prison into a grocery and material store. A Christian brother later purchased and is operating the site. Isn’t it amazingwhat the gospel can do when people obey and fear the Lord instead of the authorities?
“Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains,and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. Many people shall come and say, “ Come, and let us go up to themountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion shall goforth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations, and rebuke many people; They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, Neither shall they learn war anymore.”
Early Sunday morning, a group of youth was praying andinterceding for almost two hours. This is the secret actionwhen you want to have a revival within a church andchallenge the community. Intercession for the unsavedbrings God’s presence to the hardened human heart andcauses them to surrender all to Christ. On the same day, weministered to the people of Ahuimol. There was also afuneral in the afternoon and weencouraged the family of the deceased with words of life.Monday morning, Dinu and I went to a church namedLa Puerta in Cristo in Tlanempa Comon pastored byAntonio Hernandez Tolentino. We arrived there acouple hours after passing through the mountain.This was a very poor area but people had a great faithin God.
“Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him?”
When we arrived to Pastor Antonio’s house, we felt compelled to pray and intercede for the evening service. We prayed for an hour and I knew in my spirit that the Lord had asurprise for us that night. Even though it was not a regular church service that Monday evening; we were impressed tosee a great multitude of people that could not fit inside thechurch and the service was held outside. The surprise fromthe Lord was His deep presence that touched the hearts of people and lots of them camewith tears in their eyes and confessed their sins out loud without shame. Dinu wasunusually impressed to hear them confess in their language. This is really the work of theHoly Spirit at which people did not consider the public of their shameful sins because of the deeper desire to be right with God. If you confess your sin, he is just and merciful toforgive you.
“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, Heis faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that wehave not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.”
1 John 1:8-10
“My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have anAdvocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 2 And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for thewhole world.”
1 John 2:1-2
“Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Your loving-kindness; according to the multitude of Your tender mercies, blot out mytransgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin isalways before me. Against You, You only, have I sinned, and done this evil in Your sight that You may be found just when You speak, and blameless when You judge. Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me.”
“He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.”
