tonight kicked off campmeeting at calvary and the speaker was bishop andrew merrit. tonight he preached on faith extenders and told some pretty amazing stories about faith. mark 11:22 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23 “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. tonight was a simple message with no deep theological truth. that’s what he said…well he anointed people and the power of God came and touched lives. we were picking people up off the floor everywhere. i watched as one of our staff pastors was ready to catch 2 at a time…i caught a few as well. others just fell out. God was rich today.
the most profound thing to me happened in the third service when he spoke on the widow from 2 kings 4 her son died and she laid him on the prophets bed then she went and found the prophet to tell him her son had died and he was a promise and she wanted him back. the prophet came back and laid on the boy and prayed. he came back to life…well things, die in all our lives and he had the whole service write down some things that are dead in their lives whether it was a business, relationships or finances…and the second our pastor laid on those things that died you could feel the anointing in the building! God was truly rich today!
great start to our summer campmeeting!
tomorrow night Tommy Barnett comes to town!
