The first lecture was delivered by Pastor Faith with the passage in John 4:24. The spiritual world is very vast and unlimited. It is possible to become lost or deceived by other spirits. Thus it is important that our focus is on loving God, loving our neighbors, and obedience to the word of God so that we can be protected.
The second lecture was delivered by Pastor Zechariah with the passage focus on Romans 8:16-26. The lecture spoke about seeking the Spirit's guidance so that we can live fruitful lives. Though we may not know the spiritual meaning or recognize the Holy Spirit's nudges, but God is always together with us and speaking to us with groans. Often we forget the eternal spiritual world and focus on the physical and we become dull to the Spirit.
Elim Boliva members who were visiting the Center led the praise. Their worship opened the blessings of the heaven, and led people to deeper prayer.
