You may find this hard to believe, but last night I visited The Glory Barn in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. With permission from the leader, David Lapp, I took a few pictures while I was there.
The Glory Barn is led by Amish people in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, who long for the fire of God more than the traditions of men. They meet on Thursday evenings at 5 or 5:30PM for a pot luck dinner and their mid-week meeting begins at 7PM. The guest speaker, Henry Gruver, asked the Amish and “Englishers” (the meeting held about half and half in attendance) a question. “What is it that you want God to multiply tonight? What do you want from God?””Fire!” someone called out.
“Fire!” the Amish leader called out in agreement.
Who would have thought the Amish were interseted in the fire of God? Now you can unfollow me if you want to, but I want the fire, too! These precious Amish brothers and sisters are crying out for the SAME FIRE that William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army, called out for in the late 1800’s in England. Booth wrote:
It’s fire we want, it’s fire we need
Send the fire.
This fire will meet our every need!
Send the fire today!
Well, I’ll write more on William Booth another time. The truth is, there are people who are hungry for the fire and glory of God and people who really don’t want to move on with God. Most of the time these folks are afraid of what people think. I’ll tell you whose opinion to fear. FEAR GOD’s OPINION. We must humble ourselves–go low, my Brother and Sister, go low. Bow low before the Lord our God our Maker, our Redeemer. It is only through the blood of Jesus that we can withstand the glory.
Brother Henry Gruver says that when the glory of God comes, whatever is inside of you will multiply. We don’t want our sin of pride, strife, jealousy, or anger to multiply do we? Then we must GO LOW. That is why it is only through the blood of Jesus that we will be able to go to heaven–where the God of ALL GLORY reigns forever.
Henry Gruver is a father in the Lord and a prayer walker to the nations. I don’t
want to post his sermon here, but I have it in my possession and if you would like to listen to last night’s message from the Glory Barn, I’ll send you a link. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org The glory of God is precious and I don’t want to exploit His message or his Amish family.
But I am thinking about you, my friend. So far, you have found the cross of Jesus valuable and decided to follow this blog. I don’t want you to miss out on this important message! Email me.
