The 5th book of the Old Testament is Deuteronomy. The 5th chapter is where Moses presented the Israelites with the Ten Commandments. But in the verse before this, we read this simple yet life-changing phrase...
"The LORD spoke to you face to face..."
I pray for God to speak to each member of the Mozambique team face to face. It is from the encounters with The Living God that they will be able to minister in His Name.
The 5th book of the New Testament is Acts. Chapter 5 is about Ananias and Sapphira withholding offerings from The Lord and their demise as a result, but tucked into this account is the following nugget:
At the hands of the apostles many signs andwonders were taking place among the people; and they were all with one accord in Solomon's portico. But none of the rest dared to associate with them; however, the people held them in high esteem. And all the more believers in the Lord, multitudes of men and women, were constantly added to their number, to such an extent that they even carried the sick out into the streets and laid them on cots and pallets, so that when Peter came by at least his shadow might fall on any one of them. Also the people from the cities in the vicinity of Jerusalem were coming together, bringing people who were sick or afflicted with unclean spirits, and they were all being healed.
I pray this will be the case for this team. Signs, wonders, unity, respect, salvations, healings, deliverances...all manifested through face to face encounters with God.
Face to face with The ONE and face to face with the one. Loving The ONE and loving the one. Thank You Lord, for this blessed privilege.
