Ignite 2013 DAY 1

Posted on

I thank God for giving me the opportunity to be part of the Three-Day Every Nation Asia Campus Conference (though mostly are still Filipinos), Ignite 2013. I was able to attend the Ignite 2011, and it was fun, as usual. But this time, GOD revealed Himself in a different way “again”.

I was late for the First session because it started at 6PM but I went there at 6:45PM. I went there from school, so I finished all my classes before going there (hashtag: Know Your Priorities). The moment I entered Cuneta Astrodome, I was overwhelmed with the great number of crowd in front and beside me. I was informed that there were more than 9,600 people present during that time that would hear God’s Word. Different campuses from different nations worshiping and praising God is simply overwhelming.

From where I sit, these are the people beside me on the left.

On the first day of Ignite 2013, from what I could remember when I got there, seeing every arms raised when praising Him made me gaze at the crowd in awe. I could feel the excitement within me, and my thoughts running, “All of us will truly encounter God in a spectacular way during this three-day conference!” And I was right because God is truly amazing.

On this day of the conference, everyone was asked to kneel in accordance with the verse in Exodus 3:5 – “God replied, ‘Don’t come any closer. Take off your sandals – the ground where you are standing is holy.'” then the “Revelation Song” was played by the Music Team while we’re all kneeling. The feeling of being in His presence is so indescribable. As I closed my eyes, I imagined God seated on His throne while I’m in awe and in a humbled state, knowing His holiness that surpasses my wicked and sinful being.

I remembered these words (not the EXACT words) from Pastor Olajide Pariola (he talked about Joshua) that you being holy is not only about being in a state of holiness, but also we should remember that holiness can be seen through our actions. We are consecrated. Holiness is lived. It is who we are by faith.

Thank God He has given us our new identity (which I suddenly thought that it was and should really be our identity that’s found in Him): Holy and Righteous in His sight. Thank You, Jesus!
