Experience Church at its Finest

Experience Church at its Finest

How many of you remember the Azusa conferences? They were a powerful combination of music and ministry, bringing together people of all backgrounds, faiths, and denominations. In 1988, Bishop Carlton Pearson gathered some of the most powerful minds and spiritual leaders in the world, and began the annual Azusa conference. They were an international platform for ministries, often drawing over 50,000 people per event! Today could be your day to discover and experience the transforming, prophetic power of Pentecostal history. I’m talking about the Azusa Classics Collection — a DVD collection of digitally remastered Azusa conferences spanning 15 incredible years. I can’t begin to capture the power and scope of this collection, but here are the highlights of what’s included in the 6-CD series: Bishop T.D. Jakes’ sermon, “Divine Strategies” from the 1997 Azusa conference. Archbishop Veron Ashe’s “The Heritage of Jacob” from the 2000 Azusa conference. Joyce Meyer, “Moses is Dead,” from the 1993 Azusa conference. Jackie McCullough’s “A Message from the Heart,” delivered at the 1994 Azusa. Myles Munroe’s “The Purpose and Vision” sermon from the 1991 Azusa Conference. Pastor Michael Pitts’ message, “The Heaven and Earth Agreement,” delivered at the 2001 Azusa conference. Incredible, right? Imagine getting to witness the power of these uplifting messages from titans of faith, just like you were in the room with them, with preachers getting people right on the edges of their seats! This collection is your opportunity to experience the power of people like the late, great Myles Munroe and Archbishop Veron Ashe in these timeless sermons. If you remember the Azusa conferences, take this opportunity to reconnect with them...
Step Into God’s Time

Step Into God’s Time

Time is our most valuable asset. It defines and measures all that we do. It is always moving, and every second counts! Unfortunately, as important as it is, so many people don’t understand time. That’s because most people only see natural time, which is vastly different from spiritual time. Minutes, hours, days, and years of natural time don’t operate on the same level as spiritual time. What’s at work in the natural realm is already done in the spiritual realm, because God’s time moves faster than ours! He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. — Ecclesiastes 3:11 My 1onONE guest, Patience Dean, talked about the difference between chronos and kairos time, and the dispensations that occur between them. Chronos time is what we experience in the natural realm — clock time that can be measured in seconds, minutes, hours, years. Kairos time, she explained, is God’s spiritual time zone. Dispensations are blessings God pours into our lives at precise moments when spiritual and natural time overlap. Her book, Dispensations in Time, explains how different time is for all of us, and how we all have special seasons of dispensations from God. So many of us don’t understand the true spectrum of time and where we are in it. Because we don’t know how to look at time correctly, fear and anxiety creep into our lives. When we are gripped by fear and only see the natural realm, we miss out on God’s dispensations! Understanding spiritual time helps...

Experience the Word of God Like Never Before

The Bible. It’s the living Word of God, powerful and transformative. It’s the greatest story ever told! We all know as Christians that we grow by spending time every day in God’s Word. But sometimes the language and the history can be hard to connect with, and life will often get in the way when we try to quiet down our minds and dive deep into the life affirming, spirit renewing truth that we need for our lives.
