In a mission to save the lost; empower believers; set them free; and send them forth in their calling, Arise Ministries has partnered with various evangelists with the intent to organize power-packed conferences in order to achieve this vision.
With each conference, God is not only blessing the efforts of His servants, but also pouring out His spirit and moving in miraculous ways. Men and women of different ages, cultures, and backgrounds have come with expectation, ready for God to move. And it’s this spirit of expectation that paves the way for God to come and have His way.
The third such conference organized was Locked N Loaded, a western themed service with evangelists Angela Stress, Jessyca Hayes, Matt McCauley, and Kim Eidel as the speakers. Also featured at this service was emerging prophetic artist Caleigh Ball, who also provided the interpretation behind the painting.
A mighty move of God took place at this event, with all experiencing the powerful presence of the Holy Spirit. Each aspect of the conference worked in tandem, ushering in the Spirit of God. Attendees walked away forever changed after experiencing healings, breakthroughs, and deliverances.
Restorations and sanctifications took place; one soul was saved and set free as the power of God moved throughout the place. Others had their callings identified.
God truly did an amazing work in this conference, and the attendees are the proof of this. Gratefulness is expressed to the speakers of the event. Each was obedient to God, arriving prepared and open to His leading. And because of this, God worked through them and their message brought the fire of God to the sanctuary.
Jessyca Hayes opened the event with a message on guts and glory, and walking in the fullness of God.
Following her was Angela Stress. Stress brought a message on setting aside religion and religious practices. She spoke of letting God set you on fire, tending to the flames, and not letting anything stand in your way.
Next, attendees heard from Kim Eidel. She spoke on how, as a new creation, we are programmed with God’s DNA. And as such, we have the ability to walk in our heavenly inheritance here on the earth. Also mentioned was the fact that we are His ambassadors — His agents — here to offer the lost and struggling the answer.
Eidel taught on the keys of the kingdom, giving each person an antique, bronze skeleton key as a representation of the aforementioned keys.
Closing the service was Matt McCauley, who was said to have a message that reflected each sermon, nicely bringing the service to a close.
McCauley operated in the gift of knowledge, giving words to certain individuals, leading to an amazing altar service.
When the preaching concluded and the worship was over, God’s spirit didn’t leave. He continued to dwell in the hearts of the people who walked away changed for His glory.
Thanks to the amazing speakers who came prepared for a move of God and were obedient to His leading, hearts were captured and souls were saved.
Before leaving, Eidel encouraged all to take what they received in the services and spread it onto the streets.
“We need to be locked and loaded with His Word of who we are in Christ Jesus, and taking that out to the world.”
