The Shift and Strategic Alliances

The Shift and Strategic Alliances It’s been extremely subtle. A shift, growing in intensity, is underway. It emerges within the context of the unexpecteds, the distractions and wide swings of recent months. And with that shift is a focus on strategic alliances …. unusual strategic alliances. Alliances outside the boundaries of our typical religious thinking; […]


Convergence Since October 7th there has been a growing focus and concern from both the Church and the Jewish community concerning the flagrant rise of anti-Semitism, high-levels of anti-Jewish propaganda and blatant persecution …. and how these dimensions bear on the future of both Israel and the Church.

The Kingdom Reality

The Kingdom Reality “The Kingdom of God is at hand.” That’s how Jesus announced His earthly ministry. Jesus came bearing the realities of another dimension, a much higher dimension.

The Anointing

The Anointing The anointing is that dimension, that spiritual residue both gleaned and imparted from interactions with God. It becomes the defining difference in the relationships and circumstances of one’s life. While quite often wielded powerfully by eager, innocent yet uninitiated new believers, more often it is the subtle but underlying dimension that amasses from […]
