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.”
