The Vision of Cathedral of Praise
“Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it.” Habakkuk 2:2
1. Cathedral of Praise will be a Healing Place.
We believe cancer and other life-threatening diseases will die when they enter our sanctuary doors. We declare addictions and bondages broken, and lives forever set free from darkness, all to the glory and honor of our God! (“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:18-19 NIV)
We have determined in our hearts to be extraordinary believers at Cathedral of Praise. There are too many ordinary churches today. We desire to be a New Testament church and to operate in the supernatural. At Cathedral of Praise God has raised up radical believers who trust God at His Word, creating Spirit inspired faith, resulting in supernatural miracles and glorious manifestations of the Holy Spirit. (“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:22-24 NIV)
(This journey began in January of 2014 when Sheila Nicholson was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic cancer and given 3-6 months to live. Satan’s plan was thwarted, however, as God raised up “winners and fighters” joining together in one heart and one purpose… “Connecting a hurting world with a healing Jesus!”
2. Walls of religion dying! Walls of purity, praise and promise arising!
God, strengthen our hands, body, soul and mind to complete this task. God will give us success!
“God rejoices when we manifest a faith that holds Him to His Word! (Smith Wigglesworth)
“Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord Almighty.” Zechariah 4:6.
3. We will prepare for the future, enduring every testing, being continually enlarged in His purpose by His grace!
While we cannot overcome without the Spirit of God, He has prepared us to overcome! In the end, it will not be Hell who will shake us. Rather, it is we, the body of Cathedral of Praise who will rattle the gates of Hell!
The war has been won, but the war is not ended. While we are ultimately citizens of Heaven, we have been called for this time, to walk upon the earth. For now, we must watch and war. The windows of Heaven are not opened through inactivity, but as we take steps of faith, obeying the Word of God and yielding to the Spirit moving in our lives.
“Steps of FAITH result in MIRACLES!”
“For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal, and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay. Habakkuk 2:3
