I realized that my post yesterday was the first in many, many months so I wanted to give a more complete update on what's been happening.
Many businesses operate on a 'fiscal calendar.' In the same way, I believe that there is also a ‘spiritual calendar’ as well.
For me, the spiritual year began on Wednesday, the 21st of September, 2011. It was here that for the first time (after 15 years of being a Christian) I witnessed a true outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
This took place at the Expect Conference in
. I would tell you who the speakers were but it really doesn’t matter - Jesus was there (that’s all that matters) and He poured forth the Promise of the Father. For three days we were at the very gates of heaven. Colorado Springs
Even as I am writing this I realized something very interesting. About two years ago the Lord gave me a very clear word when I was walking down the hall of the school where I teach. It was so simple: "Autumn will be your most fruitful season."
It was a wonderful word! I grew up in
New England and autumn is breathtakingly beautiful! It is truly a time of Harvest.
Anyway, I realized that autumn began in 2011 on September 23 - the day after the Expect Conference ended! How awesome of God to confirm His word to me with such a clear sign.
Moreover - I turned 40 several days ago and thus autumn has truly begun!
Since that Conference I have seen what I would call 2 general moves of the Holy Spirit at two different 'retreats.' One adult, men's retreat and one college retreat.
I have also seen 1 general move of the Holy Spirit at a local church.
Praise the Lord!!
