On that Spirit-filled night God drew to Him the largest crowd ever seen at the Rialto for a Christian meeting. At the one and only altar call, virtually every man, woman and child, (who could) stood up as one to accept Jesus, then stood in line to individually be led in the repentance prayer.
Parents wept as children were healed of crippling diseases. The deaf had hearing restored perfectly, partially sighted persons were healed. New believers prayed in thanks as they were freed from asthma, arthritis, migraine, drugs, alcohol etc. The excited crowd almost overwhelmed the solitary evangelist so that all were reseated and asked to come out row by row. Time after time Jesus healed as hundreds were slain in the spirit. It was a wonderful night of reconciliation, healing and freeing and several exciting days when thousands were touched by Jesus over the airwaves, to the Glory of God.
However we know this to be only a nucleus** of what God is about to do in Derry. What Jesus did on that memorable night was to plant the seed of life in a dying city. A seed which will grow and blossom and envelop the people there with His Goodness and Love. Peace and Prosperity will follow. Already prayer groups are forming. More souls have been led to the Lord as daily, callers contact the radio station and some of the baby Christians for copies of the repentance prayer to repent and turn to Jesus and to live in a deeper relationship with Him.
ROMANS 10:9: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised HIM from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
ROMANS 10:12: For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek; for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon HIM
John 10: 37-38: Do not believe Me unless I do what My Father does. But if I do it, even though you do not believe Me, believe the miracles, that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father"
Heb. 13:8: Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.
We cannot thank enough all you prayer warriors and intercessors who have selflessly given prayerful support to the Lord's work. Grateful thanks is also extended to Foyle Radio station and Derry City council for their kind cooperation. Please keep them in your prayers.
PS. The Lord has instructed us where and when to go next. PLEASE PRAY for our 70th outreach with an even greater harvest in DUBLIN in March 2001, where there will be an unprecedented move of the Holy Spirit.
