Deep immersion in the love of the heavenly Father was the focus of the "Immersion in the Love of the Father" conference held by the Kiev Jewish Messianic Congregation on May 2-3, 2017. More than four thousand people from over 20 countries ranging from Finland and the United States to Russia and Israel, responded to the call to refresh their personal relationship with God and lose themselves in Him.
Speakers shared their personal experiences of immersion in His love and full and complete trust in God including:
- HEIDI BAKER (USA/Mozambique), Head of International Ministry IRIS GLOBAL, world-famous missionary, preacher and Doctor of Theology.
- JOHN CHISHOLM (USA), Vice-President of the International Evangelical Missionary Ministry IHOPKC, Director of the Russian Department and the Israeli Department of IHOPKC.
- BORIS GRISENKO (Ukraine), Senior Rabbi of the Kiev Jewish Messianic Congregation.
There were also special guests including:
- SULEMAN MANZOOR (Pakistan), international evangelist and Founder of RAPHA Mission.
- HENRY MADAVA (Ukraine), Senior Pastor of Victory Christian churches, Founder of Christ for all Cities International Ministry.
Musicians from IHOPKC, Justin Rizzo and Fady Gergis, as well as Jewish worship teams helped to usher in an atmosphere of God's joy, praise and deep worship.
“We tried to submit the conference program to the move of the Holy Spirit as much as possible. If God’s presence has come and people in the room are worshiping or praying in silence, then the sermon will wait. If God wants the speaker to pray for everyone, we postpone the break”, the organizers of the event shared. “Because the most valuable and important element in this whole conference was that every guest should experience intimacy with God and His heart, for His will and sovereign action be open. And our task in this is to be as sensitive to the Holy Spirit as possible and not to interfere with Him.”
Amazing things happened on May 2-3! People spontaneously started praising Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) together, singing to Him without musical support and simply chanting His name. Countless people experienced a deep contrition of heart, conviction or, conversely, comfort from God.
During the conference thousands of miracles of inner freedom, acts of forgiveness and restoration, physical healings and even resurrection happened!
A lot of guests of the conference, for the first time in their lives, experienced God as their own Father and understood that He loved them with unconditional love and is not disappointed with His children.
BORIS GRISENKO shared his understanding of how God moved at this time, "Truly to accept God's love means to surrender to it. To be open to the work of His love and allow this love to break our hearts. Because a broken heart is the heart of God's winner. God teaches us to love here. This incredible love of the Father reveals a new level of faith in us. And this faith will continue to work strongly in us, and through us, for the glory of our Father.”
HEIDI BAKER spoke about the depth of our dedication to God; about how to remain obedient to the Father's will even when you do not understand or when terrible things happen. She also shared the revelation from God that changed her life.
"God is doing something today! The veil falls from the eyes! I received a revelation about God's heart to Israel. It happened at one of the big gatherings. God told me to hide behind the curtain. People were much worried, they called me to go out and preach, but the Lord said: "Stay there, behind the curtain, hide, cry out to Me and pray!" I was weeping for about 12 hours! And God gave me a vision that changed my life forever! He said: "Thank you for bringing the orphans home". For 22 years of our ministry, we were bringing home children who were dying in garbage piles and ditches ... And I saw the grateful heart of the Father. Then He showed me my two own children - Elisha and Kristalina. And He asked me, "How would you feel if your own children would not know Me?" I said, "I would do my best! I would even die, if only they knew You!" And then I heard very clearly, "This is exactly what I feel for my Jewish children!" Then I was undone! I received a revelation of the heart of God to the children of Israel! And I want you to receive the revelation of His heart today.”
The most important role of Israel in God's plan and the eternal love of the Father for His Jewish children was also emphasized by John Chisholm. Boris Grisenko mentioned a clear correlation between our attitude towards the Jewish people and the ability to accept the love of the God of Israel.
"We see that the hearts of our guests are filled with the Holy Spirit in a new way and we believe that everything that happened here will bring a lot of good fruit in thousands of lives and ministries throughout the world!”, shared the organizers.
The theme of Immersion in Love of the Father continued into the KJMC Prayer Retreat held in Pushcha-Voditsa that immediately followed the conference.
