God speaks to His people!

God created the universe with speaking . . . “Let there be . . . ”

Today, through Jesus Christ, He lives in you. How do you learn to hear Him speaking into your heart, and really know it’s Him?

Kingdom Faith Ministries International is devoted to helping God’s people learn to hear and obey His still small voice. Deuteronomy 8 declares that God’s purpose in having His people wander in the wilderness for 40 years was to learn to hear and live by every word that proceeded from His mouth.

God is still speaking, and like the Israelites, we must learn how to hear Him with confidence and precision. Are you eager to hear what the Lord Jesus Christ is speaking today to those who have discovered how to find Him in the secret place and drink from His fountain of Living Water? He will invite you to sit on His throne if you overcome in the pursuit of hearing His voice (Revelation 3:21).

In Whom is No Guile
Thursday, November 29, 2018
Dr. Paul D. Norcross

Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!  (John 1:47)

One of the defining differences between the Kingdom of God and another person’s kingdom is their agenda.

The word “guile” means crafty, using deceit, a trick or bait that is (figuratively) wily with subtlety. Instead of having a pure heart that is tender and open to God, a person with guile is calculating toward accomplishing his or her own agenda, often to make a reputation and claim credit for it.

Where a pastor has such calculation, God’s favor is absent. As a result, the agenda advances without God’s blessing. Instead of doors opening with ease by God, the agenda-driven pastor becomes a lobbyist.  Consider someone who searches the worldwide Internet for new donors to their ministry or orphanage, church building project, or other Christian-sounding cause. How about those who add to themselves new titles (apostle, bishop, prophetess) and circulate impressive poster photos of themselves as leader of a new crusade.

These can be common examples of guile. The reason a person with guile has to self-promote is because the Holy Spirit isn’t. The Holy Spirit avoids promoting the one who seeks to advance his own kingdom.  

Let me share an experience I had several years ago in a remote part of the southern Kenyan bush country. I was asked to run our first pastors’ School of Ministry. During the planning phases, my host pastor pressed me several times to provide photos and finances to print advertising posters. The Lord told me to say no, that Jesus would never promote Himself. 

My host was extremely disappointed. He felt that without advertising, only about 12 pastors would show up. But I told him the Holy Spirit would send out the invitations.

The day came to start the school. Over 250 pastors came! My host pastor was astonished. Not only did pastors arrive from all across the country but they came from all denominations. He explained that this was unheard of, even with advertising using banners towed behind low flying airplanes, as is commonly done in the bush. 

My host wanted me to pay for renting a sound system. I said no. Jesus did not need to use one, and I had no money.

Now twelve years and 30,000+ pastor training school graduates later, I find the same principles apply. If we keep our hearts pure, and stop calculating our way into growing our ministry, if we instead learn to hear and obey the Lord’s voice only, then the Holy Spirit will partner with us.

In Nathan, Jesus found a man who did not rely on his own agenda. He had no guile. When we seek God’s wisdom alone, when we wait for His direction, we do so from a place of rest. And in that place, we cease from our works, and thus He can do His.

At Kingdom Faith Ministries International, we refuse to use guile. Instead, we teach pastors (nearly 10,000 this year alone) how to hear and obey God’s voice, how to operate all nine manifestations of Holy Spirit power, and how to overcome witchcraft and curses.  

We have never advertised. We let the Holy Spirit do that. He joyfully continues to do so as we keep our hearts pure and obedient without guile. 

Pastor, friend, are you like Nathan?

All Africa Shall Be Saved

Could the next great revival be on the horizon?

Throughout history, Christian revivals have brought the message of Christ to different parts of the world, often affecting the Church for decades to come.

Many believe Africa is fertile ground for a major revival, as recent years have seen prolific spiritual hunger across its nations. Because of this, many ministries are supporting work in Africa, including Kingdom Faith Ministries International (KFMI).

The demand for KFMI’s pastor training schools has been growing exponentially, with at least 5,000 pastors currently waiting to attend a KFMI School of Ministry

What initiated this great desire, and where could it lead? 

The Great East African Revival of 1929 was arguably one of the most famous and influential African spiritual movements of the twentieth century. Many believe the effects of this revival are still being felt across African countries today. 

By definition, a revival is a reawakening of people turning to Christ, usually through evangelistic meetings led by great preachers—such as DL Moody, John Wesley, Charles Spurgeon, and Hudson Taylor. 

Yet not all revivals are led by powerful evangelists. Some—such as the Great East African Revival of 1929—are initiated through lay people and simple means. 

At the helm of this revival were John Edward Church[1], a British medical missionary to Rwanda and Simeon Nsibambi, a young Christian leader from Uganda. Both shared dissatisfaction with the low spiritual condition of the church, and had reached a personal state of “acute spiritual dryness.” After spending two days together in prayer and Bible reading, each experienced the “transformative power of the Holy Spirit.”

With renewed zeal, the two men began extending love and full sharing[2]with fellow Africans—regardless of class, station, or race—through small group fellowship meetings. Such gatherings quickly spread throughout homes and villages, as Christians met to share their testimonies and desire for the deeper Christian life.

Distinctive features of the East African Revival were:

  • No famous preacher was leading its efforts. John Church never claimed to be the leader of the revival, but considered himself a co-worker with the Holy Spirit. 
  • Revival sprang from two wonderful Christians with a love for the people and a heart to reach them. 
  • Small group meetings were led mostly by lay people. Great impact spread from the grassroots level, and continued for several decades.
  • Emphasis was on the saving power of Christ and daily submission to Him. Other themes were messages of sin, repentance, and forgiveness, rather than the gifts of the Holy Spirit such as speaking in tongues and supernatural healing.
  • Public confession of hidden sins was common, followed by a desire for holy living.

In time, the East African Revival was presented as a model for renewal movements of the Holy Spirit to other countries, including Switzerland, France and Germany in the late 1940s, and Malawi, Angola, India, Brazil, Israel, and the United States in the early 1950s.

Clearly, God initiates revival as a result of deep repentance—regret or remorse and a turning to God with humility—occurring in peoples’ hearts. Intense prayer for revival typically follows. 

There are no formulas for how God accomplishes this, nor are there models for how all revivals develop. Each is a unique time in the unfolding of God’s great story throughout Scripture.

Could the next great revival be imminent in Africa?

It’s exciting to consider that the groundwork of repentance and faith that was laid through the great East African Revival of 1929 and subsequent decades, may have set the foundation for the current hunger we’re experiencing across Africa.

African pastors and churches today are desiring greater intimacy with the Lord, and learning to live by the power of the Holy Spirit—core to KFMI’s teachings.

Our vision for Africa is that all have the opportunity to hear the message of salvation through Christ. As more and more pastors are trained in learning to hear the Lord’s voice, and in utilizing the power of the Holy Spirit, they will in turn teach others.

What an exciting time to be alive! God is on the move and we each have the joy and privilege of joining Him in His work. 

What might this look like for you?
