"I've come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already ablaze!“ (Luke 12:49)
To describe BURNING HEARTS with only a few words is nearly impossible, but if it had to be done, these would be the words most fitting. People from over 30 nations gathered in Lüdenscheid and experienced the intense presence of the Holy Spirit. In many participants a new fire of passion for Jesus was fanned into flame.
A Fire of Worship
TENGERIN DOO (Mongolian for 'Sound of Heaven'): „... when you gather, everyone has something.“ (1. Cor. 14:26) In other words: "I participate in the worship with the gifts that God has given me." This is the kind of worship we have been doing in our fellowship for a few years now. It was exiting to see if this would also work with 2000 participants from different backgrounds. And it did work! We went with the flow of a Holy Spirit inspired worship. God has so much more for us than just being entertained by a band in worship. We are not to passively wait what might happen. It is for everyone to be involved!
Fire of Passion
‚What does fear of man mean and how can I be set free from it?' That was a big topic throughout the event. God is igniting a new fire in us - a fire of passion for Jesus and a fire of the Saviour's love for a lost world! Power messages from Mel Tari, Ben Fitzgerald, Todd White and Walter Heidenreich called us into this new passion for the lost world. No one else but the people of God is the answer to the cry of the lost for salvation. In Jesus we have the power and the authority to perform miracles. This message and its impact brought hundreds of participants into the steets of Luedenscheid and surroundings during the event. This has blessed our city so much! Right there and then people reveived healing and salvation.
At the same time as the sessions in the event hall there were teachings of the guest speakers in the Power Tent. Motto and vision was to hear, reinforce and activate. Participants experienced healing and deliverance. They grew in faith and took possesion of their calling - e.g. a young woman, who was moved so much by God's heart for the lost, she had to cry all through the session. Immediately after, she went and preached the gospel with new passion and boldness. She could not keep quiet about her God, whom she had experienced so intensely.
BURNING HEARTS Kids – the Leaders of Tomorrow
It was a highlight in itself to see 200 kids express their love to Jesus in song, dance and pictures. This way they passed on, what they had received from Jesus. As with the adults the topic was freedom from fear.Fear that had come into the kids´ lives through movies and video games. Kids preached for kids, sharing about their personal experiences of how they had been set free from fear and received forgiveness. Kids invited Jesus into their lives and received the gift of praying in tongues. A 12year old girl felt led to preach. Another one received a very specific prophetic impression, which she applied on Saturday during the outreach in the streets. Others had prophetic dreams. There were supernatural revelations and deep encounters with God in abundance. The Holy Spirit himself planted invaluable seeds into the hearts of tomorrow's leaders.
40 Years of FCJG
During BURNING HEARTS we also looked back at 40 years of FCJG history: 40 years of experiencing the love and faithfulness of God for our fellowship. We are very thankful for everyone who invested their lives to help building FCJG. You have helped FCJG to become a part of Kingdom-of-God history. And it continues to write history today! But most of all we give honour to Jesus - because of Him we are, what we are.
