We gather every time for four or five basic reasons. Every time we gather, the convergence of the saints is for this purpose and to this end.
1. Every time we gather before God we gather for encounters.
An encounter is an experience that furnishes the reality of a person; a principle to your spirit.
Encounters are important they create convictions. Without an encounter you cannot have convictions. I know whom I believe the Bible says, and I am persuaded, persuaded; encounters.
2. Transformation through enlightenment.
The second reason why we gather is to give our destiny a chance to give our mind and our spirit an opportunity for transformation through the word of God. The Bible says we all with faces of unveiled beholding Him as in a mirror.
It says we are changed from one dimension of the glory to the other side even as by the spirit of God, and the word of God is His instrument of transformation. We are transformed by the power of the word.
It says do not be conformed to this age is the word aioni. Romans 12:1-2. It says I beseech thee brethren by the mercies of God. that you offer your bodies to God a living sacrifice.
And do not be conformed to this age is the Greek word ‘aioni’; the thinking pattern, the ideology that comes with this system.
It says but be yea transformed. Like a fly moves from egg, larva, pupa and adult. Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
That your mind being renewed will grant you the grace to proof what is that good, that acceptable and that perfect will of God.
So, when we gather like this expect the exegesis of scripture, discipleship with the maturity and the victory of the saints. It’s called doctrine.
I commend you to God, it says and to the word of His grace that’s able to build you up and to give you an inheritance among them that are sanctified.
And that from a child thou has known the holy scripture which is able to make you wise even unto salvation.
3. Every time we gather expect a manifestation of the love and the power of Jesus Christ.
Through miracles, signs and wonders, you must expect this.
That every time we gather it’s to see and to experience the miracles, the signs, the wonders that are revelations, not just of the might of the man of God alone but the love of Jesus.
When miracles happen, they are letters from Jesus to His creation, to His saints saying I love you and I do care. And also a revelation of the might of God.
4. Every time we gather it’s an opportunity for an impartation. Impartation is powerful. Impartation is a transference of spiritual possibilities.
The results that we command in this kingdom are predicated upon the kind, the level and the dimensions of grace that’s at work in us.
The Bible says and God is able to make all grace; not some grace. Grace is in dimensions.
There’s the grace for speed. There’s the grace for favour. There’s grace for breakthrough.
Just because you have a measure or a dimension of grace doesn’t mean you have everything. God is able to make all grace. So, there are distributions.
Listen carefully, while the words of God is coming; it doesn’t have to be a conscious impartation. The Bible says while Peter yet spoke these things, the Holy Ghost fell on all, not some, all they that heard him.
Provided you can hear; your spirit is ignited and you carry dimensions of graces that now begins to control new possibilities in your life.
Listen to me, if your life doesn’t capture certain dimensions of results; the honest explanation is that the grace for it is not there. It’s as simple and as honest as that.
And so we must open up our hearts to receive in addition to that which He has given us. We open up our heart ,we open up our spirits to receive this superior dimensions of graces.
I long to see you he said that I may impart upon you some spiritual gifts to the end that ye be established.
5. Every time we gather like this it’s an opportunity for fellowship and to experience the blessings of the Lord
Psalm 133 says how good and pleasant it is when brethren dwell together in unity.
No matter how powerful your secret place is with God, there are certain dimensions of spiritual possibilities that only happen under a cooperate atmosphere.
While they prayed together and fasted, the Holy Ghost spoke to them; separate me Paul and Barnabas. He spoke to them not to him.
The Bible says how good and pleasant it is when brethren dwell together in unity. It likens it to the oil that comes from the head of Aaron, the priest down to his beard, down to his skirt.
The Bible says there the Lord has commanded the blessings. So every time you come for koinonia or any spiritual meeting for that matter; let your spirit be open for this five things:
ii. Transformation that comes through the exegesis of the word, spiritual illumination.
III. A manifestation of the power of God to meet needs, to provide supernatural solutions.
iv. Impartation because every time God grant a grace to Jacob it’s because he intends for it to reach Israel. It’s not God’s idea that His graces resides with only one person so when He calls Jacob, it’s because He has Israel in mind.
