"CLOSER ... What does it actually mean? It's not a "closer" as in the end of an act in a play or conference or event. ⚫️ It's about HIS SPIRIT being "closer" than we (often) realise. ⚫️It's about HIS POWER AND PRESENCE being "closer" than we (often) perceive. ⚫️ It's about HIS ANOINTING and GRACE being poured out upon every soul hungry for more. ⚫️ Our HIllsong Church has walked in a mandate and anointing for over 30 years now ... an anointing that has served and championed the cause of local churches everywhere around the world. As prophesied many many years ago -- "many have come and taken away pieces of the glory they've seen upon the house" ... (and because we've been generous with it) ... "the anointing upon the house has gone out around the world ... but you haven't seen anything yet (man) and woman of God!" ⚫️ So why would I draw attention to this? Why. Because that anointing and mandate is God-given. It's beyond individuals and personalities and gifting. It can't be manufactured or marketed. It can only be held with humility and stewarded accordingly. 🌺 OUR PRAYER for this soon and coming Hillsong Conference, is that we will do what we've always done: Create an environment conducive to that unique anointing. SO OUR PRAYER IS ... "COME HOLY SPIRIT. WE WAIT FOR YOU. INFUSE OUR HEARTS AND INFUSE THE ROOM WITH YOUR FELT PRESENCE, EMPOWERMENT, WISDOM AND JOY. AS WE GATHER STRENGTHEN US AS ONLY YOU CAN. AS WE GATHER FATHER, SPEAK YOUR CLARITY AND CLARION CALL INTO ALL OUR SPIRITS. MAY YOUR REVELATION WIND WORDS BLOW, BLOW, BLOW THROUGH THAT ROOM. MAY IT BE FELT, SEEN, WITNESSED. MAY LIVES AND CHURCHES RENEW THEIR STRENGTH. YOUR GLORY WE GIVE TO NO OTHER. THY KINGDOM COME. THY KINGDOM COME FATHER". #closer #hillsongconf" – Ps @BobbieHouston .
