I am going to share an experience with you. An experience that if I had not had it, I do not think I would have fully understood what an atmosphere changer really was. If you are not familiar with the term I am going to share a story with you that will make the idea clear.
Last year, I was invited to a friends house. She was having a gathering of her friends. This was something that they did monthly. Rotating whose house they gathered at. I wasn't sure what we were going to be doing. But I knew this friend as a woman of God and assumed that we would be having some sort of bible study. Little did I know I was in store for a whole lot more.
I arrived still unaware of what we were going to be doing. There was a lot of socializing. Other than the host, I didn't know anyone there. But everyone was nice, this was a good group of ladies. We shared a meal then we gathered back in the living room.
We were all getting comfortable, finding seats and three women walked in. When these ladies walked in my attention was drawn to them immediately. Not because of anything they said or did but because I 'felt' them when they entered the house. It's hard to explain but it was as if the air changed. The atmosphere of the house was already pleasant but when these ladies came in it was even better. My mood was even effected. The house became thick with His presence. And I immediately recognized it as the Holy Spirit. These women brought the presence of the Holy Spirit with them.
I looked around and it seemed like no one else noticed. I did not know who these women were but I seriously wanted to know. It turns out that these women were invited guests of honor. I later learned that these women were related, two sisters and their mother. One sister is a pastor, the other is a prophet and I believe their mother may've been a combination of both.
They prayed with us, prayed over some of us and the prophetess spoke words from the Lord to many of us there. It was amazing. This was my first experience with a prophet and she confirmed many things that God had already spoken to me. I am still amazed at how powerful these women were. They are 'atmosphere changers'. When they walked into the room, they did not need to be introduced, the power of God spoke for them.
I found out that these women are known in this area (Anderson SC) for their gifts and their singing. If anyone reading this knows who they are, tag them to this post. I would really like for them to know how they affected me. Since coming in contact with them, I often pray that I become an atmosphere changer. That I am able to carry that much of His spirit everywhere I go.
John 14:15-17 If you love me, keep my commandments. I will ask the Father to give you another Helper, to be with you always. He is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor recognizes him. But you recognize him, because he lives with you and will be in you.
1 Corinthians 3:16 16Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in your midst?
2 Timothy 1:14 14Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you-guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.
John 16:7-15 7But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. 8When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: 9about sin, because people do not believe in me; 10about righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; 11and about judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned. 12"I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. 15All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you."
