Bishop Roderick L. Hennings returns to West Angeles Church of God In Christ for Revival this week, from March 1-3.
Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. presented to us the opportunity for renewal and refreshment at West Angeles Church of God In Christ with a powerful revival titled “Order in the Court.” The guest pastor for the revival was Bishop Roderick L. Hennings of Zion Dominion Global Ministries in Rochester, NY, who began day one of the revival with an insightful look at Psalm 30:5 (KJV)–
For His anger endureth but a moment; in His favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
“The western mind looks at time as being linear – having a beginning and an ending,” began Bishop Hennings. “In fact, we’re the only people in the world who believe that time is linear.”
He went on to teach the congregation about the true meaning of the text, and that time is endless in God’s context.
“What time is it? No matter what time it is, joy cometh; Joy is always on the way…so even in the middle of your greatest pain, joy is on the way!”
Bishop Hennings also reminded the congregation of the power in giving God heart-felt, exuberant praise.
“You can be a quiet worshiper but you can’t be a quiet praiser…Joy is looking for you! Joy is coming! Give Him praise in your time!”
Highlights from Day 1 of the powerful, 3-day revival “Order in the Court” follow:
“He’s knocking with His Word” – Bishop Roderick L. Hennings
“The enemy can’t find you when God places you…When you’re in the right place – where God placed you – the enemy cannot find residence.”
“He pulled (Eve) out of her place. I don’t want to talk to anyone who can’t talk to me in my place!”
“Roles change when you get out of position.”
“When a man is not in place, things get out of order.”
“You learn how to love by being touched: not by being told.”
“A woman responds to touch.”
“Only one person can fit the place God has designed for you, and that’s you. Tell your neighbor, ‘I’m necessary.’”
“When you don’t know your assignment, you waste your time.” – Bishop Roderick L. Hennings
“When God has an assignment on your life…Thank God for every day you’re alone. That’s the time He’s developing you in the dark so he can present you in the light.”
“The danger of doing things God hasn’t called you to do will cause you to fight in battles, and then want God to back you up.”
“Know the difference between purpose and a proposal. When you have purpose, it’s the reason for your being; the reason that you’re here. But a proposal is something that you present, and you hope someone accepts it.”
“Purpose won’t let you die. Purpose won’t let you go through life precariously; hoping something will happen.”
“Lift your hands and say, ‘Lord, work on me!’”
“People make decisions based not on choice, but on what they value.”
“When you don’t know your assignment, you waste your time.”
“That ‘no’ can keep you on point. That ‘no’ can keep you on your assignment.”
“He’s not into exposing your processing plant. He’ll work on you privately, so He can promote you publicly.”
“Are you fitted for glory?” – Bishop Roderick L. Hennings
“Sometimes reminding yourself gives you balance.”
“God qualifies you by choosing you.”
“Even though you’re anointed to do what you do…there’s some stuff you still have to pray off of you.”
“If your prayer is promised-based, God moves quickly because you’re saying what He wants to hear.”
“You have to pray His Word! When you start praying His Word, you know you’re being fitted for glory. When you pray His Word, demons back up!”
“When you start praying the Word, the enemy has no room in your conversation.”
“Serving is not about recognition. He said, ‘Don’t get tired while doing the right thing.’”
“We’re in the last days…and all eyes are on the Christian church. Are you fitted for glory?”
