Prophetic Church

Dear People Who Keep Company With God,  The Bible tells us to not put out the Spirit’s fire and then it tells us how to not do that; do not despise prophetic utterances (1 Thess. 5:18-19). There is good reason this is in the Bible. If you are involved in a church or ministry that [...]

Fresh Anointing

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, Jesus was full of grace and truth (John 1:14), but as far as we know He did not preach, perform miracles or healings until He was anointed with the Holy Spirit and power (Luke 4:14 & Acts 10:38). So it is important for us to not only discover [...]

The Power Of Believing

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, As a young believer I heard Arthur Burt say many times, “Your believing rules you.

Relational IQ

Shibboleth

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, There is a peculiar story in Judges 12:1-6 that has important lessons for us today. In the days of the judges in Israel, the Gileadites devised a unique method of testing those who belonged to their camp and who didn’t. They asked everyone to say the word “Shibboleth.” [...]
