One of the last instructions Jesus gave His disciples before He ascended to the right hand of the Father is found in Matthew 28:18-20 which was to "make disciples of all nations..." As a whole, we, the church, have not done such a good job in this area.
In the area of early childhood development, recent research in the field of neuroscience has revealed the connection between proper nurturing and guidance and a child’s well-being. It’s the same in the church. Neglecting the commands of Christ concerning the nurturing and care of our “toddlers,” our new disciples, has resulted in a very dysfunctional church family.
Through many insights, we look at God’s way of creating a healthy spiritual family where all members are actively involved in the care and nurture of one another.
My wife, Shelley, and I have five children and have been married for 30 years. On January 19, 2004, she experienced a major stroke at the age of 44 that almost claimed her life. This dramatic experience changed our lives forever, setting the course for a "higher" calling.
A couple of months later, after receiving an ultimatum from my employer to commit long term or be indefinitely laid off, I left my job as a tool designer. In my heart I knew that the Lord was calling me to come work full time for Him.
We have been entrusted with a "trumpet-like" ministry to awaken the sleeping Bride in America. We must prepare our hearts to meet our Heavenly Bridegroom. The power of God that resurrected my bride is a sign of the power of God that will also resurrect His Bride. Though she appears in our nation to be almost dead, like Shelley was, she too will be revived through the difficult circumstances that are soon coming upon her.
The days ahead for our nation, as well as the entire world, are going to be extremely difficult. They will be used to expose the true condition of our hearts. Their purpose is to purify and prepare the chosen Bride of Christ. Our prayer is that the revelation of His truth in this time would be used to stir you up with a fresh determination to submit to the Holy Spirit's leading in your life, and to walk in holiness and purity in preparation to meet the Lord.
We must get ready to go behind the veil where no flesh will glory in His presence. Praise the Lord for the great things He is accomplishing in our day for His name's sake.
Serving Jesus Christ,
