God keeps His feasts. As we follow God’s rhythm and observe Sukkot, we see that He is with us mightily!
Despite the pandemic, God protected the church and enabled physical services to be resumed during Sukkot last year. Brothers and sisters came to the temple of God in person to watch the musical by the Levitical Drama Team, “The Prequel of the King of Love”. From that, they received more of God’s kindness and blessings, which I am deeply grateful for.
During both Resurrection Day and Sukkot this year, by God’s protection, physical services continue. In order to celebrate God’s tabernacle among us, Kingdom Artists are presenting a brand new musical “The Pilgrim’s Progress”. It will be shown in six services this week, telling the story of “Christiana” embarking the Heavenly Journey. Through this new musical, God makes us see His presence and His ever-present help in times of need. I hereby give you this verse: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, ‘God with us.’” (Matthew 1:23) God is truly with us and He grants us peace during the pandemic and amid various difficulties. Moreover, the Holy Spirit keeps giving us new blessings.
For instance, five co-workers shared on “Christ Was Born in Sukkot” last week and each of them preached with his Being. Thank God for giving us this new flow. In the previous few weeks, five pastors-to-be took turns to preach with their spouses on five Sundays when they released the anointing of the couples’ unity. We see that God is blessing us greatly and I am truly thrilled to see that He is raising up couples and our next generation.
Apart from raising up vessels, God is giving us land. Last Sukkot, we got the place for ANEW service where nations and peoples may come and worship God. This Sukkot, God has prepared a new place for our young people: the Duck Duck House. It happened to come to use this Sukkot for the next generation to arise and praise God! Moreover, in the early September, the media center in Young Ya obtained permission to run as a media center. God is using us mightily as a media church to take His messages around the world!
Thank God that regardless of the situation, “The best of all is God is with us”! He will take care of us and protect us! May I bless every brother and sister to experience the abundance of God’s presence in Sukkot!■【2021.0926】
