Why the Church Must Assemble in the Power of the Spirit

Many will not understand this word. Only Spirit-taught saints will truly grasp it. An entire book could be written on this theme.

I woke up with this on my heart a couple of days ago, which is happening frequently to me, and I began writing it down. This theme is so critical in this hour that it will take a series of videos or another book to get it out.

When you receive a true revelation from the Spirit of truth, it sticks to you and stays with you, and it burns in your heart for days and weeks, because it is so real to you. The revelation is this:

The church of the Lord Jesus Christ is to be a mighty, mighty church on the earth that shakes the powers of hell in any city or region. The world and government authorities are to fear and respect her greatly, and even be afraid to oppose her.

Behold Their Threatenings

There is a government official in our town of Windham, New Hampshire, who is harassing and troubling the church we've been attending recently (The Crossing Life Church). Windham has been on national news recently because we are rising up and challenging the voter fraud in our state. The leaders made a decision to purchase a large tent for our property to facilitate the harvest of souls that are coming in. People are getting saved and having encounters with the Lord. This town official is being unreasonable, unfair and restrictive in refusing to authorize meetings in our tent.

"And pray that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men, for not all men have faith" (2 Thess. 3:2)

When the overseer of this church told me the details of all this, I was fuming with righteous indignation. I mentioned to him that the church has great authority when it comes to matters like this.

Do you realize that the apostle Paul commanded a sorcerer to be struck blind when he attempted to hinder a hungry soul from receiving the gospel (Acts 13:6-12)?

Do you realize that buildings shook, and signs and wonders were released, and great boldness granted when the early church prayed corporately because they were being threatened by local religious authorities (Acts 4:29-31)?

When anyone comes against the gospel in any way and hinders the harvest, it is such a serious matter with God, and the church should exercise great authority. We are living in a day now in America where the church is being opposed, controlled and hindered as never before. We must arise in the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ and deal with this darkness and tyranny.

The Spirit of God witnessed to me very strongly about His original design and purpose for His church in this last hour, and the Lord's great desire for this level of authority to be restored again to His corporate body. When I saw this light from the Word of God, I wanted to run around the house at 5:00 in the morning (my prayer time), because I was so excited!

This revelation is burning in me that I will have to unveil the rest of it via video later on today or tomorrow. Don't worry, if you don't catch these videos live, they will be on our YouTube channel. I am excited about this word and can't wait to share and expound further on it. Those who love the Word and are Spirit-taught will explode. Your hearts will burn.

Heartburn

Fresh revelation like this has been so frequent that I'm producing videos and putting them on a new playlist on our Holy Fire Ministries YouTube channel. The playlist is called Heartburn based on Luke 24:32:

"They said to each other, 'Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked to us on the way and while He opened the Scriptures to us?'"

The local body needs to have a revelation of how heaven moves on behalf of the unified church who exercises its authority in these kingdom matters.

Here's what the Holy Ghost is saying: The church must learn to assemble in the power of the Holy Spirit.

"''Now, Lord, look on their threats and grant that Your servants may speak Your word with great boldness, by stretching out Your hand to heal and that signs and wonders may be performed in the name of Your holy Son Jesus.' When they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God with boldness" (Acts 4:29-31).

Please share this and let the fire spread! More to come.
