Birthday Presents For Marianne

Today is my wife’s birthday so I’ll be short. Please consider giving her a birthday present which you can do on any day you read this or remember.

Here are your choices:

1) Participate in worship at The Fire & Glory Outpouring either live or online.

2) Get yourself a hard copy (or Kindle version) of The Message (Bible).

Read it FREE!

3) Watch an Elisha Revolution video.

4) Check out Ivan Roman (around 1:03:50) at Fresh Awakening during the revival.

Why four choices? Just a reminder that their are four faces of God in Ezekiel.

I really love The Message’s paraphrase of these verses. I shared it with a friend from Lithuania and she loved it! (She and another young woman both came from Lithuania to The Fire & Glory Outpouring by simply trusting God for provision!)

***
Since this is the kind of life we have chosen, the life of the Spirit, let us make sure that we do not just hold it as an idea in our heads or a sentiment in our hearts, but work out its implications in every detail of our lives. That means we will not compare ourselves with each other as if one of us were better and another worse. We have far more interesting things to do with our lives. Each of us is an original.
Galatians 5:25-26 The Message (MSG)

God bless you!

Try New Things In This New Year!

Happy New Year!

This morning my wife and I tried something new by attending Summit Church in San Marcos together for the first time.

Frequent readers may wonder what I mean because they have heard me refer to Summit at times. Summit Church hosts Jerame & Miranda Nelson who are the lead revivalists of The Fire & Glory Outpouring (revival).

We have been to Summit many times for The Fire & Glory Outpouring and yesterday we saw Charlie Robinson from Canada preach at both 10 am and 7 pm.

We enjoyed Charlie Robinson so much that we went to both worship services this morning and we’ll attend the revival tonight when he “tag teams” with Jerame Nelson.

If you haven’t been to The Fire & Glory Outpouring or you’re in the San Marcos area looking for a church or if you are traveling, check out Summit for the revival or regular worship service.

Tonight will be my 61st(!) time at The Fire & Glory Outpouring and this is a special once a month time called Fresh Awakening. I believe this is my 6th Fresh Awakening and I always find it amazing or wonderful or both when Jerame & Miranda invite speakers like Shawn Bolz, Ivan Roman, Sam Robinson (Charlie’s son), Theresa Dedmon, Mahesh Chavda and others to come.

Near the end of January is the One-Year Anniversary of this revival and anyone who has ever been to one may know that a year is actually a long time for a revival to last. I’ve heard that Jerame & Miranda expected to do three or four nights and Holy Spirit told them to keep going. So they are simply obeying God. Find out who’s coming in January by clicking here.

I encourage you to try lots of new things in 2017 and beyond. You can start with some music from Summit Church which you may not know. I hope to see you at revival soon, but if you really can’t make it, watch on Youtube!

A New Dance To Watch And Learn

I’m dating myself with this post’s title. If you have ever seen The Archies television show that I watched on Saturday mornings during the 1970s(!), you’ll recognize those seven words as the start of the “new dance” portion of the show. I still remember seeing one called “The Touchdown” that featured Jughead prominently.

Oh, those carefree days before 1980 when terrorists in the U.S. like the SLA and others [Google It – The SLA] were homegrown and mostly stuck to robbing banks. (At least that’s how I perceived it in my preteen years. Wait. You didn’t realize that we had terrorism way back then? It’s not new. The faces are different as well as their beliefs. But I digress and manage to explain while still bleary-eyed…ANyway…)

Recently I’ve been sharing with people I know and people I meet in Vons and Trader Joe’s and other places how I never expected to be attending 3 1/2 hour long worship services, but that’s what I’ve been doing.

This is possibly a “new dance” for you as well. Here’s another “new dance” for you. Ready?

You can watch it live on Youtube!

That’s what I did last night because I was a lot more tired than I had expected to be. I tuned into The Fire & Glory Outpouring while it was happening last night. I got on a little late at 7:46 and was with them until they turned the audio off hours later when the guest speaker (guest blesser?), Ivan Roman, went from person to person blessing them by prophesying over them.

If you know me you realize that this style of worship is not something I’ve been practicing very long. I only started down this path in April of 2016 (this year!) and I continue to get more and more comfortable with worshiping God in this new-to-me, God-and-me-self-stretching, comfort zone-expanding style.

What’s the best way to watch The Outpouring live online? I’m glad you asked! But, some of you are not going to like this. Really ready?

DON’T multitask while watching.

If you have to get up and use the bathroom or get some water or check on the puppy or whatever, then ok. Turn up the volume, go do it and come right back without getting distracted.

What you really want to do is PARTICIPATE in worship.

I found myself saying “Amen” at least a couple times last night because I wasn’t merely “watching a show”.

My “rules” about watching are simply to help you get the most out of watching (PARTICIPATING) by having a real worship experience when you can’t make it to The Outpouring.

Soon The Fire & Glory Outpouring will be moving to Summit Church across from Cal State San Marcos. You can still catch it through Sunday night at Heart of God Church in Rancho Bernardo. Whether you attend before or after the move it will be Wednesday through Sunday nights at 7:30.

There’s also something you can get more details about at 6 pm on Wednesdays by visiting Living At His Feet Ministries to check the schedule.

The video below is from last week when I attended in Rancho Bernardo. If you watch you will eventually see me lay down on the floor in worship face down. That wasn’t a rule. I simply felt led to do it. Talk about stretching myself in worship! That was definitely a “new dance” for me.

God Bless You!

Be Filled With Wonder!
