Divine Appointment! (March 2013 Newsletter)

The Lord moved Powerfully in the month of March! This past month the Lord has begun to put a new hunger in my heart and has really been making me think about His call on my life. I’ve been realizing more and more how out of touch I really am with all that He has and He is causing me to earnestly desire to be in touch with His heart: for the lost, for His people, and more. I have been realizing my need for meekness and humility more and more. He is Good! He loves to make us realize how dependent we truly are on Him. I am pressing in for breakthrough in these areas in my heart: to know Jesus more, His heart and emotions and to act in agreement with what He desires in me! Join me in this pursuit to be more and more like Christ!!! In this newsletter I will share about: Divine Appointments! The Tour! and Supernatural Ministry Class Pt. 2!

Worship and ministry during the Ministry Set! :)

Divine Appointments!

One of the Amazing experiences that I had in the month of March took place after leaving my favorite fast food, Chipotle! I had just recently bought a new iPhone. I put the phone on the roof of my car as I was putting the leftovers in my car and then I left to head over to the Burn Service at the Prayer Furnace Events Center. On my way I realized that I did not have the iPhone and then was struck with the fact that I had left it on the roof of my car when I left Chipotle!!! I was glad that I had an Otter Box to protect it and hoped that it had not fallen into the road. I pulled into Steak and Shake hoping to see that the phone was still on the roof!! I pulled into a parking spot next to a jeep, came out of my car and when I looked there was my cell phone still on the roof!! I had been praying since I found out that it was on the roof and rejoiced loudly when I saw it there; laughing, thanking God and thinking “This will make a fun story.” As I was pulling out, a young guy in the driver’s seat of the jeep asked called to get my attention and I when I noticed him I stopped the car and rolled down the window to hear what He had to say. I did not realize that there was anyone in the jeep and also realized how funny I would have looked to those guys in the jeep as I talked with God whom they could not see and laughed when I got the iPhone from my roof. He asked me if I had been driving with my phone on the car and I affirmed that I had with a rejoicing that it had not fallen off.

I began driving away but realized that this was a divine appointment and that I had an opportunity to speak to them and share the Gospel. I parked somewhere and walked over to them. I introduced myself to them and began talking. At one point I received a word of knowledge for the neck area that God wanted to heal! I asked the two guys in the driver and passenger seats if they needed healing in their neck and one of them did. As we prayed briefly the guy we were praying for felt heat in his neck and all of the pain and discomfort left!!! He looked at his friends and I with a smile of surprise on his face and testified that it had left and assured us that he wasn’t kidding but that all of the pain had left!!! I proceeded to ask them if they knew Jesus and then on to preach the Gospel! As I was preaching the Gospel more of their friends pulled in to the parking spot next to them. They caught their friends up on what the Lord had done so far and I finished preaching the Gospel. The guy that had been healed decided not to give his life to the Lord then. I explained further that giving his life to the Lord would be the best decision of his life not only for eternity but even here on earth. I explained that he would experience freedom. As the Lord led me I began to tell him that he would no longer need to take pills or medicines to go to sleep and that God would deliver him from nightmares! His friends then said to him, “Don’t you have trouble sleeping!?” We all knew that God was clearly speaking!!! The others, who were already believers, felt the need and desire to surrender their lives to the Lord in a greater way! So we prayed a prayer of surrender and deeper commitment to Jesus!!! One of them came to me as I was leaving and shared that he had just been praying to the Lord and feeling drawn to pursue God more!! God is Good!!!

Sozo 2 Class

Sozo is a Greek word used in the Bible often times when we read in English “saved” or “healed” etc. It means ‘to be saved, to be healed, and to be delivered.’ The point of this class is to teach and train students in the ministry of the Holy Spirit and especially to teach them how to steward this ministry! Already the first four or five classes that we have had have been amazing! God is moving! In this class and others that I have been teaching the Lord has had me teach on topics that I myself really needed! It has been a lot of work but the fruit has been refreshing! Praise the Lord!

People receiving prayer during our Ministry Night! It’s Tuesdays 6-8pm if you are ever in the area and want to receive prayer for Healing or prophetic ministry!

Closing

I look forward to all that the Lord is doing! I will be going to Puerto Rico this summer to minister down there and then on to Oklahoma for the Burn Wagon! The Ministry Night at the Prayer Furnace has been amazing! The sweetness of the Lord has constantly been moving on us! One night a lady’s ears were healed, she was having a hard time hearing and everything sounded as though she was under water. As she was receiving prayer one ear popped open and then the other did as they prayed more and she was then able to hear clearly!! One other fun thing that happened in the month of March is that I participated with my violin in the recording of a soaking CD! There will be some instrumental tracks on the CD and it will hopefully be released at Awaken the Dawn this year!It is exciting to step into the works that God has prepared for me! (Ephesians 2:10).

Recording Session

Worshipping during the Recording Session

Break Out of the Natural: Supernatural Living!

Teaching at Marked Conference

Last weekend I had the opportunity to teach a breakout session at The Marked Teen Conference! I titled the message “Supernatural Living: Can God Use Me?” I felt a sense of expectation and hunger in my heart the whole conference and I believe many young people were Marked and impacted in significant ways. In the beginning of the conference I got to pray for a girl that had had a bump on her stomach are for as long as she could remember. As a couple of us prayed for her the Lord began to release healing in her body. She was able to feel the bump flattening out!!! God is Good! As I mentioned I also had the opportunity to teach a break out session. I love speaking and sharing from the Word of God so I was really excited! The Lord had given me a message which to me did not seem to fit together so well and I was actually a little nervous, but I knew that the Lord would give me the necessary grace to communicate it when the time came. The Lord is Faithful and when I had to teach the breakout session Grace was all over the message! I could tell that many of the youth had been challenged and touched by God! Praise the Lord! Below is a link to the message, you can click on it to download the audio file of the message ☺
Heads up! I’ve also updated the Healing Testimonies!!!

Recorded Sermon!!!

I have been preaching and teaching my mom tells me since I was five. She told me of a time when I asked her about where something was in the Bible and began teaching my friends from that when I was real young. I remember beginning to teach more when I was in tenth grade at Christian meetings in school. Below you will find the first half of a message that I preached the last Sunday of April. The sermon was about living our lives for the eternal realm rather than for temporal things that pass. The title of this sermon is “Live for Eternity”

Also, I’ve added another page to my Blog called “Speaking” that you can check out! It is inbetween the “About Me” and “Support Me” pages

April 2012 Newsletter

April 2012 Newseletter

Loving Jesus
With Friends
Every Day

Great is the Lord, and greatly to be Praised! April was a great month in my experience. Many were healed and touched by God. I also got to preach at Victory Family Outreach Ministries in Woodbridge VA. The 21 days of prayer and fasting began and things have been happening in the Spirit. At the Fredericksburg Prayer Furnace we are praying all day and all night, seven days a week, for these 21 days of fasting. This has been such a fruitful experience and there is still a little over a week left. Well in this newsletter I will briefly inform you of what happened in the month of April and update you on what will be going on in the month of May. I will focus on: Healing, Preaching at VFOM, and 21 Days and Beyond.

Healing

In the month of April many were healed by the Lord. Friends of mine prayed for a deaf person and they began to hear. People’s joints, bones, shoulders, etc. were getting healed in services on the tour I participated in. I’ve posted some of the healings that I witnessed this month on my blog, sebastianangulo.com. This time I’ll share two testimonies of healings that I saw the Lord work towards the end of April. The 21st of April, on my way home from a friend’s wedding, with other friends in my car I saw my cell phone that was facing down dimly light up. When I looked at the phone I saw that I had just missed a call from my mom with whom I had been speaking with earlier in the day. I called my voicemail to see what she had left and though I could not understand the message very well I knew she wasn’t feeling well. I then received a text that better explained the situation. She was experiencing really strong pain in her chest and heart area. Being very alarmed I calmly asked before praying for her one-by-one if my brother, sister, or dad were home. None of them were, and I was at least an hour from home with friends that needed rides to their homes. It was then that I began to pray for her with no other option except that she would be healed. I prayed with a greater demand for healing than I can remember ever praying with. Sometimes I get a gift of faith when praying for the sick, this time there was no other option. She had to be healed. After having prayed for like 2 minutes I asked her how she was feeling. She informed me that the pain had decreased when I commanded it to decrease, yet it had returned to the same level of pain. I prayed again and commanded the pain to leave. This I did one or two more times, with less pain remaining each time until all that remained was the fading fear from the initial scare and no pain at all. We found out through research that the pain was probably connected to the acid reflux she had been experiencing rather than a heart attack. Nevertheless I had quite an experience that night and the Lord was glorified. He is Faithful and he healed my mom that night. Glory to God! Some days later I went to a Verizon store to ask them about some money they owed me :). A lady sat next to me and the Lord showed me that she had some pain in her lower back and specifically something wrong with her tailbone. She got up and walked somewhere in the store, and as I continued to wait to be attended she came back and sat down. After we talked for a little bit I asked her if she had pain in her lower and if I could pray for her. She let me pray for her. I prayed for her lower back and her tailbone. When I finished praying for her she immediately asked how I knew about her tailbone, stating that only her doctors and mom knew about it. I told her God revealed it to me and she was really blessed; soon after I was attended. God’s timing is perfect. Glory to God!

Preaching at VFOM

On the 29th of April I had the opportunity to preach at a church in Woodbridge, VA. It was a powerful time and the Lord was faithful to fill my mouth with His Word. I had pondered and prayed about the message for some weeks and though I knew what it was I didn’t feel right about using the notes I had written. I have preached many times without notes (most times actually) but I was a little troubled about actually having notes and feeling like I shouldn’t use those. I knew I could trust the Lord in this because He has always come through for me. The message was, “Live For Eternity.” I posted an article on the subject on my blog. It was powerful and many were greatly blessed by it. Praise God! I also was able to get a recording of the message and hope to put some of it online.

21 Days and Beyond

As I’ve shared we have been in a 21 day season of focused prayer and fasting here in Fredericksburg, for revival and awakening in Virginia and the nation. This time has been a real blessing and I am glad that we will begin to pray around the clock in the fall of this year when we start our Stand By Night internship at the Prayer Furnace. Coming up are the African American Life Rumble, Awaken the Dawn, and the Call Virginia, starting on May 22 and ending on May 27. If you have not registered already and desire to attend, register as soon as you can since as of right now seating is limited at the venue and already about 2000 people have registered. The conference was extended to Sunday the 27th of May and Reinhard Boonke will be preaching again that Sunday morning. You can register for Awaken the Dawn for free at www.awakenthedawn.net and for the Call Virginia for free at www.thecall.com/virginia

Closing

God is Good! He is Worthy of Praise all the time. We might as well start now because this is what His people will be doing for all of eternity. We will be praising Him. Continue to lift me up in your prayers in the Name of Jesus. Pray that God will open doors for His Word to be released in and through my life. If you have any prayer requests or comments feel free to email me at sangulo@theprayerfurnace.org. Blessings
