Thank you Brother Ron Moo, AncMC member for sharing (and blowing the Shofar ushering in the New Year) at the New Years 1st Singspiration, January 1, 2017. You said that 2017 is to be a year of “Revolution and Revelation”! Yes, I agree – truly, the past year has been a preparatory time for the Church in Mission! But the future is going to be incredible! And the devil, his demons and even the legalistic Church will oppose!
Speaking on behalf of United Alaska, sadly, so much of the traditional Churches have lost the sense of Mission in winning lost and suffering souls for the Kingdom. In Anchorage, Alaska, the Churches have not made a difference in our society. Crime and Addictions are getting worse around us. It seems the world is getting darker. The traditional church so often is part of the problem rather than of the solution. In the past year, thankfully, part of the preparation that our United Alaska Churches and Fellowships have gone through is teaching on: growing spiritually in Christ, deliverance ministry, learning about the person and work of the Holy Spirit, the purpose and operation of dreams and visions in the Church, overcoming demons in our lives through spiritual warfare and putting on the full armor of God, and NOW, at the Anchorage Moravian Church, we are finishing up studying and teaching on the Five-fold Ministry of Eph. 4:11.
I believe the aforementioned biblical teachings are necessary, so that 2017 will indeed be A TIME OF IMPLEMENTION – a time of “Revolution and Revelation”, so that every home in Alaska will hear the gospel. I think what God’s Spirit is saying is that as He is bringing together incredible human resources among us. He is giving His empowered Church what it requires, so that it can truly make a difference in God’s world. And fulfill His will in fulfilling the great commission of our Lord Jesus Christ. A revelation I’ve received is that, today, we must go back to the simplicity of sharing the Good News of the Gospel!
Significantly over the last year or so, we have sent missionaries to the Philippines, to Mexico, and recently to the Pacific Northwest and Honduras. United Alaska Evangelist Abraham George just finished going to the 100th village in Alaska in December 2016 to share “Jesus is the Only Way, the Truth and the Life”. His goal is to each all 260 villages in Alaska. A couple of other missionaries that are part of our Church family also recently returned back from Bangkok. A revolution in itself, is that currently, we are coming alive to the Gospel and we are literally living out the book of Acts. God is not only preparing us. He is sending us to do His work in a world where much of Christiandom has lost the importance of bringing the simple gospel in the presence and power of the Holy Ghost, with signs and wonders following!
God is speaking to us prophetically through His people and His Word that we must move out to bring His love and eternal salvation message before Christ comes in the clouds with glory. God is revealing His Will to us as we enter into a 40 day period of fasting and praying, which began, yesterday, January 1, 2017. God is shaking us up to do more! It is a time for Revolution and Revelation, so that we will be even more obedient in expanding the Kingdom of God, while there is yet time!
