Read THE BEGINNING PRIMER on Silvana's Blog

I was reading the post on Silvana's blog called ALL THAT HE ASKS OF US. That post is like a primer, a beginning reader for Jesus' remnant. It sums up where things are in the spirit right now. It is vital to understand what is being said there, so we can go on with the Father in this war against Satan. Everyone should read this post and ponder it, as it lays a foundation upon which the Holy Spirit will build.
The post talks about the nature of our opponent, our enemy, who is Satan. He is murderous. This cannot be understood solely with the mind, with a shallow, cartoon outlook on Satan, but must be faced up to and realized with the help of the Holy Spirit. Silvana is right: prophets care. They care about the Father, they care about evil, they care about great suffering, and so must we. Are we Jesus' bride? Then, we will not turn our face away from suffering, nor from what the Holy Spirit wants to teach us. Are we truly His? Then, we will talk to the Father about these things, so we can be equiped to stand against the enemy and his ideas and his works and his nature. By leaving our own sin, our own selfishness our own putting ourself over others, we come against the nature of sin itself, which is Satan's nature. When we leave sin, we leave him. When we love the Father, and look to Him for wisdom and look to Him for His will, not our own, then we particpate in exhibiting the Father's love and His nature, as Job did when he praised God in the midst of the terrible things happening to him. As we continue to listen to the Holy Spirit, He will teach us and we need His teaching, we need His leading, for the days ahead.

OJP Banners

Yesterday Stephan's Sign Stop finished the banners that we had ordered for OJP in Rwanda and OJP in Ghana. We mailed the banner to Pastor Jean so they could have it to put up for the King's Feast on Christmas Day. Click on links to see a picture of the banners:
Tonight I was talking to two different people on the phone about the situations in their lives and both of them said the exact same thing in all sincerity, "I trust the Father". What beautiful statements of faith! I look forward to seeing what the Father does for each of them, because I know He is going to help them. He sees their faith in Him and He loves them.
Brother Joseph received the money for his rent and his electricty is now turned on. They received their package of Christmas gifts and they said that the children were happy with everything. Click here to read the email that he sent to us about this today.

OJP blog sites

We have posted two new blog sites so we can post information and letters from Brother Joseph in Ghana and Pastor Jean in Rwanda.

OJP in Ghana:

OJP in Rwanda:

The Father said that this coming year will be a year of expansion, so we look to see His provision and His leading, both in Ghana and in Rwanda, and in OJP in America, and all over the world.
