"July 1 to 3?"
Hi John & Doves,
I’ve been lurking here for the past year or so, learning and enjoying the great variety of information that is on this site. But let me get straight to the point - actually I have 2 points to share.
First, as I was going to sleep last night I asked the Lord to give me some kind of dream about the rapture or heaven. I didn’t get a dream, but seconds before I woke up this morning I saw the word “RELENTLESS”. I know what the word means, but thought I should look it up. The words that jumped out at me from the definition are never-ceasing, uncompromising, and unstoppable. I can’t remember ever seeing a word like this when sleeping.
My first thought was that we are to be “relentless” in our practice and pursuit of holiness, righteousness, and prayer. One of my big goals is to finish the race well. Many people start off excited following Jesus, but fall along the way and give up. I want to finish the race stronger in the Lord than when I began.
The 2nd thought about “relentless” that hit me was how relentless Satan is in his pursuit to keep us from finishing the race well. He will stop at nothing to drag us to the lake of fire with him. Thank God for the power in Jesus’s blood!
Now for the 2nd point. I’ve listened to a few of Dr. Owuor’s messages, especially the one about the imminent rapture of the Church during one of his conferences. His next conference is in Hyderabad, India on July 1-3. I’ve never heard of this city before. Tonight when I was opening the mail, I read the first line from the Global Disciples Newsletter for June 2011 and the hairs on my neck stood up. Here’s the first line:
“Pastor Taizennt leads an inner-city church in Hyderabad, India.”
What are the chances that I would read this newsletter days before Dr. Owuor is there? There’s no coincidences - to me that’s a sign. Could this be it? FYI…Hyderabad is about 9-10 hours ahead of the time on the east coast of the US. I’m not setting dates – just extremely hopeful and encouraged by this and wanted to pass it on for your consideration.
Strength & Honor,
Welcome to the Doves, Brian!
