The Means Has Become the End – Repent!

The Lord is speaking to His Church today – apostles are prophetically crying out and declaring the Word of the Lord. Few, as of yet, are heeding the Word but it has been and is being released and will accomplish all that the Lord sends it forth to do – not returning to Him void of results (Isaiah 55:11).

The Church (believers) pray for the glory of God to fall upon our assemblies and our worship. Good! But that is simply a means to an end – the end being that as darkness becomes gross darkness (Isaiah 60:1-3) the nations will see the “light” upon the Church and come to know and to worship our God. Too often today believers want the “glory” but simply for themselves so that they can feel that God approves of them and sense the approval of God on their assembly. We have turned the “glory” into an idol as we have also done with revival and the anointing.

Apostolic Paradigm Changes

As 21st Century apostolic churches emerge (and they will do so quickly), there will be at least four specific paradigm changes taking place within the local church. A paradigm is a model or pattern in which we function and through which we view the Church.

The first apostolic paradigm shift is perhaps the most profound and powerful. It will be a breaking free from the one-man-only paradigm. This paradigm requires all of the church’s marketing efforts and resources to be used in drawing people to a building to be taught by one ascension (doma) gift. In this paradigm there is no sending (apostolic) dimension. Read more

God Is Raising Up Five-fold Evangelists

I believe there is a dramatic change already in progress within the true Church of Jesus Christ in North America. This shift is going to involve everyone – every born again believer. This change will begin in the Charismatic, Spirit-filled side of the Christian Church where it will hit suddenly and with great force – becoming instantly active and bringing new life to the saints.

The Tip of the Iceberg

It seems that almost every week we are hearing of another major name in the ministry who is in trouble in one way or another. Moral failure, divorce, lying and deceiving, addictions – with them going public either because they could no longer live with the tension of a double life and a hypocritical lifestyle or because they were caught with their hand in the cookie jar.

As I have been praying and seeking the Lord’s heart on this recurring problem – praying and thinking about it – I have heard the Lord say some very specific things

Imminent Change

My sense from the Lord recently is that He is moving upon His Church to make some major adjustments. These changes will be many and very foundational. As a result of changing the foundation He will be literally changing the look of the Church and the dynamic of life within His Church worldwide.

He will be removing things that are held in high regard – close to sacred – and replacing them with a single focus that is His heart. He will be removing those things which we hold close to our hearts to replace them with THE thing that is on His heart. This is a time, similar to the time of Jeremiah, when the Lord was tearing down and uprooting before a time of building and planting (Jeremiah 1:10). Read more

Radical Revolutionaries

There is arising in the Kingdom what is sometimes referred to as the Benjamin Generation. (Some refer to it as the Joshua Generation). This is a generation of youth who will lead a radical revolution within the Church which will overflow into society eventually impacting the whole planet.

This radical revolution will begin in their own lives and will involve a deep, penetrating repentance for sin. This radical repentance will come from the very depth of their souls and will be so immediately life-changing that it will revolutionize their lives – marking them forever as Radical Revolutionaries. It will be accomplished without hype or excessive emotion and will permanently mark those involved as being set apart for the Lord and the work of the Last Days Church.

A Change in Focus

These are exciting times to be alive in the Kingdom and working with the Lord as He moves mightily in nation after nation in the world today. As I either speak to or exchange emails with leaders and believers from many nations around the world I sense that God is truly doing great and mighty things in preparation for a worldwide move of His Spirit. This move will substantially touch every nation of the world. We are in the preparation stages before the release and we need to be listening carefully to the voice of God through the apostles and prophets. True apostles and prophets will be speaking of a time of cleansing and change; holiness and righteousness; integrity and veracity. Read more

Time to Change What You Are Preaching

It is amazing what is being preached and proclaimed from the pulpit these days in North America – at least the ones I am aware of or in touch with on a regular basis. It is not greatly different in other nations where I either work (Ukraine) or have contacts. Afterall, they are all trying to be so much like their North American brothers and sisters in the Lord. They look at our prosperity, our buildings, our technology and the many other blessings that we enjoy and desire to see the same situation arise in their nations. However, often they absorb a great deal of the cultural side to the Christian message and lose the pure gospel – not to mention the joy of finding their own cultural expression of the good news of Jesus Christ.

It is Time To Stand Up and Become Involved

Over the past five years the number of young people (ages 25 to 35) being called out prophetically into the five-fold ministry of apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher has been increasing dramatically. God is getting His Church prepared for something great – and I believe it is a tremendous harvest of lost souls as we see revival sweep the nations of the world.

When a prophet use to visit our area and minister in the Network I oversee – in six days of services I would hear one or maybe two young people called out prophetically to fill a five-fold ministry role in the Church. Now, in an equal number of public services, I am hearing a dozen calls into these important governmental ministries. It is exciting. Read more

A New Addiction For God’s People

God is addicted. Addicted to change. Now the Bible tells us that God does not change – He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is very emphatic when He states “I am the Lord God and I change not” (Malachi 3:6).

He is in the business of changing those who come to Him for salvation. He wants to see ordinary people turned into extraordinary followers of God. Followers who have been given power and who are now out making an incredible difference in the lives of others. They move out into the ‘highways and by-ways’ and witness to the lost – seeing God redeem, restore and redirect the most unlikely candidates and characters. Read more
