Walking in the Supernatural

Glory to the King of kings!

Last week was amazing! As part of Kingdom Life's Training Days, our guest speaker Bengt Wedemalm spoke to us about Walking in the Supernatural. In 3 very powerful sessions we were instructed and inspired to exercise God's faith to overcome the world. You can listen to the sessions here...

On Sunday Gayle Claxton of Voice in the City spoke to us about personal leadership and how every believer is responsible to be a spiritual leader through desire, prayer and worship. You can listen to Gayle's powerful teaching here...

We are excited about whom God is connecting us to, to build with us and we are in awe of God's mandate for KLF in Frankfurt and Germany! Through God's revelation and grace, we are being equipped to have an influence on the Church and the people of Frankfurt and we are witnessing the Lord bring people from many, many nations to us to be revived to influence the nations. Glory to God!

This Sunday we will be meeting at our new venue for our Sunday meetings. We will be hosted by the Christliches Zentrum Frankfurt and will meet as usual from 3pm - 5pm. Please check here for directions to CZF. Our mid-week meetings are at various other venues so please check here for details.

Touching the nations

Praise be the God!

This past week was wonderful. The Lord is continuing to bless us with spiritual revelation, wisdom and knowledge to know Him more and we are seeing people being set free by the Truth! Hallelujah!

Yesterday we had the privilege of having pastors Joseph and Geetha Komanapalli visit KLF. The Lord is doing a wonderful work through this godly couple in India where they are ministering to the poorest of the poor on the south- eastern coast of India in the area of Andhra Pradesh. Their work supported by Hermon Living Waters Ministries is exstensive and we are blessed to be able to contribute both financially and practically to this anointed ministry. To find out more about HLWM and the Komanapallis, click here.

Pastor Geetha brought God's Word and the Lord spoke to us about living a life of faith. In particular the Lord addressed our need to identify temptation and sin that seek to undermine and weaken our faith. We were encouraged to take hold of God's promises and walk in them!

We praise God for the way He is continuously encouraging us to stand firm in our faith as we possess His promises, dwell in them and stand firm in them.

This Friday and Saturday we will be having our KLF Training Days with Bengt Wedemalm and we are expecting to break through into deeper levels of faith that will release even more miracles, signs and wonders in KLF, Frankfurt and across the globe! God is able to do exceedingly abundantly more than we can possibly ask or think according to his power that is at work within us! Hallelujah! For more information on this weekend click here.

This Sunday Gayle Claxton of Voice in the City will be ministering to KLF and we are looking forward to another Spirit-filled encounter with God and one another! For more information on Gayle and Voice in the City click here.

We praise God for all the awesome things He is doing in us and through us and we are continuing to prepare for greater things as we expand our territory in the natural in anticipation of both numerical growth and spiritual growth. Our move to CZF on the 31st of this month is significant and we believe that this move is a move into new beginnings as we enter into the next season of God's work with us and through us. Glory to the King of kings! For more information on the move click here.

Standing firm!

Glory to God!

KLF celebrated her 2nd birthday yesterday and we praise God for His faithfulness and for His favour upon our lives! Hallelujah! All glory belongs to Him!

The Lord is speaking to us about: possessing the land by taking hold of God's Truth and about dwelling in the land by living in the Truth. This is what the Holy Spirit showed us yesterday:

  1. The Father has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into Christ's Kingdom. Col. 1:13
  2. A dominion is made up of a ruler and his subjects; a master and his servants.
  3. Whatever dominates the believer's life, rules the believer's life. 2 Peter 2:19
  4. Even though the believer has been delivered from the dominion of the flesh, the world and the devil, s/he still has to choose to submit to the Lordship of Christ Jesus. Rom.8:12; James 4:7
  5. Submission is giving permission and the denying of self to do the will of another.
  6. Having been rescued, reconciled and made new, the believer must continue in his or her faith, established and firm, not moved from the hope held out in the gospel by continuing to submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ! Col. 1:13,22,23
  7. Submission to God means choosing to receive Him unconditionally and allowing Him to renew our mind, heart and will (the soul).
  8. The believer will only experience God's supernatural nature and power when s/he receives the Truth unconditionally and submits His life to Him. John 6:16-21

We then looked at 2 Chron. 20:1-30 where God began to show us how the believer is to deal with opposing dominions. When opposition comes,

  1. the believer must fix his/her eyes on Jesus. 2 Chron. 20:3,4,18,19,21,22,26,27
  2. the believer must trust in the Lord by appealing to God's nature (20:6); God's power (20:6); God's works (20:7) and God's Word (20:8)!
  3. the believer must depend on God and not on his/her own power to deal with the opposing dominion. 20:12,13
  4. the believer must trust in the truth that the "battle is the Lord's" (20:15). It is God's power and God's protection that delivers the believer from opposition (Eph. 6:10,11).
  5. the believer must take up his /her position and stand firm in the Truth. 20:17; Col. 1:23; Eph.6:11,13,14
  6. God delivers His people from opposition as they submit to His lordship and trust in Him! James 4:7; 2 Chron. 20:1-30

We praise God for continuing to establish us and build us up in the Truth so that we can stand firm and "dwell in the land" that we have taken possession of! (Col. 1:23; 2:6,7)

Exciting upcoming events:

17 May: Joseph and Gheeta Komanapalli of Hermon Living Water Ministries will be visiting KLF
22 & 23 May: Bengt Wedemalm will be leading KLF's Training Days on Walking in the Supernatural
24 May: Gayle Claxton of Voice in the City will be ministering to KLF
31 May: KLF's first meeting at the Christliches Zentrum Frankfurt at 3pm

Times of refreshing!

Glory to God!

We are living in "times of refreshing" (Acts 3:19,20) and we are excited about what God is showing us and doing with us. Hallelujah!

The Lord is speaking to us about walking in His truth and "possessing the land." This is what He revealed to us yesterday as we looked at Joshua 6 & 7:

In order to "possess the land" or walk in God's promises/truth,

  1. The believer must hear from God - God's Word/truth is the foundation of faith! Joshua 6:2
  2. The believer must believe God's Word and receive it by faith.
  3. The believer must realise God's Word by speaking it and acting on it. Joshua 6:6,7
  4. The believer will then "possess the land" and walk in God's truth. Joshua 6:20
  5. The believer must dwell in the land as s/he continues to walk in the truth. Col. 1:21-23

The obstacles to "possessing the land" are when,

  1. The believer doesn't base his or her faith on God's Word but on his or her own thinking. Joshua 7:2-5
  2. The believer doesn't trust God's Word and therefore does not believe the truth.
  3. The believer does not realise the truth but trusts in a stronghold that is not built on the truth. 2 Cor. 10:3-5
  4. The believer gives in to fear.
  5. The believer walks in disobedience.

Therefore, in order for the believer to dwell in the land or walk in the truth,

  • The believer must let the truth remain in him/her. Col. 3:16; John 15:7; 1 John 2:14
  • The believer must make the truth his/her stronghold. Psalm 91:1-4 (KJV)
  • The believer must continue in the truth by being rooted and built up in it. Col. 2:6,7

God wants His people to walk in times of refreshing as they take hold of His truth by believing it, receiving it, realising it, possessing it and continuing in it.

We praise God for His revelation to us so that we can walk in times of refreshing! Hallelujah!

Yesterday evening we had another awesome opportunity to minister to the poor and needy in Frankfurt as we served them, loved them, encouraged them and simply brought them in touch with God's Kingdom. Praise God!

This Sunday we are looking forward to celebrating our 2nd birthday and we praise God for His faithfulness to us! All glory belongs to Him!

Exciting upcoming events:

17 May: Joseph and Gheeta Komanapalli of Hermon Living Water Ministries will be visiting KLF
22 & 23 May: Bengt Wedemalm will be leading KLF's Training Days on Walking in the Supernatural

Quote of the week:

" He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler." Psalm 91 (KJV)
