The Apostolic Nature of the Church Has Been Hijacked

What a deep and confronting word by Stephen Struebing from Maranatha Global! "I love the local church with my whole heart.

Time to leave…

The following post was published by mariomurilloministries I post this with the danger of two extreme reactions: 1. The misunderstanding of me not liking Church and 2.

A ‘Barnyard Anointing’ Will Bring in The Harvest

“Vila”, War and Prayer-Rooms

Addressing the “Vila” (Swedish for resting) trend.  It’s a thing people seem to do in their “Prayer Rooms”. But… “Vila” as far as I know, is a status from where we live, NOT an activity we do in our Pprayer Rooms! Resting we do in bed not as Watchmen on the walls! Just ask the farmer; …

When the Lord has touched your Mouth…

To those that carry the New It’s amazing how well received you are if you play along and help maintaining the Old, although carrying the New.

Every Now and Then

For the past days a wonderful, refreshing, pure sound is filling our house as I "bumped into it" unexpected and surprisingly.To be honest, you need it "every now and then", the fresh new inspiration by the frequency of sounds that are charged by presence, longing, beauty and purity.... mainly when the familiar (beautiful but still …

DON’T LET A SPIRIT OF FEAR GET ATTACHED TO YOUR PRAYERS!
