Is the Anchorage Moravian Church Spirit Filled?

Commentary by Bishop William Nicholson: If our Church is Spirit filled what does it look like? Is it about the Holy Spirit’s power and presence observable in that local church? Yes, I think God’s Spirit and Power is manifested in the Anchorage Moravian Church, but it is not the true Spirit of God unless the following is true too, which we all need to work on: Paul the Apostle makes it clear that discerning the Holy Spirit’s presence in the Church is an affirming of the lordship of the biblical Jesus (1 Cor 12:3). If Christ is uplifted I believe this is the Church where the Holy Spirit works and where Jesus shows His love in incredible ways to bring salvation, recommitments, transformation and discipleship. It’s a place where people love to hear the preaching of the Word of God. Last Sunday night two people found Jesus Christ as Savior. Praise God. When the Spirit fills a congregation, we should expect to see the miracle of spiritual life in that place. People will be genuinely saved and we should never take this for granted. Seeing salvation should be a big and glorious experience for any church. Also I think that … Continue reading

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
