    This is the word of the Lord, be it done unto us according to his words Amen.
  • Irene123
    Ps. 122:1 - The sun. service today was - different; the Lord Jesus took control of it. Pas. had a message ready, but after about 5 min., before he could even begin 'preaching' - Jesus took the service right out of his hands. He just began calling people to the altar - sinners and saints alike, we all went forward, praying, weeping, hands raised in surrender. This went on for an hour. Beautiful.

    Believe for he will pour out His Spirit on to you He does so with me and gives word also amen Jesus i have seen so it be the truth He does pour out His Spirit, amen Jesus
  • Irene123
    No one mentioned v. 1; It sets the 'tone' for the whole chapter. Every time I am on my way to and have arrived at the church - His Spirit just wells up in me; when the service starts with the songs - I just weep, every service. I love Him so. He kept me for 34 yrs. of hell while I was backslid. Some people on here don't believe like I do, but some will know what I am talking about.
