“A Man and Women Truly Being Blessed by the Spirit of God”
By: Pastor Lorenzo Edwards
We thank God for Pastor Dillon and Sis Dillon on this special day. They have made it through for 11 years of dedicated services. And for a man and a women to make it through for 11 years preaching and teaching the word. And supporting her husband through these years they have to be anointed by God.
Can I get a witness? Eleven is a special number. God is saying this is going to be a special year.
Number Eleven possesses the qualities of intuition, patience, honesty, sensitivity, and spirituality. Others turn to people who are ’Eleven’ for teaching and inspiration, and are usually uplifted by there experience. And Pastor Dillon some of the things you been threw this pass year has uplifted some folks. Your experience that you went threw was not for you but it was for some body to see what the Lord can do. And I want to tell you today if know body else is uplifted I am uplifted by you brother.
People with this number could be both idealistic and visionary. And God wants you two to know the visions and the Ideals that he has given you for the past eleven years are going to come to pass.
Eleven bring the gift of spiritual inheritance, is gifted as the "Light-Bearer". It is the number of the Light within all. Strengthened by the love of Peace, gentleness, sensitivity and insight. And in Matthew 5:14 Jesus said that ye are the light of the world, a city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. What he is saying to you is that your gift and your talents and most of all your anointing will not be hid. But it will be seen through the world. And the word also in verse 16 of that same chapter say "Let your light so shine before man, that they may see your good works and glorify your father which is in heaven."
As we look at this scripture we can see to be able to preach good tiding onto the meek and to be sent to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives you have to be anointed. To lead folks that sometimes don’t want to be lead you have to be anointed. To deal with the things that pastors and there wife have to go through they have to be anointed by God. You have to have the power of the Lord on your side to make through this thing for 11 years. God said you might have had some ruff years but this eleventh year he is going to make the crocket places straight, and he is going to make your rough places smooth.
And for a man and women to be truly lead by spirit of God They have to be anointed by God. Because a counselor can’t get a pastor through some of the hell that he’s got to go through. It’s got to be the anointing. To fight demons and deal with persecution from your own members there got to be an anointing. To stand in the gap and pray for folks that want give you the time of day you have to be anointed.
For a Pastor and his wife to be able to preach and teach and doing the work of God.
I tell you that are got to be an anointing. I come to be a witness. You can’t do this with out having the hand of the Lord upon you. Even if you are going through rough times, you have to know that God will see you through. When the spirit of the Lord is upon you, you can be down but you know that Lord will pick you up. When, the spirit of the Lord is upon you. When the tithes and offering is low. You will say I know the Lord will make a way some how. Do you know what I am talking about? I can’t do anything without the spirit of the Lord being upon me. I can’t fight the enemy without having the spirit of the Lord being upon me. I can’t go through trials and tribulations with out the spirit of the Lord being upon me. I can’t deal with some of the folks I got to deal with on my job, in my community and even in my church without the Spirit of the Lord upon me. And I sure can’t preach with out the Spirit of the Lord upon me. Because the bible says how can you hear without a preacher and how can he preach unless he has been sent. And God is not going to send somebody to preach to the meek without having the spirit of the Lord upon them.
