I believe that this small group I am training right now, are going to take this message much further than any large evangelistic meeting – which I will do in time. But I wanted a small group of Christians with me that would have a fresh appreciation of being liberated from the tradition of men! I also need Swahili speakers to support me once I start the big meetings.
I’ve wondered why God chose this group to be blessed with deeper understanding of His word. We know that Pastor Benjamin has stated that it was after asking God for a sign that led him to Mountain Refuge Ministries (MRM)and Karen’s videos on the sanctuary.
Here’s the rest of the story: Pastor Benjamin and his parishioners would gather at the chapel in the evening, one night each week, and pray all night and into the following day. I asked him what night and for how long had they kept up this practice. He said they met every Friday evening before sundown and they shut the doors and prayed all night and into the next day for 2 years!!
I said, “So you guys have been keeping the Sabbath….” We haven’t studied anything on the Sabbath issue yet. I could tell by Pastor Benjamin’s response that he hadn’t thought of it like that before. These people are Sabbath keepers and they don’t even know it yet!! That’s why they are being singled out by God. That’s why God has me here!
