Dr. Murdock has just flown in to Durban, South Africa,
>> 10 Million people
>> about 400 miles from the 50 Million people city of
Johannesburg, South Africa
>> one hour flight
The church Dr. Murdock spoke at, where about 50 Pastors were in attendance, is headed by Bishop Basel Tryon
>> An very unusual, very remarkable man
>> He has very remarkable prophetic giftings
>> He has a strong “pull” on the prosperity message
>> And he has a hatred for the poverty of Africa
>> He (Bishop Tryon) talked about the wealth inherent to Africa, all of the gold and diamonds embedded in the land itself.
>> And the “grab everything and go” mentality–as opposed to the “sowing and reaping” mindset has led to poverty-stricken results for much of Africa.
Dr. Murdock came so close to canceling this last stop in Africa [for this trip], but didn’t realize the importance that they (South Africa) had placed on it.
He was just so homesick, and could hardly take it any more.
In all honesty, there’s a lot of discomfort travel
[especially when it’s work-related, and not leisure…!]
Dr. Murdock loves the hospitality he’s received, namely on this trip.
This area [Durban] is the where the Zulu tribe is,
and there’s 9 official languages in this region as well.
There was a remarkable anointing there:
Dr. Murdock says he’s never walked into an atmosphere with this same anointing, this palpable “glory”.
It was very…disciplined.
All of the people looked to the Bishop as a spiritual father.
They all referenced him as “Dad”.
Dr. Murdock has never heard singing, or seen worship, and dancing–not on that scale.
Not “sensual” dancing, but the most remarkable, graceful dancing.
Dr. Murdock wants to be a “professional” learner.
He tells everybody that’s what he does for a living:
“I’m a professional learner.” 🙂
You really have to be open to things unlike yourself.
Discomfort shouldn’t be a lifestyle, but it should be a seed to sow.
To taste, to see, to access a new anointing.
A new way of doing things.
A new way of viewing things.
Billy Graham’s book about his real persuasion
that there were humans on other planets.
We have a need for “new”.
At this church in Durban, there was an unexplainable level of this unique, new anointing.
Dr. Murdock says he was not only comfortable with it, but he didn’t want to leave it.
It was a way of worship….
They had a choir, and then 30-40 young dancers…
They worshipped for a solid hour, hour and a half.
What arrested Dr. Murdock’s attention was the *unity*.
He’d never seen such unity in his lifetime.
All their eyes were closed.
They all smiled when they were rejoicing.
It was unlike anything he’d ever seen.
There are many anointing and movements of God.
Revelation 4:11 (KJV) – Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
Everything was created for God’s pleasure.
God really likes change.
Right at the beginning of Genesis, God first “created”, and then the Holy Spirit’s self-description: “He moved…”
It would be horrible to live on the earth, and only taste water, or only taste an egg.
Yet, many times in the spirit world, we limit our experience to only what we’re familiar with.
I don’t want to be that limited at any level of my life.
Discomfort at first?
Yes, because you’re evaluating, you’re looking at the different kind of music.
But *joy* will tell you a lot, when it’s present.
Joy is an exclamation on what’s right & wrong.
God has arranged us to feel a heaviness in our spirit when something is wrong.
And to feel a freedom in our spirit when something is right.
Right and wrong produce very different emotions.
It was 3 of the most glorious days of Dr. Murdock’s life–in the realm of seeing God move in a different way.
