July 2013 Newsletter
Praise the Lord! We have just returned from two weeks in Liberia and the trip was the most successful that Dominion Grace Ministries has experienced since visiting Africa for the first time in 2008. We conducted four Pastor-training seminars, two of them were two day seminars and two of them were three-day seminars. In the evenings we visited various churches and also did open air meetings. Overall there were over 300 pastors, evangelists, apostles and church workers that attended our meetings and were awarded certificates of completion for the New Testament seminar that we conducted.
Romans 5:10-11 "For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation." This is talking about Jesus at Calvary. The word in the Greek for reconciliation is “katallege" and it means restoration to divine favor. The King James version of the Bible uses the word atonement instead of reconciliation.
My friends it is not two churches, but one church! If anything there should be a greater manifestation today than then. What’s the problem? Unbelief! The traditions of men. Signs, wonders and miracles follow those who believe or the believing ones! You can be born-again, but not believing in signs, wonders and miracles. The Father wants people to be saved, healed of sickness and disease, delivered from demons and filled and protected by the Holy Spirit from every attack of the devil. Signs and wonders demonstrate Jesus’ power to the unsaved and encourage believers in their faith.
The Bible that you and I read is about a person. That person is the Lord Jesus Christ. We should be able to find Jesus on the pages of every book in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Colossians 1:15-18 tells us that if we want to understand Almighty God the Father we should look at Jesus. He (Jesus) is the creator and the reason for creation of all things. He is the head of the church, which is His body, and He has the pre-eminence, which means first in rank and influence. Our focus now as New Testament Christians is all about Him not on ourselves.
