The missionary

This week I had the pleasure of once again meeting a few of Elim’s missionaries. It was Elim UK’s Centenary conference and although it would have been wonderful to have had all of them I was thankful to see the ones that could make it.
They are incredible people and I am again thankful for the privilege of being their leader.
I was moved especially by what I observed:-
1. Their Friendship
Though they come from different backgrounds and work in different continents they came together for a lunch meeting and had pictures taken. Obvious friendship was there built through Skype contact but now being experienced face to face.

2. Surrender
I commented how one of them had lost lots of weight, They told me they had fasted for 40 days and were now seeing incredible answers to prayer, miracles and salvations were taking place. They were in…

Hosea 13 I’m sorry but I just can’t ge


Missions Paul

Hosea 13

I’m sorry but I just can’t get past the first 5 words this morning.
“When Ephraim spoke men trembled”
I’m a preacher.
So I can say this…
No I won’t say it, I’ll just give you some quotes.
You will know what I am saying …

“It is a poor sermon that gives no offense; that neither makes the hearer displeased with himself nor with the preacher” ~George whitefield

“The preaching that this world needs most is the sermons in shoes that are walking with Jesus Christ.” ~ D.L. Moody

“We are too busy to pray, and so we are too busy to have power. We have a great deal of activity, but we accomplish little; many services but few conversions; much machinery but few results.” ~R.A. Torrey

“The scriptures are given not to increase our knowledge, but to change our
lives.” ~Dwight Moody

Men trembled when Ephraim…

Daniel 8 Greatness and power are importa


Such encouragement

Missions Paul

Daniel 8

Greatness and power are important words in this chapter, they are repeated often.
v4 the ram becomes great, no one could stand against him and his power.
v8 the goat becomes very great.
v9 the little horn grew in power and set itself up as great, it prospered in everything, v12.
Satan will always move against God’s people with greatness and power.
Whether through the empires of the Medes and Persians of Daniels era or the spirit of antichrist found in Antiochus Epiphanes who gave himself the title “Theos Antiochus” meaning “The illustrious God” or the many ‘Hitlers’ of the modern world, all have attacked and still attack the church.
However, what we know today from this chapter is that the spirit of the antichrist will be destroyed, v25.
Whatever generation God’s people find themselves in, whatever empire they live under, they can speak boldly and loudly to…

Daniel 6 Have you been judged, condemned


Shammah is on the other side of the obstacles, have faith, He has not left you.

Missions Paul

Daniel 6

Have you been judged, condemned and sentenced?
Has a stone been rolled over you sealing your fate?
Does your situation now look like it cannot be changed?
Never worry about the set of circumstances you find yourself in.
It’s behind the stone that counts.
Behind the stone is God who saves.
Behind the stone is God who sends the angel.
Behind the stone is God who shuts down the power of the enemy.

You may have been thrown down (v16) but you will be lifted up (v23).
God is always behind the stone. He specialises in coming out of those dark places. Trust Him.

What’s Dead in Your Life?


The Holy Spirit bring life to the lifeless husk.

THIRSTY?

In this season of renewed faith, my heart is stirring—swelling with the possibilities of the concept found in Ezekiel 37. It by no means is a new idea, but as we know the distractions of weak faith can cause a forgetfulness to settle on us—keeping us from remembering the tools God has provided for us to live successfully. And seriously, if we will apply these concepts—our life will change.

First let me give you a little insight as to what’s happening in Ezekiel 37. God takes Ezekiel to a valley of dry dead bones—this was not just a few dead bodies but a whole valley full, and asks him a question, He says, “Can these bones live?” What God is really asking Ezekiel is “Do you believe—do you have the faith to believe what’s dead can come to life?”

Such a simple question, but so deep and personal.

God is…

Ezekiel 6 Mountains are firm and unmovab


At times, we can get perspective all wrong in such a way that the struggles that come against us, the battles seem great, like a mountain, but nothing is bigger out mightier that our God.

Missions Paul

Ezekiel 6

Mountains are firm and unmovable.
Mountains are fixed, durable and last forever.
Mountains are prominent and tower over you.
Mountains call for respect and awe and worship.
Mountains are symbolic for the many challenges we face, they are not physical but situational.

I wake to such mountains today as I do every day.
But today is different.
Today I set my face against such domineering high places.
Today I prophecy against them.
I speak to remove their grip on my life and that of others I love too.

I do it to know him who is higher than the mountains that I face.
