GOD IS CALLING YOU TO REPENT
With the presence of God filling the room, the Sunday Service at the Synagogue, Church Of All Nations Thessalonica, started with all the believers singing heavenly melodies to God. Praying lyrics of God-inspired hymns, their prayers reached God, and with strength and might He offered freedom, healing and blessing to anyone who asked in faith.
Later, the evangelist Eugenia Zefteridou preached a message titled “GOD IS CALLING YOU TO REPENT”, in which she explained that it is time to take the Word of God seriously as if our lives depend on it and to stop allowing sin to become an obstacle between us and God.
As she pointed out reading from the book of Jonah 1:1-2 and 2:1-11, it is not that the children of God do not wrong but when they do, the guilt of that action would not allow them to have peace of mind until they ask for and obtain forgiveness. Jonah was a genuine child of God, but he made a mistake and he sinned before God. However, that was a reason to get closer to God and repent. The evangelist explained, “When a child of God sins or attempts to do so, the Holy Spirit prompts his conscience to accuse him to repentance”. In other words, what God Almighty wants from us is to have a relationship with Him and to stay away from sin. This is something that seems impossible to many children of God today, because the people they associate with lead them to the path of sin, which is a way of no return. She also emphasized that instead of promising God that we will sacrifice something for Him the next time He forgives us, the best thing is to repent, because God does not need our sacrifice to take away the sin or the product of sin, but rather that we come to repentance.
Then, referring to the example of Ananias and Sapphira, she read from the book of Acts 5:1-5, and explained where sin leads if not followed by repentance. She revealed that one of the things that gives satan authority, legal right over a person is sin. Ananias and Sapphira allowed satan to enter their hearts through their weakness – their love for money. Many of us fall into the same trap. Therefore, we must all understand the fact that satan uses our weakness or limitation as a bait to trap us from running a straight race with God. Concluding her message the evangelist emphasized that sin is behind every problem that we face! That is why we need to recognize it as a real enemy and repent!
JESUS CHRIST WINS THE WAR AGAINST EVIL ATTACKS AND COURT CASES
On Sunday, 2 August 2020, Mrs. Gabriela Samuels and her husband, Mr. Kennedi Samuels, visited the Synagogue, Church Of All Nations Thessalonica, from Sweden to testify to all of the attendees for God’s untold gifts in their lives.
Everything started in February 2019, when Mrs. Samuels had a nightmare in which she was surrounded by cockroaches and human faeces. While she was holding her son, herself and her husband were trying to find a safe and clean place to put him, but it was nowhere to be found. Also, wherever they went they were trying to feed them dirty food. That demonic attack in the dream was the beginning of the torment that followed. They started having nightmares of spiders, snakes, scorpions and sharks biting them in dirty water. In those dreams, they would lose the battles. So, Mrs. Samuels started wondering if there was any charm or witchcraft in their house that cause all of that… She was wondering if she had done any mistake for all these attacks to take place. Mrs. Samuels, even, had a dream where four black-dressed men were standing around a dark book and were cursing her and her family. Her husband, Mr. Samuels, confirmed all that his wife said and added that he was fed and, also, disturbed by women in his dreams.
Before these attacks started, they had tried to buy a new house. After paying 200.000 euros to a company to renovate the house, they found out that this company went bankrupt and, unfortunately, they lost their money. At the same time, Mr. Samuels lost his job as a CEO of a company with hundreds of employees. So, they had to find a new building, to submit a petition to the municipality and to find the money. Also, they lost the architect that had taken up to build the house and, while this was happening, they had 14 court cases against them. Things had become extremely difficult at that period. Some people were threatening them that they would be disturbing them if they build a house at the particular location they decided on. Even the municipality was against their will, creating countless problems.
So, they started seeking God more and they came to the SCOAN Thessalonica, asking for God’s hand to intervene in their case. After participating in the prayer line, they met the man of God Harry in his office, who advised them to start a business of their own, to stand on their feet.
After the prayer they received, they realized that positive things started happening to them! On the 24th of June, 2020, they were granted the permission they had been waiting for to continue building their house.
The demonic attacks stopped, and the defeat in the battles that took place in their dreams was turned to victory. Also, obeying the instruction in righteousness of the man of God, they started a new company which is doing great. Their family has no financial problems anymore. By the grace of God, they won every court case and they glorify God for His unending mercy. Their life has been completely transformed and they know that without God’s intervention they could not have taken any step towards victory and success. Immediately after their testimony, they advised people to pray, to seek God and to repent for their wrongdoings!
Each time God comes with a huge blessing for you, the first sign you will see is that you will receive attack. However, keep on believing in God in the midst of the attacks, act on the Word of God and resist the devil! “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7)
TORN MENISCUS IS HEALED IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST
21-year-old Mr. Emmanuel Makia, a professional football player from Switzerland, was among the international visitors who attended the Synagogue, Church Of All Nations Thessalonica, on Sunday 2 August 2020. Believing that Jesus Christ will completely heal him and bless his career for the glory of His name, he took part in the prayer line with the problem of a torn meniscus. Two weeks ago, he was injured during a game and the pain was so severe that he was rushed to the hospital. The medical exams which took place on the same day showed that there was knee damage and the doctors scheduled him for surgery the following week. He was also advised to use crutches to walk so that he does not burden his injured leg and make it worse. The pain was intense and his knee was swollen, therefore, he was unable to walk freely, bend his knee or make the slightest movement. It had to be constantly still and stretched, so that it would not hurt. Because of the pain, he was unable to step on his leg, make any quick movements or climb stairs. He felt very restricted and moving from one place to another was a struggle for him.
After this serious injury at the beginning of his career, Mr. Makia decided to come to the SCOAN Thessalonica and with faith placed his problem in the capable hands of Jesus Christ. The man of God Harry prayed for him at the prayer line, so that any injury in his knee could be repaired! Instantaneously, he felt relief from the pain! In fact, when trying his knee, he found out that he had regained all lost functions! Now he can bend it, walk without using crutches, run and do what he could not do before!
As the healing hand of God working on him was evident, the man of God Harry saw the spiritual need of Mr. Makia and gave him the following personal message: “Live the rest of your life for the glory of God! The work you do has many challenges because there are so many young people around you… so many temptations… with cell phones, looking at photos… all these things that are not good for you! So, stay away from what does not glorify Jesus Christ, stay away from them. Deal only with football and training. Because you are young and this bad influence can ruin your career!”.
Confirming the words of the man of God, Mr. Makia said that in his line of work he faces many challenges, because footballers like clubs, worldly music, watching and sharing pornographic material on their cell phones. As a member of the team, he was forced to spend many hours of his time every day with these worldly young people, and that is why he was negatively influenced in the past by participating and following their example. Now happy and blessed, Mr. Makia promised to live for the glory of God, making the Word of God the standard for his life!
PROPHECY REVEALS THE REASON WHY THE ANGELS OF GOD COULD NOT DELIVER HIS BLESSINGS
God who is Omniscient not only knows what we are facing and how our problems can be solved but He also reveals things to us and prevents us from making the wrong decisions that have negative results in our lives. Mr. Ojimma Uche from Germany received such a divine revelation on Sunday 2 August 2020 when the man of God Harry stood before him in the prayer line and asked him who the woman in the picture he was holding was. He replied she was his wife. Then he gave him the following prophetic word: “There is quarrelling between you, disagreements, fighting. This quarrelling is not normal. There is a supernatural blessing from God; He wants to give to you and your family. I am seeing God’s angels carrying this package of blessing. They come and they want to give it to you. But when the angels see you and your wife quarrel for no reason, they can’t deliver this package. They can’t give you the blessing and the breakthrough you are looking for. This quarrelling is so bad that is delaying God’s blessing for you and your family! Also, be careful with the issue of land property. Houses, land, possessions…
It is not every land, every house for you. When you want to take something that is not for you, then there is going to be a problem everywhere. Because I am seeing a group of people, they are not happy because of this issue-houses, land, property. You must learn to trust God and when you go back home pray with your wife. She is a good woman but when anger comes, quarrelling starts; no matter what you try to do or say to stop it, is in vain. We must throw satan out of the family. As I am praying for her now, the Holy Spirit is touching her anywhere she is”. Next, the man of God prayed in the name of Jesus Christ and rebuked every negative power in Mr. Uche’s life delivering him at once!
Mr. Uche, astonished by the accuracy of the prophetic word he received, confirmed that the prophecy was completely true. As he explained, ever since he got married to his wife they always quarrelled. Most of the time they argued about unimportant things, and they did not speak to each other for days. The constant fighting and his wife’s anger kept the joy and the peace out of their home. Instead, they brought sadness in their lives. He was actually thinking of getting a divorce. When they realised that their situation was not normal, they started looking for a solution that ultimately led them to the prayer line. Regarding the assets issue, he mentioned that he was planning to buy a piece of land in his home country Nigeria after his visit to the SCOAN Thessalonica. Another buyer was also interested in purchasing that piece of land, and he had already paid half of the amount to the owner. So, the owner would have to cancel the deal with the original buyer, as long as Mr. Uche was willing to pay the full amount for the land – a thing that he was planning to do if God had not interfered through the prophecy to stop him from buying a piece of land that was not intended for him! Moreover, referring to the people that were not happy with him, as mentioned in the prophetic word, he said that due to the blessings of God in his life, indeed, there were people who were not happy with him.
Thanking God for exposing the root cause of his problems, he said that he believes that the prophetic word he received brought deliverance and breakthrough in his life! He promised to the Provider of his blessings that he and his household will serve the Lord for the rest of their lives!
SHE CAME LIMPING AND LEFT WALKING
Ms. Joyce Kisaka Ophoro, originally from Tanzania and now living in Germany, arrived on Sunday 2 August 2020 to the SCOAN Thessalonica, limping and, literally, crying in pain, in order to take part in the prayer line. She made this whole trip, having absolute certainty that she would not return back to the same situation!
For three months now, Ms. Ophoro noticed that her right hand was swelling and her fingers were becoming immobilized, to the point where she could not move, lift, write, hold or do anything with it. Also, during the same period, she began coughing to the extent that she was unable to even laugh. Every time she coughed, she felt pain in all her joints, legs and waist. In addition, due to the coughing and pain, she was unable to sleep peacefully during the night. She had to get up and make something hot to soften her cough. If she did not do this for two nights, the cough would return much worse than before. Her daily life was also affected. She could not do her job as a journalist, she was unable to even hold the microphone. Also, she could not cope with her daily life as a mother or a housewife. She could not clean her house and, in fact, her daughter had to help her get dressed or put on shoes. She was constantly lying down, as she had difficulty in every movement she made – she had difficulty walking, even just sitting.
During the prayer, the Spirit of God located her and healed her. As the man of God prayed for her, she was astonished to see the healing power of Jesus Christ acting on her body.
When she realized that she had received her miracle, she began to do everything she could not do before – to walk and move her hand painlessly. Then, the man of God Harry gave her the following prophetic word hitting the root of all evil: “What is happening to you is a demonic attack. Strange things happen every time you sleep. Men force you to make love with them in your dream. That’s where your problems started. I give you the root of all your problems. Every seed, no matter how small, bears fruit. I reveal to you the seed where it all began. All the diseases for which you complain are the fruits of this seed. Different people fed you in the dream. Even inside your body, you feel like something is moving from here to there and everywhere… And this has ruined your life: you cannot work, you cannot do anything, stagnation is everywhere. But, today is the day of your deliverance and your breakthrough, in the name of Jesus Christ! Live the rest of your life for the glory of God!”.
Ms. Ophoro later confirmed that this was indeed the case in her life. First began the demonic attacks through her dreams, as the Holy Spirit brought to light through the prophecy of the man of God. Then her health problems started and, indeed, she felt like something was moving inside her body. In fact, that morning when she got up to get ready to visit the church, it was impossible to move, more than ever. She asked the receptionist at the hotel where she was staying to help her get to the taxi that was waiting for her, as she was unable to walk alone. When the man of God touched her, she felt an indescribable sensation all over her body. Her hand froze, and when the man of God asked her to touch it, it was as if it had been cut with a knife… until she began to lift it and move it without pain! Also, the cough stopped at that moment!
Immediately, she started walking alone without pain and she excitedly thanked and glorified God! Liberated and now healthy, she believes that the prophetic word she received is the breakthrough for her new life! Finally, she promised to walk with God and make the Word of God the foundation for the rest of her life!
The situation you are in as a child of God is not meant to destroy you or to kill you, but to increase you, to strengthen you and to take you one step closer to God!
In the following photos, we can see the power of God moving mightily, changing every situation on its way. Whoever received a touch from God in faith had no choice but to confirm that the power of God, mentioned in the Word of God, is undoubtedly true and it is still working today!
