Pastor Raison Thomas and the team were in Singapore during the Good Friday and Easter services, on invitation by City Revival Ministries. The praise and worship were led by three dynamic individuals – Lordson Antony, Jomon philip, and Junu Sachin. The Good Friday service focused on the melodious praise and worship, followed by a short power-packed sermon by Raison.
The next day, as usual, the service started with beautiful Praise and Worship. The Presence of God was awesome. Raison Thomas preached on Romans 1:16, 17
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ,[a] for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”[b]
The three major points of the message were:
- Gospel is meant for everyone
- Gospel is the power of God
- Gospel is the righteousness of God
1 Corinthians 2 And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony[a] of God. 2 For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. 3 I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. 4 And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human[b] wisdom, but in the demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
It was the Holy Spirit led service. People were slain under the power of the Holy Spirit. They looked like being drunk in Spirit. Even the meekest and reserved were shouting, and dancing under the joy of the Holy Spirit. It was an unforgetful experience. Praise God for the beautiful Good Friday and Easter services.
