Jesus. We hunger and thirst after Him!

As you look at the vision outlined in the
links below; take note that it is the plan of satan to destroy God's
people from off the face of the earth. Understand the accuser of the
brethren wants us to be victims of his plan.
Jesus Christ our Redeemer has another plan...
He has ordained and decreed that we would be
In the midst of all that is soon to occur.
What has always been the case is that we as
God's people have a choice to make; and the anointing of the Lord will
either be upon us or not; depending on our obedience. Don't let this
statement confuse the issues before us. Sons and Daughters have seen
the fruit of obedience and the consequences of disobedience throughout the
Since we can only speculate as to the
consequences of their disobedience; let me ask this question as a way to
illustrate: What do you think the conquest of Jericho would have
looked like; if Israel had risen up in pride with an alternative way of
taking the city instead of following God's strategy?
Although what is written in the following
links is extensive in some areas; I do not represent it to be 'God's
Strategy.' As has been stated previously; what is written here is I pray
seen as part of the dialogue that needs to occur...
While what you have read in this section of
the website has been focused on the institutional church; recent research
indicates that there is over 23 million Christians in this country who no
longer attend these traditional churches.
In the prophetic section of this website; the
observation is made that we are living in a time similar to the time of the
judges, and as such; an overriding condition exists. The bible says in
Judges 21:25 "In those days there was no
king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes."
Many within the house church movement
(like the traditional church) have also fallen short of a biblical framework
for government. Like pastors who have an impenetrable leadership group
surrounding them; many house church leaders end up making their own set of
rules for how 'their church' runs; setting aside the fact that those who
come into "their church" --- even their own family --- belong to the Lord
and that only HIS standard is to be exalted. The perception of
answering only to the Lord and the tendency of believers to divide rather
than work through disagreements is clearly a deficiency within the house
In Amos 7:8 the Lord said:
“Behold, I am setting a plumb line
(HIS standard) in the midst of My people
Israel; I will not pass by them anymore."
As I have written elsewhere; this scripture
echoed what God told Noah before he destroyed those living on the earth with
a flood: "My Spirit shall not strive with man
Since Jesus said:
"But as the days of Noah were, so also
will the coming of the Son of Man be..."
we as His people should take heed that we
have resisted the "Increase of His government"
for too long and that He will no
longer "strive with man forever"
What is written here will I believe; provide
a foundational framework for the "Increase of
His government" and be fruitful for
the house church movement as well as the traditional church.
Remember; while this vision is part of the
foundational framework needed in this hour; It is still up to you to take
heed how you build. If we are faithful to "build according to the
pattern" using the strategy of His word; being led by His Spirit... Then we
will in the midst of the approaching battle walk as the overcomers Jesus
Christ ordained us to be.

In light of
everything you've just read concerning the vision for reformation in the
Church; change for the sake of change itself will not be easy, and quite
frankly if that is all it is about; then many churches in the west would
not even consider such a radical departure from where they are now.
should be obvious as such a divergence from present mind sets and traditions
would be a monumental task for the church. It is also reasonable to
assume that earnest, responsible Christians would have no reason to move
forward in radical reformation of their church without a clear understanding
from the Lord concerning the perils facing modern Christianity.
These things can
only be seen in light of the time we are living in.
understanding of how late the hour is and how close we are to the end time
events mentioned in the book of Revelation would however serve as a catalyst
to move forward in obedience to the leading of the Lord.
In order to move
forward in such an endeavor; we must understand that what is happening to
the Church in China now, and what happened in communist Eastern Europe
during the last century serve as a realistic signpost of what will happen here in this country as well...
