Having travelled the nation of Brazil for 21 years I have seen many transitions. Beginning from my work with the brothers in the Methodist Church where I recall our glorious experiences as many would be baptized in the Holy Spirit, speak in tongues. I remember how many transitioned into the Pentecostal/Charismatic season where we were witnesses of great manifestations of God as signs and wonders followed us everywhere. Who could forget the manifestation of gold dust or the manifestation of oil or the eyes of the blind woman being opened or the many women who were barren who were delivered?
These continual accompaniments of the miracles of God ensured my continued passion for this nation. About twelve years ago God ushered His people into the apostolic/reformation season where the emphasis shifted from the believers being fixated on the manifestations to studying the doctrine of the apostles which placed a great demand on the reformation of the church in accordance to the pattern that is established by the early church in Acts 42.
And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.
This clearly defines the four building blocks of any ministry.
And now, here we are, standing at the threshold of yet another season in God. We call it the “post apostolic” season.
This season demands that we function from His Presence……His Glory
Functioning from a spiritual Zion….God’s Holy Mountain.
This is clearly a season to build and to plant.
“The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, The leopard shall lie down with the young goat,
The calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little child shall lead them.
7 The cow and the bear shall graze; Their young ones shall lie down together;
And the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 8 The nursing child shall play by the cobra’s hole,
And the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper’s den. 9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea.
What a great expectation! What great joy! We announce this new season in God!
