In a culminating moment of spiritual fervour, the Watchman Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement (WCCRM) successfully concluded its highly anticipated December Retreat, fondly referred to as "Mount Horeb." The event, which took place over the past week, attracted participants from around the globe seeking spiritual renewal and guidance.
The welcome exhortation, titled "Restoration, Jubilation and Praise Determined," delivered by the General Superintendent (GS) of the WCCRM, set the tone for an inspiring retreat. Emphasizing the pivotal role of the Word and Spirit of God, the GS conveyed a powerful message to the jubilant attendees, highlighting that these elements serve as the Principal, Unfailing Executors of God's mind. He urged believers to recognize that their convictions shape their destiny, emphasizing, "It is what you believe that will determine what will happen to you," and asserting the individual's power in determining the presence of jubilation in their lives.
Continuing his teachings, the GS delivered a profound message titled "Faith, the Indispensable Hook." He cautioned the Church against assuming they serve God without truly knowing Him, urging believers to charge their hearts with the current of faith derived from the Word of God. This, he emphasized, is indispensable in fostering a genuine connection with the divine.
In a final address titled "Two Kingdoms Are At Work," the Man of God reiterated a fundamental spiritual truth. "When your heart is filled with faith, problems will no more be problems," he declared. However, he warned against becoming preoccupied with the affairs of this life, as such preoccupation hinders the Spirit of God from exerting its transformative influence.
The WCCRM December Retreat 2023 thus left its participants with not only a renewed sense of faith but also a profound understanding of the spiritual battle between two kingdoms - the kingdom of faith and divine influence, and the distractions of earthly affairs.
As the participants disperse, carrying the teachings of the General Superintendent with them, the echoes of "Restoration, Jubilation and Praise Determined" resonate in the hearts of those who attended, marking the conclusion of a spiritually enriching retreat at "Mount Horeb."
