The disciples of Levin are known in the community as they have lived here for most of their lives. Because of this AHKC Levin/Gospel Force have become very well-known in and around this area, and are often the talk of the town. Go JESUS!!
All disciples here can personally testify of witnessing different manifestations from the forces of darkness. The church has experienced many attacks, mostly from the spirit of religion, sometimes through family and so-called friends. Many people have heard the Gospel and have come in eager, wanting to lock into discipleship, but fail to let go of sin and love of the world.
One of our most interesting events so far was a visitor who was ready to bring a word he claimed he received from the Lord in 1997. He proclaimed himself an Apostle, specifically sent by God to us, and insisted he must deliver the message right away. When given Scripture, the man clearly rejected and demanded he speak with the directors of AHKM (which he never did). After making false accusations, the man was then asked to leave the premises. Praise God for the simplicity of His Word, it is written ye shall know them by their fruit!!
All Glory to Jesus though, Levin Church services, evangelism, and our meetings throughout the week have been fire filled and action packed!! All in demonstration of the great and powerful Holy Ghost!!
Here are some mighty testimonies from the disciples of AHKC Levin:
DECISIONS FOR CHRIST
After hearing the Gospel on the streets in Levin, 3 young ladies decided to give their hearts to the Lord. When the disciples had finished praying over them, they all had smiles on their faces and kept on saying they felt really good.
My daughter was healed of a painful lump the size of a golf ball at prayer meeting. It just disappeared after prayer!
I prayed for an older lady that had pneumonia and after prayer she testified that Jesus had healed her!! Jesus is King!!
After our first church meeting I went down into the kitchen to where I met a lady from another church that I knew. I had prayed for her a couple of weeks before for pain in her arm and ulcers in her stomach. She reported that Jesus had healed her of both!! While we were talking, she also had a sore leg. I asked if I could pray for her, she said yes and so I prayed for her leg and then after praying for her another older lady came into the kitchen holding her hand. The lady that had the ulcers and sore arm started to explain to the woman that I had prayed for her and God had healed her. She then asked the lady if she wanted prayer but before she could finish her sentence the lady had already turned to face me and receive prayer. I then asked her what was wrong with her hand. She replied and said that she had a lump on her hand and it was painful and she did not know how it got there. She was going to the hospital the following week to get it checked. I said to her that I believe in the power of Christ and I believe he can heal you and then I prayed for her and as soon as we started to pray the bump started to go down! I asked her how she was feeling, she said it was still a bit sore so I prayed for it again and we all watched as the bump disappeared! Praise you Jesus!! God is awesome!!
At 2:30pm on the 17 June 2013 our 4th son was born. He was four weeks early and the doctors were worried about almost everything there could be to worry about! Before he came they wanted to inject me with steroids to release the hormones needed to make sure his lungs would be formed properly. We declined these, and Praise Jesus there was nothing wrong with his lungs! They were worried about him being able to regulate his body temperature well enough on his own, how much he would weigh, which actually, a baby under 2.3kg pretty much has to go in the neo-natal ward, our baby weighed 2.57! Jesus is King!! Everything about him was perfect! Weight, lungs, skin, being able to regulate his temperature – everything! Jesus remains faithful! We Praise Jesus for a beautiful, healthy, perfect little man!
8th of July 2013 I started a new job of 15 hours plus more when needed and all fitted around my care for the kids WHOA God is Good! One week after the news of having my hours cut to just 4 hours a week I went to God. It is the most wonderful thing to have almighty God speak into your heart. He provided me with a new job as a waitress. I can testify Gods help in adapting to the role quickly and his strength to do my job fast and well. I praise God for answering my prayer, providing for my needs!
I’d been living in a house for more than 4 months and recently I found out that the whole time since there had been a serious gas leak right outside my back door. When I called my power company about the issue they sent out the emergency team to fix the problem. They were all amazed that nothing horrific had not happened. Clearly it was a miracle.
Numerous times whilst driving on the roads the strong winds and weather have nearly wiped me off the high-way, or into on-coming traffic, and even nearly into a bridge during one of the recent Kapiti earthquake tremors. Other people I know were hurt and scared by the movements but I felt nothing and was kept safe. God is the protector of the weak!! You are Glorious O God!!
MIRACLES & OPEN HEARTS ON THE STREETS
At Bible Study a disciple prophesied that I would meet a guy with a red hat and a caffeine drink in his hand. The following Saturday on streets I met this guy and I got to share the Gospel with him and a short testimony about the awesomeness of our Saviour. He is looking for a church to be a part of.
I was able to share with a young lady about Jesus! She has been living here for 3 years, has no family with her, no job, and no friends. She had never really heard the Gospel message before, only knew a little about a man named Jesus, didn’t really know about sin and had no idea that Hell was real. I was able to pray for her and Jesus touched her heart!!
Another disciple and I were witnessing to a guy at a bus stop and he shared with us that he was of the Muslim faith. We continued to talk to him about Jesus and he started to share with us about his own personal situation. He was heading to the airport to head down south to start a new life. He had just broken up with his partner and was feeling suicidal. We then started to share our own personal testimonies about what God had done in our lives and what he could do with his. We were able to pray for him and Holy Ghost came and touched him. After we were finished praying, his whole countenance had changed from being down-cast from being down-cast to being joyful.
I was out at a park with my family witnessing when a fight broke out between two groups of youth. I was able to break up the fight before the situation got completely out of hand. By the time the Police arrived the fight had ended. Later on that night two other disciples met one of the main guys involved in the fight. He also had four other friends with him. The disciples preached the full Gospel and shared many powerful testimonies. The Holy Ghost ministered powerfully and four of them were visibly touched. One in particular was cut to the heart and agreed to come along to church that Sunday.
On streets a disciple met a young girl who attends a local church. The young girl shared that she had been struggling with her walk with Jesus. The disciple was able to preach the importance of biblical discipleship and the sober Gospel message of heaven and hell. The young girl said “I felt that!! Man those words are anointed!!” Her friend who stood next to her also agreed. Both girls received prayer and prophecy.
Myself and another disciple met a man outside the library who had just arrived from Auckland. As we got talking he said that he was familiar with the GF of Manurewa. It turned out he’s been living in Manurewa for the past few years. He said that he had received the Gospel message from members of the Manurewa GF. He claimed to be a Christian but as the Word was brought to him his response quickly showed that he was not. His friend who sat quietly next to him got talking and shared his view on Christianity. He expressed that he had a lot of anger and hatred toward God. He started to raise his voice and said “I don’t even want to talk about it anymore it makes me angry”. Led by the Holy Ghost I got to share some powerful testimonies of the war he was ignorant about. You could see the man’s countenance change and he really softened. The lies of the enemy were being exposed as God spoke through me. It was obvious he was unaware of the war we are born into between light and darkness. Before we left they both said it’s good what you’s are doing out here kept their tracts and shook the our hands.
As you can see these testimonies speak for themselves. God IS mighty, and He is the same today, tomorrow and forever!! It’s been an outstanding time since I personally arrived in Levin 6 months ago to oversee this church. God is good all the time and is moving rapidly! Time is short so let’s win this nation for Christ!
Lastly, in September Revs Tim & Linda, Rafael, and Noa Trevenen touched down to join AHKC Levin waging war against the enemy!! A huge welcome to them!! We are totally blessed to have them here to fight the good fight of faith.
God is doing mighty things in these last days. Men, woman, and children don’t waste your life!! Get discipled and be conformed to the Word and the Spirit of God. Don’t be a dreamer, be an imitator of JESUS CHRIST, the Greatest Man who ever lived!!
Thank you for taking the time to read our update and joining with us in prayer for the souls in Levin NZ.
