The Lord of the Harvest is answering our prayers and calling church planters to enter into communities of poverty to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ, make disciples of those who respond to the good news, and gather these believers into new churches.  It’s an encouragement that God is true to Himself desiring that none should be eternally separated from the joy of His Kingdom. 

The harvest field of souls is extremely complex.  The fields that are ripe unto harvest are vast and intermingled with cultures, complex issues that come with poverty, religions antagonistic to Christianity and of course, a Kingdom of Darkness intent of hindering the Gospel and keeping souls shackled in spiritual bondage.  It requires much prayer, creativity, and flexibility from the Evangel Deans who are equipping church plant teams.  Praise God for the Holy Spirit who provides the power, provision and creativity to address these complexities.  Dr. Maurice Mathu Omulubi, is the Apostolic Bishop at City of

Read Fiction for Christ's Sake

Read Fiction for Christ’s Sake

‘Make the most of the time, because the days are evil’ says Paul to the Ephesian church (5.16). Somehow many of my brothers and sisters have taken this as an injunction against reading fiction. ‘Why would we spend time on something that is essentially a lie?’ says the diligent Christian. Never mind the time that we waste on so many other useless pursuits.

Sadly, this seems to be a case where many Christians use Paul’s words as their excuse for not having read a novel since their senior year of sophomore school. I say ‘No’ to this nonsense. Give me a good novel over a spiritual how-to book every day of the week. The problem with fiction is that it does not tell you what it means. It is dangerously open-ended and vague. It can strike readers in hundreds of different ways.

I am here to say that not only is this a good thing, but it is an essential concept that we need if we are to understand why people interpret the Bible so differently from one another. At

If God Gave Revival to the City, What Would it Look Like?

If you are a believer, you probably have some idea of what revival looks like, or, at the very least, have longed for an extraordinary move of God to come in your family, church, and city.  Within believing circles, saints and congregations have historically prayed for revival.  Prayer concerts, camp meetings, special services, all night vigils, and seasons of seeking God dot our various church calendars, albeit less than a century ago.  Still, believers long for revival, for a fresh visitation of the Lord, for renewal of faith, for corresponding actions of justice and compassion, and for an abundant harvest of souls.

Often times, though, we associate revival with wild eyed preaching, scary spiritual manifestation, or targeted rants against particular social sins.  Those who do not wish to be associated with fanaticism will steer clear of revival speech, not wanting to be connected to an Elmer Gantry-style outreach of weird peop

Revival Blog: Steps to Revival

Steps to Revival

I am distressed at the zeal of heretics and at the amnesia of the believers.
— Leonard Ravenhill

Everything in me knows that true spirituality is not the end result of a cook-book process.  You can no more dictate to the Lord what he will do and when he will do it than you can predict next week’s weather conditions.  We use models, science, instruments, and logic, but, all too often, we still get it wrong.

Throughout my Christian life I have come to understand that “God moves in a mysterious way, his wonders to perform.”  He cannot be coaxed or manipulated into doing something that he does not want to do; prayer is not a form of magic or divine mind control.  God desires to move in regard to our prayers, but has made it clear that he seeks those who will worship him in spirit and in truth.  He is not an ephemeral figure in a lamp that is ready and willing to allow us to splurge our wanton pleasures after we have made them known to him.

Revival is that amazing condition

"Everyone of any epoch or place that comes to Christ through the word of the Spirit is in fact a child of God. Where the Spirit is, so there is liberty, and now we have received the Spirit of adoption as God’s children, crying like little children, “Abba! Father!” Now, through faith, we are children and heirs of God in Christ." Rev. Dr. Don L. Davis
