Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate. Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach. For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

On February 20th, 2001, the Lord surprised us with a powerful visitation during our mid-week prayer meeting. Two of our sisters in the Lord, Lou Finch and Sandy Sasser, were among those especially blessed that night. According to their description of the event, it was as if Jesus had taken them on a trip in spirit as they lay on the floor under the power of God. When they came to themselves, both of them were amazed at what had happened, and both of them attempted to express what they had felt and seen on their journey with Jesus. Here is what Sister Lou had to say:
“Let me tell ya’ll something. You can leave this world. You can leave this world. I’m telling you. I think I went to sleep. If somebody didn’t get the holy Ghost [tonight], they’ve missed the greatest chance, they’ve ever had.
God has a peace we don’t even know......that we do not even know yet .....Amen.....Amen.... Amen.
John. John! You know one time you told me God had a present for me? I think He gave it to me. I think He gave it to me tonight. Ya’ll..... I know what the “rest” is.... I know what the “rest” is! Nothing else matters when you feel that. Nothing else matters. It goes all through your body and you can’t do anything about it......but rest. I mean you can’t do anything about it but rest. And God takes everything out of it. You don’t even have a thought.....you don’t have to. You do not have to. It’s rest. Your mind. Your spirit. Everything.....Rest. Praise God.
God is faithful and true to His word. He will do what He says He will do. He will give you Rest. He will give you Peace. He will give you the holy Ghost. He will do this. He will do this. He is.... He is real. He is alive. He is real. Amen. Amen. Amen Lord.
He is real. He is real. I’m telling ya’ll. He is real. He is real. We are not reading about Him. He’s real. Sarah and I were talking about that fairytale. You know, how you always wanted to live in one and meet that Prince on the white horse...all that stuff.....bogus ..... But it’s not, because we are going to do it! She said ... I’m going to be riding that white horse and that prince is going to be coming for us. This is not a fairytale. This is real. This is real.
And when He said, “God’s Business goes on”. We better jump in His business. This is God’s business. This is real stuff. This is history-making here. Not what is outside of these windows. This is history making in here. Amen Lord. Amen Lord.
I love being in God’s business. I love God’s business. You get over that flesh, you won’t be in anybody else’s business but what’s God’s business. Amen. Oh Lord, thank you.”
