Matthew 10:7-8

As you go, preach, saying, "the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.

When Kingdoms Collide

On a recent outreach we went to follow up on a new believer named Keywan, we've been praying for him for a few weeks and wanted to stop by to encourage him. We knocked on his door and he invited us right in. He had some friends over and he introduced us to them and told them what we were about.

As we started to minister to the three of them all of a sudden a tangible intensity came into the room. The more we preached the more intense it got with questions, accusations, curiosity and truth like two Kingdoms colliding.

At one point all three of us were preaching at full volume and intensity to them and they were responding to us at full volume and intensity.

After about twenty minutes we asked if we could pray for them and demonstrate the kingdom. They agreed, and as we prayed one of us got a word for Tyson about having once followed the Lord wholeheartedly until something major happened in his life resulting in him losing faith.

His eyes got wide as he said "oh man that's crazy, something really did happen" turns out he had lost a younger brother years ago and he had been really angry at God.

This word seemed to really get his attention as he continued to share that he knew this was not a coincidence but a divine appointment. We began to really warn them of the eternal consequences of not being right with God. It was like we were pulling them from the fire. We assured them we would be back and that we would be praying faithfully for them.

As we left we were all a bit bewildered and stunned at the intensity of the visit. It felt like we had been conduits for the power of God and it felt awesome!!!
