While reading this book, many times I felt the presence of the Holy Spirit and should have marked those passages. I almost read it in one sitting; I couldn't put it down. After reading this book, I discovered that Ellis's church was about an hour from where we live. My husband and I made the drive because I was curious to see if the Holy Spirit was really moving in his church the way he said it was. As soon as we walked in, we felt it. There was something very different here. I couldn't quell the feeling, however, that I would probably be disappointed because they would more than likely follow the ubiquitous preaching style of welcoming, announcements, 3-4 songs and then 20 minutes of preaching -- without letting the Holy Spirit lead anything. Boy, was I in for a surprise. From the start, there was Spirit-led singing and everything about the entire service was Spirit led. Pastor Ellis immediately had people sit up front if they needed healing. While he preached and prophesied and stood in front of people, one by one, they were healed and started crying and praising Jesus. Hallelujah! Many people were there from being healed in previous services and testified. I could tell Pastor Ellis didn't have a "prepared" sermon; he just followed the Spirit. How rare this whole experience was. I can personally testify that once you've been in the presence of Almighty God -- Creator of ALL things, things of this world will grow strangely dim. To strive to STAY in His Presence is very hard in this demonic world, but we must keep trying. There really is a peace that surpasses all understanding. One day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD! Hallelujah!
