TEXT: ACTS 8:9-13
(9) But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:
(10) To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God.
(11) And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.
(12) But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.
(13) Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.
KEY VERSE: MATTHEW 24:24
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
In our conferences, God has always promised us great things. You might be wondering, “Where is the promise? I have not seen it.” That is because you don’t understand how God moves in the assembly of the righteous. It is you that have not seen, but great things are already happening. To you, things can only be happening when people start falling over themselves and they have to be carried out.
People who understand how God works bear witness that great change of life takes place; great purification of heart is done; great power and anointing is poured down; and physical healing and deliverance from satan manifest in a great way. Right in the course of the meetings, the future of many is changed. Spectacular testimonies after the conferences confirm this.
If you had gone to places where people fall down frequently, where they shout and raise up clutches, and perform all forms of drama for fake miracles, you would think that something great was happening there. God is interested in saving souls and cleansing them for eternal life. The transformation of the heart which is done in holiness, truth and righteousness is of more value to God, but man is interested in carnality, fake testimonies and lying wonders.
But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God.And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.
If you are in a congregation like HOREMOW where lives are being transformed, where we are dealing with God in purity of heart, where attention is paid to His Word and genuine reconciliation is taking place between man and God with God bearing witness, then great things are happening. This is incomparable to polluted assemblies of millions of people with prophets of Baal, congregations of Jezebel and colonies of witches and wizards, but God is notably absent.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Don’t be fooled by the lying wonders of fake pastors.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Satan you are a liar, a terrible liar, in the name of Jesus….
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Nehemiah 1-3; Acts 2:1-13
