The gift of God’s presence

Hedonism is the philosophy which makes pleasure-seeking the main point of life. Everything is about trying to feel good and pursuing anything that promises us pleasure and enjoyment. This may sound like Scrooge, the Charles Dickens character from A Christmas Carol, but Christmas can play into the hedonism dictated by our cultural environment. The people of the world, for the...

A place of deep rest, inexpressible joy and pure worship

A place of deep rest, inexpressible joy and pure worship

Have you ever felt a longing inside you so deep, so profound, that sometimes you barely notice its existence? And yet you know it is there. It is like an aching void within that you long to fill but don’t always know how. You believe that you have been made for fellowship with God and that fellowship is profoundly satisfying...

The power of your testimony

The power of your testimony

God has given to you the ministry of reconciliation! You are an ambassador for Jesus, and he has given you the task of introducing him to people through your testimony. In Acts 1:8 Jesus says, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all... Read more...


The promise of power

The promise of power

Jesus said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Now when...

The anointed Church

The anointed Church

In the Old Testament, a staff was a symbol of prophetic authority. When Elisha sent his servant Gehazi to resuscitate a dead boy, he equipped him with his staff as the sign that Gehazi was acting in the name and authority of a true prophet. Gehazi had previously observed a healing miracle and had only to do exactly what his... Read more...


Jesus is Lord!

Jesus is Lord!

The Lordship of Jesus Christ is one of the most important Christian truths. In fact, your entire life of faith depends on it. Your faith is empty, and you have no hope of salvation, if Jesus is not the Lord (the ultimate authority in creation, the absolute ruler of the universe), and if he has not proved his Lordship by...

Three million people waiting

Three million people waiting

“I believe we should be more confident about our status as a Christian country, more ambitious about expanding the role of faith-based organisations, and, frankly, more evangelical about a faith that compels us to get out there and make a difference to people’s lives.” (David Cameron, Easter Speech) We are still a Christian country – or so the Prime Minister...

Resurrection now!

Resurrection now!

Our faith is founded both in the past accomplishments and the future promises of God. The resurrection of Christ happened a long time ago. Our resurrection will take place in the future. But this has a lot to teach us about how to live for God now. As we look back to the resurrection of Christ and look forward to... Read more...


Step out of the boat!

Step out of the boat!

The miracles that demonstrate who Jesus is are not just the ones he performs independently from his Church, but also the ones he does in us, with us and through us.   The miracle of walking on water followed straight after the feeding of the five thousand. The miraculous multiplication of bread and fish was supposed to teach the disciples... Read more...


The battle for souls

The battle for souls

Real faith is all about engaging in the most significant battle that we can ever face, and that is the battle for souls. Many evangelists and those who minister in the miraculous often say that the biggest miracle that they experience is not the healing of a body, but the saving of a soul. In this battle we are facing... Read more...


Strongholds of the mind

Strongholds of the mind

It is said that truth is the first casualty of war. Nations at war use propaganda as a significant weapon against each other. In spiritual warfare truth plays an even more crucial role. It defines the very nature of the battle. The heart of spiritual warfare is the battle for the hearts and minds of people. All demonic strongholds are... Read more...

Watch and pray

Today the Holy Spirit is sweeping across the nations of the world as never before in history. More than 110,000 people are added to the Church of Jesus Christ daily. The outpouring is reaching near revival proportions on practically every continent on earth. And this is only the beginning! We are standing at the edge of the greatest wave of... Read more...


The power of friendship

The power of friendship

Friends delight in each other’s company and their friendship in the Spirit enhances their service, motivates their actions and strengthens their commitment to Christ. The Bible places a high value on friendship, showing us how we can benefit from companionship and how we can use this gift in the kingdom of God. Friendship is, of course, beneficial in its own...

When heaven breaks open

When heaven breaks open

Religion, faith in God or following Christ is not a matter of religious observance as if you can treat God like a slot machine. You cannot make Him to do anything for you. He is no genie in a bottle that you can manipulate with the right magic words and force Him to manifest Himself and say, “Your wish is... Read more...


Finding & Fulfilling Your Ministry

Finding & Fulfilling Your Ministry

It is my desire to see every believer fulfilling the ministry that God has for them. In my experience, however, there are two main stumbling blocks – either people are not aware of the giftings that God has given them, or they have an idea of their gift areas but do not know where to begin. It seems that sometimes... Read more...
