Back to the roots!

Glory to God!

Yesterday's meeting was awesome as the Lord revealed His holiness to us and drew every one of us to our knees in worship of, and surrender to Him. God is continuing to prepare us, purify us, and sanctify us for His purposes and His glory! Hallelujah!

As the Lord continues to teach us about the identity, the purpose and the goal of the Church, and how authority links all three as we live in covenant with God and one another, He is taking us back to the roots. Looking at Acts 2:42-47 the Lord showed us the following:

1. Christ's Church is made up of a people who are devoted.
  • A devoted people are a people set apart to be unconditionally and continuously committed to God and one another.

2. The Church is to be devoted to the apostle's teaching by submitting to the authority of spiritual leadership and the teaching of God's Word.
  • God's Word must be received in the spirit by a people who have a teachable spirit and do not listen subjectively - only then can we discern truth spiritually and allow God's Word to do its work in us.
  • The Bereans received the Word first and then they examined the Word. Acts 17:11

3. The Church is to be devoted to the fellowship.
  • True fellowship (Koinonia) is not only a physical gathering but also communion in soul and spirit.
  • True fellowship in the Church is a reflection of the same fellowship the Father has with the Son. John 17:20-23; 1 John 1:3
  • The Church is to be a fellowship of the Holy Spirit. 2 Cor. 13:14

4. The Church is to be devoted to the breaking of bread together.
  • The breaking of bread is communion - sharing the Lord's supper.
  • Communion proclaims the reality of Christ's death that has set us free from the power of the enemy - providing salvation, healing and deliverance for those who believe.
  • Communion establishes the new covenant in Jesus' blood and our unity in the Spirit with God and with one another. 1 Cor.11:23-26

A devoted people are a people set apart to be unconditionally and continuously committed to God and to one another

We praise God for an awesome 2008 and we are looking forward to 2009 - a year of breakthrough and fruitfulness! Hallelujah!

Quote of the week:

"They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles." Acts 2:42,43

Sharing Destiny

Glory to God!

Yesterday was awesome as we met together in the afternoon as well as in the evening to celebrate Christmas with the poor and needy. The children and the youth prepared and performed a powerful drama to emphasise the true meaning of Christ's birth and the power of the Cross. In the afternoon they performed the drama in English and in the evening they performed it in German at the Christmas celebration for the needy. You can see pictures of both meetings here!

We praise God for His hand upon us and for where He is taking us together! Yesterday the Lord spoke to us about His covenant with us and our covenant with Him and one another. He showed us that it has always been His will to bring honour to His name in every generation and that we are called to do the same in this generation as we covenant with God and one another, forming deep-spirited relationships and sharing our destiny together. For more information on covenant membership look here: what%20is%20covenant%20membership.doc

In the evening we celebrated Christmas together with the poor and needy as we met in a local hall and provided a delicious meal for the people that was catered by the NH hotel group. Apart from receiving plenty of food, we also worshipped together and the people also received the Word through preaching and the drama performed by our KLF children and youth. We praise God for the many people that came (almost double compared to last year!) and that we were able to provide everyone with enough to eat. Hallelujah!

Quote of the week:

"The king is enthralled by your beauty; honour him, for he is your lord."

The Key to the Kingdom

Praise be to God Almighty!

The Lord is preparing us for breakthrough! He is speaking very clearly to us about our identity, purpose and goal (see last week's news)!

Yesterday the Lord showed us how our identity, purpose and goal are linked with the key to the Kingdom - AUTHORITY! This is what He revealed to us:

  1. God has revealed Himself as the triune God - 3 co-equal persons but 3 different roles!
  2. Within the Trinity is a distribution of roles and authority.
  3. Jesus is the Son of the Father (identity) and therefore under His authority. Matthew 3:17
  4. Jesus demonstrated His submission to the Father's authority by being completely obedient to Him in order to reveal the Father (purpose). Matthew 4:1-10; John 14:6-11
  5. Jesus could exercise authority over all the power of the devil (goal) because the Son lived under the Father's authority! Luke 4:14; John 14:11; 1 John 3:8; Acts 10:37,38


  1. The Church (God's children) has many co-equal members but many different roles. 1 Cor. 12:12
  2. Within the Church is a distribution of roles and authority. 1 Cor. 12:27; Eph. 4:7,11
  3. We are sons and daughters of God (identity) and therefore under God's authority. Eph.1:22,23
  4. We are to live as sons and daughters of God in submission to His authority and to reveal Him (purpose). Eph.5:1,2,8
  5. We can only exercise authority if we live in submission to God's authority. James 4:7

The Lord then challenged us with the following:

  1. There is a difference between obedience and submission.
  2. Obedience is responding to a command.
  3. Submission is choosing to obey and "positioning oneself under."
  4. Children are to obey their parents because the immature are not yet able to make right choices. Eph. 6:1-4
  5. Adults are expected to submit to one another because the mature are able to make right choices. Eph. 5:21,22; 6:5
  6. God places authority in our lives for us to learn true submission (spiritual leaders, husbands, fathers, government leaders, police, masters, bosses etc).
  7. Our attitude toward earthly authority reveals our attitude toward heavenly authority!
  8. We deceive ourselves when we think we can submit to God and not submit to God-given authority!
  9. We can only serve one master (Matthew 6:24). Therefore one is either single-hearted or one has a divided heart.
  10. We are called to serve God whole-heartedly. Eph. 6.5-9
  11. True submission is choosing to obey God whole-heartedly. Eph. 6:5-9

The Lord then showed us what hypocrisy is..
  1. Hypocrisy is the veiling of a divided heart.
  2. A divided heart is able to obey (externally) but still not be submitted (internally).
  3. Hypocrisy manifests itself through:
  • deception- convincing oneself that one has obeyed God when one hasn't (1 Sam.15:13)
  • self-justification - justifying one's disobedience (1 Sam.15:20,21)
  • blame - blaming others for one's disobedience (1 Sam. 15:24)
  • sacrifice - trying to cover up disobedience with good works (1 Sam. 15:15)
The Lord has set His people apart (identity) to reveal Himself through them as they live their lives in wholehearted submission to Him (purpose) in order to penetrate the kingdom of darkness with God's authority and establish the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven (goal)!

This Sunday we will be having a Christmas celebration with the homeless and needy, sponsored by the NH hotel group. It will be a wonderful evening!

Quote of the week:

"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." Eph. 6:10-12

The Church and the Kingdom of God

All glory belongs to our King!

We are in awe of what God is doing and what He is showing us. Yesterday He gave us the following prophecy:

I am preparing you for breakthrough!

The Lord then gave us insight into where He is taking us and how we will get there by teaching us the difference between identity, purpose and goal. This is what He showed us:

  1. In the world one's identity is based on what one does. Our purpose becomes our identity.
  2. In the Kingdom one's purpose is based on one's new identity in Christ. Our identity becomes our purpose.
  3. Our goal is to fulfill God's will on earth as it is in heaven.

Looking at Matthew 16:13-19 the Lord showed us that,

  1. We need a spiritual revelation of who God is and who we are in Him. Matthew16:17,18
  2. God builds His Church with Man. Matthew 16:18
  3. Jesus builds His Church. Matthew 16:18
  4. The Church that Jesus builds will penetrate the kingdom of darkness. Matthew 16:18
  5. The Church has been given the keys to establish God's Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 16:19

Therefore KLF's identity, purpose and goal is as follows:

  1. Identity - sons and daughters of God, the people of God, the Church, the Body of Christ, the revelation of God on earth as He is in heaven. Gal. 3:26,27; Eph.1:22,23; 1 John 4:17
  2. Purpose - to live as sons and daughters of God, the people of God, the Church, the Body of Christ, and to reveal God on earth as He is in heaven. Eph. 3:10; 4, 5
  3. Goal - the goal of the Church is to "uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow" the kingdom of darkness and to "build and plant" the Kingdom of God. Jer.1:10; Eph. 6:10-20

God is setting His people (identity) apart to reveal His glory (purpose) and to destroy the kingdom of darkness by establishing God's rule and reign on earth as it is in heaven (goal).

Yesterday evening we had another wonderful opportunity to minister to the poor and needy in Frankfurt. It's just awesome to see how people change as they encounter God through worship, the Word and love. God's Light penetrates the darkness and gives people hope, love, strength and healing! Hallelujah! What a wonderful God we serve!

Quote of the week:

"His (the son of man's) dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed." Dan. 7:14

Faith expressed through love

Glory to God!

These are exciting times! The Lord is teaching us and showing us how to be the spiritual Body He has redeemed us to be. Consequently we are being challenged to maintain the spiritual unity Jesus accomplished through the cross (Eph. 2:11-18) by making every effort to always be at peace with one another (Eph. 4:3) and to truly love one another with God's love (Agape - Phil. 2:1-5). This applies to our individual lives but is highlighted when we meet together and have the opportunity to manifest spiritual union in the way we relate to one another and worship together.

The Lord is showing us very practically how to exercise spiritual unity and last Tuesday at our weekly prayer meeting, the Lord showed us how to pray together with one accord (Acts 1:14). We learned that to pray in spiritual unity and in one accord we must:

  1. Engage - "to pray" is a verb and means that everyone participates
  2. Listen - everyone must listen to the Holy Spirit, the leader of the meeting and to one another (James 1:19)
  3. Submit - we must submit to the Holy Spirit, the leader of the meeting and to one another (Rom. 13:1; heb. 13:17; Eph. 5:211-6:9; Phil. 2:2-4)
  4. Be one in purpose - we must agree and target our prayers (Phil. 2:2; Mat. 18:19,20)
  5. Join in the rhythm of the Spirit in the meeting and deny self
  6. Be self-controlled - contributing sensitively and waiting on the Lord (1 Cor. 14:26-32)
  7. Make room for others - giving people room to participate and not hog the prayer time (Phil.2:3,4; Rom. 12:10,13)

As we applied these principles to our meeting, we entered into an amazingly powerful time of prayer as we worshipped, proclaimed, declared, destroyed, established, decreed and joined together as one, revealing the manifold wisdom of God (Eph. 3:10-12)! Hallelujah!

Yesterday the Lord spoke to us about the relationship between spiritual love and sincere faith, showing us the following:

  1. Sincere faith is always accompanied by action. James 2:26
  2. Actions that are motivated by eros love mean nothing! 1 Cor. 13:1-3
  3. The fruit of sincere faith is action motivated by agape love! 1 Cor. 13:4-8; Gal. 5:6; 2 Cor. 5:14
  4. Agape love is a selfless love that initiates and responds according to the Holy Spirit, to reveal God's love for the benefit of others and for the glory of God.
  5. Eros love is a selfish love that initiates and reacts according to selfish desires, that reveal the sinful nature/ flesh for one's own benefit and glory!
  6. Spiritual love is unconditional.
  7. Eros love or soulishness is always conditional.
  8. Choosing to reveal God's love within us by denying the flesh (self-life) manifests the Lord's glory. Ex. 34:6; Heb. 1:3

Agape love is a selfless love that initiates and responds according to the Holy Spirit, to reveal God's love for the benefit of others and for the glory of God

In the evening we had the wonderful opportunity to feed the poor and needy and to put the Word into action and demonstrate agape love. Hallelujah!

Quote of the week:

"If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose." Phil. 2:1,2 (emphasis mine)

A lifestyle of faith

Praise be to the King of kings and Lord of lords!

The Lord is continuing to grace us with His wonderful presence in our meetings and He is speaking very clearly to us about spiritual love (agape). We believe that God is preparing us for greater spiritual breakthrough as we learn to truly love one another and be united in spirit.

Yesterday the Lord showed us the following:

  1. Agape (spiritual love) comes "from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith." 1 Tim. 1:5
  2. Sincere faith means a faith that is genuine, real and without hypocrisy.
  3. Faith is not only hearing the Word (James 1:22) nor is it just believing (James 2:19) and neither is it just confession or proclaiming truth (Luke 6:46).
  4. Sincere faith is always accompanied by action!
  5. Faith is a lifestyle because of God. Rom. 12:1,2
  6. Our faith is tested, tried and tempted continuously. James 1:2
  7. Every test, whether we are confronted by the flesh/ self-centredness (Gal. 5:16-25), the world (1 John 2:15) or the Devil (Matthew 4:1-11) requires a faith response - choosing to God's will or one's own will or the world's way or the Devil's way!
  8. Our lives consist of taking faith initiatives and giving faith responses.
  9. As we are faithful in the small tests, God will entrust us with greater opportunities to do His will and glorify Him! Luke 16:10

Faith is a lifestyle because of God!

We are very excited about new opportunities to serve the poor and needy in Frankfurt and it is wonderful to see the whole Body get involved in some way, demonstrating agape love. We therefore minister to the needy on the first Sunday of every month and on the fifth Sunday (when there is one).

Quote of the week:

"Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors." James 1:2,3 (The Message)


Monday 17 November 2008


Glory to God!

The Lord is building His Church and raising a spiritual people who reveal His glory and love! Hallelujah!

The Lord is speaking to us about spiritual love (agape) and yesterday He showed us the following:

  1. We are to be like God (Eph. 5:1; Rom. 8:29; Eph. 4:24; 2 Peter 1:3; 1 Peter 1:15,16; Matthew 5:48)
  2. We are dearly loved (Eph. 5:1; 1 John 3:1; John 17:22,23)
  3. We are to live a life of love (Eph. 5:2)
  4. We are to love as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us (John 13; 1 John 3:16; Phil 2:6-11)
  5. When we love like Christ loves us we honour the Father (Eph. 5:2; 2 Cor. 5:14,15; Rom. 6:6-14)

The Lord also challenged us not to just listen to His Word but also to do it (John 13:17; James 1:22-25) since His glory is only revealed through us when we speak and act according to His Spirit within us (John 18:6; Matthew 7:16)!

We give God all the glory for what He is doing in and through us and for blessing us with His awesome presence in our meetings. He is adding to our number and He is maturing us in walking in the Spirit. We also praise Him for more opportunities to serve the Body and the poor and needy in Frankfurt. Hallelujah!

Quote of the week:

"Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." Ephesians 6:1,2

Seeking God's Face

Praise God!

This past week has been profound, ground-breaking and very significant. We have been extremely blessed to have Richard Maybery visit us and take us through a series of teaching on Seeking God's Face: living from the inside out. The essence of what God was showing us is how He wants His people to move from Eros to Agape; from man-centredness to God-centredness; from living for self to living for God (the sessions have been recorded and are available at KLF). Having Richard visit us for a whole week always takes us to a new level of intimacy and encouter with God but also a renewed zeal and passion for God and His purposes are imparted! Hallelujah!

Yesterday's meeting was awesome as we met with God and He spoke to us through Richard about the Spirit-shaped life. The Holy Spirit then ministered to each of us as Richard prophesied over us and we received from the Lord.

We are excited that doors are beginning to open up for KLF to serve the Church and the people of Frankfurt. We now have 2 regular slots every month to serve the poor and needy and the Lord is giving our worship team opportunities to minister to the Church in Frankfurt next year at different events.

We praise God for Divine relationships that He orchestrates for His purposes! Hallelujah!

Quote of the week:

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." 1 Cor. 13:4-8

New Life Celebration

Glory to the God of peace!

These are truly exciting times! The Lord is raising, building and equipping His people to manifest His presence, power and personality! Through the cross we are reconciled to God and to one another! Hallelujah!

Yesterday the Lord spoke to us about not only being reconciled to Him and to one another, but also about how He wants us to be reconciled with ourselves! Looking at the account of Mephibosheth, the Lord showed us how we can grow up with a wrong identity because of not knowing and believing in the covenant God has already made with us by His blood. When we base our identity on our weaknesses and what man and Satan say about us, we become spiritually crippled and cannot walk in the fullness of what God has given us! The Lord wants His people to live out of the covenant He has made with His people. He wants us to live from our new identity in Christ and how God sees us. As God has forgiven us in Christ, so we must forgive ourselves and walk in the blood-bought freedom and identity God has given us. We must be reconciled with ourselves!

We praise God for His amazing work in drawing people to Himself and yesterday we celebrated another new life in Christ through baptism. The Lord is changing lives as we encounter Him and many are testifying to the wonderful work of the Holy Spirit in their lives during and outside our meetings! Hallelujah! You can view pictures taken on the day at

This week is going to be amazing. God's favour is upon us and we sense that God is about to do an even deeper work in us through the ministry of Richard Maybery. You can see the schedule of this week's "Seeking God's Face" meetings at

The Lord wants us to know Him so that we can make Him known! Everyone is welcome to attend these meetings and we will be translating the meetings into German for any German-speaking guests.

Quote of the week:

"Jesus replied: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbour as yourself.'" Matthew 22:37-39


Monday 27 October 2008

Supernatural Peace

Glory to the Prince of Peace!

We praise God for blessing us with His presence and revelation so that we can know Him more and make Him known! Yesterday's meeting was glorious as the Holy Spirit led us into the throne room of grace, mercy, glory and power! Hallelujah!

The Lord is continuing to speak to us about spiritual love that comes from a pure heart, a good conscience and a sincere faith (1 Tim. 1:5) and yesterday He showed us the following:

The purpose of Christ's death on the cross was to:

  1. Reconcile man to God (2 Cor. 5:11-21) so that man can have peace with God (Rom. 5:1; Is. 53:4,5) and be cleansed of a guilty conscience (Heb. 9:8-15).
  2. Reconcile man to other believers so that we can live at peace with one another and with a clear conscience (Eph. 2:11-18; Acts 24:16).
  3. The cross symbolises the vertical reconciliation of man to God and the horizontal reconciliation of man to man.
  4. Christ's death on the cross therefore enables the believer to live at peace with God and with others and to have a clear conscience with God and with man.

This Sunday we will be having a New Life Celebration at the EFG in Eschersheim (please check last week's blog) and we are looking forward to Richard Maybery's visit next week!

Quote of the week:

"His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace, and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit." Eph. 2:15-18


Monday 20 October 2008

A Good Conscience

Glory to the King of kings!

The Lord is continuing to give us spiritual revelation and understanding in our meetings and we are excited about where He is taking us! Hallelujah!

Yesterday's meeting was very powerful. The Lord's presence was "thick" and we continued to worship Him as the Holy Spirit led us. The Lord delights in true worshippers who wait on Him and don't just go through the motions but worship Him in spirit and truth. Hallelujah!

The Lord is teaching us how to be the spiritual people He has created us to be in Christ. Yesterday He spoke to us about spiritual love and He showed us the following:

  1. God has graced us with His love so that the believer has the divine potential to reveal the Lord's love (spiritual love). 1 John 4:12; John 13:34
  2. The conditions for the believer to overflow with spiritual love are "a pure heart, a good conscience and a sincere faith." 1 Tim. 1:3
  3. The Lord leads the believer by His Spirit through the believer's spirit. 1 Th. 5:23; Rom. 8:16; Gal. 5:16-25
  4. The believer's spirit discerns the spiritual things that are from God. 1 Cor. 2:13,14
  5. The Holy Spirit communicates with the believer's conscience. Rom. 9:1; 2 Cor. 1:12
  6. The Lord uses the believer's conscience to ensure that he has peace with God and peace with man. Acts 24:16
  7. To live from the spirit is to pay attention to one's conscience and act accordingly! Acts 24:16; Rom. 13:5; 2 Cor. 4:2; 2 Cor. 5:11; 1 Tim. 1:19, 3:9; 2 Tim. 1:3; Heb. 13:18; 1 Peter 3:16

We praise God for teaching us to live by the Spirit and keep in step with Him so that we will overflow with His love (Gal. 5:22,25)!

On the 2 November, KLF will be meeting in the EFG in Eschersheim but will resume meetings at TPLF the following Sunday.

We are looking forward to having Richard Maybery with us in the first week of November (4-9). He will be leading a series of EQUIP meetings on Seeking God's face: living from the inside out.

Quote of the week:

"I strive to keep my conscience clear before God and man." Acts 24:16

Spiritual Love

Praise be to God!

This past week was awesome! On Saturday, David Rowe (KLF worship leader) led an EQUIP seminar and workshop on worship and encountering God. We provided translation into German in order to open our EQUIP meetings to other churches in order to also bless and equip others to know God and make Him known. Many people encountered God in a fresh and dynamic way and learned how to worship the Lord with their lives. We praise God for the anointing upon David's life and the spiritual insight God is giving him to release the saints into greater intimacy with, and worship of God. The teaching from the day is available to listen to and download on the teaching section of the KLF website.

We are excited about what God is showing us and it is wonderful to see the manifestation of God's revelation as people apply the Word to their lives and their lives to the Word. Yesterday the Lord spoke to us about spiritual love and He showed us the following:
  1. God has given us everything to be a revelation of Him through our knowledge of Him. 2 Peter 1:3
  2. We are graced to reveal God - His presence, His personality and His power!
  3. As we know God's love, we will reveal His love. 1 John 4:7-12; John 14:15; John 13:34
  4. Our goal is to love as God loves us. 1 Tim. 1:5
  5. God's love is spiritual love. Col. 1:8; Gal. 5:22
  6. Spiritual love comes from a pure heart, a good conscience and a sincere faith. 1 Tim. 1:5

Praise be to God for His revelation to us so that we can know Him and make Him known for His glory! Hallelujah!

Yesterday evening we had another awesome opportunity to demonstrate God's love to the homeless and needy at the monthly soup kitchen. We praise God that everyone left satisfied and that spiritual seed was sown into their lives. We rejoice in the opportunities to pray with these precious people for God to save them, deliver them and heal them and we are seeing more and more people respond to the Word and the love that is being shared with them. Hallelujah!

We are looking forward to what promises to be an exciting week with Richard Maybery from South Africa who will be leading a series of EQUIP meetings from the 5 - 9 November on Seeking God's Face. Please check the EQUIP section of the KLF website for details on times and location.

The Keys of the Kingdom

Praise God!

Having a church in Frankfurt means we have the exciting privilege of being a connecting point for many believers and ministries across the globe. Almost weekly we have guests from all over the world who are passing through Frankfurt and have chosen to worship with us. The Lord is using us to build a network of contacts to further His Kingdom. Hallelujah.

Yesterday we had a guest from Australia, Chris Peterson, who has come to Frankfurt for a week with his team in response to a prompting from God. Chris encouraged leaders and pastors at the monthly international pastors' meeting on Saturday with key principles that will help the churches in Frankfurt establish the Lord's rule and reign in this city. Chris has a heart to see churches and leaders move from a tribal mentality to a Kingdom mind-set and the Lord has graced him to impart some important biblical truths to set leaders free from maintaining to conquering.

Yesterday Chris spoke to us about the keys of the Kingdom (note: not the keys of the Church) and how we as believers have been given the keys that represent God's authority and power to release Heaven on earth. Chris also reminded us of the fact that Jesus is coming back for a bride that is radiant, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless (Eph. 6:26). That means that by grace, through the blood, with His Word and by His Spirit we, the Church, are more than conquerors (Rom.8:37) and are enabled to bring Heaven on earth as we further His Kingdom using the keys of the Kingdom! Hallelujah!

This Saturday, David Rowe (KLF worship leader), will be leading our next EQUIP seminar and workshop on worship and encountering God. KLF is arranging EQUIP meetings to help the people of God know God and make Him known. We are excited about this week's meeting as it will help KLF and visitors to not only learn about God but to also encounter Him. David is an anointed worshipper with the grace upon his life to usher God's people into His presence. In order to bless our German speaking brothers and sisters we are providing translation.

God is adding to our number and it was amazing to see so many different nationalities together in one place, worshipping God together. We had people from Germany, England, Scotland, Camaroon, India, Australia, South Africa, Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Korea, and China, just to mention a few. Jesus is truly the barrier breaker who is building His Church to establish His Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven (Eph. 2:11-22). Hallelujah!

Quote of the week:
"It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ." Eph. 4:11-13

Sowing Spiritual Seed

Glory to God!

Last week the leaders of KLF attended a 3 day leaders conference at Kingdom Faith in Horsham, England. We are blessed to be in covenant relationship with Kingdom Faith and are excited about how God is saying the same things to us as He is saying to them! It is a privilege to be part of KF's apostolic anointing and to be a part of the work that the Lord is doing in them and through them. The leaders conference was a great opportunity to build new relationships as well as strengthen existent ones. The meetings were very powerful as we met with God in worship and through His Word to us. We are on an exciting journey with God and it's wonderful to walk together with KF and be one in spirit and purpose. Hallelujah!

As part of equipping our people to walk in the fullness of God's purposes for their lives, we are thrilled that two of our people will be attending Kingdom Faith's Faith College where they will encounter God in a dynamic and powerful way and be trained to know Him and make Him known!

Yesterday's meeting was awesome! The presence of God was evident the moment we began to "enter in" and the Holy Spirit led us deeper and deeper into the glory and holiness of God. We praise God for His favour upon us and the anointing that is on our worship. Glory to Him!

KLF supports a ministry in India called Hermon Living Water Ministries that is doing a mighty work in India planting new churches, raising up spiritual leaders, building and supporting orphanages and schools and reaching the lost with the Gospel. Yesterday we were privileged to be visited by members of the leaderhip team of HLWM and to have the opportunity to further establish our relationship with them and pray with them. Hallelujah.

The Lord is speaking to us about honouring Him and yesterday He showed the following:

  1. When we overflow with the grace that God has lavished upon us - the gift of Himself to us, we not only reveal Him and thereby honour Him (because we reveal in the natural what we believe we have received in the spiritual), but we sow spiritual seed.
  2. Every person sows seed with their lives that will either be of the flesh, the devil or spiritual seed. Gal. 6:7,8
  3. We reap what we sow. 2 Cor. 9:6-15
  4. When we sow spiritual seed we will receive an abundant harvest of righteousness. 2 Cor. 9:10
  5. When we sow spiritual seed we will receive God's abundance and newness. Prov. 3:9,10
  6. When we sow spiritual seed we live under an open heaven and release heaven on earth. Mal. 3:10-12
  7. When we sow spiritual seed into others, we release the Kingdom of God into their lives that will produce everlasting fruit!
  8. To sow spiritual seed we must die to self and overflow with the Life that the Father has sown into our lives. John 12:23-25

The Lord is saying this to His Body:

My children, because you are enthusiastic (possessed by God) and generous (of noble birth), take initiative and sow spiritual seed willingly, eagerly, sacrificially, suddenly, excellently, and despite the circumstances and receive the blessing that will flow into your life and into the lives of others, thereby honouring Me.

We praise God for His hand upon us and we give Him all the glory for what He is doing in us and through us! Hallelujah!

Quote of the week:

"I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life." John 12:24,25

Honouring God with a Spirit of Generosity

Thanks be to God for the riches of His grace that he has lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding!

This week has been another awesome time with God. He is truly anointing our meetings together whether on the streets of Frankfurt or our midweek meetings. The Lord is moving the Church inside out and yesterday we joined several hundred people to march through Frankfurt and proclaim the name of Jesus. We were privileged to be able to have our worship team kick off the march as they filled the inner city of Frankfurt with songs of proclamation and worship. Hallelujah! Click here for more details..

The Lord is revealing His glory to the world through His Body, the Church!

The Lord is continuing to show us what it means to honour Him and today we looked at 2 Corinthians 8:1-9 and the Lord showed us the following:

The Macedonian churches demonstrated a spirit of generosity by,

  1. Living out of the grace they had received. 8:1; Eph. 1:6-8
  2. Living according to the riches of God's spiritual blessings rather than their circumstances. 8:2
  3. Overflowing with joy and welling up in rich generosity because of God's favour and their identity in Christ (generous means "of noble birth"). 8:2
  4. Living sacrificially by going the extra mile. 8:3
  5. Taking initiative and not waiting for instructions. 8:3
  6. Being desperate to serve. 8:4
  7. By doing the unexpected. 8:5
  8. By completing the task. 8:6,11
  9. By excelling. 8:7
  10. By fixing their eyes on Jesus as their example of ultimate generosity. 8:9; Phil. 2:5-11

We honour God when our lives overflow with the riches of God's grace!

This coming week the KLF leaders will be attending the Kingdom Faith Leadership Conference in Horsham, England.

We are also excited about the upcoming EQUIP seminar on the 11 October when David Rowe will be teaching KLF and guests to encounter God in true worship.

Quote of the week:

"For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich." 2 Cor. 8:9

Honouring God with the Grace of Giving

Glory to God!

More and more people are attending our midweek meetings and being abundantly blessed! Our Tuesday prayer meeting was very powerful; the women are exploring FAITH on Thursdays; the men were encouraged at Men's Prayer Breakfast and IMPACT! went to a concert together on Friday and had a great time with their new youth leader, Alexander Blair.

Yesterday's meeting was very special and a lot of fun. The Lord is speaking to us about honouring Him and yesterday we looked at how we honour God with our finances. This is what He showed us:

  1. Many Christians live according to the Law or even the absence of the Law - they are legalistically motivated by what is and what is not permitted instead of living according to the Father's heart. John 5:39,40
  2. A legalistic and religious mind-set seeks to live according to what is and what isn't said in the Bible instead of finding out why it is said.
  3. People who treat God legalistically live according to the Letter rather than the Spirit or the heart of God. 2 Cor. 3.6
  4. Christians who ask the question, "Do I need to tithe and how much should I tithe?" reveal a legalistic approach to God! Their giving is motivated by what is and what isn't required in the Bible.
  5. The correct question to ask is, "How can I honour God with what He has given me and how do I reveal the heart of God with my giving?" This question reveals a giver who is motivated by the heart of God rather than the law or the absence of the law!

We honour God with the grace of giving as we reveal in the natural what we believe we have received in the spiritual. Rom. 15:27

  • The Lord then showed us that to live by the Spirit or the heart of God is to be enthusiastic (possessed by God) and to take initiative. 2 Cor. 8:3,4,16,17; 9:1,2

After God's Word to us, we collected money from young to old to bless one another with and to reveal the heart of the Father. There was much rejoicing as people received a blessing and as we celebrated God's abundant generosity towards us. Hallelujah. Our desire as God's people is to be a people after His own heart who know the heart of the Father and who make His heart known with a spirit of generosity!

In the evening we had the privilege of serving the needy as we blessed them with physical and spiritual food, love, worship in song and a spirit of generosity. Glory to God!

We are looking forward to this Saturday as people from all over Germany and other nations will gather together in Frankfurt for the Jesus March. Our worship team will be involved and we're excited to be part of an event that will lift the name of Jesus and exalt Him!

Quote of the week:

"But just as you excel in everything - in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us - see that you also excel in this grace of giving." 2 Cor. 8:7


Monday 8 September 2008

Honouring God with overflowing grace!

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. Hallelujah!

Last week was very exciting as we began meeting at the IBTC for our weekly prayer meeting and women's meeting. The Lord is establishing KLF and we now have meetings for everyone to know God and to be equipped to make Him known!

On Saturday a group of us met from different churches in Frankfurt to distribute a Gospel Brochure to every household in the suburb of Frankfurt-Hausen. In the next weeks we will return to the households and seek to speak to the people about what they have received. This project called Mission2Go was successfully used of the Lord in London where thousands of people were reached with the good news. The vision is to reach every home in Frankfurt with the Gospel!

Yesterday's meeting was awesome as God blessed us with His presence and a greater revelation of Himself through the worship and the word. The Lord is speaking to us about honouring Him and yesterday He showed us what it means to be a minister of the Spirit and how to honour Him by overflowing with His grace. Looking at 2 Cor. 3:1-18, the Lord revealed the following to us:

  • The Old Covenant is about following instructions to be like God.
  • The New Covenant is about being filled with God to reveal Him.
  • We have received the fullness of God in Christ to be ministers of His Spirit and not ministers of "instructions." (3:6)
  • We are adopted children of God who are filled with Him to reveal His glory! (3:18)
  • We are to be a revelation of the Living Word! (3:18)

The Lord then showed us that,

  • We honour God when we believe we have received and deny self to live for Him. Rom. 12:1
  • Ministers of the Spirit overflow with the gift of God. 2 Cor. 9:11-15
  • We can only overflow if we are filled with the revelation of what we have received in Christ from God! 2 Cor. 1:3-5; Eph.5:18

"By the grace of God I am what I am" 1 Cor. 15:10

We praise God for revealing Himself to us so that we can reveal Him as we deny self and overflow with Him.

Quote of the week (King David had a revelation of God's righteousness, faithfulness, salvation, love and truth and was determined not to veil Him but to reveal Him):

"I desire to do your will O my God; your law is within my heart. I proclaim righteousness in the great assembly; I do not seal my lips, as you know, O Lord. I do not hide your righteousness in my heart; I speak of your faithfulness and salvation. I do not conceal your love and your truth from the great assembly." Psalm 40:8-10 (emphasis mine)


Monday 1 September 2008

The Spirit of Faith

Glory to God!

The Lord is continuing to speak to us about living according to what we have received! On Friday, at the men's prayer breakfast, God spoke to the men about walking in their inheritance and yesterday He spoke to KLF about honouring Him by agreeing with what we have received. After an awesome time of worship led by the Holy Spirit, the Lord showed us the following:

  1. We honour God when we reflect in the natural what we believe we have received in the spiritual.
  2. We have received mercy, grace and favour. Therefore we must deny self and live our lives in agreement with what we have received to honour God. Rom.12:1
  3. The words we use reflect what we believe. Luke 6:45
  4. When we agree with God's will and what He has given us, we exercise the spirit of faith. 2 Cor. 4:13-15
  5. We are to be "living agreements"; the "Amen" of what God has spoken and done in Christ Jesus. 2 Cor. 1:20
  6. We are to speak the very words of God. 1 Peter 4:11
  7. Jesus spoke the will of the Father into being and healed the sick, raised the dead, stilled the storm and resisted the devil! Power was released as Jesus agreed with the already revealed will of the Father! John 5:19
  8. Speaking God's will is not a formula - it's not about the words we use. It's about revealing the heart of God as we speak in agreement with His will.
  9. Thanking God is the fruit of the spirit of faith as the believer thanks God for what he has received! Col. 3:15-17
  10. The spirit of faith is also exercised through prophecy.
  11. Prophecy is the revelation of God's heart.
  12. A prophetic people reveal the heart of God in word and deed. 1 Cor. 14:31

We then paired up and prophesied over one another as we simply agreed with the Father and spoke God's truth over one another. People were greatly encouraged and edified (1 Cor. 14:3)! God is showing us that we must begin with what we know in order to enter into the unknown. Hallelujah!

We praise God that we now have a room in which to have regular mid-week meetings in. We will therefore have our church prayer meeting on Tuesdays at the IBTC (International Bible Training Centre) at 8pm as well as our new meeting for women that will start at the same venue on Thursdays at 7.30pm!

We are also very excited about the special meetings we are arranging to help people know God and make Him known. These equipping seminars and workshops are called EQUIP and will take place as the Lord leads. Our next EQUIP meeting is on the 11th October and will be led by David Rowe who will teach God's people to encounter God. From the 5th to the 9th of November, Richard Maybery will be visiting Frankfurt and we are also planning another EQUIP meeting, that will be led by Alexander Blair, on Prophetic Evangelism.

We praise God that He is fulfilling His Word to us to establish us this year. We are growing spiritually and numerically and we're excited to be on this awesome journey with Him! Hallelujah!

Quote of the week:

"It is written, 'I believed, therefore I have spoken.' With that same spirit of faith we also believe and therefore speak.." 2 Cor. 4:13

Honouring God

"Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honour and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!"

We've had an awesome week! We're continuing to meet on Tuesday evenings with other believers to worship the Lord and prayer walk on the streets of Frankfurt. We're experiencing an ever increasing stirring in the spirit realm that is both releasing God's presence as well as manifesting resistance which is a clear indication that the Kingdom of God is advancing! Hallelujah!

The Lord's favour is upon the men of KLF as we meet on Fridays for breakfast, encouragement and prayer. God is speaking very clearly to the men and we are sensing the Lord establishing us for greater things to come. We believe that God the Father is raising up sons who will be released to be the spiritual fathers He has called us to be in the family, church, city and nation!

This weekend we were visited by two leaders from Kingdom Faith (Horsham, England) who came to continue to establish our covenant relationship with Kingdom Faith. Pastor Jonathon Dyke and Pastor Gary Rumbold spent time with the leadership of KLF as well as the church to build, encourage and release us into new realms with the Holy Spirit. We are excited about relating to Kingdom Faith and benefiting from what God is doing in His Body in that nation.

Yesterday's meeting was very interesting as we began to explore some of the new things that God was showing us over the weekend. The Lord then spoke to us about what it means to glorify Him and showed us the following:
  1. To glorify God is to honour God and the Lord wants us to be as zealous as He is about His honour! Numbers 25:10-13
  2. To honour God is to reflect in the natural what we believe we have received in the spiritual! Rom. 15:26,27
  3. We cannot change self to become more like God because it has been crucified and is dead! Gal. 2:20
  4. We can only reflect God if we reflect on Him and not on self! 2 Cor. 3:7-18
  5. In order to become a revelation of God, we need a personal, spiritual revelation of Him!

We praise God for continuing to reveal Himself to us through His Spirit and His Word!

Next week KLF will be meeting in the building of the Baptist church in Eschersheim from 3pm - 5pm!

Quote of the week:

"And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit." 2 Cor. 3:18

Dying to self and living to God!

Praise God!

This past week has been awesome! On Tuesday we met with other believers to worship the Lord on the streets of Frankfurt and we are noticing how passers-by are beginning to have an increased interest in what we're doing. People from the streets, who have experienced a touch from God, are bringing friends and family to meet with God! Hallelujah!

On Friday morning the men got together for breakfast, a word of encouragement and prayer. It was a very special time and we're sensing that the Lord is going to use this weekly meeting to do great things with the men of KLF and to influence others for the Kingdom!

Today's meeting was profound as we met with God in worship even before the meeting usually starts! The Lord is continuing to anoint our musicians with new songs and we're excited about how He is blessing us with His presence and glory as we worship Him! Hallelujah!

The Lord spoke to us today about the following:

  1. By God's grace we have received the very gift of God Himself! 2 Cor. 13:5
  2. By God's grace we have received Christ, the wisdom of God and the power of God! 1 Cor.18-24
  3. By God's grace we have become nobility and have received God's wisdom and power to shame the wisdom and the power of the world! 1 Cor. 1:27
  4. It is God's will to glorify His name through us! Ezek.36:22-28

The Lord then showed us that the two main hindrances to seeing God's glory are a wrong understanding of the difference between grace and faith (see last week's word to us) and the flesh or the self life. He then showed us the following:

  1. The flesh cannot glory in God's presence! 1 Cor. 1:28-31
  2. God's glory is revealed through death to self! 2 Cor. 12:9,10
  3. We are to die to self and live to God! Gal.2:20; Phil.1:21; Col.3:3,4; 2 Cor.5:15; Rom. 6:4-10

Everything we do must be motivated by a desire to glorify God and not self.

The Lord then gave us 7 ways to ensure that we remain weak in order to reveal His glory! We must:

  1. Humble ourselves
  2. Check our motivation
  3. Place our confidence in Christ and not in methods or even our faith
  4. Overcome fear by trusting in God rather than in self - fear is the fruit of self-consciousness; boldness is the fruit of God-consciousness!
  5. Risk looking foolish and weak to reveal God's wisdom and power!
  6. Practice "secret obedience"!
  7. Practice pointing to God

We sense that God is preparing KLF for an even greater manifestation of His glory and we are excited that God will confirm His Word to us as we die to self and live for His glory!

Next weekend we will be visited by Jonathon Dyke and Gary Rumbold - two leaders from Kingdom Faith, England.

"Do you not realise that Christ Jesus is in you?" 2 Cor. 13:5

By Grace Through Faith!

Glory to the King of Kings!

This past Sunday we resumed our Sunday meetings after a wonderful time in England at Faith Camp. It was an awesome meeting as we met with God and one another. The Lord is teaching us to enter His glory and we’re experiencing His healing and liberating presence! Hallelujah!

God’s Word to us this Sunday was all about grace and the relationship between grace and faith. The Lord is giving us a deeper revelation of grace to encourage us to step out in faith. He showed us the following:
  • The believer has been given the Holy Spirit so that we can understand what God has freely given us. 1 Cor. 2:12
  • Grace is not only God’s unmerited favour but the very gift of Himself to man. Acts 2:33-39; Rom. 8:10,11; Col.2:9; 1 Cor. 1:4; Gal. 2:20,21
  • Jesus, who is full of grace and truth, lives in us! John 1:14,16; Col. 1:27

The Lord then showed us that the problem with most believers is that they confuse grace with faith. Instead of having faith in God’s grace, most Christians try to work at having more faith. However, using the analogy of electricity and a light
switch, we saw that if the electricity represents grace then the switch represents faith. Consequently, the believer must realise that the power is not in the faith but in the grace – faith releases the grace! That is why the apostle Paul writes in Ephesians 2:8 that we have been saved BY grace THROUGH faith!

“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” 2 Cor. 9:8

Having the revelation that God will make all grace abound to us encourages us to simply step out and release His grace through faith! Once we understand this important truth:

  • It will stop us trying to do what only God can do.
  • It humbles us to realize that our part is only in the releasing and not in the power.
  • It encourages us to step out more to release God’s presence, power and love.
  • It stops us from waiting for what we have already received in Christ and simply getting on with it.

On Sunday evening we had another great opportunity to minister God ‘s love to the poor at the monthly soup kitchen.

This week we’re looking forward to getting together again at our various meetings and particularly getting together with other believers to worship the Lord on the streets of Frankfurt. Hallelujah!

Quote of the week:

“As God’s fellow workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain.” 2 Cor. 6:1

Faith Camp '08


We've just returned from an awesome week at Faith Camp in Peterborough, England. 27 people from Kingdom Life attended and roughed it out together in tents, through a little rain and lots of wind. It was great to be together and to be part of an amazing time with God. The meetings were terrific with dynamic worship and inspiring preaching. It was truly a time to meet with the Lord with over 5000 other people in many different ways. What is really exciting is the fact that the week was a continuation of what God has been saying to us in these past weeks. Following from His Word to us concerning living to know Him and make Him known, the Lord spoke to us last week about Christ in us and how to manifest His glory in our lives. Through powerful and very practical teaching we learned how to demonstrate God's glory by healing the sick and living according to the Holy Spirit. As we responded to God's Word to us, we saw many people receive physical healing as the Lord glorified Himself! The Father took us from, Revelation to Release to Revival. Hallelujah!

To find out more about what we got up to at Faith Camp check out the Kingdom Faith Blogs and watch video clips of reports of the week.

To Know And To Make Known!

Glory to the God of all creation!

We praise God for the "depth of insight" He is giving us into the "unsearchable riches of Christ" by His Spirit (Eph. 3:4,5,8). God is giving us revelation so that we become a revelation to the world!

Yesterday the Lord showed us the following:

  1. There are two worlds - the physical and the spiritual; the natural and the supernatural; the visible and the invisible.
  2. The physical, natural, visible world proceeds from the spiritual, supernatural, invisible. Gen.1:1
  3. The physical, natural, visible points to the spiritual, supernatural, invisible! Rom. 1:20

"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse." Rom. 1:20

  1. God not only revealed His supernatural being through creation but also through His Son, who is the exact representation of God's invisible being. Col. 1:15-20; Heb. 1:3
  2. Jesus came to make the Father known. John 1:14; 14:9-11; 17:6,26
  3. Jesus revealed God's nature - God's love, compassion, kindness, zeal, etc
  4. Jesus revealed God's authority - Jesus taught with authority and exercised God's authority over creation.
  5. Jesus revealed God's power - Jesus healed the sick and raised the dead.

The Lord then showed us that,

  1. Just as Jesus knew the Father and came to make Him known, we are called to know God and make Him known!
  2. God revealed Himself to Paul so that Paul would make Him known. Eph. 3:2-11
  3. God reveals Himself to the Church by His Spirit so that the Church will make Him known to all creation - both seen and unseen! Eph. 3:10
  4. God has predestined the believer to be conformed to the image of His Son who is the exact representation of the invisible God! Rom. 8:29,30
  5. The believer is called to make God's nature known. Eph. 4:22,23; Col. 3:9
  6. The believer is called to make God's authority known. Col. 2:9
  7. The believer is called to make God's power known. Eph.2:10; John 15

As the believer comes to know God through spiritual revelation, His life will point to God as He makes God's nature, authority and power known to the world.

We live to know and to make known!

The podcast for yesterday's sermon will be available in the first week of August.

Next weekend most of Kingdom Life will be attending Faith Camp in Peterborough, England. It will be a dynamic time of meeting with God and spending valuable time together. KLF will therefore not be meeting on the 27 July and the 3 August and will resume meetings on the 10 August!

Quote of the week:

"You were put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness." Eph. 4:22-24

Why Are We Sitting Here?

Glory to God!

Last week was amazing! We joined up with several others to worship and prayer walk in the centre of Frankfurt's darkest area to invite God's presence, power and love to invade the kingdom of darkness and set the captives free. We praise God for the people who are drawn to us as we worship our King and for the opportunities to speak to them about our Saviour and pray for them!

Last week was our student placements' final week and we have been richly blessed with their anointing and encouragement as they led various meetings and participated in the life of Kingdom Life. We are very grateful to Kingdom Faith College for sending them to us and supporting us in this way. We praise God for our covenant relationship!

Sunday's meeting was awesome once again and the Lord spoke to us about our needing to have the same attitude as the lepers in 2 Kings 7. He showed us that,

  1. The lepers were not prepared to stay where they were and chose to arise. Similarly the Church is called to wake up from its spiritual slumber and be obedient to her commission to arise and shine! Eph. 5:14; Is.60:1
  2. The lepers were prepared to take a risk. Similarly the Church is called to leave her comfort and risk for God's glory and for the sake of the lost!
  3. The lepers didn't keep the plunder for themselves but told the hungry about the abundance they had received! Similarly the Church is called to share what she has been given and not selfishly hoard the blessings and God's abundant spiritual provision!

The heavenly "alarm clock" has sounded and it is time for the Church to rise up and reveal the glory of God and share His glory with the lost!

We are really looking forward to Faith Camp in Peterborough, England from 26 July - 2 August. It will be a refreshing time for all of us and an awesome opportunity to be spiritually tanked up and enjoy true fellowship as we camp together for a week.

Kingdom Life will therefore not be meeting from 21 July - 4 August! We will resume meetings on Sunday 10 August, filled and empowered for the next season with God! Hallelujah!

Grace: The Key to the Supernatural!

Praise be to God!

On Tuesday last week we prayer-walked and worshipped God on the streets of Frankfurt and on Thursday our youth (IMPACT!) joined our two student placements to minister to the poor and needy on the streets and gave them something to eat, prayed for them and simply showed them the love of God. The Lord is blessing our youngsters and Friday's IMPACT! meeting was awesome as our student placements led the meeting and encouraged the guys to realise their identity in Christ. We then concluded the meeting listening to God and encouraging one another with prophetic words as we prayed for one another. Glory to God!

Yesterday we met in a different location to have our New Life Celebration. We praise God for the two planned baptisms and the one spontaneous baptism - the Lord spoke to a lady during the meeting about being baptised and we sensed that God was truly prompting her to be baptised there and then just like the account of Philip and the eunuch in Acts 8! Hallelujah!

The Lord spoke to us about the importance of having a spiritual revelation and understanding of His grace! He showed us that,
  1. Grace is the supernatural and undeserved endowment of God's love, wisdom and power into our lives. Rom. 5:5
  2. We need the Holy Spirit to reveal "what God has freely given us." 1 Cor. 2:12
  3. Stephen (not an apostle), who was full of the Holy Spirit, faith, wisdom, grace and power walked in the supernatural as he "did great wonders and miraculous signs"; had a face "like the face of an angel"; spoke with supernatural wisdom and saw into the supernatural realm of Heaven. Acts 6:3,5,8,15,7:56
  4. The key to releasing the supernatural is the spiritual understanding of God's grace.
  5. When we fully understand God's grace, we will produce supernatural fruit! Col. 1:6
  6. God wants us to stand in the river of grace in which we submit to God's righteousness and not in the river of conditional righteousness where we try to establish our own righteousness . Rom. 5:1,2; 10:3

Looking at Romans 9 we saw that by God's grace:
  1. We have become "objects of God's mercy." vs 23
  2. God is making "the riches of His glory" known to us. vs 23
  3. He prepared us in "advance for glory." vs 23
  4. He has "called us." vs 24
  5. We are "His people." vs 25
  6. We are God's "loved one." vs 25
  7. We are "sons of the living God." vs 26

We continue to rejoice in God's supernatural revelation to us so that we walk in the supernatural by faith! Hallelujah!

Quote of the week:

"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." Gal. 5:1

Activating The Supernatural!

Glory to God!

This past week was amazing! On Tuesday we met up with some others from different churches to worship God together in the middle of the "darkest" area of Frankfurt to usher in God's presence, power and love. The Lord is calling the Church to worship Him in the toughest areas of Frankfurt to break into the kingdom of darkness with His Kingdom of Light. Hallelujah! We are recognising the importance of placing watchmen at the gateways of Frankfurt and so we are positioning ourselves through prayer and worship in the Frankfurt airport and right in front of the main train station. We believe that by positioning ourselves this way, we are taking spiritual authority over what is permitted to enter and leave Frankfurt and Germany! God is able to do exceeding abundantly more than we can ask or imagine according to the power that is at work within us (Eph. 3:20)!

On Thursday IMPACT! went with our two student placements from Kingdom Faith into Frankfurt city to seek out the lost, the sick and the needy. They split up into two teams and approached whomever the Holy Spirit directed them to and ministered to them. We praise God for the lives that were touched and the healings that God graced the guys with. Glory to God!

Yesterday's meeting was wonderful! The Lord is teaching us to walk in the supernatural and yesterday He spoke to us about how to activate the supernatural. He showed us that:

1. Activating the supernatural requires humbling ourselves -
  • Naaman obeyed a command given through a servant! 2 Kings 5
  • Apollos was willing to be taught by tent makers! Acts 18:1-3, 24-26

2. Activating the supernatural requires sacrifice -
  • The widow had to give the little she had to receive the abundance God had for her! 1 Kings 17:7-16
  • God's supernatural Kingdom is released as we live our lives as living sacrifices and do His will! Romans 12:1,2

3. Activating the supernatural requires honouring what God has already given one -
  • Naaman would have missed his supernatural miracle if had not honoured the prophet's word to him! 2 Kings 5:14
  • The widow used what she had to release the supernatural! 2 Kings 4:1-7
  • God will release more of His anointing as we use the anointing He has given us! Rom. 12:6-8

4. Activating the supernatural requires receiving unconditionally -
  • Naaman had to learn to receive unconditionally by not being allowed to "repay" Elisha! 2 Kings 5:16
  • If we struggle to receive unconditionally in the natural, we will probably struggle to receive unconditionally in the supernatural!

Looking at Hebrews 4:16, we saw that,

  • The believer must activate the supernatural - "Approach the throne of grace"
  • The believer must humble himself to enter the supernatural - God won't come to us; we are to seek Him, His way! James 4:8
  • The believer must deny self (selfish desires, natural thinking, pre-conceived ideas about God) and approach God His way and allow God to renew the believer's mind! Isaiah 55:8; Eph. 3:20
  • The believer must approach God with the little he has to receive the abundance God has for us! "Approach....and receive"
  • The believer must learn to receive God's unconditional love, grace and mercy if he is to activate the supernatural!
The meeting concluded with our youngsters doing an awesome sketch on Saul's conversion and his supernatural encounter with Christ as described in Acts 9!

We praise God for teaching us by His Spirit and giving us supernatural understanding, knowledge and wisdom (1 John 2:27; Eph. 1:17; 1 Cor. 2:10-13)! We are thrilled with the way He is teaching us and encouraging us so that we are inspired to share Him with others. Freely we have received and so freely we want to give! Hallelujah!

We live to know and to make known!

This Sunday we will be celebrating new lives in Christ through baptism and we will be meeting in the Baptist church in Eschersheim at 3pm.


"It was such a blessing to visit your church on Sunday. It was great to be with a group of people who love the Lord so much. It felt like being home. Worship was wonderful. It seemed like everyone was worshiping from the heart, even before the music started. It was not about religion, but about love. The music was inspired and annointed. Even though I didn't know all the songs, it was so easy to enter in. The teaching was great, encouraging me to expect the Lord to use me not just in church, but in the every-day times of my life (like this business trip :) ). Indeed, a number of people at your church blessed me with words from the Lord that hit the mark. But, though they were doing a supernatural work, they did it in a very natural way. I saw no chains of performance, no weight of obligation, just a group of people passionately in love with Jesus Christ. What a blessing to visit with all of you." Bob, visiting from the U.S.A.

"...I have been standing in faith believing for my healing. And when you both laid hands on me on Impartation Sunday June 1, I laid on the floor with a great amount of heat going through my knee. I did not expect this as I came to receive the impartation for ministry. I had never before felt such heat in my knee and a hand came down on it and I could feel the fingers. I opened my eyes and of course no one was there. I was stunned really as it was definitely a hand I was feeling. I closed my eyes again and immediately I felt a hand on my left knee and fingers moving --- I could feel the actually fingers. I again opened my eyes and saw no one which I was so glad of. A few more minutes and the heat went away and the hands lifted. My knee still has metal in it but I can tell you something started that day. I do not know if I stopped the complete healing because I was so amazed by the hands or not. BUT I do know that my knee will turn back to flesh and bone-- because God said so. Just wanted to let you know where I am and to thank you for having that service. To God be all the GLory! AMEN" Karol, visiting from the U.S.A.

Quote of the week:

"Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor? Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him? For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen" Romans 11:33-36
