Standing Nearby

By shellyhuey | Uncategorized , Victory Update

Sunday night we attended the 25th Harvest Crusade @ Angels Stadium in Anaheim. From our seats we had a perfect panoramic view.  We comfortably observed as people filled in the VIP sections, box seats and first comers seats throughout the stadium.   What a powerful event.  Incredible worship music.  Greg Laurie delivered an ANOINTED gospel message.

It was an OVERFLOWING, packed stadium.  The Fire Marshall had to CLOSE and LOCK the doors.  People had to STAND NEARBY; just outside the stadium and watch live footage on the flat screens. After the message, Greg asked if anyone wanted to receive Jesus as their personal Savior.  Then he encouraged them to come forward, down onto the field.  People everywhere got up and left their seat and FLOODED onto the outfield.  Craig noticed the empty seats scattered throughout the stadium.  Then he saw a section that had way more empty seats than the others.

It was the section that was the last section to be filled.

It was WAY, FAR AWAY behind the outfield.

The last people to straggle into the stadium.

The people that came late.  But they came.  And they put their faith in him.

They will never forget last night.  Because His glory was revealed.

Forgive us God that We the Church are so slow to believe and understand that we are living in the last days, so we just STAND NEARBY and watch the lost stay closed out of your stadium of eternal abundant life.

Forgive us God that We the Church watch live footage of death and destruction of Christians worldwide on our flat screens.  We may pray for them; but weep not for those who cause it.  Because terrorists need the One and Only hope of Jesus too.

Forgive us God that We the Church tend to give attention to the first comers, box seats, VIP sections and ignore the stragglers, the late, the last, the least, the forgotten.  The WAY, FAR AWAY.

Maybe we forgot that God the Father Fire Marshall has a specific time that HE will permanently CLOSE and LOCK the doors to his grace and mercy.  And your loved ones that do not know Jesus will not be allowed in.  (Revelation 3:7)

(Revelation 20:11-14)

Maybe we forgot that before we knew Jesus, we were no different than a terrorist.  Separated from A HOLY God because of our evil sin.  (Romans 3:23)

Maybe we forgot that Jesus always saves the best for last.  (John 2:10)

And the stragglers (the poor, crippled, blind and lame) are invited to His banquet table.  (Luke 14:21)

Let His Holy Spirit fill Your Life so YOU can deliver an ANOINTED gospel message to the lost.

Let His Extraordinary Love OVERFLOW onto the straggling people He puts in YOUR path.

Let His Limitless Grace FLOOD onto the outfields of your heart.

And your LIFE will be a powerful event.  With a perfect panoramic view.

For His glory to be revealed.

PRAY FOR:  Christians here in Southern California to become uncomfortable with comfort.  To come out of their comfortable stadium seats just observing. And stand up and walk boldly testifying of the good news of Jesus Christ.

PRAY FOR:  Church attendees to no longer just come to services, but to BE of service.  Not just at their church but in their community.  We need true permanent change through serving Our Almighty God here.  And take over our cities with His truth and love.

PRAY FOR:  Those that hate Christians.  That God would use us to be ministers of reconciliation to them.  For God to download creative ways that we can show our enemies HIS love.

PRAY FOR:  Election Forums throughout Southern California in Sept and Oct.  Craig and I are scheduling churches right now.  We have opportunities to travel to Bakersfield and Fresno as well.  We have done these forums at Hispanic churches with a translator.  Please pray for open doors for more of this.

PRAY FOR:  Many pastor friends of ours are meeting in Watts to pray and discuss needs there for youth and the community.  Pray these mighty warriors, who are on the front lines of revival; will see and receive Gods vision for Watts.

Emptied Out

By shellyhuey | Uncategorized , Victory Update

Empty things beg to be filled.  In my rush to get things done quickly, I accidentally knocked over a container of coffee.  It dumped out everywhere.  To my dismay it spilled all over the counter and really was a mess.  This coffee is NOT JUST ANY coffee.  It is my very favorite.  Special Blend.  Air roasted.  Fine grind.  Deliciously smooth.

The coffee I long for so much; I would go on a mission to hunt down and find.

So I quickly went into panic mode.  And scooped up every last ground I could find.

I couldn’t bear the thought of wasting any of that coffee.

I carefully refilled the container.  Today I got to partake in a cup of that spilled and refilled coffee.  It was perfect as always.  Others would never know that the accident had taken place.  Because the end result was the same as before.  Excellent to the last drop.

Forgive us God that We the Church seem to have a lot of “accidents” in handling our relationships with others and we tend to knock over our brothers and sisters in Christ by our words and actions.

Forgive us God that We the Church sometimes rush into “getting things done quickly”, go into panic mode and lose sight of the end result.

Forgive us God that We the Church are dumped out by You everywhere, and instead of looking like you, to the worlds dismay we really look like a mess.

Maybe we forgot that we are NOT JUST ANY child, but a child of the King

Maybe we forgot that You long for us so much that You go on a mission to find us.

Maybe we forgot that we are Your very favorite.  Your special blend of love.

When your heart spills hurt all over Gods counter,

He quickly scoops up every last tear He can find.

He can’t bear the thought of wasting any of your pain.  And He won’t.

So He carefully refills your heart container with His love.

And when you partake of His spilled and refilled love it will be perfect as always.

Others would never know that the accident had taken place.

The end results of Gods mercy and grace are always the same.

Excellent to the last drop.

PRAY FOR:  The Spirit of Compromise and The Spirit of Complacency to be broken here in the Sleepy South Bay.  And for A Holy Spirit Righteousness and sense of Urgency to be placed on the Christians hearts.

PRAY FOR: Christians not to be ashamed of the Gospel.  The good news of Jesus Christ needs to be proclaimed with our mouths.  People don’t hear if it’s not said.  AND how can they say it if they are not SENT?  (Romans 10:14,15)

PRAY FOR:  Pastors. Teachers and Leaders here to be cared for intimately by the Almighty Hand of God.  He is the One that truly knows ALL of their needs and concerns.  Pray these precious people hear His voice.

PRAY FOR:  Election Forums are starting up again in September and October.

Craig and I will be presenting @ churches throughout Southern California.

This is a transformational event that your church can’t miss.
