Wherever we share the gospel, the Lord would always fill the place with joy.
During our 1st sharing at CKRM Banting Church in Selangor on 26 July 2009, many of the congregation were filled with the joy of the Lord. A local ‘Feng Shui’ master was zapped by the Holy Spirit and wept very loudly. He repented and committed himself to the Lord. Instantly, he was filled with great joy and he danced to the delight of the congregation.
God hates sin but loves sinners. Like the fortune teller girl who was set free from demonic spirit (Acts 16:18), God can use such man for His glory for salvation of souls as people could see the miracle of God in the transformation of the ‘Feng Shui’ master to a man of our Living God.
“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom” (2 Corinthians 3:17). Where there is freedom (liberty) there is joy. Joy when manifest into laughter can and has set many people free from inner hurts and sadness.
God is love. When we have Christ in us, we have the love, joy and peace that Christ is. God is our very joy and the joy of the Lord is our strength (Nehemiah 8:10). The feeling or emotion of joy follows our faith and is the emotional response to the spiritual reality.
The fruit of joy can be expressed in different ways. Sometimes it can be very bright, loud and lively. People may sing, shout and dance.
Psalm 30:11-12, “You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever.”
A preacher’s wife testified how her life was transformed after the Holy Spirit zapped her. She trembled (Daniel 10:10-11) and burst into joy. Following is the link to her testimony:

Like the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23); the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power (1 Corinthians 4:20). This is Jesus’ DNA and as Paul said, “I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me in leading the Gentiles to obey God by what I have said and done --- by the power of signs and miracles, through the power of the Spirit. So from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum, I have fully proclaimed the gospel of Christ” (Romans 15:18-19).
Our mission is to do what the Lord has anointed us to do; to prepare and equip the people of God to bring not only the gospel of power to their Churches but also the freedom & joy and also to plant new Churches that carry the DNA of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!
在二零零九年七月二十六日, 当我们第一次在雪兰莪的CKRM万津超自然治疗中心分享时, 主的喜乐就充满了许多在场的会众。一位当地的‘风水’师傅被圣灵感动地大声哭泣。他认罪悔改并且决志跟随我们的主。之后他即刻被主的喜乐大大充满而在会众前欢喜快乐的跳起舞来。
神是爱。当我们有耶稣在我们里面时,我们就拥有耶稣的爱, 喜乐和平安。神就是我们的喜乐而耶和华的喜乐是我们的力量。(尼希米记 8:10).喜乐的感觉或情绪跟随我们的信心并且是我们属灵真实的情绪反应。
喜乐的果子以不同的方式表达自己。有时非常明亮, 大声和活泼。人们可能会唱歌, 喊叫或跳舞。
诗篇 30:11-12, “你已将我的哀哭变为跳舞，将我的麻衣脱去，给我披上喜乐，好叫我的灵歌颂你，并不住声。 耶和华 ─ 我的神啊，我要称谢你，直到永远！”
一位传道者的妻子见证她的生命如何被圣灵“电” 到后而改变。她颤抖 (但以理书 10:10-11) 并且发出笑声。以下的网址是她的见证:
就如圣灵所结的果子，就是仁爱、喜乐、和平、忍耐、恩慈、良善、信实、温柔、节制。 (加拉太书 5:22-23); 神的国不在乎言语，乃在乎权能。(歌林多前书 4:20)。这是耶稣的基因， 和保罗所说的∶“除了基督藉我做的那些事，我什么都不敢提，只提他藉我言语作为，用神迹奇事的能力，并圣灵的能力，使外邦人顺服；甚至我从耶路撒冷，直转到以利哩古，到处传了基督的福音。”(罗马书 15:18-19)。
我们的使命是做主膏我们做的事;就是准备和装备神的子民不但把福音的大能带回自己的教会, 也带回自由和喜乐， 还有设立带着耶稣基因的新教会。阿门!
