Lakeland Airport Revival Photos

May 13, 2008

Lakeland Airport Revival Photos in Lakeland, Florida of the Florida Revival and Healing Outpouring Here are the much awaited Lakeland Airport revival photos.

Follow this link.

Todd Bentley was on fire, as was the rest of Fresh Fire ministries, Roy Fields, David Tomberlin, Jim Drown, and the rest of the team.

God Tv (god.tv) delivered another global broadcast of this history-making event: 15,000 people from around the world stormed the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport for a gorgeous, all-night meeting that went down in the history books for the shear fact of exposure.

In a divine appointment at lunch today running into Pastor Stephen Strader, he mentioned that now ALL the Christian media is attempting to broadcast, and that CIM was broadcasting the revival in the later parts of the afternoon around the country.

The media delivery is what sets this revival apart!

Also be praying for a new location for the revival as they consider obtaining an inflatable dome to house the hungry souls! Stay tuned for more details.

Lakeland Center Revival

May 12, 2008

This should be called the Lakeland Center Revival! Why? Because for the next 14 days the Florida Revival and Healing Outpouring will be rooted at the Lakeland Center again.

The time at the Lakeland Linder Airport was amazing, and the photos will be coming soon on how powerful it was! (For now, check out these latest revival images from the Lakeland Center.)

But with being in the same location for a period of time the presence should be intense.

Randy Clark visited the Florida Revival and Healing Outpouring at the Lakeland Center with his daughter.Many of the major ministers over the last few decades are visiting. Here, Randy Clark and his daughter came out to visit with Todd Bentley and Fresh Fire ministries, as well as to bless it. He mentioned how similar both moves were, and how uniquely God is moving.

They, like many others, just come to soak in the presence. The Lord is also manifesting mighty miracles in many individuals lives in the areas. I have had two friends starting to flow in prophetic dreams again. I myself have seen more divine appointments in the last 2 weeks than in the entire last 2 years.

God is up to something! If you can, come on down to Lakeland, Florida. Visit us at the Lakeland Center, or at Lakeland Linder Airport, or wherever you can.

Come and soak in the worship of Roy Fields. Come and listen to the powerful words of faith from Todd Bentley. Come and network with the brothers and sisters who have come for a touch from the Holy Spirit.

This is a powerful time!

Obedience III: The Little Things

November 1, 2007

The Little ThingsThe start of obedience is obeying in the little things.

Thank you, Captain Obvious.

Look, how to identify the little things is a major stumbling block for many Christians. How do we become sensitive and respond to God’s instructions for the little things?

To be honest, many of us are looking to the horizon for an answer to a problem. All the while God has placed the answer in your heart. You would know this if you had a) gotten quiet, and b) listened. Now is just the part of implementation: obedience.

We know it takes great faith to be a missionary or heal people.
We know it takes great faith to move mountains.
We know it takes great faith to speak in tongues or prophesy.

But, when was the last time that you heard God tell you to do one of these things? It is rare for Him to do so. (For the record, I believe that entire lives should be full of the miraculous.)

I bet the more likely case is that if I were to ask you the last thing that God asked of you, you would tell me that it was a small thing. And I bet you struggled to complete it.

I sure did! I told the truth a day or so ago when I mentioned that God wanted me to just walk over and tell a girl I did not know that God loved her. To this moment I regret it.

What next thing would God have asked of me were I to have been, and continued to be, obedient in that little thing?

Compared to preaching to millions, as Rhinehart Bonnke does in Africa, crossing the room to say 3 words (‘God loves you’) is EASY! Yet, I was not faithful in that little thing. (Wait a minutes, isn’t that the type of thing I have been praying that God would ask of me? If not that, then what?!)

And I am not talking about “small beginnings. Despise not small beginnings.” I am talking about our habit of hearing God for small things is what leads us to hear Him for big things. If we are not sensitive enough to hear Him, believe it was Him, and obey Him for the tiniest of acts, we are definitely going to doubt that “inner voice” when He asks us to do freaky things.

If you look at 1st Corinthians 13:1-4, you get a great depiction of the difference between big and little things.

You will quickly recognize this passage as “The Love Chapter”; that chapter about love.

What does love have to do with obedience, Grant?

If you look at verse 4 of this chapter, you get this:

Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant…

It goes on. Again, you are familiar with this chapter, I am sure. (If not, open your local Bible and read it twice!) The point is that to say that being loving is being patient, you are seeing the ‘little things’ in action.

How often has a distressed wife, about to leave her husband, exclaim “He doesn’t do the little things”? How often has a husband felt the same way?

Often, when the little things are being done, love is nearby.
When a husband encourages his wife for her success instead of envying her, love is nearby.
When a man buys groceries for the poor guy on the corner, love is nearby.

When we are bold enough to do the little things, the things we know we ought to even without a voice from heaven, we are experiencing love; as God defines it.

That is perhaps why Mother Teresa is known as the Saint of Small Things (her canonization is not official yet). She was full of loving acts. Her loving acts, an accumulation of many small things, are what make us marvel at the degree of her obedience to God.

Find the courage to do the little things today that He is asking of you. It may be uncomfortable. It may put you out, but there is nothing more important that implementing obedience that on the littlest of things. Only when we live a life of little things, will God call us to be obedient in the big.


No Faith in the House

October 31, 2007

Can I ask a question?

You just did.

Thank you, wise guy.

Today I made a commitment to God that I would attempt to hear His voice, and if I thought I heard it I would act on it. The down side to this: I had not rallied the courage it would take to man up to His request.

I did this as a young Christian; impulsively act on what I thought I heard the Lord say.

But this morning, when He asked me to walk over and tell this one girl, a total stranger, that He loved her, I froze. I will tell you right here that I did not do it.

But here is the line of questions:

Do I no longer believe that it was Him, the Creator of the Universe? (If I really, truly, deep-down believed that God was speaking,  I would listen, right?)

Does fear outweigh faith in my life?

If I really had faith, would the miraculous not happen all the time? Would you not always be in uncomfortable situations where only faith could carry you through?

If we believed that God is who He said He is, and can do what He said He can do, wouldn’t we all be moving in the life that He said we could live?

And (here is the question I wanted to ask you) why can’t the leaders in our churches, ministries and fellowships admit that they do not believe that He is who He said He is?

I admit it! If God is true, and His word is true, and what He says about Himself and how we should be living is true, AND WE ARE NOT SEEING THE RESULTS THAT HE DESCRIBED, THE PROBLEM IS ME AND YOU! I admit that there must be a problem with us and our faith.

So, why can’t our leaders admit the same?


Arise, O Sleeper

October 22, 2007

Ephesians 5:13-16

13 “But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible. 14 for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, ‘Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.’ 15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.”

This has been a profound scripture for me recently. I find that when I get further from God, I tend to sleep a lot more. I tend to ignore the cause of Christ on my life. I am the living dead. My purpose and vision is not as clear. Things are fuzzy. Like a foggy morning that blocks the sun; you could say that I am walking, well, in darkness.

But, when I come realize this fact and admit that I am in sin (by my mere separation from God instead of a particular sinful act), it shines light on it. And, as it says, that which becomes visible IS light.

That means that in the instant that I shine light on my wrong path, my path become visible and thus, light. I am instantly in God’s grace again.

I also realize that other things in my life fall into order. Waking up early to write about God, study His word, planning my day and working out all seem to come back together with ease. Struggling to rise at 4:30 a.m. is gone. I seem to just hop out of bed ready for my day.

That is what it is to be ‘awake’; to rise with purpose, to know one’s destiny (or at least be at peace and full of faith that God knows your destiny.)

Why all of this rising, and asleep and awake? Because there is only one commodity that we lack, and that is time.

Though we are, all of us (the righteous and the unrighteous), eternal beings, there is only a brief time that we can make our stand. This life is a proving ground where we wave our colors, be they the colors of light or colors of darkness.

We stand here in the temporal to determine how we shall spend the rest of our eternal existence.

As it says in verse 16, we must make the best use of our time. We must be sure to walk in wisdom in our short time on this earth in this time.

This is what it means to Awake, O Sleeper! Arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you!!

I encourage you. Rise today! Raise your banner in your heart once again that it may blow in the wind of God.

Regain the purpose of your heart, so that Christ may shine on you today, and always.


Holy vs. Common; Clean vs. Unclean.

October 18, 2007

“They are to teach my people to difference between the holy and the common and show them how to distinguish between the unclean and the clean.”

Ezekiel 44:23 

In Ezekiel 44, we find that he is having another wacky vision. (Crazy prophets, huh?)

Here, though, he hits on something really profound. As Christians, we know that we are a holy priesthood (Exodus 19:6). We know that we are to be set apart in all of our ways.

So are we? Do our lives show the people around the difference of the holy and the common? Is there a difference from the way you do business and the way others do business? Is there a difference from the way you treat your family than the way others do? Do we live in a way that others can better distinguish between the unclean and the clean?

Thought for the day: observe yourself throughout the day.

Look for whether or not your life is really that much different than the life of those around you. Ask yourself if you are living in a way that illustrates to the people around you the difference between the holy and the common; the clean and the unclean.
