Holy Spirit filled us with His joy in a Restaurant

One of our Church Elders invited a few of us to dinner in a prestigious Chinese Restaurant located in a hotel. I am usually quite hesitant to dine in a public place with my Church members. If I have to, I would try to remain silent because God’s revealed Word, spoken through the lips of an anointed man of God, ought to lead to a demonstration of power.

Jesus said “The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life” (John 6:63). “Is not my word like fire,” declares the Lord, “and like a hammer that breaks a rock to pieces” (Jeremiah 23:29).

This is what happens in every Saturday Power Meeting at CKRM. God’s word just hit some people to the floor and some will be filled with joy with various manifestations, whether it is spiritual, physical or emotional.

On that day in the restaurant, however hard I tried not to speak and just had casual conversation sharing my life experience, the Holy Spirit suddenly filled us with His joy and our table was the noisiest with eyes staring at us. All of us were laughing uncontrollably and a sister just fell to the floor under the power of God laughing. Suddenly one of our brothers in Christ overheard a child telling the parent or relation dining on another table to call the police, thinking that the sister fell because she was pushed down.

Nehemiah 8:10 “… for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

It's so easy for certain people to move in the Holy Spirit. However, why it's does not happen to anyone who really has the passion for His Glory? Someone may has sincere heart and try to move in the Spirit (or follow the steps as in David Herzog's book), however, we can't get the results of what has written in the book. Does it means the God's anointing for doing certain works is for certain people? If not, why someone really cannot move in certain type of anointing?

Dear Thomas,
Unless God reveals, we really don't know the reason for the hindrance. For my case, God saw my deep desire to seek Him travelling a great distance to USA and by His grace, He revealed and repentance cleared the path. At CKRM, many people have been blessed after leading them to repent.
