Praise be to God!

The Lord is giving us greater depth of insight into His vision for KLF this year and beyond. Meditating on Isaiah 61:1-3, He is showing us the true nature of His redemptive purposes which the Father fulfilled in Christ (Mark 10:45) and has anointed the Church to continue (Acts 1:8; 2:3). Jesus, the Anointed One, not only paid the price by dying on the cross to redeem mankind from slavery to the kingdom of darkness, but His whole life was redemptive. As Jesus walked on this earth, He lived to reveal the Father's redeeming heart (John 13:14-17; Acts 10:38). All Christ's words and actions were a revelation of the Father's heart to bring man back to the Father and to bring mankind into fullness of life. Jesus demonstrated a redemptive life by laying down His life for others to come into fullness of life. Likewise the Church has been anointed to live redemptively by laying down her life for others in order to bring them into fullness of life (2 Cor. 5:20,21; 1 John 3:16).

The Church has been anointed to be redemptive!

The Father showed us that it is only as the Church receives revelation of His passion to redeem man to Himself that she will live redemptively and reveal His heart as Jesus did.

This week we are looking forward to having Mike Vickers with us who has a powerful ministry walking across nations with a cross, impacting countries with God's presence and sharing God's love with those he encounters on the way. For testimonies about his ministry click here...

Encountering the Father

Praise be to God!

Every week the Lord is revealing a different aspect of His glory to us and yesterday the Father began to reveal more and more of His love for us in our worship of Him and through His Word to us. This is what He showed us:

  1. The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord was upon Jesus. Is. 61:1; Luke 4:18
  2. Jesus was baptised in order to fulfill all righteousness. Mat. 3:15
  3. As Jesus came out of the waters of baptism, the Spirit of God came upon Him and remained on Him. Mark 1:10; John 1:33
  4. When the Spirit of the Father rested on His Son, the Father spoke His approval and love over His Son. Mark 1:11
  5. Jesus had revelation of the Father's love before He began His ministry - the work of the Father. Luke 3:23
  6. The uponness of the Spirit is the seal of the Father's approval. John 6:27
  7. The believer is baptised into Christ and made one with Him. 1 Cor. 12:13; Rom. 6; Phil. 2:1
  8. Through the believer's union with Christ, s/he is made righteous and therefore fulfills all righteousness - the believer is made right with God through Christ. 2 Cor. 5:21
  9. Since the believer is one with Christ, the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord rests on the believer as a seal of the Father's approval. 2 Cor. 1:21,22; Rev. 14:1
  10. The Father seals His children with His love before they do anything - it is by grace that we are made one with Jesus and are sealed with the Father's love. Eph. 2:8

After receiving this awesome revelation from God's Word, we spent time in the Father's presence, being anointed with oil as a symbol of the Father's seal of approval and receiving an outpouring of His love. Hallelujah!

Quote of the week:

"He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come." 2 Cor. 1:21,22

Living Word

Glory to our extraordinary God!

Apart from our regular men's prayer breakfast that the men of KLF have every Friday morning, we organised a joint prayer breakfast with the men of Treffpunkt Leben on Saturday morning. It is powerful when men get together to pray in unity and especially when the Body of Christ connects to pray into God's purposes for the Church, the city and the nation. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective and where the brothers dwell in unity, there the Lord commands His blessing (James 5:16; Psalm 133)! Hallelujah!

This past week we launched our Life Groups and we are excited about how the Lord is using these groups to help us connect with one another, care for one another, grow together and influence others together. For more information on our Life Groups please click here...

Yesterday we had an amazing time as we celebrated the Lord together. Looking at Luke 4:14-37, the Lord showed us that:

As God's extraordinary people own the extraordinary, and live according to the extraordinary, they will experience the extraordinary Kingdom of their extraordinary King!

We praise God for what He is revealing to us and it is wonderful to experience the truth of God's life-giving Word. Hallelujah!

Yesterday evening we had another special time with homeless and needy people at our monthly soup kitchen where we have the opportunity to share God's love, give people hope, provide food and clothing, and build life-giving relationships.

Glory to the Sovereign Lord!

Last week Thursday, Suzette Hattingh (Voice in the City) organised a prayer meeting for the Church in Frankfurt to join together in prayer for our city. The meeting was very powerful and many church leaders attended and voiced their concern for not honouring one another which led to a time of genuine reconciliation and forgiveness between the German leaders and the international leaders. The spirit of unity was tangible and we believe this was a prophetic statement of what God is doing in our city and in this nation. Hallelujah!

Yesterday the Lord spoke to us about how we need to respond to the vision He has given us as a church. He showed us that when He speaks to us we have a choice as to how we respond to Him. Basically there are 3 attitudes we can have:

  • Attitude #1: I know better - this person is above the Word. He judges the Word, is self-righteous and usually ignores the Word or revelation given to him.
  • Attitude #2: I know it already - this person is on the same level as the Word. He has a "familiar spirit," thinking he knows everything already and therefore relates God's Word only to what he already thinks he knows.
  • Attitude #3: I want to know - this person comes under the Word. He understands that he only "knows in part" and that when God speaks to him, the Spirit of God wants to reveal "the deep things of God" to him that are only revealed to those who submit to God's Word.
  • The apostle Paul had the attitude of "I want to know." Phil. 3:10
  • Paul wanted a greater revelation of Jesus and the Lord's purpose for him. Phil. 3:7-14
  • Paul lived to know Christ more and "to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of (him)." Phil. 3:10, 12
  • Paul received a revelation of the person of Jesus, the purpose of Jesus for Paul and the passion of Jesus for mankind. Acts 26:15-18
We need revelation of the person of Jesus to receive revelation of His passion which will compel us to fulfill the revelation of His purpose for us to redeem mankind.

The vision God has given us is based on these 3 principles:
  • We need revelation of who God is - His person: the "Sovereign Lord" Is. 61:1
  • We need revelation of God's purpose for KLF: "" Is. 61:1-3
  • We need revelation of God's passion for mankind: " bind proclaim bestow.." Is. 61:3
This week we are staring our Life Groups which form an essential part of a growing church. They help us connect with one another so that as we pursue the Kingdom Life together, we form genuine relationships, we care for one another, we grow together and we influence the lives of others. KLF has Life Groups that meet at various homes during the week in and around Frankfurt. For more information contact Alexander:

On Saturday we are having a joint men's prayer breakfast when the men of KLF will be getting together with the men of two other churches for breakfast, fellowship, teaching and prayer.
