Revival in Russia

The revival of a nation has everything to do with the repentance of the Church in the historical sins of the nation. This alone makes me think that the Russian Orthodox Church will play one of the primary roles in the coming revival in Russia. Orthodox Church in Russia is guilty of many historical sins – anti-Semitism, persecution and murder of the Old Believers, persecution of dissidents, alliance with the government. And no one can repent in those sins, but them. The Lord has to raise up intercessors and confessors from among them. Continue reading

So called Kundalini spirit in the Church

Some time ago I came across the warning issued by Andrew Strom about the Kundalini spirit in the church. Here is the link. It looks impressive – manifestations that look similar to what we see today in the revival circles. Was I convinced? Not really! Continue reading

Speaking the Truth

I was pondering Ephesian 4 and my attention was attracted by verses 17-27. Usually we pay attention to the first sixteen verses, where we see a wonderful revelation of the Body of Christ. But if we stop at verse 16, we will have in our hands a wonderful revelation without a practical key to practice it.

Wait for the Lord

One verse stuck to me today “Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him”. It is not easy to wait patiently for Him. It is not easy to accommodate our pace to His timing. Continue reading

Healings on the Streets

We have just had a team from England, helping us with “Healings on the Streets”. It was great! We had a wonderful seminar, some healings even at the seminar. Then we went to the streets – it is great just to be there with people, showing them the love of our Father. Right next to our spot there was a woman who was selling beverages. What a chance- we right away prayed for her. That is a kingdom style – grab any opportunity to be Jesus to people. Continue reading

“Christianity” is Really the Greatest Enemy of Christ by T. Austin-Sparks

I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; and I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come… (Haggai 2:6,7).

It seems a terrible thing, even to think, but as we have touched so very much of what is called ‘Christianity’ we are bound to believe that, because vast numbers who call themselves Christian are in an utterly false position, and the system itself has become so largely an earthly, traditional, formal, and unspiritual thing, this world-wide shaking is quite necessary and will be eventually justified.

Some Thoughts about War

Today in a bus I saw a veteran of WW2. He was in the military uniform, his chest covered with medals. All of a sudden it occurred to me that four years of war were the brightest years in his life. It was the time when he really felt alive – when his life was full of meaning. These years made him a hero, he fought for the right cause. He is still proud of that time, despite all the sufferings and losses he had to undergo. Continue reading

Father’s Love and Our Sin

Several days ago I read 2 Cor. 6:17-18:

Therefore come out from them and be separate,  says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, and you will  be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.

I’ve always understood this verse as meaning that, if we live in sin, God stops being our Father, and we become subject to His severe judgments. Only now I realized how perverted this understanding was. And how such theology is manipulative. It is the same old fear and attempt to force people into the kingdom by threat. Continue reading

Battle is Won

A GOOD LETTER FROM MY FRIEND DON HARDY (SPELLING PRESERVED):

OK dear brother, you asked about demons & d.experiences?  Let me lay a little ground work first: Continue reading

Amazed by Grace!

I am just amazed by God’s grace. God’s grace makes us strong, when we are weak. God’s grace makes us happy, when we are miserable. God’s grace makes us free, when we are in slavery. God’s grace uplifts us, when we are down. God’s grace is the invasion of God into our life.

There is a difference between law and grace. Law shows us what God wants us to be. Grace makes us what God wants us to be. Law makes us failures. Grace makes us victors. Law condemns. Grace justifies. Law brings death. Grace brings life. Law is a yoke. Grace is the wings.

Why not choose grace?
