Disciples of AHKC Levin totally enjoyed catching up with everyone at the New Year celebration in Gisborne, big up’s to you guys!! We all brought home huge pieces of Christ - it was amazing!!
AHKC Levin kick started back 2014 in our new venue and we love it. It is bigger and allows us to worship and preach loud without upsetting other groups nearby (lol). It’s everything we asked for and more. Prayer is dynamite. Our God is never late when it comes to answering prayer.
Together as the Church we continue to combat the spirit of religion and the powers of darkness through preaching the Uncompromised Gospel!!
Jesus is a reality. He lives and continues to draw all men unto himself (John 12:32).
Here are just some of the testimonies coming out of Levin….
Before coming along to Church a young man decided to give up the parties, drugs, and alcohol to pursue Christ. Less than a month ago Holy Ghost led him to a Sunday service with us. He was hit to the heart and since then he made a decision for Jesus. After receiving prayer and prophecy at Bible Study he said “wow I feel really good” and “I’ve never felt like this before”. Last Sunday the enemy had been giving him a hard time but Praise Jesus regardless of that, he still chose to come along to church on time to hear the Word of the Lord. He was so blessed to hear the Truth and have a good time of fellowship with believers. Jesus is alive!!
Disciples met a young mother on the streets who had recently given up her previous life of horrific pain, hurt and many worldly lusts in hopes of becoming a better mum. After coming to Church she testified that “even though this is a little church it feels like there are thousands here”. She said she had been to many churches but never in her life had she encountered God’s Love the way she had that day!! As she began to share her heart she said “I’ve never been so open before I’m not usually like this even with my kids”. Praise God for Jesus!! Through ministry of the Word, prayer, prophecy and fellowship Jesus was able to minister to her at church meetings and bible studies.
A disciple’s husband and almost all her children came down with either vomiting or diarrhoea. After receiving Holy Ghost prayer at church in Jesus name the sickness left and Glory to God the disciple did not get sick at all. Jesus is King!!
A young boy in our church put his hand on a hot oven element. He cried out in pain “Jesus help me, Jesus help me!!” After a few hours under water with Holy Ghost prayer and then worship he went to sleep. When he woke in the morning he said “Mum I’ve got no pain!!” Jesus HEALS!!
Divine appointment on the streets
A disciple met a guy who had just come home to New Zealand after 20 years living it up overseas. He had had enough and his words were ‘I’ve done everything you can think of and it’s wrecked me’!! After hearing the Gospel he said ‘this is what I need to hear!!’ After prayer he received a Bible and testified that he had been thinking about going to church for a long time, but after meeting someone to share the faith on the streets he is sure he wants Jesus. Go Jesus!!
Please join with us in prayer for the souls in Levin. There are so many bound in addictions and dead-end lifestyles and each week more open their hearts to hear the Gospel on the streets. Many have testified that they have never heard the full Gospel before even though this country town is full of churches. Like many places around NZ there are not many churches sharing the Gospel with the lost or discipling believers. While we seek to be faithful Jesus continues to touch lives. THE GOSPEL WINS!
We look forward to seeing more fruit across Levin this year. There are so many lost souls and flocks without shepherds, and this breaks the heart of God!! They are literally waiting for encounters.
God wants to take back the Church. It’s all of our job to do it so COME ON Church what are you waiting for?? What is your life anyway?? For to me to live is CHRIST, and to die is gain!! (Philippians 1 :21). If you’re not already - get into a biblical Church today and get discipled.
Until next time much love and God Bless you all in JESUS MIGHTY NAME!!
