The Holy Spirit teaches all things

Do you really believe that? Or are you like some who believe that you seek God’s counsel only for spiritual things, but consult …

Rev. Susanta Patro preached from Psalm 15. The theme of his message was ‘Why we need to share the Gospel?’ We are precious in the sight of God. We are the apple of His eye.

‘They saw no one but JESUS’ by Rev. Susanta Patro (27th January, 2019)

Rev. Susanta Patro preached from Matthew 17:1-8. The theme of his message was ‘They saw no one but JESUS’. This passage talks about the Transfiguration of Jesus Christ.

‘Walking in the Spirit’ by Rev. Songram Keshari Singh, (Revival Meeting), 26-01-19

Rev. Songram Keshari Singh preached in the evening Revival Meeting from the last book of the Bible, Revelation.

He never got out of touch from God. He did not let negativeness effect him at all as he had that sweet fellowship with the Holy Spirit. The Bible says, even …
