God @ Ramsey

Ramsey Campmeeting was like a breath of fresh air. To experience the presence of God in the "old-fashioned" way. The presence of God that cancels the preaching because people are running and shouting in the aisles, hugging one another, coming to a relationship with Christ, and giving testimony after testimony to the witness of the holy spirit, and the power of God.

The spirit of God met with His people under the anointed ministries of Rev. Terry Walker and Dr. Robert England.

Concerning revival, it was said of the late Charles Spurgeon that, if he had to do his ministry over again he would focus more on revival than evangelism, for if the church is revived then evangelism will happen. What a powerful thought! I was amazed to hear this sermon topic on the first night that I was at this camp meeting, as this is the very issue that God has been speaking to me about! May this be our prayer, that God would send revival to our hearts, and churches, that souls may be saved!

Another interesting sermon was that on, Fresh Oil, taken from Psalm 92:10, "But my horn shalt thou exalt like [the horn of] an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil." O, that our hearts and souls would receive a fresh anointing! When a fresh anointing occurs in our lives it is evidenced by Spiritual Power, Spiritual Profit, and Spiritual Refreshment.

During this brief week I was also introduced to the ministry of Latin American Ministries, which is a mission/outreach to the Guatemalan people. This is an awesome ministry, with a great presentation that lets you experience the heart behind the mission. We are looking forward to partner with this ministry in whatever way God allows (more on this, to come).

Our short vacation was refreshing physically, and reviving spiritually.

This week Kristina and I are headed to Corydon, IN. We will be visiting family and friends, as well as, spending time at Ramsey Campmeeting. We are looking forward to a time of spiritual renewal and revival.

We will return early next week, at that time you can expect a blog report of the moves of God, that we will have experienced.

Power Shift

I came across this scripture in my devotional time, and was struck by it.

Now Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laid his hands on him; so the children of Israel heeded him, and did as the LORD had commanded Moses. -Deut 34:9

Many churches are in debate over whether or not "laying on of hands" is a Biblical mandate or not. However, there are a couple of things we can take away from this passage of scripture. One, is that the laying on of hands is Biblical. The other is a secret for experiencing the power of God on our lives.

But since then there has not arisen in Israel a prophet like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face... -Deut 34:10

By following the example of Moses and Joshua we see that at times in our spiritual lives it is essential that we spend time in prayer (with laying on of hands) with those who have attained to a closer walk with Christ than perhaps our own. We see here a transfer of blessing/power.

What are your thoughts on this particular passage?
