1 Peter 1:1  Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the elect sojourners of the Dispersion of Pontus, of Galatia, of Cappadocia, of Asia, and of Bithynia,

Elect, Chosen

What do you think that means?  Does it make sense in our personal...


Beginnings

Julie

Our God is always creating, always beginning, always doing new things with new people.  When things or people go awry, He starts again with someone else.  Seth, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, David, and many others...


Fire

Julie

Fire in the natural world is created when energy is released. In the spiritual world, the release of spiritual “energy” can also give the same result. In Christian circles we often talk about the “fire of God” – using the word to describe the feeling of His presence along with words like “glory”, “refining” “power” etc.



Catching The Thief?

Ross Monk

In this article, entitled “Catching The Thief,” I will bring to our attention, the severe and subtle actions of the one called satan, who is described by Jesus as one full of evil intentions, and a thief among Gods people.


Unready Soldiers

Michael

I awakened from a prophetic dream where I was part of a squad of about 30 men who were trained to parachute drop into problem zones and deal with situations.


Christchurch and Beyond

Michael

The picture I see is large and complex, yet has some touch points that point to areas of serious lack in our Christian culture across the church of this city.  Prior to the earthquakes and other disastrous events across New Zealand, I and other prophetic people were warning all who would hear that sorrows were coming if the Family of God did not quickly respond to His calls for intimacy and personal spiritual growth.


Preparations for this time

Paul Keith Davis

A dark night of the soul! That is an expression I often hear as I travel throughout the U.S. and abroad. Seemingly, many believers are going through a process that is difficult and painful. Nevertheless it is for a fruitful cause.

Faith

Michael

There are different concepts and opinions about faith. Some of what is called faith I would call hope. At other times I have heard people pray in optimism, thinking that mental persuasion is faith. Faith is more than persuasion and optimism, it is...



Word for Christchurch Leaders

Michael

22/05/12

Here is an outline of what I am perceiving about Christchurch and beyond, and what we are perceiving as a group. I hope this  resonates with many people in Christchurch but am concerned that it will be heard by very few.  I...


Habits of Godliness

Michael

From the moment of our first surrender to Jesus Christ, as soon as we invite Him to live in us, He moves into our spirit. From that moment on we can live from His life. All we have to do is keep our soul to spirit connection open and flowing.  Developing habits that help our relationship with God grow ever deeper helps.


Trusting God more

Michael

We can assess where we are in our resting in Him by looking at our internal trust levels, identifying which step we are on at any given moment and then quickly use these steps to trust our way to victory. Every attack and every crisis will push us into a lesser state of trusting and we need to have quick ways to bring ourselves back into full effectiveness.
