Draw Life

As the people of God assemble today may they hear the Word of Life and may their worshipinghearts and minds be turned upon Him who is their life and may they draw life from His presence; life for spiritual strength, life for well-being both in body and emotion, and draw life that it might be passed on to others so those others might know that Jesus lives and is their Hope.  “But these are written (recorded) in order that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ (the Anointed One), the Son of God, and that through believing and cleaving to and trusting and relying upon Him you may have life through (in) His name [through Who He is].” (Jn.20:31, Amp)


Era of Hope

The era of half-hearted church-maintaining, while sneaking peeks toward the sky hoping for an escape, is dying away. Do not think for one minute that it is not also the heart-felt wish of the powers of hell and the spirit of this age that the church might go someplace else, because the wisdom of God and the redemptive power of His Christ are being manifest through His church and the Kingdom of God is advancing in the earth in spite of the best-effort opposition of the kingdom of darkness. We are in a new era where there is hope for the future and there is determination of sons to be manifest as groan-stoppers (Rom.8:19, 22). In Jn.20:21 Jesus told His disciples that He was sending them even as the Father had sent Him. Then, we have record of the extraordinary results of that authoritative sending throughout the Book of Acts.  (Second excerpt from Marty’s article “The New Era and the Church Trampling”)
