Cease Striving and know that I am God!

Among the many complex and sublime faculties of the human soul, one attribute functions as a servant to all: the nature of the soul is porous. This means that in addition to latent strengths and talents, the soul is also shaped and developed by external stimuli: we learn customs and language, habits, virtues and vices largely by importing reality as it surrounds us. Indeed, the marrow of life itself, as we subjectively know it, is created by the inward flow of these outward…

God's Strategic Plan for Iran

An Iranian evangelist says a spiritual awakening of unprecedented magnitude is occurring behind the scenes in a nation known for its terrorism



Most Americans have put Iran on a blacklist. We're concerned about Shiite militants who spread terrorism around the world, we don't trust Iran's nuclear weapons plans and we can't stomach Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's human rights record or his maniac ways



But my friend Lazarus Yeghnazar, an Iranian evangelist based in… Continue

Broken Walls Ministry: A First Nations First: The Sing to the Mountains Music Festival

Aimee Herd (May 26, 2010)



"It has been something I've dreamed of for a long time but the time hasn't been right before now." –Jonathan Maracle



FOUNDING EDITOR'S NOTE: My mother told me we were Native American on her side. Her father told her we had Native blood. Seemingly no records exist though. If so, it would be of the Nez Perce blood, as that is the reservation upon which my direct grandfather was raised. There is so much…

GOD CARES ABOUT YOU!

Joseph Prince Do you know why there are many believers today who don't cast their cares upon the Lord? It is because they don't have a revelation that He cares for them. Look at what His Word says: "[Cast] all your care upon Him, for He cares for you" (1 Pet. 5:7, NKJV). Unless you have absolute…

PUT GOD FIRST, NOT COUNTRY

Last Summer I attended a huge missions conference in Orlando, Florida. Thousands of delegates from dozens of countries attended the conference jointly participating in preaching, worship services, and seminars. It was a great time gain a further understanding of how world-focused our God is. He's not bound by our nationalities, political views, ethnic backgrounds, languages or any other wide assortment of…

Soft Answers

by Mac Hammond



Have you ever known a person whose primary method of communication seemed to be a verbal attack? A person who tends to communicate that way isn't necessarily a bad person.

Over 50? It May Just be the Beginning of Your Life!

Teresa Neumann-Commentary (May 19, 2010



The truth is, there are probably tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of people who have excelled in their calling late in life.





Founder's Note: The Pharisees understood clearly that you were to be taken seriously, especially at the age of 50 and older. In John 8:57, they demanded of Jesus, "Then the Jews said to Him, "You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?" –Steve Shultz,

Becoming A Better Communicator: The Listening Leader

Study after study has shown that effective listening skills can make you a more efficient, more knowledgeable, and more productive leader. But the same studies show that most of us are only 25 percent as good at listening as we are at talking.

It seems more of us need to find the James 1:19 cure in which the Bible encourages us to "be swift to listen and slow to speak." The symptoms of the disease…

Teresa Neumann (May 7, 2010)

"Let's preach while we can. Let's stand up and holler 'Jesus Christ! King of Kings, Lord of Lords!' to the top of our voice.

DUTCH SHEETS CANCELLS WILDERNESS OUTCRY

Dear Friend of DSM and Wilderness Outcry,



We are very sorry to announce that due to a lack of funds, the large 5-day gathering called Wilderness Outcry will no longer take place this upcoming summer. We believe this vision is of the Lord, and certainly no one can deny the desperate need of our nation for prayer, but the reality is that provision for the high cost of doing an event like this—most of which must be paid in advance—has simply not materialized. We are still holding…
