Tonight’s Street Preaching

So tonight the anointing came down.

Most of the time when I preach with the microphone people have one of four reactions as they walk past:
1. they laugh
2. they roll their eyes
3. they scream out blasphemy or
3. they yell at me to shut the f*#k up

Ha, good times.

(Actually to add another element to the mix is the Black Magician that seemingly only comes out when I am there. In his black clothes, make up and top hat he stands across from where we preach and moves his hands and legs around constantly in snake-like movements, as if he is casting spells on us. If you go close to him you realize that he is mocking us and repeats everything we say. He does that for hours – he doesn’t stop).

So anyway tonight the second time I preached the anointing came down. When the anointing of the Spirit falls everything changes. My preaching changes, it becomes powerful and the words flow easily. Under the anointing I could preach for hours, I don’t want to stop. I feel Jesus there with me SO real. I feel He is pleased with me.

But the BIG difference is that the people’s reactions change. Instead of walking past ridiculing and mocking, they stop walking. I mean they literally stop dead. One man stopped tonight in the middle of climbing the steps up to the station. The police officers stopped dead as they were questioning a drunk and listened. Crowds of people just stop and stare and listen. It’s like they are rooted to the spot.

So I kept on preaching as long as I could. Then when I finished the Holy Spirit told me to go straight to that man who was still stopped mid-way on the steps.

So I did. He saw me coming over to him, but he still couldn’t move. We started talking and he said :
“I was walking past but I had to stop. You captured me.”
That’s the Holy Spirit – hallelujah to the Lamb!

He was under conviction for his sin but as he spoke it was obvious that he was utterly amazed at what was happening.
“I’ve never done this before,” he said his eyes wide in surprise at himself. God bless him.

Anyway I just wanted to share 3 points with you
1. that under the anointing ANYTHING is possible.
2. that God will always honour the preaching of His Word and
3. that if you are seeking God’s presence in greater measure – look no further than the streets of your nearest city.

“For since in the wisdom of God the world by its wisdom did not know God, God was pleased to save those who believe by the foolishness of preaching.” 1 Corinthians 1:21

  1. God Bless you Bel. I knew something tangible would happen tonight. It’s been unseasonably warm weather this week and I felt that it would tranfer to the spiritual atmosphere. Praise God and bless you. You actually step out and ‘do’, instead of just hearing. xo

  2. Praise God, what a wonderful night. What a difference when God’s Spirit falls.

  3. Belinda, I know that this post is about a year and a half old, but I was wondering how often you have had this same experience since then when preaching? I have had this happen before as well and it is absolutely amazing and I wish it would be like that every time. I have yet to figure out what makes the difference or if it is just a sovereign move of God.

    • Hi Eirene! I’ve only had this tangible anointing experience happen two or maybe three times. I don’t know why either. It seems that I haven’t prayed more beforehand or done anything differently. It simply must be a sovereign move of God I am guessing. I do wish it would be like that every time too! It would certainly be easier. But perhaps if it was we would become complacent – I don’t know! God knows I guess! It certainly is an adventure. God bless you and yourministry Eirene :0)

I would love to hear your thoughts...
