Remembering The End Game Of Revival

Remembering The Endgame Of Revival

We are great forgetters and easy wanderers. It’s easy to get some truth, even to experience it deeply, but then to slip off into wrong thinking.
“Remain On at Ephesus”
This was Paul’s admonition to young Timothy. Paul had led these people to Christ in Ephesus and spent two years discipling them. He had sent Timothy at some point to continue the work.
Here he urges the young pastor to stay and keep teaching the people because error lurked at the door—but not the error we might think.
As I urged you upon my departure for Macedonia, remain on at Ephesus so that you may instruct certain men not to teach strange doctrines, nor to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which give rise to mere speculation rather than furthering the administration of God, which is by faith.
But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. For some men, straying from these things, have turned aside to fruitless discussion . . . (1 Timothy 1:3-6 NASB).
These men had the apostle Paul as their first, church-planting pastor! This was the apostle who wrote over two-thirds of what would become the New Testament. Yet before long, they were straying into heresy. They were missing the point of God’s truth.
We Have an Enemy
Jesus classified him as “a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44). His whole nature and scheme is to get us to believe wrong things—to divert us into what doesn’t matter. He will either keep us from the truth or, if we’ve found the truth, try to steer us slightly off into some silly, unfruitful discussion.
And he’s good at his task. He’s practiced for thousands of years, on better men than you or me.
Sound Doctrine
Sound doctrine is not only important; it is vital, particularly in seasons of revival where strong emotion is evident (and understandable). If we think wrongly and believe wrongly, soon we will live wrongly.
Paul knew this, and he knew that everyone needs good mentors and teachers and pastors in their life. We all need (even every pastor needs) leaders who will remind us that the endgame of all truth is the Great Commandment: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength, and love others as you love yourself (Mark 12:30-31).
If the focus of your thinking is some tangent thought that exalts your theory or ideas—some wild, “new thing” where you are heralded as the great prophet—you’re missing the point. If your brand of revival thought is not producing deep love for Jesus Christ and Him alone, something is dreadfully wrong.
The Great Theme
The overarching theme of the Welsh Revival was the overwhelming love of Christ and a passionate love for Christ. The theme song of this mighty work of God, which spread across the world, was “Here Is Love.”
Here is love, vast as the ocean,
Loving kindness as the flood,
When the Prince of Life, our ransom,
Shed for us His precious blood.
Who His love will not remember,
Who can cease to sing His praise?
He can never be forgotten,
Throughout heaven’s eternal days.
On the mount of crucifixion,
Fountains opened deep and wide;
Through the floodgates of God’s mercy
Flowed a vast and gracious tide.
Grace and love, like mighty rivers,
Poured incessant from above;
Heaven’s peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love.
Tragically, Jesus’ later indictment of this same Ephesian church was, “You have left your first love” (Revelation 2:4). They were missing the point of experiential truth—truth designed to lead them into intimacy with Christ and a burden for others.
A hot-hearted, truth-fed passion for Jesus is our need, and it’s the goal of real revival: a love that sets us ablaze for Him and for the world He loves.

Partnerships in Place for 2016

We were very honored today to become partners with Dutch Sheets Ministries.. This partnership flows right along with what I will be preaching on Revival and history.. I like this ministry because they do not play games and are not rude.  The book by Dutch on Appeal To Heaven has had a major impact already on my thinking and my ministry..
We also made a new year pledge to the Partnership with Perry Stone Ministries as well... We are believing God for Revival as never before and along with our Partnerships with the ministries of TRBC (Liberty Church Network,Gleaning for the World, Liberty Godparent Home, etc..), this rounds out our major partnerships for 2016.. There are a few other ministries we give to regularly at lesser scales.
Most of our extra giving will be shaped around building strong and solid Local Churches........ Blessings, Len

We are getting very excited about a brand new season... God has been birthing a word in season in our hearts and to follow most of the up to the minute info of the ministry please follow Len on Twitter @pastorlen .. The 35th year events begin in January and we plan on giving away a lot of neat things next year to help in peoples spiritual lives. Today, we taped a devotional called The Moth and The Cockroach... that will be posted on the connect site soon.. It deals with the reaction people have to the light of truth based on the nature within them. This is taken from a full length message soon to air on radio. We really both appreciate the blessing of being on Christopher Tanner's radio program last Friday and look forward to combining efforts many times with our friends in Topeka. Next week Len will do a couple book promo's on the connect site so please be watching for that...

Repost from Christian post : Great Word by Matt Chandler

The words "the forgiveness of sins" in the Apostles' Creed are so important for Christian believers to understand and live out that they cannot reflect the authenticity of their faith, and that of the Church, without it, said Pastor Matt Chandler of The Village Church in Texas, who is teaching his congregation the meaning and relevance of the statement of faith through a series of sermons.
As humans, we love others to get punished, and also love to watch them get punished, said Chandler in his message, "The Forgiveness of Sins."
"We live in a world where outrage is all the rage… We live in a punishment-obsessed world," he said, and added, "But for the people of God, this should not be so."
The Apostle's Creed is so designed that we first look at the doctrine and then its application in our lives, Chandler explained, and then said the forgiveness of sins is about the latter.
It has two points. One, that "God forgives." And two, that "the communion of saints becomes the platform on which the forgiveness of God is made visible to the world around us."
After Aaron built a golden calf in the absence of Moses and for the Israelites to worship, and when the people began to drink alcohol and possibly indulge in sexual acts, God could have destroyed them, but He didn't, the pastor told the congregation.
He read out Exodus 34:5-9, "Then the Lord came down in the cloud and stood there with him and proclaimed his name, the Lord. And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, 'The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.' Moses bowed to the ground at once and worshipped. 'Lord,' he said, 'if I have found favour in your eyes, then let the Lord go with us. Although this is a stiff-necked people, forgive our wickedness and our sin, and take us as your inheritance.'"
The pastor then asked the congregation to ask themselves if they really believe that God is compassionate, gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.

Forgiveness is the ultimate expression of the Godhead in all He is," Chandler said, and defined
forgiveness as "releasing someone from their wrongs fully, freely and forever."
"What does God forgive us of?" he asked, and then answered through verse 7 in the passage: wickedness or iniquity, rebellion or transgression, and sin.
Iniquity is a premeditated choice that carries with it some continuing disregard for repentance, Pastor Chandler explained. We don't stumble into a murder or adultery; we commit these things because of our premeditated choice wherein we refuse to listen to our conscience or the Holy Spirit.
"God forgives this. You haven't gone too far," he said, explaining that it's a lie when we think we've gone too deep into a sin and cannot turn away from it. It's not too late, and God's forgiveness if available right now, he stressed.
Transgression, he explained, is a presumptuous sin, an arrogant sin. You decide in the moment you'd do it, it's when you give yourself to your appetites. You know it's a sin, but you don't care.
God forgives this, too, Chandler said. You've not gone too far; it's not too late, he repeated.
Sin, in its basic meaning, is to miss the mark. It's failing to do something that you know is right. Iniquity and transgression could sit under the umbrella of sin, he explained.

God forgives this, too, Chandler added. There's no sin in your life that God cannot forgive or does not desire to forgive. "You haven't gone too far; He already sees and knows; it's paid for. Take the offer of forgiveness because God is serious about sin."
He added: "God hates sin with a kind of wrath that's hard to get our heads around." Because God loves us so much, He hates sin so much, because sin harms us so much, he explained.
Though our children do not have to give account for our sins, they are affected by our sins, the pastor warned. "Sin carries with it collateral damage. When you sin against God, you also sin against others."
Forgiveness of sins is equally about community, not just about you and the Lord, Chandler stressed. There are communal ramifications of sin. "People of God are never so authentic as when they confess their sins to one another, and they forgive one another. It's a stage on which God's forgiveness is seen and marveled at."
He went on to state, "The real church forgives. The people of God forgive because they've been forgiven."
Forgiving others is a command, and not forgiving amounts to an attempt to play a just God, which we are not, he said.
Some wounds can be so deep that forgiveness could seem impossible, Pastor Chandler admitted, and said that God would eventually strengthen those who are experiencing that, and free them from that state.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer called forgives "a breakthrough to community," Chandler told the congregation, and quoted him, "In a very real way, forgiveness is not just about absolving guilt, but is also a reminder of what communion with God and with one another can and should be."
The megachurch pastor concluded the sermon by saying that God is like the God in the parable of the prodigal son in the Gospel of Luke in the New Testament.

Helping Those In Need - Homeless - Social Experiment

When Lance stepped up to the counter at McDonald's and asked for 100 McDoubles, the cashier thought it was all a joke. But when he started selflessly passing out food to the homeless, my heart was touched. This teen and his friends are amazing role models for the young generation!

Why We Are Donors To Liberty Church Network and TRBC

Hello Friends, I wanted to stop by after my radio program and talk with you a few moments about why Angie and I are stoked about the vision of LCN and plan on partnering with them as God provides. First let me say that we have been hearing in prayer about this for over a year now. So much of what they are doing in the Kingdom at such a time as this were things I dreamed about as a young 18 year old preacher in 1981 and throughout my entire ministry spanning some 35 years now... Not just LCN but all the outreaches of TRBC were like they were tailor made.
The thing I really love about them is they compete with no one, they compare themselves with no one, they just DO the great commission of our Lord!!
Alot of things I saw in my spirit as a young man, I have never been allowed by the Lord to accomplish myself; such as the building of a huge Camp where thousands will get saved, building a network of other ministries, building a large Christian University, etc..... I have walked out the plan of God for my life the best I knew how and God has brought me to such a time as this and for some reason this Charismatic preacher has been brought into contact with the Great folks in Lynchburg...
Every time I sow a seed into these great outreaches, I go back to the woods again where I walked and prayed and saw these things for the very first time.. In that sense, I am fulfilling what God put into my heart vicariously through them.. Of course we still do all we can... We Must... Its not enough to give and have someone else do your work for you but God has plans in mind for my preaching ministry in small churches that are unique to His own heart and I am just humbled that He uses me at all.....

Souls are being saved through these outreaches , which is the number one priority.. The potential is amazing..
 This is what GOD told us to do... To give, to attend as many of the functions as we can, to spread by word of mouth what these folks are doing in the Kingdom.. Sure we will help other ministries also, ministries of all sizes, as the Lord leads.. Of Course! But when God began to speak to Angie and I about the long haul, this is where He led us.. This involvement is how I will be raptured or leave the planet by death. Its my dream.. From my earliest days, in my heart, I have seen it..
This is not for another person to decide. This is on me. I do not plan to lose out on my destiny.. Oh, I have made many mistakes in my life that have cost me dearly, but failing to Plug In to this will not be one of them....

So I hope you have heard my heart despite the ramblings.. I love the vision of Liberty, TRBC, and all their outreaches.. Souls! Thats the bottom line for me... Vision and Souls....

Here is a excerpt from an email they just sent out: "It was a great kick-off to the new Liberty Church Network, and we are excited that you want to be a part of it. It was exciting to hear the new vision that Jonathan Falwell shared with us to make 1,000,000 new disciples by 2025. We are looking forward to the days ahead of helping all of our LCN churches become better disciple-making churches.
We are still in the process of gathering all of the data and reaching out to each of our LCN churches to determine who is all-in with us. We have over 150 new churches from that evening that have indicated that they want to be a part of the new LCN. We also have another 800+ churches that are in the process of learning more about the new LCN and deciding if they want to be a part of our new mission. That makes almost 1,000 churches! What a great start to the launch of this new initiative to make 1,000,000 disciples by 2025."

1,000,000 disciples by 2025... Thats awesome... 
God bless you all today,
Len

A New Year: A New Season

Hi Everyone,  Angie and I are so very excited about 2016!! I will be celebrating 35 years in the ministry and We have been married for 23 of those years doing this together.....

There will be a special event each month in addition to our regular ministry functions and starting next year, most all the posting will be done at THIS site right here.... We have felt for a very long time, the need to develop relationships based on face to face encounter and mutual walks rather than just the online version of relationships (both are important). So, while we recognize the importance of online communication, it will basically be directed here.  We will also use sites to share links from the material but over time are believing that most of you will glean from the material right here..

We are merging with several established ministries into Apostolic teams of sorts and are quite excited at this prospect. My goal for these years of my life is to pour myself out for Christ in connection and not isolated. We have been given by the Lord several who truly believe in our vision and desire to learn so the set up is there and I am ready. We have been sharing videos from several of the outreaches we will be connected to and shall continue to do that.  I am meeting just this week with Minister friends from Kansas, Virginia, and Ohio who are anxious to be involved in this season and the meetings have been awesome and productive.

We will be in Bath MI December 2 and 3 and this meeting will include prayer at the MI State Capitol..

To all who stand with us: we appreciate your support and all that you help us to accomplish in Jesus Name... One of our new priorities in 2016 is connecting with as many prayer groups across the country as we can and helping to start and equip as many new ones as we can! Prayer still changes things!! Prayer can still change You!! Prayer can change America!!
This along with our commitments to the  ministries of TRBC and Liberty will be a major thrust as we go along throughout the 35 yr celebration year.  We have already been able to start 2 prayer groups that will stay connected and there are several more in the wings. We are also praying about planting a church as well as supporting the several we already do that train local pastors..
I will try and post more updates very soon and tell you about the Jan 2016 special event also..
God bless you all today,
Len

Persecution. Org

Help us break the silence. Christian persecution across the globe goes largely unreported and what is reported receives little if any attention from the Western media. You can help spread the word by linking to www.persecution.org from your blog or personal webpage. CC is your source for news on Christian persecution around the world. We're constantly monitoring more than 35 countries to report on the persecution of Christians and fill the gap that the mainstream Western media leaves wide open. By creating awareness, we are giving a voice to suffering believers around the world. Once their stories are heard, we act as a bridge for the nations to respond to their cries by providing effective assistance and advocacy on their behalf.

THIS POST WILL ALWAYS BE DISPLAYED AT THE FOOTER OF THIS SITE.....

Update Sept 29

Someone asked me what we were going to do in light of recent prophetic events, blood moon included, and my response is simple. I am going to continue preaching what God gives me to preach, occupying until He comes. I do not tremble in my boots because the world and half the church doesn't like the message! There is going to be a major outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the midst of all the upheaval and all that matters to me is pleasing the Lord with what we preach and what we support. Lots of great plans and a few surprises for next year! Thank you to all who are taking the journey with Angie and I. We have both had a flurry of health issues and have appreciated your support. We sincerely hope to get to your areas or at least close for a meeting next year!! Don't fear, we will never stop handling the word as God gives it to us; by His Grace.. The choice has been made! Shalom!!

I will never change the message but rather obey God and preach what He gives me!! Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Ezekiel, Paul, John etc.... Were not popular in their time but were true to the Word of God.. So too must we be! If I see the bridge out, I am compelled to warn the travelers.. We have been led due to circumstances to cancel out some previous commitments and funnel some finances in other directions beginning immediately..  


Thanks for all the prayers and true friendship.. Blessings..

Update Sept 27

Read the book of Acts and get ready!! Ready for revival.. Ready for fresh miracles.. Ready for Persecution !! All who live Godly in Christ WILL suffer persecution... 2 Timothy 3:12!! There will be two streams flowing side by side.. Glory and darkness.. God is gathering His harvest and the days appointed are numbered. Look to Christ not government of man for your hope! Jesus Rules!

2/3 of the worlds Christians live in dangerous, dangerous places where they daily are faced with persecution... Many do not even possess a complete Bible....Yet, they are deeply consecrated and each year about 8 to 10 Thousand are martyred around the world.....How must Almighty God look at a people with more Bibles, more freedom, more open and established Churches, and still they live unconsecrated lives with rebellious hearts and attitudes independent of Christ? Wake up church in America... Repent and draw close to the Lord; smite the ites that are harassing you with the sword of the Spirit; consecrate your hearts..... We are in for a ride...

While preparing for the return of the Bridegroom, the church is about to undergo a major transformation as God restores true Apostolic authority in the Body of Christ!! There will be a major shaking, foolishness will be cast aside in favor of truth. Guard your heart against offense to remain useable and trust His plan.. No turning back now. God Speed!!

Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Update: Sept 16 2015

Well Praise God!! The offerings from this weekend will allow us to place 250 Bibles in the hands of a missionary in Mexico..... Next week we are talking to a group in Belize where we hope to send at least that many.... GBU FB friends.. On radio next week there will be a tag team preaching episode on one of the days... Len and Keith will be letting it fly!

Every Christian is called to the ministry of prayer.... Most reject it because no one see's them.. I will tell you if you are not praying you are straying. Presence driven ministry is the only ministry with Gods stamp on it!

John Wesley once said , "Once in seven years I burn all my sermons; for it is a shame if I cannot write better sermons now than I did seven years ago.”
All new messages coming to radio starting the end of October..... We will have speaker openings for revival messages over the next 18 months... Send your MP3's and I will listen to them. and remember, On your way to Canaan (Land of God's promise to you) please do not tarry long in Haran (Land of small fruit)........ Gen. 12

Here are 4 truths God brought to my mind today in a time of prayer.
1-God wants us to move Forward by Faith Each day…..
2-Even when we do not see any tangible progress or results, He Does. God sees the hearts of people that we cannot see..
3-God is at work on us in every area of our lives and He is preparing us for greater and better things all the time..
4-When we trust the Lord, He will move on our behalf.

Study the Word.

The time that you spend in the Word and In Prayer is the most valuable time in your entire day. When the believer delights in God in this way God always reveals more of Himself..  Let me encourage all of you this day, Pursue God through prayer and study of the Word. We always attain what we pursue and truly if we want it bad enough, we will make time for it!  In 35 years of Bible Study I have never once been sorry for the time I have spent pursuing it... God bless you all!!

Wednesday, September 9, 2015

Update Sept. 9 2015

Your realm of authority is contained in your call... Don't go beyond that and assume what God has not given you... Function in your role and let others function within theirs.. We are going to see God set these things right in His church.... If you want to know how to be a good Pastor; ask one who has succeeded . If you want to be a good Evangelist, follow evangelists that have succeeded,(By Gods Definition of Success) etc... etc..... Same thing in the secular world.... Lots of clerks "think" they know what a doctor ought to do.... etc..etc.. God is restoring order and Apostolic authority to His last days church. Walk in your calling and refrain from judging in area's you have not been set by the Lord. Concentrate on winning your friends, families, and neighbors to the Lord... Run your race... Its almost home time..

We are getting everything in place to begin touring the revival sites starting with Charles Finney sites in Oberlin Ohio in October... Anyone in the area wanting to meet up, message me....  "Stay Under the Blood and Walk in Continual Repentance... Lay aside all you hold against anyone and Watch God do some real miracles in your life.. Miracles coming solely from Him that flesh could never accomplish."..

Forgive us O Lord. We have sinned against you in our prayerlessness. We have sinned against you in our silence and in our adopting the values of the world system. Lord, we have sinned in our complacency and lethargic slumber while your arch enemy made his advancements. Lord Forgive us! Wash us in your Blood. Cause your Fire to burn within the church in America and the Church at Large once again!

Sunday, September 6, 2015

Update: Sept 6 2015

I said I would share some thought about some dreams I have been having so here it goes... I have repeatedly been seeing huge splits in the earth surface and fires burning across the USA... In each dream the Lord's messenger approaches me and says Do not be afraid and hands me a Trumpet.. I believe He is saying to warn His people about a coming storm. Some may ridicule this, but its what i dream nonetheless. In one dream, one group of people were distraught and another was encouraged to gather their baskets and "harvest". Which I took to mean that we as Christians must be concerned with gathering the Lord's end time harvest at this time. Also, anytime there is judgement, its purpose is to cause people to repent and change and thusly be restored. In this dispensation, God is dealing in Mercy even in judgement.. This is not yet the Great tribulation. Gods purposes for all of us and for Nations of the world at this time is still restoration... PRAY AND SEEK GOD AS NEVER BEFORE..... Put away all sin, anger, discord, etc....... God will open doors for you to Harvest in this time...... More coming in a couple days..

In 1 Peter 4:17 " For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?" Listen friends, Judgement will come to His people first... For Gossiping, For bearing Grudges, for idle talk, for all sins of the flesh and spirit..... PUT AWAY YOUR OLD MAN and PUT ON THE NEW MAN... CONTROL THOSE EMOTIONS BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT..... REPENT AND TURN TOWARD CHRIST.... We are in for a ride!!!! Remember, the purpose of judgement in this dispensation is to RESTORE TO A PROPER POSITION...... Heed the warnings.. Yield To His Holy Spirit..............

Chinese and Russian ships off our coasts right now..... Gay marriage desecration.... Shemitah..... EMP threats.... economic woes.... ARE YOU READY TO FAST AND PRAY YET??? REPENT AND TURN BACK TO JESUS.... Please hear me... I do not know what is going to happen or when... But..... SOMETHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN.... Are YOU right with the Lord... I am just going to say it straight... WHEN THIS ADMINISTRATION STARTS JAILING THE RIGHTEOUS,,, GODS JUDGEMENT IS AT OUR DOOR...STOP WASTING TIME AND COMMIT TO PRAYER !!!!! NOW!!!

The Lord has been telling me for months that what He is giving me to share with church folk will cause some to be angered.. He has also told me NOT to spend hours on social media but stay in the place of prayer. He has those He will send our way anyway. Those that want the meat of what we post. Here are a couple things in my spirit: Life as we know may be about to totally change.. there is no more time for games!!! I am by far Not the only voice hearing these things from the Spirit and sharing them. I will be mocked and even hated but nonetheless I will say what God has given me and do what HE has told me. Our Present administration has put this country in a terrible position before God and there is no time left to be offended, prayerless, spineless, gutless, or hurt.... WE NEED TO CRY OUT TO GOD AS NEVER BEFORE.... I dont care what anyone thinks about me. Judgement is coming.. I need those of you who stand with Angie and I as a Ministry to Go to your prayer rooms on our behalf.... I will be posting alot of what God is giving me in the prayer room... The Secret Place... The War Room...... I will get right back off and into this serious business of ministry in this time.... I am not ignoring anyone if I don't respond to your posts and comments... We are busy with this situation and getting some preps in place as well... I love you all.

One Cry intercessors

Hello, OneCry Intercessors!
 
When our nation faced the devastation and crises of a terror attack 14 years ago, many responded with a broken and desperate outcry to God.  As the anniversary of this tragic day approaches, America still finds itself in crises…not form the immediate threat of foreign terrorism, but from the more imminent danger of spiritual collapse brought on by moral degradation and the abandonment of the God who established us as a people.   

We find ourselves a nation that has largely rejected the Godly heritage and principles it was founded on.  As the idealistic children of our founding fathers, only the grace and power of God can turn our hearts back to the One upon whom they desperately relied.

In response to this growing need, the annual Cry Out America prayer initiative will be held September 11th.  On that day, you can join believers from across the nation as they gather locally to humble themselves and desperately plead with God for a Christ-centered spiritual awakening at the national level.

As part of the One Cry prayer team, we encourage you to be a part of this special time of corporate assembly.

To find out more about Cry Out America and learn how to connect with or host a local gathering, visit Awakening America at: http://awakeningamerica.us.  There is also a brochure available to print http://awakeningamerica.us/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/COA-Broch-2015.pdf

Please also pray for: Bill Elliff as he leads 300-500 pastors at the Arkansas Pastor's Prayer Gathering today, August 31st and tomorrow September 1st.

 
Thank you for praying!
Michael Pool



Angie and I have been in the One Cry movement for a couple years now and are honored to participate..

Announcement #2 New Season Update.

Greetings everyone in the Name of Jesus.. I am now in my second week of pulling away from social media a bit for fasting and prayer as Angie and I enter in a new season of our ministry to the Body Of Christ!  Every time God wants to do a great thing in your life the enemy will always cause someone to act up and be 'offended' by it but thats ok if ones eyes are on Jesus as ours are in this time.. You see I have learned to follow God over people irrespective as to their reactions to what God wants done... So, we have never been more encouraged, happier, or content with what God has for us as we are now!  I am really enjoying this time in my secret place and will continue it as long as God directs.. The main folks we are working with in the years to come on the larger scale are very supportive and in total agreement with me on the matter.


As most of you know next year is my 35 years in ministry year and we will be having special events, revivals, and activities all year in 2016. I will be working closely with ministers and ministries that have asked me to speak into their lives and ministries. A major focus for us will be helping Pastors to build the local church as opposed to isolated ministries. This is the very thing God showed me would be coming for me years ago. There have been several prophetic words given to me, many by people in overseas ministries that I don't even know that have accurately forecasted God placing us before ministers and other leaders in this key time. While we certainly wish we could be of assistance to everyone and occasionally will help other projects, most will be in this vein and regard. In future posts I will be sharing some of the projects with you all in detail. Very soon now we will be releasing information on each months special activities for 2016. They will be varied and diverse. We already have the plans for Jan. and Feb activities planned.. Keep watching this site for up to date info.

The main purpose of this second announcement is to tell everyone that we are increasing the time of our Tuesday and Thursday radio shows from 90 to 120 minutes very shortly and adding extra broadcast days as we are able with our schedules. The content of the shows will stay pretty much the same as it has been.. Media is a great way to reach many people with the Gospel and we plan to increase the media outreach in the coming months.. Also I wanted to mention that we are using our Vimeo channel as the main video outreach because You Tube keeps erasing views and info from our channel there. The video outreach is really doing well by the way and I thank those who are regular viewers.  Regulars will get alot of perks in the next year of ministry. Otherwise, not a whole of new info at this time. I am holding back some of the bigger things until closer to the time for them to occur. This time of consecration has served to assist me in the focus of the pursuit. God is birthing a strong prophetic word of revival in me that some will not receive and I need the strength of the Lord to stand firm and proclaim His message in these critical days. Thank you so much to the faithful among you who continue to follow the daily posts even in my personal absence. You are the caliber of folks we will be working with and desiring to work with.. Shalom and God bless and Keep you....
This is a pic of my newest preaching and study, research Bible. Its an Allan Blue Scottish Calfskin KJV and I love it very much... The Lord has sent some friends into my life that have blessed me with some wishlist items I have been wanting and I want to thank them so much..

New message video's will be posted soon here on this site so please, share them with friends and family. Sharing is so very important because it multiplies our Kingdom efforts.. I will catch you all later.. God bless...

21 days Consecration Aug 14 - Sept 4

Hello again my dear friends and Partners,

I thought today would be the perfect time to add another update. As we start this brand new season of ministry, I feel God leading me into a 21 day Prayer, Fasting and Consecration time where I can do little else than pursue His Presence.... I will be spending extended periods of time in the Woods with my Bible and other material God has spoken to me of! I always try and maintain a good prayer life but this will be  a time of extended seeking of the Lord from Aug 14 through Sept 4.....

My heart is to know His heart.... No more no less! Far too many in leadership today live almost totally in the flesh and play emotional games with people in their lives.. One thing God has promises to do in me through Prayer and Fasting and Consecration is to produce in me an unintimatable spirit of  Holy Boldness to expose these false spirits that gain authority in Believers lives...
So I would appreciate all your prayers at this time. God is about to take us deep and do amazing things throughout the earth.. We of course, desire to be right there on the frontlines; on the cutting edge of what God is doing... Thanks Peeps..
ps..... I will be updating here often during this time but I will not be on FB much until after Sept 4.......

Announcement Number 1

If You Will Be Praying For Us Please Hit Like On This Post To Let Us Know...
Well Friends, I have been telling you for awhile now that there were some major changes coming in the ministry and I was waiting for the green light to go ahead and begin talking about them. As we are streaming the OCI service with some friends, the confirmations came and we are now ready to begin this sharing process. The first thing I would ask you to do is pray for us. If this ministry has been a blessing to you in any way then we need your prayers as never before.. This whole step will be a 100% step of faith for Angie and I. I am going to be sharing much more in the coming weeks but God has, I believe for such a time as this, set us apart for a season of nothing but Church Planting efforts that will take the bulk of time, energy and finances. And in that perspective, I will say that we are taking a limited amount of extended meetings from here on out (if you want us to come lets book it because there are 15 spots per year and thats max . we would accept more only at the Lords command....this doesnt include the one day meetings we will accept..) and I will be doubling the amount of broadcast time soon. God specifically told me to spend time feeding the ones who have asked Angie and I to speak into their lives and ministries. The fastest way to do that is Media preaching. Then, the time we will spend in their individual churches. We will continue to help plant churches in honor of my Mom and helping the Pastors to form Apostolic teams to go forth from the local church. And the last thing I will mention tonight is we are establishing a Prayer center where we can make certain that all the hundreds of prayer requests which have started coming in will be constantly covered. We need as many of you as would feel led to begin to earnestly pray for us. This total restructuring is something I will be explaining more as time goes by.. I will be sharing mostly on my connect site but There will be a whole new partnership program that I think you will find exciting so if you are not following my site I will put the link in the comment on this post.. Please follow the connect site by email and be looking for these announcements and Partnership packages.. God bless you.. I will be off FB for a couple days working on this so again, Follow that connect site.... Blessings my friends... Angie will be posting for me for a few days...

I am stepping away from computer at this time.. Everyone who commits to standing with us by hitting like on this post I will be sending you the link to our radio channel that you can bookmark.. We are about to go deep and speak life to every realm of our beings.. You may want to make this a part of your regular listening..

One quick add about the prayer center; it will include a distribution center so that when someone is in one of our meetings or one of my sisters outreaches or on radio battling some problem, or in need of a Bible, etc... we can send it to them Free... Also, we are going into small churches that cannot afford it but have asked us to come.. We go At No Charge to them.. We allow them to give their best offering but we count on our monthly partners to pay for these outreach revivals... We need about 50 more each month at our present level..

July 30 Update

Dear Friends and Partners,

Angie and I had a great time at the Perry Stone Summer Reformation in Cleveland TN.... God moved in hearts and lives in a mighty way.
The Lord is giving birth to some 'new' things in our spirits and as we go forward I will be sharing much of it with you.. I have been hearing the new direction He has for us in my spirit for quite some time and the Lord has released me to start making the new announcements in October, starting on Oct 16.....  There are alot, and I mean alot of changes coming for us at Cross Chapel and Acts 26:18 Ministries and Gods hand is all over this...

Here are 2 recent nuggets I posted on my FB page:

"God was dealing with me about the Anointing.... You see you cannot walk in the anointing of His Purpose without pursuing His presence... Its not automatic that a good idea is just going to put you over... Its not the same as salvation where the ground is level and the cost is free... The price of walking in the anointing is the pursuit of His presence... There are millions who are saved but not walking in the anointing to accomplish their purpose because they are preoccupied with life and cares......When He is our life and desire, He manifests His presence and smears His Anointing all over the believer... Its my desire to chase Him everyday, all day long and see Him..... Download time.... Thanks for praying for us and God bless you saints....."

And...........

"A great separation is coming..... Those who want to go to church once a week, utilize convenience driven commitment, pursue their own desires and goals, and just have good 'religion'.. will stand in stark contrast to the real remnant of believers who purpose to inconvenience themselves in pursuit of His plan and desires and goals, will follow the presence of God and give heed to the prophets, create times to gather together to bask in the Glory, and have reaching lost souls in their focus while serving in anothers vision.. a shaking, a separation, and a shifting are on the horizon big time........"

Angie and I are looking forward to several upcoming meetings in August... We love you all... God bless you!!

Great Quote By William Tyndale


Evangelion (which we call the gospel) is a Greek word and signifies good, merry, glad and joyful tidings, that makes a man’s heart glad, and makes him sing, dance, and leap for joy. . . . Christ before His death commanded and appointed that such Evangelion, gospel, or tidings should be declared throughout all the world, and with such to give unto all that repent, and believe, all his goods: that is to say, His life, by which he swallowed and devoured up death; His righteousness, by which He banished sin; His salvation, by which He overcame eternal damnation. Now can the wretched man (that knows himself to be wrapped in sin, and in danger to death and hell) hear no more joyous a thing, than such glad and comfortable tidings of Christ so that he cannot but be glad, and laugh from the very bottom of his heart, if he believe that these tidings are true.
—William Tyndale

New Release From The Neverclaim This Friday.....

We are super excited about the new release this Friday from The Neverclaim... Heard previews yesterday and this is going to be a powerful album.. I totally believe the statement from Westminister that says Mans chief aim is to Glorify God and to enjoy Him Forever.... We are so stoked about this record because it helps to do just that!

Beans and Rice.... A summer of miracles

On June 21st, Fathers day and the first day of summer, we accepted as a Ministry a Beans and Rice Challenge for Latin America and South America, for the entire summer, ending on Sept. 23..... We are believing God for this to be miraculous. After the challenge we will report here  on What God has done. But what I wanted to testify to was that at 1:30 am this morning God dropped it in my husbands heart, a little saying, Miracles are coming!!!! Will you dear friends come into agreement with us that Miracles are coming? And for any interested in sowing into this, please use the link on the right hand side of the page... This is all a part of the direction that when God releases him Len will be telling you about... Thanks so much and remember, Miracles are coming!!!!

Parallels in the Time of Judges and USA and A Warrior's Heart: By Len Paxton

Bluetree Worship and Justice

Angie and I have been supports of World Orphans ministry for a long time and we were honored to be a part of 2 nights on the Bluetree  World Orphans Worship and Justice Tour. We were at Kalkaska and Traverse City MI... Seeing where the dollars go is always a blessing. Hearing the inspiring stories and watching others form partnerships is always amazing!!

Here are some statements about World Orphans from their website, which we do have linked on right also:
"To empower the church to care for orphans – until they all have homes!

We equip, inspire, and mobilize the church to care for orphans and vulnerable children. Churches engaged. Children restored. Communities transformed by the Gospel of Christ.

We value relationships, humility, grace, family, the wholistic care of children and our staff, and are striving to do ministry with excellence."


The last statement is very, very, very, very important to me personally... After years of trying to work with so many the Lord has finally gotten it through to me to work with those who work with you.. Those who show an active interest in what God has you doing.. Dont just settle for the 50% ers... Go for the "All In"....

I will be writing more on that later, but for now, I want to encourage all of you to check out Bluetree and World Orphans as well as the great group playing with Bluetree; The Informants...

I will try to have music on hand at my events throughout the year.. God bless

Ep 573 Self Centeredness by Angus Buchan

Ep 573 Self Centeredness from Angus Buchan on Vimeo.

June 16 Update

Well Praise The Lord everyone!

I am coming to you today after my show and updating you on the next couple weeks.  If you have noticed, I have added some new links on the right hand side of the screen. The Lord gave us a very specific word a few days back: He Said, Re-Dig some of the old wells... Angie and I knew instantly what the Lord was talking about and so we made reconnection with the Legacy of Dr. Lester Sumrall and LeSea Ministries.  This of course includes supporting all the various aspects of their outreach. We just believe that when you connect with a ministry you CONNECT!  God works just that way. Amen!
We are so very thankful for our many partners who treat us that way also.. Partnership is powerful.

Someone said to me a few weeks ago, "Let me know when you are doing a project I want to help".. Well, We are always busy and we really need those who will just send an offering every month or as often as possible and it will always get put to good use. We have so many who stand with us each month.. Many blessings to you.

This Friday Angie and I will be at The Bluetree concert in Kalkaska benefiting World Orphans. Angie and I have been partners with World Orphans for a little over a year now.. For those who do not know, Bluetree is an awesome Worship band from Ireland. We will be there encouraging people to help sponsor orphans.
Then June 26 we will get to the Big Ticket Festival at 2pm and will be there all day June 27 also.. Looking forward to seeing Peter Furler, Newsboys, Disciple, Random Hero, Chris Tomlin and so many other friends and artists. We were only going to go to BTF on Saturday at first but have also freed up half a day Friday on my schedule. Its a great time to connect with us partners and we would love to meet each of you.

On Radio right now, I will be wrapping up my series on the Holy Spirit and then airing a guest message right before we do a special study on The Anti-Christ... This study will be chocked full of scripture and you will not want to miss it..
On the Telecast the latest tour from Virginia and Georgia is airing right now. Many people have said they love tuning in for the battlefield and historical location programs most of all. This time out we actually recorded enough material for 7 weeks worth of programs. We will be in Virginia again for sure in October if I do not get a meeting there sooner.... Always open to do services in Virginia. Its my favorite place! (Many Smiles).......

This summer we will be holding meetings in South Bend IN, Grand Rapids MI, and Hartford City IN. Plus we will be taping on location in several stops throughout TN, VA, and OH. This Fall I have several meetings which I will update you on later!

Here are some nuggets from my FB Page:

Disciple is not a name for a 'higher level' Christian. According to the Word in Acts 11:26, disciples ( those who deny self ; take up their Cross and follow Jesus) are the only kind of real Christians there are. Church Members may or may not be disciples therefore, may or may not be Christians.............

People who pick and choose the 'word' they want to hear based on their own standards and the style of Gods Messenger will not be very usable by God in these last days days... We do not always need a soft word and you do NOT get to pick the messenger God desires for you to receive from at a given moment... We really must grow up in these areas if we are to ever be used of God...

Fear of Criticism is the very kiss of death to Godly achievement! While loose gums flap in the breeze; keep preaching truth, keep getting people saved, keep leading people to the Lord to meet all their needs. The cause is so much higher than any of us ... Don't quit trying and don't give up just because someone shot you down.. Receive Constructive criticism and refuse idle talk... I don't know who this for tonight but CHEER UP!! GOD has put DESTINY within You.....

What you Do doesn't affect God's heart towards you , but it will affect your heart toward Him.... If you are not seeking God He will love you just the same, but you won't love Him the same....If you put no effort into your walk your heart will grow hardened toward God..... There is a balance between Grace and Faith....

every day I can sense very strongly that in spite of the difficulty of the days in which we live, God is drawing His people closer to Himself. The days are coming to a close and The Lord is weening His Children from the things of this earth... Look up, Your redemption draws near.........

Angie and I love you all and looking forward to ministry in a place near you soon. Thanks for believing in the call on my Life and for sending us!  Blessings,
Len

June 9 Update

Well friends, Partners and supporters of the ministry,

June has gotten off to a great start. June 4 and 5 Angie and I were very blessed to attend 3 services of the Joyce Meyer conference in Grand Rapids MI.... She taught on the Holy Spirit and my heart was so stirred.. Sometimes we need to go back to the foundations and rekindle the flames... Amen..

Right away Angie and I felt led of the Lord to help with the water wells that the Joyce Meyer ministries is providing around the world...

I was supposed to be in South Bend IN June 9 and 10 but this morning as I was on my way, a deer ran into my car and put it out of traveling commission for just a few days until we get it repaired ... I will be renting a vehicle if needed until ours is ready and we will be rescheduling the Indiana events for later in the summer......


God has been pouring forth a heavier anointing than I ever remember on the messages and TV work lately... Some of the new messages the Lord is giving me cut right to the heart of living as a Christian in the Last Days and you have seen some of the clips already that we did in Virginia but the new ones are even more straight to the point. We can't wait to share them here with you!

In times of prayer together, and its imperative that married couples pray together often in the days we are living in, God has been speaking a phrase to Angie and I that has a particular meaning to us that we knew right away and in the next few days I will be sharing this with you... The phrase is "Open up and Re dig some old wells".

We truly feel that we are coming into a new season once again in this ministry and God has said it will be a Good Season.. I really need all of you to stand with us with your prayers and Giving in this time. I have had several major visions of what God wants to accomplish and I don't yet even have words to tell it!

So, be watching the blog closely for the next several weeks. New Teachings and major announcements on the way.. God bless you friends......

Word From Bishop Coulter: What Are You Speaking?

Dear TMCI Family,
What are you speaking?
James 3:8-10
8 But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9 With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. 10 Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so. NKJV
What we speak does make a difference; we should always speak life into people and not death. This does not mean we do not speak the truth in love when we see some of our people go into sin or false doctrine. Gal 6:1 tells us to help our brothers - not to criticize but to help them. Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted.
We are to build each other up and not tear each other down. Unfortunately I have seen Christians "tearing each other down" too many times. God bought this subject of speaking in love to me when I read the account of Paul on the Damascus Road.  Jesus asked "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?" He did not say, "Saul why are you persecuting My followers," but "why are you persecuting Me." He showed me that every time I speak against other Christians or Christian denominations, I am pulling down the name of Christ. We must remember to attack the sin, not the sinner. I find that we, as Christians, sometimes let our politics get in the way of our speaking the truth in love.  There are some politicians I do not agree with (and I am sure you feel the same) and that is our right as citizens, but as a Christian I must pray against the sin in our nation and not the sinner.  Ask God to move on the hearts of our leaders to make Godly decisions and to send Godly reformers into all aspects of our nation. We must pray life into our nation and ask God to heal our land.
As Christians, we must support each other.  This becomes more important each day. No longer can we let petty jealousy or envy invade our minds. We must support each other in love and by our actions. I know this would never happen to you, but it has happened to me. I have had someone leave my ministry and move on to something else.  I would then have "well-meaning friends" come and tell me all that they were doing; the good and especially the bad. These "friends" were sure I would want to know. This "messenger from Satan" was trying to kill both ministries. They would tell me things that they hoped would bring dissension between our ministries - a great trick of Satan. Here is how I put a stop to such nonsense. If  the news was good, I say, "praise God - lets you and I pray for them right now and ask God to bless them more"; if it was bad, I would say,  "well, they need our prayers so lets you and I pray that God will help through this adversity. Trust me. that type of person will not be back and Satan will be defeated.  We will all at one time or other have people leave our ministries.   When they do, send them away with a blessing and then release them. Remember their method of ministry may be different from yours, but it does not mean it is wrong. Let God direct their path and let God direct your path. Do not let Satan steal your joy and blessings. Speak life into others' lives. Remember, what you sow is what you reap, so sow blessings.
Praying for God's best in your lives,
Bishop Bob Coulter


This post was an email sent out by the Bishop of the Group that we are honored to be ordained with.. Very Encouraging to Angie and I to be serving with folks like these.....
