums. Quite sure it was something spiritual, but unsure of exactly what that was, we moved into worship.
During worship, there was like a swirling wind in that area and one of the leaders also commented on seeing large angel’s wings wafting in our presence.
I shared what I was going after — 100%! We worship, we prayed and released healing — but not 100% of our people were healed.
Once the worship and ministry were complete, I closed the meeting and the worship team began to leave the stage. Suddenly, we realized God wasn’t quite finished!
Immediately we saw that in front of the drums was a pool of His Presence with a gentle wind. There was something splashy and breezy happening. As one of the members in the worship team stepped off the stage he encountered a powerful presence of the Holy Spirit. At first doubling over, and eventually tipping over to lay on the floor. For several minutes God transported him around the world in the Spirit. When he got up he told of all the countries God showed him. He marveled that it was as if he was actually there.
For the next hour or so, the Holy Spirit moved in continual waves over us as He ministered to each one of us. Some were overcome with laughter others were motionless in awe. Another walked up into the circle and it was as if she wilted sinking to the floor.
And the heat! There was such heat that came from us making us sweaty even between our fingers and toes! And those were only the things we could recognize – only God knows the fullness of His work.
The next day, one of our leaders sent me a message about the 100% healing.
I was thinking about the 100% healing. (I have seen it happen a few times. Once in a tent meeting in Nevada and everyone was saved, everyone was healed and everyone filled with the Holy Spirit. A woman with atrophied legs from being in a wheelchair for so long got up and walked and we almost had to resurrect her husband from the dead! Muscle grew back on her legs as 100 people watched). I was talking to Jesus this morning and said, “My Friend Cindy wants to see that.” This is what I heard.
It is about the atmosphere. When the atmosphere is thick in oil,
everyone will be touched by it. Last night we got a drop of the new oil.
The atmosphere certainly changed that night, and as we responded to the Holy Spirit’s invitation there was unity in our curiosity.
We weren’t trying to figure it out. We were just wanting to receive all that Jesus had for us. Though it wasn’t what we had planned for the night, it is what He had planned.
Though I do not have a full understanding of what took place that night, there are a couple of takeaways I want to share with you.
1) Pursuing 100%
We must continue to pursue all that Jesus has for us — 100% of it! He has so much more than we know available for us. The only way to find out is through pursuing Him.
I know I had a pursuit in mind — 100% healing. Although the 100% did not occur, it does not dissuade me in the least. In fact, it is just the opposite. It makes me hungry for all Christ has promised us.
Ephesian 3:20 states:
Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us. (AMP)
I want to focus on the last few words in this verse — according to His power that is at work within us. The power of Christ lives in us. We are offered a partnership by Him to join Him in accomplishing His purposes for the Kingdom and for our lives. We are invited to ask and to dream beyond ourselves so His power can be released through us.
2) Changing the Atmosphere
When I am speaking of atmosphere I am talking about when you have been faithful and disciplined in meeting with God in a certain place time after time. Being sure to keep the time sacred and place undefiled there begins a building up of presence and you start having breakthroughs that build on each other and the atmosphere begins to change. His Presence lingers from time to time and the anointing flows in a different manner than you were accustomed.
Let me share with you what I have learned over the years.
We planted The Gathering in 2012, with a theme from John 4:23.
But a time is coming and is already here when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit [from the heart, the inner self] and in truth; for the Father seeks such people to be His worshipers. (AMP)
From this, our call was to connect the hearts of all who came to the heart of God connecting them to their identity and purpose. We have done this by making room for what God wants to do, even if we do not understand fully what that is.
At every gathering, our focus is on worshiping God, preaching the Word, sharing testimonies of what He has done, and releasing the power that is within us to heal and encourage. Without a specified timing, the atmosphere will change with the Presence of God. We do not look to change the atmosphere – God changes it with His Presence – we look to glorify God.
Other key factors include inviting Him and welcoming Him, identifying what God is doing, and making room for Him to MOVE.
Just like at the Miracle Service, we had planned and prayed and God did great things. But He had more — so we stepped aside and let Him pour out, and we jumped in!
3) Unity in Our Curiosity
I grew up in a neighborhood where all the kids would come together to play. As kids, we would experiment and try new things. Someone one would come up with a new way to do a wheelie on a bike or a figure 8 in our skates, and the rest of us would all try until we got it. We were unified in our goal of accomplishing our new thing!
This willingness to try new things with others is what will bring us toward the 100% Jesus has for us. We have to become like children with each other — encouraging others to step into God’s move, speaking out what they are sensing and allowing God to show us new things.
John 15:16 All things that the Father has are Mine. Because of this I said that He [the Spirit] will take from what is Mine and will reveal it to you. (AMP)
God is inviting you to join in the pursuit. He is here now to reveal all things to us — 100%!
I would love to hear from you.
