Lucan Spa Hotel,
County Dublin, Ireland.
An Irish family owned hotel near Dublin on the East of Ireland.
The outreach date and location has been set….. by the Lord. County Dublin!
This is what happened…
Another move of the Holy Spirit prophesied.
Paul had it very heavy in his spirit that the outreach would be in the Spa hotel, Lucan, County Dublin on Sunday 4th March, but the Lord had not yet confirmed it. As usual Paul sent me to assess the situation and where necessary make all the arrangements. However this time when I met the banqueting manageress with whom I had booked meetings before, I had a surprise. She was most disappointed to have to tell me that the date required was out of the question!
Firstly, that night was one of a series of nights when the hotel were running ‘tea dances’ for older folk. Secondly another bombshell. She informed me that due to a new marketing manager’s instructions, she was under strict orders not to give special concessions to anyone re: hire rates, (not even for God’s work). The new rate was nearly four times that which we would normally pay and we could not afford it.
The next Wed. night I reported the bad news. Paul was astounded and just could not understand it. That night when we prayed the Lord said, “Son, no doors on earth are closed to you and no man can step in your way”. We decided that the next day I would try some other hotels.
However I was unexpectedly delayed that morning and didn’t get round to booking anything straight away. By midmorning a delighted Paul rang me. The Lord had told him to phone the Spa Hotel. Paul had protested that the hotel was booked and that we could not afford it. The Lord said,” Phone, you’ll see”.
Paul rang the marketing manager. When asked if the hall was for hire on that night he answered immediately and without hesitation, Certainly sir! Not only that he quoted a greatly reduced price which we can afford and offered the hall from early afternoon, enabling us to have a children’s pre-meeting or music practice/prayer etc. Paul jumped into his car, sped to the hotel, placed the deposit, secured a receipt and booking confirmation and…the outreach is on!
He who kneels before God – can stand before anyone!
Not by our speeches, nor by our preaching but in demonstration of the Spirit and of Power, through miraculous signs and wonders, the love, compassion and mercy of our Living God was proven to unbelievers, sceptics, doubters and even some ‘neither hot nor cold’ Christians.
Praise the Lord for the mighty move of the Holy Spirit in saving over one hundred hurting souls who were lost and broken.
Miracle, after miracle, after miracle, continuously set the captives free from arthritis, alcoholism, paralysis, disease, depression, deafness, drugs, eyesight problems, occult involvement and many other burdens.
Of the one hundred and fifty there, few had ever been to a prayer meeting before, (excluding a small number of believers). Nor had many ever read the Holy Bible yet EVERY SINGLE ONE raised their hands to receive Jesus as their Lord and Saviour and repeated aloud the repentance prayer. Then Paul led every single soul individually, in the prayer. This was after readings from Isaiah 53 and a detailed explanation of what Jesus endured for us, and why.
JESUS CHRIST the same yesterday,
and today and forever. Heb.13:8
