“It’s difficult to put words to how excited I am about this video! One of the reasons I’m excited is because we have seen healing before, we’ve seen the power of God before, we’ve seen people set free, baptized in water, and filled with the Holy Spirit before, but HERE you see these things, but not ONLY that! Here, we give you some tools, and we show you what it is God is about to do. I spoke a few weeks ago that a SHIFT was coming to the church, and a SHIFT was coming to The Last Reformation, and we did a video about it two weeks ago.
We have now started to see what this SHIFT looks like, and it is so powerful! It is so beautiful, and I can just say I truly love it! This video will give you all a taste of how it is. In this video I tell about what we’ve been doing with a group of people this last week, and you not only hear it but you also see it, and then I share the vision with you out there and give you tools so you can go out and do the same! This is the second video of several I will do where we talk about this SHIFT, as we will follow up on it in a few weeks again. But I encourage you to see the whole video here, even though it’s a little longer, and share it with other people! Note the importance of effective baptism that releases the power of the Holy Spirit.
Love this song from Justin Bieber and Chandler Moore posted by Churchome. They are a community built on the life and teachings of Jesus.
Extract from their website:
“The name, “Churchome,” reflects our belief that we are going to be a church that functions like a home, that looks like a home, and that loves like a home. And ultimately, what we experience on earth will look a lot like heaven.
Luke 15 has become a hallmark passage for our community. The idea and concept of home is centric in scripture. It is the idea that every human is a sojourner and he/she is returning home. Home is not so much brick and mortar, an actual space or room. Home is a place and a posture our soul discovers in Jesus—where the created returns to a loving relationship with the Creator. Bringing people home is what God does. Whether prodigals or prodigies, artists or intellectuals, rebels or rejects, God’s arms are open to all.”
Joseph Mattera joins the list of Christian leaders in the USA that recognise that God is bringing about radical change in His church. It is imperative that believers have truly died to self and live life directed by the Holy Spirit.
He says in an article in Charisma News entitled Five Ways God is Reforming His Church in 2020. “I believe 2020 is the year when more and more leaders will attempt to build “disciple making movements”. The corporate business model of doing church—which took off in the 1980s—has proven that, irrespective of the crowds they garner, they usually fail at disciple making. Jesus proved that focusing on disciple making was the key to building the largest and most effective movement the world has ever seen.
This will be the year when disciple making will gain the traction needed to eventually challenge the assumptions of the “CEO convert driven” model of church.
Luke called his historical narrative “the book of Acts” (or the book of Action), not “the book of theology or philosophy.” The Scriptures were written to tell the story of our missionary Father/God, who loved the world and gave up His only Son to save every tribe, nation and people. Those who are truly hearing the heart of God will read the Bible with a missional lens and desire to demonstrate the power of God to a lost and dying world!
In the context of the church, they will live to empower disciples for the work of the ministry (Eph. 4:12) and in the context of the world, they will desire to manifest His power in a way that proves Jesus rose from the dead. Consequently, many new evangelists will begin to arise (as we saw in the “voice of healing” movement in the 1950’s) and some will eventually fill stadiums, proclaiming the gospel and praying for the sick. (In the past decade, we have only seen a trickle of what is to come!)”
May the reformation of the church that started in the 16th century continue until the Lord Himself comes back for His bride. May all who read this post have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to His Body!
