Power Walking

The Spirit and the Word

JogIt seems that I talk a lot about the power of God in these posts. I believe that God is restoring His church to a walk of power in our generation. Here’s something to consider in talking about this power.

First of all, let me remind you what true power is all about. Power is the ability to produce change. If there’s no change, then there’s no power. There’s no way around it. If the power of God is manifest, then lives are changed.

As I begin to walk in this power, something new begins to happen. As my life begins to change, I start to get the world’s attention. They begin seeing something working in my life that’s beyond my ability.

It’s this very change that will attract people to Christ. At that point I will not need to convince them how awesome the Lord is – they’ll see…

The Path to Revival

Building My Faith

The Temple in Jerusalem was once again in great need of repair because of neglect. One hundred years earlier King Hezekiah had ordered the priests and Levites to sanctify themselves, sanctify the Temple, “and carry forth the filthiness out of the holy place.” Revival took place during Hezekiah’s day as worship was once again restored and the people consecrated themselves to the LORD and His commands (2 Chronicles 29-31).

King Josiah was just eight years old when he began to reign in Jerusalem following the reign of Hezekiah’s son Manasseh, followed by the reign of his grandson, Amon. As Hezekiah’s great-grandson, King Josiah at the age of sixteen began to seek after God and call for the destruction of idol worship prevalent throughout the land. The high places and groves where idol worship took place, along with their altars to Baal, their carved images and molten images used in their…

Revival

Christian Articles

The day of Pentecost a rushing mighty wind filled the whole house and then tongues, as of fire appeared to them and sat on each one. Then they were filled with the Holy Spirit. During the course of the work of the Messiah, He said: Say to those who are fearful-hearted, “Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, With the recompense of God and He will come and save you.”

Day of Pentecost

Acts 2:1-42, 46, 47   Coming of the Holy Spirit

1When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them.

Stagnant Church, Dormant Gifts

Revive Us Again

psalm133-1

This is not an attempt to discuss the history of the New Testament Church or to malign today’s Church, but to convey God’s heart for the Church today.  As someone embracing the ‘apostolic gifting’ to act as a catalyst to facilitate change in the ‘local church’ I humbly share what the Spirit of the Lord revealed to me.

Earlier this week, I awoke around 3:00am.  I heard the word stagnant in my spirit, then I heard, “A stagnant church is a stench in the nostrils of God!”

What does this mean? I immediately awoke and jotted these words down. The Spirit then led me to the Book of Isaiah 1:13-17

“Quit your worship charades. I can’t stand your trivial religious games: Monthly conferences, weekly Sabbaths, special meetings—meetings, meetings, meetings—I can’t stand one more! Meetings for this, meetings for that. I hate them! You’ve worn me out! I’m sick of…

A Secret Key to Revival

MITCHHAMMOND.COM

For many of us, one of our greatest desires would be to see God move in our churches, communities and cities. This is something we often pray and believe for – and there is no doubt, it is God’s heart to come and move amongst us.

Recently I was on a flight from Bangkok to Sydney, I’d already been in transit for about 30 hours, was relatively tired, and ready to get home. As I boarded the plane, walked down the aisle, I found my seat firmly situated amongst a family group of 13 people. 2 grandparents (who I was sitting next to), their 3 adult children and respectively spouses, plus 5 kids/grandkids, 3 of which were newborns.

For anyone who’s travelled, you know this isn’t a good situation and not really how you want to spend the last 10 hours of your 3 week holiday. Yet, very quickly I…

A Call to the Mighty

The Spirit and the Word

ClockAs I read the life of King David, I see a lot of parallels with our present generation. In waiting for God to fulfill His promise to make him king, it seemed like everything was going against him. But it was at this time in David’s life that God started to bring people to his aid.

David left Gath and escaped to the cave of Adullam. When his brothers and his father’s household heard about it, they went down to him there. All those who were in distress or in debt or discontented gathered around him, and he became their leader. About four hundred men were with him.
1 Samuel 22:1-2

This is one of the lowest points in David’s life. God had called to be king in place of Saul. He had accomplished victories over giants and armies.

Yet, at this time he was being pursued by King Saul…

Jesus is Coming Again

jms22782

Jesus told us that he was going away to prepare a place for His people, but that he would one day come again.  The Prophets Daniel, and John had visions of Jesus coming again.  Even Enoch who lived before the flood had a vision of Jesus coming again and taking vengeance on his enemies.  A cardinal doctrine of the Christian church is the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.  Many live in anticipation of His coming, as we see the events of the world unfolding before our eyes it is fitting for us to expect that his coming will be very soon.  However, the Lord also put things into his Word to alert us and bring clarity to the events of the Last days, when there would be so much confusion.  The reality is there are still many things that have to happen before we can see Jesus coming in the…
