Firevolution is the yearly event of New Life Sta. Rosa I started attending since 2014 and now it’s my fourth year attending this revival meeting. This is a three-day event and I made it sure this year I would bring family, friends, and neighbors to experience what Firevolution is about. My mother, cousins, a friend, and a neighbor joined.
NOV 1: The first night, as the guest speaker is preaching nearly about to end his preaching I got filled with joy and laugh during the service it was the first time that it happened to me. During the ministerial as I was having an encounter with God filled me with the Holy Ghost, God gave me a word of knowledge and the Holy Spirit revealed “Great Joy” the Lord said “I have deposited great joy in you, you must not worry. Carry that joy in you to people, your city, and other cities.”
I remember as the event started its first night during worship, God reminded me how He transitioned my life. God showed me two pictures one was I was blowing cigarette smoke and drinking alcohol those late nights that I was so depressed that I had to drink so I can sleep. The other picture was God used my mouth to preach salvation, healings, and miracles. The guest speaker started to teach and preach and he mentioned that when every time we speak the gospel there is firepower comes out of our mouth. That’s exactly what the Lord showed me.
NOV 2: The second day, my cousin and friend joined us both of them never received the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues yet. I was blessed by the testimony of my friend Beth, she’s been a Christian since she was a child and it’s the first time that she got filled with the Holy Ghost and spoke in tongues and she told me that doesn’t know what to do to stop it because she was the last to get up from the floor after me. I was also filled with the wine of the Holy Ghost and could not stop laughing! Let me clear that up, the Holy Spirit is a perfect Gentleman He will not insist Himself to a person. The service ended at 11:30 pm and we got home by 12:30 am and we ate, and then we prayed. I encouraged Beth to use the gift of speaking in tongues she thought she lost it and was afraid why she couldn’t do it then eventually she spoke in tongues and we finished praying 2:30 in the morning. I was blessed to see her having an encounter with God to hear her testimonies.
NOV 3: The third night, I was asked to volunteer for the counselling this evening but I ended up to be a catcher to some people during the ministerial. But when Rev. George Thomas asked everyone standing to sit on the floor I went to the carpet in front of the stage. I was sitting at first and I laid down eventually and was filled by the Holy Ghost anointing to the overflowing. There’s so much anointing coming out from the sound of the drums that I believed I got delivered from something. My head was shaking from side to side, up and down, my feet and hands are paddling like I was swimming in the presence of God. There was a point that I felt like I was light as a feather where in reality I am 200 plus pounds, I get up and crawled I was attempting to run, our neighbor saw me and she said I stood up as fast as a lightning. This is what happened, I was so full of the Holy Ghost I felt very light and God took my hand and He was pulling me up to the heaven and then I tried to open my eyes it was dark and I shouted “God… God…” and the ushers stopped me. Thank God they stopped me because I would run over the people in the people on the floor if they didn’t. Clap clap to the ushers! I was in the state the I was so full of the joy the Lord I was so high under His presence and I couldn’t explain how it felt like it’s unexplainable. All I know is that I want to stay in that kind of presence for the rest of my life.
I was full of the Holy Spirit and yet I wanted more and we’re all surprised that our senior pastor announced that Firevolution is extended for another week for the first time, from November 7 to 10, 2017 at 7:00 pm. I will try to reach out to some of my friends and invite them. Hallelujah!
