Consecration through Fire (with Vinesong)

June 29, 2020

I want to challenge you to live in the Fire of God, to re-consecrate your life to Jesus. When did you last hear God speak and you replied, "here I am Lord"? When Moses said, "Here I am", God began to deal with him. The spark from the Fire got into the soul of Moses and restored him. I want that Fire in my life. I want something new from God. I want to get into the Fire where it's hot; I want to feel the heat, the power and the glory of God.

How do we know God is with us?

How do we know God is with us?

June 26, 2020

How do we know God is with us when we are in the midst of trial and tribulation? Moses asked this very question, to which God responded in the most unusual way: ‘I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain’ (Exodus 3.12). You will know God is with you, when, after you have come through your tribulation and are living in victory, you will look back and see the Hand of God guiding and directing you. God will say, ‘I led, I was in control; I Am.’

In retrospect, when we look back on our lives – and this is the advantage I have at my age – the one thing I am conscious of, as I look back over my life, every step, every decision, everything that happened, was part of God’s plan and purpose: to the extent that looking back, I need to give God the glory for all that He has done in my life. – This is the evidence of God: it is in the retrospect that He was leading us.

The Power of Jesus to calm storms (with Vinesong)

The Power of Jesus to calm storms (with Vinesong)

Most of us experience some powerful storms in our lives. That is why we need the reality of the Man who can conquer them. Let me challenge you: what kind of Man is Jesus? Wherever I go, He’s in the boat. I’d rather be in a ‘storm’ with Jesus than living in calm and peace without Him. I want you to know this real Jesus in your life.

The ever increasing glory of God (with Vinesong)

The ever increasing glory of God (with Vinesong)

I want you to experience the glory of God; to behold Him face to face. During those months of torture and suffering in a communist prison, I had an experience which transformed my life; it was as if I experienced heaven in that prison cell. Yes, I have seen the power of God in my life! Not some emotional experience in a conference, but step by step walking closer to God – my teenage cry for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, my two cancers, the prison – and many other problems and miracles. Every step is another miracle towards experiencing the power and glory of God!

In the midst of tribulation

In the midst of tribulation

June 15, 2020

Where is God when we are in the midst of tribulation? - He is right there with us, a very present help in our times of trouble. It is easy to feel God's presence when we are on the mountain top, celebrating His goodness; but the Scripture implies that whilst He is present in our good times, He is very present in our distress. Some years ago I was invited to speak at a conference. The theme was how we can know God, how we can come into His presence. I took as my Scripture Deuteronomy 4:29, 'If from where you are you shall seek the Lord Your God you shall find Him'. You will find God when you are in tribulation, when all the problems of life have come on you. God will use the very circumstances you are in to work a miracle in a demonstration of His Power. 

Prayer for our families (with Vinesong)

Prayer for our families (with Vinesong)

June 12, 2020

It is so important to pray for our loved ones. As you know, not only am I a father, but I am a grandfather and great-grandfather, so I feel a burden to pray for their futures: join with me in prayer as we pray blessing upon all our families at this time of distress in our nation. The Scripture teaches, 'The Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments' (Deuteronomy 7.9). What a wonderful promise!

The joy of answered prayer (with Vinesong)

The joy of answered prayer (with Vinesong)

June 8, 2020

Oh the joy of answered prayer; the relief of burdens lifted and the excitement of new beginnings. We have a God of power, glory and miracles - He is a prayer-answering God. We can all have this relationship with Him. If you are sick, or crippled, in despair, alone, whoever you are, wherever you are - God will hear you, God will answer your prayer like He has answered mine! It is not about religion; it is not about ceremony - it is about finding a new reality, a new relationship with Jesus. I know God is alive and delights in answering our prayers.

Open our eyes and live in the faith of the coming miracle (with Vinesong)

Open our eyes and live in the faith of the coming miracle (with Vinesong)

June 5, 2020

My prayer is that God would open our eyes so that we live in the faith of the coming miracle. We need to get before the Lord and ask Him to open our eyes so that we can see - see beyond the constraints of today, the tribulations of tomorrow. I am living beyond every hindrance. I'm seeing the light of the Kingdom and the Glory of God. O God, open our eyes and give us a glimpse of the Glory of the Heavenly Jerusalem, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Seeing beyond the impossible!

Seeing beyond the impossible!

June 1, 2020

We need to have a clear vision of God's plan and purposes. Something tangible. The Bible instructs us to write it down and make it plain to read. All my life I've been working towards a goal; something I see in my spirit. As I look back over my life and ministry, I see what God has done, and because of this, I have an absolute confidence that God is going to continue to lead and direct my steps.
