Revolution and Revelation

OXYGEN VOLUME 13Thank 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!

Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life

Here is a glimpse into spontaneous worship at a non-denominational evening Singspiration, Sunday night, 6 pm, at the Anchorage Moravian Church.  No one told the folks to stand and worship; it was prompted by a move of the Holy Spirit.  Such freedom of worship in “Spirit & Truth!”  The familiar Moravian liturgical service is at 11:30 am, Sunday.  Everyone welcome!

Victory in Christ That Never Fails

maria magruder-krinock
Special worship opportunity with Dr. Maria Krinock will be held at the AncMC located at 2150 E. Dowling Road on October 15 & 16, 2016, at 6 pm. Dr. Krinock is the author of a recent book entitled “Your Unseen Enemy Revealed”, published in spring of 2013. Our speakers is well qualified to speak on Spiritual Warfare and the personal victory we can have through Jesus Christ. The public is cordially invited to attend to hear uplifted words from the Word of God, receive prayer for healing, deliverance and salvation!

The following is from Dr. Maria Krinock website.
Sister Krinock is President of Lifeline Outreach Int’l

After the Lord Jesus brought Maria out of a life of addiction, suicide and depression, and into freedom, God called her to begin to share His love to the uttermost parts of the earth. Maria Magruder-Krinock answered the call of God in 1997, while living in Anchorage Alaska and began Lifeline Outreach Itn’l. As she traveled the villages in Alaska, she saw the great need for the power and love of God to be manifest in the peoples lives with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Maria not only began to deliver the Gospel in demonstration of power, but also began to fly out food and supplies to the villages. Many of the villages have no roads, and therefore can only be reached by way of boat or plane. This makes it very difficult for village life, as these types of villages have to fly into town just to go grocery shopping or they have to hunt in order to have a food supply for the year. By bringing food and supplies to the village in bulk as a gift, the whole village would turn out for the meetings. This caused a great increase of salvations, miracles, healing and deliverance.

In 2001, the Lord sent Maria to Elko and Reno, Nevada to minister to the surrounding First Nations Reservations. Holding soul-winning crusades in the gym on the reservations, the Lord blessed the outreaches with a plethora of food, goods and toys to distribute to the people. Through Lifeline Outreach Int’l over $20, 000 worth of food was distributed and over $5000 worth of toys to the children and literally hundreds of people received Christ during this time.

In October 2002, Maria relocated the ministry from Nevada to Pensacola, Florida to study at International Miracle Institute and be a part of the Miracle Faith Apostolic Global Church. Maria had the honor and privilege of receiving a greater revelation of the Word of God and impartation of the gift of working of miracles on a much greater level than ever before, due to the teaching of Drs. Christian and Robin Harfouche. Dr. Christian & Robin Harfouche are Maria’s father and mother in the faith and remains under their 5-fold apostolic gift for the last 12+ years to present.

Flowing strongly in the gift of working of miracles, Maria has a passion to see the body of Christ living in the realm of victory, no matter what opposing circumstance they may be facing. Maria equips the body of Christ with a biblical word of supply that ignites the very heart of people to go to the next level in their walk with Christ.

In the last hour we live in, her and her husband Conrad are more determined than ever to see the harvest of souls for the Kingdom of God. Maria has spent fifteen years of study of the Word of God under Drs. Christian and Robin Harfouche, and licensed through International Miracle Institute with a Doctorate of Divinity and a Doctorate of Ministry.

Maria’s home church is Miracle Faith Apostolic Global Church. Maria and her husband, Conrad have just recently relocated to Reno, Nevada. Together they have started a diaper bank to help parents in need and minister the love of Jesus while also traveling out of Reno to other regions of the United States holding miracle and soul winning crusades with their ministry, Lifeline Outreach Int’l.

About

Worship with Author Paul Wemmer, October 2, 2016

3rd Day of Holy Spirit Jubilee at the Anchorage Moravian Church, October 2, 2016! It is truly a blessing to have The Rev. Paul Wemmer (and his wife, Jean) as our special guest speaker.

Brother Paul Wemmer is author of a recently published book entitled “Count Zinzendorf and the spirit of the Moravians”. This book will be available soon at the Anchorage Moravian Church. Here is an excerpt from his book from Amazon.com:

“Some have heard about the Moravians, but even less have heard about Count Zinzendorf. He was a man of prayer, a man of passion for the “Martermann,” the Man of Sorrows. He could preach all day without tiring. During a sermon he could talk himself into such exhilaration about his Savior that frequently, in rhythmic staccato, he would spontaneously break into impromptu rhyming lyrics, somewhat like the oral poets of ancient Greek and modern rappers. He was an itinerant vagabond for Christ. He urged the Moravians to pray unceasingly, and they prayed unremittingly for over a hundred years. In worship services men and women were separated, but he was instrumental in infusing such a Christian love among the Brethren that he had to advise them not to kiss so loudly that it “schmatzt,” made a loud smacking sound, when they exchanged the kiss of peace. He entreated the Moravians without coercing to have a burden for lost souls. He wrote that he himself was not so much a God-fearing, but a God-joyful person. Yet he knew suffering. He was harassed as a boy in a boarding school; called a beast by a friend he protected; greeted by a jester in the royal court of Berlin, because the king thought he was a fool; exiled from his beloved homeland; accused of gross misconduct by newspapers in Pennsylvania; and lost nine of his twelve children prematurely. But Zinzendorf knew where to get his strength. Even in his early youth he developed an intimacy with the Lamb of God through prayer. This is a story of persecution, of dissension, of Spirit-filled boldness, of daring enterprises, of dying on mission fields and of congenial relations among the Brethren. The story of the Moravians in the eighteenth century reminds us perhaps of the chronicle of the early Christians in Acts.” count-zinzendorf-book

We Need Jesus Now More Than Ever

A brief commentary from Pastor William Nicholson: Are you sailing in story weather? These are difficult days for the church and ourselves individually. Times will come when – “We must take heed, when you think you stand, lest you fall” (I Corinthians 10:12). Even though we are living in Christ, totally committed to Christ, if we are not careful, we may be drifting towards the edge and fall.

We should all be seeking the Lord as to the revelation of His Will! I am crying out to God to show me more of what He wants me to do. I hope you can join me as we all shout to God to move and bless us!!! So we can do more for Him!!!

What can we do to bring increased demonstration and revelation of God’s Kingdom? Especially when because of so much relative peace, security, and for many prosperity, we do not know the Lord or His power as fully as we should. We do not want to be overcome by the philosophies of today, the humanism, secularism, and traditionalism. Or maybe because of the business of work, constant struggle, and losing bible study and real intimate prayer time, without knowing it, you can become a victim of the enemy who wants to “steal, kill, and destory” (John 10:10).

More of Christ; more of relationship in Christ and one another should be our aim, daily! More of His Spirit; more prevailing prayer that God will reveal His Will for us, and that we move forward obediently to do His Will.

We’ve heard others admonish us prophetically. As believers in Christ, we must remain unified and overcome spiritual darkness by the blood of the Lamb. God is indeed talking to us, today! “These are critical times and it’s going to get worse!” The enemy is rising. Our unity is wonderful and will help us win. When one falls, thank God there are those willing to lift you up!!!

The song, “We Need Jesus Now More Than Ever” has been on my heart. It is very special song. May it encourage you today. Amen!!!
