We want to praise the Lord for the privilege we had this last June to hold the School of Christ International (SOC) School in Denham Springs, LA.
We were hosted by Brother Jerry Arnold and his Church, Lighthouse Pentecostal Church, who have been long time supporters of the SOC and have facilities perfectly prepared to hold SOC Schools. I want to thank Brother Jerry for not only his continued support for the SOC Missions Ministry, but also his many years of traveling with Brother Clendennen and taking up the vision of “Restoring the Message of Pentecost”.
The Lord truly blessed this Class with brothers and sisters who came with a hunger and desire for more of God and His Word! From the prayer times to the classes and fellowship, the Lord poured out His Spirit and confirmed that we were here for such a time as this. I believe the overriding theme of this Class was this: God is preparing a Vessel of the Remnant for the end-time Revival that He wants to pour out upon the earth. In the middle of an age of great complacency and apathy on the part of the church, and great darkness in the world, it is not only encouraging but it is heart-stirring to know that God has chosen those few from the many called who are willing to do what it takes to be the “Vessel of the Lord”.
We had the opportunity to interview each of our graduates, and allowed them to share in the SOC Report what God did for them through the SOC. One student testified to having been seeking the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and after one of the afternoon classes, God gloriously filled her with the Holy Ghost. Another student shared how she felt the Lord performing a surgery on her from day one and by the final day the surgery was complete with God filling her with His unspeakable Peace.
These are just a few of the testimonies, as we also had testimonies of God dealing with the lives and changing the hearts, conforming and making them into the purpose for which they were born! Anyone who has been through the School can testify to the fact that there truly is a “before and after” of the SOC. You will never be the same after going through the lessons and discipline. You will either become the instrument for the eternal purpose or walk away from all that God is calling you to do, but you will for sure never be the same again.
There is a work to be done in this final hour of the Church, and we have not only witnessed but we are thankful to the Lord in being a part of this great Missions Ministry of the SOC that the Lord is using in the preparation of His laborers for the end-time Harvest. God is moving forward in the preparation of the Bride of Christ, and here at the SOC we are determined to move forward with Him. To God Be The Glory!
