Apostles Update

Dr Larverne
Dear Friends,

INTERNATIONAL SUNDAY LIVE BROADCAST
Pastor Nyasha Ziswa (Zimbabwe) shared passionately about ‘‘The Authority in the Spoken Word” foregrounding the teaching of our Father Apostle Ezekiel Guti that when we engage the Word of God it has the same authority as if Jesus was there with you. She gave testimony of how her father experienced complication post cancer treatment that doctors declared hopeless but as a family they engaged the Word and he was healed. She also testified of how she got COVID 19 and was tormented by the spirit of fear but overcame through confessing scriptures and saturating herself with the Word of God. Our healing, deliverance, provision is found in the Word so what are you saying to your situation? Speak the Word, but first you must have a good relationship with God characterised by obedience, then have faith, believe in the integrity of the Word. Finally, you declare the Word. Things beyond wisdom and repair is where God steps in if you invite His authority through His Word.

TEACHING: PART OF BABA & AMAI'S MESSAGE

2 Timothy 2:21 - "Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work."

You have to be a good person so they can enjoy the Jesus you are carrying. God will be angry when people no longer love God because of your character. That’s why I changed, I have changed 3 times. You have heard me, I spent one year praying create in me a clean heart.
Once you know what you need to change, you pray for grace to do the right thing and decide not to do the wrong thing anymore. The new generation, has knowledge but the life is not worked, and lack godliness. You have to grow - you have knowledge but you lack godliness. Your knowledge is wild not disciplined or trained. Your life doesn’t have godliness. Let us seek to have godliness and not just knowledge alone. TO BE CONTINUED.....God bless you.

We love you and are praying for you,
