Profoundly, plain and simple, many people celebrated the ending of 2010 and welcomed 2011 their own way. . . With three locations: (Dallas, Texas) North Dallas, Fort Worth and Denver, The Potter's House is all the way live! Last night was outstanding. With chilling temperatures in the low 30's hungry people still made their way to The Potter's House to celebrate the coming of the New Year, to feed on the Word of God.
Matthew 4:4 (New International Version, ©2010)
4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’[a]”
With a jam packed diverse audience, people from all ages and walks of life could be seen worshiping, praising and thanking God! The energetic, jubilant mass choir filled the sanctuary with "joyful" songs that relaxed, inspired. Those songs comforted worried minds and stress-out souls.
Bishop Jakes, announced that 2011 will be the year of harvest and wisdom. In other words, "Wisdom proceeds harvest, seek wisdom and the other things will come". The night was filled with intense prayer. Bishop Jakes specifically prayed for business success, career promotions, improved health/healing and family/marriage relations.
During Watch night 2010, Pastor Cheryl Brady (Previously led The River Church located in Durham, NC) who joined the Potter's House summer 2010 blessed many people in North Dallas. Pastor Brady delivered a power-packed message that upheld the Word of God in a mighty way! You may stream live at http://tphnorthdallas.org/streaming.html
Overall, The Potter's house is indeed a change agent: saving souls and changing lives nationally and internationally. Spirit-filled The Potter's House saves, delivers and equips people to live abundant lives according to the Word of God.
Some elected to stay home or gather with family, some tuned in online to view The Potter's House Night Watch service online, others danced in the New Year to the top 40 hits at a local bar or club, others slept in as 2011 ticked in. As the New Year got closer, Bishop Jakes reminded attendees that "some people just did not live to see 2011, We are just so thankful to just be here!". (Bishop TD Jakes: 12/31/2010).
Likewise, the atmosphere at 6777 Kiest Blvd. in Dallas was distinctly different from that at any local bar. You may stream live at http://www.thepottershouse.org/Multimedi
Whether a first-time visitor or long-time member, there was more than enough friendly fellowship to go around. No matter what happened in 2010, faith and hope for an abundant future resonated at The Potter's House on December 31, 2010.
