I have been stirred up by the Lord (and so have other ministries I know) that it is time to start "reaping the harvest"—and that requires everyone. So I am writing this article to you to try to get people to see it's not a burden to win the lost, and you don't...

One of my friend’s sons has a parrot named Danny. Once when I went to visit, the bird,
which was perched on the child’s shoulder, screeched so loudly it hurt my
ears. I looked nervously at it and
then at its owner. Seeing my
apprehensive glance, my friend’s son spoke to me.
we pass up opportunities to reveal Jesus to others. But with a little
creativity we can seize those moments for eternity.
of the last things Jesus said to the disciples was, “‘Go into all the
world and preach the gospel to every creature'” (Mark 16:15, NKJV). This
Scripture applies to His followers today as well, but it doesn’t mean
we all have to leave our jobs and homes and go into full-time ministry.
It simply means we are to act as Jesus acted.
deposited His life in us, the church. Now we are commissioned to do
just what He did–and He gave us the power and authority to do it. He
said, “‘I give you the authority over all the power of the enemy, and
nothing shall by any means hurt you'” (Luke 10:19).
problem is that we often put limits on God. We acquire wrong mind-sets
about the ways in which He works–or the ways in which He will work
through us. We need to ask Him to remove the mental “box” that limits
our faith and to help us believe that the same Spirit who was in Jesus
is in us, making it possible for us to operate in the same types of
ministry He did.
One weekend near the end of 1999 I set aside time to be in the presence of the Lord and pray. On Saturday morning I sat up in bed and began to wait on Him. Suddenly I heard footsteps walking across the kitchen and coming toward the bedroom door. I knew there was no...
My husband, David, had a vision years ago. He saw armies of young people in many nations. They had guns and other weapons. They were undergoing training for war. Then the Holy Spirit showed him young people in America. They were goofing around, aimless and not caring....
I had a stunning experience recently that God used to
point out something to me. I had been away for a few days visiting and
praying with Rose Weiner, a close friend of mine who lives in
Gainesville, Florida. Rose and her husband, Bob, had a ministry raising
up churches on the campuses of the United States and in other nations.
They discipled and trained many hundreds of young people to take the
gospel to the nations.
Have you ever wondered about the part angels play in your
daily life? Many Christians believe God sends them only to “special”
people, such as those with large ministries, or on “special” occasions,
such as when a person is in danger. The truth is that angels have a
ministry to all the saints of God—including you and me—to strengthen,
comfort and help us in our ministries.
If you’ve ever read any written accounts of true revivals in past ages, you know about the powerful ways in which God moved upon the people, both inside and outside the church. But you may not be aware that when these powerful manifestations of God took place, many other things—things that were not of God—came in also. Strong fleshly shows and demonic take-offs tried to discredit the move. Without the discernment present to separate the precious from the vile, there was a kind of chaos.
One of the last things Jesus said to the disciples was, "'Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature'" (Mark 16:15, NKJV). This Scripture applies to His followers today as well, but it doesn't mean we all have to leave our jobs and homes and go into...
THE HOLY SPIRIT WITHIN US BEARS WITNESS TO THE TRUTH. IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT WE LEARN TO DISCERN IT BY LISTENING TO HIM. If you've ever read any written accounts of true revivals in past ages, you know about the powerful ways in which God moved upon the people, both...
A handful of intercessors in the Hebrides, off the coast of Scotland, came together to pray in the late 1940s. When God answered their prayers, revival swept the islands, and entire communities experienced the Holy Spirit's power.Mention the word "revival" among...
MANY OF US THINK THAT GOD SENDS ANGELS ONLY TO CERTAIN PEOPLE AND ON SPECIAL OCCASIONS. BUT ANGELS HAVE A MINISTRY TO ALL THE SAINTS.
Have you ever wondered about the part angels play in your daily life?

Throughout the Bible–Old and New Testaments–there are accounts of the involvement of angels in the lives of God’s people. In fact, angel appearances were so common among the early Christians that it was easier for Jesus’ disciples to believe that Peter’s angel was knocking at the door of the place where they were praying than that Peter had been released from prison! (See Acts 12:12-17.) Here are just a few examples of angelic activity recorded in Scripture:
