Secret of the Glory

“At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from Him, He turned around to the crowd and asked; “Who touched my clothes?”. “You see the people crowding around you – and yet You can ask ‘Who touched Me?’” His disciples asked. But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. The woman came and fell at His feet trembling with fear and told Him the whole truth. He said to her; “Daughter your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering”. (Mk 5:30-34)

This is an amazing story, because Jesus did not walk through the crowd looking for His next victim. There was no deep revelation in His mind that somewhere in the crowd was a woman with an issue of blood. Not at all! Yet that is often how people think of healing. “If only He would get a word for me?” We have seen so much showmanship and we have little understanding of the Glory of God.

Jesus healed all who came to Him, because He carried an anointing that released the perfect will of God (Lk 4:18-21).

Jesus said that He only did what He saw His Father do. Notice: She had heard about Him! She heard that Jesus was healing everyone and that power was going out of Him at the very touch of His garment. Her thought… “If I can just touch the hem of His garment.” What was the secret she understood? It was the secret of the Glory of God. She knew in her heart that God was good and that doctors had failed to cure her.

  • He didn’t pray for this woman.
  • He didn’t give her a healing!
  • He didn’t lay His hands on her.
  • She touched His garment and her faith placed a demand on His anointing… the Glory of God!

You see, the real secret we must uncover in our day is the secret of the Glory of God! The Apostle Paul said, “My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus” (Phil 4:19). There are riches in the Glory that are yet untapped, because we have not pressed in to touch, or put a demand upon the anointing that rested on Jesus.

Worship:

When you and I enter His Presence, awaken our senses to the voice of the Holy Spirit and wade into His atmosphere in worship; we are touching spiritual substance. Let me repeat that… “we are touching spiritual substance!” Its unseen with human eyes, but through faith we can navigate through the realms of Glory and fellowship with God. That is the time to put a demand upon the resources made available by the heavenly Promises of God.

Our Inheritance:

Touch the hem of His garment… go ahead and pull upon the rich inheritance He has purchased for you. Don’t wait to get to heaven or hope for a preacher to get a word for you. Your inheritance is for you… even now (Eph 1:13-14) and you can access it by faith today. Tell Jesus the whole story, but then look for His goodness to show up in your need.

Update Kisii

Email & Phone Communication received 10-25-2012:

Dear Brethren in Christ,

Kisii, Southwest Kenya

Pastor Opingo Preaching

     Much greetings to you in Jesus name. The grace, love and peace to you always in Jesus name. I thank God for directing me to your website which has been of great touch to my heart. I thank you for what you are doing in the Lord. I pray God to help you as you touch many souls around through your website.
     I am Pastor Opingo from Kisii, Kenya and I am a devoted man of God who is giving hope to the needy souls for spiritual word and to the needy children who are orphans. I preach every Sunday to a congregation of 64 members whereby I see God’s hand moving to His people. Many people get saved and others healed. I thank God for the work He has given me and I always pray for His strength.
     I am also caring for 14 orphans. These orphans are really in needy for prayers, food, clothes shelter. I started this project in the year 2009. The Vision of this project is to give hope to the destitute children who have no parents. I am doing a great work and I pray God to provide for them so that they can have good health.
     I really send my heartfelt invitation to you to come over here in Kenya to share and minister to us the work I am doing. Your participation will be of great change to the work here in Kenya. It is my prayer and hope that you will humbly accept my request of joining together our hands to make a change to many lifes. God bless you and hope to read from you soon.

My Response by email just 20 minutes later:

Hello Pastor Opingo
It is good to hear from another brother from the region of Kisii – Kenya. I say Jambo in the Mighty Name of Jesus. God is so good to connect us. I know from what I have felt in my heart that God has His hands upon that region. If you go to http://revivalhut.com/open-hearts-open-doors/ you will find a post about a Pastor Andrew Morang’a and his ministry in Kisii. As I told you by phone I have a deep desire to go to this region and our prayer has been for God to raise up a group of pastors and spiritual leaders for beginning an Apostolic Training Center. I will be there in March 2013 God willing and until then we shall continue to pray and communicate with you. Send my greetings to the pastors as you meet with them. I have dissapointed some in the past because we could not reach them sooner.
3 Pastors in the region that you should meet:
George Keenga Marabu – email: gkcompassionate@yahoo.com
Bernard Nyakebere Mose – email: arpachshadm@yahoo.com
Andrew Morang’a – email: andrewmob28@yahoo.com

Blessings Pastor Ron Bateman

Excited About New God Connections!

Pastor Opingo with follow-up email…

Dear Pastor Ron,
     I am really blessed to get you online and I am spiritually moved to speak with you on phone. Thank you again for your special prayers to me and I thank God for this wonderful connection. God is really great to His people. I give glory and honor to Him for this connection. Pastor, I strongly believe that God is going to do mighty things here in Kenya as we pray and work together as a team. God has given us a great task to make Him known to all people and more so to given lost souls hope for the coming of His Kingdom. It is our high time to work for the Lord and to do according to His will. I really welcome you with my whole heart here in Kisii to minister and share with us according to His will. I pray for you and ask God to help you in all ways, to give you strength in His work.
     I pray that God will make you prepare enough teachings and sermons for the people of Kenya next year. During your coming next year I will cover you with a place to stay in my home and I will also talk to one of my friends to cover you with a car which you will use for the time you will be here in Kenya. God has really revealed this to me that you will have a wonderful time with us here in Kisii, Kenya.
     I have attached recent pictures of the church and the orphans. I hope you will be blessed to see them. It is my request to you to keep praying for the work in Kenya so that God may open His ways for us more especially to orphans. My heart always goes to them. The Bible says: ”Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from polluted by the world.” (James1:27)
     I have really devoted myself to the Lord’s work more especially to His little ones. I thank God for taking good care of you as He is using you to reach many souls around Africa. I look froward to fellowship with you here in Kenya one day. Blessings and love.
     Pastor Opingo.

Who Touched Me?
