Ecclesia on Pentecost
Sun, Jul 20, 2014
The work of the Holy Spirit is first internal before external. He changes your behavior; realigns your work/expertise with His word i.e. your belief system changes. When the Holy Spirit comes into your life He gives you boldness. The anointing of the Holy Spirit: i) Preaching the gospel to the poor - Preach at all times, if necessary use words. ii) Heals the broken hearted iii) Proclaims liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind iv) Proclaims the acceptable year of the Lord (Jubilee)

A life of conviction is stronger than a life of faith. 4 Convictions of the church in Acts 2: 1) They were convinced that they were called by God. 2) They were convinced that they were called out of the world. 3) They were called above the world into fellowship with God. 4) They were called for the world.

When the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you do the things you never did before. Consider it a favour when God asks you to do something. It is grace when God choses you among many He could have went to. The only thing that can happen to the will of God is delay, it can never fail. God takes care of His plans and He is focused to see His will come to pass. The church exists to bring people to Christ, if there are no new people coming in, then the church has lost its meaning. When last did you bring the new person in the kingdom of God? Do not lose a meaning to win souls. Wonder why church is not moving, it has lost appetite to move out. The Holy Spirit gives the appetite to win souls. A united front is a blessed front; unity is where the power is. Sometimes we are united without plan. Never underestimate the power of planning. Moving forward with the Holy Spirit!

The only power that changes lives is the Holy Spirit. The Source of life is the only power that can change lives. A church without the Holy Spirit can not impact the city. Church is a place of people who are valuable to God. Reasons for the existence of church: to be a life-giving center, to bring understanding and to bring love where there is hatred.
The Great Strategy
Sun, Jun 08, 2014
The two huge mountains in Christianity are the Great commandment and the Great commission. A) Great commandment: Love God with all your mind (intellect), soul (feelings/emotions ) , heart (will) & strength and love your neighbour as yourself. Show love, live in love and demonstrate love. B) Great commission: Don't evangelise but disciple. To evangelise is to proclaim, to disciple is to make into the image and likeness of Christ. The bridge between the two mountains is the Church. Jesus started and the Body will continue with the work.

It is time for societal reform
Tue, May 27, 2014
The church has become sympathetic (passive), but in this season God is raising an empathetic (active) church because it’s time to change things! First way to effect societal reform: Raise disciples. Disciples walk in the principles of God; we are not a group of followers. Acts 1 speaks of Christians because the people who were the reference were doing what Jesus Christ did. The church is not supposed to be a high maintenance centre handing out miracles but a perfecting centre for societal reform.
Societal Reform
Mon, May 26, 2014
Our Mandate is to rule on earth and testify in heaven Reasons for not being effective in taking the kingdoms and changing the earth: 1) Salvation is for dominance on earth but religious preachers are saving people for heaven 2) Religious preachers have perpetuated that we should sectorize ourselves from the world - Yet God has called us to invade the world not get out of the world. Jesus prayed for us not to be separated from the world yet the world describes us as a sect... we have separated ourselves 3) Religious preachers have taught us that the power of God was meant to be used within the 4 walls of the church
Taking the Kingdoms back
Sun, May 25, 2014
Jesus didn't only die for you to have salvation and be in the waiting room for heaven. Salvation is the door. Many are in a rush to get to heaven yet our mandate is to rule in every sector of society here on earth. It is not enough for you to have salvation. Its time to penetrate the systems of the world.
