Kay Lorentz


Glory to God!

On Sunday, we had the privilege of having Kay Lorentz with us as guest speaker. Holger and Kay Lorentz are missionaries of Globe Mission with KLF as their sending church. We support their ministry to children at risk in the various ministries they lead and are part of such as Resilient Kids SA, Mercy Aids and their own family as foster parents to 4 HIV-positive children. Kay gave us a glimpse of their tough journey and God's faithfulness in the past year and shared a message entitled, "Letting go" in which she spoke to us from Psalm 124 and Luke 5:17-26. During worship, the Lord was already preparing our hearts to receive revelation of His Fatherhood and His desire to replace every orphan spirit with His Spirit of adoption in Christ. Kay's message flowed right from the Father's heart and addressed the need for God's people to have their minds renewed according to the love of the Father and their identity as sons and daughters of God. Kay showed us how God wants to restore trust, remove shame and teach us to be vulnerable so that we can become powerful as we depend on the Father. In response to Kay's message we spent time in the Father's healing presence, allowing Him to minister to many of us very deeply. We praise God for Holger and Kay who are truly demonstrating the Father's love with their lives and for the anointing upon them to bring home the orphans to their Father. Hallelujah!

André Bronkhorst

Glory to God!

We had an amazing Prophetic Encounter conference with André Bronkhorst this weekend. With great clarity, accuracy and encouragement, André ministered prophetically to many people in the meetings. The combination of André's powerful teaching and revelation of the Father's heart strengthened our faith, renewed our hope and moved us into greater depths of love for the Lord, for one another and for God's salvation purposes. Following are links to the messages shared at each session with a short summary of the content:

Session 1: "Training your senses" - As the Church learns to depend on the presence of God and becomes sensitive to the Holy Spirit through resting, praying, fasting, worshipping and listening, she will be transformed. The Church is called to become mature and discerning as she constantly feeds on God's truth and influences the world with God's presence (Acts 1:8; 10:1-4; Heb 5:14).

Session 2: "Filled with the knowledge of the glory" - Looking at 1 Cor 12:7, André explained the difference between words of knowledge, words of wisdom and prophecy. He then spoke to us about the glory of God and how believers need to have revelation of the Lord's glory in order to be carriers of the knowledge of the glory of God. André encouraged us to pursue the knowledge of the glory of God and to birth it in our "off-season" so that we can produce it in season (Hab 2:14; Num 24:15,16; Ps 19:1-5; Pro 2:4-7; Dan 1:17; 12:4; Mt 13:11; Rom 1:28; 1 Cor 1:5; 2 Cor 2:14; Eph 4:13)!

Session 3: "You will receive power" -  Dependence on the Holy Spirit and recognising His work prepares us for what God has prepared for us (Rom 8:26; Acts 1:8).

Session 4: "Living in the glory" - Looking at the account of Elisha's request to receive a double portion of Elijah's anointing in 2 Kings 2:9-15, André showed us that God wants us to walk in a double portion of His anointing this year as a church - a season of 'more than enough'! André encouraged us not to withhold what we are able to give in order to touch the lives of others with the blessings we, ourselves have received. Just as Elisha and Elijah were assigned to one another, so the Church is called to seek out divine relationships that God has assigned to release blessing and breakthrough. As the Church grows in her understanding of God's grace, she will learn to live in God's glory and be a blessing to believers and unbelievers alike.

Yesterday's meeting was electric. The place was full of hungry and expectant worshippers who joined together with one heart and one spirit to seek God's face and worship Him. Our time of worship in song moved into a powerful time of communion as we received the very life of Christ and participated in His body and His blood (see Jn 6:53-57; 1 Cor 10:16,17; 11:23-26). After his message on "Living in the glory", André prophesied over many people who were visibly moved by the accuracy of the words spoken and the revelation of the Father's heart. He then invited the church to come forward for prayer and to be anointed as we continued in worship. It was another very powerful time as many were filled with the Spirit and God confirmed His Word. The presence of God was so strong that people did not want to leave but enjoyed communion with the Holy Spirit or fellowship with one another over a hot drink and cake. It was a joy to have so many people at the meeting and have such an awesome time with God as a conclusion to our 3 day Prophetic Encounter conference! Hallelujah!

Nehemiah


Glory to God!

Yesterday was the last day of our 21 days of prayer and fasting. We spent the last 3 weeks going without to spend more focused time on God as we reached up, reached in and reached out in prayer. To help us on our journey, we were inspired, challenged and encouraged with a daily devotional from the Book of Nehemiah which you can find here

It is difficult to describe what God was doing yesterday, starting already during our pre-meeting prayer and continuing throughout the service. The Holy Spirit gripped our hearts. Our prayer time was real, raw and passionate as many gathered before the meeting and the Holy Spirit took over. In the same spirit of abandon, we worshipped the Lord together as He filled the room with His presence and power. It was glorious. 

Richard then shared a message entitled, "Principles of Revival for Transformation" in which we looked at the life of Nehemiah and noted the following:
  1. It takes one person of faith to inspire a nation to bring about revival.
  2. Prayer, restoration, unity, reverence for God and His word and obedience lead to revival.
  3. Revival must be sustained for lasting transformation to happen or people return to old patterns of behaviour.
Richard showed us that just as Nehemiah was gripped by a problem, and took hold of God's prophetic revelation and therefore understood God's purpose for his life, so the believer will only pursue God's promises if s/he is truly affected by a problem (see Nehemiah 1:1-11; Ps 29:18; Hab 2:2).

Without a problem and a promise, we will lack purpose!

Looking at the account of Nehemiah, we saw how he was motivated by the problem of his people who were scattered and living in shame and his city, the walls of which were broken and its gates burned down. Consequently, Nehemiah motivated his people to work as one man to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem with the ultimate goal of bringing restoration to the whole nation. We saw how everyone got involved with the short term goal of restoring the walls and the gates that led to the people coming together in unity that would result in the revival that would lead to transformation of a city and a nation! Hallelujah! 
Richard then shared a prophetic revelation for Kingdom Life in which the Lord revealed the problem with the Church, His desire for us as His people and His promise to us if we pursue His purposes. The Holy Spirit moved us once again and we responded to God's Word in prayer, repentance and worship as we asked God to break our hearts with what breaks His heart, for the faith to take hold of His promises and the grace to persevere in rebuilding the walls that will lead to revival so that our lives, our church, the Church, our city, our nation and the nations will be transformed.

We praise God for what He did yesterday and what He is setting us up for this year. Hallelujah!

A people of faith


Glory to God!


During the second week of our 21 days of prayer and fasting we focused on reaching in and praying for our church and the Church in Frankfurt. On Wednesday we had a joint prayer meeting with several churches as part of the prayer week of the alliance of churches in Frankfurt. It was a powerful evening with worship led by our KLF team and prayer for various concerns in our city and in the Church. In this last week of our fast, we will be reaching out and praying for the lost and needy. To help us on our 3 week journey of rebuilding spiritual walls, Richard has been encouraging us with a daily devotional based on the book of Nehemiah where we have been looking at the example of Nehemiah to be inspired, encouraged and challenged. You can read 21 days with Nehemiah here.


Sunday's meeting was wonderful as we worshipped God and proclaimed His goodness over our lives. In his message entitled, "Faith in action", Tobias spoke to us about the power of faith. As "a supernatural force, created in our hearts", Tobias explained how God strengthens our faith by His love (Gal 5:6; Rom 5:5); His Word (Rom 10:17; Eph 1:18); His covenant (1 Sam 17:36; Luke 22:20) and His Name (Acts 3:16). It is by faith that we appropriate the Anointing and receive heaven on earth! Hallelujah!

Prayer and Fasting

Glory to God!

We have completed the first 7 days of our 21 days of prayer and fasting. The focus during these 3 weeks is to reach up, reach in and reach out, respectively. To help us on our journey to transformation, Richard is sending a daily devotional from the Book of Nehemiah in which we follow the example of Nehemiah and how he, together with the people of Israel, rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem. You can read the 21-day devotional here

During this second week of our fasting and praying we will be focusing on reaching in. This means praying for the Church and joining other believers in intercession to rebuild walls in our church and the Body of Christ in Frankfurt. We are excited to be be part of a joint prayer meeting on Wednesday evening at 19:30 at KLF together with many other churches in Frankfurt. It will be a powerful time of worship and intercession as we seek God and stand in the gap together.

Already during our pre-meeting prayer yesterday, we sensed an increase in spiritual dynamic as we worshipped and sought God for the meeting. Prayer and fasting makes us more sensitive to God, more focused in prayer and empowers us to bring heaven on earth! Consequently the meeting was powerful as we worshipped and as God spoke to us through prophetic words and the preaching of His Word. In his message, entitled, "Warring with your prophetic word", Alexander spoke to us about how we need to apply God's prophetic words given to us in our lives so that we will be established (2 Chronicles 20:20). Rather than seeking prophets to get another word from God that we forget, Alexander challenged us to remember the prophetic words given to us and to decree and declare God's Word over our lives (1 Sam 17:41-47); discern and desire the fulfilment of God's Word (Dan 9:1-3) and allow God to develop and discipline us as we depend on Him and His Word (1 Tim 4:14; 2 Pet 1:5-8). We praise God for the transforming power of His Word and that He wants to establish us as we believe His prophets and apply His Word to our lives!

The Journey to Transformation



Glory to God!

We believe 2019 will be a year of transformation! The Lord has been speaking to us about rebuilding spiritual walls and destroying the walls that hinder us on our journey to transformation. In his message entitled, "The Journey to Transformation," Richard spoke to us about the greatest enemy of transformation: apathy! Looking at the example of Nehemiah (Neh 1:1-2:6), we noted how apathy is destroyed in our lives as we inquire (be concerned about others, the Church, the lost, our city and our own walk with the Lord), identify (take responsibility for one's own spiritual walk, the Church and the city), intercede (seek God on behalf of the Church, the lost and the city), and initiate (put faith into action to bring about change).

As a church we will be fasting and praying for 21 days to take time to review, refocus and realign ourselves with the Lord. During these 3 weeks we will be reflecting on Nehemiah and allowing God’s Word to inspire us to rebuild spiritual walls in our own lives, as a church and in our city. If you would like to receive the daily devotional during these 21 days, please write to pastor@kingdomlife-frankfurt.com.

Preparing for Transformation

Glory to God!

As we come to the end of this year, we praise God for His faithfulness and for His continuous revelation for us to know Him, become like Him and live for Him. These past three Sundays, God has been speaking to us about rebuilding walls of spiritual protection, building an altar of atonement and preparing for transformation in 2019.

In his message entitled, "Restoring hedges of spiritual protection," Alexander showed us how to establish spiritual walls of protection against the strategies of the enemy by building spiritual hedges through prayer (Job 1:1-5,10,20), establishing core values, honouring spiritual leadership (Ezekiel 22:30; 1 Pet 5:1,2), inviting angelic protection (Ps 34:7) and keeping the unity of the Spirit.

Looking at the account of Christ's birth in Matthew 2:1-12, Richard shared a message entitled, "Three gifts," in which we noted the significance of the three treasures that the Magi presented to Jesus. Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh reflect the life of Jesus: Christ our glorious King, Christ our great High Priest and Christ the Sacrificial Lamb of God. The three treasures also signify Christ as our Altar of Atonement: the altar overlaid with gold was put in place before the Holy of Holies where incense was to be burnt continuously and an annual sacrifice was to be made to atone for the sins of God's people (see Exodus 30:1-10). We also recognised that the three gifts are significant for believers in that they symbolise what we offer God with our lives: Gold represents giving our best to God as we serve Him; Frankincense represents a life-style of prayer and God-consciousness and Myrrh represents our lives, lived as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God.

On Sunday, after another powerful time of worship, we spent time giving thanks to God as many came forward to testify about God's faithfulness and love. Richard then shared a message entitled, "Transforming faith," in which he showed us that God is looking for a people of faith who believe in His presence, His power and His purposes (see Lk 18:8). As we looked at the truth of God's presence, power and purposes, Richard challenged us to see whether there is evidence of our faith in our lives (Jam 2:17). We believe that 2019 will be a year of transformation as we have faith in God's presence (Heb 11:6; Jam 4:8; Mt 18:20), in God's power (Eph 3:2; 6:10; Col 2:12; 1 Cor 4:20), and in God's purposes (Col 1:15-18; Is 9:6,7; Mt 6:25-34; Rom 8:28). We praise God that as we reflect God's glory (His presence, power and purposes) with our lives by faith that we will be transformed from glory to glory by the Holy Spirit (2 Cor 3:18)! Hallelujah!

We pray God's richest blessings on your life and that 2019 will be a year of glorious transformation in every area of your life!
