Spiritual Awakening With Three People Who Saw The Spiritual World

People Who Saw the Spiritual World Testify This is Bishop Nicholson.  God is moving in incredible ways, today.  Even through children God is making the reality of heaven and hell something that we must deal with, if one does not know Jesus Christ as Savior.  Capturing the reality of heaven and hell is what is happening at the Anchorage Moravian Church during it’s three evening – “What’s Your Story” Singspiration, April 21-23, 2017, 6 pm, nightly. As a minister of the gospel I’ve done many funerals.  All you have to do when you look at the faces of the people there, especially the unbelievers and you will know that they are asking the question and they do not know the answer, “Where are they now?  What actually happens after death?  Is there really a literal heaven?….a literal hell? As someone has said, “I don’t care how much education you have or how many degrees hang on your wall, a face-to-face confrontation with the awesome reality of death will make even the most earthly-minded person stop and think.  The problem is that peoople who don’t know or respect the authority of the Word of God have no basis for finding answers … Continue reading

The Cheerful Gift Giver

God is the lover of a cheerful gift giver (Let each one give [thoughtfully and with purpose] just as he has decided in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver [and delights in the one whose heart is in his gift]. 2 Corinthians 9:7 AMP)? God Himself is The Greatest  Cheerful Gift Giver. Be delighted in the LORD always and gift for HIS purpose. God can manage it. He gives life. He gives breath. He gives good gifts to all according to the desires of the heart (Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart. Psalm 37:4 AMP). When in doubt about your gifting, ask The Father (The Manager), The Son (The Lover of Operations), and the Holy Spirit (The Worker); Father what do You think about this gift? Jesus do You love this gift? Holy Spirit what are You saying about this gift (C. Ricker, T. Cullen, 2016, Josiah’s Fire, pp 136)? The Father will manage the gift. Jesus loves to operate on the gift. The Holy Spirit is willing to work the gift. What a better way for someone to Manage, Operator and … Continue reading

LITTLE SIGN AND WONDER (A RESULT OF GOD’S SPIRIT POURING OUT)

Article by Bishop William Nicholson Newest drummer for AncMC. Bishop’s Nicholson two (2) year old granddaughter, Evvona. She was born sick with many issues, which we are wrestling with. My wife and I have shed many a tear for the health of this child. Her health now is an emerging testimony in itself. The story behind this video is that Evonna happened to be in the Church hallway visiting the Bishop. Suddenly she cried out to Harry, our Building Maintenance guy, as she pushed open the heavy hall way door and passed through. Out loud and firmly, she said, “Harry, come here….”Kaaamonnn!”…nodding her head to come. After Harry went through the hallway door, Evonna, again called out….”Gramps (the bishop), come here”, so I went through the door into the hall way. Evonna, the recently turned 2 year old, then cried out, “Mom! Kaaamonnnn” (Come Here). We three stood there in the entry way, wondering what the little one wanted. Then, quickly Evonna, without any direction from us, with her little legs and feet moved over to the heavy main Church sanctuary doors with her little hands amazingly opened the one door entirely by herself (where she got the strength, I … Continue reading

United Alaska Moravian Ministry (UAMM) Group Story:

Article by Bishop William Nicholson, UAMM President, March 31, 2017: NOTE:  Soon a new website entirely devoted to United Alaska Moravian Ministry (UAMM) will be published.  A button will appear on this site to link to UAMM’s information.   All of UAMM’s  news and articles will be transferred to the UAMM domain.  Anchorage Moravian Church (AncMC) falls under UAMM, so this site (www.alaskamoravian.org) will be solely the AncMC site, not UAMM.  Folks, please be watching! As a Moravian Group recognized by the Unitas Fratrum in November 2012, it’s status reaffirmed in May 2014, and then by August 2016 UAMM was removed from the Moravian Unity by a small and powerful group due to its stand against Gay Ordination.  UAMM is hopeful, someday, to re-enter status with the Moravian Unity!  But for now, it is free to grow, expand, without any supervision, but the Spirit of God, and direction from the Word of God!  And indeed it continues to explode in growth! UAMM’s 18 Churches and Fellowships are located in the Kuskokwim, Bristol Bay,  Anchorage, and the southcentral areas of Kenai and Soldotna including a growing Church in Federal Way, Washington state.   Anchorage,  Bethel, Big Lake, Dillingham, Kenai/Soldotna,  Manokotak,  and Wasilla, … Continue reading

Messiah in the Passover

The public is cordially invited to a special night with Rev. Daniel Nessim of Chosen People Ministries, who will be presenting the Messiah in the Passover at the Anchorage Moravian Church on March 30, 2017, at 6:30. The following is a little about the speaker Daniel Nessim (from Chosen Ministries website):   “Daniel Nessim is a skilled communicator who has spoken extensively in Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Israel. Having established a branch of Chosen People Ministries in the United Kingdom and planted a Messianic Jewish congregation in the heart of England’s Jewish community, he is now servicing among the Jewish people of Washington State and Vancouver, B.C. Daniel Nessim is the son of Jewish parents who also believe in Jesus. His mother is a survivor of the holocaust, having been being hidden in Berlin throughout the Second World War. His father was from a Jewish family from Baghdad and Cairo. A few years after his arrival in England in the 1950’s, Daniel’s father became the first in his family to believe in Yeshua. Daniel has thus had a privilege rarely accorded to Jewish believers in Yeshua, having a heritage of faith in his own family. At the … Continue reading
