I have been preparing the prairies for an outpouring of My Spirit which will be nothing less than a flood of the supernatural. I will flood the prairies, I will flood the prairies, I will flood the prairies, with a wave of My supernatural power. Signs, wonders, healings and miracles will explode. But more than that, the Lord of the Church and the Lord of the prairies says, that I will flood the prairies with My glory, My glory, My glory, My glory, My manifest presence, says the Lord. My kabod, My weightiness shall flood the prairies, says the Lord. And you will see unprecedented things occur – we’ve never heard of that before, where is that in the Bible? Read more
In the Church today – at least in the part that I am most familiar with here in North America – there is a serious problem with prophetic words spoken over nations and regions. There are ‘national prophets’, some valid prophetic voices and others simply self-appointed, who speak over the nation or regions of the nations sending their prophetic words around the world via the internet. Many things are spoken of, promised, warned against, and even condemned or blessed in the Name of the Lord (and the Church).
This is really more than an “insight” – it could almost be called a “prophetic warning”. I believe that God is speaking to His Church here in Canada and the United States and is warning us of a battle that is already raging for the hearts and minds of His people.
This Last Days battle is not what we would have expected. Usually our thoughts turn to the face-off between God’s Kingdom and the devil’s kingdom as seen in the revelation of John the apostle. Some believe and write that this Last Days battle will be between the real Church and the apostate church; others that the battle will be between two world religions – the Christian faith and maybe, with events that are unfolding today, the Muslim faith. But, God is speaking to His Church about an internal battle where the enemy is within the fellowship and not attacking from the outside. Read more
The Bible is very clear about the office of apostle when it states:
“And He set some in the Church, first apostles…” 1 Corinthians 12:28
First in the sense that they were chosen by the Lord Jesus to be with Him (Mark 3:13-14) and then to be the leaders of the early church after it’s birth on the Day of Pentecost.
First in the sense that they were needed as eye witnesses to all that had happened in the Lord’s three years of ministry; His death, His resurrection, His appearances over a period of weeks, and then His ascension into Heaven. In fact, this was the criterion for picking the person who would replace Judas Iscariot as the new twelfth apostle (Acts 1:21-22). Read more
When building a house, as I did many years ago now, the most important part of the building is the foundation. Changes can be made to the structure of the house at any time – in fact, even now we are remodeling a major portion of our home. Walls, ceilings, fixtures are exchanged frequently but the foundation is created to last.
When building the Church we must be careful how we construct the foundation. Ephesians 2:20 states that the foundation is built upon the apostles and prophets with Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone. God has set out for us directions concerning the laying of the foundation. And, we would do well to heed His directions. Read more
We have been building all wrong. No wonder our churches are often such a mess and most often somewhat impotent. Statistics in North America indicate that we are not winning the lost – often we simply shuffle the saints. Percentage-wise we are not winning the lost as fast as the population is growing. Therefore, the percentage of the overall population that is born again Christians is smaller than a decade ago.
You read the book of Acts and wonder how the church has become so pathetic and often apathetic. It is because we have not become prophetic and apostolic.
Ephesians 2:20 (The church) built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.
