But as for me, God’s closeness is my goodness, I have put my refuge in my LORD, So that I may relate all of Your mission. (Psalm 73:8, ArtScrolls Tehillim)
ArtScrolls Note: Literally, a מלאך (malach) messenger charged with transmitting God’s wishes. Similarly the psalmist perceives in his heart a flash of Divine inspiration which contains a message for mankind. He communicates this faithfully to his audience. The psalmist has no greater desire than to continue to discharge this duty.
Early in ministry, I sought the Lord as to “What am I?” This was to ascertain as to which of the five-fold ministry gifts He primarily saw me as. His answer from His Word was, I have called you “for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness….” (Acts 26:14)
The Local Church
We believe in the local church. We began and still have as our base a local church in Collinsville, Oklahoma, pastored by Reverend Lee Morgans.
Pray and Obey
As related through the opening Scripture, we aim at practicing the Presence of God, living in nearness to Him, so that we can ascertain and relate His mission and purpose through us. For we desire to faithfully fulfill the “good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10).
The Integrity of the Word
The Holy Scriptures are to be diligently studied and rightly divided.
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:18).
As well as to individuals, The Holy Scriptures speak to and of three groups of peoples:
“Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles (nations), nor to the church (ecclesia) of God” ( 1 Corinthians 10:32).
We are members of the third group, the Ecclesia, through faith in our resurrected Lord Jesus Christ. Our call as witness includes watching and proclaiming what is happening in these “end of days” in all three groups of peoples as prophesied in the Word of God.
This comes to pass by traveling to and being a part of happenings in Israel, Soviet Russia, modern-day Russia, Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada, South America, as well as throughout the U.S.A. We then give witness to what we see.
We proclaim our witness in churches, conferences, and through the tools of modern media such as, television, Internet webcasts and streaming, radio, and, of course, the printed page. Schools and Seminars are conducted regularly, including Seminar Tours and study in The Holy Land.
The Leadership of the Holy Spirit
“Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia, After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not” (Acts 16:6, 7).
Completely dependent upon The Holy Spirit’s guidance, so far Paul and the mission team only know where not to go. And then…
“…they passing by Mysia came down to Troas. And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us. And after HE had seen the vision immediately, WE endeavored to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them” (Acts 16:9, 10).
The Holy Spirit led through the visionary, Paul, then the team in unity followed that leading.
Through specific supernatural leadings of the Holy Spirit confirmed through the mouths of proven ministers, such as Phillip Halverson, the Lord has said to us, “You are to help the pray-ers.” Prayer at Prayer Mountain in the Ozarks is to “pray in the plans of God, and to stop the strategies of the enemy.” This happens through corporate prayer meetings and in log cabins provided for private prayer. Prayer we have come to see, is one of the most important ways to work with God in “the end of days.” In a World-Wide Prayer Meeting streamed live every Wednesday, pray-ers unite in Holy Spirit led prayer.
Going About in the Service of the Lord
Brother Phillip Halverson, a great praying man, once said to me, “Isn’t it good to go about in the service of the Lord.” We aim to do just that. And we attempt to follow our Lord’s example, “And Jesus went about…teaching…preaching…and healing every sickness and every disease among the people” (Matthew 9:35).
