Weekend at Hillsong church
I went to three meetings over the weekend at Hillsong church.
This is the notes from the message of Kevin Brett at Hillsong church Saturday night:
Time to roll up your sleeves
1. Don't underestimate how powerful your testimony can be.
2. You need to get a revelation that the kingdom requires your involvement.
He gave a few ideas on how to invite people to church, like combined garage sale, welcoming letter to the people that are new to the neighbourhood, invite neighbours to your favourite restaurant, have a backyard party, card dropping at mailboxes while walking dogs,etc.
3. Understand that this gospel will be preached in all the world, then the end will come.
It was a very evangelical message to me, but interestingly there was no one responded at the altar call. Last Sunday night meeting it was said to have 220 people responded at the altar call. It seems that the youth is really getting the evangelical annointing. It reminds me of a vision that I saw for Phil Dooley the week before while he was preaching, that he was to gather all the empty vessels, empty jars from all the neighbourhood and bring them into the house, and God will fill them up.
Brian Houston preached all the other time. His message is "Carrying the Name" (see Jason's notes)He said the focus of the church at the moment is 2000 salvations. One thing that got me thinking is he said that his biggest testimony is not how well he preached, but after 30 years of ministry, he's still here!
My kids were a bit disappointed, as they've been really stirred up with extremely high expectation by the encouragements and ads from previous services about this super slide they're gonna have on Sunday night, and even though I was sick, they nagged and dragged me to the Sunday night church, and just about the time they got to go on the super slide, it started raining, and the slide thing was then canceled.
