Israel Overland - Leaving date delayed by a month

Israel Overland – Leaving date delayed by a month

follow-me

Unfortunately due to passport and visa issues my leaving date is delayed by about a month. It’s a good thing. I’m actually quite relieved. I needed the extra time to get things done.

Meanwhile here is a video showing some of my preparations. I plan to make one of these each week.

I need considerable assistance.  Please prayerfully consider this scripture if this is your function in the body of…

Regular readers will know that I believe God has prophesied that this world will experience revival everywhere.

The change is so vast that it can be seen in statistics. It’s a story unfolding in this world, but it’s not in the interest of the MSM to promote this story.

Id like to share four things…

One

An article I’d like to draw your attention to is: Nigeria’s Upcoming 3½ Sq. Mile Worship Pavilion Shows Growth of Evangelical Christianity

The Redeemed Christian Church of God in Nigeria’s most populous city of Lagos currently holds its all-night prayer meetings in a covered pavilion that can seat about a million people. It’s the size of 87 football fields, and yet not big enough. The new pavilion under construction will be 18 times the size of the existing one, or three and a half square miles, reports Public Radio International.

Two

The Atlas of Pentecostalism is a unique and dynamic online database, mapping an expanding global religion as it evolves. The project uses global crowd-sourcing and big data to provide an independent perspective on Pentecostalism and offers various narrative pathways through the materials.

Im excited to see the growth, but Im alarmed to see an increase in the numbers of people worldwide who don’t believe that there is a devil. That is a big mistake, to let him hide away and not confront him and defeat our common enemy who enslaves us.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. – Eph 6:12

The Atlas of Pentecostalism is available as a book and also as a free PDF download.

Three

Another article I’d like to draw your attention to is: Pentecostalism: Mapping Its Global Growth

Some quotes…

  • “Pentecostal Christians believe that the Holy Spirit is here and now. An estimated 35,000 people join the Pentecostal church each day.
  • Of the world’s two billion Christians a quarter are now Pentecostal—up from 6 percent in 1980.”
  • “Because heaven is real, God is real, and that is why we want to plant churches like Starbucks.” – Pastor James Fadele

Here is a quote I totally agree with… “The growth of the church should not be based on orthodoxy but orthopraxis so as to change society for better.”

Four

Another article I’d like to draw your attention to is: Jim Rutz: The ‘Megashift’ of the Worldwide Church

Some great quotes about Christian growth from Jim Rutz…

  • When I was a kid in Sunday School, I was really impressed that 3,000 people were saved on the Day of Pentecost,” he says. Now that happens around the globe every 25 minutes.
  • Jim believes 2003 probably saw the last war of massed armies. For the church, the 1700-year nightmare is over, and we are launching the final transformation of the Earth. “Predominant power has suddenly shifted into the hands of us nobodies,” Jim says.
  • The Lord is working quietly, continually, and spectacularly. God has brought people back from the dead in 52 countries, mostly in the last 10 years. All documented.
  • Jim says time is up; God is taking over. In 1960 there were 24 nonbelievers for every believer in the world. Now there are only six.
  • This is the biggest megashift in history. But as national strongholds of sin are dismantled and pits of misery cleaned up, the true purpose of God for many nations will be revealed. We are in the early stages of a total transformation of our planet.

Jim credits a lot of this growth to “open churches”… although Im not sure about this…

How does an open church look different from a traditional church? Most of them meet in homes, offices, schools, and restaurants. A bigger difference: they aren’t once-a-week affairs. They offer a 24/7 support community that’s somewhere between a volleyball team, college fraternity, etc. They don’t have programs. Projects sometimes, but not programs. Their meetings are highly participatory. The good ones are viral — what baseball calls expansion teams.

Phenomenal growth of Christianity worldwide Regular readers will know that I believe God has prophesied that this world will experience revival everywhere…

Recently I found this amazing series of maps that show Jesus Christ’s ministry over time in Israel. (Galyn also has other amazing maps covering just about everything and anything)

You can view the maps in a slideshow below, but to enjoy the full experience you need to print them off and take some time, slow time, to read through the pages one by one and soak it in. To help you do that, here is a PDF version. Or please click through to Galyn’s website.

Considering the effects of Edward Bernays on this world

Considering the effects of Edward Bernays on this world

puppet master

Still on the effects of Edward Bernays on this world. He simply did what Darwin did. They discovered how the world works. And then the world ran to this knowledge with gusto and reveled in it.

Darwin discovered that death is the final outcome and it comes to those who cannot run as fast as the others. Only the fittest survive. And that simple understanding has given rise to multitudes of…

Jesus and The Engineering of Consent by Edward Bernays

Jesus and The Engineering of Consent by Edward Bernays

wwii-propaganda-posters

Recently I discovered ”The Engineering of Consent” by Edward Bernays first published in 1947. He defines “engineering consent” as the art of manipulating people. His ground breaking work led to successful propaganda before and during WW1 in the USA.

I knew I had been led to read that specific document by the Holy Spirit but I couldn’t see why… at least not initially. When I had moved past my…

This post is another one that has come out of my journey in scripture into understanding Jesus Christ in His role as God’s gift to us.

This post has unfolded in my thinking and my experience over many years… and have been written in my thoughts over recent weeks. I know that God wants me to write this down right now… in fact I should have done it a few days ago… but my spirit was willing but my…

In case you missed it… on my prayer journey to Israel… Is 62:10-12 says to “lift up the stones and prepare the highway”

A few interesting things Ive noticed in the bible

A few interesting things Ive noticed in the bible

First, let me clarify my view on the bible.

The bible contains the words of God. Period. All of scripture is God-breathed.

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness – 2 Tim 3:16

No if’s and’s or but’s. All of scripture is God breathed… and the mistakes too!

Here are some IMO very interesting things Ive noticed in the bible.

Appeal for financial support for my prayer journey across Africa to Israel

Appeal for financial support for my prayer journey across Africa to Israel

Some of you may have read that Im about to make a prayer journey across Africa to Egypt and then to Jerusalem and perhaps beyond.

Ive had lots of opinions – most of them extremely positive – about this trip. Many people ask me how this started. I answer as best as I can because I dont really remember.

Until today. I was reading in my journal (PDF)

“That would explain why I don’t see any one…

Replacement theology

Replacement theology

israel-flag

After writing about the completed work of Jesus Christ in this post I began to wonder about the whole brouhaha surrounding Replacement Theology. I felt led to read up about it today. So I did.

What a mish mash of conflicting views and different arguments. It’s a lot like the whole 666 Anti-christ and end times and rapturenonsense. satan is having a field day twisting scripture and encouraging…

God’s eternal purposes are accomplished in Christ Jesus

This is one of the most bold posts Ive ever attempted. In order to write this I have had to write several other posts as reference material explaining other things I believe. It’s been a mammoth task to record and research all of this… mammoth relative to my normal efforts on this blog.

The Holy Spirit showed me these things over the years and many weeks ago I had the idea for this post. Idea?…
