Disciples of Levin continue to faithfully serve Jesus & others, preaching the uncompromised Gospel to the lost and compromised, forsaking our own ways learning and growing in God’s ways. We continue to strive to live a life pleasing unto God as best as we can being fruitful in every good work. (Colossians 1:10)
It’s been AWESOME watching God’s kingdom advance here in little old Levin!!
Levin door to door evangelism
This month we started door to door evangelism Praise God as a result we have had many open doors, slammed doors and every opportunity to pour out and to give out as we have freely received.
Several people have come in through the doors of our church hearing the Gospel receiving prayer, prophecy and healings, yet have failed to make decisions for Christ and as a result have returned to sin and the love of the world. Levin is a small town yet there are many different false Gospels being preached. Hence the reason why Christians ought to take the Gospel seriously and obey the commandment Jesus left us, which is to preach the Gospel to every creature. (Mark 16:15)
Ambassadors of Christ are set for the defence of the Gospel at all times regardless of what they see. Thank you Jesus that the Gospel force continue to be conduit’s for the Holy Ghost!!
Two disciples of AHKC Manurewa going HARD for JESUS!!
A disciple of Manurewa had a work training programme set here in Levin, which meant that we had an extra soldier for 6 whole weeks. She was a blessing to all of us, her growth in the Lord has flourished, and as she testified ‘she has decreased as Christ has increased’. She also testified of God’s financial provision. Before leaving Auckland the little money she had she trusted God with and he came through with the rest. In doing so $1830 was accredited to her account as her fees worked out to be less than she expected. Jehovah Jireh is our provider!!
She shared her mighty testimony and the keys God has given her through discipleship. We were refreshed by the living waters pouring out of her heart - another likeminded servant for Christ.
Another disciple of Manurewa was with us this past week, he’s also on fire and stronger than ever!! During his stay here he testified of being greatly strengthened as were we!!
The Word of the Lord came through the brother on Sunday, it was a sobering message & a reminder to all of us to continue to count the costs, to ask ourselves those sobering questions – though none go with me yet WILL I still follow Jesus?? We should never stop examining ourselves until He who hath begun a good work in us will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. (Philippians 1:6)
It was really encouraging hearing about all the amazing things God is doing in South Auckland. Thank God for born again committed disciples who are laying down their lives for Christ.
Four women who are mighty disciples of God arrived from Gisborne AHKC on the Friday. These ladies preached hard, prayed hard, and poured out their hearts and love for Jesus. It was a privilege and a pleasure to have them minister to us here in Levin. What a beautiful thing to see the love of Christ manifest in others, this is truly what it’s all about Gods kingdom increasing in others!!
Our weekend together was off the hook!! Four days of on fire fellowship, praise, worship, fun, times of refreshing, times of growth and being challenged, awesome food, hard out laughs, some tears and much more.
On arrival all four ladies were totally blessed by being able to open air preach the Gospel on the streets of Levin!! All of them tore it up in the Holy Ghost!!
One of Friday night’s most memorable moments was when one of the Gisborne disciples began to open air passionately declaring what Jesus has done in her life.
When all of a sudden a so called “pastor”, (rather, an attacker of the Word), from a local church which apparently train’ up disciples, yells out “who are you preaching to? There’s no one here” she replied with a huge smile on her face “I don’t know anyone who will listen” and he said “you should go and preach to people in pubs, people who need the Gospel there’s no one here.”
This was one of those “what the?” moments, what kind of a pastor bag’s out a Christian who is proclaiming truth, truth that’s set her free? My dear friends, we as Christians know that pastors would never even dream of saying that to a Christian that was at least having a GO!! Only a carnal minded person would respond that way, carnal thinking equals babes in Christ!! (1 Corinthians 3:1)
In every meeting every disciple testified of being greatly encouraged, convicted, and challenged in getter over themselves, loving the one in front of them and seeing God’s bigger picture.
God’s heart and vision is the heart of this ministry which is to make disciples of all nations!! (Matthew 28:19) And to lay down our lives for others there is no greater Love!! (John 15:13)
Decisions for discipleship
Two young men believe that God has called them to discipleship they are currently undergoing our foundations course and Love it as they keep coming back for Jesus!!
It’s been awesome in the past month seeing them attend most of our church services, Bible studies, prayer meeting’ and street evangelisms. It’s been wonderful to see good fruit in them as a result of sitting under the Word of God. God annihilates man’s pride, ideas, opinions, and thoughts. Oftentimes God does this through men & woman of God who preach the uncompromised Gospel without fear of man!! The two guys joined us over the Easter weekend and there appeared to be breakthrough in the spirit and real commitment to follow Christ. Praise God for young men who are willing to pursue Jesus no matter what the cost.
“I had a bad cut on my finger I was told that it would take 6 months to recover. I chose to get in faith and pray for a full recovery. My finger got healed and was back to normal within 2months!! Jesus heals!!”
“We met a lady while evangelising door to door and she came to church with her mum who went up the front for prayer for healing. On their way home she testified her legs and arms were feeling much better!!”
A disciple prayed over a young man who has had pain in his ankles and joints for some time. The next morning he testified that his ankles were strengthened!! Praise Jesus!!
A testimony of training up our children
Since being a disciple in a biblical church I have been amazed at the supernatural growth of my children. They are rapidly growing in boldness, confidence, and obedience to the Word. They are really stepping out in Jesus!! At times they have even been putting me to shame!! As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth!! God is training up our children!!
On streets we got to witness to two young boys who heard the Gospel message, they prayed prayers of decision for Jesus and we were able to bless and minister to them. We were also able to minister to a group of young people. One girl had a sprained ankle and we prayed the Jesus would come heal her.
JESUS IS KING His ways are higher than man’s ways and He is perfect!! April has been an exciting month much growth in the disciples of Levin and in our fellow soldiers all across New Zealand. Thank God for Jesus Who triumphs in us and through us always taking us from Glory to Glory.
The Word of God tells us that where His church is, the gates of hades shall not prevail - that’s the truth!! Instead the trees of righteousness (true Christians) are flourishing and ever increasing spiritually in this land!! Praise Jesus He truly is raising up a mighty army, a peculiar people, a zealous people so He can demonstrate His power, His glory for His names sake!!
Be blessed in Jesus name
