LET US KNOW YOUR COMING SO WE'LL HAVE ENOUGH REFRESHMENTS.
A few years ago as I was meditating on Isa 60:1-5 and I decided to memorize it.
As I did the first two verses stood out to me and the H.S. stirred my heart about it.
Isa 60:1 (NKJV) Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.
Isa 60:2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.
Then one night I had a dream that related to these scriptures.
I had such a dream. I saw in the dream a woman laying in the darkness, in what look like mud and dirt and darkness was all around her.
Then a voice called to her to ARISE from the mud & dirt and the darkness.
He said, arise from your darkness, your depression and loneliness, arise from your guilt and shame, arise from condemnations and the lies in which circumstances and the enemy have kept you, don’t look to the lies and the darkness around you look to Me (Jesus).
Then in the dream there was a bright light that shined from the heavens and it settled on the woman like a spot light.
As it shined on her, the light was washing her from the condemnation, guilt, shame, washing her from sin, evil passions, evil speaking, washing her from abusive perversions, physical abuse, washing her from mental abuse, sickness, disease, washing her from depression, oppression and many other evils.
This bright light began to illuminate the woman and it gave her strength and a power that began to lift her up, out of all that filth that she was in.
As she was being lifted up, the darkness around her moved away and she heard Jesus speaking to her, He said, "I love you, I've always loved you, I died for you, receive my love, I paid a dear price for you, so that you could come to me and experience my love. My blood was the payment, the perfect sacrifice, now you are mine, come to me, follow me, give me your life as I have given you mine.
She began to be pulled to the light that shined on her and she began to shine, become radiant and the light was like clothing that covered her and she was pull upward by the power of the light that was on her and that light began to be apart of her, illuminating her.
It was His light, His love, His peace, His joy shining in her and she began to shine inside and out.
As she open her eyes, she was being drawn to Jesus, He is that light, the light of the world, who was coming to her, strengthening her, empowering her with His glorious light and she being full of light, came near to Jesus and He reached out and embraced her and He said, "abide in me and I will abide in you, live in me and I will live in you, I'll never leave you, I'll never forsake you.
Jesus said, Look at me for I am looking at you, my Glory is upon you and in you, it saturates you, my love will cast out all fear because fear is tormenting you. You are my jewel, the pearl of great price.
My love, I have poured out upon you is everlasting, it will not fail you.
Can you feel the warmth of my love. Receive my love, my passion, my fire.
I've burn the Holy Spirit fire in you and He will lead you, He will guide you, learn of me, don't stop learning of me. I love you.
As He said this, she went into Him and He went into her and they became one in Him. There was darkness all around them but she was living in His glorious light.
Col 3:1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.
Col 3:2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
Col 3:3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
Col 3:4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
In the dream I could feel the warmth of the love of Christ, His peace and His joy flooded my very being. His Glory was all around me inside and out.
At the time of the dream that woman was me and Jesus was telling me He was pulling me out of the darkness and filth. He was strengthening me, cleansing me, healing me, delivering me and setting me free to live in Him and to have intimate fellowship with Him.
But as time went on the vision wasn't for me only but for His bride, the church".
Jesus Christ is reviving His church". "He is calling them into Him and to ARISE AND SHINE!"
He is calling His church back to intimacy, a face to face encounter with Him.
Eph 3:16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,
Eph 3:17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
Eph 3:18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—
Eph 3:19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Revival is on His heart and it is in His plan and revival starts with us individually and then corporately. This vision is constantly before me and He burns a fire in me to share it and make the call to your destiny, "intimacy with Jesus Christ.. Where the Glory manifest in us and through us.
Jesus is calling women who are sleeping to awaken. Jesus is calling women who are heavy burdened, abused, forgotten, and abandon, to arise from the darkness into His marvelous light.
God has commanded light to shine, He shine in our heart the knowledge of the glory of God through Jesus Christ
We want to be a gathering of women who encourage, build up and comfort women. I believe Jesus is calling women up to their God given destiny in Him. And we're wanting to unite women to be trail blazers, passionate, on fire for Jesus by sharing with each other their spiritual gifts, talents and ministry gifts.
It was once said, If ever there comes a time when the women of God come together purely and simply for the benefit of all it will be a force that the world has never known.
Women we influence our husbands and our children and those around us and Jesus is calling everyone of us into Him and to ARISE and SHINE in His Glorious Light!
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God. We believe in His substitutionary death for all men, His resurrection, and His eventual return to judge the world.
We believe all men are born with a sinful nature and that the work of the Cross was to redeem man from the power of sin. We believe that this salvation is available to all who will receive it.
We believe in the ordinance of water baptism by immersion in obedience to the Word of God. All those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior should be baptized in water as a public profession of their faith in Christ and to experience what the Bible calls the "circumcision of the Spirit."
We believe in the existence of the Holy Spirit as the third person of the Trinity and in His interaction with man. We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as manifested by the fruit and the gifts of the Spirit.
The Sacred Scripture
We believe in the scripture as the inspired Word of God and that it is the complete revelation of God's will for mankind. We believe in the absolute authority of the scripture to govern the affairs of men.
We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit to the Church body through the anointing of oil by the ministers and the laying on of hands.
Commitment to Israel
We believe in the promise of Genesis 12:3 regarding the Jewish people and the nation of Israel. We believe that this is an eternal covenant between God and the seed of Abraham to which God is faithful.
We believe in the Church as the eternal and universal Body of Christ consisting of all those who have accepted the work of the atonement. We believe in the need for a local assembly of believers for the purpose of evangelism and edification.
We believe that every man is the steward of his life and resources which ultimately belong to God. We believe that tithing is a measure of obedience to the scriptural principles of stewardship.
Prayer and Praise
We believe in the worship of the Lord through singing, clapping, and the lifting of hands. We believe in the authority of the believer to ask freely of the Lord for your needs.
Priesthood of the Believer
We believe that every believer has a unique relationship to the Lord. As His children, every Christian has immediate access to the throne of Grace and the ability to manifest the power of the Lord Jesus Christ in ministry.
Your Generosity Makes a Difference
Your generosity and financial support changes lives. It’s what enables us to carry out the vision of WODH, as we fulfill Jesus’ command to win souls and make disciples. We want to thank you for your prayerful support, as we continue to trust God’s promise that He, “…is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation] (2 Corinthians 9:8, AMP)
