THE MANIFEST PRESENCE OF GOD
Last night I had a dream about a well-known Pastor named Creflo Dollar who has a church called “World Changers”. I haven’t followed his ministry for many years but I remember what a great teacher he was and I’m sure he still is today. Creflo is a man of faith and has a powerful anointing on his life. I attended one of Kenneth Copeland’s Believers Convention’s back in the 90’s and Creflo was one of the speakers. The manifest presence of God was so strong. Hundreds of people were saved, healed, and delivered and lives were transformed.
In my dream I was in a huge building and I heard people talking in the back of the room. I turned around and saw that it was Creflo Dollar. I was excited to see him so I walked to the back to talk to him. I said “Hi Creflo”, and as I was walking towards him the anointing of God was radiating off of him with such intensity. When I was a few feet away I began to float up off the ground. I floated up a few inches as if there was no gravity.
The closer I got to him the stronger the anointing was. There was a man with him who is a worship leader named Alvin Slaughter. Alvin looked over to me and said “Wow look at that”. He was also feeling the manifested presence of God. When I woke up and recorded this dream, I understood the interpretation was about the body of Christ (The World changers) carrying such a weighty anointing that people will sense the presence of Jesus when they are around us. Note: I am not endorsing Creflo Dollars ministry,
Some of you may be thinking right now that they are “Prosperity preachers” or “Word of Faith” pastors. Yes they are and they have a fiery anointing on their lives and ministries. I don’t know why the Holy Spirit used Creflo in this dream, but one reason is that the Lord is reminding me of what I was taught back in the day through Kenneth E. Hagin. I was not only taught how to walk in faith and walk in love, but how to use my authority to decree, declare and pray the Word of God.
I was taught about forgiveness, tithing, how to walk in integrity and I learned about the gifts of the Holy Spirit. I learned about the angelic realm and the demonic realm. I was taught how to recognize the anointing and the presence of God and walk in the Spirit 24/7 rather than just on Sundays. I knew that I had to keep the full armor of God on at all times rather than just putting it on in the morning. I believe that the Holy Spirit is bringing us into a time when the full council of God will be taught once again.
The Lord wants to manifest Himself in ways that we’ve not yet known. There is an impartation when the anointing is tangible. We could learn how to hear the voice of God in our everyday lives. We need to get to a place where we are able to discern the spiritual climate around us. We might have to break through a lot of resistance, but if we pursue Jesus we will break through.
The presence of God is like a cloud but it is rarely seen with our natural eyes. There's a place that you could go to receive downloads from heaven. There is a place where you could receive manna from heaven. Encounters are birth in the secret place of intimacy. The Lord wants to give you supernatural encounters and speak to you in dreams and visions. He wants to manifest His presence in your lives and ministries and bring His manifest presence right into your homes
1 Kings 8:11
So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD.
In a dream, in a vision of the night, When deep sleep falls upon men, while slumbering on their beds,then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction.
You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.
