Remembering the 9-11 attacks and how the Lord moved in Manhattan after that frightening event.
In an episode of Get Real with host Ron Cantor, pastor Ron Lewis, co-founder & senior minister of Every Nation Church in New York City, shares his experience during the 9-11 attack in the city. Right after the attack, Ron went to the site to extend his help to those in need. But after seeing the ruins of the Twin Towers, he heard God’s voice saying that He’s going to do something out of that event.
Author of Miracles In Manhattan
“I saw the smoke billowing up and something happened Ron that was a game-changer for me,” Ron said. “What turned from lamenting and slumber turned to hope at that moment when I heard these words: out of these ashes, I will build a great church.”
Together with Darryl Strawberry of Bethel Outreach Church in Tennessee, they responded to God’s calling. They started a church in one of the theatres in Manhattan and soon after, they’ve seen miracles happening over the city. Lives are being transformed, people are coming to Jesus, and revival is happening over New York City.
“That 9-11 event really was a turning point for the move of God in the city,” he highlighted. “Because what was then less than 1% grew to 3% and now I’ve heard it’s in 4% or even 5% believers in Manhattan.”
God’s light shines the brightest during the darkest moments. That’s what God did over New York City, He turned the ashes from the 9-11 attacks into something good. He is showing His glory over His people in this city!
“There is something about the intensity and the darkness of New York City. When something is really dark, the light shines even brighter… God was already there but all of a sudden, people’s lives are being dramatically changed and some incredible stories were happening.”
