Revival and the Kingdom of God!

Revival Report From New Beginnings Fellowship
in Hernando, Florida
October 31, 2009
Dear Friend,

The Finger of God

Revival and the Kingdom of God!

Last evening concluded our 16th week of extended meetings in what we are calling, "Spreading the Fire!"  What a week we had!  God moved in such powerful ways!  One of the important elements of the ministry here is that we are more and more releasing other people to flow into their ministry gifts.  Our ultimate purpose is to advance the Kingdom of God into every area of our region.  Therefore our goal is to not build another traditional church, rather to expand the Kingdom in our region.  That means that God wishes to release and use all of His Kids into the fullness of their Kingdom functions.   This is beginning to take root into the hearts of our people.  I love to sit back and watch these folks move out into their gifts!  I love it!!!

God is pouring Kingdom Revival out on us!  Last night's meeting was just one example.  The worship was intense, the people were full of joy, dancing and celebrating the greatness of their King!  It was awesome!  Then came a message in tongues and the Sister who brought that word,  right away shared the interpretation...."The Lord says, that if you wish to see this revival move even deeper, then it's time to repent of your secret sins."  The only thing that I could think of at that moment was recalling the powerful altar calls at Brownsville Assembly of God in Pensecola, FL a few years ago, with people running to the altar to repent.  That is what happened next, dozens of people came, not being begged or coerced, but almost ran to the front of the building, falling on their knees crying out to God!  People were being set free!  The issue of abortion was brought up by the Lord, and the repentance even went deeper. 

One of our Guys, Bill Tosh, brought a fresh load of manna with a word that he preached, sharing how God brought him through amazing times of deliverance.  As he ministered, praying for people, God began to set them free.  Demons were manifested and dealt with by a very strong anointing from God!

What a meeting!  What a week!  Even the web streaming of our meetings is creating quite a stir, with people viewing from all over the country including Canada!

Thankfully, I'm thrilled to announce that Week #17 begins tomorrow morning, Sunday Nov. 1,  at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time.  Then Wednesday through Friday nights, the meetings begin at 7:00 p.m.

This church is in revival, however it's just beginning.  The prophetic words that we are getting from many of you, from around the nation is, "Don't stop!  Keep pressing in as the full breakthrough is at hand!" 

One last thing... there is a lot of teaching these days on the Kingdom of God.  I love it!  I am fully persuaded that this is what is going on.  However, I am also fully persuaded that in order to get the Church fully functioning within the Kingdom, it's going to take a strong move of the Holy Spirit!  After all, God says that it's "not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit says the Lord!"

True revival is not just having great meetings in a "church building" someplace.  Rather it is complete raising from the dead of the Body of Christ!  Then we will be and do what God created us to be and do!  Transformation is coming forth.  I want to be right in the dead center of it all! 

I like this picture lots!

It's of two of my Sisters, resting in the Lord as He does a work within them!  Can you see by the expression on their faces that God is at work?

Yep... I like this lots!  I'm thrilled to be a part of what God is doing here!  I'm honored that 11 months ago He called us to be a part of this great move of God!  Yep... I like this lots!!!!

Kingdom blessings!

Is it Wednesday Yet?





Hi All,

I have a huge problem!  The people of New Beginnings Fellowship are creating a great problem for me!  They keep asking me, "Is it Wednesday yet?"  Can you believe it???  They really don't like taking a couple of nights off from meetings!  We actually have some people that have attended just about every meeting in 16 weeks!  One Brother has only missed one and that was the night that his car broke down!  You know, in order for people to feel like this, it means that something must really be happening in these meetings!  
I have to admit... something is happening!  We all know that people, "vote with their feet!"  I know that if we have another week like last week we'll all be blessed out of our socks!  Wow!

Here's the schedule for this week:  Week #16 of "Spreading the Fire!"

Tonight (Wed.)..... Our own Leon Ellis will minister.  You don't want to miss this meeting!  Leon's ministry is awesome!
Thurday. night.... I'll be ministering
Friday night.... Our own Bill Tosh will minister.  And you don't want to miss this meeting either!  Bill is full of the Fire of God!!!

Finally here are a few of my notes from Sunday mornings message on "Creating Critical Mass!"  These are some words of direction to all of us that are seeking Revival and Kingdom Transformation in our region.  I feel that this is worth sharing with you this morning.   (You can view the entire message archived on our webpage:  www.nbfhernando.com and click on the Podcasts button and follow the directions)

Scroll down... and be greatly blessed!

A.     This week, I feel that God has confirmed to us all, that NBF is quickly approaching “Critical Mass!” 

-How many of you would agree with me?

-Something is happening in our church!  Glenn Bleakney told me after Friday night’s meeting that he feels that something is about to explode here! 

-Share some of the week’s happenings! (Testimonies of the people… what happened this week?)

 

B.      Here’s some practical advice while we’re heading in this very powerful direction!

James 4:6-8 (New Living Translation)

6 But he gives us even more grace to stand against such evil desires. As the Scriptures say,

   “God opposes the proud
      but favors the humble.”[a]

 7 So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world.

James 4:6-8 (The Message)

 4-6You're cheating on God. If all you want is your own way, flirting with the world every chance you get, you end up enemies of God and his way. And do you suppose God doesn't care? The proverb has it that "he's a fiercely jealous lover." And what he gives in love is far better than anything else you'll find. It's common knowledge that "God goes against the willful proud; God gives grace to the willing humble."

 7-10So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he'll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it's the only way you'll get on your feet.

-So while we are building towards “Critical Mass” here are some steps to take:

1.  v. 6:  Walk in all of God’s “grace” that you can get for yourself!

2.  Stand against “evil desires” especially pride! 

-This is a very important step… Folks… let us NEVER get prideful or big headed about what God is doing here!  Several times this week as God was moving so strongly, I just walked around the platform watching God move and just declared over and over… “Oh Lord my God… HOW GREAT THOU ART!”

-You and I must NEVER lay claim or title to anything that God is doing at NBF!

-The words of John the Baptist:

John 3:29-31 (New Living Translation)

29 It is the bridegroom who marries the bride, and the best man is simply glad to stand with him and hear his vows. Therefore, I am filled with joy at his success. 30 He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.

 31 “He has come from above and is greater than anyone else. We are of the earth, and we speak of earthly things, but he has come from heaven and is greater than anyone else.[a]

3.   “Resist the devil and he will flee from you!”

4.   "Come close to God and He will come close to you!”

5.   Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the          world!”

      -Ask the Lord if this is indeed the case with you?  Is your loyalty to God divided?

 

Close:

Friends we are very possibly in for the greatest ride of our life!  Anything can happen!  I just have to believe that when the first atomic scientists saw the results of the first atomic test bomb, they completely had their socks blown off!  They knew that something big was going to happen, but they had no idea at just how big it this bomb was going to be!  Just think all of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were completely destroyed by a “Critical Mass!”  Well…. Just turn it around… make it positive… Think of what is going to happen here in Citrus County when we reach this “Critical Mass!”

 

Are you ready???????

Revival Update

I only have time for a real quick update... Here it is...The Fire is falling at New Beginnings Fellowship!  We begin Week #16 of our "Spreading the Fire!" meetings tomorrow morning.  Then meetings continue next Wed. - Fri. evening at 7:00 p.m.  Last night ended Week #15 and all I can say is...WOW!  Glenn Bleakney did an outstanding job of ministry and we spoke after the meeting about having him back for a few nights just as soon as possible.  I'm attaching a few pictures of last night's meeting.

Remember, tell your out of town friends to, "Come on down!"  If they can't tell them that they can watch the webcast live (10:00 a.m. Sunday and 7:00 p.m. weeknights) or check out each meeting as it is recorded and archived.  To view go to our website: www.nbfhernando.com and then click on the Podcasts button.

Be blessed and please keep us all in prayer.  We are about to hit, "Critical Mass!"

Love to you!

The Fire Continues to Fall!

Last night's meeting was another Holy Ghost Bomb!
 
We are currently in our 15th week of extended meetings at New Beginnings Fellowship, in Hernando, Florida.  There is no end in sight for these meetings!  Just when we think, "Can it get any better?"  It does!

Friday we had 9 of our ladies leave for a Ladies Retreat on St. Simmons Island in Georgia.  I felt to pray for them, anoint them with oil and tell them that when they returned that they would be ministering in our Wednesday night's meeting.  (last night, Oct. 21)
9 Lady Revivalists!

        The Nine Lady Revivalists preparing to minister!

Each one of the Gals shared their testimony on what had happened over the weekend's retreat ministry.  The testimonies were awesome!  They have been drinking at the Well of Revival for nearly 14 weeks, and the weekend Retreat was just enough to create total critical mass within each one.  Last night they were charged to capacity and were totally ready to release ministry to anyone within range!

Here is what happened....  A Holy Ghost Bomb was dropped!  There are no words that can totally convey what took place.  All I can say is that if you were not in that meeting you just plain missed out on one of the most powerful encounter with God that I've ever experienced ANYWHERE!

Again, I repeat.... I have very few words that can fully describe what took place last night!  The word, "Awesome!" just doesn't do it!  All I can say is that God showed up and worked through some of my dear Sisters!  And... I LOVE IT!  Something very special is taking place at New Beginnings Fellowship!  The main thing is that people are being released to ministry.  They love it!  You know what I did last night?  NOTHING!  I didn't have to be the big shot pastor, or any such thing.  I just watched God use the Body of Christ to do the work of the ministry.  And... Boy was I fulfilled!  I was like a proud papa at the time of holding his first born child!

I wish to thank a dear Sister... Becky Burke for heading up this venture!  "Beck"... you're the greatest!

God is still on the move in Hernando, Florida.  You know there is actually no end in sight to these meetings!  We keep pressing in for the "More of the Lord!"  If you are any where near us come by and jump in.  If you are far away, you might wish to pray and ask the Lord if you are supposed to come to Florida!  You might be surprised at what He tells you!   If you need directions or lodging, let us know and we'll let you know what is available.  You also can get more information on our webpage: www.nbfhernando.com

Many blessings!
