Back to the future

It’s been too long since I last posted a blog on this site, and one thing I can’t stand is ‘old outdated news’…well I’m guilty of it, not because I have nothing to share or say, but because sometimes it’s hard to keep up with the many and varied communication tools out there, and simply having time to stop and write, is an accomplishment!

So what’s the purpose of a Bushfire Ministries blog? To provide a small update frequently, with a personal touch, sharing what’s going on in Bushfire for the sake of the church family, and also for the wider family of Bushfire friends, who have shown love and interest in us for many years.

Here we are in 2015, and with the many prophecies and experiences that we have shared both corporately as a body, and individually, we are not saying anything new by announcing that this year is an extraordinary one, and we will all move swiftly into our destiny, with greater urgency than before. We don’t have time for lack of forgiveness, or for unresolved issues to hold us back. God is seeking those who say YES to Him wholeheartedly, with a passion and deep love….and all other things need to step out of the way to make room for prioritising the Lord first.

Sometimes we have to go back, in order to go forward. A lovely picture of an arrow being pulled backward, before being unleashed speaks a thousand words. In order to go forward, we need to revisit things of the past and deal with them, once and for all.

As 2015 progresses, let’s find ourselves at the feet of Boaz, under His covering and collecting the harvest in the area assigned to us. Let’s not be busy looking at other’s giftings, behaviour or calling…let’s pursue Him first and foremost…and be a blessing to one another, stirring each other up to love and good deeds.

With blessings and prayers for a great month of March!

The Bridegroom is coming to Britain

We’ve had the most amazing few days with Dennis and Lynnie Walker, and team Wes and Calvin from Dunamis Apostolic Resource Centre in Las Vegas. Wow!!! Wow!!! Wow!!!

Anyone who’s been around us and Bushfire over the past couple of years will know one of our key verses is John 5:19 when Jesus Himself says that He can only do what He sees His Father doing (in heaven). So the key is for us who love and want to follow the footsteps of Jesus, we also need to tune in and copy and act out everything that we see the Lord doing…who is in heaven. We know that according to Ephesians 2:6 we are seated with Christ in heavenly places, so this is not ‘news’. So how do you tune in?

I won’t mess it up, have a listen to the four sessions by Dennis Walker, ‘Catching the Initiatives of Heaven’, and let’s all grow up to be the fully matured sons and daughters of God – who are truly led by the Holy Spirit in all parts of our lives – not just during a Christian meeting – but throughout the day and night. Romans 8:14.

With Neville Johnson leaving sunny Australia to join us in Sheffield next week, we highly recommend you register to join the conference from Wednesday night, 31st October till Saturday 3rd November. It will be an incredible time!!! If you can’t come to each day of the conference, you can also buy just day delegate sessions.

And boy, while we were having amazing breakthrough in worship on Saturday 20th October, Julie Meyer stands up and prophetically sings over Britain and Europe – you’ve got to hear her song here! 

So see you soon – don’t miss it for anything.

 

 

 

Dancing in the River

Yes! I totally believe that corporate worship is powerful, that unity in faith and spirit can transform cities, and that when we get together as ‘church’, it should be passionate, sincere, genuine and…fun!

A massive thank you to Ginnie White who held a Dance Workshop on Saturday at Bushfire that was open to anyone willing to explore worship with movement! The power of dance in intercession and worship is mostly overlooked, or considered to be something only for the tall, lanky and athletic. Well my 4 yr old boy and 86 yr old Dad absolutely loved it, as did the 25 others of all ages, and I believe it’s the start of something at Bushfire. The style of dance really encourages community through warmth, caring, friendship and honouring the Lord.

This freedom of dance transferred to the Sunday meeting when Ian & Denise Grant from Romford joined us, and during the spontaneous worship the majoity of the Bushfire Family were out of their seats, passionately declaring the goodness of God! The talk subsequent talk by Ian Grant is a must-hear for anyone who considers themselves part of the Body of Christ, or wishes to connect more with Bushfire.

So what do you expect from Church? Are you part of a church because God placed you there? Ian and Denise have over 20 years experience of leading Immanuel Community Church in Romford, and are a real gift to the Body of Christ. Take a listen here and be challenged with the rest of us.

Love and blessings to you all!
