We’ll get straight into this word by reading a few passages from the bible…
“And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, because she thought,
“If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.”
Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.”
(Mark 5: 25-29)
An Encounter with the King who Heals.
“As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”
“Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked.
“I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied. “Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.””
…For three days, Saul was blind and did not eat or drink anything, I encourage you to read the verses in between, but now we jump to verse 17 which continues;
“Then Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands on Saul, he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord—Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.”
Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized, and after taking some food, he regained his strength.
Saul spent several days with the disciples in Damascus.
At once he began to preach in the synagogues that Jesus is the Son of God.”
An Encounter with the King who Redeems.
“Then these men were bound in their coats, their trousers, their turbans, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. Therefore, because the king’s command was urgent, and the furnace exceedingly hot, the flame of the fire killed those men who took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.
Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?”
They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.”
“Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”
An Encounter with the King who Saves and Delivers
from the hand of the adversary.
Now you may be expecting me to delve into the power of what God did in these three stories, but in fact I’ve simply put them here for you to get a taste of what is to come in your own life when you Encounter God.
In fact, what God gave me, for you, when He gave me this word ‘E N C O U N T E R’, is a divine prayer, and here it is for you, open your heart and receive it…
May you always have an Encounter;
(a divine, life-changing experience of God’s glory and might)
when you walk into the presence of God.
I pray that every time you seek God,
You will surely meet with He, who is the Most High.
What do I mean by an Encounter?
I mean that you will feel Him so closely as though He were right there touching your shoulder.
I mean that you will hear Him so clearly as though He was speaking right into your ear.
I mean that you will experience His love so richly that your heart can only burst forth with love and joy to all those around you.
Whenever you step into the presence of God, that is whenever you step forth and approach His throne of Grace, be it in your home in private, or in a public place, I pray you will feel Him all over you so intensely and so strongly.
I pray that whenever you knock on the door to experience the King, you surely will Encounter Him in all His grace, glory and wonder.
I pray no Encounter shall ever be duplicated, but rather each time there shall be
New words and
New revelations, given onto you.
Each and every single time you press into God,
Each and every single time you seek the face of God, I pray that He will reveal Himself to you and allow you to feel Him so mightily.
May your life continuously be transformed for good, every time you call upon the name of Jesus, so that means a Daily Refreshing of your anointing!
in Jesus’ Mighty Name.
Dear friend, I pray, that you will Encounter the King, deeply.
in Jesus’ Precious Name.
Now just one important instruction to go alongside this message – God is asking us to ask Him to purify our hearts.
He wants to cleanse the place He will dwell, therefore He is calling us, to call on Him in order for Him to help transform, renew and Purify our hearts.
Hearts ready to Encounter Him.
