Thank you for such a great welcome. Thank you so much. It's great to be back with you and to see your
new facility and to see what God is doing among you - absolutely awesome! Why don't we give the Lord
the glory tonight, let's give Him the honour for what He's about to do in our lives. We honour you Lord! We
praise you Lord! We give you all the glory! You paid the price for our freedom in Calvary and we thank
you tonight for all you'll do this week end. Amen. Praise the Lord.
Well give someone a high five before you sit down. Thank you musicians, awesome. Well wonderful,
great to be with you and great to have so many people. Some have travelled such a long way and I want
to just before I start and to share, thank you so much Jurgen and Leanne for having us here. We just love
being with you and we just honour you for the great work you've done getting this whole facility up,
everything, just fantastic. Really great. What a great church you are. We're just looking forward to what
God will do, so just a few things, just a few practical things and people com ing tonight, some of you will
have no idea. You've just come because someone told you to come and kept asking until you said yes.
And then you're sitting thinking I wonder why I'm here [laughs] and what might happen and some of you
will be thinking well when's the exorcism begin! ... [Laughter/applause] ... so there'll be all kinds of
thoughts about different things.
So the first thing to realise is our journey into freedom and wholeness, it's a journey, it's a process, not
just a one off. So if you're just looking for a one off I think you won't get what you're looking for, but if you
just say God, I'm opening my life this weekend in a whole new way, I'm expecting to come and receive,
Lord just begin to speak to me and what I will believe will happen is God will help you where you are. And
the second thing is that the things that are supernatural are not necessarily spectacular, so don't look for
the spectacular. Just look for God to come and touch you and help you in some way and someone next to
you may be spectacular and spin around and fall on the ground and scream and yell and all that, but it
doesn't have to be you, okay? It'd be good if it was you though. I would really like that. I like it when it gets
action packed and there's a lot of stuff happens, but it does n't need to.
You don't have to have any major manifestations to get set free. So during the time of sharing - I always
want to lay a word foundation so you have understanding about what's happening or you have an
experience with a little understanding of what's going on and the part you play in it, so for example we
know Jesus died for every person in the world, but there's a part that we have to play in order to get
And so we know that on the cross Jesus paid the price for every person to be forgiven, but to be forgiven
there's a part you play in the process. It's not just like, you know, if God was going to save everyone
they'd all be saved now - so there's the need for people to hear the word of God for faith to arise and a
response to be made. Jesus constantly said according to your faith there to be done to you. So coming
tonight, you'll be in different levels of fait h, different levels of expectancy and that's okay to be where you
are, and I just encourage you to just take the next step, whatever that happens to be for you in your
journey into freedom.
Now when we're sharing and what'll happen is there's a flow of anointing starts to come and you may
start to find yourself feeling uncomfortable, so spirits can manifest anytime in a meet ing and I'm never
sure when they will or whet her they will or what. I just never know. It's one of the great unknowns and I
actually love it when it happens but sometimes it happens and suddenly something will - someone will
begin to - the spirit that's in them will begin to manifest it's presence because of the anointing of the Holy
Spirit and they may not have known that they had a spirit. They may never have realised that and then
suddenly they find that there's something happening in their body that they've got no control over or little
control over.
