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
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.

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
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
It is time to grab hold of our true identity and authority and move out into our communities and our nation. It is time to understand that the Lord Jesus came to defeat the work of the devil (1 John 3:8) and did so. That he is a defeated enemy and thus is powerless over the believer.
A good example of this is your own salvation. As soon as you were convicted by the Holy Spirit of your sin and the need for a Saviour the devil was not able to stop you from experiencing salvation and receiving the gift of eternal life (Romans 6:23). You were translated instantly from the domain of darkness into the Kingdom of Light where Jesus is King. The devil was powerless to prevent this once you decided to take this step of faith.
I sense that there has been a shift in the spiritual realm here in North America. I have sensed it both here in the churches in western Canada as well as in northern California and into Montana. I think it is from coast-to-coast-to-coast in both nations and is not limited to one area of either nation. Read more
I am deeply concerned about the current state of the Church where ministries – even anointed men and women of God – are teaching from their dreams and visions and not from the Word of God. They are taking their dreams and visions and calling them the “word of the Lord” when they have not compared their content from the dreams and experiences to the true Word of the Lord – the only plumb line or standard that we have – the Bible.

This past few weeks I have become even more excited about being a member of the Lord’s Church and part of His Kingdom. The feeling is that “I was born for such a time as this”. Well, of course I was – God plans everyone’s birth, the time and the season that they are born into, and the things that He has planned for them to do. But, now I feel it deep in my gut. I was born for THIS time and THIS season and I am getting more and more excited about THIS task that I have as an apostle in His Church. Read more
The Lord is wanting His Church – you and me – to be telling others of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This gospel, Paul tells us, is the “power of God unto salvation.” And people today do not know this Gospel that leads people to the recognition that they are sinners and deserve to go to Hell. It is this Gospel that enables the Holy Spirit to “convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment.” Only then can a sinner repent with godly sorrow and turn from their sinful ways and receive forgiveness and the gift of eternal life.

The Lord has impressed upon my heart that the Church is in desperate trouble when it comes to believers knowing and living the Truth. In spite of all the great teaching that goes forth from pulpits around the world, today Christians apparently do not have a firm grasp on the basic beliefs of the true Christian faith. And, as a result, they lack discernment, often not being able to tell what is really Truth and what is simply someone’s opinion or personal interpretation. Read more
