Fulfilling the Purpose of Christ - Abide in My Love SCRIPTURE FOCUS "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you."— John 15:13-16 "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends.

• What we'll do Healing & Deliverance Services Scriptures: Matthew 8:16; Acts 5:16; James 6:16 The Lord Jesus Christ has directed me to teach people to receive divine healing/deliverance, and to minister healing services on the Sabbath Day. We highly recommend you prepare heart to worship, two days before the healing service, and come with expectations on the third day. to receive your healing. We recommend you sanctify yourself on Wednesday and Thursday prior to the service on Friday, by repenting, praying, studying the scriptures, and fasting from all meats. Drink plenty of water, eat fruit, nuts, and raw vegetables (Exodus 19:10-11). The Holy Spirit is the administrator of the Spiritual Gifts of Healing[s] and Working of Miracles according to God’s Will. The anointing has power to heal, deliver, break every yoke of bondage, cure diseases, cast out devils, and set the captives free. Keep your eyes on Jesus during the healing services and not on the ministers. So today, if you hear His voice, harden not your heart, come freely seeking the Lord for the manifestation of your healing\deliverance in your spirit, body, and soul, and be made whole as it is written in the Holy Scriptures. He sent His Word and healed them all. Please forward this announcement to friends or family members that are seeking divine healing or deliverance.

Apostolic Word Of God Church Freewill Prophetic Worship Service. The Purpose Of Our Worship Of God The purpose of our worship is to glorify, honor, praise, exalt, and please God. The nature of the worship God demands is the prostration of our souls before Him in humble and contrite submission. Jesus says in John 4:23-24, ""But the hour is coming, and now is, when true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth."It doesn’t say we can worship God anyway we want, but we "must worship Him in spirit and in truth". The word "must" makes it absolute. There is no other way we can worship God and be acceptable to Him. God seeks true worshippers, and He identifies them as those who "worship Him in spirit and in truth". Worshipping God in spirit means that it must be done from the heart. Worshipping God in truth means that it must be done according as God has specified in the Bible. Come with Expectations: Expect to experience the Presence of the Lord. Follow the leading of the Holy Spirit and flow in the spirit. Expect "Soaking Time" This is your personal time seeking the Lord while listening to prerecorded music, as directed by the Holy Spirit. Come 15 to 30 minutes early for soaking time. Expect an atmosphere of freedom to worship and liberty in Christ Jesus. Expect the Holy Spirit to administer Spiritual Gifts in the Body of Christ: The Word of Wisdom, Word of Knowledge faith, gifts of healings, working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, divers kinds of tongues (languages), interpretation of tongues (languages), 1 Corinthians 12. Expect singing and praying in the spirit with understanding, 1 Corinthians 14:15 Expect to be filled with the spirit, speaking to yourselves in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs, making melody in your heart to the Lord. Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 5:18-20 Expect anointed teachings/preaching of the Word Of God. Expect to lay prostrate while seeking the Lord (bring a throw blanket). Note: The above is freely administered by the Holy Spirit, subject to change, and is not all inclusive. There is much more, but cannot be written here. Remember God sent you here for a purpose. Blessed be God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. Ephesians 1:3 We love you in Jesus name.
