It’s not just the strange tale of a talking donkey. Numbers 22 has a lot to tell us about blessings and curses and how words work God’s way.
‘First the Church is lulled into acceptance, then the hammer falls…”
Don’t Drop Your Sword In The Fight.
The word of God is our only weapon against such attacks. Human strategies, philosophies and arguments are a vain hope – useless to push back the darkness. But hell trembles when we open our mouths and declare, “It is written.”
Is that too simple? Do we want to fight him on his own terms?
The Lord Jesus Christ did not do so.
THE VITAL ROLE OF PRAYER IN EVANGELISM. Thoughts From Reading ‘Tortured For Christ’ By Richard Wurmbrand. 1.
“My God,” he prayed aloud, “I’ve served You on earth.. And my reward should be that I shouldn’t die before I bring a Jew to Christ, because Jesus was from the Jewish people.” He sighed. “But I’m poor, old, and sick. I can’t go around and find a Jew. In my village, there aren’t any. Bring a Jew into my village, and I’ll do my best to lead him to Christ.”
WE’D BETTER GO INTO TRAINING – FOR GODLINESS
Some time around 10pm (I think) a singer put down his trumpet and said, ‘The Holy Spirit is here, let’s be silent and welcome his presence.’
Within a few minutes, we all knew the anointing, overwhelming, presence of God – come to counsel and comfort, to convict the world with regard to sin and righteousness and judgement.As I looked around I saw hundreds, many hundreds, all kinds of people around the Arena where not long ago death and horror reigned doing just that men and women and young people coming back to life! Hands up everywhere. Many were in tears and others smiling broadly as they did business with God in what was now surely a holy place as he made himself present where he had been so royally welcomed and honoured. The King had come.
Paul Hallam – Unity – The Missing Key
John 17:6-11 ‘That they may be one – even as we are one.’ This is what is on his heart and uppermost in his mind – unity. He has everything being put into place on the other side of his death and resurrection. And he knows that UNITY is the Key, if we are to build anything in life. Nobody can do it alone. So his emphasis, his prayer for us – is unity. Even as he’s on death row effectively, he’s not praying ‘Lord be with me, in this trial, make it easier.’ He transcends his needs to pray for ours. We are here as church, because of this prayer. You can’t just have revival because you hold a prayer meeting or an event, how do I know? We have tried it! It comes – to the desperate, those who know their own poverty who cry out, in their desperation for God, and for their own condition. Our lives are made up of moments. Some of have had those life changing, life shaping moments. What if this happened now when […]
The Making and Multiplying of Disciples and Disciple Makers – Jason Lozano #Nextlevel
Ed Stetzer MOVEMENTS and MULTIPLICATION where we are, now. #Nextlevel
What stops us saying ‘We would love to multiply where you are.’ The only way to do that is to overcome fear. Because fear is the opposite of faith. And if that has stopped you, don’t let having less not stop you doing more because scarcity brings clarity and if we make our vision and mission again. Serving the hurting. Saving the lost – We would see this as such an opportune time
